Kelly Osbourne Officially Quits Fashion Police

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Earlier this week, Kelly Osbourne threatened to quit E!’s Fashion Police over dreadlock-gate. Even though Giuliana Rancic apologized to Zendaya for her culturally-insensitive comments and Zendaya accepted her mea culpa, Kelly is still jumping ship.

“I WILL NOT BE DRAGED INTO THIS! The situation is being rectified like ADULTS by both parties. I hope you can leave it to them & do the same,” Kelly previously tweeted.

After five years on the panel, the network confirmed that Osbourne quit. Read their official statement below.

Lady Gaga Joins American Horror Story Franchise

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Make your reservations now. Mother Monster is ready to check you in.

Apparently, the fifth season of the popular horror anthology is American Horror Story: Hotel. Not only that, but Lady Gaga has snagged a series regular role. The 28-year-old made the announcement in a video teaser via Twitter.

This marks Gaga’s biggest acting gig to date. She’s previously made minor appearances in such films like Machete Kills, Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For and Men in Black 3.

The “Bad Romance” singer is clearly re-inventing herself these days. From classing it up with Tony Bennett, stunning the entire world with her Oscars performance and now this. It’s definitely a far cry from the same woman who once wore a meat dress. Check out the announcement below which could’ve easily been taken from her Fame era.

Bryan Singer Adds Ben Hardy To X-Men Apocalypse Cast

In: Donovan, Movies

Bryan Singer is wise and has good taste. He knows not to pass on a good thing when he sees it.

Ben Hardy initially auditioned to play a young Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse but lost out the role to Tye Sheridan. Singer was so impressed with him, he cast the 24-year-old actor in another role. No word on exactly what key role he’ll play, but speculation is that it might Angel. Hardy is best known for his work in the BBC soap, EastEnders.

Ben joins fellow newbies Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey) and Sheridan (Cyclops) in the superhero franchise. They’ll be welcomed by a returning star-studded cast including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Evan Peters.

Get to know this sexy little twunk in several shirtless photos below. X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled to hit theaters on May 27, 2016.

The upcoming Season 20 of Dancing With The Stars marks the tenth anniversary of the popular dance competition. To mark the milestone, producers have fashioned a brand spanking new gold mirrorball trophy to give to the winner. Personally, I prefer the original one. The gold one looks a little tacky.

So who’s in the running? It’s not the most star-studded cast, but it’s an interesting one. The NFL’s first openly-gay player Michael Sam along with double amputee motivational speaker Noah Galloway provide the eye candy for the Spring 2015 edition. Fingers crossed that their respective female pros put them in very revealing outfits often.

Suzanne Somers and Patti LaBelle are representing for the veterans while Hunger Games actress Willow Shields checks in for the tween demo. Shields, at 14-years-old, is the youngest ever to compete on the show. For me, the addition of Rumer Willis is the most fascinating. I never thought I’d see Bruce Willis or Demi Moore in the audience, but they may just pop up to support their daughter.

The odds-on favorite to take Season 20 is Olympian Nastia Liukin. Athletes have a great track record on the show. To boot, she’s partnered up with the winningest pro, Derek Hough. He wasn’t supposed to take part this season, but the powers-that-be made it happen last minute. Speaking of Hough, his cousin, Riker Lynch, is also one of the stars strapping on their ballroom shoes. Check out the entire cast below, along with watching the reveal on Good Morning America.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch initially was to end after Neil Patrick Harris’ run but has enjoyed healthy ticket sales even after Harris’ departure. It’d be silly to close down the Tony-winning production now.

Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall and the musical’s co-creator and its original star, John Cameron Mitchell, have all stepped in to take on the titular role since. In April, the production will see another cast rotation. Find out which Glee actor is playing the East German transgender singer next.

Christina Aguilera Heads To Nashville

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Hoping that Christina Aguilera records a country album? Sadly, you’re out of luck. Instead, the 34-year-old singer will show off her acting chops on Nashville. She just booked a multi-episode arc on the ABC drama.

People reports that X-tina will play Jade St. John. She’s described as ” a pop superstar who’s been going pretty much nonstop since she broke out a decade ago. She arrives to Nashville for a two-night stand at the Bridgestone, but her real dream is to record a country album – if only her label, who wants her to stay on brand as a pop star, would let her break out of her golden cage.”

Here’s hoping Aguilera does a duet with Hayden Panettiere. Better yet, a physical catfight between the two blondes. That would be ideal for May sweeps, right?

In addition to this new gig, Christina heads back to The Voice for Season 8, producing a TV series set in Las Vegas for ABC Family and prepping a new album. Excited for the “Dirrty” singer to pop on Nashville? Weigh in below.


With her breakout role in Orange Is The New Black, Laverne Cox became the first openly transgender person to be nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in an acting category. The 30-year-old actress was also the first openly transgender person to appear on the cover of TIME magazine. Cox continues to pave the way for the transgender community and could make history with her new gig.

Cox has just been cast in a new CBS legal drama titled Doubt. She’ll l play Cameron Wirth, an ivy-league educated lawyer who is “as competitive as she is compassionate.” Because she’s experienced injustice first hand, she will “fight all the harder for her clients.”

If her pilot gets picked up for the 2015-2016 season, it will mark the first leading role for a transgender in broadcast television history. You go guuurrrrl!!! Grey’s Anatomy alums Tony Phelan and Joan Rater will pen the script for the new TV project.

Does this new CBS drama interest you? Is Cox one of your favorite characters on OITNB? Weigh in below.


Teen Wolf is adding a hunky Pretty Little Liar to the pack. MTV just announced that Cody Christian, who plays Aria’s (Lucy Hale) buff younger brother on the ABC Family hit, is heading to Beacon Hills for the supernatural series’ fifth season.

Cody will play a senior named Theo who moves to the spooky Californian town. The athletic and charming new resident is a lone wolf in search of a new pack.

Christian’s other television credits include stints on Grey’s Anatomy, True Blood and Austin & Ally. He’s also appeared in the feature films The Starving Games and Kill The Irishman.

The 19-year-old actor isn’t shy about sharing all his hard work at the gym to his followers. Thank God he’s legal. Check out some pics below.
