    BroadwayWorld: 1980s cult classic HEATHERS now sings byway of new Off-Broadway production HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL and the forthcoming cast recording is now available to order on iTunes.

    Bouffant hair, shoulder pads and croquet mallets are on full display in the new promotional poster for the Off-Broadway iteration of the musical.

    Plus, of course, the movie's most iconic line, "What's your damage?"

    The official description of HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL is as follows: "September, 1989. Westerberg High is terrorized by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing junta: Heather, Heather and Heather, the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. But misfit Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the dark sexy stranger J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their place - six feet under. Deliciously, darkly funny, romantic and moving, Heathers: The Musical is a truthful, uplifting parable for anyone who's ever been in love, in trouble, or in high school."

    Of note, HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL began previews on March 15 and opened on March 31.

    More information on HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL is available at the official site here.

    "If I wasn't black, that wouldn't have happened to me; I've thought that so many times I've lost count," says Michael B Jordan, star of Fruitvale Station. "A woman holds on to her purse as she walks by, or people cross the street when they see me, to being pulled over by the cops for no reason. I've been illegally searched. I've been harassed. Have I been in situations where people who don't know me have treated me like less than a person? Yes I have."


    One of Hollywood's brightest new acting prospects, calling from the set of blockbuster The Fantastic Four, recounts such incidents of pernicious racism as if they're obvious, inevitable. But Jordan, resting in his trailer after a morning playing the Human Torch, talks matter-of-factly. "It's just what comes with being black," Jordan says, "and it happens most of the time."

    Michael Bakari Jordan (his middle name is Swahili for "noble promise"), 27, grew up in New Jersey, the son of a teacher and a caterer. He started acting and modelling early, as well as learning to tap-dance, and his first break was in a Toys R Us advert. Despite being an obsessive basketball player, he made his name with the NBC American football series Friday Night Lights. You'll probably know him from The Wire as Wallace, the project pawn in Avon Barksdale's drug cartel, the one with the wide cornrows, wider eyes and all-too-obvious conscience."I'm always hearing, 'Where's Wallace, String? Where's Wallace?'" he says, laughing. "That's usually the first thing people say to me."
    But being young, black and American can also cost you your life, as his new film shows with brutal precision. Fruitvale Station, Jordan's first lead role, is directed by Ryan Coogler, a 28-year-old debutante straight out of film school, and shot in a clean cinéma vérité style for less than $1m. It's based on a true story, retelling the final day of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old black man from the San Francisco Bay area who, in the small hours of New Year's Day 2009, got caught up in a fight on a packed-out train, before being shot by a policeman in the chaotic aftermath. Footage taken by a fellow passenger went viral, sparking riots across the city. Coogler grew up in the same neighbourhood, is the son of a community organiser and probation officer, works as a counsellor in a juvenile prison, and has made his point in interviews time and again: "Homicide through gun violence is the leading cause of death among young African-American males in the United States."

    "I was living in LA, broke as hell and getting ready to go back home to New Jersey when I saw Oscar Grant's murder on Facebook," Jordan says. "I remember watching it again and again, feeling more and more angry. Oscar Grant is two weeks older than me. We both grew up in inner cities, in similar situations. Watching that footage, you think: 'That could have been me.'"
    The film opens with that same footage. It shows Grant trying to plead his innocence as he is cuffed and held face-down on the platform. Then, one of the officers unholsters his handgun and shoots Grant in the back. Grant died the next morning. The officer who fired the shot testified that in a panic he mistook the gun for his taser. He was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and walked free after 11 months. "Do I feel any sympathy for the police that night, in that heightened situation on Fruitvale Station?" Jordan asks. "No, none. They can say what they want, but a handgun is very different to a taser."
    Fruitvale was released in America just as George Zimmerman, the neighbourhood watch volunteer who killed the unarmed Trayvon Martin, was cleared of murder."It seems to be happening again and again; young men from minorities slain by authorities that are supposed to serve and protect," Jordan says, his voice an even cool."That is a fact. You do the math. All I want to know is why."
    As the ensuing smear campaign made clear – and as the film is careful to recognise – Grant was an ex-con with a dangerous temper who sold drugs between jobs. What wasn't widely reported was the fact he died on his mother's birthday, and had spent the early evening with his infant daughter, girlfriend, mother, grandma and extended family, eating gumbo and birthday cake.
    Jordan's performance in Fruitvale Station has been likened to a young Denzel Washington. The mainstream has called with lighter roles – his turn as the Human Torch is buttressed by supporting roles in That Awkward Moment, a romcom with Zac Efron, and with Dane DeHaan in Chronicle, a film about teenagers with superpowers. Fruitvale, though, shows Jordan's ability to communicate the essence of a complex, uncertain young man through a mosaic of tiny details. He can hold a scene just by straining the cords on his neck, or shrugging someone off with a loose, evasive smile.

