    an incident at Miami International Airport on Wednesday, February 8

    the "Wiggle" singer and his entourage of eight arrived late for a flight to L.A. on Wednesday afternoon and tried to check 19 bags.


    Resume of the incident
    Jason says he and his crew of 8 arrived at the airport for a flight to L.A. Wednesday afternoon when they tried checking nearly 20 bags. He says he’s a preferred flying member — Concierge Key — and almost always flies American, but the AA staffer was rude and said he couldn’t check his bags.

    We called around and it looks like Jason and crew may have arrived too late to check the bags, so a member of his team stayed behind and tried checking the bags on a later flight.

    That’s when all hell broke loose. By this time, Jason and his team were on the plane and it had pulled away from the gate. His cellphone rang, and the guy he left with the bags said AA wanted to charge him $6k for the excess luggage. Jason was outraged and demanded that the plane go back to the gate so he could get off.

    He says the pilot went nuts on him, and the cops were waiting as he got off. And, he says, if he wasn’t Jason Derulo and instead just a random black guy, he’d be in jail.




    jasonderulo.@americanair I spent millions on your airline throughout the past ten years between myself and my entire staff but have still experienced racial discrimination today at miami airport!!! Called 15 police officers on me as if I'm a criminal!

    how do you deal with a breakup, ONTD?

    Glee star Mark Salling, who was indicted last summer on federal child pornography charges, has failed to reach a plea agreement with prosecutors and it looks like he will now go on trial at the end of May.

    The judge in his case canceled a hearing two weeks ago after being informed that Salling's lawyers and prosecutors could not come to an agreement on a proposed plea deal. Salling reportedly was insisting on serving no prison time, while federal prosecutors were adamant that he spend time behind bars.

    Prosecutors and Salling's lawyers have jointly requested a trial date of May 30th. Prosecutors have stated in court papers that they have compiled 100,000 pages of evidence against him, including "several digital devices" found in his home with images and videos featuring children as young as five years old engaged in sexual acts.

    Salling faces a minimum of five years in prison if convicted at trial.

    After last night's episode of IASIP focused on Mac, Charlie Day gave some context on the decision.

    Mac came out for good after a long and involved arbitration process that had to do with a lottery scratcher and Frank using the f-slur.

    On the decision to have him come out, in an episode directed by Jamie Babbit of famous gay movie But I'm A Cheerleader, Charlie Day said it was partially based on the fan reaction to Mac coming out last year in "The Gang Goes To Hell" only to go back in the closet at the end of the episode. Fans were disappointed to see Mac finally come out and then quickly take it back.

    He added, "But I also think with what the sort of message is behind him making that decision, I think it actually does more sort of societal good to finally have Mac make that decision. So we decided, all right, let’s find a way to actually have that happen.”

    What did you think of the episode? Would you make a major life decision for a $10,000 lottery scratcher?

  • For the challenge this week, Ashley brought Amber Rose to talk about social issues and activism. They were broken up into two teams and were assigned to come up with a PSA for SlutWalk. The team that won was Tatiana, CoryAnne, and Courtney (despite two of them being at each other's throats the whole time) and their PSA will play at the next SlutWalk.

    For the photoshoot, they're assigned to take inspiration from a female icon - not to totally impersonate them, but to channel them in their modeling (except the styling is totally on the nose, but w/e). They were assigned as follows:





























    We got some semi-decent old school drama after the photo shoot with Courtney and Tatiana once again at each other's throats, over Courtney eating Tatiana's ice cream.

    So basically part of tonight's episode has Betty and Veronica getting revenge on Chuck for slut shaming Veronica. Which would seem to affirm some spoilers that came out before the pilot aired. Some things from the list were already confirmed, but others seemed way too crazy but look likely to be confirmed as well.

    As always, take these with a grain of salt.

    -Jughead is homeless and his estranged father (who will be played by Skeet Ulrich) is the leader of Riverdale's most notorious gang who Hiram Lodge hired to fuck up Riverdale in order to lower property prices so he could buy the town once he gets out of jail.


    -Betty has a dissociative state when she doesn't take her meds and begins calling herself "Polly" and dressing and acting like her. Dark Betty almost kills Chuck Clayton in episode 3 (possibly by almost boiling him???)

