Lifetime is gearing up for their biopic based on the life of late actress Brittany Murphy. The movie will air on September 6th and will take fans from her childhood to adulthood and on through to her untimely passing in 2009.
Lifetime will debut “The Brittany Murphy Story,” a biopic based on the late actress’ life, on Sept. 6. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news about the first feature-length film about Murphy, who died at age 32. Amanda Fuller (“Last Man Standing”) has been cast as Murphy and Sherilyn Fenn (“Ray Donovan”) will play her mother, Sharon Murphy, who was not consulted for this movie and has not been involved with production.
According to THR, the two-hour made-for-TV movie will show Murphy’s young life as a child actress, her tragic death and the immediate aftermath. Murphy died on Dec. 20, 2009, and though her cause of death was called into question, the coroner ruled she died from pneumonia and other causes. Her husband Simon Monjack died five months later of the same causes.
Will you be tuning in to see the Brittany Murphy movie? Were you a fan of hers? My favorite role of hers was Tai from “Clueless” — she took the role and made it her own. What’s your favorite Brittany Murphy movie?

Oh, brother. Here we go again…
I get that Lindsay Lohan is a big fan of the music festival Coachella, but that doesn’t mean she should be putting ANYTHING before her big lying to the cops case! Still, the actress (if we can even call her that anymore) is putting some demands out there in terms of her case and her rehab! Says a source close to Lilo:
“Lindsay was adamant that she not be forced to go to rehab until after the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in the Palm Springs area on successive weekends in April. Lindsay LOVES going to the musical festival, and she’s determined to go this year. She didn’t want a little thing like rehab to get in her way of attending. Linds refused to sign off on any deal that would have prevented her from going to Coachella, period. Yes, it’s that important to her, for some strange reason.”
Geez. Just GO TO REHAB. Or hey, why don’t they just throw the girl in jail? Clearly, Lindsay doesn’t have her priorities in order or think she even needs any behavioral correcting. Seriously, I can’t believe she’s not in jail already!

And, she’s done it again!
Lindsay Lohan is a LUCKY little (troubled) lady! The actress just copped an 11th hour plea deal that will keep her for 90 days in lockdown rehab, but also out of jail! Says TMZ:
After a lot of haggling in chambers with offers and counteroffers, Lindsay pled no contest to the crimes of reckless driving and lying to cops. In addition to rehab, Lindsay will perform 30 days of community labor and undergo psychotherapy for 18 months — she’ll get credit for shrink time already completed.
FYI — there’s a mandatory 5 days in jail for reckless driving, but it’s going to be folded into the lockdown rehab so she won’t be behind bars even for a day. Lindsay will be able to do her rehab in NYC. She must stay clear of drugs and drug users. She must submit to drug testing.
She’s also admitted to a probation violation in the jewelry heist case, she was sentenced to 180 days in jail, but that sentence was STAYED and she won’t do time if she continues to obey all laws.
Lindsay already screwed up big time by showing up 48 minutes late to court after missing 2 commercial flights from NYC to L.A (guess even private jets can’t be depended on). What makes it even weirder? on her way into court someone through glitter at Lindsay. Wha?
Kind of appropriate, because as cray cray as Lindsay’s life gets, it’s always in the spotlight…

In an effort to improve her image before she goes back to court next month, US Weekly reports that Lindsay Lohan is in talks to mentor young athletes at a gym in Georgia.
Yep, that’s right.
The Liz & Dick star really wants to donate her time to Trinity Athletics, a gym where underprivileged girls can get scholarships to learn to tumble and cheer in Johns Creek, Georgia. Ideally, Lindsay wants to get her mentorship on before March 18, when she’s due in Judge Stephanie Sautnerí’s Santa Monica, California, court to face three charges…the most notably being lying to police!
Kourtney Calano, the founder of the Baby & I Foundation in Atlanta, tells omg:
She reached out to the actress’ team “about mentoring young girls at a nearby gym, where the owner has given a lot of her cheerleading hopefuls free grants to be able to cheer and follow their dreams, some even Olympic hopefuls. This is something that is still in the working stages, where Lindsay will be a possible mentor to these young girls for a day to uplift them and let them know she too has struggled and overcome so much adversity in life.”
Well, “overcoming adversity” is one way to put it. But Lilo isn’t flying out to Georgia just yet…
“We have yet to make any arrangements with Ms. Lohan about mentoring our girls,” Trinity Athletics owner Cori Davenport tells omg! “We are very busy at the moment on focusing on our upcoming NCA Nationals and that is our only focus presently. I believe everyone deserves a second chance, and everyone makes mistakes. I applaud Ms. Lohan for wanting to make a difference in people’s lives, especially young girls so they don’t take the same road she has.”
But does she really want to make a difference, or is this just a halfhearted attempt at cleaning up her image? C’mon.
