"I was instructed to NEVER tell anyone."
Here’s an interesting point that readers are starting to make about the Bill Cosby rape/sexual assault/predatory behavior accusations. Not one celebrity who has worked closely with Cosby over the years has come forward to defend his name. Raven-Symoné only came forward to refute rumors that he sexually assaulted her, but we haven’t seen any rallying around Cosby. I think that speaks volumes. And now we have yet another actress, Michelle Hurd, coming forward and speaking out about her experience with Cosby. She was fortunate enough to not have been attacked by him, but she says Cosby certainly tried. Click inside for more.

She's ready to move on
This was an odd interview to read, but I have to say, I appreciate Angelina Jolie‘s honesty. I think we’re used to hearing actors talk about how much they love the work they do, how much of a dream come true it is to make a good living off of acting. But after years and years in the biz, Jolie is ready to call it quits, and give up on acting. Don’t worry—we’ll still be seeing her around. Click inside for more!
Beth Ferrier accused Cosby in 2006, and "lost everything"
I don’t know why I’m writing this, exactly. I think the people who are asking the question, “Why are Bill Cosby‘s accusers just now coming forward?” are not likely to be persuaded by the logic in this new story. As I’ve said, celebrity/hero worship is a helluva drug. But, ya never know. And Beth Ferrier‘s statements are also helping me better understand what is going on here. At this point I think we’re at 18, maybe 218 women who have come forward over the years and accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault or rape. From what I’ve seen, the stories are all pretty much the same. Nearly all of the women were aspiring actresses, and any others were already working in the industry—women who had a lot to lose if they went up against Cosby. Click inside for more.

'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt'
A new Tina Fey show is headed our way, but why am I just now hearing about the details about this show??? Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt sounds amazing. And it also sounds like some of the new changes that are already coming to the series are all for the best. Come March 2015, Netflix subscribers will get the opportunity to binge on Tina Fey‘s new series, and binge we shall. Click inside for more!
"They could definitely ramp it up"
Like all cool people, I started watching Game of Thrones wayyyy after the rest of the world. As in, a few months ago. And probably the first thing I noticed was alllll the boobs. No need for a Free the Nipple campaign on that show. SERIOUSLY. And once I saw everyone’s boobs—and everything else—I realized that I hadn’t seen much in the way of male anything. Y’all know how I feel about that. Which is why these comments from Hunger Games: Mockingjay star Natalie Dormer (who plays Margaery Tyrell on Thrones) are getting the ill co-sign from me.
"I'm really excited about the music that we've been working on"
Last week we heard from Rihanna herself that she has new music ready for release … BUT, she wouldn’t go on the record and let us know when that music will be released. Last night, Rihanna gave a new interview to Entertainment Tonight magazine and she teased that her new album will be released “very soon”. Now, “very soon” could be taken literally and mean that the album will be out in days or weeks. “Very soon” could also, in artist speak, mean that the album will be out in a few months. I know many folks are DYING for a new Rihanna album to drop before the year is out and while possible, I cannot let my heart get set on that high hope. Unless Rihanna pulls a Beyoncé and drops her new album without warning sometime in the next few weeks, I think we might have to settle in and wait until 2015 gets underway before we get to have her new album in our clutches.

For a few weeks now, Bill Cosby has been at the center of a firestorm of controversy in the wake of various women alleging that Cosby had raped them. These rape allegations have existed for years but they’ve recently come to the forefront after a stand up comedian made a joke a few weeks ago referencing the years of Cosby rape allegations. Then, one after the other, women have come forward to tell their stories regarding sexual abuse they say they suffered at the hands of Bill Cosby. Last night, model Janice Dickinson made an appearance on Entertainment Tonight to reveal that she, too, had been raped by Bill Cosby back in 1982. She says he drugged her before he assaulted her … which is something that Cosby used to joke about in his stand up routines. Wow. Netflix announced previously that Bill Cosby would be getting his own comedy special but, in the wake of these rape allegations, they have decided to postpone the special. Cosby, for his part, denies everything. Click below to hear Janice share her story, in her own words. More »
OH MY GOD (of Thunder)
People magazine has announced the man they have selected as the Sexiest Man Alive for 2014 and, wouldn’t you know it, they went with Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth as this year’s main man. Hemsworth, as you should be well aware, has played a range of roles in films but he is probably best known these days as the golden-haired hottie who brings the Marvel Comics superhero Thor to life on the big screen. A happily married father of three, Hemsworth is exactly the kind of man that People likes to select as the year’s sexiest … handsome, approachable and safe. More »
"School is not authentic because it ends."
Willow and Jaden Smith, 14 and 16 years old respectively, are featured in the new issue of the New York Times magazine T and are getting a lot of attention for their comments in the magazine. To be honest, when I first read excerpts of this interview posted on social media, I didn’t really pay much attention because the comments were so odd that I assumed they were fake comments generated for humor. I mean, the things that these kids say in this interview are so out there that it’s easy to see why anyone would think the comments are fake. On the one hand, I would really like to applaud Jada and Will Smith for teaching their children to be such free thinkers … but the rational side of me can’t help but shake my head in disbelief that the nonsense that these kids are spewing is too ridiculous to be a good thing. I’m almost at a loss. Read on to get a taste of the world these kids live in and see what you think about their outlook on things. More »
Back in July we first heard that serious discussions were underway for the production of a Sons Of Anarchy prequel series to occur after the current 7th and final season of the show finishes its run next month. Today we revive those hopes for a SoA prequel series thanks to a new interview with SoA actors Kim Coates and Theo Rossi. The guys appeared on Larry King Now to promote the final episodes of Sons of Anarchy and Larry asked them their thoughts on the possibility of a SoA prequel series. Watch the video above to see what the guys think about a prequel and the possibility that one of them might appear on the show.
