15 Celebrities Who Haven't Aged Well
Everyone grows older, but some people do it better than others. Partying too hard, gaining weight, and genetics often contribute to what a person looks like as they age.

Some age very well (Christie Brinkley, we're talking to you) - others not so much.

Ten years ago Lindsay Lohan was a beautiful 18-year-old with a promising career ahead of her. An addiction to drugs and alcohol changed all that. She lost a large amount of weight, dyed her hair blonde, dyed it back to red, caused trouble on set, and went to rehab on several occasions.

Lohan's abusive lifestyle has definitely affected her...

Since Day One, Blood vs Water has been a tale of two tribes heading in opposite directions. Coyopa couldn’t win a challenge, and they weren’t getting along.

'The Middle' Season 6, Episode 4 Review: Happy 20-Somethingth Anniversary

October 23rd, 2014 10:50am EDT
The Middle
“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” These words of wisdom popularized by W.E. Hickson are a constant source of inspiration, or the complete opposite of inspiration, for the Heck family. “The Table” was an emblematic episode demonstrating how much everyone in this family believes that it is never worth trying but they ultimate make do with the beaten-down lot they have in a way that is really all about trying anyway. Except for Sue. Sue never hears the same message about giving up from the universe that her parents hear.

The funny thing about not trying when it comes to Fra...

6 Powerful Scenes From Duke Porn Star Inspired 'Law & Order SVU'
"SVU’s" “Porn Stars Requiem” episode picks up where the writers left off: on a never-ending loop of ripped from the headlines story lines. Suddenly the vision of a newbie writer slaving over an original sex-based trauma tale to present to the exec producers comes to mind, only to find it in the trash alongside “Law & Order L.A.” But I digress; this week’s installment is inspired by Duke porn star Belle Knox, a staunch defender of using porn to pay her college tuition, and the recent spike in college sexual assaults. In SVU’s case the coed/porn star attends Hudson University and is the victi...

'American Horror Story Freak Show' Recap: Rundown On 'Edward Mor
Can anyone decipher the main plot of Freak Show? Is it Elsa Mars’ quest for fame and the horrors she’ll commit to get it? Is it about Dot and Bette skirting the law, joining a freak show, and fighting each other? Or maybe it’s about the tough life of Jimmy, who was born into a world he despises? Or is it about a crazy clown, his rich best friend, and the town they’re terrorizing? There are so many major plots that they all start to feel insignificant as the episodes go on, especially since there’s a new threat introduced in every episode. It could be the result of having too many beloved ac...
