Shondaland’s Betsy Beers Inspires During Marie Claire’s New Guard Lunch

On Thursday, Marie Claire held its second annual New Guard luncheon at the Hearst Tower, honoring 50 “badass innovators, mogulistas and shot callers.” This year’s theme was “Flipping the Script,” a nod to female writers and producers breaking through Hollywood’s glass ceiling. The afternoon began with a keynote speech from Betsy Beers, executive producer of ABC’s #TGIT lineup (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder). Words so inspiring — and refreshingly blunt — that even one of the male wait staff in the room could be overheard saying, “Wow, just wow.”

Beers explained that she has worked with executive producer and head writer Shonda Rhimes since 2002, when the duo pitched a salacious hospital drama to a roomful of male network execs. After one of those men insisted viewers would never relate to the lead character, a female medical intern who could get drunk and have a one-night stand the night before her first day on the job, Beers proceeded to describe her own real-life experience doing just that. That show, Grey’s Anatomy, is now in its 11th season and a frequent contender on the awards circuit. These days, when asked how she and Rhimes manage to produce three different hit shows simultaneously, the first thought Beers has is no one ever asks that of Dick Wolf (producer of the Law & Order franchise).

An Ira Glass Trick and a Molly Ringwald Treat

It is still to-be-determined how many children were talked and bribed this Halloween into going as Ira Glass. However, what we do know is that the erudite maestro of This American Life and Serial has pretty much already won the Halloween meta-tweet sweepstakes.

If Twitter allowed the hashtagging of automated retweets, this one would definitely merit #metametameta. Why three meta’s rather than just two?

Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise – Two Years Later

KatieHolmesPeopleOctober2014According to the New York Daily News, Katie Holmes placed some limits around this week’s big interview with People. At least two of which involved the cover:

“Tom’s name could not appear on the cover,” says our source… “The coverage had to be positive and there also couldn’t be a picture of Suri on the cover, because Katie wanted to protect her daughter.”

Meanwhile, Tom Cruise was in London this month and per an Instagram photo showing him standing alongside former Miss Venezuela World Ruddy Rodriguez, he could be seen wearing his Scientology Freedom Medal of Valor.

Hillary Clinton Might Get Another Vogue Cover

hillary-clinton-vogue-1998Hillary Clinton — who is definitely maybe probably 100 percent running for president in 2016 — is rumored to be getting another Vogue cover. Clinton appeared on the cover once before, back in 1998.

According to The New York Daily News, Clinton and Vogue’s editor Anna Wintour were recently spotted studying clothes at Michael Kors’ studio.

“Anna certainly doesn’t go to every fitting for the magazine, but for a subject like Hillary, she’d be involved in every aspect of the story,” a “fashion insider” told the Daily News. “She’d definitely need to approve the look.”

Despite the mountain of evidence, a Vogue spokesperson denied that the shopping trip meant anything. ”Anna just went by to say hello to Hillary,” said the spokesperson. “We have no plans for a cover.”

Right. Just like Clinton has no plans on running for president! We’re on to you, sister!

Hooray for Haunted Hollywood!

Entertainment journalist Valerie Tejeda has a debut novel coming out next year via Bloomsbury Kids’ Spark imprint. In the tome, titled Hollywood Witch Hunter, she touches on the idea that the Hollywood Sign is haunted by the specter of its infamous 1932 suicide victim, Peg Entwistle.

On this Hallow’s Eve, Tejeda looks a little more closely for Vanity Fair at the alleged gardenia-scented aura of the aspiring actress’ jump from the “H.” She spoke to a female jogger who saw the ghost of Entwistle last year, and reminds that many others have as well:

In 1990, a young couple hiking the Griffith Park trails stopped dead in their tracks when a disoriented blond woman dressed in 1930s clothing vanished before their eyes. Apparently, the couple was completely unaware of Entwistle’s suicide.
