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.

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.

It wasn't Bel-Air, or even West Philadelphia, but Will Smith grabbed a microphone in London and proved he hasn't forgotten his Fresh Prince roots.
The megastar and son Jaden pleasantly shocked The Graham Norton Show audience Friday when they stood up during their appearance to promote After Earth and rapped the theme song to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air – with the help of Smith's old pal, DJ Jazzy Jeff. (Smith racked up eight million YouTube hits when he rapped the theme song last time he was on the show.)

Zac Efron and Heather Graham are in Chicago to film the new movie Heartland – but the costars got an unexpected treat when they hit up Board Room, a new nightclub: a 15-liter bottle of Armand de Brignac champagne. The gift, courtesy of bar patron who had already tallied quite the bill, cost $100,000. After gifting them, he invited the actors over to share the bubbly and, in fact, the new friends stuck together, drinking until 4 a.m. – Jennifer Garcia
