CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have traded Josh Gordon to the New England Patriots.

The Browns made the news official on Monday afternoon. Cleveland will receive the 2019 fifth-round draft pick; the Patriots will receive Gordon and a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick.

Both Ian Rapoport and Adam Schefter first reported the news.

A source told Schefter Gordon is “healthy enough from his strained hamstring to play Sunday vs. the Lions.”

The Browns announced over the weekend they were parting ways with Gordon, who has appeared in only 11 games over the last four-plus seasons because of substance abuse issues.

‘Catfish’ Recap: Max Joseph Gets Emotional in His Final Episode

Nev and Max on Catfish
Nev and Max on Catfish MTV

The end of an era! After a seven-year run as the cohost of MTV’s Catfish, Max Joseph has finally decided to part ways with the hit reality show. In one final hurrah, he joined longtime friend and cohost Nev Schulman on a tear-filled journey to help Nick from Philadelphia discover the true identity of his online beau of five months, Jasmine.

Nick, a 29-year-old single father from Philly, had fallen for Jasmine after meeting on a dating site and continuing their flirtation on Snapchat. The lovestruck security guard even visited Jasmine in person once, only to be bizarrely blindfolded for the entirety of their interaction. Frustrated, Nick reached out to Nev and Max just as Max was embarking on his final Catfish mission.

Nev and Max uncovered that Jasmine’s photos belonged to a woman named “Jasselene” who claimed to not be talking to anyone named “Nick.” Crestfallen when learning Jasmine was not the woman in her pictures, Nick admitted, “I’m speechless, it pisses me off a little bit.”

Eventually, Nev and Max, with Nick in tow, met up with the woman behind the account — the well-meaning but anxiety-rattled Nicole. Nicole confessed that she didn’t “feel good” about herself and that creating a fake account was a way to “to talk to somebody.” After accepting her apology, the two former lovebirds agreed to be friends. Three months later, Nick was still single and Nicole was busy focusing on school. The duo had even managed to keep in touch and maintain a friendship in spite of their rocky past.

As the episode wrapped up, Max took the opportunity to say goodbye in a heartfelt speech filmed at the Catfish headquarters. The host emotionally confessed, “Working on the show for the last seven years has been one of the most meaningful experiences of my life.” He continued, gushing about his cohost, “Nev and I have become brothers and our bromance has blossomed before your eyes.” He explained his departure adding, “This is just something I’ve gotta do. It’s no secret that I have passions straddling two careers; as a TV host and a filmmaker. I feel like it’s finally time for me to make my exit.”

Max concluded with an important lesson, saying, “If I’ve learned one thing over the course of making this show it’s that we all have inclinations — especially online — to ignore people’s humanity and flatten them into our minds as a monster, a liar, a profile pic with no feelings or other qualities.” He continued, “I’ve met them and heard their story. I’ve realized they were just a human being; real, complicated. They’re just people — people who’ve been hurt, people who want to be loved.”

Nev then clarified that Catfish would go on in spite of Max’s farewell, saying, “We’re going to keep making the show and we’re going to find a new cohost. We’re going to be trying out a number of people over the next eight or 10 episodes.”

As the duo hugged it out on camera one last time, Nev whispered into his now ex-cohost’s ear, “Love you, buddy.”

Catfish airs on MTV Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET.

Do Not Pass OVO: Drake Gets His Own Custom Monopoly Board Game

Drake performing at O2 Arena in London

Source: WENN.com / WENN

Drake, currently on tour with the Migos, hit up his hometown of Toronto for a trio of dates for their “Aubrey and the Three Migos” North American tour. Ahead of the show, Drizzy was gifted his very own customized Monopoly board game with plenty of flourishes directly linked to the OVO Sound honcho.

As reported by NME, just before Drake’s performance at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, officials from Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Ltd. produced the board game which features street names, the OVO owl as a playable character, and photos of Drizzy emblazoned on the board game’s money.

From NME:

After postponing the first scheduled date on Monday (August 20), Drake’s first show of the tour in Toronto on Tuesday was greeted by the release of a one-off version of Monopoly – which featured his likeness and numerous references to his music career and the city he was born in.

The Scotiabank Arena were behind the customised game, which was gifted to Drake in celebration of his playing the venue this week. Described as a “custom North Side Edition Monopoly board”, the special Monopoly set featured famous Toronto locations as spots on the board, a new set of gamepieces (including the OVO owl) and custom Monopoly money.

As lit as the board game looks and the coin it would fetch, it is the only such game that will be made. The company said it likes to gift big headlining performers with gifts ahead of their performances and decided to go way big with the Monopoly remix.

‘Searching’ is the rare movie about the internet that actually gets the internet

TwitterFacebook

At first glance, Searching looks like just another cautionary tale about the dangers of the internet.

John Cho plays David, a dad who delves into his daughter’s virtual life after she goes missing. As you’d guess, he soon discovers there was a whole other side to his beloved Margot (Michelle La) that he never knew.

But of all the film’s twists and turns (and it’s a mystery thriller, so there are plenty), the biggest one might be that it’s not really anti-technology at all. 

To director Aneesh Chaganty, this was key. “Everything, everything we watch about technology is about how our screens are alienating us, how we’re obsessed with likes, how AI is going to take over the world so we should just stock up on our canned foods now,” he told Mashable earlier this month in LA.

