Jessica Simpson Welcomes Baby #3!

She's here! After months of swollen ankles, excessive weight gain, and what seemed like the most torturous pregnancy, Jessica Simpson's baby girl has finally arrived. Jessica, 38 and husband, Eric Johnson, welcomed baby number three, Birdie Mae, yesterday, weighing in at 10lbs., 13oz. She joins sister Maxwell, almost 7 and brother, Ace, 5. This pregnancy came as a surprise to fans when the singer/mogul announced the news via her children in August. She struggled a lot this round, even seeking advice from fans on Instagram as to how to handle her swollen ankles and resorted to cupping for relief. She celebrated her baby shower with family and friends where the theme was all about Birdie leading onlookers to believe this was the chosen moniker. We wish the family all the best and cannot wait to see the new family of five in all of their glory!

Kristoff St. John's Cause of Death Revealed!

When "The Young & the Restless" star, Kristoff St.John unexpectedly passed away on February 3rd, many assumed it was self-inflicted. The soap actor had never quite been the same since his son died in 2014 by suicide after battling mental illness. Now, we have all of the answers we have waited over a month for. The 52-year-old's actual cause of death was heart disease as well as an accidental alcohol overdose, according to the coroner and is being ruled an accident. Several former Y&R co-stars will be returning to the show for an official sendoff to St.John at the end of April, including Shemar Moore. We hope he is finally at peace and he and Julian are reunited though still very saddened at this tragic loss.

Did Your Fave Netflix Show Get the Boot?

It always seems when your favorite shows get cancelled, they may find second life on Netflix of possibly Hulu. Sadly, even subscription services need a fanbase in order to keep shows in rotation and when numbers drop, executives have to make some serious decisions...and cuts viewers may not always be in favor of. Today, it was announced the 'One Day At a Time' revival would be leaving after season three.Though the show was beloved and groundbreaking, even getting this third season based on a Twitter campaign, there just aren't enough viewers to make a fourth season worth the money. That being said, the show will be shopped around to other networks and it could find new life on Amazon Prime, Hulu, or a cable network. But, that is not the only show Netflix has had to drop the axe on. Here are some more shows not seeing another season:

-The Get Down
-Haters Back Off!
-The Punisher
-Jessica Jones
-Friends From College
-Nightflyers

And there may be more to come as we are only in the third month of 2019. We will just have to keep waiting and watching. Fortunately, the Disney streaming service will be up and running at some point this year so we have that to look forward to. How do you feel about the ODAT cancellation? Do you think it will find a home elsewhere? I am optimistic for the stellar cast and story lines, especially after being a fan of the original. All the best to them and if nothing else, they brought a lot of awareness to a variety of subjects needing to be addressed.

'Married At First Sight' Shocker!

photo courtesy of mylifetime.com
Who watched 'Married At First Sight' last night? If you have yet to watch the latest episode and you do not want any spoilers, do not read any further. So, the couples all met for a mini-moon as decision day is coming up super soon. This means the four couples- Jasmine/Will, Keith/Kristine, Luke/Kate, and AJ/Stephanie- must decide if they will stay married or get a divorce. But, Kate has been keeping a secret she could no longer hide any longer. It has been no secret she and Luke have not been on the same page since they met on their wedding day. He was admittedly not attracted to her and even said he felt repulsed and dead inside upon kissing her. He even claimed she had an alcohol problem when meeting with Dr. Pepper so this has not been boding well. When we learned she would be revealing a secret on the latest episode, everyone wondered what it would be. I thought she would be revealing she and Luke had privately decided they would get divorced and did not need to wait until decision day. Or maybe he had come out to her as many on social media believe his real problem is he is gay hence his intimacy issues. But nooooooo, it was even much more jaw-dropping than anyone could have even suspected or imagined.

Kate phoned Dr. Pepper to tell her, even though Luke had told her not to tell any of the experts about this, the couple has actually been having sex since they got married. It has only been a handful of times but every time, post-coitus, Luke leaves the room for a few hours to collect himself. So, this leaves Kate perplexed and confused so now she is very lost. It explains why she has been holding on to this marriage for dear life because there is so much more going on than we ever knew. Next week, she tells Luke about sharing their sex life with Dr. Pepper and he feels extremely betrayed. It is not like she did not keep up the facade for the other wives; she told Dr. Pepper. You can watch 'Married At First Sight' on Lifetime every Tuesday night and let us know why you think Luke feels such shame after sex!

