Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News
Even Yellowstone has gone woke, and gay!— Aubrey Huff (@aubrey_huff) December 20, 2022
An incredible exchange. One you can build an entire novel or "prestige film" in your head with. pic.twitter.com/ADeQIiLoDT— Rick Paulas (@realrickpaulas) December 20, 2022
@Yellowstone what the hell Taylor…you’ve become no different than “woke Marxist’s”…couldn’t you imply she’s gay without you shoving “woke” down our throat? we had ONE decent place to enjoy a great show… I know you’re rich and don’t care, but some of us do.— Mark P (@poloroof) December 20, 2022
@Yellowstone I remarked to my wife how wholesome the concert scene was and that every other show would have shown a bunch of gays instead. I spoke too soon, obviously as this show, too, also had a "oh yeah, look at the gays" moment. It felt so forced and out of place.— designatedvillian (@458socomready) December 20, 2022
Yellowstone just went woke with it's first lesbian character and a kiss between tho girls. It was only a matter of time. It's Hollywood after all. Was nice while it lasted.— The Black Eagle 🇦🇱🇩🇪🕋 (@renimcd) December 19, 2022
Don’t forget that Kevin Costner is part of the woke crowd. He was heavily backing Lizzy Chaney in her re-election campaign.— Mcvey Ross Andrew (@McveyRossA) December 20, 2022
I mean, just imagine thinking Liz Cheney is part of the “woke” crowd. JUST IMAGINE.
But this, Taylor Sheridan, is why people refer to Yellowstone as a “red state Game of Thrones.” A LOT of your fans are in red states and apparently your messages about “the displacement of Native Americans and the way Native American women were treated and about corporate greed and the gentrification of the West, and land-grabbing” … and that being a bad thing? It’s not getting through to them. They’re not getting it, pal. (These are the same people who think that Homelander is the hero of The Boys, by the way, and they don’t have a lot of high-level critical thinking skills. They are the reason we have to actively teach kids reading comprehension because there are some people who just do not come by it naturally.)
The Witcher showrunner is being really cryptic about Henry Cavill’s departure from the series and suggesting that there’s more to the story that remains to be told. HMM.
The premiere of Wednesday was streaming’s second-biggest week ever. The biggest was the first full week of the fourth season of Stranger Things — emphasis on fourth.
There’s this whole conversation about “Nepo Babies” happening right now, and Lily Allen — who is a nepotism baby — felt like she needed to defend herself and nepotism in general (she did not). So then people started reminding her of the time that she was offered the role of Theon Greyjoy’s sister on Game of Thrones simply because she was Alfie Allen’s sister in real life.
This is hilarious because Lily Allen is a singer and was offered the role of Yara Greyjoy on Game of Thrones.— 𝑀. (@FavoriteMWord) December 20, 2022
The only reason she turned it down was because her real life brother Alfie played Theon Greyjoy. https://t.co/0kYJJvwPuK
This is the first I’ve heard of this, but also, gross.
Mother Leiomy is not happy with you, HBO Max.
@hbomax I’m gagging at how y’all just wiped Legendary off of your app as if it never existed.— Leiomy not “Lei” (@leiomy) December 20, 2022
Brandi Glanville is accusing Piper Perabo of having an affair with Brandi’s then-husband Eddie Cibrian back in the day. I hope LeeAnne is keeping an eye on her husband.
Britney Spears is not only alive, she’s on vacation in Mexico, living her best life. All y’all need to calm down.

Sonya Eddy, Actress best known for her role as Epiphany Johnson on General Hospital, but also other roles including on Fresh Off the Boat, Seinfeld, Those Who Can’t, Joan of Arcadia, Ptolemy Gray, Black Jesus, and many, many others. She portrayed a nurse on General Hospital, and in real life advocated for them, especially during the pandemic. She will be greatly missed on General Hospital, where she really was the beating heart of the hospital itself and the show.
The official announcement makes it real. 😔@TheRealSonyaEd was my friend & I am heart-broken by this news.— yvette nicole brown (@YNB) December 20, 2022

I always loved whenSonya looked at me like this, we had a very sweet connection and she always made me laugh. ☮️ pic.twitter.com/zY4jM2BnWK— Maurice Benard (@MauriceBenard) December 20, 2022
Her smile could power a reactor. I loved the few times we worked together, but I REALLY loved the times we would talk about life, meditation, acting. She was a gift & she is missed already. Condolences to her loved ones. #RIP #SonyaEddy @GeneralHospital pic.twitter.com/2iVpscKUlD— Jon Lindstrom (@thejonlindstrom) December 20, 2022
The world dimmed last night. Lost our brilliant&beautiful inside&out Sonya. Details will emerge. It is enough now to say we won’t see her like again. I was BLESSED to know her. @TheRealSonyaEd @GeneralHospital @SoapDigest @SoapOperaNetwrk #heartbroken #gonetoosoon #SonyaEddy— Carolyn Hennesy (@carolynhennesy) December 21, 2022
RIP Sonya Eddy, one of a dwindling number of memorable guest stars on "Seinfeld" — and she did it twice. pic.twitter.com/MVX18VFxTd— Matthew Rettenmund (@mattrett) December 20, 2022
Sonya Eddy had a beautiful voice and was given the chance to showcase it through her role as Epiphany Johnson. Here is one of my favorites “Live On” which was performed during Kiki’s homegoing in 2018. #GH #SonyaEddy pic.twitter.com/CK4BfhLcH5— ryan w. (@SourceRyan) December 20, 2022
