This season on 'The Passage'



Based on author Justin Cronin’s best-selling trilogy of the same name, THE PASSAGE is an epic, character-driven thriller written by Liz Heldens (“Friday Night Lights”). Executive-produced by Emmy Award winner and Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Ridley Scott (“The Martian,” “Gladiator”) and writer/director Matt Reeves (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” “Cloverfield”), THE PASSAGE focuses on Project Noah, a secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a dangerous virus that could lead to the cure for all disease, but also carries the potential to wipe out the human race.

When a young girl, AMY BELLAFONTE (Saniyya Sidney, “Fences,” “Hidden Figures”) is chosen to be a test subject, Federal Agent BRAD WOLGAST (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, “Pitch”) is the man who is tasked with bringing her to Project Noah. Ultimately, however, Wolgast becomes her surrogate father, as he tries to protect her at any cost. Brad and Amy’s journey will force them to confront Project Noah’s lead scientist, MAJOR NICHOLE SYKES (Caroline Chikezie, “The Shannara Chronicles”), and the hardened ex-CIA operative in charge of operations, CLARK RICHARDS (Vincent Piazza, “Boardwalk Empire,” “Rescue Me”), whom Brad trained. It likewise brings them face-to-face with a dangerous new race of beings confined within the walls of Project Noah, including former scientist TIM FANNING (Jamie McShane, “Bosch,” “Bloodline,” “Sons of Anarchy”) and death-row inmate SHAUNA BABCOCK (Brianne Howey, “The Exorcist”). In seeking out any allies he can find, Brad also turns to his former wife, DR. LILA KYLE (Emmanuelle Chriqui, “Entourage,” “Murder in the First”), for help. But as Project Noah’s scientists hone in on a cure that could save humanity, these new beings begin to test their own powers, inching one step closer to an escape that could lead to an unimaginable apocalypse.

Quavo wants to show Trump how to throw the Clemson Tigers a proper championship celebration dinner



Quavo of the rap trio Migos wants to show President Donald Trump how to properly treat the Clemson Tigers by inviting them to a proper championship dinner. Quavo writes, “I wanna show Clemson Tigers and POTUS how champs are supposed to be treated. Y’all welcome to come by the QC headquarters anytime. Dabbin DABO STILL #GODAWGS The Stir Fry Way!”

On Monday, Trump invited the team to The White House and served the team a large buffet that consisted of McDonald's, Wendy's, Domino's, and Burger King for dinner. Yes, you read that correctly. Trump blamed this on the government shut down but yeah, no. It’s not clear if the team will officially take Quavo up on that offer but some of the team seems interested.

NYT Bestselling Author Sherrilyn Kenyon Accuses Husband of Poisoning Her




  • Keynon has filed a lawsuit against her husband and his assistant, accusing them of beginning to poison her food and drink in 2014 after taking out a million dollar life insurance policy on Keynon.

  • Keynon began to experience mysterious symptoms including vomiting, respiratory distress, facial swelling, hair falling out and teeth crumbling (Eek!) but doctors could not find the root of the problem.

  • In one instance, Keynon shared food given to her by her husband's assistance with an employee and the employee began to vomit.

  • After her husband filed for divorce and left their home, Keynon began to feel better and had her nails, hair and blood tested. Results showed her body contained high levels of lithium, tin, barium, platinum and thorium.

  • She has also accused her husband of siphoning off hundreds of thousands of dollars of her money, including $450,000 set aside for their three children, for his own use.

Soulja Boy is at it again, says he “made” Drake and taught him everything he knows



Soulja Boy is trending and no, it’s not because SouljaGame.Com redirects you to Nintendo’s website. During an interview with The Breakfast Club, DeAndre claims that Aubrey “Drake” Graham copied him and that “he made” Drake.

“Draaaaaaake? Draaaaaaaaake. The n that got bodied by Pusha T? The n that hiding his kid from the world, but his world want to hide from the kid? Aubrey Graham in a wheelchair? Draaaaaake? Y’all better stop playing with me man. Y’all talking about the lightskin n from Degeneres [he meant Degrassi]. Stop playing with me. Stop playing me like I ain’t teach Drake everything he know. Y’all ain’t hear Drake on his first song?”

He goes on to rap/sing, “‘Tell me what’s really going on Drizzy Drake back in this thing already what’s hap—. That’s Soulja! That’s my bar. He copied my whole fucking flow. He copied my whole fucking flow. Word for word. Bar for bar. Don’t act like I didn’t make Drake.”

DeAndre is referencing his 2007 song “What’s Hannenin’,” which Drake interpolated for his 2010 song “Miss Me.” Just last week, Soulja took to Instagram to say he had the biggest comeback of 2018! Not Tyga.

'The Favourite's potential Oscar-nominated actresses could make history - again




If When actresses Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz are announced as Oscar nominees on Tuesday morning for their work in 'The Favourite' (Olivia as lead; Emma and Rachel as supporting) they will mark the 19th time in the 91 year Oscars history that 3 or more women from the same movie have gotten nominations the same year.

