Hallelujah! “Friday Night Lights,” which just ended its five season television run a few weeks ago, is coming to be the big screen, possibly as soon as 2013. Creator Peter Berg confirmed the rumor, saying that the movie would pick up when the show left off and would center around main characters, Coach Eric Taylor and his wife Tami. That would mean the divine Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton would be back for the film, but it’s still up in the air how many of the show’s more popular cast members/characters would join them. After all, in the series finale, the Taylors moved to Philadelphia, leaving Texas behind. I can only hope that somehow Berg and his fellow writers find a way to get a little Tim Riggins action in there. Assistant Coach? Taylor family pool boy? Whatever. In conclusion: clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose! [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
I’m sure it has not escaped your notice that I am not the biggest Gwyneth Paltrow fan. After numerous posts in which I took GP to task for her various displays of out-of-touch, pretentious BS — like the time she gave her GOOP readers a glimpse into the life of working motherhood, via three insanely wealthy women – I decided to lay off ol’ Goopy for a while. If you don’t have anything nice to say, Amelia, I thought, don’t say anything at all! And oddly enough, this exercise is abstaining from negativity has produced positive results! I am suddenly able to count — on two hands — the things I like about Gwyneth Paltrow! Here, the seven nice things to say about her.
Coco Chanel didn’t lay the foundation for her eponymous fashion empire by coloring within the lines and following the rules. So it’s not surprising that the deceased designer’s closet still holds a few skeletons–along with vintage little black Chanel dresses. In her book Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life, which will be released in the fall, biographer Lisa Chaney opens the door on Coco’s secrets. Chaney claims to have proof that Coco embraced bisexuality and drug use, and had an affair with Salvador Dali while he was married. By 2011 standards, these allegations aren’t particularly shocking, but another one might have a few fashion folks changing their opinions of the designer. Chaney also claims to have accessed documents from the Swiss Federal Archives that prove Coco’s German paramour, Hans Günther von Dincklage, spied for the Nazis during World War II. It’s unclear whether Coco knew he was a spy, but let’s not forget that she did live in neutral Switzerland for some time … perhaps to avoid any proceedings against her? This isn’t the first biography of Coco, and it probably won’t be the last, but Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life might be the most controversial and revealing.
