TV DIVAGAL'S DAILY FIVE (plus one!): Showtime, The CW and Ellen!By Delaina Dixon | July 30, 2010 | Entertainment
ΓÇó With Ellen DeGeneres leaving American Idol, reports are out that Fox could name her replacement as soon as Monday at the Television Critics Conference in Los Angeles. Guess where TV DivaGal is right now? Will keep you posted! (EW)
ΓÇó Cynthia Nixon totally abandons her uptight Sex and the City Miranda Davis role to play Rebecca on The Big C with Laura Linney. “Rebecca is kind of this wild, loose girl who never grew up, who took Cathy out of her shell, and she will do that again for her,” Laura shared at the new series TCA panel. “It’s a lot of fun to see Cynthia playing kind of the wild, sexy, free, a little off-the-rails character.” Cause Samantha shouldn’t be able to have all the fun!
ΓÇó Speaking of The Big CΓÇª If you’re a Broadway fan, keep a keen eye out for theater stars to pop up in the new sew Showtime series, The Big C. Executive producer and star Laura Linney shot on the east coast so she could, “take advantage of the theater community that’s there. And we’ve been very lucky with people who are willing and enthusiastic to be a part of it.”And we’re happy you’re lowering the unemployment rate!
ΓÇó Gossip Girl is getting a new look! “When Gossip Girl comes online this year, she will be under construction because she’s giving herself a facelift and adding some new features that we never previously had,” executive producer Stephanie Savage announced at the series TCA panel, adding the changes would reflect some of the current technology available. For these girls, it’s never too early to saving your youth.
ΓÇó Dexter Update! Life for newlyweds Lt. Maria Laguerta and Angel Batista “does not go well,” star Lauren Velez tells the TV DivaGal exclusively. “It’s conflict, conflict, conflict.” Sounds like that relationship could use Dexter’s ax.
