Fox News Mistakes Patti LaBelle for Aretha Franklin Because Of Course It Does

On Thursday morning, the entire world lost a legend.

As previously reported in detail, Aretha Franklin died at her home in Detroit - while under hospice care, surrounded by family members and loved ones - at the age of 76.

She passed away from pancreatic cancer.

And while the tributes and messages in the singer's honor have come flooding in from all corners of the Internet and television, one in particular has sparked some unfortunate buzz.


It comes from the Fox News Channel.

In relaying to its viewers that Franklin, arguably the most influential and successful solo artist in music history had passed away, the cable network shared the image above.

It features a photo of Franklin; her name; the year she was born; the year she died; and another photo... of Patti LaBelle.

Yes, seriously.

While honest mistakes happen all the time and while we're certain this was nothing more than a mindless snafu, the image has caught the attention of social media users everythwere simply due to its source.

Meaning what, exactly?

Let's just say that few are surprised that the President's network of choice is the one who mixed up one African-American singer with another.

We'll just leave our commentary at that.

Others, however, had a bit more to say about the Franklin-LaBelle mistake, in meme form and in exasperated Tweet form.

To wit:

forehead slaps

The incorrect visual appeared during America’s Newsroom, as hosts Bill Hemmer and Sandra Smith discussed Franklin’s immense talent and musical legacy.

They said very nice things about her on air.]

Producers just were unable to tell one famous black woman from another.

President Trump, meanwhile, confusingly noted in remarks to the press that Aretha was a person who had "worked for me."

Former President Barack Obama, who had Franklin sing at his 2009 inauguration, Tweeted the following:

Aretha helped define the American experience. In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade—our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect.

May the Queen of Soul rest in eternal peace.

And LaBelle, like so many other celebrities, also chimed in on this very sad passing:

labelle tribute

Franklin was the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and earned 18 Grammy Awards over her illustrious career.

She was a true icon.

Despite what Fox News accidentally tried to imply above, she was one of a kind.

May she rest in peace.

UPDATE: Fox News has apologized for the mistake and said it meant to include both Franklin AND LaBelle in that image, but the former got cropped out.

There's just one problem: Franklin is not in that Associated Press photo with LaBelle. 

She could not have been cropped out because she wasn't on stage with LaBelle at the time that picture was taken.

"We sincerely apologize to Aretha Franklin’s family and friends," said Fox News in this statement, adding:

"Our intention was to honor the icon using a secondary image of her performing with Patti LaBelle in the full screen graphic, but the image of Ms. Franklin was obscured in that process, which we deeply regret."


The image of LaBelle the network used was from a 2014 White House concert called “Women of Soul.”

Franklin and LaBelle did not perform on stage at the same time. And, as Mediaite points out, the AP photo used in the graphic does not include Franklin at all.

Said Aretha's family upon confirming her passing:

In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart. We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family.

The love she had for her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins knew no bounds.

We have been deeply touched by the incredible outpouring of love and support we have received from close friends, supporters and fans all around the world.

Thank you for your compassion and prayers.

We have felt your love for Aretha and it brings us comfort to know that her legacy will live on. As we grieve, we ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.

Married at First Sight Recap: Mother, May I Stay Married to Her?

Tristan Thompson brought out the big guns this week on Married at First Sight.

(Once again, we must note: Not that Tristan Thompson, not the basketball player who cheated on Khloe Kardashian left, right and every which way possible during her pregnancy.)

Instead, weeks after new wife Mia Bally got stopped by security at an airport due to a history of stalking, the other Tristan Thompson asked his mother, Kathy, to speak to his shady better half.

Tristan on Married at First Sight

Mia actually spent two days in jail as a result of the aforementioned incident, leading Kathy to say the following to her daughter-in-law:

"I mean, this is kind of difficult. I was a prison guard and I prayed for you because I know what they do to pretty girls."

Fair point. Fair concern.

But what about Mia's marriage to her son?

Does Kathy still approve?

After looking into Bally's eyes and listening to her side of the story, Kathy came around and gave Mia her blessing.

"I felt at ease that she was sincere and she was telling the truth,” Tristan's mom said, focusing on how quickly the reality stars had said they were in love with each other.

Yes, love.

“Tristan doesn’t throw that word around casually at all,” she said. “It’s kind of quick for me.”

Amber Martorana

Elsewhere on this week's episode...

Dave and Amber introduced each other to their friends... and it didn’t exactly go well.

First, Amber asked her pal Zachia and her husband over for dinner, with Dave taking exception to how Zachia liked to bust her man's balls.

Was it good-natured? Maybe.

But she wouldn’t even let him have a drink and continually made comments to let everyone know that she the one in control in the relationship.

“Dave has to know Amber and I are forever,” Zachia said. “They may actually get annoyed that I’m going to be here all the time.”

married dude

Dave wasn't down with this.

He said Amber’s friends “wouldn’t fit in well” with his group of friends, but this was of no concern to Amber... because she didn't even want to meet Dave's friends!

“I have my own friends already so I don’t feel like I need other friends,” she said to her husband, who was clearly taken aback.

In the end, though, this was much drama over nothing because the couple did chill with Dave's pals a bit and they were nothing but nice and supportive of Amber.

Danielle Bergman and Bobby Dodd

Finally, we arrive at the tale of Danielle Bergman and Bobby Dodd.

And it's a kind of boring one because these two just get along so darn well!

