Get Bella's Wedding Dress this Fall

Alfred Angelo has been named the exclusive and official licensed manufacturer of Bella’s bridal gown...

The gown will be a replica of the wedding dress worn by Kristen Stewart in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1. It will be priced in line with Alfred Angelo’s popular bridal collection, and available in sizes 0 to 30W to fit every Twilight bride.

I know a few people getting married this summer and fall that are probably begging their fiance's to reschedule the wedding in order to wear one of these ;) ha ha!

I predict it will be a major seller... I also predict, if I had the money I would buy one to just wear around.... I can see someone wearing it at the costume contest at Creation's Twilight Convention also.... oh the opportunities to wear this dress are endless and not just for your wedding ;) ha ha

Breaking Dawn Soundtrack Release Date: November 8, 2011

The Breaking Dawn Soundtrack will be released officially November 8, 2011.

I love listening to the soundtracks and placing the songs where I think they will go in the movie. I am usually pretty bad at guessing.

Last year I was lucky enough to be in LA and see the movie early. It was nice to be able to reveal the song placement in the movie to fans and if I have the chance to do that again this year I will.

We already know from the Breaking Dawn SDCC (Comic-Con) clip that this song ("Sister Rosetta" by Noisettes) is on the soundtrack as it is played as Bella gets ready for her first "night" with Edward on their honeymoon on Isle of Esme.

If you haven't heard it listen below:


Water for Elephants meets SYTYCD Top 8 thanks to Tyce Diorio

I love when my world's collide. That is, when different obsessions I have cross-over or meet in some weird way less than 6 degrees of separation, in which I can connect almost anything ha ha!

During the So You Think You Can Dance Top 8 Group routine a few weeks ago Tyce Diorio choreographed an amazing group routine using "Setting up the Circus" from the Water for Elephants sountrack.

The only thing missing was a kiss from Reese and Rob ;)

EW Magazine Cover - Breaking Dawn

This is the upcoming cover of EW's Breaking Dawn special Fall Movie Preview Double Issue.

Of course, if you look closely Kristen Stewart's eyes are blue and have not been adjustes to Bella Swan's brown. I imagine this is an overlook or a reflection of the blue water on her eyes.

See magazine details, including full interview HERE.

EW Magazine features Breaking Dawn

This is a transcript of the interview EW does with Bill Condon, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. It is pretty awesome and very funny. It really makes me look forward, not just to the movie coming out in November but to the DVD commentary!!! ha ha ha - Read on for some good information on filming Breaking Dawn as well as some good laughs!

“Auuuugh! This is sooo weird,” cries Kristen Stewart. It’s a sunny Thursday afternoon in San Diego, and the 21-year-old actress is tucked into a sofa beside Twilight Saga costar (and never-confirmed-but-obvious boyfriend) Robert Pattinson, 25. The actors, along with Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) — the director of the final two installments of the franchise, Breaking Dawn–Part 1 and 2 (in theaters Nov. 18, 2011, and November 2012) — are relaxing with coffee in a quiet hotel suite after a busy Comic-Con morning. Or at least they were till Entertainment Weekly started reading aloud from Stephenie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn, 2008 best-seller that’s the basis for the two movies. “It’s just so strange, I can’t get over it,” Stewart says of hearing the words she guesses she’s read “thousands” of times, now that production on both parts of Breaking Dawn has wrapped.

But if you want to talk strange, just consider what takes place in the upcoming movie: Bella and Edward’s long-awaited wedding and (even longer-awaited) passionate honeymoon consummation: Bella’s pregnancy with half-vampire baby, who grows at an accelerated rate and puts her life in danger; JAcob mysterious relationship with the unborn baby; and an entirely gruesome and bloody birth that results in Bella’s death (sorta). So we asked Condon, Stewart, and Pattinson to listen to the words that began it all, and to share their thoughts and feelings — no matter how weird they may be.

The Wedding

But I tore my eyes from the bowery canopy and searched across the rows of satin-draped chairs — blushing more deeply as I took in the crowd of faces all focused on me –until I found him at last, standing before an arch overflowing with more flowers, more gossamer.

Bill Condon: Kristen has this list. (Turns to Kristen) I don’t know if you highlighted things in the script or anything, but it was like, “These are the scenes I’m afraid of.”

Kristen Stewart: I didn’t highlight them, I just knew.

Condon: I never quite gotit. I had my own scenes I was afraid of — like how do you do a scene with 27 vampires in a room this big? — but the wedding wasn’t one of them. But then I understood it. It was that responsibility of being able to express everything that Bella feels.

Stewart: That whole part of the book is something that I read thousands of times. It was oddly emotional the first time I got to set and saw everything and everybody.

Robert Pattinson: Yeah, you were really sweet when you first showed up.

Stewart: Oh, shush.

Pattinson: I did my scenes first. And I was looking at you, and you kind of didn’t want anyone to see your face. It was funny, I could see her getting sort of emotionally affected by it and I almost didn’t want to stay at the end of the aisle. I wanted to go down and say, “Stop being ridiculous.” (Laughs)

Stewart: I wanted to run down the aisle. I was literally pulling away from Billy (Burke, who plays her father). Now it’s a trip to watch the wedding scenes especially. It was so volatile and emotional — I was being such a crazy person.


What had happened to me? I count make sense of the fluffy white snow that clung to my skin. I shook my head, and a cascade of white drifted out of my hair. I pinched one soft white bit between my fingers. It was a piece of down. “Why am I covered in feathers?”

Condon: What you just read follows them just starting to kiss in the water. Basically there’s a big fade-out in between.

But you decided to put in an actual sex scene.

Condon: Oh, yes.

Stewart: Imagine if you didn’t? Oh my goodness, no way. Of course we had to have that.

And the feathers, of course, are important because Edward rips the pillows apart in the heat of passion.

Pattinson: I wanted to have it as a line so much. (be an American/Edward accent) “I bit through all the pillows. Every. Single. One.” And then he’d start crying. By the way, that’s what he should be ashamed of in the morning. All those beautiful pillows! Egyptian cotton! (Laughs) “I ruined this bed!”

