TV Tidbits: Dave Navarro Joins ‘Sons of Anarchy’ While Rachel Zoe Gets a New Project


ALTWhat a Monday! It’s hard to get too excited for any of these tidbits, since we’re still jumping up and down and squealing over the fact that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host this year’s Golden Globe Awards. Still, we’re counting down the days until the Girls of, well, Girls return, and plenty of other pilot and casting news added to our rare Monday happiness:

Rachel Zoe Goes Peacock: In case a reality version of Rachel Zoe‘s life wasn’t enough, NBC has bought a single-camera comedy project to bring the sort-of-fictional version to life. Because who better to play Rachel Zoe than… not Rachel Zoe? Zoe and her husband Rodger Berman will produce the project, which will be written by Aseem Batra (Animal Practice) and directed by Emmy winner Todd Holland. We die. [Deadline]

Dave Navarro to Cross SAMCRO: The boys of SAMCRO have yet another gang banger to watch out for: Jane’s Addiction rocker Dave Navarro will join Sons of Anarchy for this season’s finale two episodes, as a gang member tied to Jimmy Smits‘ character, Nero. Also, Jane’s Addiction will perform a cover of “Sympathy for the Devil” for the show’s finale. [Hollywood Reporter]

The Shahs, Our Holiday Miracle: The Shahs of Sunset are back! The wealthy Beverly Hills Persians will return to Bravo on Dec. 2, to offer their thoughts on the national debt crisis and the rapid decline of the middle class in American Society. Just kidding! One of them will have a “gaylife crisis”, and another will struggle to maintain a swimwear line and a serious relationship. Thanks for the drama, Ryan Seacrest! [Hollywood Reporter]

Bachelor Discrimination Suit Dismissed: The racially charged class action lawsuit against The Bachelor and The Bachelorette was dismissed today. Judge Aleta Trauger granted the motion to dismiss the racial discrimination suit — which was filed by football players Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson — requested by defendants ABC, Warner Horizon Television, Next Entertainment, NZK Productions and the show’s exec producer Michael Fleiss. Claybrooks and Johnson unsuccessfully auditioned for the show, and protested the fact that the shows never have a winner who is a person of color. [Deadline]

Girls and Enlightened Get Premiere Dates: They’re baaaack! Some of television’s sauciest ladies will return to HBO on Jan. 13, both for their 10-episode sophomore seasons. Lena Dunham‘s Girls will take the Sunday night at 9 p.m. ET timeslot, with the Laura Dern-starring Enlightened moving to 9:30 — a step up from last year’s Monday night slot, if you ask us. [TVLine]
