Meghan McCain reportedly hurled obscenities at The View's producer infront of live studio audience

On Tuesday, moderator Whoopi Goldberg had to restart a segment after Meghan confused a law professor with a Justice Department official.

Whoopi ended the segment and intended to restart it after a commercial break, but sources said McCain lost her cool and shouted profanities at the production crew.

“Meghan became unhinged!” said a source with the show. “She screamed, ‘This is some bullsh*t! What are you producers good for?'”

Some other producer tried to calm Meghan but it didn't work

“Before they could, she turned to the show’s executive producer Brian Teta and said, ‘You motherf*cker, how could you let this happen to me?'” the source said. “All of this happened in front of the live studio audience.”

Meghan was called into HR after the show ended, but other people at the show don't expect anything to come off this because top ABC News executive James Goldston is Meghan's biggest fan and is enamored by her family legacy (my father TM).

“At this point,” the source added, “Meghan is starring in the talk show version of ‘How To Get Away With Murder.'”

Theater Roundup: 'Betrayal' to Broadway, Closings, New Music + More

Truly didn't think I'd be back so soon with another theater post, but it's been a big news week on Broadway. Yesterday, we learned that the recent West End revival of Harold Pinter's Betrayal, starring Zawe Ashton, Charlie Cox, and Tom Hiddleston, is transferring to Broadway in August. The play, which is about an affair and set in reverse chronological order, will mark the Broadway debuts of all three actors. Betrayal will be moving into the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater, which currently houses The Ferryman, winner of this year's Best Play Tony. Tickets for the 17 week engagment (August - early December) are already on sale if you have an Amex, but otherwise go on sale mid-July.

BTS - Heartbeat MV (final song from their new mobile game)

BTS launched their mobile game BTS World this week, a visual novel/card game where the player is thrown back in time to before BTS debuted and must manage the band and help them become the BTS we know today. Heartbeat is the final track off the game's original soundtrack, and features the full group.

The game features a side plot that shows the lives of each member if they never had gone on to become BTS, so the music video for Heartbeat features scenes from that side plot colliding with their normal reality.

Jake Gyllenhaal won’t stand for your Sean Paul slander, is apparently a huge fan

“I think Sean Paul is massively overrated.” Do not utter those words to actor Jake Gyllenhaal, ever. Apparently The Day After Tomorrow actor is Sean Paul’s no. 1 fan.

Gyllenhaal shut down a caller who said those exact words Thursday during a BBC Radio 1 segment called “Unpopular Opinion.”

“Nope, absolutely...just, just hang up on him,” insisted Gyllenhaal, who appeared alongside Tom Holland to promote the upcoming movie Spider-Man: Far From Home. “Sean Paul makes every song better he’s in. Absolutely...he’s a genius. There’s not a song he’s on, a remix that he’s on that isn’t good. I totally disagree.”

“He makes driving fun!” he added. “I don’t care what you’re doing. You could be stuck in traffic and he comes on and then you wanna dance. Doesn’t matter.”

The Jamaican rapper and singer responded on Twitter and was grateful for Gyllenhaal’s words of support.

Eleven: "No longer trapped in the cabin, Eleven ventures out into the world and becomes good friends with Max. But their summer fun is short-lived when they make a horrifying discovery…"

Hopper: “Hopper is panicked about Eleven’s relationship with Mike — how does he control the romantic whims of a teenage daughter? But his problems grow more serious as Joyce draws him into a new mystery…”

Billy: "Billy is now a popular lifeguard at the Hawkins Pool but he will soon find himself pulled into a never-ending nightmare. This season is a major one for Billy — he really takes center stage this year, and we can’t wait for people to see Dacre’s performance."


#Downgrade: Mark Wahlberg is replacing your boy Chris Evans in "Infinite"

Evans has passed on the role because of scheduling issues.

Let's see what the movie is about. Who wants to bet it involves a white lead with a gun.

Based upon the novel "The Reincarnationist Papers", it is based upon the Cognomina, a secret society of people who possess total recall of their past lives. A troubled young man haunted by memories of two past lives stumbles upon the centuries-old society and decides to join their ranks.

That sounds really cool, but Wahlberg? The 'young man'? Ha. Ha ha. Maybe the cryogenic ice coma he puts himself in daily is part of that.

Yikes. Let's cast someone else instead! Go!


Whew chile....the downgrade.

BREAKING: Police will NOT pursue criminal suit for defamation against Neymar's accuser

- Najila Trindade, the Brazilian woman who accused footballer Neymar Jr. of rape, had told media "the police is bought" when asked about the forensic officers not finding evidence of an alleged break in at her apartment (when evidence of her allegations was allegedly stolen). This landed her in hot water when a chief of police filed a report against her for defamation (considered a crime, aggravated due to the defamatory statement being made to the media and about public servants).

- Today, the forensic officers who were targeted by her offensive statement announced they won't be taking the defamation criminal suit further. The police report will be "archived", and the officers still have 6 months to change their minds before the case is officially closed.

