The First Couple of WTFFFF set to star in a movie together



Veteran producer Edward R. Pressman and filmmaker David Gordon Green are teaming to produce Adam Bhala Lough's retro slasher film "Splatter Sisters," with Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood attached to star.

Film, penned by Lough, is the first in a planned franchise and is a sexploitation-serial-killer-slasher-road-movie circa 1989.

Lough ("Bomb the System") reckons "Splatter Sisters" could create a subgenre, which he calls "Skinemax Cinema," based on the direct-to-cable movies of his childhood.

Green ("Pineapple Express," "Your Highness") said while Lough's film is inspired by the horror classics of the 1980s, it has a fresh spin that raises the bar.

"This is a role Marilyn Manson was born to play, and with Evan Rachel Wood bringing dramatic gravity to the ensemble, I have no doubt this will take the horror genre to a new level," Green said.

"Splatter Sisters" was announced in Cannes. Pressman is at the fest for the world preem of 20th Century Fox's "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps." He is one of the producers of helmer Oliver Stone's sequel.

"Lough's unique talent and energy will make 'Splatter Sisters' a very special and markedly commercial film," Pressman said. "I've always been attracted to smart movies about killers made by directors with a real vision,"

Wood last starred on the bigscreen in Woody Allen's "Whatever Works," which was released in 2009.

Pratt DIS(S)owned?

Spencer Pratt's parents disowned him
 



Spencer Pratt has reportedly been disowned by his own parents, according to Us Weekly:

"They noticed him changing two years ago and stayed by his side. But now it's too much," a source tells Us Weekly. "They even took the pictures of him out of their home."
Us Weekly reports Spencer, 26, and Heidi, 23, have become virtual shut-ins at their $7,000-a-month rented L.A house, which is filled with framed covers of magazines on which they've appeared.
"No one ever visits," a local tells Us, and the couple rarely leave. "Heidi sits and stares in the mirror, while Spencer plots and schemes on his projects all day," adds a Pratt source. "He sits on the Internet, watches TV and tries to get press. That is all he does. It's totally sick."

Today We Honour Living Legend, Mariah Carey's 20th Year in Music

On this very day 2 decades back, a Vision debuted in music. Two decades later, she is the highest selling female artist of all time, singer, actor, songwriter, producer, Artist of the Decade and Millenium, the record holder of the only artist in this planet to hold 18 #1 hits.

In the 1990s, a then unknown singer named Mariah Carey released her first single, "Vision Of Love." Like all new artists, things didn't happen overnight. After much preparation, promotion and as Mariah put it herself to Billboard, "a culmination of a lot of hard work and a lot of dreams," "Vision Of Love" started to make some ground at radio and retail, debuting at #73 on the Billboard Hot 100 on the June 2, 1990 chart.


Today, May 15th, marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Mariah's very first single, "Vision of Love."

Lindsay Lohan's latest club tantrum




Lindsay Lohan started another fight in a club -- this time with New York Ranger skaters Aaron Voros and Sean Avery at 1Oak.
The troubled starlet threw a drink over Voros' model girlfriend, Jessica Stam, and then tried to get all three thrown out of the Wildfox fall-collection party the other night.
A spy relates, "Lindsay threw a fit because she wanted to be at their table near the DJ. But she claimed she didn't want to sit with Aaron and said, 'He's my ex-boyfriend. I don't want him anywhere near me.'
Voros denied knowing her. A drink then flew in Jessica's face, and Lindsay demanded their table be moved out. Club bosses refused and tried to calm her down. Stam, Voros and Avery were shocked but didn't retaliate, and Lindsay left shortly afterward." We await Lohan's inevitable denial, but we have multiple witnesses. A different source said "Lindsay threw a fit. There was total drama for absolutely no reason."

Tom Cruise: Suri "tells me what to wear"





Tom Cruise explained the secrets of daughter Suri's style to Oprah Winfrey today on her show.

"She likes to dress herself," said the proud papa. "If she wants to wear it, she wears it. I'm not going to tell her different. She's got great taste. She tells me what to wear!" He also said, she "loves pink."

When Oprah asked Tom - who was there to promote his upcoming movie Knight and Day - how Suri, 4, feels about the ever-present paparazzi, he said, "It's been there her whole life - same with Bella and Connor (his older children). She's such a happy, easy fun girl. She just deals with it." He added, "We don't make it a problem. We don't get nervous about it."

