Bethenny Frankel's Talk Show Axed: What Should She Do Next?

Originally posted 02/15/2014 10:20AM

Bethenny Frankel has played her hand well ... just about as well as anyone who found fame with a reality show called The Real Housewives of New York City could.

No, she played it better – she has been disciplined and smart. Look at IMDb.com: Bethenny has 41 credits as herself. Jill Zarin has only 25.

And, yes, LuAnn de Lesseps acted on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and released a single called "Chic, C'est La Vie." However, the ultimate reality star is she who builds the strongest career for herself as herself.

More Flowers In the Attic, Please: Which V.C. Andrews Nightmare Novel Should TV Adapt Next?

Originally posted 01/17/2014 09:00AM

Disinvite your brother, ditch the powdered doughnuts and get ready because on Saturday night, Flowers in the Attic returns to television.

The blockbuster Gothic young adult novel began the infamous Dollanganger family saga, which includes Petals on the Wind, If There Be Thorns, Seeds of Yesterday, and Garden of Shadows. (All of the books in the series hit number one on the New York Times Bestseller List, by the way.)

Since the late 1970s, Andrews's Flowers novel has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide, has been translated into 22 languages and was banned by schools across the country – all while being passed from bunk to bunk at sleepaway camp.

PEOPLE's TV Critic: Lifetime's Flowers In the Attic Is Crazy Good

Flowers in the Attic is the rare Lifetime movie (it airs Saturday at 8 p.m. ET/PT) that can't simply be written off as a Lifetime movie. It's so pure and perverse an example of American Gothic, I felt compelled to read the original VC Andrews novel to try and comprehend what sort of imagination could hatch such a nutty story – a fairy tale, really, that somehow combines Hansel and Gretel and The Blue Lagoon. In Virginia horse country.

Flowers, both the book and the new movie, is completely absurd – if you want to gauge the absurdity, just know that one of the darkest secrets in the narrative involves a doughnut – but somehow also psychologically coherent. It has a grip.

Fancasting a Morning News Rivalry: The Today Show vs. Good Morning America

Morning news is about to become more dramatic than you ever imagined – and you'll get to watch it all unfold in a new made-for-TV movie.

Lifetime is adapting former New York Times media reporter Brian Stelter’s book, Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV, into a television movie.

The book chronicles the fierce rivalry between two flagship morning news programs: ABC's Good Morning America and NBC's Today. The story focuses on the intrigue surrounding the 2012 ouster of former Today anchor Ann Curry, who left the show when the NBC stalwart began to lose the ratings race to GMA.

With development underway, we can't help but imagine who will play Matt Lauer – let alone Kathie Lee Gifford, Sam Champion or Al Roker. Check out our humble suggestions, starting with the Today show team:

If you were a Full House fan in the 90s, you likely wanted Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky to bring their TV romance outside of the Tanner household. (And judging by the homemade montages on YouTube, some fans are still holding out hope for a hook up.)

In a new interview with Lori Loughlin, who played Aunt Becky, the actress reveals that a relationship with John Stamos during their run on the hit TGIF sitcom wasn't in the cards, timing-wise.

Lindsay Lohan Is a Fascinating (if Terrible) Elizabeth Taylor in Liz & Dick: Review

Completely miscast as Elizabeth Taylor in Liz & Dick, Lindsay Lohan makes a reckless but brave dive into a pool that anyone can see is empty. And yet she survives.

The Liz showcased in this unrevealing bio is Taylor in the years of her stormy, world-publicized life with Richard Burton (Grant Bowler). By this point in her career, nearing 40, the legendary beauty was giving way to the gauzy celebrity who sailed through decades on a golden barge rowed by paparazzi.
