The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 9 Teaser: Bring Bonnie Back!

The Vampire Diaries is taking Thanksgiving off and will next air a new episode on Thursday, December 4.

This is sad news, but also welcome news… because we have A LOT to digest following The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 8.

We learned this week that Liv and Luke are next in line to head up the Gemini Coven. Except they have to merge on their upcoming 22nd birthday, leaving the weaker of the witches dead.

Also, Jo is their sister! She saved them from a murderous Kai back in 1994 and left her magic in a dagger outside the family’s home in Portland.

This is the same home Damon found himself in, opposite Kai’s father, who was so distressed by the possibility of his son returning and taking all of Jo’s powers that he actually tried to kill Jo!

In 1994, meanwhile, Kai found his sister’s discarded dagger, took its magic, stabbed Bonnie and left her all alone.

So, as teased in the preview above, everyone is focused on a singular mission on The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 9: bringing Bonnie back home.

How will they go about doing it?

Check out The CW promo and then watch The Vampire Diaries online via this video in order to stay current:

Mockingjay Movie Reviews: Are the Odds Ever in its Favor?

According to Donald Sutherland, Jennifer Lawrence is akin to Jesus Christ.

That’s mighty high praise for the star of The Hunger Games franchise.

But is The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 worthy of the same praise? What are critics around the country saying about this wildly anticipated blockbuster? Let’s find out…

Julianne Moore as President Coin


This is our first look at Julianne Moore in Mockingjay. It’s safe to say we’re excited for the film.

Mockingjay – Part 1, however well done, can’t compete with the first two films, although it sets up what should be its stunning ending well enough. – Tom Long

If Mockingjay – Part 1 is quieter and less flashy than its predecessors, that doesn’t make it less satisfying. – Steven Rea

Lawrence delivers on what dramatic beats half a novel affords him. You just wish there were more of them and that they provided a more complete, more satisfying story arc. – Kenneth Turan

Katniss’ concern for the anti-sexy Peeta results in her spending quite a bit of the movie in po-faced mopery. – Kurt Loder

Mockingjay – Part 1 is just big enough of a story that, even as a two-parter, the film feels substantial and justifiably halved. There’s simply too much to digest as all the pieces are put into place and the real games are set to begin. – Kirk Baird

This is the “Empire Strikes Back” of the series, with the heroes constantly on defense – running, hiding, planning, hoping. - Rob Thomas

Jennifer Lawrence is as good as always and gets a few key scenes to play up the emotional aspect of what’s occurring.- Jim Judy

Reign Season 2 Episode 8 Recap: The Reign of Terror

On Reign Season 2 Episode 8, tensions escalate between Mary and Francis as Vatican inquisitors start to perform some truly barbaric acts on Protestant suspects.

When Reign Season 2 Episode 8 gets underway, a man who looks like a Cardinal decides to cut off the lips of those who lie in this new reign of terror.

Mary is astonished and repulsed by Francis’ actions and their consequences. Bash says if Francis was trying to alienate Mary, well, then good job.

Francis rejects Narcisse’s threat to take Mary’s head and doubles down on his desire to keep her safe (or so he says), no matter what fallout may arise.

Jacob, a Protestant leader, likes what he heard about Francis sending a letter to the Pope to call back his men, and wants Conde to appeal to the King.

Will his prayers fall upon deaf ears? As you know if you watch Reign online, these things are complicated and forever intertwined with other questions.

Follow the above link to see the installment for yourself, and prepare for many twists and turns along the way as the CW drama winds down its midseason run.

Iggy Azalea-Eminem Feud Heats Up Following "Old Man" Diss on Twitter!

Iggy Azalea is no stranger to feuds.

The Iggy-Snoop Dogg beef made headlines last month, with the Aussie raptress eventually “winning” by forcing an apology from the Doggfather.

Prior to that, Iggy feuded with Nicki Minaj, and while the First Ladies of Hip Hop have occasionally shown love to one another in public, sources say that situation is unlikely to ever be resolved.

Considering how man beefs she’s been involved with, you may think that Iggy intentionally seeks out drama, when in reality, she seems to simply be a favorite target for A-list emcees.

  • It's Iggy Azalea!
  • Eminem Pic

Her latest public throwdown is no different, as Iggy finds herself in the position of responding to some shocking comments from a hip hop icon:

Eminem seems to be using controversy to promote his new mixtape, Shady XV. Last week, Em rapped about punching Lana Del Rey during a freestyle, and this week he’s set his sights on Iggy-Ig.