Bella Chooses Life

Edward had just called my little nudger a thing. He said Carlisle would get it out. “No,” I whispered. I’d gotten it wrong before. He didn’t care about the baby at all. He wanted to hurt him.

Pattinson: It shows a little negative part of Edward’s character. He deals with it in such a thoughtless way, and he lets his fear turn into anger. It was quite nice to play.

Condon: And one of your strongest moments in the movie, too.

Both characters suddenly act differently than they ever have before.

Pattinson: They shock each other. For a saga which is about eternal, undying love that nothing can touch, suddenly –

Stewart: There’s one thing that can. That was fun to play. Bella’s always liked him and liked everything he said and thought everything he did was right. This is something that she clearly disagrees with. She doesn’t mindlessly and blindly follow him. She was always kind of defiant. I like that.

Here is where the movie takes a darker turn, right?

Condon: Absolutely. You’re sort of desperate for it. Because you’ve got the wedding and the honeymoon, but there’s no conflict. Suddenly this happens, and Rob says, “Get that thing out of you.” All you have is one line, and that’s the rest of the movie. It’s right in that moment.

Jacob Watches Bella Drink

Bella shoved the straw between her lips, squeezed her eyes shut, and wrinkled her nose. I could hear the blood slopping around in the cup again as her hand shook. She sipped at it for a second, and then moaned quietly with her eyes still closed.

This is where Bella only wants to spend time with Jacob — because, as we later learn, her baby is already drawn to him.

Condon: It’s like watching Raiders of the Lost Ark and the snakes are coming and there’s no way to get out. How is she going to get out of this (love) triangle? It seemed impossible to figure out any way in which Jacob wouldn’t be the loser. And then this other idea comes in. It’s definitely weird, but it’s clever. He always loved that baby and the baby always loved him.

Stewart: I just get goose bumps!

Pattinson: I have to say, it is pretty creepy. (Laughs)Stewart: But that’s why I loved playing up those moments. I savor all those creepy bits. Like when Jacob sits down on the couch and is like, “Don’t look at me like that.” She can’t help it.

Pattinson: Oh! I didn’t even think about it the other way around as well (that the unborn baby is causing Bella to want to spend time with Jacob). Because I was like, What the f*** is this scene? This is insane. I would have broken up with you ages ago.

Stewart: Dude, don’t you remember you’re listening to us yell at each other (later)? Jacob says, “Didn’t you want me around all the time?” And I’m like, “Yeah,” and he says, “Aren’t those feelings gone now?” And I’m like, “Long gone.”

Pattinson: Ohhhhh, yeah.

Stewart: (Gesturing to Pattinson) He’s lying. He knows all of this, he’s forgotten it!

Pattinson: Oh, shush. (Laughs) Look, there are a lot of moments when Edward sort of acts like a p****. I mean, throughout the whole series.

Stewart: (Laughs) You can quote him on that.

Pattinson: I’m sitting next to you and I’m like, “My wife is dying. I have completely f***** my life up and hers,” and JAcob’s like (to Bella), “Hey, baby, you don’t look too bad to me.” And I’m just sitting there, like, with a bucket collecting (Bella’s) vomit.

Stewart: (Laughs) That’s literally what he’s doing.

Pattinson: That really wouldn’t happen. I should have thrown the vomit at him.

Stewart: Now that I’ve seen parts of it, Jacob and Bella’s chemistry in this movie is better than it’s ever been.

Pattinson: (Faux-glares at Stewart) So uncool.

Condon: The last scene we filmed was the dance scene between JAcob and Bella at the wedding. The last shot is Jacob leaving. I called “Cut!” and then Kristen yelled, “Jacob!” and hiked up her dress and started running after him into the woods, saying, “Come back! Don’t leave me!”

Pattinson: That was one of the funniest things as well, leading Bella (out to dance with Jacob). Edward is an incredibly strange character, the more I think about it. That was one of those things that I had absolutely no idea how to play.

Condon: But you played it great!

Stewart: (to Pattinson) You had all these stimulations! You were like, “I need to play it liked this and this and that’s it.”

You were looking out for Edward.

Pattinson: Yeah, ’cause I don’t want him to look like an idiot. There’s certain things…like when Jacob grabs her arms and won’t let go. And that’s at our wedding, before I’ve even danced with her! If that was reality, being a good man at that moment is going up and kicking the guy’s ass so hard that he won’t come back.

Stewart: If that had happened in this story it would feel so wrong.

Pattinson: Edward has a lot more foresight than the average person, which is one of the most heroic things about him. He also knows he’s going to turn her into a vampire, so it’s like, “You’re going to be screwed in a couple of weeks, buddy! Try and hit on her all you want!”

The End/The Beginning

The next sound jolted through me, un expected, terrifying. Like metal being shredded apart. The sound brought back the fight in the clearing so many months ago, the tearing sound of the newborn (vampires) being ripped apart. I glanced over to see Edward’s face pressed against the bulge. Vampire teeth — a surefire way to cut through vampire skin.

Pattinson: Yup, we did that.

Stewart: (to Condon) Did you put the sound effect in?

Condon: Yes.

Stewart: I can’t wait to listen for it.

Pattinson: That was a fun conversation that day with Stephenie (Meyer). Trying to figure out the mechanics: What am I actually chewing through?

Stewart: Oh, yeah, we had a whole conversation about that.

Was this birthing one you looked forward to shooting?

Condon: Yeah, it actually was. That was the real horror. Weren’t those couple of nights amazing? Everything about it felt so real. It gave everyone kind of a boost.

Stewart: It was like, We’re doing a f****** crazy movie, actually.

Pattinson: Especially ’cause that could have ended up being the most ridiculous scene. I remember going into it thinking, Oh, buy, this is going to be something.

Reality TV Update August 12, 2011

I was away for a few days camping, but spent today unpacking and catching up on this week's reality tv shows. This was my update on Monday including BB13, Bachelor Pad, Hells Kitchen, Masterchef and more.

Big Brother

Well since I have live feeds I do indeed blog regularily on updates. I always put the results under a link/cut so that no one sees spoilers unless they want to.

