After Matty dropped his adoption bombshell, Jenna was happy that Matty had opened up to her about such a touchy subject. Tamara wasn’t going to take their easygoing relationship sitting down, especially in light of her recent breakup with Jake. Jenna said that her and Matty were closer than ever and were working toward a more adult relationship. Tamara just wanted to make sure that Jenna wasn’t investing more into it than Matty was.
However, Tamara was investing herself in all of Jake’s business. Tamara wanted to know if Jake was talking about her, but Jenna told her to cool it. Jenna’s lack of overanalyzing was causing Tamara to ask where the old Jenna was and when she was coming back.
That old Jenna returned real quick. Jenna became obsessed with wanting to talk to Matty. Matty told her to hold her horses and take a deep breath. “I’m in to you,” he said. They both wanted to know where their relationship stood. “We’re friends,” Jenna said. “With benefits,” Matty replied. Jenna said she would be around to talk later and Matty said he would hit her up, but it wouldn’t be to talk!
Despite reportedly being due in August, any signs of the star's pregnancy will be edited out for the comic book blockbuster
Scarlett Johansson might be expecting her first child, but Black Widow won't be showing any signs of pregnancy.
The gorgeous star is said due to give birth to her and Roman Dauriac's baby in August, which threw up a few issues for the filming of
Avengers: Winter Soldier Avengers: Age of Ultron.
However, The Sun reports that Scarlett will be able to perform as she is, with her growing baby bump being edited out in post-production.
According to the newspaper, the actress will be wearing a high-tech suit with a green band around her waist which will allow the special effects team to remove any signs of her pregnancy.
Meanwhile, it is said that director Joss Whedon has no intention of letting her off easily, still expecting her to be part of the movie's fight scenes.
Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige seemingly confirmed Scarlett's maternity in an interview about the film last month and suggesting everything will still go to plan.
Speaking about the mum-to-be last month, he said: "Well my first reaction was I was very happy for her and very excited for her.
"My second reaction was we've got to move some pieces on the chess board around schedule-wise. But we didn't change the script at all, which is sort of the most important things for us in terms of the storyline."
Judge Judy is headed from daytime to primetime.
CBS has set a one-hour special, Judge Judy Primetime, that will follow Judge Judith Sheindlin's transition from a New York family court judge to Judge Judy, as well as include new cases. The special will air Tuesday, May 20, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
The special will also include "Judyisms," Sheindlin's one-liners that have been parodied on late-night programs such as Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Saturday Night Live. Additionally, the special will have clips from the 60 Minutes piece in 1993 and a 2003 follow-up.
Judge Judy's daily daytime series has been the No. 1 show in first-run syndication for the last three years and No. 1 in daytime for four straight seasons. It has been the top courtroom program in the U.S. since its September 1996 debut and is licensed in more than 125 markets.
your primetime favs aren't safe!!
Bryan Fuller has revealed that he is "very confident" that Hannibal will be renewed for a third season.
The future of NBC's critically acclaimed Hannibal Lecter adaptation remains uncertain in the run-up to the US network upfronts next month, given its continued low ratings.
"I hear very positive things," Fuller told Digital Spy. "All of the creatives at NBC are so supportive of the show and want it back, and the schedules and salespeople are like, 'It's a new show, get rid of it'. We are banking on the creative people winning out over the salespeople.
"The ratings are not anything to jump up and down about, but the critical acclaim is great, and we're sort of a prestige project for the network, so we're hoping that's enough, like it was last year. There have been indications that it will be."
Fuller also revealed that he and his co-producers have considered alternative options for producing the third season, should NBC fail to renew the show.
"The confidence hasn't stopped us from seeking out backup plans that would get us a third season one way or another. There are many more options than there have been in the past. So I feel very confident about a season three.
"We end season two in such a strange way - boy, I would be pissed [if that were the end]! We don't quite land the plane, we leave the plane in the air."
NBC will announce its 2014-2015 slate and any cancellations at the New York upfronts on May 12.
Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence has topped this year's FHM magazine's 100 Sexiest Women In The World poll.
The Hunger Games star has won the accolade for the first time, racking up a record number of votes and trouncing last year’s winner, Mila Kunis, who slips to sixth.
