Scandal: Mama Pope Lives & Books Return Gig

In: Donovan, TV Shows
scandal-khandi-alexander

As if Olivia Pope’s life wasn’t tumultuous enough. Her terrorist mother returns to cause more trouble on the Scandal midseason finale, airing November 20.

Khandi Alexander reprises her role as the deliciously evil Maya Pope. She was last seen in the Season 3 finale being held captive by Papa Pope in the hole. Both Fitz and Olivia believed she was dead (again). Details on her return are being kept under wraps, as per usual with the show.

Her return couldn’t have come at a better time if you ask me. I love Scandal, but the show seems to have lost its OMG mojo during Season 4. Perhaps Shonda Rhimes is too busy with How To Get Away With Murder? Whatever the reason, it’s just not the same.

Also, I might be in the minority, but I prefer Olivia (Kerry Washington) with Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) than Fitz (Tony Goldwyn). Anyone else Team Jake?

Excited for Alexander’s return? Who do you think Olivia’s true soulmate is? Sound off below.

It feels like forever since the last season of Celebrity Apprentice aired. After a year break, the reality guilty pleasure returns on January 4, 2015 on NBC. I hate to admit it, but I’m quite excited even though The Donald gives me major gas.

Included in the bunch are a couple of Real Housewives, a former Cosby kid, musicians, Olympians, reporters, former heartthrobs and reality television’s most polarizing mom. If you don’t recognize many of the faces in the photo above, check out the entire cast below.

The 41-year-old entertainer recently revealed he passed on a role that would’ve seen his husband David Burtka and himself playing the slain gay couple in Murder House. Neil Patrick Harris will finally get his second chance to appear on American Horror Story.

It’s been confirmed that Harris and Burtka will guest star on Freak Show. Harris will pop up in the last two episodes as a chameleon salesman, while his better half will appear in the season finale. Burtka’s part hasn’t been revealed yet but it will involve Jessica Lange’s character.

This isn’t the first time NPH has appeared in a Ryan Murphy production. He popped up in Glee‘s first season finale. That role earned him an Emmy for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series. Will lightning strike again?

Neil and David aren’t the only ones recently announced to appear on Freak Show. Find out which Asylum alum is returning below.

Empire Amps The Crazy Factor With Courtney Love

In: Donovan, TV Shows
courtney-love-empire-show

Courtney Love is one crazy ass bitch and I say that with all of the utmost respect. She’s at often times very unpredictable which is why I love her. Plus I was a huge fan of her band Hole back in the day.

The 50-year-old musician has just joined the cast of midseason hip-hop drama Empire in a recurring guest star role. She will play Elle Dallas, “a hard rock powerhouse, who is part of Empire Entertainment’s stable of artists.”

Are you kidding me? Love and Naomi Campbell on the same show? This is going to be beyond epic. Empire can’t get here soon enough.

This latest acting gig comes on the heels of Hole’s recurring stint on FX’s Sons of Anarchy. It’s nice to see Courtney dabbling in acting again. Years ago she made a splash in such memorable roles in The People vs. Larry Flynt, The Man in the Moon and 200 Ciagarettes.

The FOX drama stars Terrence Howard as Lucious Lyon, the head of a record label. Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Cuba Gooding, Jr. (Jerry Maguire), Gabourey Sidibe (American Horror Story), Derek Luke (The Americans) and Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club) round out the cast. Are you excited for Love’s addition? Sound off below.

It’s official!!! The SkinnyGirl is heading back to the Real Housewives Of New York.

After several weeks of rumors and speculation, Bethenny Frankel announced her return to the popular reality franchise. She’ll be joining cast members Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson, Kristen Taekman, Sonja Morgan and LuAnn de Lesseps and Ramona Singer for Season 7. Reportedly, Singer will be demoted to recurring status.

I have to say I’m a little surprised Frankel decided to go down this route again. It’s not like she’s hurting for money. Clearly, this is all about the fame.

Perhaps, Bravo finally convinced her as part of some quid pro quo deal. Can we expect another Bethenny-related series on the network as part of the negotiations? Will Frankel’s longtime rival Jill Zarin also return. If Bravo has their way, then yes. If Frankel stands her ground, then no. Weigh in below after reading Frankel and ringleader Andy Cohen’s statements below.

Recently, rumors of Gwyneth Paltrow and Neil Patrick Harris possibly guest starring on American Horror Story: Freak Show surfaced. If it’s true, hopefully Harris doesn’t let this opportunity slip through his fingers.

When asked which role was the one that got away, the 41-year-old actor revealed it was for Murder House. In an interview with SiriusXM Entertainment, he explains the gay couple murdered in the house played by Zachary Quinto and Teddy Sears was originally offered to his husband David Burtka and himself.

In the end, it’s not like it hurt his career. NPH has done quite well for himself, winning a Tony recently and being named the host of the 2015 Academy Awards. Find out below why he turned it down even though his hubby wanted to do it.

Neil Patrick Harris Hosting 87th Academy Awards

In: Donovan, Movies, TV Shows
neil-patrick-harris-oscar-host

Someone has graduated to the big leagues. After hosting the Tony Awards and Emmy Awards previously, the 41-year-old actor has been tapped to host the 87th annual Academy Awards. The perfect man for the job if you ask me.

If sometime in the future, Neil Patrick Harris is asked to host the Grammys, he could be the first person to have a hosting EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscars and Tony) to his credit. It’s rare for a performer to win each of those statues, but hosting all events has never been done. If anyone can do it, it’s Harris.

The How I Met Your Mother actor takes over Ellen DeGeneres who hosted last year’s event which was seen by 43 million viewers. It saw ratings rise 6%, becoming the most-watched entertainment broadcast in 10 years. Can he topped those numbers? More importantly, can he outdo DeGeneres’ epic selfie pic?

Neil Meron and Craig Zadan have been recruited to produce the Oscars for the third year in a row. The annual extravaganza will take place Sunday, February 22, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Do you think NPH is a great choice to host the event? He has a very similar hosting style to Hugh Jackman. I fully expect an extremely gay-centric production. I.CANT.WAIT!!! Watch his video announcement below and weigh in afterward.
