Blind Item: Which Dead Drama Series is Suddenly Showing a Pulse?

Here’s some news that’ll excite a buncha you… and then frustrate that same bunch, because — sorry! —it comes in the form of a Blind Item: A hit drama series whose final season was announced in the last 12 months may not be ending after all! Know which one yet? I’ll give you some clues…

Though the network told the world that the plug had been pulled, apparently not everyone involved in the show was in agreement about that. In fact, to this day, talks are ongoing behind scenes to extend its run, one way (in its current form) or another (in a tweaked form or even as a series of TV movies).

Sound like something’s rotten in the state of Denmark? Yeah, I’m with ya there.

Another big clue: No, it is not Tru Calling. That was axed ages ago. Let it go!

Your best guesses? Hit the comments section below.

patti stanger haters complain about "editing"

The Millionaire Matchmaker is causing damage in people's lives!! Patti Stanger, though, remains flawless!!

Survivors of "Millionaire Matchmaker" Patti Stanger banded together Tuesday night to watch the season finale of a show that they say ruined their lives.

Season 4 contestants told Page Six the mouthy matchmaker's comments and edits have caused them professional and romantic damage, as they gathered at Hudson Terrace to drown their sorrows.

Collapse )

Meanwhile, sources tell us the show's fifth season, which is about to start filming, will be Stanger's last because Bravo producers can't deal with her demands and tantrums.

"She thinks they aren't giving her the respect she deserves and she's telling friends that she's shopping her show to other networks. But Bravo is tired of her antics, insists it owns 'Millionaire Matchmaker' and wants to continue the show with a different matchmaker," a source said.

Stanger could not be reached. A Bravo rep said the network will soon start production on Season 5 with Stanger, but "it is too early to say anything about Season 6."


Jane Lynch: America Isn't Ready For Gays To Play Straight. And It Might Never Be

I don’t know when or if [gay actors in leading roles] will ever happen. I think because since most of the world is straight — and maybe we'll get to a place where this will happen — most of the world is straight and we want the audience to project their hopes and dreams for love and romance onto those actors. And if it’s not in some way possible, maybe never probably, in their mind that it could never happen, then they're not going to do it. You know, most people are straight, and I think that’s probably why…. This is a business of projection and desiring people from afar. And watching people go through trials and tribulations, so there has got to be some truth to it, in terms of, "I could see myself with that person." Because the leading man and lady are the person we want them to fall in love with, and most of the audience is straight. So for right now, we can only use straight actors.

-Jane Lynch, who doesn't think audiences are ready for gay characters playing straight lead roles, evidently disagrees with Will & Grace creator Max Mutchnick, who doesn't "think the audience is as homophobic as the media" — and Jane Lynch — "would have us believe."


The only thing holding openly gay actors back is other gay people.

ooh, this should make for an interesting post

With this week's release of "I Wanna Shoot Lady Gaga" circulating online, Interscope artist Sabrina explains the motivation behind her new anthem.

My song "I Wanna Shoot Lady Gaga" is not about shooting Stefani Germanotta, the lonely, insecure girl better known to the world as her alter ego, Lady Gaga. The song is about killing off the gimmick, the character of Lady Gaga. Its not meant to be sadistic or evil, I mean, just check out the song's artwork. We used a squirt gun - nothing violent, just metaphorical. I want to kill everything she represents and stands for.

I read in Forbes that Lady Gaga is one of the most powerful and influential people in the world...that thought turns my stomach. To think about how someone who is so morally bankrupt, who lacks integrity and gives slutty a whole new meaning, could hold such a position of influence is sickening.

She sounds pressed and obsessed. She sounds like shes a member of ONTD, tbh. Oh and the song is awful.

Prosecutors Continue Lipsay's Battery Investigation, 'Not Satisfied' With Cops Probe

Lindsay Lohan is moving forward with her new sober life but the investigation of alleged incident involving the actress and a former Betty Ford employee seems to have hit a snag.

RadarOnline.com has learned that the Riverside County District Attorney’s office isn’t satisfied with the case presented to them by the Palm Desert Police Department and wants further investigation into the alleged incident - despite the fact that the alleged victim in the case doesn’t want to press charges.

Several prosecutors and investigators with the Riverside County DA’s office met early Wednesday and determined that more investigation is needed before they can make a decision on whether or not to file charges against the 24-year-old star.

According to a source, the investigation will be conducted by Riverside County DA’s office own investigators – not the Palm Desert Police Department who conducted the original investigation.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden Fox has reviewed Lohan's criminal file relating to the alleged assault against former Betty Ford employee, Dawn Holland, and has determined to take no immediate action against the actress.

Lohan's Palm Desert police report was personally delivered to the Judge last week and was immediately placed under seal.

No timeline has been given as to when the DA’s investigation will be complete.

IBM’s Watson Supercomputer to Play Jeopardy + A Look At Watson's Creation

In February, Jeopardy‘s greatest winners, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter, will play the game against White Plains-based IBM’s Watson supercomputer in a stunt attempting to show how far IBM’s technology has come to mimic the human brain.

Forbes writer Bruce Upbin says he expects Jennings and Rutter to be surpassed by the computer that is ” a marvel of natural language processing that can apply up to 1,000 algorithms to the info equivalent of millions of books. It understands anagrams, puns, wordplay and has memorized every Shakespeare soliloquy, major river and world capitals.”

The computer will have trouble with clues that strictly involve human experience, however, and might not at first understand categories such as “Whirled Capitals,” which is looking for anagrams of world capitals.

Target comes to Canada!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

U.S. retailer Target said Thursday it is buying Canadian discount retail chain Zellers from Hudson's Bay Co. for $1.8 billion.

Under terms of the deal, Zellers locations will continue to exist under that brand name for "a period of time," HBC said in a release. But Target will open 100 to 150 Canadian locations in 2013 and 2014 and assign the rest of Zellers' current network of 220 stores to other retailers.

