    Fresh from the announcement that Clerks 3 would no longer be a Broadway play, but instead would become his final film as a director — followed thereupon by a counter-announcement that Clerks 3 would be a book first, then a movie — geek overlord Kevin Smith has once again made a mockery of the whole notion of Announcing Things by posting an image of what appears to the title page of the Clerks 3 screenplay.

    The image was posted to Smith’s Facebook page, with an accompanying note:

    20 years ago today, we started shooting CLERKS.
    20 years later, with no plan or provocation, I jumped out of bed at 4:20 this morning and started writing CLERKS III.
    It’s been like hanging out with old friends.
    And after 2 hours of tapping the keys and giggling, I have come to a conclusion…
    CLERKS III will be the best film I’ll ever make

    MAC’s celebrity collaborations are always head-turning, but they’ve never been quite this bright before. Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams has teamed up with the brand to release a four-piece collection, all in her signature shade: vibrant orange.

    “I didn’t wear makeup at all. Photographers would beg me to wear chapstick and I’d say no,” Williams tells PEOPLE of her days before discovering MAC. “I went to a [store] and picked up orange eyeshadow from MAC, that was the beginning of the end. It’s been key in making me feel like I have an onstage personality.”

    And even more of a no-brainer than partnering with her favorite makeup brand was the shade she’d select for her signature collection. “Orange was it for me from picking up the eyeshadow when I was 17,” she says. “It’s not a natural color, but when I wear it, people say ‘It looks normal on you!’ I feel like it was born with it. It matches my soul.”

    For girls a little more timid about diving headfirst into such a bright color, Williams says to start with the eyeshadow and work your way up. “The Daydreaming shadow is soft and pretty when you don’t keep layering it. I love colors like that … you get two looks,” she says. “The orange lipstick maybe isn’t for [every] girl. But it could be!”

    Williams says she loves to have fun with her makeup and is inspired by her fans; she especially loves seeing them wear looks she’s sported in the past. “The best thing about makeup is that it’s complete self expression, it’s art on your face,” she tells PEOPLE. “Makeup can be really empowering, and I’m excited to be part of the MAC family … and for fans to get ahold of it.”

    To check out Williams’s online-exclusive collection, visit MACCosmetics.com on April 9.

    The people have spoken. Elisabeth Hasselbeck, one of the five cohorts of ABC's daytime talk show The View, will not be returning to the couch next season, following hot on the footsteps of fellow cohost Joy Behar, a source tells Us Weekly.
    According to the source, the show's resident conservative voice is being ousted after market research revealed that she isn't popular with TV audiences.

    "The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right wing," the insider tells Us. "People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed."
    Hasselbeck, 35, joined the cast of the daytime talk show in November 2003 after guest-hosting the show following Lisa Ling's departure in 2002.

    Throughout the course of her time on The View, she has gotten into numerous arguments with her cohosts, including a heated argument with Rosie O'Donnell in 2007 over the War in Afghanistan and with Barbara Walters over Mitt Romney in 2012.
    Earlier this week, Behar, 70, announced her own departure from the show after 16 1/2 years.

    "You can't stay forever on a show," she told Good Morning America. "I am graciously exiting stage left. I've put in 16 1/2 years and felt the time was right. I want to explore other opportunities."
    Adds the source to Us: "Joy says it just felt ... tired and like work. She was over it."
    Behar has been with the talk show since its inception in 1997, and currently hosts Joy Behar: Say Anything! on Current TV.

    Last month the actor Forest Whitaker was stopped in a Manhattan delicatessen by an employee. But the man who approached the Oscar winner at the deli last month was in no mood for autographs. The employee stopped Whitaker, accused him of shoplifting and then promptly frisked him. The act of self-deputization was futile. Whitaker had stolen nothing. On the contrary, he’d been robbed.

    The deli where Whitaker was harassed happens to be in my neighborhood. Columbia University is up the street. Broadway, the main drag, is dotted with nice restaurants and classy bars that cater to beautiful people. I like my neighborhood. And I’ve patronized the deli with some regularity, often several times in a single day. I’ve sent my son in my stead. My wife would often trade small talk with whoever was working checkout. Last year when my beautiful niece visited, she loved the deli so much that I felt myself a sideshow. But it’s understandable. It’s a good deli.

