BBC to publish Being Human novels

The second season of Toby Whithouse's stellar Being Human premieres in the UK this Sunday, and if you're anything like me, you can't get enough of this show about three twenty-something housemates trying to live normal lives, despite the fact that one is a werewolf, one is a vampire, and the other is a ghost. If so, you're in luck because on February 4th three novels that tie in to Being Human are being released by BBC Books.

So who watched it tonight? What did you think? Russell Tovey and Sinead Keenan were pretty fucking epic. This season is going to be amazing.

Glee's Jane Lynch: Obama 'a Huge Disappointment' on Gay Rights

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Sue Sylvester calls it like she sees it, and so does Jane Lynch in a new interview with the UK Guardian.

Says Lynch of this year's gay rights battles: "Shouldn't there be safeguards against the majority voting on the rights of a minority? If people voted on civil rights in the 60s, it would have never happened. It took somebody like [President] Lyndon Johnson going, 'F all of you! I'm going to do this.' Obama won't do it. He's a huge disappointment to me."

Lynch also talks about growing up:

"I didn't know what 'gay' was in high school. We used the word 'queer' when someone was weird – when I finally heard what it really meant, my heart sank, and I thought, 'Oh God, that's me.'"

And gay actors being out in Hollywood:

"I think if I were an ingénue – if I were Kate Winslet – it probably would hurt my career, but because I'm Jane Lynch and I'm a character actor, the world isn't projecting their romantic fantasies on me."

So we all know that Tila Tequila has done lost her damn mind. I had no idea how crazy she was until this whole Casey Johnson thing personally but I guess I just wasn't paying attention. So Tila has a new "gossip" blog, TilasHotSpot, that she's been using to bash every person that has had something to say about her since Casey's death. Well today I decided to check it out and found this gem of an entry:

Hmm....where should I begin? Well last night I was on Twitter and I was just tweeting about random things and somehow one Tweet into the next it lead me into writing a mini auto-biography through 7 hours of Tweeting!!!!!!! I originally had no plans whatsoever on sharing such a private, emotional, and personal life story to the whole world....but somehow, someway......it ended up that way.  Everyone who read it was moved to tears and today a lot of people kept asking me where they could find that story.  So I have gathered all of my tweets from last night about it and pasted it all in one blog for u to read.  This has not been edited so it may not read correctly in a story format.  These are just all the tweets I tweeted so that's how it'll read. In little spurts of statements.....therefor.....leading you into a glimpse of my sad childhood growing up.  With that said, everyone has been so captivated that I have actually started to write an entire book about it!   I know people want to hear what happens next....so let's just say this is an "INTRO" to "TILA TEQUILA'S AUTO-BIOGRAPHY"  It's very painful for me to open up and share this with the world, but I'm a strong Woman today so I think it's time the world hears my story.  Here we go (remember these are in tweets I just copy & pasted from my profile):

Stuart Townsend Replaced in Thor

According to the Associated Press, Irish actor Stuart Townsend has left the production of Kenneth Branagh's Thor, in which he had been cast in the role of Fandral, one of the Warriors Three, over creative differences. He has already been replaced by virtual unknown Joshua Dallas, who recently appeared in the horror sequel The Descent: Part 2 (still unreleased in the States) and has a part in the George Lucas produced Red Tails.

The change in cast happened last week, just as the film was about to start shooting on Monday, and it's the second last minute replacement Townsend has faced, after being replaced by Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy in a similar situation.

Losing a battle with sobriety


A well known alcoholic with a history of drug abuse, depression and commitment issues AJ Mclean recently became engaged to a woman some may view as his enabler. One cannot forget that just under a year ago he relapsed outside of a club, as it was caught by TMZ. New pics have sufaced of the 2 drinking amongst a group of people in Vegas,and one can see that none of his bandmates or close family are there, only "new friends" and paid associates ( bodyguard-the guy that looks like Pitbull). AJ Mclean has a history of drug and alcohol abuse and has also publicly battled depresssion. These recent pics of him looking intoxicated could lead one to beleive that his new fiancee and those currently surrounding him are oblivious to what could possibly happen.

As of now none of his bandmates nor family members have commented on this. None were present for the event either. There have been no updates from bsb and his mother, father and stepfather remain eerily silent on the subject.

Fans and nonfans hope he gets better soon, becuase these pics are tragic. His sobriety and wellbeing at a time like this is what is most important.

Ke$ha Pens Song for Rihanna

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Pop’s hottest newcomer Ke$ha already has a No. 1 single with “Tik Tok,” and now she’s lending her songwriting talents to another superstar.

The 22-year-old singer, who released her debut album Animal last week, has penned a song for Rihanna. “I just wrote a song for Rihanna,” Ke$ha told BRAVO WebTV. While she didn’t divulge details, she did say that she “hopes” it will appear on RiRi’s next project.

Ke$ha sang the hook on Flo Rida’s chart-topper “Right Round.” Her songwriting credits include The Veronicas’ “This Love” and Miley Cyrus’ “The Time of Our Lives.”

Meanwhile, “Rude Boy” is slated to be the next single from Rihanna’s Rated R album, which is currently No. 14 on the Billboard 200.

Kristin Cavallari Relates to Jersey Shore’s The Situation

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Though she has allegiance to The Hills, Kristin Cavallari admits she’s smitten with another MTV show, Jersey Shore.

“I love it,” she said. “Is that bad that I love it?”

