While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • We're sorry if this really happened to you, Evan Rachel Wood, especially right around your 24th birthday. The "Ides of March" actress was reportedly out clubbing in Paris with friends when apparently someone channeled Ludacris circa 2000 and started throwing 'bows. Sources say poor Evan lost a tooth! [TMZ]
  • If you watch "Gossip Girl," you know that Chace Crawford's Nate Archibald is no stranger to landing an older lady/lay, and it appears that multi-episode guest star Elizabeth Hurley will fit that bill. [X17]

  • Ready to play "Six degrees from 'Sex and the City'"? Candace Bushnell has teamed up with Josh Safran, an exec producer for "Gossip Girl," to adapt Bushnell's book "One Fifth Avenue" into a drama for ABC. The show's being described as "Sex and the City" meets "The Good Wife." [The Hollywood Reporter]
  • Elsewhere in broadcast TV land, the crew behind "Gossip Girl" are getting hired again: NBC has ordered a pilot called "My Best Friend Is a Lesbo," a half-hour comedy from "GG" team Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. [Variety]
  • Denise Richards may or may not have had a date with Simon Cowell when she was 8 months pregnant...and it sounds like it all depends on how one defines "date." To hear Denise tell it, perhaps Simon is a big fan of secret, blind group dates.... [E!]
  • "CSI: Miami's" Alex Rodriguez is the latest actor to join the male stripper fest that will be "Magic Mike." (By the way, casting and publicity? We totally see what you're doing here, with the teasing. And yes, we're enjoying it.) [Deadline]

    I am so glad most people stayed on topic regarding the peace/ceasefire. I hope that this Friday finds you well. Please let's not discuss who trolled who for that will only put us back where we start from and that is not where the majority of comments want to be. Hopefully, when the next While You Were Working is posted we can just go back to the it used before all this foolishness. No need to thank me people for putting out the need for the peace/ceasefire ~ I just thought it was time to be the voice of reason before everything got started up again ~ You are welcome though. @Elvis raised a good point ~ please remember all those who made the ultimate sacrifice on 9/11/2001 when this nation was attacked and all those who made the ultimate sacrifice since keeping this nation safe from terrorist. God Bless the U.S.A.!!!!

    As a resident and long time troll, I support the proposed cease fire. I didn't see a death threat, but really? This is a low rent entertainment blog. Save the really vicious stuff for the weekly "someone is too fat" thread. Those are the funniest threads anyway.

What's it been a week today or tomorrow? Are we all 10 yr olds on the playground? I don't think so. Therefore, can we put all this behind us and be peaceful? I will give it a whirl. Will any one else join me in a call for peace and reason?
