    Jessica and Zayra: Not Quite Good Enough

    Till we went back and re-read Zac Crain's 1999 story here, we forgot that Jessica Simpson was signed to a record deal in 1997. So, we almost done here? It's been a while since we've had news about the big-screen version of Dallas, which is supposed to start shooting around here and in Louisiana some ... More >>

    Look at Little Sister

    Danny Moloshok / Blue Pixel for MBP 2006 Two Texans down--those would be, from left, former Dallasite Patrice Pike and current local Zayra Alvarez--and one to go. Tuesday night on Rock Star: Supernova, Patrice Pike jumped at the chance to perform an original song for the members of Supernova— ... More >>

    She's Gone

    Danny Moloshok/Blue Pixel for MBP 2006 Dallas' Zayra Alvarez is outta contention to join Supernova. We'd offer her our sympathies, if only we could figure out how that's supposed to be a bad thing. Those of you watching Rock Star: Supernova last night know that Zayra Watch 2006 has come to an end. ... More >>

    Thank you, Dave Navarro, Thank You

    Danny Moloshok/Blue Pixel for MBP 2006 If we wanted our rock stars to be boring, Patrice, we'd listen to Radiohead. Last night's Rock Star: Supernova was a lesson in feisty dialogue with co-host Dave Navarro. The guy was definitely showing some post-break-up angst when he exchanged his usual stic ... More >>

    Rock Star Goes Opry

    Danny Moloshok / Blue Pixel for MBP 2006 The woman in me says this is one bad dress Zayra Alvarez is wearing. So, last week on no one's favorite show, Rock Star: Supernova, Zayra Alvarez landed in the bottom three after an atrocious rendition of The Kinks' "You Really Got Me"--and rightfully so, ba ...

    Rock Star 101: Know Thy Cr�e, GNR and Metallica

    Zayra, you have pretty much voted yerself off this island. Every time Rock Star: Supernova host Brook Burke says "the world's best unsigned rockers," I throw up in my mouth just a little bit. The last two weeks have been a horrible showing for what the world has to offer Tommy Lee, Gilby Clarke and ... More >>

    Dallas Rocks

    Former Dallasite Patrice Pike did well on Rock Star last night. So we hear. Heh. Stop weeping already. I know you wish you hadn't missed last night's inaugural episode of Rock Star: Supernova, but it's cool; I got your back. The girls offered the heaviest competition; most of the guys were way too w ... More >>

    Rock Star? OK, Whatever.

    Zayra Alvarez played the Dallas Observer Music Awards in 2005. That's much cooler than being on a TV show trying out for Tommy Lee's band. Seriously. Rock Star: Supernova debuts on CBS July 5 and features some dozen hopefuls vying for a spot in an "all-star" band with Tommy Lee and ex-of-Metallica J ... More >>
