The First 3 Minutes of This Is Us Season 2 Are Already Making Us Cry Buckets

After what seemed like an eternity of waiting, This Is Us is back with an exclusive look at season two, and boy is it jam-packed with emotions. Following the events of the season one finale when Randall tells Beth that he wants to adopt a child, the three-minute clip shows him having a heart-to-heart with Rebecca about his own adoption. While she admits that it was «complicated» at first, it was his adoptive father, Jack, who really pulled her through it and made her realize that Randall was meant to be their son. Cue the tears! Seriously, grab some tissues and get ready for Sept. 25, because if this is any indication, the premiere is going to make you sob buckets.

Watch Chandler Parsons Crush a Pilates Sesh

Here’s some news that should bring a smile to the faces Grizzlies fans: Chandler Parsons is back on his comeback grind after a couple of weeks of fun with buddy Blake Griffin.

As you can see below, Chan Dog is really embracing that LA life (he recently spent $ 11 million on a home in Bel-Air) as he spent a chunk of his Tuesday getting his pilates on:

It goes without saying that observing on Chan Dog’s form is probably every woman’s dream gig — the captions say it all:

He followed this up today by playing some three-on-three with fellow NBAers Kevin Durant and Courtney Lee in the Lakers’ facility. The knee didn’t seem to be an issue as he knocked down open threes and dropped some dimes to KD:

Chan Dog also got to work with Dubs player development coach Steve Nash. Look closely and you’ll also see Draymond Green in the house:

How Benjen Stark’s Tragic Return on Game of Thrones Connects to Bran

While sitting down to write the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones season seven, showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff clearly couldn’t have cared less about our tear ducts. Not only is one of Daenerys’s beloved dragons killed off (and then resurrected), «Beyond the Wall» also features the reappearance and subsequent death of the mysterious Benjen Stark.

Toward the end of the episode, he arrives just in time to save Jon Snow from the army of wights, taking out a ton of the ice zombies with his flaming flail before being overcome by a large pack that jumps on top of him. In the books, Benjen is more of an important figure in Bran’s story (if you subscribe to the theory that he and Coldhands are one and the same), but it initially appeared that his true purpose in the TV adaptation was to help Jon Snow fulfill his destiny (i.e. not die) (again). Although their extremely brief reunion and Benjen’s subsequent sacrifice are touching, his miraculous timing definitely struck a few Game of Thrones fans as being pretty unrealistic. Sure, the half-dead former Night’s Watch member has been roaming around beyond the Wall, but he manages to time his arrival to the White Walker battle to this exact moment?

In addition to GOT director Alan Taylor’s recent comments about how the timeline of the show doesn’t necessarily add up, Reddit user ProbablyAPun seems to have figured out how, exactly, Benjen knows when and where to save his nephew, and it all goes back to Benjen’s season six episode with Bran Stark.

As you might recall, Benjen also comes to the aid of Bran and Meera just in the nick of time, when he saves them from the horde of wights hot on their trail in «Blood of My Blood.» He reveals to the two of them that the Three Eyed Raven sent for him, which echoes a similar connection that Coldhands has to the Three Eyed Raven in the book (he’s basically a walking vessel for the ancient figure and is almost always surrounded by a flock of ravens, which seem to carry messages for him). Now, though we haven’t seen Benjen since season six, ProbablyAPun’s theory proposes that he’s been keeping tabs on the Starks all along through some sort of «supernatural communication» with Bran.

[Everything] My theory on Uncle Benjen. from gameofthrones

The parameters of Bran’s powers are still murky at this point, but it would certainly be a great nod to Coldhands and Bran’s relationship in the books if they have indeed been communicating this way.

Louise Linton Is Sorry For Bragging About Her Luxe Life On Instagram

Singer Louise Linton,

Yesterday we all got to know Louise Linton, the wife of U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Here’s what we learned: that she was a former aspiring actress-turned-fiction writer who is the type to brag about her glamorous, expensive life on social media. Well, one of her recent posts came back to bite her in her $ 955 Roland Mouret-covered ass, and she’s just so soooooo sorry about it.

Louise posted a picture to her Instagram account of her and her husband getting off a private jet after a day trip to Kentucky, and tagged all the expensive brands she was wearing. She got roasted in the comments for boasting about her possibly taxpayer-funded ensemble and air travel. Louise personally slapped back at one such person, a mom of three from Oregon named Jenni Miller, in the most deeply condescending way possible by making fun of her financial situation and family. That went over even worse. So Louise deleted the post, then set her account to private, where it remains as such today.