Ohio State’s Urban Meyer Gets a Wrist Slap, Shows Little Remorse

College coaches and athletes have faced more severe punishments than the three-game suspension Ohio State handed its head football coach, Urban Meyer, on Wednesday evening. For less serious offenses. Tennessee once fired basketball coach Bruce Pearl for lying to investigators about hosting recruits at a cookout, since such niceties are NCAA violations. This month, nine football players from the University of North Carolina, which like all major college programs does not pay its football players a market wage despite the millions of dollars those players deliver their school, were suspended for four games for selling team-issued shoes.

But Meyer got just three games, even though an independent investigation led by former prosecutor and Securities and Exchange Commission chair Mary Jo White found that the Ohio State coach failed to properly handle domestic violence allegations against a former assistant coach.

Meyer also told a whopper of a lie to the public on June 24, when he said at Big Ten media day that he was unaware of 2015 domestic accusations against assistant coach Zach Smith, made by his ex-wife Courtney Smith. Meyer later apologized “for the way I handled those questions” at the media event, insisting that he “was not adequately prepared to discuss these sensitive personnel issues with the media.”

At a press conference at Ohio State Wednesday night, White said that while Meyer’s denials about his knowledge of the 2015 domestic violence allegations against Smith “were plainly not accurate, Coach Meyer did not, in our view, deliberately lie.”

Put aside, if you wish, the believability of Meyer accidentally fibbing about a serious, straightforward issue: his knowledge of domestic violence allegations against one of his coaches. (White’s report itself says “we cannot logically square Coach Meyer’s responses on Big Ten Media Days broadly denying knowledge of the 2015 events regarding Zach Smith with his extensive knowledge of those events in 2015,” but then goes on to note that Meyer “sometimes has significant memory issues” and “has also periodically taken medicine that can negatively impact his memory, concentration, and focus”).

All in all, Meyer got off pretty easy. He did not lose his job. Sure, after missing games against Oregon State and perennial Big Ten weak link Rutgers — both of which Ohio State should win — Meyer will have to sit out Ohio State’s game against No. 16-ranked Texas Christian University in Arlington, Texas. Still, he’ll coach the bulk of the season. He’s missing just one Big Ten conference game. He can even run practice before the Rutgers and TCU games. He can coach against arch-rival Michigan on Nov. 24.

But in watching Wednesday night’s press conference in Columbus, Ohio, after Ohio State President Michael V. Drake announced Meyer’s suspension (and the suspension of Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith from Aug. 31-Sept. 16 for management failure), you never would have known that Meyer got a slap on the wrist. His body language, and responses to reporters’ questions, sent a message that he felt he was the aggrieved party.

He rushed through reading a pre-written statement, robotically going through the motions. He sometimes asked reporters to repeat their questions, as if he couldn’t be bothered to pay attention. Meyer often appeared disengaged. When a reporter asked Meyer if he agreed with Drake’s decision to suspended him, Meyer pointedly didn’t say “yes.” Instead, he replied “I trust and support our president.” He clearly doesn’t believe he should have been suspended. Meyer believes he followed the proper internal reporting protocols about Smith’s behavior.

“I’m fully aware that I’m ultimately responsible for the situation that has harmed the university as a whole and our university athletics program. I followed my heart, not my head,” Meyer said at the press conference. “I should have done more, and I am sorry for that.”

None of Ohio State leaders at the press conference — Drake, Gene Smith, and Meyer — offered direct words to Courtney Smith, who shared text messages with college football reporter Brett McMurphy showing bruises and her 2015 communication with Meyer’s wife, Shelly Meyer, alerting her to the alleged abuse. (Zach Smith has denied the accusations of domestic violence). At the end of the press conference, a journalist gave Meyer an opening. “What message do you have for Courtney Smith?” he asked.

His reply was strikingly impersonal. “Well, I have a message for everyone involved in this,” Meyer said. “I’m sorry we’re in this situation.” He stared blankly at the reporter for a beat. “I’m just sorry we’re in this situation.”

Everyone Gets Free Soft Pretzels This Monday at Philly Pretzel Factory


Every year, I look forward to National Pretzel Day just as much as Stanley looks forward to Pretzel Day on “The Office.” Maybe it’s because my family’s weekend tradition was going to the mall just for something to do, and stopping for soft pretzels was always part of the plan.

And freshly made soft pretzels are even better when they’re free. This Monday, we can all enjoy a free soft pretzel at Philly Pretzel Factory.

How to Get a Free Pretzel at Philly Pretzel Factory This Monday

Philly Pretzel Factory co-founder Dan DiZio started selling pretzels at a busy intersection in Philadelphia at age 11 — and after graduating college, he and his college roommate turned his childhood side gig into a booming business.

Now, Philly Pretzel Factory is celebrating 20 years of serving up “hot outta the oven” soft pretzels with free pretzels for everyone on Monday, Aug. 20. And there is no purchase necessary — your fresh, buttery soft pretzel will be totally free.

Plus, you’ll have a chance to win free pretzels for a year! Just be sure to fill out a ballot card when you stop in for your free pretzel.

And don’t worry: You don’t have to take a trip to Philly to get in on this deal. Although the original Philly Pretzel Factory was started in Philadelphia, there are now more than 100 locations across 12 states.

Jessica Gray is an editorial assistant at The Penny Hoarder. She once celebrated quitting a horrible job by stopping by the mall for a soft pretzel before heading home to watch “Office Space.”

