The Curse Of The Lifetime Movie?

I’ve developed a theory. Maybe I am just overly paranoid, but there seems to be some kind of curse associated with starring in a Lifetime movie. The pattern is: be in a Lifetime movie and then things go down the tubes. Take, for example, former “American Idol” Fantasia Barrino. I knew that her Lifetime flick “The Fantasia Barrino Story,” in which she starred as … um … herself, would be a stinker, but are you aware of what’s become of her life since then? She’s broke, her $1.3 million mansion is allegedly in foreclosure, she’s dating a married man who works at T-Mobile, and she’s supposedly starring in an unscripted VH-1 reality show with Rudy from “The Cosby Show.” This is very, very bad, people. I’m starting to think this Lifetime curse is legit. [Celebitchy]

After the jump, several more stars who have fallen prey to the Lifetime curse. Keep reading »

It Pays To Be The Mean Girl On “Project Runway”

Did you watch last night’s season finale of “Project Runway“? Yeah, I didn’t think so. I’ve been putting off writing about it all day because, well, it was kind of boring. With Carol Hannah, Althea, and Irina competing, it seemed pretty clear that too-cool-for-school Irina was going to take the crown, despite maybe having knocked off her T-shirt from New York Magazine The preview for the episode tried to make it sound interesting by amping up a minor freak-out moment that Tim Gunn had backstage, worrying why everyone wasn’t lined up to get the show started on time. Carol Hannah dealt with her stomach bug. Irina half-accused Althea of stealing one of her ideas. Althea rolled her eyes. As the three women showed their collections, there were definitely some nice things, but, honestly, the only real highlight was seeing Jaslene from “America’s Next Top Model” stomping her bad self down the runway. In the end, Irina won. And it was touching seeing her Eastern European dad, who she’s said multiple times doesn’t think that a woman can make it as a fashion designer, get teary over her success. But all I can say is, I hope next season they figure out how to wake this sleepy series up. Keep reading »

I Was Once A Die-Hard Soap Opera Junkie

When I read an essay on Double X by Willa Paskin called “General Hospital Is The Most Violent Show On Television,” I got a little sad. “General Hospital” is my show! Or at least it was, until I stopped watching regularly a few years ago, after 15+ years of dedicated viewership. The news that James Franco, celebrated thespian, would be appearing as a thug on the show has made deep thinkers and film aficionados suddenly take notice of the long-running soap. But Paskin did a truly fabulous job of summing up the appeal of “General Hospital” — the reasons why a serious actor like Franco might want to appear on it — and I felt jealous that I hadn’t written it myself.

Of course, it’s never too early to find a replacement. Who should be the next Oprah? Check out the top six contenders for the Oprah crown. [PopEater] Keep reading »

The 10 Best Vampire Movies And TV Shows Of All Time

It’s not often that, before a movie has even opened, thousands and thousands of people have already bought their tickets. But MovieTickets.com says that “New Moon” has broken all their records—it’s earned the number one spot on the company’s list of the top 10 advance ticket sellers of all time, shooting the record held by “Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith” for five out of the water. Ditto for Fandango. They say that almost half of advance ticket buyers are under the age of 24, and that 87 percent of them are women. [EW]

In honor of the release of “New Moon,” here’s a look at the 10 best vampire movies and TV shows of all time, which you should see immediately. You know, since “New Moon” is sold out, for the next few days anyway. Keep reading »

Alexander Skarsgard Shares A “True Blood” Teaser

“True Blood” is about to get even sexier next season. I know, how is that possible? “There’s a lot of nudity,” Alexander Skarsgard (aka Vampire Eric) told RadarOnline.com. “As far as Eric goes, there’s going to be a lot violence and a lot of sex — with women and men! So it should be interesting.” Um, we’re going to get some guy-on-guy action? For those of us who like a little gay porn — not to mention the delectable blood-sucking sexiness of Skarsgard — this sounds tasty. [RadarOnline.com] Keep reading »

Slow-Talker Nicole Is America’s Next Top Shorty


And there she is, folks. The winner of “America’s Next Top Model” cycle 13, aka, the shorty season. In last night’s episode, red-headed space case Nicole—who, uh, loves motorcycles and thrill-seeking?—beat out sweet-as-humble-pie Laura, the bull-castrater from Kentucky. Far too many times in this season, Tyra declared that something was happening, “for the first time in ‘Top Model’ history,” as if that were eons and eons. The twist for the finale—instead of three girls doing the Cover Girl photo shoot and commercial, only two made it through to the last episode. I would have questioned this decision since it doesn’t lend itself to maximum drama, except that these were actually my two favorite girls from the season—Nicole, amusing since she perpetually seemed like she had taken too much ritalin, and Laura, adorable showing up to judging in clothes sewed by her grandma.

7 Sexy Hospital Shows Will Be On TV Next Season — Enough Already?

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. [ET]

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 »
