A morning mix of entertainment headlines...

Mayim Bialik — one-time star of “Blossom” and current portrayer of Amy on “The Big Bang Theory” — is recuperating after a car accident that happened Wednesday. People reports that a car filled with tourists from Chile crashed into Bialik’s vehicle on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. She was transported to the hospital with a serious injury to her left thumb but appears to be recovering well. Her husband tweeted on her behalf to tell her Twitter followers that she won’t have to lose that thumb. (People)

Universal Pictures says Kristen Stewart has not been dropped from the sequel to ”Snow White and the Huntsman,” according to The Wrap. “We’re currently exploring all options to continue the franchise. . . . Any reports that Kristen Stewart has been dropped are false,” Universal co-chair Donna Langely told the Web site. That contradicts a story by The Hollywood Reporter and noted in yesterday’s morning mix, which said Stewart had been dropped from a planned sequel and that the next movie would be focused on Huntsman Chris Hemsworth. Universal now says there still may be a Huntsman spinoff, but that doesn’t mean Stewart is no longer the fairest of them all. Man, this reminds me of that time when it seemed like Stewart had been cast in “Lie Down in Darkness,” and then it turned out she had not been yet. (The Wrap)

The lawsuit was filed by Entertainment Enterprises, the company that owns the trademark for Greenhouse, which — stay with me now — shares space, owners and a liquor license with the W.i.P. club, according to the New York Post.