This was originally published on The Penny Hoarder, which helps millions of readers worldwide earn and save money by sharing unique job opportunities, personal stories, freebies and more. The Inc. 5000 ranked The Penny Hoarder as the fastest-growing private media company in the U.S. in 2017.

Waves Not Plastic Gets Involved in Projects All Over The World

Our mission at Waves Not Plastic is to bring awareness to plastic pollution through passion!  This organization has been established for ocean enthusiasts like you to make a difference in communities around the world.  We strive to clean up our oceans and change the tide on how our world refuses, reuses, reduces, and recycles.  Make the pledge and refuse single-use plastic. Do what you love, take care of the environment and make a difference!

 

Morocco, Africa

The brand educates local ocean enthusiasts. Morocco possess an amazing population of second generation surfers. Their warm and welcoming personalities combined with their love for the ocean and surfing, provide access to a valuable resource and partnership.

They also inspire traveling surfers. International travelers love to visit the beautiful country of Morocco. Comfortable weather, perfect surf, and the amazing hospitality shared by the locals draws thousands of surfers every year. Countless days are spent surfing world class waves while an unsightly amount of plastic washes upon the shores. Why not return the stoke from perfect waves and help our oceans?  After surfing all morning, spend that next hour after lunch waiting for the tide to change and pitch in.

They are also involved in global beach cleanups. A primary objective of WavesNotPlastic.org is to organize and manage beach cleanups in impacted areas.  With the support and assistance of Moroccan Surf Adventures we have applied resources in Morocco, Africa, to create community involvement and assist in cleaning our shorelines.

The locals are also educated on the use of single use plastics and these countries are provided water purification systems. Traveling to a far off destination and unsure about the drinking water? Single use water bottles suck and really stack up. Even if the surf is small you can still find ways to play in the water. Waves Not Plastic .org in action!  Two separate purification systems showcased in the video to the right, both no larger then a reusable canteen – both carry on approved.  No chemicals needed! Making a difference at camp with Moroccan Surf Adventures.

 

Nicaragua, Central America

As an organization, our primary goal is to educate and encourage individuals to get involved and make a difference.  The first thing that I noticed in Nicaragua was a young generation of surfers with a passion for the ocean.

 A unique correlation was that the livelihood of their families depended on the ocean environment.  From fisherman to small business owners, the success of their careers was directly affected by the health of the ocean.

However, I also noticed a major problem.  These same individuals who love spending time surfing in the ocean were not doing a good job of taking care of this precious resource.  Garbage was thrown into creeks that directly feed into the ocean.  Waste was discarded on beaches and left for the tide to wash it out to sea.

 These bad habits were not acted upon out of a dislike for the ocean, they were due to a lack of education and understanding on the harmful effects of pollution and plastic in the natural environment.

 Similar to our work in Northern Africa, an education platform was developed and shared with these local ocean enthusiasts.  The solution: find a common platform that inspires these individuals to make a difference.  The answer was simple.  SURFING!

Youth surf camps and competitions – 

Learning can be fun, and what better way to teach surfers than to go surfing?  Our education and outreach program picked up speed in Nicaragua by hosting a beach cleanup and surf contest for the local kids.  Waves Not Plastic produced a Surf Contest at Remanso beach that kicked off with both locals and traveling surfers participating in a beach cleanup.  The event was a success and the message was clear, “Do what you love and give back along the way.”

The kids hit the beach to clean things up and then hit the water to showcase the incredible talent of Nicaraguan surfers.  Everyone left the beach that day with something special, including first place finisher Diego and his new surfboard, compliments of Used Surfboards Hawaii.

“I will never forget this special experience and the stoke that these young kids shared for the ocean.  While surfing a few days later with some of the kids that participated in the event, a young surfer paddled up to me, pulled a piece of plastic out of his pocket that he had collected from the water and handed it to me with a huge smile on his face. ”  – Jeff Lenore

Founder / CEO, Waves Not Plastic .org

California, North America

 

California is our home.  It’s where we grew up surfing.  Fortunately, California possesses an incredible wealth of environmental organizations that are currently operating in the Golden State.  One of our favorite projects at Waves Not Plastic is to assist these organizations in protecting and healing ocean environments.

 Our platform in California consists of developing an education and outreach program.  With the assistance of our friends we have teamed up with some outstanding organizations to make a difference in our communities.

Our mission is to bring awareness to plastic pollution through passion!  Fortunately we have a few friends who don’t mind getting stoked. The team at Waves Not Plastic joined our friends at San Francisco Surfrider and some incredible local organizations to produce a beach cleanup focused around a  fun event.

Join Waves Not Plastic as we support the California Coastal Commission in celebrating  California Coastal Day.  We will be hitting the beach to produce a fun-filled afternoon focused around another great beach cleanup.  Bring your friends as we enjoy surfing, yoga, and a day of fun on the beach.

Sacha Baron Cohen Gets The Bachelor’s Corinne Olympios to Claim She Saved 6,000 People in Africa

Sacha Baron Cohen gave politicians a break for one segment of Sunday night’s episode of Who Is America?, conning controversial Bachelor alum Corinne Olympios into lying about outrageous acts of goodwill.

In character as an Italian photographer/playboy named Gio Madando, the comedian convinced Olympios to endorse his (fake) charity for relief in Africa, prompting her to pose in a bikini and half-zipped HAZMAT suit so he could Photoshop her into a picture of workers aiding those affected by the Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone.

