New Books Hitting Shelves This Week


The Wife Upstairs

Meet Jane. Newly arrived to Birmingham, Alabama, Jane is a broke dog-walker in Thornfield Estates––a gated community full of McMansions, shiny SUVs, and bored housewives. The kind of place where no one will notice if Jane lifts the discarded tchotchkes and jewelry off the side tables of her well-heeled clients. Where no one will think to ask if Jane is her real name.

But her luck changes when she meets Eddie Rochester. Recently widowed, Eddie is Thornfield Estates’ most mysterious resident. His wife, Bea, drowned in a boating accident with her best friend, their bodies lost to the deep. Jane can’t help but see an opportunity in Eddie––not only is he rich, brooding, and handsome, he could also offer her the kind of protection she’s always yearned for.

Yet as Jane and Eddie fall for each other, Jane is increasingly haunted by the legend of Bea, an ambitious beauty with a rags-to-riches origin story, who launched a wildly successful southern lifestyle brand. How can she, plain Jane, ever measure up? And can she win Eddie’s heart before her past––or his––catches up to her?

Original Black Eyed Peas Member Kim Hill Responds to Will.i.Am



Will.i.am thinks their success is the reason they aren’t considered a “black” group.

“In 2004, Black Eyed Peas, we were just trying to get on. I’m a Black dude, but when you think of Black Eyed Peas, we go so big that…and it hurts, it still hurts a little bit that we’re not considered a Black group because we got that big. When you think of Black Eyed Peas…it’s no longer urban or Black culture, which is…it’s not good for the black community that Black Eyed Peas is not looked at as a Black group because we had international success."

The music group Black Eyed Peas was formed in 1995. Kim Hill was replaced with Fergie after the group drifted from their roots and aimed for a more pop sound and aesthetic. Hill responds to Will.I.Am.

“You’re not in those Black roots anymore. So, I don’t understand how you’re not even going to talk about the Black girl that you had in your group and you’re going to skip to 2004 and you say, ‘I don’t understand how the Black community isn’t embracing us,’ For you to make that statement as if the onus is on the Black community to celebrate you and the band when you didn’t celebrate us. It’s almost like there’s this cultural smudging.”

Differences Between The "Tiny Pretty Things" Show And Novels


source

well that show was a trip, and pretty different from the books

5/17 Differences:

- The Archer School of Ballet is set in Chicago in the TV show instead of New York, like in the book.

- Neveah was a pretty different character

her name in the books was Gigi (Giselle) and she had a different family background

- In the show, the French dancer Nabil has a few more redeeming qualities

and he was not a muslim in the books, the show added that whole Islamophobia angle

- Bette is still the perfect ballerina, but with a twist.

the "gets boyfriend with an adorable family who brings her back to life after her ordeals." was June's story in the books

- So many naked butts.

Johnny Depp fails to get $100M countersuit tossed; Amber Heard now allowed to sue for defamation



More bad news for embattled star Johnny Depp. Just weeks after being found guilty by the UK High Court of being a "wife beater", a judge in his Virginia case against Heard has denied Depp's request to have her $100M countersuit tossed out.

Fairfax County Judge Bruce White says Depp's accusations that Heard's claims of abuse during the couple’s marriage was an elaborate hoax have the ability to 'injure Heard's reputation'. Therefore he is allowing the actress to countersue Depp for defamation.

Heard's $100M case will now head to trial later this year, while Depp's Virginia trial begins on May 3rd.
