-Former "America's Next Top Model" contestant Dani Evans spoke out about renewed scrutiny of past "ANTM" moments, in particular , the time where Tyra and the panel asked her why she didn't get the gap in her teeth closed and if she really thought she could be a top model while having a gap in her teeth.
-Evans starts off by saying she was not going to speak of the incident from 15 years ago, but a message from model Slick Woods, who is known for her own gap, changed her mind. Evans says she doesn't want to defame anyone, she just wants to tell her truth.Evans was desperate to get out of her hometown and her brother said she should go out the show, she initially rebuffed the idea as it was"fake modeling" and they humiliate girls, but it was a way to get out of little rock Arkansas so she did it.
-Evans says the day all the girls were sent to the dentist she told them she just wanted them whitened. She says the dentist repeatedly asked her if she wanted the gap closed, but Evans says her mother had told her her gap was beautiful after Evans begged for braces as a child and Evans accepted that. When elimination time came, Evans says Banks asked why didn't she get her gap closed and looks off camera to a producer and Evans realized that Tyra wanted the gap closed. Evans says Banks told her would she get her gap closed if she sent her back to the dentist. Evans says she said if she didn't get the gap closed would she be sent home. This was all off camera and Evans says she thought of a compromise because she was laser focused on her goal and at the time her teeth were not a deal breaker.
-Evans says she was not concerned about the panels comments, but she was annoyed at the situation being played out for reality t.v. Evans says reading the comments made her understand the weight it may have carried for young girls that may have been watching and took the harsh words to heart. She says what matters is your self worth and it doesn't matter what anyone says and that no one can establish your self worth.
The cast of the NBC show "Smash" is reuniting for a one-night-only performance of "Bombshell the Musical" on May 20th. The streaming event will be raising money for The Actors Fund. You'll be able to stream it on People.com as well as on all of People's social media platforms at 8pm EST.
In 2015 a similar event was held to a sold-out crowd at the Minskoff Theater. EDIT: The performance actually IS this 2015 show, just with extra cast interviews.
Confirmed to be involved are Megan Hilty, Katherine McPhee, Christian Borle, Leslie Odom Jr., Jack Davenport, Jaime Cepero, Will Chase, Brian d’Arcy James, Ann Harada, Jeremy Jordan, Andy Mientus, Debra Messing, Krysta Rodriguez, and Wesley Taylor.
"Smash", which aired from 2012-2013, was a show where people pretended that Katherine McPhee could sing as well as Megan Hilty, and the two were in competition to play Marilyn Monroe in a Broadway musical about her life.
Twitter is not very happy right now with Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson, who recently called her depression "beautiful" in her cover interview with Marie Claire.
“I’ve struggled with depression since I was young — since I was 15 or 14,” she said. “That was when, with the help of professionals, I was like, ‘Oh, this is a thing I can fall into.’ But I’ve learned to find it beautiful because I feel the world.” “I guess I have a lot of complexities, but they don’t pour out of me. I don’t make it anyone else’s problem.”
Naturally, Twitter had a unanimously very big issue with this, accusing Dakota of faking depression symptoms to be quirky, fashionable or make mental illness into a personality trait.
Does your depression help you feel the world, ONTD?

Broadway star Nick Cordero has awoken from his coma. His wife Amanda Kloots shared on Instagram: "This is a long road, a very long road. We are on our way."https://t.co/qddxUJXuQ0— The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) May 12, 2020
Broadway star Nick Cordero has awoken from his coma, according to wife Amanda Kloots. Cordero had been in a medically induced coma due to COVID-19 complications since late March, and recently had his leg amputated.
Kloots clarified that her husband is still weak and "even opening his eyes and closing his eyes takes all of his energy." She added in an Instagram story "He is extremely weak, so weak that he can’t close his mouth. But he is following commands which means his mental status is coming back. This is a long road, a very long road. We are on our way."
“It was one of the wildest, most intense experiences of my life.” Here’s the oral history of “Mad Max: Fury Road,” in the cast and crew’s own words, 5 years after the film’s release. https://t.co/0YSWdGjF3L— The New York Times (@nytimes) May 12, 2020
COLIN GIBSON (production designer) I was in Namibia in 2003 when I got the call to stop spending money. I don’t know whether [the studio] decided to reroute their money back to the Iraq war, or if it was the email I got from Mel Gibson’s wife asking me how many Muslims there may or may not be in Namibia and, therefore, how interested she may or may not be in the whole family coming to visit.
HARDY Charlize arguably laid down the finest lead character in an action movie, and that credit is much deserved, in my opinion; both to her as a phenomenal talent and also to George for recognizing from the very start that it was time to pass Mel’s shoes onto Furiosa.

