The new Interceptor WILL BE BACK...

The new Interceptor, flared trousers optional extra

It's time to dig out your flared trousers and start growing back that moustache, because icon of the 60s and 70s, the Jensen Interceptor, is set to make a comeback, and it'll be built in Britain.

To be constructed in the former Jaguar plant at Browns Lane in Coventry, the new Jensen will be made from lightweight aluminium and the handcrafted body remains faithful to the original, with its long bonnet, fastback rear and seating for four.

The car made famous in TV series "The Sweeney" and "The Professionals" will be bringing the 60s back to UK streets in 2014, thanks to

She is a celebrity daughter and has been in the spotlight ever since she was two. Nevertheless, Lily Collins, daughter of British musician Phil Collins, is still surprised when people call out her name on the red carpet.
Collins has landed some impressive projects and has worked with stars including Sandra Bullock and Taylor Lautner in high-profile movies "Priest," "Abduction" and an adaptation of the best-selling YA series "The Mortal Instruments." A few months later, she was offered the role of Snow White in Relativity Media's Julia Roberts vehicle.
But the young actress says she needs more time to get used to the Hollywood way of life. "It feels very surreal," she told MTV at the "Abduction" red carpet. "It's weird getting out of a car and people are saying my name. It's still a weird concept to me."

Top 10 Jewelry In Emmy's

The Emmy’s are a magical night. For one night of the year, the lawyers, doctors, government employees, paper salesmen, high school glee clubbers, and suburban moms that we know and love from TV transform before our eyes into their glamorous Hollywood alter egos. It’s the one night that we can imagine ourselves posing on the red carpet, hoodie sweatshirt and jeans miraculously transformed into hearts and arrows diamond jewelry and floor-sweeping couture gowns. This year’s Emmy’s were no exception, providing plenty of envy-worthy jewelry and fashion inspiration to those of us watching at home.
Here are the first five out of the ten best, most interesting and most enviable jewelry looks from a diamond-studded night.
10. Glee star Jenna Ushkowitz managed to nail the futuristic-glam look, with a geometric white-and-black dress and slicked-back hair. Her simple jewelry look consisted of two opal rings, and a pair of white gemstone earrings that provided the perfect complementary note to the daring dress.
9. Bonnie Bentley is a stunt performer, an actor from Heroes, and a fresh face on the Emmy’s red carpet. She chose a relatively casual color-blocked print dress, but accessorized it perfectly with ultra-long drop earrings in black and gold, and a black and gold cuff watch.
8. Sarah Hyland may play a bratty teenager on TV, but in real life, she is a sophisticated young lady. Hyland showed off that sophistication last night, when instead of pouring on the sparkle and glitter like many of her fellow young starlets, she accessorized her salmon-colored chiffon gown with a dazzling belt and a single cuff bracelet, which she pushed high up onto her arm for a youthful, fun look.
7. You could sum up Kirsten Wiig’s Emmy’s appearance in one word: glowing. From her shimmering brown Zac Posen gown to her huge smile, Wiig’s whole look was golden. And that trend was reflected in her jewelry—a ring, earrings and stack of bracelets in warm, golden tones, courtesy of Fred Leighton.
6. She may wear hoodies and sneakers on TV, but Aubrey Plaza managed to convey Old Hollywood glamour with her wavy hair, red lips, and dramatic white halter gown. Her jewelry was perfectly on key, with simple gold earrings and two intricately-filigreed gold cuff bracelets—one on each arm!
The first half of the top five consisted of young Hollywood starlets doing their best to make it to the A-list. The second half is where competition heats up between seasoned fashion icons and celebrated stars of the silver screen. But who will take home the top prize for best jewelry look of the night?
5. Surprise Best Actress winner Melissa McCarthy might get mixed reviews on her purple long-sleeved dress, but there is no question that she nailed the jewelry choices. A delicate and yet somehow statement-making gold necklace fit her dress’ neckline perfectly, and matching wisps of gold earrings peered from her loose, wavy hair.
4. Jane Lynch changed outfits several times as part of her duties as Emmy’s host, but our favorite look was her red carpet ensemble of a strapless purple chiffon dress and a stack of bright, multicolored gemstone bangles, along with matching gemstone earrings. The look was fun, fearless and gorgeous, much like Lynch herself. Later in the show, Lynch paired a silver halter dress with antique diamond hoops, and a burgundy ball gown with a garnet cocktail ring.
3. Heidi Klum gets the “most outrageous” award of the night for pairing an incredibly ruffled Christian Siriano dress with a pair of ruby flower-shaped earrings and a flower-shaped ring that looked like they might be lifesize. But more is more with Heidi, who somehow also managed to pull of wearing her enormous diamond engagement ring and a third princess-cut diamond cocktail ring—all on the same hand. Her husband Seal gets an honorable mention for his gold pendant necklace worn over an unbuttoned shirt.
2.Gwyneth Paltrow’s midriff-baring lace dress may be causing controversy, but she deserves a prize for the way she artfully stacked a black cuff with a silver bangle, and for the tastefully small earrings that brought the whole look together. Gwyneth’s famous engagement ring completed the look.
1. Kate Winslet knows subtle glamour, and her wavy blond updo, formfitting red dress and delicately decadent silver jewelry portrayed just that. Her bold red dress needed nothing more than a pair of silvery drop earrings and a single sparkling diamond bracelet to set it off perfectly. That single diamond cuff, sparkling so much it could only be set with hearts and arrows diamonds, provided all the glitz the refined actress needs.

