Roseanne Barr Releases Official Statement on Being Killed Off ‘The Conners,’ Slams ABC for ‘Grim and Morbid’ Decision
[Warning: If you can’t tell by the headline above, spoilers follow.]

ABC’s “Roseanne” spinoff “The Conners” kicked off its season premiere with confirmation that the character once played by Roseanne Barr had been killed off the series after suffering an opioid overdose from pills she was taking to treat a knee injury. Barr took to her Twitter page for an instant reaction to her character’s fate following the conclusion of the episode, defiantly tweeting, “I Ain’T Dead, Bitches!!!!” The actress then published a longer, more official statement along with her rabbi, Shmuley Boteach.

“While we wish the very best for the cast and production crew of ‘The Conners,’ all of whom are deeply dedicated to their craft and were Roseanne’s cherished colleagues, we regret that ABC chose to cancel Roseanne by killing off the Roseanne Conner character,” Barr and Boteach wrote. “That it was done through an opioid overdose lent an unnecessary grim and morbid dimension to an otherwise happy family show.

The Flash Is Definitely Getting His Own Movie, but We Won't See It For Quite a Long Time

The Flash Is Definitely Getting His Own Movie, but We Won't See It For Quite a Long Time
While Justice League was mostly a flop (due in part to Superman's weirdly CGI'd face), there was one thing that many fans and nonfans alike could agree on: Ezra Miller is simply delightful as the slightly awkward but nonetheless endearing Barry Allen aka the Flash. Whether it was good writing, Miller's supreme comic timing, or a mixture of both, it's hard to watch the film without feeling at least a little bit charmed by the character. That's why you might be pleased to know a standalone film starring the Flash is, indeed, in the works. The bad news is that it's a ways off. The goods news is we have a bunch of exciting details to satiate your hunger.

Instead of naming the film after the hero, this project is actually called Flashpoint. It's based on a comic book of the same name that totally changed the

Netflix Officially Grants Elite a Second Season

Over the past few years, Netflix has been expanding its original programming more and more. Now, they've even begun expanding into foreign-language original series. The first was Cable Girls, a historical drama about 1920s phone operators which is headed into its fourth season. For its second Spanish-language original drama, Netflix has produced Elite, a Gossip Girl-esque teen soap. Set in one of the most exclusive private schools in Spain, the contemporary drama follows a handful of working-class scholarship students who are thrown into this privileged, high-drama milieu.

The series debuted on Friday, Oct. 5 with an eight-episode first season. But as we all know, it can be frustrating to fall in love with a show, only to have it never see a second season. So will Netflix be producing another season of Elite? At first Netflix didn't want to comment one way or another, likely because the streaming giant wanted

Destroyer Is Slated to Be a Major Oscars Contender, and Now There's a Trailer
There's a high chance you've heard very little about Nicole Kidman's next big film, Destroyer. That's because it's slated for a limited release on Dec. 25 and has only just begun to make its quiet film festival rounds. Rest assured though, it may just be one of the big contenders during award season. Nicole Kidman, who looks shocking in some realistic old-lady makeup, plays a cop who must reckon with her past when some very dastardly skeletons come out of the closet. Oh, and it also stars Sebastian Stan, Toby Kebbell, and Tatiana Maslany. Sounds like a season of True Detective, right? But don't take our word for it - the trailer above should be plenty to pique your interest.

There's 1 Important Rule That Keeps Most Royals From Adopting Children

  • Popsugar
Royals adopting dogs? Totally acceptable (and totally adorable). But what about royals adopting children? Before the news of Meghan Markle's pregnancy made headlines, there were rumors that Meghan and Prince Harry might consider adopting, given Meghan's age and the couple's philanthropic interests. Though no one in the British royal family is adopted or has ever adopted a child, would Meghan and Harry have been allowed to do so?

It may go against the traditions of the British monarchy, but there is no law against a royal family member adopting a child. However, by law, the Act of Settlement states that succession to the throne is a blood descendant only. Adopted children are not given succession rights, because in order to occupy the throne, you must be a Protestant descendant of the Electress Sophia, the mother of

Keira Knightley Gets Mistaken for Natalie Portman, Britney Spears and Other Stars
Keira Knightley says she's mistaken for other stars in public "all the time." One of them is Natalie Portman, and that's not surprising; Knightley was actually cast as a handmaiden and decoy to the star's character Queen Padmé Amidala in the 1999 movie Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace due to her resemblance to the actress.  "I've been chased through an airport as Natalie Portman," Knightley said on The Late Late Show on Tuesday. "I mean, [I get mistaken for] Natalie Portman a lot. I did the Star Wars thing." Fans have also mistaken Knightley with fellow English actresses. "I've been chased through...
