A&E, which is to say the Arts and Entertainment channel, is going to air an hour long special called Cosby: The Women Speak. The show will air intimate interviews with more than a dozen of Bill Cosby’s accusers, some of whom will be sharing their accounts of sexual misconduct publicly for the first time. More than 50 woman have come forward. That’s enough to make a series, not a special. To date, nothing has stuck to the comedian.
We know that Disney is making live action movies of a number of its animated classics, like The Jungle Book, Pinocchio, Beauty and the Beast, and so on, but now they have decided to re-boot one of its greatest classic musicals. Mary Poppins is going o be re-worked. The original made over 100 million and won five Oscars, including one for Julie Andrews, but that was in 1964. And a totally trippy little movie as well. Family hires a nanny who flies down from the sky with an umbrella, hangs out with chimney sweeps, and gives the kids a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down. Sheesh.
Speaking of hot nannies, model Chrissie Teigan is backing down after saying she would never hire one. Teigan, who is married to singer John Legend, caused a twitter on twitter when she commented on celebrities like Ben Affleck having affair with the children’s nannies. Teigan said her rule is “no hot nannies, drivers, or maids”, and there’s been a backlash. Who knew hot nannies were a group? I didn’t realize they were organized. Led. No doubt, by Arnold Schwarzeneggers housekeeper.
just like low carb diet of licking chips, my "no hot nannies" comment was a joke, clearly lost upon many. what is life. why must i type this— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 11, 2015
Steven Page, formerly a member of The Barenaked Ladies has begun legal action after alleging he has received no royalties for the theme song to he hit TV show The Big Bang Theory. The ex-frontman, who left the group in 2009, says he is owed 20 percent of the proceeds, but alleges that only Ed Robertson is seeing any money. Not sure what Steven Page is up to these days, but I suspect on a good day the only 20 percent he’s seeing is the tip you left him for dinner.
