ABC orders music themed Bachelor spin-off "Listen to Your Heart"



The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart" unites two of the most emotionally powerful forces in human life: music and love, as 20 single men and women embark on an incredible journey to find love through music. Singing well-known songs, both individually and as couples, they will look to form attractions through the melodies, find and reveal their feelings and ultimately, fall in love.

The eligible bachelors and bachelorettes will meet and explore their relationships while living together and going on Bachelor-style dates that focus on music. Once the couples commit to each other, it will be time to take their relationship to the next level. The harmony of the couples will be tested through musical challenges, including live performances judged by some of the biggest names in the music business. Ultimately, the couples whose performances reveal their love and devotion to one another will continue to be given a chance to further their relationships until only one couple is left standing.


It premieres April 13th on ABC.

'Silence of the Lambs' Spinoff 'Clarice' a Go at CBS



The network announced Sunday that it has made a series commitment to a Silence of the Lambs TV spinoff called Clarice.

The drama, which technically still needs a formal series pickup to move forward, comes from Star Trek franchise producer Alex Kurtzman and his Secret Hideout production company.

Kurtzman will write the script alongside Jenny Lumet, who is a co-showrunner on Star Trek: Discovery. Aaron Baiers will co-executive produce.

The potential series is set in 1993, a year after the events of The Silence of the Lambs. Clarice is a look into the untold personal story of Clarice Starling — the role made famous by Jodie Foster in the 1991 movie — as she returns to the field to pursue serial murderers and sexual predators while navigating the high-stakes political world of Washington, DC.

An actress for the role has not been announced. It is expected to air in the 2020-21 broadcast season.

CBS All Access shared the news via Twitter, announcing that The Ready Room will air weekly, immediately following each new Star Trek: Picard episode on Thursdays.

Star Trek: Picard debuts Jan. 23 on CBS All Access, with a second season already in the works.

Oscars are hella white (again), and here are some big snubs & surprises from today's nominations



I mean, it was expected ages ago that the Oscar nods would be this white and male, but actually seeing it go down... yikes. Anyway, here are some of the biggest surprises and snubs from today's nominations (you can find those here).

-- The biggest snub, as most noticed, was Jennifer Lopez for Hustlers. She got the GG and SAG nominations and those are precursors for an Oscar nod, though not always guaranteed.
-- On a more hilarious side, Disney's meh Frozen 2 was snubbed in the animated feature category, when the Mouse House was expecting to dominate in the category. The still have Toy Story 4 in the mix.
-- In the lead actor category, both Christian Bale (Ford v Ferrari - which ended up getting a BP nod) and Taron Egerton (Rocketman) were both snubbed in an already-packed category. I say they're snubbed because they both got GG/SAG/BAFTA nods before this.
-- If you're on Twitter right now, you'll notice both Awkwafina (who won the GG for 'The Farewell') and Lupita Nyong'o (Us) trending. Why - because they were snubbed as well in a category that is almost entirely white. Thank Cynthia Erivo (who actually got two nods this year - actress and song for the terrible 'Harriet') for breaking that.
-- Finally, we'll look at best director. Or, you know, the annual sausagefest. You might notice that Greta Gerwig is also trending on twitter this fine morning, and for that reason. Yet again we got another year where it's five men up for director. The surprise here is how Todd Phillips' hack ass got the fifth spot when there were more deserving nominees.

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels trailer



A spiritual descendant of the original Penny Dreadful story set in Victorian-era London, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels opens in 1938 Los Angeles, a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (Nathan Lane) become embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city's first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart. Penny Dreadful: City of Angels will premiere on Sunday, April 26 at 10/9c only on SHOWTIME.

The article mentioned in the statement has info that:

- apparently according to Harry, William was "insufficiently welcoming towards Meghan",

- brothers relationship has not recovered,

- H&M are tired of “constantly being told their place”,

- allegedly Meghan wants to leave because things are not working out for her,

- Harry is under pressure to choose,

- Meghan was seen without any rings (including her wedding ring) while visiting The National's Dorfman Theatre in London and taking her flight back to Canada.

Succession’s Brian Cox: ‘I was touched up by Princess Margaret’



+ Brian Cox talks Succession, politics, his love for cannabis and an odd royal encounter.
+ On the love for Logan Roy and how it mirrors current politics: “It’s astonishing how much audiences love Logan’s cruelty. I think it’s a reflection of the state we’re in. All of our moral certainties have gone by the wayside with the elections, with the Etonian twit in the UK and the pink Pinocchio in the White House, and you feel you can’t do anything about it. It’s like with the impeachment: it’s so clear that [Trump] is a bad man, but the Republican senators say: ‘No, it’s not this, it’s that’, but it’s all bollocks. He’s a horrible human being and he’s fucking everything up and he doesn’t give a shit.”

War of the Windsors: Queen Elizabeth II confirms Harry and Meghan will move to Canada



Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family.

My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family. Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.

Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives.

It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK.

These are complex matters for my family to resolve, and there is some more work to be done, but I have asked for final decisions to be reached in the coming days.

[Sidebar SecDef Esper says he didn’t know any specific threats to Embassies. furthermore the embassies weren’t evacuated or increased security. Now we learn that it was in play for ~ 7 mos that if an American died, which then we saw some speculative vagueries around a defense contractor being killed as the alleged impetus. Mmm hmm surejan.gif distraction for Impeachment]. And 176 innocent victims ultimately suffered the consequences.]

