With Only Lovers Left Alive, British actor Tom Hiddleston teams up with Tilda Swinton and director Jim Jarmusch to wrestle the vampire genre back from the Twilight crowd, with Hiddleston and Swinton starring as two moody, music-obsessed bloodsuckers who can’t live without each other.
Metro News: Was there any hesitation about stepping into the vampire world?
Tom Hiddleston: Absolutely none. It was amazing. I met Jim Jarmusch in November 2011, and I’d just finished shooting Avengers, and I was in New York for War Horse, which was just opening, and I was about to shoot the Shakespeare plays for PBS. So there were superheroes and soldiers and Shakespeare, and I met Jim and he said, “I’m going to make a film about love, and it’s about two very delicate, sophisticated creatures who love music and poetry and nature. He’s a kind of rock star musician who’s also a kind of scientist and physicist, and she’s a poet. Oh, and by the way, they’re vampires (laughs).” The vampire theme was really a framing for Jim to attempt a narrative about this theme of love, acceptance, time, creativity, and mortality.
MN: When you first watched the film with an audience, were you surprised people found it so funny?
TH: It was really pleasing, actually, because we wanted there to be levity and lightness in it, and humour, but not in a way that seemed to be overreaching. We didn’t want to seem like we were pandering to the audience in bad taste, which would dilute the integrity of the attempt. And the attempt was really to make something very delicate and sophisticated and refined about love and acceptance and time and art and music and poetry. These are big themes, and we didn’t want to seem heavy-handed. Jim wanted to be very light on his feet. So hearing the laughter is thrilling, truly, because when you’re delivering deadpan stuff about the literature of the world, you want people to get it.
MN: I loved that John Hurt plays Christopher Marlowe.
TH: Yeah, it’s a lovely joke that Christopher Marlowe is still alive and well, living in Tangier with a portrait of Shakespeare on his wall with a knife through his head.
MN: We asked Hiddleston if he had to choose between looking at Tilda Swinton or Chris Hemsworth all day, who would he choose?
TH: “The dance is different, but I love dancing with both of them,” he said laughing. (OP: SCREAMING OMFG THIS CLOSET SLUT)

Shit just got real now that Hiddles is recently out and about with his life-ruining self...
Also, did you see "Only Lovers Left Alive" in your local theaters recently, ONTD?
Even though the internet's new favorite pastime is making fun of all the hipster messes/cultural appropriation warriors that flock to Coachella these days, there are actually people who go and manage to NOT look like assholes. It's hard to believe, but they do exist!
Alexander + Bill Skarsgard
Jessica Szohr + Dianna Agron

I started making this post thinking there would be more people to include. Whoops...
Despite pickups in the news, Young Money Entertainment has not signed openly gay rapper Young Fly Red to a label deal he tweeted. "These rumors are awesome!!!" Red wrote, dropping link to one stories, which came with quotes from Lil Wayne & Birdman.
"I told yall this was a rumor!! Im not YMCMB," he added yesterday, this time with link to confirmation from YMCMB President Mack Maine. "No, not at all," Maine said to XXL magazine, when asked if the label had recruited Red to the roster.
He took to Twitter to clarify as well. "I don't know if this is a publicity stunt but we (YMCMB) haven't signed any new artist recently....Love," Maine wrote.
Prior to the false connection to Weezy, Nicki Minaj and Drake, Red was building momentum on his own. "My song is very popular in the gay clubs," he told the Huffington Post.
He added, "Yes, I consider myself a queer artist. When I was 16 I started to gain notoriety for rap and started with a rap group. At this point I started to realize I was gay. I'm rapping about females and hanging out with straight with a reputation that they worked hard for. As time passed and I got more comfortable, I realized the only thing in my way was me."
WGN America is the latest TV network looking to DC Comics for adaptable material. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Jason Aaron and R.M. Guera’s Vertigo series Scalped — which ran for 60 issues between 2007 and 2012 — is the latest to be put in development for a TV drama. Banshee’s Doug Jung will reportedly write the pilot script and executive produce the drama for Warner Horizon Television.
DC describes the series as “ an intense crime drama that mixes organized crime with current Native American culture."
“Fifteen years ago, Dashiell ‘Dash’ Bad Horse ran away from a life of abject poverty and utter hopelessness on the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation searching for something better,” reads the description of the series first trade paperback collection Indian Country. “Now he's come back home armed with nothing but a set of nunchucs, a hell-bent-for-leather attitude and one dark secret, to find nothing much has changed on ‘The Rez’ — short of a glimmering new casino, and a once-proud people overcome by drugs and organized crime. Is he here to set things right or just get a piece of the action?”
