CW's Acting Out = "Glee meets Bad Santa"


With Fox's Glee topping the rating and music charts, CW has teamed with Bandslam writer-director Todd Graff and the film's producer Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas to develop its own musical and dancing dramedy. Titled Acting Out, the project is described as Glee meets Bad Santa and explores relationships of counselors and staff of a down-on-its-luck summer camp whose new owner is a young curmudgeon in the vein of Billy Bob Thornton in Bad Santa.
 
In addition to writing, Graff is executive producing with Goldsmith-Thomas and may direct. This is a familiar setting for Graff, who also wrote and directed the 2003 film Camp, about a burnt-out Broadway songwriter who goes to work at a musical camp for young performers. It's been a busy selling season for Goldsmith Thomas who has 5 projects set up at various networks, including a drama at Fox with writer Jason Smilovic.

Reality TV show to film at Pasco's (Tampa, Florida) clothing-optional resort

TAMPA — A new reality television show wants seven people to work at a local resort for a month and bare their lives in front of the camera. Because it's TV, there's a catch, of course. The cast must also bare all. Then stay naked for the entire 30-day shoot.

Casting begins next month for "The Nak'd Truth," which will be filmed at the sprawling, clothing-optional Caliente Resort in Pasco County."Caliente caters to a younger clientele, and that's what we were looking for," said Harris Salomon, the show's creator.

Salomon said "The Nak'd Truth" is targeting television's coveted 18-49 year-old demographic, so his ideal cast will have "good character and strong personalities."He will consider narcissistic types as well as wallflowers, he said.

Debbie Bowen, the vice president of marketing for Caliente, said the resort is looking forward to the production."We are the largest and most luxurious clothing-optional resort for young people in America and probably the only place where this series could be filmed," Bowen said in a news release.

Shelf Life of Stars Today Compared to John Lennon & Michael Jackson



Those of us old enough to have seen The Beatles live on The Ed Sullivan Show can easily recall when stars were stars that lasted a long time. What brought this to mind was all the fanfare on October 9th on what would have been the 70th birthday of John Lennon. Although dead for 30 years, this superstar’s fame manages to survive the passage of time and he still serves as a star today to countless millions of people who were not yet born when he died! Another example is Michael Jackson – he too is an idol to millions who were not yet born when he was at the peak of his career.

These days there are stars that fade literally within weeks of becoming famous – an example would be Richard Heene and Mayumi Iizuka of short-lived Balloon Boy fame. They were all over the TV news and internet after they faked the runaway balloon incident involving their little boy – a dirty trick that landed them both in jail. You can find many examples like the Heenes but very few like John Lennon or Michael Jackson.

Jon Gosselin Admits He Made Mistakes, Is Ashamed of His Behavior

After a year of questionable behavior, Jon Gosselin turned to his Twitter account Tuesday to clear his conscience and get some things off his chest.

"I am acutely aware of the mistakes I made in 2009 and I am ashamed of the choices I made," Jon wrote, according to UsMagazine.com. "I have apologized to Kate, my family, and to my friends. Through counseling I have learned to own my actions. My goal is to move forward in a positive direction."


Gosselin said his reason for Tuesday's Twitter diatribe was to "clarify a few things" and share how being on TV has impacted his kids negatively. "The negative effects on my family was my greatest concern and far outweigh any monetary gain we received," Gosselin Tweeted.

"Today, my children are much older than when we first started. They are acutely aware their life is markedly different from their peers,"
he added.

This is Gosselin's second Twitter tirade in the past week. Last Friday, he also posted a long note to his account after losing a bid in court to keep his children off television. They currently appear on the TLC show, 'Kate Plus 8.' See Gosselin's full Twitter tirade from Friday here.

Tyra Banks -- I Fear My 'Mentally Unstable Stalker'

Tyra Banks is scared to death of a "mentally unstable celebrity stalker" who has allegedly bragged about killing "George Bush Jr." -- and now she's asking a judge for protection.Tyra Banks stalker.
Tyra has requested a restraining order against 39-year-old Marten Williams, Jr. -- 6'2", 220 lbs -- claiming he has "targeted and harassed and stalked" Tyra and her family since 2006.

In the docs, filed in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ, Tyra claims the man has a history of mental illness -- and that he believes "he killed George Bush Jr. and that Michael Jackson is alive and living in Long Beach."

Tyra also claims the man has left several "ominous frightening letters and items" at her Beverly Hills home -- including his prescription medication, L.A. County jail wristbands and note referencing a wedding ceremony set for 1/08/11... the day he believes he will marry Tyra.

In the docs -- filed by top gun lawyer Evan Spiegel -- Tyra states, "I am in fear from Mr. Williams for my personal safety, and that of those around me, including my family and employees."

Williams was just arrested earlier this month for trespassing on Tyra's property. Williams told cops he was bringing Tyra "offerings." He was later placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold ... but Tyra's people believe he may have already been released.

Tyra wants Williams to stay at least 100 yards away from her and her family -- fearing that Williams' conduct will "likely continue and escalate" unless the court steps in.

UPDATE: TMZ has learned ... Tyra was granted a temporary restraining order against Williams which is valid until October 28 -- when a hearing will be held to determine if the restraining order will become permanent.

