-The allegation appears in Ronan Farrow's new book, "Catch and Kill" which is about his investigation into Harvey Weinstein that comes out October 15, 2019.

-Both sources in this post detail Nevils' experience (but Variety has the most detailed account which they reported after receiving an advance copy of Farrow's book) and she also claims that NBC staff were well aware of what happened and it made her work life "torture."

"Insecure" actress Amanda Seales responds to criticism from co-star over Emmy party snub




- Amanda Seales ("Insecure", 90s Nickelodeon show " My Brother and Me") went on Instagram to bemoan her removal from an Emmy's party.

- She revealed this week that Issa Rae's publicist was the one who had her removed. Seales says the publicist has always been curt with her. Last year Seales was Jill Scott's guest and had trouble getting in. She says the publicist was rude to her and when she spoke to Rae, Rae told her" Yeah, I mean that's between y'all. This is her party, so it's not my jurisdiction to tell her how to treat you at her party".

- This year Seales was Jesse Williams guest and was told her name was not on the list. When she got in and headed toward the table of " Insecure" cast members she was told by security to leave and was escorted out.

- After people online told her she was being childish for going to a party she was not invited to she disagreed. Seales" This was not a party at her house, this was not a naming ceremony,this was not a birthday party, This was a Hollywood party for black entertainer's and contributors to Hollywood. So by nature of that I am a part of that industry and should be there celebrating with my community".

- Seales co star Sarunas Jackson (Dro, Molly's boyfriend who is in an open relationship)weighed in with a tweet. Jackson" you can't be a disrespectful a** human being and expect people to want to hang with you. It's quite simple. Sit it out".

- Seales went on Instagram to comment on how it's interesting how people seem to be loving all the hate she is getting and if people say you are something enough times people start to believe it

Jameela Jamil finds out that the Iraq war is bad


Famous activist Jameela Jamil recently took to her twitter to commend Ellen's defense of hanging out with George W. Bush. She said Ellen was making "an incredibly necessary point in our society".

In a now-deleted tweet she complained about not being able to have a debate about these sort of topics on twitter because people (who presumably were bringing up Bush's war crimes) were getting "too extreme".

A few hours later, 33 year old Jameela announced that she had just received some new information about Bush and she now understands why people dislike him.

(23) 5 Books that scared people into stop reading them



Halloween Día de muertos is coming, so here’s a list of a list of creepy books that unnerved people.

1. Misery by Stephen king
Psychological horror thriller from famed author about the author of a best seller series, a deranged fan and their encounter after the first suffers an accident.

2. The Radium Girls by Kate Moore
Based on a true story, about the female factory workers who contracted radiation poisoning from paint, their gruesome deaths, the cover up the factories tried to do and the legal battles they fought.

3. House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
Describing this book is really hard, with an unconventional page layout, it makes you take notes, read it in a non linear way, being a case of ergodic literature. The story revolves around a house that on the outside looks normal but on the inside it stretches and changes inexplicably and how it ensnares all its inhabitants.

4. Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk
An anthology of 23 short stories connected by a main plot, they contain wide motifs such as sexual deviance, death and existentialism.

5. A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
A classic in literature from 1962, set in an undisclosed future, following Alex, the leader of a gang that partakes in extreme violence, his experiences with the authority and his forced reforming using questionable techniques.

The View: Susan Rice, Impeachapalooza, Hot Topics

Fmr National Security Advisor Susan Rice



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nagk-DcTAIY

Two more clips behind the cut [Spoiler (click to open)]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41nMzTb1bec



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbVlzCMql4A


Susan Rice served as the 24th U.S. National Security Advisor from 2013 to 2017. Previously, Rice was on the staff of the National Security Council and was the Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs during President Bill Clinton's second term. A Brookings Institution fellow, she served as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations from 2009 to 2013. The U.S. Senate confirmed her as ambassador by unanimous consent.

Rice is promoting her new book Tough Love: My Story of the Things Worth Fighting For

Summary of conversation [Spoiler (click to open)]
Starts with Turkey military attack on Syria. Talks details. Most troops on the ground were gone (but their mere presence halted a Turkish advance). Rice explains the Kurd role as US allies. US was providing training, equipment, advice, air support, but is now forbidden to intervene. We left them to the wolves. So T45 threw them under the bus for his personal gain. ISIS prisoners will be released or escape, and now threaten us anywhere, including the US soil. It will embolden and refortify ISIS. T45 traded our national security for what /rhetorical. Congress can stop him, where there is also outrage. Moves to impeachment. What is more dangerous than allowing terrorists to come at us at their will.

Meghan bashes Obama. Rice responds. Rice points out the fight is against ISIS. Obama deployed forces to Syria against ISIS, which T45 has pulled out. Rice thought it was a mistake to ask Congress to use force in Syria (which Congress denied Obama). Feels she was right about the politics, but she was wrong about the policy, e.g. using diplomacy, to get chemical weapons. Force needs to be used to produce a tangible result, getting chemical weapons out of the conflict area. It occurred when Obama took action. It did not occur – twice – when Tr/mp took action. Meghan goes back to Aleppo, compares to WWII. Sunny asks clarification. Rice said if Congress had agreed to force, then Obama would’ve taken that action. Rice says Obama chose not to insert US in a local civil war [fighting another country’s internal civil war never ends well, see Vietnam], but he did choose to fight ISIS.

