A Loving Home for Rizzoli and Isles - Pet Adoption

Find the "Take Me Home Pet Rescue" Facebook Page Here

These beautiful girls need a home...

Comments from Take Me Home's Page:

Check out Rizzoli! She is a very sweet lab mix who loves to play in the water and yes, any puddle will do! She is great with kids and other pets including dog friendly cats. She and her sister Isles are ready for a home of their own. Check them out this weekend at our Meet & Greet this Saturday from 9AM-Noon. Email us now for an application at info@takemehomepetrescue.com. These two girls will not last long so don't miss an opportunity to adopt one or both of the sisters!

Comments from Take Me Home's Page:

My name is Isles... I am Rizzoli's sister. Yes, she is cute but I am cuter! Dont you think? I am a LOVE BUG. Yea, Rizzoli is too. I would rather chase butterflies than play in the mud, so if you are looking for neat and clean then that would be me and not my sis... We do love eachother and will play for hours so hey, if you adopt us both, we can easily keep eachother entertained. But either way, you cant go wrong. Check us out at the Meet & Greet this weekend! See you there!

Even if Rizzoli & Isles aren't the girls for you, there are plenty of other animals in need of good, loving homes and families. Please consider them when you consider it time to adopt a furry little one into your family.

More Sasha Talk about Season 3

PCM-TV.com did an interview with Sasha recently:

Q: After the finale there were some worries about how the dynamic of Jane and Maura’s relationship would play out after the shooting, did you have any ideas as to how you thought Maura would react? 
“Initially, the anger seemed really right. I wasn’t really sure though, I felt like after the anger she wanted to apologize to Jane but then there was a miscommunication between them and she became angrier. I think that anger leads into a better understanding of what happened at the shooting. Once they have that understanding they can make their way back to being friends. In the second episode they’re not really talking yet, but there is that humorous tension between them where they have to work together. Overall Maura reacts the way I would expect her to.”

Review of 3x01

TheExaminer.com talks about 3x01:

When Rizzoli & Isles returns with its third season premiere, “What Doesn’t Kill You,” we are mere seconds after that undercover sting operation went horribly awry. Jane is forced to hand over her gun as evidence, while Maura can barely look at her former best friend, resigned to the fact that her mobster biological father was there to protect her, not threaten the police force that showed up. The case explodes when I.A. gets involved and Maura chooses to stay in the hospital, alternating between her father and mother’s bedsides, though, so the two spend the majority of the episode apart. Still, the tension that hangs over their head is thicker than ever.

Angie Talks Season Three

DigitalJournal.com has an article on the press conference Angie did a few days ago where she discusses the show, the show's influence on young girls, and the Gracie Awards.

Harmon said it’s really great to watch these two women work around their differences and the horrible situation that's happened, and come back together in Season 3. Also, the other characters recognize the love these two characters have for each other and will help Jane and Maura in their own ways to get back together.

What Angie Knows Now

Over at Style, they asked Angie, "What do you know now that you didn't in your 20s or 30s?" Here's a bit of what she said:

"I also know that I don't care if I p—- people off along the way. I charge into things head on. If I'm afraid, I charge even harder."

Angie's Wish for All Men

The Huffington Post has printed Angie Harmon's Wish for All Men, which is the kick off of the campaign she is the face for regarding men's health and the fight against prostrate cancer.

Here is the honest truth: I'm incredibly lucky that none of the leading men in my life have been affected by prostate cancer. I know that at the mention of prostate cancer, I may have lost half of the men who started reading this, but you can't ignore the statistics: one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime.

Sasha Interview

DigitalJournal.com has a great article and interview with Sasha.

"Season Two ends with a real cliffhanger that is resolved in Season Three," reveals Alexander, who is of Serbian/Italian descent. "I really loved doing Season Two, and I think fans will love seeing it again. Although each season stands on it's own, Season Two is a perfect introduction to Season Three. If gives you a chance to see how Maura and Jane have evolved as people and friends."

Angie SMASH!

An interview from EntertainmentWeekly.com has Angie telling us her love of the Avengers and her desire to be  the next big action super hero star:

  And she’d be fine wearing She-Hulk’s skimpy costume? ”I would rock that like there is no tomorrow. I would kill that outfit. I’d put these 36Cs on display. Boom!” she said. “And what about her libido? That’s my favorite part. She-Hulk, bed! She-Hulk, screw! Can you imagine? Then she just picks him up and throws him around the room like the Hulk did with the bad guy. [Makes smashing noises.]

Sasha Talks R&I

TVChoice.com did an interview with Sasha a few weeks ago about the series. As those across the pond know, Rizzol & Isles is now showing on Alibi, and this interview covers a range of information from her thoughts on the ending of Season 1 and Season 2 to what it's like while filming to her days studying acting abroad. You'll find great things like:

So they like to keep you in suspense as well?
Yeah. But I will tell you that from Maura’s perspective, I feel like the situation she’s in at the end of season two really changes her. I think it deepens the relationship with Jane. I think that there is definitely going to be love interest involved this year. The crimes are continuing to be very strong and it’s overall really growing in direction. I’m feeling that there is a lot of synergy between all the characters, there’s a lot happening personally and in work.

Things to Amuse: TV Guide - Greatest Lesbian Movies

Over at TVGuide.com, you'll find a list from straightless (straightless.tumblr.com/, straight_less@twitter) listing a handpicked suggestion of entertainment great for lesbians, both straightforward and subtexty. It's a good list, but what we found really great was their entry on Rizzoli & Isles:

“ described as the most gay TV Show, which is not gay...yet! I know how much confusing that sounds but really, though there are no indication of the alleged gay relationship between main characters you can actually hear the gay vibe buzzing like crazy. Eye-sex in every single episode. But the gayness is still denied by authors. I think they're all in denial. I'd say it's the most closeted tv show ;)
This tv show belongs to lesbian community, you can see it by the number of fan videos and fanfictions created from the story of these two. It's crazy. Right now I have no time reading books because i'm reading so many fanfictions. And i've never read those before in my life.
That's why it must have it's place on this list. ” - straightless

You can check out the rest of their list here.

AUSXIP - New Promos

In case you've missed it, our friends over at AUSXIP have updated their multimedia page for R&I with six new promos featuring new scenes from the upcoming season. We must admit, hearing Maura call Jane "Detective Rizzoli" and Jane call Maura "Doctor Isles" hurt us.

Here's hoping that Season 3 brings us more than heart ache...
