The Hills


MONDAY (12/10)
  • (ABC, 8pm):  “Linus and Lucy’s little brother, Rerun, hangs with Snoopy and his own sibling, the desert-dwelling Spike.”  Was I the only one not aware of the What’s Happening!/Peanuts crossover episode?
  • (CBS, 8pm):  “Ted asks his doctor on a date and his friends try to discourage him from dating someone he sees regularly.”  Relationships clearly work best when you never see them at all.
  • (ABC, 9:30pm):  “Lauren tries to convince her sister to move to LA so she can be nearby when the baby is born.”  Lauren’s sister isn’t stupid.  She knows what ‘be nearby’ means.
  • (MTV, 10pm): Season finale.  “Lauren gets an offer to go to Paris.”  I really hope doesn’t take their version of quality programming overseas (again).  The French hate us already.

Mary-Louise Parker It’s a girl for Mary-Louise Parker, star of Showtime’s Weeds. The actress, who has a three-year-old son, Will, with her ex Billy Crudup, just adopted a baby from Africa. If you watched the Emmys or read any of the recap info, you know that Parker didn’t win either of the two Emmys she was nominated for this year—for her portrayal as Nancy Botwin on Weeds and for a TV movie role in The Robber Bride. Parker last took home the Emmy award in 2004 for her work on HBO’s Angels in America miniseries. She and Crudup split while Parker was still pregnant with her son, but she told People magazine after his birth, “There are a lot of things I just would not attempt, but taking care of someone—I know how to do. I know how to do that, and I enjoy doing that.” Parker can currently be seen in season three of Weeds as well as opposite Brad Pitt in The Assassination of Jesse James, opening this Friday.

Emmy AwardsThe 59th Annual Emmy Awards has not even started, yet I’m already sensing sensing a weird vibe about tonight’s telecast.  Will the show be a celebration of those young and new (e.g. Heroes)?  Will it be a tribute to those bowing out (James Gandolfini and crew)?  Or will performer Kanye West somehow manage to cast a controversial shadow over the rest of the ceremony?

What a difference a year makes.  Twelve months ago, we were still handing out trophies to stars from Will & Grace and The West Wing (those shows feel so five-years ago now).  Today, we welcome a new crop of nominees including Ugly Betty and 30 Rock for Best ComedyLast year, we were entertained by an always-hilarious Conan O’Brien.  This year, we are threatened by a song and dance number from this year’s host, Ryan Seacrest.  Last August, 24 snagged the award for Best Drama.  This September, it’s not even nominated (yet somehow Boston Legal is).

I think it would be safe to assume the voters would predictably (and respectfully) shower The Sopranos with honors, but I’ll still be crossing my fingers for an upset sometime tonight.  We’ll need something to talk about tomorrow…

Here’s the play-by-play of tonight’s events coming to you from the neglected West Coast!

Mary-Kate Olsen  If you’ve ever seen a tabloid photo of and wondered “what’s the deal…is she pissed or something?” – the answer is yes. The 21-year-old twin sat down recently with Entertainment Weekly to talk about the paparazzi, a problem to which all her Hollywood contemporaries (and not a single fan of hers) can relate. Mary-Kate told the magazine she doesn’t want her picture taken, and that it’s only “okay” at the red carpet or during a photo shoot. Olsen covers her face and doesn’t like to smile when her photo gets shot – which accounts for at least some of the tragic pictures of her that have appeared over the years. Mary-Kate’s 10-episode stint on Weeds will begin this month.

Jonathan Rhys MeyersRehab seems to be the way of many young stars these days. At least they’re getting help, but it seems almost “the thing to do.” The latest to hit the rehab circuit is The Tudors star Jonathan Rhys Meyers. His rep, Meredith O’Sullivan, said of Meyers decision to enter rehab, “After a non-stop succession of filming, Jonathan Rhys Meyers has entered an alcohol-treatment program. He felt a break was needed to maintain his recovery.” Indeed, he’s been busy—playing Henry VIII on Showtime’s The Tudors, as well as the miniseries Elvis. You may have also caught his pouty lips in Bend it Like Beckham, Match Point, and Mission: Impossible III. Meyers will be back filming The Tudors once he has finished his rehab program.