Everyone saw "America" voted Brendon back in *gag* I truly feel this is a CBS rigging. I have seen tweets from past houseguests who alluded to the manipulation of producers, and maybe it is my own bias, but I just can NOT believe that American voted BRENDON back in.... *shrugs*

Anyhow, he played Lawon, let's face it, ANYONE would beat Lawon, and now we have to endure Brenchel once more.

Due to live feeds I know who is new HoH and who that person nominates and I have to say it is all quite a shocker. Spoiler Post here

Hells Kitchen

I already did a recap and review of Monday's episode before I left, but today I watched Tuesday's episode and was fairly upset. I really liked Jonathan, but he fell apart and had to go. I was shocked to see Natalie beside him and at risk to be sent home. I really peg her as a finalist to behonest. I am so sick of the Elise vs. Carrie dramaz but it looks like it hits its breaking point next week based onthe previews. Let's hope!

For a full recap go here.


We are now down to the Final 4 after a devestating elimination Tuesday evening. I have to say, it has been between Christian, Jennifer and Adrien the past few weeks for me, but I absolutely love Ben and loathe Suzy. And even within those top 3, I think Christian is far too cocky and hate that his cooking is so good! I'd love to see Adrien or Jennifer win, but after tonight we know Ben will not as he was sent home, sadly. I will miss his smile and crazy printed chef hats, but I am ready to see what the final 4 can bring in this competition. Full recap here.

Challenge: Rivals

I did an entire post on this week's episode only because it was a lot of insanity in one show. They moved to Argentina, but not before a massive Toga party, then they fought, then they di d a helicopter awesome challenge, then they had to think individually - gasp! and in the end we didn't get to the challenge.... it was To Be Continued... I am rooting for CT and Adam, for once... want to know why? Read complete recap and lengthy review here.

Love in the Wild

I was so glad to see Skip and Theresa go. Of the remaning 6 people, 3 couples, they had the weakest connection it seemed. I really enjoyed the challenge of swimming and coins and so on, but what was best was the end. Of course now they have connections, no one is going to choose someone else, so they had a "newlywed" game style contest to see who knew their partners best. It was fun and I am so happy to see Mike and Sam along with Miles and Heather in the finals. I think both have a good connection but I am rooting for Miles and Heather simply because I think they have the BETTER connection and Mike and Sam have won everything so far! It's a cute show and I am excited to hear they will do a season 2!

Jersey Shore

I am always terrified and shocked by this show. They are in Italy, and Deena can't stay on her own two feet, she stumbles all over sober or drunk, she and PaulyD are besties somehow and want to hook-up without ruining the friendship like Vinnie and Snooki. The Situation is all interested in Snooks now, because they hooked up before the season and she has a "serious" boyfriend (who we know doesn't last) it is chaos. Meanwhile, Ronnie and Sammi are over and ok with it, until they are drunk then she is a blubbering whiney leech again. I am so over them - I have been - they are so unhealthy for each other, I kind of wish Sammi didn't even go to Italy to be honest. Drunk, Single ROnnie is hilarious. Sammi - drunk, sober, anywhich way, is a bore or an annoyance.


Well, I called it almost from day one. I favoured Mel and Marko, along with Ryan, all along. I was really impressed with the finale performance show as well as the results show / finale. I loved all the new routines and repeated favourites from the season. It was awesome to see everyone again on the show and re-live the fantastic season!

Some favourites include: Matt Flint, Nick Young and Jess LeProtto tap routine, Tadd and Joshua doind Lil C's routine, Melanie and Robert doing Stacey Tookeys routine, oh I could go on and on - it was just a great two-evening finale!

I am glad the season is over, because SYTYCD Canada is only at Top 12 and to be honest, seeing SYTYCD Monday, Tuesday (Canada) then Wednesday, Thursday (USA) was a tad exhausting. I found it really hard to switch gears between the two. I mean Canada's is shorter, especially since I fast-forward through Leah Miller and most of the judges, PLUS our results show is only a half-hour, no filler, just the facts.... but still - I enjoy SYTYCD so much I wish the seasons did not overlap. Luckily, they don't always.


I did my performance post of the Top 14 here. I only just watched the results show tonight and have done a post on that below (scroll down). Overall, I am ok with the results, but really, Carlena should have stayed a few more weeks at least. There were females weaker than her I would have prefered to see leave. Ah Well! I am rooting for Jordan and Joey at this point. Still.

I have posted a number of videos of some favourites this season on SYTYCD Canada and USA so scroll down to see them.

Here is my update from Monday Night's episodes:  Bachelor Pad, Hells Kitchen, Masterchef, and MORE!

#bb13 Update August 13, 2011

Here is info on nominations, PoV and suspicions on "the plan"


So TOnight's show will show Dani winning HoH and nominating *gasp* Adam and Shelly... this is a shock but I am glad to see it.

During PoV which will air Tuesday, there are many prizes:

Jordan wins a unitard that says "I am with stupid" (points up at self) and a dunce cap with a tu-tu. It's actually quite cute!

Kalia wins a Caribean vacation

Shelly wins a call home, but first 24 hours confinement in the Have-not bedroom.

Dani wins a veto card (pass to play in any veto comp she wants)

Jeff wins another $10k

Adam wins POV

Also, it seems (though live feeds do not show PoV comp) that Jeff TOOK the $ from Jordan leaving her with the unitard!!! I love JeJo and Jeff especially but live feeds are showing a different side of him that CBS edits out - CBS had me believing he was so perfect and he is NOT! I still love him.... just don't worship him - and deffo prefer Jordan!

Anyhow, it is clear Adam will remove himself frm the block and Dani has been hinting Brendon would go up - - - but I fear Jeff might. She is saying sending out Shelly - but who knows at this point what will happen.

What do you think of nominations? POV?

SYTYCD Season 8 - Some of my most favourite coupled dances

This season had some very memorable routines. Of course Melanie won, and had numerous amazing routintes this season, especially with Marko, but there were other memorable dances also.

For me, it is more about the choreographers. I love Sonya and Tice and Travis and Nappytabs and of course, Stacey Tookey but many others emerged this season with absolutely stunning routines!

