Netflix's Original Content VP on Development Plans, Pilots, Late-Night and Rival HBO (Q&A)


"Orange Is the New Black" actress Taylor Schilling, Netflix Vice President of Original Content Cindy Holland, and Author Piper Kerman attend the show's New York premiere in 2013.

Cindy Holland, Netflix's head of original content, recently gave a rare interview to The Hollywood Reporter to discuss how her small team helps new series come to fruition.

Holland, who oversees 16 employees and a growing portion of Netflix's $3 billion programming budget, "has been tasked with building the company's original series business, which began in 2011 with a $100 million, 26-episode bet on 'House of Cards,'" according to THR.

Anthony Stewart Head Still Wants to Do a Buffy Spinoff About Giles—Can This Please Happen?


If Anthony Stewart Head has his way, you haven't seen the last of Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Rupert Giles.

Head, who played Buffy Summers' (Sarah Michelle Gellar) Watcher and mentor on the beloved Buffy the Vampire Slayer, had been at the center of a Ripper spinoff of sorts for years now that would follow Giles being, well, pretty flippin' badass. But sadly, nothing ever came together. Yet Head hasn't given up hope of reuniting with Joss Whedon for the project.

James Rodríguez, Neymar, Messi and the Rebirth of the South American No. 10

Argentina captain Lionel Messi, Colombia star James Rodriguez and the symbol of Brazilian football, Neymar, have been wowing audiences from across the world with their inspired World Cup performances. More than that, however, the trio provide a perfect example of how the No. 10 position in South American football has not become obsolete, but rather evolved to fit the rigours of the modern game.

Phone-hacking trial was officially about crime; but in reality, it was about power

This was no ordinary trial.

It was unusual in its sheer scale: more than three years of police work; 42,000 pages of crown evidence; seven months of hearings; up to 18 barristers in court at any one time; 12 defendants facing allegations of crime spreading back over a decade.

But what made it most unusual was what it represented. First, this was a long-delayed showdown between the criminal justice system and parts of Fleet Street, in which the reputations of both was at stake. Beyond that, however, this was a trial by proxy, in which Rebekah Brooks stood in the dock on behalf of a media mogul and Andy Coulson acted as avatar for the prime minister, with the reputations of Rupert Murdoch and David Cameron equally in jeopardy. Officially, the trial was all about crime; in reality, it was all about power.

Luis Suárez banned for four months for biting opponent in World Cup clash

Fifa’s independent disciplinary committee has banned Luis Suárez from all football-related activity for four months after he was seen biting Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini.

The decision means the Liverpool striker, who has also been fined £66,000, will miss the rest of Uruguay’s World Cup campaign and the start of the domestic season. He is banned from Uruguay’s next nine international matches in total, and from entering any stadium during this period.

Speaking before the verdict was announced, Suárez’s lawyer, Alejandro Balbi, claimed there was a European campaign against the Liverpool striker being led by England and Italy, while Uruguay’s FA suggested that pictures of teeth-marks on Chiellini’s shoulder were digitally altered.

Balbi told Uruguayan radio: “We don’t have any doubts that this has happened because it’s Suárez involved and secondly because Italy have been eliminated. There’s a lot of pressure from England and Italy. We’re convinced that it was an absolutely casual play, because if Chiellini can show a scratch on one shoulder, Suarez can show a bruised and an almost closed eye.”

Uruguay won the Group D encounter in Natal 1-0 to secure a last-16 match against Colombia. Suárez defended himself on Uruguayan television after the incident, saying: “These situations happen on the pitch, we were both just inside the area, he struck me in the chest with his shoulder and he hit me in the eye as well.”

Chiellini, however, insists that Suárez knew exactly what he was doing and was dismayed that he was not sent off for his apparent actions.

The defender told Rai TV: “It was ridiculous not to send Suarez off, it is clear, clear-cut and there was the obvious dive afterwards because he knew very well that he did something that he shouldn’t have done.”

David Beckham & Tom Cruise Reunited (Again), Becks Admits Naming His Son After Cruise

One of Hollywood's famous bromances appears to be going strong! Retired soccer star David Beckham, 39, and Tom Cruise, 51, recently hung out and had drinks at The Cow pub in London, located near the posh neighborhood of Notting Hill. Several patrons photographed the two, who were engrossed in conversation and appeared to pay no attention a bit of drama seemingly spurred by their presence, E! News has learned.

