'Law & Order: SVU' scoop: Benson and Stabler married with children?!

April 11,2010

Talk about a sweeps stunt: Law & Order: SVU's May 5 episode will find Benson and Stabler playing house!

"They're going undercover as a married couple adopting a baby," reveals executive producer Neal Baer, who says the episode will allow longtime fans to "experience the fantasy" of a Benson/Stabler coupling (without any of the morning after awkwardness).

How far will the partners take the charade? "You'll have to wait and see," hedges Baer, who declines to say whether the two will share a kiss. "But there's certainly emotion shown between them because they're supposed to be married."

Bye Bye, Def Jam

It sounds like Mariah Carey is preparing to call it quits with record label Island Def Jam.

The rumour mill's been churning for months that the Precious star was going to jump ship. Sure enough, plans to release her remix album Angel's Advocate have been shelved and other record companies have approached her about discussing a possible switch.

My source tells me: "Expect an announcement soon."


Leighton Meester Beat Blake Lively to a Hair Product Endorsement Deal

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Leighton Meester is the new celebrity hair of Herbal Essences hair products, which is not terribly earth-shattering news. However, is it surprising that she earned the appointment over Blake Lively, whose hair the Times not long ago dubbed the new "Rachel"? That is basically the biggest, most important title hair can get — but what good is it if it doesn't pay her?

Meester's hairstylist, Charles Baker Strahan, has styled both her and Lively, according to his Wikipedia page. Herbal Essences also employs him as a celebrity hairstylist. So how did he and Herbal Essences choose Meester's hair over Lively's? Not that Meester doesn't have gorgeous hair, but everyone is so obsessed with Blake's — unless the tides of celebrity hair obsession are turning.

Hate yourself even more.

Last month during market appointments I was bummed to miss Nicole Richie’s Winter Kate fall 2010 collection preview but luckily INSTYLE has the first look. According to Nicole, “My main source of inspiration was this movie called From Hell, it’s about the free masons and Jack the Ripper so it’s definitely about that time [period]. We have capes and cigarette pants, vests, jackets and blazers. There are cleaner lines and it’s a lot more simple.” Looking cute, can’t wait to see more! Thanks to reader Jessie for the tip!

Affiliates Might Keep Conan From Going to Fox

Conan O'Brien and Fox are getting closer to completing a deal to bring the floppy-haired host back to TV but concerns from affiliates may deraile the entire deal, the Hollywood Reporter says tonight.

Fox has already gotten concessions from Conan's camp, including an agreement to cut his salary and lower production costs. But Conan is insisting that Fox guarantee that all stations across the country will air his show. This requires consent from the affiliates, who are hesitant because they will lose money if they have to replace episodes of Seinfeld and The Simpsons with a talk show.

There are a few other sticking points in the negotiations, including Conan's desires to own the show rather than work as an employee for Fox and have it start at 11 p.m., 35 minutes before Letterman and Leno. But those issues will likely be settled easily and the only thing standing in the way of the world once again enjoying Conan's stupid little dances will be those evil affiliates.

Nicola Roberts says Nadine hasn't contacted Girls Aloud since September

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle has not spoken to the rest of the band for months, Nicola Roberts said in a magazine interview.

While the redhead insisted there was no feud between LA-based Coyle and the rest of the group, she told Hello! that they have not heard from her since the autumn. The band have taken a year off to pursue solo projects.

Roberts said: "If I'm really honest, we haven't spoken to Nadine since we did the Coldplay gig at Wembley in September. I talked to the other girls about it on Monday and no, none of us have heard from her. But there's no feud."

The time off has given the 24-year-old the chance to have "girlie chats" while visiting the other band members' houses - Roberts now lives in Weybridge, Surrey.

She said: "You can just go round, curl up in your tracksuit bottoms on the couch and chill and talk about anything and everything. Cheryl and I have decided that next time I go round hers, we'll recreate the Lady Gaga video for Telephone. Cheryl's going to be Beyonce and I'll be Gaga. It'll be hilarious."

Roberts, who lives with boyfriend Charlie Fennell, said the women's partners have to earn the approval of the other band members.

"We're like that film Meet The Fockers - we have a circle of trust and you have to earn your place in it. I wouldn't ever want to bring someone in just because I was smitten; lust can glaze your eyes over and you can make poor judgments."

She also hit out at criticism that she has become too thin. "I am naturally very slim and saying someone is too skinny when they're naturally slim is just as offensive as saying they're fat when they're a bit plumper."

The full interview appears in Hello! Magazine which is out now.

Love Never Dies- Ramin Hospitalized on Monday, but ok. Interview with Summer Strallen.

Posted on BWW.com on April 5-
Love Never Dies' Ramin Karimloo has been in hospital for surgery after being taken ill.

It was initially thought that he had a flu-like virus, causing him to miss shows over the weekend, but the actor posted this morning on Facebook:
"It's not flu as first was suspected. Blood tests showed a problem and I was rushed for Key Hole surgery last night. Did not see that coming at all. All is and will be fine and I'm determined to be back asap."
The show will go on, however, with Karimloo's understudy, Tam Mutu, playing the role of Mr Y in his absence. No additional details have been released at this time; we will be bring you the latest updates if and when we get them.

Interview with Summer Strallen, who plays Meg Giry

Hi, Summer...this is a lovely room!

It is, isn't it?  I'm very pleased with it.  I actually prefer it to my Sound Of Music room.  When people come in, I don't have to shout through three doors, which I used to hate, because, hello, I have to sing!  And it's all cosy and nice.

You've made yourself at home already with your pictures and cards.

Usually I don't, really.  I think because this company is really nice and a family, I've really settled in in that respect.  I practically live here now.  I'm here all the time because Sierra [Boggess] lives up in town.  We're such good friends that I'm up here all the time, coming in for tea with her.

Uh-oh. Andrew's last show, Woman in White, flopped on Broadway and almost every member of the main cast was ill and out for sometime (not to mention Michael Crawford's illness that caused him to leave just a few months into the London run). I hope his casts won't be cursed with illness.

Anderson Cooper: New Talk Show Format!

