Weekly People vs OJ Simpson Fact Check



-Clark and Darden did indeed escape to the Bay Area together for a weekend though it was just to get away rather than for a birthday. According to Darden's memoir, he wished her a goodnight at her hotel and that was that. No kissing. No bases of any kind.

-Cochran's ex-wife didn't come forward on some daytime talk show. Rather most of the press concerning the abuse of his first wife was covered by a LA Times profile and then a book that she wrote titled Life After Johnnie Cochran, Why I Left The Sweetest-Talking, Most Successful Black Lawyer in L.A.

-The idea to have Simpson wear the gloves didn't come from Shapiro sneakily trying them on in the courtroom but from the defense's previous access to the evidence. Bailey credits himself with the idea while Phil Vannatter has also been credited with it. But Bailey was the one to goad Darden into the idea.

-Kardashian and AC did search Simpson's garment bag thoroughly, and Shapiro had suggested that Kardashian should go down with Simpsons if they went the plea bargain path again.

-There's no record of Dershowitz faxing things to the Dream Team in the middle of the trial. And only Columbian "Necklaces" were brought up rather than "Neckties"

Someone Made a Movie about Erotic Fanfic Writers



SLASH is a coming-of-age comedy that follows introverted high school freshman Neil, an avid writer of slash fiction. Everything changes when he meets an older student named Julia, who pushes him to publish his own fan fic online. When the website’s moderator takes a special interest in Neil’s work, it opens up a whole new universe.

Neil writes slash fanfic for the fictional sci-fi franchise "Vanguard". He writes in notebooks and then becomes a laughing stock/case of parental concern when people discover tha badly written sex scenes he's writing.

From the kickstarter: "At its heart, this is the story of a young man struggling to understand his place in the world, both socially and sexually, and both the stories he writes and the community he finds through sharing his work are an important part of his journey.  It's a film that will connect with anyone who has ever felt like an outsider, or struggled to figure out where they fit in."

From the writer/director: "Initially, I didn’t fully understand what compelled fans to write “dirty” stories based on mainstream characters. But then I kept reading. And I began to read correspondences between authors in this surprisingly tight knit group. And it all started to click.

Sometimes in the most apparently debase or taboo lands, you find an understanding of human nature that's lacking in the sanitized mainstream. It’s something grossly misunderstood, a subject full of humor and pathos, and ultimately one that taps into a universal desire to be a part of something. That’s something I want to introduce evenhandedly to the world."


It premiered at SXSW and got a decent review from Variety. Features Michael Ian Black, Missi Pyle, Corey from Teen Wolf, Luschek from OitNB, and Hannah Marks of Awkward/Unnecessary Roughness/Weeds

Former Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle beat up in prison for being scum



Basically Jared Fogle, who is currently serving a 15 year sentence for child porn and having sex with underaged prostitutes, was jumped in the prison yard. His attacker Steven Nigg, a 60 year old inmate who is doing time for a weapons charge, started pummeling Fogle in the face. Fogle was left with a bloody nose, swollen face and scratches all over on his neck while Nigg had no injuries. Nigg allegedly attacked Fogle out of anger and disgust for his crimes and the overall amount of child sex predators that are in their low security prison. He was placed into solitary confinement for punishment. Nigg's family was apparently not surprised by the altercation as Nigg really hates child molesters. No special protection is being offered to Fogle whose earliest possible release date is July of 2029.

Nicki Minaj covers April issue of NYLON



A couple of quotes:

On her Kmart clothing brand
“I was embarrassed to wear low-priced things so it was important for me to make my fans feel like, ’You may not have all the money right now, but you better walk with your head held high and be confident, be proud of what you’re wearing, because you make the clothes.’”

On her relationship with Meek Mill
“I’m not engaged yet. He said that my third ring would be my engagement ring. But sometimes he calls me his fiancée, and I’m always trying to stop him, like, ‘Nope! I ain’t got that third ring yet!’ We’re just taking it one step at a time. And, you know, if that happens, if I get married, then I’ll have a child, and that’ll be fun, because I can’t wait to hold my baby. When he and I were just friends, he would always say, ‘You remind me of my mother, and I like that because you’re like a dude. You’re tough like a guy and you talk like a dude.’ So I always got the sense that me being tough and bossy was a turn-on for him. And it’s important for me to keep my voice. Being in a relationship shouldn’t mean that you lose your voice. Being in a relationship should mean that you’ve met a secure-enough man to allow you, in a sense, to remain a queen.”

TVLand Working on Heathers Comedic Anthology Series



-This single cam series will be a present day dark comedy

-The different twist is that girls who would've been  "outcasts" in the original movie are now the popular girls. Heather McNamara (originally played by Lisanne Falk) is a black lesbian; Heather Duke (Shannen Doherty) is a male who identifies as gender-queer whose real name is Heath; and Heather Chandler (Kim Walker) has a body like Martha Dumptruck. They're described as being popular but evil. (oh no)

-As an anthology it'll be a different group of Heathers every season I guess.

-Written by the guy that wrote Butter aka that movie where Jennifer Garner carves blocks of butter into sculptures.

-This will be the second attempt at trying to make a show of Heathers after a project with Bravo that would've been about the title characters' daughters fell through in 2013.
