Blake Lively's father, Ernie Lively, was hospitalized Monday with back and lung injuries after his car tumbled over an embankment on an L.A. road. The Gossip Girl star and her family rushed to his side following the accident.
After ongoing negotiation, DreamWorks and Universal have signed their seven-year distribution deal, which effectively settles Paramount's divorce from Steven Spielberg and Stacey Snider and lets the producing pair begin a new endeavor without sacrificing the capital to do it — or burning any industry bridges.
The two DreamWorks honchos recently stepped away from their Paramount relationship to partner with India's Reliance Big Entertainment, which will distribute the company's films on its home turf and has financed the new joint venture.
A few notable details of the deal seem to be win-win for all studios involved, and keep Paramount in the loop.
Janet Jackson fans are going to have to wait one more night to rock with her in concert. The pop star has canceled her scheduled Monday performance at the Turning Stone Resort in New York.
Jackson's cancelation comes after a string of postponements along her Rock Witchu tour in the past two weeks, due to an unspecified ailment. She was hospitalized at the end of September before her concert in Montreal.
Tour promoters promise that postponed dates will be rescheduled.
Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas is will soon be whetting our TV appetites weekly with his new comedy, Party Down.
The program, to be produced for Starz Media, will focus on six Hollywood wannabeens who work together at a catering company. With dreams of living the dream starting to fade, the group will serve up the laughs at their catering events — to include everything from Sweet 16s to video porn awards afterparties — in each half-hour episode.
Contrary to her chart-topping song's lyrics, taking your money isn't the only thing that M.I.A. wants to do — being a mom might trump it.
The Sri Lankan artist confirmed to Pitchfork Saturday that she is, in her words, "creating a baby" with fiancé Ben Brewer. Pregnancy, though, isn't her only recent good news: M.I.A.'s single, "Paper Planes" is currently rocking pop radio rotations and sales charts.
Kristen Bell, Heroes
Kristen Bell may have appeared on just one episode of Heroes so far this season — but it wasn't the last we'll be seeing of Elle Bishop — nor the last of her confrontations with Sylar.
In her significant, single appearance, Elle managed to take down the show's big baddie. "I felt really good!," Bell said of her character's bold move. She spoke with TVGuide.com at Hollywood Life Magazine's 5th annual Hollywood Style Awards, where she was presenting her own stylist, Nicole Chavez, with an award.
Yet, the actress is even more excited about the intrigue and revelations to come.
Now that the new 90210 has found success (thus, that full-season pickup), will Melrose Place be next?
The good news? Series creator Darren Star says it's a possibility he'd be interested in pursuing, acknowledging that it's been up for discussion on the development side. "Regardless of whether they do it or not, whether I'm part of it or not, I think it would be a fun thing to do," he told TVGuide.com. "I wouldn't be surprised if it happened -- If it can be put together in the right way," he added.
Plus, the new 90210's success — and the requisite fandom surrounding it — is not lost Star. "I love it," he said of the redux. "I mean, it’s incredible to see a show that I was a part of, that many people were a part of for so many years, come back, and that the audience still has an affection for the show."
The bad news? Find out, after the jump!
Lacey Schwimmer and Lance Bass
So far this season, Lance Bass and Lacey Schwimmer are getting their Dancing groove on with solid scores and some "untraditional" moves that are earning them kudos and a little ire. But as Season 7 is beset by a string of injuries — from Jeff Ross' cornea scratch to Misty-May Treanor's tendon-pop — they're not taking any chances.
"The stage is cursed, we all believe it now," Lacey Schwimmer told TVGuide.com at the Respect Awards on Friday.
