Robert Pattinson would love to be a romantic comedy king



Robert Pattinson has revealed during an interview with British TV show GMTV that he would love to do romantic comedy.

Pattinson who’s upcoming movie Remember Me is set for release in cinemas on April 2nd has commented that he hasn’t found anything that he considers perfect for him yet.
“I’d love to, but they are always just so rubbish – I mean like, I’d absolutely love to do it, but I’ve literally never read a good rom-com script,”

Pattinson feels that there is too much competition to be a romantic comedy king using the example of Hugh Grant.
Pattinson adds “I think it’s such a typical career choice for me, as well, to be honest,”
“If you do a big franchise thing – especially for English guys – you try and do a Hugh Grant part or something. Which I don’t think would be the best idea for me… mainly because it’s quite difficult to be Hugh Grant!”

SRC. The interview will be airing on the 29th March.

Cops Worried about Lindsay Lohan!




Some police officers who routinely come in contact with Lindsay have thought seriously about forcing her to get help.

Cops who see Lindsay at her worst -late nights and early mornings when she needs assistance avoiding the paparazzi – say that her behavior has grown progressively worse over the last few months.

During one of Lindsay’s crazier nights out recently, cops became so concerned they discussed taking her in for a 5150 evaluation. Cops decided against it because she didn’t meet all the criteria for a 5150.

I hope she gets her shitnitz...together before it's too late...at least Britney family saved her from all of this... Lindsay family is just as crazy as she is right now!

Butterbeer = Taste Explosion



This is the second of three reports to be published stemming from a recent visit
to Universal Studios in Orlando, FL where several Harry Potter fan-sites were
invited to partake in some behind-the-scenes special events. The first report
contained an interview with the man foremost behind the Wizarding World of Harry
Potter theme park and his description of its feature ride, "Harry Potter and the
Forbidden Journey" - as well as a special tour we were given through its queue.
Although that report answered long-standing questions about the most-anticipated
ride in the park, I feel that this report details what will be the Wizarding
World's knockout punch to fans and non-fans everywhere: the food.

On our recent trip to Universal, we met with Richard Florell who is the senior
VP of Food and Merchandise for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park.
He brought food with him. It was the food that they will serve in the Harry
Potter theme park when it opens on June 18th.

Note: later today it is expected that a full menu of food and drink available in
the HP theme park will be released by Universal Studios as per a prior
understanding between them and us. Although pictures of the food itself are not
at this time available, we expect that such images are forthcoming.

There is really only one way to summarize what is going to be said in this
review: try the food. All of it. Then have some more. It'll do you good.

Out.com interviews Caprica's Sasha Roiz



After attending Syfy Channel's Upfront presentation event last week at New York City's Museum of Modern Art, I sat down to talk with Sasha Roiz who plays Sam Adama, the gay gangster on the Syfy Channel's hit show, Caprica, which is ending the first half of its season this Friday. We chatted about representing the gay community in the sci-fi world, his torso, and, among other things, dating Cylons.

Out: You shot the pilot episode of Caprica. Was Sam pegged to be a regular character from the very beginning?

Sasha Roiz: If the show got picked up, they said he had potential to become a recurring character, and when the show did get picked u,p they offered me a regular role. I always felt there was a lot of potential with this character.

Will Larry, your husband, play a larger role in upcoming episodes?

I can't promise that there will be a lot of me and Larry. Homosexuality on Caprica is such a nonissue, it would require a specific focus. Clearly, if a character in my position or in my line of work on another show were gay, it would cause a great deal of controversy, but here it's not really an issue, so there's no need to really explore the background. We touched upon it and displayed that it's a healthy and normal environment, and you're going to see Larry as more of a support for Sam. There's going to be a storyline where Sam questions his loyalties to his relationships all around him, including Larry.

Jordan's house haunted by ghosts




Jordan a.k.a Katie Price is reportedly desperate to leave her house that she believes is haunted by a pair of ghosts.
The 31-year-old glamour girl, who shares the house with partner Alex Reid, was said to have asked estate agent to put the 2.5 million pound home in Surrey on the market."Katie wants out of there quickly as she''s convinced it''s haunted by a pair of ghosts.

They''re convinced there''s an old lady upstairs. You can''t tell them otherwise.

