Perez Is Coming To Television! With Lady GaGa! And Katy Perry! And More!


As reported by The Advocate:

"Perez Hilton’s “Best Year Ever” Leads to New TV Show"

Being nice is paying off for Perez Hilton, who will cap what he describes as his best year yet with the launch of a new TV series in which he will interview Lady Gaga, Enrique Iglesias, Kelly Rowland, and Katy Perry.

By Jeremy Kinser

Being nice is paying off for Perez Hilton, who will cap what he describes as his best year yet with the launch of a new TV series in which he will interview Lady Gaga, Enrique Iglesias, Kelly Rowland, and Katy Perry.

The unscripted hour-long program, titled Perez Hilton Super Fan, has been picked up for four episodes by U.K.’s ITV2 and will premiere next month. The series will find the self-proclaimed “Queen of All Media” getting exclusive access to celebrities, who happen to have enormous followings within the LGBT community.

Hilton sees the program as a culmination of last year’s announcement of his intent to change his behavior for the better, both online and off. “I was really concerned that everything would fall apart for me professionally when I decided to be a much more positive Perez on my website and publicly,” Hilton tells The Advocate. “But thankfully that hasn’t been the case!”

Hilton says the program has already been picked up in other territories besides the U.K. and producers are currently finding a home for it in the U.S. “Each episode is a super fun hour with me and a global superstar, all of whom happen to be gay favorites,” Hilton says. “The first season we Katy Perry, Kelly Rowland, Enrique Iglesias and we kick things off with the biggest star on the planet, one of my best friends, Lady GaGa. I have exclusive access and show you each celeb in a way only I can and you won’t want to miss it. It’s very special!”

Following a rash of antigay-bullying suicides last year, Hilton appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October 2010 and pledged to try to make a positive difference. He published his first children’s book, The Boy With Pink Hair, in September and in March Hilton used his annual celebrity-studded birthday party to raise money for the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network (GLSEN).

Cheryl Cole Being Courted To Judge UK Version Of The Voice!


Looks like Cheryl Cole might land on her feet after all!

Even though the pop star was humiliated by being fired from the judging panel of both the US and UK versions of The X Factor, it appears that she's being courted from another reality competition - the upcoming British version of the insanely popular The Voice!

And according to reports, both ITV and BBC are in a serious bidding war over its rights!

A source explains:

'The hype around The Voice is now so great that ITV feels it has no choice but to be in the running for it. If the BBC got it - and managed to sign Cheryl - then it could snare loads of viewers away from The X Factor.'

Oh man! We're seriously hoping it works out!

And wouldn't it just be BRUTAL if The Voice ended up killing X Factor in the ratings?!

We certainly imagine Chezza would be pleased!

Despite Simon Cowell's public explanation and apology on her behalf, sources close to her say she's less than interested in patching up their friendship, and reveals:

"If Simon thinks he can claim it was a business arrangement that went wrong, he is insane. She wasn't uncomfortable on the show. She was enjoying herself. No-one complained at the time. Simon admits he got his top producer Richard Holloway to tell her she was off the US show - that's because he was afraid to do it himself. Cheryl trusted him implicitly and she doesn't do that with many people. He made a mockery of their friendship so now it's dead in the water."

Can't say we blame her, after everything she went through!

Karma certainly has a funny way of working things out, and we have a feeling that if The Voice catches on over there even a quarter of the way it did here, then the next season of The X Factor might be in a little trouble!

We'll be very curious to see how this develops!

What do U think?? Should Chezza judge for The Voice??

More Details On Titanic Mini-Series! Helen Mirren Considering Role!

Filed under: TV NewsHelen Mirren


Wow! Maybe they really are trying to give James Cameron a run for his money!

It was announced yesterday that writer Julian Fellowes was working on a four-hour mini-series based on the 1912 sinking of the Titanic - to air on ABC, the UK's ITV, Canada's Global TV, and Australia's Channel 7, amongst many others - and now, it appears that Helen Mirren and Atonement's Romola Garai are circling roles in the project!

Although no information has been revealed about their potential characters, the drama is being described as a "heart-wrenching journey" and will include "multi-arc action, mystery, and romantic plotlines."

Filming is to begin this spring, with the premiere next year, as to mark the 100-year anniversary of the luxury liner's sinking.

Wowza. We have to admit, if it's done correctly, this could be a truly touching tribute to all those who lost their lives that devastating night.

What do U think?? Is a Titanic mini-series a good idea??

All Aboard! New Titanic Mini-Series Coming To ABC!

Filed under: TV NewsFilm Flickers


Wow! It takes a lot of balls to try to tackle this topic, especially after what James Cameron managed to produce!

Academy Award winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes has reportedly written a four-hour TV mini-series based on the sinking of the RMS Titanic.

Set to air on ABC, Global TV, and ITV, Titanic will focus on the lives of different characters in various social standing as they attempt to survive the iconic ship's sinking on that fateful day in 1912.

Quinn Taylor, SVP movies miniseries and acquisitions for ABC Network, says:

"The Titanic retained a powerful hold on people around the world for almost 100 years, and this new miniseries will offer a compelling take on this epic, tragic story. We look forward to bringing this remarkable series to our viewers."

Agreed! It really is such an unbelievable and heartbreaking event in our history, and we're sure that Fellowes' take will be a fascinating one.

However, we do have to wonder if people will be disappointed with the results, when compared to James Cameron's Titanic and the amount of money, construction, and special effects the director put into re-building the ship and its actual likeness - not to mention the disaster scenes at the end!

We doubt that a mini-series will have that kind of production value!

But who knows??

What do U think?? Will U tune into the Titanic mini-series??

X Factor Dramz Continues! Eliminated Wagner Carrilho Offered As Much As £1 Million For Tell-All!

wagner carrilho offered lots of money to tell all about x factor

Uh oh, X Factor! Looks like your gagging may not have been as effective as you hoped!

Eliminated X Factor contestant Wagner Carrilho has reportedly been offered as much as £1 million to write a tell-all about what goes on behind the scenes at the ITV show.

Here's what a publisher had to say about the demand for Wagner's story:

"There is a lot of interest in exactly what Wagner would say. Especially as he’s been effectively gagged from talking about the show this week."

Looks like that gagging SERIOUSLY backfired! Here's more:

“What does he know that’s making people so nervous? He lived and breathed that show for months. He’s bound to know a lot about the other contestants."

And more:

“And he spent a lot of time with people like Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell, so who knows what else he could reveal?”

We are SO curious to hear more! We'll be very excited when he signs a deal with one of these publishers!

Why do U think X Factor is so fearful of Wagner Carrilho? What do U think he's going to say?