US Fed meeting Make Gold Falls

Sacombank Jewelry Company bought gold at VND46.66 million and sold at VND46.84 million at 11:10 am local time.
Saigon Jewelry Company, the biggest gold processor and trader in Vietnam, quoted the price at VND46.74 million for buying and VND46.87 million for selling in Ho Chi Minh City. In Hanoi, the company bought gold at the same price but sold at VND20,000 a tael higher than that in Ho Chi Minh City.
Hanoi-based Phu Quy Jewelry Company purchased SJC-brand gold at VND46.73 million and sold at VND46.93 million at the same time.
Domestically, gold fetched VND2.2 million a tael higher than global price.

On foreign currency market, the dollar exchange rate escalated this morning. Dollars were bought at VND21,050 and sold at VND21,100 on free market in Hanoi.

Internationally, gold dropped as dollar strengthened after the US Federal Reserve said that it would reduce holdings of short-term bonds and increase holdings of longer-maturity, eroding demand for the metal as an alternative investment.

The Fed plans to buy $400 billion of bonds with maturities of six to 30 years through June while selling an equal amount of debt maturing in three years or less.
In addition, Greece approved more austerity measures to receive the next rescue package from the European Union and International Monetary Fund yesterday.
Gold for immediate delivery lost as much as $24.3 an ounce, or 1.4 percent, to close at $1,781.5 an ounce on the Comex in New York.

Investor group Impose VAT On Gold Trading

The Viet Nam Association of Financial Investors has urged the Government to impose a 10 per cent value added tax (VAT) on gold trading in a move to stop the precious metal being used for economic payments.

The association said that many countries worldwide taxed the trading of gold bullion and jewellery in order to manage their markets, with Russia even imposing a special consumption tax of 20 per cent on the product.

Such a policy would help countries keep the gold market from manipulation and speculation, the association said, adding that a large amount of money was currently being pumped into gold trading as ‘dead' capital since not being directed to production.

The Ministry of Finance called on relevant ministries to share their views regarding the possible VAT imposition on credit institutions such as gold traders and foreign exchanges.

The State Bank of Viet Nam this week licensed 10 banks and gold trading companies to import a total of four tonnes of gold, expected to arrive in the country today.

