Getty Family Goes After FX’s Trust: Could This Be the Beginning of the End for TV’s True Crime Wave?

Bringing a true story to life on the small screen is hard work.

There’s an intense amount of work that must go into researching the story as fully as possible, securing the rights to someone’s life, finding actors who look similar enough and is also the best choice for the role, and walking the increasingly fine line of being respectful to real-life folk, some of whom are still living, while still being as entertaining and dramatically propulsive as possible.

And as FX has begun learning the hard way, there’s the added pressure of both legal ramifications and PR nightmares should the subjects of the projects—or their families—truly not be on board with your vision for their story.

Looking Back at Rob Kardashian’s Whirlwind Year on His 31st Birthday

March 2017

Despite having called off their engagement the month before, Blac Chyna joins Kris JennerKhloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian for Rob’s 30th birthday celebration. The entire family enjoys a private screening of Beauty and the Beast, and a source tells E! News Rob is eager to start “focusing more on himself, the baby and work.” 

April 2017:

Back together so soon? Rob and Chyna surprise fans with a cozy reunion on Snapchat, but the Lashed Salon owner steps out days later without her engagement ring

A source ultimately clarifies their status, sharing, “They are co-parenting and independently working on themselves but they’re more cordial now than they have been, which is why they hung out recently. But by no means are they back together.”

Saturday Savings: Olivia Munn’s Shearling Jacket Is Now Only $50!

Spring has almost sprung! Too bad it’s still pretty cold in most places across the U.S. 

Lucky for us, Olivia Munn‘s shearling-lined jacket from Ann Taylor is now on sale for $48.88, down from $198. The actress wore the budget-friendly topper while working in Toronto last week (so it’s got to be pretty cozy). She layered the jacket with an all-white ensemble, including a white hoodie, cropped tee and high-waist jeans. Snow-bunny chic? More like snow-bunny strong! 

You may have reservations about buying a winter coat or any cold-weather piece so late in the season, but actually, it’s the best time to do so. Retailers put their winter wear on major sale so they can make room for spring inventory. Get a few more weeks’ use out of this celeb-approved staple, then wear it every day come next fall. 

Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn’s Romance Rewind: Looking Back on Their 35-Year Romance

Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn‘s long-lasting relationship is absolutely worth celebrating! 

While the famous pair has never tied the knot, the couple has raised three children together—Oliver Hudson, 41, Kate Hudson, 38, and Wyatt Russell, 31—all of whom have followed them into show business. 

It’s also admirable to see the two high-profile actors still together after 35 years. So what is their secret? Goldie revealed it partly has to do with sex. “I think sex is very important in a relationship and a long-term relationship actually suffers because people aren’t playing together anymore,” she previously told Extra.

She also admitted that they had their ups and downs, but the key to a successful relationship is wanting to work through it. “You have to want  to stay together, and we really want to,” she told People. “Therefore you work to be together.”

As Kurt celebrates his 67th birthday today, we decided to look back at just some of the couple’s cutest comments in our romance rewind gallery below. 


How The Good Fight Offers a Break From Reality…With a Donald Trump Twist

The Good Fight‘s Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) has always appeared to be calm, cool and collected. That all changed with season two.

That’s not to say Diane Lockhart has lost her dignity, but the character is having trouble pretty much just living her life. The Good Fight is set in the real world with Donald Trump as president. It’s a world Diane, nor Baranski, ever thought she’d be in. The very first episode of The Good Fight began with Diane in shock over Trump’s win. Fast forward a year to the season two premiere and Diane is self-medicating with psychedelic mushrooms. Yes, that Diane Lockhart, the brooch-wearing, famously sage attorney from The Good Wife, is doing micro-dosing shrooms.

Aaron Hernandez’s Double Life: Inside the Aftermath of His Suicide and the Questions Left Unanswered

Aaron Hernandez‘s suicide last April meant the disgraced former football star’s short life was over, but it did not mark the end of his story.

To the families who lost loved ones, his death—which came two years after he was sentenced to life in prison for a 2013 murder and five days after he was acquitted in a 2012 double homicide—didn’t change the fact that their lives were forever altered. 

And to his family, it meant there was no longer any chance, no matter how slight in the first place, that Hernandez would walk free, or get any sort of help. His conviction was under appeal when he died.

Over the objections of prosecutors, the state of Massachusetts vacated his murder conviction weeks later, the legally mandated outcome in cases when the defendant dies before the appeals process has been exhausted.

Kate Middleton Shows Baby Bump in Another Chic St Patrick’s Day Look

The Duchess of Cambridge, who is pregnant with her and Prince William‘s third child, showcased her baby bump in a warm, green Catherine Walker coat on Saturday as the two attended the annual Irish Guards St Patrick’s Day Parade at Cavalry Barracks in Hounslow, England in frigid weather.

Kate paired the look with a green Gina Foster Meribel hat, grey gloves and black suede pumps.

