Melissa Rivers’ tell-all style book about mama Joan doesn’t hold back11 hours ago
Everything to chuckle with and weep about is in the soon-due volume Joan Rivers Confidential. Subtitle: The unseen scrapbooks, gag cards, personal files, and photos of a very funny woman who kept everything.
Co-authors are daughter Melissa Rivers and Joans PR buddy Scott Currie. They report: Childhood insecurities led to 564 Mothers hated me jokes.
Like: I was born ugly. After the doctor slapped me, then nurses took a shot … My first birthday present was luggage … Bath playthings? They gave me a toaster and a radio … My childhood memory was them loosening the wheels on my stroller … When I wet the bed, my mother bought me an electric blanket … Theyd take me to the subway and hurl candy bars on the tracks.
Joan Molinsky Rosenberg threw out nothing. Kept is a 1938 Brooklyn Ethical Culture School teacher report stating her keen desire to succeed. She enjoys recognition. Kept is a nursery school play that formed her thinking that fat or thin, rich or poor, a theatrical career stimulates you a fairy princess.
Age 8, she stole a Your Career in Show Business library book. She memorized it and thus began her tunnel vision.
In the intro of the book, which is set to be released in October, Melissa swimming in boxes and boxes of Joans stuff mulls the task of examining 55 boxes plus more in un-air-conditioned storage plus a separate Bubble Wrapped sealed cache labeled Tonight Show 1960 s to 1986.
Says PR guy Scott: After starting to work on this last August, I went down a whole dress size.

Am I The Only One Who Thinks Shanley Obviously Wants Adam’s D?11 hours ago
Tori : Poor Mike and Felicia. Bye Felicia.
Tori spending like, six weeks in a house with a girl and not even knowing her name is me at every party.
Cams telling Mikala to hold on a little bit longer over the track of someone laughing maniacally in the background. Devin, perhaps?
Cam: If we are capable of make it here we are capable of make it anywhere.
Uh, this aint New York. If you can make it here in this game you can make it running a few light errands in some large-ish English-speaking cities, but that’s about it.
Shandys talking to Cam like Would you feel terrible if you dragged her through this and you both went home with nothing? Like bitch, who wouldnt? The point of this entire game is not to go home with nothing. Are you new?
Adam and Shanley( I just remembered her name fr but I candidly like her better as Shandy) go to talk. Shes like Im so proud of myself and how Ive performed and you need to get your head in video games. OK, High School Musical. This bitch is really going back from the beginning to be like Who detected the emoji week 1? Who give you a pencil that one time in fourth grade math class?
Shanley thinks that because she acknowledges on camera that she has a terrible stance that absolves her of having a terrible position. Shes like every girl who says shes viciously honest as a carte blanche to act like an asshole not how it runs, boo boo.
Karamo: To have any success as a perfect match, you and your partner have to be on the same page.
Ya Karamo WE HAVE BEEN FUCKING AWARE.
So for todays mission theyre planning a beach party. TF is this shit, my sorority recruitment? They already filmed a skit , now they’re scheming a party, what’s next? Stimulating some Oreo truffles?
OK so this is basically the newlyweds game, but for party planning. That stimulates it SLIGHTLY more complicated but not really.
Cam : Idk this is nerve-wracking, weve never thrown a party before.
Yeah Im worried about how Im gonna pay rent this month, but tell me again how nervous you are planning a fucking party when all you have to do is choose between two options.
The first station is to choose between liquor or brew. For a party? Who tf would choose brew? That would be immediate grounds for dismissal tbh.
Cam chose brew for a party and Mikala chose cocktails.
Everyone: IDK where this liquor store is!
Shannon: * Reads signs in English* got it!
Tori carries that bucket of alcohol like a bawss. I legit love Tori. Tori, consider this your personal invitation to hang out with me in Astoriaassuming youre not too good for Astoria anymore.
The entertainment is band or DJ? Da fuq? We planning a party or a fucking bridal in 1999? Im sorry but like MTV, wtf is this rn.
CAM PICKED BEER AND BAND. Remind me to never attend a party Cams throwing.
Devin is like If we have a physical competition Rashida and I are gonna lose. If thats the lawsuit I fail to see how yall thought signing up for an MTV challenge was a good idea.
