Russian Doll Season 1 Recap Netflix’s season 1 followed Nadia as she relived her death over and over again. Alan was also reliving his death, and they were connected. While those around her and Alan appeared unaffected by the time loops, they emerged changed, possibly for the better. To close out our season 1 recaps, we are reviewing the impact the time loops had on Nadia and Alan. Nadia’s Apathy At the beginning of the season, Nadia appeared to go through life as if she didn’t care what happened to her or anyone outside of her friends. Constantly dying and facing her own mortality gave Nadia a new appreciation for her own life. She also went out of her way to try and save others, like Horse, Ruth, and Alan, with the knowledge she gained through the loops. Nadia and Her Past Nadia’s mother, Lenora, killed herself when Nadia was young. Nadia felt she had betrayed her mother by going to live with Ruth. This feeling that she was messed up had affected her relationship with John and drove her refusal to meet his daughter, Lucy. Through the loops, she was forced to confront her younger self and the memories of instability from when her mother was alive. Nadia finally met Lucy and gave Lucy her favorite book. Alan and Letting Go Alan was extremely buttoned-up, and it affected his relationship with Beatrice. She had cheated on him with Mike, and it made him depressed and bitter. He confronted Mike at Nadia’s party, but the realization that his loop started with killing himself was devastating for him. With Nadia’s help, he accepted his break-up with Beatrice and was able to move on. Nadia and the loops shook him out of his need for constant perfection in his life.

A Connecticut woman who was caught on video hurling racial slurs at a black couple and spitting at them has reportedly lost her job after the footage went viral on social media.The video shows a white woman—who has since been identified as Corinne Terrone, a now former Hamden Public Schools employee—using the N-word several times during an altercation with a black couple in an East Haven, CT ShopRite supermarket.It’s unclear how the encounter began, but the short clip starts out with Terrone shouting “Don’t you dare talk to me like that in front of my children motherf**ker!” She then utters a few inaudible words, but you clearly hear her saying the n-word not just once, but TWICE in the same sentence.WATCH HERE:The man Terrone is yelling at can be seen rushing towards her in anger, as the people he’s with try to calm him down, saying “Don’t do it.” But Terrone yells “Put your hands on me, come on!” before pulling out her phone and pointing it in his face as if to record him. The man then quickly knocks the phone from Terrone’s hand and another man gets in between them.As the first man walks away, Terrone runs after him screaming “Oh you motherf**ker!” as the man yells back to her “I’m a n****r right?” She responds, “That’s right, you’re a n****r in East Haven!”Mind you … the woman does all of this in plain view of her two young children.When a person who appears to be a store employee comes forward, Terrone yells “F**k you n****r!” and then spits at the man she’s been calling the n-word. When he spits back at her, she turns around yelling “You motherf***er!” and then spits AGAIN in the direction of him and another woman holding him back.Terrone says the n-word four times in the less than one minute clip, which was uploaded Friday night (Mar. 15) and has been viewed nearly 400,000 times with nearly 10K shares and 3K comments. “Share Tf outta this… racist ass bitch at east haven ShopRite,” the video’s uploader, Tatiana Winn, wrote in the caption.Here’s another angle where you can hear and see things a bit more clearly:It didn’t take long for Corinne Terrone’s employers to respond to the footage either. By Saturday morning, Hamden Schools Superintendent Jody Goeler identified Terrone as the woman in the video and a statement from the said that she had resigned from her position.She was a clerical worker at the school district’s central offices and did not work directly with children.“We have become aware of video footage that appears to show an employee in our district engaged in abhorrent conduct. Specifically, the video appears to show the employee repeatedly calling an African-American man the N-word in a supermarket in East Haven,” the statement read.“While it appears as though this happened after work hours on Friday evening, the Human Resource Director contacted the employee and arranged an investigatory meeting with her. Shortly after final arrangements were made for the investigatory meeting, the employee rendered her resignation effective immediately.”The statement continued: “The language the employee used in the video is in conflict with the values of the Hamden Public School System. Someone who will use that sort of language in any setting, whether public or private, is not someone we want anywhere near our children. The employee is separated from service, and we hope that her children will receive the support they need after witnessing such a traumatic event.”The statement from the district also noted that a DCF report was filed because the woman’s children were present.Hamden Mayor Curt B. Leng applauded the school district for moving so swiftly after being alerted about the video.“I’m really proud of our superintendent and the Board of Education,” Leng said in a statement Saturday. “They took this matter with the utmost level of seriousness. They took immediate action this morning.”Mayor Leng added: “I think the action — the decisive action that was taken — very clearly shows that this type of repulsive behavior is not acceptable here and it won’t be tolerated.”According to the , Terrone’s next-door neighbor, who is black, was shocked to hear about the incident and said that his grandchildren play with her kids.