‘Heathers’ Series Creator Promises ‘Major’ Changes to Cult Classic, Teases Shannen Doherty Cameo
Paramount Network’s “Heathers” is technically an adaptation of the 1988 cult comedy starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, but series creator Jason Micallef said the show will still find ways to put a new spin on the story. “It’s 2018, it’s not 1988,” Micallef told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour on Monday. “No one’s going to want to watch a girl for 10 episodes follow a guy around, murder people and then whine about it.” So Micallef said he created some “very, very major character changes” for the lead character Veronica Sawyer, played by Ryder in the original movie...

Five Ways “The Good Girls” is Just like “Thelma and Louise”

There’s a lot of Thelma & Louise feeling to Good Girls, which will be coming out on NBC this February, and the cast really has no problem with it. Christina Hendricks, Mae Whitman, and Ruby Hill are coming together as three women and mothers that are fed up with how their lives are going and are backed into a corner when it comes to feeling powerless and unable to change their circumstances.

Bachelor Winter Games First Promo Arrives Promising Tears

I’ll agree that the Bachelor Winter Games will likely promise tears, but more likely they’ll be tears of frustration as to why, oh why, this show is even being considered to be worth airing. As we all know by now, or at least those that read and watch do, The Bachelor is going downhill quickly without taking time to pump the brakes at all. The Bachelorette is going the same way gradually, so is this the way they’re going to try and bring more interest to the show? Or is this just a last gasp effort to get in a

Blumhouse TV and Hulu Announce New 12 Episode Horror Anthology

As of October 2018 Blumhouse TV and Hulu will be showcasing a 12-episode horror anthology that is a big step from their normal one episode a week routine. The anthology will be releasing one episode a month instead, which could be a hard thing for people to get used to but would make each episode an event unto itself and hopefully generate buzz between each episode. So far there’s no idea as to what the stories will be about or who will be tapped to write the stories, but it’s expected to be something very innovative as far as Hulu

Kyle Richards on How the ‘Real Housewives’ ‘Opened the Door’ for ‘American Woman’

Kyle Richards on How the ‘Real Housewives’ ‘Opened the Door’ for ‘American Woman’
As a reality show personality, Kyle Richards is no stranger to inviting the public into stories from her life and family. “I feel like on the ‘Housewives,’ my family stuff was really out there,” she says. “When my sister was on the show, that was an automatic opening to things you may not really want out there.”

But her new show, “American Woman,” is a 1970s-set dramedy that she developed based on the life of her mother, Kathleen Richards — a single mom raising three girls in Los Angeles at a time when Richards says “outspoken or strong” women were not popular.

While Richards admits that mining her personal life in public has often been anxiety-producing, she has found a sense of freedom in taking control of the narrative for the scripted series.

“The Housewives has helped me find my voice. I was always a people-pleaser, and coming into a show like this you end up losing that,” she

Five Things You Didn’t Know about Maria Kang

One of the most controversial figures in the fitness scene is undoubtedly Maria Kang. The infamous blogger first came into the public light when she released an ad in 2013 for her No Excuse Mom movement. It featured her in a bikini, alongside her three kids, emblazoned with “What’s Your Excuse?” Many people saw the ad as quite offensive, perhaps even fat-shaming other mothers for not being in perfect shape like Kang. And she was far from apologetic – she released a “non-apology” shortly after people began to complain, reinforcing her position on the subject. Recently, Maria Kang was at

The Good Doctor Recap: Who Left? Who Broke Up? And Who Died?

Is The Good Doctor scrubbing out?!

That was the question for much of Monday’s episode, which began with Shaun giving Glassman his two weeks notice. He no sooner asked Melendez for a letter of recommendation to transfer his residency to Penn State Medical Center. This was influenced by his desire to stay close to Lea, who last week revealed that she was moving to Hershey, Pa.

‘The Bachelor’ Recap: Women Wrestle For Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s Affection

‘The Bachelor’ Recap: Women Wrestle For Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s Affection
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “The Bachelor” episode from Monday, Jan. 15.

Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s third week as the Bachelor was packed with misbehaving dogs, awkward dates and fighting women — this time not just verbally, but physically as well.

Luyendyk, who was heartbroken by then-Bachelorette Emily Maynard in 2012, still has 18 girls competing for his heart — and the final rose — and tension is quickly starting to build as a few women have become frontrunners.

Monday’s episode started with host Chris Harrison announcing that “behind every good man is a really strong woman,” before giving the women a date card for the week’s first group outing. In a date inspired by 1980s show “Glow” (and the Netflix reboot), the women participated in “Glob,” the “Gorgeous Ladies of the ‘Bachelor'” wrestling. Two former female professional wrestlers tried to train the women, but some of the contestants quickly became emotional when the

The Accidental Story of How Song “American Woman” Was Made

I honestly would never have known that American Woman was an accidental song until now. Seriously, the track sounded so purposeful and managed to become an instant hit despite the fact that it might never have come along if not for one big mistake. The Guess Who were on their way across the border when they stopped for gas apparently and were told by a border guard that they would have to sign up for the draft. Thinking this wasn’t the best idea for them the group then made their way back into Canada, but without a gig to go