Commenting on J-Law's win, FHM 100 Sexiest editor Dan Jude, said: “Congratulations to Jennifer on landing the number one spot. She’s run away with the title this year and it’s no great surprise.
"Not only is she the most in-demand actress on the planet, but men the world over have fallen in love with her kooky charm.”
Corrie babe Michelle Keegan scored second place in the poll, meaning she has pinched the Sexiest Woman In Britain title from 2013 champion Helen Flanagan, who has slipped to No.14.
Speaking of her win, the actress said: "I'm totally taken back by this, it really does mean a lot. Thank you so much to the readers of FHM and everyone who took the time and voted for me, I'm so flattered.
"I believe that being 'sexy' isn't wearing lots of heavy make-up or having the perfect hair or figure, it's about self-confidence, being comfortable with yourself, smiling and being happy!"
Elsewhere in the top ten, Rihanna drops one place to No.3, while Blurred Lines babe Emily Ratajkowski is this year's highest new entry in fourth position.
Beyoncé jumps twelve places to claim seventh spot, while former X Factor panelist Nicole Scherzinger is at 9 (returning judge Cheryl Cole is at No.13).
The Top Ten
1. Jennifer Lawrence (last year 20)
2. Michelle Keegan (last year 4)
3. Rihanna (last year 2)
4. Emily Ratajkowski (new entry)
5. Kaley Cuoco (last year 6)
6. Mila Kunis (last year 1)
7. Beyoncé (last year 19)
8. Lucy Mecklenburgh (re-entry)
9. Nicole Scherzinger (last year 54)
10. Scarlett Johansson (last year 49)
The likes of Jennifer Aniston (No.36), Kelly Brook (No.23) and Kate Moss (No.42) all feature in the poll, with Cara Delevingne also making her debut at 54.
We had a HUGE response to the first part of this feature! Quite frankly, we can’t wait to unfurl the rest of the list…but we’ll limit it to ten entries a week. Round 2 sees us still deep in the DC Universe, but don’t panic…the World of Marvel will be featured next time! Plus there’s still indies, horror, real world stories…
Batgirl: Year One
Barbara Gordon is one of the most famous DC ladies, both for her run as Batgirl and for her turn as the handicapped yet kick-ass Oracle. Barbara first came about in the 60’s but it was her reimagined first year on the job in Batgirl: Year One that really delivers. This is the book that made me fall madly in love with the height-challenged, intelligent, witty, and charming young redhead who took it upon herself to follow in Batman’s footsteps. This is not only a wonderful introduction to the character, but an extension on her as well.
Hush has just about everything I love from a Batman story compiled into one epic arc. It further advances the relationship between Bruce and Selina Kyle, it introduces a brand-new and engaging villain into the Batman mythos and it’s chock full of appearances from a majority of the heavy-hitters in Gotham City. Batman literally has to run through a gauntlet of his biggest villains (and closest allies) to get to the heart of an elusive mystery. It takes the best elements of a Batman crime mystery while also marking the first major work for now famous Batman artist “Jim Lee”. Plus: he kicks Superman’s butt.
Batwoman, or Kate Kane, is an incredibly fascinating and important character that’s relatively new to the DC universe. She’s an ex-military, socialite, lesbian who kicks butt with the same fierceness and stoicism as Bruce Wayne himself. Batwoman: Elegy is not only a wonderful introduction to her character (including her backstory and family) but a truly fantastic story weaving natural and supernatural that is perfect as a standalone novel as well as an introduction to Batwoman’s New 52 series. Plus, it’s worth reading for J. H. Williams III’s beautiful artwork alone.
Batman: A Death in the Family
Sometimes giving the readers what they want can be the very worst thing they expect. During the run of Jason Todd as the second Robin the Batfans were unhappy with this new character. During a story of him seeking out his mother he encountered the Joker, and DC opened the phone polls. By a very close margin readers voted to kill off the new Boy Wonder…and then watched in horror as he was beaten to death with a crowbar. Be careful what you wish for.
