It’s official! Lynda Carter is set to appear in the second season of Supergirl. The news is hardly surprising given that executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg previously expressed trying to snag the 64-year-old actress for the show’s first season. It appears all their wooing finally paid off.

Sadly, Carter who’s famous for playing Wonder Woman, won’t be playing the Amazonian warrior princess. Instead, she’ll play a different role. Find out who below.

Ever since there were rumblings years ago that American Idol producers were contemplating filling up the panel with former alums, I’ve wanted to see Adam Lambert judge a singing competition. Today, I finally get my wish. Albeit a different show but still.

The 34-year-old singer is heading down under to join The X Factor Australia for the show’s eighth season. The “Ghost Town” singer will sit alongside Iggy Azalea and Guy Sebastian. A fourth judge will be revealed at a later date.

“I am very excited to join X Factor in Australia and am looking forward to helping people shine their brightest,” the singer told the Daily Telegraph in an interview.“Australia has always been one of my favorite places to tour. The Aussies I’ve met are so kind and good humored – so the thought of getting to live in Sydney is exciting.”

Though he was never a full-time judge on Idol, Lambert stepped in once for Keith Urban during the auditions and proved he could hold his own, providing valid and constructive feedback. Will you watch Lambert on The X Factor? Sound off below.

Start your engines folks. There’s going to be plenty of shade during this summer. Logo just revealed all the queens returning for the second installment of RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race.

“The girls dropped whatever they were doing to do this,” RuPaul told EW.com. “We’ve got a hundred girls now, so we could pretty much do All Stars forever.”

Surprisingly, there are only 10 alums returning to compete again. I naturally assumed there would be 12 like the first season. Season 5 is the most represented with four cast members. The most old-school alum, Tatianna, comes from Season 2

“The world needs these queens now more than ever,” declared RuPaul. “We take great pride in providing a platform for our all stars to shine bright. Because fierce is fierce is fierce is fierce is fierce is fierce.”

Season 2 of All-Stars kicks off with a supersized 90-minute premiere on August 25. Check out the entire cast below. Be sure to weigh in on which queen will snatch the elusive crown and title of “America’s next drag superstar” this go-round.

Have mercy!!!

Just because FOX canceled Grandfathered, it doesn’t mean the network doesn’t want to stay in bed with John Stamos. I’d do the same and wouldn’t want to let go of the dreamy 52-year-old either.

The network just announced Stamos is joining Scream Queens as a series regular. The action for Season 2 will take place at a hospital as opposed to a college campus. Reportedly, he’ll play Dr. Brock Holt, “the hospital’s brilliant, but secretive, head surgeon.” I’m long overdue for a physical 😉

I sorta dumped DC’s Legends of Tomorrow after a couple episodes, but I might have to give the superhero show another chance given this casting announcement. Nick Zano has enlisted as a series regular for the second season of The CW series. His addition makes Wentworth Miller leaving as a regular less painful.

I like Zano but the 38-year-old actor is somewhat of a show killer. His last three series- Friends With Better Lives, One Big Happy and Minority Report– were all canceled after one season. And when he was brought in for a multiple episode arc on Melrose Place, Happy Endings and 90210, they all left the air soon after. He’s a little bit cursed 😉 Hopefully, his luck will change with his new gig.

Read below, what his role on the CW show will be.

After four seasons being a Bravo-lebrity, Yolanda Foster revealed she’s leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She shared the news on her Instagram account with a lengthy message.

The announcement comes after weeks of speculation that the 52-year-old former model wasn’t invited back for the show’s seventh season. There were even rumors that Bravo issued a condition should Foster return. Allegedly, she was forbidden from mentioning Lyme Disease.

“Yolanda was a great addition to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Along with our viewers, we have enjoyed and appreciated Yolanda sharing her life events, especially more recently as she struggled with Lyme Disease,” Bravo’s statement read. “We now respect her decision to focus on her health and family. We wish her a full recovery and hope to see her again sometime on the show.”

I will say that I will miss Yolanda. She was one of my favorites on the show. Rumor has it that Kathyrn Edwards was fired and Eileen Davidson demoted to just a ‘Friend.’ Anyone else hoping Brandi Glanville returns? I am.

Read Yolanda’s full statement below and weigh in on the Season 7 cast shakeup afterwards.
