The Savagely Clever Feminist Behind UnREAL talks about her show and The Bachelor

-Her name is Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, she was a producer on The Bachelor
-Her job was to get contestants to “open up, and to give them terrible advice, and to deprive them of sleep.” She describes it now as “complicated manipulation through friendship.”
-She would cry on cue to make contestants open up
-The day a contestant was about to go home, she would tell them that the Bachelor would pick them
-Shapiro made season 2 of UnReal about a black bachelor because The Bachelor never had one, and she also put a Black Lives Matter activist on the show and a super-racist white girl
-Shapiro didn't want Jeremy to be Rachel's 'Mr.Big' and she wanted him to be a 1 season character, but the network executives said they wanted him in season 2 so she had to write him a story
-Shapiro's senior project was a film about “a gay man and a fag hag” who get kidnapped by a terrorist during a shopping trip. “The professor hated it,” she says. “It was too narrative.”
-Chris Harrison, the host of the Bachelor thinks that Unreal is terrible
-Shapiro fought that most of the directors of the show are women
-She says that the one of the themes this season is 'women acting like men'
-“Integrating Jeremy was a small price to pay for having a black bachelor and letting Quinn and Rachel go all the way to darkness,” Shapiro said.

Mali Music Uses Mass Murder to Push His Religious Agenda

His defenders, like the one who posted the video, are saying he did not explicitly say the Orlando victims are going to hell. Which is true. But I think it's implied. Too many pastors preach that the LGBTQ community are hell bound sinners for me to believe that wasn't what he meant. On top of that, his tone was extremely callous.

If you're wondering who he is, Mali Music is a gospel-to-R&B singer who collaborated once with noted whisper vocalist Jhené Aiko and performed on the American Idol stage at Jennifer Lopez's request. Here's hoping this ends his career.

Posting b/c I've gone from sad to mad, and it's important to call out homophobia when you see it.


Sean Penn wanted to name his son "Steak" because he loves it so much

Actor Hopper Jack Penn explained how Sean Penn and Robin Wright came up with his name: "It has to do with Dennis Hopper; my dad was friendly with him and idolized him. My dad wanted to name me Steak, the food, because he loves it so much. But my mom was never going to go for it. What they told me is that I hopped in her stomach, I didn't kick, so they went with that."

Eliza & Alexander Hamilton

UPDATE: Civil Rights Attorney Backtracks re: Hamilton Casting Discrimination

Natalie Kim of Nerds of Color interviewed Randolph M. McLaughlin, the civil rights attorney who criticised Hamilton for its discriminatory casting calls.

Some tidbits:

- The casting call was given to him by a reporter who asked him to comment.

- Puts a lot of emphasis on the fact that this is a problem in the entire industry, usually with the roles reversed (usually caucasian actors are specified)

- "
I think they made a mistake by not putting on the ad what they needed to put on — a disclaimer clause that Actors Equity required them to do and they should’ve done."

- Interviewer: Do you think your words were twisted?
McLaughlin: I think they were taken way out of context. One of the problems with the proverbial sound bite is that you get a sound bite. It’s not a problem capable of a 30 second sound bite. It’s a problem that’s institutional in the industry. People of color don’t control the industry or casting calls, except Hamilton.

- Sets the record straight about his views - notes that most of his career has been spent suing employers for discriminating against people of color, or going after police departments for killing African Americans and Latinos, or just general misconduct.

K-FLOP News : JYJ’s Park Yoochun Charges Dropped, Suspected Payoff Deal

Breaking: Police Confirm Sexual Assault Charges Against Park Yoochun Have Been Dropped

Yesterday, June 14 KST, a report from local news outlet Sports Donga claimed that Ms. Lee, the woman who had filed sexual assault charges against Park Yoochun, withdrew her charges that day. Initially, the Seoul Gangnam Police Station said Ms. Lee had not dropped the charges, but today, June 15 KST, it confirms that she has.

Sources from the Youth and Women criminal investigation section told several news outlets that Ms. Lee personally cancelled the charges of sexual assault today, testifying that the sexual relations were not forced. The sources added that because they had been investigating the case as a sexual assault, with Ms. Lee dropping it, they will be in discussions on how to proceed now with the case.