“I’ve been married for two weeks and it feels easy,” Bobby said, while Danielle added she can’t find anything she doesn’t like about Bobby.

Like, nothing. At all.

“Anytime Danielle says anything positive about me, it makes my heart skip,” Bobby said.

And that was it. 

No issues here over groups of friends or over one side getting taken into custody for totally creeping on a former lover.

Good for them!

"Liberal Cuck" on $100,000 Pyramid Mixes Up Obama and Bin Laden

Over the past few years, we've shared the the occasional game show flub here or there.

There was THIS catastrophic Wheel of Fortunate guess, for instance, as well as THIS mind-numbing attempt to solve a puzzle.

But nothing, and we mean nothing, compares to the snafu made on-air by Evan Kaufman during a round of $100,000 Pyramid.

Kaufman was competing with ex-Saturday Night Live cast member Tim Meadows on the game show hosted by Michael Strahan.

He was given perhaps the simplest clue anyone could possibly be given, having to simply list to Meadows "People with the last name Obama" in order to the actor to guess that the answer was...

People with the Last Name Obama.

But instead of naming Barack or Michelle or Sasha or Malia (heck, even Bo Obama, dude) after a very pregnant pause, he said, "Bin Laden."


To Kaufman's credit, he didn't make any excuses or conjure up any tales over why he made such a grave mistake.

Heck, he even admitted there was some "racism" tucked deep inside his head. How else to explain such a mix-up?

"This just goes to show you that even a liberal Globalist Cuck like yours truly has some inherent racism lurking in my brain. What a disaster," Tweeted Kaufman as one of 13 messages he posted online after the slip-up went viral.

"What you don’t see in this clip is me, shocked, correcting myself and saying Barack," he adds, continuing;

"Tim gets the answer. We get stumped on Margarita a few questions later. Turns out Margarita is Tim Meadow’s Grandmother’s name."

Concludes a humilated Kaufman:

Tim feels bad he lost the money for me, because he's sweet. Kathy Najimy can't look me in the eye. I leave knowing that my day of reckoning is coming. Maybe they can cut it out? They can't... it's timed.

I leave with $8500... and the story of the worst pyramid guess of all-time.

Watch this amazing/horrifying clip now. It's remarkable.

Bachelor in Paradise Recap: Becca is Back!!!

The Colton and Tia Show continued on ABC on Monday night.

By which we mean Bachelor in Paradise, of course, but early installments of Season 5 have focused heavily on television's most famous virgin and the woman he briefly dated a long time ago.

Becca in Paradise

Early on this week, Chris, Nick and Jordan confronted Colton Underwood after he came back from his date with Tia.

Was he really open to a renewed romance with his quasi ex?

Yes, Colton told the fellas, but he was also still exploring other bikini-clad options while he pondered this possibility. Underwood just wanted to "figure things out," he said for the 972nd time.

Colton also noted that he couldn’t simply turn his feelings for Tia back on after being in love with Becca Kufrin and pursuing her for two months.

See, these are the challenges that face the men who go straight from The Bachelorette to Bachelor in Paradise. It isn't easy, folks.

Tia and Colton

Fast forward a short bit and Tia got irritated with Colton when she realized he was flirting with Angela, concerned he was just keeping her on the side for whenever he felt giving her attention.

Afraid she'd end up like Dean and Kristina, Tia stood up for herself to Underwood.

Playing all innocent and trying to be honest, Colton told Tia he intended to talk to other women...  but he didn’t know what he wanted.

(This is sort of the entire point of the series, right?)

However, Tia wanted for Colton to be jealous of her smooch with Chris -- and when he didn't really seem to care, she said she had enough.

She refused to stay in the situation because she knew she deserved something wonderful, something Colton was not providing.

Colton Confessional

So... did Colton survive the night?

He didn't get Tia's rose and he struggled with Angela, but then Bibiana swooped in and saved the hunky football player.

The next day, Becca paid the women a visit.

She was on hand to offer them advice, but her presence caused Colton to break down in tears, forced to relive the heartbreak that resulted from her elimination of him a few months prior.

Seeing Becca brought back all these difficult memories, as the episode concluded with Kufrin making her way over to the man she sent packing on The Bachelorette.

Colton Underwood Shirtless

Elsewhere this week...

- Kenny took Krystal on a wrestling date, despite the fact that she’d swapped spin with Kevin the evening before.

- Kenny then got in the ring and showed off some impressive moves, and the two later connected over their experiences on two-on-one dates.

- Back at the beach, Kevin grew tired of having concerns over his relationship with Krystal. He therefore decided to pursue other women.

- He and Astrid hit it off in an unexpected matter and before we knew it... they were kissing and holding hands!

- David warned Annaliese about Jordan, which made her anxious, yet her nerves were calmed a bit when Jordan arranged a romantic dinner on the beach for the two of them.

- They made out and she gave him her rose later in response.

- John and Kendall also kissed this week, but the latter actually gave Joe her rose, while Angela handed hers to John.

- Finally, Nick failed to win Chelsea over and our beloved Wills went home roseless.

Can ABC just go ahead and make him The Bachelor already?!?

Teen Choice Awards Winners: Riverdale Rules!

That's the best way to describe what went down at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night, as Riverdale practically swept the television categories, while The CW ruled the small screen all the way around.

