Previously on Desperate Housewives: A fire broke out , and Dave saved Mike’s life for some mysterious reason, while Porter was the prime suspect due to his history of arson and his hatred of Anne’s psycho husband.
While the fire didn’t kill any major characters, its effects are widespread. Carlos gets good medical news, Orson gets bad news, Susan learns about Katherine and Mike, and Lynette proves how far she’s willing to go to protect her kids.
A scan reveals a possible cure for Carlos’ blindness, which fills Gabi (Eva Longoria Parker) with worry because since he lost his sight, she’s let herself go. Finally, an excuse for Desperate Housewives to let Tony Parker’s wife look hot. Gabi goes on a diet, but her adorably pudgy kids aren’t going along with it, so Gabi yells at her kids, blaming her two “brats” for her fatter figure.
The surgery gets moved up, freaking Gabi out because she doesn’t have enough time to get into shape. She comes clean, and Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira) reveals he loves her for more than just her looks by telling a story about their dating years that is totally unbelievably because it involves Gabi eating a plate full of BBQ ribs with reckless abandon, something the old Gabi never would’ve done.
Mike and Katherine’s secret relationship is exposed thanks to an overly snoopy Susan (Teri Hatcher). After learning the truth, an angry Susan confronts Bree, who knew about it, and Bree reads her the riot act for being stupid enough to divorce Mike (James Denton) when everyone knows Susan is still in love with him. Susan’s plan is to tell Katherine (Dana Delany) it’s OK for her to date Mike even though it makes Susan sad.
Orson (Kyle MacLachlan) got a septum injury during the fire, causing him to snore rather loudly. This obviously upsets Bree (Marcia Cross) and leads to a subplot the writers probably came up with at the last minute just so Marcia Cross would have something to do in this episode. The wackiness involves camomile tea laced with sleeping pills and a cooking demonstration. If you’ve seen Lucille Ball selling Vitameatavegamin, you know what happens.
After the debacle, Bree learns the truth and blackmails Orson into getting the surgery to cure his snoring. The doctor is mortified and hopes his own relationship will never become as bad as that. This leads to a surprise revelation that the doctor is living with his boyfriend, Andrew (Shawn Pyfrom)!
The cops target Porter due to the fact that he threatened the club owner’s life. They’re not the only ones who are suspicious, because Lynette (Felicity Huffman) thinks Porter did it too, so she lies to the police to cover it up. She vows to protect her son, even if he’s a murderer. This involves giving Anne some money and helping her flee, on the condition that she stays away forever. Anne also tells Lynette that there is no baby. Later, Lynette begs her son to always be honest with her, but then she turns around and lies to him about not knowing where Anne is.
The weight of being called a hero for saving Mike gets to Dave (Neal McDonough) until he hears that the police suspect Porter. Dave uses this to make up a story to tell the police about seeing Porter in the storage room the night of the fire.
Next week on Desperate Housewives: Carlos can see, Katherine has a bowling ball dropped on her foot, Porter may also be sleeping with Edie, and Andrew is getting married to his doctor boyfriend who may have starred in gay porn. In other words, a perfect recipe for a hilarious episode.

Gossip Girl: Who’s Stealing Blair’s Spotlight?
Will hotties Rufus and Lily ever get their due on Gossip Girl? Sure, they’re really really really old (kidding!), but that didn’t make it any less exciting to hear that there were plans in the works for a series of Young Rufus and Lily in Love webisodes.
But Josh Schwartz himself tells me exclusively that while that idea was explored, that concept won’t be going forward and instead another Gossip Girl fave is going to be featured in new mobile content instead.
Who is getting the spotlight? And why do I get the feeling Blair (Leighton Meester) would blow a gasket if she knew this person was getting all this attention?
Dorota, Blair’s loyal but much-put-upon housekeeper and confidante, is finally getting some glory of her own. According to Josh Schwartz, talks of doing a Young-Lily-and-Rufus web series were scratched and replaced with “a special Verizon series all about Dorota.”
Or, as Blair would call her, “DOROTA!!”
Gossip Girl signed an agreement with Verizon late last year that puts a variety of Verizon phones in the hands of our Upper East Side faves and has now paved the way for a Verizon-exclusive look at the secret life of Dorota (Zuzanna Szadkowski). We might even learn crazy secrets like…her last name!
Don’t know about you, but over the past few installments of Gossip Girl Dorota has quietly turned into one of my fave characters. (Among other things, I would love to see Dorota give “Basshole” Chuck a talking-to about his bad behavior with Blair.)
Does this sound fun to you? Post in the comments…

Grey’s Anatomy: What Is Wrong With Izzie Stevens?
Grey’s Anatomy has had some nutty storylines before, but nothing has stret
ched the limits of plausibility quite as much as “Izzie does the deed with Dead Denny.” Not even the non-melty icicle that stabbed Cristina!
