RHOBH Recap: Come On, Eileen


As President of the Real Housewives Institute, it is my obligation to admit when I am wrong, and now I must issue an apology to Eileen, because not only is she pretty cool and not boring, she actually has made me like her. I would eat my words, but no one on this show ever seems to eat anything other than pancakes covered in apples and whipped cream, so why should anyone start now?

Watching Eileen last night was sort of like watching one single person dropped off in a tribe of gorillas that know sign language. It’s like Eileen is one of those Scotsman with an accent that is so thick, all the other women know that she’s speaking the same language, but you just can’t figure out a word she says.

Eileen proved herself to be the only sane person on this whole damn show. When she comes down in the morning the day after everyone got in a fight with Brandi and two days after Kim Richards called her a beast and Lisar threw a wine glass, everyone is about to go off shopping and Eileen had to be all like, “You people are crazy. I’m going to a museum.”

Akira: live action remake stalls again



A live-action adaptation of Katsuhiro Otomo's classic 'Akira' have planned by Warner Bros for many years but is still a no-go. Back in 2012, it was rumored that Garrett Hedlund will be casted with Jaume Collet-Serra (of Unknown, Run All Night) to direct.

Collet-Serra later rejoined Akira and with their budget issues being sorted in August 2013, the movie seemed to be on the right path. However, 18 months on, there's still no progress and Collet-Serra basically said 'There's nothing.' He's currently involved with two movies back-to-back starring Liam Neeson and said that he's not planning for a new movie for the next few months.

When asked whether the movie is still going to happen, "It's a Warner Bros question."

According to Page Six, Alexander Skarsgård and Alexa Chung were "very cozily holding hands" at Caviar Kaspia in Paris on Tuesday night.

The new couple was dining with a group of friends including Poppy Delevingne and Derek Blasberg.

Earlier that day, the pair were photographed arriving at Gare du Nord on a Eurostar train from London.

Last month, they were seen at a Father John Misty show in New York, and "eating avocado toast and rubbing each other's lower backs" over breakfast the next morning.

Robert Downey Jr. Presents Real Bionic 'Iron Man' Arm to Young Fan



-- Seven-year-old Alex was born with a partially developed right arm.

-- Albert Manero, founder of the non-profit Limbitless Solutions (which makes low-cost 3D-printed bionic limbs for children), has been working with the Microsoft OneNote Collective Project to develop an arm for him.

-- Since Alex is a big superhero fan, they modeled the arm after Iron Man's famous suit and arranged for Robert Downey Jr. (posing as Tony Stark) to present it to him.

-- The arm cost less than $350 in materials, much cheaper than the $40,000 price tag of some prosthetics. (Alex's bionic arm was donated for free, though.)

-- Check out Limbitless Solutions' website to learn more about this project and get involved.

Anna Duggar is offended that NYC public schools will start observing Muslim holidays

News: Starting this year, New York City schools will observe two Muslim holidays: Eid al-Fitr (the end of Ramadan, which will fall in July this year) and Eid al-Adha (the Festival of Sacrifice on Sept. 24). On those days, there will be no classes.

Some people aren't so happy about NYC's continued descent into hellfire, reprobation, and damnation. Anna Duggar is one of them, as she retweeted the following:



Unfortunately for the Duggars, there is no public holiday that celebrates trying to hit cats with a sled.

Jana Duggar Wants Out



According to a new report from OK! Magazine, 25-year-old Jana Duggar is sick and tired of being an unpaid babysitter and wants to leave her family's compound and pursue higher education. She reportedly has no interest in getting married and having a billion babies.

“This is probably the first time Jana has really stuck up for herself,” an insider told OK! Magazine. “Jana told her parents that she was looking at Christian colleges and would be applying soon.”

Jim Boob is allegedly trying to talk his eldest J'slave out of going to college (womenfolk belong in the home!), but Jana is insistent on getting the hell out of Dodge.

I really hope this is true. Run, girl, run! Hope she picks an accredited school.

Future Academy winner and goalkeeper plays dead to avoid red card in Copa Libertadores™ match

Barcelona de Guayaquil's goalkeeper, Máximo Banguera left his area to cut the colombian attacker while committing a fault. Then, he immediately drops to the floor pretending to be unconscious. He did it for a minute, then the doctor gets into the field to assist him and when he finally "recovers" he's expelled by the referee.

The colombian football team, Atlético Nacional ended up winning the match 2-1 but who's the real winner here? #givemáximoanoscar tbh!

