It's my understanding that Zendaya as MJ was essentially planned to be an end-of-movie reveal in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING... oh well!— Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) August 18, 2016
That said, when I was told the particulars of the Zendaya/MJ reveal in the movie, I grinned. Wonder if they'll stick to 'em now— Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) August 18, 2016

I'M SO READY FOR THE FANBOYS TO START WHINING AND CRYING!
-Heard said she’s donating half of the settlement to American Civil Liberties Union, “with a particular focus to stop violence against women"
-Also to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, where she has worked as a volunteer for the past ten years.
-She said “As described in the restraining order and divorce settlement, money played no role for me personally and never has, except to the extent that I could donate it to charity and, in doing so, hopefully help those less able to defend themselves,”
-She is donating the entire 7 million
-ACLU and the Hospital issued statements thanking her for her generosity.
I do hope she did not feel the need to do this to prove that she's not a gold digger or whatever, generous as it is. She deserved it for having had to deal with that idiot Johnny.

Sorry I missed last night's post, I was out of town last minute! :)
-Sam/Renee/Bear are given a challenge where they can't get distracted
-CBB brings in Sams mom, a stripper for Renee, and Bears ex-gf
-Bears Ex-GF gives an emotional speech which leads to Bear placing the blame on her after she leaves
-Aubrey/Rickey are given a task to count sheep without getting distracted
-To distract A/R, CBB has a video message from Pauly D where he gives his love to Aubrey, calling her his wife. Rickeys best friend has a message for him. Aubrey fails the challenge while Rickey passes.
-Frankie does an embarrassing striptease
-Renee/Marnie/Aubrey discuss how Lewis is into himself
-Marnie fails her challenge due to being distracted by her cousin
-Ricky/Bear tell it like it is
- After they spent the afternoon deposing before police and confessed that the robbery story was a lie, Rio police and a Brazilian judge returned their passports and they are now free to leave the country
- Bentz and Congler did NOT file a false police report, unlike Ryan Lochte and James Feigen, who DID and have been formally INDICTED. None were indicted for the crime of damaging private property, as the gas station owner has so far declined to press charges
- Bentz and Congler left the police station under the boos of several pissed off Brazilians, who screamed "SHAME", "LIARS", APOLOGIZE" in a veritable Walk of Shame moment. You can watch the video HERE(another angle below)

- Rio's police chief, Fernando Veloso, wants the swimmers to apologize to the locals from Rio for destroying property, behaving aggressively and lying, and to the police for claiming that they were robbed by police officers.
- Police is looking for the women who were partying/hooking up with the athletes in that fateful night. They are considered witnesses in the case.
On Tuesday British track cyclist Laura Trott won her second women's omnium title and a short while later her fiance Jason Kenny won the keirin, bringing their tally to 5 golds for this games (#14 on medal table) and 10 in total (Jason also has a silver from Beijing). 11.m viewers watched him win the keirin in a fairly dramatic race.
- Laura's 4th gold (2 in London) made her the 2nd most successful female cyclist in Olympic history and most successful British woman. She broke a world record last week as part of team pursuit.
- Jason's 6th gold made him joint most successful British Olympian and 27th on all time list. He set a new Olympic record on his sprint qualification lap.

