Television monarch Ryan Murphy has announced the third series he will create and oversee as part of his $300 million dollar deal with our favorite national pastime Netflix. Hurray for glamorous tales about the golden age of Hollywood ! (Actually, it’s probably going to be a dark, disturbing take on how sucky it was to be a part of Tinseltown back in the day and will probably end with Judy Garland’s overdose so maybe less “hurray!” and more “We better brace ourselves and not watch it immediately before bedtime because we’ll be laying awake all night trying to get images like the one of the former seemingly pleasant Darren Criss brutally and sadistically murdering an elderly former cast member of M*A*S*H out of our heads.”)
The long legal battle between Olivia de Havilland and FX/Ryan Murphy started last year when she clutched and crushed her pearls (RIP those pearls in the above picture) over Catherine Zeta-Jones’ portrayal of her in Feud: Bette and Joan. Olivia thought that Ryan and Co. made her look like a catty gossip, and she felt like it was putting a crack in her image. Olivia also denied ever calling her sister Joan Fontaine a “bitch.” She called her a “babe,” okay!? Olivia filed a lawsuit and after it was thrown out of court after court, it’s been thrown out of the highest court in the land. You might think this means that Olivia’s fight against FX is done, but I’m not so sure. Hell hath no fury like an old rich woman who both has all the time in the world and is running out of time. Lady Justice may have tied Olivia’s hands, but she still gonna git you, Murphy!
102-year-old Olivia de Havilland is Not The One, as Ryan Murphy has painfully come to find out. Olivia is not giving up her long fight against Ryan for what she claims is his totally bogus impersonation of her in Feud: Bette and Joan. Even though the California Supreme Court decided not to review her case against Ryan last July, Olivia is continuing to Vaseline up her knuckles and is not backing down in her protection of her pristine Hollywood image. Olivia and her legal team are taking her case to The Highest Court Of The Land.
If you’re the type of person who doesn’t watch TV shows on Amazon, then The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel might sound like a film about a magical British nanny starring Dame Judi Dench. But as of today, it’s the reason why the show’s creator Amy Sherman-Palladino hauled a giant sack of trophies out of the Emmys last night.
Queer mafia leader Ryan Murphy better get down on his knees and thank Gay Jesus, because his #1 star is returning to the show that made him great. Variety reports that, during the TCA summer press tour on Friday, American Horror Story’s second-in-command Sarah Paulson announced that Jessica Lange would be returning to the show for its eighth season, AHS: Apocalypse. She’ll be reprising her role as Season One’s nosy neighbor and grandmother of evil, Constance Langdon. So we won’t get the classic “knotty pinnnnneeee?!?!“, but we might get withering put-downs to ghost maids and burnt people. Good enough!
The category is: fierce renewal realness! The Sunday scaries haven’t been entirely that bad the last few weeks because Ryan Murphy’s Pose has been able to kick off the week with a lesson in shade, tucking, and vogueing…you don’t get that in any ol’ Real Housewives episode. OK, fine, maybe you do, but the show about 1980s New York ball culture has been a critical darling but ratings weren’t exactly American Horror Story. Nevertheless, FX has greenlit the show to werk werk werkkkk, hennies, into a second season. Continue reading
