- 09/24/17--14:51: Fans petition Warner Bros to make Wonder Woman bisexual
- There is a Change.org petition, penned by GLAAD NYU campus ambassador Gianna Collier-Pitts, out right now asking for Warner Bros. to address Diana/Wonder Woman's bisexuality in their films.
- The petition ends with: "All I ask is that Warner Bros. directly acknowledge Diana Prince for who she is, who she has always been (regardless of her current love interest), and what her character could potentially represent for millions of people."
- Collier-Pitts' reasoning for the petition: "Wonder Woman’s Diana Prince hails from Themyscira, land of the Amazons and inhabited exclusively by women. This alone should serve as reason enough to confirm her sexuality, since any close relationship she could have had prior to her romantic storyline with Steve Trevor would have had to have been with another woman. Some of you may be thinking that this specificity doesn’t make a difference but for people like me who rarely see themselves reflected in media, believe me. It does. […] Making Wonder Woman canonically bisexual on the big screen would make her the first openly LGBTQ superhero of any gender from either DC or Marvel’s cinematic universes, and would solidify her place as a true role model for women of all ages and identities."
- Previously in 2016, Gal Gadot said on the topic of her character being bisexual: "It’s not something we’ve explored [in the film]. It never came to the table, but when you talk theoretically about all the women on Themyscira and how many years she was there, then what he said makes sense. In this movie she does not experience any bisexual relationships. But it’s not about that. She’s a woman who loves people for who they are. She can be bisexual. She loves people for their hearts."

“B as in Best Friends” – Still homeless, the Huangs move in with Honey and Marvin. Jessica’s dreams come true when she gets a chance to compete on “Wheel of Fortune” during Best Friends Week with Honey. Eddie starts high school and is still on the outs with his pals but finds unexpected sympathy from Nicole. Michael Bolton offers to step in at the restaurant to give Louis more time with his family, but does he have an ulterior motive? The season premiere of ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat” airs on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 3.
Banned Books Week starts today, September 24th! PEN America and The Strand Bookstore in NYC recently compiled a list of 16 contemporary books that have been challenged or banned.
1. Two Boys Kissing, David Levithan - CHALLENGED
New York Times bestselling author David Levithan tells the based-on-true-events story of Harry and Craig, two 17-year-olds who are about to take part in a 32-hour marathon of kissing to set a new Guinness World Record—all of which is narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS.
While the two increasingly dehydrated and sleep-deprived boys are locking lips, they become a focal point in the lives of other teen boys dealing with languishing long-term relationships, coming out, navigating gender identity, and falling deeper into the digital rabbit hole of gay hookup sites—all while the kissing former couple tries to figure out their own feelings for each other.
2. Kinda Like Brothers, Coe Booth - CHALLENGED
Jarrett doesn't trust Kevon. But he's got to share a room with him anyway.
It was one thing when Jarrett's mom took care of foster babies who needed help. But this time it's different. This time the baby who needs help has an older brother -- a kid Jarrett's age named Kevon. Everyone thinks Jarrett and Kevon should be friends -- but that's not gonna happen. Not when Kevon's acting like he's better than Jarrett -- and not when Jarrett finds out Kevon's keeping some major secrets. Jarrett doesn't think it's fair that he has to share his room, his friends, and his life with some stranger. He's gotta do something about it -- but what? From award-winning author Coe Booth, KINDA LIKE BROTHERS is the story of two boys who really don't get along -- but have to find a way to figure it out.
3. And Tango Makes Three, Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell - CHALLENGED
In the zoo there are all kinds of animal families. But Tango's family is not like any of the others. This illustrated children's book fictionalizes the true story of two male penguins who became partners and raised a penguin chick in the Central Park Zoo.
4. Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass, Meg Medina - CHALLENGED
One morning before school, some girl tells Piddy Sanchez that Yaqui Delgado hates her and wants to kick her ass. Piddy doesn't even know who Yaqui is, never mind what she's done to piss her off. Word is that Yaqui thinks Piddy is stuck-up, shakes her stuff when she walks, and isn't Latin enough with her white skin, good grades, and no accent. And Yaqui isn't kidding around, so Piddy better watch her back.
At first Piddy is more concerned with trying to find out more about the father she's never met and how to balance honors courses with her weekend job at the neighborhood hair salon. But as the harassment escalates, avoiding Yaqui and her gang starts to take over Piddy's life. Is there any way for Piddy to survive without closing herself off or running away? In an all-too-realistic novel, Meg Medina portrays a sympathetic heroine who is forced to decide who she really is.
5. Baseball Saved Us, Ken Mochizuki - CHALLENGED
Shorty and his family, along with thousands of Japanese Americans, are sent to an internment camp after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Fighting the heat and dust of the desert, Shorty and his father decide to build a baseball diamond and form a league in order to boost the spirits of the internees. Shorty quickly learns that he is playing not only to win, but to gain dignity and self-respect as well.
6. Mexican Whiteboy, Matt de la Peña - BANNED(in Tucson)
Danny's tall and skinny. Even though he’s not built, his arms are long enough to give his pitch a power so fierce any college scout would sign him on the spot. Ninety-five mile an hour fastball, but the boy’s not even on a team. Every time he gets up on the mound he loses it.
But at his private school, they don’t expect much else from him. Danny’ s brown. Half-Mexican brown. And growing up in San Diego that close to the border means everyone else knows exactly who he is before he even opens his mouth. Before they find out he can’t speak Spanish, and before they realize his mom has blond hair and blue eyes, they’ve got him pegged. But it works the other way too. And Danny’s convinced it’s his whiteness that sent his father back to Mexico.
That’s why he’s spending the summer with his dad’s family. Only, to find himself, he may just have to face the demons he refuses to see--the demons that are right in front of his face. And open up to a friendship he never saw coming.
7. The Devil’s Highway, Luis Alberto Urrea - BANNED(in Tucson...)
In this work of grave beauty and searing power - one of the most widely praised pieces of investigative reporting to appear in recent years - we follow twenty-six men who in May 2001 attempted to cross the Mexican border into the desert of southern Arizona, through the deadly region known as the Devil's Highway, a desert so harsh and desolate that even the Border Patrol is afraid to travel through it, a place that for hundreds of years has stolen men's souls and swallowed their blood. Only twelve men made it out.
8. This One Summer, Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki - CHALLENGED
Every summer, Rose goes with her mom and dad to a lake house in Awago Beach. It's their getaway, their refuge. Rosie's friend Windy is always there, too, like the little sister she never had. But this summer is different. Rose's mom and dad won't stop fighting, and when Rose and Windy seek a distraction from the drama, they find themselves with a whole new set of problems. It's a summer of secrets and sorrow and growing up, and it's a good thing Rose and Windy have each other.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight Fergie had this to say: "You know what though, we're great friends. Josh and I- there's so much love that we have for each other, we really like each other, we have fun with each other we're just not a romantic couple anymore. But we are still Axl's parents through and through (...) It's still the same."

