Never in a million years did I think I’d ever be jealous of Pee-wee Herman, but that day has come. I’m sure I’m not the only one who wouldn’t mind riding bitch on a motorcycle with arms hanging onto Joe Manganiello’s tight waist for dear life. Right?

The former True Blood actor joins the cast of Pee-wee’s Big Holiday. The last time Paul Reubens played his iconic character in a feature film was in Big Top Pee-wee back in 1988. Big Holiday doesn’t have a release date yet but will premiere on Netflix.

“I never really thought of Big Adventure as a family movie, but I didn’t try to make an adult movie or a kid movie,” he told Entertainment Weekly previously. “We wanted to make something that appealed to a wide age range, and I think that’s the case with this movie also.”

The sixth season for any series featuring young actors is always crucial. Typically, the network signs the relative newcomers for six seasons at the beginning to lock them down. Naturally, some usually jump ship when their contract is over to pursue other endeavours or leave because not enough money was offered to stay.

In Nina Dobrev’s case, it seems it’s the former. The 26-year-old actress wrote a heartfelt message on Instagram to go along with a picture of herself with The Vampire Diaries showrunner Julie Plec. Here’s a snippet below.

“I’ve just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. I want to be the first to tell you that it wasn’t just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. I always knew I wanted Elena’s story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime.”

Plec confirmed Dobrev’s exit with her own statement.

“Saying goodbye to Nina is both bittersweet and beautiful,” she said. “After six-plus years together, the entire cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries has reached a level of closeness that I don’t think any of us ever expected. Nina is excited to spread her wings, get some rest, travel the world and also take it by storm, and we support her a thousand-fold. We will miss Nina and the four hundred characters she played, but we look forward to the insane and exciting challenge of continuing to tell stories of our Salvatore Brothers and our much-loved and gifted ensemble.”

The Vampire Diaries showrunner also revealed that another series regular is stepping down. Find out who below.

When they were BFFs, NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak provided some of the most hilarious moments on the first few seasons of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Their fights were equally as riveting and epic. There was a moment in time when the two couldn’t even be in the same room together. However, the two buried the hatchet a couple of seasons ago.

Personally, I believe Leakes was open to reconciling once she started to achieve success outside the Housewives franchise. I like NeNe but she doesn’t do well when others do better than her. Now that she sorta has the upper hand with Kim and is enemy No. 1 on RHOA, I can see why she agreed to this.

Bravo announced a new spinoff titled NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches which follows the ladies driving from ATL to LAX. Hopefully, this ends up better than their last road trip. Remember when the two almost came to physical blows on a bus headed to Miami?

“Atlanta’s ‘most driven’ housewives…drive out of their comfort zones and across the country to discover America on a one-of-a-kind adventure,” the network said in a statement. “The road to LA may be paved with good intentions, but that doesn’t mean they won’t occasionally drive each other crazy.”

The network also revealed other programs coming in the future. Find out what new and returning shows are on deck.

trevor-noah-late-show

Earlier this year, Jon Stewart announced his exit from The Daily Show after sitting behind the desk for 17 years. After several names were tossed around as possible replacements, one has been picked.

Trevor Noah has been officially named as Stewart’s successor. The 31-year-old comedian is a relatively new correspondent to the show, having only appeared three times. He has, though, hosted previously- a late-night talk show in his native country, South Africa. No word on when Stewart will sign off or when Noah takes over the desk has been revealed.

“Trevor Noah is an enormous talent. He has an insightful and unique point of view, and most importantly, is wickedly funny” – Comedy Central’s president Michele Ganeless
