Mia Farrow Accused Of Brainwashing and Abusing Her Son

In 1992, Mia Farrow accused Woody Allen of molesting their adopted daughter, Dylan, amidst their nasty divorce and custody battle.

Allen denied the allegations and an official investigation turned up empty, so he was never charged with the crimes.

Over a decade later, in 2014, Dylan herself went public with claims of molestation against her father. The open letter was published by Nicholas Kristof in his New York Times blog, and was even backed up by Dylan’s brother Ronan. But once again, Allen insisted that the claims were false.

All the while, Farrow’s name was in the clear – until now. In a new book about Allen’s career, another one of their kids, Moses, is making some serious allegations against his mother.

Moses, who has always voiced support for his father despite his siblings’s accusations, made the claims in an interview for Eric Lax’s new book Start to Finish: Woody Allen and the Art of Movie Making.

Excerpts from the book were obtained by The New York Times and it contains numerous instances in which Moses says Farrow brainwashed her children, and was emotionally and physically abusive.

Moses, who is now estranged from his mother, revealed that Farrow was very manipulative and found ways to get her children to do whatever she wanted them to.

“Now that I no longer live in fear of her rejection, I am free to share how she cultivated and brainwashed me,” said Moses.

People.com

This isn’t the first time that Moses has spoken out about his family’s issues. In a 2014 interview with People Magazine, he placed blame on his mother for turning his siblings against their father.

“My mother drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister,” Moses explained. “And I hated him for her for years. I see now that this was a vengeful way to pay him back for falling in love with Soon-Yi.”

He also defended Allen against Dylan’s allegations saying, “Of course Woody did not molest my sister. She loved him and looked forward to seeing him when he would visit. She never hid from him until our mother succeeded in creating the atmosphere of fear and hate towards him.”

He continued, “I don’t know if my sister really believes she was molested or is trying to please her mother. Pleasing my mother was very powerful motivation because to be on her wrong side was horrible.”

People

Farrow has responded to the Times article denying the horrible claims Moses has made while expressing her heartbreak over the situation.

“Moses has cut off his entire family including his ex-wife who was pregnant when he left,” Farrow said in a statement to the newspaper. “It’s heartbreaking and bewildering that he would make this up, perhaps to please Woody. We all miss and love him very much.”

Dylan, on the other hand, hasn’t made any comments on these new allegations, but at the time when she made the accusations against Allen, she insisted that her mother “never coached her.”

“She never planted false memories in my brain,” Dylan continued. “My memories are mine. I remember them. She was distraught when I told her. When I came forward with my story she was hoping against hope that I had made it up.”

Allen has also remained quiet since Moses went public with this story.

More details about Moses’s claims are available in the book which was released in early October and currently available on Amazon.com.

Jimmy Kimmel and Channing Tatum Play A Candy Prank On Their Daughters

Every year after Halloween, Jimmy Kimmel asks parents to trick their kids by telling them they ate all their candy. It usually ends with hilarious results (for the parents at least), as you get to watch the kids process that all their trick-or-treating loot is gone.

Of course, it never actually is. The whole bit is in good fun and will undoubtedly be used as blackmail when the kids get older.

However, this year things are a little different. Because of his son’s medical needs, Jimmy Kimmel has taken a leave of absence from his show. He’s enlisted a group of celebrities to take over his hosting duties while he’s gone, such as Shaq, Dave Grohl, Channing Tatum, and Jennifer Lawrence.

Last night, it was Magic Mike’s Channing Tatum who was on-call to host, and he decided to dance his way onto the stage.

Tatum also had the honors of announcing this year’s “I Ate My Kid’s Halloween Candy” prank. But to kick things off, Tatum and Kimmel decided to get in on the action themselves.

Channing Tatum certainly loves all aspects of being a father. For Halloween, he dressed up as a unicorn to head to a party with his daughter.

As a way of embracing his host duties, Tatum decided to tell his daughter that he ate all her Halloween candy.

“Look, I figured if I’m asking you to do this to your kids, I should probably do it to mine too,” he said.

Eerly, who’s 4 year old, was not impressed.

Then, Kimmel himself sent in a video showing him doing the same to his 3-year-old daughter, Jane.

Jane didn’t seem as upset as Everly, but she was still pretty bummed.

Have you ever pulled a prank like this on your kids?

