Jennifer Lopez is a jack of all trades. She can sing, she can dance, and she can act. Like, really act. Not only does she nail roles on the small screen, like Detective Harlee Santos in Shades of Blue, but also in big-ticket movies. Lopez has built a film career for herself since nabbing a part in the 1986 drama My Little Girl, and in light of the news of her latest film, Second Act — which she’s starring in with real-life BFF Leah Remini — we’re taking a look at some of her best roles. From playing Selena in the biopic of the same name to fighting to get her life back in Enough, Lopez has won us over with her silver screen roles for over 30 years and counting.
Ever since Riverdale‘s season two trailer dropped, fans were counting down the seconds to the premiere with plenty of questions on their minds: who the hell shot Fred Andrews? Would he survive? And more importantly, when are we going to see Veronica and Archie’s epic shower scene?! Luckily, thirsty viewers were blessed with the latter in the season’s first episode, but it wasn’t exactly welcomed with open arms by everyone.
The premiere opens at a strangely old-timey hospital, where Archie and his friends anxiously wait to hear about Fred’s fate. Betty, noticing that Archie is still covered in his father’s blood, suggests that Archie go home to freshen up. His girlfriend, Veronica, helpfully tags along for moral support. Shortly after the two get back to the Andrews house, we catch a glimpse of Archie’s rock-hard, glistening abs as he rinses off, and hot DAMN.

When Archie is in the middle of his shower, Veronica decides to strip down and waltz on in to join him for a good ol’ rubdown. Needless to say, things get pretty f*ckin’ steamy, as they share a passionate (yet short-lived) makeout sesh.

As soon as the sexy scene went down, fans couldn’t help but share their reactions on social media, and it looks like pretty much everyone had mixed feelings. Some were admittedly super turned on by Varchie’s shower scene, while others thought it was bad timing on Veronica’s part considering the fact that Archie’s dad had just been shot. How about you? Were you confused? Aroused? A strange hybrid of both? Whatever you’re feeling, you’re definitely not alone.
If you’ve been on NFL Twitter the past 24 hours, then you know a number of insiders have tweeted about Mike McCarthy being A-OK with Brett Hundley as his starter going forward. It makes perfect sense considering he’s had Brett on his team for three years now, and it’s not like Colin would play the role of savior coming in off the street.
But, of course, media members continued to badger McCarthy over Kaepernick this afternoon. It’s pretty much a standard question these days when a QB job opens up, but McCarthy has clearly had enough:

As far as the hit that torpedoed the Packers’ season, McCarthy isn’t a fan of that either:

