Stacey Dash defends pro-Romney stance

[Editor's Note: To hear more from Stacey Dash on this topic, listen to her Tuesday interview with Piers Morgan in the video above.]

We know that not all of Hollywood skews left, but actress Stacey Dash has had to run defense after publicly supporting Republican candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday.

Along with sharing quite the patriotic photo, Dash encouraged her followers to "Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future," and has since been deluged with opposing commentary that's even caught the eye of Sandra Fluke, who came to Dash's defense.

"So disappointed to see people attacking @REALStaceyDash for voicing her opinion. Disagree politically, but #racist attacks are unacceptable," Fluke, the Georgetown University law school student who was caught in political crossfire earlier this year, tweeted Monday.

TV adaptation of 'Great Expectations' in development

We want more of Reese Witherspoon on the big screen, but we're also excited to see what she does behind-the-scenes with a TV adaptation of "Great Expectations."

According to Deadline, the 36-year-old actress and mom of three is executive producing a modern-day take on the Charles Dickens novel, and it's now in development at The CW.

Called "Expectations," the series would focus on a young woman from a small town who dreams of making it in San Francisco, but who swiftly becomes disappointed by what she finds in the big city. That is, until an unknown benefactor comes to her aid.

"Expectations" also isn't the only story The CW is giving a contemporary spin. The network's also developing a modern-day "Alice in Wonderland" as a police drama, with Alice as a detective and Los Angeles serving as her "Wonderland."

Watch: LiLo and James Deen in 'The Canyons'

For all of the raunchy talk that's been circulating about Bret Easton Ellis' "The Canyons" - perhaps a given since it stars adult actor James Deen - the trailer plays pretty coy.

Instead, the just-over-a-minute long clip invokes a retro style as it introduces Lindsay Lohan as "Tara" - who's "sweet as sin," the trailer tells us - and James Deen's "Christian," the "boy next door ... gone bad!"

Bristol Palin speaks on suspicious 'DWTS' package

On Monday's "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars," the remaining celebs and their pro partners were tasked with re-envisioning a stand-out routine from a prior season. (This edition of "DWTS" is all about the memories, apparently.)

The theme worked best for Melissa Rycroft and Kelly Monaco, who both scored the highest marks. Rycroft's redo of J.R. Martinez's samba with partner Tony Dovolani nabbed a 27 from the judges, as did Kelly Monaco's paso doble with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, as inspired by Laila Ali.

Darkest timeline? 'Community' and 'Whitney' premieres postponed

Twitter had a collective gnashing of teeth on Monday night as news spread that NBC's going to delay the planned October 19 premieres of "Community" and "Whitney."

More specifically - with all due respect to "Whitney," which surprised many observers when it was renewed last May - the devoted fanbase for "Community" went into an immediate uproar.