Teen Mom Star Pregnant With Another Man’s Baby After Appearing On Show With her Fiancé

Sound the alarm, because one of the original Teen Mom stars is pregnant.

Amber Portwood is expecting her second child with cinematographer boyfriend, Andrew Glennon, a source told Us Magazine.

“Amber has been feeling sick lately,” the source said. “But she’s really, really happy!”

Portwood met Glennon earlier this year when she was filming reality show, Marriage Boot Camp with ex-fiancé Matt Baier. He worked on the WE TV show and reached out to Portwood following the demise of her relationship with Baier.

The MTV reality star ended her relationship with Baier in June after discovering the former drug addict offered her co-star Catelynn Lowell Xanax.

Portwood said at the MTV Video Music Awards she wanted to take it slow with her new partner.

“We’re going slow and we’re just trying to be smart about everything, which is good to find somebody on your level like that,” she said.

Glennon on the otherhand, couldn’t stop gushing over his newfound relationship.

“It was definitely butterflies there, but then again, as we started talking, strangely I felt so comfortable, which was amazing,” Glennon said. “I feel like that’s hard to find.”

However, Amber previously said the re-diagnosis of her mental illnesses would make for a difficult pregnancy.

“I just got re-diagnosed for Borderline Personality and Bipolar Disorder, and I’ve been taking three medications now that I need to take for the rest of my life,” she said. “I can’t, I can’t get pregnant on this medication.”

Portwood later clarified while she would still be capable of bringing a baby to term, but her medication would harm her unborn child.

“If I do not have medication, I will not be normal,” Portwood said. “I would have … crazy mood swings.”

Portwood made her reality TV debut in 2009 on the hit show, 16 and Pregnant, where she gave birth to her now eight-year-old daughter Leah, with ex-fiancé Gary Shirley.

The former couple share joint-custody of Leah. Shirley previously had full-custody of their daughter, following Portwood’s five year prison sentence for drug possession in 2012. She was later released. She was released after 17 months for good behaviour.

Recently Portwood addressed her uncharacteristic absence from social media, stating she was talking time to spend with her family.

How do you feel about Amber’s second pregnancy?

She Spent Her Whole Life Believing She Was Sick, But When Her Mother Was Murdered The Truth Came Out

As you grow up, you begin to realize some things your parents told you weren’t as true as you thought. But what if you grow up and realize your entire life was a lie, fabricated by the person closest to you? What would you do?

Gypsy Rose Blancharde and her boyfriend Nicholas Godejohn were arrested a few days after killing Gypsy’s 48-year-old mother, Dee Dee Blancharde, in 2015.

Here’s what Gypsy posted on her and her mother’s joint Facebook account after her mother’s death.

Upon learning about this case, HBO created a documentary called Mommy Dead and Dearest that aired on March 2017, which recounts the peculiar life story of Gypsy and her mother.

Some condemned Gypsy’s decision to allow her boyfriend to murder her mother, while she heard from the bedroom, and others sympathized with her. But why?

Dee Dee was a simply a single mom from Missouri taking care of her ill daughter who suffered from leukemia, asthma, muscular dystrophy, brain damage, and other chronic conditions.

Well, that’s what Dee Dee had family members, neighbors, doctors-and worst of all-her daughter into believing.

Gypsy, now 25-years-old, developed normally. Her mother faked her daughter’s medical issues and made her suffer through unnecessary medical procedures, such as feeding tubes and cancer medicine. Gypsy was told that she had the mental capacity of a young child and couldn’t walk, so she was bound to a wheelchair for a decade.

Experts believe that Dee Dee suffered from Munchausen by proxy, which makes a guardian exaggerate or induce illness for attention and sympathy.

The truth slowly started to unravel and Gypsy didn’t know who she could turn to. Her mother was super controlling and didn’t allow her to make friends or keep in contact with her father or other family members.

When she secretly started an online romance with Nicholas, she told him her life story. It took two years until they planned to commit the murder.

“It’s like she played out that part of the fairy tale, you know?” Kristy, Gypsy’s stepmom, said on the HBO documentary. “She got rid of the evil [villain].”

Here’s the HBO trailer for Mommy Dead and Dearest.

Gypsy lived in a mental and physical prison for all her life, and now she is confined to four prison walls, serving 10 years for the second-degree murder of her mother. She is eligible for parole in 2024 (at the age of 34).