Cavallari says that if she were on Jersey Shore her nickname would be “the straight-up gangster” and her favorite character is Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.

“He’s the best,”
she told PEOPLE Saturday while celebrating her 23 birthday at Las Vegas Eve Nightclub and Eva Longoria’s Vegas restaurant Beso.

Maybe that’s because she can relate: Sorentino has his share of haters, Cavallari relishes her role as the resident bad girl on The Hills.

“I have a good time with it,” she said. “I can’t sit here and stress about my image on The Hills. I’d drive myself crazy.”

“I prefer to be the bad girl and have fun with it,”
she adds. “You know, it’s a job, let’s have fun with it.”

Tila Tequila "Frustrated" She's Not Invited to Casey Johnson's Funeral

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Tila Tequila has not been invited to her purported fiance Casey Johnson's funeral, set for this week, UsMagazine.com has learned.

A source close to the MTV reality star, 28, tells Us, "She wants so badly to go to the funeral, but nobody will give her the details or tell her anything. She is extremely frustrated, as what she shared with Casey was real and special. Nobody understood."

Over the weekend, Tila (real name: Tila Nguyen) told E! News: "I don't want to talk about the funeral. I wasn't allowed to go, and I am so upset. I can't sleep, and I am on suicide watch."

Tila has been engaged in a war of words with friends of Johnson, who accuse the reality star of using the baby oil heiress for media attention.

Tila has been firing back, saying that Johnson's family and friends never cared about her. Over the weekend, she Twittered: "The family cut Casey out for 5 years! They knew nothing about her except that she was sad...until she met me. LESBIAN MARRIAGE. Not accepted."

She seemed to be in better spirits by early Monday morning.

Tila Twittered that she was feeling "happy again" and planned to announce news about her record label that will help people.

Meanwhile, it appears that Johnson -- who was found dead Jan. 4 at age 30 -- hasn't been buried. RadarOnline reported that a funeral occurred Sunday, but sources close the family say she has not been laid to rest.

Parks and Recreation 2010 Winter TCA Tour

All day, as you can imagine, random panelists were asked about the late-night debacle. The funniest response, by about five miles, came from producer Greg Daniels during the panel about his comedy Parks & Recreation. Daniels and O'Brien are old pals, and he was asked what he'd advise his friend to do about NBC's offer of a 12:05 show. "I spoke to Conan yesterday," Daniels said, "and he and I agreed that the Parks and Rec panel at the TCA would be the most appropriate time and place to announce his plans."

Just call him Conan O'Flyin'
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The peacock ruffled Conan O'Brien's feathers -- and now he's ready to fly the coop.

The "Tonight Show" host feels like the redheaded stepchild of late-night TV after NBC's abrupt decision to cancel Jay Leno's 10 p.m. experiment after just five months -- and return the car-loving comic to O'Brien's coveted 11:35 p.m. slot.

"This level of sh- - -iness was not expected," one source said.

"He's done a great job for NBC. He moved his entire staff, he moved his family to LA. And five months later, they repay him like this?"

As it stands now, the source said, "Conan would be happier somewhere else."

The pompadoured host has "many options," including a move to Fox,
which for years has been looking to create its own late-night show.

In fact, he has already spoken with Fox, The Wall Street Journal's Web site reported last night.

From Celebslam.com:

Apparently forgetting about the existence of "pictures" and "video," Sharon Stone continues to deny that she's ever had any work done. She told Tatler magazine:
"I have had zero, nothing done to myself: no lifting, no Botox, no injectables. I did try something once and I saw myself in a movie and didn't like the way I looked. I thought I looked like I had a giant balloon head, and I felt it wasn't for me.

"I think everyone here (in Los Angeles) looks like everyone else. It's goldfish number one, two and three, and I didn't want to be goldfish number four. I'm not saying I might not do a little something later on but it's just not me now.

"(I prefer to maintain my looks) the old-fashioned way - to go to the gym and take care of your internal life. I'm not one of those ladies who won't say their age. I'm very grateful for it. We get different faces as we go through our lives. If you try to hang on to the face you had when you were younger, you end up desperate. I'm happy with the way I am now, with this 51-year-old person."
Now I'm not gonna accuse Sharon of lying about having plastic surgery, but I heard the last time she flew to Europe, security made her check her tits.

Metal Gear Movie Shot Down

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Can I be honest? I actually had completely forgotten that a "Metal Gear Solid" film was even being discussed in an obscure boardroom somewhere on the Left Coast. That is up until I just read an article this morning that a possible film is no longer an option. In an exclusive interview with producer Mike Deluca, Collider reveals that the project has hit the virtual wall. Despite Sony's best efforts to get this project off the ground, the video game company (Konami) might have been the biggest obstacle.

“[T]he video game companies are very protective of their property and there are certain things a studio requires freedom-wise to market and distribute a movie effectively in a global marketplace and sometimes getting those two things to match up is really hard. And in the case of Metal Gear Solid, the agendas just….not because the parties weren’t amicable, it was just kind of impossible to get the agendas to match up.”

Am I alone in the thinking that this might be a good thing? Although I have really enjoyed playing Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear series, I'm not sure I really want to see the exploits of Solid Snake on film. I'm sure there is a worthy movie that could possibly be squeezed from the source material, but you wonder if the risk is worth the reward. I'm sure if Sony really wanted to get this going they could wave the magic wand and make it happen.

