Julianna Margulies For W Magazine

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I’m addicted to “The Good Wife” at the moment staring Julianna Margulies as ‘Alicia Florrick’.

I must admit I only started watching because I was intrigued to see Chris Noth act as someone other than Mr Big, but Julianna gives an outstanding performance in the hit drama.

She’s the cover star of W magazine’s May 2010 issue, which see’s her wearing a red leopard print Dolce & Gabbana dress photo

The rest of her editorial sees her wearing Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Bottega Veneta and Christian Dior.

Julianna is a TV actress, but she gives movie star commanding performances hence winning both a Golden Globe and SAG Award for Best Actress this year.

In the magazine she discusses her family, her success on “The Good Wife” and how she’s dealing with getting older in the entertainment industry.

Library of Congress to archive all public tweets

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

If you've ever "tweeted," your words will soon be digitally archived in the U.S. Library of Congress.

Library director of communications Matt Raymond made the announcement Wednesday on the library's blog.

He said "every public tweet, ever, since Twitter's inception" in March 2006, will be included in the archive.

"Expect to see an emphasis on the scholarly and research implications of the acquisition," Raymond wrote. "I'm no PhD, but it boggles my mind to think what we might be able to learn about ourselves and the world around us from this wealth of data."

While each tweet is 140 characters or less, Twitter processes more than 50 million tweets every day, amounting to billions of tweets since the beginning, according to a Twitter blog posted Wednesday by co-founder and creative director Biz Stone.

"It is our pleasure to donate access to the entire archive of public tweets to the Library of Congress for preservation and research," Stone wrote. "A tiny percentage of accounts are protected, but most of these tweets are created with the intent that they will be publicly available."

Stone noted some restrictions to the access Twitter has granted to the library. He says there will be a six-month delay before the tweets can be archived for "non-commercial research, public display by the library itself, and preservation."

Raymond meanwhile highlighted various tweets he says he expects will draw much attention — the first-ever tweet from Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey and U.S. President Barack Obama's tweet about winning the 2008 election, for example.

Brooke Shields & Brendan Fraser in Boston yesterday promoting ‘‘Furry Vengeance"



BOSTON, MA: Brendan Fraser has made four films in the Bay State, including the Ben Affleck/Matt Damon prep drama “School Ties,’’ but last summer’s shoot was a first for Brooke Shields, Fraser’s costar in “Furry Vengeance.’’ The duo, in town yesterday to promote the kid-friendly flick, told us they enjoyed their time here. (The film was shot on the North Shore.) Shields spent some quality time with her sister, who teaches in Massachusetts, and walking along the Charles River, where her father once rowed in the Head of the Charles. But Fraser and Shields’s favorite spot in Boston? “It was definitely o ya [the sushi restaurant],’’ said Shields. “Brendan introduced me, and it was incredible.’’ The pair had lunch yesterday at Scampo. Speaking of which, Chelsea Handler dined at Scampo over the weekend, and then raved about Lydia Shire’s restaurant at the Liberty Hotel on “Chelsea Lately’’ Monday. Maybe Cloris Leachman was watching, because she was in Tuesday.

Peter Steele Has Died of Heart Failure *updated*

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


TYPE O NEGATIVE front man Peter Steele is rumored to have died of heart failure earlier today (Wednesday, April 14).

Mistress Juliya of Fuse TV wrote on her Twitter page earlier tonight that she spoke to TYPE O NEGATIVE guitarist Kenny Hickey just before midnight New York time, and that Kenny confirmed that the rumors were true.

Revolver magazine's editor-in-chief Brandon Geist also posted on Twitter that he has heard reports of Steele's passing. "Hoping [the rumors] are not true, but the source is good," he wrote.

It should be noted that there ***has been no official statement*** released by TYPE O NEGATIVE or the band's management to corroborate these reports.

Back in 2005, many people were shocked when they logged into the TYPE O NEGATIVE web site and saw a gravestone with the words "[P]eter Steele - 1962 - 2005 .... Free At Last" carved on it. According to Epinions.com, there were rumors at the time that Steele was sick (with anything from cancer to AIDS), was on his deathbed, attempted suicide ... and the list goes on. Needless to say, it turned out that Steele was very much alive and the gravestone was merely a joke, albeit one the wasn't viewed as being in particularly good taste.

