    Trish Stratus is one of the newest WWE Hall of Famers, but this fall, the first-ever Diva of the Decade will add yet another honor to her list of accolades: motherhood.

    “I just wanted to let you all know that in September, I’ll be delivering a little Stratusfaction,” an ecstatic Trish announced to the WWE Universe, which responded with overwhelming approval for the mother-to-be.

    “It was awesome,” Trish told WWE.com moments after her bombshell announcement. “As a public personality, you wonder what’s the right time to tell everybody. Of course, when I got the news I would be inducted this year, I definitely found out I was pregnant, and so I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, I’ll be four months, I should tell them!’ ”

    It was a conversation with a longtime friend who made up Trish’s mind to break the news on her big night.

    “Me and Stephanie actually talked about it and thought it would be a great chance to announce it,” Trish said. “It’s my family out there. They’ve been part of my life for so long, the WWE Universe, and to actually share the news with them was wonderful. And the reaction was nice. They like the Stratus baby!”

    So, is an in-ring future in the cards for said Stratus baby?

    “Whatever he or she would like to do, I will support just as I was supported by my family,” Trish said of a possible heir to her Hall of Fame legacy.

    Congratulations, Trish and husband Ron!


    Stephanie McMahon takes the stage to induct Trish Stratus, and pays homage to all the interaction Trish had with her family. Steph says they are some of her favorite moments on TV. Stephanie puts over Trish and her career and says Trish always made people feel how she wanted them to feel. She put over Trish’s 2004 Raw main event with “another great Diva”, Lita. Stephanie says Trish is the first Diva to compete in five WrestleMania matches and according to Trish, she may not be done.

    Trish comes out and says Stephanie is a great friend, mother and businesswoman. Trish says the last time she was at MSG, she was making her final bow on Raw and now she’s back with bling. Trish does a little comedy bit, rolling out a huge long list of people to thank. The crowd is really loving her as she thanks the fans first. Trish makes fun of the fact she was so bad when she started in WWE and says the crowd literally watched her grow up. She smiles cheekily and says she hopes we were all Stratusfied. Trish thanks former WWE Canada president and her trainer Ron Hutchinson. Trish mentions that Edge, Christian, the “beautiful” Beth Phoenix and the “great” Gail Kim trained at Sully’s Gym. She then thanks Jim Ross. Trish pulls out the pen gave her to sign her first WWE contract out of her cleavage and tells the camera to get a close-up. She jokes that she’ll cover up the F in WWF so the “pandas don’t get pissed off”. The crowd goes nuts. She then thanks Fit Finlay for everything he did for the Divas and making it the golden era. Trish says Molly Holly, Ivory, Jazz, Victoria, Mickie James, Jacqueline and her bestie Lita made the golden era. She tells Lita how much she means to her and says I love you. Lita looks like she is tearing up. She thanks the other girls for building something special and says working with the McMahons pushed her to be better because it was so much pressure. Trish says she brought 25 Greeks from Toronto with her and thanks her family for always supporting her. She thanks her mom and says one of the reasons she retired is because her mom was diagnosed with cancer and she needed to be there. Her mom is now cancer-free. Trish thanks her husband Ron for always being there and the crowd boos him, but she threatens the crowd for booing her man! Trish says she’s so in love with her husband and she’s so glad to share her WWE career with her high school sweetheart. Trish announces she’s pregnant saying she’s going to be delivering some Stratusfaction in September. Crowd changes towards her husband and now cheering him.



    OMG I AM SO EXCITED FOR TRISH! I CAN'T WAIT FOR HER TO ENTER MOTHERHOOD! I WAS LEGIT TEARING UP READING HER SPEECH! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT ON TV! THANK YOU TRISH FOR ALL THE MEMORIES! <3

    BOW!!!!!!

    Carey Mulligan has revealed that nude scenes have helped her overcome her body issues.

    The Great Gatsby actress said that she found getting naked for scenes with Michael Fassbender in Shame"liberating", reports The Sun.



    "In my own life I'm very prudish about my body, or at least I have been in the past," she said.

