Thanks to Eva Longoria Parker, we have our first unofficial cast photo for Desperate Housewives’ Season 7. Longoria posted the impromptu photo-op on her Twitter account. Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, Longoria and new cast member, Vanessa Williams took a break from filming to pose for the above photo.
Looks like Williams is fitting quite nicely with the ladies of Wisteria Lane. I guess making the transition to the mean streets of Fairview from the cutthroat world of Mode Magazine should be an ease. Williams plays the character of Renee Perry, an old college friend and rival of Lynette. Normally a new character at the beginning of each season is the main focal point of the season-long mystery, but not in Vanessa’s case. She will have a secret but NOT the main story for the season.
WOW, that didn’t last for very long. A month ago, former child star Amanda Bynes made headlines for announcing her early retirement. She tweeted she was retiring from acting because it was no longer fun. I guess during her month-long hiatus, the 24-year-old former actress rediscovered the fun again.
In another tweet a few days ago, Bynes called off her self-imposed retirement with the simple “I’ve unretired”. Seven minutes later, she followed that with yet another tweet promoting her upcoming movie, Easy A. Even though she announced her intent to return to acting, she hasn’t scored a new role nor currently filming a movie. Was her “retirement” part of some grand mastermind plan to promote her film all along?
Amanda Bynes co-stars with Emma Stone in the upcoming teen-flick revolving around, what else… sex and gossip. The film is scheduled to hit theaters September 17, 2010.
Don’t get too excited yet. Yes, Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port are reuniting with their former “The Hills” frenemies, but only for “The After Show“. Boo. You never know though… that could all change. Hills fans have been waiting for months and wondering if Conrad would step in front of the MTV reality cameras one more time. A rep for the show confirmed to MTV News that LC and Whit would be making an appearance on the live show after the series finale.
Hills producer and creator Adam DiVello first broke the news on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show Tuesday. He confirmed the duo plus the entire cast will be on hand to bid adieu to the show.
“It will be a big party,” he added. “We have some stories being paid off in the finale that I think the viewers will find pretty exciting. Everybody’s coming at peace with the stories we’ve been following. I think a few of them definitely found happiness and found what they were looking for.”
“It will be an exciting ending,” DiVello promised. “We definitely have a couple of surprises up our sleeve that the cast don’t even know about!”
Lady Gaga and President Obama aren’t often spoken in the same breath, but the two are in a tight virtual race for supremacy- Facebook supremacy that is. They’re the top two competitors in a popularity contest to see who will be the first living person to reach 10 million fans on Facebook.
Early on Friday, Obama had a comfortable 30K lead over the “Fame Monster” but by mid afternoon Gaga’s fans allowed her to surge past Obama. At this pace, we probably won’t have to wait to long to crown a winner. Projections have it that one of the two will reach the milestone before the weekend is over.
“Don’t F*cking Tell Me What To Do“! Well, actually she does. Robyn premiered her new web video for that track. It’s the first 3D video entirely written in code with content being fed by fans via Twitter. The video is a unique experience with every view as it re- generates with each loading of the URL. The first portion of the video features visualization of Robyn’s lyrics in 3D.
The rest of the video is created by users themselves who tweet in what is killing them using the Twitter hash tag, #killingme. These tweets are themselves visualized and credited to the user. The video has the potential to become the infinite video as users can continue to add on to the endless stream of #killingme comments. How awesome is that?
Huh? Amanda Bynes is…retiring? Well, that’s what she says. She’s apparently not enjoying the craft anymore and so she’s gonna move onto something else.
On June 19th, around 3:00am, Bynes tweeted the following:
“Being an actress isn’t as fun as it may seem.”
And making it official, she stated:
“If I don’t love something anymore, I stop doing it. I don’t love acting anymore, so I’ve stopped doing it. I know 24 is a young age to retire, but you heard it here first.”
Supposedly, her last film (which comes out September 17th( is going to be a high school comedy called “Easy A,” where she stars with Emma Stone (House Bunny) and Penn Badgley (Gossip Girl).
What did celebrities do before Twitter to announce news? Oh that’s right… hire an expensive publicist. Even though the single, “If I Had You“, is still weeks from being officially released (thanks to the longevity of “Whataya Want From Me”), Adam Lambert couldn’t suppress his excitement. Lambert used the popular microblogging service to unveil the cover art for his latest single from his successful debut album, “For Your Entertainment“.
Glambert looks like a modern-day Elvis Presley with a splash of Michael Jackson on his latest artwork. Its fitting considering he was on American Idol a few weeks ago, mentoring the contestants during “Elvis Presley” week. Perhaps his stint on the show inspired this latest cover photographed by Lee Cherry.
Yeesh – a lot of tragic things happening in Vancouver these past few weeks. Most recently, the guy who played Boner (Richard ‘Boner’ Stabone” in Growing Pains, Andrew Koenig has gone missing here in Vancouver, and his family and friends are extremely worried about him. They have stated that he’s been very depressed. He was staying at the home of Vancouver burlesque star Jenny Magenta. She had updated her Twitter to say the following:
“One friend in suicide mode another friend gone missing left notes to his parents after he stayed with me and left on Sunday.”
He was supposed to back in the US on February 16th and now, a week later, he’s nowhere to be found. I hope he’s okay.
Coincidentally, his name also came up during the last Olympics in Beijing when he was protesting China’s Human Rights Violations. The Vancouver’s Police Department has set up a tip line at 604.717.2534. His last activity reported on his cell phone and bank account was February 16th when he was reportedly in Stanley Park.
Check out the video of him being arrested at the Beijing Olympics.