Steele was born Petrus T. Ratajczyk on January 4, 1962 in Brooklyn, New York. He stood 6' 7" (201 cm) tall, and had a low, bass-heavy voice, which was one of the most recognizable features in TYPE O NEGATIVE's music.

Before forming TYPE O NEGATIVE, Steele played for the metal group FALLOUT and the thrash band CARNIVORE.

****UPDATE*****
Rumors have been circulating on the net for the last 2 hours about Type o Negative frontman Peter Steele being dead. The band faked Peter Steele's death in 2005 and there have been several other rumors before and after. Due to this, The Gauntlet held off on posting...until Mistress Juliya just tweeted the following:

"Peter Steele passed today. I loved my friend...our idol...my heart is with his band and family..." followed by "he passed of heart failure today. Just spoke to Kenny"

We still hope it is a rumor, hoax, or anything other than being true, but credible information is coming in to the contrary.

This will suck if true as my last Type-O show was with Hatebreed...not the way I want to remember them.
Will post more throughout the night as info comes down.

****UPDATE 9:18pm PST
Beginning to see tweet's from Peter Steeles friends and family, those who would know if this is rumor or not stating the singer has fallen.

****UPDATE 10:21pm PST@GateKeeperZuul just reported to us that the official Type O Negative forums have now been locked barring all members access from them. (this is true, I tried to access and it was a no-go.)

****UPDATE 10:52pm PST Full Metal Jackie has just stated the passing of Peter Steele is confirmed....Anyone care to join me in raising a goblet of red wine?

“Food used to be really important to me. I loved steak, I loved hamburgers, I loved all that stuff. I can’t believe how irresponsible I was, eating what I ate….”

Emmy-winning talk show host and American Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres may be the first Shape cover model to not don a two piece for her guest sport on the health & wellness mag — but the comedienne does share some helpful tips for how she keeps her body in tip-top condition.

El — a yoga fanatic — adheres to a strict diet that excludes all meats, diary, and sugar.

“No animals, no dairy, nothing processed; a lot of soup, veggies, rice, beans, legumes. I want to be on my toes; I want to have energy. And as much as the diet seems like a sacrifice, it’s helping me.”

If there’s hope for her…..

In news that should serve as a beacon of hope for singletons everywhere, there’s allegedly loud ramblings around Hollywood that a wedding is on the horizon for 21-year-old celebuspawn Rumer Willis and her longtime BF Micah Alberti. We hear Alberti and the eldest daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore are in the process of checking out rings and combing through venues for a ceremony that could take place as early as June.

”I know they already have gone ring-shopping and are debating where to [get married]. … My best guess would be very far from L.A,” a family friend blabs.

NOOOOOO!: Melissa and Tammy Etheridge Separate



Melissa and Tammy Etheridge have ended their nearly nine-year relationship.

"Melissa and Tammy Etheridge are saddened to announce that they are now separated," Melissa's rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The former couple add in a statement: "We ask for consideration and respect for our family as we go through this difficult period."

Melissa, 48, and Tammy (formerly Tammy Lynn Michaels) exchanged vows in Malibu in September 2003.

Tammy, 35, gave birth to their children – son Miller and daughter Johnnie Rose – in 2006, after Etheridge was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004.

Etheridge is also mom two children, Bailey, 13, and Beckett, 11, with former partner Julie Cypher.

Another Joins Pirates of the Caribbean

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Walt Disney Pictures has announced that French actress Astrid Bergès-Frisbey has been personally picked by producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Rob Marshall to star in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides as Syrena, a beautiful and alluring young mermaid encountered by Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow.

A star of stage and screen in her native Paris, the 23-year-old actress born in Barcelona to French-American and Catalan parents has appeared in films such as Bruc and La Première Étoile as well as work on television and in a French production of Peter Shaffer's "Equus." To date, none of those films have made their way to the U.S. shores so that "On Stranger Tide" will more than likely be the actresses introduction not only to moviegoers in the United States, but much of the rest of the world as well.

Scheduled to start filming in Hawaii, Great Britain and Los Angeles in June for a May 20, 2011 release, the fourth installment is looking to build on the $2.7 billion made globally by the original trilogy.

EXCLUSIVE: Taylor Lautner Spotted At Gay Party

Y'all ready for this? LimeLife has just received an exclusive report that Twilight teen-dream Taylor Lautner attended a party at the home of a well-known gay socialite last weekend. We have the scoop, and the news has people everywhere cheering! (Except, perhaps, for teen girls.)

