BREAKING DAWN Star Taylor Lautner is "Out and Proud"?!!?

The Twilight Saga star, Taylor Lautner has revealed to People Magazine that he is gay....

READ FOR MORE INFO........

Lautner was born on February 11, 1992 in Grand Rapids, Michigan to Deborah and Daniel Lautner. His mother works for a software development company, while his father is a Midwest Airlines pilot. He has one younger sister named Makena. Raised as a Roman Catholic, Lautner is of mixed German, French, and Dutch heritage, and has "distant" Native American ancestry (specifically Ottawa and Potawatomi) through his mother. Lautner grew up in Hudsonville, Michigan, a suburb of Grand Rapids........blahblah.....

"On Tuesday, People magazine told Gossip Cop that a fraudulent cover sweeping the internet
featuring heartthrob Taylor Lautner coming out as a gay man is one huge hoax.

People Magazine spokeswoman Julie Farin told the site, "The cover in question is 100 percent fake. This began as a ridiculous Twitter joke that went viral."

Dated January 7, 2012, the faux cover quickly went viral right after Christmas. It claimed that the 19 year-old "Twilight" star (who previously dated country singer Taylor Swift) was "tired of rumors..." and that he "opens up about his decision to finally come out."

The doctored cover was well-designed enough to fool many people -- even such celebs as Hip-Hop mogul Russell Simmons who tweeted his congratulations to Lautner for being brave and coming out.
He soon realized it was a hoax and tweeted, "Disappointed that people would joke about someone coming out about their sexuality. Let Taylor Lautner be whoever he wants to be..."

Lautner's rep did not respond to Reuters requests for comment. Of late, social media hoaxes are becoming all too common. Last week, a twitter death hoax claiming rock singer Jon Bon Jovi had died took the interwebs by storm -- so much so that the rocker had to post a photo of himself on Facebook to prove he was alive. 

The authors of the Lautner hoax are not known." From nj.com!!

HAHAHAHA!!! OK, so sorry if anyone nearly had a heart attack over this, but I had to post it!! It was too funny....

Just to push the point, this is not true....Taylor Lautner has not come out of the closet and has not revealed that he is gay. It was a joke. A clever joke by someone with a lot of time on their hands, but a joke non-the-less...

Thoughts???

AMERICAN HORROR STORY Season Two Gets A WHOLE NEW CAST!!!??!

American Horror Story is without a doubt, the best new show of the season and is def one of my all-time favorite shows!

The season has been amazing, filled with spook and drama, mystery and the best type of cheesyness possible! It really has been a great show and though its not book related, I really just wanted to share the news of season two!

Entertainment Weekly Inside TV Reports:

"Attention American Horror Story fans: hope you didn’t get too attached to the Harmon mansion and most of its inhabitants. Creator Ryan Murphy told reporters today that season 2 of the hit FX drama will begin with a new locale and a (mostly) new cast.

That means fans may — or may not — get another fix from stars like Jessica Lange, Dylan McDermott, and Connie Britton when the drama returns next year. “Some of them will be coming back,” Murphy teased during a teleconference today. “I’m talking to several of them and we’re in negotiations. There will be familiar faces, but there will also be new faces on the show.”
Murphy hopes to announce the new storyline and cast in February.

Should some of the first season actors return for another round of AHS episodes, they’ll be “playing completely different characters, creatures, and monsters,” Murphy added. ”It’s a really fun idea to do an anthology show. That’s the way it was designed from the beginning. Every season, there will be a new haunting and we’ll have a new overriding theme.”


The drama’s unique mission has made it easier to attract top talent, Murphy acknowledged. He’s heard from many film stars who like the idea of not having to commit to so many seasons. “When we met with Connie, Dylan, and Jessica, they were interested because the story had a beginning, middle and an end. Connie just came off of Friday Night Lights and was not interesting in going back into the grind of a 5-year commitment. When I told her she only had to do a 1-year run, she was excited by that.”

Added Murphy, “I would have all of them back in a heartbeat to play someone completely different.”
But the mansion is definitely history, Murphy admitted. The set was already struck to move “onward and upward.” So long, original craftsman fixtures and solid oak floors!

