Actress Alyssa Milano is a major league fan of baseball, and as the daughter of a fashion designer, she’s also got an eye for a smart fit. The Mistresses star unveiled her new line of sports-inspired clothing on Monday during a promotional appearance in New York City. The 40-year-old modelled one shirt herself, in the form of a feminine low-cut tee with The Mets ‘All Star Game 2013′ emblazoned on the front.
The Who’s the Boss star, who writes a regular baseball blog on the Major League Baseball website, launched the Touch line of team apparel for female sports fans in 20007.
During the Time’s Square launch at Modell’s, the mega New York sporting goods store, the Brooklyn-born actress looked tanned and toned as she shook fans hands and signed autographs.

Sports fan Alyssa Milano hit the baseball diamond on Sunday to play in a celebrity softball game alongside legends of the sport.
The 40-year-old actress represented her beloved Los Angeles Dodgers during the game pitting her National League team against an American League squad of celebrities and retired baseball players.
Alyssa looked to be having a blast at the Taco Bell All-Star Legends and Celebrity softball game at Citi Field in Flushing, New York.

Looks like Alyssa Milano’s experience on Charmed didn’t quite live up to the title of the show. Talking with Andy Cohen on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, July 9, the Mistresses actress hinted that things weren’t always magical between her and former costars Shannen Doherty and Holly Marie Combs.
Asked what really went down when Doherty left the show in 2001 after playing witchy sister Prue Halliwell for three seasons, the 40-year-old Who’s the Boss? alum said even she wasn’t sure. “We never really found out what happened,” she told the fan who asked the question. “I can tell you that we were on the air with her for three years, and there were definitely some rough days.”
“Holly and Shannen were best friends for like 10 years before the show started, so it was very much sort of like high school,” she explained. “I would hope that in our thirties it wouldn’t be like that anymore.”
“High school is over!” Cohen quipped.
The former child star laughed, then added: “I never went to a high school because I was tutored on the set, but I imagine it would have been a lot like that.”
Combs, now starring on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, apparently disagreed with Milano’s assessment of the experience. “Working on Charmed was nothing like high school,” she tweeted. “I went to high school. It was a very important job to me and always will be.”
“Yeah, agreed, considering it helped me support my family and pay for my dad’s medical issues, but everyone has their opinion and views,” Doherty chimed in. She later added, however, that she wasn’t mad and thought Milano “did a great job” on WWHL. “That show can be tricky,” she tweeted to a fan.
“OK, gang, there’s no drama,” she clarified. “Let’s not feed into it!!”
Milano, for her part, later tried to smooth things over with her former costars. In response to Combs’ tweet, she wrote, “You’re lovely…My best to the family! Mwah! And my parents send their love to you!”
Combs didn’t respond, but she and Milano can at least agree on one thing: Charmed was important to both of them. “It was the best job I’ve ever had in my life,” Milano said on WWHL. “Certainly a learning experience.”
Annnd, we’ve got even more talk show releated updates for y’all! On July 9, Alyssa appeared on the talk show “Watch What Happens Live“. This is definitly one of my favorite interviews this year, as she finally got some questions we haven’t heard a trillion times before. It also featured a bunch of old clips of Alyssa’s past projects, including her Teen Steam workout video, Crash Course, an old commercial (which I had never seen before!) and more. Trivia loving fans will also love that Alyssa used to play basketball on set with George Clooney as a kid!

She’s getting a lot of the same questions as she’s been given in her other recent interviews, but it’s still worth a look. Enjoy!

Los Angeles, July 4: Actor Channing Tatum admits to having a childhood crush on actress Alyssa Milano.
The 33-year-old, now married to actress Jenna Dewan and father of a daughter, also said that Milano was his first celebrity crush and he would probably freak out if he met her.
“She was it, man. I’d love to run into her. I’m pretty sure I’d geek out. Isn’t she married,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Tatum as saying.
The “White House Down” star also said that he likes to swim when he isn’t working.
“I have a really nice back porch where the pool is. Once the shoes are off, the socks come off too, and then everything else downstairs just follows at some point.”
Tatum and his wife, who met on the set of their movie “Step Up” in 2006, have a unique way of making sure they are still happy together.
“Jenna and I have a trick we use to check in with each other. We say, ‘On a scale of one to 10, how much do you love me right now?’ It’s not as romantic as you think. Sometimes it’s like, ‘I love you at a six right now. I have an issue, and you asked. So now I’m going to tell you’,” he said.
Hello netters! As the title says, I’ve now (finally, you might say?) added screencaptures from all of the “Mistresses” episodes that have been aired so far. There’s a total of 1800+ crispy-clear HD screencaptures – and Alyssa is absolutely gorgeous in ’em! As for the show, I’m really enjoying it so far, and can’t wait to see how the story develops from here. What’s your opinions on the show so far? We’d love to hear your opinions – either comment to this post, or head over to our forums to discuss with other fans here.
Thumbnail previews and links to the episode screencaptures can be found below! I’ll start working on an information section for the show now, where I’ll also post episode summaries – for now though, enjoy the pretty HD caps, and as always, stay tuned for more!

Has anyone ever told you a juicy piece of gossip and you swore to keep it secret? All of a sudden each conversation that follows feels like you’re sitting on a witness stand.
If they just said, “Hey, no big deal, but listen to this…” you’d forget it seconds later, and never tell anybody. But when they say, “Don’t tell a soul!” for some reason our poker faces melt off and we’re an open book.
That’s kind of what happened to me recently while sitting in the guest’s chair on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” I had been waiting and waiting and waiting to tell this huge, exciting secret. I couldn’t wait any longer! So I told millions of people.
I’m part of the NASCAR family! How the heck am I supposed to keep that one under wraps? Would you?
That’s right, my women’s fashion collection, Touch by Alyssa Milano is now available for all female NASCAR fans! And, I’m absolutely thrilled to let everyone know.
Better yet, you don’t have to leave this site to see the new NASCAR styles. They’re all right here on NASCAR.com. Visit www.nascar.com/superstore to check them out!
As you guys may know, I’m a passionate sports fan. And I love sharing that passion with other sports fans. And no one is more passionate than NASCAR fans.
That’s why I’m so excited about bringing Touch to NASCAR. I’m hoping that the millions of female NASCAR fans will love it as much they love NASCAR. I mean, the first rule of being a NASCAR fan is choosing your favorite driver, right? The new Touch Collection will help you do just that. Gotta support your guy – or girl … and look stylish doing it!
Women flock to the race tracks every weekend as much as men do. I don’t think there’s any sport with a more loyal female fan base than NASCAR. It’s a perfect fit!
So I hope you guys love the new Touch NASCAR Collection. I’m really proud of it, and excited to be able to finally share it with all my fellow female NASCAR fans.
See you at the races!
Peace, Love and NASCAR, Alyssa