-- Mentions that his film shows that racism is everywhere and not just in the South. That the central theme is the fear whites have of losing their privilege and believing minorities are stealing it when that isn't close to reality.
-- Says growing up in the South as a child, he would see rules like "no open toed shoes" only enforced to black patrons.
-- Grew up around the Confederate flag and didn't see it for the symbol of hate it was until he was older.
-- Calls Steve Bannon a pussy and that he wrote one of the worst screenplays he's ever read. Claims if Hollywood actually cared for him, he'd still be there writing scripts and kissing everyone's ass.
-- Says Trumps attacks on the media are nothing new and criticises them for their coverage during the campaign.
-- Doesn't think Hillary is very good at communicating things, and was frustrated she never upped her game.
-- Interview ends with the blurb on elites in the tweet above.

Saudi Arabia accidentally prints textbook showing Yoda sitting next to the king https://t.co/P1wrDgoDp4— Telegraph News (@TelegraphNews) September 22, 2017
A Saudi Arabia textbook accidentally included an image of Star Wars character Yoda sitting next to King Faisal at the United Nations. The image originated from an art project juxtaposing moments in Arab history with film characters.
“The Ministry of Education regrets the inadvertent error,” said Ahmed al-Eissa, the Saudi education minister. “The ministry has began printing a corrected copy of the decision and withdrawing the previous versions, and has formed a legal committee to determine the source of the error and to take appropriate action.”

