"It's going to be very difficult, but I just want to be very open-minded and have fun and get to know these women."</p> <p>Soules emerged as a frontrunner to become the next star of <em>The Bachelor</em> after becoming a viewer favorite in the late stages of <em>The Bachelorette</em>’s tenth season. Though he seemed like the most probable choice ever since his elimination, Harrison didn’t announce Soules as the next Bachelor on the <em>After the Final Rose </em>special, when the next Bachelor is traditionally announced.</p> <p>“There are <a href="http://popwatch.ew.com/2014/07/29/chris-harrison-blogs-the-bachelorette-andi-finale/" target="_blank">endless discussions and heated debates</a> on which direction to go and what to do,” Harrison explained at the time. “We are very close to making that decision, but the only big mistake we could really make is to rush this and try to get it done in time for last night’s show.”</p> <p>In addition to Soules, runner-up <strong>Nick Viall, Marquel Martin</strong> (who would have the show’s first black Bachelor) and <strong>Arie Luyendyk</strong>, who competed on season eight of <em>The Bachelorette</em> for <strong>Emily Maynard</strong>’s heart were in the running. Luyendyk, seemingly piqued about not getting picked, broke the news about Soules before the official announcement on <em>Good Morning America.</em></p> <p> </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"> <p>I'm not the Bachelor, have fun on the farm people ✌️</p> — Arie Luyendyk Jr. (@ariejr) <a href="https://twitter.com/ariejr/statuses/504065778535387136">August 26, 2014</a></blockquote> <br /> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p> </p> <p>Among those pulling for Soules, was <strong>Patrick Jagodzinski</strong>, who, like him, was one of Dorfman’s suitors on <em>The Bachelorette</em>. “I think <a href="http://uinterview.com/news/bachelorette-contestant-patrick-jagodzinski-on-andi-dorfmans-pick-of-josh-murray-and-who-should-be-the-next-bachelor-exclusive-12307" target="_blank">Chris is going to be the perfect fit</a>,” Jagodzinski, who’d spoken to Soules after filming wrapped on <em>The Bachelorette</em>, told uInterview exclusively. “He’s such a standup guy.

The usually soft-spoken athlete has been charged with domestic battery and aggravated assault—charges he has pled not guilty to. Little Rock officers reported that Taylor was arrested quietly and without incident.</p> <p> </p> <p>The altercation had taken place between Taylor, Hinton and another man, who has remained unidentified. Police confirmed that while Hinton remains in serious condition, the third man was not harmed in any way. What led to the altercation has not been released.</p> <h1> Jermain Taylor’s Boxing Career, “Retirement” And Return</h1> <p>Taylor is not only a former middleweight champion, but on Olympic competitor as well. In 2000, Taylor represented the United States in the Olympics in Sydney where he won a bronze medal in boxing. He made his professional debut the next year, winning his first 25 bouts, including fights against former champions <strong>Raul Marquez</strong> and <strong>William Joppy</strong> before defeating <strong>Bernard Hopkins </strong>for the middleweight championship.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/w929Bj8_5yY" width="420"></iframe></p> <p>In early 2010, the then-32 year old Taylor announced he was taking a break from boxing that many considered his way of quietly retiring. Rumors of this fluttered until he return was announced over a year later.</p> <p>It was largely suggested that Taylor took this break because of the knockout he received during the Super Six World Boxing Classic tournament in his bout against <strong>Arthur Abraham</strong>, making for the third time in his professional career that he suffered a knockout. He was diagnosed with a severe concussion and had difficulties with his short term memory and could not remember the details of his fight with Abraham.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/HvTSqk0ZsJQ" width="560"></iframe></p> <p>Taylor returned 26 months later to face <strong>Jessie Nicklow</strong> where he won by TKO in the eighth round.</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p>Wed, 27 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/cg45otwwz5wk8/iedsbukin00s4/4clfjhcom5v5/28jpfklfo/r938kfcqrub/enaf25992zkgcss/v3hvtdh1t80o4g/165r45emggis8g8s4w/1ewor5alj84gk4o/3f681i3h32m8g<![CDATA[Kate Bush Returns To The Stage For The First Time in 35 Years]]>http://uinterview.com/news/kate-bush-returns-to-the-stage-for-the-first-time-in-35-years-12664<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/kate-bush-returns-to-the-stage-for-the-first-time-in-35-years-12664'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/9ac3ddcdc9c5b1231fdb6f1f5ea89762-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Kate Bush, </strong>most famous for her songs “Running Up That Hill” and “Don’t Give Up,” had her first live performance in 35 years on Tuesday to unanimously positive reviews.