Brooke Shields Is the Turkey Chick Whisperer on 'Late Night' (VIDEO)

Brooke Shields, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Brooke Shields spent some time working at the bird sanctuary in the San Diego Zoo when she was graduating from high school. That experience qualified her to completely take over an animal segment on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC).

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.

Brooke Shields Talks Plane Crash on 'Tonight Show'There was no emergency landing on the Hudson River for Brooke Shields. Last October it was all over the news that Shields and Jim Belushi were in a plane crash. Her friends and family got more of a scare than she did, Shields explained to Jay Leno on the 'Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

Brook Shields Is Related to KIngs on 'Who Do You Think You Are?'''Who Do You Think You Are?' (Fri., 8 PM on NBC) is devoted to tracing the family tree of celebrities. The series has given us several surprises so far (including the fact that Matthew Broderick's ancestor was a World War I hero). But on the latest episode, Brooke Shields gets what may be the biggest shock of all: She's related to a king of France!

Brooke Shields is getting in The Middle

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 18th 2009 9:00PM
brooke_shield_standingWhen you think of Brooke Shields, you think glamor and fashion and high style... Well, I do anyway. She's Suddenly Susan and one of the hot ladies on Lipstick Jungle. I do not think of her as a suburban mother of four in Orson, Indiana. However, that's exactly what she's going to be on an upcoming episode of ABC's sitcom The Middle.

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.

Brooke Shields in 'The Middle'

by Jane Murphy, posted Nov 18th 2009 6:05PM
When the 'Desperate Housewives' casting call went out for a put-upon-mother-of- four-unhinged-boys, the spirited TV and theater actress Felicity Huffman won the role. But the folks over at 'The Middle' do things a little differently.

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.

Did you know that Brooke Shields' eyelashes are funny?

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 9th 2009 10:02AM
brooke_shields_eyesHave you seen the Brooke Shields' commercial for Latisse? Were you as confused by it as I was? It sounded like a cosmetics commercial, which I think was the idea. They soft-sold the whole pharmaceutical angle because of the side effects. After all, getting longer eyelashes is worth risking red and itchy eyes, or "eyelid skin darkening," isn't it?

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.

Joan Rivers on longevity, Brooke Shields, and not caring about Johnny Carson

by Joel Keller, posted Sep 10th 2009 3:02PM
Joan RiversJoan Rivers was in Pasadena in July to promote her show on TV Land, How'd You Get So Rich?, but when I spoke to her after her presentation, I was more interested in a couple of issues. First, her longevity in a business that takes even older comedians and tosses them to the side (Cosby, for instance, is more community activist than comedian these days). Second, I wanted to ask her about her experience on The Apprentice, which included her feuds with wedding planners, Clint Black, and Annie Duke.

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.

Lipstick Jungle isn't dead yet... and might survive on Fridays

by Joel Keller, posted Nov 18th 2008 11:03AM
Lipstick JungleYou know, it's almost refreshing these days when a network comes out and actually uses the word "canceled." It just happens so rarely these days. Over the last few years, shows have "shut down production," "gone on hiatus," and "filled their production order," but rarely if ever have they been canceled outright. That word is usually reserved for the truly horrible shows (Do Not Disturb) or ones that become spectacular failures (My Own Worst Enemy).

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.

Watch the Lipstick Jungle premiere online -- a week before it's on TV - VIDEOS

Lipstick Jungle season twoI got hooked on NBC's Lipstick Jungle during its first season, and can't wait to see what happens with the girls in season two, premiering Wed., Sept. 24 at 10/9c. Look for my reviews of the show on TV Squad, as well.

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.

NBC wrap-up: Slater's split personality, and Selma Blair's a wise-ass - TCA Report

Kath & Kim panel
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.

Lipstick Jungle: Chapter Seven: Carpe Threesome (season finale)

Lipstick Jungle
(S01E07) "When fortune knocks, offer a chair." - Lorraine, the writer

NBC advertised this week's episode of Lipstick Jungle as the "season finale." Yet, about a month ago, they ordered six more episodes of the series saying that season one would get 13 episodes. NBC probably doesn't want LJ to face shows like Lost; so the network probably decided to air those six episodes next season in a less threatening timeslot. Let's face it, the series, even if it definitely got better over time, is not the best out there. It benefited a lot from the strike since it aired without much of competition.

Even if the season finale could have been more rocking, it was a satisfying episode that left viewers with a few questions such as: Was Charles really cheating?, Did Nico take the right decision?, Did Joe have a one-night stand or was this woman a "regular"?, Will Victory forgive Joe since, technically, he didn't cheat?, etc.

Lipstick Jungle
(S01E06) "It must feel like a really horrible surprise party" - Kirby to Wendy

I felt sorry for Wendy as I watched about 4/5 of the episode unfold. (I had to tape the episode and the VCR decided to not be my friend and stopped around 45 minutes in! Thanks NBC for complete recaps of the episodes.) Not only did Wendy go to a meeting she didn't want to go but she had the unpleasant surprise to learn that not only one of her best friend has been lying to her for weeks but that Nico also flew her boy toy half across the world for a booty call!

Lipstick Jungle(S01E04) "People like us are easy targets." - Hector to Nico

If we look at what Lipstick Jungle offers us, indeed, people in the movie, fashion, or magazine business are easy targets. Wendy's ex-nanny wrote a book, Victory's career was destroyed by one bad collection, and Nico had to face a fake lawsuit that had some truth to it (even Nico admits that what she did could be seen as sexual harassment).

This week's episode closed the books on the lawsuit Kirby filed against Nico but it didn't end their relationship. Why did he really do it? Even if Mike was the snake behind the ordeal, Kirby agreed to go forward yet all he wanted was Nico...

Lipstick Jungle(S01E03) "I could do a lot worse." - Madeleine about Wendy being her mother.

Indeed, Madeleine could do a lot worse. Wendy may not be a model mother but she is human and tries to make ends meet as best as she can. This week we saw more of how a scandalous book can affect someone and the control damage needed to smooth things over. Good thing that Wendy has a very good friend who is not afraid to play dirty!