    Jordan is keen to talk up the film's documentary basis. Coogler reconstructed Oscar's last day from trial records and court transcripts, while an attorney representing Grant's family provided access to witnesses on the train and passers-by who shared time with Oscar on his last day. The interactions we see, Jordan says, verifiably happened. Yet the film has had to weather claims it omits and distorts the facts of the case to create a martyr of Grant. A review in the New York Post read: "Given the vanishingly small likelihood that an established criminal's promise to go straight at any given moment should be taken seriously, the film doesn't push the idea of incipient redemption too much. It does, however, nudge us into making Grant more lovable with completely made-up scenes, such as one in which he cares for a dog hit by a car."
    Variety, meanwhile, said: "Even if every word of Coogler's account of the last day in Grant's life held up under close scrutiny, the film would still ring false in its relentlessly positive portrayal of its subject."
    Jordan admits the pitbull scene was invented. "But art is there for interpretation," he says. "African-Americans are considered in the United States as like pitbulls. We are looked at as vicious and intimidating human beings. So when that pitbull gets left for dead in the street, it foreshadows what's going to happen to Oscar. If people want to misconstrue that as being manipulative, then they might be in the wrong industry. But you got to ask whether they know what the fuck they are talking about."
    If the audience are being worked on here, then it's more subtle than the press might care to admit. The first time we meet Jordan's Grant, he's lighting up a joint and hiding his stash as his girlfriend harangues him for cheating on her; hardly a corrective for the stereotype of black youth. But then, in almost the same moment, Grant is scooping up his infant daughter and holding his family close, before texting his mum happy birthday. In that one scene, Coogler and Jordan show us what we expect to see, then flip the image to subvert that expectation.
    What, I ask, is Jordan's message to the film's critics? For the first time, his voice rises a little. "What's so unrealistic and manipulative about a black man loving his daughter, and having real, emotional moments with his family?" he says, the words firing out. "Why do people make these accusations? Is it because African-Americans aren't allowed to be real people? Is it because we're not allowed to be human and have human interactions with our family? Is that not allowed? Is it being manipulative to show those moments on screen?
    "Would you rather see us with a gun in our hand and a bandana on our face, acting like thugs? Because here, you ain't going to get that get. You're going to get questions instead."
    Fruitvale Station is in UK cinemas now.

    Back in 2006, a picture of Lil Wayne kissing his “father” Bryan “Baby” Williams on the lips surfaced online and many thought the photo would end the career of the Cash Money rapper. In truth, the reverse happened; Wayne went on to become a superstar.

    That infamous kiss is still a topic of discussion today. The latest person to weigh in on that display of physical affection between Weezy and Baby is former Hot Boys member Turk.

    During an interview with VladTV, the Louisiana rapper shared some of his experiences during his days at Cash Money and spoke about his own relationship with the company’s CEO.

    “We was all like Baby’s kids at one time. He took us from our momma when we were young, so he was like a big brother/daddy for the ones who ain’t have it,” said Turk. “Only one that [Baby didn't play the role for] was Juvenile, because even though his name was Juvenile, he was old. So he didn’t look at Baby the way we did.”

    The conversation then turned to Wayne and Baby kissing. Turk expressed the media and fans blew the situation out of proportion.

