Get Ready for the Sopranos
Just when we feared we'd never see Tony and Carmela again, we get word that production has started on season six of The Sopranos. Shrink Jennifer Melfi, a.k.a., Lorraine Bracco, told us at a fundraiser for Publicolor – a not-for-profit organization that paints inner-city public schools and neglected community facilities – that the cast recently had their first table reading: "We were ready for it!" Us, too, but – alas – Bracco won't spill any details, so we'll either have to sneak onto the set (filming will "probably go through Christmas") or wait till new episodes hit HBO in 2006. Fuggedabout it!