"This transaction provides attractive long-term value and will allow us to invest substantial capital into our department store and specialty store businesses to continue to drive growth," HBC governor Richard Baker said in a release.

The sale of these leasehold interests is estimated to create over 20,000 net new jobs in Canada and has the potential to generate over $1.5 billion in Canadian economic activity through the renovation of Zellers locations, the release said.

A.J. McLean in Rehab

A.J. McLean from the Backstreet Boys has gone into rehab again ... TMZ has learned.

One source tells TMZ McLean has been "out of control" in the last few months because of substance abuse, and it was interfering with plans for the Backstreet Boys' upcoming tour with New Kids on the Block.

Sources say on a Backstreet Boys cruise last month ... AJ appeared under the influence much of the time.1

McLean has battled addiction for years. He was in rehab in both 2001 and 2002 for alcohol and cocaine abuse.

McLean made a cryptic reference on his Twitter account, writing on January 9, "I love u all and wish me luck! I start my sober journey tomm!"

On January 10, McLean tweeted, "See u on the other side!"

UPDATE: A.J. released a statement saying, "For personal reasons, I’ve checked myself into a rehab clinic. With 2011 being a busy year for Backstreet, I want to be healthy and perform & sing for people at my very best and happiest. None of this will affect our current tour plans and I look forward to seeing everyone really soon! Thank you for all of your support and respecting my family and friends privacy during this time."

The Hobbit to Net Orlando Bloom $1m for Two-Minute Appearance
Jan 12, 2011 by B. Alan Orange

A new report indicates that Orlando Bloom is set to earn $1 million dollars for his upcoming return as Legolas in The Hobbit. The catch is, he will only be in the upcoming Peter Jackson directed prequel for less than two minutes, which makes his return to the The Lord of the Rings universe a fleeting cameo. And an expensive one at that.

A Little Bit of Heaven Trailer: Oh, Look, It’s Kate Hudson’s Cancer Rom-Com

At first, A Little Bit of Heaven, the latest from professional acting slacker and newly knocked up Kate Hudson, seems as uninspired and by the numbers as her previous offerings (Bride Wars, Fool's Gold, My Best Friend's Girl etc.). Hudson plays Marley Corbett, the kind of "emancipated" woman who has a ton of casual sex, eschews feelings, and gets big promotions by convincing condom executives that they ought to be selling directly to women. So, you know, exactly the kind of woman who is waiting for a sweet guy to set her straight and give her a life full of heartfelt sex, lots of feelings, and no condoms.

But just as the guy appears — the pint-size Gael Garcia Bernal, playing Marley's OBGYN — A Little Bit of Heaven reveals it is not content to rehash these same old rom-com cliches. No, it needs more. It needs cancer movie clichés, too. That's right, Marley has cancer. (Look what happens when you use your vagina too much!) So now she and Bernal falling in love, via montage, with no observable chemistry, is supposed to be touching and meaningful. Not so much.

One highlight: Whoopi Goldberg, who, according to IMDb, is playing "God", is seen conversing with Hudson's character while both wear white. This is a good sign that some of this film will take place in heaven (or, the foyer to heaven, where people in movies look down on the people they may be leaving behind), giving it a whole third genre of clichés to mine, and, as befits a project of such subtlety, making the title entirely literal.

Jamie Oliver is Upset Again

Jamie Oliver Speaks About Food Revolution's Problems in L.A.

An Interview with Jamie Oliver: On Corporate Money, TV, and the Mixed Blessings of Both

Yesterday morning, Jamie Oliver brought his Food Revolution to Los Angeles—but as my colleague Liz wrote yesterday, it has already hit a significant roadblock with the refusal of the Los Angeles Unified School District Board to grant the ABC show access to their schools. At a press conference to mark the opening of his Community Kitchen, Oliver was visibly frustrated, asking for the media's help in recruiting parents to put pressure on the seven elected Board of Education members, each of whose names he read aloud.

This is Plan B. If it doesn't work, he's going to go to smaller school districts in the city that are controlled by the mayor directly, and/or charter schools. Meanwhile, he's working on opening a fast-food restaurant ("to understand the pressures of speed, economy, and cost") and spending more time with families. The Revolution will go on, as the television cameras roll.

Jeff Bridges: I Get Trashed After Every Film

The Dude would abide this: Jeff Bridges breaks out the party after every film he wraps.

Long known as a party guy, the 'True Grit' star has mellowed as he's aged. But that doesn't stop him from celebrating when he puts in his hard work.

"I have a cycle that is not particularly cool, but it's a cycle: trash myself to reward myself," he told The Hollywood Reporter in a new cover article. "When I've done a good job, I've worked my ass off in a movie and been very disciplined, then to reward myself I'll take that governor off and say: 'Go ahead and do what you want, man. You want to get drunk? You do whatever you want.'"

Gwyneth Paltrow Gives “Helpful Advice” To Busy “Working Moms” Like Herself

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

There was a post yesterday asking why so many people hate Gwyneth Paltrow. Gabe at Videogum provides one explanation:

Look, at the end of the day it’s OK that Gwyneth Paltrow hires a bunch of college freshmen to write a lifestyle newsletter under her name about platinum mid-century bathroom fixtures. It’s not actually HURTING anyone. But does she have to be SUCH. A FUCKING. LIAR about it? The new “issue” of Goop is up in which Gwyneth provides useful tips to WORKING MOTHERS like HERSELF. Oh good GOD. NO. FUCKING. WAY. NO. NOPE. She is fucking with us now, right? That is almost comically offensive! I’m pretty sure the publication of this issue of Goop is what happens just before the beginning of Children of Men. “People just stopped having babies. We don’t know why.” Yes we do. BECAUSE THEY WERE TOO BUSY BARFING. She begins:


One of our readers emailed GOOP about “finding a good balance between having a career and being a mom,” which got me thinking about the other extremely busy working mothers I know and what their days might be like. I asked Juliet de Baubigny, a venture capitalist I met (it’s no wonder this woman is so freakin’ successful—spreadsheets for family packing … wow!), and fashion designer Stella McCartney to send in a day in their lives to see how they do the mothers’ special—everything all at once. I learned a lot and got some good tips from these ladies. And, because some of you have asked what one of my days looks like, I’ve included a random one of my more manic days from last November.


