Fans of singer/actress Hilary Duff have every reason to be delighted as they prepare to see their favorite actress essaying the role of Bonnie Parker in the remake (not a copy paste version, but with much more insights and lots of different incidents to focus on) of the 1967 Oscar winning classic “Bonnie And Clyde.” From the looks of the sneak peaks that have been leaked online, the former “Lizzie McGuire” star looks all set to step in to shoes of the reel life Bonnie and looks comfortable enough to do justice to the character.
The new movie, which was set to go on floors from July, but got postponed, is in talks to start filming roughly around October. According to the indication of the Tonya S. Holly, who is the president of the studio which is making the film, shooting is supposed to commence around October.
Hilary Duff herself has said that she has pending commitments at hand to work out first, like the “Gossip Girl” episodes and the filming of “The Business of Falling In Love”, and only then she could move to dedicate her time in the filming of “Bonnie And Clyde.” The movie will star Kevin Zegers as Clyde Barrow, besides others like Thora Birch, Taryn Manning, Rance Howard, Michael Madsen and Cloris Leachman.
According to Holly, the movie is not going to be a remake exactly, but intends to present many new instances of the adventurous, crime filled life that was led by the real life couple of Bonnie and Clyde, that have not made it to the screen before.

Actress MELANIE GRIFFITH has checked into rehab in Utah for undisclosed issues.
The 52-year-old actress is seeking treatment at the Cirque Lodge, where actresses Kirsten Dunst and Lindsay Lohan have both spent time in recent years.
Griffith's representative Robin Baum tells Star magazine, "She is there to reinforce her commitment to stay healthy. This is part of a routine plan that was designed between her and her doctors years ago."
Sources tell the tabloid the star, who is married to Spanish actor Antonio Banderas, turned to rehab after losing her longtime battle with alcohol.
An insider is quoted saying, "She's working with the counselors on getting control of her demons.
The reason Melanie checked in was her husband was demanding that she get clean and sober."
Another source tells the Star, "Melanie's struggling right now, but Antonio has been checking in on her as much as he is allowed, making sure she gets back on her feet."
Griffith battled drink and drugs in the 1970s and 80s, and spent time in rehab in 1998 and again in 2000 in an effort to kick an addiction to prescription painkillers.

Jessica Biel fans beware - she has been named as the most dangerous star on the internet.
Devotees to the Blade Trinity actress are more likely to end up falling victim to spyware and virus threats on their PCs while searching for information on the beauty more than any other celebrity.
According to online security company McAfee Inc., fans 'Googling' the actress have a one-in-five chance of ending up at a site that can damage their computer.
However, Biel is in good company - Hollywood heavyweight Brad Pitt was branded the most dangerous celebrity online in the same poll last year.
A spokesman for McAfee explains, "Cybercriminals are star watchers, too. They latch onto popular celebrities to encourage the download of malicious software in disguise."
Other 'dangerous' stars include Beyonce Knowles, Jennifer Aniston, Tom Brady and Jessica Simpson.
Lindsay Lohan is facing some tough romantic competition --
The former Danity Kane star has revealed she has a huge crush on DJ Samantha Ronson and believes the two would be "perfect together."
Speaking to Curve magazine, O'Day says, "Every time I see her (Ronson) I want to go over and talk to her, but it's like she's going to be like, 'You're that girl that tried to say you're gay everywhere,' and I'm like, 'No, I promise -- get to know me. We'd be perfect together.'"
And she thinks she could give Ronson the romance she craves: "Lindsay and that relationship made it such a joke. It was just, like, on every cover, on every tabloid. Their relationship has been her job for the past year.
"You just can't live up to that entire Disneyland circus that went on in your relationship."

TLC, the record-breaking, four-time R&B Grammy winners who were a mainstay on the Billboard charts in the 1990s, is set to play a show on U.S. soil for the first time in seven years – as part of a benefit concert hosted by Justin Timberlake.