The Cost of Lost? ABC Asks $900,000 for Finale



So much for "Keep it simple, stupid." ABC's "Lost" may have shed millions of viewers as the show grew increasingly complex, but the remaining fans are so intense that marketers are spending big to appear in the program's on-air farewell. The cost of a 30-second ad in the final episode of the series is coming in around a whopping $900,000, according to media buyers.

New 'Iron Man 2' TV Spot

Here's the new "Iron Man 2" TV spot that aired during the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. It features a little bit of new footage, plus the first sound bite of Scarlett Johansson as a Russian spy called The Black Widow. Surprisingly (or maybe not surprisingly), she sounds about as Russian as Halle Berry sounded African in the last two X-Men movies.

OMG. Xtina will be on VH1's Storyteller for her new album "Bionic"!



A fan called in and asked if she would ever make a live album? Christina replied saying it was something she thought about doing in the future. Christina confirmed that she will be on VH1: Storyteller! She also added that there are several projects she is working on with MTV at the moment. Now that MTV Diary is back, maybe she is doing another one of those? You think you know me, but you have no idea. Her episode for Stripped was so amazing.

VH1: Storyteller:

In each episode artists perform in front of a (mostly small and intimate) live audience, and tell stories about their music, writing experiences and memories, somewhat similar to MTV Unplugged.

"Deathly Hallows will be even more epic in 3-D"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


As part of their 3-D week celebration, MTV News has a new interview with Producer David Heyman about the upcoming final two Harry Potter films being released in 3-D and the reason for choosing to do so.

"Harry Potter itself has so many exciting possibilities for 3-D, both in things coming at you and also just in making that world seem even more epic than it already is. Harry Potter is already an epic film, but having that added dimension will make it even more epic, and that seemed like an opportunity that was too hard to pass up."

Also mentioned briefly, is filming the upcoming Epilogue and how they have yet to decide how to age all of the characters. Last week we learned that Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the films, would be aged with prosthetics.

Not a hoax! Not a dream! Not an imaginary story! Hasselbeck smacks down Palin!

Elizabeth Hasselbeck: Sarah Palin's Crosshairs Ad 'Despicable'


Sarah Palin's gun sight-riddled campaign map is so militant that it's even lost her the support of "The View" co-host Elizabeth Hasselbeck, who called Palin's behavior "despicable."

After "View" co-host Joy Behar said the map, which features white and red gun sights drawn over districts whose Democratic representatives voted for health care, "looks like an al Qaeda Christmas card" Thursday, Hasselbeck -- who campaigned with Palin in 2008 -- spoke up in uncharacteristic agreement.

"This hasn't been a great week in terms of, I think, the Constitution and where it says that you're supposed to, you know, everybody is, has a mandate to have insurance. But I think the way some Republicans are handling this is nothing more than purely despicable," Hasselbeck said. "The names that are next to and being highlighted by those crosshairs -- I think it's an abuse of the Second Amendment. I also feel as though every single person on here is a mother, a father, a friend, a brother, a sister, and to take it to this level is -- it's disappointing to see this come from the Party, and I would hope that leaders like Sarah Palin would end this."

After some crosstalk from the other "View" co-hosts, Behar thanked Hasselbeck for repudiating the GOP's implicit support for the increasingly violent behavior directed towards Democrats. "John Boehner should take a page from your book," she said, pronouncing the House Minority Leader's name "Boner." "Republicans are not speaking out against this and you may be the first one to do it, and I salute you, my girl."

Dorell’s girlfriend and baby’s mama Mia Lee (pictured in the inset pic) decided to try to school groupies on Twitter about how everything in her life–her man, friends, fam–are all private and no one can tell her anything about them. Well, groupie Kat Stacks (check out this post if you don’t know who she is) felt like popping her bubble right quick. Because she Tweeted Mia that she doesn’t know her man as well as she thinks.

TV Ratings Sunday



An overrun of the NCAA Basketball tournament (until approximately 7:30pm Eastern) boosted CBS ratings for an easy win on Sunday night. Although its schedule in the East/Central was pushed back, it seems likely that again The Amazing Race and Undercover Boss won their hours easily.

Fox’s lineup endured it’s second (and final) Sunday against NCAA basketball better than last week, mostly recovering a bit except for now canceled ‘Til Death which fell 20% from last week to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating, and The Simpsons which fell another 4% to a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating. Everything else on Fox was up. The Cleveland Show rose 8% to a 2.7 rating. Family Guy increased 6% to a 3.7 rating, and Sons Of Tuscon was up 5% to a 2.0 rating.

