One Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton biopic was on Lifetime with Lindsay Lohan and a guy whose name I don’t remember. One will be on the BBC with Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West. I feel like there’s a clear winner.

She makes prostitution look so effortless and profitable, like an American Belle De Jour, but set in Texas. Finally prostitution portrayed at it’s best. More
A day may come, in the far and distant future, when there will not be fourteen simultaneous adaptations of Pride and Prejudice being produced at any given moment, but that day is not yet. Pride and Prejudice adaptations are the only offering keeping Jane Austen sleeping in a quiet grave; without these yearly oblations, she would burst forth from her tomb in the unhallowed ground and swing a scythe of fire through the living, exacting her tribute from our very flesh.

The verdict is in: Liz and Dick was a very bad movie, and everyone thinks so, from The New York Times to the least articulate person in your Facebook feed. (Lady Gaga claims to sincerely like it, but she is definitely lying, so she doesn’t count.) But how bad was it? Come along with me on a schadenfreude-filled trip through the most deliciously mean reviews that have been published thus far. More
Lindsay Lohan is totally Liz Taylor (in her dreams.) More
They’re basically the same person! More
As part of their ongoing effort to prove that their made-for-TV movie Liz And Dick has not been derailed by Lindsay Lohan‘s continuous crime spree, Lifetime, Television For Criers (TM) has released three more stills from the film. Let’s judge them! More
No, I’m completely serious.
Here at TheGloss we love Elizabeth Taylor. A lot. Bunches. All the bunches. Not just because she wrote a book about her pet chipmunk, although that’s one good reason to love her. Also because she was a great actress and a style legend and a wit.
Meanwhile, we have… super conflicted feelings about Lindsay Lohan. We kind of want her to get better, but we also kind of think she’s a spray tanned mess who is mostly just good at being naked in Marilyn Monroe themed photoshoots at this point.
That said, Lindsay Lohan playing Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime movie makes perfect sense. Puzzled? Here’s why. More

Men would just like to make sure that women of the world know our body issues have nothing to do with them, just our own loserness. – AskMen

This woman had an affair with one of her professors in college, and she doesn’t regret it. Wait, do you mean the professor murdering you at the end only happened in a Lifetime movie and not real life? – MyDaily
Alyssa Milano is starring in a new Lifetime movie called Sundays at Tiffany’s. The story is about a Manhattan woman named Jane (Milano) who is about to marry a popular TV actor named Hugh. However, she’s having second thoughts about whether Hugh is her dream man, and the invisible friend she had as a kid suddenly reappears in her life as a real – and hot – dude. Yes, you read that correctly: her invisible friend shows up as a real person. And then – spoiler alert! – they make out.
Implausible storyline aside, Milano is more than capable in the part, and she spoke to The Gloss about the movie, her wedding dress, and her personal style icon. More
Reviving Ophelia, Dr. Mary Pipher’s hugely successful pop psychology book about young women, identity, and body image, came out when I was in high school. As a result, there were reading and discussion groups at many high schools like mine, and the book was still on reading lists when I was in college. The book is in its sixth or seventh reprinting, which only shows its enduring popularity and the fact that many of the issues raised by the book are still relevant to young women and their families. Which is why I have to ask – how the hell did it take this long to get turned into a Lifetime movie? More
This week’s batch of odd news stories screams Lifetime Movie Network. And since all Lifetime movies are loosely based on true stories, we thought it would be fun to take a look at the news from this week, pretend they … More
Grey’s Anatomy star Chyler Leigh is starring in the upcoming Lifetime movie The 19th Wife, about a woman named Queenie who is in a polygamist community who is accused of murder. We here at The Gloss love few things more than polygamy and Lifetime movies, so we’re obviously really excited about the movie – we might even be liveblogging it! I got to speak to Chyler today about her experience playing a sister-wife.
Had you read any books or seen any TV shows about polygamy before you took on the role?
I didn’t read the book [The 19th Wife] before I got the part. When I arrived in Canada [the movie was filmed in Calgary], I got an autographed copy from the author, David Ebershoff – he actually has a cameo in the movie! More
