    In the video, posted to Handler’s Twitter account, comedian Fortune Feimster wears a wig in an attempt to resemble Sanders as she runs through an exaggerated beauty routine. “I used to not know what foundation was, but our great president was kind enough to take me to a Sephora, and he said to the boy, ‘Hey, you see that fella over there? Make him a woman,'” Feimster-as-Sanders says in one of many digs at the press secretary’s looks in the short clip.
  • JFK the junkie: The Crown's unflattering portrayal of the 35th president as a jealous, [tr]

    He is perhaps the most portrayed president in American history. But fans of The Crown can expect to see a different side of John F. Kennedy when he appears in the show's second season. On the surface, Micheal C. Hall's Kennedy may seem ever the charming and inspiring leader, underneath the facade is a jealous, controlling husband and a high functioning drug addict. The Netflix drama, which focuses on the lives of the British royals, pulls no punches as it portrays JFK as a scheming conniver who is prone to sudden outbursts when he away from the public's gaze.

    After facing increasing pressure to take some form of action, Netflix has fired The Ranch star Danny Masterson, effective immediately. The actor stands accused of raping four women in the early 2000s; the Los Angeles County District Attorney and Los Angeles Police Department continue to investigate the claims. “As a result of ongoing discussions, Netflix and the producers have written Danny Masterson out of The Ranch,” a Netflix spokesperson tells TVLine. “[Monday] was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him.”... Masterson also serves as an exec producer on The Ranch, although there’s...
  • Chelsea Handler Calls Huckabee Sanders a ‘Harlot’ With ‘Summer Whore Lipstick All Over Her Face’

    Liberal comedian Chelsea Handler attacked Sarah Huckabee Sanders' appearance on her weekly Netflix show, calling the White House press secretary a "harlot" who wears "summer whore lipstick." The clip, flagged by the conservative Media Research Center, is from the Dec. 1 episode of "Chelsea," titled "Dinner Party: Scandalous," and shows Handler interviewing Lanny Davis, a lawyer and former special counsel to President Bill Clinton. "When somebody from the Trump White House stands at the lectern and tells us that black is white—" Davis said before Handler cut him off. "That harlot that they are dressing up and trolloping out every...

    Just finished up Season 6 over the Thanksgiving week. Generally, I thought the characters were interesting and the clash of culture also made for interesting story telling. My only criticism would be all the stupid things the Sheriff's department did in Season 5. Nonetheless; great series and the timing of it coming to a close was just about right. (Unlike "Lost")

    Maura Pfefferman’s journey has come to a premature end. Jeffrey Tambor has announced that he will not return to Transparent for its upcoming fifth season. He issued the following statement to our sister site Deadline: Playing Maura Pfefferman on Transparent has been one of the greatest privileges and creative experiences of my life. What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago. I’ve already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea...

    Los Angeles Daily News ^ | November 17, 2017 | Rob Lowman
    ...For “Godless,” executive producers Casey Silver and Steven Soderbergh took Scott Frank’s screenplay, which was originally written as a film, and expanded it into a seven-part limited series for Netflix. The series is a wild ride, an old-fashioned Western with a contemporary edge. It carries the sweep and breadth of a grand tale with the larger-than-life ornery characters you expect to find living and dying in that rugged, lonely land... The entire series – which plays like a seven-hour movie – was directed by Scott Frank from his screenplay. He keeps the tension throughout without over-hyping scenes. Death is bad...

    A probe carried out by The Old Vic theater in London into their former artistic director Kevin Spacey has found over 20 testimonies of inappropriate sexual behavior. “This investigation concluded that there have been 20 personal allegations of incidents relating to The Old Vic ranging from 1995 to 2013, with the majority [all but two] falling before 2009,” the theater said in a statement.

    One woman, who filed her accusation in 2004 to the Los Angeles Police Department, alleged that Masterson, 41, raped her while she was “passed out.” When she reportedly came to and realized what was happening, she claimed Masterson choked her until she passed out again. Both she and the actor were members of the Church of Scientology. Three other women, also church members, reported their claims directly to the Church of Scientology. The LAPD’s case was squashed at the time, however, after 50 Scientologists wrote affidavits denouncing the woman’s story, the Huffington Post reported.

    In what appears to be an impressive piece of corporate spin, Netflix announced Monday that it was cancelling House of Cards, the series starring Kevin Spacey, the two-time Oscar winner who is facing numerous allegations of sexual misconduct, including with a 14 year-old boy some 30 years ago. The announcement makes it appear as though Netflix is pro-actively severing ties with the embattled Spacey, who has not denied he made an aggressive sexual advance on a 14 year-old Anthony Rapp. A deeper look at the Netflix announcement actually reveals that this “cancellation announcement” might be the streaming company’s way of...

    "Blade Runner 2049” was supposed to be a hit. The film, one of the most anticipated of the year, seemed to have all the necessary ingredients with two popular leading men and an original that has gained cult status since its release in 1982. But it has not been the box office hit the industry hoped for, despite being showered with rave reviews. Studios blamed the dismal box office performance of a number of big-budget blockbuster films this summer on negative reviews from critics and Rotten Tomatoes. The film review aggregator, owned by Comcast Corp.-owned CMCSA, +0.87% Fandango, has been...

An ABC source with knowledge of the situation said that the cuts will hit upward of 40 of its employees on the East Coast and still more out west. Multiple people at ABC told Splinter that there is a widespread belief at the network that the belt-tightening could be tied...
