In case you aren’t hip to the latest news surrounding Lifetime, Television for Women, allow Twitter users everywhere to get you caught up. As everyone knows, Lifetime movies are notoriously awful (usually). While I haven’t really settled down for a bad made-for-TV movie since Tori Spelling and Meredith Baxter decided they were too good for them, I was well aware of the controversy surrounding the Aaliyah biopic. Which aired last night. To horrendous, cringe-inducing reviews (because duh). More
Self-righteous rant aside, there’s still a very good chance that I’ll watch this series. More
Because nothing is sexier than murder. More
Everyone’s favorite eccentric weirdo is the new face of Versace, but she looks a hell of a lot like the old face of Versace. More
In honor of Lifetime’s newest pageant show Kim of Queens, this week’s makeup tutorial is inspired by child beauty pageants. And how awful they are. More
The magic of makeup never fails to astound me. More
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.
See the teaser trailer for this upcoming TV movie now, and see more video picks from The Gloss. More
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.