Ari also touches on the track Scooter made her record with Justin Beiber, "I think it's also a really literally isolating time for people mentally, too. So just, we wanted to put music out because music is the thing that makes people feel good. It's the thing that speaks most to people's spirits and we just wanted to lift them."
Grande is not releasing anything in he near future citing, "There's nothing to tell," she said. "I'm not putting one out. Talk to you when that's, I mean, I've been making stuff. I've been making a lot of stuff, but that's not where my head is at right now."
As Matt Damon remains locked down in a small Irish seaside town, his daughter tests positive for #coronavirus. Locals are fiercely protective of his privacy, as many journalists have discovered to their cost. https://t.co/O1fWNS3fzr— Bill Neely (@BillNeelyNBC) May 13, 2020
. In the film Contagion Matt Damon plays a father whose wife and son get sick, while he is immune, and looks after his daughter to keep her safe and well
. In real life Matt Damon, his wife, and their three younger daughters are in Dalkey, Ireland on lockdown
. He was filming The Last Duel so they were there before the lock-down started
. The oldest daughter is in college in NYC and she got sick with coronavirus along with her roommates, but they have fully recovered
*** Real life has a happier story line than the film life ***
. A local Ireland radio station had been trying to get him as a guest; his friend Bono of U2 made it happen
. One of the radio hosts joined a Facebook group to try and get in touch with him. The Facebook group kicked out the radio host. [lol]
Damon said that he had some worries about a surge in cases in the U.S., and about the availability of adequate testing. Referring to the similarities between pandemics on film and the coronavirus crisis, Damon said "anyone who says you couldn’t predict this, look at 'Contagion.' Ten years ago we made a movie just by talking to experts."

Ontd have you watched Contagion?
There’s a video trending that shows a woman going crazy on Mother’s Day because she had to wait longer than normal times for her food. The video shows a customer, who is not wearing a mask, attempting to force her way into the restaurant in order to get a refund.
Under Governor Tom Wolf’s orders, restaurants in Pennsylvania must either be closed or operate with a take-out or delivery system to minimize social contact during the pandemic. Customers at all establishments that remain operating, as well as their employees, are all also required to wear masks to enter.
Several employees at the restaurant give the woman several assurances that she will be refunded, but that she must wait outside. The manager then attempts to remove the customer from the door again, but the customer then strikes her, which leads to a scuffle as several other employees try to separate the two women.
In true Karen fashion, she called the cops and pretended as if she wasn't the aggressor.
Red Lobster issued an apology, “I apologize that we disappointed many of you this past weekend as you placed orders for Mother’s Day, one of the most important days of the year,” Kim Lopdrup wrote in a statement. “We received significantly more online orders than we have ever gotten in a single day, and despite preparing for a spike in demand on Mother’s Day, some of our restaurants were unable to keep up with the volume.”
why ruin mother's day? why couldn't karen go somewhere else.

I can't find out how the couple met or how long they've been together, but Diplo seems into it, so let's hope he treats her welll. However, in February, Diplo was blowing up Megan Thee Stallion's instagram after she shared pics of her being greasily mauled by G-Eazy. Let's wish them luck, though.
Congrats to the new parents!