Sunny switches to Iran, member of Gang of 8. Should be briefed on intelligence and national security matters. T45 lied that 4 embassies were potentially under attack. Adam says lies, lies, and more lies. Pompeo already said they didn’t know precisely where or when, which contradicts the lies that T45 claims, and reveals Pompeo doesn’t understand definition of imminent. Risk has gone up not down. Panel all say the people on the plane would still be alive. Joy wonders why he didn’t tell Gang of 8 but he told Senator Graham on the golf course. Adam says it’s embarrassing the things he says and does. Glad House passed War process checks. T45 is impulsive and no regard for consequences to his actions. Joy also says T45 doesn’t even know what he’s doing. [Fun fact, after assassinating General, T45 polls did not go up]. Whoopi brings up plane again. Adam says maximum pressure campaign on Iran has failed miserably. Americans don’t want a war, and Congress hasn’t authorized a war. Whoopi says sometimes the House seems to take an awful long time to work through the administrative process (re/subpoena). Adam starts to answer, but they have to break for commercial.

Adult film star Kaleb Stryker is asking Shawn Mendes for permission to play him in a XXX parody film




Men.com recently revealed that Shawn Mendes was the most searched name on its website in 2019. And thus, adult film star and Shawn “look-alike” Kaleb Stryker is asking Mendes directly for permission to play him in a XXX parody video on its website.

“Even though [Mendes] is obviously not featured in any Men videos, our members took it upon themselves to verify that fact by entering his name in the Men.com search bar,” a studio representative explained in an official statement.

“Kaleb was intrigued by the idea of developing and starring in a Shawn Mendes porn parody, guitar and all, truly giving our members what they want!”

“I just found out my look-alike Shawn Mendes is the most popular search on Men.com in 2019, so that means I’m not the only one crushing on him,” says Stryker in a Men video posted to YouTube. “So, Shawn, what do you say we give the people what they want? If you’re cool with it, I can play you as a role on Men.com, and we can make everyone’s fantasies come true. So what do you think?”

In 2016, the adult film website released a Bieber parody starring Johnny Rapid after the studio publicly offered the Biebs $2 million to star in a video himself.

He took a pretty big swing at the bag (which actually contained the Baby Yoda puppet)and was then informed by series creator Jon Favreau of the the hefty price tag of the world’s adopted tiny green son.

* “They called ‘cut’ and Jon, who was watching on a monitor in his office, came down and said, ‘I just want to let you know that this is the hero and it costs, like, $5 million. So while I want you to hit it, I just want you to know that.’”

Joaquin Phoenix Reveals How Brother River's Death Impacted Him in Rare Interview




Joaquin Phoenix sat down with Anderson Cooper for a rare interview on 60 Minutes where he talked about his brother’s death back in 1993.

River was only 23 when he died of a drug overdose outside of The Viper Room in 1993. Joaquin was 19 and he with his brother at the time.

Joaquin was also joined by his entire family and they discussed the effect River's passing has had on them. Joaquin talks about how invasive the press was and how it impacted the family's grief process.



Joaquin told Anderson that it was River who introduced him to acting and that he feels River's death has impacted his all of his movies.

“I feel like in virtually every movie that I made, there was a connection to River in some way,” Joaquin said. “And I think that we’ve all felt his presence and guidance in our lives in numerous ways.”

AJ and the Queen dropped on Netflix this weekend

... and the reviews are something






Sources: [1] [2] [3]

[My thoughts:] It was awful, and the kid was mostly insufferable throughout. The highlights are the guest appearances from the queens, imo Monique and Latrice really stood out to me as the most natural and entertaining.

It's fun seeing RuPaul perform and in a different element than in Drag Race but they could have accomplished it without the child, as her inclusion makes takes the tone all over the place in a bad way.

The portrayal of blindness is incredibly offensive, but I should not be expecting nuanced humanity from the creator of 2 Broke Girls

Pete Davidson and Kaia Gerber's Relationship Is ''Cooling Off'' as He Prioritizes His Mental Health

"It became very clear that he had to go and do this and couldn't wait any longer."

Another source says that Pete is in a program and he made it so that he and Kaia have little contact.

The second source also stated that Kaia is taking sometime to think about the relationship and whether or not she wants to continue seeing Pete. The source says that Kaia still cares about Pete but she is worried about him.

"What she saw happen with Pete was very concerning and scary for her... She cares about Pete and wants him to get better," the source explains. "But their future is very much up in the air."

NikkieTutorials: “I’m coming out”



“I was born in the wrong body, which means that I am transgender”

- says she’s wanted to talk about it for a while but could never figure out when the best time to do it would be.
- some people tried to blackmail her, which is what finally forced her hand.
- at the age of 6 grew her hair out and by 7/8 wore “girls clothes only”. Her mum was extra supportive, so were her teachers. Basically says that kids will be kids, which can give you an idea about some of her classmates’ reactions I guess.
- started taking hormones and “growth stoppers” at age 14. Had fully transitioned by age 19 (while already being a youtuber)
- talks about her fiancé, and how she waited to reveal this information and how she wishes she’d told him sooner. “At the point where I told him my full story, of course he was shocked, but that is a private matter that we’re dealing with, and that I’m so proud of, that we’re able to deal with”. Refers to her fiancé as special, kind-hearted, strong and inspiring.
- says that if you are in the same situation as her, and have fallen in love with someone, you have to tell them, that “it’s what they deserve”. “The sooner, the better”, she continues, but not until you feel you’re in good, safe hands.
- has a special message for those who tried to blackmail her.
- says she’s still the same person, she’s still Nikkie.
