Frisky Q&A: Writer/Director Cherien Dabis Talks “Amreeka,” Tinseltown, And Netflix Picks

When Cherien Dabis was a teen growing up in small town Ohio, the First Gulf War broke out. Her family began getting death threats and her Palestinian father, a doctor, lost patients. These experiences came to inspire the filmmaker to write and direct the award-winning “Amreeka,” a movie that tells the story of Muna, a single mother who leaves her life in the West Bank and moves to Illinois with her teenage son, Fadi. While their move to the United States is filled with obstacles, the movie isn’t a total downer. In fact, it’s filled with amazing family moments that are often sweet and funny, showing a different side of the conflict. Cherien spoke to The Frisky about how similar life experiences drove her to become a filmmaker, what it was like to make a film in Palestine, and which movies we should add to our Netflix queue.

“True Blood” Spoiler: Things Are Gonna Get Gayer In Bon Temps

For a kind of backwoods Southern town, Bon Temps is pretty flaming. Things are supposedly going to get even hotter in the third season. We already told you that “True Blood” producers cast Theo Alexander as a gay vampire who’s known as the “King Of Mississippi.” There were also rumors that our favorite gay line cook, Lafayette, would be getting his own love interest. Then the drop-dead drool-worthy Alexander Skarsgard hinted that his character, Eric, would be gettin’ it on with women AND men in the next season, but he’s not the only main character steaming things up with another dude.

Michael Scott And David Brent Set For An “Office” Showdown

As a fan of both the American and British versions of “The Office,” I have on occasion wondered who would win in an arm-wrestling match—David Brent or Michael Scott. It looks like I might finally get my answer. Rumor has it that Ricky Gervais will be doing a guest spot on “The Office,” stateside, playing his infamous character. Writers, feel free to take that arm-wrestling idea. Or you could make it a dance-off. Either way, I’m curious to see which of these dudes’ characters is the more egotastically clueless in a side-by-side comparison. [The Independent] Keep reading »

Conan O’Brien Could Get $32 Million In Severance Pay

On the Golden Globes red carpet Sunday night, Tina Fey joked, “It’s not rain—it’s just God crying for NBC.” She of course meant that her network is not only sagging in ratings, but got itself in a pickle by creating a 10 p.m. “Jay Leno Show” and moving Conan O’Brien to “The Tonight Show,” only to go back on that decision a few months later and try to rejigger their late-night lineup. When Conan stood up to them and said that the switcheroo would “seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting,” he seemed to win in the court of public opinion. And now it appears that his bank account will win, too. A deal is being worked out between NBC and Conan as we speak. And insiders say the severance package would give Conan $32.5 million dollars to exit gracefully. This deal would block him from further bad-mouthing NBC and would keep him from penning a contract with another station for a year. After that, he’d be a free agent. The deal also takes into account Conan’s staff—giving them $7 million in severance pay. While this sounds like not a terrible deal, given the situation, I’m sad that we won’t see Conan’s red hair on late-night TV until 2011. What do you think—fair or no?

We’re Singing A Happy Tune About These Possible “Glee” Guest Stars

I’m counting down the days until April 13, 2010, aka the day my new television guilty pleasure “Glee” returns with new episodes. Will Emma and Will finally get it on? What about Rachel and Finn? And what about Quinn and Puck’s love child? As if we weren’t excited enough already, the little gossip birdies are starting to chirp about possible guest stars for next season. Let’s just say that that creator Ryan Murphy has been talking to “How I Met Your Mother” star Neil Patrick Harris and sources say he may be breaking out his jazz shoes for a little song and dance, gleek-style. [EW]

After the jump, some more possible “Glee” guest appearances that we’re stoked about. Keep reading »

More “Teen Mom” Dysfunction: A Choking Incident And An Arrest

The 54-year-old mother of “Teen Mom” Farrah Abraham was arrested over the weekend for allegedly choking and hitting Farrah while the two argued over childcare. Debra Danielson is now facing domestic abuse/serious assault charges. The two were arguing when Debra threw an MTV T-shirt that landed “on or near” Farrah’s infant, Sophia. That’s when Farrah went off on her mother, who allegedly retaliated by grabbing her daughter’s throat. When Farrah pushed her mother’s hand away, Debra reportedly struck her on the right side of her mouth and head. The police in Council Bluffs, IA, observed several cuts on the right side of Farrah’s lips. [TMZ, PopEater] Keep reading »

The Puppy Cam Is Back!!


Gah, you guys, the puppy cam is back!!! Isn’t this just what we need to get through these dreary days of winter, devastating global news, and, you know, work? The Shiba Inu Puppy Cam first hit the scene in late 2007 when the breeder’s dog, Kika, had pups. Now she has a new litter — the “B” team — and the breeder will livestream their crazy-cute antics during the day. The new litter has three males and two females. All of them are beyond adorable, and at this very moment they’re nursing from their mama who is licking each one clean. Well, there goes the rest of my work day! [via Gawker] Keep reading »

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The Entire Cast Of “Jersey Shore”

It’s a sad week for America, my friends. The first season of “Jersey Shore” ends on Thursday night. I don’t even know what I’m going to do next week. Maybe go to the local boardwalk to pour out some Tequila shots for my homies? Or go on a pilgrimage to Karma? Or purchase crystal-studded booty shorts? I’d better start tanning now. In honor of what has been a brilliant anthropological study of the summertime inhabitants of New Jersey, we’ve put together a Shun, Shag, or Marry for the entire cast. Speak now your grievances with my choices or forever hold your peace. Or we can fight—but you should know that I punch like a Jersey girl. Keep reading »

“The Pregnancy Pact” Story Was Born To Be A Lifetime Made-For-TV Movie

Lifetime Original Movies are always tabloid-y (my pops calls them “women in distress films that Mom watches”), but the upcoming flick “The Pregnancy Pact” really takes the cake. Remember a few years ago when the scandal broke that 17 teen girls at Gloucester High School in Massachusetts made a “pregnancy pact” to get knocked up and have their babies together? Remember how everyone freaked out? Then remember how the pregnant girls all agreed the media just made it up and there was no pregnancy pact?

No matter. Lifetime has made a sure-to-be-fantastic, made-for-TV movie all about it, which will air Jan. 23. Keep reading »

“Bachelor” Jake Drops By “Ellen”


Dorky “Bachelor” Jake dropped by the “Ellen” show yesterday and showed about as much personality as a radish dipped in hummus. He didn’t reveal much dirt except that he “may” not have chosen anyone at the end, he definitely fell in love with more than one person during the show, and thinking about Rozlyn engaging in inappropriate relations with one of the staffers “makes him turn red.” Gag! For her part, Ellen seems to think Ali will be the final woman standing, Michelle should stay around for good TV, and Elizabeth — the “don’t kiss me girl,” who was kicked off last night — is manipulative. Do you guys think Ellen is right? Will Ali get a ring at the end, or do you believe Jake who keeps insinuating he’s not going to choose anyone? [via YouTube] Keep reading »
