Angela Lansbury is not happy about the fact that NBC is bringing back Murder, She Wrote with Octavia Spencer in the lead role. The now 88-year-old legend says that she thinks it’s a mistake to call it Murder, She Wrote because “Murder, She Wrote will always be about a Cabot Cove and this wonderful little group of people who told those lovely stories and enjoyed a piece of that place, and also enjoyed Jessica Fletcher, who is a rare and very individual kind of person. So I’m sorry that they have to use the title Murder, She Wrote, even though they have access to it and it’s their right.” Welcome to Hollywood Mrs. Potts, but there will always only be ONE Jessica Fletcher, let’s just keep that shit real.

Debi Mazar Instagrammed these super-glam pics of her and Joey Arias (“Betty Page loves us both!”) and fashion power couple Isabel and Ruben Toledo at the Broadway smash After Midnight NY (with special guest star Fantasia Barrino!). Both pics are simply TOO GORG. That’s what New York is about, kids.
Ah, New York! Where else would you find Leonard Nimoy and Anna Wintour in the same room? It was opening night on Broadway this week, and both the old guard and the new came out for the revival of Harold Pinter’s masterpiece Betrayal starring real life couple Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz (and super-hunky Prometheus star Rafe Spall). It was nothing but nothing but A-listers as far as the eye could see. All the major power couples were there: Steven and Kate! Oscar and Annette! Barry and Diane! Bruce and Patty! Marlo and Phil! Such a shame the play was panned by the New York Times, who called it loud, crude, and clunky. They also said Craig, Weisz, and Spall “made up the rowdiest, most extroverted sexual triangle since Liza Minnelli, Burt Reynolds, and Gene Hackman caterwauled their way through the ill-fated film Lucky Lady in 1975,” ZING, amiright, fellas? That’s such a deliciously obscure insult even I don’t get it. Gotta love the Times. Anyway exiting the Ethel Barrymore Theater, from top, left: Leonard Nimoy, Anna Wintour, Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg, this generation’s Brooke Astor, Annette de la Renta with Barry Diller (and half of Graydon Carter), Sir Ian McKellan, and Marlo Thomas.

Neil Patrick Harris tweeted out “Hedwig News! The first ad image was just released, and I get to debut it! Tickets go on sale soon… @HedwigOnBway” NPH returns to Broadway this Spring in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, opening April 22, 2014 at the Belasco Theatre with previews starting March 29. Doogie’s come (out) a long way, huh?
Clap your hands if you believe in faeries! And if you believe in Lady Gaga’s new single “Applause”! But first, please watch a new episode of spastic, bombastic #JohnPollySays featuring me discussing everything from Zachary Quinto’s hirsute forehead to Lauren Bacall’s fancy footwork. And how has no one realized the obvious parallels between Gaga’s “Applause” and the 1970 Broadway musical of the same name? Along the way there’s dish on the drag queens appearing in Gaga’s new video, this week’s RuPaul and Gaga Twitter tango, the ladies of Girls, and Jinks Monsoon’s makeup regimen. And best of all, a reminder that Margo Channing was the fiercest icon of all time, no matter who’s playing her. Mwaaaaahhh!
(And, thanks to Mathu Andersen for my makeup for the ArtPop homage. #ImNotWorthy)
