Flawless. I could watch her move for hours lol
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.
(Yes, what we need is another sub-par teen musical dramedy)
The 14-year-old starlet can soon be seen and heard singing the titular role in Janie Jones. This indie drama centers around what happens when a young girl, abandoned by her former-groupie mother, tells a rock star that she is his daughter. The flick also features Alessandro Nivola, Elisabeth Shue and Brittany Snow.
Abigail’s Oscar-nominated Little Miss Sunshine role will head to the big stage in a musical adaptation next year.

"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."
"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.
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.
LMMAAAOOO, "second home" and "lurks the parking lot"
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.

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.”Source
NEW YORK - Rihanna is now under Jay-Z's umbrella.
The Grammy-winning pop singer has parted ways with manager Marc Jordan and is now being managed by Jay-z's Roc Nation Management.
Rihanna told The Associated Press in a statement Wednesday that she's "so excited to take this next step in my career."
The 22-year-old is also launching a new company called Rihanna Entertainment. She says it will "merge all of her businesses, including music, film, fragrance fashion and book ventures."
Jay-Z signed Rihanna to Def Jam in 2005. She's released four albums and plans to release her fifth CD, "Loud," on Nov. 16.
Joining the many stars cheering on the hometown team, Nick Jonas was on-hand for the New York Yankees baseball game last night (October 19).
The "Camp Rock 2" hunk (are they serious?? Who talks like that? lol) looked a bit worn out from his always-busy schedule, yawning as he sat in his primo seats while situated one row back from brother Kevin.
