Norah O’Donnell is the new host of CBS Evening News

As previously reported as speculation on ONTD, there are host changes on CBS daily news programs.

CBS news division’s first female president, Susan Zirinsky made an announcement on Monday that would signal a new era for the network. Gayle King would be the centerpiece of a restructured “CBS This Morning.” Norah O’Donnell was the next anchor of the “CBS Evening News,” only the second woman to hold that role.

Katie Couric was the first (2006–2011). Connie Chung co-anchored with Dan Rather from 1993 to 1995.

O'Donnell will start anchoring from Washington D.C. in the autumn.

Current host Jef Glor has been on the job 18 months & ratings are lower than when he first started. Zirinsky suggested other jobs for him at the network, but "their conversation was inconclusive."

Taron Egerton wants you to know he finds kissing men just as satisfying as kissing women

- Super heterosexual actor Taron Egerton has said he finds kissing men just as satisfying as kissing women.
- Of course, he was talking about his character in 'Rocketman': “For me, kissing a man onscreen is no less appealing than kissing a woman onscreen. I’m not in any way repulsed by the male form. It’s an uncomfortable thing regardless of who you’re with. It makes no difference as to your sexual preference.” (it's 2019..."preference"? rly?)
- Straight actors Taron Egerton and Richard Madden take roles away from gay actors in 'Rocketman', premiering May 22.

"A Whole New World" of clips & posters from Disney's Aladdin (2019)

Naomi Scott recalls the thrilling magic carpet ride, "Filming it, you're surrounded by blue screen, you're on this foam carpet that kind of moves and is really uncomfortable, and the wind's blowing. In people's minds, you think, 'Oh my gosh, that must have been the most magical moment,' when really it probably wasn't. Poor Mena's [Massoud, plays Aladdin] not got very strong ankles so he's kneeling on this flipping foam thing going, 'When are we done?!' "

"That's the reality of it. But when I see it on screen is when I think it will hit me."

Meghan McCain Faked Sick To Avoid Talking About Shady In-Law + Husband Launches Homophobic Attack

  • Seems like Meghan McCain can't handle facing the truth when it comes to her own personal life, so much so, that she faked sick just to avoid talking about it last week on The View.

  • Producers of the hit talk show ratted to the Daily Mail, anonymously, that everyone is sick of Meghan and called her out for faking sick for two days last week so she would not have to address the fact that her father is currently under an ethics investigation by the DOJ.

  • Producers knew she was faking because she told them she would return on Friday, so she could be there for the big Joe Biden interview.

  • Meghan's father in law, Doug Domenach is an Assistant Secretary for the Interior department and currently faces an ethics investigation for discussing policy matters with organizations they were formerly employed with.

Foreign tourists find slurping unpleasant

With the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics, a new concern has emerged in Japan, nuuhara (ヌーハラ、which is short for “noodle harassment”).

The show Tokudane! did a segment on noodle harassment and interviewees from New Zealand, France, Sweden, UK and the USA all expressed feeling awkward and unpleasant and made Japanese who do it sound like a pig.

The segment ended up on Twitter, where it sparked a huge debate over if Japanese should change their customs to accommodate the foreigners visiting due to the huge coming events or if they should stick to their ways. Eventually, even TV personality, Tatsumasa Murasame intervened, saying he’s a pro slurp team member.

Do you slurp your noodles, ONTD?

Lana Del Rey teases cover of Sublime's "Doin' Time"

It's been four months since Lana Del Rey released "hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have - but i have it," the third "fan single" from her highly anticipated new album Norman Fucking Rockwell. And while details of the first official single from the followup to 2017's Lust for Life are still scarce, the elusive chanteuse has finally broken her silence, taking to social media to tease a cover of Sublime's 1997 single "Doin' Time."

In a 28-second video, Del Rey is seen lip-syncing to her recording of the song, which peaked at #87 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is itself a loose cover of George Gershwin's 1934 aria "Summertime." Fans can hear Del Rey's full interpretation when it drops on May 20.