"The Game" is not over yet.
Cable channel BET is in talks to order a new season of the comedy, a spinoff from the long-running "Girlfriends." The CW canceled "Game" in May after three seasons. Series creator Mara Brock Akil in April pitched CW an hourlong version of the show as a way of to keep it on the network, which was exiting the half-hour comedy business.
Following "Game's" cancellation, BET began preliminary talks with producer CBS Studios about possibly taking in the series with new originals. The cable network already runs repeats of both "Game" and "Girfriends." The options on the "Game" actors have lapsed, so if a deal is reached with BET, CBS Studios would have to make new pacts with them. BET's only previous stab at launching an original scripted series was the 2008 comedy "Somebodies," which ran for one season.
Jon Gosselin wouldn't mind punching the clock instead of appearing on a hit TLC reality show.
"I wish I had a 9 to 5 job instead of the nightmare I'm living. This is 24/7," he told Usmagazine.com outside his $1.1 million Pennsylvania home Monday. "I don't even want to do taping for the show anymore."
But Gosselin says he's stuck filming and doing promotional appearances to make as much money as possible. (A source also tells the current issue of Us Weekly that he's "suspicious" Kate is hiding cash ahead of their divorce proceedings. They make an estimated $75,000 per episode).
"I have two houses and eight children to take care of and I need to work," he told Us.
Later that day, Gosselin taped Jon & Kate Plus 8 with the kids at the Lower Heidelberg Fire Company in Berks County, Pa. The family threw a fundraising lemonade stand.
Gosselin smiled and posed with local young women while wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with "Lies, Lies, Lies, Lies" and big sunglasses.
A witness says the crew filmed the kids for about an hour playing with firemen, who showed off all their equipment.
Kristin Cavallari is a big fan of Heidi Pratt's Sunday night Miss Universe performance.
"I was really impressed," the Hills star told Usmagazine.com at a Nylon magazine party in West Hollywood Monday night. "It reminded me of Britney Spears at the VMAs -- whatever year that was -- when she ripped off her suit and was, like, nude with sparkles. She kind of looked like that."
Spears stripped down to a sparkly nude suit at the 2000 MTV VMAs for her performance of "Oops, I Did It Again." Montag -- who has said she wants to have a similar career as the singer -- showed off a sequin bra and matching nude pants for "Body Language."
Cavallari continued: "She looked like she'd put a lot of hard work into it, and it paid off."
Cavallari also dished on the next season of The Hills, which premieres Sept. 29 on MTV.
"There's going to be a little feud between Audrina [Patridge] and me over Justin [Bobby], a little love triangle," she said. "I like to have fun with it and play everything up. I mean, you've got to keep it interesting."

New Miss Universe says crown fulfills improbable goal
The Associated Press
The 2009 Miss Universe says her title fulfills a lifelong dream _ and an improbable one for a girl who finished last in one of her first beauty pageants.
Stefania Fernandez, an 18-year-old Venezuelan, said Monday in an interview with The Associated Press that despite the rocky start, she continued competing in order to keep busy.
"I don't like to be at home doing nothing," Fernandez said. "I entered the world of 'misses,' and by chance life kept rewarding me bit by bit."
She moved from her hometown of Merida to the city of San Cristobal two years ago to pursue her increasingly successful pageant career, which culminated Sunday night when she edged the runner-up from the Dominican Republic to become the new Miss Universe.
Fernandez's win made Venezuela the first country to claim the title two years in a row, after Dayana Mendoza was crowned in 2008. She is also the sixth Miss Universe from the beauty-obsessed South American nation.
"Imagine what this means to me," said Fernandez, who wore a flowing green summer dress and gold-hoop earrings to the interview. "I'm making history in my country."
She said she does not expect that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez _ who did not congratulate Mendoza last year _ will praise her as other leaders have done with winners from their countries. But perhaps fittingly for a beauty queen, she offered a diplomatic answer when asked her opinion of the socialist leader's policies.
"I think they are extreme measures, but I trust that little by little, Venezuelans will start understanding each other and try to make the country better. We are trying to communicate more with each other."
Fernandez will spend the next year traveling the world as an ambassador for the pageant, lending her celebrity to causes such as AIDS awareness.
Afterward she plans to go to college and specialize in communications, and is also interested in pursuing English and French.
"My house is covered with photos of me from Miss Venezuela and Miss Universe," Fernandez said. "But I promised my dad that my university degree would be up there too."

“At 29 years old, Kimberley Walsh is a true star in Britain,” the brand enthused in explanation of its choice. “With a look that’s half-rock, half-babydoll and a physique to rival Beyoncé, she is the pop phenomenon of recent years. ‘Girls Aloud’ is the biggest group in the UK at the moment and has already sold close to 5 million records around the world!”

