Ready for the next superhero movie to begin casting? You know it's going to be another obnoxious process of rumors and shortlists, but isn't it fun being able to chime in on possible players? It may indeed allow us all to influence decisions and be a part of the development, or at least seem so. Now it's the Fantastic Four reboot, which Screen Rant assures us will not be titled Fantastic Four Reborn, as we've been hearing.

Mods: This is my first post so if anything is wrong please let me know!
Kourtney and Khloe take Miami didn’t disappoint this season and judging from the premier episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s we're going to be more addicted to this continuing saga than ever before.
This season started off with Kourtney and Khloe take Miami’s aftermath. As usual Kourtney was busy trying to juggle her never-been-stable relationship with Scott, and Khloe’s unmitigated disgust for said baby daddy. It seems that this back and forth act with Kourtney and Scott is far too old for the family but Kourtney is determined to make it work. They even went to visit the psychologist and Scott, as per usual, acted like he just couldn’t understand why Kourtney’s family did anything but welcome him with open arms. Still a douche bag.
Meanwhile on the other end of the Kardashian radar Kim has finally moved into her new home and decided to… no wait, Kris decided to have a housewarming party. Although Kim allowed it, she was not at all happy. Drinks got spilled and poor Kimberly had a crazy OCD attack as she frantically scrubbed red wine from her sofa pillows. Right on cue-- and as Kris played beer pong-- Bruce came to save the day! With his sentimental speech about making memories, Bruce had us all saying, "aww" and then wondering how the hell such a loving normal guy; (emphasis on normal) got caught up with such a demented crew.
Still, who would the Kardashian family be if they weren’t so unhinged? With the youngest girls all grown up, Kourtney homeless, Rob still impeding on Khloe and hubby's personal space, Kim discovering Clorox, Kris meddling in everyone’s business, and Bruce trying to hold it all together (gasp for air!) this season will have our eyes glued to the screen.
And if you so happen to miss an episode --no worries! Today’s Teen continues to keep you updated on all matters of important things. Remember-- first comes Reality Shows on E!, then reports on global warming.

Davis, as we already know, will play the lead, Aibileen, in the film adaptation of the book, which explores the complicated relationships between the white women of the South in the 1960s, and the black maids and housekeepers who took care of their children and homes.
According to IMDBPro, joining Viola Davis & Octavia Spencer will be Oscar nominee Cicely Tyson as Constantine, Aunjanue Ellis as Yule May, stage star La Chanze (Tony winner for The Color Purple) as Rachel, and Tarra Riggs (Treme, Ballast) as Gretchen.
These character names won’t mean anything to you if you haven’t read the novel. Here’s a hint – they’re all maids and housekeepers. I’ve read the book, and it’s a good read; a very well-written, well-researched, engaging book. You may take issue with its content, character depictions, and relationships, given the era in which the story is set; but, I haven’t met anyone who’s read it, who wasn’t moved by it in some way. So, give it a look, if you haven’t already, in order to reach your own conclusions – at least before the film is released next year.
In the “white women’s” casting column, Emma Stone, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sissy Spacek, and Allison Janey, round out the topline cast.
I’m glad that they at least, put together a stellar cast of actresses, so the realization of it, from book to screen, may be one of 2011’s Oscar-contending pictures – especially in the acting category. Although, the director, Tate Taylor, has more acting credits than directing, with just 1 feature-film on his resume. So, he’s still an unproven talent.
It’s worth noting that Nate Berkus, the interior designer, who most will be familiar with as a once-regular on The Oprah Winfrey Show, is listed as a producer, along with Chris Columbus and others.
Filming began last week in Greenwood, Mississippi.

i loved the book so of course hollywood will screw this up. i think viola davis is excellent casting even though aibileen is much older in the book. as for emma stone ... it'll be hard to believe that she's friends with bryce dallas howard as there's an obvious age difference. opinions?

Enrique Iglesias says bilingual album 'more fun'
Enrique Iglesias says he's waited a long time to release an album like his latest, Euphoria, which has tracks in both English and Spanish.
The Spanish-born, Miami-raised pop singer said even five years ago his record label was reluctant to release a bilingual album, despite the singer's international following.
But the change in the market brought about by online sales has meant a change in attitude, he told CBC's cultural affairs show Q on Monday.

Action star Jackie Chan is campaigning to bring more martial arts to the Olympics - he wants kung fu to be recognized as an official sport at the Games.
The Karate Kid star began learning kung fu as a young boy and still practices his moves on a daily basis.
The international sports competition currently features Asian combat disciplines such as taekwondo
and judo but Chan is hoping to convince Olympics committee bosses to include kung fu, also known as wushu.
"I love wushu a lot and I would love to see it included in future Olympic Games."
But the Hong Kong actor admits that the many different styles of kung fu fighting will make it difficult for him to realize his Olympic dream for the sport.
"This makes it difficult for wushu to make a unified impressio n to international audiences."
Lindsay Lohan has been released from her court-ordered rehabilitation at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, the facility the troubled starlet has called home since beginning her treatment there August 2, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Lohan, 24, was sentenced by Judge Marsha Revel to serve 90 days in jail, followed by 90 days of rehab for probation violations stemming from her 2007 DUI conviction.
But on day 22 of the treatment program, Lohan signed her discharge papers as RadarOnline.com exclusively revealed.
The move paved the way for her sudden and shock exit from the center.
The Mean Girls actress was spirited out a back door in to a waiting, chauffeur driven car.
UPDATE: We're told Lindsay's first moments of freedom were a telephone call made to her mother Dina.

