Robin Roberts Epically Shades Omarosa On-Air: 'Bye, Felicia'

38 minutes ago

"Bye, Felicia!" 

That's the only thing Robin Roberts has to say to Omarosa Manigault Newman, after the former reality star resigned from her role in the White House with the promise to share her story in a tell-all. 

“She said she has a story to tell, I’m sure she’ll be selling that story,” Roberts said on Thursday's Good Morning America, before hilariously concluding with a “Bye, Felicia.”

The White House announced on Wednesday that Omarosa, who appeared on President Donald Trump's The Apprentice, had resigned as his director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison. It was later reported that Omarosa was actually fired from her position, which she denied during a sit-down interview with Gma's Michael Strahan on Thursday, announcing plans to "tell her story." 

Roberts was quickly celebrated for her sassy comment on Thursday, with viewers taking to Twitter to praise "the classiest shade I have ever seen thrown."

Et has your exclusive first look at this week’s all-new episode of the We tv hit, which finds Tamar seeking counsel about her marriage from her father, Michael Braxton. Tamar tells her dad she just can’t handle doing everything with her husband, Vincent Herbert, anymore. She needs a break.

Jessica Chastain Opens Up About Salma Hayek's 'Heartbreaking' Op-Ed on Harvey Weinstein

1 hour ago

Jessica Chastain has Salma Hayek's back. 

Et spoke with the Molly's Game star at the premiere of the film in New York City on Wednesday, where she opened up about Hayek's recent op-ed for The New York Times. In the piece, Hayek detailed the struggles of bringing her 2002 film, Frida, to screen, and alleged harassment by Harvey Weinstein

"Salma Hayek, what an incredible artist, what an incredible woman, what an incredible humanitarian," Chastain told Et. "That piece really showcases why it is important to have more woman in leadership positions, because, first of all, what a producer she was."

"Highlighting everything she went through to get her movie made, she's such an accomplished, incredible human being [and] a voice we need in our cinema, in our society," she continued. "I hope we're getting to a point where we're making lasting changes so women like Salma Hayek won't have to go through what she did. It's really heartbreaking »

Morgan Spurlock Confesses to Years of Sexual Misconduct

2 hours ago

Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock is being very honest about how he's treated women in the past. 

The 47-year-old Super Size Me director took to Twitter on Wednesday to proclaim that he is "part of the problem," and recalled instances where he has committed sexual misconduct, including settling a harassment allegation and cheating on his wives and girlfriends.

“As I sit around watching hero after hero, man after man, fall at the realization of their past indiscretions, I don’t sit by and wonder 'Who will be next?'" he writes. "I wonder, ‘When will they come for me?'"

Spurlock goes on to reflect on a time in college when he says he "hooked up" with a girl who then wrote a short story alleging that he raped her. “I didn’t know what to do,” he recounts. “We stopped having sex and I rolled beside her. I tried to comfort her. To make her feel »

Lenny Kravitz Opens Up About His Infamous Nsfw Wardrobe Malfunction in Sweden

2 hours ago

Lenny Kravitz still isn't shy when it comes to his underwear preferences -- namely, that he prefers not to wear any.

The handsome 53-year-old rocker sat down for an interview with Mr Porter, in which he talks about his signature style over the years. Kravitz says he still prefers to go commando, and addresses his infamous wardrobe malfunction in 2015, when his leather pants split as he was performing onstage. Since Kravitz doesn't wear underwear, he ended up exposing himself to the entire crowd.

“Do I have any underwear on now? No. Thus the problems that I incur," Kravitz notes.

"I didn’t rip them,” he now laughs about the Nsfw incident in Sweden. “They became ripped. It was fine. But it was a little cold in Sweden. I would’ve warmed it up a little, had I known."

Kravitz also candidly opens up about his love life in the interview, including his intense »

Keegan-Michael Key Fulfills a 'Dream Deferred' in 2017 (Exclusive)

2 hours ago

There’s no doubting that Keegan-Michael Key is a funny guy, as he’s proven on the Emmy-winning Comedy Central sketch series Key & Peele and with scene-stealing roles in everything from Pitch Perfect 2 to the first season of Fargo on FX.

But after Key & Peele came to an end in 2015, Key says he purposefully sought out work that would take him as far away from the sketch comedy world, which, also thanks to his years on MadTV, had defined much of his career up until that point. “I felt like we had done almost as much as we could do with the form,” he tells Et, and he was ready to set his career on a new course with roles that tapped into his classical training.

The first sign of that transition came in 2016 with Don’t Think Twice, a dramedy about standup comedians, and then a leading role as Ethan on Netflix’s Friends From College. But it was »

Susan Sarandon Proves Why TV Is the Right Place to Be (Exclusive)

2 hours ago

Susan Sarandon is no stranger to television.

