Next week, Suzanne Somers — hot-panted sitcom star turned “scientist” — will release her 22nd book: Bombshell, Explosive Medical Secrets That Will Redefine Aging. The Three’s Company and Step by Step star began her second career as a health-advice-touting licensing juggernaut 21 years ago with her endorsement of the Thighmaster; since then, she has been an unstoppable (and real doctors have tried!) hawker of diet books, jewelry, fashion, nutritional supplements, cancer cures, and now a guide to reversing the aging process through the simple fix of taking massive doses of synthetic hormones and ingesting 60 vitamins a day. How did Somers go from enacting bawdy mix-ups at the Regal Beagle to an author with nearly 10 million books in print?

But in the wake of Biden’s … [Read more...] about Preet Bharara Navigates the Post-Trump Podcast Boom
Jodie Foster and Rosemarie DeWitt. Photo: Getty Images Spoilers ahead for the “Arkangel” episode of Black Mirror. Jodie Foster didn’t choose which sci-fi horror story she’d direct for the fourth season of Black Mirror. But after helming episodes of House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black, as well as films like Money Monster and The Beaver, Foster wound up with one that she calls “the perfect movie for me,” a story that explores the way “technology reflects our own psychology” and compels her to think of her “fraught” relationship with her mother, Evelyn Ella Almond, who was her longtime manager. In “Arkangel,” a single mother turns to technology to keep her child safe. She implants a tracking device in her daughter’s brain, which allows her to see and experience everything her child is seeing and experiencing. Played by Rosemarie DeWitt (Rachel Getting Married, United States of Tara), the mother … [Read more...] about Jodie Foster and Rosemarie DeWitt on