Suri Cruise Will Wear a $6K Princess Costume for Halloween


Suri Cruise is not yet 5 years old, but she's already developed a taste for the finer things in life. The Hollywood tot includes ballgowns and kitten heels among her favorite things, so it's no big surprise that she wants to be a princess for Halloween — what five-year-old wouldn't?

But Suri's costume comes with a jaw-dropping price tag, or so reports gossip rag In Touch Weekly. A source told the mag that the ensemble is worth around $6K, adding, "It's more than a month away, but Suri already has her fairy-princess gown and she will be wearing diamonds with her costume."

Don't be too quick to dismiss the rumors: This is, after all, the same little girl who was photographed playing with a $100 bill as a toddler. (Photoshopped: it's a twenty dollar bill)

Kate Hudson & Matt Bellamy @ ELLE's 17th Annual Women In Hollywood Tribute




They're not afraid of a little PDA!

Even though Kate Hudson can't envision herself walking down the aisle anytime soon, her rocker boyfriend Matt Bellamy sure seems like a part of the family.

On Monday, the actress was honored at Elle's Women in Hollywood event at L.A.'s Four Seasons Hotel, and Bellamy was there and kissing her throughout the event. The two were virtually inseparable all night, holding hands and getting extremely cozy. He even rubbed her back and legs – and she kissed him on the cheek several times.


And while the Muse frontman has already met Hudson's parents, he seemed especially close with her mother, Goldie Hawn, even switching seats at one point so he could sit next to her. At one point, the two bowed their heads and chatted very intimately.

Hawn also offered a hilarious introduction before her daughter was honored, sharing stories from her childhood and revealing a juicy tidbit: When she was born, doctors initially thought the actress, 31, was a boy.

Hudson, meanwhile, was a social butterfly at the event, chatting with Gwyneth Paltrow and stylist Rachel Zoe, who drank sparkling water all night.

Taylor Swift: I Love Being Single

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Taylor Swift does not like talking about her personal life.

Singing about it is another story.

"I will say everything in my music," says the 20-year-old country star. And the past two years of her life – a period that included failed relationships with Joe Jonas and Taylor Lautner (and, apparently, some drama with John Mayer) – gave her plenty of material for her emotionally charged new album Speak Now, out Oct. 25.

"There's been extreme joy, extreme pain, extreme curveballs," Swift tells PEOPLE in the new issue, available on newsstands Friday. "Sometimes when things impact you so intensely, it takes writing a song to get over them."

Love, she says, keeps her at once confused and fascinated. But as much as guys inspire her music, Swift doesn't obsess over her relationship status: "Being single is wonderful and I love it. I don't ever have a morning where I wake up and say, 'I really need to find a boyfriend today.'"

Willow Smith: 'Whip My Hair has message'/May become youngest No.1 Pop star EVER etc., etc.

 

Willow Smith has revealed that her single 'Whip My Hair' holds a special significance.

The 9-year-old told MTV News that the track carries an important message of self-acceptance that young girls can relate to.

"'Whip My Hair' means don't be afraid to be yourself," she explained. "And don't let anybody tell you that that's wrong. Because the best thing is you."

Smith went on to reminisce about the experience of shooting her first music video.

"Having my Warriorettes there, my best friends caring - Jade, Angel Punky, they're just all my best friends - and my family there just made it even better," she said.

"Me and my friends were touching the oranges, 'cos they were, like, real oranges but they were spray-painted. It was gooey."

How to Get Naked Without Taking Your Clothes Off



Machete
may have been received as a harmless Mexsploitation programmer, but as Michelle Rodriguez told us a little while back, the movie was actually something like a Trojan horse, able to smuggle in political fusillades under the cover of a man swinging on his intestines like a rope. But was the film packing more unexpected punch than it had at first seemed? What if, for example, it managed to turn a nudity-averse starlet into a side-boob-flashing screen hottie via CG magic?

The Daily Mail has obtained a picture of Jessica Alba clad in tight, white bra and panties on the film's set, both of which were digitally removed later for her "nude" shower scene. It's a novel new workaround that both helps Alba preserve the pledge she made this year that she'll never do a nude scene, and gives her a tighter, more taut computer-generated body. (It's also going to add a weird new paragraph to nudity riders: "ACTOR agrees that DIRECTOR has the right to add digitally fussed-over side-boob in postproduction.)

Robyn's 'Body Talk' compilation artwork and track list revealed!



Body Talk: Released…
USA – 22nd Nov
Scandinavia – 22nd Nov
Australia – 26th Nov
UK – 29th Nov
Germany – 3rd Dec

I’m going to keep mixing up my tours with studio time and am hoping to stick to this new way of releasing music next year. This is the third, last part and completion of the Body Talk album. It was never my goal to break some kind of a world record in how many songs I could release in a year. Although I think it would count as a pretty good attempt, it’s been about the process for me. It’s been very interesting to try and figure out a more organic way of making music. A way that is unbiased and has it’s starting point in what feels logical to me, but also to the listeners.

Even though it was never a conceptual idea, but a practical solution to the problem of getting bored with just doing one thing at a time, it has influenced not only the music, but all the visual content for the album as well. And the way I’ve communicated with press and listeners. It’s been amazing to share the process with you. As soon as I have had an idea of what I’m doing so have the fans and that interaction has been super interesting and fun to me. As I’m writing this, I am still mixing the third album.