Anderson Cooper hasn’t been doing too well in the ratings with his evening newscast, Anderson Cooper 360. (His show gets beaten by repeats of programs on MSNBC and HLN.)

CNN is trying to switch things up by adding a live studio audience to the mix, according to THR.

Two special episodes in this “conversational” format will be taped April 15th and 22nd, but no air date has been set.

Kelley dishes on talk queen's sexuality, falling-outs with friends

Oprah & Gayle

Highlights from biographer Kitty Kelley's newest book, Oprah: A Biography:

Celebrities comment on whether Winfrey and best friend Gayle King are lesbian partners:

•"I think they are the emotional equivalent of a gay couple," says Rosie O'Donnell, who is gay. "When they did that road trip together that's as gay as it gets and I don't mean it to be an insult either. I'm just saying listen, if you ask me, that's a gay couple." (The quote comes from O'Donnell's appearance on The Howard Stern Show in October 2009.)

•Winfrey confidante and author Erica Jong adds: "I would not be surprised if Oprah is gay. If she is, she is. It certainly fits."

Names Winfrey and King affectionately call each other, revealed on a Valentine's Day segment titled 'Girlfriends':

•"Oprah was 'Negro,' Gayle was 'Blackie,' " Kelley writes.

Is boyfriend Stedman Graham just a front, 'camouflage'?

•"Her close friends argued otherwise, saying he was the grounding force of her life. Others did not care one way or the other," Kelley writes.

•"Stedman is probably gay or neutral, but they have a bond. ... Her being gay would be the right reaction to the sexual abuse she says she's suffered and the mistrust she's always had of men," Winfrey's longtime friend Jong says.

Winfrey had a baby boy at 15, who died one month and 8 days later:

•"Oprah never talked about her lost baby," said her sister, Patricia, a drug addict who died in 2003 of an overdose. "It was a deep family secret that was almost never discussed within the family."

•"Everybody in the family sort of shoved it under a rock," Winfrey told Ebony. "Because I had already been involved in sexual promiscuity they thought if anything happened it had to be my fault and because I couldn't definitely say that he (her uncle Trent) was the father, the issue became 'Is he the father?' Not the abuse."

Winfrey's falling-outs with friends on the set of The Color Purple:

•"She forged strong friendships on the set, but few survived the passage of time," Kelley writes. She "fell out" with Whoopi Goldberg, "tangled" with screenwriter Akosua Busia, "pulled away" from Alice Walker and "offended" Steven Spielberg.


Jen Garner and Jennifer Lopez may star in a movie together

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

JENNIFER Lopez and Jennifer Garner are being lined up for a chick flick in which they play bitter love rivals, according to Hollywood insiders.

Lopez previously dated Garner’s husband, actor Ben Affleck.

“It really is just coincidence that their names have cropped up for this project but it’s clear sparks would certainly fly if Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Garner did decide to work together,” a source revealed.

“Neither has been ruled out of the project yet so something may happen.”

The Jenny From The Block singer started dating Affleck in 2002. The couple announced their engagement in November the same year after Affleck gave Lopez a six-carat pink diamond ring worth a reported $1.2 million.

The marriage, planned for September 14, 2003 in Santa Barbara, California, was called off just hours before the event.

Garner and Affleck married in 2005 and raise two children together.

That may be a train wreck waiting to happen.

Conan coming to TBS

And the winner of the Conan O'Brien sweepstakes is ... TBS.

According to a press release sent out by the cable network (which, like CNN, is a unit of Time Warner), the comedian is joining TBS to host a late-night show that is expected to debut in November. O'Brien's show will be followed on TBS' schedule by George Lopez's "Lopez Tonight," which will move to midnight.

"In three months I've gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theater, and now I'm headed to basic cable," O'Brien said in the statement. "My plan is working perfectly."

O'Brien is currently embarking on a nationwide comedy tour, but he made bigger headlines earlier this year when NBC decided to move Jay Leno back to "The Tonight Show's" late-night slot. O'Brien, who had been hosting "Tonight," left the network.


Lets think up things TBS stands for. I am thinking. Hummmmm

Did 'Bombshell' McGee Also Seduce Pink's Man?

As Michelle 'Bombshell' McGee continues to deal with the media whirlwind she created by outing her relationship with Jesse James, now there's word that she bedded another married, tattooed, bady boy celebrity: Carey Hart. McGee's ex-husband tells RadarOnline that the motocross champ turned reality star -- who's married to pop star Pink -- reportedly had a fling with McGee before her trysts with James.

"I knew about her fling with Carey Hart, Michelle told me that she had slept with him," Shane Modica, McGee's former husband, tells Radar.

Modica goes on to say that despite any sexual adventures, McGee got upset that she and Hart "never got to spend as much time together as she expected too," which led to some tension. Also creating some friction in a potential relationship was one of McGee's friends, who Modica says was also "friendly" with Hart.

"It is so typical of Michelle because she always goes for the guy who she thinks has the deepest pockets. It's horrible because she sleeps with anybody who she believes can help her out," McGee's ex says.

While no exact dates are given for when McGee allegedly slept with Hart, one thing is certain: He's been married to Pink since January of 2006. They did split up in February of 2008, but never divorced and later rekindled their relationship. In May of 2009, Pink officially declared that they were "back together" during a taping on 'Ellen,' despite the fact that her hit song 'So What' was a four minute tirade against Hart.

Neither Hart, Pink or McGee have commented on the allegations.

Modica and McGee are currently engaged in a custody battle over their five-year-old son, Avery. In another interview with Radar, Modica said that McGee recently asked him if he'd leave his current wife so that they could get back together.


I hope Pink kicks her ass

Supergrass split

Supergrass split after 17 years

Supergrass have split up citing "musical differences"

Oxford band Supergrass have split up bringing to an end a 17-year, six-album career.

The Britpop foursome - lead singer Gaz Coombes, keyboardist Rob Coombes, bassist Mick Quinn and drummer Danny Goffey - are famous for songs like Alright, Caught By The Fuzz and Richard III.

They'll play a selection of "farewell" UK gigs in Glasgow, Manchester and London before their final gig in Paris on 11 June.

