Chatting with Billy V: October 8, 2010

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Reality producer, radio personality and "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest is in early talks with talent agency CAA and entertainment company AEG about jointly launching a new cable network. The business venture is in very preliminary stages, but the network's concept is described as music, pop culture and lifestyle oriented. Seacrest is likely to have some kind of on-air presence in the venture. 

Ever write to a celebrity when you were in Elementary School?  Well 9-year-old Beatrice Delap of Greenwich, Britain did; and Johnny Depp showed up at her elementary school in character as Jack Sparrow after she wrote him a letter asking for help staging a "mutiny" against the teachers. Johnny was filming the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie nearby. The school was told of Depp's plans just 10 minutes before he arrived. When he met Beatrice he told her, "Maybe we shouldn't mutiny today 'cos there are police outside monitoring me."