There are 5 new songs ready to be released and I’m also including music from Body talk pt 1 and 2 to complete this body of work in what will make the turbo version of the Body Talk album. Thanks for tagging along with me on this ride!

1. "Fembot"
2. "Don't Fucking Tell Me What to Do"
3. "Dancing on My Own"
4. "Indestructible"
5. "Time Machine"
6. "Love Kills"
7. "Hang with Me"
8. "Call Your Girlfriend"
9. "None of Dem" (featuring Röyksopp)
10. "We Dance to the Beat"
11. "U Should Know Better" (featuring Snoop Dogg)
12. "Dancehall Queen"
13. "Get Myself Together"
14. "In My Eyes"
15. "Stars 4ever"

Crazed fan in Stadium terror had crush on Cameron Diaz



The fruitcake who ran onto the field at Yankee Stadium Monday wanted to confront A-Rod out of crazed jealousy over the star infielder's romantic relationship with Cameron Diaz, police sources told The Post last night.


Grim LeRogue, who legally changed his name from Joe Rogan, was carrying five pictures when he made his mad dash -- including one of Rodriguez with an X scrawled across his face and a gun pointed at his head.

An apparent threat was scribbled across the picture: "You have to go bud, you've ruined too many of our white queens."

LeRogue, who was tackled by security just a few feet from the stands, apparently is in love with the "There's Something About Mary" star.

He also carried a picture of Diaz with the message: "We will be together soon," the police sources added.

Drug Cartels’ Get-Out-of-Jail Strategy: Wrapping Pot in Images of Homer Simpson

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In one of the biggest pot busts in recent years, Mexican authorities seized at least 105 tons of marijuana bound for the U.S. The drugs, seized in predawn raids in Tijuana, have an estimated street value of $340 million. Festooning some of the parcels with an image of Homer Simpson saying, "I'm going to get high, dude!" may appear naive. But considering the Vatican's newspaper declared Homer Simpson a "true Catholic" over the weekend, perhaps it was more a coded plea for clemency.

Is Ambur's Uterus Occupied Again?


Once again, Teen Mom's Amber Portwood has found herself in need of a pregnancy test, but this time the result may be positive! Amber is saying she is pregnant again, an insider close to her exclusively tells Life & Style.

Amber and Gary Shirley --on-again, off-again fiancé and the father of her daughter, Leah -- recently learned of Amber's new pregnancy during a vacation together in Tennessee. "Upon their return, Gary has been telling people that Amber is pregnant again," the insider tells Life & Style.

"Yes, I've heard that Amber is pregnant," Jordan, Sanchez, Gary's best friend, tells Life & Style. But he's not even sure Gary's the father. "Amber has been with at least one other guy while she's still with Gary. She likes to explore."

Jordan says Amber's claim that she's pregnant -- and making Gary believe her -- may just be a cruel hoax. "Amber does manipulate Gary," Jordan admits. "Pretending to be pregnant could just be another example of her trying to manipulate him and keep people interested in the show."

Decade by Decade: Top Iconic Movie Stars (version '50s)



Over the next few weeks days, we celebrate the most-noteworthy celebs who defined their decades and generations, from the '50s to now

By Sean Nelson
Special to MSN Movies


Since the birth of movies, actors and actresses have helped define the eras in which they live. The way they look, talk, dress and behave on- and off-screen gives their audience a sense not only of the power of glamour and artistry, but a sense of what it means to be part of a greater population living through a given slice of history. Whatever our differences, we are bound together (sometimes against our will) by the movie stars who entertain us. That's what makes them icons. By looking backward, with photos arranged by decade, beginning in the '50s with the advent of the modern movie star, these galleries examine how things have changed in the popular consciousness — and how they haven't. A new gallery covering each subsequent decade will go live every two weeks whenever greyfilm gets a chance to post them until we catch up to the present day.

A note about selection: These aren't necessarily the greatest actors and actresses who ever lived (though some of them are). They are instead the definitive stars of their times, the performers who best illustrate what it meant to be a movie star at that time in history, for good and ill. We know we can't please everyone, so we're very eager to read your comments about who we left out. Enjoy. This week post: the 1950s.

TERESA WANTS MOAH MONEY, ANDY COHEN



Exclusive: Tension is building between Bravo and everyone's favorite Jersey 'Housewife,' Teresa Giudice, who has been holding back on re-upping her contract for the hit reality series. But contrary to popular belief that Teresa is just being a money-hungry diva (she's got financial problems, ya know), friends and TV insiders tell me it's simply a matter of fairness.


"I think people deserve to know the truth," a close friend of Teresa tells me exclusively. "Bravo pays Caroline and Jacqueline more than Teresa and she isn't holding out because she thinks she's bigger. She just wants to make the same."


My rock-solid source calls it "crazy" that one of the most popular 'Housewives' in the franchise (the biggest, if you're counting magazine covers) makes less than her fellow Garden Staters. "She brings in ratings and [really] invites viewers into her house, even the birthing room of her daughter," my source says. "That she gets less -- that's crazy!"