Scalped becomes just the latest in a growing slate of DC/Vertigo comics being adapted for TV. The line-up already includes The Flash, Hourman, and iZombie (the CW), Constantine (NBC), Gotham (Fox), Preacher (AMC), and DMZ (SyFy).
Vertigo - where Scalped, iZombie, Preacher, DMZ, and arguably Constantine originated from - is becoming a hot imprint for live-action adaption. Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is in development as a feature film with Joseph Gordon-Levitt attached to produce (and possibly direct and star), and just last week it was reported Simon Oliver and Robbi Rodriguez’s Vertigo series Federal Bureau of Physics was being developed as a feature film for Warner Bros. with David Goyer attached as producer and Justin Marks attached as screenwriter. Marks was previously hired to write an adaption of DC’s Suicide Squad, but that project is reportedly on hold until after DC solidifies its Justice League/DC Cinematic Universe plans.
The biblical epic "Noah" hit the box office its opening weekend with a strong start but many movie goers left the theater secretly thinking the same thing: Wait a minute. Why was everyone white?
Journalist Christine A. Scheller sat down with the film's screenwriter, Ari Handel, to investigate why there was plenty of diversity with the animals but none when it came to the people in the film.
Here is how he responded:
"From the beginning, we were concerned about casting, the issue of race. What we realized is that this story is functioning at the level of myth, and as a mythical story, the race of the individuals doesn’t matter. They’re supposed to be stand-ins for all people. Either you end up with a Bennetton ad or the crew of the Starship Enterprise. You either try to put everything in there, which just calls attention to it, or you just say, 'Let’s make that not a factor, because we’re trying to deal with everyman.' Looking at this story through that kind of lens is the same as saying, 'Would the ark float and is it big enough to get all the species in there?' That’s irrelevant to the questions because the questions are operating on a different plane than that; they’re operating on the mythical plane."
It looks like Handel tried to take the easy way out with the interview but as expected, Twitter was not happy with his justification:
@reelsistas so I'm supposed to believe a group of white people repopulated a world full of different colors and ethnicities? Um no...— Film Fatale (@FilmFatale_NYC) April 12, 2014
Ari Handel says a "Myth," looking like a "Bennetton ad or the Starship Enterprise," is a bad thing. Internalized white supremacy, yo.— Kristen McHugh (@kristenmchugh22) April 12, 2014
Also, Ari Handel co-wrote The Fountain as well, which would explain why both films are apparently of the same navel-gazing fail vein.— Paige Kimble (@rhiannonrevolts) April 12, 2014
It was just last Friday when we got a peek at one of Philip Seymour Hoffman's last performances in a preview for the upcoming spy thriller "A Most Wanted Man." Now today we're getting a look at Hoffman's other final film as the first trailer for the pitch-black crime comedy "God's Pocket" has debuted online.
Marking the feature directorial debut of "Mad Men" star John Slattery (who also co-adapted the script from Pete Dexter's 1983 novel), the late 70s-set film revolves around a mean-streeted, blue-collar neighborhood known as "God's Pocket," and shows what happens when a lowlife thug is killed in a so-called construction "accident" and his boozing, gambling stepfather (Hoffman) tries to cover it up.
Co-starring John Turturro, Christina Hendricks, Richard Jenkins, Eddie Marsan and X-Men: First Class' Caleb Landry Jones as Hoffman's ill-fated stepson, the Sundance-selected film heads into theaters next month, May 9th.
Synopsis: When Mickey's (Hoffman) crazy stepson Leon is killed in a construction "accident," nobody in the working class neighborhood of God's Pocket is sorry he's gone. Mickey tries to bury the bad news with the body, but when the boy's mother demands the truth, Mickey finds himself stuck in a life-and-death struggle between a body he can't bury, a wife he can't please and a debt he can't pay.
Directed by: John Slattery
Starring: Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Turturro, Christina Hendricks, Richard Jenkins, Eddie Marsan, Caleb Landry Jones

Mila Kunis poses with her trophy in the press room backstage at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards held at the Nokia Theatre on Sunday (April 13) in Los Angeles. The 30-year-old pregnant actress showed off her tiny baby bump in a short black dress.
