Jaclyn Smith Talks About Her Battle With Breast Cancer (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Oct 11th 2011 7:45PM
Jaclyn Smith faced down many foes on 'Charlie's Angels,' but none was more daunting than breast cancer. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Smith stopped by 'The Talk' (weekdays syndicated on CBS) to discuss not just her own battle with the disease, but also her late friend and co-star Farrah Fawcett's.

Smith remembered being there for Fawcett as she struggled and ultimately succumbed to cancer in 2009. "She never gave up. She just had this relentless drive to conquer the disease," she said.

Lynda Carter Recalls Her 'Wonder Woman' Audition Competition (VIDEO)

Lynda Carter on 'The Wendy Williams Show'When Lynda Carter auditioned for 'Wonder Woman' in 1975, she was vying against a bevy of talented actors to get what she saw as the only good role for a woman on television at the time. Carter said today on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated) that you had to be a mother, a hooker or a secretary to get on television at that time.

Carter would see many familiar faces at auditions, including Farrah Fawcett, Cheryl Ladd, Jaclyn Smith and Lindsay Wagner, including her 'Wonder Woman' audition. "We all ended up, for every part that came along, it was the same group of women," said Carter. "I walk in the room and I see them all sitting there, we go 'Hi.'"

'Dallas,' 'Charlie's Angels' Remakes Update: Who'll Play Bobby's Son?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Feb 9th 2011 8:20AM
Jesse MetcalfeRight now, you could be forgiven for thinking you'd woken up and found yourself in the late 1970s, but it's okay, don't panic. It's just reboot-tastic time in the world of TV, and we've got some groovy updates on the new versions of 'Dallas' and 'Charlie's Angels.'

Last week we reported that original 'Dallas' stars Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray had signed on for the update, and now we hear that producers are close to casting the pivotal role of Bobby and Pam Ewing's son, Christopher.

According to TVLine.com it's a two-horse race between Jesse Metcalfe and newcomer Alex Russell.

Producers say that the new 'Dallas' will focus on the next generation of the Ewing dynasty as they squabble over power, money and women. Josh Henderson has already signed on to play Christopher's cousin John Ross, with whom he and Jordana Brewster's character, Elena, become entangled in a love triangle.

Ann-Margret joins Jaclyn Smith on 'Law & Order: SVU'

Ann-MargretWell, this episode of 'Law & Order: SVU' is turning into a greatest hits of sexy women from years gone by. Actually, that's not quite accurate. Both of these women are still quite attractive. We already told you that former 'Charlie's Angels' star Jaclyn Smith will be appearing in an episode of the NBC drama on March 31. Now another famous star has been added to the episode.

Ann-Margret will appear in the same episode. TV Guide says that she'll play a woman who starred in commercials in the 1970s who gets involved in the case that Stabler and Benson are working on. Smith will play a detective involved in the same case. And if that's not enough beautiful TV women for you, what if we add Susan Anton and Morgan Fairchild to the mix? This episode is shaping up to be more 'Diagnosis: Murder' or 'Murder She Wrote' than 'Law & Order: SVU,' but it sounds like fun.

Well, I don't know if any episode of any 'Law & Order' show can be described as "fun," but this sounds like it could come close.

Jaclyn Smith to Guest on 'Law & Order: SVU'

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 21st 2010 10:03AM
jaclyn_smith_headshot_tiltedWhen it comes to guest stars, few shows do it as well as NBC's 'Law & Order: SVU.' The past few years the Emmy-winners in the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series category have come from actors who've visited the show, including Leslie Caron, Ellen Burstyn, Cynthia Nixon and Amanda Plummer. That said, one of 'Charlie's Angels' may need to make some room on her bookshelf for a trophy.

Perhaps that's jumping the gun, but it's still promising to hear that Jaclyn Smith will do a guest turn on 'Law & Order: SVU.' The actress, who'll never be more famous than she was as Kelly Garrett, one of the original 'Charlie's Angels,' gets to appear on the NBC show as a former police officer.

That's pretty ironic, too, because the whole twist about the 'Angels' is that they were frustrated as policewomen and Charlie plucked them out of going-nowhere careers fling papers and writing tickets to make them professional, private detectives in the thick of the action.

Top Design and Shear Genius coming back for more

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 7th 2007 12:29PM

Bravo has been praising the successes of its freshmen reality competitions Top Design and Shear Genius for awhile now. So it comes as no surprise that the pair have been renewed for second seasons. This Yahoo! article also confirmed Jaclyn Smith will return to host the second run of Shear Genius, in which hairstylists compete for $100,000. Not clear yet is if Todd Oldham or any of the judges would be returning on Top Design, in which interior designers, architects and artists vie for $100,000. Of course, it doesn't mean they won't re-up, just that no one is saying yet.

Bravo lets you complain directly to the VP of Programming

Andy Cohen BravoHow often does this kind of opportunity come along? Beginning Wednesday, January 17th, Bravo viewers will be able to bitch and moan directly to the network's Senior Vice President of Production and Programming Andy Cohen via "Watch What Happens," a live-streaming online program. Each week Andy and a handful of Bravo's reality stars will dish with fans on "what the hell happened." "Jeffrey, neck tattoo? Talk to me." "Mike, did you really think the whole John Belushi persona would take you far in the world of haute cuisine?"

Jaclyn Smith will host Shear Genius

by Brett Love, posted Jan 14th 2007 4:01PM
Jaclyn SmithMy second favorite angel has been named as the host of Bravo's upcoming reality show Shear Genius. Kevin mentioned the show in an earlier TCA post, but upon hearing the idea I wasn't that interested. I'm a guy that wears a Crimson Tide ballcap for about 18 hours a day, so hair, and the styling thereof, isn't really in my wheelhouse.

The addition of Jaclyn Smith as host though, that's enough to get me to tune in at least once and give the show a try. She'll be joined on the show by celebrity hairstylist Sally Hershberger as the head judge. According to NBC, the contestants will "go head-to-head in creative challenges that require more than just talent with a comb and scissors." If you have seen Top Chef or Project Runway, I think you have an idea about how this one is going to go. Although, it's one thing to watch Vincent make a model look ridiculous for 2 minutes in his "crap glued on poster board" getup, it is a whole other deal to watch someone get their head mutilated by a contestant's artistic vision. The potential for cringe inducing comedy is high.
