    Professional fixer Olivia Pope will find herself on the other side of a major, well, Scandal when ABC's hit drama returns for Season 3 this fall.

    In the season finale, Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Olivia (Kerry Washington) called it quits once again after learning of each other's misdeeds. (Remember when POTUS killed someone?) But in the closing moments of the episode, as Olivia went out for a run, she was bombarded by reporters trying to get an interview with the First Mistress. The question remains: Who leaked Olivia's name to the press?

    "There's a lot to be dealt with there and in true Scandal style, whatever you think we're going to do, we're not going to do," says executive producer Shonda Rhimes, who notes that fans will be very surprised by the revelation of who leaked the news. "I'm pretty proud of the way we found our way out of it. At the end of last season, when we said that's going to happen, everyone was like, 'How are we going to get out of it?' and I was like, 'I have no idea!' I feel like the story continues at the same breakneck pace and we're going to have that same energy."

    Coming off a strong and critically acclaimed second season — which earned both Washington and co-star Dan Bucatinsky Emmy nods — Washington herself worried how'd they top themselves. "We ended with such a bang and it was such a whirlwind of a season," she says. "I don't want to say I was worried, but I didn't know how we were going to do it. Then I found that out, and I was like, 'We're going to be fine.'"

    It's easy to assume that OPA will step up to help their fearless leader during her time of need, but she's not necessarily going to become a client when the series returns. "Olivia has never wanted to involve them in any of her personal affairs unless she's had to and I think this is going to hold true," Rhimes says. "If you remember at the end of last season, Olivia firmly put that white hat back on her head and she's going to try to be a better person. So, perhaps she's not going to want their help."

    Adds Washington: "When we pick back up, we're meeting her just minutes after the end of last season. So, she's got a lot on her plate because she's dealing with two bombs: One, that her name has been leaked, and the other that her father is in this car with her. They're both pretty extraordinary challenges."

    Each Gladiator will handle the truth about Olivia very differently, notes Katie Lowes, who plays newest OPA member Quinn. "It's very complicated and human, as per usual," she says. "There's no black or white about it."

    The news will also impact the White House, as Fitz is pressured to address the situation with the public. "It's extreme," says Goldwyn, who adds that Fitz will likely suspect Mellie (Bellamy Young) as he leak. "It's like a tsunami coming into the White House. Fitz pulls into himself and gets real practical about everything. He deals with it quite soberly with a pretty clear head while everyone is freaking out around him."

    But co-star Darby Stanchfield says the leak will be the least of OPA's worries. "When Episode 301 airs, we have this big problem, but when the episode ends, you've got like five problems, in typical Scandal fashion," she says.

    That's likely due to the reveal that B613 leader Rowan (Joe Morton) is actually Olivia's father, who showed up seconds after the press stormed her building. With the premiere picking up minutes later, executive producer Betsy Beers says the first two episodes are fraught with the father-daughter relationship. "It's the most challenging, moving, surprising dynamic for a family that I've really seen in a while," she says. "You will learn a lot. It's clearly unorthodox, but it really drives it in an incredibly intense, surprising direction."

    Now we can announce that the wedding is scheduled to take place in early November. The pair discusses the excitement ahead.

    TV Guide Magazine: So you're ready to make it official?

    Boreanaz: I really thought a wedding might be the last thing we'd see. We're doing it while we're still hot.

    TV Guide Magazine: Brennan has said that since she's not a virgin, she won't wear white.

    Deschanel: I didn't even wear white at my own wedding. But it seems like Brennan's willing to go more traditional because it means so much to Booth. She still might walk down the aisle in a Nigerian dress.

    TV Guide Magazine: Who might be the maid of honor and best man?

    Deschanel: Angela, her best friend, of course.

    Boreanaz: I talked to [executive producer] Hart Hanson, and I think it might be Booth's former priest friend [House of Lies' Mather Zickel], whom we're going to meet in the first episode. And Booth's son, Parker, should be there.

    Deschanel: I'd also like to see Brennan's dad, brother and cousin [played by real-life sis Zooey Deschanel]. And Cyndi Lauper's psychic character should sing.

    TV Guide Magazine: Any elements from your own weddings you'd like to incorporate?

    Boreanaz: Candles. The power went out at my wedding.

    Deschanel: Our friend married us, so that would be nice.

    TV Guide Magazine: In non-wedding news, Brennan will be assigned to jury duty, right?

