The New Faces of Pride: Maisie Richardson-Sellers on Diversifying the Entertainment Industry and More

by

Andy Cohen & More React to Historic LGBTQ Supreme Court Ruling

With coronavirus making large-scale festivals a public health hazard and widespread protests forcing the nation into a reckoning on racial inequality, this Pride season is one unlike any other. And yet, the spirit of a movement itself born out of a protest lives on. As the month of June comes to a close, E! News has asked some of Hollywood’s newest generation of LGBTQ stars to share what Pride means to them in 2020.

Welcome to The New Faces of Pride.

For the last four years, Maisie Richardson-Sellers has won CW fans over with a pair of roles on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, first playing Amaya Jiwe (a version of the DC Comics character Vixen original to the series) for two seasons, followed by another two as shape-shifter Charlie. But the conclusion of the show’s fifth and final season brought about the queer English actress’ departure from the series so that she might, as co-showrunner Phil Klemmer told TVLine, “make her mark as a filmmaker on her own.”

While we await news of her filmmaking, Richardson-Sellers joins E! News’ week-long New Faces of Pride celebration, offering her take on the state of things in this most unusual year.

As we find ourselves in a Pride season unlike any other, with the country battling a pandemic while rising up to tackle the systemic oppression that’s plagued Black Americans for decades, how has your personal definition of Pride changed or shifted this year?

Growing up, Pride was such an exciting and affirming time for me. But the more I’ve traveled, the less prideful I’ve begun to feel.

5 Entertainment Gift Ideas

by

There is something magical about the holidays. The changing leaves and blankets of snow are excuses to curl up in your warmest blankets and sip something hot. Even if you live in a place warm enough to skip the snow, you can still sip hot cocoa anyway. That’s the great thing about the holidays—there are no rules. However, the true magic of the holidays lies in gift giving. What is more rewarding than watching someone you love open the perfect gift that you picked out for them? That’s right! Nothing. We have compiled a list of five things that are sure to keep the magic of the holidays alive with gifts that are perfect for any entertainment lover.

  1.  Movies/DVDS

My favorite thing to do leading up to Christmas (or any other holiday) is to watch movies. I tend to curl up with my warmest blankets and my laptop and watch the movies that involve the upcoming holiday’s theme in some way. My favorite Christmas movie to watch is The Family Stone. I watch it every year without apology. So why not gift your loved one with a good movie? Give them a gift you can watch together.

  1. Music

Music is always the answer in our opinion. You can’t go wrong when you gift your loved one with their favorite artist’s new album or EP. If you want to introduce them to new music, why not go old school and make them a mixed CD? Nothing says I care about you more than, ‘Hey, I heard this song and thought of you.’

  1.  Books

No, really. Books are some of the best things about the holidays. There’s nothing more fun than being able to transport yourself to another world to laugh, cry, and smile for a few hours as the holiday festivities come together around you. Is your loved one a fan of pop culture like we are? Gift them the funny, witty, and honest essay collections of their favorite people like Roxane Gay, Mindy Kaling and Issa Rae. They’ll thank you for it later; trust us.

  1.  Gift Cards

Gift cards are perfect when you’re an indecisive, self-conscious gift giver. Gift cards give you the freedom to be confident in your choices because you’re essentially giving out free money. Your loved one can buy what they want (i.e. the books, music, movies), and you still get the credit. Sweet, right?

  1.  A Hulu, Netflix or Apple TV Subscription

Hear me out. Who wouldn’t love a year of free TV and movies? Offering your loved one a chance to never miss an episode of their favorite TV show and a chance to watch all of their favorite classic movies is a surefire way to get the favorite cousin, child, or niece title you’ve been eyeing for years. Plus, it gives you an excuse to sit and watch with them in the name of insuring it is everything they hoped it would be.

Trending News: ‘Entertainment Weekly’s’ Newest LGBT Issue

by

This past week, Entertainment Weekly released its first LGBT issue in 15 years and gracing the front cover is the fabulous and marvelous Laverne Cox.
Cox became the first transgender person to land the cover of TIME back in May of 2014 and has since scored a number of other firsts. In July of last year, she became the first openly transgender actress to land an Emmy nomination for her role as Sophia Burset in Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, and in June of this year, it was announced that she would become the first transgender person to appear in wax form in Madame Tussauds.
She is an advocate of LGBT rights and has worked to advance the public understanding of the trans community. When faced with ignorance and misunderstanding, Cox calmly corrects those who have it wrong.
After Vanity Fair unveiled its 22-page cover story introducing Caitlyn Jenner to the world (which hit newsstands this week) people tried to pit Cox and Jenner against each other, as well as focus on Caitlyn’s physical transformation. Cox took to her tumblr to support Caitlyn, as well as point out issues the transgender community faces that cannot be ignored.
She said, “Most trans folks don’t have the privileges Caitlyn and I now have. It is those trans folks we must continue to lift up, get them access to healthcare, jobs, housing, safe streets, safe schools and homes for our young people. We must lift up the stories of those most at risk, statistically trans people of color who are poor and working class.”
The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force’s Injustice at Every Turn survey gathered statistics about discrimination that the transgender community faces. Forty-one percent of respondents reported attempting suicide compared to 1.6 percent of the general population, with higher rates for those who lost a job (55 percent), were harassed or bullied in school (51 percent) and more. These staggering statistics are devastating.
When these issues are brought to light, it also brings a number of ignorant people to the surface. These trolls can be found on the Internet spreading hate anonymously or they can be found on social media pages. It’s important to remember that we can help spread knowledge about these issues and work to dissipate the ignorance of these topics. Study the statistics, read the articles and learn how to talk about these issues. There’s still a long way to go.

