Jane Fonda Has a Chair with Ryan Gosling’s Face on It

AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute To Jane Fonda

Well it turns out that Jane Fonda has what every other girl and probably a lot of men want… a chair with Ryan Gosling’s face on it.  Amazing right?  But it turns out – the chair isn’t exactly hers.  While she was photographed carrying this gem of a seat – it was merely a prop for the first episode of her new Netflix original series, Grace and Frankie.  (See the picture and fabulous chair here).

You too can sit on Gosling’s face, for just over $400.  Well – you can join the waiting list to do so.  the chair was actually part of a limited-edition ‘Face Chairs’ sold on Gilt for $309 – but with an added $100 delivery fee.  It’s currently sold out… but we can dare to dream.

Grace and Frankie is a half-hour comedy that will star Fonda and Lily Tomlin as long time rivals whose husbands break the news that they are, in fact, in love with each other and plan to marry.  Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston play the lovers, and the show will also star Ethan Embry and Brooklyn Decker.  The series was created by Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris.  It sounds terribly entertaining.  But then again, I haven’t met a Netflix series I didn’t like.  Smart programming people…

Geena Davis to Appear on ‘Grey’s Anatomy!’

Hollywood Reporter's Women In Entertainment Breakfast

Academy Award winner, Geena Davis, has signed on for a ‘major guest arc’ on the 11th season of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy!  I cannot believe this show is still on BTW.  Don’t get me wrong- I used to love it- but I had to trim the fat on my DVR and, I must admit, it was one of the casualties – that I haven’t really even missed.

I digress.  The Thelma & Louise star will play a surgeon at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.  This gigantic casting move is likely a bit in response to the departure of ‘Dr. Cristina Yang,’ played by Sandra Oh, who left last season.

The season 11 premiere airs on September 25th.  I can’t believe Fall TV is upon us already.  Where did the summer go?

On a side note- Davis founded the Institute on Gender in Media – a research-based organization that works with media and entertainment to ‘engage, educate, and influence the need to dramatically improve, gender balance, reduce stereotyping and create diverse female characters in entertainment targeting children 11 and under.’  She was inspired after watching children’s entertainment with her own young daughter and realizing a huge dearth of female characters.

Pretty interesting no?

The Big Bang Theory Season 8 Delayed Over Contract Negotiations

The Big Bang Theory Season 8 Delayed Over Contract Negotiations

Contract negotiations have apparently delayed the eighth season of the wildly popular show “The Big Bang Theory” and you’ll never guess how much its stars are looking to rake in per episode!

The production for the eighth season has been delayed, but it is set to begin on CBS on September 22nd at 8PM EST. The show’s stars Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are reportedly all looking to get a raise — to the tune of earning a million per episode! ONE MILLION PER EPISODE.

Warner Brothers TV said, “Due to ongoing contract negotiations, production on The Big Bang Theory – which was originally scheduled to begin today (July 30) has been postponed.”

Chairman of Entertainment Nina Tassler said, “These deals manage to get done somehow miraculously year after year.”

She seems to be pretty confident that something will get worked out before the show is set to make its season eight premiere. Are you a “Big Bang Theory” fan?

‘The Situation’ is Heading to Anger Management

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino Launches His New Line For Couture Pop

Michael Sorrentino, former star of Jersey Shore and perhaps better known by his moniker ‘The Situation,’ was arrested and charged with assault earlier this month following a fight with his brother, Frank, at… the family’s tanning salon in New Jersey.  But of course.  Apparently Sorrentino and his family are filming a new reality show, The Sorrentinos, which will air on the TV Guide Network.  The premise is that the family is opening a tanning salon, as well as supporting ‘The Situation’ in his sobriety following his time in rehab a couple of years ago.

Anyway.  The court has ruled that Sorrentino must attend anger management classes and counseling – and if he completes these, his charges could be downgraded.  He spoke with People regarding the kerscuffle…

“I’m not perfect and neither is any family in the world.  I’ve been arguing and fighting with my little brothers since I was 6 or 7.  I work with my family, and I sort of live with them as well, so it gets a little tricky. There was a little discrepancy with work. … I was a little upset or maybe there was a miscommunication, and the next thing you know, it turns into something else, and then the next thing you know, I’m in jail with a broken hand.”

“No matter what happens, I love my family, and I’ve tried so hard to help them,” he said. “They know that. It’s tricky. People say, ‘Don’t get involved with business and family,’ but at the end of the day it’s the most rewarding thing you can do with your family.”

Well.  Looks like things are on the up and up there.
