Kristen Johnston - A variety of stars were photographed as they arrived for the 40th Anniversary Gracies Awards which honor programming made for women, by women and about women at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California, United States - Tuesday 19th May 2015
Actress Kristen Johnston is winning her battle against a rare autoimmune disorder after undergoing intense hospital treatment last Christmas (Dec13).
The 3rd Rock From the Sun star went public with her diagnosis of lupus myelitis, which causes severe muscle weakness, in December (13) after she struggled to even lift her head and had to use a wheelchair to help her get around.
She completed chemotherapy, and had a steroid and intravenous immunoglobulin (Ivig) blood drip, and the treatment helped her gradually bounce back.

Meet the 'Modern Family' cast that the producers had originally wanted. We're pleased they didn't get their own way, because we can't imagine a better lineup than the one they have!
We can’t imagine a more perfect cast that the one that Modern Family already has. Every single of one of them has made the roles their own, almost like they were written with them in mind. So you’ll be surprised to hear that hardly any of them were the first choice for the parts! But who did the producers have lined up before the perfect cast finally came together?
Craig T. Nelson was first choice to play Modern Family patriarch Jay Pritchett
Family patriarch Jay Pritchett was originally pegged to be played by Emmy Award winner Craig T. Nelson. Best known for his role as Hayden Fox in Coach and as the voice of Mr. Incredible in the 2004 animated film The Incredibles, producers originally approached Nelson although his pay expectations were too high. Ed O’Neill, who the role eventually went to (and who just IS Jay) explained, “When I read [the script] I thought, ‘Oh boy, this is pretty good.’ And I called my managed and he said, ‘Well, they’re out to Craig T. Nelson.’” We’re grateful that they couldn’t afford Nelson because no-one plays grumpy good guy Jay Pritchard quite like Ed O’Neill. We're also sure that Nelson is kicking himself since Sofia Vergara could have been his onscreen wife! We wonder if he'd known that to begin with it would have made a difference?
Actress Kristen Johnston has been diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disorder which has left her struggling to walk.
The 3rd Rock From the Sun star has spent months trying to discover the cause of severe muscle weakness which has affected her mobility, and after visiting a number of different doctors, she was finally diagnosed with "lupus myelitis".
Johnston took to her Facebook.com page on Tuesday (17Dec13) to tell her followers about her health crisis, writing, "I've put this off as long as possible, but it's time for me to be upfront with you about something that's been going on with me...

Stacey and Goody are two vampires cursed to remain young and beautiful forever after being bitten and changed in the 19th Century. Whilst they have dated numerous men in the past, they still prove to be putty in the hands of love when Stacey falls for the son of the notorious vampire hunter Dr Van Helsing. Joey Van Helsing is equally as taken with her as she is with him, however his father immediately knows Stacey's secret and tries to warn Joey but to no avail. He gets together an angry mob of hunters who threaten to expose the coffin-lounging lady vamps to the sunlight they hate so much - always being slaves to the night when they spend their time partying. When Goody meets her dream man from years ago, both girls are faced with a choice: eternal immortality or love.
This side-splitting Rom Com is a brilliantly light-hearted take on the classic vampire; the perfect comic relief after the serious subject matter of modern vamp stories 'Twilight', 'True Blood' and 'Vampire Diaries'. It has been directed and written by Amy Heckerling; the writer of high-school parody series 'Clueless' and movies 'Loser' and 'Look Who's Talking' and has the same hilarious style of humour that has captured audiences since the '90s. 'Vamps' is set for release on November 2nd 2012 in the USA.
Starring: Alicia Silverstone, Krysten Ritter, Richard Lewis, Sigourney Weaver, Wallace Shawn, Justin Kirk, Malcolm McDowell, Zak Orth, Marilu Henner, Scott Thomson, Todd Barry, Kristen Johnston, Natalie Gal, Meredith Scott Lynn, Joel Michaely and Dan Stevens.
Actress Kristen Johnson has opened up about her exploding stomach medical crisis in a new book, which details her past battles with drugs and alcohol.
The former 3rd Rock From the Sun star was appearing on London's West End stage in 2006 when years of abuse caught up with the actress and left her in so much pain she thought she would die.
Johnson chronicles the experience in new tome Guts and tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "Imagine an overweight woman jumping up and down on your stomach... for hours! I've never had children, but I think it's the worst pain a human can experience and not die."
The actress was diagnosed with acute peritonitis.

Christmas came late for a homeless man in New York City last week (ends06Jan12) when actress Kristen Johnston gifted him a new winter jacket and a wad of cash.
The generous former 3rd Rock From The Sun star spotted the unnamed guy shivering in the Manhattan street and offered to buy him something to keep him warm.
She then dashed into a nearby store, according to PerezHilton.com, and picked him up a silver bubble jacket.
Photos that appeared on the blogger's site appear to show Johnston making sure her purchase fit the man.

Actress Kristen Johnston had Botox injected in her forehead because an overdeveloped muscle constantly made her look "enraged".
The 3rd Rock from the Sun star had the procedure to correct the problem but insists she's now done with cosmetic surgery because she thinks its sexy to age naturally.
She says, "I've had one shot. That's it. Because I actually have a muscle right here that overdevelops. I think wrinkles are hot.
"I think they are sexy, I mean, not like big, deep grooves. I love laugh lines. Anyway, I (only) got that done because it makes me look enraged."

These are not preliminary selections for the inaugural class of an as-yet-unfounded Hollywood Hall of Shame. They are instead the most recent cinematic abominations to have been released in the early weeks of the new year, dating back to 2005. My colleagues and I regularly joke that if a studio hopes to bury a movie in the cold, efficient style of the mob hiding Jimmy Hoffa, they release it in early January (late August is a suitable alternative). And I've long believed if an intelligent studio sought a surefire hit, they'd counter-program a halfway decent film against the post-holiday garbage, then sit back and watch the box-office receipts pour in.

It's a shame Mike Myers didn't invent Austin Powers during his "SaturdayNight Live" tenure. The occasionally funny sketch bits he stringsweakly together with about six minutes of plot in his "Austin Powers"James Bond spoofs might have played well as short gags in a recurring "SNL"routine.
Imagine, if you will, a skit in which Dr. Evil (Myers'mock-Blofeld) goes on "Jerry Springer" to confront his disgruntledson, who (god forbid!) has no ambition to take over the world. Or an episodehosted by the unbelievably beautiful yet seemingly accessible Heather Graham,in which she dons Urusla Andress' bikini from "Dr. No" and ultra-tossablehair extensions to play a CIA sexpot named Felicity Shagwell opposite Myers'ribald, randy, chest toupee- and cravat-wearing super-spy.

"The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas" is one unapologetic goofball of a movie. It makes no pretense of brains or decorum. It's dumb, screwy and proud. Yabba dabba doo!
A prequel to 1994's live-action "Flintstones" feature, it stars Mark Addy from "The Full Monty" as Fred and Stephen Baldwin's Barney (playing him dumb as a box of rocks and obviously enjoying it no end) in their younger days when they were courting Wilma and Betty (Kristen Johnston and Jane Krakowski).
The only thing really resembling plot revolves around the fact that Wilma is a down-to-earth debutante who would rather go bowling than to a fancy dress ball -- an attitude greeted with much high-hattedness when she brings Fred around to meet her parents.