Disney Reveals Full Cast Of ‘The Lion King’ Remake

Last fall, while we were all reeling from the remake of The Jungle Book and anticipating the release of the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, Disney announced plans to give The Lion King the same live-action treatment that the other classics got.

Lately, Disney has found success in re-imagining their old movies. Beauty and the Beast raked in over $1 billion, so it is a no-brainer that they’re taking on one of the best animated movies next.

Moviehole

The company confirmed that Jon Favreau, the director behind the latest Jungle Book film, will spearhead the project, but at the time they did not provide us with information about the cast or a release date.

Now, over a year since Disney spilled the beans, we finally know when the movie will hit theaters and who will be starring in it.

Many fans had hoped that the original cast would reunite for the remake because honestly, it’s hard to imagine Simba without Jonathan Taylor Thomas’ raspy voice or Rowan Atkinson as Zazu, but sadly only James Earl Jones will reprise is role as Mufasa.  

denofgeek.com

With that said, the new cast features some major talent and we’re absolutely excited to see them bring one of our favorite movies to life again.

So who made the cut?

Rumors about The Lion King’s potential cast have been swirling for some time, and now we have have confirmation.

Last night, Disney sent out a tweet with a photo of the entire cast that will be voicing the characters in the upcoming remake.

Actor and rapper Donald Glover, best known for his role in Community, will take on Simba, and Beyonce will be his Nala.

Academy Award winning actor Chietwel Ejiofor will play the villainous Scar while Alfre Woodard will star as Sarabi, John Oliver as Zazu, John Kane as Rafiki, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, Billy Eichner as Timon, Eric Andre as Azizi, Florence Karumba as Shenzi, and Keegan-Michael Key as Kamari.

If you’re skeptical about the quality of the remake, don’t worry, Jon Favreau will be applying the same technology he used in The Jungle Book, which was an instant box-office hit. Since The Lion King featured animals only, the new version will be made with CGI characters, which technically still makes it an animated movie.

Disney Movies

Along with the photo of the star-studded cast, Disney revealed that the movie will be on the big screen on July 19, 2019.

That sounds like a long time to wait, but we will at least have other films from the company to hold us over till then.

Next year, Disney is scheduled to release a live-action musical version of Snow White as well as a remake of Sister Act and Oliver Twist.

Take A Peek Inside Ellen DeGeneres’s Brand New Seaside Villa

One of the best ways to grow one’s wealth is by owning real estate and this why many of the world’s biggest celebrities are constantly buying new properties.

Comedian and media mogul Ellen DeGeneres is no different. For nearly three decades, DeGeneres has bought and sold at least 15 homes.

Good Housekeeping

In an interview with Architectural Digest, the host explained that buying a house was one of her childhood dreams because her family never owned one.

“We never had a house when I was growing up. We always rented. But my father would dream, and we used to look at houses all the time,” DeGeneres said. “The first thing I did when I made money was buy a house.”

Her properties have been featured in design magazines and her portfolio even made it into books, but DeGeneres shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. She recently bought a beach-side mansion in Santa Barbara and it looks dreamy on the inside and out.

JIM BARTSCH AND DAVID PALERMO

According to Domino.com, DeGeneres bought the 6,000 square-foot house for a whopping $18.6 million dollars. The seaside villa features four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a private courtyard, a pool, tennis court, a guest house for eight, an office, three fireplaces, and so much more.

JIM BARTSCH AND DAVID PALERMO

The property was listed for only 14 days before DeGeneres scooped it up. Although it’s a downsize from her and Portia’s current 10,000-square-foot-home, it has spectacular views and amenities that many of us can only dream of.

Let’s take a look at the rest of this house’s features.

Ronda Rousey Will Be Making Her WWE Debut At WrestleMania 34

At one point, Ronda Rousey was the next “it” fighter for the UFC. She was bringing in huge crowds and massive TV ratings whenever she entered the octagon.

Then it all seemed to fall apart, she was completely obliterated in back-to-back fight. Afterwards, she seemingly fell off the map. She hasn’t fought since she lost to Amanda Nunes in December 2016.

Rousey went from being a household name in mixed martial arts to being completely irrelevant. The paparazzi still have an affection for her, and her recent wedding was widely covered.

Her name is now back in the news, for a completely different reason. For months there have been rumors swirling that she might end up trying her hand in the WWE. The WWE Diva has changed drastically over the last decade and a half. No longer are they just there to be eye-candy, they now actually have to fight, and put on a good show.