The performance of movies based on video games is shaky at best anywhow. The 90's was ripe with bad translations of video games to the big screen with such winners as; "Super Mario Bros", "Street Fighter" and some "Mortal Kombat" films. The 2000's brought "Tomb Raider" and "Resident Evil", which were much better entries in the genre but still didn't help convince the general public or the studios that the video game genre has enough merit.

Ronan Keating: 'I'll Never Forgive Radiohead's Thom Yorke For Being Rude'

Former Boyzone singer Ronan Keating has reignited his attack on “incredibly rude” Radiohead singer Thom Yorke saying he'll “never forgive him.”

Back in 2008 Keating bumped into Yorke at Dublin's Clarence Hotel, owned by Bono and The Edge, where he alleges Yorke was discourteous.

At the time, he bleated: “We were at the same hotel in Dublin and I went over to say hello as I'm a big Radiohead fan and he just blanked me. I still love the music - he's just an idiot.”

Echoing the sentiment some 15 months on, Keating moaned to The Guardian yesterday: "He (Yorke) was incredibly rude and I will never forgive him.

"I was a big Radiohead fan and I still really like the music. I went up and said hello and he just grunted and walked off. I thought, whatever, God love you."

Keating was being interviewed ahead of his newly launched DJ slot with London music station Magic 105.4 where he will be no doubt giving Radiohead a wide berth.

It seems like he's still crying on the inside.

Eric Rohmer, New Wave Filmmaker, Dies at 89

Eric Rohmer, the French critic and filmmaker who was one of the founding figures of the internationally influential movement that became known as the French New Wave, and the director of more than 50 films for theaters and television, including the Oscar-nominated “My Night at Maud’s” (1969), died on Monday. He was 89.

Aesthetically, Mr. Rohmer was perhaps the most conservative member of the group of aggressive young critics who purveyed their writings for publications like Arts and Les Cahiers du Cinéma into careers as filmmakers beginning in the late 1950s. A former novelist and teacher of French and German literature, Mr. Rohmer emphasized the spoken and written word in his films at a time when tastes — thanks in no small part to his own pioneering writing on Alfred Hitchcock and Howard Hawks — had begun to shift from literary adaptations to genre films grounded in strong visual styles.

His most famous film in America remains “My Night at Maud’s,” a 1969 black-and-white feature set in the grim industrial city of Clermont-Ferrand. It tells the story of a shy, young engineer (Jean-Louis Trintignant) who passes a snow-bound evening in the home of an attractive, free-thinking divorcée (Françoise Fabian). Collapse )

Internet Kills Taylor Lautner in Latest Death Hoax

This is just dead wrong.

In a career milestone achieved by only a select few (and Jaleel White), Twilight Saga star Taylor Lautner has become the victim of his very own Internet death hoax.

Take that, Robert Pattinson.

No, Lautner's not really dead. A rep for Summit Entertainment tells E! News, "I am almost 100-percent positive this is a hoax."

Besides, unless our favorite werewolf doubles as a zombie, he'll be presenting in the flesh at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, organizers announced today.

But it's kind of an Interweb honor...

It wasn't that long ago the onetime Sharkboy was fighting to keep his New Moon role, and now he's a chiseled cinema stud who will soon be starring with (fellow death hoax victim) Tom Cruise. And that can only mean one thing: Some knucklehead had to go and claim Lautner's gone to that great wolf pack in the sky.

At least they gave him a unique demise. Unlike many others, Lautner didn't "die" at the hands of an infamous New Zealand cliff. Some so-called reports accused the 17-year-old of a cocaine overdose.

It's not so bad. Joining such undead luminaries as Matt Damon, Tom Hanks, Miley Cyrus and even Twilight scribe Stephenie Meyer, Lautner can count himself in elite company.

That is, if he doesn't get too hung up on Jeff Goldblum, Sinbad and Urkel being there, too.

V.G.B.B. Loves Gay Rumors About Himself

Bradley Cooper happy with gay rumours

Hangover star Bradley Cooper says he loved reading rumours that he was in a gay relationship with his actor friend Victor Garber.

Cooper, who is dating Renee Zellweger, is amazed at how much of what is written about him is untrue, reports newsblaze.com.

"People thought we were dating. It was all over the Internet. It was the first time I read a rumour like that about me, and I just thought it was fantastic," he said.

Cooper has always denied claims he is homosexual and insists he is very happy with his 40-year-old actress girlfriend who he "really likes very much".


Sam UNFington wasn't always a bad boy


HERE’S Avatar star Sam Worthington as a long-haired teenager looking very different to the clean-shaven hunk who’s about to become Hollywood’s latest A lister.

Sam was aged just 17 when he played tough guy Bill Sykes in a college production of the musical Oliver! in a performance described as “electrifying” by the play’s director.

And when these photos were taken in 1993 he had long hair, much different to the crew-cut look he has in Avatar and the Terminator: Salvation movie released earlier in the year.

Back in 1993 he was also vice-president of his college’s student representative council, not exactly the bad-boy he would want fans to think.

He is also surrounded by pretty girls in the photos but fellow students remember him as being too studious to have time for a girlfriend.

Mel Gibson: 'I Feel Sorry for Tiger Woods'

Mel Gibson, who endured one of the bigger Hollywood scandals of recent years, says the Tiger Woods affair has been blown way out of proportion – but that it wouldn't do the golfer any good to whine about that now.

"I feel sorry for Tiger Woods," the actor-filmmaker, 54, tells Britain's Daily Mail. "Why are we talking about this when we're sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan? … He's being used as a diversion, and it just drives me crazy."


