James Bond is 007. This is pretty much something that is never going to change. As long as there are James Bond movies he’ll be 007 and as long as they’re making 007 movies it will be James Bond.
Lashana Lynch did an interview with Harper’s Bazaar where she doubled down on the narrative that her character, Nomi, is 007 in No Time to Die. look, I was born at night but I wasn’t born last night, you’re not going to pull this over on me here. James Bond is always going to be 007, Thor is always going to be Thor and Bruce Wayne is always going to be Batman.
The Harper’s piece mentions over and over again that Lynch’s character is 007, but anyone with a brain has put together the main thrust of the plot already: James Bond retired and Nomi is the new 007, but Bond will be out of retirement and back to being 007 by the end of the movie. It’s really just that simple.
Interestingly, it doesn’t seem to be Lynch herself who is selling the narrative being pushed here, instead she’s just talking thoughtfully about bringing life to her character.
“A character that is too slick, a cast-iron figure? That’s completely against what I stand for,” says Lynch. ‘I didn’t want to waste an opportunity when it came to what Nomi might represent. I searched for at least one moment in the script where Black audience members would nod their heads, tutting at the reality but glad to see their real life represented. In every project I am part of, no matter the budget or genre, the Black experience that I’m presenting needs to be 100 per cent authentic.”

Kanye West really thought he was going to be the next President of the United States. I was positive that his whole run for office was just an excuse for new branded Kanye West merchandise but he actually thought that he was going to be President. I mean, I guess if Donald Trump can do it for four years anyone can. Literally anyone. Seriously, just grab someone off the street, are they going to do worse? But I digress.
Kanye was scheduled to be on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night but backed out, apparently because he lost the election. Here’s what Kimmel said about it via USA Today.
“The day after the election, we’ll be joined in studio by maybe the next president of the United States, Kanye West,” Kimmel said during Monday’s episode. “Oh, he canceled?… Kanye West canceled moments ago, so he won’t be here. But I’ll be here.”
Kimmel quipped, “We’ll try to get one of the other presidents to come in.”
I love this story so much I want to put it my stand mixer, whip it until it comes to soft peaks and serve it on a homemade apple pie.
You really have to step back and consider what Kanye’s cancellation really means here. A normal person would go on, tell a few jokes and advertise that he had some new merch coming soon having booked the appearance knowing he wasn’t going to win, but Kanye actually thought he was going to go on Jimmy Kimmel and celebrate being the President-Elect.
I long to be as detached from reality as Kanye West. The man threw together a campaign at the last minute, was only on the ballot in a handful of states because of this and at his only campaign rally he broke down crying and told everyone he and his wife almost aborted their oldest child. Still, he really, honestly thought that because he was Kanye West, all he had to do was say he wanted to be President and it would magically manifest itself for him because that’s basically how everything else in Kanye West’s life has worked.
I cannot stress the extent to which I cannot stop laughing at this information.

Brian Austin Green probably didn’t think that posting a picture of himself with his son Journey was going to be the impetus for all of his exes to join forces and tell the whole world they still think he’s an asshole, but, well, here we are.
I still don’t understand why taking a Halloween picture with your kid is a reason for everyone to come at you with knives out, but Megan Fox, Vanessa Marcil and Courtney Stodden sure thought it was.
Green seemed to take it in stride, responding to all the drama by posting a video of himself collecting eggs from a chicken coup while his kids are at school.
Here’s what he said about the incident, via Fox News.
“I think there’s some eggs here in my chicken coop so I figured I would show you these because this is what I do…Living the dream,” he began.
“I just wanted to thank everyone who’s come on my page and been supportive of everything. It’s extremely kind and really appreciated,” he continued.
I don’t quite understand where Megan Fox gets the idea that Green posting pictures of himself with the kids is some sort of attempt to undermine her and make her look like a bad mother, but I’m glad Green is letting it get him down.
I also don’t know why so many celebrities have backyard chicken coops. Are they even zoned for chickens in Calabasas? That’s a nice neighborhood, you don’t want to see chickens running around.