Mila picked up the award for Best Villain for her work in the movie Oz, The Great and Powerful. She beat out Captain Phillips‘ Barkhad Abdi, Star Trek Into Darkness‘ Benedict Cumberbatch, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘s Donald Sutherland, and 12 Years a Slave‘s Michael Fassbender.
During her acceptance speech, Mila noted how cool it was that she was the only woman nominated for the award.
I like her but lbr, she didn't deserve that award and that dress is fug.
Sorry mods, the post should be fixed now!
After her surprise appearance on the 7th and final season of Mad Man, last Sunday, Neve Campbell gave a few interviews. Marlow Stern, from The Daily Beast got this quote, directly from Sidney Prescott:
Which Scream film is your fave, ONTD? Scream 2 for me!
Praise be to the holy trinity of Marvel: Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt.
Are we supposed to believe that it's purely coincidence that the three hottest superheroes in the MCU just happen to be named Chris? Please. Marvel needs to get their hands on more Chrises and transform them into some cut-up, beefcake super-studs. Start your search here, Marvel casting department:
What You Know Him From: Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, that movie with Denzel Washington where they're on an unstoppable train (it may have been called Unstoppable), not Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
Who He Could Play: The new Hawkeye, once Jeremy Renner ages out of the role (which will be sooner than you think, let's get real with each other). He will show off more than just his arms. He will also show off his abs.
What You Know Him From: Danny on The Mindy Project; oh!-he's-that-one-guy! from Argo, Julie & Julia, etc.
Who He Could Play: Daredevil. We've seen Chris shirtless (and pantless, Google it) and we think he's got what the role requires. Oh, and he already has a New York accent. So, not as important, but kind of handy?
What You Know Him From: Piz on Veronica Mars (DAMN YOU, PIZ); The Help
What You Could Know Him As: Jack of Heart. He's kind of goofy superhero, and Chris Lowell is kind of a goofy guy. But even goofy superheroes need to be hot. And, if you saw the Mars movie, you know Piz looks good in a wet T-shirt.
What You Know Him From: Law & Order: SVU; your mom thinks he's hot
What You Could Know Him As: The Sentry. He starts as a middle-aged, out-of-shape regular Joe (so this one would require Meloni get out of shape first) and then—boom, Rocky montage—whips himself into shape (for the gratuitous shirtless scene).
What You Know Him From: Batman & Robin (the one with the nipples)
What You Could Know Him As: Doesn't matter. Just give his costume nipples, please.

The Lannisters aren't the only ones flush with cash -- sources tell TMZ, "Games of Thrones" stars Gwendoline Christie and Pedro Pascal feasted at a $1,200 dinner with friends Friday in Miami.
We're told Christie (who plays Brienne of Tarth) and Pascal (The Red Viper) were in town for the HBO Latin American 'GoT' tour, and stopped by South Beach hotspot Bâoli to try the most expensive burger in the city -- just days before Sunday's terrifying "Royal Wedding" episode.
It's called the Bâoli burger and it costs $65. It's made from Kobe beef with heirloom tomatoes, foie gras, and black truffle slices, topped with a quail egg.
We're told Christie and Pascal split the burger, but also ordered the burrata, tuna tartare, several sushi rolls, filet mignon, and the sea bass. They also ordered a bunch of fancy drinks -- and lucky for them ... HBO picked up the tab, we're told.
But the best part... no one was brutally murdered!
Lena Headey (Queen Regent Cersei): “I love him. It’s been four years and I’ve kind of seen Jack grow up — he’s very smart and he’s very funny and he’s very charming. And he’s great company! You form friendships and that’s been a really special one to me and I literally look into his eyes and I get very upset because I go, ‘No!’ But he’s going and I get it.”
Headey on Cersei’s wedding-day thoughts:“I think she’s enjoying this moment for as much as she can. Seeing Joffrey as genuinely happy and excited to marry Margaery — it kills her, and also she fucking loves him. She holds that boy on a very wobbly pedestal, but she holds him up. And yeah, it’s the beginning of everything falling down for her.”
Then she blames Tyrion: “Of course — who else could she blame? … The last thing she sees while holding her son is Tyrion and that’s all she needs.”
Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell):“We’re all going to miss him — we’re all trying not to think about it that it’s his last day so everyone is a little morose at the idea of actually losing Jack. But once you’re part of the Thrones family, you’re always part of the Thrones family, you’re still part of the clan even after.”