As you can see from sneak peek of next week’s episode above, Izzie still appears to be 100 percent off her rocker.
So what the bejeezus is going on? It’s time to find out: Is Isobel Stevens, M.D. (Katherine Heigl), crazy, grieving, fantasizing or, quite possibly, all of the above?
Theory #1: Izzie Has a Brain Tumor
Evidence: Symptoms of a tumor: inability to concentrate (check), gradual changes in intellectual or emotional capacity (check), lethargy (check), changes in behavior or personality (check), and/or hallucinations (check).
Verdict: Debunked…or so we think. Shonda Rhimes told my frenemy Michael Ausiello, “I think the love triangle with Denny, Izzie and Alex is among the most interesting we’ve ever done. Watching the chemistry between Jeffrey and Katherine again has been really touching. I can’t wait for our viewers to see where we’re taking it. But what it won’t involve is Izzie having a brain tumor.”
Come on, Shonda! We know your games; you’re just trying to throw us off the scent!
Theory #2: Izzie Is Losing Her Mind
Evidence: She is having hallucinations of her dead fiancé. Active, ongoing hallucinations where they have tons of sweaty sex and he incessantly follows her around. If it looks crazy, sounds crazy and smells crazy, it probably is crazy. Even the Seattle Grace nurses have blogged that she’s out of her right mind: “Izzie Stevens has lost it. I mean it. She’s gone…I hope things get better for her because it looks like Izzie can’t take one more bad thing happening…” Could the nurses know more than we think they know?
Verdict: Izzie could very well be on the verge of a nervous breakdown, which could definitely have implications for her relationship with Alex. His mom was nuts, and Ava (Elizabeth Reaser) had a devastating breakdown of her own last year–a situation, it’s worth noting, that Izzie helped Alex endure.
All this does beg the question, though: Why is Alex so crazy-making? Is he just too hot? Does his pure sexual energy fry the brain?
Theory #3: Izzie Is Dead, Too
Evidence: Everything is going right for Iz, other than seeing her dead ex-fiancé. She has roommates who love her, boy toy Alex (Justin Chambers), who finally wants to be with her, and a job she loves, despite the fact she stole a heart…Is it possible that it’s all just a happy limbo where Izzie has dwelt since she killed herself after Denny’s first demise? What, too M. Night Shyamalan for you?
Verdict: As far as the rest of the characters are concerned, Izzie is alive and well, but who knows? And Mer has communed with dead Denny, dead Kyle Chandler and her dead mom.
Theory #4: Izzie Has Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
Evidence: The girl is way too busy fighting for surgeries to even take a moment to deal with the loss of her fiancé. This has happened once before, when Izzie was too active being an underwear model to face the emotional reality of putting her daughter up for adoption.
Verdict: Izzie’s own best theory on what’s happening to her is a delayed grief experience, and who’s to say the doctor can’t diagnose herself…
Theory #5: Izzie Has an Overactive Imagination
Evidence: Plain and simple, sex with a dead man is not possible, even if it is…fulfilling. Coexecutive producer Joan Rater said on the Grey’s Writers’ Blog: “Izzie knows this isn’t real, she knows that, but it feels real and she just…closes her eyes and, you heard the sounds coming from the room, as Meredith said, it sounded kinda porny, so whatever’s going on with the dead guy, the sex is good, at least …”
Verdict: If this is the big love story the writers were hinting at for Heigl, all I can say is “What the frak?!” She’s essentially having a love story with herself, and that’s not healthy.
So which theory do you think fits best? Or do you have a better one?
New Ghost Whisperer Spoilers: David Conrad on Jim, Melinda, the Watchers and all the unresolved ghosts in Grandview!

Conrad says death brings his ‘Whisperer’ character to life
By Amy Amatangelo, Boston Herald, Friday, November 28, 2008 –
David Conrad wants fans of CBS’ “Ghost Whisperer” (tonight at 8 on WBZ, Ch. 4) to know there’s no reason to panic.
Earlier this month, Conrad’s character Jim was murdered. But, in keeping with the series’ paranormal bent, Jim entered Sam’s (Kenneth Mitchell) deceased body. Now his beloved wife Melinda (Jennifer Love Hewitt) must help Sam (who is really Jim) through his amnesia.
“I’m not going anywhere,” Conrad said. “I am there most of the time.”
Executive producer P.K. Simonds promised that viewers will see Conrad, and not actor Kenneth Mitchell, who plays Sam, 99 percent of the time.
Conrad said the controversial story line finally gave him a chance to do something different.