From the start, Marko and Melanie were a stunning pair and had some very memorable routines.

Turn to Stone - Travis Wall
Mel & Marko

I Got U - Nappytabs
Mel & Marko

Skin & Bones - Dee Caspary
Mel & Marko

I could go on and on but there were other routines Melanie did without Marko that def. got her to be AMerica's favourite dancers.

Total Eclipse of the Heart - Mandy Moore
Mel & All_Star Neal

Game On - Sonya Teyah
Melanie & Sasha
It is CLEAR why these two ladies were our top 2 in the SYTYCD finale!

Sasha really was a shining star and I was glad to see her as 2nd place and not lower, as often it seems they do top male and top female which alludes to that being first and second placing.

This was the most stunning routine of Sasha with my fave Twitch

Misty Blue - Christopher Scott
Sasha & All-star Twitch

Fool of Me - Tyce Diorio
Sasha * All-Star Kent

One Night Stand / Memories - Nappytabs
Tadd & Jordan

Heavy in your arm - Sonya Teyah
Caitlynn and Marko

I could go on and on and on... but I want to do a different post on the amazing GROUP ROUTINES from this season!

SYTYCD Season 8 - Some of my most favourite GROUP routines

I have so many so I won't rank them, just list them....

The season kicked off with some awesome routines...

Top 20 - Sonya Teyah

10 Girls - Sonya Teyah (Geisha Routine)

10 Guys - Christopher Scott (Velocity)
I much prefered the 2nd round during the finale!

Top 8 - Tyce Diorio (Circus Routine)

Top 16 Group B - Dee Caspary (Posion & Wine)

There are so many more - but I will leave you with that

#bb13 Spoilers - Aug 12 - 9pm

If you do not want spoilers do not click below.

I have posted the new HoH (to be revealed on CBS Sunday's show) as well as who that person nominates and some circumstances surrounding the nomination - which was shocking!



So Dani won HoH and planned to put up Brenchel but in a strange turn of events, right before the nomination cermony discussed a different option and actually followed through with it....

The Nominees are:

SHELLY AND ADAM!!!!!!!!!!!!

ha ha


This is insanity!

What do you think???

Hells Kitchen - Tuesday August 9, 2011

I am late in this recap because I was camping. See Monday's episode details here.

This episode kicked off where Monday's ended, right after elimination.

Teams were asked to pick a team leader. The red team seemed to think Jennifer would be the best leader, while Carrie thought Carrie would be best. On the Blue team they were quick to decide Will would make the strongest leader.

Of course none of this mattered, because when they met with Chef Ramasay the next morning he asked who the worst leader would be and then Tommy and Carrie became the leaders for the challenge. Fantastic!

The task: re-work 5 comfort classics; Pizza, Cobb Salad, Chicken Noodle Soup, Spaghetti and a burger.

After very little leadership from Tommy and quite in-your-face leadership from Carrie the teams presentes their dishes to a mystery judge... Wolfgang Puck. This brought ooh's and ahh's and even tears to some wanna-be chef's faces!

Cobb Salad

Red Team - Elizabeth
Blue Team - Natalie

Natalie takes the point, even though she used Salmon to try and spice it up.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Red Team - Jennifer
Blue Team - Paul

Jennifer easily to this point


Red Team - Jaime
Blue Team - Tommy

Another point for the red team


Red Team - Elise
Blue Team - Will

Elise's was gross and Will's had nex tto no sauce and stuck together, no points awarded.

Red Team - Carrie
Blue Team - Jonathan

This was the kicker. Jonathan wanted to make the pizza his way but leader Tommy insisted it had to be with certain ingredients which Jonathan didn't know or want to use. In the long run he just did it and then refused to present it, wanting TOmmy to take it up. After Gordon Ramsay got mad Jonathan reluctantly brought it up. Carrie's dough was not cooked and Jonathan's had soupy sauce on top - no point awarded.

So out of 5 possible points, the Red Team won 2-1 - embarassing? Yes! But the red team celebrated anyways.

The ladies went to a comedy club while the men cleaned and prepped for Hell's Kitchen.... well.. not Jonathan who had a kink in his neck *boo hoo*

The comedian was pretty funny - she made fun of this feather fascinator Elise was wearing "did a bird fly into your head?" and also made Hell's Kitchen jokes:

"If I was in labour I'd want Ramsay in there.... 'GET OUT'... of course then the baby would pop out and he would say 'IT IS RAW' ha ha"

The ladies also won some cookware - they were pretty happy.

That night in Hell's kitchen pasta seemed to be troublesome for the cooks on both sides. The women, however, pulled together and were compared to a symphony.

Props to the Hell's Kitchen producers and sound guys who did a nice montage of the red kitchen cooking to symphony orchestra music, then the Blue kitchen in utter chaos.

Ramsay pulled Jonathan aside, he whined his neck hurt, well he said he had "limited mobility" to which Ramsay reminded him of two seasons ago when Dave broke his arm but came back to WIN....

Anyhow, after messing up and taking too long to serve the VIP table (Coast Guards) Ramsay was on his last nerve and the Blue team absolutely blew it!

In the end Elise actually pulled through on meat station which was especially busy and Blue lost sending the two from the appetizer station up, Natalie and Jonathan.

I liked them both, but after the performances it was clear Jonathan would be sent home... I was quite shocked to see Natalie even at risk to go home as I really see her with the potential to make it to the finals and possible win.

At this point I would say Will, Jaime or Natalie have the best shot, though Jennifer has her moments also, I feel because of her size and shape, it may be a challenge (she was sweating in the food when running tableside a few episodes ago) but we will see.

Master Chef Tuesday Aug 9, 2011 - Top 5 Show

Tonight we were down to the final 5. The myster box challenge had - - - ground meat. Gross!

Ben & Suzy both do Shephard's Pie's, cocky Christian attempts a chilli, while Adrien does 3 meatballs, 3 ways and Jennifer makes meatloaf.

Judges choose Jennifer, Adrien and Ben to taste, leaving Suzy and Christian, both who I dislike, to stand and watch!