Does Suri realize her dad's a movie star? Yes, said Cruise. After all, she is growing up on movie sets. "She's excellent on the set. She'll tell people to be quiet on the set. She has headphones and watches the scenes and gives me notes afterward - the thumbs up."

Oprah asked about Cruise's older kids and dating. Of Isabella, 17, Cruise said, "She's a good girl. So whoever she likes is cool. Bella has very strong sense of herself."

And of Connor, 15, he said, "He's pretty smart, so I just listen and I'm, like, he's got plenty fo time for that. I'm just there to talk."

“Save ‘Law & Order’” Campaign Hits Facebook

Save Law & Order





The Major Case Squad has tried its last homicide: In case you haven’t heard, on Thursday, Law & Order
was ROBBED of the chance to make history as the long-running drama in television history.

After 20 years on the air and some of the most envelope-pushing plotlines the small screen has ever seen, L&O was given the axe by NBC this week. A 21st season renewal would have shattered Gunsmoke’s record and etched a new place in history for Dick Wolf’s original crime procedural.

“The full measure of the collective contributions made by Dick Wolf and his ‘Law & Order’ franchise over the last two decades to the success of NBC and Universal Media Studios cannot be overstated,” Jeff Gaspin, Chairman, NBC Universal Television Entertainment, said in a statement. “The legacy of his original ‘Law & Order’ series will continue to make an impact like no other series before.”

But Law fans aren’t letting their favorite show go to the television graveyard without a fight. Someone has launched a Facebook campaign to save Law & Order. Hey, it worked for Betty White!

“We need to band together to help save this classic show! Where would we be with out Sam Waterston and S. Epatha Merkerson!” the group’s description reads.

L&O will conclude with a one-hour series finale on Monday, May 24.

WARNING: THIS IS A ROMAN POLANSKI POST

Polanski controversy casts shadow at Cannes


Roman Polanski and Charlotte Lewis in 1986 prior to the presentation of the film 'Pirates'.


CANNES, France — The controversy surrounding fugitive filmmaker Roman Polanski has drawn strong words in his defence from fellow director Woody Allen after fresh allegations that he abused a minor.

Another of Polanski's prominent defenders, French philosopher Bernard-Henri Levy, rejected the new allegations by British actress Charlotte Lewis, and even France's culture minister waded in, dismissing them as "pseudo accusations."

Allen, 74, said Polanski, who is fighting extradition from Switzerland to the United States to face sentencing in a 1977 child sex case, had paid a high price for his actions and that it was time to draw a line under the case.

"It's something that happened many years ago... he has suffered.... He has paid his due," Allen told French radio station RTL.

"He's an artist, he's a nice person, he did something wrong and he paid for it. They (his critics) are not happy unless he pays the rest of his life. They would be happy if they could execute him in a firing squad," he said.

"Enough is enough," he added.

The masterminds behind NBC's bullshit fall schedule try to explain themselves, fail at it


As they prepare for tomorrow's morning NBC upfront presentation, NBC Universal TV Entertainment chairman Jeff Gaspin, NBC/Universal Media Studios primetime entertainment prexy Angela Bromstad, NBC Entertainment chairman Marc Graboff and others took time out to discuss their new fall schedule. 

Among the tidbits: Bromstad is still talking to Tim Kring about a two-hour "Heroes" movie, while "Law and Order" may still get a proper send-off via spinoff "Law and Order: Los Angeles."

Also, the execs say they plan to put much of their marketing push behind Monday night -- particularly new drama "The Event." And rather than open up a new night of comedy, they plan to rotate their stable of shows on Thursday instead.

Glee: Interview with Matthew Morrison



Prior to Glee, Matthew Morrison was well-known in Broadway circles, but it wasn’t until his breakout role as the glee club’s lovable leader Will Schuester on the hit series that he’s had to deal with the downside of fame.

The 31-year-old admits that he’s adapting to becoming a Hollywood star, complete with dating rumors and a bogus cheating scandal.

