After making a grand entrance Brooke's Bedroom line is on top of the world. As Brooke as the spokesperson she finally gets the last laugh on Taylor. Look for Brooke to use it to the max to gain control of Forresters again and Brooke is making it known by giving press conferences and hiring new people. Brooke is in her element as she shows just how powerful and popular she still is.
Things really get tense between Katie and Bill as she tries to believe him when he said nothing happened between him and Brooke despite her walking in on the two in a compromising situation.
Rick and Maya get closer as she finally decides to give the Forrester heir a chance, but this time, no more secrets. Caroline doesn't cotton to that too well and she lets Maya have a warning. Something tells me the little spoiled rich girl needs to watch what she does and says around a street smart girl from the 'hood.
We'll have a wedding in a few weeks and it's not going to be who you think it is. Let's just say this one should bring some tears.
It saddens me this new regime are going backwards with Michael and Lauren. Why do writers and TPTB not appreciate that a couple can be happy? Yes yes I know boring but can't we have one couple happy?
Could Alex and Adrianna be playing Kay, who seems to be forgetting things. Does Paul even have a clue this might be happening?
Glad to see Paul has a new story coming, but Police Chief? Wasn't he in jail for murder not long ago. I hope this new job means more screen time for him. Wonder if he will be retiring that briefcase.
So much build to Nikki and Victor's wedding they get married but the wedding reception is still going on a week later? Y&R only airs three days this week because of NCAA basketball. But even that is quite a long time to focus on a wedding/reception. Oh yea right it's Nikki and Victor.
DOOL has fallen flat on its face and I for one have been very very bored, there seems to be nothing that is exciting. What happened to this show? Brady has had enough of his parents butting into his life and tells them to back off. This will cause trouble in paradise for Marlena and John. Gee no surprise there. So what does Brady do? Proposes to Kristen. Really dude? Kristen who is more then thrilled causes more distance between Brady and his Dad. John is one not to let it go and is very strong minded than ever to break Kristen’s hold over his son and will not let this slide. But how far will he go to succeed in his mission?
Nick's mouth gets him in deep dodo when he makes a smart remark and gets him a right hook straight to his fave. Better think twice my man before calling someone names.
Is there a new man coming into Nicole's life?
The Nurse's Ball is gearing up and it has started taping scenes already. You will be watching more then just the ball when other events happen in and outside of the event. The action behind the stage will hold a deadly nature. I do hear "The Ice Princess" revisit is gearing up, and since Julie Berman has left the building in order to make the transition easier for viewers Lulu will go missing, but before that actually happens another package arrives for Lulu that her Aunt Bobbie allegedly sent, but Luke and Lulu are skeptical. Meanwhile at GH, Olivia has a vision and urges Dante to go home. Lulu ends up mysteriously gone, and just about everybody comes together at the loft to mount a search strategy to look for Lulu. Not sure how long Lulu will be missing but when she does return she will be played by Emme Rylan.
Sam decides to go searching for her biological father because she is missing Jason and realizing Danny will grow up without his father, RC is committed to resolve the mystery of Sam's father and that reveal is coming. There will be at least two characters who know the true identity of Sam's father. I am guessing Helena is one.
Dr. Britt Westbourne is in for a huge scolding when Britt finally faces the wrath of Epiphany, as the true extent of her plans against Sabrina are laid out in full and gloriously damning relief. Epiphany, being no fool, had the entire incident investigated by Spinelli.
Sources tell me that Johnny goes out a redeemed hero and BB is very satisfied with this exit, he saves Kristina at Pentonville and if I am hearing correctly she decides to leave town after.
The tale of the two long lost Quartermaines is staring to make waves.
What if Dr. Britt meets up with a doc from Switzerland? What can she use to make Sabrina's life more miserable?
What could happen that could finally give Anna back her fighting spirit?
Possible Kentucky Senate candidate Ashley Judd has an "unnerving""obsession" with rape, according to a conservative comedian who performed at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday. Fox News contributor Steven Crowder was winding up his monologue from CPAC's main stage when he decided to mock Judd's suggestion that people who use high-tech appliances (herself included) are indirectly contributing to human rights abuses:
By the way, in breaking news, Ashley Judd just tweeted that buying Apple products, again, is akin to rape. From her iPhone. Rape—now she knows how my brain felt after Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Oh, she said it. What is this obsession with Ashley Judd and rape? It's pretty unnerving.
