Please let this not be a new trend in violence. We really don't need another.
A woman from Hamilton, Ohio, was recently stabbed multiple times by her 13-year-old daughter wielding a knife. The woman, who sustained minor injuries to her face, neck, and back, stated her daughter was obsessed with the fictional internet character Slender Man, the inspiration behind the brutal stabbing at the hands of two 12-year-old girls last week.
The unnamed woman was attacked by her daughter upon returning home. "I came home one night from work and she was in the kitchen waiting for me and she was wearing a mask — a white mask," the woman said. "She had her hood up and had her hands covered with her sleeves and the mask."
"She was someone else during that attack," the mother added. According to the mother the teenager has been dealing with "mental issues" and her writing was becoming darker and darker, mentioning demons, killing, and of course Slender Man.
Authorities say that the teenage girl, who is currently in a juvenile detention center, does not recall what happened the evening she attacked her mother.

Transcript of Video
Tyene: He has a good voice.
Obara: He's a singer, if he was a fighter we might've been in trouble.
Bronn: It's against my code to hurt women.
Obara: It's amazing how many men we beat seem to have this code.
Bronn: I wouldn't say you beat me.
Tyene: And how is your arm?
Bronn: Wonderful. Wouldn't feel right to leave Dorne without a new scar.
Obara: You think you're leaving Dorne?
Bronn: No great hurry. Dornish women are the most beautiful in the world.
Tyene: Thank you.
Bronn: I said Dornish women, I didn't say you.
Tyene: I'm not the most beautiful woman you have ever seen?
Bronn: I've seen quite a few women in all the Seven Kingdoms.
Tyene: Tell me one woman more beautiful than I am.
Bronn: Well, now in King's Landing there was an absolute...
Tyene: There was a what? In King's Landing you were saying...
Bronn: Was I?
Tyene: ...there is a woman more beautiful than I am.
Bronn: Was there? My memory's not what it was earlier.
Tyene: And how is your arm now.
Bronn: You seem concerned with it. You must really like me.
Tyene: And how is your head?
Bronn: My head? You don't even want to know what's going on in there.
Tyene: What was that, are you sure you're feeling alright?
Bronn: Sure, a bit woozy but that's to be expected after a good dust-up.
Tyene: Your nose is bleeding.
Bronn: It's not it's the dry air.
Tyene: My dagger was coated with a special ointment from Asshai. It's called the Long Farewell. It can take some time to work some times several days. But if one single drop makes contact with the skin...death.
Tyene: The only antidote. Who is the most beautiful woman in the world? Who? Who, sorry?
She takes whatever the antidote it is from or off of her necklace and gives it to him.
Tyene: Don't drop it. I think you're very handsome as well.
She blows him a kiss and laughs.
It's hard to believe, but another Comic-Con is right around the corner. Another four days of non-stop entertainment news and photo ops as some of the biggest stars in the world head to San Diego to promote their latest or current movies and TV shows. And, since approximately only 6,000 people can get into the massive Hall H, approximately 4,000 into Ballroom 20 and the entire event is effectively sold out, well, we're going to once again cover it from top to bottom for you.
That being said, we like to have fun doing it. You actually forget the smell of the convention center, the bad traffic and non-stop workload when something amazing happens. Like Harrison Ford making a surprise appearance to a standing ovation from 6,000 people. Or the entire cast of "The Avengers" shocking everyone by walking on stage. Or both the old and new "X-Men" casts appearing together for what turned out to be the only time in support of "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Or, the first screening anywhere or for anyone of the "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." pilot. Or, the 10th anniversary "Firefly" reunion. Or, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny reuniting on an "X-Files" panel. (OK, maybe our frowns only turn into smiles for a few minutes, but they are moments we'll never forget).
As it's almost the second week in June, Hollywood's TV networks and movie studios pretty much already know who is going and when. Still, the HitFix editorial team has come up with 25 major panels we'd love to see make the schedule next month (it actually could have been a much longer list). Some are more far-fetched (James Bond and "Community") than others (Daniel Radcliffe), but it might just get you excited about those four days in July.
