‘Empire’ Dropped Jussie Smollett, But They’re Filming Right Where His Alleged Attack Happened

I don’t believe for a second that Jussie Smollett was attacked by two large black men from Nigeria in whiteface wearing MAGA hats who called him the n-word. This is because I’m not an idiot.

Things really went poorly for Smollett after everyone came to the same conclusion and he doubled down on his story. It ended with him getting fired from Empire and even though the original prosecutor didn’t pursue the charges against him he’s still facing civil and possibly criminal charges from the incident.

The worst part for Smollett, however, might be that Empire, the hit show he was on until he allegedly pulled this whole “fake hate crime” stunt, was spotted by TMZ filming right where it occurred. Or didn’t occur if you’re not an idiot.

That is just ice fuckin’ cold. This is like when your girlfriend dumps you and her new boyfriend sends you a video of her sucking his dick but at the end the camera pans up and they’re outside your house with an entire Hollywood production crew. There are gaffers and grips and script supervisors just walking around outside Jussie’s window. There are going to be crane shots that will blot out the sun while he’s trying to watch The Price is Right because what else is he going to do all day. It just seems unnecessary.
I’ve been saying for a while that Smollett and Lori Loughlin should get the same punishment, and that it should be a slap on the wrist because neither of them did anything particularly egregious. They both got fired from their popular shows to avoid controversy, so fair is fair. But Hallmark isn’t flying Lori to Vancouver and making her watch them film When Calls the Heart without her, because that is some serious Godfather shit and they’re nice at Hallmark, unlike the gangsters at Disney. Jussie is lucky he got fired before the merger and Mickey Mouse didn’t break his fucking legs.

Disney Sounds Like They’re Going to Axe Taika Waititi’s Anti-Nazi Comedy ‘Jojo Rabbit’, Anything Else Good or Interesting

Man, I wish someone had warned me that there might be negative consequences to Disney buying Fox and controlling like 50% of the American film industry. I just thought it would be really cool for Wolverine to be an Avenger.

Well, Marvel is making a Fantastic Four film and X-Men films, but it may have left fans feeling a bit like Thanos at the end of Infinity War.

Those chickens are coming home to roost as Disney has turned out to be much, much more risk-averse than Fox. Fox Searchlight has been distributing critically-acclaimed independent films for a long time, and many of them are the kind of thoughtful, small, emotional pictures Disney is smothering out with things like the “live-action” Lion King film that made a billion dollars in the widest opening for any film ever even though everyone agrees it’s visually terrible.

It could even impact Taika Waititi, who has been a studio guy for Disney and turned out a big hit tent pole film with Thor: Ragnarok and is giving them lady Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder because Disney doesn’t really understand what exactly it is that women like about the Thor movies.

It’s that.

But he’s at risk of having a film shelved as Variety reports Disney is looking to play it safe.

Disney is prioritizing making more broadly commercial projects, which includes ongoing work on sequels to James Cameron’s “Avatar” and starry safe bets like the on-screen reunion of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck in the drama “The Last Duel.”

Normally the reward for being a studio guy and making the big tentpole movies is you get to make your less-profitable passion projects that are, let’s be honest, probably better movies. But Disney sounds like they really want to dump Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, in which the director plays Hitler.

The only bright spot for the film operation would seem to be Fox Searchlight, the long-operating darling of the indie film world, which will test Disney’s patience with the wacky Hitler drama “Jojo Rabbit,” from “Thor: Ragnarok” director Taika Waititi, this fall. The movie is expected to be a major awards contender.

The scathing takedown of Nazism may, however, prove a little too edgy for Disney brass accustomed to producing movies suitable for parents and kids. Searchlight has started to screen the film for its new parent company. Halfway through one recent viewing one executive grew audibly uncomfortable, worrying aloud that the material would alienate Disney fans. His unease may have been over the film’s cutting-edge satire, but it was also an expression of the culture clash taking place as the two studios embark on their new union.

Keep in mind Disney distributed Pulp Fiction and the world didn’t end. And don’t think that just because Deadpool has been consistently beloved by critics and audiences and has been the most profitable R-Rated film franchise ever that it’s safe.

The studio is also grappling with how to fit the very R-rated Deadpool into its PG-13-rated Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The goal is to find a way for the character to move seamlessly between “Avengers” spinoffs and bloody, profane stand-alone adventures.