“I think actually it’s an exciting development instead of going through the same kind of trope that we usually do, which is nice but somewhat predictable. Look, after three years, Love and I were like, ‘Oh, no, another kitchen scene.’ We kiss each other and its, ‘OK, honey, I’ll give you a back rub,’ end of show,” he said. “It’s kind of cool for us to walk out and do a scene that we’ve never done before, and I think that will reflect in the show.”
The Pittsburgh native said the story that will unfold over the rest of the season is akin to a prequel.
“I get to play the part we never got to play at all, which was, I meet this stranger who I am really attracted to. They get to date, flirt, fall back in love with each other, and that’s thrilling.”
Conrad has been preparing himself for his character’s demise since filming the pilot.
“I thought, you know what, at some point they are going to hand me a pink slip,” he said. “But I didn’t know it would be in such a creative and kind of cool way. I thought somehow I was going to become sort of ghostly, and I kind of looked forward to it, and I have to say I think Jim kind of looked forward to it. From the pilot, he was always fascinated by what’s on the other side.”
Simonds said the plot will finally allow the show to tap into the full complement of Conrad’s talent.
“David is an amazing actor, and one of the reasons that we were excited about doing this in the first place is that we knew we had an actor that could do a lot more than frankly we were asking him to do.”
Both Simonds and Conrad are aware that many fans haven’t yet made peace with the story line.
“You feel bad because you don’t want the audience to feel bad,” Simonds said. “You don’t set out to do that, ever. But at the same time, we knew where we were going with it, and we were sure for the fans who stuck around, it would be a worthwhile journey for them.”
We Chat with ‘Ghost Whisperer’s’ David Conrad!
David Conrad is dead to me. To all of you. And to all past, present and future Ghost Whisperer fans. But in the mystical world of miracles depicted in GW, that doesn’t mean that he’s really dead, that his character has been killed off, or even that he’s taking a hiatus to rehabilitate a sex-addiction on a VH1 reality show. No. It does mean, however, that in a recent Ghost Whisperer plot twist, the nature of Jennifer Love Hewitt’s character, Melinda and David Conrad’s character, Jim, will continue to change in a surprising way. And since we’re pretty big ghost fans and quite partial to inside voices and low-talking, we decided to catch up with Whisperer star Conrad and executive producer P.K. Simonds to get some real dirt on the turn J. Love’s hit show will take! Check out our full interview after the jump.
What was your reaction when they brought the “Hey we’re going to kill you on the show but don’t worry – you’re going to be in another body” storyline to you?
Conrad: My first reaction was kind of like something out of Prizzi’s Honor or Goodfellas, where they walk up to you and they’re like, “Yeah, you’re gonna’ end up here for a while.” I was pretty sure that they were very nicely saying “you’re done, you’re off the show.” But P.K. in a very polite, very reassuring way said, “I have this great plan…” At first I was like, “Oh, c’mon…” But then I was just like, “Great.” It was a face-to-face meeting, a guy knocked on my door and handed me an envelope. [Laughs.]
Do you miss the supportive character you were playing before now?
Conrad: Well that’s really an exciting thing for me. What I initially liked about the script was that John Grey wrote a character from the get-go that really loves his wife, he likes what she does – he thinks it’s a little freaky – but it’s still something that he likes about her. The core thing that she is and the best thing she does – he loves, which is probably a good thing. But after a few years for me, I guess the disbelieving thing – and I don’t really know how that’s going to go – but I guess what’s exciting for me is getting to play the part I never got to play at all, which is, I meet this stranger and I’m really attracted to her for some reason, I really like her, and so I really get to flirt and we get to start all over again.
Is the other actor that’s currently playing your character on set all the time? Do you have kind of a strange relationship with this person that you’re sharing a role with?
Conrad: He’s a sweet guy and he is around pretty often. Um yeah, it is kind of strange. But he’s amazing at imitating me – I try to do it sometimes – but he’s amazing at kind of mimicking some of my movements and what not – and he’s just fought on, I mean his timing is great.
Simonds: If I can just jump in and say… Kenneth Mitchell – the actor – is a great guy and he’s actually more of a model, he’s just kind of there in weight. He’s there to remind us what the rest of the world sees. But because we as the audience quickly understand that it really is Jim in that body and that’s because that’s essentially what Melinda sees when she looks at him – not literally but that’s who she knows is in there – we see David probably 99 percent of the time.
Although we’re getting 99 percent of David right now, how long will we be seeing David from Melinda’s side?
