Access Hollywood and TVGuide.com are reporting that there has already been a recast in the new “Grey’s” spinoff “Private Practice.” Merrin Dungey, who played Addison’s best friend Naomi, has been recast with Audra McDonald.
So did anyone watch the complete train wreck that was “Hey Paula” on Bravo this week? It was absolutely PAINFUL to watch. I really like Paula, but damn girl! She seemed to present her loopy behavior as her being silly and ditsy, oh and being an insomniac. Maybe the each and every human body reacts to sleep deprivation differently, but as someone who suffers from stress as well as insomnia, I do NOT act falling down drunk!
Through almost both shows (they showed 2 half hour episodes back to back) it was so obvious something was going on with Paula, and I’m not talkin insomnia. When she wasn’t acting whacked out, she was just a complete diva. She was angry that her assistants didn’t have comfy sweat pants and her white tennis shoes for her to wear on the plane, then forced them to dig through her luggage to find them. Mind you she had 15 minutes to make her plane at this point because she got lost and couldn’t find her limo, so she wandered around downtown LA looking for it! At one point she actually said “Why can’t people treat me like the prize I am.”
If you can’t tell from my glowing review, I will so be watching this train wreck again next week If you missed it, catch it on re-runs. If you are legal, you may wish to choose to drink along with Paula in order to make it through the show.
Dang this show is getting so good and it ends next week. Not fair! As one commenter pointed out, the commercials are advertising it as the series finale, so it’s looking like a 2nd season probably isn’t in the cards.
I’m trying to actually remember exactly what happened last night (it wasn’t a good day for me yesterday). Nikki learned Cliff had been bopping Eddie’s mom. Cliff tried to break it off with Eddie’s mom, but she won’t let her boy-toy go. The show ended with him being caught in bed with her by his own mom! Ew!
Cliff’s mom tried to hook up with Greta’s dad, but it seems he has eyes for Eddie’s mom too! We learned that Greta’s dad was there when Eddie died and made it look like a suicide. We still don’t know who killed him.
Johnny confronted Greta about the costume, she claims she found Eddie after he died and Cliff promised to get rid of the costume. Why did he keep it though? Blackmail? Cliff knows a lot more than what he’s saying, my guess is he knew about Greta’s dad’s involvement and kept the dress to use against him somehow. Maybe I can’t frame Greta type of a thing?
Johnny meanwhile found out that Liza and Eddie were sleeping around! Liza has been lying about everything basically, at this point it wouldn’t shock me if Liza killed Eddie!
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that in spite of ABC passing on “Football Wives,” the network basically still has the actors on contract indicating it may not be so dead in the water after all. Other rumors are that NBC and Fox is interested in the show should ABC officially give it up.

Victoria Beckham, better known as “Posh Spice” (above left) will guest star on an episode of “Ugly Betty” next season according to many media outlets. Nothing is known, but one can guess it will have something to do with “Mode” magazine and possibly a photo shoot?
Note I did not call her a former Spice Girl. That’s right Spice Girl fans, the group announced a world tour today and all five original members are back!

