I have prepped and begun putting together my first batch of early Oscar predictions for the Best Actress category and what do you know, there's Meryl Streep again, this time starring in Hope Springs (previously known as Great Hope Springs) alongside Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carell. And today I have the first four pictures from the film to share with you.

Prime-Time Property

As one grows intimate with a TV series, it’s common that many lingering questions may arise. Has Breaking Bad’s Walter White ever experimented with boxers? How often does Bates have to sit down because his leg hurts? And most famously, how can Carrie Bradshaw afford her fabulous Upper East Side apartment on the salary of a weekly relationship columnist? Some television quandaries may never be answered. But fortunately—with the help of Shark Tank real-estate expert Barbara Corcoran—those of residential verisimilitude can. Herewith, a thorough analysis of television’s most ambiguously priced homes to put your renter’s insecurities to rest.

Sex and the City (1998–2004)

The unicorn of New York City real estate, Carrie Bradshaw’s fantastic one-bed/one-bath brownstone apartment at 245 East 73rd Street on the Upper East Side continues to baffle the many writerly folk sharing lofts in Brooklyn (see also: Girls). Rival only to Rachel Green and Monica Geller’s monstrous downtown digs, the Bradshaw palace is actually located at 66 Perry Street in the West Village. According to Corcoran, the rent for the fictional chez Bradshaw would be around $2,800 a month. But would she live there? “No way,” says Corcoran. “All those gals look at the Upper East Side as bad as moving to Connecticut.” Though the actual location of the apartment is a more realistic fit for our fashionista, there’s still the issue of cost. Says Corcoran: “66 Perry Street is now on the market for $9,650,000—hardly something a newspaper columnist could even afford to sit on, never mind own.”

Simpson's Post!

Jessica Simpson to give birth by C-Section

Jessica Simpson reportedly wants to give birth by caesarean section because she is terrified of pain.

The 31-year-old 'Fashion Star' mentor is due to welcome her first child with fiancé Eric Johnson any day now, and has apparently decided last minute she is too scared to push.

The singer-turned-fashion mogul had planned to have a live-in nurse at her Beverly Hills mansion and a luxury birthing suite reserved at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, but after trying and failing to conquer her fears, she is said to have changed her mind about the method of her daughter's delivery.

A source told In Touch Weekly: ''The thought of going into labor scared the bejeezus out of her. She was so anxious, she was even breaking into cold sweats at night.

''Jessica has no tolerance for pain. She even turned to hypnotherapy to calm her fears about it, but nothing was working.

''She desperately wanted to experience the joy of a natural birth, but decided to go with what made the most sense for her.''

Meanwhile, father-to-be Eric will be on hand to support her through the process.

The source added: ''Eric is a calming force for Jessica. Eric is so excited about the birth.''

Is Jessica Simpson in the prego-homestretch?

Jessica Simpson waited in a Range Rover today (April 18th) while mom Tina Simpson headed into a Los Angeles Chili’s to pick up take-out.  Reports are buzzing about a rumor that Simpson might have already had her baby girl, and is just keeping a low profile…just cause.  There are also reports that Simpson is opting for a C-section because she’s terrified of the pain that comes with childbirth.

”The thought of going into labor scared the bejeezus out of her,” a source allegedly told In Touch.  ”She was so anxious, she was even breaking into cold sweats at night.  Jessica has no tolerance for pain. She even turned to hypnotherapy to calm her fears about it, but nothing was working.

“She desperately wanted to experience the joy of a natural birth, but decided to go with what made the most sense for her.”

From these photos, we can’t tell if Simpson has birthed the babe.

Jessica Alba "can't wait" to meet Jessica Simpson's Baby

She said of the 'Fashion Star' mentor: “She’s so sweet! [Her sister] Ashlee and I had already had babies. [Now,] we [can] talk shop about all the baby stuff and the different stuff we’ve learned … I can’t wait to see [Jessica’s] baby!”

But as far as her own little family is concerned, the 30-year-old insists she is done baby-making for now.

She told Access Hollywood: “I’m happy with my two girls … down the road in five or 10 years, who knows, but for right now, I’m good.”