Here's one reason why Ashley Judd talks about rape a lot: She is, in her own words, "a three-time survivor of rape." (I didn't have to look very hard for that; she talked about it at length in a nationally televised public appearance last month.) Talking about it is not just part of the recovery process—Judd feels it's her obligation: "I gave that shame back, and it's my job to break my isolation and talk with other girls and other women." That's also, not coincidentally, a large part of what she does internationally as a public health activist. There is literally a chapter in her memoir called "The Republic of Rape." It's about the Democratic of Republic of Congo, of which she has reported, "100 percent of the women I had interviewed had been gang-raped multiple times by armed militia."
On top of all of this, the original joke doesn't even make sense. Crowder's punch-line is that Judd is oblivious to the obvious hypocrisy of condemning Apple products while using them. What an idiot! But Judd's comments came in a long essay (not a tweet) about the angst she felt about using products that came from conflict zones.
Given the physical and emotional trauma experienced by countless women on a daily basis, it's not especially surprising that Judd is "obsessed" with rape; the better question is why Steven Crowder isn't.
i know this the least of anyone's priorities when it comes to political affiliations, but progressives >>>>>> conservatives just cuz our comedians are better. look at how threatened they are when she hasn't announced her run.
The race is on between Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox, who are competing to produce two big-budget movies both set around the Bible. While the Warner Bros. project, “Gods and Kings,” remains without a director (the film just lost legendary director Steven Spielberg, though “Life of Pi” director Ang Lee may take over), however, Fox’s “Exodus,” directed by Ridley Scott, is already in its casting phase.
Deadline is reporting that “Batman” trilogy actor Christian Bale has been tapped to play the film’s lead, Moses. Talks between Bale and producers are still in early stages, however. Steve Zaillian, the screenwriter for Scott’s “American Gangster,” will rewrite the script originally penned by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage.
Deadline speculates as to why the production studios are suddenly so focused on the story of the Bible:
“Fox and Paramount have surely noticed the ratings on History Channel’s ‘The Bible’ miniseries. There is certainly a global audience for a retelling of the Moses story with the technological advancements made since Charlton Heston played him in the 1956 ’Ten Commandments,’ a film that was one of the biggest blockbusters of its time.”(Um. Don't forget the animated film staring Val Kilmer, Ralph Finnes, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sandra Bullock, Jeff Goldblum, Patrick Stewart, Helen Miren, Ofra Haza, Danny Glover, Steve Martin, and Martin Short....)
And, though thematically related, the two films will have very different treatments. From the Guardian:
“Spielberg’s Moses film was previously described as an epic biopic of the Israelite leader in a gritty Braveheart-meets-Saving-Private-Ryan style. Scott, meanwhile, was expected to plump for a detailed reworking which would focus on the minutiae of his subject’s life, such as the leader’s relationship with Pharaoh Rameses II, as well as more famous episodes.”
Moses has been done to death but if Christ Bale is on board I have no choice but to go see it. ABC News was talking about the recent interest in biblical films. You got this, the Bible miniseries, Russell Crowe as Noah, etc. I want one on Queen Esther tbh. Apparently Brad Pitt is tapped to play Pontius Pilate in a movie about the aforementioned general's life.
On Sunday’s Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kim Kardashian and Kourtney take things to a whole new reality TV low after they clash over a question we’re sure has been on the forefront of everyone’s minds …
Who has the better-smelling private parts?
Thankfully, little sister Khloe is on hand to officiate over this vital matter and we soon learn the answer.
It all starts after Khloe drops a tidbit that pineapples help a woman’s private parts take on a “sweeter” odor, which leads her sisters into a spirited debate about whose “bits” have the better smell: Kourtney, the mother-of-two, or Kim, who was with high-profile studs like Reggie Bush, Kris Humphries, Miles Austin, and of course, Ray-J, before getting pregnant with Kanye West‘s baby.
Testing the theory, the sisters drink pineapple juice to prepare for the compelling conclusion to the sibling sniff-out of the century.
Still with us?
“If I’m going to win this I need to get as much pineapple juice as I can … it makes the vag smell good,” Kourtney declares.
“Kourtney seems very competitive about her vagina,” Kim notes. “I don’t know why Kourtney is challenging me — but she will lose!”
As for the judging honors, the task went to the (lucky) person who was deemed to be the most impartial: Khloe — of course!