New details around actor and director Nate Parker’s involvement in a 1999 rape case shed a harsh light on the Hollywood apparatus that attempts to soften past transgressions in the name of art, awards, and, above all, profits.
Searchlight underestimated Twitter; Deadline assumed it could editorialize; Parker thought he could "move on" Wrong: https://t.co/r3tTR9rOOC— Anne Helen Petersen (@annehelen) 18 de agosto de 2016
Article highlights the words used by Deadline and Variety on their stories about Nate Parker and how they were used to push a narrative to help the movie during awards season:
"Parker repeatedly emphasizes just how difficult the memory was; in both tellings, he pauses as he recounts the incident. In Deadline: “I stand here, a 36-year-old man, 17 years removed from one of the most painful … [he wells up at the memory] moment in my life. In Variety: “The reality is” — he took a long silence — “I can’t relive 17 years ago. All I can do is be the best man I can be now.” Apart from the repeated emphasis on “17 years ago,” which works to distance him from the allegations, the accounting of the scene can either be read as an accounting of genuine emotion or, less generously, as stage direction."
Anne Helen even credits Oh No They Didn’t in breaking the story about the involvement of Nate Parker in a rape case:
"No trade or mainstream press around the debut of Birth of a Nation included the details of the rape allegations and trial that spanned Parker’s sophomore and junior years at Penn State, from 1999 to 2001. Instead, details of the event resurfaced the way scandal so often does: through the gossip press, where the Cosby allegations also percolated for years. Here they arrived through Oh No They Didn’t, a popular user-run-and-vetted site and one of the most influential blogs to emerge and challenge the mainstream publicity apparatus in the mid-2000s."
She also compares Parker’s case to Allen and Polanski, and the context and perceptions around it:
1.) That the allegations against Allen and Polanski arrived after they had established themselves as behemoths of Hollywood art cinema, not as they were attempting to do so.
2.) That during and after the allegations, neither Allen nor Polanski starred in their films, only directed them, and thus were not the public face of their films.

Kendall Jenner -- Extra Security After Stalker Scare https://t.co/VCmBpLbMhM— TMZ (@TMZ) August 19, 2016
-Kendall Jenner was granted a temporary restraining order against her long time stalker, Shavaughn McKenzie. Before she moved into her new home, he had shown up at her apartment building several times.
-In a previous incident, he ran into traffic to chase her car as she drove away.
-On Sunday, he was waiting for her by her gate as she pulled into her property. He followed her past the gate and Kendall got back in her car and called Irving Azoff who called the police. The stalker banged on Kendall's car, and she drove off to meet up with friends outside of the property.
-Kendall's statement: "As a result of Mr. McKenzie's repeated harassment and stalking of me, I fear for my life and have suffered, and continue to suffer, emotional distress.
-TMZ reports that she has hired even more security to patrol her yard and sit outside of her home.

If you’re complaining about the ethnicity of Mary Jane your life is too good. https://t.co/b6XDUpRQ3i— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) August 19, 2016
Since it has been revealed that Zendaya could possibly be Mary Jane in Spiderman: Homecoming a lot of negative and of course racist comments have been circulating around the internet. James Gunn who is usually outspoken about Marvel news decided to give his two cents about the news. Dan Slott who is a comic book writer for Marvel currently helming the ongoing Amazing Spider-Man series also shared his thoughts:
Heroes & great characters come in every color— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) August 19, 2016
& they are for EVERYONE.
There's nothing about Peter Parker or Mary Jane
that HAS to be white.
There's 50+ years of a white Peter Parker & a white Mary Jane.— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) August 19, 2016
Those comics/movies aren't being burned or erased.
It's ok to share the toys.
I really hope Zendaya is Mary Jane and never gets red hair just to piss off the fanboys who thinks her hair color is a "defining character trait"

The government of Rio de Janeiro released a PSA saying: "Don't pull a Ryan Lochte. Falsely reporting a crime IS A CRIME". Notice how they @ the athlete.
- Brazilians are not pleased by his non-apology and are letting him know on social media
- Police Chief Alexandre Braga, one of the high-level officers handling the case, told Brazilian news that Lochte's apology is "full of euphemisms", "appears to be something targeted more towards his sponsors than to be an actual retraction", and includes a "fantasy version of events"
- It has been revealed by the swimmers Bentz and Conger, in their statements to police, that the robbery lie was cooked up in order to "save the relationship" of one of the 4 swimmers, as one of them (it is unclear at this point who) cheated on his gf. It has been confirmed by police that the swimmers were hooking up with women that night, and police have already talked to the cab driver who drove the women home.
- Ryan Lochte has a girlfriend, who incidentally was in Rio that night but NOT with the swimmers - she chose to stay at her hotel instead of going out.
- This has been confirmed by Brazilian media. The prosecutors wanted him to pay R$ 150.000,00, but the judge disagreed and put the fine at R$ 35.000,00, so they say they will appeal. It will likely go nowhere as Feigen has already paid the fined and showed proof to authorities, gotten his passport back and been cleared to return to the US.