Right. Perfect. She asked TWO OTHER MILLIONAIRES to provide advice in addition to her advice as a MULTI-MILLIONAIRE WHO LIVES IN A CASTLE IN ENGLAND. You know, just useful tips for the workin’ mom. (I also love that she picked a day from last November. From the vault!) Now let us talk about this fucking day:

Another person is jealous of Taylegend Swiftantalizing.

MANILA, Philippines - Filipino pop diva Kuh Ledesma is calling for the immediate regulation of concerts by major international idols such as Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars.

In an interview, Ledesma said lawmakers must study how to protect the interests of Filipino artists who are being challenged by concerts of international singing stars such as Swift, Mars and Justin Bieber. She said the foreign artists are now holding concerts during the traditional "concert seasons" in the Philippines such as Valentine's Day and Summer.

Ledesma is holding a major concert on February 12 and 13 at the PICC with the Hitmakers: Rico J. Puno, Marco Sison, Dr. Nonoy Zuñiga, and composer-singer Rey Valera. It will be the first time that Kuh performs with The Hitmakers.

The concert will be held a few days before the Taylor Swift concert at the Araneta Coliseum on February 19. Tickets for the Swift concert are sold out.

Advanced sales of Justin Bieber's concert at SM Mall of Asia on May 10 are also picking up. A local promoter who declined to be named said foreign artists are flocking to the Philippines and other Asian nations due to insistent public demand.


Basically, this chick is severely jealous that she cannot compete with Taylor's success and ticket sales and wants to virtually cripple her.

Nick Stahl Cast In Fox Pilot 'Locke & Key', Which In Now Targeted For Next Season

By NELLIE ANDREEVA | Wednesday January 12, 2011 @ 4:27pm PST

EXCLUSIVE: Nick Stahl has joined the cast of Fox's drama pilot Locke & Key, which was originally targeted for summer but is now for fall consideration. The project, from producers Kurtzman/Orci, 20th TV and DreamWorks TV, is based on Joe Hill's comic. It tells the story of Nina Locke (Miranda Otto) and her three children, Tyler, Kinsey (Sarah Bolger), and Bode who, after the brutal murder of Nina's husband Rendell Locke, return to Keyhouse, his old family home in Massachusetts. There, they are pestered by an evil entity named DODGE that's determined to hold the family hostage one way or another until it gets what it wants. Stahl will play Rendell's younger brother Duncan Locke, an art teacher, who lives nearby and frequently visits Nina and the kids and who strangely has few memories of his time growing up in Keyhouse. Stahl, repped by ICM and KLWG, next co-stars opposite Zoe Saldana in the indie Burning Palms, which premieres tonight.

Here is what Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly said about the change of plans for Locke & Key at yesterday's Fox TCA executive session: "Originally, we had it on a summer track... They just simply couldn't make the dates. We were going to rush it creatively. So we've got it in the hopper now for May, and we'll just figure out where it should be programmed best."

Taylor Swift was left "upset and hurt" following her split from Jake Gyllenhaal, according to sources.

The celebrity couple, who began dating in October, broke up shortly before Christmas, allegedly due to Gyllenhaal's reluctance to enter into another high-profile relationship after his split from Reese Witherspoon.

An insider has now apparently told US Weekly that Gyllenhaal chose to dump Swift over the phone - a move which left the popstar feeling "really burned".

The insider said: "Taylor is really upset and hurt. She doesn't know what she did for him to just put a stop to it. She feels really burned by him."

A separate source, who allegedly spotted Swift at last week's People's Choice Awards, added: "She was not her usual bubbly, over-animated self. She didn't eat anything, seemed very sad and definitely wasn't having a good time."

Kanye’s Watch: For Kanye, By Kanye, Of Kanye

The $180,000 watch was made by Tiret over the course of five months. Here’s a description:

The dial itself is in gold toned mother-of-pearl, with a combo of white, yellow, brown, and black diamonds. The bezel is lined with very large diamonds as well. The watch is said to have a total of about 8 carats of stones. Kanye’s face has been immortalized on the dial – complete with sunglasses.

I mean, it’s nice. But it’s no bottom row of teeth. I look forward to the day when Kanye becomes the world’s first man to be made entirely of diamonds. Then he’ll never have to look in the mirror, he can just look at his watch. I’ll give it 6 months.

Idol staffer calls Paula Abdul an "Idiot"

"I'm knocking and nobody's answering and I go, 'Guys!' They came out from the other room and they go, 'Uh, idiot, you're knocking on your old dressing room.'

Paula Abdul may have left "American Idol," but she can't seem to get away from the hit reality show-- as she films her new CBS dance competition series, "Live To Dance," next door to her old haunting ground.

"What's is embarrassing is I came out of the control room -- I ran because I had to start getting ready [for the show] -- and I go to open up my old dressing room door and it won't open," Paula told AccessHollywood.com's Laura "Dish of Salt" Saltman, at a taping of "Live To Dance" on Wednesday. "I'm knocking and nobody's answering and I go, 'Guys!' They came out from the other room and they go, 'Uh, idiot, you're knocking on your old dressing room.'

While the singer-choreographer-producer has distanced herself from "Idol," she maintains there won't be any awkwardness when she runs into her old pals next door.