Thankfully, to avoid yet another Kardashian sex tape-type leak, Kim and Kourtney used cloth napkins smeared with the musk of each other for Khloe to judge.
“Do I want to be the judge of the pineapple p***y?” Khloe rhetorically asks. “Not really, but we’re sisters … if I can’t smell their p***ies, what else am I supposed to do?”
When it comes time to judge, Khloe decides that Kourtney’s scent “was like a tropical island,” and likens Kim’s to “a flower p***y.”
STILL with us?!!!
If so, you obviously are dying to know – and the winner is …
“Honestly, I will say that Kim’s p**** smells the best – she’s the kitty winner,” Khloe rules.
Kourtney doesn’t seem too fazed by the loss though, “If Kim needs to think she’s won, then fine, I’ll let her think that – but we all know whose vagina is the sweetest of them all,” she vows.
The world can sleep easier at night now…..

So, what did you think of tonight's episode?
With Revolution taking a break, NBC decided to try a new Monday night drama, Deception. Has it been a ratings success for the network or will it end up being cancelled like so many of their other Monday night dramas?
On Deception, a wealthy party girl has been mysteriously murdered. Her childhood friend, now a San Francisco narcotics detective, is convinced by her former partner to go undercover into the wealthy world she thought she’d left behind. The cast includes Laz Alonso, Meagan Good, Victor Garber, Katherine LaNasa, Tate Donovan, Wes Brown, and Ella Rae Peck.
The series debuted in January to a 2.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.66 million total viewers. Those were hardly impressive numbers and were less than half of what Revolution’s premiere drew a few months earlier. Year-to-year however, it was a big improvement over the ratings NBC was getting for Rock Center with Brian Williams.
In week two, Deception’s ratings dropped more than 20% to a 1.6 demo rating and 4.14 million. That was not positive — and the ratings kept falling. As we now near the end of Deception’s 11 episode run, the ratings seem to have stabilized at a 1.1 demo rating with about 3.3 million viewers.
Those numbers are terrible and certainly there’s no ratings justification for NBC to renew Deception for a second season. They cancelled shows like Chase and The Playboy Club and they had better numbers than Deception.
On the positive side, at least NBC aired all of the episodes. Unfortunately, viewers are unlikely to ever get their storyline questions answered.
That was a pretty good season finale and a really craptastic series finale.

Oh my God. :( As always this post has been brought to you by actual fanboy Mike Weston come back soon bb
Lil Wayne said ICU later to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood ... because TMZ has learned he was just released.
Wayne spent 6 days in the hospital -- most of it in the Intensive Care Unit -- after suffering what appears to be a drug OD that triggered a series of massive seizures.
Sources connected with the rapper tell us ... Wayne is feeling weak but he's a lot better. He plans on laying low until he makes a full recovery.
Premiere was tonight on A&E. Did you watch? What did you think?
The Biggest Loser Crowns Winner
You lose some, you win some.
After a season of battling it out with the scale – and each other – Danni Allen, Jeff Nichols and
Danni Allen took home the title in the live finale by losing the biggest percentage of her body weight – 46.9 percent – outlasting Jeff Nichols and Jackson Carter to pick up the $250,000 grand prize.
"At the end of the day, look at me!" she said, beaming, right before the final weigh-in.
Allen, an advertising account coordinator from Wheeling, Ill., lost 121 lbs. in all, going from 258 to 137 lbs. (BOW!!!!) Her percentage loss just beat out Jeff Nichols, who lost 46.65 percent in going from 388 to 207 lbs.
As host Alison Sweeney pronounced her the winner, Allen embraced her trainer, Jillian Michaels – who had returned for the show's 14th season after two seasons off – as confetti rained down on the set.
Jackson Carter, the first openly gay contestant, finished third, going from 328 to 190 lbs. for 42.07 percent body-weight loss. Early in Monday's finale, Jackson was revealed to have won the public vote over sales executive Joe Ostaszewski to join the final three.
Allen wasn't the only winner Monday. Gina McDonald, an attorney from Hoover, Ala., won $100,000 by losing a bigger percentage than any of the other eliminated contestants this season. McDonald went from 245 lbs. to 132 lbs. for a loss of 113 lbs. – or 46.12 percent of her body weight.