    Deschanel: [Laughs] I think she'll be an excellent juror. I got called to jury duty once. The case was about a man who claimed he got warts from a colonoscopy. I wanted to serve, but the case was too long.

    Boreanaz: I've never, and I don't want to.

    TV Guide Magazine: And Booth and Brennan will be going under cover to a couple's retreat. Ever experience anything similar?

    Deschanel: I went to a dude ranch when I was a little girl. Does that count?

    Boreanaz: No! I've been away on weekend retreats of love with my wife where you examine your own personal relationship. They give you stuff when you go to sleep. They used to give you chocolates; now it's toys.

    TV Guide Magazine: There's also a case coming up where body parts turn up in canned beef stew.

    Boreanaz: [Laughs] I'm sure Emily [who is vegan] is going to love that one!

    Deschanel: It had better be fake beef!

    Boreanaz: I just hope I'm not directing that episode!

    Two CBS procedurals will revisit the darkest hours of their characters' lives this fall. In October, Criminal Minds will pay tribute to the murdered wife of Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson). "In our 100th episode five years ago, Hotchner's wife, Haley, was murdered by Foyet [aka the Reaper] and then Hotchner beat Foyet to death," says executive producer Erica Messer. "So we're going to honor the longtime fans by clueing the audience in to where Hotchner has been emotionally these past five years." Both Meredith Monroe (Haley) and C. Thomas Howell (Foyet) are being invited back to shoot new scenes.

    NCIS's Thanksgiving episode will address the sadness surrounding Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll), who is spending his first holiday season without his murdered spouse, Jackie. "We'll be casting the father of Vance's wife," says executive producer Gary Glasberg. "We think it will really have some resonance."

    We grabbed your fan questions off Twitter and hit up Horowitz and Kitsis for a quick round of scoop, in which the producers had the option to answer, "Yes," "No" or "Can't Answer." Some of their answers, and possible non-answers, are pretty telling, so check them out below:

    Will we find out why or how Peter Pan obtained the drawing of Henry?

    Adam Horowitz
    : Yes.

    Is your Rufio the same as Hook's version of Rufio?

    Rufio belongs to another take on the Pan thing. We're not using that character that was created by another world, but we are making a loving nod towards a movie and a mythology that we enjoy. Hook was a movie that we saw when we were younger.

    Kitsis: Everyone has great respect for that movie in the [writers'] room and you realize collectively everyone grew up loving that movie.

    Horowitz: We wanted to give the fans a little nod to that. So, if you look closely, I think you might get a nice, fun nod.

    Are we finally going to see how Regina (Lana Parrilla) adopted Henry (Jared Gilmore)?

    Kitsis and Horowitz
    : Yes!

    Will Regina get a love interest?

    : Yes.

    Kitsis: Will she chose to love is another question.

    Can the Charmings really trust their enemies?

    : Can't answer.

    Will Ariel have a connection to our group?

    : Yes.

    Will Emma (Jennifer Morrison) get magic lessons from Regina?

    : Can't answer.

    Will there be a way to communicate between Neverland and Storybrooke?

    : Ooo!

    Kitsis: Can't answer.

    Horowitz: Good question, though!

    Will there be a new mayor in Storybrooke?

    : I'm not sure that the municipality of Storybrooke is what is first and foremost on the minds of the citizens.

    Horowitz: We've seen a lot of Twitter fire about maybe Belle (Emilie de Ravin) will be mayor. She's comptroller while everyone is gone. [Laughs]

    Will we see Wendy Darling (Freya Tingley) again?

    : Perhaps.

    Will we find out who wrote the fairy tale book?

    : Can't answer.

    Might the group split up when they get to Neverland?

    Horowitz and Kitsis
    : Can't answer.

    Will Rumple (Robert Carlyle) revert to his old self physically in Neverland?

    : You never know with the Dark One.

    Horowitz: Being in Neverland will have a profound effect on all the characters, including Rumple.

    Will we actually see the Land of Oz this season?


    Horowitz: Let's talk about that question in December.

    Kitsis: Not in the first pod of episodes.

    Grey's Anatomy kicks off its momentous 10th season right where we left off: during a super-storm that may have claimed the life of the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital's most beloved doctor, Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.). Will he survive the electrocution that left him seemingly lifeless in the closing moments the Season 9 finale?

    "No comment," spoilerphobe executive producer Shonda Rhimes says.

