David Lynch & Showtime Have Reached A Deal, He Is Back On Board The ‘Twin Peaks’ Sequel Series

Back in October, David Lynch thrilled the world with his announcement that he would be bringing a limited Twin Peaks sequel series to Showtime. As soon as the announcement was made, casting news started to come out and all seemed right with the world … that is, until rumors started to swirl that the Twin Peaks production was in jeopardy because Lynch hadn’t signed his deal with Showtime due to salary negotiations. Then, we heard from David Lynch himself that he was leaving the Twin Peaks reboot because a deal with the network couldn’t be secured — which upset a lot of people. That was the last we heard until today … when we learn the HAPPY news that a deal has finally be struck between Lynch and Showtime … and that production of the Twin Peaks sequel reboot is “happening again”.

The Emmett Till Story Is Becoming A Movie, Thanks To Roger Ebert’s Widow, Chaz Ebert

The Help, The Butler, 12 Years a Slave, Selma—there are some people who have said that we’ve had enough of these kinds of movies. These are all very different films, with very different plot points, and of course they’re all from different directors with unique visions. But they all highlight a time in which black people struggled against racism and oppression in America. These movies are all difficult to watch, at certain points, and I can understand the desire for less of this. But I’ve learned something new from every one of these stories, and I don’t see why these narratives should be marginalized. There’s a reason we still have World War II movies and remakes, and other period pieces about stories we thought we knew—it’s because there’s always more to tell. Now is the time to tell what is, unfortunately, another true horror story from 1950s America—the torture and murder of 14 year-old Emmett Till. It’s not exactly a story you look forward to seeing on film, but I’m very pleased that the movie is happening, and that Chaz Ebert is a part of it. Click inside for more.

Melissa McCarthy Proves Feminism Is The New Gangsta, Destroys Sexist Critic On The Red Carpet

This is pretty much my favorite story circulating online right now. I’ll admit that I haven’t seen Melissa McCarthy‘s recent movies, but I’ve been a fan of her comedy for some time now and I’m so happy to hear that she’s not taking shit from people. That’s pretty much the basis for any movement—feminism, black rights, LGBTQ rights—people deciding individually and collectively that they’re finished taking shit. Melissa McCarthy got approached by a critic who wanted to be all chummy with her, after lit’rally writing that “she was “only a good actor when [she] looked more attractive.” Suffice it to say, McCarthy [verbally] destroyed him.

Ariel Winter Of ‘Modern Family’ Is Officially Emancipated At Age 17

Way back in 2012 we started covering the story of Ariel Winter‘s emancipation process, and the heavy family drama that came along with it. There were so many conflicting stories, as Ariel and her sister Shanelle Gray both accused their mother of abuse, and Ariel‘s father got involved, along with the courts and—of course—public opinion. Now, three years later, the Modern Family actor has officially and legally been emancipated at age 17. Click inside for more.

Watch: Jennifer Lopez Previews Her Las Vegas Show With A Greatest Hits Performance On ‘Ellen’

Greatest Hits: Vegas Style

Earlier this week, Jennifer Lopez formally announced that she will be the next pop star to take up concert residency in Las Vegas starting next year and today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she delivered a performance of her greatest hits that gives us a taste of what we can expect when we see her show at the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino starting in January 2016. J. Lo performed a medley of her biggest hits with enough Vegas flavor that you’d be hard pressed to see this performance and not want to rush right out and get tix to see Lopez in LV next year. Wow. I was lucky enough to see Jennifer Lopez in concert a few years ago and I can assure you, La Diva Latina KILLS it on the stage. I am really looking forward to seeing her in Vegas next year … are you?