This may explain the wishy-washy Taylor Swift situation. A source with close ties to the Velvet Mafia, (also known as "The Gay Mafia") has told Limelife that Taylor Lautner partied at the home of openly gay X-Men director Bryan Singer last week. Singer's party kicked off Thursday evening, and Lautner spent a few hours there before leaving well into the wee hours of the night.

To be clear, Taylor Lautner was not seen kissing any other party-goers (a group composed almost completely of gay men), but, as our source says, Lautner "got the party -- and now the gay community -- buzzing about his presence."

And his role as Stretch Armstrong in an upcoming movie based on the popular toy from the Seventies is only stirring speculation -- adds our source, "Taylor is the new great gay hope. Ricky Martin coming out is about as exciting to the gay community as Larry King posing naked in Playgirl. The mere thought of Taylor Lautner being gay is what gay men everywhere are dreaming about."

We've been hearing the same for the last year. Our source noted that Bryan Singer is well-known for throwing parties with loads of gay Hollywood types flanking his home. The insider also offered this insight: "Think about it. Teenage girls have moved on from Taylor Lautner to Justin Bieber. Maybe they sense something ."

Okay, that may be taking it too far...but an intense report nonetheless!

Prince William to join RAF search-and-rescue unit



LONDON—Britain's Prince William could soon be part of the Royal Air Force's search-and-rescue operations in Wales.

The 27-year-old prince will be posted to the RAF's base in Anglesey, Wales, if he completes his pilot training. His London office said Thursday that he would take up his duties in September, if he successfully completes his course.

William, who is second in line to the throne, would be flying Sea King helicopters as part of 22 Squadron, one of Britain's six search and rescue units. He is currently in training at the base.

The base is located about 220 miles (350 kilometers) west of London, on the Irish Sea.

Sharlto Copley Returns to Sci-Fi

You can't park there, it's a handicapped zone

Sharlto Copley (District 9, upcoming The A-Team) is in talks to star in
DreamWorks' I Am Number Four, based on the first of a six-book science fiction
series by James Frey and Jobie Hughes.

He would join Alex Pettyfer (Beastly) in the D.J. Caruso-directed film, adapted
by Al Gough and Miles Millar.

The franchise is about a group of nine earthbound alien teens who escaped their
planet just before it was destroyed by a hostile species. While the high
school-aged kids assimilate, the title character (Pettyfer) discovers that he is
being hunted by the enemy that blew up his planet.

Copley is playing a man who hailed from the alien world's serving class but now
is the title character's adult guardian and mentor.

Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg are producing. Chris Bender and J.C. Spink are
executive producing with David Valdes.

James Frey = Million Little Pieces guy? I thought they
permanently revoked his author card…

Kristin Kreuk replaced!

EXCLUSIVE: In a last-minute recasting,

Sara Fletcher has been tapped as the female lead on Josh Schwartz’s comedy pilot for CBS Hitched. Fletcher replaces Smallville alumna Kristin Kreuk, who was originally cast in the role.

The switch was made Wednesday, just before the multicamera pilot’s table read. Kreuk starred on two drama series, including her star-making turn on Smallville, and she was wonderful in an arc on Schwartz's NBC dramedy Chuck this season but she has never done a half-hour sitcom and  Hitched ultimately proved not a good fit for her.

The pilot, which Schwartz co-wrote with Matt Miller, centers on a newlywed couple, Rachel (Fletcher) and Brett (Jack Carpenter), dealing with their family and friends. The pilot’s cast also include comedy veterans Eugene Levy, Kurtwood Smith and Sharon Lawrence as the couple’s parents. Fletcher, who starred on Comedy Central’s My Secret Girlfriend, is with Gersh and Schachter Entertainment.

Roger Ebert reviews 'Death at a Funeral' - better than the original



Oh, I know a lot of "Death at a Funeral" is in very bad taste. That's when I laughed the most. I don't laugh at movies where the characters are deliberately being vulgar. But when they desperately don't want to be--now that's funny. Consider the scene when Uncle Russell eats too much nut cake and is seized by diarrhea. And Norman wrestles him off his wheelchair and onto the potty, and gets his hand stuck underneath. Reader, I laughed. I'm not saying I'm proud of myself. That's not the way I was raised. But I laughed.

