The economy is on the upswing, but there remains some disconcerting signs:
Tim Tebow is still unemployed.
No worries. His whacko fan-base is on the case, appealing to President Obama to resolve this crisis immediately.
Yes, they have filed a petition on the White House's 'We the People' website, asking President Obama to call Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell, demanding that he sign Tebow.
I am not making this up.
Here’s the official petition: “Jacksonville Jaguars fans want the team to sign recently released QB Tim Tebow. However, rookie general manager for the Jacksonville Jaguars David Caldwell is blocking this from happening. If the Jaguars sign & START Tebow, home games will be sold out, sales will spike, the team will win and the fans will be happy. Mr. Caldwell is ignoring lots of facts about the misunderstood Tim Tebow while in Denver: Passer rating of 125.6 is highest ever in Broncos postseason history. Most yards per completion (31.6) in NFL playoff history.100.5 QB rating is best ever for a Broncos QB in his first start. Third most passing yards in a game by a Bronco rookie QB. (308, in his 2nd start), First 15+ point comeback in the final 3 minutes of an NFL game since the merger,7 game winning drives in just 16 games!”
Yes, get on this right away Mr. President! Ignore all that other nonsense like petitions for reducing gun violence, Wall Street reform and addressing the ills of the U.S. Postal Service.
The world as we know it will end if the Jaguars don’t sign Tebow!
Granted, the Jaguars are as irrelevant as you can get in the NFL. But the fact that they WON’T sign Tebow reflects the scouting report on the former UF Heisman Trophy winner. They know something all the other 31 teams know:
Tebow can’t play quarterback in the NFL.
And that’s the reason he’s not playing. Not because there’s a conspiracy among the NFL, Lamestream Media and all atheists in the world.
PS: The petition conveniently ignores the fact that Tebow’s NFL career completion percentage is 47.9, which is about as low as you can go in the league.
So to recap...
Takeda was in town to stop the Initiative from their terrorism, but Aidan killed Takeda for outing him to Daniel...
Charlotte is more dramatic than usual because she's pregnant...
Aidan and Nolan drained the Graysons' entire bank account ($3+ billion!)...
and the Initiative apparently put their plan into attack and used Carrion to turn off all the lights in New York and Long Island...
oh and Victoria was tossing zingers around like a flawless queen, as usual.

Something wicked this way comes!
You thought you were excited to hear that Gabourey Sidibe was joining American Horror Story's third season, which is subtitled Coven? Well, we're pretty sure she's even more excited! The Oscar nominee visited E! Newsto chat with Giuliana Rancic and Terrence Jenkins about her witchy new role—and talk about The Big C's final episodes!
"I'm so excited and I could not wait to tell the world because it's one of my favorite shows," Sidibe gushes of joining the FX series. Alas, Sidibe wasn't able to provide us much scoop on what Ryan Murphy has in store for season three, saying, "I know nothing. The news just sort of came in two weeks ago...I have not seen a script at all. I know it shoots in New Orleans!"
Sidibe has just one request when it comes to her time on AHS: "I hope I don't die first!"
We wish her luck with that!

When it comes to Real Housewives it pays to be BAD! OKMagazine.com has investigated the salaries of all your favorite ladies and basically—the more drama, the more moolah! Taking that into consideration, it's not surprising that the highest paid Housewife is Atlanta's Queen B — NeNe.
The 45-year-old, who stars in The New Normal and Glee when not wreaking havoc on the Real Housewives, signed a sweet $1 million plus bonuses deal for season six of the hit show, putting all the other ladies way in the shade.
Case in point, next highest earning Atlanta Housewife is Kandi Burrus, at $450,000, followed by Cynthia Bailey and Phaedra Parks at $300,000.
Season five of the show has completed airing and producers are now gearing up for season six!
Second on the high earners list is the New Jersey baddie that everyone just loves to hate—Teresa Giudice!
RHONJ pulls in the highest viewing numbers of all the franchises, with an average of 3 million viewers regularly tuning in for all the table flipping, family feuding fun, and as the fiery Italian is responsible for the vast majority of the on-screen—and off-screen—drama it's appropriate she should be compensated accordingly.
And, she is!
The 40-year-old rakes in a cool $650,000 plus bonuses a season.
Teresa's cast mates are way down the pay day totem pole from the Drama Goddess, with Caroline Manzo making $400,000, Melissa Gorga $350,000 and Jacqueline Laurita $275,000.
Next up, the New York City ladies.
