As y’all know (sorry, I’ll stop with the y’alls, I swear), I’m a hardcore fan of Connie Britton, so nothing was going to turn me off to her new show, “Nashville.” I also happen to be one of those California-raised Northeast transplants that fetishizes the South. I melt the moment Blake Shelton opens his mouth. I love to karaoke Tim McGraw’s “Something Like That.” Those accents are an instant panty dropper for me. I’ve never been anywhere in Texas besides their various airports, but I still like to say “Texas forever.” Don’t even get me started on Johnny, Dolly, Patsy, Waylon, and Merle, okay? You get the point. So a nighttime soap starring Connie Britton as a country star? Giddyup, I’m there. The great news is that “Nashville” is as good as the hype suggested, and features a complicated cast of characters and a multi-layered storyline that makes it so much more than “Smash” gone country. Let’s recap! Keep reading »
I quite literally squealed with glee when I saw this photo of Tami Taylor–er, I mean Connie Britton–and Hayden Panettiere decked out in gorgeous gold dresses for their new country music drama, “Nashville,” which debuts October 10th. As someone who is obsessed with Connie Britton, sequins, country music, southern accents, sassy ladies, and melodrama, I will definitely be tuning in. Check out a preview of the show after the jump!

Yeesh, Hayden, didn’t you get the memo about not wearing 10 trends at once? Yhe individual elements of this look aren’t terrible, but all together, they are just too much, especially on her petite frame. Turn around, go home, and try again!
Gillian Anderson just made “X-Files” fans cream their pants yet again: the actress told Out Magazine that she had a relationship with a girl throughout high school! But she is more comfortable calling herself a bisexual, or perhaps using no label, because her subsequent relationships have been with dudes. She also says because she knew she was attracted to men, so she didn’t feel especially stigmatized. “If I had thought I was 100 percent gay, would it have been a different experience for me? Would it have been a bigger deal if shame had been attached to it and all those things that become huge life-altering issues for youngsters in that situation?” Anderson said. ”It’s possible that my attitude around it came, on some level, from knowing that I still liked boys.” She also added in Out, “I don’t think I’ve ever followed convention by choice. By default, maybe, but not by choice.” Call yourself whatever you want, Gillian — we are girl-crushing so hard. [New York Post, Out]
Gillian Anderson isn’t the first lady to confess to a lesbian affair. After the jump, meet seven more ladies with Sapphic inclinations.
We’re noticing a trend lately. As the temperature heats up across the country, celebrities are taking scissors to their hair. We already told you about Heidi Klum’s new bob that’s about six or seven inches shorter than her previous style. And model Agyness Deyn started rocking a boyish buzz cut recently. Surprisingly, Hayden Panettiere also shortened her hair to a Sharon Stone-esque cut that gives her an edgier look in the sea of blondes in Hollywood. Renee Zellweger took her chin-length bob to a choppier cropped ‘do, too.
As someone with waist-length hair, I can understand the appeal of going shorter in the summer months. But can’t these women simply put their hair in a bun or ponytail when it’s too hot? Maybe the desire for a change was more of a motivation than the temperature. We’ll never know, but the more important question is: Do you cut your hair for the summer? Keep reading »
Last week, Hayden Panettiere announced that she was making the quantum leap to behind the camera, executive producing a new show for the CW called “HMS.” Billed as a younger “Grey’s Anatomy,” the show will be set at Harvard Medical School. We don’t know much more than that about the plot, but we do know that it will make medical school look glamorous and sexy, which we don’t get because hospitals are the least sexy places ever — or they were before a plethora of TV hospital dramas arrived to set our emotions on an IV drip.

Honestly, I’m not sure this is the best move for Hayden. Prime time seems stacked full of shows where doctors and nurses canoodle and have sex with each other in supply closets, on operating tables, in ambulances, and even in their own homes. Keep reading »
