Kylie Jenner Rocks Cornrows Again Following Criticism from "Hunger Games" Star

12 August 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Kylie Jenner's at it again!   The reality star is no stranger to changing up her hair, but it looks like she just went back to one of her more controversial style choices.   The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star showed off a new look in an Instagram snap posted by pal Pia Mia. The shot has since been deleted.   In the pic, the teen rocks a sports bra, sweats, and a pair of "18" glasses as she turns her head to reveal her dark locks done up in cornrows with blonde streaks throughout.   The youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan has found herself in hot water in the past for this particular hairstyle, which might explain why the post was taken down.   Jenner herself also posted a video on Snapchat sporting the look -- check out a screen grab below. Back in July, fans and "Hunger Games" star Amandla Stenberg »

Mr. Robinson Review – TV NBC

4 August 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Mr. Robinson isn’t a show for everyone, which is largely a function of the fact that Welcome Back, Kotter wasn’t for everyone, and owed a lot of the success it had to limited alternatives.

Don’t get me wrong, Welcome Back, Kotter was not only a great show, but it managed a surprising amount of influence on the landscape of television for decades… it just wasn’t for everyone.

Mr. Robinson stars Craig Robinson as a part-time substitute/part-time singer who runs into an old flame and hopes to rekindle things. When he learns that she now teaches at their old High School, he takes the first chance he gets to substitute there.

Mr. Robinson is laid-back almost to a fault… well, probably to a fault. He quickly hints that he wasn’t very serious about school, and hasn’t been very serious about anything since, but he »
