Madonna's running out of ideas? GGW video shocks some, bores others



Controversy about a suggestive Madonna video that includes religious imagery mixed with sexual content? Is it the 1980s again?

Madonna’s new video, “Girl Gone Wild,” premiered on E! Tuesday night, and already is provoking mixed reactions. Some love it, some hate it, some are concerned about the use of relligious imagery, and others are saying that the singer is stealing ideas from Lady Gaga.

The bondage-infused video for the song "Girl Gone Wild" is packed full of sexual images mixed with religious symbolism. It begins with Madonna reciting the Catholic Act of Contrition, a prayer of repentence, and quickly displays a group of half-naked male dancers grabbing their crotches. Later, one man dons a crown of thorns.

But religious imagery and shocking the Catholic Church in which she was raised is nothing new for Madonna, and for some critics, that's exactly the problem.

“Madonna is finally running out of ideas and rehashing her own back catalogue… badly,"

Madonna’s look echoes her Blonde Ambition period from the late ‘80s into the early ‘90s, but unlike this early video, which was banned by MTV for containing imagery of sadomasochism, voyeurism, and bisexuality, it is hardly shocking.”

Eliza Coupe interviewed about Happy Endings

BuzzSugar: Which of your costars make you crack up during scenes?

Eliza Coupe: Almost all of them. Honestly, all of them, they all do. If we have a scene with all of us, it's ridiculous. But of course Damon [Wayans Jr.] and I . . . they showed a gag reel at our wrap party a week and a half ago and it was edited down to two hours and nine minutes, and honestly the whole thing was Damon and I, because we completely break all the time with each other. And we do it purposely. We're horrible. The crew after a while is like, "OK, OK, alright, everybody."

Brace yourselves, 1984 is coming.

Orwell's '1984' Getting New Film Adaptation at Imagine Entertainment

Shepard Fairey, the street artist who is perhaps best known for creating the Barack Obama Hope poster, was instrumental in bringing the project to Imagine and LBI Entertainment and may take a producer role.

George Orwell’s seminal literary work 1984 could be getting a new movie adaptation.

Imagine Entertainment, the production house run by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, and LBI Entertainment, the banner run by Julie Yorn, are teaming up to develop a new take on the 20th century classic.

The book is set in a dystopian society in a perpetual state of war, which in turn leads to a state of paranoia. Propaganda, surveillance, mind control and cult of personality—all concepts seen in totalitarian and fascist states such as Nazi Germany and Stalin’s Soviet Union—were taken to new levels in the book, originally written in 1948 and published in 1949. The story centers on a man named Winston Smith who works for a government branch named the Ministry of Truth, where he alters facts and histories but secretly harbors desires of rebellion (as well as desires of a forbidden love affair). The ideas in the novel became hugely influential in the worlds of politics and art, with the author’s name eventually becoming an adjective (Orwellian).

Kathy Griffin Has Benign Polyp Removed From Uterus

Kathy Griffin is alive and well...with her sense of humor intact!

Fresh off her surgery to have a uterine polyp removed, the comedian happily sent out an update like only she can.

"Uterus polyp BENIGN!" she tweeted this morning along with this photo. "But had to show u my sexxxy hospital "leaky lady" panties."



Prior to entering the hospital, Griffin playfully posted a video on YouTube predicting that she would most likely "pass away," despite the fact that her assistant, Tiffany Rinehart, assured both Griffin and fans that it's a "minor procedure."

And while she joked her chances of making it through surgery were "very, very slim," Griffin still made sure to promote her upcoming show, Kathy.

"This is probably it," she said with a straight face. "The Kathy show, by the way, which premieres April 19 on Bravo at 10 p.m., probably won't even happen because I'm probably going to pass away tomorrow."

Of course, Griffin is certainly no stranger to sharing info about her nether regions, having had one of her Pap smear tests televised back in 2010 to help promote women's health.

