'Fashion's Night Out' Draws Justin Timberlake, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Halle Berry and Many More Celebs (VIDEO)
The fashion industry's open house took place across the world -- from Milan, Moscow and London to New York City, Seattle and Los Angeles. Halle Berry was one of many attendees. "I care about our economy, and a night like this sort of infuses some energy into our fashion industry," Berry said.
Other A-listers on the scene (and in this clip) included Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez (launching yet another fragrance), Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Gwen Stefani, Justin Timberlake, Naomi Campbell and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Yes, folks, it's true: the house featured on the beloved family sitcom 'Full House' is being offered up for sale to the highest bidder. According to NBC Los Angeles, the stately Victorian home, which was featured in the opening credits for most of the show's eight seasons, is on the block with an asking price of $4.1 million.
The original show featured a widowed father (Bob Saget) who turns to a wacky friend (Dave Coulier) and his brother-in-law (John Stamos) to help raise his three daughters after his late wife was killed by a drunk driver. Yes, that was the set-up for one of the lightest of lightweight comedies.
According to Moviefone, Stamos says he's putting together a project that would not include the original Full House cast. That would save us all from watching a 90 minute exploration of how two sickly sweet, perky Olson twins became desperately thin, tragic drug addicts. Cue the laugh track.
Running eight seasons, 'Full House' became iconic pop candy for Generation X. Just a taste of what it gave us: eye-rolling references for later dorm-room talks, John Stamos' "bad guys just need a hug" lesson -- and the Olsen twins, adorable-little-Michelle-turned-billion-dollar-empire-controlling entertainment tycoons. Name another sitcom with a track record like that ... Exactly.
Maybe it's them several years from now.
The 22-year-old actress will appear in one episode of the good-versus-evil series starring Christina Applegate this fall. Right now, there are no plans to have the actress return for more episodes.

(S03E15) Surprise, surprise! For once, a season of Weeds ended with Nancy taking control of her life instead of being at the mercy of outside circumstances. The first two season finales provided over-the-top cliffhangers, but Season Three ended with what appeared to be a fresh start for Nancy and the Botwin family.
Doug's songs were the perfect way to frame some of the ridiculous behavior that was on display at the evacuation center. His exchange with the leader of the prayer circle (the one speaking in tongues) was priceless. How about that "Just Like the Superdome" song? I can't believe that the writers went there, but I could not stop laughing after I heard the lyrics.
(S03E10) I'm starting to feel like Valerie Scottson is the new U-Turn. While I enjoy her character, she's taking a lot of time away from the Agrestic regulars (or is it Majestic now?). With the season more than half over, I can honestly say that I would have liked fewer "U-Turn threatens Nancy" moments and more of the brutal humor that Weeds is known for. Ditto for the "angry Valerie" scenes. Something tells me that she'll be around for the remainder of Season Three, and that spells trouble for my favorite band of drug dealers and suburban malcontents.
(S03E08) Only on Weeds will an episode begin with a funeral and end with a mammogram. I love how this show is able to balance tender, emotional elements with humorous and vulgar ones. The show's writers spread the wealth around this week, devoting time to underused characters like Heylia and Shane. Weeds has an incredible ensemble cast, and this episode served as another example of that fact.
At long last, Peter's death was neatly wrapped up. It turned out that Peter's dirty dealings went beyond blackmailing Nancy and Conrad. I really liked that, for once, all signs didn't point to Nancy. The DEA higher-ups knew that Peter was corrupt, and were more than willing to let his murder go unsolved. I liked the use of newspaper headlines as added details in this episode. After the funeral scene, there was a quick cut to Heylia reading the following headline: "So long honey." Later, there was a newspaper article that linked Peter to U-Turn. How convenient! Personally, I'm ready to say goodbye to Peter, and I'm glad the writers didn't keep his corpse hidden until the end of the season. It's time for Nancy to get down to business.
It was nice to have the old Andy Botwin back, and to have the military subplot safely behind us. After seeing Andy cook breakfast in his tightie whities, it's clear that the Army didn't whip him into peak physical condition, but no matter. There were some classic Andy moments this week. It's cute that Andy's so territorial when it comes to his recipe box. I'm the same way. We also got a brief glimpse of Andy getting turned on by the mating habits of lions. Welcome back, Botwin. You were sorely missed.
Wow. I know the Times has gone after celebrities to provide bylines in the past, but the names you see are along the lines of Steve Martin, Woody Allen, and Larry David. You know, people who know how to write. I don't think any had the rudimentary ninth-grade writing skills that Mary-Kate demonstrated in her little blurb. More after the jump.