NBC’s Sunday line up also recovered a bit as Minute To Win It increased 5% from last week to a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating and Celebrity Apprentice was up 5% to a 2.8 rating.

A sold-out concert by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony at House of Blues in Cleveland came to an abrupt end Sunday night when 50 Cleveland police officers and Cuyahoga County Sheriff's deputies descended on the venue and took a member of the Grammy-winning hip-hop group into custody.

Flesh-N-Bone, whose real name is Stanley Howse, was arrested, tour manager Josh Williams said shortly afterward.


A Third District police officer, who declined to give his name because he is not authorized to make public statements, said Howse had outstanding warrants and would spend the night in jail.

The officer said police from multiple districts were dispatched to the House of Blues because of the size of the crowd, estimated at 1,000-plus, and that nobody was hurt during the incident.

TMZ has learned Chikezie Eze did not pass the smell test with the L.A. County District Attorney, who has charged the "American Idol" castoff with the crime of attempted grand theft for allegedly trying to buy two bottles of cologne with fraudulent credit info.

Chikezie was arrested last February after trying to buy cologne at Neiman Marcus .... prosecutors say he fraudulently tried using credit information from a man named Willem Grandia.

And only at Neiman's would two bottles of cologne constitute grand theft -- the tab was $1,289.57.

In addition to the misdemeanor grand theft charge, the D.A. is prosecuting Chikezie for misdemeanor identity theft.

Cheryl TWEEDY to publish first official book


Transworld has bought the rights to the first official Cheryl Cole book, My World, to be published on 30th September. Editorial director Sarah Emsley bought world rights from literary agent Pat Lomax at Bell Lomax Moreton.

Emsley said: “Last year Cheryl Cole had a number one single, a number one album and was a judge on the UK’s most successful television programme. She continues to be an integral member of the most successful girl band the UK has ever seen. Warm, talented, incredibly beautiful, greatly loved by the British public and an absolute joy to work with, she is the most talked about celebrity in the UK today. We could not be more thrilled to be publishing the first official Cheryl Cole book.”

The title will be a “lavishly illustrated” hardback and will be published by Bantam Press. Many of the images will be previously unseen photographs from Cole’s personal collection, along with new exclusive pictures.

Cole said: “I think looking at pictures is a bit like listening to music – it reminds you of what was happening and how you were feeling at certain times in your life. Sometimes I look at old pictures and I can’t believe that was me. I think we all do that. I went through a phase of being a bit tomboyish when I loved trainers and Timberland boots and baggy trousers. I had pink streaks in my hair at one point but I was experimenting and at the time I liked it. I can look at photos and straight away they’ll bring back loads of memories. That’s really why I wanted to do this book, so I could choose pictures that mean something to me and tell the stories that go with them.”

Rihanna's panic at pervy letters

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Rihanna is stepping up security after receiving X-rated letters from a male fan.

The Russian Roulette star, 22, has been bombarded with filthy letters in the mail.

Now her baseball star boyfriend Matt Kemp, 25, has decided enough is enough.


The LA Dodgers ace is panicking that the sicko fan will flash at Ri or, even worse, break into her home and get cosy in her bed.

With an ass as hot as the sand in the Sahara, it’s no wonder the saucy warbler has a massive male following.

But Rihanna’s very own Rude Boy, who calls himself Buster, has taken his crush on the star to a creepy, obsessive level.

Understandably, Rihanna’s piece of man-muscle is getting increasingly worried about her safety and is prepared to do whatever it takes to protect her from the nutjob.

A source close to the Bajan beauty said: “Matt has asked Rihanna’s team to be extra cautious since she was sent two very steamy letters.

“Her friends are also concerned about the situation. They spent ages talking about it when they dined at the Spanish Kitchen in West Hollywood last week. They are really worried things with this guy are going to get out of hand.”


But Rihanna isn’t letting the pervy pest get in her way. She turned heads and wowed fans at Saturday night’s Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards in LA,

After arriving at the bash in a stunning pink pleated Christian Dior dress and yet another new hair-do – a two-toned blonde and black bob – Ri donned a bright pink and khaki dress and studded black cap to perform a medley of her hits.