Cruise and Beckham sat on the same side in a corner table. They appeared to share a bottle of red wine, while David also had a pint of what looks like Guinness beer and Tom had a glass of water with a lemon wedge. A similar drink rests on the opposite side of the table. A source told E! News that the two drank red wine by themselves and no security guards or other members of a potential entourage were spotted.

Cruise, who is preparing to film Mission: Impossible 5 in London, and Beckham met in the early 2000s and have often hung out together, mainly with their families. Sports Illustrated journalist Grant Wahl said in his 2009 book, The Beckham Experiment: How the World's Most Famous Athlete Tried to Conquer America, that David told him that the actor inspired the name of his and Victoria's youngest son Cruz, who was born in 2005.

"I must admit, when we met Tom, I remember turning around to Victoria and saying, 'Cruise is a great name, but we could spell it different,'" the writer quoted David as saying. "And also living in Spain, Cruz spelled the way it is is Spanish. So that's why we got it."

Cara Delevingne Falls Asleep During Her Vogue Interview—Twice! Then Angrily Tweets About It

Looks like someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Vogue called out supermodel Cara Delevingne for apparently falling asleep multiple times during her interview with the fashion magazine. And the 21-year-old British beauty arrived late, to boot!

The author of the Vogue article, Plum Sykes, wrote "Dear reader, to misquote Oscar Wilde, can I say that to oversleep once for a Vogue interview may be regarded as a misfortune, but to oversleep twice looks like carelessness?"Plum also questioned photographer Tim Walker, who has shot Cara many times, and he corroborated. "Every shoot I've done with her, she's fallen asleep ... She slept for seven hours on one Mulberry shoot."

And as soon as Cara read what was written about her in Vogue, she took to Twitter to set the record straight on her reputation as a snoozing sleeping beauty. "Why do people in the industry lie so much???? They would rather see you fail than succeed. What happened to supporting each other," she wrote.

Someone Asked Richard Armitage About Those Rumors (And "The Crucible")

Richard Armitage, interview: 'I think I'm quite a frightening person'

The star of The Hobbit is taking on The Crucible at the Old Vic. 'It's a big mountain to climb,' he tells Chris Harvey


Richard Armitage arrives in the tiny, cluttered stage manager’s office of The Old Vic straight from rehearsals for Arthur Miller’s The Crucible. He’s bearded and dressed in thick shapeless trousers, heavy boots, and a rough collarless cotton shirt open at the neck to reveal a broad chest. He’s a tall and imposing physical presence. Anyone who knew the 42 year-old only as the dwarf Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit films might have quite a shock. Television viewers who associate him with double agent Lucas North in Spooks, nasty Guy of Gisborne in Robin Hood, or the character based on SAS man Andy McNab in Sky One’s Strike Back would know different.

Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna Hit Kickstarter to Bring Ambulante Project to California

Mexican actor-director-producers Gael Garcíá Bernal and Diego Luna are seeking to bring their traveling documentary festival, Ambulante, to the U.S.--and they're crowd-sourcing funds on Kickstarter to help them do it.

Ambulante began 10 years ago as a documentary festival that would move around Mexico, bringing new audiences together in public spaces to share in the experience of watching new films. According to Ambulante, the group's mission is to "reach[] areas with limited access to film to diversify and democratize documentary culture." Eventually, the festival's creators hope to set up Ambulantes globally, each run by the local community and responding to the needs of the region.

First, though, they have their sights on California, with the help of the Ford Foundation. From September 21 to October 4, Ambulante plans to screen one documentary per night in different neighborhoods in the greater Los Angeles area, all for free. Past documentaries that Ambulante has screened include "Which Way Home," "Searching for Sugar Man," "El Árbol" and "Pina."

Over the next month, Bernal and Luna hope to raise $52,780. So far, they're a little bit of the way past $2,500.

We're taken into a special room far beneath the BBC and given the ancient and special runes that spell his true and awful name. We're commanded never to reveal what we have learned, because then the show would have to be renamed Mildred. Oh, bugger."

Sean Lennon: “I Was Terrified Of Being Kidnapped.”