Does this even need to be explained? Long considered one of the best, if not the best, superhero comic ever written this volume gives us realistic, damaged superheroes, a tale of subterfuge and manipulation and a psychological examination of the world of comics. Although Nite-Owl and Ozymandias are clear representations of well known characters others like Rorschach and Doctor Manhattan have gone on to be legends in their own right. Take the time to savor this story as you would an expensive meal, it’s worth the hype.
Tune in next week for the final wrap-up of the DC titles before we delve in to Marvel!

PEACHES Geldof died from a heroin overdose, it has been reported.
The TV star and mother of two was found dead at her country home earlier this month with police describing her death as 'non-suspicious'.
A post-mortem examination carried out at Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford proved inconclusive, prompting further investigations.
Samples of her blood and tissue were sent off to a laboratory for toxicology tests.
A 10 minute hearing is expected to take place tomorrow.
A statement released by a spokesperson for the coroner revealed that statement from a senior police officer will be heard and the coroner will release the cause of death.
The socialite’s funeral took place at the St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church in the Kent village of Davington in Faversham on 21 April.
It was the same church her mother’s funeral – and her wedding to husband Thomas Cohen – had taken place.
Mourners wept as her sky blue coffin, which had been painted to show an image of Peaches together with her musician husband Tom Cohen, their two sons Astala, aged 23 months, and Phaedra, 11 months, alongside their pets, was carried into the church.
Kate Moss, Jamie Hince, Alexa Chung, Nick Grimshaw, Bill Wyman, Jools Holland and the Duchess of York were among the famous faces that attended the service, as were Jo Wood, Eliza Doolittle, Johnny Borrell, Alan McGee, Mariella Frostrup and husband Jason McCue.
Lea Michele is opening up to the world. The Glee actress is releasing her first book, Brunette Ambition, on May 13 and she shares everything from how to deal with acne to embarrassing moments on the set of Glee.
On the book's cover, the 27-year-old stuns in just a white sweater and tall black socks. Equal parts memoir, how-to, and style guide, the tome is "the story of how I got to where I am today," Michele says in a press release, “As incredible and unexpected as that journey has been. My hope is that you take something from it that will inspire and motivate you, and also make you realize that anything you want to accomplish in your life is completely possible."
In the book, the singer shares her "foolproof system for remaining healthy and centered … to beauty and fashion secrets," as well as never before seen pics.
“There wasn't a guidebook when I was growing up, that detailed everything I would need to do, and know, to get where I am today,” said Michele. “But I believe I can write one of sorts: not a how-to-make-it-in-show-business book, but a guide to harnessing tenacity, passion, enthusiasm, and hard work to make your dreams come true.”
Lea Michele has had a whirlwind year filled with major ups and downs, and in her new book Brunette Ambition, the Glee star is opening up and sharing intimate life stories and motivational advice.
The 27-year-old beauty covers everything from her fashion tips, skincare rituals, fitness routine and favorite recipes.
Here are some standout tidbits from the lifestyle guide, which hits stands May 13:
Her most important fashion pieces have serious sentimental value.
"My grandfather bought me a necklace before he passed away that I'll always cherish. It's a small diamond necklace, and I love it so much.
She also treasures a sweet reminder of late boyfriend Cory Monteith. "I'll always keep Rachel's "Finn" necklace from Glee."
Sometimes designer dresses aren't good for your health.
As a young girl, the star recalls "playing red carpet arrivals at the Oscars" and pretending to dress up in glamorous gowns. Now, she gets to wear them all the time for her job, but it's definitely not fun when your dress makes you sick.
"I wore a Marchesa dress to the 2011 People's Choice Awards that was absolutely stunning: It was covered with this beautiful white flapper-style beading. I took my cousin as my date that night and won an award—I felt a little ill but chalked it up to nerves from the night. After, we all went to a big dinner, where I ultimately had to excuse myself because I just didn't feel good. I headed back to my house with my cousin, changed out of my dress and instantly felt better—it was only at that moment that my cousin picked up the dress and exclaimed how heavy it was. We weighed it, and it came out to twenty pounds! I was literally being pulled to the ground by my dress all night!"
After that experience, Lea makes comfort a top priority for any big event. "You have to be able to breathe, and you have to trust that your dress isn't going to fall down or split up the back."
One of her favorite red carpet moments happened with Cory.
