Hilarie Burton Turned Down Hallmark Project After She Says They Denied Diverse Casting Request

Hilarie Burton Turned Down Hallmark Project After She Says They Denied Diverse Casting Request

“Just going through some old emails from a #Hallmark job I was ‘let go’ from back in January. I had insisted on a LGBTQ character, an interracial couple and diverse casting,” Hilarie tweeted. “I was polite, direct and professional. But after the execs gave their notes on the script and NONE of my requests were honored, I was told ‘take it or leave it.’”

“I left it. And the paycheck. Sh–ty being penalized for standing up for inclusivity,” Hilarie continued. “I really wanted that job. It was close to my house. It paid really well. It was about the military, which you all know I hold dear.”

Hilarie then went on to praise her husband Jeffrey Dean Morgan for all of his hard work so that she can “choose morals over paying bills,” but admits that without him working, they wouldn’t be able to pay their bills.

“Key point here: I have a wonderful husband @JDMorgan who works his ass off so I have the luxury to choose morals over paying bills,” Hilarie concluded. “Not everyone has that! Nor should we be forced to be dependent. If I had to cover our mortgage and was told ‘take it or leave it,’ I’d be f–ked.”

Hilarie‘s tweets come after the Hallmark Channel removed a commercial from wedding registry company Zola, which featured a same-sex couple on their wedding day.

Also in attendance was the movie’s director, producer and star Danny A. Abeckaser along with Patricia‘s boyfriend Eric White, Camila Morrone, The Hills cast member Brandon Lee, and Empire creator Danny Strong with fiance Caitlin Mehner.

Here’s the synopsis of the movie: Mob Town is inspired by an ill-fated Mafia summit meeting in 1957 in the small town of Apalachin, New York. State Trooper Edgar Croswell, (Arquette), became suspicious that mobsters were gathering at the rural estate of Joseph Barbara (Abeckaser). Croswell called in reinforcements and set up a roadblock. The mobsters, including prominent New York bosses Vito Genovese, Carlo Gambino, Joe Profaci and Joe Bonanno panicked, trying to flee the scene. The event revealed once and for all that the Mafia existed in America, forcing once-skeptical FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover to ramp up his agency’s efforts to fight organized crime.

Mob Town is out in select theaters now – check out the trailer now!

Kanye West & Jay-Z Reunite at Diddy's Birthday Party After Years of Feuding

Kanye West & Jay-Z Reunite at Diddy's Birthday Party After Years of Feuding

Kanye West and Jay-Z are back together again!

The two rappers hung out together while they attended close pal Sean “Diddy” Combs50th birthday bash on Saturday night (December 14).

In a few photos and videos taken inside the party, Kanye and Jay can be seen laughing and hanging out while their wives, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian, sat pretty close to each other.

The party marked the first public outing the two have attended together after years of feuding.

The rocky relationship between the two started in 2014 after Jay and Beyonce didn’t attend Kanye and Kim‘s wedding in Italy.

Two years later, Kanye went on a rant during one of his concerts, saying that their daughters North, 6, and Blue Ivy, 7, have never had a playdate before slamming Jay and Beyonce for not checking in on Kim after her Paris robbery.

Jay then called out Kanye‘s erratic behavior on his track “Kill JAY-Z” and later said they fought over a money dispute involving Tidal.

“What really hurt me, you can’t bring my kid or my wife into it,” Jay later said in a radio interview. “We’ve gotten past bigger issues, but you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem with me.”

Then in 2017, Jay revealed that he and Kanye were back on speaking terms, telling T, The New York Times Style Magazine, “I love Kanye. I do. It’s a complicated relationship with us… It’s just that there’s certain things that happened that’s not really acceptable to me. And we just need to speak about it. But there’s genuine love there.”

In November 2017, Kim and Beyonce both attended Serena Williams‘ wedding and were seen talking and ordering champagne together.

Chelsea Handler is speaking out to pay tribute to her late sidekick Chuy Bravo, who passed away over the weekend.

No details about Chuy‘s death have been revealed yet, but he reportedly died “suddenly” on Saturday night (December 14) while in Mexico City.

“I loved this nugget in a big way, and I took great pleasure in how many people loved him as much as I did and do. @chuybravo gave us so much laughter and I’ll never forget the sound of his laughter coming from his office into mine. Or his ‘business calls’ with his ‘business manager,’ or his shoe rack with all his children-sized shoes,” Chelsea wrote on Instagram.

Chelsea also told a story about what happened when Chuy came to visit her family for Christmas one year.

“I’ll never forget him coming to Christmas with my family one year in the Florida keys, and when my niece who was 5 or 6 at the time—saw him, she ran in the other direction saying she was scared,” she said. “My sister and I were mortified and were apologizing to Chuy, who told us, ‘it’s ok, lots of little kids get scared when they see big kids coming their way.’ I love you, Chuy!