What: 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron'
Why We Want It: It was on June 1 that Joss Whedon said he and his superhero crew were halfway done shooting "The Avengers" sequel. Mark Ruffalo said that Hulk has a bigger role in the new film. Robert Downey Jr. joined Twitter to give a peephole into the madness. For a film as vastly successful and fun-filled as the first "Avengers" is, we aren't working off a lot right now and are dying to know more.
Chances It Will Happen: 50%. Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Nick Fury, Black Widow and Hawkeye... feels like they have nothing to do but promote this film. But Whedon keeps his cards close to the vest. The X-Men upped the ante with their impressive, complete cast panel in Hall H last year and introduced their own Quicksilver before Avengers could, so there could at least be an Aaron Taylor Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) call. If James Spader (Ultron) comes, we may all die.
What: Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman appear for Batman v Superman
Why we want it: Let's see, DC's new big screen trinity - wait, first big screen trinity introduced in person to fans who've been waiting for "justice" for decades? Yep, that only something you might tell your grandchildren.
Chances it will happen: 51%. On the one hand, the film will still be in production and, yes, it won't hit theaters until 2016, but Warner Bros. wants to make sure they pull all the strings they can with this one. A quick "hello" before coming back for a big panel next year? It just makes too much sense. Plus, director Zack Snyder teased the current movie at last year's Con and has been in Hall H with panels for both "Watchmen" and "Man of Steel."
What: Comic-Con firsts for the Daniels — Radcliffe and Craig-as-Bond
Why we want it: If you can believe it, The Chosen One has actually never set foot in San Diego to attend Comic-Con. All those "Harry Potter" movies and Radcliffe hasn't heard the roar of Hall H (fans were actually so disappointed he didn't come in 2010 that Radcliffe felt compelled to release an official apology). Well, that will likely change with 20th Century Fox's "Frankenstein" panel this year. Beyond the insane crowd reaction, no star under the age of 25 outside of Jennifer Lawrence can work a room like Radcliffe. He will charm the pants all 6,000+.
Daniel Craig has been to Comic-Con before. He appeared on a panel for "Cowboys & Aliens" and at the movie's Con-timed premiere the following year. Agent 007, on the other hand, has never officially rocked Hall H. We hoped it might happen before "Skyfall." Now, with Craig's fourth film expected to begin shooting this fall? We'd love a James Bond tease.
Chances it will happen: 90% for Daniel Radcliffe. Fox would have to seriously change their strategy or Radcliffe's availability would have to change for it not to happen. 10% for Daniel Craig. Maybe they do it next summer before the Bond flick hits theaters in Nov. 2015, but 2014? When it's likely most of the cast is still unknown? Hard to fathom. Dare to dream, though.
What: Anything 'Star Wars'
Why We Want It: Star Wars mania has gripped the world once more. Nearly every day new leaks or official press releases are coming down the pipe announcing details to characters, sets, props, directors, and more. Supposedly Disney has stated there will be nothing about 'Star Wars Episode VII' at SDCC this year. But that's a tangled web of words. Perhaps something about the one-offs to be directed by Gareth Edwards or Josh Trank. Of course, if Abrams fans know anything about the mercurial director, it is this. Abrams lies. Will we see a Star Wars cast reunion? We'll find out in a few months.
Chances It Will Happen: 50%. Disney insists there won't be an official movie panel, but we don't believe it. Not yet.
What: Marvel Television — 'Agent Carter' for ABC &'Daredevil' and 'Iron Fist' for Netflix
Why We Want It: Hayley Atwell's turn as the intrepid Peggy Carter was the surprise breakthrough hit of 'Captain America.' After her one-shot 'Agent Carter' was released on the 'Iron Man 3' DVD, interest reached a fever pitch. Other than Atwell, no other information has been announced. SDCC is the perfect place to reveal her supporting cast — hopefully Dominic Cooper reprises his role as Howard Stark and a non-computerized Toby Jones as Dr. Zola. Demographic breakdowns for 2012's comic-con had approximately 52,000 women present. Those numbers will only be higher this year. Marvel has a chance to knock it out of the park with their first female-led property and cement themselves as the leader in gender equality in comic book properties on both big and small screens.
