NEWS: Holly Gagnier Lawsuit Sunday Night Ratings; Netflix Passes HBO In Paid US Subscribers; Fruit Cellar Coming To BATES MOTEL

Former Soap Actress Holly Gagnier Accused of Sabotaging Movie Deal for THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL's Hunter Tylo
Former ONE LIFE TO LIVE and DAYS OF OUR LIVES actress Holly Gagnier is being sued by 80-year-old Patricia McCoy, who claims to have been the actress’ ballet teacher for 15 years, from the time Gagnier was six years old.

In her complaint, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court last week, McCoy claims that Gagnier tried to sabotage a potential movie deal between McCoy and Tylo, based on McCoy’s 1999 book “The American Dream Has Put Our Souls to Sleep.” McCoy claims that she struck up a deal with Tylo for a script based on the book, with Tylo starring in the potential movie. However, according to the suit, in September Gagner called Tylo’s manager and trash-talked McCoy in an effort to spoil the agreement.

HOMELAND showrunner on that huge twist, and defending season 3
[SPOILER from Sunday's episode] The Emmy-winning Showtime drama series’ first few episodes this fall showed Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) locked in a mental institution, publicly humiliated, betrayed by the CIA and — most hurtfully — thrown under the bus by her closest ally and father figure Saul (Mandy Patinkin). It was a brutal arc that left some viewers frustrated and dismayed. Then at the very end of tonight’s hour, there was this revelation: Carrie and Saul have been secretly in cahoots to ruin her reputation to lure out the mastermind responsible for last season’s memorial bombing. Suddenly it seems Carrie isn’t a reckless victim, but as the episode’s “Game On” title suggests, very much in the game, and has been this whole time.

Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose: FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS cast's casual reunion
Sure, it’s just one Instagram photo. But it’s an Instagram photo with Street, Saracen, Smash, Luke, and even Herc, and for any FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS fan, that’s enough to get us, well, teary-eyed, broken-hearted and… lost at the sight of our favorite Dillon football players.

Posted by Scott Porter (Jason Street), the photo shows him and his former costars Matt Lauria (Luke), Gaius Charles (Smash), Zach Gilford (Matt Saracen), and Kevin Rankin (Herc) catching a break on #SundayFunday. It’s a small cast gathering, but it almost makes us forget that FNL isn’t on the fast-track back to the big screen.