- The officers gave 3 reasons for why they're letting it go:

Long-time Nowness collaborator Andrew Thomas Huang writes and directs this captivating short film about an ordinary restaurant worker’s extraordinary sexual awakening. Nightly visits from the Rabbit God, who arrives in the body of a tantalizing mysterious stranger, blossom into a tryst that empowers the young man to embark on a journey of self-discovery. “Interweaving my personal family history in the Chinese restaurant business with the richness of Chinese mythology,” says Huang, “Kiss of the Rabbit God is a confession and a love letter to my queer Asian community.”

Mayor Pete Talks Campaign




[Mayor Pete was already scheduled to be a guest for today]
Joy liked him last night. Right wing has been referring to Dems as socialists. He feels he is a Democratic Capitalist. Says the GOP uses socialism to describe whatever they don’t like. Me-again asked about not going to the spin room and talking to press gaggle. He says he didn’t have anything additional to say. She mentions Swalwell ageism quote. He says typical stuff, how he’d incorporate wisdom of the experienced with new visions of others, for everything from climate to economic equality, etc. Feels sometimes an outside perspective is beneficial.

Sunny says she was a fan and thought he was impressive. Brings up backlash of homes initiatives. Explains all the details, [second video] too much to transcribe. Talks about the feedback and how that affected redirecting funds to help with repairs. Moves on to national plan re/homeowners, mentions Douglas Plan. Talks about long ago policies that led to the issue and how to revisit those.

Ana brings up his earlier reference to kids (in his first video he mentions "my kids"..., seemed more like a euphemism), says she wants to be a godmother and teach them Spanish. Ana wants to know about Homestead. He said 5 other candidates from last night were there today. Homestead has 2,700 detained children. A local member of congress led them, but the facility people wouldn’t let them past the waiting room, or let them see the conditions they were in.

Tracklist for Lion King Revealed: All Original Songs There + Mystery Track

In the past there was some fear that Be Prepared might get cut after Elton John forgot to list it while talking about the film but fear not, every song from the original film made it into the remake (except for Morning Report, but that doesn't count).

For all you Broadway lovers hoping that some of the original tracks from the show would make it in, He Lives in You (which is also the opener of Lion King 2) is the only one present.

Hans Zimmer's score is also on the soundtrack as it had been confirmed that he would return for this film.

What's making people scratch heads though is the mysteriously Untitled 14th track. But Director Jon Favreau revealed it's an original Beyonce solo (so not Shadowland).

"We have all the original songs, but there's a song that she performed and wrote in the spirit of the production along with working with Lebo M., who's part of it with Hans Zimmer. They were all collaborating with her and helping to bring this new piece of music into a film where there's already a very established musical personality to the piece. So it was nice of them to have them working with her to allow the new song to feel organically a part of the new production."

The soundtrack will be released July 11 and the film releases July 19.

Cardi B Responds to Trolls Who Say She Isn't Black Since She Speaks Spanish

Cardi spoke about how she's been mistaken for Mexican because she speaks Spanish. 

"I'm not Mexican at all. I'm West Indian and I'm Dominican. I speak Spanish because I'm Dominican. And it's like, 'So what's the difference between Dominican and Mexican?' And it's like, everything! People just don't be understanding shit. It's like, 'Cardi's Latin, she's not Black.' And it's like, 'Bro, my features don't come from...white people fucking, OK?' And they always wanna race-bait when it comes to me...I have Afro features. 'Oh, but your parents are light-skinned'—alright, but my grandparents aren't."

"It's crazy because some island women, some artists that are from the same islands as me, people will be like, 'Oh they're Black,' But because Cardi speaks Spanish to people, she's not Black, even though we have similar features, same skin complexion. But no, they want to not put Cardi in it because I speak Spanish."

Olivia Munn Slams Ben And Casey Affleck, Tarantino For Ability To ‘Just Push Past’ MeToo Allegations

Olivia Munn is calling out some famous men who have been accused of sexual misconduct in the past yet managed to brush off the allegations and continue on with their Hollywood careers as if nothing had happened.

"There are these certain men who, when they mess up they kind of go, ‘Oops, sorry, my bad,’ and then just resume their place in line. When you are given the opportunity to have any kind of power and you abuse that power, I believe you immediately lose all positioning and that you don’t get to have that power anymore.”

Casey Affleck was accused of sexual harassment in two lawsuits filed by different women over his alleged behaviour toward them on the set of his 2010 film.
“One Tree Hill” star Hilarie Burton accused Ben Affleck of groping her breast back in 2003, 
Quentin Tarantino admitted to abusive behaviours on set and also admitted to knowing what Harvey Weinstein was doing.

The insider noted:
“It’s hard for Meghan in London because the press is so vicious to her there,“This is her life every day. But her mentality is like, well if this is what it’s going to be like, I’m going to do what I want to do. I won’t play by these rules.”

"A lot of women would say that's objectifying women, it's about who you are on the inside," the interviewer said.

He then responded to someone who talked about the film’s homage to fellow filmmaker Brian De Palma:

“Don’t get me started on Brian DP. I rewatched Redacted last night because I thought that given total artistic freedom he could reach for the stars. And he did. But the stars were beyond his reach. The script is trite, it is weak. That’s because Brian is trite, Brian is artistically weak. Skate fast on thin ice. That’s his story. That’s his con.”