The two NetFlix series are the first real "superhero" shows that Marvel TV is producing. Will being on NetFlix mean they might break free of the "Avengers" look and feel that seeped into "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." on ABC? And can we get a sneak peek at who might play Iron Fist? (Assuming it's not announced beforehand).
Chances It Will Happen: 100% chance 'Agent Carter' will be part of Marvel's TV presentation. 70% chance of it getting a stand-alone panel instead of being lumped in with either 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' or the new Netflix offerings of 'Iron Fist' and 'Daredevil.'
75% on "Daredevil" although the show will be in production so, at worst, we might just get a teaser trailer. 25% on "Iron Fist." Chances are NetFlix isn't going to let Marvel move forward with a firm direction on the second committed series until they see a good chunk of "Daredevil" first.
Other panels Hitfix wants to see include: A Farewell to 'Community' Panel or just Dan Harmon, Peter Capaldi/New Who Episode Debuts, Halle Berry and 'Extant,''Fantastic Four,''The Flash' and 'Arrow' paired in Hall H, 'The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies,''The Hunger Games: Mockingjay,''Jurassic World,' Christopher Nolan Sneaks 'Interstellar,''Lost' 10th Anniversary, Brad Pitt and 'Fury Road' come to Comic-Con, Joseph Gordon Levitt and Neil Gaiman Talk 'Sandman' movie, 'Sharknado 2: The Second One,' Fox's 'Sleepy Hollow' Cast Panel, FX's 'The Strain,''Terminator Genesis,''Tomorrowland,' and A *Good* 'True Blood' Farewell Panel

What do you want to see at Comic-Con this year?
Kristen Wiig was afraid of LA when she first moved to the city. The American actress has fast become one of the top names in comedy thanks to her work on Saturday Night Live and movies such as Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
Before finding her comedy feet Kristen was studying for an art degree in Arizona, but she dropped out once she caught the acting bug.
"When I first moved, there was 'the dream', as there is for a lot of people. Then I got really scared. I moved there and I was like, 'Oh, I don't have any experience,' and I was surrounded by people a lot younger than I am, a lot better looking than I am, who've been acting for a while, who've been taking classes, who already have agents and I just felt like, 'Oh, there's a lot of work I have to do,'" she recounted to the British edition of Glamour magazine.
It didn't take long for people to notice her talents, which include writing as well as acting. While Kristen, 40, co-wrote the script for the hugely successful Bridesmaids with the help of Annie Mumolo, she often doubts her abilities when it comes to penning comedic moments.
"I think writing is probably where I have the least confidence. When I write with Annie, it's fun and we laugh. Of course, it's hard to figure the story and stuff, but once that's done and you're going through it, figuring out the dialogue and adding the jokes and stuff, that's more fun," she explained.
Fans will be over the moon to hear that the writing partners are back together working on a new project, though Kirsten remained coy on the details.
"My priority now is to finish the script that Annie and I are working on. I was writing some stuff by myself - it was a little dramatic and I stopped because it didn't feel like where I was any more.
"I started a different one that I'm really excited about, but Annie and I are writing together again. It's going to be really different, actually I mean it's still our voice, but it's going to be a much different story, even probably a different tone, than the one we wrote before," she teased.
One of the few criticisms of Game of Thrones is that it relies too much on gratuitous sex scenes. Considering that one of the main characters lays out his entire life story to two random whores who are having a practice fuck, the complaints seem reasonable (and book readers are very familiar with a character who is literally a stack of self-aware penises that gets introduced midway through Book 5). But some fans look at the franchise and decide that there isn't nearly enough inappropriate boning. These special people write fan fiction that will make it impossible to ever read the books or watch the show again without feeling dirty in a way that can never be cleansed.
#5. The Mare That Mounts the World
There's no subtle way to say this -- in The Mare That Mounts the World, Daenerys fucks a horse to death. Yeah, that's the kind of story we're dealing with here. You've been warned.
"Wait, what? This is not in my contract."