"I wore a Pucci dress to the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in 2012, and I went with Cory. I remember being so excited for him to see me in that dress because I thought it was gorgeous, with a low back and an awesome print."

After some back and forth in Billboard over the last week, one thing is clear: The inner workings of Mariah Carey's new album are very unclear. We sat down with the arch diva and get some of the details on her album, which have so far been very scarce.
"I recorded everywhere, from Capri to Puerto Rico," Carey said in an interview with Radio.com. "I mean, now you only need a little bit of sound proofing and Pro-Tools to sing." She revealed that tracks were written in Atlanta with co-manager and longtime collaborator Jermaine Dupri, and in L.A. with Rodney Jerkins. And one old collaborator came back to do a new song with her.
"I worked with Q-Tip again, we previously worked on the record 'Honey'," she revealed. "We have to mix that song. He's angry with me because he thinks that I didn't allow him to do his mix, but really it's okay. He loves me, we're going to make this work. And that's good because it's one of my favorite songs. I'm going to call him soon... I think we need to get that ready.
As for her inspirations when writing on the yet-untitled record, Carey calls the process a "journey" and details trying to fit the emotions of motherhood and her self-professed "tough pregnancy" into the music. "My career has been my entire life," Carey said. "I never thought that I would be a mommy to babies."
she's coming to slay!!!
And the Kosovan-born singer kept her fans, and beau Calvin Harris, on their toes - by slipping into two outfits for a night out in New York on Sunday. The diminutive star, 23, opened up about her romance with music producer Calvin on the Watch What Happens: Live chat show putting paid to rumours they had broken up. The 23-year-old - currently in New York promoting new single ‘I Will Never Let You Down’ - arrived with Calvin at the New York studios and revealed on the show that they were very much an item.
She told Us Weekly magazine: 'He [Calvin Harris] gets me, so he brought out the best in me like nobody else could,' the songstress added, pertaining to the new single that Harris wrote for her.She has also admitted that Calvin was worried she would appear nude in her upcoming film Fifty Shades of Grey in which she plays Mia Grey.The pop star has told how she had a meeting with her father and brother about her role in the upcoming movie, even though she never took her clothes off during filming.Asked if she appears nude in the movie, she said: 'Nope! Calvin, my dad and my brother had a group meeting to worry about it. I leave that to the main characters.'
She added in the interview with Us Weekly magazine: 'He wrote it (I Will Never Let You Down) in about an hour. And he writes as he takes a shower. What a genius!'
it's pretty similar to the first trailer with some new footage towards the end
Dr Drew Pinsky has managed to offend not only an innocent couple who phoned in for his help on a recent episode of Loveline, but also endometriosis sufferers around the country and beyond.
The reality TV doctor, who has hosted Celebrity Rehab and a number of subsequent spin-offs, interrupted his caller as he was explaining that his fiancee had endometriosis, lactose intolerance and interstitial cystitis.
'These are what we call sort of functional disorders,' he began. 'They're sort of... they're what we call "garbage bag disorders," when you can't think of anything else, you go, "Eh, well it's that."'
He then proceeded to suggest that perhaps she was 'visiting doctors all the time' because she was sexually abused growing up.
Surprisingly, the male caller confirmed that indeed she had been sexually abused, at which point Dr Drew somewhat triumphantly leapt into his next diatribe.
'The only way her body, which was suffering during those early experiences, can tell its tale of woe is with pain,' he says, describing the 'unexplained' discomfort as 'somatoform dissociation'.
'She really needs to see a trauma specialist, not a urologist. Know what I'm saying?'
In a shock move, Dr Drew promptly hung up, giving his caller no opportunity to ask his actual question.
The internet was quickly awash with angry respondents, many of whom are sufferers of endometrosis - which is defined by medicinenet.com as 'the abnormal growth of cells, similar to those that form the inside of the uterus, but in a location outside of the uterus.'
'How can you call it a garbage bag disorder when the patient has actual positive diagnostic tests?' wrote one angry viewer on Loveline's comment section. 'Did my urologist etch-a-sketch ulcers in my bladder? Did my gynecologist doodle in my over growing uterine lining?'
Another wrote: 'I am one of 200 million women with this disorder. I miss work every month, Fashion Week, friend's birthdays, parties, etc. It affects every part of my life.'
