  • The Women of ‘The Talk’ Dish On Dream Guests, ‘The Real Housewives’ and Catfights

    When five smart, high-powered, self-made women get together, claws generally come out and the fur flies. But that’s the exact opposite of what happened when CBS’s Watch magazine recently gathered the women of “The Talk” — Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler — together for a very candid roundtable interview. “There are a lot of representations of women on television where they just aren’t being kind to each other,” Tyler says of what makes “The Talk” stand out. “Female-focused television has become antagonistic—some of the most popular shows are about women competing with each other—and I don’t think there are any shows where the women are as supportive and as kind to each other.”

  • Emmy Nominee Scott Clifton Opens Up on Playing a (Seriously) Tough Character

    It’s not easy being “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Liam Spencer, a man whose heart has flipped back and forth between Kim Matula’s Hope Logan and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood’s Steffy Forrester for the better part of two and a half years. And that’s what makes receiving an Emmy nomination all the sweeter for portrayer Scott Clifton, who for the first time has been nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actor category as opposed to the Outstanding Younger Actor category he’s been in five times (and won once, in 2011).

Despite the character’s many problems, fans fell in love with Katherine — as well as the actress who so effortlessly brought her to life.

    “Days of our Lives’” Arianne Zucker may have received a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in this year’s Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards race, but she’s not taking all of the credit. “I’m so proud of all of us,” she says of her nomination as well as the show’s 17 other Emmy nods. “We’re an ensemble cast and crew.
