If you miss hearing this every Sunday night before being engulfed in all the scandalous drama of Wisteria Lane, join the club. This month marks the 10-year anniversary of the Desperate Housewives premiere, one of the sexiest, most iconic guilty pleasures in TV history. VH1 reminisced with America’s dream husband Mike Delfino (James Denton) and lovable loon Katherine Mayfair (Dana Delany) about the series and what made it so juicy, on and off set.
The greatest movies and TV shows depend on the chemistry of the leads. Right? Whether it’s a love thing or platonic, the vibe between the costars can make or break a viewing experience. The funny thing is, even in shows and films where the chemistry is working — where the actors are giddily smiling in each others’ faces, making out, having wild sex, or cracking wise — this has zero bearing on whether or not the actors like each other when the cameras stop rolling (and in some cases, a visceral hatred of each other can produce onscreen magic!). For every Ashton Ku
Did you know that the two funniest Golden Girls, Bea Arthur and Bette White, were at each other’s throats for the entire series? Just goes to show you that, for every Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis — That 70s Show castmates who ended up being soul mates — there’s a couple of co-stars each plotting the other’s demise the second the curtains close.
Here, our twenty favorite co-stars who actually hated each other!

Harry Potter starlet Bonnie Wright showed up at Jo Malone’s Thoroughly Proper Party in London on Wednesday lacking her long flowing locks. After years of being linked to her character Ginny Weasley with trademark titan tresses, maybe she followed in the footsteps of Emma Watson, who famously cropped her hair as soon as the series ended to get some distance from the franchise. Or she’s just hopping on the short hair band wagon!
It seems like ever A-lister has gotten the urge to hack of the hair this year. Some like Anne Hathaway, Charlize Theron and Evangeline Lilly went super short for film roles, whereas former American Idol singer Kellie Pickler got a buzz to support her friend being treated for cancer. And then there are music mama’s like Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys who went short just for the hell of it. Head on down to the gallery below to see 20 lovely ladies who took the hair plunge in 2012!

James Bond is back, and by all accounts better than ever! After far too many years away, Daniel Craig’s Agent 007 is hitting the big screen once again with Skyfall. The film has been leaving British audiences stunned for several weeks, so we can’t wait to go and check it out for ourselves! There are so many reasons to see a Bond flick: the action packed gun battles, the suspenseful hand to hand combat sequences, the (usually) incredible title songs, the increasingly insane technology, the sweet cars and of course the hunky Mr. Bond himself. But there’s also the legendary Bond Girls squad. Sometimes they love him, sometimes they hate him: sometimes they help him, and other times they try to kill him. But you can be sure that they’re always jaw-droppingly gorgeous! So in honor of Bond-Mania sweeping the world yet again, we’ve assembled a list of our 20 favorite Bond Girls of all time. Enjoy!

Megan Fox shut down all Botox rumors about herself for good yesterday! In what we think is a pretty hilarious move, Megan uploaded an album on her official Facebook page called “Things You Can’t Do With Your Face When You Have Botox.” She then proceeded to scrunch that gorgeous mug of hers up to show *gaspohnoNOway*… wrinkles! Remember when Teri Hatcher did the same, wrapped in a towel of all things! On a side note — are Meg’s eyes really that blue? ‘Cause they’re just dreamy! Folks, just accept the fact that some people are just weirdly genetically gifted like that. Case closed. Although, we bet that pout of hers is going to start a collagen debate now!

We’d lost track of how many Pirates of the Caribbean films have been churned out so far, but obviously the rest of the world hasn’t. And thanks to the massive premiere Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides had yesterday at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, we now know that the franchise is up to its fourth installment now. But this wasn’t any other screening. Apart from a slinky black carpet instead of the usual red, this was the world’s first outdoor 3-D premiere! An open-air theater was specially constructed and tickets to attend ran at $1,000 a pop. Which was a very nice touch because all proceeds from the premiere were donated to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
The cast turned up in full force with Penelope Cruz, Johnny Depp, Keith Richards (and his wife, Patti Hansen), Geoffrey Rush, the intriguingly named Astrid Berges-Frisbey and our new golden boy Sam Claflin. Apart from them, Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens were spotted being all BFF, Jodie Foster turned up in sunglasses (at night), Steven Tyler hung out with Mickey Mouse and Lorenzo Lamas brought his fifth wife Shawna Craig. The Dancing With The Stars crew showed up too, with Bruno Tonioli, Lacey Schwimmer, Chelsie Hightower, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy walking the
plank carpet. And American Idol blasts from the pasts too — we know you remember David Cook, but how about Blake Lewis?! Lots more to look at in our gallery below.

