Actress Cynthia Nixon, who portrays lawyer Miranda Hobbes, told me exclusively that filming could commence in 2009.
“We are definitely talking about it,” said Nixon. “Our hope is, if everything keeps moving forward, we would maybe start shooting summer of next year.”
In the meantime, Nixon passes her time by campaigning for Presidential Candidate Barack Obama. But the Broadway and Silver Screen star had a message specific to those in Scranton who supported Senator Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Presidential Primary.
“Think to yourself, ‘What would Hillary do?’ Hillary would vote for Barack Obama.”
Nixon and I also spoke about gay marriage – and the recent comments by Governor Sarah Palin on a constitution ban of same-sex weddings. The statements didn’t sit well with Nixon, who is an outted lesbian.
The actress is outspoken about Breast Cancer. Nixon is this year’s ambassador for the Susan G. Komen For The Cure Foundation. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Nixon credits her survival of the disease to early detection and her doctor’s flexible schedule.
“I didn’t miss any performances, I had my surgery on a Sunday,” revealed Nixon, who starred on Broadway at the time. She completed her treatments during the show’s run.
If you ever receive the honor to work on set with Nixon, I’d recommend a great excuse before you try calling in sick.
THE WHITE TIE AFFAIR BREEDS HITS, JEALOUSLY
I found myself a bit jealous of Chris Wallace last week.
Wallace fronts The White Tie Affair – a band signed to Epic Records with a single called, “Candle (Sick and Tired).” It is a relatable, catchy track that gained notoriety when MTV’s The Hills featured it.
Enter my envy.
“I met Audrina, maybe a year ago – cause she works at Epic,” said Wallace – who went on to describe Patridge as “genuine.”
Obviously he was not referring to any of Audrina’s hills. Wallace seemed more intrigued with Lauren Conrad, but assured me that his band would not make any non-musical cameos on the show.

On The Hills & “Candle (Sick And Tired)”
On Election 2008, Touring w/ Metro Station
In short, yes, says Dublin-born rocker Lesley Roy.
The Irish pop singer performed inside The Mines for 97 BHT’s Listener Appreciation Party on Saturday. Despite hailing from a country with a woman president for the past 18 years, Roy believes this election is significant, regardless of the candidates’ genders.
“It means a lot to the rest of the world who’s gonna take over,” Roy remarked. “It’s gonna be intense no matter what, female or male.”
The Republic of Ireland elected its first woman head of state in 1990 with Mary Robinson. In 1997, Mary McAleese succeeded her. McAleese won a seven-year term without contention in 2004.
Now Roy calls New York home – and she appreciates the big city amenities.
“I come from such a small town. (Even the smell) is fine, I really don’t mind it.”
In addition to the lovely street scents and swagger on the corner – it seems as if Roy picked up on another New York staple – b-s-ing. MTV’s The Hills has already featured three of the 21 year-old’s tracks from her new LP, Unbeautiful, including the title track. I inquired as to if she watched The Hills – and she followed up “When my songs are on,” with “I do watch it – I follow Lauren (Conrad) and Heidi (Montag) and I do watch it…”
But the act didn’t last long before Roy’s face turned red and she flashed an embarrassed look to Jive Records Promotions Rep Joe Daddio.
“I’m in a lot of trouble right now,” a laughing Roy said.
Don’t worry Lesley – I haven’t caught much of Season 4 either. Then again, I never pretended to.
THE JUICE NO LONGER LOOSE
Talk about the Karma Train slamming on the breaks. A jury found O.J. Simpson guilty on 12 criminal counts – including kidnapping, armed robbery, and burglary. Simpson faces live in prison.
Most intriguing is the timing – the jury reached its verdict exactly 13 years to the day after a different jury of his peers acquitted Orenthal James Simpson on murder charges stemming from the death of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
The guilty verdict emanates from a Las Vegas hotel room encounter-gone-bad – involving a couple of other men, “stolen” collectibles, and handguns.
Simpson will be sentenced in a few months. He faces life in jail.
i know this is a repost, but hd is in my dna…
97 BHT’s Ralphie Aversa sat down inside The Mines with Lesley Roy to chat about Ireland, The Hills, and her debut CD – Unbeautiful.