    "I'm always covering myself up rather than wearing skimpy outfits. I don't look good in very short skirts - at least I don't think so.

    "I'm often terrified about different aspects of characters I'm playing."

    Mulligan starred alongside Fassbender in the Steve McQueen directed film in 2011 and despite being nervous about the scenes, she insisted that it was important for the character that she do them.

    "With respect to nudity, it was vital to the character in Shame, who wasn't supposed to be a very attractive character and needed to be emotionally naked and lost in different ways," she said.

    "This is who she is - a character who can stand fully naked in front of her brother and not feel anything.




    "But doing the nudity for Shame was actually very liberating for me and it helped me deal with my own issues with my body."

    The 27-year-old is starring opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in the upcoming Baz Luhrmann adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel The Great Gatsby. Tobey Maguire and Isla Fisher also star in the film.

    Mulligan described the Twenties dresses that she wears in the movie as "stunning".

    "They're quite stunning but I also made sure I was doing Pilates and going to the gym regularly, which most of us in the cast were doing so we could look our best," she said.

    The actress added that it was a "dream come true" to work with DiCaprio, saying that he is "one of the greatest actors in the business".

    The Great Gatsby will be released in cinemas in the US on May 10 and in the UK on May 16.

    Just watched Shame yesterday and am writing a paper on it for my film class. I loved Carey in it, she reminded me a lot of some of the crazy women I've known in my life. I was also not expecting her to have a nude scene in this movie but I liked that it wasn't done in a sexual context.

    A photograph of what appeared to be her smoking a suspicious hand-rolled cigarette was uploaded on Instagram back in February.

    And on Saturday, the star sparked concerns once again when she was pictured enjoying what appeared to be the same on her hotel balcony.

    The 20-year-old singer was seen inhaling and puffing smoke into the air as she sat outside at her accommodation in Miami, Florida with the brown paper coated item.

    What is she smoking? Miley Cyrus took a drag of a suspicious looking hand-rolled cigarette on her hotel balcony in Miami, Florida



    Miley chatted to friends as they relaxed on a veranda, looking as though she had just woken up as she donned only a black T-shirt with gold writing across.

    Must be those endorphins! Liam Hemsworth beams following gym workout... a day after Miley Cyrus puts engagement ring back on



    The star, who had tied her short pixie blonde hair up on top of her head, squinted her eyes as she took a deep drag of the cigarette with her left hand, which was missing the engagement ring given to her by fiancé Liam Hemsworth.
    Afterwards she laughed to herself as she peered down at the action below her.

    LOS ANGELES — The role of female talk show hosts in late-night TV broadcast network history, all 50-plus years of it, can be summed up in two words: Joan Rivers. It takes just another two – Arsenio Hall – to do the same for minorities.

    There's no indication that's going to change in the latest round of musical chairs involving "Tonight" and "Late Night." All the NBC, ABC and CBS showcase jobs at 11:30 p.m. Eastern and later appear likely to remain securely in white men's hands.

    Jay Leno is handing off to Jimmy Fallon, with speculation tagging Seth Meyers as his likely successor. Meanwhile, David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Craig Ferguson and Carson Daly are sitting pretty, without the faintest drumbeat of a pair of advancing high heels to signal a threat.

    There have been alternatives bandied about – Chelsea Handler, black comedian-writer Aisha Tyler – but no hints they or others are getting traction.

    "In real life it seems to me that women have definitely shown themselves to be able to carry on a conversation," said Merrill Markoe, the Emmy Award-winning writer who helped David Letterman create "Late Night" at NBC. "Women have exhibited an interest in talking for centuries. I'm not sure how it is that no one has seemed to notice."

    NBC did not respond to requests for comment on the issue. But if belles du jour Tina Fey and Amy Poehler can excel at TV sitcoms and movies and teach Ricky Gervais a thing or two (or three) about hosting the Golden Globes, could they be queens of the night with their own talk shows? Or maybe a Hispanic or Asian-American man could have a turn. We may miss out on a "Jimmy Kimmel Live" clip of a heavyset woman lifting her T-shirt, and the host then warning us, "I need to take a break. I'm going to throw up," but we might get other thrills.

