SNL Drags Jussie Smollett in pretty awesome skit

I’m only peripherally even aware of who’s on Saturday Night Live anymore, let alone catch an episode. But when I saw they hit out on the Jussie Smollett case I just had to indulge. Worth it.

Playing off the ridiculousness of the stories claims, the skit opens on producers of Empire arguing with Jussie’s agent (played by host, Sandra Oh) about whether he can return, meanwhile Smollett himself seems to be late.  When he arrives ….  (The video is below, if you just want to know what happened, read on)

When suddenly Jussie, played by Chris Redd, busts through the door wearing a MAGA hat, a black eye and a plastic bag in his hands.  He claims he’s been assaulted.   A claim quickly dismissed by the others in the room.  Smollett then brings attention to the bag in his hand saying “what the?” “What is that?” Oh asks. “I don’t know, I think it’s a bag of clues?”  The others in the roam moan with disbelief.

Jussie sorts through the bag pulling out some Colgate White Stripes “You think that’s racial?”  Three letter K’s and the purple teletubby, to which he notes “that’s the gay one”.   It’s then he’s told he can’t return to the show and his agent is dropping him as well.

So well done, SNL.  You took some chances with this one and while your show is still shitty overall, I enjoyed it.

2 Important Crime docs coming to Lifetime

2 Important Crime docs coming to Lifetime

Lifetime is the gold standard when it comes to turning crimes into over acted, but fascinating tv movies, so its little surprise they’re bringing their A game to the popular Crime Documentary genre.

First up is “From Darkness to Light”, starring Leah Remini (no, it’s not about Scientology) and 3 time Olympic gold winner Aly Raisman.  Aly was one of the dozens of Olympic athletes to come forward and say that Olympic doctor Larry Nassar had been molesting her for some time.

Raisman and Remini hope to help victims of sexual assault find their voice in order to start healing and turn from victim to survivor.   There’s no word yet on the release date.

The other Documentary, which I personally am totally watching, is “Smart Justice: The Jayme Closs Case”.  Jayme Closs, if you don’t remember, was the young girl abducted from her home after her parents were murdered by a madman who chose her based on something so insane as seeing her board a bus one day.

Jayme spent, then 13, spent 88 days with her capture before being rescued.   And the interviewer is none other than Elizabeth Smart (hence the title), who also was also infamously abducted by a religious madman in 2002. “Smart Justice” comes to Lifetime on April 27.

Both  stories need to be told and are just riveting.

The KUWTK Season 16 Trailer is gold

The KUWTK Season 16 Trailer is gold

Every year after the last episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians ends I sigh and tell myself I’m done with them. I can’t watch another minute of that family and their shenanigans, it ends now.  And then several months later I see the trailer and suddenly time slows down and that premiere date seems too far away.

Anyway, oh muh gawd.  Khloe saying “Tristan may love me, whatever that means, but he doesn’t respect me at all.” Well said.  I wish more people could just accept that about their significant others when they get run around on. Sure, he may love you, but you are far from the top of his list of priorities.

Anyway, she’s a mess and it’s going to be the Year of the Khloe, so prepare for those pouty overdrawn lips to quiver when the gang returns with a new season on March 31st. SO SOOOON!

Mel B says she slept with Ginger Spice in the 90’s

Mel B says she slept with Ginger Spice in the 90’s

So Mel B gets cut from America’s Got Talent and suddenly is in need of an attention booster.  Enter the king attention whore, Piers Morgan.

Piers has a show on Britains ITV and while taping an interview with the singer formally known as Scary Spice a steamy detail “slipped out”.    According to Mel B, she had a sexual encounter with band mate Geri Halliwell.

According to the Mail on Sunday, which posted a transcript of the interview, Piers asked Mel B, “Did you or didn’t you with Geri Halliwell…did you sleep with her?”

“Yeah, we all slept in a bed together but not ‘like that’ all of us,” the 43-year-old singer replied.

“Did you sleep with Geri ‘like that’? Piers asked.

Mel B nodded and smiled, and said, “She’s going to hate me for this because she’s all posh in her country house and her husband. But it’s a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it.”

“It was just that once,” Mel B continued. “And hopefully when Geri gets asked that, which hopefully she will after this, she won’t deny it. Because it was just a fun thing.”

You better hope she doesn’t care.

Rejoice! The Cast of Clueless reunited at a C2E2!

Heathers, Legally Blonde, Mean Girls… all major contributes to the awesome chick flick genre, but at the top there can be only one.  Clueless.

I can recite it. I often do. So imagine my hearts reaction to seeing the core gang (Rip Brittany Murphy. And Stacy Dash is just nuts) all sat side by side on stage over the weekend.  Squueeaaalll!

Breckin Meyer, Donald Faison, Paul Rudd and Alicia Silverstone

C2E2 (Chicago’s Comic and Entertainment Expo) has getting all kinds of casts back together, but Clueless took the cake.

The four took questions regarding rumors of a sequel, to which Alicia said “I’m not involved in that at all”.  They spoke about Paul Rudd never aging. He says inside he’s an 80 year old man and “nothing but darkness and lotion”. And, of course, they mentioned Brittany Murphy, who died in 2009 at the age of 32.

Alicia recalled Murphy’s most famous lines from the film, in which she played Tai Frasier: “I love when she says, ‘You’re a virgin who can’t drive.’ It’s just one of my favorite moments of the whole movie. It’s just, her face scrunches up so good.”

Breckin Meyer, who played Travis Birkenstock, Tai’s crush, also spoke of her. “Ridiculously talented. Like, you see Tai, and then you watch 8 Mile, and you’re like, ‘That’s the same person?’” he said.

Donald Faison, who played Murray, Dionne’s (Stacey Dash) boyfriend in the movie, added, “She could sing, she could dance.”

You can check out the entire event on Youtube and of course the gang shared pics on the gram:

Cardi B trademarks ‘Okurrr’

Cardi B trademarks ‘Okurrr’

Cardi B has taken the steps necessary to trademark her peculiar way of saying “OK”.  Rather, “Okuuurrree”!

Word is Cardi has filed paperwork with the US Patent offices to make sure anyone using the word has to come up with the money.  Which is as ridiculous as when Paris Hilton trademarked “Hot”.

In Cardi’s case, she plans on making a clothing line and want to emblazon the frocks with the word and in order to make sure everyone else can’t just run out and make the same shirt, shoes or necklace, she has to trademark it.

The “Money” hitmaker previously described the word as the sound a “cold pigeon in New York City” makes.
