Want to binge ‘Fringe’ for free? Good news!

Amazon has launched a free — but ad-supported — streaming channel called Freedive on the IMDB site. It will host shows like Heroes and Fringe, and some movies. So here’s your chance to go back and watch Fringe, one of the most underappreciated sci-fi shows, and maybe I’ll finally move my recaps over here. Watch Freedive here:  http://www.imdb.com/freedive

Please get help, Artie Lange.

Time’s Up

Cristiano Ronaldo is cooperating with the Vegas rape case against him, submitting a DNA sample. Meanwhile, he is denying having ever met Jasmine Lennard, the UK Celebrity Big Brother contestant who alleges he emotionally abused her.

R. Kelly’s daughter posted a statement on Instagram about the sexual abuse allegations against her father, stating that she hasn’t been in touch with him for years and that he is a monster. “I do apologize if my silence to all that is happening comes off as careless. That is my last intention. I pray for all the families & women who have been affected by my father’s actions. Trust, I have been deeply affected by all of this,” and “The same monster you all confronting me about is my father. I am well aware of who and what he is. I grew up in that house. My choice to not speak on him and what he does is for my peace of mind. My emotional state. And for MY healing.”

Netflix isn’t going to film in North Carolina because of their anti-LGBTQ laws. Good. DO YOU HEAR THAT, TEXAS LEGISLATURE?

There’s a whole controversy happening over an exclusive interview Les Moonves gave to an outlet associated with The Financial Times, the controversy being that he didn’t give the interview at all, apparently. FAKE NEWS.

Australian actor Craig McLachlan has been charged with one count of assault and eight counts of indecent assault.