Speaking of her forthcoming album, Ms. Aguilera told press, “I kind of had an idea for a futuristic feel for many years now, but I also had that idea that I wanted to do a soul, blues and jazz record also. But I knew I had to do that one first ... It’s always been in the back of my mind to do a more futuristic sound. But I felt like it couldn’t have been a better time or place for me personally also as a new mom.”

Twentieth Century Fox has sent a cease and desistletter to adult film studio Digital Sin/New Sensations, currently in post production on a parody of its television series “X-Files.” Their X-rated drama, set to release in late September of this year, was given a title “The X-Files: A Dark XXX Parody.”
In the letter, a representative from Fox demands that Digital Sin/New Sensations change the title of the film and cease use of the X-Files mark. Digital Sin/New Sensations does not believe that its intended product infringes the rights of Fox. However, in thespirit of cooperation, the Company has decided to respond to Fox's concerns by adapting the title to "The Sex Files: A Dark XXX Parody," removing the website associated with the film and changing the names of the main characters.
The adult studio has successfully parodied a growing list of the primetime line-ups from current and past, with spoofs of “The Office”, “Scrubs”, “Seinfeld”, “Friends” and “30 Rock” resulting in sales that have given a heartbeat to an otherwise slumping industry

When a new film from Quentin Tarantino is released, a film as original and awash in genre-geometry as Inglourious Basterds, the post-viewing sensation that follows remains difficult to describe. In Kill Bill Vol. 1, there is a scene set inside the House of Blue Leaves in which Uma Thurman’s Bride blinks and the film switches from black and white to color. A sizable light switch is then thrown by a yakuza. In seconds, the screen turns a cool midnight blue. At that moment the aural equivalent of digital goosebumps chimes unusually through the speakers. Now everything on screen appears the same but is different, renergized and alive. I remember watching this scene and realizing that it inexplicably captures how I feel after a QT film; the difference being that the sensation of a QT film is not flicked instantaneously; it spreads over the following weeks and months as if by a potent time-release capsule. In addition, as this sensation is occuring at a personal level, Tarantino’s characters and images are similarly infiltrating and titillating the collective mind of endless media, fellow cinephiles, and general moviegoers. Pop-culture synapses connect further until a single Tarantino character is loaded into the permanent highlight reel of a respective year, for film or otherwise. It’s the lysergic, symbiotic propaganda of a true genius.

MediaTakeOut.com received the following report - from a former co-worker of Amber's at Suez Rendezvous - a popular strip club in the Bronx, NY:
"I know for a fact Amber Rose had butt shots and lipo. I work at Suez stripclub in Ny and when she first came here she was wayyy bigger, had no ass, and was shaped funny.
She asked around and got in touch with the person that does the illegal butt shots for the girls here.
She used to be a sweetheart now she doesn't talk to anyone and acts like shes made it so big. She has never owned a car (still doesn't) and never had her own place.
She still stays with her mom a small shack in the south Philly ghetto. We all miss the Amber that used to hang at the gay raves, bum cigarettes, rides home, and shop at the thift stores.
A shame she can't even read or talk right. She's a naive pushover and Kanye just uses her for arm candy because she is not smart at all."

Khloe Kardashian’s radio co-host on E!’s Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami claims he doesn’t even remember the steamy kiss he shared with the reality star.
“We are just friends,” Terrence J tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Neither one of us remembers the kiss.”
It’s a forgotten moment for the host of BET’s highly-rated music video show “106 & Park” and co-host of “Khloe After Dark,” who says he’s in a relationship and he is “very much in love.”
Talking it over with Khloe he says, “We were trying to remember who kissed whom first and we have both agreed to agree that it was just a long night where we both had some drinks and shared a good time.”
He adds that although he was brought in to assist Khloe, 25, she is holding down her own on the airwaves. “Her radio skills are dope. She has an outgoing personality and she doesn’t hold her tongue. When she’s on the air she’s a blast to watch.”
On Khloe’s sister Kourtney’s baby news Terrence J notes: “The shows depict her and Scott [Disick] always having conflict but what you don’t see is that he is always cuddling Kourtney. Scott really loves her. I didn’t know she was pregnant when we were filming. I am really excited for both of them. I am also excited to buy them baby clothes.”

