'Breaking Dawn' to stay PG-13

Things may get comparatively strange and steamy in the "Breaking Dawn" installment of the “Twilight” saga, but that doesn’t mean the MPAA rating for the two-part film adaptation will be taken up a notch.

The storyline includes a bedroom scene for Robert Pattinson's Edward and Kristen Stewart's Bella, and also depicts an...interesting pregnancy and delivery of the couple's half-vamp baby.

It gets so graphic that Pattinson has said he’s not quite sure how they’re going to keep it tween-friendly.

'Social Network' actor cast as 'Snow White' prince

The production team behind “The Brothers Grimm: Snow White" has found its prince in “Social Network” star Armie Hammer, according to E! News.

Hammer joins Julia Roberts in this updated take on the Snow White tale, which will incorporate more humor and adventure. In this version, Snow White teams up with the seven dwarfs to take back "what's rightfully hers" after her stepmother kills her dad and destroys the kingdom, according to a press release. The search is still on for an actress to play the lead.

In other Snow White movie news, it looks like Viggo Mortensen has dropped out of Universal’s “Snow White and the Huntsman," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Italy not so excited for 'Jersey Shore's' arrival

As the cast of "Jersey Shore" gets ready to head over to Italy for season four, the New York Post reports that some Italians aren't thrilled with MTV's hottest reality show.

Roberto Del Bove, columnist for Rome's New Notzie newspaper, said the show "embodies the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized," according to the Post. "Slicked hair, exaggerated narcissism, boundless love for the family and outlandish eccentricity" is how the cast was reportedly described in Rome's newspaper Corriere della Sera.

But the show wasn't exactly met with open arms when it first premiered in 2009 either, even prompting advertisers to remove their spots from the program. Since then, however, the ratings have soared.

Sylvester Stallone launching menswear line

Sylvester Stallone is known for his movies, muscles and, if he has his way, his menswear. The action star is launching his own line of men's clothing called Sly Inc.

According to Vogue U.K., the collection, set to debut next year, will be inspired by his films "Rocky" and "Rambo" and include jeans, shirts and outerwear.

"I've lived a life where I know what has worked and what hasn't worked," Stallone has said of his own wardrobe. "Clothing is the first step to building a character. I hope that what worked for me will work for others. I really believe I have an understanding of the male psyche on all levels. I want to expose people to things that will work and this is the apropos time. I'm not experienced in this field, but we have the proper team to move this vision along."

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Madonna's plans for a Malawi school fall apart

Madonna’s ambitious plans to build a $15 million school for girls in Malawi have reportedly come to a sudden and grinding halt.

Madonna’s facing tough questions today, like where did almost $4 million dollars in donations and funds go on a school that hasn’t even broken ground yet?

So is Madonna really to blame for this mess? I can understand why some people may want to blame her since it’s ultimately her project and charity. I know she must be so disappointed that this has happened. It’s a shame and I hope it doesn’t interfere with all the good work her non-profit, Raising Malawi, does. What do you think? Post your thoughts below.
