Don't Cha

Don't cha hate it when you're knee deep in rewriting a script and BOOM, another great idea out of the blue hits you. Either you put that idea aside (jotting down notes so you don't forget it) to work on later or you put the rewrite aside and plunge into treacherous waters. God, I hate when that happens! Of course, this is the situation I find myself in, and not for the first time either.

Looks like they're playing musical chairs with the trailer at

All I know that in the original script, I wrote several "trailer" moments and so far, none of them have been any of the trailers. I wonder if they were even filmed. Sigh.

Am very upset with BRAVO right now. No way should Steven have been canned on TOP CHEF. IMO, the one who should have gotten the boot was Harold for his flavorless salmon and for suggesting using box cake mix. What is this, TOP DUNCAN HINES? Lianne showed what a poor leader she was for going along with it and for allowing substandard food to leave the kitchen. You know damn well what Gordon Ramsay of HELL'S KITCHEN would have done. He would have tossed the food out and closed the kitchen down. The only one who didn't go along with the box cake nonsense was, you guessed it, Steven. Oh, never mind. Mark my words, Steven will go on to an illustrious career while Tiffani slings slop at IHOP. What does BRAVO know?

And why is BLOW OUT so short this season? Already they're touting the season finale! Seems like the show only filmed a handful of episodes. Good thing I have AMERICAN INVENTOR and DEAL OR NO DEAL to fall back on.

Happy Feaster

Because that's all I've been doing, cooking, baking and feasting. Had a full house for the holiday. We basically had three Easter dinners over the course of the weekend: turkey, ham and leg of lamb. Tomorrow, leftovers!

There's a trailer for the CHRISTMAS movie on
Watch it and tell me what you think. I got an earful from my kids.

After an impasse, it looks like my co-writer and I on the AMAZON script are back on track. It took some requests from producers to give us the kick in the pants we needed to solve the dilemma.

Meanwhile, I'm waiting on another co-writer on our SNOWBLIND script, but not to worry, while I wait I've been working on still another stumble through the jungle adventure. And I started a couple of other scripts too. What can I say, I'm a multi-tasker. I don't clean but I can sure whip up a batch of magic brownies.

I fell for a great April Fool's Day joke. I read at one of the boards that Uwe Boll was going to helm a remake of ROSEMARY'S BABY. I was disgusted, and so was my husband when I told him about it. Turns out it was a hoax.

I got some great notes on my ROMANCING THE WISHBONE spec and have been working on that this weekend. Ideally, I'd love to hear some news regarding my ORACLE spec. It's a feel good rom-com in the vein of MOONSTRUCK and MBFGW. I can only pray that lightning can strike twice.

In the or no deal!
