'Charmed' end is near
NEW YORK -- The spell is broken.
The witches on "Charmed" won't be making the move when the WB network combines forces with UPN to become the CW network in the fall.
A WB spokesman confirmed a TV Guide report that said the supernatural series, which stars Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan and Holly Marie Combs, will end after eight seasons in May.
With "7th Heaven" having already announced its exit, it means that two WB long-running series won't move to the CW. The WB and UPN will both shut down in September.
The final episode of "Charmed" will air on May 21, TV Guide said.
"It's been a hell of a run," Brad Kern, executive producer, told the magazine. "But all good things must come to an end."
"I'm a sucker for old-school Lionel Richie. This is going to make me sound like a sap, but in sixth grade our school chorus had to sing our rendition of 'Hello,' and I kind of dug it." -- Wentworth Miller ("Prison Break"), on his favorite love song, in People.
"My friends will be waiting for me and I'll say, 'I've been on the freeway for two hours,' when I've really only been on it for five minutes. I do that all the time." -- Jaime Pressly ("My Name is Earl"), in Teen People.
"Nothing. Not even the paparazzi. I love that. I absolutely love it." -- Nicole Richie, on the worst part of Fashion Week, in People.
Fashionable Web site
The world of fashion has been known as an exclusive club for the rich and beautiful -- but not anymore.
The Glam Blog Network has launched a community section to bring high fashion to the masses.
Glam Community provides a place for people interested in fashion to interact. The "Talk" section is a forum that allows users to ask questions, get advice or simply state their opinions. And stay updated on the latest news and trends by reading the "Pulse" section.
The site offers plenty of behind-the-scenes glimpses: Fashion designer Nanette Lepore published a blog to give users an inside look at Olympus Fashion Week. Readers get a peek at every aspect of putting on a fashion show, from fitting the models to choosing the runway music.
Or go to the "Blogs" section to read posts from fashion enthusiasts. To feel like you're really there, check out pictures from runway shows in the "Photos" section.
