Ray J Offers Sex Tape Profits To Kanye & Kim As Wedding Present

Ray J has reportedly offered a portion of his sex tape profits to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian for their wedding, according to TMZ.

The singer has offered to give the couple approximately $47,000, a portion which reportedly represents four months of his 2014 profits from a pornographic film that he made with Kim Kardashian.

The breakdown of the money is as follows, according to the publication. Ray J reportedly made $6,135.60 in January; $20,097.31 in February; $9,674.76 in March; and $10,931.52 in April. The total amount he made in those months adds up to $46,840.13.

Vivid Entertainment says the tape has grossed $50 million since its release seven years ago. Kardashian reportedly makes at least the same amount of Ray J, though her profits were not published.

Ray J will donate the money to Kardashian's favorite charity if he doesn't accept the gift, the publication reports.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are slated to be married May 24 in Florence, Italy.

Toni Braxton Opens Up About Secret Abortion


You’re probably familiar with the rates by now: One in 10 women will have an abortion by age 20, one in four by age 30 and three in 10 by age 45. It makes it very likely that someone you know has had an abortion in their lifetime.

Toni Braxton is the latest to reveal that she has had an abortion in the past. In an exclusive Entertainment Tonight interview, the singer revealed more than ten years ago she became pregnant by her then boyfriend, Keri Lewis. At the time she was in the middle of a six-month prescription for Accutane, a prescription acne medication which can cause serious complications in pregnancy.

She decided to terminate the pregnancy, but admits in her new memoir “Unbreak My Heart” that she would’ve have come to the same conclusion even if she weren’t on the medication. The singer admits her decision was caused more by the refusal to inconvenience her lifestyle than any fear that her fetus had been harmed.

She confesses that the decision was followed by a huge amount of guilt from being raised in a strictly religious home that did not support abortion. She also admits that when her youngest son Diezel was diagnosed with autism, at times she felt that was God’s way of punishing her. She writes in her memoir,”Is God punishing me for that abortion?” The singer confesses she questioned if her lupus diagnosis and her parents’ messy divorce were God’s payback for her decision.

We are happy to see more and more women breaking their silence about such a very personal experience so that other women don’t feel so guilty and ashamed. Toni has had a lot of setbacks in her life so it’s nice to see her busy working again.


How 'Orphan Black's' Hair and Makeup Wizards Split One Actress Into 5 (3) (Very Distinct) Clones

All the buzz surrounding BBC America's very buzzy sci-fi drama Orphan Black is about lead actress Tatiana Maslany's jaw-dropping performance as a host of clones fighting to find out where they came from. And she deserves every kudo out there. (Emmy voters, are you listening?)

But she's not alone: There are people working hard behind the scenes, too, visually transforming Maslany into five clones so thoroughly distinct that we sometimes have to remind ourselves it's the same actress playing both uptight soccer mom Alison and whacked-out murderer Helena. (Those two don't even look like they belong to the same species.)

Yahoo TV asked the show's key makeup artist Stephen Lynch and key hair stylist Sandy Sokolowski to let us in on their creative process — and it's a hectic one. The Orphan Black shooting schedule is dictated by location, so Maslany ends up switching from clone to clone each day. Once a scene ends, she races to Lynch's chair to get made up to play the next clone, and then to Sokolowski to apply the clone's hairdo.

I really wish the makeup artist would give the clones differently looking/shaped eyebrows though.

Alfonso Cuarón May Direct Harry Potter Spin-Off ‘Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them’

There’s nothing official yet, but fans of the film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban may have a big reason to anticipate the new Harry Potter spin-off film, Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them. Reports this morning say that Alfonso Cuarón, fresh off the triumph of Gravity, is readying a return to the Potter franchise. He’s reportedly “deep in talks” to direct the first spin-off film, which is scripted by J.K. Rowling and scheduled for a 2016 release.

Matt Bomer talks The Normal Heart, his kids' reaction to his weight loss, and marriage

Things are about to change in a big way for actor Matt Bomer.

While he’s been on our radar for years now due to his role as con artist Neal Caffrey on USA’s drama “White Collar” and films like “Magic Mike,” nothing will prepare even his most diehard fans for his deeply profound work as Felix Turner in the HBO film, “The Normal Heart,” which premieres Sunday on HBO.

In the film adaptation of Larry Kramer’s Tony-winning play, Turner is a journalist who meets activist Ned Weeks (Mark Ruffalo) and the two begin a love affair that, given the times of AIDS tearing through the gay community in the early 1980s, goes through some heavily tragic moments. And, as I stated in my recent preview of the film, this is the best work of Bomer’s career and will take him to a new level of work…and, I predict, his first Emmy Award.

