[CDAN] For years this Academy Award winner/nominee actress has supported her basically unemployed husband. She has found him work, got him meetings, and given him tons of money. How does he repay her? He gets a little success and then starts cheating on his wife with someone half her age.
[BlindGossip] We’re sure that these five women will each offer up a creative excuse for not returning to their respective shows next season. “I’ve decided to devote more time to my family/ my charity work/ my other professional projects/my navel lint collection/ whatever.” But the truth is that they are all getting fired.
Woman 1 is a reality show cast member. She’s getting fired because she’s brunette and nasty and nobody likes her anymore. At least she has her husband’s money to fall back on.
Woman 2 is another reality show cast member. She’s getting fired because she’s brunette and boring and nobody has ever liked her. She’ll be fine, though, because she actually has a job to which she can return.
Woman 3 is a TV personality. She shouldn’t be too shocked, given the demonstrable lack of » Continued
Which big star is ready to put her red-hot career on the back burner so she can concentrate on motherhood? The new mom is using her Hollywood clout in the hopes that her not-so-busy fiance lands some lucrative movie deals.
BlindGossip – The other cast members have finally gotten wind of the direction that the show’s leadership may be going, and it’s not pretty. They are threatening a full-scale revolt. Not only do they not want this replacement as their boss, they don’t want her as part of the cast at all. So the rest of the cast is teaming up to force her out. Now that all the cards are on the table, it will be interesting to see if there are any obvious shifts in the cast dynamic that we, the viewers, will be able to detect. The crew may even be planning some split screens so that we can view every angle of every upcoming battle.

BlindGossip – The head of this television show is looking for someone to take over their role within the next couple of years. Ironically, their top choice is a female cast member who receives a lot of criticism from the other talent.

EW – If a certain television star is reading this, they should squint extra hard to read between the lines. How come? They’ve been canned – they just don’t know it yet! Yep, it seems an original cast member of a hit series that’s popular has been pink-slipped from their job without the benefit of being given a pink slip. A combo platter of budget cuts and creative redirection is being blamed for the firing, but it also bears mentioning that said performer was never going to win any popularity contests with their co-stars. As for why the MVP still hasn’t been told that the unemployment line is reserving a spot for them, well, that’s where things get really interesting. There’s still a snowball’s chance in Hollywood that the producers might have a change of heart. If, or when, the axe does fall, the regular’s on-screen alter ego isn’t likely to be killed off. Although death has cast a shadow over many a plot, this personality’s demise would probably be deemed too morbid, even for this show.