The second episode of “Hidden Palms” from last week was a bit of a let down! The episode focused mainly on daddy issues, Greta’s with her off-hands out-of-town father and Johnny with his step-dad. Johnny and his dad played in the local golf tournament. Johnny’s step-dad fancies himself a golf pro, Johnny doesn’t. Things didn’t go well between them at all. Meanwhile Greta’s dad came to town and paid more attention to Cliff’s mom Tess than his own daughter. When Greta and her dad faced off, we did learn an important factoid. Greta’s dad recalled her coming home crying the night Eddie died and he “made it go away.” Seems like Greta got herself into trouble!
Cliff and Nikki’s romance continued, but then we learned there was something going on between him and Eddie’s mom! He went to see her as the episode ended. Hmmm. I don’t think Cliff killed Eddie, but I think he knows what happened. Meanwhile Liza broke into Cliff’s and revealed what she found to Johnny, Greta’s Halloween costume covered in Eddie’s blood!
So obviously Greta at least FOUND Eddie. Otherwise she was there when he died. I don’t think she was though, I think she stumbled on him. Who killed Eddie though? It’s looking like Cliff knows the truth but isn’t saying. Could he have been in on the plot to kill his best friend? My guess is Eddie was accidentaly killed and Cliff and his mother covered it up. Did Eddie catch them having an affair?
Joan Collins apparently really wants to return to television. She missed out on the role of Teri Hatcher’s mother on “Desperate Housewives” and now is reportedly “begging” for a role, claiming she’ll even have a little nip’n'tuck if needed.
Joan will shortly begin a stint on season 5 of “Footballers Wive$” on BBC America where she’ll face off with Tanya’s character, who has eyes for her young son.
Personally, I’d love to see Joan on “Desperate Housewives.” I loved last season when they brought in Dixie Carter as Orson’s mother. Perhaps Joan could be Victor’s mother?
So I finally got through the last week’s “Footballers Wive$.” Here are some quick thoughts.
In this episode Liberty remains jealous that Ursula is flirting with every man and woman she comes across. I still think she’s going to con her and Tremaine out of their money. Otherwise she is up to something. She’s a user. Meanwhile Lucy returned this week. She was, shall we say, sizing Tremain up for a suit. There were some definite hints there that something could happen between these two.
Love me some Shannan yeah! Shannan is fixated on a new guy Callum. Wasn’t she just fixated on Darius? Dang, slow down girl! Callum is a mama’s boy though, and his mom is clearly keeping him on a short leash. She faked a diabetic attack when he stayed out with Shannan all night. Witch! I think she wants his money.
Roger and Jackie went to the new team owner’s house for a party. Roger got sloshed, and apparently naked as Jackie found him putting his clothes back on. Maybe he was swimming in his skivvies and I missed it? Jackie wanted to go, as the new owner had just exposed himself to her! Looks like the owner is a bit of a swinger, yeah baby.
Finally, Bruno was demoted from team captain thanks to Amber’s terrorizing of him, and they gave the job to Tremain. He just got their and they’ve made him captain already? Dang! Meanwhile it was Lucy who finally figured out that Amber has been the one trying to drive Bruno mad. They broke into her meditation chamber and found her shrine to Conrad. It looks like the crazy is busted, but so is Bruno.
So in the latest episode, Johny learned that Eddie’s mom still lived in the area. He went to see her, trying to find out what Eddie’s screen name on IM was and who could be messaging him. She didn’t seem to keen on talking with him though, and later told Johnny’s mom. Johnny’s mom was convinced he was interested in finding out why Eddie killed himself because he couldn’t find out why his dad did. He admitted possibly, but he did want to know what happened to Eddie. That question opened up a whole can of worms, they HAVEN’T addressed the father’s death really. Should the show go to Season 2, that would be a possibility.
Cliff launched his plan to get Travis out of his mom’s life, and it involved Travis’ “baby” (aka his car.). Cliff to Nikki for a ride in the car and then smashed it up, claiming they were side swiped. Nikki and Cliff got really hot and heavy with one another. Dare I say I love them together, but it’s hard to like them when we know what a jerk Cliff is! Later Cliff’s plan worked, Travis attacked him and his mom kicked Travis to the curb.
Nikki meanwhile realized she needed and wanted help, and got it from Jesse Joe, who offered her a couch to sleep on . . . with rules. I just love the actor who plays Jessie Joe!
Greta finally confessed to Johnny that Eddie killed himself because she cheated on him with Cliff. Well that was HER story. Liza, Eddie’s friend, had another story. Johnny spent a good deal of time talking to Liza, who was hiding photos of herself and Eddie from him. One popped up ion her laptop screen saver and she rushed to keep him from seeing it. Eventually Johnny saw a reflection of her sweatshirt in the mirror behind her, and it was the IMer’s screen name! He demanded answers. Her story? Eddie was her friend and she had been IMing Johnny to warn him, Eddie was murdered by Greta and Cliff.
So the mystery thickened! I still have the 5th episode to get through. I can’t believe the show is coming to an end. It’s been so good! I’d love to see the CW pick it up for another season, but I don’t think it’s looking good.

So I just saw a really quick “teaser” on Sci Fi for the new “Flash Gordon” series coming in August. They really didn’t show anything but the title on a red sky with “Coming in August.” However what made me so happy was the fact that they have the Queen song in the promo! I’m hoping this means it will also be used as the intro song for the show itself. I am unsure though whether it’s the original Queen recording or a cover.
Just for nostalgia’s sake, and those of you old enough to remember, I’m throwing the old Queen video in.