Entertaining MOJO in central London, Lennon and Kemp Muhl stress their artistic relationship has few parallels to John and Yoko’s controversial union as man and woman, musicians and philosophers. “They didn’t collaborate,” points out Lennon. “My mum refused to write with my dad, even though I think he wanted to.” Lennon tackles the subject on Midnight Sun, the second album by The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger, the neo-psych folk-rock duo he formed in 2009 with multi-instrumentalist and girlfriend Charlotte Kemp Muhl. The track Poor Paul Getty relives the tale of the titular American oil heir who in 1973 was kidnapped in Rome and subsequently had his ear cut off by his captors. “It was the bogey-man story,” says Lennon. “The song isn’t jokey at all.”

“They inspired each other but were fiercely independent,” adds Kemp Muhl. “[Sean] and I are more counterpoints to each other. Very few empowered couples work together as peers.”

In our exclusive interview, Lennon also discusses his complex working relationship with mum Yoko Ono (whose last two albums he produced), his interest in West Coast ’70s psychedelic guru Father Yod and gradually emerging from his father’s lengthy shadow. “Being John’s boy was very intimidating,” he admits. “It’s taken me longer than other people to feel comfortable in my own shoes… and Char[lotte] has been a big part of that.”

Sky Ferreira posts a rant about Terry Richardson + Lady Gaga´s video.

"As someone who has worked very closely with Terry Richardson on many many many occasions since I was 17 years old I would like to say... from my OWN personal experience: I have never been forced or manipulated into anything. I made a music video with him and I have never felt uncomfortable with Terry & had 99 percent of the creative control. This was before I was "famous". Allegations are one thing but completely blaming the director isn't fair aka the Lady Gaga video. It doesn't matter if you want to be a "role model" or not, it's your responsibility to be AWARE of what you're doing."

Zendaya: On the Verge of a Takeover

Zendaya couldn’t control her laughter.

Her stylist made a makeshift turban out of the person’s neck scarf.

Zendaya found herself amused by the random act and joked that her stylist would borrow a stranger’s shoes, car, or dog in order to get the perfect look.

“Hey, you don’t need your dog do you? If not, [Luxury Law] would just borrow him for a second,” Zendaya joked as a woman walked past the studio with her puppy in tow.

Neymar under investigation for his chonies


If there's one thing that the governing body cares above all else, it's the protection of its high-paying sponsors' exclusivity. After all, you don't become a non-profit organization with a rainy day fund of $1.4 billion in cash by being concerned with players biting each other. You do it by making sure players don't have underpants made by non-FIFA sponsors peeking out of their shorts.

According to UOL, the underwear alarm went off at FIFA headquarters when Neymar's were partially exposed after he swapped shirts following Brazil's 4-1 win over Cameroon. And if you think that this is all a big joke, consider that Denmark's Nicklas Bendtner was fined €100,000 ($125,797) by UEFA (European football's governing body) when he celebrated a goal by lifting up his shirt to reveal the name of a betting firm on the waistband of his underpants at Euro 2012. For the sake of comparison, the Croatian federation was fined less for its fans' combination of racial abuse aimed at opposing players and flare throwing at the same tournament.

This also isn't the first time Neymar's underwear has raised concerns from the football brand police. When a similar situation occurred while he played in a Champions League match for Barcelona two months ago, his press agent had to deny that it was an intentional marketing strategy.

So remember: You can never say that FIFA doesn't care. Because it does care very much about underwear. And money.

Grimes: Listen/DL to the song Rihanna turned down

The expression “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” feels especially apt in the case of Grimes’ rejected Rihanna track “Go,” which arrives today via 4AD and features “Phone Sex” collaborator Blood Diamonds. Grimes performed the track at the Governor’s Ball in June, but she debuted the recorded version today on Zane Lowe’s show on Radio 1 in the UK.

When the Montreal musician’s Visions came out in 2012, her circular throbbing arrangements were not only immediately accessible, but transcendentally and singularly jaw-dropping. Her eerie and largely unintelligible voice over subtly Satanic beats became a signature. But “Go” doesn’t stem from the comfortable niche Claire Boucher carved out for herself; the track begins with a vampiric harpsichord, introduces her emo vocals (which have never been clearer or stronger), then gnarls into an punishing dubstep climax unlike anything she’s ever done before. It’s Grimes’ first real club-ready work, but only for the kind of club where black-clad phantoms oscillate in a secret underground dungeon.

“Go” is expected to be on the Grimes’ as-yet-untitled, upcoming album, (even tho she tweeted it wasn't going to be on the new album) but Boucher wanted it out as soon as possible: “It’s our summer jam so we figured we should put it out cuz I am very bored of waiting to finish my album b4 releasing new music haha,” she said in the press release for the track.

