Citing her advanced age, legendary actress Olivia de Havilland has filed a motion in her "Feud" lawsuit for a preferential trial date this fall.
De Havilland's attorneys filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, requesting that the jury trial be set in November or no later than 120 days of her motion being granted. The 101-year-old is hoping that a judge will fast track the trial during her Sept. 13 hearing date, which is just days before "Feud" is expected to be a big winner at the Primetime Emmy Awards. (The miniseries is nominated for 18 awards.)
The "Gone With the Wind" star sued FX and "Feud" showrunner Ryan Murphy last month over her depiction in the miniseries about rival actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. The two-time Oscar winner, who was played by actress Catherine Zeta-Jones on the show, makes legal claims about violations of her common law and statutory rights of publicity, her right to privacy and unjust enrichment.
President Trump announced Wednesday via Twitter that he had decided to reverse the Obama administration's decision to allow transgender people to serve openly in the armed forces.
“Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail," the president tweeted.
A 2016 study commissioned by the Pentagon found that Obama's decision could increase military medical spending anywhere from $2.4 million to $8.4 million annually, a 0.13% increase over current medical spending.
Snarky model Chrissy Teigen has joined the list of Twitter users barred from seeing President Trump's tweets.
Because when "you're fired" no longer applies, "you're blocked" does.
The "Lip Sync Battle" co-host and outspoken critic of the president shared her new achievement -- and a screen grab notifying her that she can no longer view tweets on Trump's personal account -- with a post on Monday night.
"Despacito" singers Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee and co-writer Erika Ender have condemned Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro for appropriating their international hit song for political gain.
The chart-topping Puerto Rican recording artists and Panamanian songwriter on Monday called out Maduro, currently the subject of violent and sometimes fatal nationwide protests over his policies, for reworking their lyrics to appeal to voters during his weekly television show on Sunday.
The revision promoted the leader's plans for a controversial citizen's assembly to be elected on July 30 and tasked with rewriting Venezuela's 1999 constitution and bypassing the opposition-led legislature.
“Broad City” creators and stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson consider the bleeping out of President Trump’s name from the comedy’s upcoming fourth season a different kind of joke.
The two appeared onstage Tuesday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Beverly Hills to discuss the new season and how they reworked the show in the wake of Trump’s election.
“We just got to a point where in real life we’re talking about the current administration, we’re talking about Trump — and it sounds so gross every day saying it so many times," Glazer said. "We just didn't want to share airtime. He’s got enough of that.… It’s just a different kind of joke. It’s like an audio joke.”
The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards just made it a lot harder for Kendrick Lamar to stay humble.
Announced Tuesday morning on Instagram Live, Lamar and the video for "Humble" scored the most nominations with eight, followed by Katy Perry and the Weeknd, both nabbing five apiece.
The VMAs also announced plans to follow in the footsteps of this year's MTV Movie & TV Awards by doing away with gendered categories. Best female video and best male video have now been collapsed into artist of the year, and the network has also introduced a "fight against the system" award for videos that actively fight injustice.
