Could Halle Berry be doing a TV series? TV industry people are buzzing this afternoon about a hot drama spec that has Halle Berry attached to star. Word is the spec, titled Higher Learning, was sent out today to pay cable networks, with HBO and Showtime among those targeted. I hear that the project, from DreamWorks TV, is eying a quick turnaround, and a decision could come as early as tomorrow. The script, which I hear would have the Oscar winner starring as a college professor, was written by 30-year industry veteran Lee Rose. A queen of TV movies in their heyday during the 1990s, Rose segued to episodic directing over the past 10 years. She also co-ran with Martha Kauffman the WB series Related.
It has been reported via multiple outlets that due to personal reasons involving her daughter and a possible custody situation Halle had to drop out of New Year’s Eve.
Halle Berry has dropped out of a film to prepare for a custody fight for her daughter.
The Oscar-winning actress (for 2001’s Monster’s Ball) was scheduled to film New Year’s Eve this week in New York, but pulled out “due to pending custody litigation involving her daughter,” her rep said in a statement. Katherine Heigl will replace her, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Berry and model Gabriel Aubry, who split in April after four years of dating, have a nearly 3-year-old daughter, Nahla. In December, Aubry filed papers seeking joint custody and to be formally recognized as Nahla’s father.
“Halle has serious concerns for her daughter’s well-being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time and is prepared to take all necessary steps to protect her,” her rep said. “She has attempted to resolve these custody issues amicably with her daughter’s father, Gabriel Aubry, directly, but given his lack of cooperation, Halle has no choice but to seek swift judicial intervention.”
A date for the custody hearing was not revealed.
“Halle has always made the needs and safety of her daughter her first priority and, both while Halle and Gabriel were a couple and since their break-up, Halle has only acted in her daughter’s best interest,” her rep added. [Source]
Various media outlets are reporting that Halle will be presenting at this year’s award ceremony along with Hollywood’s elite.
Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges, Sandra Bullock, Marisa Tomei and Oprah Winfrey will be presenters at the 83rd annual Academy Awards in February, producers Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer announced Monday.
The first presenters announced for the ceremony have plenty of Oscar history between them. Bridges and Bullock won Best Actor and Best Actress awards last year. Berry won Best Actress in 2001 for “Monster’s Ball.” Tomei won the award for Best Supporting Actress for “My Cousin Vinny” in 1992, while Winfrey was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for “The Color Purple” in 1985, and was an executive producer on 2009 Best Picture nominee “Precious.”

It seems like Congratulations are in order for Halle Berry & Gabriel Aubry, the pair are said to be expecting baby No. 2!
Halle Berry suffered through the disappointment of more than 30 negative pregnancy tests before finally learning she was expecting her first child, Nahla, in 2007. Luckily, she’s had more success with her follow-up attempts to have a baby: Life & Style can exclusively reveal that the actress, who turned 43 on Aug. 14, is three months pregnant with her second child.
“Halle is overjoyed,” says an insider close to Halle and the baby’s father, model Gabriel Aubry. “The first time, she struggled so much to get pregnant and eventually conceived through in vitro fertilization. This time, the baby was conceived through artificial insemination.”
“She’s just ecstatic to be pregnant again,” the insider tells Life & Style. “She wasn’t sure if she’d have another baby, so she’s very happy!” A rep for Halle didn’t respond to a request for comment.
