Freeform cancels Bella Thorne's show "Famous in Love", without telling her

Freeform has cancelled Bella Thorne's show Famous in Love after two season. Bella found out about the news from Twitter.
Created by Marlene King, Famous in Love saw an average college's girl journey as she is suddenly thrust into stardom.
Sources say that Bella Thorne and showrunner Marlene King are said to have clashed on multiple occasions, with the actress exhibiting what sources described as "diva-like behavior" on set.
Bella also refused to do Freeform-organized live-tweets during episodes.
Sources also say news of the cancellation was considered a relief for many members of the production.
The show was also expensive, and Freeform initially wanted to renew despite low ratings, and asked SVOD partner Hulu for larger financial contribution, but Hulu denied.

CELEBS REACT: Justice Anthony Kennedy Retires, Darkest Timeline Continues

Actor Jeffrey Wright

Because the Supreme Court hasn't broken our hearts enough this week, today Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he plans to retire from the Supreme Court, effective July 31. This gives Mango Unchained the ability to appoint a new Justice. While said Justice would need to be approved by a majority in the Senate, the Republicans currently control the Senate, so things don't look good for abortion rights, LGBTQ rights, union rights, etc.

anyone else two seconds away from a panic attack?

Bebe Rexha was upset G-Eazy didn't tell her about Britney Spears VMA Performance of Me Myself & I

• Princess of Pop Britney Spears and sleaze of Pop G-Eazy both performed their smash worldwide hit Make Me... (Chart) at the 2016 Video Music Awards. It marked Spears' first VMA performance since her 2007 VMA performance in Las Vegas that was panned by critics and nearly everyone alive.

• The two then transitioned into G-Eazy and Bebe Rexha's hit, Me, Myself, & I before going back and ending with Make Me... (Chart) (available on iTunes and all streaming services).

Bebe Rexha was in the audience at the 2016 VMA's and was not aware that the pair would be performing her hit with G-Eazy.

• Gerald Earl failed to tell her and according to Rexha: “I didn't know about the performance, I found out at the last minute. They were scared I wasn't going to clear it, which is bull... I was a little shocked by him because I thought he'd let me know. But then I got to meet Britney and take pictures with her. So it made everything way better. She's my idol, you know what I mean?”

• Cohen then asks what exactly upset Rexha about the performance: “I showed up at the awards and imagine you are part of a song - and I was just there in the audience and they didn't even let me know. And all I hear is, “woo oooh, it's just me...” and I just wished I would have known out of respect from G. But then I got a picture with Britney so I was happy. Cause she's Queen.”

The good sis Bebe Rexha cried after winning two Radio Disney Music Awards

Bebe Rexha (“The Monster,” “Me, Myself, & I,” “I Got You,”, “Hey Mama,” that country Florida State Line collaboration) was on Good Morning America promoting the release of her debut album, Expectations. The album is several years in the making after years of trying to make a name for herself and having songs taken away from her and given to other and bigger artists.

• The good sis was nominated for a few Radio Disney Music Awards and GMA surprised her Fergie style and gave her two awards she had already won ahead of the taping of the show.

• Bebe won The Freshest Best New Artist and Best Collaboration with country duo Florida State Line for their surprise country hit “Meant to Be.”

• Rexha got emotional and cried upon receiving her awards and then accidentally broke one of the Golden Mickey trophies. Whoops.

• She also talked about her dream collaboration: Beyoncé and also talked about dealing with anxiety before performing on GMA.

ONTD Original: Hits That Were Reworked and Re-Recorded

𝐎𝐍𝐓𝐃 𝐎𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐥:
𝐇𝐢𝐭𝐬 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐖𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐑𝐞𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤𝐞𝐝 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐑𝐞-𝐑𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐞𝐝

Artists like to revisit and record their hits for different reasons - like to either celebrate how far they've come, to get the proper licensing after their contract with their label is up, or because they find another opportunity to get a good coin. For whatever reason, most fans can agree that it's unnecessary to do so because the final product never matches up to the original. If you're generous enough, maybe you can still enjoy the revamped songs on its own.

Here are 10 hits that were recorded a decade+ since its original recording, and see if they are worth the listen

10. Mariah Carey - "All I Want For Christmas Is You (Extra Festive Version)" (2010)

Re-recording of: "All I Want for Christmas Is You" (1994)
For: Merry Christmas II You
Notable differences: Orchestral intro, different ad-libs here and there
Justice to the original? Meh - Mariah is the queen of re-recording songs to fit remixes and such. There was another questionable re-work of this song featuring a cult-member singer, but this version does not necessarily add anything nor ruin the og.

9. Third Eye Blind - "Semi-Charmed Life" (2009)

How Pixar's Open Sexism Ruined My Dream Job - Variety Guest Column

Is it any surprise that being female is a detriment to working at Pixar?

Cassandra Smolcic was an intern and worked at Pixar for five years, from 2009 to 2014.

She was immediately warned about Lasseter's poor behavior, and he leered at her in a company kitchen two weeks in. Women had reported him, but nothing changed.

During art discussions for Cars 2, she was uninvited fom meetings because of Lasseter's poor behavior, how he couldn't control himself around young women.

She recalls the day a director compared his latest film toa big-titted blond who was difficult to nail down” in front of the whole company.

Typical "Women get little to no projects, while frat bro men get more than they can handle.", and mentions a woman asking for help with a challenging project, her requests ignored, the stress caused her to go to sabbatical, and the man they hired to continue the project had all the help he needed.

'Pose' star Dominique Jackson says Aruba resort threw her out

‘Pose’ Star Dominique Jackson says that she and her husband, Al, were thrown out of the Barceló resort in Aruba after a man attempted to rape her and the police were called when her husband tried to defend her.

A rep for the resort told in a statement:
"Barceló Aruba confirms an incident took place on the evening of Sunday, June 24, 2018, involving American model/actress Dominique Jackson and her husband, who were guests of the hotel at the time. Jackson initially posted a version of events on social media which, after a thorough investigation, was deemed highly inaccurate and inflammatory.
The incident took place in a public area and numerous witnesses provided a detailed accounting of the altercation, including video documenting the incident, which showed aggressive actions by the actress’ husband which resulted in the injury of another guest.
The safety of guests and staff is Barceló Aruba’s biggest priority and as such, the couple that initiated the altercation were asked to leave the resort. The original allegations have since been deleted from her social media platforms."

ONTD Original™: A Retrospective of "Dead Like Me" On the 15th Anniversary of Its Premiere Date

On June 27th of 2003, Bryan Fuller's soon to be short-lived series Dead Like Me (a first of many) premiered on Showtime. Starring Ellen Muth as Georgia "George" Lass, a young aimeless woman who finds herself killed in a freak accident and recruited to be a Grim Reaper, the series also starred Jasmine Guy, Mandy Patinkin, Callum Blue, Laura Harris, and Christine Willes, among others.

A uniquely comedic take on the afterlife, George was assigned to assist people by removing their souls just before they died, leading her and her Reaper friends into all sorts of ridiculous and dark situations, all the while still having to work a full time job to pay for "living". In the meantime, Georgia's family and her younger sister Reggie struggle with grieving her loss and trying to move on and have a normal life. One of Fuller's early shows, he left at the end of the first season because of behind the scenes debacles, and continued to make the also short-lived Wondefalls starring Caroline Dhavernas and ONTD's fave Pushing Daisies of a similar vein.

There was also the Dead Like Me: Life After Death movie, but lets keep this post positive. Below I've listed the top 10 rated episodes on IMDB (in order of release) as well as some clips from the show!