In response to the negative backlash Dr Drew received, he offered a sheepish apology on last night's Lifeline. He told listeners that he didn't mean that all endometriosis diagnoses were 'garbage', just that in the case of that particular caller, it sounded like doctors were searching in vain for an explanation for her pain.
Mexican actress Ninel Conde confirmed that she is pregnant with her boyfriend, Giovanni Medina's baby. Conde started a relationship with Medina in October, 2013 after a tempestuous divorce from Juan Zepeda.
In an interview With TV Notas, Conde said she's happily awaiting her child, clearing up the rumors of an alleged abortion spread after the leaking of a conversation in which Giovanni accuses her of "killing his son".
"Much has been said on the matter and it's the time to confirm the news. Thank God, it's a blessing in my life, after many years of wanting it. Today I can confirm I'm pregnant, have been for three months and I'm very happy. If I kept quiet its because I wanted the three months of risk to pass and since they did pass, it feels like the right time to say it," Ninel told the magazine.
Speculation surrounding the actress' pregnancy was also confirmed by her agent Danna Vázquez who told People that Conde is expecting her second child, without her work commitments being affected.
Ninel Conde said in a press conference that the rumors of the abortion were false, categorically denying the information and saying it was a part of a desprestige campaign against her.
During the introduction of the cast of the musical Amar y Querer in Mexico City, Conde spoke on the matter, visibly annoyed, denying the statements made by a gossip magazine and a recording in which she's heard arguing with her boyfriend, Giovanni Medina, on the matter.
"This is part of a desprestige campaign, which thank God, producers like José Joel have put aside these things, and these people with to block my work, block a source of income for me, for my daughter, for my family," said Conde in a press conference in the Blanquita Theater.
Before I ever watched The League, I knew Jon Lajoie from his popular and hilarious YouTube channel, filled with music videos and commercial parodies. I think the first thing of his I ever saw was Everyday Normal Guy and I was hooked. Since then, over the years Lajoie has brought us this insane Christmas song, F*ck Everything, and the 2 Girls 1 Cup song, among others.
Now from Lajoie’s fascinating brain comes “Please Use This Song” — a brilliant take on pop music that seems to be written almost entirely for the reason of selling out to advertising agencies. We’ve all heard them: songs that, the minute you hear them — before they even make it into a commercial — you just know they’re destined for sh*tty advertising greatness. The Postal Service’s “Such Great Heights” and Apples in Stereo’s “Energy” are two that immediately come to mind.
Anyway, the sad thing is, Jon Lajoie is actually better at writing fake songs then most people are at writing real ones. I don’t know how much he gets paid for The League, but he could actually probably make a very comfortable living selling out.

In honour of Drake’s pants, the Toronto Raptors are giving out free lint rollers tonight.
After Drake‘s famous pants de-linting episode during game two of the Toronto Raptors’ playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets, this was inevitable. According to the Star, fans at tonight’s game five, at the ACC, will have their pick of two different lint-roller giveaways. There will be 1,200 official OVO/Raptors-branded rollers from Bounce, and IKEA has announced that it will be handing out some lint rollers of its own. Even deputy mayor Norm Kelly is hip to this emerging lintlessness fad, so popular with the youth.
And so, no matter the outcome of tonight’s game, the loser will be lint.
Bravo viewers are not in a New York state of mind. While other Housewives franchises continue to flourish, the lackluster Real Housewives of New York City has been bringing in the lowest ratings EVER in the history of the show, and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that it could soon be on the chopping block!
Though the series’ stars have plenty of drama in their personal lives - cheating scandals, bankruptcies, wine throwing and cougars – all of that excitement has happened off-screen. As a result, viewers have been tuning out in increasing numbers since the first episode, which brought in a measly 1.33 million viewers — the lowest number since the show debuted.
Now, “Bravo executives are watching the numbers closely and they are definitely considering getting rid of the New York franchise,” a source close to the production told Radar.
The ratings have continued to bomb during the season, hitting a series low of 1.2 million viewers for the fifth episode. And while they climbed in the last two weeks, the core audience that advertisers look for has fallen off drastically.