Iggy talks about postponed tour



"It is bumped back because I am a psychopath. It's my first arena tour so it's a big undertaking and I'm doing a lot of the creative direction, which I do for everything, all my videos--Trouble that we just talked about I directed--so it's tough when it's your first time working on an arena situation. For me getting together production and we're doing a custom stage and custom build, and this all really boring kind of stuff I guess for people to hear talk about, but when you're building a stage and things like that, you do it about six months in advance. My tour would've been April, we have not started building. That is not six months, that is very tight, and so to get this stage kind of done in time I would be making a lot of sacrifices and cuts and changes and compromises would have to be made to get this thing done in time. So I really considered what do I want to do: keep and honor the tickets and this date for fans but not the show I'd envisioned or kind of promised them, a lesser version of it with maybe not so many people like jumping out of the ceilings and flying all over the place, or do I want to move it and have the absolute best show, the show that I envisioned, and obviously I've chosen to move it."

“When you’re truly in love, for me, it’s...you’re my lighthouse! You’re somebody who holds me high, keeps me safe, you’ve got my f—kin’ back,” she explained. “You also love me whole, wild, and free. You let me do me, and I’m gonna let you do you! And I’ll be the home that you return to.”

Univision fires show host for calling Michelle Obama "an ape" on air


Rodner Figueroa, who is a "fashion critic" in the show "El Gordo y La Flaca" was talking about artist Paolo Ballesteros, who transforms his face into several female celebrities using only makeup. When talking about his Michelle Obama transformation, Figueroa said "Look, now you know Michelle Obama looks from the cast of Planet of the Apes!" .

After his co-hosts were left speechless, he kept his word vomit coming in saying "but it's true, it's true!" and started laughing. One of his co-hosts, Raul De Molina said he disagreed because he thought Obama was very attractive, to which Figueroa replied "Do you even remember the movie? Raul, what's the matter?"

He now went to his personal blog/site to "apologize" with your typical "don't call me a racist that's harmful!!! It was a joke!! I was misunderstood!!"

Katy Perry Does Not Have ‘Teenage Dreams’ of Weed Anymore


Katy Perry is currently in the wonderous city of Amsterdam for her Prismatic World Tour, but says she won't be taking any part in most of the activities that the city is famous for. "I'm going to go to the red light district tonight, actually, but I'll just say this: the weed doesn't agree with me," She revealed on a radio show on Wednesday. "I turn into more of a weirdo than I actually am!"

She also believes there is a certain point in everyone's lives where they leave "partying" behind. “I don’t even really do cocktails anymore. There is a certain point in your life where you just turn to red wine, and that is kind of the point I have hit now. I love a nice Malbec.”

‘The Americans’ Q&A: Noah Emmerich Talks His Directorial Debut and Picking Philip’s Wig




On directing this particular episode of the season: The funny thing about a series is you have the schedule for shooting long before you have the actual content of what you’re shooting. We knew I’d be directing episode seven at the beginning of the season but it had yet to be written. It’s sort of a pot luck. It was the first episode back from Christmas break, which worked out well for me; I had the time over the break to prepare. When you get the script you hope it’s one you connect to and fits your sensibility. I got lucky, the script was phenomenal.

Harper Lee's Ability to Consent Under Investigation (NYT)

Investigators sent out to interview author of To Kill a Mockingbird and the forthcoming Go Set a Watchman




It is a short article so you should read the whole thing. My summary of pertinent facts in the article:

*People in town question her ability to consent, some arguing that "her mental health is too shaky". Others reporting that her short term memory is impaired.

*A vulnerable adult report was filed anonymously by a doctor who knows her but isn't based on his own assessment; it's based on what others told him. The health department (responsible for vulnerable adult reports) questioned her, her assisted living facility staff, and friends last month. Supposedly (anonymous source) said she was able to answer just fine.

Get Secondhand Embarrassment From Jaime King's Social Media Misunderstanding (/Meltdown)

jaime

Ooh wee, Jaime King will go off on a fool for using the word "ho" around her, even if they are saying "hey ho," which is British slang for "oh well."

All of these Instagram posts are now deleted (thank goodness--soo awkward!), but the source has the text. Jaime uploaded a photo of herself surrounded by Fiji water bottles to remind pregnant women to stay hydrated (*cough*probably an ad she was paid to do).  The world's most anti-FIJI Water person ever left a comment ranting against corporate bullshit and Jaime thought they were calling her a ho because they said "hey ho."

Jaime responded with the following:

"Dear Jessica- an open letter to your open assault. Apparently, I am a ho. Oppression is not at my doorstep according to this you. (Ironically, I grew up with my father taking care of the tenements and section 8 housing, collecting quarters out of washing machines and cleaning broken toilets) there are many forms of oppression..."
