Late last month, Jared and Jensen stopped by CBS’ daytime show ‘The Talk‘ to discuss Supernatural before PaleyFest. That episode aired this past Monday (April 2nd) and I’ve added stills from their appearance in the gallery. You can always check out video of their interview below (courtesy of Wayward Winchester on Youtube).
Lorelai Gilmore won’t stop talking. Ever. It’s kind of her thing. She talks incessantly at a lightning-quick pace that can only be sustained by drinking multiple cups of coffee every day. At least she did … until season 7. Lauren Graham remembers the exact moment it happened. “I was in a scene in that seventh season and I thought, ‘Something feels so odd to me,’” Graham says. “And it was I was in a scene with two other people and I wasn’t talking. I thought, ‘I’ve never had this before.’” For Gilmore Girls fans, season 7 is essentially The Godfather Part III of the series: Some people defend it, but it doesn’t come close to touching the original. That all stems from the fact that Gilmore creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino, along with executive producer Daniel Palladino, left the show after season 6 due to contract disputes. And Gilmore had to continue without its leaders for what would become its final season. (It was canceled after shooting wrapped.) With that cancellation, fans were forced to accept the season 7 finale — which featured Rory (Alexis Bledel) heading off to cover the Obama campaign and Lorelai rekindling her romance with Luke (Scott Patterson) — as the series ending. That is until Netflix came to the rescue.
On Friday, Nov. 25, Netflix will release Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, a four-part revival that will take fans back inside Stars Hollow so Sherman-Palladino can finally end the show the way she always intended, down to the final four words that she’d first imagined in season 1 — words Matt Czuchry believes will cause a “heated debate” among fans. That ending comes packed full of familiar faces — Sookie! Paris! Paul Anka! — though its focus is on the one that’s missing. The revival kicks off with the funeral of Richard Gilmore (actor Edward Herrmann died in 2014) and follows the remaining Gilmores as they work through their grief over the next year. “It’s a story about women at crossroads in their lives,” Sherman-Palladino says. “It’s going to have more weight and more emotion, because there’s more time and when you’ve got time, you don’t have to truncate moments.”

Jared Padalecki is going to be a dad for the third time! The Supernatural star stopped by Live with Kelly on Monday, and spilled some exciting news to Kelly Ripa and co-host for the day Richard Curtis. “When I started the show, I was 22 years old — I was a single guy, kind of doing my thing,” said the actor, 34, who met his wife Genevieve Cortese Padalecki when she had a recurring role on season 4 of Supernatural. “Now I’m 12 years older, father of two, about to be father of three in March,” he added, to cheers and applause from the audience as his wife smiled brightly from just offstage. Padalecki and Cortese Padalecki married in 2010, and have two sons: Shepherd, 2½, and Thomas Colton, 4½. But before the couple got together, Padalecki admitted he tells quite a different story about who initiated their courting period depending on who he’s talking to. “The story I tell amongst my friends is that she wouldn’t leave me alone, right?” said the self-professed family man. “So finally I was like, ‘All right, yeah yeah, fine, I’ll go on a date with you, fine.’ ”
“You sound cool like that,” Curtis joked. “But [in reality], she came on set and it was season 4, which was eight years ago,” he recalls. “I thought she was cute and smart, and I remember she would always read books. And one of my pet peeves is when somebody interrupts me when I’m reading — like I kind of get the shakes.” He continues, “But I kept on finding myself interrupting her. I’d be like, ‘So what’s your favorite Hemingway?’ [Then] I’d go in my trailer and look up Hemingway. I thought she was awesome and so I asked her out to lunch, and it turned into hanging out and talking about traveling, and it turned into dinner.” The actor says that while he’s been filming in Vancouver, his wife has been on duty in their Austin, Texas home to make sure their sons have a good routine. “She’s been buckling down with the kids, because they’ve had their school year [start],” he says.
