Veronica in Five Years (Or Next Season)?

Just as all shows start their last episodes before saying goodbye for another season, one is struggling to have its head honchos convinced that they need one more season. It may be a leap of faith on my behalf but Rob Thomas gave us a sliver of hope through Kristin V on E!Online.

If you're as hopeful as I am, see what the mastermind wants you to know and what you can do to keep the show going (crossing fingers involved).

Bumbershoot 2007

I have to admit I miss being in the Pacific West Coast. Bumbershoot was a concert experience I miss. I love the musical talent, the artists that hang out, food and people galore. If that's not enough, there are movies, movies and movies! The whole event is an experience to behold.

So... if you're in and about the Emerald City (specifically the Seattle Center) around the first to third of September, join in the festivities!

For more information, check out the Bumbershoot's myspace page. If the lineup doesn't get you, consider yourself outdated.

Gilmore Girls, Veronica Mars and Another Actor in Rehab

It's Wednesday and here's the scoop from Ausiello. I've copied down the GG and VM news. More on his site for Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy and Supernatural scoop.

Again, thanks Mike!

Question: Thanks for keeping us updated on the nail-biting situation that is Gilmore Girls' possible eighth season. Please give us the latest update, even if it's that things are the same.— Heather M.

Ausiello: The 13-episode deal should've been signed, sealed and delivered by now. Something's obviously holding up the works. Maybe Sally Struthers is playing hardball.

Question: Can you please tell us in what episode and in what situation Luke and Lorelai will kiss after a year apart?— Audrey

Ausiello: God, you guys are an impatient bunch. (Spoiler alert) It happens in the season finale shortly after Luke single-handedly prevents Rory's graduation party from becoming a total washout. Do you also want to know how much tongue there is?

Question: I've been dying without Veronica Mars since it's gone on hiatus. Could you please give me some scoop on the new episodes?— Courtney

Ausiello: As I mentioned in the latest Ausiello Report vodcast, I've seen the next two episodes, and I'm ready to declare the new self-contained mystery experiment a resounding success. Not only does the new format rock, but I actually prefer it to the season-long arcs. And it's not like the show's serialized nature has been completely abandoned. Far from it. The continuing saga that is Veronica's love life actually gets extra play in these episodes. Major developments abound, and, strangely, most of them seem to occur in or around elevators.

Question: Your spoiler last week about Veronica telling Logan he's out of her life forever was unsettling.— Joan

Ausiello: No worries. After you watch the first two episodes, I have a feeling you'll be following my lead and switching to Team Pizonica. If their big kiss on May 1 doesn't win you over, the final scene on May 8 ought to do the trick.

Question: Any truth to the rumor that the CW did not jump for Veronica Mars' FBI scenario?— Lori

Ausiello: No truth whatsoever, actually. As I reported in the Ausiello Report, Mars' main man Rob Thomas was baffled by Enrico Colantoni's assertion that Dawn Ostroff rejected the FBI idea. I think his exact words were, "I have no earthly idea what Enrico is talking about." As Rob pointed out, the CW doesn't see (or hear) his pitches for next season until May 2.

Now for something completely different.

I tried doing what Stephen King did: naming as many actors that had gone to rehab while playing Amy Winehouse's song "Rehab". Here's the latest addition courtesy of IMDB.

Rhys Meyers Checks Into Rehab

Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers has checked into rehab for alcohol abuse. The Tudors hunk, 29, entered an unspecified facility in the US earlier this week, his representative Meredith O'Sullivan has confirmed to America's People magazine. O'Sullivan says, "After a non-stop succession of filming Jonathan Rhys Meyers has entered an alcohol-treatment program. He felt a break was needed to maintain his recovery. Jonathan plans to resume his schedule following completion." Rhys Meyers has just finished filming August Rush opposite Terrence Howard and Robin Williams in New York City. The Dublin-born actor was arrested in January 2005 alongside then-girlfriend Reena Hammer under suspicion of assault and possession of cannabis. Charges against Rhys Meyers were later dropped. He referred to the incident as a "screaming match", which neighbors misheard as a physical fight.

BTW, the other actors I came up with are:

Drew Barrymore
Mel Gibson
Colin Farrell
Britney Spears
Lindsay Lohan
Kate Moss

Who can you come up with?

Another Gilmore Girls Scoop

I swear I need to be paid to keep tabs on this show. :D

Here's something to "hmmm" about.

Thanks again to Ausiello and his moles for giving us this scoop.

A Peek Into Mars on May 1st!

Here's what you can expect of the first stand alone mystery Veronica must solve before the season ends.

There Is a God!

Since I've been on a 3-month "vacation", I've had the opportunity to watch evening TV. I haven't been given this opportunity since October 2002 so it was almost a Christmas present of sorts, especially from someone who loves primetime TV.

So imagine my surprise when 2 shows I don't watch did the inevitable.

Clyde Drexler got eliminated from Dancing with the Stars.

Sanjaya got eliminated from American Idol.


Once Heather Mills gets eliminated from Dancing With the Stars (I think she gets pity votes since she's as stiff as starched outfits when she performs), I'll think the world will be back in order.

Man, if this could happen, we might be able to vote for a smarter president and get world peace up and running.

Here's to all things normal!

