The Writers Guild of America West has tapped veteran scribe William Blinn as the recipient of its Paddy Chayefsky Laurel Award for Television. The award, which honors lifetime achievement for outstanding TV writing, will be presented at the WGA Awards ceremony on Feb. 7 at the Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

According to one site that I read, Debbie Allen will be on hand during the ceremony to perform an interpretive dance.

Also, I found a picture online from the dance auditions for the new Fame movie and it looks like Fame dancer Marguerite Pomerhn Derricks (from the TV series) is in it. At this time I can't find any confirmation that Marguerite is working on the new Fame movie. Click here to view the picture. I believe Marguerite is the one at the table wearing a white top.

Confessions of a Teen Idol
Posted Dec 09 2008 by Pam



Remember I previously posted saying that Billy Hufsey was working on a new show for VH1? Well, I now have more information.

The show is called Confessions of a Teen Idol and it is a reality show which will give seven heartthrobs of the 80s and 90s one more shot at fame. It will feature former teen stars Christopher Atkins (The Blue Lagoon), David Chokachi (Baywatch), Billy Hufsey (Fame), Jeremy Jackson (Baywatch), Eric Nies (Grind), Jamie Walters (Beverly Hills 90210), and Adrian Zmed (Grease 2). Confessions of a Teen Idol will explore the harsh reality of fame and its consequences. Following the guidance of fellow former-heartthrob, Scott Baio, the cast will be given every tool necessary to jump start their once larger-than-life careers.

The show will premiere January 4th, at 8pm on VH1.
