Matrix party ‘disguised as film shoot’ to bypass German Covid rules





German tabloids report an alleged "Matrix 4" wrap party disguised itself as a film shoot to bypass health safety laws.

Production on “The Matrix 4” in Berlin is coming to an end with a bit of controversy over reports that claim the cast and crew allegedly threw a wrap party under the disguise of a film shoot in order to bypass the country’s coronavirus health safety rules. Guests came as "extras", say report.

According to a report from The Guardian and German outlet Bild, approximately 200 people attended “The Matrix” party on the evening of November 11 at the legendary Babelsberg film studios, located in Potsdam about a half hour from central Berlin. Keanu Reeves was reportedly in attendance.

ONTD Original: Five reasons Dash & Lily is the new cute Netflix show you should watch


Based on the 2010 novel Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn, Dash & Lily follows the adventures of two teenage New Yorkers giving the other various challenges through a red notebook that they pass back and forth to each other without ever meeting.

Netflix created an eight half-hour episode series just in time for the holiday season. I binged the series last night and was surprised this didn’t get any kind of trailer post here, and I want to discuss (because lbr ontder’s don’t read, unless it’s in the comments).


1. Christmas in New York in the before times.




Corona hew? Social distancing where? Dash & Lily is set in the time from before a global pandemic swept the world, and turned most of the sensible population into stay at home hermits. Who would’ve thought it would just be nice to see people walking around without masks, and just living life without a pandemic care in the world.

Disclaimer: No I am not a shill for Netflix, but if they wanna pay me for writing this DM me Netflix pls, corona affected my coin this year.

Should Streaming Platforms Auto-Skip the Credits?


If you've ever watched something on a streaming service, you have probably experienced the whiplash that comes when a movie ends and another one starts after a five or ten second grace period, during which you have to press the "cancel" button if you'd like to continue listening to the end credit song or seeing who played that guy. Comedian Mike Birbiglia takes issue with process, saying that the credits being skipped are part of the experience, and should be played through rather than skipped by default. A lot of people agreed, including a few notable names:

But there were plenty of responses to his tweet that expressed the view that no one cares about credits, and that while they may be important to actors and creatives, they're just not important to the average viewer.

Birbiglia then proceeded to offer up a suggestion that would solve the issue:


Should streamers play the credits?

Always play them
45(6.6%)
Play by default, with the option to skip
465(67.9%)
Skip by default, with the option to play
64(9.3%)
Only if there's an end credits scene
47(6.9%)

What do you think, ONTD? Should they let the credits play, or are you moving on once the show's over??

Brad Pitt Wins Case Against Woman Who Was Catfished by Fake Brad Pitt

BradPitt-GettyImages-1158782727.jpg

A court in Texas threw out a bizarre lawsuit filed by a woman who was scammed by a man pretending to be Brad Pitt. After being catfished, she filed a lawsuit against the real Brad Pitt for $100,000.

Here is the weird-ass saga:

  • It started in 2018, when Kelli Christina was contacted by someone claiming to be Brad Pitt. He requested that she organize fundraisers for Make It Right, which is Pitt's charitable organization. "Brad Pitt" then charged the woman $40,000 to make an appearance. But when the fundraiser came, he wouldn't show up. Christina even discussed marriage with the scammer.

  • She sued the real Pitt for failing to protect his fans from scammers. She is dedicated to pursuing the lawsuit because "she was so disappointed that the real Pitt didn’t help her" when she reported the fraud to him:

  • “Brad Pitt ignored all [my problems] [for] a year and a half. He was contacted at Make It Right, Plan B Entertainment, his Los Angeles home and his Beverly Hills attorney the summer of 2019. All problems [were] ignored and yet it’s his name and reputation.”

Real Housewives of Potomac 5.16 "We Had a Kumbaya Moment, Now Shut the Fuck Up" Recap



- "Jamal lives in the phone." 🤳🏽 Another iconic quote from our fave feud flip flopping wig shifting auntie Kurn. She knew Blu Cantrell 1 wasn't buying no jewelry for herself without a man there, so surmised she was with Juanderful Juan
- Despite her opening tagline, Blu Cantrell 2/Her Brokeness is still getting played
- the talking heads about Ashley's toboggan transportation antics sent OP
- for some gawd forsaken reason, E! has infiltrated our viewing enjoyment. Why are they here? OP is on her Strom Thurmond to challenge this integration
- The Nosy Sugar Baby is befuddled why Skippy Concealer Candiace is talking to her about motherhood
- Ashley's bazungas look phenomenal in that dress, she still turrible though
- "okay clipboard!"
- no trying to be an asshole, but how in the hell does Candiace think getting a dog and her wig glue resiliency against Hurricane Monique give any indicator she'll be a good mom? She needs to get away from her actual mom, probably to work some shit out.
- the pageant gorls go at it about their feud pre-Baby Dean
- Blu Cantrell 1 and 2 is letting Ashley have it and OP is here for it (ready, early, on time, homework turned in)
- The Nosy Sugar Baby and the Green Eyed Bandits continue their third installment of these toilet pranks. Pizza in Great Falls, #freeuncleben, and now Along Came a Spider
- watching them watch the monitor for this prank - Housewivesception
- Her Brokeness reviews the Embezzled photoshoot pics so she can escape the clutches of the IRS
- Kurns hates the dick of the Black Broke Gates!
- Mar-A-Lago Monique ain't nowhere to be seen and still makes an appearance. She asked Ashley to serve as a character assassin against Candiace (mostly notably the buttaknife incident). Robyn was laying down fax, hunny.

Rebel Wilson talks about her weight loss on The Drew Barrymore Show



Rebel says that she turned 40 this year and hadn't really focused on her health before this.
Thinks she suffers from emotional eating, and she used it as a way to cope with the stress of being famous.
Her diet was mainly all carbs, and she needed to eat a lot more protein.
Has lost 40 lbs this year so far, and plans to lose a few more, but loves her curves and won't go too skinny.
