"Zendaya, Umma let you finish... "
Y’all. I am sitting here, furrowing my brow and cracking up at the same damn time, because I cannot get over the stunt Nicki Minaj just pulled. Is she serious? I asked myself. Is she literally and figuratively snatching away Zendaya’s Barbie spotlight to make room for her own? If so, why in the hell would she do so? These are the difficult questions that plague us this Monday morning. Please click inside and help me figure out the extreme pettiness of Nicki Minaj.
Have you all been watching HBO‘s new miniseries Show Me a Hero? If not, please get on that. Now, it may have taken me a minute to come to the conclusion that Oscar Isaac Hernández is hot, but I have now arrived. And damn. I was editing this interview one of our writers at Paste did with him, and I’m not gonna lie—when I read about his nationality (Guatemalan, Cuban and French… Lordt), a lightbulb went off and I was all, “Ohhh, is that what it is?” As in, “Is that why I’ve been trying to figure out where he came from and why I find him so ridiculously attractive, even when he’s playing former Yonkers mayor Nick Wasicsko?” So yes. Please enjoy this gallery of hotness featuring the incredibly hot Oscar Isaac. Who is hot.

He's never even seen like one episode...
Listen. Sometimes people arrive late to the party. People like me, who are currently watching both The Sopranos and Six Feet Under. Don’t judge us! We’re fine. And then there are people like Robert De Niro, who still haven’t shown up to the party, and aren’t necessarily convinced that they need to make an appearance. De Niro shocked the world when he confessed recently that, after starring in all those gangster flicks, he has yet to watch the HBO series. Click inside for more!
A new lawsuit alleges her cancer diagnosis could have been avoided
Actress Shannen Doherty is suing her former management company alleging that her newly revealed breast cancer diagnosis and subsequent possible treatment (including mastectomy and chemo therapy) could’ve been avoided if the Tanner Mainstain management company hadn’t been negligent in their duties. Because of her lawsuit, it has been revealed publicly for the first time this week that Shannen has breast cancer, which is horrifying news. Doherty alleges in her suit that her former management company stopped paying for her health insurance and she was, therefore, let go by her insurance agency without her knowledge. When she finally signed up for new insurance coverage, she was diagnosed with breast cancer — something she says could’ve been avoided had she not been dropped from her former insurance coverage due to her former management company’s failure to pay her monthly premiums. It’s a bit complicated but the big takeaway is that Shannen Doherty is battling cancer, which is just terrible news. More »

Sources say Fogle will accept a plea deal Wednesday
Remember back in early July when federal authorities raided the home of then-Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle in search of child pornography, a raid that took place a few months after an associate of Fogle‘s was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography? Well, today we learn that authorities found something … because Fogle has agreed to plead guilty to child pornography charges and is expected to accept a plea bargain deal in federal court tomorrow. To be honest, I didn’t expect that Fogle would get busted with any type of illegal pornography, particularly since his friend/associate was busted with child pornography months ago but clearly I was wrong. Read on to learn more. More »

Yesterday we got our first look at the official trailer for Season Two of Empire. I have to admit, I haven’t watched it yet, in hopes of saving myself for some of the surprises. But I’m excited to see what kind of drama is going to pop off in the Lyon household come September, and I’m even more excited about this news coming out of the Television Critics Association summer press tour. Seriously. A [highly possible] Taraji P. Henson/Cookie Lyon spinoff? It may be too early to be talking spinoffs, but no. Actualy it’s not. We need this in our lives and Lee Daniels sounds pretty certain that it’s going to happen. Click inside for more!
"Gotta f*ck 'em all"
In terms of pop culture-inspired porn parodies, we’ve seen mostly entertaining offerings that have spoofed Guardians of the Galaxy, Game of Thrones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Man of Steel … to name but a few. Today, we learn that WoodRocket Productions has taken the porn parody treatment into the world of … Pokémon. A trailer for their newest offering, titled Strokémon, has been released and as you can see above, except for some strong language, the trailer is mostly safe for work (tho, the Pikachu-like character named Dickachu is the stuff nightmares are made of. All of your fave Pokémon characters are spoofed in this porn parody — Ash, Misty, Brock, even Team Rocket (Jess, James and a nekkid Meowth):
Honestly, I like having fun with silly porn parody offerings but this one … this one is different. I’m so terrified by the prospect of these characters having sex that I’m not sure my frail little heart could handle the NSFW version of this trailer. But, if you are the type of person that would love to have your childhood completely destroyed by a porn parody film based on a beloved cartoon from your youth, then Strokémon
might be right up your alley.

Remember how Sarah Michelle Gellar shared a cute photo with her Buffy the Vampire Slayer co-star Alyson Hannigan a few days ago? Yeah, well, she kinda outdid herself last night when she met up with her Cruel Intentions co-stars Selma Blair and Reese Witherspoon for a mini-reunion here in LA. The ladies got together to attend a performance of Cruel Intentions: The Musical, which is so mind-blowingly amazing that I can barely believe it happened. The ladies posed for photos together (including on the red carpet, where Sarah and Selma recreated their infamous kiss from the movie) and were videoed singing their hearts out during the performance. OMG. It’s too much! It’s just too much amazing for words. More »
E-VERY-THING (plus SPOILERS!!!)
We Mad Men fans are an absolute emotional wreck this morning. What happened? Where are we? WHO are we? There’s going to be plenty to read online this morning about the last episode ever of one of the greatest TV shows ever, but I’m going to focus on the one character who absolutely blew me away last night. All these years I’ve been talking about Peggy Olson, and hailing Elisabeth Moss‘ character as one of the most important TV characters—especially among women. But Joan Holloway-Harris‘ arc has been so fantastic—surprising and fulfilling in every way—that I just have to talk about it. Click inside for more!
