ring the alarm!

update: see the end of this post to see if this rumor was deemed to be fact or fiction:-)

ok...ive just been informed by this lovely lady about something just too interesting not to mention.

it seems that um...Eva Longoria and Beyonce' are going to be playing lesbians in an american version of the UK's "Tipping the Velvet."

yeah i hope im proven wrong, but i really dont believe this. even though there are currently hundreds of thousands of results when you do a google search about the movie. click here for one of those links. and this is what beyonce has allegedly said about the movie: "We've had Brokeback Mountain so the time is right for this divine novel to get the same treatment."

my doubts are with Beyonce's involvement. its not like she's ever had to squash real-life lesbian rumors like Alicia Keys has, but i just dont think Beyonce' would jeopardize her *in* with the urban/gospel crowd. but hey, if she's really doing it, i'll be very impressed and i'll go buy every album she ever thought about making. hell, if beyonce's in a lesbian movie, i'll go to church with her every sunday morning for a year.

i will continue to research this developing story;-)

just to recap...what im saying is, this girl...


and this girl...



might be doing this on the big screen at some point soon...


if they dont end up making the movie, i know that my wife Katharine Mcphee and i would be more than happy to take their places...right after we get back from the honeymoon.

UPDATE!!! We figured out that this was JUST A RUMOR! Eva set the record...*straight* @ http://www.people.com/people/article/0,26334,1558912,00.html

I agree with the anonymous commenter. The original was so beautifully done (nevermind that they switched the haircolors - Nan was the blond and Kitty was the darkhaired in the book) that I just don't think an American version would peak my interest, no matter who was in it.

the original version was the best, so I do not think any American version would spark my interest.

Btw, my friends and I are going to do a photoshoot with the shirts I won soon. I will send you the photos.

Thanks!

Let's look back to Austin Powers Goldmember, as opposed to the Spy Who Shagged Me or the other one. lol I can't remember its subname. Well There is a randy raunchy sexxing between Austin and his girls in the other movies, but as soon as Beyonce gets the role of Foxxy Cleopatra, of course there is hardly even a kiss! She's a prude, and I will believe this when I see it.
