Oprah On Queen Sugar

If you're not planning on tuning in to Queen Sugar when it premieres on OWN, you're making a big mistake. But don't take our word for it. Allow the Queen of All Media, Oprah Winfrey herself, to explain why the gorgeous drama debuting on her network and which she co-created alongside Ava DuVernay is a must-see.

"[A] really deep connected feeling about the values that we all share as human beings, no matter what race or what background we come from," Winfrey told E! News' Zuri Hall at series' big premiere when asked what she hoped viewers took away from the show. "That you can be Southern, you can be L.A. chic, you can be rich, you can be poor, but the feeling and heart that you feel in this series is about connection. And it's about values that everybody watching also shares or has shared at some point in their families."

Queen Sugar, adapted from the book of the same name by Natalie Baszile, tells the story of the Bordelon siblings of Saint Josephine, LA as they struggle to adapt to life's new circumstances following the death of their beloved patriarch. True Blood's Rutina Wesleystars as Nova Bordelon, an investigative journalist and activist living in New Orleans, not far from her brother Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe), an ex-con making strides to rebuild his life with his young son. Their estranged sister Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner), the wife of a professional basketball player, returns home after their father's passing (and a scandal involving her husband makes living in Los Angeles untenable), forcing all three to work together to deal with their father's legacy: An 800-acre sugar cane farm.

"See, it's a very character-driven series. So much so that what happens isn't as important as who it's happening to," Winfrey told us. "What I love, too, about them is that they're just real people. They're just regular, real people that represent the people who are watching...They're just regular people trying to make their way through life, getting by, doing the best they can every day with the best choices and decisions."

And who can't relate to that?

For more from Winfrey, as well as to hear from DuVernay, Wesley and Siriboe, be sure to press play on the video above.

Queen Sugar's two-part premiere airs Tuesday, Sept. 6 and Wednesday, Sept. 7 at 10 p.m. on OWN.

Larry King With Kate Beckinsale

Acclaimed actress Kate Beckinsale sits with Larry King on the multi-Emmy nominated series “Larry King Now” and discusses a wide variety of topics with Larry, including the fifth installment of 'Underworld,' the continued fight for pay equality in Hollywood, and the 2016 U.S. election. Also, in a touching moment, Kate opens up about losing her father, famed British comic Richard Beckinsale.

Kate Beckinsale gets candid about what it was like to lose her father, famous comedian Richard Beckinsale, when she was a child, and the impact he left on both her and all of Great Britain. She admits that she used to confuse her father with John Lennon and explains why she feels some ownership over John Lennon because, “It was 1979 when he died, and John Lennon was 1980, and the feeling in the streets where we lived was very similar, so in my mind as a child, I’ve had the two events confused.”

Kate Beckinsale discusses what it was like working under the direction of Anna Foerster in the fifth installment of “Underworld,” due out later this year. Kate described working with her, saying “She was great.” Larry noted that women normally aren’t associated with action movies, to which Kate responded, “I didn’t notice any difference, really.”

The “Underworld” actress discusses pay inequality in Hollywood, noting that she found when a woman is earning the most on a film, often times there is an air of resentment on set, as if that shouldn't be the case. She says “There is definitely pay inequality, for sure,” and that “when a woman is earning a good deal of money...if she’s earning the most on the set, that can create it’s own problems. I think that there is still a kind of psychological block that probably needs still a few years to be ironed out about certain people’s resistance to that.”

Kate Beckinsale also discusses the impact her hugely popular vampire vs. werewolf film franchise “Underworld” had on the creation of other similar movies, like “Twilight,” even calling her movie “the grandma of ‘Twilight.’ She explains, “Pre-Underworld, I guess what made them go for it was somebody walked into a room and said, ‘I’ve got a novel idea. How about we put vampires and werewolves in the same movie?’ and obviously now, vampires and werewolves are in every single movie and every single of everything.”

Lastly, British actress Kate Beckinsale gives her uncensored thoughts on the 2016 U.S. presidential election and says “I find it all quite terrifying. I thought it was a joke at first, and it turns out it’s not.”