Here's how it works: Bravo claims they can only pay the women the exact same amount (it's $250k this season). No one can have more, however, the way the network gets around it is compensating the adult children of the Manzos. "Teresa understands her children can't get paid because of issues with child labor laws, but she just she just wants them to have a college fund," an inside source tells me.


I'm told Teresa believes that each of the three families (Manzos, Lauritas, Giudices) should be getting the same. "It's actually harder for Teresa because her children are small," my source says. "She doesn't have a nanny, and she needs to pay babysitters when Bravo forces her to leave town for filming and press." Adding the amount that adult children are given, I've learned the Manzos are getting $310,000, the Lauritas are second with $270,000 and the Giudices receive the base rate of $250,000.


"Bravo could make it even by giving the Giudice girls a college fund or trust or by paying for a babysitter or an assistant for Teresa, yet they won't," a friend tells me.


Sounds fair to me. Stay tuned, I'm hearing some MASSIVE 'Housewives' news could be hitting the headlines this week.

It's all good... JCVD did not have a heart attack

Re: this post.





Action film star Jean-Claude Van Damme brushed aside reports Wednesday that he had suffered a heart attack on a movie set, saying he was "100 percent healthy."

"Please, do not believe all what you read from rumors on any unofficial JCVD sites," the Belgian-born actor said on his Facebook page.


"Jean-Claude Van Damme is 100 percent healthy, training well for taking the fight and sending his fans and friends much love."


A similar statement was posted on his official website.

Earlier, the entertainment website TwitchFilm.net reported that Van Damme suffered a minor heart attack on a set in New Orleans for the upcoming film "Weapon" and was taken briefly to a hospital.

The report said he flew back to Belgium with his wife, Gladys Portugues, for recuperation.

But the actor's "Muscles From Brussels" offered a different version: "He did not suffer from a heart attack on the set of Weapon as reported on some websites."

the next dystopian YA sensation, Matched

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Now that the Hunger Games trilogy is over, what's the next dystopian saga for teens (and loads of adults) to sink into? One title that's being mentioned is Ally Condie's Matched. Here's your exclusive first look at the book trailer.

Matched is being pitched as "Brave New World meets The Handmaid's Tale," and it comes with a pre-sharpened love triangle. USA Today mentioned it as one of the dystopian teen novels to watch out for in the wake of Mockingjay, and it's already been optioned as a film by Disney and Offspring Entertainment.

Here's the blurb:

Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe, and when to die. It's a small price to pay for a long life of perfection. The Society is entrusted to select your ideal mate, and Cassia has looked forward to her Matching Banquet for as long as she can remember. So when her best friend Xander appears on-screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her perfect match… until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path no one else has ever dared follow. How do you know what to decide when you've never had an option? What happens when love can destroy a seemingly infallible world? In MATCHED, Ally Condie debates perfection and passion, security and uncertainty. It's a suspenseful romance and compelling adventure set in a not-so-distant future, and every element of the world feels frighteningly real.

Taylor Swift: Potential Boyfriends Have Fair Warning



Take it from Joe Jonas and Taylor Lautner: If you end up in Swift's romantic life, she will probably write a song about you.

"It sort of is what it is," she told MTV News when she sat down to chat about her new album, Speak Now, out Monday. "I've had this formula for a long time that I've kind of applied to my music."

So what is Swift's chart-topping formula? "If I continue to write music about my life and my life is always changing, then my music is always changing," she revealed. "And if I change that whole process of writing music, that entire process of writing songs in my bedroom about what I'm going through at that moment — because the only way I know how to understand pain or move past it is to write songs about it — if I change that, I'm really more changing a part of who I am. And I don't really want to start doing that."

With that in mind, Swift has no worries about her dating life — even if she knows her potential suitors might have some reservations.

"It's understandable, but ... I've never kept quiet the fact that I write songs about people," she said. "It's like, this is album number three. You guys have had fair warning!"

What do you think about Taylor Swift's songwriting formula? Is it too personal?

britain's SEXIEST boyband The Wanted tells fans to stop using their tongues




The Wanted Ask Fans To Stop Licking Their Windows

Boyband The Wanted are asking their crazier fans if they'd stop licking the windows of their car.

"We had a girl licking our car window the other day. That was an experience," revealed singer Nathan Sykes.

"It wasn’t clean. There were dead flies all over it so we were a bit worried about her. We were like: ‘Oh God, there’s our fan licking dead flies’.

"I mean, who is gonna snog her after that?," laughed Nathan, "I think I would’ve passed on that one."

Sykes also told the Daily Star that The Wanted are enjoying their popularity. "We’re loving it – who wouldn’t?," he told the paper. "In Scotland it’s craziest. We didn’t go to one place where there weren’t girls following us around.

"But we’re behaving ourselves. It shows people care about what we’re doing and love the music."

The Wanted release their debut album on 25th October, which the band say is edgy pop.

JWOWW's Filthy Couture clothing line shuts down

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

What's the longest anyone on Jersey Shore has paid attention to something? Minutes? Maybe an hour? The only way they could all possibly get along as well as they do is if they didn't pay attention to arguments and random overpowering stenches of vomit for more than a few moments. This may be the reason for the demise of JWOWW's clothing line, Filthy Couture, the e-shop for which just abruptly shuttered. A friend of JWOWW blames "trademark issues," adding, "Money needed to be returned to the people who had ordered clothing." Sounds embarrassing, but not nearly as embarrassing as being on a show with people who pick up used maxi pads and put them under bed pillows.

