Cable network BET has been slapped with a discrimination lawsuit by former head of original programming Zola Mashariki, who was fired in April while on medical leave for breast cancer.
The lawsuit, which was filed late Wednesday in California federal court, targets BET, Viacom and former BET president of programming Stephen Hill, alleging gender discrimination, defamation, violation of the Family Medical Leave Act and more.
"The Company fosters a good old boys' club atmosphere and mentality that are hostile to women and their advancement," the complaint alleges. "This misogynistic culture, which marginalizes, demeans and undervalues women, begins at the top of the corporate structure."
It appears Miley Cyrus can be tamed after all: Pop music's enfant terrible has turned over yet another leaf, sobering up and quitting weed.
“I used to [resist changing]. But I haven’t smoked weed in three weeks, which is the longest I’ve ever [gone without it]. I’m not doing drugs, I’m not drinking, I’m completely clean right now. That was just something that I wanted to do,” she told Billboard magazine.
“I like to surround myself with people that make me want to get better, more evolved, open. And I was noticing, it’s not the people that are stoned. I want to be super clear and sharp because I know exactly where I want to be.”
May 4 is every Star Wars fan's favorite pun-based holiday: Star Wars Day. "May the Fourth be with you."
To help celebrate, we've assembled every single Los Angeles Times movie review of the films that make up the franchise, dating back to 1977. Spoiler alert: We definitely liked some films more than others.
The most recent installment of the franchise, of course, is “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” released in December. In his review, The Times' movie critic Justin Chang dubbed the standalone anthology film “Star Wars: Episode III.V — Dawn of a New Hope," describing it as “a swiftly paced, rough-and-ready entertainment that, in anticipating the canonical events of 'A New Hope,' manages the tricky feat of seeming at once casually diverting and hugely consequential.”
Clearly, the "Modern Family" cast didn't call one another before getting dressed for the comedy series' For Your Consideration event presented by the Television Academy in North Hollywood on Wednesday.
Maybe Ariel Winter had a hot date or a singing gig or plans to meet up with the cast of "Game of Thrones" to ride a dragon. Who knows.
Whatever the reason for her not-like-the-others styling, the 19-year-old rocked it. Memorably.
Viewers now can get a steaming shot of romance with their cup of "Morning Joe," as co-hosts of the MSNBC morning show Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have confirmed their engagement.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the pair revealed a recent breathless jaunt to the south of France, where Scarborough popped the question to a relatively unsuspecting Brzezinski.
Both Scarborough and Brzezinski have been married before — twice for him, once for her — and have kept their relationship cloaked until now. As for sitting down with Vanity Fair in such a public fashion to announce their engagement, the couple attributes the choice to the six children they have between them.
A funny thing happened to Stephen Colbert during his extended run at the top of the late-night ratings: After one of his many segments attacking President Trump went viral, people on social media started asking that CBS #FireColbert over something he said on Monday's show.
Colbert did not respond to the campaign Tuesday, but on Wednesday the issue led his show. "I'm your host, Stephen Colbert," he said. "Still? Am I still the host? I'm still the host!
"Now, folks, if you saw my monologue on Monday, you know that I was a little upset with Donald Trump for insulting a friend of mine," Colbert began. "So, at the end of that monologue I had a few choice insults for the president in return."
Most everyone is trying to cross over with pop and glossy production values. What happened to the true stylists? I grew up with [Merle] Haggard and [George] Jones and Lefty [Frizzell] and Hank [Williams] and Loretta [Lynn]. There's no way you couldn't know whose voices those were after hearing two words.
Brad Pitt has become a matcha-swilling, pottery-sculpting couch surfer in the aftermath of his divorce from Angelina Jolie. And he's all the better for it.
He's lonely in the wake of his divorce, living out his days in his solemn L.A. Craftsman with only his narcoleptic bulldog Jacques to keep him company, but also reformed and introspective, he tells GQ in its summer 2017 issue.
He's not going through a midlife crisis, he said, but is getting "back to feeling," something he’s spent a lot of time avoiding.