Simonds: We’ll always be seeing David from Melinda’s side. I know I’ve mentioned before that Heaven Can Wait is a big influence – it’s a great movie, I highly recommend renting it. It’s one of my favorite movies ever. The storytelling that we’re doing is kind of picking up the storytelling at the end of that movie. Which is when Joe Pendleton, Warren Beatty’s character, makes the last leap into another body so while we see him, we know it’s still his soul. He doesn’t even remember his past life. But that’s all by way of saying in that movie we never ever saw any of the other characters whose body he was occupying. So what you’re sort of saying to the audience is that it’s still Jim’s soul – it still in every sense is Jim and that’s who we want to see. We’re interested in seeing the soul of Jim and obviously the real reason we’re interested in that is because we have David and he’s an amazing actor. And one of the things that excited us about doing this story in the first place is that we knew we had an actor who could do a lot more than frankly we were asking him to do – and he’s been doing an amazing, amazing job of filling out this new role – which we’re really excited for the audience to see.
What would you say to fans that are sort of freaked by this storyline?
Conrad: I mean… what they’ll do is they’ll say that and then they’ll watch it and realize that I am there most of the time. As P.K. said, I am still there 90 percent of the time.
Simonds: 90 percent in the way that we want to remind you that people in the show see him differently when they look at him. But aside from reminding them that – since it really is Jim’s soul, we want to remind the audience of that and focus on that. He’s the same character. He just doesn’t look the same to other people. But a majority of the time you’re not seeing him through other people’s eyes.
Conrad: I think the only thing that’s gone is the memory. I think actually it’s an exciting development because instead of going through the same kind of trope that we usually do, it’s like a prequel. You’ll get to see them date, flirt, and fall back in love again. And that’s thrilling. Maybe that’s what’s at the heart of what makes them so exciting – that chemistry between them.
So far, Jim has memory loss since being in his new body. Is there a plan to resolve this issue or will it last forever?
Simonds: Yes. We’ve plotted it out through the end of the season, so we know where we’re going to go. We don’t want it to last forever. And really what we’re interested in is a journey. You’ve got these two characters, who, as David pointed out… it was always our intention to do kind of an emotional prequel because now we get to see what may have played out at the beginning of their relationship. Part of the reason she was drawn to Jim is he was very believing, very ready and very open to believing her gift and accepting it and embracing it. Without getting too intellectual, one of things we have to explore in this season’s story is what makes a person. It’s partly their soul and partly their experiences. Here’s a guy who still has Jim’s soul but it’s kind of a purer version of that soul in many ways, yet he has different experiences, because he’s been brought into the world, almost reincarnated, under such bizarre circumstances. It changes the way he reacts when he learns things about her that we all know as fans. Even though he at this point doesn’t have access to his life’s memories, those things are going to come back and that’s what makes the storytelling even more interesting.
Conrad: I mean it’s like Star Wars where we’re going back to the thing before. I mean, after three years, Love and I were like, “Oh, no. We’ve got a kitchen scene. Yeah, that’s great. Tell me the story. Okay, honey, I’ll give you a backrub. End of show.” It’s kind of cool. I’m really excited to be able to do a scene that we’ve never done before, and weren’t able to do before. It’s cool to find that kind of spark in one another.
Did it ever occur to you that, in a show about ghosts and spirits, that you could become one of them?
Conrad: Actually, you know what, I think it occurred to me while I was filming the pilot. I was like “I wonder when they’re going to hand me the pink slip…” [Laughs.] I didn’t know it would be in such a creative and cool way. I thought they’d be like “Hey, we hired David Duchovny and he’s going to come on the show and you’re going.” I knew it all along in some way. I thought at some point it would be very logical for my character to be tied into that aspect of the storytelling. I kind of looked forward to it. I’d have to say that Jim probably looked forward to it because, since the pilot, he’s always asked the question, “What’s on the other side?”
Many Ghost Whisperer fans are really interested in the romance between Jim and Melinda, which has become a huge part of the storytelling. For FEARnet fans, the supernatural aspect is probably a bit more interesting. With the new storyline, where do you see this fitting in?
Simonds: Well obviously we have new ghosts every week. We’ve been focused a little bit less on new ghost powers and manifestations and so forth – partly because with the amount of the premise portion that the audience is being asked to embrace with the storyline with Jim, he’s large enough that we kind of don’t want to strain the limits. But once we head towards the resolution of that story, we want to sort of get back into what you’re talking about and that sort of stuff that’s related to what we’ve been doing or were doing before in terms of possession. Also these ghosts that we’ve introduced at the beginning of the seasons, the Watchers, we’re going to see more of them and we’re going to learn more about who they are and how they work in relationship to the world of the beyond. It’s kind of complicated and more two-edged. Then there’s some other stuff that I can’t really talk about for the end of this season and the beginning of next.

SUPERNATURAL – the good verses evil fun and funny The CW show – took a different turn in its fourth season. No longer is it a single demon or bounty that the Winchester brothers are working on or trying to uncover,but instead we went a little more worldly. As in the end of the world, as the battle between Heaven and Hell became the focus of the show. While he was very reluctant to give anything away in terms of what we might be seeing in the mythology aspects of the show, executive producer and director Robert Singer spoke with iF Magazine about SUPERNATURAL and what the rest of the season may hold. Again, while he’s reserved, there are some nice little hints that should be enough to whet the appetites of fans of the show.
iF Magazine: This season of SUPERNATURAL introduced the opposite side of the coin for the Winchester brothers with Heaven, God and angels all introduced in the first episode helping to bring back Dean from hell. Was that always the plan after the third season or was it something that came up later on?
