'Shameless' Shanola Hampton shares Veronica's 'hustle'

Zap2it: You've been described as someone who brings a lot of energy to the set of Showtime's "Shameless." Is that true?Shanola Hampton: [Laughs] That's what they call me, the Energizer Bunny. Oh, goodness gracious. Well, I've always had a lot of energy. I don't know why and I don't know where it comes from. But I know that when I first auditioned, they didn't know whether that was really me or if this was someone trying to get a job. So now five seasons in, they're like, 'OK, it's Shanola.' [laughs]Zap2it: So is there some of you in your character, Veronica?Shanola Hampton: There is some of me in Veronica in the sense that we have the same hustle. We have a very good spirit about us. Our hustles are different because we came from different backgrounds but [we have] that same fire and passion for life. I would say we're clearly alike in that but... http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Zap2it/~3/egJLsGZwYYg/shameless_shanola_hampton_veronica_hustle-2015-02

'Shameless': Jimmy/Steve returns and his timing couldn't be better

Finally, after waiting far too long, Jimmy/Steve has returned! At the end of the Feb. 8 episode of "Shameless," Fiona's long-lost love returned, much to her surprise. Of course, viewers knew it was coming. After all, Jimmy/Steve first turned up at the end of Season 4, but has been out of the picture ever since -- outside of sending his sidekick in to hit on Fiona and buy pie now and then.Circumstances have changed since the last time he was in the Gallaghers' lives. Fiona's gone through jail and probation and is now a married woman -- like that'll last. Is there still room in the Gallaghers' world for him? Would it really matter to him if there was? Jimmy was never much for leaving well enough alone.RELATED: 'Shameless' renewed for Season 6, 'Happyish' gets 10-episode orderPerhaps he can be some kind of stabilizing force in Fiona's life. She may not be doing cocaine and... http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Zap2it/~3/OiuE2eydoBE/shameless_jimmy_steve_returns_and_his_timing_couldnt_be_better-2015-02

Shameless Season 5 Episode 3 Review: The Two Lisas

Things were a little sad on Shameless Season 5 Episode 3 . People like to lump this show into the dramedy category, but I've always considered it to be much more of a drama than comedy. And "The Two Lisas," while providing some earnest laughs, was heavy on the drama. Personally that's how I like my Shameless. Things are always elevated to another level when the characters get to go beyond the jokes and show different sides of themselves. We've seen Debbie be vulnerable before, but that scene with Fiona at the end was gut wrenching. Mandy's mid-coitus declaration of love to Lip and the tears that followed was equally devastating.   Read More... http://www.tvfanatic.com/2015/01/shameless-season-5-episode-3-review-the-two-lisas/

'Shameless': Jimmy/Steve is coming back soon, and it doesn't go well

When fans tuned into the Season 5 premiere of "Shameless," it was almost perfect. Unfortunately the one thing keeping it from being amazing was the most important piece of the puzzle missing. After being reintroduced in the Season 4 finale, Jimmy/Steve was nowhere to be seen.At least the show teased his return by having the woman who brought him back becoming a regular where Fiona works. When will Jimmy/Steve return, though? According to star Emmy Rossum and executive producer Nancy Pimental, you won't have to wait too long. He comes back "about halfway through," Rossum tells Zap2it at the winter TV press tour."It's going to present a lot of challenges for Fiona," Pimental says. "It's going to remind her of the love that they had, but she's also a different person now. She's gotta make a choice."It will be a difficult thing for Fiona to face, but what about the rest of the Gallaghers?
