|It's Official - No
Well we all kind of figured this was going to happen (or more to
the point not happen) but now Rob has confirmed it. There will
be NO Xena movie (at
least not with Lucy and Renee in the roles).
Brent Hartinger interviewed Rob and sent me a note to alert me
to his interview.
Posted on 21 April 2009 by Brent
Rob Tapert, the co-creator of television’s Xena: Warrior
, has given up hope that there will ever be a
feature film version of the classic show, at least not any
time soon or starring series leads Lucy Lawless and Renee
“It’s something that just won’t happen,” Tapert
told TheTorchOnline.com in an exclusive interview. “I don’t
think it’s going to happen for Lucy and Renee. In twenty
years or ten years, in some amount of years, like
McGyver, like Charlie’s Angels, it [could]
happen like that [with other actresses].”

I have to say I am beyond stoked about this figure - I'm thrilled
to tiny little bits that in this economic tough time, people have
been so generous with their time, their money and their willingness
to give for the greater good.
I've just received the final figure from Starship together with
the ROC Outreach Fund and Adrienne's charity.
The figure comes to $18,165.24
Last year we raised $16,173.86 which is an increase of $1992!
I want to take the time to thank my two sidekicks - Roger and
Christa for their hard work in shipping everything out and the
support they have given me throughout the auction. I'm so proud of
them and also proud of this fandom. Thank you also goes to those who
came up to me at the last convention or emailed and gave me items or
offered their help and in particular Julie Eaton, Kim Manrique, Mesh
& Bev, KG MacGregor, Val Foster, Barbara Bruno, Marilyn Edwards,
Tiger and Tracy. Hopefully I haven't forgotten anyone. You guys
I also want to take the time to thank our Xena alumni who took
the time to make this auction even more special: Lucy Lawless, Renee
O'Connor, Adrienne Wilkinson, Katherine Fugate, Steven Sears,
Melissa Good and Simone Lahbib (who isn't a Xena alumni but took the
time to help out and has been adopted as one).
Thank you everyone!

|Vore for Renee Top
100 List on AfterEllen.com
It's voting time again on AfterEllen.
You can nominate Renee in the Hot 100 list.
It's time for The AfterEllen.com Hot 100 again! Time to tell the world
who lesbian and bi women think are sexy — because even with all the
increased visibility we've had in the last decade, heterosexual men
and women still dominate the discussion about who and what is
attractive, online, on TV, and in magazines like People and
Which makes creating this list not only fun, but a little bit
In the form below, you can submit your nominations for the 10
women you think are the hottest women on the planet. They can be gay
or straight, young or old, and of any race or nationality —
basically, any woman who turns you on. The woman with the most votes
will be No. 1, the woman with the second highest number of votes
will be No. 2, and so on down the list (which means it doesn't
matter in what order you list the names in the form).
Voting will stay open for two weeks until April 24th, and then
we'll publish the results on Monday, May 11th. To keep you
entertained in between, we'll feature one of the 100 on the blog
each weekday from April 27th to May 8th, and you can guess where she
landed on the list.
This year, you can also submit nominees for companion lists in
the following categories: 10 Hottest Out Lesbian/Bi Women,
10 Hottest Women of Color, and 10 Hottest Women Over 40.
And yes, you can nominate someone for more than one list. To submit
up to 5 nominees in each of these separate polls just click on the
relevant icon (before or after completing your Hot 100 submissions
