Jane the Virgin Season 1 Episode 1: Grade It!

Jane the Virgin centers around… a girl named Jane who is a virgin.

It stars breakout actress Gina Rodriguez as a young women driven to become a teacher and maybe someday a writer, while supporting herself as a new Miami hotel.

She watches telenovelas with her mother and her grandmother and she has a slightly unrealistic view of romance, though it’s one respected and supported her her fiancé, Michael: Jane is going to save herself until marriage.

She has her life mostly mapped out and it’s mostly going very well until she receives some unsettling news:

Jane the Virgin Premiere Scene

During a check-up with her physician, Jane learns she was accidentally artificially inseminated with a specimen meant for someone else. Don’t you just hate it when that happens!

As a result, Jane is faced with the most important decisions she’ll ever make. Will she keep the baby? Where will things possibly go now?!?

It’s as if Jane is now living inside the telenovelas she has always loved. But that’s not where she wants to be.

While many may have been turned off and/or confused by the titled “Jane the Virgin,” we sincerely hope they have the premiere a shot.

Jane the Virgin Season 1 Episode 1 was funny, sentimental, touching, surprising and generally a hoot to watch. And Gina Rodriguez is an absolute star. Remember her name, folks. She’s the real deal.

Did you tune in for the opener? Have you set a series recording for Jane the Virgin on your DVR yet? Go do it!

And then hand out a grade for the opening episode now:

Michael Phelps on DUI Charge: My Bad!

Eighteen-time gold medalist Michael Phelps was arrested for DUI around 2 am on Tuesday morning after being pulled over for going 84 in a 45 MPH zone.

Phelps addressed the incident on Twitter today:

Phelps

“Earlier this morning I was arrested and charged with DUI, excessive speeding and crossing double lane lines,” Phelps tweeted.

“I understand the severity of my actions and take full responsibility. I know these words may not mean much now but I am deeply sorry to everyone I have let down.”

Well, at least he owned up to it, though it’s not like he had much choice.

There’s no word yet on what sort of punishment Phelps can expect to face.

This is not his first DUI arrest, though since the first one occurred more than 10 years ago, it shouldn’t result in a stiffer penalty this time around. Following that incident, Phelps was sentenced to 18 months probation.

Prior to his brush with the law this morning, the Olympian’s most recent scandal was a highly publicized 2009 episode in which Phelps was caught smoking pot at a party on a college campus.  He was quick to apologize following that incident as well.

Phelps is not expected to do any jail time, but does face fines, probation, and the loss of his license.

Ferguson Cop Threatens to "F–king Kill" Protestor

For over a week a now. protests in Ferguson, Missouri over the death of Michael Brown have been making international headlines.

Yesterday, President Obama issued a statement on the situation that somehow seemed to further enrage both sides of the conflict, and as the video below demonstrates, after 11 days of protests, tensions may be running higher than ever:

The clip clearly shows a police officer pointing a rifle at a non-violent protestor and shouting, “I’ll f–king kill you.”

The civilian asks to the officer’s name only to be told, “Go f–k yourself.”

Thankfully, another officer was able defuse the situation before it became violent.

The video – shot by an unknown protestor and uploaded to YouTube earlier today – is just the latest indication that there will be no easy resolution to the unrest in Ferguson, and the ordeal will likely continue to have national ramifications.

Darren Wilson has been identified as the officer who shot Brown, but it is not yet known what sort of punishment he’ll receive. 

National debates on the incident were re-ignited yesterday, when surveillance footage of Brown that shows the 18-year-old stealing cigars from a convenient store was released online.

The theft of the cigars resulted in the shooting death of Brown, and both supporters and critics of the Ferguson police Department have claimed that the video supports their position.

Wade Robson Insists Michael Jackson Raped Him, Wants Estate to Admit GRAPHIC Acts

Michael Jackson’s child molestation accuser, choreographer Wade Robson, has filed new court documents detailing the star’s allegedly sordid acts.

Wade is suing Michael’s estate for a wide variety of sexual acts committed against him, including oral sex, mutual masturbation, and even anal rape.

The documents seek an admission from the estate that from 1990-97, the King of Pop committed many disturbing acts against Robson, then age 7-14.

From the start, the estate has adamantly denied Robson’s allegations.

  • Wade Robson Pic
  • Wade Robson, Michael Jackson

Robson’s attorneys start by asking Jackson’s estate to admit that Jackson “invited Robson and his family to stay at [Jackson’s ranch] in February 1990.”

There, the documents ask the estate to admit Jackson “employed an audible alarm system for his bedroom [and] hung ‘do not disturb’ signs on his bedroom door.”

Inside, the documents ask Jackson’s estate to admit, “sexual activities occurred between [Jackson] and Wade Robson periodically” from 1990-97.”