</p> <h1> #KateBush: Singer Returns After 35 Years</h1> <p> </p> <p>Bush put on a dramatic stage show at London’s Eventim Apollo venue—involving surrealist sets, monsters and paper airplanes. <strong>David Mitchell</strong>, author of <em>Cloud Atlas</em> and the upcoming <em>The Bone Clocks</em>, who is known for his unreal concepts and imagery, helped Bush develop the visuals and themes apparently in the show.</p> <p>Her 35-year absence has long been contributed to several factors. She wanted to tend to her then-young family, she was a known perfectionist who wanted everything just right, and early on in her (first and final) tour in 1979, her lighting director fell to his death.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/T5wkTpyNfmo" width="420"></iframe></p> <p>In the United States, Bush was known for her single “Running Up That Hill” which received a resurgence in popularity the last few years after it was covered by Placebo, slowing it down and increasing the hypnotic aspects of the lyrics and music.</p> <p>Security was on-hand to make sure that smart phones did not record the performance. It’s likely that Bush’s return was filmed and will be released on Blu-Ray or DVD sooner or later.</p> <h1> Public Response To Kate Bush’s Concert</h1> <p>Despite some complaints about the smart phone policy, fans and critics were very pleased with the return. Many were concerned that Bush, who turned 56 in July, would no longer have voice the elastic voice—capable of hitting nearly any note—she once did. However, she apparently didn’t miss a note.</p> <p>“Her voice too is in remarkable condition: she's note-perfect throughout,” <strong>Alexis Petridis</strong>, writer for the <em>Guardian</em>, said.</p> <p>Also in attendance were celebrity fans including <strong>Anna Calvi,</strong> <strong>Lily Allen, Bjork</strong>—all artists that were influenced by Kate Bush. <strong>David Gilmour</strong> of Pink Floyd was also among the crowd. In the past, Gilmour worked with Bush as one of his many side gigs and helped launch her career.</p> <p> </p>Wed, 27 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/cg45otwwz5wk8/iedsbukin00s4/4clfjhcom5v5/28jpfklfo/r938kfcqrub/enaf25992zkgcss/v3hvtdh1t80o4g/165r45emggis8g8s4w/1ewor5alj84gk4o/199sveyd81uswg<![CDATA[Amy Poehler And Adam Scott On Set Of 'Parks & Recreation']]>http://uinterview.com/news/amy-poehler-and-adam-scott-on-set-of-parks-and-recreation-12662<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/amy-poehler-and-adam-scott-on-set-of-parks-and-recreation-12662'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/5fd4faa4aa06fc73a7f9d582184bc2a7-150x150.jpeg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Amy Poehler </strong>and <strong>Adam Scott </strong>were spotted taking a drink break in between filming scenes for the seventh and final season of <em>Parks and Recreation</em> Tuesday afternoon.</p> <h1> Amy Poehler, Adam Scott Film 'Parks & Rec'</h1> <p>On the <em>Parks and Recreation</em> set in Pasadena, Calif., Poehler was dressed up in a strapless purple gown.

Nochimson</strong>. When Nochimson asked the question, Chase’s initial response was to ask with exasperation, "Why are we talking about this?" After Nochimson said it was mere curiosity, he shook his head “no,” adding, “No, he isn’t.” Other than confirming that Tony lived, Chase offered no further details.</p> <p>When the <em>Sopranos'</em> finale aired in June 2007, there was widespread debate about what became of Tony, the series protagonist brought to life by the<a href="http://uinterview.com/tag/james-gandolfini" target="_blank"> late James Gandolfini. </a>Some thought he lived, maybe long enough to get brought to prison, but the vast majority believed that he was killed.</p> <p>In the last scene, Tony is out to dinner at a popular restaurant, sitting at a table with his wife Carmela (<strong>Edie Falco</strong>) and son A.J. (<strong>Robert Iler</strong>). They’re waiting for Meadow (<strong>Jamie-Lynn Sigler</strong>), who’s rushing to the dinner, dashing through cars after swiftly pulling into a parking space. Before she meets up with her family, the scene fades to black and then the credits roll.</p> <p>The ambiguity of the final scene was not only divisive when it came to interpreting what became of the mob leader, but polarizing in that some thought it genius, while others were left disappointed. Opinions aside, Chase has cleared the air about Tony Sopranos' fate.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/rnT7nYbCSvM" width="300"></iframe></p>Wed, 27 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/cg45otwwz5wk8/iedsbukin00s4/4clfjhcom5v5/28jpfklfo/r938kfcqrub/enaf25992zkgcss/v3hvtdh1t80o4g/165r45emggis8g8s4w/1ewor5alj84gk4o/d34a4mtz3egwo<![CDATA[Celebrities Celebrate National Dog Day On Twitter]]>http://uinterview.com/news/celebrities-celebrate-national-dog-day-on-twitter-12660<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/celebrities-celebrate-national-dog-day-on-twitter-12660'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/8b0ee0844d25321b949d153079791a12-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p>National Dog Day was celebrated on Tuesday, with many celebrities tweeting out photos of their dogs.