Do you love Charlaine Harris? I hear you scream “Of Course!” We all do… which is why we are all pumped that CBS is developing a NEW TV series based on Charlaine Harris’ Harper Connelly series of books! The show will be called ‘Grave Sight’, like the first novel in the Harper Connelly series.
“Any of you reading Variety today saw the happy news that the Harper Connelly books are a prospective series for CBS. We’ll know for sure some time around January. Kam Miller, a writer with a great track record, is the project head, and I’m lucky enough to have the amazing company Scott Free (executive producers Ridley Scott and Tony Scott) on the team, too. Keep your fingers crossed for the success of this project,” Charlaine Harris said.

With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.

What makes a star these days? Thanks to YouTube and Reality TV programs it appears that anybody can become famous. If you’re life is filled with dramas, all night partying, cool jobs with all the perks, and you want to be famous without putting in the hard yards just become a reality TV star!
I don’t like using the word ‘star’ when it comes to people who have shot to fame basically because they’ve had cameras follow them throughout their day to day lives, in what we as an audience are meant to believe is totally unscripted, genuine, O.M.G jaw-dropping drama. Having said that, it hasn’t stopped me from watching shows like Laguna Beach, The Hills (but only up until LC left, because let‘s face it, it was always meant to be her show) Keeping Up With The Kardashians and The City, to name just a few!

A 16 year-old You-Tube singing sensation with a hairstyle that could rival Zac Efron, is now the hottest name to be uttered by tweens the world over since Robert Pattinson made his Twilight debut. He has the power to send young girls into hyperventilating meltdowns and if merely typing his name could bring about the mass hysteria created whenever he’s seen, heard or spoken about, I’m pretty sure his powers would cause a computer system crash bigger than the Y2K threat! He is the one, the only… Justin Bieber! ... it’s okay all systems are still running!
So what is it about this boy that has set hearts aflutter?
