Gingerbreadmama's Gossip Wrap: Boobs & Buffy Edition

Every Rose Has Its Thorn Indeed

Miley Cyrus planned on singing Poison's Every Rose Has its Thorn at last week's AMA Awards but the tune was changed due to the affair her mother and Bret Michaels (allegedly) had. That decision actually impressed me until I saw that she opted to wear this to her 18th birthday party.


Bet that got your attention. Katy Perry asked to have her rack made smaller in the ads for VH1's Divas Salute the Troops special. Before you freak out, it was just Perry's digitized image that was reduced; you can see the real deal if you watch the show on December 5.

 The Return of Buffy (to the big screen)

Before you get overly excited, it will be sans Joss Whedon. I know, right? How can that be?? Well, Warner Bros. is remaking the 1992 movie but apparently this new version of Buffy will not be set in high school.

Charles Roven and Steve Alexander will produce the movie, with Doug Davison and Roy Lee. Whit Anderson is writing the script.

"Whit approached us with an exciting idea about how to update Buffy," Roven said. "There is an active fan base eagerly awaiting this character's return to the big screen. We're thrilled to team up with Doug and Roy on a re-imagining of Buffy and the world she inhabits.... She'll be just as witty, tough and sexy as we all remember her to be."

According to the Los Angeles Times, the movie is scheduled to hit theaters in late 2011 or 2012If you want to know how Joss reacted, scoot over to Eonline.com for the scoop

Paris Hilton is being sued by Hairtech International for alleged breach of contract (one claim is that she wore competitors products while under contract) in the amount of $33 mil, but now Paris is countersuing them for $3 mil saying she was "professional and honorable".

I know I should add a good quip here but it's just.so.absurd

New couple watch

Kim Kardashian and Halle Berry's ex-beau/babydaddy (does his name matter?) are  "dating a little bit According to reports, he has already met her mother, which signifies more than "a little bit" in most relationships…surely there will be more to come.

Quote of the Week

"But it wasn't until he put his hands around my neck that I really thought to myself, you have gotten yourself in a bad, bad situation," Capri Anderson, adult film actress, commenting on why she is suing Charlie Sheen for false imprisonment and battery.

Don't care how many times you repeat a word, I'm fairly sure if someone had their hands around my neck I would be using words a lot stronger then "bad" to describe the situation.

Movies opening this week

Best column yet.

And Halle's ex is Gabriel Aubry.

World's 15th hottest man

What the hell's up with all the formatting and spacing errors ...and the double copy? And why is this column up today instead of Friday?

T - you and the Editor need to come up with an editorial calendar and stick to it. Too much published today.

I agree with Kara. This needed to be edited. There are paragraphs pertaining to certain sections in the wrong sections. You know I'm around to edit when NHF-EIC isn't available.

I love Joss Whedon, Buffy, and Angel. Why they would try to reboot Buffy without Joss is beyond me.

This was a piping hot mess of formatting errors. I blame the missing E-I-C, the "publish this" feature on Microsoft Word, which never does what I want it to, and an unfortunate run in with a box of white wine.

I realize your time on the theater stage makes it natural for you but try not to be so dramatic. This was published today because it IS Gingerbread Mama's end of week! Don't you think it would have been a bit stale if published tomorrow? Yes there's a lot published (3 columnists!! And to say that you were feeling loquacious is an understatement) but keep in mind that besides a possible post on black Friday, we're closed until Monday so there was a rush to get all the columns out. But they don't need to be digested in one sitting. Nibble a bit and then come back later.

You've given us a great suggestion. Your love of structure and order is a valuable asset and I don't think we're playing to your strengths with your current assignment.

" an unfortunate run in with a box of white wine."


As for me, I can't nibble - all the columns were too good.

Oh, and Word sucks, so I feel your pain.
