Debi Mazar Talks 'Dancing With the Stars' and the Final Season of 'Entourage'

by Katy Kroll, posted May 20th 2011 1:00PM
It seems like Debi Mazar has been around forever, jump-starting her career in the mid-'80s as Madonna's sidekick in such music videos as 'Papa Don't Preach' and 'True Blue.' By the early '90s, she'd found her niche with roles in movies like 'Goodfellas' and 'Jungle Fever' playing the girl with the striking pin-up-style looks and thick Queens accent.

But Mazar is probably best known as Vincent Chase's sharp-tongued publicist Shauna on 'Entourage' -- and for her short-lived stint on Season 9 of 'Dancing With the Stars.' And her delightful cooking show, 'Extra Virgin,' was just picked up for a second season on the Cooking Channel.

Here, she dishes on the ups and downs of the three weeks she spent 'Dancing,' how her love of family and Tuscan food blossomed into a new career path and what we can expect from the series finale of 'Entourage.'

Is 'Dancing With the Stars' Stacked Against Certain Celebs?

by Katy Kroll, posted Apr 25th 2011 12:00PM
All's fair in love, war and 'Dancing With the Stars.' Well, maybe not 'DWTS.'

Since it premiered in 2005, 'DWTS' has offered us a mélange of the rhythmically challenged and the naturally talented, pitting, for example, a clumsy John Ratzenberger against a nimble Apolo Ohno.

While a wide array of contestants with varying skills certainly makes for good TV, we're beginning to wonder whether some celebrities are getting a raw deal when the judges score everyone based on the same criteria. This season, for example, 60-year-old, overweight Kirstie Alley is directly competing and being scored against chiseled 21-year-old pop star and basketball player Romeo. Is that really fair?

To investigate this situation, we went to the only people who know what's really going on -- those directly involved with the show. We asked past 'DWTS' underdogs Cloris Leachman, Debi Mazar and Steve-O the burning question: Is the competition stacked against certain celebrities?

Guess who's coming to Sesame Street?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 21st 2010 10:40PM
There are few signs in this crazy business that you have become an indelible and beloved member of the pop culture lexicon than getting a cameo appearance on an episode of Sesame Street. Case in point: Gallagher, O.J. Simpson and Kanye West have yet to appear on an episode of Sesame Street.

Well, would you want West teaching your kids the difference between "near" and "far," things that are yellow and why George Bush hates black people?

Some upcoming episodes of the long running PBS kids' show will include appearances by Christina Applegate on Jan. 25, Hugh Jackman on Jan. 27, Debi Mazar and Sarah Jessica Parker on Feb. 16 and Paul Rudd and Eva Longoria-Parker on Feb. 18.

Dancing with the Stars: Performance 3

by Michael Pascua, posted Oct 6th 2009 2:20AM
Cheryl Burke and Tom DeLay on Dancing with the Stars(S9E06) I welcomed the return of Len Goodman on Dancing with the Stars because he separated the scores of the dances, by giving good performances two points less than they actually deserved. This week was a full Latin night with the Samba and Rumba.

When Chuck walked down the stairs I couldn't help but laugh at his arm frill, but Cheryl and Tom DeLay walked down as the American flag. I was laughing so hard that I didn't even notice that Debi's outfit killed all of Aaron Carter's Muppets.

There has been some drama with Tom DeLay's feet. Find out after the jump what happened to him.

Entourage: Running on E

Kevin Dillon as Johnny Drama on HBO's 'Entourage.'
(S06E04) "Wow, you pay for that or is there someone out there that would actually bang you for free?" - Ari

This is shaping up to be a helluva season for Entourage. Only four episodes in, and it feels like a completely different show than we're used to. Rather than wallowing in endless "woe is me plots" (every character on the show has been guilty of them in the five previous seasons), things feel fresh and the characters are growing up. Plus, instead of making me constantly laugh, Entourage is making me do something I never expected -- think.

Entourage: Drive (season premiere)

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Jul 12th 2009 11:00PM

Jerry Ferrara and Jamie-Lynn Sigler
(S06E01) "Can we drive with the airbags deployed?" - Drama

The boys are back, and as I mentioned in my Early Look review last week, everything we knew about Entourage finally seems to be evolving. Some of it's logical and some of it's forced so that the story progresses, but all of it makes sense. Entourage was due for an overhaul if you think about it, and what could be more perfect than seeing what life is like for the guys when they aren't constantly worrying about Vince's career?

You think Turtle would have ever had time to smoke a J in a hot tub with Jamie-Lynn Sigler if Scorsese hadn't called Vince? I don't think so.

Entourage, season six -- An early look

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Jul 8th 2009 2:00PM

(L-R): Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Jeremy Piven, Adrian Grenier, and Jerry Ferrara star in HBO's 'Entourage.'
Like many shows before it, Entourage has officially reached a point where the title of the program doesn't exactly make total sense anymore. Think season two of Prison Break after they had, you know... broken out of prison. In this case, we've spent five seasons watching boys become men, and much like the tagline for Entourage's sixth season plainly spells out, "life changes, friends don't." What exactly happens when Vince no longer has an entourage?

The show gets a helluva lot more interesting is what happens.

Check out the new season six poster for Entourage

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Jun 10th 2009 7:09PM

Entourage -- Season 6 PosterI've talked at length in the past about how much I've loved all the creative taglines Entourage has featured over it's previous five seasons. They're short and witty, yet the brevity always gets across the point of the season too. The latest promotional campaign for Entourage's upcoming sixth season is no exception:

"Life changes. Friends don't."

When we last left Vinny and the boys, they were gearing up for Marty Scorsese's Great Gatsby re-imagining and it began with moving home to Queens. Speculation seems to be leaning towards Vince finally getting his due and being recognized for what's sure to be a stand-out performance in a Scorsese classic.

The only six episodes of Entourage you need to watch

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Dec 18th 2008 3:04PM
Kevin Dillon, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, and Jerry Ferrara star in HBO's 'Entourage.'
As one of the few hits that's currently keeping HBO afloat, Entourage is still only a modest success - it's recent fifth season premiere hit a three-year low. Despite the lackluster ratings, HBO still gave the greenlight to a sixth season much earlier than expected... because, well, they don't have much else going on right now.

That being said, I'm a huge fan of the show and have been since it began. Yes, I'm one of the few that actually tuned in for the mostly ignored eight episode freshman season. I honestly don't see HBO pulling the plug without a true series finale at this stage in the series, but weirder things have happened and I want season six to roar back. So if you watch the show, great - glad to know you weren't part of that "three-year low" I mentioned. But if you used to watch Entourage, or never have, then this will be good for ya - the only six episodes you need to watch to know just what the heck is going on in the world of Vincent Chase.

Entourage: Return to Queens Blvd. (season finale)

(L-R): Kevin Connolly, Michael Phelps
(S05E12) "She's treating me like she usually treats Johnny." - Vince

Things certainly weren't looking good for Vince. But in true Entourage style, something always works out. Despite the fact that this was one of the strongest episodes of the season, I really wish it had ended differently.
