The three-day Bonnaroo NE Music Festival featuring Bob Dylan, the Dead and Tom Petty slated to take place Aug. 8-10 in Riverhead, N.Y. has been canceled due to permit problems. Concert promoters say refunds will be issued to all ticket holders. I'm told this comes on the heels of last weekend's Field Day fiasco, but I really know nothing about that because I was away on vacation.
Rob Campos is now an unemployed loser. The star of NBC's For Love or Money whose sexual misconduct during his tenure as a marine came to light earlier this week has been fired by the Texas law firm where he'd been employed for 18 months, TheSmokingGun.com reports. On his firm's web page, owner Sanjay Mathur said Campos's checkered military past as well as "his conduct during the second episode of the TV show," has lead Mathur to "disassociate our relationship with Mr. Campos." NBC, which claims it was unaware of Campos's sketchy past when they cast him, has decided to continue airing the show.
Farrah Fawcett and Melissa Gilbert have signed on to star in CBS's TV movie adaptation of Jackie Collins's best-selling novel Hollywood Wives: The New Generation, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The first chapter of the Wives saga aired as an ABC miniseries in 1985 and starred Candice Bergen.
Keen Eddie star Mark Valley, 38, can relate to his character's culture shock as an NYPD cop living in London. However, unlike Det. Eddie Arlette, this easy-going Pasadena and Days of Our Lives alum's future doesn't hinge on his job across the pond. Here, Valley talks to TV Guide Online about headlining his very own TV series, those lovely British birds and his real passion...
TV Guide Online: "Fish-out-of-water" is a term often used to describe your character. When you were shooting Eddie in London, did you feel the same way?
Mark Valley: Yeah, I did, sort of. I can't figure out these English women. They're strikingly good looking, and they're much cheaper dates. They'll go out and have a beer with you.
TVGO: Were there cultural differences that
Madonna, Britney Spears, and Nelly are among the entertainers signed up to roast Carson Daly at the first ever MTV Bash, a comedy/concert taping June 28 and airing July 13. I'll watch under one condition: if Tara Reid gets a turn at the mike.
Sexpot starlet Eva Mendez has a confession to make: Her risqué role as lady cop Monica Fuentes in 2 Fast 2 Furious was even spicier than you know!
"There was a sex scene between Monica and Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker), which I asked to be taken out," Mendez reveals. "It was on the houseboat. My character was already emotionally and physically involved with Carter Verone (Cole Hauser). Monica and Brian didn't really have time to establish something, so I thought it was not proper to have a sex scene."
Prudish as that may sound, director John Singleton agreed, since he was concerned
Okay, so she was no match for American Idol's Ruben and Clay. But junior soul diva Kimberley Locke got our groove on and proved disco ain't dead with her frisky takes on tunes like "It's Raining Men," "Emotion" and "Band Of Gold." Here, TV Guide Online talks to the 25-year-old Tennessean about everything, including girl power, Luther Vandross and her biggest pet peeve.
TV Guide Online: So you didn't win AI, but you did outlast the other ladies.
Locke: I am very proud of my position. To make it into the top three, out of thousands of people, is a great accomplishment. And then, to be the last girl standing, there is that, too.
TVGO: What do fans say to you most often?
Locke: I do get a lot of young girls saying to me, "You really don't know what
Is Ruben Studdard already shunning his roots? The American Idol champ says he's ditching his trademark 205 jerseys effective immediately. (The 205 referred to the area code from his hometown of Birmingham.) Studdard told The Birmingham News that "a combination of things" led him to decide not to wear the shirts made by 205 Flava Inc. "I will always represent the area 205," he said, "but 205 Flava is not indicative of what I am about." Translation: Steven Cojocaru finally got through to him.
Titanic star Kate Winslet married filmmaker Sam Mendes (American Beauty) late last month in a small Caribbean ceremony. How small, you ask? The only folks in attendance were Winslet's 2-year-old daughter Mia and three close friends. That's hardly enough people to form a decent conga line.