TOO BAD: Lewis Hamilton & Nicole Scherzinger NO MORE

Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton have split up.

The Pussycat Dolls star and her 25-year-old British racing driver lover have ended their 20-month romance because they want to "focus fully" on their own careers.

A statement from their spokesperson said: "They have decided to go their separate ways. They want to focus fully on their careers and will remain close friends."

Friends of the famous couple are shocked because Nicole and Lewis loved each other implicitly and were very happy.

One told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It's sad because they did love each other. When you saw them trackside together they were always laughing and Nicole would give him a little peck on the cheek before the race. But they had to be realistic.

"There was no way they would continue their careers and stay together – it was too stressful. No one else is involved – their careers just got in the way."

In December, it was reported the couple hadn't seen each other in almost a month and even scrapped plans to spend Christmas Day together.

At the time, a source said: "Lewis and Nicole have had a few problems for a while now. They love each other dearly but have incredibly busy schedules.

"Hopefully after a month apart, they will come to their senses and give things another go."

Lewis – who lives in Switzerland, while Nicole is based in Los Angeles – has previously blasted speculation their relationship was in trouble.

The Formula One ace said: "This is bulls**t. We are still together."

The couple first met at the MTV Europe Music Awards in November 2007 and started dating in May 2008.

The sci-fi tales "Avatar" and "Star Trek," the comedy "The Hangover" and the recession-era story "Up in the Air" were among nominees announced Monday for best screenplay from the Writers Guild of America.

Writer-director James Cameron's "Avatar" and "The Hangover," written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, were nominated for original screenplay.

They are up against Mark Boal for the Iraq War saga "The Hurt Locker," Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber for the romance "(500) Days of Summer," and Joel and Ethan Coen for their 1960s comic drama "A Serious Man."

"Star Trek" collaborators Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman are competing for adapted screenplay against "Up in the Air" writer-director Jason Reitman and co-writer Sheldon Turner.

Also nominated are Scott Cooper for the country music tale "Crazy Heart," Nora Ephron for her Julia Child story "Julie & Julia," and Geoffrey Fletcher for the Harlem drama "Precious: Based on the Novel `Push' By Sapphire."

The guild honors potentially give a boost for the films' prospects at the Academy Awards, where screenplay nominations are chosen by the writers branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Oscar nominations come out Feb. 2.

Among documentary nominees were Michael Moore for his recession study "Capitalism: A Love Story," and Chris Rock and co-writers Jeff Stilson, Lance Crouther and Chuck Sklar for "Good Hair," a look at black-hair culture.

Other documentary nominees were Richard Trank for "Against the Tide"; Mark Monroe for "The Cove"; Robert Stone for "Earth Days"; and Bill Guttentag and Dan Sturman for "Soundtrack for a Revolution."

The guild presents its awards Feb. 20 in simultaneous ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York City.

Star Trek sequel confirmed for June 29th, 2012

UPDATE: Paramount has confirmed to MTV that the projected release date for the "Star Trek" sequel is indeed June 29, 2012.

This counts as news, but there's not much to it. We all know there's a "Star Trek" sequel coming. Hell, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, writers/producers of the May reboot, were talking about sequel possibilities as far back as the week after the first movie came out. Now we have a date to pin our hopes to: June 29, 2012.

Nothing else is known or announced, so don't ask. Maybe director J.J. Abrams will return to helm the sequel, maybe he won't. Maybe Khan will be the villain, maybe not. For all we know, the plan is to give us an epic "Star Trek Meets Star Wars" crossover. Could happen, right?

The news comes from a variety of sources, including Ain't It Cool News and Box Office Mojo, but there's no Paramount-issued press release that I can find. The information ran through some trustworthy sources, but we've yet to receive comment from the studio directly.

Regardless, there really hasn't ever been any doubt that we'd be seeing more "Star Trek." Abrams' take on the series made it friendly to an entirely new, much wider audience than its ever known before.

Breaking Dawn stuff: SMeyer doesn't want two films; CGI Renesmee?

I know two stories in one is weird, but they're related--

It's a new year, a new decade, and time for more "Twilight" drama! Surprisingly enough, this time it doesn't involve any of the cast members or crew, but instead the big moguls behind the series itself. E! Online's Ted Casablanca reports news from his Deep Twi that Stephenie Meyer and Summit Entertainment still having disputes over whether "Breaking Dawn" should be one film or two, which is what is causing production on the final installment of the film series to be at a standstill.

"Both sides have very different agendas," Ted reports his mole as saying.

Apparently Stephenie doesn't think two movies is the right thing to do "creatively" for the series (and neither do we), while Summit wants to milk its cash cow for all it's worth. Things haven't gotten dirty yet, but the way "Deep Twi" describes it, all the pressure is on Stephenie.

"They keep trying to persuade her it's the right thing to do artistically. They're constantly waiting for her input," the source is reported to have said.

At this time last year, after the success of "Twilight," shooting for "New Moon" was already underway and a director for "Eclipse" was being picked. Now, "New Moon" has already been released and "Eclipse" is in the editing room, but there hasn't even been a director picked out for "Breaking Dawn." "Eclipse" is set to hit theaters in five months, and if some major steps haven't been made in film production by then, Summit and Stephenie are going to have a lot of angry, anxious fans on their hands.


There have been a myriad of jokes thrown towards The Twilight Saga, but I doubt any will match the response that will surely be lodged when and if Breaking Dawn makes it to the big screen. The LA Times talked with Twilight Saga producer Wyck Godfrey about how on earth they could possibly make the final installment into a movie, and he lodged his ... rather interesting thoughts.