The Sai Gon Jewelry Co, the country's largest gold trader, and the Phu Nhuan Jewellery Co were allowed to import 700 and 500 kilos of the mineral, respectively.

This is the third time the central bank has authorised gold trading companies to import gold since last month to help bring down soaring domestic prices.

On the domestic market, the SJC quoted gold at VND46.8/46.95 million per tael (1.2 ounces) yesterday while Bao Tin Minh Chau listed at VND46.8/47.02 million, nearly VND2 million higher than the world price. — VNS

Kirstie Alley Bulimia Allegations

KIRSTIE ALLEY is preparing to take legal action against U.S. tabloid editors after discovering they are publishing an article alleging her massive weight loss is the result of an eating disorder.

The former Cheers star, who has struggled with weight issues for years, has been shedding the pounds ever since she was forced to shape up as a contestant on U.S. TV show Dancing With the Stars earlier this year (11).

She recently claimed to have lost an impressive 100 pounds (45.5 kilograms) since March (11) after adopting a new healthy diet and strict exercise regime, and Alley showed off her new slim physique when she walked the runway at an event for New York Fashion Week last week (13Sep11).

Her drastic new look has prompted speculation about exactly how she managed to drop down to a U.S. clothing size six - and according to Alley, reporters at the National Enquirer are claiming in an upcoming article that she's become bulimic, forcing herself to vomit after every meal.

But the actress has slammed the allegations and she has vowed to take the Enquirer to court.

In a series of posts on her blog, she writes, "Soo.. heard that the Enquirer is running with a story that Im bulemic (sic)!!! 'sources' JEEZ.. never hurled (threw up) a meal in my life..JEEZ...

"Im REALLY commited (sic) (to her diet) and strong willed...If I was bulemic I can assure U I would be a size zero... I smell a big ole lawsuit.. do U?? ...Enquirer, Im coming for u this time..get ready!!"

And she's accused Enquirer editors of reckless reporting on such a serious topic: "Bulemmia (sic), is a serious sitiation (sic) not to be taken lightly.. it can cause death..this accusation is degrading 2 those who from suffer it (sic)."

Dancing with the Stars IMDB User Reviews

My friends all think I watch this program for the skin-show but they couldn't be more wrong! Okay, who wouldn't enjoy watching such a lavish disply of youthful physicality? But Dancing With The Stars is SO much more than that. Start with the moment the professional dancer meets his (or her) new partner. That could be anything from a race car driver to a famous actress to a computer geek to a cowboy -- or who knows what else? The partners are from different worlds. They barely know each other but their destinies are now in each other's hands. In a matter of moments, they will be locked in embrace -- swaying -- gripping -- tumbling -- sliding sensuously together -- and spending entire days sweating all over each other from elevated head to pointed toe.

Show #1 of the season: It's Monday and the moment of truth has arrived. All those endless practice sessions -- will they pay off? Will it be triumph or disaster? Welcome to the dancer's world. Onstage, awaiting their cue -- the partners lock eyes -- committed, body and soul! Do or die. Now or never. There may be six billion people on the planet -- but right now there is no one who can pull this off but YOU and your partner. Hit it, "live" orchestra!

A small eternity passes; the dance is over. Yes, there were some mistakes. Small ones? Huge ones? Did anyone notice? Did you make an utter fool of yourself? The ultimate challenge has passed -- the look that passes between partners is beyond description. Impossibly -- they've done it! It's over. It's a magical moment of accomplishment and relief.

Oh, but it's NOT over. Chests heaving, they walk to the judging area where they await triumph -- humiliation -- or, mercifully, maybe something in-between. Another colossal challenge looms. You just danced your heart out -- pushed yourself beyond all known limits -- gave it your ALL. But what you think does not matter. These three regal people are the judges. They have observed your efforts and will now apply an impassive clinical dissection. It doesn't matter that they are opinionated, fallible, biased, moody, and often all too human. They ARE the judges and you will have to stand there with the world watching and take it -- whatever it is ... contempt for your heroic efforts -- marginal acceptance -- praise for your feeble attempt at showmanship -- ridicule for your awkwardness -- exaltation at your excellence -- or just more salt in your wounds. You WILL accept it -- whatever it is -- and move on. You have another dance to learn for next week -- or maybe even two or three!

