'Gossip Girl' Reboot Will Be More Diverse: 'The Leads Are Nonwhite'

'Gossip Girl' Reboot Will Be More Diverse: 'The Leads Are Nonwhite'

The upcoming Gossip Girl reboot is set to more accurately reflect the diversity of New York City.

Writer and producer Joshua Safran just revealed that the cast of the new HBO Max show will include more representation.

“There was not a lot of representation the first time around on the show. Even when I went to private school in New York in the ‘90s, the school didn’t necessarily reflect what was on Gossip Girl. So, this time around the leads are nonwhite,” Joshua said during Vulture Festival.

He added that “there’s a lot of queer content on this show.”

“It is very much dealing with the way the world looks now, where wealth and privilege come from, and how you handle that. The thing I can’t say is there is a twist, and that all relates to the twist,” Joshua teased.

Charlize Theron Stuns in White While Being Honored at Glamour Women of the Year Awards

Charlize Theron looks stunning on the red carpet while attending the 2019 Glamour Women of the Year Awards on Monday (November 11) at Alice Tully Hall in New York City.

The Oscar-winning actress was joined at the event by the other honorees – director Ava DuVernay, Grown-ish actress Yara Shahidi, soccer player Megan Rapinoe, fashion designer Tory Burch, and “The Handmaid’s Tale” author Margaret Atwood.

The other women being honored this year are activist Greta Thunberg and the Women of the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES).

“Throughout this year at Glamour, we have celebrated women that are going big, whose influence we’ve felt reverberating beyond just a single moment. When we started to think about who to honor as our Women of the Year, we realized that these women are not just promoting one issue or one conversation, they are using their voices and platforms to have a lasting impact for generations to come,” Glamour editor-in-chief Samantha Barry said about the honorees. “This group of exceptional women are having the tough conversations that open doors, and forge new paths on issues ranging from equal pay to climate change. They’re inspiring cross generational people globally and we are proud to honor them as Women of the Year.”

Regina King Explains How She Chooses Her Movies Roles

Regina King Explains How She Chooses Her Movies Roles

Regina King looks glamorous on the cover of S/magazine‘s Winter 2020 issue, on newsstands November 12th.

Here’s what the 48-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On selecting movie roles: “I’m looking for great story telling where it feels honest. Even if it’s comedy, it’s rooted in truth. That’s simply what I’m looking for. It just happened that the projects that spoke to me the loudest were ones that are really steeped in social commentary and experiences, and that are reflective of the world that we’re in.”

On her role as Sister Knight on Watchmen: “I feel like Angela kind of represents all of us in a lot of regards. One of the things I feel like makes her truly a window or mirror is that, in real life, we’re wearing different masks all the time. We all kind of navigate through life [like that]…I feel like I’ve never seen a woman like her on TV. And because of that, I felt like I had this special opportunity to create someone. That was just super exciting for me.”

On her Oscar-winning role in If Beale Street Could Talk: “It’s so hard to put it in just the moment, because it was such a journey from the first time I had a conversation with Barry. Throughout the entire process, I’ve had several moments of pinching myself…It was a year-and-a-half of a moment for me. The actual moment of winning might have been a moment of exhaling.”

Pamela Anderson Praises the Trumps While Asking for a Favor

Pamela Anderson Praises the Trumps While Asking for a Favor

Pamela Anderson has written an open letter to President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, in which she praises them as a couple while also asking for a favor.

The 52-year-old former Baywatch actress is trying to get her friend, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, a presidential pardon.

“I am always enlightened and encouraged when I see the great work that you both have achieved during your period as the leading couple of the people. You complement each other extremely well, Mr President with your personal touch and emotional flare that strikes a chord with the people, together with the enduring poise and presented dignity that the first lady upholds,” Pamela wrote in the open letter.

She added, “Integrity was certainly the underlying thread that defeated Hillary and brought to the world this great couple, cannoning you into the most powerful position in the world.”

In the letter, Pamela points out that Trump was once a fan of WikiLeaks.

“If you were to pardon Julian Assange and not allow the legal precedent of extradition of a fact publishing journalist for a life of torture, then the people would salute your action. You will be forever remembered as the champion you were always destined to be and the people would truly salute you for such a gesture. It would always be remembered as your legacy to the world and the people could never be fooled otherwise,” she wrote.

Pamela also took to Twitter and shared photos with the Trumps when she attended Donald‘s birthday party in 2005.

Tim McGraw Reveals His Romantic Anniversary Gift for Faith Hill

Tim McGraw celebrated 23 years of marriage with wife Faith Hill last month and he revealed the romantic thing he did as a gift!

The 52-year-old country singer opened up during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, which aired on Monday (November 11).

“I was in Australia, I think, this was the first anniversary we were apart,” Tim said. “We were backstage and I recorded the very first song we ever did together. We did the Spontaneous Combustion Tour where we met when she was opening for me on my very first headlining tour, and we used to do the Tony Rich song ‘Nobody Knows It But Me.’ So I recorded it backstage with the guys and sent it to her.”

Kelly Clarkson approved as she’s a big fan of the song as well!