He also interviewed her about her contrived volunteer work, suggesting she pretend she’d been on the ground for a month.

“”Yeah, but they’re gonna know I wasn’t there,” she whispered to him.

“”No, no, no, I run the charity, so don’t worry,” he assured her.

Her claims only got more outlandish from there.

“There was a war lord in Sierra Leone and he wanted to do a massacre, and apparently he recognized you, and you can tell us the story?” Baron Cohen asked.

She looked panicked for a moment, eyes darting around the set.

“He was gonna do a massacre of this village, and what happened?” Baron Cohen cajoled.

“So he recognized he, and he was a really big fan. … He was just really nice, actually, and he was really surprised to see me. I was surprised he knew who I was, and yeah, it was just really humbling,” she said, elaborating on her own, “It was good, because I saved 6,000 people. … I feel like because I was so kind back and I was so positive back, it really helped with the whole massacre situation.”

Unlike fellow Who Is America? targets like Sarah Palin and Joe Walsh, Olympios — who gained fame on Nick Viall‘s season of the ABC dating show — seems amused and even flattered about getting duped.

“Hopefully people just see that it is a Sacha Baron Cohen prank. He’s pranked a bunch of people with big names. It’s light, it’s funny, it’s nothing serious,” she told The Daily Beast. “I hope people can see that and they’re not going to freak out about me saying certain things, because people that know me know that I’m a really amazing person. And so, yeah, I just hope that I don’t offend anyone, but none of it was serious anyways!”

The rapper is now a mom and is realizing what that really means. But while it’s definitely not easy and nothing can really prepare you for it beforehand, Cardi B wouldn’t have it any other way.

Cardi has been sacrificing her precious sleep ever since welcoming baby daughter Kulture, but that hasn’t dragged her down.

Today, she took to her social media to share a video with her followers in which she addressed her 10 MTV Video Music Awards nominations, something she was obviously really happy and grateful for.

She also went on to open up about motherhood, using a doll to talk to the fans as she apparently did not look a hundred percent at the time and did not want to show her face.

‘Thank you to everybody. I cannot believe that I got nominated for 10 VMA Awards. I’m just been so busy, so tired. Like, I’m in a different world, a different dimension. Now, let me get back to this mommy thing. Let me tell you something. No matter how many books you read or advice I get, y’all will never be ready for mommy mode,’ she said in the clip.

Before that post, she shared a pic that showed only half of her makeup-free face and wrote that she absolutely needed some sleep.

Yesterday, Cardi also posted a pic featuring her and hubby Offset at the doctor with their newborn for a routine checkup and she was not wearing any makeup in that one either.

Ain’t nobody got time for that when they have a bundle of joy to take care of!

As you may remember, Kulture was born on July 10 and the rapper couple is yet to post a pic of her.

Tiffany Haddish Gets All Ugly Face Over Tyler Perry During Laugh Factory Routine [Video]

(Photo credit: PR Photos)

According to Anita Bennett’s UrbanHollywood411, funny woman Tiffany Haddish not only brought the house down Saturday night at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles with laughter, but ended up breaking down in tears herself.

During her set at the famous Sunset Strip comedy club, Haddish joked about being thrifty, taking a sabbatical from sex, receiving a car from Tyler Perry and being gifted the wardrobe from her upcoming film, Night School, with Kevin Hart.

Haddish warned fans they’ll see the outfits over and over, because she believes in recycling.

She also joked about her role in Perry’s upcoming comedy, Nobody’s Fool. She said the director’s rapid-fire production method caught her off guard.

“We shot that whole movie in ten days. I don’t know if it’s gone be any good,” she said to laughter.

“I don’t know if this sh–’s gone be funny. I don’t know what the continuity is gonna look like,” she joked. “I don’t know if in one scene, I’m gonna have three hairdos. I don’t know.”

Then someone in the audience yelled, “Tell us about the car!”

For The First Time In Its 216-Year History, West Point Gets First Black Superintendent

West Point, America’s premier military college, which didn’t graduate its first black cadet until Reconstruction in 1877, now has its first black superintendent.

For the first time in its 216-year history, Lt. Gen. Darryl Williams, who has held high-ranking posts in Europe and Asia, will become the first black officer to command West Point. He will take over from Lt. Gen. Robert L. Caslen Jr. who is retiring after more than 40 years in the Army, also serving five years as West Point’s superintendent.

William’s appointment, according to the Associated Press, comes less than a year after cadet and Rhodes Scholar, Simone Askew, a black woman from Fairfax, Virginia, was selected as first captain of the Corps of Cadets last summer and graduated in May.

A 1983 graduate of the military college and native of Alexandria, Williams has served first, as deputy chief of staff for the Army in Europe and deputy commanding general for support for the 2nd Infantry Division in South Korea. Recently, he was the commander of NATO’s Allied Land Command in Turkey.

Founded in 1802 along the west bank of the Hudson River 50 miles north of New York, West Point didn’t graduate its first black cadet until 1877. Throughout the 20th century, the military college didn’t graduate another black cadet until Benjamin O. Davis Jr. arrived there in 1932. During his stay, Davis ate alone, roomed alone, and was shunned by fellow cadets because he was black. After his graduation in 1936, he would go on to command the Tuskegee Airmen during World War II, retiring as an Air Force general in 1970. West Point’s newest barracks, per AP, was named after Davis.