The Power of Entertainment: B.E.T. Awards

by

bet-awards-2013If you’ve never witnessed the excitement of music, movies, television shows and fashion statements all at once, then you’ve probably never tuned in to the network, BET. Each year BET celebrates its success by having award shows. The show that “Anything can happen”, according to this year’s host, Chris Tucker. The 2013 BET awards was memorable because of its talented guests and performers in the entertainment industry.

I’ve been anticipating the exciting event all summer when it finally aired on Sunday June 30th. I was anxious to see what some of my favorite celebrities were wearing, who looked “Hot or Not”, and the most memorable performances. The most important event of the show consist of entertainers earning awards. Some of the categories included “Best new artist, best collaboration, best video, viewers choice”, and much more.

One of my favorite performances was by R&B legend R Kelly. His music has been around for generations and his talent has impacted new artists of the future. When he performed, his name was a trending topic on twitter, meaning millions of people were mentioning him in their tweets. He performed some of his most classic hits and the crowd went wild! Most of the guests in the audiences were singing along word for word.

Singer Chris Brown had a great opening performance and his dances were full of energy. He has always been a great performer and known for his talented skills. The BET awards gets better and better each year because there is always going to be something new for us to see. These performers plan and practice all year around, knowing that the performances are a huge deal to the guests and viewers at home watching.

The exciting genres of music such as hip hop, R&B, jazz, pop and reggae are celebrated with memorable performances. I am always thrilled to see will happen on next year’s show!

Irina Shayk supported ex Bradley Cooper at the premiere of his film ‘Nightmare Alley,’ sparking speculation that the two are back together.

Irina Shayk gave a pinstripe suit a sexy update at the premiere of ex-boyfriend Bradley Cooper’s film Nightmare Alley in New York on Wednesday, Dec. 1. The model, 35, paired the black suit with plunging leather suspenders as she posed on the black carpet, once again sparking speculation that she and Bradley, 46, have reconciled following their 2019 split.

The model slicked her hair back and opted for a bold red lip for the evening, while Bradley — whom she shares daughter Lea, 4, with — looked dapper in a black suit. The former couple did not pose together at the premiere of the film, a 1940s crime thriller about an ambitious carny who has the talent of manipulating others. The movie is based on the 1946 novel of the same name by William Lindsay Gresham.

Bradley leads the ensemble cast as Stanton Carlisle. Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett, Toni Collette, Willem Dafoe, and Richard Jenkins also star in the Guillermo del Toro-directed rendition, which serves as a remake of sorts of the 1947 film adaptation. At the premiere on Wednesday evening, Bradley told Entertainment Tonight that having Irina there was “very special.”

Without any further ado, here are 6 exciting TV shows available for your viewership on the ABC network:

Big Sky

From TV show creator David E. Kelley, comes one of the most promising criminal mysteries of all time. Big Sky is a tale about a private detective, who is faced with a case to solve the mysterious kidnapping of two sisters on a highway in Montana.

The private detective seeks out help from a former cop, who happens to be her partner’s ex-wife as well. The duo then embarks upon the hunt for a truck driver, who not only kidnapped the two sisters but has been at it for quite some time now. Noteworthy actors joining this cast include Katheryn Winnick, Kylie Bunbury, Brain Geraghty, and several others.

A Million Little Things

A Million Little Things is a romantic comedy brought forth by creator D.J. Nash. The TV show revolves around a group of close friends, who are shocked to find out that one of their friends has committed suicide.

This horrendous revelation compels them to finally start to live their lives to the fullest, as any one of them could be the next to leave their life. The show beautifully portrays the important role a friend plays in a person’s life. Prominent actors performing in this show include David Giuntoli, Romany Malco, Allison Miller, Christina Moses, and a few others.

Home Economics

This comedic tale focuses on the vastly different lifestyles of three siblings. The youngest sibling, Connor (portrayed by Jimmy Tatro), is the wealthiest among the three of them with his own equity firm. Next comes Tom (portrayed by Topher Grace), the oldest, who lives a middle-class life of an author. The third is Sarah (portrayed by Caitlin McGee), a child therapist who is barely making ends meet.

