Well, this is unexpected: Ben Affleck is reportedly David Fincher's top pick to play the male lead in Gone Girl, an adaptation of the best-selling 2012 thriller by Gillian Flynn. (Reese Witherspoon is producing and presumably interested in the role of Amy. Update: Maybe not.) Affleck is a little older than the Nick we'd pictured, but honestly, this could be a great fit: Affleck's charming in a sleazy way; believably (but not too) small-town; and now that we think about it, even looks like Scott Peterson. Good work, David Fincher. Lock this down. »

Lifetime has made a biographical TV movie to hold us over as we wait for a new jury to be selected so that Jodi’s trial can continue. The murder case has been so highly publicized and poured over, could a dramatization of the whole thing even be worth it? See how the critics felt!
Lifetime sure isn’t wasting any time. Though usually the network holds off a little bit on making their melodrama, “based on a true story” TV movies (like their Scott Peterson film), they didn’t even wait until Jodi Arias’ trail officially ended before making a movie based on her story, called Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret. The movie, which depicts everything leading up to the night Jodi stabbed her boyfriend Travis Alexander nearly 30 times, slit his throat, and shot him in the head, premiered on June 22 and surprisingly, it wasn’t half-bad!

Why Is It Always About You? The Seven Deadly Sins of Narcissism:
1. Shamelessness: Shame is the feeling that lurks beneath all unhealthy narcissism, and the inability to process shame in healthy ways.
2. Magical thinking: Narcissists see themselves as perfect, using distortion and illusion known as magical thinking. They also use projection to dump shame onto others.
3. Arrogance: A narcissist who is feeling deflated may reinflate by diminishing, debasing, or degrading somebody else.
4. Envy: A narcissist may secure a sense of superiority in the face of another person’s ability by using contempt to minimize the other person.
5. Entitlement: Narcissists hold unreasonable expectations of particularly favorable treatment and automatic »
