Praise Cookie! Which Empire Fan Faves Just Got Promoted to Series Regular?
Empire's assistants are getting a promotion! They may still be Lucious and Cookie's lackeys (for now), but Gabourey Sidibe (Becky) and Ta'Rhonda Jones (Porsha) will reportedly be series regulars once season two starts. It's no surprise that the Fox hit is adjusting a few people up, since it's the hottest new thing on TV. To call it a hit is actually kind of an understatement, since it completely ruled the world of television when it premiered earlier this year and proceeded to do the unheard of by increasing in ratings every single week, surpassing other shows left and right. It also ruled over social media, with everyone and their mothers tweeting about the various nefarious »

Did The Bachelor Finally Master Dancing with the Stars? Find Out Who Went Home!
The queen has left the building. We were having so much fun tonight we almost totally forgot there was even an elimination, and we were definitely saddened to see that it was the incredible Patti Labelle who had to go. That was pretty much the best episode yet this season. We thought we loved Disney week last week, but spring break week had some moments that totally destroyed last week. Patti, regardless of her eventual elimination, brought out her usual grace and perfection for her quickstep with partner Artem Chigvintsev but she also added a little twist by kicking off her shoe halfway through and killing the rest of the dance with just one shoe. As for the rest of the crew, we'd like to »
Demi Lovato Says Boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama ''Wouldn't Enable Me'' When Struggling With Substance Abuse
Demi Lovato has not been shy about praising her boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama, and she continues to speak very highly of her significant other. Especially when it comes to the pair's relationship during the star's difficult time in her life. Lovato spoke to Sydney's Kyle And Jackie O show on Kiis 106.5 FM on Tuesday, and the 22-year-old who has been dating the 35-year-old That '70s Show star on and off since 2010, said her personal issues certainly affected their relationship, but Wilmer was always supportive. "There were some moments when it was off and on when I was struggling with my issues," she confessed. "What he would do is he wouldn't enable me so he'd say, 'I can't »
Lesbian Themed IFC Film ‘Wild Canaries’ Banned by Idaho Theater
“Wild Canaries” is a bit too wild for Idaho. In the town of Sadpoint, Idaho, The Panida Theater has pulled two scheduled screenings of the murder mystery, which played at SXSW this year, for what it deemed “inappropriate content that was not disclosed” — though one cast member claims the film is under attack for gay themes and drug use on screen. In a statement linked from their Facebook page, Panida’s executive director Patricia Walker White said the IFC Films release “contained subject matter not in keeping with the standards of the Panida and I have chosen to cancel screenings for Friday and Saturday matinee. »

Sarah Hyland Gushes Over "Amazing" Boyfriend Dominic Sherwood, Swears She Knows Nothing About Sofía Vergara's Wedding
Sarah Hyland just can't hide that smile on her face. Between her role in Modern Family and a new movie called See You in Valhalla coming out Friday, the actress has a lot to be grateful for.

Bobbi Kristina Brown Out of Coma, But Still Unresponsive: Cissy Houston
The Bobbi Kristina Brown updates continue to be at once confusing and cryptic. After questions surfaced Monday following conflicting reports of Brown's purported coma and quality-of-life improvements, both the Browns and the Houstons sought to provide clarity. "Bobbi Kristina's condition has changed since moving from Emory University Hospital and there has been improvement," said lawyer Christopher Brown, representing Bobby Brown, in a statement emailed to USA Today. "Doctors have indicated that she will have a long life. However, Bobbi Kristina is presently embarking on a rehabilitation process and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come." Bobbi Brown is out of the ICU, according to Bobby Brown's wife, who adds that her husband was in an emotional state when he declared his daughter was awake over the weekend. Bobby Brown's sister, Tina Brown, reportedly wrote (in a now-deleted Facebook post): "So many messages, »

Cissy Houston: Granddaughter Bobbi Kristina Brown No Longer in a Coma but Has ''Irreversible Brain Damage''
Ultimately, what Bobbi Kristina Brown's family seems to be able to agree on is that they love her and they want to see her get better. In response to a flurry of updates prompted when Bobby Brown said during a concert that his daughter was "awake" and he felt that she was watching him, grandma Cissy Houston said Monday night that the 22-year-old remained in an unresponsive state. "I have just returned from visiting my granddaughter Bobbi Kristina in the hospital and while she is no longer in a medically induced coma she has a tracheotomy and according to the doctors she has global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive," the mother of the late Whitney Houston said in a statement »

