Undercover Boss offers one employee breast implants and fires another for not wearing a bikini on TV

The ending of an episode of Undercover Boss is usually full of swelling music, sob stories and a ton of emotional manipulation as more often than not lives are changed. The most recent episode of the reality series proved to be a little different and sent Twitter users into a frenzy.

The series, which used to feature companies like 7-Eleven, DirecTV, Subway, MGM Grand and even the Chicago Cubs, recently did an episode about Bikinis Sports Bar & Grill. Never heard of it? It's probably because all eight restaurants - scratch that, breastaurants (a term the owner had copyrighted) - are located in Texas.

During the episode a waitress named Grace expressed that she would like to have breast implants and during the end of the episode, which in the past has had bosses provide college educations to their employee's children, pay off medical bills and even make an hourly employee a business partner, Bikinis Sports Bar & Grill CEO Doug Guller offered Grace breast implants if she steps up her game in the next six months.


In the same episode Guller fired another employee in part because she was uncomfortable with wearing wearing a bikini top on screen. While she had no issue with wearing her uniform to work on a daily basis she was apparently uneasy with appearing in it on national television, which Guller seemed to find unacceptable.

Since airing yesterday a Facebook group against the company formed as well as a petition on Change.org to get CBS to apologize for the episode.

7 Shocking Movie Moments of 2014

WARNING: There will be NUMEROUS spoilers for 6 other 2014 FILMS under the cut. This one is outside of the cut because everyone knows it.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Hail Hydra

c4a2787db7d686e1076e84683b1a8181
The moment when the audience finds out that Hydra has infiltrated SHIELD is not only a shocking one, but changes everything about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, most likely leading to Age of Ultron and Civil War. This deviation from comic canon allowed the Russos to craft one of Marvel's best movies, and focus on powerful themes about morality, security, and the police state. It also spawned a meme.



Another warning: The will be MAJOR spoilers for the Lego Movie, Gone Girl, Snowpiercer, Interstellar, Jay Nice Cat Moking Part 1, Interstellar, and Birdman. Don't read if you don't want to be spoiled.

ONTD, what were your favorite films/moments in film of 2014?

Watch Joy-Anna... yes you read that right Joy-Anna, Duggar lift 145lbs while wearing a skirt

Jessa Duggar (actually Seewald now but whatever) recently went on Instgram to proudly post a picture of her 17 year old sister Joy-Anna parallel squatting 145 lbs. Joy-Anna does this while wearing a skirt with sweatpants underneath because apparently even while exercising the Duggar girls must always wear skirts.

In other news rumors are spreading that Jessa, who got married on November 1st, is already pregnant. Several sources, including The Examiner are speculating this as she's recently started posting videos of fast food onto social media, she hasn't posted any pictures of herself that show her body in several weeks, and of course because she's a Duggar and her older sister Jill who was married in mid-June is due in March.

Did Vin Diesel just confirme that he's an Inhuman?

Yesterday, Vin Diesel used the above picture as his cover image on Facebook, starting rumors once again that he will play another character on the MCU: Black Bolt.

This isn't the first time he has teased his fans about the potential role, having posted a comment on his Facebook page last August stating that Marvel thought he was an inhuman, months before an official annoucement about an “Inhumans” film was made.

He changed his cover image hours later, but that didn't stop the speculation. If this turns out to be true, then he clearly isn't just Groot.

Blind items are probably all fake but at least these are about nice things



1. This singer is A list. Usually is A+ and probably will be again next month. Although she made a lot of money last year, her giving was still pretty huge. She gave $2M to four different missions ($500K each) who provide health services to people in Central American countries. Apparently she did the same thing last year helping organizations in Africa. source

2. This A+ list singer had another great year and ended it on a kindness which is really nice. She gave each of her employees a Christmas bonus which matched their entire annual salary.
source

3. This B- list foreign born actor does a mix of television and movies and also other things. He is extremely versatile although his Golden Globe nomination/win did come from television. He has also been very upfront about his mental illness and makes it a point to respond by phone and e-mail to any person who writes him and is having their own issues with mental illness. The guy spends a ton of time helping others.
source

4. This foreign born singer with the magical voice and a very good 2014 made sure that at each of his tour stops this year that sick kids in the hospital also had a better year. He spends time at a children's hospital in every city he plays.
source

my guesses:
1. Katy Perry
2. T Swift or Beyoncé
3. Sounds like Hugh Laurie or Stephen Fry but smh @ either of them being B-list
4. Ed Sheeran

Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: You Were an Hour Late



This week on RHOA:

-Claudia was visited by her mom and grandma. Grandma was HILARIOUS and clearly auditioning for her spinoff with Aunt Bertha and Aunt Nora; "Golden Gurls - Atlanta."
-Kenya looked at office space (lord knows what for) and continued to thirst over BobRoger/MichaelJohn whatever his name is. Kenya acts like she's shading Demetria but really she's just mad that Roger was willing to claim Demetria, meanwhile the only man claiming her is her unpaid intern Brandon.
-Nene, Porsha, Kenya, and Cynthia met up to quash their beef. Nene continued to be rude and nothing of substance was accomplished.
-Ayden continued to be the saving grace of Phaedra's scenes.


REALITY TEA

Tune in next week to see Peter blow what's left of Cynthia's money.