YouTube

Original talks had Rousey potentially making her WWE debut on November 19 of this year, but this has now been pushed back in order to give her more time to prepare. Some may think there isn’t much difference between the two roles, but in the UFC it was a real fight, where as the WWE is completely scripted and fabricated, both take their own specific skill sets to accomplish.

Metro

It now appears that Rousey will be making her WWE ring debut on April 8, 2018, at WrestleMania in New Orleans, Louisiana. The hypothetical match appears to put UFC fighters Rousey, Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke, and Marina Shafir up against WWE Divas Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, and Bayley.

The delay is also so that Baszier, Duke, and Shafir have time to train and prepare for their World Wrestling Entertainment debuts.

Who do you think is going to win this much anticipated potential match-up?

Dolph Lundgren’s 20-Year-Old Daughter Is A Triple Threat

Dolph Lundgren, best known for his role as the antagonist in Rocky IV, is the perfect example of don’t judge a book by its cover.

Muscle & Fitness

The Swedish-born actor has the tendency to play not-so bright characters in many of his films, but in real life, he has an impressive resume. He holds a master’s degree in chemical engineering, and at one point he was even awarded with a Fullbright Scholarship to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Lundgren also has over thirty years of acting credits to his name and a black belt in Karate. However, none of these accomplishments are as important to him as his children are.

The star and his jewelry designer wife, Anette Qviberg, have two daughters, Ida and Greta.

zimbio

Just like his co-star Sylvester Stallone, Lundgren’s family often accompany him to events and over the years we’ve seen the girls grow up before our eyes.

Today, Ida is 21-years-old and Greta is 15. The girls each have their own passions and they’ve recently taken big steps to follow them. But it is Ida who has taken after her father’s love for the camera and martial arts.

The oldest of the Lundgren sisters appeared in one of her father’s films, Command Performance, back in 2009, but nowadays she’s behind the camera for a very different reason.

These days, the charismatic Ida is a rising model who is signed with one of the world’s biggest agencies, Wilhelmina, in Los Angeles.

I like pink ☺️

A post shared by Ida Lundgren (@idaslundgren) on

The young model may not be as famous as her father yet, but if her photos suggest anything it’s that she’s a total stunner and she’s got a bright future in the fashion industry.

Let’s take a peek at some of her photos:

But don’t let her looks fool you. Ida may not appear to have an intimidating factor like her father, but she can hold her own in the ring.

The svelte model has also taken up boxing and even filmed a workout video alongside her father.

She occasionally practices with the legendary Jean Claude Van Damme’s daughter, Bianca, and both ladies are forces to be reckoned with.

As for Greta, she’s following a different path. The teen is into photography and often shares her work on her personal blog.

‘Modern Family’ Star Announces Character Is Bisexual

A star from the hit sitcom Modern Family has announced her character is bisexual.

Sarah Highland, who plays Haley Dunphy, has confirmed one fan’s question over her character’s sexuality on Twitter.

“I don’t know what the writers would say? But I confirm,” she tweeted.

While Haley’s love life has been a major plot line of the show, Hyland has only had male love interests on all nine seasons of the show, including two on-again/off-again boyfriends, Dylan Marshall and Andy Bailey.

Reid Ewing, who plays Dylan on the show, came out as gay in 2015 after a Twitter exchange with a fan.

However, when it came to Hyland’s declaration, the Twitter universe had mixed reactions.

From love:

To hate:

Despite Hyland’s claims, neither the show’s writers or co-creator Steve Levitan have responded to her declaration, People Magazine reports.

Hyland later clarified her response on her character’s sexuality was just speculation based on her own personal opinion.

How do you feel about Hyland’s announcement?

Shemar Moore Is Back On TV, And People Have A Lot Of Feelings About It

Shemar Moore was a mainstay on Criminal Minds for 11 seasons. He was a goofy, protective, and bad-ass FBI agent who stole our hearts week after week.

But after 11 years on the show, Moore decided to call it quits. Moore said he felt like it was time for a change, and his mother’s words helped inspire him.

“My mother sends me these great cards,” Moore said. “She gave me this one card and I’m looking at it right now and it says, “Leap and the net will appear.” I wanted to see what the next chapter of my acting career is and also have a little balance so I could pursue other avenues of my life. I want to get married, I want to have kids, I want to travel.”

TV Guide

One of those next chapters was a new show called S.W.A.T. in which Moore plays the lead role of S.W.A.T. lieutenant Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson. It’s Moore’s first role as a lead on a TV show, and he’s been embracing it with open arms.