Transitioning from Broadway fame to TV stardom.
"It's cool. I enjoy talking to people who are just really into the show. I get a lot of families who come up to me, actually Katie Couric came up to me at the White House Correspondents' dinner a couple weeks ago and she said 'Tuesday nights are the only  night that my daughter and I get to spend together, and we watch Glee. And it's such a great moment that we have together.' Families are getting together and talking about the show because sometimes it brings up some interesting, racy issues and parents have to answer some questions. But I love it. I'm so happy and proud of what we're doing, so it's been a great ride."

Connecting to Will's newfound faults.
"I love where he's going now. He was kind of like the perfect guy before. I like being a real human being now and having faults, making choices and them not always being the right choices. He gets himself in a little bit of trouble sometimes now, and it's fun to play flaws. You don't want to play a perfect person; no one cares about that."

His wishes for Will.
"I'd like him to stay single for a while. I definitely don't want to get into the Emma thing too quickly. I like the tension between us. I'd like him just to get into the kids a little bit more, just really work on his teaching and inspiring them and having them inspire him. I love the relationship between myself and the kids."

Malawi Gay Couple To Be Imprisoned: I Will No Longer Keep Quiet



My name is Mia Kirshner and I am the director of I Live Here Projects. The aim of our organization is to provide urgent care to communities that have slipped through the cracks. Our first project is in Kachere Juvenile Prison in Malawi, where we are forming a full-time school, permaculture garden project and legal rights. These children had slipped through the cracks when we first arrived in Kachere.

That is not what this piece is about.

I am writing about an issue that I can no longer keep quiet about.

While I was in Malawi in December, Malawi's first gay couple got married in a public commitment ceremony. Their names are Tiwonge Chimbalanga and Steven Monjeza. I read the headlines detailing their wedding and sardonic commentary of the journalists writing the pieces. Two days after they married, they were met with both public cheers and humiliation. They now face over a decade of hard labor in a Malawian prison for their actions.

Serena Van der Woodsen is not going to break this marriage just yet



The splitting rumors of Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson and actor Ryan Reynolds are not true. Johansson’s representative said it was a rumor and there is “absolutely no truth to this.”

Rumors about their split arose when Johansson attended Obama’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington D.C. May 1 alone without Ryan. But after four days she and Reynolds were seen walking out together from a gym.

It was also reported that an insider told In Touch magazine that Reynolds’ close relationship with his Green Lantern costar Blake Lively is a source of tension between him and Johansson. Johansson was allegedly furious when Reynolds called Lively “flawless” and “perfect.”

However, the 'Iron Man 2' star's rep has brushed off the report, telling there is "absolutely no truth to this."

"This right here is the first song that you will here when you put that disk in," Drake said of Thank Me Later, due June 15. "It's a song with myself and Miss Alicia Keys, it's called "Fireworks."

"Money just changed everything, I wonder how life without it would go," he rapped. "From the concrete, who knew that a flower would grow/ Looking down from the top and it's crowded below/ My 15 minutes started an hour ago."

Drake premiered the track during the first stop of his tour and has been revealing more of the number with subsequent performances.

In Rolling Stone magazine's Spring Music Preview, the So Far Gone superstar revealed the track would address his relationships with Lil Wayne, his own family, and a rumored romance with Rihanna.

Last month, Drake told MTV News the song represents what his life is like at the moment.

"The song itself is the first song on the album; I think it's the biggest indicator of what the album is gonna be like," he said. "That's why I picked that song to go first, and that's why I wrote the first verse like that. It's really where I am in my life right now. I know they're looking forward to the album, so I want them to get a feel of how the story starts off."

Is FOX about to pull an O.C. on Glee?


"Glee" fans, get ready to set your DVRs an hour earlier.

That's the early word from the Fox schedule, which the net is prepping to announce tomorrow morning.

According to various drips and drabs of intel, it looks like Fox will schedule established hits in the 8 p.m. hour in order to launch new series at 9 p.m.

That includes bringing a comedy hour to Tuesdays -- but at 9 p.m., instead of the 8 p.m. hour that everyone had been predicting.

"Glee" at 8 p.m. makes a lot of sense when you think about the symmetry between it and "American Idol," which airs on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. in midseason. (Yes, folks, "Idol" will stick with its normal Tuesday-Wednesday game plan in the winter. Given the upheaval the show is about to face without Simon Cowell, the network isn't about to add to that stress by moving its long-established air pattern.)

