InsideTV Podcast: Norman Reedus previews season 4 of 'The Walking Dead': 'They've introduced a way to make the zombies scary again'

We still have over four months until the return of The Walking Dead, but it’s never too early to check in with one of the survivors as to what’s going on and what to expect. Daryl Dixon himself, Norman Reedus, called in from Senoia, Georgia (where the show is filming) to talk to Jenna Morasca and me on EW’s SiriusXM channel and update us on the progress of season 4. “The scripts this season are just amazing,” says Reedus. “It feels like we’ve shot about three movies already. It’s super intense.”

Reedus also backs up exec producer Gale Anne Hurd’s comment about the zombies becoming more of a threat when the show returns. “They’ve introduced a way to make the zombies scary again,” he says. “They’re terrifying. The new threat is just unreal.” Reedus also tells people not to worry about the show now being on its third showrunner in four seasons, with Scott Gimple replacing Glen Mazzara (who replaced Frank Darabont). “The structure of the writing is a bit different,” says Reedus. “It’s so intense. These are our best scripts so far.” To listen to our entire interview with Norman Reedus, just click on the audio player below.

But that’s not all. Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany called in to EW Radio before the BBC America clone drama’s season finale to chat with Jessica Shaw and me about playing seven different distinctive characters — often in the same scene. What was her audition like? Which clone is her favorite to play? What music does she listen to in order to get in the mood for each character? And which clone is most like the actress herself? Fans of the show will definitely want to check out our chat with Tatiana.

Last but not least, the evil genius behind The Bachelor and Bachelorette, Mike Fleiss, called in to talk about the new season, unfortunate white boy rapping, the differences between the two franchises, and dealing with spoilers. He also broke some news: Bachelor Pad may be back in 2014! Find out why it’s taking the summer off in 2013 but should return next year. READ FULL STORY

What to expect (or not expect) on 'The Bachelorette: Ashley and J.P.'s Wedding'

On Sunday, reality TV fans are invited to the third ceremony in Bachelor franchise history — The Bachelorette: Ashley and J.P.’s Wedding (ABC, 9 p.m. ET). In a conference call with reporters today, newlyweds Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum shared a few details on what viewers may or may not see during their Mindy Weiss-planned Pasadena nuptials:

You will see: Chris Harrison officiating. “Chris Harrison was really our first choice,” Rosenbaum said. “He has been there from the very beginning, when Ashley was obviously on Brad [Womack’s] season and then throughout our season. He’s seen our good sides, our bad sides. Even off the show, we see him when he’s in New York. We have a really great relationship, and it just all made sense to come full circle and to have Chris Harrison up there with us.” The couple wrote their own vows. “You’ll definitely see some tears, but not as many as you might think,” Hebert said. “We were pretty composed.”

You won’t see: Chris Harrison ruling the dance floor. Though apparently, he did. “There was a moment where Chris Harrison and one of the producers tied their ties together and created a limbo for everybody. You definitely won’t see that. But that was a really fun part of the night,” Hebert said. “Babe, I have a picture of that, actually,” Rosenbaum added. “I think we’ll release that at some point,” Hebert joked.  READ FULL STORY

'Bachelorette' Ashley Hebert's wedding will be televised

For fans still reeling from Emily and Jef’s breakup this should help lessen the sting: Bachelorette Ashley Hebert’s upcoming wedding to J.P. Rosenbaum will be televised on ABC, the network announced today.

Hebert, who chose love with Rosenbaum during her cycle of the dating show in August 2011, will participate in a whole wedding extravaganza. The special will include dress fittings, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and of course the big day itself. The best part? The ceremony is being officiated by Chris Harrison.

Hebert is the second Bachelorette to make it to the altar. Funnily enough, Trista Sutter, who was the first, also filmed her wedding for a television special, as did Bachelor Jason Mesnick. If it ain’t broke…

The Bachelorette: Ashley and J.P.’s Wedding will air Dec. 16 from 9-11 p.m.

Emily Maynard and Jef Holm of 'Bachelorette' end engagement

The rumors are true: Emily Maynard is once again a bachelorette. She and fiancé Jef Holm, whom she met on the latest season of ABC’s The Bachelorette, have broken off their engagement.

Maynard and Holm each released statements about the split to People. Here’s what Maynard had to say:

I am sorry to tell you that Jef and I have, indeed, parted ways. It was a very difficult and heartbreaking decision.

As you know, at first I wasn’t sure that I should even be The Bachelorette, but I am a hopeless romantic and I do believe in the show. I have no regrets because I did find love and shared an incredible journey with a really special person – and you know what, we tried our best because the love between us was so real.

I have nothing but respect and love for Jef and his family, but ultimately we are just at different points in our lives.  I’ve learned so much and I’m grateful for all of the support I’ve received. I’m excited and hopeful for the next chapter in my life with my daughter, Ricki. I do hope that you will respect our privacy and allow us the time we need to heal.

And here’s Holm’s statement:  READ FULL STORY

Did Reality Steve spoil another 'Bachelorette' finale?

On the fan site Reality Steve — a blog run by Steve Carbone that largely seeks to spoil the outcome on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette — a July 3 post reveals who Emily Maynard will allegedly choose in the July 22 finale on the ABC dating show. Citing no sources, Carbone says it took him “six weeks to get it confirmed, but by golly, I’m finally glad I did.”

“The live finale will NOT be Emily making her final decision, or pulling a Jen Scheft and choosing no one, or saying ‘no.'” Carbone writes. “They’re engaged.”

Did Carbone violate the terms of his recent settlement with Warner Bros.-owned NZK Prods and Alternative TV, which sued Carbone in December for soliciting information from The Bachelor cast and crew? One of the apparent terms was that Carbone agreed “to have no further contact whatsoever with any of the cast, crew or employees of The Bachelor,” according to a statement by a studio spokesperson.

But Carbone, in an email to EW, said, “None of my sources are cast and crew.” He also said he has not heard from the studio since publishing the alleged spoiler on his blog earlier this week.

A Warner Bros. spokeswoman declined to comment.

It’s unclear whether Carbone’s most recent spoiler is correct, but he’s been right in the past. Meanwhile, Carbone posted this on Twitter after the settlement with the studio was reached: “Long story short: isn’t going anywhere, I don’t owe the other side a penny, and they had no case.”

'Bachelorette': Emily's hometown date with Jef and his highest hair ever -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO


On Monday’s episode of The Bachelorette, we’ll see Emily travel to the hometowns of her four remaining suitors. Below is a clip of her visit to St. George, Utah, with growing fan favorite — or is he just mine? — Jef. Jef has made it clear that he’ll break up with a woman if his parents don’t think she’s a good match for him. Luckily, they are still rather vaguely “committed to some stuff” in South Carolina and won’t be at the family ranch. Instead, she meets Jef’s siblings and worries that they won’t like her because Jef refuses to touch her once they enter the gate. Watch a clip below. READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelorette': Alessandro reveals his vampire hunting skills -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Last week’s episode of The Bachelorette featured lots of shocking moments: Tony’s emotional breakdown over missing his son, Ryan’s ill-conceived declaration that he wouldn’t “love on” Emily as much if she gained weight after they were married, and Alessandro’s language-barrier-fueled admission that he views the idea of becoming a husband and a stepfather a “compromise.” But something even more jaw-dropping took place within the walls of the Potential Husband Plantation… Let’s hear Emily tell it (from her blog): READ FULL STORY