McDonald narrowly beat out Lisa Rambo, a high school special-education assistant, who lost 43.9 percent of her body weight (going from 246 to 138 lbs.), and Ostaszewski, who lost 40.38 percent (going from 364 to 217 lbs.).
The finale also featured appearances by all three teen contestants– the first time the show has tackled the issue of childhood obesity.
Lindsay Bravo, an 8th grader who lost 47 lbs., performed a routine with the cheerleaders from her Fillmore, Calif., high school. Noah "Biingo" Gray of New Windsor, Md., another 8th grader, lost 43 lbs., and was surprised by the coach of an area baseball team, who revealed he had made the team. And Sanjana "Sunny" Chandrasekar, an 11th grader from Rochester, N.Y., lost 51 lbs. and four dress sizes, and showed up in her sparkling pink prom dress.
"My life is complete. I'm so happy," Chandrasekar said. "All it takes is a step in the right direction and some perseverance ... It's the best feeling you can ever have."

"It's great. It's really good and strong," he told I Am Rogue.
"I think fans will love it. I think people who have never seen any of the [previous] X-Men films before are going to be really into it. I think it's satisfying and giving people what they want, while at the same time being challenging and giving them something different, new, and unexpected."
McAvoy will reunite with X-Men: First Class co-stars Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult in Bryan Singer's sequel.
"I can't wait to work with Michael again, [plus] Jennifer and Nick," he said. "It's going to be great, we got along so well the first time around. That'll be fun.
"Then also, getting to team up with Sir Patrick. I don't know if I get to work with Sir Ian [McKellen], but it should be a real exciting time, I think."
"I read the script yesterday," says McAvoy. "...I had my first costume fitting. He looks cool. He looks fun. I like his '70's costumes."
"My head is all about [Macbeth] at the moment," the actor continues. "The day I finish that, I'll be firmly Chuck Xavier."
On Monday's TODAY show on NBC, guest host, Lisa Rinna, puckered up and talked about the lips that helped make her famous. The actress was very candid and explained what she did to get her famous pout. "Here's the story. 25 years ago I had my lips injected with silicon," she said. "I saw Beaches and I did it with my best girlfriend," she explained.
Lisa recently had trouble with the choice she made over two decades ago. "So then cut to a couple of years ago, I had a doctor remove as much as they possibly could because it got to a point where they were yucky. They get hard! I mean it's gross. So they are now just whatever that was after they took out as much as the silicon as they could."
Lisa admits to having to deal with the effects of her injections. When asked if she still gets her lips filled, Lisa said no. "No, I don't and my lips don't go up and they don't go down." Rinna said.
Despite the risks, Lisa doesn't regret her decision to inject her lips. "I would do it again," Rinna replied. "I never had a career before I had the lips so my lips have had their own career!" Rinna is known for her roles as Billie Reed on Days of Our Lives. She has also appeared on Melrose Place.
if you what cosmetic surgery have get y'all?
Peter Murphy, lead singer of British Goth rock band Bauhaus, was arrested Saturday after he allegedly rear-ended a vehicle in Glendale, injured the driver and then fled to Los Angeles, where he was blocked by an eyewitness until police arrived, officials said.
The eyewitness followed Murphy, 55, from the crash at Central and Goode avenues in Glendale to the 3400 block of Barham Boulevard in Los Angeles because “he was afraid [Murphy] would kill someone with his driving,” according to Glendale police.
Murphy, who was in a Subaru Forester, reportedly struck a Mercedes about 11:48 a.m. at the intersection, then drove around it and got on the Ventura (134) Freeway, police said. As he fled the scene, a witness who was washing windows, snapped a photograph of Murphy’s Subaru, which sustained moderate front-end damage.
The driver of the Mercedes was also able to write down Murphy’s license plate number before Glendale fire personnel hauled her away on a gurney, police said.
Meanwhile, the driver of a pickup truck reportedly followed Murphy to Los Angeles, where he pulled in front of him, blocked his Subaru and called Glendale police to tell them he was detaining Murphy.
Los Angeles police detained Murphy until Glendale police arrived.
Glendale officers said Murphy appeared to be at points “very confused” and had difficulty recalling the day and time.
Murphy denied drinking alcohol that day, adding that he had only taken his regular prescription pills for depression, according to police.
Murphy — who’s from England but lives in Turkey — reportedly admitted to being involved in a traffic collision, telling officers he was jet-lagged from a recent flight, police said.