    Women and minorities have conquered other traditionally white male-dominated arenas, on and off TV – think anchorwoman Diane Sawyer, President Barack Obama – but in late-night even daring cable is content with the homogenized likes of Conan O'Brien, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, with such occasional dashes as E!'s Handler, BET's Mo'Nique and TBS' now-gone George Lopez thrown in.

    Rivers, who became host of Fox's "The Late Show" in 1986 after filling in as the sole regular guest host on Johnny Carson's "Tonight," calls the lack of female hosts "beyond" frustrating.

    Blame the broadcast industry's resistance toward change and the risk of failure, she said: "Everybody is running so scared, and has always run scared."

    And executives can find reasons, or excuses, for keeping the status quo.

    "They had surveys at NBC, and the surveys were that women would rather watch a man at night, which is what they're always throwing up in your face," Rivers said.

    That's an argument that's still made, privately, in the industry: Women want to hear their pre-bedtime monologue jokes from a man, while Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and Katie Couric are welcome in daytime.

    It's true that women make up a majority of the audience for every network late-night show. ABC's Kimmel, for instance, is averaging 1.4 million female viewers and 770,000 male viewers this season, while Leno is watched by 1.9 million women and 1.5 million men, according to Nielsen Co. ratings.

    But "Chelsea Lately" casts doubt on the notion of women snubbing women. Of Handler's 650,000 viewers, about 65 percent are female – a higher percentage of women than any male network host except Kimmel, who's about even with that number.


    While networks also have to worry about drawing male viewers, especially the advertiser-coveted younger ones, the hard truth is that battle is being lost to edgier cable hosts – Stewart, Colbert and O'Brien all have majority-male audiences – and to the video games and online distractions that consume their attention.

    The networks have other reasons to reconsider their white-guys-only strategy, according to an analysis of Nielsen data: They are losing out on minority viewers, Hispanics in particular.

    Of the total 3.44 million viewers averaged by "Tonight" for the season through March 24, there were 188,000 Hispanics. That's about 5 percent of the total audience, compared to the nearly 17 percent Latino slice of the U.S. population.

    The other late-night shows show similar degrees of disconnect with Hispanics, although some can boast healthy black viewership.

    "Guess what? America's becoming more diverse," said Darnell Montez Hunt, a University of California, Los Angeles, professor who studies race and media. Late-night shows "could grow a larger and diverse audience by making different choices behind the camera and in front of the camera."

    That means, in part, casting a wider net for young comedians and giving them a chance to develop into big league material, as Fallon was able to do when he moved from "Saturday Night Live" to "Late Night."

    There are plenty of comers to choose from, said Laugh Factory owner Jamie Masada, who sees a parade of talented women and minorities on stage as his comedy clubs in the Los Angeles area and Chicago.

    "I could give your three or four names who could be the best host," he said. "Tony Rock, the brother of Chris Rock, would be a fantastic guy to do a talk show."

    TBS turned to an established comic in 2010 when it launched "The George Lopez Show." But when Lopez was bumped back an hour to midnight to make way for O'Brien's post-"Tonight" effort, ratings fell and Lopez got a pink slip. He had averaged 910,000 viewers at 11 p.m. Eastern; so far this season, O'Brien is averaging just under 600,000 – and just earned a renewal through 2015.

    Lopez is canceled, Wanda Sykes loses her low-rated Saturday night Fox show, and it gives networks an out, said UCLA's Hunt: "They'll point to the example of the cautionary tale as to why diversity is not a good thing for the bottom line."

    But Garth Ancier saw firsthand the value of going against the grain in his tenure as Fox's first entertainment programming chief.

    While Rivers' Fox stint was relatively brief – the network cited low viewership, she blames a business clash – it helped give a boost to Hall, one of the guest hosts who succeeded her, and proved there was an audience appetite for something new.

    "Arsenio was getting ratings almost immediately because there was no one like him on late night," recalled Ancier. Hall made such a splash that, although Fox failed to snap him up, he struck a syndication deal and was on the air from 1989-94.

