Marcel’s Trainer to David Schwimmer: How Dare You Speak Ill of Dead Monkey Co-Star on ‘Friends’


source

Schwimmer did not enjoy filming with Marcel the monkey (Marcel was played by several monkeys) on Friends and talked about it at the reunion.

Marcel’s Trainer Mike Morris thinks it is "despicable for [Schwimmer] to still be speaking ill of [Marcel]"

"Schwimmer was fine with the monkeys for the first couple of episodes and happy to be there. But people would laugh at the monkey and I think he got jealous because it wasn't him getting the laughs. He seemed to get a little bitter about them being there after that.

"He's not the kind of actor who can improvise."

"But it's kind of bad that he is still talking about the monkey this many years after the show ended. It was one season over 25 years ago, it's time to let it go.

"It's almost like he's still got a monkey on his back. Katie can't speak for herself so that's why I'm talking out for her."

Actress Suzzanne Douglas Dead At 64




Her cousin dropped the news in a FB post, without sharing the cause of death.

If you're like me, you know her as Geraldine "Jerri" Peterson in the 90s sitcom "The Parent 'Hood", starring alongside Robert Townsend. Her TV daughter Reagan Gomez praised her earlier this year on Twitter.

For her lead role in Tap in 1989, Douglas won an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture. From there she went on to star in other feature films such as The Inkwell, Jason’s Lyric, and How Stella Got Her Groove Back. In 2015, she portrayed Cissy Houston in the Lifetime biopic Whitney.

Next Assassin's Creed to be massive years-long online game

Ubisoft announced today its next Assassin's Creed: Infinity.

The game is set to be a massive online platform that will evolve over time. Instead of one historical setting, there will be multiple, added as the months and years post-release go by. Each setting is set to look and feel different from the others.

Ubisoft is looking to mimic the success of GTA V's online mode, a game thats 8 years old and still as popular as ever.

Last year the studio faced allegations of widespread sexual misconduct that lead to studio heads and the CCO leaving and a reorganization of the company occurring. But others who had allegations against them still remain, leaving many dissatisfied of the way executives have handled things. Ubisoft is also unifying its Montreal and Quebec teams to work on the game, and Bloomberg reports that the two have a pretty nasty rivalry between them.

The game has no release date but is "years away" from release.

Food TV Personality Darius Cooks is Allegedly A Crook

Darius Williams aka DariusCooks, has been in so much hot water, he should be a lobser.

He has allegedly;

  • unpaid several employees at 3 of his now closed restaraunts and allegedly assaulted someone who confronted him about it.

  • Did not  deliver the goods after people paid him for FreshGo, a delivery service business (turns out it didn't exist)

  • Stolen recepies from black women.

  • Doxxed someone who wanted the services she paid for on his IG.

  • Has a ton of BBB (Better Business Bureau) complaints.

He has constantly been called to task by another chef, Angela Davis - The Kitchenista - who has showed scads and scads of receipts about his misconduct on her Twitter and Instagram, which you can find under the #dariuscrooks hashtag and this super long thread detailing his various crimes.

He's also not a good cook. TF is he making? Why did Youtube encourage this?

ONTD Original: How The World’s Biggest Popstar Was Placed Under A Probate Conservatorship


On June 23, 2021, Britney Jean Spears addressed the Los Angeles Superior Court and provided an explosive and detailed testimony on what she described as an 'abusive' conservatorship.

Over the past 13 years, Britney Spears has been under a probate conservatorship. Since 2008, every single personal and financial decision concerning Britney’s person and estate has been approved by her conservators.

Much of the details concerning Britney’s conservatorship have been kept hidden from the public, leaving millions questioning why and how the world’s biggest popstar was placed under a probate conservatorship.

As a result of the #FREEBRITNEY movement, jarring details of her case have been brought to the light.

In this post, we will explore the history of Britney’s conservatorship, and how it came to be.

Disclaimer: All information gathered in this post is public and fair to use, share for the purposes of education. Any details mentioned in this post that have not been confirmed, and are speculative in nature, have been presented as alleged information and should not be treated as fact until proven true.

To understand how the conservatorship came to be, we must first look closely at the events leading up to 2008. Together we will go through a timeline of Britney’s life prior to the conservatorship up until the conservatorship is made permanent.

But first, let us take a quick look at the key players rumored to have been involved in orchestrating the conservatorship.

Hope this timeline helped put things into perspective. It’s all thanks to the extensive research completed by fans over the past years. I tried my best to summarize and combine it all into one post. I do not take credit for the contents of this post. All sources have been provided, special thanks to Leanne Simmons for her concise timeline that was used to build this thread.

