'Pretty Little Liars': Covered in mud

I am not looking forward to next Tuesday.

Not because I don’t want to know what happens on the mid-season finale of the most scandalous TV show of the season, but because I’m not confident I can make it through the rest of the summer without my “Pretty Little Liars.”

Last night’s episode didn’t waste any time before delving into drama and suspense. While Hanna, Aria and Spencer flipped through flashcards and prepared for the dreaded SAT, Emily was nowhere to be found – and not because she doesn’t like studying in groups.

Want to wear Chelsea Clinton's wedding dress?

Do you wish you could walk down the aisle in Chelsea Clinton’s white organza wedding gown?

ABS designer Allen Schwartz thinks you should.

The gowns Chelsea and Hillary wore to the former first daughter’s New York wedding inspired two new designs by Schwartz. The designs, which were put together in about eight hours on the Monday following Chelsea’s wedding, are very special to the designer.

Jennifer Aniston as Barbra Streisand in Harper's Bazaar

Talk about a "Switch": Jennifer Aniston transforms herself into a ‘60s-era Barbra Streisand – complete with long, fake nails - in the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar.

In the black-and-white photo, 41-year-old Aniston – who plays a pregnant woman involved in a sperm-donation mix-up in the August 20 comedy “The Switch” - also wears the singer’s signature side-part bob and Cleopatra eye makeup.

It wasn’t difficult for the former “Friends” star to capture the “Funny Girl”’s spirit – she is a huge Streisand fan and even met her at a New Year’s Eve party a few years ago.

Kanye's only Twitter friend doesn't like being followed

Looks like Kanye West and Steven Holmes don’t see eye to eye on the subject of fame.

The prodigious rapper and tweeter randomly selected Holmes as the solo person to follow on Twitter and let’s just say that Holmes is less than flattered by all of the attention.

Initially, Holmes seemed excited by the connection, tweeting , "Holy [expletive] bro thx for following!" But the Brit quickly changed his tune once the full glare of the limelight hit.

Jeff Goldblum leaving 'Law & Order:CI'

Jeff Goldblum leaving 'Law & Order:CI'

Well that didn’t take long.

The revolving roles continue on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" with Variety reporting that actor Jeff Goldblum is leaving the show after two seasons.

Goldblum took over last season for Chris Noth, who left the show after reviving his role of Det. Mike Logan, whom he portrayed on the original “Law & Order” series.

Goldblum’s Det. Zach Nichols helmed “L & O: CI” after the mass exodus of actors Vincent D'Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe and Eric Bogosian. Fans were fairly vocal about the loss of D’Onofrio and Erbe, who had been with the franchise since its inception.

Neither creator Dick Wolf, nor the USA Network have confirmed that Goldblum is choosing not to renew now that his two year deal is up.

So where does that leave us, “L&O: CI” fans? Does this latest news toll the death bell for a show that has a pretty strong core fan base, but has never really been able to pull in big ratings?

Wizards get wet and wild at Orlando themepark

"It's been a rough year at Hogwarts", the student chorus sings throughout "The Final Battle," a musical based upon the final full act of the last book in J.K. Rowling's “Harry Potter” series.

The statement couldn't be further from the truth at the brick and mortar version of Hogwarts castle at Universal Orlando, which has been a massive success since its opening in the summer of 2010.

Infinitus, a convention for Harry Potter fans run by HP Education Fanon, Inc., a group devoted to organizing academic symposiums, added to this summer's attendee total. About 1700 fans were given the chance to visit the new attraction in Orlando, Florida during the muggle-free "Night of a Thousand Wizards” event at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