    Ancier, who later moved over to the WB that launched in 1995 (and which later merged with UPN to form the CW), tried to go the non-traditional route again by proposing a Rosie O'Donnell talk show.

    "We couldn't get enough enthusiasm from affiliates," he said.

    Network affiliate stations are indeed part of late-night's resistance to change, said Christine Becker, an associate professor at Notre Dame University who writes the News For TV Majors blog.

    Since lucrative local newscasts flow into talk shows, there's an "inherent fear" at networks that stations or sponsors will be alienated by unfamiliar fare, Becker said. Keeping viewers from flipping also conveniently delivers them back to the same channel the next morning.

    But at least some local station executives say they are ready to switch it up.

    "To me, it's all about popularity, if it's a man or a woman or whatever," said John O'Brien, vice president and general manager of NBC affiliate WNDU in South Bend, Ind. "If it's an individual that's entertaining in a late-night time slot and viewers like them, that's what we want."

    "I'd like to see a female in there. Count me in," said Lisa Howfield, vice president and general manager of the network affiliate KVBC in Las Vegas.

    It will happen, said Rivers, 79, who revisits her tumultuous talk-show career on this weekend's episode of her WE TV series, "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?"

    "The right women in front of the camera will be just fine. It was fine when I did it, and it will be fine again," she said.

    As for the minority presence in late-night, that's getting a boost this September with Hall's return. Is NBC, CBS, ABC or Fox to be the broadcast network home to "The Arsenio Hall Show"? None of the above. It's syndicated.

    HBO Connect Live Q&A with Gwendoline Christie


    Game of Thrones
    Thank you Gwendoline for joining us today! Do you have any first thoughts to your fans?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    I want to thank you for being interested. I’m really flattered and overwhelmed. I’m not so surprised that they’re interested in her.

    raebae9
    What about your personality makes you perfect for the role of Brienne of Tarth? #GameOfThrones #FSU #HBOCollege

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    I've had similar experiences to that character. I feel I understand her psyche and understand her choices. Obviously she's a fictional character and I, apparently a real person, but we've definitely shared similar experiences. I understand her feelings of being marginalized due to the way that she looks.

    raebae9
    If you could live anywhere in Westeros where would you live and why? #FSU #HBOCollege

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    I think King's Landing looks nice, doesn't it? I quite fancy the Lannister home. Might have to get some central heating in there.

    JonnyPWilson
    Gwendoline, if you had to play any other character in Game of Thrones, who would you be and why?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    There's loads after. I'd really love to play Cersei because I think she comes with a rather nice set of cheekbones and I rather fancy those.

    radiowammo
    High heels or medieval boots?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    High heels. Always. Medieval boots are for weekends.

    nmaz23
    Don't you think it is a bit dangerous leaving one person in charge of the king slayer? Or do you feel like Brienne is tough enough.

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    Brienne is more than equipped to deal with that sniveling rat.

    LiamWSwann
    Do you have any other projects in the works, perhaps film work?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    I'm hoping so. There's nothing that's confirmed but it's all looking very exciting. Really looking forward to more Game of Thrones.

    MuffinTommy
    What do you find the most difficult in your portrayal of Brienne?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    It's really hard to be as good as she is at everything. Particularly in terms of her strength and skill. That's the hardest thing. I quite like looking mucky, it's quite nice not having to care about how you look. It's nice that the worse you look the better portrayal it is the character. It's quite liberating.

    RoverKelevra
    What do you think are Brienne's greatest strengths and weaknesses?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    I think she has incredible moral sense that is really focused and determined and she has a very clear idea of what she believes is right and wrong. She will dedicate her life to what is right and for justice to be done and what is a really pure justice. I think the flip side to that is that she could perhaps be missing out on life and more experiences and more of the tender aspects of life. What do i know? She's amazing with a sword. If I were amazing with a sword I wouldn't care about the tender things in life.