Former Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson is settling down – and so is her onetime costar Bridget Marquardt.
Marquardt and her boyfriend, horror film director Nick Carpenter, are cohabitating.
"We just moved in together," Marquardt told PEOPLE Monday at Nylon magazine's Fall TV & Fashion issue party. "It's mostly my stuff. I have like a whole storage unit. My room in the [Playboy] mansion was stock full, but in the house it just doesn't look [as big]. I don't have any furniture."
But hold off on buying the housewarming gift: First, Marquardt will throw a baby shower for Wilkinson on Sept. 9. As for how her former costar is handling married life and impending motherhood, Marquardt says she's noticed a major change.
"She's not the same girl," Marquardt says of Wilkinson, who is expecting a son with husband Hank Baskett. "She's matured so much, become much more responsible so much more domesticated."
And Marquardt is growing up, as well. The reality star, who has a passion for the color pink, says she and her beau have had to make a few compromises when it comes to decorating their home.
"It sounded like we had opposite tastes but then we started talking about it and found out how we can merge together," Marquardt says. "We found a style that we both liked that we improved on ... There are like three personalities – the personality of the house, and then each of us. I'm more girly but I also wanted to pull off the vintage, Hollywood glamour slightly circus style."

Seems fitting that Jennifer Aniston has been spotted holding hands with Gerard Butler. Friends of the actress say she pursues only guys who can keep her as high profile as possible.
"Jennifer won't date a normal guy," a source tells the current issue of Us Weekly of the 40-year-old actress.
"She goes after the hottest thing of the moment, what she knows will get her the most time in the spotlight," the insider continues.
Aniston is currently filming The Bounty Hunter with Gerard Butler, who starred in The Ugly Truth (which made $27 million in its opening weekend).
Before that, she pursued Bradley Cooper, who anchored The Hangover, which has earned more than $400 million worldwide since hitting theaters in June.
She's also dated John Mayer (who won five Grammys in 2009 alone), and of course was wed to Brad Pitt -- arguably the biggest star in Hollywood.source
Expect big changes when new episodes of The Hills and The City start up again on Sept. 29, moving from Monday nights to Tuesdays. The Hills will air at 10 p.m. (EST) followed by The City at 10:30 p.m. (EST).
Liz Gateley, senior vice president of series development for MTV and executive producer of both shows, tells PEOPLE that the new day is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the switch-ups.
Most notably, Kristin Cavallari has replaced Lauren Conrad on The Hills. “Kristin has brought new life to the show,” Gateley says. “She is the same Kristin we know and love — not afraid to mix things up. Her presence has really changed every dynamic within the cast, especially with Audrina [Patridge] and Justin Bobby.”
As for newlyweds Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, Gateley says they may be taking another big step in their relationship. “Heidi and Spencer are entering some interesting new territory of considering parenthood,” she says.
Over on the East Coast, Whitney Port may not be considering motherhood, but she will be dealing with a new boss.
“A lot has changed in The City,” Gateley says. “We shifted the focus of the show significantly from a relationship drama to a workplace drama. Olivia has a new job and an amazing new boss at Elle magazine. Whitney is focused a lot more on her work now that she’s single, and Kelly Cutrone — who I love — takes on a much bigger role in the show.”
But the focus on fashion remains the same. “The show feels much more like a reality Devil Wears Prada,” Gateley says. “Our whole shooting style changed. You’ll see much more action and less people sitting and talking, which was an intentional choice we made in making over the show. There are fireworks on the jobs constantly — it’s very exciting and fun to watch what it’s like to work in the world of New York fashion.”

Spotted: Chuck Bass sucking face with a dude!
It’s true! Multiple Gossip Girlinsiders confirm to me exclusively that the CW phenom is currently shooting an episode for its upcoming third season in which Ed Westwick’s legendary lothario kisses another man.
So who’s the lucky guy? And what are the circumstances surrounding the same-sex smooch? Keep reading for all the spoilery details…
First things first: Sorry to disappoint, but no, it’s not Chace Crawford. Westwick’s “romantic” interest is up-and-come Neal Bledsoe (CSI: NY, Guiding Light), who’s guest-starring in episode 6 as Josh Ellis, NYU’s head of freshman affairs. Since Josh is tasked with selecting an incoming student for the honor of delivering the freshman speech, he’s, shall we say, a person of interest to Blair. In fact, she’s so determined to snag the slot that she goes so far as to pimp out her boyfriend out to the gay guy in charge.
The catch? All you need to know is there is one. Oh, and wait until you hear what Chuck says to Blair following the lip-lock. (Must. Resist. Temptation. To. Spoil.)
It was only a matter of time before GG played the maybe-gay card with Chuck, who swung both ways in Cecily von Ziegesar’s Gossip Girl books.