Inside the Los Angeles police patrol car where Murphy had been detained, officers reported finding a small plastic bag, possibly of methamphetamine, police said. Murphy denied the bag belonged to him, but officers said they believed he was trying to discard it in the patrol car.
Murphy was arrested on suspicion of causing injuries while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, felony hit-and-run and possessing methamphetamine, police said.
He remained in custody Monday in lieu of $500,000 bail, which was set after officers expressed concern that he could be a flight risk, police said.
Murphy is best known for his lead vocals with the group Bauhaus, which recorded four albums and ignited the Goth rock movement. The group is known for its greatest hit “Bela Lugosi’s Dead,” as well as “She’s in Parties” and “Kick in the Eye.”
After Bauhaus broke up in 1983, he helped form Dalis Car and went on to record several solo albums.
Seriously disappointed in him, ugh
Rob Kardashian is a man with a plan. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality star has been documenting his weight loss efforts on Twitter for the past few weeks, and during his birthday party at 1OAK in Las Vegas March 15, the 26-year-old told Us Weekly about his initial results.
"I lost 5 to 7 [pounds] last week. I'm trying to lose 40," he revealed. "It's a little journey, but it's good. . . I'm like 240 right now, probably 235." Kardashian added that he hopes to reach his goal weight by July 4.
The sock designer said he packed on the pounds by eating "a lot of great food," and now the single star is adhering to a low-carb diet. His slimdown motivation? "Beautiful women!" Kardashian admitted.
Kardashian isn't in this alone, as he's recruited friends to join him during his twice-daily workouts. "We go to do Runyon Canyon in L.A.," he explained. "I'll [exercise with] my own trainer at eight in the morning before all that."
Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke, who was partnered with Kardashian during the ABC show's thirteenth season in 2011, has also lent her support. "We've started running and doing our own little workout," Kardashian told Us. "It's good."
Horny Harry Styles invites up to a dozen girls a night to his hotel on One Direction’s wild UK tour.
His bonkers behaviour has stunned bandmates who “can’t keep up” with the 19-year-old.
Now Harry’s dad Des has had to step in and warn his son about his womanising ways.
Bandmate Niall Horan, also 19, told a pal: “Harry is just unbeatable. He never runs out of stamina! I’ve lost count of all the girls he’s pulled on this tour.
“He sleeps most of the day then does the gig and stays up all night with pretty girls in his room. He’s a total rock ’n’ roller.”
Another source close to the band told us: “It’s incredible, he seems to have at least three or four girls in his room every night.
“He’s totally out of control.
“Harry is totally brazen about it. He spots a girl he likes at a gig or when he’s out and about, goes right up to her and invites her to his hotel.
“He’s sex mad – it’s no wonder Taylor Swift couldn’t keep up with him and things ended badly.”
Harry stunned fans in Belfast last week by giving his number to a girl in the crowd and inviting her back to his hotel room.
Our insider added: “After nearly every gig on the tour so far he’s made sure there are loads of girls lined up at his hotel so he can take his pick.
“He’s had up to a dozen waiting on a single night. They all seem overjoyed to be invited back.
“The rest of the lads all hang out after gigs and watch movies or play their computer games. But Harry goes off with a harem of girls and you don’t see him until the next day.”
Despite his antics, Harry has been sending raunchy texts to Little Mix babe Jade Thirlwall. They got close when the pair auditioned for The X Factor in 2010.
Jade, 20, returned in 2011 and won the show but had a new fella by then.
Our source added: “Jade had a boyfriend when she saw Harry the following year so they tried to ignore the chemistry between them.”
Rocker/popster Pink may come off as one tough cookie, but it turns out the singer has an endearing soft side when it comes to her youngest fans. At her show in Philadelphia Sunday night, the singer stopped her set to comfort a little girl crying in the audience.
Pink, who was in the middle of a song, noticed the distraught child, and told her guitar player to "hold on a second."
She called out: "Is everything okay right here? Is this little girl all right?"
Turns out the child was upset by a fight in the crowd. "Y'all are fighting around a little girl?" Pink--who is the mother of a nearly 2-year-old daughter--said incredulously.
She then walked to the edge of the stage, and offered the girl a stuffed frog toy and a Rice Krispy treat, telling her "you look beautiful!" Awww.
The youngster was too shy to come up and get the goodies, but those in front handed them back to her, to much cheers from the audience. See for yourselves:
