Default Aubrey O’Day, alleged Trump Jr mistress, exposes Trump family in now-deleted tweets: report...

O’Day apparently watched President Donald Trump criticize Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic nominee Joe Biden. The “Wrecking Ball” singer decided to put the Trump family’s contradictions on blast.

Refinery29, a media outlet tailored to young women, obtained a screenshot of O’Day’s now-deleted tweets and reported that one post included the following message: “Since trump has now lowered this debate to trashing family.

– don jr HATES his father.

-ivanka is a lesbian on the low.

-eric f**ked miss universe on the apprentice board room table while with his now-wife. #Debates2020.”

“And while we are at it.. I have texts of don jr telling me what a little shit asshole barron is.” O’Day wrote in a second tweet.

O’Day has had close dealings with Donald Jr. years before. She appeared as a contestant on the fifth season of ABC’s The Celebrity Apprentice in 2012, in which Don Jr. played an advisor role. During the taping, the two allegedly had an affair.

Default Oh gees what a surprise.............

Famed fashion editor created 'intolerant' workplace!

Anna Wintour admits to 'mistakes along the way' in NYT report on 'intolerant' Vogue workplace.

A bombshell story in the New York Times addresses the issue of diversity at Vogue with a sharp eye cast on the woman who helms the ship: Anna Wintour. The Saturday piece, which leans on interviews with 18 unnamed sources, claims that under Wintour — who has been Vogue’s editor-in-chief since 1988 and Condé Nast’s artistic director since 2013 — the magazine “welcomed a certain type of employee — someone who is thin and white, typically from a wealthy family and educated at elite schools.”

According to Vogue, Wintour, 70, emailed her staff in early June, in the wake of the protests ignited by the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, saying, “I want to say plainly that I know Vogue has not found enough ways to elevate and give space to Black editors, writers, photographers, designers and other creators. We have made mistakes, too, publishing images or stories that have been hurtful or intolerant. I take full responsibility for those mistakes.”

Many saw the email as “calculated”, “hypocritical” or even “hollow” — an argument bolstered when Wintour was not present that month for a meeting on race and racism. But some Black employees told the Times the email was “an awkward, though heartfelt, attempt at genuine change.”

Post 5 New Netflix Series

5 New Series Coming To Netflix In December That Are Worth The Binge


Enter the world of London's high society with this period drama from Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers and creator Chris Van Dusen.


As we fight an out-of-control pandemic and face another round of lockdowns, most would concur that 2020 cannot end soon enough. The upside is that Netflix NFLX +1.3% has a slew of new movies and series to help us get through December.

This much-needed escapism is what people are looking for and streaming is at an all-time high. Netflix just announced that The Queen’s Gambit is its most popular limited scripted series ever with a record 62 million households bingeing the seven-part series its first 28 days.

It’s fun to try and guess which new shows will be the next big hit for the streaming giant, but with so many choices on what to watch, how do you pick what to binge next? Here’s a list of five new Netflix original series premiering in December that are definitely worth the binge.




Christian Serratos stars as Selena.

Selena: The Series Part 1 (December 4, Nine Episodes): Before Selena Quintanilla became known the world over as the Queen of Tejano Music, she was a young girl from Texas with big dreams and an even bigger voice. The show explores her journey from singing small gigs to becoming the most successful female Latin artist of all time. The story also includes the many years of hard work, struggle and sacrifice the Quintanilla family endured. This deep look into Selena’s life comes from executive producers Jaime Dávila, Rico Martinez, Hiromi Kamata, Suzette Quintanilla, Simran A. Singh and Moises Zamora and was created by Zamora with Don Todd (This is Us) consulting. Christian Serratos, Gabriel Chavarria, Ricardo Chavira, Noemí Gonzalez and Seidy López star.




Dr. Devi Shetty is one of four surgeons featured in the new Netflix doc series 'The Surgeon's Cut' premiering in December.

The Surgeon’s Cut: (December 9, Four Episodes): This docuseries crisscrosses the globe profiling four ground-breaking surgeons. Each has a unique visionary approach to their craft and the viewer will be privy to their work as they perform innovative operations and procedures on patients. These experts will also discuss their personal journeys into medicine and provide information on what it’s like to be a surgeon. Each individual story will shed light on the intricacies of the human body and delve into the fascinating ways in which the body is constantly being reinvented by new discoveries and techniques. The doctors vary in specialties, including fetal medicine, neurosurgery, transplant surgery and cardiology.




Tao Tsuchiya and Kento Yamazaki in 'Alice in Borderland' premiering soon on Netflix.

Alice in Borderland (December 10, Eight Episodes): This dark, suspenseful sci-fi thriller is based on the graphic novel “Imawa no Kuni no Alice” by Haro Aso and centers on Arisu, an aimless, jobless and video-game-obsessed young man, who suddenly finds himself in a strange, emptied-out dystopian parallel version of Tokyo. In this new world, he and his friends are forced to compete in a series of dangerous, sadistic games in order to survive. In this strange world, Arisu meets Usagi, a young woman who is also navigating the games alone. Together, they set out to unravel one mystery after another as they risk their lives and confront what it means to live. The series is directed by Shinsuke Sato and stars Kento Yamazaki (Kingdom, The Disastrous Life of Saiki K) and Tao Tsuchiya (Library Wars: BOOK OF MEMORIES, Mare). The series was written by Yoshiki Watabe, Yasuko Kuramitsu and Shinsuke Sato. Kaata Sakamoto executive produced alongside producer Akira Morii for production company ROBOT.