Tom Ellis graces the pages of Men’s Health

Tom Ellis is in the pages of Men’s Health magazine this month and reveals his recent body transformation after losing a bet with his trainer of nine months. The bet was straight forward, if his show “Lucifer” was renewed for a fourth season on Fox, Ellis would have to commit to a more rigorous three month training plan. If it was cancelled, well...he would not.

“And then of course the show got cancelled,” laughs Ellis. “I was devastated, but one thing I did think was at least I’m off the hook! And then everything happened with Netflix, and the first call I got after the show was picked up was from [my trainer] Paolo, saying ‘we’re on.’”

Tom had three months to bulk up and gained 20lbs in the first two months of training. He then started going down in weight the last month, changing from heavy compound to smaller, medium weights, and doing supersets on different body parts. He also started every session with a sprint session on the treadmill.

When it came to his eating plan, Ellis had five regular meals and two shakes per day. Meals were macro balanced with most of his carbs coming from vegetables. The Satan actor also completely cut out alcohol and beer from his diet for those three months.

You can read a more detailed article on Tom’s diet and exercise plan at the source. Season cuatro of Lucifer is streaming now on Netflix.

Jessica Chastain and Ava DuVernay Call Out ‘Game of Thrones’ for Treatment of Women

-Jessica Chastain and Ava DuVernay tweeted out during Episode 4 to task for what they say is HBO's insensitivity to rape and race on the blockbuster Game of Thrones.
-"Some “Thrones” fans believe the lack of female writers and directors led to the unsatisfying depiction of Sansa as a survivor of sexual assault. In the entire run of HBO’s series, only one female director has been brought on, Michelle MacLaren, who helmed four episodes, the last of which was in 2014. Jane Espenson, Vanessa Taylor and Gursimran Sandhu are the only female writers, contributing to nine episodes total."

[Spoilers from Season 8, Episode 4]-"In the most recent episode, Sansa claims that without the various manipulations and sexual assaults she has had to endure at the hands of male characters, she "would’ve stayed a little bird all my life".
-"The same episode saw the death of the only woman of color on the show, Missandei, at the hands of Queen Cersei."

Has The Met Gala Gone From Classy To Tacky?


Critics of the Met Gala are saying that the guests invited to this year's gala made the party tacky, not classy. When it began, the Met Gala used to be known as a night for only the most fashionable people of the fashion world. Then, it became a celebrity red carpet. Now, it's even lower.

Guests this year included Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, James Charles, and Hailey Bieber.

Also, many guests totally ignore the theme. Even elite guests like Gisele Bundchen and Gwyneth Paltrow totally skipped the "camp" theme.

Many people believe that the Met gala has lost its way and is no longer the elite fashion event that it once was.

Has the Met Gala lost its way?

I don't know

James Charles' highschool classmates expose how he used to catfish the soccer team for nudes

A couple weeks ago, James Charles’ rumored fling Gage Gomez made a Youtube video claiming that James manipulated him. In the video, Gage claims that James knew he was straight all along and pursued him anyway.

"James saw this as an opportunity to manipulate me as a person who may or may not have been trying to figure things out about their sexuality, after the fact that I told him I was straight multiple times," he explained. "Because as you all know, this person, 99.9 maybe 100 percent of the time goes after heterosexual men."

This all stems after his following lost it when the two were spotted "cozying up" at Coachella. Shortly after, James sent out a series of cryptic tweets, calling Gage a "disgusting con artist."

Although Gage did say he had an "awesome" time with James at Coachella, he alleged that the shishter tried to pressure him into doing things he wasn’t comfortable with.

Gage reveals, "There were some parts where I guess he was not sure how I was feeling, even though I was telling him the whole time I wasn’t into, I guess you could say, experimenting at that time... He proceeded to get extremely upset with me because of that and kind of tried to play his emotions and push [them] onto me to kind of guilt me into trying something that I didn’t want to do."