ROBERT SINGER: That was the plan we came up with and the end of last season. Getting an early pick up was helpful in that we could plan ahead early
iF: How did the writer’s strike from last year affect your writing this year, if at all?
SINGER: The writers strike just made us accelerate the plans we had for last season. We got to show mythology quicker than we had intended.
iF: I know you had to truncate the third season, so was there a few things you wanted to do last year that we are seeing this year or is it all pretty much a new, clean slate?
SINGER: A clean slate.
iF: I love that the writers of SUPERNATURAL are willing to take chances with the episodes we are given and that they aren’t all having to deal with the mythology or the theme of the season. What’s the idea behind that, to give the audience a little more than just the same old week in and week out or to stretch the writer’s creativity or both?
SINGER: We like to mix it up. When we do stand-alones, we want it to feel like a small movie. That can be horror, comedy horror, or in some cases fantasy. We make a concerted effort that when we do a mythology episode that we really move the mythology along. That the audience gets some real movement, not just dribs and drabs.
F: It seems SUPERNATURAL is a perfect outlet for these type of comedic or throwback episodes we see on occasion. Are there any future episodes this season that we can look forward to and what might the plotlines be?
SINGER: I think we are pretty much done with the broad comedy episodes for this year, although we try to infuse every episode with some level of comedic moments.
iF: Speaking of which, I simply loved the “Monster Movie” episode, it did everything right, from being filmed in black and white, to the throwback direction, to the classic monster scenes in that episode. Whose idea was it to do an episode from an era gone by?
SINGER: It was [creator] Eric [Kripke] and Ben [Edlund's] idea. I was lucky enough to get to direct it. I’m glad you appreciated the homage images to the early films.
iF: Heaven and Hell is a big theme this year with Lucifer trying to unlock the seals to bring hell on Earth. While the show has dealt with demons and monsters since its inception, idea of Heaven is new for the show. Was it just a nice fit for the show, or just time for it to come about or just opened up a slew of new possibilities for the show that wouldn’t have been there before?
SINGER: It seemed a logical progression, but Eric really conceptualized it.
iF: We are pretty much in the dark as to why the angels and God lifted Dean from Hell, but they have hinted that he has some purpose … possibly other than stopping Lucifer from unlocking all of the seals to Hell. Are we going to find this out along the season, hopefully?
SINGER: You will get the answer to that question by season’s end, but not from me here
and now. Sorry

Episode Recap “Robbing Hood”
Ned was never the popular kid. At school, he was forced to play with an even more unpopular kid with an unfortunate jaw line. So, when Eugene’s pet snake choked on his pet bunny, Ned felt compelled to bring Eugene’s pets back to life. In exchange, two innocent woodland creatures had to pass the buck, but Ned decided that the act of charity outweighed the consequences.
Back to present day, Ned is taking out his stress on the pies. He’s rightfully worried about Dwight Dixon. Dwight is now dating Vivian and is bound to see a picture of Chuck somewhere around the house. The problem? Chuck served him a cappuccino at the Pie Hole. He’ll know her secret, thus exposing Ned’s secret. They need to find out what he wants… and quick.
Meanwhile, Emerson has taken on a new case, and this one’s cha-ching with a capital C. The facts are these: Daniel Hill is a well-paid lawyer who only had one client– Gustav Holst, an immigrant entrepreneur who struck it rich by living the American dream.

Hill thinks Gustav’s gold-digging wife is the true culprit…. Continue reading »

A brain tumor is still the number one speculation circulating around Katherine Heigl’s ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ character, Dr. Izzie Stevens, though there are other interesting posibilities as well.
Several speculations have circulated around Dr. Izzie Stevens, one of “Grey’s Anatomy” characters, regarding her recently complex situation with her deceased fiance, Denny Duquette. E! Online’s Kristin Dos Santos has given some speculations about what truly happens to Izzie, played by Katherine Heigl.
Similar to what has already been speculated previously, Kristin first guesses that Dr. Izzie’s character may suffer from a brain tumor. Though “Grey’s Anatomy” creator, Shonda Rimes, has made a statement to EW’s Michael Ausiello hinting that Izzie’s brain tumor is only a rumor, Kristin thinks that Izzie’s recently behavior has a strong implication of someone suffering from a brain tumor.
