  • - Kelly Bishop, who played "Emily Gilmore" on Gilmore Girls, is starring in a production of "Steel Magnolias" at the Paper Mill Playhouse here in NJ (which was fantastic, by the way.) DH and I went to the show on Sunday evening and decided to wait by the stage door to see if we could meet her. When she came out, she stopped and talked with us for over 20 minutes! [...] She said she really misses GG and would LOVE to do a movie! [...] Apparently if Amy was still writing at the end of the show, she would not have had Lorelei and Chris marry and split in the middle of the season, but would have had them together in the end saying, "it's always been you...we belong together...this is the way it should be..." and have them marry at the end. I'd rather see Lorelei with Luke, though, so I'm glad it ended that way. I want to see what happens to everyone, too! - Riska@FanForum

  • - Interview with Kelly Bishop about Steeling Magnolias "There's no question that they're both grande dames," says the actress, who's portraying Clairee Belcher in "Steel Magnolias" at the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, where previews begin Wednesday. "Both think highly of themselves." Bishop is referring to Belcher and to the matriarch she played for seven seasons on the WB's hit TV series "Gilmore Girls." The actress particularly enjoyed the episode in which Emily opened the door of her mansion, saw her grown, estranged daughter Lorelai, and icily asked, "Is it Christmas?" - Danke@FanForum

  • Ausiello Exclusive Scooplets -Know what time it is? It's time for me to put on my Armchair Casting Director hat, that's what time it is. As all you Ausiello Scoop newsletter subscribers first learned yesterday, Gossip Girl is introducing Serena's "wealthy, manipulative and larger-than-life" grandmother — a role that sounds tailor-made for a certain acid-tongued Gilmore Girls matriarch named Kelly Bishop. No worries, I'm on the case. I've already contacted both exec producer Josh Schwartz and Bishop's agent. With any luck, I'll be able to announce something offical in next week's Ask Ausiello. - gjoni@FanForum

  • LG - Life's Good - Bishop remembers Walsh
    Kelly Bishop, who played the tough-talking Sheila in the original production of "A Chorus Line," came to Auburn Friday to celebrate the life of fellow Broadway cast member Thommie Walsh, who died there June 16. Bishop described herself, Walsh and Priscilla Lopez as a triad who worked and played hearty during their time in the landmark show. But for the last six years, she has been playing the starchy, patrician Emily Gilmore, mother of Lorelai on TV's "Gilmore Girls." In a brief offstage conversation, she said their off-screen bond was closer than the on-screen connection, where constant friction was the norm between Emily and Lorelai. "She (Lauren Graham) was truly my daughter," says Bishop. Bishop also says she has great respect for Graham, putting her in the same acting pantheon as Cate Blanchett. - gossipcomm
