Niecy Nash announces her wedding to singer Jessica Betts

Niecy Nash announced her wedding to rock & soul singer Jessica Betts. IMDB tells me that Jessica guest starred in an episode of Niecy's show Claws in 2018, which is where I am assuming they both met.

Niecy was married to her husband Jay Tucker for nearly 10 years. She filled for divorce in October of last year, which was finalized in March. Before that Niecy was married to Don Nash for 13 years.


Hailey Bieber is teaching Justin Bieber about skincare

Hailey Bieber talked to Elle about her love for skincare, and how she helped husband Justin clear up his acne.

“Justin was struggling a bit with acne. I tried to help him clear that and get that under control and it is working. It’s gone, and he’s really happy."

She continued, “I give him all of the tips that I use personally, and I’ve given him products that I use. I’m always big on keeping your skin hydrated. It’s taken him a while, though.”

ONTD Original: Is Mariah Carey the Queen of Covers?

So, last night i ended in a Mariah Carey Ballad rabbit hole and realized that she is the Queen of Covers and that no one can OWN a song the way her beautiful voice does. There's a talent to that, every song that she has covered (to me) ends up being better than the original.

Here's the prove. I decided to remove the xmas songs cuz everybody makes xmas covers.

Oh god: GOT Showrunners to adapt 'Three-Body Problem' Series

Today in "😐" news, the shit-studded duo of Benioff and Weiss are at it again with Netflix.

The would be "Confederate" showrunners are now working to produce The Three Body Problem series into a series for Netflix, along with Alexander Woo.

“Liu Cixin’s trilogy is the most ambitious science-fiction series we’ve read, taking readers on a journey from the 1960s until the end of time, from life on our pale blue dot to the distant fringes of the universe,” Benioff and Weiss said. “We look forward to spending the next years of our lives bringing this to life for audiences around the world.”

And in that final year, they're probably going to take a dump on it. Then again, I never did watch much GOT, but if they were gunning to make "Confederate", I'm a little concerned as to how they'll handle an Asian cast.

Also I have never heard of this series and I need something new to read.



There are now Biden/Harris Campaign Signs in New Horizons

It's a way to engage players which, great, love the creativity, but...yanno.

The Unraveling of Cassidy Holmes <-- Written by an ontd member!

Cassidy Holmes isn't just a celebrity.

She is “Sassy Gloss,” the fourth member of the hottest pop group America has ever seen. Hotter than Britney dancing with a snake, hotter than Christina getting dirrty, Gloss was the pop act that everyone idolized. Fans couldn't get enough of them, their music, and the drama that followed them like moths to a flame—until the group’s sudden implosion in 2002. And at the center of it all was Sassy Cassy, the Texan with a signature smirk that had everyone falling for her.

But now she's dead. Suicide.

The world is reeling from this unexpected news, but no one is more shocked than the three remaining Glossies. Fifteen years ago, Rose, Merry, and Yumi had been the closest to Cassidy, and this loss is hitting them hard. Before the group split, they each had a special bond with Cassidy—truths they told, secrets they shared. But after years apart, each of them is wondering: what could they have done?

Author Becky Albertalli, "Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda" aka "Love, Simon", Comes Out as Bisexual

YA author Becky Albertalli, whose book Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda was adapted to screen as Love, Simon a few years ago, has come out as bisexual in a Medium essay: "Anyway, all of this is to say: I’m bi. Sorry it took me so long to get here. But then again, at least the little red coming out book I needed was already on my shelf (in about thirty different languages)."

Her essay also goes over the online scrutiny she's faced leading up to this and that this is not about validation.

ONTD Original: What does Reneesme from Twilight look like now?

In 2011, the cinematic masterpiece 'Breaking Dawn' was released and introduced Bella and Edward's freak CGI baby, Reneesme, to us. Mackenzie Foy, who was 11 at the time, played Reneesme when she was a child, and they aged her using CGI technology to an adult. (These adult scenes are necessary because Bella's ex, Jacob, falls in love with Reneesme when she is an infant.) Now, almost ten years on, how well does the CGI match to the real thing?

Kanye West says God wanted him to interrupt Taylor Swift at the VMAs

Kanye West went on Cannon Class and says God wanted him to interrupt Taylor Swift at the VMAs. "If God didn't want me to run on stage and say, 'Beyoncé had the best video,' he wouldn't have sat me in the front row. I would've been sitting in the back. He wouldn't have made it the first award. And [He] wouldn't have made it so ridiculous of an idea 'cause I had never heard of this person before that night. And 'Single Ladies' is like one of the greatest videos of all time.... And I was only drinking Hennessy because I didn't want to go to the awards show 'cause it was a set-up!"

ONTD Original: Monthly Movie Challenge - September

Another 10-task challenge. You obviously don’t need to do all 10 tasks, choose as many as you want, but I figured it gives you some variety and allows you to pick and choose movies that fit your taste but also maybe lead you to watch something you wouldn’t normally seek out. For each task, you can pick whatever movie fits within the guidelines, I've added links to help you out. I tried to add tasks that would allow you to get movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and/or Hulu – but there’s also Kanopy and Hoopla (both of which you can get free access through your library or university). Have a different movie for each task – that is, don’t have the same movie for task 2 and task 6.

MotoGP driver Miguel Oliveira is engaged to his step-sister, Andreia Pimenta.

Pimenta is the daughter of Oliveira's father's second wife.

The pair have known each other since they were 13 and have had a secret relationship together for 11 years.

Now, Oliveira has announced their engagement.

Oliveira told Manuel Luis Goucha:

“Before love there was a great friendship. We grew up together. At some point we realized that it was more than a friendship, it is a very strong love. We were going to get married this year, but that weekend I had a race and we had to postpone it next year.”