In response to this new development, reps from C-JeS Entertainment have stated in interviews that it has not received any official notification about the cancellation. It had previously stated in its first and second official statements, in response to the first report about the charges being filed and a second saying the charges have reportedly been dropped, that it had not received any official notifications regarding either from the police.

C-JeS Entertainment has said it will release another official statement soon.

Maisie Williams Designs a GoT Shirt for Charity

Her new t-shirt reads "Making a list and checking it twice", a play on her on-screen character's famous list (as Game of Thrones fans all well know).

Maisie's t-shirt is part of a collaboration between Represent and The Dolphin Project. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to The Dolphin Project, raising awareness for the captivity of dolphins and their treatment in captivity. While you may not be that familiar with the charity, you may remember the name from last year, when the Game of Thrones star jumped out of a plane to raise funds for them.


Everyone, bless the mods for this tag.

Lupita Nyong'o is allegedly pissing off fans, producers, and investors of her Broadway show

Page Six reports that Lupita Nyong'o has missed multiple performances of "Eclipsed", the Broadway show she's currently on, and asked to have Wednesdays off, angering producers, investors, and fans of the play.

According to a source, “Wednesdays are her days off, but there was never an announcement, so fans are pissed when they come to the show and she’s not there.” The source claims that Lupita has used excuses of "exhaustion" having a "sore toe" to miss out on performances.

Investors have allegedly been annoyed further by seeing photos of Lupita hanging out with ballet dancer Misty Copeland on her days off. “They were banking on her fame and have not seen a return. The most disrespectful thing is taking off every Wednesday while being seen hanging out with Misty. If you’re too tired to work, stay in bed.”

A source close to Lupita responded to these claims by saying that the actress' contract only requires her to perform in seven shows per week. “She’s maybe missed a show or two because she was sick and lost her voice, but she was never expected to appear in Wednesday-evening shows. This is her passion project that she is dedicated to and proud of.”

Conan addresses Orlando shooting, speaks out against assault rifles

"I have really tried very hard over the years not to bore you with what I think. However I am a father of two, I like to believe I have a shred of common sense, and I simply do not understand why anybody in this country is allowed to purchase and own a semi-automatic assault rifle. It makes no sense to me. These are weapons of war and they have no place in civilian life."

Anderson Cooper Takes On Homophobic FL AG Pam Bondi

Anderson Cooper had Florida's Attorney General, Pam Bondi, on to discuss the possibility that people may use the tragedy in Orlando to set up fake funding sites. The interview quickly turned to Pam Bondi's hypocrisy, as she has fought strongly against the rights of LGBTQ people in Florida.

Pam Bondi tried to point out that she is a champion of LGBTQ rights and even has a gay friend posted rainbow hands on her website. Multiple sites (Slate, Esquire, ThinkProgress) mention finding no evidence of said hands.

Since the interview, Anderson Cooper has provided receipts to show that, despite Pam Bondi's claims that the interview was only supposed to be about innocent people being scammed, she and her people only mentioned discussing that seconds before going on air and the purpose of the interview was open and had no specific topic.

Bondi also has made news in recent weeks after it came out that she declined to investigate Trump University after Donald Trump donated $25,000 to her.


Harry Styles as Mick Jagger?

- It's being rumored that Harry Styles will play Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger in a film.
- The movie will focus on the band's album Exile on Main Street.
- Mick was almost 30 during that era while Harry is just 22 but make-up and special effects can help Harry look older.
- Harry's name is being considered given his role in Dunkirk and his resemblance to Jagger was undeniable.


Hell Continues To Freeze Over: Bill O'Reilly Calls For Tighter Gun Control

- Of course, takes a shot at Dems for not doing enough to go after ISIS (rme).

- Also attacks "right wing responsibility" for allowing high powered weaponry into the hands of civilians.

- He states, "There is too much gun crime in the USA, and high-powered weaponry is too easy to get. That's the fact. So let's deal with it. We all have the right to bear arms, but we don't have the right to buy and maintain mortars. Even if you feel threatened by gangsters or a New World Order. No bazookas, no Sherman tanks, no hand grenades."

"That's because the Second Amendment clearly states the government has a right to regulate militias, made up of individuals. They have that right in the name of public safety. Therefore, Congress should debate what kind of weapons should be available for public sale. And the states, the individual states, should decide what kind of carry laws are good for their own people."


Maybe the tide is finally turning.