Just do exactly that. Or don’t put Deadpool in the Avengers films because he’s a comedy character who constantly breaks the fourth wall and trying to play him straight never, ever works. He’s the Bugs Bunny of Marvel Comics.

It does make me think, though, that if any company other than Disney was as big as Disney, they’d be looking for a way to convince the public to take them seriously as a company that could produce memorable films with real artistry to them; instead, Disney is worried that the films it inherited from Fox that have artistry and nuance and appeal to adults who think and want to be challenged might hurt ticket sales for its baby films it’s convinced adults they can’t live without.

Brody Jenner Spotted Out With ‘Playboy’ Playmate Josie Canseco

Brody Jenner just got out of a relationship, but it didn’t take him long to move on with Josie Canseco, a former Playboy Playmate and daughter of former baseball player Jose Canseco, at least according to TMZ.

Our ‘Hills’ sources say Brody and Josie hit it off, and have been hanging out A LOT over the past few weeks, kissing each other and showing tons of PDA around friends. They seem to be taking things somewhat slow, we’re told, but it’s clear they’re romantically involved.

That’s one way to show up your ex having a fling with Miley Cyrus.

Let’s take a look at Brody’s new paramour.

Almost makes up for the fact that she was in Playboy during their ill-advised “no nudity” period. It’s almost cheating to say you’re a Playmate when you snuck in the titty-free back window.

13 TV Couples With Absolutely No Chemistry

Some TV couples suck. There, we said it. 

Despite trying to push some couples to endgame status, some are very clearly not that into each other. 

The Hollywood Gossip has rounded up 13 couples who have a grand total of zero chemistry. 

Sorry ... not sorry. 

 

1. Kara and Mon-El - Supergirl

Kara and mon el supergirl
Mon-El was one of the worst characters on Supergirl, and it was largely because the producers tried to put force them together. Mon-El was officially exiled from the series about a year after his debut.

2. Jackson and Maggie - Grey's Anatomy

Jackson and maggie greys anatomy
Jackson and Maggie were believable as friends, but not so much as a couple. They need to give up on their relationship, or they run the risk of not being friends ever again.

3. Ray and Felicity - Arrow

Ray and felicity arrow
On a show that's all about the relationship between Oliver and Felicity, Felicity's short-lived relationship with Ray felt like a mere plot device to throw in some drama. There was a severe lack of chemistry between the characters.

4. George and Izzie - Grey's Anatomy

George and izzie greys anatomy
George pursued Izzie pretty much from the get-go on Grey's Anatomy, but there was nothing there, and fans picked up on that. It's just a shame that Shonda Rhimes did not.

5. Zelena and Hades - Once Upon a Time

Zelena and hades once upon a time
Just when it seemed like Zelena was on the road to becoming one of the good guys, she decided to embark on a relationship with Hades. It was ... tedious. Two villains don't make a right.

6. Bill and Sookie - True Blood

Bill and sookie true blood
Bill and Sookie were the central couple on this HBO series, but fans were shipping Sookie and Eric from the get-go. That shows you how crappy the OG pairing was.

Jenelle Evans: I’m Finally Launching My Makeup Line, Dude!

Well, let it not be said that we here at The Hollywood Gossip can't admit when we're wrong.

For years, Jenelle Evans has been talking about her makeup line, and for years, we've been saying it'll probably never happen.

Well, it looks like we were mistaken.

Multiple sources are now indicating that Evans and her team have selected a launch date for JE Cosmetics.

But will the products actually wind up in stores this time, or will this launch date quietly come and go, like so many others over the years?

Here's what we know about the situation thus far:

1. Finally

Jenelle takes a selfie
Yes, folks, it's all happening! Jenelle Evans is finally launching her makeup line! But some fans are still skeptical that the products will actually be made available to the public.

2. Looking Back

Jenelle in leggings
Jenelle, of course, has been teasing the release of her makeup line for YEARS now, and a pattern has emerged in her promotional efforts.

3. Makeup Shake-Ups

Jenelle is missing teeth
It goes something like this: Jenelle announces a vague launch schedule (a certain month or season); said month or season comes and goes; Jenelle never explains why the launch didn't happen.

4. But This Time ...

Jenelle is cut
This time, however, things are somewhat different, in that Jenelle has announced a specific date for the release of her long-, long-awaited makeup line.

5. Start Getting In Line Now!

Jenelle evans just chills
According to announcements made on her Instagram page and some event called Miami Swim Week, JE Cosmetics will be available for purchase on September 19!

