AHS Season 2 Teaser Trailer

Someone on facebook wrote:

I read that Jessica Lange let a little out about her character, she's a nun that works at the asylum. She became a nun late in life, was a lounge singer/dancer before. The asylum was a hospital for, I think, TB patients after that it turned into a hospital for the criminal insane. So you can get a few ideas from clue1, I think, knowing a little about it.

We really know very little about this season, they weren't even at COmic-Con :( I am excited about the casting.

#bb14 HoH, Nominations and more...


Shane is Hoh.

Brit won safety this week.

Boogie won $10k

Shane nominated Frank and Boogie.

Brit and Shane are fighting, she feels he threw her under the bus, I missed what happened, maybe in his nomination speech?

Franka nd Boogie are mad at Brit and Shane, so much for Silent 6 alliance. Dan is also involved in the drama. I think Shane's speech implied Dan and Brit urged the nominations and / or implied they told Shane Boogie/Frank were coming after him....

Either way it was a good move by Shane, but I hope Boogie goes and Frank stays again - he has been nominated EVERY week (except while HoH obviously) meaning he has NEVER voted on a live show'/eviction night.... must be a new record?!?!

Letter from Jodi Foster

Jodi Foster is amazing....

We’ve all seen the headlines at the check-out counter. “Kristen Stewart Caught.” We’ve all thumbed the glossy pages here and there. “Kris and Rob a couple?” We all catch the snaps. “I like that dress. I hate the hair. Cute couple. Bad shoes.” There’s no guilt in acknowledging the human interest in public linens. It’s as old as the hills. Lift up beautiful young people like gods and then pull them down to earth to gaze at their seams. See, they’re just like us. But we seldom consider the childhoods we unknowingly destroy in the process.


I have been an actress since I was 3 years old, 46 years to date. I have no memories of a childhood outside the public eye. I am told people look to me as a success story. Often complete strangers approach me and ask, How have you stayed so normal, so well-adjusted, so private? I usually lie and say, “Just boring I guess.” The truth is, like some curious radioactive mutant, I have invented my own gothic survival tools. I have fashioned rules to control the glaring eyes. Maybe I’ve organized my career choices to allow myself (and the ones I truly love) maximum personal dignity. And, yes, I have neurotically adapted to the gladiator sport of celebrity culture, the cruelty of a life lived as a moving target. In my era, through discipline and force of will, you could still manage to reach for a star-powered career and have the authenticity of a private life. Sure, you’d have to lose your spontaneity in the elaborate architecture. You’d have to learn to submerge beneath the foul air and breathe through a straw. But at least you could stand up and say, I will not willfully participate in my own exploitation. Not anymore. If I were a young actor or actress starting my career today in the new era of social media and its sanctioned hunting season, would I survive? Would I drown myself in drugs, sex, and parties? Would I be lost?

I’ve said it before and I will say it again: if I were a young actor today I would quit before I started. If I had to grow up in this media culture, I don’t think I could survive it emotionally. I would only hope that someone who loved me, really loved me, would put their arm around me and lead me away to safety. Sarah Tobias would never have danced before her rapists in The Accused. Clarice would never have shared the awful screaming of the lambs to Dr. Lecter. Another actress might surely have taken my place, opened her soul to create those characters, surrendered her vulnerabilities. But would she have survived the paparazzi peering into her windows, the online harassment, the public humiliations, without overdosing in a hotel room or sticking her face with needles until she became unrecognizable even to herself?

Acting is all about communicating vulnerability, allowing the truth inside yourself to shine through regardless of whether it looks foolish or shameful. To open and give yourself completely. It is an act of freedom, love, connection. Actors long to be known in the deepest way for their subtleties of character, for their imperfections, their complexities, their instincts, their willingness to fall. The more fearless you are, the more truthful the performance. How can you do that if you know you will be personally judged, skewered, betrayed? If you’re smart, you learn to willfully disassociate, to compartmentalize. Putting your emotions into a safety box definitely comes in handy when the public throws stones. The point is to survive, intact or not, whatever the emotional cost. Actors who become celebrities are supposed to be grateful for the public interest. After all, they’re getting paid. Just to set the record straight, a salary for a given on-screen performance does not include the right to invade anyone’s privacy, to destroy someone’s sense of self.