In a statement, the band said: "Thanks to everyone who has supported us over the years. We still love each other but, cliché notwithstanding, musical differences have led to us moving on."

After forming in 1993 the quartet released their debut album I Should Coco in 1994.

In 2004 they celebrated their 10-year anniversary with a Best Of collection called Supergrass Is 10.

Their sixth studio album Diamond Hoo Har made it to number 19 in the UK album charts when it was released in 2008. The album was recorded by Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey after Mick Quinn injured his back in a sleep-walking accident.

They spent 2009 working on their seventh album - it is not yet known whether the material will be released.

Most recently, Gaz Coombes and Goffey released a covers album produced by Radiohead collaborator Nigel Godrich with their new project The Hot Rats in January.

Jessica Simpson Chops Off Hair?

Did Jessica Simpson cut her hair for a retro chin-length look -- or is it a belated April Fool's prank? Jury's out.

On Sunday, Simpson and Ken Paves (stylist and BFF) shared her latest snapshots via Twitter. "Carol Brady who :)?" she joked. Paves posted a photo of Simpson, 29, smiling on a plane, her sunny blonde locks seemingly chopped off to a 60s-inspired pixie cut -- or, more likely, concealed by a rather convincing wig.


"Stopped in West Palm and picked up my Aunt Sandy...off to Atlantic City!!!" Paves wrote. A second photo showed Simpson's elfin look in profile. "In flight hairdo fun!" she wrote. Paves quipped of the look: "Aunt Vikki came along too!"

What do you think of Jessica with short hair?


Man I haven't posted in years lol, I think it is a wig but she looks good in the profile shot imo.

Ben Roethlisberger wont be charged.

Ben Roethlisberger will not be charged for sexual assault stemming from an incident in Milledgeville, GA earlier this year.

During a news conference moments ago, Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit District Attorney Fred Bright said during a meeting with Ben's alleged victim 10 days ago, she said she did not want to pursue the matter any further.

Bright said both Ben and the woman were highly intoxicated when they went into the bathroom at Capital City nightclub -- where the alleged incident occurred.

Bright said there are still "significant questions about what occurred" in the bathroom ... but Ben will not be prosecuted.

Bright said after the alleged incident, Ben's victim went to a local hospital where an emergency room doctor and two nurses examined her, and found "a superficial laceration," bruising and bleeding in the genital area.

Bright said the woman told doctors "a boy kinda raped me" -- but Bright said the doctor could not say if the woman's injuries were caused by sexual assault.

Bright said Ben initially said the alleged victim fell and hit her head in the bathroom -- but doctors found no trauma to the woman's head. After that, Bright says Ben's agent stepped in and said the quarterback wouldn't answer questions with an attorney present.

'Modern Family' adult stars all submitting for Supporting Emmys

When Modern Family star Ed O’Neill submits himself this week for Emmy Awards consideration, he will do it in the Supporting Actor category, despite being the biggest name star on the hit ABC sitcom. Insiders said that O'Neill's move will be emulated by all of the principal cast members. While this might cost the show some trophies, sources said O’Neill is making the surprising move because he felt that nobody is bigger than anybody else in a show that is evolving into a true ensemble hit. When shows start out anchored by stars like O’Neill and then evolve into ensembles, egos often get bruised—remember when Rob Lowe left The West Wing?

In a final note on Modern Family, I am also hearing that the entire principal cast will be brought to New York next month for ABC's upfront presentation, the only cast making the trip for the network.

'In the criminal justice system...': A Law & Order roundup

EXCLUSIVE: Dick Wolf is once again looking to expand his “Law & Order” empire to four series on the air.

Sources said NBC has picked up “Law & Order: Los Angeles” aka “LOLA” with a 13-episode order for fall. “Brotherhood” creator Blake Masters is on board to co-create the new series set in Los Angeles with Wolf.

The Wolf Films/UMS project has been in development for the past couple of months.

Additionally, “Law & Order: SVU" is cleared for a 12th season pending some minor budgetary matters.

The cast led by Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni have already been clearing their schedule to shoot new episodes for the crime drama in June and July.

Hargitay and Meloni are set to return as part of the one-year deal they signed with NBC after lengthy negotiations last spring, which includes an option for a second year.

After suffering a sharp ratings decline in the fall when it was transplanted from 10p.m. to 9p.m. to make room for “The Jay Leno Show,” “SVU” has been gaining ground since it was moved back to 10 p.m. after the Winter Olympics.

The show also is getting a boost this spring from an arc by Sharon Stone.

Meanwhile, chances also look pretty good a record-breaking 21th season of the mothership “Law & Order” series, with the series’ cable home TNT expected to pitch in with an off-network fee to offset the cost of bringing the show back.

Not returning for the record 21st season is veteran cast member S. Epatha Merkerson who recently asked the series’ producers to be released. (She didn’t have a deal beyond Season 20.)

Elsewhere, after a cast overhaul, “L&O: Criminal Intent” just kicked in its ninth season on USA Network.

The last time Wolf had four “L&O” series on the air was in 2005 when the short-lived “L&O: Trial by Jury” joined the stories franchise.

NBC, UMS and Wolf Films declined comment

Bret Michaels rushed into emergency surgery; tour dates rescheduled


"Moments before he was to take the stage last night (April 11th) in San Antonio, Doctors at Sea World urged Bret Michaels to go to the hospital as the singer had been suffering all day from severe stomach pains and what was assumed to be a severe case of the flu. After further examination by Doctors in San Antonio it was determined that the singer was suffering from an acute appendicitis. He was rushed into emergency surgery at 1:00 a.m.. According to Doctors, Michaels, who remains in the hospital, is doing well and beginning the recovery process.

Michaels who has been known to perform under extreme conditions that would make most performers cancel, will unfortunately have no choice but to reschedule some of his April tour dates. A listing of all dates being rescheduled will be posted to his website in the coming days."

This is a Patton Oswalt Post

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

NBC has rounded out the cast of its Matthew Broderick comedy pilot "Beach Lane," adding comedian's comedian Patton Oswalt ("Ratatouille") and "3rd Rock from the Sun" alum Kristen Johnston to the mix.