Kendra Wilkinson gets a new show on WE

Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett is returning to reality TV … but on a different show, on a different network.

After taking a spin on “Dancing with the Stars” and two E! reality shows, “Girls Next Door” and “Kendra,” Wilkinson is baring all about her life for the cameras once again.

The 26-year-old reality star has a new show in the works for WE TV called “Kendra on Top”, the network announced Wednesday.

The provocative title makes the former Playboy playmate giggle.

“Of course you can look at it however you want to look at it,” Kendra tells USA Today, “but the reason we named it that was because everyone said, ‘Kendra, you’re the most fit, you’re the best wife, you’ve got the best family.’ Everyone’s been saying those words to me so we summed it all up.”

New York Jets Working on Cockblocking Tim Tebow

Report: Jets want Tebow to live in NJ



Jets officials are strongly encouraging new recruit Tim Tebow to live in New Jersey to keep him as far away as possible from the temptations of New York's nightlife, a source close to the team has said.

While believing the quarterback will be a great asset on the field, off it they think Tebow -- a teetotaler and virgin who is saving himself for marriage -- will need to have his hand held.

"The team will encourage Tebow to live in New Jersey near the practice facility," the source said. "They are not going to want him to be influenced and distracted in the city."

Robert Downey Jr. denies he is anonymous commenter spreading Hollywood dirt in blind items



Robert Downey Jr.’s camp is denying widespread speculation that he is the anonymous commenter who has been spreading dark Hollywood rumors on the blind item website Crazy Days and Nights.

Over the past month an anonymous commenter who goes by the name "Himmmm” has been dropping bombshells about bad behavior in Hollywood, detailing alleged starlet call-girl rings, pedophilia and rape.

Several clues provided by the anonymous poster as to his identity, particularly that they had almost let addiction ruin their Hollywood career, led other commenters and websites to speculate that Himmmm was Downey Jr., who had publicly battled addictions for years.

But this week, Alan Nierob, a rep for Downey Jr., is trying to put those rumors to rest.
“Of course he isn't,” Nierob told Fox411.com when we asked whether his client was Himmmm.


Nierob added that it will be up to the actor’s legal team to decide whether to press charges against the sites who are hosting the commenters who allege Downey Jr. is the anonymous commenter.

8 Celebrities Who've Been Arrested While Crusading for a Cause

When we think of celebrities in handcuffs, typically it's the Lindsay Lohans, the Sean Penns, the Charlie Sheens, those who are boozin' and cruisin', that come to mind.
But George Clooney?
Clooney was arrested Friday for civil disobedience after taking part in a protest outside of the Sudanese embassy in Washington, D.C. -- his father, Nick Clooney, and two U.S. congressmen were by his side. The Oscar-winning actor was there to call attention to the growing "humanitarian crisis" in the war-torn country.
"We need humanitarian aid to be allowed in to the Sudan before it becomes the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. Immediately," Clooney told the gathered crowd.
But this Hollywood darling isn't the first celebrity to have a run-in with law enforcement while fighting for a cause he believes in.

Niall from One Direction Speaks So You Better Listen

Niall Horan Denies One Direction TV Show and Talks The Wanted Feud



Niall Horan tried to clear up the rumors about One Direction getting its own TV show on Nickelodeon, but the network still hasn't explained why it tweeted that a series featuring the band was in the works.

Some 1D fans have been really worried about the band getting a Nick TV series since it would mean that they would have to be on their best behavior in order to be kid-friendly like Big Time Rush. However, there was a report saying that the guys didn't sign on to do a scripted show - Nick was considering a short-term commitment like a scripted movie or documentary series.

But now Niall Horan is making things even more confusing by saying that there's no Nickelodeon deal at all. According to Unreality, here's what the singer said about the rumors about One Direction moving to the small screen: "It's nothing that I know about. There's no sign of a TV show in the pipeline."

