Since 'The Act' debuted on Hulu, we have been waiting impatiently for the Emmy nominations. In our minds, from the premiere episode, Patricia Arquette and Joey King were Emmy musts as was the limited series. Addicting and it gave you all of the feels, it was gaining award season buzz early on so we were beyond elated today to hear the nominations. Joey King (Gypsy Rose Blanchard) was nominated for Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Television Movie for her role in 'The Act' as the accomplice to her mother's murder after being a victim of munchausen by proxy. She will go up against her 'The Act' mother/co-star, Patricia Arquette for her highly-acclaimed role in 'Escape at Dannemora'; Amy Adams in 'Sharp Objects'; Niecy Nash in 'When They See Us'; Michelle Williams in 'Fosse/Verdon'; and Aunjanue Ellis in 'When They See Us.'

But, Arquette is a double threat, gaining another nomination for Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Television Movie for her portrayal of DeeDee Blanchard. She is up against the likes of Patricia Clarkson and Vera Farmiga. However, there were two males sadly left out. Let's finish off with 'The Act,' which did not even get a nod for Best Limited Series. The Emmy committee will be hearing from us! Calum Worthy gave one of the best performances we have seen in years by a young male actor in his portrayal of Nick Godejohn, Gypsy Rose's online lover, whom she convinced to kill her mother then run off with her. He was so convincing as an autistic lovesick boy with multiple personalities was beyond award-worthy and this is one of the biggest mistakes ever! The next mistake is not giving Miss Coco Peru aka Clinton Leupp, a guest starring

nod for her spot on 'Will and Grace' as Miss Coco (she was there twice, FYI). 


So, as we recover from the slaps in the face, we are ecstatic for the good news. The 71st Emmy Awards will be handed out on September 22nd on FOX with possibly no host. Congrats to all of the nominees, which you can read about right here.

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of imdb.com 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 amazon.com 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? Get ready to catch up with our fave reality celesbians! - Whitney Mixter : the player of the series, she may have hooked up with almost every member of the cast. But,
