This aptly titled episode, The Parents, is all about our two starlets (Ivy and Karen) meddling elders. Bernadette Peters, Ivy’s mom, returns to Smash in this episode to play Gladys (Marilyn’s mother) in Bombshell. Everyone is waiting for fireworks – the negative kind – between Ivy and her mom but their fake niceness is weirding […]

Picture it: February 19, 2013 – Washington Dulles International Airport – 3:00pm. I walk into the terminal to check in for my United airlines flight and five people ahead of me in […]
Hollywood bigwigs make it sound so dirty, but is being labeled a “cult hit” in the television and movie industry really all that bad? No in the slightest. In fact, productions who get branded with the title should feel honored.