The Run It hitmaker is reportedly having trouble finding a suitable venue for his 21st birthday on May 5 — and its all because the clubs he’s approaching don’t want to harm their relationship with his ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown, you’ll recall, assaulted Rihanna in February 2009.

“They don’t want to mess up their relationship, or their potential relationship, with Rihanna,” a source told New York Post gossip column Page Six.

“He’s now looking for private homes or restaurants in Manhattan.”

A Brown spokesman had no comment, Page Six reports.

Elin Woods does not want to fake it



While Tiger Woods is preparing to return to golf at the Masters in Augusta, Ga., on April 8, his wife Elin Nordegren must decide whether to attend the tournament, in what would be a very public display of support for her husband.

And that's just the scenario Tiger's camp would like to see happen, according to a source close to Nordegren.

"Elin does not want to go to the Masters and is preparing for a trip to see her family and friends in Sweden," the source tells PEOPLE. "She is also being asked by Tiger to attend the Masters, even if for a half day, to look like she is interested in supporting his return to golf. But she would rather not be there."

Instead, the source believes that Nordegren will continue to keep a low profile and fly a commercial airline to Sweden, where her family lives.

"Tiger's [private] plane is too 'in your face' for her now," the source says. "She really does not want to go to Augusta, and it is easier for her to be far away than home in Orlando."

Lol at Tiger.

Adumb Lambert is doing more things~

Adam Lambert is one of Paper Mags Beautiful People of 2010!


"Without a doubt, Adam Lambert is the splashiest singer to ever lose on American Idol. The glammy 28-year-old has a knack for grabbing attention, from his costumes (Ziggy Stardust by way of Los Angeles) to the clubby pop-rock featured on his debut, For Your Entertainment, which went gold earlier this year. The album hit iTunes last November, and Lambert’s already released three videos to promote it—an anomaly in a time when the music industry is cutting back on such extravagances. But Lambert’s an extravagant sort of guy, the kind of performer who puts the emphasis on spectacle. “I really enjoy Gareth Pugh,” he says, discussing his go-to designers. “I like the late and great Alexander McQueen. I like Galliano. I love a Dolce & Gabbana suit. For more casual stuff, I like Diesel and Rock & Republic.” And he’s as comfortable in his clothes as he is in his role as a lightning rod for controversy, which is to be expected when you’re an openly gay megastar.
“Most of what I do doesn’t feel controversial,” he says. “I’m just the same Adam I’ve always been, and in the circles I run in, it’s not all that shocking.” Born in Indianapolis and raised in San Diego, Lambert showed a flair for the dramatic at an early age, appearing in various school theater productions; he went on to tour with a production of Hair and worked as a performer on a cruise ship for a year. That was all pre-Idol. Now he’s calling the shots, looking forward to an upcoming summer tour and hoping eventually to cross over into acting. “There’s been a void in mainstream music of a male performer who’s theatrical, campy, over the top. That’s something that used to be celebrated, and I haven’t seen that lately. So I think that’s an interesting challenge—to fill that spot.”

Michael Bolton recalls working with Gaga

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Michael Bolton is gaga over one of his recent collaborators.
“I love her … I adore her,” gushes the 57-year-old crooner about pop phenom Lady Gaga, who cowrote the song Murder My Heart on his new CD One World One Love.

“I didn’t know who Gaga was because her record hadn’t come out yet,” he says. “I had heard she was an excellent songwriter, but I didn’t know what it was going to be like working with her until I got to the studio and we hit it off. We became friends immediately and had a lot in common immediately … and the more I got to know her, the more I liked her.”

working with Lady Gaga:
When I met her and she started singing these melodies and lyrics to me, I realized I had a real artist in front of me. Someone who can actually sing and doesn’t need to be AutoTuned to sound good. She was the real thing. And she was so excited about what we were going to work on. I said, ‘It’s got to be something that’s going to kill people when they hear it.’ She said, ‘I have this idea for a title called Murder My Heart.’ So that’s how it began. We worked from 8 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. the first night, so there’s no question about her work ethic. And we did the same thing the next night. Then we finished the lyrics in London. Her mom was in London too, so I took the two of them out to dinner.