RIAA Names Katy Perry Top Certified Digital Artist Of All Time

Katy Perry's come a long way. She's Kissed a Girl, gotten married, divorced, dyed her hair green and blue and somehow manages to pull it off, and ditched her eyebrows, which she may not have pulled off.

On Wednesday, she was crowned the new RIAA Gold & Platinum Program's top digital artist of all time with 72 million digital singles sold, which includes downloads and on-demand streams. That's 20 million more than any other artist.

"Katy Perry is a force to be reckoned with in music," said RIAA Chairman & CEO Cary Sherman during a ceremony at Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. "We are honored to recognize Katy as the most successful digital artist in Gold & Platinum Program history. She embodies all that makes a true global superstar: the musical talent, the extraordinary drive and genuine charisma, and an intrinsic connection with her fans. This award is a reflection of her deep commitment to those qualities and to her music, which has propelled her to this historic milestone. We congratulate Katy and her team on all her success."

Kesha Stuns On The Cover Of ‘Teen Vogue’, Opens Up About Her Eating Disorder And Rehab Stint


Kesha lands on the August cover of Teen Vogue looking almost unrecognizable with her largely make-up free face and pretty denim shirt. It really drives home the fact that the girl formerly known as K$ has really cleaned up her act — a process she details at length in the revealing interview, which covers her recent stint in rehab for an eating disorder.

“My eating disorder is something I’ve been struggling with for a while,” the “Timber” hitmaker admits. “I went to rehab for an eating disorder — nothing more and nothing less.” The impetus for her to check into Timberline Knolls (a Chicago-area facility) is also pretty telling. “Making my last record, Warrior, was a pretty miserable process, and it wore my spirit down,” she says. “I was fighting like hell to keep my whole irreverent essence and everything raw and visceral that I stand for in it, but in the end I was promoting something that wasn’t the animal I wanted it to be.”

On the bright side, Kesha reveals that she recorded 14 new songs during her rehabilitation and is looking forward to releasing an album more in tune with her personal aesthetic. I really loved Warrior but I’m happy the former-glitter princess is in a position to make the music she likes.

The One True War Doctor Remains Fantastic, Promises Five(ish) Doctors Sequel


Paul McGann has revealed that production is under way on a sequel to Doctor Who fan favourite The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot.

The spoof film aired on the BBC red button after the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special last November and followed fifth, sixth and seventh Doctors Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy as they attempted to score a role in the feature-length episode. Eighth Doctor McGann had a cameo in the comedy short alongside a string of familiar faces from Whovian history including Steven Moffat, Russell T Davies, David Tennant, Matt Smith, Olivia Colman and Sean Pertwee.

Speaking at the Cambridge Union Society, the Withnail and I actor announced that work had already begun on a follow-up, although – tantalisingly – provided no details of plot, casting or timings.

The 54-year-old actor also told students that the show's producers "missed a trick" by casting Peter Capaldi instead of a first female Time Lord. He named Tilda Swinton and Diana Quick as his favourite choices for the twelfth Doctor, asking the audience to imagine the skill they could bring to the portrayal of "one of the greatest characters ever written."

McGann played the Doctor in a 1996 TV film and has reprised the role in various audio plays as well as in The Night of the Doctor, a short but significant prequel to 50th anniversary special The Day of the Doctor, in which he regenerates into John Hurt's War Doctor.

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez ‘Caught Doing Lines’ Of Cocaine — On Tape! — At L.A. Club


Justin Bieber’s purported drug repertoire is apparently expanding from marijuana to cocaine, and he’s turned on again, off-again love Selena Gomez onto it as well, insiders tell InTouch.

“They have been partying nonstop, they clearly aren’t worried about their behavior,” a source told InTouch about the 20-year-old “Baby” singer and 21-year-old Wizards of Waverly Place star regarding their recent romantic renaissance, which has included late nights at Los Angeles hotspots such as Bootsy Bellows and 1Oak.

The insider went onto tell the magazine that a secret tape is circulating of the once-wholesome stars allegedly snorting the contraband at 1Oak on June 16, and that “someone’s trying to get paid for it.

june 16

“They get caught doing lines,” the insider said, noting that “the video is pretty dark and fuzzy.”

