Are U #TeamCara or #TeamSacramento??
Ch-ch-check out Raven and Michelle vs. Whoopi, Rosie, and Nicolle (above)!!!
This is shaping up to be a pretty stellar cast!
That's because we're hearing the Beyoncé herself has been offered the role of Glinda the Good Witch in the NBC adaptation!
While she has yet to accept, we can totally see Bey leading show show alongside Queen Latifah's Wizard and Mary J. Blige's Wicked Witch of the West.
And as if that trio weren't enough to secure ratings, producers are reportedly also considering Uzo Aduba for a role!
Crazy Eyes has been on Broadway before starring in the revival of Godspell, so we're really hoping to see Orange is the New Black meet the Yellow Brick Road!

Well, a romantic relationship between them wasn't entirely out of the realm of possibility! The Parks and Recreation actress almost went to prom with the pop prince!
Turns out the two go waaaaaay back! Robin's dad, Alan Thicke, and Rashida's mom, Peggy Lipton, both acted on shows that aired on the same network, so these celebs actually met when they were pretty young! Rashida remembers:
"I was 12, 13. His dad was on Growing Pains and my mom was on Twin Peaks at the same time, so we met at an ABC party and we flirted and exchanged numbers—landlines obviously."
Soooooooooo, what happened?!
Well, the 39-year-old admitted her lines got a little blurred when it came to inviting the singer to her school dance, saying:
Back in 2013, the 46-year-old and his former flame took a reunion trip to Costa Rica, where Michelle claims her ex punched her in the face, choked her, and threatened to kill her! Woah!
At the time, she walked away with a temporary restraining order, but now she says that's not enough.
She has filed a lawsuit against Terrence for assualt, defamation, and two different types of emotional distress — both negligent and intentional.
Some of the stuff in the legal docs sounds pretty serious, especially the part that mentioned the actor's son, Billy, had to intervene to get his father away from Michelle:
"While Billy tried to pry Defendant's hands from Plaintiff's neck, Defendant whispered to Plaintiff, 'Remember what I told you in Bora Bora? That is what I'm gonna do,' referring to a prior instance where Defendant told Plaintiff that her body would never leave the island. Plaintiff interpreted the reference to mean that Defendant was going to kill her."
What the what?!

Has the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 finally been solved?
On Wednesday, airplane debris resembling a Boeing 777 was found off the coast of Reunion island, a land mass located in the West Indian Ocean. Reunion Island is controlled by France, and members of the French air force are inspecting the wreckage.
Based off initial observations, officials strongly believe the debris belongs to MH370, which disappeared with 239 souls aboard in March 2014. The disappearance drew world wide attention after the aircraft seemingly vanished from earth — extensive searches yielded absolutely no evidence. From terrorism to mechanical failure, conspiracy theories have been rampant.
If the wreckage is indeed a Boeing 777, it's safe to assume this is the missing plane considering there's no other aircraft at that size currently missing.
The Malaysian Minister of Transportation, Liow Tiong Lai, said of the investigation:
"We need to verify. We have wreckage found that needs to be further verified before we can further confirm if it belongs to MH370. So we have dispatched a team to investigate on these issues and we hope that we can identify it as soon as possible."
We hope they reach their conclusion sooner than later! We bet the families of the passengers are desperate to receive answers.
So, do YOU think this is the missing plane?
