Beaches: Idina Menzel Headlines Lifetime Remake of the Ultimate Chick Flick

Call them the wind beneath the wings of a new generation. This month, Idina Menzel of Glee and Frozen fame and House of Lies’ Nia Long step into the roles Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey made iconic in Beaches, 1988’s Oscar-nominated ode to female friendship, which gets a modern reboot on Lifetime. “I am a believer that what’s not broken doesn’t need to be fixed, but I have learned that there is a whole, young generation that has never seen Beaches,” Menzel says. “What a great opportunity to put a contemporary, multicultural spin on a classic theme about friendship. It’s […]

Vivica A. Fox Talks Vivica’s Black Magic and Her Favorite Part of the Male Body

The weather may be chilly, but Vivica A. Fox and Lifetime are heating up Wednesday nights with their new reality series, Vivica’s Black Magic, premiering Jan. 4. Fox is on the prowl for charismatic and steamy exotic dancers for an all-male revue. The actress reveals, “The goal of Vivica’s Black Magic is to create the ultimate girls’ night out that’s going to be full of fantasy [and] excellent dancing while watching Vivica be the head chick in charge.” After seeing another all-male dance show, and noting the lack of diversity among the dancers, Fox set out to create a troupe […]

5 Questions With Jacki Weaver of “Sister Cities” On Lifetime

Death is the launching point of the heartfelt, star-packed film Sister Cities which premieres Saturday on Lifetime, but its story is very much about how we choose to live our lives — and who we choose to let in or keep out. Originating as a critically acclaimed stage production penned by Colette Freedman (who adapted her own work for the film’s screenplay and spent time on set with the actors), Sister Cities follows four wildly disparate adult sisters, each with a different dad and named for a locale. There’s aspiring judge Carolina (Castle’s Stana Katic), sensitive author Austin (The Good Wife’s […]

When Does Dance Moms Return? And What’s With the Cats?

Neither fraud conviction nor Ziegler defection nor — well, we guess, much of anything — can keep Abby Lee Miller and her reality show off of Lifetime. Yes, people, Dance Moms will return for the second half of its sixth season on Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 9/8CT. Though Miller could be sentenced to up to 30 months in jail after pleading guilty to bankruptcy fraud (she learns her fate on Oct. 11), the show must apparently go on. No. Matter. What. And with star sisters Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler and their Abby-acolyte mom Melissa off to greener pastures, and hair-bow-loving spitfire — and frequent Miller target — […]

Devious Maids Season 4 Finale recap: Daddy’s Girl

I cannot believe that we’re already at the end of season 4 of Devious Maids! So much has happened this season, it’s hard to keep up! Now that Adrian knows Evelyn is jealous about him possibly being with her former friend, Gayle, he’s being oh-so-generous by agreeing to every one of Evelyn’s divorce demands — even when it comes to money.

After she confided in Marisol, Genevieve’s secret about […]

Devious Maids Season 4 Episode 6 recap: Crashes and burns …

On last week’s episode of Devious Maids, we discovered Kyle’s true identity. He’s working with Ben and “The Circle,” but that doesn’t stop Zoila from pursing her relationship with Kyle. Sure, they have to sneak around Kyle’s mom— also a member of “The Circle” — but Zoila seems okay with falling through the second story window onto a pile of leaves on the ground. For now. Ah, Carmen is finally turning the prime age of 40. Of course she doesn’t want to admit it. In fact, she thinks she’s so young that she takes one of Danni’s auditions. I guess since […]

Devious Maids Season 4 Episode 5 recap: Mother

Things took an unexpected turn on last week’s episode of Devious Maids when Spence suddenly collapsed in jail. Luckily he’s okay and in the hospital with Rosie by his side. The only problem is, he’s not exactly free like he thought he was. When the doctor comes in with the test results, he tells Spence that he’s going through withdrawals. Not from alcohol, but drugs. Spence said he wasn’t taking anything and that’s when Rosie jumps ahead and says it must’ve been Ben. That would be the perfect explanation to how Ben got Spence to confess to Peri’s murder. The […]

Devious Maids Season 4 Episode 4 recap: The Circle

As one relationship begins to crumble, another starts to bloom in this week’s episode of Devious Maids. Let’s get to the drama! Oh no they didn’t! Did I really just watch Jesse and Daniela during their first casual hook-up? I’m still hopeful that Jesse and Marisol will get back together. Doesn’t look like that’s happening any time soon. Danni was so excited to share the news about landing a singing showcase with Carmen…until her mother came from around the corner. Looks like Carmen also had a surprise to share with Danni. Danni’s mom came all the way out to California […]

Devious Maids Season 4 Episode 2 Recap: This means war

After last week’s Devious Maids Season 4 premiere, we were relieved when Spence knocked his head on the floor and regained all his memories of Rosie. We were just as shocked as Spence, after a night of too many drinks, woke up to find Peri’s dead body on the floor. While it’s unclear who killed Peri, it appears that someone is trying to frame Spence. • MORE DEVIOUS MAIDS SEASON 4 RECAPS: Episode 1 At six in the morning, Genevieve might not want to hear Rosie’s wonderful news about Spence calling her 15 times, but I know I do! Spence left Rosie a […]