“She’s always been the sweetest woman in the world,” the man said, adding that she was an “excellent” neighbor but was in “a bad situation.”East Haven Police Lieutenant Joseph Murgo said in a statement that the department was “aware of this disturbing video and the hate speech contained in it,” but no complaint has been filed yet.“We are in touch with ShopRite and are looking to get a better understanding of what took place (Friday) night,” the statement said.Lt. Murgo asked that anyone with any information to come forward and also suggested that the victims reach out to police.Murgo said that Terrone could face a number of possible charges, the minimum being breach of peace, and he also noted that spitting is considered a form of assault. is a post from:

A former girlfriend of R. Kelly’s is speaking out about the abuse she suffered at the hands of the singer during their 9-year relationship.If you watched Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly docu-series, the name Dominique Gardner should sound familiar. The final two parts of the six-part series showed footage of Dominique during her relationship with Kelly, following her mother as she rescued her from a Los Angeles-area hotel where she was allegedly being held against her will.Speaking with the documentary’s producers, Gardner described much of what R. Kelly imposed on his alleged victims, including a set of rules that he expected the women to follow, like wearing baggy clothes (so that other men couldn’t admire their bodies), calling him “daddy” and asking for permission to eat or use the bathroom.In a new interview with , Gardner goes further into detail about her nine years of hell with the singer who is now facing 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.“I couldn’t even have a drink without his permission,” Gardner said. “I’m a grown-ass woman, and I’ve gotta ask you if I want a drink? Everything you do, you have to ask him. That’s not living, that’s not normal. I’ve got to ask to use the f**king bathroom? Are you serious? I’m about to pee on myself if I can’t get in contact with you. What the f**k is this?”Dominique said that she was the “tomboy” of the group of girls living with Kelly. Before being rescued by her mother, she stayed with Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, who are both still with the singer.Gardner said that she was the most rebellious of the bunch and would often disobey Kelly’s rules, which would result in her having to face the “consequences,” including being spanked, slapped, beat and sometimes being hit with an extension cord. “It’s like a parent when your children go against your word,” she explained.In one incident, after she threw a carrot at Kelly, Gardner said the singer “grabbed me and he pulled my hair out, and I had, like, patches torn from my hair.”Despite going through all of that, Gardner said she doesn’t regret being with Kelly.“I loved him to death, you know what I’m saying? But he needs help. Who doesn’t need help?” she said, adding that she wouldn’t use the words “brainwashed” and “cult” to describe the control he had over her and the other women.“I am not just about to spread lies about him,” she said. “I wouldn’t even say ‘mind games.’ It was just the fact that he tried to break me. I couldn’t be broken. He wanted that control over me, and I wouldn’t give him that power. So, he figured, like, If I don’t give her food, she’ll come around. Nope. I’d rather die than come around and give you my soul.”Dominique said she has a permanent reminder of her time with Kelly—a pair of tattoos she has of his face on her leg and rib cage.She also said she doesn’t believe Kelly deserves to go to jail in his criminal case and should instead be placed on house arrest and receive counseling.“I feel like he should be on house arrest in a studio, because, like I said, his music makes him get through the situations, what he’s going through. Jail time, no. He needs to have a twenty-four-hour therapist at his house,” she said.Addressing Kelly directly, Gardner said he needs to be honest about his behavior. “You can stop the cycle,” she said. “Just be honest. People don’t want you in jail.” is a post from:

American Gods renewed for third season with new showrunner has brought word that the acclaimed Starz adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel American Gods has been renewed for a third season on the premium cable network with Charles “Chic” Eglee attached as the new showrunner. The second season of the epic fantasy series saw a lot of developmental issues behind the scenes as original showrunners, Bryan Fuller and Howard Green, exited halfway through the writing process due to creative differences and were replaced by Gaiman and Heroes alum Jesse Alexander, only for Alexander to be fired by Starz right before production was slated to begin on the eight-episode second season and Gaiman being busy with the BBC/Amazon Prime adaptation of his novel Good Omens, which he wrote and was the showrunner on. “Audiences continue to worship at the altar of American Gods and we are excited to be able to announce to all the true believers that there is more of this fantastical series to come,” said Starz programming boss Carmi Zlotnik in a statement today “With Chic at the helm, the invaluable insight and contributions of