Those alleged activities include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  • French kissing
  • Showering naked together
  • Fondling of genitals mutally
  • Performing mutual fellatio
  • Viewing pornography
  • Lying on top of each other gyrating genitals together
  • Jackson “putting his hand over Robson’s clothed penis”
  • MJ “putting his hand inside Wade Robson’s underpants”
  • Michael “taking Wade Robson’s hand and putting it over [Jackson’s] clothed penis” and “taking [Robson’s] hand and putting it inside [Jackson’s] underpants”
  • “Rubbing Wade Robson’s penis” and “having Wade Robson rub [Jackson’s] penis”
  • “Licking Wade Robson’s anus while [Jackson] masturbated using lotion”
  • “Penetration of Wade Robson’s anus with [Jackson’s] penis”

MJ forced Robson to be quiet, he claims, saying “that if anyone were to ever find out about their sexual activities, both of their careers would be over.”

Wade famously denied all such allegations levied against Jackson during his child molestation trial, serving as a key witness for MJ against another boy’s claims.

The estate is asking a Los Angeles judge to reject Robson‘s molestation claim against the late singer because he supposedly waited too long to file.

Robson says to have only remembered that Michael Jackson molested him after having two “breakdowns” which resulted in him seeking intensive therapy.

The judge hasn’t yet ruled on whether or not Robson’s case will be allowed to proceed, but he’s not showing any signs of backing down, that’s for sure.

The Moonwalk


Michael Jackson pioneered so many dance moves, he pretty much is in his own category. No one ever moved like this guy.

Michael Strahan Ends Engagement to Nicole Murphy, Enters Pro Football Hall of Fame!

New York Giants football legend and morning talk-show personality Michael Strahan and his fiancee of five years, Nicole Murphy, called it quits Friday.

The split was an amicable one as their busy careers ultimately doomed the seven-year love affair for the beloved Live With Kelly and Michael host.

Michael Strahan and Nicole Murphy

“They love each other very much, but with the distance and work schedule it has been hard to maintain the relationship,” Strahan’s rep confirms.

Strahan, 42, and Murphy, 46, a model and star of VH1’s show Hollywood Exes (her ex being Eddie Murphy) started dating in 2007 and got engaged in 2009.

The former duo had nine children between them, five of them Murphy’s by Eddie. Strahan has four kids from two ex-wives, Jean Muggli and Wanda Hutchins.

The lovebirds’ careers turned them into a bi-coastal couple, as Strahan spends most of his time in New York while Murphy travels back and forth to L.A.

Because of their hectic schedules, the two were thinking about eloping.

“We might just have to run off and elope,” Murphy told talk-show host Wendy Williams in April. “We’ve been busy though, this has been crazy.”

“The man’s got 20 jobs right now,” Murphy said. “He’s just busy.”

Too busy, it turned out, as they announced the breakup Friday.

Strahan became almost more high profile since he retired from the NFL after the 2007 season, when he helped lead the Giants to the Super Bowl title in his last game.

That legacy will be enshrined permanently in the Pro Football Hall of Fame this evening, when New York’s #92 receives the highest honor in his sport.

Michael played 15 seasons at defensive end, recording double-digit sacks in six, including 2001, when he set the single-season record of 22.5.

He finished with 141.5 sacks, the fifth-most in NFL history. He made seven Pro Bowl teams and ended his career with his first and only championship.

Lil Twist: Cleared in DUI Case!

Lil Twist is off the hook for his 2013 DUI arrest, despite stumbling, swaying and generally making a mess out of his field sobriety test.

Turns out he was intoxicated … just not that intoxicated.

Lil Twist Image

In a Twist of fate (sorry), the rapper and Justin Bieber roommate was pulled over for driving 69 in a 30 m.p.h. and running a red light last summer.

Police noticed a lit blunt in the center console and smelled weed, then noticed his eyes were bloodshot and his speech was “deliberate and lethargic.”

Twist admitted he’d been smoking, then couldn’t touch his nose, walk a straight line or stand up straight on one leg during his field sobriety test.

The officers arrested Lil Twist for DUI in what appeared to be an open-and-shut case and big, big trouble for Bieber’s buddy, but the case was dropped.

Why? For the following reasons:

  • Despite his ineptitude on the scene, a blood sample collected later showed the weed in his system was not high enough to indicate impairment.
  • Twist’s field sobriety results were only “moderately bad.”
  • A criminologist couldn’t say he was impaired to drive.

He was charged in the end with speeding, failing to stop at a red light and possession of less than an ounce of weed, but the DUI charge was tossed.

Big break for this Lil rapper.

Ray J: Arrested For Causing Scene at Hotel, Spitting on Officers, Smashing Cop Car Window!

Ray J was arrested in Beverly Hills on Friday night after a disturbance at the Beverly Wilshire hotel bar led to an ugly altercation with law enforcement.