    -Dilton fired the gunshot that Archie and Grundy overheard because he was illegally training his scouts to shoot.

    -Miss Grundy isn't the real Miss Grundy. She's either a con woman who killed the old Miss Grundy or an abused woman trying to escape her husband who legally changed her name after her divorce. Betty will find this out in episode 4, and Archie does not take the news well


    -In episode 8, Betty/Jughead will start dating. Archie won't really mind because he's dating Valerie. (There have been leaked set photos and clips of these scenes so this is also confirmed)

    -Archie's dad is arrested for the murder when it's found that his gun was the murder weapon. This event is what brings Archie's mom (as played by Molly Ringwald) back into town.


    -Betty's dad killed Jason as revenge for Polly's breakdown. He framed Fred because of petty high school bullshit jealousy (Archie's dad rejected Betty's mom in high school, but she still has feelings for him)

    -The Blossoms were occultists and Jason attempted to fake his death to escape them. Polly had a breakdown after learning about the Blossoms's activities. Jason was supposed to contact Cheryl after he had found a place their parents couldn't find him.

    -Jughead finds out that there are legends of supernatural forces in the woods surrounding Riverdale and that innocent blood spilled on Sweetwater Lake is said to be the key to awaken powerful forces. It is made clear that Jason being killed and dumped in Sweetwater Lake wan an unintentional yet perfect reproduction of the ritual.

    -Final scene of the season is Sabrina ominiously arriving at Pop's shop while Jughead reads about the results of the ritual in voice-over and how "chaos follows". She introduces herself and immediately afterwards there's a car crash just outside. Everyone steps outside to help while Sabrina flashes a smile.

    So in conclusion have some original music from the show's version of Josie and the Pussycats from tonight's episode

    • The story is about two German teenagers, one the daughter of a black father and white mother and the other the son of a nazi officer, who fall in love

    • Amma Asante (Belle, A United Kingdom) wrote and directed. Asante on the film: It has been a passion of mine to tell this story for many years — to shine a light on the existence of German children of color who were forced to grow up under Hitler’s rule, labelled as ‘Rhineland bastards.

    A good romance book can make you laugh or cry, can lift your spirits and inspire you. As author Kristan Higgins put it, "romance authors offer readers an emotional experience that mirrors an elemental desire in life: to find a constant and loving companion; to become our best selves; to forgive our mistakes of the past and learn from them".

    So to celebrate Valentine's Day, here is a list of romance recs - while I can't guarantee you will like everything (taste being personal and all), they are all nice romantic fun times, no weird stuff.


    This list is really about F/M romance, since I don't read enough LGBT romance to be able to make good recs, but I've collected some lists if you want to check them out: WLW, WLW, WLW, LGBT, F/F and M/M, LGBT, lesbian and gay holiday romance, "beyond gay and lesbian", M/M lists, LGBT lists. I'm sure lots of ONTDers can give you a more specific rec in the comments as well!

    In terms of classic romance books, you really cannot go wrong with the good sis Jane Austen. Her books are romantic and really funny and social critiques. While most people know Pride & Prejudice,Emma, and Sense & Sensibility, you really want to give Persuasion (considered by many the best Austen), Northanger Abbey and even Mansfield Park a try (the "aunt's nephew"-loving crowd on ONTD will get a kick out of the latter).

    And then there's North & South by Elizabeth Gaskell, which is kind of a retelling of Pride & Prejudice set during the Industrial Revolution. It is gorgeous, and perfect for the more socially-conscious reader. (The adaptation with Richard Armitage is also to die for. And if you read the book and picture Richard Armitage it's even better, then again so are most things).

    Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, of course, is a big fave. Jane is an incredible character and the book is a lot less stuffy than you'd think given the moody adaptations it gets - Jane is one sassy bish and Mr. Rochester is just... so extra.

    Not every romance has a happy ending, and the beautiful The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton is proof. An absolute must-read.

    Hello, Georgette Heyer! Her books have a pretty genuine Jane Austen feel, as Heyer was actually a near-obsessive researcher of the Regency period - it takes a bit getting used to all the Regency jargon she uses, but then you miss it if you read a historical by anyone else (here is a helpful dictionary, and here is a whole book of background to her novels). Heyer is an absolute RIOT, her books are often hilarious and full of people shooting at each other, cross-dressing, dueling with swords, gambling, going to disreputable parties, and generally having a very exciting time. And even though these books were written ages ago her heroines are way more spirited than the wet rags you find in romance everywhere today.