Oswalt will star as "James" opposite Broderick. Show revolves around the world of a millionaire (Oswalt) who hires a celebrity author (Broderick) to run his struggling Hamptons newspaper.

Oswalt became available after the play "Lips Together, Teeth Apart" -- in which he was set to make his Broadway debut -- fell apart at the last minute. According to several accounts, the play's plug was pulled after co-star Megan Mullally raised objections to Oswalt's casting, and opted to drop out.

Oswalt's recent credits include the feature "Big Fan," as well as recurring roles on "Caprica" and "United States of Tara," as well as guest spots on "Community" and "Dollhouse." The Comedy Central regular also showed up on HBO's "Flight of the Conchords" and "Bored to Death."

Paul Simms created "Beach Lane," which also comes from Lorne Michaels' Broadway Video. Simms, Michaels and Marci Klein are exec producing for Universal Media Studios.


So this show is basically 'NewsRadio', but with fat Ferris Bueller instead of fat Dave Foley, and Patton Oswalt as Jimmy James. Cool?

A show biz vet since she was in diapers, the acting, singing, dancing SoCal native opens up about playing dead, playing for Obama, and other memorable firsts.

First Bad Review

My first big role was on The Royal Family with Redd Foxx in 1991. There was a review that said, "Naya Rivera is cute as the dickens but not much of an actress. Her lines sound forced." Forced? I was five!

First Death

I got the call that I'd booked Glee when I was on set on CSI: Miami. I was the dead person. I played a heroin addict. I got kidnapped, my neck got snapped, then I got electrocuted and abandoned in an alley. So I'm lying there dead when David Caruso walks up. Everyone was like, "Wait till you act with Caruso-he's crazy, very dramatic!" And I almost cracked up when he opened his mouth, like, "Does he really talk like that?"

First Family

None of us had and idea how big Glee was going to be. I was just shopping in Whole Foods one day, and I got an e-mail saying President Obama and First Lady Michelle would like to invite the cast to perform at the White House. I mean...the White House! I still don't think it's hit me.

First Girl-on-Girl Action

The whole relationship between Santana and her sidekick, Brittany, is hilarious. In the last episode before we went to break, I said, "Sex is not dating," and Brittany says, "If it were, Santana and I would be dating." I asked director, Brad Falchuk, "Are we doing this because she doesn't know what sex means, or did we in fact hook up?" He said, "Oh, no, you hooked up!" I was like, "OK!"

'Sex and the City 2' poster allegedly features Sarah Jessica Parker


There's a certain amount of photoshopping that one expects to be used on any promotional photo featuring a celebrity. This is why Jessica Simpson's decision to bypass retouching for the May cover of Marie Claire was actually noteworthy.

But there's retouching and then there is claiming that an oil painting of Sarah Jessica Parker is actually her face, as the new poster for "Sex and the City 2" does. Having said that, SJP has never looked better!

Does Jennifer Lopez Have To Go White In Order To Have A Hit Romantic Comedy Film?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Although some people believe we live in a post racial world, the truth is race still matters in pop culture. For instance, In order, for an actress of colour to become a mainstream movie star, her love interests must be a white heterosexual man.

If you look at Jennifer Lopez’s career, she mostly makes romantic comedies and all her love interests are exclusively white men.

Here is a list of Jennifer Lopez white male love interests in romantic comedies:

Poll #1550380 Race poll!

Does Jennifer Lopez Have A Go White In Order To Have A Hit Movie?

Yes, Jennifer Lopez is a business woman she knows a white male love interest will attract a larger audience .
No the reason Jennifer Lopez does not have a Latino male love interest is because there are a paucity of Latino leading men.
I am uncertain if race is the real reason Jennifer Lopez hardly ever has a Latino male love interest in her movies.

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith Has Got Dick Van Dyke Rapping On His New Album

The drummer has recorded bum of songs for children and recruited the 84-year-old ‘Mary Poppins’ actor to lay down some lyrics, under the pseudonym DVD.

Dick said: “At my age, my generation, we are not particularly rap-crazy. Rap has a great beat, but I swear to God, I have never been able to understand one word. I don’t know what they’re saying."

Chad praised Dick’s efforts, however, saying the track wasn’t entirely serious in the first place. He said: "I am certainly no rapper but I helped guide Dick with it the first day. It was pretty funny. He can come away with it, because it’s supposed to be silly — that’s not his normal thing. He comes from a different world, but he was up for it, man."

The ‘Rhythm Train’ album – which is meant for children and follows the story of a musical train which goes around the world – is a project helmed by singer Leslie Bixle, who wrote the songs and appears with Dick and Chad. Song les include ‘Roly Poly in My Guacamole’, ‘Cherry Pants’ and ‘Lotta Dinosaur’. The album is available through the internet. Photo: Fame Pictures

Apparently 20-Somethings Really like TBS? Who knew?

With the just announced Conan O’Brien move to TBS, I thought it might be interesting to note that TBS stacks up quite well among cable network’s in primetime among the important adults 18-34 and 18-49 ratings.

TBS was a solid #2 in adults 18-49 to perennial non-sports playoff leader USA, and an even closer #2 among adults 18-34 for the first quarter of 2010. Because some of TBS’ late primetime ratings heft comes from Family Guy repeats, I’d guess they’re even stronger among the male demographics (that Conan likely favors) than USA, but I don’t have the numbers for that gender breakdown.

Update: I just looked at the March, 2010 numbers only (as opposed to the Q1 numbers below), and TBS was #1 in cable primetime for adults 18-34 averaging 599,000 to USA’s second place 520,000, and MTV was well behind in third with 387,000.

It looks to me like Conan picked the right cable network for his audience.

For Q1 2010, here were the top 10 cable networks for adults 18-49:
Net Adults 18-49 (000)

Dragon Age: Origins Awakening just dropped. Mass Effect 2 is still shy of two months old. That said, many fans are already wondering what's next for Bioware. UGO's Tracey John caught up with vice president Dr. Greg Zeschuk and CEO Dr. Ray Muzyka at GDC last week and picked their brains about the future of Bioware's role-playing franchises.