Radar reports:

"She couldn't handle the clothing line and didn't really have the help she needed," explained her friend.

According to another source another clothing line with a similar name threatened a lawsuit and Filthy Couture shut down immediately.

"She could have given her line a new name but instead just let it go. She's no longer designing clothes for her line and I'm not sure if she'll ever do it again."

There are quite a few losers in this situation: JWOWW's varied and many artistic skills, which stand to be woefully stifled, and everyone who needed an easy Slutoween costume. But who on earth could be suing her over this name? Is it this Filthy Rock Couture thing with barely a MySpace page? Anyone know of a Filthy Couture competitor? If you do we'll be mightily impressed.

John Mayer and Kim Kardashian?


We all know Kim Kardashian, 30, has a history of flings with athletes (see Reggie Bush, Cristiano Ronaldo and Miles Austin) but now a source tells Page Six she’s might be having a change of taste, as she was recently spotted out in New York City with notorious bad boyfriend John Mayer!

“[John and Kim] brought along other friends, but the idea was to see if they would hit it off,” a source reveals. We’ve been following Kim’s love life here in the city, which has so far been limited to one fake date with former One Tree Hill star Michael Copon: “[Michael's] going to enjoy the ride while it lasts and is definitely going to be involved in a few more planned stunts,” a friend of Michael’s told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.

it doesn’t sound like Kim and John are going to turn into anything serious… but if they did, how would YOU feel? Is Kim destined to end up as yet another one of John’s scorned exes (see Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson and Taylor Swift) or is she just the kind of fiery female to change his bad boy ways?

Mark Salling Talks About Songwriting to Aol Music

The hotness that is Mark Salling (aka Puck on 'Glee') recently talked to Aol Music...

'Glee's Mark Salling takes us through his songwriting process in the third video in AOL's exclusive series. The actor/songwriter has just released his debut album, 'Pipe Dreams.'

Calling his songwriting "personal," Mark says he draws most of his ideas from the past. "I can write what I felt from two or three years ago. I can write in the present, but I draw from the past." While admitting he looks back at himself quite often, he likes to look outside of himself for inspiration. "I tend to write from other people's perspectives ... to see a story that really fascinates me and write it from the perspective of one of the characters." In the end, Mark just wants people to "have a good time" when they're listening to his music.

GQ Glee Spread "Borders On Pedophilia"


If anything justifies a slushie in the face, surely it's this kind of nonsense. Yesterday, GQ's requisite hit-it-big, do-a-sexy-photoshoot spread featuring Glee hotties Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Dianna Agron hit the Internet. But while the snaps elicited the usual squees from teens and passing interest from adults, the ever-offended Parents Television Council had quite a different reaction: they think it's tantamount to pedophilia. The fact that the people involved are well past their years as minors—Michele and Agron are 24, Monteith's 28—seems to make no nevermind to the PTC.

"It is disturbing that GQ, which is explicitly written for adult men, is sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters on Glee in this way," PTC President Tim Winter said. "It borders on pedophilia. Sadly, this is just the latest example of the overt sexualization of young girls in entertainment."

Now, now, Winter. If you wanted attention, all you had to do was ask for it.

"Many children who flocked to High School Musical have grown into Glee fans. They are now being treated to seductive, in-your-face poses of the underwear-clad female characters posing in front of the school lockers, one of them opting for a full-frontal crotch shot. By authorizing this kind of near-pornographic display, the creators of the program have established their intentions of the show's direction. And it isn't good for families."

Well, maybe not so much the creators of the program as the magazine's photographer, but potayto, potahto.

"With a demonstrated market of eager fans for an entertaining, musical-themed program like Glee, we wonder why the show's creators feel the need for such graphic sexualization of women. Interestingly, the photos of the male character showed him wearing a shirt, tie and vest."

We hear you, PTC. Next time, we want some equal-opportunity full-frontal crotch shots. Guess this means we can cross "naughty schoolgirl" off the PTC's list of approved Halloween costumes.

Team Zoe Having A Baby Boy..?


 

It's a boy for Rachel Zoe! Or, more precisely, it will be. A source close to the diminutive celeb stylist exclusively confirms to E! News that Zoe and husband Rodger Berman have just learned the sex of their baby.

"They found out they were having a boy in the past week," the source says, adding that Zoe is 18 weeks along.  So far, Zoe, 39, has declined to publicly announce her pregnancy, simply saying there was "nothing to report." 

She has yet to sign on for another season of The Rachel Zoe Project, telling us last month that you "never know" what to expect from her. Well, now we're expecting a bouncing baby boy. Congrats!

Johnny Depp wants Rob Marshall to direct him in a remake of 'The Thin Man'



Vulture hears that Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp has been aggressively courting his Pirates 4 director Rob Marshall (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha) to direct him once again in a remake of The Thin Man at Warner Bros. It'd be a fitting follow-up to Depp's turn as the rum-soaked Captain Jack Sparrow: The famous detective novel by Dashiell Hammett centers on Nick Charles who — after marrying wealthy, young socialite Norah — gives up a career as a hard-boiled gumshoe to become a semi-professional alcoholic and full-time trophy husband.