I talked to the actor last week about the challenges in the role, how his kids helped him shave his head as well as filming the final six episodes of “White Collar” and what his perception of marriage is now that he and his husband Simon Halls revealed they took the leap three years ago.

Watching you play Felix, I felt like this is a whole new level of work I’ve seen you do. Do you feel like that about your work in the film?

Matt Bomer: I felt so many things. This play has been sort of special to me for over twenty years, so I immediately felt an incredible sense of responsibility to the story and obviously telling Felix’s particular part of that story. So I was terrified, excited…you know, it’s weird but I became an actor by reading Larry Kramer and Tony Kushner and Brecht and Shaw and people like that and so these people changed my world view and educated me and challenged my point of view so when you grow up and you actually get to be a part of a story like that it’s a lot of pressure. But in many ways it’s profoundly liberating because you’re able to be part of something that’s much bigger than you and you’re able to just get out of your own way and try to tell the story.

HBO is getting all the Emmys, tbh.

Lana Del Rey is the second most expensive female performer

Pop music’s new power ranking are in and, at least as far as ticket prices are concerned, Lana Del Rey is making a serious charge to the top. According to TiqIQ, the average price for Lana Del Rey tickets on the secondary market are $269.68 for her current tour, making Lana Del Rey the second most expensive female performer in music at the moment — trailing only Beyoncé, who is arguably the biggest female star in music today.

However, the current comparison to Beyoncé may not be entirely fair, as Beyoncé will be co-headlining her upcoming “On the Run” tour with husband Jay-Z, making Jay-Z and Beyoncé tickets the most expensive of the current crop of female performers at an average price of $306.22. Perhaps a more accurate comparison would be Beyoncé’s “Mrs. Carter Show” solo world tour from last year, when Beyoncé tickets were priced at $294.01 on average. This would still keep Lana Del Rey in second position, but there is no denying that she is gaining fast.

The Walking Dead's Emmy Campaign Focuses on Humanity

AMC is reminding Emmy voters that The Walking Dead is more than a genre show and ratings hit.

The cable network is using its Emmy campaign this year to promote the zombie drama's focus on humanity, rather than the gore and special effects most genre shows are known for.

The series of posters highlights the character-driven -- and often heart-wrenching -- moments that comprised Walking Dead's recently concluded fourth season with the tagline "Something Human."

New International Transformers 4 Trailer Features Way More Transformers!

If you thought the latest Transformers: Age of Extinction trailer was surprisingly light on Autobots and Decepticons, this new international trailer contains a lot of new footage or robots in... well, not disguise, actually, because they're too busy blowing stuff up to stay hidden. Robots in action, I guess.

We also get a lot Mark Wahlberg carrying an alien gun, which begs the question: Where did he get it? It shouldn't be from the Decepticons, because all the Transformers are huge — none of them could possibly use such a tony weapon. Are there small bad guys in this film? Also, when Optimus Prime is bursting through Mark Wahlberg's barn, why is it exploding? Shouldn't Optimus just be crashing through the wall? Does Michael Bay think wood explodes when it's broken?

“DAMIEN” Will Bring “THE OMEN” to Television for New Series

THE OMEN finds itself the latest piece of horror history re-fashioned for television, following the likes of HANNIBAL, BATES MOTEL and the recently concluded ROSEMARY’S BABY miniseries. Glen Mazzara, who immediately succeeded Frank Darabont as showrunner of THE WALKING DEAD will bring DAMIEN to Lifetime Network, where the show will follow an adult Damien Thorn facing his destiny.

Does such mean that DAMIEN will take place between DAMIEN: OMEN II and OMEN III: THE FINAL CONFLICT? There’s no word yet of the series’ continuity, or lack thereof, with the films. Considering the sweet spot of success the aforementioned HANNIBAL and BATES have found in working toward established events, it seems likely. Instead, a vague description only slightly expands on the sentence I offered above, stating “Now an adult and haunted by his past, Damien is faced with a series of macabre events and must finally face his true destiny: he is the Antichrist.”

THE OMEN is of course no stranger to being tailored for TV, as OMEN IV: THE AWAKENING was a made-for-television sequel, while the 1995 miniseries remake THE OMEN attempted to transition the property into an ongoing show.


It seems like horror series are either hit (Hannibal) or miss (Rosemary's Baby). I wonder how this will pan out.

