And it's called 'Christian Mingle'
PITNB reader Rachel gave me the head’s up that Mean Girls actress Lacey Chabert is starring in a new movie called Christian Mingle which is based on the dating website Christian Mingle and my head almost exploded from all the weird awesomeness. First, I’m really quite impressed that someone came up with the idea to make a movie based on Christian Mingle. Second, I’m thrilled that Lacey won the lead role in this awesome-sounding movie. Honestly, the premise sounds more like a movie you’d see on the Hallmark Channel but still, I’m intrigued. Lacey‘s character is NOT a Christian but she’s so thirsty to find a man that she pretends to be a Christian on Christian Mingle and then meets and falls in love with a Christian guy named Christian (OK, I made that part up but wouldn’t this movie be better if his name was Christian?!) and she has to keep pretending to be a Christian to keep him until his suspicious mother ferrets out the LIE that she is NOT a Christian. My guess is that the guy, being the good Christian that he is, decides to love her anyways and Lacey‘s character becomes a Christian in the end and the couple proceed to mingle … in the Biblical way (but only after marriage). DOESN’T THAT SOUND LIKE A MOVIE YOU’D LIKE TO SEE? I’m not even kidding, I deffo plan to see this movie. It hits theaters this month so … who wants to come with?
Early last month we learned that Dexter star Michael C. Hall will star in the Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch when he takes over for Andrew Rannells after his limited run in the show ends later this month (Rannells, as you may know, took over from Neil Patrick Harris who originated the role on Broadway and won a Tony Award for his performance). Today we get our first look at MCH in character as Hedwig in the just-released promo poster and photo below. I am SO excited that MCH is taking the lead in Hedwig and I am in LOVE with this first look at him in character!! HAVE A LOOK! More »
“Look for Louise from St. Louis”
WAAAAY back in 2010, we first heard rumors that a third Sex and the City movie was coming our way but after a few years of no news and certainly no movement on SaTC 3, it seemed like hopes for a third feature film installment of Sex and the City were dashed for good. THEN in February of this year, both Sarah Jessica Parker and SaTC executive producer Michael Patrick King starting talking about the possibility of making the third movie after all. Today we learn from actress Jennifer Hudson (who co-starred in the first Sex and the City movie) that she is in “talks” to star in Sex and the City 3 … which suggests that plans are deffo in the works for a third film. To this news I say, PRAISE JEBUS! HALLELUJAH!!! More »
The Rock to star?!
Yesterday we learned that the mobile phone video game Angry Birds is being adapted into a feature-length film and today we learn that another well-known property is also getting the film treatment. The ’90s TV series Baywatch is reportedly being adapted into a feature film and it sounds like Dwayne The Rock Johnson will star as the lead. David Hasselhoff, as you may know, was the lead star of the Baywatch TV series so it sounds like producers are going for a different feel for the movie version.

Us Weekly magazine is reporting today that former reality TV star Bethenny Frankel, who found fame as one of the original castmembers of The Real Housewives of NYC on Bravo is returning to the show for the upcoming 7th season. Bethenny left RHONY to star in her own reality TV show called Bethenny Getting Married? which became Bethenny Ever After which focused on her engagement then marriage to her now-estranged ex-husband Jason Hoppy, then she got her own daytime talk show titled Bethenny which was cancelled earlier this year.

Sources say it's almost a done deal
This summer I finally, finally joined the rest of the dedicated TV watchers, and ordered HBO. I did this for one reason—to binge-watch True Detective, because I was sick of hearing about this greatest show on Earth, without any true knowledge of its amazingness. I watched the first episode way too late at night, and decided I was going to have to re-watch the next day. But then I got distracted by my newfound HBO glory, and ended up bingeing on Girls, Mildred Pierce, and those amazing Louis C.K. comedy specials. So yeah, I have some catching up to do, but I’m still excited about this show! And we have some new casting buzz for Season Two (we already know Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn are on board), so click inside for more!
Rumor has it, it's almost a done deal
Last week we learned that E! has made the decision to move forward with their show Fashion Police without Joan Rivers and today we learn that Joan‘s BFF Kathy Griffin may be closing in on a deal to take her place on the show. Even tho the casting hasn’t yet been taken up officially, The Hollywood Reporter magazine is reporting that Kathy is high on the list of replacements. Honestly, I can’t think of anyone better to step into Joan‘s Fashion Police shoes than Kathy Griffin. More »

Hot for Teacher
Back in July we learned that singer/actress Courtney Love was added to the cast of Sons of Anarchy and earlier this month, we saw her at the Hollywood premiere event for the 7th and final season of SoA. Today we get to see Courtney doing actual work for the show. C. Love was spotted on the SoCal set of Sons of Anarchy this week filming her scenes for the show. As you may know, Courtney will play a school teacher on the show and in the gallery presented here, we get to see what Love looks like in character. I tossed in a photo of actress Katey Sagal, who was also spotted on set, as well because she just rules. Last night’s episode of SoA was insane! This season is so good already and we’re only 3 eps in. It would appear we have some time to wait before Courtney mades her debut on the show but she’s coming … she is deffo coming to SoA.
