Remembering Selena Quintanilla Perez: Her Widower Speaks



Today is 26 years since Latina music icon Selena Quintanilla Perez was murdered by the president of her fan club. In an all-new episode of E! True Hollywood Story, her husband and guitarist Chris Perez detailed the grief he endured after losing the love of his life at the hands of her close friend and business partner.

"It was traumatic, it was the hardest thing up until that point that I had ever had to go through. I [still] miss her face, her laughter. She was just an amazing soul, an amazing spirit...I used to never tell people I love them, you know? Or I miss them, or just give them gifts just because. I learned those things and many, many other things from her."

He also revealed the pain of having to finish the instrumentals of her English songs without his wife. The songs were for the English crossover album she never got to complete.

"Them pushing play for me to record the guitar tracks and to hear her voice coming out the speakers in the studio, it was just painful to go in [the recording booth] and have to create parts and make them sound a certain way, when really inside you're just dying." he remembered.

Chris planned to mark this year's occasion his own way.

Selena was just 23 at the time of her murder. Her murderer will be up for parole March 30, 2025.

Did 'THE FALCON & THE WINTER SOLDIER' casually revealed Bucky's bisexuality?



- During the first episode of 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier' Bucky talks about his experiences with online dating and he mentions '“It’s pretty crazy. A lot of weird pictures. I mean, tiger photos? Half the time, I don’t even know what I’m looking at. It’s a lot.”
- People have taken the “tiger photos” remark as proof that Bucky is bisexual and was looking for men online, since tiger pictures had been famous on dating apps but they're especially prevalent on men’s profiles.
- The show has also been accused of queerbaiting for some scenes in episode 2 between Bucky and Sam.

'Game of Thrones' Play in the Works for Broadway

George R.R. Martin is co-writing a play that is a prequel to the 'A Song of Ice Fire' series. The play is about the Tourney at Harrenhall and will apparently feature a "young, shy Ned Stark, his rebellious sister Lyanna, cocky teenage Jaime Lannister, powerful Lord Robert Baratheon, lovestruck Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, dashing Prince Oberyn Martell and noble knight Ser Barristan Selmy".

“The seeds of war are often planted in times of peace,” Martin said in a statement. “Few in Westeros knew the carnage to come when highborn and smallfolk alike gathered at Harrenhal to watch the finest knights of the realm compete in a great tourney, during the Year of the False Spring. It is a tourney oft referred during HBO's Game of Thrones, and in my novels, A Song of Ice & Fire … and now, at last, we can tell the whole story... on the stage.”

Wyatt Russell talks about playing Great Value Captain America


• Wyatt Russell talked to The Wrap about his first full episode as John Walker, Captain America’s government appointed successor.

• Says that his goal was for Walker to cause a negative reaction among fans.

• Talks about Walker feeling pressure to live up to Steve’s legacy and to win the public (as well as Sam and Bucky) over. He has to do all this without the benefit of the super soldier serum.

• Reveals that Walker is aware that Steve picked Sam to take up the mantle, and had originally planned to win Bucky and Sam over but responded with aggression when they weren’t immediately impressed by him.

• Russell ends the interview by saying that Walker “doesn’t make life easier for anybody” and will spend the rest of the season butting heads with Sam and Bucky.

ONTD Original: Monthly Movie Challenge - April



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.

10 (5) Things You Didn't Know About Nicole Byer--by Nicole Byer


If you're familiar with comedian, actress, podcaster, and Nailed It! host Nicole Byer then you'll know she's basically an open book, whether it's about her dating life, career, or opinions. But there might be some things you don't know! Here are a few, according to Nicole herself:

  • The best gift she's ever recieved are a pair of yin-yan balls given to her by Sasheer Zamata (co-host of Byer's Best Friends podcast) even though she's "truly not sure what they're for".

  • She would probably be a mechanic or a bus driver if she didn't have her current career because she likes cars "and buses are just big cars".

  • She hates pickles. In fact, any food that is vinegar-based repulses her. And mustard.

  • The cultural phenomenon she couldn't get into was Game of Thrones, as she's not a 'fantasy girl' (which became evident on the podcast Newcomers where she and Lauren Lapkus watched everything Lord of The Rings related for a season).

  • She has two unpopular opinions: Home Alone is not a Christmas movie, and soup is bad.

Rest at the source along with a little interview where she talks about the pandemic, breaking her ankle, and her work.

Chet Hanks Bloodied After Ex-GF's Alleged Knife Attack



TW for ABUSE

A video was recently released showing the aftermath of an alleged assault on Chet Hanks by his ex-girlfriend Kiana Parker. The altercation took place on January 8. In the video, Chet accuses Kiana of attacking him with a knife. His face is dripping with blood as cuts appear on his forehead. Kiana denies cutting him. 

Parker also claims that Hanks has a history of violence towards her, filing for a restraining order in January and alleging that the celebrity roughed her up on multiple occasions throughout their relationship.

For the knife-wielding incident, Parker says that she arrived at Hanks' home to move her stuff out. She says Chet was antagonizing her and he was actually the one to grab a knife. She took a pot, she is seen in the video, and swung it to defend herself.

Colin Firth to Star in Adaptation of "The Staircase" for HBO

FINAL firth.png

Colin Firth will play convicted murderer Michael Peterson in a dramatic limited series based on the documentary series "The Staircase."

A bit confusing? "The Staircase" is a documentary that followed novelist Michael Peterson throughout the trial for the murder of his wife, Kathleen. HBO has ordered a fictionalized adaptation, since there is apparently not enough true crime content out there.

Michael Peterson: Guilty, or Not Guilty?

Deadline: Netflix to buy "Knives Out" sequels for $400 million



The original Knives Out was made for $40 million and grossed over $300 million worldwide in its initial 2019 theatrical run. Netflix is preparing to shell out lots of money for the rights to the sequels, a large sum that is necessary partly because of the need to buy out star Daniel Craig's contractual profit participation guarantee. It also helped that director/producer Rian Johnson engineered a bidding war between Netflix, Apple and Amazon for the rights.

Crying in the corner is Lionsgate, which distributed the original film but didn't have any stake in the sequels, the first of which is scheduled to begin production in Greece at the end of June.  Casting will soon commence.
