Look out for some new cattiness on the new season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” because two new women have joined the cast — one of which is former “The Young and the Restless” star Carlton Gebbia (formerly Carlton Elizabeth)!
The British designer — who briefly appeared on “Y&R” back in 1999, as well as in “Suddenly Susan” that same year — joins Peurto Rican model/actress Joyce Giraud for season four of the popular reality series, which premiered tonight on Bravo. She’s married to David Gebbia, owner of Stockcross Financial Services, and is said to be taken under Lisa Vanderpump’s wing on the show.
Below check out this racy trailer for the season to see Gebbia already causing trouble!
In addition to casting Michael Graziadei (“The Young and the Restless”, “American Horror Story”) in the pilot for “The Lottery” (Lifetime Casts Former ‘Restless’ and ‘American Horror’ Star in Pilot), Lifetime has also cast former “Guiding Light” and “Days of our Lives” actor Wes Ramsey in its other new pilot, “Deliverance Creek,” from Nicholas Sparks Productions and Warner Horizon. The series revolves around Lauren Ambrose (“Torchwood”, “Six Feet Under”) in the role of Belle, who becomes an outlaw after trying to save her family’s land from the corrupt parties looking to take control over it.
Ramsey is set to portray good guy Deputy Nate Cooper.
According to Deadline, Lifetime has cast Michael Graziadei (ex-Daniel Romalotti, “The Young and the Restless”; ex-Travis Wanderley, “American Horror Story”) in “The Lottery,” a new pilot the network is developing that hails from Warner Horizon. “Lottery” tells the story of a world where women are no longer having children, which leaves the human race on the brink of extinction. A national lottery is held after 100 embryos are later found to have been successfully fertilized.
Graziadei is set to play Kyle, described as a recovering alcoholic and single father of one of the last children born before new breaks of the new development.
Last week Friday Lifetime unexpectedly made the decision to bring back their once canceled, but now twice renewed hit series, “Drop Dead Diva,” for a sixth season set to premiere in 2014. Today, the network sadly opted not to do the same for “The Client List,” which stars Jennifer Love Hewitt as Riley Parks – a single mother of two who happens to make a whole lot of money as a prostitute.
The series – loosely based on the 2010 hit Lifetime original movie of the same name and inspired by a true story – will not return for a third season, confirms a Lifetime representative to Soap Opera Network.
As the promo indicates below, on Thursday, December 5 “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Jacqueline MacInnes Wood will take viewers on the ultimate adventure as she travels around the world as host of the new E! reality series, “Party On.” In the series, Wood is highlighted in such exotic locations as Sardinia, Ibiza, Hvar and Marbella, meeting several individuals in a world without limits. Activities Wood takes part include rock climbing, yachting, camel riding, jet skiing, NASCAR like racing, and much more.
Wood is reportedly set to return to “B&B” in the role of Steffy Forrester around the same time her E! series debuts, although a rep for the soap has yet to confirm such news to Soap Opera Network.
Just one year ago it seemed likely that “Drop Dead Diva” would end its run after just four seasons with a huge game changing cliffhanger. In the weeks and months following the October 2012 season finale, Lifetime announced it had canceled “Diva” as it reportedly did not fit within their “brand” of programming. When all seemed lost Sony Pictures Television, producers of the series, was able to work out a deal with Lifetime that allowed the show to return for a fifth season. Today Lifetime and Sony announced that “Diva” will return for a sixth season in 2014.
Former “Guiding Light” actress Cynthia Watros has been pulling double duty: Not only has the “Lost” alum been taping an upcoming three-day arc for “The Young and the Restless,” she’s also been gearing up to star in MTV’s pilot, “Finding Carter!”
Deadline first reported the news that the actress had landed the drama pilot, which centers on Carter, a happy teen whose life comes crumbling down when it’s discovered that her seemingly perfect mother actually abducted her! Watros (who’s no stranger to bad ass roles, having won an Emmy for her portrayal of “GL’s” psychotic character, Annie) stars as Carter’s biological mother, a tough-as-nails detective who’s hell bent on finding her daughter’s kidnapper.
For more on Watros’ busy schedule, including details on her November run as “Y&R’s” Kelly, stay tuned for an upcoming interview with the actress!
In case you haven’t planned out your primetime viewing schedule for this evening, you might want to check out “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Darin Brooks on tonight’s all new episode of ABC’s “Super Fun Night” starring Rebel Wilson.
In the episode entitled “Engagement Party,” Kimmie (Wilson) throws an engagement party for her sister Jazmine (Ashley Tisdale, pictured right alongside Brooks).
“Super Fun Night” airs at 9:30 PM ET/PT on ABC.
If you think the current story that “The Young and the Restless’” Christian LeBlanc (Michael Baldwin) is involved in is horrifying, you haven’t seen anything yet! The actor has been busy producing “Deadtime Stories,” a scary series for Nickelodeon starring himself and “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Ashley Jones (Bridget Forrester; ex-Megan Dennison, “Y&R”)!
With no word yet on whether or not “One Life to Live” will resume production any time soon, Josh Kelly (Cutter Wentworth) has decided to hit the ground in search of new projects — and lucky enough, he found one: A new Lifetime pilot titled “Unreal.”
