Shannen Doherty: I don't want a 'Heathers' sequel

Fans of the '80s movie "Heathers" were ecstatic over the 2009 announcement that a sequel to the movie about the original high school mean girls was in the works. But the flick's follow-up may have been killed, and star Shannen Doherty couldn't be happier.

"I'm weird about sequels to movies like 'Heathers,'" 39-year-old Doherty — who appeared alongside Winona Ryder and Christian Slater in the dark comedy — told CNN. "'Heathers' was a cult classic, and I think it should stay that and not be revamped or redone another way. It was amazing and amazing for that time period, and it can stay there. I'm very proud of that movie. It makes me nervous to see it messed with again.”

Ryder, however, is disappointed that the sequel talks have stalled.

The real talents emerge on 'Live to Dance'

On Wednesday night's first live episode of "Live to Dance," Paula Abdul told the oh-so-adorable couple Bev and Hap that they made her think that "talent is overrated."

Don't get me wrong, I loved seeing those two shake their moneymakers (in a Paula-mentored/choreographed routine, no less), but, you see, it's a talent show. So at the end of the day, as Paula's fellow judges pointed out, they don't deserve to be in the final six.

There were a few other cute acts (Chi-Town's Finest Breakers, for example), but that's pretty much as far as it goes. The real stand-outs were the approximately 572-member dance crew The Vibe, the sensational Jittin' Genius, and the tween couple Amanda and D'Angelo.
