Lindsey Lohan To Play Elizabeth Taylor

When Lohan got her release from supervised probation, she made it very clear that she was ready for a fresh new start and the quick return to acting. She also made it clear that she was going to try for the role of Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s made-for-TV movie, “Liz and Dick”. It looks like she got her wish, because the child star has been chosen for the role.

Lifetime is known for its targeting towards female audiences. Since Elizabeth Taylor was a role model for hundreds of women of that era, this movie will, again, speak to the hearts and minds of females.

As for her heart and mind where Taylor is concerned, Lohan stated that she has always had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor. She went on to say she felt that Taylor was not only an incredible actress, but an amazing woman. Lohan said she is very honored to have been accepted to play the role of one of her idols. The movie will show the life and love affair of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, as stormy and legendary as it was.

There have been rumors of Lohan’s suggested involvement in the making of the movie since January of 2012. The movie, itself, has been in discussion and development with the network since May of 2011. It was written by Christopher Monger, who has won the Emmy for his work on “Temple Grandin”. Continue reading

“Dance Moms Miami” Offers Lots Of Drama

This week’s episode of “Dance Moms Miami” is just as crazy as last week’s episode.  While the original Dance Moms was extremely entertaining this new and improved season is just that.  The poor dance teachers seem so much more normal while the Moms appear to be getting crazier and crazier.

The show came on and the dancing rank goes up!  Lucas and his Mother were thrilled this week when the adorable little Justin Beiber Situation dance protégée got placed at the top of the list.  Most likely this was because he did not drop Kimmy in their dance solo from last week.  Kimmy was also praised with a second place spot, even though her Mother thought that she and Lucas should have tied.