A recently released track on Shady XV contains the following lyrics:

“So what’s it gonna be? / Put that sh-t away, Iggy / You gonna blow a rape whistle on me?”

Eminem’s supporters have pointed out that he’s made a career out of targeting potentially offensive threats and insults toward other artists through his Slim Shady persona.

Many feel, however, that this time Em has simply gone too far, and his critics have pointed out that the sort of lyrics that may have gone unnoticed in 1999 are simply not acceptable in 2014 – particularly now that Mr. Mathers is 42 and has a daughter in college.

Iggy brought up the topic of Em’s age (and the fact that he remains an influential Rap God to many young men) when she responded to his controversial verse on Twitter:

“I’m bored of old men threatening young women as entertainment trend,” Iggy tweeted. “It’s especially awkward because my 14 year old brother is the biggest Eminem fan and now the artist he admired says he wants to rape me. Nice!”

Of course, the grand hip hop tradition requires that artists settle their differences in song form, and the fact that I-G-G-Y has never written a response track (despite her many feuds) is seen by many as further evidence that Iggy doesn’t write her own rhymes.

But that’s a conversation for another time…

Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift


Taylor Swift wrote a song titled “Bad Blood” about an enemy in the music business. We’re pretty sure the subject was Katy Perry.

Tori Spelling: Pushed By Friends to Divorce Dean McDermott! Will She?

While their reps insist that Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are still together, new reports suggest that they are barely on speaking terms and headed for a split.

It’s hard to know what to believe this point, given the unreliability of most “sources” online, and the fact that “still together” doesn’t really tell us a whole lot either.

According to a new report, however, she’s filled out divorce papers and is considering pulling the trigger on the long-rumored split, at the urging of friends.

  • McDermott
  • Tori Spelling on the Phone

This comes on the heels of Dean McDermott quitting their reality show True Tori and basically admitting he’s disgusted by the charade that is their life.

If he’s quitting True Tori, is that any different than quitting Tori Spelling?

In case he wasn’t clear enough on that, he reportedly told her the kids are done filming the Lifetime series along with him in his latest maudlin ultimatum.

So … where does that leave the reeling actress?

Planting stories in Life & Style, it would appear.

“She’s been pushed by some of her closest friends to end the marriage and is finally seeing that as a real option,” says an alleged source, out of nowhere.

Uh oh. Dean McDermott’s obligatory rebuttal?

Conveniently, he’s also reportedly said that Tori Spelling has become an “unfit mother” and shouldn’t be the one to get custody of their kids IF they split up.

Nice to see him using children as pawns.

Really, if you watch True Tori online, it’s hard to find sympathy with either one of these people, although it’s clear Dean wants out and it’s hard to blame him.

Yes, he used to self-complete to Tori on 90210, then banged Tori while married to his first wife, then banged Emily Goodhand when married to Tori.

He’s a depressed, probable alcoholic and uselessly narcissistic individual. At the same time, he’s trapped in a marriage with Tori Spelling. It’s gotta hurt.

Being exploited for ratings and jerked around left and right, regardless of his own problems and contributions to this malaise, is enough to drive a man insane.

Who do you think will leave who, and when? Or will they somehow find a way to keep this nonsense going for the sake of their kids and/or bank accounts?

We're Laughing at You, Not with You Dean

“I feel like I’m a little bit of a laughing stock.” – Dean, in the biggest understatement in the history of human civilization

Kim Kardashian on North West Posing Nude Someday: I’d Be Cool With It!

When the now-famous Kim Kardashian nude Paper magazine photos first hit the web, public opinion was decidedly split.

While the Sir Mix-A-Lots of the world found no cause for complaint, other, more reserved types stated their belief that Kim was setting a bad example for young girls, her own daughter included.

Kim Kardashian and Daughter North

Glee star Naya Rivera slammed Kim online, commenting, “You’re somebody’s mother,” on one of the pics.

While rumors that Kim wanted to pose nude before she gets pregnant again continue to circulate, until very recently, Mrs. Kardashian-West had not spoken out about the relationship between her roles as nude icon and married mom.