For the past couple of years, the U.S. has increasingly shifted its focus on diversifying its ranks, with policies that emphasized inclusion, and marketing campaigns that targeted underrepresented communities. Of the 1,200 incoming members of West Point’s class of 2020, 186 are African Americans.

Hugh Grant Gets Candid About Becoming A Father And Finally Marrying At 57

After starring in a number of romantic comedies and falling in love on-screen, Hugh Grant has finally found romance off-screen and is happier than ever. The 57-year-old British actor exchanged vows with Anna Eberstein last month, and Grant says he regrets not getting married sooner.

During a recent appearance on The Today Show, the Notting Hill star joked, “You don’t think I’m too young?” He went on to say that it’s “really nice” being married, and he can’t pretend it isn’t. Grant also said he is lucky to have such a great wife, and he loves her.

On May 25th – two months after Eberstein gave birth to their third child – she and Grant exchanged vows in London. The couple also has a five-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter. Grant is also the father of a 6-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son with receptionist Tinglan Hong.

It’s not easy having five kids under the age of seven, and Grant told Savannah Guthrie that traveling poses some serious challenges. He said it is “unspeakable,” and you go through the dilemma of deciding if you actually travel with them or make an excuse, so they go with their mom or nanny.

Grant’s ex, Elizabeth Hurley, accidentally revealed back in March that Eberstein had given birth. When talking to E! News, she said that Grant is a great guy and she sees and speaks to him a lot. “He’s now a father of five, he has five kids, and he’s a great dad,” said Hurley.

Two days later, during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, she confirmed Grant and Eberstein’s baby news by saying they had another one, and he was “over 50 when he spawned them all.”

The Austin Powers star also said that she and Grant have been friends for 31 years, and he is still her “best friend in the whole world.” Hurley and Grant were together for 13 years, and they split in 2000.

As for his latest project, Grant recently starred as Jeremy Thorpe in the three-part Amazon series A Very English Scandal. Thorpe was a member of the British Parliament during the 1960s who went on trial for allegedly plotting to kill his former lover.

Hugh Grant’s latest project, A Very English Scandal is available for streaming on Amazon Prime.

Say What Now? Would-Be Robber Fall Throughs Convenience Store Ceiling, Gets Caught [Video]

Just because you may have seen something in an action movie, doesn’t always mean the same will work in real life.

Two would-be robbers found out the hard way.

via TMZ:

Where: Alberta, Canada
When: Earlier this week
Why: Two robbery suspects — a man and a woman — at a convenience store were attempting to flee from a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer.

Long story short … the cop busts out his taser to take down the guy. Meanwhile, his female friend tries to make a clean escape by running into the stockroom and climbing through the ceiling — y’know, ‘Mission: Impossible’ style. She almost made it. Almost.

This entire caper was captured by the store’s surveillance cameras. Thank God.

Take a look at the video below.

Gabrielle Union’s ‘L.A.’s Finest’ Gets The Greenlight At Charter

It ain’t over for Gabrielle Union’s police pilot. While Union’s drama, a spinoff from her Bad Boys 2 character co-starring Jessica Alba was rejected by NBC, it will live to see another day. Cable provider Charter Communications will pick up the drama as its first scripted show for this fall. It will run 13 episodes.

Shadow and Act reports:

“Charter has a strong passion for the project and we could not be more excited. Immediately we knew this innovative new platform was absolutely the right home for L.A.’s Finest,” said Jeff Frost, President of Sony Pictures.

“Charter is excited to partner with top producers Sony, (Jerry) Bruckheimer and the rest of the incredible team behind and in front of the camera on our first Spectrum Original Content endeavor. Our content partnerships offer us a great opportunity to provide Spectrum customers with the dynamic, authentic and unique programming that drives value for their Spectrum subscription,” said Katherine Pope, Senior Vice President, Head of Original Content, Charter Communications.“

Charter Communications also has original content deals with AMC Networks and Viacom and recently hired a seasoned TV exec, Katherine Pope, to head up original content. As Charter’s first move into this space, this is a big one. WIth high-caliber stars, recognizable continuity, its a key move for Spectrum’s space in high-end, premium content.

Arguably the most high-profile pilot of the season (with an expensive pilot said to cost $ 12M), NBC passing on the series was a shock as it features two movie stars and women of color. Union, who fronted the spinoff from the start, wanted to land a big name as her co-lead and personally sought Alba.

Shadow and Act spoke to Union about the pilot recently. “We’re really excited. And to be able to co-executive produce with Jessica Alba..it’s like, we feel like boss bitches. It just really feels good that two women of color are the leads, are the executive producers, put the whole thing together and that we know that we are deserving of this opportunity. That nobody gave it to us, we took it. So hopefully NBC agrees. No pressure, NBC (laughs)…but we really hope we are on the fall lineup.”

The series would see Union reprising her character, Special Agent Sydney “Syd” Burnett, from the second Bad Boys film. Burnett was an undercover DEA operative and sister of Martin Lawrence’s Marcus Burnett and love interest for Will Smith’s Mike Lowrey.

Teairra Mari’s Restraining Order Against 50 Cent Gets Denied By the Judge

Teairra Mari’s request for a restraining order against 50 Cent has been denied.

via TMZ:

As we reported … Teairra went after her ex, Akbar Abdul-Ahad, and his friend, 50, claiming they teamed up to spread images of her on Instagram that included Teairra with ejaculate all over her face.

