Sarah Palin's pitching new reality show?

We've seen her hunt caribou (and draw fire from Aaron Sorkin while doing it) and camp out with Kate Gosselin on her TLC show "Sarah Palin's Alaska," but perhaps we haven't seen enough of Sarah Palin's husband, Todd.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Palin has been pitching a new reality series that would train the spotlight on her husband's snowmobile racing career.

The show, like "Palin's Alaska," would be produced by reality vet Mark Burnett, but THR reports that the potential program isn't gaining interest with networks like TLC and A&E.

'G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation' trailer arrives

'G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation' trailer arrives

It looks like June 29, 2012 will bring you twice as much Channing Tatum, as the actor appears to have two movies lined up to open on that date.

There's his stripper flick "Magic Mike," and then there's "G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation" - although, admittedly, we don't see a lot of 31-year-old Tatum in the trailer for the "G.I. Joe" sequel below.

The two-minute clip gives an idea of how "Step Up 3-D" and "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" director Jon Chu handled the reins on this follow-up to 2009's "Rise of the Cobra," and it offers plenty of explosions, mountain-side battles and machine gun firing.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Adrianne Palicki have joined the "G.I. Joe" cast along with Bruce Willis, because, as the Rock says, "the world ain't saving itself."

What do you think of the trailer?

Disney introduces a younger princess

Disney’s many princesses are wildly popular with kids, but characters like Belle and Cinderella behave as adults. The New York Times reports that Walt Disney Co. is remedying this by adding yet another princess to its line… and this one is a little girl herself.

The new princess, Sofia, is aimed at children ages 2 to 7. A television movie and series called “Sofia the First” featuring the new character will air on the Disney Channel and Disney Junior.

According to Just Jared Jr., "Modern Family's" Ariel Winter landed the role of the young, animated royal, who actually starts out the film as a regular girl. After her mom marries a king, that's when Sofia is introduced to "a glamorous, but sometimes confusing, castle world" - one that includes step-siblings. (Now where have we heard that one before?)
