Christa Miller, 48, empties out her purse for Us.
The star of Cougar Town (TBS Tuesdays, 10 P.M.) says her Tod’s D-Styling tote enhances any outfit. “I like to carry a nice bag because then I can wear t-shirts and jeans all the time!” says mom to Charlotte 12, Will, 10, and Henry, 6 (with producer husband Bill Lawrence). So what’s she packing inside?
“I love Goody’s Spin Pins. They’re super cheap and look like corkscrews. You just gather your hair and screw them into a bun.”
“I always have two pairs of glasses: geeky black Warby Parker frames and Wayfarer Ray Bans. Those are key!”
“I’m also a photographer. I usually carry a big camera with me but if I’m running around, my little Canon Powershot is fantastic.”
“Courtney Cox got me this Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. She wears it too! If one of us finds a product we love, we buy it for the other.”
“Right mow, my favorite book is Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. It’s awesome. Crazy-good!”
Josh Hopkins will be on The Client List this Sunday, April 21st. You can watch a video clip of his appearance at EW.com here.
Cougar Town‘s Josh Hopkins is heading on down to Texas, and he’s bringing his oh-so-charming good looks with him.
In an exclusive clip from this coming Sunday’s Client List, Hopkins plays one of Riley’s new clients — one who, in a twist, doles out a massage instead of receiving one. But that doesn’t mean that he’s only a giver. In fact, Hopkins knows exactly what he wants in return for his handiwork. And when he mentions that what he wants is for Riley to meet him at his hotel room later, he makes it clear that he has sexytimes — something she doesn’t sell — on the brain and that he’s willing to reach into his deep pockets to make things happen. Hopkins’ character offers $50,000 for a night with the mother of two (and girlfriend of one), and she doesn’t exactly say no.
This Tuesday night, TBS’ Cougar Townputs a cork on Season 4 with a double-helping of episodes kicking off at 10/9c and setting the stage for romance, finally, for Jules’ son Travis and her wild child sidekick Laurie.
As last week’s Breakfast Club-by episode closed, the longtime platonic pals realize “they’re on the same page. They now know that they like each other,” Dan Byrd tells TVLine. “But how do they transition their relationship from what it’s been their entire lives into something different? As well all know, that is no easy task a lot of times.”
The first step, of course is The First Date, but even that proves problematic for the potential lovebirds. “I don’t want to give too many specifics and ‘mess up the journey’ for people, but one of the things they do is sit and try to watch a movie together, with the idea that maybe things will get romantic,” Byrd previews, “but they end up just sitting and watching the movie!”
The other threshold to cross is The First Kiss, which gives Travis, in particular, some anxiety. As Byrd explains, “Laurie is kind of at the wheel, in that she is the older, more experienced one, so Travis tries to man up and take charge of the situation. But he’s definitely scrambling.”
For four seasons, COUGAR TOWN viewers have witnessed the epic bromance between Andy and Bobby, and in tonight’s brand new episode, “Flirting with Time,” we’ll get to see their first meeting…ever.
“There’s a flashback and his character literally falls into my arms and it’s love at first sight,” Brian Van Holt (Bobby) told me about his character’s “meet-cute” with his (platonic) soul mate, Andy.
But they aren’t the only characters getting the flashback treatment — fans will get to see how all of the characters met for the first time, and some of them were drastically different back in the day.
“I love Courteney [Cox (Jules)]‘s character,” Van Holt said. “I wish [Jules of the present day] was more like her character back in the flashback. Those characters are so much fun to play. That’s why I love to play Bobby — you get to play a complete idiot and get paid for it. The flashback is great. I loved getting to wear my mullet and be over the top. It’s fun to be over the top.”
#4.15 – “Have Love Will Travel” – After discovering that Chick (guest star Ken Jenkins) has health issues, the gang decides to take him to Hollywood. Once there, they’ll stop at nothing to arrange for him to spend an evening with one his favorite stars, Tippi Hedren. Meanwhile, Laurie and Travis try carefully to set up the perfect first kiss. And Andy is upset to discover that no one recognizes him as Latino.