R. Kelly set to revisit 'Trapped in the Closet'


Ready for more salacious drama, singsong monologues and hilarious antics from Sylvester, Twan and Pimp Lucius? Good, because Grammy-winning R&B king R. Kelly is finally revisiting his cult classic “Trapped in the Closet.”

The singer’s campy hip-hopera originally began as a five-video series to accompany the melodramatic segment of songs on his 2005 disc, “TP.3 Reloaded.” Fan demand made the singer add more and more chapters, and roll out the accompanying videos on DVD.

He’s again teaming up with IFC to premiere the latest in the saga and promises the new installments will be out of this world. Considering the first 22 chapters featured an extremely complicated storyline that featured sexual exploits, little people and a mysterious package, it's impossible to doubt Kelly.

“The Alien is back and It has brought friends along. When I first began experiencing the unknown journey of writing 'Trapped in the Closet' I knew after the first chapter that I had tapped into something that was not of this earth. And being the nosy person that I am, I more than anyone wanted to know what the second chapter would be,” he said in a statement. “And now here we are at chapter 23, trapped in the million dollar question -- what the hell is the package? Well ladies and gentlemen not only am I ready to reveal what the package is, but I have many more chapters to share. I hope you're as excited as I am. Ok ‘Trapped in the Closet’ fans put on your seatbelts ‘cause ‘Trapped in the Closet’ is coming to take you away.”

Kelly will continue to executive produce, write, star and co-direct the series, set to air later this year on IFC. The singer is also readying his upcoming album “Write Me Back.”

Ani DiFranco on Rush Limbaugh, Protest Songs, and Being a Mom




If you thought Ani DiFranco has mellowed out and gone away just because she got all jazzy, became a mom, and won a Grammy for Best Recording Package, then you haven't heard ¿Which Side Are You On?, her best and most politically-charged album in many a year. In conversation she's no less artfully articulate on parenthood, the death of protest music, or why the middle of the road these days is still "fucking fascist." Do not underestimate the 41-year-old, O.G. folk-punk's ability to kick your ass when she plays the Fillmore on March 27.






You're one of the most prolific artists of  our time, but you took three years before releasing ¿Which Side Are You On?. Why take such a long break now?

That was all about being a mom, you know? Dedicating my time to my kid. Yup, she slows me down quite a bit. [laughs] Slowed down my average pace, which is terrific. It never would've occurred to me to slow down to a reasonable pace, but because I've been forced to it's actually been very useful I think. Taking a little more time making a record.

Anti-Gay group protests Star Wars game using RuPaul



Their mockup of Darth VaPaula, to show what would happen with the gay content promised by "Star Wars: The Old Republic".


The Florida Family Association is best known for badgering companies into pulling advertising from cancelled TLC reality show All-American Muslim last year.

From their website:

These LGBT activists want children to be able to choose Star Wars action figures who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. This would mean:

• Children and teens, who never thought anyway but heterosexual, are now given a choice to be lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender in their game player.

• Children and teens, who choose non-social agenda characters, would be forced to deal with lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or transgender characters chosen by other players.

There were no LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) characters in any of the Star Wars movies.

It could be something like Darth VaPaula, a combination of Darth Vader, one of the most popular Star Wars characters, and RuPaul, the renown transgender cross dresser.

Kirk Cameron: Exacerbater

It's your daily dose of Kirk Cameron!


Brought to you by Subway®.


Video: Kirk Cameron exacerbates situation, says gays 'headed down road that's going to be detrimental to themselves and potentially others'

After admitting he has friendly ears in longtime anti-LGBT activists Tim Wildmon and Tony Perkins again fails to take even an iota of responsibility for saying that gays are "unnatural" and "detrimental to society in a number of ways" and instead tries to flip the script behind some bizarre "bigotry" thought exercise. Oh, he then makes some more comments about homosexuality being detrimental. Enjoy:

This highlights one of the main reasons why I never use words like "bigot" or "homophobe." Anti-LGBT social conservatives have made a favorite past time out of taking those kinds of words and using them as convenient outs (e.g. "I'm not a homophobe, I'm not scared of gays"). They love to argue against a label because it helps with their most cherished pastime: Never accepting even a shred of fault for something they themselves said or did to hurt others.

