Claire (Natalie Zea) tried to escape Maniac Mansion with Joey on this week’s episode of The Following.  Unfortunately, she determined to do this by literally walking out the front gate, and was quickly apprehended.

Shirtless Ghosts of Dead Gay Lovers and Kidnappings Abound on Fox's The Following

Jacob (Nico Tortorella) was not having a good day, on this week’s The Following.  Since smothering BFF/sometimes lover Paul (Adan Canto), the cultist’s first kill, Jacob’s gone a bit mental. 

He kept having vivid hallucinations of Paul wearing just a towel, telling him to kill Emma (Valorie Curry), Paul wearing just a towel, a brutally murdered Emma, and Paul wearing just a towel. Did I mention Shirtless Paul was back, and wearing just a towel much of the time? 

Inside Maniac Mansion, Jacob kept scoffing at Emma’s overtures to explain about abandoning him and Paul.  Their leader, Joe (James Purefoy) encouraged them to make amends.  By the episode’s end, Jacob appeared to ignore his hallucinatory dead boyfriend's instructions  and followed Joe’s advice. He and Emma fell back into bed together.  READ MORE

Fresh Prince's Janet Hubert READS Wendy Williams in an Open Letter!

Don’t expect former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air mom Janet Hubert to invite talk show host Wendy Williams over for a girl's brunch anytime soon. The All My Children and One Life to Live alum tore Williams a new one, after watching former onscreen daughter Tatyana Ali be grilled by Williams on her self-titled talk show, about what exactly made Hubert leave the 90’s sitcom.  Hubert stated:

Wendy Williams, or whatever you are supposed to be, I’m not quite sure. I’m writing you yet again, to appeal to your sense of womanhood or manhood as some suggest. Please close your mouth about things that you know nothing of.

Now, I watched your show to see dear Tatyana Ali sadly to say, fall into your trap. She even brought pictures of our days on the show from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. You know most people watch you just to see what heinous things your mouth will say compared to what an overflowing volcano will spew forth on that day. Now perhaps other black women have allowed you to berate them and continued to support you in this manner of madness and rewarding hatefulness. It seems to have become the norm and has taken over our society completely. But I, Janet Hubert, sat there and watched you tell the world that I was not a nice mother. I’m thinking to myself, the only person who has the right to say that is my child. So I sat there and watched you like some devilish sinkhole swallow up Tatyana Ali You reduced her to a child sitting their attempting to keep some semblance of dignity about her as you pried and invaded her life until you got what you wanted.
