Alan Cumming Returned His OBE To The Palace Because He Doesn’t Want To Be Associated With “The Toxicity Of Empire”
That’s Plain Old Alan Cumming to you, pal! Don’t you dare call him Sir, Dame, Esquire, Baron, Earl, Marquis, Viscount, or Duke while that one is on the throne? Not that Alan’s newly shed designation as an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, or OBE, entitled him to use any of those titles, but it’s the principle that counts. People reports that as a gift to himself of the occasion of his 58th birthday, Alan returned the title bestowed upon him by THE QUEEN in 2009 in recognition of his work as an actor and advocate for LGBTQ+ rights. Apparently, that OBE doesn’t hit the same when the figurehead of the British Empire is an absolute clown.
The Future Of “The Peltz Beckham Empire” Is Uncertain As The Beckham And Peltz Families Continue To Feud
I’ve got to be honest with you, I thought initial reports that Victoria Beckham was in a blood feud with her new daughter-in-law, Nicola Peltz, were a bit of a goof. Just a fun, petty little diversion. I certainly could not have predicted that in just a matter of months, the Beckhams and the Peltz would be settin’ up on their palatial porches, shotguns at the ready, willing to risk it all to become the Hatfields and McCoys of the 1%. Boy was I wrong. Page Six reports that Brooklyn Beckham’s parents, the model and the footballer, are going toe-to-toe with Nicola’s parents, the billionaire and his wife, over the future of the burgeoning Peltz Beckham empire. Sources say the cessation of mutual Instagram liking between Victoria and Nicola is merely “collateral damage” in a fight that is threatening to destroy them all, or at the very least, Thanksgiving in Turks and Caicos.
Terrence Howard And His Wife Are Under Investigation For Tax Evasion
The Blast is reporting that Terrence Howard is now under federal investigation for criminal tax evasion. I guess Terrence realized that Empire wouldn’t last forever and so he was trying to keep those riches safe. He saw Jussie Smollett get off for his alleged crimes and was like, “I could do that.” Well, girl, next time hire some hot body builders, because it doesn’t look like you can.
“Empire” Will End After Season 6 And Jussie Smollett Is Probably Not Coming Back
At the beginning of the month it was reported that Empire will be back for another season. The show was in a weird state of unknowing after Jussie Smollett allegedly staged a hate-crime against himself. Suddenly no one cared about Cookie’s one-liners or plots about the show since it was all about Jussie. Was he going to stay on the show? Was he going to go to jail? Was he going to have to pay Chicago? There were a lot of questions and now we have the answer to one about the show. It’s been announced that the upcoming sixth season will be it’s last and you can expect Jussie to not be there.
“Empire” Will Return For A Sixth Season Without Jussie Smollett
Last week, in an attempt to make everyone forget how Jussie Smollett turned the entire country into Velma from Scooby Doo when we unmasked the culprit behind his alleged attack in January as (GASP!) JUSSIE SMOLLETT, FOX aired an episode of Empire featuring the first marriage between two black gay male characters ever. However, as groundbreaking as that wedding was, the reception should have included an appearance from Flo Rida as the musical guest because those ratings were low, low, low. Luckily for the cast and crew of Empire they will live to fight for another season of drama and Lucious’ questionable hairstyles. But if you’re hoping to see Jussie in season, six let that go right now because it’s most likely not happening.
The “Empire” Cast Wrote An Open Letter In Support Of Jussie Smollett
Deadline is reporting that the cast and crew of Empire have come to a consensus (at least in public forums) and they are going to back up their Jussie Smollett despite him maybe faking a hate crime against himself. The mess which kept getting messier is now maybe messier? Or maybe some would consider this less messy? Since it’s like he’s maybe keeping his job? So his mess is ending? But then keeping him is a whole mess in itself, right? Oh well, lets dive in.