In 2001 I spent 5 months with Kristen Stewart on the set of Panic Room mostly holed up in a space the size of a Manhattan closet. We talked and laughed for hours, sharing spontaneous mysteries and venting our boredom. I grew to love that kid. She turned 11 during our shoot and on her birthday I organized a mariachi band to serenade her at the taco bar while she blew out her candles. She begrudgingly danced around a sombrero with me but soon rushed off to a basketball game with the grip and electric departments. Her mother and I watched her jump around after the ball, hooting with every team basket. “She doesn’t want to be an actor when she grows up, does she?” I asked. Her mom sighed. “Yes … unfortunately.” We both smiled and shrugged with an ambivalence born from experience. “Can’t you talk her out of it?” I offered. “Oh, I’ve tried. She loves it. She just loves it.” More sighs. We watched her run around the court for a while, both of us silent, each thinking our own thoughts. I was pregnant at the time and found myself daydreaming of the child I might have soon. Would she be just like Kristen? All that beautiful talent and fearlessness … would she jump and dunk and make me so proud?

There’s this image I have of a perfect moment. It comes to me as a square format 8mm home movie with ’70s oversaturated reds and blues, no sound, just a scratchy loop … there’s a little white-haired girl twirling in the surf. She’s singing at the top of her lungs, jumping and spinning around in the cold water, all salty, sandy, full of joy and confidence. She’s unconscious of the camera, of course, in her own world. The camera shakes a little. Perhaps her mom’s laughing behind the lens. Could a child be more loved than in this moment? She’s perfect. She is absolutely perfect.

Cut to: Today … A beautiful young woman strides down the sidewalk alone, head down, hands drawn into fists. She’s walking fast, darting around huge men with black cameras thrusting at her mouth and chest. “Kristen, how do you feel?” “Smile Kris!” “Hey, hey, did you get her?” “I got her. I got her!” The young woman doesn’t cry. Fuck no. She doesn’t look up. She’s learned. She keeps her head down, her shades on, fists in her pockets. Don’t speak. Don’t look. Don’t cry.

My mother had a saying that she doled out after every small injustice, every heartbreak, every moment of abject suffering. “This too shall pass.” God, I hated that phrase. It always seemed so banal and out of touch, like she was telling me my pain was irrelevant. Now it just seems quaint, but oddly true … Eventually this all passes. The public horrors of today eventually blow away. And, yes, you are changed by the awful wake of reckoning they leave behind. You trust less. You calculate your steps. You survive. Hopefully in the process you don’t lose your ability to throw your arms in the air again and spin in wild abandon. That is the ultimate F.U. and—finally—the most beautiful survival tool of all. Don’t let them take that away from you.

- Jodie Foster

Extra Interview: Rob walks away when asked about staying at Reese's house...

Good for him for just kind of laughing, walking away, moving on.... sheesh! Tough timing for this promo... no.. I take that back.. tough timing for this bullshit cheating! Sheesh!

The end of Kristen Stewart's Career? I think not!

Today news broke that Kristen Stewart was "fired" from the SWATH sequel. Reasons were varied, most saying instead of pursuing a second film with Snow White, the focus would move to the Huntsman (which had always been the plan, though perhaps for a 3rd film)

Anyways, now reports are saying the news is being spun a bit differently from the actual facts... big surprise...

Since the cheating scandal media has tried to jump on anything to keep the story alive, despite the actors involved keeping quiet... typical!

E! Online Writes:

Contrary to a report, Stewart has not been dropped from Universal's planned Snow White and the Huntsman sequel because the concept is being retooled to focus on Chris Hemsworth's Huntsman.

Rather, she was never officially attached to one to begin with. (And, for that matter, neither is Hemsworth, as yet.)

What's true is that the first film's scribe, David Koepp, is no longer working on a second film, sources confirmed to E! News Tuesday.

Gossip Cop reports:
Those are some big claims.

And they’re WRONG.

A well-placed insider tells Gossip Cop that Stewart “hasn’t been dropped,” adding that the THR story is “inaccurate.”

“There isn’t a script” yet, our source points out, making it impossible to know for sure which characters will be included in future installments.

In fact, a spokesperson for Universal says NO decisions have been made.

“The studio is currently exploring options to continue the franchise,” the rep says.

This news comes only days after another report that Kristen was dropped from a frangrance and dropped out of a film (CALI) adding to the media frenzy over Kristen and her cheating with SWATH director Rupert Sanders. The story is big and everyone is jumping on board... obviously...

Gossip Cop says websites have...

... magically created a whole inaccurate backstory about Stewart’s professional career falling apart.

But it’s NOT TRUE.

Stewart had never been slated to be in the graphics-heavy video.

A Balenciaga source tells Gossip Cop the rumor is 100 percent false, and even noted the company just posted an ad featuring Stewart on its Facebook page.

Oh, and there’s one more thing — the video for the fragrance came out a week before the scandal even broke.


So there you have it... I expect more rumours in light of the "scandal" but I think in the end, she will be just fine. She has been acting since she was a child, and once the dust settles, and it will as soon as the next Hollywood big wig makes a mistake... things will get back to normal....