    Since the Whitaker affair, I’ve read and listened to interviews with the owner of the establishment. He is apologetic to a fault and is sincerely mortified. He says that it was a “sincere mistake” made by a “decent man” who was “just doing his job.” I believe him. And yet for weeks now I have walked up Broadway, glancing through its windows with a mood somewhere between Marvin Gaye’s “Distant Lover” and Al Green’s “For the Good Times.”

    In modern America we believe racism to be the property of the uniquely villainous and morally deformed, the ideology of trolls, gorgons and orcs. We believe this even when we are actually being racist. In 1957, neighbors in Levittown, Pa., uniting under the flag of segregation, wrote: “As moral, religious and law-abiding citizens, we feel that we are unprejudiced and undiscriminating in our wish to keep our community a closed community.”

    A half-century later little had changed. The comedian Michael Richards (Kramer on “Seinfeld”) once yelled at a black heckler from the stage: “He’s a nigger! He’s a nigger! He’s a nigger!” Confronted about this, Richards apologized and then said, “I’m not a racist,” and called the claim “insane.”

    The idea that racism lives in the heart of particularly evil individuals, as opposed to the heart of a democratic society, is reinforcing to anyone who might, from time to time, find their tongue sprinting ahead of their discretion. We can forgive Whitaker’s assailant. Much harder to forgive is all that makes Whitaker stand out in the first place. New York is a city, like most in America, that bears the scars of redlining, blockbusting and urban renewal. The ghost of those policies haunts us in a wealth gap between blacks and whites that has actually gotten worse over the past 20 years.

    But much worse, it haunts black people with a kind of invisible violence that is given tell only when the victim happens to be an Oscar winner. The promise of America is that those who play by the rules, who observe the norms of the “middle class,” will be treated as such. But this injunction is only half-enforced when it comes to black people, in large part because we were never meant to be part of the American story. Forest Whitaker fits that bill, and he was addressed as such.

    I am trying to imagine a white president forced to show his papers at a national news conference, and coming up blank. I am trying to a imagine a prominent white Harvard professor arrested for breaking into his own home, and coming up with nothing. I am trying to see Sean Penn or Nicolas Cage being frisked at an upscale deli, and I find myself laughing in the dark. It is worth considering the messaging here. It says to black kids: “Don’t leave home. They don’t want you around.” It is messaging propagated by moral people.

    The other day I walked past this particular deli. I believe its owners to be good people. I felt ashamed at withholding business for something far beyond the merchant’s reach. I mentioned this to my wife. My wife is not like me. When she was 6, a little white boy called her cousin a nigger, and it has been war ever since. “What if they did that to your son?” she asked.

    And right then I knew that I was tired of good people, that I had had all the good people I could take.

    The British designer, 71, who criticized Duchess Kate’s style and makeup earlier this month, has now taken on our first lady. In an interview with The New York Times, Westwood – while discussing her upcoming “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibition at the New York Metropolitan Museum – took a few jabs at Michelle Obama’s wardrobe choices, much to the reporter’s surprise:

    The New York Times: You must love our first lady, who is famous for recycling her clothes.

    Westwood: Don’t talk about her. It’s dreadful what she wears.

    The New York Times: What?

    Westwood: I don’t want to talk about it. Really, I can’t. She’s a very nice looking lady, but it’s a nonstarter regarding clothes that suit her.

    Westwood, however, seemed to only have kind words for another first lady – Jackie Kennedy. “[She] was a different matter altogether,” Westwood said. “It just had to suit her and be something that makes a human being more glamorous.

    The response, as expected, has been less than forgiving, with readers calling Westwood a “very bitter and mean person,” “irrelevant” and even suggesting "someone’s in a snit because their clothes aren't being worn.”

    Now she's the mom next door.

    Holly Madison, who gave birth to a daughter on Tuesday, has chosen a name for her baby girl: Rainbow Aurora Rotella.

    "I wanted to give my daughter a unique name," she explains to E! News, who first reported the news.

    "Growing up, there was a girl in my school named Rainbow and I was so envious of that name. I thought it was so pretty and unique!"

    The former Playboy Bunny seems to be seriously smitten with motherhood.