Next assumption implies that Izzie’s character could have lost her mind. In other words, Izzie may become mad for she is having hallucinations over the dead Denny Duquette. Another hypothesis suggests that Izzie may suffer from a post-traumatic stress disorder because she is too busy fighting for surgeries.
Other than those speculations, Kristin also believes that Izzie may have an overactive imagination which proof comes from the fact that Izzie has sex with the dead Denny in her mind. Finally, the last assumption lets out the possibility of Izzie already becoming among the dead people too. — Ace Showbiz
Over the river and through the woods we go, and Addison’s brother Archer has come for a visit… and to stir up some trouble with our Oceanside doctors. Charlotte’s secret also comes out, and Pete’s friend Meg is back for a visit too. We’re reaching some storyline arcs tonight, I think.
Addison and Officer Kevin return from a night of go-kart racing to find her front door open. Officer Kevin morphs into policeman mode (with Addison following right behind, yeah, right) to find Addison’s brother Archer and Addison’s neighbor getting it on in the kitchen. Archer Montgomery, an ex-doctor and current famous author, is anti-L.A. and decidedly anti-Officer Kevin.
Archer invites Addison and the doctors to a swanky book party, and during the party, Archer works the room and all of the doctors. Officer Kevin and Archer start in on each other, and Archer says that Addison is a trust fund baby worth millions, who is only “enjoying” Kevin for now. Archer also hooks Sam up with a hottie, and hooks up with Naomi himself. The next morning, after Archer’s walk of shame, Addison asks Archer where he was, hoping that he helped Naomi home before his night of debauchery. Addison’s eyebrows realize what happened before we switch to… Continue reading »

Warning: If you’re an out-of-work actor, this story may induce uncontrollable head-scratching and/or violent convulsions.
Gossip Girl third-stringer Connor Paolo, who plays Blake Lively’s little (and recently outed) brother, Eric van der Woodsen, has rejected an offer from the show to become a series regular.
OMFGRUSERIOUS? Totally serious.
So what’s the deal? Is he scared to be gaycast, as Thomas Dekker allegedly was circa Heroes? Nah. My Gossip rumor monger insists that the One Life to Live alum is “totally comfortable playing a gay character.” More likely, it’s about dollars and common sense.
See, the deal that was put before Paolo was not for all shows produced, or ASP as it’s called in the biz. Rather, the contract called for him to appear in only half of this season’s 25 episodes, which is about what he’s been averaging as a recurring player, anyway. So, basically, by remaining a free agent, he’s got the same gig with none of the strings attached.
“He probably didn’t want to commit to being ninth fiddle on a show,” theorizes one TV agent. “Sure, he’ll make less money, but he’s free to accept other opportunities in TV and film should they come along. It’s not a bad move if you have aspirations to do other things.”
And although a Gossip rep declined to comment, and so did Paolo’s agent, my insider stresses that, contract or no, the young thespian remains happily committed to TV’s hottest soap for the foreseeable future. Schedule permitting, of course.

Misha Collins is having a hell of a good time on Supernatural.
The actor plays Castiel, the angel who saved Dean Winchester from you know where, and he’s fast emerged as a fan favorite. And so Collins – an actor whose credits include Charmed, Girl, Interrupted, 24 (as Dennis Hopper’s assassin son), ER, CSI: NY and Over Her Dead Body – will appear in at least another half dozen episodes of Supernatural this season and just might stick around far longer than that. UGO recently caught up with Collins for an exclusive interview. Here’s what he had to say.
UGO: So, your gig on Supernatural started out as a six-episode recurring character arc and now it looks like you’re going to on the show for the foreseeable future. How cool is that?
Collins: It’s totally awesome. It’s kind of like a dream come true, really, because it’s so much better to come into a show like this that’s establish and, in my opinion, really good, than doing a pilot that might shoot six episodes of and you don’t know if it’s going to catch on. It’s so great to come into something that’s established and already has a fan base. It’s a great character. I have got nothing to complain about. I love Vancouver. I’m sort of pinching myself. It’s great.
UGO: How are you enjoying working with Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and Robert Wisdom, who plays Uriel to your Castiel?
Collins: I can say in all honestly that this is probably the best television set I have ever worked on, which is amazing because it’s probably also the hardest-working set I’ve ever been on. They are working incredibly long hours and Jared and Jensen are shouldering virtually ever scene. So they work really hard, and they’re not doing season four eye rolls or yawning or spending the entire time off in a corner texting their girlfriends. They’re really there and they do their work, and they have senses of humor. They’re both actually really witty and sarcastic, which makes it so much more fun to work with them. And Robert Wisdom is an awesome guy. We had an incredibly long van ride back from the set one day, where the traffic was just horrible and we were in the van for about two and a half hours. We told each other our life stories and we found out that he had lived in Washington, D.C. and I lived in Washington, D.C. I had interned at the White House and he had interned at the Capitol. We both worked at National Public Radio headquarters in D.C., and we’re both now playing angels. We both practice similar kinds of meditation. So he’s a fascinating guy.