This post only covers the creation and implementation of the conservatorship and does not cover the events that transpired after. This is Part 1, a Part 2 uncovering the events after 2008 will follow, along with a Part 3 strictly focused on the questionable financial aspects of the conservatorship, including the speculation surrounding Britney’s alleged $600 million dollar fortune.

Spread the word and as always, #FREEBRITNEY

Olivia Rodrigo gets accused of queerbaiting by BTS stan/potential troll?

Two days ago, one of Pop Queen Olivia Rodrigo's BFFS, Iris Apatow, posted some photos of the pair on her Instagram page.





Some people (one particular army) have taken to Twitter to accuse the pop star of queerbaiting.





Naturally, everyone on Twitter is having a field day with these tweets, from Olivia stans to actual sane armies calling out the absolute insanity. There are three main debates taking place:

1. Is this person serious or trolling?
2. Is this actually queerbaiting or not?
3. Is the real issue here the sexualization of two girls who are barely 18?

Loki episode 5 "Journey into Mystery" recap



The penultimate episode of Loki is now streaming on Disney+

[Spoiler (click to open)]
Following up from the end-credits scene from episode 4, the other variants tell Loki that any one who is pruned by the TVA is sent to this void which has a cloud monster called Alioth that destroys anything in it's path. So there is no getting out of it, and the only thing they can do here is survive. They take Loki to their hideout bunker and tell Loki what the Nexus Event they caused. At the bunker Loki decides to kill Alioth. As he leaves the bunker, he is met with the president Loki variant and a brawl breaks out at the bunker. Loki escapes with Older (aka Classic) Loki, Kid Loki and Alligator Loki.

Meanwhile, at the TVA Sylvie demands from Renslayer to tell her the truth about who is behind the TVA. Renslayer tells Sylvie she is as much in the dark and also wants to find out the truth and suggest the trust each other and team up. She tells Slyvie about the void and says that she has a way to get Loki out of their, but she was only stalling and soon Sylvie is surrounded by MinuteMen. Sylvie grabs a TemPad and prunes herself to go to the void.

At the void, Sylvie is met up with Mobius. And soon meets up the Loki and the other variants. Sylvie thinks that the person incharge of the TVA is using Alioth as a guard dog and that she can enchant Alioth to get across. As Mobius takes the TemPad to go back to the TVA to tear it down. Loki and Sylvie both try to enchant Alioth, but the cloud monster is too much for them. Classic Loki builds an illusion of Asgard to distract Alioth and sacrifices himself, and Loki and Sylvie successfully enchant him. As the cloud breaks through, the episode ends.

Paris Hilton Addresses Comments Made About Her by Britney Spears During Testimony

Last month, while speaking to the court directly, Britney Spears referenced Paris Hilton's claims that she was verbally and physically abused at the Provo Canyon School when she was 17 years old.

Britney seemingly brought up the allegations as a way to provide an example to the judge of why it's hard for celebrities to speak out publicly on difficult topics, out of fear of not being believed or taken seriously.

"The Paris Hilton story on what they did to her at that school, I didn't believe any of it. I'm sorry. I'm an outsider and I'll just be honest, I didn't believe it. Maybe I'm wrong, and that's why I didn't want to say any of this to anybody, to the public, because people would make fun of me, or laugh at me and say, 'She's lying, she's got everything, she's Britney Spears.' I'm not lying."

Dance Moms 10 year Anniversary: The Wildest Things to Happen on Dance Moms

Lifetime's reality masterpiece "Dance Moms" premiered ten years ago this week! As I personally find Dance Moms to be an underrated reality gem, I thought I'd make a post reliving some of the most insane moments in Dance Moms. (If you want to know what the girls are up to now, I made a post about that a few months ago!)


Yolanda Chokes Stacey

Honestly, I had peaced out at this point, due to only Nia and Kendall remaining from the cast of the early seasons. However, during the pandemic, while I was rewatching the entire show, this was easily one of the most entertaining scenes ever. Abby was in jail during this episode so LaurieAnn Gibson was filling in as coach. There was a dance planned to be about LGBTQ individuals and LaurieAnn decided the three youngest members of the team (Elliana, Lilliana, and Maesi) would sit out. Elliana's mom, Yolanda instructs Elliana to go tell LaurieAnn a story about a gay friend of hers so that she can be in the dance. Stacey overhears. Things escalate. Yolanda accuses a 7-year-old of bullying. Camille delivers one of the most relatable lines of the show. "I wanna go out there too [to see what's happening] but I'mma watch the kids." Yolanda has since been accused of child abuse, compares her 13-year-old to a lingerie model on Instagram, and was once called out by ABBY for being too harsh on her child. Yikes.
