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

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 22nd 2011 6:48AM
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 Was 'Mascot' But a Good Girl at Studio 54 (VIDEO)

Brooke Shields Met Debbie Harry at Studio 54Though Brooke Shields frequented the infamous Studio 54 at the tender age of 12, it was all innocent fun. Seriously. There she met her idol, Debbie Harry, and danced her nights away -- but was home by 10PM.

"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."

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).

Brooke Shields Discovers That She's Related to Kings (VIDEO)

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.

Why did 60 Minutes say that Andre Agassi was "only" talking to them?

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 10th 2009 8:03AM
Open, andre agassiWhen CBS promoted the 60 Minutes interview with Andre Agassi that aired this past Sunday, they said that he was only talking to one person, Katie Couric, as if this was the only place you'd be able to hear Agassi talk about his new book (Open) and the revelations that have surfaced (especially his crystal meth use in the late 90s).

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.

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.

Kiefer Sutherland knows how to use his head

by Jonathan Toomey, posted May 7th 2009 12:22PM

Kiefer SutherlandUnlike 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.

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

by Jane Boursaw, posted Sep 17th 2008 2:02PM
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.

Five NBC shows to premiere on your computer before your TV set

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 2nd 2008 3:05PM
Life
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.

Project Runway: Welcome to the Jungle

by Annie Wu, posted Aug 14th 2008 8:23AM
Brooke Shields(S05E05) In this episode, Brooke Shields stopped by to have the designers make something for her character to wear in the new season of Lipstick Jungle. Two things surprised me. A) Lipstick Jungle hasn't been canceled yet and B) Brooke Shields still looks fantastic. Maybe it's because I wasn't watching in HD, but still.

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.

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.