What is with these lame-ass dudes supposing people want beer and bands at a party? No wonder these guys had to go on a dating display to find a girlfriend. It all constructs sense now.
All right, youve persuaded me. Im putting in my application for. Assure you on season 6! I’ll be the least attractive one who’s dead inside. It’s a mystery why I’m single, really.
And the wins are Adam and Shanley. Its like each week MTV runs hmmm who could really use a W? and then constructs up a challenge on the spot thats specifically tailored to that pair.
Damn how did Tori and Morgan end up in nearly last place? Like, I know how because Ive been watching it, but damn. The tides have turned.
Its a little pathetic to ensure Rashida apologize to Devin for being an asshole when Devin was clearly the one being a douche like I feel like Devin could murder person and be like Im so sorry for killing that person and Rashida would be like sorry for killing such person or persons !! OMG assure were like the same !!!
Mikala getting side-tracked at the last stage of this mission because she saw a dog is me af.
Holy shit, Tori and Morgan lose. Ugh this is extremely upsetting. They lost 50% of our bank and I bet Morgan is regretting not stealing two weeks ago like never before.
I should be drinking water, but I guess Im gonna drink some liquor Morgan and also me
Adam: * Wins one challenge* Shanley and I are easily the best challengers in the house.
Cam and Mikala are talking and Mikala is like the thinks always there that Ill steal like maybe not the best thing to say right to your partner when the whole game is based off not stealing.
BACK AT THE HOUSE
Everyones joking about the size of Adams dick and hes like LOL yeah my dick is altogether the size of a water bottle and Shanley is like LIAR!
Adam : How is my penis starting all this drama when Im not even putting it into anyone? Shanley : I just heard you talk yourself up and I told you to prove it and you wouldnt.
So like, Shanley is LITERALLY mad that Adam didn’t show her his penis. The solution to all your problems is so simple: SHE WANTS THE D! Adam, how can you be so blind!
Not sure how much liquor Shanley has drank but shes like Send me tf home. I dont even fucking care.
Morgan: I am simply kinda dead inside at this moment.
Same tho. Therefore welcomed team dead inside! I am the captain but you can easily join our ranks.
Tori is drunkenly rubbing Morgans back and talking about her feelings. Like Im somewhat uncomfortable rn.
Morgan: Will you watch me sleep for a while?
Tori : Yeah Me :
Devin is trying to tell Morgan to vote him in to the choice because hell steal. Hes like Ive never lied before, why would I lie now? I’m sorry, when has Devin lied?
Meanwhile, Mikala is like put me in, coach-and-four to Tori.
MORGAN CAME THROUGH WITH THE TUX. Brb, gotta change my underwear. JK y’all know I only have eyes for Derrick( RIP ).
Im gonna be so sad if Morgan and Tori go home. Why couldnt the coming week be the blind trust? Can this be like a situation, where they decide to send all final four squads to Fashion Week?
And the couple going into the choice is Cam and Mikala.
Devins like damn I had a speech and everything.
Rashida: Oh so you simply wanna steal my money.
Devin : I mean that would be classic Devin but I would never do that. Rashida/ Me :
See like if it were me Id simply be like Im gonna reached steal, if you make share Ill split the money with you. Shit, I gotta stop revealing all my secrets in these recaps or they’ll never pick me for the show.
Cam : I feel like Ive been a piece of shit for a couple weeks but from here on out Im gonna put you as number one.
Mikala: Youre still my best friend and Ill do this for as long as you wanna do it.
Blah blah blah oh this is lame now. Wheres the suspense? They’re obviously both gonna share.
And the choices are.
YA’ ANOTHER BLIND CHOICE !!! Ahhh WHO CALLED IT! WHO THE FUCK CALLED IT!
Dont mind me, I’m only over here like 😛 TAGEND
Everyone else is like:
Mikala is like Fuck I guess were really still in this then.
Can’t wait for the final, it’s gonna be
lit reasonably challenging.

Cape Watch: The Internet Has Picked a Robin for the New Batman Movie11 hours ago
If nothing else, 2016 will be remembered as a year of grand revelations for superhero movies. As much as they were critically savaged, Batman v Superman: Dawning of Justice and Suicide Squad have proven that there really is a DC cinematic world to talk about, and even if X-Men: Apocalypse disappointed, Deadpool constructed people believe in Fox’s X-Men franchise again. With Doctor Strange lying ahead this year, it’s safe to say that the genre is in pretty good shape despite everyone’s frets … but let’s look to the future to see if we need to maintain worrying, shall we?