Top of the pile are Ramona Singer and Countess LuAnn DeLesseps, who have both been on the show since season one and each earn a healthy $500,000 per season plus bonuses.
Sonja Morgan pulls in $220,000, Aviva Drescher $200,000 and Heather Thompson rounds out the bottom at $175,000.
The show is currently gearing up to start filming on season six.
Traveling west, another show original, Vicki Gunvalson, tops the Orange County earners, matching her Big Apple counterparts with a payday of $500,000 per season.
Snapping at the Housewives veteran's heels are Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney who command $375,000 and $325,000 respectively, followed by Alexis Bellino at a comparatively paltry $175,000.
Orange County was the first show in the hugely popular Bravo Housewives stable and still pulls in the viewers in their droves.
Season seven scored a healthy 2.8 million average pershow, the highest ratings in the show's history.
The Beverly Hills ladies are thankfully, for the most part, independently wealthy, as their salaries are definitely lower on the scale.
Restauranteur Lisa Vanderpump, tops the list— earning $275,000 for season 3, upping the ante to $350,000 for season 4 which is currently in production.
Kyle Richards will be raking in $225,000 for the upcoming season and Brandi Glanville, who started off as a part time cast member on just $18,000, enjoys a nice bump up to $175,000.
Both Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer have quit the show and will not be returning next season.
Finally, Miami is lowest in the ratings, and the salaries!
Adriana De Moura, Marysol Patton and Joanna Krupa are the top earners, each commanding a payday in the $55-75,000 range per season.
The Real Housewives of Miami first aired February 2011, it is currently filming season three.
This year, EW celebrated May the Fourth with a full day of Return of the Jedi, screening the end of the first (and definitely not last) Star Wars trilogy four times at the Egyptian Theatre. It was the biggest day yet of our first-ever CapeTown Film Fest. Boba Fett and Darth Vader were walking around the foyer. A full-sized Jabba the Hutt held court, accepting photograph requests from admirers.
There were special events throughout the day. After one screening, EW’s Anthony Breznican hosted a Luke Skywalker lookalike competition. From the wings, a new contestant emerged…Mark Hamill, undoubtedly the world’s most talented Luke Skywalker lookalike. The star of the original trilogy stuck around to talk with Breznican about the series’ past…and its future. Below, six important items of conversation from The Once and Future Skywalker.
He thought Luke would go dark in Return of the Jedi. Or anyhow, that’s what he thought when he started reading the final film’s script. “I know where this thing’s going. I’ve got one mechanical hand now. I’m all in black. I’m well on my way to the dark side.” Hamill expected the film would have a big fake-out, where Luke would only be pretending to be a bad guy. He also gently joked about the central plot point of Jedi: “Really, come on, a second Death Star? Really?” But he also reminded the audience that, if George Lucas had known all along they would make three films, he probably would have saved the Death Star for the third film.
You think the Vader-Father thing was crazy? Well, try this on for size. Hamill earned laughs when he mock-complained about the key twist in Return of the Jedi: The revelation that Princess Leia is Luke’s sister. “Why not have Boba Fett remove his helmet, shake out some beautiful hair, and…Oh my god, it’s mom! She’s been a double agent all these years!”
A Game of Trilogies. Hamill recalled how, on the set of the original Star Wars, George Lucas told the actor about his game plan for the Star Wars saga. “He was talking about how, originally, it was four trilogies of twelve [movies],” said Hamill. “But he cobbled it down to three trilogies of nine. I said, ‘Why are we starting in the middle?’ He said, ‘Well, um, this trilogy is the most commercial.”
Don’t complain to Mark Hamill about the Special Editions or the prequels. Hamill noted that his son Nathan helped keep him abreast of new developments in Star Wars fandom. “He’ll say, ‘Oh my god, Dad, Greedo shoots first now!’ I’ll say, ‘Wait, wait, wait. Let’s put this in perspective: Who cares?’” That led Hamill into a full-throated defense of the Star Wars prequels: “Jar Jar was supposed to be irritating! He’s irritating to the other characters in the movie!” He concluded by arguing that Lucas had earned the right to make Star Wars films in the manner he wanted. “Those aren’t sorta the movies he wanted them to be, they’re exactly the movies they wanted to make,” said Hamill. “And I’m not gonna criticize them at all.”