</p> <h1> National Dog Day</h1> <p>Founded by <strong>Colleen Paige</strong> in 2004, National Dog Day celebrates man’s best friend and was created to help raise awareness to stop puppy mills and encourage adopting dogs.</p> <p>“I want this to be a day to encourage dog ownership of all breeds, mixed and pure – to help abolish puppy mills and end breed specific legislation so we can create a world where all dogs (and every animal) can live a happy, save and ‘<a href="http://www.nationaldogday.com/#!about1/c141h" target="_blank">abuse-free life,</a>’” Paige states on the National Dog Day official website.</p> <p>National Dog Day quickly took over Twitter, and many celebrities took part in the celebration, sharing photos of their dogs.</p> <p> </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"> <p>Happy <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/NationalDogDay?src=hash">#NationalDogDay</a> from your uncle <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Machete?src=hash">#Machete</a> 🐶🔪 <a href="http://t.co/F1sPk6aRoW">pic.twitter.com/F1sPk6aRoW</a></p> — Danny Trejo (@officialDannyT) <a href="https://twitter.com/officialDannyT/statuses/504484627881275395">August 27, 2014</a></blockquote> <br /> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p> </p> <p> </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"> <p>In honor of <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/nationalDOGday?src=hash">#nationalDOGday</a>, me and 2 of my roommates. <a href="http://t.co/jc9wEiYCbB">pic.twitter.com/jc9wEiYCbB</a></p> — Emmy Rossum (@emmyrossum) <a href="https://twitter.com/emmyrossum/statuses/504388791843713024">August 26, 2014</a></blockquote> <br /> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p> </p> <p> </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"> <p>Happy <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/NationalDogDay?src=hash">#NationalDogDay</a> <a href="http://t.co/n65OfpaMpy">pic.twitter.com/n65OfpaMpy</a></p> — Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) <a href="https://twitter.com/rickygervais/statuses/504349569702821888">August 26, 2014</a></blockquote> <br /> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p> </p> <p> </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"> <p>"I have just met you, and I love you." <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/NationalDogDay?src=hash">#NationalDogDay</a> <a href="http://t.co/ZRSbMrErIc">pic.twitter.com/ZRSbMrErIc</a></p> — Disney (@Disney) <a href="https://twitter.com/Disney/statuses/504327472541106176">August 26, 2014</a></blockquote> <br /> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p> </p> <p> </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"> <p>My crew. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/NationalDogDay?src=hash">#NationalDogDay</a> <a href="http://t.co/lYFQ1vLTpT">pic.twitter.com/lYFQ1vLTpT</a></p> — Theo Rossi (@Theorossi) <a href="https://twitter.com/Theorossi/statuses/504417230335930369">August 26, 2014</a></blockquote> <br /> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p> </p> <p> </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"> <p>Happy National Dog The Bounty Hunter Day everyone!</p> — Josh Charles (@MrJoshCharles) <a href="https://twitter.com/MrJoshCharles/statuses/504394074015932416">August 26, 2014</a></blockquote> <br /> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p> </p> <h1> Women's Equality Day</h1> <p>August 26th is also Women’s Equality Day, and has been since 1971.

Rocker, who pitched in the 1999 World Series against the Yankees, might have an awkward run on <em>Survivor</em>. He may be known for playing in the Major Leagues, but Rocker is also famous for an interview he gave in 1999, in which he repeatedly called gay people “f----ts” and made racist comments, among other unsavory remarks.</p> <p>“I would retire first [before playing for a New York team]. It’s the most hectic, nerve-racking city. Imagine having to take the 7 train to the ballpark, looking like you’re [riding through] Beirut next to some kid with purple hair next to some queer with AIDS right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. <a href="http://www.si.com/vault/1999/12/27/271860/at-full-blast-shooting-outrageously-from-the-lip-braves-closer-john-rocker-bangs-away-at-his-favorite-targets-the-mets-their-fans-their-city-and-just-about-everyone-in-it" target="_blank">It’s depressing</a>,” Rocker said in an interview with <em>Sports Illustrated</em>.</p> <p>When asked whether he was worried his fellow <em>Survivor</em> contestants would recognize him and remember his comments, Rocker brushed it off, saying, “<a href="http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/08/27/survivor-john-rocker-amazing-race-twins-spider-man/" target="_blank">Not really.</a> I see these folks that I’m getting ready to play this game with as very similar to the 13 years of professional baseball that I played and the teammates that I played with.