Simon Cowell is leaving "American Idol"

Fox execs and Cowell himself on Monday confirmed the acerbic judge's decision to exit the hit talent competish in order to help launch his long-awaited U.S. version of Brit TV sensation "The X Factor."

As now planned, "X Factor" will bow in fall 2011 on Fox , which means Cowell will be off the air for 16 months.

The real drama this season on "American Idol," even before its bow, has centered on the fate of Cowell.

The show is locked on Fox through at least 2011, but Cowell's megabucks deal with it expires at the end of this season.

At stake, of course, is the future of "Idol," perhaps the most important TV franchise in history.

"We reached an agreement formally at about half past 10 this morning," said Cowell, who signed his deal in front of critics at the TV Critics Assn. press tour. "Where we have come to and agreed is that X Factor will launch in America in 2011, with me judging the show and exec producing the show. Because of that this will be my last season on 'American Idol,' this year."

Spider-man 4 continues to be WTF-y: Malkovich confirms Vulture, kind of

With all the bad rumors plaguing Spider-Man 4, it's time for a little good news, don't you think? And some very good news has come from the mouth of John Malkovich himself. In an appearance on Italian sports show Quelli Che il Calcio, Malkovich confirmed that he had been asked to play Vulture in Spider-Man 4. Movieline first broke that rumor last month, along with the rumor that Anne Hathaway might show up as Black Cat.

BadTaste.it transcribed the conversation (if you're Italian is good, you can read it there) and reports that Malkovich didn't declare he was taking the role, but that he was waiting on the final script. He's definitely interested, though, and hopes that shooting will get back on track.

Of course, this all depends as to whether Vulture can hang onto the villain status. That's who Sam Raimi wants for #4, but Sony reportedly wants Carnage. The debate over who Spidey will battle is what has continued to hold up the film, and could become so drastic as to see a change-up in the director's chair. Tobey Maguire didn't give any indication as to which way the battle was heading when he spoke to The Envelope on Thursday. "Like anything, it's a process. We're just in the midst of the process. We have a lot of great stuff in terms of story and script. We're just trying to dial it in and get it ready as quickly as possible. Of course, these movies are a very big undertaking and take a lot more time than a drama or something more straightforward ... Not only do I have specific ideas, but the ideas are evolving on the page." Will that evolution include Vulture and Malkovich? Let's hope Sony's spidey senses tingle in the right way, and let Raimi have the villain he wants.

Oh, for God's sake, just let it die.

French English Red Band Trailer for "Chloe" Finally Here
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

You gotta love the French. Sure, they have their faults, but they also have no problem with nudity, which is why we are getting our first look at Amanda Seyfried nude in the trailer for Chloe. Of course, if this was the American trailer, there wouldn't be any nudity at all, but since it's the French trailer...

“Catherine and David, she a doctor, he a professor, are at first glance the perfect couple. Happily married with a talented teenage son, they appear to have an idyllic life. But when David misses a flight and his surprise birthday party, Catherine’s long simmering suspicions rise to the surface. Suspecting infidelity, she decides to hire an escort to seduce her husband and test his loyalty. Catherine finds herself ‘directing’ Chloe’s encounters with David, and Chloe’s end of the bargain is to report back, the descriptions becoming increasingly graphic as the meetings multiply.”

Chloe arrives in the U.S. on March 19, 2010.

Audiences experience 'Avatar' blues

James Cameron's completely immersive spectacle "Avatar" may have been a little too real for some fans who say they have experienced depression and suicidal thoughts after seeing the film because they long to enjoy the beauty of the alien world Pandora.

On the fan forum site "Avatar Forums," a topic thread entitled "Ways to cope with the depression of the dream of Pandora being intangible," has received more than 1,000 posts from people experiencing depression and fans trying to help them cope. The topic became so popular last month that forum administrator Philippe Baghdassarian had to create a second thread so people could continue to post their confused feelings about the movie.

The Simpsons vs Family Guy Feud Continues

Was ‘Simpsons’ Episode Edited to Spare Seth MacFarlane’s Feelings?

Someone get Chief Wiggum on the case! A special 20th anniversary episode of “The Simpsons” ended with a thank-you message from the show’s producers to viewers, but appeared to omit a joke at the expense of their Fox colleague and sometime-rival Seth MacFarlane.

The episode, which was broadcast on Sunday, ended with an on-screen display that read, “Thanks for 20 wonderful years. The best is yet to come.” But in a version of the show that was sent in advance to critics, the message read slightly differently:
as Alessandra Stanley noted in her review of the episode, it said, “Thanks for 20 wonderful years. Now stay tuned for three Seth MacFarlane shows.”

Mr. MacFarlane, the producer of the Fox animated series
“Family Guy,” “The Cleveland Show” and “American Dad,” has occasionally been the target of jokes on “The Simpsons,” whose writers have skewered him for creating programs similar to theirs. Mr. MacFarlane has often said that “The Simpsons” helped inspire him to create “Family Guy,” and was one of many celebrities who offered testimonials to “The Simpsons” in a documentary that followed the anniversary episode on Sunday night.

A Fox spokeswoman said that the “Simpsons” episode given to reporters and critics was a rough cut and that show elements are often added and taken out before broadcast.


Who watched the special last night? The most brilliant part were characters being named after streets in Portland.

