He was in the middle of having a threesome orgy with his brother and a woman two women he had met on Snapchat just the day before when the wife stormed in armed with a pistol and two knife-wielding friends -- she had been able to track his whereabouts by logging into his Snapchat account. She held the gun (which had a round in the chamber, safety disengaged) to his head, while one of the friends was swinging their knife at the women.

When cops arrived on scene, they were found outside, with him in his underwear, the gun now in his possession after he wrestled it away from her, and her chasing after him with a knife.

The wife and her friends were arrested and she was was booked for 'burglary of a residence with intent to commit aggravated assault with a deadly weapon' and has since bonded out. A restraining order has also been issued against her.

Thomas has released a statement via social media:

ONTD Indie Release Guide Graphic.png

As the weeks progress, it’s clear that studios are becoming more and more receptive to sending their new releases directly to digital release: this week’s post is entirely new releases, many of which are premiering in virtual cinemas. Virtual cinemas are great because they are rentals helping to support both independent films and independent theaters, so please look for your local indie theater in the listings if you decide to check one of those films out!

The films listed are from studios other than the “Big Six” - Paramount, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Universal, Columbia/Sony and Disney. Some releases are streaming on popular services like Netflix and Hulu, some are rentals in cooperation with location theaters, and some are VOD - that is, available to rent or buy on digital services like Apple, Amazon and Google Play. Check out the posts from the past few weeks for more movies that may have already come to VOD: May 1st, April 24th, and April 17th.

Who Were The Fifteenth & Sixteenth Contestants To Be Voted Out Of Survivor: Winners At War?

The fifteenth and sixteenth people to be voted out of Survivor: Winners At War and sent to Edge Of Extinction were...

[Spoiler (click to open)]Jeremy and Nick.

When everyone returned from Tribal, Jeremy handed the 50/50 advantage back to Michele. They both wanted Ben out, but didn’t know who else to trust since Nick was being his usual wishy-washy self. Tony and Sarah were trying to decide between keeping Ben or keeping Jeremy.

Ben told Jeremy to ask for the 50/50 advantage back, so they could get Michele out. He then told Michele that Jeremy couldn’t be trusted because, watch, he’ll ask for the advantage again. Of course Jeremy and Michele knew what Ben was doing. Was Ben this much of an asshole his season?

I wasn’t really sure what Denise was doing at this point. She didn’t seem to have an alliance with anyone. Michele and Jeremy wanted to vote Nick out now, believing they couldn’t convince anyone else to vote Ben. Tony, Sarah and Ben also decided on Nick. But the little turd ended up winning the first individual immunity challenge of the night, so that plan was out.

At tribal, Michele played her 50/50 advantage (it was the last tribal she could play it at). The coin landed on safe. Also, there was no whispering. The votes were read, and the fifteenth person voted out of Survivor: Winners at War was Jeremy. He tossed his Fire Tokens in Michele’s bin and headed to EoE.

Over on EoE, there was one final challenge remaining. The contestants had to find a stone throne of some kind. Queen Natalie, having been on the island for 35 days, knew exactly what that meant, and found the advantage quickly.

The advantage was really a disadvantage. Whomever it was played on (anonymously) would have a disadvantage going into the next Immunity Challenge. Natalie decided to sell it to Nick for 8 tokens. Nick asked Michele for help, as he only had 6. He bought the disadvantage and played it on Ben.

Over at camp, everyone was making it pretty fucking obvious they wanted Michele gone now, and she knew she had to win the Idol. During the Immunity Challenge, Ben was given 30% more of the course than everyone else. He did catch up fast though, but Michele managed to edge him out and win.

What’s crazy here is that only Denise seemed to want to get Tony out. No one else discussed putting the votes on Tony. Are they all nuts? They must know that it’s pretty much his game to lose at this point, right? He’s got an idol too.

During Tribal, Denise told everyone that if she was the one being voted out tonight, she’d be okay with it, as it would give her a chance to eat, and then she could possibly return from EoE right after. The votes were read, and the sixteenth person voted out of Survivor: Winners at War was Nick.