Weak.

“During the tour, I was given this doll named Maria. She was advertised as lifelike. How does Maria make you feel?,” Janet wrote on Twitter alongside a photo of the doll.

The doll sparked angry reactions from her followers. “@JanetJackson I think the doll is in very poor taste. You”d think in 2012 people would have much more class and not be so ignorant,” said one fan.

The Golliwog or golly doll is a rag doll with frizzy black hair and skin based on a character in children’s books in the late 19th century.The term golliwog has since been used as racial slur to black people.

Whitney Houston Died from Accidental Drowning


Whitney Houston's official cause of death was due to accidental drowning, a source close to the investigation tells PEOPLE.

The singer, 48, was also found to have cocaine in her system at the time of her death, the source confirms. Contributing factors of her death included heart disease and cocaine use, an investigation found.

Houston was found unresponsive and underwater in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Feb. 11, a day before the Grammy Awards, and was pronounced dead at the scene soon afterward.

Coroner officials previously confirmed that prescription pill bottles were found in her room, but the number of pills were "not in alarming amounts."

Houston, who had long battled drug addiction, was laid to rest on Feb. 19 at the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, N.J., alongside her father, following a star-studded memorial the day before.

Selena Gomez: My Career Is Too Important To Waste It On Getting Drunk


Selena Gomez isn’t getting bullied by her friends, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson on the set of Spring Breakers — but she may be going through some peer pressure, which she isn’t bending into, a source close to the group of girls tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.

“I would be shocked if Vanessa or Ashley was ‘bullying‘ anyone, especially Selena,” the insider begins. “They are both really sweet girls. I do know Selena isn’t as fast moving as them, but you have to remember she’s also younger.”

That said, Selena, 19, might not always feel comfortable with the choices Ashley, 22, and Vanessa, 23, make in their off time.

“V and Ashley both love to have a good time, which includes some partying, and Selena isn’t really interested in all that,” our source says. “She has too much on the line. The way she looks at it, her career is more important than getting drunk.”

Adds the source, “But I wouldn’t say Ashley and Vanessa are partying their careers away either…they get their work done and do it well. If anything happened on set, it was probably that Selena felt pressure to be ‘cooler’ or whatever.”

We’re proud of Selena for sticking to her guns when it comes to partying. Most young celebrities don’t care about following rules, but she does — it’s admirable.

What I did during the second season of The Walking Dead, by T-Dog. + TWD Meme.



On AMC's zombie drama The Walking Dead, each of survivors fulfills a certain familiar archetype. For example, there's Rick (the fearless leader), Dale (the meddling codger), and Glenn (the hero-in-the making). There is also Theodore "T-Dog" Douglas, a character exactly like Hurley from Lost if nobody knew who Hurley was.

What makes T-Dog such an accidentally scintillating character is how little we know about him. The Walking Dead has a cast of maybe a dozen, but a first-year drama student could memorize all of T-Dog's Season Two dialogue in 10 minutes.

It is as if the writers refused to develop any aspect of his character out of some unknown religious principle. In the history of televisual survival dramas, even the basketball-playing robots from The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island had more personality.

Yes, for most of The Walking Dead's second season, T-Dog's main role was to wander into the shot every 27 minutes and frown, a telamon-like reminder that the post-apocalypse isn't sunbeams and toffee. He accomplished these guest moseyings with Waldo-like consistency, but just what exactly was T-Dog doing off-camera during those thirteen episodes?

Thanks to some unexplainable television magic, we have acquired this fictional character's personal diary. And judging from his memoirs, The Walking Dead's living enigma had excellent reason to make himself sparse.

