Meg marries Carrie's Best Awful
If Carrie Fisher's
life were dull, what
would she write
like surviving her

announced plans to
turn Fisher's latest
novel, "The Best
Awful," into a
story of Suzanne
Vale — Fisher's
alter ego> who first appeared in "Postcards from
the Edge" — "Best Awful" sees our heroine
rebounding from divorce with the help of pre-
scription drugs, a crazy road trip to Mexico with
her tattoo artist and yet another stint in rehab.
Fisher will adapt the script herself, but no
word yet as to when we'll see Ryan fall apart

Lifetime's "Gay, Straight or Taken?" — pre-
miering Jan. 8 — introduces a female contestant
to three men, and it's her job to figure out who's
single, who's taken, and who plays for the other
team. If she guesses correctly, she and her guy
win an exotic trip; if she doesn't, the guy and
his significant other will travel instead.
