Is Ellen Thinking About Quitting Daytime TV?

Ellen Degeneres recently signed a contract extension to continue her daytime show until the summer of 2020 . . . but in an interview with the "New York Times", she said she almost turned it down.

Ellen says her brother wants her to go on with the show arguing that in the age of President Trump, the country needs her positive, unifying voice on TV every day.

 

But her wife Portia De Rossi doesn't agree.

 

Portia told the "Times", "I just think she's such a brilliant actress and stand-up that it doesn't have to be this talk show for her creativity. There are other things she could tackle. I don't see the end of her show as her career ending."

Would you be willing to give up your phone for ALL of next year? What if someone paid you big bucks to do it?

Vitaminwater just announced a new contest where they'll pay someone $100,000 if they give up their phone for ALL of 2019.

 

And you have to take a LIE DETECTOR at the end to prove you stuck to the rules.

 

If you did, you get $100,000. If you only made it six months, you get $10,000.

 

But they don't want you to be totally screwed in case of emergencies, so they'll be giving you a, quote, "1996-era cellular telephone" that you can use for calls.

 

If you want to enter the contest, you need to post on Twitter or Instagram and say how you'd use your year if you didn't have your smart phone, and use the hashtags #NoPhoneForAYear and #Contest. Entries are due by January 8th.

Pete Davidson says he’s sick of the bullying, unleashes on his trolls

Pete Davidson’s been having a rough year. Even when things were good with Ariana Grande, the public was giving him hell. And he decided to unload on Instagram yesterday. 

 

He said, "I'm trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts or frame of reference . . .

 

"I've been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months. I've spoken about [borderline personality disorder] and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don't want to be on this earth."

 

But he added, "I just want you guys to know, no matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself, I won't. I'm upset I even have to say this. To all those holding me down and seeing this for what it is . . . I see you and I love you."

"You're holding his pecs and his six-pack . . . and it's so glorious!"

Last year, UPSIDE-DOWN Christmas trees that you hang from the ceiling went viral.

HBO is Using “Intimacy Coordinators” for All the Sex Scenes on Its Shows

Over the past several years, HBO has kind of become “the channel with all the sex.”  So it makes sense that they’re leading the way in making sure that no issues pop up while they’re FILMING all that sex.

They’re now using “intimacy coordinators” on all their shows.

The intimacy coordinator’s job is to make sure everybody’s cool with everything that goes into a particular sex scene, and that nothing inappropriate happens while the cameras are rolling.

This idea actually came from Emily Meade, who plays a prostitute on  “The Deuce”.  She says,  “When it comes to sexuality, which is one of the most vulnerable things for all humans, men and women, there’s really no system.

“There’s never been a person required to be there to protect and bring expertise.”