There were appearances by the Shadowhunters cast, Chris Pratt, Anna Kendrick, Nina Dobrev, Lucy Hale, Noah Cyrus and many more... along with a few memorable fashion choices.

The Bachelor: It’s Down to These 6 Men!

... and then there were six.

With The Bachelorette having just wrapped up its latest intense season, attention now turns to The Bachelor.

Specifically, attention now turns to one question in particular: Who will be the next Bachelor on ABC?


Many past suitors have already made their pitches, with Wills Reid, for example, saying he hopes to be the first African-American Bachelor.

Viewers, meanwhile, appear to want Jason Tartick as their main man next winter and spring.

In a call with E! News this week, however, ABC executive Rob Mills - the network's Senior Vice President of Alternative Series, Specials and Late-Night Programming - said the pool actually goes far beyond the two men mentioned above.

"There are probably six strong contenders," Mills says.

Some of these contenders, such as Reid and Colton Underwood, will appear this summer on Bachelor in Paradise, meaning ABC is not in a major rush to arrive at a final decision.

"What's great about this is that we have some time, we obviously have Paradise, it can air and we can see if anyone from there who's really popping," Mills told E!.

Okay, but let's get to it.

One of the following six men will be your next Bachelor...

Peter Kraus Selfie

PETER KRAUS: He was the runner-up on Rachel Lindsay's season and he was passed over at the last-minute last year in favor of Arie Luyendyk Jr. last year.

But Mills said the personal trainer is still a fan favorite.

"People like Peter, I know. I have to say we hear that a lot.

"Certainly people absolutely adore Peter. You never know who it's going to be.

"As we saw with Arie, we look at everything, not just the last season. Who knows who it's going to be.

Ben Higgins is Handsome

BEN HIGGINS: Wait... what?

The Season 20 Bachelor has split from Lauren Bushnell in 2017 and may apparently become the second person to be the Bachelor twice.

"I think Ben Higgins is always somebody who we would consider," Mills says.

"As long as the timing is right for him and for us too, but if he's ready…obviously everybody wants to see Ben happy and finding love."

(Editor's Note: This would be incredibly lame.)

Joe, 31

JOE AMABILE: Yes, Grocery Store Joe. Chris Harrison explains:

"People love the guy and freaked out. People like that, when we see them pop and really become of the American consciousness, then yeah, they become the Bachelor.

"Nick was a good example of that, you never know when you're Bachelor is going to pop out."

COLTON UNDERWOOD: The show would garner a great deal of attention if it cast a virgin as its lead.

Gifted a Rose

The other two men under consideration, according to Mills, are Blake Horstmann and Tartick.

In general, what is Mills looking for in The Bachelor:

"I think it's a combination of sincerity and really just somebody who can have a lot of fun and be entertaining. I think that's why somebody like Sean Lowe worked so well, because he really was the perfect balance of that."

He was truly looking for a wife and he was very clear about that, he wanted what his parents and grandparents had. But also, there was a real sense of fun from Sean. A great sense of humor.

"Everybody has different traits. That was one where I t thought it was sort of the right balance.

"Look, I thought Juan Pablo was a great Bachelor in his own way, because he certainly was entertaining."

Oh boy.

We can all agree that any of these options would suffice, right? Except for Juan Pablo.

"We'll see how Paradise goes…he could be engaged by the end of Paradise," Mills says of Colton.

"If he wasn't though, he certainly has a lot of the attributes that you love in a Bachelor. There's a little bit of that Sean Lowe, not use in looks, but he's also a guy who is surprisingly funny and charismatic.

"Colton could be a very interesting Bachelor.

Khloe Kardashian SLAMS Kris Jenner: Stop ART-SHAMING Me!

Back before she was feuding with Kim, we saw Kourtney be so rude about Khloe's upholstery choices that Khloe asked what crawled up Kourtney's ass.

Well, Kourtney's not the only one giving Khloe a hard time. In this KUWTK sneak peek clip, it's Kris' turn.

And now Khloe is calling out Kris for, get this, "art-shaming" her. Art-shaming.

Khloe kardashian with her arms krossed

"What are those gold things?" Khloe asks her mother in a new preview clip from Keeping Up With The Kardashians. "Are those, like, ceramic ...?"

"Those are Jeff Koons," Kris replies.

Khloe replies: "I don't know what a Jeff Koons is."

Khloe's tone of voice, as you'll hear, is precisely the tone that you might use if a coworker brings up a professional athlete when you've never watched a sports game in your entire adult life.

"He's famous for the balloon dog," Kris explains.

Khloe kardashian kris jenner and jeff koons

Kris has a suggestion for how her daughter might broaden her horizons and ask fewer gauche questions.

"You need to go to, like, an art class," Kris suggests to Khloe.

Khloe did not appreciate Kris' artsplaining, which she felt was a condescending response to her question.

"Just because I'm not as knowledgeable as you," Khloe protests. "You shouldn't turn your nose up."

"You should be like, 'Khloe, Jeff Koons is ...' instead of making me feel less than and uneducated," Khloe suggests.

Her feelings are valid, but that doesn't necessarily mean that she is not overreacting to her mom's words a little.

Jeff koons art owned by kris

Speaking to the konfessional kamera, Khloe explains her frustrations with her mom.

"My mom has not known about art for years and years," Khloe reveals.

Khloe continues, saying: "She's just learning about art -- which is great!"