Eliza Dushku Talks 'True Lies 2' Rumors And 'Taking Over The Family Business'



A potential sequel to "True Lies" is one of those James Cameron projects that might not always be in the forefront of everyone's mind nowadays -- what with the "Avatar" sequel, recent "Terminator" reboot, "Titanic" 3-D transformation, and that rumored 3-D "Cleopatra" movie with Angelina Jolie -- but interest in the project never seems to fade. In fact, fans have been clamoring for a sequel to the 1994 original, which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as a boring dad/badass spy, Jamie Lee Curtis as his wife and a very young Eliza Dushku as their daughter.

Last year Cameron pretty definitively said there wouldn't be a "True Lies 2," but only last month it was announced that a Cameron-produced "True Lies" television series was being developed.

On Friday, I had the opportunity to chat with Dushku about the recently released "Dollhouse" season two DVD and Blu-Ray, and she set the record straight about "True Lies 2."

Dirty Little Hamster: MTV Flipped Over My Anti-Situation Tweets


Angelina from "Jersey Shore" claims she was chewed out by MTV execs yesterday over an anti-Situation tirade she posted online ... a tirade that allegedly included drug jokes and penis jabs.

Jersey Girl #4 was out in NYC yesterday with her gal pal Joanna Hernandez -- from "For the Love of Ray J" -- and the duo explained how the suits at MTV stood over Angelina's shoulder and made her delete her Twitter posts on the spot. 

But Angelina insists The Situation was asking for it ... after he posted a Twitter message that allegedly referred to Angelina as a "dirty little hamster."

The Sitch's manager swears the tweet in question wasn't directed at Angie -- but judging by the verbal attack she delivers in this video, Angie's not convinced.

Still bitter about being fired from America's Next Top Model, the ex-judge has a message for aspiring models hoping to get Tyra Banks' attention: "The one guarantee that you will never make it as a model is to go on that show."
And then there's Naomi Campbell, which Paulina says:
"I have nothing kind to say about Naomi…When she was starting out, she was the most obsequious ass-kisser there was, and two years later, she was like, 'I don't know your name.'"
That seems to be a reoccurring theme in Porizkova's life because Anna Wintour doesn't know her name either!
As for Gisele Bundchen, the 45 year old believes her career is over.
Paulina explains: "She had a baby and she's not that into it anymore. She's not out there pounding the pavement anymore."

AMBUR BULLIES WALMART WORKERS TOO

Teen Mom’ Amber Threatened To Fight A Walmart Employee After Baby Leah Made A Mess In The Store!


It looks like Amber’s ex-fiancé Gary isn’t the only guy she’s threatened!


Amber Portwood loves her Walmart! The Teen Mom star reportedly goes to her local Anderson, Ind., Supercenter “every other day,” an employee tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively — and she even threatened someone who works there! ”One day I was putting stuff on the racks and Amber came by with [2-year-old daughter] Leah,” the employee recalls. “Leah started knocking socks and underwear onto the ground and Amber just looked at me and said, ‘If you have anything to say about this, you can meet me in the parking lot.’”

 

We already know how much Amber enjoys lurking in the Walmart parking lot. (Remember when she was approached by Christopher Hossman and ended up going out with him?) Clearly Amber, who affectionately calls the store “Wally,” considers the Supercenter to be her second home.

The employee also tell us that, even though Amber is there a lot, she “rarely” brings her former fiance Gary Shirley along.

Taylegend Swiftalented's "Speak Now" will sell 1 Mill+ copies first week.



If any album has a shot at selling a million copies in its first week (and it’s been two and a half years since any album did), it’s Taylor Swift’s Speak Now, which comes out Oct. 25.

If nothing else, the follow-up to 2008’s Grammy Award-winning, six times-platinum Fearless will launch a million speculative blog posts, since much of her third album is said to be about “Taylor Swift and that Twilight kid,” as Katherine Heigl put it in a Life as We Know It punchline. Then there’s the song that’s definitely about Kanye West, the single that might be about Glee star Cory Monteith, and the six-and-a-half minute utter excoriation of John Mayer, whose already tough year is about to get a little rougher.

The Winklevi does an interview.

The Social Network’s Armie Hammer Talks Special Effects, Misogyny, and the Downside of Being Tall and Handsome
By KYLE BUCHANON
Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Before The Social Network came out, there was plenty of Oscar buzz about supporting cast members like Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake, but now that some of the dust has settled, there's one name that keeps coming up as a comic scene-stealer and awards dark horse: Armie Hammer, who plays entitled twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. In the movie, a Winklevoss twin declares, "I'm six-foot-five, 220 pounds, and there's two of me," but since there's only one of Hammer, that meant the actor was often acting opposite a body double whose face he'd be digitally grafted onto in postproduction (and when you consider the notorious amount of takes that exacting director David Fincher requires, Hammer's nimble pair of performances is all the more impressive). Vulture caught up with Hammer to discuss some of the controversy that has arisen since the film's release, why the idea of casting him in the Superman reboot isn't exactly a slam dunk, and the drawbacks to being really, really good-looking.