Yesterday, Kim was asked in an Australian radio interview how she would feel if her 1-year-old daughter, North West, decided to pose nude in 20 years. Her response is sure to piss off plenty of Kardashian kritics:

“I would support anything she wants to do,” Kim said. “But I don’t do anything to promote anyone else doing it – that’s not even what I’m trying to do.”

Kim went on to say that the pics made her feel “empowered,” after she “gained 500 pounds and looked like a huge slob” when she was pregnant.

Kim Kardashian: Naked for Paper


Kim Kardashian wears nothing but her birthday suit in this photo for the winter 2014 issue of Paper. Looks like she’s lost all that baby weight, huh?

Given her famous ego, we never thought we’d have to say this, but damn, go easy on yourself, Kim!

As for her comments about supporting “anything” North wants to do, well, Kim should know that statements like that often backfire. 

Kids have a way of finding the one thing you won’t support and doing it. In North’s case that would probably mean getting her PhD and taking a low-profile job as a research assistant, or something.

White Collar Season 6 Episode 3 Recap: Variables Outside Our Control

On White Collar Season 6 Episode 3 Thursday night, fans saw a conflicted Neal try to wrap his head around a scam, while Peter worked with Interpol.

In the process, would he put their entire mission at risk?

Picking up where last week left off, White Collar Season 6 Episode 3 saw Neal meet with the Pink Panthers, only to find that Keller is the only one there.

He tells Neal they will be working together on this heist.

If you watch White Collar online, you know this means higher stakes, and when Neal makes the meet, Peter and Diana feel that Keller must have a handler.

Whether they can find out who it is? Another matter.

Keller tells Neal that they must infiltrate Atlas Tech, and wants to use Amy Harris, Executive Assistant to the CEO at the company, to pull off the job.

Neal is apprehensive, but has a narrow window.

He comes up with the plan to have Keller wrongly hit on the single girl, giving Neal the opening to swoop in and gain Amy’s trust – and the access he needs.

Meanwhile Peter IDs and meets Keller’s handler.

Bonding over motherhood, El worries to Diana about Peter and his demanding job. Diana assures her that she has the best kind of partner in Peter.

As Neal and Keller continue their high-wire act con, Mozzie is trying to get into the server room, only to find technology that could be described as archaic.

A floppy disk? Seriously?!

Basically, they have to steal the original, find a way to download it, then put it back. All of which necessitates that Neal will have to use Amy even more.

After an elaborate ploy to do just that, the boss comes back and realizes something is amiss, and Amy unwittingly and cluelessly ends up in the hot seat.

Things are further complicated when Peter leaves Luke alone with the assets, and Luke bails in an attempt to gain upper hand, slipping the disk to Keller.

Keller sells out Neal, who is forced to use Amy yet again, to her chagrin. She then quits and decides to move back to Iowa, disgusted and jaded with life.

And that disk? An algorithm which randomly assigns airports, flights and airlines and another set of numbers that may all relate to transporting items.

The plot thickens …

Is Renee Zellweger planning to marry her boyfriend on New Year’s Eve?

ELLE's 21st Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration
Renee Zellweger has been dating musician Doyle Bramhall II (yes that’s his actual name) for about two years. The two first met in college and reportedly didn’t date back then but kept running into each other over the years until they finally gave in and got togerher. That’s sweet.

Renee plays her personal life pretty close to the vest so we haven’t heard that she’s engaged or anything, but The National Enquirer claims that she’s planning to marry Doyle on New Year’s Eve. The tabloids report that she’s sent out a “save the date” email to 15 close friends she wants to attend the wedding. They also claim that Doyle owes thousands in back child support to his ex wife. Sketchy.

The National Enquirer has learned exclusively that the 45 year-old Oscar winner has gushed to close pals that she plans to wed her beau of two years – rock guitarist Doyle Bramhall II – on New Year’s Eve in Austin, Texas.

The couple chose Austin because it’s where they met as students more than two decades ago, sources said.

“Renee is madly in love with Doyle and wants to close out 2014 by marrying him where they share special memories.

“She sent out ‘save the date’ emails to about 15 friends for New Year’s Eve,” an insider revealed…

Doyle was once addicted to heroin and is involved in a messy legal battle with ex-wife Susannah Melvoin.

The two divorced in 2010, but as the Enquirer has reported, he owes her thousands of dollars in back child support for their two children…

“But Renee swears he’s a stand up guy and that despite his financial problems with his ex wife, he’s never asked her for a dime.