Dane DeHaan: Hollyweird's poster boy

1071571 - Copy

As he slips into the more comfortable title of sex symbol, the small-town Pennsylvanian and future James Dean is shedding the label of geek

Maybe it's the glassy eyes. Maybe it's his disarmingly slow, geeky warble. Either way, Hollywood's hottest property, Dane DeHaan – imported from the sheltered 'burbs of Allentown, Pennsylvania (pop. 118,974) – is finally on the verge of becoming a true sex symbol, after years spent languishing in the purgatory of being a “thinking woman’s crumpet”. DeHaan has just been made Prada’s latest poster boy, and bulked up comic-book-movie style (read: a gruelling six days a week at the gym for nine months) for the role of the Green Goblin in Amazing Spider-Man 2. He also plays a cocksure, Marlboro-lipped James Dean in Anton Corbijn's forthcoming Life, about a Life magazine photographer (Robert Pattinson) obsessed with the late icon. Surely he must be feeling like a sex bomb ready to detonate?

“I don’t know. God, I mean, there’s definitely a subconscious sense of confidence that goes along with it,” he smirks, adding a splash of milk to his coffee. He’s clearly bowled over by the idea that people would eagerly throw themselves at the former small-town beanpole. "People tweet…" He trails off, thumbing through his @-replies. "It hasn’t really reached an uncomfortable level of people throwing themselves at me in a way that’s uncomfortable. It’s just a whole lot of love. And that’s the really exciting part of it, I think." Don't waste your characters though, ladies. He put a ring on his high-school sweetie, fellow actor Anna Wood, in 2012. The couple live together in Brooklyn.

Most Valuable Parents: Bob and Linda Belcher.

In last night’s fantastic Season 4 finale of Bob’s Burgers, the show took a detour from its usual lighthearted tone and low-stakes format to create something bigger and darker: Bob Belcher’s life was in danger. After a back-and-forth about the fate of the Wonder Wharf amusement park, Bob finds himself tied up underneath the pier alongside Mr. Fischoeder, awaiting certain death, unable to properly communicate with anyone via his ancient flip phone. The rest of the Belchers cleverly decode the Auto-Corrected texts and figure out where he is. Bob’s life is saved by his family — led bravely by Linda. It’s a great ending for a great season that brought the Belcher parents to the forefront, diving deeper into who Bob and Linda are, and ensuring that they’ll never be one-note characters.

Much has been said about the Belcher children — I’ve spilled thousands of words just praising Tina — and for good reason. The three kids are arguably the funniest and most interesting children on television, providing a pure and honest reflection of adolescent themes. There is the anarchic and chaotic spirit that’s occasionally blocked by the limits of age-restricted freedom (Louise); the wild strangeness, childhood hedonism, and blind confidence (Gene); and the confusing navigation of sexuality and intense awkwardness of puberty (Tina). Bob’s Burgers‘ depiction of childhood is nearly flawless, and Season 4 has made great strides in exploring one of the reasons why the children are this way: they have wonderful, caring, and endlessly encouraging parents.

'The Godfather,' 'All The President's Men' Cinematographer Gordon Willis Dies at 82

Influential cinematographer Gordon Willis, whose photography for “The Godfather” series and Woody Allen’s “Annie Hall” and “Manhattan” helped define the look of 1970s cinema, has died, according to his close associate Doug Hart’s Facebook page. He was 82.

Willis was known as the Prince of Darkness for his artful use of shadows, and he was the director of photography on seminal 1970s films including “Klute,” “The Paper Chase,” “The Parallax View” and “All the President’s Men.”

He received an honorary Academy award in 2009 at the first Governor’s Awards ceremony.

Among the other Woody Allen films he shot were “Interiors,” “Stardust Memories,” “Broadway Danny Rose,” “The Purple Rose of Cairo” and “Zelig,” for which he was Oscar-nommed. His other Oscar nomination was for “The Godfather III.”

Regarding his work on “The Godfather,” Variety wrote in 1997, “Among “The Godfather’s” many astonishments, the photography by Gordon Willis — a rich play with light and shadow — confirmed Willis’ genius but was especially striking as an extension of Francis Ford Coppola’s creative intelligence."

Snap-Judging Andi Dorfman's Bachelorette Suitors

I'm worried for Andi Dorfman.

Don't get me wrong: snap-judging the Bachelor/Bachelorette contestants is always a highlight of my fiscal quarter, not least because of how incredibly un-copy-edited their bios are (What drunk intern is missing these typos? At one point, the word "door" is spelled "dloor"). But, perhaps like you, I liked Andi so much on Juan Pablo's train wreck of a season, I actually care about what happens to her. And I am not feeling optimistic about this group, who make their very toothy debut on Monday, May 19. Let's meet them, shall we?

Among Dylan's favorite things are Connect Four and apple juice, so I'm thinking this is more of an adoption situation.
