Filed under: TV NewsAmerica Ferrera

It's about time she gets back in the TV game!

America Ferrera has just landed a role on the acclaimed CBS drama The Good Wife. Executive producer Robert King announced the good news to sources, explaining that America will play a legal grad student with whom Alan Cummings' character develops a romantic interest in. Robert added:

"We've been watching and loving America for years now on Ugly Betty, and it'll be fantastic to see her take on a completely different role: especially one that puts her across from Alan Cummings."

It's certainly a stretch from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants what we think she is used to, but we think she'll be wonderful all the same.

Thoughts?

No Ugly Betty for Becki Newton! She's just had a beautiful baby boy!

Becki's rep has just confirmed to sources that Becki and her hubby Chris Diamantopoulos welcomed their first child into the world early in November.

Orly? Why are we just hearing about this now, we wonder!

Regardless, both baby and mommy are doing well and that's really all that matters!

Congrats!

OMG! Ugly Betty Actor Stabs Mother With A Sword!

Filed under: TV NewsSad Sad

This is just…horrifying.

A young actor, Michael Brea, who can be seen in Ugly Betty and Step Up 3D, fatally stabbed his own mother early this morning with a Freemason ceremonial sword!

The bizarre and frightening incident happened early this morning in Brooklyn, NY. Neighbors of Michael's mother heard her screaming in horror, while Michael yelled out to religious figures, like Moses and the "architect of the universe." It took police almost 45 minutes to finally get into the apartment, but once they had, they found the poor woman with multiple stab wounds in her bedroom.

Michael was promptly arrested, but then taken to the hospital for psychiatric evaluation. Police are still investigating the situation.

How awful! He's going to have to live with some unspeakable guilt for the rest of his life. So tragic.

UPDATE: OMG! Now sources are claiming that Michael "sliced his mother's head off" with his samurai sword. As in, he actually DECAPITATED her!

We're told police arrived to the "bloody scene" and were forced to taser Michael in order to subdue him.

This is just awful! We can't even imagine the torture this woman had to go through! Heart-breaking!

Queen Latifah Teams Up With VH1

queen latifah teams up with vh1 for new tv series single ladies

Looks like VH1 is teaming up with the Queen!

The network has picked up Queen Latifah's movie and eight episode dramedy Single Ladies.

The show stars Stacey Dash from Clueless, and it's being billed as a "relationship, comedic drama set in the world of Atlanta fashion, music, and celebrity."

Here's more from the press release:

"Single Ladies" is a comedic drama about Val, Keisha, and April - three best friends with different philosophies on sex and relationships. Val (Stacey Dash) is an ambitious aspiring fashion mogul who wants to find a true partner. Keisha (LisaRaye McCoy), on the other hand, is a former video dancer just looking for a rich man to keep her in style. April (Charity Shea,) has supposedly found the perfect man and the perfect marriage - but is learning that marriage isn't necessarily a happy ending. "Single Ladies" is a modern, sexy series set in the world of Atlanta fashion, music, and celebrity that will constantly explore which woman has the right approach to relationships.

The show will be written by The Wanda Sykes Show writer Stacey Littlejohn, and it's being directed by Tamra Davis, of Grey's Anatomy and Ugly Betty fame.

Here's more on the project from VH1's EVP of Original Programming and Production, Jeff Olde:

"This movie and now the series is the perfect way for VH1 to jump into the scripted arena. It taps directly into relationship issues and life questions that we know our audience loves, and it does it via a gorgeous, funny, diverse and talented cast of strong female characters. Their complex lives and loves play out against a super hip Atlanta backdrop which is sure to be a character in the movie. Once we saw an early cut of the movie we knew right away we needed to make this a series."

Here's a statement by Queen Latifah from a press release:

"My partner Shakim and I are excited to collaborate with VH1, as they have a similar vision on how to bring this show to life. I think Single Ladies will really fill a hole in what is needed on television today."

Sounds like this def has potential to become a hit.

Will U tune in for Single Ladies on VH1?