    Mer/Der family dynamic: Even though Meredith was already a mother to Zola, things will be very different now that she's given birth. "They have a newborn, which is very different from adopting a 1-year-old child," Rhimes says. "It's a very different idea to have a newborn who only sleeps two hours at a time, wakes up to be fed, and Meredith has to figure out how to breastfeed and all those other things. Also, having two children is very different from having one." As for whether that means she'll take a step back from the hospital, "We'll see her deal with what that choice means," Rhimes says.

    Arizona's infidelity: Callie and Arizona will have to face their issues head on, which treads on familiar territory for Callie, whom George (T.R. Knight) cheated on all those years ago. "It's not how she's handling it differently, but it's more, 'How does the fact that she's been cheated on before influence how she feels now? What is that going to mean for her?'" Rhimes ponders. "These characters have some very complex things to go through. I'm excited to see what this means for them."

    Cristina and Owen's future: The duo called it quits once again, realizing that they will never be on the same page when it comes to wanting to have children. "We're going to watch them grapple with what it means to have broken up at the end of the season and what that means for their future," Rhimes says. "For both of them, the hard part is that they love each other. They want very, very different things, but they love each other. If only she'd want to have babies, or if only he'd give up wanting kids, they'd be fine."

    The big 200: "It's going to be special," Rhimes says of the season's fourth episode. "We're not going to go over-the-top big and do anything crazy because the beauty of doing a 200th episode is that we've done this 199 times. I want to see people in formal wear because that's always fun for me. I also want to see a little romance. But I also really want to deal with the fact that, to me, the biggest thing about the 200th is realizing and seeing that our original interns have grown up and they are these very badass surgeons at this point. They are no longer fumbling and confused. They are the ones giving the order. The 200th is going to be a big deal and we're very excited about it."

    I had never seen HAIM live before their Lollapalooza set, so I had no idea what to expect. I knew they were on everybody's radar because they're a little peculiar: A '70s-inspired rock band from California made up of three sisters, Este, Danielle and Alana, all under 30. They have waist-length hair, look like Urban Outfitters models and everyone compares them to Fleetwood Mac. On top of all that, they even play their own instruments? That never happens anymore.

    HAIM played to a small but loyal crowd at the Grove Stage in Grant Park Saturday night. Fans gathered in close as the three sisters were up against hip-hop's No. 1 crush, Kendrick Lamar, who we could still hear between songs despite being two stages away. "How the f-ck are we feeling, Chicago?" Este Haim, the youngest and the bassist of the group asked. Nothing gets a crowd going like an F-bomb in the first five minutes.

    Since breaking out with their debut EP Forever in 2012, it's been nothing but buzz for HAIM. After a successful gig at 2012's SXSW, the sisters were signed to Polydor Records the following June. Since, they've supported Mumford & Sons and Florence and the Machine on the road, and their latest hit, "Falling," has nearly three million views on YouTube. If that's not making you feel unaccomplished enough, I also learned during their Lolla set that the sisters are not only inspiring, bold and insanely talented, but they're also hilarious.

    After Alana, the keyboardist, was thrown her first ever bra from the audience, she looked genuinely touched. She told the crowd what was written on it—"I will always support you"—and shared her appreciation. "Oh man, it's a 'B' [cup]. Like me! We match! Itty bitty titty committee, girl. I feel you."

    As for the music, it ruled. I thought I was done with headbanging until I saw these three bringing it back in sync during their electric hits "Better Off," "Forever" and their latest release, "The Wire." The massive dance party that broke out during "Don't Save Me" came as a surprise, but that's only because I'd never heard that song before. It's impossible not to dance to.

    Despite the chugging guitars and the cool-as-ice demeanor, we also saw the sentimental side of the sister act. "[Lead singer] Danielle and I came to Lolla in 2007," Este told the crowd, "And we were at this stage watching the Cold War Kids. And I remember looking over at her—I'm sorry, I'm getting really emotional—and saying, 'Wouldn't it be crazy if we did this one day?'" She looked away from the mic to compose herself (because there is no crying in HAIM) before finishing her thought: "OK, now we're gonna jam for a little bit."

    If by "jam" she meant "make all of you people brand new fans of ours," then yes, HAIM jammed for a little bit. A lotta bit, actually.

    I know these girls get a lot of flack on ONTD, and I think more people should try giving them a chance. They're fantastic live, so if you ever get the opportunity to see them, do it! Este, Danielle and Alana thank you for your time.

