Kansas City Royals advance to ALDS on 12th-inning walk-off

The Royals, who looked dead, pulled out a wild, pulsating 12-inning 9-8 comeback victory, with Salvador Perez delivering the heroics on a walkoff single, sending the joint into utter bedlam.

The Royals scored three runs in the eighth inning and another in the ninth to tie the game, then matched the A's run in the 12th inning to keep the game alive.

Ben Affleck Discusses The Cinematic Debut of his Penis In “Gone Girl”


“Correct me if I’m wrong, is this the debutof Ben Affleck’s penis on the screen?” asks an MTV interviewer in a press junket for the upcoming film Gone Girl. (that nasty interviewer betta werk)

Ben starts off treading a bit of word water:

“I don’t know, I try to get it in every movie…[Director David Fincher] said to me from the beginning, “this is a ‘warts-and-all’ movie. You can’t have any vanity. You have to see the naked underbelly of this character. It’s got to be, like, in Europe they just don’t give a shit about any of that stuff, and they just play real people, you know? And so that was the spirit of the thing, and we kinda stuck to that.”
But realizing he’s veering, Ben steers himself back on track like a seasoned pro:

It's official: Gags has been using Cher's old wigs


Where are you right now with your clothing? It seems like you’ve been channeling Norma Desmond from Sunset Boulevard and Cher with your hair. Did you have a particular muse in mind?

I’m always inspired by the greats. I look back at Ginger Rogers, and even though I might not be dressing like her, she’s been a big inspiration for me—as well as Ella Fitzgerald. Ella didn’t care how she looked. She wasn’t worried about anyone thinking she’s beautiful. She was worried about giving the most honest, authentic performance that she could.

When I was choosing what kind of hair I wanted to wear while singing this album, I remembered how I wore my hair when I was 13 when I sang standards for the first time. I’m an Italian girl, so when I get out of the shower, my hair curls up and I get out my diffuser and put spray in it. Because I’m returning to my roots with jazz, I thought I’d also return to my hair roots.

I feel very supportive and blessed that Cher has been so supportive of me borrowing her wigs. That shows the mark of a real artist.

Exclusive First Scene of USA Network's New Courtroom Comedy, 'Benched'

“Benched” is a single-camera comedy about a high-powered corporate lawyer’s fall from grace into the rough and tumble world of the public defenders.

Distinguished corporate lawyer Nina Whitley (Eliza Coupe, “Happy Endings”) has given up everything in her climb to the top.  However, when she’s hit with her ex-fiancé’s wedding announcement and learns that she hasn’t made partner at her high power firm, Nina snaps -- breaking vases and burning bridges.  Now that Nina is shunned from the corporate world, the only place she can get a job is at the Public Defender’s office: home to the underfunded, understaffed, overworked, “if you can’t afford a lawyer, one will be provided…” lawyers.

In addition to her new clients, Nina must learn to connect with her co-workers who include the roguish Phil (Jay Harrington, “Better Off Ted”), the idealist Carlos (Oscar Nunez, “The Office”), the useless empathetic Cheryl (Maria Bamford, “Adventure Time”) and the dedicated intern Micah (Jolene Purdy, “Under the Dome”).  If that didn’t sound tough enough for Nina, she’ll also be going head-to-head with her ex-fiancé, Trent, (Carter MacIntyre, “Drop Dead Diva”) the rising star of the District Attorney’s office.

“Benched” is from executive producers and writers Michaela Watkins (“Saturday Night Live,” “Trophy Wife”) and Damon Jones (“Halfway Home”).  John Enbom, co-creator of the critically acclaimed comedy "Party Down,” serves as executive producer and showrunner.  Mark Gordon (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “Criminal Minds,” “Ray Donovan”) and Andrea Shay (“Family Tools”) are executive producing for The Mark Gordon Company. “Benched” is from ABC Signature, a division of ABC Studios.

Amanda Bynes Kicked Out of Fashion School For Weed, Bizarre Conduct


Amanda Bynes was out of control at her fashion school ... showing up high and offering fellow students money to do her homework ... and we're told it got so bad she was kicked out.

Several classmates at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Irvine say Amanda has shown big signs of trouble  for a while ... and various people have told us she often went to class high on weed.

