Blake Lively Is Expecting!

Blake Lively didn't announce her pregnancy via a Gossip Girl e-blast.

Instead, the actress and entrepreneur revealed she's pregnant via her website, Preserve. In a photo taken by her brother, Eric Lively, the actress cradles her very visible baby bump. This will be the first child for Blake and Ryan Reynolds, who met on the set of The Green Lantern and married in 2012.

"Preserve at its core is about family. 'Family' is the single word our founder, Blake built this home on," the website's editorial team wrote Monday. "We have something for men, for women, for the old, but we realized, we don't have anything for the new. With family on our mind, we looked to the origin of it all—to the women in our lives who are right there, at that special moment; at the creation of family."

"Today we celebrate them. With food to fill their tummies (as if that needs more filling), presents to soothe their tired (and swollen) soles, toys to warm their baby's souls, projects to provoke them, and decorations to inspire creativity and merriment in all," the team wrote in the photo-heavy post. "We had too much fun with this. Because there's so much to share, we break up our first ever Preserve Celebration into multiple parts. In the upcoming days we will bring even more treats and fun. The entire next month will be sprinkled with highlights for women in this exciting chapter of their lives. Congratulations to all the expecting mothers out there. And thank you for being a part of our Preserve family."

John Galliano joins Margiela

UPDATE, 10/6: OTB Group, the owner of Maison Margiela, confirmed today that John Galliano has been appointed creative director at Maison Martin Margiela. Galliano will oversee couture, women's ready-to-wear and menswear for the fashion label. The designer's first collection for the house is set to debut at Couture Week in Paris this January. [WWD]

After years off of the catwalk, Page Six is reporting that John Galliano is staging a return to the runway and it's going to be "bigger and better" according to the designer. Sources tell the paper that the former Dior designer will launch a couture line for Maison Martin Margiela. Margiela has been without a creative director since 2009 when the house's namesake founder departed the brand, since then a "collective" has been at the helm—save, of course, for leaked rumors of a secret creative director.

There have been starts and stops for Galliano, who faded from the public eye after being filmed making anti-Semetic remarks in 2011, including a stint at Oscar de la Renta in an unnamed role in 2013. Sources also tell Page Six, "He has already hired five or six staff members for his atelier in Paris." Margiela is currently owned by the majority shareholder, Diesel Brand's Renzo Rosso. Although Rosso did not comment on the rumors, Galliano's rep tells the paper, "He’s having active and ongoing conversations with a few companies." The next couture shows are in January in Paris, so we may not have to wait long for an answer.

German designer criticizes Megan Fox's "erotic" style (???), Megan is classy & DGAF

Hollywood star Megan Fox has reacted calmly to criticism from designer Wolfgang Joop to her clothing style. Joop said on Saturday in the ZDF program "Wetten, dass ..?" that Fox look as if she comes from an erotic fair. He called her "Micaela Schäfer's more expensive sister". (someone known for her nude appearances in public).

Fox let criticism bounce off herself. "That's a compliment. When people find my clothes erotic, then everything is fine," said the 28-year-old. "If he wanted to annoy me with his statement, he has certainly not done so."

Let's Discuss This Kickstarter Funding a Remix Using Nothing But Cat Noises

Noted independent rappers Killer Mike and El-P are set to release "Run the Jewels 2" on October 28th. But that's not all! If they raise $45,100 by that day, they will remix the album using nothing but cat sounds. No, it will not be cats meowing over the beats! The beats will be recreated using actual kitty cat sounds.

Reward packages include bags of catnip and the chance to have your cats' meows and purrs included in the recording.

Personally, I would be more likely to pledge my support if part of the funds went to help rescue cats or something. Unfortunately, it's stated explicitly on their kickstarter page that all funds are going toward production of Meow the Jewels.

The holy trinity of ratchet: Maury, Jerry and Steve, renewed through 2018

NBCUniversal’s trio of conflict talkers — Maury, The Jerry Springer Show and The Steve Wilkos Show — have been renewed through September 2018, said Ed Swindler, president of NBCUniversal domestic television distribution and NBC broadcast operations on Monday. The deal keeps all three shows in national syndication for at least four more TV seasons.

The shows’ main station groups — Tribune and Sinclair — have reupped the shows as have Hearst, Weigel and Sunbeam.
Maury, a top-five ranked talk show, is starting its 17th season in syndication. The show, starring Maury Povich and executive produced by Paul Faulhaber, finished 2013-14 as the top-rated top show among young women and adults.