Dormer teases Margaery’s reaction:“Well, politically, to lose one husband is bad, but to lose two husbands is careless! It’s really bad PR for Margaery. So regardless of what she thought of Joffrey as a human being, it’s not a good place for her to be in. So she’s like, you know, cursed or tainted goods.”
Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark):“It’s been the best time working with Jack. He is one of the most talented actors on the show — he’s the nicest person in real life and he’s become a really close friend. He’s the easiest guy to work with and it’s gonna be so sad to see him go. He’s not like one of those method actors that goes into a dark place to get it because if he was one of those guys, he’d be horrible to work with. Everyone who meets him is always totally surprised because he’s like the funniest person and him and Peter [Dinklage] are like a double act — it’s so weird! You can’t meet anyone nicer on the cast — everyone wants to hang out with Jack.”
Turner also gave some insight about Sansa’s reaction to watching Joffrey die: “It says in the script that obviously it’s horror, but she’s seen this kind of stuff before and it’s kind of more a sigh of relief than anything — finally it’s happened. Finally, after all these years. You don’t want to see anyone die, but it’s like this massive weight off her shoulders.”
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) on what Jaime secretly felt (or didn’t) for his son: “I don’t think he has any love for Joffrey. He’s never been close to him. But he has huge love and affection for his mother, and he sees that effect.”
Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) on how Joffrey’s death impacts Tywin’s plans: “Well, it hasn’t come a moment too soon, really. It does help Tywin, because I’ve sorted out who I want to marry who. It’s all about maintaining the status quo really — making sure the Lannisters stay up there. Whether it’s getting help from the Dornish or the Tyrells, the most prominent house in the seven kingdoms is the house of Lannister, so I have to do whatever it takes to make sure that that situation stays. And way over in the east there’s these continuous rumors about this Targaryan girl with her dragons that I’m trying not to think about — let’s cross that bridge when we come to it. But now that we’ve got Joffrey out of the way, the young man that I want to put on the throne I can put on the throne … the death of Joffrey is fortuitous because he was kind of like a little mosquito anyway — annoying, that you’re swatting all the time.”
mods this hasnt been posted. EW just posted it as an ~exclusive~ on their site
There was a time when it was hard to imagine being excited for a “Planet of the Apes” movie. When “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” came out three years ago to rave reviews and became a box office success, surely nobody could have seen it coming. Now, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” is just a few months away, and it’s pretty safe to say that it’s the most anticipated film in the franchise. Still, while buzz surrounding the film is definitely strong, not everyone is particularly thrilled about what will appear on screen.
James Franco may be involved in a plethora of projects on a yearly basis, almost annoyingly so, but if you happen to see him appear in the upcoming 'Apes' film, you will be just as surprised as he is. Franco, of course, was the star of “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” but he was not expected to appear in the upcoming sequel which takes place years after the events of the first movie. According to Entertainment Weekly, in their summer preview issue, while Franco’s character Will Rodman has been wiped out by a virulent plague along with most of humanity, he will still be making a posthumous cameo. Franco, believe it or not, had no knowledge of such cameo.
“Wait, I have a cameo? I didn’t know that,” said Franco to EW. “You know, I don’t even think they asked my permission to do that.”
So, how did this bit of information slip by the actor? That’s anyone’s guess. Let’s hope it’s just some weird misunderstanding. You can check out James Franco’s unauthorized cameo, along with Andy Serkis, Gary Oldman, and Jason Clarke, when “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” comes out on July 11th

Justin Bieber played the main stage at Coachella.
Okay, well, technically he performed for a single song, and as a surprise guest during the performance of Chance The Rapper, a buzzed-about indie MC with no proper album to his name yet. But technicalities aside, Bieber was there, white bucket hat and black tee, on the Coachella stage for the first time. And it wasn't even that surprising.
Bieber's appearance came on Sunday afternoon, hours after Beyonce made a cameo during her sister Solange's set to dance out to "Losing You." Bieber also followed Gwen Stefani, who played her solo pop smash "Hollaback Girl" during Pharrell Williams' guest star-laden hits parade. Katy Perry had been spotted taking in another Coachella weekend long before Bieber and Chance combined for "Confident." And once Bieber concluded his cameo, his buddy Drake was still on deck, getting ready to stop by Jhene Aiko's evening set to run through “From Time.’
