Will Maggie be ‘The Walking Dead’s’ next victim? Maybe! (But probably not.) (Updated: But maybe?)

UPDATED: Uh-oh, looks like Cohan has signed on to an ABC pilot, Whiskey Cavalier. While this isn’t exactly a certainty that she’s leaving The Walking Dead, it also means she’s not fucking around, either.

This contract negotiation with Lauren Cohan is heating up. Prediction: this will go all the way to the wire, but they will eventually come to terms and Cohan will be paid almost, but not quite as much, as Lincoln and Reedus and Maggie will return to The Walking Dead. They simply can’t afford to lose any characters that are fan favorites and have been with the show this long, not after killing off Carl for dumb reasons.

But can I just pause here and say, What the fuck, AMC? Why you so stingy, guys? This is the most popular show on television, and you’re telling me you can’t pay your female lead — which Cohan is — the same as your male leads? Bulllllllshit. Let me just tell you, the optics on this are not great for you, not in this particular moment. I’d find the money if I were you.

You can watch the first episode of Heathers in iTunes for free right now. The show will officially debut on Paramount Network on March 7.

“Honey, no one has time for grooming in the Battle of the Bastards.” Truer words have never been spoken.

Fergie is sorry, guys. (Good for her for having the humility to recognize she done messed up.)

Stewie’s sexuality is going to be addressed on Family Guy. Which, sure. Fine. OK.

Fox News is going to launch their own streaming service with all the Sean Hannity and Jeanne Pirro you can stomach. That should certainly help matters.

Reminder: Piers Morgan is an asshole who pulls these stunts just so that we will talk about him and by that metric, I just fell into his trap.


David Parfitt, a producer on My Week With Marilyn, has accused Harvey Weinstein of physically assaulting him. He’s not the first man to come forward saying that Weinstein was rough with him, but there haven’t been as many as I suspect are actually out there.

Heather Graham says that Israel Horowitz assaulted her. Double horror points for the fact that she once dated his son.
