Why Xena and Gabrielle never got together



Rob Tapert: "We didn’t really ever want to get them 100 percent together for a very strange reason. There was Ares [Kevin Smith], God of War, who we loved. We did not want to give up the hold that character had over Xena and the enjoyment we had with telling stories of Xena and Ares. So as much as we liked that Xena and Gabrielle were two people who were the best of friends, and perhaps intimate friends, we never wanted to give up Ares.” Tapert also says the studio wouldn't let Xena and Gabrielle appear in the same frame during the opening credits because they were worried people would think it was a lesbian show.

Renee O'Connor said that Rob would push the envelope as far as he could, but that he had to work within network guidelines.

Viggo is not purposefully ignoring studio offers

“I guess you could call the movies I do off the beaten track, I’m not willfully ignoring studio movies. I’m just looking for stories I think are worth telling.”

“I’m happy to make one really good movie a year,” Mortensen says. “The process does take a toll. It’s hard just to get a movie made and find attention for it.”

“They were picking up a tone that wasn’t really there,” Ross says. “There’s something about Viggo — he’s a man’s man, but he’s also physically fit, and believes intellectually in the words coming out of his mouth.”

Leonardo DiCaprio takes private jet from Cannes to collect environmental award in New York

- On Wednesday, Leo flew ~6,400 km/4,000 miles from Cannes to New York to accept the Riverkeeper "Big Fish" award for his "dedication to the environment on a global scale." Less than 24 hours later, the Aviator star flew back to Cannes to attend amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS gala.

- A source close to Leo claimed that the actor/environmentalist only "hitched a ride with someone already flying back and to Cannes. Hitching a ride was the only way he could make it in time for both events." Leo did not charter his own flights.

- An excerpt from Leo's Oscar acceptance speech: "Climate change is real. It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. ... Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted."


ONTD, should Leo have opted for a more eco-friendly way to pick up his award?

Another Direwolf's fate is sealed? NEW "The Door" Game of Thrones Spoilers & Theories

Based on the images, Bran will have an encounter with the Night’s King, the leader of the White Walkers. The scene was first teased in the trailer for season 6. It seems odd that Bran, who has been revisiting his family’s history in flashbacks in past episodes, would suddenly have a vision of the Night’s King—unless, of course, there is some previously undisclosed history between the White Walkers and the Starks. An ancestor of the Starks maybe?

The BBC Asked Jodie Foster How Much Money George Clooney and Julia Roberts Were Paid

Actress and director Jodie Foster was put in an uncomfortable position during an interview with the BBC. In an interview at Cannes to promote her film Money Monster, the interviewer pressured Foster to reveal how much money she paid stars George Clooney and Julia Roberts, and whether they were paid equally.

The BBC has faced criticism from other media outlets, as it has consistently declined to reveal whether its own female correspondents and staff are paid equitably.

Also, why doesn't Jodie have her own tag???!!!

Victoria's Secret Eliminates Their Swim, Apparel, Shoes, Accessories, and Catalogues


Victoria's Secret has confirmed that it will no longer carry swimwear, apparel, or accessories, and that it will significantly decrease the number of catalogues circulated. The lingerie behemoth was rumored for months to be dropping the aforementioned categories amid changes to its corporate structure. The three remaining departments-- Victoria's Secret Lingerie, Victoria's Secret Beauty, and Victoria's Secret PINK-- will be structured as individual businesses, each with its own executive leadership.

--About 290 layoffs as result

--Will hurt short-term revenue, but will see growth in long run

--VS is focusing on streamlining and narrower focus on lingerie, beauty.

--The elimination of their catalogues will have no significant impact on sales

--Focus more on digital imprinting on consumers

--Pink is the strongest of the core categories, and Beauty is the weakest

Will this affect how you shop at Victoria's Secret?

AMC - PREACHER Premiere tonight 10/9c

- Ruth : “When I read the pilot, I rang my agent and said, ‘You’re sending me something I’m never going to get and that’s mean.’”
- Seth on Dom's casting : “The actor needs to encompass everything the show encompasses, which is something that’s very dark at times but also light at times, something that is very funny at times and romantic and sexual at times,” Rogen said. “We needed an actor who could star in all those different shows, basically.”


Feel free to use this as a talkback/viewing post for you East Coasters! I'm pretty psyched as a fan of the comic, though I'm aware they had to do quite a bit of changes to have it work for television. Lots of entertaining TV tonight, but hope you tune in to witness the beauty of Ruth, Dom, and Joe on our screens on a weekly basis.

ONTD Original: R&B One Album Wonders of the 1990s and 2000s

Many weeks ago I made this post: ONTD Original: R&B One Hit Wonders of the 1990s and 2000s and in the comments ONTD member eastaccidental came up with idea for someone to do a post about artists who were one album wonders and since I did the one hit wonder I decided why not do it.

Now onto the topic, this ONTD/kobewife1 Original will be about artists that had one great/good first album then could never duplicate or duplicate at least a fraction of the success of their previous album.
