Jennifer Love Hewitt: 'The Client List' sexy turn for actor
Daybreak Daily’s afternoon exploration of the pop-culture world finds a special-needs service, a DUI bust, other things, and the mystery music video.
PARTY OF FIVE: And then some, per the Los Angeles Times, “The billboards are impossible to miss. There she is: Olive skin glistening, leg arched seductively, virtually naked save for flesh-colored lingerie that barely contains her ample cleavage. Jennifer Love Hewitt has towered over fast-food joints and gas stations for months to sell the actress' new show, "The Client List," which premieres Sunday on Lifetime.” http://lat.ms/HXCx7H
BUSTED: Another in a long line, per TMZ, “Amanda Bynes was arrested for DUI in West Hollywood early this morning ... TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us Bynes was attempting to pass a cop car ... when she sideswiped the vehicle. She was pulled over and cops determined she was not fit to be behind the wheel.” http://bit.ly/HjWIvS
YAHOO! TROUBLES: A chief quits, per Deadline Hollywood, “There’s one more corporate casualty at Yahoo following this week’s 2,000 layoffs: Chief Product Officer Blake Irving, whose operation was hit hard by the sackings, resigned.” http://bit.ly/I4FmGx
BRITNEY SPEARS: Of a musical leak, per PerezHilton, “It may be Good Friday, but another, reocurring holiday has also shown itself today! It's BRITMAS. . (so) check out a previously unreleased Britney Spears track, called Money, Love & Happiness, which leaked onto the net today.” http://bit.ly/HVnwYG
NOT SO HUNGRY ANYMORE: No more Games for him, per indieWIRE, “While this morning it was reported that Lionsgate and Fox worked out their scheduling issues to allow Jennifer Lawrence to shoot "Catching Fire" and the "X-Men: First Class" sequel essentially back-to-back, it looks like before cameras can start rolling on "The Hunger Games" sequel this fall, the studio will need to find a director. The Playlist has learned that Gary Ross has officially exited the franchise and will not direct the sequel.” http://bit.ly/I5dBOa
KATY PERRY: A part of her, per teenVOGUE, “This summer, the newly single 27-year-old is going to become even more ubiquitous, thanks to the big-screen release of Katy Perry: Part of Me, a documentary that showcases the incredible performances—and behind-the-scenes drama—of her California Dreams tour.” http://bit.ly/HijBU4
THE ROYALS: Eyes off Kate’s belly, per Us Weekly, “Kate Middleton became the subject of pregnancy rumors shortly after tying the knot on April 29, 2011 -- and it's starting to take its toll on the 30-year-old Duchess of Cambridge. "The constant rumors about Kate being pregnant, or not being pregnant, make her feel uncomfortable," a source close to Middleton tells Us Weekly.” http://bit.ly/HlpzW1
COVETED ROLE: And it looks as though the lead has been cast, per Variety, “Having beaten out some stiff competition, Nicole Kidman is in negotiations to play Grace Kelly in Olivier Dahan's "Grace of Monaco," which Pierre-Ange Le Pogam is producing with scribe Arash Amel.” http://bit.ly/Hi3p6l
SUGAREE: The song becomes a drink, per Rolling Stone, “Steve Schimoler, owner and chef at Cleveland's Crop Bistro & Bar, has been working hard to create the perfect rock-themed menu with the hopes of attracting some of the rock stars, industry executives, and music fans who will flood into town for the 27th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony later this month. He is particularly proud of a cocktail he calls the "Sugaree" (shaken not stirred) – in honor of the Rock Hall's new Grateful Dead exhibit.” http://bit.ly/If2lLc
