Former ‘Bachelorette’ Star Says She Was Drugged and ‘Accosted’ During the Show
Meredith Phillips, a former star of ABC’s “The Bachelorette,” has come forward saying she was drugged and “accosted” during her time on the show.

Phillips, who served as the Bachelorette on the show’s second season in 2004, said in an interview on the Reality Steve podcast that a massage therapist for the show drugged and “accosted” her in the tub of the room where she was staying.

Phillips said the woman, hired by one of the show’s producers, gave her a pill that made her drowsy.

“The last thing I remember is she got naked and she was in the tub with me, rubbing my back, and rubbing areas that she probably shouldn’t have,” she said, adding that she woke up naked with little memory of what had transpired.

'The Chew' Cancelled Nearly Six Months After Mario Batali's Scandal to Make Way for More 'Gma'

'The Chew' Cancelled Nearly Six Months After Mario Batali's Scandal to Make Way for More 'Gma'
It's time to say goodbye to a daytime favorite. On May 23, ABC announced that they have cancelled The Chew after seven years to make way for a third hour of Good Morning America, which will take over the 1 p.m. ET/ 12 p.m. CT/PT time slot.

The sad news comes nearly six months after one of the hosts, Mario Batali, was fired following his sexual misconduct scandal, and one year after Daphne Oz exited the program.

"After seven seasons, 1454 episodes, multiple Emmy nominations and two Emmy Awards, The Chew will cease production at the end of this season but will continue to air as planned until September with all-new episodes airing in June," said the press release. Since Gma is the "No. 1 morning show," they believe "there is great opportunity for viewers and advertisers in expanding to a third hour.” The company called the move bittersweet, and they made

Emilia Clarke Just Gave Us a Warning About Her Final Scene in Game of Thrones
We won't see Emilia Clarke back on our TV screens until 2019, when the last season of Game of Thrones premieres, but the 31-year-old Solo actress recently teased what we can expect from the final few episodes. Let's just say we're shook. While speaking to Vanity Fair, Clarke said Daenerys Targaryen's last scene "f*cked me up . . . knowing that is going to be a lasting flavor in someone's mouth of what Daenerys is."

Are you hyperventilating yet? Um, yeah, us too. This isn't the first time Clarke has kept fans on the edge of their seats about the highly anticipated finale, which will close out what has been one of HBO's most popular shows. "I've become an emotional wreck on set," she told Good Morning America cohosts Robin Roberts, Michael Strahan, and George Stephanopoulos. "They're like 'Emilia, it's Ok,' and I'm like, 'But it's the last time!'"

Our Top Five Ving Rhames Movies of His Career

You can either love him or hate but Ving Rhames is undeniably cool on the set and off. He’s got that smooth, bass voice that makes him sound like someone that might just breeze through life being as chill as possible and that kind of attitude that can be calm under pressure no matter what’s happening in his life. It could be that his life is very different and he’s a different person when the cameras aren’t on, but more or less he seems like a very smooth individual. Throughout his career, and he’s had a great one thus far,

That noose around Philip and Elizabeth’s throats started to get awfully tight in the penultimate episode of The Americans. Is it finally time for them to pull the ripcord and run back into the arms of Mother Russia?

Stan is connecting the last few dots about his neighbors: He searches a FBI computer database for them, but comes up empty, and drops in unannounced on Philip at his travel agency to snoop around. He even calls up Pastor Tim (!) down in Buenos Aires and asks him, “Is there anything I should know,

‘The Americans’ Review: ‘Jennings, Elizabeth’ Brilliantly Keeps Viewers Teetering on the Edge of Chaos

‘The Americans’ Review: ‘Jennings, Elizabeth’ Brilliantly Keeps Viewers Teetering on the Edge of Chaos
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “The Americans” Season 6, Episode 9, “Jennings, Elizabeth.”]

It’s happening, people! This is not a drill: At the end of “Jennings, Elizabeth,” the title character gets a call from her husband, packs a go bag for the road, and she’s on the run!

After a tense hour packed with close calls — decisions that, had they gone the other way, would’ve ensured the Jennings’ capture instead of merely triggering their flight — the penultimate episode of the series started the countdown clock that will end next Wednesday night: Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth (Keri Russell) are ready to skip town, but who do they tell and who will come with them? Paige (Holly Taylor) is livid with her mother and might resist packing up with her parents right now. Henry’s (Keidrich Sellati) school might be too far away.

And what about Stan (Noah Emmerich)? His theory has been rebutted at every turn,
