Game of Thrones Season 7 Finale Photos: Where’s Daenerys?!

We've known for quite some time that the final two seasons of Game of Thrones would be truncated affairs, but still, we can't help feeling that the show's seventh season finale is upon us far too soon.

Fewer episodes has meant a faster pace, which - though fun in some cases - has resulted in some pretty glaring inconsistencies in others.

(Based on travel times, Westeros is now apparently the size of Providence, Rhode Island.)

Fortunately, the show is in a position to deliver its most explosive season finale to date, which should help placate fans who are feeling slighted.

Check out the first photos from "The Wolf and the Dragon" below, and watch Game of Thrones online at TV Fanatic to get caught up in time for Sunday night's installment.

1. Tyrion and Jon Look Concerned

Tyrion and jon look concerned
Tyrion Lannister and Jon Snow look worried. Maybe, like everyone else, they're wondering why the hell the Khaleesi isn't in any of this week's promotional photos.

2. Sansa Looks Pissed

Sansa looks pissed
Which has pretty much been her default state all season. Living with a sister who might want you dead can have that effect.

3. Littlefinger Looks Smug

Littlefinger looks smug
He's probably the reason Sansa looks so pissed. The man has many talents, and irritating the hell out of everyone is certainly one of them.

4. Bran Sees Things

Bran sees things
We're kind of surprised Team Stark has put Bran to better use this season. Seems like an all-knowing oracle would be a good thing to have around.

5. Cersei Is Pregnant

Cersei is pregnant
And yes, she'll continue to use that fact to her strategic advantage. She didn't get to a spot on the Iron Throne by being soft.

6. Theon is Somehow Still Alive

Theon is somehow still alive
If you can call that living. Anyone else involuntarily shudder whenever this poor bastard's onscreen?

Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 5 Photos: The Aftermath

If you're like us, you're still catching your breath from the fire and fury that concluded last week's episode of Game of Thrones.

It'll be tough (some might say impossible) to match "The Spoils of War" in terms of white knuckle action or edge-of-your-seat suspense, but with just nine episodes remaining, you can be certain the show won't be wasting a single scene.

Check out the photos below for a preview of this week's installment, entitled "Eastwatch."

And as always, you can watch Game of Thrones online in order to get caught up on the War of the Five Kings.

1. Jon and Daenerys Brood

Jon and daenerys brood
You might think these two would be in a celebratory mood after laying waste to a Lannister-led army. But no, brooding is their game ... and they're good at it.

2. Cersei Plots Revenge

Cersei plots revenge
We're guessing Cersei is less than thrilled by the news that her troops got torched by a dragon. Unfortunately for Daenerys, this is a woman who lives for vengeance.

3. Varys Contemplates

Varys contemplates
Varys considers his next move. He better make it a good one; getting fired by Daenerys would likely mean a fatal separation of his head and neck.

4. Tyrion and Varys and Wine

Tyrion and varys and wine
Tyrion and Varys get down to brass tacks. These two have all the job security of Trump staffers these days.

5. Sam and Gilly and Books

Sam and gilly and books
Looks like we'll be checking in on Sam at the Citadel again. Here's hoping we're not in for any more revolting dermatological procedures or poop montages.

6. Tyrion and Daenerys Look Concerned

Tyrion and daenerys look concerned
Tyrion and Daenerys seem troubled. We're guessing they're anticipating some backlash following last week's surprise attack.

Jeffrey Lord Posts Nazi Salute on Twitter, Gets Fired by CNN

It took Jeffrey Lord outing himself as a possible Nazi sympathizer for him to finally be fired by CNN.

The contributor, who was hired by the cable network to defend Donald Trump at all times and through all tribulations, was let go by the company on Thursday after he Tweeted the Nazi salute "Sieg Heil!"

Jeffrey Lord

Despite protestations that he did so in order to make fun of fascism, Lord is now out of a job.

“Nazi salutes are indefensible,” a CNN spokesperson said simply. “Jeffrey Lord is no longer with the network.”

The back-and-forth that landed Lord in hot water took place between him and Angelo Carusone, the president of Media Matters for America, a liberal media watchdog organization.

It has been supporting an advertising boycott of Sean Hannity's program on Fox News, which prompted Lord to pen a column in the American Spectator Thursday scolding the group as “anti-free speech bigots who, in typical fascist style, make it their mission to shut down speech they don’t like.”

He had previously this week compared MMFA to the propaganda machines in Hitler’s Germany and Mussolini’s Italy.

After Carusone replied to Lord and mentioned that name was misspelled in the headline of Lord’s piece... Lord responded, “Sieg Heil!”

Seems like a bit of an overreaction, no?

jl tweet

In a multitude of follow-up message, Lord argued that invoking the Nazi salute was a way of “mocking” Carusone and the organization.

Shockingly, this contention did not sway his bosses at CNN.

Following the controversial “Sieg Heil!” tweet, Carusone issued a statement on Twitter asking for Lord to be fired.

It read as follows:

Carusone tweet

To many CNN viewers and media critics, the only surprising development here is that it took so long for CNN to give Lord his walking papers.

The pro-Trump pundit has said many things over the past several months that many people thought would get him fired.