Plus, Kate Beckinsale exposes that she is co-writing a new dark comedy screenplay, and Larry attempts to cast himself as the male lead. Larry and Kate also play a game of “You Only Knew,” where Kate describes a hilarious encounter with “Hamilton’s” Daveed Diggs, and reveals that she “sort of licked him on the face.”

The episode is now LIVE on (episodes premiere daily 2pm EST)

The one-hour, drama-fueled reality show will once again take viewers on a wild ride into the lives of some of today’s hottest professional athletes from the perspective of the women who stand by their side. During the twelve episode run, newcomers Sophia Pierson and Tia Shipman will join the ranks alongside returning cast members Sasha Gates, Barbie Blank, Autumn Ajirotutu, Nicole Williams, Natalie Halcro and Olivia Pierson. Get an even deeper look behind-the-scenes of this exclusive celebrity lifestyle and unique point of view inside the world of sports when the second season of “WAGS” premieres Sunday, June 26th at 10:00pm ET/PT on E!

Tia Shipman is an elite Ford model with clients ranging from top department stores, makeup brands, as well as high fashion brands. Tia has also been successful in the entertainment industry, appearing in popular television series such as CBS’ “The Bold & Beautiful,” FOX’s “Grandfathered,” and ABC’s “Ugly Betty,” and featured in countless commercials. Tia has been linked to players from the Denver Nuggets and Indianapolis Colts. Sophia Pierson is a beauty and style expert, as well as an actress, and is the sister of cast member Olivia Pierson and cousin to cast member Natalie Halcro. Sophia has been linked to a player from the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Returning this season are:

Sasha Gates is the queen WAG of the group, married to 8-time Pro Bowl Tight End Antonio Gates.

Autumn Ajirotutu met Seyi Ajirotutu of the Philadelphia Eagles in college, and the two are now married with twin girls.

Barbie Blank rose to fame as WWE Diva “Kelly Kelly” and is married to former NHL player Sheldon Souray, most recently of the Anaheim Ducks.

Nicole Williams is a successful model who has been dating Larry English of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for five years now.

Natalie Halcro and Olivia Pierson are cousins and best friends who gained recognition for their huge Instagram following and who launched a beauty and fashion blog together. Natalie is in an on-again, off-again relationship with Shaun Phillips who has played for the Denver Broncos, Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts, while Olivia is dating Jacksonville Jaguars’ tight end Marcedes Lewis.

This season, the rivalry between the wives and girlfriends intensifies and tensions run high as the dynamic within the group continues to evolve. Barbie is busy wedding planning but things start to unravel when she finds out that her venue fell through. When she does finally does say I do – her relationship with the two other wives, Sasha and Autumn, deepens, which drives a wedge between the non-married women and further escalates the hierarchy turmoil. All the while, Sasha is working to find a balance between motherhood and her career as she makes her return to the music industry, and Autumn is focused on her marriage and on navigating her friendships with WAGS that she once trusted, but now feels have turned their backs on her. Sophia fuels that fire when she confronts Autumn about the rumors that her husband Seyi was involved in a cheating scandal. Meanwhile, Olivia’s boyfriend Marcedes starts to show signs of jealousy and even has a flirtation with someone close to her, and as Nicole gets restless waiting for Larry to propose, someone from the past comes to warn her about him. Plus, Natalie and Shaun experience some major up and downs in their relationship and have to decide if they can make it work, especially given their close ties within the group. And despite her best efforts to stay above the fray, newcomer Tia finds out that her boyfriend may not be as trustworthy as she thought.

Luis Gutierrez On Larry King

Larry King tells Congressman Luis Gutierrez "I support you completely" for leading the charge in replacing Andrew Jackson with a woman on the twenty-dollar bill.

Rep. Gutierrez proposed this switch to Congress back in May, and he’ll be on Larry King’s show PoliticKING on TUESDAY JUNE 16th to discuss his progress with the bill.

The congressman’s bill is called Put a Woman on the Twenty Act of 2015. It does not designate any particular woman, but instructs the secretary of the Treasury to convene a citizen panel to choose the woman who should replace Andrew Jackson as the face of the $20 bill.

Gutierrez tells Larry King: "We have to be reflective of our society." He's confident that "pretty soon you and I are going to take out a twenty-dollar bill and we’re going to have a woman on that twenty-dollar bill."

