queen-sophie-anne-episode-11

This Sunday on “True Blood” viewers will be introduced to Evan Rachel Wood as Queen Sophie-Anne, a 1,100 year old vampire who heads the Louisiana monarchy, who  Bill (Stephen Moyer) approaches for help. And we’ll discover that the Queen is actually hooked up with Sookie’s cousin, Hadley Hale (Lindsey Haun).

Evan Rachel Wood is coquettishly hinting that viewers could see her in steamy scenes with either men or women “Her human partner is a girl,” Evan Rachel Wood says of her “True Blood” character, “but I’m pretty sure she goes both ways.”

evan rachel wood“She’s not necessarily a lesbian,” Wood told E!Online. “Her human partner is a girl, but I’m pretty sure she goes both ways [laughs]. I think vampires are like that in general.”

The 21-year-old former girlfriend of Marilyn Manson and star of “The Wrestler” was vague about what’s in store for her character, but suggested that nudity could certainly happen. “They are bringing me back next season, so it’s always a possibility. It’s kind of inevitable.”

thequeenMarc Malkin of E!Online interviewed Evan about the Queen, and while she couldn’t give up the goods in terms of what’s coming up next on the show, she did divulge that if she had to choose between vampires Bill and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) she would choose the deviously sexy Skarsgard. “I would say, Team AlexEric! Whoops.” When asked if she had seen the super sexy clip of Alexander’s shower scene in “Hundtricket” she replied: “I am not going to lie. Yes I have.” She then added, That’s another great thing about my job—all of my scenes are with Bill and Eric! I was surrounded by beautiful people constantly.”

The vampiric actor was spotted stepping back into his role as hot and sexy vampire Edward Cullen for the first time since filming started. RadarOnline.com had the amazing  photos of the actor’s return to his famous role. Emerging from his trailer with a pale face and cherry tinted luscious lips, Pattinson took a break from filming in Vancouver and hung out with co-stars and fellow bloodsuckers Ashley Greene and Jackson Rathbone.

hot vampThe security surrounding the cast members in Vancouver has been high, especially since Pattinson caused such a stir while filming in NYC that he was clipped by a cab trying to escape crowds full of Twihards. Rob was last spotted at a Kings of Leon concert over a week ago with co-star Kristen Stewart.

With Edward on set, his Bella shouldn’t be too far behind so I’ll be on the lookout for photos of Kristen Stewart and sexy wolf Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black).

MORNING COFFEE: “TWILIGHT: NEW MOON” First Look at the Frightening Volturi (PHOTOS)

At the release of “Twilight: New Moon” approaches we’re being thrown breadcrumbs from Summit Entertainment to make sure we’re still fanatical about the movie. Well, we are and these chilling newly released photos of the evil Volturi confirm that that true to the book, the latest installment of the “Twilight” series is making an eerie turn.

dakota janeAnything “Twilight” touches turns to gold and as November 20 quickly approaches you can expect the fameball of the cast members to rise as Twihards and fans alike embrace the latest film which has Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Jacob (Taylor Lautner) in the early stages of their love triangle with Edward (Robert Pattinson).

In “New Moon,” the second installment in Stephenie Meyer’s wildly popular “Twilight”  saga, readers are introduced to the ancient ruling class of vampires known as the Volturi. Director Chris Weitz did a brilliant job in capturing their corpselike appearance and mysterious presence by giving them custom-crafted blood-red eyes. “They’re all hand-painted, specially manufactured contacts,” Weitz told People magazine. “They’re opaque red, almost like preying mantis eyes. You can’t really see into them. There’s something terribly off-putting about it.”

dakota-fanningBritish actor Michael Sheen plays Aro, leader of the Italian blood-sucking clan. Although Aro and his brothers Marcus (Christopher Heyerdahl) and Caius (Jamie Campbell Bower) have been “alive” for thousands of years, Weitz says he “deliberately” gave them a younger look in the film – for which he credits author Meyer. “Stephenie was very keen to steer away from a kind of wizard-y look for the vampires,” says Weitz. “They do look quite young, but they convey a formality and self-possession, which comes from age.”

The most lethal of all the Volturi is Jane (Dakota Fanning), an angelic-looking vampire who inflicts physical torture on her victims. “She is very strange and very spooky in this movie,” says Weitz. “I think [Dakota] wanted to play an evil character for once.”

Fanning showed off Jane’s bloodthirsty look in new promo photos for “New Moon.” Co-star Michael Sheen says Fanning’s look is plain creepy. “I think Dakota may look the most unsettling,” he Tweeted earlier this summer. “So angelic, yet so weird. As Jane that is, of course. Like an evil red riding hood.” “Keep forgetting how freaky I look with my red eyes,” Sheen Tweeted.

“New Moon” hits theaters November 20.

HAPPY HOUR: How NATASHA RICHARDSON’S Death Convinced LIAM NEESON To Become U.S Citizen

PD*30579024Liam Neeson is speaking out about how the U.S. outpouring of grief in response to his wife’s death helped him decide to become an American citizen.

