Paramount Network is finally airing Heathers unless…
October 4th, 2018 under Paramount Network, Shannen Doherty. [ Comments: none ]

Paramount Network was going to air Heathers in March, and then the Parkland shooting happened on Valentine’s Day. It was then rescheduled to run for July, but then there was another deadly school shooting. Finally, in July, they decided they were not going to air the remake of the 1989 movie.

Or so we thought. Today, Shannen Doherty announced the postponed, postponed, cancelled show will be airing 9 of its 10 episodes beginning on October 25 and ending on the 29th.

Why the change of heart? They heavily edited the episodes, so it will be suitable for air during these times. Let’s just hope and pray there is not another reason to postpone/cancel the show again. Because that would be mean there was another school shooting and we never need another one of those.

No word if they will go ahead with the second season that was almost completed in the writing room.


Shannen Doherty reveals a marker test came back elevated
April 4th, 2018 under Shannen Doherty. [ Comments: none ]

Shannen Doherty has been very open about her battle with cancer which is not in remission and she just shared a recent update on her health. She went in for some tests and one did not come back the way she was hoping.

She said, “Test and results. One Tumor marker test came back good. Other… elevated.” Then she explained what that means, “Just means I get monitored and another test. But even after that call, I’m staying positive and taking stock of my life. It certainly helps put things in perspective and reminds you of what you learned thru the cancer journey. And I sometimes, need a refresher. As I’ve said before, cancer changes your life in ways no one could ever imagine.”

Then she let us know that just because the test came back elevated, and that does not mean the cancer is back. It could be all sorts of things. Let’s pray for her that it is one of those other things.

UPDATE: Shannen Doherty announced today that she is still cancer free. The marker that came back elevated is not the same one as her cancer. Her PET scan came back clean, which means she is still in remission.

She says that she needs to be more responsible when sharing information. But I think it is the doctors who need to be more careful. They gave her hours of stress for no reason at all. I wish they were better at giving results. Don’t they realize they are, literally, playing with people lives.


Shannen Doherty asks the obvious reboot question
January 29th, 2018 under Shannen Doherty, The CW. [ Comments: none ]

Last week, The CW announced that they ordered a pilot for a Charmed reboot and one of the stars took to Twitter to express her displeasure for it. Holly Marie Combs Tweeted, “While some may not get why I take issue with the network that didn’t want to renew Charmed 12 years ago ‘reimagining’ it now let me just say I understand it perfectly. Also this kinda stuff given all that Rose and Alyssa have done lately…um no. Just No.”

Then her co-star and TV sister asked a very obvious question that many of us pondered. Shannen Doherty wrote, “So curious… if it was not a reboot and just was a show about sisters and family dynamics with super natural powers…. thoughts?”

Why do networks insist on calling a show a reboot when the only thing it has in common with the original is the names of the characters are the same. Would we like Dynasty more if they just made a show about spoiled rich people? How about MacGyver, well I never got the passed the pilot. And so on. Why not just make a show with kind of the same premise and give everyone new names? I don’t know about you, but I am sick of reboots that have nothing with the original.

There is a huge difference between reimagining a show and going way off the rails of one. How do you feel about reboots that have nothing to do with the original?

And don’t get me started on the trend of turning big screen movies into television shows.


Greetings and salutations, the Heathers trailer is finally here!
January 18th, 2018 under Paramount Network, Shannen Doherty. [ Comments: none ]

Paramount Network launched today and to celebrate, they released the trailer for their Heathers reboot that debuts on March 7th. While it is does not look like the film, it definitely has that campy feel. Not just because Shannen Doherty is in it. That is just an added bonus. What makes it like the cult favorite is that dark humor.

To paraphrase Veronica, my daydreams of the show are not as good as the reality. The reality is so much better. So until it premieres, I will be saying, “F*ck me gently with a chainsaw.”


Shannen Doherty gets her Heathers on again!
August 9th, 2017 under Shannen Doherty. [ Comments: none ]

As we know Shannen Doherty, battled breast cancer and won! Now that she is in remission, she is ready to get back to work. What better way to do it, then by her reprising one of her most famous roles in the Heathers reboot that will air on Paramount Network next year. Here she is as Heather Duke again and you would never believe that we first saw her in that role 29 years ago. It is like no time has passed for her.

Here is the inspiration message she wrote on Instagram along with the photo, “Was back on set today. It’s been a rough two years. Fighting cancer. As an actor, people bench you. They assume you’re to weak, not able etc etc. and yet it’s something like work that invigorates and renews strength to conquer the unimaginable beast. I compared myself to a car today. That vintage Shelby that’s been in the garage too long. It’s still a great car. The best. Just needs time for the engine to warm up and it’s good to go. Performing like it’s supposed to. I’m grateful for today. Grateful for everyday. Thank you @heathers for letting me play and be someone else today. Great crew, great writers, great cast, great show, great director. #paramountnetwork2018”

I do not know about you, but I am thrilled to have her on our small screens again. I missed her. And to be honest, I was not sure she was going to beat cancer. I am so happy she did and she is proving to everyone how strong she is and how to remain strong during your biggest challenges.
