Plot details from “Sex and the City: The Movie” were exceedingly difficult to come by during the film’s production, so it's not surprising that the sequel’s story lines are similarly well-guarded. However, a look at the show’s shooting schedule provides some clues to what might be in store.
First up: Looks like there could be a gay wedding. Life & Style is reporting that the shooting schedule calls for a wedding scene to take place at a Connecticut Inn, and the guest list includes Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda, plus Carrie's pal Stanford Blatch and his mother and father.
“All signs point to a gay union between Stanford and Anthony Marentino, who’s required to wear a black tuxedo in the scene,” according to the magazine. “Slated as the entertainment: Liza Minnelli.”
Also, it looks like the women of “SATC” were too much for Dubai — the film was considered too racy to be shot there. Instead, the production will head to Morocco, according to L&S, and they’ll shoot in Erfoud, Rabat and Marrakech.
And finally: As if there wasn’t enough talk about Miley Cyrus growing up too fast, set insiders are saying Cyrus has been approached for a guest role in the film.
“She hasn’t confirmed,” according to the insider who spoke to L&S.
Rihanna’s dad not happy with topless pic
Just days after her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown was sentenced following his guilty plea for assault, Rihanna appeared in the September issue of Italian Vogue. Among the photos in the spread: one of Rihanna topless.
U.S. & World
Dad, not surprisingly, didn’t approve. “The photo was disturbing,” Ronald Fenty told Us Weekly.
Fenty was less serious when it came to Chris Brown's recent appearance on “Larry King Live.” “The costume he wore was so funny,” he said. “That bow tie thing. He needs to bury that.”
Janet Jackson jumps on the tribute bandwagon
Janet Jackson has barely said a word publicly since the death of her brother Michael, but that silence is coming to an end soon. Jackson is working on a MTV Video Music awards tribute to her brother, according to those working closely with her. No details yet on what she might do, but as long as it’s a go, expect it to be somewhat understated.
“It’s all about getting people to forget about the Super Bowl,” said one person who works with Janet, referring to the 2004 controversy where part of Jackson's breast was exposed during the halftime show of the big game. “She needs to get that behind her, she’s not quite there yet.”
The MTV Video Music Awards are scheduled to air live on Sept. 13.
‘The Bachelor’ all-star edition
A reality show idea that actually makes good sense: “The Bachelor” all-star edition is in the works.
The show is said to be a one-time reunion of past contestants, but “they will bring back people from the very beginning of the franchise,” a source told In Touch.
The series, which will feature fan favorites such as DeAnna Pappas' former fiance Jesse Csincsak, is set to begin filming in January and will launch with a three-day Mexican cruise.
“It’s going to be a bit racier than ‘The Bachelor,’” the source said.