    “That’s just something n***as did in-house. Just like when n***a’s play basketball, n***a might make a shot, n***a hit him on his ass. That don’t mean he a fag, that means ‘good job’,” explained Turk.“We all used do that s**t. That was an in-house thing. N***as used to be like, ‘You got love for a nigga? How much you love me?’ It just was a homeboy thing.”

    Again, Turk revealed that Juvenile, being older, was the only one that did not participate in those actions. He also added he would not join in kissing other men now and that doing so at that time did not make him or anyone else at Cash Money gay.

    Individuals with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap that Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, NeNe Leakes, Phaedra Parks, Porsha Stewart and Kenya Moore are all in the final stages of contract negotiations.

    Bravo didn't immediately respond to our request for comment. The network is expected to make the official cast announcement after the cast's contracts are closed.

    This would be considered a good thing for Bravo, since Season 6 of “RHOA” was the highest rated season across all Bravo's key demos, including an average 2 million viewers in the advertiser-coveted Adults 18-49 demo. It averaged 3.5 million viewers per episode.

    There was some speculation that a cast shakeup was inevitable following a rambunctious reunion taping in which Stewart attacked Moore.

    There was the twist of Leakes and Bailey ending their longtime friendship. Leakes, the longest-standing castmember of RHOA, went so far as to suggest that Bailey added nothing to the show and should be fired.

    RHOA is the most-watched series of the Real Housewives franchise and has spawned four spinoff series.





    Teresa & Joe Giudice Are Spending Their Final Moments Together Fighting!


    Despite the fact that his time as a free man is slipping away like sands in an hourglass, Joe Giudice still doesn't appear to be changing his ways. We first heard that The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who's set to go back to court on July 8 to learn his fate, has been spending a significant amount of time drinking and generally being a hot mess, and now new reports have come in, claiming that Joe is barely spending any time with Teresa Giudice and his girls. Apparently, Juicy Joe's priorities right now are "doing his own thing, and doing stuff with the guys." And understandably, Teresa is furious.

    According to a source, "Teresa feels like Joe should be spending every minute that he can with her and their four girls, and wants to know why he’s ignoring them." Joe may only have a matter of a few weeks left to spend with his family, and from the sounds of things, he's been MIA. Although she's certainly in the wrong for their money troubles, as well, it's hard not to feel bad for Teresa for having to deal with this on top of the couple's legal woes.

    Shouldn't both of them want to spend as much time as possible with each other, and with their kids, right now? What an awful way for Teresa to spend the potential last moments with her husband: Pissed, annoyed, and confused.

    This, of course, doesn't come as a complete shock, being that Joe is, well, Joe.









    Did Heather Dubrow Fake That Phone Call?


    In Monday night’s all-new episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Heather Dubrow may have pulled the oldest trick in the book and allegedly answered a fake phone call to get out of a tough conversation. Fellow co-star Vicki Gunvalson was confident she knew what Heather was up to. “Heather, next time you answer a fake phone call, you’d better make sure that the screen lights up, because nobody was on the other line,” Vicki said, rolling her eyes.

    The call was supposedly from Heather’s son, Nicky. Immediately upon answering the phone, Heather asked, “Are you okay? How’s your stomach? What are you feeling?” Heather then passed the phone to her husband, Terry, who began to ask Nicky about his symptoms. The pair began to ask the other Housewives for the time, and made a hasty exit.

    Despite Vicki’s accusations, Terry has sworn the call was legit. “Really,” Terry told RumorFix. “If you rewind the tape, you see the phone lights up — look at it.” That’s true, but it could just be Heather turning the phone on! “If we were going to tell a white lie — it would not be about our kid being ill. It’s bad karma,” Terry added. “And if you know us — you know that if we wanted to go, we would go!”












    RHONY Stars React To Reunion Filming!


    On Friday, June 13, the day they filmed the reunion show, several of the housewives posted photos of them getting ready for the big event, before the makeup and hair stylists did their work.

