The show needs to be "refreshed"
After the mess that Fashion Police has become in the wake of Joan Rivers‘s death last year, Giuliana Rancic‘s offensive comments about Zendaya‘s hair and the departure of Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin, E! has decided that the show needs to be “refreshed” and will, therefore, put the show on hiatus until the fall. In an official press release announcement, expertly worded, E! manages to spin their decision to take Fashion Police off the air for half of this year and make it sound like a positive thing for the network. I mean, to be honest, it really is a good thing for E! to get FP off the air and worry about it months down the road when everyone will have mostly forgotten about what a shite show it’s been in the past few months.

Actor Miles Teller — who starred in the excellent film Whiplash last year, stars in the new Divergent Series movie Insurgent opening in theaters this weekend and will star as Reed Richards in the forthcoming Fantastic Four reboot movie this summer — made an appearance on The Tonight Show last night to talk about his new role as fighter Vinny Pazienza in a new biopic film titled Bleed for This. During his interview with host Jimmy Fallon, Miles shared a pair of before and after photos that show how ripped his body got for his new movie role. I mean, Miles Teller was pretty hot before but now he’s really hot … and ripped. Have a look below. More »
Plus, Madonna performs 'Joan of Arc' live
It is Madonna Week on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, as you may know, and today she will appear on the show with none other than pop’s brat prince Justin Bieber. Madonna‘s week long appearances on Ellen are meant to spark sales of her new album Rebel Heart (which, unfortunately for her, just landed at the #2 spot [behind the #1 Empire soundtrack] on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart). In addition to getting to spend time with Madonna, Justin appears on the show to promote his Comedy Central Roast which will air at the end of this month. For today’s fun on Ellen, Maddy and JB play a game of Never Have I Ever with DeGeneres … which you can watch below. More »
Contract Negotiations in Full Effect
Back in October, director David Lynch shocked the world with the thrilling news that his cult classic TV series Twin Peaks would be returning as a limited sequel series on Showtime in 2016. Since that time, it was revealed that a book will be coming out in the mean time that will bridge the story gap from when the show first went off the air to the start of the new Showtime episodes … and it was confirmed that lead actor Kyle MacLachlan will reprise his role as Special Agent Dale Cooper on the show. Today we learn the very troubling news that the Twin Peaks reboot may be in trouble after Lynch made comments about the show at an event over the weekend. According to David Lynch, pre-production on the show has stalled because he still does not have a contract with Showtime to make the show … sooooooooooo … no contract, no knew eps. More »

Last week The CW released a video promo for The Flash that highlights all of the baddie villains that are yet to make appearances on the show in the coming weeks. Over the weekend, a new promo trailer was shown at the PaleyFest panel discussion for The Flash which has just been made available for viewing online. As you can see above, there is still a LOT of action yet to come as the final episodes of the first season of The Flash head our way. As I have said repeatedly since the show debuted last fall, The Flash is one of my fave TV shows right now and this trailer only fortifies that fact (Gorilla Grodd!!!!!). This has been a really great first season thus far … and it looks like the show is only going to keep getting better.

"I never said I was Joan Rivers ... I’m just trying to be me"
Kathy Griffin only quit as co-host of Fashion Police on E! just a few days ago but today she went on the interview circuit to talk about her reasons for quitting. As you may recall, Kathy posted a lengthy message on her Twitter profile announcing some of the reasons for quitting Fashion Police (saying she didn’t want “her comedy to be used to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference“) but today paid a visit to The Howard Stern Show and The View to discuss the matter further. In her chat with Stern, Kathy confesses that she probably shouldn’t have taken the FP gig in the first place. In her chat with ladies on The View, Kathy flat out calls Fashion Police an “anti-feminist … dog pile”. Click below to hear and read Kathy‘s scathing comments about Fashion Police. More »

'AHS: Hotel' begins production this summer
Way back in November of 2013, before the most recent 4th season of American Horror Story went into production, AHS lead actress Jessica Lange explained why she had decided to leave the show after 4 seasons. Last night during the PaleyFest panel discussion for American Horror Story: Freak Show (sponsored by The Paley Center for Media at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, CA), Lange officially confirmed that Yes, she is leaving AHS for good. A couple of my friends attended last night’s AHS: Freak Show PaleyFest panel discussion and they inform me that some of the actors were drunk on stage … from the look of some of the photos in the gallery presented here, I think that fact is very plainly obvious. You may recall that we learned last month that Lady Gaga will be joined the upcoming 5th season of American Horror Story: Hotel but it was revealed last night that actor Matt Bomer will also be joining the cast.