Having just launched a non-toxic baby product website called Honest.com, Jessica wants to devote a bit of time to getting the business off the ground and to re-visiting her acting career.

She said of the website: “This is my third baby. I have actively gotten back into acting. I did my first movie since I had Haven. So that was really fun and exciting.

“I actually got more sleep in that one week than I’ve had in seven-and-a-half months,” she said with a laugh.

Ashlee Simpson and Bronx visit NYC, indicating Jessica Simpson’s due date is likely not imminent

It looks like the world will have to wait a little longer for the arrival of Jessica Simpson's baby. Earlier today, Ashlee Simpson, younger sister of the "Fashion Star" mentor, touched down in New York City with her 3-year-old son, Bronx Wentz. They are in the Big Apple for a visit — perhaps to spend time with Ashlee's boyfriend "Boardwalk Empire" star Vincent Piazza, who resides there — making it seem highly unlikely that her famous sister will be giving birth anytime soon.

Ashlee, 27, and her curly-haired cutie were all smiles after their cross-country flight. In the series of photos of the twosome, they were dressed in color-coordinated outfits — mostly darker hues of black and gray — and Bronx, whose dad is Ashlee's ex-husband Pete Wentz, clutched a Lego toy. Later, he rested his head on her shoulder for a nap.

In February during New York Fashion Week, Ashlee and Piazza, who have been dating since last year, gave their first joint interview. He said that there's nothing better than when she visits him in the Big Apple. "I love when we get to spend time in New York together," he told reporters. "It's where I'm from so we always have a good time." Their idea of a perfect night? They like to "hang at home and cook," she said. He called her "my sous chef" and said their favorite meals to make are "fish or pasta or something, steaks." She gushed: "He's amazing."

Zefron endorsing clothes, should be naked instead

With so many “it” girls and boys coming in and out of the scene, it takes a whole lot of talent, discipline and good people surrounding you to be more than just a flash in the pan. Growing up is difficult enough, so throwing in a few million pairs of eyes watching you do it sounds like a recipe for disaster.

"Think Like A Man" #1 at Box Office

Once again, Hollywood underestimated a majority black cast. "Think Like A Man" had a production budget of only $12 - $13 million, which is technically an independent film's budget. On Friday alone, it already made back its money grossing an estimated $12 million in only 2,017 theaters, whereas "The Lucky One" is playing in 3115 theaters.

"Think Like A Man" Surprising #1

Big online ticket seller Fandango called this contest early when it reported that sleeper Think Like A Man based on the bestselling book by TV/radio comedian Steve Harvey was its top-selling movie — representing a healthy 42% of Thursday’s sales. This Screen Gems/Sony Pictures’ urban comedy aimed squarely at African-Americans ages 13 to 49 is playing in only 2,017 locations. But it’s looking like $12M for today and an unexpectedly large $30M for the weekend with an ‘A’ CinemaScore from audiences (‘A+’ Males, ‘A’ Females, ‘A+’ under age 25, ‘A’ every other category). Think Like A Man is off to an excellent start. At this time it looks very similar to Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married?” a rival studio exec told me today. That’s far more than the $17M which Sony was predicting. “The movie had a negative cost between $12M-$13M so we’re thrilled,” a Sony exec emails me. “Any weekend where you make back the negative cost in the first weekend is a good weekend in our books.”

Warner Bros’ romantic drama from Nicholas Sparks, The Lucky One starring Zac Efron, is looking like $9.0M today to overperform for $25M weekend playing in 3,115 theaters. It received a ‘B+’ CinemaScore from audiences.

I'm especially happy for the actresses (Gabrielle Union, Taraji P. Henson, Regina Hall, and Meagan Good) who are undervalued by Hollywood.

No, it's NOT a Tyler Perry film.