On Super Tuesday in 2016, he described the Ku Klux Klan as “the military arm, the terrorist arm of the Democratic Party, according to historians.”

In reference to Democratic congressman Bakari Sellers, an African-American, he once asked:

"When is Bakari going to get around to apologizing for slavery? I’m still waiting on that."

With a serious face, he said at one point:

"Think of President Trump as the Martin Luther King of health care."

Jeffrey Lord Picture

More recently, Lord brushed off Trump's encouragement of police brutality by saying that was simply a "New Yorker" having a "sense of humor" and he had gone on record by defending the President against talk of collusion with a foreign adversary.

"I don’t care what he says to the Russians," Lord says of Trump.

The only positive to the existence of Jeffrey Lord is that he got into an on-air tiff with Anderson Cooper a few months ago, which led to Cooper saying to the biased non-journalist:

“If he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it.”

We're almost glad CNN hired Jeffrey Lord just for that one exchange.

But he's a horrible human being.

Jeffrey Lord on CNN

UPDATE: Said Lord to Entertainment Weekly after he was let go:

“Caving to bullies, caving to people who use fascist and Nazi-style tactics to try and remove people from the air is unacceptable.

"I mocked this guy. Mocking Nazis is okay. That’s a good thing, not a bad thing. A writer has only a handful of tools in his writer’s box, and mockery is one of them.

"To suggest that this is anything other than that, to my way of thinking, is caving in. And I’m not going to cave...

"I have absolutely zero regrets for mocking people who use Nazi tactics and fascists tactics to silence people in the media. None.”

He blames Momma Perez for this!

Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 2 Photos: Jon Snow v Littlefinger!

Sure, the Game of Thrones Season 7 finale threw a lot of information at us, but some fans have complained that it failed to really scratch the itch they've been nursing for 13 months.

For many, there was too little of certain things (many complained that often felt like a "place-setting" episode and lacked emotion) and too much of others (producers probably should've cut the Ed Sheeran quotient by at least half).

We say it was a solid installment, but we can certainly see how it may have left some viewers wanting more.

The first official photos from the season's second episode don't tell us a whole lot about what to expect, but according to the GoT formula, episodes that set the stage are usually followed by ones that tear it all down.

Check out the pics below, and watch Game of Thrones online at TV Fanatic to get caught up:

 

 

1. Jon Snow and Littlefinger Converse

Jon snow and littlefinger converse
Probably not a friendly chat. We'd say they could be talking about the weather, but that's gonna be the same for like the next 40 years.

2. Arya on the Move

Arya on the move
Okay, she's been on the move since the end of GoT Season 1. But now, she's finally on the verge of the revenge and the reunion she's been waiting for.

3. Sansa in the Snow

Sansa in the snow
Sansa is looking contemplative. She's probably trying to figure out how to get Jon to stop being such a d-bag with his new power.

4. Jon and Littlefinger At It Again

Jon and littlefinger at it again
Apparently, these two spend a lot of the episode talking in darkened hallways. We'd complain prematurely, but it promises to be a hell of a contentious convo.

5. The Khaleesi and the Hand

The khaleesi and the hand
The Khalessi and her council have set up shop in Dragonstone. We sense a clash of queens in the near future.

6. Sam at the Citadel

Get ready, Hermione Granger fans! This season promises lots of Sam figuring out all kinds of fancy magic things with his book learnin'!

QUIZ: How Long Would YOU Survive Game Of Thrones?

With so many Game Of Thrones characters suffering brutal deaths, it's hard to imagine any of them will survive the dangers of Westeros!

Between the dragons, the White Walkers, and plenty of (literal) backstabbing, the HBO fantasy series has never been more perilous.

Some characters are better suited for survival than others -- whether they manage to stay alive with power, manipulation, seduction, or just hiding out until everything is over.

But how long would fans of the Emmy-winning series last if they actually lived in the cut-throat (again, literally) race to rule the Seven Kingdoms?

Well, by answering a few simple questions, you can find out -- whether it's getting decapitated right from the beginning or making it all the way to the Iron Throne!

Choose your weapons, skills, and allies wisely, and take our survival quiz (below) to get ready for Season 7 -- premiering on HBO tonight (July 16)!

Bachelor in Paradise Sets New Premiere Date, Makes Stunning Announcement

ABC has a couple of exciting announcements to make.

First, the network has confirmed that Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 will, indeed, air this summer, despite the multi-week scandal that delayed production at the start of filming.

As a result of the He Said/She Said/And Also a Producer Said between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson, new episodes of this reality series will kick off on August 14, immediately followed by a second new installment on August 15.

The show was originally scheduled to premiere on August 8.

It was pushed back, however, after Olympios and Jackson got very drunk... then got naked in a pool together... and then got into some seriously raunchy action.

Things got so hot and heavy and sexually heated that a producer thought Corinne may have been too drunk to give consent.

Once this possibility was raised, Warner Bros. shut down production and sent all contestants home.

Olympios stated publicly that she felt "victimized," while Jackson said his "character" was being "assassinated."

Corinne on ABC

In the end, an investigation determined no sexual assault of any kind took place and cast members were invited back down to Mexico to finish filming.

But no way would Corinne and DeMario be included among these cast members, right?

Mostly.

