We know times are tough and people are pinching pennies all over the world, but we didn't realize it had come to this!!

The Royal Family is apparently so hard-pressed for cash these days that they're sending out their youngest generation to — GASP! — get jobs like common folk!!!

Okay, maybe that's not quite the case, but the much beloved Princess Beatrice, the 25-year-old granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, has apparently taken on an internship with Sony Pictures Television!

Before accepting this position at Sony TV's London offices, the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson had previously worked in finance, but there's no business like show business!

Philip Seymour Hoffman Looks VERY Healthy In First Public Appearance Since Rehab!

Filed under: DrugsRehabPhilip Seymour Hoffman

philip seymour hoffman looks healthy at envision awards and first public appearance since rehab

Now THERE'S the Philip Seymour Hoffman we know and love!

A couple of weeks ago, it was reported that The Master actor had checked himself into a detox facility, after he fell off the wagon and had started doing heroin again.

Philip was released after 10 days of treatment, and apparently got straight back to work, and we finally got our first good look at him since the incident, as he made an appearance at the Envision Awards in New York!

The actor looked like his old, scruffy self as he took the stage and gave a speech about his time working alongside Sony Pictures co-founders Michael Barker and Tom Bernard, who were both being honored!

We're so glad to see Philip looking healthy again, and hopefully with the support of his family and friends he can stay clean for many more years to come!

Roger Ebert Memorial At The Chicago Theater: A Touching Memorial For A Legendary Critic

roger ebert memorial held at chicago theater john and joan cusack in attendance

The entertainment industry is still mourning the death of legendary film critic Roger Ebert after he lost his life to cancer last Thursday.

In addition to his public funeral earlier this week, the Captivate Marketing Group held their own memorial service at the Chicago Theater in the late critic's hometown yesterday.

The service, which was titled Roger Ebert: A Celebration of Life featured a slew of filmmakers and directors, such as Andrew Davis and Julie Dash, as well as acting siblings Joan and John Cusack, who wanted to pay their respects.

Sony Pictures Classics co-president Michael Barker said of the visionary film critic:

"Roger Ebert is probably the most influential film critic in the world. He was a poet of the people."

The Hollywood Reporter's film critic Todd McCarthy added:

"He was a populist without prejudice. … You always felt the real guy behind the words."

There were three screens set up at the theater to play the opening sequence of the film Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, which was written by Roger himself.

The night ended on the heartwarming image of his wife, Chaz Ebert, thanking each individual member of the Soul Children of Chicago, who performed As and Lift Him Up earlier in the evening.

It's hard to put into words the huge impact the iconic critic has put in the film industry, so we'll just give this memorial and all of the love he's receiving two thumbs up. You are and will forever will be deeply missed, Roger.

Kristen Stewart Starring In Rupert Sanders' Next Film, The Juliet?

rupert-sanders-film-the-juliet-alfred-bester-snow-white-kristen-stewart-scandal

In his dreams, maybe!

Or perhaps in Liberty Ross's nightmares!

Rupert Sanders officially has his next directorial project and, while we never advocate gambling, we wouldn't bet money on Kristen Stewart finding her way to his casting couch love-seat again anytime soon!

The film, entitled The Juliet, is based on a short-story from acclaimed science-fiction author Alfred Bester.

Juliet, eh?? We hope Rupert doesn't play Romeo on set this time around!

Queen Latifah & Lifetime's Steel Magnolias Legal Drama!

Oh dear!

It seems that Lifetime's re-imagining of Herbert Ross' 1989 emotional classic Steel Magnolias is getting some legal backlash from the original's executive producer, Victoria White!

White is claiming that Sony Pictures, Lifetime Entertainment and A&E Television Networks did NOT contact her about her rights to the property, and is suing over breach of contract, good faith and fair dealing.

White wants injunctive relief before the October 7th premiere of the made-for-tv version, which stars the venerated Queen Latifah as M'Lynn.

We hope this nasty legal mess doesn't postpone Steel Magnolias' Lifetime debut! While we adore the original, we can't wait to see this whole new take on a beloved classic!

And obviously, anything starring The Queen is an instant delight!

Little House On The Prairie Moving To The Big Screen?!

little-house-on-the-praire-film.jpg

Well hey y'all!

It seems that the 1970's television series Little House on the Prairie starring Dancing With The Stars contestant Melissa Gilbert as adorable Laura Ingalls, may be coming to a big screen near you!

OK well, not the series per say, but a film based on the semi-autobiographical books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, which follow the day to day lives of the Ingalls family in the 19th century American West!

Sony Pictures is considering making the beloved children's classics into a feature project written by Abi Morgan (Iron Lady), directed by David Gordon Green (The Sitter), which may include plot points from all 9 books in the series.

Sounds like some high falutin' fun to us!
