The best doesn’t come cheap…and this time it could cost him his heart. The Billionaire Bargains book one Handsome billionaire Adam Steele is good. Good at getting his way. If nothing else, money always works—until he realizes he can’t buy his daughter’s way out of her new wheelchair. Three private physical therapists later, he’s almost given up on Emily walking again. Then he meets Dr. Jaden Monroe. And his match. Feisty physical therapist Jaden Monroe has never met a man quite like Adam. She’s not sure if it’s his I’m-in-charge attitude or the heat in his eyes when he looks at her, but she finds herself wanting to say yes to anything he asks. Like when he asks her to help his daughter walk again. Of course, the million dollars he offers—just enough to finish the pediatric rehab wing Jaden has been working for and dreaming of—is hard to say no to as well.  But Jaden didn’t anticipate a teen whose injuries are more than physical. Or a man so passionate and devoted—and as tenacious as she is. As she and Adam fight their attraction, the only thing harder than keeping her promise will be keeping a hold on her heart. Warning: Contains heated arguments that erupt only slightly more often than hot kissing, a new perspective on kitchen appliances, and sizzling sex occurring everywhere BUT the bedroom (though they eventually make it there). ***THIS TITLE WAS PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED.

Nicholas Brendon Arrested

An actor best known for his roles in the television series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Criminal Minds" got into an argument with a girlfriend, choked her and was arrested, p…


Access Hollywood Latest News

What Led Actor Nicholas Brendon To Walk Off Dr. Phil’s Show

Nicholas Brendon, best known for his role as “Xander Harris” on the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and most recently for his role as “Kevin Lynch” on “Criminal Minds,” reveals that he has been battling depression and alcohol abuse and has found himself arrested five times in the last eight months.

“Dual diagnosis means that I’m [expletive] crazy, and I’m a [expletive] drunk,” Brendon says. “Depression is a real thing; and I was ashamed of it a little bit, too.” 

Brendon says he began drinking socially at the age of 26, and it soon became a way for him to cope with anxiety. “It goes from, Hey, I’m having fun, to then I, literally, needed to have a drink before I could have a conversation with people,” he says. “I knew by the end of ‘Buffy’ that things were a little out of control for me.”

After “Buffy” ended, Brendon says he landed a role on another TV show that soon was cancelled, and he says he felt like Hollywood wasn’t interested in him anymore. “I took it personally,” he says, adding that he drinks because he can’t handle his emotions. Drinking initially quells the anxiety, definitely, but then it just adds to the anger.” 

Brendon explains the dangerous combination that he believes led to his string of arrests – sleeping pills and alcohol. “That combination, for me, was very deadly,” he says. “When you do those two things, you just black out and obviously, a rage exists, because I would trash hotel rooms. I truly was insane. There was no rational thinking in it at all.”

In the video above, Dr. Phil tells Brendon he wants to make a plan to save his life, but when he starts to ask the actor about his behavior, Brendon walks away. This episode of “Dr. Phil” airs Wednesday. Is Brendon ready to make hard choices and take the steps needed to save his life and career? Find out where you can watch here.

Photographer Nicholas Contrera Documents New York City’s Genderqueer Scene

2015-06-10-1433948157-9985023-Nick_TTP.jpg
Self Portrait by Nicholas Contrera

Nicholas Contrera and I recently met for a beer on the patio of a queer dive bar in Brooklyn. Contrera is really a dream interviewee. Almost immediately after sitting down he started telling me about the projects he has in the works: a photo series capturing genderqueer night life personalities, and his spread in this year’s NYC Pride Guide. I just sat back, listened, and enjoyed hearing him talk about his photography. I think that passion comes across in this interview, and know it’s very present in his work.

Phillip Miner: Tell me about your collodion wet plate series.

Nicholas Contrera: I’m calling it either Tribe or Tribal — I think Tribal; I like the tone of that. The series is an aspect of myself in New York in the society — in the clique and the lifestyle — I live.

When I first got to New York, I read Patti Smith’s Just Kids. I was very into the ’80s New York and Paris Is Burning New York, and I tried to almost capture that New York, which doesn’t exist anymore. The photographs just didn’t work. I realized my work needed to be my New York. This is my New York. This is my time. This is when I look back when I’m older and say, “My time is the best.”

I’ve become friends with the club kids and the ladyboys, the kids who go out with beards and lipstick and have a genderbending look. I find them the bravest gays to go out, pushing past boundaries, breaks so many walls for all of the gay community.

PM: Tell me a little more about the people you’re photographing.

NC: I’m not just photographing the typical drag queen. I’m photographing the people around me. These are the people who surround me every night. In the nine months of doing this project, the work has changed me and my sexuality. I’m still a gay male, but it’s encouraged me to explore my feminine side. When I go out I give more femme. I push those boundaries. I can give more femininity and have these genderbending moments.

Similarly, I never wanted the work to just be restricted as a gay piece. I want my work to reach everyone. I want this work to appeal to the largest audience possible.

PM: Why did you choose this particular photography process?

NC: The process was made in the early 1900s for the lower working class. Tin was so cheap you could go and get a portrait of your family. What a lot of photographers would do is take this process to Africa or other countries and document the people who were living out there, the natives, and come back and show what they found.