I laughed all the way through, in fact. This is the best comedy since "The Hangover," and although it's almost a scene-by-scene remake of a 2007 British movie with the same title, it's funnier than the original. For the character of Frank, the mysterious guest who wants to speak privately with the dead man's sons, it even uses the same actor, Peter Dinklage, and he's funnier this time. Maybe that's because when a comedy gets on a roll, everything is funnier.

With Two Queens, How Could You Not Love It?

Instead of going on Rihanna’s tired azz tour, we hear Nicki Minaj might be hitting the road with pop superstar Lady Gaga!

Rumors are beginning to swirl saying that Gaga’s people heard that Nicki wasn’t touring this summer, so they hit up the Young Money rapper’s people so that they could sit down and start finalizing all the details. So expect an official announcement/press release pretty soon as dates for some, if not most, of the upcoming shows in North America are already on sale.

We believe this is a much bigger move for Nicki as most people would consider her the “Lady Gaga of Hip-Hop” anyhow.

'Dances With Wolves' is looking for a home on Broadway?


Apparently, there is now news of adapting the novel Dances With Wolves into a Broadway Musical.   This is what came across to me courtsey of BroadwayWorld.com:



Collapse )


Mr Sheffield says: 



  Dances with Wolves is a good film.  Dances With Wolves can be a very intriguing and very promising musical onstage.  It's no Avatar, but it has a far better story.  Also, what was not covered in the movie [Dances with Wolves] can be covered by the simplicity of song through passages from the book.  I'm not saying that I'm behind the idea of having the entire score sounding reminscent of 'Native American' music, but if you want to go that route, you need someone who can write inspiring lyrics and someone who can write a book that attracted the audiences for Les Miserables or Miss Saigon.  We shall see how things go... I'm not entirely behind it.  At least Kevin Costner can't sing. 

EDIT:  What musicals would you like to see onstage? :D

Taylor Swift Invites UCSD A Capella Group To Perform On ACM's

Oh-so-tech-savvy Taylor Swift recently discovered a college group called the Tritones singing her smash hit, 'You Belong With Me,' a capella on YouTube (watch the video below). The country superstar was so enchanted by the honeyed blend of voices in UC San Diego's 16-voice group that she reportedly tracked down their student manager to ask if they'd be interested in recording another of her songs.

Taylor then took it one step further, inviting the Tritones to sing with her on Sunday night's ACM Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. They'll perform together live this Sunday night (April 18) at 8:00 PM ET on CBS.

Taylor is nominated for five awards -- Top Female Vocalist, Song of the Year for 'You Belong With Me' (both artist and songwriter), Video of the Year for 'You Belong With Me,' and for Entertainer of the Year, which is fan-voted this year.

Fat Joe Tries To Be Relevant Through Ricky Martin

Terror Squad leader Fat Joe has shared his reaction to fellow Latin artist Ricky Martin announcing his homosexuality.

"Everybody's their own man," he wrote. "And if Ricky Martin felt like he had to come out of the closet and that's what he does and that's what he represents, then good for him. It ain't for me to make a decision whether he should come out or whatever the case may be.

The most disgusting things that I've seen, and I'm not saying about being gay at all, it's when you have artists who have a wife and live with a wife and don't admit they have a wife and two kids and thinking that's for the image. How do you think that makes a girl feel walking around knowing I live with this guy, I love him, I share everything with him but he never wanna say I'm his wife? So you can just imagine what Ricky Martin was going through. With me, it's all about being comfortable with who you are and if you gay, fine, be gay. I'm not gay but fine, you do what you do. I'll do what I do. I think it's 2010 and everybody should be allowed to live happy and live their lives and whatever makes you happy, then so be it." (VIBE)

Lars Von Trier Taps Dunst For `Melancholia'

Melancholia is a sci-fi disaster film that will shoot July through September in Southern Sweden, with Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling, Alexander Skarsgaard, Stellan Skarsgaard and Udo Kier also attached to roles. Dunst is currently starring with Jim Sturgess in Upside Down. Bastard, the short film she directed and co-wrote, will premiere at the Tribeca Film Fest and was just accepted into Cannes.

Daniel Radcliffe to Star in ‘How to Succeed’ Revival on Broadway

How do you succeed on Broadway without really trying? It doesn’t hurt when you have a star from one of the most successful film franchises of all time in a leading role. Daniel Radcliffe, the “Harry Potter” star — who, in fairness, works hard in all his endeavors, we’re sure — will play the ambitious window washer J. Pierrepont Finch in a revival of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” that is planned for Broadway in the spring of 2011, its producers announced on Thursday.