"We're planning for 17 games," joked Dr. Ray when asked how many Dragon Age sequels to expect. "Well, both Dragon Age and Mass Effect are franchises so they have different strategies and different kinds of story arcs but we plan on continuing to make games and worlds and expanding on those worlds in both franchises," the CEO added, continuing, "Both in different ways, but we want to continue to provide content to fans, whether that be separate games or new adventures that have very different kinds of gameplay. So we have some cool stuff for both of them that we're exploring that'll be fun and different for the fans, and yet in a familiar setting at the same time.

Tedder to the legend/goddess/queen: health comes first

mods, reject the other post if you haven't, I forgot to put a cut.

Here's the thing about OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder's recent comments about Lady Gaga in People magazine: He doesn't remember actually making them, but that doesn't mean he's backing down from them either.

A quick refresher: Late last month, after footage surfaced of Gaga nearly collapsing onstage during a concert in New Zealand (an incident she chalked up to "jet lag"), Tedder supposedly told People that he was concerned for LG's health. "Gaga has to be careful," he was quoted as saying. "She's already larger than life. How do you get larger than that?"

It seemed like a fairly harmless comment, though as it began to make its way around various gossip sites, all of that changed. When MTV News spoke to Tedder and his OneRepublic mates last week, we decided to ask him to clarify his statement. And, as it turns out, he did a lot more than that.

"I've had two or three people ask me about that, and I had friends who picked up People magazine last week or the week before, and they're like, 'You're in People, someone asked you about Lady Gaga,' " Tedder said. "I don't even remember saying that. To be honest, I don't even know that I did."

At press time, a rep for People had not responded to MTV News' request for comment.

While Tedder doesn't recall saying he was concerned about Gaga's health, he freely admits that he is. After all, he's been through the wringer a time or two and knows how taxing and tormenting it can be, and he doesn't want to see Gaga go down the same path he did.

Conan's Move to TBS: How It Went Down (Don't Worry, No One Screwed George Lopez)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

BREAKING NEWS! 3RD UPDATE 12:30 PM: We've confirmed that Conan does own his new late night talk show on TBS, and it will be Los Angeles-based ("he's not moving his kids again"), and the deal is "very long-term" paying him $10+ million in upfront salary (in addition to his profitable equity).

Fox just issued this statement: "Conan is a great talent and we wish him every success."

Sources tell us that Fox's senior executive team which had been in discussions with Team Conan told O'Brien's representatives last week that it didn't look like a deal could happen imminently because of all the clearances necessary to launch a late-night show. Many of Fox's O&O and affiliate stations were locked into long-term syndication deals for the time slot following their local late night news. "They couldn't unwind the long-term syndication deals with 30 Rock and The Office," a source tells us. Insiders stress that Fox still wanted Conan despite the structural issues. They also insist Peter Rice did everything he could, but that a deal just couldn't be made immediately. They say Fox wasn't shell-shocked by today's news and in fact knew about it in advance, but the broadcast network had agreed to keep all information confidential while O'Brien negotiated elsewhere and sealed the deal.

Another Ausiello blind item: Major character dying on a drama

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Come season-finale time, characters are always dropping dead on us. But a certain increasingly popular primetime drama’s decision to kill off one unlucky stiff really surprised me. Why? Put on your thickest blind-item specs, and I’ll tell you!

First, the character in question is both an original castmember and a series regular. Second, said character is played by an Aushole fave — and if that doesn’t guarantee job security, what, I ask you, does? Third, there’s been no hint whatsoever that the Grim Reaper would be making a cameo. No mysterious headaches, no nagging cough, no bad hair days… nothin’.

So, who’s the guy (or gal) whose time is up?

I'm still trying to figure out the last blind item, and he does it again? WTF, Ausiello. And I have no guesses.

Wondercon Recap: Happy Town Pilot

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Wondercon kicked off Saturday with a special screening of the pilot for Happy Town. One of the first things the producer did when he walked on stage was to say the influences for his show were Twin Peaks and Stephen King novels. The idea to have Haplin as a small town came from King using small towns in all his books. In shows with murder and mystery, big cities can’t hold the same small town paranoia of, you know everyone; so you know the person who is committing the crimes.

Collapse )

The pilot starts out with a teenage girl sneaking home from a teenage boy dropping her off in the woods. She passes a pond. The camera changes focus to the pond where we see a man being murdered. We then have the opening credits and a change of pace. Haplin is shown. It looks like a quiet and quant little town. A girl named Henley is moving to the town. She says her reasons for choosing Haplin is that her mother used to vacation there when she was young. She also says her mother recently passed away. She is shown around by a very happy lady who tells her the sweet smell is the big bread factory in town and it often earns the town the nickname “Happy Town”.

The Conroy family is introduced, Amy Acker as Rachel, the wife and mother; Geoff Stults as Tommy, the husband and father; Sophia Ewaniuk as Emma, the daughter; M.C. Gainey as Griffin Conroy, Sheriff. They are a happy family eating breakfast together. Rachel suggests she wants to move to California the daughter says she doesn’t want any “earthcakes”. Tommy describes Haplin as the perfect place for them. He is the son of the Sheriff and they live in a town with no crime for the past 5 years. Tommy also wants to put his boat in the water and says it’s always done on the first day of spring, but everyone tells him it is too cold. The Sheriff pulls up and takes Tommy to a crowd of very upset people downtown. There is a banner some of the citizens want to have up that says, “Remember to never forget”. There is a symbol of a questions mark with a halo over it and a few people pictured, one is a little girl. Her father put up this banner and he wants it up, but the sheriff tells him they all agreed to leave this behind. The Magic Man is mentioned.

We cut back to Henley who is being introduced to her temporary residence at a boarding house. There are six other boarders;one runs the house, five are elderly widows and one is a Merritt Grieves (Sam Neal). The widows all lust after Merritt, and their main purpose on the show seems to be the comic relief . Henley is warned to never go to the top floor, or she will be immediately kicked out.

