Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Shawn R. Jones Poetry, CLARK DARK Has Updates

You Think What presents Clark Dark with his Celebrity Round-Up entertainment news. Clark:

Thanks, You. First on our list is that popular or infamous, depending on your point of view, celebutante Paris Hilton. MTV has announced it has purchased for broadcast 10 episodes of Hilton's new reality show "My New BFF", a reality competition series which will follow the former "star" of The Simple Life on her quest to find a new best friend. As you may recall she and fellow celebutante and co-star of "The Simple Life", Nicole Richie are not as close as they once were.
According to MTV entertainment president Brian Graden
"It's undeniable that the world is always talking about Paris Hilton, and the same could be said about MTV. Paris is one of the most searched icons on the Web... Now MTV will reveal the life of Paris, turn her fans into friends, and see what it takes to get close to one of the world's most well-known personalities."Starting this week, fans will be permitted to determine which of the promising BFFs will appear on the show through a website designed expressly for that purpose. The possible BFFs will post their bios with blogs, pictures, and videos explaining why they should be chosen to appear on the show. Hilton fans will determine if they agree. Paris Hilton's "My New BFF" is produced by MTV and Ish Entertainment and co-created and executive produced by Hilton, with co- creator credits to Michael Hirschorn and Stella Stolper who are also serving as executive producers along with Chris Choun and Jason Moore.

Reports abound that Britney Spears and Mel Gibson shared dinner on Saturday evening in California. Gibson, who recently completed the probation order stemming from his 2006 arrest for driving under the influence, is said to be a vocal supporter of Spears in her ongoing and well-publicized battles. Gibson is known as an actor, director and producer.

Beyonce Knowles, Grammy Award winning R&B recording star, and Academy Award winner actor,Adrien Brody are working together on a new film "Cadillac Records" in New Jersey. This film also features one my favorites, actor/comedian Cedric The Entertainer. This cinematic endeavor is written and directed by Darnell Martin.

The film tells the story of the rise and fall of Chess Records a major R&B record label with Beyonce in the role of legendary blues singer Etta James and Brody portraying renown record producer Len Chess. Release date sometime in the future.

Last Thursday night,star of stage, screen and recordings Vanessa Williams, and some other members of the cast of "Ugly Betty" including Mark Indelicato, and Becki Newton, attended a reunion at the Beverly Hills Bebe store where cast member Rebecca Romijn’s new ad campaign was unveiled. "Ugly Betty" returns to television on Monday

Now finally to add some high culture and literary class to this report, Finishing Line Press' newest featured author in the prestigious New Women's Voices series, Shawn R. Jones took sometime off for a weekend get away in the Pennsylvania mountains with her husband businessman Jeff Jones. The couple managed to enjoy the weekend despite a succession of mishaps plaguing their weekend retreat. All is well as Jones plans for the May 9, 2008 release of her new chapbook, "Womb Rain". The pre-release reviews say this one is a winner. The collection of poetry is available for sale now with special incentive for purchase before May 9, 2008. Don't know who Shawn R. Jones, poet is? You'd best hurry to find out.

I'm Clark Dark your entertainment reporter.