This is Part 10 of Lainey Blind Items Revealed. Lainey Gossip is a Canadian gossip blogger and entertainment insider who likes to write blind items on her website about celebrities. A blind item is a piece of gossip too raw for a journalist to publish without getting in legal trouble or revealing their source, so they write it as a riddle that you have to guess. Lainey has also dropped subtle clues about each riddle on her blog, revealing many of her blinds.
Check out part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.
This is the last in the series!
ONE MORE COUPLE TO MOURN
"Nothing to laugh about here -- this one we will all be sad about. All of us. Because it’s almost over for them. After rising together and stabilising together and conveniently finding a home together, where you’d think work would be so much easier, and having the babies too, they’re close to formally ending it, and there may be an announcement soon...which, well, if you look at him it doesn’t seem to have affected him physically. Everyone says he really cares about his appearance these days, more than ever, and is looking hotter than ever. Or, as one person put it, “hot all of a sudden”. Emotionally too he hasn’t let on that there’s anything wrong. For what it’s worth, I’m told there was no third party involvement. Perhaps that means it’s amicable, just the end of their story. Perhaps we’ll be more choked about it than they are. As I drench my waffles in more maple syrup."
Amy Poehler and Will Arnett
BECAUSE HE IGNORES HER
"Another week, another riddle involving a coke fiend. Everyone does it, but it's not the doing that's intriguing, it's the who's doing that's intriguing. Especially since her reputation is supposed to be so civilised and enlightened: a doting mother, a successful business, an artist (debatable), and an icon to many a MiniVan member. ironic as it may seem considering the original spirit of the inspiration.
The situation is actually even more shocking considering her past. Having had that kind of experience with addiction though, perhaps there are only 2 roads: to shun drugs fiercely or, as it is in this case, to embrace them dangerously in her time of need.
It's not just genes that keep her so thin.
Turns out it's a habit that's making her very sick. Friends and family are becoming concerned. They're saying "she's not doing well", observing that her use has dramatically escalated, that she is becoming increasingly anti-social and withdrawn, removed out of embarrassment from her usual circle, and when forced out in public, looking awkward and seemingly unable to cope in social settings where she was once comfortable.
It's not those laughable rumours of infidelity. It's actually because he ignores her. Never the child, but always her. Not deliberately but because she has no part in his life. It used to be he'd show up for the professional events, at the very least. Now she has to beg. And then it's only a maybe. He's not spiteful about it, he just doesn't care. Even on the forced holiday he could barely bother to acknowledge her and when they came home, he couldn't wait to get away.
So she retreats and she escapes and he still doesn't notice. When confronted about it by close confidantes, he insists there's not a problem. And he probably truly believes that, completely oblivious is he to her problems.
As such, her team is desperately trying to get her some new work, something else to focus on instead of moping around at home weighed down by disappointment.
Artistically though, it may be bad news. Forcing a project on the heels of something already forced is probably just going to lead to more shit.
Having said that, if it saves her, in the end, I guess that's what friends would do."
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick

