Starter Wife Finished - Debra Messing is out of a job. The Starter Wife has been canceled by the USA network because it has basically tanked in the ratings since becoming a weekly show. It should have stayed a mini-series but people get greedy and thought they could make a buck. The last episode aired on December 12.
Catherine Hardwicke Turned Down Tons Of $ - Apparently Catherine Hardwicke would like us all to know she can't be bought. The Twilight director was offered more money than she or her family had ever seen or heard about before to direct the second installment of the series. Hardwicke though refused to compromise her artistic integrity and therefore turned the company down when they would not agree to her shooting schedule. Oh well. I understand the thing about integrity and all that, but it is Twilight. It is not going to be Oscar nominated. It is a popcorn flick. They are the films you make your money on. When you have all that stupid money then you go shoot the documentary about the African stinging beetle and how it is affecting the literacy rate of 8-12 year old boys in Chad who come from a single family home.
Bye Bye Nicollette - Nicollette Sheridan is saying goodbye to Desperate Housewives. I think she is also probably saying goodbye to a steady paycheck. The actress is getting less face time and so this is probably a good thing for the other four housewives and not such a good thing for the future endeavors of Nicollette who her rep said is looking forward to her next project. Uh huh. Hello David Spade.
