-Toby Willis of "The Willis Family" (a fundie family with 12 kids, who also sing!) was arrested and charged with raping a child yesterday.
-He allegedly had an encounter with an underaged girl 12 years ago.
-The show was already cancelled back in May.
- The series is based on journalist Tim Reiterman's 1982 book, Raven: The Untold Story of Jim Jones and His People, based on the life of Jim Jones and his church/cult, Peoples Temple
- Reiterman was one of the journalists who accompanied Senator Leo Ryan to Jonestown in November of 1978 and survived the airstrip massacre
- Octavia Spencer, who bought the rights to the book, will serve as executive producer.
- While there have been several well-done documentaries about Jonestown in recent years (The Life and Death of Peoples Temple is among the best), the last drama adaptation of Jonestown was the 1980 Guyana Tragedy, starring Powers Boothe as Jim Jones.
ontd what's your favorite cult story
The victim-playing pop star has headed back into the studio, Gigi Hadid confirmed to ET.
So much for that break you spoke of!
Are you excited for Taylor's Perfect Illusion, ONTD?
-- Game of Thrones won 26 Emmys during the course of its first 5 seasons, tying it with Hill Street Blues and The West Wing as the most awarded Drama programs in Emmy history.
-- The show now stands solo as the most awarded drama ever after winning 9 awards tonight at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony.
-- Its 9 wins tonight also breaks the record for most Creative Arts Emmy wins in a single year, surpassing the record it broke last year.
-- The show is up for 9 awards next week during the Primetime ceremony in 5 categories. It will only need to win in 4 of those categories to break its own record for most wins for a single season (and thats not totally impossible either).
-- Fraiser is the most Emmy awarded series with 37 but that won't last much longer. GOT is now at 35. (SNL has the most in total but the TV Academy considers it a Variety Program and not a Series~)
this show is unstoppable
Just one day after posting two vaguely remorseful statuses on facebook, Azealia Banks took to social media to question those who vilified her usage of a certain derogatory word:
Society still has not and will not answer my questions as to why nigger and dyke are accepted parts of english's colloquial lexicon but the other word is not.
Why can someone colloquially be called a nigger but not colloquially be called the other thing?
Society still has yet to address that sector white male privilege.
Trust me, I'm not not typing it because I "realize how much the word hurts" I'm not typing it because I don't care to deal with the type of people who usually come out to call me an ignorantcuntniggerbitch whilst trying to fight for the right to control my language and actions. These people usually shout and scream that it is not my place to give words other meanings, yet have no problem jamming along to songs in which I say nigger, by telling themselves that it's okay because I'm black and black people have re-claimed the word. These are the same people who have no problem calling me a bitch out of anger, then use the word bitch colloquially to refer to women.
Does anyone else see the hypocrisy?
Does anyone else see that I have been punished for nothing?
Is there a difference between Mac hiring a white artist who also admits to "re-claiming" the word which rhymes with maggot, dresses up in shitty drag and is the worst caricature of a gay man and canceling the release of my YUNG RAPUNXEL lipstick after having been belittled and attacked , called ghetto, ugly, and straight up insulted by a life size pig to which I insulted him back?
Is MAC cosmetics hypocritical for that? Does white priviledge have anything to do with it?
Does MAC cosmetics owe me a MAJOR apology ?
yes they do.
To be honest by dumbass has continued to use their products but the other day I was drawing in an eyebrow with the shit and almost threw up. (huh???)
I would love all of the Kunt Brigades help in boycotting MAC cosmetics.
We should not buy where we will not be hired.
She just had to make this about herself instead of owning up to her past shit. What a damn mess.

-Was written with Britney's life in mind: We love how Britney’s gone through all her phases, and hair colors, and literally, like, mood swings. Her whole life is like a mood ring.
-Acapella sat for three months until Mustard created a beat and reached out to Brit who loved it.
-They've got more songs lined up for when she's ready to record again (Approx 10)

Hidden Figures screened 30 minutes of the film plus had a Q&A earlier today with its stars. Reaction to the footage was quite positive:
HIDDEN FIGURES: Based on the 30 minutes screened, this movie is going to be a huge commercial hit. Could find some awards love too. #TIFF— Glenn Whipp (@GlennWhipp) September 10, 2016
Saw about 20 min of Hidden Figures. Gonna be a big hit. #TIFF— Gregory Ellwood (@TheGregoryE) September 10, 2016
Just watched a bunch of scenes from HIDDEN FIGURES. Pretty sure Janelle Monae's prints are on 'em because she steals every last one.— Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) September 10, 2016
25 minutes of #HiddenFigures footage shown. Looks pretty damn good. Cast is magic— Andrea Mandell (@AndreaMandell) September 10, 2016
HIDDEN FIGURES: footage looks fab Very inspiring true story about African American women working at NASA. Inspiring! pic.twitter.com/YMBaBi1UNy— Alicia Malone (@aliciamalone) September 10, 2016
Article from THR on the Q&A: It all went smashingly well for Hidden Figures, which Melfi said he made "in the hope [the central trio of women] will be hidden no more." The clips looked quite polished and played very well, with several of them — and the trailer that came at the end — receiving applause.... Henson then turned serious, saying she hoped the movie would "give hope to people to dream a different dream," and noting, "If I'd known about these women coming up, maybe I'd have aspired to be a rocket scientist." Spencer pointed out, "No women were mentioned in Apollo 13," and then broke down: "I'm sad that Dorothy [Vaughn, her character] and Mary [Jackson, Monae's character] can't see this day, but I'm proud that Katherine Johnson [Henson's character, who is 98] will." Henson added, "This movie represents what she should be thinking about right now. We need it right now.">
Meanwhile, Queen of Katwe officially premiered tonight (Lupita looked incredible, as expected).
