Now that I’m back from New York, the only real news is that I’m continuing to work hard on the book. (...) The heightened security restrictions on the airlines in August made the journey back from New York interesting, as I refused to be parted from the manuscript of book seven (a large part of it is handwritten, and there was no copy of anything I had done while in the US). They let me take it on, thankfully, bound up in elastic bands. I don’t know what I would have done if they hadn’t; sailed home, probably.
I am currently trying to decide between two possible titles.
Lindsay Lohan, please, put some fucking underwear on. Honestly, we’ve seen more than enough! On the bright side, she does keep her vajayjay in very good shape...
Mean Girls star Lindsay has behaved like a prima donna since arriving in the UK. But when my snapper caught the serial flasher outside London’s Kabaret club in a skirt leaving nothing to the imagination, I decided enough was enough and had a large pair of Bridget Jones’ knickers sent round to her hotel. Earlier this month she showed her all on a boat in Venice. Put it away, love...
I love Jennifer Aniston! Yes, she can’t act worth a damn, the poor thing, but neither can I—of course I’m not making millions of “not being able to act” but what the hell. Anyway, what really matters is that she has THE most wonderful clothes and shoes EVAH! Not to mention the hair. I’d become her lesbian lover if: a) she’d be willing to share all the stuff in her closets with me, and b) if I were like a size—oh, I dunno, zero?—and my feet weren’t HUGE size tens. *sigh*
Even in Hollywood—land of breast implants and botox—natural counts for something. So says People magazine, which on Wednesday said Jennifer Aniston topped its list of best-dressed women of 2006 for her natural fashion sense.
I can’t say I’m the biggest Nora Roberts fan that ever lived (actually I’d be surprised if I made the top million) but I think getting some of her books made into movies by Lifetime Television is a pretty neat deal. The fact that I haven’t read any of these novels (and hadn’t even heard of two) makes no difference to my giddy excitement for her.
Okay, I’m sorry, that last sentence was a total lie. What the fuck books are these? I only own Montana Sky and have yet to read it. Why couldn’t she sell the ones I’ve read? What a horrible woman she is, grrr. Honest Illusions would make a great movie, but does she think about me when she has to make these choices? NO!
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with publishing and Hollywood legends Nora Roberts and Peter Guber,” said Walton. “Selling an average of 21 books every minute, Nora’s talent is endless and the American public cannot get enough of her work. The piece de resistance is that we have Peter and Stephanie’s tremendous talent to help us bring Nora’s great storytelling to life.” Peter Guber, Chairman and CEO of Mandalay Entertainment Group, said, “Building this exciting filmed franchise by combining Lifetime’s powerful brand with Nora Roberts, a stratospheric author, will create a compelling entertainment experience.” Germain, President of Stephanie Germain Productions, added, “Nora’s books are a perfect match with Lifetime’s commitment to bring inspirational women’s stories to their audience.”
Bestselling titles presently being developed for the four movies include: Blue Smoke, Carolina Moon, Montana Sky, The Villa, Brazen Virtue and River’s End.