The murdered man is found. He has a clean hole through his head. The sheriff spaces out and mentions a Chloe, but no one knows a Chloe, and the sheriff does not remember saying it. They head to the bread factory where Rachel is giving a tour to some children, and Tommy and another deputy tell the woman her husband has been murdered. It is revealed he is the town pervert.

The teen girl from the beginning, Georgia, is at school and being made teased about her “drug dealer father” by a popular boy. It is revealed a minute later when they are alone that he is the boy who dropped her off at the beginning of the movie. She has heard about the murder and wonders how she will explain being by the pond at night. They have a Romeo and Juliet type of relationship. The boys family runs the town and the bread factory; while her family is poor and drug dealers.

The sheriff goes to the main eatery in town and sees Merritt. He tells Merritt to leave town and he has told him before. The sheriffs wedding ring falls to the floor (he is widowed) Merritt holds it in his hand before giving it back to the sheriff. Later the sheriff is in his office throwing a fit. Screaming about a Chloe and then eventually ends up cutting off his finger the wedding ring is on with an axe. He says, “Now that blood has been spilled he will be back.” A girl says her name is Chloe and she is on the phone with her mother. She has a tattoo on her back of the question mark with a halo. This girl looks like Henley. Henley is seen in the next scene walking to the third floor.

The panel was cut very short, but three of the main questions that were asked were: The uncovering of who murdered the main character in Twin Peaks was really the demise of the show, if you’re going to have a big reveal, how will you keep the audience interested? The answer was, they plan on revealing the Magic Man in the first season, which is 8 episodes, and it is someone you know. When this is revealed there will still be hundreds of unanswered questions, so people should come back for a new season on wanting answers to those questions.

The second question was to Amy Acker stating that we didn’t see very much of her in the pilot, would she have a bigger role in the episodes to come. She assured everyone that each character gets an episode focused on them, but overall the show is about the town and she is just a small part of that town.

The third question was about the dialogue. A man asked how old the writers were because some of the writing had old fashioned words, but Georgia, the teenage girl, used the word “dude” and it wasn’t the best choice of words. The writers responded with, we aren’t that old, it’s just a small town and they are old souls.

Overall the pilot was entertaining and has a lot of potential. There is an overwhelming amount of characters introduced in the first episode, but the writers guarantee that each person/plot point will be addressed gradually throughout the series, they just needed to get everyone in so the audience could say in episode eight, that they knew the Magic Man from the beginning of the series, and they can look back and see the clues.

"I can still vividly recall the day that Disney Design Group Artist Mike Sullivan visited us holding the image pictured above. My mind was reeling – was I actually seeing Steampunk Disney Characters? I even remember yelling “Steampunk!!” while getting strange glances from everyone around me. Well, everyone that is except for Mike as he created the artwork. So what is this “Steampunk” and why was I so excited? “Steampunk is like imagining today’s world with a Victorian-era perspective,” explained Mike. “For example, let’s pretend people in the 19th Century created the technology we use today. What would it look like? I think of these larger than life, steam-powered contraptions with lots of gears and switches.”

"Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark" ready to turn on the light...?

Here is something interesting I found on BroadwayWorld.com today:

Spider-Man Announcement:  Schedule Coming Soon!

..."Garfinkle, "Everything is ready. We're getting ready to make some announcements.""

Roger Friedman of Showbiz411.com is reporting that producer David Garfinkle has told him that Spider-Man will be ready to make its Broadway debut this fall and that an announcement will be made soon regarding the shows schedule, as well a casting announcement as to who will replace Evan Rachel Wood.

That's all the article really says, nothing else major. 

Being that Mr. Sheffield is a frequent commentator to Love Never Dies (something else that is also lacking in the intelligence booth), he has something to say about this mess:

  "Good Lord!  We already had Tarzan taking up a stage for two years (too many) on Broadway.  Can we give it a rest with the acrobatic men that can swing around in a jungle?  Also, what is with this title "Turn off the Dark".  How can you 'turn off the dark'?  If that means turning on a light bulb, does that mean that our villain is going to be an oversized lamp?  What is with you, Broadway?  Must we settle for spectacle only and ghastly sequels?  Thankfully Webber is busy looking for his brain with that Dorothy search."

And that's all Mr. Sheffield had to say.  So, stay tunned sometime in the following week for the full cast listing, plot, and schedule for 'Spider Man; Turn off the Dark".  Har.

(RTTNews) - Beyoncé is reportedly learning how to drive, with the help of husband Jay-Z.

According to U.K. newspaper The Sun, the "Single Ladies" star has been going out for morning lessons with Jay. They like to take the drives early, the paper reports, in order to avoid busy streets and paparazzi.

A source tells The Sun, "Jay and Beyoncé normally go out mid-morning when it's quiet. Their bodyguards are always in tow but they never ride in the car with them."

In other news, the release of Beyoncé's collaboration with Alicia Keys will have to wait. Keys has decided to delay "Put It In A Love Song" until this summer in order to put out her collaboration with Drake.


Film trailer for "A Little Help"

Jenna Fischer and Chris O'Donnell star in this coming of age tale about thirty-something growing pains and strange second chances. Laura (Fischer) is fed up with her dentist job, her workaholic husband Bob is never home, and her 12-year-old son won't stop texting. To top it off, when her sister's husband confesses his lifelong love for her, it sets off a chain reaction of lies and complications that sends Laura into a full-blown meltdown. Now she'll need more than "a little help" to get by.

Okay, I never heard of this movie until today and now I really want to see it. It looks pretty interesting.

Universal Buys Seth MacFarlane's R-Rated Comedy About Teddy Bear In MRC Film Deal

Universal Pictures has stepped up to acquire the $65 million budget Ted, an R-rated comedy that will mark the feature directorial debut of Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. The film, which was developed by Media Rights Capital, is most succinctly described as a "Hard R" comedy about a man and his teddy bear. The feature will mix live action and CG. MacFarlane will also co-star and provide the voice for the CG-generated title character. MacFarlane wrote the script with Family Guy cohorts Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, and he will produce with MRC, Scott Stuber and John Jacobs.

