'The Untitled Michael Sam Project' is dunzo!
Earlier this week it was announced that Michael Sam agreed to be filmed for a new docu-series on Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN channel in order to document the real life events that will take place as he begins his new life as St. Louis Rams football player. Today we learn that those plans have been put on hold. As soon as the project was announced, many people (PITNB readers included) voiced concern that a docu-series of this nature might prove to be a distraction not only for Sam but for his football teammates as well. It sounds like Michael Sam took that criticism to heart and decided NOT to move forward with the project … at least, not any time soon. More »
The day I long feared was coming … has come. The CW has announced which of its shows have been renewed for more seasons and which shows have been cancelled. It is with a very sad, very heavy heart that I must pass along the news that The CW has decided to cancel The Carrie Diaries. I, personally, am crushed by this news. I loved the show from the very start and loved each episode of the two seasons that we got. The addition of Lindsay Gort as Samantha Jones last season gave me hope that the show would live on for a third season but, alas, it wasn’t meant to be. And so, I have to give a sad Peace the Spork Out to The Carrie Diaries with a heavy dose of BOOOOOOOO! More »

The art of letting go?
So … take this report with a huge grain of salt but according to OK! magazine, Mariah Carey is reportedly ready to “pull the plug” on her marriage to Nick Cannon. HMMM. As you may recall, the Mr. & Mrs. celebrated their wedding anniversary just last week and all indications were that things are A-OK in the couple’s marriage. But this new report makes the bold claim that Mimi is ready to dump Nick and fly free again. I can’t say that I believe a word of this new rumor but … HMMMM. More »

The one about the anniversary
It was 10 years ago last night that the series finale of Friends aired on NBC to an audience of 52 million people. Since that time, the various Friends actors — Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston — have all gone off to do their own projects on TV, film and/or on the theater stage, leaving fans clamoring for some sort of Friends reunion. As you may recall, Courteney reiterated, yet again, on The Late Show with David Letterman last month that the cast of Friends will never, ever get back together again so, sadly, today’s 10 year anniversary of the end of Friends will not be celebrated with any sort of reunion. I guess all we have to go by are our own memories of one of the greatest sitcoms of our generation. More »

Cheaters never win ... for long
Ben Affleck got busted in a Las Vegas casino last night for essentially cheating while playing blackjack. The security team at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino says they spied Affleck counting cards while gambling in their casino and while the practice isn’t illegal, per se, it’s definitely not sanctioned by casinos … particularly because they tend to lose a lot of money to adept card counting players. As a result, Ben Affleck has been BANNED FOR LIFE from gambling at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas, NV. More »

But her press rep claims overwise
Without question, April 2014 has been actress Naya Rivera‘s worst month ever. First her engagement to Big Sean came to an end, then he allegedly stole shizz from her home. Then we heard that she was fired from Glee (tho, her publicist denies the firing) and today we hear that she has been dropped from her record label Columbia Records (again, her rep denies the dunzoness). Even if these reports of her firing turn out not to be true, it still isn’t a good week for the young actress that she keeps getting plagued with these reports. Ugh. More »

Fox will not confirm OR deny
Yesterday we heard rumors that Naya Rivera has been fired from Glee after she reportedly got into a big time argument with the show’s producers (tho, others claim the firing came after Naya got into an altercation of some sort with Lea Michele). Today we hear from Rivera‘s press rep who categorically denies that Naya has been fired from the show. The folks at Fox have refused to confirm or deny reports that Naya has been fired but they do say that casting decisions for the show have not been finalized yet so … I guess it could go either way.

And it's apparently NOT Lea Michele's fault
After reports surfaced of a “major altercation” between actresses Lea Michele and Naya Rivera on the set of Glee comes word today that Naya has reportedly been fired from the show. Apparently, the report claims, the on set “altercation” that took place this month went down between Naya and the show’s producers, not Lea at all. As a result, the decision was made to boot Naya from the season finale episode … and the show from here on out. HMMM. More »
After almost 2 years, the couple decides to call it quits
It is with a heavy heart that I must pass along the news that Prince Harry and his girlfriend of almost 2 years, Cressida Bonas, have decided to end their romantic affiliation. While I don’t like to revel in the unhappiness of others, I can’t help but be a tiny bit excited by the fact that Prince Harry is now back on the market as a single man once again. After Harry broke up with Chelsea Davy back in 2010, he started dating Cressida leading many to believe that he was ready to settle down. But, alas, Harry‘s fairytale romance with Bonas just wasn’t meant to be. They’re dunzo, y’all. More »
"I’ve got to not blame anyone else"

Today we are hearing from Chris Martin himself who is taking full blame for the end of his marriage to Gwyneth. In a new interview with BBC Radio 1, Martin explains some of the circumstances that caused the end of his marriage and publicly takes blame for the break-up. More »