Lindsay Lohan's UCLA medical bill was a whopping $40,000 a week ... sources familiar with her treatment tell TMZ.
Before continuing ... we'll answer what we know you're asking. We're told Lindsay's insurance (SAG) does not cover treatment at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital.
Sources at UCLA tell us the base rate for treatment at the Hospital is $17,850 a week, which does not include the cost of doctors, testing, medication, or therapists. All tolled, Lindsay's bill came to $40,000 a week.
Here's what's crazy ... Judge Marsha Revel ordered 13 weeks of treatment, which would have brought the bill to $520,000. According to the docs, Judge Revel overreacted and Lindsay was released after only 23 days -- almost 3 1/2 weeks. That reduces the cost to a very reasonable $130,400.
"Jon is still deciding what exactly the book will be about, but knows he wants to focus on his parenting skills," a friend of the father of eight tells me. "There is no deal yet or timeline, but the [interest] in Jon from publishers is huge right now, so he's going to strike while the iron is hot."
The former TLC reality star thinks this is his chance to show the world what a stand-up father he is and how other moms and dads in similar situations (because having 8 kids is so common!) can learn parenting tips from him.
This would also be Jon's answer to Kate's successful turn as an author of parenting-ish books like 'Eight Little Faces' and 'I Just Want You to Know.'
Jon met Dr. Lafair 12 months ago when he sought help dealing with the changes going on in his life (you know, his high-profile divorce from Kate and all those prickly dating troubles). Now, the two have become friends and are determined to work together on this parenting book.
Lafair's no novice in the publishing game -- she's the author of the award-winning 2010 business book 'Don't Bring It to Work' -- and has said Jon is motivated by his desire to be a good father to his kids.
"Expect the book to include Jon's journey from high school to father of sextuplets by age 27," an insider tells me. "What the book won't be focusing on is how quickly he moved on, after Kate, with two much younger girlfriends, his partying nights in Las Vegas or his new huge tattoo that covers his entire back."
In other words, don't expect too much of that little thing called reality!
Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren said she has "been through hell" since her husband's infidelity surfaced but she never hit him, according to an interview released Wednesday.
Nordegren told People magazine she and Woods tried for months to reconcile the relationship. In the end, a marriage "without trust and love" wasn't good for anyone, she said.
On Thanksgiving night outside their Florida home, Woods drove his SUV over a fire hydrant and into a tree, setting off shocking revelations that sports' biggest star had been cheating on his wife through multiple affairs. The couple officially divorced Monday.
Nordegren told People that she never hit Woods on the night of the car crash.
"There was never any violence inside or outside our home," she said. "The speculation that I would have used a golf club to hit him is just truly ridiculous."
Nordegren said Woods left the house that night and when he didn't return after a while, she got worried and went to look for him. She said that's when she found him in the car.
"I did everything I could to get him out of the locked car," she said. "To think anything else is absolutely wrong."

Just one week after the untimely death of her plastic surgeon, Dr. Frank Ryan, Heidi Montag sat down exclusively with Life & Style to tell-all about her plastic surgery regrets, revealing that she wants her outrageous G implants removed.
"I'm desperate to go back to normal," she confides to Life & Style. "I'm downgrading and going a little smaller, to a D or a double D."
More than nine months after she went under the knife on Nov. 20, Heidi says she is still in severe pain and her body has not gotten used to the over the top boob job. "I have major anxiety about it. I was taking painkillers but they weren't working so I stopped. It hurt either way,"
Besides being unable to hug her four dogs or wear anything but custom-made clothing, "I'm obsessed with fitness but it's impossible to work out with these boobs," she says. "It's heartbreaking. I can't live an everyday life."
And while Heidi tells Life & Style she is currently shopping for a surgeon in South America, she worries that she'll be trapped in this cartoonish body forever after the untimely passing of her confidant Dr. Ryan. "I feel trapped in my own body," Heidi tells Life & Style.
"There's just no fixing it," she says. "Dr. Ryan knows the work he did, he knows everything."