Mark McGwire finally came clean Monday, admitting he used steroids when he broke baseball’s home run record in 1998.

McGwire said in a statement sent to The Associated Press on Monday that he used steroids on and off for nearly a decade.

“I wish I had never touched steroids,” McGwire said in a statement. “It was foolish and it was a mistake. I truly apologize. Looking back, I wish I had never played during the steroid era.”
McGwire also used human growth hormone, a person close to McGwire said, speaking on condition of anonymity because McGwire didn’t include that detail in his statement.

Another NoH8 Ad

…Is former MTV host La La Vazquez who just shot a campaign for NoH8. NoH8 is a photo project created by photographer Adam Bouska as a silent protest against the passage of the Proposition 8 ban of same sex marriages.

In other news, La La has also been cast alongside 50 Cent in his new movie “Gun” and is producing a reality show titled “Love & Basketball” that follows three NBA players looking for love. She tells Necolebitchie.com:

The show “Love & Basketball” is taking three SINGLE NBA basketball players that are “looking for love” and sending them on a series of dates and situations with interesting women. The goal of this show is to highlight the “type” of women that go after the athlete. I thought it would be fun because we all know that some of “those women” are a unique and interesting group. The NBA players we are using are HIGH profile yet they are SINGLE, so it will be intriguing to watch the lengths the contestants will go through to be with a baller. However there are extremely successful and career-driven women that end up dating professional athletes as well.

The project is a collaboration between La La and Carmelo’s Krossover Productions and Simmons-Lathans Productions (Russell Simmons & Stan Lathans).

Megan Fox, Michael Fassbender, Josh Brolin And John Malkovich To Re-Unite For Additional Filming On Jonah Hex.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Josh Brolin, John Malkovich, Megan Fox and Michael Fassbender will reunite later this month for about 10 days' worth of filming in the Los Angeles area.

Although no test screenings have taken place, Warner Bros. has added 12 pages to the script and decided to re-shoot some scenes.

"Jonah Hex" is based on the DC Comics comic book, a Western featuring a scarred-faced bounty hunter. The movie centers on the gunslinger enlisted to track down a former Confederate general who is raising an army of the undead and bent on liberating the South.

Jimmy Hayward, who made his live-action debut with the movie, remains in the director's chair. He will be joined by Francis Lawrence ("I Am Legend"), who was brought in last month to act as a consultant.

The movie originally was scheduled to open August 6, 2010, but was then moved up to June 18 -- the middle of the summer tentpole season.

"Crank" filmmakers Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, who wrote the "Hex" script, were initially on board to direct the movie but were dismissed because of creative differences with Brolin. The actor told MTV News at the time he thought the script was "awful" but fell in love with the challenge of doing "the most awful movie I can find" if he could put the people he wanted into key positions.

After downing vodka cocktails in the Stingaree's VIP area, he closed down the club around 2 a.m.

Prior to becoming engaged to Busson, Thurman dated Andre Balazs from 2004 to 2006.

Uma, 39, has two children with Ethan Hawke, her husband from 1998-2004.

Busson, 38, shares two sons with his former girlfriend, supermodel Elle Macpherson.

Miep Gies who helped hide Anne Frank dies at 100

The last surviving member of a group who helped to shelter Anne Frank and her family from the Nazis in Amsterdam died last night.

Miep Gies, the woman who rescued Anne's diary after the family was arrested in 1944, died at a Dutch nursing home aged 100 after suffering a fall.

Mrs Gies and several other employees of Anne’s father provided food and other necessities to the Jewish family while they hid in a concealed apartment.

During the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands she had spent 25 months in hiding with her sister, parents, and four other Jewish people in the attic above her father’s office.

Their hide-out was raided on August 4, 1944, and they were sent to concentration camps. Anne Frank died of typhus in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in March 1945, aged 15. Only Anne’s father, Otto, survived. Mrs Gies, who found the diary, gave it to the girl’s father.

The Diary of Anne Frank, the poignant journal in which the Jewish teenager chronicled her days in the attic, was published in 1947.

Mrs Gies became an ambassador for the diary, traveling to talk about Anne and campaigning against Holocaust denial. Speaking last year as she celebrated her 100th birthday, Mrs Gies played down her role, saying others had done far more to protect Jews in the Netherlands.


wasn't sure if this counts as "celeb news" but she was a very important lady who risked her life to help others and no need for the "FUCK U 2010" comments. she lived a long, full life :)

Sandra Bullock smashes through $200m glass ceiling at U.S. box office with 'Blind Side'

Sandra Bullock has smashed through the $200 million glass ceiling with her role in the football mega hit "The Blind Side."

Industry bible Variety says "The Blind Side" is the first movie EVER "driven solely by a top female star" to break $200 million at the American box office.

To put this in perspective neither Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Angelina Jolie or Reese Witherspoon were ever able to crack the $200m million mark at the domestic box office.

Julia Roberts' "Erin Brockovich" made $125.6 million at home while Meryl Streep's "The Devil Wears Prada," earned $124.7 million.

A man (of course!) in charge of propheting profits at Warner Bros said the movie could pull in even more.

President of Domestic Distribution Dan Fellman said: "And we're not even done. I think 'Blind Side' has another $30 million left,"

All in all, Bullock's films have grossed an amazing $1.72 billion domestically.

Michael Jackson was murdered.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

MICHAEL Jackson's death certificate rules he WAS murdered, the News of the World can reveal.