Fox wouldn't confirm the news, and considering that the show's Ryan Murphy had been campaigning against such a time slot shift, it may not come to fruition. But it was looking likely as of Sunday.

Meanwhile, like NBC, Fox plans to hold several new heavy hitters back for midseason (or, as the network now likes to call it, "Second Season"). That includes Shawn Ryan's highly anticipated new Chicago-set cop drama "Ridealong."

Cannes 2010: Shia LaBeouf: We botched the last Indiana Jones




The last time Shia LaBeouf came to Cannes, in 2008, it was to promote "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," the revival of the swashbuckling adventure franchise that went on to earn a whopping $787 million around the world. LaBeouf is back on the Croisette this weekend to flog "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," another revival of a classic from several decades ago. But he's not willing to forget about what he says were rampant problems with Indy 4 -- and he doesn't expect fans to, either.
"I feel like I dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished," LaBeouf said, explaining that this upped the ante for him before he began shooting the "Wall Street" sequel. "If I was going to do it twice, my career was over. So this was fight-or-flight for me."

Meeting with reporters Saturday on a terrace at the Hotel du Cap, he had some strong, confessional words about his acting in the film, which he said he felt didn't convince anyone that he was the action hero the movie claimed him to be. "You get to monkey-swinging and things like that and you can blame it on the writer and you can blame it on Steven [Spielberg, who directed]. But the actor's job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn't do it. So that's my fault. Simple.

Michigan crowned Miss USA



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

A 24-year-old woman from Michigan recovered after nearly stumbling in her evening gown and beat out 50 other women to take the 2010 Miss USA title on Sunday.

Rima Fakih of Dearborn, Mich., won the pageant at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip after swimsuit, evening gown and interview competitions.

When asked how she felt about winning the crown, she said, "Ask me after I've had a pizza."

Fakih nearly fell while finishing her walk in a long, strapless gown because of the length of its train, but she made it without a spill and went on to win.

During the interview portion, Fakih was asked whether she thought birth control should be paid for by health insurance, and she said she believed it should because it's costly.

"I believe that birth control is just like every other medication even though it's a controlled substance," Fakih said.


Fakih replaces Miss USA 2009 Kristen Dalton and won a spot representing the United States in the 2010 Miss Universe pageant. She also gets a one-year lease in a New York apartment with living expenses, an undisclosed salary, and various health, professional and beauty services.

Miss Oklahoma USA Morgan Elizabeth Woolard was named first runner-up after handling a question about Arizona's new immigration law. Woolard said she supports the law, which requires police enforcing another law to verify a person's immigration status if there's "reasonable suspicion" that the person is in the country illegally.

She said she's against illegal immigration but is also against racial profiling.

"I'm a huge believer in states' rights. I think that's what's so wonderful about America. So I think it's perfectly fine for Arizona to create that law."

"The Office" actor Oscar Nunez was booed as he asked the question and asked the audience to wait until he finished the question before they reacted.


Miss Virginia USA Samantha Evelyn Casey was the second runner-up, Miss Colorado USA Jessica Hartman was third runner-up, and Miss Maine USA Katherine Ashley Whittier was the fourth runner-up.

Most of the field of contestants from all 50 states and the District of Columbia were eliminated just after the pageant began and the entire group danced onstage to "TiK ToK" by Ke$ha.

A panel of eight judges, including NBA star Carmelo Anthony and Treasure Island casino-hotel owner Phil Ruffin, were judging the women throughout the night.

After 15 contestants strutted in swimsuits, five were eliminated. Another five were eliminated after the evening gown competition.

Miss Nebraska USA Belinda Renee Wright won the Miss Congeniality award, roughly one week after her father was killed in a farm accident. Miss Alabama USA Audrey Moore won Miss Photogenic after an online fan vote.

The pageant aired live to East Coast viewers on NBC. The network owns the pageant in a joint venture with Donald Trump.

The competition, which is not affiliated with the Miss America pageant, was hosted by celebrity chef Curtis Stone and NBC correspondent Natalie Morales.

Bobby betterthanbeiber Andonov not such an amateur



The hot favourite to take out Australia's Got Talent, Bobby Andonov, isn't quite the amateur we've been led to believe by the Channel 7 show's judges.

The guy they're touting as Australia's answer to Justin Bieber is another example of all not being how it seems in the reality television world.