She went to court to get a restraining order against them to stop sharing the photo … but the judge has now denied that motion. And according to Lisa Bloom, the judge denied the request “because she was not convinced that the photo 50 Cent posted, with ejaculate on our client’s face, showed her ‘engaging’ in a sexual act.”

Bloom also claims the judge wasn’t convinced 50 would post the photo again. Lisa took the judge to task saying, “Common sense dictates that photo of a woman with ejaculate on her face clearly depicts a sex act, and is the kind of humiliation the revenge porn law was designed to ban.”

As for Akbar, he’s scheduled to face the judge later this month. 

Whether she was ‘engaging’ or had ‘engaged’ in a sexual act is one heck of a technicality for the judge to get hung up on — wouldn’t you agree?

Sprint’s 55+ deal gets you two lines of unlimited for the cost of one Verizon line

Sprint Unlimited plan vs Verizon

It’s no secret that Sprint and T-Mobile undercut their competition on price — Sprint once set up an entire fake store to make the point — and one of the constant differences between Verizon (or AT&T) and the two smaller carriers are the frequent deals. If you pay attention, you can often get Sprint or T-Mobile service for significantly less than the sticker price, and some of the best deals are reserved for special groups like members of the military, or seniors.

The latter group is who Sprint is targeting with a new 55+ plan, which offers two lines of unlimited data, talk, and text for $ 70, or $ 35 per line. Given that Verizon’s cheapest Unlimited plan starts at $ 75 per month for one line, and AT&T’s cheapest unlimited plan is $ 65, it’s hard to argue that this isn’t a good deal.

Spoiler Alert: The ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Post-Credit Scene Gets Leaked Online

As Avengers: Infinity War hits American audiences today, the third instalment of the Avengers film franchise has already debuted in Asia. With numerous theories and post-credit explanation videos surfacing rapidly each day on the Internet, the Infinity War clip has leaked online.

BE WARNED SPOILERS LAY AHEAD.

The clip above shows a surprise appearance from sometimes SHIELD leaders Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) as they are driving around New York City after the attacks made by Thanos. As Fury tries to connect to Hawkeye, a car with no driver swerves and crashes in front of them. As the unexplainable disappearances continue, we see a suddenly unmanned helicopter crash into the side of a building. Fury turns to Hill, only to see that she too is fading away. Fury quickly takes out a device to send out a distress signal, but fades away. As the pager-like device falls the the ground, the star logo of Captain Marvel soon appears.

But what does this mean? This will set the stage for the upcoming Captain Marvel film and the still named Avengers 4 film. Brie Larson will debut as the hero — aka Carol Danvers — in her ’90s-set solo movie next year alongside Jackson, before playing a key role in the untitled Avengers 4. Watch it above.

Christina Aguilera Gets an Assist From Melissa McCarthy on Carpool Karaoke

When Christina Aguilera made her Carpool Karaoke debut, she didn’t come alone. The singer stopped by The Late Late Show on Monday night to sing some of her songs with James Corden.

Aguilera settled into the passenger seat and sang parts of some of her biggest hits like “Dirrty” and “Genie in a Bottle” alongside Corden, who managed to keep hold of the steering wheel while Aguilera showed off her impressive skills. When she got to “Fighter,” Corden couldn’t help but ask for a few tips on how to make his voice sound a little like hers. “That’s an angsty thing, you’ve got to get your fighter on,” she explained. Corden wasn’t sure he would be able to mimic her at his next karaoke party, though, because he sounded “like I’ve got something trapped in my throat.”

When the duo moved on to singing Aguilera’s 2002 single “Dirrty,” Aguilera revealed her secret weapon—Melissa McCarthy. The actress and comedian appeared in the back seat to deliver a fierce take on Redman’s featured rap, which appeared in the original song.

“You two know each other. You’ve known each other a while, yes?” Corden asked the two stars.

“We’ve known each other a while,” McCarthy said, nodding. “We did a picture together — Life of the Party.”

“Which we obviously are,” Aguilera added. No arguments here.

Congrats! Michelle Williams Gets Engaged To Pastor Chad Johnson

Michelle Williams and her longtime beau Chad Johnson announced their engagement to the world on Thursday!

Williams and Johnson spoke exclusively to People Magazine about their love story–revealing they’ve actually been secretly engaged for over a month.

“We could not contain this any longer!” Williams said to the outlet, clearly tinged with excitement!

The pair revealed that they got engaged on March 21 in Pebble Beach, California, almost a year after they first met. They plan to get married later this summer.

In March of 2017, the two were guests at a spiritual retreat in Arizona, run by Johnson. Johnson, 40, is a pastor and life coach who also serves as the chaplain for the Pittsburgh Steelers and L.A. Dodgers.

In a recent interview with “The Real” Williams, 37, shared that she was in the midst of a depression and had just ended a relationship prior to meeting her now-fiancee.

“I was in a horrible, dark place,” Williams said, 37. “I just needed to go somewhere where I could get a message of hope and restoration, rejuvenation — get connected to God.”

The two instantly connected, and remained in contact after Johnson’ close friend encouraged they keep in touch. But, a flirty text from Johnson almost ended the romance before it even began.

“I tried to roll in with some mac daddy game — and I tried to flirt a little bit and said something like, ‘How about you and I connect sometime?’ And right away, she texted right back with one word and six question marks behind it: ‘Connect??????’” Johnson said. “I thought she had dissed me. So I was embarrassed, and I didn’t reach back out to her because I thought I’d ruined the friendship.”

