Jodi Arias Movie in the Works
It doesn't surprise me that there's a movie based on Jodi Arias who is currently on trial for murder. What surprises me is that Lifetime is developing the movie instead of HLN. (These days it's practically Jodi Arias all the time on HLN.) Lifetime has had a good success making movies from current events in the courts. In January "Prosecuting Casey Anthony" aired starring Rob Lowe. Lowe also starred as Drew Peterson in "Drew Peterson: Untouchable." So don't be surprised if Lowe shows up in this one too.
Matthew McConaughey Defends Lance Armstrong
Since his big interview with Oprah Winfrey Lance Armstrong has been mostly out of the headlines. Now Matthew McConaughey is talking about his friend Lance Armstrong in the new Details magazine saying, "He told a lie, he's not a liar." Hmmmm, I beg to differ.