    She wrote SO many novels, but you can start with Faro's Daughter (Pride and Prejudice on crack), Venetia (badass spinster meets reluctant rake), Devil's Cub (love-hate relationship; strong-minded heroine does not take any bullshit from the rakish hero), Frederica (hero is older than the heroine - I thought I'd be skeeved out but it works), The Masqueraders (more adventure, plus cross-dressing), Cotillion (more comedy, plus a fake engagement), A Civil Contract (more drama, plus an arranged marriage).

    When it comes to modern authors who write Regency romance, Tessa Dare is here for your light, fun, romantic comedy needs. If you aren't a stickler about historical detail, you'll enjoy her stuff. Her Castles Ever After series (Romancing the Duke; Say Yes to the Marquess; When a Scot Ties the Knot) is 100% gold, guaranteed to make you happy. The Spindle Cove series takes place in a village retreat for unusual ladies and is AMAZING. This series is pretty feminist, especially in A Night to Surrender with its take-charge heroine and (my fave) A Week to be Wicked, where the heroine is based on paleonthologist Mary Anning. A Lady by Midnight is for fans of broody heroes, Beauty and the Blacksmith is sexy as hale, and Any Duchess Will Do will probably make you cry. Also try Goddess of the Hunt from her earlier stuff.

    Lisa Kleypas is another heavy-hitter in Regency (and slightly later) romance. Her Hathaways series is all good, particularly if you like books about big, united families (but the best one is Love in the Afternoon with its animal-loving heroine and the traumatised soldier hero). From her Wallflowers series you wanna read Scandal in Spring and Devil in Winter (do NOT read the Summer and Autumn books. Especially Autumn because it ruins the hero of Winter). Lady Sophia's Lover is also a good one from her earlier stuff.

    Courtney Milan writes Victorian romances, and they are incredibly rich, with interesting characters and original plots. Milan, a WOC, deals head-on with the misogyny and racism of the time period. Her heroines are strong and smart, her heroes are not at all like the alpha idiots in most books out there. Start with the Brothers Sinister series. The Duchess War is the perfect starter book for both Milan and historical romance in general; The Heiress Effect has a pretty fantastic heroine and a working-class hero (and an Indian hero in the excellent subplot); The Countess Conspiracy has a scientist heroine!!!; in The Suffragette Scandal the heroine is a suffragette (obvs) and there is a lesbian subplot. The novellas are also pretty great: The Governess Affair, A Kiss for Midwinter, and my fave, Talk Sweetly to Me (black scientist heroine and a feminist hero). The Turner series is also good - but you gotta read it in order, and the first one (Unveiled) is not the best. It's still worth it because Unclaimed (virgin hero, courtesan heroine) and Unraveled (a lower-class heroine and an uptight magistrate hero) are fantastic. (So is Unlocked, but that is stand-alone).

    Also try Eloisa James' hilarious Beauty & The Beast / House crossover, When Beauty Tamed the Beast; Eva Ibbotson's charming early 20th century romance A Countess Below Stairs; Caroline Linden's Love and Other Scandals; Mary Balogh's lovely marriage of convenience story Slightly Married; Julia Quinn's suuuper cute Just Like Heaven; Jennifer Ashley's sexy The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie. The post-World War II The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer is a beautiful, lovely epistolary novel with a nice romantic storyline.

    The Hating Game by Sally Thorne is an excellent rom-com of workplace enemies-to-lovers. If you want a nice, funny, sexy romance, you won't go wrong with this one. Similarly, Lucy Parker'sAct Like It is a pretty funny "fake relationship" romance where two West End actors who don't particularly like each other have to engage in a PR relationship for the sake of their play.

    I'm a big fan of Attachments, Rainbow Rowell's contemporary adult novel set around Y2K. The premise - IT guy is hired by a newspaper to go through employees' company emails to see if anyone's using them for inappropriate purposes, ends up falling in love with the movie critic from reading her convos with her friend - might skeeve out some readers, but I thought the weirdness was addressed in the book and, personally, didn't have much of a problem with it.

