It sounds like the drama on Wisteria Lane really did occur behind the scenes.
Marc Cherry, who created the ABC series Desperate Housewives, wrote a letter supporting Felicity Huffman- who played Lynette Scavo on the show- as she awaits her sentence for the college admissions scandal (she’s looking at one month behind bars).
Cherry’s letter mentioned that Huffman and the rest of the cast dealt with a co-star who was difficult to work with, but Huffman was always professional and cordial.
“Everyone tried their darndest to get along with this woman over the course of the show. It was impossible,” Cherry wrote without naming said woman. “And things went from bad to worse. Felicity still insisted on saying, ‘Good morning’ to this actress, even though she knew she wouldn’t get a response. I found out about this and asked Felicity about it. She smiled and said, ‘Just because that woman’s determined to be rude, doesn’t mean she can keep me from being polite.’”
Just recently, Eva Longoria who played Gaby Solis, mentioned that this “rude” actress was bullying her and Huffman would always stick up for her.
The real question is, who is this bully co-star? Given what Cherry wrote, we have more information, which is that it’s a woman. But who could it be?
The contestants are likely Teri Hatcher and Nicolette Sheridan. Marcia Cross seemed to be good friends with Longoria, so it’s likely not her. But we’re looking at the rest of that group! For all we know, maybe it was another featured actress.
Maybe she’ll come clean, but for now, the media is focused on what’s next for Huffman and how long she’ll be in prison for- if at all.
A group of hidden singers are about to shine on the new season of The Masked Singer and the judges are in tears- who will the singers be?!
A new promo was released that shows all the unknowns in bizarre costumes- including a panda, skeleton, flower, and a…thing. But one thing is for sure, we’re all in for something spectacular.
Nicole Scherzinger will by crying as one of the singers blows her away with a soulful tune. And Jenny McCarthy is just as enthusiastic as ever as she tries to figure out who’s who.
Check out the promo below:
The question is though, which celebrities would we like to see unveiled on the new season? The possibilities are endless since the show dabbles with big names who aren’t necessarily on the A-list (at least not anymore), but popular enough that we still care about them!
Here are some contenders who would be a great fit for the show:
The first season had several football stars so why not add one who became notoriously known for his sports life as well as his former girlfriend Lindsey Duke- who actually became a bigger deal than he did.
It’s been a while since we heard from the popular comedian and this would be a fun comeback. Plus, he has a pretty distinct voice that audiences will recognize. Seriously, trying to find out who the masked singer is, is hard!
The judges guessed Lindsay a few times last season. Maybe they’ll get it right this time. Even though Lindsay is not taken seriously (and she still wouldn’t be if she made an appearance), we could all agree that the girl might still have her sense of humor.
Who do you think should make an appearance on The Masked Singer Season 2? Sound off in the comments!
It’s Lizzie’s time to shine back in the spotlight…while Zoey is hiding out in the dark!
Ever since word got out that Lizzie McGuire was getting a reboot and will be starring Hilary Duff again, another former teen star had something to say about it.
Jamie Lynn Spears, who became a TV hit for her starring role on Zoey 101, took to Instagram on Tuesday to say how she felt about Lizzie returning to TV. She posted a video with scenes from Lizzie McGuire that played the famous song “This is What Dreams Are Made of.” But the video cuts short with Spears’ character Zoey looking shocked and upset while the Justin Bieber song “That Should Be Me” plays in the background.
Spears captioned the video, “When Zoey heard about Lizzie’s reboot…#Zoey101 #SoundOn”
Well, Jamie, it wouldn’t hurt to look into a Zoey 101 reboot either! Right?
Meanwhile, Duff opened up on the Lizzie reboot and how happy she is to see where everyone will end up.
“I think there’s a lot of pressure involved with pleasing the fans that are so opinionated, which I love so much, and I have similar strong opinions on where people ended up, what got her to New York, who’s still in her life and who isn’t, her job, her personal journey,” she said.