Perhaps ironically, Rocker told CBS that he thinks he will “survive” Survivor because he has “the ability to read people and morph my personality in a way that lets me mesh with <a href="http://www.cbs.com/shows/survivor/cast/214924/" target="_blank">people from all walks of life</a>.”</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/0f8iUup3Cyw" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>Rocker and McGee will go head to head against 8 other pairs, including <em>Amazing Race</em> alums, and twin sisters, <strong>Nadiya</strong> and <strong>Natalie Anderson</strong>, boyfriends <strong>Reed Kelley</strong> and <strong>Josh Canfield</strong>, who both perform on Broadway and a father-son pair of firefighters, <strong>Keith</strong> and <strong>Wes Nale</strong>.</p> <h1> Full List of Contestants:</h1> <p>Father-Daughter Pair: <strong>Dale Wentworth </strong>(55) and <strong>Kelley Wentworth</strong> (28)<br /> Brothers: <strong>Drew Christy</strong> (25) and <strong>Alec Christy</strong> (22)<br /> Married Couple: <strong>Val Collins</strong> (35) and <strong>Jeremy Collins</strong> (36)<br /> Couple: John Rocker (39) and Julie McGee (34)<br /> College Sweethearts: <strong>Jaclyn Schultz</strong> (25) and <strong>Jon Misch </strong>(26)<br /> “Christian Gay” Couple: <strong>Josh Canfield</strong> (32) and <strong>Reed Kelly</strong> (31)<br /> Mother-daughter pair: <strong>Baylor Wilson</strong> (20) and <strong>Missy Payne</strong> (47)<br /> Twins: Nadiya Anderson (28) and Natalie Anderson (28)<br /> Father-Son Pair: Wes Nale (23) and Keith Nale (53)</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Lnl3nTQr5LE" width="300"></iframe></p> <p><em>Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Blood vs. Water </em>will premiere Wednesday, Sept. 24, at 8 p.m. on CBS.</p>Wed, 27 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/cg45otwwz5wk8/iedsbukin00s4/4clfjhcom5v5/28jpfklfo/r938kfcqrub/enaf25992zkgcss/v3hvtdh1t80o4g/165r45emggis8g8s4w/1ewor5alj84gk4o/g4pcgorv4xkwws8<![CDATA[Michelle Duggar Takes Anti-LGBT Stance In Robocall]]>http://uinterview.com/news/michelle-duggar-takes-anti-lgbt-stance-in-robocall-12657<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/michelle-duggar-takes-anti-lgbt-stance-in-robocall-12657'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/8e56e7d2d8131eb0618b7f44c7cf03e2-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Michelle Duggar</strong>, the matriarch on the TLC reality series<em> 19 Kids and Counting</em>, can be heard making an anti-LGBT argument in a recorded robocall.</p> <h1> Michelle Duggar's Anti-LGBT Robocall</h1> <p>In the robocall, Duggar speaks out against an antidiscrimination ordinance that endeavors to protect the rights of transgender men and women in her hometown of Fayetteville, Ark.

