  • … but he did make this Funny Or Die video about the show’s upcoming first black cast member. I totally called it that Diddy’s tweet last night – ”So happy to announce that I’m a series regular on Downton Abbey” — was a joke. [Funny Or Die]
  • This morning on “The Today Show,” Zoe Saldana responded to Allure listing her weight on the cover of the magazine: “I think it was to talk about for a lightweight person, I seem to be really strong minded.” What, so it’s shocking that skinny people can have strong opinions? [TODAY]

Is This Real Life?! Diddy Announces He Is Joining The Cast Of “Downton Abbey”

Minutes ago Diddy changed his Twitter avatar and background to the “Downton Abbey” logo and tweeted the following mindbogglingly awesome announcement:

“MY BIG NEWS: So happy to announce that Im a series regular on DOWNTON ABBEY-my favorite show+i’ll be debuting a sneak peek tonight 12am PST!”

We have no confirmation whether or not this is actually happening, if Diddy is pranking us, or if his account was hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army, but we think we speak for most people when we say, please, please let this be real!  [Twitter]

Coming Soon: “Downton Abbey”‘s First Black Character

“Downton Abbey” is delving right into 1920s race relations, according to the Sun, and for the first time, the show is casting a black character.

We here at The Frisky are obsessed with “Downton Abbey,” so much so that we dreamt up an entire faux magazine dedicated to the Crawley clan and their assorted footmen, lady’s maids and butlers. Downton Glamour is our ode to the crazy world that exists inside “Downton Abbey” and the no doubt salacious gossip reads that might come out of the manor and its inhabitants. Instead of recapping season three every week, we’re just hinting at the goings on with a new cover of Downton Glamour. Check out a larger version of this week’s issue — all about the action in episode four (sorry, I missed episode three) – here!

Ever wonder about the real story behind “Downton Abbey”‘s majestic house? Us too. It seems that the real life Lady and Lord Grantham are actually known as the Eighth Earl and Lady Carnarvon. They’ve lived in the house for around 20 years, and have restored it to its pre-war heights. And, they just happen to be friends with Julian Fellowes, the head writer and creator of Downton Abbey.

Explains Lady Carnarvon, the house hadn’t been lived in for more than 50 years when the pair inherited it. Highcler contains more than 50 bedrooms (which aren’t really shown on the show). And the Carnaven family has a story worthy of a “Downton” plot for sure, involving money, illegitimate children and Egyptology. And actually, some of the 5th Earl of Carnaven’s Egypt collection is housed at Highcler today. [CBS]

 

You Can Watch The Final 3 Episodes Of “Downton Abbey” Early Thanks To iTunes

downton abbey season 3

If you were annoyed at having to wait three months for “Downton Abbey” Season 3 to hit PBS, you’re going to love this news. Apple is set to offer the final three episodes of the season before they air. Could this work for other shows?

The wait was painful but didn’t seem to affect viewership in the least. The premiere pulled in a record-breaking 7.9 million viewers. So what’s with the last three episodes being “leaked” before they play on PBS?

The BBC reports that while the final episode of Season 3 is set to premiere February 17, Apple will offer the final three episodes starting January 29. The catch is you’ll have to buy a “season pass” for the show on iTunes to get them. Read more…
