rhoa-season-8-cast

NeNe Leakes who??? For those worried the Real Housewives of Atlanta would suffer after Leakes’ departure, fear not. Bravo is doing everything in their power to ensure its prize pony doesn’t lose its shine.

Though the network never confirms casting rumors until the official trailer drops for the new season, Season 8 is shaping up to be the best yet for RHOA. Both Sheree Whitfield and Marlo Thompson are reportedly back and already stirring up trouble. They recently showed up to Cynthia Bailey’s white party wearing all black. Those stunt queens 😉

Rumors are swirling that Facts of Life actress Kim Fields is taking part as well. However, I’m sure this piece of casting news is the one that will generate the most headlines when the show returns.

TMZ reports transgender model Amiyah Scott is joining the popular franchise. Born Arthur, Scott began her transformation 10 years ago when she was 17. No word if she’ll be a full-fledged wife or just a friend, but I can’t wait to see how she interacts with the other women. Check out a few pics of the gorgeous beauty below.

Tracy Morgan Returns To Saturday Night Live

From 1996 to 2003, Tracy Morgan was a cast member on Saturday Night Live. This October 17, the 46-year-old heads back to his former stomping grounds to host. I fully expect other alums to come back to celebrate this homecoming.

His return marks his first major appearance since he was critically injured in a car accident back in June 2014. That tragedy took the life of his longtime friend and colleague, James McNair.

NBC also revealed two other big names booked to host during SNL’s 41st season. Find out below which two ladies received a call.

alfonso-herrera-urban-cowboy-fox

FOX has found its John Travolta to front their Urban Cowboy television adaptation. Mexican actor Alfonso Herrera will star in the network drama’s pilot based on the classic 1980 flick. Deadline reports his character is a popular rodeo circuit rider and drug cartel mule who is forced to flee Mexico.

As the previously released show logline stated, the reimagining follows Kyle (Herrera) and Gaby as two star-crossed young lovers who pursue their dreams and passions through the sweat of line-dancing in honky-tonks, the grime of the oil refineries and the glamor of modern Texas. It’s about family legacies, starting over, finding true love and the American dream.

Herrera was once a member of a Mexican pop group RBD and appeared in a couple of telenovelas. However, his biggest break stateside came in the recently-renewed Netflix drama Sense8. He was Hernando, the secret lover of sensate, actor Lito Rodriguez played by Miguel Ángel Silvestre. If you need a refresher of their steamy scenes, check out a montage below of their sexiest moments.

For those worried about the eye candy deficiency due to Colton Haynes exiting Arrow. Fear not. Producers have added an equally sculpted stud to fill the void for Season 4.

Before we get to that hot juicy ass, let’s talk about another new addition. Rutina Wesley of True Blood fame heads to Starling City for a multi-episode arc as reported by The Wrap. Meanwhile, Suburgatory and Enlisted alum Parker Young joins the series as a potential love interest for Thea Queen (Willa Holland). Not a bad rebound 😉

If you’re not familiar with all of Parker’s assets, check out a few shirtless pics below, along with his memorable car wash scene from Suburgatory. Holy hotness.

A big screen adaptation of the 90s guilty pleasure has been in the hopper for years. At one point, Justin Timberlake was being wooed to join the cast. A few years later, another actor from Disney’s factory is in the hot seat.

Zac Efron is reportedly in talks to join the upcoming Baywatch movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Neighbors actor will play a young lifeguard with no interest in following the rules. He joins forces with a stalwart veteran played by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to protect their beach from being destroyed by an oil maven.

Johnson plays double duty, also producing the film which hopes to combine comedic, dramatic, and action elements. It is currently being eyed for a 2017 release.

UPDATE: The Rock and Efron have confirmed the casting. Read their tweets below.

The Wiz Live! Finds Its Good Witches

There were rumblings that Beyonce was being courted to play Glinda, the Good Witch of the South. Sadly for the BeyHive, that never came to fruition. Even though, I’m pretty sure the “Drunk In Love” singer was on top of NBC’s wish list, their final pick is a solid one.

Orange Is The New Black actress Uzo Aduba has scored the coveted role. Before her breakout role of Crazy Eyes, the 34-year-old actress appeared on Broadway in Godspell. Find out below who’s playing her sister on The Wiz Live!

mariah-carey-empire-season-2

Empire already has an arsenal of high-wattage stars dropping by for Season 2. Without a doubt, Mariah Carey is the biggest name of them all.

Creator Lee Daniels broke the news during Carey’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony this week. FOX has yet to confirm this casting news, but I’m pretty sure it’s a done deal if Daniels spoke publicly about it.

This isn’t the first time Daniels and Carey have collaborated. They previously worked with each other on Tennessee, Precious and The Butler. No word on what role Mariah will play on the show, but please God, let it involve a threeway catfight with Naomi Campbell and Taraji P. Henson.

Confirmed guest stars for Season 2 include Adam Busch, Andre Royo, Kelly Rowland, Marisa Tomei, Adam Rodriguez, Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz and Alicia Keys. Empire returns September 23 on FOX with an expanded season of 18 episodes. Excited to see Mariah on the small screen? Sound off below.