Belk, who recounted his ordeal in a Facebook post on Saturday, claims that he was detained for 6 hours without being informed of the charges against him and was not read his rights, nor was he awarded a phone call when requested.</p> <h1> Police Arrest Black TV Producer For Suspicion Of Robbery</h1> <p>According to the Beverly Hills Police Department, Belk was arrested because he fit the description of a man suspected to have been involved in a nearby robbery committed by the “Purse Packing Bandit.” Belk was handcuffed and made to sit on the curb until he was positively identified by an eye witness and taken into the police station, where he alleges he was fingerprinted and booked without being informed of the reason for his arrest.</p> <p>“Within an evening, I was wrongly arrested, locked up, denied a phone call, denied explanation of charges against me, denied ever being read my rights, denied being able to speak to my lawyer for a lengthy time, and denied being told that my car had been impounded…All because I was mis-identified as the wrong ‘<a href="https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10152352402863207&substory_index=0&id=543298206" target="_blank">tall, bald head, black male</a>,’” Belk wrote.</p> <p>Belk, a graduate of USC who has worked as a consultant with the NAACP, said that a friend who witnessed his arrest called a contact at the NAACP and was able to get him an attorney. Eventually, Belk was released when video surveillance video proved he was innocent. While Belk said he understands why the Beverly Hills Police Department stopped him, what he cannot understand is why it took them so long to check the bank’s video surveillance.</p> <p>“Why, at 11:59 p.m. (approximately 6 hours later), was the video footage reviewed only after my request to the Lead Detective for the Beverly Hills Police Department and an FBI Agent to do so, and, after being directly accused by another FBI Special Agent of “…going in and out of the bank several times complaining about the ATM Machine to cause a distraction…” thereby aiding in the armed robbery attempt of a bank that I never heard of, or ever been to; and within 10 minutes…10 MINUTES, my lawyer was told that I was being release[d] because it was clear that it was not me,” Belk wrote.</p> <p>In his statement, Belk claims the BHPD “locked me up and took away my civil rights.”</p> <p><script type="text/javascript" charset="UTF-8" src="http://www.nbclosangeles.com/portableplayer/?cmsID=272840251&videoID=K_0tiX5diIZ9&origin=nbclosangeles.com&sec=news&subsec=local&width=600&height=360"></script></p> <p>“If I did not have a friend there that saw me…I am convinced that I would still be locked up, without a doubt,” Belk told NBC, thanking his friends and attorney, <strong>Jaaye Person-Lynn</strong>.</p> <h1> Beverly Hills PD Releases Statement</h1> <p>After Welk’s Facebook statement went viral, the Beverly Hills Police Department were forced to release a statement recounting the arrest. They write that Belk was “positively identified…in a field show-up” while waiting on the curb outside, prompting his official arrest:</p> <p>“Within minutes of the robbery call being broadcast, police detained a subject less than a block away from the robbery who closely matched the clothing and physical characteristics of the male suspect. After an eye witness positively identified the subject in a field show-up, police arrested Charles Belk for suspicion of robbery. A follow-up investigation by detectives ultimately determined that Mr. Belk was not involved in the robbery and he was released from custody <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/08/26/charles-belk-beverly-hills-police_n_5716897.html" target="_blank">without charges</a>.”</p> <p>Belk, however, has answered these claims, stating that the witness identification was biased, as Belk was sitting handcuffed when the alleged witness positively identified him.</p> <p>“The Beverly Hills Police Department said that I was positively identified by an eye witness. Here’s the thing, the witness apparently identified me during a field drive by, presumably, while I was sitting on the curb, handcuffed, blocked by a motorcycle, <a href="https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10152358726683207&id=543298206&refid=17" target="_blank">with my head down</a>,” Belk wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday.</p> <p>The Beverly Hills Police Department also apologized for the mix up, but maintained that their officers did everything correctly, and the department stands by their handling of the situation.</p> <p>“The Beverly Hills Police Department deeply regrets the inconvenience to Mr. Belk and has reached out to him to express those regrets and further explain the circumstances. However, based on witness accounts, and his location close to the bank, officers properly detained and arrested him based on the totality of the circumstances known at the time of the field investigation,” reads the statement.</p> <p>Welk, however, continues to fight against the police department. “Time has come for a change in the way OUR law enforcement officers <a href="https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10152352402863207&substory_index=0&id=543298206" target="_blank">‘serve and protect’ us</a>,” Belk wrote.</p> <p> </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"> <p>I accepted the task of trying to lend a voice to the many Black males w/o one <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/fitthedescription?src=hash">#fitthedescription</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/timeforachange?src=hash">#timeforachange</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/nbc?src=hash">#nbc</a> <a href="http://t.co/IMTGbEXLm3">pic.twitter.com/IMTGbEXLm3</a></p> — Charles Belk (@charlesbelk) <a href="https://twitter.com/charlesbelk/statuses/504459417186623488">August 27, 2014</a></blockquote> <br /> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p> </p>Wed, 27 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/cg45otwwz5wk8/iedsbukin00s4/4clfjhcom5v5/28jpfklfo/r938kfcqrub/enaf25992zkgcss/v3hvtdh1t80o4g/165r45emggis8g8s4w/1ewor5alj84gk4o/c0bu4yc1xzj<![CDATA[50 Cent And Floyd Mayweather Feud Over ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Continues]]>http://uinterview.com/news/50-cent-and-floyd-mayweather-feud-over-als-ice-bucket-challenge-continues-12654<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/50-cent-and-floyd-mayweather-feud-over-als-ice-bucket-challenge-continues-12654'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/b80f36488da44f92f60840c64d20979b-150x150.png' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>50 Cent</strong> and <strong>Floyd Mayweather</strong>, who were once good friends, have been in an ongoing feud that’s now centering around the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.</p> <h1> 50 Cent Floyd Mayweather Feud</h1> <p>After getting nominated, 50 Cent decided to call out his ex-pal Mayweather.