WHO WOULD WANT TO WORK WITH THIS?
"She’s long had a reputation for being absolute hell to work with. I mean like straight up crazy. Leaves her sh-t, sometimes literally, everywhere, specifies exact times when people can or cannot talk to her, is foaming at the mouth insane one minute, calm and collected the next. Lately her opportunities have dried up. And this is a good example of why.
Press junket. A handler has to make sure she wakes up in the morning. Because she’s not a proper adult? She finds her completely out of it. Has to put her in the shower and HOLD HER UP. Picture that please. A grown woman having to be physically SUPPORTED in the shower to make sure she can go and do her JOB. She then had to be spoon fed her breakfast. And she had to be dressed. Like, let’s put on your socks! Finally they get her to the point where she can be seen in public. A journalist is soon expected for an interview. Through it all she’s still a f-cking zombie.
Soon as the reporter comes into the room though, a switch goes off. She’s alive. She’s engaging. She can speak in proper sentences. And you can imagine, for the people who’ve experienced this, who’ve had to work with her, who have to manage the unpredictability of this, how scary it must be, how utterly unsettling, even more unsettling than most of her peers. And in her business, that’s a pretty high standard."
ABUSING THE HELP
"Her husband would be shocked to learn how she behaves when he’s not home. Because on the outside, she is “supposedly” erudite, and classy, and goes on about being well mannered and respectful, but when she’s alone, without the eyes and ears of an audience, in the presence of only her household employees, this not so ladylike lady is a slob of the worst kind. But even more than this – she is mean, she is rude, and she treats people badly.
If the staff is making too much noise cleaning and dusting or simply cooking for her highness – she thunders down the stairs and puts her finger between the eyes of the offender, threatening termination of employment and a horrible referral. When she’s going through a “fat” day, it is pure mayhem. The breakfast tray that’s delivered to her in the morning gets smashed to the ground and if there are resulting stains from her tantrum, the blame falls on the help.
As awful as this sounds, it’s actually rather pedestrian when you consider what it’s like to work for the rich and the famous. Up to now, it’s been bearable. And then she crossed the line. She likes to smoke, you see. Especially when she’s on the phone. But she hates smoking outside. And she also can’t stay still. So she came up with the following brilliant request: every time she lit up, a staff person was required to follow her around, catching the ashes as she randomly flicked them about the house. Given that this happens several times a day, the other work was getting neglected. And the poor employee was forced to stay late. With no extra pay. I’m sure it wouldn’t surprise you to learn that the staffer quit after a couple of weeks of this kind of abuse. And rightly so. Why does being cheap and badly behaved always go hand in hand???"
MORE AMUSING AND ABUSING
"So you already know that she's a legendary slob. And you know about her outrageous housekeeping demands. But it seems our sadistic mistress also has some self image issues. What's new, right? The only problem is, sometimes she can't wait to get to the bathroom before purging her binge. When it's one of those days, the poor staffers can do nothing else but clean up a messy trail all around the house. And dealing with her hysterics doesn't help either. But then again, it is certainly a sight to behold when she pulls it all together in time for the arrival of her husband. Oh, if he only knew…"
DISRESPECTING YOUR ELDERS
"Huge egos are not rare in showbiz. But few egos are bigger than his. Perhaps the personal and professional victories are starting to swell his head. Whatever the case, his behaviour is starting to raise eyebrows.
At an industry event last week, major players in attendance, old and new, veterans of the game and newcomers too, he was given a gift, presented to him by a recognized and very well respected elder in the business. It was supposed to be an honour, a guitar pick used by a living legend. But instead of treasuring it like anyone else would have, would you believe he flicked it on the ground and crushed it beneath his shoe??? The room was shocked into stillness. No wonder people find it so hard to believe he’s turned a new leaf. Clearly, he hasn’t."
THE NON-MARITAL BED
"What is emotional cheating anyway? Is it considered emotional cheating when you can't throw away the bed you used to share with the love of your life - the one you DIDN'T marry? Is it emotional cheating when you keep a custom made 4 poster extra King locked in storage and cannot bear to give it away? Is it emotional cheating to hang on such things but sleep next to another? Is it emotional cheating to go on a rip roaring rage upon discovering that the ex has moved on? With marriage prospects of her own? To fall into a funk, despite the carefully choreographed photo opps of the warring women in your life?"
A TALE OF TWO GROOMS
"Groom #1 was recently married, publicly devoted, demons supposedly tucked away, and yet was seen driving his unmistakeable vehicle into a hotel parking lot the other day. A hotel parking lot in his home town, where his home is just a few minutes away, and his wife was occupied in another state. There was no business meeting scheduled, there was no professional reason to be there - and yet and yet. Whoever could he have been up to?
Then there's the friend, Groom #2, also recently wed, also known for hard core hittin', the two shared one memorable evening just one year ago, even after #1 was claimed off the market. It was an evening involving multiple young ladies, a pool, naked swimming, a Hummer, and a long night of down home loving. Two seasoned horndogs feeding off each other and off Jim Beam, living the debaucherous life - it was a night to remember and perhaps the reason why #2's new wife curtailed their celebrations, wary of what might happen should her husband be tempted by the high times of the past.
Can these two grooms be tamed? The second perhaps. But the first? No one thinks no. No one at all."
Groom #1 is Keith Urban and Groom #2 is Kid Rock

THE BELLE FROM HELL
"Now here's a bitch who needs a slap to Sunday.
Sure, she's rich. But in a town that only celebrates your recent success, what gives her the right to throw her shit around? Especially when the glory decade has long since wrapped?
A while back, when she had reason to self celebrate, she came home to inform her hardworking personal chef that she had invited several guests over for dinner. With only just a few hours lead, the employee was required to whip up something elegant and delicious, something she accomplished in spades. Hoping for a word of encouragement or at least an expression of gratitude, the unfortunate minion greeted her boss the next day, asking her how things went, how she was feeling. And this is what she got in return:
'I really wish you wouldn't talk to me', followed by heavy footsteps out of the kitchen.
Cut to present day, and apparently the assy manners are still intact.
She's scheduled for a promotional product appearance and a driver is sent to pick her up. She gets in the car, he gets her settled, and politely asks her how she's finding everything, if she's comfortable, how she's enjoying the weather. And you know what she said?
'What gives you the idea that I want you to talk to me'. Cue very loud exhale and the silent treatment the rest of the way.
Now I know this shouldn't be shocking considering the clientele we're dealing with but when you're brought up to exude charm and grace, how is this anywhere near acceptable? And you wonder why snarky celebrity gossip blogs are popping up all over the place???"