Poet Staceyann Chin: why chasing straight women still thrills me

They take ages to seduce, they're rubbish in bed – and then they go back to their boyfriends. But Staceyann Chin still can't resist turning a straight woman's head
There may be a thousand reasons why lesbians love the thrill of a straight girl. Maybe women who chase women possess the same rabid ego we despise in straight men, the same ego that makes a person go giddy at the thought of being "the first" for the straight girl in question. The heterosexual terrain of her flesh, untouched by other dyke hands, smacks of the virgin narrative. Who wouldn't want to be "the first"? Who doesn't like what feels like a conquest? A win?
Maybe it is the thrill of conversion.Who is to say such conquests were not sleeper-lesbians, just waiting for the right moment to awaken? I suppose, though, through the right lens, the process could be described as evangelical, this business of meeting, and courting and having a woman decide to jump the heterosexual ship to be with you.You are the chosen one, the messiah, the mandate that pulls her, magnetic, toward her most hidden desires.
Never, ever overtly refer to the electricity crackling between the two of you. Courting the bi-curious requires the skill of restraint. There is a sort of informal manual for lesbian chasing not-so-straight. And the first rule is, you have to be platonic first. Girls who are not-so-straight but identify as straight – even when they admit to being attracted to women – don't want that interest to seem conscious. It's always better if it seems like an impulsive adventure, a thing that just happened. Which means you always begin as nothing more than a friend. No compliments, no kissing, no holding hands, no longing looks. No I miss you phone calls. No yearning. Just casual chitchat girly-girl conversations. You should laugh when she confides in having a crush on some boy. Offer advice on what she should wear when she goes to see him. Be supportive of her relationship. Become her friend, first. Work very hard at being her very best friend. Always remember, you're only her friend. You are not allowed to bend that rule for at least three months.

Bryan Fuller Interested In New ‘Star Trek’ TV Series

Even though his hands are plenty busy working on the Munsters reboot titled Mockingbird Lane, and now that his plans for the Hannibal television series have revealed an ambitious seven-year storyline, one would think Bryan Fuller would have little time to ponder a new Star Trek television series.

Apparently, that’s not the case.

In praise of… Cate Blanchett

Queen Cate delivers a tour de force performance in Gross und Klein

How best to describe Cate Blanchett’s characterisation of Lotte in Botho Strauss’s Gross und Klein? Gutsy and incandescent spring to mind. In a demanding and difficult role – to which she commits heart, body and soul – she astonishes with a virtuoso performance of eccentric ardour. It’s nothing short of a career triumph.

Success on the screen offers no guarantee of brilliance on the boards. Some actors can command both media. Others struggle to make the leap from one to the other. Cate Blanchett unquestionably belongs in the first category. Anyone who can play both Elizabeth I and Bob Dylan in the movies can obviously do versatile. But the range of Blanchett's performance in Big and Small, her first appearance on the London stage for 12 years, is still breathtaking. She is on the stage almost throughout the two and a half hours of Botho Strauss's play, as her generous-hearted but ineffectual character Lotte struggles repeatedly to connect with the people around her. Lotte passes through an indifferent world almost unnoticed. But Blanchett's stage presence in the role is compelling, as she deploys every register, gesture and movement to give the kind of once-in-a-generation stage masterclass that conjures up memories of Vanessa Redgrave in her prime.

Krysten Ritter News Roundup

Krysten Ritter, 'The B---- in Apt 23,' is One of TV's First 21st Century Chicks

With the major exception of The Good Wife (CBS), there's really not much that piques my interest on network television these days. Indeed, it increasingly seems as if everything and everyone with any originality or daring has migrated to cable. But, that being said, there is one new network show that, I must confess, has me a little excited: Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, which debuts tonight at 9:30, right after Modern Family. yea, sorry, this is a little old, lol Why? In part because of the unusual title; in part because it has been endlessly promoted on ABC, its affiliated channels (ESPN, etc.), and in movie theater promos; and in part because it is attempting the tongue-in-cheek feat of having James Van Der Beek, the forgotten Dawson's Creek (WB) alum (as in not Katie HolmesMichelle Williams, or Joshua Jackson), portray -- you guessed it -- James Van Der Beek.

