Sylvester Stallone has given up his one-time dream of playing Edgar Allen Poe in a big-budget biopic after realizing he's the wrong man to play the horror writer. Stallone insists he's still very much involved in plans to make a Poe movie, which he has written but he accepts the idea of him directing and starring in the film has become a "big parody", and he's glad the project never got off the ground with him as the author.

He explains, "I do have a script that's gone through 20 mutations. Every few years I take it out and rework it and update it. What fascinates me about Poe is that he was such an iconoclast. It's a story for every young man or woman who sees themselves as a bit outside the box, or has been ostracized during their life as an oddball or too eccentric. It didn't work for him either."

Rapper/actress Eve is single again after splitting from her Ghanaian boyfriend. The "Let Me Blow Your Mind" star embarked on a relationship with the African businessman earlier this year after ending her romance with Teodorin Nguema Obiang, the son of the president of Equatorial Guinea.

Eve spent her spare time flying between her native U.S. and Ghana to see her lover, but she admits the long distance and their different outlooks on life took its toll and she recently broke off the relationship. She tells Sister 2 Sister magazine, "I was going to Ghana for a while just because that's where he is from. He's an amazing man. We keep in touch every so often. He was a great guy, but I knew it wasn't right. We definitely didn't have the same things going on in our heads, as far as what it is we wanted as a life. He pretty much was down to do whatever I wanted to do and I don't need that, you know?"

July 16, 2010 04:10:01 GMT


The 17 designers who will compete for the title as latest winner of "Project Runway" have been unveiled, so has the new format. The reality competition show hosted by Heidi Klum will now run half an hour longer because the show's spin-off "Models of the Runway" has been scrapped.

Klum said there are questions why one is sent home and others aren't. More behind-the-scene footage hopefully would give an answer. "For example, today we have an Elimination Day. It's going to go on four or five hours," Klum explained. "On the show it only has 10-15 minutes. So if there is a very special decision day, when the judges might not agree with one another or something really happens, now we have the freedom to show certain things much longer than we ever could before."
