DWTS Contestants Clash With Guest Judge Abby Lee Miller On A High Scoring Week 8! Watch The Performances And Find Out Who Was Sent Home HERE!

We've hit week 8 this season on Dancing With The Stars which means playtime is officially over, and the contestants are definitely feeling the heat as we had one of the highest scoring nights of the year!

But just because the competitors are bringing their A-game does NOT mean there was any shortage of D-R-A-M-A! This week, Dance Moms' controversial star Abby Lee Miller joined the judges tables, and let's just say she rubbed some of the dancers the wrong way, particularly the Chmerkovskiy brothers!

The night started off with a bang as

Shia LaBeouf's Live Performance Art Piece Includes Whiskey, An Indiana Jones Whip, & His Shame?!! Read The Proposal HERE!!!

shia labeouf performance art piece

Wasn't he supposed to be retiring?

When Shia LaBeouf said his antics were all for performance art, we thought that was where it would end.

We were wrong.

Reportedly, at least FOUR galleries in the El Lay area have received proposals from Shia for a live performance art piece and it's a definitely pretty weird.

Actually, it's really, REALLY weird.

The proposal begins:

Leonardo DiCaprio Enjoys The Finer Things In Life At The Art Basel Show In Miami Beach!

Filed under: Leonardo DiCaprio

Leo could easily submit himself to any exhibit, as he is a priceless work of art! SRSLY we'd bid on him in an open auction, but we'd probably lose to all the models who want his seksi bod!

Leonardo DiCaprio attended the Art Basel show in Miami Beach, a yearly event that drew 50,000 visitors last year! But this patron of the arts is one in a million!

The exhibition has galleries of modern and contemporary art, which just confirms that Leo is as classy a man as we think he is!

We hope the Great Gatsby himself had a great day! Who knows? Maybe he bought some pieces of art while he was perusing!

In any case, we like Leo like we like our paintings…well hung and up against a wall!

Leah Remini Roars Back At Scientology On DWTS! Watch HERE!

When Leah Remini decided to leave Scientology, she found out the hard way just how nasty breakups can get!

And although she never named her former church on DWTS, it was pretty clear who inspired her performance this week!

Leah and her partner Tony Dovolani did a contemporary dance in which the actress played a puppet who broke free from her puppeteer, and as if the idea wasn't already perfect enough, they did their routine to Katy Perry's huge hit, Roar!

The judges praised Leah for her amazing concept, however they criticized her footwork a bit and the duo earned the low score of the evening with a 22!

These two have been doing pretty well lately aside from this one tiny bump in the road, and we're sure they'll come Roar-ing back next week!

Ch-ch-check out Leah's awesome performance (above)!

Will Smith To Remake Annie - With Daughter Willow In The Title Role!

will-smith-to-remake-annie-with-willow-smith-in-the-title-role

It took us a second to adjust to the idea, but the more and more we think about it….this MAY have some potential.

Will Smith is reported to be looking to produce a remake of the classic musical Annie - with his daughter Willow in the title role!

The actor, and his company Overbrook Entertainment, are developing the project with Sony, and have even reached out to Jay-Z, and have asked him to create original music for the flick, which is thought at this point to be a contemporary adaptation.

However, there's no word yet on whether or not it will feature any of the musical's original songs.

Wow!

Definitely a ballsy move to tamper with such a well-known, and much-loved classic, but we think that updating the story to modern times and focusing on the recession - maybe as a mirror to The Great Depression - with an updated sound could actually work! And work WELL!

We just hope that little Willow has the acting chops to carry such a huge story! People are not going to be happy if this flops!

What do U think?? Do U want to see an updated Annie??

Swank's Working On A Clothing Line

hilary-swank-working-on-her-own-sporty-clothing-line.jpg

First a TV show and now this.

Designers Management Agency co-founder Marc Beckman announced on Thursday that Hilary Swank is coming out with her own clothing line.

Why not? Everyone else is/has.

Beckman says Hilary originally wanted to do a motivational and inspirational t-shirt collection, but it quickly developed into a "contemporary, outdoor, athleisure brand".

Now that the concept is nailed down, DMA and Swank are interviewing designers to do all the work make her vision come to life.

Merlin Movie On Its Way!

Filed under: Film FlickersHarry Potter

merlin movie in the works

With the Harry Potter series coming to a close, we take comfort knowing that wizards will return to the big screen!

Working Title is currently developing a Merlin film, based on a pitch by screenwriter/author Jay Basu, which will bring the legendary wizard into a contemporary setting.

Innerestingly enough, this film will NOT be the first time that Merlin has been placed in a modern setting.

There was a short-lived sitcom in 1981, Mr. Merlin, in which the wizard worked as an auto mechanic in San Francisco.

Sounds like a pretty strange show to us!

We'll be curious to see how they put Merlin into a contemporary setting, but we don't think we'd be too excited to watch him using his magic to fix up old cars.

What do U think about the idea of a contemporary Merlin movie?
