Life is good in general.

  • Work is good.
  • No love life to speak of but I have some awesome crushes and that’s all I can handle right now.
  • I’m catching up on Castle (Hi Nathan! I’ve missed you.)
  • I have great friends.
  • I’m excited for E-Fabulous who is starting her career change. So proud!

I’m looking forward to:

  • My trip to IL for cousin Jennifer’s wedding.
  • My trip to IL for the family reunion (wish me luck, I’m still working this one out).
  • The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner! (or Midnight Sun, whichever comes out first. LOL)
  • The Eclipse movie (leg hitch and tent scene here we come!)
  • The next Sookie Stackhouse book.
  • True Blood!
  • The next A Song of Ice and Fire book (please GRRM?!?)
  • Make It Monday (even those E-Fabulous and I had dinner last night, sorta, and will have dinner again tonight).

Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) doesn’t expect much when she moves to the small town of Forks, Washington, until she meets the mysterious and handsome Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson)—a boy who’s hiding a dark secret: he’s a vampire. As their worlds and hearts collide, Edward must battle the bloodlust raging inside him as well as a coterie of undead that would make Bella their prey. Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling sensation by Stephenie Meyer, Twilight adds a dangerous twist to the classic story of star-crossed lovers.

‘Twilight’ DVD Will Feature Bonus Scene From ‘Midnight Sun’

That’s right, Twilighters. Director Catherine Hardwicke has revealed exclusively to MTV News that the forthcoming “Twilight” DVD will feature a deleted scene from none other than “Midnight Sun,” the book which tells the story from Edward’s perspective that author Stephenie Meyer abandoned when it was prematurely leaked online.

Watch her spill the beans below and then click here to watch our entire interview with Catherine Hardwicke. And don’t forget to tune in to MTV this Friday at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT to watch the first episode of “Spoilers,” which will feature an exclusive “Twilight” clip and scenes from the MTV special fan-screening with the cast.

MEG RYAN 

 

 

Every teenager in the country is reading STEPHENIE MEYER’S “Twilight” series of books (and will soon be watching the movies!). I am thrilled to announce that Stephenie is giving me a rare TV interview on Wednesday! Her latest book in the series, “Breaking Dawn,” is about a teenage girl who is torn between her love for a caring vampire and a sweet-natured werewolf. (Why are the good ones always taken?!) Stephenie was also writing a new book from Edward the Vampire’s point of view, but certain chapters got leaked online, and now she might not even release it! (I’m gonna try my best to talk her into it, or at least have her give me the scoop on what happens!) Then, throughout the ’80s and ’90s, movie producers refused to make a romantic comedy unless a certain blonde superstar agreed to appear, however, if I was ever unavailable, they would always offer the role to my guest, MEG RYAN! Meg took a few years off to spend time with her family and adopt a beautiful little girl, but she’s back and starring in the new film “The Women.” I’m gonna play a game with her called “Peg Meg” — which I’m certain will become the newest craze in the country. Plus, don’t miss a performance by NE-YO who will be doing one of my favorite songs of the summer, “Closer,” from his latest CD, “Year of the Gentleman.”
