Television's most delightful occult/weird-crime/Tibetan Book of the Dead soap opera was Twin Peaks, first broadcast on ABC in 1990 and 1991. It was a magical era before all the characters stared at smart phones and websites all the time, because such things didn't exist.

She became increasingly irritated by the attention she received, ranting about it in song and on reality TV.

The Michael Jackson estate is reportedly in talks for the inevitable film about the life of the King of Pop. Ivan Reitman's Montecito Picture Company – which has brought us Old School and Up In The Air, but also EuroTrip and The Pink Panther – might produce.

Who on earth would play Princess Di in a movie? There is no one more needlessly deified on either side of the pond and no actress is going to be able to survive the scrutiny of such a performance.

Project Runway recently announced its Season 9 competitors, and here's a familiar face: Anya Ayoung-Chee realized she had "designer potential" when she "had the opportunity to consult on my wardrobe for the Miss Universe pageant in 2008," as Miss Trinidad-and-Tobago. The same Miss Trinidad-and-Tobago who would go on to have a sex tape scandal involving girl-on-girl action and an indignant ex-boyfriend. NSFW video here.
