Leave it to Ellen DeGeneres.
The host somehow managed to coerce child-stars-turned-fashion designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen out of hiding and onto her set for Friday's "Ellen" show.
Just how did she get them to make their first TV appearance in more than five years? No one knows. (Actually we kind of know: The twins, 27, were there to promote their new Nirvana fragrances, which recently...Read more »

I'm no doctor, but a quick schooling via five episodes of "Lindsay" leaves a pretty clear sense that she's a shopaholic.
Early in Sunday's episode, Lohan sells clothing at a consignment store. And then she starts looking around, oh-my-god-ing about an Alaia black trench, getting giddy over a Saint...Read more »
Legos, wormholes, new superheroes and old musicals are on the movie schedule for 2014, which so far looks like a fairly entertaining grabbag. Sequels run the gamut from "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" to "Dumb and Dumber To," while a genre that seemed long dead -- think robes and sandals -- is suddenly very much alive.
