Emmy Nominations: PEOPLE TV Critic's Take

Originally posted 09/22/2012 06:40PM

If you ask why I am crying, it's because Madeleine Stowe, star of ABC's Revenge, is not among the Emmy nominees. In fact, I am crying just as she would: My eyes are ringed with big, ready-to-drop tears of wrath and sorrow.

Otherwise, the latest batch of nominees is pretty satisfying.

It's great to see Lena Dunham and her fantastic HBO comedy Girls up for best actress and show. (But nothing for the supporting cast?) Dunham, who plays a smart, funny, self-absorbed young writer, is running against her comic antithesis: Zooey Deschanel of FOX's New Girl, on which she plays (and plays very well) a cupcake.

Jennifer Jason Leigh Will Play Emily Thorne's Mom on Revenge

Originally posted 07/20/2012 10:45AM

Emmy snub aside, there's exciting news for fans of ABC's Revenge: Jennifer Jason Leigh is joining the cast for the show's sophomore season.

Leigh, 50, who shot to fame in 1982's Fast Times at Ridgemont High, landed the recurring role of Emily Thorne's mother on the Hamptons-set melodrama, EW.com reports.

The role was teased in the show's May finale, when it was revealed that Emily VanCamp's character still had a very special family tie after all. (And this means the Hamptons's reigning queen Victoria Grayson, played by Madeleine Stowe, has some competition ... assuming she's still alive next season.)

ABC Bets on Devilish Digs, Hayden Panettiere For Fall

The upfront media caravan, loaded with cameras, camels and expectations, moved onto ABC's presentation in Manhattan Tuesday afternoon.

The network heads into fall with several concerns: Dancing with the Stars has been registering fewer happy feet in the ratings – Jimmy Kimmel, in his annual standup appearance, suggested the only way you'll see stars on the show is if you bang your head – and Desperate Housewives, a long-running signature hit, just ended Sunday.

Well, Paul Lee, president of the ABC Entertainment Group, quickly addressed those points on Tuesday afternoon:

Emily VanCamp Doesn't Want to Date a Stoner

Originally posted 05/06/2012 11:00AM

On Revenge, Emily VanCamp's character, Emily Thorne, is involved with a preppy, wealthy polo-player. But what's her real-life type?

"I'll tell you one thing I don't want," the actress tells Lucky for its June issue (out May 8). "A guy who sits around and plays video games and smokes pot."

VanCamp does reveal she's attracted to a paternal kind of guy. "I think women look for that quality in a man of being a good dad whether they're immediately wanting to be a parent or not," she says. "It's important to me that a man is good at taking care of people."

Revenge Star Christa Allen: Get Ready for 'Explosive Scenes'

Originally posted 04/18/2012 02:00PM

Fans are not the only ones eager to find out what happens on Revenge – the stars of the juicy drama get just as excited.

"So much can happen in an episode. At this point I've resorted to flipping to the very last scene the minute I get the script to see where [my character Charlotte Grayson] is going to end up," actress Christa Allen told PEOPLE recently while on break from filming.

Allen admits the nature of the primetime soap opera means that any character could "fly off the handle and become the enemy of any other character," but she calls the cast a "family."

"I don't know how I would do it without them," she said. "Every single person on the cast just has so much love for one another."

She may be headed for the altar on her hit show Revenge, but Emily VanCamp, who plays Emily Thorne (and swears she is nothing like her character), is still looking for "the one" in real life.

Most recently connected to Vampire Diaries star Joseph Morgan, VanCamp tells Canada's Flare magazine distance is to blame for their breakup.

"I'm working non-stop in L.A., he's working in Atlanta. It kind of makes it impossible," she says in the March cover story. "It doesn't take away from the love that two people have, and I think he's extraordinary."

Madeleine Stowe Finds Faith Moving Dead Bodies in Haiti

Originally posted 01/14/2012 10:00AM

We're nearing the end of our trip and we head for Fr. Rick's and the St. Luke team's weekly visit to the General Hospital morgue.

We pull up and Fr. Rick, beside me, bows his head and clenches his eyes tightly in anticipation for a job he will never be used to. We're about to pull out as many bodies from the morgue's lockers as we can possibly carry in three trucks.

It's a devotion the team performs because of their belief in all human dignity – where the dead are lost or forgotten with no one to claim them, Rick and his men retrieve their broken bodies and give them a proper burial.

After the 20 minute drive from the airport, we drop off our bags at Fr. Rick's permanent home. He sleeps in a small, spare room on the 41-acre compound where the finest pediatric hospital in Haiti stands along with the Academy for Peace and Justice (the country's first free high school), and other extensive health, trade and educational programs.

There's even a bakery that makes pasta and bread, feeding thousands of children in St. Luke schools throughout Port Au Prince.   

In mere minutes, we pile back into the truck and drive to a cathedral in ruins where 40 families dwell, homeless, to drop off rice.