Jerry Springer debuted in syndication on Sept. 20, 1991, and averaged more than 1.8 million viewers last season. Rachelle Wilkos, Steve Wilkos' wife, executive produces both Springer and Wilkos.

Steve Wilkos continues to show growth in its eighth season. Wilkos debuted this fall to its best premiere week ratings to date, jumping 23% over last year and 78% over its first-season premiere. All three shows are taped in front of live studio audiences at NBCU’s Stamford Media Center in Stamford, Conn.


This Cheerios Commercial Will Make You Cry

Last year, Cheerios had to close commenting on their Facebook page. Why? Because they ran a super sweet ad featuring an interracial husband and wife and their cute biracial daughter. Guess what, folks, we're not in a post-racial America.

General Mills and Cheerios prove they don't give a fuck and produced a video where a pair of dads share the story of how they met each other and their daughter.

This is not dissimilar to Honey Maid's "This Is Wholesome" campaign," which ran a series of ads on TV featuring a wide array of different families, including a boy with two dads, interracial families, and a punk rock mom and dad. They also included in depth explorations of the real families on their official youtube page:

As you might expect, that ad campaign also garnered quite a lot of controversy. People were mad because god forbid different types of families have visibility. A cursory Google search proves that the reactions to this current Cheerios campaign are mostly positive, but I wouldn't be surprised to see some conservative think pieces and calls to action for a boycott of General Mills.

5 (minus two) crazy quotes from a television expert who doesn't believe in diversity

Mathew Klickstein, the author of SLIMED! An Oral History of Nickelodeon's Golden Age, did an interview with [banned source] to discuss his upcoming event "New York Super Week," a festival celebrating late '80s and early '90s Nickelodeon nostalgia.

The interview starts out as a fairly typical publicity chat, but midway through, Klickstien's comments take a turn for the worse — to put it mildly. After being asked a question about whether or not a white upper-middle class show like Pete & Pete could succeed today, he responded with more than 1000 words of explanation (in the presumably edited-down transcript, no less) that essentially proved how little understanding he has about the importance of diversity on television. Here are three telling excerpts from the interview:

New Dating App - Tinder, minus the poor people

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Luxy is the new dating app for smartphones that is being billed as "Tinder, minus the riffraff," as it looks to become the matchmaker for rich people.

According to the CEO of Luxy, with the jump in popularity of high-speed online dating, the app filters out the low-income prospects of each neighborhood so that its users will only mingle with rich people just like themselves.

The identity of the CEO of Luxy remains hidden, as he is only identified by a spokesman for Luxy as Tim T.

Darren Shuster, the spokesman for Luxy, said that they decided to keep the CEO's identity hidden because of the expected criticisms that the app will generate.

Michael Phelps Suspended After DUI Arrest

Olympic swimming superstar Michael Phelps' comeback is on hold for at least six months after swimming's national governing body suspended him for six months Monday — including axing his funding — for his arrest on DUI charges last week. USA Swimming also banned Phelps from representing the U.S. at the world championships next August in Russia.

Phelps, 29, is six months into an attempted comeback after his retirement following the 2012 London Olympics, where he became the most decorated Olympian of all time, with 18 gold medals. Phelps was stopped last Tuesday in Maryland traveling 84 mph in a 45-mph zone, and police said he registered nearly double the legal blood-alcohol level. His representatives said Sunday that he's entering a six-week in-patient treatment program after his second DUI arrest — the first came in 2004, which resulted in 18 months' probation.

Sony Negotiating With Marvel Studios To Add SPIDER-MAN To The Marvel Cinematic Universe?

HitFix have a very interesting piece up responding to those recent reports that Marvel are planning on introducing a new team of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in The Avengers 3, thereby taking the spotlight off the likes of Iron Man and Thor to instead focus perhaps on Captain Marvel and other second-tier characters. It's well worth a read and I strongly recommend heading on over to the site to check it out. However, included in the story is something very interesting about Spider-Man.

