Lisa Wu out—Cynthia and Phaedra in! EW has exclusively learned that Bravo will officially add two new housewives to the cast for its third season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, which is set to premiere on Oct. 4 at 9 p.m. ET. The network will make the announcement this afternoon. As you can see from the first-look cast photo above, NFL wife Lisa Wu Hartwell went the way that DeShawn Snow did after season one—she’s no longer a full-fleged cast member. However, sources tell us that Hartwell will indeed make occasional appearances on the show, much like Dina Manzo did after she departed The Real Housewives of New Jersey earlier this season. Atlanta‘s season three cast is, from left to right: Phaedra Parks, NeNe Leakes, Shereé Whitfield, Cynthia Bailey, Kim Zolciak, and Kandi Burruss. Pretty glam cast, eh? As for new adds Cynthia and Phaedra, here’s what you need to know:

On IFC’s cooking-talk show-concert hybrid series Dinner With the Band (new season premiering tonight, 10:30 p.m.), New York chef Sam Mason invites indie musicians to his kitchen for a meal and music. To kick things off this season, Rufus Wainwright stops by to help prepare a German-influenced menu including schnitzel, spaetzle and sauerkraut. We chatted with Sam about the show, his musical tastes, and why music and food go so well together.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How did the show come about?
SAM MASON: The producers called me. They called me six years ago. Darin called me, [said], “I have an idea for a cooking show you might be interested in,” so I said OK. We met up and he told me this grand story about this cooking show that involves live music and indie rock bands. He Google searched tattooed chefs. Six years ago, apparently I was the only tattooed chef. I’m not a big fan of [the story].
Are you a big music fan?
I am really into music. I’m a little all over the place with my preferences. It kind of worked out really well. It was a good marriage. READ FULL STORY
How many of you Gleeks have imagined yourself singing opposite Glee‘s Lea Michele or Cory Monteith or Matthew Morrison? Well, that Gleeky dream could soon become a reality. EW has the exclusive news that Glee producers are beginning a nationwide casting call today for performers between the ages of 16 and 26 to be featured in season two of Fox’s hit series. Beginning today, those interested can go to this MySpace page and upload audition videos through April 26. The videos should explain why you want to be on Glee and feature a performance of one of Glee‘s hit tracks, like “True Colors,” “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” and “Lean on Me.” Performances can either be a cappella or with a single instrument via My Space karaoke. Videos should be only five minutes in length (one-minute intro, four-minute performance) and are limited to one per person.
Excited yet? Here’s Mr. Schuester himself, Matthew Morrison, to explain more in the video embedded after the jump… READ FULL STORY

The tale of Beauty and the Beast is, as we all know, a tale as old as time. (My personal favorite interpretation is the late-1980s TV series in which Linda Hamilton and the leonine “beast” fought over who would have the bigger hair.) Now, the story will be transposed to the younger set in Beastly which, as you can see in these two exclusive photos, stars the inimitable Neil Patrick Harris and High School Musical’s Vanessa Hudgens. The press release calls the film “an edgy teen romance about learning how to see past false surfaces to discover true inner beauty.” I’m all for anything with high NPH levels, and it’s a bonus to see that they made the movie’s heartthrob-turned-beast a creepily vascular alopeciac instead of just sticking a pair of glasses on him. (I’m looking at you She’s All That.)
