For those going to the convention - always a great chance to meet up with friends and see some very talented, entertaining people as a bonus.

Renee's movie Ghost Town will have it's premiere on Sunday 3 June and I'd like to wish Dean Teaster and all those associated with the film all the best!

New Lucy Interviews

  • Blogzarro Q&A: Lucy Lawless 29 May 2007 - Lucy Lawless has been proving that she’s much more than a warrior princess. She showed the world she could belt out tunes with the best of them after placing second on last season’s “Celebrity Duets.” She continued her brilliant role as the Cylon Number Three on the third season of “Battlestar Galactica.” And next up, she appears on Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” voices Wonder Woman in the animated movie “Justice League: The New Frontier,” and takes her singing career a step further with three shows in New York this weekend. It seems blondes really do have more fun. We recently chatted with Lucy and she gave us the scoop on a few things — including a possible return to “Battlestar Galactica”; working with Larry David; and doing a live-action Wonder Woman movie.

  • 60 SECONDS: Lucy Lawless - 29 May 2007 -  Actress Lucy Lawless came to stardom in the late 1990s as the eponymous heroine in Xena: Warrior Princess, an all-action spin-off from the Hercules TV show that also made Lawless a lesbian icon. Since then, she has appeared in The X-Files and Battlestar Galactica. She is embarking on a singing career. Xena series one and two are now available in a DVD box set. Read More

Lucy's NY Concert Update

The following was posted on the Official Lucy List by Sharon:

Here come the rehearsal clips for the Canal Room! This was the first time Lucy had sung these songs as she and Michael Orland, her musical director and arranger, came together to start working on the playlist. First up is "Take Your Breath Away." -- You're going to see quite a mix of songs over the coming days. Some made the cut, some didn't. And
from the sound of things, I think there will have to be more concerts so Lucy can sing all the songs she loves. Check out the Official Xena Fan Club page --  for more clips and more songs.

  • Well, found out Football Wives was not getting picked up as a last minute decision. Very disapointing. The good news is I did get to work one day on the pilot as a bar patron. A lot less glamorous than it sounds but still a wonderful day in my book! As many of you know I admire Lucy Lawless very much and have nothing but respect for her. So when I got booked on Football Wives I was extatic! This is how the day went... Read more.  - many thanks to Barbara Davies for the news

Lucy at REAF Benefit

Football Wives Fallout...

The outcry of ABC's decision not to pick up Football Wives has been met with disbelief (and not just from fans). There are also some suggestions/rumours/chat that TPTB may be trying to find a new home...keep your fingers crossed.

Lucy's conspiracy theory isn't so out there since many people are now voicing those same concerns. If ABC knew that having this show would annoy the heck out of the NFL (and it seems they have the NFL contract and the little darlings are so thin skinned that they find a campy drama too much for them...give me a break. Soccer didn't have a problem with Footballer Wives)..why did it give it a go ahead to film the pilot?

Something is not quite right here. Either someone at ABC is beyond dumb and heads will roll over this stupidity OR someone at ABC decided to nab the show before anyone else got it and thus they would have lost just seems so very very odd. I have zero knowledge of how it works in Hollywood but to someone living on the other side of the's just plain obscene about wasting so much money. Spending millions on a pilot, hiring some great actors and all that talent only to shelve it because they got weak at the knees when the NFL got all uppity? Didn't they know they had the NFL contract?

Check out the following news sites:

  • Barry White's My Space Blog on the non pickup and his thoughts about working on the show
  • Cyber Hermit ABC, NFL End FOOTBALL WIVES Season Before It Begins
    ...Various sources are indicating that word began filtering down to ABC
    from the gods at the NFL that they were not pleased. No, not pleased
    at all. They did not think that a fictional television show would
    create a good image for the league. Yeah, forget the fact that they
    have non-fictional players getting busted for drug use, spouse abuse,
    assault, weapons charges and DUIs. No, the NFL apparently was more
    concerned about the fictional acts of fictional characters in a
    fictional television show. Word came from the gods that they were
    displeased enough that their displeasure might influence future
    football contracts for ABC and ESPN, the sports sister of ABC. So, the
    mere mortals of ABC grabbed their balls, tucked them neatly into their
    bags, broke their date with "Football Wives" and cowered away....
  • Did NFL lean on ABC to scrub football soap?
    USA Today - USA
    We know that the cast included Ving Rhames, Lucy Lawless, James Van Der Beek and a real football wife, Holly Robinson Peete. ...
  • Wives Drop-Kicked Out of ABC

