'Boss' Season Finale: Tom Kane Seeks Retribution (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 12th 2011 3:30AM
'Boss' season finale - 'Choose'It was a short first season for 'Boss' (Fri., 10PM ET on Starz), but the gubernatorial campaign proved to be filled with tension and drama. And that was just the surface that the voters saw. Behind the scenes, things were even darker as Kane's desperation to hold onto his mayoral seat led him to take some very drastic and tragic actions.

The betrayal from within his office to see him thrown out of office finally reached the man who was perhaps his closest friend and advisor. For 30 years, Ezra Stone has advised Kane and stood by his side as he grew through the ranks to rule Chicago with an iron fist.

Tom Kane Gets an Unexpected New Drug Supplier on 'Boss' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 14th 2011 5:00AM
'Boss' - 'Slip'Tom found himself in need of finding a new source for the myriad of medications he needs to battle his degenerative disease on 'Boss' (Fri., 10PM ET on Starz). But he needs someone who can not only get him what he needs, but can be discreet about it. The latter perhaps being the more important of those two necessities.

So he turns to a woman who, only a few short episodes ago, wanted nothing to do with him. His daughter Emma now finds herself slowly trying to reconnect a very estranged relationship, while at the same time procuring him medications without a legal prescription. Somehow, we suspect she's going to find herself pulled right into the inevitable scandal.

Cross-Dressing Insinuations on 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' (VIDEO)

Camille GrammerThis week's installment of 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' (Mon., 9PM ET on Bravo) seems likely to reignite the acrimonious public spat between Camille Grammer and her ex-husband Kelsey.

At a séance the psychic tells Camille that not only are her grandparents' spirits in attendance, but also that they're celebrating her divorce and want her to as well: "When it's all finally done, you have a party, okay? They want you to celebrate."

Then Camille's grandmother allegedly tells the psychic that not only does Camille have a great new man hovering in the wings, but that he also "swings the right way." Whatever could she mean by that? We're not sure, but Kyle Richards thinks she does. Laughing, she says "at least you won't have to share your shoes with anybody. Or your underwear!"

Meredith Steps Up When Tom Gets Disoriented at Press Conference on 'Boss' (VIDEO)

'Boss' - 'Reflex'In politics, your public image is every bit as important as where you stand on the issues. So when symptoms of Tom's medical condition started invading a press conference on 'Boss' (Fri., 10PM ET on Starz), it took some quick thinking on Meredith's part to salvage the moment for him.

Even though he's yet to open up about his medical condition, she was able to sense that something was wrong in that moment, and rather than let him appear weak, she stepped up and smoothly transitioned the conversation. The moment snapped Tom back and he was able to go on.

Tom Kane Gets a Secret Diagnosis That Could Change Everything on 'Boss' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 24th 2011 1:00AM
'Boss' - 'Pilot'With the premiere of 'Boss' (Fri., 10PM ET on Starz) any remaining vestiges of Frasier Crane that we saw when Kelsey Grammer would appear on other shows fell to the side. Here was a commanding orator, a powerful and driven man, and a very serious man.

We first met him at perhaps one of the lowest points of his life. But even when getting the diagnosis that spelled out a very unpleasant fate at the hands of a disease there is no cure for, Tom Kane (Grammer) exuded poise and grace. At least, so long as there was anyone around.

Kelsey Grammer Takes Charge in 'Boss,' But the Rest of the Show Needs Work

by Maureen Ryan, posted Oct 19th 2011 3:30PM
It's easy to see why Kelsey Grammer took the lead role in 'Boss' (10PM ET Friday, Starz). For almost any actor, the role of Mayor Tom Kane would be the equivalent of an all-you-can-eat buffet.

The role of Kane lets Grammer present his dramatic bona fides and put his 'Frasier' (and, er, 'Hank') personas to rest, and he's so good as the driven politician that he alone is almost reason enough to tune in.

The problem is, the show that's been built around the actor (who's also a producer on the project) isn't nearly as interesting as what Grammer brings to the screen, and the sluggish pacing and melodramatic excesses of 'Boss' could put off those drawn in by the actor's confident star turn.

Wendy Williams: 'Housewives' Was a Lovely 'Parting Gift' for Kelsey to Give Camille (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 18th 2011 2:00PM
Kelsey Grammer recently told Piers Morgan that his relationship with his ex-wife Camille was based on appearances rather than love, and that the pseudo-celebrity status she's attained from 'Real Housewives' was his "parting gift" to her. Grammer is getting roundly criticized for the remark, but not by Wendy Williams, who said on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox) that it was actually quite a lovely gesture.