    New housewife Kristen Taekman posted a photo of herself sitting in her hotel room's chair while still in her bathrobe, pajamas and slippers early on in the morning.



    Instead of dreading reunion day, especially since it fell on Friday the 13th, Kristen seemed to hope for the best, wishing her fans a happy day and declaring it "the lucky13th."

    Her enemy, Ramona, also posted a makeup-free pic. Her photo shows her with co-stars Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill in a hotel room.



    Like Kristen, they're still in their pajamas and bathrobes. Both Heather and Carole have their hair clipped back, ready for their glam squads to work their magic.

    Ramona also posted a photo of herself with Sonja Morgan, the women she's closet to on the show.



    The close-up photo shows what the women really look like naturally, although it seems that Sonja already has a bit of mascara and lip gloss on.

    Some of the housewives also gave their reactions to filming the reunion via their social media accounts. Sonja said that it was "exhausting," Kristen said that it was the "longest day ever" and that she's "so happy it's over," and Aviva Drescher joked during the lunch break that Carole is to blame if she doesn't come out alive.

    Even reunion host Andy Cohen gave his thoughts on the reunion via his Twitter account. He tweeted that he loved the reunion, which was full of "drama, tears and absurd conversations." While Andy loved the reunion, it's not likely that the women of The Real Housewives of New York City loved it as much!

    Singer Jason Derulo's latest single is called "Wiggle." It is, unsurprisingly, about women's backsides and what, specifically, they can do with them. The single has broken the top 10 thanks in large part to a video that checks all the boxes for your average sexist hip-hop/R&B music video. It opens on Derulo in bed with a veritable harem of women. Men ogle at women wearing next to nothing through binoculars, men drink out of a shot luge shaped like a naked woman, the singer pantomimes having sex on a stage and the women, of course, are wiggling.


    Objectifying women isn't an anomaly for the music industry itself. But it's a bit out of character for Derulo. Besides "Wiggle" and a couple of his previous releases (including "Talk Dirty" ), the majority of his music casts him as a tender casanova. His song "Marry Me" is a plea to the woman he loves to spend the rest of her life with him (baby-making music in the key of monogamy), and "Fight for You" describes his pledge to save a rocky relationship, despite the hard times. But his biggest chart successes have revealed an oddly lecherous Derulo who almost seems to mock his more tender side. It's like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde — there are two Jason Derulos, because pop culture demands two sides of every man.


    R&B is a great bastion of the male double standard. Singers everywhere are expected to be charming and gentlemanly in order win the hearts of the women in their songs (and, not coincidentally, the hearts of their female fans). At the same time, and even for the same audience, they're meant to assert their power and protect their masculinity by using those same women. On one track, they're charming and wooing you. In the next, they're rapping to Snoop Dogg about the precise shape of your ass. It's suspicious.


    Derulo isn't alone in this at all. Usher danced into the hearts of women with "My Boo," his soft duet with Alicia Keys about being childhood sweethearts. Usher sings, "There's always that one person / That will always have your heart / You never see it coming / Cause you're blinded from the start / Know that you're that one for me." So here we have an Usher who has been monogamous since age 5. And then there's "Without You," his most recent collaboration with DJ David Guetta, in which he sings, "I am lost, I am vain / I will never be the same / Without you." Sounds like the same guy — it could even be the same woman.
    But then he goes and sings "Lil' Freak" with Nicki Minaj, which is about picking out a second girl to have a threesome with."I'm 'bout to have a ménage with these here ladies / Lookin' like little freaks at the bar / Lookin' for a star," he sings. And in "OMG," featuring will.i.am, he ogles a woman on the dance floor: "Honey got a booty like pow, pow, pow / Honey got some boobies like wow, oh wow."
    The same exact trend plays out in Trey Songz, who can immediately flip between "But she loves me, and it's simply amazing" and "I only came here for the bitches and the drinks." Over and over again, a male R&B's repertoire says the same thing: "Yes, I love and cherish women, but don't worry, guys — I'm not weak."
    That lion-and-lamb double standard is damaging for men and women alike. It's the same as worrying about "being whipped," or putting hos before bros. You act whipped in one song to charm the women, and then you talk dirty in the next to keep men and women alike from thinking you're soft (like Drake). Such is the difficulty of playing to an audience of men and women in an unequal society.

