Everyone is hoping the musical will reopen, due to its rave reviews and limited amount of completed performances. More info when it becomes available.

According to a spanish new program, Yolanda Saldívar, Selena's convicted killer, is coming out with her own tell all book. No news on exactly when it is going to be released for all the public to read, but it will probably be before the year is over. My prediction is sales are going to be high, only because people want to hear what kind of bull she's saying now, but I think the book in general won't be on the New York Times best sellers list if ya know what I mean. I just think the curious are gonna buy it to see what she has to say.