With all of America the nation anxiously awaiting the results of the Presidential election on Thursday night, Bachelor Nation didn't need to wait very long to learn of a very different kind of result.
Yes, that really was an engagement ring spotted this week on Clare Crawley's finger.
Because, yes, she's engaged to Dale Moss!
Approaching on this special installment by Chris Harrison and series producers over her clear affection for Moss -- and no one else -- Crawley came as clean as can be on air.
"I am so far in love with Dale," she said.
"We have this connection where it feels like I've known him forever. It's that intangible chemistry that you just can't make up and you can't replace.
"It's something that is so rare to feel so connected to someone when you've only known them for such a short period of time."
After an emotional chat with Harrrisoon, during which Clare swore on her "dad's grave" that she and Moss had no contact prior to filming, the host and the star decided that Clare would call off the night's cocktail party and rose ceremony to focus on Dale.
And Dale only.
Cut to an intimate dinner, and Moss pouring his heart out to The Bachelorette.
And then some.
"When we met I felt love and like that's what I came here for," he said.
"I'm falling in love with you through this process.
I'm not afraid to say that at all. My heart is open and I'm not gonna fight that. I've been dying to share this with you.
"It's right here, right in front of our face. It is what it is."
In a bit of celebratory corporate synergy, The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart winners Bri Stauss and and Chris Watson then serenaded the happy couple.
And that was that for them?
We then saw Clare and Dale cuddling in bed the following morning, only for Harrison to tell Clare that Dale was set to propose that night (!!!!!), but first she had to tell the other suitors what the eff was going on.
"I just have so much respect for you guys that I would never want to lead any of you on," she explained to a room full of angry and sad suitors.
Kenny, for example, demanded an apology from Clare for "faking it."
He didn't get one and most of the men wished Crawley well on her life with Moss, setting the stage for the earliest proposal in series history.
No The Bachelorette spoilers we read prepared us for it, that's for sure!
"From the moment I stepped out of the limo, this was special,” Dale told Clare.
“I know without the shadow of a doubt that you would go to the end of the world for me and I’ve never had that. I’m so grateful for that...
'I’ve thought a lot about my mother and what she would think about you.
"She would absolutely love you. All she’s ever wanted for me is someone who loves me unconditionally and who would be there for me no matter what.
"I know that I have that. And I love you."
Dale wasn't done, either.
"I want to make you happy each and every day so with that being said, Clare will you marry me?" he asked, before she responded with a resounding: "Yes!"
"Put that ring on my finger, I’ve waited a lot of years for this,” she added.
And when Moss obliged? Crawley then called herself “Clare Moss."
In the weeks leading up to her exit, Clare repeatedly shared just how happy she was ... without revealing she was engaged.
"I am in love with life right now," she told Good Morning America in October. "Things are really good. It's good not being in quarantine. I'll tell you that."
"Everybody keeps asking me, ‘Are you happy? Are you happy?' And I keep telling everybody, like, I was happy going into this. So, whatever came about it, I'm happy now.
"Things are well on my end."
So there you have it.
Clare's journey is over, Dale is outta there, too, of course, and now The Bachelorette belongs to Tayshia Adams, who walked through the door just as this episode faded to black.
Let's hope adams ends up as happy as Clare when her run is over.
Anna Duggar would like a word or two with The Man Upstairs.
The mother of six, who has likely asked God on numerous occasions why He stuck her with a man such as Josh Duggar, shared just one emoji on Twitter yesterday.
But it has set off quite a few reactions across social media.
On Wednesday evening, amid a great deal of chaos and confusion in regard to the ongoing Presidential election, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany offered up an idea online.
"Who would want to join a LIVE prayer group tomorrow?" she asked.
We can only assume McEnany asked this question because she wanted to get a contingent of voters together to see if they could push her boss through the finish line.
She wanted to harness the power of prayer to assist Donald Trump -- and Anna was down with the idea.
As you can see above, the 32-year old retweeted the post and simply added an emoji of a woman raising her hand.
Why would God be pulling for an alleged sex offender who has cheated on his wife and who dislikes minorities? That's a good question.
But it's not even the one most critics are focusing on in response to Duggar's retweet.
They're more curious why Anna Duggar would support Donald Trump.
Operating under the assumption that Anna voted for President Trump to be re-elected instead of Democratic candidate Joe Biden, one person wrote:
"For Joe Biden yes. Our new president. Thank God he’s our new president.
"This country can’t take another 4 years of tRump. Cmon Anna. Wake up."
Another person added: "Are you going to be praying for Trumps salvation? Or for him to win?"
Then there was this plea for Duggar:
"Please address how you determined that Trump was the lesser of two evils being 'prolife' when it is common knowledge that the treatment he received for corona virus was created and tested using cells known to come from an aborted fetus (yes aborted in 1970’s but aborted nonetheless."
Yes, this person got deep and did her research.
She actually appealed to Anna's anti-abortion values.
We don't know for sure that Anna cast her ballot for Trump, of course. It's just a VERY safe assumption.
She previously encouraged voting as she posted a selfie with Josh on Tuesday, snapped after they went to the polls, which she captioned:
"Better late than never! If you haven’t voted yet…
"Vote NOW while the polls are still open! littleduggars #vote #electionday #2020 #2020vision."
It's been quite a few days in the political realm for members of this family.
Jed Duggar lost in his bid for a seat in the Arkansas State House.
Jill Duggar, meanwhile, also told people to get out and vote -- while kind of implying she went for Biden.
Again, we can't say for certain, though.
We do know, however, that Jim Bob Duggar told cops in 2002 that his son, Josh, had fondled the breasts and genitals of several young women while they were asleep in the Duggar family home.
Two of these victims were Josh's sisters.
Later, Josh confessed to these heinous actions and also to cheating many times on Anna.
He's an awful human being, which, we suppose, may explain why Anna is also drawn to Donald Trump. The poor woman.
I recently realized I’m a big Fanning Sisters fan and I don’t know really when that happened, it might have something to do with the time they did that wine challenge, or Elle Fanning’s recent belfie. I’ve also been watching Dakota in The Alienist lately, so I was super stoked to older sister Dakota on the cover of Heroine magazine this month.
Dakota was interviewed by Kate Hudson and the pair talk about the new production company she and sister Elle set up during quarantine. You can pre-order the magazine here or check out the images below!

