  1. Is Ivana Trump low-key trying to leave her ex 'out there'? Apparently, she encourages him to tweet. I'll just leave that thought out there.

    1. MissLlanviewPA

      I've chosen to view her quote as low-key shade, too. I HOPE it is, anyway. I used to like her a lot before her Orange Anal Wart of an ex-husband started his run for President. 

  2. The Megyn Kelly bloopers are circulating social media and getting more looks than her show.

     

  3. Out of the blue, I just thought of Shenell Edmonds because I remembered that her family is from the island of Dominica and wonder how the recent hurricane might have affected her family. 

  4. #DotardTrump is trending!

      Disturbing, if not surprising, to see how many will enable North Korea for their own purposes. 

    2. DramatistDreamer

      ...and the fact that almost no one respects Trump.

  5. 32 years ago, The Golden Girls premiered.

     

  6. Martin Shkreli seems to be the living embodiment of an American Pyscho.

  7. Armie Hammer and Amber Tamblyn are spilling all the tea on James Woods' predatory predilections.

      God, I loved Armie's response. As if anybody believes his shock and outrage is because of the ages. Trash. Tamblyn's story is sad but expected. I'm glad she said it anyway. And now I know about the movie and will definitely be watching!

      Didn't Woods used to date the young actress who was one of the Glow by Jabot kids? I remember seeing a picture of them together and it looked so wrong to me. Ew.

      I don't know, I had to look this whole situation up. I see that he's had a sting of romances with much younger women.  Hey, that's legal, (so in the big picture whatever), but I believe AT when she says he propositioned her at 16 and said "even better" when she flat out told him her age.  To me the underage thing is the real issue and what makes him a hypocritical sicko.

      *string*

  8. Really feeling for the people of Barbuda, 60% of the island's residents are now homeless. 90% of the structures are totally destroyed. I heard that the sole reported death is a child, which is extremely sad (it would be sad regardless of age, TBH). I hope that is the only fatality, which would be remarkable considering the devastation.

    1. ReddFoxx

      It's really awful to hear about this. A lot of people forget that hurricanes also effect countries other than ours, so it's good that you brought up Barbuda. Hopefully they can recover.

      My family are originally from islands, so whenever there is a hurricane, the islands are usually foremost on my mind. I'm fortunate that so far, none of my family members in the Caribbean are in the path of Irma.

      The irony is my family in the U.S. are more likely to be affected since I have relatives in Florida and both Carolinas.

    3. Juliajms

      Very sad.  I hope Jose misses that area.

  9. This board suddenly turned glitchy a few moments ago. What happened?

    1. Errol

      Errol

      It had a hiccup. I gave it it's medicine. It's fine now :)

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      I only noticed because I happened to be posting at that precise moment and my post vanished into the cloud. It was funny and weird and astonishing all at once.  

      Thanks Errol, for fixing and letting me know it wasn't an optical illusion.:lol: 

  10. ABC is losing their biggest ratings generator.

    Shonda Rhimes Moves to Netflix From ABC With Huge Overall Deal

    1. NothinButAttitude

      NothinButAttitude

      Can't blame her. Must be a blessing to not have to answer to network heads and worry about restrictions on a streaming platform. 

       

      I wouldn't be surprised if ABC was losing their sh-t right now though. They know the second Shonda fully leaves ABC that they are screwed. They better take this hint and start searching and grooming new talent to try (and I mean try) and fill the void she'll eventually create. 

    2. ChitHappens

      ChitHappens

      Her current shows stay, and honestly, outside of Greys, the first few years of Scandal and yr one of Murder, has Shonda had a successful show on ABC?  ABC will still make money off of the 3 shows remaining (2 once Scandal is done).  

  11. What's a day without a reboot? The Karate Kid is back y'all!!

    1. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      I guess until Will Smith gets tired? Hid company is producing the series for You Tube's Red Channel. 

      Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, who played Daniel and his nemesis Johnny are co-executive producers as well as co-stars.

      *Shrugs*.

    2. Khan

      Khan

      It isn't so much a reboot, though, as it is a sequel, picking up on Daniel and Johnny in the present day.  Nevertheless, I'm unsure whether I'd watch.  Sometimes sequels can be DISASTROUS.

    3. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      And it's on You Tube Red. Ain't no way, I'm $ubscribing.

  12. Spare a thought for Kate Linder (Y&R,Esther Valentine) whose huband just passed away.

    1. Juliajms

      Juliajms

      This has to be one of the hardest things to go through. I hope she has a lot of support.

    2. YRBB

      Aaaaw. :( Thinking of her.

      I hope she's doing alright! :( what a horrible thing to have happen.....hoping she has plenty of love and support around!

  13. SON's junkware is overwhelming my normally effective ad-blocking software. Fix it, Lord!

    1. Vee

      Vee

      It's always been awful.

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      Until today, my adblocker was really good at blocking everything, so I had no complaints personally, although I am aware that others had multiple problems with adware, and popups.