    But this dynamic only reinforces gender inequality. One of the larger consequences of this double standard is that it helps fuel women's distrust of men. As Shannon Ridgway of Everyday Feminism Magazine explains, "From birth, women are taught to protect themselves from others (namely, men): Don't talk to strangers. Don't walk alone after dark. [...] [W]e internalize this advice and begin to learn to protect ourselves from the acquaintance that we kind of know from class or a job, or even from our boyfriends or husbands (since, after all, 1 in 4 women in the U.S. have been stalked, abused or assaulted by an intimate partner)." This isn't to say that all men are dangerous — just that since we live in a society where gendered crime is common, women can't trust that they can distinguish the violent men from the decent. So if Jason Derulo is singing about true love and marriage while also blatantly using women, his credibility among women starts to dwindle.
    Pop and R&B stars, then, are perpetuating a damaging culture of duplicity for nobody's benefit. Men suffer dearly, too: The cult of masculinity and stoicism weighs so heavily upon them that they often can't be themselves. But there are some who have turned away from this convention by singing about their personal experiences, like rapper and R&B artist Frank Ocean, who has, significantly, pushed traditional conceptions of gender and sexuality in R&B. We need more artists like him, because music matters — especially the music you make love to.

    The Andy Warhol Museum is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with a special event put together by curator Galaxie 500/Luna frontman Dean Wareham. Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films is a multimedia performance where musicians will live score 15 unseen Andy Warhol films.


    Five composers – Dean Wareham, Bradford Cox (of Deerhunter), Martin Rev (of Suicide), Eleanor Friedberger (of The Fiery Furnaces), and Tom Verlaine (of Television) – were selected to write and perform the music.

    The short films date from the 1960s and have been digitally restored by MPC/Technicolor. They feature notables such as John Giorno, Marcel Duchamp, Allen Ginsberg, Mario Montez, Marisol, Taylor Mead, Jack Smith, Mary Woronov, Edie Sedgwick, and Warhol himself. Geralyn Huxley, curator of film and video, said, “It’s so wonderful to be able to share these newly digitized films that reveal different aspects of Warhol and his film-making.”

    The world premiere of Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films will take place in Pittsburgh at the Carnegie Music Hall (Oakland), on Friday, October 17, 2014. It will open on the West Coast at UCLA on Friday, October 24, 2014, followed by an East Coast debut at The Brooklyn Academy of Music on Thursday, November 6, through Saturday, November 8, 2014.

    Andy Warhol and associates pioneered multimedia performances of the 60's with The Velvet Underground & Nico in Warhol's Exploding Plastic Inevitable.

    Tonight’s “Game of Thrones” was a grand finale, and what a finale it was.

    “The Children” had just about everything that you could possibly hope for and then some. It is not only the greatest finale that the series has ever seen, but it may also be one of the best episodes in the series’ entire history. Almost every story had a big moment, and this felt like much less of an afterthought than what we had at the end of past years.

    Without further ado, let’s dive into anything and everything that happened across all of the various storylines.

    Beyond the Wall - Who saw this story coming? We knew that Stannis Baratheon was going to be making a move soon, but for some reason this arrival completely floored us as his army conquered the Wilding camp led by Mance Rayder, and then used Jon Snow (who revealed his true identity) to determine his fate. This was a miracle for Jon, even if he was starting to come to terms with the King Beyond the Wall on how to move forward.

    As if this was not a great enough coda for the Jon story this season, we had him personally setting fire to Ygritte’s body, giving her the send-off he felt she truly deserved. Maybe there is a part of him that genuinely did want to stay in that cave.

    Bran Stark - This is also in a similar part of the north, but it deserved its own thread thanks to the progress we had here as Bran started to discover his purpose. He met the Three-Eyed Raven in human form, saw the Children, and also witnessed the sad death of Jojen, who knew he was going to be dying from the moment that he embarked on this journey with them.

