There's some rumor there could be a sequel to “Blade Runner.” Word is Harrison Ford is talking with director Ridley Scott about it.
A new reality show is coming to Syfy where contestants will compete for a Muppet-building job at the Jim Henson Company. The show is called “Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge” and Jim's son, Brian Henson, will be the lead judge. Sounds cool, no word on when it will premiere.
Kanye West will be on Jimmy Kimmel's show tonight. Kimmel is still insisting that their latest Twitter scuffle was not a prank. This should be good. Kimmel is on around 11:30 on ABC 29&8.
Would you be upset if you found out your high school child's Spanish teacher posed for Playboy when she was 18? I'm talking full on nude. Cristy Nicole Deweese was Playboy's “Coed of the Month” in February of 2011 and it looks like at least one parent took notice. The anonymous parent told the Dallas Morning News that Deweese's past was a distraction to the kids and that the kids were using their phones to look at her photos and video while on campus. She was removed from the classroom last Friday. A spokeswoman told the Dallas Morning News that while there was no illegal activity involved, the issue is “murky” since state ethics standard say that teachers should be of “good moral character and be worthy to instruct or supervise youth.” So what do you think? NOTE: We can't post pics here but here's the video from before the shoot. (There's no nudity just an interview and Deweese posing. I give it a PG13 rating, not meant for young children.)