UGO: We couldn’t help but notice that in last week’s episode, Uriel did all the heavy lifting in the fight scenes. When is Castiel going to kick some ass?
Collins: I’m going to make an uneducated prediction and say by the end of this season there will be some ass-kicking. The show is going on a little break, but it should pick up after that. (In last week’s episode) I was a bit disappointed when we choreographed the fight scenes and I thought Castiel got cheated of his warrior qualities, but I’m sure that time will come.

Jim is dead; long live Jim. Yes, Jim (David Conrad), the understanding and adoring husband of Melinda (Jennifer Love Hewitt), died of his injuries a couple of weeks back on Ghost Whisperer. But, pulling a page from Heaven Can Wait, Jim will remain very much a part of Melinda’s life and Conrad will stick around on Ghost Whisperer. How, you ask? Well, Jim is now safely nestled inside the body of Sam (Kenneth Mitchell), and even though the characters within the Ghost Whisperer universe – except Melinda – will see Sam, it’s Jim through and through. You following any of that?
Anyway, for a better understanding of it all, check out tonight’s episode of Ghost Whisperer, as Melinda embarks on her second shot at true love and contends with Jim/Sam’s amnesia. In the meantime, read on to hear the thoughts of David Conrad and Ghost Whisperer co-executive producer P.K. Simonds, who took to the phone the other day for a conference call with journalists to discuss recent and upcoming events on the hit show.
UGO: David, how did they tell you about this storyline? Did they come up to you and say, “We’re going to kill, but don’t worry, you’ll be in another body?”
Conrad: My first reaction was kind of like something out of Prizzi’s Honor or Goodfellas, where they kind of walk up to you and say, “You’re gonna disappear for a while.” I was sure in a very nice way they were saying, “You’re done. You’re out of the show.” But P.K., the man on the phone with us, in a very erudite, complete and assuring way, said, “I have this great plan…” And at first I was like, “Oh, come on…” And then I thought, “Great.” But, yeah, it was a face to face meeting. A guy knocked on the door and handed me my envelope.
UGO: So many shows and movies of this kind have a spouse who’s disbelieving. Jim was so open and believing and supportive. Now, in a way, you’re the familiar disbelieving character. How different will it be to play Jim as Sam?
Conrad: That’s really exciting. In the first place, what I really liked about (the show) was that (series creator) John Gray wrote a character who, from the get-go, knows this about his wife. He thinks it’s kind of cool, that it’s a little freaky, but it’s something he loves about her. The core thing that she is, the best thing that she does, he loves, which in any marriage is probably a good thing. But after three years, for me – the disbelieving thing, I’m not sure how that’s going to go – what’s exciting is that I get to play the part we never got to play at all, which is I meet this stranger and I’m really attracted to her for some reason and I really like her. So we get to flirt. It’s like we start all over again.
UGO: How much is Kenneth Mitchell around? And how strange is it for you to now share your role with him?
Conrad: He’s a sweet guy and he is around pretty often. Yeah, it is kind of strange. He’s really good. He’s amazing at imitating me. I’ll do a scene and he has to mimic some of the movements, and he’s spot-on. His timing is crazy.
Simonds: If I can jump in… Kenneth Mitchell is a terrific guy. The model is actually much more Heaven Can Wait. He’s there to remind us of what the rest of the world sees, but because we as an audience quickly understand that it really is Jim in that body and that because that’s what Love Hewitt’s character sees when she looks at him – not literally, but it’s who she knows is in there – we’ll see David 99 percent of the time.
UGO: It’s Jim now, but some David Conrad fans are concerned that once the transition is complete it’ll be this other guy, and not David, that they’ll see. How long will we see David at Jennifer Love Hewitt’s side?
Simonds: We will always be seeing David at her side. I mentioned Heaven Can Wait. It’s a great movie. Everyone should rent it. It’s one of my favorite movies ever. There’s too many people who haven’t seen it and it’s a brilliant, brilliant movie…, but that’s all by way of saying that in that movie we never, ever saw any of the other bodies Joe Pendleton (Warren Beatty) was occupying. What you’re saying to the audience, which is true in our case, is since it is still Jim’s soul it’s still in almost every sense Jim. So that’s who we want to see. We’re interested in the soul of Jim, and obviously the real reason we’re interested in that is we have David, and David is an amazing actor. One of the things that excited us about doing this story in the first place was we knew had an actor who could do a lot more than, frankly, we were asking him to do. And he’s done an amazing, amazing job of filling this new role, which we’re really excited for the audience to start to see, and it really kicks off with (tonight’s) episode.

His character is dead, and David Conrad of CBS’ “Ghost Whisperer” loves it.
