Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen chats with Access Hollywood’s Scott Evans about his two-week vacation in Tahiti with Bradley Cooper, Irina Shayk, Allison Williams and Anderson Cooper. He also discusses Eileen Davidson’s RHOBH exit.
Winning clearly never gets old for Venus Williams.
The 37-year-old American ended the hopes of Britain’s Johanna Konta in the women’s semifinals with a 6-4, 6-2 win on Centre Court on Thursday. Williams will be seeking a sixth Wimbledon singles title Saturday against Garbine Muguruza, who advanced to the final at the All England Club by beating Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1, 6-1.
If Venus wins Saturday, she would be the oldest women’s Grand Slam champion in the Open era (since 1968). She’s the oldest women’s finalist in any Grand Slam since Martina Navratilova reached the Wimbledon final in 1994.
“I’ve played in a lot of finals here,” Venus said in her televised interview after the match. “It’s been a blessing. I couldn’t have asked for more, but I’ll ask for a little more. One more win would be amazing.
“It won’t be a given, but I’m going to give it my all.”
Colton Haynes turns 29 today and how wonderful that he does so with nothing to hide. I’m always rooting for this actor who came to fame on Teen Wolf then Arrow and had to struggle with severe anxiety along the way because he was closeted. I very much appreciate how open he’s been about it all since coming out last year. Happy birthday Colton!
He’s been described as America’s sexiest vet and, well, that sounds about right to me. This guy is all kinds of sexy. He’s Evan Antin, an animal expert and exotic animal veterinarian at Conejo Valley Veterinary Hospital in Thousand Oaks, California. He’s got 1 million followers on Instagram – including me. “I love fitness and weightlifting,’ he tells People.com. ‘I was a personal trainer for a year before vet school. That’s when I knew I wanted to be a vet.’
Believe it or not, Cheryl Ladd turns 66 today. The Charlie’s Angels alum is still a busy working actress with roles in the feature film Unforgettable as Katherine Heigl’s scary mother and playing opposite John Travolta in American Crime Story: The People vs OJ Simpson.
I watched every single episode of Charlie’s Angels when I was a kid and when Farrah Fawcett left, I thought it would go off the air because she was such a phenomenon.
Cheryl was brought on and was so appealing, so funny, so pretty, that I liked the show just as much if not more.
And then there was her song Think It Over. I bought the 45 single at the JC Penney and played it over and over and over. The first video is of Cheryl performing the song which, I am kind of surprised to discover, I still know pretty much by heart!
I snapped some photos of Cheyenne Jackson last night at Outfest where he appeared with the cast of Hello Again. I did not realize it would be his birthday in just a few hours. The birthday comes at such a busy time for the father of young twins who juggles live performances with roles in movies and on television. Happy birthday to this very busy talent!
At Outfest last night, I saw the movie Tom of Finland and was surprised at how much I liked it. One of the reasons is because Lauri Tilkanen has a major role – a gay role. graduated from the Theatre Academy of Helsinki in 2012. He made his feature lead debut in The Good Son directed by Zaida Bergroth in 2009, while he was still in acting school. Since then he has already become one of the foremost actors in Finland for his several roles in theatre, television and film.
Some of Lauri’s latest work includes the TV-series Tellus, the hospital series Syke and the crime drama Koukussa.
The great Billie Jean King – true a hero and a visionary – was asked last month about her former rival Margaret Court’s anti-gay and anti-trans comments.
There have been calls from many – including former numbers ones Martina Navratilova and Lindsay Davenport – to have the name of Margaret Court Arena at the Australian Open changed because of Court’s bigoted comments.
King finds Court’s comments ‘hurtful’ but is not in favor of stripping her name from the arena.
“I still want her to have her name on the court at this point, but I’m disappointed,” said King, 73, a contemporary of Court, 74. “Because of her tennis, she deserves it . . . I’ve stood up for her before. So I separate those things.
“I think it’s really important to always have acts of kindness, love over hate, than to make judgments on others. Do I agree with her? Absolutely not. I’m gay and I think she’s been hurtful to our community and doesn’t really understand us as humans first.”
I know there are going to be so many fans deliriously happy about this.
Over the years I have heard from so many fans of The L Word who have never lost hope the show would somehow be revived.
Well, looks like it’s happening.
Showtime is developing a sequel to the drama which revolved around a group of lesbians in West Hollywood and their friends, family and lovers.
Deadline Hollywood reports that three of the original series’ lead cast members, Jennifer Beals, who played Bette, Kate Moennig (Shane) and Leisha Hailey (Alice), are expected to come on as executive producers on the sequel and, if the project moves forward, they would appear on the series, with their characters serving as a bridge between the original and the new show.
The original series premiered in 2004 and ran for six seasons.
It was created by Ilene Chaiken who will serve as an executive producer on the sequel but won’t have hands-on involvement as she serves as executive producer/showrunner on Fox’s Empire.
I saw the film Beach Rats at Outfest on Sunday starring this quite stunning young man. Those lips! Those eyes! He’s Harris Dickinson and not only does the camera love his beautiful face and body, he’s also a wonderful actor who was making his film debut. In the film, he plays a closeted young guy in Brooklyn struggling to come to terms with his attraction to other men. “Sexual identity, for sure, is one of the main issues for Frankie,” Dickinson toldVariety earlier this year when the film made a splash at the Sundance Film Festival. “More than sexual identity, is just identity as a whole and coming to terms with that and not fully allowing yourself to comprehend that. He doesn’t even want to deal with his sexuality.”
