Aretha Franklin made herself available to do satellite video interviews with TV outlets all around the country to promote her new album Aretha Franklin Takes on the Great Diva Classics and as you can see in this compilation video montage, she had a bit of difficulty hearing the interviewers on the other end. Ever the consummate pro, Aretha did her legendary best to endure talking to these peons. Trust me, this video will make your day. Please enjoy.

SO MUCH YES IT HURTS!
AHHHH! I have the best casting news to pass along today … Michelle Trachtenberg, the actress who played Dawn Summers on the long-running series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, has just been added to the cast of Sleepy Hollow on Fox. It’s unknown if Michelle will be featured in more than one episode but we do know that she will play First Lady Abigail Adams in an upcoming episode … which does sound limiting but I’ll take what I can get. Read on for more deets about this exciting piece of casting news. More »
With musical guest Iggy Azalea
Last month we learned that funnyman Jim Carrey would be returning to host Saturday Night Live this season and today we get to see his just-released promo videos for this weekend’s episode of SNL. Jim will be joined by Iggy Azalea as musical guest and because it will be the Hallowe’en episode, it promises to be scary … not funny … mostly because even when they try to be funny, SNL isn’t funny … so I’m thinkin’ they should go for scary.
Remember a couple of weeks ago when Sarah Jessica Parker hopped on new rumors about a reported third Sex and the City movie when she staged an impromptu photoshoot of her shoe line on the steps of the NYC apartment building that provided the facade for Carrie Bradshaw‘s home in Sex and the City? Well, it turns out that that impromptu photoshoot was actually an unauthorized photoshoot. The owners of the home have put up a chain across the steps of their building to keep fans from taking photos there … which is exactly what SJP did without asking. Chain or no chain, Sarah decided to stage her photoshoot anyways … and the home owners are now really pissed off. More »
It's easy to see why he got the part
Jason Momoa‘s audition tape for HBO’s Game of Thrones (which has been online for some time now) started making the rounds over the weekend and it’s so intense that I feel compelled to share it with all y’all. For the role of Khal Drogo, Momoa decided to show producers just how well he could play a character that speaks a different language … very forcefully. For the part, Momoa spoke the fictional language of Dothraki but for his audition, Jason busted out a battle cry of the Māori. Check out the video above and see the audition that won Jason Momoa his role on GoT.
LOL! You know Jill Zarin is PISSED!
At the start of this month, we heard a rumor that Bethenny Frankel had signed on to return for the next season of The Real Housewives of New York City on Bravo (the show that made her reality TV show superstar) but Frankel was quick to chime in on the rumors to muddy the waters and cast doubt on her return (as you may recall, she never actually said that she wasn’t returning but she did her best to make it sound like it was possible the the rumor was unfounded). Welp, today we learn that the guesswork is over … Bravo has released today a press release that formally announces Bethenny‘s return to RHONY next season … which is only the best news ever for the Bravo TV reality show.

This woman is incredible.
Yesterday, Trent hit me up on G-Chat asking if I’d watched the new episode of How To Get Away with Murder yet. When I told him I hadn’t seen it yet he wrote, “You’ll have to watch and keep an ear out for the line ‘he did things to my ass that made my eyes water.’” LMAO! I was on pins and needles waiting for that part, and I was not disappointed. But I was also shocked and excited by the other scene that everyone was talking about. PITNBr Devonte Antonio brought it up on the Scandal recap, and then I saw a story about it on People. Apparently, Viola Davis herself had pitched the idea to the show’s creator & writer Peter Nowalk.

Twerking is so Yesterday
Now that Twerking is SO OVER, it’s time for the world to become obsessed with a new dance … and so, Miley Cyrus is here to show us what the new dance is. On the Aussie morning TV show Sunrise, Miley sat down to talk about a range of topics … including the death of Twerking. At around the 6:30 mark of the video above, Miley shows us how to do the Nae Nae. I fully expect each and every one of you to bust this dance out at some point this weekend.

'The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks'
Last week we learned the AMAZING news that Twin Peaks is coming back with new episodes on Showtime in 2016 and today we learn even MORE great Twin Peaks news. It’s been a LONG time since Twin Peaks went off the air almost 25 years ago, therefore Peaks co-creator Mark Frost is releasing a book that will fill us in on what our fave Twin Peaks characters have been up to for the last two and half decades which will get us primed for the resumption of Twin Peaks on TV next year.

Season 4, Episode 4
I have been struggling a bit with my Scandal fandom over the last few weeks, but I really loved last night’s episode, “Like Father, Like Daughter.” We had an ah-mazingly exciting case for Olivia Pope & Associates, the drama that was Olivia finding herself back in the White House, and a very dark situation for those of firmly planted on Team Jake. Even though I don’t like what happened to our boo last night, I actually think it will help drive the season, and now that Jake is n trouble, I also think it might drive a wedge betwixt Liv and Fitz. So, ha! There! Yeah, no. I have issues. But not quite as many issues as Karen Grant who took her grief and really… um… made interesting choices therein (actually, I can totally relate… sort of… mmh, I’ve said too much).
