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.

Posted November 27, 2008on:
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.