    For anyone addicted to MTV’s Catfish—a reality TV series spun off a popular 2010 documentary of the same name—the haunting question is: who are these people? Who decides to lure someone else into a protracted online relationship through pure and wildly superficial deceit? And, perhaps more pressingly: who will decide to catfish someone only after seeing it done on TV? Seriously, does Catfish encourage catfishing?

    It’s not too crazy a question, given that the success of MTV’s Teen Mom spawned countless forums where young women discussed getting deliberately pregnant just to get on the show and traded the relevant casting info. Catfish is poised as the channel’s next flagship program, with countless impressionable young fans—it continues to be a top-tweeted TV show and generate huge buzz on the Internet. Not totally surprising, since that’s where most of its action takes place.

    The hosts, Nev Schulman and Max Joseph, never condone the act of catfishing—Schulman is the victim in the original film and here takes on a Dr. Drew-ish fake-therapist persona—and yet even in the second season (still in progress) we’ve begun to track some disturbing signs: when Nev calls the culprits, they’re always already familiar with the show and its premise, and many seem eager to come clean about their duplicity, as long as it’s on TV. The lies have become more outrageous, and often more cunning.

    The most recent episode, “Jen & Skylar” featured a bro who got cozy with lonely women online in order to “brush up his game,” only to cease all contact when a relationship reached its climax. Nev and Max were so taken aback at the guy’s inability to admit that what he’d done was cruel that they spent a good quarter of the episode telling him off and didn’t even try to affect the usual semi-reconciliation.

    The show disparages him as something of a hopeless sociopath, but he felt like a disturbingly average type. Other catfishers, when confronted about their actions, are tautologically evasive: “I was bored” and “Why not?” is how some have explained their motivations, which sounds for all the world like what I would say if someone asked why I was watching Catfish in the first place. When emotionally toying with people from across the country comes to seem like a game or even passive entertainment to an entire generation—and may net you a check from MTV—what hope do we have to foster transparency and trust online?

    Ideally, the show serves to warn us about "falling for" people we've never actually met, though it's hard to argue that it doesn't open up a world of possibilities for a scam artist or career narcissist. I guess what I'm trying to say, at the end of the day, is that I'm not really "Miles Klee," but a woman living in North Dakota who is ashamed to be 6'2" and therefore never goes out of the house. I just thought more people would click on my posts if I pretended to be a male writer in New York with a phony-sounding name.

    Reign, which premieres Thursday, October 17 in the coveted post-Vampire Diaries timeslot on The CW, has its work cut out for it: The pilot has some really fantastic production values, and the show takes place in a different era, which surely means a lot of expensive costuming. The show also will have to win over some folks who point out how historically inaccurate it might be. After all, Mary, Queen of Scots, the character that Adelaide Kane is playing, was a very real person, with a lot of people who aren’t even historians knowing her story already.

    Fortunately, there’s an attractive cast with a good soundtrack, and if it clicks the right way with audience, it could be a Game Of Thrones for young females, with a bonus “hunky Nostradamus” to add to the mix. Might it work?


    Cast members of Reign, including Adelaide Kane (Mary), Toby Regbo (Prince Francis), Torrance Coombs (Bash), and Megan Follows (Queen Catherine), were joined by Executive Producer Laurie McCarthy at the CW portion of the Television Critics Association press tour last week, and, as to be expected, members of the press grilled them a bit about the creative licenses that are taken with the history.

    “I think in each episode we’ll educate people on what element of history helps our story, and I think that there is a certain amount of latitude in terms of dramatizing events,” Laurie McCarthy, the executive producer, says. “When we were in production, I kept talking about you see portraiture of the time and you read things in books and, more often than not, sort of Wikipedia, and there are many things that happened that never made it onto the pages of history. I also wondered what was the castle like on a Tuesday at 11 o’clock in the morning.  What did they really wear when they weren’t getting their pictures essentially taken?” she wonders.

    “It’s also TV, so we can take creative license,” Kane, the show’s star, says. “It’s entertainment.  It’s not The History Channel.  We’re trying to make a show that people will enjoy watching and will really connect with and will find really fun.  And, of course, we’re going to dramatize events and throw little curveballs in our characters’ ways and things like that, but that’s what makes it fun.” Kane’s costar Torrance Coombs is happy for the liberties that are taken, as his character does not exist in history.

