  • Cybill Shepherd will join Jennifer Love Hewitt in an untitled Lifetime movie about “a body waxer at a woman’s salon who is stunned to discover that her former Texas homecoming-queen daughter (Hewitt) is working as a prostitute to pay the bills.” Surprisingly, the film is based on a true story, and was not written by manatees. [THR]
  • Joe Biden has landed a TV gig: the Vice President will appear on The View this Thursday. Big f—ing deal! [AP]
