bd314fe68f38470ea089799f614d86c4

'Latin Explosion' describes the wave of latin pop music that made it over into the west. It gave us some of the biggest latin artist we know today, Shakira, Enrique, Ricky Martin, Xtina & J....I think thats it. The genre got so big, artists in the west also started adopting a more 'latin' sound.

Sex and the City: How is Samantha Being Written Out?



For the HBO Max rehash of Sex and the City, Samantha's absence will be explained by explaining that Samantha...just isn't friends with the other three women any more.

"...just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave," a HBO rep says. "Friendships fade, and new friendships start. So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life... They’re trying to tell an honest story about being a woman in her 50s in New York. So it should all feel somewhat organic, and the friends that you have when you’re 30, you may not have when you’re 50.”

Okay, then! Clearly keeping the door open for Kim, I guess!

Conservative anti-semite transphobe Gina Carano has released a statement after her firing by Lucasfilm, announcing that she is teaming with Ben Shapiro's The Daily Wire to develop, produce, and star in her own film. The film will only be available to Daily Wire subscribers.

She states:
“I cried out and my prayer was answered. I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob. I have only just begun using my voice which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same. They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them.”

Rob Zombie on being a vegan



  • He was a vegetarian since he was 18 and became a vegan nine years ago. "We're all brainwashed from the moment we're born that all the cows are happy and the pigs are happy and everybody's so happy and it's all “Old McDonald Had a Farm.” And then I saw a movie that was the first time I really saw how brutal and disgusting factory farming was. That's when I was, like, 'I'm done.'... It was challenging. Vegetarian is easier, because you can still have scrambled eggs or pizza. Once I went vegan, it was, like...now there's nothing to eat. Every day it gets easier, and every day the food gets better."

  • He now has a farm where he rescues abandoned goats with his wife. "Sometimes they're just like giant dogs that are a little more dangerous 'cause they have horns. You wanna pick them up and hug them, but you don't wanna get impaled either."

Cameran from Southern Charm and RW wrote a book y'all..

finalcam.jpg

Bless her heart, Cameran Eubanks Wimberly is getting real. The fan-favorite Southern Charm star is finally opening up about her decision to leave the Bravo reality series and so much more in her new book of essays, One Day You'll Thank Me: Essays on Dating, Motherhood, and Everything In Between. During her six-season stint on the series, the 37-year-old was known for keeping it real and honest, which is exactly what she does in her book. Cameran details her time on The Real World and the truth about her relationship with husband Jason Wimberly, who appeared on-camera just once and yet became a storyline on the show when castmate Kathryn Dennis brought up a rumor of him cheating. (Cam denied the chatter, but it played a role in her exit from the show.) Cameran, who is mom to 3-year-old Palmer, also dishes on her experiences with fellow Bravo reality stars (and their diva-like behavior) and Beyoncé, who revealed herself to be a fan of The Real World. Who knew?!

more at source..

I wish she were back on reality tv, like a cooking show or something similar to Selena's. Southern Charm was a snooze fest this season. Anyway, her book is cute and not too $$$.

Is Wonder Woman cursed on tv? CW passes on WonderGirl tv series



-TheCW is at it again...after passing on Green Arrow and the Canaries they've decided to go one step further and pass on ordering a pilot for Wonder Girl.

-Wonder Girl was to follow new DC character, Yara Flor, an Amazonian from the Amazon.

-This will be the 2nd Wonder Woman-centric pilot script The CW has passed on. In 2012 they ordered an "Amazon" pilot script that was meant to serve as a prequel to Diana before she becomes Wonder Woman.

-NBC ordered a WW tv pilot in 2011 but that was ultimately passed on.

-In 1974, ABC aired a WW pilot featuring Cathy Lee Crosby as Wonder Woman and ultimately decided to pass on bringing it to series.

-In 1967 there was a pilot for Wonder Woman named Who's Afraid of Diana Prince? that was also ultimately passed on.

-Even in animation the Wonder Woman family has faced a hard time being adapted. WW was supposed to show up in Superman: The Animated series but was embargoed until Justice League. Wonder Girl was also supposed to be a founding member of Young Justice but DC emgarboed both Donna Troy and Cassie Sandsmark until the shows 2nd season which caused both to play very minimal roles in the series.

-Maybe 6th pilot is the charm?

Phoebe Waller-Bridge & Donald Glover Reboot ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith’ in Amazon Series


- Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) and Donald Glover (Atlanta) are rebooting feature film Mr. & Mrs. Smith as a television series for New Regency and Amazon Studios.

- Based off of the 2005 action movie starring Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt "as a married couple who were rival spies. It was directed by Doug Liman and written by Simon Kinberg"

- The show, co-created by Atlanta writer/producer Francesca Sloan

- From a statement by Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke: “Talk about the dream team! Donald and Phoebe are two of the most talented creators and performers in the world. It’s truly a dream for us, as it will be for our global audience, to have these two forces of nature collaborating as a powerhouse creative team. ’Mr. and Mrs. Smith’ is an iconic property, and we can’t wait to see how Donald, Phoebe and Francesca make it their own. We’re thrilled to be working with them, and with such great partners at New Regency.”

Also, Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer of New Regency said in the statement: “Having had the pleasure of successful collaborations with the incredibly talented Donald Glover, most recently on ‘Guava Island,’ we all started talking about other projects to do together and when he suggested the idea of a new take and iteration on the New Regency film, ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith,’ we jumped at the chance to get going right away. Adding Phoebe and her company Wells Street Films as a collaborator and co-star takes everything up another level and makes the project worthy of a reimagining for both new audiences and past fans of the original film. We are so excited to be working with Donald, Phoebe, Francesca and the entire team at Amazon Studios.”