    “I actually did a lot of research about Mary,” Adelaide Kane says. “I wanted to get to know her as a woman and as a person and not just as a dry, historical figure. She was really a remarkable woman.  There is a little bit of literature out there about her personality.  She was very witty, charming, very, very intelligent woman.  She spoke six languages.  She played two different instruments.  She rode.  She hunted.  She hawked.  She danced.  She played golf.  She was an incredibly energetic, vivacious young women.  And, you know, she was married three times and widowed twice by the time she was 26, I believe.  26, 28 is when she was deposed from Scotland and had to flee to England and then was put under house arrest by her cousin Elizabeth.  So I did do quite a bit of research and it’s sort of marrying what I’ve read about her and how she’s written in the script and then putting a little piece of myself in there to bring it all together,” she enthuses.


    Mary Queen of Scots is one of my favorite historical figures, so this show intrigues me and I'll definitely be watching. Can we also make this a history discussion post?

    Chris Rock gave terminally ill teen a copy of Pamela Anderson's sex tape

    CHRIS Rock says he gave a cancer-stricken teenage boy a copy of Pamela Anderson's sex tape as part of a Make-A-Wish Foundation visit.

    "I snuck him the Pam Anderson sex tape," the comedian told Jerry Seinfeld.

    The story emerged as the comedy colleagues shared a moment in the latest episode of Seinfeld’s Emmy-nominated web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

    After hearing of Rock’s risque final offering to the 15-year-old, Seinfeld takes his hands off the steering wheel and laughs while clapping.

    Rock says the boy "is dead now", which prompts Seinfeld to offer a eulogy, saying the teen enjoyed a few good moments before dying.

    "He lived a little more."

    Watch the whole episode here:

    Apparently they were also pulled over during filming for maybe speeding, as Jerry just pointed out how fast the car could go.

    It's hard to believe its been a year since Ryan Lochte's good looks and innocent self-absorption generated plenty of Olympics buzz. Since then, the 28-year-old 11-time Olympic medalist has worn out his "Jeah" catchphrase and starred in a reality show that played off his dumb jock reputation, "The World According to Ryan Lochte."

    But now that the World Championships are back, some wondered whether Lochte's antics would distract him from his supposedly no. 1 priority -- swimming.

    On Thursday, just before his appearance at the Championships in Barcelona, the world's most outlandishly dressed swimmer posted a photo of the sneakers he was wearing on his big day -- a fuzzy, yellow-and-black set of teddy bears wearing Adidas hats.

    "Wanna go on safari?" Lochte wrote.

    Thankfully, the eyebrow-raising kicks didn't seem to distract from his performance in the pool.

    The former Florida Gator won his third gold in the 200m medley on Thursday, becoming only the second man to do so after Michael Phelps.

    "It's good to get a win out of this Worlds considering the circumstances I was in, taking time off and starting back in training late, so I'm happy with it," he told reporters.

    Lochte beat Japan's Kosuke Hagino and Brazil's Thiago Pereira with a time of 54.98.

    James Wan’s The Conjuring surpassed $100M here in the States. That’s insane. Who knows what exactly caused its monstrous success, but the fact that it was super fun and crazy scary probably had a lot to do with it…

    New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures have fast-tracked a sequel, which would continue the adventures of Ed and Lorraine Warren, played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, respectively. The movie bookends with a tease that the Warren’s next case involves the infamous house in The Amityville Horror, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that’s where the famous duo are heading.

    According to Aint it Cool News, the case file writers Carey and Chad Hayes are looking at occurs in the late ’70s and centers on two sisters in Enfield, England, who were allegedly possessed. Warren said she personally saw them levitate and even saw one of the sister dematerialize in front of her only to be found 20 minutes later stuffed into an oversized fuse box, contorted in such an unnatural way that they couldn’t have replicated it if they tried. She also said that the demon spoke directly to her husband on many occasions. Warren cited this case as one of the most terrifying experiences of her career.

    Doing a little bit of research on it, Quint discovered that this is widely considered a youngsters-playing-pranks case by most paranormal investigators.

    The Conjuring is on the way to being the fourth highest grossing supernatural horror ever. Hot. Damn.

    The [houseguests are] amazed at how dark Amanda is now after the back to back spray tans. JUDD jokes that the night is young there will be a couple more tans before they’re done.