It's good that Khloe isn't bashing her mom's interest in art, just what she perceives to be Kris' newfound know-it-all tone.

"But," Khloe says. "You can't art-shame people just because they know less than you."

Fun art fact: art-shaming is ... not a thing.

Kris jenner at her computer

"I'm your f--king daughter," Khloe protests. "And you're art-shaming me! And it's mean!"

Some might argue that Kris had simply answered her question, and then offered a helpful suggestion for how Khloe could learn more.

"I don't understand why people like to make other people feel like s--t," Khloe laments.

"Sorry," Kris says, starting over. "It's a Jeff Koons."

This time, there is no suggestion that Khloe could take an art class.

Kris then helpfully spells his last name: "K-O-O-N-S."

Khloe kardashian facepalm pic

Sometimes people who are just learning about something will be condescending about what they do know, in part to shield themselves from embarrassment about their past ignorance.

That's just part of human nature.

It's also more than possible that Khloe was being a little overly sensitive about her mother ... answering her question.

Jeff Koons is a famous artist, but he's a modern artist (several years ago, one of his pieces set a record for most expensive art of any living artist).

It is totally understandable that Khloe wouldn't know his name. Art history dates back thousands and thousands of years, folks.

Shahs of Sunset Season 7 Episode 2 Recap: It’s My Party and I’ll Make You Cry If I Want To

If you watch Shahs of Sunset online,  you know that Golnesa 'GG' Gharachedagh is not a Shah to be messed with. 

On Shahs of Sunset Season 7 Episode 2, she was blindsided that her friend Mercedes 'MJ' Javid had iced her out of her wedding. 

In a stunning move, MJ confirmed that the only one of her close friends who was going to be part of the wedding was MJ, with the rest of the help coming in the form of the people who help her work out and do her makeup. 

Reza and MJ

"Her glam squad is her bridal team," GG complained. 

GG and Adam fumed when they realized that they had been left out and made their way to the bar to throw shade at both MJ and Reza. 

What made it worse was that Reza and MJ then shocked their friend by confirming that Shalom's ex-wife was also in attendance at the event. 

That was enough for GG to flee the party. 

"Take me the f**k out of here," she yelled at Shervin. 

Golnesa "GG" Gharachedagh Promotes Shahs of Sunset

"I don't want to be around these people anymore. Why would they do that?," GG fumed while in the smoking area of the party. 

Reza then told MJ that GG was annoyed about the way things went down, and we learned that they were both mad about the way GG acted on the ski trip. 

Earlier in the episode, GG ruined the surprise before everyone left the ski resort. 

"So how does Tommy feel about the maid-of-honor who had his d*** inside you?," GG blurted out upon hearing the news.

"Do you want to be in the bridal party? You can't be happy for me?" MJ asked her friend. 

Mercedes "MJ" Javid

"I have no intention of enabling friends who act like a**holes. If you do something shady, then don't cry when something happens to you," MJ continued. 

While GG may be against weddings for now because of her failed marriage to Shalom, MJ was unimpressed at the way her friend was acting. 

"I feel bad for GG for not being happy for us," MJ complained in a confessional. 

Reza tried to break the ice by apologizing to GG for ambushing her. 

Mercedes Javid and Tommy Feight in Fake Snow

"I wanted to apologize, so this doesn't become a thing," Reza said.

"It's a thing already," GG responded. 

Meanwhile, MJ was trying to get in shape so that she could get married and have a baby with Tommy. 

However, she worried that her father being ill could affect her potential pregnancy. The good thing about the wedding and the freezing of the embryos is that Vida finally feels happy for her daughter. 

This could have been brought on by Doctor Ghadir, who said that MJ needed positivity in her life. 

"I would like for you to be positive with her because I can't wait to give all of you good news," he told Vida.

Christina and Tarek El Moussa: We’re Getting Back Together!*

*In a professional sense and setting, that is.

On Wednesday night, Christina El Moussa took to Instagram in order to announce that she and her ex-husband are not just getting along perfectly well these days.

They are getting along SO well that they will continue to co-host Flip or Flop!

Christina and Tarek El Moussa on HGTV

"We’re baaacckkk!!!" El Moussa told her 875,000 followers yesterday, adding in exciting detail:

#FlipOrFlop was just picked up by @hgtv for 15 new episodes!! Look for Season 8 to premiere in Spring 2019. We want to make it the best season yet....

What do you want to see this season?!

Christina and Tarek, as you likely know by now, announced their divorce in late 2016.

Many HGTV viewers understandably feared at the time that this would also mean the end of the pair's popular home renovation and house flipping series, especially once details of the break-up became public.

(Ummm... Tarek had a gun and Christina feared he as suicidal?!?)

Christina El Moussa and Tarek El Moussa... Together!

However, ratings for Season 7 of Flip or Flop were actually up 18 percent from the previous season, which isn't really all that shocking, is it?

Of course folks would tune in more than ever to see how a divorced couple would act around each other, right?

Would there be noticable tension?

Would personal differences be amicably put aside in the name of professional success?

The answer to the first question proved to be no and the second question yes, as Tarek and Christina have managed to avoid bashing each other to the press, while maintaining a strong enough relationship to co-parent their two young kids.

It's been pretty cool to watch, actually.

El Moussas

Late last year, both halves of the former couple even acknowledged their split about a year after it happened, taking an admirable perspective on it via a pair of social media posts.

