Environment Man: The Movie

By Alan Smithee

The Hollywood rumor mill has it that Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are teaming with the Wachowski Brothers to produce and direct "Environment Man: The Movie."  I used my connections to get a peek at the super secret preproduction script.

It appears to be a combination of "The Matrix" meets "Purple Rain."  Eman is working on the sound track and Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga are rumored to be romantic leads in the film. 

The 3-D sci-fi action thriller has a $200 million production budget and will be distributed worldwide.  Environmental Man has committed to a world tour to support the film.

Eman Linked To Nicki Minaj?

By Susie Centsativ

Onika Tanya Maraj, better known as Nicki Minaj, is being linked to Environment Man. The hip hop world rumor mill is not confirming whether the link is professional or romantic. Reps for both would not comment for the record. Their fans want to know if they will perform together in 2012.

Minaj achieved commercial success after releasing three mixtapes between 2007 and 2009 and being signed to Young Money Entertainment in August 2009. Minaj released her debut album, "Pink Friday" in November 2010. It quickly became a commercial success, peaking at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 and being certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) a month after its release.

"This Week With Donna Brazile"

AAEA Calls on ABC to Give Donna Brazile a Chance At Hosting "This Week."

Donna Brazile
AAEA believes Donna Brazile would be a great host of the show.  We called for her to get the hosting job when George Stephanopoulos left to host Good Morning America (GMA).  Now George evidently has two jobs because he is coming back to "This Week" while still hosting GMA.  Evidently ABC got impatient with Christiane Amanpour inability to move out of 3rd place (2.3 million viewers) behind "Meet The Press" (2.92 million) and "Face The Nation" (2.86 million). Amanpour left her post as CNN's chief international correspondent after 27 years to host "This Week," but is now returning to CNN.


GIVE DONNA A CHANCE.  There is no better political mind Inside the Beltway (or Outside the Beltway).  She brings that New Orleans 'flavor' to the airways and is a no-nonsense political tactician.  Donna has a unique 'look' and is clearly a personality (and we know she has been holding back).  At a very minimum, give Donna the same 16 months given to Christiane. Donna also has a certain 'flair.'  She recently made a special guest appearance on "The Good Wife."
 
When the suits at ABC see this article, we hope they will take our advice and give Donna a chance.  We also think the ratings would overtake both "Meet The Press" and "Face The Nation."
