Oscar Night! Snafu's and Winners!

Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 89th Annual Academy Awards and the show was not without its issues. The opening was amazing; in my opinion, Justin Timberlake killed it with "Can't Stop the Feeling" from "Trolls" and set the tone for what was to be a fun and exciting night. Kimmel also kept the running joke alive about a feud between he and Matt Damon, which only enhanced the evening. However, the night had some major issues and it totally dominated the event. 

First off, like any good "In Memoriam," some were forgotten while others were actually killed off. A woman who works behind the scenes was put in the tribute video when in fact, she is actually alive and well. And we cannot forget how the night ended; definitely as exciting as it opened but in a different way. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway came out to announce the Oscar for Best Film and they proclaimed "La La Land" to be the winner. wasn't. Not even a tie. Apparently, the presenters were handed Emma Stone's winning envelope by accident and read that over the actual winner, which was "Moonlight." It was a Steve Harvey moment to say the least and now, everyone is also commenting on last year's Best Actress winner, Brie Larson, not applauding for Casey Affleck when he won for Best Actor.

A few positives were the jabs that Kimmel took at President Donald Trump and the idea of unity within the Hollywood community. It was also hilarious and heartwarming when Kimmel talked about the "overrated actress," Meryl Streep and she then received a standing ovation. It was believed that she should just have won in every category, even if she was not nominated. Here is a list of winners, ICYMI!

  • Best Supporting Actor: Mahershala Ali (Moonlight)
  • Best Supporting Actress: Viola Davis (Fences)
  • Best Actor: Casey Affleck (Manchester By the Sea)
  • Best Actress: Emma Stone (La La Land)
  • Best Animated Feature: Zootopia
  • Best Score: La La Land
  • Best Song: City of Stars (La La Land)
  • Best Original Screenplay: Manchester By the Sea
  • Best Director: Damien Chazelle (La La Land)
  • Best Film: NOT La La Land! Moonlight!
Congrats to all the winners and all the nominees. This is a huge night for everyone in Hollywood and there were some killer performances so it must have been very close and very hard. To be honest, I was shocked that Ryan Gosling lost! But, maybe next year!

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
