She immediately recognized turkey chicks when they were brought out. While Jimmy Fallon talked briefly to the actual animal expert, Jeff Musial, Shields started cooing to the bird she was holding.
As the camera panned in, you could see its eyes starting to close. "Brooke is putting hers to sleep," Fallon marveled. She was definitely in her element and happy to be holding the bird. Maybe Shields should have been cast in 'Zookeeper' instead of Kevin James. It could have been like a homecoming for her.
"I was treated sort of like a mascot," she told Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC). "They were so sweet to me. And I was never invited up to the fourth floor, you know, where all the drugs were, evidently."
Studio 54 did warp her in one way, though: "It wasn't until I was 21 that I found out that bartenders actually had to wear shirts."

As oxymoronic as it seems, I love the idea of Brooke on The Middle. She'll be going deep into the heart of the heartland to play a character who's supposed to be like Fran Heck, Patricia Heaton's character on The Middle. There's nothing as liberating for an actor as the chance to let loose and break the mold.
Orson, Indiana will get its own exhausted mother of four boys -- played by none other than Brooke Shields. The queen of 'Lipstick Jungle' and supermodel for the ages will de-glam to wage mommy war against Patricia Heaton's Frankie Heck.
So what exactly was so "only talking to one person" about this interview? KVBC did an interview with him about the book, he's on Live with Regis & Kelly tomorrow morning, on The Late Show tomorrow night, and he's on Jimmy Kimmel Live on November 23. He also did an interview with People.
Generally speaking, I like Brooke. I watched Suddenly Susan. I even watched Lipstick Jungle. But I don't like this commercial, even if she's endorsing the best eyelash growing stuff in the world. The way it's put together is deceptive. It looks and sounds like she's selling eye makeup, which she's not.
But, Joan being Joan, she also randomly let loose on Brooke Shields, Sarah Palin, and whoever else was in her mind during the ten minutes we spoke.
We start off by talking about longevity. She feels one of the reasons she stays relevant is that she doesn't live in the past. "I don't give a shit about Johnny Carson," she said.
Unlike Jack Bauer, Kiefer Sutherland doesn't throw any punches. Literally.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sutherland was in attendance at an NYC club this past Monday night when fashion designer Jack McCollough "rudely bumped" into actress Brooke Shields while she was speaking with Sutherland. After McCollough refused to apologize - wait for it - Sutherland headbutted him!Normally, this wouldn't be that big a deal. Celebrity makes a boo-boo, money exchanges hands out of court, problem solved. However, fans of 24 may recall that during production of the FOX drama's seventh season, Sutherland was busted for drunk driving. He served 48 days in jail but it never interfered with production because the writer's strike halted it.
So it's not surprising that when news came out that Lipstick Jungle was going to take a pause in production, everyone -- including our own Isabelle -- assumed the show was canceled. However, a helpful staffer e-mailed us to set us straight (Isabelle updated her post with the info), saying that NBC was going to wait out the show's move to what is usually a Friday "death slot." Indeed, there seems to be a slight uptick in ratings in its new slot, and DVR viewing numbers continue to be solid, so NBC is playing a "wait and see" game with the show.
While I've already found my Mr. Right, I still identify with all three women in one way or another. Like movie exec Wendy (Brooke Shields), I'm doing my best to balance career and family. Like Victory (Lindsay Price), I have a whole bunch of dreams and goals on my list. And like Nico (Kim Raver), I'm an overachieving workaholic. And if not for the aforementioned Mr. Right, I'd have a really tough time saying no to Robert Buckley's bedroom eyes, too.
We really do live in a very different television landscape.
NBC has decided to put five of its shows online a week before they even premiere on TV, to build buzz. The network has decided to use Hulu to show the first episodes of new show Knight Rider and returning shows 30 Rock, Lipstick Jungle, Life, and Chuck.
Of course, putting episodes online is nothing new. All of the networks do it (sometimes they even "leak" the shows themselves to create buzz), but this seems to be a true attempt by NBC (which needs the help) to change the way they schedule, promote, and debut shows, a change in the way they program.
For the first time this season, the designers were broken into teams for the challenge. Last season, it seemed like the majority of the season consisted of team challenges, so I was surprised that it took five episodes before they got around to it for this group. I guess I was surprised by a lot of things in this episode.
Today was the very last day of the press tour here in Beverly Hills. It was "TCA Day," with members of the association (including me) going to the Warner Brothers lot to visit the sets of ER, Pushing Daisies, and Chuck, where we spoke to cast members and producers (Oh, we went to the set of America's Best Dance Crew, but let's just forget I mentioned that one). Then we bused it over to the Fox lot, where Joss Whedon showed us around the set of Dollhouse, and the entire cast of King of the Hill gave a table read of their 250th episode. All this fun will be in upcoming posts later this summer.
Despite some of the griping you may have seen from me, it's been lots of fun. It's just a very tiring experience. Case in point: On Monday, NBC decided to close out the press conference portion of the tour by having us sit through ten panels, five of them after lunch. Here's a wrap-up post that goes over some of what went on yesterday that I haven't already covered.
