Now, I love Octavia Spencer and she’s an excellent actress, but this just screams “hot mess”.
What ever happened to new ideas?
And Angela Lansbury is only 88 and doing 8 shows a week on Broadway as recently as the last year or so, so I’m not sure she is ready to give this role up. She may have been planning some specials or movies or something over the next few years….
Turns out, you can’t kill “Murder, She Wrote.”
NBC is reviving the onetime Universal TV series that aired for years on CBS, placing Octavia Spencer in the starring role once held by Angela Lansbury and giving the project a put pilot committment.
David Janollari and Alexandra Cunningham (“Desperate Housewives”) will exec produce the drama, which will aim for a light, contemporary feel, according to NBC. Spencer will play the hospital administrator and amateur sleuth who self-publishes her first mystery novel, then becomes an active participant in true crime investigations.
Jim Nabors, the Hawaii resident well known for his starring role in the 1960s television sitcom “Gomer Pyle, USMC,” married his longtime male partner early this month, he told Hawaii News Now Tuesday.
Nabors, 82, said he married his companion of 38 years, Stan Cadwallader, who’s 64, in Seattle on Jan. 15.
Nabors declined an on-camera interview but spoke to Hawaii News Now by phone.
“I’m 82 and he’s in his 60s and so we’ve been together for 38 years and I’m not ashamed of people knowing, it’s just that it was such a personal thing, I didn’t tell anybody,” Nabors said. “I’m very happy that I’ve had a partner of 38 years and I feel very blessed. And, what can I tell you, I’m just very happy.”
Nabors said he and Cadwallader traveled to Washington state, where gay marriages became legal in early December 2012. They were married at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle.
A judge performed the marriage ceremony in the privacy of their hotel room with a couple of friends who live down the street from them near Diamond Head as witnesses, Nabors said.
Before they were married, Nabors said, “It’s pretty obvious that we had no rights as a couple, yet when you’ve been together 38 years, I think something’s got to happen there, you’ve got to solidify something. And at my age, it’s probably the best thing to do.”
I really try to pretend I don’t know about Honey Boo Boo as her whole show/concept really scares me….
Funny….I would assume Honey Boo Boo and the GOP drew from the same Red State demographics, but she’s the clear winner….
It’s sad when more people want to see Honey Boo Boo Child than the Republicans’ convention. Sad for the GOP….
Of course, she seems much more real than Mittens…
And maybe the working class folks are finally catching on to the GOP lies and tuning them out for something else….
Honey Boo Boo has become more relevant than the Republican Presidential Nominee….
From ABC News:
Mitt Romney and company couldn’t beat the allure of a self-proclaimed “redneck” family. According to Nielsen overnight ratings, TLC’s controversial reality show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” drew 2.9 million viewers Wednesday night at 10 p.m. In second place: Fox News’ coverage of the Republican National Convention, to which 1.2 million adults tuned in.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Honey Boo Boo” scored more viewers in the key 18- to 49-year-old demographic than the RNC coverage on any one of the individual broadcast networks.
She is the most uptight, white woman who ever lived…
And, god knows, that is saying a lot…..
This woman had big problems. She made some big mistakes. But Nancy, aka, God, judged her in the Court of Public Opinion and cause Her judgement to be rendered…
I’m sorry, but someone needs to remind Nancy her name is Nancy and not Jehovah…..
The best thing CNN could do to start to regain respect would be to dump this crazy uptight woman…but then, I’m sure she does bring in some cash…
Judge not, least ye be judged…..
From the Examiner:
The 29-year-old mother was drunk when she rolled over on her 3-week-old baby. The incident had her facing charges and looking at facing judicial consequences. However friends say the mother became distraught after Nancy Grace, the HLN talk show host mentioned on her show that she was the “Vodka Mom” and questioned why the mother wasn’t being charged with first degree murder. Using a vodka bottle as a prop and carrying on, Grace brought pressure to the case of maximum proportions.
I loved watching this show when I was a child and Robbie was my favorite…
I’m not going to analyze it any deeper than that….
From The Huffington Post:
Don Grady, who was one of television’s most beloved big brothers as Robbie Douglas on the long-running 1960s hit “My Three Sons,” died Wednesday. He was 68.
His “My Three Sons” co-star Barry Livingston, who played youngest brother Ernie, confirmed Grady’s death to The Associated Press. Livingston said Grady had been suffering from cancer and receiving hospice care at his home in Thousand Oaks, Calif. But the exact cause and place of death were not immediately clear.
“It’s the oldest cliche in the world when TV brothers start referring to each other like biological brothers, but he was the oldest, and somebody I looked up to and learned from a great deal about life,” Livingston said.
I wish he would finally accept the fact that he is just an Entertainer and just go with it like Sarah Palin did….
We’ve already been subjected to the endless GOP Debates. Those certainly weren’t meant to be serious politics, were they?
If nothing else, the GOP Primary Candidates should provide fodder for reality TV- and Saturday Night Live- for years….
From the Political Insider:
A spokeswoman for Herman Cain confirmed this morning that the former GOP presidential candidate was approached by ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” to appear on this season’s competition
But Cain nixed the idea. “He can’t dance in an eight-count. He can only dance in a nine-count,” said Lisa Reichert, Cain’s executive assistant.
Nine-count. Get it? 9-9-9.
“Dancing with the Stars” has learned the advantages of mixing the quick-step with politics. Its 2010 season featured Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin, and former U.S. House majority leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas.
But wait, there’s more. USA Today reports that show producers were also eyeing Michele Bachmann.
