Intro for November 27, 2012
In television hierarchy these days, made-for-tv movies might even rank lower than reality television. Which means that some has-been or a never-been doing air kicks on Dancing With The Stars is arguably ranked higher now than Lindsay Lohan. Remember when you stressed at the injustice of having her cast at Elizabeth Taylor? Please. As I wrote at the time, a widely ridiculed Lifetime movie-of-the-week, in the company of Jennifer Love Hewitt and LeAnn Rimes, is exactly where she belongs. Actresses who make movies-of-the-week don’t get invited to make real movies. The point then is that there will be no Liz & Dick recap. We don’t recap made-for-tv movies.
There was no Pitt Porn last night because Angelina Jolie did not join Brad Pitt at the premiere of Killing Them Softly. In her absence though, he promised he would marry her SOON. More on this later but as you’d expect, that’s the major headline now. His movie opens on Friday (and they’re getting MARRIED). They’re getting MARRIED and his movie opens on FRIDAY.
Yours in gossip,
PS…I’m giving away two tickets to my friend Jian Ghomeshi’s NOW talk tonight at Bloor Hot Docs Cinema (506 Bloor St. W.) in Toronto. Doors at 6 p.m., talk begins at 6:30 p.m. NOW Talks is a unique series of interviews with authors, actors, playwrights, musicians and other notables in a relaxed, informal discussion format that lets the interview subjects express their personality, motivations and opinions about the work they do. If you (and a guest) would like to attend, please email before 1pm Eastern today with “Jian NOW” as the title. We’ll draw two (2) winners at 3pm and notify you by email. Each winner will also receive a copy of Jian’s new book 1982. Good luck!
