While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Lily James is going from "Downton Abbey" to pumpkins and fairy godmothers. The actress has been handed the role of Cinderella in Disney's live-action version of the fairy tale, which will be directed by Kenneth Branagh and star Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother.
  • Speaking of Disney princesses, not every character qualifies for the title. Merida, the star of 2012's "Brave," will have a "royal coronation" on May 11 to officially crown her Disney's 11th princess. [Inside the Magic]
  • TNT isn't ready to leave "Dallas" and its shenanigans just yet. The reinvigorated primetime soap has been picked up for a third season, which should arrive in early 2014. [TVLine]
  • Showtime's "Homeland" will be back way before that, though. The network has announced that the third season of the award-winning series will bow on September 29.
  • John Krasinski is facing job loss after "The Office" closes its doors May 16, but he won't be unemployed for long. The actor will be a guest star on "Arrested Development" when the series arrives on Netflix with 15 new episodes May 26. [EW]
  • Selena Gomez nearly set on the Internet on fire with a sultry photo from the set of her music video for "Come and Get It." [HuffPo]
  • Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly turning down gifts for their soon-to-arrive baby, and instead are asking for friends and family to donate to a Chicago children's hospital (with the Chi being West's old stomping grounds). [TMZ]
  • Miss Maria Shriver on NBC? She does too. The former politician's wife is going back to NBC News to serve as a special anchor reporting on women's issues. [USA Today]

      Morning Peace! When I was little, I wanted to be a princess. I wonder what it takes to become a Disney princess? Don't you think Princess Sadie has a nice ring to it? What do think, Princess Peace? Princess BV, Prince Sokman, Prince Triumph all have a nice ring to it, too. Plenty of royalty of this blog. Yeah, we need to contact Disney. lol... I think I need more coffee...

    And you all say Kim is money hungry & only cares about herself. How many of YOU did something like that when you or your spouse/significant other were expecting? Yeah, thought so, you wanted the presents. So how many pots called the kettle black?

      The difference here is that they have all the money in the world to buy anything their heart desires for this child. Most normal people need that little boost of gifts just to get them started. Your kid is not that old that you can't remember that far back, right? How were you set financially when your kid was born? I"m sure they have a photo op coming to show how upstanding they are.
