James King took the name James as a childhood nickname to avoid confusion at her top modeling agency, Company Management. She was born Jaime, back in 1979, but Company Management were already representing the high profile model Jaime Rishar. When "James" entered their Manhattan doors, she was a freckled, gorgeous, button-nosed blonde from Nebraska. She looked wholesome and all-American, but there was more to the model Polaroid. With her husky voice, stylish wardrobe, effortless taste in movies and downtown music, she was a lot like fellow peer Chloë Sevigny. She was an It Girl. Her boyfriend was super hip Italian photographer Davide Sorrenti. The only problem was It Girls get lonely.
The CW has confirmed that Gossip Girl will air its sixth and final season this fall. The show that brought you all that Upper East Side drama, sexy fashion, and neurotic characters will end with plenty of surprises in store. The final season promises to reveal the identity of 'Gossip Girl' and will focus on Nate's mission to reveal the secret. Chace Crawford who plays Nate Archibald described the show's ending as "bittersweet."
We also hear Serena, played by Blake Lively, will go off the grid with her friends and viewers will ultimately not know what her future holds.
Who: Twilight's Ashley Greene
What: Hosting the hour long, Fashion Forward: Making It
Where: The CW
When: December 8, 2010 at 9 p.m.
Fashion Forward: Making It is meant to reveal the "not-so-pretty" side of the fashion world and how some of the world's top designers and fashion icons made it in the industry. Some designers that will be featured are Tory Burch, Alexander Wang, David Neville from Rag & Bone, Justin Timberlake, and Gwen Stefani. If you love fashion then you can not miss out on this special.
About Andre's capes:
“I went to Ralph Rucci when I started this thing. We came up with these wonderful designs that are based on 17th-century Edo samurai tunic-coats. And Ralph, who is extraordinarily gifted, understood my desire to have something that would pop on TV.” This thing? Classic. And we die!
The good thing to come out of all of this just may be that Ralph Rucci may receive his well-needed press and attention. Though we wouldn't put it past Tyra to direct everyone's attention back to, well, herself.
Last Friday, the CW cancelled it's newest drama "The Beautiful Life" after only two episodes. The show, starring Mischa Barton, Sara Paxton, and Elle Macpherson, recevieved low ratings. Although the show was produced by Ashton Kutcher, it only premiered with approximately 1.5 million viewers and lost about 60 percent of the audience the following week, to "America's Next Top Model." For now, The CW plans on filling the vacant timeslot with re-runs of the new "Melrose Place."
Spotted: Blake Lively, Ed Westick, Chace Crawford, and Leighton Meester yesterday morning in Grammercy Park. Yes, season 3 of Gossip Girl has officially commenced shooting. After a two month hiatus, everyone’s favorite guilty pleasure cast is back in action, with more drama, plot twists and even new cast members. (Joanna Garcia of CW’s Privileged supposed to play a southern belle and Nate’s new love interest) So ladies, gents, whoever you are, be on the prowl for these hotties during the next few months, as they’ll surely be out and about in Manhattan filming new episodes.
Check out pics from the cast’s first day of shooting, and Chace Crawford’s new haircut!
Remember that show about the sleazy activities of rich people that came out in the 90’s? You’re thinking about 90210, but in fact, I’m talking about its counterpart, Melrose Place. All I remember about it is Heather Locklear and her seductive ways.
Well it seems CW is replicating the show with a brand new cast. Ashlee Simpson will have an entire season to redeem her television career after her lip-sinking debacle on SNL. Lucky for us, she won’t be forced to hit any notes on the series. Hopefully. At least she is relevant; when is the last we’ve heard from Jessica. Kate Cassidy takes over as the bad-ass blonde played by Locklear. The show debuts this fall on CW.
Aaron Spelling will have to turn back over in his grave. The CW plans to resurrect Spelling sudser Melrose Place for the fall 2009 season. One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwann has been tapped to pen the script for the revamped series.
Earlier this year, the CW brought Beverly Hills, 90210 back to life with moderate success. Tabloid darlings Shenae Grimes, 19 and Annalyn McCord, 21 helped draw attention to the show with their waning appetites and figures. Who do you think should return to reprise their roles on the small screen? Former star Grant Show, aka Jake Hanson, already turned down a CW exec when he found out he wouldn’t get $150,000 an episode. We hear Heather Locklear might be up for a reoccurring spot on ABC’s Brothers & Sisters; but surely Melrose can’t exist without maven Amanda Woodward.
