''Flintstones'' prequel: A peek inside

Mark Addy, Jane Krakowski, ...

Universal Pictures is rolling out its prehistoric prequel to 1994’s ”The Flintstones” on April 28, but don’t hold your breath waiting for Rosie O’Donnell’s trademark giggle. ”The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas” stars a younger (and less costly) version of the original cast, with ”The Full Monty”’s Mark Addy as Fred, Stephen Baldwin as Barney, ”Ally McBeal”’s Jane Krakowski as Betty, and ”3rd Rock From the Sun”’s Kristen Johnston as Wilma.

”America’s Next Top Model”: To catch a thief

In the age-old coat hanger versus runway model debate, I’ve usually leaned towards the Joan Crawford special. Hangers are reliable, they show up on time, and they never burst into tears because they ate a breath mint the night before and now they’re, like, too bloated to live.