That's mostly right.

HOWEVER, Olympios said in a brief statement on Wednesday that she'll be appearing on one episode of Season 4 after all.

"I am very happy to be appearing on the Bachelor In Paradise Special," she said simply today.

Jackson, sources, confirm is on board for this same special.

In an interview with E! News shortly after his name was cleared, DeMario said he had no hard feelings toward Corinne.

He detailed their sexual encounter (in MAJOR detail) and wished Olympios the best on multiple occasions.

DeMario Jackson Promo Pic

It's unclear just when this special will air, but Season 4 itself will take place over six weeks this summer.

Those six weeks will feature past Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants attempting to find love for a second time in Mexico, while they also witness the wedding of Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 couple Carly Waddell and Evan Bass.

This ceremony was filmed on June 17.

Following the sex and alcohol scandal, producers said they would emphasize certain rules on Bachelor in Paradise going forward, including a two drink per hour maximum.

They also said bartenders would keep a much closer eye on who was drinking and how much they were drinking.

"I am also happy about the changes that have been made to the production of Bachelor In Paradise," Corinne said in a previous statement, adding:

"While I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to have been a participant on The Bachelor, and while I was invited to return to Bachelor In Paradise when production resumed, I respectfully made the decision not to return."

Corinne Olympios Mirror Selfie

What changed her mind?

Or did she always plan on making a cameo on Season 4?

We'll never know.

But with no misconduct determined to have taken place, perhaps Olympios wants a forum to tell her side of the story.

WILL YOU BE WATCHING BACHELOR IN PARADISE?

Eileen Davidson: I Quit The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!

Eileen Davidson is bidding farewell to the show that made her famous.

In a surprising decision that has taken the Internet by storm, the Bravo star announced her departure from The Real Housewife of Beverly Hills on Friday afternoon.

Eileen Davidson Snapshot

"After a lot of careful thought, I've decided because of my crazy schedules at 'The Young and The Restless,' as well as 'Days of Our Lives,' it's best for me and my family if I step away from being a 'Housewife' for now," Davidson said in a statement to TooFab.

She added of this unexpected choice:

"But you never know, I might be popping in from time to time just to see what the ladies are up to! Thanks for your love and support guys!!!"

Davidson debuted on the Bravo smash hit back in 2014.

She had been a regular cast member for three season.

To drive her point home, Davidson later went on Twitter and reiterated her stance, writing:

TRUE! Bcuz of my crazy sched @ yr & days I must step away from hw 4 now. But I might b popping in 2 see what the chix r up 2 Thx 4 the [love].

ED tweet

This announcement does at least solve a question that had been on the minds of those who watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online or on television each week.

After Camille Grammer Tweeted a photo of herself and other Real Housewives on Thursday night, many wondered why Davidson was not included.

We now have our answer, apparently.

The following snapshot features Grammer and Adrienne Maloof, alongside Lisa Vanderpump, Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards, Erika Girardi, Dorit Kemsley and an unknown blonde.

Some Housewives of Beverly Hills

Previously, Eden Sassoon confirmed that she would not return to the program, either.

Over the years, Davidson...

... was the victim of a vicious wine toss to the face from Brandi Glanville.

... Was on the receiving end of an epic "You beast" taunt from Kim Richards.

... And engaged in a years-long rivalry with Lisa Vanderpump over the latter prying into Eileen's dating history.

Bravo is yet to comment on this cast departure.

Eileen Davidson at Emmys

Filming on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 is underway, with Vanderpump, Rinna, Girardi and Dorit Kemsley all expected to play key roles.

The network has not yet announced a premiere date.

Will you miss Eileen Davidson? Was it time for her to go?

Will you still tune in this fall for new episodes?

Should anyone replace Davidson?

Sound off now!

Local NBC Affiliate In Connecticut Will NOT Air Megyn Kelly’s Interview With Alex Jones — GOOD!

Good for NBC's Connecticut affiliate here.

The local television station owned by NBC that covers the area including Newtown, Connecticut, will NOT be broadcasting Megyn Kelly's highly controversial interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

Related: Alex Jones Pre-Leaks His Interview With Megyn Kelly!

In an internal memo at the company that was obtained by the Associated Press on Friday, station executives at WVIT NBC Connecticut made the decision to not air the interview after hearing from employees, viewers, and families that were so horribly affected by the awful tragedy that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School there in 2012.

Jones has said repeatedly on the record that the killing of those 26 people -- including many small children -- was a hoax. Kelly has drawn a ton of criticism for even interviewing him, but now at least it seems one station has found a solution.

Good!

Related: Sandy Hook Moms Urging Megyn To Do The Right Thing

All in all, with Kelly's ratings in the toilet and this controversy rung squarely around her neck, it really hasn't been a great start to her career at NBC.

Of course, it pales in comparison to the pain Jones' conspiracy theories have brought to Sandy Hook families.

Hopefully more NBC affiliates across the country take the lead from this one and adjust their programming accordingly.

Bachelor in Paradise: Shut Down Due to Wild Sex Romp!

Forgive the extremely obvious introduction, but...

.... there's trouble in Paradise.