The musical revival, with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert, will be Mr. Raddlicliffe’s first Broadway role since the revival of “Equus” that ran at the Broadhurst Theater in 2008 and 2009. Rob Ashford, (“Promises, Promises”; “Curtains”) will direct “How to Succced,” and it will be produced by Broadway Across America (John Gore, Thomas B. McGrath, Beth Williams), Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. The original production (with a cast that included Robert Morse and Charles Nelsen Reilly opened in 1961 and ran for more than 1,400 performances; a film version was released in 1967, and a previous Broadway revival, starring Matthew Broderick and Megan Mullally, was mounted in 1995.

The 25 Best Movie Remakes of All Time




Let's face it, Hollywood is full of unoriginal ideas; just look at the disproportionate number of films based on books, plays, TV shows and even Broadway musicals that were themselves based on movies. But every now and then, that most unoriginal of green-lit ideas, the remake of a popular or critically acclaimed movie -- like current releases 'Clash of the Titans,' 'Death at a Funeral' and the upcoming 'Nightmare on Elm Street' reload -- can yield a film that equals, or in rare cases, surpasses the original.

After navigating tricky waters and narrowing down the definition of a remake to a movie clearly based on another feature-length film (and not, say, yet another adaptation of a classic text like a Shakespearean play or a Jane Austen novel), here is our list of the 25 best. That means you won't find adaptations like 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,' shorts-based films a la '12 Monkeys,' or reinterpretations like 'Clueless' or 'Moulin Rouge.'

What you will find on this list is the Moviefone staff's highly subjective picks for the best remakes in movie history -- a crop of films worth watching even if you're completely unfamiliar with the originals.

Why Didn't Betty/Daniel Happen?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In the end, Betty chose ... nobody
. Instead, she moved to London for a great new job opportunity, where she not so coincidentally ran into Daniel, who had recently relinquished the editorship of Mode to Wilhelmina. Betty and Daniel agreed to have dinner together, but... is it a date?

Though that distinction is left intentionally ambiguous, elsewhere in the world of Ugly Betty, there was plenty of closure. Marc made his feelings known to Troy. On Marc's urging, Willy decided that true love trumped schemes and called a truce with Claire. Amanda found her birth father. Ignacio learned to let his daughters live their lives, which included Hilda, Justin and Bobby moving out of the family house in Queens and over the bridge into Manhattan.

TVGuide.com chatted with series creator and executive producer Silvio Horta about the choices he made in the series-finale episode. How did cancellation change his five-season game plan? Does he think Betty and Daniel will date? Read on to find out...

TVGuide.com: There are, like, 300 scenes in this episode. Did it ever feel overstuffed to you or like you had too much to accomplish?
Silvio Horta: Having seen the first cut of it, which was about five minutes longer, my perspective was like, this is way too much going on, but we need to deal with it all. I don't think we gave short shrift to anything. It was important to me that the core cast all had something [in the way of closure]. If we hadn't explored the Justin story line this season, for example, that would've been a huge regret.

TVGuide.com: If you knew you were getting another season, how would this season have been different?
Horta: We would've still gotten the braces off and a lot of it would've been about Betty's physical transformation. The initial gimmick of the show was this girl hiding under these bangs, bushy eyebrows and glasses. That was a great way in, but a part of me wishes I had loosened it up earlier, in Season 3 or something. Looking back, I wish we hadn't held off on her transformation as long as we did.

TVGuide.com: You used to be dead set against a Betty-Daniel romance. Yet something happens between them here. What changed your mind?
Horta: The core relationship of the show has always been Betty and Daniel. Whenever we got away from that, people felt the show suffered. The chemistry they have — whether someone can feel it as romantic chemistry or it's just a strong bond — is just palpable. It drove the show. That question was always there: Will Betty and Daniel end up together?

It was probably a conversation I had with America. It was so obvious; they've been there for each other for the entire course of the series and to end with that possibility — and what I think you end with is a possibility — with anyone but Daniel seemed off. Are they together after that? I don't even want to say. I have my version in my head of what happens after she walks away from him, but I think everyone can have their own interpretation.

Soundgarden to have secret reunion show in Seattle Friday night?


Billboard.com is saying that Friday night, Soundgarden will reunite for the first time since 1997 to play a show at Showbox at the Market.