As we previously reported, on the following day, June 17, cops paid a visit to “Come And Get It” singer’s Hidden Hills, Calif. mansion after neighbors complained of loud noises, telling the starlet to keep the volumes down.

A source attributed the household hijinks to Bieber’s “bad influence,” as the performer infamously moved out of his Calabasas neighborhood earlier this year, after infuriating neighbors with late night parties, dangerous moves behind the wheel and an egging incident that he’s still on the hook for.

The Spring Breakers star’s family, based on the latest developments, are understandably “terrified it won’t end well,” a second source told the magazine.

“This time, they think Selena is going to have to hit rock bottom before she realizes Justin isn’t good for her,” the second source said. “She’s pretty much lost most of her friends and family because of this toxic relationship – and she still doesn’t care.

“This road she’s taking . . . it’s all just so scary.”

From brainstorming a list of potential candidates to whittle down to 100, writing up the entries and (my own solo mission) putting together the images this has been a real marathon. But when you look back through the list, notebook in hand to jot down your new reading list, I know it was worth it. To round things out we have the last of the genre books, mixed in with a couple that we couldn’t place in a single category. Enjoy!

Selena Gomez To Release Greatest Hits Album, Fires Her Month-Old Managers!

Last April HitsDailyDouble reported information about Selena Gomez’ contract status with Hollywood Records, and the changes in her managers/agents roster. Back then, the reliable music industry website asserted that Selena was out of contract with her label (supposedly ‘Stars Dance’ was her last album), and that she was seeking a new management team, which eventually came to be Direct Management, but to be more precise Steve Jensen and Martin Kirkup, employees of said company. This management is the same that manages Katy Perry, and this sparked the rumors Selena was soon to join Capitol Records.

Well, today, June 26, HitsDailyDouble has updated the information they have on the future of Selena Gomez. She has not signed a new label deal as she still had to release ONE MORE ALBUM with Hollywood Records. However, it seems the two parties have amicably reached an agreement for which Selena doesn't have to release an original full-length album with the label. Instead, Selena is confirmed to be releasing later in 2014 (expect it for the Christmas period) a GREATEST HITS album, that will included one or two brand new songs. But that's it. Once that album is released, Selena Gomez will become a free agent and will be able to do what she wants with her life.

HitsDailyDouble also reports today that Selena has FIRED Direct Management’s Steve Jensen and Martin Kirkup! Say what? Uh-huh, they have only lasted ONE MONTH with Selena. What happened? They don’t do their jobs well or what? Selena’s new manager (she's hired a new one already) is Aleen Kesheshian, who manages the careers of the likes of: Jennifer Aniston, Natalie Portman, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana and Laura Linney.

Selena is evidently changing labels too. Will she go to Capitol after all? After parting ways with Katy’s Direct Management it seems not, but who knows! Hopefully she doesn’t make the absurdity of singing with Epic.


Pop Music Emergency- Britney releasing new song over the summer?!


After a not so successful Britney Jean, we are getting some new music from Britney Spears this summer!

Britney Spears is ready to snap an Oscar cause she’s again recording for soundtrack. After Ooh La La for The Smurfs 2, she recorded a song for this year highly anticipated comedy Search Party. The film will hit theaters on September 12th. The film, from writer and director Scot Armstrong (Old School, The Hangover II), finds a group of old friends rallying to help their down-on-his-luck buddy reunite with a former-flame.

The song is called ALL THE WAY and is produced by Stargate, while it will be released as a single in mid-August. It will be also a physical CD single released through Universal which is responsible for The Pitch Perfect soundtrack, that went on to become the fastest-selling film soundtrack in digital music history, in addition to producing a Billboard Hot 100 top 10 single in Anna Kendrick’s Cups.

Others confirmed for the soundtrack album include Lil John, LMFAO and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

Ann Coulter: Growing Interest in Soccer a Sign of Nation's 'Moral Decay'

I've held off on writing about soccer for a decade — or about the length of the average soccer game — so as not to offend anyone. But enough is enough. Any growing interest in soccer can only be a sign of the nation's moral decay.

• Individual achievement is not a big factor in soccer. In a real sport, players fumble passes, throw bricks and drop fly balls — all in front of a crowd. When baseball players strike out, they're standing alone at the plate. But there's also individual glory in home runs, touchdowns and slam-dunks.