However, a week later Williams sent Johnson a DM, responding to an Instagram story Johnson posted him with his nephews.

“The rest is history,” Johnson said. Their texts morphed into calls and spending quality time together. The two went on to share their first kiss last July while in the Dominican Republic for a wedding. There Johnson revealed his true intentions for Williams.

“I told her, ‘I’ve been looking. I don’t want to look anymore. I’m done. My search is over,’” Johnson recalls of the magical moment.

“What kept drawing me and drawing me at first was I felt like I could be myself,” says Williams, who pointed out that Johnson refers to her by her birth name. “My first name is Tenitra; my middle name is Michelle. I felt like I could be Tenitra: just ratchet, I didn’t have to have on any makeup, if I had to have on my hair bonnet — he just made me feel very safe in being myself.”

Johnson planned the whole proposal secretly–earlier in March he flew to her hometown of Rockford, Illinois to ask for her family’s blessing and recorded the whole affair.

A few weeks later the two were enjoying time together in Pebble Beach when Johnson brought up their first failed text exchange.

“We were replaying the whole text message, recreating the moment,” Johnson says. “I was like, ‘Hey, what about if you and me connected?’ She sent me back a text saying, ‘I’ll check my availability.’ And I signaled over to the waiter, and she brought out the iPad and played the video of me being on the proposal tour.”

“I started weeping and wailing when I see all these special people,” Williams said after she watched the video of Johnson’s video with her family. “Towards the end of the video, something in my head said, ‘Pull yourself together! He’s about to propose! Stop all this crying!

Johnson presented Williams with a 5-carat diamond from  L.A. jeweler Denis Mahgerefteh.  “I was just losing it!” Williams said.

Both hope that their interracial love story inspires.

“I’m white, she’s black,” says Johnson. “What a special time for our relationship to be on display in that respect with the tension in the world and in our country.”

As far as whether Williams’ band mates make an appearance, the answer is definitely.

“We’re wanting all of our friends and family to be there. So it’s looking good!”

Congrats to the lovebirds!

Orlando Brown Gets Arrested And Shackled By Bounty Hunters

Orlando Brown 

This is so sad. Former Disney/”That’s So Raven” star Orlando Brown got busted for and outstanding warrant by bounty hunters. They found him in some man’s house in his underwear.

The footage, obtained by TMZ, is from a raid by “Lucky the Bounty Hunter” outfit. It went down in Las Vegas around 6:30am this morning (04-13-18). So yes, Friday the 13th was definitely unlucky for dude. Anyway, it starts with Lucky and his team trying to enter, but getting pushback from the homeowner, who claims they have no legal right

Here’s more from TMZ:

Lucky tells us he had legal paperwork and warrants so they were allowed to enter the home and look for Orlando … so they made it happen by force. After an intense search, they found Brown hiding in a bedroom closet in a t-shirt and boxers and made the arrest.

As we reported … a judge issued a warrant for Brown when he failed to appear in court last month for another case — for allegedly striking his girlfriend last year in Torrance. The owner of the Vegas home tells us he was letting Brown stay there as a favor for a music producer neighbor, but he got concerned about harboring Brown when his fiancee showed up Thursday night … saying he was a fugitive.

The homeowner’s pissed too … he believes his home was entered unlawfully and claims his door was damaged and his shoulder was injured. He plans on contacting authorities soon about the raid to see if his rights were violated.

Check out the footage of the arrest above and below. It’s sad and harrowing. He’s treated like an animal by the bounty hunters. We almost feel sorry for him, but he’s responsible for putting himself in this mess.

Here’s what we reported about that arrest warrant on March 22 …

*Former Disney star Orlando Brown is wanted by police after failing to show for court, reports TMZ.

Court sources say the former “That’s So Raven” star bailed on his scheduled court hearing Wednesday, so the judge issued a bench warrant for his arrest.

Brown’s hearing was for his arrest in January, when a family dispute led cops to discover there was a second active warrant for him, for allegedly striking his girlfriend last year in Torrance.

That arrest resulted in his infamous smiling mug shot.

Former Diplomat Susan Rice Gets A Seat on Netflix’s Board

Woman of Power and former ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice will join the board of Netflix, the company announced.

“I am thrilled to be joining the board of directors of Netflix, a cutting-edge company whose leadership, high-quality productions, and unique culture I deeply admire,” said Rice.

Rice, 53, served under two presidents—first with the Bill Clinton administration from 1993 to 2007 and under President Barack Obama who appointed her as the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., making her the second youngest person and first African American woman to represent America at the U.N.

Rice began her career at Intellibridge as managing director before joining the Brookings Institute as a management consultant focused on U.S. foreign policy, national security issues, and global poverty. Rice left the Brookings Institute in 2008 to serve as then-candidate Barack Obama’s foreign policy advisor.

A contributing editor at The New York Times, Rice currently serves as Distinguished Visiting Research Fellow at American University’s School of International Service and as a non-resident senior fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

“We are delighted to welcome Ambassador Rice to the Netflix board,” said Netflix co-founder and CEO Reed Hastings. “For decades, she has tackled difficult, complex global issues with intelligence, integrity and insight and we look forward to benefiting from her experience and wisdom.”