Student Rachel Loritz tells TMZ ...  Amanda often ditched classes ... but even when she showed up, she was clearly high, and not good at hiding it ... she almost always wore sunglasses and laughed out loud at inappropriate times.

We're told the pendulum would often swing and she would then get in "horrendous arguments."

Rachel says ... Amanda paid fellow students to do her homework .. and some took her up on it. Rachel says she rejected Amanda's offer.

We're told Amanda was caught cheating off someone during a test ... and when she was called out she threw a fit.

Multiple sources tell us Amanda was kicked out of the school last month.

Alyssa Milano isn't returning to Mistresses

After two wonderful seasons in Los Angeles, the studio has decided to shoot season three of Mistresses in Vancouver, Canada for financial reasons. It’s with a heavy heart that I have decided that I can’t relocate. I have two babies under 4. Being a mother and wife comes first and I just can not uproot my children and separate the family by moving away.

I will miss this job desperately and wish everyone the absolute best.

Tom and Jerry now streaming on Amazon Prime with racism warning

Tom and Jerry, the 70+ year old Hanna-Barbera cartoon, is now streaming for subscribers of Amazon Prime. The subscription has also paired the following disclaimer with the cartoon - "Tom and Jerry shorts may depict some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society. Such depictions were wrong then and are wrong today."

This is not the first time that old cartoons have carried this type of warning. For example, a Looney Tunes DVD released back in 2005 included a disclaimer by Whoopi Goldberg regarding racism featured in some of the cartoons.

That hasn't stopped people from being upset about the matter. According to BBC News, "the warning was attacked as "empty-headed" by cultural commentator and professor of sociology, Frank Furedi, who said it was a form of a "false piousness" and a type of censorship which "seems to be sweeping cultural life"."

"We're reading history backwards, judging people in the past by our values," said Prof Furedi from the University of Kent.

Source: BBC News
As far as I can tell they aren't playing edited versions of Tom and Jerry on Amazon (hence the disclaimer) so the arguments that people are trying to make don't even really make much sense. The warning isn't much different than what you would on your standard rating disclaimer.

Chrissy stirring up more shit

Talk about harsh. Chrissy Teigen apparently didn’t like Ariana Grande’s ‘SNL’ debut on Sept. 27 — she took to Twitter to call out someone in cat ears . . . and it sounds like she was talking to the ‘Problem’ singer.

While we absolutely loved Ariana Grande‘s performance (and skit) on Saturday Night Live, not everyone was a fan.

Sisterhood Of Hip Hop Finale

The majority of the first season finale of "Sisterhood of Hip Hop" makes a good case for why this is a show that needs to be around. It's a show all about camaraderie in a business that isn't known for that, especially among females. It's a show about personal and professional triumphs, from the girls' showcase "femcee" to Brianna's college graduation. "Sisterhood of Hip Hop" might look like an hour-long music video, but it really is about mature, professional artists who deserve a chance at success.

Just wanted an excuse to talk about this show. Besides the drama that happened on the finale, it's great to see a group of women who supported each other in a genre that's dominated by men. Oh... and Siya's girlfriend is a mess and a half.

Big Brother Winner Dick Donato: 'I Am HIV Positive'

For years, fans of Big Brother have wondered why “Evel” Dick Donato abruptly left Season 13 after just a few days. Now, the Season 8 winner has revealed the truth: He had just discovered he was HIV positive. Donato, who appears on the current season of Couples Therapy alongside on-again/off-again girlfriend Stephanie Rogness-Fischer, will make the revelation in Wednesday night’s episode.

Earlier this week, “Evel” Dick Donato told People that he first found out about his HIV diagnosis while competing on Big Brother for the second time. The Season 13 producers called him into the Diary Room and told him that one of his pre-show blood tests had come back positive. The Big Brother doctor then gave him another blood exam that confirmed the news. Donato left the series immediately.

“When they told me, I just went numb,” Donato said of his HIV diagnosis. “They had a car take me from CBS to my mother’s house. She was the first person I told.”

“Evel” Dick Donato is still not sure how he contracted HIV. But, he figures he likely got the illness during unprotected sex with a woman. Rogness-Fischer has tested negative for the illness.

