I guess that the networks will cancel their shows.  After a so far quiet killing season among the network ranks, NBC dropped the guillotine this evening on two of its shows.  Lipstick Jungle and My Own Worst Enemy are no more.  They have perished.  Cancellations have been levied, and there will be no saving either show.  Lipstick Jungle has filmed all 13 episodes of its initial half-season order, though it‘s unclear whether it, or My Own Worst Enemy (which is currently filming its ninth and final episode), will continue on the schedule for the time being or be immediately removed from the schedule.  Nonetheless, it‘s a disappointing moment for NBC, which had high hopes for each show, only to see them fail miserably in the ratings.  Read more »
Three of “New York‘s most powerful women” have simply fallen prey to the hands of network executives.  It was recently announced that Lipstick Jungle was canceled by NBC, leaving fans to wonder what‘s going to happen tonight.  After attracting a modest amount of viewers in its past seasons, the series had little chance to survive.  However, it seems as though NBC isn‘t ready to let go of it that quickly.  It has been confirmed that the remaining episodes of the season will indeed be aired.  The only problem is that the series‘ storylines won‘t be wrapped up that cleanly, as it won‘t be returning for season 3.  Based on the book by Sex and the City‘s Candace Bushnell, Lipstick Jungle follows the exploits of three friends who have been dominant forces in their areas of expertise.  The series debuted as a midseason replacement show last February, and was originally part of NBC‘s Thursday line-up.  Lipstick Jungle starred Brooke Shields, Kim Raver and Lindsay Price, but this wasn‘t enough to pull up ratings.  Read more »
Lipstick Jungle isn‘t exactly dead yet.  Contrary to reports that NBC has pulled the plug on the hour-long series based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Candace Bushnell, lead star Brooke Shields insists that‘s not necessarily the case.The show premiered on February 7 as a midseason replacement taking over ER‘s spot at 10/9c and was renewed for a second season shortly after the network announced it‘s Fall 2008 lineup.  The sophomore season kicked off on September 24 and one month later, NBC announced that the series would move to Fridays effective October 31.  Earlier this month, to the horror of many fans, rumors surfaced that NBC would cancel the show due to poor ratings, along with freshman drama My Own Worst Enemy.  That appears to still be the case for the Christian Slater drama but for Lipstick Jungle, there seems to be sparkle of hope. Read more »
There are conflicting reports whether NBC‘s Lipstick Jungle is really gone for good come January or not.  Previously, it was reported that along with freshman My Own Worst Enemy, it is facing cancellation after it finished filming the 13 episodes of its half-season order.  Now on its sophomore season, its maiden run which began February of this year reeled in 6.2 million viewers on the average, with its second season suffering a 27 percent drop ratings wise. Subsequent reports, meanwhile, suggest a glimmer of hope for Lipstick Jungle, as lead Brooke Shields insisted that it‘s not canceled contrary to early reports.  "They thought that because My Own Worst Enemy has been shut down that the same thing had happened to us, and it‘s not true," Shields said as quoted by US Weekly.  "They‘re not breaking down the sets.  We‘re still working. We still have more to do, so it‘s erroneously presented that we‘ve been canceled, thank God.  Our bosses are saying, ‘You‘re not canceled, don‘t worry.  We‘re just trying to figure out how to make this make sense.‘" Read more »
On the last episode of Lipstick Jungle, which aired the day after New Year‘s Day, Nico (Kim Raver) was discussing the risk of freezing her eggs unfertilized instead of picking a donor, in her prolonged and complicated quest for parenthood.  Meanwhile, Victory (Lindsay Price) helped Wendy (Brooke Shields) organize her living room so that she can work from home and be more organized. Also, Wendy found out that Shane was still considering going on tour with singer Natasha Bedingfield, putting a strain on their marriage. The biggest news of all, however, was that Victory proposed to Joe, who said yes.On tonight‘s episode of Lipstick Jungle, Wendy makes a daring bid on a very highly sought-after film, but can‘t bring herself to be that which apparently matters more, being a single parent, as Maddie goes off the rails in Shane‘s absence.  Nico, meanwhile, asks Dahlia to help boost her professional status, with a guest appearance on The Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda Kotb. Read more »
Actress Brooke Shields decided to transfer her elderly mother to a different nursing home after an upsetting incident involving a tabloid reporter.  Last Thursday, a journalist took out the actress‘ 75-year-old mom, Teri, from a senior living center in Old Tappan, New Jersey.  Later that day, she was found unharmed in a nearby restaurant talking to the two strangers.  Brooke Shields accused the National Enquirer reporter and photographer for misleading her mother, who suffers from dementia.  They signed the elderly lady out of the living facility and falsely claimed to be Teri‘s friend.  Read more »
Brian Austin Green did get some cold feet.  A week ago, it‘s as if he had that role snagged--negotiations for his inclusion on the upcoming season of One Tree Hill was all but done, apparently, and provided everything goes well, he‘ll take the role of Nathan‘s sports agent, Clayton.  The operative here is "provided everything goes well".  It didn‘t.Now, it‘s official--Green isn‘t joining the show.  But OTH producers have found a replacement pretty quickly: Lipstick Jungle‘s Robert Buckley. Read more »
The Saturday and Sunday Comic-Con schedules were released over the weekend. I thought things would get really good on Saturday, but the list is less than impressive. I suppose with four full days of Comic-Con, you can spread out the really big panels. Once again, below is a list of our picks for the day. Check it out and if you see anything missing, check the full list here.One thing I‘m curious about is the Chuck panel. Why is it at 10am? Doesn‘t Chuck deserve one of the better time slots? Wouldn‘t NBC push for a better panel time? Chuck already had some struggles last season, but this season promises to kick-ass and the new kung fu twist is perfect for the Comic-Con fans. I stand perplexed. Either way, it looks like I‘ll be spending my morning with a donut, cup of coffee and my favorite show Chuck.Check out our list of picks below. Check out the other schedules: Thursday Friday Sunday Read more »