Demi Burnett is making an admirable name for herself being in the first same-sex relationship that Bachelor in Paradise has ever seen.
On Monday, E! News shared an interview with the reality star who couldn’t stop gushing over the moment she saw her girlfriend Kristian Haggerty on the beach in the last episode. She said the moment was unexpected and “crazy.”
“I’d never felt something like that in my whole body,” Burnett said. “I thought I was leaving. I was ready to leave, so whenever I saw her, it was just a beautiful moment, and I was really impressed by how they captured it.”
Burnett then revealed that she wanted Haggerty to stay with her on the show although her girlfriend isn’t the biggest fan of being on TV. But she was willing to make Burnett happy. And it sounds like they both have some conflicts coming up in future episodes.
“I honestly just took it as it came at me and processed through it right then and there. And the most important thing that I wanted to focus on was the relationship and the communication that I was having with Kristian, so I had to prioritize that over all the other things going on in my head,” Burnett said.
Since this is the first same-sex couple on the TV show, predictions spell out a happy ending for the sake of audiences rooting for equality. So here’s hoping that any drama these two deal with, it will be solved with love!
Oh! My! God! Friends is coming to the movies for three nights this fall and we couldn’t be more excited. After the success of I Love Lucy coming to theaters for Lucille Ball’s birthday on August 6, it sounds like a great idea to bring more classic TV shows to the moves. This gives fans more opportunities to laugh to their favorite moments on television while experiencing the joy with other fans sharing moments together.
The question is though- which episodes are going to air for the Friends celebration?
It was announced that 12 episodes would be shown (which is way more than I Love Lucy!). So which ones will they be? It’s too soon to know, but here are the ones that we can only hope will be shown!
The One With the Blackout
The gang is trapped in the dark during a blackout while Ross is about to confess his love to Rachel. In what was supposed to be a romantic setting, a cat jumps onto Ross and he tries to fight it off while the others are joyfully singing and being totally oblivious to the hysterical attack that’s happening behind them. Wouldn’t it be great to see this moment at the movies with all the other fans who can’t stop chuckling?
The One Where Ross Finds Out
“You’re over me? When were you…under me?” This episode had some great dialogue, but it was the moment at the end when Ross kisses Rachel in one of the most passionate moments of the series. It would be great to see this scene with everyone in the theater applauding and cheering all around.
The One With the Prom Video
Another big Ross and Rachel episode that ought to end with more cheers. “See? He’s her lobster!”
The One With the Giant Poking Device
Not even Chandler and Janice’s break-up scene could make this episode less funny! When the gang thinks that Ugly Naked Guy is dead, they create a poking stick to see if he’ll move only to find out he’s fine….”and yet, we’re still poking him…”
The One With the Football
The trophy in the form of a troll, the Dutch girl, Phoebe flashing Chandler and Rachel’s epic catch would be nothing short of perfect. “Cheater Cheater Compulsive Eater!”
The One With Phoebe’s Uterus
Only because of one number that gets said numerous times.
The One With the Embryos
Surprisingly, this episode is not called The One With the Trivia Game. Phoebe’s time at the clinic is pretty bland compared to the epic game the others play in a bet to win the girls’ apartment. “He’s a transpons-transponster!”
The One With All the Thanksgivings
The holiday that made a majority of the friends’ greatest memories is what made the show so special. And it all comes down to the time Monica accidentally cut off Chandler’s toe and then stuffing the turkey on her head causing Chandler to say “I love you.”
The One Where Everybody Finds Out
Everyone has officially found out about Chandler and Monica’s romance (Ross actually doesn’t find out till the very end of the episode). When Phoebe tries to mess with Chandler by pretending she’s interested in him, the game of Who Can Break Who the Fastest becomes one iconic journey the series has ever given us.
The One With the Routine
Ross and Monica’s ridiculously fun dance routine on New Year’s Eve is something that every Friends fan should witness on the big screen. “Trouble With Boys” will always be associated with our favorite brother-sister performance.