On this day in 2001, the music world lost one of its true visionaries when Aaliyah, who was only 22 years old at the time, died in a plane crash along with eight other passengers after filming a music video in the Bahamas. Her tragic passing came just as she was releasing her finest album Aaliyah, which had come out only a month prior to hear death. Though she was only 22, she had still managed to become an industry veteran, as she appeared on "Star Search" at the age of nine and signed her first record deal at 12. She recorded her first album Age Ain't Nothing But a Number when she was only 14, and she had two Gold singles and a platinum album before her 16th birthday.
Because she was so young, the early part of Aaliyah's career was devoted to being something of a cipher, first for R. Kelly (who produced her debut album and also married her well before she was of age) and then for Timbaland (who, along with Missy Elliott, produced much of Aaliyah's second album One in a Million). But it's hard to argue with the results, as Aaliyah's extensive list of hits — including "Back & Forth," "We Need a Resolution," "Are You That Somebody?" and "Try Again" — reflects an incredible ear for envelope-pushing sounds and funky, radio-friendly grooves.
Though Timbaland's presence still loomed large (he co-wrote a handful of tracks and informs much of the album's sound), Aaliyah was the album that appeared to represent the singer truly coming into her own. She was exploring new directions in the form of rhythmic tricks like "Loose Rap" and punchy anthems like "More Than a Woman." Ironically, she passed away after making a video for "Rock the Boat," one of the better and stranger tracks on the album and a possible indication of things to come.
Aaliyah's passing was tragic, and her absence still stings in the modern hip-hop and R&B community.

On the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina (August 29), Easton angel Sandra Bullock and New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu will preside over a ribbon cutting of our new Warren Easton Charter High School-based (on campus) health clinic, a full-service medical and dental facility. The event will start at 11 A.M. with a press conference in the auditorium.
The clinic is the product of a partnership between Tulane Medical Center, Louisiana School Health Connection and the Warren Easton Charter High School Foundation. Major funding for the $700,000 facility comes from the Kellogg Foundation, Sandra Bullock and The San Francisco 49ers Foundation.
Based upon the increase in our School Performance Score (SPS), Warren Easton Charter High School in 2010 was designated as a school of EXEMPLARY ACADEMIC GROWTH by the State of Louisiana Department of Education.
On July 23, 2010, the Sugar Bowl Committee honored Sandra Bullock for her contributions to Warren Easton. Board members Ronald McDonald and Billy Hatchet attended the ceremonies and Arthur Hardy accepted the award for Ms. Bullock.
FYI, Since Hurricane Katrina, Bullock has become a major patron of Warren Easton, the first public high school for boys in Louisiana. The school, which dates to 1845 and survived going co-ed and desegregating, was having trouble opening after Hurricane Katrina because the storm caused $4 million in damages at the brick Canal Street building where it has operated since 1913.

• Eminem will likely relinquish the No. 1 position next week to Katy Perry's new "Teenage Dream." Released yesterday (Aug. 24), industry prognosticators suggest that the set will likely sell in the range of 170,000 to 200,000 by week's end on Aug. 29. Beleaguered former "American Idol" champ Fantasia is seeking a big week too. Her third set, "Back to Me," is on track for a sturdy No. 2 debut with a number in the range of 150,000 to 175,000.
Fantasia's last album debuted with 133,000 copies sold. Yes, she is actually quite popular in the R&B music realm.
Fantasia belts out “Bittersweet,” the new single off her third album Back to Me, on Tuesday (August 24) inside the Good Morning America studio in NYC.
The 26-year-old singer returned to the stage for the first time since her hospitalization and overdose earlier this month.
“I think I was just overloaded with everything, with carrying six years of so much,” the season 3 American Idol champ told GMA anchor Robin Roberts. “I always take a licking and keep on ticking…it just became heavy for me to the point that I just wanted to be away from the noise.”
“There’s so much that people don’t understand. They just see the glitz and the glamour, and they feel like life is so perfect, but we’re human and we go through things,” she said.

Three new character posters have been posted on the official homepage for Mark Romanek’s new feature, the adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro’s celebrated book, Never Let Me go.
Here’s the synopsis:
As children, Ruth, Kathy and Tommy, spend their childhood at a seemingly idyllic English boarding school. As they grow into young adults, they find that they have to come to terms with the strength of the love they feel for each other, while preparing themselves for the haunting reality that awaits them.
Judging by the trailer, these beautifully composed close-ups of the three lead (Andrew Garfield, Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan) perfectly reflect the style of the film. Romanek is a master visualist (the photos he frequently posts on Twitter are clearly the work of a hugely talented individual).
The film of opens this year’s London Film Festival and it’s released nationwide on 14 January 2011.