    "I've been spending the last day or so learning how to be a mom – it's the best project in the world," the former Girls Next Door star wrote on her blog Friday, underneath a makeup-free photo of her and boyfriend Pasquale Rotella leaving the hospital. "I never thought I would be so happy – especially on so little sleep!"

    Cuddled up with a stuffed animal and a pink-themed ensemble, the reality star acknowledged her fans for their support in becoming a first-time parent.

    "I just wanted to say thank you for all the wonderful messages you guys have been posting!" she wrote. "I appreciate them all!"

    Demi Moore, 50, has formally filed divorce papers in response to Ashton Kutcher's previous filing in December, in which she seeks spousal support and also requests that Kutcher pay her legal bills.
    In the papers filed Thursday, she lists their separation date as November 17, 2011, and cites "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the divorce.

    According to The New York Post, Demi filed her own papers after she was "tired" of trying to reach a confidential settlement with Kutcher. According to the report, she had previously been hoping to quietly negotiate a settlement and then file the papers once an agreement was reached, but now, the couple's divorce could go to a trial.

    And clearly, there's a lot of money on the line -- Forbes named Kutcher, 35, the highest-paid actor on TV in 2012 thanks to his Two and a Half Men gig for which he reportedly earned $24 million between May 2011 and May 2012.

    Ashton and Demi began their May-December relationship in 2003 and married in 2005. In 2010, infidelity rumors about Ashton started to swirl, and on November 17, 2011, Demi took to Twitter to announce her plans to divorce her husband.

    Both appear to have moved on following their split, specifically Kutcher, who first publicly stepped out with his That '70s Show co-star Mila Kunis last spring.

    The Welsh songstress Marina and the Diamonds has been an official Big Deal back in the UK for a while, but now it’s time for the rest of us to catch up. Marina’s most recent album, Electra Heart, debuted at No. 1 in back in Britain — and her opening gig for Coldplay’s American tour and quirky-pop singles like “How to Be a Heartbreaker” have helped propel her to cult status Stateside.

    But her upcoming Glee-ification could be exactly the thing that brings her a wider American audience. “Heartbreaker” will be getting the official Ryan Murphy stamp of approval on the upcoming March 14th episode of Glee (Lea Michele will be singing it, if you were wondering), and Marina will follow that up with her Lonely Hearts Club tour of America.

    To celebrate, the singer has released an exclusive preview of the tour, and you can watch it exclusively here.The clip also serves as a preview of her upcoming Heartcore documentary, which will offer fans an inside look at Marina’s Electra Heart journey and the Lonely Hearts Club tour.

    From the original article, Wretches of the Hidden Temple: Cruelest game show, played by worst children:

    Surely these kids aren't dumb. Surely they are good at problem-solving and get good grades in school and know how to do long division. This is just what this show does to you, man: it rips the ambitions out of your preteen soul and reduces you to a wandering ghoul without short-term memory or long-term ambition. It envelops you in a matrix of horrors. In these three minutes, the waters rise and fall, the fields erode to canyons, civilizations are built and toppled, and at the very end, you are left to cling to a rope, without destination or purpose.

    You short heroes. You little fools.

    [...] Well, as luck would have it, a former contestant on the show saw the piece and offered to talk about her time on Hidden Temple.

    Keeli, then 12 years old, appeared on the "Stone Marker of Leif Erikson" episode. By the time their Temple Run began, Keeli and her Red Jaguars teammate had spent the last 12 hours advancing through various rounds of competition, including the Steps of Knowledge, in which they were given a brief history lesson and answered a series of trivia questions accordingly.

    "To be honest," Keeli says, "I thought we were pretty much dead in the water on the Steps of Knowledge because my partner was an abject idiot."
    Keeli did all her team's work on her own, correctly answering all three of her questions to send the Red Jaguars forward in the tournament.

    [...] Over the 120-episode run of the show, only 32 teams would ever win the Temple Run round. Of course, neither Keeli nor anyone else knew that. "If I recall correctly, we were the first day of filming for the first season of this show, so I don't think the show-runners had really any idea that this game was practically impossible for a kid between the ages of 12 and 14 to complete."

    [...] The Temple was quite an ambitious set for a game show, and on the first day of shooting, glitches abounded. A bucket lift in one room seems to have been completely missing. Several doors didn't open properly. Keeli actually had to start the Temple Run three times, as the first two were halted due to faulty equipment.

