Comic-Con is in full-swing right now, with San Diego being flooded by excited fans and members of the entertainment industry eager to get their latest big breaking news out. Today, Lionsgate is beyond estatic to let everyone know that pop sensation Sia is set to swing into Equestria for My Little Pony: The Movie. This long-awaited animated adventure also got a new release date, and will be in theaters around the world on October 6, 2017.
Playing the role of pony pop star Songbird Serenade, My Little Pony: The Movie, will be one of Sia's first forays into acting. She will contribute two brand new original songs to the film's soundtrack. Sia joins previously announced A-list talent alongside the Mane 6, including Emmy Award-winning, Golden Globe-nominated actress Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black), Golden Globe-winning actress Emily Blunt (Into the Woods, Gnomeo & Juliet), Tony,  Emmy Award-winning actress Kristen Chenoweth (Rio 2, The Peanuts Movie »
If this is the comedy Hollywood thinks millennials want, we’re screwed.
Mike and Dave Stangle are two hard-partying brothers whose frat boy antics always end up ruining the party. The boys have messed up enough family gatherings that their parents demand that they bring respectable “nice girls” as dates to their sister’s wedding in Hawaii so they don’t hit on other girls or do anything that could potentially destroy the big day.
The premise is very loosely based on the true story of the real-life Mike and Dave Stangle whose viral Craigslist ad for wedding dates led to a book and movie deal. (It doesn’t hurt to have a CAA trainee as a friend.) Hollywood felt there was enough fodder in their story for a movie, but it wears thin quick. What starts off as an adventure about two bros on a quest for dates turns into a battle of shenanigans between bros »

People behaving like animals and animals behaving like people. Two worlds collide in theatres this weekend!
Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates
You’ve got to love titles that really say it all. Yeah. What more can I say? We have Mike and then we have Dave. Guess what? They need wedding dates! Does it go well? Of course not! It wouldn't be much of a movie if it was just a simple Dm and everything was settled. See, Mike (Adam DeVine) and Dave (Zac Efron) have a bad rap for constantly ruining family events. In order to not add their sister’s Hawaii wedding to the list, their parents ask they find dates and behave themselves. Now where else does one put out the call for dates then on The Wendy Williams Show! This stunt grabs the attention of the disastrous Tatiana (Aubrey Plaza) and Alice (Anna Kendrick), who pretend »

Summer’s in full swing with big family gatherings and social events. It’s the perfect time for some raunchy laughs at the multiplex. Eleven years ago (no, really!) R-rated movie comedies made a big, big comeback when Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson were Wedding Crashers. Four years later, the lead up to nuptials ignited a comic trilogy with The Hangover. Then the ladies got in on the act just two years later with Bridesmaids. This weekend’s new flick doles out a bit from all those entrees in the funny flick buffet, expanding on a comedy staple (or main course in the food analogy), namely the comic team. This doesn’t quite harken back to Stan and Ollie or Bud and Lou, rather the inspiration may be a bit over twenty years ago to Harry and Lloyd, those Dumb & Dumber dudes, continuing through Harold and Kumar, on to various unions of Rogen, »

If it’s true that every generation gets the “Wedding Crashers” it deserves, then millennials have finally gotten some definitive proof that they’re doing alright. Starting with a timeless premise — young people are stupid — and spinning it into a broad, crass, and relentlessly amusing mid-summer surprise, “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” may not be the first Apatow-era comedy about twentysomethings coming to grips with the fact that they won’t live forever (and it’s certainly not the deepest, as it lingers in your memory for about as long as a Snapchat), but it might just be one of the funniest.
Very, very loosely based on the true story of short-lived viral sensations Mike (Adam Devine) and Dave (Ye Mighty Zac Efron) Stangle, this delightful work of idiocy introduces the Brothers Dim through rose-colored shot glasses, as the opening credits take us through all the family events that »

After catching word of Jennifer Lopez's recent comments about her on The Wendy Williams Show, Mariah Carey added fuel to their rumored feud when she dropped by Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday night and dissed the singer once again. When Andy Cohen straight up asked Mariah, "Do you know each other?", she frustratedly responded, "No!" The singer then went on to explain herself, adding, "You know what? I'm very forgetful. Apparently, I'm forgetful because I don't remember the fact that it was just like, 'Hi, I'm so and so.'" Watch the video above to see what Mariah says when asked if she thinks Jennifer is cool. »

