Spoiler alert! A shocking on-set photo reveals a potential twist for Karen & Ivy.
Karen (Katharine McPhee) may have nabbed the lead role in Bombshell‘s out-of-town tryouts, but when the musical finally comes to Broadway, there could be a very different face donning that awful Marilyn Monroe wig. Smash is currently filming its second season, and HollywoodLife.com snapped a photo — it’s filming two feet from our NYC office — that implies two major shakeups for Bombshell.
The stars of ‘Revenge,’ ‘Smash’ and ‘Pretty Little Liars’ give HollywoodLife.com a taste of what’s to come!
Happy hump day, HollywoodLifers! To celebrate the week’s halfway point, I’ve got fresh spoilers from three of my favorites: Revenge, Smash and Pretty Little Liars. There’s wedding talk, breakup gossip, and a surprising confession — so start reading.
Plus, Katharine gushes over working with Jennifer Hudson, who joins the NBC musical in its second season.
If you thought Karen (Katharine McPhee) scoring the lead role in Bombshell would effectively put an end to rivalry with Ivy (Megan Hilty) on Smash, think again! “There will definitely still be rivalry,” Katharine told HollywoodLife.com at the sixth anniversary benefit for Malaria No More on Nov. 8 in NYC. “We’ll see them pitted against each other in the future.”
NBC confirms Nikki will appear on the show’s upcoming second season — but will she be playing herself?
Nikki Blonsky can hear the bells again — but this time, they’re chiming the NBC theme song! The Hairspray star is joining the second season of Smash, NBC confirms to HollywoodLife.com, though details of her role are being kept under wraps for now.
Watch J-Hud’s character warn Karen (about Ivy?) in the first official clip from season two.
Smash doesn’t return with new episodes until Jan. 2013 (I know, it’s a tragedy) but thanks to NBC, we have our first look at Jennifer Hudson as Veronica Moore — and she’s got some words for Katharine McPhee‘s Karen. “Someone’s always waiting to take you down, honey,” Veronica says. Gee, I wonder if she could be referring to Ivy (Megan Hilty)?
A new report reveals Jaime Cepero & Razza Jaffrey will no longer be series regulars when ‘Smash’ returns in 2013.
Well, Smash fans, I’ve got some good news — and some great news: comic-book villain Ellis (Jaime Cepero) and no-good cheater Dev (Raza Jaffrey) will be much less visible in the show’s upcoming second season, EW.com reports.
How do you feel about Ivy after last night’s finale? Megan gives HollywoodLife.com the scoop on what’s to come.
Between (briefly) battling drug addiction, getting her heart broken and watching her dream role go to another girl, Megan Hilty‘s Ivy had a rough go of it on the first season of Smash — and her drama culminated on the May 14 season finale, which ended with her about to down an entire bottle of pills. Fortunately, Megan assures HollywoodLife.com that Ivy’s not going anywhere. In fact, she’s got big dreams for the blonde bombshell in season two!
A star is born! Do you think the right girl was chosen?
Not only was the May 14 season finale of Smash the best episode since its critically acclaimed pilot, but it also served to reinforce a few truths I’ve come to accept during the course of the season: Ellis (Jaime Cepero) sucks, Dev (Raza Jaffrey) is a douche, Ivy (Megan Hilty) is chemically imbalanced, and Karen (Katharine McPhee) — well, Karen is a star!
The stars of ‘Smash,’ ‘Make It Or Break It’ & more tease what’s to come as their seasons — and series — come to a close.
Season finales are always bittersweet occasions. While I’m sad to see some of my favorite shows say goodbye for the summer, I’m also excited to see the epic cliffhangers they all have in store for us. And since this week is bringing us some of the season’s most intense finales — The Vampire Diaries, Once Upon A Time, Smash and the very last episode of Make It Or Break It — I couldn’t resist sharing some scoop with you.
Who will step up to the spotlight and save the show? That’s the question on the mind of every viewer — and chorus girl.
I never thought I’d say this, but I think someone has finally surpassed Ellis (Jaime Cepero) in the race for the least likable character on Smash — and that person is Mr. Dev Sundaram (Raza Jaffrey). On the May 6 episode, after waking up in bed with Ivy (Megan Hilty), Dev actually had the nerve to re-propose to Karen (Katharine McPhee). And this time, she wasn’t “in tech,” so she said yes.
Happy hump day, fellow TV addicts! Allow me to break up your week with scoop on five of your (and my) favorite shows.
Now that we’ve officially entered May sweeps, our favorite shows are readying their most outrageous story lines — so I figured this would be the perfect day for my first-ever Spoiler Party, a collection of scoops that didn’t quite make their way into stories on HollywoodLife.com. So let’s get started, shall we?
HollywoodLife.com has your exclusive sneak peek of Katharine McPhee’s next show stopper.
Karen (Katharine McPhee) may not be ready to say “I do” to Dev (Raza Jaffrey), but the couple is still headed to the chapel on the May 7 episode of Smash. The Bombshell gang goes on a field trip to Sam’s (Leslie Odom Jr.) church, and for reasons I’m sure will become clear once we see the episode, Karen steals the show with a powerful gospel number.
I know it’s a musical, but this week’s ‘Smash’ had more partner-swapping than a square dance.
Am I crazy, or do Julia (Debra Messing) and Frank (Brian d’Arcy James) now have the most stable relationship out of all the couples on Smash? By the time the curtains dropped on the April 30 episode, both Karen (Katharine McPhee) and Ivy’s (Megan Hilty) love lives were in shambles as their boyfriends spent the hour getting handsy with other dames.
Since meeting on the set of ‘Smash,’ things have reportedly been heating up between Nick Jonas and Megan Hilty. Keep reading to find out more!
Age is nothing but a number for Nick Jonas and Smash star Megan Hilty. Despite a 12-year age gap, sources tell the New York Post the two have been “seeing a lot of each other” ever since Nick guest stared on the NBC show.
Hell hath no fury like two potential understudies scorned! Rebecca better watch her back.
Just when you thought Ellis (Jaime Cepero) was the worst thing to happen to Bombshell, along came Rebecca Duvall (Uma Thurman) on the April 16 episode of Smash to remind us all that, despite what Dan Savage claims, it doesn’t always get better. After butchering “Let Me Be Your Star,” Rebecca introduced a few creative changes to the show: In a nutshell, longer scenes and less singing — which is great for a musical.
