A Blue’s Clues Reboot: Why Nickelodeon’s TV Remake and Revival Fever Makes the Most Sense

Nickelodeon is bringing back another classic children’s TV show with a Blue’s Clues reboot. We’re calling this a reboot because the network is on the hunt for a new host to helm the 20-episode iteration. Sorry Steve and Joe!

This is just the latest reboot/revival for Nickelodeon. In a TV landscape obsessed with breaking through the clutter of endless channels and streaming services with original programming  recapturing viewers of yore, it actually makes sense for Nick to mine its programming library more than any other network.

The new Blue’s Clues will have a “refreshed signature look” and production is planned to begin summer 2018. For your chance to become the new Steve, head over to Nickelodeon’s casting site.

Demi Lovato Is Happily Single–and Ready to Slide Into Your DMs

Demi Lovato is giving her heart a break—for now, at least.

Gracing the April cover of InStyle (on newsstands March 16), the “Tell Me You Love Me” singer—who is currently on tour with DJ Khaled—speaks about adjusting to life as a single woman in her twenties. “I’m not suffering because I’m alone. There were many years I was in a relationship and I wasn’t learning about myself,” says Lovato, who recently reconnected with her ex, Wilmer Valderrama. “Now I’m learning about what I like, what I need, and what I want.”

Lovato is open to dating both men and women. “I’m very fluid, and I think love is love. You can find it in any gender,” she argues. “I like the freedom of being able to flirt with whoever I want.”

“I’m normally the first one to make the move. I’m always the one who says, ‘Let me get your number,'” adds Lovato, who uses an online dating app. “Or I slide into their DMs on Instagram.”

Silicon Valley Executive Producers Reveal Their Unfiltered Side of TJ Miller’s Exit

It’s been nearly a year since TJ Miller said goodbye to Silicon Valley and now we’re hearing the show’s side of the tumultuous story. 

In a candid interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the HBO series’ co-creator and co-executive producer Mike Judge said it “just wasn’t working.”

“There are a lot of different ways you can find out somebody doesn’t want to do the show anymore,” Judge told the magazine. “And it’s not fun to work with someone who doesn’t want to be there, [especially when] they’re one of the main people and you’ve got however many crewmembers and extras and people who are [not paid as well] and they’re all showing up before 7 a.m., and then are just like, ‘Oh, OK, we’re not shooting today.'”

THR cited multiple show sources who claimed there were times the actor, who played longtime central character Erlich Bachman through season four, would arrive “under the influence.” His lateness, according to the magazine, would complicate schedules and, per insiders, he would fall asleep between takes.

Paris Jackson to Fans: Stop Darkening and Lightening My Skin in Photos

Paris Jackson is happy in the skin she’s in.

Overnight, the late Michael Jackson‘s daughter took to Twitter to make a request. “i appreciate everything y’all make for me, i enjoy every single edit i see. but please stop lightening my skin to make me look more white. and please stop darkening my skin to make me look more mixed,” the teen star tweeted. “i am what i am. I’m aware of what i look like and i finally happy with it.”

Paris, who often shares fans’ edits on Instagram Stories, spoke about her racial identity in a 2017 Rolling Stone cover story. “I consider myself black,” she said, adding that her dad “would look me in the eyes and he’d point his finger at me and he’d be like, ‘You’re black. Be proud of your roots.’ And I’d be like, ‘OK, he’s my dad, why would he lie to me?’ So, I just believe what he told me, ’cause, to my knowledge, he’s never lied to me.” The Hollywood scion understood people’s confusion, explaining, “Most people that don’t know me call me white. I’ve got light skin and, especially since I’ve had my hair blond, I look like I was born in Finland or something.”

Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines Are Having a Baby Boy!

Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines are expecting a baby boy! 

Chip announced the news in a tweeted video on Wednesday. The clip shows the Fixer Upper star asking a young boy named Gage for baby name ideas. The shiplap sweethearts met the child at the Tim Tebow Foundation’s recent golf outing.

