An Interview with Empire Stylist Paolo Nieddu On Evolving the Lyon Family Wardrobe

Empire’s debut season frequently featured its star player Cookie Lyon in furs, mammal prints and flashy post-prison vintage.

Less Rage, More Reflection: An Interview With Lisa Lampanelli 

Lisa Lampanelli has a new comedy special, and it’s less about fucking black guys—a big part of Lampanelli’s schtick—and more about her personal struggles: Turning 50, getting a divorce, living through both bariatric surgery and taking up yoga.

A Chat with the Botched Doctors On the Alluring Sideshow of Hack Jobs

The first time I watched Botched, it was with equal levels of shock and shameful fascination. The premiere episode featured a woman with a lumpy uni-boob.

Veep's Timothy Simons: Jonah Is Living the White Male American Dream

Tune into HBO’s political comedy Veep and you’ll find that there are few—if any—heroes. Set in in Washington, D.C. and, more specifically, the offices of Vice President Selina Meyer (played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus), the show’s cast of characters are as cut-throat as they are inept. But even in this world of selfish—and… »4/09/15 2:50pm4/09/15 2:50pm