First, Christina quoted a passage from a book that read as follows:

"You do not get to choose the events that come your way nor the sorrows that interrupt your life. They will likely be a surprise to you, catching you off guard and unprepared...

"To suffer, that is common to all. To suffer and still keep your composure, your faith, and your smile, that is remarkable."

And then Tarek confessed that he was at a low point around the time of his divorce, but:

"In my opinion, rock bottom is an opportunity to start over and do it right!"

Christina and Tarek El Moussa at the Daytime Emmys

Such a life view has worked out well for both Christina and Tarek, as well as HGTV.

“Fans have followed Tarek and Christina through scores of house flips and supported their personal journey for years,” said Allison Page, president HGTV and Food Network this week, adding:

“We’re eager to see how they continue to run their flipping business, co-parent their children and start new chapters in their professional and personal lives.”

For Christina, this may mean marrying some dude named Ant Anstead.

But Tarek doesn't seem to care. He's just focused on real estate right now.

"I know we've been around for a really, really long time, but we are back," he said on his own Instagram page yesterday. "We're ready to flip some houses!"

Are you ready to watch them do so?

Grant Gustin Hits Back at Body Shamers After The Flash Costume Pic Leaks!

Fresh after the announcement that Ruby Rose will play Batwoman in the Arrowverse, a very unflattering photo of Grant Gustin in a new Flash costume leaked.

The The Flash star took to Instagram to assure concerned fans that no, that's not the final look for the Season 5 costume.

But he also took aim at the hateful trolls who decided to body-shame him. Body-shaming is never okay.

Grant Gustin on Instagram

After an unflattering photo of Grant Gustin posing in a new Flash costume was leaked, some fans were alarmed by the new costume's look.

Worse, some trolls decided to body-shame Gustin for his narrow build.

In response to the backlash, Gustin took to Instagram, writing: "So here's the thing about this bulls--t photo leak."

"It's a cool suit," Gustin affirms about his actual costume. "There's a terrible photo that I was unaware was being taken, much less being posted."

"Some things need work and they will be worked on," Gustin acknowledges. "We'll get there."

The Flash Costume Photo Leak

(So, again, this is not the final look -- this is an image from a fitting)

"As far as the body shaming," Gustin continues. "That's what pisses me off. Not even just for my sake."

"I've had 20+ years of kids and adults telling me or my parents that I was too thin," Gustin shares.

That is awful. Unless someone is unhealthy, there is no such thing as too thin or whatever. And even if someone is unhealthily thin, that's still nobody's business.

"But there's a double standard," Gustin acknowledges. "Where it's OK to talk s--t about a dude's body."

True. Though we should point out that, just weeks ago, other vicious trolls singled out his unbearably gorgeous costar, Candice Patton, and body-shamed her over an alleged weight gain.

The Flash is in Trouble!

"I do my best to stay in shape and add as much size as I can throughout these seasons," Gustin shares.

Honestly, that's really not necessary, and we'll explain why in a bit.

"I'm naturally thin, and my appetite is greatly affected by stress," Gustin explains. "Stress is something that ebbs and flows for me throughout a season."

Some people stress-eat. Others can't eat when they're stressed.

Gustin explains: "Thus, gaining weight is a challenge for me."

A Prison Break on The Flash

"I didn't cast a slim actor as The Flash," Gustin explains. "I went to an audition for a role I never dreamed I'd actually book."

"But, here I am 5 seasons later," Gustin affirms. "I'm happy with my body and who I am."

That is great!

"And," Gustin continues. "Other kids who are built like me and thinner than me should be able to feel the same way."

He's right!

Gustin adds: "Not only that, but they should be able to feel like THEY could be a superhero on TV or film or whatever it may be some day."

The Flash Finale Photo

"I love the suit that has been designed for me," Gustin shares to reassure worried fans. "And I think when everyone sees it in its entirety, you will love it too."

Remember when some snapshots of the Titans cast leaked and fans were worried, but the photos were misleading and the real looks were revealed to be much better?

It sounds like this is happening again.

"Things have been adjusted since that leaked shot was taken," Gustin promises. "And more things will continue to be adjusted until it feels right."

Gustin also took to his Instagram stories to say: "F--k whoever leaked that."

The Flash Season 2 Premiere Pic

Gotta be honest, I'm a little behind on my Arrowverse shows -- though I still know the spoilers. (Honestly, who didn't know who Jessica Parker Kennedy was playing?)

But this case of body-shaming is especially odd because Flash is always, always supposed to be slimmer. He should have a track team build.

Unfortunately, a lot of television shows present male bodies in only one form, whether we're talking about Teen Wolf of Arrow. Anybody else, even if large portions of the audience would find them attractive, keeps their shirt on.

This perpetuates the idea that there's only one acceptable way to be attractive on camera.

The Flash Photo

Well, Flash is not supposed to be a "hunk." He's supposed to be a slender speedster.

But even if that were not the case, that would still be no excuse to body-shame anyone. Grant Gustin is a real person with real feelings.

And so, by the way, is Candice Patton.

So not only is there zero reason to body-shame either of them, but even if their bodies didn't "look right," you don't get to ruin somebody's day because their flesh prison isn't shaped like you wish it were.

Other people don't exist merely for your viewing pleasure.

We're reasonably confident that the finished costume will look great. Even if it doesn't, that won't be the fault of any of the actors. Please be nice.

