While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • "Breaking Bad" will return for its final eight episodes on August 11 and, since we'll obviously have tons to talk about as the series wraps up, AMC is planning an "after-show" called "Talking Bad." [Variety]
  • Beginning in 2015, a new "Star Wars" movie will become an annual event as Disney plans to release a new installment every year. [EW]
  • The next "Smurfs" film is pulling in a pop star for its soundtrack: Britney Spears. The singer will record a new song just for "Smurfs 2." Yes, we're serious. [Billboard]
  • Rihanna's canceled four of her concerts on her Diamonds World Tour due to illness ... which some people are taking as a sign that she's pregnant. Those connected with her team, though, say it's just throat issues. [TMZ]
  • But you know who is really a mom? Malin Akerman. The actress has tweeted that she welcomed a baby boy on Tuesday, and named him ... drumroll, please ... Sebastian Zincone, last name courtesy of her husband, Italian musician Roberto Zincone. [Malin Akerman's Twitter]
  • And, while we're on the subject, Maya Rudolph has finally confirmed she's expecting her fourth child with partner Paul Thomas Anderson. The actress/comedian told Ellen DeGeneres on her show Wednesday that she hopes their newest arrival will make an appearance this summer. ["Ellen"]
  • The 2013 Oscars was controversial and had way too many musical numbers, but overall wasn't bad and had nice ratings to boot. All of which means that Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will return to put on another Academy Awards on March 2, 2014. [THR]
  • If you weren't already planning to see "The Lone Ranger" when it's released on July 3, there's a final theatrical trailer that's making a last ditch attempt to reel you in with tons of exposition. Like, two-and-a-half minutes worth of walking you through the plot:

    A new Star Wars movie every year? So its gonna be rushed & half-a$sed just so Disney can say they killed the most iconic entertainment franchise ever that much quicker? Sad. Hopefully they wont try to make it a platform for the next wave of Disney kid show actors to transfer to the big screen. I dont think we need Jedi with purity rings or princesses telling our daughters its ok to walk out of the house half nekkid & act like a little wh0re.

      Hey Sokman! You know when I read that, I thought the same thing. One a year? I liked your touch about the purity rings and princesses, too. That made me laugh.

      If you don't mind my saying, I'll bet they're going to make the next three of them all at once over the next couple years. Kind of like that Peter Jackson guy did with the Lord of the Rings movies. Then they'll release one a year starting in 2015. But you're right about those Disney princesses sending our children mixed messages, and the wrong ones at that. When I took the family down to Orlando a few years ago in the RV, you could tell half of those Disney characters weren't on the moral "up and up" and do things in their time off that they should be ashamed of. For example, when Tinkerbell squatted down to get her picture taken with my sweet little daughter, Darla, you could literally see the sand in that woman's c o o t c h.

    I won't be forming my own opinion on the tragedy in Boston until I hear what Sarah Palin has to say about it. Afterall, she is my moral compass and my guiding light. I hope she is for you as well.

    So with the two producers returning for the Oscars next year, does that mean we can expect more musical tributes (especially a HUGE nod to Chicago)?

    Hello Sadie, Vixen. I too was thinking of a throat comment. Something along the lines of Chris's hands being around it. Seemed a bit tasteless though so I didn't go for it. Good job on holding back on the deep throat comment lol.

    Rihanna pregnant? Hope it's not for Chris Brown; then she is stuck with him for the rest of her life.

      Chris Brown is definitely on my list of people who should never be allowed to procreate.

      Evening BV & Triumph, and whomever else comes on! Do you get the feeling we will have another reality show in the future if she's with child? Let's pray it's just throat issues.

    • Peace ✌

      BV & Triumph, Since when do you hold back? (lol) If she is pregnant , it's prob caused by throat issues. ;)
      Sadie, The last thing we need is another reality show...unless someone out there takes BV's advice & does a show about the Marq bloggers. Haha!

      Hey Peace. Good to hear your daughter's friends are home. I know it's unusual that I hold back. Believe it or not I do have decency standards. They're just not very high is all lol.
