Dating Arrow producer Greg Berlanti certainly has its perks. It undoubtedly gives Robbie Rogers access to some of Hollywood’s biggest power players. I’m sure the genesis of this came about during some fabulous gay social gathering.

Deadline.com reports that Universal Television has optioned a comedy series inspired by Rogers’ life. Robbie became the first openly gay man to compete in a top North American professional sports league, the LA Galaxy.

Craig Zadan and Neil Meron’s Storyline Entertainment will develop and produce a comedy series inspired by the 27-year-old athlete’s experiences. With Zadan and Meron on board, I have high hopes for this project. The duo have given us Hairspray, Smash and NBC’s live Sound of Music musical.

Would you watch a comedy based on Rogers’ life? Who do you think should play him on the potential series? My vote is for Zac Efron. Weigh in below.

Thor Is Now A Woman

If you thought Archie’s death was shocking, this one will rock your comic world even more. Thor is now the Goddess of Thunder. Time to take those estrogen pills Chris Hemsworth ;)

Marvel Comics announced it’s reintroducing the hammer-wielding superhero as a woman in a new comic series due out this October.

Marvel editor Wil Moss says, “The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription…” He continues, “The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute – she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!”

Writer Jason Aaron explains further, “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before.”

The female Thor is now Marvel Comics’ eighth title to feature a lead female character. The move is an effort to bring new readers and to appeal to women and girls, whom have long been ignored in comics. Whether this gimmick attracts new readers or diminishes readership remains to be seen. I predict the latter. Check out a couple of illustrations of the new Thor below and weigh in afterward.

After releasing teasers and preview pics, Paris Hilton finally unveiled the official music video for “Come Alive.” Ever wonder what goes on in that pretty little blond head of hers? Wonder no more. The 33-year-old heiress invites her fans to take a peak into her magical world filled with unicorns, rainbows, flowers and cotton candy clouds. Here’s what Hilton said about the Hannah Lux Davis-directed clip.

“It’s all about love and how it makes you feel alive. So when I was coming up with the concept for the music video, I wanted it to be something that was very magical, ethereal, just very fantasy like, that’s why I wanted to have a unicorn in it because I just think they’re such beautiful, magical creatures,” – Paris Hilton told E!

“Come Alive” serves as the latest single off Hilton’s upcoming sophomore album, which is scheduled for release later this year via Young Money Records. Watch Paris channel her inner Victoria’s Secret Angel below complete with feathery wings and *gasp* bangs. Be prepared for a sparkly affair. For me, it’s a poor man’s mashup of Rihanna’s “Only Girl In The World” and Katy Perry’s “California Gurls.”

When Rita Ora first burst on the scene, many compared her to Rihanna. With the blond wig, Ora looks remarkably a whole like Rihanna did on British Vogue back in 2011. Regardless, Rita looks absolutely stunning in the Fall/Winter 2014 ad campaign for Roberto Cavalli. I bet Calvin Harris is regretting dumping the 23-year-old pop star. Check out more photos snapped by Francesco Carrozzini below.

Things on the Anne Hathaway front have been relatively quiet lately. Wonder what the Academy Award-winning actress has been up to? It appears donning drag and pretending to be a musician.

Hathaway, along with Brie Larson and Kristen Stewart star in Jenny Lewis’ “Just One Of The Guys” music video. The three wear white suits before taking on bro personas in track suits and baseball caps. The Beck-produced single is off Lewis’ forthcoming studio album Voyager. Give the video a look below.

Previously, it was announced James Franco would play ex-gay activist Michael Glatze in Michael. The film executive produced by Gus Van Sant is based on the New York Times Magazine article by Benoit Denizet-Lewis titled “My Ex-Gay Friend.”

“This isn’t just a story about an ‘ex-gay,’” director Justin Kelly said. “It’s actually a very relatable story about the power of belief and the desire to belong.”

Michael tells the story of a man who was once considered a leader in the LGBT community but later rejected his homosexuality to become a Christian minister. Glatze founded Young Gay America (YGA) magazine and edited the teen-twink glossy, XY. The controversial figure also made a documentary film, Jim in Bold, which discussed gay teen suicide.

Not loving Alex & Sierra’s debut single “Scarecrow?” Truthfully, it’s alright, but since I adore the X Factor act so much, I’ve supported it.

Little Did You Know,” on the other hand is simply sensational. The stripped-down ballad is pure money and absolutely everything you loved about the duo on the FOX show. It reminds me a lot of their “Say Something” performance. Sierra’s vocals are heavenly while Alex’s sexy rasp perfectly contrast and complement his love’s voice.

I can see why Columbia Records chose “Scarecrow” as the act’s debut single. It’s uptempo and has that pop-folk thing that’s really hot these days. Sadly, the lead cut isn’t doing much damage on the charts or on radio.

Hopefully, “Little Did You Know” gets an official release complete with an accompanying video. Right now, it appears it might be just a buzz single. If you pre-order their forthcoming album, It’s About Us out October 7, “Little Did I Know” will download instantly. Give it a listen below and weigh in afterward.

Bravo Previews Its First Scripted Series

For once, Bravo is airing a show featuring a group of women not fighting. Has hell frozen over? Watch out Housewives, there’s a new group of women vying to become Andy Cohen’s favorite bitches.

For the first time in years, the network launches a scripted series. Based on the best-selling Girlfriends’ Guides book series by Vicki Iovine, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce stars Lisa Edelstein as a self-help author in her 40s embarking on a divorce from her husband (Paul Adelstein). She relies on her friends played by Janeane Garofalo and Beau Garrett to transition to this new phase of her life.

“When we saw Girlfriends’ Guide, we said this is the thing we’ve been waiting for,” explains development exec Lara Spotts. “Marti Noxon is such a fantastic writer, and her script was so funny and so real. She writes from such a place of truth that it felt like something very much in the zeitgeist. It’s hilarious, it’s set in a very Bravo-feeling world…it really checked so many of the boxes that we were looking for.”

Bravo ordered 13 episodes for the series’ first season. Carrie Fisher and Laverne Cox have been tapped to make guest appearances in future episodes. Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce is set to debut on December 2 at 10 pm. Marti Noxon (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) developed the series and wrote the pilot episode. Check out the trailer below.