We obtained a copy of the document and an amendment to it - that have never been published.
On the original July 7 certificate deputy coroner Cheryl MacWillie refuses to give a cause of death.

But after further probes, it is amended on August 31 by medical examiner Christopher Rogers to "homicide".
He concludes Jacko died from "acute Propofol intoxication" due to an "intra-venous injection by another".
Meanwhile Jacko's doctor Conrad Murray, 56, has hired a hotshot lawyer in case he is charged over the June 25 death.

Hollywood legal eagle Michael Flanagan saved a nurse from a murder charge when she was accused of wrongly administering painkiller Propofol.
Murray already has a Houston law firm building his defence. Police affidavits say he admitted loading up Jacko, 50, with Propofol and other drugs in the hours before his death.
The prosecution is likely to use lawyer Patrick Dixon, who helped put Phil Spector behind bars.

But yesterday a Jackson family source said: "We are all keeping our faith with the police. We want them to do this case properly and put away the man who we feel is responsible for Michael's death.


"We want the authorities though to release details of what happened to Michael in his last few hours. We want the paperwork to come out to show just what drugs were put inside him and what happened in his last few hours alive.
"Much of the documentation has been kept secret - and we can't understand it.
"We still feel that there is more than one person responsible for Michael's tragic death. Joe won't give up on getting justice for his son and a lawuit is his focus."
Last night a coroners office worker explained the void branding on the forms was issued by the health authority which holds the documents. They brand forms like this to avoid them from being used for fraudulent purposes.

The right-wing politico has joined the fair and balanced network in a multiyear deal that will see the GOP's 2008 V.P. nominee offer her political commentary and analysis across all Fox News platforms, but which will not (and Oprah can exhale now) see her hosting her own talk show.
Not exactly, anyway.

"I am thrilled to be joining the great talent and management team at Fox News," Palin said. "It's wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news."

In addition to contributing to Fox News, she'll also lend her mavericky political opinions and (we can only hope) equally roguish take on geography to the Fox Business Channel, FoxNews.com and Fox News Radio, as well as participating in the network's special event programming and periodically hosting the forthcoming series Real American Stories.

And to think, just 14 months ago, she didn't even have one platform to stand on, let alone however many Fox is providing her with. She's come a long way, baby.

I can see the source from my house!

Starting today through February 22nd, fans of CSI: MIAMI can log on to the contest site to upload a 30-second or less video clip of themselves delivering the most memorable Horatio Caine one-liners from the show.

"Ever since we created Horatio, the fans have been passionate about the character, sunglasses and all," says David Caruso. "For years, everyone from Jim Carrey to Laurence Fishburne has tried to do their best imitation of him but I think the fans are the ones who get it right. Now is the chance for them to showcase their best."

"Even in his eighth season, the character of Horatio Caine continues to be a major fan favorite on CBS.com," says Joe Ferreira, SVP, Network and Studio Liaison at CBS Interactive.

My girl lands a deal with Avon

Zoe Saldana plays blue-skinned Neytiri in "Avatar," which has racked up more than $1 billion worldwide. Now her natural visage is being put to good use -- I've learned that Saldana will join cosmetics company Avon as a brand ambassador.

"She's thrilled," a source close to the deal tells me.

She's also in good company. Saldana will join other stars aligned with the brand, including Fergie, Reese Witherspoon, Patrick Dempsey, Courteney Cox-Arquette, Salma Hayek and Derek Jeter.

Reps for Saldana did not return requests for comment. An Avon rep was unavailable at press time.

With her success in the "Star Trek" update, 2009 was kind to Saldana, and she shows no signs of slowing this year: She's poised to release several major films, including director Neil LaBute's take on "Death at a Funeral"; the 2010 version costars Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence and James Marsden.

Jerry Seinfeld to star in new TV show 'The Marriage Ref'

Jerry Seinfeld, the comedian, is returning to US television screens after 12 years with a show about marriage.

His new show, called "The Marriage Ref", will start in March on NBC and will feature fighting couples who will then have their issues judged by a celebrity panel.
Seinfeld will executive produce and appear on the panel. Actors Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, Eva Longoria and Larry David are among other celebrities who will appear.

Fights already filmed for the show include a husband who enrages his wife by parking a motorcycle in their living room, and a couple who argue about whether to have their dead dog stuffed.
Seinfeld, 55, describes it as a combination of reality show, game show and comedy with no big prizes for its feuding contestant couples.
He said: "Our entire drive is to try and make you laugh. After 10 years of marriage I have discovered the comedic potential of this subject is quite rich."

Breaking Bad returns on March 21!

On March 21, Breaking Bad is back. That's right, AMC is bringing back one of the best dramas on television that's not Mad Men when Breaking Bad returns for Season Three with an episode starring and directed by Emmy-winner Bryan Cranston.

The episode, "No Mas," means "No More" in Spanish and it will be interesting to see how creator Vince Gilligan picks up the threads from the Season Two finale. For fans of the show, that means we're finally going to know what's happened to Walter during and after the spoilerplane crash. That's just an assumption because when it comes to Breaking Bad, you're never truly sure what's going to happen next.

In anticipation of the Season Three premiere, on March 19, at 8 p.m., AMC will show a Breaking Bad marathon featuring six of the shows best episodes. That's not all. AMC On Demand will be showing all of Season Two beginning in February.

Online there will also be exclusive Breaking Bad features for devotees. A "Top 10 Baddest Moments" will be a video countdown of the more outrageous scenes from the show thus far (the bathtub scene, no doubt), as well as an interactive graphic novel game and new webisodes. Naturally, there will also be photos, clips and behind the scenes stuff, too. Can't wait!