Toxic singer Britney Spears has voiced her desire to record a duet with the Poker Face singer Lady Gaga. Gaga, of course, is the current ruling diva in the Pop circuit and commands a plethora of colossal fan following.
In fact, Gaga had embarked on her career wagon wheel penning music tracks for established stars like Britney Spears and the Pussycat Dolls. However, the roll of dice by the crafty fate has ensured that now it’s Gaga who is the reigning queen and it’s Britney desiring a song record with her.
The superiority of Gaga can be vouched from the fact that she, a few days back, stole the Queen of Twitter crown from Britney Spears as her twitter followers went past Spears’ devotees.
However, Spears isn’t envious of Gaga and cites, “I am a big fan of hers. Anything is possible.”
Now, wonder if Gaga can repeat a Madonna act with Britney. Madonna, as you will recall, hit headlines with her younger counterpart as they scorched the stage and raised eyebrows with their lip lock daredevil act. Sure, Britney may want a recap of her searing stage exploits with the new pop princess….!
During this morning's court hearing ... Judge Fox imposed the following ground rules for Lindsay's probation:
-- Reside at home until further notice
-- Random drug and alcohol testing twice a week
-- Participate in psychotherapy a minimum of 4 days a week
-- Attend behavior therapy sessions 2 times a week
-- Attend a 12-step program
The judge said if Lindsay flunks her drug and alcohol tests, she'll go to jail for 30 days.
Outside of court Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, said that Lindsay is "looking forward to beginning anew, and having a productive life and schedule."
Now that we've all been entertained by the screenwriting talents of Charlie and Mac, witnessed Dennis and Dee explore the worst parts of dating with the D.E.N.N.I.S. System and seen Frank's naked body, what's next for the 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' gang?
Two words: Tom Sizemore.
I caught up with Glenn Howerton, Danny DeVito, Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney to find out about the new season (premieres Thurs., Sept. 16, 10PM ET on FX) and got an earful about Hollywood bad boy Sizemore and his awesomely twisted turn on the show.
We also talked babies (Olson and McElhenney are expecting their first child, a girl, any day now) and, of course, the best ways to get them tanned and camera-ready (see "The Gang Finds a Dumpster Baby" if you don't get the joke). Then we touched on what's got DeVito's balls on fire, how many more seasons the show will go and why we do or don't -- there are conflicting opinions on this -- want to see a 50-year-old Sweet Dee.
Pretty sure Kaitlin & Rob are having a boy, but whatever, article. There is also a serious lack of Charlie in this post. Comments should fix this.
Lindsay Lohan was ordered by her new judge to a strict regimen of drug treatment and psychotherapy following her release from inpatient rehab Tuesday.
Among Judge Elden Fox's orders for now: Lohan must submit to random drug and alcohol testing twice a week, as well as attend two behavioral therapy sessions weekly. She must also have seven contacts per week with a counselor for chemical dependency issues and attend 12-step chemical dependency sessions five times weekly. In addition, she must attend four psychotherapy sessions a week.
Judge Fox warned that any missed or dirty tests would result in a 30-day jail sentence. The new rules apply until a Nov. 1 progress review. Until then, Lohan was ordered to reside at her Los Angeles home.
"She is serious about her sobriety," the actress's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, told the judge. "She looks forward to proving to the court ... that she's moving forward in a positive manner." Outside the courthouse, Holley told reporters: "This is a new beginning for Lindsay Lohan," adding that she was released early from inpatient treatment because her doctors found it was "completely unnecessary and that it was in her own best interest to move her to outpatient treatment."
Holley added that she didn't know whether Lohan was initially misdiagnosed, and shot down rumors that Lohan would be attending the L.A. premiere of her new movie, Machete, Wednesday night. "She thought it was better for her to focus [on recovery] and not go to something splashy. She's healthy and clear-headed."
The judge also dropped two counts of being under the influence of drugs in Lohan's DUI case because she had satisfied her probation requirements for those charges.
Lohan, 24, who was not present at the hearing, was released Tuesday from UCLA's Neuropsychiatric Hospital after 23 days.
She was originally sentenced by a previous judge to serve three months at the facility.
Immediately prior, the actress served 13 full days of a 90-day sentence at a Lynwood, Calif., jail after violating her probation.
Bones fans expecting a knock-down, drag-out catfight this season between Booth’s new girlfriend (played by Canadian actress Katheryn Winnick) and soul mate Brennan (Emily Deschanel) are out of luck.
“We are not playing a jealous triangle,” insists executive producer Stephen Nathan. “I can tell you that categorically. This isn’t high school. It won’t be two women fighting over the same man. There’s no outward tension.”
Regardless, Winnick—whose war-correspondent character met Booth during his tour of duty in Afghanistan—was warned to brace for a backlash when she debuts in the Sept. 23 premiere. “We told her, ‘You’re going to be resoundingly hated [at first],’” says Nathan, “‘but then you’ll be loved.’”
Thoughts? Are you already hating on Winnick? Or are you taking a wait-and-see approach?
I don't know about you guys, but I hate her already.

You'll notice the feed is also clogged with interactions with Gaga's favorite arm barnacle, Perez Hilton.
Images from the shoot leaked on Knight's site over the summer, and Gaga's stylist, Nicola Formichetti, posted the two covers to his blog today, along with an excerpt from the interview Lady Jo Calderone Gaga gave the magazine. Not only is she (allegedly) playing a man, she's playing an Italian man.

Eminem's Recovery Continues To Make Chart History
In these rather dire times, when album sales continue to plummet and ringtones seem to be the driving force of the music industry, there are still, on occasion, old-school bright spots: artists and albums that seemingly defy the odds and continue to move units, week after week.
Eminem is officially one of those bright spots, because once again, his Recovery sits atop the Billboard albums chart, the seventh week it's held the #1 position in its nine weeks of release. (And if it weren't for those meddling kids in Avenged Sevenfold and the Arcade Fire, Em probably would have gone nine-for-nine.)

Also, dear ONTD, I love you very much but these ~Changes~ do not agree with me. Also, please add a Bowie tag.
(Sorry mods about the source. Added now. Am hungover like whoa. I DID add the tags though so not sure why that didn't show up.)