Halloween already feels like it happened 3 months ago but before we get through all of the sexy costume goodness let’s check in on a little friendly costume competition.
Uma Thurman’s Poison Ivy character from the 1997 Batman & Robin movie has always been a pretty popular costume over the years and one we love to see. Halsey went with the look for Halloween 2018 and shared a throwback of her costume in celebration of this years spooky season.
This year two celebrities decided to go the Ivy route, Bella Hadid set up a whole photoshoot that looks identical to the promo shots from the actual movie so she’s got my vote. But Bebe Rexha also did a pretty good job at the costume although the outfit just isn’t there for me. Judge for yourself below!

Vanessa Hudgens recently wrapped filming her new movie Tick, Tick…Boom in New York City which meant she was away from her BFF, GG Magree. Up until this weekend when GG flew her ass from LA to spend time celebrating with Vanessa. The pair rode citi bikes through the streets, Vanessa went raw dog on those handlebars and didn’t wear gloves but we’ll assume she washed her hands before they sat down for an Oyster lunch.
To commemorate the trip Vanessa and GG went over to the famous bangbang tattoo parlour and had work done by Mr. K. Vanessa’s new tattoo is written across her shoulder and reads “Cages on Wings” while GG went with PSYCHO on her hand with a spider web above it. It’s fun to see these two twinning together again, leaving their bras back in LA.