So why is Dany suddenly into horse boners, besides the fact that she's going through puberty? Because the author decided that "The Dothraki have a ritual where the khaleesi has to mate with the khal's stallion." Why they have this ritual is unexplained, because like all good stories, we enter the scene as late as possible, which in this case is when the horse is about the enter the scene, if you know what I mean. (I call vaginas "scenes.") This technique handily avoids answering the question of why Khal Drogo would want making love to his wife to feel like throwing a Dothraki black sausage through the halls of the Grand Sept, and fuck, I can't believe I just wrote that sentence. At least it's not as bad as these:
She gritted her teeth as the horse was slowly led inside her. It was so painful she thought she must be tearing. It burned so much and it took all her willpower not to cry out in pain. Dany tried to relax, her eyes still closed. Blood of the dragon, blood of the dragon, she kept thinking, and it helped. She was Daenerys Stormborn, of the house Targaryen, the blood of the old Valyria. She was blood of the dragon, and this was just a horse.
"Hi, lady, you seem nice, but I just want to be clear that this isn't MY idea of a good afternoon, either, OK? Everyone's making sacrifices here. Maybe at least pretend that you don't hate that I'm a horse?"
Like many classic fantasies, our humble hero encounters a seemingly insurmountable obstacle -- in this case, an equine erection -- but with great struggle and pain learns to master her hidden talents and overcome it, pun unfortunately intended.
"Fire and blood! Fire and blood! Fire and blood!" Yes! she thought, it is not the horse that fucks the dragon. It is the dragon that fucks the horse! "Fire and bloooooood!!!!!" Her screams rose above the murmur of the Dothraki as she came and she felt triumphant sliding away from the huge cock and into the loving arms of her sun and stars.
Her orgasm is so powerful that it kills the horse, thus fulfilling an ancient Dothraki prophecy. All the Dothraki who didn't sneak off to masturbate bow down to her in awe, for she is the Mare That Mounts the World. Which, not going to lie, sounds like pretty much the worst title ever. Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Dragons and Fucker of Horses, doesn't strike fear into my heart, at least not in the sense she'd be going for.
#4. Everyone Has a Summer
It's hard to remember after all the death and destruction, but at the very beginning of Game of Thrones, life in Winterfell was idyllic for the Stark family. Everyone Has a Summer looks back fondly on those halcyon days. And then adds some incest, because you can't masturbate to cherished family memories.
Our story begins with Jon Snow sneaking off to a forest pond to polish the ol' sword, so go ahead and take a few minutes to imagine Kit Harrington masturbating.
Last name's "Snow." Everyone is always talking about "winter coming." White stuff. There's a joke here. I'll come back to it.
But before Jon can finish scaling the wall, Arya interrupts him. She wants to join him for a swim, oblivious to the meaning of his sausage wrangling. But just when Jon thinks he'll avoid an awkward moment, out come the questions.
"I always see you by the pool, or in the pool, with it big on your hand." "When I saw you today, I wanted to ask you what's so fun in shaking your thing like that. It looks so silly to me. You are always making funny noises when you do it.
"You know nothing, Arya Stark."
This may sound like a couple of kids playing doctor, but keep in mind that Jon is a teenager, while Arya is, depending on whether your source is the show or the books, either too damn young or way too damn young to be getting the crows and the bees talk from her older brother. At least we aren't the only ones who realize that:
"Besides," she said, "you're not a boy. You're my brother."
She had said [that] as if being brother and sister made everything normal, instead of horrendous. It made him wonder if she even understood what they had done at the pool. He didn't know what was worse -- if she did understand, but was unfazed by their blood ties, or if she did not understand, but was lead on by his malicious subterfuge.
Faced with the knowledge that what he's doing is wrong, Jon heroically fingers his sister. Their "experiments" get more and more explicit, and finally they go all the way before they part ways.
It's crazy that this isn't even close to the worst thing to happen to the Stark kids.
Now, I know you're thinking that this is just another half-sibling statutory rape incest fic, the kind you've read dozens of. But it's not pure smut -- the author is invested in this relationship, and she wants us to be, too. The love between Jon Snow and his half-sister half his age is beautiful, and if seeing them forced to leave each other's arms doesn't make you tear up, you might be dead inside.
