Parental angst and teen loathing on 'Parenthood'

On last night's episode of "Parenthood," nearly all the parents were wondering or fighting about whether they were doing something to screw up their kids.

At the dress rehearsal for the first grade play, Jabbar develops stage fright and doesn’t want to do the play anymore. Cousin Sydney, however, is happy to step up. Crosby seems very disappointed. At home he tries to explain the concept of butterflies and why it's important to try even if he's scared. 

Mom Jasmine, who spends time on stage, joins in the conversation, but tells Jabbar he doesn't have to do it, without discussing it with Crosby. Which is strange, considering she recently yelled at Crosby for not backing her up. And I swear I saw her look at him like, "let's see how you like it when I play the good parent for a change."

How Kristen Stewart plans to spend her 'Twilight' money

Being Bella isn't easy — or so says "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart in the February issue of Vogue.

Though she has played Stephenie Meyer's fictional heroine since 2008, Stewart feels additional pressure to do the character justice now that the two-part "Breaking Dawn" finale is bringing the saga to a close.

Read the full interview with Kristen Stewart in Vogue

“[She is] a character who is embedded in so many people’s psyches at this point," Stewart, 20, says of Bella. "It’s starting to enter my head a lot more than it used to because it’s at the end and it’s come such a long way. I just want the fans of the book to be happy. I don’t necessarily care about anyone else.”

Kelly Preston: Silent birth gave me peaceful kids

A week after Kelly Preston and husband John Travolta shared photos of their new addition with the world, Preston is opening up on the more intimate details of baby Benjamin’s arrival.

In her first TV interview since his birth on November 23, Preston told the “Today” show how “wonderful” it is to bring “another child into the world and to look at things through his eyes. He’s so innocent and so sweet.”

The 48-year-old “Casino Jack” star also talked about how the public's support after Benjamin's birth has been healing for the family. Travolta and Preston, who also have a daughter, 10-year-old Ella Bleu, lost their son Jett at the age of 16 in 2009.
