Nina Garcia guest judges on 'Project Runway All Stars'

Guest judges come and go on Project Runway, but’s no one who feels more comfortable in the seat than this week’s All Star guest judge: Nina Garcia. She brings her fashion industry knowledge as well as her years of Project Runway judgeship experience to critique the all stars’ looks.

This week’s challenge requires the designers to create a look that embodies their past, present, and future loves. And love is not what the judges had for Kate Pankoke’s dress. As expected, Nina did not go easy on the critique, but Kate—this being her third time on the show—proves hard to knock down. READ FULL STORY

Twitter was not happy with Lifetime's Aaliyah biopic

Lifetime premiered their Aaliyah biopic, Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B, Saturday night — and Twitter responded with disappointment.

The film is based on Christopher John Farley’s Aaliyah: More than a Woman, a biography of the singer who died in 2001 at age 22. Lifetime’s project has been the subject of controversy since the beginning: Aaliyah’s parents, vocal about their disapproval of the film, prevented Lifetime from acquiring the rights to Aaliyah’s music – so none of the late singer’s songs are included in the movie.

Then Zendaya Coleman, who was set to play Aaliyah, dropped out in June amid criticism that her biracial heritage was not right for the role of a black woman. (Alexandra Shipp later took on the part.)

Between production holds and rights issues, the film’s existence is itself an accomplishment — but not exactly a quality one, according to watchers who took to Twitter to post their reactions.

'Project Runway All Stars' host Alyssa Milano talks season 4

Alyssa Milano admits she was nervous when hosting Project Runway All Stars for the first time last season—but all that’s behind her now. In season 4, which premieres Thursday, Oct. 30, she settles comfortably into her hosting and judging role—she even “gets into it” with fellow judge Isaac Mizrahi over a critique—even though she was eight months pregnant while filming the show. Here, Milano tells EW what it was like to tape the series (in heels no less), who her favorite guest judge was, and what to expect from this season… the best to date, according to Milano.

'Project Runway: Threads' react: A mini-me version without the bite

A few weeks ago I wished for a Project Runway with tweens, and then I got my wish in Project Runway: Threads. (I really should put my wishing powers to better use, but I can’t complain about getting Christian Siriano back on the small screen.)

Threads, the fourth spin-off of the franchise, is like Runway Lite. Each week, three tween aspiring designers will face off with two challenges; the first is a look that they prepared at home for immediate judging, the second is a typical “here are the rules, now go; oh, wait, there’s more” challenge. The winner takes home $25,000. READ FULL STORY

Lifetime to air fourth 'Flowers in the Attic' movie

Lifetime cannot get enough of Flowers in the Attic. After the success of the first film and its sequel, Petals on the Wind, Lifetime has greenlit Seeds of Yesterday, which, as fans of the books know, is the fourth installment in the series of novels from V.C. Andrews. Lifetime had previously set the premiere of the third chapter, If There Be Thorns.

Here’s the official description for Seeds of Yesterday: “The saga of the tormented Dollanganger family comes to an end in Seeds of Yesterday, based on the fourth and final book in V.C. Andrews’ series of novels that began with Flowers in the Attic.  In Seeds of Yesterday, the Dollangangers continue to coexist miserably, as their deeply troubled relationships, dark secrets and tragedy come to a head in a way that will haunt the family and its progeny forever.”

Jason Lewis and Rachael Carpani will reprise their roles as Christopher and Cathy Dollanganger from If There Be Thorns, with James Maslow on board as Bart Dollanganger. Shawn Ku (Beautiful Boy) will direct the film from the script written by Darren Stein (Jawbreaker).

Seeds of Yesterday is set for a 2015 release.

'Project Runway All Stars' trailer reveals a drama-filled fourth season

PROJECT-RUNWAY-TRAILER.jpg

What happens when you fill a design room with mean girls, whiners, the original costume designer (you know who I mean), a couple winners, and a few other barely memorable placeholders? Project Runway All Stars season 4 happens.

This exclusive trailer for the fourth season promises all the tears, catfights, over-the-top runway shows, and Alyssa Milano one can expect from All Stars. Highlights include a bride challenge—where someone is possibly married on the runway?—a Wicked challenge (sadly with no Idina Menzel or Kristin Chenoweth in sight), a trip to London, and some tough critique from judge Isaac Mizrahi. Hope none of the designers expected things to be easier the second (or third) time around. READ FULL STORY

'Project Runway All Stars': The designers returning for season 4 are...

As hard as it is to get by without Heidi, Nina, and Tim, Project Runway: All Stars always helps to fill the perfectly designed hole in our hearts during breaks between Project Runway seasons. And if you’ve enjoyed the past few years of the flagship show, you’re in luck: The cast of All Stars season 4 of is heavy on designers from Runway‘s past few seasons.

The most notable designers include Chris March of season 4—recently picked by EW as the best season in Runway history—Jay Sario of season 7, and two past winners: Michelle Lesniak of season 11 and Dmitry Sholokhov of season 10. Hoping for at least one win is Kate Pankoke, who is getting her third chance to prove herself on the runway; she originally appeared in season 11, then was brought back for season 12 by a fan vote. Here are the rest of the competitors, grouped by season: READ FULL STORY

Brittany Murphy's father 'disgusted' by Lifetime biopic

Brittany Murphy’s father is speaking out about Lifetime’s upcoming biopic about the actress, and he’s not happy about it. In an interview with the Examiner, Angelo Bertolotti reportedly said, “I am disgusted and outraged that Lifetime decided to produce such a trashy project, defiling the memory of my beautiful, talented daughter, Brittany Murphy. Frankly, I am amazed at their audacity of calling it ‘a true story,’ without conducting any research or consulting with any members of the family.” READ FULL STORY

Lifetime suggests Brittany Murphy was murdered in new biopic trailer

LIFETIME-BRITTANY-MURPHY.jpg

Actress Brittany Murphy died of cardiac arrest in 2009, but the upcoming Lifetime movie about the star claims Murphy died of something other than heart problems.

In a trailer for the film, titled The Brittany Murphy Story, Murphy (played by Amanda Fuller) shields her eyes from camera flashes and fumbles with pill bottles as the title screen displays dramatic phrases like “afraid for her life” and “the suspects,” suggesting the film will focus on speculations that Murphy was murdered.

Fists fly in trailer for 'The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story'

What was it like to be a television star in the early 1990′s? Well, for the teens made popular by Saved By The Bell, it seems like it was complicated. And that’s exactly why Lifetime is premiering The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, a made-for-TV movie that tells the unauthorized behind-the-scenes story of fame at a young age.

In a new trailer for the film, we get an extended glimpse at some of the same hormone-induced drama featured in the movie’s first clip—only this time, there’s a motorcycle, a pool party, and at least one fist fight. Clearly, someone needs to call Mr. Belding.