    Meereen - For some reason, Dany chaining up her dragons was one of the most emotional moments we’ve had for her since the start of the series. We could tell that she never wanted to do such a thing, but was forced into it by them burning up townspeople, eating them, and then spitting up the charred bones.

    Arya and the Hound - Is this the end of the Hound as we know it? The beauty of this show is that it can make the death of even a pretty awful person something emotional. He went at the hands of Brienne in what was one of the most awesome fight scenes we’ve ever seen. Arya would not kill the Hound, but we assume that, pending a miracle, he is gone.

    As for Arya, she has started a new voyage aboard a ship, and this will lead her to another exciting story that puts her in a completely new place.

    King’s Landing - Now, we turn to what was a main event for many who were waiting for this moment on the show. Not after seemingly reconciling with Cercei, Jaime Lannister did a particularly shocking thing and freed Tyrion with the help of Varys.

    But, Tyrion of course could not leave well enough alone. He learned the true nature of Shae’s betrayal in an incredibly heartbreaking scene done by Peter Dinklage, and that was just the start of it. He then killed Tywin while he was relieving himself of all places, and it was probably the worst Father’s Day moment of all time.

    Tyrion is definitely going to have to lay low now, but it is fair to say that the death of Tywin means more politically even than that of Joffrey.


    As for this episode, amazing. Simply something that we’re going to be talking about for the rest of the year and then some. Grade: A+.

    TODAY’S JUNK FOOD: Mariah Carey’s Butterfly Drink!
    Yes, that’s right.  I said Mariah Carey’s Butterfly drink.  She has a drink.  I’m sure this won’t go horribly wrong.

    I first spotted Mariah Carey’s Butterfly drink on The Impulsive Buy, and instantly knew I had to try this ridiculousness.  Let me say this: this blog post is not about Mariah Carey.  I think Mariah Carey is uber talented.  One of the greatest diva singers of our time.  And her Heartbreaker video is one of the hottest music videos I’ve ever seen.

    Anyways, I say this to admit that when it comes to Mariah Carey, I am a fan.  I don’t have her Greatest Hits downloaded or anything, but I’m not hating on HER.
    But when it comes to a “melodic beverage inspired by the magic of Mariah Carey”…well, here we go:

    0
    Mariah Carey’s Butterfly was purchased at Walgreens. The cashier definitely gave me the raised eyebrow when I bought this. Well, don’t sell it in the store if you’re gonna make me feel like a creep for buying it, jerk! Keep your judgment as I buy this Mariah Carey drink and eight boxes of Oreo cookies.  KEEP IT.

    0
    “A melodic beverage inspired by the magic of Mariah Carey.” Somebody at some branding firm actually wrote this copy.  They did.  They proofed it.  They chose the simple font. The drink is CALLED “Butterfly”? Ridiculous.

    0
    This I similarly did not understand.  I already don’t ever use QR codes…and this looks NOTHING like a QR code.  Is there a chip or something embedded unseen in the ink? Plus, why is it spelled N’Syde? I get that it corresponds to the brand…but did someone choose to spell it this way?  Was it Lou Perlman?

    0
    *shudder* These ingredients are not inspiring. Sodium benzoate is not the magic of Mariah.

    0
    See? Somebody wrote THIS copy too on this bottle of Mariah Carey’s Butterfly. Pamper myself with a sip? This stuff better be good.

    I screwed the top off of this Mariah Carey’s Butterfly, and sniffed and WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO that stuff is pungent.  It smelled like gummy bears, flowers, and Fresca.  Oh no.  I fear this will be like drinking a bottle of perfume. Like, the perfume a teenage girl might wear.  I’m actually afraid.

    I took a drink of the slightly pink Mariah Carey’s Butterfly drink, and ….and…holy hell, this has to be one of the worst/scariest things I’ve ever consumed.  I’m sorry, Mariah.  Your voice is lovely. But this drink is not.  My face twisted up and I grimaced audibly after gulping a mouthful of this drink.

