“The Sopranos” May Be The Next HBO Show Turned Into A Movie

I’m not going to lie, I actually loved the “Sex and The City” movie. It gave fans like me another dose of Carrie and the girls, who we’ve missed so intensely since the show’s finale. (And, of course, I’m holding my breath until the “SATC” sequel.) But now it seems that every popular HBO show is being considered for a movie version. Jeremy Piven already spilled the beans that he’s working on bringing Ari, Vince, and the rest of the “Entourage” crew to the big screen. Now word’s out about a possible “Sopranos” flick. Seriously?!

“The Rachel Zoe Project” Season Two Trailer: August Just Got A Whole Lot Better

It’s a big day in Rachel Zoe news. Not only did The Zoe Report debut this morning, but there’s also a preview trailer for season two of “The Rachel Zoe Project,” which airs on Bravo starting Aug. 24. We cannot wait to watch how she deals with the bad press about her underweight look; to see who quits first, Brad or Taylor; and to marvel at the gorgeousness that is Liv Tyler, who says upon arriving at Rachel’s studio, “I need cute outfits!” We do, too, Liv, so can we have your hand-me-downs?

Reality Show Contestants: The Sweatshop Workers Of The Acting World?

Ever since the first season of “The Real World” (damn that was a long time ago), I’ve watched reality television evolve—or devolve?—from a bunch of earnest 20-somethings struggling to make it in New York City to a bunch of fame-seeking whores pulling hair, getting wasted, and performing soft porn on camera. (Ever seen “Tila Tequila’s Shot at Love?”) I often ask myself what kind of person would want to live their life on camera? What goes on when it isn’t rolling? And how svengali-like are the producers? Luckily, the New York Times ran a story yesterday that answered many of my questions.

While people on these shows sign extensive non-disclosure agreements—they practically have to hand over their first-born should they reveal “reality show secrets”—most contracts expire after a few years. So some reality stars are opening up about their experiences while filming. After the jump, some the revelations from the article that shocked me the most. Keep reading »

“True Blood” Recap: Godrick Saves The Day!

Last night’s episode of “True Blood” was mega exciting. In a nutshell: Bill was stuck in a hotel room with his maker Lorena and we were treated to another flashback, though this one was less bloody and sexual. I wonder if, as time goes on, we’ll get to see flashbacks of all the vamps in different time periods. Aren’t you just dying to see what Eric looked like in the ’70s? I know I am!

Remote Control: What You’ll Want to Watch The Week Of August 3rd 2009

This week, lots of shows are coming and going. First, we’ll say good-bye to “So You Think You Can Dance” for the season. But do not fret. In addition to the premieres of “Addicted to Beauty” and “How’d You Get So Rich,” we have new episodes of “Jon & Kate Plus 8” to look forward to. The recently separated couple return to the screen in their first new episode in five weeks. And Chris Kattan will make his first appearance on the boob tube in what seems like years in “Bollywood Hero.” It’s shaping up to be a wicked week for the square screen. Keep reading »

“Defying Gravity” Looks Kind Of Amazing

ABC’s new summer series, “Defying Gravity,” combines sex, space, and hottie Ron Livingston from “Office Space” and “Sex and the City.” It’s like someone reached into our brains, and figured out how to combine our three favorite things. The show, which starts tonight, follows four women and four men who are on a six-year space mission to study the solar system. But the crew starts studying each other, too, and pretty soon things start to heat up. AP reports that, “Naked bodies float around from time to time, sometimes engaged in simulated sex.” Hot! Oh yeah, and there’s bound to be drama because the captain has not just one, but two, ex girlfriends on board. With any luck, it’ll be a quarter as interesting as the real-life astronaut love triangle. Minus the diapers. [AP] Keep reading »

Television Tries To Represent Gay And Lesbian Folks. But Usually Fails.

I gotta say, given that it’s 2009 and all, I’m just not impressed with how gay and lesbian folks are portrayed on television. Sure, you might see gay couples on TV, particularly of the lesbian variety. But often, these portrayals smack of being publicity stunts. This week, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation did a study of how the biggest 15 networks represented LGBT characters in their shows last season. They looked for shows that reflected “the lives of gay, bisexual and transgender people.” And, of course, they found that HBO did the best—with 42 percent of its prime-time programming hours devoted to this. Showtime, with shows like “The L Word” and ”The United States of Tara,” was next with a 26 percent. But once the study got to the more mainstream media, the numbers dropped significantly. Of the five major networks—ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and the CW—ABC ranked the highest with 24 percent. NBC had only eight percent, and CBS came in with a pathetic five percent. At first glance, these numbers don’t sound too terrible. But I’m going to go ahead and argue that things are a lot grimmer than they appear. Keep reading »

Amy Poehler Brings The Funny Back To SNL Weekend Update

Holy hilarity! Thursdays this fall just got funnier. “SNL” alum/comic genius Amy Poehler will return to her comedic anchor seat alongside Seth Meyers for “Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursdays.” My all-time favorite “SNL” skit took a hit when Tina Fey and Amy left the show, but the Thursday night special that began during the presidential election is back. And hopefully, the Poehler-punch will bring it back to its original level of awesomeness. “Weekend Update Thursdays” starts September 17, before the premieres of “Parks and Recreation” and “30 Rock.” If you squint hard enough, you can pretend that Amy and Tina are both behind the anchor’s desk, together again.

Anderson Cooper Prods Jillian Harris About Her Sexy Times

Anderson Cooper jumped right into his interview with ex-Bachelorette Jillian Harris on “Regis & Kelly” the other day with the juiciest question: “How many guys did you actually sleep with?” While Jillian, Kelly, and the audience gasp, Jillian’s beau, Ed, just sits there laughing … cause he probably wants to know, too. Though Anderson wasn’t the one who was giving oily massages and making out in hot tubs on national TV, I think it’s safe to say he wouldn’t be too thrilled if someone asked him about his sex life on air.