Has Lindsay Lohan finally learnt her lesson?
The troubled actress spent her first night of freedom—since jail and rehab—at home in her West Hollywood condo, where she received a visit from former girlfriend Sam Ronson.
And when Sam left to go deejay at a nearby club, L.L. actually opted not to attend...
Not that she couldn't have justified her presence. The fete at Trousdale was a fundraiser for her late friend DJ AM and proceeds went to The Phoenix House, an addiction and rehab center.
Maybe the nightclub's LiLo ban had something to do with her decision to skip the charity bash—she was blacklisted earlier this year for tossing a drink at Sam. (Celebs who did make the scene last night included Leonardo DiCaprio and Rashida Jones.)
Another event Lindsay is likely to miss is tonight's Machete screening. Technically, she could go, since it's right here in downtown L.A., but a studio rep says she's not expected to attend.
On Wedneday morning her lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley confirmed she'll sit this one out, saying "She's moving forward in a positive way and not necessarily going to something splashy. She has changed, she's healthy, she's clear-headed, she's positive and she's looking forward."

Production on “The Human Factor” is scheduled for sometime next year.
I couldn't be more excited tbh!!!
Marvel Studios is moving forward on a live action feature version of Iron Fist, hiring screenwriter Rich Wilkes to draft a movie based on a martial arts expert whose battle with a dragon--ended when he plunged his hands through the beast's molten heart--turned his fists into indestructible weapons.
Iron Fist was on the minds of many fanboys when Disney paid $4 billion for Marvel's 5000 superhero library and vowed to turn the less obvious comic book heroes into films and TV properties. Marvel tried to make an Iron Fist movie with Artisan nearly a decade ago, as a vehicle for X-Men villain and martial arts expert Ray Park. The Iron Fist comic book mythology was created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane in the 1970s, when the popularity of martial arts films was on the rise.
Iron Fist was among a bunch of Marvel superhero properties scattered around Hollywood. While tent poles like X-Men, Spider-Man, Ghost Rider, Fantastic Four and a handful of others remain at other studios, Marvel has recaptured rights to many wayward properties and Kevin Feige is hitting the reset button on a bunch of them. Marvel recently began work on Dr. Strange, hiring Conan scribes Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to generate a film from a superhero property that four studios tried to crack over the years. Both Iron Fist and Dr. Strange will be distributed by Disney. Marvel Studios has four more films under the preexisting distribution deal with Paramount, and those will include Thor, The First Avenger: Captain America, and the Robert Downey Jr.-starrer Iron Man 3. The final film will likely be the Joss Whedon-directed The Avengers, though Marvel is separately working on the youth-oriented Runaways and Ant-Man.
Wilkes is best known for writing the original XXX film that launched a franchise around Vin Diesel's extreme sports hero character. He also scripted the Motley Crue biopic The Dirt, which Paramount just put into turnaround, and he wrote Ballad of the Whiskey Robber for Johnny Depp and Graham King. Wilkes is repped by Verve.
The outrageous performer Prince Poppycock might have to change his name to Prince Gaga.
After storming through another out-there performance for the variety show America's Got Talent last night, the singer was granted a new name to sum up his bizarre stage act.

Taylor Momsen Interview interview. Are you only inspired by male musicians? Actually, one of my first favorite records was the debut Garbage album, which I heard when I was very young. Shirley Manson is a great female vocalist and performer and I admire her for that. But yeah, I do emulate men more, I grew up on Oasis, Soundgarden, AC/DC, The Beatles. I am trying to do my own thing, but there will always be comparisons, even if I don‘t agree with them.
Any makeup tricks? I have a bounty of products. Bedhead's black eyeliner is really good, it lasts a long time, but the only thing is you can't smear it, so I have smudge black eyeshadow around it. Also, lately I have been using red eye makeup! Where do you buy your outfits?
Stripper stores mainly. Especially for shoes. I bought them [The stripper heels with tip cup] because they were tall. [PAUSE] Seriously. I like to wear platform heels onstage and they're actually hard to find. But fans started putting money in them, so now they are filled with tons of bills. It's pretty amazing.
On her controversial song 'Goin' Down': It really is just a story and people have made a big deal of it. I grew up Catholic and there were elements in that which meant something to me, but when we wrote this song, it was during the time that all the molestation in the church was going on. The song is a direct reaction to that and I think it's fitting
Anything can become a reality show these days, particularly things revolving around interesting or bizarre jobs. From Deadliest Catch (crab fishermen) to Verminators (exterminators) we've seen it all -- or have we? G4 has announced their own new reality show, one inspired by this year's Best Picture Oscar winner The Hurt Locker.
Bomb Patrol: Afghanistan will follow a US Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit through basic training and tag along for a several month deployment to Afghanistan. For some reason I don't think there'll be any over-the-top Jeremy Renner types on this program.
G4 President Neal Tiles explained the rationale behind the decision: "There is simply no way to comprehend the incredible amount of pressure and split-second decision making these individuals must undertake in the worst possible physical conditions without riding along with them as our cameras will do. This is a rare opportunity to showcase the work of the courageous men and women on the front lines and share with our viewers all the real-life drama, teamwork, danger and triumph that goes along with this specialized job."
The show is a marked departure from the cable and satellite network's normal fare, which focuses on videogames and technology with a healthy dose of Cops and Cheaters re-runs tossed in for balance. However, if you look closely, it's not as much of a stretch as it first seems. G4's 18-24 male audience is interested in more than just videogames. "We've always said the young- male demo has extremely varied interests," Tiles said. "Both G4 and the Navy like this for the same reason: It appeals to the tech side of G4's demographic."
Tiles goes on to add that this isn't G4's attempt to get in on the "dangerous jobs" subgenre of reality television.
Bomb Patrol is set to debut this spring. I'm surprised the Navy would go along with this, considering it could interfere with the soldiers' ability to do their job and make this particular group a potential target for militants looking for television exposure.
Drew Barrymore won't meet my eye. She talks in a monotone, her hands plucking nervously at the micro plaits in her hair. She usually comes across as the sunniest person you could hope to meet. Not today.
Barrymore is in London for her new film, Going the Distance. A comedy about long-distance lovers, it co-stars her on-off boyfriend Justin Long. The after-party at Home House went on until 5am — little wonder she looks shattered.
The film is whip-smart, adult, endearingly romantic. Barrymore is adorable as rookie journalist Erin who falls in love with Garrett (Long) after a one-night stand. Which makes her froideur today unnerving.
Drew is Hollywood royalty. Her grandfather, John Barrymore, was a Shakespearean actor (and drinker); her great-aunt was the Oscar-winning actress Ethel Barrymore. But she is also one of the industry's few openly feminist stars. Like her close friend Cameron Diaz, her focus isn't on finding the man of her dreams. She'd rather hang out with her friends.
Today, at 35, in plaid shirt and velvet sneakers, she is the antithesis of the spoiled Hollywood starlet. Thinner in the face than on screen, she is teeny at 5ft 4in.
I ask about Going the Distance and the importance of rom-coms. “I need them at the end of a crap day — a nice happy ending and a fairytale,” she agrees. “On the other hand I like movies that are very grounded in reality but still maintain their comedy.”