He hoped Needle made Arya know he would always love her. Skinny, scabbed-knees, tangled hair, smart, quick-witted, beautiful Arya -- everything he would ever want.
The memory of her laughter, of her love, warmed him more than his furs on the way North.
This is truly a touching story of a girl who comes of age when she stumbles across her brother jerking off and demands that he touch her junk. You know, just like so many girls do.
#3. Shadows in the Dark
One of the most common fan fiction pairings is Theon and Ramsay, aka Thramsay, because to some women, psychological torture plus genital mutilation equals sploosh, as long as the men involved are shirtless and have good abs. But considering that the fan fiction community once celebrated "Thramsay Week," and also considering that I secretly hate all of you, a story about the love between a young man tortured to the brink of madness and the maniac who cut off his penis is just too humdrum.
What, did you think I was joking? It took place over Valentine's Day.
With that in mind, let me set the scene. Late night, a darkened bedroom. A naked Ramsay, cruel smirk on his face, slips inside. His member is already hard at the thought of the perversions he's going to enjoy. Quietly, ever so quietly, he sneaks to the side of the bed, leans over, and ... grabs his dad's dick.
Aww yeah. It's time for some evil bastard son/evil traitor dad incest. Ladies, try to control yourselves.
"Wait, what? This isn't in my ... oh, fuck. This is revenge for the wedding, isn't it?"
Roose Bolton, as you will recall, helped arrange the murder of Robb Stark, while here he's an accomplice to the murder of the reader's libido. I think we both know what the greater crime is.
He forces Ramsay around, his hands now gripping his bastard's hips. He hates how well they fit in his hands, how they're the right mixture of thick meat and hard bone to fit in his long cold fingers.
"Disgusting ... Like your mother ..."
He whispers it in Ramsay's ear as he enters him. Ramsay tightens around his cock and a something like a laugh comes out of him.
And something like a vomit comes out of you.
Bolton resists at first, but eventually the Roose is set loose for what the author tries to make us think are complex psychological reasons even though we already knows the truth, which is that we couldn't have this brain bleach of a scene if he stabbed his son in a much more literal sense.
And so Roose Bolton violently sodomizes his bastard next to his sleeping wife, and ... ugh, you know what? Let's switch over to the Spanish translation, Sombras en la Oscuridad. It will disguise the horror, although the fact that someone read this and inexplicably decided that another culture needed to be exposed to it is terrifying in its own right.
Cuando vuelve en si, la boca de Ramsay sangra y el se siente pegajoso de sudor y semen.
"Ay, ay, ay! Es Roose Bolton. Me ha molestado!"
Huh, so apparently the Spanish word for "semen" is "semen." Well, that backfired. I'll leave you to speculate as to whose semen it is and where it's been placed.
But again, don't assume that this is nothing but porn. Because how could anything with a title as poetic as Shadows in the Dark not have moments of beauty?
Once Ramsay is gone, Roose cleans himself. He eventually falls asleep, his mind empty except for the sound of a river.
Damn. One moment it's incest and violent sodomy. The next, Hemingway.

Three weeks ago, Disney said it had "no plans for Leia products at the Disney store." This after announcing just one new female actress in the initial casting announcement for Episode VII. The toy announcement drew considerable criticism, including a barrage of tweets tagged with #WeWantLeia. Now, Disney says Leia toys are coming.
"The current assortment of Star Wars products at the Disney Store launched earlier this year, and is just the beginning of what is to come," a Disney spokeswoman told TIME."We're excited to be rolling out new products in the coming months, including several items that will feature Princess Leia, one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars galaxy."
While it's obviously distressing that it had to happen this way, it's always encouraging to see companies respond to customer feedback.

The ATX Television Festival staged a 15-year anniversary reunion of The WB’s Roswell on Sunday. Stars Shiri Appleby, Jason Behr, Brendan Fehr, Majandra Delfino and Nick Wechsler were reportedly there, along with creator Jason Katims. The sci-fi series debuted 1999 and ran for three seasons (the last on UPN) before getting axed due to soft ratings in 2002. At one point in its run, fans sent The WB Tabasco sauce (which the show’s aliens liked to eat) to try and sway the network to keep the show going. Random guest appearance: Roswell fan Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi (Jersey Shore) asked if the cast believes in aliens — and Appleby and Delfino apparently said yes. More from the panel, and above is your reunion photo. (Pictured above left to right: Fehr, Wechsler, Delfino, Behr, Appleby, Katims).