Brandy and Monica Deliver Us Some Classics in Quarantine on VERZUZ

We love a collaboration between talented black women. On the last day of August 90s teen queens Brandy and Monica teamed up to revisit each other's discography on VERZUZ. There's some singing, a little backstory, lots of nostalgia and a cameo from law enforcement. They both look ah-meee-zing! The 3 hour shindig is still available and during the stream about 1.4 million viewers tuned to watch.

Big Sean Says He Never Would’ve Made ‘IDFWU’ If He Knew Ex Naya Rivera Would Die So Tragically

In a new interview with New York Magazine, Big Sean, 32, said he would have “never made” the track “I Don’t Fuck With You” had he known ex-fiancée Naya Rivera’s life would come to such a tragic and sudden end.

“That’s a tough question to answer because I’m still processing a lot of that,” Sean said when asked if he regrets writing and recording the song, which also features E-40. “I don’t feel comfortable talking about it because I want to respect her.”

“She’s made such an impact on people, and she’s done so many great things in her life and her career that it was hurtful to even have that [song] be associated with her,” Sean continued, explaining that the song “wasn’t a diss to her” and that he had played it for Rivera.

“She knew about it, and she liked it,” he said. “We had a breakup that was very public, and we were young and we forgave each other and moved on from that. If I would have known something this tragic would have happened, I would have never made the song.”


Andy Cohen Shares Shirtless Throwback Photos of Anderson Cooper to “Piss Him Off”

Andy Cohen, 52, took to Instagram on Tuesday to share two shirtless throwback photos of his buddy Anderson Cooper, 53. The photos were taken before the COVID-19 pandemic when the two were on vacation together.

“If it were a normal year, I’d be on vacation with my pal...threatening to post shirtless pics of him,” the annoying WWHL host captioned the post. “Well, it’s 2020 and I’m sitting on my deck so I figured I’d just post without asking and piss him off!” Cohen added with the hashtag “Silverfox.”

This isn’t the first time Andy Cohen tried to embarrass his friend. During a game on WWHL in 2017, guest Olivia Wilde asked the guys questions about each other and they each had to answer at the same exact time.

When Wilde asked what Cooper’s biggest turn-on is, Cooper quickly responded saying, “I’m not even gonna answer.”

Cohen, on the other hand, blurted out: “Latinos!” Anderson immediately started blushing.

Genuine question for ONTD. What did Anderson do wrong?

ONTD Reading Challenge: September - Old Man Yelling at Cloud


Hello, guys, it’s time for our September Reading Challenge! This month, our task is to read a book about / with a prominent character who is a curmudgeon: a crotchety, grumpy, cantankerous character (regardless of age or sex).

We’ve gathered some suggestions in this post, but as usual, feel free to pick something else that fits the prompt.

A Man Called Ove (Fredrik Backman)
A grumpy yet loveable man finds his solitary world turned on its head when a boisterous young family moves in next door.

Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon, the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him the bitter neighbor from hell, but must Ove be bitter just because he doesn't walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time?

Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove's mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents' association to their very foundations.Collapse )

The Feminist Trope, Explained

For many years, feminists have been dismissed, mocked, and outright vilified onscreen. But more recent depictions of feminist characters on TV shows like Mrs. America, Downton Abbey, and Sex Education increasingly reflect that the "feminist" label is at last being claimed as aspirational, cool, and even necessary. Still, even this embrace of the cause for gender equality has brought new perils, like co-option and commodification. Here’s our Take on the feminist trope, and why it’s a no-brainer that we should all be feminists.


Are you a feminist?? // Do you think feminist gets a good representation on tv/film??

AMC cancels NOS4A2.

'The cabler has canceled the series, an adaptation of Joe HIll's 2013 novel, after two seasons. The news comes just over a week after what turned out to be the show's final season wrapped on Aug. 23.

NOS4A2 stars Ashleigh Cummings as Vic McQueen, a gifted young woman who discovers she has a supernatural ability to find lost things. Her ability puts her on a collision course with Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto), an immortal who feeds on the souls of children and deposits what remains of them in Christmasland — a twisted place of Manx's imagination where every day is Christmas and unhappiness is against the law. Vic tries to defeat Manx and rescue his victims without losing her mind or falling victim to him.'


Amber Heard accuses Johnny Depp of ‘smear campaign’ in $100M countersuit

A verdict on the case in the UK is expected any day. There, he sued The Sun who called him a "wife beater".

However, according to new court documents, Amber is countersuing ex-husband Johnny Depp in the US trial for $100 million

In her suit, Amber says that Depp’s US lawsuit merely continues his “abuse and harassment”. She says he called her “the most horrendous of names,” including “c–t,” “whore,” “disgusting pig” and “inhuman scum filled suckfish.”

“Not content to let the jury decide this lawsuit, Mr. Depp and/or his agents acting on his behalf have orchestrated a false and defamatory smear campaign,”

He controlled “dozens if not hundreds” of bots and “social media accounts created specifically for the purpose of targeting” her.

Depp even “initiated, coordinated, overseen and/or supported and amplified” two petitions to get her booted from the “Aquaman” movie as well as being a spokeswoman for L’Oreal.

The fillings claims that “This stream of false and defamatory accusations against Ms Heard is all an attempt to ruin her life and career, simply because she was a victim of domestic abuse and violence at the hands of Mr. Depp, and had the audacity and temerity to finally come forward to end” it.

In other news, Johnny Depp has requested that his US defamation lawsuit trial against ex-wife Amber Heard be delayed due to the upcoming filming of Fantastic Beasts 3.