Shocking, hilarious, controversial, SEXUAL trouble, that is.

paradise shot

Over the weekend, Warner Bros. confirmed that production has been halted on the upcoming new season of ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise.

At the time of this announcement, very few details were available to the press, with a spokesperson for this production simply saying the following via statement:

"We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico.

"We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations.

"Once the investigation is complete, we will take appropriate responsive action.”

Allegations of misconduct? To the point where a reality show would actually shut down production?

The Internet was abuzz with questions over this mysterious development and description, considering how inappropriate so much of what we see on reality television is (case in point: everything about 90 Day Fiance).

What could possibly have happened that forced producers to send cast members home?

DeMario Jackson Image

According to TMZ, Corinne Olympios basically happened.

Insiders close to star DeMario Jackson (who was just given the boot from The Bachelorette by Rachel Lindsay) say that executives approached him and Olympus on the first day of shooting and suggested the two hook up.

They figured having the show's biggest villains get together would be a solid storyline.

So Jackson and Olympios met at a bar and got drunk.

DeMario explains that Olympios then wasted little time jumping on his lap and slipping him some tongue. A lot of “intense rubbing” followed, TMZ writes.

The contestants then made their way to the pool, cameras rolling and inhibitions long gone.

They got naked and started making out, "rubbing, touching and fingering,” this source alleges.

Jackson claims Corinne proceeded to place her genitals in his face and he started to lick her sacred area, only this is where a few others reportedly disagree with what transpired.

DeMario also admits he was not able to engage in intercourse because of all the alcohol he consumed.

Corinne Olympios' Boobs

Last Tuesday, despite Jackson and Olympios getting along perfectly well set, an executive producer called the pair into his office and said another producer was “uncomfortable” with the how the two had acted.

The producer went ahead and filed a formal complaint with Warner Bros., prompting the company to immediately suspended production and launch an investigation.

At first, only DeMario and Corrine were sent home.

Then, two days later Warner Bros. released the entire cast while they investigated alleged "misconduct."

An Instagram photo shared over the weekend features the cast, sans Jackson and Olympios, posing in the Houston airport:

bip cast pic

TMZ writes that they are alternative versions of Jackson's account.

We certainly cannot verify what led to this unusual halting of production, although we can say for certain that Olympos proved she wasn't shy during her run on The Bachelor.

She said at one point that her "vagina is platinum" and that she totally had sex on the show with Nick Viall.

Corinne Olympios Laughs

Corinne also spent about as much time without a shirt on during her Bachelor run as she did completely clothed.

The fourth season of Bachelor in Paradise had recently begun filming and was slated to premiere August 8 on ABC.

It's unclear whether this incident will affect the scheduled debut date.

The summer series reunites former castoffs of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette at a resort in Sayulita, Mexico, in hopes they find love with other stars of the franchise...

... and/or in hopes they do some wild and crazy stuff that garners strong ratings.

ABC announced the full cast of Bachelor in Paradise players last week.

Click through their identities above, refresh your memories over who they got turned down by and then react to this wild report:

Do you really think production was shut down because Corinne shoved her you-know-what in Jackson's face?!?

And can you believe producers actually tell contestants to hook up with each other?!?

(Oh, you can? So can we. Nevermind.)

James Corden Goes Full Brit As He Enlists Ed Sheeran For Carpool Karaoke, Performs Crosswalk Rendition Of Mary Poppins, & Shares Kind Words About London!

James Corden went full Brit for his latest installment of Carpool Karaoke!

This only makes sense as Ed Sheeran was his rider for Tuesday’s late night bit. Not to mention, this segment was featured in the kick-off episode of the CBS chat show’s three-day stint in the U.K. While James and Ed filmed the sing-along sesh in El Lay, the twosome got along swimmingly as they rocked out to many of the hitmaker’s chart toppers — including Shape Of You and Sing.

Related: Ice Cube Is More Than Ready To Face Off Against Bill Maher!

In fact, at one point, the carpoolers even remixed the ginger singer’s hit Castle on the Hill. Color us impressed!

Although, Corden’s quality time with Ed wasn’t the only super British moment The Late Late Show offered up as the 38-year-old made a special monologue about the city of London following the recent attack. Oh, and you DEFINITELY need to see the funny man’s crosswalk rendition of Mary Poppins.

So, be sure to ch-ch-check out the Carpool Karaoke bit (above), and the other notable HIGHlights (below)! Enjoy!

Jared Martin Dies; Former Dallas Star Was 75

Jared Martin, a veteran actor likely best known for his role as Steven “Dusty” Farlow on the beloved series Dallas, died on Wednesday night from pancreatic cancer.

He was 75 years old.

Jared Martin

Martin's son, Christian, has confirmed the sad news via Twitter and also to The Hollywood Reporter, telling the publication that his father passed away at home in Philadelphia.

Farlow was a rodeo cowboy who seduced main character on the aforementioned drama,

He actually perished in a plane crash... only to have producers resurrect his character by popular demand shortly afterward.

As for the actor himself?

Martin was born in Manhattan and attended Columbia University where he roomed future filmmaker Brian De Palma, who cast his pal in his 1968 film Murder à la Mod.

“I played a mad photographer-murderer who liked to lick the blood off his victims’ bodies,” Martin told People Magazine way back in 1981, adding:

“Brian used Hershey syrup for blood and paid me $35.”