    It tasted, literally, like liquid sugar-free gummy bears.  No joke.  The general gummy bear flavor, I believe, is spot on.  I say sugar-free because I got that weird blend of sugar and sucralose flavor – you know, the kind when you drink sugar-free drinks.  Which I don’t like.  At times I also caught weird floral notes – borderline soapy.
    The Junk Good Gal took a sip and thought it tasted like liquid bubblegum.  Either way, this was horrible. I imagine this is what polyjuice potion tastes like.  Would not buy again. Ever.

    You might have to wait till next season of Orange is the New Black to get Flaca's backstory, but in the meantime, here's some backstory on Jackie Cruz, the actress portraying Flaca!

    Cruz originally moved to Miami to pursue a singing career; she instead ended up jumpstarting her acting career with a stint on Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Season 1 (2010)! See screencaps of her appearance behind the cut.



    Jackie meets Kourtney in an art class, where they bond over their lack of art skills


    They have lunch together, where Jackie reveals she left NY to get away from her boyfriend and that since coming to Miami, she has been dating girls.


    Jackie takes Kourtney and Khloe to a lesbian club, where Jackie and Kourtney share a brief kiss.



    The three go out again, and Jackie and Kourtney make out; Kourtney later feels guilty for leading Jackie on, and tells her she doesn't want to date.


    Jackie reappears in season 2, where Kourtney uses her to make Scott jealous; it doesn't work and Scott ends up flashing them instead.


    And an excerpt of Bitchin' Lifestyle's interview with Cruz, regarding her appearance on the show:

    AP: Let’s get this out of the way – some people may recognize you from a couple episodes on Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami. Were you randomly at a painting workshop or did you have to audition to be part of the show?

    JC: I always wanted to take art classes and I always passed by this art school on Lincoln road. I decided to sign up and Kourtney was in my class. It was all very random. I thought she was really funny and we hit it off quite well.

    AP: Having appeared alongside one of the Kardashian’s in a reality show, do you think that it a positive or negative impact on your career?

    JC: I definitely think it had a positive impact in my career because people got to know my name and what I was doing in my life. Kourtney is such a sweet person, and yes we are still friends. Now and than we text each other to see how we are both doing.

  • 06/15/14--20:08: Prince George is walking

  • Prince George has been photographed walking with the help of his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge.

    His tentative steps were captured on Sunday as princes William and Harry lined up on opposing sides in the Jerudong Trophy at Cirencester Park Polo Club.

    It is believed to be the first time the baby prince has been seen taking to two feet in public.

    George - who is third in line to the throne - will turn one next month.

    He was also seen playing football on the sidelines of the charity polo match.

    It was an "impromptu family day out", Clarence House said.


    George looked content as he concentrated on his first few public steps at a polo match on Sunday


    It wasn't all smiles for the prince, though.


    On the polo pitch, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry were on opposing teams


    That's right, I got swagger.


    Hello, what about me??


    Now that's the royal treatment I demand.

    At 31-years-old she's lucky to have the youthful looks of someone ten years her junior.

    But Kate Mara rocked a back-to-school ensemble with a more mature edge on Saturday night as she was seen leaving trendy eatery Crossroads in West Hollywood.

    The House of Cards star showed off her legs in a preppy pleated mini-skirt and covered up in a more formal over-sized grey blazer.

    Frank Grillo may play one of the few good guys in this summer's thriller The Purge: Anarchy, but when it comes to the Marvel Universe, he's as bad as they come. His Crossbones character was introduced in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and though the man otherwise known as Brock Rumlow was left for dead at the end of that franchise sequel, the actor is very optimistic that Crossbones will return in Captain America 3.

    Speaking with Collider at The Purge: Anarchy junket, Frank Grillo teased his villain's probable resurrection, claiming everything that Marvel does on screen is there for a reason. "I'm cautiously optimistic that you will see me in the not too distant future in the next installment of Captain America."

