You can be forgiven for rolling your eyes upon hearing that Encore — a movie channel best known as “the one that isn’t HBO, or Showtime, or Starz, or Cinemax” — is trying to get into the original programming game with a miniseries called Titanic: Blood and Steel. The 12-hour program premieres at 8 p.m.Monday and will air for two hours each night through Saturday, when it concludes with the legendary ship setting sail on its maiden voyage. (Everyone knows nothing interesting happens after that point.)
But though Titanic: Blood and Steel‘s very existence may seem unnecessary — especially so soon after Julian Fellowes’ ill-fated Titanic miniseries — the series itself doesn’t really invite a predictable, unflattering comparison to James Cameron’s canonical take on the Unsinkable Ship. Instead, Blood and Steel reminded me more of the drama that made Fellowes famous: Downton Abbey.
Gleeks, time to get your giddy on. After we were treated to both photo and video teases for Cassandra July — Rachel’s acid-tongued NYADA dance instructor played by Kate Hudson — it was only a matter of time before Kurt’s Midwestern mentor came on the scene. Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to introduce you to Isabelle, Kurt’s (seemingly much friendlier) guide to all things jazz hands, played by Sarah Jessica Parker. Glee honcho Ryan Murphy tweeted this pic of Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt, cuddling up to Parker on set. Snap judgment: If the two stars can get this close between takes, that would imply that Kurt and Isabelle’s burgeoning student/teacher relationship probably won’t end in an out-for-blood diva-off. Then again, this is Glee. Frenemies make the best competitors.
This pics brings with it a good news/bad news situation, though. While we now know that Isabelle shares Kurt’s penchant for tartan (hello, kilt at prom!), we have to wait a while to see the bottom half of her — and Kurt’s — outfit. Glee premieres on Sept. 13, but Parker won’t make her first appearance until episode 3.

A very wealthy buyer is about to discover that there’s an oven stuffed with Manolos inside his new home. The New York Observer writes that the townhouse at 64 Perry Street — a facade known to viewers everywhere as Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment building — has sold for $9.85 million. Though Carrie herself lived on the Upper East Side, the house is in Manhattan’s West Village; in fact, it’s just two blocks away from the Bleecker Street outpost of Magnolia Bakery, a shop that was made famous by a season 3 episode of Sex and the City.
The buyer’s identity is a closely guarded secret, as is the seller’s. This makes sense, since even eight years after the show’s finale, SATC tours include a stop at 64 Perry Street. But constantly having to wave fans away from your stoop may be a small price to pay for an abode that features five bedrooms, herringbone wood floors, and six fireplaces. Six! That’s how many seasons Sex and the City aired. That’s bananas.
Sex and the City‘s series finale aired eight long years ago. But for better or for worse, HBO’s former flagship remains pop culture’s default point of reference for any entertainment aimed at women. Write a movie or TV show about ladies interacting, and it’ll inevitably get compared to SATC. Make your main characters single female urbanites, and the comparisons get even easier. And if your show is a sexually explicit, half-hour comedy featuring four young, white, female New Yorkers that happens to air on HBO? Well, in that case, you’re just asking for it.
HBO’s Girls hasn’t shied away from acknowledging its glitzy predecessor. Creator/writer/director/star/key grip Lena Dunham has said that her program couldn’t exist without Carrie and co. In last week’s premiere, a character named Shoshanna also took the liberty of revealing which SATC character she thinks she most resembles. (By even bringing this up, Shoshanna proves that she’s a Charlotte.) And last night, Girls boldly went where SATC had gone before by centering its second episode around a main character’s theoretical abortion. The episode proved that while Dunham’s series is, in some ways, indebted to Sex, it’s also an entirely different animal. READ FULL STORY »
After hearing that 18-year-old AnnaSophia Robb would play the title character in The CW’s The Carrie Diaries, we couldn’t help but wonder: Does this bright-eyed former child star have what it takes to fill Carrie Bradshaw’s famous Manolos?
Though we won’t know for sure unless The Carrie Diaries — a Sex and the City prequel based on Candace Bushnell’s eponymous book — gets picked up for fall, this new photo proves that Robb at least looks the part. Her character has Carrie’s trademark dirty blond waves, as well as her flamboyant fashion sense.
Check out the first official photo of Robb from the pilot’s set below. READ FULL STORY »
Cynthia Nixon, the actress formerly known as “the Sex and the City character none of your friends wanted to be when you were assigning yourselves Sex and the City characters at brunch,” caused quite a stir when she told The New York Times that her homosexuality was “a choice” earlier this month. Nixon, who has been in a gay relationship since 2004, offended many members of the LGBT community with her remarks, which were taken as a suggestion that being gay is not genetic.
“I understand that for many people it’s not, but for me it’s a choice, and you don’t get to define my gayness for me,” she said in the Times. “It seems we’re just ceding this point to bigots who are demanding it, and I don’t think that they should define the terms of the debate. I also feel like people think I was walking around in a cloud and didn’t realize I was gay, which I find really offensive.” READ FULL STORY »
When you think of a teenage Sarah Jessica Parker, images of Square Pegs and the original Footloose immediately come to mind But, now that The Carrie Diaries, the prequel to Sex and the City, is officially in the works, we’ll have to try and re-think how we see young SJP.
As EW reported earlier today, HBO is currently shopping around (so Carrie of them) to find a home for the small screen adaptation of Candace Bushnell’s best-seller that follows Miss Bradshaw through her senior year of high school, a time long before Manolo and Mr. Big came into the picture.
While the series could end up over at The CW, with Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (Gossip Girl) as potential producers, the bigger looming question mark is: Who would play the iconic Carrie? READ FULL STORY »
John Corbett, you sly dog, you. Not only have you managed to get moms throughout the U.S. to name their sons Aidan after your beloved Sex and the City character and kept one of Hollywood’s most intriguing romances (re: you and Bo Derek) well out of the public eye, but you’d also pulled off the greatest stunt of all: looking really, super ridiculously good-looking for your age.
Seriously, is the guy taking a page from the George Clooney Getting-More-Handsome-As-He-Ages Book of Wizardry? When did the philosophical guy from Northern Exposure turn 50?! Also, can Northern Exposure come back? READ FULL STORY »
