“This isn’t a fling,” 90210’s executive producer Rebecca Sinclair tells Entertainment Weekly. “We’re coming at this [relationship] from a genuine place and not going, ‘Let’s do a titillating story that will grab some promotion.’ This is a real aspect of teenager life that’s interesting … And there’s been a real void in the 90210 universe in terms of gay and bisexual characters.”
So who will Gia fall for? Teen mom Adrianna, played by Jessica Lowndes.
“I’ve never kissed a girl before so it’s a little nerve-racking,” Lowndes says in the mag.

Gaga revealed in an interview with New York’s Z100 radio station on Tuesday morning. “And I’m like, ‘I don’t want to show up in some frickin’ hair bow and be fashion Gaga in your video.’ I said, ‘I want to do you.’” In the same interview, Gaga said she just wanted to “do my version of Beyoncé, so the whole time I was learning the choreography they were calling me Gee-yoncé.” “Video Phone” is Beyoncé’s next single from the album “I Am…Sasha Fierce.” Gaga also mentioned that she and Beyoncé are working on music together, but did not elaborate on the details. We can’t wait for that to happen!
Speculation about her departure ranged from a strife with FOX to rumors of cancer (thanks to her new haircut).

"If it all works out, she'll play a dermatologist that my character can't stop going to even though the doctor is mean to me," Cox Arquette, 45, tells TV Guide. "She's the best in town at what she does and I become addicted."
So will any of her other former onscreen pals make an appearance on Cougar Town?
"I did ask Matthew [Perry] if he'd play my boyfriend on the show," she said. "He thought it was a little too much after Chandler and Monica." (On Friends, Perry and Arquette's characters got married.)
As for her real life BFF Jennifer Aniston, Cox Arquette says, "I'd love for her to be on the show, too. Obviously we can't cast her so close to Lisa’s appearance but if there’s a great part for her, I'd send it right away."
The two famously locked lips on Cox Arquette's previous show Dirt.

The film is the directorial debut of 35-year old Nicolo Donato, a former fashion photographer.
Popowich tried out for the show last year but didn’t make the top 20. But what a difference a year makes. She not only came back this year but managed to kick butt and secure herself the $100,000 grand prize and a 2010 Mazda 3 Sport. (read more)
The 19-year-old, former fiancé of Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol is set to show it all before the camera the middle of next month "in order to get the pictures out for the holidays," a Playgirl spokesperson tells the New York Post.
"We're working out the actual details day-by-day, and have come to a very happy conclusion, which we feel readers will be enthralled by," the rep reveals.
The budding media star's manager, Tank Jones, says he's "90 percent sure" the photo session, for which Johnston is reportedly receiving a six-figure monetary endowment, will feature full-frontal nudity.
In terms of looking buff in the buff, Johnston hired a trainer, Marvin Jones, who also advised the teen on his diet. "Moose meat is very good for you, high in protein and very lean," Jones told PEOPLE. "He's an avid hunter, so he has his own."

With DVD sales declining and Blu-rays still trying to find a mass audience, studios are constantly searching for The Next Big Thing. The Mouse House thinks it may be Key chest, a system that will offer consumers access to movies anywhere, anytime.
The concept is not entirely new, but if it succeeds, it could mark fundamental shifts in the biz's marketing, distribution and pricing of films and rival studios (many of which are working on a similar system) are carefully watching Disney's progress.
The system allows consumers to "own" a film or TV title, but they don't own anything physical at all. While studios currently sell downloads of movies and TV shows, they would instead sell subscriptions to access digital libraries.
Walt Disney Home Entertainment is working on technology that uses the "digital cloud" principle, which will let buyers pay one price for permanent access to movies or TV shows that are never downloaded -- but are always accessible via a wide variety of devices, including cell phones, cable services, PCs and web-enabled Blu-ray players.
Consumers would access the content by purchasing a digital "key" or password. (read more)

The actress, who's denied knowledge of a sequel on numerous occasions in the past, now says she has heard that the project is being worked on.
"I know it's still going to be Abba music, because what else would it be. Come on, I wouldn't do Mamma Mia 2 without Benny and Bjorn" she told Newsbeat during press for "Chloe".
So she'd come back? "I will do it. And I know Meryl's game as well, so bring it on. It will be so cool."

The decision to cut the two actors has been “the original plan going into the development of the show,” executive producer Todd Slavkin tells EW. “We felt that once the murder mystery [involving their characters] was resolved, the tone of the show was going to shift … and [Simpson-Wentz's] character would move on.”
In a statement released after the announcement, Simpson-Wentz said, “Having the chance to play Violet on Melrose Place has been a thrill. Although I always knew her story would come to a final, insanely unpredictable end, playing a creepy, unstable character was something I always wanted to do, so I jumped at the chance. Thanks to the CW and the entire cast and crew of Melrose Place for allowing me this opportunity.”
The actors’ departure comes just a few weeks after original Melrose alum Heather Locklear began filming scenes for upcoming episodes.
Simpson-Wentz and Egglesfield took the news “like professionals,” says Slavkin. “Because they knew ahead of time [that leaving was a possibility], it wasn’t a complete shock.” (read more)
The hit series has been building an audience and filling the iTunes charts with its cover songs, and Madonna’s involvement is a testament to how big the show is getting.
Also, an amazing Glee cover of a classic Madonna track has the potential to be even bigger than the show’s blockbuster take on “Don’t Stop Believin’.” Quinn totally has to do “Papa Don’t Preach.” And I can completely see Rachel tackling “Material Girl."
