In past interviews, Lively has spoken about the project saying “The main element of it is that it’s about story telling and it’s about living a very one-of-a-kind, curated life, and how to achieve that. There’s nothing like it out there – it’s without a genre.” XOXO. (The Hollywood Reporter)

  • American Apparel is being asked to pay back its $10 million loan after ousting founder Dov Charney.  Lion Capital, a supporter of Charney, is looking to enforce a provision in it’s lending agreement with the brand that allows the investment firm to ask for immediate repayment if Charney is no longer the CEO of AA. Lion actually would prefer to see Charney heading the company and if that change doesn’t happen, wants immediate repayment of it’s loans which American Apparel says it can afford but could possibly trigger a seperate default on $30 million to Capital One. Talk about between a rock and a hard place. (LA Times)
