It is Easter (or was) - a time of mystery and resurrection. What better moment to solve some of the sacred enigmas of the modern era: why was Merle Ginsberg booted from the judges’ panel of RuPaul’s Drag Race at the end of season two? What fiend hides behind the rise of Michelle Visage? And why is everyone on the judges panel so blurry? Well, now we know. Sort of.
In Ru Hollywood Stories, the remaining queens had to summon up their acting skills to give us three separate versions of how Hollywood Reporter’s sharp-tongued Ginsberg came to be replaced in Ru’s harem by Visage. Exegesis is not an exact science, and while the ladies tried their
Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Jessica Alba, Kat Dennings, Alyssa Milano, Jordin Sparks, Olivia Newton-John, John Waters, Mel B, Tamar Braxton, Rebecca Romijn, Isaac Mizrahi, Michael Urie and “Fashion Police’s” Kathy Griffin are among the celebrity guest judges who will stop by the new episodes. Former judges Santino Rice and Merle Ginsberg will also make a guest appearance.
The upcoming season will feature two new full-time judges: Ross Mathews (“Hello Ross,” “Chelsea Lately”) and Carson Kressley (“Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”). Mathews and Kressley join the returning Michelle Visage and RuPaul on the permanent panel.
“I asked for a new, wickedly funny, smart and experienced judge…and I got two,” said exec producer RuPaul. “Ross and Carson are the perfect addition to the ‘RuPaul
In the video, the aspiring drag queens compete head-to-head on the runway as they vie for the crown to become a world renowned performer like host RuPaul Charles.
“You probably know what to expect,” RuPaul says in the trailer. “You don’t.”

The season appears to be glittered with grittier insults, colorful makeup and edgier drag queens than ever before. One contestant even walks the runway
RuPaul’s Drag Race finally has a Season 7 premiere date — and a reconfigured judging panel, too.
Logo announced today that a new collection of queens will be lip-syncing for their lives starting Monday, March 2 at 9/8c — with Ross Matthews (Chelsea Lately) and Carson Kressley (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) replacing Santino Rice as permanent judges alongside RuPaul and Michelle Visage.
Rice, however, will return as a guest judge.
Season 7’s additional guest judges will include: Ariana Grande, Jessica Alba, Demi Lovato, John Waters, Kathy Griffin, Olivia Newton-John, Alyssa Milano, Kat Dennings, Jordin Sparks, Mel B, Tamar Braxton,

And now for the real T: This season, Ru has lined up the most delicious group of guest judges, including Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, and Mel B, to help determine which queen will become America’s next drag superstar.
We know Ariana knows how to shake a tail feather on the runway, and after getting nearly stomped on at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, we hope she’ll have a thing or two to say to these queens about serving up some fierce competition.

Kidman tells Merle Ginsberg, "People thought that making the film was the beginning of the end of my marriage, but I don't really think it was." She goes on to point out the kinky sex seen on screen was not the reality of her sex life with Tom.
"Stanley had to coax me into some of the sexuality in the film in the beginning," says Nicole, "but we shot things that were a lot more extreme that didn't end up in the movie."
Nicole says she and Tom watched Kubrick's cut of the film, then found out the following morning he died. "I just started screaming,

The glamorous Marie Claire editrix has no time for fashion with a less-than-editorial edge, and she’s regularly the most intimidating part of a panel that also includes the fire-breathing Michael Kors and the perpetually aloof Heidi Klum. When she’s not dispensing displeasure at the drop of an accessory, she’s sighing with the kind of amazing contempt that warranted Meryl Streep an Oscar nom in The Devil Wears Prada.

Here Michael and co-star Owen Wilson give their reactions to The Hollywood Reporter:
Michael Sheen, Midnight in Paris — outstanding drama ensemble: “How lovely? I’m assuming “ensemble” is French for Best British Actor Playing A Pedantic American With A Pointy Beard?”
Owen Wilson, Midnight in Paris — outstanding drama ensemble: “It’s an honor to be recognized by your peers and I thank my fellow SAG members for this nomination and am proud to have been a part of such an incredible ensemble, as well as Woody Allen’s vision.”
From the La Times:
Demián Bichir, a 48-year-old Mexican actor little-known to American moviegoers, scored a surprise best actor nomination at the SAG Awards on Wednesday morning.
Bichir, who plays an illegal immigrant pursuing the American dream in “A Better Life,” beat out a couple of projected favorites in the category, including “Shame’s” Michael Fassbender and Gary Oldman from “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.” Directed by Chris Weitz, “A Better Life” has only grossed $1.8 million at the U.S. box office.
Here Demián Bichir reacts to his nomination to The Hollywood Reporter:
Demián Bichir, A Better Life — outstanding lead actor in a drama: “My girlfriend called me, that was really good. I just could not believe the statement saying that I was nominated, and with all those other amazing actors. It’s the actor’s vote. It’s so rewarding fellow peers vote for you. To me to be among these amazing actors, it’s a double honor. I’m overwhelmed by the whole thing. [Laughs] I’ve been an actor since I was a kid, grew up in the theater, I was 17 when I did my first play, O’Neill’s Ah Wilderness — I thought I wanted the rest of the world to get to know my work. Everyone knows how tough the competition is in the United States for any artist. So to have a place amongst so much talent I feel truly blessed.” — Merle Ginsberg

This item first appeared in the Rambling Reporter column of the Dec. 2 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Fans always have been a staple of movie premieres, shrieking and even fainting from their perch safely behind the red carpet. But bowing to the audience's desire to interact more closely with their idols, studios in recent years have increasingly invited select die-hards inside the barricades.

Zoe helped dress the actress for her Academy Awards co-hosting stint with James Franco last month and, although Hathaway's performance met mixed reviews, her gowns were stunning.
On the strength of that and her many other star stylings, Zoe has topped a list of the 25 most powerful celebrity stylists in the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter.
The publication's senior writer Merle Ginsberg says, "It's important for a stylist to carve out an aesthetic, much like a designer does, but she also needs to give her clients what they want, and Zoe is a master at that... She does Cameron Diaz as the bohemian, but Eva Mendes is not, and Anne Hathaway is no bohemian."
Former Vogue editor Kate Young, who has helped style Oscar winner Natalie Portman's maternity look, comes in second on the list and Emma Stone and Hailee Steinfeld's style expert Petra Flannery is third.
On the off chance that anyone at Cartoon Network reads anything I write, I want to go on record as opposing their upcoming programming choices. Not only are you putting live-action programming on something called “Cartoon Network” you also bust out this sentence, which is as close to blasphemy as you can get: “The network also announced that coming later in the year would be an all-new re-imagined version of the Warner Bros animated classic shorts, Looney Tunes.”
Also departing from the title of their network, History Channel is set to premiere their version of Top Gear with Adam Ferrara, Tanner Foust and Rutledge Wood.