I’ve heard that the intention of Universal, MRC and MacFarlane is to get the film into production this year. That is subject to delicate discussions that are taking place right now between Fox, MacFarlane's WME reps and attorneys Karl Austen and Jim Jackoway. MacFarlane will work the film around his exhausting duties supervising the animated Fox shows Family Guy, The Cleveland Show and American Dad!, and providing a majority of the voices. Fox and MacFarlane have long wanted to make a Family Guy theatrical feature, but Ted will come first. Fox apparently was reluctant to embrace the teddy bear movie because of its  R-rating.

The Ted deal expands the relationship between MacFarlane and MRC that began with Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy, an online venture that involves Google and Youtube that will culminate in the creation of 60 sponsored online cartoon creations. As is the case with all product generated through Modi Wiczyk and Asif Satchu's MRC movie deals, MacFarlane will get an ownership stake in Ted, with Universal essentially making a long-term licensing deal for the film. Universal has been MRC's most consistent movie customer, and the next major project coming is The Adjustment Bureau, the George Nolfi-directed adaptation of the Philip K. Dick short story that stars Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. Universal releases the film July 30.


AC Slater Forces Hideous Fiancee to Have Plastic Sugery

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Mario Lopez is so body-obsessed, he persuaded his beautiful girlfriend, Courtney Mazza, to undergo rigorous personal training and encouraged surgery to get her into even better shape.

Sources say friends of Mazza are concerned that the image-conscious "Extra" host started nudging her to perfect her already amazing looks once they got together. They met in 2008 while appearing together in the Broadway revival of "A Chorus Line" and started dating the next year when Mazza moved to Burbank, Calif. She's expecting their baby in September.

One source told us, "Mario is obsessed with his image. He spends a lot of time working out, and he expects his girlfriend to do the same. Even his new book is called 'Extra Lean.'

"Courtney was engaged to a guy in Queens before she met Mario, but once they got together she dropped everything to go to California and be with him," the source said. "He encouraged her to work out with a trainer every day. She underwent a boob job and liposuction last spring. Once her body was perfect, he arranged for them to be photographed on a beach."

Lopez has previously described his obsession with fitness and once told TV Guide, "I never feel awake unless I'm sweating." He told the magazine he exercises for at least an hour a day, runs, bikes, swims, plays basketball and throws punches three times a week at a boxing gym.

But he says he's overjoyed at the prospect of becoming a dad, recently telling Ryan Seacrest's radio show, "I am so excited, dude, I'm fired up! I'm like a little kid waiting for Christmas!"

Asked about Mazza's exercise regimen and surgical procedures, a rep for Lopez said, "This is silly. Mario and Courtney are very much in love and focusing on the birth of their first child."

Doctor Who Regeneration Based On Drug Trips According To BBC Archives


The Doctor's transformations were meant to convey the "hell and dank horror" of the hallucinogenic drug, according to papers published on the BBC Archive.

Regenerations were introduced in 1966 to allow writers to replace the lead actor. New Doctor Matt Smith is the 11th Time Lord.

The papers also reveal the difficulties of bedding in a new Doctor.

In an internal memo dating from 1966, producers outlined how the original Doctor, William Hartnell, would be transformed for his successor Patrick Troughton.

Relationship Update: Brody Makes Things Permanent With Avril!

Just last week we reported that Brody Jenner and Avril Lavigne, who had previously been keeping their maybe-relationship under wraps, were spotted in a major lip-lock! So now that everything is out of the bag, we guess Brody's decided he likes Avril enough to put a ring ink on it.

This past weekend, Brav (we're taking credit for that) attended the opening of Mario Barth King Ink in Las Vegas and solidified their lasting(?) love by getting matching lightning bolt tattoos.

Just what is the significance of lightning bolts? Well, according to WikiAnswers, "Most people that have one single Lightning Bolt as a tattoo are fans of the National Football League San Diego Chargers, whose team logo is a single lightning bolt."

"Melrose Place" airs its Season 1 finale on Tuesday, April 13. While some of us at Zap2it are still hoping for a miracle, the likelihood of a Season 2 is getting more dubious by the day, so this may be your last chance to see long time favorites like Amanda Woodard (Heather Locklear) and Sydney Andrews (Laura Leighton).

Yes, Laura Leighton is back, as confirmed by the photos below. It's possible that she's returning for another flashback, but since Sydney appears to be sitting in the WPK offices, we're guessing that it's some kind of dream or vision of Amanda's.

Last week, Amanda fired Ella (Katie Cassidy) after setting her up to be busted for embezzlement. If anyone can out-blackmail Amanda Woodward, though, it's our girl Ella, so we're sure she won't go down without a fight.

Reggie Bush, the New Orleans Saints running back, was in Las Vegas this weekend with his rumored new girlfriend, Jessie James.

“Reggie Bush of the New Orleans Saints, at Coyote Ugly (New York-New York) on Friday where his rumored new girlfriend, Jessie James, performed a four-song set. On Saturday, he showed up in her cabana at Venus Pool Club at Caesars Palace. He recently broke up with socialite Kim Kardashian. James has been romantically linked to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.”

I might be wrong, but I think Reggie has a type.

The Kids Are All Right Trailer

The Kids Are All Right is the heartfelt new comedy from acclaimed director Lisa Cholodenko, starring Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, and Mark Ruffalo. Two teenaged children (Alice in Wonderlands Mia Wasikowska and Journey to the Center of the Earths Josh Hutcherson) get the notion to seek out their biological father and introduce him into the family life that their two mothers (Bening and Moore) have built for them. Once the donor (Ruffalo) is found, the household will never be the same, as family ties are defined, re—defined, and re—re—defined. The New York Times raves that its "a generous, nearly note—perfect portrait of a modern family," and Entertainment Weekly calls the movie "funny, smart and sexy!"

Can't wait!

I see you trying to dip into that Glenn Close cable magic

I’m hearing from multiple sources that Oscar winner Diane Keaton is circling the title role in HBO’s Tilda, a half-hour comedy series about a powerful and much-feared Hollywood blogger that is not based on powerful and much-feared Hollywood blogger Nikki Finke.