In fact, the longtime actress starred in several TV films early in her career. But outside of a handful of notable recurring roles, Sarandon, who won a Best Actress Oscar in 1995 for Dead Man Walking, had never starred on a series until 2017, when she portrayed Bette Davis in Ryan Murphy’s new FX anthology series, Feud, which launched with Bette and Joan. It seemed like a role that Sarandon was destined to play, with her likeness often having been compared to that of Davis.

Yet, portraying the Hollywood legend -- an opportunity she’d been offered time and time before -- wasn’t something Sarandon was keen to do, especially when the scripts she read were nothing more than “bitchy one-liners.” “It’s not enough to think Bette Davis is cool,” the actress told Et earlier this year. “What do you do with her then?

Lois Smith Delivers a Career Best With 'Marjorie Prime' (Exclusive)

2 hours ago

When it comes to collecting recent accolades like Windsor International Film Festival’s lifetime achievement award, Lois Smith, who made her film debut in 1955’s East of Eden opposite James Dean and has had notable roles in Twisterand on True Blood, says it’s mostly a matter of longevity. “Those words,” she tells Et, referring to lifetime achievement, “are a little alarming.” But all the recent fuss, as she describes it, comes as the longtime actress is earning the best reviews of her career for Marjorie Prime, a sci-fi film directed by Michael Almereyda based on the Pulitzer Prize-nominated play by Jordan Harrison.

“It’s not why one does the work, but it’s nice when it happens,” Smith says ever-so-diplomatically as she’s perched on a sofa in the lobby of the Thompson Hotel, just outside the Loop neighborhood of downtown Chicago.

Ray Romano Reveals the Secret to Becoming a Better Actor (Exclusive)

2 hours ago

For comedian Ray Romano, 2017 has proven that it’s never too late to explore a new side to your career.

Made famous by starring as the titular character on Everybody Loves Raymond for nine seasons, Romano has managed to maintain a successful career even after the series took its final bow in 2005.

After an extended and beloved role on NBC’s Parenthood and a lead on the short-lived HBO series Vinyl, Romano proved he could take on serious and dramatic roles like the best of them -- but don’t expect him to forget his comedic roots anytime soon.

“If a good, full-out comedy came my way I would definitely consider it, and these ‘serious’ projects I’ve done have all had comedy mixed in with the drama. I do like the mixture of the two,” Romano tells Et about his recent pattern of more emotional roles.

Romano’s love for the mixture of comedy and drama was »

Megan Mullally Savors a Surprising Career First With Return of ‘Will & Grace’ (Exclusive)

2 hours ago

“Sometimes I’ll see somebody and they just instantly burst into tears.”

Megan Mullally is talking about especially animated fans who recognize her as Karen Walker from Will & Grace, which returned to NBC in a roundly celebrated revival this fall. “I always just give them a big hug and I’m like, ‘I’m so boring! You don’t understand,” she adds.

But admirers old and new of Grace’s brassy assistant will agree that there’s nothing boring about Mullally’s scene-stealing character, whom audiences first met during the series’ original eight-season run from 1998 to 2006. When the sitcom’s famous foursome first reunited last September for a video to encourage viewers to vote in the 2016 presidential election, the biggest bombshell came with Karen’s choice of candidate.

“She’s a Trump supporter on paper,” Mullally tells Et over the phone from her home in Los Angeles. The political tone of the PSA, which served as a precursor »

Beanie Feldstein Is the Broadway Star-Turned-Movie Star Next Door (Exclusive)

2 hours ago

Eight shows a week, Beanie Feldstein takes the stage at the Shubert Theatre in New York City to perform in the revival of Hello, Dolly! Wearing a pastel pink bodice adorned with frilly violet lace, a bustling striped skirt and a mop of curls atop her head, the 24-year-old belts out a rousing rendition of “Motherhood” as shop girl Minnie Fay. "I stand for motherhood, America and a hot lunch for orphans / Take off your hat, sir, while your country's flag is passing," she sings alongside her co-star, Bette Midler.

It's quite a Broadway debut, one that Feldstein, who spent her formative summers at the prestigious acting camp Stagedoor Manor and her high school years obsessing over musical theater with best friend (and Dear Evan Hansen star) Ben Platt, could only have dreamed of. Being cast in the company of a legend of screen and stage in an award-winning production -- Midler won a Tony for Hello, Dolly »

How Ari’el Stachel Is Expanding Middle Eastern Visibility on Broadway (Exclusive)

3 hours ago

The stage door opens and, just as Ari’el Stachel is about to leave the Ethel Barrymore Theatre for the night, a young girl throws her arms around him for a hug to say ‘Thank you.’ “I feel like myself, but then realize I’m having this seismic impact on [her life], and it’s tremendous,” the 26-year-old tells Et of the response from audiences for his Broadway debut as Haled, one of the Egyptian police band members who gets stranded in a remote Israeli town in The Band’s Visit.

A year and half ago, Stachel, who’s had small roles on Blue Bloods and Jessica Jones, was on his couch waiting for the phone to ring with any acting job offer. After seven rounds of auditions within nine months, he landed the part in The Band’s Visit, which first premiered Off-Broadway at the Atlantic Theatre in November 2016 before transferring to Broadway this fall.