I won't list the previous 18 times this happened, but the five most recent movies before this were:

-- 2011's "The Help" - Viola Davis (lead), Octavia Spencer (supporting and won), Jessica Chastain (supporting)
-- 2008's "Doubt" - Meryl Streep (lead), Viola Davis & Amy Adams (supporting)
-- 2002's "Chicago" - Renee Zellweger (lead); Catherine Zeta-Jones (supporting and won), Queen Latifah (supporting)
-- 1988's "Working Girl" - Melanie Griffith (lead), Sigourney Weaver & Joan Cusack (supporting)
-- 1985's "The Color Purple" - Whoopi Goldberg (lead), Oprah Winfrey & Margaret Avery (supporting)

Fun fact (maybe): only one movie had 4 actresses nominated, and that was 1950's "All About Eve," where all four women lost, sigh, and the only Oscars the movie won (including best picture) went almost entirely to men: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0042192/awards

Grindr's INTO shut down after exposing its CEO being against SSM


Grindr's online magazine, INTO, is gone. The company terminated its editorial staff after 17 months on Tuesday and announced it will be pivoting to video (which has worked so well for other publications). The magazine was geared toward the LGBTQ+ community.

The news comes several weeks after the magazine exposed Grindr CEO Scott Chen of being against same-sex marriage. Chen wrote in a Facebook post back in November that he believes marriage is between a man and a woman, but also a personal matter. Chen says his comments were taken out of context.

The company's head of communications stepped down after learning of Chen's comments and stated he is not surprised INTO is gone but pulled a "no comment" on whether he related it to the expose.

Black-ish Addresses Colorism



"Black Like Us" was written by Peter Saji, himself a bi-racial man with light skin.

It started with a simple annoyance about Diane being poorly lit in her school photo.
Diane's parents Andre and Bo open up a conversation about colorism within the African American community that turns explosive, personal and painful. 

There's historical context, about how slaveowners tended to put lighter blacks inside the plantation houses while dark skinned people worked in the fields, setting up resentments that would last for generations.
There is a discussion about how Latino, Asian and Indian people see similar favoritism towards lighter skinned people over darker skinned people in their communities too. 

The heated confrontations take place within the Johnson household itself.
Junior confronts Dre about his continued mockery of light-skinned people including Junior and his mom Bo.
Jr calls Dre out on the ways he perpetuates the notion that light-skinned black people are "less black" or more sensitive.
Ruby opens up about her own experiences with fair-skinned relatives who tormented her because of her complexion.
Diane points out that nobody is more impacted by the conversation than her, since she's the darkest in the family.

'SMILF' creator and star Frankie Shaw responds to accusations of misconduct



An investigation into Frankie Shaw, creator of Showtime comedy “SMILF”, has apparently exonerated her after several cast and crew members came forward with misconduct complaints (this post).

"This is my first time doing this job. We moved fast, and I was learning on the go. I'm just really grateful that I can take these lessons and be more of an aware and attuned showrunner moving forward. And I will say I am really proud of a lot of the work we did, you know? We had approximately 50-per-cent female crew in Boston. We had almost all women directors."

Rosie O’Donnell supported her co-star:
“It’s a beautiful set, I have to say. There is a family feel on the set and the great thing about Frankie is she addressed the stuff and the network did, and everybody is okay and here we go.”

Weaving was released from her contract at her request, and is not expected to join the show for a potential third season.

The second season of "SMILF" premieres on Showtime on Sunday.

Comedian Sasheer Zamata takes awful Louis C.K. jokes and makes them better.



Last month, part of disgraced comedian Louis C.K.'s recent set was leaked, showing him making fun of Parkland shooting survivors. Decent people were outraged. Last week at a show in Los Angeles, Saturday Night Live alum Sasheer Zamata decided she would take Louis C.K.'s jokes and use them to remind the world that Louis C.K. is not funny, and is actually trash. In response to his joke about Parkland, Zamata said:

"He says that the survivors of the shootings shouldn’t be spending their time talking to Congress about gun control. Instead they should be ‘finger-fucking’ each other. But who’s to say they’re not? They can do both! They’re teenagers — of course they’re finger-fucking each other! They just know how to separate sex from work, which I understand is a hard concept for Louis to grasp. Which is ironic, because we all know how much Louis loves to grasp hard concepts."


Despite coming for C.K., Zamata does defend a comedian's right to say whatever they want on stage though, as long as it's actually a joke:

"You can’t just get up onstage and say blatantly racist, transphobic, victim-blaming statements without a punch line! Like, who are you — all of our uncles?"

Watch the First Teaser for Jason Reitman’s ‘Ghostbusters’ Sequel



Sony Pictures released a first look at the upcoming movie which is a sequel to the 1984 film. The footage shows a just a glimpse of Ecto-1.

The studio had announced on Tuesday (ONTD post here) that there will be another “Ghostbusters” installment, most likely in the summer of 2020.

Reportedly the franchise is a priority for the studio, despite the disappointment over its 2016 reboot of “Ghostbusters”.

Perhaps because of that, this installment has no connection to the 2016 movie.
