Kristin Chenoweth to Co-Star in ABC Dramedy Pilot ‘Good Christian Bitches’
March 15, 2011

Deadline.com is reporting that Broadway (and BroadwayWorld) favorite Kristin Chenoweth will be co-starring in the pilot for the new ABC dramedy – Good Christian Bitches. Chenoweth will co-star with Leslie Bibb and will play Darlene, the beautiful and manipulative head of this group of women, the G.C.Bs. They report that “A classic Dallas housewife and villain motivated by her skewed sense of goodness, Darlene is a good Christian woman who goes to church regularly, knows her Scripture, and has no compunctions about breaking a few Commandments here and there.

Bill Maher: Never A Winner, But Always “The Winner”

Mister D: Some people are just too smart for their own good and that’s just not the popular thing. However, in my book, Bill Maher will always be The Winner in whatever category you want to put him in….hands down…people just have a hard time with the truth I have found in my own personal life and it seems that way as a whole, too. We like our lives wrapped up in pretty little lies…little white lies…and so it goes….

Bill Maher, always a bride’s maid
The ‘Real Time‘ host is nominated for the 22nd time, but if history is a predictor, he’ll lose. Again.