I remember her mother was a bit concerned whether her daughter was being hyped; whether the company was getting her too concerned about her career before her album came out. It’s funny; cut from that moment to four months later, when she obviously surpassed her mother’s expectations and became huge. That’s great. I love to see someone that focused who already has that vision of her career. People compare her to a new Madonna, a young Madonna, but I think she has the reins of her career more than when Madonna started out. She’s in on every aspect, from songwriting production to what the next video’s going to look like. She’s the epitome of an artist.

uncle cici is coming back y'all.



Ciara fans have reason to celebrate. After keeping a tight lid on her new music, the singer has revealed the first offering from her next album.
 
The lead single from the R&B star’s fourth effort is called “Ride” and features Ludacris, Jive Records confirms to Rap-Up.com. The Atlanta natives previously collaborated on “High Price” from last year’s Fantasy Ride and most recently on the remix to Luda’s “How Low.” The Tricky Stewart and Dream production will impact radio in the next few weeks.

Ciara’s as-yet-untitled LP, due this summer, was executive produced by the hitmaking duo. “I did the whole album; it’s amazing. If you like Tricky and Dream, you’ll definitely like this,” Tricky told Rap-Up.com earlier this year.

The disc marks a return to form for the “Goodies” singer, who has been recording in Los Angeles since last summer. “This record obviously is gonna have tempo to it, but I think it’s gonna have even more substance than the last record,” Tricky added. “She dances and we always want to bring out what she does that other people don’t.”

Among the tracks that may make the cut are “Gifted” and “Speechless” featuring The-Dream.

Keira Knightley & Rupert Friend Spending Time Together

Keira Knightley and her boyfriend, Brit actor Rupert Friend, have brunch together at a bohemian cafe on Sunday afternoon (March 28) in London.

The English actress has been approached to play the female lead in Captain America.

Last week, Chris Evans accepted the role of Captain America. My guess is that Keira will drop out of the running.

FYI: Keira just turned 25 on Friday. Happy birthday, Keira!!

Sarah Harding: I'm not going solo

Sarah Harding has insisted she isn't going solo - and instead wants to pursue her film career.

The 28-year-old Girls Aloud star attended the Jameson Empire Awards in London where she revealed that while the band are on a break she will not be pursuing a solo music career like Cheryl Cole and Nadine Coyle, but wants to do more acting.

Sarah said: "I never said I was going solo, can I just straighten that out. I'm still wanting to do music and involve myself more in film."

She added: "I love thrillers. I'd love to do something quite psychological, paranormal. I'm a bit sort of sinister like that but I also love comedy as well, I love a good comedy.

"I've got a few things I want to do this year. I've got a few bits and bobs but it's too early to talk about, things in production and all that. There's possible TV and possible film, bit of both."

But Sarah, who appeared in St Trinian's II and BBC drama Freefall, would not be keen on a musical role.

She said: "I'm not... I think Kimberley [Walsh] would be amazing at musicals actually. She loves musicals, she knows every single one inside out. I think I'd give that one to her."

Who will fill Oprah's shoes?



Since Oprah Winfrey announced her decision to end her talk show on Sept. 9, 2011, speculation about who'll be "The Next Oprah" has run rampant. Of course, no one can fill the shoes of the most powerful woman in American popular culture. Oprah will still be Oprah, and she will reign over her OWN -- the Oprah Winfrey Network. But just maybe, a new daytime TV leader will emerge and become the next afternoon fountain of inspiration, instruction, lifestyle, books, and mental health. A number of names have been bandied about, including Bonnie Hunt, Tyra Banks, Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, Rachel Ray, Martha Stewart, and Nate Berkus. Here are a few more for your consideration.

Q&A: Fey, Carell hit the town in `Date Night'



Thursday nights on NBC, Tina Fey is Liz Lemon and Steve Carell is Michael Scott. Neither is particularly functional.

But in the new big-screen comedy "Date Night," Fey and Carell discover unforeseen talents, playing married parents whose night out in Manhattan turns into a wild adventure due to a case of mistaken identity.

The pairing is fitting. Fey are Carell aren't just two of NBC's most famous, award-winning faces, whose shows normally sit side by side. They're both alumni of the famed bastion of improv, Second City.

In a recent interview, Carell, 47, and Fey, 39, discussed their collaboration, which was directed by Shawn Levy ("Night at the Museum"). After the interview, Fey stood up and did a "cheeseburger macaroni" dance, excited that dinner with her daughter was approaching.