I hope this program brings to the public a much greater appreciation for the character of professional dancers. Though their talents are rarer, their achievements much riskier, their work load much harder, and their careers shorter, the chances for stardom and wealth that are there for other performers have rarely been there for dancers. Before I started watching this show, I had no idea that humans could produce such supreme beauty using only their brilliantly costumed bodies! I had no idea there were people outside Cirque De Soleil who could perform such spectacular feats of strength, elasticity, musicality, and split-second timing. And I never dreamed that anyone who had not experienced a lifetime of training could even come close to dancing at a professional level. Frankly, the idea that a professional dancer would even be willing to attempt some of these feats with a rank amateur still astounds me.

It's no ordinary gig. As the weeks go on, there will be a personal bonding that takes place between partners that will be as genuine as anything they experience in their lives. They will on occasion go to the limits of mind, body, and soul. For them, this experience is about as likely to fade as Wyatt Earp's and Doc Holliday's memory of the gunfight at the OK Corral! Clearly, if they live to be a hundred, they will still reflect on this unique journey of growth, trust, and courage.

Tuesdays are elimination days and they are cruel. This is when the pros and the amateurs will have to face the combined whims of the judges and the television audience. It won't really matter at all how well you danced if America should decide to vote thumbs down on you -- or simply ignore your performance in favor of their favorite celeb -- you will be going home. And the impossible dream will be over.

Personally, I think this part is unnecessary. The rest of the show is so profoundly positive -- I don't appreciate this negative holdover from American Idol. I would rather see ALL the couples dance it out to the last, accumulating points as they go. I also think participants should be required to pass a strength and flexibility test (to avoid the serious injuries) and I don't think they should ever have to prepare more than one dance per week. I would definitely much rather see them do their level best at ONE dance than struggle through two or three half-prepared numbers on show day.

Maybe I'm quibbling here -- but who wouldn't want a great show to be perfect! And here's a thought -- how about a spin-off series -- "Tango With The Stars" that features ONLY the tango?

Dancing With the Stars Results: Did Chaz Bono Survive?

Every week on the Dancing With the Stars results show, you're going in wondering if one of the week’s lowest scorers will get the boot, or if voters will pull a shocker and eliminate someone you'd never expect - and who didn't deserve it.
Last night was pretty much by the book - and/or scores.

Rob Kardashian, Metta World Peace and Nancy Grace posted three of the bottom four scores on Monday, and in turn, comprised the bottom three Tuesday.

"Everybody give a round of applause to Peta – she was awesome!"

"I had a great, great time," he added, and we're so glad to hear it.

Elisabetta Canalis
David Arquette
Rob Kardashian

'Dancing With The Stars' Results

As much as the studio crowd might have been rooting for World Peace, they didn't get it. Basketball star Ron Artest — now known as Metta World Peace — couldn't garner enough votes with his cha-cha and was the first to go on season 13 of "Dancing With the Stars." The field of 12 competing couples was trimmed down to 11, and the L.A. Lakers player and partner Peta Murgatroyd were sent packing.

The first elimination round was action-packed. The professional dancers kicked things off with a sizzling group number set to an amped-up version of Lady Gaga's "Edge of Glory," followed by the gradual, performance-interspersed reveal of the couples named to the bottom three: Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke, Metta and Murgatroyd and later Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus.

The headlining performers for the evening included musician/actor Harry Connick Jr. and self-described party rockers LMFAO. Connick wowed the crowd with his soulful rendition of the titular number from his upcoming Broadway revival, "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever." The expectedly energetic and colorfully dressed LMFAO kept it classy for network TV with a medley of their new single "Sexy and I Know It" and their summer dance club sensation "Party Rock Anthem."

