The musical drama’s two-part series finale will air May 26.
If you’re wondering why the lights on Broadway are dimmed, it’s because NBC has officially announced that Smashwill not be returning for a third season. Though the writing has been on the wall for a while — moving the show to Saturdays, following disappointing ratings, was not a good sign — the network finally confirmed our suspicions May 10.
‘Smash’ Series Finale Spoilers
The good news is that fans won’t be totally left hanging once the curtain fall on Smash. Showrunner Josh Safran recently told HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site TVLine that the season’s final hour “was constructed as a series finale.”
Josh also teased that we can expect the following ‘twists’ from the series finale:
1. Someone finds out she’s pregnant. My guess is either Ivy (Megan Hilty) or Julia (Debra Messing).
2. Someone gets arrested. Is Jimmy (Jeremy Jordan) too obvious a guess?
3. A gay guy kisses a straight guy — and the kiss is reciprocated! All of my fingers and toes are crossed for Tom (Christian Borle) and Derek (Jack Davenport).

Rob’s back on the west coast and he’s having a blast! Adorned with a grizzly looking beard, Rob partied well past 2 a.m., before he was spotted hitching a ride home.
Robert Pattinson, 26, was spotted leaving the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood on May 9 without girlfriend Kristen Stewart. Despite leaving the celeb hotspot solo, the Twilight hunk definitely looked like he had a great time!
Robert Pattinson Parties At Chateau Marmont
Rob, sporting a beard, white t-shirt, dark jacket and a black baseball cap jumped into the passenger’s seat of a black car as a friend drove him home. The actor reportedly arrived at the Chateau before 10 p.m. and left the hotel at around 2:20 a.m., according to E! News.
Listen, it’s not a bad thing that Rob had a good time without Kristen. We already know that their relationship is solid as a rock, so it’s okay for Rob and Kristen to have a bit of fun by themselves sometimes. Plus, they had an amazing reunion in NYC earlier this week.
In the great words of Beyonce, bow down, Kanye! Kim Kardashian is on a mission and she wants to purchase a new mansion BEFORE the baby is born, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West went house hunting in Bel Air on May 6, checking out several mansions in the same neighborhood that Rupert Murdoch, Tom Cruise and Jennifer Aniston reside. Kim’s in a hurry, too — she’s “anxious” to put this home buying process behind her before their baby is born.
Kanye West & Kim Kardashian House Hunting
A source close to the couple tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Kim is pressuring Kanye to nail down something for certain here in town. Since she’s about to pop, she wants to know that once all the dust settles, she’ll be in a new place with Kanye. She’s just anxious. She’s got a lot to think about about and just wantsthis whole house s*** behind her.”
And don’t go jumping to conclusions, assuming that there may be trouble in paradise.
Our source adds, “Kanye’s cool. He’s down with copping a pad in L.A. He definitely wants to make sure Kim’s happy and close to her family so she can do her show and s***.”
The Type Of Home Kim & Kanye Are Looking For
The way “something that’s comfortable for the both of them. Something that they can raise a family in and one that they’re going to be in for a while. They’re not just going to hop on the first place they see, it’s gotta feel like home for both of them.”
“I know Kim wants something soon, so over the next week or so they’re going to be looking pretty hard. Kanye wants to find something quick so she can scratch that off her list of things to worry about and just focus on their baby,” our source says.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Kim and Kanye buy a new mansion in Bel Air?
So scary! Khloe and Lamar are the latest celebrities to be added to the list of stars who have been swatted, but the details of this prank phone call are rather alarming!
Police raced to the scene at Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’shouse in Los Angeles, with guns drawn, after a 911 dispatcher received a call claiming that Lamar had been shot! We’re so glad it was a false alarm — cops found Lamar at home, unharmed.
Khloe Kardashian Swatted — Cops Called: Lamar Odom’s Been Shot
This was a full police response, an eyewitness tells TMZ. The 911 dispatcher was told that Lamar and a friend had a heated argument and the friend shot the basketball player.
Not to make any light of this situation, but it seems like it’s only a matter of time before a movie is made about celebrity swattings. There’s already a film, The Bling Ring, based off a group of fame-obsessed teenagers known as the Bling Ring, who used the Internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts in order to rob their homes. This situation sounds eerily similar.
But in all seriousness, we hope those who are guilty are punished — someone could seriously get hurt, especially with cops swarming celebrities’ homes with guns drawn.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Will the SWATTING ever stop?
Farrah Abraham ‘Playboy’ Model? — ‘Teen Mom’ Ready To Show More
Farrah told HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “I probably would do Playboy, but keep it classic and feminine. I think I would be open to that. I am focusing on my restaurant endeavors and modeling and the same things I’ve always done. Maybe doing more books, and maybe a fitness video and those things i’m working on. I’m just being me. I am thinking about writing more music, but way different to what I have done in the past. Like maybe more light hearted and not so serious.”
Kim Kardashian Vs. Farrah Abraham’s Sex Tape — Teen Mom ‘Happy’ For High Sales
Despite it’s high sales, don’t expect a sequel. Even though Farrah would do Playboy, she said that she would never do anything “of this sort ever again (a sex tape), because I dont want any more issues.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Farrah do Playboy?

