Katherine Heigl Better Get Her State of Affairs In Order; She's Officially Headed Back To TV!

katherine heigl new nbc tv show

She's returning to TV, y'all!!

After leaving Seattle Grace back in 2010, Katherine Heigl is headed back to the small screen with the drama State of Affairs. NBC has officially picked it up and it's full speed ahead!

So what exactly is Kat getting herself into???

The show follows Miz Heigl as CIA attaché Charleston Whitney Tucker, who counsels the president on high-stakes occurrences around the world.

The cast includes Alfre Woodard, Adam Kaufman, Sheila Vand, Cliff Chamberlain, Tommy Savas and Leslie Odom, Jr.—which is super exciting! Almost like Scandal (except not! nothing is like Scandal and nothing ever will be!)

We've heard that Katherine is a tough cookie to work with, so hopefully her on set attitude has changed since her days on Grey's Anatomy!

We wish this cast all the best and cannot wait to see the show!

Armani Mislabels African American Female As African American Male On Instagram, Prompting MORE Racism Accusations!!

Armani makes HUGE mistake on Instagram, prompting instant backlash!!

This is super awkward for SO many reasons!

Armani was called out a few months ago by Naomi Campbell and Iman for showing racism on the runway, and while that seems to have improved since then, they just made a HUGE social media error that has people angry all over again!

On Monday, someone in charge of the fashion label’s Instagram account posted a seemingly innocent picture of Alfre Woodard wearing a Giorgio Armani dress.

However, the caption mis-labeled the African American female actress as an African American male actor Idris Elba…whaaaaa???

This is what the caption said:

“Idris Elba posing in a gorgeous Giorgio @armani dress at the 5th Annual Governors Awards.”

While this may have been a simple human error, it couldn’t have come at worse timing.

The racial profiling incident at Barneys is currently being dealt with by none other than Jay Z himself, and Naomi’s Diversity Coalition is still fighting for more diversity throughout the fashion world.

The inciting image on Armani’s Instagram account has already been deleted, but not after a plethora of angry followers took a screen capture of the post.

Yikes!!

See the image above, and see a close up of the caption (with readers' comments) below:

Brad Pitt Stands For Good While Michael Fassbender Is Pure Evil In 12 Years A Slave Trailer!

An all-star cast is turning out some of the best performances we've seen all year in the new trailer for the upcoming film 12 Years A Slave!

This movie is a POWERFUL retelling of the true story of Solomon Northup and stars Chiwetel Ejiofor as a man whose freedom is taken from him in the pre-Civil War United States.

The film also reunites Michael Fassbender with his Shame director Steve McQueen! This time, Fassbender is playing the part of pure evil as the man who enslaves Solomon.

Brad Pitt appears in the trailer as Fassbender's challenger and Solomon's champion. Rounding out the cast is Alfre Woodard, Paul Dano, Paul Giamatti, Michael K. Williams, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sarah Paulson, Quvenzhané Wallis, and Lupita Nyong'o!

Wow. Talk about talent!

Is Julianne Moore Still Outstanding At The 2013 SAG Awards? You Betcha!

Congratz to Julianne Moore for her SAG Award for Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A TV Movie Or Miniseries!

Not exactly a Game Change here! This is her fifth award for the chameleonic performance!

Steel Magnolia's Remake: We Wanna Know Whyyy!?

Oh, tears spring to our eyes at the mere THOUGHT of Robert Harling's heart-wrenching love-filled drama that is Steel Magnolias!

And while we adore the new cast that make up the forthcoming Lifetime remake of the 1989 film, we must ask WHY remake such a classic, sentimental production?

But, originality is a dying art and we understand that twerks on original works can be just as powerful, if not more so, than their initial inspirations!

Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above) for Tony nominee Kenny Leon's version of Steel Magnolias starring Queen Latifah, Jill Scott, Phylicia Rashad, Alfre Woodard, and Adepero Oduye.

Obvi we will be glued to out televisions with an armament of kleenex on hand, whenever Lifetime decides to air this epic tale!