The premiere has been a long time coming, and fans were starting to get impatient. However, they finally got their wish as S.W.A.T. made its television debut this week. So how did fans react to seeing their favorite FBI agent in a new role?

“This is my dream job because I’ve always believed what I’m capable of,” Moore, 47, said of S.W.A.T.. “I get to be a lead, which I’m proud of, but I’m also smart enough and humble enough to know that I can’t do it by myself and that it’s not all about me. So what I’m really proud of with S.W.A.T. is that I get to be a leader.”

CBS

It seems that fans are proud of Moore, too. All their responses to the S.W.A.T. premiere were glowing.

10 Movies That Almost Everyone Agrees Belong In A Garbage Can

How would you grade the last movie that you saw in theaters? Well, CinemaScore has wanted to know for almost 40 years. They randomly select moviegoers from different cities and ask them to grade the movie they just saw on the big screen.

Just like when you were in school, the grades range from the dreaded F, all the way up to that ever elusive A+. Many of the movies that they grade end up in the A and B range, but that’s because people who go see a new movie on opening night and far more likely to be a bigger fan of some aspect of the movie. They also speak to the movie’s target audience. This explains how a cinematic “masterpiece” like Alvin and the Chipmunks scored an A, because of course kids loved it, they’re singing chipmunks.

There have only ever been 19 movies to get the big red F stamped on them by their audiences, and here are ten of the worst of them.

With a cast of Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Dardem, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Ed Harris, you wouldn’t think this movie would have scored itself an F. Audiences just didn’t seem to enjoy this movie and they let the critics know. Although, Rotten Tomatoes has given the movie a 67{49382ccf8aa3307257579caf6f867159d328eca730a0976815a1bacefc5bc6ee} Fresh rating.

PopSugar

This 2006 remake of the 70’s cult-classic by the same name, is terrible. I have a soft spot for Nicholas Cage and I still thought this movie was one the biggest wastes of time I have ever put myself through. It received an F rating and for good reason. Don’t even bother giving this flick a chance, terrible.

Substream Magazine

I remember seeing previews for this movie and thinking to myself “that actually looks like it would be worth seeing in theaters.” Wrong, and the rest of theater audiences agreed with me. Starring Cameron Diaz and James Marsden, the story tried to make something out of nothing.

NOLA.com

Horror movies of the early 2000s were meant to be as gory as possible because people just didn’t seem to scare as easily anymore. Feardotcom centered on a serial killer that runs a website that allows viewers to watch gruesome torture and murder. Critics and audiences happened to agree on this particular movie.  

BLOOD RED REVIEWS – WordPress.com

What other movies are universally hated?

Lindsay Lohan plays two roles in this movie; a pianist and a stripper. Turns out that one of these people might just be an imaginary figure created by the other… The movie not only got an F from CinemaScore, it also won 8 Razzie Awards including Worst Picture.

Escape TV

I am not a fan of “spoof” comedy, but some people really do enjoy it. In this case they had the same opinion as me. The writers and director tried to throw everything at the audience in an attempt to be funny, unfortunately they missed the mark completely. And realistically, any movie that has a cameo from Kim Kardashian isn’t worth watching.

IMDb

An attempt to create an Australian version of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the movie sends three college kids into the Australian Outback where they run into a redneck who likes to torture and kill random strangers. It was supposed to be based on “true events”, but I am going to go with LOOSELY based on true events.

Horror Cult Films

This movie did relatively well with critics, but general audiences absolutely hated it. Some low-level criminals end up robbing a “mob-enforced” card game and Brad Pitt as the outfits hitter is sent to settle the score. It was generic in every sense of the term.

Roger Ebert

This attempt at adapting a video game story to the big screen failed miserably. Christian Slater plays a detective that deals with cases deemed “paranormal” in nature. In this particular movie he is attempting to stop inter-dimensional demons from taking over the planet. Oh yeah, Tara Reid is in this one as well and her performance is as bad as the story line itself.  

BasementRejects

John Travolta and Lisa Kudrow are a couple working at a news station who attempt to rig the state lottery. Travolta is a weatherman and Kudrow plays the woman who draws the winning numbers. The characters are so stupid that any attempt at comedy is lost on the audience at large.

Splitsider

If you’re looking to have a marathon of bad movies, this would be a great place to start.