    [...] So what are the Temple Guards there for?

    Scaring the Hell out of kids, apparently. The Temple Guards, Keeli says, "are the scariest thing imaginable. Nothing is scarier and I will stand by that statement until the day I die.

    [...] "When the second Guard got me and ushered me through that little door to the back of the set, I just burst into tears. I was scared. I was tired.

    "I'm 31 and I can't go to haunted houses. I'm deathly afraid of things popping out of closets and doors, etc., at me. I can't watch scary movies where things jump out and scare people. Can I say that this is directly related to that? No, not 100 percent, but ..."

    Legends of the Hidden Temple was re-run for several years. Each time her episode aired, she said, a different grand prize was featured than the one that was actually at stake. One was a trip to Universal Studios -- which is where the show was being filmed in the first place.

    The actual grand prize, which she wasn't made aware of until the episode aired, was a trip to Busch Gardens. I asked her whether it hurt to fall just short.

    "Have you ever been to Busch Gardens? It's a shitshow."

    (Alright, alright, listen to the song and then enter the post since it is depressing)

    We've all done school projects that highlight all the accomplishments that women have done and contributed throughout history and we've all been through our Ginger "Girl Power!" phase when watching Spice World, but this article highlights some struggles women are facing today that are horrendous. Since it is international women's day, there are a lot of women across the globe who don't have the rights you do -- and if we're still fighting issues and sexism everyday, one can only imagine how much more difficult it is for them to overcome those obstacles. In the true spirit of helping a sista out, hopefully this spreads some awareness and inspires some action:

    On International Women’s Day, we have a number of groundbreaking accomplishments to celebrate. This year alone, women in the U.S. won the right to serve on the front lines in combat and President Obama inched closer to pushing for equal pay for men and women.

    Global health for women has also seen some major boons, too. The number of mothers who die during childbirth has been reduced by almost 50 percent and HIV drug prices have fallen by more than 99 percent since 2000.

    But we’re not done fighting yet.

    Women across the globe still face horrifying abuse and health risks, including sexual exploitation and genital mutilation, devastating injustices that are in our power to eliminate in this lifetime. Read through disturbingly sad truths women face and find out how you can get involved in improving the lives of women across the world.

    Female Genital Mutilation

    FACT: In Africa alone, 101 million girls have undergone female genital mutilation, a cultural practice that’s meant to keep girls chaste, but subjects them to intense torture in the process. With no anesthetic, a girl’s genitals are carved out (including her clitoris and labia) and what remains is stitched together, allowing a small enough aperture for urination and menstruation, which can lead to serious health consequences, New York Times' Nicholas Kristof reports.

    What you can do: While the practice has been recognized internationally as a violation of the human rights, activists say that through education and raising awareness, we can work to ultimately change the culture to end the practice. Find out more here.

    Maternal Health

    FACT: Every year, life-threatening complications from pregnancy and childbirth claim the lives of nearly 300,000 women, according to the Gates Foundation. While the number of mothers who died in childbirth has been reduced by nearly 50 percent, it is within our reach to reduce that figure to zero.

    What you can do: Low-cost medical interventions with local healthcare providers are critical to protecting and saving the lives of expectant mothers. Learn more about how the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Maternal, Neonatal & Child Health is advocating for mothers and how you can get involved here.


    (I'll spare you any pictures, but you can imagine how bad it is)

    FACT: Fistula –- a hole that develops between a woman’s vagina and bladder or rectum –- is one of the most devastating birth injuries and it affects between 30,000 to 50,000 women a year simply because they can’t afford proper medical care. The condition leads to such severe incontinence that the woman’s body leaks urine and feces, and oftentimes, the smell becomes so unbearable that her husband will force her out of the home to fend for herself.

    What you can do: Support the Fistula Foundation, which raises awareness for the condition and funding for repair, prevention, and educational programs worldwide to help eliminate fistula. Get involved here.


    FACT: One in three women on the planet will be raped in her lifetime, that’s a total of 1 billion women subjected to devastating violence.

    What you can do: Join 1 Billion Rising, a global movement that came together on Valentine’s Day to demand an end to violence against women, and continues to fight for women’s right to live in a world where their safety is never at stake. Get involved here.