6. Inauspicious Start

Unfortunately, the launch is already off to a rocky start, as the announcement has been deleted from Jenelle's Instagram page.

Kate Upton Looks So Sexy In Unretouched Health Magazine Spread

 

Kate Upton is definitely a natural beauty, and she lets her God-given good looks shine on in a new spread for Health Magazine. When you look as hot as Kate Upton, showing your un-Photoshopped self isn’t so much brave as it is a no-brainer, but still, she claims it was a difficult decision to bare her unretouched self:

We live in a world where we are constantly surrounded by retouching and filters, and we don’t even realize it – it’s become the new norm, creating unrealistic expectations. That’s why I loved the idea of doing this shoot unretouched, to take a step towards embracing our true, raw self. Months after giving birth, this wasn’t the easiest choice… but a choice I thought was important for my daughter and for women everywhere.

Again, this would seem a little braver it was coming from Sandra Bernhard, but we still stan. Upton isn’t showing off nearly as much of herself as we would like here, but we still get some great cleavage peeks (in the cover above and accompanying video below) and it’s also just great to see her with such a big smile on her perfect inspiring face. But also, next time, vagina plz? #StayBodyPositive

Briana DeJesus: I’m NOT Friends With Jenelle Evans Anymore!

It's been over three months since Jenelle Evans was fired from Teen Mom 2.

During that time, both colleagues and fans of the show have rejoiced in Jenelle's absence -- and it's not hard to see why.

Jenelle Evans is Sad

After all, Evans didn't get canned for showing up late to the set.

No, she was let go after her husband, David Eason, shot and killed the family dog, a grim development that prompted a CPS investigation.

That investigation led to Jenelle losing custody of her kids after authorities determined she had failed to provide a safe and stable environment.

Not exactly the sort of situation that inspires the fervent support of one's co-workers.

Briana and Jenelle

But through it all, one fellow Teen Mom has stuck by Jenelle's side.

Evans' friendship with Briana DeJesus began even before DeJesus joined the TM2 cast.

But as Bri revealed earlier this week, that relationship is officially a thing of the past.

When a fan asked on Twitter if DeJesus still speaks with Jenelle, the Orlando resident did not mince words:

Briana Takes a Selfie

“No we don’t,” Briana responded.

“She’s upset with me. A blogger asked me a question (if Mtv will bring Jenelle back) and I said not as of now and she’s upset I said that.”

Bri later elaborated on her comment in an interview with Radar Online:

“Jenelle got mad at me because I was asked in an interview if I thought she’d come back to the show, and I said at this point I didn’t think that would happen,” Briana told the site, adding:

“Based on what I’ve been told I still stand by that she would not be back.”

Jenelle Evans and Child

Apparently, Jenelle was so upset by the innocuous remark that she reached out to DeJesus:

“She sent me a message telling me she can’t trust me,” Briana continued.

“She told me that I’m not going to be invited to her makeup line launch because of what I said. I said okay to that, because what can I do? I said the truth and I guess that offended her.”

DeJesus seems mostly accepting of her former friend's decision, but she also clearly believes she deserved better treatment from Jenelle:

Briana DeJesus: A Selfie

“The irony is I’m the only one on the cast who had her back and was her friend and filmed with her when no one else would. But if she wants to act like that, so be it,” Briana said.

“I have no issues with Jenelle personally, but she’s chosen to have an issue with me and that’s her prerogative. I wish her the best.”

Briana speaks the truth in that respect.

On social media and in numerous interviews, Bri was Jenelle's most outspoken backer in the wake of her firing:

Jenelle Evans: All Smiles??

“I am sad for her,” Briana said at the time.

“I wish there was some kind of compromise for all of this. She worked her ass off for so long to just be thrown to the wolves,” she said in an interview with Radar Online.

“I hope she gets everything she ever wanted and I just want her to flourish!”

DeJesus encouraged fans of the show to be compassionate in their assessment of Jenelle:

Briana Is All Smiles

“While lots of people are judging, they need to take a step back and remember that they’ve never lived her life,” she said.

“They don’t know the exact ins and outs of what she’s dealing with just because of what they think they’ve seen on TV.

"Everyone’s situation is different, but I really hope this all works out, especially for the kids’ sake.”

Unfortunately, DeJesus is now learning the same hard lesson that Anthony Scaramucci learned about Donald Trump -- eventually, the person who betrayed everyone else will betray you, too.