    TomasMartin21
    Did you get to do any improvising in scenes or were there any funny moments on set?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    I work w/ Nikolai so it's excepted that there will be no funny moments on set. No, he's hysterical. The relationship we have offset is one long improvisation. In the scene were I’m canoeing Jamie Lannister. I learned how to canoe the night before and the amazing GoT aquatics team taught me how to canoe. It was the first time we worked together (Jamie) and he was desperately trying to get home for his daughter’s birthday so he’s lying there in his robe in the boat and I was clambering in like a tin man in armor and the whole thing is rocking back and forth. I have a wet suit underneath so it’s rather hard to move around and carrying a sword. I was so sure we would capsize and Nikolaj is pressuring me that we needed to get home. I was desperately trying not to capsize the boat but he was irritating me so much that I could help but tip the boat to see his reaction.

    xxbeetlejuicexx
    Is it hard for you to interpret Brienne, a strong woman that fear nothing?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    It's not hard to interpret it because really, my job is just about pretending. So, it's really exciting to pretend to be a strong woman that fears nothing because most of us are vulnerable characters that fear everything. It's incredibly pleasurable to inhabit that and for that to be my job.

    EaZeeeY
    Do you see yourself as a knight in real life?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    Yes.

    Reem_Bazzi0
    Is Brienne in love with Renly? Will she fall in love with Jaime?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    Brienne WAS in love with Renly, yes. I don't' think we're seeing any evidence of her falling in love with Jamie, no. But what does everyone else think? It's quite a hateful relationship at the moment. He's pretty hateful towards her and she doesn't like him at all. She doesn't respect him. I think that hate is quite an extreme feeling and can often be close to love. In that situation, anything can happen, can't it?

    fiamike
    What does Brienne secretly want out of life?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    I think she wants love and acceptance.

    OhBendy
    Your acting is phenomenal, invisible, like you're fully inhabiting Brienne. How did u approach getting to an understanding of the character?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    That's so nice that they think that, so wonderful. I'm so flattered, I really am. I just feel like I undestand this character. Sometimes something just chimes inside of you that you know this character and that it's within you and if that's what someone has experienced with my character then I couldn't be happier. I'm absolutely thrilled.

    LiamWSwann
    How does it feel to know your character is empowering for women?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    Brilliant. Personally justifies my choice to be an actor and I mean that. The thing is, it's not my character. It's George RR Martin's character and Dan and David's character. I couldn't be happier. I hope this opens up opportunities in the main stream for female actors and I hope women get something out of it.

    raebae9
    How do you feel that you personally have developed Brienne of Tarth beyond the pages of the books? #FSU #HBOCollege

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    That character is so well drawn in the books. It's so specific in the books and I really fell in love with her in the books. I don't think I had to develope her beyond what's in the books. I just bring my personal experiences but that's just what an actor does.

    SitaDalloway
    What do you think Brienne and Jaimie could learn from each other? And do you think Jaimie can change? Greetings from Chile :>

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    I think everybody has the capacity for change. From what we've seen so far, what he exhibits is a likeness and humor and a wit and I think that that could be a welcome condition to Brienne's life. I'm such a huge fan and I'm really happy with her the way she is. I could try to take a step back and look and her character objectively but I'm so close to the character so I'm very protective.

    vagnerfonseca
    Gwen, what you do to relax and fun, what you like?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    i absolutely love to relax and have fun. I like socializing, i like chatting, I like dancing, mixing with friends. I like to do something that's the complete opposite of the discipline that's required in my work. I REALLY like shopping for shoes and spending time in the cinema.

    serpintina1
    How has playing Brienne affected your real life, or has it had any impact on you?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    It's had massive impact on me. Not just in my working life but I'm really thrilled to be playing this character. But who knows, hopefully I'll. I think she's a really superb archetype to be in such a mainstream show. It's really exciting to be a part of that and to be dipping into that psychology and use them in your work. It's a really thrilling and welcome part of my life.

    GameOfThrones
    That's all the time we have for today's Q&A. Gwendoline, is there anything else you'd like to say to your fans before we go?

    Gwendoline Christie says:

    I’m really overwhelmed by peoples’ response to my interpretation of this character and I’m really, really grateful. It touches me deeply when people say they feel something that resonates with them. But I’m not surprised, George RR Martin has drawn a erally extraordinary character, pretty unusual and breaks a lot of boundaries and David and Dan have done a sensational job adapting that. I’m so thrilled to be playing it and that people like. It’s a terribly corny thing to say but I mean that. It overwhelms me.

