After Decades In The Business, Mary Kay Place Is Finally A Leading Lady

Diane,” now open in limited release and available on video on demand. Still, that makes it no less surprising to realize that “Diane” is Place’s first lead role in a theatrically released film. Better late than never. She’s incredible as a New England mother struggling to figure out what her senior years should look life. Diane’s facade masks inner turmoil stemming from her drug-addicted son (Jake Lacy), mistakes from her past and the near-crippling passage of time that eventually engulfs us all. How does it make you feel that this is your first lead role in a movie? IFC Films Mary Kay Place in “Diane.” I had several people send me scripts that had lead roles in them, but when …

I Grew Up With The Wealthy & ConnectedHere’s Why The College Scam Shouldn’t Surprise Anyone Betches

I’m a person who’s followed celebrity news since I was a kid (like, I had subscriptions to Us Weekly and PEOPLE in fourth grade), and even I did not anticipate the celebrity college admissions scandal blowing up like it has. When the news first broke, I was like, “Perfect. Now that Aunt Becky is relevant again, I can segue more easily into the story about how two women at Friendly’s said I was a dead ringer for her when I was 16.” Also, if we’re being honest, I would drop $500,000 just to not have to endure the embarrassment of having a child who unabashedly calls themselves a “YouTuber” and “influencer.” But beyond that, I was pretty unfazed about the …

‘Reading bedtime stories helped me survive prison’

Come to the pub with us lot.” Image copyright Lewis Hardy Image caption Lewis reading in 2019 …

‘Vanderpump Rules’ Recap: Yellow Robe Smith Betches

Anyway, this week we start right back in the middle of Schwartz and Katie’s argument. Schwartz calls Katie a “disaster of a human being” which isn’t a good thing to say to your wife but also isn’t a lie. And herein lies the problem: Schwartz asks Katie why she can’t just tell him that she’s upset, and her reply? “I don’t wanna have to tell you!” Look, Schwartz may know how to use the word “cacophony” correctly, but he’s no mind reader. Cut the poor dude a break. Kristen announces that this is going to be a freakout-free vacay, so I’m starting my stopwatch now to see how long it is before she blows a gasket. Anyone care to place …

People are loving this hilarious viral post about a dad bottle-feeding his baby in public.

Despite being the primary method of feeding babies for-literally-ever, breastfeeding in public is still a hot topic of debate. As someone who’s written about parenting for more than a decade, I can attest that few topics prompt a greater outpouring of opinion than breastfeeding in public. The first blog post I ever had go viral was a response to breastfeeding in public criticisms. My most-shared article for Upworthy was about public breastfeeding finally being legally protected in all 50 states. And this video I made for a commenter on that post who said she didn’t want to see women breastfeeding in public has been shared thousands of times across various platforms: Never feel uncomfortable watching a woman breastfeed again!

Brian Austin Green Reveals The ‘90210’ Cast Reunited To Honor The Late Luke Perry – Perez Hilton

On the March 14 episode of his podcast, Brian Austin Green spoke in detail about his former colleague and longtime friend, “People I haven’t seen in like, 18 years at least. It was very mixed emotions, because you were happy to everybody and you felt like, ‘God, it’s been too long,’ and it was great, but what a horrible reason to have to see everybody again. It was definitely interesting.” The death was so tragic, some of the cast — like Green — are still struggling to come to terms with the fact that Perry is no longer with them. “I don’t totally believe it. There’s a part of me, much like the death of Elvis, that I expect Luke …

‘Us’ scares up screams and applause at SXSW premiere

(CNN)Jordan Peele is up to his old tricks. “Us” tells the story of family, led by Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, who are terrorized by their shadowy doubles. The film garnered cheers and strong reviews on social media from those in the theater. “It should surprise no one that US is a very satisfying (and anxiety-inducing) follow up to GET OUT,” Eric Kohn, IndieWire’s chief critic tweeted. “What’s more fascinating: that a high-concept FUNNY GAMES/Hitchcock/Cronenberg/Bradbury mashup could feel so fresh at the same time.” Without giving away too many of the film’s spooky secrets, it explores topical themes of division. “We are at a time where we fear ‘the other,’” Peele said during a Q&A session after the screening. “I …
