Former reality TV star Josh Duggar faces child porn chargesFAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Former reality TV star Josh Duggar faces charges of downloading and possessing child pornography under a federal indictment unsealed Friday. Federal prosecutors announced the indictment a day after Duggar was arrested by U.S. Marshals in northwest Arkansas.

His attorneys said they planned to defend his case “aggressively and thoroughly.” “In this country, no one can stop prosecutors from charging a crime,” the attorneys said in a statement. “But when you’re accused, you can fight back in the courtroom — and that is exactly what Josh   ...

Caitlyn Jenner’s likelihood to snag California governorship very slim reports new poll

ABC/Lou RoccoWith enough signatures to trigger an election to recall California's Governor Gavin Newsom, several gubernatorial hopefuls are throwing their names into the ring.  Among them is Caitlyn Jenner.  However, a new poll finds her chances of defeating the Democratic governor are very weak. According to British bookmaker, Ladbrokes, the Keeping up with the Kardashians alum is heading into the race with relatively low odds. The sports betting site places Jenner's chances at +2500, or 25/1, meaning her probability of winning the election currently rests at 3.8 percent. Despite the low number, it still puts her among the most prominent political bids established by openly transgender individuals.  The last time there was a recall election in California was in 2003 when then-Governor Gray Davis -- a Democrat -- lost his seat to Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Republican.  However,   ...

Elon Musk hosting ‘SNL’? Some cast members aren’t laughing

Pascal Le Segretain/Getty ImagesNBC's announcement over the weekend that Tesla CEO Elon Musk would be hosting the May 8 episode of Saturday Night Live, along with musical guest Miley Cyrus, left fans scratching their heads and show's cast equally unamused. Musk confirmed his upcoming hosting gig with the taunting tweet, “Let’s find out just how live Saturday Night Live really is.” SNL funnyman Bowen Yang seemed to have hoped that Musk’s social-media memo was nothing more than a bad joke. “What the f*** does this even mean,” Yang, 30, questioned in an Instagram Story post attached to the tech giant's tweet, according to The New York Post. Meanwhile, Yang's fellow cast member Aidy Bryant reposted a tweet from Bernie Sanders as a thinly disguised jab at Musk that read, “The 50 wealthiest people in America today   ... Read More

ABC/AMPASOne of the highlights of Sunday night's Oscars telecast was the grateful, and very funny, acceptance speech given by Best Supporting Actress winner Yuh-Jung Youn.  Not only did the 73-year-old Minari star thank her sons "for making mom work," but she also threw some admiring glances at presenter and Minari co-producer Brad Pitt.  Backstage, she was asked a few questions about Brad -- including one asking how the heartthrob smelled, to which Yuh-Jung quipped, "I'm not a dog, I didn't smell him!"  She was also asked if she'd ever want to co-star in a romantic movie with the actor she'd been watching since "he was very young." Youn smiled at the notion, but replied, "No, that will never happen with my English, and age, you know," she said,   ... Read More

Marvel Studios releases new poster of Anthony Mackie as Captain America

Marvel Studios(SPOILERS) Marvel movie fans know hanging around after a movie or show's end credits usually rewards them with hints of things to come in the MCU, and the finale of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier was no different. Not only did they see the full "heel turn" of Emily VanCamp's Sharon Carter, but the show's title changed to read Captain America and The Winter Soldier. As if to reinforce that change, Marvel Studios has released an official poster of Mackie in his brand-new, red-white-and blue super-suit. The series finale dealt with Sam Wilson relinquishing his role as The Falcon and finally embracing the responsibility of the star-spangled shield Chris Evans' Steve Rogers gave him at the end of Avengers: Endgame. The Disney+ show followed Wilson's being conflicted about assuming the Captain   ... Read More

‘The Simpsons’ producer says LGBT podcast led to gay actor replacing Hank Azaria as gay character

FoxWhile much has been made about Hank Azaria stepping down from playing Indian American character Apu on The Simpsons, the versatile actor will no longer voice another character from the animated show, and a gay actor has taken his place.  Starting with an episode that aired last last month, actor Tony Rodriguez now voices Julio, a gay friend of Homer's and a fellow resident of Springfield. According to a tweet from Simpsons producer Matt Selman, a video supercut compiled by Drew Mackie, plus Glen Lakin's podcast Gayest Episode Ever, "definitely had a hand" in the change. Much as the documentary The Problem with Apu shed light on the negative impact Azaria's characterization of the character has had on Indian Americans, the supercut exhaustively compiled every gay joke made in the 31-year history of the Emmy-winning series -- and like   ...