"It was habit," Paula laughed. "It was crazy."

Jay Baruchel and Alison Pill Dating

TORONTO - Jay Baruchel says filming his hockey movie, "Goon," was more like a romance for him — he started dating co-star Alison Pill.

Baruchel says he and the 25-year-old actress were drawn to each other almost as soon as they began filming in Winnipeg three months ago.

The couple turned up hand-in-hand at the Toronto Film Critics Association awards on Wednesday, when Baruchel presented an award for best Canadian feature to Denis Villeneuve for "Incendies."

Baruchel says he met Pill for the first time on the set of "Goon," based on the real-life story of a bouncer who overcomes long odds to rise through the ranks of semi-professional hockey.

The 28-year-old explains their connection by saying they're "both huge nerds and homebodies."

Pill, known for her roles in "Milk" and "In Treatment," lives in New York, but Baruchel says that lately she's been spending a lot of time in his hometown of Montreal.

"We enjoy each other's company," Baruchel said.

"Goon" also stars Seann William Scott ("American Pie"), Liev Schreiber ("X-Men Origins: Wolverine") and is directed by "Fubar" filmmaker Michael Dowse.

Baruchel adapted the script from the book "Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey" by Adam Frattasio and Doug Smith.

He said it's currently being edited in Montreal and he hopes to have it ready for theatres in September.

"It's Canada's pastime," he says of the appeal of a hockey film.

"This is the best country in the world, we play the best sport in the world why wouldn't we make movies about it."

Carey Mulligan to return to theater

NEW YORK – Carey Mulligan is returning to the New York stage this spring — and she'll be losing her mind.

The elfin actress who shot to fame with the film "An Education" will star in an adaptation of Ingmar Bergman's 1961 film, "Through a Glass Darkly." The adaptation is to premiere off-Broadway starting May 13.

Mulligan, 25, will play an intense young woman harrowed by psychiatric illness who spirals out of control while on holiday off the coast of Sweden with her fidgety and much older husband, her novelist father and her callow brother.

"It's an incredible descent into insanity. It's horribly scary and I have no idea what I'm going to do," she says by phone from Los Angeles, adding that the part was too meaty to give up.

"Everyone wants to play someone with a problem," she says, laughing.

Pac-Man Reality Series In The Works

Waka waka waka! Pac-Man, is headed to reality TV. Merv Griffin Entertainment has teamed with leading game maker Namco Bandai Games America, which owns the Pac-Man brand, to develop an unscripted series based on the hugely popular video game. This marks the first major foray into TV for Pac-Man whose only previous TV presence was a short-lived animated series in the early 1980s. The project also coincides with the 30th anniversary of the best-selling game and 1980s pop culture icon.

The Pac-Man reality series is envisioned as a "big, crazy Wipeout-type event with a lot of energy," said Merv Griffin's president of TV Roy Bank. "The idea we have is to take what Pac-Man is and bring it to life, to bring what is essentially the world's biggest game of tag to television." Bank is executive producing the project, which is now being taken out to the broadcast networks, with David Russo, who brought the idea to him.


Bones Spoilers

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Bones returns Jan. 20 with its first new episode of the year, and there’s one thing you can count on: Brennan’s long-awaited confession of her feelings for Booth in the December cliffhanger will be addressed immediately, like in the second scene when Booth tells Sweets about it. The fallout from Brennan opening Pandora’s box again will be a major focus of the second half of the season, executive producer Stephen Nathan says. “We’re dealing with how does this make Brennan feel, how does she move forward, what is the pain that she now carries with her after this confession and how does it affect Booth and Hannah. Does Booth keep that conversation a secret from Hannah? That wouldn’t make their relationship very solid. If he does tell Hannah, how does that make her feel, and what does that do with her relationship with Brennan?” Brennan will try to compartmentalize her feelings, as she’s always done, but she won’t be as successful, he says. And a lot of this will be dealt with in the much-anticipated episode in which Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) get stuck alone together in an elevator.

HBIC Marthallah Stewart rushed to the ER!

I returned home from my trips to Cartagena, Columbia, South America, and Orlando, Florida on Tuesday night, right before the predicted snowstorm. I unpacked, sorted my stuff, and played with the dogs. I planned to get into New York City that night, so I would not be delayed in the morning by the snowfall – twenty inches were forecast! I had a 7:00AM call at the Today Show and a 9:00AM call for the Martha Show. As I leaned down to whisper goodbye to a dozing Francesca, I must have startled her, because she bolted upright with such force that she hit me in the face like a boxing glove hitting an opponent’s face. I was entirely startled and my neck snapped back. I felt a bit of whiplash as blood gushed forth from my split lip. Frannie was as upset as I was and cowered in her bed.

Rushing to a mirror, I realized it was a pretty serious gash.

Marthallah is an amazing inspiration for all women (and men tbh), and for her to document this traumatizing experience is truly incredible. I spared the gorier pictures for those of you as squeamish as me. It hurt me to see this beautiful women in pain.

'New Torchwood not a reboot'

Torchwood creator Russell T. Davies has insisted that the show's fourth series is not a reboot.

The new ten-part run, subtitled Miracle Day, will air on BBC One in the UK and Starz in the US.

"It's been off air for a couple of years and actually that shows on-screen," Davies told AOL Television. "But importantly for fans, there's not a glitch. It's literally the same show."

However, the writer admitted that he is keen to attract new viewers to the show.

"With a new channel and a new start, it could be brand new for you," he said. "There are new characters... who know nothing about Torchwood. They're like the new... audience. [New viewers] can all come and join in. Part of the legend of the first episode is digging up the mystery of Torchwood."

He also revealed that the final episode of previous mini-series Children of Earth was intended as a possible series finale.