Despite her best efforts to scrub the problem away, Louise got a ton of hate for acting like Louise Antoinette. Louise clearly doesn’t want to be pelted with tomatoes the next time she tags along for a day trip (we wouldn’t want to soil our best white mink shopping capelet). CNN received a statement from her publicist, apologizing for her rich creep behavior.

“I apologize for my post on social media yesterday as well as my response. It was inappropriate and highly insensitive.”

But how does Jenni Miller feel about all this mess? CNN spoke to Jenni Miller. Jenni should come with a heat warning, because she managed to give Louise a second devastating burn.

“Once I found out about the response, I was a little bit amused and a little bit horrified, but mostly just confused as to why she would take the time or effort or energy to put together such a response. If I had any respect for her, it probably would have been hurtful, because she was very condescending and very – she made a lot of assumptions about me and my husband and my life and my family.”

Jenni acknowledged that she’s a bit famous now, and told the New York Daily News that she wanted to use any newfound notoriety she has to encourage people to donate to a family friend who recently suffered a stroke.

As if getting dragged by Jenni wasn’t enough, WWD says that several high-end brands pulled a “We don’t know her” on Louise. A rep for Valentino, a brand she tagged in that original post, tells WWD: “Louise Linton did not receive any gifted merchandise, compensation or loans from Valentino.” She also has no ties to Tom Ford, another brand she bragged about. A spokesperson for Roland Mouret declined to comment.

All jokes aside, there’s a real victim here that we should feel so terribly sorry for, and her name is Louise Linton. Gosh, that poor woman. Not poor-poor, of course, heavens no! Ew, how dare I? It’s just such an unfortunate situation. Her Instagram account is set to p-p-p-private! I mean, all Louise wants to do is brag about the expensive things she bought with her husband’s expense account, but she can’t now, because too many people with class and integrity and good character called her out for being tacky and materialistic. Just think, the next time Louise drops $ 20,000 on an outfit at Barneys, who will know? It’s truly a tragic tree-falls-in-the-asshole-forest situation.

Open Post: Hosted By Nicki Minaj And Blac China Racing In Slutty Judy Jetson Frocks

nickiblacpost

Fresh off Blac Chyna trying to steal Rob Kardashian’s leased Range Rover, MTV shows us Yo Gotti and Nicki Minaj are here to turn it all into fancy, shmancy art in the “Rake It Up” video. At least that’s what I think they’re doing? Well, this is a Nicki video. It’s not Louvre-style art. It’s a bunch of rubber-(barely) covered booty thangs gyrating in ways that would make the rakes in a normal backyard shed blush. So, like, the kind of art you see hanging on the walls of a Starbucks.

The whole video is currently exclusive to Tidal, which means we’ve only got clips. But that’s all we really need.

It starts out pretty simple: Nicki is here to prove all y’all’s parents wrong and show that money DOES grow on trees, and she’s here to rake it…yeah, you know where this is going. After working the rake pole like she’s in some airport adjacent “gentleman’s restaurant,” Nicki is off to the races. I still don’t really get why Blac is in this video. I get Nicki is probably getting tired of finding words to rhyme with MYX Moscato (on sale at New Hampshire Liquor Stores, Boston shoppers!), but she just says Chyna in that “Ima hiss this word even though there isn’t an ‘s’ in it” kinda way. You could easily give the people what they want and just do that with, I dunno…MARIAH?!?

Nicki seems pretty enthused to be racing Blac, but, girl, I’m onto you. The only reason you have her in that shiny, latex Barbarella getup is not because you just really like Jane Fonda after watching Grace & Frankie. It’s because that shit surely squeaks, and you want to hear if that huss tries to run off the Warner lot with so much as one of your Beats Pills!

F**k We’re Old Now: Comedy Central Will Need An 8-Day Marathon To Air Every Episode Of ‘South Park’

20 years. 20 Seasons. 254 episodes. That weird little construction paper cutout cartoon with the alien anal probes and foul-mouthed kids has been around longer than anyone expected. It’s a ratings juggernaut and a licensed merchandise machine. It’s produced an Oscar-nominated film, and a video game (with another on the way).

And it isn’t over yet.

So in preparation for the launch of season 21, Comedy Central has planned a huge back-to-back marathon of EVERY. SINGLE. EPISODE. Which, it turns out, will take 8 whole days (pausing only for breaks to air The Daily Show). The marathon will kick off on September 6th, and will lead up to the season 21 premiere on September 13th. So kick back, call out sick, and refuse to sleep for over a week while you relive the offensive, ridiculous, and often deadly (to Kenny) adventures of four boys in a little town in Colorado.