‘Glee’ Star Alex Newell ‘Provides’ in Broadway Debut in ‘Once on This Island’ (Exclusive)

3 hours ago

About halfway through the Broadway revival of Once on This Island, the god Asaka takes center stage during “Mama Will Provide,” a bombastic number about aiding the story’s heroine, Ti Moune (Hailey Kilgore), a peasant girl who falls for a wealthy boy from the other side of their Antilles island nation, on her journey to find love. Played by Alex Newell, the actor and singer famous for playing the transgender student Unique on Glee, the flamboyant and vibrant god sashays her way around the sand-covered stage, filling the Circle in the Square Theatre with song.

It’s a show-stopping moment that brings audiences to their feet. Suddenly, the energy of the show is lifted by Newell’s rousing Broadway debut, a standout performance among acting and Broadway veterans (Lea Salonga, Greenleaf’s Merle Dandridge and Quentin Earl Darrington) who play the island’s other three gods.

For Newell, the initial performances and subsequent reactions came as a surprise »

‘Search Party’ Breakout John Early Has a Ball Playing a Mess Onscreen (Exclusive)

3 hours ago

“I don’t know people who are just the right balance of quirky, I only know people who are too much,” John Early tells Et.

It’s easily a sentiment that applies to the indelible characters Early has already created in his relatively short yet rising career -- most notably the shameless narcissist-turned-murder accomplice Elliott Goss on the TBS black comedy Search Party. The series, which returned for an even darker and more hilarious second season in November, sees Elliott unraveling in spectacular fashion -- making 2017 another standout year for the actor.

“I was really touched when I read all the scripts for this season,” Early tells Et of returning to Search Party, which also stars Alia Shawkat, Meredith Hagner, John Reynolds and Brandon Micheal Hall. “I just felt like [co-creators Charles Rogers and Sarah-Violet Bliss] knew that I would have so much fun sh*tting in my pants, having a rash and watching my hair fall out.”

'Blindspot' Sneak Peek: Patterson Starts to Lose It Working 24/7 to Take Down Hirst (Exclusive)

3 hours ago

The clock is ticking for the Blindspot team's secret quest to take down shady FBI Director Eleanor Hirst.

In Et's exclusive sneak peek from Friday's episode, titled "Fix My Present Havoc," the gang sets up shop, making Jane (Jaimie Alexander) and Weller's (Sullivan Stapleton) apartment a second home base outside the official FBI walls as they work day and night to investigate Hirst (Mary Stuart Masterson), who they've just learned is working with the enemy.

The Blindspot crew's around-the-clock investigation, however, is clearly taking a toll on their mental state, as Jane and Weller observe when it comes to Patterson (Ashley Johnson). "Morse code? More like horse code. So dumb!" Patterson snickers on an early Saturday morning, slightly delusional from lack of sleep.

But Jane and Weller receive a surprise holiday present for Weller's young daughter, Bethany, from dear Roman (Luke Mitchell), the puppetmaster behind their current chaos. "Merry Christmas, Bethany. Love, Uncle »

Why Molly Bernard Is the Most Reliable Ensemble Player on ‘Younger’ (Exclusive)

3 hours ago

When Molly Bernard -- a newcomer at the time, with a few TV credits to her name -- was first cast on Younger, it was only to be in a handful of scenes. In fact, her audition -- just six lines -- involved a discussion about Liza’s (Sutton Foster) lower body landscaping. But the locker room scene served as an early indication of what Darren Star’s creation would excel best at: multigenerational female bonding and a frank depiction of sexuality. Eventually, the TV Land series would feature moments like tram sex, with Hilary Duff’s character, Kelsey, in an outrageous encounter over Roosevelt Island, and more of Bernard as the scene-stealing Lauren, a pansexual, sex-positive millennial publicist and friend to Liza and Kelsey.

Over the course of the series, Lauren would introduce her friends to the “bad pancake” dating theory, host her own bat mitzvah, convince Liza to sell her used panties and often run away with »

How Aubrey Plaza Broke Out of the Box in 2017 (Exclusive)

3 hours ago

To the naked eye, it looks as though Aubrey Plaza is reinventing herself. The 33-year-old actress, famous for her portrayal of the lovably sardonic April Ludgate on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, has spent the last year portraying characters far different than her familiar depictions of eye-rolling best friends in wacky comedies.

But to Plaza, it’s just a matter of scheduling. “Being on a television show for seven years, it's hard to break out of that box,” she says, speaking by phone with Et. “I guess to everyone else it's a reinvention, but for me, it's something that I've always been.”

With three projects in 2017 -- FX’s Legion, Ingrid Goes West and The Little Hours -- that showcased some of her best acting to date, Plaza has proved once and for all that she is a formidable talent, not just a sitcom trope.

Her year started off strong with a complex role on the first season »