But the show's biggest draw for me, far and away, is the fact that it stars Krysten Ritter, the 30-year-old actress who I first noticed during season two ofBreaking Bad (AMC),

Krysten Ritter: Don't Trust the B---- on United Flight 841

Krysten Ritter was involved in a nasty verbal clash with a male flight attendant Friday that left her fighting back tears ... witnesses aboard the flight tell TMZ.

According to the witnesses, Ritter was on a flight from NYC to LA that was experiencing severe turbulence. We're told at one point Ritter -- whose show "Don't Trust The B---- in Apt 23" premiered this week -- got up when the "fasten seatbelt" sign was on ... and she was immediately confronted by a male flight attendant. 

Our sources say the flight attendant was "very aggressive" and yelled at her to sit back down. We're told Ritter was so distraught by the confrontation, she was on the verge of a tearfest.

According to our sources, the supervising flight attendant got wind of what went down and spoke with Krysten. We're told that flight attendant apologized and told Krysten she felt the male flight attendant was out of line and that disciplinary action would most likely be taken. 

We spoke with Krysten once she landed -- take a look.

Krysten Ritter Drops by "Jimmy Kimmel Live"

Taking care of some media duties, Krysten Ritter was spotted at "Jimmy Kimmel Live" studios in Hollywood last night (April 16).

The "Breaking Bad" starlet was all smiles as she plugged her brand new show, "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23."

Kimmel also inquired as to Ms. Ritter's upbringing, which opened up a whole new realm of down-home discussion.

Krysten shared, "I'm originally from this tiny little town in Pennsylvania called Shickshinny -- I didn't make that up -- and I'm from a beef farm." 

"I wanted a horse, but my stepfather says that they are 'hayburners,' so I wasn't allowed to have one... I did have a cow that I taught how to ride. I was sort of a town oddity."

Josh Hutcherson Talks 'Detention' & Kissing Jennifer Lawrence

Josh Hutcherson is a household name thanks to a little movie called The Hunger Games, but the 19-year-old actor's rise to the top didn't come out of nowhere. While other kids his age were playing little league, Hutcherson was honing his skils in films like The Polar Express, Bridge to Terabithia, and The Kids Are All Right.

His latest indie flick, Detention, is a high-energy, genre-bending thriller that mixes together elements of The Breakfast Club, Back to the Future, and Scream to create something wholly unique and a little undefinable. Hutcherson, who co-executive produced the movie, plays Clapton Davis, a music-obsessed skateboarding teen with a '90s pop culture reference for every occasion.

Zimbio recently chatted with Josh about Detention, what he wants to do next as an actor, and whether he thinks he and Jennifer Lawrence have a chance to steal this year's Best Kiss trophy away from Robsten at the MTV Movie Awards.

"The funny thing is… I think I was the first to say that when we shot the pilot," revealed the 41-year-old actor in a video interview from London. "When I put the armour on for the first time, I said, 'That's Prince Charming from Shrek'."

Dance Rap? Drake Isn't Here For That...And He Talks About His Emotions Again

Drake is not here for that David Guetta, Pitbull-type of dance rap music. The rapper slammed the latest trend in the latest issue of NME and also discussed drunk dialing, sex tapes and defended his making emotional rap.

“For me the David Guetta stuff doesn’t work,” Drake explains. “I don’t really wanna go there. There’s other artists, that’s their sound. They feel in order to thrive internationally that they gotta do straightforward, four on the floor, David Guetta, Pitbull music.”

Drizzy continues, “For me, I’d rather go to somebody like [Take Care producer] Jamie xx and tell him ‘look I really wanna turn the club upside down, but I wanna do it with integrity, with soul.’”

So I guess we won’t be hearing a Drizzy-Guetta collaboration anytime soon.

Rihanna goes on date with woman

Rihanna headed out on a date last night. But while the "Umbrella" singer has dated singer Chris Brown and baseball star Matt Kemp in the past, last night she was seen holding hands with a woman.
"I'm on my first date in almost 2 yearz," the Barbadian pop star tweeted yesterday. "#datenight my lover for the night @mforde11."

