Lindsay Lohan brings mayhem to Betty, will guest judge Project Runway

by Kelly Woo, posted Sep 21st 2008 10:06AM
This season of Project Runway lost some star power when Jennifer Lopez pulled out of judging the final runway shows due to a "foot injury" (which apparently didn't hamper her in a triathalon the next weekend).

But the reality show plans to make up for it. Access Hollywood says that Lindsay Lohan will be the guest critic in the premiere of the sixth season, the first with new producers and a new network in Lifetime.

Lohan's already in New York for her guest role on Ugly Betty, and the cast can't believe the "mayhem" she incites everywhere she goes. Ana Ortiz told ABC News Radio, "It really puts it into perspective the bubble that she has to live in ... people yelling at her and cussing at her. It's unbelievable."

Katy Perry plans to make out with a female celeb at the VMAs

katy perryThere's a difference between cheap, tawdry publicity stunts that are (pop) culturally significant and those that are just, well, cheap and tawdry. An example of the former is Madonna's infamous VMA performance from 2003 in which she performed and locked lips with not only Christina Aguilera, but Britney Spears as well. An example of the latter would be basically anything involving Katy Perry.

if you've walked past a TV, into a retail store or gotten into a car this summer, chances are you've heard Katy Perry's single, "I Kissed a Girl." There's an even bigger chance that if you just read that sentence, "I Kissed a Girl" is now going to be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Perry is performing that song during this year's VMA telecast on September 7th, and if you haven't already guessed, she's looking for a girl to kiss.

Ugly Betty meets Regis & Kelly

by Kona Gallagher, posted Aug 5th 2008 9:25AM
regis and kellyOne of the best things about moving your show to New York? New York guest stars. Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa have signed up to play themselves on the September 25th season premiere of Ugly Betty. Conveniently, Ugly Betty's star, America Ferrera, announced the casting news while she was a guest on ... Live With Regis & Kelly.

In addition to the morning duo, other guest stars lined up for the new East Coast version of Betty include Ripa's husband, former All My Children star Mark Consuelos and Long Island native Lindsay Lohan. Lohan is reprising her role as Betty's high school rival for five episodes.

I'm a sucker for shows that are filmed in New York, so I'm super-psyched about this season of Ugly Betty. Now that they've already snagged Regis & Kelly, what other New Yorkers should Ugly Betty try to get as a guest star? Personally, my fingers are crossed for Anderson Cooper. But then again, my fingers are always crossed for Anderson Cooper.

No Emmy nomination for Rebecca Romijn and here's why

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 27th 2008 9:44AM
Rebecca Romijn - UBThe Emmy nominations won't be announced until July 17, but we can tell you right now without a doubt that Ugly Betty's Rebecca Romijn will not be among the outstanding supporting actress in a comedy category at the Emmys. No, we're not psychic. It's just that her spokesman has confirmed that her name was never actually submitted. DOH! And why was that, you wonder. No good reason, said her rep, "It was an oversight."

According to L.A. Times' Tom O'Neil, this isn't really that far-fetched an occurrence. Tim Allen, at the height of his Home Improvement success, missed a chance for an Emmy nomination when somebody fumbled the ball. The next year, his paperwork was hand-delivered, accompanied by the University of Southern California marching band.

Romijn's omission -- on the surface -- looks like a mistake. Yes, it's true that her status on the show is going from series regular to recurring, but I don't believe she purposely kept her name out of the running to in some way act out in protest against the show. It makes no sense? How is she hurting Ugly Betty by not getting an Emmy nomination? No, this was a screw up, nothing more.

Lindsay Lohan bows out of Emmy consideration ... really

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 14th 2008 1:24PM
ugly betty llEither an Emmy isn't worth very much these days, or Hollywood actresses are finding that the publicity from spurning a nomination is worth more than the nomination itself. First Grey's Anatomy star -- and last year's Emmy winner -- Katherine Heigl removed her name from consideration for an Emmy in 2008, and now another has followed suit.

Lindsay Lohan is not submitting her Ugly Betty performance for Emmy consideration. What? You don't remember Lindsay's performance, those few minutes of a flashback when Betty recalls being used as a dodge ball target in high school? Yeah, Lindsay really put in Emmy-worthy work there!

This is so ridiculous when it comes to Lindsay. There was no chance she'd be nominated, so removing her name is a stunt. On the other hand, Heigl's move is a real slap in the face to the writers of Grey's Anatomy.

Super Skank Wednesday: Dina, Denise, Byata, & Rece - VIDEOS

by Kristin Sample, posted Jun 11th 2008 12:38PM
Serch & YoYoWelcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: Miss Rap Supreme, I Love Money, Charm School, New York Goes to Hollywood, and The Surreal Life. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

Notice how I've changed my introduction? I almost added Living Lohan and Denise Richards: It's Complicated but I realized that would compromise my integrity. I did, however, watch both of those shows Sunday night. I'll tell you about them and the finale of Miss Rap Supreme after the jump.

