'If anyone out there has a mother, and she's not perfect, please call her and say you love her anyway'
Get ready to feel the feels. I told myself I wasn’t going to read this, because it’s only 10:30AM, and way too early to start crying. But alas, here I am. Earlier this week Robert Downey Jr. suffered one of the most difficult losses anyone can suffer—and yet, we all pretty much go through it at some point. His mother, Elsie Ann Downey, passed away at age 80, and it sounds like she had a tremendous effect on her son, his life, and many of his decisions. He did something that I know must have taken so much strength to do, and wrote an open letter in tribute to his mom. Click inside for more.
I have no words for the amount of nail-biting, live-tweeting, and screen-shotting madness that will be going down tonight. As we impatiently await the Scandal finale, I relive last year’s magic—and the magic that was me interviewing some cast members (Guillermo, Darby, Jeff, George, and Josh FTW). The only other way to get ready for tonight is with this amazing gallery of photos from the cast, compiled by the even amazing-er PITNBr Iris. THANK YOU IRIS, YOU STAY GIVING ME LIIIiiiife. And, everyone, peep the gallery for more!
P.S. You’ll see a new face in the gallery. Asante Jones now has a recurring role on Scandal. He’s also MY FRIGGEN COUSIN. But like, the special kind of cousin, where our Moms are twins so, it’s a REALLY big deal. #NBD #ReallyBigDeal

Joan remains on life support
Over the weekend we learned the troubling news that Joan Rivers was placed on life support in the wake of the cardiac arrest she suffered last week while undergoing a throat procedure in a medical clinic. Today we get an update from Joan‘s daughter Melissa that confirms that Rivers remains on life support. Honestly, it’s not much of an update but considering how many people are holding out for any bit of positive news, I figured Melissa‘s statement was worth sharing. More »
Back in June we learned that Michael Sam, the first openly gay player in the NFL, signed a 4-year contract to play for the St. Louis Rams … conditional on how he performed in the pre-season training with the team. Today we learn the sad news that Sam has been released from his Rams contract — which is a nice way of saying that he got cut. After all of his pre-season training with the team, the Rams decided that he wasn’t good enough to play professional football for them. More »
