patricia arqeutte q&a: the actress on south florida green drinks



How would you like to meet up for some Green Drinks? Although Green Drinks may sound like the perfect name for some newfangled, health-conscious, eco-friendly beverage, it's nothing of the sort.

It actually stands for something much better: the name the Green Drinks nonprofit uses for its meetings, where South Florida members -- area professionals who share a common interest in being "green" -- get together for drinks to discuss ways to protect the environment. And this year, Green Drinks will be raising its glass to more than just good ideas when it celebrates its second-annual Eco-Lifestyle Gala with actress Patricia Arquette, this year's recipient of its Eco-Lifestyle Pioneer Award.

Green Drinks will honor Arquette for her work with GiveLove, the nonprofit Haiti relief organization she founded alongside Rosetta Millington-Getty in 2010. Arquette will also host the special fundraising event, set to take place May 19 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club.Recently, Charlie had an opportunity to speak with the celebrity philanthropist about her work with GiveLove, discuss what the Green Drinks award means to her -- and even get the scoop on her favorite eats when she's helping out in Haiti. Here's what actress Patricia Arquette had to say:

SPREAD THE WORD:

Did CBS Cancel 'Medium' Just To Put 'The Defenders' Into Its Timeslot? Of Course Not



The Defenders dipping to a woeful 1.1 adults 18-49 rating on Friday brought out the aggrieved Medium fans complaining that their show had been cancelled for an even lower rated show:

  • user #1: CBS is missing the 1.5 of Medium now. Defenders suck and CBS is getting what’s coming to it–loss of an entire scripted night as the ratings are falling as they anger regular fans.
  • user #2: MEDIUM isn’t looking so bad now, huh???? Revenge is sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • user #3: Well, Medium’s numbers weren’t so bad after all, were they, CBS?


Nonsense. Medium was cancelled because its ratings were terrible. The Defenders will also certainly be cancelled because its ratings are terrible. Once this season’s initial ratings results were in, there was/is absolutely no chance either show would make it to the 2011-12 season.

Krave gets spiritual with medium Allison Dubois



If you never had a chance to watch the supernatural drama Medium on NBC, don’t get too down on yourself. Yes, the show got many noms for Hollywood’s most coveted awards (and won an Emmy), and Patricia Arquette did a fabulous job portraying real-life medium Allison Dubois. But why watch an actress pretend she can see ghosts when you can meet someone who claims they actually can?

Allison Dubois, the real-life inspiration for Medium, was recently featured on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but if you’re into the crystal-ball gazer thing, head to Krave this weekend to meet her face to face. Ms. Dubois herself will be conducing a Valentine’s Love & Relationship Seminar at the gay nightclub this Saturday. Select audience members will have the opportunity to ask the medium about past loves, relationships and more at this very unique Valentine’s Day event.

Whether you’re dying for the closure you never received or just want to party it up with the diviner (and surrounding spirits)—Dubois will also host the nightclub’s Heart On Valentine’s Day party following the event—head to Krave this Saturday and get spiritual.

VALENTINE’S LOVE & RELATIONSHIP SEMINAR

Parenthood & Family Values... They must be Jewish!

Saying goodbye to Medium, the surprisingly Jewish television show that perfectly captured the realities of parenting, the depths of grief, and the joys of everyday life



Medium, which ended its seven-season run last week, was a show about ghosts, the afterlife, and general spookiness. But what it was really about was the messiness of family life. It presented the challenges of parenthood—funny, irksome, intimate, quotidian—as worthy of attention. “Can you make it to make our daughter’s soccer game?” was as important as “Why has the ghost of a murder victim taken possession of our video camera?”

If you weren’t a Medium watcher, let me fill you in. The show’s heroine, Allison (Patricia Arquette) was a psychic in Arizona who worked for the Phoenix District Attorney’s office, helping to solve crimes. She had to juggle her psychic visions, her relationship with her engineer husband, Joe, and the needs of her three quirky daughters.

It’s ironic that a show about the paranormal was so, well, normal. Allison didn’t look like the cookie-cutter starlets populating the TV universe. She wasn’t a size 2. She never wore spike heels to a crime scene. Her house looked like a real home, with unfortunate blue-and-yellow kitchen tiles I’m certain she hoped to replace as soon as they could afford it. Her girls squabbled at the breakfast table, and not in an adorable smart-assed sitcom-sassy way. I loved the show’s depiction of a loving marriage in which the partners fought and made up and had the same arguments over and over. (“Allison! Maybe that was just a regular dream, not a message from beyond the grave!” Oh, Joe.)

CBS comes under fire for onslaught of violent crime dramas



WASHINGTON — It's said all too often that you can't argue with success. But you can. The argument: CBS is doing a disservice by airing so many crime dramas. The counter-argument: Doing a disservice to whom? CBS is the most-watched network in America. Precisely the point. The more people who watch, the more people can get drawn into a worldview that we live in dangerous places in a dangerous society.

It's true that Marshal Matt Dillon gunned down some outlaw virtually every week on "Gunsmoke" — another CBS program — and that series ran 20 seasons. But by the time the show premiered in 1955, the Old West was a thing of the past. All of CBS' crime series are set in the present day.

Let's look at all of the CBS crime shows that aired the week of Jan. 16-22: "CSI: Miami," "Hawaii Five-O," "NCIS," "NCIS: Los Angeles," "Criminal Minds," "Blue Bloods," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "The Mentalist," "The Medium," two installments of "CSI: New York" and two reruns as part of the network's "Crimetime Saturday" package.