The system is rigged by people like Jeff Bezos for people like Jeff Bezos.https://t.co/MIPy4KMymc
Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, is set to become the world’s first trillionaire thanks to the corona virus.
30 million Americans have unemployment benefits and the numbers are still growing, but the Covid 19 crisis is making the world's billionaires richer than ever.
Bezos is already the world’s richest man with personal wealth somewhere in the region of $145 billion and is enjoying a sudden surge in his fortunes as more are shopping from home than ever.
Amazon has reported $75.5 billion in revenue for the first quarter of 2020. Bezos, already the first person in history with a fortune topping $100 billion, is on course to become the first trillionaire by 2026.
The winner of Survivor:
Winners At War is..
[Spoiler (click to open)]
The final episode of the season started off with the Edge of Extinction challenge. Natalie had the most advantages, at 3, and had 2 sections where she started later, and 1 section she skipped entirely. But Wendell caught up and edged her out through most of it. It came down to Wendell, Tyson and Natalie for the final section. Natalie won, and came back into the game.
During the first immunity challenge of the night, Michele came back from a distant last to take the win.
Tony and Ben wanted Natalie out, but Tony knew she’d have some sort of an advantage, and thought it was better to vote Denise. Ben and Sarah didn’t like that plan, and thought Tony was being paranoid. Sarah felt that if Natalie had an idol, she’d tell her. Because they’re clearly besties.
Hate him or love him, Tony plays a good game and reads people very well. Unlike Ben and Sarah who think they know all and Tony’s just off the rails.
At tribal, Natalie played her idol. So did Tony. So did Ben. Since only Ben and Natalie received votes, that meant no votes counted. Maybe for the next tribal Ben and Sarah will stop calling Tony crazy. There was a re-vote, and the seventeenth person voted out was Denise.
Back at camp, Tony was rightfully upset at Ben and Sarah, blaming them for having to use all their idols. He ran into the forest and began searching for more, since there were back into play again. Natalie found one.
During the second immunity challenge of the night, it was between Tony and Ben, and Tony came up with the win.
Sarah saw Natalie’s wrist, where she was hiding her idol, and pressed her for what it was. Natalie had to show her (all while Tony was hiding in his spy shack). Tony, Sarah and Ben decided to vote for Michele, though Michele and Natalie quickly realized this. Sarah’s gender bias speech at the previous tribal seemed to work on Ben, so he offered himself as sacrifice for her. Uhhhhh.....
During the next tribal, Sarah went on another speech rant, catering to the jury like no other. The votes were read, and of course Sarah took Ben up on his weird sacrifice.
The final immunity challenge was one they’ve had before, using one hand to drop balls into a slide, where the path rotated. Every interval they’d add another ball. The first person out was Tony. Sarah was the second person out (yasss!!! Bye!!) It was a showdown between Michele and Natalie, and Natalie took another win!!
Natalie didn’t know who to pick with her to go to FTC, and who to send to the fire making challenge. Michele was killing it while practicing, while Tony was really struggling.
At tribal, Sarah, again, brought up the tears and cried to the jury. Natalie decided to bring Michele to FTC, and Sarah took this opportunity to chuckle at and humiliate these strong women. Please take your fake feminist bullshit and shove it up your Trump supporting ass, Sarah.
Tony won though, so bye Sarah. Ding dong.
At a very rainy final tribal council, Tony came under fire for breaking people’s trust and blindsiding his alliances (though after a certain point they seemed more amused by him than annoyed). Natalie was then called out for alienating some people on Edge the week leading to the challenge. She was asked about all the advantages she won on Edge, but her answers didn’t seem to impress the jury. It was shaping up to be Tony’s win, as the jury laughed with him. Rob especially was making it clear he wouldn’t be voting for Natalie.
It was a strange FTC, since the jury remained civil, honest and even gave the three of them a standing ovation.
For the first time in Survivor history, there was no live audience.
Jeff had the bin with the votes in his house, and production shipped him a set, and cameras, to film the votes privately.
The votes were read...
Second runner up, with 0 votes is... Michele
First runner up, with 4 votes is... Natalie
And the winner of season 40, Survivor: Winners at War is... Tony