Played basketball, joked a lot, had a small sense of humor. Got along with most … Wasn't the best athlete, but liked to play.”</p> <p>McCain, whose Twitter bio reads, “It’s Islam over everything,” often posted about Islam on Twitter and Facebook amidst posts about hip-hop and basketball.</p> <p>“Allah keeps me going day and night.

Another read, “I<a href="https://twitter.com/iamthetooth" target="_blank"> reverted to Islam 10 years ago</a> and I must say In sha Allah I will never look back the best thing that ever happen to me.”</p> <p>It is believed that McCain’s posts caught the attention of ISIS fighters, who reached out to him, urging him to join their fight.

Detective Holbrook (<strong>Sean Faris</strong>) stands behind the glass, and, curiously, when asked whether they should be waiting for Detective Tanner, Holbrook does not respond. (Could Holbrook be working with Ali?) After realizing that Ali was going to the cops, Spencer, Emily, Hanna and Aria head over to Mona’s house to ask for her help. Mona (<strong>Janel Parrish</strong>) was right when she told Aria that Ali would get bored with her and move on to target them, and they need her help. They tell Mona that Ali is talking to the police, and Mona says she’ll do what she can. After the girls leave, Mona calls Lucas (<strong>Brendan Robinson</strong>), telling him they’re at “Code A.”</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/7_LxqyMRvGM" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>When Mona meets Lucas for their anti-Ali army meeting, she is surprised to find that he’s the only one who showed up. The rest of Mona’s army has been swayed by Ali’s seductive ways, and now it’s just them. Thus, a tentative alliance between Mona and the girls is born. In the bathroom at Rosewood High, the five girls meet up and establish that Ali is A, and Mona wants to help them because she just got early acceptance letters from colleges and she’s going to need friends to survive senior year.</p> <p>Ali’s a sociopath, says Mona, and she curated the girls to torture them. Spencer is smart, Emily is loyal, Hanna is the admirer and Aria is compassionate. But now that they’ve abandoned her, Ali is pissed, and she’s gone to the police to end the ‘A’ game. Mona gives them strict instructions not to tell their “bed buddies” about their plans and the group scatters when the twins Ali poached from Mona’s army walk in together.</p> <p>Paige (<strong>Lindsey Shaw</strong>) and Emily kiss and make up and start decorating Emily’s house for Christmas – a Fields tradition – after school. Hanna and Caleb (<strong>Tyler Blackburn</strong>) join them while Aria goes to Ezra’s to help him bake pumpkin pie. Her mother invited Ezra over for Thanksgiving. It’s a test, she says, to see if he’s worth a second chance. And Spencer (<strong>Troian Bellisario</strong>) gets a visit from new police officer Toby (<strong>Keegan Allen</strong>), dressed in his uniform. She gives him his graduation present: a pocket watch with an inscription that reads, “You are my once upon a time… – S.” The two make plans to go to his Police Academy graduation later that night.</p> <h1> Mona And Spencer Break Into Radley</h1> <p>Meanwhile, Lucas and Mona hack into the Rosewood PD and download a copy of Ali’s interview, finding that the police are clearly less interested in Ali as a suspect than Spencer. They theorize that Spencer killed Bethany Young to keep Ali from telling anybody that she was taking pills, and Ali doesn’t exactly contradict that line of thinking. After hearing the tape, Spencer is, naturally, freaked, and at first she tells the girls that they shouldn’t go forward. They should just wait, and her mother will help her when the time comes. Then, Caleb, who knew Hanna was keeping something from him, shows up with some bad news: the police are no longer interested in Ali as a suspect in Bethany Young’s murder, they are completely focused on Spencer. But, the police theory doesn’t make sense: why would Spencer kill Bethany Young to get on Ali’s good side? The group now has a new plan: break into Radley and steal Bethany Young’s records to find the connection between Ali and Bethany.