The guys at The End say they've heard from numerous sources about the possible show, where they may be filming something. As they point out, it's pretty mysterious that the Showbox has no other show scheduled for Friday night.

At this point none of this has been officially confirmed, and it is unknown whether the show will be open to the public.
Lead singer Chris Cornell has definitely been in Seattle this week, as can be told from this April 11 tweet:
Beautiful spring day in Seattle. Cherry trees drooping under the wieght (sic) of huge blossoms. Evil is lurking somewhere. I can feel it.

The Seattle group recently announced they had reunited and were going to play at Lollapalooza alongside Lady GaGa.

holly was the best thing that happened to him, he blew it.

Hugh Hefner: I Was 'Blessed Beyond Words' When Holly Madison Left Me



Hugh Hefner’s former number-one girlfriend Holly Madison left the ultimate “Playboy” devastated when she ended the relationship in the summer of 2008, but as the age-old adage says, everything happens for a reason and Hef now says his split was for the absolute best.

“(With Crystal Harris) I have found the relationship that I thought I had found with Holly. In retrospect I do believe in the most recent years, I was without being aware of it, starting to look for a more serious one-on-one relationship,” Hef told Pop Tarts. “And when it did not work out with Holly, I was blessed beyond words to so quickly find someone who really just was waiting. Crystal is very romantic, very sweet.”

And ever since the Shannon twins parted ways with the mansion earlier this year, Hefner (who normally has multiple leading ladies, as many as seven at one time) has no desire to boost his brood of girlfriends and (shock!) is ready to settle down – for good.

“I’m in a serious relationship that I think is going to last—with luck—the rest of my life. Yes, Crystal Harris: a keeper, a very special lady,” Hef continued. “I think she’s the real deal and we have many common interests despite the age disparity. We just fit very naturally.”

WHITNEY HOUSTON KILLS IT, IT BEING YOUR SPIRIT



Her fans may always love her, but catty reviewers across Britain aren't exactly singing Whitney Houston's praises following a bumpy return to the stage Tuesday night in rough-and-tumble Birmingham.

Invariably, every negative review included some variation of "Houston, we have a problem," but when they began describing the singer's vocals and overall stamina, even the normally prim BBC got in on the act, saying the singer was "panting more than John Prescott running for the bus," a reference to a well-known (and chubby) politician from Wales.

Robert Pattinson To Play Kurt Cobain? Not So Fast

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Courtney Love has officially shot down rumors that "Twilight" heartthrob Robert Pattinson would play her late husband Kurt Cobain in a biopic based on the musician's life story. "Isn't that so stupid, who would cast him?" she told The Canadian Press during an interview yesterday. "That's just wrong, no offense."

Love also shared news that her pal, Sting's wife Trudie Styler, will be producing the film, and gave suggestions as to who might best fill Cobain's dingy sneakers. Her top picks? Ryan Gosling and Scottish actor James McAvoy.

Love's comments were in response to a recent tabloid report claiming that the actor had signed on to star in a biopic based on the troubled Nirvana frontman's life story. The report sparked a a massive online frenzy, despite there being little substance to support the story.

British tabloid The Sun (a publication on no one's short list for Reputable News Source of the Year) kicked off the rumor on Friday with a report claiming that getting cast as Cobain was Pattinson's "dream role." The story went so far as to suggest that the star had been in "regular contact" with Love, and that Scarlett Johansson was Love's choice to portray her in the flick. The coverage also included a photo of both young stars mocked up to look like the greasy-locked pair, who enjoyed a famously tumultuous relationship before Cobain's death in 1994. Johansson's representative says that she has not been approached for the part.

As countless blogs and news sources breathlessly re-reported the news, Spin.com saw fit to contact Love's rep Jonathan Daniel, who shot down the rumor as best he could: "That's an amazing story, and the first I've heard of any of this. They manage to fit pretty much everyone in Hollywood into an article without one fact check and include a 'My First Photoshop' job as a 'mock up' to boot!" Spin.com went on to note that there is, indeed, a Cobain-related project in the works at Universal, but that its working title is "Heavier Than Heaven," not "All Apologies," another fact that The Sun had gotten wrong.