Ugly Betty: Jump (season finale)

Becki Newton, Alec Mapa, and Michael Urie
(S02E18) After all the hype surrounding the Lindsay Lohan appearance, I was expecting more than a brief flashback that explained Betty's hatred of sports. Even the little French kid had more screen time! It would be one thing if Lohan was introduced briefly midseason and continued to make appearances; that would have made sense. Introducing her for thirty seconds before the season's end was a strange choice. I look forward to seeing how they reintroduce Kimberly in the Ugly Betty present, but I wish they had waited until next season's premiere to bring her in.

Ugly Betty will be better in New York says exec producer

by Allison Waldman, posted May 19th 2008 9:22AM
Ugly bettyNow that we know that Ugly Betty is coming back next season (it was never in doubt) and that the Ugly Betty production is moving to New York, executive producer Silvio Horta has shared a few more bits of news and tidbits about Betty and company.

For starters, the producers are determined to streamline the show, taking advantage of being in NYC and sharpening the focus of the show. Horta said the goal for the Ugly Betty writing team for season three is "to make the show more about Betty's journey and to weave the characters into more unified, emotionally grounded plots."

Boston Legal: Roe v. Wade, The Musical

Where ya been, Carl?(S04E12) "What's the tragic part... beside the music?" - Shirley Schmidt

My first reaction to the opening scene this week was one of amazement. First of all, who was it that decided Missy was the character everyone was dying to see again? I disliked the character the first time and, now that she is sans Selleck, I despise her. Furthermore, what person in their right mind is supposed to feel sympathy for a confessed semen thief who is so mentally unbalanced that she borders on dangerous? By the way, it takes a special kind of actor to pull off the racist comments without being completely offensive. Meredith Patterson is not that actor. Nice voice, though.

The Best and Worst of 2007: Rich's list - VIDEO

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 4th 2008 11:05AM

30 Rock is the Best Comedy that Deserved an EmmyHere we are again. Another year has passed us by and what do we have to show for it? A little more gray hair, a little less money in our pockets (have you noticed how the price of, um, everything has gone up?), and a little more fear that the world in slowly unraveling. Normally, television is there to soothe our brows in these times. Alas, the current pissing match between the Studios and the Writers is stifling that ability to the point that we may all be having Chaucer parties by mid-year because there's nothing to watch on the tube.

Not sounding too bitter, am I?

Well, you're not here to read about doom and gloom (unless it's a review of 24). You're here to see what I, and many of my TV Squad colleagues, thought television's best and worst were for 2007. So, without further interruptions on how much I paid for my daughter's karate lessons (you DON'T want to know), here is my list of best and worst for the previous year.

Lindsay Lohan on Ugly Betty? Stranger things have happened

by Richard Keller, posted Nov 7th 2007 2:24PM

Lindsay, meet Betty. Possibly.So, the redemption tour of former teenage star turned uncontrollable addict Lindsay Lohan begins on network television, does it? According to an article in The New York Observer that may certainly be the case. And, I guess there's no better place to get back in the public's good graces then on a high-profile show like Ugly Betty.

According to unidentified sources on the set of Betty, Lohan's people are in serious talks to have her appear in a three-episode arc. She would portray the assistant manager of the fast food restaurant where Betty's father currently works. Our darling Betty would take pity on the hapless manager, who would be a former high school beauty queen who has hit hard times, and get her a job at Mode.

Lindsay Lohan's mom wants her own reality show

by Anna Johns, posted Jun 4th 2007 2:04PM
lohanThe gossip columnists like to portray Lindsay Lohan's mom as being an opportunistic bitch, and she evidently isn't doing anything to dispel that notion. Now that her young daughter is in rehab for Oxycontin abuse, Dina Lohan is reportedly pushing hard for her own reality show on E!

It's called Mom-ager, and it's supposed to be about Dina's efforts to propel her other two children, 14-year old Ali and 11-year old Cody, to stardom just like their older sister. Their older sister is doing a bang-up job with her stardom, by the way, since she is on the cover of People magazine this week with the headline, "What Happened to Lindsay Lohan".

Sounds like a responsible mom. Hopefully even E! doesn't stoop this low. It's okay to watch adults self-destruct because they have a choice in the matter, but giving this woman a camera crew to watch her destroy her children is really, really wrong.

Sex and the City bad influence on Lohan

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 28th 2006 3:46PM

Lindsay LohanYou just can't make this stuff up. (You might have to register first to read the article.)

Lindsay Lohan says that the girls of Sex and the City are to blame for the way she lives her life, that Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall and the others taught her that settling down with one man wasn't the thing to do, that she should play the field and sleep with a bunch of different people.

Also: she drinks a lot because she used to watch Cheers all the time, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous made her crave a big mansion, and CSI made her want to become an expert in forensics.

The most terrifying news I got from the article above is that Lohan has a younger sister, Ali, who is also becoming an actress. Oh, great. I guess the gossip columnists and bloggers will be kept in business for at least another ten years. Parents, lock up your sons.
