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

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.

Someone’s following in Josh Charles’ footsteps and leaving The Good Wife. And that someone is Archie Punjabi who has played Kalinda Sharma since the first season. She’ll exit at the end of Season 6. The Emmy award-winning actress will headline a drama pilot for 20th Century TV, under a new talent deal she recently signed.

“Archie is an Emmy award-winning dramatic actress, and rightly so,” said Sharon Klein, 20th’s executive vice president of casting. “Her work on The Good Wife has been extraordinary, and the time has come for her to star in a project of her own. We couldn’t be happier that it will be with us.”

Showrunners for The Good Wife, Robert and Michelle King, also chimed in. Read their statement below.

It pays to have Ellen DeGeneres on your side. Especially if you want a part in Magic Mike XXL.

Stephen “tWitch” Boss, who’s frequently the guest DJ on her daytime talk show, already has a gig in the highly-anticipated sequel. DeGeneres even waxed his extremely buff torso on camera in preparation for his role. Her sexy gardener Nick, aka Bill Reilich, has now booked a role in the film.

A couple of weeks ago, DeGeneres blindsided one of the film’s producer into taking an impromptu meeting with Reilich. It appears it was all worth it. Channing Tatum called Ellen while filming to tell Bill the great news.

“Nick! What’s up man?” Channing said. “After careful inspection of your ab region, we have deducted that we need you in Magic Mike XXL.”

I wonder if his ab region was the only part of Bill’s anatomy Channing and the powers-that-be checked out. Recently, alleged nude pics of Bill have surfaced. Let’s just he doesn’t disappoint in any department.

Check out Bill learning about his big break below, along with more shirtless photos. I’ve embedded the video of Ellen waxing tWitch as well for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.

You know the script must be horrendous if Hugh Grant is leaving a project because of it. Like him but let’s face it… he’s not exactly super busy these days.

The 54-year-old actor has been keen on reprising his role of Daniel Cleaver ever since a third Bridget Jones film was announced back in 2011. Since then it’s been in pre-production hell with numerous script rewrites. He revealed why he left the film in a recent interview. Read it below.

Has Sam Mendes Found His Femme Fatale For Bond 24?

When it comes to James Bond movie rumors, especially involving Bond Girls, I tend to take them with a grain of salt. For some reason, most of them never come to fruition. When Skyfall was in pre-production Freida Pinto, Olivia Wilde, Rachel Weisz, Margarita Levieva and Alice Eve were just a few names reportedly to have snagged the femme fatale role. Eventually, Bérénice Marlohe and Naomie Harris officially joined the ranks of Bond Girls.

For Bond 24 (working title), Penelope Cruz, Downton Abbey actress Joanne Froggatt, Norwegian actress Synnøve Macody Lund have all been mentioned at some point or another. Even Rihanna’s name has been in the mix. I’m thinking she’ll probably do the theme song and make a brief cameo much like Madonna did in Die Another Day. Find out who’s reportedly snagged a role in Bond 24 which begins filming in December.