"Children of Earth sort of ended in disaster, death and tragedy and that could have been the end," he explained. "We literally thought if that [series] hadn't worked, we'd be sitting here mourning and still crying [at] something [that] had been killed in its prime. It was a nice, decent ending if it needed to be, [but] thank God, it's come back."

Torchwood: Miracle Day stars John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Mekhi Phifer and Bill Pullman and will premiere later this year.


Still awaiting confirmation that, per my instruction, we will meet Ianto Jones' long lost twin brother Yanto Jones and that there will be some sort of Party Down crossover episode.

Actor David Nelson dies

Actor David Nelson, the last surviving member of the wholesome television family portrayed in The Adventures Of Ozzie And Harriet, has died aged 74.

Nelson died in Los Angeles on Tuesday (local time) of complications from colon cancer, his representative Dale Olson said.

He played a fictionalised version of himself as the eldest son of the Nelson family in the sitcom during the series' entire run on ABC America from 1952 to 1966.

Viewers were treated to a depiction of idealised suburban American life, and to the domestic exploits of Nelson and his kid brother, Ricky, who went on to become a popular singer.

Nelson also starred in a number of movies, including 1990's Cry-Baby.

Nelson is survived by his wife, Yvonne, four sons, a daughter and several grandchildren.

Charlie Sheen's Former Madam: Lindsay's A Drug Addict, Charlie Just Likes To Party

Heidi Fleiss has told RadarOnline.com that there is "no comparison" between Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen.

The famous former Hollywood madam -- who used to regularly supply hookers for Sheen -- claims people should just allow him to party as hard as he wants.

The Two and a Half Men star recently had a wild time with porn star Bree Olson and some of her pals in Las Vegas, raising fears that the troubled actor is in need of an intervention ASAP.

But Fleiss does not believe any such drastic action is required for Sheen, claiming it's Lohan who needs to be constantly monitored.

She said: "Look, people need to leave Charlie the f**k alone. Do they really expect him to go to church when he is not working?

"He is the highest paid actor on television -- on a really popular show -- and he always delivers by turning up on time and putting in great performances, and that's all that matters.

"There is no comparison with Lindsay Lohan because she is not functional and is an addict with a sickness - I should know because I've been to rehab several times too.

"It's not as if we see Charlie smoking a crack pipe or anything, the guy just loves to party, and people just don't seem to want to accept that.

"Also, Charlie is making a lot more money than Lindsay and he should be allowed to spend it whatever way he sees fit. She's the one that has to try and get her career and life back on track. He's doing fine.

"Really - Charlie Sheen with hookers? It's not a real surprise, is it? Who's fooling who here?!"

Warner Bros Taps Shane Black For Japanese Manga 'Death Note'

EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros has hired Shane Black to direct a live action adaptation of the Japanese manga series Death Note. Black will oversee a script that’s being written by Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry, his accomplices on Doc Savage, a drama he'll direct for Sony Pictures Entertainment. Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Doug Davison and Brian Witten are producing Death Note.

Written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, Death Note was originally published in Japan and later collected in 12 trade paperbacks that have sold more than 38 million copies worldwide. The protagonist, Light, is a bright student who stumbles across a mystical notebook that has the power to kill any person whose name he writes in it. Light decides to launch a secret crusade to rid the streets of criminals. Soon, the student-turned-vigilante finds himself pursued by a famous FBI criminal profiler known only by the alias L. Death Note is wildly popular in Japan and has been turned into live action and animated films, an animated TV series, novels and vidgames. The trio of live action films were distributed by Warner Bros Japan. Warner Bros acquired the manga rights from Shueisha and previously got a script draft from Charley and Vlas Parlapanides.

Death Note was the favorite manga of Black, who made his directing debut on Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, the 2005 cult favorite that helped re-launched Robert Downey Jr.’s star. I’ve been covering Hollywood long enough to recall those heady 1990s days when Black became Hollywood’s spec script king. After landing $250,000 for Lethal Weapon, a script he sold right out of UCLA, Black's subsequent scripts sent studios into a frenzy. Black was paid $1.75 million for The Last Boy Scout and then set a record with the $4 million New Line paid for The Long Kiss Goodnight. He and Basic Instinct scribe Joe Eszterhas played a game of can-you-top-this that made for late nights for this journalist, and an excitement that just doesn’t exist in the business that rarely gets competitive enough for studios to bid up anything. One of the reasons Chris Nolan got so much industry respect for Inception was because he gambled on himself and wrote that film on spec.

I haven't seen Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, but I heard it was a good movie so hopefully this won't be a disastuh.

Etta James Diagnosed With Leukemia

Iconic vocalist Etta James, best known for the song 'At Last,' is battling leukemia, the Associated Press reports. According to documents filed by her husband Artis Mills, who's seeking to control her finances, the 72-year-old has been undergoing treatments for Leukemia and suffers from dementia.

James has largely remained out of the public eye during the last several years, although she did make headlines in 2009, after criticizing Beyonce's rendition of 'At Last,' which she'd sung for the during President Obama's inauguration. That same year, she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

According to the documents, she's currently unable to perform basic hygienic functions or feed herself.

In the '50s and '60s, James became one of the most recognizable voices that straddled jazz, blues and R&B. Over the course of her career, she's won four Grammys and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. She also recorded 27 studio albums, issued an impressive 58 singles and helped solidify Chess Records as one of the premiere record labels of its era.


Natalie Portman: HYPOCRITE.

“I'm pretty much a boring Goody Two-shoes. I've definitely gotten drunk before, I don't think it's possible to go through college without getting drunk, but I don't really like it at all. I actually tried my first cigarette last year at school. I just figured, if many people are smoking, there must be something to it, and before I pooh-pooh it I should at least know what it's about. I took one puff and I was like, OK, I was right. There's nothing to it. They're just wrong, it's disgusting.