Amanda Seyfried fully naked in 'Chloe' (NSFW caps)

You gotta love the French. Sure, they have their faults, but they also have no problem with nudity, which is why we are getting our first look at Amanda Seyfried nude in the trailer for Chloe. Of course, if this was the American trailer, there wouldn't be any nudity at all, but since it's the French trailer, not only is there nudity, but we even get to see Amanda Seyfried's nipple! Yeah, this is going to be a good movie. Especially the lesbian love scene between Amanda and Julianne Moore.

Paris Hilton's sex tape leads to man's arrest

Clearly not of the soundest mind, William Anthony Ziemba was arrested after a 14-year-old told police she watched the infamous Paris Hilton sex tape with him.

With the alleged victim 13-years-old at the time, she also claims to have smoked marijuana with 36-year-old Ziemba, according to the Palm Beach Post.

The report goes on to tell that the victim said she had asked him about pornography out of curiosity - with Ziemba admitting to watching the video and smoking marijuana - though he denied any inappropriate touching in contrast to the victim stating that he ‘slapped and pinched’ her backside and called her ‘sexy’.

Ziemba has been arrested on charges including exposing child to an obscene motion picture, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, battery, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.


USA is officially the crime channel

"CSI" has found a new offnet home at USA Network.

Beginning in December, cabler will have non-exclusive rights to the popular CBS crime drama for seasons one through 10. In fall 2011, USA will have exclusive rights for seasons 11 and beyond.

Starting in September 2014, the entire "CSI" catalog will be exclusive to not only USA, but the entire NBC Universal portfolio.

"CSI" is distributed through CBS Television Distribution.

Spike TV airs offnet episodes of "CSI," and its deal expires in September 2014.

USA Network will reportedly pay approximately $500,000 per episode, a healthy amount considering this is a second offnet cycle for many of the episodes.

"We're proud to add one of the most successful television series of the last 20 years to our programming slate," said Jane Blaney, USA's exec VP of program acquisitions and scheduling.

Net has a plentiful offnet lineup that includes "NCIS," "Law and Order: SVU," "Law and Order: Criminal Intent" and "House." Spinoff "NCIS: Los Angeles" is also set to make USA its syndie home.With a lineup of originals that continues to set ratings high, USA was No. 1 basic cable network in 2009 in the 18-49 demo, increasing 29% from 2008.

"Royal Pains" and "White Collar" both had successful launches last year, while "Burn Notice" drew 7.1 million per episodes, the second-highest basic show behind TNT's "The Closer."


Miley Cyrus slams paparazzi on official site

Miley Cyrus is getting sick of being followed by the swarms of paparazzi that seem to invade her life. She’s taken to her official website to blast the snappers for following her so relentlessly.

She said:

Honestly I am so over these photographers! I went to the salon to visit my buddy Scott and bring him a snack and it turned in to total chaos! After I saw him I went with his best friend Fisher to a store he works at and when I was leaving there was at least 30 photographers. Its really scary for me, especially being a new driver! Sorry I’m venting but somehow I feel like my fans are the only people I can talk to. I love you guys I really miss Nashville today….

I can’t really blame her. It’s hard enough to be a new driver, but to have tons of middle aged men following you around, it has to be rough.

Note to the paparazzi: If you get too close, accidents are bound to happen!

Conan O’Brien: You Never Know What’s Going to Happen

Conan O’Brien spends time with his family as they walk together in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 10).

The 46-year-old comedian stepped out with wife Elizabeth Ann Powell, daughter Neve and son Beckett and spoke to photogs about the possibility of moving back to a later time slot on NBC. “You never know,” Conan said. “You never know what’s going to happen.”

Jerry Seinfeld weighed in on the situation at the NBC winter press tour; “Once they give you the cameras, it’s on you,” he said (via ABC).

“I can’t blame NBC for having to move things around,” Jerry added. I hope Conan stays, I think he’s terrific. But there’s no rules in show business, there’s no refs.”

Get your Eisenhower mugs out!

It seems many people enjoyed Friday's post so I am doing it again. Yes I am abusing my power, but oh well.

We had someone contact us who might be interested in organizing a gathering at 30 Rock on Thursday to show support for Conan. It is really in the formation period right now, but we'll keep you updated. If you'd be interested in attending, her name is Tara and the email is coconogogo @ yahoo.com

And it is fine if you like Jay Leno, the problem is the disregard NBC is showing for Conan and his staff moving their lives out to LA only to have things changed.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Tila Tequila is going to be free tomorrow night.

A rep for Larry King Live confirms they've pulled the plug on the reality-TV personality's visit to the show to discuss her late fiancée Casey Johnson.

Tila was scheduled to be the talkmeister's sole guest tomorrow for a program that was being billed as a tribute to the late Johnson & Johnson heiress.

As we first reported, King received phone calls from Casey's friends and family members urging him to pull the plug on Tila.

She's been replaced by the authors of the best-selling political book Game Change, and an interview with the third White House partycrasher.

UPDATE: We just heard back from Tila Tequila about Larry King cancelling her appearance on his show tomorrow night.

Tila says she's OK with it.

"I'm not pushing for them to change their minds cuz honestly, my fanbase demographic and to the people that matter to my career dont watch Larry King," she wrote in an email.  "Yes he is a huge credible person, but really not someone a young demographic of people watch."
