BBC Flawlessly Responds To The Sexist Snowflakes Upset Over Doctor Who"s First Woman Time Lord!

Keep weeping, snowflakes — the BBC don't give a fuck! On Sunday, it was revealed that Jodie Whittaker would play the first female Time Lord in the hit series Doctor Who, and most fans were jumping for joy.

On Sunday, it was revealed that Jodie Whittaker would play the first female Time Lord in the hit series Doctor Who, and most fans were jumping for joy. Of course, a few less-evolved fans were upset over a woman (gasp!) playing the 13th Doctor and criticized the network for ruining the sanctity of the sci-fi show. Such complaints questioned how a time traveling alien with otherworldly, regenerative abilities could possibly go from Peter Capaldi to the Broadchurch actress. QUIZ: How Long Would YOU Survive Game Of Thrones? Time-bending, sure. Age-bending, no problem-o. But GENDER-bending? How can one possibly wrap their heads around such a perplexing, doctor-ruining character trait like that? Thankfully, BBC issued a response to the haters, delicately explaining it has long been established in the show that Time Lords are able to switch gender -- and those who aren't on board can sit on a sonic screwdriver! The BBC Complaints page stated how "viewers contacted us unhappy that Jodie Whittaker has been cast as the new Doctor," before responding: "Since the first Doctor regenerated back in 1966, the concept of the Doctor as a constantly evolving being has been central to the programme. The continual input of fresh ideas and new voices across the cast and the writing and production teams has been key to the longevity of the series. The Doctor is an alien from the planet Gallifrey and it has been established in the show that Time Lords can switch gender. As the Controller of BBC Drama has said, Jodie is not just a talented actor but she has a bold and brilliant vision for her Doctor. She aced it in her audition both technically and with the powerful female life force she brings to the role. She is destined to be an utterly iconic Doctor. We hope viewers will enjoy what we have in store for the continuation of the story." Translation: go fly a Tardis and time-warp the fuck over it! Whittaker will make her debut after Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffatt's departure following the Christmas special -- and WE. CANNOT. WAIT! [Image via BBC.].....»»

Tom Welling Explains Why He Never Wore Superman Suit in "Smallville"

Tom Welling played a young Clark Kent in the hit series Smallville, but something you never got to see throughout the series was him suiting up as Superman.

At the end of the series finale, Tom ripped opened his button-down shirt and you saw the Superman logo on the suit, but he was shown from a distance while flying away. Years later, Tom is finally opening up about the decision to not show Clark in action as Superman. “It was something that we discussed before we ever shot the pilot with [creators] Al [Gough] and Miles [Millar],” Tom said in an interview with EW. “We literally had a sit down where we talked about the show and I asked about the suit and the tights and the flying, and they said, ‘No, absolutely not,’ part of the reason being is that show is about a teenager trying to figure out who he is. They felt that once Clark put on the cape and the suit, life became too easy, in a sense. They wanted to focus on who this character was before that. And, at the time, because of where visual effects and special effects and stunts were, it would be too expensive. That’s mainly why they save that for movies, more or less.” Tom explained that there was an idea to have Clark put on the suit in the beginning of the episode and save Lois Lane on a plane, but that idea was shot down. “We jumped onto this idea that at the end of the show, the idea is that Clark becomes Superman and he’s out there, and we know he’s out there, but we can’t go with him, but that we know and we feel good that he’s out there doing good,” Tom said. “That was what we strove for, and I think we hit it. I liked the ending of the series, because it’s like, ‘Yes, he did it!’ I hope the audience didn’t feel like we didn’t show them something that they needed to see. I felt like we gave them the jumping off point for their imagination as to what could happen.” Next up for Tom is a recurring role on the Fox series Lucifer!.....»»

Luann de Lesseps Reportedly Decided To Divorce Tom D"Agostino After She Learned He Cheated On Her Not Once, But TWICE!