Ausiello Scoop: The Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars Edition

It's refreshing to see the newest episode of Gilmore Girls. Seven years and running, I still cannot tolerate Taylor Doose. Why is that?

Anywhoo, here's the scoop from the Ausiello Report. Much more at the site but I just wanted to highlight the Gilmore Girls drama and what we're to expect at the land of Mars.

My big question: if V is going to say goodbye to Logan, does that mean he won't be around for next year's flash forward???

Question: I'm excited to hear about the possible shortened eighth season of Gilmore Girls. Got anything new to report on that front?— Heather

Ausiello: At the show's wrap party Sunday night, everyone and their sister was talking about the short order as if it was a done deal. The only sticking point appears to be the number of episodes. I'm hearing 13, but I imagine the CW is trying to stretch that to at least 16. An official announcement is imminent.

Question: Do you know anything about the season/series finale of Gilmore Girls?— Jeremy
Ausiello: I know that the townsfolk throw Rory a massive graduation party since most of them couldn't get tix to the real ceremony. I also know that the final scene features three characters and, per one source, "brings the show full circle."

Question: You rarely talk about Veronica Mars anymore. What gives? Please tell me you have some info about the upcoming five episodes.— Mary Wakefield
Ausiello: LoVe 'shippers, this is the time in "Sprockets" when you shield your eyes: In the May 29 season finale, Veronica tells Logan that he's out of her life forever.
Question: Damnit, man! You've neglected Veronica Mars fans for too long! Give us some scoop or I will dismember a Smurf doll.— Stephanie
Ausiello: How many times do I have to tell you people?! Threatening violence against the Smurfs will get you nowhere in this column!

Question: Please, Michael, give us some scoop on Veronica Mars. Anything, I beg of you. — Alvim
Ausiello: Begging, on the other hand, will get you everywhere. Two characters we haven't seen in quite some time will be featured prominently in the finale. And their names are *ak* K*** and *l*ren** *ied*an. (Yes, I'm aware I made that ridiculously easy. I give you gifts. Learn to accept them.)

==> Those wondering: it's Jake Kane and Deputy Leo (Max Greenfield, who also plays Alexis' assistant in Ugly Betty)

SPOILERS (and Another Hint of GG's Demise)

Courtesy of Kristin V of E!Online.

Here's the juicy stuff I got covering Ugly Betty, Veronica Mars (squee!!!) and Gilmore Girls (sob):

Daniela in Brazil: Any news on Bette la Fea?
Claro que sim! The next new episode of Ugly Betty, which airs this week, is fantastic. You must watch. There's a surprise wedding proposal (not a good surprise), and there's a surprise twist to Daniel's latest conquest (again, not a good surprise). Plus, two characters who haven't hooked up before will hook up! And Betty will endure two breakups (not of the romantic nature) before the week is up. (Sniffle.) It's a juicy little ep.

Carl in Phoenix: What's the word on Veronica Mars?
Looks like a few old friends will come back for the finale. As I told you a few weeks back, Max Greenfield (Deputy Leo, who also has a hilarious comeback on this week's Ugly Betty as Amanda sinks her claws in to try and take his job), will return to Veronica for at least one episode, including the season finale. And Jake Kane will also be back! Now, as long as this isn't a fond farewell finale and just a season finale, I'm all for this. Oh, and by the way, I hear that if Veronica were to continue, Rob Thomas is interested in doing a storyline between Deputy Leo and Daddy Mars—yet another reason to renew.

Glo in Boston: Any scoop on Gilmore Girls? Any gossip on it coming back? Some say yes, others say no.
You aren't going to like this (sorry, it's hard for me to report!) but I think you can add Damian Pelliccione into the "no" column. He has a small part on the show as Rory's friend Lance, and at the GLAAD Awards, he said: "I have one or two more episodes and that's it; my character dies off—no, doesn't die really, just the show's dying. And you'll see a lot of switching between Rory and Lorelai's character toward the end—it's a big juxtaposition. I can't give too much away, but you really see Rory grow up and mature by the end of this season."

Here's the link to Ausiello's version of the GG drama.

04/05 - Lorelai stops into Luke's diner for breakfast for the first time since their break-up, but finds they are awkward and uncomfortable together. Later, Lorelai's Jeep breaks down and she asks Luke to help her shop for a new car. While they look at cars, Lorelai and Luke's irritation with one another finally explodes into a fight, which Lorelai secretly takes as a good sign. Meanwhile, Paris gets accepted to numerous law schools and medical schools, and decides she must break up with Doyle (guest star Danny Strong) so their relationship won't influence her choice of a graduate school.

Emily and Richard were also there. Madeleine didn't notice Sookie, Luke, or anyone else in the "friends" category but that doesn't mean they won't attend. When Rory and Logan break up, Rory will still be in her graduation garb and will hand him back a black ring box. He takes it and walks away. Source: SpoilerFix BuddyTV Spoilers Chat

General Spoilers:

04/04 - SpoilerFix.com visitor, MacKenzie, emailed us some spoilers after going on a WB VIP set tour. "We saw that Lorelai's doll house, that she so loved that we saw in an episode many many moons ago that Richard brought her, was all smashed up is if it had been thrown or something hit it when we toured the set of Richard and Emily's house! Also, Richard and Emiy's house had a "For Sale" sign posted on the front of their house by the front door!" Source: SpoilerFix BuddyTV Spoilers Chat
