The New Big Little Lies Trailer Teases Betrayal Within the Monterey Five. "So, you're all talking about me behind my back?" Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) asks. And with that, it looks like the Monterey Five are cracking in Big Little Lies season two. After the premiere episode, HBO released a trailer of what's to come in the remaining six episodes of the second season. The lie, man, it's going to get them all. In the trailer, Mary Louise (Meryl Streep) continues to poke around for the truth about what really happened to her son Perry (Alexander Skarsgrd) and his relationship with Celeste (Nicole Kidman), Bonnie (Zo Kravitz) continues to struggle with the events of that fateful school fundraiser and the rest of the ladies appear to be going through their own struggles. And of course there's a costume party because it wouldn't be Big Little Lies without one. "We're not going to break. We have to stick together. That's the only way we've gotten this far," Madeline tells Celeste, Bonnie, Jane (Shailene Woodley) and Renata (Laura Dern) in the trailer. If only it were that easy... Ahead of the premiere, Witherspoon teased a new side of Madeline. "My character goes through a lot of growth this year," Witherspoon, who is also an executive producer on the series, told E! News at the Big Little Lies premiere in New York City. "She has things in her marriage that she really needs to work on, so I think you'll see a different kind of Madeline this year." Big Little Lies was intended to be a miniseries, but the reaction from viewers -- not mention all the awards the series picked up -- convinced Witherspoon, Kidman, David E. Kelley and Liane Moriarty to come back together for another batch of episodes. Naturally, there was pressure to deliver the goods. "I think we definitely did going into this, but I think we all did a beautiful job at turning that pressure into fuel to just do our jobs better and care more and take the time to make sure the story was what we wanted it to be as women. It's almost a beautiful opportunity to say, 'OK, people are looking to us to tell the truth here. Let's do it,'" Kravitz told us. Big Little Lies airs Sundays, 9 p.m. on HBO. (Eonline)

Meryl Streep just screamed her way to an Emmy in the Big Little Lies season 2 premiere. Cancel all the FYC campaigns for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series at the 2020 Emmys, because the race is over before it even started. To be honest, it was probably over the minute that Meryl Streep signed on for Big Little Lies season 2, but the three-time Oscar winner essentially locked up her fourth career Emmy with one loud, horrifying scream in the HBO hit's return on Sunday. Joining the cast as Celeste's (Nicole Kidman) mother-in-law Mary Louise, Streep was unsurprisingly a dynamite addition from the jump. Mary Louise's not-so-subtle jabs at Madeline ("I find little people to be untrustworthy") alone would have been a great introduction -- and then came the yell. While sitting down for dinner with Celeste and her boys, Mary Louise told a story about recently being with her friends and becoming angry that their "mediocre, second-rate, pudgy, balding, middle management" sons were still alive and hers wasn't. She had been so mad that she just wanted to scream -- and so she did, both then and now, giving her family a terrifying glimpse. Just look at the horror in Nicole Kidman's eyes! On second thought, that scream might have won Emmys for two legendary actresses. For our full recap of the season 2 premiere, go here. Big Little Lies airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.

Kathy Hilton Hilariously Shuts Down Rumors She's Replacing Lisa Vanderpump on 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'. Kathy Hilton hilariously shut down speculation that she's replacing Lisa Vanderpump on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills -- and even Kris Jenner got in on the fun. "Rumors of me joining the Beverly Hills Housewives would interfere with my real job of cutting hair," the I Want to Be a Hilton alum, 60, captioned a video of her poorly cutting a man's hairon Instagram on Sunday, June 9. Jenner, 63, took to the comments section to write: "Who do I call for an appointment??" "Text me," Hilton replied. "No salon I just show [up] wherever and if someone needs a trim or cut I always carry my scissors with me. This really is for people on the go. In and out. Just let me know u know I will be there!" Rumors that Hilton, who is the sister of RHOBH's Kyle Richards and Kim Richards, would be joining the cast of the hit Bravo reality series began to swirl last week after Andy Cohen's pal Bruce Bozzi shared a photo of the socialite with the Watch What Happens Live host on Instagram. "Sign on the dotted line... a true diamond in Beverly Hills.. @kathyhilton! #RHOBH! @bravoandy GoodNight LA," Bozzi captioned the pic. The speculation came after Vanderpump, 58, confirmed to Us Weekly that she had quit the show after nine seasons. "I made the decision to leave. It was a very difficult year for me, personally and professionally," the SUR owner told Us on Thursday, June 7. "I had wonderful things happen this year, opening up and TomTom and the cocktail garden in Vegas. The Housewives, it's just, it emotionally too difficult to deal with." She added of her former pals and costars including Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards, Teddi Mellencamp, Erika Jayne, Denise Richards and Camille Grammer: "I have a great relationship with [Bravo]; I just don't have a great relationship with the women. After 17 episodes of them bashing me, I think I've had enough of all of them." Vanderpump also opted to skip the season 9 reunion taping on Wednesday, June 5, a decision that cost her a pretty penny. "Lisa only gets half of her pay for the season if she doesn't go to the reunion, but she still chose not to go," an insider explained to Us. "The women get half of their pay before shooting starts and the other half after the reunion. So, Lisa lost money." A second source added: "Housewives don't get fully paid for the season until it's over and the reunion has been filmed." Vanderpump later took to Twitter to confirm that she had lost out on some money, but it seemingly didn't bother her. "It wasn't worth it to me," she told a commenter who asked about the financial situation. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Bravo Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET. (UsMagazine)