    Source.
    Edited my OP note because I don't even remember the interview, lol I am such a flop. Anyway, Gwen is flawless.

    After watching the red band trailer over and over the big day is here. Evil Dead has hit theaters! Produced by writer-director Sam Raimi and star Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice) of 1981's The Evil Dead, the creative reins for this reimagining were handed off to new writer-director Fede Alvarez. Alvarez originally met with Raimi to produce a full-length feature based on his short Panic Attack (2009). When that film got put on hold, Raimi asked the young filmmaker if he'd be interested rebooting Evil Dead. He definitely was.

    Fans of the splatter genre should be too. The premise is nearly identical to the original: Two guys and three gals decide to spend a weekend in a old wooden shack and accidentally unleash the dead (called Deadites) when one of them says a few words from an ancient book, The Necronimicon, aka the book of the dead. One by one these BFFs turn on each other, until only one is left.



    The original spawned an instant classic sequel (ED2: Dead By Dawn) and the way-out-there medieval fantasy jaunt The Army of Darkness. Each film got sillier and sillier but Ash (Campbell) grounded the series with physical comedy and groovy one-liners. Wisely, the new film doesn't have new leading man Shiloh Fernandez attempting his own Ash. His character, David is more down-to-earth. The true standout is Surburgatory 's Jane Levy as Mia, sister of David. An action-packed, extremely gory, 90 minutes await you at the multiplex. Here are six ways Evil Dead keeps the jolts coming.


    1. The Goriest R-rated Film of the 21st Century: When the original Evil Dead was released in 1981, it was deemed too violent for an R by the MPAA, but nowyou can see the cult classic on network television. Gore hounds can get their fill of decapitations every week on AMC's The Walking Dead. Unlike that hit series, however, the blood in Evil Dead doesn't look computer-generated. Wherever possible Alvarez used practical effects. There are a few shots that look computer-tweaked, but pretty much every nail pierced, every limb dismembered was shot in camera, which goes a long way to convince even the most skeptical that you really can splice through anything with an electric kitchen knife.


    2. The First Scream has Zero to Do with Deadites, Everything to Do with Going Cold Turkey: One of the best aspects of this new version of Evil Dead is that Mia (Levy) has ventured to this cabin in the woods to control her drug addiction. She tried quitting before, but only lasted eight hours. Friends Olivia (Jessica Lucas) and Eric (Lou Taylor Pucci) will not let this happen again. As long as estranged bro David (Fernandez) doesn't give in to Mia's pleas to leave, everything will be fine. It's a great hook ensuring that once Mia comes to face-to-muddy-face with "It," no one believes her. They think it's just the junkie trying to trick them!


    3. It Really Is "the Most Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience:" The film has an unrelenting editing style. Most horror scenes cut away from the "good stuff" by literally slamming a door on the viewer. Here a doors slam, but we're stuck in the same room as Deadite and a soon to be victim. Director Alvarez taunts. Almost dares us to look away. Don't! What, you don't wanna be trapped in a restroom with her?!


    4. Tons of Easter Eggs for Fans of the original Evil Dead Trilogy: If you don't know the difference between a Book of the Dead and a Book of Spells don't worry, the plot is easy enough to follow, but if you have seen the original Dead pics you're in a for a treat. An old Cadillac makes an appearance, as does Raimi's rip-roaring demon-in-the-forest POV and so much more. Plus, in some cases, certain character traits are switched. And let's just say that old way of dispensing the Necronimicon ain't gonna work this time. Bonus: Be sure to stick around for the credits for a cool bit of audio nostalgia. And at end of the credits? Super brief, but so totally worth it.


    5. Jane Levy is Officially a Scream Queen: Levy earns her cred by wrestling a nasty thorn bush, burning herself in a shower and proclaiming "You're all going to die tonight." Once she's put in the cellar, the real fun begins as Levy amps up possession 'tude to new heights of cray cray. All at once she's creepy and quite funny. Does she ever let up? Sure, even a chainsaw gal like Mia takes time out to bask in blood-soaked rain. That's her kind of downtime.

