Former Sopranos Star Lorraine Bracco: James Gandolfini's Death Was a Wake-Up Call

Originally posted 04/03/2015 09:45AM

Motivated by personal tragedy, former Sopranos star Lorraine Bracco turned her life around with diet and exercise.

In her new self-help book, To the Fullest: The Clean Up Your Act Plan to Lose Weight, Rejuvenate and Be the Best You Can Be, Bracco, 60, recalls how James Gandolfini's untimely death from a heart attack in 2013 was a wake-up call.

The death of her parents, too, weighed heavily on the actress; in 2011, they died within nine days of each other. (Bracco, who played Dr. Jennifer Melfi on The Sopranos, writes in To the Fullest that Dominic Chianese, who played Uncle Junior in the HBO mob drama, sang at their funerals.)

Serena & Venus: TV Stars

Originally posted 05/02/2005 06:00AM

Tennis stars Serena and Venus Williams are joining Nick & Jessica and Britney & Kevin in the reality TV business. The sisters are filming their lives for an upcoming ABC Family network show to air in July. "Nothing's really been off limits," Serena told us at the 10th Anniversary gala of the D.C. Recreation Wish List Committee, "(except) the bathroom, of course." We'll see the practical joker side of Serena, "who constantly turned on my (car) seat warmer in Florida," says Venus. And possibly Venus's angry side: "I said something about someone. I was really mad at the person, and I made a threat. I wish I hadn't said that, but maybe it will be cut on the editing room floor." Hope not.