David Fincher obviously used a lot of cutting-edge facial-replacement technology for your role as both twins, but I was just reading about how he had an elaborate effects sequence planned for the opening credits, too. It's almost like he looks for ways to test his technological savvy.
It's very fair to say that Fincher likes to push himself and likes to push technology. He likes to be the flagship, I think, and he's paved his way in this industry by being a peerless visual director who's willing to do things like replace people's heads in movies. I mean, I think that's the reason he does all those commercials, still; he can do all that R&D and test stuff that he can break out later for movies. He's really one of the most technologically minded guys I've ever seen.

KT Tunstall Criticizes 'Sexist' Tabloids Over Shakira Controversy



A few months ago, KT Tunstall became the latest in a long line of victims of tabloid exaggeration. It all began when the Daily Record, a newspaper from her native Scotland, printed some offhand comments she made about Shakira "shoving her lady bits in my face" in the 'She Wolf' video. As Tunstall tells Spinner, it was all blown way out of proportion.

"I said, 'There's a couple of scenes in that video that I thought were really pretty graphic for her.' Maybe Peaches or Courtney or something I would expect, but Shakira? Wow," Tunstall says. "There's a lot of information in those scenes."

While that may sound harsh, Tunstall says she was only using it to make a larger point. "We went on to talk about the fact that sometimes I feel that, for women in music, there is an unhealthy balance where sex is being used to sell music over the music selling the music," she reveals. "It's not with everybody, just with some acts that's a big part of why it's selling. I certainly didn't say that's why Shakira is selling, because she's a very talented, beautiful, graceful, very respected writer. She's a proper artist."

Lindsay Lohan Could Be Sentenced Up To One Year In Jail



Judge Elden Fox could sentence Lindsay Lohan up to one year behind bars when she appears for her probation violation hearing on Friday, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively .

A source close to the actress, 24, told RadarOnline.com: “Judge Fox could be inclined to sentence Lindsay on Friday up to one year in jail. The fact that he ordered Lindsay to appear, even though she is currently in rehab and not planning to fight the probation violation, has Lindsay’s legal team very, very, concerned.”

The insider continued, “Even though Judge Fox has previously said that any dirty drug test would result in an automatic 30 days behind bars, he could go above and beyond that and simply terminate her probation. If he does that, he can sentence Lindsay to up to one year in jail. She would get credit for time served from her stint at Lynwood earlier this year and would probably do four to five months in jail.”

‘Death of a Salesman’ Coming to Broadway With Philip Seymour Hoffman



The director Mike Nichols confirmed on Wednesday that he would mount a Broadway revival of “Death of a Salesman” next fall starring Philip Seymour Hoffman as Willy Loman and Linda Emond as Linda Loman.

Mr. Hoffman, an Academy Award winner for “Capote” and a Tony Award nominee for “True West” and “Long Day’s Journey Into Night,” has been eager to play Willy for some time, Mr. Nichols said in a telephone interview, and the two men have been making plans for a production for months. For Linda they both wanted Ms. Emond, who is perhaps best known for her multiple-award-winning performance as the Homebody in New York Theater Workshop’s 2001 production of Tony Kushner’s “Homebody/Kabul.”

Mr. Nichols and Mr. Hoffman previously collaborated on the 2001 Central Park production of “The Seagull,” which drew mixed reviews.

Mr. Hoffman is 43, on the young side for Willy, who is in his 60s for much of the play though he appears at earlier ages in flashbacks and memories. The last Willy on Broadway, Brian Dennehy, was 60 when that 1999 revival began. But Dustin Hoffman was 47 when he played the role on Broadway in 1984, and the original Willy, Lee J. Cobb, was 37 when he opened at the Morosco Theater on Feb. 10, 1949. (Ms. Emond, for her part, is 51.)

“Willy is different ages over the course of the play — young, middle-aged, old — but what matters is finding the right man to play the part,” said Mr. Nichols, an Oscar winner for “The Graduate” and multiple Tony winner as best director from “Barefoot in the Park” in 1964 to “Spamalot” in 2005. “I’m thrilled to be doing this with Phil.”

Mr. Nichols said there were no plans right now for an out-of-town tryout, and no performance dates and theater to disclose beyond the intention to open next fall. The New York Post reported in September that Mr. Nichols and Mr. Hoffman were planning to do the revival next year.

TLC Considering Sister Wives Renewal... SHOCKING I KNOW

Kody & Robyn’s wedding might not be the last we see of the Browns! Would YOU watch a second season of Sister Wives?


We hope you’re a fan of Kody Brown and his polygamist brood, because we’ve learned that TLC has been in talks with the stars of Sister Wives regarding a second season renewal! “A second season has been discussed, but nothing has been decided,” a source close to the Brown family tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “There have always been discussions for a second part to the series.”
 

 

The source points out that, while a second season is likely, a formal sit-down between the network executives and the family has yet to take place.
 

As for whether or not the ongoing bigamy investigation could affect TLC’s decision to renew the series, our source tells us: “I think TLC is concerned for the family. It would be up to how TLC would feel about it.”

Gaga steals some ho's man, remains flawless and not fat while doing so



Whatever Lady Gaga wants, Lady Gaga gets — even if it's someone else's boyfriend!