    If you like rom-coms, you of course have to read Sophie Kinsella, who has written faves like Can You Keep a Secret? (her best imo), Remember Me, The Undomestic Goddess, Twenties Girl, and The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic. Sophie can do rom-com without making her protagonists stupid, desperate or sexist charicatures, and she is really funny. Her books are perfect feel-good reads.

    YA queen Meg Cabot also writes the occasional adult romance, with the Boy series (yes, adult in spite of the name). Boy Meets Girl and TheBoy Next Door are light, fun reads. Also try Graeme Simsion rom-com The Rosie Project.

    Big fan of 10 Things I Hate About You? There's a new modern adaptation of The Taming of the Shrew out there, and it's Vinegar Girl, by Anne Tyler. It's funny, it's clever, it's bittersweet. (It's not a romance-romance like the others in this list, but I think it still counts).

    As a HUGE Laura Florand fan, I am going to point you towards her Amour et Chocolat and La Vie en Roses series. If you're into chocolate, fields of roses, Paris, the Provence, and hunky guys, don't be surprised if you get addicted to them. Some of her books are very much rom-coms (The Chocolate Thief, the novella All's Fair in Love and Chocolate, Once Upon a Rose), some are delicious dramas (The Chocolate Temptation, The Chocolate Touch) and there are even some fairy-tale inspired stories (The Chocolate Kiss borrows from Rapunzel, The Chocolate Rose from Beauty and the Beast). If you're looking for a laugh, definitely go for Thief first, but her best romance overall is, in my opinion, The Chocolate Temptation, which I can't recommend enough.

    In Trade Me by Courtney Milan, a hot tech billionaire offers to "trade lives" with his struggling classmate. Sure, it is wish-fulfillment, but it has a lot of heart and it is very genuine in dealing with real, serious problems.

    Lisa Kleypas also writes contemporary romances, and also does the billionaire thing. The Travis series is focused on a family of Houston billionaires (a father, a daughter, and 3 sons), and they make for some delicious wish-fulfillment reading. In Sugar Daddy, the romance is actually a pretty secondary plot, and the book focuses a lot more on the life struggles of the strong-minded and hard-working Latina heroine (in spite of the title, the romance isn't a real sugar daddy situation, don't get too excited wavvy). Blue-Eyed Devil deals with domestic violence so it is a heavier read, and Smooth-Talking Stranger tackles emotional abuse by a parent.

    Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier is a wonderful take on Beauty & the Best, the fantasy is beautifully woven and any romance fan should be left in tears by the end. If you like this one, try Grace Draven's stuff: Entreat Me (another Beauty & the Beast retelling), Master of Crows (both the heroine and the hero are wizards), and Radiance (the hero is, um, a different species; I promise it's not weird though).

    Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt is a gorgeous, heartbreaking dark fairy tale and WILL make you cry.

    Deathless by Catherynne M. Valente is a dark romance set in Revolutionary Russia and populated with various Russian myths. If you're into Slavic folklore try also the magic-filled Uprooted by Naomi Novik (this is only problematic if you get caught up in the fact that the Dragon is an immortal, so, technically pretty old - personally I didn't have a problem with it).

    If you're looking for something lighter, go with The Princess Bride by William Goldman and Stardust by Neil Gaiman, fairytale-like adventures. The excellent and fast-paced sci-fi rom-com Crosstalk by Connie Willis will have you on the edge of your seat.

    Kids these days just don't read enough Meg Cabot, but they SHOULD. She wrote the lovely Princess Diaries series (of terrible Disney adaptations), the fun All-American Girl series (at least, the first one was good), plus the amazing The Mediator series (still the only YA book with a good Latino hero I've ever read, and he's a ghost). Under no circumstances read the recently-published additions to the Mediator series - pretend it ends with the original 6-book run!

    Cassandra Rose Clarke wrote a pretty fun YA fantasy/romance duology: The Assassin's Curse and The Pirate's Wish. If you dig pirates, assassins, and sassy talking manticores, that should be a fun pick.

    Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is a very sweet romance, with an interesting heroine and super nice hero - not a monster jerk like the fashion is these days. For that I will always recommend it.
