Pebbles wants MORE money from TLC
After VH1 aired CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story last year, we first learned that TLC‘s former manager Perri Pebbles Reid was none too happy about how she was portrayed in the biopic movie. It’s taken her about a year to decide that she’s so unhappy with the way she was portrayed that she has decided to file a $40 million dollar lawsuit against the group on allegations that they defamed her good name. Yep. She sure did. More »
"Bow down to the goddess"
A week ago we got to see the first teaser video for the forthcoming Lifetime made-for-TV biopic Aaliyah: Princess of R&B and today we get to see the TV movie’s first official trailer. Honestly, this trailer is painfully short and it doesn’t really so much actual footage from the movie but it is longer than the quick teaser we got to see last week and it does show us how much actress Alexandra Shipp looks almost exactly like Aaliyah … so I think it’s worth your time. Click below to see this minute-long trailer and see what you think. More »

'The T Word'
Laverne Cox has had an incredible year. She covered TIME Magazine, got an Emmy nomination for her performance as Sophia Burset on Orange is the New Black, and even got interviewed by ME! The actress shows no signs of slowing, and I was excited to learn that she’s bringing a documentary to MTV on transgender youth. Click inside for more!

Most accurate casting choice ever?
This is such awesome news, but first lemme make a confession. I had never seen the Grumpy Cat video until yesterday. I read this casting announcement when PITNBr Iris shared it on Facebook and I was like, Okay. I should probably watch this thing, finally. And it all makes sense now—I was cracking up over that permanent frown! And, I’ll admit it, I’m totally gonna watch Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever now… mainly because Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza has just been announced as the voice of Tardar Sauce (and it’s not a movie I’d have to pay for, anymore).

Last week we learned that Lifetime will be premiering a biopic made-for-TV movie based on the life of the late Brittany Murphy. Today we get to see the just-released first trailer for The Brittany Murphy Story, courtesy of Buzzfeed. As you can see above, this biopic movie will cover her entire career (including her role in Clueless, one of my all-time favorite movies) leading up to her surprising and mysterious death. Lifetime is really killing the biopic game these days. Earlier today we got to see the first 5 minutes of the Saved By The Bell biopic movie which will debut on Labor Day. Then, on September 6, The Brittany Murphy Story will premiere on Lifetime.
Hey, why not?
We already know that Lifetime TV is producing biopic made-for-TV movies on the lives of Aaliyah and Whitney Houston, an an unauthorized biopic of sorts about the cast of Saved By The Bell. But did you know that they are also releasing a biopic movie about the life of Brittany Murphy? ‘Tis true. The Brittany Murphy Story will star actress Amanda Fuller as Brittany and will premiere on Lifetime on September 6 … which is less than a month away. Clearly, Lifetime has the lock on the hastily put together made-for-TV biopic movie game. Dang. More »
