Vanessa Hudgens, Julianne Hough to Star in Grease Live on FOX

'Gimme Shelter' Paris Premiere

Move over Stockard Channing and Olivia Newton John!

Fox announced that Julianne Hough (“Dancing with the Stars”) will play Sandy, and Vanessa Hudgens (“High School Musical”) has been cast as Rizzo in Fox’s upcoming “Grease Live.”

“Grease: Live,” will air live on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016, and will be based on the original musical “Grease” by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey and Paramount Pictures’ 1978 feature adaptation. It will be a Paramount Television production. Here are some reactions to the news:

“‘Grease’ is one of the most treasured and favored pop culture phenomenons of our time,” said Platt. “It’s fun, it’s endearing, and we are so excited to reimagine this iconic story with a shared entertainment event suited for today’s audience.”

“‘Grease’ is one of the movies that made me want to be an entertainer, and I have literally been waiting my whole life to play Sandy,” said Hough.

“Being Rizzo is something I’ve never imagined, and I love that because it will be a new challenge,” added Hudgens. “I cannot wait to bring her to life on live television. I’m going to be a Pink Lady!”

Vanessa Hudgens’ Stalker Is A Nice Guy

Vanessa Hudgens' Stalker Is A Nice Guy

Vanessa Hudgens was once scared of the stalker who traveled from Africa to Los Angeles to marry her, but now her people have determined that he’s just a nice guy with different customs.

Junior Kabongo sent Vanessa a bunch of emails, including, “I love you and wanna marry you. I WRITE SCREENPLAYS. I wanna become a movie star.” He also said, “God gave me a penis to make you feel like you never did everytime when we’ll make love.”

Kabongo caused enough alarm to get the attention of LAPD detectives, who went out to serve him with the temporary restraining order.

Now the big turn. We’ve learned the cops thought he was a decent guy. We’re told Kabongo was “extremely apologetic,” saying he was from another culture and had no idea he was being harassing or annoying.

So our law enforcement sources tell us the cops went to Shawn Holley and debriefed her. Holley had a decision to make — a hearing was scheduled Thursday to make the restraining order permanent.

We’re told Holley ended up calling Kabongo and reached the same conclusions as the LAPD. She got him to sign an out-of-court binding agreement promising he’d leave Vanessa alone, or else.

Strange, no? A stalker case that doesn’t land someone in jail….

Vanessa Hudgens Granted Restraining Order Against Stalker

'Gimme Shelter' Paris Premiere

Vanessa Hudgens must be breathing a sigh of relief…The star has been granted a restraining order against screenwriter and creepy dude Junior Kabongo, a stalker that traveled from Africa to Los Angeles in order to try and marry her.

According to Perezhilton, Kabongo sent Vanessa email after email professing his love in a very inappropriate and explicit way…For example:

“I love you and wanna marry you. I WRITE SCREENPLAYS. I wanna become a movie star.”

After sending these emails, he was seen on November 1 and 4 driving up and down Vanessa’s street, so she and her lawyer, Shawn Holley, applied for the restraining order. Of course, it was GRANTED. Now, this crazy is forced to stay 100 yards clear of the actress, her little sister, and her hot boyfriend, Austin Butler.

Keep safe, girl.