The show depicts how the significantly different financial backgrounds may create conflicts among the three but at the end of the day, family is all that matters. Other Hollywood actors to join this cast include Karla Souza, Sasheer Zamata, Nora Dunn, and some others.

The Hot Zone

You may have already heard of the infamous Ebola virus (EVD) and the terror it spread across people. Now, have a look at how it made its way into the United States back in the ‘80s. The series shows how the first known case of EVD was witnessed in chimpanzees in a lab in Washington D.C.

After discovering it, a scientist decides to risk her life to save the human population from ever encountering it. Actors blessing this spectacle with their performances include Julianna Margulies, Noah Emmerich, Topher Grace, Liam Cunningham, and a few others.

The Rookie

The Rookie shows that it is never too late to join a career that you may be better suited for. Nathan Fillion stars as John Nolan who experiences a life-altering incident and decides to act on his dream of joining the LA Police Department.

Even though he is the oldest rookie in the precinct, he perseveres to be one of the most promising officers that the LAPD has recruited. Though, he does face quite serious challenges along the way. Actors assisting Fillion in supporting roles include Alyssa Diaz, Richard T. Jones, Melissa O’Neil, Eric Winter, and some others.

Cruel Summer

Finally, Cruel Summer is a thriller drama about a popular teenage girl named Kate (portrayed by Olivia Holt) in Texas, who is abducted. In an apparently separate situation, Jeanette (portrayed by Chiara Aurelia), an awkward outcast of the school, becomes the most popular girl in town.

What is the reason behind the sudden disappearance of Kate and her connection to Jeanette? You will find the answers once you tune into this TV show. Other actors joining this cast include Froy Gutierrez, Harley Quinn Smith, Michael Landes, and some others.

Priyanka Chopra Jokes About Her ‘10 Year Age Gap’ With Husband Nick Jonas In Hilarious Roast Clip

by

Priyanka Chopra put her comedy skills on display and joked about her age gap with Nick Jonas in Netflix’s ‘Jonas Brothers Family Roast.’

Priyanka Chopra showed off her comedy prowess in a Jonas Brothers Netflix special. The actress, 39, joined several other celebrities for a roast of her husband Nick Jonas and his brothers and bandmates Joe and Kevin for Jonas Brothers Family Roast, available to stream now. Priyanka did not hold back, even joking about the 10-year age gap between her and her 29-year-old husband, whom she wed in 2018.

“I am honored and so thrilled, actually tickled, to be here tonight to roast my husband Nick Jonas and his brothers, whose names I can never remember,” Priyanka began her roast. “I’m from India, a country rich in culture, in music, and entertainment, so clearly the Jonas Brothers didn’t make it over there.” The star then addressed the age difference between her and her husband.

“Nick and I have a 10-year age gap, we do,”Priyanka said. “And there are many ’90s pop culture references he doesn’t understand, and I have to explain them to him, which is fine because we teach other.” She continued, “He showed me how to use TikTok, for example, and I teach him what a successful acting career looks like.”

She then joked about Nick’s vanity. “Seriously, I want to talk about how much I love my husband and one of the things I love about my husband is how much we have in common,” Priyanka said. “You know, for instance, we’re both totally, completely, wholly obsessed, and I mean obsessed, with Nick Jonas. We love Nick Jonas. He’s our favorite.”

Diana, The Musical Star Claps Back After Show Is Called “Disrespectful” to Princess Diana

by

Why Princess Diana’s Close Friend QUIT “The Crown”

From Kristen Stewart in Spencer to Emma Corrin and Elizabeth DeBicki in The Crown, numerous stars have impersonated the legendary Princess Diana.

But one of the latest attempts has got fans all riled up, with some social media users calling the new Diana, The Musical “tacky” and even “disrespectful” to the late royal. Following its Broadway premiere, the star defended the controversial show against recent criticism. 

“I’m intrigued why people think it’s great to make a really serious film about her, but really bad to make a light-hearted musical,” actress Jeanna de Waal, who plays Princess Diana, told Variety in a story published on Friday, Nov. 19. The outlet notes that the musical has been called a “sensational flop which abuses a tabloid telling of Diana’s life for a few laughs and a cheap song.” 

Seemingly referring to Spencer, Jeanna reflected, “They’re both produced privately for profit, and they’re both entertainment. So, why is one fine and the other isn’t?” 

She added, “The audiences who come to see our show, who wear tiaras and boo at Charles, are just as deserving of their entertainment as someone who wants to go to the movies and weep.”

“It’s literally the point to be exaggerative,” Jeanna went on. “It’s a musical, and by all accounts Diana was the most fun, most silly, most rebellious, most spontaneous person. And I genuinely think she’d enjoy it.” 

Matthew Murphy

The actress, who has also starred in Kinky Boots, expressed that she likes the tone of the musical. “I love that our show doesn’t take itself seriously.
