Give us this week our dose of ridiculous. Forgive these sad little people, dear internet lords, for they know not how ridiculous they are. This week's installment brings us HBO apologizing for George W. Bush (and not how you might think), Adam Sandler continuing to make fools of us all, and a new show on Lifetime -- the latter of which sounds pretty ridiculous before you even know what it is.
Philanthropic stars often write big checks to charities -- but in a new reality series called 'Celebrity Sellouts,' they'll sell off their own possessions to help good causes instead.
The Lifetime series is the brainchild of former 'N Sync member Lance Bass, who's working along with production company DiGaVision -- created by former MTV programming gurus Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley -- to bring it to fruition.
Actress/singer-songwriter, Jewel has taken to Twitter to show off a few pics of herself as June Carter Cash, sans snaggletooth. The 38-year-old Alaskan is currently shooting the Lifetime biopic, 'The June Carter Cash Story,' which shines a light on the life of country and rock legend, Johnny Cash's wife and longtime collaborator.
It's a little strange to consider that the only reason most of us are paying attention to Lifetime's upcoming original movie 'Liz & Dick' is to see Lindsay Lohan's supposed "comeback" role, after years spent as a media disaster. Assuming any of us even watch the film, prompt shrugs and universal utterances of "Eh, alright then" are sure to follow. So, who's ready for a first look?
There's plenty of overlap in the TV world, some that impedes upon the development of new shows, some that only contributes to it. So where networks might pass on a show like 'SNL' star Will Forte's 'Rebounding' because it seems too tonally similar to NBC's already picked-up 'Go On,' others like CBS move forward with modern Sherlock Holmes adaptation 'Elementary,' in spite of its comparison to 'Sherlock.'
With NBC hard at work on its upcoming Thomas Harris series 'Hannibal,' does that mean Lifetime's looking for a piece of the pie?
Misleading titles aside, it seems like the exhaustive search for the man who dares to co-star alongside the acting might of Lindsay Lohan has finally ended. Scouring every corner of Hollywood, Lifetime has finally settled on the man to play Richard Burton to Lohan's Elizabeth Taylor in the original TV movie 'Liz & Dick.' So, you wonder, who's the lucky man? Surely it couldn't be Wilmer Valderrama, right?
We should make it clear that we have in no capacity watched any episodes of Jennifer Love Hewitt's original Lifetime series 'The Client List,' nor the TV movie that preceded it, but in an age where the Internet is King, the endless stream of cleavage-filled GIFs provide all the evidence we'll ever need to support J. Love getting renewed for a second season.
No no, go ahead. Re-read that headline as many times as it takes for the information to sink in. We certainly had to take a little time with it. But once you've managed to wrap your head around the notion, and taken enough time to recover from the whiplash of going from Jennifer Love Hewitt's cleavage to Betty White, juicy 'The Client List' scoop awaits you.