“People are going to make assumptions about how I got it, and that’s okay,” Dick Donato said. “People are afraid to come forward because they're afraid of the stigma of HIV. I’m not gay and I've never stuck a needle in my arm, but at this point, it doesn't matter. We create a stigma around the disease that makes it hard for people to publicly say they have it.”

Thankfully, “Evel” Dick Donato insists his prognosis is good, despite his HIV diagnosis. He is currently taking one pill a day to keep the virus at bay.

“My viral load is virtually undetectable, I'm happy to say. I live a very normal life and don't have a lot of health issues. It also means that it's highly unlikely I could pass the disease along, although I don't have unsafe sex anymore. I fully expect to die of something else when I get old, not HIV or AIDS.”

"Evel" Dick Donato hopes to inspire others to practice safe sex following his HIV diagnosis.
With his HIV under control, “Evel” Dick Donato is focusing on sharing his story with others. He already inspired two Couples Therapy staff members to get tested for the illness, and he hopes to encourage others to do the same. This, plus his desire to stop hiding the truth, is why he has finally decided to reveal his diagnosis and the reason for his Big Brother exit.

“I knew it wasn't a death sentence like it used to be,” Donato said of HIV. “But it has still changed me. I do think about others a lot more now. I'm looking forward to going public with this, because maybe, just maybe, this can be the moment where I do something that really helps other people.”

Lena Dunham Opens Up About College Date Rape Experience & Recovery


Lena Dunham has built her persona on being a no-holds-barred writer, actress, and director, willing to put a comedic or critical spin on the most personal or off-limits topics and bringing them to light. While promoting her memoir Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's "Learned," on Monday, Sept. 29, however, she revealed that there are some subjects even she has trouble addressing.

"There were a few things in this book that I was terrified to put into the world," Dunham, 28, said in an interview with NPR's Terry Gross on Fresh Air. "The chapter about date rape in the book was a really, really terrifying thing for me to put into the world."

Leighton Meester for InStyle UK Nov. 2014 + Why you should be excited for her debut album!

Collapse )

5 3 Things We Learned About Leighton Meester From Our November Issue
  • It's still a pinch me moment that she got to play Curly's wife in the Broadway Of Mice & Men revival. 'Man, I really lucked out, the fact that I could spend six months on this compact, beautiful story that never grows old.'
  • She doesn't regret making a record with Robin Thicke in 2009. 'It was fun, but it wasn't at all me. I guess I can look back and say everything happens because you learn from it and you're better for it.'
  • Life is more important than just the work. 'My values have shifted greatly in terms of what I find important. It's my family, my friends and having a personal life. Those are the things that need nurturing.'

    6 3 reasons we can’t wait to get our hands on Leighton Meester’s ‘Heartstrings’

    Leighton Meester is a month away from releasing her debut studio album – and we couldn’t be more excited. You may have heard Leighton featuring on the major track from Cobra Starship ‘Good Girls Go Bad’, or her contributions to the soundtrack of Country Strong, but this is where this Gossip Girl makes her big break into the music industry.

    So far, only the single ‘Heartstrings’ has been revealed, but here are just more than a few reasons why getting excited for its expected release on October 27th is no mistake.

    5. Leighton gives an unreal live performance

    We know how it is in the pop industry. Too often are today’s acts more auto-tune and computers than genuine talent, but here’s where you won’t be disappointed. Far from a manufactured voice, Leighton can really sing and her lives performances don’t stray too far from studio perfection.

    Gilmore Girls On Netflix: 10 Best Episodes to Binge Watch


    When news broke that all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls were coming to Netflix, the internet freaked. The cult TV show, which was not sufficiently appreciated in its time (only one Emmy nomination...for makeup), started trending on social media, inspiring people to tweet warnings that they were likely to drop out of college, break up with their boyfriends, or quit their jobs in order to relive all the autumn-tinted memories.

    Sounds like hyperbole, but this withdrawal from society to live in fictional Stars Hollow is real. Some might say it's just a show, but it's a lifestyle. And now this way of life is about to open up to those who missed it the first time around. Hi, newbies! I suggest starting at the beginning and blazing right through (yes, even through the last two seasons, even though they are terrible). As for all my Luke's Diner regulars, here are the episodes most worthy of an immediate rewatch!