Netflix may pick up "The River" if ABC cancels the show

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Netflix, who is already developing Eli Roth's original series "Hemlock Grove," and is in talks with 20th Century Fox TV about possibly picking up recently cancelled "Terra Nova," may also be eying another freshman drama that is facing cancellation: ABC's "The River."

Deadline reports that the streaming giant has had conversations with "The River" producer ABC Studios about the possibility of continuing the thriller/horror series on Netflix. Sources stress that the talks are exploratory at this point in the context of a larger conversation between ABC Studios and Netflix.

From my own perspective, this is exactly what "The River" should have been in the first place. The constant commercial breaks tear us away from any tension the show builds, while having it air on prime time forces the show to veer away from any violent content.

It should also be clear that, unlike "Terra Nova," "The River" has not been officially canceled by ABC, though that is considered a foregone conclusion. This could actually turn into a positive situation if transitioned correctly.

North Carolina gets ready for 'Hunger Games' fans


RALEIGH, N.C. — Fans of "The Hunger Games" are already turning up in North Carolina, seeking out places where the movie was shot, from old-growth forests to an abandoned mill town.

And the tourism industry is prepared to cash in on them, with everything from hotel packages and zip lines tours, to re-enactments of scenes from the film and lessons in survival skills.

The movie, which opens this weekend and is expected to be a box office smash, is based on a best-selling book about a post-apocalyptic world where teenagers compete to the death in fighting games.

It was filmed entirely in North Carolina, from the mountains, where fake trees were planted, filled with propane and blown up, to Charlotte, which served as the Capitol from the story — the seat of power where the teens are sent for training.

The film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ popular dystopian novel was shot on locations and soundstages in the western half of the state, and The Hunger Games pilgrims can take travel cues from the sites that frame the action, the stars’ favorite off-duty spots and attractions that District 12 denizens would love.

One Direction's US jaunt provokes war with the Wanted

The US success of former X Factor darlings One Direction has clearly riled at least one of their pop rivals


These days, we prefer all our wars to take place on foreign soil. It saves on cleanup and means we can get on with our daily lives in peace. Thus news that the Wanted and One Direction were slugging it out for chart supremacy in the US felt entirely apt. The Great Satan probably deserved to host a conflict, just on the Buggins' turn principle, and we could enjoy the sanitised footage back home without experiencing the visceral horror and wondering why such young men were caught up in it all.

Alas, all is apparently not as it seemed. Admittedly, one of the Wanted was quoted in People magazine saying: "If you look at One Direction's chart position and then look at ours, they're not really even our rivals. We laugh and say that their fans are our fans' younger sisters." But the same Wanted – or is it Wantee? – has since fired off anguished tweets denying any friction. "When someone takes your words and twists them," ran one, "its like a knife in the back #whathappenedtothe goodguys?!"

(Incidentally, back in 2010, Lost in Showbiz was given short shrift for suggesting that the obvious winners of that year's X Factor should be Five Erections – or "One Direction", as they prefer to style themselves – being the only ones with anything approaching 30 miles of the ballpark of star quality. I merely mention this in the week that Five Erections became the first British group in history to go straight in to the Billboard album chart at No 1 – while, of course, conceding that they're still no Matt Cardle, who will doubtless soon be taking not merely the US, but the emerging market charts by storm.)

'Octavia Spencer Day' Declared in Alabama



Alabama Governor Robert Bentley declared Wednesday "Octavia Spencer Day," reports the Huffington Post.

The Academy Award winning actress was honored by her home state and received the red carpet treatment. She arrived at the Statehouse in a pink (pink??) limousine and was greeted by the band from her alma mater, Jefferson Davis High School.

She thanked Representative Terri Collins for sponsoring a now approved bill that raises incentives for those who make movies in Alabama. Spencer promised to do everything possible to get more films made in the southern state.

There was a recurring joke throughout Spencer's day at the Statehouse — pie! "Don't hand me a piece of pie," said Senate President pro tem Del Marsh, to the Black Women in Hollywood honoree.