“We’re just about to have another little baby, because Uncle Chip lost his mind,” Chip told the youngster, producing a laugh. “Now, listen to this. This is important: I can’t think of a ‘D’ name. So, can you help me think of a ‘D’ name?” 

Chip and Joanna already have two boys whose names start with the letter D: Drake, 12, and Duke, 9. They also have two girls: Ella, 11, and Emmie Kay, 7. 

Chip then told Gage Joanna is pregnant with a little boy.

“Is that a secret? I don’t know. That might not even be allowed on Twitter,” the HGTV star said. “You better keep that to yourself, dude. But listen to me: It’s a little boy, and I need a ‘D’ name. And so far, all I can come up with is Dragon. [Joanna was] like, ‘You are not calling that baby Dragon!’ Can you help me?”

Chip was happy to have Gage share the big news.

“Alright, alright.. if we’re going to announce the gender of our 5th child. It might as well come from my new friend #Gage,” he tweeted along with the video. “Take it away my man. @tebowfoundation.” 

My Dinners With Antoni: I Made All the Queer Eye Recipes in One Weekend

Ever since the reboot of Queer Eye hit Netflix last month, there are a lot of questions everyone has been asking. 

Which guy does the most work? Why does Bobby barely get any screen time? Is it because he does the most work? Can Tan please come to my house and save me from myself? Which queer guy is the best queer guy and why is or isn’t it Jonathan?

But perhaps the biggest question many have had is: Can Antoni actually cook?

Antoni Porowski, the show’s so-called “food and wine” expert, is extremely cute and charming, but in one episode, he teaches a Nascar-loving cop to make a salad of sliced grapefruit and avocado, so some have wondered if his face and calming voice and love of slicing things is distracting us from the fact that he’s kinda silly.

Gary Oldman’s Son Gulliver Fiercely Defends His Father After Resurfaced Domestic Abuse Allegations

Gary Oldman‘s son has taken a public stand in support of his father.

On the heels of resurfaced reports regarding 2001 domestic violence accusations against the actor from his third ex-wife, the new Oscar winner’s son, Gulliver Oldman, has issued a public letter fiercely defending his dad. In the lengthy statement, the 20-year-old son of Gary and Donya Fiorentino called the rehashed claims “false allegations,” took aim at The Daily Mail‘s February interview with Fiorentino, in which she described their allegedly turbulent marriage, and at “clickbait journalism” and the “judgment by headline” that can ensue in the digital age. 

“There is good reason that these specific articles and accusations subsided years ago,” Gulliver wrote. “In my eyes it is disgusting that so called ‘journalists’ have seen fit to spread and perpetuate the lie.”

The 7 Craziest Things Said by The Real Housewives of Potomac in the Season 3 Trailer

And while the entire two-minute video is plenty juicy, with big drama ahead as the ladies try to get to the bottom of Ms. Huger’s financial situation and Monique seems on the verge of some sort of breakdown, there are a few moments that stood out to us as perfect highlights of this group of ladies’ unique set of charms: namely, throwing shade like nobody’s business.

1. “Read my f–king lips: Karen is debt-free and loaded.”—Karen, setting the record straight for all the haters. (Though, doth the lady protest too much?)

2. “We’ve got to do a drive-by.”—Gizelle’s plan when Ashley mentions talk that Karen doesn’t even live in that new house of hers in Great Falls. (The cut to Robyn in a hilarious pizza man disguise is inspired and well worth the price of admission alone.)

3. “She woke up in a ditch.”—Gizelle, talking about Monique, we think.

4. “Y’all ain’t no friends of mine to sit there and say that you’re concerned, but I’m throwing shade and I’m throwing hate and I’m throwing lies. That’s what y’all do. Bottom-behind tricks!”—Monique, introducing us to our newest favorite insult.