Bale bans daughter from acting professionally

Christian Bale will never allow his daughter to follow in his footsteps as a child star, insisting kids should be able to "get into trouble" and make mistakes away from the spotlight.
The actor was just 13 years old when he was cast in Steven Spielberg's Empire of the Sun, and wishes he could have enjoyed more of his youth before shooting to fame.

And Bale wants his five-year-old Emmeline to have an anonymous childhood before trying to make it in Hollywood.

He tells Empire magazine, "(I) didn't like that (being famous as a teen). That wasn't for me at all. Some people can deal with it, but I found it to be a complete pain in the arse and embarrassing. Also, there was the annoying notion of everyone going, 'Ah, you should know better' when I was done for shoplifting. But, no, I shouldn't have known better. There was no reason I should. I could have done without that side of things. It was nice to go travelling and have those experiences (filming movies), but look, if anyone in my family - my nieces or my daughter - wanted to start at that age, I'd absolutely believe in and support their dreams, but I would tell them, 'No bloody way - not professionally.'

"It's just too young. You need to be anonymous at that age, you need to go and get into all sorts of trouble and not have anyone know who you are. It's ruined when everyone knows who you are."



With a roster that plays hosts to artists like R. Kelly, Toni Braxton, Timbaland, JoJo and the late, great Aaliyah, Blackground Records should sound like a dream home to any hip-hop artist. Actually, when you're hungry and eager to become a successful singer, signing any contract is half the dream. The second part is building a monster collection of passionate songs to release in the hope that people love you.

The key word there is release.

After signing a seven album deal with Blackground at the age of 12, JoJo had started down the road to music stardom. But after releasing two albums in two years ("JoJo" in 2004 & "The High Road" in 2006), her journey came to a sudden stop. Since '06, no further CD's have been released and any song you've heard from her was either on a free mixtape, on featured spots in other artist’s music or snippets of her belting as a film/TV character.

So where are the other five albums JoJo was promised as a child when she thought she was turning her dreams into a reality? Stuck in limbo, that's where.

So why won't JoJo just leave this contract? Because it was signed -- and officiated -- when she was a child, so it's super duper tricky.

Bill Hudson shopping tell all book on Goldie Hawn

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Goldie Hawn's former husband Bill Hudson, father of her actress daughter Kate Hudson, is shopping a devastating tell-all book about his ex.

The proposal, tentatively titled "So You Are a Star," teases: "What if your ex-wife used her public platform to spread rumors about your relationship with your children?" It describes Hawn as "a movie star who enjoyed having 'open relationships' and limiting access to their children."

Musician Bill, who divorced Hawn in 1979, has remained estranged from their children Kate and Oliver, who were raised by Goldie and her longtime partner, Kurt Russell.

Bill told us last night that Kate and Goldie "have said things about me to the press that are untrue, that I abandoned my family. I tried to stay in contact with my children, but Goldie made it impossible."

Diane Nine, Bill's agent, said, "We are meeting with publishers next week. But the proposal is quite explosive. What he really wants is a relationship with his children and he hopes this will help." Reps for Goldie and Kate didn't get back to us.

Well, jeez, Bill, I can't think of a single reason why your children want nothing to do with you. Oliver and Kate don't have to have a relationship with him or his family.

Michael Sheen to be next Bond villain?

The actor, who has played the role of Tony Blair on three different occasions, has apparently been cast by producer Barbara Broccoli as he is the 'perfect fit' to play the baddie.

A source told The Daily Mirror: 'He brings a real intense and creepy quality to the table.'

According to the newspaper, the actor, who most recently took on a role in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, was suggested for the part by his long-time collaborate Peter Morgan.

Spooks actor Simon Russell Beale may also be in line to play a role in the next Bond movie, after Broccoli watched him perform in Deathtrap in the West End a couple of times.

Last month, Beale said: 'Every actor wants to be in Bond. I'd love to be a baddie.'

However, his spokesperson said: 'It's too early to confirm anything, but the part he is up for is not a baddie.'

He added: 'There was this assumption he was up to play such a character, but it was never the case.'

Dame Judi Dench is said to be reprising her role of M in the next flick, adding to the line-up of British talent.

'I think I'm going to be needed in the spring of 2012. That's the message I got,' she said.

Nicki Minaj says she and Rihanna would be a "crazy power couple"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Drake is not the only one rumored to be dating Rihanna these days. His Young Money cohort Nicki Minaj has recently been linked with the newly single singer. While Nicki laughs off the rumors, she doesn’t rule out the possibility of a future hook up.

The Harajuku Barbie called into Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS FM show this morning to clear up the situation. “I don’t know where people got this really insane, hilarious, random rumor that [Rihanna] and I were living together,” she said.

The sexy ladies laughed about the chatter while shooting the video for “Fly” from Nicki’s debut Pink Friday last weekend in Los Angeles. “We just shot a video for a song I have on the album called ‘Fly,’” shared Nicki. “So when I saw her, the first thing I said was, ‘So did you hear we’re living together?’ And we just started cracking up laughing. She was like, ‘Yo, I can’t believe people are this ridiculous.’”

She continued, “So we TwitPiced ourselves and she put it on Twitter and said, ‘Me and Nicki at our new pad or something.’ And the funny thing is, people still didn’t realize we were joking. People were hitting me like, ‘Oh my God, you’re so lucky. You and Rihanna…’ It was like, ‘What?’ But you can’t even be sarcastic anymore. It was hilarious though.”

While they’re not an item, the fantasy is not completely dead. “We’re not getting cozy—yet. There is a possibility ’cause she’s just a bad bitch. You never know. That’d be like a freakin’ crazy power couple right now in the world of females.”

Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg Teaming for 'I Hate You Dad'

The film centers on a father who moves in on the eve of his son's wedding and promptly begins feuding with the bride-to-be.

Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg are in talks with Columbia Pictures to star in I Hate You Dad, a comedy that Sandler’s Happy Madison banner is producing.

The story centers on a father who moves in on the eve of his son's wedding and promptly begins feuding with the bride-to-be. Sandler would play the dad, with Samberg as the son, even though less than 12 years separate the two in real life.

Dad is still in the development stages, and no director is on board, but the two actors are attached. The project is one of several in development at Happy Madison as possible starring vehicles for Sandler. Columbia initially picked up the project in August 2008.

Heather Parry is overseeing for Happy Madison, while Sam Dickerman and Adam Milano are shepherding for Columbia. Dad was written by David Caspe with a rewrite by David Wain and Ken Marino.

Sandler is a Saturday Night Live, alum while Samberg is among the current cast’s stars. He has made ventures into film, starring in 2007’s Hot Rod and playing supporting characters in such comedies as I Love You, Man. Co-toplining a Sandler pic would give Samberg his biggest movie break yet.

Sandler, one of Hollywood’s few reliable hitmakers, will next be seen in Just Go With It, which opens Feb. 11. He is repped by WME and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

Samberg, repped by UTA and Mosaic, will next be seen in Friends With Benefits, Screen Gems’ take on the sex-with-buddies genre that stars Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis.

Taylor Momsen Blames the Media for Portraying Her Accurately


After complaining in an interview with Revolver that her stage parents ruined her life by forcing her into show business ("My parents signed me up with Ford at the age of 2 ... no 2-year-old wants to be working, but I had no choice"), Gossip Girl's Taylor Momsen has given an interview to Kerrang in which she "sets the record straight" about what exactly she said. First of all, though she may have implied she did not have a childhood, she was in fact youngerat one point.

"Maybe I didn't have the childhood people think you should have, but I still went through the ages," Momsen explains. "I was still a child."

Okay, good to know.

She goes on to apologize to her parents, who she says felt "horrible" reading the interview, for saying the things she said — or that she maybe didn't say.

"I think my parents have learned by this point that none of [what they read] is probably true, and words can be put in your mouth."

This is true. It's also true that oftentimes, words can come out of your mouth, which is what happened in that case.

English songbird Adele may be one of the world's most celebrated artists, but the 22-year-old Grammy-winning star still resides in north London with her Mom. And like most women, she has an unhealthy love for designer purses and she's not afraid to go a bit gaga when crossing paths with some of Hollywood's finest.

In a recent interview with The Sun, the "Chasing Pavements" singer says she's not as serious as some of her chart-topping singles might suggest. "With my records I am serious and sad but I get it out of me on my records. I've been told some of my songs make grown men cry. Then people meet me and it's all giggling and laughing. I suppose it's healthy."

It's a good thing Adele has a sense of humor. Back in 2008, when she was a musical guest on Saturday Night Live, Adele accidentally thought Republican politician Sarah Palin was comedian Tina Fey. Yikes! Don't ya just miss Fey's spot-on parodies of the former Alaska governor?

"I knew that Tina Fey was going to be on the show and when I saw Sarah Palin I thought it was Tina," Adele explains. "I was going 'Tina, Tina!' then quoting lines from the movie Mean Girls, because she wrote it. The security guard had to barge me out the way thinking I was some f****** freak."

A chance meeting with Sean Combs a.k.a. Diddy (P. Diddy back in the day) didn't go so well either. The pair happened to be on the same lot where Adele was shooting a video. During a long break, Adele says she kept herself entertained by driving around in a golf cart. But before she knew it, she was fumbling to bring her toy wheels to a screeching halt.

"I was in the buggy with a mate and I saw him," she says. "I meant to put the brake on and go, 'Oh, you're P Diddy!' But I hit the accelerator. He had to dive out the way. As we went past I was like, 'You're P. Diddy.' He just said, 'Yeah, I know.' I almost, almost killed him."

Oh Adele, what a dear! Her hotly-anticipated sophomore effort, 21, arrives February 22 in the U.S. The ballsy blues-tinged "Rolling In the Deep" marks its first single.

How Gary Ross beat out Sam Mendes & David Slade to direct The Hunger Games
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Scoring the director's chair in the live-action movie adaptation of Suzanne Collins' wildly popular Hunger Games series was no easy task. But Gary Ross knew exactly what to show the studio to beat out all the other Hollywood contenders. The Hunger Games is set in a post-apocalyptic Earth where every year the governing "Capitol" holds the Hunger Games, a televised event in which one boy and one girl from each new worldly district fight to the death.

According to the L.A. Times the director of the film adaptation Gary Ross (of Seabiscuit fame) wasn't the first choice. He still had to beat out names like David Slade and Sam Mendes. But after he showed Lionsgate a collection of video interviews he'd shot of, "his kids' friends explaining why the books mattered to them, and what they loved about the series' heroine, Katniss Everdeen," the studio was sold. Smart move, as it's the fans who have been generating all of the buzz for this book since day one. It's also pretty exciting to have a director who isn't afraid to find out what people really loved about the series.
According to the L.A. Times:
"What was amazing was how insightful these kids were about this book and about Katniss as a character," says producer Nina Jacobson. "It was so clear that Gary was interested in what the fans cared about."
The producer also mentioned another part of Ross that should get you excited for this film, his understanding of main character Katniss:
"In terms of his understanding of Katniss, he has twin teenage children who are a boy and girl," says Jacobson. "I felt he understood the duality of her character. She's not a traditional heroine in that frequently heroines are interested in love first and foremost and other things are secondary. That's the least of her concerns. And yet, she is a girl. She's not a boy in a dress. He seemed to understand her impulse toward self-preservation and the preservation of her family."

In a release, Moët & Chandon President & CEO Daniel Lalonde said, "Moët & Chandon, the most loved champagne since 1743, is a universal symbol of joie de vivre and success. This new campaign highlights a return to the immutable elegance and glamour that are inherent to both Moët and Scarlett."