Wept like a goof at the end of QUEEN OF KATWE. What a nice movie.— Richard Lawson (@rilaws) September 10, 2016
QUEEN OF KATWE: A passionate film about the power of perseverance. Just got a standing ovation and it's gala. Kudos to Mira Nair. #TIFF16— Tara Deschamps (@tara_deschamps) September 11, 2016
QUEEN OF KATWE: A genuinely inspiring crowdpleaser thanks to great work from Nyong'o and Oyelowo and Nair's clear love of country.— Brian Tallerico (@Brian_Tallerico) September 11, 2016
Wishing that QUEEN OF KATWE transcended its syrupy motivational drama to a unique cinematic piece of work.— Vince Lao (@vincentlao18)
Geoff Berkshire/Variety: “Queen of Katwe” doesn’t veer from the family-friendly inspirational sports movie playbook — there’s a plucky protagonist looking for a way out, a hardworking single mom concerned about false hopes, a committed coach seeking personal redemption. But the Disney release from veteran helmer Mira Nair is quietly radical in enough ways to make you cheer despite the cliches... the film’s strongest assets are undoubtedly its actors. Nalwanga is a natural, and if she’s a bit too mature to credibly play Phiona in the film’s earliest scenes, the authenticity and spirit she brings to her character’s empowering journey mitigate any quibbles. Oyelowo further establishes himself as one of today’s finest leading men, bringing deep emotional reserves, an innate sense of goodness, and a playful side that earn Robert a memorable place in the substantial canon of onscreen coaches. Rounding out the principal trio, Nyong’o is simply radiant in her first live action role since winning an Oscar for “12 Years a Slave.” She imbues what could have been a stock mother figure with such inner fire that Harriet feels worthy of a movie all her own. And the most exciting thing about seeing a film like “Queen of Katwe” come out of a major Hollywood studio is that that idea suddenly seems a little more possible.
Screen Daily/Tim Grierson: Queen Of Katwe tells a potentially touching story in the stodgiest of ways, its recounting of the journey of a young Ugandan chess prodigy sensitively rendered but also far too formulaic. Perhaps it’s simplistic to say that director Mira Nair has fashioned a good-looking but Disney-fied version of actual events, and yet the studio’s predictably uplifting-at-all-costs blandness slowly but methodically drains the material of its richness.
Sheri Linden/The Hollywood Reporter: Hits every note of plucky positivity so squarely on the head that it leaves little room for audience involvement.
Finally, while already sitting on an 89% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes (76 on metacritic), The Handmaiden was a feature presentation, so here's a couple reactions out of Toronto to it as well:
THE HANDMAIDEN ('16, Park) - A kinky psychosexual thriller inside a mystery box. Dig this, see this, I urge you. I LOVED IT.— Vince Lao (@vincentlao18) September 11, 2016
The Verge/Emily Yoshida: ... There is a deep, festering malady at the heart of The Handmaiden, exacerbated by idle fantasy, cultural projection and denial. The men who torment the female heroines do so because they hate some part of themselves — a part of themselves they've been made to hate by circumstances larger than themselves... The consensual scenes are executed with joy and creativity, if voyeuristically. But the hottest scene in the whole film is probably its tamest, involving little more than a thimble and a tooth. It's a reminder that Park doesn't need to bring the X-rated fireworks to still be capable of producing edge-of-your-seat tension out of shared glances, and the deceptive simplicity of a good edit. The Handmaiden's puzzle-like plot makes such fine-tuning look easy. But many of its more difficult thematic questions are left provocatively unanswered.
The movie is based on the play 'Blackbird'. From IMBD: "When a young woman unexpectedly arrives at an older man's workplace, looking for answers, the secrets of the past threaten to unravel his new life. Their confrontation will uncover buried memories and unspeakable desires. It will shake them both to the core."
Last night Katy Perry went on an epic Tweeting binge, replying to random stans and throwing shade left and right. Just some of the artists she tweets about include Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Kanye, and Beyonce.