The AHS finale on Wednesday averaged 4.4 million viewers, making it the most watched episode of the series. The show is currently tied with TNT’s Falling Skies as the No. 1 new show among adults 18-49 this year. It’s already the highest-rated first season show in FX’s history.

FX notes that AHS performed 50 percent better than Murphy’s last creation, Nip/Tuck."

I loved all of the characters and will really, really miss having them around! The idea of this house being a gateway to Hell, was so creepy and interesting and could have last many seasons, but the anthology series idea is pretty darn original and awesome!

Constance and Violet and all of the random, awesome scary ghost were so great! I hope, hope, hope that season two will be just as awesome!

Thoughts??

Did you watch AHS??

Don't ya love it??

I am currently reading The Selection by Kiera Cass!!

"For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in the palace and compete for the heart of the gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself- and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined."

Magnus Bane is NOT in MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES Film!?!?!?!?!

The Fablife.com reports:

"It’s been more than six months since Jamie Campbell Bower was announced to play Jace, opposite Lily Collins’ Clary, in City of Bones, the first movie adaptation of Cassandra Clare‘s The Mortal Instruments series. After that, there seemed to be no forward progress in bringing demon-killing Shadowhunters to the big screen. What gives? Clare herself stopped by the VH1 offices last week while promoting Clockwork Prince, book two in Mortal Instruments prequel series The Infernal Devices, and gave us a very good reason for the movie’s delay: The original script didn’t stay true to the books.

“Nobody could settle on a script that they liked, and so there was a lot of back-and-forthing, and finally, it came down from the head of the studio [Screen Gems] that she wanted the script rewritten,” Cassie told TheFABlife. “She didn’t feel like it stuck close enough to the book. I kind of agreed with her. There were some characters that were taken out and things that were switched around, and it was very different from City of Bones.”

They brought Pretty Little Liars screenwriter Marlene King onboard to rewrite the whole darn thing, bringing back more of Clare’s characters and giving it a “great teen voice,” Clare said.

Of course, no screenplay is going to match the book word-for-word, so we wondered what was most important to Clare as she sees her books adapted. “I really want them to stay true to the relationships between the characters,” she explained. “Jace’s relationship to his adoptive family was really important. I feel like the whole twist with Jace and Clary and their relationship was really important and guides the next two books, and you can’t really take it out. It’s so taboo at the same time, but they’re just going with it. That’s what makes these books.”

One of the biggest disappointments in the first script was that warlock Magnus was left out entirely, despite the fact that he has a pivotal role later on, particularly as boyfriend to young Shadowhunter Alec. “That’s one of the things Marlene really got. In the interactions between Alec and Magnus, you can see their burgeoning relationship, which I think is really nice,” she said. “I really wanted them to keep the positive portrayal of gay characters, and the gay relationship was important and relatable and went along with everybody else’s relationships.”

King recently turned in revamp the script, and Clare said she’s pleased with it.

“I’ve got my fingers crossed,” she said. “Now, all the producers have to sign off on the rewrite and if they’re happy with it then we move forward. They still want to shoot early next spring, so they’re going to have to go bang, bang, bang with casting and everything like that.”

Clare estimates that we’re probably going to see a spring/summer 2013 release date instead of the previous goal of 2012. In the meantime, however, we’ve got plenty of Shadowhunter books to read and reread. Come back to TheFABlife tomorrow for more from Clare on Clockwork Prince, Infernal Devices movies and what will come after both series’ conclusions."

Can you believe this???

It is really, really stupid that the studio/writers would even consider getting rid of main characters, especially someone as pivotal as Magnus Banes!

What are your thoughts??

Paramount to Make DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONES by Laini Taylor into a Film?!?!?

Paramount Pictures is planning an adaptation of Laini Taylor's fantasy novel, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Deadline reports. Planned as a trilogy, the first book was released this past September and is officially described on Taylor's site as follows:

Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages--not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.

When one of the strangers--beautiful, haunted Akiva--fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?


Nothing is official as of yet, but the studio is likely eyeing Taylor's novel as a potential franchise.

Thoughts??
