Jussie Smollett expected to plead not guilty in court today





Jussie Smollett walked into the Leighton Criminal Courthouse. ABC7Chicago says that Smollett will plead not guilty. Smollett's defense team has said there has been a lot of misinformation in the case.

This is at the heels of news that dropped yesterday in regards to how Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx was forced to recuse herself from this case. She was contacted by a former Michelle Obama aide who passed her information to a relative of Smollett who had concerns about the investigation. The communication between Foxx and the relative was known via a public records request by the Chicago Sun Times.

Joe Giudice released from prison... straight into ICE custody



-Joe Giudice, husband of Real Housewives of NJ star Teresa Giudice, has been released from prison following a 41 month sentence for bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. He was transferred to the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement upon release.

-Giudice was born in Saronno, Italy and moved to the U.S. with his family when he was 1, but never became a citizen. ICE has had a detainer for his deportation since he was first locked up in 2016.

-In October, a judge ruled that Giudice should be deported to Italy upon completion of his sentence. In November Giudice appealed that decision.

-Teresa has said she would separate from Joe if the deportation appeal is not successful, and that she will not be moving her family to Italy to be with her husband.

Paris Hilton Supports Michael Jackson

N-word enthusiast and noted cocaine user Paris Hilton was recently asked if she would continue playing R Kelly and Michael Jackson songs during her DJ Sets. While initially ignoring the question, the alcohol-worn-wiring in her brain sparked up and decided spouting "Michael Jackson's an icon" was a good idea. Hereby clarifying her stance as a supporter of the pedophile, and as a result, advocating child abuse.

Sephora Cuts Ties with Lori Loughlin's Daughter



Lori Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade, has lost several sponsorship deals in the wake of the Operation Varsity Blues scandal.

HP did a promo with Louglin and her daughter and have since taken them down from their site: “HP worked with Lori Loughlin and Olivia Jade in 2017 for a one-time product campaign. HP has removed the content from its properties.”

An even bigger blow is Sephora severing ties with Olivia Jade as she is a beauty blogger on Youtube. In a statement, the company said, "After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately." They've removed their collaboration from their site.

Olivia Jade also had brand deals with Amazon, Dolce & Gabbana, Lulus, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Smashbox Beauty Cosmetics, Smile Direct Club, Too Faced Cosmetics, Boohoo, and Unilever’s TRESemmé. No word from them about dropping her.

As for USC, the school she's currently attending, they're doing a review of their admissions process: "USC is in the process of identifying any funds received by the university in connection with this alleged scheme. Additionally, the university is reviewing its admissions processes broadly to ensure that such actions do not occur going forward.”

UPDATE: A rep has stated that "TRESemmé is no longer working with Olivia Jade Giannulli"

Marvel Adds Danai Gurira to AVENGERS: ENDGAME Poster after Backlash


After the release of the latest and probably last Avengers: Endgame trailer and subsequent poster, non-white fans realized the omission of Danai Gurira on the poster.

It wouldn't be a big deal...if she were the only person to not have her name featured. Fans were quick to tweet about it.

Marvel quickly corrected their mistake;

While all attention is good attention for a movie studio, Endgame needs no help in generating buzz, and this was probably a typical omission of "So much purple and red, I can't stand to look at it anymore" / "who cares about the black character."

Avengers Endgame opens April 26th.

Loughlin also has a recurring role recreating her Aunt Becky character on the Netflix series "Fuller House". No word yet from Netflix if she'll be allowed to continue on that show.

Yvette Nicole Brown addresses her post about being mistaken for a Target employee




Back in February, actress Yvette Nicole Brown shared her frustration and made a post on Twitter asking white women to stop mistaking her for a Target employee. She wrote:


During a recent appearance on The Real, Brown further explained her post by saying, “I was very respectful – I’ve been respectful to every white woman who thought I worked at a store. Every single one. I’ve never been rude. I just asked the question ‘cause I don’t understand it.” She continues, “And the responses I got from other Black people, and Asian people and other people of color that have been mistaken for the help in various stores – it is something that happens and most of the time it is an older white woman that it happens to. So my thought about it is simply this: I don’t think it’s racist, I don’t think that all women – white women are racist, I don’t even think the 50 women that have mistaken me for the help are racist. What I think it is, is that I’ve heard a statement that white women are the most protected and respected women in this country. Which means their entire lives, they’ve been taken care of and tended to in some way or another by everyone, so they’re just used to people being of service. So when they’re out, and they need help, they just look for the first person that can be of service. That’s what I think it is.”

Taylor Swift calls out haters who predicted her tour would be a flop

Earlier tonight, Taylor Swift accepted the award for Tour of the Year. It was the highest grossing tour in U.S. history.

In her speech, she thanked fans and said, "One of the most wonderful things about the way that this whole tour turned out is that for like, the entire six months leading up to the first show of this tour, every headline that I read was — ‘This is going to be a massive failure’ [or] ‘This is going to be a flop tour.’ And it really did wonders for my self-esteem. It was really great to hear people saying that I was going to be playing to nearly empty stadiums."

Ben Affleck was On the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday where he discussed his tattoo

Affleck said:

"It's a phoenix"

"Rising from your ass," Ellen DeGeneres added.

"Yes, it's a phoenix rising from my ass," Affleck said. "And I was about to say it represents something really important to me, but you know what? Maybe just, we'll skip that. It's meaningful to me. I like it."

"So [the paparazzi] got a picture of my tattoo," he said. "And yeah, the sentiment ran, you know, against, which I think- I love my tattoo. I'm very happy with it."

Jennifer Garner weighed in on his back tattoo in 2016, when she told Vanity Fair:

"You know what we would say in my hometown about that? 'Bless his heart.'" "A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario? I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes."