GLEE's gay angel post.

The award ceremony is upon us, Gleeks! We had a chance to chat with almost everyone from the Glee cast at the TCAs on January 13 — including Chris Colfer (Kurt)! Read on for how Chris feels about being a Warbler, what’s in store for his character’s love life, and maybe most importantly: What he’s wearing to the Globes!

Broken Social Scene Plan Live Concert Webcast

There could be any number of reasons why you can't attend Broken Social Scene's show January 18 at NYC's Terminal 5: you don't have the scratch for tickets, you have other plans that night, or, uh, you aren't going to be anywhere near New York City. Whatever the excuse, BSS are making it a little easier for everyone to catch the show, as they recently announced via Twitter that the concert will be streamed in its entirety on the Bowery Presents' YouTube channel, starting at 9 p.m. EST.


'Spider-Man' Broadway show pushed back for the fourth time

The opening of "Spider-Man," the $65 million mishap-prone Broadway show, has been delayed yet again.

Curtains will rise on March 15, more than a month after the show's previously scheduled opening of Feb. 7, producers announced Thursday night.

Spiderman "is ten-times more complicated to tech than anything else, and the preview schedule allows for only very limited rehearsal time (twelve hours per week)," said Michael Cohl, co-producer of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark."

"We simply need more time to fully execute the creative team's vision before freezing the show."

The show - the most expensive production in Broadway history - has been dogged by controversy from the start. Four actors have been injured in the death-defying musical, and the opening date has now been postponed a total of four times.

The show, directed by director Julie Taymor, took another hit this month when actress Natalie Mendoza abruptly dropped out after suffering a concussion.

Mendoza's departure was announced days after Spidey stunt-double Christopher Tierney fell 30 feet from a Broadway stage, suffering four broken ribs and three broken vertebrae and fracturing his scapula, elbow and head.

I keep hoping it gets a theatrical run, I need to see this mess.

Blind Item post

#1. Which A-List Oscar winner refuses to come out of the closet even though everyone in Hollywood already knows he is gay? The talented thespian says he needs to keep his sexuality a secret to make his straight characters more believable, but his friends say he is really just afraid of losing primo leading roles.

‘Sherlock Holmes’ 2: Robert Downey Jr.’s ‘recovery group’ idea for sequel survivors

On a frigid November morning, as steam rises from train engines burning fiery coal in a century-old rail depot, Sherlock Holmes is in trouble. Blood on the side of his face, he’s fleeing the staccato rat-tat-tat of 19th century gunfire. Fortunately, his loyal friend Dr. Watson is at his side, as is a rifle-toting gypsy. Outside the depot, Watson and Holmes fumble with their guns to get a bead on their assailants, but the gypsy woman, Sim, beats them to it. She confidently cocks her rifle. Boom! A man falls dead. On beat, Watson and Holmes look at each other with surprise.

Thoughts on the sequel, ONTD? I for one am looking forward to less Irene Adler and some fun action sequences. And RDJ. And is that a Sherlock tag I see? Nice.

Oprah Reveals Biggest Failure

CNN released a preview clip of Piers Morgan's upcoming interview with Oprah. In it, Morgan asked Oprah what the biggest failure in her life had been.

Oprah said that her biggest failure was the 1998 adaptation of Toni Morrison's "Beloved," which she produced and starred in. She said that its failure at the box office "sent me into a massive, depressive, macaroni and cheese eating tailspin."

It was, she told Morgan, "the only time in my life I was ever depressed. And I recognized, 'I am depressed'...where you feel like you're behind a veil."

Oprah also told Morgan the lessons she learned from the depression.

Are you sure that was your biggest failure, Oprah?

Kanye West, Jay-Z Sparks Deeper Illuminati Conversation With Latest Album Artwork

Hosted by imgur.com

Jay-Z and Kanye West are probably somewhere sharing a hearty laugh about the increased “devil” chatter based on the artwork from their upcoming joint album. West recently revealed the piece on Twitter, and immediately message boards around the world began to light up with endless “see I told you they worshipped the devil” banter.

Even rolling out wondered if these two successful artists could actually be part of some New World order determined to control the world through their power and influence (read here). While we found it hard to believe that two rappers would be given access to a group likely composed of rich, old billionaires (if it even exists), one does have to wonder why they continue to open themselves up for this type of ridiculous conversation.

Smart money says that they enjoy it. And while we await the Jan. 11 drop of their first single, let the conversation begin on what HAM stands for on their album cover. Here are some of our guesses.

Hail All Mighty

Humans and Monsters

Haters Are Mad

Hov and Me

Hov Ate McDonald’s

Hot A-- Midgets

Happy and Merry

You give it a try. Is this artwork or devil worship? Or is does the fanatical side of hip-hop culture need to sit down and relax? You be the judge. –djr

Um. We all know who the true leader of Illuminati is:

See how she does a triangle and not a cross? ILLUMINATI.

The Office's Big Goodbye Is Sooner Than You Think

Just when you thought you’d heard everything about The Office‘s farewell storyline for Steve Carell (and thus Michael Scott), this bit of news comes bounding in: Carell’s final appearance on the beloved NBC comedy will air well before this season itself ends.

“Steve is leaving earlier than the [season finale],” reveals executive producer Greg Daniels, who expects to pen Carell’s swan song himself. Specifically, he says, “The big ‘Goodbye, Steve’ thing will be before [May] sweeps.”

Given the timing of Carell’s exit, what will the final weeks of this season then be about? “Our basic plan,” Daniels says, “is to see the jockeying and interviewing [for Michael's job], and not have that happen off-camera and suddenly present America with the choice. We’d rather play out the stories of the various characters who want that seat, and show them fight for it.”