"I thought that was a nice parting gift, as parting gifts go," Wendy joked. She then said that she's "forgiven" Kelsey for their awkward TV breakup after watching the latest season of 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.' It's made her realize that there's two sides to every story."

Kelsey Grammer Accused of Foul-Mouthed Rant After Being Asked About Ex-Wife on Australian TV

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 13th 2011 6:30AM
Kelsey GrammerViewers of 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' have watched as Kelsey and Camille Grammer's marriage first unraveled and then ended, oh so acrimoniously.

The strain of having their lives as ongoing tabloid fodder clearly seems to be taking its toll on Kelsey.

Even as Camille divulged new details about their marriage earlier this week, he was reportedly seeking a gag order to prevent her from allowing their young children to talk to reporters.

Now it's been reported that he lost it backstage at an Australian TV show and launched into a foul-mouthed rant after being asked about his ex-wife and 'The Real Housewives' live on air.

The reality star seemed to take everything in stride, but now she's speaking out about what went wrong and how things ended with Kelsey.

In an interview with TV Guide Magazine, Camille said Kelsey showed no remorse about the end of their marriage.

"[Kelsey became] a different person than the one I was married to," Camille said. "I said, 'We've been together 14 years. How can you just throw us away?' And he said, 'Fourteen? Oh, that's just a number.' I said, 'What about our kids?' and he said 'They'll get over it.' He was very cruel. He even said, 'I feel no remorse.'"

Kelsey Grammer On Fame, Comedy, Chicago and His New Drama, 'Boss'

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jul 13th 2011 4:20PM
Shooting a television show on location isn't a situation that offers actors much privacy, unless they're in a forest outside Vancouver or in the desert near Albuquerque or some remote place like that.

How about downtown Chicago on a bustling summer day? Last Friday, as he shot a pivotal scene from the upcoming Starz drama 'Boss' on the sidewalk outside Chicago's City Hall, Kelsey Grammer had almost no privacy. But the actor didn't appear to need a buffer, let alone a wall of bodyguards. He affably talked to passersby during breaks from the afternoon shoot, and genially posed for photos with anyone who asked.

After he'd wrapped for the day, he sat down for an interview in which he talked about the similarities between his own life as a public figure and the intensely scrutinized lives of politicians like Mayor Tom Kane, his character on 'Boss.'

"My life's been covered for the last 25 years -- everything, every moment, every single pitfall," Grammer said.

As Barbara Walters prepares to show viewers her annual list of the 10 Most Fascinating People of the Year (pictured, featuring Lady Gaga and Walters) in a special airing tonight, we realized that TV gives far too much airtime to people at the other end of the spectrum. With that thought, here are the year's 10 least fascinating people on TV. Let's all try to make it a New Year's resolution that we won't be talking about these people's overexposure again a year from now.

Kelsey Grammer's big news is that he yanked Hank

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 7th 2009 10:01AM
hank_kelsey_grammerOn October 14, Kelsey Grammer was telling the media to tune in to his ABC sitcom Hank because the show was getting better and better. More funny, he said. Well, now that Kelsey has accepted the fact that Hank is dead and buried -- except for whatever episodes ABC burns off down the road -- Kelsey's may be singing a different tune.

Kelsey pulled the plug on Hank because it wasn't funny. That's according to an interview he did in which he claims that after the Thanksgiving episode, he returned to work and the show was just not getting any laughs. "Honestly, it just wasn't very funny ... We finished and I was like, 'Oh boy, there wasn't a laugh in the house on this one.' And I called the president of Warner Brothers ... and I said, 'Listen, when can we put a bullet in this thing?'"

Kelsey Grammer's going Broadway in La Cage Aux Folles

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 30th 2009 7:02PM
kelsey_grammer_headWell, what do you do when your last two TV series flamed out, leaving you scratching your head and wondering why the public isn't getting you like they did before? If you're Kelsey Grammer, you head to Broadway. With the ABC sitcom Hank firmly in his rear-view mirror, Grammer will star on Broadway in a revival of La Cage aux Folles.

Could Kelsey be taking advice from David Hyde Pierce, his brother Niles on Frasier? Since that series ended, David's had two hit shows on the Gay White Way, Spamalot and Curtains. The latter resulted in David winning a Tony award.

I'd like to think that Grammer's taking somebody's sage advice. La Cage is a no-brainer.
