  • Milano is filming season 2 of Insatiable in Georgia and points out that it was home to 455 filming projects last year.

New Books Hitting Shelves This Week


The Old Drift

On the banks of the Zambezi River, a few miles from the majestic Victoria Falls, there was once a colonial settlement called The Old Drift. Here begins the epic story of a small African nation, told by a mysterious swarm-like chorus that calls itself man’s greatest nemesis. The tale? A playful panorama of history, fairytale, romance and science fiction. The moral? To err is human.

In 1904, in a smoky room at the hotel across the river, an Old Drifter named Percy M. Clark, foggy with fever, makes a mistake that entangles the fates of an Italian hotelier and an African busboy. This sets off a cycle of unwitting retribution between three Zambian families (black, white, brown) as they collide and converge over the course of the century, into the present and beyond. As the generations pass, their lives – their triumphs, errors, losses and hopes – form a symphony about what it means to be human.

From a woman covered with hair and another plagued with endless tears, to forbidden love affairs and fiery political ones, to homegrown technological marvels like Afronauts, microdrones and viral vaccines – this gripping, unforgettable novel sweeps over the years and the globe, subverting expectations along the way. Exploding with color and energy, The Old Drift is a testament to our yearning to create and cross borders, and a meditation on the slow, grand passage of time.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck returns to 'The View' and addresses Rosie O’Donnell's comments



In an upcoming book by Ramin Setoodeh about The View, former co-host Rosie O’Donnel said that she had a "little bit of a crush" on Elisabeth. She emphasized that it was not sexual but she said there were "underlying lesbians tones on both [of their] parts." Elisabeth says that Rosie's comments are disturbing and tries to equate it to sexual harassment in the workplace. Elisabeth remains just as self-righteous and annoying as ever.



Elisabeth freaked out and had an asthma attack after she got fired from The View back in 2013. She admits that it hurt her pride, but she's in a much better place now. Joy had gotten fired, too, but she had a much more positive outlook because it allowed her to pursue other projects. Meghan fangirls over Elisabeth and talks about her being a huge inspiration. Joy throws major shade at Meghan by pointing out that while she argued with Elisabeth on the show, she never fought with her backstage.

'Guys and Dolls' getting another film musical remake




In more unnecessary remake news, the Broadway musical “Guys and Dolls” is getting yet another film adaptation. The first iconic one in 1955 famously starred Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, Frank Sinatra, and Vivian Blaine.

The original musical hit Broadway in 1950, and won three Tony Awards. It was revived, of course, several times, including in 1992 which launched the career of theatre legend Nathan Lane.

TriStar Pictures (that's still around?) got the rights to it, though no word yet on production... or casting.

Rosie O’Donnell Reveals Secret Crush on Elisabeth Hasselbeck

rosie-odonnell-elisabeth-hasselbeck-split

In the upcoming book, Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View — set for release April 2 — O’Donnell, 57, reveals that she had “a little bit of a crush” on Hasselbeck.

“There was a little bit of a crush,” O’Donnell states in a Variety excerpt

“I think there were underlying lesbian undertones on both parts. I think this is something that will hurt her if you write it. She was the MVP of a Division 1 softball team for two years that won the finals. There are not many, in my life, girls with such athletic talent on sports teams that are traditionally male that aren’t at least a little bit gay.”

Although O’Donnell was attracted to Hasselbeck, she never wanted to act on it.

Emily Ratajkowski Defends Her Husband For Not Paying Rent

sebastian-bear-mcclard.jpg

If you recall, Emily Ratajkowski's rich husband was living in his loft and not paying rent. They live in a loft in downtown Manhattan and do not pay for it.

New York City has a loophole that prevents landlords from evicting artists who were living in commercial buildings. The law is meant to protect struggling artists who live in poverty. But Sebastian Bear-McClard is apparently worth $12 million.

Emily wrote several tweets about her husband's rent-dodging ways:






What do you pay in rent? Do you know any insufferable rich hippies?

Jordan Peele explains why he's unlikely to cast a lead white dude

us-movie-jordan-peele-2.jpg

After the smash opening weekend totaling 71 million for Us (and rave reviews), the director talked a little about his creative vision for the future.

"I don't see myself casting a white dude as the lead in my movie. Not that I don't like white dudes," he said at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in East Hollywood. "But I've seen that movie."

"It really is one of the best greatest pieces of this story, feeling like we are in this time [where] a renaissance has happened and proven the myths about representation in the industry are false," Jordan adds.

While some may see that as (lol) "reverse racism", the impressive box office stats reflect an audience that is here for diversity in movies. Peele feels fortunate to be in a position he can approach Universal with things on his terms and they say yes.

For R-rated recent opening weekends in horror, Us sits only behind IT(2017) and last year's Halloween.

BREAKING: Charges against Jussie Smollett dropped by the state



Statement from Jussie's lawyers: Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him. Jussie was attacked by 2 people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public, causing an inappropriate rush to judgment."
"Jussie and many others were hurt by these unfair and unwarranted actions. This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion. That is wrong. It is a reminder that a victim, in this case Jussie, deserves dignity and respect. Dismissal of charges against the victim in this case was the only just result."

ONTD Original: A Look Back At Michael Jackson's Anti-Semitic Phone Call



- In 2005, ABC's 'Good Morning America' obtained a tape that was given to them by the lawyer of Dieter Wiesner and Marc Schaffel, who were Michael Jackson's ex-advisers and were suing the singer at the time for breach of contract and fraud. The tape was of a phone call between Jackson and Wiesner that was recorded two years prior, and it contained Jackson going on an anti-Semitic rant.

- Jackson is heard saying "They suck...they're like leeches...I'm so tired of it. They start out the most popular person in the world, make a lot of money, big house, cars, and everything. End up with penniless. It is a conspiracy. The Jews do it on purpose."

- Brian Oxman, who was Jackson's attorney at the time, didn't deny that it was Jackson on the phone call but said that the conversation was recorded without his permission. Raymone Bain, Jackson’s spokesperson, said that Jackson had “no comment” when asked for a response to the tape.

- Abraham Foxman, who was the National Director of the Anti-Defamation League at the time, said: "It is sad that Jackson is infected with stereotypical ideas of Jews as money-grubbing and manipulative."