    More at the Source (I know, I know, but it's a list and you know how hard ass ONTD is about how many are allowed via the rules).


    Use this post to discuss the issues, discuss any problems you've face in your life, and also celebrate anything great that women have done and will contribute. Go on, gworls.

    Well, this certainly won't help stop the rumor mill.

    Miley Cyrus opted to step out on Thursday sans her engagement ring...for the second night in a row.

    You know, the ring given to her by fiancé Liam Hemsworth, the guy the 20-year-old insists she still plans on marrying.

    Adding fuel to the breakup speculation fire, of course, is the fact that she and a mystery man were spotted en route to a house party in North Hollywood.

    No comment from Cyrus on Twitter. Looks like she really is "taking a break from social media."

    The View is changing yet again with insiders saying Brooke Shields will be joining the chaotic and cast challenged ABC morning show!

    The news comes hot on the heels of Joy Behar‘s announcement that she’ll be leaving the show and a shocking report that Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s contract hasn’t been renewed.

    According to the website showbiz411, it’s “likely” Brooke will be joining The View next season. Showbiz411′s sources say the show’s den mother, Barbara Walters, really wants Brooke because 47-year-old actress, who has already guest hosted on The View, has all the right stuff to appeal to fans. She’s articulate, has Hollywood connections perfect for nabbing interviews, is the right age, and is a mom!

    The View has been its own “hot topic” since Joy Behar announced she was quitting after 17 years. Then, as RadarOnline.com recently reported, sources say Elisabeth Hasselbeck will also not be back next season. According to US Weekly, Elisabeth was judged to be “too extreme and right wing” to remain on the show.

    According to Showbiz411, although The View deal with Brooke isn’t yet done, it’s close!

    In the House of the Undying by Daniel Danger

    AUSTIN, Texas — Each year, movie nerds flock to the South by Southwest Film Festival for the chance to see scads of movies at the cinephile-friendly, beer-serving Alamo Drafthouse Cinema’s Ritz Theater. This year, however, Alamo Drafthouse is offering something for TV fantasy nerds too — a gallery show of original Game of Thrones art.

    That’s right. The brains behind Mondo – the Alamo collectible-art division responsible for all of those rad movie posters– have asked a talented crew of artists to make original pieces based on the HBO show. The result is a series of eight screen prints and nearly 30 pieces of original art – the latter of which, along with two of the screen prints, will be on display at a Mondo gallery event beginning Friday and running through March 14.

    Mondo, which was born out of Alamo founder Tim League’s vintage iron-on T-shirt enterprise Mondo Tees, enlisted some of its best and brightest artists for the show, including San Francisco Blade Runner aficionado Craig Drake, on-record Game of Thrones fan Daniel Danger, and rock poster designer Ken Taylor. It also brought on artists previously unknown to the Mondo roster like Sanjulian and Audrey Kawasaki. Some of the artists were already familiar with the terrain of Westeros, but some had to be indoctrinated — not that they minded.

    “Everyone else kind of said … ‘I watched one [episode] and I couldn’t stop watching them,’” Mondo’s creative director Justin Ishmael said in an interview with Wired. “People were really into it and that’s what we like to hear when we work with people on a series like this.”

    It’s not the first time Mondo has done something with Game of Thrones– the Alamo creative wing did a handful of sought-after posters for the show for last year’s Comic-Con International – but this series is far more elaborate than those done for the conference. The gallery show also brought on interesting challenges like making sure no one made art of an already killed-off character and ensuring the gallery didn’t end up with two dozen Tyrion Lannister paintings. The latter, however, turned out to be relatively easy. According to Ishmael there are a couple Daenerys Targaryen painting and Tyrions, but nearly every character is represented overall.

    “Jason Edmiston did a really great Khaleesi [Daenerys] piece and she’s like the most popular character,” he said. “Then you have a lot of people wanting to do The Hound, where it’s not like a character where you think, ‘Oh yeah, The Hound, he’s one of my favorites!’”

    In addition to premiering new artwork, Mondo’s gallery show will also be the unveiling of Brewery Ommegang’s much talked-about Game of Thrones beer “Iron Throne” (soon to be reviewed by Wired). While the beer will sadly only be available during the opening, the Game of Thrones art will be on display at the Mondo Gallery in Austin starting at 7 p.m. on Friday and running through March 14.
