Elizabeth Berkley wants nothing to do with the ‘Saved By the Bell’ Lifetime movie

Elizabeth Berkley

Because Lifetime is a network that likes to shit all over anything good in life (and still make you really want to watch it in the process), they’re doing an unauthorized Saved By the Bell movie, which will apparently focus not on the show, but on the behind-the-scenes drama that went on during filming it… and there was apparently plenty of it. Oh, and lots of drugs and sex, too (this according to Dustin Diamond, mind).

While people who grew up watching the show are pretty keen to see this, there’s one person in particular who is not a fan of the idea: Elizabeth Berkley, who played Jessie Spano.

“I know nothing about what they are planning,” the Showgirls star, 41, admitted to Us Weekly. “I’m not really curious about it because we know the life we led, and I have no idea what their picture of it is. So who knows!”

Here’s hoping that storyline where Jessie gets addicted to caffeine pills wasn’t pulled from real life, I guess? Y’all know I will torrent and watch the shit out of this movie. Saved By the Bell was my life growing up – I even wrote a fan letter to Tiffani Amber Thiessen when I was like, 8, and got a pre-printed “autographed” postcard back that I kept on my windowsill. (Yes, I was clearly always gay.)

Anyhow, just as a reminder, here’s EBerks in her Jessie Spano heyday:

Yesssss, bring back the ’90s!

Kylie Jenner needs her license taken away

Kylie Jenner has already crashed her car and gotten a few tickets in her short driving career, and now it’s pretty clear why: the kid won’t get off her phone, even when she’s behind the wheel. While driving around LA with her friend (who has been accurately described by one commenter as a “bootleg Vanessa Hudgens”), Kylie had to get her angles right as she filmed herself lip syncing and even turned the camera on her friend. Now, the passenger could easily have filmed this without putting them at risk for an accident, but what fun would that be?

Idiots. PUT YOUR PHONE DOWN WHILE YOU ARE DRIVING. It’s not that hard and you’re not going to miss anything. Also, that gold grill? Awful. Get rid of it.

Lea Michele gets her ass out for Instagram

I feel like Lea Michele is one of the most exhausting humans on planet earth. She tries so, so hard in everything she does – absolutely EVERYTHING – because she wants so badly to be liked, to be admired and desired, and she has to be the best at anything she puts her hand to. She’s not, of course, because no human is, but don’t tell her that. I feel like she IS her Glee character Rachel Berry in real life.

Her latest efforts seem to be concentrated on shedding her goody two shoes image and proving to the world that she’s hip and sexy. It’s not working, of course, but don’t tell her that – she’s not going to give up trying! Ugh, please, just stop, girl.

These latest images were posted to Lea’s Instagram as she vacations in Capri. Please, Italy, you can keep her.

Beyonce is headlining the ’50 Shades of Grey’ soundtrack

Here’s a bit of news you probably didn’t see coming, but also probably isn’t all that surprising: Beyoncé is headlining the soundtrack for the 50 Shades of Grey movie. I sort of feel like this is an awful decision, but I suppose from a financial perspective, it’s a no-brainer.

What exactly she’ll be doing – as in, how many songs, whether it’ll be something new or from the last album, etc – no one’s sure, but I suppose we’ll be finding out soon enough, since Bey herself posted this on Instagram this morning:

What do you think of the Beyonce/50 Shades team up? Disaster? Dream?

Adam Levine is a married man now

Adam Levine has been engaged to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo for about 9 months, and he’s been preparing for the big day ever since. Well, it seems that day has come, as Adam and Behati are officially man and wife after tying the knot at Floras Farms in Los Cabos, Mexico yesterday.

From US Weekly:

The bride and groom were feted by about 300 guests for the special day, including Jonah Hill, Jason Segel, Erin Heatherton and Candice Swanepoel. Prinsloo, 25, opted for a stunning Marchesa gown to exchange vows, which lasted 20 minutes. In lieu of wedding gifts the couple asked for charity donations.

Levine, 35, and Prinsloo had a star-studded bridal party. Several of Prinsloo’s Victoria’s Secret model friends were bridesmaids, while Levine’s Maroon 5 bandmates played significant roles. In a recent interview, guitarist James Valentine revealed he would be performing during the ceremony.

Huh. Who wants to be the first to place bets on how long this will last? I give them 2 years. See if I’m right! But enough pessimism for today, I suppose. Congrats to the happy couple!

‘Homeland’ season 4 first trailer released

HOMELAND (Season 4)

If you’re a fan of Homeland – or if you watched it even after it got sorta shitty and really boring – then you probably ended last season thinking, “Huh, how are they gonna make another year of this?” Well, they are, and the first trailer for the show’s 4th season has been released!

Everything is looking pretty intense this time around. Carrie is overseas, Saul is still being the world’s cutest pepaw, the other dude whose name is escaping me but who’s nuts over Carrie is still around… it actually looks pretty good. It’s a complete shift of direction, which is what they really need.

What do you think so far? Looking forward to the next season of Homeland?

Lady Gaga’s former assistant is writing a tell-all book

lady gaga jennifer o'neill

You may or may not remember that back in 2011, Lady Gaga got sued by a her former assistant, Jennifer O’Neill, for a whole lot of unpaid overtime. That lawsuit brought a lot of bizarre claims to the forefront, like how O’Neill had to sleep in the same bed as Gaga because she couldn’t bear to sleep alone and how she had to be on call 24/7 to stand outside the shower and hand Gaga her towel when she got out.

Well, O’Neill is back and badder than ever, and this time she’s writing a tell-all book about her two years working with Mama Monster. Spoiler: It was awful!

Here’s the scoop from The Guardian:

Atria Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, have told the Hollywood Reporter and New York Post that O’Neill has inked a contract with them. It’s a deal worth “up to $1 million”, according to the Post, though they have yet to announce a publication date.

O’Neill’s history with Gaga first came to light in 2011, when she sued the singer for hundreds of thousands of dollars in overtime pay. Between 2009 and 2011, O’Neill claimed, she was expected “to be working and available 24/7″ – handling Gaga’s luggage, administering her “medicine”, waking her up, and even “ensuring the promptness of a towel following a shower”. As part of her testimony, O’Neill alleged that she was “required” to sleep in Gaga’s bed, “because [the star] didn’t sleep alone”.

Gaga was not pleased with O’Neill’s allegations. “This whole case is bullshit and you know it,” she said during a recorded deposition. “[Jennifer] thinks she’s just like the queen of the universe … [but] in my work and what I do, I’m the queen of the universe every day … She knew there was no overtime … [She's a] fucking hood-rat who is suing me for money that she didn’t earn.”

Right, so there are some bigtime issues I have here with this whole thing. Sure, O’Neill’s claims about “running errands” are bullshit because uh, what do you think you were hired to do? That being said, Gaga’s the queen of the universe every day? She doesn’t pay overtime when she’s a fucking millionaire? She’s going on the record to call her former assistant a “hood-rat”? Even if you think that privately, have some class and dignity when it comes to legal cases.  If there’s one “hood-rat” here, it’s Gaga.

I can’t wait to read this book. I hope O’Neill trashes Gaga good and lets out some seriously juicy stuff. If there was no overtime, I hope there was no NDA, either.
