An Open Letter To The Film Industry About The “Just Kids” Biopioc

Dear Film Industry,

Hey there! What’s up? I heard a rumor that you are working on a biopic of Patti Smith‘s memoir, Just Kids. Wow! I can’t say I’m surprised. It was a bestseller, winner of a National Book Award, and my favorite book of this year, aside from Freedom, which you will probably make into a movie too. But that’s not what I wanted to say. I wrote to beg of you, please don’t ruin this book by making a slick, star-studded movie. Keep reading »

The “Dancing With The Stars” Cast: 14 Predictions For This Season

Last night during “Bachelor Pad,” ABC unveiled the lineup for the new season of “Dancing with the Stars.” While I am shocked and dismayed that Queen Latifah is not among the ranks, I am totally thrilled by who they selected. Here are the women: Kristin Cavallari (of “The Hills’), Ricki Lake (of hello, do I need to explain?), Chynna Phillips (of Wilson Phillips), Nancy Grace (the newscaster), and Elisabetta Canalis (the Italian television star and recent ex of George Clooney). And the men: Ron Artest (the Los Angeles Laker), Carson Kressley (of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”), Robert Kardashian (the younger brother of Kim), and Chaz Bono (the son of Cher and Sonny Bono who used to be a she.) And the two people who it’s a stretch to call stars: JR Martinez (the “All My Children” actor who was burned while serving in Iraq) and Hope Solo (the goalie of the US women’s soccer team. No relation to Han.)

After the jump, 14 predictions on what we think will happen this season. Keep reading »

“Absolutely Fabulous” Is Coming Back!

Now this is a far better idea than “Sex and the City 3.” Long before there was Carrie Bradshaw with her tutu/head scarf pairings and Samantha with her fondness for vibrators, there were Edina and Patsy of “Absolutely Fabulous.” The 40-something magazine editor and her sidekick, a PR agent, were big time hippies who went on to disco hard in the ’70s and new wave out in the ’80s. And they aren’t about to let their age keep them from chasing the cool. These two Brits cling to their booze, cigarettes and couture, no matter what Edina’s daughter Saffron had to say. The show was far too hilarious. And so I am glad to announce that it will once again be on TV. Actresses Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley have signed on to reprise their roles for three US specials, which will air on both BBC America and Logo. Keep reading »

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: “Bachelor Pad” Puckers Up

Last night’s episode of “Bachelor Pad” contained kissing, kissing, and some more kissing. So who locked lips because it was part of the game and who made out because their hormones were raging? Find out after the jump when I recount last night’s good, bad, and WTF moments. And of course, SPOILER ALERT. Keep reading »

If Hurricane Irene Were A Rom-Com

What do Hurricane Irene and “I Don’t Know How She Does It” have in common? They both are going to take the box office by storm. Well maybe not. But together, they make a good joke. Our apologies to Sarah Jessica Parker’s face. Nothing personal. [Urlesque] Keep reading »

“Big Sexy,” TLC’s New Reality Show About Plus-Size Women In NYC

Rarely is there a reality show whose “stars” don’t make me stabby. (Or who look like they’re going to stab me, in the case of “Mob Wives.”) But the chicks on TLC’s “Big Sexy” actually seem like people who would be my friends in real life: funky, funny, and down-to-earth. The show, which debuts Tuesday night at 10 p.m., follows five full-figured females trying to make it in New York City’s fashion biz. This ain’t the gilded-lily “The City,” y’all: in this preview, we see the ladies being asked to pay $30 to enter a club while skinny-minnies behind them in line are let in for free. (After cussing out the bouncers, they stalk off.) I hope the entire show isn’t just incidents like this where they are discriminated against for being plus-sized because that would be depressing. Still I’m willing to give it a chance to counteract all the brain damage sustained by every minute spent watching Olivia Palermo onscreen. [AOL TV, TLC] Keep reading »