Martin's impressive resume also included starring roles on two sci-fi TV shows: 1977's The Fantastic Journey at NBC and a 1988-1990 adaptation of War of the Worlds, which aired in syndication.

He signed on for just three episodes of Dallas Season 3 in 1979 as Dusty.

But he became such a fan favorite that producers had no choice but to keep him around for longer than initially planned.

"They brought Dusty Farlow on to make goo-goo eyes at Sue Ellen [Linda Gray], become moderately involved with her, tempt her and then she basically remembered who she was and went back to J.R. [Larry Hagman]," Martin said a few years ago in an interview for a Dallas fan site.

The character was killed off in a plane crash to conclude Martin's initial stint on the series.

However...

After J.R. Ewing was shot by an unseen assailant in what many consider to be the most buzzworthy season finale in TV history, viewer polls and Las Vegas oddsmakers made Dusty a favorite to be the answer to the question on literally everyone's minds:

"Who shot J.R.?"

For this reason, the series brought Dusty back from the dead.

"My agent said, 'Get ready, they are going to bring you back,'" Martin said in the past, explaining:

"I said, 'How? I'm dead.' My agent says, "Oh, this is Hollywood, they will think of something.'"

HA! That remains the case today, really.

J. Martin

Dusty would make an amazing recovery and even return to the rodeo circuit.

Upon his retirement from acting, Martin co-founded and served as the creative director for the non-profit Big Picture Alliance, which brought the world of filmmaking to inner-city kids.

He also spent his time as a painter and photographer after his acting days were over.

Martin is survived by Christian, wife Yu Wei, and grandchildren.

We send our condolences to the family members and loved ones of Jared Martin, as well as to those close to every celebrity who has passed away this year.

May they rest in peace.

Look! We FINALLY Found One Thing Donald Trump Has Accomplished During His Presidency!

Even though Donald Trump is fond of saying the first 100 days of his Presidency were the most productive in American history, we all know that's, uh, NOT true...

But the good news is we've finally uncovered something where The Donald is actually setting record marks! And it's a YUGE success!!

Related: Girls Who Code Founder SLAMS Ivanka Trump For Using Her Story!

George Mason University's Center for Media and Public Affairs just released a new study revealing that The Donald has had more late-night TV show monologue jokes made at his expensive in the first 100 days of his term than any other President has in their ENTIRE first year!

Probably not surprising... but at least it's record-setting!! Ha!!

According to the study, 1,060 punch lines were lobbed at The Donald during the first 100 days by late night show hosts.

Compare that to former presidents in the whole first year of their terms, and it's not even close: Barack Obama (936), George W. Bush (546), and Bill Clinton (440).

WOW!!!

As for specifics, Stephen Colbert has dropped the most Trump jokes, with 337 total. Trevor Noah is close behind with 315 more, and Jimmy Fallon (231) and Jimmy Kimmel (177) have put up respectable totals, too.

For what it's worth, too, the Trump family was also the butt of 97 more jokes -- which was more than all Democrat families COMBINED!

Congrats, Donald -- we finally found something that you're good at!!

The Center for Media and Public Affairs will keep a running tally through Trump's full term, and we can't wait to see where the final number lands!

Thoughts?! Share 'em in the comments (below)!!!

Caitlyn Jenner Tells All To Diane Sawyer AGAIN! WATCH HERE!

Caitlyn Jenner and Diane Sawyer have come together yet again to dig into the specifics about the retired Olympian's personal life.

Kris Jenner's ex famously first revealed she was transgender during a candid sit down with the celebrated journalist back in 2015. As it's been two years since this groundbreaking interview aired, Miz Jenner agreed to speak with Diane once again.

Related: Caitlyn Is 'Proud' Of Outed Transgender Survivor Contestant!

Not to mention, this interview just happens to coincide with the release of Caitlyn's new memoir, The Secrets of My Life. Of course, as Jenner's book has already garnered quite a bit of press for its MANY truth bombs, we knew this chat with Sawyer would be juicy AF.

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the HIGHlights from the hourlong 20/20 special for yourself (below)!

Caitlyn begins the interview by saying she is "happy" and "peaceful" now that she has come to terms with her gender identity.

As opposed to her life as "Bruce" where the Olympian "couldn't care less about the next day," Caitlyn is "excited" to get up every morning. She also reveals she has learned a lot about "compassion" since living life as a woman.

In regards to her now-famous Vanity Fair cover where she officially introduced Caitlyn to the world, the 67-year-old has absolutely no regrets about the provocative shoot, and doesn't mind the picture's "shock value."

The former I Am Cait star also confirms reports that she has become distant with some of her children, notably on the Kardashian side. She said:

"Some [of my children] I have remained very close to... A couple of them… I'm a little more distant. I have to admit, I'll sit here and wonder, ‘Is it because of my transitioning? Or is it because their life is so busy that they don't call, like, all the time?'... Nobody calls that much... I mostly reach out to them. Obviously the Jenner side calls more, but they all have their own lives."'

While four Jenner kids (not including Kendall and Kylie Jenner) appeared in the first interview two years ago, all six of them declined to appear in this special.

