Deadline reports her character is “a demanding venture capitalist who becomes involved in Lyon family drama. A Forbes list billionairess, Mimi is a lover of hip hop music, social trends, high-end fashion and beautiful women.”

Julia Roberts is once again teaming up with the director that made her into a household name. Without a doubt, Garry Marshall put the 47-year-old actress on the map with the blockbuster Pretty Woman. The two joined forces again in Runaway Bride and Valentine’s Day.

Deadline is reporting Roberts will take part in Marshall’s next film set around yet another holiday. Mother’s Day “tells intertwining stories about the lives of several mothers as the title holiday approaches.” Find out below which actresses are in negotiations to also appear in the film

A Georgia Peach has left the building. Not just any one, but the Big Kahuna.

After years of teasing her exit, Linnethia Monique Leakes aka NeNe Leakes finally pulled the trigger. The 48-year-old reality star announced she’s leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Not only is she the biggest star of the series, but arguably the network’s largest name. RHOA will never be the same again.

This was definitely a hard decision for me,” Leakes tells PEOPLE. “Me and my husband [Gregg Leakes] have been going back and forth on it for weeks now. But my contract is up and I just think this is the right time. This is my opportunity to spread my wings and do different things.”

Here’s one American Horror Story alum I didn’t expect to appear on Season 5. I assumed Emma Roberts would’ve been tied up filming Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens over at FOX. It seems Murphy and Roberts found a way to make it work.

In an interview with Zap2it, Ryan spilled the news. “She’s still going to do a couple episodes of ‘Horror Story’ at the end, I think,” he says. He adds, “She comes at the end. She comes and she has a great thing with Evan Peters at the end.”

Emma will head over to American Horror Story: Hotel after production on Scream Queens ends. Filming with Peters should be interesting. The once-engaged couple reportedly ended their relationship just weeks ago.

Excited that Roberts is returning? Weigh in below.