Scientist Discovers New Frog and It Looks Exactly Like Kermit!
If you've ever wondered what Kermit the Frog would look like if he were a real frog—here ya go! Although Kermit has always had a real place in our hearts, it turns out there's an actual, real-life amphibian roaming this earth with the same exact look as Jim Henson's creation. Scientist Brian Kubicki has discovered a new species of glass frog in the Talamanca mountains of Costa Rica called Hyalinobatrachium dianae that has an uncanny resemblance to everybody's favorite Muppet. Among the shocking similarities are the distinct bright green color and shape of the eyes. According to The Telegraph, "Mr Kubicki said that the new species, of which six specimens have been found so »
From 'Constantine' to 'Mindy' to 'Agent Carter' - TV Shows on the Bubble 2015
It's an odd BubbleWatch year. There isn't a "Chuck" or "Parks and Recreation" or "Community" that I'm going to get worked up about, nor am I expecting any word on "Hannibal" in mid-May, since Season 3 starts in late-May. What I'm saying is that I don't especially care what NBC does and that's unusual. [I guess I'm curious about what happens with "Constantine," since the pure numbers don't come close to justifying a renewal and yet producers are determined to keep fan hope alive and the DC Comics factor can't be ignored.] Once again, four of the five networks have been aggressive with their renewals already. The CW has renewed everything that aired in the fall and even tossed a pity renewal at "Beauty and the Beast," even though the current season is being dumped in the summer where nobody will watch it, at least not by those stodgy traditional measurements that The CW pretends don't exist or matter. [I'll hold out hope for "Hart of Dixie" even though we all know darned well that the most recent "Hart of Dixie" season finale was 100 percent a series finale and a good one at that.] Fox has renewed most of the stuff you care about, leaving only poor Hart Hanson on the Bubble with one show that probably will be back and another show that »

Theater Review: A Domesticated Renée Fleming in Living on Love
It’s not fair to judge a play by its bloopers; almost everything that has ever appeared onstage has had its share of dropped lines, missed entrances, Parkinsonian sets, or plummeting Spider-Men. And yet sometimes the bloopers are too expressive of a play’s overall blooperishness to resist. At a recent preview of Living on Love, a comedy starring Renée Fleming and Douglas Sills, two bottles of Champagne, meant to contribute to the fizzy, farcical atmosphere of a mismatched romantic dinner, turned out, upon uncorking in the second act, to be empty. Symbolic enough, but when the actor Jerry O’Connell, also in the scene, hustled the bottles offstage to be refilled, and Sills then tried to pour a toast, a few glugs of what was evidently tap water was all that fell into his glass. “Flat!” he ad-libbed, to a big laugh. It may have been the only genuine laugh of the night. »

Christopher Nolan Says His Filmmaking Process a ‘Combination of Intuition and Geometry’
Christopher Nolan described his filmmaking process as “some combination of intuition and geometry” in one of the Tribeca Talks series of public conversations at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.
“I don’t write a story outline,” he told a packed house of festivalgoers during the discussion with fellow director Bennett Miller (“Foxcatcher,” “Moneyball”). “Usually my answer right off the bat is that I work intuitively, but I draw a lot of diagrams when I work. I do a lot of thinking about etchings by Escher, for instance. That frees me, finding a mathematical model or a scientific model. I’ll draw pictures and diagrams that illustrate the movement or the rhythm than I’m after.”
Intuition, he noted, comes to the fore in his editing process. “I’ve always edited in a huge hurry, tried to catch that lightning in a bottle, just so the energy is there,” he said. “I »

Prince Harry Plays Wheelchair Football in Australia: See the Pics from Down Under!
Work hard, play hard seems to be Prince Harry's motto. While on military duty in Australia these past two weeks, the redheaded royal managed to dedicate some of his time Down Under to one of the country's favorite pastimes. The 30-year-old royal and some other members of the 1st Brigade worked up a sweat playing wheelchair Australian Football with ill and injured veterans from the Soldiers Recovery Centre, a cause near and dear to Harry's heart no matter which country he's in. And judging by video footage of the royal playing the competitive contact sport, it sure looked like the prince enjoyed the game, throwing passes to his teammates and flashing plenty of smiles. Capt.

Rumored 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' spinoff gets its rumored stars
Per media reports -- let's cite The Hollywood Reporter -- ABC and Marvel have settled on the two characters to serve as the focus of its untitled "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." spinoff. And I'm of two minds. One mind says that it's terrific that Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood will star in the potential "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." spinoff project that ABC and Marvel haven't said they're making. Palicki's Bobbi "Mockingbird" Morse and Blood's Lance Hunter have been two of the more consistently appealing characters in the second season of "S.H.I.E.L.D." and there is absolutely no question that I would watch an hour of TV each week more focused around their characters, former spouses still working together as flirting, bickering badasses. The other mind says that "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." has been better in its second season, but the additions of Palicki »

Cissy Houston Disputes Bobby Brown’s Claims, Says Bobbi Kristina Has ‘Irreversible Brain Damage’
Add another entry into the seemingly endless he-said, she-said exchange surrounding Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition. Just hours after an attorney for Bobby Brown — Bobbi Kristina’s father — issued a statement saying that the 22-year-old has shown “improvement,” Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother Cissy Houston pretty much dashed any hopes for a happy ending. Houston told TMZ on Monday that the daughter of Brown and deceased singer Whitney Houston is no longer in a medically induced coma. However, Houston said, Bobbi Kristina has “global and irreversible brain damage.” Also Read: Bobbi Kristina Brown's Fate 'Will Not Be Known for Years to Come, »
