ONTD ORIGINAL: Drama in the world of famous authors

Recently I came across the controversy surrounding the book series The Selection and it made me remember some of the drama that surrounded authors of other popular novels so I decided to make a post in hopes of finding out some more juicy stories.

1. Cassandra Clare- The Mortal Instruments
She's the author of the popular series of books called "The Mortal Instruments" who she based on her own Harry Potter fanfiction "The Draco Trilogy"  which plagiarised Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Blackadder, The Secret Country (book by Pamela Dean) and more. When she became a published author, she changed her pen last name from Claire to Clare so she would avoid the general public googling her and finding out about the plagiarism and why she was banned from fanfiction.net. She had her lawyer friend threathen people who called her out on her plagiarism, called the police on people who disagreed with her, tried to get a girl kicked out of her University...Here's an old ONTD post about it: https://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/73559683.html

Jennifer Garner on paparazzi: ‘If you love something, you’ll do whatever you need to do'


In a piece for WSJ Magazine, Garner reflects on raising her kids with ex-husband Ben Affleck in the public eye:

“When I had kids, I started considering how jobs worked for my family. How much am I going to ask of my partner and kids? What’s worth it and what isn’t?”

Ben and Jennifer learned to shield their children from the spotlight to the best of their abilities:

Something Ben and I used to say to each other all the time is, ‘We have to adapt.’ We were surrounded by paparazzi,” “There were so many things you wouldn’t expect. We’d be left alone at Disneyland and then we would be at a park in Santa Monica. But if you love something, you’ll do whatever you need to do.”

Christina Aguilera Hints "Your Body" Performed at #TheXperience

Since her interview with Andy Cohen, Xtina has been hearing out ideas for her Vegas show #TheXperience, including the setlist itself. 185 million views and an iconic mouse click gif later, a fan called in on the interview suggesting the addition of "Your Body" - her 2012 single from an unknown album that was only performed once (on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show, using office supplies). She acknowledged the song suggestion again on Twitter (tweet above).

It's not as if Xtina also forgot the album we don't know about, let alone its lead single. She incorporated the song "Let There Be Love" in her setlists performed at private events, the Liberation Tour, to last years' New Years Eve performance. Will that unknown album finally get to be unearthed?

Conspicuously absent from her talk show, Wendy Williams is nervous about being replaced


As previously reported on ONTD, Wendy has been M.I.A. from her daytime television talk show for weeks after suffering a mysterious shoulder injury. On top of that, although Wendy insists in public statements that the "Hunter Family" is stronger than ever, it is widely known that Kevin Hunter's longtime mistress, with whom he shares a second home, is pregnant. There are also rumors that Wendy's shoulder injuries were caused by domestic abuse.

Wendy's conspicuous absence from the 11th season of her show follows months of erratic behavior on television, such as slurring her words, being unable to read basic sentences on the teleprompter, forgetting guests' names, no longer walking on set at all and sitting during all of her segments, and infamously fainting on set while dressed as the Statue of Liberty.

In light of her absence, the show has been hosted by numerous stand-ins, including seasoned television personalities Jerry O'Connell and Nick Cannon. Several staff members have reportedly pushed for one of Wendy's replacements to take over for good, citing their frustration that Wendy built her career on spilling tea but won't be honest with her own staff about what is going on with her life that is clearly in shambles.

For example, on Nick Cannon's first day he reported that he had spoken to Wendy and she was doing great. Yet even longtime staff who had been there since season 1 said they had not heard anything from Wendy about when she would return or what might happen to the show. What's more, Wendy was spotted last week in Florida which has also led her staff to believe she is lying about her illnesses.

On top of this, there are some viewers who say they'd rather Nick Cannon take Wendy's role, too--or at least get his own talk show.

Sources said that Wendy is unsettled by the apparent success of her stand-ins, and she’s becoming concerned that she won’t be able to make it back on the air in time to save her gig. There is no indication of when Wendy would return, or if anyone even wants her to. One insider told Page Six, “She’s in no state to get back on TV anytime soon."

“She’s super scared and anxious,” said an insider. “Watching [fill-in host] Nick Cannon being a huge hit with her audience is tough for her. They’re already starting to mess with the format. It’s like watching them screw around with her baby.”

Ariana Grande's new song is about Mac Miller and Pete Davidson

The eighth track on Ariana Grande's new album, thank u, next, appears to be about Ariana's past relationship. The singer took to Twitter to explain that "Ghostin'" is about not being over someone while being in a relationship. In the new song, Grande sings,

"I know that it breaks your heart when I cry again over him
Though I wish he were here instead
Don’t want that living in your head
He just comes to visit me
When I’m dreaming every now and then"

Fans are sure that the song is about her exes, Pete Davidson and Mac Miller. Miller and Grande dated for two years before breaking up in May 2018. Within the next several weeks, Grande became engaged to the Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson. After Mac Miller's fatal overdose in September 2018, sources close to the singer stated that his death put immense strain on her life and relationship with Pete Davidson.

