"Politics aside, I’m saddened that these comments still exist in our society at all. When I heard the comments yesterday, it was disappointing to hear such objectification of women. The conversation needs to change because no female, no person, should be the subject of such crass comments, whether or not cameras are rolling. Everyone deserves respect no matter the setting or gender. As a woman who has worked very hard to establish her career, and as a mom, I feel I must speak out with the hope that as a society we will always strive to be better."
Beyoncé quoted Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's TED Talk during 'Flawless', but the Nigerian writer doesn't really agree with the Bey's style of feminism.
In a recent interview Adichie said her work was already known and is not into the idea that she should be thankful to the singer, but notes that "with this song, she has reached many people who would otherwise probably never have heard the word feminism, let alone gone out and buy my essay."
Her type of feminism is not the same as Beyoncé's, which she says gives 'a lot of space to the necessity of men', and that women are 'conditioned to relate everything to men'.
what's your type of feminism, ontd?
NEW: Burnett “is pro-Trump and has made clear to his teams that he will sue anyone who leaks" https://t.co/XoT6VecySi— Ben Smith (@BuzzFeedBen) October 9, 2016
Mark Burnett, evangelical Christian and Trump supporter, who produces The Apprentice, The Voice, Survivor, and Shark Tank, among other shows, is threatening to sue any former staffer of The Apprentice who leaks footage of Trump being a sleazebag. According to a couple individuals previously affiliated with The Apprentice, there is damaging b-roll of Trump, but a non-disclosure agreement in their contracts calls for a $5 million penalty for anyone who leaks.
I don't have the tapes. I've signed a Burnett contract & know leak fee is 5 mill. Hearing from producers/crew N word is the "much worse".— Chris Nee (@chrisdocnee) October 9, 2016
Mark Burnett was also the producer of Sarah Palin's Alaska and once spoke of how he hoped to do a reality show with Vladimir Putin.

This teaser was released back in July but for those of you who have been dreaming about a darkier and edgier Archie that looks like it's taking place in Twin Peaks, better late than never!
A few months ago, a longer first look promo leaked, but it was quickly taken down. I don't think this one has posted.
In other Archie news, the CW's Riverdale will get its own comic series as well.
The Washington Nationals just edged out the Dodgers in the redo of yesterday's "rain" delayed game. This brings the Walgreens even 1-1 with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Corey Seager's homerun wasn't enough to overcome the damage done by Walgreens offense, led by Jose Lobaton hitting the game-winning homer.

2005-2008: Cheating on Michael Angarano with Robert Pattinson
Kristen met Michael on the set of Speak when she was 15 and he was 17. That all changed in 2007, when she met Pattinson while filming Twilight. Pattinson was supposedly seeing Nikki Reed, Kristen's best friend. Kristen is said to have cheated on Angarano, and it's unclear whether Pattinson cheated on Reed or dumped her beforehand.
