Sigh. The afterglow never lasts for long.
Jeff Lewis is suing Jenni Pulos over a book she has written, claiming she is in violation of non-disclosure agreements. I think we've finally reached the point where Jeff's tendency to push people away has finally gotten Jenni.
I suspect someone at Hgtv is smacking their forehead and exclaiming, "A show about a design firm staffed by models/handymen? Why didn't I think of that?"
Macy's has responded to the petition that the retailer cut their association with Donald Trump, giving Us Weekly a statement where they try to distance themselves from his recent election inspired extra-awfulness while continuing to sell products with his name.
NBC is developing a drama about George Washington that would switch back and forth between the time when Washington was a revolutionary fighting for the colonies' independence and his time as the country's first president. I »
The Comic-Con 2012 schedule has now been released in full, and barring any major updates, is set. The blessing and curse of being an attendee is deciding which panels/autograph sessions/special events to attend, when they conflict. And they always do.
For you to see for yourself, below are what we are calling the “headliner” panels; those panels that are taking place in Hall H, Ballroom 20, Room 6Bdf, and the just-next-door Hilton Indigo Ballroom, the four major venues for panels. There are descriptions of each panel as well as the show(s) and/or movie(s) they are there to discuss.
See how many conflicts you might have, or how you might arrange time and space to somehow attend these plus spend every day in the vendors’ Exhibit Hall and chasing zombies in the nearby The Walking Dead Escape. By the way, if you figure that out, Please let us know. »

Another day, another schedule for the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. Next up is Day 3 - Saturday, July 14th - which is just about as chock-full of events for the horror crowd as Friday the 13th!
As always, our focus is the horror panels, but included are a few others that we think will be of interest as well. Remember that times and participants are subject to change so keep your eyes on the official Sdcc site for updates. And hopefully they'll provide a fix soon for the Sdcc smartphone app - in years past it's been extremely helpful.
10:00-11:00 Comic-Con How-To: Anatomy of a Fight Scene, Part One— Stories are about conflict, and there is no purer form of conflict than a good ol' fisticuffs-style brawl-or sword fight, laser battle, western shootout, or even two chicks pulling each other's hair. How do you put that much action down on »

In a recent event to promote her new YouTube channel, Geek and Sundry (an event which was, incidentally, the largest-scale Google + Hangout that there’s been so far), web series queen Felicia Day (The Guild, Dragon Age: Redemption) briefly addressed her friend Joss Whedon’s upcoming superhero flick The Avengers, saying: “I know a couple of people in it, but some of them might be spoilers so I really can’t say.”
This could mean that The Avengers features Awesome Secret Surprise Cameos, or just that, in order to avoid spoilers, Felicia Day’s erring on the safe side. But for the purposes of crazed fanboy speculation, we shall assume the former, and hope for cameos as brilliant as those in The Muppets.
[Casting speculation spoilers follow.]

Day’s energy is contagious as she beamed excitement about the new online content offered by Geek & Sundry saying:
