Noir Twitter Cancels French Actress For Saying Jill Scott Looks Like Her Dog

Jill Scott slander is not allowed anywhere, not even on French television.

French actress Alice Belaidi needs to get her eyes checked. That or her attitude. She appeared on French television show The Toutou Matou Show with her French Bulldog. While talking about how cute she thought the dog was, she revealed that she named her “Jill.” The reason why is what has some people upset.

She says she named the dog after her favorite singer Jill Scott because she feels they have the same nose.

If that wasn’t insulting enough, the show’s producers put photos of the dog and singer side-by-side for a comparison. The mostly White audience got a kick out of this. The host, who was laughing too, tried to convince Belaidi that this was a poor comparison, saying that Scott was “prettier” than the dog. But Belaidi insisted the resemblance was there.

French Black twitter was not having it.

Carrie Fisher: Star Wars Actress Suffers Massive Heart Attack

Carrie Fisher, the legendary actress best known for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars films, is unfortunately in a bad way.

Carrie was on a flight from London to Los Angeles earlier today when she suffered a massive heart attack.

The heart attack happened just 15 minutes before the plane landed, and luckily a doctor, nurses, and an EMT were on board to administer CPR until she could be taken to a nearby hospital.

According to TMZ, the United Airlines flight she was on reported her condition upon landing as “unresponsive.”

After landing, paramedics reportedly had to tend to her for around 15 minutes before they could even get a pulse.

Actress Anna Akana tweeted that she was sitting near Carrie on the flight, and she also included some seriously concerning details.

“Don’t know how else to process this,” she wrote, “but Carrie Fisher stopped breathing on the flight home. Hope she’s gonna be OK.”

“So many thanks to the United flight crew who jumped into action, and the awesome doctor and nurse passengers who helped.”

She added “Feel weird even tweeting about it but I JUST finished her book and was fangirling out over seeing her dog Gary in person. Gah.” 

A comedian named Brad Gage was with Anna, and he tweeted “I’m in complete shock.”

“@AnnaAkana and I sat in front of Carrie Fisher on our flight from London and she was just taken off the plane by EMTs.”

“I don’t know what happened,” he wrote. “Not really sure what to do right now but I hope she is ok. I hope she is ok.”

Another witness says “It was scary. There was a team of about six emergency workers pushing her out in a stretcher.”

“She had an oxygen mask on and they were yelling at people to get out of the way as they pushed her through.”

Other witnesses stated that as EMTs rushed Carrie through the terminal at LAX, her eyes were shut and she seemed to be unconscious.

Right now, she’s in the hospital, reportedly in critical condition and on a ventilator.

Carrie is only 60 years old. Best wishes that she can pull through this.

Lucy Hale Topless Photos Leak; Actress Responds in Anger

Like so many others, Lucy Hale has now been given a reason to hate hard on 2016.

Not because of who the country just elected President.

And not because of all the celebrity deaths that have left Hollywood shaken over the past several months.

But because Hale recently became the latest woman to have her privacy violated on the Internet.

A morally-questionable celebrity gossip website, Celeb Jihad, shared photos online of the Pretty Little Liars star without a shirt on.

For whom were these topless images intended? That question isn’t important.

What’s important is that someone stole them from Hale and released them for public viewing.

According to TMZ , Hale’s attorney, Marty Singer, sent an angry letter to the website demanding that the pictures be removed… or a lawsuit would be filed.

There were a total of two racy photos obtained and leaked by the site, both of which depicted Hale’s breasts and nipples, including a tattoo on one of the actress’ boobs.

They were meant for a friend and some moron hacked into Hale’s phone to illegally acquire them.

To her credit, Hale has responded to this incident with both pride and venom.

She’s pissed off, but she isn’t ashamed.

“Once again, a woman in the public eye was violated, stolen from and her private life and body were exposed for anyone to see,” Hale wrote in response on Thursday, expounding as follows:

“I will not apologize for living my life and having a personal life that is all mine. It’s truly unfortunate that being exposed in this way is allowed.”