Plenty of stars turned up to watch the L.A Lakers beat the New Orleans Hornets at Staples Center yesterday. What’s even cuter is that most of them decided to make it a day with the family as well. David Beckham brought his son Brooklyn, Tom Cruise brought his son, Connor and Simon Baker brought his son, Harry. Meanwhile, Teri Hatcher was looking quite animated throughout the game with her father, Owen. Nothing like sitting front row with Dad, huh? We think it’s adorable, and you will too once you look at the pictures in the gallery below.

Friends, while we were all marveling at the boniness of Taylor Swift‘s bare feet last night, Teri Hatcher was busy in the seas swimming like a delicate dolphin in a wet suit, leaving us to ask, “how could we miss this glorious moment?!” Yes, ol’ Ter-dawg competed in the Malibu Triathlon this weekend to raise money for Los Angeles ChildrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Hospital, which is good and awesome and decent of her.
We celebrate any time a celebrate looks like than perfect, especially when it’s for a good cause. You know most of the celebs we cover wouldn’t be caught dead in a wet suit (er, except Will.i.am. apparently), so we trust this means Teri’s heart actually still beats real blood and that she might even – gasp! – feel things. Bravo, Teri. You just moved up a notch on the ‘Celebs We Never Expect To Love But Totes Do’ list.
When Julia Roberts slipped on her little black dress for the Eat, Pray, Love premiere, little did she know that, in a bathroom a couple of miles away, an homage inspired by her was being prepared. Roberts had recently made a stand about Botox and face fillers saying any tweaking definitely wasn’t for her. She stated, “… I want my kids to know when I’m p***ed, when I’m happy, and when I’m confounded. Your face tells a story and it shouldn’t be a story about your drive to the doctor’s office.”
, victim to many a Botox controversy
, decided to put her best face forward a la
Julia. So post a nice long shower, wrapped in a towel and completely make-up free, the 45-year-old actress whipped out her camera. She ended up snapping a montage of shots of her face (contorted to bring out the wrinkles) and posted them up on her Facebook fan page
writing, “Out of the bath getting ready for bed. Thought about all those damn critics of my face. Love it or hate it, my face that is, no surgery, no implants, no matter what “they” say. Decided I’d shoot myself in to reveal some truths about “beauty” and hope it makes you all easier on yourself.” She also admitted to past Botox use, but clears up the air once and for all, that she she’s done and has been
done for a while now.
How does Julia Roberts tie into this? Teri explained, “I can be mad, or confused or sad and tired. Julia Roberts had that same vein in her forehead in Eat Pray Love. Proud of Julia for being a real woman on a real journey.” Nice…it’s like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Rants!
So much for solidarity on Wisteria Lane. The actresses on Desperate Housewives have pledged their support for show creator Marc Cherry, who is accused of hitting their former co-star Nicollette Sheridan. All four of the original housewives, Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria, Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman, have released a statement that describes their workplace as a wonderful place that has been a blessing to be a part of, which is far from the hostile work environment Sheridan claims in her lawsuit against Cherry. The statement reads:
It would be irresponsible of us to let the public believe that being a part of this show from its inception has been anything but a blessing. We have no first-hand knowledge of what Nicollette may or may not have experienced, but we would never characterize our set as a hostile environment.It is, in fact, the opposite. The friendships and support that Marc Cherry, the cast, the crew and the producers have shared for the past six years have made this a wonderful job that we are grateful for every day.
Maybe Nicollette and Heidi Montag can grab a box of wine together and commiserate over the fact that no one on either of their shows supports their accusations of trouble on the set.
