Looks that after a recent surge in viewership, NBC execs are rethinking their decision to cancel the Jungle!
I’ve definitely got my fingers crossed after reading this Bill Carter report.
The reports of the demise of “Lipstick Jungle” look as if they were premature.
The NBC drama about well-heeled women friends in New York, starring Brooke Shields, was shuffled off to Friday nights two weeks ago amid reports that the show was canceled, production was being shut down, and the remaining finished episodes would not get on air.
But as of this week, the show is breathing again. The reason is that it showed signs of life this past Friday, and it picked up 50 percent more viewers when delayed viewing (from DVRs and other devices) was included in the episode a week earlier.

So Blake Lively covers December’s issue of W magazine.
But I can’t help but envy the Gossip Girl who stands at five-nine-and-three-quarters.
And has a closet full of bags — enough to open a small store with, I think.
Here’s what she tells W.
I probably have, like, 60 gorgeous bags. I have a closet with my really sharp, fancy, nice ones – the ones that go with my Valentino pumps, for example. And then I have a closet with the ones that are a little more rugged-feeling, the kind that go with my Belstaff motorcycle boots.

America’s Next Top Model has finally been spun off.
Reuters reports indicate that the new show, “Operation Fabulous,” will feature some familiar faces from the ANTM judging cast.
The CW is spinning off its hit reality series “America’s Next Top Model.”
The network has ordered a pilot for “Operation Fabulous,” starring “Top Model” regulars Jay Manuel and J. Alexander and executive produced by “Top Model” chiefs Tyra Banks and Ken Mok.
On “Fabulous,” “Jay and J,” as Manuel and Alexander are called on “Top Model,” will travel the country giving women makeovers. In various towns, the duo will select five participants and give them “Top Model”-style overhauls — how to dress, wear their hair and makeup and bring out their confidence with the support of family, friends and their community.
The project seeks to capitalize on a fan-favorite “Model” segment, when contestants are given head-to-toe high-fashion makeovers supervised by Alexander.
Manuel and Alexander have been with “Model” since the series’ debut on UPN in 2003. Manuel is the creative director of show’s photo shoots; Alexander is a runway expert who has been a judge for the past few seasons.
“Model” airs twice a year on the CW. Although ratings have ebbed in recent years, the reality show remains the network’s highest-rated series.
“Fabulous” would mark the third fashion-themed reality series on CW from Banks and Mok, who also executive produce the network’s series “Stylista,” slated to debut October 22, which features contestants vying for an editorial position at Elle magazine.
We’ve been talking about Stylista for a while now.
H&M has just come out saying that they’re partnering with The CW for the new series, which premieres Wednesday, October 22 at 9:00 p.m. ET.
As you know, 11 determined fashionistas will vie to prove themselves to Fashion News Director and Elle Accessories Editor Anne Slowey and Creative Director Joe Zee from Elle magazine.
And the winner will receive a full year’s clothing allowance from H&M.
No word on exactly how much money the winner will get.
Watch a preview and meet the cast.
It’s not often I take a look at Jet magazine to check out who’s wearing what.
But their October 6, 2008 issue warranted a second look.
Jada Pinkett Smith graces the cover in a stunning black number.
She chats on her life as Will Smith’s wife and her life as a mom, singer, writer, etc., etc.
“As a Black woman I’ve really been trying to craft a line in my creative life to show that we can do anything,” she tells the mag.
The issue is on newstands now.

Seems like it was just yesterday when we posted news about Kim Kardashian’s launch of the “Vote for Kim” T-Shirt.
Thanks to Kim getting the boot from Dancing With The Stars, the life cycle of the recently launched apparel has come to an abrupt end.
Good news is, Kim’s taking her dismissal well, according to her blog post today.
Bad news is, if you bought a shirt, it’s probably useless (unless your name happens to be Kim).
A final check at Kim’s store shows them still retailing at $22.95.
I think it’s time for a markdown!
Bravo’s excited about the return of Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style.
And we are too!
The show premiers Thursday, Oct. 2 at 11 PM ET/PT.
It will head back to its regular timeslot on Thursday, Oct. 16 at 10 PM ET/PT.
This time around, his “fashion accomplice” is Gretta Monahan, fashion expert, personal stylist and owner of Grettacole Spas and Salons, and Gretta Luxe Boutiques.
But Gunn and Monahan won’t be making anyone over.
“With tough love and guidance,” say the folks at Bravo, “they’ll help people make themselves over.”
