TV DIVAGAL at TV Summer Press Tour: Day 3 – Taraji Henson’s Killer Exercise Routine, Dave Foley and the Boys of Hart of Dixie!By Delaina Dixon | August 4, 2011 | Entertainment
As the CBS/Showtime/CW morning begins, the topic on everyone’s mind is Two and a Half Men! CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler puts us all to rest as she reveals Ashton Kutcher‘s character on the series. Read all about it here.
During the Person of Interest panel – the cast spoke with reporters via satellite – we still squeezed in a workout question for star Taraji P. Henson. She plays a caring cop chasing afterJim Caviezel’s character, which means she’s got to stay in shape. “I found this class called Physique 57,” which is a rigorous routine of isometric exercises and orthopedic stretches that lengthen and sculpt your muscles and create a beautiful, lean body. “It’s pretty intense,” Taraji states. “And it works. What do you guys think,” she asked her male cast, and they gave thumbs up. I know what I’m booking when I get back to the city…
At the CBS All-Star Party across the street from the Beverly Hilton, How to Be a Gentleman stars Dave Foley (of Kids in the Hall Fame) and Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords) did double duty as photogs for TV DivaGal: They each snapped a pic with me in it. FYI: Kids In the Hall fans, Dave — who was on his way to open for pals Scott Thompson and Bruce McCulloch in a show in dowtown L.A. — and the team are actually contemplating doing another mini-series, and if we’re lucky, a 25th reunion tour in 2014 (the boys can thank me for that idea!).
I met Wilson Bethel who plays Wade, the bad boy Rachel Bilson can’t resist on the upcoming CW series Hart of Dixie. Rachel’s character, a New York-trained doctor who relocates to Alabama, is actually involved in a love triangle with Wade and good guy George Tucker. So who will she ultimately chose? “Seriously, do you have to ask,” Wilson chuckled. Yes, those bad boys do seem to win out every time!
I also chatted with Mike and Molly star Reno Wilson, who admitted that his wife Coco guided his fashion choice for the night. Obviously, the gal’s got skills, judging from the down-to-there backless dress she was sporting.
Until tomorrow, my fellow Divas…
