The true secret of Stevie's shawls to be revealed in “The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks” #AHS

Ryan Murphy Talks Self-Policing, Jessica Lange’s Exit, and What’s Next on American Horror Story: Coven
By Denise Martin

Here's the section on Stevie.

Let’s talk about Stevie Nicks! She’s in two episodes, and she’s singing. Tell me more.
The title of episode 10 is “The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks,” so she’s heavy in it. She was a trouper and came in and did a song. Everyone came in for it. She did autographs and photographs. She was very cool. She talked a lot with the actors and watched, and she was really good in her scene. Later, she called me and said, “You know, I’ve been watching the show obviously, and I’ve been reading the scripts, and do you know you’re doing on the show something I wrote a song about with Fleetwood Mac back in the day? It was a B-side of one of our singles.” And she said the name of the song, which I won’t reveal, and I was like, “Of course!” She thought she should sing that song to the girls, so we booked her for another day, and we did another song, which will be in the finale. Any time you can do anything with Stevie where you can find out the true secret of her shawls is amazing.

So you’re promising to reveal that?
Oh, yeah! The Secret of the Shawls.

.... So, am I the only one thinking "Silver Springs" as the b-side to one of the singles?  And it looks like she'll be singing this song in the final episode of the season at the end of January.

Also... So many have already referred to the title of Stevie's episode as "The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks".  This article is calling the episode "The Magical Charms of Stevie Nicks". I think the former is the correct title.

Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks talk about addiction, sexism – and how they can't wait to play together again

Fleetwood Mac's Stevie and Christine: 'We were like rock'n'roll nuns'

Through all Fleetwood Mac's years of druggy excess and bitter breakups, the friendship between Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks never faltered. They talk about addiction, sexism – and how they can't wait to play together again.

September 2013, and Stevie Nicks is about to perform Landslide at the O2 in London, where Fleetwood Mac are playing three nights. Before she does, though, she has a dedication to make. "This is for my mentor. Big sister. Best friend," she says, and there are precious few people in the venue who don't know she's talking about Christine McVie, her fellow female bandmate and the Mac's keyboard player, as well as one of its singers and songwriters from 1970 until she quit in 1998.

It is not the first time Nicks has talked about McVie. In 2009, she told the audience at Wembley Arena that she thought about her "every day". Earlier this year she admitted to the Observer: "I'd beg, borrow and scrape together $5m and give it to her in cash if she would come back. That's how much I miss her!"

This time, though, was different. When it came to the end of the band's set, McVie stepped onstage with them for the first time in 15 years to run through Don't Stop, her enduring anthem about staying positive in the aftermath of a breakup.

"It was like falling off a bike," McVie says when I meet her in her south London apartment, a beautiful space situated so close to the banks of the Thames that it feels as if we're floating above it. "I climbed back on there again and there they all were, the same old faces!"

Was she nervous?

Real Housewive Meets Real Stevie Nicks

Carlton Gebbia normally seems to keep her cool amidst all the drama on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Not so when she comes face-to-face with a rock and roll legend.

Earlier this week, the new 'Wife had a chance encounter with Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks at a charity affair in L.A, and she snapped a photo of her two girls, Mysteri and Destiny, hanging with the singer backstage (below).

"She is truly a legend and a class act," Carlton tells the Dish of meeting the icon. "She made our night--God, this woman commands!"

Carlton also says that Stevie was a delight to chat with and was flattered when her daughters complimented her talents. "Stevie was so sweet with our girls as they told her how they loved her voice," she says. "She was just so genuine and accessible."

Perhaps most star-struck by the encounter: her husband David. "He had the biggest, cutest smile on his face when we met Stevie," she says. "Talk about teen love!


Queenie on Stevie...

Gabourey Sidibe Talks Queenie and meeting Stevie Nicks

Did you get to meet Stevie Nicks? Is she still there?
I did get to meet Stevie Nicks! She is not still here, but god, she was here for about two or three days. She was awesome. You can tell she really likes the show too. She was like, "Who's going to be the next Supreme!?" She was all in it and gets really, really excited. It was fun  having her.

Plug Pulled on Dennis Wilson Biopic "The Drummer" Vera Farmiga was to play Christine McVie

Beach Boy's Estate Pulls Out of Planned Biopic 'The Drummer'
A long-delayed film about Dennis Wilson's final years may never happen, producers tell THR.
by Patrick Flanary
The Hollywood Reporter

Aaron Eckhart was too exhausted from shooting I, Frankenstein in Australia to portray Dennis Wilson -- the Beach Boys drummer who drowned 30 years ago this month -- in a film about the musician’s final years, and left the production just before shooting was to begin in June 2012.

His departure has indefinitely delayed The Drummer, and now, producers tell The Hollywood Reporter, the biopic's future is murkier. “It was a huge blow for us when Eckhart pulled out,” says Brad Rosenberger, the film’s music supervisor and a publisher of Wilson’s songs, adding that Eckhart had spent six months learning to sing and play the piano and drums. (Vera Farmiga also was cast as Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie.)

The latest setback, however, might be the most insurmountable. The trustee for Wilson’s estate, which represents his children, suggests that the project is now officially off. “The Dennis Wilson Trust can confirm that there is no plan for proceeding with the Drummer project,” Shelley Surpin said in an email, declining to elaborate.

Wilson’s son Carl and daughter Jennifer -- children from separate marriages -- had signed on to co-produce the film in October 2011. The deal represented the first time the family had sanctioned a movie, enabling director Randall Miller to secure the rights to use songs from Pacific Ocean Blue, Wilson’s solo album. But their unease about the screenplay, written by Jody Savin, has contributed to the project’s delay, Wilson’s producer and writing partner Gregg Jakobson reveals. “The kids, they get bad counseling,” he said in a recent interview. “It’s the estate -- they don’t know anything about the entertainment business. They hardly even really ever knew their dad.”

Rosenberger, who spent 20 years at Warner-Chappell, approached Wilson’s family with the film idea in 2008 and said that the children remain interested. “With everything in the right place, they would love to see a movie honoring their father,” he tells THR. “There are no plans to make this Dennis Wilson movie now, but I don’t think it would be accurate to say we don’t want a movie to be made.”
