Bridget Jones’s Diary: The Musical!?

First, Bridget Jones’s Diary was a book. Then it was a movie. Then another movie. And, as rumor has it, another movie. We started shaking our heads when we heard about a possible Bridget Jones TV show. And now, alas, it’s going to be a musical. There’s no word yet on who will be playing Bridget—Renée Zellweger did prove she can sing in “Chicago.” We do know, however, that Lily Allen is doing music for the show. Plus, the director and choreographer of “Billy Elliot,” Stephen Daldry and Peter Darling, are also on board. The musical is in the workshop stage and could open in London’s West End as early as next year. Would you go see it if you took a trip across the pond? [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

5 Things We Would Like To See In The “Top Gun” Sequel

We’re approaching July 4th, and that means celebrating our country via lots of drinking, eating, and pyrotechnics. Here’s some news that could add an extra dash of excitement to your Independence Day—there is talk of Tom Cruise and producer Jerry Bruckheimer working together to make a “Top Gun” sequel. There are few movies that get more A-mur-rican than “TG,” what with the arena rock, fast planes, machismo and vague wars. In a recent interview, Bruckheimer said that ideas for the project have been “kicked around” but that they are having trouble figuring out a way to: a) incorporate today’s technology and b) work Cruise’s character Maverick as an older dude into a story that still has the same kick-butt cheesy vibe as the original.

Well, we have some ideas! Here are our suggestions on how to make this potential sequel fresh without losing the patriotic ’80s flavor that made it a classic. Keep reading »

Khloe Kardashian And Lamar Odom: Do NOT Do Your Own Reality Show!

Dear Khloe and Lamar,

First off, I would like to congratulate you on your recent nuptials. I believe that you are one of the only reality TV couples that are actually real. Because you have managed to convince me of the validity of your love, I am invested in making it last. I am writing this letter out of concern for your future.

DO. NOT. DO. IT. The curse of reality TV couples has proven itself to be true over and over again. If you star in a reality show together, inevitably, you will break up. Keep reading »

A Choose Your Own Adventure “Eclipse” Game


I used to be a big fan of choose-your-own-adventure books, and I also used to be a big cheat. Meaning that when it came to picking my literary destiny, I would read the outcome of all the options, and pick the one that didn’t involve my scuba tank running out of air. But because it’s online, this new “Eclipse” 8-bit video game doesn’t allow me that luxury. And don’t expect your “Twilight” knowledge to get you through to a happy ending, either. As Bella, I chose to marry Edward and ended up getting beaten to death with a baseball bat by Victoria. So let’s just say there is some artistic license involved. Keep reading »

Quotable: Justin Rego Gives His Side Of “The Bachelorette” Story

“I was not in a relationship before I went on the show and I am still single now. … I left those [voicemail] messages [played during my exit] when I was very confused and I was disgusted to hear messages with such private and personal content! I am quite upset that they were shared with the world just for an amazing scandal. Those messages were actually left after I told producers that I wanted OFF THE SHOW in Iceland. Yes, that’s right! I no longer wanted to be a part of the show and wanted to get on the first plane home to Toronto! … I no longer have any contact with Jessica, nor do I want her in my life in any way. I feel betrayed, manipulated and unfairly lied to by both the producers of ABC’s ‘The Bachelorette’ and Jessica. … Always keep this in mind that you can’t believe everything you see on TV.”

Justin Rego takes to Facebook to give his side of the story on whether he had two girlfriends while courting Ali on “The Bachelorette.” Wait, did he really not address the part where he jumped over a fence with a broken foot while Ali was trying to confront him? And if he’s not in touch with Jessica anymore, why was he photographed with her in early June? [Facebook] Keep reading »

Jessica Simpson’s “Price Of Beauty” Could Now Be A Makeover Show

Breaking news: something disappointing is getting even more disappointing. We’ve always been unimpressed with Jessica Simpson‘s show, “The Price of Beauty,” in which she and her best friends, Ken Paves and Cacee Cobb, travel around the world to discover what “beauty” means in other cultures.

But scratch that idea. Now it could become a makeover show. Keep reading »

Wonder Woman Gets A Makeover

Most 69-year-old women are chasing the grandkids, but Wonder Woman is still chasing bad guys — and she’s got a new outfit for the first time ever! Wonder Woman will debut her makeover today, in Issue No. 600 of her monthly comic book. Gone is the golden eagle-encrusted bodice, star-spangled boy shorts and, shocker, 80 percent of her exposed flesh. Wonder Woman’s new duds are downright modest — typically unheard of for women in comic book land — with black tights, a red top and blue jacket. Her ample bosom still features prominently, but hey, at least she is no longer fighting crime in a bustier. [New York Times] Keep reading »