Kylie Jefferson stars as a young ballerina who is about to see the darkest sides of competition in 'Tiny Pretty Things' on Netflix.

Tiny Pretty Things (December 14, Ten Episodes): Described as Black Swan meets Pretty Little Liars, this series is set in the elite, and very dark, world of ballet. The story, based on the YA novel of the same name by Dhonielle Clayton and Sona Charaipotra, will give the viewer an inside look into the highly competitive and extremely cutthroat world of dance as Neveah (Kylie Jefferson) starts at Chicago’s prestigious Archer School of Ballet where the quest for perfection is not only a requirement, it’s also deadly. Prior to Neveah’s arrival, one of the school’s star students, Cassie Shore (Anna Maiche), fell to her death. The official story is that it was a fatal misstep but who mistakenly falls from a four-story building? The rumor is Cassie was pushed. There’s even someone the other dancers suspect did it, but no one will fess up. Michael MacLennan serves as writer, showrunner and executive producer. Also, executive producing are Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, Jordanna Fraiberg and Deborah Henderson of Insurrection Media, Gary Fleder and Gabrielle Neimand of Mojo Films and Carrie Mudd of Peacock Alley.




Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne Bridgerton in 'Bridgerton' premiering Christmas Day on Netflix.

Bridgerton (December 25, Eight Episodes): This American period drama was created by Shondaland’s Chris Van Dusen and executive produced by Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers. Based on Julia Quinn’s bestselling novels, the story is set in the competitive world of Regency London high society and follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family, as she makes her debut onto the competitive marriage market. Hoping to follow in the footsteps of her parents and find a match sparked by true love, Daphne’s prospects initially seem to be unrivaled. But as her older brother begins to rule out her potential suitors, the scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown, voiced by the one and only Julie Andrews, casts aspersions on Daphne. Enter the highly desirable and rebellious Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), committed bachelor and the catch of the season for the debutantes’ mamas. Despite proclaiming that they want nothing the other has to offer, their attraction is undeniable and sparks fly as they find themselves engaged in an increasing battle of wits while navigating society’s expectations for their future. This series has all the goods: it’s a romantic and scandalous tale that celebrates the timelessness of enduring friendships, families finding their way and the search for a love that conquers all. Golda Rosheuvel, Jonathan Bailey, Luke Newton, Claudia Jessie, Nicola Coughlan, Ruby Barker, Luke Thompson, Sabrina Bartlett, Ruth Gemmell, Adjoa Andoh, Polly Walker, Bessie Carter and Harriet Cains round out the cast.

Post Elliot Page, Star of 'Juno'

Elliot Page, Star of 'Juno' and 'The Umbrella Academy,' Comes Out as Transgender

"I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey," Page wrote in a letter Tuesday.



Elliot Page, who was previously known as Ellen, attends The IMDb Studio
Presented By Intuit QuickBooks on Sept. 7, 2019 in Toronto.



Elliot Page, who currently stars on Netflix's "The Umbrella Academy," came out as transgender and non-binary on Tuesday.

"I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey," Page, who was previously known as Ellen Page, wrote.

"I can't begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self. I've been endlessly inspired by so many in the trans community."

Page went on to write that although he feels "profoundly happy" about sharing his story, he's also scared "of the invasiveness, the hate, the 'jokes' and of the violence."


Twitter @TheElliotPage

12:10 pm, Dec 1, 2020


"To be clear, I am not trying to dampen a moment that is joyous and one that I celebrate, but I want to address the full picture. The statistics are staggering. The discrimination towards trans people is rife, insidious and cruel, resulting in horrific consequences," he wrote in the letter.

"In 2020, alone it has been reported that at least 40 transgender people have been murdered, the majority of which were Black and Latinx trans women."

The LGBTQ advocacy group Human Rights Campaign reported in October that it recorded more violent deaths of transgender or gender non-conforming people in 2020 than in any other year since it began tracking such crimes in 2013.

Page ended the letter by condemning politicians who attack the transgender community.

"Enough is enough. You aren't being 'cancelled,' you are hurting people. I am one of those people and we won't be silent in the face of your attacks," he wrote.

"I love that I am trans. And I love that I am queer. And the more I hold myself close and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart grows and the more I thrive," Page continued. "To all the trans people who deal with harassment, self-loathing, abuse and the threat of violence every day: I see you, I love you and I will do everything I can to change this world for the better."

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, also known as GLAAD, praised Page's coming out as "an inspiration to countless trans and non-binary people."

Page's wife, Emma Portner, said she was "so proud."

"Trans, queer and non-binary people are a gift to this world," Portner wrote on Instagram. "I also ask for patience & privacy but that you join me in the fervent support of trans life every single day. Elliot’s existence is a gift in and of itself. Shine on sweet E. Love you so much."

Netflix tweeted: "So proud of our superhero! WE LOVE YOU ELLIOT! Can't wait to see you return in season 3!"
