Jesse Metcalfe Jordana Brewster Charlene Tilton Larry Hagman Patrick Duffy Eva Longoria Rob Morrow Maura Tierney Eamonn Walker Nadine Coyle

The up-and-coming actress Cara Santana has accepted a marriage proposal from her boyfriend Jesse Metcalfe, according to a report from the UK's Daily Mail today (January 17, 2012). The pair have been dating since 2009 but Jesse's publicist declined to comment on his private life. A source is quoted as saying that they have been living together for three years.

According to the report, Jesse posted a picture online of himself and Cara about to board a plane to L.A. for a press weekend. Metcalfe is currently starring as Christopher Ewing in an updated version of Dallas. The new version will also feature Jordana Brewster, Charlene Tilton, Larry Hagman and Patrick Duffy. Jesse previously played the role of Eva Longoria's character's pool boy in Desperate Housewives. Last year, he told reporters that he wanted to return to the show to reprise the role before the end of its final season. Cara, meanwhile, features in the TV series The Whole Truth, with Rob Morrow, Maura Tierney and Eamonn Walker.

This is not Jesse Metcalfe's first high-profile relationship. Between 2006 and 2008 he dated the Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle. Troubles in their relationship were widely publicised and Jesse also entered rehab for alcohol addiction for some of the time that they were together. They eventually split in 2008.

Tierney Jokes About Gummy Bear Boobs


Maura Tierney

Former E.R. star Maura Tierney is laughing through her breast cancer battle, insisting her new boobs feel like Gummy Bears.

The actress has undergone breast reconstruction surgery - and she's more than happy with the results.

Speaking out about the work she has had done for the first time, Tierney tells U.S. talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, "I had to get reconstruction done and there are different kinds of breast implants these days. I don't know if you know, but there is standard silicon and there is something called a Gummy Bear.

"They have a sour patch one too... No, but they're different consistencies and there shape is a little different."

Tierney Opens Up About Cancer Fears


Maura Tierney

Former E.R. star Maura Tierney has spoken of the horror she felt on the day she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

The beloved actress, who had to pull out of hit U.S. TV show Parenthood to battle the disease last year (09), admits she was crippled with fear when she found a lump in her breast - and instinctively knew the news would not be good.

She tells Parade magazine, "I was so scared of going to the doctor. I felt something, and my boyfriend at the time made me go. He said, 'You've got to take care of this,' because I was afraid."

But Tierney, who is still battling the disease, insists she never felt sorry for herself: "I was so lucky. I had insurance, I found a great team of doctors... and I could afford not to work while I was getting treated.

Tierney Nearly Rejected New Tv Role


Maura Tierney

Actress Maura Tierney almost turned down the chance to return to TV in new crime drama THE WHOLE TRUTH after battling breast cancer - because she had no interest in starring in another series.

The former E.R. star was forced to drop out of another small screen show, Parenthood, last year (09) following her diagnosis, and she spent the following months undergoing treatment for the disease.

She has slowly began to revive her career and in April (10) signed up to reprise her role in firefighting drama Rescue Me for the 2011 season.

Tierney landed her first full-time job since her health scare in June (10), when she took on The Whole Truth - but the actress admits she came close to rejecting the part as prosecutor Kathryn Peale until she learned the role had been written with her in mind.

Tierney: 'I Didn't Want Cancer Battle Chronicled On Tv'


Maura Tierney

Former E.R. star Maura Tierney has revealed she pulled out of TV drama PARENTHOOD because she didn't want her cancer battle to be documented on television.

The actress dropped out of the new show after she was diagnosed with breast cancer last year (09) - but she insists it wasn't because she was too ill to act.

In her first interview since undergoing treatment for cancer, Tierney tells the New York Times, "I felt terrible leaving the Parenthood team in the lurch, but doing the show would have been very stressful because I didn’t want that phase of my life documented on film."

Tierney is slowly returning to TV - she'll revive her character in firefighting drama Rescue Me in 2011. She has also signed on to join Frances MCDormand onstage in Los Angeles and New York in the play North Atlantic.

Scotland, PA Review


Excellent
Fueled by gritty Bad Company songs, enough plaid to keep all residents of Alaska warm for winter, and Pabst Blue Ribbon on tap - Scotland, PA blasts onto the silver screen with the reckless intent of Patty Hearst during a bank robbery.

The last place I'd expect to see a Shakespearean adaptation of Macbeth to occur would be in a backwater town in the middle of Pennsylvania circa 1972. But it provides a dark and menacing backdrop to this loose - and do I mean loose - adaptation of Shakespeare's ever-popular tragedy of a incompetent husband and power-hungry wife weaving murderously toward power and riches.
