Duana posted an article yesterday about Jennifer Love Hewitt, the executive producer of The Client List who is insisting on having her real life fiancé and baby father be the baby father of her character on the show, even though, creatively, the showrunner isn’t in support of that storyline. Apparently she’s been demanding that his part be increased for a while now and this time she’s threatening to walk if they don’t give in. Click here to read that article. In her assessment of the situation, Duana noted that while JLH’s decisions may be misguided, her power trip may also be justified. The Client List would not happen without her.
Could the same be said for Charlie Sheen? Sheen got Selma Blair fired off of Anger Management yesterday after finding out that she’d been complaining about his work ethic to producers. Word is, Sheen is always late and the cast and crew have to sit around all day waiting for him to show up and when he does, he often doesn’t know his lines. When Sheen, an executive producer on the show, found out, he too threatened to walk unless Blair was cut. When the network relented, he then texted Blair, calling her a c-nt, and told her not to come back to work.
It’s one thing to indulge a celebrity for needing to keep her boyfriend happy -- and in JLH’s case, that’s not even a done deal yet; Deadline reports that she and producers are at an “impasse” -- but it’s another to indulge one who abuses his colleagues and takes advantage of their time while prioritising his own. Still, it took only 48 hours for Charlie Sheen to get rid of Selma Blair. Being spoiled pays off way more in Hollywood when you’re a man, non?

Not at the same time. Or, I dunno, maybe at the same time. It has been a long, LONG time since Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were photographed together. Put it this way -- Liam’s been photographed with January Jones more recently than he has with his on/off maybe on again fiancée. Full Story
The Emmy Award nominations will be announced on July 18. Jimmy Kimmel Live has submitted two entries for consideration -- his post-Oscar show and the one from January 24, when Matt Damon took over and finally had his revenge. Did you watch it? Click here for a recap that I posted after it aired. Damon was great. And the fact that he was willing? Even better. But, unfortunately -- and kind of hilariously -- for Damon, if Kimmel wins the Emmy based on his performance, he will not be eligible for the Emmy. Something to do with an Academy rule change that happened in 2009.
It is not remotely the most interesting scene from the show -- I’m not sure it’s even the most interesting from the episode in question -- but when I think of Veronica Mars, I often think about the scene in season 2 where Veronica tries to set up Vinnie with a bugged pen, and he sings out the window to her to show her it hasn’t worked.

Let’s be honest. When a story about Jennifer Love Hewitt lands in your inbox, you can pretty much assume it’s going to be a fun treat to roll your eyes, talk about the ridiculousness of a grown woman who still calls herself “Love”, and remember the time she exposed her breasts on Ellen recently.

First reaction seeing these shots of Taylor Lautner on set today in New York: I thought they already made this movie...? It was the one with Lily Collins. Didn’t see it but the trailer showed him on the run all the time and super intense about his identity -- one of the reasons I call him Tom Cruise Jr. Full Story

Sandra Bullock is currently promoting The Heat in Europe. She wore black at the London premiere last week -- click here for a refresher -- and she wore black again at the photo call today in Berlin. This is a good look. I love a well tailored classic shirt and that leather skirt is a good length. Full Story
