Who Should Play Helen Gurley Brown?

It’s still a long way from a big-screen sure thing. But as reported by Deadline EIC Mike Fleming Jr., Fox2000 has optioned the 2015 HarperCollins book Enter Helen: The Rise And Reign Of The Original Cosmo Girl, by Brooke Hauser.

The editors of Cosmopolitan reacted by noting some of the great quotes (like the one above) that are first-draft worthy. We’re more fixated on which star should-could play Gurley Brown.

The possibilities are almost endless. Reese Witherspoon, gathering awards momentum currently with Wild, could die her hair. Shannen Doherty might engineer a career renaissance by combining some facial resemblances with Oscar-worthy hair extensions. And Nicole Kidman could drop the accent.

Shannen Doherty Has a Project

Hooray! Brenda’s coming back to the small screen. Well, not Brenda exactly. But Shannen Doherty has a deal for a wedding-themed reality TV show with WE tv.

The Shannen Doherty Project is an eight-part series focusing on Doherty’s wedding preparations with photographer Kurt Iswarienko “as they meld and intertwine their dynamic lives,” according to the press release. Which is a nice hippy way of saying, “Brenda is still bitchy as ever, so watch her go Bridezilla on her poor artsy husband-to-be.”

Beverly Hills, 90210 Nostalgia Not What It Used to Be

Just a few months ago, the Hermosa Beach home used for exterior beach house shots on the original Beverly Hills, 90210 TV series was on the market for $10.5 million. Now, per Zillow blogger Erika Ziggs, it can be yours for $8.99 mill.

Given the fact that this is the home is where Tori Spelling‘s character Donna Martin lost her her virginity, you’d think Monday’s Twitter news of the actress’ real-life third pregnancy would boost resale value, not puncture it. But the celebrity housing bubble is apparently not quite as impervious to the overall downturn in Hermosa Beach 90254.

41948906-29142548.jpgMcCain Uses Same “Investigative Techniques” That We Do: Peter Wallsten reveals that John McCain may have picked up a few bad habits from all his journo friends on the Once-Straight-Talk Express: “According to this Republican, who would discuss internal campaign strategizing only on condition of anonymity, the McCain team used little more than a Google Internet search as part of a rushed effort to review Palin’s potential pitfalls. Just over a week ago, Palin was not on McCain’s short list of potential running mates, the Republican said.”

41905833-28114510.jpgWe Still Hate Brenda: But others, apparently, don’t. Take Kate Aurthur‘s breathless interview with Ms. Shannen Doherty: “She beamed when the director praised her for hitting her mark in take after take; she jokingly berated one of the show’s executive producers, Gabe Sachs, while he was speaking with this reporter (‘Seriously, Gabe, keep your mouth shut.’). And she hugged — yes, hugged — a young cast member, Jessica Lowndes, after they completed a scene in which Lowndes’ character had to sing a cappella in front of the famous, intimidating Brenda Walsh, back at West Beverly High to direct (hilariously) the libidinal ‘Spring Awakening.’” (Our apologies to Ms. Aurthur for initially misspelling her name. The curse of Brenda is clearly upon us.)