An appearance by American Idol alum Chris Daughtry on the morning show Fox & Friends has triggered backlash and a videotaped apology by the singer.
The season-five finalist had performed as part of the program's All-American Summer Concert Series and when asked by the show's hosts to sing a patriotic song in honor of D-Day (the game-changing World War II invasion by Allied troops marked its 70th anniversary on June 6), was clearly flustered by the suggestion.
"I'm off the clock," he said. "I'm going to watch 'y'all."
When the hosts gathered microphones and attempted to come up with a song the crowd could sing, Daughtry left the stage with the comment, "This is where I'll bail."
His actions triggered fury on Twitter, with one fan pointing out that U.S. soldiers "didn't go off the clock" on D-Day.
In a video released by the singer, Daughtry said he was "embarrassed" and "ashamed" of his actions. "I was thrown off," he said, admitting he was unprepared to handle the request. "I panicked."
He said he tried to handle it injecting some humor -- which obviously misfired.
"It was absolutely disrespectful," he said. "Poor choice of words, terrible judgment on my part. ... I wish that I could have pulled it together."
The worst part of all, he added, was his neglect of the troops "who have sacrificed everything for our country."
Said Daughtry: "What I do is miniscule in comparison, and I will never live up to what they did for our country. Fortunately, our troops have never said I am off the clock when they had to do what they had to do."
He concluded by saying the band, Daughtry, wholeheartedly supports the troops.
"Everyone has a moment in their life that they regret very deeply, and this is at the top of my list," he said. "It hurts my heart to know that I have disrespected the men and women fighting every day. I apologize for offending any of our troops, any of the men and women who have served past or present," he said. "I'm sorry."
Daughtry directed fans to his YouTube message via Twitter, writing, "There aren't enough characters on Twitter to express all I need to say."
Watch Daughtry's apology below:
In The Flesh has been one of BBC3's biggest hits in years, so successful that the channel have commissioned a new reality game show - I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse - inspired by the Bafta-winning drama.
You're probably wondering how this works... The seven-part series will see eight plucky contestants begin their adventure trapped inside a shopping mall. But there's a catch. They're surrounded by the walking dead and must complete tasks using urban survival tactics (whatever they are) to get by. With the Army on their way, there's just one goal - to avoid being bitten by a zombie. One bite and contestants will leave the show in "grisly style". Ooh-er.
"I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse is a reality event on a huge scale for BBC3," said the channel's outgoing controller, Zai Bennett. "It promises to be a deadly twist on the genre."
BBC3's entertainment commissioner Ruby Kuraishe added, "This is a tongue-in-cheek game show that will really test one's mettle. I think people will die to be a part of it."
Kieren, much like me, is nhf this reality show.
did anyone else watch In the Flesh? Are they as broken as I am?
“Younger” follows 40-year-old Liza (Foster), a suddenly single mother who tries to get back into the working world, only to find out it’s nearly impossible to start at the bottom at her age. When a chance encounter with a 20-something guy at a bar convinces her she looks younger than she is, Liza tries to pass herself off as 26 – with the help of a makeover, courtesy of her best friend Maggie (Mazar). Armed with new confidence, she lands a job as an assistant to the temperamental Diana (Shor) and teams up with her new co-worker and fellow 20-something Kelsey (Duff) to make it in the career of her dreams.
ONTD will you be watching TV lands newest dramedy?
Kandi Burruss has another hit on her hands. Her newest spinoff, The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi's Wedding, nabbed brag-worthy ratings on Sunday night.
The 8 p.m. airing of the new spinoff show scored 2.4 million total viewers and 1.2 million viewers in the advertiser-coveted Adults 18-49 demographic. That means Burruss’ wedding spinoff beat all other RHOA spinoffs in total viewers and all key demographics, according to Nielsen ratings.