Rihanna referred to her longtime friend, Melissa Forde, who has been rumored in the past to be the singer's lover. The two were spotted out last night, getting dinner at Il Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi in Malibu before heading out to the Roxbury nightclub in Hollywood. The pair were photographed holding hands as they left the restaurant. While Rihanna wore a loose-fitting white dress, with a red garter belt underneath, Forde was dressed in a tiny black mini-skirt.

"2night is gon' be a good one, I could feel it!" Rihanna wrote on the micro-blogging site. She also posted a photo of herself and Forde. In the image, taken in a dark room, the two women's faces are barely discernable. Rihanna smiles wide.
Radar reports that Rihanna and Forde have matching tattoos that read, "Never a failure, always a lesson."

While it's unclear how close they are, Rihanna has flirtily hinted that the two hook-up. On New Year's Eve, she wrote on Twitter, "Fyi, we gotta find me somebody to kiss @ midnight by next NYE!!!! Melissa didn’t cut it for me lastnt."

Questions about Rihanna's sexuality have come up before. In January, reports surfaced that a model named Natajah Burton was writing a book about her affair with the singer.

And while Rihanna has not come out as bisexual, she has teased that she plays for both teams. Not only do the lyrics to her song "Te Amo" hint at Sapphic impulses, but she has also been known to flirt with rapper Nicki Minaj over Twitter. Last year, Rihanna tweeted, "Me and Nikki in our new crib, lol! Getting busy on the set of FLY!!! Its so hard to keep my hands off!"
Minaj responded, "@rihanna lol. If we're gonna liv 2gthr and hook up u gotta learn how 2 spell my name!"



Kimmy Blanco Is Back: Lil Kim Plans ‘Return of The Queen Bee’ Summer Tour

There’s been some tumultuous times for Lil Kim these past couple of years since Nicki Minaj took over the female rapper scene. They had their infamous beef during Lil Kim‘s resurgence with the infamous Black Friday mixtape, and after all of that died down it looks as if they’ve both found their own space in the music biz (Kim's space has always been there though but okay....).

Lil Kim has pretty much stopped responding to all sorts of ‘beef’ inquiries and Nicki has somewhat laid off of the cheap shots toward the Bella Mafia Queen Bee (O rly?). No matter what has gone on, Kim’s fans have stayed tried and true and she’s responded to their every form of encouragement.

Now, she’s coming back strong with her “Return of The Queen Bee” tour, where she will be making her across the US this Summer. Paired up with Live Nation, the artist is set to be kicking things off as of June 1st in Cincinnati.

Lil Kim just became a God Mother recently to a beautiful baby girl, so it’s likely she’ll be getting to enjoy these first few months enjoying her role in this new little baby girl’s life. Check out Live Nation for more dates as they become available, with tickets starting at around $40.00.

The revelation that Francis Lawrence will be taking over the director’s chair on Catching Fire does not seem to be filling Hunger Games fans with much excitement..

At his best, his movies have achieved a giddily outré sensibility — a sensibility which, personally, I would welcome wholeheartedly after the somewhat colorless franchise-utiliarian aesthetic of the first Hunger Games. Here are four ways I think Francis Lawrence can make Catching Fire even better than the first movie:

Robin Gibb wakes from coma!!!

LONDON—Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb has woken from a coma more than a week after he lost consciousness and has attempted to communicate with family members at his hospital bedside, the BBC reported on Saturday.

Gibb, 62, has begun to show signs of recovery and has been able to nod and communicate with his family, spokesman Doug Wright was quoted as saying by the BBC. Wright could not immediately be reached to confirm the report.

The singer contracted pneumonia and fell into a coma at a central London hospital earlier this month. He had been receiving treatment for colon and liver cancer.

He founded the Bee Gees with his twin brother Maurice and older brother Barry in the late 1950s. They have sold an estimated 200 million records during a career spanning more than 50 years.

The group helped to define the disco sound of the 1970s with a string of hits, including “Stayin’ Alive,” “Night Fever” and “Jive Talkin’.” Their distinctive sound was characterized by falsetto vocals, tight harmonies and lush orchestration.


This is good news!!! Hope he continues to get better! :D