The One With Unagi
“Ahh…salmon skin roll.” Ross and his fascination to spread awareness to Phoebe and Rachel after they take a self-defense class is so bizarre. And it gets more hilarious as the three of them play cat-and-mouse.
The Last One
It may be one of the most heartbreaking episodes of the series, but it’s what concludes the show we will know and love forever. Throughout the laughter, we can smile through our tears as we get a glimpse of the apartment one last time.
It’s like Jason Vorhees is back except he has an entirely new look!
On Monday, the new teaser for the upcoming season of American HorrorStory was released and it looks campy as always. In fact, it looks campier than all the previous seasons. But that’s convenient since this season takes place at Camp Redwood.
The new season takes on a bunch of young looking adults who take a trip to a camp only to find out they’re being attacked by some strange lunatic. Sound familiar? Maybe a ski mask might appear?
Not this time. The trailer definitely has Friday the 13th qualities, but it will have its own original storyline.
The clip shows the campers partying in their cars as they head over for their summer vacay. As they pass the welcome sign, it looks like they missed the back side that says “Beware.” Things take an even darker turn when it turns out there’s a dark figure tagging along with the gang underneath the car and holding a knife! And with the way everything turns up, it definitely looks like it’s going to be one bloody summer.
Check it out below.
American Horror Story: 1984 premieres on Wednesday, September 18 on FX.
There’s been speculation about a Gossip Girl reunion for years. Will it ever happen?
On Monday, E! News posted an interview with Chace Crawford who was known as one of the show’s most prominent characters- in the sense that you either loved him or hated him. Let’s be real, Nate Archibald was boring.
Crawford is now playing a superhero in the new Amazon Prime series The Boys, which sounds like a giant leap for the actor ever since he left the Upper East Side.
“We’re kinda flipping it on its head, and these superheroes are essentially the bad guys and doing all these corrupt things,” Crawford said. “I think that it’s fun, and it doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s not like these altruistic superheroes trying to save the world. You kinda watch the show and you’re like, what is going on?”
As far as making an appearance in a Gossip Girl reunion, it could happen. But let’s just hope it happens soon since all those kids are growing up and moving on.
“I always say I’d be open to it. I’m definitely a little bit more excited about this show right now but I would love to see everyone again, and if they could somehow figure out a away to make it work, I would love to do it,” Crawford said. “But we’re getting old now, we’re getting up there.”
This is Us is about to take its storylines to entirely new levels when it premieres this fall.
On Wednesday, E! News released an interview with Chrissy Metz who plays Kate on the NBC series. One of the last things we saw in Kate’s storyline was watching her gave birth to her and Toby’s son, Jack, named after the dad we all know and love. But the baby was born prematurely, which gave a lot of precautions for how Kate and Toby were going to take care of him.
Metz revealed that some drama might go down for the couple now that they have a baby to look after.
“We’re going to see Kate and Toby co-parenting and how/if that will change the dynamic in their relationship,” the actress said.
Little Jack’s health problems will likely continue for a while and things will not be easy for his parents. We can definitely expect a lot of emotional feels and Metz is looking forward to what’s to come.
“What I’m excited about is it’s unexpected, but also really important in the way that Dan and the writers have orchestrated Kate and Toby and Jack,” she said.
Metz also mentioned what a huge fan she is of the writing.
“I’m an audience member on the show that I’m on,” she said. “I know that sounds silly, but…it’s one of the best shows on television. The writing is ridiculous.”
This is Us Season 4 premieres on Tuesday, September 24 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
It was announced on Wednesday that the guilty pleasure series is getting a reboot. Surprisingly, this didn’t start out as a rumor or as something “in the works.” It just happened pretty miraculously.
The show has a 10-episode order so far and will be on HBO Max. Not a bad place for a salacious series.
The reboot will take on a group of new elite teenagers who do pretty much what they always do- look super hot but do terrible things to each other while living the disgustingly superficial life of New York City. Sounds exciting, but will it be worth it?
There will be a lot of comparing to the original so fans of the series are going to want it to truly live up to its potential. It won’t be easy to find the ideal Serena or Dan type of characters.
