James Lafferty Reveals He Experienced a ‘Wake-Up Call’ After ‘One Tree Hill’ Ended

He portraying Nathan Scott on The CW’s One Tree Hill for 9 seasons (appearing in 182 of the series).
James Lafferty, 35, thought it’d be simple to land another role on TV. 
He quickly learned that he was wrong.

"Just coming off of One Tree Hill and just being so young on that show, and I guess, naive. I thought that when that show ended, things would be pretty easy for me, that it would be easy to work again in television. I think it was a real reality check. It was a real wake-up call as to how incredibly competitive it is out there. I probably should have been doing a lot more work earlier in my career while I was doing One Tree Hill."

Lafferty wrote and costars in Hulu comedy 'Everyone is doing great', which follows the life of a group of actors in Los Angeles who attempt to find their paths five years after starring on an incredibly successful TV series.


LVP: What Stassi Schroeder did was 'stupid', not 'racist'.

LVP went on a podcast on Monday and was asked about the four Vanderpump Rules cast members fired for racism this past June:

"It wasn’t right what they did at all, but do I think they’re racist? 1,000 percent not because I have a lot of diverse people working for me that they’ve all been working very close to for many years."

"Do I think it was a racist action? Not at all. I just think it was awful timing, and stupid and ignorant."

On Stassi specifically, she said that she had a "lack of awareness" because she "lived in her own bubble" and Bravo had to "do what they had to do."

"I think everything was so inflamed at that time, but it had also been an accumulation of things she had done. It wasn’t just one remark, and I think the fact that she was proactive in calling with this whole Faith situation just was not the way to handle things.”

No word if the podcast hosts asked the restaurateur about her ongoing class-action lawsuit for not paying her employees, manipulating employee hours and not allowing her employees to take breaks.

Chris Stuckmann talks about leaving the Jehovah's Witnesses

Trigger Warning for discussions of leaving a cult. Youtube film critic Chris Stuckmann talks about being raised as a Jehovah's Witness and how the elders tried to stop him from making movies and youtube videos. Some of the things he talks about the process of disfellowshipped, which is when you leave the JWs and can no longer have any contact with people still in the faith (including family members), how they chipped away at his identity so much that he became depressed and suicidal. He talks about how he got "marked" for making Youtube content, which is like being disfellowshipped in that members of the JWs are no longer permitted to speak to you but you are still technically part of the JWs. He also talks about the rampant homophobia of the cult, and how it took him a lot longer to realize he wasn't straight because of it.

It's a long one hour video and it's very sad but it's really worth watching.

New Books Hitting Shelves This Week


Young Nadia Owusu followed her father, a United Nations official, from Europe to Africa and back again. Just as she and her family settled into a new home, her father would tell them it was time to say their goodbyes. The instability wrought by Nadia’s nomadic childhood was deepened by family secrets and fractures, both lived and inherited. Her Armenian American mother, who abandoned Nadia when she was two, would periodically reappear, only to vanish again. Her father, a Ghanaian, the great hero of her life, died when she was thirteen. After his passing, Nadia’s stepmother weighed her down with a revelation that was either a bombshell secret or a lie, rife with shaming innuendo.

With these and other ruptures, Nadia arrived in New York as a young woman feeling stateless, motherless, and uncertain about her future, yet eager to find her own identity. What followed, however, were periods of depression in which she struggled to hold herself and her siblings together.

ontd ruby.png

Actress Ruby Rose, pop star Demi Lovato, and reality star Demi Burnett had some minor DM drama last year. After Burnett came out as bisexual on the reality dating show "Bachelor in Paradise," she received a DM from Rose. “She DM’ed me one time and I almost died... she said, ‘Hey,’ and I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh, she’s sliding in.’ I was like, ‘This is it.’”

But it turns out that Ruby was only texting her because their mutual friend, Demi Lovato, instructed her to. “She’s like, ‘I was just messaging you because Demi Lovato told me to... Demi was probably like, ‘You should DM her, she’s going to love it. I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh. I thought she was hitting on me.’”

What do you think of this non-scandal?

Ruby Rose was lowkey hitting on Demi B
Demi Lovato was stirring up shit
this is a reach
I am in favor of any drama

John David Washington Addresses Criticism About Age Difference With Co-Star Zendaya

John David Washington is addressing the criticism of the age difference between him and his Malcolm & Marie co star, Zendaya.

Washington (36) spoke with Variety about the casting of Zendaya (24), who plays his girlfriend in the upcoming drama.

Washington said: "I wasn’t concerned about it because she is a woman. People are going to see in this film how much of a woman she is. She has far more experience than I do in the industry. I’ve only been in it for seven years. She’s been in it longer, so I’m learning from her. I’m the rookie.”

Zendaya has been acting since she was 14, when she was on the Disney channel. 😐

Washington said that he admired her wisdom and knowledge of the business and he thinks people will be proud of her in the role.

Jon Hamm Reveals He Auditioned To Play Sandy Cohen On ‘The O.C.’

Hamm once auditioned to play the role of Sandy Cohen on The OC.
He was around 31-32 years old. Harry Hamlin was also there for the audition.
The role of Sandy Cohen eventually went to Peter Gallagher who is 16 years older than Hamm.
Hamm would have auditioned to play Dan Humphrey’s dad Rufus if he did not get 'mad men' role.
His “in-between” age made auditioning for television roles pretty tough.
Hamm never looked young enough to be in high school, so he missed out on all the early WB shows.
But he wasn’t old enough to be the dads either.

ONTD Original: The Best Show You Aren't Watching - Taskmaster

My darlingssS, did you think this pandemic born series of tv posts was over? Me too you were wrong! Your favourite Snakey is here to give you the best shows to keep you company during this new lockdown! Today's rec is: Taskmaster!

What is it about?
This game show tests the abilities of several celebrities in hilarious ways. Greg Davies, the taskmaster, and his sidekick Alex Horne put 5 celebrities (per season, overall 10 seasons) to ridiculous tasks. The winner gets a ridiculous prize made of the stuff the contestants bring (which is also a task).

Why should it watch it?
Because i told you so, and all my recs are iconic! this show is like a warm blankie, its ridiculousness will help you escape this grim reality, and perhaps even teach you a couple of things (like take the scales off a fish before punching it). If you are still unsure, watch the video with national treasure Bob Mortimer and thank me later

Where can I watch this?
-CW Seed (?! Idk, thats what google tells me)
-Your usual places this snakey won't say

ONTD, do you watch panel show? Should we do a "big fat quiz" watch/game party on saturday?

- for those who never watched, nicole was considered the lead of sleepy hollow with tom mison as her sidekick/co-lead. in 2016, both actors became ill, but only nicole was ultimately fired: "For me, six years ago I was on a TV show. My co-star and I both got sick at the same time with the same illness and had different treatments. He was allowed to go on leave for a month and I had to continue working. There was a smokescreen of me getting my own episode titled Mama. By the end of that episode, I started to fall apart."