Writer/director Bill Condon (Kinsey, Dreamgirls) and Tell Me You Love Me creator Cynthia Mort are shepherding the project.

Erin Andrews criticized by fellow female sports journalist.

ESPN reporter Erin Andrews may be yearning for the days before she was on "Dancing With the Stars" -- when she was only being stalked. In a season where Pam Anderson and Kate Gosselin are on the hit show, it is Andrews who is taking most of the heat.

The 31-year-old sports reporter has had death threats, been romantically linked (wrongly, she claims) on the cover of People magazine with her dancing partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy and testified against a creep who secretly videotaped her nude in three hotel rooms.

But now it's really getting personal.

A fellow female sports reporter is saying Andrews "made a fool out of herself and a sham of her profession" by going on the dancing show in the first place. The column, by Toronto Star reporter Rosie DiManno, has caught the attention of the sports business like a bean ball. The reason? Because the criticism comes from a member of her own profession.

In an interview set to appear today on Sports Illustrated's Web site, Andrews says she's "confused" by the wrath of people in her own business.

"I'm not sure what damage I created for myself," she tells SI.com. "What am I doing to be a bimbo? I don't understand what I'm doing wrong."

The column, in fact, says she is "no bimbo," and blameless for the "preyed-upon misfortune" that has befallen her up to this point.

But it goes on to say that she had done harm to women in sports reporting by trying to be an entertainer on a show about ballroom dancing.

In quite the cheerful mood, Reese Witherspoon showed off her Oscar-winning smile as she stepped out in Beverly Hills, California on Monday (April 12).

Always up for a little day-beginning shopping, the "Monsters v. Aliens" actress popped into the Ron Herman store to check out the shop's selections.

The sighting comes just as Reese's ex-hubby Ryan Phillippe chatted with Howard Stern about the bum rap he's received since the two divorced in 2006.

Ryan, who recently split with actress Abbie Cornish, tells, "I've been dumped on in the press for relationship stuff since Reese [Witherspoon] and i divorced."

It's a Clean Ke$ha vs. Dirrrty Ke$ha Post!

Ke$ha Sebert is featured on Teen Vogue’s Music Issue 2010. "Two years ago, I was broke, and my bike had just gotten stolen,” she says. Animal, like the artist herself, is a mashup of punk snarl and party splash topped with a thick lacquer of sparkle. “I leave a trail of glitter behind me—like Hansel and Gretel,” she says proudly. “Any guy I make out with has glitter on his face for at least three days.”

Playboy rejects Kate Gosselin

Kate Gosselin has had some tough blows this year and Hugh Hefner has dealt her another one.

When asked if there was any possibility that Momzilla would grace the glossy covers of Playboy, Hef said, "No! No!" And the original playboy added insult to injury by suggesting he doesn't even know why she's on "Dancing with the Stars."

He explained, "I don't think she's a celebrity." That's the second Gosselin rejected from the porno business. It has gotta hurt to hear that no one wants to check out your goody basket.


Ricky Martin didn't know he was gay according to his old "girlfriend"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Ricky dated Rebeca de Alba (she's a TV personality in Mexico and 45 years old) for years and years off and on. He was actually dating her at the time of his famous Copa de la Vida performance at the Grammys. She says she's the love of his life and then contradicts herself a lot. I translated the best bits of info for you. It's also a TL;DR version already but I bolded stuff. Do enjoy~

- He came out to her years ago when they broke up: "It wasn't easy for me because as a woman I saw him being lost, but I was hoping we'd get back together because he's one of the best things that ever happened to me. I wasn't just his girlfriend. I was his woman".

- She says people manipulate the relationship all the time, claiming it was never real or that it was a front to cover Ricky's personal life. She says it was 100% real.

- "When I was dating him he didn't know he was gay. I didn't either. We were a man and a woman wanting to be together".

- She says they broke up because of scheduling conflicts, not wanting to have children or having different projects. It had nothing to do with him being gay. Gurl, then why did he come out to you when you broke up?. THEN she says they were very much in love until he "changed his sexual preferences and left her".

- "We had a solid relationship. We wanted to get married and have a family. Seven years ago we were still together." I thought you said you broke up because one of you didn't want to have kids.

- "If he chose a different path after being with me, I respect that" ...

- "He told me he was gay, so when the news came out I wasn't shocked. I know the world was very shocked (lol) but I knew it years after we broke up and I gave him all my support". GURL, get your story straight. did he tell you when you broke up? did you break up for that reason or was it years after you broke up? I mean you're not eleven. shit.

- "I've been unfairly judged, many of my peers in the press have lied about me and said I'm a... nevermind. It's not worth repeating. It's not true. I know the truth. I'm a woman that lives life with intensity, transparency and authenticity".

The last rumor she was refering to, I assume, is that she's gay too. That's been the word around for years in Mexico, and the press has speculated that the relationship was a front to protect each other because Latinamerica, and particularly Mexico, is still very conservative(though not as much as it once was...).

The Vatican suddenly forgives the Beatles. Rejoice!

Someone just received a digitally remastered “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” for Easter! The Vatican has finally made peace with the Beatles, 40 years after the band’s breakup. A tribute in Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano cited drug use, “dissolute and uninhibited lives,” and John Lennon’s 1966 comment that the group was more famous than Jesus as things which had previously offended the Vatican.

But now! “Listening to their songs, all of this seems distant and meaningless,” L’Osservatore said. “Their beautiful melodies, which changed forever pop music and still give us emotions, live on like precious jewels.” Oh, like hidden gems? I’m familiar with those. Still, the Abbey Road cover had a crosswalk on it.

I can’t believe the Vatican relented. God.


John can FINALLY rest in peace, obviously.

Paul Morley (rock critic) discusses Lou Reed's "Metal Machine Music"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I've said it before and I'll say it again. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Actually, this whole piece should consist of the words "I've said it before and I'll say it again", repeated again and again considering that it is about Lou Reed's brutal, farcical celebration of repetition and its aesthetic and cultural ramifications, Metal Machine Music, and therefore, to cut a long story short, about how history repeats itself.

Not a lot of it is bolded, because it's a really interesting read, imo
