Be prepared to roll your eyes...

She just announced that she’s written a new version of the story with swapped genders. Weird, right?

The AUTHORIZED Toni Braxton Story
Lifetime TV has made a name for itself by producing cheesy made-for-TV movies that have, in recent months, focused on telling unauthorized tales of beloved TV shows like Saved By The Bell, Full House, Beverly Hills, 90210 and Melrose Place. Today we learn that they have partnered with singer Toni Braxton to produce an authorized biopic film that will be based on her 2014 memoir Un-Break My Heart. With Toni executive producing the film, there is a slight chance that the production value of this particular biopic TV movie might be elevated above the rest of Lifetime’s TV movie programming but … I’m not holding my breath. But, in all honesty, if Toni is cool with letting Lifetime tell her story, I’m totally cool with it, too. More »
The Queen of Xmas strikes again
As August draws to a close, the time has come to start talking about … Xmas? It seems like the impact of Xmas starts earlier and earlier with each passing year, which is why it’s no surprise that today we learn that Mariah Carey will be releasing her first children’s book this holiday season. Mimi has partnered with Random House publishing to adapt her hugely successful holiday song All I Want For Christmas Is You into a picture book for children. As you will learn below, this children’s book uses the lyrics to Mariah‘s song to tell the story of a little girl (who looks like a cartoon version of MC) who hopes to get a puppy for Xmas. Yes, it is as cute as it sounds. Click below and see for yourselves. More »
Great news, Fifty Shades of Grey fans … author E.L. James has announced that she is releasing a new Fifty Shades book, a re-telling of the original book from Christian Grey‘s point of view. Bad news, non fans of Fifty Shades of Grey … there’s another book on the way. You may recall that author Stephenie Meyer also wanted to cash in on the hype that was generated by her Twilight book series by writing a new version of her first book from the perspective of sparkly vampire Edward Cullen, so it looks like James is wanting to do the same. This new Fifty Shades book will be titled simply Grey … are you excited? More »
From acclaimed British filmmaker Peter Greenaway
As you all should know by now, one of my favorite movies of all time ever is Django Unchained. I could never pick a favorite scene, but I really love the moment when Christoph Waltz‘s character breaks it to DiCaprio (Mr. Candie) that one of his favorite authors—Alexandre Dumas—is a black man. Before I saw the movie I had no idea, and soon found myself all up on Dumas‘ Wikipedia page. The beloved French author of The Three Musketeers and The Count Of Monte Cristo had a fascinating life and soon we’re going to see some of it on the big screen. Click inside for more!
