When you hear that cast members from Charmed are fighting, you kind of expect it to be Rose McGowan and Alyssa Milano at each other’s throats over how Milano threw the #metoo movement under the bus for Joe Biden. But the current Charmed kerfuffle isn’t between the original cast and the reboot cast after Rose McGowan said she didn’t like the reboot.
It started when McGowan and Hollie Marie Combs complained about the show being rebooted without them, and without asking them to be involved, which they thought was essentially trading on the name of the brand they built to sell an inferior product. They joked that their series had been removed from Netflix so people didn’t confuse the new series with the one with the “old people.” People who saw the George Clooney Batman movies or The Amazing Spider-Man films will know exactly what they mean.
Sarah Jeffery of the new cast decided that the only reason someone wouldn’t like the new Charmed reboot would be racism and tweeted about it, accusing the former stars of “putting down women of color.”
2/2 I truly hope they find happiness elsewhere, and not in the form of putting down other WOC. I would be embarrassed to behave this way. Peace and love to y’all. https://t.co/MuyZCZjbCp

If you thought Rose McGowan was going to stay silent and just take that, you don’t know Rose McGowan. She took on Harvey Weinstein and his army of spies, she’s not afraid of a CW actor.
Here’s how McGowan responded on her Instagram Story, via People:
“Dear Sarah Jeffery, I honestly had no idea who you were til you tweeted,” McGowan wrote in her post. “I have been too busy fighting monsters & fighting for a massive Cultural Reset to notice who’s in the reboot. Absolutely nothing to do with race, that’s quite a stretch you took. I’m beyond glad any WOC has a well paying job. Hell yes to that. I’m sure you are a great actress.”
She continued: “‘My quibble (google it) is about execs & producers & @wb network trading on years of my work & name in such a cynical and obvious way – a money grab to cash in on the Charmed name. I do not care that they remade it, I have far bigger things I’m dealing with. I do not nor will I watch a show I disagree with on principle.”
“This is not ego trashing the reboot, this is a criticism of creators … with little to no imagination making bank off of years of us busting our ass to create a legacy that you are actually profiting off of as well,” McGown wrote. “I care that original fans weren’t listened to. I care that Hollywood won’t stop making remakes that don’t need to be remade. It’s a formula that’s gone on for too long.”
Hollie Marie Combs also responded to the accusation in a much more blunt way, saying “That’s some bullshit.”
That’s some bullshit. And a lot of it. Clearly. People speaking, excuse me typing, derogatory accusations of a person’s character despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary because of a difference in opinions about a tv show is just plain wrong. And also personal gain honey.

I’m on team old people here. Reboots, by definition, are either just retreading the same old stories or have a different enough premise that they could be a new series and are just trading on an established name trying to bring in an existing audience. It’s not to say that they’re bad, but CW’s DC Comics shows have gone out of their way to include actors from previous adaptations, including bringing John Wesley Shipp onto Flash as Jay Garrick, the first Flash and having Batman: The Animated Series Star Kevin Conroy play Batman in Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Charmed seems to want to have its cake and eat it to by using the name of the previous series to bring in old fans while also trying to distance itself from the show, which I never thought was very good but had a very engaged cult following. The new cast clearly has no respect for what came before them, at any rate, and I think Ghostbusters proved that calling people who don’t like your crappy reboot bigots isn’t exactly the best marketing strategy.

Timothée Chalamet Embarrassed by Photos Kissing Lily-Rose Depp, Not the Whole Peaches and Cream Thing
Timothée Chalamet is most famous for fucking a peach and that is never going to change. He can win an Oscar and 20 years later people are going to see him and say “Hey, aren’t you the guy who fucked the peach?” Don’t believe me? What’s the first thing you think of when I say the name Jason Biggs?
If I was famous for fucking a peach or really anything else that’s not a person, I don’t think I’d have the capacity to be embarrassed by anything else, but Chalamet told GQ that pictures of him making out with Lily-Rose Depp were so embarrassing he never would have considered doing them for PR, as some people suggested.
“I went to bed that night thinking that was one of the best days of my life,” Timothée told me. “I was on this boat all day with someone I really loved, and closing my eyes, I was like, indisputably, ‘That was great.’ And then waking up to all these pictures, and feeling embarrassed, and looking like a real nob? All pale? And then people are like: This is a P.R. stunt. A P.R. stunt?! Do you think I’d want to look like that in front of all of you?!”
I don’t know about you, but I find kissing Johnny Depp’s daughter a lot less embarrassing than fucking a peach. Hell, Kevin Smith’s daughter and that hot actress from A.P. Bio they’re friends with also rank way below fruits and vegetables on the old embarrassment scale.
I honestly cannot think of any human being I’d be embarrassed to be seen kissing if I were famous for fucking a peach. Even President Trump, who is spray painted to be the color of a fruit and is going to rallies talking about how he’ll make out with dudes now to prove how immune to COVID he is, sounds like a better proposition to me.