Despite receiving one of the three lowest scores on the first night of competition, Italian TV host and George Clooney ex Elisabetta Canalis and Val Chmerkovskiy were voted through. And the biggest cheers of the night from both the audience and dancers occurred when Chaz Bono and partner Lacey Schwimmer were safe.

David Beckham Cars

English football (soccer) player, David Beckham, has been seen driving a Continental Supersports. Apparently Victoria, his wife, bought it for him late last year.

Engine : 12-cylinder
Horsepower: 621 bhp
Top speed: 200 mph (320 km/h) (limited)

David, and his wife, Victoria Beckham, have been seen in many more cars than the Supersports. They are as follows:
Before: David bought a Porsche Turbo Cabriolet.
After: David ruins a Porsche Turbo Cabriolet.
Soon after purchasing his new Porsche, Beckham got it resprayed matt-black. I think it ruins it, but that's just me...
Not once, but twice, Victoria Beckham's car has been seen being towed away after reportedly having broken down:
note the different signage on the sides of the trucks.

He does have a thing for black cars. This black Rolls-Royce Drophead Phantom has custom black rims as well.

Maurice Sendak Collection

Maurice Sendak chose the Rosenbach Museum & Library in Philadelphia, PA to be the repository for his work in the early 1970s thanks to shared literary and collecting interests. His collection of nearly 10,000 works of art, manuscripts, books and ephemera, has been the subject of many exhibitions at the Rosenbach, seen by visitors of all ages. Sendak once praised Herman Melville’s writings, saying, “There’s a mystery there, a clue, a nut, a bolt, and if I put it together, I find me.” From May 6, 2008, through May 3, 2009, the Rosenbach presented There’s a Mystery There: Sendak on Sendak. This major retrospective of over 130 pieces pulled from the museum’s vast Sendak collection—the biggest collection of Sendakiana in the world—is the largest and most ambitious exhibition of Sendak’s work ever created and is now a traveling exhibition. It features original artwork, rare sketches, never-before-seen working materials, and exclusive interview footage. The exhibition draws on a total of over 300 objects, providing a unique experience with each set of illustrations.
Exhibition highlights include the following:
  • Original color artwork from books such as Where the Wild Things Are, In the Night Kitchen, The Nutshell Library, Outside Over There, and Brundibar.
  • “Dummy” books filled with lively preliminary sketches for titles like The Sign on Rosie’s Door, Pierre, and Higglety, Pigglety, Pop!
  • Never-before-seen working materials, such as newspaper clippings that inspired Sendak, family portraits, photographs of child models and other ephemera.
  • Rare sketches for unpublished editions of stories such as Tolkien’s The Hobbit and Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw, and other illustrating projects.
  • Unique materials from the Rosenbach collection that relate to Sendak’s work, including an 1853 edition of the tales of the Brothers Grimm, sketches by William Blake, and Herman Melville’s bookcase.
  • Stories told by the illustrator himself on topics like Alice in Wonderland, his struggle to illustrate his favorite novels, hilarious stories of Brooklyn, and the way his work helps him exorcise childhood traumas.

The Cadillac Escalade is a full-size luxury sport utility vehicle (SUV) sold by the General Motors luxury brand, Cadillac. It was the division's first major entry into the popular SUV market. The Escalade was introduced for the 1999 model year in response to German and Japanese competitors and to Ford's 1998 release of the Lincoln Navigator. The Escalade project went into production only ten months after it was approved. The Escalade is built in Arlington, Texas, USA. The name Escalade refers to a siege warfare tactic of scaling defensive walls or ramparts with the aid of ladders or siege towers.