Just a day after a report stating that Bethenny Frankel wasn’t asked to return to the Real Housewives of New York City by Bravo came out, a new report states Bethenny is indeed in talks to return for the 4th season of the show.
Why it smells like pee in Kelly's room er I mean SOURCE
This is great because as was evident by yesterday's post, Bethenny is definitely the most relatable character on the show and we need someone to call the other housewives out on their crap. It definitely wouldn't be the same without her! The Bravo execs DO have brains!
Also, the bear is catholic pope shits in the woods layout is new and sucky but must every post be hijacked to complain? let's just celebrate that bethenny may be back yay!

For those who thought Khloe Kardashian's dislike for her sister's volatile boyfriend was just made-for-TV drama, think again.
The reality star, who is married to Los Angeles Laker forward Lamar Odom, took to Twitter early Monday morning to unleash a rant about sister Kourtney's on-again/off-again boyfriend Scott Disick.
The tirade began after a fan tweeted her, "Not 2 b mean but I think you have changed (for the worse) since you've been with Lamar. Single Khloe would b there 4 Kourt."
The fan's message refers to the distance Khloe has put between herself and her older sister whenever Disick is around, namely due to his past anger management issues and inability to make their relationship work.
"I'm there 4 Kourt by not letting scott continue 2 hurt her," Khloe, 26, tweeted. "Tough love it is. Im not going to [forgive someone] 6 times. Ur not me."
Kourtney's relationship with Disick was a central plot on the last season of the E! reality show, "Kourtney and Khloe take Miami." During the show's season finale, Disick is seen left behind in Miami as Kourtney heads back to Los Angeles with their son, Mason, now 8 months.
Khloe continue her Twitter rant, writing, "[People] r so quick 2 say im mean 2 Kourt. Actually I love her but I want 2 protect her. Scott has been not good … 2 her so I need 2 c a REAL change before I feel comfortable letting Mase and Kourt around him."
She added, "I don't allow [people] 2 treat me like crap then open my arms up 2 them so quickly. Kourt needs 2 think before she goes back into her comfort routine.
"This is my sister and my nephew. Of course I would do anything for them. And I have :). I said my part."

Sasha Vujacic Looking Toward Lakers 3-Peat and Maria Sharapova
BRADENTON, FLA -- If Sasha Vujacic has the kind of comeback season he is expecting now with the Los Angeles Lakers, it won't be because he suddenly improved his jump shot or his pick and roll defense.
It will have more to do with the drop shot he's been seeing, or the serve-and-volley game he has come to like so much.
It's tennis -- not basketball -- and more specifically the tennis and the focus of girlfriend Maria Sharapova, former No. 1 player in the world and past Wimbledon champion, that should get the credit for Vujacic's game.
"It's interesting,'' Vujacic told FanHouse over the weekend. "She has helped me. We've helped each other, I think. As two pro athletes -- in different sports -- we both understand what the other is doing and going through, and what it takes to do well in what we do. She's working hard. I'm working hard. It's good together.''
It was Sharapova who convinced Vujacic to come to Florida last week to train for the first time at the acclaimed IMG Academy in Bradenton, where she has trained most of her athletic life.
She is preparing for the U.S. Open that begins later this month in New York. And while she was on the tennis court under the steaming midday sun, he was in the gymnasium 50 feet away, sweating through his own shirt, too. They were doing completely different workouts, on different courts, but they were pushing each other.
She was slamming shots across the net to two men, who were slamming them right back. He was working under the guidance of an IMG trainer, along with his own Serbian basketball coach. She finished before he did, then came into the gym and watched him finish. They left together.
"We're both serious about what we do,'' Vujacic said after he finished. "I played a little (tennis) earlier this summer, but not now. She has to focus on a tournament. I have to start getting ready for my season.''