Bella Thorne has officially left the country and made her way over to Italy where she is working on an upcoming movie with her real life boyfriend, an Italian guy named Ben. Before she jumped on her flight overseas, the star filmed a video for her TiKTok channel by way of a classic prank.
Do we think this is a genuine prank Bella pulled off or was this entirely staged? I guess it doesn’t really matter if the prank was real, what matters is the outfit Bella is wearing, all white like a virgin, but we all know that’s not true thanks to her porn directing past and current selling of nudes!
The movie that Bella and her boo are working on is called Time is Up and will have her playing the role of Vivien who is an accomplished physics student that meets a guy named Roy (her BF) who is the complete opposite personality to her. Somewhere in there they end up getting involved in an accident that changes their lives.
The filming will take place in Rome, Italy and back in the USA which means these real life love birds get to spend a lot more time together thanks to the quarantine travel restriction loophole!
Bella captured the first few days on set with her boyfriend, whom she refers to in the video as “daddy” and seems super stoked to be working with him:

On Election Day, news broke that Erika Jayne had filed to divorce Tom Girardi, news that she confirmed.
After 21 years, it's over. But now rumors whisper that they were both cheating.
Cheating has ended many marriages -- even some that have lasted as long as Erika's and Tom's.
Erika and Tom married in 1999 despite their hefty age gap.
Just last season, Erika reminded her castmates that she knows what she's talking about when it comes to marriage, and cited her decades-spanning union as proof.
When Erika spoke about her filing for divorce, she emphasized that she has "great love and respect' for Tom.
But now, Real Housewives bloggers are circulating cheating rumors about that breakup.
Could it be that there was more holding these two apart than their 32-year age gap?
Deux Moi shared a series of posts on Instagram, which were then re-shared by Bravo Snark Side.
The first claim made in these posts is that a friend in Hancock Park (Los Angeles) is renting out their home to Erika.
Allegedly, Erika told the owner that she wouldn't be sleeping there, but needed a "home base" to be close to the other castmates while filming.
In a series of posts from Deux Moi, which were re-shared by Bravo Snark Side on their Instagram Stories, a number of claims were made against both parties after a source suggested that Erika may have been living separately from Thomas for some time prior to the divorce news. “Someone I know told me a few weeks ago that their friend is renting out their home in Hancock Park in L.A. to Erika Jayne. [She] told the house owner she wouldn’t be sleeping there and it would be a home base for her to be close to the other ladies for filming. Now … I don’t believe that reason for the rental!” the source shared.
While that sounds like an extremely normal motive for a Real Housewife to rent a house .. there are now doubts.
In light of these other rumors and the divorce news, people wonder if Erika was simply getting some space to herself.
Or, perhaps, using the house as a "love nest."
Another story, citing way fewer details, claims that Erika has been boning some other dude "for years."
The man isn't named ... but he is allegedly someone well known by fans of the franchise.
We hope that we do not have to explain to anyone why this rumor is likely not about Andy Cohen.
“Tom is a member of my private club in LA and [two New Years Eves] ago he brought a random woman to the party," begins another post.
"Didn’t see any PDA," the post notes, "but felt weird. Figured they just have an arrangement."
"Have I not been telling you about Tom’s 60-year-old blonde girlfriend!!!” Deux Moi editorialized.
This is far from the first time that it has been claimed that Tom has been unfaithful.
We noted that Erika and Tom have lasted for 21 years despite busy careers, a hefty age gap, the burdens of fame, the temptations of money, and more.
It may be that a quietly open marriage was part of the key of their success -- it would explain the rumors. Or all of this could just be a lot of hot air and assumptions.
Model Irina Shayk has been working with the Jean Paul Gaultier fashion house for some time now and has been made the face of their fragrance line. You may have seen some of her Scandal commercials on the TV over the past few months but the model got back to work with her JPG team to create this new, very fun campaign for the new fragrance. You can see Irina sitting at a table with fellow models including Jazelle (UglyWorldWide) as they are served lobster off a male models ass. It certainly is scandalous!