Romantically Challenged Gets an Air Date!



ABC has set Monday, April 12, at 9:30 as the premiere slot for “Romantically Challenged,” an ensemble comedy starring Alyssa Milano.

The show is created by Ricky Blitt ("Family Guy") and executive produced by Blitt and sitcom veteran James Burrows. Burrows also is the show’s director.

It's Milano's first regular series gig since "Charmed" went off the air in 2006.

She plays recent divorcee Rebecca, who after 15 years of marriage hasn't been on a date since the Clinton presidency. Her equally romantically challenged friends include Perry (Kyle Bornheimer), successful financial planner, romantic and Rebecca's friend since childhood; struggling novelist Shawn (Josh Lawson), the cynic to roommate Perry's romantic; and Rebecca's little sister, Lisa (Kelly Stables), whose deceptively sweet appearance masks both her pit-bull protectiveness of Rebecca and her wild side.

ABC asks: "Will these four romantically challenged friends ever find lasting love? Or even someone who lasts until next Thursday?"

The series is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. and Candy Bar Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Stephen King to publish new book

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Stephen King is a big fan of baseball, particularly the Boston Red Sox, as anyone who’s read The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon can tell you, and now he’s ready to take us out to the ballpark again. In the lead-up to Opening Day, indie publisher Cemetery Dance has just announced the release of Blockade Billy, a new baseball-themed novella from King. The work is the tale of William Blakely, a player long erased from the history books, who harbored a deep, dark secret. Knowing the author, I suspect it’ll be something a lot creepier than steroids or pine tar.

“People have asked me for years when I was going to write a baseball story,” King said in the press release. “Ask no more; this is it.” According to Cemetery Dance, Blockade Billy will be available to ship in a few weeks, but you can order a copy now via the publisher’s online store. The first copies will also come with a baseball card of the protagonist. (And those who don’t order online may be out of luck. As the Cemetery Dance website notes, “We’ll be filling direct orders first and then distributors, online stores, and the chains if there are copies left available after we’ve taken care of our regular customers.”)

It’s interesting to see one of the biggest-name authors in popular literature publishing through a relatively small specialty house like Cemetery Dance. The company kept news of the book quiet so it would be a surprise just in time for the upcoming baseball season. What do you think? Surprised? Any fans of both King and baseball particularly excited for this?

Legendary Pictures announced today they are ready to start developing a new movie based on the legendary Toho Studios monster Godzilla, having acquired the rights to the character Toho created over fifty years ago in the 1954 film, which has since become a genre classic. Legendary is producing the movie through their deal with Warner Bros. with hopes to announce a director soon to helm the movie with the intention of having it ready for a 2012 release.

Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer are former "Friends" costars -- but are they also former friends?

The long-time pals, who played love interests on the hit sitcom, are reportedly "on a break" after Aniston's appearance on David Letterman earlier this month. Schwimmer was upset by Aniston's comment that she had no idea who Schwimmer had become engaged to, according to the Examiner. Schwimmer announced last month that he was planning to marry his long-time girlfriend Zoe Buckman. He was reportedly so upset by Aniston's comment that he hasn't taken her calls since then.

WWE Raw guest host Steve Austin has praised rival wrestling group TNA



TNA's Impact show now goes head-to-head with Raw in the US - just like WCW Nitro did in the glory days of the 90s.

And legendary star Stone Cold insists it is good for the industry and the grapplers to have an alternative.

Steve, speaking on Hardcore Sports radio, said: "Competition is great for the business.

"I don't know if we'll ever re-create that Nitro-Raw war. WCW kicked our ass for two years, then we smoked their ass and never looked back and put them out of business.

"I wish the TNA people all the luck in the world because it means more of the boys have jobs and it gives fans an alternative.

"I don't think anyone will ever come close to really giving true competition to WWE because they're so far ahead of the game, they're rooted in their system, and they're a winner.

"I wish TNA all the luck in the world, but it's a totally different product."

Previous Raw guest host Ricky Hatton caused controversy last year when he told SunSport that his favourite wrestler was TNA star Hulk Hogan.

Peaches Geldof sacked by Ultimo after nude photo/heroin scandal

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Peaches Geldof has been axed as the "face and body" of underwear brand Ultimo following claims about her private life.

