Bobbi Kristina Brown's husband Nick Gordon has been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) in Georgia. Gordon, 25, was arrested this morning for allegedly drink-driving, failure to maintain a lane and driving with a suspended license after he overturned his BMW SUV in Roswell, Georgia. Police told the MailOnline that preliminary investigations show Nick clipped the curb while trying to change lanes, which caused his car to flip and smash into a fire hydrant. However, despite the extreme damage of his vehicle, Nick and his passenger, Bobbi's best friend, Mason Whitaker didn't sustain any serious injuries. Nick was taken to Roswell Detention Center and currently remains in custody. However, this isn't the first time he has had a run-in with the law as he was also arrested two years ago for reckless driving and speeding. Meanwhile, the daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Nick, who have shared a »

Brittany Murphy movie 'a murder mystery'

26 August 2014 12:48 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Lifetimes biopic of the actor takes inspiration from later-discredited poisoning claims made by her father

Brittany Murphys final film to be released

Lifetime, the Us TV channel known for controversial unauthorised biopics of Aaliyah and Whitney Houston has released the first trailer for its film about the life of Brittany Murphy. True to form, the TV biopic will reportedly examine discredited claims by the late actors father that her death was the result of poisoning.

The Wrap reports the film, titled The Brittany Murphy Story, is being pitched as a murder mystery. Four years after the star of Clueless, Girl, Interrupted and Eight Mile collapsed at her home in the Hollywood Hills, her estranged father Angelo Bertolotti presented the press with evidence suggesting she had been poisoned. However, experts later questioned the legitimacy of the independent toxicology report and Murphys mother made a public statement denouncing the claims as a smear. »

Inside the Emmy Parties: Ian Somerhalder, George R.R. Martin, ‘The Good Wife’ and ‘Veep’ Casts on the Scene

23 August 2014 12:59 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Emmy Awards aren’t till Monday, Aug. 25, but the celebrations start early. Variety will be on hand inside the best parties around Hollywood as the stars mingle, nibble and toast to TV’s finest. Here’s our party report for Friday, Aug. 22:

6:35 p.m. “Classy” is a good word to describe “The Good Wife,” and it’s the perfect adjective to describe the early evening reception that CBS threw at Il Cielo to toast the show and its nommed stars: Julianna Margulies, Josh Charles and Christine Baranski. The gathering on the private patio next to the restaurant was intimate and relaxed. And the Burton Way eatery lived up to its reputation for incredible pasta dishes.

6:40 p.m. “Good Wife” creators/showrunners Robert and Michelle King are too classy to dwell on the fact that the show was not nominated in the top drama series despite universal accolades for its fifth season. »

Bart & Fleming: On Robin Williams And Empathetic Star Send-Offs

17 August 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr. worked together for two decades at Daily Variety. In this occasional column, two old friends get together and grind their axes on the movie business.

Fleming: I had the dubious honor this week of writing our Robin Williams obit. Well actually it was more of a news story than, say, the obit of Lauren Bacall that came a day later. I found it a soul-sucking experience, leaving me the same empty feeling as when we published similar pieces on Tony Scott, Paul Walker, Whitney Houston, James Gandolfini, Corey Monteith and Michael Jackson. Juggling hard news with empathy in reporting a tragic loss of one so brilliant is the recipe for an awful day.

Bart: The suicide of a figure like Robin Williams always forces an editor to make a painful distinction: There’s a difference between a celebrity and a mythic figure. A celebrity gets a respectful obit. »

Brittany Murphy Is Getting the Lifetime Movie Treatment

13 August 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It took Lifetime a surprisingly long time to get around to making a movie about the life of actress Brittany Murphy, who died in 2009. The movie will star Amanda Fuller ("Last Man Standing," "Cheap Thrills") as the "Clueless" star, with Sherilyn Fenn ("Twin Peaks," "Ray Donovan") appearing as Brittany's mom Sharon. Murphy was only 32 when she died from a reported cardiac arrest, and her husband Simon Monjack died several months later. However, Murphy's biological father Angelo Bertolotti wanted to have her death re-investigated; he purported Murphy and Monjack were poisoned, and tried unsuccessfully to prove it in court.

The network is (in)famous for its dramatic, usually tragic biopics of famous women, like Anna Nicole Smith, Aaliyah, Whitney Houston, and Donatella Versace, as well as cheesy made-for-tv movies like "Flowers in the Attic" and "Lizzie Borden Took an Ax." The "Flowers" sequel, "Petals on the Wind," brought in 3.4M viewers, »

6 producers who should work with Mariah Carey now that Jermaine Dupri is out

6 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There’s more chaos in Mariah Carey Land as she and her manager Jermaine Dupri have parted  ways and veteran label executive Kevin Liles is now handling Team Mariah. As you’ll recall, Dupri was only on board as her official manager since last fall, but he and Carey have a very long history as musical collaborators, going back to 1995’s “Daydream.” He served as executive producer on Carey’s latest set, “Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse," and co-produced five tracks on the album. As you know, that album continues to circle the drain. It’s worst than if she’d never released an album because she now has this huge commercial failure around her neck. “Mariah” sold 58,000 in its first week of release in May, which was by far her poorest showing in her 25-year career.  It’s a shame because the album, as overstuffed and scattered as it was, »

"Let her rest." That was Whitney Houston's mother's message for the makers of the upcoming Lifetime biopic about her daughter. But the actor who plays Bobby Brown in the Angela Bassett-directed TV movie told The Hollywood Reporter that while he understands where the late singer's family is coming from, he thinks the project honors her memory. "I really do feel like it does do her justice, and at the same time, I do understand their reservations," Arlen Escarpeta told THR Monday night at the premiere of his new movie Into the Storm.
