That being said, I think everyone can identify with a Britney. I’d like to think that I’m “Sometimes” Britney, while Ryan [Murphy] is definitely “Toxic” Britney and Zach [Woodlee] is “Oops!…I Did It Again” Britney. Which Britney do you think you are? [Laughs.] That’s amazing! You know what? I’ve never been a fan, and I’ve never been a hater. I’m just kind of indifferent when it comes to Britney. But I didn’t mind being “Baby One More Time” Britney.
Ready for the fifth and final season? I was on set for the series finale — my lips are still sealed — but you can read what Glenn Close and Rose Byrne had to say about the final season and saying goodbye to these now iconic characters. Plus, check HuffPost TV later for a post-premiere story with new details from KZK, Rose and Glenn.
How are you saying goodbye to Ellen? Bit by bit, I guess. It’s been really fun this season because she’s been pushed and she’s done a lot of compromising things and a lot of fun things, things that I haven’t gotten to do before. She’s slowly become tougher and tougher and tougher. [Laughs.]
Back in March I went to the set of “Damages.” They were filming the series finale. To say it was a special experience is an understatement. I spent about a half hour with Glenn Close, this is the result.
I’m ready to move on. I feel a great sense of closure in that I think this season is a really good one. It has some great stuff about Patty and her life that people don’t really know, reasons for her behavior.
"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."
If you’re a “Real Housewives of New Jersey” fan (you know you secretly are), then you really need to read Jaimie Etkin’s interview with Caroline Manzo. It’s very honest, funny and a tiny bit sad, especially this part about her relationship with sister and former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Dina Manzo.
And now, most viewers of the show know — from the Season 3 reunion and the Season 4 trailer — that Teresa has driven a wedge between you and Dina. When I first saw that, it broke my heart. How are you two now? It’s the same. And if it breaks your heart, can you imagine how I feel? I remember the day she was born. I decorated her cradle. I remember when my mom told me she was pregnant with her. I’m 11 years older than Dina. She’s more than my baby sister, but again, I have never shied away from anything negative and I’ve said many many times, “Look at the footage.” We fight. I’m one of 11 kids. We fight all the time. And a fight can last a day, a week, a month, a year, who knows? But we always come back, and Dina will be back.
It’s not just me. If it were just me, I would have to look and say, “Okay, Caroline. What’d you do? What’d you say?” And I don’t know and I still don’t know, but I’m going to leave it at that. Whatever beating I take in the press and through the court of public opinion, I’m willing to take that beating because I won’t hurt my parents. I don’t want to make this into something bigger than what it should be. It’s a very personal thing. It’s a very hurtful thing. But in time, we will mend and quite frankly, the only people that I have to worry about what they feel is my family. And I will always behave in a manner that will make them proud and I’ll show my kids that sometimes, you gotta take a little beating in life to do the right thing. I’m willing to take the beating.
Ugh, she’s the best. I’m so in love with her. She’s so inspiring. She’s been on that show for so many years and she handles herself so gracefully on it. She’s just, she’s cool to be around. She’s funny, easy and she had good insight into some of the more difficult moments I had. I love an alpha female and she is like the ultimate.
It was an event. If I had to go to the bathroom it was a 20-minute production shutdown. It’s true, no joke. The whole crew had to know about it, too. “10-1, everybody take five, take 10, take whatever. Jeri has to use the bathroom.” People had to get me dressed and undressed, so I had a full-time dresser. I couldn’t do it myself.
"It wasn’t scripted," Van Der Beek told HuffPost TV. "I remember being completely surprised by it because it was completely sincere. The fact that it’s being used to mock me now, I think it’s so funny," he said with a laugh.