Later that day, the actress was honored with a glitzy reception at a Montgomery hotel where she received a key to the city from Mayor Todd Strange. He encouraged her to return home more often and said, "But please leave your pies at home. Don't bring no pies."

NY Jets Officials Wants Tebow to live in Jersey to avoid NYC Evils



Jets officials are strongly encouraging new recruit Tim Tebow to live in New Jersey to keep him as far away as possible from the temptations of New York's nightlife, a source close to the team has said.

While believing the quarterback will be a great asset on the field, off it they think Tebow — a teetotaler and virgin who is saving himself for marriage — will need to have his hand held.

"The team will encourage Tebow to live in New Jersey near the practice facility," the source said. "They are not going to want him to be influenced and distracted in the city."

A Sad and Troubled One Direction post.



'Hanging out' with One Direction in the US

When One Direction finished third in the 2010 series of the X Factor TV show, they could not have predicted that they would become the first British group to go straight to number one in the US charts with their first album.

I had never heard of One Direction - five guys aged 17 to 20, from the UK and Ireland, who had known each other for less than two years after being put together on The X Factor. But now I have spent three long days with them in fancy New York hotels, as well as in black vans with tinted windows, radio-studio green rooms and a few dingy basements inside suburban shopping malls.

Was Racism And Insensitivity Shown By The Vampire Diaries' Actor and Producer?



Incident One- Matt Davis Insults A Deceased TVD Fan

There seems to be a lot of confusion about what started the Twitter drama yesterday. It began because of Matt Davis and his dismissive tweets about a death of a beloved TVD fan. Her name was Leah (@leahmasliah). She was 17 years old and she lost her battle with cancer. People began posting tweets about her, telling her to rest in peace. Eventually a trend was started for her and people began tweeting the cast and crew of TVD for help. All it would have taken was a simple retweet, less than one second. But Matt Davis seemed to be annoyed by this and posted a truly damaging and hurtful tweet disrespecting Leah’s death.


Collapse )
Some fans were calling for a boycott of tonight's episode but that's pretty much moot now.
For the TL;DR crowd: fans of a tv show are upset with the treatment of a half black/jewish actress' character, so they tweet the show's producer. The producer responds with bullshit. An actor of the show defends the producer by saying that fans are playing the race card. The same actor basically tells a family member and supporters of a deceased fan to fuck off.

Top 10 Book Adaptations of Last 30 Years

The Hunger Games is storming into theaters, so effectively bringing Suzanne Collins' book to life (check out our review), and Movie Fanatic decided to rank the top page-to-screen efforts in history. Then, with over 50 films making the first cut, it occurred to us that we needed to narrow this puppy down. So, without further ado, we present the Top 10 Book Adaptations of the Last 30 Years... and yes, Gary Ross' film makes the cut!

10. The Bourne Identity

Start with Matt Damon as the titular hero and director Doug Liman reinventing the action genre and single-handedly any of the three Bourne films could easy qualify as a fantastic, effective and excellent page-to-screen effort.

Hot Damn @ Real Madrid

Real Madrid building $1 billion resort island in the United Arab Emirates


Have you ever dreamed of a place where the warm sun dries Iker Casillas' tears before they reach his cheek, the Persian Gulf breeze blows through Xabi Alonso's beard and Pepe stomps someone to death on the beach? Then welcome to Real Madrid Resort Island -- a holiday resort in the United Arab Emirates scheduled to open in January 2015.

A presentation at the Bernabeu on Thursday showed plans for sports facilities, a marina, luxury hotels and villas, an amusement park, a club museum and a 10,000-seat stadium with one side open to the sea. "It is a decisive and strategic step that will strengthen our institution in the Middle East and Asia," said Real president Florentino Perez.

The 4.6 million-square-foot venture is in partnership with the government of the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah and is expected to attract a million visitors in its first year of operation. But since that's a whole three years away, Jose Mourinho probably won't be one of them.
Hopefully Barcelona will build its own island right next to Real Madrid's, but make it so everything is miniature and inhabited by Ewoks.