    Dating is the last thing on my mind’: Taylor Swift insists she’s not looking for love… and reveals fame and fortune have come at a cost

    She has been linked to some of the most lusted after men in Hollywood.

    But at just 24, Taylor Swift insists she’s given up on looking for love.

    Opening up in the November issue of British Vogue, the pop superstar admits that she isn’t interested in dating as it’s almost impossible to find a suitor who can handle her stardom.

    She explains: ‘Dating or finding someone is the last thing on my mind, because I can’t picture how it could work with the way my life is.

    'I don’t know how a guy is supposed to walk next to his girlfriend when there are 20 men with cameras, and he can’t protect his girlfriend because that’s the life she chose.'

    The Love Story hitmaker reveals that she’s now simply stopped thinking about finding Mr. Right.

    She adds: ‘I just don’t see how it could work, so I don’t think about it, and I kind of run from it when it presents itself.

    They think that they would want to get to know me, and maybe date me, but I don’t think they want what comes with it.’

    Ailee Takes a Photo with Beyoncé’s Producer Shea Taylor, American Debut in the Works


    Solo artist Ailee has attracted immense interest after sharing a photo taken together with famous producer Shea Taylor.

    On October 1, her agency left a message on their official Twitter, saying, “Ailee and Shea Taylor, the producer of world stars Beyoncé and Ne-Yo! It was a great session!”

    In the picture, Shea Taylor and Ailee are smiling brightly as they pose for the camera in a friendly manner. It appears the two talented musicians have been spending some time in the recording studio, and decided to snap a photo after wrapping up their session.

    Currently working under rapper Jay-Z‘s agency Roc Nation, Shea Taylor has penned some of the biggest hits for singers like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Ne-Yo, and Chris Brown. His songs “Love on Top” and “Run the World,” performed by Beyoncé, were nominated for trophies at the prestigious Grammy Awards.

    Ailee’s agency revealed, “Not only has Ailee worked with Shea Taylor, but she has been continuously preparing for her American debut with famous American producers since last year. All producers have had very positive thoughts on Ailee’s expansion into the American market, and they were hoping to see her debut immediately, but as the market is large and challenging, we are taking it slow.”

    Meanwhile, Ailee is currently promoting her powerful comeback song, “Don’t Touch Me.”

    Adrianne Palicki says Bobbi Morse might transition to movies + SHIELD casts Ward's abusive brother

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    Adrianne Palicki has been discussing her role as Bobbi Morse in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., calling the character “badass” and revealing that the possibility of her transitioning to The Avengers movies has been discussed.

    Palicki will first play the Head of Hydra Security in forthcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. episode ‘A Hen in the Wolf House’ and told us “Bobbi Morse is another badass character. She was been working with S.H.I.E.L.D. for a bit… She gets along with the team very well.”

    In the comics, the character of course becomes Mockingbird, marries Hawkeye, and joins up with the Avengers, and Palicki said that the chance to potentially join that big screen team was part of the appeal when she signed up for the role.

    “Absolutely – that was one of the things that was discussed when I was coming on for the part, and you know, we’ll see what happens. It’s such a nice world that we live in that crossover can happen so often now which in the past it never really did so, to see these worlds come together on the small screen and the big screen is really cool.”

    Ariana Grande Strikes Drink Deal -- Not With Coke or Pepsi + Uses Mariah for Promo


    In a new endorsement deal, Ariana Grande will try to do for bottled water what Diet Coke and Pepsi endorsers Taylor Swift and Beyonce are doing for soda: Give it some pop.
    The rising singing star will be the face of a new campaign for a small but growing functional water brand called Wat-aah! that targets kids.
    "We've aimed to make water cool and exciting to kids," said Rose Cameron, a former ad agency employee who founded the brand in 2008. Music, she said, is a "big component of that," adding that "what works for Coke and Pepsi I believed could also work for water."
    The campaign, expected to launch next year, will include outdoor, print and digital ads in teen and lifestyle publications. The agency is Berlin Cameron United. Ewen Cameron, the agency's chairman, is Ms. Cameron's husband.
    Ms. Grande has taken an undisclosed ownership stake in the brand and will serve as creative
    and strategic adviser, Ms. Cameron said. She has also agreed to talk about the brand on social media, where the brand hopes to gain the attention of what Ms. Cameron estimated to be her nearly 60 million followers on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
    "I love drinking water and I want to inspire my fans to do the same. Now as a partner in the company, I am excited to share Wat-aah! with everyone," Ms. Grande said in a statement.
    The brand is seeking to grab share from sodas and other sugary drinks with a health appeal that promises "no sugar, no calories, no bad stuff." The marketing strategy is fueled by kid-friendly, colorful branding.

