McKayla Maroney publicly opens up about being one of Larry Nassar's victims

McKayla Maroney, a member of the Fierce Five that won gold in 2012 and a 2x vaulting world champion, opened up about her experience with former USA gymnastics team doctor of 20+ years, Larry Nassar. McKayla was one of the 140+ victims that sued Larry Nassar for sexual assault under the guise of treatment and USA gymnastics for failure to report sexual assault to the authorities. She is now going public with her story. In 2016, she opened up in an interview with gymcastic about dealing with depression, injuries, and her coaches, Artur Akopyan and Galina Marinova. Another gymnast coached by them, Mattie Larson, was also one of Nassar's public victims. Along with Nassar and USA Gymnastics, she also named the Karoylis, Akopyan, and Marinova in her lawsuit.

:(((( She's been through so much with her personal coaches being terrible about food & injuries, that terrible hacker leaking her nudes when she was underage, and being a victim of Nassar

Hollywood’s Other ‘Open Secret’ Besides Harvey Weinstein: Preying on Young



Ira Madison of The Daily Beast writes this article about Hollywood's other secret

-Addresses Corey Feldman's remarks about Hollywood and child abuse in light of Harvey Weinstein
-How Corey can't name the creeps/abusers b/c of state of limitations in California
-NDA's and the stigma attached with going forward leads many in fear to not come out
-Hollywood is an easy place for them to be in close proximity with young children
-An Open Secret documentary exposed a lot of pos in Hollywood and one of the victims in the film was abused allegedly by Bryan Singer, but his case dismissed but still the stories don't lie

Evan Rachel Wood is also not believing it either


-Basically with Noah Galvin (actor) speaking out about Bryan Singer's alleged behavior and with Harvey's downfall, the dominoes are falling to see who's next. Although what he said in the interview was problematic, it did speak of how Bryan's behavior isn't an open secret to those in Hollywood. Also Victor Salva needs to go and many more will in the wake of Weinstein.
-Also this is my first post, so it still might be a bit wonky so please forgive me.

The Chainsmokers Are Tommy Hilfiger Brand Ambassadors: "We Try to Learn from Our Mistakes"



• “We party a lot, we have a ton of friends, we travel all over, and write songs about hanging out,” says Taggart, the more talkative of the two [shocking.gif]. “And it strikes a chord with people.”

• Their bio, which has been removed from their official website, called out their “17.34 combined inches” and has raised a few eyebrows.

• “For 30 years no one cared what we had to say, then one morning we wake up, and they do—it’s weird. But I like to think we’re good guys, and we try to learn from our mistakes.”

• “I had a gothic phase, a white-boy rapper, an emo kid. These days we like to wear more formal clothes but in a laid-back way, like dress pants with a band tee and a cool canvas shoe," says Taggart.

• For some reason this happened: The Chainsmokers Are Tommy Hilfiger Brand Ambassadors.

Park Chan-wook, the man who put Korean cinema on the map



* Park values collaboration and says that he realized early on that "actors are not puppets."

* He is an autodidact by necessity, because Korea in the 80s only had a few film schools and no serious movie culture. Park on his lack of cinematic education: "When you say you go to a film school in America or France, you would probably go to a lecture where they teach you about German Expressionism and show you what these German Expressionist films are. But in Korea there was no systematic education I could be exposed to. It was sporadic, haphazard. And maybe that’s why my films have ended up in this strange form, where it feels like it’s a mishmash of everything."

* Park says that coming of age in Seoul under the "often-brutal" rule of the dictator Chun Doo-hwan shaped his imagination.

* The Handmaiden was such a success in Korea that Yongsan CGV, a large multiplex at a popular Seoul mall, has dedicated a theater in Park's honor.

* The most important takeaway from the article: "He delights in setting out bowls of food and water in his garage for the neighborhood’s stray cats... Park stands at the back of the dining room, gazing out the window with such fondness and focus that I want to know what he’s looking at. Nine cats are arranged on the deck, including a mother cat and her nursing kittens. When we’re done talking, Park wanders over to the window again. It’s really this, isn’t it, I think. Mr. Vengeance loves cats."