The Kim Kardashian sex tape star was reportedly causing a scene, prompting someone to call the cops. Officers were dispatched to the establishment.

What Up, Ray J?

Details are hazy, but at some point, hotel staff confronted Ray J and asked him to leave, but he refused. Eventually, police tried to escort him out.

He did not go quietly. In fact, he became irate.

TMZ photos show officers questioning Ray and an unidentified woman before they put the handcuffs on him, which is when things really got ugly.

Ray J allegedly kicked out the window of police vehicle while in the back, and was charged with battery as well for spitting on an officer during the arrest.

He was booked for trespassing (presumably the original, minor hotel offense), plus vandalism, resisting arrest, and battery, according to reports.

More specifics to follow as the story develops, but even at his lowest point, at least Ray knows he hit it first (well, more like fifth, but long before ‘Ye).

No one can ever take that away from him.

T.J. Jackson


T.J. Jackson, Michael’s nephew, was Kim’s first love. It’s believed that he was her “first” in the physical sense as well.

Michael Trevino and Jenna Ushkowitz: It’s Over!

It’s all over between two young stars in Hollywood.

Jenna Ushkowitz and Michael Trevino have split.

At the recent premiere of The Normal Heart in Los Angeles, a videographer asks the Glee star if she’s still dating The Vampire Diaries werewolf, to which Ushkowitz replies:

“No, we’re not together anymore, [but] that’s OK. No worries. We’re wonderful.”

Ushkowitz and Trevino started dating in 2011 and kept their relationship very private over the years.

It’s unclear, therefore, exactly when she split from the actor, but she did send Trevino birthday wishes four months ago, referring to him as the one who “taught me how to laugh and love more and more everyday.”

Trevino, meanwhile, only mentioned Ushkowitz once that we can recall, when he promoted her book, Choosing Glee, in May 2013.

We send both stars our best wishes.

Justin Bieber: More Hated Than Aaron Hernandez!

According to a new survey, Justin Bieber is more hated on than two alleged murderers.

Be it the never-ending Justin Bieber shirtless sightings, his constant run-ins with the law or a stream of pompous acts/quotes, the singer has devolved into the fifth most-hated person in America.

This new E-Score poll ranked disgraced (FORMER!) Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling as the most despised citizen, with 92 percent of respondents indicating their “dislike” of the bigoted billionaire.

Donald Sterling


Donald Sterling is a rambling racist who no longer owns the Clippers. According to an E-Score survey, 92 percent of the country hates him.

Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff earned 90 percent of the negative vote, while almost-definite murderer O.J. Simpson is third, quasi Michael Jackson killer Conrad Murray fourth… and The Biebs fifth! 

Bieber is disliked by 86 percent of those polled, drawing more disgust than Phil Spector (convicted of killing someone; disliked by 83 percent of the public) and Aaron Hernandez, the ex-NFL tight end who’s been charged with three separate murders.

“The survey was conducted among 1,100 persons ages 13-49 with general representation across income, age, education and geographic demographics to represent a cross-section of the U.S. population,” explains E-Score.

Rounding out this hated-on Top 10? Michael Lohan (76%), Eliot Spitzer (73%) and Jon Gosselin (71%).

He Can't Keep His Shirt On


Yeah. Selfies like this work if you’re Matthew McConaughey. Not Justin Bieber. Also, Matthew McConaughey would never post selfies like this because he doesn’t need to constantly beg for attention or prove to himself that he’s cool.

Michael Jace: Anger Issues, Alleged History of Violence Surface

New information has to come to light regarding Michael Jace.

The actor, who was arrested this morning for the murder of his wife, possesses an alleged history of violence.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, a friend of Jace’s ex-wife (Jennifer Bitterman) testified during the star’s divorce proceedings in 1997 that Jace choked Bitterman and slammed her against a wall at one point.

The friend says she witnessed this ugly incident and that it took place in front of the couple’s six-month old child.

Michael Jace Picture

The unnamed friend also says there were multiple occasions of domestic violence and that “seeing the extent of [Jace’s] anger was one of the most terrifying things I have ever seen.”

Jace called 911 last night from his home in Los Angeles and admitted to shooting wife April.

He was taken into custody and charged this morning with murder.

Insiders say the couple often argued over their finances, as Jace filed for bankruptcy in 2011 and was behind is currently behind on his mortgage payments.

Of sad note, meanwhile, is the revelation that April Jace actually testified as well in Michael’s 1997 divorce.

She told the judge that Jace provided a stable home for his child, defending him overall as a father.

Tragically, Jace’s alleged shooting of April reportedly took place in front of their young kids last night. Authorities eventually arrives at the crime scene and transported the toddlers to a relative’s home.

O.J. Simpson


O.J. Simpson was arrested for the murder of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and the pizza guy. He was acquitted in quite the notorious trial.