As you surely saw on Thursday, Luann de Lesseps took to Twitter to announce that she and Tom D'Agostino are divorcing. While it's been reported that the businessman "couldn't handle the reality TV lifestyle," it's also been said that the Countess was D-O-N-E with Tom's cheating ways. *GASP* Related: RHONY Cameras Missed Out On Luann & Tom's Divorce Drama! We knew Mr. and Mrs. D'Agostino's marriage was in trouble after the Real Housewives of New York star was spotted slapping the 50-year-old earlier this summer. Not to mention, the Bravolebrity's man DID cheat on her the night before their engagement party. Yuck. Apparently, Luann decided to call it quits on her marriage after she learned her husband of just seven months cheated on her not once, but twice. Friends of the RHONY vet claim she started suspecting Tom's infidelity after Ramona Singer showed her a pic of D'Agostino kissing another woman. After an investigation into the matter, Luann reportedly confronted her man while dinning at Le Bilboquet restaurant in Manhattan. This conversation prompted the slap reported 'round the world. To make matters worse, Tom is also accused of having met up with an ex-girlfriend during the twosome's vacation in the Hamptons. That explains why de Lesseps attended Jill Zarin's luncheon solo! Related: RHONY Costars React To The Divorce News! On Tom's infidelity, a Luann confidant dished to DailyMail.com: "He cheated on her twice and she found out about it. It's just a matter of him not being able to be faithful. He has been a bachelor his entire life so it was really hard for him to conform to married life. It's just crazy – he was never able to be faithful and that's the bottom line." We feel so badly for Luann. A second insider added: "He did cheat on her twice. He wasn't giving up his bachelor life which she really didn't sign up for." Yikes. Nonetheless, a source from D'Agostino's camp is denying the cheating rumors as they clapped back with: "That's not true. That's not the conversation Tom and Luann had about why their marriage ended. That is not at all why the marriage ended. I don't even know that he did cheat on her. There was the kiss before the engagement party but that was it." Huh. It'll certainly be inneresting to see how this entire thing plays out in divorce court. So... stay tuned!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Luann de Lesseps Tries To Distract From Her Slapping Drama By Bragging About The "Makeup Sex" She & Tom D"Agostino Are Having!

Luann de Lesseps isn't worried about her marriage one bit! As we previously shared, the Countess and her husband, Tom D'Agostino, made headlines earlier this week after it was reported that the Real Housewives Of New York star slapped her man during an argument at Le Bilboquet restaurant in Manhattan. Yikes! Related: RHOC Star Vicki Gunvalson Apologizes [...] Luann de Lesseps isn't worried about her marriage one bit! As we previously shared, the Countess and her husband, Tom D'Agostino, made headlines earlier this week after it was reported that the Real Housewives Of New York star slapped her man during an argument at Le Bilboquet restaurant in Manhattan. Yikes! Related: RHOC Star Vicki Gunvalson Apologizes To Shannon Beador Nonetheless, the Bravolebrity is moving quickly to downplay the drama as she's since opened up about the spat to several publications. During a chat with E! News, the mother-of-two explained: "What couple doesn't have lovers' quarrels? Tom and I are very passionate and very much in love with each other and things happen. Unfortunately we are very much public people and so everybody likes to talk about it. From the Housewives to the restaurant, it's very hard to keep privacy." Look at that spin. Well played, girl. On the alleged slap, de Lesseps quipped: "It was more of a tap then a slap. It was a lovers' quarrel. I think all couples go through these things." Do they though?? We're not sure about that. Nonetheless, Luann wants fans to know that she did NOT hit her husband as she later told People: "I did not slap him in the face. End of story. It was like a face hold more than a slap, really. It was a little love pat — it wasn't a slap. A slap is something totally different. People magnify that because they want to make their story richer. People like to exaggerate." A "love pat"? Seriously? Why not just say it was a gentle caress, only done extremely fast, and hard, and in anger? Speaking of the drama surrounding this story, it seems the RHONY vet is more than exhausted with the peanut gallery weighing in on her love life. She continued with E! News: "It was made to be a much bigger deal. People like to gossip, people like to talk. That can weigh heavily on a relationship. Tom and I have been through a lot, but we love each other. We aren't going to let gossip or rumors get the best of us." And they really aren't, as the 52-year-old went on to brag about all of the "makeup sex" she and Tom are having. We're sure her children LOVE reading this. LOLz! Related: Kim Zolciak Has A HUGE New Tattoo! Luann added: "Tom and I have a very passionate love affair going and that's why we got married. We love each other. And we're working through problems... A good healthy argument makes for good makeup sex. And we are having a lot of makeup sex." Passionate sex aside, the newlyweds are also taking a weekend trip to Newport in order to reconnect and enjoy some alone time. And for good measure, the Countess reiterated one last time: "Tom and I are good. We love each other and you work through things. That's what couples do—so everything is fine and we are happy." Who are you trying to convince, doll??? WE TEASE. Hopefully, this is the last bit of drama the love birds face -- but, we doubt it will be. [Image via WENN.].....»»

The 35-yer-old actress described the incident to host Jimmy as a “not” car accident where she “kissed” a van with her car trying to park for an audition. “If I had thought I had hit it, I would’ve said something. I heard some honking and suddenly a lady busted out and was already yelling at me. I was like, ‘I’m uncomfortable,’ I’m uncomfortable because I don’t like to be yelled at,” Jenny expressed. “But I was like, ‘why is this worse then when I usually feel bad about being yelled at?’ This lady wasn’t wearing any pants. No slacks at all, she came out of that van with a shirt and that was all. So I was like no pants, we’re not going to connect. She said, ‘you hit my car because you’re a snitch for the police.’” Jenny also promoted her upcoming film Landline, which hits select theaters on Friday (July 21) – Watch the full interview below!