Bret Michaels remains under medical supervision; tour dates postponed



(For those of you who don't know, Bret had an emergency appendectomy at 1 a.m. on Monday)

Bret remains under medical supervision at an undisclosed private care facility specializing in the rehabilitation of diabetic patients. While the surgery went well and Doctors are optimistic that the rocker will make a full recovery, the fact that he was exhausted due to his rigorous schedule prior to the surgery and coupled with the fact that he has diabetes, the surgery has taken its toll. Even for non diabetic patients the recovery from surgery can be long and painful. Doctors were amazed at how good of health Bret was in being a 47 year-old diabetic. However the main focus and concern right now is that he is able to rest, recover and maintain good blood sugar levels while doing so.

NY Housewife Bethenny Frankel: I'm a Swollen Beast

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Real Housewives of New York reality celebrity Bethenny Frankel can’t seem to get over how pregnancy is changing her body. Now that she is eight months along, she says she feels like a “swollen beast.”

By now, Bethenny is used to putting her personal life on public display and she had no qualms about posting a picture of her pregnant self in a bikini on her Facebook account.

“I may be having a girl. I’m a swollen beast. My face exploded," Frankel informed her fans in April 9 Tweet.

While she looks like she really hasn’t gained that much weight in her legs and tush, her face is unnaturally puffed up looking, something that hasn’t eluded Bethenny.

“Put bags of frozen veggies on my face & swelling reduced…Just had massage to try to de-swell face & feet….I look like a chipmunk,” she Twitted.

Bethenny, the author of the diet book “Naturally Skinny,” and a self-described natural foods chef, admitted she’s growing concerned over her swelling face.

But she says her husband, Manhattan real estate agent Jason Hoppy, whom she wed in March after she became pregnant, is fine with her expanding waistline.

“Jason loves it, ‘He says you’re thick and I love it,” says Bethenny. “I think he is having some sort of sick pregnancy fantasy. He is having a pregnant porno fantasy, so everyone is happy!”

The 5′5″ Bethenny has revealed that she had suffered from eating disorders for years and was heavier than she is now.

“I used to be 20 pounds heavier,” she said. “I would have been 50 pounds heavier, but I was white-knuckling it my whole life. I was completely obsessed with food.”

Frankel is now filming her own reality show called “Bethenny’s Getting Married” (a spinoff of the Bravo hit the “Real Housewives of New York City.”

With her baby is due in June, she has already launched her own fitness DVD line and written a second diet book called “The Skinnygirl Dish.”

The Real Housewives of New York City airs Thursdays on Bravo.

Can the so-bad-it's-awesome cult movie 'The Room' sell out New York's Ziegfeld Theatre?

The modern day brat pack Holy shit, are his eyes actually open?

by Clark Collis

In 2008, when I first wrote about the entertainingly terrible cult film The Room, the movie’s actor-director-writer-producer Tommy Wiseau told me he dreamed of one day screening his demented drama at the 20,000 capacity Staples Center. Despite the film’s still growing cult — whose members include such famous fans as Paul Rudd, Kristen Bell, and Tim and Eric — that prospect remains an unlikely one. On April 30, however, The Room will be viewed by its biggest audience to date when the movie is shown at New York’s famous Ziegfeld Theatre, a venue that is capable of housing 1,200 souls.
The event is being staged by the company Saturation Films which has been hosting monthly showings of Wiseau’s movie at Manhattan’s Village East cinema. “We’ve been screening it for a year, and it’s been generally sold out,” says Saturation’s George Gross. “About two or three months ago, Tommy contacted me about doing something big. He actually wanted to rent out Yankee Stadium. We thought about the Ziegfeld as a more… possible thing to do.”

Nicki Minaj settles for Diddy after being Rejected by Lady Gaga's manager

A source close to the entrepreneur/rapper has confirmed to Billboard.com that Diddy is co-managing Lil Wayne protégé Nicki Minaj.

According to our source, Minaj subsequently went on to seek management from Troy Carter, Lady Gaga's manager. Although some websites claim to have confirmed that Carter is co-managing Minaj with Diddy, our source says it isn't the case and that Gaga pumped the breaks on the deal, threatening to find another manager if Carter took on Minaj as well. When that happened, Carter stepped back and Diddy stepped in, asking one of his own managers, James Cruz, to co-manage Minaj with him instead.

Girlicious' Natalie Mejia Pleads not Guilty to Cocaine Charges

A 21-year-old pop singer pleaded not guilty this morning to a drugs-sales charge stemming from a March 9 arrest when Glendale police reportedly found more than a dozen small packages of cocaine in her purse.