Neil Gaiman and the undeniable talent of this dedicated cast and crew, we know that the show will continue to deliver on the vision and promise laid out in the novel.” Eglee is well-known for his work writing on and executive producing numerous hits including the acclaimed Showtime crime comedy Dexter, Jessica Alba’s breakout in the short-lived series Dark Angel, FX’s police drama The Shield and AMC’s long-running post-apocalyptic drama The Walking Dead. The decision to hire Eglee comes a week after the second season debuted on Starz to high ratings for the network. “I’m thrilled American Gods has been renewed for a third season, and even more thrilled that I’m getting to work on it with Chic Eglee,” EP Gaiman said “Chic is the best partner-in-crime. We’ve been working for weeks now on the shape of the season and I’m delighted that he gets to carry the American Gods torch on to glory. Thank you to Fremantle, Starz and Amazon for having faith in the series, to Bryan, Michael and Jesse for bringing it this far, to all the cast and crew, and most of all to the viewers. It’s their love of the characters that took us to this point, and will take us on to the next chapter.” We were forged in God’s image, but the Gods are also made in ours — and in Season Two the battle moves inexorably toward crisis point as the destinies of gods and men collide. While Mr. World plots revenge for the attack against him in Season One, Shadow throws in his lot with Wednesday’s attempt to convince the Old Gods of the case for full-out war, with Laura and Mad Sweeney in tow. A council at the House on the Rock explodes into chaos, sending deities both Old and New on quests across America that will converge on Cairo, Illinois forcing Shadow to carve out a place as a believer in this strange new world of living gods — a dark world where change demands commitment, and faith requires terrible sacrifice. stars Ricky Whittle (The 100, Austenland) as Shadow Moon, Ian McShane (Deadwood, Ray Donovan) as Mr. Wednesday, Emily Browning (Sucker Punch, Legend) as Laura Moon, and Pablo Schreiber (Orange is the New Black) as Mad Sweeney.

The CW’s Nancy Drew pilot adds Freddie Prinze Jr. as Carson Drew Freddie Prinze Jr. (Star Wars Rebels) has joined The CW’s pilot as Nancy’s father Caron Drew, has confirmed. The pilot is based on the long-running mystery novel series by Edward Stratemeyer. Prinze’s Carson is a dynamic attorney who has become estranged from Nancy following the recent death of his beloved wife. His attempts to reconnect with her run aground when Nancy’s murder investigation reveals unsettling secrets from Carson’s past. Prinze’s last live-action series regular role was in Season 8 of Fox’s thriller 24 back in 2010. His recent credits include Star Wars Rebels, Robot Chicken, Movie Trivia Schmoedown, and Bones. The actor is best known for his work in She’s All That, Scooby-Doo, I Know What You Did Last Summer franchise, and the TV series Freddie. Prinze joins cast members Kennedy McMann (Law & Order: SVU), (Florence Foster Jenkins), Maddison Jaizani (Versailles, Into the Badlands, Tyrant) and Alex Saxon (The Fix, The Fosters, Finding Carter). The Nancy Drew pilot centers on 18-year-old Nancy Drew (McMann) and is set in the summer after her high school graduation. She thought she’d be leaving her hometown for college, but when a family tragedy holds her back another year, she finds herself embroiled in a ghostly murder investigation. Along the way, she uncovers secrets that run deeper than she ever imagined. From Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s Fake Empire and CBS TV Studios, the Nancy Drew pilot is written and executive produced by Noga Landau, Schwartz, and Savage, and is directed by Larry Teng. Melinda Hsu Taylor also serves as executive producer. A number of attempts to capitalize on Nancy Drew have come and gone over the years, dating all the way back to 1938 when Warner Bros. first purchased the character created by Edward Stratemeyer as a counter to his Hardy Boys series. Most recently, a 2007 film from Warner Bros. starring Emma Roberts fizzled at the box office ($30.7 million worldwide on a $20 million budget) and with critics (49% on Rotten Tomatoes), thus canceling the studios . NBC attempted to last year via Doubt creators Tony Phelan, Joan Rater and Dan Jinks and, funny enough, CBS TV Studios with Nancy Drew, featuring an older incarnation of the character. The show never materialized. CBS Studios, Phelan, Rater and Jinks also previously adapted the character into Drew starring Sarah Shahi, which went to pilot and got close to a series order, but was ultimately scrapped. Drew likewise served more as a sequel to the books and featured a much older, grittier version of the character. Currently, there’s a Nancy Drew from Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, and Red 56 titled Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase, starring It’s Sophia Lillis as the titular hero. The film, directed by Katt Shea (Poison Ivy) from the screenwriting team of Nina Fiore and John Herrera (The Handmaid’s Tale, The Vampire Diaries), focuses on Nancy Drew, a smart high schooler with a penchant for keen observation and deduction, who stumbles upon the haunting of a local home. A bit of an outsider struggling to fit into her new surroundings, Nancy and her pals set out to solve the mystery, make new friends, and establish their place in the community. No release date has been announced for the film adaptation, which is currently in post-production. (Photo Credit: Getty Images) The post appeared first on .
