— ATLwood friend Tamara Tattles has the behind-the-scenes scoop this week on Real Atlanta Housewife Nene Leakes' time filming "Glee." Yes, I never thought I would put those two things together, either.

— Speaking of singing, dancing and Atlanta, the Georgia-filmed movie Joyful Noise opens today.

— According to Jennifer Brett over at @AJCBuzz, "So You Think You Can Dance" host Cat Deeley was spotted at Spice Market on Sunday chowing down on samosas with Ketel One and soda. The show filmed at the Swan House on Thursday.

— Tales of the Unexpected: Actor-comedian Tom Green is set to appear in Carrollton. Remember when he was a huge name? I'm not left feeling nostalgic.

— Congrats to part-time ATL resident Nina Dobrev of the"Vampire Diaries" for winning Favorite TV Drama Actress at the Peoples Choice Awards. I guess that level of fame is why I've seen you inside Whole Foods with your sunglasses on? #Gurl...

— The Travel + Escape channel (what a name!) is looking for Savannah residents for a new reality series "Door to Door." Hmm, can they make me a Savannah resident?

Links of Filming Past:

— Mark your calendars, Billy Bob Thornton's Atlanta-filmed Jayne Mansfield's Car is heading to the Berlin Film Festival.

Filming Present:

— "The Vampire Diaries" is filming around Clark St and Hays St in Covington.

— "Coma" is filming at the High Museum.

Filming Future:

— FYI: The Tyler Perry’s feature film “Madea’s Witness Protection” is casting extras; filming will take place in Atlanta from January 2012 — March 2012 (sorry I don't have specific contact info!)

— VH1's "Single Ladies" will be filming in Atlanta on January 20th.

That's it for this week! Have any tips? Sightings? Encounters? Filming news? Drop me a line: ATLwood@cln.com or send me a tweet @FlossyAlli on Twitter (don't forget to use the hashtag #ATLwood)!
