Many of our favorite divas have taken hit after hit, only to bounce back, bigger and better than ever. Gay men certainly take their share of hard knocks in life -- maybe we identify with their resilience?
I admit that it's plausible for a 48-year-old woman to transform herself at will from an invisible hag into a noticed and admired woman, but when you're 60, or 70 (as I am) you're permanently in the 'invisible' category, unless you're, say, Joan Collins or Jane Fonda.
Collins' influence stretches beyond the festive hand tossing of Tinseltown glitter, however. Her charitable outreach -- from The National Center for Learning Disabilities to the prevention of child cruelty in the UK -- stand out.
We're honestly as shocked as you are that no one made this yet. Special thanks to the Robertson clan, Chris Hardwick, and of course the incomparable...
Squalor, sewers, Dickensian suffering, a splendor of operatic riches! If you are director Tom Hooper, how do you follow the drama of the multi-Oscar winning King's Speech?
In this roundup of new DVDs and Blu-Rays, we take a look at the darker-than-dark noir film The Killer Inside Me, the "Mexican New Wave" drama I'm Gonna Explode, and a slew of recently released TV shows.
The 2010-11 television season has only just begun and it's already taking several unexpected twists and turns, resulting in important lessons and interesting observations for all. Here are ten of them.
Earlier this year, the director James Ivory of Merchant Ivory Productions paid touching tribute in the Times to his late partner-producer of 40 years, Ismail Merchant. Recalling this, I am moved to write about my own experience with the man.
I'm probably going to start calling this season Project Runway: Eight is Enough as soon as the novelty has worn off after ten minutes or two cocktails, whichever comes first. But I love it, you see, so I can't let it go.
Hi guys! Before I start this week's recap, I have a few public service announcements: First and most importantly, I will not be doing a recap next we...
Virgin America invited me to attend the in-flight premiere of Fly Girls, a docu-series that follows the lives of five flight attendants.
When HuffPost asked me to do some Fashion Week coverage for them, I looked down at my Payless flats and canvas carry-all and said, essentially, Moi? Arianna, girl, is you crazy?
The designers splashed big hot Campbell's soup messes all over women recovering from major surgery and it was a Very Special Episode, albeit one that unfortunately resulted in terrible garments.
It's morning at the Atlas apartments. A sleepy Anna gazes longingly at Ping's empty bed as if thinking "Oh the fun we had, draping each other in burlap and rolling down Madison Avenue!"
I like Lost. A lot. I've watched it from its spectacular cinematic beginning in the fall of 2004. I've probably seen every episode. And I'm still not sure what's really going on.