    While Crossbones started out as an ally in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he soon turned to the dark side, and he took quite a beating for this decision. He wasn't left in great shape, but that didn't worry Frank Grillo at all.

    "Very early on the [directors] said, 'Look, this is an origin film for this character. We're gonna discover who this is and this is a big movie with a lot of moving parts, but we're gonna discover you in this film and, you know, here's the information about who Brock Rumlow turns into...And so we've had multiple discussions about what comes after that, that thing. So, you know, it's obvious Rumlow is covered in rubble and burned to crisp at the end, but you see he's still there. They don't do that for no reason."

    How will Crossbones cover up his scarred body? Frank Grillo has an idea. "He needs a costume! Coincidentally it could be a mask with a crossbones on it."

    Are you excited about the possible return of Crossbones in Captain America 3, or do you want to move onto other new characters?
    Captain America 3 comes to theaters May 6th, 2016. The film is directed by Anthony Russo, Joe Russo.

    The X-Men franchise is going to continue its trend of time-hopping for its next installment, X-Men: Apocalypse. While the original trilogy took place in the present day, the films have jumped around considerably since then. Origins: Wolverine went from the American Revolutionary War to the 1970s, First Class took us to 1962, The Wolverine jumped from 1945 to the present day, and Days of Future Past went from the near future to 1973. Back in March, director Bryan Singer revealed that Apocalypse would explore (and destroy) the 1980s, and we now know exactly when that will be.

    Days of Future Past scribe and producer Simon Kinberg, who appeared on the latest episode of Q & A with Jeff Goldsmith, revealed that Apocalypse is set in 1983, ten years after the events of Days of Future Past.

    For those keeping track at home, that means that Apocalypse takes place 21 years after First Class. With younger cast members James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult all confirmed to return, will we start to see signs of aging? Perhaps it’s time for McAvoy to start losing some hair or for Magneto to start going grey. Meanwhile, Lawrence and Hoult will probably stay relatively unchanged, thanks to the effect of their physique-altering mutations.

    The most intriguing thing about Apocalypse’s time frame is that it will allow for younger versions of some staple members of the X-Men, namely Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm, Gambit (to be played by Channing Tatum) and possibly Nightcrawler, to enter the story. Hopefully, we’ll finally get to see these fan-favorites where they belong – under the tutelage of Xavier and honing their skills.

    Additionally, the ten-year jump allows for several intriguing storytelling possibilities. How has the general opinion towards mutants changed since the events of DOFP? Has the world gotten more dangerous for mutants since the things that happened with the Sentinel program? And has Wolverine gone into the Weapon X program and received his adamantium claws?

    Hopefully, all of these questions and more will be answered when X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27th, 2016.

    Forget books or teddy bears - for baby North West only diamonds will do.
    And as Kim Kardashian, 33, and Kanye West, 37, stepped out with their daughter on her first birthday, they revealed shiny new stones in her ears.
    The studs were a new addition for the one-year-old - they were not seen in pictures from her parents wedding last month.


    The earrings were revealed as Kim and Kanye took her to the Children's Museum Of Manhattan in honour of her special day.

    While piercing children's ears is a controversial choice, in some cultures it is seen as a traditional step for young girls.

    Within the Armenian culture, which is Kim's heritage, it is not usually a typical practice.

    Little North was wearing a white dress, coordinating with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.

    Showing off her svelte post-baby body, the reality TV star wore a tight off-white shirt and high-waisted olive green pencil skirt with lace-up booties.

    Kim matched her daughter by wearing big diamond stud earrings.

    And she made a point of wearing her gold 'north' necklace in honour of the special day.

    Kanye coordinated with the pair, wearing a white T-shirt with his ripped denim trousers and tennis shoes.

    With North being the couple's first and only child, Sunday was bound to be one for the books.

    And it deemed to be special for grandma Kris Jenner, 58, too.

    Kim Kardashian's mother posted a picture of North on Instagram, saying: 'Happy 1st Birthday to my beautiful Granddaughter North!!!! You are an angel and I love you so very much!!! #lovebug #pinchthosecheeks.'
