I can not look away from the glorious train wreck that is Omarosa talking trash about Trump on ‘Celebrity Big Brother.’ MORE PLEASE.

Omarosa Manigault Newman is terrible. Omarosa Manigault Newman deserves every bad thing that has happened to her. And yet, I hope Omarosa Manigault Newman is never voted out of the Celebrity Big Brother house. 

After saying that she was “haunted” by Trump’s tweets, and fake crying to Ross the Intern that we should all be worried about the Trump administration because “it’s not going to be OK,” and saying that she would not vote for him again, and also comparing Trump to Bill Cosby, the White House had to address the Omarosa issue in a White House Press Briefing because THIS IS THE WORLD WE LIVE IN NOW, WHERE THE WHITE HOUSE HAS TO MAKE STATEMENTS ABOUT WHATEVER BULLSHIT HAPPENED ON A REALITY SHOW THE NIGHT BEFORE.

And while any other White House — by which I mean a SANE ONE — would say something adult along the lines of, “It’s a reality show, and reality shows are notorious for being manipulatively edited,” OR SOMETHING, instead, instead! this White House made an Apprentice reference because OF COURSE IT FUCKING DID.

And what I’m saying is Chuck Todd ain’t wrong, y’all:

I’m torn on this story: On the one hand, we should expose these monsters for what they are, but on the other hand, maybe don’t give Nazis airtime?

The early details on this Disney streaming platform are that it will not have any R-rated content (that will go on Hulu) and that they are not moving their Marvel properties over to it (just yet), so Netflix retains its superhero properties. It’s going to launch in the fall of 2019.

Viacom is also creating a streaming service of its own, because sure. Why not.

The Scandal/How to Get Away with Murder crossover is happening in three weeks. You can watch the teaser trailers here. That same night, Grey’s Anatomy will introduce its spinoff, Station 19.

More Firefly is coming … in the form of novelizations, so.

UnReal’s showrunner knows that season 2 wasn’t great, you guys don’t have to keep bugging her about it.

“Forget all of the specifics of what happened with Trump winning and Hillary losing and whatnot — I do think the one thing that came out of it is that people want what they imagine is authentic. And Selina does fake authenticity better than anyone.” — the showrunner of Veep on that brilliant show.

Five minutes of Jimmy Fallon is about the ideal amount.

Time’s Up

Thirty-eight male music executives have joined the chorus criticizing Neil Portnow and demanding that the Recording Academy become more transparent.

Cristina Garcia, a California Assemblywoman who has championed the #MeToo movement, has been accused of sexual misconduct by one of her staffers.

The LAPD has sent three sexual assault cases against Harvey Weinstein to the DA’s office for possible charges.

I don’t want to be the thought police and criticize how people respond to this whole moment in time, but, ugh, come on,  Thomas Middleditch. You think it’s “scary” being a man right now? Try being a woman for five minutes, dude.

Interesting: Danneel Ackles insinuates Mark Schwahn punished her character on One Tree Hill because he was an asshole.

This story continues to touch every part of Hollywood (and America): The Four, as you’ll see below, has been renewed but without judge Charlie Walk who was accused of sexual harassment; and a major producer whose emails about Rose McGowan Harvey Weinstein used to defend himself has killed herself, which you can also see below in the R.I.P. section.

Jill Messick, Producer, and Studio Executive. Messick apparently killed herself, and her family is saying she was “collateral damage” in the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Ugh.