Gemma Arterton Interviews

Doctor Who: Gemma Arterton says no to replacing Jenna Coleman as the Doctor’s companion – because she wants to be an alien. Gemma was asked about the possibility of joining the Doctor Who cast. She offered a rather different answer than most would expect though, saying: ‘I don’t know, I’ve never been asked. But if I did it, I’d like to be an alien or something and not the typical kind of Doctor Who assistant.’
'I haven't had great experiences in Hollywood so far. Maybe I don't fit in there': Gemma Arterton on Bond, musicals and getting physically violent


The mere mention of Hollywood has Gemma Arterton wrinkling her famously freckled nose. ‘I haven’t had great experiences in Hollywood so far,’ she frowns. ‘Maybe I don’t fit in there. It can be quite intimidating.' She’s only had a single espresso, but for a moment it would appear that the ‘brunette bombshell’ is about to explode. The Rada-trained actress laughs drily at the out-moded expression and quietly detonates. She has played the Duchess Of Malfi and Rosaline in Love’s Labour’s Lost at The Globe and has a portfolio of highly creditable films to her name: Tamara Drewe, Gemma Bovery, St Trinians, Quantum Of Solace, Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time and The Disappearance Of Alice Creed have all benefited from her presence and charisma. But Arterton has temporarily turned her back on Tinseltown to take the lead in an ‘honest and huge-hearted’ production at London’s Adelphi Theatre.

Witches Of East End Season finale recap

“Witches of East End” EP, Maggie Friedman, wasn’t kidding around when she said the Season 2 finale of the hit Lifetime series was going to be insane. “S--- goes crazy,” she said to the International Business Times, prior to the airing of episode 12, “Box to the Future” and episode 13 “For Whom the Spell Tolls.”

The supernatural thriller concluded it’s action-packed sophomore series with a special two-hour finale. And during those 120-minutes, we sat at the very edge off our seats; starting with very moment Killian (Daniel DiTomasso) downed a bottle of poison elixir.

Hip Hop Royalty Ashanti and Ja Rule Perform in Nigeria

Hip Hop Royalty Ja Rule and Ashanti have always proved to be “the best pair” on stage serenading music lovers across the world. And last Wednesday’s performance was not different as the American superstars kept fun seekers, in Delta State, Nigeria grooving throughout the night in the spirit of marking the nation’s 54th Independence anniversary.

The show, “Warri Again”, organised by Brownhill Event Centre, saw a galaxy of Nigerian artistes and comedians sharing the stage with the international artistes. It was indeed, a show of class and glamour as there was no dull moment while it lasted.

Despite the heavy downpour that almost marred the show, hordes of revellers continued swarming the event venue to catch a glimpse of the concert.
Ace-comedian, Ali Baba and songstress, Omawumi, who anchored the show, were in their best elements, dishing out rib-cracking jokes. The show kicked off at about 10 pm, with Seyi Shay mounting the stage to thrill the quality audience with her electrifying performance.

Thereafter, reggae-dancehall singer and songwriter, Patoranking took the floor and rendered his wave-making single “Girlie O”, But when he sang “Alubarika”, the audience took to their heels as they danced to the rhythm of the song.

THE PURGE 3 is coming

After The Purge: Anarchy surpassed the original film's $91 million worldwide gross on its way to $110 million, development has begun on a THIRD INSTALLMENT. True to Blumhouse modus operandi, the two Purge films had a combined budget of $12 million, and together have grossed $200 million worldwide.

DeMonaco, who wrote and directed the first two, will write the third with an eye to direct his storyline about a land where one night of the year, murder is legal and terrible things happen those unlucky enough to not be locked up tight in their homes.

“I never imagined that The Purge would become the phenomenon it has become,” DeMonaco told Deadline, “and I am thrilled to continue my collaboration with Blumhouse, Sebastien Lemercier, Platinum Dunes and the great team at Universal in building The Purge into a worldwide franchise.”

'Zlatan Ibrahimovic: The Movie' Coming to a Cinema Near You

Zlatan Ibrahimovic: The Movie? Do you need any more details?

It seems like it is coming closer to reality with reports in Sweden suggesting that a movie about the always colourful Paris Saint-Germain striker is currently in the works.

The film will be a documentary and has the working title From Rosengard with More Than One Goal.

Rosengard is the city district of Malmo where Ibrahimovic grew up and honed his now world-famous skills.

According to Swedish Channel 5, via Eurosport, the always modest Zlatan came up with the idea all by himself and pitched the movie like so: "It is my personal look back over the 50 more or less improbable goals I made in the Swedish national football team, and thus struck the 82 year old målrekordet (national record). I am very proud of my record in the national team and I hope that this documentary can show all you young people who are struggling to achieve their goals, anything is possible."

All we know is that if it is half as entertaining as his critically acclaimed autobiography, I Am Zlatan, then it is sure to be highly entertaining.