Jennifer's meatloaf went over well as she had a good mix of meats, veggies, texture and taste. Adrien's 3 meatballs, 3 ways had the plating and idea of a win, but the taste was a let down as judges commented it was too salty. Finally, Ben's Shephard's pie gave him the win and he went back to make some decisions for the elimination challenge.

Judges said that the contestents would recreate a well known, prestigious chef's signature dishes and I figured it would be Wolfgang Puck again since he was on Hell's Kitchen.....

They introduced... Chef Ramsay - wah wah wah.... it was cute and funny he introduced himself to Ben ha ha!

The three dishes to choose from were Pan Roasted Filet of Halibut with Crab, Roasted Duck Breast or Roasted loin of venison. Ben chose venison and was able to ask three questions. He essentially got details on the beet/red cabbage, the parsnip puree technique/dairy component and the cooking method of the venison. A HUGE advantage!

During the challenge I hoped Christian would go home, sense Suzy would since she had not only never cooked venison, but never tasted it either!

In the end, Suzy's was the best and she was immediately safe. Christian's had a few errors, monstly in his attitude as always. Jennifer copied some of Ben's techniques thinking he had the trade secrets, but it cause a few errors in her replica of Chef Ramsay's signature dish. Ben's was overcooked despite his advantage in the challenge and ultimately he was the one sent home.

I ADMIT IT, I cried... I love Ben... did I think he would win? No, but I hoped he would go further. Sadly it is a cooking show not a personality show otherwise Christian and Suzy would be LONG GONE and Ben winning it all.

He did get hugs from judges and told Adrien to go all the way and win it.

Top 4 - Suzy, Christian, Jennifer and Adrien. I would be happy with either Adrien or Jennifer, but I just do not like Christian or Suzy, despite their skills in the kitchen - they just are too cocky and arrogant!

Challenge Rivals - The Mob has to think individually....

I felt like this week's episode was like a bad acid trip. The happenings, the camera angles, the music, the editing... it was insanity from the realization they were going to Argentina, to the toga party, to the whippings, to the trip to Argentina, to the wrestling and room trashing and finally the soda pop fighting... it was all very immature and trippy and just WTF. The lines in the sand have really been drawn and while the helicopter challenge was awesome, it all ended very quickly.

Basically one partner was hanging from the 'copter while another climbed a rope (women actually climbed a rope ladder, but whatever) Evelyn killed it, as always and on the men's side, rookies Mike and Leroy actually killed it saving themselves from the "jungle" t andamongst themselves who would f had to vdecide amongst themselves who would f had to vdecide amongst themselves who would face CT in "the jungle" BUT host |TJ has a further surprise, they had to pick the team - on the spot - then and there.

See the mob on this show can't wipe their butt's without checking with Kenny and Wes, so this put everyone in a tough spot - they had *gasp* THINK FOR THEMSELVES! In the end Tyler and Johnny were chosen and Tyler startes to go cray-cray which showed his fear for the CT rematch. Worst part of this episode was it ended with a To Be Continues... I hate that crap! So next week Johnny and Tyler take on Adam and CT in what seems by the previews to be a running rock shoving challenge of some sort? I am rooting for CT and Adam this time!

The end of the show had them in a club, the mob had decided to make Adam lose his confidence and throw him off his game so they were harassing him... CT intervened and it looked like a fight was ready to break out....

Also earlier in the episode Cara Maria was the brunt of everyone's joke again. With Pop all over her white dress after Wes purposely dumped a bottle on her she was in tears, Laurel came out to back her up, attacking Paula who was in tears, Tyler came to stick up for her, which is why he was especially burned when Paula stayed silent allowing her partner Evelyn to vote for he and Johnny to go against CT and Adam... oh the dramaz.

Can't wait to see next week - - -

W Magazine features Kristen Stewart - Interview, Photos, Video

W Magazine featured Kristen Stewart and includes some amazing photos of her as well as a great interview. I've put the transcript of the interview below the cut and a video of bits and pieces ofthe interview below.

September 2011

Lynn Hirschberg: Everyone knows you as Bella Swan, the heroine of the Twilight series, whose penultimate installment, Breaking Dawn Part 1, premieres on November 18. What audiences may not know is that you’ve been acting since you were a child. How did you get your start?

Kristen Stewart: It’s weird, because I would be the last person in my school to be in plays, but I was forced to sing a song in a school thing. I sang a dreidl song, which is funny for me. I’ve never celebrated Hanukkah—it wasn’t in my upbringing, but it was one of those deals where everybody has to pick a song or participate somehow in the chorus. It wasn’t the normal dreidl song; I can’t really remember the words, but it was a more serious dreidl song. The dreidl was huge, it was really honored. And that’s how I met my agent, who was in the audience. I was eight. I was nine when I did my first movie, The Safety of Objects.

Did you do any commercials, or did you go straight into films?

I did two commercials, one for Porsche, but I was definitely not the type of child one would cast in a commercial or any TV that you’d typically go out for as a young kid. I wasn’t the type of kid who would be in stuff that kids watch. I wasn’t cutesy.

In 1999 David Fincher cast you as Jodie Foster’s daughter in Panic Room. He likes to do dozens of takes for each scene. Was that difficult, as a child?
I didn’t realize that 80 takes wasn’t normal. But it’s funny: Some of my proudest moments from film sets are in Panic Room. My character had seizures. Just being able to say, I was 10 years old and I broke all the blood vessels in my eye on that take, is cool. It was fun.

You had a tomboy quality, which was unusual.
I have brothers, and that so-called boyish quality was something that I was deathly self-conscious about when I was younger. I was, like, No, I’m a girl. Actually, I’m still embarrassed to say that.

But it sets you apart from other young actresses. And it made you more interesting.
I don’t really know what to say. I just knew I wanted to work. And I did. I was working when I read the script for Twilight. I read the script before I read the book. I actually did the audition before reading the book, which was kind of crazy. Obviously, I tore all four books apart over the course of three years, but initially I had no idea that Twilight was such a big deal.

Did you have a particular interest in vampires? All young girls like vampires.
I f****** love me a vampire [Laughs]. I was 17 when I read Twilight, and at the time it was so perfect for me. The script was about young kids who think they can handle stuff that they just can’t. And they’re going to do it anyway. Because, why not? Just torture yourself. I relate to that. Vampires are a little dangerous—and we girls like to test ourselves.

