Neil Gaiman’s ‘American Gods’ Is Now Being Adapted For A Starz TV Series

Executive Produced by Bryan Fuller (!!!!!!!!!!!!)

OMG, do I have the BEST NEWS EVER for fans of Neil Gaiman‘s novel American Gods. Back in February we learned that plans were still very much in the works for the book to be adapted into a TV series after it was reported that the project had been picked up by Freemantle Productions. We knew at the time that the series would not be headed for HBO as was originally reported back in 2011 but, at the time of the report, no network was announced for the project. Today we learn that American Gods will be headed for the Starz cable network — and get this — it’s being executive produced by Bryan Fuller, the genius who brought us Pushing Daisies AND Hannibal! Woot!!! More »

Y'all Ain't Ready

A little while back there were rumors about a theme park based around The Hunger Games books and movies. When I first heard about this, I just kind of furrowed my brows in confusion. Really? A Hunger Games theme park? With, like, fun and stuff? Sounded strange. But now that it’s starting to sound like they are really going forward with it, I can’t help but get excited. I mean, this has to be a cool idea, and I’m sure there’s no real Hunger Games-esque violence with beautiful little Amandla Sternberg‘s dying. So yeah, I’m in. Click inside for more!

Everyone Is Getting This Toni Braxton Abortion/Autism Story Wrong

No, She Doesn't Think God Punished Her With An Autistic Child

There’s been a story going around for the past few days that really bothered me, and I’m glad I did a little research before writing about this. So, do you guys remembered when I partied with the Braxton sisters earlier in the year, and interviewed them (and it was all awesome and fancy)? Yes, me too. Well, one thing Toni Braxton told me was that her first reaction to her son’s autisim diagnosis had a sort of “juicy” story behind it. And she was right. Now that her memoir is out (Unbreak My Heart), everyone’s up in arms about some statements she made about her prior abortion, her God, and her son. But the story is being mis-reported and it’s pissing me off. Click inside for more!