"Don't just use my picture all over the place."
In a new Vanity Fair piece, the woman on Vampire Weekend's Contra cover explains her $2 million lawsuit against the group, their label, and the photographer who may or may not have taken the picture, Tod Brody. Her full name is Ann Kirsten Kennis and she used to be a sought-after model in the 80s and early 90s. (An amazingly dated portfolio of her work can be seen at Vanity Fair's site.)
The lawsuit revolves around a photo release allegedly signed by Kennis in 2009, though she denies its authenticity. Brody stands by the release, though he's been accused of shady practices in the past. Also, Kennis says her mother took the photo; Brody says he took it during a casting session in 1983.
Vanity Fair astutely points out that the lawsuit highlights a generation gap and our increasingly blurred notions of copyright and permission of use. Kennis said, "You start to see interviews from fans of the band, and they are like, 'I would just be glad that my picture was on it.' Well, not really. They are using it for their gain. Something is wrong here. It's like, don't just use my picture all over the place."
RME @ her. You know she loves the attention. This is her 15 minutes of fame and she should just be happy.

Kieran Culkin has confirmed that the long-delayed Kenneth Lonergan movie Margaret will be released in 2011.
The drama, which sees Culkin star opposite Matt Damon and Anna Paquin, finished filming in 2005 but has been tied up in multiple lawsuits as director Lonergan struggled to complete it in the post-production stages.
Producer Scott Rudin, editor Thelma Schoonmaker and the late Sydney Pollack all tried at various stages to help Lonergan complete the ensemble film, about a young woman witnessing a bus accident and getting caught up in the aftermath.
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World star Culkin told Digital Spy of Margaret's fate: "Apparently we're going to be seeing it in 2011, that's that I hear, but I maybe shouldn't even be spreading that rumor. Actually, I got to see it a little while ago, it's a beautiful movie."
Culkin also called Lonergan's 2000 directorial debut You Can Count On Me, which netted star Laura Linney a 'Best Actress' Oscar nomination, "an amazing movie".

The Trinidad-born, New York City-raised artist has written lyrics about having an alcoholic father who once tried to burn down the house with her mom inside.
Certainly, Onika "Nicki Minaj" Maraj seems to be an unlikely candidate to become one of the most intriguing hip-hop artists of today.
After spending the early part of her childhood at her grandmother's house, Minaj eventually landed in Queens with her parents. By the third grade, she already had an affinity for singing and acting and would later attend the famed LaGuardia Arts High School to study drama.
"I was thinking in my head I was going to be a famous actress," Minaj says. "When I got out of high school, I didn't really want to take time and go and audition, I just wanted to get a job and work and get my own place."
On Irv comparing her to Lauryn Hill.
"Irv has been privy to hear things that I've done that the world hasn't heard," she says. "Based on the music I have out now, that sounds like an absurd comment, but when 'Pink Friday' comes out, you will completely understand why Irv made that comparison."
"The people who still feel Nicki needs to prove herself -- I agree with them. I love the fact that people still feel like, 'Show me more, give me more,' because that's what I was born to do."

Danielle Staub is in line for another epic sit-down -- this time the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star will enter the same room as her ex-husband ... to try and settle a legal war involving accusations of rape, gunplay and dog murder.
It's all over a $5 million lawsuit filed by Danielle's ex Kevin Maher -- who claims Staub slandered him when she claimed Kevin once raped her on a bed of broken glass, forced her to play Russian Roulette, and also murdered her dog.
Now, a judge has ordered both Maher and Staub to attend a mediation hearing in the hopes that they can "facilitate a resolution of the case before it goes to trial."
Maher -- the subject of the now infamous book "Cop Without a Badge" -- tells TMZ, "I will listen to the mediator ... but if the results are not fair and reasonable, I look forward to my day in court when I can call [Danielle] out on her lies."
Maher continues, "I want to be vindicated for the horrific crimes she falsely accuses me of."
The two sides are set to face off on Friday morning in Orange County, California.

"He definitely has this swag to him," she said. "You just have to meet him. I thought that the shoot was all in fun. We had a good time. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion about it.
Kim, 29, was talking about the Elle shoot in which she and Justin, 16, frolicked in the surf together. Bill O'Reilly later blasted Kim for the pics, arguing that if a 16-year-old girl was photographed suggestively with a 29-year-old man, he'd be in "big trouble."