“He told Renee that he’d be happy to sign a prenup.”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, December 1, 2014]

When the Enquirer runs stories on anyone but A list celebrities they tend to be solid. That’s why I believe that Renee probably did send out an email to friends asking them to save the date. It’s very specific too. Is this why she got all that work done on her face, because she’s ready to move into another chapter in her life? (Reese Witherspoon is now clucking her tongue and calling me sexist.) Good for Renee for falling for a non-famous guy. Remember her four month marriage to Kenny Chesney in 2005? I do question Doyle Bramhall II’s inability to pay child support. That would be a big red flag to me. Maybe he just fell on hard times though. I hope for Renee’s sake that Doyle is decent guy beneath that epic hair. I also hope she gets a prenup.

One Direction Poses with Jimmy Kimmel, Stuffed Animals and a Baby: The #CutestSelfieEver?

Back in March, Ellen DeGeneres hosted the Academy Awards and set the record for most Tweeted selfie ever when she posed in the audience with a slew of A-Listers.

Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, meanwhile, the host and a few very handsome guests didn’t attempt to break this record. They attempted to set one of their own.

With the desirable singers of One Direction on board – along with some stuffed animals, kids, pets and bunny ears – Kimmel posed for what he hashtagged as the “#CutestSelfieEver.”

Do you agree with that assessment?

Cutest Selfie Ever?

Earlier in the week, Zayn Mailk, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan were involved in a controversy that none of their fans found remotely adorable.

After Malik fell ill and missed a Today Show interview, Matt Lauer wondered whether Zayn had a drug problem.

Supporters lashed out at Lauer on Twitter, while Malik admitted he was upset by the seemingly random inquiry.

Fortunately, the artist is feeling much better these days, joining his pals to promote their new album and, as seen above, to be totally and utterly precious online.

Where does this celebrity selfie rank when compared to other famous celebrity selfies? Compare, contrast and decide now!

More Duggar Trouble: Petition to Cancel 19 Kids and Counting Reaches Goal of 100,000 Signatures

Back in September, a petition to convince TLC to cancel 19 Kids and Counting was posted on the website Change.org, and began to slowly make the rounds online.

The petition was a response to Michelle Duggar’s involvement in a campaign to repeal an anti-discrimination law. Yes, repeal a law against discrimination.

Say yes to sex, even when you're tired!

Be available. Anyone can fix him lunch, but only one person can meet that physical need of love that he has, and you always need to be available when he calls. – Michelle Duggar


Be available. Anyone can fix him lunch, but only one person can meet that physical need of love that he has, and you always need to be…

The law in question prevents employers and landlords from denying jobs and housing to applicants on the basis of sexual preference. The Duggars? Not fans.

Michelle recorded a robocall claiming the law allowed “males with past child predator convictions” who “claim they are female” to enter women’s bathrooms and locker rooms.

Well, the author of the petition to axe 19 Kids and Counting claims that Michelle’s recording constitutes hate speech, and that TLC is implicitly supporting such beliefs.

Apparently, more than 123,000 people agree with him.

For months, the petition – titled “End LGBTQ Fear Mongering By the Duggars” – languished in obscurity, receiving just 6,000 signatures in its first two months online.  

However, a recent controversy involving Michelle and Jim Bob Duggars’ Facebook page brought a renewed interest in the Duggars’ political beliefs.

It all started when Michelle and Jim Bob asked married couples to submit photos of themselves kissing by posting them on the official Duggars’ Facebook page.

Several hundred did so, only for a number of gay and interracial couples to claim that their pictures were immediately deleted by the Arkansas couple.

The resulting uproar and media attention resulted in the anti-Duggar petition receiving an additional 117,000 signatures in the past four days alone.

Dates Without Chaperones


The Duggar parents often accompany their children on dates in order to maintain their “accountability” and “keep things from going in the wrong direction,” per Jim Bob. The girls are fine with this, as being alone with men puts them in grave “moral danger.” When the parents aren’t available, their older siblings will often tag along, making every date a group date and a family affair.

The Duggars have yet to respond to the campaign to have them taken off the air, but they did say, vaguely, that they will not compromise their values.

Stay tuned, and watch 19 Kids and Counting online to decide for yourself if the Duggars are dangerous or harmless, and tell us below in the comments:

Should TLC cancel the show because of the Duggars’ views?
