Kat Von D. debuts clothing line

Things are looking up for tattooed reality star Kat Von D.

In the wake of her split from fidelity-challenged biker Jesse James and the cancellation of “L.A. Ink,” the Hollywood Reporter notes that Kat has launched a fashion line. And it’s not half bad!

Rather than the Ed Hardy-esque wares you might expect, Kat’s first collection, called “Love Letters,” has a tasteful gothic flair inspired by historical figures like Beethoven and Poe.

What's the verdict on 'Glee' this season?

"Glee" returned last night after a temporary baseball-induced hiatus, but the lower ratings may suggest that some of you didn't really care.

The episode, which featured "Glee Project" winner Damian McGinty as an Irish exchange student/leprechaun to Brittany, a defection from New Directions and a "wait, seriously?" kiss between Puck and his baby's adoptive mom Shelby, declined in viewership by 19 percent since its last original episode, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

We've mentioned previously that "Glee" seems to have lost its luster, and the critic reaction to last night's episode was mixed.

Taylor Lautner lands Gus Van Sant film

Taylor Lautner's name may be synonymous with "Twilight" for now, but the teen star is broadening his horizons. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Taylor’s snagged a role in an upcoming Gus Van Sant film.

Sources tell the Hollywood Reporter that Lautner is finalizing a deal with director Van Sant ("Good Will Hunting," "Milk") to make a low-budget film. And it gets better: The indie movie is based on a nonfiction article published in The New Yorker that 19-year-old Taylor optioned.

The arthouse attempt could take Taylor’s career in a totally different direction. Famous for flicks like “Twilight” and the poorly received “Abduction,” Lautner is attached to upcoming projects like Fox sci-fi movie “Incarceron” and Universal’s toy-based “Stretch Armstrong.”

Speaking of “Twilight,” catch Taylor in “Breaking Dawn - Part 1,” which hits theaters November 18.
