“Ashton Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer. Oh wait, so am I!! Enjoy the show America, Enjoy seeing 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB. Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton. There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there.”
—Charlie Sheen reacts to the news that Ashton Kutcher will be replacing him on “Two and a Half Men,” the sitcom he was fired from before losing his marbles. Interestingly, sources say Ashton will be making $650K to $700K an episode, which is an insane amount of loot but still far less than Charlie’s price tag of $1.8 million an episode. So it looks like producer Chuck Lorre might be the one who is winning most of all, what with the publicity and savings per episode? [People] Keep reading »
Speaking of reboots of classic female heroines, Sarah Michelle Gellar spoke to CNN this week about (a) her partnership with Nestle’s Share the Joy of Reading project and (b) the new “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” movie that Warner Brothers is currently working on. And our girl does not mince words. “It was a movie, it’s been made—it stars Kristy Swanson. They don’t need to make another one. I think it’s a horrible idea to try to do a ‘Buffy’ without Joss Whedon!” Sarah Michelle said. “That’s like honestly, to be incredibly non-eloquent, that’s the dumbest idea I ever heard.” Co-sign. Even if they cast the awesome Heather Morris of “Glee,” it just won’t be right. [NY Post] Keep reading »
What were you doing 20 years ago today? Perhaps preparing to watch a new NBC drama called “Sisters”?
It was two decades ago that the Emmy-winning series premiered, earning critical acclaim and a loyal fanbase, while helping to launch the careers of up-and-comers like Ashley Judd and Paul Rudd. The series also earned a certain TV pilot veteran his shot at another TV drama that would send him on the path to big-screen stardom and an Oscar. Keep reading »
When it was announced that David E. Kelly, the husband of Michelle Pfeiffer and creator of “Ally McBeal,” was working on a reboot of “Wonder Woman,” the buzz instantly reached a fever pitch. We all started speculating on who could fill Linda Carter’s iconic star-spangled hotpants. When Adrianne Palicki of “Friday Night Lights” landed the role, we got a little giddy. We even reveled in her big costume reveal.
But apparently, it was much ado over nothing. Keep reading »
It’s hard to believe that “America’s Next Top Model” has been around for 16 cycles. If there were 13 girls a season (and I’m pretty sure that many seasons had 14) that makes 208 wannabe models on the show whose names we learned, faces we dissected, and breakdowns we reveled in. So it’s fitting that the next season will be “America’s Next Top Model All-Stars.” In other words, there will be no new perfectly symmetrical faces. The cast will be comprised of the girls you loved and the ones you loved to hate in seasons past, each hoping to win the title and its prizes the second time around.
Slowly, we’re starting to get information on who is joining cast. Unfortunately some of are favorites are not on the list. Jade tweeted, “I declined #ANTM cycle 17 immensely because my contract was completely Bogus and one sided! These girl’s just signed there Rights and Life away!” But we’re still overall pleased. After the jump, the rumored new cast.

Over the past few years, the words “summer television” have come to mean one thing to me: “True Blood.” More specifically, making Bloody Marys and watching “True Blood” with friends, so we can all swoon at the sexy parts and gasp at the shocking moments in unison. So I am pretty thrilled that season four of the show will be starting on June 26. Not so much longer to wait! Plus, the preview promises more of Joe Manganiello and his hair-free muscles. Which will help with the patience part. Keep reading »