Instead, Burt Jenner, Cassandra Marino, Brandon Jenner, and Brody Jenner gave the following statement:

"We love our father and have deep admiration for her bravery in pursuit of becoming a more authentic version of herself. Every family is different with its own unique set of milestones, but we can honestly say that Caitlyn's gender transition has brought our family closer together and for that we are grateful."

Not surprisingly, the athlete and ex wife Kris do not keep in touch on a regular basis, but she says the two of them are amicable.

"Do I talk to… Kris all the time? No... She's kind of moved on. I have certainly moved on, and, but we're fine with each other."

Overall, the interview was revealing, honest, and full of scandalous sound bites... just the way Caitlyn likes it!

The Today Show Shake-Up: Who May Be Out?

It's not a fun time to be a morning show personality.

Over on ABC, reports indicate that Michael Strahan has created quite a bit of tension on set, with Lara Spencer especially unhappy over her reduced role now that the ex-NFL star is on board.

In the wake of this upheaval, chatter has turned to Good Morning America's rival at NBC.

Many are wondering: What might Megyn Kelly's arrival mean for Today Show staffers?

Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer on Set

To kick off 2017, Kelly said goodbye to Fox News and hello to her new broadcast home.

Ever since committing to the network, however, Kelly has been careful not to reveal very much about when viewers will see her debut and in what fashion.

According to most reliable sources, Kelly will be given a five-days-a-week program that airs some time in the morning each day.

As a result, one of the hours of The Today Show will very likely be axed.

In late January, Tamron Hall left the program out of anger that she and Al Roker are presumably getting bumped to make room for Kelly.

So there's already been a shake-up behind the scenes and in front of the camera... and insiders don't expect things to calm down any time soon, either. 

Megyn Kelly at Oscars Party

Kelly “wants to do a smart morning political show and wants to hire her own staff,” someone in the know tells Radar Online, explaining why this is a problem:

“But NBC [is] pushing for more of a daytime show with an audience like Phil Donahue under the Today umbrella and staff.”

Until these very important details get worked out, Kelly will reportedly begin her stint as an NBC employee by hosting a weekend show, prior to shifting to her regular weekday slot.

This doesn't sit well with the woman who just left the network that made her rich and famous in order to get a fresh start and a new opportunity at NBC.

"Megyn is pissed that she’s going to get a slow rollout starting with just a weekend show that no one care about," Radar writes.

Kelly, Megyn

At this point, no one associated with Today is very happy.

They don't know what the future will bring; whether Kelly will essentially take over completely or simply be dropped in amidst the staffers already in place.

“It is a mess and causing massive internal drama,” an insider tells Radar. “The staff at The Today show’s 9 and 10 am hour do not know if they should be looking for new jobs.”

Heck, even Kathie Lee and Hoda Kotb "have been kept in the dark about what is happening to their show and are livid," the source says.

You'd think executives would at least be making it a priority to ensure Kelly is happy, but that simply hasn't been the case, according to this article.

“She was promised firework and a huge advertising campaign around her debut,” the source says.

But now?

“It doesn’t even look like she will be getting a weekday show until the end of the year. They have managed to piss off everyone!”

Whatever Happened To Steve From Blue’s Clues? Well, He Is Writing Songs About Pooping Now

Who could ever forget Blue's Clues, one of the greatest children's interactive TV shows of all time?!

Steve Burns, who was Steve on the show for so many years before it ended its run a decade ago, is forever synonymous with the show, that unforgettable shirt, the damned blue dog... that show was a phenomenon, OK?? LOLz!!

But now, Mr. Burns has a brand new project, and he's teaming up with another Steve -- Steven Drozd of the Flaming Lips, as a matter of fact -- on a new set of children's music!!!

Related: So This Is The Reason Steve Left Blue's Clues...

That's right! If you grew up on Steve from Blue's Clues, and you were hoping your own kids could one day do the same, here's you chance!!!

Speaking in a new interview with TMZ, Burns explained a little bit more about his new project, which is called Steve-n-steveN and is basically right now just a YouTube channel with a few tunes.

But seriously, LOOK AT THESE TUNES (below) starting with the most recently released vid about facts:

Ha! Love it!!

How about this one about the last magical unicorn (below):

Cute!!!

And of course, the best and most memorable video was their first -- and the one that's gotten them the most attention -- about how to poop (below):

A music video about pooping, brought to you by the guy who was Steve in Blue's Clues.

OK!!!

What do U think of these vids, Perezcious readers?!

At least Steve's relative (lack of?) hair doesn't matter in this case, right? It's just kind of out there already... ha!!

Anyways, watch Burns' TMZ interview HERE.

And give the man a little credit -- not only are the songs pretty well done, as you can see in a separate project (below), he's an interesting and likable guy:

Keep singin' about poop, Steve!

Arnold Schwarzenegger Won’t Return to Celebrity Apprentice Due to You-Know-Who

Forgive the obvious opener, but...

... Arnold Schwarzenegger will NOT be back.

The actor-turned-Govenor-turned-reality-TV-host said hasta la vista, baby to Celebrity Apprentice on Friday, announcing that he will not return to the NBC series for a second season.

The star, of course, took over for Donald Trump as host for the latest installment of this franchise.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Close Up

And that was basically the entire problem Schwarzenegger explained via statement.

"I loved every second of working with NBC and Mark Burnett," the 69-year old said, adding:

"Everyone - from the celebrities to the crew to the marketing department - was a straight 10, and I would absolutely work with all of them again on a show that doesn't have this baggage."

Ah, yes. This baggage.

Schwarzenegger is referring to the fact that Donald Trump stayed on as Executive Producer of Celebrity Apprentice, despite being elected President of the United States in November.

This cast a controversial shadow over the program before it even premiered in January.

"With Trump being involved in the show, people have a bad taste and don’t want to participate as a spectator or as a sponsor or in any other way support the show," Arnold continued.

"It’s a very divisive period now, and I think this show got caught up in all that division."

Arnold

It didn't exactly help that Trump actively trash-talked his predecessor over the show's dwindling ratings.

“Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got ‘swamped’ (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT,” Trump Tweeted on Friday, January 6.

He added at the time:

"So much for being a movie star-and that was season 1 compared to season 14. Now compare him to my season 1. But who cares, he supported [John] Kasich & Hillary [Clinton]."

Schwarzenegger responded by slamming Trump as a "skunk," and later tweeted to the commander in chief himself:

"I wish you the best of luck and I hope you'll work for ALL of the American people as aggressively as you worked for your ratings."

Arnold Schwarzenegger with a Cigar

Celebrity Apprentice did struggle in the ratings this season, but it also decreased over the course of Trump's run.

NBC has yet to pick up the show for another run, following Matt Iseman emerging victorious in the season finale that aired last month.

In another Tweet, Schwarzenegger addressed Trump as follows:

"Please study this quote from [Abraham] Lincoln’s inaugural, @realDonald Trump. It inspired me every day I was Governor, and I hope it inspires you."

Schwarzenegger then went ahead and read the quote in a video. This is what it said:

We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection.

The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.

Did you choose a side in this Trump vs. Schwarzenegger feud?

Or will you be happy when both just go away?

Moonlight & La La Land’s Casts & Crews React To That INSANE Oscars Mix-Up!

Wow, our jaws are still on the floor following that very embarrassing Oscars mix-up for Best Picture!

After La La Land was mistakenly called instead of Moonlight for winning the biggest award of the night, the casts from both films have taken a moment to react to the unprecedented snafu.

The newly minted Best Supporting Actor winner Mahershala Ali says that he wasn't surprised at all when Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone's film received the accolade:

"La La Land has done so well and it's resonated with so many people, especially in this time when people need a sense of buoyancy in their life. That film has really impacted people in a very different way than Moonlight, so when their name was read, I wasn't surprised -- I was really happy for them. It's a group of really extraordinary people."

Related: Chrissy Teigen Passed The Fuck Out During Casey Affleck's Acceptance Speech

He went on:

"When I did see security or people coming out on stage and their moment was being disrupted in some way, I got really worried. And then when they said Moonlight wins, it just threw me a bit. It threw me more than a bit! I just didn't want to go up there and take something from somebody. It's very hard to feel joy in a moment like that, but I feel very fortunate for all of us to have walked away with the Best Picture award. It's pretty remarkable."

Ugh, we hate this amazing cast and crew didn't get their big moment!

Moonlight director Barry Jenkins added he doesn't have any hard feelings about what went down:

"No explanation. Things just happen. I will say, I saw two cards, and so things just happen. I wanted to see the card, to see the card, and Warren refused to show the card to anybody before he showed it to me. And so he did. He came upstairs and he walked over to me, and he showed the card. Everyone was asking, ‘Can I see the card?' And he was like, ‘No, Barry Jenkins has to see the card, I need him to know.' And I felt better about what had happened."

The award-winning filmmaker described the emotions he was experiencing during that tense moment:

"I think all the movies that were nominated were worthy, so I accepted the results, I applauded like everyone else. I noticed the commotion that was happening, and I thought something strange had occurred. I'm sure everybody saw my face, but I was speechless with the result. I had always watched the Academy Awards and I had never seen that happen before. It made a very special feeling even more special, but not in a way I expected. I will say, the folks from La La Land were so gracious. I can't imagine being in their position and having to do that. We spent a lot of time together over the last six months, and I can't imagine being in their position. It's why I was speechless — I wasn't speechless because I won, I was so speechless that they had to do that."

Very, very true!!

Best Supporting Actress nominee Naomie Harris thought the whole thing was a prank!

Related: Oscars 2017 -- All The Red Carpet Pics!

She told People at the Governor's Ball after the ceremony:

"It is really surreal. I went up on stage with this weird expression on my face like, ‘What is happening?' I don't know what I'm going to look like onscreen. I started shaking. I thought, 'Is this a prank or something?' There were so many great moments in the show that were comedic moments — like is this another one? What's happening? And then I was just like, 'Oh god, we've got to process.' [It was a] very awkward moment, but it turned out alright, and we are very happy."

The 40-year-old finished:

"It's a shame it happened like that in a way, because it was such a beautiful moment. What is important is that we won and it's a huge honor and we are totally and utterly thrilled. And we are going to celebrate big-time tonight."