This week the red carpet was crowded with SO much glamour — but which look did YOU really love? VOTE!
From Kristen Stewart to Nina Dobrev and Blake Lively, so many stars dressed to impress this week. On the red carpet at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6 celebrating the opening of PUNK: Chaos to Couture in NYC at the Met Gala so many stars really took risks — and it totally paid off!
Kristen Stewart Met Gala:
Kristen was definitely one of our favorites of the night in a Stella McCartney jumpsuit that featured lace trim. The starlet looked edgy and cool when she came down the red carpet, sporting a dramatic eye — and she wasn’t the only star who stood out! The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev looked edgy and chic in a custom-made Monique Lhuillier ensemble. It was unlike anything we’ve ever seen on the star — and we loved it!
While KStew and Nina stuck to the theme, gals like Blake opted for full-on glamour, stunning in a strapless Gucci gown.
Even those who didn’t attend the Met Gala managed to catch our attention — and Rihanna was no exception. The songstress manages to turn the sidewalk into her own personal runway and that’s just what she did when she went out to dinner in NYC, sporting a shirt that was completely unbuttoned — magically it stayed perfectly put and covered her assets! RiRi kept the look flirty and fun, tucking the top into a flared skirt.
Check out what other lovely ladies really wowed us and VOTE for which look you love the most.
Justin, you’re clearly very serious about being the best boyfriend you can be to Selena Gomez, now that you’re reunited. HollywoodLife.com has learned exclusively that you’re working hard to make Selena happy – good for you!
Justin Bieber, you are definitely a young man who learns from his mistakes, especially your relationship missteps with Selena Gomez.
Justin Bieber: You’ve Proved Yourself To Selena Gomez
Ever since you finally convinced Selena to fly fourteen hours to Sweden on April 22 to meet you so you could give your romance a second chance, you have totally followed through on the commitments you made to her.
She rightly felt like she needed a boyfriend who was loyal and mature.
She was determined to make the split from you final.
But, after months of pursuing Selena by phone, text, and by sending your friends to see her to lobby for you, you did finally wear her down.
Justin & Selena: Back Together & Making It Work
Fortunately, by the time Selena stepped off that plane in Sweden, you were mentally ready to make the commitment to be the loyal, loving boyfriend that she wanted. You were prepared to step it up, and you have.
Your months away from Selena made you realize that, while there are millions of girls out there who want to date you or be your girlfriend — they are NOT Selena! And Selena was your best friend as well as your girlfriend.
Selena needed you to become more mature, and you admitted to her that you had a lot of growing up to do, and that you were ready to work on that, a source told HollywoodLife.com. Selena was really happy to hear that.
Justin and Selena both want to make it work, the source added. “They grew up together, and they are still obsessed with each other.”
Now, that Selena has had to return to LA for her work commitments, you’ve made sure to tell her how much you love her new video for “Come & Get It,” and you’ve told her that you love her music.
You’ve also been talking to her all the time about all the many things you want to do together with her when you’re back in the U.S.
You’re making it very clear that when you have a break from your tour from May 12 to June 22, you’ll be devoting yourself to being with her and working on your relationship.
Justin, we bet that Selena is impressed so far with the efforts you’re making. If you can keep on this path of maturing and treating her with the love and respect she deserves, you and Selena could make your romance even hotter and happier than before. Do you agree HollywoodLifers? Let me know!
On The Following, anything is possible. At least that’s what Annie told us on Thursday, May 9 at the New York premiere of Star Trek.
So, does that mean she could return in season two after being buried alive? The show does do quite a few dream sequences.
“I don’t know, but I wouldn’t put it beyond the realm of possibility!” she said. “They do flashbacks as part of the show, so why not?”
Now that’s what we wanted to hear!
On season one of The Following, we quickly fell in love with, and then lost many characters — no one was safe! Annie agreed that even though she was a major character, she had no idea when would be her last day at work.
“Shawn Ashmore (who plays Agent Mike Weston) & I talked about it – I think the third episode – and both Shawn and I were sitting on set one evening, and we kinda just looked at each other and were like ‘yeah I guess this is one of those anybody-could-go-at-anytime kind of shows.’ I was very happy I got a great death scene.”
Shawn — who was lucky enough to survive season one, after one heck of a beating, is Annie’s closest friend on set. “We spent a lot of time together, had a lot of laughs!” she told us.
Kevin Bacon Is The ‘Most Generous Guy’ Ever
Annie seems pretty lucky to have a great team of actors to work with! It’s got to be quite the experience to play Agent Parker, who is one of the few women that Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) trusts.
“Oh he’s fantastic,” Annie told us about Kevin. “Honestly. Oh my gosh, I really cannot say enough about him. He is really an actor’s actor.”
Referring to him as “the most generous guy,” Annie explained that being the main character in an hour-long drama takes a lot of work, and Kevin doesn’t ever falter. “[He's] so committed. He was just constantly prepared, always with the energy, always a smile and a spring in his step. It was great!”
So, HollywoodLifers -Do you hope that Agent Parker returns for season two of The Following?