Britney Spears has been involved with a protracted legal battle with her father Jamie over the future of her conservatorship; it appears that the singer wants it ended but if norm she doesn’t want her father to be the sole conservator. Spears’ fans have been vocal in wanting her conservatorship ended, and her friends and other family have generally sided with the “Free Britney” movement, which lends it a lot of credence.
Variety reports that Spears racked up another win with the court accepting her petition to expand her legal team.
Britney, 38, is seeking to have Jamie removed from her conservatorship, which has been in effect for 12 years. She was not present for the latest hearing, although though her mother, Lynne Spears, Jamie and her attorney, Samuel Ingham were.
Jamie had opposed Britney’s petition, citing the cost of adding more lawyers.
Jamie Spears gets paid over $10k a month to be his daughter’s conservator, so if finances are a problem then maybe he could give that up. It seems weird that Jamie is in a position to oppose someone hiring more lawyers for a legal fight against him.
Personally, I think Britney should be able to do whatever she wants here. I don’t see why she needs to be in conservatorship and if it’s voluntary like she says, it can just be ended and she can hire someone trustworthy to manage her finances, she doesn’t need to be legally required to do so.

Twitter Wants Allison Janney to Play the Voter Named Paulette Who Just Called Donald Trump “So Handsome”If you thought you'd seen it all, think again. The 2020 presidential election has been filled with more viral moments than any of the past elections combined--and that's no...
Tori Roloff is pregnant with her third child!!!!
You've seen this headline, or some variation of it, all over the Internet of late, haven't you?
The Little People, Big World star likely recognizes she's reached a new level of fame now that various blogs and social media users are speculating on the state of her womb.
But is this speculation valid and/or accurate?
Are Tori and husband Zach really about to expand their brood, which currently consists of three-year old Jackson and 11-month old Lilah?
At last, Roloff is here to touch on the ongoing chatter.
“I’m not pregnant,” the 29-year old wrote Thursday, October 15 on her Instagram Story.
“The Internet is reaching today. Don’t believe all the garbage you read on the Internet. Must be a slow news day. Or I need to work out more," she added.
There doesn't seem to be very much behind all this talk that Tori is expecting -- except that some folks out there have taken a glance at some of her latest family photos and noted that her belly was behind either a child or a pumpkin.
Therefore, they jumped to the wild conclusion that Tori must be hiding a baby bump.
To be clear, Tori and Zach have both said they're open to a third child.
Just consider what the mother of two said a few weeks ago when the topic was broached.
“One day. Fo sho. God willing,” she replied during an Instagram Q&A after a fan asked if the couple would have “any more babies.”
Back in April, Tori and Zach also spoke to People Magazine about the current and future state of their family, dropping a similar hint at the time.
“Originally I was like, ‘Two kids is my max,’" Tori said in the an issue of the aforementioned magazine. "But I can definitely see us having more.”
This said, Tori has a pair of kids under four years old -- both of whom have dwarfism, which can be a cause for concern -- and isn't anxious to procreate any time too soon.
The Oregon native previously told Us Weekly she is “nervous” about conceiving again, explaining:
“I want to have the option to have four kids. I don’t ever want it to be really hard for me … so I think giving my body as much time to recover as possible could help that.”
Sounds totally fair and reasonable, doesn't it?
In April of last year, meanwhile, the TLC personalities said that their family was “on God’s timing.”
Zach chimed in on the subject during a Little People, Big World episode.
“Right now, we’re just kind of [like], if it happens, it happens. We have plans. We want a family. I would love four or five kids. I want a little pack," he said.
Tori, of course, gets the final say in the plan... considering she's the one who has to birth the impending babies.
And she's the one who must deal with the trolls.
"I am not responsible for teaching the world anything about dwarfism or a pandemic or any other global issue," Tori wrote to open a lengthy caption in July, adding:
"However, it is my privilege to have a platform where I can share information on things I find important like dwarfism or a pandemic or other global issues."
"I did not chose to be in the public eye," she continued in this message, which marked one of the few times she has ever lashed out.
"I fell in love and I chose my husband then and I choose him every day since. This all comes along with him and our family and I feel like I’ve done a damn good job of being the best I can be.
"I don’t owe you anything," Tori concluded, really handing it to her critics hard.
"You don’t own me. You can’t manipulate me. This is my instagram and I can choose what I want to share.
"If this doesn’t sit well with you... I’m sorry. It’s not my job to change your mind."
Halsey has just partnered up with Budweiser to create something called Be a King. It’s a short video put together sometime before the pandemic and has the singer narrating the story how of she became who she is today. The story shows us how Halsey used to be called Ashley and would sleep on the train because she was “homeless” up until the point where she “exploded”. We also get to see Halsey go back to where it all started, Halsey Street in Brooklyn, New York. To get fans excited about this new video, Halsey posted up some thirst trapping goodness in a bikini looking very flirty for the camera!

Jennifer Lopez has been working with a singer called Maluma who up until a few weeks ago I hadn’t heard of. They started working together last year when J.Lo joined Maluma onstage at Madison Square Garden when he was touring for to promote his album 11:11. A few weeks ago the pair starred in a three part music video series that was launched as a live Youtube event, you can see that here.
The pairs newest venture will have them playing spouses in a film set to release this Valentine’s Day called Marry Me. In the movie J.Lo is a super famous pop star who finds out her husband (Maluma) is cheating on her, so she marries super fan who stands outside her concerts holding a sign that reads “Marry Me” instead as an act of revenge. The super fan is played by your boy, Owen Wilson. Here is Maluma and J.Lo in a new photoshoot for Billboard Magazine.