  14. The political Tea being spilled today is too much!:lol: My teacup runneth over!

    1. Khan

      Khan

      Oh, Lord, what now?

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      @Khan I sent you a PM. You may know about this already. Tee-hee.

    3. NothinButAttitude

      NothinButAttitude

      @DramatistDreamer, you got political tea and you ain't sharing it with us?!

      He's been in a not-so-good place for years now. He seems to have been struggling emotionally and physically, to be honest.

    2. ReddFoxx

      His expression in his mugshot looks like he just doesn't even care.

    3. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      I'm glad nobody was hurt. These people can afford drivers, I just don't understand the decision to drive while impaired. He's lucky no one got hurt.

  16. "It was Blanche on the lanai with the wicker chair"

    Golden Girls Clue is here

  17. Happy Mother's Day to the Mom's out there and to everybody's Mom!

      ...and to the Moms and Grandmothers who are no longer here, you are not forgotten.

  18. Around the time when I'm seeing news clips of Comey being followed by helicopters on the drive to LAX like OJ in the Ford Bronco, I wanted to scream "This country is such a f*cking messss!" 

    1. Vee

      "This is JC, goddamnit! You know who this is!"

      :lol: I shouldn't be laughing but somehow I needed that laugh. I'm on the verge of taking up stress eating.

  19. There was a posting on social media that Queen Elizabeth II's staff have been summoned for an emergeny meeting. I hope it's not a matter of life and death. I hope it's alternative facts, wrongly reported--I mean, it's being tweeted by some Australian media outlet, so who knows?

    1. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      Apparently Prince Phillip is stepping down in the Autumn. Way to get hysterical Australian social media!:rolleyes:

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      LOL.

       

  20. Very interesting article that I'm currently reading on The Handmaiden's Tale 

    On The Handmaid’s Tale, Bernie Sanders, And Feminism

    1. DRW50

      DRW50

      That was a fascinating article. I had no idea they were so frightened of being associated with feminism or even the idea of a product pitched to female viewers/about a female character. It really does tell you the chill in the air. It's a microcosm of what decimated soaps.

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      This has been an issue that has been hiding just below the surface for a long time. It's now been getting more conspicuous witht the likes of Palin and Coulter's verbal assaults on feminists (while simultaneous accusing feminism of not embracing the conservative brand of feminism) but now that conservatives are have more emboldened, many are more reticent than ever about being avidly feminist. It's similar to the way liberal has negative connotations, whereas maybe in the 60s-70s, it might have been viewed differently. 

      There are some very interesting instances of women of renown being reticent to be seen as powerful for fear of being branded feminists.

      Have you ever heard the story of Lucille Ball during board meetings after she took over Desilu? That's an interesting anecdote.

  21. Don Cheadle slyly but very directly shaded the hell out of Stacy Dash!  

  22. I'm seeing a lot of "Vote Yes" to Strike Authorization notes from acquaintances in the WGA. Oh boy!

    1. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      I guess by May 2nd we shall surely know.

      That soon??:o

      Sally Sussman better hope that the scribe writers don't do better than her and the ratings go up for Y&R.:lol:

      Khan

      Don't forget: it was the last strike that put an end to LML's reign of terror -- not because she was a lousy HW, but because she refused to cross picket lines and continue her other duties as EP. ;)

  23. All signs are pointing to a possible Writer's Strike. Buckle up, folks.

    1. Melroser

      Melroser

      true, if the strike was extended but DAYS would be the one show that could weather a couple of months without having to have other writers step in. I mean, haven't they written like 2 years in advance. LOL. (I know, not that far...but far enough)

    2. Khan

      Khan

      IMO, GH would be the most vulnerable.  B&B and Y&R are in creative slumps that a potential strike might prolong, but not enough to finish them off for good.  And DAYS...?  Well, DAYS tapes so far ahead that, depending on its duration, the strike could come and go and leave the writing virtually unaffected.  Ergo, if DAYS' audience tunes out in droves during the strike on account of the writing, then they would have tuned out even if there WEREN'T a strike.

    3. ReddFoxx

      ReddFoxx

      A strike would likely end at least one of the soaps. CBS seems willing to leave it's soaps in place (B&B especially, since it has an international following), but the other two networks might cut their losses and flush their last remaining soap.

  24. Just couldn't avoid saying this, I feel heartsick about what happened to Mr. Godwin in Cleveland yesterday. My prayers go out to his family and hope this individual is caught and brought to justice.

    1. All My Shadows

      All My Shadows

      It's so terrifying.

    2. Juliajms

      Juliajms

      Me too. Just awful.

  25. RIP Charlie Murphy. He did look a bit thin over the years but I didn't know he was battling leukemia.:(

    1. DRW50

      DRW50

      And his wife died of cancer in 2009. How awful.

      OMG, yes I forgot about that!  Those poor children!
