kelly-ripa-returns

“Our long national nightmare is over.” Indeed it is.

Kelly Ripa couldn’t have said it any better. After a week of non-stop coverage about the drama surrounding Michael Strahan leaving Live With Kelly & Michael! for Good Morning America, it was all put to bed today with Ripa’s return. Within the first five minutes of the show, Ripa addressed the scandal after walking hand-in-hand with Strahan.

“I first want to honestly, sincerely thank you for welcoming me back to the show. The love, the show of support through this bizarre time has been really overwhelming. I really — I needed a couple of days to gather my thoughts. After 26 years with this company, I earned the right, and let’s be honest — I know half of you called in sick to be here, so we get each other.”

Her address then segued to communication, consideration and respect in the workplace. She finished things off by congratulating her co-host on his new gig. Check out the clip below.

twin-peaks-revival

Showtime released the official cast list for its upcoming Twin Peaks revival. Fans of the original will be happy to know that numerous alums are returning including Kyle MacLachlan, David Duchovny, Sheryl Lee, Sherilyn Fenn, Mädchen Amick, Michael Horse, Dana Ashbrook, Miguel Ferrer, Ray Wise, Grace Zabriskie, Peggy Lipton, Everett McGill and David Lynch.

However, on that whopping 217-name list, some notable OGs are missing. Lara Flynn Boyle (Donna), Joan Chen (Jocelyn) and Piper Laurie (Catherine) are missing from the roster. I’m curious to know if their absence is due to them being not interested or due to the storyline. I’m sure details will emerge in the future.

With regards to the newbies, there are some pretty big names attached including Ashley Judd, Michael Cera, Naomi Watts, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Laura Dern and Trent Reznor. A few other interesting participants are Suburgatory‘s Jane Levy, Monica Belucci, Jim Belushi and Michael Cera. Check out the full line-up below.

Twin Peaks returns to the small screen in early 2017.

It’s no secret that Andy Cohen and Kelly Ripa are best buddies. This morning, the 47-year-old Watch What Happens Live host lived up to his GBF title and stood by Ripa’s side.

During his SiriusXM radio show, he defended Ripa against all the media scrutiny. He also chimed in on Michael Strahan jumping ship over to Good Morning America. Let’s just say, it wasn’t the most optimistic forecast.

“I’ve been getting so many questions about what’s going on with my friend Kelly Ripa, and ‘How’s she doing?’ and ‘What do you think?’ You know, I want to say that she… I know she spent the weekend celebrating her 20th anniversary with Mark, which has been a long-planned vacation. So don’t get her trending on Twitter today because she’s not at work. She is on a long-planned vacation.”

“You know, when I look at this whole situation, it’s worth nothing, the two of them, Kelly and Michael, they had such great chemistry,” he continued. “And I’m just looking at this and it just seems like a premature end to a great relationship that ended way too prematurely. So much has been written about this situation and how it was handled. I’ve been a TV executive or producer for 25 years, so I’m always fascinated to see how TV things go down. I can’t say this went down the greatest way.”

For its 2016 live musical event, NBC selected Hairspray. Wise choice if you ask me. Love the stage production and feature film musical. The peacock network has announced its first two cast members.

Fresh off her Broadway debut in The Color Purple, Jennifer Hudson heads over to Baltimore to play Motormouth Maybelle. Queen Latifah memorably played the character in the 2007 film. Inspired casting if you ask me. J-Hud is going to absolutely slay it. Find out which Broadway legend is also joining the project.

Beyonce’s Lemonade Available On iTunes

After her highly-anticipated HBO special premiered, LEMONADE, immediately became available for streaming and sale exclusively on TIDAL. As much as I love Beyonce, I didn’t cave in and sign up for a free 30-day trial. Wise move on my part. Just 24 hours later, Bey’s 6th studio album appeared on iTunes and unlike her previous album initially, tracks were available to purchase individually. With regards to streaming though, it appears LEMONADE will stream “exclusively in perpetuity” over at TIDAL.

Did you watch LEMONADE on HBO this past weekend? I did and even had a few people over to catch it. While I enjoyed her ambitious feminist feature film with beautifully-shot images of Afro-American Southern imagery, voodoo visuals and futuristic moments, I was a little underwhelmed by the music. IMHO, there wasn’t a single track that screamed instant radio hit. With that being said “Hold Up, “”6 Inch” feature The Weeknd, “Daddy Lessons” and “Sorry” I instantly liked.

HBO Renews Game Of Thrones, Veep & Silicon Valley

A few days ahead of their respective season premieres, HBO announced its renewing Game of Thrones, Veep and Silicon Valley for another year. That means a seventh season for the fantasy drama and sixth and fourth for the Julia Louis-Dreyfus show and tech comedy respectively.

Noticeably absent from the announcement was exactly how many episodes Game of Thrones Season 7 will air. Just recently, show producers hinted at shortened seasons.

“I think we’re down to our final 13 episodes after this season. We’re heading into the final lap,” showrunner David Benioff told Variety. “That’s the guess, though nothing is yet set in stone, but that’s what we’re looking at.”

Which of the three renewals has you most excited. Sound off below.

It was heavily touted as the gay Girls. Sadly, it never lived up to the hype with viewers and critics alike. After two seasons and only 18 episodes, HBO pulled the plug on Looking. As a consolation prize, the network promised a finale special that would tie up all the characters’ loose ends.

At long last, we’ll finally find out if Patrick (Jonathan Groff) chooses Kevin (Russell Tovey), Richie (Raul Castillo) or himself. The Looking wrap-up film will premiere at the Frameline Film Festival, taking place in San Francisco from June 16-26. It will reportedly close out the festival.

Fingers crossed HBO doesn’t take too much time after the festival ends to air the finale special. I’m still salty about the cancellation and God damnit I’ve waited long enough after the Season 2 finale.

Are you looking forward to the final chapter? Sound off below.

The first episode of the epic three-part Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion airs tonight and I can’t wait. The reunions never fail to deliver drama and gif-worthy moments. A lot went down during RHOBH Season 6 so I expect plenty of fireworks.

Being that it was Erika Jayne’s freshman season, getting used to all the in-fighting and public scrutiny takes a bit of adjustment. I’m sure her new track “How Many F••ks?” is inspired by her Real Housewives experience.

Jayne is unlike all those other Housewives who’ve dabbled in music. She actually has some recording cred and has eight No. 1 Billboard Dance hits to her name. Check out her latest below and weigh in if you think if it’ll be her ninth chart-topper.