Natalie Mejia, a member of the group Girlicious, appeared before Judge Lesley Green in Glendale Superior Court for her arraignment on one felony count of possession of a controlled substance for sale.

Mejia and Burbank resident Peter Asencio, 28, were arrested March 9 after a Glendale police officer stopped Asencio’s Ford Mustang for speeding at Victory Boulevard and Winchester Avenue.

The pair, who had been having dinner at the California Pizza Kitchen in Burbank, were rushing to get to Los Angeles International Airport, police said. Mejia, who was running late for her flight, was scheduled to perform with her group that week in Toronto.

During the traffic stop, police discovered that Asencio’s driver’s license was suspended, so they searched the car, police said.

The officer found the baggies of cocaine in Mejia’s purse during the search, police said. Asencio claimed the drugs were his, and that he was just trying to hide the drugs in her purse, police said.

Her next court date is April 28 in Burbank Superior Court.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor Interview



Following last year's summer smash with the Freemasons, 'Heartbreak (Make Me A Dancer)', Sophie Ellis-Bextor has proved that lightning can indeed strike twice by teaming up with the dance duo again from her cracking newbie 'Bittersweet'. In the middle of a promo tour for the single - and mere minutes before she was due on live telly - we managed to grab a quick chat with Mademoiselle E-B herself.

What's the response to the new single been like?
"Good, it all seems positive so far. I probably shouldn't say this but I think it sounds really good on the radio! I'm happy with how it's all shaping up."

What sort of chart position are you hoping for?
"God, I honestly haven't given it that much thought. I think whatever position means that the next single gets support and the album does OK. I think the more important thing is that it hangs around - a bit of longevity would be good, please!"

Have you decided what the next single's going to be?
"It's going to be 'Off And On', the track penned by Calvin Harris and Cathy Dennis."

You posted 'Off And On' on your MySpace page a while ago - are you worried that will affect sales?
"Nah, I don't think that's how things work anyway. I put 'Heartbreak' up a while before I released that too. Lily Allen put 'The Fear' up on her MySpace about a year before it came out and it still did really well. It's a new mix of the song too."

Any ideas on what the video will be like?
"Well, ages ago there was talk about 'Off And On' being the first single and I was approached by [director] Sophie Muller and she had some really good ideas for the video. I think it was something to do with having a fairground on my face! Hopefully we can revisit that idea because it sounds intriguing! I'd be foolish not to see what that's all about, wouldn't I?"

Is the album ready to go now?
"Yes, there's one song that needs a final tweek, and then we'll master it and sort out a running order, and then we're done. I think the next single will be out the last week of July and the album will be out the following week. Knowing me, that could all change, but that's what I've been told!"

Dr. Drew - You're A Fucking Quack!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Celebrity addiction specialist Drew Pinsky -- who goes by Dr. Drew -- is taking an online beating for suggesting that the best way to deal with Lindsay Lohan's drug problem is to "pack her car full with illegal substances" and then call the police.

Dr. Drew's Facebook page was quickly lit up with criticism following the publication by Radar of his comments. Framing Lohan would itself be a crime and, critics of Dr. Drew are pointing out, would put her at risk of being beaten or shot by the cops.

"If she were my daughter, I would pack her car full with illegal substances, send her on her way, call the police, and make sure she was arrested," prescribed Dr. Drew. "I would make sure she was not allowed to get out of jail. I would then go to the judge and make sure she was ordered to a minimum of a three year sobriety program."

Dr. Drew, who hosts a celebrity recovery show and gives professional advice, apparently lives in a world where people found with a "car full with illegal substances" are able to ask the judge to be sent to rehab for three years, instead of prison, and not have their request laughed out of court.

Ugly Betty: The Movie? It just might happen, according to actress Ana Ortiz.

The ABC show’s finale aired Wednesday night, but that doesn’t mean it’s over for good. Ortiz, who played Betty’s sister Hilda Suarez, said the series may have the big screen in its future.

“There may be a movie,” Ortiz tells Latina.com. “It’s something that we’ve been talking about and it’s something that [Ugly Betty star] America Ferrera would really love to do. That woman has so much determination that I can’t imagine anything she puts her mind to not getting done.”

And Ortiz, 39, is totally up for playing Hilda again.

“Ugly Betty has been the most important thing I’ve ever done, easily,” she says. “I was able to do more with one character than I can ever imagine doing again — Hilda was hilariously funny and emotionally deep.” –Catherine Donaldson-Evans