In Breaking Dawn, Bella and Edward, her beloved vampire, get married. What was the wedding like?
Awesome. This was my first wedding. It was insane. And odd. The wedding dress experience was a huge deal. I tried on one version of the dress, and it was like tweak and tweak and alter and tweak and change, and then it’s done. BFD dress. Huge deal.

How was the actual wedding?
It was major. The last Twilight book is filled with BFDs, things that people have been waiting for for so long. For me, it was ridiculously dramatic: I get married, give birth, the baby has an incredibly accelerated growth rate we’re all very concerned about, and I say goodbye to my dad for the last time ever. It was all big—I could never go, Whew, I’m losing this character.

Did you finally say goodbye to Bella in some meaningful way? You’ve been living with her for a long time.
I’d been anticipating that end-of-Bella moment. I was going, Oh, my God—I wonder how I’m going to feel. And the last scene of the shoot was at the wedding. Every single character was there on set. At the end of that day, I was kind of whacked. And so I never really had that moment then. Instead, it happened later. We needed to film one more sort of honeymoon scene and we went to the Virgin Islands. After that scene, my true final scene, I felt like I could shoot up into the night sky and every pore of my body would shoot light. I felt lighter than I’ve ever felt in my life.

Twilight was your college, and you graduated, in a way: You became Bella Swan at 17, and now you’re 21.
Yeah—and that time has been sort of nuts for me. In film, I have chronicled every stage of my life since I was nine. And it’s more intense now, obviously, because I’m not in control of it anymore.

You’re not in charge of your life?

No. Not really. Not if I want to think solely about what I really like to do. It’s a funny thing: You want so badly for people to see what you do—you’re proud of it—and I like the effect that movies have on people. But the attention can also make me uncomfortable. In certain situations, people say to me, “C’mon, what’s wrong with you?” I apologize. I love what I’m doing, but I’m a little uncomfortable.

Do you like watching yourself?
It’s not like I sit around watching my movies again and again, but I’ve never quite believed actors when they say they don’t watch themselves. I hear them going around the block to make excuses for why they don’t watch their work. It’s b*******. Sorry, guys—I know you watch your stuff.

It must be interesting to watch your younger self in movies. Very few people have such an extensive visual record of themselves at so many ages.
I get embarrassed. It’s weird, too: I’m 10 years old in Panic Room, and that’s a version of myself that’s pretty far away, but it doesn’t feel that far away to me. Occasionally my dad will flip the TV on, and it’s cool to look at some movie that I’m in for one second. And then, “Dude, off. Now. Like, cut it out.”

NY Metro talks Breaking Dawn re-writes with Robert Pattinson

"I bit through all the pillows. Every. Single. One"


Twilight Saga Wolf, Kiowa Gordon arrested on alcohol and drug related charges

I was camping when I got the tweet from a friend about Kiowa |Gordon's arrest. I wasn't entirely shocked, which is why she sent it to me, we had just had a conversation about him and Bronson a few days earlier.

Anyhow, Kiowa has been released.

August 11, 2011

Twilight actor Kiowa Gordon has been released from an Arizona jail after being arrested for having outstanding warrants.

The Arizona Republic reports the 21-year-old actor posted $1,000 bail to get out of Maricopa County jail on Wednesday. Gordon was arrested Monday after a routine license plate check turned up previous warrants for failure to appear in Phoenix area courts on a misdemeanor drunken driving and drug charge.

The Native American actor grew up in Arizona and is a member of the Hualapai tribe.

Gordon played Wolf Pack member Embry Call in the highly successful Twilight vampire movie series.

I am actually more shocked it was Kiowa in trouble than if it had been another wolf pack member, Bronson for example. Bronson seems to be the wild one, he had the bathroom incident at a convention and has been seen pretty intoxicated in the past. Kiowa, on the otherhand, less so. Though certainly not innocent!

Also, Kiowa was cast because he went to church with Stephenie Meyer correct? Maybe I am making judgements here but usally them church folk don't go up and get arrested for drug and alcohol related charges" Just Sayin'

Breaking Dawn Set Photos - After the Fact

So this weekend my friend came up from Portland Oregon to visit and to show her friend and her friend's daughter around some of the Twilight sets from New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn.

This may be a shocker, but I actually had NOT been up to Squamish sets from Breaking Dawn (in fact, I have not been up to Squamish or Whistler in over 10 years!) So the 4 of us drove up to explore.

Based on information from friends who had been there we were able to go the cliffs where vampire Bella climbs while hunting, as well as the land where the re-built Cullen house once stood, which is right beside the spot where the wedding was held.. in fact there are still some telling landmarks months after filming has wrapped.

First up, let's look at photos of the wedding scene... can see in the trailer certain landmarks from filming such as the burned out tree to the left of Robert Pattinson, the bumps in the ground (2 of them) just behind Rob's feet and the other trees located in the photos. Of course the trailer also features dozens of additional trees, flowers, props and people for the wedding.

What was interesting was that the wedding literally took place in the "Cullen's back yard" as far as location goes. (Unlike, for example, New Moon, where Edward breaks up with Bella in North Vancouver, but she is found in Langley ha ha)

Also, as you can see in the top left of the photo, the river was right there - and beautiful!

I have pointed out noticable parts in my photos as well as screencaps from the trailer...

Here are some of my photos from our adventures...

And in the trailer you can see the same burned tree that is darkened as well as the same bump in the ground.

Here are some more photos from the same spot:

Now if you were Robert Pattinson, this is what you would be looking at (plus props, set dressing and beautiful Kristen Stewart as Bella walking down towards you).....

You may remember photos of when the Cullen House was still built there for filming. Here is a comparison of the previous Cullen house next to the Breaking Dawn Cullen House which Twifans helicoptered over in April 2011. You can see the driveway clearly, which is all that remains of the Cullen house now. Of course those bits of wood were once the beautiful Cullen House Replica seen in TwiFans photo Here:

And here is the drive way now....

We also went to some other locations used for filming....

