“The Dirty Girls Social Club” Author Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez Alleges Racist TV Adaptation Of Her Book

Most authors would die to see their book made into a movie or TV show. But not Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez — not anymore. The author of The Dirty Girls Social Club got ahold of a script based on her book and was shocked to see that: 1) all the black characters were removed and changed to be of other races, and 2) all the Latina characters are sexually promiscuous, even described as “sizzling.” Seeing The Dirty Girls Social Club adapted on TV, she said, now “holds zero appeal for me.”

“The Dirty Girls Social Club,” in development with NBC, will be written by Luisa Leschin for Ann Lopez’s Encanto Productions (also known as Ann Serrano, as she is splitting from comedian George Lopez). Over a year ago, Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez optioned the rights for her book to Lopez, who, with Alisa’s help, got a development deal with NBC. But the script adaptation she covertly saw when a “no one” within the company leaked it to her was so racist, sexist and overall offensive that Alisa wrote on her blog today, “I’d rather no show get made than to have my name attached to Luisa’s bastardizations.” Keep reading »

A First Look At Rachel Bilson’s New Movie, “Waiting For Forever”


It’s good to see Rachel Bilson again. Her new movie, “Waiting For Forever,” a tale about two childhood sweethearts, looks like it could be super good. While the boy moves away, he stays obsessed with the girl all the way up to when they’re reunited in their 20s. So is this movie going in a “Mother, May I Sleep With Danger” direction? Or will it take more of a romantic twist? Guess we’ll have to wait and see. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Sarah Palin Hunts Rudolph? Two Late-Night Show Variations On The Same Idea

Oh that crazy Conan. On his show last night, he played this video—in which Sarah Palin kills Rudolph. Maybe it’s the obvious reindeer-inspired gag but, as Deadline and PopEater point out—Jimmy Kimmel did essentially the same thing on his show. Check it out, after the jump. Keep reading »

The Pauly D Show?

It’s official—the first “Jersey Shore” cast member has been given their own spin-off show. The pilot for the new series was shot this fall and follows the life of one Pauly Delvecchio. “He’s distinguished himself onscreen as the fun-loving, well-coiffed, and dependable guy you can’t help but want to hang out with,” MTV’s head of productions explained. “We know viewers are curious about his life away from the shore and we look forward to exploring new possibilities around that.” I’d like to propose an alternate theory on why Pauly D is the first of the “Jersey Shore” crew to get his own show: Snooki and The Situation demanded too much money.

Enrique Iglesias’ Dirty-Talkin’ New Single And Raunchy Video

That crafty bastard, Enrique Iglesias, has a new single out called “Tonight (I’m F**kin’ You)” — no, seriously, that’s the f**king title — and just released a super soft core video to accompany it, thus stealing my vote for Song of the Year. [There's also a "clean" version called "Tonight (I'm Lovin' You)," but it's even less fun than the scrubbed version of Cee-Lo's "F**k You" ("Forget You").] Way to slip in from behind at the last second, Enrique. Watch the NSFW video (there’s nekkid titties and some sex noises!) after the jump… Keep reading »

Yes, That’s Grace Jones And Pee-wee Herman Singing Christmas Carols

It should come as no surprise that Grace Jones and Pee-wee Herman used to hang out. After all, they’re two of the strangest characters of the ’80s, so sure. Here, an uncharacteristically ebullient Grace sings “Little Drummer Boy” to Pee-wee, Chairy, Terry and the rest of the “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” gang. [YouTube] Keep reading »