The Escalade was originally based on the GMC Yukon Denali, but was redesigned for the 2002 model year to make its appearance fall more in line with Cadillac's new design theme. Today, the Escalade and Escalade EXT pickup are two of only three Cadillac vehicles made outside of the United States. Both the Escalade ESV (Based on the Chevrolet Suburban) and Escalade EXT (based on the Avalanche sport utility truck) were made in Silao, Mexico, before the 2006 redesign; the new Escalade ESV is sourced from Arlington, Texas. The Escalade competes with the Range Rover Sport, Infiniti QX56, Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, Lexus LX, Toyota Land Cruiser, Land Rover LR3 and Lincoln Navigator.

The introduction of the Lincoln Navigator in the 1998 model year necessitated that General Motors be able to compete in the burgeoning American market for full-size luxury-type trucks. This generation was only a five-seat SUV. The first Escalade was a largely unsuccessful endeavor from the start. Fearing the growing hegemony of the Lincoln Navigator, the Escalade was rushed through the design process to reach dealers quickly. Essentially little more than a badge-engineered GMC Yukon Denali, the SUV's aesthetics were similar to the Denali and the final vehicle was smaller than the Navigator. The Escalade's under were borrowed from the Denali line, with the GMC logos on the center caps replaced with Cadillac's crest. The Escalade also used the same 5.7 L Vortec 5700 V8 at 255 hp (190 kW), which was underpowered compared to the Navigator's 300 hp (220 kW) and 365 lb·ft (495 N·m) 5.4 Liter InTech V-8. All first-generation Escalades featured Autotrac selectable 4x4. The interior featured all leather seats with the Escalade logo sprinkled all over the car. It also had a Bose surround system–a first for SUVs. The Escalade also used a slightly different gauge cluster from the standard Tahoes/Yukons. The Escalade gauges featured white needles instead of the standard orange and the speedometer reads to 120 mph.
According to information from the Highway Loss Data Institute, the Cadillac Escalade is the most stolen vehicle in the U.S.

Thursday at 10/9c, ABC’s Private Practice resumes its fourth season and in doing so hopefully sheds light on where things stand between Addison and Sam, whose never too-steady romance is being tested by her desire to have a baby and his preference to stand pat as not just a dad but a granddad. TVLine got a hold of Kate Walsh as she toured Paris, partly for pleasure but also for business, as she continues to boast about her Boyfriend (as in the fragrance). Though the Private Practice beauty was cheeky about revealing some of what’s to come, she expertly teased the season finale ahead –- and how one Benjamin Bratt just might rock Addison’s world.
TVLINE | How was your Boyfriend meeting with Sephora’s Paris office?
How did you know…?! Are you watching me on Twitter? Watching my every move?
TVLINE | Mayyybe…. In general, how are things going as a purveyor of perfume?
As a “Fragrance Mogul in Training”? I’m enjoying it, I’m very excited about it. And the meeting went very well, thank you. This is the capital of fragrances, so….
TVLINE | Now you’ll be pitching to [Private Practice boss] Shonda Rhimes that Oceanside Wellness get transplanted to the Rive Gauche?
I don’t think that’s so big a stretch, do you?
TVLINE | Do you feel like sufficient drama has come Addison’s way this season?
Oh yeah – and there’s more to come, baby! There’s a lot that’s packed into these last four episodes. You’re going to want to tune into every minute, because if you turn away, you’re going to miss something pivotal.
TVLINE | I was just rewatching the scene where Naomi (played by Audra McDonald) blasts Addison, saying, “You suck at relationships!”  
It’s rare to get such honest moments between women.