This week’s 1.46 ratings are up but there was a “64,000 viewer decrease (-8.39%) in the more important 18 to 49 year old demographic,” according to BravoRatings.com.
As the Aviva Drescher/ Carol Radziwill “Bookgate” feud fell flat and Ramona Singer’s marital problems didn’t make the cut, the show is still struggling to draw in viewers and that doesn’t bode well for the well-heeled Manhattan ladies.
“The ladies just aren’t connecting with viewers and they need something major to happen to them,” the source told Radar.
good riddance tbh, nyc will always have a special place in my heart (it was the first housewives franchise i watched) but this season has been nothing but manufactured drama & all the housewives are horrible people, the show died when bethenny left
On March 6, Christina Fallin—Mary's daughter and the lead singer of the band Pink Pony—proudly posted a photo to Instagram that showed her wearing a headdress, seemingly unaware that it might anger scores of people in her mother's state, which is still 9 percent American Indian. In response to social media blowback against that picture, Fallin, who is 27, released a statement along with her band, asking Oklahoma's native community to "forgive us if we innocently adorn ourselves in your beautiful things."
On March 22, the Flaming Lips played a show without Kliph Scurlock, who had drummed with the psych-rockers since 2002. On April 2, a commenter on the indie rock blog Brooklyn Vegan wrote that legendary frontman Wayne Coyne had fired Scurlock from the band, and that Fallin's headdress stunt was to blame:
Kliph wasn't fired for calling Wayne out on his midlife crisis b.s. (although if anyone in that band had the nuts to bring it up to Wayne, it would be Kliph!) He was fired for taking a stand against Wayne's new buddy - the daughter of OK's tea-bagging, homophobe governor Mary Fallin - when she donned a Native headdress for a racist publicity stunt. When Kliph called her out on social media for being a shithead to the Oklahoma Native community who complained about her headdress publicity stunt, she tattled on him to Wayne. Wayne actually told Kliph he was fired for insulting Fallin publicly.
Five days after that post, the Flaming Lips officially announced that Scurlock had separated from the band. No reason was given for the departure, and perhaps because bands splinter all the time, the issue wasn't probed by the music press. According to a source who spoke with Gawker, Scurlock had left comments on Fallin's Instagram that expressed his displeasure with her photo.
Coyne, on the other hand, was supportive. In late March, he posted a since-deleted photo to Instagram showing three of his friends and a (sad-looking) dog wearing a headdress. The caption was "did our best @christinafallin pose."
On April 26, Pink Pony performed at the Norman Music Festival in Oklahoma. The crowd included not just festival attendees and those curious to see a band led by the governor's daughter, but also members of the activist group Eradicating Offensive Native Mascotry, who had organized a protest of the set because of Fallin's recent history. At the festival, protestors held signs that said "NOT A FASHION ACCESSORY" and "CULTURE IS NOT COSTUME."
Rather than shaming Fallin, the protests apparently egged her on. According to witnesses, Fallin, who was wearing a shawl with the word "SHEEP" stitched on the back, "performed a fake war dance while her boyfriend Steven Battles ridiculed the protestors and flipped them off from the stage." Watching the performance was Coyne, who had the same reaction as his friend Fallin. Sources told to BuzzFeed that Coyne was seen "pointing and laughing at the protestors."
After Fallin's performance, the Oklahoma gossip blog Red Dirt Report reported that it, too, had multiple sources that said Scurlock had been fired for calling Fallin out. A few days after that, we received a screenshot of a Facebook message Scurlock sent to an acquaintance in which he stated that he had indeed been sacked from the band for that reason.
Untethered from the Lips, Scurlock retweeted messages supporting the Fallin protestors after her performance. In an April 28 tweet to a supporter, Scurlock, addressing the state's Native American community, alluded to his dismissal from his band of a dozen years: "I will always stand by your side. And the greater the ignorance, the louder my mouth will get, rock bands be damned."
When asked for comment, a representative for the Flaming Lips said, "Apart from acknowledging that Kliph has parted ways w/ THE LIPS, I have no further info on this." Scurlock did not respond to an inquiry.
A bunch of new pictures have leaked from Britney's 2011 album photoshoot for Femme Fatale!
UPDATE: Some more pics!