I was talking to my mentor, and we realized this is what I’m doing. I’m going out there and photographing my tribe, which is really foreign to a lot of people. This is a tribe. New York nightlife, the New York gay scene — these are both tribes.

I fell in love with the collodion process and felt this would be a perfect medium to produce this series with. I love processes that get me dirty. I love that the photo happens once. The type of film I’m using limits me to 12 shots. With wet plate you photograph once and that’s the image. That’s how I view these people, when they go out and give these looks, mixing masculinity and femininity. For me those looks, those moments, are collectable. That’s what I capture in my photographs.

PM: That’s a great contrast to the selfie culture we have these days, where people take 30 pictures to get just the right angle so that they look perfect.

NC: You’ve got it. What I love about wet plate is the mistakes, the scratches on the plate. Some people are perfectionists. For me, I love the grime of the plates.

PM: You have a series of photographs in this year’s NYC Pride Guide called Extraordinary. Can you tell me about that?

NC: New York Pride came to me. They saw my black-and-white work and wanted me to do a series for the Pride Guide. They had me photograph nine transgender men and women. It’s been such an honor and a privilege to photograph these people.

My favorite person to shoot was a woman who grew up in New York City and has identified as trans since she was 13. She was in New York during the Stonewall riots. She was there for the birth of our gay-rights movement. I spent a couple hours with her, and the stories she told me were incredible.

All of the sudden my work was about grey gender and transgender. I’m doing so much work with the current gender movement! Pride Guide is my biggest success. I’m honored, as a gay man, to be asked. The trans community are our last brothers and sisters to get their rights. I’m hoping, in my way, I’m helping make that happen.

PM: Could you tell me more about that?

NC: Our society loves to label and box things. For a long time society boxed in gay society. If we were gay, we were supposed to be feminine, a sissy. If we were gay, we were supposed to be butch. It served a purpose. When we started this movement, it’s easier when people thought they understood us. If they were given a bunch of genderqueer people, middle America would have no way to relate.

With this work I want to break labels and break boxes. There’s a moment I have with the people I photograph, and I really want to show who they really are.

The manager at the front desk told an officer … that Brendon had taken pills and alcohol and was walking around the hotel with blood on him and his clothes torn and wet from a toilet he says the actor had caused to overflow. During their conversation, Brendon arrived, wearing a T-shirt and pajama pants that had a crotch tear, the report stated.

[…] “I observed him with toothpaste all over his face and shirt, his pants were torn, he had defecated on himself and his pajama pants were wet below the knees,” the officer wrote in the report.

Brendon was reportedly placed under arrest and released on Saturday after posting bail.

The 43-year-old actor, who has a recurring role on the CBS show “Criminal Minds,” was arrested in October and February under similar circumstances.

U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault (Efron) returns from his third tour of duty in Iraq, with the one thing he credits with keeping him alive-a photograph he found of a woman he doesn't even know. Discovering her name is Beth (Schilling) and where she lives, he shows up at her door, and ends up taking a job at her family-run local kennel. Despite her initial mistrust and the complications in her life, a romance develops between them, giving Logan hope that Beth could be much more than his good luck charm.

Behind the Scenes with Neighbors Director Nicholas Stoller and Actors Ike Barinholtz and Jerrod Carmichael

This question originally appeared on Quora: What is it like to direct a film you’ve also written?

2014-05-12-nstoller.jpeg
Answer by Nicholas Stoller, Director/Screenwriter, Neighbors

I’ve done both. I always find my way into a movie by re-writing it, whether I’ve written it or not. I found it a lot harder to direct something I wrote, which I did with 'Get Him to the Greek (2010 movie),' and I co-wrote 'The Five-Year Engagement (2012 movie).'
 
I found it more difficult because you don’t have as much perspective on it because everything is coming from you. I’ve found that with 'Neighbors (2014 film)' and the projects that I’m considering now, I’m a little bit more interested to work with a script that someone else has written because I think I can bring a different perspective to that project.

This question originally appeared on Quora: What are the pros and cons of acting in an ensemble film or series?

2014-05-12-ibarinholtz.jpeg
Answer by Ike Barinholtz, Actor, Neighbors, The Mindy Project

Acting in an ensemble film is great. When we were shooting some of the scenes in Neighbors, specifically in the frat house, you have so many different ingredients. You have Jerrod Carmichael, who is an amazing comedian. You have Dave Franco who is an amazing actor. You have Seth Rogen who is an amazing writer. So you have all of these different points of view blending together. Sometimes it doesn’t work out and sometimes it does. Nicholas Stoller, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver really put together a funny and different group of people. We had the young, old, stand-up, sketch, etc.

Answer by Jerrod Carmichael, Actor, Writer, Neighbors

Neighbors was my first movie. I’m lucky to have worked with such an amazing cast and on a film where people didn’t compromise the integrity of the film just to get attention. The film was planned with the common goal to make something funny and to make something the audiences would love. The public loses interest if you don’t have a camaraderie amongst the people you’re working with.
 
You have these moments on set where you improve and learn a lot. Throughout filming we would all feed each other ideas that seemed to come from nowhere, but that worked really well. Luckily we had great writers with fast minds, so we all worked together like one well-oiled machine.