    4:24 PM:
    Amanda: “I look like a migrant worker”
    Aaryn: “You look like a immigrant”
    Amanda: “I look like a slave”
    Aaryn: ‘Ok that was racist”

    Embarrassing when AARYN calls you out for being racist

    The music plays for Amanda to take another spray tan. She and McCrae head out into the backyard. She gets in the booth and does her spray tan while McCrae laughs at her then entire time. They the head into the bathroom where Amanda looks at her butt in the mirror and says “EWWW.. I look like SNOOKI!”

    WHY does CBS keep editing her to make her look good? She is one of the most vile, racist people in the house and I cannot believe CBS let's her get away with it.

  • Weinstein Thinks You Are Too Dumb For SNOWPIERCER


    Once news broke that The Weinstein Company had acquired international rights to Bong Joon-ho's hotly anticipated Snowpiercer, it was perhaps inevitable that the film wouldn't make it to Western screens unscathed. It has now been revealed that Harvey Weinstein has ordered the revered Korean cineaste to cut a whopping 20 minutes from his film before it will see the light of day in North America, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand or the UK.

    The Sci-Fi blockbuster has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from Variety, Screen Daily, The Hollywood Reporter and right here at Twitch, and is currently smashing box office records following its release six days ago in its native Korea (to date a record 3.76 million admissions). So why does Weinstein want to cut it?

    According to film critic and programmer Tony Rayns "TWC people have told Bong that their aim is to make sure the film 'will be understood by audiences in Iowa ... and Oklahoma.'" Effectively, the notorious Hollywood executive believes the American mid-west is too stupid for Snowpiercer, a movie which essentially chronicles the journey of a few people at the back of a train who stage a revolt and proceed, in a straight line, towards the front.

    Rayns continued "Leaving aside the issue of what Weinstein thinks of its audience, it seems to say the least anomalous that the rest of the English-speaking world has to be dragged down to the presumed level of American mid-west hicks." The film critic attend the July 29th Seoul premiere of the film and after speaking with Bong, revealed that most of the cuts would come in the form of character detail, effectively turning this rich Sci-Fi thriller into a straightforward action film. Adding further insult to injury, voiceovers will now be added to the opening and closing of the film.

    Weinstein (or Harvey Scissorhands as he's known in some quarters) is well known for cutting and dumbing down foreign films for the US market, such as Princess Mononoke (1997) and Shaolin Soccer (2001). Snowpiercer, though 126 minutes long, doesn't have a great deal of flab which could easily be cut out. However, it is a very dark film, which may explain why the demanded cuts are so significant. If they happen where I think they will, much of what makes this film so special will be lost.

    According to Rayns, the UK will be protesting TWC's proposed cuts and he hopes that Australia will follow suit. Sadly though, American audiences are likely to be presented with a substantially different version of Bong's bold and ambitious film, and will probably have to wait for an uncut "director's cut" to appear on DVD/Blu-Ray before they can see the real thing.

    It was the surprise news which sent Jedward fans into meltdown on Twitter on Sunday - the pair were set to appear in the sequel to surprise cult hit of the year Sharknado.

    The film stars Tara Reid and 90210's Ian Ziering, and after it was a massive hit, movie bosses decided to make a sequel.

    And in a bizarre turn of events, as well as signing Ian and Tara up again, producers had apparently decided what a film about sharks swept up in a tornado really needed was ... Jedward. Except, not really...

    The Irish twins tweeted that, not only are they writing a song for the film's soundtrack, but they're also appearing in the film.

    BUT WAIT! It's not true because it seems it had all been a dream in Tara's head as she later tweeted: "It's just an idea to have @planetjedward in #SharkNado2 but there's no script yet who else do you think should be in it #ideas."

    WHAT?! Not true?! WE CAN'T BELIEVE IT!

    And neither could Jedward fans, with one tweeting: "@TaraReid @planetjedward You dangled the dream in front of us and then took it away just like that ;-("

    Yes, clearly it is a sad, sad day.

    the stars formed a friendship in the Celebrity Big Brother House

    American Pie star Tara appeared to confirm the news earlier in the day, writing on Twitter (in her normal clear fashion): "So excited John and Edward will be making there first movie debut in #sharknado 2 and will be on the soundtrack! Woo hop" Woo hop indeed.

    Tara talked to 3am, telling us that there's no point taking a film about flying sharks seriously. "I read it and I was laughing so hard because it was the most ridiculous movie I'd ever heard of. It was so insane."

    Happy Scottish Results Day, people and people related to people getting Exam Results!

    Superstar couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z have shown that they may just be the best bosses in Hollywoodas they rewarded their staff with £30,000 bonus each, according to reports.