While Michael B. Jordan announced just a week after the Oscars that he would be adopting the “inclusion rider,” Hastings, whose company is heralded as a prime example of diversity in broadcast programming said his company has no interest in doing such a thing.

Rice’s appointment comes in a month that has seen a number black women take board level roles in some of the world’s largest organizations. Etsy added Edith W. Cooper to its board. Richelle Parham also joined Best Buy’s board of directors and Intel added medical doctor Risa Lavizzo-Mourey to its board.

Rice previously held positions as U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs and as a Special Assistant to President Bill Clinton, as Senior Director, and Director of the National Security Council staff.

From 2009 to 2013, Rice served as U.S. Permanent Representative to the UN and as a cabinet member. In 2013, Rice directed the National Security Council staff, where she chaired the Cabinet-level National Security Principals committee providing daily national security briefings to President Obama. She was responsible for the formulation, coordination, and implementation of all aspects of the administration’s foreign and national security policy, intelligence and military efforts.

A Washington native, Rice is married to Ian Cameron, and they have two children.

Trump Gets the National Security Adviser McMaster Tried to Prevent

Florian Gaertner/Getty

H.R. McMaster went into Donald Trump’s White House an unexpected, out-of-place fit whom his security-field allies hoped would restrain the president. He exits it without an active military career and with his long-cultivated reputation for integrity tarnished by his tumultuous year working for Trump.

And McMaster turns his job over to a right-wing foreign policy expert considered all but bloodthirsty and eager to encourage Trump’s most hawkish instincts—exactly the sort of figure McMaster’s many allies in defense circles feared would rapidly emerge in the wake of McMaster’s departure.

Late Thursday afternoon, Trump finally pushed McMaster out, the culmination of an agonizing few weeks of humiliating leaks that the Army three-star general was a dead man walking.

The Note: Democrats’ ‘big tent’ gets big test in Illinois

The TAKE with Rick Klein

In this year of political turmoil — one that figures to be defined by the opposition to President Donald Trump — the first congressional incumbent to go down could well be a Democrat.

Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-Ill., is in real danger of losing the nomination for his own seat in Tuesday’s Illinois primary.

Lipinski is a self-described “big tent party” Democrat who opposes abortion rights and didn’t support Obamacare or even President Barack Obama’s reelection. Marie Newman’s primary challenge has united outside groups like NARAL with some Obama campaign veterans and Sen. Bernie Sanders’ political operation — while isolating the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.

If Newman wins, cue the analyses of Democratic disarray and — to again quote Lipinski — whether there’s a “tea party of the left” set to rock politics — right?

Any incumbent losing a primary is a big deal. But this seat is almost certainly safely in…

Ivy League Doctor Gets 4 Years in Prison for Insys Opioid Kickbacks

A Rhode Island doctor who took kickbacks from Insys Therapeutics Inc. officials for prescribing the company’s highly addictive liquid version of the opioid painkiller Fentanyl was sentenced to more than four years in prison.

Jerrold Rosenberg, who lost his medical license and was ousted from his post as a Brown University professor, pleaded guilty to taking more than $ 188,000 in kickbacks disguised as speaker fees and creating false patient records to dupe insurers into covering Insys’s Subsys pain medication.

“You in effect sold your medical license to a pharmaceutical company,” U.S. District Judge John J. McConnell Jr. said Friday in federal court. “That’s intolerable.” The judge sentenced him to 51 months and ordered restitution of $ 754,000.

Rosenberg is the fourth doctor jailed over Insys bribes following a federal probe that resulted in the indictment of billionaire founder and Chief Executive Officer John Kapoor and six other executives. The group was charged with orchestrating an elaborate scheme to bribe doctors and defraud health-care providers.

Federal prosecutors told the court Rosenberg ignored and bullied patients who resisted staying on the powerful pain-killing spray. At least one of Rosenberg’s patients suffered an overdose and was “near death” as a result of his wrongdoing, the government said in court filings.

‘Grave Betrayal’

Rosenberg’s son was an Insys sales representative for a year and made “substantial commissions” from his father’s willingness to prescribe the drug, according to prosecutors. The son wasn’t charged in the case.

“The doctor’s conduct showed that he set his financial gain above his patients’ interests,” prosecutors said. “It represented a grave betrayal of the duty every physician owes to his or her patients.”

In a seven-page statement to the court, Rosenberg, 63, recounted his medical career and apologized for his crimes. “I have let a lot of people down including myself,” the doctor said. “I committed errors in judgment and allowed my integrity to be compromised.”

In February, Michigan pain-clinic doctor Gavin Awerbuch was sentenced to more than two years in prison after admitting he took sham speaker fees from Insys for prescribing Subsys for no legitimate medical purpose.

Alabama pain clinic doctor John Couch was sentenced last year to 20 years for racketeering after a jury found he took kickbacks for prescribing Subsys. Couch’s partner, Xiulu Ruan, also was sentenced to 21 years in prison for his role in the scheme.

The government contends that when Kapoor saw the bribes were generating more Subsys sales, he pumped more money into speakers’ fees. Prosecutors claim that Kapoor “tightly controlled” the scheme.

Kapoor, who is facing racketeering and conspiracy charges, is slated to go to trial in 2019. He and the other former Insys executives have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The cases are U.S. v. Rosenberg, 17-00009, U.S. District Court, Rhode Island, and U.S. v. Babich, 16-cr-10343, U.S. District Court, Massachusetts.