BIG SUPER SECRET HOOKUP
"There’s a reason she recently decided to flaunt her brand new relationship so publicly. Suddenly she’d found true love behind the scenes? And they were telling magazines about it? And getting papped on holiday in Europe? It was because she was sending a message.
To the major Hollywood player with whom she’d been having an affair for 6 months. Only, at the time, he had a girlfriend. They were dealing with each other undercover. She would travel to see him while he was shooting on location overseas. No one, none of us, picked up on the fact that she showed up in the same city. He was sleeping with both the official girlfriend and the side job and telling the side job that he’d break up with the official one and make her the bonafide but, really, the side job, to him, was just a good f-ck and not a proper escort at the kinds of functions he usually needs an escort for. She continued to pressure him though and when he refused her demands, she showed up with a new man, jammed it in his face – and ours – and very shortly afterwards, he formally ended it with his gf, with a generous send-off.
Now? Impasse. She’s enjoying her summer hookup. And he’s all like, ok, I’m available, you can come to me, or don’t. It’s not like he can’t find a replacement, like, right away. Any woman becomes an instant star as soon as he takes her out. Given that she’s already a star, on a smaller scale, their reveal, should they figure out their situation, would be great for gossip though it could overshadow his work. And he has a lot of it coming up."

A NEW LOW & A LOWER LOW
"Man, does this girl ever have her share of skeletons. We’re going back a little while but I guess some things never change. And it’s especially shocking considering that she doesn’t exactly have to beg for professional attention.
On the set. She’s lonely. She’s desperate. She’s had a bad day of shooting. She needs a pick me up. A certain married crew member has caught her eye. And he has shunned her every attempt at flirtation, even though the Mrs. is far, far away. On this occasion however, the actress was particularly persuasive. And if you are prudish – you do NOT want to read the next part. Consider yourself warned.
Come on, she said, you don’t have to touch me. Just let me go down on you, baby. Please. Please let me just taste you. Shocker of shockers - Can you believe he turned her away???
You’d assume she’d have the married man fired for his rejection…right? Well actually, she didn’t. It intrigued her, it only increased her fancy. And so she continued to proposition him with more and more outrageous offers. Now here’s the one that almost broke him – CAUTION NOT FOR THE PRUDISH. I have a friend, she said. A girl friend. She’ll come with me and you can have us both. From any direction.
I’m not going to lie, gossips. He was very, very tempted. But since he was already gettin’ it pretty good from a cute little blonde extra without the baggage, he actually passed. The star was apparently unfazed. She didn’t hold a grudge and she wasn’t upset. But she persisted, every single day, until the end of the shoot."

"There are 2 subjects to this riddle. Both are famous, one more so than the other, and both are actors. One is recognized for award winning prestige projects. The other – umm….not so much. But he does have brawn. And while I don’t appreciate the shoot ‘em up, beat ‘em up genre, there is certainly a market for it. Unfortunately for his legion of female admirers, he prefers sex of the homo variety. And he’s looking for a boyfriend.
For his part, the true thespian has battled gay suspicions for years. I’ve heard it incessantly but I can’t confirm it. Oddly enough, no one in Hollywood knows for sure either. So it’s no surprise that his less talented counterpart decided to hit on him one night recently at a party. And my man came on STRONG. Bad move. Too many people around and not the right approach. He was completely rebuffed. With a room full of witnesses. And it gets worse. The next day, one publicist called the other and issued a stern warning and they also came to an agreement to make sure their clients never cross paths again. And since one dude is clearly more connected than the other, I can assure you that Mr B list was rebuked and ridiculed around town so much that he had to lay low for a while before venturing out in public once again."

As someone who actually likes this series, Barry Pepper deserves a better career.
* Final fight between the Anuk-Ite & Scott. He makes himself blind but gets better because of Malia. I guess they're soulmates?
* Monroe escapes and rebuilds her own hunter network (#BlackGirlMagic?)
* Melissa & her son's ex's father get together (I mean, #sure)
* We end meeting some new-new I don't care about (and neither do you) but Mason becomes the new emissary in training, and the pack comes together to meet/protect the new-new, leaving it open ended for possibly more (the answer is #NO Jeff)
I almost also linked the #AfterAfterShow but it was too corny. How did you feel about this finale ONTD?