Singer Fantasia Barrino’s father has stunned the star's fans by going public with his thoughts about his daughter's teen rape ordeal.
The Baby Mama singer was assaulted in her school auditorium by a fellow student she has never named and admits the experience initially left her numb.
In a candid new interview filmed for VH1 documentary series Behind the Music, Barrino recalled, "I didn't even cry on my way home; I was numb... (I was) confused. I just felt nasty, disgusting."
Her mother, Diane, offered her distressed daughter a shoulder to cry on - but her father split the family with his reaction.
Diane recalls, "She (Fantasia) broke down, started crying and told me what happened. I held her and cried with her and prayed with her but of course I was devastated."
But her dad, Joe, wasn't as sympathetic.
Barrino explains, "He said, 'If you wouldn't have been running around with those little dresses on it would have never happened.' That was the last thing I wanted to hear him say."
Joe Barrino even agreed to be interviewed for the documentary and stated, "I'm not putting the blame on her but when you're dressing like that, you're saying, 'Hey, there's a party over here.'"
The singer eventually dropped out of school over the rape scandal: "It got out... I was hearing things in the hallways. They were saying, 'I'm gonna do you the same way he did you,' and that for me was it... I figured the best way to handle this was to never go back."
In a new Quinnipiac University poll of Garden State residents, 51 percent said they had an unfavorable view of the show, while just 11 percent had a favorable view. The rest were undecided.
Furthermore, a full one-third of those surveyed agreed with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie‘s recent complaint that the hard-partying stars of the show act out because they’re actually New Yorkers. (Of the eight cast members, only Sammi Giancola is actually from New Jersey. And Paul DelVecchio is from Rhode Island.)
Meanwhile, only 19 percent of New Jersey residents agreed with New York Gov. David Patterson‘s comeback to Gov. Christie — that it’s the seedy Jersey Shore environment that leads otherwise upstanding New Yorkers astray.
Whoever — or wherever — is to blame for the show, New Jerseyans clearly wouldn’t mind if it just disappeared. Some 54 percent of respondents in the poll said it’s bad for their state, while only 20 percent thought it was good. Of course, much of the country seems to like the show, which continues to break viewership records for MTV.
The cast of Merlin is bigging up series three of the show in the latest SFX magazine:
“It’s war. Full-blown war,” says Anhony Head with the kind of zeal his character, Uther, saves for burning witches “It’s huge. I have to say, some of the effects are amazing. When you see a huge, flaming catapult shot rolling down the street, it’s like, ‘Oh my god!’ Big, big stuff.”
Colin Morgan adds:
“Bad things are happening. There are some big things coming up. The third series is set a year in the future. We get straight into the action and we don’t really hold back on a lot of the confrontations, and the changes in the characters are evident right from the very beginning. Friendships are being forged and broken and reborn and burned again. And that’s within the first couple of episodes; really within eight pages of the first script.”
But it’s not all doom and gloom.
“It’s still a family show. Kids can still watch it,” says producer Julian Murphy. “We’re careful about what we do. People watch it on different levels… We also keep a lot of humour. We still do episodic comedy stories. There’s a fantastic story where a goblin appears – played by Mark Williams – which is probably the funniest episode we’ve ever made. But we are a little bit darker than when we started, without a shadow of doubt.”

Are womanizing NBA star Shaquille O’Neal and reality star Nicole “Hoopz” Alexandar headed toward wedded bliss?
Unconfirmed online reports claim the Boston Celtics center popped the question to Alexander at the Sahara Mediterranean Cuisine and Hookah Lounge in St. Louis Monday night. According to The St. Louis Post Dispatch, Shaq got down on one knee and put a ring on it. O’Neal and Alexander reportedly own a home together in Maryville, Tennessee.
The marriage will be Shaq’s second. The NBA veteran’s 7-year marriage to Shaunie O’Neal ended earlier this year. The former couple share four children.
Hoopz, as you may recall, competed for and won the heart of Flava Flav on the rapper’s reality show Flavor of Love. She also competed on the reality show I Love Money and won the $250,000 prize.

Manuel Martin Cuenca, director of upcoming Toronto World Cinema player "La mitad de Oscar," is set to direct intimist psychological thriller "Canibal," a further addition to Spain's burgeoning genre auteur canon.
Cuenca's first venture into genre, "Canibal" reunites him with longterm co-scribe Alejandro Hernandez and d.p. Rafael de la Uz.
It freely adapts a short story by Cuba's Humberto Arenal turning on a man who kills and eats men and women, until he discovers love.
"This is not a Hannibal Lecter. He knows what he does is wrong. But he just can't stop," said Cuenca.
"Canibal" is being written "in the vein of Michael Haneke's 'Funny Games,' where you gradually discover the character's real motives," Cuenca said. Now on a second-draft screenplay, it will be shot in 2012 in a tourist-heavy region -- possibly the South of France or Malaga.
"Canibal" is set up at La Loma Blanca, owned by Cuenca Hernandez and De la Uz.
Jimmy Fallon has urged the public to tweet messages to their favourite stars to him, the best of which will be broadcast at this month's Primetime Emmy Awards.

Providing an example of how the social networking experiment would work, Fallon suggested: "@Blahblahblah says Jon Hamm is the hottest guy of all time. Here he is, Jon Hamm."