Or just tune in when «Scott Tenorman Must Die» airs, because that’s the best episode.

via GIPHY

Created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the pilot for South Park aired on Comedy Central 20 years ago this month. This season the pair promises to return to their episodic storytelling, without the longer over-arching season storyline. Presumably they will also continue to write and animate the episodes in the 6 days before they air, because procrastination pays. Meanwhile we are inching closer to the release of their next role-playing video game, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, which comes out October 17th.

19 Egregiously Unrealistic Things That Happened on This Week’s Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones is a show about dragons, zombie bears, and people regularly coming back to life, so it shouldn’t be news to anyone that watching the fantasy epic requires just a little bit of suspended belief. That being said, I found myself repeating the same thing over and over again as I took in season seven’s sixth episode:

«Wow, that makes absolutely NO sense.»

«Holy sh*t, that doesn’t make any sense.»

«Does that make sense to you? Because . . . what the hell?»

Granted, I’m not expecting realism from a show that once depicted the birth of shadow demon, but «Beyond the Wall» — as thrilling as it is — is basically a nonstop barrage of seemingly lazy plot devices designed to move the episode along at warp speed without having to bother explaining how any of it is even remotely possible. I don’t necessarily need to have a scene where the maesters outline a mathematical equation about the speed-distance relationship that applies to dragon travel on a whiteboard, but I do need to have some semblance of reality within the story’s own universe. Season seven, though exciting, is starting to veer more and more off the rails due to each episode’s breakneck pace.

While I don’t necessarily mind these wildly unbelievable aspects of the story all the time (I love Game of Thrones, after all) here are a few questions from Sunday night’s episode that I’m still baffled by.

First Look: Soderbergh’s ‘Godless’ Brings The Feminist Frontier To Netflix

Academy Award-winner Steven Soderbergh is teaming up with his Out of Sight screenwriter Scott Frank for a seven-part Netflix original limited series called Godless. The epic western series has Soderbergh serving as the executive producer and Frank writing and directing, not to mention a cast featuring the talents of Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom), Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey), and Jack O’Connell (I’m only ever going to credit him with Skins — deal with it). And Netflix has just released a batch of initial images to provide the first glimpse of that wacky frontier life, where a town full of womenfolk gather to defend a man from a bloodthirsty gang of outlaws.

Here is the official synopsis:

Notorious criminal Frank Griffin (Daniels) and his gang of outlaws are on a mission of revenge against Roy Goode (O’Connell), a son-like protégé who betrayed the brotherhood. While on the run, Roy seeks refuge with hardened widower Alice Fletcher (Dockery), an outcast herself, in a worn-down, isolated mining town of La Belle, NM — governed mainly by women. When word reaches La Belle that Griffin is headed their way, the town bands together to defend against the murderous gang in a lawless western frontier.

And here are the first photos, which kind of scream «Westworld, minus the robots» to me — though, to be fair, Westworld has spoiled the Wild West for me and I’ll always want it to be filled with robots. Anyway, see if you can spot Sam Waterston, who apparently will be playing a marshall in at least one episode (because duh, he’ll always be either Law or Order in our books):

John Dennis Weighs In On His Old Buddy Ryen Russillo’s Arrest

Boston radio legend John Dennis had a rather subdued take on the news that Ryen Russillo got raging drunk this morning in Wyoming and ended up in a bedroom of a condo that wasn’t the one where he was staying. Russillo was incoherent and arrested by the local cops, according to reports out of Jackson Hole.

This was the perfect opportunity for Dennis to pounce on his old buddy, but he didn’t exactly pull out the flamethrower via Twitter.

Maybe it’s because Dennis has been through rehab himself.

You might remember the sports radio feud that never seemed to die between Dennis, who left WEEI in 2016, and Russillo was the sports radio feud that just kept giving us great moments. There was the voicemail Dennis left for Russillo years ago where the old radio vet told the young punk, “I’ll rip your [fuccin] ears off, and your nose off and I’ll shove ’em up your ass.”

It was an all-time voicemail.

And then there was the 2012 Super Bowl feud where Dennis and Russillo had some sort of showdown with Dennis claiming that Russillo was forced out of the ESPN party and that he was an alcoholic.

Now here we are with Russillo hammered out of his face — “blood shot glassy eyes, very slurred speech and could not answer questions coherently, all signs of alcohol intoxication.”

What’s it all mean? I’m guessing it means that the Russillo show will be without its host for a couple weeks, maybe longer.