Here are some photos from the rock cliffs they filmed Breaking Dawn scenes at. These were not in the trailer, so we will have to wait to see Vampire Bella climbing them to hunt.

For now, Bella Doll takes a hike ;)

Actually my friend took a lot of HILARIOUS photos with the Twilight dolls - I shall do a post on just those at some point as they are pretty entertaining ;)

Lastly, we had some fun in the woods.... re-enacting a favourite scene or two, most are on facebook but for now here is one to keep you entertained...

I posted more photos On my facebook account so feel free to add me there and take a look!

There are more of where the Cullen house was, even a bench that may have been used for guests at the wedding (speculating here, it was a random bench sitting there - shrugs) as well as more cliffs and river photos. We also stopped by Shannon Falls, which was not used in filming, but is still a very pretty site.

Overall, it was interesting to see the sets and what has changed. I do not regret not going during filming, I had met the cast and seen the sets of New Moon and Eclipse. But, it would have been a treat to see these sets with the set decorations and props in place!

Hope you enjoy these photos - you are welcome to share them just please do not remove tags and be polite in crediting this site/link back. Thanks


PS - To see some other photos taken a few weeks before I went check out my bloggy-buddy TwiCrackAddict's post here. She has some similar photos but with even more cool stuff like fake rocks, a garden outline and more! Sadly, those things were all gone when I went this past weekend! Still super cool! Enjoy!

Reality TV Update August 8, 2011

I am doing this early this week because I am going camping until Friday and won't get to see all the wonderful reality tv episodes this week until then.

I made up for it tonight though... I watched Hells Kitchen, Bachelor Pad 2 Premiere, Masterchef and SYTYCD Canada Top 4 Results. Yes, all in one night after running errands all day and packing all night. I am an insomniac, multi-taker and clearly crazy!

But, let's move onto reality tv tonight shall we?

Bachelor Pad

Finally, season 2 premiered tonight and it did NOT disappoint. We have the Vienna, Kasey, Jake triangle, the ex-engaged couple, previous hookups, haters, and overall a lot of drama. Jake and Jackie won the first challenge and stupidly gave the 3rd rose to Vienna as a peace offering. The crazy bitch didn't care and the women almost sent out Vienna's boyfriend Kasey. I almost feel bad for Kasey to be honest, Vienna is so mean to him! In the end it was Canadian wrestler, Rated-R Superstar who went home along with Ali. The two were flip-flopping "sides" and sent packing. It looks like a great season of drama.

See cast list here and also what they are most memorable from in their previous season(s)

SYTYD Canada

The top 14 performed. It wasn't the best I have seen this season but I did a recap and power rankings here if you wish to read details. I am still team Jordan and Joey!

Hells Kitchen

There was the ongoing drama of Carrie & Elise. Did you notice Elise has a tattoo on her chest... it says "Elise" *eye roll* I dislike her greatly, but realize she stays for entertainment value only. Even Jamie and her had it out tonight! There was a cool challenge in the first half of the episode where they made food using beer, mmmm, my husband enjoyed that part! Dinner Service had drama as always but in the end it was Krupa who went home.


This episode felt like Hells Kitchen as contestents were in the kitchen at Patina serving guests. Red Team was Ben & Christian led by team leader Suzy. Blue team was Adrian & Jennifer led by team captain Tracy. Ramsay ran the kitchen and it truly felt like Hells Kitchen final 6. Red struggled in the start but pulled together after switching Ben to a different station. In the end it was the Blue team sent to the pressure test where they had a king salmon to scale, fillet, portion and cook to perfection.

Tracy, Adrian and Jennifer began the pressure test after watching the master Chef Ramsay do it with such ease, they were in for an eye-opener when they actually attempted it.

Adrian took a long time to scale the fish and his portions were not perfect. Tracy left a lot on the bones and much of the tail. Jennifer did an excellent job portioning and had next to no waste but a few scales remainging.

As far as cooking Jennifers was slightly undercooked, Adrian's over cooked and Tracy's was undercooked.

In the end Tracy went home.


Sunday's Show announced Kalia's nominations, Jeff and Rachel. Of course since then the Power of Veto has been played, won and possibly used? If you want to know more read my spoiler post from this morning

Well, that's it for me this week. Check back Friday for the rst of this week in Reality TV Fun!

SYTYCD Canada Top 14 Perform

Tonight was another great night of dancing on So You Think You Can Dance Canada. The Top 14 danced for Canada's votes and tomorrow we will send two more home.

Tonight's judges were Jean-Marc Genereux, Tré Armstrong, Rex Harrington, Melissa Williams and Dan Karaty.

Once again the couples were swapped up, which seems to be a weekly thing now, however, it seemed more couples had at least one dancer in their genre. I like the switch up because it moves the votes around a bit more, but it is also scary because it puts certain dancers in danger undeservingly perhaps. Tonight's dances left me a little disappointed overall... but I will talk about that more at the end of this post...

Anyhow, here is a summary of the night:


Francois & Jordan
Samba - Gustavo Vargas
"Chillando Goma" - Fulanito

Francois was in his genre, Jordan was way out, but you wouldn't know it (unless you watched her feet carefully ha!) There were a lot of cool twists, spins and lifts. Gustavo warned it was about hips, hair and legs - and he was right! It was sexy and fun!

Joey & Geisha
Contemporary - Stacey Tookey
"Gasoline Rainbows" - Amy Kuney

The idea was that Geisha comes from the polluted future to warn Joey and encourage him to protect the environment. To me, the story was not really told, but the dance itself was beautiful as was the song. This was good for Geisha, who I feel is not as strong as the other female dancers. She was paired with the most amazing Joey and pulled it off, though he was still the star of the routine.

Yulia & JP
Hip Hop - ShoTyme
"Give 'em what they asking for" - Busta

This was so-so for me. JP was starting to grow on me, and this being his genre I expected a lot more. Yulia, as I have always said, is a ballroom girl and generally excells in her genre and never really peaks in anything else.