Britney Spears has a new gig: Alzheimer’s research. Along with George Clooney, Bob Hope, and Albert Einstein, Spears (or, rather, her celebrity status) is helping fight Alzheimer’s by giving researchers a heads up as to who might develop the disease.
Even though Alzheimer’s disease is incurable, there are some treatments that can slow its progression once it’s diagnosed. The problem is that doctors can’t diagnose it until a patient is showing clear symptoms of the mental deterioration that comes along with disease-induced brain atrophy and neuronal loss. But Stephen Rao, a neurology researcher at the Cleveland Clinic, is using famous names like Britney Spears—along with less famous ones, like Thomas Fitzpatrick, Virginia Warfield, Joyce O’Neil, or George Lanfaire—to change that.

G-Dragon of Big Bang has been moving up fast on offline music album sales.
A YG Entertainment representative said on 25th August, “GDragon’s first solo album was released offline later than planned on 21st August. And the album sales as of until 24th is 100K. Currently we are still receiving orders for GDragon’s first solo album. We have ordered for another 200K copies to be manufactured at the factory." And on Hanteo chart G-Dragon’s first album has sold over 40K copies, and is the #1 album sales for the week of 18th August till 24th August. The reason to why the sales volume reported by Hanteo and YG Entertainment is different is that their methods of computing the album sales are different – Hanteo measures nationwide album sales while the entertainment company measures output volume.

UDPATE: Rihanna's attorney, Donald Etra, just said Rihanna did not object to the sentencing agreement. He said the stay away order was the decision of the court. He said he will not discuss their personal relationship.
He said the court explained to Rihanna how to modify the protective order. He said if Rihanna wants to change the protective order she knows how -- but he wouldn't say if she would pursue such a modification.
UPDATE: Public Information Officer Sandi Gibbons just said Chris' sentence was not a slap on the wrist. She said the judge is prepared to send him to prison if he messes up. She said Chris did not get special treatment.

One of the last hits from Aaliyah's all-too-brief career was the track "More Than a Woman," released posthumously from her self-titled third LP.
The song and the video both showcased Aaliyah Dana Haughton, then 22, at her finest: flirty, reserved, sultry and, most importantly, it left listeners and viewers with a palpable sense that there was indeed more to come from this talented artist. Unfortunately, her life was tragically cut short when a plane carrying her and her entourage crashed shortly after takeoff. Her death — which occurred exactly eight years ago — still feels like it happened entirely too soon.
Ever since the Detroit singer and dancer debuted in 1994 with Age Ain't Nothing But a Number, we all watched Aaliyah blossom. Her initial look of dark sunglasses and baggy clothes evolved into a more adult look on her next album, One In a Million. She was always beautiful, but later as a young woman she exuded the kind of appeal that was as sexy as a whisper in your ear — so subtle that it never had to be overtly pointed out.
She also possessed the type of talent and charisma that led many to believe her future was as bright as a supernova.

'New Moon' Stars Kristin Stewart, Taylor Lautner Discuss Killer Breakups
Taylor and Kristen sitting in a tree ... A-C-T-I-N-G?
Calling November's "New Moon" the one "Twilight" novel that "intimidated" her, Kristen Stewart knows that millions of fans will see the film in November to watch her make googly eyes at Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. But the most pleasant surprise of the sequel, she insists, will be watching the intense acting that the franchise stars had to employ to navigate Stephenie Meyer's complex love triangle.
In this exclusive interview, Kristen and Taylor talk to MTV about the Bella/Jacob relationship, some new scenes that were added to the script and the intense days on set that nearly "killed" KStew.

