Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds Funeral Features Dancing, Droids and a Standing Ovation

15 hours ago

The tears flowed early on as Hollywood luminaries gathered at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Burbank to remember the late Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, the mother-and-daughter showbiz icons who died on consecutive days in December. Reynolds’ son Todd Fisher opened the memorial with a color guard to honor his mother’s work for the troops — then got down to defining the event, which he didn’t want to describe as a memorial, to honor Reynolds’ personality. “This entire thing I’m calling a show, not a memorial,” Fisher said. “Because my mother didn’t like funerals or memorials. She liked shows and parties. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminates Facebook Troll Over Special Olympics Comment

16 hours ago

Arnold Schwarzenegger is in his home country of Austria this week for the Special Olympics World Games, and he posted a Facebook video Thursday with some of the competitors talking about how he’s inspired by them. But not all of his Facebook followers, apparently, got the same inspiration. In response to the video, one commenter wrote that the “Special Olympics make no sense,” before using a derogatory term for mentally-challenged people. But instead of simply deleting the post, Schwarzenegger decided to fight back in a much more visible — and brutal — way. Holy damn, Arnold is a damn savage. pic. »

12 Worst Parts of New ‘Justice League’ Trailer (Photos)

16 hours ago

Millions of people woke up on Saturday morning to a new trailer for the “Justice League” movie and, if you’re anything like us, you were totally baffled by it. Here are the absolute worst parts of the trailer — though if you’re looking for Aquaman-bashing here, best look elsewhere. If there’s one thing everyone complained about “Batman v Superman” not having enough of, it was pointlessly indulgent and nonsensical displays of light and color. Good thing Zack Snyder is bringing them back for “Justice League”! In case you were wondering, Lois Lane is in this movie. I would guess they tossed. »

Pizzagate Rally Brings Out Steadfast – and Some Nutty – Fake News Believers

17 hours ago

There’s a Pizzagate protest by the White House today, and it’s included a family in matching pizza shirts, a speaker in a propeller hat and an “All Children Matter” sign, as a devoted group of core believers insist on pursuing an investigation into a debunked conspiracy theory. Pizzagate is the unofficial name for a series of fictitious internet news stories that implicated the Comet Ping Pong restaurant in Washington, D.C., and its owner in a child sex operation. The “reports” started before Election Day and accused Hillary Clinton and her campaign chairman John Podesta of kidnapping, molesting and trafficking children in the. »

‘SNL': Is There a New Episode Airing This Week?

18 hours ago

With Donald Trump’s health care bill pulled from a vote in the House of Representatives Friday, you’d think “SNL” would have plenty of hilarious fodder for politically themed sketches and “Weekend Update” monologues this weekend. But, unfortunately, fans hoping to watch Alec Baldwin’s Trump, Kate McKinnon’s Kellyanne Conway and Melissa McCarthy’s Sean Spicer try desperately to spin the failure into a win will have to wait. “Saturday Night Live” is on hiatus for Saturday, March 25. In fact, the three-week break extends for another week, so don’t expect a new episode on Saturday, April 1, either — likely a wise move. »

Bill Maher Tells ‘Conned’ Trump Supporters to ‘Stop Being Stupid’ (Video)

20 hours ago

Bill Maher’s tolerance for Donald Trump is, let’s just say, not great. But now the comedian and host of HBO’s “Real Time” is taking aim at the new president’s supporters. “America needs more Republicans like this guy,” Maher said, referring to a photo of a man holding a “I’ve made a huge mistake” sign. Although the guy could have been on a tear about his choice of apartments, wardrobe or barbers, Maher assumed it was politically motivate. “This man should be commended, and not just for being the first Trump voter to get all the spelling right on a sign, »

Warner Bros. dropped the trailer for “Justice League,” its much-anticipated DC Comics ensemble film, early Saturday morning. The trailer features Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg in action for the first time, as they team up with Batman and Wonder Woman to the tune of The Beatles’ “Come Together.” The trailer also features Bruce Wayne, who seems to be wittier than he was in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” noting with deadpan snark that his superpower is that he’s “rich.” Also Read: 'Justice League:' J.K.

24 March 2017 8:00 PM, PDT

Shocking no one, Bill Maher gloated hard at the start of tonight’s episode of “Real Time” over the failure of Donald Trump and the Republicans to pass the “repeal and replace” health care bill the party has campaigned on for nearly seven years. “Oh, this looks bad for Trump,” Maher said in his opening monologue. “It does. You know how Putin feels about failure.” House Speaker Paul Ryan met with Trump today and told him that they were unable to whip the necessary votes from within the Gop and the best thing they could do was to pull the bill that. »

Paul Ryan and Papa Roach’s ‘Last Resort': Twitter Loves a Story Too Funny To Be True

24 March 2017 5:43 PM, PDT

After the health care defeat suffered by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and President Trump, did Ryan really console himself with the music of Nu Metal band Papa Roach? No. But thanks to a hilarious Photoshop job by humorist Justin Halpern, Twitter has decided a story too good to be true should just be declared true. The background: Despite months of campaign promises, Ryan and Trump were unable to whip up the votes necessary to pass the Gop bill that would “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act — a.k.a. “Obamacare.” This even though their party controls both houses of Congress. »