But it may not be a bad idea to find someone with a gorgeous yet evil look for Blair. Leighton Meester may have had queen bee energy, but someone else could reign with true terror this time around. If these kids are going to do bad things, then they might as well go all out.
It probably won’t be the exact characters, but the new ones will take the spots that the originals came from. So it wouldn’t be a bad idea to switch some things up. After all, the mysterious blogger was all about drama.
It shouldn’t be drama this time. It needs nastiness, vengeance and horrible, horrible things. Then perhaps this reboot will do its time.
It was announced on Tuesday that the suicide scene in the first season finale of 13 Reason Why is going to be edited. It’s a huge mistake.
Netflix released a statement about the decision to make changes to one of the most gripping scenes in TV history.
“We’ve heard from many young people that 13 Reasons Why encouraged them to start conversations about difficult issues like depression and suicide and get help—often for the first time,” the statement reads. “As we prepare to launch season three later this summer, we’ve been mindful about the ongoing debate around the show. So on the advice of medical experts, including Dr. Christine Moutier, chief medical officer at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, we’ve decided with creator Brian Yorkey and the producers of 13 Reasons Why to edit the scene in which Hannah takes her own life from season one.”
“It was our hope, in making 13 Reasons Why into a television show, to tell a story that would help young viewers feel seen and heard, and encourage empathy in all who viewed it, much as the bestselling book did before us. Our creative intent in portraying the ugly, painful reality of suicide in such graphic detail in season one was to tell the truth about the horror of such an act, and make sure no one would ever wish to emulate it,” Yorkey said in a statement. “But as we ready to launch season three, we have heard concerns about the scene from Dr. Christine Moutier at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and others, and have agreed with Netflix to re-edit it. No one scene is more important than the life of the show, and its message that we must take better care of each other. We believe this edit will help the show do the most good for the most people while mitigating any risk for especially vulnerable young viewers.”
Here’s an important part of that statement: “Our creative intent in portraying the ugly, painful reality of suicide in such graphic detail in season one was to tell the truth about the horror of such an act…”
That’s one (of about 13) of the reasons why it was important to show the frightening details of that suicide scene- to show viewers that suicide is harrowing. It’s scary. The idea of it happening to children is especially gutting.
But that’s just it. It does happen. And it’s happening every day.
The details should not be hidden, especially from a TV show. These details need to be exposed so we can understand the shocking nature of it. And the scene on the show really went out to spread awareness of what suicide really is.
Upon watching this scene, there is that horrible feeling of dread for what’s to come. Hannah is in her bathtub with tears falling from her eyes and slowly pulling out the razor blades knowing it all comes down to this. And we all know where this is going. After all, we knew from the get-go that Hannah kills herself. That was kind of the purpose of the show.
What makes this strange though is that behind the dread we might have felt a sense of hope that we were wrong about what happens. Maybe Hannah doesn’t die. Maybe her parents will make it home on time. Maybe one of her friends will come over and talk her out of it. Maybe Hannah will change her mind.
But that is just not how it works.
As much as we hope that some miracle will come along, that is not what the show is about. It’s about pain and tragedy. The show is telling its audience that as much as we might hope for something to change in the last second, that is not reality. These stories are devastating. But they must be told. We need to hear (and see) these stories for what they are.
13 Reasons Why is special because even though it’s a fictional series, it tells stories of controversial subjects that don’t get discussed enough for what they really are- not just about suicide, but also assault in various forms and the victims not obtaining their justice. It’s a rare situation for a TV show to display hefty topics that express reality because shows are usually in it solely for the entertainment. And editing the suicide scene is taking a step back for fictional stories to give factual details that the public can be so ignorant about.
Perhaps, the experts know what they’re talking about, but with no details on what they actually said, there’s not a lot of room to argue back. But the scene isn’t meant to glamorize suicide; it’s exactly the opposite. It’s dire. And sometimes the graphics are necessary so we understand what it really means.