In soccer, the blame is dispersed and almost no one scores anyway. There are no heroes, no losers, no accountability, and no child's fragile self-esteem is bruised. There's a reason perpetually alarmed women are called "soccer moms," not "football moms."

Jimmy Savile raped corpses; made rings from their eyes; wheeled them around at night

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Jimmy Savile told hospital staff he interfered with patients' corpses, taking grotesque photographs and stealing glass eyes for jewellery, over two decades at the mortuary of Leeds general infirmary.

The late Top of the Pops presenter had free access to the mortuary from the late 1970s to the mid-1990s, an official investigation has found, concluding that Savile's interest in the deceased was "not within accepted boundaries".

One former Broadmoor nurse told investigators that Savile claimed to have performed sex acts on bodies and "mucked about" in the mortuary, posing in photographs with the deceased after placing them in lewd positions.

The former nurse said: "He [Savile] was saying that they used to put the bodies together, male and female, and he also said that they took photographs and also that he got involved in some of the photographs … I was a little bit upset because I had no concept, in those days, of necrophilia. Several of the Broadmoor patients would have been diagnosed with that, but I didn't fully understand what it meant, and partway through I just wandered off.

"[Savile] talked about gamaroosh ... It means oral sex ... that he [Savile], he would go down on them and gamaroosh and muck about."

Separately, the independent investigation was told that Savile had removed glass eyes from the bodies and used them as jewellery.

Former X Factor judge Tulisa appeared in court today for a hearing related to allegations that she arranged a drug deal.The former N-Dubz star, 25, is said to have been caught referring to cocaine as 'white sweets' during a newspaper sting.

Mad Men's Weiner defends Don Draper & Walter White

"I think Don's an Everyman, and Walter White has cancer, for god's sake. What exactly is it that they're doing that's so unpleasant? Murder makes you harder to root for, but I didn't see a lot of unjustified murder in Walter's life."
– Matthew Weiner, "Mad Men" creator/showrunner


["exit" as in endings, so spoilers obviously for BB's and hints on MM's.]
Q: When you're coming to the end of a show that has been as well received as your two shows have, how large does it loom in your thoughts?

VINCE GILLIGAN: Man, the last year and a half before the end of “Breaking Bad,” I couldn't sleep at night. Hopefully you're not having it as bad as I had it.

MATTHEW WEINER: Was it worse than the first year of the show?

GILLIGAN: Oh, yeah. Way worse.

WEINER: ‘Cause in terms of anxiety, that first year terrified me more than the ending of the show.

GILLIGAN: You know what, though? The first year for me, it was a little like having sex for the first time. I was like, “I'm just amazed that I'm doing this at all.”

Gilligan (L) and Weiner (R) photographed by Stephanie Diani for EmmyWrap

WEINER: There's a lot of pressure to not fail. And you killed it. You killed it.

GILLIGAN: Oh, I got lucky.

Everybody On RHONY Has Been Fired Except Ramona!

Housewives of New York … you’re fired! As the current season of the Real Housewives of New York continues to tank in the ratings, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that Bravo bosses have decided to axe the entire cast — except for Ramona Singer. In fact, sources tell Radar, auditions for new ladies are already underway!

“Bravo doesn’t want to cancel the series because New York is the unofficial capital of the United States,” an insider told Radar. “The amount of wealth concentrated into such a small area makes it a major draw.”

But the series sinking ratings are simply unacceptable, and so, “The entire current cast, including Sonja Morgan, Heather Thomas, Luann de Lesseps, and Carole Radzwill are all expected to get pinks slips,” the source said.

At this point, “Ramona will most likely be offered a contract to come back,” according to the source, “and Aviva Drescher could be offered a much smaller role, of series guest star.”

As for the new cast members, the insider explained, “Expect them to be over-the-top wealthy and very charismatic with multiple estates.”

Though the current series’ stars have plenty of drama in their personal lives — cheating scandals, bankruptcies, and boy toys – much of the major excitement has happened off-screen. As a result, viewers have been tuning out in increasing numbers since the first episode, which brought in a measly 1.33 million viewers — the lowest number since the show debuted.

Indeed, the episode that aired on June 17, garnered fewer than one million viewers for the first time since the series premiered in 2008, according to BravoRatings.com.

“The ladies just aren’t connecting with viewers and they need something major to happen to them,” a source previously told Radar.

the show is being beat out by loony toons in the ratings hunties. personally i would like ramona & heather to stay. fire aviva, carole & kristen. keep sonja & luann as friends of. find 3 new ladies (at least 2 of colour) to join the cast and eventually if the show picks up add more, think of it as starting RHONY over again.