Joy recaps her frustration, lists latest news. Rice says GOP is standing up to defend our allies, the Kurds, but wants them to stand up and defend the Constitution. Rice says purpose of impeachment is to cleanse the office and bring back honor and dignity. Joy asks about Biden and Hunter. Rice says T45 takes his own weakness – corruption – and turning it into an attack on his opponents. Says Biden was the poorest Senator and no one accused him of corruption [his tax returns also reveal he’s not that wealthy, whereas T45 refuses and fights to release his tax returns]. Abby says Rice’s father used to be her boss. Brings up her son, who loves T45, was student leader of RNC at Stanford. Rice says he’s a traditional conservative and rejects some of the characterization about her son from the Post. Raised their kids to be independent thinkers. One is conservative and one is liberal, jokes that dinner table can be complicated.

Jason Weaver , singing voice of young Simba, turned down $2m for royalties




- Jason Weaver, singing voice of 1994's "The Lion King" Simba, recently revealed he turned down a $2 million flat rate for the role in favor of royalties, with help from his mother.


- Weaver" I remember it was like $2 million", You gotta remember, they're coming off of " Beauty and the Beast" . They're coming off of " Aladdin" Disney had bread".

- Weaver's mother negotiated the royalties deal and Weaver walked away with $100,000 upfront and a share of the royalties.

- Weaver " Disney had a reputation for re- releasing stuff. I think at the time they had put out " Sleeping Beauty" and some of their old catalog from when Walt Disney was alive. They were releasing that stuff when they were releasing the new Disney stuff, so my mother was able to see the playing field and go," Wait a minute, this is going to make a lot of money over time , so what happens when my son turns 40? Is he going to be able to get a check for this when they eventually re- release this".

- Weaver says he has more than made up in royalties for turning down the $2 million

Mindy Kaling Says TV Academy Tried to Remove Her 'Office' Producing Credit




Mindy Kaling is one of the actresses featured in Elle's Women in Hollywood issue. In her interview, Mindy Kaling calls out the Television Academy for trying to remove her producer's credit on the Office.

Kaling says that the Television Academy told her they would drop her from the producers list because there were too many producers listed for the show. If Kaling was dropped from the list, that meant that she would be ineligible to accept an Emmy if the show had won for best comedy series.

"They made me, not any of the other producers, fill out a whole form and write an essay about all my contributions as a writer and a producer," Kaling said. "I had to get letters from all the other male, white producers saying that I had contributed, when my actual record stood for itself."

ToysRUs Returns in partnership with Target.com


Not enough for the Bullseye retailer with poor worker happiness to partner with ShopDisney for mini Disney stores in their stores (Say stores again), but now it's bringing a friend back from the dead.

Toys R Us, which closed every store in the US last year, a typical combination of inability to adapt and corporate greed, has long been in the works for a comeback, and today is that day...somewhat.

Starting (yesterday), toysrus.com is now functional again (And looks a hell of a lot better than their old website). However, when you click 'check out', you are taken to Target.com to complete the purchase. In the case of the Inside Out Funko Pop Rainbow Unicorn, the seller is not Target, but trusted third party ToyWiz.

(Also, it retails for like 20$ on ShopDisney).

So it's a bit like Rakuten Marketplace, in that it's simply a front to take you to the real store.

A ton of companies are getting sued over the X-Men cartoon theme

Marvel, Disney TV, Amazon, and Apple are getting sued over the iconic X-Men animated series theme song.

A Florida lawyer respresenting late composer Gyorgy Vukan claims that the "most iconic soundtrack of any animated series in the 1990s" rips off the composer's theme to the Hungarian series Linda from the mid-80s. "The subject, the tempo, the harmonization and the sounding is identical."

The suit states the X-Men theme contributed a substantial amount to the success of the X-Men, including the billion-dollar film franchise, which is why Disney is included in the suit. Amazon and Apple were added because the show streams on both companies video platforms. Warner Chappell Music, UMG Recordings, and Saban execs Haim Saban, Ron Wasserman and Shuki Levi are also included.

The suit is demanding a jury trial and seeks unspecificed damages and further reproducing/distribution of the work.

Both themes are below so make up your own mind:

Football WAG Coleen Rooney says fellow WAG Rebekah Vardy is selling fake stories of her to The Sun

The stories include: going to Mexico to try and manipulate the gender of future babies in vitro, Coleen returning to her reality TV career and their mansion flooding. Coleen found out by doing some amazing Poirot-esque detective work:

Stumptown S1x04 Promo - "Family Ties"



Promo summary:
Dex faces off against Artie Banks to take down wealthy real estate mogul Randall Tapper. Meanwhile, Detective Cosgrove leads an investigation to find Wallace Kane, a prisoner on the loose.

Icymi here is the premise of the show [Spoiler (click to open)]
Dex Parios is a sharp-witted military veteran, who struggles to get by and take care of her younger brother, in Portland, Oregon. She also struggles with PTSD from her time as a Marine in Afghanistan, where she worked in military intelligence until she was injured by an explosion which killed her childhood sweetheart and former lover. Burdened by heavy gambling debts and unable to hold down a steady job, she becomes a private investigator to solve problems where the police cannot get involved. Detective Miles Hoffman [Michael Ealy] refers problems to her, and Grey McConnell [Jake Johnson], a bar owner and Dex's closest friend, provides moral support and employs her brother Ansel at his bar.


What did you think about this week's ep? That daydream of classic 1970s private eye show with the fashion and cheesy scenes. What's up with Dex parents? The story was decent, the scenes with Dex and Artie were good. The main cast seems to be getting in a groove. And sexy time with Dex and Hoffman! I was wondering when Sue Lynn would reappear. More of her and that dynamic please. Idk about this Kane guy but it doesn't look good. Also Jake Johnson looks better without his neckbeard. This show is a fun mid-week popcorn diversion.
