‘TV Tidbits': Ali Larter Joins ‘Legends,’ ‘Once Upon a Time”s Snow White Gets a Mom

ALTMeredith Vieira Doesn’t Care About Millionaires: Seems as though host-about-town, Meredith Vieira has decided that she no longer cares about millionaires. Kidding! The longtime host of the syndicated series has decided it’s time to hang-up her hosting duties after 11 years. She is looking forward to working on other ventures, including at NBC News, as well as a possible web series. [WSJ]

Ali Larter to Become Legend: Ali Larter has been cast as the female lead on Legends, the Sean Bean vehicle about a deep-cover CIA operative. Her character, Crystal, is an operative with the D.C.O. who has a history with Martin. Romantic sparks — will they be a-flyin’? [Deadline]

Snow White Gets a Snow Mom: Moms aren’t only for Regina, Oncers — Rena Sofer has joined the crew at Once Upon A Time as Queen Eva, Snow White’s (Ginnifer Goodwin) late mother. She will appear in flashbacks in a March episode, and has a connection to someone we already know (well, besides Snow). [TVLine]

Did Someone Call 911?: BJ (Lucy Punch) from Ben and Kate is about to meet her match — Reno 911‘s Niecy Nash has been cast as Roz, the soon-to-be-ex-wife of Rob Corddry’s bar owner Buddy, who just handed his assets over to BJ. Got that? Needless to say, she won’t be happy. [TVLine]

Television Editor Shaunna Murphy was born and raised in the Philadelphia suburbs of New Jersey. Largely shunned by her peers, she struck up friendships with the likes of Buffy Summers and the X-Men in their stead. After graduating from NYU where she studied political journalism, she moved to Los Angeles when she realized that writing about reality TV is a much nobler pursuit. She now lives in New York, again, with her two cats — Arya Stark and Joffrey Baratheon.