In this week's issue of Star, we reveal that Lady Gaga launched an all-out campaign to make her ex-boyfriend Lüc Carl fall in love with her again despite the fact that he had moved on with actress Alex Stebbins. Using sexy outfits, sneaky love games and promises of fame and fortune, Gaga hatched her plan to get win over Lüc.

"One night in June, Gaga showed up at Lüc's apartment and rang his buzzer when Alex was at work," a source tells Star. "She basically offered him the world if he got back with her. It turned out to be an offer Lüc couldn't refuse."

But, Lüc wanted to have his cake and eat it too. The insider explains, "He told Alex to wait for him! It was like, 'I'm gonna see what happens, but don't go anywhere. Hang tight.'" Stunned, Alex packed her things and moved out of the apartment they shared in early June."

For more on how Lady Gaga stole Lüc — including the time she showed up at his workplace wearing a bra and hotpants — pick up the new issue of Star, on sale now. Plus: Details on their secret commitment ceremony in Greece earlier this month!

J. K. Rowling wins Hans Christian Andersen literature award

Harry Potter author 'humbled and deeply honored' by £60,000 prize


Cash in hand ... J.K. Rowling receives the Hans Christian Andersen literature award in Odense.

J.K. Rowling has become the first winner of a new Danish award, the Hans Christian Andersen literature prize. The author accepted the 500,000 kroner (£60,000) award yesterday at a ceremony in Odense, Denmark, the birthplace of the fairy tale writer.

Rowling said she was "humbled and deeply honored" to receive the prize, saying "Hans Christian Andersen is a writer I revere, because his work was of that rare order that seems to transcend authorship," and praising Andersen's "indestructible, eternal characters."

The prize is given to a writer whose work can be compared to that of Andersen, suggesting that figures in Rowling's own fiction such as Harry Potter, Hagrid, Dumbledore or Draco Malfoy are expected, by the judges at least, to have the enduring appeal of Andersen's Ugly Duckling, Thumbelina or Little Mermaid.

The Huxtables, The Cosby Show

From that very first episode, Cliff Huxtable took a refreshingly no-nonsense approach to parenting. Remember when Theo announced he didn't need good grades because he didn't need to go to college? Remember what his dad said? "That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard in my life! No wonder you get Ds in everything... I'm your father. I brought you in this world and I can take you out."

Far East Movement talk touring with the queen of pop



If you are a music fanatic and listen to the radio often, and are always aware of the hottest new acts around, then you have certainly heard of Far East Movement. They have one of the hottest singles on the charts right now called "Like A G6," and it can be heard on radio stations constantly due to the demand to hear the song. What some may not be aware of is that Far East Movement actually toured with Lady GaGa. In a new interview, they discuss what it was like to work with such an inspiring singer, and performer.

As Us Magazine reports, J-Splif of Far East Movement said of working with GaGa: "Being able to tour with Lady Gaga was a crazy experience. It was actually our first time out in Japan, and to just to see her get down as Lady Gaga -- from her sets, to her costumes, to her songs, everything is put together so well. It is almost like you are watching a circus slash theater type of show. You are sitting there for 2 hours and you get worn out from the whole artistry of it. It's just her working so hard and being such a humble sweet person."

When asked if they obtained any great advice from Lady GaGa, Kev Nish revealed it to be: "For instance, we were backstage with Lady Gaga and in her recording studio she has built in these arenas. She just said 'keep your ears to the streets and to the clubs and to the people that have supported you from the beginning.' We practically live in the club, as much as our record is not 100% a dance record, it is heavily inspired by dance. Always keeping in tune with what's hot and what's new is very important."

They have certainly taken notice of the advice given, since the popularity of their current single, "Like A G6" has taken over the radio. Far East Movement performed their smash hit recently on the Lopez Tonight show, hosted by George Lopez.

Butchers warn against wearing Lady Gaga raw meat dress for Halloween



Lady Gaga made waves wearing raw steak to the MTV Video Music Awards last month. Her dress, shoes and purse were all made with meat, as she served up her usual dose of shock appeal. Her fans are scouring Halloween stores for bloody red dresses but the carnivorous look debuted too late for manufacturers to create a costume. Some diehards are planning to wear real meat but New Jersey butchers caution against it.

Young Fashion Designer "Most Insufferable Child Alive"?





Cecilia Cassini is a lauded 11-year-old fashion designer for the stars. She's created looks for Miley Cyrus, "Twilight" star Ashley Greene and "Big Love" actress Bella Thorne. But has she also claimed the title of "the most insufferable child alive" (via The Gothamist).

Cassini, a recent guest on "The Nate Berkus Show," was challenged to create three fashionable looks for young girls. We here at "Eye on Parenting" admire children that follow their dreams and do amazing things. But is Cassini entering the adult fashion sphere a bit too soon? The young designer sported knee-high black boots, a short leopard-print dress and fabric-embellished headband on the broadcast.

Berkus seemed to think her look and mannerisms were a bit too adult, saying to Cassini at the end of the segment, "I do have to say one thing to you: You have to promise me one thing: It's fun to come on TV and you do a great job with this and I think some of the details in your collection are amazing. And I'm not a fashion designer. But you have to promise me that you'll take the time to be a kid, too. To do kids' stuff."

Cassini assured the host, "I do. Yes."