The least surprising thing about the Trump presidency is that his current wife Melania Trump (aka the First Lady) and his ex-wife Ivana Trump have both come down with cat-scratch fever and are battling it out in the press and on TV. In the Trump era, nothing is considered inappropriate, undignified, or “YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE THE FIRST LADY, WHY WOULD YOU TAKE EVEN A MOMENT TO ADDRESS THIS CHICK’S TAUNTS. PUERTO RICO IS STILL A DISASTER AREA. DID YOU STOP BULLYING, YET? IT’S ALL ABOUT PRIORITIES, CAPTAIN HURRICANE STILETTOS!”
Ivana is selling a book about raising her and Donald’s awful children, and her marketing ploy of dragging the First Lady worked. Because the First Lady responded. So Ivana went on Wendy Williams to respond to Melania’s response.
E! reports that Ivana took a moment to clarify what she said on GMA about being the real “First Lady.” She also solidified her future appointment as the US Sass General by suggesting Melania “get over it.”
“I tell you, I’m technically ‘First Lady Trump,’” Ivana, who is promoting her new book Raising Trump, told Wendy Williams. “I was first wife. I don’t know what is Melania’s problem. She just have to get over it. She is First Lady of America but I’m First Lady Trump, excuse me, and have three grownup kids.”
I know what is Melania’s problem. It’s that she was obviously absent a burning desire to be First Lady of the United States. She just wanted to get out of Slovenia and find a rich dude. Being able to afford even more expensive pussy bow blouses is nice, but everyone wants her to be this stand-up chick helping to guide an entire nation. “Jebeš to!,” she had told her asshole husband to no avail.
Speaking of not wanting the First Lady gig:
When asked about Melania’s rep’s clapback, Ivana said, “I have no idea why she did it, ’cause I never said I’m ‘First Lady of America.’ Better her than me, frankly, you know.”
How much do you wish her ex had felt that way about the presidency? Watch Ivana offer Melania some advice below.
The Sun is bringing forth the type of news that will no doubt have that last remaining handful of Robsten fans singing the Hallelujah Chorus. After months of rumors and vague-ish relationship status updates, it sounds like Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs have permanently split.
A source tells The Sun that their relationship has cooled to lukewarm (the unsexiest of love temperatures) after more than three years together. The source implies the break up was a long time coming, and that Robert ended it.
“Rob is tired of it, has called off their engagement and told friends they have split. With so much history between them, though, there are still strong feelings there.
It’s a difficult situation, but things have become tough between them for some time and they both know they were no longer working as a couple.”
At least Robert is already familiar with bachelor meal prep.
This isn’t exactly shocking news if you’ve been following the love story of Robert and Twigs. Back in July, he claimed they were “kind of” engaged. Then he was kind of seen having dinner with Katy Perry. Then Twigs was kind of seen getting cozy with a male model. So none of us should really be that surprised if Robert is kind of seen moving his stuff out of her London flat in the next couple weeks. I wonder what a hipster moving company looks like? I’m picturing three guys in skinny black jeans dragging boxes to an ironic wood-paneled Volvo station wagon in exchange for American Spirits and a case of Miller High Life.
Episode six of American Horror Story: Cult was filled with more «holy sh*ts» than we could count, but more than anything, we need to break down the crippling and eventually fatal plot twist that went down with Leslie Grossman’s character, Meadow Wilton.
«Mid-Western Assassin» opens with Meadow confiding in Ally (Sarah Paulson), telling her all about Kai’s cult and the members involved (including Ally’s wife, Ivy). Everything is making sense and Ally is checking off all her boxes to confirm she’s not «crazy,» but then we realize Meadow didn’t actually leave the cult. Her confiding in Ally is just another one of Kai’s ploys to control Ally. In fact, Meadow is in love with Kai, and at the end of the episode, just before she takes her own life, she declares, «This is the face of true love.»
This sh*tstorm of an episode had us contemplating team names for Meadow and Ally (Mally? Adow?) one second and screaming at our televisions for the manipulation Meadow puts us (and Ally) through the next. Read on to see the roller coaster of emotions we all went through while watching Meadow risk it all for the D on last night’s episode of AHS: Cult.
Kit Harington and Rose Leslie have been melting our hearts ever since they first got together in 2012. While the couple initially kept their romance under wraps, Kit has been opening up more and more in recent years about their relationship, especially now that they’re engaged. As we await more details on Kit and Rose’s upcoming nuptials, take a look at the sweetest things Kit has ever said about Rose.
- On meeting Rose on Game of Thrones: «I think that’s the really special thing about it is that we met on this show . . . It’s such a special thing. I’m so privileged.»
- On his favorite moment from the show: «The three weeks in Iceland where we shot the second season. Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love. If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love.»
- On keeping their relationship private: «It’s as much her relationship as it is mine and I can’t speak for both of us. But yeah, we are very, very happy. So that’s what I’ll say about that.»
- On moving in with Rose: «I’ve moved in with my other best friend, Rose. So, I’m very, very happy, and it’s going well. She has all sorts of ideas for the house. I said to her, because she moved into my house, ‘Look, darling, this is important that it’s our space, that it feels like our space and that you haven’t just moved into mine. Move anything you want around — change anything or chuck anything out.'»
- On why he decided to propose a day earlier than he originally intended: «I did have some plans to do it. I was going to string up some lights in some trees and do all the romantic stuff, but we were in the country and we were under this beautiful night sky and had a log fire burning and red wine and I blew my load early. I was meant to do it the day after with the lights. What I meant to say was, I popped my question a bit early. Not blew my load. Sorry, that’s a really bad expression.»

Sarah Jessica Parker recently confirmed that we’re definitely not getting a third Sex and the City movie, but the ensuing drama between members of the cast has been even harder to deal with than the actual news. In an interview with Extra, SJP said, «It’s over. We’re not doing it.» When asked if she was disappointed that there wouldn’t be a third installment, she replied, «Absolutely, I’m disappointed. We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story.» She added: «It’s not just disappointing that we don’t get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.»
The same day as SJP’s interview, the Daily Mail reported that her costar Kim Cattrall — who played Samantha Jones on the hit HBO series and in the two movies — made «demands» and «ultimatums» to Warner Bros. that were the reason for the project not going forward. Kim took to Twitter to blast the rumors, saying, «The only ‘DEMAND’ I ever made was that I didn’t want to do a 3rd film….& that was back in 2016.» Her statement drew support from fans, as well as a comment from Willie Garson (Stanford Blatch), who wrote simply, «Huh?» The actor also expressed his sadness for «all crew holding on for negotiations to conclude for their jobs, and of course, the fans,» adding, «Leave it at that.»
Sarah Jessica’s comments about the third movie did not sit well with Kim. While rumors of a rift between the main cast have persisted since the show was still on the air, things came to a head on Tuesday when the 61-year-old actress gave a scathing tell-all interview to Piers Morgan for the ITV series Life Stories.