During the event, she she presented shamrocks to officers and warrant officers and also paused to pet Domhnall the Irish wolfhound, the Guards’ pet dog and mascot.

Blac Chyna Wishes Rob Kardashian Happy Birthday Months After Split Drama

Blac Chyna took to Instagram Stories late on Friday to wish her ex Rob Kardashian a happy 31st birthday.

The two, who share 1-year-old daughter Dream Kardashian, split in early 2017 after a one-year on-and-off relationship. Much drama followed their breakup. In July, Rob posted naked pics of Chyna and a video of her kissing another man, which he said she sent him. He accused her of cheating. Chyna accused him of domestic violence and obtained a temporary restraining order against him. In September, she dropped her case and she and Rob reached a custody agreement over their daughter.

“Happy birthday Rob from Dreamy and Chy,” Chyna wrote in her Instagram post on Friday, alongside a throwback photo of her, Rob and Dream.

Karlie Kloss Responds to Taylor Swift Friendship Breakup Rumors

Model Karlie Kloss says “don’t believe everything you read” when it comes to the recent rumors regarding her and Taylor Swift‘s friendship.

In August, Swift released her controversial “Look What You Made Me Do” video, which shows her wearing a T-shirt bearing names of her friends. Kloss’ is not seen, and this, as well as the fact that she and Swift have not been photographed in public together since 2016, sparked speculation that she was no longer in the pop star’s squad. A source later told E! News that the two”are still good friends” and “had NO falling out whatsoever.” In December, Kloss wished Swift a happy birthday with a selfie of the two.

On Friday, the New York Times ran an interview with Kloss and said that she and Swift continue to be good friends and talk frequently.

“Don’t believe everything you read,” Kloss said, in response to the rumors about their friendship.

Brad Pitt vs. the Rumor Mill: Why He’s the Target of Even More Wild Stories Than Usual

No news is probably good news if you are Brad Pitt.

But apparently it’s not the greatest if you’re just really invested in what’s going on with Brad Pitt.

No longer newly single, nor is he even divorced yet, and with no films coming out in 2018, the actor has retreated into enigma mode in recent months, choosing to operate almost entirely under the radar while he has the opportunity to do so. He went to Sean Penn‘s annual Haiti benefit in January, where he was outbid to watch Game of Thrones with Emilia Clarke, and then he went to two parties earlier this month—the Gersh Agency’s pre-Oscars shindig at Chateau Marmont and a dinner for Penn’s new book at Giorgio Baldi—and that’s about it as far as high-profile socializing has gone.

Which isn’t to say he isn’t socializing at all. He’s just doing so in places where the cameras can’t follow.

However, not being a visible participant in the Hollywood game hasn’t made him any less irresistible of a target when it comes to speculation as to what he’s up to behind closed doors.

Blake Lively Perfects the LBD and More Best Dressed Stars

Even though it’s still winter, stars were shining bright this week.

Celebs like Blake Lively and Eiza González sparkled like diamonds at Lorraine Schwartz’s launch of The Eye Bangle, while celebs like Alicia Vikander and Krysten Ritter stood proud as the badass leading ladies of their projects, Tomb Raider and Marvel’s Jessica Jones respectively, on the red carpet. Then, there was Storm Reid, the 14-year-old star of A Wrinkle in Time, who has been demonstrating her budding fashion sense on her press tour.

Between movies premieres and beauty launches, there was a lot going in the celeb world, and a lot to dress for. 

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Teases Global Destruction, New Alliances and Thanos’ Rise to Power

After the events of 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, the heroes are “fractured at the start of the movie. It was always the intent, in a larger arc, to split the Avengers up before the greatest threat they’ve ever seen,” co-director Joe Russo recently told Entertainment Weekly. “Thanos is a virtually indestructible character, which makes him an extremely difficult character to fight.”

Downey, who launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2008 with Iron Man, promised a spectacular climax in Infinity War. “Believe me, I’m tired of every movie, you know, ‘It’s the end! It’s Armageddon! It’s the be-all, end-all, forever!’ And then it’s…not. This one actually is,” Downey told the magazine with a laugh. “They’re not kidding. This is a heads-will-roll scenario.”

“The notion of an ending, the notion of a finale, became very intriguing to us, on large part because you don’t see it that often in this particular genre,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige added. With this film, and its 2019 sequel, “We’re going to pull out the stops, and stop exploring conventions, and look to do stuff where we go, ‘Oh, but if we do that, that’s very, very definitive,'” Downey said. “Well, great, let’s get definitive for a change! We’re like a family now. Ten years later, we’re hanging out and having lunch, and kind of wondering when the draft is going to come in. Which one of us bites it and when?” At least some of the character will not survive, as screenwriter Stephen McFeely said, “It’s safe to say we will say farewell to people.”

But before then, the heroes must unite to stop Thanos.