For the 5 of you that watched: The Comeback Se(ries?)ason Finale + Lisa Kudrow Shades Film



Last night HBO aired the Season 2 finale of The Comeback and viewers were surprised when Valerie chose to leave the Emmy's as she rushed to her dear friend Mickey's side in the hospital. Kristin Dos Santos from E! spoke to Lisa after viewing the finale.

Dos Santos: Lisa, I hope you feel very proud. The finale was amazing and I had such an emotional reaction to it. I cried off all my makeup when I watched it.

"Aww, thank you. Me too! I know! And I shot it! The very end, once that music starts. I thought I'm never going to stop crying, I don't know what I'm ever going to do. It was a release."

Dos Santos: There are some subtle and not so subtle messages throughout this season about how Hollywood treats women, and how they are treated as either whores or furniture. Do you think all that has gotten better?

"In TV, definitely. There have always been roles for women in TV. And women who are the leads of shows. Always. In TV."


On the scenes with Kellan Lutz:

"It was so uncomfortable to watch, right?! And how do you not like her for saying, ‘Well, I'm married'?"

Cetacean experts concerned about orca star of "Blackfish"


Orca experts are concerned about the worrying condition of Tilikum, the infamous killer whale who was responsible for the 2012 death of trainer Dawn Brancheau at Sea World Orlando. He has been spending the majority of his time "logging" or floating at the surface of the water, and experts are concerned that, desspite of a steady diet of fish, Tilikum may be suffering from "peanut head," caused by loss of blubber. It can be a sign of severe weight loss to the point of starvation.

  • Tilikum lives in a back pool at Sea World Orlando with his grandson, 9-year-old Trua, secluded away from the other whales, in particular the dominant females. Tilikum spends most of the day floating lethargically at or near the surface of his tank.

  • Tilikum and Trua are sometimes brought out for the big splash segment of Sea World's One Ocean show. During a show in December 2014, as seen in the video below, Tilikum ignored his cues and swam over to a gate near the show pool where he bobbed in the water for several minutes, occasionally calling to another whale on the other side (his granddaughter Nalani)

  • Tilikum did not participate in an afternoon show the same day, continuing to float listlessly in the back pool. His dorsal fin is so flopped over that it almost makes his body look like a straight line down his back.

    Chris Evans Surprises Young Fan Battling Cancer In Boston



    Kenny Botting is a young nine-year old fighting a brain tumor and recently had surgery in September. For the past three weeks he has been staying at Christopher's Haven, a place that provides a home away from home for kids with cancer. His favorite superhero is Captain America and Chris Evans, who also helps out the charity Christopher's Haven, drops by at the apartment for a surprise visit. He took pictures with Kenny, as well as give him gifts and autographs and then proceeded to have fun with him by having a tour of the apartment building pillow forts, and to top it all off Kenny lives the dream of many Chris Evans' fans: he ties him to a chair.

    “It’s their strength that gives me strength. No matter what hurdles are in my life it’s nothing compared to what these families go through, so any way I can bring a smile it’s worth it,” Chris Evans said.

    Kenny could not stop smiling. “I am more than happy. I just want to say thank thanks for coming,” Botting said.

    Pakistani officials furious over ‘Homeland’



    Homeland continues being its messy trainwreck self as Pakistani officials, according to the New York Post, slam the show for portraying their country as 'an ugly, ignorant, terror-plagued “hellhole.”'

    They also brought their complaints against the show's producers which ultimately fell on deaf ears.

    One source is reported as saying: “Islamabad is a quiet, picturesque city with beautiful mountains and lush greenery... In ‘Homeland,’ it’s portrayed as a grimy hellhole and war zone where shootouts and bombs go off with dead bodies scattered around. Nothing is further from the truth.”

    The show's Islamabad scenes were actually filmed in Cape Town, South Africa.

    Pakistani sources also complained that the languages used on the show were largely inaccurate, and criticised the characters' English which was too American, and the Urdu, which was not spoken in the local accent and at times used words which were out of place or unnecessary.

    Their biggest and most serious complaint was that Homeland portrayed Pakistan as an undemocratic country which sided with terrorists.

    “Repeated insinuations that an intelligence agency of Pakistan is complicit in protecting the terrorists at the expense of innocent Pakistani civilians is not only absurd but also an insult to the ultimate sacrifices of the thousands of Pakistani security personnel in the war against terrorism [.....] “ ‘Homeland’ makes it seem that Pakistan has contempt for Americans and its values and principles. That is not true.” a source said.

    Buzzfeed’s stats where primetime broadcast shows for 2014 are concerned:

    * Of the 62 main/recurring LGBT characters, 56% were men and 47% were gay white men.

    * LGBT characters on television skew richer than LGBT Americans IRL.
    * Buzzfeed says that there were no transgender characters on broadcast television in 2014. (Isn’t Unique on Glee transgender? idr if she was on any 2014 episodes.)

    During the making of the video "I Fall" by rock band Precious Child, Nina Burns from America's Next Top Model (cycle 20) fell gravely ill and contracted pneumonia due to swimming in cold water for several hours during the shoot. In the video, Burns artfully portrays the role of a woman bent on self destruction. Unfortunately and ironically, her lungs ended up a little worse for the wear because of the shoot.