The song also appears to sample the intro of "2009" by Mac Miller. Some fans have also reported that Grande included audio from Mac Miller around the the 4:00 mark.

Microsoft really wants you to stop using Internet Explorer

Microsoft really thinks it’s time that people stopped using Internet Explorer as their web browser of choice. The company officially discontinued IE in 2015, but people are still using the web browser and ignoring its successor. In a recent blog post titled “The perils of using Internet Explorer as your default browser,” Microsoft’s cybersecurity specialist Chris Jackson said everyone should stop using Internet Explorer.

Jackson writes, “We’re not supporting new web standards for it and, while many sites work fine, developers by and large just aren’t testing for Internet Explorer these days. They’re testing on modern browsers.” He adds, “As new apps are coming out with greater frequency, what we want to help you do is avoid having to miss out on a progressively larger portion of the web!”

Microsoft Edge was introduced as IE’s successor and made its debut on Windows 10.

Love After Lockup Discussion Post - "Wife on the Run"

Whew what does OP even say about this? There was a lot of sensory overload this episode and her heart couldn’t handle it. However, OP thought there were only ten episodes this season but there are twelve!!!!! We have been frauded in the best way possible. But no Angela or Tony. What had happened was:

Clint is excited Tracie was incarcerated after going bouncing less than 24 hours after getting hitched. She was missing for eight days, incarcerated for two and when released she didn’t even call him with the phone she stole from him. The kicker? Clint had to hear about this from a lawyer because Clint doesn’t have the money to pay for the rental Tracie stole which is why he went to see the lawyer about debts. The lawyer advises that he should file for an annulment (listen to this real legal expert, Clint!). OP wants a whole spinoff series with these two.

RuPaul interviews Frances Bean Cobain

· Frances Bean Cobain was interviewed by RuPaul & Michelle Visage on their What's the Tee? podcast after judging a Judy Garland themed episode of RuPaul's drag race
· Frances, 26, described herself as the "OG Blue Ivy" and talked about her music & life as the hyper privileged life as the only daughter of music legends
· She says it doesn't bother her to be musically compared to her father because it's a really good comparison and describes her brand as "authenticity" which she believes people are thirsty for in the Kardashian era
· Talking about her $100mn inheritance, she says the only way she knew how to live was in excess and that it took getting sober for her to realize the money isn't permanent. She says she now takes responsibility, having meetings and talking to people in charge of managing her finances. She says you don't have to live lavishly to live well and that she has some guilt about being rich because she didn't earn it

Ariana Grande Thank U Next Interview

She recorded a long, very honest interview with her friend Zach Sang and it was released today. Here are some stand out parts:

- Says she would go space even if she would never come back, Zach jokes that she'd be the one person who surivives and she says "Yeah, my luck. I'm sorry, that's dark I apologize".
Also at one point 1 hr in, makes a funny comment about being blind/doesn't wear contacts, says she doesn't wanna see, she's "seen enough".
- 12:00 onwards she sorta reveals her and Pete briefly got back together during recording of this record, talking about writing Thank U Next, says a version without names exists too, and 14:30 rambles about getting back together, and she recorded a different version of the song and then broke up again, etc.
- Ghostin' was hard to record, she begged Scooter to take it off the record at first. The 2nd verse in the song was hardest to write/song.
- Bloodline intro is her grandma talking about being unable to find a hearing aid that works for her.
- Big Sean and Ricky (inspiration behind Moonlight) were supportive of the song Thank U Next.
- 50:00 mark Says she probably wouldnt like herself if she only saw what the public knows of herself, half of the stuff is BS and the other half is her touching her hair and being a pretty popstar, ew, she says.
- Every morning starts her day on Twitter talking to fans. Internet is "trash but it's beautiful".

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott threw an over-the-top party for daughter Stormi’s 1st Birthday

Parents Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott threw their daughter Stormi Webster an over-the-top 1st Birthday party the only way a Kardashian/Jenner family could. The theme was STORMIWORLD (her father’s ASTROWORLD album and tour come to life but for children) complete with a giant replica of Stormi’s head as the tent entrance, a mini-amusement park, carnival games, a gift shop, and more. Guests enjoyed their french fries and mini-pizzas in pink cartons with Louis Vuitton symbols on them, but had SW instead of LV. More capitalism behind the cut.