Thor Ragnarok / Taika Waititi Post!



- Taika choice of "Immigrant Song" by Led Zeplin reminded the producers of his first pitch to direct Ragnarok
- Kevin Feige states:

"Filmmakers sometimes will say, using clips of other movies, ‘Here’s what I have in mind.’ And sometimes they’re not good. Most of the times, they’re okay. His was amazing, and was scored to that Led Zeppelin song. So from the beginning, that song kind of defined what Taika was going to do with this. That it’s in the trailer, that it’s in the film – all from that first meeting, and from one of his first instincts of this movie, is very impressive.”

Former real housewife Joanna Krupa under fire for exercise comments

Former Real Housewife of Miami, Joanna Krupa was recently on the active magazine and posted it on her IG with the following long ass comment

joannakrupa: There is absolutely no excuse in not staying fit and healthy at any age! Motivation and drive is the key. Over the years during my career I heard so many comments ... " she probably starves herself etc" I have always eaten anything I wanted. I maintain a diet of 2000 calories a day no matter if I workout that day or not. I make sure to workout 2-5 times a week depending on my schedule . I don't get lazy even when tired after work or on a vacation ....I find time to be active. It's called being ambitious and dedicated. It's a choice. For those that don't follow that please don't judge those that choose to be fit. #joannakrupa for #beactive by @chodakowskaewa hair @ewa_pieczarka makeup @malgorzata_urbanska_mua . If u love yourself you will find the determination within yourself to get off the sofa and make a change in your life and not judge others that do.

tldr: no excuse for you not to work out. stop being lazy and get off of ONTD

I don't have a soundbite for you because I have learned..I am not a child..and I have learned that when I have spoken in anger, I usually regret the way which I express myself. So I've been waiting to feel less angry, and when I am ready, I'll say what I have to say."

GRRM Pays Tribute to the Passing of Roy Dotrice, Actor and Audiobook Narrator of the ASOIAF Series



The world became a little poorer this week. Roy Dotrice has died. He was ninety-four.

Roy first took up acting in a German prisoner of war camp during World War II, and went on to become one of the giants of British stage and screen, decorated by the Queen. He set a record for his one-man play BRIEF LIVES, and performed the key role of Mozart's father in the film of AMADEUS, among a hundred other credits. He was a supremely gifted actor.

He was also my friend. He lived in the United Kingdom and I lived in New Mexico, so we did not see each other often, but whenever we did get together, it was a delight. I will always treasure the memory of the dinner I shared with Roy and his wife Kay (who passed away a few years ago) at his club, the Garrick, a centuries-old haunt of the legends of the British stage. That was a truly amazing evening. The last time I saw Roy was in Los Angeles, however, at the party his daughter threw him on the occasion of his 90th birthday.

New Season Intro for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend



In a room comprised entirely of green screen, Rachel Bloom stands on a platform, her blue gown and long dark wig blowing in fan-created wind. She's performing a group number with...well, no one. A monitor for the crew reveals she's acting opposite herself, dressed as an Eminem-style rapper. Famed music video director (and No. 1 Taylor Swift supporter) Joseph Kahn watches the take and yells cut. Her hand movement is too similar to the Carrie Underwood-esque country artist she performed as the day before. Let's try it again.

Wendy Williams Goes In On Joanna Krupa

Following her remarks on exercise and being fit, Wendy Williams addressed some hot topics and responded to Joanna Krupa (who said there's no excuse not to exercise etc.)


At 11:10
- On Krupa, Wendy says "Stop judging people's lifestyles just because you work out all the time. You're 38 years old, you've never had children, you don't have a man right now,  [maybe you'll understand?] when you get a full life that might include something other than just you, I realize single people can have a full life, but she's judging so she's different."
- Says she's a beautiful girl but tells her to stop judging the rest of us.
- She also talked about Azalea Banks, says if RZA had seen someone spit in her face he'd have either left with her or said something?
- Tells jason derulo to get better security and to get employee who was asleep during time of the roberry (of his house) under a lie detector test