Amy Winehouse's mother Janis is devastated by reports claiming her daughter has been in touch with her soon-to-be ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, and insists she will pull back from her daughter's life if the pair get back together.
"The family will just say, ‘Enough is enough.’ We'd never turn our backs on Amy, but there'd have to come a point where we step back. I'm not sure how much more I could go through. Amy knows what we think of Blake so I suppose she's hiding it."
Janis and Amy's father Mitch blame Blake for Amy’s descent into drug addiction. Earlier this year, Amy spent several months in St. Lucia battling her demons and is now "clean and healthy." Her family are concerned rekindling her relationship with Blake could cause her to spiral out of control again, seeing as Amy is believed to have asked Blake to give their marriage another chance. Janis told Britain's Closer magazine:
"Amy's done so well getting healthy again. We all hope it's not true they're back in touch, but Amy is like a child. She says, 'I love Blake, I love him,' and it's hard to talk her out of it. She's bad for her. Who knows what will happen?"
Amy says she wants a baby but it's just talk. Amy doesn't weigh enough to get pregnant.
"The deal was that Lady GaGa and I would have one of my legendary pillow talks in bed. Minutes before our interview she suddenly devided pillow talks are not appropriate and so we ended up sitting at a table pretending to have breakfast. Her agent warned me not to talk about anything personal which explains my somewhat restrained demeanor. What was supposed to be a fun interview turned out rather subdued."

Ashlee Simpson-Wentz has said she doesn’t care if her son wants to follow her and husband Pete Wentz into show business.
Ashlee, 24, and husband Pete, 30, who is part of band Fall Out Boy, are parents to nine-month-old Bronx Mowgli.
She said: “I’m all about whatever it is Bronx likes to do and wants to do. Definitely going to follow what it is that he loves and hope to be a great parents in that way.”
Ashlee has recently joined the cast of the remake of Melrose Place and she said it’s good to have a mix of old cast members as well as new ones.
She said: “It’s great to have some of the old cast members but at the same time, it’s definitely a new show and hopefully we’ll entertain the previous Melrose Place fans.”
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. So when it comes to a style showdown between these two fashionistas, it’s all about mutual appreciation and matchy-matchy chic. When Diane Kruger appeared on It's On With Alexa Chung this week, we couldn’t help but notice her Urban Outfitters floral frock with ankle boots bore a striking resemblance to La Chung’s trademark style. But it doesn’t stop there. They’ve both worn the same white brocade Opening Ceremony dress in different ways and looking back, they're both working embellished shoulders and channelling Chanel together with paired-down hair and make-up. Looks like Diane and Alexa’s sartorial mirroring is set to stay, so here’s hoping more stars take note and follow suit. Although let’s face it, they’d both look great dressed bin liners. But what we really want to know is who gets your vote?

Although the September 4th release of the Chris Pine vehicle Carriers is still being described as "wide" by BoxOfficeMojo.com and RottenTomatoes.com, it looks like it might not be THAT wide after all. Fangoria is reporting that the pandemic thriller won't be going to at least two major metropolitan areas -- Los Angeles and New York, the two cities that often are the only places where films with limited releases DO show. According to the article, Carriers will open in several other major cities -- Atlanta, Charlotte, Denver, Detroit, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Portland and St. Louis -- with perhaps more to be named later. Still, you have to wonder if avoiding LA and NYC is an indication of the studio's lack of confidence in the film, especially since it's already sat on the shelf for some time (and would likely still be there if Pine hadn't scored the starring role in Star Trek).

In an exclusive interview Candy Spelling revealed to RadarOnline.com that she is going to have her very own television show. Even though the mother daughter duo have been famously estranged lately, Tori Spelling told us that her mom having her own show "would be great."
As the wife of television mogul Aaron Spelling, Candy is no stranger to hit shows. At the I'm Every Woman non-profit organization book signing on Saturday Candy talked about her possible foray into TV, saying "Yes, there is," going to be a show. But Candy is not following in her daughter Tori's footsteps - her show will be scripted. "I wouldn't do a reality show," the author of Stories from Candyland said.
Later Saturday night at the Much Love Animal Rescue & Secure-A-Pets Summer fundraiser, Bow Wow Wow of Howlywood, Tori was suprised by the news that her mom was going to have her own show but was supportive, saying "I wish her the best." Maybe a reconciliation between the two women isn't too far off?