The 27-year-old actress went on to thank fans for their support, concluding with a pointed message at “whoever” is responsible for the photo leak.

“Thank you for all the sweet, supportive messages I’ve been receiving.

“It was a much needed reminder that I’m surrounded by so much love. I appreciate you all very much. And to whoever did this…kiss my ass.”

HA! We love it!

You tell ’em, Lucy!

Over the past couple years, stars such as Scarlett Johansson, Gabrielle Union, Kate Upton, and Leslie Jones have seen their privacy violated in this same disgusting manner.

Just a few weeks, Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams was forced to address her own nude photo leak.

It’s really a huge shame, isn’t it?

People can really suck a lot, can’t they?

Fortunately, young actresses such as Hale and Williams are here to remind us that people can also be resilient and strong in the face of stupid, horny, mean-spirited hackers.

Hale and her Pretty Little Liars colleagues, meanwhile, will start to say goodbye on April 18, 2017.

On that date, the series returns to kick off its final run of episodes. Ever.

We’re sad to see it go, but we’re happy to think that Hale will stick around for many years afterward.

She’s a young, talented, strong and pretty actress. And she can sing! We’re big fans.

Here’s a look at the cast saying farewell to fans, not long after Freeform confirmed that Season 7 will be the show’s final season:

Zsa Zsa Gabor Dies; Beloved Actress Was 99 Years Old

Zsa Zsa Gabor, a Hungarian actress and socialite who some might consider to have been the original Kim Kardashian, died on Sunday afternoon of a heart attack.

She was 99 years old.

“They tried to save her,” her husband, Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, told NBC News of his wife’s demise, adding:

“She was still breathing when they got here, but we ended up losing her. I am grateful that she died with no pain.”

Gabor, who was set to turn 100 years old in February, had suffered through a number of physical ailments and health problems over the past few years.

This is understandable, of course, considering her advanced age.

In 2011, for example, Gabor had to have her right leg partially amputated due to an infection.

Her husband continued to hold birthday parties for Gabor over the past decade, but the long-time star was so sick that visitors were not permitted in her bedroom.

Zsa Zsa Gabor and her younger sister, Eva Gabor, were socialites in Beverly Hills for several years back in the day.

The late actress appeared in over 80 television shows and movies combined, often portraying herself toward the latter stages of her career.

She was married to Conrad Hilton, Paris Hilton’s, grandfather, from 1942-1947.

Overall, Gabor was married an astonishing nine times.

As time progressed and the comparison to social media stars of this generation increased, those close to Gabor grew irate.

They pointed to her long and respected film career as evidence that she earned her fame and wealth via hard work and talent, which is more than many can say about Hilton, Kardashian and others.

“I hate it when there’s been comparisons [of] when the Gabors were at their peak – quoted everywhere and in photos with kings and queens and international playboys – and then there’s comparisons to the Kardashians,” Zsa Zsa’s publicist, Edward Lozzi, told NBC after his client’s passing.

He added that these comparisons make him “sick.”

Gabor

Gabor was born in Budapest.. studied at a Swiss boarding school… was crowned Miss Hungary in 1936 … and sang and acted in Europe in the 1930s before arriving in Hollywood.

She portrayed singer Jane Avril, in 1952’s Moulin Rouge, which was nominated for seven Academy Awards.

Over the final years of her life, the aforementioned health problems prompted Gabor to retreat from the spotlight; whether it was a severe car accident in 2002, a stroke in 2005 or a broken hip in 2010.

But she remained well known up until her final breath.

We send our condolences to the friends, family members and loved ones of Zsa Zsa Gabor.

Margaret Whitton Dies; Major League Actress Was 67

Margaret Whitton, a veteran actress and producer best known for playing the main antagonist in the beloved comedy Major League, died on Sunday in Palm Beach, Florida.

She was 67 years old.

Whitton’s producing partner, Steven Tabakin, confirmed the sad news to Entertainment Weekly.

