SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Nicole Richie Brings Signature Style to NBC's "Fashion Star"

By Karen Moul

Nicole RichieRenaissance woman Nicole Ritchie has a new job!

The fashion designer-actress-author-singer is a celebrity mentor on NBC’s new reality series Fashion Star. Each week, Nicole offers advice to 14 unknown designers as they pursue a serious prize: $6 million in orders from H&M, Macy’s and Saks Fifth Avenue.

“Being a mentor is something that's new for me,” says Nicole, “but a role that I take very seriously. It was a wonderful experience doing it.”

“I find this show to be very inspirational. It's always such a great feeling to watch people's dreams come true. And if I can help them be a part of that then that's something that I was right away on board for.”

Nicole’s own mentor, she tells Scifi Vision, “Has been my father. Actually both of my parents have always been ones to encourage me to be myself and stay true to myself and not fall into what other people want me to do.”

“And it is important not to copy other people's careers,” she adds, “but set the tone of who you want to be. And my father's always encouraged me to do that.”

Nicole launched her two fashion lines, Winter Kate and House of Harlow 1960, in 2009. What is the biggest lesson she’s learned? Be open to change.

“You have to be able to learn from your mistakes and grow and be open to criticism. And that is something that I talked to the designers about all through the season.”

Last week, Nicole spoke with us about Fashion Star, looking great on a budget, and her own fashion regrets.

Fashion Star airs at 10:00 pm on Tuesdays on NBC.

"Grimm:" Bitsie Tullock - What's in store for Juliette?

By Karen Moul

Bitsie TullochAfter a brief hiatus, Grimm is back this week with a new episode featuring Portland’s sexiest Hexenbiest, Adalind. From NBC:

After the grisly murder of a familiar shop owner, Nick joins forces with Monroe to help solve the murder. When the shop owner’s sister, Rosalee (guest star Bree Turner), comes to town, Nick thinks he may have found a new ally in the creature world. Elsewhere, Captain Renard enlists Adalind to cast a spell on Hank. Meanwhile, Sgt. Wu unwittingly becomes entangled in Adalind’s dastardly plan.

What NBC doesn’t mention is what’s up with Juliette? In the last few episodes she discovered an engagement ring stashed in Nick’s sock drawer, then was abducted by a crazy Dämonfeuer. It was a bit too much for her to handle, and she told Nick so.

So where does that leave their relationship?

Actress Bitsie Tulloch, who plays Juliette, recently shared her thoughts. “I think she is confused,” Bitsie told Scifi Vision, “extremely confused. She's worried, her mind is just constantly racing, trying to figure out what is going on with him.”

Awake 1.4 Review: "Kate is Enough"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

once_upon_a_timeImagining what might have happened differently in one's life is something a lot of us do on a lark. It's a pipe dream, of course, but in the case of Michael Britten, it's something he's literally experiencing.

Justified 3.10 Review: "Guy Walks Into a Bar"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

Justified_iconAs this episode was running, I actually felt the slightest bit of sympathy for Quarles. Then I remembered that he is a low-down, sadistic psychopath who is probably even more dangerous now that he has nothing to lose. Boyd had made it his mission from the beginning to get rid of this interloper, and with the sneaky way in which he stole the sheriff's election out from under Quarles' clutches, his job was finally finished.

Ringer 1.18 Review: "That Woman's Never Been a Victim Her Entire Life"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

ringer_iconThis episode was running efficiently for about a half hour, stumbled a bit, then recovered its footing somewhat at the end. Frankly, I think that's quite an accomplishment given the narrative maze that's been created and passes for an overall plot. That's the impression the show gets when this is the first fairly straightforward episode done in a long time.

Merlin 4.12 Review: "The Sword in the Stone: Part 1"

By John Keegan and Gregg Wright

merlinAs I've come to expect from "Merlin", the really big plot developments are always saved for the finale, which generally makes them the highlight of any season of the show. Unfortunately, this has the effect of making a lot of the episodes in between feel like filler. This year was a bit better than any previous one in that regard, but it still falls well below my expectations. Still, we're at the finale now, and it's hard not to appreciate it for basically being the kind of episode that we really should be seeing a lot more of on "Merlin".

Once Upon a Time 1.16 Review: "Heart of Darkness"

By John Keegan and Edmund Boys

once_upon_a_timeRegular readers know that I have wondered how much latitude the House of Mouse will allow “Once Upon A Time” with its treasured characters. Apparently, the producers aren't unaware of this question. The answer they provide in the opening of “Heart of Darkness” is, quite a lot, thank you very much.