This year was hardly the first Coachella to boast occasional cameos from mainstream stars -- Perry has been a Coachella fixture for years, Rihanna stopped by the Indio fest in 2012 to guest with Calvin Harris, and R. Kelly took the stage during Phoenix's headlining set last year. Surprise performers aside, however, pop music was engrained into the 2014 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival lineup, arguably more than ever before. Ellie Goulding, Pharrell Williams, Lorde, Foster The People, Bastille, Aloe Blacc, Lana Del Rey, Calvin Harris, Capital Cities… all of these artists can claim recent mainstream moments, and each of them contributed to the feeling that the longtime alternative mecca was slowly shifting gears. Every hour or two, it seemed like another Top 40 hit was wafting across the polo grounds -- and that's not even counting the hour in which Girl Talk mashed them all together.(Does anyone have a link to this because yes plz.)
Contributing to Coachella's subtle pop makeover was the general feeling that rock music was being shrugged off by this year's festivalgoers. The crowd for EDM upstart Martin Garrix's Friday night performance dwarfed that of post-punk legends the Replacements, who were playing their first West Coast show in 22 years and did so in front of a few hundred people. Superchunk similarly soldiered through an under-attended performance, entertaining a half-empty Gobi tent while Rudimental blasted its international hits to an overflowing crowd in the adjacent Mojave tent. Performers like Muse, Queens of the Stone Age and AFI lost huge chunks of its audiences to catchier concurrent sets from Skrillex, Empire of the Sun and Bastille, and when Arcade Fire's Win Butler took a shot against the lack of "bands still playing actual instruments at this festival" during the band's headlining set, the line felt like a territorial jab at the shifting nature of the festival, which sounded a lot different when Arcade Fire headlined three years earlier.
One month after the emerging artists that played this year's South By Southwest festival were forced to coexist with Lady Gaga and Pitbull, this year's Coachella often felt like the little guys were being edged out by the pop behemoths. At the same time, however, the 2014 festival was home to an unusually high number of alternative artists that had just happened to find a gateway to mainstream audiences over the past few months. How could festival bookers forecast the out-of-nowhere Top 10 hits by Bastille, Capital Cities or Aloe Blacc when the lineup was being cobbled together? Lorde told her sizable audience that she was booked for Coachella 2014 in May of 2013 -- months before anyone in the U.S. knew that she had never seen a diamond in the flesh. Perhaps this year's Coachella actually underlined how much pop music has bended toward alternative music over the past year, with Top 40 radio pairing party hits by Miley, Gaga and Katy with offbeat singles like "Royals" and "Pompeii."
Likewise, most of the pop-leaning artists booked at this year's festival have reached new career peaks in the months leading up to Coachella. Pharrell was always going to be one of the bigger draws at this year's festival, but his performance turned into even more of an event when "Happy" became the most inescapable song of 2014's first quarter. Ellie Goulding was similarly expanded her profile over the past year thanks to a string of recent hits like "Burn" and "I Need Your Love" to bundle with her 2012 breakout "Lights." Even Lana Del Rey, who conjured a crowd as cultish as a Beyonce audience, never had anything resembling a pop radio single before Cedric Gervais' remix of "Summertime Sadness" unexpectedly took hold last year. It's not like Coachella booked a slew of established pop performers for its 2014 bill; instead, a handful of artists have recently grown into that category, and their audiences responded in kind.
So the pop takeover of this year's Coachella was all happenstance, right? Not exactly. Let's face it: Coachella has a "cool factor" that few U.S. music events have been able to duplicate, and an amount of media coverage that only a few festivals can also boast. Set in the gorgeous California desert just a few hours south of Hollywood, Coachella remains a posh experience of music absorption, the first major summer festival of each year, and a destination that attracts celebrities and, thus, eyeballs. How many of Chance The Rapper's other festival performances will Justin Bieber attend this summer after Coachella? Likely none. As long as Coachella maintains that glossy appeal and ability to get people talking, the pop sphere will try to puncture it, as it successfully did in 2014.
Is being too mainstream really Coachella problem?
Do you think the pop scene is going to adopt more and more "alternative" acts? Will rock music be doomed to "uncoolsville" for the next few years? Predict the future of the music scene, ONTD!
It's a Housewives summit! Carole Radziwill and Kristen Taekman recently swapped saucy stories with their West Coast counterparts, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Foster, for an upcoming crossover episode of the Real Housewives of New York City.
The ladies who lunch gathered at Sarabeth's in Manhattan, where they gabbed about everything from their past and present dating lives to crazy nights out.
