And Creator Mike Kelley Has Already Left?!
It looks like a lot of changes are coming to one of our favorite shows, and maybe that’s a good thing. This past year we had a blast recapping every episode from the second season of ABC‘s hit show Revenge. But there were definitely some disappointments in the series, especially if you compared it to a totally captivating first season. Apparently, producers picked up on some of these problems, and big changes are coming to the show. Ashley Madekwe (who plays Ashley) will be written off of the show at some point next season, and the original creator of Revenge (Mike Kelley) has already left. Click inside to learn more.

Pure - Fire - Rise
Back in March we learned that the brilliant UK TV series Skins will return for one more final season and that season will focus on three stories that center on three returning characters from the series. Skins Pure will focus on Cassie (from seasons 1-2, played by Hannah Murray), Skins Fire will focus on Effy (from seasons 1-4, played by Kaya Scodelario) and Skins Rise will focus on Cook (from seasons 3-4, played by Jack O’Connell). Today we get to see newly released promo images from the forthcoming 7th season of Skins that each feature the main character from the three stories that will make up the final season. Yeah, that’s a lot to keep track of, ain’t it? More »

"[I]t's a network thing ... a big thing"
It would appear that Courtney Love‘s recent emergence when she offered help/advice to Amanda Bynes earlier this week was just the precursor to the reintroduction of C. Love into the public consciousness. Courtney paid a visit to The Opie & Anthony Show on SiriusXM to discuss an upcoming club tour and it sounds like she inadvertently suggested that she may become a judge on American Idol. Last week we learned that Jennifer Hudson is “in talks” about signing on as an Idol judge and earlier today we learned officially that both Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj would not be returning as judges. In the interview clip you can watch above, Courtney reveals that she will be appearing on a big network show that she cannot yet talk about. The interviewers suggest that she might be talking about American Idol or The Voice … Courtney denies that she will be on The Voice but she does NOT deny (or confirm) the Idol suggestion. Check out the clip above and see what you glean from her comments. Do you think it’s possible that Courtney Love might become a judge on American Idol?!
They're Both Planning To Focus On New Music
A little while back we learned that American Idol would be revamping its image– and trying to gain back many of the viewers it lost– with some new blood at the judge’s table. As it turned out, having big-name stars like Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj did very little in the grand scheme of ratings, and we heard rumors about them wanting to bring on former Idol stars as judges. The rumors were confirmed when Jennifer Hudson officially signed on as a judge for next season, and now we’re learning that Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj are officially out. Click inside for more!
My Two Faves!
It’s no secret that I’m Scandal-obsessed, but– aside from Kerry Washington– Elisabeth Moss plays my absolute favorite role on television right now. Friggen Peggy from Mad Men. Sigh. Love her, love everything about that role, Team Peggy fa life, etc., etc. So I was pretty psyched when I saw that both women were featured in The Hollywood Reporter‘s new spread on TV’s Hottest Drama Actresses. Kerry and Elisabeth join Connie Britton (Nashville), Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad), Kate Mara (House of Cards), and Monica Potter (Parenthood). The roundtable interview was really funny (the women talk about their worst jobs, post-baby auditions, and all that good stuff). Go HERE to read the full interview and peep the gallery for some great photos from the shoot!
Her Rep says It Ain't Happening :(
Earlier in the week we learned of a RUMOR that producers on American Idol are looking to bring back former Idol winners/contestants to serve as judges on the upcoming new season of the show. A day later, it was widely reported that Jennifer Hudson was either “close to signing on” or she had “already signed on” as judge. Along with reports of J. Hud‘s Idol return, it was also reported that Kelly Clarkson was also being courted and is, allegedly, “close to signing on” as well. Welp, today we learn that that is not true. A rep for Clarkson told The Hollywood Reporter that she is not judging the show. Boo! Now, not only do we know that Kelly won’t be back but it also throws into doubt whether or not J. Hud will return as judge. Hmmm. More »

"I love you Donatella but it popped, darling!"
Oh man … Amanda Bynes and her insanity are trying to eat up all the attention today but there are other things going on in the world, you know. Pop Queen Mariah Carey made an appearance on Good Morning America earlier today and things didn’t go very well for her. Not only did she accidentally exclaim Oh, shit! live on air but she also suffered a wardrobe malfunction when her Versace dress popped open in the back while she was LIVE on camera. You have to watch the video below … it’s effing hilarious. My fave part of the clip is when Mimi tries to blame Donatella Versace for the malfunction! LOL!!! More »
Word Is, She's Already Signed The Deal!
American Idol fans, get psyched! A couple of days ago Trent reported that rumors were flying about an American Idol judging panel makeover that could be a game-changer. Former American Idol stars could be coming back as judges, and lots of folks thought this was a brilliant idea. The once-popular show has been suffering greatly in the ratings department, and producers are looking to breathe some new life into the competition. Enter, Jennifer Hudson? It’s a possibility! The former contestant is reportedly in talks to become a judge. Click inside to learn more!
Star Trek: Into Darkness was released in theaters last week and altho the movie has been getting a mostly positive response from viewers, not everyone is pleased with the film. One of the criticisms of Into Darkness falls squarely on the shoulders of director J.J. Abrams for choosing to include a gratuitous shot of actress Alice Eve (who plays a brilliant scientist in the film) in her underwear. To make up for this supposed infraction, Abrams shared on Conan last night a gratuitous “deleted” scene of actor Benedict Cumberbatch (who plays the film’s villain) in the shower. I’d say that the release of this scene makes up for his crime, don’t you? Click the embed above to see what all the fuss is about :D
Corny but Cute
Jennifer Aniston is set to co-host The Ellen DeGeneres Show today and to promote her appearance on the show she filmed a pre-taped skit that reunited Jen with a couple of her former Friends co-stars. The set up for the skit featured Jen paying a visit to Matthew Perry‘s home to ask for co-hosting advice and then … COMEDY ENSUES. Well, honestly … the skit isn’t all that funny … but it is cute. Check out the embed above to see this mini-Friends reunion for yourselves … see what you think. Who knows, you may get a chuckle or two out of the clip. Enjoy!