The company said it would be removing visuals of the 21-year-old, who was appointed in May last year, from all shops and window displays.

In a statement, a spokeswoman for Miss Ultimo lingerie said on Monday: "We have been in meetings all morning with regards to the stories that have surfaced over the weekend about Peaches and unfortunately we have no option but to terminate her contract."

She went on: "Miss Ultimo is a brand geared towards a young female audience and as a company we have a social responsibility to ensure we are promoting only positive role models that young women can aspire to. We are thus in the process of removing Peaches from the website and we are working with Debenhams to remove her visuals from all Miss Ultimo shops and window displays throughout the UK."

Michelle Mone, the founder of the brand, said: "We've given this a lot of thought, but there's a point where a business must stick to its principles and as a brand that targets young women, we feel it is impossible for Peaches to continue to work with us as the face of Miss Ultimo lingerie."

Peaches is thought to be currently in Los Angeles.Her spokeswoman was not immediately available for comment.

what in the good lord's name were they thinking hiring her as the FACE and BODY in the first fucking place?!

Modern Family in TV Guide Magazine


Modern Love
by Shawna Malcom

On a late February afternoon, a modern family is attempting to throw a decidedly traditional birthday party.

But despite the cluster of colorful balloons designed to brighten up the Dunphys’ suburban living room, the guest of honor’s mood is growing gloomier by the minute. First, Phil (Ty Burrell) learns his cake’s gone splat all over the floor, then he’s informed the celebratory pizzas haven’t been delivered. When his father-in-law arrives with a large wrapped gift, things appear to be looking up—until said in-law hastily rips open the package himself.

Wait, there’s more. Or at least there’s supposed to be, until a loud, unscripted kaboom—caused by the collapse of a column on the Los Angeles set—abruptly halts filming.

“Everybody OK?” Burrell calls out to his fellow cast and crew. Thankfully, everyone’s fine, and shooting resumes within moments. But Burrell can’t resist cracking a joke first. “Well,” he says with a grin, “we now have footage of me genuinely terrified for the gag reel.”

GLAAD Reaction + Ellen Comic Book

 

Earlier today, Ricky Martin revealed that he is gay. GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) president Jarrett Barrios has reacted to the news.

“When someone like Ricky Martin comes out, hundreds of millions of people now have a cultural connection with an artist, a celebrity and, perhaps most importantly, a father who happens to be gay,” Barrios said. “His decision to model this kind of openness and honesty can lead to greater acceptance for countless gay people in U.S., in Latin America and worldwide.”

Earlier in the day, Ricky publicly revealed his sexuality, saying, “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.”

Jon Heder pulls a Megan Mullally and quits new sitcom before production was to start


This is hardly dynamite news for Comedy Central: Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) has abruptly dropped out of the Will Ferrell-produced sitcom he was set to star in for the cable net.

Heder’s camp released the following statement exclusively to EW.com confirming the news: “Comedy Central, Gary Sanchez Productions and Jon Heder have mutually decided to part ways over creative differences with the character. Jon wishes the show nothing but success, and is very grateful for the opportunity.”

The untitled series, which centers on a young man (Heder) who moves back in with his parents, co-stars Saturday Night Live’s Chris Parnell and Horatio Sanz. Production was scheduled to get underway later this month, but that’s likely to be pushed back as Comedy Central searches for a new leading man.

Nadine Coyle denies Girls Aloud rift

And is learning to dance

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Nadine Coyle has been having dance lessons.

The Girls Aloud singer is preparing to launch her solo career and admits there are some aspects of being a pop star she has had to work harder at than others.

She said: "I'm not a huge fan of dancing and I've never claimed to be the best mover around."

"I was always into the singing more, so I hated having to learn all the routines. But I have been doing some training in the States and I think I'm getting more used to it now. I want to come out with a great single and video and start things off with a bang."

While there has been much speculation that Nadine doesn't get along with her bandmates - Cheryl Cole, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh - the singer insists they are all friends and will stay that way even when the group eventually split.

She added: "Whenever we decide or the public decides that we're not needed or wanted any more, things will be great between us. They really will because they can't not be.

"The girls are family. You can fall out with them, but you can't lose them."

Martha Stewart In Talks To Get Her Own Cable Channel



If early negotiations prove fruitful, Martha Stewart may be headed to the helm of her own channel.
 