Sherri Shepherd is all about moving forward. The comedienne was in good spirits during her visit to The Wendy Williams Show, where the talk show host couldn't help but notice Sherri's slimdown. "Did you get a breast reduction?" Wendy asked. Sherri repeated her question with a laugh, then quipped, "No, I lost 12 pounds and a husband!" She's referring, of course, to her ex Lamar Sally. The former spouses' divorce and custody battle played out very publicly, but Sherri didn't let it take a toll on her health. "I stressed for a minute," she told Wendy, "and you know, when you stress, you eat pizza and everything, but once I decided to say, 'Hey, I forgive. I »

Wendy Williams isn't buying any of the lemonade that Beyoncé is selling. While many people have speculated that "Becky with the good hair"—a lyric from Bey's new album—references Jay Z's alleged involvement with Rachel Roy, the daytime host called the whole thing into question during a taping of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday. In fact, she even insinuated the power couple paid off the fashion designer to take part in the drama in order to help sell more records. "So Rachel Roy, first of all, you're not this fighting girl," Williams began. "Unless you're on Jay Z and Beyoncé's payroll, and they pay you to mix it up for I guess sales for the »
When it comes to teaching young models how to work it, Naomi Campbell loves to be a mentor, and she doesn't let anything get in the way. The 45-year-old supermodel sat down on The Wendy Williams Show to chat about her career, love and the up-and-coming models of the moment, opening up about how she's helped mentor both Bella Hadid and Gigi Hadid. In fact, Campbell revealed that she taught them both how to strut their stuff on the runway...in a hotel hallway, of all places! "Bella asked me last year if I'd mentor her and I said yes," Campbell explained to Williams. "I love [her and Gigi] both. They're really great girls. They're hardworking girls." She »
Daytime TV’s best and brightest got bittersweet news on Thursday afternoon.
While CBS and The Young and the Restless led the list of networks and programs up for 2016 Daytime Emmy awards — with 77 and 27 nods respectively — the announcement was tempered by the news that the ceremony will not be televised.

“After last year’s critically successful Daytime [Emmys] telecast [on Pop], it is with great disappointment that The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announces that there will not be a broadcast of the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, »
CBS’ “Young and the Restless” and ABC’s “General Hospital” lead the list of nominees for this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards, which will not be airing on TV for the second time in the past three years.
The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has nixed plans for a telecast of the ceremony because of the cost. Last year NATAS set a two-year deal with Pop, the CBS and Lionsgate-owned cabler, for telecast of the show after a debacle in 2014 when the ceremony aired as a live webcast.
But NATAS decided that the six-figure cost of producing the ceremony for TV was too high even with the license fee offered by Pop. The New York-based academy is believed to be in discussions for another webcast partner.
Low ratings have taken a toll on the Daytime Emmy Awards’ fortunes. The ceremony bounced around from CBS to ABC to CW to »

A thousand condolences for Wendy Williams' son, Kevin Hunter Jr. The 51-year-old host of The Wendy Williams Show recently revealed on Conan that about two years ago, when he was 13, he learned the hard way what can happen if you enter someone's room unannounced...namely her and husband Kevin Hunter's. "We don't close doors at our house," Williams said. "We walk hard in our house...or we're always clearing our throats. That's the warning sign that 'here I come.' You don't just tiptoe to somebody's room. I respect him, so when I come to see his room, you hear it...'Kevin, here I come!' And I walk slow to give him a chance to »
It’s been over a decade since Mariah Carey told the paparazzi that she “didn’t know” who Jennifer Lopez was, and now, it seems, she’s at it again. On The Wendy Williams Show last week, Lopez was asked about the comment and she responded, “She is forgetful I guess! We’ve met many times.” Carey, though, either is more forgetful than it seems […]

Just days after Jennifer Lopez commented on her alleged feud with Mariah Carey, Mariah clapped back in a way that only she could. TMZ caught up with the singer on her way out of the Venice Family Clinic gala in La on Monday night and, after signing an autograph, Mariah was asked to touch on the whole "I don't know her" remark that she's given about Jennifer over the years - before getting into her car, she simply said, "I still don't know her!" and was rushed away. During an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show last week, Jennifer weighed in on Mariah's famous line, saying, "She does say that. She's forgetful, I guess! We've met many times." It all started back in the early 2000s; during an interview, Mariah was asked to share her thoughts on the "Jenny From the Block" singer and gave the now-iconic quip. Rumors of »

And the feud continues! It's been over a decade since the iconic moment in which Mariah Carey told a few members of the paparazzi that she "didn't know" who Jennifer Lopez was...but the drama has been reignited (or perhaps the flames never really went out to begin with). In case you missed it, J.Lo chatted about the comment on The Wendy Williams Show last week and explained, "[Mariah] is forgetful I guess! We've met many times." Apparently Mariah's memory has grown worse—either that or there really is some bad blood between the two divas because her latest comment throws some serious shade in J.Lo's direction. According to TMZ, Mariah was leaving the »
