After years of false starts and multiple actresses attached (including Amy Schumer and Anne Hathaway) Warner Bros.’ Barbie movie is moving forward with Margot Robbie and (possibly) Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins. I know what you’re thinking: son of a bitch, does this mean we have to see the Barbie movie? Yes. Yes it does. As someone who never played with Barbies (I was more of a TMNT girl) I can safely say that this movie has held zero interest for me. But damn, Robbie is not only a tremendous actress (I, Tonya was the best film of 2017, come at me) but she is a shrewd producer as well. It was Robbie who was instrumental in hiring Cathy Yan to direct Birds of Prey and she’s made it clear that it’s important for the film to feature a diverse cast. And then there’s Jenkins, the highest paid female director in Hollywood and the force of nature behind the Wonder Woman franchise. Considering that Jenkins can write her own ticket and truly do whatever she … [Read more...] about Margot Robbie and Patty Jenkins are in Talks to Join the Barbie Movie So I Guess We’re Seeing the Barbie Movie Now?
Dragon’s beard candy.I hadn’t heard of this confection until last week, when one of my kids insisted I watched a how-to video they’d seen on YouTube. “It’s like hand-pulled cotton candy,” they explained as they searched for a video to show me. The most popular one appears to be Inga Lam’s video for Buzzfeed, which was uploaded in April and already has more than 4 million views. As you know, I’m a big fan of taking on YouTube-inspired projects with my kids, from homemade slime to Angry Bird cupcakes. (Those Jell-O cookies were kind of gross, though.)RELATED: Kid-friendly boredom busters: Make your own MunchPak snack boxes The bright (and not-so-bright) side of making Jell-O cookies The host says she grew up seeing this candy in Hong Kong and had always wanted to try it. Through her trial-and-error, I knew we’d need a lot of cornstarch and that we couldn’t heat the candy to over 270 degrees.

[email protected] speaks out exclusively to @arobach on Harvey Weinstein’s arrest: “I have to admit I didn’t think I would see the day that he would have handcuffs on him.” pic.twitter.com/grAxiSAqlc — Good Morning America (@GMA) May 25, 2018 Rose McGowan has been fighting for decades to put Harvey Weinstein in cuffs, but now that he’s turned himself in to face charges, the actress said she feels shocked. “I have to admit I didn’t think I would see the day that he would have handcuffs on him,” she told Good Morning America. But with the acumen of someone who’s been in the business a long time, she pointed out that the timing of the arraignment works in Weinstein’s favor. “Now, of course, it’s been orchestrated so it’s on a Friday of a holiday weekend so that’s slow media,” she explained. “So they did something nice for him. That means he has friends in high places still.” “But … [Read more...] about Rose McGowan Scoffs At Harvey Weinstein’s Holiday Weekend Arraignment: ‘I Guess He Still Has Friends In High Places’
[email protected] asks @Comey to respond to comments made about him by Rudy Giuliani, who Comey worked for back in 1987: “I guess the love is gone,” Comey said. #PostLive pic.twitter.com/W3kuEJnVGe — Washington Post Live (@postlive) May 8, 2018 James Comey‘s relationship with Rudy Giuliani has changed quite a bit over the years. In a live talk with the Washington Post on Tuesday, the former FBI director was unsparing when describing just how much the two former colleagues have recently diverged. Interviewer Carol Leonnig started off, noting, “In your book you also talk a little bit about what I find really interesting, the beginning of your career as a prosecutor. And you write as a young person in 1987 working for someone no other than Rudy Giuliani.” Leonnig then read a brief passage from Comey’s memoir wherein Comey lavishes praise on his one-time boss while at the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Comey writes, and Leonnig recites: I loved it that … [Read more...] about Comey on His Former Boss Rudy Giuliani: ‘I Guess the Love is Gone’
