DC talks with Bitchy Bangs Melissa Fumero at OLTL press day!

fumeros

Ah, the amazing origin of “Bitchy Bangs”, the dubious nickname given by Daytime Confidential’s Luke Kerr, to Adriana Cramer’s change of  ‘tude” and new “do” back in 2008.   Now it comes full circle as DC’s Jillian Bowe visited with Melissa Fumero direct from the press day in New York today when One Life opened its door for media to interview the Cramer gals: Fumero, DePaiva, the returning Tognoni, Strasser and Bonnarigo.   Read some excepts from the chat!

Melissa Fumero on her transformation to love-t0-hate bitch wich coincided with her new hairdo!” It was so hilarious how everything happened at the same time. Basically, my contract was up and I had a little break before I came back as recurring to finish my storyline. I was there until June or whatever. So on the break, I got this feeling and all of a sudden, “I’m not under contract! I’m going to cut my hair. I’m going to cut bangs! I’m not going to ask permission!” So I did! [Laughs] Four years and I got my moment of rebellion! [Laughs]. So I came back and everyone loved it and whatever. When I came back and I saw the script, all of a sudden Adriana was standing up for herself and being bitchy and then there was more standing up for herself and being stronger and kind of taking the reigns, and saying, “I’m not going to lose my man”, and I thought, “Perfect, I got this sassy haircut and their making Adriana sassy, finally.” It was just a kind of weird coincidence that those two things happened and then I don’t remember if the fans started saying “Bitchy Bangs” first…

Melissa Fumero on how the phrase” Bitchy Bangs” caught fire: “So then it caught on, and then they wrote it in the script, and I said, “Oh my God! Are you really going to make me say this?” I thought it was funny because people had already started calling me that, but I remember the line and I had to sort of toss it away because it was very obvious. I was like, “Are you really going to make me say this? Am I really going to acknowledge this?” I though it was fun and funny, I loved that Adriana became “Bitchy Bangs!”

Felicity Huffman Reports To Prison To Serve Sentence For College Admissions Scandal

Former Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman, reported to a federal prison to start to serve her 14-day sentence for her participation in the college admissions scandal that saw affluent parents use illegal means including bribery to get their children into elite educational institutions.

On Tuesday, Huffman surrendered herself to authorities at the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California which is said to be 35 miles east of San Francisco.  Felicity actually entered the prison facility earlier than her court-ordered date of October 25th.

Coincidentally, the prison that Huffman is serving her sentence also housed very well-known inmates including: Patty Hearst, Heidi Fleiss, and Sara Jane Moore, who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975.  Forbes Magazine named the facility one of America’s top 10 “cushiest” prisons back in 2009.

Unlike former Edge of Night actress, Lori Loughlin, who was also caught up in the scandal and has plead not-guilty to charges levied against her and her husband, Huffman did pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to arrange for her daughter’s SAT score to be falsified.  In addition, Huffman was fined $30,000, and must perform 250 hours of community service and spend a year on probation.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling of the District of Massachusetts, who is the the supervising prosecutor, said Loughlin should expect a tougher sentence than Huffman if she is convicted during an interview on a Boston TV station expressing: “I don’t think I’d be giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman.”
