Leslie Jones’ Omarosa Crashes ‘Saturday Night Live’ and Refuses to Leave Without a Fight

Leslie Jones’ Omarosa Crashes ‘Saturday Night Live’ and Refuses to Leave Without a Fight
Saturday Night Live” had its fun with Omarosa Manigault Newman during the Kevin Hart-hosted Christmas episode, having cast member Leslie Jones play the former director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison in two different appearances throughout the night. The show’s point was hilariously clear: Omarosa isn’t going to leave the public spotlight without a fight.

Jones’ Omarosa first appeared in the opening night sketch, which featured Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump and Cecily Strong’s Melania hanging ornaments of Trump’s disgraced former staffers. Something was banging on the window outside the White House, and it turned out to be a very pissed off Omarosa.

Mimi O’Donnell Opens Up about Phillip Seymour Hoffman

Hollywood has definitely seen better days, with all the sexual misconduct scandals that are current raging, something that has sort of muffled the sounds of a common theme in the history of the world of entertainment and fame. The list of entertainers and famous celebrities that died well before their time is definitely too long to recite, but names like Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, River Phoenix, and Michael Jackson come to mind. It seems that some of most talented of our celebrities are the most troubled. And while many people seek fame, very few are emotionally and psychologically equipped to

What is Red Nose Day?

For an individual who spends a great deal of my time involved in media, in one way or another, I am constantly bombarded with all types of issues that people want to discuss. However, one topic that people attempt to avoid like the plague is poverty. No one wants to talk about poverty, and absolutely no one wants to talk about child poverty. You see, talking about it makes it real and it makes it difficult for people to pretend that it does not exist. Admitting that the richest nation on earth has a massive issue with poverty just doesn’t

Dustin Hoffman’s Past Keeps Getting Worse and Worse

Dustin Hoffman’s name has been popping up in the news more and more in recent times.

2017 in Review: Best Reunions — Boy Meets World, Roseanne and More

2017 in Review: Best Reunions — Boy Meets World, Roseanne and More
2017 may not have succeeded at unifying us as a country, but at least it brought some of our favorite TV duos back together.

Whether it was two actors re-teaming for a new project (like Ken Jeong did on Dr. Ken with two former Community stars) or two actors reprising roles they once played years earlier (like the leading ladies of Raven’s Home or the men of Psych: The Movie), 2017 was a very good year for people who enjoy recognizing familiar pairings.

(Disclaimer: Despite Will & Grace premiering in 2017, the cast technically reunited one year earlier for that mini election episode,

Wonder Wheel is Proof Woody Allen Can’t Stand Aging Women

Woody Allen’s latest movie, Wonder Wheel, has been thrashed by critics as one of his worst efforts. Allen, now 82, seems hell bent on coming out with a new movie every year, but this is one of those years he should give considerable thought to stop the spinning wheel of movie production and realize it just may be time to be happy with his successes. He has a storied career and has nothing to apologize for – unless he continues making movies. The current #metoo movement has re-lit the smoldering embers that were dimly seen for more than 20 years.

Classic Eddie Murphy Movie “48 Hrs” is Getting a Remake

In the late 1980s, Eddie Murphy was really hitting his stride in the comedy world. With some very successful standup specials and some blockbuster films under his belt, he seemed like he was in just about every movie that Hollywood was putting out. So where did audiences first get a chance to really see Murphy in a comedy role? That would be his portrayal of recently paroled Reggie Hammond who is reluctantly forced into helping a cop to catch a serial killer. This film, entitled 48 Hrs., stars both Murphy and Nick Nolte as the unlikely duo to help solve

Donald Trump Tweets Gop Having Good Year, Will “Do Well In 2018”

President Donald Trump, still smarting over Trump-backed Roy Moore’s stunning defeat in Alabama, tweeted this morning the Gop is having a good year: “Remember, Republicans are 5-0 in Congressional Races this year.