In comparison, Kim Zolciak's “Don't Be Tardy” debuted to 1.39 million total viewers/691,000 in ad demo in April 2012, NeNe Leakes’ “I Dream of NeNe” premiered with 1.6 million total viewers/740,000 in ad demo in September 2013.
There's some redemption in this win for Burruss, as well. Kandi's Wedding did way better than her previous spinoff, a talent competition called The Kandi Factory, which premiered in April 2013 to a low 671,000 viewers, with 337,000 in the ad demo.
Additionally, a little slight of hand should increase Kandi's Wedding viewers even more in time-shifted viewing. By referring to the show as The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi's Wedding, DVRs that were set to record RHOA ended up recording Kandi's Wedding automatically.
Monica Brown thinks Kandi's aunts stole the show!
Monica was so entertained by the premiere of Kandi Burruss’ wedding spin-off that she had to share her favorite moment from the show. Even though she was there to see Kandi get hitched back in April, the Love All Over Me siren tuned in on Sunday just like every other RHOA fan.
It wasn’t the usual wedding planning antics or even Mama Joyce that had her hollering with laughter, it was Kandi’s aunts.
“LAWD I’m SO feeling Aunt Bertha right now!! Folks on IG and Twitter talk to MURCH… Blat Blat Blat Blat Blat Blat Blat Blat and don’t even know what they’re talking about,” Monica wrote along with one video post. “Assuming, over analyzing & flat out out thinking themselves #LawdGimmeStrength LOL #KandisWedding #ThisWasSoFunnyIPostedItTwice yesssssssssss @kandiburruss.”
A couple of months ago, Married To Medicine’s Dr. Heavenly Kimes ruffled a few feathers when she proudly shared that she submits to her husband, who is the head of their household, and further let it be known that the example she set is one Black women in particular need to see more of.
When we got the dentist in the office we had to ask her about her comments and to explain why she thinks African American women need to learn a thing or two about submission.
We also wondered how the medical community has responded to her foray into reality TV and, shockingly, Dr. Heavenly claims she hasn’t received any backlash since joining the BravoTV family. Do you believe her?
It’s no secret, reality TV seems to ruin friendships. Such is the case for reality cast members, Mariah Huq and Quad Webb-Lunceford. The two former BFFs were introduced to viewers on BRAVO’s Married 2 Medicine, but after one season the two have ended their friendship.
In April, we interviewed Mariah, getting her perspective on what went wrong with the two. And as you know, there are always three sides to the story. In an exclusive interview with Quad, the self-proclaimed ‘VERY BUSY’ personality shares her side.
If she’s over the Mariah vs Quad story-line this season:
I am completely over it. It is a knock-down, drag out story that is just like ‘Stop it already’. I mean yet again? I don’t want to talk about it as much as it has been discussed but people knew us for being like this, ya know she was a person that I just completely adored….completely adored, loved her. Loved, loved, loved her! You had better not said anything about Mariah last year honey, I would’ve snapped your neck two times for Mariah, I really would have because I looked at her like a sister I never had and it is really just unfortunate to see where we are today.
On believing she and Mariah would be best friends for a lifetime:
If someone would have told me this a year ago I would’ve cursed them out and said ‘No, you’re talking about a different set of girls, we’re not like that, we’re going to stand the test of time’.
On what she watched on season 1, that upset her about Mariah:
When I reviewed some of the episodes of season 1, I was seeing the little digs and the snide remarks that she was making in regards to me and I’m like ‘Wait a minute, what the hell is going on here?’ because friends don’t do this, especially best-friends don’t do this. Now I can expect this, at the time, from Toya [Bush-Harris] or whatever because her and I was at odds but from Mariah to take those type of digs towards me, I was like, ‘Where is that coming from?’….For someone who I completely adored, cared about, loved, I put so much of me into our friendship, so for me to actually hear how SHE viewed me, was flooring. It was just way too much for me to take and like I said, where we are today, I would’ve never thought we would be here 2 years ago, even a year ago until I actually was seeing the episodes.

As part of their Dragon Age: Inquisition "Meet the Heroes" series leading up to E3 next week, BioWare has released a new image featuring yet another character from the game. Meet Sera the Wildcard, an elf who may or may not have an axe to grind.
