"Real Housewives of New Jersey" breakout star Rosie Pierri on why she decided to come out on TV.
Last season, they flashed me in a few times on the show and I knew I was going to be caught on camera again ‘cause I’m with my sister and the kids and Richie [Kathy’s husband] a lot. So the viewers — it’s not rocket science to figure it out! So I figured they’re gonna see some things, maybe [the tabloids] would say some things or whatever. And the kids, I was getting worried about that.
I didn’t want them to find out that way. I would rather them be talked to about it before they hear. They’re very innocent children, even though they are older. Victoria was 17 and Joey was 15. They didn’t know. They don’t look at me like that; they look at me as their Aunt Rosie. They see as me as funny, happy, having a good time, kidding around. That’s what they see. They don’t see somebody who is gay or not gay; they have a loving heart.
Laura Prudom breaks down why the White Guy With Guitar trend on “American Idol” isn’t cutting it.
Why is this an issue, you may ask? Why not let the excitable teenage girls (and the older women who should probably know better) have their fun and flood the phone lines with votes for these attractive, guitar-plucking fellas? Simply put, because those attractive, guitar-plucking fellas don’t actually do that well once they’ve ventured out of “Idol’s” protective embrace and are expected to sell albums under their own steam — and that’s a problem for “Idol” as much as for the winners themselves.
With the two year anniversary of the “Lost” series finale upon us and the conclusions of “Desperate Housewives” and “House” this season, Maureen Ryan and Maggie Furlong ranked the best TV series finales. Ever. What’s your favorite series finale?
“Well, my big hope was to roll the cameras and have us show up and get in costume. That’s looking good. Beyond that, I think all of us are hoping for some love interests this fall, of one sort or another. Everyone needs to get some.”—
“This finale was incredibly hard to write. I did not enjoy it. It made me sick and it made me sad. We end the season not knowing ANYTHING about the future. Except for two things. We know we are definitely saying goodbye to two of my favorite people …”—"Grey’s Anatomy" creator Shonda Rhimes on the Season 8 finale.
