Busy Philipps on ABC’s Treatment of “Cougar Town”

Busy Philipps won’t be shedding any tears if ABC cancels Cougar Town.

She doesn’t want the show to end, but is hopeful the fan-favorite series will find a home on TBS if Courteney Cox and the gang do get the boot.

And it’s safe to say that Philipps is no fan of how ABC has treated Cougar Town

 “It has not been fun to feel like the ugly stepsister of the network,” Philipps told us today at Paul Frank’s Mommy & Me celebration at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

“They moved us around, they took us off the air for months,” she continued. “I do feel a little disappointed in how they’ve treated the show. If TBS is willing to launch the show in a real great way and we would actually have like billboards and commercials, that would be really cool.”

Producers have been talking to TBS about a two-season pickup if ABC gives them the boot, according to Deadline.

Philipps says she’s “really excited about the possibility” of switching networks. “I feel like if it really happens it’s kind of going to be like best case scenario for all of us,” she said.

Hopefully the rest of the cast is as gung-ho about the move as Philipps is. “The terms of the matter are we don’t have a choice,” she laughed. “Gung-ho or not, get on the train!”

A rep for ABC declined to comment for this story.

Courteney Cox, Whitney Port, Jen Garner Selling Their Clothes for Charity

Cities like NYC and Austin, TX are known for their lust-worthy consignment boutiques, but for those who don’t live in or near a fashionable metropolitan area can now get the same experience online.

Enter TheRealReal.com, which boasts an extensive selection of pre-owned high-priced clothing, accessories and shoes, which jam-packed loosest can no longer hold.

“We comb the most fashionable closets around to give our members insider access to the world’s best previously-owned jewelry, accessories, and clothing — from Hermes and Chanel to Balenciaga and Lanvin,” a rep for The Real Real tells Us Weekly.

Better yet, The Real Real also has the A-lister connection, and through it delivers celebs’ most-loved wardrobe staples right to fashionistas’ doors.

“We’ve had Courteney CoxJen Garner, Whitney Port all donate their clothes through The Real Real with proceeds going to charity,” a rep for the site tells Us. “We’re also in talks with many celebrities to donate clothes with portions to their causes.”

Another perk: the regular sales are curated by some of the fashion industry’s most highly regarded stylists like Jeanne Yang (Katie Holmes‘ partner of the clothing line Holmes & Yang) and Kate Bosworth‘s pro and StyleMint collaborator, Cher Coulter.

Update on Cougar Town’s Move to TBS

I hear that the deal eyed by both sides is for a two-season pickup by TBS, 15 episodes each, which would allow for Cougar Town to be sold in syndication. Negotiations are progressing and if they come to fruition, an announcement could come as soon as early next week.

Cougar Town May Relocate to TBS

Cougar Town is reportedly eyeing a fallback plan in the event ABC does the wrong thing and cancels it.

According to our sister site Deadline.com, TBS has been in preliminary talks with ABC Studios about picking up the wine-soaked comedy for a fourth season should ABC put a cork in it.

A rep for TBS’ parent, Turner Entertainment Networks, would neither confirm nor deny the buzz, saying only, “Should the show become available, TEN looks at all opportunities presented to us that fit our brand.”

Of course, this will all be a moot point if ABC renews Cougar Town, which has managed to maintain a ratings pulse (albeit a weak one) despite a delayed third season and a less-than-compatible Last Man Standing lead-in.