We told you Martha and the Hallmark Channel were already in cahoots, syndicating her daytime shows to the network.
 

Starting today, the channel is airing 7 hours of Martha-approved programming a day.
 

Now Hallmark's parent company is in talks to form a whole, new Martha-branded channel.
 

Broadcasting & Cable:

The rationale behind such a get-together is simple: Crown Media, which operates two programming services, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel, wants to tap Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia's digital expertise, while MSLO wants a bigger stake in the TV business. And if Oprah's getting her own channel, why not Martha?
 

Since she already has a stamp on nearly a third of Hallmark Channel's programming, why not give her an entire channel?
 

Joe Flint at the LA Times has a better idea:
 

Just give her the Hallmark Channel to run. Stewart is practically taking over the network anyway, and it already has mass distribution. Why go through the hassles of trying to launch a new channel, which will struggle to get carriage on cable and satellite systems?
 

The strange thing about the movements by Crown Media, according to B&C, is that "Hallmark is moving many of its made-for-TV movies to its sibling Hallmark Movie Channel and trying to attract younger viewers."
 

Since when has Martha, or her tastes, appealed to a younger crowd? (Ignoring her prison nickname M. Diddy.)
 

At this juncture, the Hallmark Channel is fighting declining ratings and debt has become a defining characteristic of Crown Media. A partnership with Stewart's Omnimedia might increase value of the company, but the idea that celeb-branded networks can be a success remains as yet unfounded.

For now, the deal is still "in the very early stages."

Eyrkah Badu addresses Controversial Video

This past Saturday, Erykah premiered her new music video “Window Seat”In the video, Badu strips down to her birthday suit while the camera shoots  everything in front of an actual  unsuspecting public. And man, What. A. View! The clip was shot in her hometown of Dallas, TX. The ‘X’  at the 5:19 mark is where former President John F. Kennedy was assassinated 47 years ago.

Despite her artistic expression, the video was marred with some backlash. Erykah addressed it head on and the support she received from her children’s fathers (Andre 3000, Common, D.O.C.....she gets around folks..lol). Rap Radar has a shot of her tweets explaining the process.



She mentioned what everyone said beforehand ("Andre said if u wanna go, go all the way"), what her current beau Jay Electronica said ("If you feel good about it do it") and she mentioned the comments she got from the public ("People were yelling things").

Rachel Weisz Rumoured For Bond 23





It's the merest hint of a whiff of a rumour, to the extent that even the source, Cinema Blend, are at pains to say they're not sure they believe it. But the story goes that Rachel Weisz, former squeeze of reported director Sam Mendes and recent co-star of Daniel Craig (in Dream House) is being seriously considered for a plum role in Bond 23. Not as a bond-girl, but as the villain.
 

Blend say their man on the inside has been proved right in the past (he called Black Widow being in Iron Man 2, for example), even while emphasising that "things can change in a heartbeat" and the process at the moment is merely brainstorming (not to mention that MGM's internal ructions will likely significantly delay proceedings).
 

But we know that Peter Morgan has been working on the script for a while now, so even if Weisz proves to be a false lead, it's just possible that this could be our first hint of an uber-villainess heading up the shady organisation that Bond has been tracking since Casino Royale
 

We've had a female Bond villain before though: Sophie Marceau's Elektra King in The World is Not Enough. Scarily, that's eleven years ago now, but in Bond terms it's still recent memory. So take this with a cellar full of salt for now, and remain coolly unconvinced. But by all means speculate wildly below. If Quantum has a female figurehead (an M in negative?) who would be the best possible casting?

James Franco To Get Yet Another Degree At Yale?



The Yale Herald reports that heartthrob James Franco will become one of Hollywood's most-degreed actors by enrolling in Yale's English Ph.D program.

Our sources tell us he'll be here starting in September, though lucky Yalies may see him around campus in the coming weeks for admitted students events. Franco was on campus earlier this academic year for a Berkeley College Master's Tea, causing a huge commotion among the ladies, the gays and the soap-opera fans.


The Yale Daily News reached Franco's manager by phone, who confirmed that while Franco was accepted to Yale and it is his first-choice school, but he has not committed to attending.

Franco recently got his MFA at Columbia. He completed his undergraduate degree at UCLA, and has also studied film at NYU.