Uh-oh — do we have a new celebrity feud on our hands?
After a slew of headlines suggesting there is trouble in the relationship, Angelina Jolie is lashing out at none other than Jennifer Aniston for her problems with beau Brad Pitt.
The 34-year-old actress apparently believes that Brad’s affinity for marijuana is due to his ex-wife.
“Angie traces Brad’s love of cannabis to when he was still with Jennifer Aniston,” a source is quoted as saying. “And she says it’s Jen’s fault Brad is still smoking pot, since the bulk of his drug-taking days were when he was with her. The whole of Hollywood knew these two were big pot lovers and Angie is convinced Brad is reminiscing over his time with Jen every time he lights up a joint.”
The insider goes on to add: “Of course, it’s a pretty irrational theory as Brad’s a grown man who can make his own decisions. But Angie’s angry and looking for someone to blame, so Jen is always going to be a prime target. Angie was forgiving about Brad’s alcohol consumption because she thought he wasn’t smoking pot any more. But now that Quentin Tarantino has confirmed that’s not the case, she realizes he’s partying hard when her back is turned.”
And while there are no plans to split, “Angie, feeling she’s been totally lied to, is piecing together all the other things Brad’s not been truthful to her about and come up with a fairly long list.”

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - A&E is moving forward with a reality series revolving around Michael Jackson's brothers.
The series' working title is "Jackson Family Dynasty." A&E's original one-hour documentary -- shot before the pop singer died in June -- will serve as the show's first episode.
A&E plans to launch the series this year, possibly fairly soon. The issue has been trying to find a time that seems appropriate given all the drama surrounding Jackson's death.
"Everybody wants to do a show that's very genuine," said executive producer Jodi Gomes of Point 7 Entertainment. "They're not shy about talking about their brother, they just want to find it a way to do it honestly."
Idk how I feel about this tbh. And for your time, here's a funny Billie Jean demo :
FASHION FORWARD: FASHION WEEK WITH MALAN BRETON
By Michelle Go
August 25, 2009
With New York Fashion Week just around the corner, fashion designer Malan Breton plans to kick off his show with style. His Spring 2010 imbues a creative journey back to his roots as a dancer, exploring elements of his childhood when he began performing at the age of seven. The inspiration for his spring collection comes from the strength and form of the image "Flight of Freedom," a black-and-white image of his friend Leigh Alderson from the Royal Ballet shot by Pritzel Photography.(www.pritzelphotography.com)
"I will have a 30-piece orchestra playing the show, the Chelsea Symphony," reveals Breton. "I wanted the show to feel like a night at the Hollywood Bowl or the Met, a night at the ballet."
Presented by Style 360 and Rado Switzerland, the show will take place at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan (Sept. 14th at 11 am) and will mark this fashion Einstein's first foray into menswear, further expanding the Malan Breton Collection. He has already dressed celebrities including Minnie Driver, Kylie Minogue, Nikki Blonsky, and Katrina Bowden and soon he will be dressing Hollywood's finest men.
Flight of Freedom by friend Leigh Alderson.
"The trends for this spring are strong and structural yet soft and fluid. Boy meets girl, but really celebrating the individual."
When asked how he has grown as a fashion designer since his days on Project Runway, Breton responds, "It taught me time management skills you could never imagine. It also gave me a window of opportunity. I am grateful for the experience."
So what is next for this promising fashion icon? He will be starring in two upcoming films - one entitled "My Guaranteed Student Loan" and the other yet to be announced - and a new reality show. He also plans to tap into feature film costuming, music, choreography, hair care, executive production, television, and so much more.

The THIRD chapter of Christopher Nolan's Caped Crusader's saga could very well be FULLY shot in IMAX, not IMAX Digital - but the beautiful, stunning IMAX that we saw pieces of THE DARK KNIGHT in.
Now this is something that I'm sure a lot of you will feel is a no-brainer. Nolan blew us away with the IMAX sequences in that film - but it was a very tough process to work in. Mainly due to the limitations of how many available real IMAX rigs there are. Not only that, but lenses had to be created, adapted and god forbid one broke down. Part of the reason that Nolan went forward with INCEPTION first - besides taking a creative break from the cape and cowl adventures... was possibly to create a few new IMAX cameras made to his specs. Once again - the cost of shooting an entire feature film on IMAX... the stock, the time it takes to reset, to load, to move the cameras... Well... it is daunting, but as Nolan proved with DARK KNIGHT - the difference is stunning.