The actor, who plays Jim Clancy, the husband of the ghost whisperer herself, Melinda (Jennifer Love Hewitt), was killed off in last week’s episode. Conrad said the twist is giving him and Love Hewitt the chance to reboot their love story.
“What’s exciting to me is I get to play the part [I] never got to play at all,” he told reporters Thursday. “… We get to start all over again.”
Confused? Let me explain. When Jim died, his ghost took over the body of a dead man named Sam after his soul “went into the light.” Now a revived Sam—who doesn’t look like Jim to anyone but Melinda—has amnesia. He doesn’t have Sam’s, or Jim’s, memories.
Viewers will see Conrad as Sam/Jim “99 percent of the time.” For the other 1 percent—just to remind viewers who the other characters are seeing—actor Kenneth Mitchell plays Sam/Jim.
”It is kind of strange,” Conrad said of Mitchell. “He’s amazing at imitating me … I’ll do a scene and he has to mimic the movement and he’s spot on.”
Conrad said that because Melinda wants to be with Jim, she and Sam must fall in love, beginning with the episode called “Heart and Soul,” airing at 7 p.m. Friday.
“It’s like a prequel,” he said. “They get to date, flirt, fall back in love with each other. And that’s thrilling, that’s maybe at the heart of what makes them exciting, that chemistry.”
Conrad said he wasn’t surprised with the story line, considering the show deals with death, ghosts and other supernatural phenomenon.
“It occurred to me when I was filming the pilot [that] at some point they were going to hand me the pink slip,” he joked. “I didn’t know it would be in such a creative, cool way. I thought they’d be like, ‘You know, we hired David Duchovny, and he’s coming on the show and you’re going …’
“I knew it all the time. Somehow, I was going to become ghostly.”

All I want to know is the bottom line when it comes to Ghost Whisperer‘s Jim dying. Will he ever be brought back to life (his life), or is his only involvement going to be in the body of Sam?
MATT: It’s simple, really: Jim is now going by “Sam,” but Sam is mostly Jim. “Since it’s Jim’s soul [inside Sam's body], we will always be seeing David [Conrad] at Melinda’s side,” exec producer P.K. Simonds tells me, dismissing rumors that Conrad is leaving the show. Much of the story to come involves Sam (who to everyone else looks like Jericho‘s Kenneth Mitchell) realizing that he has this new life inside of him. As Conrad explained it to me, “It’s the whole question of how you define yourself, in terms of what people say you were and what you slowly find out you are. Jim gets told by people who knew Sam that he was ‘this way,’ so he doesn’t believe what Melinda says.” OK, maybe “simple” wasn’t the best adjective to use earlier. — TV Guide
The last episode of Ghost Whisperer experienced a rather daunting blow in the ratings. Its previous installment, “Heart and Soul” brought in 11.36 million viewers, 300K shy of its preceding season high. The results actually lost quite some fans due to the plot twists it’s been employing, but the series remains a driving force in the 8pm timeslot.
The Jim/Sam storyline seems to be keeping fans curious, which is probably the strategy of the writers. It raises more questions than answers, sometimes inundating the viewer with mystery that it gets rather difficult to keep up. But even though it’s gotten pretty bad response from the audience, Ghost Whisperer remains able to maintain its strong ratings. However, only the next few weeks will tell if they can get it higher.
On December 5, don’t forget to catch “Pieces of You,” the next episode of the Melinda-Jim saga. Ghost Whisperer airs Fridays at 8pm on CBS. — Buddy TV

The deceitful yet fragile Queen B gets her spotlight in the new promo video of ‘Gossip Girl’.
While the show is being delayed a week, The CW has let out a new promo of “Gossip Girl” that focuses on one of its Upper East Siders, Blair Waldorf. Past scenes where the so-called ‘Queen B’ appears, are compiled in a video that also features Christina Aguilera‘s new hit “Keeps Getting Better”.
Included are, her catfight scene with Serena, her telling Chuck that she hates him, her talking to the dean of Yale on how ‘traditional’ she is and also what the others think about her. Blair, the only daughter of house of design owner, Elanor Waldorf, is known for her exquisite style, her dare to achieve what she wants and her devious way in getting herself into something. “Cheating, drinking, drugs – it’s all fair game,” she once was quoted as saying.
The next episode of “Gossip Girl” titled “It’s a Wonderful Lie” will only be aired on December 1. There will be a funeral scene here for one of the show’s characters.
On other news, Buddy TV is reporting that there’s a chance that Georgina, played by Michelle Trachtenberg, will return to the series as the trouble maker who creates quite a stir for Blair and Serena in season 1. Her departure at that time was marked when she was shipped off to boarding school after Blair tricked her into reuniting with her parents. No confirmation from The CW yet regarding this. –
