New Reality Show Follows Young Women Thinking About Becoming Nuns

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Don Bayley/iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Reality meets spirituality in a reality show that debuts Tuesday night about a group of young women thinking about becoming nuns.

The new Lifetime show The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns follows five young women leaving life as they know it behind as they consider taking the sacred vows and becoming nuns. The young women are in what’s called the “discernment phase,” where they live alongside nuns to figure out whether they’re ready to put their faith above everything else.

“Women don’t enter with halos. They don’t come in holy,” one nun said in a preview of the show. “God called them from where they are, and they all come from different backgrounds. It will be very difficult.”

“Difficult” meaning no boyfriends, no cellphones and no makeup, which the young women visibly struggle with on the show.

“Religious life can be difficult, especially if you’re running away from something,” the nun said. “We do have certain expectations of dress, that it certainly be modest, and that includes your makeup.”

One young woman in the preview cries over this realization, saying, “But we can’t have any makeup? I never even talk about my acne to anyone. It’s something that’s so personal. You don’t understand when you look at yourself, and you’re so scared that people aren’t going to see you.”

Another young woman confides in a nun that she feels “broken.”

The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns premieres Tuesday night at 10 p.m ET/PT on Lifetime.

Movie Review: “Horrible Bosses 2″ (Rated R)

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Photo Credit: John P. Johnson/© 2014 WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT INC.(NEW YORK) — There are three Oscar winners in the cast of Horrible Bosses 2: Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey, and Christoph Waltz. There’s also Chris Pine, the current face of the billion-dollar Star Trek sci-fi franchise, and Jennifer Aniston, hot off last year’s comedy hit, We’re the Millers. I haven’t even mentioned the three stars — Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day — all of whom bring their impressive bona fides to the table. 

It takes every bit of this star power to overcome Horrible Bosses 2’s many shortcomings.

After the surprising success of 2011’s Horrible Bosses, Nick (Bateman), Kurt (Sudeikis) and Dale (Day) are now taking their destinies into their own hands by becoming entrepreneurs. They’ve invented something called a Shower Buddy, a shower head that dispenses not only water, but also soap and shampoo.

We’re reintroduced to the fellas when they go on a local TV morning show to discuss the product in hopes of attracting an investor. It’s the strongest, funniest sequence in the whole movie — which is unfortunate, given that the majority of the film is yet to come.

Despite an embarrassing visual during a demo of how the shower head works, and the inexplicably racist name of their company, they attract an investor, a multi-billion-dollar company run by Bert Hanson (Waltz), who tells the guys he’ll distribute their product if they get loan, open a factory and produce half-a-million Shower Buddies. But once they do, Bert reneges on the deal, leaving the guys in a very deep hole.

Nick, Kurt and Dale hatch a plan to get their money back by kidnapping Bert’s obnoxious, cocky son, Rex, played by Chris Pine.  However, our heroes find every way possible to screw up their plan, to the point Rex actually forces them to kidnap him. It sounds funnier than it actually is.

If you’re easily offended, you have no business seeing Horrible Bosses 2 because you will find some of it nauseatingly offensive. If, however, you believe nothing is sacred when it comes to comedy, then Horrible Bosses 2 will provide you a few laugh-out-loud moments, but not enough of them to justify the price of theater admission. Wait until you can stream it at home.

Two-and-a-half out of five stars.

Meryl Streep Honored with Medal of Freedom at White House Ceremony

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

ABC/Randy Holmes(WASHINGTON) — President Obama on Monday honored Meryl Streep and 18 other individuals with the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Medal of Freedom.

At the White House ceremony, Obama spoke very highly of the three-time Oscar winner.

“I love Meryl Streep,” the president proudly declared. “I love her. Her husband knows I love her. Michelle knows I love her. There’s nothing either of them can do about it.”

Referring to Streep’s role in the film Mamma Mia!, Obama joked, “She’s done it all for her craft. She’s sung ABBA, which, you know, that’s something.”

Obama continued reviewing Streep’s prolific career: “She learned violin. She wore a nun’s habit, faced down a charging lion, mastered every accent under the sun. She inhabits her characters so fully and compassionately.”

The honorees also included actress Marlo Thomas, singer Stevie Wonder, newsman Tom Brokaw and composer Stephen Sondheim.

“Real Housewives” Star Lisa Vanderpump Says It May Be Time to Leave Show If Violence Continues

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Michael Larsen/Bravo(NEW YORK) — Fans of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills were shocked when they saw star Lisa Vanderpump get slapped across the face by an unknown woman in the show’s trailer. The former Dancing with the Stars contestant tells ABC News Radio that the culprit was in fact her co-star and former friend, Brandi Glanville — and it may signal that it’s time for Lisa to move on.

