TV Guide’s Matt Roush trashed Sunday night’s hyped Lifetime movie:
An epic of pathetic miscasting, Lifetime’s laughably inept and stunningly cynical biopic Liz & Dick isn’t on a first-name basis with anything resembling humanity.”
Lifetime’s powerhouse drama “Army Wives” celebrates its 100th episode on Sunday, and as much as we like the well-acted show, we dig this sexy poster even more. Sally Pressman, Catherine Bell, Kim Delaney, Brigid Brannagh and Wendy Davis posing in camouflage body paint below the words “They can’t hide their pride.”
“Army Wives” completes its sixth season in three more episodes and there’s been no word on a seventh season.

Lifetime — the network that has been showing off Jennifer Love Hewitt and her cleavage on the campy “The Client’s List” — gets serious Thursday night with the debut of “The Conversation With Amanda De Cadenet.
De Cadenet, a British TV personality and photographer, created this celebrity women-only, issues-based interview series (executive produced by Demi Moore.) Thursday’s guests are Gwyneth Paltrow, Jane Fonda, Zoë Saldana, and Sarah Silverman. They discuss sex, death, and politics.
De Cadenet told Forbes how the show came about:
Out of my own need to hear stories about women that were honest, authentic and solution-based. I couldn’t find role models that I could look to and say ‘If she made it through, then I can.’ And when I say ‘made it through’ I am talking about the many aspects of a woman’s life, from the joyful to the sad, challenging, confusing, liberating…all of it.”
Altogether, de Cadenet interviewed 30 celebrities including Olivia Wilde, Miley Cyrus, Donna Karan and Eva Longoria.

The Lindsay Lohan comeback train rolls on with the news, after months of speculation, that the controversial actress will portray Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime film about her love affair with actor Richard Burton. ”Liz & Dick” is set to begin production in early June. No word on who will play Burton or when the film will air.
Every royal wedding deserves a TV movie, and Lifetime is gearing up to tell the romantic story of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The television movie is set to air in mid-April. The wedding is slated for April 29.
Lifetime has cast William (relative unknown Nico Evers-Swindell) and Prince Charles (Ben Cross) but hasn’t announced an actress to play Middleton. USA Today is running a poll (eight well-known actresses) with Minka Kelly, the early leader, slightly ahead of Mandy Moore and Olivia Wilde.
