CBS is keeping it in the superhero family for its DC Comics series, Supergirl. The network has tapped two stars who’ve previously donned the red cape to appear in the pilot.
Dean Cain played the Man of Steel in Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman back in the 90s on ABC. Meanwhile, Helen Slater played Supergirl in the campy 1984 feature film. Coincidentally, both the 48-year-old actor and 51-year-old actress appeared in another Superman spin-off, Smallville on The WB. No word on what roles they are playing.
They join Glee alum Melissa Benoist who plays the female superhero in the new CBS offering. Supergirl is slated to premiere on CBS this fall. Find out who else is starring in the show below and also check out a photo of Benoist and Slater together on set.
With a month to go before the highly-anticipated Season 7 premiere of The Real Housewives of New York, Bravo unleashes the first trailer. Four years after her exit from the franchise, Bethenny Frankel returns to the show that made her. The Skinnygirl is back and brings along wither her, her biting tongue.
She joins returning cast members Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson, Kristen Taekman, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, and new addition Dorinda Medley. Speaking of the newbie, not feeling her yet. But who knows how I’ll feel after a couple of episodes.
It’ll be interesting to see who Frankel goes head-to-head with. I have a feeling that it’ll be fellow entrepreneur Thomson. It’s going to be an epic Bethenny-Heather showdown. I can’t wait. RHONY returns on Bravo on April 7. Check out the trailer below.
This season, it’s Bethenny like you have never seen her before as she struggles with finalizing her divorce, looking for a new place to live, and coping being a single mother. In another emotional journey, Ramona’s 25-year relationship with Mario ends as she looks to her longtime friend, Dorinda, for support. Meanwhile, Dorinda is also in the process of moving forward with her life after the passing of her husband more than three years ago. She is in a new relationship, but her friends and daughter question if he is Mr. Right or just Mr. Right Now. One woman who never seeks anyone’s approval is Carole. Her love life is in full bloom with a hot younger chef, but a call from overseas sends her off to deal with her past. Sonja, frustrated by the lack of encouragement for her businesses from the ladies last year, is on a mission to prove that she is not only a socialite, but also a serious businesswoman. Cleaning house, LuAnn is selling her Hamptons home and taking a closer look at the friendships that are not working in her life. Kristen and Josh have a newfound appreciation for each other as Kristen sets her sights on expanding business opportunities. Never shy to give her opinion or rub people the wrong way, Heather was ready to play nice with Bethenny, however it seems the “skinny” on their relationship isn’t quite so “yummie.”
Earlier this week, Kelly Osbourne threatened to quit E!’s Fashion Police over dreadlock-gate. Even though Giuliana Rancic apologized to Zendaya for her culturally-insensitive comments and Zendaya accepted her mea culpa, Kelly is still jumping ship.
“I WILL NOT BE DRAGED INTO THIS! The situation is being rectified like ADULTS by both parties. I hope you can leave it to them & do the same,” Kelly previously tweeted.
After five years on the panel, the network confirmed that Osbourne quit. Read their official statement below.
On April 10, Netflix unleashes all 13 episodes of Daredevil‘s first season. Don’t expect to hear from me for a couple days as I binge watch this new offering from the streaming service.
Charlie Cox plays Matt Murdock who was blinded as a young boy but blessed with extraordinary senses. By day he fights justice as a lawyer and by night as the superhero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. True Blood alum Deborah Ann Woll plays Matt’s secretary/love interest Karen Page.
Daredevil is the first of four live-action adventures based on Marvel Comics. Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Marvel’s Iron Fist, and Marvel’s Luke Cage will all lead to Marvel’s The Defenders where all the protagonists from each series will reunite.
Check out a motion version of the Matt Murdock character poster below.
The undeniable breakout hit of the season continued its ascension to the stratosphere. The FOX hip-hop drama grew its viewership for an incredible seventh week in a row.
Empire‘s new benchmark is now 13.8 million viewers and a 5.3 rating among adults 18-49. It’s the highest demo rating for a regularly scheduled program on broadcast network in five years. With the season finale just around the corner, I fully expect its unprecedented streak to continue. Can it hit the 6.0 rating?
Taraji P. Henson and Terence Howard grace this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly. If you can’t get enough of Cookie and of the soapy program, definitely check out the publication’s feature.
Speaking of soapy goodness, on last night’s episode Jamal (Jussie Smollett) publicly came out in stellar fashion. He reworked the lyrics to one of Luscious’ (Howard) hit, “You’re So Beautiful.” The result was a performance to remember. By far, this is my favorite track from the show yet. Check it out below, if you missed it last night.
Make your reservations now. Mother Monster is ready to check you in.
Apparently, the fifth season of the popular horror anthology is American Horror Story: Hotel. Not only that, but Lady Gaga has snagged a series regular role. The 28-year-old made the announcement in a video teaser via Twitter.
This marks Gaga’s biggest acting gig to date. She’s previously made minor appearances in such films like Machete Kills, Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For and Men in Black 3.
The “Bad Romance” singer is clearly re-inventing herself these days. From classing it up with Tony Bennett, stunning the entire world with her Oscars performance and now this. It’s definitely a far cry from the same woman who once wore a meat dress. Check out the announcement below which could’ve easily been taken from her Fame era.
The Sound of Music tribute at the 87th Academy Awards was a much-needed boost of adrenaline in an otherwise boring telecast. Lady Gaga was universally praised for it. Julie Andrews raved about Mother Monster’s rendition of the iconic songs and even gave her a heartwarming hug on stage.
One person who had a massively different take on the performance was Shonda Rhimes. The prolific television producer, responsible for so many OMG moments on ABC Thursday night, slammed the performance. She typically exhibits excellent taste when it comes to selecting songs featured on her shows. Perhaps she stole one too many of Olivia Pope’s gigantic glasses of wine.
“That was not okay. I mean, Idina is there. She is right there. RIGHT THERE. And oh dear God, Julie had to hear that. #Oscars2015.” – Shonda Rhimes via Twitter
When fans disagreed with her sentiment, Rhimes replied, “I probably did miss the point. Everyone else loved it. That’s okay.”
While I love Idina Menzel, I’m glad producers chose Lady Gaga. She slayed it. Gaga’s charming performance was powerfully restrained and included just the right amount theatricality. She stole the show in my opinion. Sometimes her outrageous antics take away focus from how gifted a vocalist she truly is. Relive the most memorable moment at the 2015 Oscars below.
At long last, Lauren Conrad can finally have piece of mind. I’m sure she’s spent countless nights hoping her former BFF would forgive her. NOT!!!
The 28-year-old reality star is currently on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. During an emotional exercise, Heidi ‘forgives’ LC for ‘ruining’ her life. It’s good to see that Heidi Montag is as cray as ever.
“I was the best friend you’ve ever had,” Montag tells a Conrad stand-in, adding, “Lauren, I forgive you for being so insecure in your life and so frustrated for everything that you went through that you felt like you had to blame it on me because that was easier. I forgive you for trying to ruin my life.”
I don’t know what show she was watching, but if memory serves me correct, it was the other way around. Heidi’s husband, Spencer Pratt, also has some bottled up issues regarding their former show. He unleashes his anger about a former television producer who tried to ‘destroy’ his life and marriage.
This post probably only appeals to diehard fans of The Hills, like myself. Ashamedly, I was obsessed with the MTV reality show. I couldn’t get enough of Audriana’s ceiling eyes, Lauren’s braids, Brody’s hotness, Whitney’s expressions and Jen Bunney. Being totally sarcastic on that last one :)
Watch both Heidi and Spencer confront their personal demons below. Will this finally be the closure they both need? I highly doubt it.