What do we know about Sera, then? Not a whole lot, to be honest. She appeared very briefly in the "gameplay" trailer that was released back in April, shown standing with other allies of the Inquisitor (the player character) along a table.
The teaser image from BioWare does give us some idea of what Sera is like as a person, though. Just look at her quote and then consider her "Wildcard" title, cliche as it may be. Basically Sera is supposed to be some kind of badass, I'm assuming, if a tad ineloquent.
Honestly, I'm just glad we still see female characters with short hair, because long hair doesn't feel right on battle-ready ladies. (um....) Either way, expect to learn more next Monday, when EA will be dropping Dragon Age: Inquisition info at their media briefing.
Dragon Age: Inquisition will be available for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC on October 7. Check out the recently released screenshots of the Fade and Therifal Redoubt:
I guess we can add one more game to the list of things we expect to see at EA’s Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference tomorrow. The official Mirror’s Edge Facebook page posted the above image (which appears to be concept art) with the hastag “#E32014.”
EA’s chief operating officer Peter Moore also tweeted the image, saying,“Have Faith.” Faith is the name of the protagonist in Mirror’s Edge. Sounds like Mirror’s Edge 2 will definitely be making an appearance at E3.
The sequel to the cult free-running game was announced with a simple trailer at last year’s EA press conference, but we have heard nothing at all since then. It’s good to get a sign that the game is not only still coming, but that we’ll see it again very soon.
As if 2003's cult-hit The Room wasn't strange enough, the upcoming film about its creation looks set to take things to a whole new level.
The Room had one of its monthly screenings in Los Angeles last night, curated by the film's star, director, writer and producer Tommy Wiseau.
To the crowd's delight, actor Dave Franco stood up during a Q&A session and asked: "Tommy, how do you feel about me playing Greg Sestero in the movie?"
The crowd erupted into cheers.
"That's what I say: It's a good choice!" said Wiseau.
Wiseau's Room co-star Greg Sestero wrote a behind-the-scenes book about the making of The Room last year, called The Disaster Artist.
Shortly after it was published, Seth Rogen's production company bought the film rights to Sestero's book. Since then, James Franco has come on board to direct, and has indicated multiple times he will play Tommy Wiseau.
If last night is anything to go by, it now appears James Franco's younger brother Dave Franco will play Tommy's best friend (and author of The Disaster Artist) Greg Sestero.
Like Rogen's 2013 film, This Is The End, The Disaster Artist appears to be turning into some kind of Hollywood in-joke the rest of us will eventually get to share.
After giving his approval, Wiseau urged Dave Franco to come on stage, to which Franco replied, "No way!"
"I didn't want to say it, but it happened, so. He's a good guy," Wiseau told the crowd in his typical garbled manner.
When another audience member asked Wiseau if he'd read The Disaster Artist, Wiseau said he had, and agreed with "about 50 percent of it".
He said, "Greg is a talented guy, but you know, whatever".
3News Online Entertainment editor Daniel Rutledge was at the screening, and says it was a surreal thing to behold.
"A few people pushed at what he thought of the book being turned into a film, but Wiseau was coy and typically unreadable about it. But [he] didn't seem totally into the idea, far from it," says Rutledge.
"Tommy also did a hilariously bad impersonation of James Franco, and took a slight dig at Dave's recent film Neighbors [released as Bad Neighbours in New Zealand], for taking the same name as his upcoming project The Neighbours."
Rutledge says Dave Franco was joined in the crowd by Superbad's "Mc'Luvin" actor, Christopher Charles Mintz-Plasse.
"The crowd was especially passionate last night. I've seen The Room in LA before, but this was the most active and enthusiastic crowd, and had by far the funniest heckles. It was the eleventh anniversary of the film playing in LA and it was a once-in-a-lifetime cinematic experience," says Rutledge.
Wiseau spent the rest of the Q&A session clearing up other facts about the film he made 11 years ago. This included clarification about the mental state of one of the film's actors, Danny.
"Oh, before I forgot, Danny is retarded by the way," said Wiseau.
didn't watch tonight's ep but oop @ the stannis fans.