Dan Harmon on Ratings Jump, Time Slot Challenges and Deliberate Character Shifts

NBC's cult comedy Community made a splash when it returned after three months off the air. If ratings continue to remain in the range, does this mean more Greendale?

Last week's return episode garnered a 2.2 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic (and 4.8 million viewers overall). The numbers were so out of the ordinary for the Joel McHale-led series that Community creator Dan Harmon tweeted "WHAT THE HELL MY EYEBALLS DON'T EVEN RECOGNIZE THESE NUMBERS" the morning numbers were released.

Meagan Good Lands Lead in NBC Drama Pilot Notorious


After 20-plus years of starring in countless quality film and television projects, Meagan Good is finally getting the small screen close-up that her career deserves.

Deadline is reporting that the 30-year-old actress has been cast as the star of the new NBC drama pilot Notorious. In the tradition of the glamorous nighttime soaps like Dynasty and Dallas, which ruled the TV airwaves in the '80s, Good will play a detective named Joanna Locasto. In the Notorious pilot, Joanna returns to the rich yet troubled family where she grew up as the housekeeper’s daughter and goes undercover to help solve the murder of a daughter in the family — her close friend from childhood.

It’s been a very busy time for Good. She’s currently completing a season-long arc portraying the character Kali on the hit Showtime series Californication and she will soon be seen on the big screen as Mya in the much-anticipated Think Like a Man, which also stars Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union and Michael Ealy.

And after years of critics crying foul about the lack of Black actors starring on network TV, the casting of this season’s drama pilots promises to add plenty of color to the prime-time lineup across the dial.

While NBC has Good in Notorious, Cuba Gooding Jr. will star in FOX’s Guilty and Andre Braugher is the lead in ABC’s Last Resort. The CW has Amber Stevens starring in Joey Dakota and Jessica Lucas will headline Cult. And starting in April on ABC, Kerry Washington stars in the midseason drama series Scandal, created by show-creator titan Shonda Rhimes.

After decades of watching Black actors star in sitcoms, it would be great to see all of these strong drama pilots make it to series in the new television season.

Yikes! Kim Kardashian Flour-Bombed on Red Carpet



What's worse: Being Ryan Seacrest and having fake ashes spilled on you at the Oscars or being Kim Kardashian and having someone flour-bomb you on the red carpet during an event?

The reality star was doing interviews at a launch party held at the London Hotel in West Hollywood for her new fragrance True Reflection tonight, when—out of nowhere—a younger female fan (we guess you could call her that) threw an entire bag of flour on Kim.

Was she super P.O.'ed?

Not at all!

"That probably is the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that ever happened to me," Kim told us. "Like I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that's a whole lot of translucent powder right there," she said, laughing off the entire ordeal.

Kris Jenner commented on the "festive" event, telling us, "If anybody comes at me with something, call security."

The mystery woman tried to run away, but Kardashian's rep held her and security escorted her away. And like a lady, Kim walked away calmly, got cleaned up and returned back to the carpet about 10 minutes later.

There's no exact reasoning as to why this woman did what she did, but some media members said they heard her saying something about fur (uh-oh).

Regardless, everyone was cheering and applauding our Kimmy once she returned. What a good sport!

Are thin women the enemy?


From super-skinny celebrities to models with low BMI, people are speaking out about women they perceive to be too thin. But some experts worry this behaviour makes things worse.

This week, Israel passed a law banning models from advertisements or fashion shows if they measure less than 18.5 on the body mass index (BMI). It's part of an effort to promote health for women of all sizes, and to stop glorifying the ultra-thin.

"Beautiful is not underweight," says Rachel Adato, one of the creators of the bill.

In recent years, much attention has been paid to how women are portrayed in the media, whether it's an overly airbrushed magazine model with an impossibly slim waist, or a TV starlet with protruding collar bones.