“She was the main catalyst of last year’s…situation and I just thought I just don’t want to be around this person anymore. But I really tried hard in this season to kind of make it work and then you see what transpires,” Vanderpump says. “But it wasn’t a good situation. Nobody’s ever kind of put their hands on me before.”

It’s clear that after last season’s fall out between the two former friends, they have yet to patch things up. 

Still, Vanderpump says she understands why situations can sometimes get physical on reality TV.

“When they film you for months, you know, sometimes things do happen, especially when you’re in intense situations. I think the only prerequisite on reality television is that they ask you to be honest,” she explains. “But certainly, yes, I get concerned about anything getting physical because that’s not who I am or who I want to be or want to be around.”

“I don’t like the aggression. I don’t like the nastiness,” Vanderpump continues. “It’s not something I ever want to be a part of and if I am then I think it’s time for me to leave the show.” 

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. Eastern time on Bravo.

Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch Join “True Detective”

Monday, November 24th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

George Pimentel/WireImage(NEW YORK) — The cast of True Detective season two is coming together.

HBO announced on Monday that Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Kelly Reilly have signed on to work alongside Colin Farrell, who is set to play a compromised police officer, and Vince Vaughn.

The network announced that Kitsch will play Paul Woodrugh, a veteran and California Highway Patrol motorcycle officer. Woodrugh is “running from a difficult past and the sudden glare of a scandal that never happened,” the network added in a press release.

McAdams’ character, Ani Bezzerides, is an officer for the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department “whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves.”

Reilly will play a D-list actress and the wife of Vince Vaughn’s character, Frank Semyon.

Semyon is “a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.”

Kitsch, who previously had been rumored to be a part of the series, told AdWeek last month that he was “really excited” to get started.

“I’ve just been prepping. It’s been almost a full year since I’ve been on camera, so I’m itching, man,” he said. “I’m overdue.”

Ryan Reynolds on Expecting First Child: ‘I’m Good with Diapers and Diarrhea’

Monday, November 24th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Mark Sagliocco/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) — Ryan Reynolds and his wife Blake Lively are expecting their first child, and Reynolds says he’s more than prepared for this new chapter in his life.

“I don’t have a weak stomach,” Reynolds told People magazine. “I’m good with diapers and diarrhea and all that kind of stuff because I have lots of nieces and nephews, so I’ve done it all before.”

Reynolds revealed what he’s most looking forward to about the new addition. “I’m just excited about having a buddy,” he said, adding, “We don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl yet, but whatever it is, you have this tether to reality that never goes away.”

The actor also said he’s not concerned about messing up as a first-time father.

“For a lot of new dads, you tend to dwell on the mistakes you don’t want to make,” he said. “I’m at that stage still where I’m focused primarily on being open and understanding and leaving a lot of room for error.”

There’s no word on when Lively and Reynolds, who wed in 2012, are expecting their bundle of joy.

AMAs 2014: Top 5 Moments From the Show

Monday, November 24th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Image Group LA/ABC(LOS ANGELES) — Host Pitbull said it best before the 2014 American Music Awards when he told fans, “Get ready to celebrate!”

Sunday night’s AMAs promised to be more than just a night of handing out honors, but more of an entertainment spectacle with more than 15 performances by the likes of Taylor Swift, Lorde, 5 Seconds of Summer, and it certainly didn’t disappoint.

If you missed the show live from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, we’ve got you covered with the top five moments of the night. Here they are:

1. Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’ Debut & Dick Clark Award

Swift kicked off the show in one of the most original performances in award show history. Swift’s TV debut of “Blank Space” featured zombie-like dancers and her having an interesting, yet romantic dinner inside a picture frame, hovering above the main stage. Then, Swift brought the drama, wearing a short, stunning black and nude dress, taking out her aggression on a handsome dancer. The performance ended with a collage of picture frames and Swift’s iconic voice. A smirk on Swift’s face at the end gave away the fact that the “1989″ singer knew she nailed it.

Swift wasn’t done though. Later in the night, the legendary Diana Ross took the stage to present Swift with the first Dick Clark Award of Excellence.

“Tonight we are all honored to present this to a young woman who has taken the music industry by storm,” Ross said.

2. Iggy Azalea Wins Her ‘First Ever’ Award for Best Hip-Hop Album

When Jamie Foxx announced that Iggy Azalea had won the award for Best Hip-Hop album for her breakout hit “The New Classic,” you figured the “Fancy” singer must have won a slew of awards over the past year. In fact, Iggy came up on stage and revealed “This award is the first award I’ve ever won in my whole life.”

She later won for Favorite Hip-Hop Artist and closed the show with a jaw-dropping performance alongside Jennifer Lopez.