And yes, he’s excited about the new trilogy, too. George Lucas invited Hamill, his wife, and Carrie Fisher to lunch last year. Hamill figured he was going to talk about the 3D re-releases of the original Star Wars trilogy; as we all know now, the conversation was about something very different indeed. With regards to the new series, Hamill explained, “I’ve only had one creative meeting about the new films, but I do remember saying: ‘We’ve got to find a proper balance between CGI and old-school models.’ I want to have a more organic look so that we don’t get into Roger Rabbit territory.” This statement earned loud cheers from the audience, leading Hamill to laugh, “That’s just me! Don’t get too excited! I don’t imagine their top priority is what I want.”
Hamill knew that Star Wars would be a success. Although he didn’t know how big of a success. He told the crowd what he saw as the worst-case scenario: “Even if this doesn’t do well at the box office, this has cult hit written all over it. I see endless midnight screenings.” However, he was always bullish on its chances. “I predicted: This thing is gonna be bigger than Planet of the Apes. This thing will make at least $25 million.”

I miss Sean :(
Beyonce brought out her baby girl at the May 4 stop of her Mrs. Carter Show world tour. The hot mama took her baby girl Blue Ivy's hand during "Irreplaceable." Blue Ivy was sporting some protective headphones and a sweet dress.
If Beyonce and Jay-Z's first born is already getting the feel for the stage at age one, expect to hear her first single to drop by next year. (We kid!)
Check out footage from the concert below. Blue and Bey get some time together at the 5:45 mark.
Just over 1 years old and been gracing the stage since the womb, bleß <3 Also some sources think she's pregnant again because she's showing paunch in that jumpsuit. (Or for the Beyonce truthers, pregnant for the first time.)
There has been some drama lately surrounding "Criminal Minds," one of only a few shows at CBS not to have been either renewed or canceled for the upcoming television season.
Last week, showrunner and EP Erica Messer inked a new deal with CBS that leaves her at the helm of the ship for a potential Season 9 and now Deadline reports that all the stars have received final offers from the network.
Reportedly, Thomas Gibson and Joe Mantegna are close to re-upping with the popular crime drama, while Shemar Moore is still ensconced in negotiations.
Furthermore, Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook have reportedly turned down their final offers from the network -- they are unhappy with the female stars being paid so much less than the male ones and are willing to walk if there isn't something done to correct that.
There was a dust-up regarding the female cast members back in 2010, when A.J. Cook was reduced to a guest star and Paget Brewster was cut altogether. Fan outcry prompted Cook's reinstatement on the show.
A ninth season for the show is fairly likely to happen as long as Gibson and Mantegna sign on.
Blazing on to the rap scene is fiery Harlem girl, Gita, who made blogosphere tidal waves a year ago with the Two Stacks produced debut 'Hood Rich' and ‘Let That’. Perhaps more girl power was exactly what we needed? Nevertheless gaining quick attention as the hip-hop hyped one to watch late last year. Raised in Oakland and LA, Gita moved to Harlem NY in 2010 and was soon discovered by Steve Willis who shot iconic music videos for the likes of Mary J. Blige in the 90s.
Those Missy Elliot and TLC 90s influences are evident in the ‘Hood Rich’ video, however Gita returns in 2013 with vibrant pink hair and Minnie Mouse hair knots for ‘Mardi Gras’ video. A futuristic switch for the female rapper as she delivers over inventive warped beats produced by South London’s Grime producer, Darq E Freaker.
The accompanying video was filmed in an abandoned Victorian house in London and captures Gita’s old school-inspired visual style in an ominous surrounding. Find yourself joining the hype? Gita will follow ‘Mardi Gras’ with a new EP set for release in late spring so hold fire until then.
Watch it now.
Talk about taking punk to the extreme! Miley Cyrus looked nearly naked in a mesh Marc Jacobs dress. With her hair bleached blonde and super spikey, she finished off the look with lots of rockin’ bling.
Jennifer Morrison looked divine in a black lace Donna Karan Atelier gown that featured a sexy slit.
Rooney Mara took the plunge in a white hot Givenchy gown that was slit up the center and featured sharp shoulders. She finished off the look with a vampy coat of lipstick.
The “Devil” Anna Wintour looked incredibly classy in a pink Chanel floral gown.
Nina Dobrev’s Monique Lhuillier bustier pantsuit paired with a sheer overlay was definitely a break from the norm, but we sort of dug her eccentric take on punk.
Kim Kardashian made another maternity mistake with her powerfully patterned Riccardo Tisci slitty gown, that failed to flatter her baby bump.