KING: You want to put a woman on the twenty-dollar bill?


KING: What’s wrong with Mr. President Jackson?

GUTIERREZ: I say put, you know what, put a woman right? Because, you know, how would I say it? You believe in women’s right?

KING: Sure do.

GUTIERREZ: Then we should put a woman. I look at the dollar bill, the five, the ten, the twenty. Come on. We’ve got put a woman. We have to be reflective of our society.

KING: Who have you got in mind?

GUTIERREZ: Let me just say right now, it should be a woman. My legislation says the following: That the treasury department should get together we should look. We have a lot of wonderful women that can win. There’s a contest online. And maybe we’ll respect the general public’s opinion. But I’m telling you this is growing across this nation. And pretty soon you and I are going to take out a twenty-dollar bill and we’re going to have a woman on that twenty-dollar bill.

KING: I support you completely.

Anne Meara On Johnny Carson

ABC NEWS -- Actress and comedian Anne Meara, whose comic work with husband Jerry Stiller helped launch a 60-year career in film and TV, has died. She was 85.

Jerry Stiller and son Ben Stiller say Meara died Saturday. No other details were provided.

The Stiller family released a statement to The Associated Press on Sunday describing Jerry Stiller as Meara's "husband and partner in life."

"The two were married for 61 years and worked together almost as long," the statement said.

The couple performed as Stiller & Meara on "The Ed Sullivan Show" and other programs in the 1960s and won awards for the radio and TV commercials they made together. Meara also appeared in dozens of films and TV shows, including a longtime role on "All My Children" and recurring appearances on "Rhoda," ''Alf," ''Sex and the City" and "The King of Queens." She shared the screen with her son in 2006's "Night at the Museum."

Jerry Stiller And Anne Meara

Meara was twice nominated for an Emmy Award for her supporting role on "Archie Bunker's Place," along with three other Emmy nods, most recently in 1997 for her guest-starring role on "Homicide." She won a Writers Guild Award for co-writing the 1983 TV movie "The Other Woman."

Besides her husband and son, Meara is survived by her daughter, Amy, and several grandchildren.

The family statement said: "Anne's memory lives on in the hearts of daughter Amy, son Ben, her grandchildren, her extended family and friends, and the millions she entertained as an actress, writer and comedienne."

Editors Note: I have photographed Anne Meara many times over the years. This woman was funny and full of class, that's when she wanted to be. Sometimes she just let it all out and I loved it.

Last time I saw her was around 10 years ago at some museum on the West side of New York City. I was with Golden Girl Rue McClanahan as I was her photographer and we did photos with some very old paintings for some reason. Meara pulled me aside and started making gay jokes about Rue's new husband and I was on the floor. Rue kept looking over and asking what was so funny and that made us laugh even more.

Meara was a icon in New York City and she was a true New Yorker. We could see her at Broadway shows, at cocktail parties or just walking down the street. When I first started out in this business, she was everywhere with hubby Jerry. The two of them were like glue. She will be missed, Meara was a part of television and NYC history.

Kendal Jenner

Kendall Jenner may not be home watching the Keeping Up With the Kardashians: About Bruce special with her family, but she's there in spirit.

The brunette stunner stepped out on the red carpet last night at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards—looking drop-dead gorgeous in a Balmain creation, we might add—and spoke with E! News about how proud she is of her father.

(At this time, Bruce Jenner is choosing to not live publicly in the media as a woman and will be referred to as Bruce Jenner and with male pronouns until he specifies otherwise.)

"Honestly, I've never seen him happier," she told Giuliana Rancic when asked about Bruce Jenner's decision to speak publicly about his transition.

"That alone makes me so happy. To see him so happy and to see him going through this and staying so strong and really thinking about his kids is amazing."

Earlier this month, the runway model further gushed about her famous father during a preview clip of the special, saying, "He's the most amazing person I know. I couldn't ask for a better dad. He taught me how to ride a bike and be the tomboy that I am."

Part One of the E! special aired Sunday, May 17, at 9:00 p.m.

Part Two follows tonight Monday, May 18, at 9:00 p.m.

