Nothing is official, but rumors have arisen that following his troubles with casting an all-star duo in his remake of A STAR IS BORN, Eastwood is ready to move on. Beyonce had originally signed on, but backed out due to prior commitments. It now appears that Eastwood's next project may be in bringing the The Four Seasons to the big screen.

Raising funds for the Ray of Light Foundation combines her passions for art & education. "I cannot accept a world where women or girls are wounded, shot or killed for either going to school or teaching in girls' schools. We don't have time to be complacent," Madonna said.

I'm normally so much harder... I thought I was a bit generous last night." Amidst it all, Tony Dovolani was sent home with partner Wynonna Judd (photo), and commented, "The judges are not there to apologize. They say what they say and they mean it... They can't take emotions into account."
