Ask actor Paul Howard's parents, and they will tell you Paul was destined to be a performer. As a child he grabbed his toy guitar and performed Beatles songs for them on a makeshift stage; as a teenager he gained local notoriety for his uncanny ability to emulate Michael Jackson down to the smallest nuances of his performance; and when he ultimately left his Sacramento home to attend the University of California, Irvine as a drama major, his fate was sealed.

With a extensive list of film, television and stage appearances and a modeling career under his belt, Howard is now endeavouring for a walk-on role on the hit AMC series, Mad Men.  The network has teamed up with Banana Republic to sponsor a contest where the entrant who earns the most votes garners a guest spot on the show set in the world of advertising hacks in the oh so hip 1960s. Howard hopes to score enough of your clicks to win.

Join Paul as our guest Saturday night, August 27th along with David and Frank (Michael will be on assignment), at 8pm PDT on

Before there was Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, Extra, Sam Rubin, or even Barbara Walters, there was Miss Rona. Rona Barrett is one of the best known pioneers and innovators in entertainment reporting and publishing. She developed the first in-depth personal TV specials about the celebrities of film, television, music, sports and politics, and published a series of magazines on the entertainment industry for consumers and for industry insiders, including Rona Barrett’s Hollywood.

In 1966, she began broadcasting Hollywood gossip on the Los Angeles television station KABC-TV. She appeared on TV regularly, going on to appear on ABC's five owned and operated stations around the country.  She developed the first in-depth personal TV specials about the celebrities of motion pictures, television, music, sports and politics. As such she paved the way for Walters and many entertainment reporters.

Clips from Rona's celebrity interviews back in the day.

Today, Rona’s focus is on her non-profit Foundation and helping to address today’s growing crisis in care for our most vulnerable seniors.

Rona joins us on LiveLASaturdayNight, this Saturday, August 20th, 2011 at 8pm on, Channel 1. Tell your friends!
