Carrie Ann posted some disappointing news at her twitter last night. Her new TV project (that she’s been working on for months) “Grace” didn’t get picked up by ABC for the Fall 2011 Season. Eric Roberts (one of my favorite actors) was to lead the cast in this new drama about a dysfunctional family in the world of professional dance. Roberts is to have said he thought Grace could become a “gigantic hit“. He had this to say on the project as well…
“All I can do is say it’s probably the best thing, as a whole unit of production, that I’ve been involved in since 1983″
Like Eric, I thought “Grace” was a brilliant idea and I was so looking forward it. What are ABC execs thinking? I guess they’d rather have crime shows instead.
Anyway, when you get a chance and if you have a twitter account, be sure to send Carrie Ann some love. I’m sure she is really disappointed.
Sad News today: GRACE did not get picked up today. I thank everyone who helped us create the pilot..the cast and crew – I Love you all!!!
Just a few things to share today! First up, Carrie Ann was interviewed about her new hour long TV drama on ABC called “Grace” by Popstop which premieres in May. “We’re going to take them [the audience] into the studio and show a little bit more about the dancer’s life”, Carrie Ann comments. This is sounding really good so far in my opinion.
Did any of you see Louis’ tweets lastnight? He tweeted he had a meeting at the CBS lot(where they film the show) and then he tweeted this…
Fun casual meeting. Around feb 18!!!!!I’ll find out
Feb. 18th is coming right up, Guys, and hopefully, we will find out which pros will be dancing.
People.com has a new article with Cheryl up today in promotion for her new book “Dancing Lessons” being released in February. She discusses a little about being molested. Here is an excerpt from the on-line story. More in the new issue of PEOPLE on news stands Friday.
“I’m telling my story,” says Burke, 26, who opens up about the molestation – and other struggles, including physical abuse by two former boyfriends – in her new book Dancing Lessons, (coauthored by PEOPLE senior writer Monica Rizzo). “They’re not secrets. There’s no shame.”
Burke’s abuser was a retired mailman who was trusted and well liked in Burke’s Bay Area community. He would sometimes pick Burke up from school and do odd jobs around her home. The assaults began when she was 5.
After he was accused of targeting other children, Burke acknowledged her own abuse. But, still reeling from her parents’ split when she was a baby, she was wracked with confusion.
“I felt guilty for wanting his love and affection,” she says, calling testifying against him “the hardest thing I’ve ever done … I saw his face and lawyers were asking me these questions and I was like, ‘What am I doing? Did he even do anything wrong?’ ”
Eventually, with the man in prison and years of therapy, Burke came to see just how wrong her abuser was.
Now, with season 12 of DWTS beginning in March, Burke is ready to tell her story. “If I can help just one person,” she says, “for me that’s all that matters.”
There have been some new “Footloose” movie stills released at Fused Film. You can see one of them below of Julianne. More at the link.
I’m excited for this new remake. So, do you remember where you saw the original “Footloose” movie? I remember seeing it at the time of it’s release in Cheyenne, Wy. I liked it, but, not as much as Flashdance and Dirty dancing. How about you?
