Slap Video of Mother Superior and Sister Batril talk about their roles
on Bitch Slap. This video was released quite some time ago but it has
now been added to the Bitch Slap Movie Facebook page. Click on the
image to watch two very gifted actors trying to outdo each other. In
this instance I think Renee wins this round if only for the rosary
beads and praying advice. The look on Lucy's face is just priceless.

For those lucky bods who are going to Comic Con on Saturday, keep an eagle eye out for Renee. She won't be on any panels or promoting Ark but she will be around. Renee posted the following on her Official Forum:
Yes, I will be going on Saturday. I don't have any plans to promote Ark
since they are finalizing it now. I will be walking around taking it
So if you happen to be at Comic Con and see someone that looks like Renee...well it probably is Renee! <g>
Renee's portait ROC in Rio was recently auctioned on ebay (and a portion of that money was to go to charity). Unfortunately some nasty person (I could use another word but I'll be nice and just leave it at nasty) put in a fraudulent bid.
The painting by Lauren that we released on eBay last week, ROC in Rio,
had a fraudulent buyer. Anyway, at some point in the future we will put
it up for sale. I just wanted you all to know it is an original and one
of a kind.
Hopefully the painting will be put back up for auction without someone making a fool of themselves. Ebay is notorious for having fraudulent bids which is very unfortunate because it's such a great service. I guess there will always be someone who will want to be a total boofhead and ruin it for others.

While there were plenty of questions surrounding Gabrielle's
relationship with Xena - Are they or aren't they? Will they or
won't they? Do they already, and it's just not on-screen? - the
one thing everyone agreed on was this: Without Gabrielle, Xena
the Warrior Princess would never have survived.
The Battling Bard of Potidaea could talk her way out of (or
into) anything; her flair for dramatic storytelling saved them
numerous times. She also learned stellar warrior skills, arming
herself with an Amazon staff, and agreeing to fight for the
Together, she and Xena traveled the world, forging literally to
hell and back again.
Their subtext was eclipsed only by the number of times Gabrielle
saved Xena's life, and in the end Lucy Lawless said it best:
"They're married, man."
Because when you find a sidekick like Gabrielle, you want to
make it permanent.