The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 18 Recap: There’s No Place Like Home

The long-gestating feud between Dorinda Medley and Luann de Lesseps continued on The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 18

Yes, this feud is absurd, but it's making for good TV, we guess. 

Luann was still trying to get Dorinda to admit that she had a high dependency on alcohol, but Dorinda seemed like she didn't care. 

Tinsley Mortimer Cries

“I know Dorinda feels the need to apologize over and over again, but I don’t need a fake apology,” de Lesseps said in a confessional.

“Show me. Show me that you’re doing something about the drinking problem. I feel bad about people that can’t cop to the bad behavior.”

“I hope that she takes a look at herself now and says, ‘Oh my god, I need to go take care of this and get help,’ ” she continued.

“It’s hard to ignore drunken attacks from Dorinda when she’s your friend, and she comes gunning for you.”

As for Medley, it seemed she was over the friendship if it meant she was going to be put on blast every step of the way. 

Dorinda Medley Attends Premiere

“Maybe the friendship isn’t as important as I thought,” Medley said.

“A handshake’s only good if there’s two hands involved," she continued of Luann's half-assed apology. 

The good thing is that they managed to remain calm with each other at other events during the hour. 

It opened with the two of them and Sonja visiting Ramona's newly refurbished home. Ramona was chanting that she bought everything from the internet. 

Luann called BS because there's no way an interior designer was not all over that house like a rash. 

Luann de Lesseps is Looking Good

Luann's reactions to Ramona's comments were the funniest part of the episode. She immediately noticed there was something off with the way Ramona was going on about it. 

The conversation quickly turned to poop-gate, and by that, we mean the food poisoning the housewives endured after their rocky trip to Colombia. 

After the ladies rehashed events and laughed about it, they went on to state that pooping was still an issue, but Sonja maintained that she was fine. 

The reason?

She wore a diaper on the way home and got to poop as and when her body commanded it. 

Yes, we really did just talk about poop. 

Tinsley Mortimer Attends 2016 Whitney Party

Meanwhile, Tinsley wondered whether there was something wrong with her because she was the only one who was not worried when the apocalypse hit the ship. 

Carole admitted in a confessional that there was something seriously wrong with Tinsley if she thought the way she reacted was okay. 

The waterworks quickly started, and Tinsley got mad when Carole said that her failed relationship could be to blame for the way she was acting. 

What was most telling about the hour was that the editing team showed off Bethenny's new apartment in the same episode. 

There's something to be said about putting these two women against each other, but there was really no contest. 

Bethenny Frankel in Orlando

Bethenny's was visually stunning, and Ramona's was mostly white. We get it; white makes things look bigger.

Big Brother Recap: Did Angela’s Target Evade the Block?

The Big Brother hacker has had way too much power in the house. 

Being allowed to changes one nomination, pick a veto player and eliminate a vote is the definition of power trip, and Angela Rummans raged on Wednesday's latest episode that the power had been taken from her. 

With Tyler vowing to save himself from the block, Haleigh took to the Diary Room to explain why she went all the way and put him on the block. 

Angela Rummans Smiles

She was adamant that Tyler was smarter than everyone was giving him credit for, and she had a point: This is the man who has flawlessly (until now!) played each side of the house to imply he has been trying to save them all at one point or another. 

As for Tyler, he wrongfully claimed to his alliance that Bayliegh was the one who hacked the game and that he wanted to get some sweet revenge because she was trying to get him out the house. 

Angela initially claimed Scottie was the hacker, but she ultimately realized that it would be too obvious for him to take himself off the block, and her target was firmly on Bayliegh. 

She and Kaycee joined forces with the aim of taking Tyler down and nominating Bayliegh in hs place after the veto. 

Bayleigh Dayton Is Not Amused

What was the most telling was that Bayliegh met up with both women and seemed on board with keeping the nominations the same for the week in an attempt to get no blood on their hands. 

Haleigh then continued to throw people off by choosing Kaycee as the veto player.

The veto competition was hosted by Jessie from Big Brother 10 & 11. It was the one with the houseguests rolling the ball back and forth and running around the platform. 

It came down to Tyler and Angela, and Angela said that she wanted to have all the power for the week, so practically begged for the veto. 

Tyler put his trust in her, but did it pay off?

Bayleigh Dayton on Big Brother

Bayliegh grew suspicious because it was just hours earlier that Angela was promising not to change the nominations. 

Angela followed through on her plan to throw Bayliegh up on the block after taking Tyler down. Bay was blindsided after Angela wrongfully claimed that she was the one with the power and that her "power trip was over, honey."

Remember how crazy Bay went when Brett called her "honey" last week? Yeah, this was another passive-aggressive speech from Angela. 

That means Rockstar and Bayliegh are the week's final two nominations. Bayliegh will be sent home tonight. 

Angela Rummans

Her power is too risky to keep in the game.

Denise Richards: I’m Coming for You, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!

Look out, all Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Someone who has dealt for years with Charlie Sheen is headed your way.

So she's ready for anything!


Indeed, following weeks of rumors and innuendo, Denise Richards confirmed on Thursday via a statement to People Magazine that she has joined the cast of this long-running Bravo franchise.

“I am so excited to join the cast, as I am a huge fan of the show," Richards said simply today, adding of the ninth season to come:

"I am looking forward to spending time with all the ladies… and hopefully meeting Boy George!!”