</p> <p>Mona and Spencer do the breaking and entering, dressing up as nurses and sneaking into the file room while Aria distracts the main nurse by dropping paint in her art class and Hanna and Caleb keep tabs from outside. Things go smoothly until Detective Holbrook shows up and begins asking questions. Specifically, he corners Aria in the art room and asks her if she started volunteering there after they identified Bethany Young’s body. Hiding from the Detective in Hanna’s car, Caleb finds a list of colleges that appear to be way out of Hanna’s league, and Hanna reveals that she’s secretly a genius and got a crazy good score on her SATs.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/DoQxfPwgh2g" width="300"></iframe></p> <h1> Ali Wanted Bethany Young Dead</h1> <p>Mona and Spencer manage to get away without Holbrook seeing them, and they take tape recordings of Bethany Young’s therapy sessions with them. Going through the tapes, they find a connection: Mrs. DiLaurentis had an affair with Bethany’s father, which was supposedly why she was visiting Bethany at Radley. In the recordings, Bethany wonders if she can trust Ali, or if the girl is just like her mother.</p> <p>Emily is on Ali duty and invited her over to ‘talk’ as a distraction. Ali quickly figures out that Emily is lying to her, but she doesn’t answer when Emily asks her if she’s ‘A.’ She walks out of Emily’s house just as Paige is arriving, but doesn’t see her. When Paige sees Ali get in a car with the twins on her ‘A’ team, she ditches her plans to see Emily and follows them.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/44w36VXRZGc" width="300"></iframe></p> <h1> Spencer Is Arrested, Mona Dies</h1> <p>Spencer called Toby after leaving Radley and heard him get into a car crash over the phone. Toby escaped with a broken leg, and he’s going to be out of commission for a little while, but, he is expected to make a full recovery, and is checked out of the hospital on Thanksgiving Day, just in time to watch Spencer get arrested at The Brew.</p> <p>As the cops carry Spencer away in handcuffs, Mona is still studying the tapes she stole from Radley. She calls Aria, who’s at home with Ezra, with some big news: Ali wanted Bethany dead because she knew about her mother’s affair and was jealous. She knows that Ali is ‘A’ and she can prove it. Just as she gets off the phone, a figure with blonde hair, wearing a hoodie, sneaks up behind her.</p> <p>Aria, Ezra, Hanna and Emily rush over to Mona’s house to find out what she’s discovered, but they’re too late. The house is completely trashed, and there’s blood everywhere. When Detective Holbrook addresses the press, he tells them that they have not found a body, but there is so much blood in the house that they declare Mona’s death a homicide. The girls cry in the street, and Ali watches, completely emotionless.</p> <p>The episode ends with A replacing baby Jesus with a Mona doll in the nativity scene outside Emily’s house. A takes the Jesus doll and gently places it in the trunk of a car next to Mona’s very dead body.</p> <p>Mona fans, fear not, Janel Parrish has promised that she will return to Rosewood in flashbacks.</p> <p> </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"> <p>That's it for the live chat!

Among the big names to bid Handler goodbye, was<strong> Ellen DeGeneres</strong>, who confronted the nude host in the shower.</p> <h1> Chelsea Handler's Last 'Chelsea Lately' Show</h1> <p>On Tuesday night, Handler signed off late-night and said goodbye to E! after seven years with the help of her A-list pals, which included best friend <strong>Jennifer Aniston</strong> and her husband <strong>Justin Theroux, Courteney Cox, Sandra Bullock, Gwen Stefani, Melissa McCarthy, 50 Cent, Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens</strong>, <strong>Gerard Butler</strong> and more.</p> <p>At the conclusion of the special, Handler recruited her pals to sing a song with lyrics set to "We Are the World." Stefani kicked off the song and solos were later sung by <strong>Fergie, Tim Gunn, Avril Lavingne, Josh Gad</strong>, Butler, <strong>Alannis Morissette, Leanne Rimes</strong> and <strong>Dave Grohl</strong>.