    Can you stomach it? Will you be doing an Evil Dead marathon this weekend? Sound off in the comments!

    Thought I was watching this tonight and my failure of a boyfriend tricked me and got G.I. Joe tickets instead. I told him very loudly he was an asshole and left, while the people in the theater cheered. Highlight of my saturday tbqh. Do not fuck around with a hungry woman, damn it.


    Happy Saturday night, ONTD! :)

    Listen, whatever you do, NEVER throw shade to the b!tch holding the umbrella. Bae-Bae, I will be the first person to tell you that I never really quite understood all this lawsuit stuff between Kandi Burruss & Kim Zolciak. Publishing, royalties, contracts, all that stuff was just too technical and too confusing for me. I didn’t understand why they just couldn’t split the monies down the middle. HOWEVER, after hearing this unedited version of Kim singing The Ring Doesn’t Mean A Thing, Kandi deserves 100% of the money from Tardy For The Party and should have paid Kim for her time with a fruit basket.

    “See what’s going on here is you kind of don’t know what you’re doing with your voice” ~Jan Smith, vocal Coach

    Remember when the vocal coach told that to Kim? Boy was she right. Chile get ready to holler. This unedited version of Kim singing is proof that Kandi Burrus just might know what she’s doing in the studio. If Kandi was able to make anything out of Kim’s mouth profitable, then I imagine the contestants on her up coming show just may have a chance in hell at stardom. Check it out…

    Gwyneth Paltrow may be more about talking Goop than talking smack, but that doesn't mean she doesn't enjoy some funky beats in the kitchen.

    Although, the only time she can really get down, apparently, is when hubby Chris Martin isn't home.

    "He can't have background music on. It has to be 100 percent of his attention," the actress and lifestyle maven recently told London's Evening Standard Magazine. "But if he isn't at home, I turn on the hip-hop—I'm like a bad mutha rapping along to every word as I cook."

    And suddenly, the close friendship with Beyoncé and Jay-Z is making even more sense...


    On Wednesday, Paltrow was at the Barnes & Noble at the Grove in L.A. signing copies of her latest cookbook,

    It's All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great. (No word on whether they will also make you a more proficient rapper.)

    Martin left the spotlight to his missus, but the couple were seen leaving together after the signing.

    Backstory: Tomomi Kahala was a successful pop star in the '90s. During her heyday, she lived under the thumb (both professionally and romantically) of her producer Tetsuya Komuro. When they eventually parted ways and her sales declined she became depressed. She went through a bad period which led to failed suicide attempts and a tranquilizer overdose in 2009. She entered rehab soon after and last year she made a fantastic comeback on Japanese TV. This is her first single in 7 years.

    The eighth season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians is going to be quite a ride!

    This brand-new preview of the upcoming season teases all kinds of drama in the Kardashian/Jenner household, and while that's not exactly anything different from past seasons, there's one big thing that is: Kim Kardashian is pregnant!

    Keeping Up with the Kardashians season eight will provide a look into Kim's life as she goes through her first pregnancy, including her first cravings, her changing fashion choices, and the toll her busy work schedule takes.


    The rest of the family has their share of problems to overcome: Rob Kardashian has gained weight and needs to shed the extra pounds; Brody Jenner spends more time with his dad and becomes jealous of the way he treats Kendall and Kylie; Scott Disick makes an indecent proposal to Kourtney Kardashian; and Bruce Jenner causes a stir about protecting his home with firearms.
    Like we said...it's going to be quite a ride.
    Be sure to tune in for the season eight premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians on Sunday, June 2 at 9/8c, only on E!

    The glory days of Nickelodeon's All That started on April 16, 1994 as a "sneak peek" and debuted as a regular series on December 24 of that year. It was the Saturday Night Live for Nickelodeon's demographic and brought in a slew of major music artists that were relevant at that time.