SUPER IDEA: Holy Unexpected Audition Tapes, Batman!
It’s unknown whether or not Ben Affleck’s Batman movie will feature a Robin, but if it does, the Internet knows who should play the part. Let’s go to the tape.
Yes, that’s Big Hero 6 ‘ s Ryan Potter, and he isn’t just trying to convince people that he has the chops to play Robin, he even knows which Robin he wants to play: Tim Drake, the third character to take on the identity in DC’s mainline continuity. He should really check out the latest issue of Detective Comics before he gets too invested in that notion, though.
Why this is super : In less than a minute, Potter manages to stimulate the idea of bringing Robin to the big screen. Hey Warner Bros ., maybe you should give him a little more of an audition before too long, especially .
SUPER IDEA: Ben Affleck in Tactical Wear
Speaking of Bats, Justice League director Zack Snyder took to Twitter yesterday to post this 😛 TAGEND
— ZackSnyder (@ ZackSnyder) September 14, 2016
Yes, thats Ben Afflecks Batman looking even more tricked out than usual.( Also, Bruce, whats the big switch youre throwing there, buddy ?)
Why this is super : Look, were still in the Cautiously Optimistic camp when it comes to Justice League , but if this image shows that even if this movie isnt great, at least everyone in it might appear cool.
SUPER IDEA: Diversity in Doctor Strange
Concerned about the fact that the Doctor Strange movie took a prominent Asian role and gave it to a white person? Director Scott Derrickson was, too, as it turns out.” Diversity in movies is absolutely the responsibility of producers and directors ,” Derrickson told the Los Angeles Daily News .” In this movie, we have about as diverse a cast as I think you can get, and that was a very conscious decision .” Another conscious decision was to respond to the whitewashing of the Ancient One–traditionally an Asian male, played in the movie by Tilda Swinton–by bring back an additional Asian male character.” I was going to leave Wong out of the movie at first; he was an Asian sidekick manservant, what was I supposed to do with that ?” Derrickson told.” But where the decision was made to cast Tilda, we brought Wong back because, unlike the Ancient One, he could be completely subverted as a character and reworked into something that didnt shall be divided into any of the stereotypes of the comics .”
Why this is super : Wong, who was originally Doctor Strange’s Man Friday in the comic books( but now has a little more agency and attitude, thankfully ), is enough of a blank slate to make this kind of makeover possible, and it’s good to see that Derrickson is thinking about the representation in the movie. We’ll see if he made it work when the movie hits theaters in November.
SUPER IDEA: Casting Wolverine ‘ s Big Bad After the post-credits sequence on X-Men: Apocalypse , fans were pretty sure they knew who was going to be the big bad of next year’s Wolverine movie. Turns out, they’re right: Apocalypse director and X- franchise executive producer Bryan Singer confirmed that Mister Sinister will indeed be a major presence in the sequel to The Wolverine on the commentary of the home release of Apocalypse , saying that the sequence is indeed a teaser for the as-yet-untitled third Wolverine movie( and also disclosing that the movie almost had a post-credit sequence tying in to Deadpool 2 , but the idea was scrapped during developing ).
Why this is super : Interestingly enough, there aren’t too many Wolverine/ Sinister stories in comic book canon–Sinister has a predilection for messing with Cyclops in the comics–which builds the idea that he’d show up in a Wolverine movie all the more curious. Sure, he likes to mess around with genetic experiments, which ties him to the Weapon X concept in some way, but what will bring the two in conflict situations? Get your supposition engines started.
SUPER IDEA: The Spider-Dance
Wondering what to expect from Spider-Man: Homecoming ? Director Jon Watts shared a video from the situated, depicting the real-time motion capture in action and some of the new Spider-Man’s moves.
Here’s hoping there’s actually a scene in the finished movie where Peter realizes he has to dance his way out of trouble.
Why this is super : OK, sure; this is a silly little video, but it’s also a fun video, and let’s be honest: previous Spider-Man movies have tended to be a little short on fun. This bodes well for Homecoming ‘ s sense of humor, even if we’re unlikely to see a dancing Spidey in the final movie.( But, really: we’re all hoping that we will, right ?)