Uruguayans react angrily as FIFA ban their hero Luis Suarez

Uruguayans reacted angrily on Thursday after FIFA suspended their star striker Luis Suarez for nine matches for biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini, with many slamming the ban as exaggerated, hypocritical, or even biased.

"They're acting as if he were a criminal, a terrorist," said Maria Cardozo, a 48 year-old administrative worker. "They're exaggerating the aggression although I do think it warranted some sort of punishment."

Suarez is synonymous with controversy in much of the world. He has twice before been banned for biting and had to sit out eight matches for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra
But in small, football-crazed Uruguay, the Liverpool forward is a major hero that his compatriots have passionately defended him.

Some were quickly calling foul on Thursday and blasting global soccer body FIFA's judgment, which leaves Uruguay without its main scorer against Colombia on Saturday in the first knockout round.

"I don't want to get into conspiracy theories, but it seems that FIFA isn't interested in letting small countries such as Uruguay advance," said 62-year-old lawyer Andres Ramirez.

How can people seriously defend this guy? They went easy on him; this sort of behavior warrants a two-year (and possibly lifetime) ban.

Dat Impact: Forget Porn, It's All About USA and Germany

USA vs Germany World Cup Match -- Porn Site Traffic Dips, Except For ...

A giant porn company suffered a seismic loss in business when the U.S. World Cup team triumphantly lost to Germany Thursday ... with a notable gay exception.

The folks over at Bang Bros -- who run sites like Bang Bus, AssParade and TugJobs -- tell TMZ their network of sites took a 33% hit during the big match

But for some reason ... its gay site, Gay Pawn, saw a rise in traffic ... to the tune of 23%.

Theories in the office:

-- It was a great 2-screen experience
-- The hot soccer players got people hot
-- Someone else controlled the TV set
-- The soccer players got the "curious" more curious
-- All that talk of headers ...

Not that there's anything wrong with any of our theories.

Matt Lauer Asks Sexist Question Of GM’s Female CEO

In December, General Motors (GM) named its first female CEO, Mary Barra. Barra is also the first woman to run a global car company. She is also a mother to two children.
In an live interview on the Today Show on Thursday morning, host Matt Lauer questioned whether that meant she could do a good job at both running the company and being a good mother:
LAUER: You’re a mom, I mentioned, two kids. You said in an interview not long ago that your kids told you they’re going to hold you accountable for one job and that is being a mom.
BARRA: Correct.
LAUER: Given the pressures of this job at General Motors, can you do both well?

Cam Gigandet Disses Former O.C. Costars Ben McKenzie, Mischa Barton, "Miserable" Cast

Welcome to the O.C., bitch. Or not. Cam Gigandet says he got a rather chilly reception when he joined the cast of Fox's hit series The O.C. back in 2005 -- and not just from fans who wanted Ben McKenzie's Ryan Atwood and Mischa Barton's Marissa Cooper to live happily ever after. The Burlesque star, 31, had some not-so-nice things to say about his former costars in a recent interview for Elle magazine's "Hot Guy/Cold Drink" feature.

Asked whether he stays in touch with anyone from the show, the Reckless actor replied, "No. Actually Ben McKenzie was kind of mean to me. I hadn't done anything at that point and he was a little bit of an ass." He added, "But I love him. I think he's a great actor and I love Southland." (McKenzie's TNT show was canceled in May 2013.)

The heartthrob also threw some shade at Barton, 28, who played a love interest for his character, Kevin Volchok. Marissa's relationship with Volchok was a major story line and in fact led to her death in season three -- but when Barton's name was mentioned in the Elle interview, Gigandet played dumb. "Mischa? I didn't really...Was she there?" he quipped."I don't even have memories of her."

In general, the memories he does have aren't fond ones. "I learned a lot. But the things that I remember now -- none of them are good," he admitted of the drama, which also costarred Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody. "It was only the third or fourth season. Those kids were f---ing miserable. They were just -- they would not remember their lines on purpose. They were young."

Gigandet clarified, though, that he generally doesn't keep in touch with former costars. "I don't talk to anyone I've ever worked with," he said. The one exception is actor/comedian Nick Thune, with whom he appeared in Bad Johnson. "I'm not saying any of them are terrible," he said. "I've loved a lot of them, but I talk to one."

