Mary Berry to leave Great British Bake Off – but Paul Hollywood will stay

Following the move to Channel 4, Mary Berry is to leave The Great British Bake Off out of loyalty to the BBC:

Collapse )

Fellow judge Paul Hollywood is to stay on the show for another three seasons. In his statement he said GBBO has “been a huge part of my life in the past few years and I just couldn’t turn my back on all that – the bakers themselves, the bakes, the team that makes it, and of course the tent, the bunting, and who could forget … the squirrels”

Love Productions also released a statement: “Paul’s presence will ensure the culture of Bake Off continues in the tent as it makes its move to Channel 4. We want to reiterate to Bake Off fans, that the show they love will remain wholly familiar, and that Channel 4 is a great place to make our show. Bake Off will be produced by the same team, in the same tent, with the same recipe.”

Brownface Moana Costume pulled by Disney

  • Tattoos were removed from cultural context as well as, you know, putting on brown skin as a costume.

"The team behind Moana has taken great care to respect the cultures of the Pacific Islands that inspired the film, and we regret that the Maui costume has offended some," the company said in a statement. "We sincerely apologize and are pulling the costume from our website and stores." (You yelled at us, we're sorry, please go see the movie).

Gerard Depardieu says France is "populated by imbeciles making wine and stinky cheese"

French actor Gerard Depardieu says France is becoming a giant Disneyland full of imbeciles making stinky cheese and wine for tourists.

He also says that Hollywood is ruining the global film industry by cramming films with special effects, only promoting the same 10 American actors, and not giving the film industries of other countries a chance to exist.

Depardieu praises Italy, saying it has not lost its culture and identity because it is a young country, while the rest of Europe becomes more fascist and anti-immigrant.

Burke Ramsey to sue CBS for implying he murdered his sister in their JonBenet special

According to multiple sources Burke Ramsey, the older brother of murdered JonBenet Ramsey, is furious over CBS recent two part special and is planning to sue the network. Over the course of the two episodes a team of forensic specialists re-examined the evidence from the 1996 case and proposed the theory that a then almost ten year old Burke accidentally killed six year old JonBenet after striking her with a flashlight (possibly after a squabble over some pineapple) and that Patsy and John Ramsey staged the kidnapping out of fear of what would happen to Burke.

Burke's lawyer has claimed that these accusations will now affect his quality of life until the day that he dies.

"CBS doesn't have enough money to compensate this man for the permanent damage they have caused this man's reputation that he has to live with for the rest of his life," lawyer Lin Wood told E!. "When I am done with CBS, the verdict from the Hulk Hogan vs. Gawker case is going to look like peanuts."

He also claimed that the experts hired by CBS, who are stated to be the some top researches in their field, aren't credible (calling them "experts") and that the Boulder Police are essentially better and know the real evidence. He went on to say that he will be facing them in court of law like he did when Star Magazine previously accused Burke of murder 15 years ago.

The CBS special contained disclaimers that the special was highlighting possible scenarios and was not making out and out accusations. The network has also claimed that they "[stand] by the broadcast and will do so in court".

Other sources are claiming that if this goes to court it could essentially become the de facto murder trial.

-Angelina doesn't intend the custody arrangement to be permanent, just feels it's necessary right now
-and....this. "This comes down to the kind of disagreements that sometimes occur between teenage boys and their father. This is where this situation has spiraled from, and Angelina as a mother can be very protective."

Still have mixed feelings about this. I'm not at all crazy about the look for Pennywise or the screenwriter but I love this book. They're back to this being two parts (tentatively) and the first only focuses on the kids, their adult counterparts aren't featured at all.

Alexander Siddig is rightfully bitter with his experience working on Game of Thrones


-Alexander Siddig is sayinf that he really is not sure what happened in regards to his time on the show and why his character was killed if the way he was an the timing of it.

-Says that his original contract had him signed on for season 5 and 4 episodes of season 6. But then he got a call from showrunners D&D  and they said that they wanted to kill Doran off in Season 5 episode 10, but now they're going to do it in Season 6 episode 1 instead.

This made no sense because:

"But there was something wrong about that because I had been contracted for four episodes in the following season, so if they were going to kill me off at the end of the last season why would they contract me for those four episodes? Because it costs them money whether I do them or not, so it’s not great business sense to do it just in case".
Collapse )

so this basically confirms that after the season 5 dorne storyline was detested by both fans and critics, D&D just said "fuck it lets kill everyone lol". i'm glad alexader got $$$$ for 3 episodes that he didn't even end up doing though

Brad's side of the story

This is all from a stated "Pitt source"
-Pitt was drunk
-there was a fight between him and Angelina and one of the kids came between them
-"a parent-child argument which was not handled in the right way and escalated more than it should have"
-insists he did not hit the child
-he did put his hands on the child because they were nose to nose and it was spiraling out of control
-calls it "a fight in which Brad was somewhat inebriated got out of hand and reached a regrettable peak" before saying Angelina's "manipulating" the story to gain custody

I strongly encourage reading it, because the actual quotes basically admit to everything, then act like Angelina's a vindictive bitch for wanting physical custody

Conrad on how the LGBTQ community and people of color have towards him: "So appreciative and thankful that there is somebody that looks like them and has a sex the way they have sex," Ricamora said. "And people who are HIV-positive have reached out to me and said they were happy to be represented."

Conrad on his character Oliver 'dark side' this season and trying to continue to be a good person: "He's still trying to hold on to his innocence, honesty and sweetness."
