Gam Gam Goes Flip Flopping: Rita Moreno Apologizes for Dismissing In The Heights Casting Criticism



- A follow up to this post
- After her statements defending Cringe Extraordinare Lin-Manuel Miranda and the obvious lack of Afro-Latino actors in the recently released film, In The Heights, the actress responded to the backlash of her comments, tweeting "I'm incredibly disappointed with myself. While making a statement in defense of Lin-Manuel Miranda on the Colbert Show last night, I was clearly dismissive of Black lives that matter in our Latin community...It is so easy to forget how celebration for some is lament for others." She followed it up with praising Miranda for his promise to be more inclusive to his casting in future projects.

iCarly is Back and the Fans are LOVING it!


Paramount+ released the first 3 episodes and a reunion special of the revival of iCarly, a beloved Nickelodeon series that would potentially become the precursor to influencer culture.

The revival introduces new cast members Laci Mosley and Jaidyn Triplett to the cast. The first three episodes has guest stars such as Josie Totah, Mary Scheer (Freddie's mom), and Danielle Morrow (Nora Dirschlitt).

Original fans of the series are praising new addition Laci Mosley as Carly's roommate/best friend Harper, the consistency between the tone of the original and revival, and the show seamlessly transitioning to an older audience.

Indie Film Release Guide: June 18th [An ONTD Original]

ONTD Indie Release Guide Graphic.png


This weekend represents a lull for major studio releases, with Disney+ releasing Luca direct to streaming, and every other major studio taking a week off. But Lionsgate is sending The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard to wide release, and Sony Pictures Classics is releasing 12 Mighty Orphans fairly wide, too, so there will be some fresh blood at theaters nationwide. The rest of this week’s releases are more limited, and you can check them out below.

The films listed are from studios other than the “Big Six” - Paramount, Warner Brothers, 20th Century, Universal, Columbia/Sony and Disney. Note that some of the movies listed are in their first week or two of limited release in the USA, so it may take them a few more weeks (or months) to show up in your local arthouse theater or on VOD. Check out the posts from the past few weeks for more movies that may have just opened near you: June 11th, June 4th, and May 28th.

Victoria's Secret Permanently Gets Rid Of Its Angels

queen Doutzen Kroes

Victoria's Secret is a dying brand that has received criticism from promoting unhealthy standards for women, excluding transgender models, casting mostly light-skinned women, and totally ignoring the plus-sized population. Today, the brand announced a pivot to "The Collective," which eliminates its roster of "Angels."

The new collective includes women such as Megan Rapinoe, Priyanka Chopra, and transgender advocate Valentina Sampaio.

Sales of VS have plummeted due in large part to body-positive brands like Aerie. With this change, the company hopes to empower women sell more panties.

Hi Sisters! Tati Westbrook Returns To YouTube With “A Year Later...” Video




Vitamin Queen & Beauty Guru Tati Westbrook broke her silence and finally returned to YouTube after nearly 1 year.

Westbrook says after uploading her “Breaking My Silence” video in 2020 (where she exposed Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson) she began receiving intense hate messages and death threats.

She said she made the decision to take a break so she “could regroup and stand strong and come back” and has been silent since.

Tati says she does not speak to anyone in the beauty community anymore.

During her break from YouTube, Westbrook and her husband (James) were sued by their business partner, Clark Swanson, who accused the couple of fraud and negligence for how they handled their joint company Halo Beauty.

According to the suit, Swanson claimed Westbrook and her husband, James, breached agreements they settled on that left Swanson out of their deal.

In her video, Westbrook addressed the legal matter: “I never left Halo. I always stayed active as the CEO. I am still currently, actively today going through litigation — it is overwhelming, but I’m going to keep fighting the good fight for truth and for justice.”

Tati revealed due to her ongoing lawsuit, she has been forced to downsize her homes and lifestyle and that she and her husband James “almost got divorced.”

Accused Clark Swanson of feeding drama channels information. [Full Quote]“I was recently informed that Clark Swanson had been feeding information, disparaging information, to drama channels about myself, about my husband, my family, info about Halo Beauty, financials, pipeline of product launches, the kind of stuff that should never be shared under any circumstances,” Westbrook says. “Finding this out really signaled to me that this, in my opinion, feels like sabotage and has made me want to go the distance and not stop the fight for justice in this particular situation.”

Stopped wearing her wedding ring during their marital problems and lost it after accidentally donating it with other items.

Moved from Los Angeles to Seattle.

Compared her life to a Lifetime movie and hopes to get her Hallmark ending. “A happily ever after.”

Asked psychics, mediums, and tarot readers to stop predicting her life. “I have closed that door in the spiritual realm, and I am asking to not be used in any way, shape, or form in videos involving divination.”

Chris Lowell joins How I Met Your Father (HIMYM Spin-off)




I’m not a fan of multi-cam comedies and I was bored with HIMYM, but I might check this one out because he’s great with comedy.

If you don’t recognize his name or haven’t seen him in any film and tv series, check out Enlisted and GLOW to start. He was also in Veronica Mars, Private Practice, Life As We Know It, The Help, and Promising Young Woman. His next role is in Netflix’s upcoming miniseries Inventing Anna.