Shia LaBeouf Reportedly Dragged Out of Cabaret in Handcuffs by Police

Broadway World is reporting that Shia LaBeouf was hauled out of a production of Cabaret during intermission by police in handcuffs. He was reportedly "being disruptive" during the first act.

Cast member Danny Burstein apparently posted to his Facebook
, "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your places call for Act II. Also, to let you know, Shia LaBeouf has just been escorted from the building in handcuffs."



Update 10:58 p.m.: Per ABC's Aaron Katersky, LaBeouf was charged by police with criminal trespass and two counts of disorderly conduct, and apparently threatened police and other guests as the show. And according to Page Six, he allegedly told police officers at the Midtown precinct, "Fuck you. I'll fuck you up."

Fox Exec on Kris Jenner's Failed Talk Show: 'She Was Pretty Uninteresting'

"She looked not just like a deer in the headlights but like a deer that already got hit," says Fox TV Stations' Frank Cicha.


Last summer the Fox TV Station Group did a six-week test run of a talk show starring Kris Jenner, the “momager” of the Kardashian clan. Months of silence followed before it became clear that Kris would not move forward.

On Thursday, in a discussion with The Hollywood Reporter about three new shows Fox will test this summer, Frank Cicha, senior VP and President of programming for the Fox Television Stations, admitted he knew by the time the test ended that Kris wasn’t going to work. “I think she was pretty uninteresting [on camera],” Cicha said. “That was one where [sister company] 20th Television tried to capitalize on a name. … When the camera was on she looked not just like a deer in the headlights, but like a deer that already got hit.”

Lorde thinks Taylor Swift is an 'incredible role model'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The 17-year-old star has praised her singer pal for setting a good example for young girls through her music and thinks they are close because they both understand the music business.

She explained: ''I think there are artists who are really incredible role models and that's something I admire. I feel like Taylor is a really good role model and I think that the girls who listen to her music are so devoted to her, and I think what she's saying is pretty cool. It's empowering.

''If we have the same work problems, we know each other's lives better. It's always good befriending people who do a similar thing.''

Before they became friends, the 'Royals' hitmaker criticised Taylor, 24, for being ''perfect and unattainable'' but Lorde says Taylor wasn't offended by her comment.

She revealed: ''She was like, 'It's fine, if all you've done is call someone perfect it's not a bad thing.'

Lorde also hit out at Taylor's best friend Selena Gomez, 21, over her sexually suggestive song 'Come and Get It', and the New Zealand-born star admits she has learned her lesson from the media storm her remarks created.

She said: ''I feel weird talking about it because I stated an opinion and people took that and made it mean something. It's easier never to talk about anyone else's work because they might take it the wrong way.'

While Lorde looks up to Taylor as a role model, she is reluctant to be considered one herself and hopes her fans realise she's not perfect.

The singer elaborated: 'I'm probably going to screw up at some point - probably soon - and people are going to say, 'You're not a good role model.' But I figure, I'm 17 and I'm very much perfect. I'm figuring this out too and I think people are aware of that.'

Shia LaBeouf brags of his "millions" and calls cop "f-g" during fingerprinting after "Cabaret" bust

Actor Shia LaBeouf was hauled off in handcuffs for acting like an aggressive jerk at a Broadway play — and then put in a face mask at a Manhattan police precinct when he wouldn’t stop spitting, sources told The Post.

The actor was busted at about 9:30 p.m. during a performance of “Cabaret” at Studio 54 in Midtown.

Sources said that the “Nymphomaniac” actor was annoying other theater goers by slapping random people on the behind and on the back of the head. He was also smoking.

When cops approached him, he tried to quickly walk away, but fell, so he was taken off in handcuffs as a crowed of shocked patrons looked on.

At the Midtown North precinct he got belligerent with officers, telling cops who were about to remove his hand cuffs: “F–k you. I’ll f- -k you up,” sources said.

Cops decided to not take the cuffs off and he started spitting, prompting officers to put him in a face mask.

While being fingerprinted LaBeouf told one cop “I have millions and millions of dollars and attorneys and I’m going to ruin your career.” He then used a homophobic epithet at the officer doing the fingerprinting, calling him a “fag.”

He’s been charged with criminal trespass, harassment and disorderly conduct, according to law enforcement sources.