Eden Marryshow Makes His Dreams Come True With the Release of BRUCE!!!!



When I met Eden Marryshow ("Nurse Jackie") almost a decade ago in acting class, I knew he had what it took to become a super successful actor. Basically, he had what it took to do whatever he put his mind to. Not only was he amazingly talented but when he stepped out of his five-minute roles, he was one of the nicest men I had ever met in my life. Charming, considerate, kind, caring, and handsome to boot. How do men like that exist? They do and I was set to team up with him for a scene in class when I left. We both had dreams, we were both hard workers, and now, all of his hard work is paying off with the national theatrical release of his film "BRUCE!!!!" Not only does he star in the film, which revolves about a broke ass scam artist who finds his heart in the midst of one of his biggest scams, but he also directed it, garnering the ABFF Grand Jury Prize for Best Director. 

Co-starring Jason Tottenham ("Quantico") and Mle' Chester ("Vinyl"), the film will be released on a national basis this Friday, March 15th in 17 states/ 24 cities at AMC cinemas. This is the movie to go see for your Friday night entertainment and not because Marryshow is an amazing person but because this film, just from the trailer alone, will leave you crying laughing. Why? Because we all know a Bruce. We have all met a Bruce. You may even be a Bruce. To find out where you can catch the movie and to learn more about, go to https://www.brucethefilm.com/. Remember, hard work, dedication, passion, and love (and driving around SXSW in a Bruce covered van) can make all of your dreams come true! See you in the theater!

Meet the New 'RHONY' Housewife, Barbara Kavovit!

It is always an adjustment when a new housewife comes along. Sometimes, it is for the good (looking at you, Jackie Goldschneider) and sometimes, it is for the bad (Carlton Gebbia, Peggy what's her name from last season of RHOC). With the departure of longtime housewife, Carole Radziwill, 'RHONY' needed someone new and why not bring in a friend of Luann de Lesseps since she is riding on the success of her cabaret show. Enter Barbara Kavovit, whom we last saw in season nine when she was telling Carole how Luann would rather go through with the marriage to Tom then call it off and be embarrassed. Basically, she was seemingly throwing her friend and her happiness under the bus, dreading a sham wedding but was still going for support. It all led to more Tom fodder in the Berkshires that holiday. But now, we will get to see Kavovit in a new light, as more than just a concerned wedding guest. 

She is friends with both Luann and Dorinda, so maybe she is the one who will bring them back together this season. She's a construction girl so she knows how to build and fix things, which is exactly what we need on this show. Someone as tough and strong as Bethenny and an author, to boot. But, let's face it: you have to be an entrepreneur or a writer or both to be on this show. One thing we do know for sure is she is already going at it with OG, Ramona Singer who mocked Barbara. She basically insinuated she has no idea what position on the show Kavovit will hold but the new addition was not bothered. She called out Singer as being "nasty " and "condescending." We already like her. Season 11 of 'RHONY' premieres tomorrow night on Bravo at 9pm.

Rob Thomas Makes Waves With New Single- 4th Solo Album on the Way!

It has been roughly a year since Rob Thomas let fans know new music was on the horizon and gave everyone a glimpse inside of the studio. It seemed fast-paced and exciting; whatever it was, we were ready for the ride. Fast forward to early February and a countdown began via Rob's Instagram story, leading to 2/20 when, at midnight, both the lead single and video from his fourth solo album, would be released. "One Less Day (Dying Young)" off of 'Chip Tooth Smile' came right at 12am on the 20th and this is the anthem for all of those who grew up listening to Rob as both the front man for Matchbox Twenty but also as a solo artist. It was always said that only the good die young and while this may be a very true statement, it can be a struggle not only getting older but constantly watching peers around us vanish in the blink of an eye. It started in high school and now, we are in our 30's, 40's, and beyond; it never stops and it never gets easier. 

What Thomas, now 47, is saying with his new single, is we are among the lucky the older we get. Though it may be hard watching the years pass by and not being technically "young," we are not missing out on life and so many experiences peers and family so sadly never go to partake in. Dying old may be the best blessing of all. Just because we are an age we do not like, we do not have to feel it or look it or even act it. Youth is in the eye of the beholder and Rob has taken us to a youthful church by saying it is okay to get old and not die young. Tell your story and be proud. His album is available for pre-sale and will be released on the 26th of April while tickets for his tour go on sale tomorrow, March 1st! Definitely check it out at www.robthomasmusic.com.