«And now, now at this very moment, it’s quite extraordinary to get any kind of negative press about something that I’ve been saying for almost a year of ‘no’ that I’m demanding or a diva,» Kim explained. «This is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker in that I think she could have been nicer.» She continued: «I don’t know what her issue is, I never have.»
«Me playing her, that I can assure you will never happen,» she said. «For me it’s over, it’s over with no regrets. I just wish that Sarah had been nicer.»
She went on to call her relationship with the other women «toxic,» adding that «the common ground that we had was the series and the series is over.» Kim also revealed that she can’t remember the last time she spoke to her former costars. «Another thing that’s really disappointing is that nobody ever picks up the phone and tries to contact you and say, ‘How you doing?’ That would have been the way to handle it.» She did admit that there «is a genuine affection» for Sarah Jessica and that she wouldn’t rule out a reconciliation — though she has no plans to play sex-crazed PR guru Samantha Jones ever again. «Me playing her, that I can assure you will never happen,» she said. «For me it’s over, it’s over with no regrets. I just wish that Sarah had been nicer.» Kim added: «I’ve moved on, this is what my 60s are about, they’re about me making decisions for me, not my career, for me. And that feels frickin’ fantastic.»
As a massive Sex and the City fan, I have to admit that I’m with Kim on this one. I don’t feel the need for another film, because I’d rather relive the amazing characters through show reruns. Furthermore, Kim (or any actor, for that matter) has the right to turn down reprising a role that just doesn’t fit her life or interests anymore. What I do hope is that she and Sarah Jessica can patch things up, because I can’t stand to see the stars from my favorite franchise beefing about anything but whether Carrie should have ended up with Big or Aidan.
After a well-received premiere episode, Will & Grace continues to show it is still the series we all know and love from a decade ago with episode two, cleverly titled «Who’s Your Daddy?» Will and Jack come to grips with being «daddies,» aka older men who are interested in younger guys, on the dating scene.
On Will’s ill-fated date with a 23-year-old (played by Dear Evan Hansen Tony-winner Ben Platt), the young man dismisses Will’s «older guy» drama by saying that he knows «all about Stonehenge,» to which Will replies, «Do you mean Stonewall?»
For those of you who were confused by the reference, the Stonewall riots happened in June 1969 when members of the LGBTQ+ community held demonstrations in New York City after the police raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village. It was not uncommon for police to raid gay bars then, but at Stonewall, the situation came to a head, leading to protests for weeks. Within a few months, two gay activist organizations had formed and three newspapers were established to promote gay rights. The first gay pride marches then took place on the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall raid, which is why a lot of pride events are held in June throughout the world.
In giving his history lesson, Will launches into a pretty epic speech about younger generations not forgetting the people who fought for their rights.
«It’s great that you have no shame. I mean, you missed the joy of signing up for football to fool your parents. But you guys can never forget the struggle that came before you, the people that fought and loved and . . . and died so that you could walk down the street in skinny jeans with rights you never even knew you never had. The minute we forget what we went through to get here is the minute it could all be taken away,» says Will.
Then, in a callback to an earlier joke, he adds, «And that will be the night the lights go out in Georgia!»
Just as an FYI, if you aren’t familiar with Designing Women, Will was referencing a famous monologue by Dixie Carter. Her character, Julia Sugarbaker, was kind of known for them on the CBS sitcom that ran from 1986 to 1993. Unfortunately, Designing Women is not available to stream anywhere — who can we call about that oversight? — but you can at least watch Carter’s «the night the lights went out in Georgia» speech below.
Page Six is reporting that Kelly Ripa’s new co-host, Ryan Seacrest, was to make an appearance on Good Morning America with the FINALLY complete American Idol judging lineup Wednesday, but Kelly threw a fit at the last minute and he had to cancel, so the judges did the appearance sans their Ryan, who a source says is scared shitless of his yapping lapdog of a co-host.
The source said this to Page Six:
“It’s very clear that Ryan wants to stay on her good side. She’s an executive producer on the show, so she has a lot of pull. It’s fair to say she has a lot of influence over him. He joined her show. It sounds like she still feels threatened.”
Ha! Kelly may look like a chipper band geek, but don’t let that fool you: she’s the Morning Show Don. Once you enter Live!, you’re there until she sets you free, which is flat out never. Regis Philbin, WHO WAS THERE FIRST, said she took it personally when he decided to retire and has never invited her back to be a guest, which is sorta not true, but I admire the shit stirring that was probably him just paying a debt to Queen Kathie Lee Gifford. And we all know how she took Michael Strahan’s departure for greener Good Morning America pastures like a champ! Lolz…just kidding.
ABC released statement saying the rumors were as false as most of the boobies interviewed on Live!, and Ryan couldn’t make it because he was up late pulling an all-nighter to prep for the show. It’s hard work, y’all! Or is it? A source pooh-poohed that excuse: “How much prep does he really need for ‘Live!’? It was really odd and confusing. It’s pretty obvious that she’s difficult to work with.” Fair, I mean, how much work goes into sipping a latte and pretending to be entertained by whatever Kelly did with her kids and Andy Cohen last weekend? But why is Ryan being such a pushover? He’s got that Idol, radio, AND Kardashian koin! Are those blonde highlights so expensive that he needs a Ripa allowance, too?!