Rainey Qualley is having pretty good year, she dropped two new songs under her musical name Rainsford called 2 Cents and Crying in the Mirror and graced us with a giant version of herself in her newest music video for her song Oh my God which had her roaming the skies in a bright pink bikini and some crazy face paint. The singer will also be getting back into acting with a new romantic comedy series coming out called Love in the Time of Corona, where she will play Elle in a story about searching for love and connection during quarantine.

Tayshia Adams is about to take over as The Bachelorette.
No, this isn't a spoiler.
We've known about this switcheroo for months, ever since it leaked out that Clare Crawley had fallen so hard for one of her suitors that she agreed to leave the show several weeks before the finale.
We also now know this development will officially go down on Thursday, November 5.
ABC isn't even trying to hide it any longer; one of its top entertainment executives has explained in detail just why Crawley had to go.
So that's it for Clare. We wish her the best of luck, we think maybe she has gotten a raw deal and we're not sure why the network seemingly had it out for her from the start.
But Crawley's story is over.
The story of Tayshia Adams, however, is only just about to begin.
Having been isolated on The Bachelorette set in California for many weeks now, Adams has said nothing at all to the public about her stint as the franchise lead.
But we don't need to hear from Adams herself to reveal the biggest spoiler of them all.
That's what Reality Steve is for!
According to this series expert, Brendan Morais becomes a front-runner for Tayshia's heart.
HOWEVER, writes Reality Steve:
Brendan leaves the show on his own. His family was the only one that didn’t show up for hometown dates.
As I reported a few weeks ago, Brendan’s divorce was finalized just over a year ago, and apparently that played a big role in why he left. Guess he just wasn’t ready to jump into another relationship.
We previously reported that Brendan -- along with Ivan, Zac C. and Ben Smith -- advanced to Adams' final four.
It's unclear whether Morais ends up in third place or fourth place, but this much has been confirmed: Ben and Zac C. are Tayshia's final two contestants.
As for which takes home the final rose?
And as for whether or not this individual is currently planning his marriage to Adams?
Cue the drumroll, prepare yourself and scroll down.
Because the answer is...
... ZAC C!
He is not, however, engaged to Adams, Reality Steve alleges, partly because she was the most smitten with Brendan.
Once Brendan left the show, Tayshia was rather "distraught," but she went with Zac because he had been so open with her about his strong feelings.
What do we know about this lucky fella?
"Zac C. is all about taking advantage of every day because tomorrow is never promised," reads his official Bachelorette biography.
"After putting his party days behind him and becoming sober himself, Zac C. started a recovery program focused on helping reintegrate people back into the world after rehab, which has become his life's purpose.
"Zac C. has never been in a better place, and now, he wants to continue building his amazing life."
Wow, huh? Strong selection, Tayshia!
Continues the bio:
Zac C. says he is a sucker for good style and loves a woman with curves.
Toughness and confidence are incredibly sexy to him, and finding a woman whose entire life isn't wrapped up in their relationship is key.
He loves Philadelphia sports and dreams of sharing a Philly Cheesesteak with his future wife while watching the Eagles win a Super Bowl.
Above all, Zac C. knows that life is short and he plans to make the most of it, no matter what obstacles are thrown his way.
We're not done, either.
ABC also lists the following about Tayshia's alleged potential husband:
- He is a proud sneakerhead.
- He prefers to keep it old school and gets his news from reading the morning paper.
- His dream is travel to Italy and eat his way through the country.
- He loves desserts, but if there is fruit on the plate, he's not eating it.
Will Zac and Tayshia live happily ever after?
Not even Steve can say that for sure. But he sounds like an outstanding catch!
