8:44 AM PT -- Shocker ... Lacey says the video was a planned stunt -- "created by both parties" -- to promote an event in Edmonton. Hey, at least it was entertaining! This is absolutely awesome ... WWE star Lacey Evans did NOT break character for one iota of a second while being pulled over by cops in Canada. Now, THAT is nasty. The southern belle wrestling personality recorded an encounter she had with police in Edmonton, Alberta over the weekend -- where she was being given a ticket for allegedly speeding down the highway. To non-WWE fans, it might've come off as intense. In the video that Lacey posted to her own social media, you can see her get pretty testy with the relatively friendly and polite officer. Oh, Canada ... never change. 1.Canada is terrible.🇺🇸#YaNasty pic.twitter.com/EsqRSaj4iV— Lacey Evans ~ WWE Superstar (@LaceyEvansWWE) September 21, 2019 @LaceyEvansWWE As he comes back to her car to hand her the ticket, Lacey goes off on him ... … [Read more...] about WWE’s Lacey Evans Says Canadian Police Stop Video Was Planned Stunt
Breaking News Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane says he only blew a .03 before he was arrested for DUI in Washington this weekend -- and is now questioning why he was taken into custody in the first place. "A fail is a 0.08 right? I blew 0.03," Lane tweeted (and then deleted) ... "Why was still arrest? I'll leave it at that." He included an emoji of a dark-skinned person possibly alleging race was a factor. He continued to engage with fans who wanted to know more. One person asked why he agreed to take a breathalyzer at all -- he replied, "Either way you go you still to jail that makes you look guilty. I had nothing to hide so I did it." Another person accused Lane of testing positive for weed. He replied, "Lol oh I took weed test now?" As we previously reported, Lane was arrested for DUI early Sunday morning. Cops have still not released details about the incident. … [Read more...] about NFL’s Jeremy Lane: I Wasn’t Drunk, DUI Arrest Is B.S.
Dan Futterman ('The Looming Tower'), Courtney Kemp ('Power'), Peter Morgan ('The Crown'), Bruce Miller ('The Handmaid's Tale'), David Shore ('The Good Doctor') and Lena Waithe ('The Chi') open up about race in the writers room, shooting awkward sex scenes and killing off favorite characters: "I was crying while I typed their demise." A gathering of top showrunners can quickly devolve into a type of therapy session about dealing with audience pressures and network demands. But when this sextet — The Looming Tower's Dan Futterman, 50; Power's Courtney Kemp, 41; The Crown's Peter Morgan, 55; The Handmaid's Tale's Bruce Miller, 53; The Good Doctor's David Shore, 58; and The Chi's Lena Waithe, 33 — gathered on a late-April morning for The Hollywood Reporter's annual Drama Showrunner Roundtable, it managed to avoid the usual subjects of writerly angst, save some musings from Morgan, who lamented a U.K. system that doesn't nurture writers rooms as well as U.S. shows do. "You … [Read more...] about “All of Us Are on the Verge of Bad Health and Insanity”: The Drama Showrunner Roundtable

The 1975 reflect on modern communication and its troubling propensity for valuing irony over honesty on their new song, “Sincerity is Scary.” It will appear on their forthcoming third album, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. “You lack substance when you say/ Something like, ‘Oh, what a shame,'” Matty Healy sings over piano and horn-inflected melodies on the tender song. “It’s just a self-referential way that stops you having to be human.” The earnest sentiments feed into the warm chorus of voices on the hook, which implores, “Why can’t we be friends, when we are lovers?” The song follows the British quartet’s previously released A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships singles “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME,” “Love It if We Made It” and “Give Yourself a Try.” Their upcoming LP is the follow-up to 2016’s I Like it When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet so … [Read more...] about Hear the 1975’s Tender Song ‘Sincerity Is Scary’