    The successful duo rewarded their full-time staff of 80 with a very generous bonus that saw the singer fork out a massive alleged £2.4 million.

    Owning three US homes, everyone that worked within them was rewarded and even staff at the 40/40 Club got in on the action with no-one being left out, claims suggest.

    A source told the Daily Star: “He’s spreading the wealth around and everyone is blown away”.

    Staff were left amazed (and pleased we bet!) at the generosity of their boss with the source adding: “Nobody got left out. A lot of them couldn’t believe it and phoned his personal assistant to check that there hadn’t been some mistake”.

    Mr Z has just released his new album Holy Grail to rave reviews and Beyoncé is on the road with The Mrs Carter Show world tour, so we’re sure the pennies are still coming in!

    Fox Searchlight moved the film's release date up by a month to September 27, 2013, in what will be one of the most crowded fall seasons in black cinema history, given the number of black films scheduled to open between August and December this year. Some actually had to be moved to early next year to avoid the competition.

    The ensemble cast includes Paula Patton, Taye Diggs, Derek Luke, Trey Songz, Jill Scott, J Cole, Djimon Hounsou, Adam Brody, Boris Kodjoe, Tia Mowry, Lala Anthony and others.

    Based on Talbert's best-selling debut novel about a flight attendant with thirty days and thirty thousand miles to find a husband, the synopsis for Baggage Claim reads:

    Pledging to keep herself from being the oldest and the only woman in her entire family never to wed, Montana embarks on a thirty-day, thirty-thousand-mile expedition to charm a potential suitor into becoming her fiancé. Whom will she choose? Damon Diesel, a P. Diddy wannabe; Reverend Curtis P. Merewether, pastor of Greater House of Deliverance, Tabernacle of Praise, Worship, and Miracles; pompous attorney-turned-councilman Langston Jefferson Battle III; or Quinton Jamison, a multimillionaire who's twenty years her senior?

    Patton leads the ensemble cast, starring as our husband-seeking flight attendant.

    This actually looks really fun and funny.
    'Montana, you should come a take a look at this, I think the prince of Zamunda might be here to see you'.....'none of the married men I date wear wedding rings, I mean its just tacky.'

    Mark Wahlberg has branded Justin Bieber a "naughty...little b**tard" and warned the young star to "stop smoking weed".

    The 2 Guns actor, who also found fame as a teenager, urged Bieber to "be the best [he] can" and "make [his] mom proud" while he is still a success.

    Speaking during a webchat with The Sun, Wahlberg declared: "Justin, are you listening? Don't be so naughty, yeah?"

    Addressing reports that marijuana had been found on a bus associated with Bieber's entourage, he continued: "Be a nice boy, pull your trousers up, make your mom proud and stop smoking weed, you little b**tard.

    "He's a teenager living in a different day and age. I was in prison before I got a record out and I don't think he's been to prison.

    "He's a nice enough kid and you're going to be a teenager, but if you're being a teen in the spotlight you're going to be criticized for it. This career can be short-lived - you might as well be the best you can while you're doing it."

    Wahlberg also revealed that he and Bieber are planning to make a film together.

    "Justin and I were talking about doing a movie, which could still happen," he said.

    "We have a great script that could be a vehicle for him to make his debut in movies, then maybe we could do something for the soundtrack."

    Bieber yesterday (August 5) denied reports that he ripped off his shirt and "went nuts" during a night out in New York, allegedly sparking a fight between his entourage and club patrons.source

    Chris Colfer, who stars as Kurt Hummel in Glee has spoken about returning to work in the wake of Cory Monteith's tragic death.

    The cast of Glee are returning to work this week since Montieth passed away in July after an accidental overdose involving heroin and alcohol.

    Colfer, who is currently in New York promoting the second novel in his The Land of Stories series, The Enchantress Returns, is set to join the cast in what he says will be an emotional reunion.

    Speaking to Entertainment Weekly Radio, he said, "We've had bumps and dips along the road over the course of the years, but nothing like this."

    "I know we've always come together - always - in the past, because we are such a family in the cast and the crew."

    He went on to say, "I'm assuming things will be very different, and I'm sure they'll be difficult at first. But…. We'll see. I think I'm positive."

    Lea Michele gathered with cast and crew last week for a private memorial service. Since then, Fox, makers of Glee, have released a touching memorial video of Monteith's best bits on the show.