    All That lasted ten seasons before it was canceled in 2005 and looking back, the musical performances are kind of legendary. Watching Nas perform the "Street Dreams" remix to a crowd of pre-teens and Missy Elliott on the stage with 702 for "Steelo," will likely make you feel very nostalgic.

    Here are The 20 Best All That Performances.




    TLC "What About Your Friends" (1994)
    Date: April 16, 1994

    As the musical guest on the very first 'sneak peek' of All That, ever, TLC performed "What About Your Friends?" with a high energy performance only to leave Kenan and Kel saying that they are, in fact, all that.




    Da Brat ""Fa All Y'all" (1994)
    Date: December 24, 1994

    Da Brat appeared on the first season of All That to perform her chart-topping hit "Fa All Y'all," and really engages with the crowd during her entire performance.




    TLC "Creep" (1995)
    Date: January 7, 1995

    During the first season of All That, TLC performs their Grammy Award-winning track "Creep" with a stage full of dancers, all wearing matching overalls in true TLC fashion.




    Aaliyah "Age Ain't Nothin' But A Number" (1995)
    Date: February 4, 1995

    In her legendary sunglasses and perfect tomboy style, Aaliyah performed her hit single "Age Ain't Nothin' But A Number" off of her debut album of the same name.




    702 & Missy Elliott "Steelo" (1996)
    Date: December 28, 1996

    The females of 702 got Missy Elliott to show up to perform her guest verse on their hit single, "Steelo." Irish, LeMisha, and Kameelah Williams rock the stage only to be joined by Missy in their glory days.

    Ryan Gosling filmed his new scene for his movie recently. On April 5, Digital Spy reported that when he filmed his bank robbery scene he did it right in front of customers. The movie is called "The Place Beyond the Pines."

    He wanted to get real reactions from people so he did it in front of the real customers and not actors, but Ryan thinks that people recognized who he was so it wasn't as good as he wanted. He says he had a gun and people were smiling and someone even had a camera phone.

    Ryan Gosling even teased that he has always wanted to do a bank robbery. Now thanks to his job he can say that he has done it. It sounds like he had a good time with it all. Would you have recognized him if he was in front of you robbing a bank or would you have been scared?

    "The Place Beyond the Pines" is now airing in theaters. Do you plan to go and see it?

    Actress Holly Robinson Peete got her breakout role when she was cast as Officer Judy Hoffs on the late 80s TV show "21 Jump Street." That show was also a hit for Johnny Depp. On HuffPost Live Friday, Peete admitted that some flirting did go on between the two, but she said she would never actually date him. Her reason? Her mother.

    A little bit more about the Kickstarter T-Shirts:
    1. For those of you who have expressed an overwhelming desire to get not one, but both of our official t-shirt designs, great news! We've figured out the details, so if you want to get both designs, you can! Just add an extra $25 (USA) or $35 (international) to any pledge above $25, and we'll be able to send you one of each! (Sorry about the higher price for our backers outside the USA. Unfortunately, it's needed to cover the higher overseas shipping costs. We love all of you equally, we promise.)

    2. We're getting down to the wire now. And since we're still hoping to reach a record-breaking 87,143 backers before the end of the week -- only 14,797, or about 3,000 each day, to go! -- we can still use your support in reaching more fans. To help with that, I wanted to share some graphics we've put together, in case you want to show your Neptune pride on Facebook and Twitter.

    Also Rob is having a Final Countdown celebration this weekend in Austin. Login to the Kickstarter for more information on when and where.

    <3 the "hot blonde" reenactment extra bit. Too cute!

    ***NEW UPDATE***
    Kickstarter went up to $4,812,615!


    4 days left, and Veronica Mars fans have pledged $4,785,996. I think they might reach the $5 million point which may be enough to film in San Diego. I'm thinking it'll be San Diego regardless due to the fact that they have almost confirmed a Comic Con visit.

    In case you were unaware, there is now a $1 dollar pledge that still gives you all the exclusive backer updates. The $200 pledge package is now gone, so if you want a signed movie poster, you'll have to do the $275 pledge package. If you don't want a signed movie poster, then you can still donate $75 and get the poster and some other memorabilia.