Courtney Stodden Flaunts Boobs to Promote New Memoir, Might Be the Greatest Marketing Genius of Our Time
It's been a while since we checked in with Courtney Stodden.
Some things have changed (she's no longer a blonde!) while others, of course, have remained the same (she still enjoys posing in racy pics in various forms of undress, and for that, we thank her).
But in all seriousness, Courtney has been through a lot in her 26 years, and she no doubt has a lot to say about her life as a child bride and an overnight tabloid celebrity.
Which is why it's actually pretty exciting that Courtney has a memoir on the way.
Sure, celebrity autobiographies are a dime a dozen, but Courtney's experience in the spotlight is unique for a number of reasons.
Courtney married 50-year-old actor Doug Hutchison back in 2011, when she was just 16.
Though both parties now admit that their relationship was basically a sham from the start, it took until this year for Courtney and Doug to finalize their divorce.
So we guess something good came out of 2020 after all!
The final years of her marriage were not easy on Courtney, with the low point coming when she (allegedly) faked a miscarriage in order to drum up attention and sympathy.
According to Hutchison's memoir, he and Courtney assumed they would land a lucrative reality show deal soon after they married.
When they didn't, they became desperate, and the miscarriage hoax was their last desperate bid at relevancy.
It's a chapter in her life that Courtney has been hesitant to talk about, but she'll presumably address it in her memoir, along with a number of other difficult periods in her life, including her abusive childhood.
These days, Courtney is pulling a genius bait-and-switch routine with her Instagram followers, bringing them in with her famous curves and then delivering powerful messages about important issues.
Sometimes, Courtney is political, such as when she posted this nightmare-inducing image of herself in a Donald Trump mask.
Other times, her messages are more personal, such as when she opened up about her addiction to anti-anxiety medication.
"A week of detox and I’m finally down to .25 of Xanax. Half way there! Can’t wait to live life without having to take Xanax!" she wrote on Instagram.
"For all those suffering from addiction, never detox without the supervision of a psychiatrist! And never EVER feel embarrassed or weak about your recovery. This is why I’m choosing to live this one out loud - get help and be honest with yourself first and foremost."
We rarely hear from celebrities who are still battling to get clean, and there are millions of Americans who could benefit from Courtney's optimism.
If she's this much of an open book on social media, we can only imagine how candid her memoir will be.
We could be on the verge of a tell-all classic.
Sydney Sweeney has been working hard during this pandemic and she’s got the magazine covers to prove it! We just saw the HBO It Girl on the cover of Hunger Magazine where she made out with herself in the mirror on FaceTime. And here she is back on a the cover, this time for Numero Netherlands where she’s in full glam wearing more makeup than we’ve ever seen her in before and some fun clothing looks.
The actress recently announced that she is producing a series based on the book They Wish They Were Us and has cast Halsey to star alongside her in the show. The Players Table is currently in development and should come out sometime next year!

Selena Gomez is a season pusher and she’s holding on to the last warm nights of “summer” with this new selfie shot at golden hour. The singer is wearing the Caroline bikini top from the brand La’Mariette and does a pretty good job at selling the line for her friend Theresa Mingus who co-founded the brand. Selena went viral the last time she posed in a La’Mariette swimsuit when she famously showed off her kidney transplant scars!

The 2020 Billboard Music Awards happened last night at the Dolby Theatre in LA and was hosted by America’s Idol Kelly Clarkson for the third year in a row. The show was postponed due to the pandemic so what should have happened back in April finally happened yesterday.
TikTok was the main sponsor of this years awards and held voting through the platform from October 1 to October 13 when the presenters were announced. Addison Rae, Jane Lynch and Nicole Richie were some of the presenters for awards and many about 15 acts performed at the event including Alicia Keys, Sia and Garth Brooks who also took home the 2020 Icon Award.
Demi Lovato performed her song Commander in Chief while playing the piano against the word VOTE, the whole voting thing was a big theme at the BBMAS with Lizzo showing up in a dress printed with the word. Speaking of Lizzo, the singer had a message to her fans:
2020’s viral sensation Doja Cat also performed her TikTok hits Juicy, Say So and Like That, while dressed in a short red wig and a sequin bodysuit. I guess the BBMAS didn’t get the memo about Twitter cancelling her a few months ago and aren’t we glad to see it!

Britney Spears, or whoever is running her social media account, posted a new photo of the star getting a lift on her boyfriend Sam Asghari’s shoulders at the beach. The photo is super cute until you see the shadow of her handler taking the photograph, then it kinda feels creepy.
The whole #FreeBritney thing is still going on and skeptical fans have started commenting on the photo saying that it’s not even Brit. Some fans pointed out that her face isn’t even in the shot and basically that she’s still being held captive somewhere in a basement. After doing research by watching all of Britney’s self shot dance videos, we have determined that the legs in the photo are proof that this truly is our girl Britney, bitch.
