Netflix is that selfish bitch at the Loehmann’s bridal sale who swipes every dress “just ‘cuz.” It’s bringing in movie actors to do streaming, and then it snatched away Shonda Rhimes from ABC. The streaming network has struck again, as it appears to have won over Ryan Murphy with the promise of free range on a host of projects. Just kidding, Netflix probably won him over by tossing $300 million at him. Continue reading
Streifans (or do they call themselves Barbrarians?) everywhere got verklempt in the loins today after Deadline reported that their god is possibly going to grace a Ryan Murphy show with her talent. Does that mean that Barbra Streisand is going to play herself in American Horror Story: Barbra Streisand’s Basement Mall? Or does it mean she’s going to play Jennifer Aniston in American Crime Story: The Time Harper’s Bazaar Put Jennifer Aniston In Streisand Drag. The answer is: neither. Barbra is “in talks” to do a brand new Ryan Murphy show for Netflix. Gwyneth Paltrow is also in talks to co-star. And now I’m picturing Barbra say, “Like buttah,” when Goopy asks her how her vagina feels after they get side-by-side coochie steaming during a break from filming.
According to Deadline, the family of Gianni Versace have released a statement denouncing Ryan Murphy’s latest scandal-based television offering. Needless to say, they won’t be throwing an The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story viewing party in their mansion when it premieres next week.
During the summer, Olivia de Havilland sued FX and Feud creator Ryan Murphy for using her likeness in the show without her permission. She also turned her nose up at Catherine Zeta-Jones’ portrayal of her. 101-year-old Olivia later asked a court to speed up the legal process because, well, she’s 101 years old and every minute counts. Ryan Murphy’s side argued that any depiction of Olivia was protected under First Amendment rights. They also argued that they didn’t have to contact her for her “side” of the story. Olivia has recently responded.
The new trailer for the upcoming season of Ryan Murphy’s true crime anthology, American Crime Story 2: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, is finally here. I have a feeling Donatella Versace‘s long skeletor finger has raked itself across Ryan’s face and warned him to “keep it classy, dahling”. I know she’s not supposed to be the star but Donatella is clearly the funnest character up in this bitch. And if you’re competing with Gina Gershon and Maya Rudolph in The Battle of The Network Donatellas, bleaching Penelope Cruz’s eyebrows, slapping a blond wig on her head and saying “presto chango!” does not a Donatella make. It makes a weird looking Penelope Cruz with a bizarro accent. She’s still basically Penelope Cruz but with itchy looking contacts and hasn’t she been through enough already?
Entertainment industry omnipresence Ryan Murphy (it’s just a matter of time before he cuts an album) didn’t have enough to do. The umpteen tv shows and movies he’s creating, producing, doing the costumes and catering on, etc. just wasn’t enough. Playbill reports that Murphy is teaming with Broadway producer David Stone to bring Mart Crowley’s gay dramedy Boys in the Band to Broadway next year. Joe Mantello will direct the play, which will run from April 30 to August 12, 2018.
Ryan’s gathered pretty much ALL of the gay dudes in his regular acting troupe to star. Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto and Andrew Rannels will all star. In other news, Sarah Paulson has filed a class action lawsuit against Ryan for violating her contract. She was assured she would appear in EVERY SINGLE ONE OF HIS PRODUCTIONS. You know she played Julia Roberts’ wheelchair in The Normal Heart, right? Continue reading