Since then, the former athlete has allegedly become obsessed with the product, using it to give the appearance that he has a flat stomach, according to <em>OK Magazine.</em></p> <p>Jenner’s estranged wife <strong>Kris Jenner</strong>, upon finding out about<a href="http://www.inquisitr.com/1431366/bruce-jenner-loves-wearing-spanx-sex-change-rumors-continue/" target="_blank"> Bruce’s undergarment preference</a>, told their daughters Kendall and Kylie, reported the Inquisitr. Both <strong>Kendall</strong> and <strong>Kylie</strong> apparently found humor in their father’s Spanx-wearing, while Bruce was supposedly angered and embarrassed about them knowing.</p> <p>Although Spanx is primarily known for being a product for females, the brand does also produce a line for men. It’s not known, however, whether the Jenner-Kardashian patriarch is wearing the men’s or women’s products.</p> <p><a href="http://uinterview.com/news/bruce-jenner-sex-change-rumors-denied-by-kris-jenner-10110" target="_blank">Speculation about Jenner’s gender identity</a> began to increase earlier this year when it came to light that he had undergone surgery to have his Adam’s apple flattened – a procedure common for one who is transitioning to physically become a woman. Explaining his reason for getting the surgery, Jenner told TMZ, “I just don’t like my trachea.”</p> <p>Jenner has also undergone a nose job, which he claimed was to eliminate scar tissue form a surgery he had to remove skin cancer. Adding to the speculation is Jenner’s hair, which he has been growing out over the last several months.</p>Tue, 26 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/cg45otwwz5wk8/iedsbukin00s4/4clfjhcom5v5/28jpfklfo/r938kfcqrub/enaf25992zkgcss/v3hvtdh1t80o4g/165r45emggis8g8s4w/1ewor5alj84gk4o/2gtjnea3uaeck<![CDATA[Sofia Vergara Appears In Emmys Bit Standing On A Pedestal, Emmys Blasted As Sexist]]>http://uinterview.com/news/sofia-vergara-appears-in-emmys-bit-standing-on-a-pedestal-emmys-blasted-as-sexist-12641<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/sofia-vergara-appears-in-emmys-bit-standing-on-a-pedestal-emmys-blasted-as-sexist-12641'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/907359a7479c4979e640550a18fbe6bc-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Sofia Vergara</strong> turned heads and caused a bit of controversy when she participated in a bit on the Emmys that had her spinning on a pedestal, literally being used as an onstage prop.</p> <h1> Sofia Vergara Spins On Pedestal In Emmys Bit</h1> <p>Vergara, a four-time Emmy nominee and star on <em>Modern Family</em>, appeared on the Emmy stage to introduce the President of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, <strong>Bruce Rosenblum</strong>. In every awards show, addresses by the president of the group handing out the awards are always considered boring and unnecessary, and, as such, are often fodder for jokes. This year at the Emmys, the creative minds behind the show decided they would make Rosenblum’s entire speech a joke by having <a href="http://jezebel.com/sofia-vergara-got-to-participate-in-the-sexist-portion-1626763632" target="_blank">Vergara stand silently beside him on a rotating pedestal</a>.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/OrR3XMWWm4A?rel=0" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>Vergara spun around, alternating between looking clumsy and at posing nicely, as Rosenblum spoke about the “diversity” within television, something many viewers took offense to.</p> <p>“Our academy is more diverse than ever before, both in front of, and behind the camera, resulting in a diversity of story telling,” Rosenblum said as Vergara showed off her famous figure, the audience chuckling in the background.</p> <p>“Our academy never loses sight that no matter what platform, television has and will always be about great storytelling…. The most important thing is to never forget that our success is based on always giving the viewer something compelling to watch,” Rosenblum concluded, adequately delivering the punch line to a joke that appeared to place Vergara’s backside above her ability as an actress.</p> <h1> Viewers Slam Bit As Sexist</h1> <p>Needless to say, the Twitter backlash was loud and immediate, with many calling the bit just more proof of the sexism present in Hollywood – Jezebel ran the story with the headline, “Sofia Vergara Got to Participate in the <a href="http://jezebel.com/sofia-vergara-got-to-participate-in-the-sexist-portion-1626763632" target="_blank">Sexist Portion of the Emmys</a>.”</p> <p> </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"> <p>Why doesn't Hollywood write compelling characters for women?

I think it’s ridiculous that somebody started this – I know who she was – who has no sense of humor [and should] <a href="http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/08/26/sofia-vergara-sexist-emmy-pedestal/" target="_blank">lighten up a bit</a>.”</p> <p>The identity of this “somebody” Vergara appears to be calling out as the source of the criticism is unclear, but Vergara’s confidence in the bit is certainly not up for debate. This is not surprising, as Vergara has always appeared willing to make fun of her looks in comedy – her character in <em>Modern Family</em> is just one example.</p> <h1> Stephen Colbert Emmy Misstep</h1> <p>Adding insult to injury, the moment came just after <strong>Stephen Colbert</strong>, of <em>The Colbert Report</em>, made an ill-advised comment about his show’s lack of female writers as he accepted the Emmy for Outstanding Variety Series.</p> <p>“Our writers won last week…I’m so proud of those guys.