Lindsey & Christian
Jazz Funk - Blake McGrath
"Blow" - Ke$ha

This was a couple reuniting again this season not only with each other but with Blake as choreographer who worked with them week two. Given that, I think I expect a bit more since they have that history together. The story was a couple who has to choose love or career. For me it was weird. It didn't feel Jazz-Funk (though who am I to judge what that even is exactly, I expect it from Sonya or Sean Cheesman usually) and was just a bit strange. I don't know if it was the choreo or the execution. I typically love Blake and I really love Lindsey, but this was just so-so for me.

Denitsa & Matt
Cha Cha - Francis LaFreniere & Claudia Primeau
"Give me Everything" - Pitbull ft Ne-Yo

It was nice to see alumni Claudia and Francis back to do choreography again. This routine had a lot of potential but fell flat in some areas. First, Denitsa was in her element and did well and Matt did his best but there were some technical errors that even my husband noticed. The most obvious was near the end when Matt went to grab for al ift too soon then stopped, then when they did the lift he slipped and they kind of fell forward. We have seen this before, it is part of life, but coming off an average performance, it puts a damper on the whole thing. Also there was far too much time spent in a slow embrace when there could have been dancing, and right in the middle of the routine.

Carlena & Shane
Contemporary - Sabrina Matthews
"Wise Up" - Aimee Mann

This was about being unable to take back words once you say them, as if that can be portrayed clearly in a routine? It was pretty slow moving and as far as Sabrina Matthews goes, it wasn't my favourite.

Adam & Melissa
Hip Hop - Luther Brown
"Buyou" - Keri Hilson

Well, Melissa has had four consecutive standing ovations from all the judges, whoever they may be that week, with whoever she may be dancing with that evening. Amazing! It was a fun, sexy, hard-hitting routine that was my favourite of the night and being last of the night will be memorable and likely get them plenty of votes to stay safe.

Power Rankings:

Top 3:

-Adam & Melissa
-Joey & Geisha
-Francois & Jordan


-Carlena & Shane

Bottom 3:

-Lindsey & Christian
-Denitsa & Matt
-Yulia & JP

I was really off last week, so we will see how it goes this week. To be honest, I was a tad disappointed overall this week with the routines. They weren't as impressive as past weeks. I feel like based on JUST tonight's dances, many would risk going home. Though, some of it may have been choreography, and maybe my own mood, but I just didn't feel it tonight as much as I usually do.

Anyhow, please comment below if you agree or disagree or have something to add....

Results Show is Tomorrow Night, I will be away camping I won't post until I return Friday evening.

Also tomorrow on the results show Melissa Williams' group routine is about relationships and rumours. Host Leah Miller reminded us a trillion times to tune in....

I am away camping so I will get the results up on the weekend!

Catching Fire coming to theatres November 22, 2013

Lionsgate tweeted the release date of the next Hunger Games movie, based on book 2 in the series: Catching Fire. The movie will hit theatres November 22, 2013.

The first movie is still being filmed in North Carolina and is scheduled to release March 23, 2012. Last week they filmed the interviews and scenes from the capitol.

Here are the latest stills from The Hunger Games.

Now we can officially start (or continue) our casting guesses for the movie.


BB13 Updates August 8



We know Jeff won POV and was going to use it on himself... we had NO IDEA what Kalia would do - - and neither did Kalia... after a crazy night of "what if's" today Kalia put Lawon on the block next to Rachel.

It was such a crazy night of ideas and possible outcomes.... Lawon volunteered himself (again) and ended up going up thinking he is 100% safe.

To be honest, He is not!

Especially with this twist of someone being evicted but returning, they figure a "floater" would be less harmful/angry if they left and came back.

Little do they know the evicted house guest will battle who ever America votes back in and who ever wins THAT returns... oh I am hoping for drama.

I did want Dom or Cassi but now, if Lawon leaves, I think Brendon would bemost entertaining ha ha....

time will tell

I am away this week so I won't get live feeds or see Wed or Thurs show until Friday... I will of course still be on twitter and checking fan sites for minute-to-minute (ok, I am camping, let's say hour by hour or at least twice a day) updates on house happenings ;)

***MORE AFTER THE SHOW*** I will tweet during the show

True Blood's Russell Edgington to return?

You know a cement tomb won't kill a vampire, it will only hold him... and for Russell Edgington, that holding cell can't last forever... can it?

It seems Russell's return will happen in Season 5, but in a way that may surprise viewers... after so long in his tomb, alone, thinking, mourning... (remember between season 3 and 4 a whole year lapsed... by season5 who knows how much time Russell will have been left to stew) ... Russell will come back a new man... but what kind of changed man will he be? Will it be for the better or worse? Only one man (ok the team of writers and one man) know for sure... Alan Ball discusses the return of Denis O'Hare's character with access hollywood:

“True Blood” creator Alan Ball has said he’d like to bring Russell Edgington back to Bon Temps in Season 5, but Denis O’Hare expects a different sort of former Mississippi vampire king when his ancient character returns.

“The trick is — and these guys are better at it than I am — but the trick is to reinvent [Russell], because he can’t come back and be the same guy,” Denis told Access Hollywood on Saturday. “He’s gotta come back transformed in some way and in a surprising way and I look forward to whatever they’re choosing to do with him.”

Denis, who stars in Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s “American Horror Story” on FX, which premieres on Oct. 5, said it’s all in the “True Blood” writers’ hands regarding his return to the HBO show. But, when asked if he, personally, expects Russell to come back from his cased-in-concrete Season 3 ending, bent on avenging the staking death of his longtime love Talbot, Denis said he thinks his character would return with a much more surprising set of motives.


“The thing I love about him is his dreams aren’t petty. He’s never motivated by anything petty, so I can’t imagine if he came back he’d be motivated by simple revenge,” Denis said. “I think he’s always out for something bigger. “

While Talbot’s true death occurred after he was staked by Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard), Denis said Russell’s experience across the centuries is likely to make his return more complex.

“There are dreams that are bigger than that, there are ambitions bigger than that. And he’s been alive 2,800 years, he was with Talbot for 700 years. Not to say that it was only a short period of time, but he’ll do his grieving and he’ll move on,” Denis noted.

So perhaps a turn in politics then?

“Politics sounds great,” he smiled.