He’s currently chronicling his cross country trip (last year) from L.A. to New York via his Instagram. You can also check out his other photography on his IG too.

Fun Fact: He auditioned for the role of Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy. Think they cast the wrong “Chris”?



He doesn’t have a tag, so I did my best, and I hope the IG embed code worked because I’ve never done that before.☺️

Streaming Outdraws Broadcast Television, Nielsen Figures Say



A new monthly Nielsen measurement called “The Gauge,” shows that 26% of viewers streamed content VS 25% watching broadcast television. Cable however still leads with 39%.

“The past year has categorically shifted the television viewing landscape. Even as people begin to dive back into their pre-pandemic activities, based on the changes many made to enable streaming coupled with the variety of newly introduced services, we expect people to keep sampling and exploring their options. Maybe just as importantly, as production ramps back up, new content will enter the space, driving additional traction,” says Brian Fuhrer, SVP, Product Strategy at Nielsen.

[Methodology]The Gauge is a monthly interval showing the Total Usage of Television (TUT) for Broadcast, Streaming, Cable and Other with a Streaming channel drill down.

All other TV includes: The primary components of this are AOT (ALL Other Tuning), VOD, Streaming through a cable set top box, Gaming, and other device (DVD Playback) use.
Other streaming is any high bandwidth (video) streaming to the television not listed.

Statistics: Share by category, Share of TUT broken out for Streaming Distributors

Streaming via Cable Set Top Boxes does not credit to the respective streaming distributors, but instead is included in the “All Other” group.

'GLOW' Star Betty Gilpin Got Jumped in NYC

In the interview, Gilpin talks about how she feels to have her first leading movie being pulled from theatres due to the pandemic, shows off her Ann Coulter impression, and shares a story about being jumped by a group of teenage girls while living in New York City. Check out the interview below. (If you're only interested in the "getting jumped" story, it starts at 2:40.)

Scarlett Johansson speaks out over ‘sexualised’ Black Widow



She is happy that the character has undergone a transformation from its early days of "hyper-sexualization".
Johansson, 35, made her debut as Black Widow in Iron Man 2, in 2010.
11 years later the superhero is getting a solo outing in July this year.

"It definitely has changed and I think part of that change has probably — it’s hard because I’m inside it, but probably a lot of that is actually from me too. I’ll be 35 years old and I’m a mom and my life is different. Obviously, 10 years have passed and things have happened and I have a much different, more evolved understanding of myself. As a woman, I’m in a different place in my life, you know? And I felt more forgiving of myself, as a woman, and not — sometimes probably not enough. I’m more accepting of myself, I think. All of that is related to that move away from the kind of hyper-sexualization of this character and, I mean, you look back at Iron Man 2 and while it was really fun and had a lot of great moments in it, the character is so sexualized, you know?"

Her character is talked about in Iron Man 2 like "she's a piece of something, like a possession or a thing or whatever — like a piece of ass, really."

"Yeah and at one point calls her a piece of meat and maybe at that time that actually felt like a compliment. You know what I mean? Because my thinking was different. Maybe I even would have, you know, my own self-worth was probably measured against that type of comment or, like a lot of young women, you come into your own and you understand your own self-worth. It’s changing now. Now people, young girls, are getting a much more positive message, but it’s been incredible to be a part of that shift and be able to come out the other side and be a part of that old story, but also progress. Evolve. I think it’s pretty cool,"

Where Are All The College-Set TV Series?



College narratives are a rare find. Oftentimes, they are simply nonexistent.
“A Different World,” “Felicity”, “Community”, “Grown-ish,” “Dear White People”, “The Goldbergs” (through only a few of its core characters), “Deaf U”.
Networks and streaming have yet to fully explore the totality of diverse experiences that take place in college.

College campuses may not be as appealing or intimate, especially for those who haven’t attended university. College-age adults often experience internal conflict, based on ideological growth and existential reckoning, which can be difficult to portray on screen in an accurate and compelling manner.

University-centered life is not limiting, though, and instead college represents an insulated environment that replicates the same hierarchies and institutions that exist in society.

The concerns about the continuity of friend groups and romantic relationships, along with the day-to-day routine of classes and work, abound in such settings, as well.

The structure of college allows for natural character development, as well as a simple, palatable format: Each season can correspond with a year at college, with the following season premiere being viewed as a fresh start for the show and ensemble.

Anthony Mackie addresses the Sam/Bucky romance rumors



“So many things are twisted and convoluted. There’s so many things that people latch on to with their own devices to make themselves relevant and rational. The idea of two guys being friends and loving each other in 2021 is a problem because of the exploitation of homosexuality. It used to be guys can be friends, we can hang out, and it was cool. You would always meet your friends at the bar, you know. You can’t do that anymore, because something as pure and beautiful as homosexuality has been exploited by people who are trying to rationalize themselves. So something that’s always been very important to me is showing a sensitive masculine figure. There’s nothing more masculine than being a superhero and flying around and beating people up. But there’s nothing more sensitive than having emotional conversations and a kindred spirit friendship with someone that you care about and love. Sam and Steve had a relationship where they admired, appreciated and loved each other. Bucky and Sam have a relationship where they learn how to accept, appreciate and love each other. You’d call it a bromance, but it’s literally just two guys who have each other’s backs."