“Because Margaret kept her brief battle with cancer very private, the news of her death is one of those unexpected twists and turns in the story,” he said in a statement to the publication, adding:

“As you might imagine, Margaret faced her illness with all the grace and wit she brought to every facet of her life.”

The actress was a Philadelphia native who was born on November 30, 1949.

She kicked off her acting career on stage, appearing in 1973 in an off-Broadway production of Baby Goya, which also featured acting great Olympia Dukakis.

After that, Whitton made her Broadway debt in 1982 with Nell Dunn’s Olivier Award-winning comedy Steaming.

But it was Whitton’s role in the 1989 classic Major League that left a lasting imprint on entertainment fans.

She portrayed in the film, an ex-showgirl who inherited the Cleveland Indians and attempted to run the team into the ground in order to force a move to Miami.

Once the team learns of her dastardly plot, players grow inspired to win as often as they can to spite her.

Whitton played a key role in the original movie and again in the 1994 sequel, in which Phelps sought revenge.

Other films on Whitton’s resume included in 9 1/2 Weeks (1986); The Man Without a Face (1993); The Secret of My Success (1987); and Ironweed (1987).

On the television side of things, she starred in Hometown, A Fine Romance, and Good & Evil.

“No one could deliver a one-liner like Margaret,” wrote Tabakin to EW. “No one could be more scathing one minute and more vulnerable the next – she played all the notes. Girls wanna be her.”

Following her acting career, Whitton became president and executive producer of Tashtego Films, serving as a producer and developer.

She is survived by her husband of 23 years, Warren Spector.

“We don’t dare mourn Margaret because she would have a wicked one-liner to snap us back to the curves, the twists, the turns, the joy. Those incredible eyes, that delicious laugh,” Tabakin wrote, concluding:

“But we will remember her always, and how she made the world – and those of us lucky enough to share it with her for a while – just a little bit better.”

We send our condolences to her loved ones.

Lisa Lynn Masters, Veteran Character Actress, Dead of Apparent Suicide

Tragic news this week out of Hollywood:

Lisa Lynn Masters, a veteran actress who appeared on such shows as Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Gossip Girl, was found dead inside her hotel room in Peru.

She was 52 years old.

According to local news reports, Masters had been in the country for a modeling shoot.

Her body was discovered in a closet and it is believed she hanged herself with her skirt.

Officials are on record as saying Masters had been struggling with depression and that they found anti-depressants in her hotel room.

Along with the aforementioned hits programs, Masters also appeared on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Ugly Betty.

In a statement, a representative for Masters said the following:

“As to her husband and family’s wishes, we hope the industry can mourn her death without details.

“In these darkening days, we hope those who have had the pleasure of knowing her will see how brightly she shined and will find that light within themselves and continue to share it with others – just as she would have.”

Friends and family members have set up a GoFundMe page in Masters’ name; it has already surpassed its goal of raising $ 30,000 in funeral expenses by Thursday.

“Our dear friend Lisa Masters passed away tragically and unexpectedly in Lima, Peru on November 15, 2016,” Ani Mason, who set up the account on behalf of Master’s husband, William Brooks, wrote on the page.

The accounts continues:

“Lisa’s genuine warmth, generosity and tenacious strength will be deeply missed.

“Lisa’s beloved husband William is shocked and grieving her sudden loss.

“In the midst of his mourning, William faces daunting financial challenges, including the substantial funeral and transport expenses for Lisa in and between Peru and the United States.

“William is a healing arts practitioner and a long-time Brooklyn resident. Lisa and William lived modestly and both contributed to the expenses of their household.

“Without Lisa’s income, William faces an immediate challenge to covering the rent on his apartment among other things…

“Any donation you can make to ease this difficult time would be so appreciated and would make a big difference.

“Our hearts go out to our dear friend William. We will miss Lisa very, very much”

Born in Omaha, Masters resided in Brooklyn, New York, and broke into acting after working as a TV news reporter and a model.

We send our thoughts to her friends, family members and loved ones.