A Fond Farewell to the Gilmore Girls

Tonight I watched the series finale of one of my all time favourite shows The Gilmore Girls. I loved it's small town American quirkiness and the AMAZING characters. I was so sad to hear that this was going to be the final season and I won't be getting my Gilmore fix. NO more Lorelai, no more Rory, no more Luke, no more Sookie or Michel or Lane or Emily or that absolutely delightful Paris or kooky Kirk. No more Gilmore Girls.

I was also so glad that the show went out on a such a high. It was just a perfect ending. 

Thank you Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel and all the cast of this amazing show for 7 glorious seasons.

Football Wives Update...

The Jeers of the Week goes to ABC for not picking up Football Wives. Normally I wouldn't care if a soap got picked up or not (I don't watch them - soaps and reality TV - ick!) but this was Lucy in the lead role so I cared. Ah well what can you say. It was just not meant to be. We don't know what's in store for Lucy but we sure as heck will watch and follow her to find out. Upward and onward Lucy!

Lucy Interviews - 1996

  • Late Show With David Letterman 9 April 1996 - Lucy is "interviewed" by David Letterman which was rather short, lame and uninspiring. The interview covered Lucy's role on Xena, if kangaroos lived in New Zealand and if Lucy's family knew she played Xena. Letterman was rather dismissive in the whole "interview" and kudos to Lucy who was fun and put up with the silly "interviewer". This was Lucy's one and only appearance on the show.

New Lucy Message

There's a new Lucy message on her site:

  • I have been in a long dark tunnel. I really allowed myself to get drowned by world politics, the war in Iraq and our head-in-the-sand attitude to the health of Mother Earth. I have to say your birthday card and the Celebrate Lucy Birthday list, with all the kindnesses you fans have laid out upon our table, was a turning point for me. I want to thank you all for your incredible generosity. You guys had me bawling at my computer! How's that for cheering me up? I even recognise some of the names and was so pleased to find that I have such incredible fans spread right across the world, from Brazil, to England, to Aussie. God bless each and every one of you.

For Aussie Fans - 10th Anniversary DVD Set and a chance to win Xena's Sword

Pre-order the Xena Warrior Princess 10th Anniversary Collection and you’ll automatically go in the chance to win a Xena 10th Anniversary Gold Accented Warrior Sword! We've taken the beautiful warrior sword wielded by Xena herself and given the pommel and cross a stunning gold plate finish to celebrate 10 powerful years of "Xena: Warrior Princess". This sword's true beginnings are not known. There are stories, but we know that the true origins vanished the moment Xena emerged, beaten and dazed, from the physical and mental torture of Draco's Gauntlet. The secrets are hers alone, but as you wield this amazing Anniversary edition sword, you just might get a glimpse into the sword's past. Xena's profound, if not prophetic, words to Gabrielle are inscribed on the blade, in gold—perhaps as a warning to us all. As with each sword in the anniversary collection, the base of the blade is etched with a line of character-specific dialog, a detail that distinguishes it from any other in the world. - Many thanks to Bradley for the news

Football Wives

  • Hollywood Reporter - 7 May 2007 -- ABC, which is rumored to pick up four to six one-hour pilots, is said to be proceeding with high-level staffing on two dramas, "Pushing Daisies" and the untitled Jon Feldman project -- a sign that the shows might be joining the "Grey's Anatomy" spinoff on the schedule next season. Also hot is drama "Marlowe," which recently received an order for two additional scripts and is now lining up series directors, as well as "Dirty Sexy Money." "Cashmere Mafia," "Eli Stone" and "Football Wives" also are believed to be in contention. "Sam I Am," "Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office," "The Thick of It" and "The Middle" are getting buzz on the comedy side. Read more...
