There's a reason that Poppy Montgomery calls her series, "Unforgettable," the show with nine lives.
The police procedural, starring Montgomery as a detective with a photographic memory, premiered in 2011 on CBS. It was cancelled not once, but twice. And now, the fourth season is airing Fridays on A&E. Lala Anthony has entered the fold as the show's new medical examiner.
"It has this weird following, which is amazing," says Montgomery. "It's like going on safari. You have to hunt to find us."
Now, her character has found her groove. And she's able to curse, with the show now airing on cable.
"She used to be troubled and I was crying constantly. Now I'm jaunty and have to have really good teeth. By the way, I woke up this morning and half of my front tooth was missing," says Montgomery. "Why am I eating candy, you guys? I still have baby pounds to lose!"
If you're looking for a tightly-packaged and heavily-handled Hollywood star, Montgomery is not your woman. Nothing much seems to get under Montgomery's skin -- she's upbeat, quick-witted and not freaked out by much.
"I do have a hair phobia. If it's on your head, I'm OK. if it's on the floor -- no," says Montgomery.
Montgomery heads up a blended family, combining her kids, and those of her second husband, Shawn Sanford. So before this interview, she kicks back on a couch, looking at her phone.
"I'm just checking on the 97 children I gave birth to," says Montgomery. "I have five. Two of them I didn't actually birth. I'm not getting up. I refuse."
On a side note, TV peeps have been killing it in the fashion and beauty realms. See below.
Our favorite beauty looks from the 2015 Emmys red carpet
OnlyOnAOL: Just pour some sugar on 'Unforgettable' star Poppy Montgomery
Though Naomi Watts’ overall look clearly channeled a classic ’60s vibe, her beauty style was decidedly current.
We scored the how-to for Naomi’s sophisticated updo straight from her hairstylist, Cervando Maldonado.
We’re not sure what shined brighter -- Taylor Schilling’s marigold gown or her glamorous blond bob. But we are certain that stealing her hair color will be lots easier (and less expensive) than coveting her couture dress.
Tom’s staying-power secret: Add a drop of facial oil to each nail to keep your color fresh and shiny, and your cuticles hydrated.
This clean and classic hairstyle with a modern center part proved the perfect complement to Rebecca Rittenhouse’s fluttery LBD.
Rebecca’s hairstylist, Mara Roszak, snapped this pic moments before the beauty took to the red carpet. Mara said, “We both agreed that hair down was definitely the way to go, but we wanted to keep the hair off her face.”
She used a blow-dryer with a round brush, and ultimately a flatiron, to define the subtle waves.
Mara modernized the style by tucking Rebecca’s hair behind her ears. She sprayed glossing mist all over the hair for added shine and finished the look by running the end of a comb dipped in styling gel over strands to tame flyaways.
It’s evident from the bold lip, vibrant gown and edgy hairstyle that Selenis Leyva doesn’t shy away from the spotlight. And confidence is the ultimate beauty must-have.
HairstylistTiffany Daugherty wanted to complement Selenis’ bold dress with a strong hairstyle.
