Stevie Nicks should really guest star on every TV show as herself. Last night on “American Horror Story: Coven,” the “white witch” showed up to serenade her old friend, coven Supreme, Fiona, and die-hard fanwitch, Misty, with a version of “Rhiannon.” If that weren’t enough, Stevie also showed Misty how to do her signature move, the shawl twirl, and gifted the young witch with her signature item, which no doubt is filled with all sorts of white magic. Sadly, Madison convinced Misty that “players only love you when they’re playin’” and that Stevie probably had tons of other superfans who she played private concerts for (ME! ME! PLEASE!). But Madison was playin’ her. She knocked Misty out cold and stole the shawl — nice hustle, girl! — and Stevie was left to play once again for Fiona. Best use of a TV plot involving Stevie Nicks and her music. You can relive the white witch’s version of “Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You” after the jump. Keep reading »
‘Twas the night before Halloween
And all through the house

Did you watch the premiere of “American Horror Story: Coven” last night? What did you think? While I thought this first episode was more brutal than scary (um, that gang rape scene was so upsetting), I am excited about this season’s potential, given that it’s based on real life events and people. In fact, Madame Marie Delphine LaLaurie, played by the incredible Kathy Bates (clip above), is a real person who actually existed and did many of the vile, deranged and cruel things we can expect to see more of as the season progresses. After the jump, let’s get to know the 1830′s socialite turned serial killing slave torturer! Keep reading »
If we were to rate how excited we are for tonight’s “American Horror Story: Coven” premiere on a scale from one to 10, it’s up there with the possibility of a “Friends” reunion, the moon landing, my mom’s meatloaf and the black hole that will hopefully one day absorb Justin Bieber, coming in at a whopping 99+.
In case you didn’t catch that, we are PUMPED.

Could Jessica Lange actually be a good witch? In the past two seasons of “American Horror Story,” she has only played terrifying villianesses with the blackest of hearts, so my interest is piqued in this first glimpse at season three of “American Horror Story: Coven,” which comes back to FX on October 9th. Finally, finally creator Ryan Murphy divulges some details: Taissa Farmiga discovers she is a witch and gets sent to a school in New Orleans for “girls like you,” Miss Robichaux’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies. Jessica Lange is the headmistress with a class of young witches in her charge and yes, that is Gabourey Sidibe in the cast. Everything I learn about “Coven” just makes it better and better. [YouTube]
Mark your calendars: October 9th is the debut of “American Horror Story: Coven,” the third season of the campy, terrifying and highly watchable FX show. “Coven” is set in New Orleans at a big ol’ Southern-style mansion that appears to be a school or home for young witches. Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, and Taissa Farmiga will return from past seasons, while Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett are joining the cast for what promises to be some badass witchery. Wiccans, please just let us have this one, okay?