Elle Fanning’s blue eye shadow and ear metal took her Rodarte look from bad to worse.
Minka Kelly covered up way too much of her fabulous figure in a matronly Carolina Herrera gown.
Karolina Kurkova was dressed for a night of clubbing in St. Tropez, wearing a garish Mary Katrantzou mini.
She’s just not punk enough to pull it off! Kerry Washington looked way to out of character in her punk purple Vera Wang gown, which she paired with leather gloves and purple streaks in her hair.

A former Toddlers & Tiaras mom has been accused of abusing her daughter. Mickie Wood, mother of Eden Wood, is accused of subjecting her daughter to physical and emotional abuse.
In her self-published book, Eden’s former manager, Heather Ryan details allegations that Mickie’s obsession with making her daughter a beauty queen, threatening her health and well-being. The e-book, titled Unleashing a Momster, is being sold at Amazon.com for around $10. The book includes links to various material, which Ryan includes as proof of the alleged abuse. Ryan describes Mickie as “lying, demanding and evil to the core.”
She states that Eden was regularly made to consume Red Bull energy drinks and espresso to maintain her energy level. Ryan points out that at age 6, Eden was far too young to consume the sugary and caffeine heavy beverages.
As reported by the Huffington Post, “Honey Boo Boo‘s” mother has been accused of providing similar drinks to her daughter, who also starred in Toddlers & Tiaras.
Ryan also details rehearsal and practice sessions that lasted for up to eight hours. Eden continually practiced until she was literally exhausted. Ryan explains that Mickie would routinely berate Eden if her performance was less than perfect.
Mickie is accused of calling her daughter derogatory names, referring to her as “little sh*t.” Additionally, she would often compare Eden to her father, calling her a “loser.”
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Mickie defends herself against allegations that she is a “control freak” and “baby-pageant slave driver.” She states that she is “going to do it whether you approve or you don’t.”
She explains that Toddlers & Tiaras is not scripted like some reality programming. The program realistically and honestly portrays the life of child beauty queens and their families.
Mickie issued a statement to the Huffington Post, directly addressing the abuse allegations in Ryan’s book. She states that the “allegations are untrue,” and she is “sad and disappointed” that Ryan has published “false and defamatory material.”
Ryan stands behind her accusation that the former Toddlers & Tiaras mom abused her daughter Eden.
Spill, ONTD ~ Were you in pageants as a child? Was it your choice or did your parents force you into it? Also, I always felt sorry for this child after seeing her on The Talk. Her mother was batshit crazy.
Europa Report Directed by Sebastián Cordero, the film stars Sharlto Copley, Michael Nyqvist, Daniel Wu, Anamaria Marinca, Christian Camargo and Karolina Wydra, with music by Bear McCreary ("The Walking Dead"), is hands down the most painstakingly accurate space movie we've seen in ages. You want some semblance of realism in the story of a three-year journey to Jupiter's Moon Europa? AND a gripping narrative, you got it. Here's out first impressions, along with an exclusive look at the brand new poster.
Europa Report centers around a six-person crew on a three year trip to Europa. The cast is made up of both men and women — but there's no drama. Don't expect the aged Russian astronaut to drop trou with the female pilot, that shit doesn't fly on this ship. Because they're scientists, experts, athletes, and military folk who take their mission just as seriously as Cmdr. Chris Hadfield of the International Space Station. Hell, their ship looks like it was built out of spare parts from the ISS. Even their water pouches are similar (if not identical) to what NASA uses.
The brilliance behind this no-nonsense approach is seen the second real problems occur. The first time you witness a member of Europa Ventures (this trip is privately funded) breakdown or let out a tiny yelp, it hits you. Hard. This is coupled by the fact that (almost) the whole movie is filmed from stationary cameras located inside the vessel. Full disclosure: We weren't thrilled when we first heard that this was a "found footage"-style picture. Fortunately the repetitive camera angles give Europa Report a hint of that Hollywood credibility, and also stress the monotonous existence aboard this ship.
We haven't seen anything like Europa Report in a very long time — and while it's definitely not free of blunders, it's a welcomed change to see space travel handled in a serious manner and still maintain the science fiction elements of suspense and exploration. This film starring District 9's Sharlto Copley is definitely worth checking out when it's released on June 27th on VOD and in theaters Aug 2nd.
I'm probably the only one out of 2 people who is excited for this film but fuck it, this is sounding more and more awesome (I hope this means we finally get an actual full length trailer soon)