    James Dean Death Anniversary: Here's 3 Facts About The Legendary Actor

    Today in 1955, 24-year-old James Dean died in a car crash on a California highway, but almost six decades later he remains one of Hollywood’s most enduring and enigmatic icons. Here are 3 revealing facts about the man behind the sex symbol.


    Just hours before his crash, James Dean takes a cigarette break at a gas station next to his beloved silver Porsche 550 Spyder that he named Little Bastard.

    It’s almost 60 years after his tragic death and still Hollywood is looking for “the next James Dean.” The young actor made only three movies in his career – East of Eden (1955) where he played the bad boy brother in the “Cain and Abel” retelling, his signature role as an angst-fueled teen in Rebel Without a Cause (1955), and Giant (1956) where he stepped into the cowboy boots of a nonconformist ranch hand. All of his movies became Hollywood classics, but he only saw one, East of Eden, completed.

    He was only 24 years old on September 30, 1955, when he was driving down Route 466 in his Porsche 550 Spyder and a car collided with his, killing him almost instantly. The young star's life and career was cut short, but his premature death contributed to the legend he would become. Rebel Without a Cause and Giant were released posthumously, and Dean came to epitomize the sensitive, troubled rebel who fans still connect with today. Who was the man behind the brooding Hollywood sex symbol? Here are 3 revealing facts that might give you a clue.

    Keri Hilson, Mother of God, Prayed Against Satanic Influences on Twitter

    Keri Hilson, the 31-year-old singer-songwriter, has decided to publicly pray against Satan.

    Hilson previously revealed that she has rededicated her life to Jesus Christ two years ago. Since then, the entertainer has publicly spoken about her faith and all of the blessings that came along with it, including her relationship with Oklahoma City Thunder power forward Serge Ibaka.

    Now, Hilson is combating satanic influences in her life in a very public way. Although it is unclear what sparked her prayer, the entertainer took to Twitter to give Satan and well over 3 million followers a piece of her mind.

    Hilson went on to share her prayer for a discerning heart amid satanic influences.

    The singer-songwriter previously spoke to Global Grind about how becoming serious about her Christianity changed her love life.

    "I rededicated my life to Christ in April 2012, I came out of a really dark depression, I actually met him (Serge) maybe six months after I rededicated my life to Christ," Hilson revealed to Global Grind last year.

    Quvenzhane Wallis reportedly attached to star in 'Counting by 7s' adaptation

    Quvenzhane Wallis' starring turn in Sony's "Annie" remake is still months from its planned Christmas 2014 arrival, but she's already -- and fittingly -- looking toward tomorrow. The Oscar-nominated Houma native and "Beasts of the Southern Wild" actress has signed on to star in a feature-film adaptation of Holly Goldberg Sloan's best-selling middle-grade novel "Counting by 7s," according to Deadline.

    The 11-year-old Wallis will play a 12-year-old genius named Willow Chase who has trouble connecting with anyone but her adoptive parents. When they die in a car crash, she is left in the care of "an unlikely surrogate family and an unfit guidance counselor." But rather than give up, Willow pushes through her grief and builds her own community of support around her.

    "I am honored to play the role of Willow in 'Counting by 7s,'" Wallis told Deadline. "I love the message behind the story. I am excited to be a part of it and to see it come to life."

    Wallis is a busy girl. In addition to "Counting by 7s" and "Annie," she is also set to appear in director Gabriele Mucchino's drama "Fathers and Daughters" -- starring alongside the likes of Russell Crowe, Jane Fonda, Aaron Paul and Octavia Spencer -- and to voice a role in an animated adaptation of Khalil Gibran's "The Prophet."

    "Counting by 7s" is being produced by Mazur/Kaplan and Olympus Pictures. It's unclear when production will begin or when it is expected to land in theaters.
