Michael Bay Is Planning To Destroy Alfred Hitchcock’s Classic Film With A Remake Of ‘The Birds’

A. World. Of. HELL! NO!

Ugh. In today’s inevitable remake news, we learn that Michael Bay is planning to remake the classic Alfred Hitchcock masterpiece film The Birds (1963). I mean … I can’t even sigh loud enough at this news. Bay, IMHO, managed to take all of the fun out of the Transformers cartoon with his annoyingly over-the-top movie adaptations and now he wants to turn a Hitchcock classic into one of his films? No. I mean … just, no. For the most part, remakes are usually bad ideas … but this one has to be the worst idea ever. Naomi Watts is reportedly being courted to play the role that Tippi Hedron played in the original Hitchcock film so … there’s that. But no. The only thing that keeps resounding in my head is flatly and plainly, No. More »

Rachel Dolezal’s Adopted Brother Speaks Out Against Her

"She just told me, 'I'm going to be considered black. Don't blow my cover."

This is the story that just won’t quit—at least not for a little while. Because some of us are still curious as to WTF possessed Rachel Dolezal to invent a black identity for herself, lying to the whole world for inexplicable reasons, here is an explanation of sorts from her black adopted brother, Ezra (the one in the far left of the photo). Ezra spoke to Buzzfeed News and confirmed that Rachel asked him to help her keep up this lie, stating simply that in Spokane, she was to be considered black. We all have family secrets, but daaammmmn Gina! (#AskRachel where that one’s from.) This is insane. Click inside for more!

On Being Deeply Entertained And Disturbed By Public Reactions To Rachel Dolezal

Yes, it's hilarious; NO this isn't like being trans

Yesterday was an unforgettable day in pop culture history. I’m not ashamed to say that Lebron James’ situation had a lot to do with that. But the Rachel Dolezal story dominated my heart, mind and soul. I woke up to the first story breaking on Twitter and literally fell asleep laughing at the onslaught of #AskRachel tweets. But today, looking back on all of the different reactions I saw, I have to also admit that some of my fun was ruined–ruined– by a lot of ignorant stuff I saw. First of all friends, Caitlyn Jenner and every other member of the trans community has nothing to do with this white foolishness so leave them out of it. If you don’t know the difference between gender identity and blackface or cultural appropriation (or plain ol’ insanity), you have like 8 books to read + this post. Click inside for more!

Spokane NAACP Leader Rachel Dolezal Is A White Woman Pretending To Be Black, Apparently

'Black' NAACP leader outed as white woman

There is a very strange news story making the rounds today that at first I took as a joke but has gotten stranger and stranger as more information comes to light. As I understand it, Rachel Dolezal — the president of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP — has been filing complaints with local police regarding racial harassment for some time now. Dolezal‘s family caught wind of her allegations and have come forward to reveal that she is a woman of “Czech, Swedish German and a touch of Native American” heritage. As president of her chapter of the NAACP, Rachel Dolezal has “presented” herself as Black. I mean, what? Dolezal was confronted on camera with questions about her ethnicity and now, well, her odd story has become a viral sensation. Click below to see photos of Dolezal that highlight the confusion over her ethnicity, read a bit about her strange story and watch video of the interview that sparked this viral controversy. More »

NOW We’re Hearing That Homer & Marge Simpson Are NOT Breaking Up On ‘The Simpsons’

Backtracking

Yesterday news that Homer and Marge Simpson will be breaking up on the upcoming season of The Simpsons swept the Internets after showrunner Al Jean was quoted by Variety as saying that the couple will be getting “legally separated” after 26 years of fictional animated marriage. After the story blew up, Jean backtracked significantly on Twitter to say that he never actually said that the couple were breaking up. A promo image of Bart Simpson writing Homer and Marge Are Not Breaking Up repeatedly on his classroom chalkboard was also released so, yeah, it sounds like Jean‘s comment about the couple’s “legal separation” caused a lot of unintended trouble.

After 26 Years Of Marriage, Homer & Marge Simpson Will Legally Separate Next Season On ‘The Simpsons’

Blame Lena Dunham!

There will be a lot of changes coming in the upcoming 27th season of The Simpsons. Earlier this week, we learned that Sideshow Bob will finally kill Bart Simpson on the show … tho, it will happen in the show’s annual Treehouse of Terror Hallowe’en episode, so it really doesn’t count. Today we learn the very sad news that Homer and Marge Simpson will be breaking up on the show. That’s right, after 26 years of fictional marriage, this animated couple will file for legal separation after Homer leaves Marge for a pharmacist that will be voiced by Lena Dunham. Um, WHAT?!

Poor Beyoncé Fans Woke Up Hella Early For Her Disappointing ‘Good Morning America’ Announcement

Also, I take issue with this announcement in general

Ya know, we never talk about how hard it is to be a superfan. It’s draining, it’s exhausting, and there’s just no way to explain to your Mom why there’s a makeshift shrine to DMX on your bedroom floor (true story, circa 1999). So I feel for the Beyhive today, especially since many of them got up at the crack of dawn or something to hear Beyoncé‘s BIG MAJORLY HUGE announcement on Good Morning America, only to be disappointed with maybe the least exciting Beyoncé news ever.

The Duggar Family Rallying Behind Josh Is Unsurprising, Even Normal

Did you watch this horrifying interview though?!

There is no way I could have sat through the FOX News interview with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. Sometimes, it’s good to rage, and other times I just have to save myself from the insanity that is two people going on TV to speak for their grown ass son and to explain away his childish behavior that was totally resolved so it doesn’t even matter anyway. All that to say, I did not watch the interview, but I’ve seen a few clips and now support my decision to not watch the interview. On the one hand, some of these comments (and the lies, ohhh the LIES) are infuriating, and then I also thought, “This is a pretty typical response.” Click inside for more.