James Edstrom And Jerry Springer

Throughout an illustrious career, Jerry Springer has become a cultural and civic icon. In addition to hosting The Jerry Springer Show, going into its 25th season, he has been the mayor of Cincinnati, political pundit, lawyer, Emmy award-winning newscaster, game show host, country recording artist, international emcee, TV personality and author. He has been in movies and on Broadway, he's a progressive talk-radio broadcaster and Springer won America's heart with his ballroom dancing. Springer now adds Podcast Host to his long line of accomplishments.

The Jerry Springer Podcast; Tales, Tunes and Tomfoolery, is an eclectic mix of stories, interviews, conversations and comedy bits. Each 30 minute podcast concludes with original music performed by local musicians. The podcast is recorded in front of a small studio audience at the Folk School Coffee Parlor in Ludlow, Kentucky. 

Springer shares the mic with his friend of 45 years, Jene Galvin. The two met during Springer’s political years in the early 1970’s in Cincinnati and have shared a brotherly bond ever since. Bringing the female perspective is Megan Hils. Both Hils and Galvin worked on Springer’s Air America radio broadcast for its two year run. Back together the three fell into a rhythm of talking about topics ranging from politics, current event and tough social/political discussion to radio-comedy skits, interviews, music and lots of humor.

Springer is excited about the opportunity to talk openly about all these topics saying, “I’m excited to be a part of my first-ever podcast with my friends Jene and Megan. I’m also excited to eventually learn what a podcast is.”

Among the conversations on the podcast is with a Freedom Rider who spent 42 days in a Mississippi prison in 1961 singing songs to pass the trying hours, a discussion of whether teachers should be armed to protect their kids from violent attacks, and celebrity parodies of Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter are among the unpredictable possibilities.

Story By:James Edstrom

Joe Franklin And Producer Steve Garrin

New York City Legend Joe Franklin has taken his final "Walk Down Memory Lane".

New York City legend Joe Franklin, was the pioneering Radio and TV personality nicknamed King of Nostalgia and credited with creating the modern-day talk show, died Saturday. The star was 88.

I am going to miss Joe. I grew up watching him on late night television on WOR. Very early in my career, he would show up to my parties at Limelight, Roxy, Webster Hall and so many other NYC hotspots. Joe loved to go out. One minute he would be at some fancy high class event, then a hour later he would be at a dingy club, and no matter where the event was, Joe was there to talk. That's what Joe did, he talked.

For some reason, Joe never remembered my name. He knew my face right away, would come over and kiss me, but he always forgot my name.  We were neighbors for years in Times Square. His office was 200 feet away from me across the street. I would run into him almost every day and it was always "what was your name again, you got a card?". It was funny. Don't know if he did it to keep me on my toes, but every time this was the first conversation we had. Then we would chat away.

When I would call Joe at his west 43rd street offices to invite him to a party, he would say, "Oh Yeah, I have a bunch of your cards. It's was funny and we went through this for years. You never knew where Joe would show up next. I went to Hooters parties and there was Joe. I would show up to photograph Marilyn Monroe's dress and shoes for Pat Cooper and there was Joe. Lunch with Cindy Adams, parties at the Friers Club and late night nightclubs, there was Joe Franklin, talking away, because this is what Joe loved and did. He loved people. He loved talk.

In the old days when all the legends hung out at Sardi's Restaurant on 44th street, Joe would walk in and chat with everyone in the front bar. I was usually there with Joyce Randolph and her husband Dick Charles. Joyce played Trixie on the Honeymooners television show. Joe loved Joyce. Funny thing, in all my years, I never saw Joe have a drop of alcohol.

I loved having Joe as a neighbor. Our many conversations on the street were classic. His memories of the old days of television made me wish to go back to the old days. I love the story on how some photographer from my building asked Joe if he could photograph him in his office. Joe thought he was doing the guy a favor, then the guy sent him a bill. Joe was like, " This guy is crazy."

Joe Franklin friend and producer Steve Garrin said, " With Joe's passing, it's the end of a era." Late night talk show queen Robyn Byrd said on her facebook Page, "RIP Joe Franklin... Sweet man, I was on his show a few times. He said I changed the look of television."

Rest in peace Joe Franklin, enjoy your trip down memory lane with all your old friends in the sky.
