Bethenny and Jason Are 'Making Our Dreams Come True' on 'Ever After' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 12th 2011 12:26AM
Jason & Bethenny, 'Bethenny Ever After'It was like a remake of 'Laverne & Shirley' on 'Bethenny Ever After' (Mon., 10PM ET on Bravo) this week. Only instead of working at Shotz Brewery, Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy were touring Frankel's SkinnyGirl wine factory.

Nevertheless, they proved to be on the same page, or at least of a certain generation, when Frankel shouted out "Shlemiel!" Hoppy immediately responded with "Schlimazel!"

It's only a shame Bravo didn't dole out the cash to get the actual theme music from 'Laverne & Shirley,' as it would have added so much more to the classic imagery Frankel and Hoppy were creating throughout the factory. We were waiting for a glove to go by on top of a bottle.

Jamie Foxx Returning to Fox

by Scott Harris, posted Mar 29th 2010 10:30AM
When we first heard the news that Jamie Foxx was developing a new television show, we thought the same thing you did: Boy, he's really getting into this 'Laverne and Shirley' remake. (Which his reps have since denied.) But as it turns out, while his latest project does feature the return of a classic series, it's one that is perhaps a bit more understandable for Foxx: 'In Living Color.'

Well, sort of. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Foxx is teaming with former 'In Living Color' writers Fax Bahr and Adam Small to develop a new "urban-flavored sketch-comedy show" for Fox.

Foxx, of course, rose to super-stardom thanks to his role on 'In Living Color,' which ran from 1990-1994, while Bahr and Small went on to create Fox's seminal sketch series 'MADtv.'

by David Hofstede, posted Feb 24th 2010 4:30PM
Charlie's angelsFor classic TV fans, there's nothing like owning every episode of a beloved series on DVD. However, sometimes the wait to complete the run of a favorite show is longer than anticipated. And sometimes, sadly, it doesn't happen at all.

New season releases on these 10 shows have been missing for a long time, but if you're a fan don't give up hope. Both 'Leave it to Beaver' and 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show' are now back on track after years of non-activity, so anything is possible.

Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel developed a friendship while working together on 'Valentine's Day' and now consider themselves BFFs. The actresses talked about their close relationship while appearing together on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC), and agreed with a comment by co-star Jamie Foxx that "they're the new Laverne and Shirley."

But, who considers themselves Laverne, and which one is Shirley? Watch the clip to find out.

A 'Laverne and Shirley' Remake for the Big Screen?

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 10th 2010 10:37AM
laverne_and_shirley_bowlingSchlemiel! Schlimazel! Are you ready to see America's most beloved Milwaukee girls on the make on the big screen? According to director Garry Marshall, creator of 'Happy Days,' he has hopes to put the spinoff from that show, the successful 'Laverne & Shirley' to the movies. As with all the other hopes for silver screen adaptations, this one comes with some fanciful casting attached, too.

Garry was on 'Extra' promoting his new romantic comedy 'Valentine's Day' and revealed the 'Laverne & Shirley' dream casting: Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel. That's right. This pair of Shotz Brewery factory employees -- who live in a basement apartment in 1960 Milwaukee and struggle to find the men of their dreams -- would be played by two of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Is that a cynical way of looking at it? Yes, it is.

Richard Stahl dead at 74

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 24th 2006 3:03PM
Richard StahlJust the other day I was wondering what happened to Richard Stahl. He was so funny in so many character parts, and then he seemed to vanish. He had been battling Parkinson's Disease for the past ten years, and died last Sunday in Los Angeles.

Stahl was in tons of TV shows over the past 40 years, including All in the Famly, Columbo, Laverne and Shirley, Benson, Good Times, Maude, Bonanza, That Girl, Love, American Style, Happy Days, Soap, Barney Miller, The Facts of Life, the original Love Boat TV movie, and was a regular on the 80s sitcom It's A Living. I'll always remember him from several very funny appearances in The Odd Couple. He was also in several movies, including Five Easy Pieces, Billy Jack, and Slaughter House-Five.

(That's him on the right in the photo, being attacked by Son of Blob.)