(Confused? Richards is referencing her close friendship with fellow star Dorit Kemsley, whose husband, Paul, is Boy George’s manager. For real!)

On future episodes of this wildly popular program, Richards will join Kemsley, Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Erika Girardi and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave for a bunch of scripted drama and craziness.

And this won't be her first time on reality television, either.

Denise Richards in a Silver Gown

The actress actually starred on two seasons of It's Complicated, a series that chronicled her life as the mother of two and the ex-wife of someone such as Sheen.

It ran on E! from May 2008 through July 2009 -- and it wasn't received too warmly by critics.

Wrote Variety at the time as a review:

"She's traded on her sexuality to become one of those public figures who cavorts with other public figures, and we (or, at least, those of us inclined to watch and read about such fluff) are voyeurs."

The series also earned a D from the Boston Herald, who summed it up, after critic Mark A. Perigard watched the first episode, as follows:

"Denise Richards’ life is one steaming pile of pig poop...Literally

Still, Bravo jumped at the chance to hire Richards.

Denise Richards Red Carpet Photo

"I love Denise Richards, wouldn't it be so cool to see Denise Richards as a Housewife?" producer and talk show host Andy Cohen said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight last week.

At the time, he refused to confirm whether she'd actually be on the show, of course, simply teasing:

"The thing about it is, we don't announce casting until the show's about to come out. So, you're not going to hear anything from me for a while."

That much is true, we suppose: We still have not heard from Cohen on this casting.

But he and Richards' new co-stars will likely comment on her addition soon.

Denise Richards at the Grove

An Illinois resident, Richards is likely best known professionally for having made out with Neve Campbell in the movie Wild Things.

She also appeared on episodes of Jane the Virgin, Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce and something called Vanity.

On the big screen, she last had a role in the film The Toybox, which featured family members who were killed off by their haunted RV.

Are you psyched for Denise Richards to be a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills?

Bachelor in Paradise Recap: Colton and Tia Are Awkwardly Reunited!

We were promised hookups, tears, and feuds in the Season 5 trailer for Bachelor in Paradise. And it looks like they've already begun to deliver.

Colton's long-awaited reunion with Tia Booth was a lot more complicated than either of them had imagined.

And even though there's now a gang of stars determined to take down Colton, this couple is only part of the drama. ...

Tia Booth with Colton Underwood

First we have to talk about Tia Booth and Colton Underwood.

Or, rather, about just Tia -- because Colton wasn't there yet.

That's right. Producers are messy b--ches who live for drama (literally, it's their livelihood), so they brought Tia in before Colton arrived ... and they gave her a date card.

Don't get us wrong, Tia totally had Colton on her mind. It had been months -- she revealed that they hadn't gotten to chat since The Bachelorette.

But Tia's no fool -- she had the date card and, hey, Chris was right there.

Colton Underwood Works Out Shirtless

To be fair to Chris, he went on this date with Tia with the impression that Colton was a thing of the past for her.

At the risk of sounding like a gossiping 11-year-old, we report that the two of them totally made out.

She even said "Colton who?" while they were kissing, which is ... a great way to tell the person you're kissing that you are, in fact, thinking about someone else.

Of course, as soon as this thing was Chris was underway, Colton arrived. Because of course that's how they timed it.

Producing a reality series is a genuine art form, folks.

Colton Underwood with Tia Booth

Colton was also given a date card right off the bat.

After what we imagine was some gentle prodding from producers, he did speak to some of the other fine young women in Paradise.

But he did, of course, hit things off with Tia again -- for the first time in nearly half a year.

They kissed, and Tia was clearly over the moon.

Colton wants to figure out what this situation really means for him.

Joe, 31

Ah, Grocery Store Joe.

We know from previews that he gets into conflict with Leo, but right now, he's living his best life and enjoying flirtations with just about every woman in Paradise.

Joe likes Tia, but Tia likes Colton (and liked Chris, however briefly).

Krystal likes Joe, but Joe likes Kendall. This, as we know, will lead to Leo calling him a "Grocery Store B--ch" which sounds like a turn-of-the-century insult that a farmer would hurl at a city-slicker.

Krystal also likes Kevin, so we'll keep our eyes on that as it develops.

Speaking of Kevin, he still has some sore feelings about his breakup with Ashley Iaconetti and her abrupt engagement to Jared.

Ashley Iaconetti and Kevin Wendt, Hockey Game

Let's see, what else?

Chris is teaming up with Nick and Jordan to take down Colton, which sounds totally plausible if they're sitcom characters or supervillains but is otherwise super weird to hear from adult ment.

Not as weird as Chris calling himself "Goose," but still weird. Especially since they're (sort of) the "Goose Gang."

No part of that is not awkward.

This is only the beginning of the drama, of course. There's so much more to follow -- including a lot of tears.

Ruby Rose to Play Lesbian Superhero Batwoman on New CW Series!

It's time for some great casting news!

Ruby Rose will be joining the CW's Arrowverse. She will be playing Batwoman as the titular character in the upcoming TV series.

Even before that series premieres, fans will get to see her make an appearance as Batwoman.

Ruby Rose Will Play Batwoman

Greg Berlanti is living his best life. He is producing Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, Titans, and more.

And soon, he and writer Caroline Dries will have a new series for The Cw: Batwoman.

The character of Batwoman will make her first appearance before her show even begins, because she will have a role on his December's big DC crossover event.

