    Empire: Discussion Thread

    I think the nature of our social media environment today will have people moving on fast, and events will speed along. IMO the election will not be affected. That being said, the right wing and MAGA cult will never, ever forget this and will bring it up constantly, not just this year and next year but for decades to come. The toxic stew of our politics is that much worse because of this.

    Empire: Discussion Thread

    Did Nick fake the whole thing? God, I don't remember. I don't think so, no. He did lean on his injuries a bit to try to keep Kyle in the relationship. When he confessed they chalked it up to his PTSD. IIRC he was intended to be part of the summer HS musical story that year (the actor was a Broadway vet) before ABC purged all the gays. Poor Jurnee (his sister) - about to make a major comeback as Black Canary in the new Birds of Prey film for DC/WB with Margot Robbie, only to face this.

    Empire: Discussion Thread

    No, I don't think that. It's a long way to November 2020 and the alt right will shame itself and the country in many ways between now and then. But I certainly don't think this helps any cause.

    Empire: Discussion Thread

    It really is a bad episode of Empire (and at least in Seasons 1 and 2, it would all play out in a single hour-long episode). "Jamal's buff, sinewed, glistening Nigerian co-conspirators who enjoy peacocking on the 'gram target Hakeem's baby. Only Jamal, the gay Tupac, can stop them! At the end Lucious pays off the Chicago police and blackmails Jamal into marrying a woman!" Worse, I believe there is a pic circulating of Lee Daniels cozying up to the two brothers.

    Empire: Discussion Thread

    That is a mental health note, I guess: How delusional do you have to be to be a major celebrity in 2019 and think you can get away with this?? That's why it was believable - who (particularly a very visible public figure) would be stupid enough to think they could pull this and not get caught? Cameras, social media, GPS, cell towers, phone and bank records, forensics...

    I know they can. They just can't for me right now.

    Empire: Discussion Thread

    I was making a conservative estimate. This is bigger. I have zero patience for his 'mental health' right now tbh. This is a rich celebrity on a global stage who just fundamentally compromised the safety and civil rights of a nation of minorities. He can just disappear AFAIC.

    Empire: Discussion Thread

    Before the last three years I would have found his original story wildly farfetched and laughable. Today, sadly nothing is impossible or even improbable. I thought it was outlandish, yet we live in outlandish times where we're shocked every day by some new American horror. He can never and should never work again. It's just unthinkable, the damage he's done to generations of black, queer and disadvantaged people across the country who are in very real danger everyday. The right wing will be dining on this case for the next 25 years.

    Celebrities on Soaps

    I won't hear a word against Snoop in Llanview! They built that into the history of the show and I loved it. LOVED IT. (Also, Florencia Lozano and Eddie Alderson around 2:25 in that performance video are hilarious)
  11. IIRC some of the recurring players during that era (Danielle Harris who played Molly being one) said he was a nightmare.

    Empire: Discussion Thread

    I think Chicago PD is scared shitless on this and doesn't want to say anything public rn bc they have quite a (bad) reputation and it is a very very incendiary situation. If it was up to them I think they'd quietly bury it for the sake of PR and this is the last thing they want. But here we are. I'd been following this quietly with growing dread for a week or two over the unanswered questions, but I still can't quite believe a major celebrity would do this in the age of 24-7 cameras and social media. If it's true, it's sick and grotesque and does immeasurable damage to so many civil rights causes in 2019. If it's false, several media outlets have a lot to answer for.

    Weird City

    A friend of mine woke me up to pix from that premiere and said I was to blame. Why, I have no idea! I did skim the episode and it looked cute. I guess I'll check it out when I'm not sick.

    GH: Actor returns

    They apparently wanted to bring Alan back alive in 2012 when they thought the show was going to end - Robin was going to find him held prisoner along with her. Stuart Damon supposedly wasn't up to it then or later.

    I hate Cheetos, actually. You know what I don't hate? Males over the age of 25.

    Glad to see we all had the same answer.
  20. Mandy Moore, his ex, has backed up a lot of this.