The scene where she verbally bitch-slaps me? I was like, “Bring it!” And she was right! Oh, Audra…. I will miss her.
TVLINE | How has it been for you, bracing for her departure?
I don’t like it. I don’t think she’s gone for good – she’ll make visits – but it’s hard. It’s hard. It’s four years we’ve been together.
TVLINE | Will the story moving forward be about Addison realizing that Sam isn’t the one, or Sam coming around to her way of thinking?
How can I tell you that? You know about the contracts we sign and how they involve blood! I will be in fear of my life. There’ll be no more Twitter, no more Boyfriend, no more Private Practice…. [Laughs]
TVLINE | OK, let’s talk about Charlotte and Cooper’s wedding day. Does the nature of the occasion weigh on Addison or any of her friends?
The wedding is really awesome, and lots of things occur because of it – not only for Addison but also for other people. But yes, there might be a tiny violin playing for her!
Ask Ausiello: Why Isn’t Private Practice‘s Addison Sitting with Sam at the Wedding?
TVLINE | Do you like that Shonda keeps Addison flawed? A vainer actress might say, “Why can’t my character be more revered?”
“Why can’t I save the world?” I do like it. I came on [at Grey's Anatomy] as the “Wicked Witch of the West,” so I like that she’s constantly screwing up, and human, and struggling. By the way? Anybody who has that great a shoe collection deserves to be taken down a few notches.
TVLINE | I get a lot of mail asking about Addison and Sam maybe making a baby, Addison ever having any child…. But I wonder: Is Private Practice designed to be about Addison as a mother? Or is this more about a strong woman’s pursuit of all the things that she wants, but not always getting them?
I think it’s a bit of both. There’s not a real story being told out there for not getting everything you want – we’re constantly pitched, “You can have it all, all the time!” And while the reality is you can have a lot of it, it’s hard, and there is sacrifice. I love that Addison has a lot of advantages and privileges but she’s also deeply flawed and she doesn’t get to have everything. We’ve been talking about that one [viable] egg she’s got for four years now, but that’s a very real issue she struggles with, and it’s still an interesting story. What do you do when you want a child in your forties and you’re with somebody that you’re pretty happy with, but they don’t want to have a kid because they already have one and, in fact, have a grandkid? These are big-girl problems, and I love that Shonda and the writers take on these issues. That’s what’s made the show particularly strong this season.
TVLINE | Given the buzz that Grey’s Anatomy‘s Derek and Meredith might start a family soon, I hope one beat that Shonda plays is having that news makes its way to Santa Monica, and….
Right. Sure, why not? Put a little more salt in the wound! [Laughs]

TVLINE | What can you say about the season finale (airing May 19)?
I love it. I don’t know how to describe it except to say it’s like a great closing chapter in Part 1 of a massive, three-part tome. It’s a big closing-up of certain things, and then a total unraveling of others and “Wait until you see Part 2!” So much happens.
TVLINE | Do you sometimes leaf through a script and remark to yourself, “I can’t believe Shonda went there“?
I’m always like that. Because they’ll say they’re thinking about one thing, and by the time she gets her hands on it it’s different — and even better — than the pitches.
TVLINE | But have you ever read something and immediately grabbed the phone to bellow at Shonda, or gave her a jab in the arm in the hall?
We’ve been in a “relationship” now for seven years, so…. We’ve debated before, I’m not going to lie. But it’s fantastic. When I call her or email her, it’s 99.9 percent, “Yahoo, you’re amazing! There’s a reason why you’re a goddess!” And then there are a couple times where I’m like, “Wait a second, hold on, what?”
TVLINE | Tell us about Benjamin Bratt joining the cast in the season finale.
Ohhhh…. He’s a really lovely person, he’s very kind, and he’s very handsome.
TVLINE | And he is playing….?
I can’t tell you that. He literally doesn’t even have a name! I don’t know who he is, what he’s doing. All I can tell you is he shows up. That’s literally all I can tell you.
TVLINE | OK, what about this: Facial hair or no facial hair?
[Laughs] You’ll have to tune in! Listen, there were discussions about that, and decisions were made. Decisions were made about facial hair.
TVLINE | We were talking at the office about Bratt coming on board, and we reckon he’s gotta be for you.
Well, it would be nice if something worked out for Addison personally!
Judging by the brand-new ABC photo seen here, we surmise things just might!