On the other side, there's no doubt the La La Land gang was -- though gracious -- completely stunned by the flub.

While speaking to reporters in the press room, the winner for Best Actress reacted:

One of the highly-credited film's producers Fred Berger came out of the Dolby Theater and reportedly said to someone:

"Well, at least I got to give my speech."

To which Ryan Gosling responded:

"You gave a great speech, man."

Can everyone win?!?!

Congratulations to both movies for an amazing night!

Brenda Buttner Dies; Fox News Host Was 55

Brenda Buttner, a senior business correspondent and the host of Bulls & Bears on Fox News, died of cancer on Monday.

She was 55 years old.

With a heavy heart, Fox News colleague Neil Cavuto passed along this sad news to viewers a couple hours ago, via an emotional tribute  to Buttner on his show.

“Brenda was among the very first to put a kind female face to this once-staid old male batch of the business,” Cavuto said, adding:

“She took stock of life more than stock in life.”

A financial reporter, Buttner graduated from Harvard University in 1983 and spent two years as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, where she graduated with high honors in politics and economics.

She kicked off her professional career at an NBC affiliate in Reno, Nevada, prior to hosting CNBC’s The Money Club and serving as a a contributor to that network from 1990 to 1998.

The New Jersey resident joined Fox News in 2000 and served as a senior business correspondent there ever since.

“In her sickest moments, battling an unrelenting cancer, there was Brenda, cheering you on,” Cavuto added on air.

“Business journalism is never going to be the same. I just don’t know, now that she’s gone, whether we’ll ever be.”

Others who knew Buttner well also paid tribute to her on social media.

“She loved rainy days, cloudy places, motorcycles and her children most of all,” wrote ex-Fox News commentator Tobin Smith on Facebook.

“I told her that I would spread a few of her ashes in her beloved Edinborough outside her favorite pub…she loved that idea.

“She called me her ‘office husband’ and I told her that ‘all I got was crap from her and none the benefits’ and she would laugh a hearty obscenity in response…

“My role in her life the last few years was to make her laugh…and I accomplished that goal on many phone calls. She was the type of friend you could not speak with with for months and then talk like we had just left off from yesterday.

“My dear Brenda Buttner..she was the little sister I never had. I miss her terribly and yet she is in my heart forever and an inspiration to all that knew her and her battle.”

brenda tributes

Eric Bolling, another Fox News co-worker, Tweeted his condolences Monday afternoon after the news broke.

“Our colleague and my friend Brenda Buttner passed today,” he wrote. “She fought cancer heroically. RIP Brenda. We will miss you.”

And Greta Van Susteren wrote simply: “We will all miss Brenda.”

The late reporter is survived by her two daughters.

May Brenda Buttner rest in peace.

Holy Shit — Even Fox News Is Calling Out Donald Trump’s Anti-First Amendment Comments

Just… wow.

This exchange on live TV is really something.

On Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace went after Reince Priebus, who is Donald Trump‘s Chief of Staff in the White House, regarding Trump’s comments about the news media being the “enemy of the people.”

And you know how it is — when you’re The Donald and you’ve lost Fox News, well, you’re probably losing everybody.

John McCain Just Called Donald Trump A Dictator!

Now, Senator John McCain has seen a lot in his day -- but he's not exactly overlooking the dangers Donald Trump is posing to America, and our First Amendment, and the freedom of the press.

Speaking to host Chuck Todd on NBC's Meet The Press today, Senator McCain didn't hold back in calling out that terrible Trump tweet about the press becoming the enemy of the American people.

Video: Trump's Ridiculous Press Conference Goes To Late Night!

You remember that tweet Trump sent yesterday, right? It's this one (below):

Well, that attitude didn't sit so well with McCain, who went off on Trump in the interview.

McCain laid it all out there about Trump's dictatorial tendencies, too, with the Arizona Senator saying to Todd:

"I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time [without a free press]. That's how dictators get started ... When you look at history, the first thing that dictators do is shut down the press. And I'm not saying that President Trump is trying to be a dictator. I'm just saying we need to learn the lessons of history."

Uh-huh. Sure you're not saying President Trump is trying to be a dictator.

Suuuuuuuuuuure.

Related: Trump Made Chris Christie Order Meatloaf At The White House!

But seriously -- Senator McCain is right.

Trump is a horrifying wanna-be dictator, and the only thing that'll keep him from doing it -- besides his own gross incompetence as President -- is more people like McCain calling Trump out for the person he's become.

Showtime confirmed this sad news in a statement, while Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost, Warren's son, relayed the following to fans:

On Monday, the X Factor alum cemented her single artist status by taking to the stage at The Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform her hit, Bad Things, with Machine Gun Kelly. This appearance marks the It-girl's first TV performance since leaving the beloved girl group back in December.

Now this collaboration with the up-and-comer dropped back in November, but it's the first time she's performed it while not a member of 5H. Time certainly flies, doesn't it?

Not to mention, Cabello's stop by DeGeneres' show comes only a handful of weeks after her former bandmates tried to shade her at the People's Choice Awards by leaving out her lyric from their single, Work From Home. Nonetheless, it seems like Camila is doing much better now that she's a solo act... it probably helps 5H isn't doing great these days!

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the full performance for yourself (below)!
