I’ve spent a good deal of my summer thinking about the upcoming season of Being Mary Jane, and how much I cannot wait for the show to pick back up. Gabrielle Union had not really been on my radar as a top actress before this show aired, but I can safely say that she’s one of my faves right now. And for that reason I’m psyched to hear that she just got hitched to her long-time boo, Dwayne Wade! The wedding was no surprise, as Gabby had been teasing about the big day on Instagram, and it officially went down last night. Click inside for more!
Earlier this week we learned that Britney Spears dumped her boyfriend David Lucado after video evidence of him cheating on her came to light (video that her father Jamie Spears purchased so that it wouldn’t be released publicly and embarrass her). Today we are hearing that Lucado is doing everything he can to “explain” himself to Britney in an attempt to get back with her but he is being TOTALLY BLOCKED from having any contact with her by everyone in her camp. Sorry cheater, but you effed up. I hope you never get a chance to get close enough to our dear Britney to hurt her again. Scuzzbucket. 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 »
Very sad news to pass along today … it is being reported that Joan Rivers is now on life support with only machines keeping her alive. As you may recall, Joan suffered cardiac arrest a few days ago when she stopped breathing during a throat procedure she was undergoing in a medical clinic. Altho her condition was upgraded from critical to stable, it would appear that the medically induced coma is largely responsible for the stability. We are learning today that Joan is currently on life support, which sounds dire but her family is still hopeful that she will recover. More »

Every once in a while, I have a week where I just have to allow myself to love Beyoncé. I step away from the hateration, and I just let myself love her. After the MTV VMAs, that’s what I had to do. I retweeted lit’rally every Blue Ivy meme available to me, and I just accepted the Carters for the friggen awesome, adorable family that they were on stage that night. For the first time ever, I actually, legit identified with Beyoncé. Like, OMG. In a real way. Watching her cry because her daughter is just so the truth, made her look more human to me than she ever has before. So yeah, she wins this week. And so do you PITNBrs! Click inside for just a few of the comments that made this another great week in PITNBr awesomeness!
I feel like we’ve all had that moment during a children’s movie where we suddenly realize that ish is getting real. Real, dark. I remember watching The Incredibles and thinking that some of the dialogue was just so intense and so adult: “And when everyone’s super, no one will be.” LOVE it. So it makes sense that (ten years later, because, OMG we are hella old) someone decided to rethink the movie through the eyes of Christopher Nolan. And yes, you def get some Dark Knight vibes form this parody trailer. Peep the video for more!
Today I ran my second of three races this weekend at Disneyland and altho it was mostly a fun race, it was far from a fun morning for me. I’ve been feeling a bit queasy for the past few days and all of that queasiness came to a head this morning when I woke up totally nauseous. I figured it would pass but thruout my entire 6 mile run, I felt moments away from puking my guts out in the nearest trash bin (I wouldn’t ever puke on the ground at Disneyland). Thankfully, I managed to make it thru the race without incident but the experience has me really worried for tomorrow’s 13.1 half marathon race :( More »

A little while back I wrote about one of the shows I’m most excited about this year—Transparent. Amazon is getting into the streaming game with a new series from Jill Soloway (Six Feet Under) about a family with some unique challenges. YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS TRAILER, and then watch the series when it debuts on Amazon on September 26. Jeffrey Tambor plays a transition, transsexual father of three (played by Amy Landecker, Jay Duplass, and Gaby Hoffman). I loved the pilot episode and I expect to love the series. Peep the trailer for more!
