Today in showbiz news: Good god there might be more Twilight books, Long Island Medium will continue its huckster ways, and Skyfall is already a big hit.
Stephenie Meyer, the author of the wildly popular Twilight series of sexual morality plays, recently hinted to reporters that she might someday write a few more books set in the same universe and involving some of the same characters. Specifically Jacob the noble werewolf savage and the baby, an actual baby, that he romantically "imprinted" on and who is the half-vampire daughter of the girl he used to love. Yeah, Meyer might someday tell us, in book form, what happens to them. So, that's potentially good news for Taylor Lautner and mostly miserable news for everyone else. I mean really what more can Meyer teach us about a woman's responsibility to control her boyfriend's sexual urges? She's already taught us plenty! We don't need any more. We really, really don't. Please, Stephenie. Think of us. Think of all of us. [Entertainment Weekly]
TLC, The Lunatics Channel, has decided to renew its fake psychic (that's redundant, but whatever) show Long Island Medium, starring a lady who's either crazy or a conman or both, for a fourth season. So that's a whole 'nother season of guessing and generalizing and making strangers cry. It's just what America, especially the Tri-State area, needs right now. [The Hollywood Reporter]