And The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Batwoman will be played by Ruby Rose.

Ruby also a model and recording artist, and is noted for acting roles on Orange Is The New Black and Dark Matter as well as film roles like John Wick II and The Meg.

This is great news!

Batwoman CW image

If you're not familiar with the character of Batwoman, you should start off by knowing that she is emphatically not Batman's girlfriend.

In fact, Batwoman is Bruce Wayne's cousin. Also, she's a lesbian. Her name is Kate Kane.

Like her cousin, she utilizes combat skills, detective work, and gadgetry in order to combat her city's criminal element.

The Batwoman series will follow Kate Kane as she pursues her interest in social justice and her training in street fighting, battling her inner demons and also battling crime in Gotham.

There have been a number of versions of Kate's story over the years -- that's the nature of comics. It's likely that fans will see both new and familiar elements of Kate as they watch her joint he Arrowverse.

Ruby Rose in Black-and-White.

While Batwoman won't be the DC's first lesbian superhero on the CW (for example, there is Anissa Pierce, aka Thunder on Black Lightning), or the first LGBT+ lead on a DC show (that would be Sara Lance on Legends of Tomorrow), she will be the first gay lead.

Showrunners had decided from the get-go that they wanted to cast an openly gay actress for the role.

Representation is important, and a lot of heterosexual actors have been hailed as "brave" for portraying LGBT+ characters over the years.

Ruby Rose, who came out as gay when she was 12, and was dating Jess Origliasso of The Veronicas until April of this year, is a great fit.

The Arrowverse is affirming its commitment to representation with Nicole Maines, a trans woman who will play a trans superhero, joining Supergirl as a series regular next season.

Ruby Rose Tattoo Selfie

When the news of her casting broke, Ruby took to Instagram to confirm it to her followers.

"The Bat is out of the bag," Ruby's captions begin. "And I am beyond thrilled and honored."

"I’m also," she admits. "An emotional wreck."

This means so much to her, she explains, "because this is a childhood dream."

"This is something I would have died to have seen on TV when I was a young member of the LGBT community," Ruby says. "Who never felt represented on tv and felt alone and different."

Kids and teens need representation, too.

"Thank you everyone," Ruby says. "Thank you god."

Ruby Rose Looks Great on Instagram

We still do not know which other characters will be featured on Batwoman, let alone who will play them.

(We all have our fancasts of who should play Renee Montoya -- a comics character often associated with Batwoman, though, like Harley Quinn, Montoya was originally conceived in the 1990s for Batman: The Animated Series)

Batwoman is expected to air on the CW, while other upcoming live-action DC shows like Titans, Doom Patrol, and Swamp Thing will be making their debut on the DC Universe streaming app, which is now available for preorder.

Congratulations to Ruby Rose for living her dreams and getting to bring this comics legend to life!

Big Brother Spoilers: Who Got Blindsided?

Bayliegh Dayton's power app has been the topic of the conversation in the Big Brother house ever since Brett Robinson threw her under the bus for it during Thursday's live eviction. 

The power in question allows Bayliegh to hijack the nominations, and put two people of her choosing on the block at the nominations ceremony. 

The major caveat with the power is that she has to use the power before the reigning HOH announces their own batch of nominees.

Bayliegh was quick to turn to Angela Rummans, who is the HOH for this week, to tell her that she will not use her power because she knows that she is safe. 

But Angela is working with Tyler Crispen, Brett, Kaycee Clark and Sam Bledsoe, and knows fine well that Bayliegh and her power is a huge threat. 

With the hacker twist being thrown in, and Tyler being thrown on the block, Angela was quick to float the idea that Bayliegh was the hacker and wanted to mess up the game. 

At the veto competition, Angela slid into victory, meaning she actually got to have all the power for her HOH reign.

She tried her best to keep Bayliegh under the assumption that she was not putting her up as the backdoor target. 

Bayliegh wanted Scottie Salton put up on the block because she claimed he was untrustworthy. However, unbeknownst to Bayliegh, Tyler and Angela told Scottie everything Bayliegh and her side of the house said about Scottie. 

Angela even cut a deal with him to keep him free from the block if he votes with Level 6 and keeps her safe if he's in power next week. 

Scottie was happy to do so, and Angela blindsided Bayliegh by removing Tyler from the block and putting the flight attendant up in his place.

In the immediate aftermath, Angela locked herself in the HOH room, and Bayliegh rushed up to find out why she was lied to. 

Angela kept the door locked and yelled through that she did not want to talk to her. A frustrated Bayliegh made her way downstairs to pack her belongings and complained that Angela thinking her being the hacker was ridiculous. 

FYI: Bayliegh had no idea that Haleigh was the one who won the hacker competition. 

Bayliegh then turned her attention to Rockstar, saying that helping her get off the block was the reason for her being on the block or something.

Kaycee struggled to keep it together because she felt bad about the way things went down with Bayliegh. Kaycee walked around the house crying, and Bayliegh ultimately lets her know she was not mad at her. 

Tyler was then cornered by Bayliegh, who said: “I swear I’m not that Hacker and it was ever my plan to backdoor you.”

In all honesty, Bayliegh is playing the innocent card when viewers (and the other houseguests, for that matter) know she was scheming to get her own way. 

Haleigh Broucher

Haleigh still has the power to eliminate one of the votes, but Level Six will still have the majority and Bayliegh will be heading out the door on Thursday.
