In the behind-the-scenes clip below, Barton reflects on a humorous time when it was difficult for him to maintain a straight face during filming, and he also talks about the high level of energy that goes into a performance when actors are playing characters who are fighting for (or fear for) their lives.

Entertainment News: Teen Idol David Cassidy Dies at 67

Fort Lauderdale, Fla – He was the heart throb-iest of the teen heart throbs when he came onto the scene in the early 1970s. David Cassidy was the driving force of the manufactured-for-tv pop act The Partridge Family, which provided a soundtrack for their era. Cassidy died in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at the age of 67, on November 21st, 2017.

David Cassidy fought the demons of his sudden fame for virtually the rest of his life after the Partridge Family era, admitting an alcohol problem after being arrested for a DUI in 2013. Earlier this year, he announced that he was living with non-Alzheimer’s dementia, which ran in his family. But during the burst of infamy he had in the early 1970s, there was no greater beloved pin-up teen than Cassidy, who ushered in a parade of dreamy 1970s boys like Donny Osmond, Vincent Van Patten, Leif Garrett and his half brother, Shaun Cassidy.

Lisa Vanderpump Breaks Down During Teary Chat with Frenemy Lisa Rinna on Rhobh Reunion

Lisa Vanderpump Breaks Down During Teary Chat with Frenemy Lisa Rinna on Rhobh Reunion
Lisa Rinna and Lisa Vanderpump have had a rocky relationship during their time on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But during Tuesday’s first part of the show’s three-part reunion, the two frenemies came together in a tearful moment.

The unexpected moment of harmony came as the two ladies discussed whether they could truly repair their friendship — which suffered greatly during the fallout of last season’s Munchausen madness.

For Vanderpump, Rinna’s loose lips made her hard to trust.

“There’s a lot about Lisa I like,” Vanderpump said. “I enjoy playing with her because she is

Lisa Rinna Apologizes to Lisa Vanderpump After Bitter Feud! Can the Rhobh Rivals Move On?
Lisa Vanderpump is known for being many things on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She’s a loving mother to two children; a loyal friend; a hardworking restauranteur; and a passionate champion for animal rights.

But one thing the 56-year-old Housewife is not known for being is incredibly forgiving — especially after friends betray her trust and kindness.

So imagine the shock Rhobh fans felt on Tuesday’s all-new episode when Vanderpump did the seemingly unthinkable and forgave Lisa Rinna, whom she had clashed with throughout most of last season.

The unexpected moment came at an unexpected place: on the

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Yolanda Foster's Daughter Is Arrested for a DUI
A trip aboard a luxury yacht with Kyle Richards turned into a nightmarish vacation for Yolanda Foster on Tuesday's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when she learned her daughter had been arrested for a DUI. "This yacht is gorgeous," said an excited Richards, who went to Mallorca, Spain, with her husband and two of her daughters. "I can't believe we're going to float around on this for one week in the Mediterranean." When Foster joined Richards, the two toured Spain, went tubing - the Dutch model referred to hers as a "bagel" - and jumped off the side of the yacht,

Chandler Massey Wins Third Daytime Emmy Award, Endures Epic F*ck-Up

You know, you dream about a moment like this watching a live awards show, and when it happens, you don’t know what to say.

One of those moments happened tonight during The 41st Daytime Emmy Awards.

But let’s go back a bit, to the Red Carpet pre-show, which was such a clusterf*ck of bad cues, missed lines, and giggling presenters, I was convinced everyone involved must have thought it a dress rehearsal. In the closing moments, someone shouted out “Sorry if my nipples fell out.” I was hoping it was Chandler Massey, but he was a no-show before the program (and if the red carpet seemed rushed, it was probably because they had to get it back to Crazy Ray’s Rug Rentals before 10 Pm)

That’s how … low budget … this show was. Another clue? When the show started and Kathy Griffin began her monologue, the livestream

Fred Prays for the Day Hell Night Gets Re-Issued

Fred Prays for the Day Hell Night Gets Re-Issued
What are you all doing out front of my house on a cold night like tonight? You want to hear about another movie from back in the day? Don’t you have school or something? Ok, I guess I can spare a few minutes to share another forgotten gem with you, but then it’s straight to bed…for me, anyway.

I think it’s safe to say that Linda Blair and I have pretty much grown up together, albeit on different sides of the camera. While I was toiling in the multi-media club in high school making movies for the classes she was in Hollywood making movies for the masses, but we were on the same ship. From the Exorcist movies, Born Innocent, Sarah T.–Portrait of an Alcoholic, Roller Boogie, Ruckus, Savage Streets, Night Patrol, all the way up to All is Normal…I’ve pretty much seen it all.

Interview: Betsy Russell Completes the Jigsaw Puzzle in ‘Saw 3D’

Chicago – Betsy Russell possibly made one of the greatest feature film debut moments in movie history. In the early VHS and cable days, no one can ever forget her epic horse ride in “Private School.” It’s great to have Betsy back, adding her legacy to the incredibly successful “Saw” horror franchise, this time in “Saw 3D.”

Russell was a quintessential California girl from San Diego and was born into a family of intellectuals and educators. Her father, Richard Russell, is one of the most sought after economic/Dow Jones theorists, and her grandfather was the author and liberal lion Max Lerner. Russell added to that famous lineage by shooting her first commercial at 16 years old, and moving on to Hollywood to pursue acting full-time shortly thereafter.

Edge of Darkness

Mel Gibson's return to acting is decent but not anything special. It's not as complex as the UK mini-series it's based on and there isn't a lot of action, so it ends up being just a lighter version of Taken.

Extras include:

Sure it looks cheesy but it's does have angels with machine guns, wall-crawling grannies, and Doug Jones. That's makes it a rental at least.

Rock ‘N’ Roll High School: 30th Anniversary Special Edition DVD Review

Release Date: May 4 Director: Allan Arkush Writers: Richard Whitley, Russ Dvonch, Joseph McBride Cinematographer: Dean Cundey Starring: P.J. Soles, Vincent Van Patten, Clint Howard Studio/Run Time: Shout! Factory, 84 min. Producer Roger Corman’s Rock ’N’ Roll High School is a teenage lobotomy. It’s an overcaffeinated parable about punk rebellion and the seething drive to maintain one’s countercultural ethos against a long-ingrained totalitarianism that, in 2010, appears approximately as dangerous as a pre-sectionals pep rally. You get where Corman, the B-movie emperor, is going with the whole punk-inflames-the-youth thing somewhere around the 12-second mark, but why bother suppressing such...

Howard Stern Reviving the Rock 'n' Roll High School

Howard Stern and producing partner Larry Levinson are planning a remake of the 1979 classic Rock 'n' Roll High School. The script is actually being written by Bill from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, aka in real life as Alex Winter, who has gone on to write and direct in addition to acting. Stern and Levinson are also remaking Porky's, with both films being personal favorites of Stern's. No director has been attached yet, but Winter explains "I've now done so much stuff in music videos, and the Napster movie, that the chance to bridge music and comedy was something that intrigued me. This movie seemed so ripe for a remake." Really? Ripe for a remake? Maybe after Paramount announced School of Rock 2! The original 1979 comedy was directed by Allan Arkush and starred P.J. Soles, Vincent Van Patten, Clint Howard, and Dey Young. The film is about a group ...
