New York Post reports Alyssa Milano's movie career was almost cut short
last year when financing for "Kiss the Bride" fell through at the last
minute. Producer Jordan Gertner revealed, "We had all come to New York
to start pre-production and had a letter of commitment for funds from the
bank. It turns out the letter was a forgery, and we had been set up by
a guy in Los Angeles, so we had to shut down production and come back to
the West Coast." Eventually, new funding was found fortunately. The flick
was nominated for best film at last summer's Hamptons Film Festival.

Timberlake, she gave the *NSYNC star a test to see if he was worthy. "She
asked Justin to name five Beatles albums and to name two songs off each
of them," said an insider. Timberlake passed. Don't expect Milano to confirm
this story though, as a source revealed that during her recent interviews
for her TV show 'Charmed', radio DJ's were warned in advance that there
could be "no questions about Justin, or if they asked a Justin question,
she'd hang up," according to a source.

Milano has commented to Entertainment Weekly about the photographers to
shot pictures of her and Justin Timberlake leaving the *NSYNC star's home.
"He's a lot more used to it than I am," Milano said. "If celebrities walk
down a red carpet, paparazzi should be allowed to take pictures. If we're
walking out of our homes, I am totally against it." Milano, who has sued
a webmaster in the past for posting nude pictures of her, says she's considering
a lawsuit in this latest case of invaded privacy.

Caramanica, BET.com Deputy Music Editor wrote an open letter to *NSYNC
star Justin Timberlake. In it, Caramanica says he's not most impressed
with him for his new music, nor his relationship with Britney Spears, Jenna
Dewan, or Janet Jackson, but instead the Alyssa Milano score. "Alyssa Milano?
This, my friend, is the coup de grace," he said. "For a whole generation
of youngsters reared on the boob tube, the tomboyish Sam(antha) from 'Who's
The Boss?' was the crush to have - great smile, fun attitude, overalls.
In other words, completely non-threatening, even though she was a girl.
She's grown up into a fine specimen; if only one could say the same of
her career. Nevertheless, dating her must be like reaching through the
television and grabbing hold of a piece of your childhood lost. Beautiful."