After tribal, the show shifted back to Eoe. We got to see exactly how many tokens each player had. They were given a menu of sorts, where (for those who had tokens) they could choose which advantages they could buy. Natalie, having 14, was able to purchase the most (3). She also bought some peanut butter and shared it with Tyson. I had totally forgotten she also had TWO idols in her pocket. She gave one of those to Tyson as well. We were then given the gift of about 10 minutes of a recap montage, you know, because we all really needed to be reminded of how crappy and disappointing this season’s been.

Demi Lovato Releases Emo Version of "I Love Me" feat. Travis Barker

Complete with a Myspace-themed lyric video, Demi Lovato has released the official emo version of her song "I Love Me" featuring drummer Travis Barker of Blink-182.

For those of you who don't remember, Demi began her pop/rock career in 2008 as what fans lovingly refer to as "Rockvato," the punky, emo version of her musical persona. She attended Warped Tour, collaborated with We the Kings and was a HUGE fan of rock, punk & emo music.


18 (5) Times The Men Of “Friends” Were Honestly The Worst People In The World

The BuzzFeed Community was asked to help compile a list of the worst things the men of Friends (Ross, Chandler and Joey) ever did on the show. Here are 5 examples in no particular order.

1. When Ross refused to hire Sandy as Emma’s nanny because he didn’t believe it was an appropriate job for a man to have.
2. When Chandler made fun of Joey for knitting and Ross for wearing makeup instead of doing typical “masculine” activities.
3. When Joey thought the best way to sabotage his student’s chance of landing a role was to make his character gay.
4. When Ross felt uncomfortable with his son (Ben) playing with a Barbie doll, and tried forcing him to play with a G.I. Joe “action figure” instead.
5. When Ross didn’t get the annulment and legally stayed married to Rachel without telling her.

See the full list of examples at the source.

Warner Bros has a week to decide what to do with Tenet

Christopher Nolan -- who recently called movie theaters a vital part of social life -- is really hoping that his next film Tenet helps bring back audiences to theaters on July 17. Even the major theater chains are using Tenet as their kickoff film for their reopening and are hoping it helps revitalize the business.

But insiders are beginning to speculate that date may not happen and say Warner Bros has about a week to decide what to do with the films release date before it needs to start spending millions on marketing. The studio won't want to do that and then change its release.

While July still seems optimistic, cases of covid-19 are still rising around the country and many believe loosened restrictions in states like Texas and Georgia will backfire and set nationwide reopening plans back. The film has a production budget of $200 million and cannot afford to only play in areas less affected by the virus.

Even release dates for Mulan and WW84 are beginning to seem uncertain.


will you see this if it keeps its current date ontd??

IndieWire Presents: The Ultimate Summer Movie Season

Summer Movie Season 2020 was supposed to kickoff this past weekend with Black Widow. But with theaters not opening again until July (maybe even later than that), the season is DOA. To make up for it, our pal David Ehrlich at IndieWire has created the ultimate summer movie season for us to enjoy in the comfort of our homes. Films released earlier than 1991 aren't included and the schedule is based on what films came out the same weekend as our current calendar year.

Here's the lineup for May:

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery headlines the first weekend. If that isn't your bag (baby) you can check out the witches of The Craft, queen Keri Russell in Waitress, or the Austrian thriller Revanche.

Souplantation’s buffet-style restaurants closing for good due to the coronavirus

The CEO of the San Diego-based Garden Fresh Restaurants Corp. has confirmed it was permanently closing its Souplantation restaurants. The self-serve buffet chain was founded in San Diego since 1978. Its sister chain Sweet Tomatoes is also shutting down.

“The FDA had previously put out recommendations that included discontinuing self-serve stations, like self-serve beverages in fast food, but they specifically talked about salad bars and buffets,” said John Haywood, CEO of Garden Fresh. “The regulations are understandable, but unfortunately, it makes it very difficult to reopen. And I’m not sure the health departments are ever going to allow it.”

He added, “We could’ve overcome any other obstacle, and we’ve worked for eight weeks to overcome these intermittent financial challenges but it doesn’t work if we are not allowed to continue our model.”

After revealing that her newborn is called X Æ A-12, no one could tell if it was real or not, or how to even pronounce it.

But the river sailor has dissipated all doubts in a comment on her most recent Instagram post. "It’s just X, like the letter X. Then A.I. Like how you said the letter A then I," she wrote, so the name is pronounced as "X AI," like a weird take on how you’d say “Isaiah”, I guess.