The Irishman lost his wife, actress Natasha Richardson, in March after what first appeared to be a minor fall while skiing in Canada. Appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America, Neeson said he and the couple’s two sons were ‘doing good’ five months after the tragic accident. ‘To be honest, we are taking each day as it comes,’ he said.

liam and natashaRichardson died in March, aged 45, after banging her head in a skiing fall at the Quebec resort of Mont Tremblant. She had declined medical treatment at the scene and laughed off the incident, but later reported feeling unwell and an ambulance was called to her hotel. Her condition swiftly deteriorated and she was transferred from a local hospital to a larger unit in Montreal, where doctors established that she was brain dead. She was then flown to New York, where the family gathered to say a last goodbye. After a few days, Neeson and other relatives made the heartbreaking decision to take her off life support. The couple had two sons together, Michael and Daniel.

Neeson, who is originally from Ballymena in County Antrim, Northern Ireland and currently resides in New York, is still getting extraordinary letters of condolences from well wishers across the country which is one of the reasons he decided to become a U.S. citizen. ‘That is partly the reason why I’ve recently become an American citizen,’ Neeson said, adding: ‘I’m still a proud Irishman, of course, but I’ve become an American citizen – I’m very proud of that.’

One of the well wishers who offered support during his time of need was Ted Kennedy, who wrote Neeson following Richardson’s death. ‘I met him a couple of times, and he wrote my family a very beautiful, touching condolence letter when Natasha died. It is the end of an era. I have a very clear memory of being a 10-year-old boy and being taken to the ancestral Kennedy homestead in Ireland and posing for a photograph underneath the gable of their home with the American flag and the Irish flag up there on the gable.’

liam neesonSince Natasha’s passing Liam has been keeping busy with work and will appear as Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg’s upcoming biopic. He will also voice the character of Aslas in the next Narnia film.

Natasha Richardson was part of one of the great theatrical dynasties: the Redgraves. She appeared in more than 30 Hollywood films, but was best known for her work on the stage. She performed a number of Shakespearean roles, among them Ophelia in Hamlet and Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In 1998 she won a Tony award, for best actress in a musical, for her performance as Sally Bowles in Sam Mendes’s Broadway production of Cabaret.

Housing Works, the largest community-based AIDS service organization in the United States, hosts a monthly “Editor’s Choice” series where fashions elite come together to shop in the name of charity. For August’ installment of the popular Editor’s Choice series, Allure Fashion Director and Housing Works Board Member Michael Carl hosted “Last Days of Summer” at the Tribeca location.

MV Fashion 504The one-night-only charity shopping event featured carefully curated items by the fabulously handsome Michael Carl and featured one final dose of stylish warm weather clothes before we start bundling up. The soiree was co-hosted by fashion designers Charlotte Ronson and Shoshanna Gruss, who both donated items to be sold at the event. “I’m so excited to host my first Housing Works event as a board member in the company of Charlotte and Shoshanna,” Carl said. “We’re going to celebrate the summer while raising money for Housing Works’ mission to fight AIDS in New York.”

At the low price of $60, I grabbed the classic alligator embossed heels and tucked them away in a safe place so nobody could steal them away. Marie purchased a Shoshanna bikini for $40 and a pair of Charlotte Ronson wedge heels with tassel front for $65. Jen gets the award for most hilarious purchase of the night with a Bollywood dance fitness video. Also, they sold new havaianas flip flops for a mere $5.

Famespy intern, Alise, emerged from the dressing room in the crystallized dress and my jaw hit the floor. Our youthful teenager looked like she was about to walk the red carpet and was immediately transformed from innocent Minnesota teen to the quintessential New Yorker. She looked spectacular and was ready to hit the town to show off her new find. It just goes to show that you never know what you’ll find when you dig through the racks of one of NYC’s best thrift shops.

The powerful showpiece is an attention getter and something that is visually pleasing that I would be open to displaying in my house like fine art. The skull and Swarovski crystal-embellished knuckle duster clutch mixes goth-chic with high fashion glamour making it the only accessory you need for a night out.

Picasso’s ‘The Naked Woman’ Recovered; Found in Home of Former Member of Saddam Hussein’s Security Force

Iraq PaintingSpecial forces have recovered a stolen Picasso painting and arrested a man planning to sell it during a raid of his house in southern Iraq.

The Naked Womanwent missing from the al-Ahmedi Hall of the Kuwait Museum in the aftermath of the Iraqi invasion that triggered the first Gulf war. It was seized Tuesday from a former soldier in Saddam Hussein’s military, about 60 miles south of Baghdad. The man had been attempting to sell the painting for $450,000, but some Iraqi experts who saw the painting said it was worth $10 million.

The painting, which was signed by Pablo Picasso and bore inscriptions from “The Museum of Kuwait” is being held as evidence. The suspect, who claimed to be an electrician, is a former member of Saddam’s security force.

Newly released photos of the painting show it’s slightly damaged after having been folded. “There were stamps on the back of the painting saying ‘Kuwait State Museum. Al-Ahmedi Hall’, which we know is among the stolen things from Kuwait,” the official said.