First on the menu was Radziwill's talked-about romance with George Clooney. "We dated literally during the Eisenhower administration," she told the girls of the "lovely" actor, 52.
Radziwill's romance with the hunky actor was revealed back in 2012 during an NYC Housewives episode that featured the the 50-year-old author on the beach. An impressed Sonja Morgan quipped, "Look at the ass on Carole… No wonder Clooney did her for a year."
Glanville, 41, also dished about 36-year-old Taekman's epic Las Vegas bachelorette party back in 2004, and said she caught the bride-to-be "kissing" an Elvis impersonator. The lunch, though, was a judgment-free zone. Ridziwill added, "We've all kissed some frogs -- and some princes, too."
Elsewhere: Ramona is back from her family trip to Africa and she's collected a new-found inner peace. Kristen and Carole meet their old friends Brandi and Yolanda from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Heather and Jonathan host a 10-year anniversary party, but when Heather finds out that some of her "friends" decided to boycott the event, a tempest of anger forms.
Fans of are loving the new season. Examiner got the opportunity to talk to Sonja about the show via email and find out her thoughts on her interns, drama, and even her newest project. This season has already aired five episodes, but the drama is just starting to heat up.
Are you really as close with your interns as it looks like?
Yes because that's the deal. The interns are working side-by-side with me because they are here to learn and I get an extra set of hands to help me out while they observe. They are so quick on the computers! I find it so helpful when I need to download something. I have to say I'm getting pretty good myself with the social media. I even received a state Senate award for my entrepreneurial use of social media to develop my lifestyle brand. My interns and I get pretty close working side-by-side and we have dinner together every night at six pm to talk about how the day went down. We I invite other people from Team Sonja that we film with so we can all reciprocate and grow together. It's rather gratifying.
What did you think of the woman's rude reactions when you took off your jacket?
I don't think much of her comments. I've seen it many times in my life since I was a young girl It's usually a sign of jealousy and someone who is looking for attention. They usually come out in the wash. My team is comprised of people who want to help other people and grow together. We inspire each other to be the best possible so we can be ourselves in our unique ways and embrace our differences. That's why New York is known as the city of tolerance.
Everyone has been anticipating your toaster oven and love your recipes whatever happened?
When I met with the department store they let me know that you can't put Sonja Morgan in a Toaster oven box they want a much more extensive international lifestyle brand. I have nailed down a very concise brand ID and seven beautiful logos. Now at my showroom in the garment district I am meeting with different investors to take it global. That is the goal at this point.
The drama is carrying over into the cast members’ real lives, as falling ratings are prompting the knives to come out, a source close to the show tells us.
“There’s paranoia because they all think they’re going to be fired,” our insider says. We hear Bravo has informed the ladies that this week’s episode of the reality series drew just 1.2 million viewers, a low for the show.
“That’s the lowest since the very first episode of the very first season, when they were introducing the show to America,” says our tipster.
The only one who isn’t shaking in her boots is Ramona Singer. We’re told Singer wasn’t on the most recent episode because she was traveling in Africa when it was filmed. “Ramona was off on a trip, so now she thinks the ratings are low because the show was lacking her presence,” sniffs our source. “She believes she is the star of the show.”
Offscreen, Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson remain BFFs. They are united against Aviva Drescher in a catfight over who has the best writing chops. Radziwill has penned two books, while Drescher recently released Leggy Blonde: A Memoir. “Aviva looks at the show like a job. It’s fun and useful, but she has her husband and kids and a great life and could care less about the drama,” says our source.
Meanwhile, Co-Founder & CEO of New York Image Consultant Amanda Sanders, slated to become a full-time cast member, was pushed into a tiny role on the series by Bravo execs in favor of new Housewife Kristen Taekman.
We’ve learned that the other Housewives ganged up to shaft Sanders and rooted for Taekman to get a bigger role, even though Sanders had a contract with Bravo to star on the series.
“Watching Kristen is like watching paint dry,” one insider says. “Carole kept calling Amanda ‘Mindy.’ Heather went after Amanda and wanted her off the air because she’s best friends with Kristen. It was that ‘Mean Girls’ gang-up mentality.”
Another source says Sanders was “awful” on camera, bullying her way into scenes she shouldn’t have been in. We hear she is not in any more episodes because she inserted herself into the wrong scenes.
As for the low ratings, a Bravo insider says they were expected. “The show was off the air for 15 months, so it’s impressive this many people tuned back in. The network is confident the audience will continue to build.”
