I had high hopes for the second season of Gotham — maybe that was my downfall. The show struggled to find its tone in season one, but a couple episodes into season two, it had finally settled for a kooky, Batman Forever feel.

Hilary Rhoda's wedding dress wasn't over the top: it was striking and bold — a sleek column gown by Carolina Herrera that perfectly flattered her figure. This design was all about the details, including a sparkling green plunging neckline and a jeweled halter that complemented the supermodel's Chopard jewels.

ON the hit show, The Blacklist, Megan Boone plays Elizabeth ‘Liz’ Keen, an FBI agent withan unexplained past and an equally unexplained relationship with reformed criminal mastermind Raymond Reddington (James Spader), who may or may not be her father.
Hurricane Joaquin battered the Bahamas early Friday and from his perch on the International Space Station astronaut Scott Kelly was witness to the magnitude of the huge storm. Kelly captured this early morning image before the storm hit the Atlantic archipelago with maximum sustained winds of around 140 miles per hour. There was, in her cupboard, a Golden Cap, with a...
