UnREAL: DeAnna Pappas Stagliano Previews Lifetime's New Bachelor-esque Drama

Originally posted 05/26/2015 04:15PM

For reality-TV fans – Bachelor fans, especially – Lifetime's upcoming drama UnREAL will feel more than a little familiar.

PEOPLE has an exclusive sneak-peek clip of the series, starring Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer, which offers a behind-the-scenes look at a fictitious reality romance show in which a group of women vie for the heart of one suitor (see where we're going with this?).

"It's totally realistic," former Bachelor and Bachelorette star DeAnna Stagliano (née Pappas) tells PEOPLE of the clip.

"It reminded me of the show in the way the carriage rolled up and the woman got out playing the violin," she continues. "It's totally something a contestant would do to get someone's attention!"

If There Be Thorns: How Twitter Reacted to the Third Flowers in the Attic Film

If There Be Thorns: How Twitter Reacted to the Third Flowers in the Attic Film

Originally posted 04/05/2015 11:00PM

Lifetime aired the third and penultimate installment of V.C. Andrews's Flowers in the Attic saga on Sunday night, and the Internet naturally freaked out.

Thorns flashes forward on Flowers' incestuous (but deeply in love!) siblings Cathy and Christopher Dollanganger Sheffield (Rachael Carpani and Jason Lewis) to find them grown-up, married and stalked by their mother Corrine (Heather Graham), who vengefully begins to turn Cathy's youngest child Bart (Mason Cook) – who was conceived through an affair with Corrine's late husband Bart Winslow (Dylan Bruce) – against his parents. Only, Corrine doesn't realize her butler John Amos (Mackenzie Gray) has his own secret agenda for her twisted clan, which leads to a fatal, fiery climax similar to Petals on the Wind, the series's preceding installment.

Did you get all that? No worries, viewers didn't really either. Though Lifetime aired the first two TV movies over the last 14 months, Thorns was consistently met with a resounding "Whaaaaaaat?!" from Tweeters, who simply were not prepared for the subject matter or Andrews's labyrinthine plot – or at least the parts of it that Lifetime's teleplay didn't change.

Below, we've chosen some of the most intense and amusing reactions.

5 Ways Yaya DaCosta Became Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston Biopic: How Yaya DaCosta Became The Singer

Originally posted 01/17/2015 07:40PM

Whitney Houston is one of the most recognizable singers in the history of music, so Yaya DaCosta did not take it lightly when she was cast to portray the icon in the Lifetime movie Whitney.

"I initially wanted to become her exactly. I was just set to do everything in my power to make the audience almost forget that they weren't really watching Whitney," the former America's Next Top Model contestant, 32, tells PEOPLE. "But then I realized that I only had a few days to prepare. It was more important to try and capture her essence than to go crazy because that could have come across as a mockery."

So just how did DaCosta capture Houston's essence?
