Lifetime’s TV movie adaptation of V.C. Andrews’ classic trashy read Flowers in the Attic has not even aired yet, but the network must be confident that incestuous romances are ratings gold, because they’re already planning to produce a sequel. Petals on the Wind is the second book in Andrews’ Dollanganger family series and follows the three remaining children after their escape from their evil grandmother’s attic and their mother’s attempts to poison them. Don’t worry! There’s still plenty of incestuous feelings, creepy old men, and a return to Foxworth Hall, as Cathy (Kiernan Shipka) plots to enact revenge against her mother and grandmother. I can only pray that every other pervert like me, who spent hours locked in their bedrooms, dog-earing the pages of V.C.’s books, actually tunes in for both these films, because I would personally love to see the third and fourth books adapted as well. And then the Casteel family series should be next! I could totally envision Lindsay Lohan as Heaven…
Anyway, “Flowers in the Attic” premiere January 18. Check out the extended trailer above! [Hollywood Reporter]
Why yes, I am coveting a 14-year-old’s outfit, what of it? “Mad Men”‘s Kiernan Shipka is a total fashion plate and I refuse to pretend like this outfit isn’t totally stylish just because its wearer wasn’t even born the year I graduated from high school. Besides, my inner age is, like, totally 14. Fellow teenagers-in-spirit, get the details on how to steal this outfit, after the jump! Keep reading »
[Update, 5:45p.m.: Damn, the trailer has been removed from the Internet! Trust us, it was good.] God bless Lifetime and their trashy, trashy movies. The trailer for the January 2014 remake of “Flowers In The Attic” is here and it’ll give you the heebies-jeebies in only the way a V.C. Andrews erotica about incestuous teenagers locked in an attic by their sadistic grandmother can. Lucky for us, the icky plot is leveled out with some real stars in the cast: “Mad Men”‘s Kiernan Shipka plays Cathy, the sister who falls in love with her brother, Heather Graham plays their troubled mother, and Ellen Burstyn is their psycho grandmother. This looks intense. You know we’re going to watch. [YouTube]
Well, this photo sure does fill me with joy. Kiernan Shipka — best known as Sally Draper on “Mad Men” — may only be 13 years old, and thus not alive when riot grrrl was in its hey day, but its influence lives on. I wonder what she’s listening to on her iPod. Bikini Kill? L7? Hole? Bratmobile? Soooo many badass possibilities. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Update: Want Kiernan’s Riot Grrrl T-shirt for yourself? I found it!
Oh, let me count all the ways I hate Kiernan Shipka. (And by hate I mean love.) She has a sense of humor. She’s got badass Chanel shoes. She wears capes. Her hair braid is freaking adorable. She makes her own clothes. She loves Helena Bonham Carter’s style. And she got to keep the wardrobe department’s backup pair of white go-go boots from that episode where Sally Draper bought some very ’60s shoes, because, duh, every 12-year-old needs a pair of white go-go boots. Oh God and she’s on Twitter at @KiernanShipka. BRB, begging her to be my little sister. [YouTube]
It’s about 10 years too late to help Shia LaBeouf. But maybe Kiernan Shipka can still do some good in the wild and crazy world of child stars. She has certainly spent long enough in the child psychologist’s office on “Mad Men.” Most of the sessions in this Funny Or Die video are pretty cool, like the one with that chick who played Topanga on “Boy Meets World.” But does the Eden Wood cameo one freak anyone else out? It’s a little too eerie … [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »
