The original series ran for five seasons and followed five queer men known as the Fab Five. The original Fab Five — Ted Allen (Food and Wine Connoisseur), Kyan Douglas (“Grooming Guru”), Thom Filicia (“Design Doctor”), Carson Kressley (“Fashion Savant”) and Jai Rodriguez (“Culture Vulture”) — lent their individual expertise to lucky subjects (usually straight men) in order to help them improve their lives.

Unfortunately, Benjen Stark doesn’t make an appearance in the film. However, there are a total of seven Game of Thrones actors in The Force Awakens.
Jane the Virgin star Justin Baldoni has revealed he was sexually harassed by a Hollywood producer when he was a new actor in the industry, describing the incident as part of a system “broken” by sexual misconduct.
The actor told the magazine that when he was around 21 he was propositioned by a man in a hot tub who told him he was an influential and well-connected Hollywood producer.
“He slowly started to try to get me to take off my pants because I had my bathing suit on and he was naked,” Baldoni said.
“And I remember the way he did it, using his power and what he does and who he knows as a way to make me feel less than,” Baldoni said. “Like I wasn’t going to be as successful as the other guys who’d been in the same hot tub with him, naked.”
The actor said he contemplated what to do for a “split second” before leaving.
“I could imagine how hard and painful that must be for a woman,” he said. I mean I was stronger and bigger than the guy, and [then there’s] the fact that no one is going to believe you if you’re a woman because your voice is already not heard.”
A number of people have come forward with stories about sexual harassment, misconduct, and assault in the entertainment industry since the allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein were published in the New York Times and the New Yorker in October. The #MeToo movement has inspired many women to speak up about their experiences, but Baldoni is one of the few men who have opened up about the subject matter. On Oct. 10, Terry Crews tweeted about a Hollywood agent groping him at an event last year, and on Oct. 29, Anthony Rapp told BuzzFeed News that Kevin Spacey made a sexual advance toward him when he was 14 years old and Spacey was 26.
Baldoni also said he has experienced sexual harassment from women in powerful positions.
“I’ve had my ass grabbed multiple times by powerful women,” he said.
Baldoni is currently developing an online talk show, Man Enough, which he said addresses “what it means to be a man today.”
He is also calling on other men to acknowledge past poor behavior and apologize to those who they’ve wronged.
“I think that’s when the other side of the ‘Me Too’ movement is ‘I’m Sorry,’” Baldoni said. “I guarantee at some point in my life there is a woman or two that I in some way made uncomfortable by saying something or doing something that was chauvinistic or sexist. There is 1 million percent probability that that exists, and all I can do is say, ‘I’m sorry, I was naive, I was young, I screwed up, and I’ll try to do better.’”
Georgia police on Wednesday announced they have issued arrest warrants for a former associate of R. Kelly who allegedly robbed two Atlanta houses belonging to the singer while he was on tour.
Alfonso Walker, 50, is facing charges of burglary and theft, and remains on the run. Walker used to do “odds and ends jobs” for Kelly, Captain Christopher Byers of the Johns Creek Police Department told BuzzFeed News.
Kelly’s housekeeper contacted authorities on Nov. 26 when she arrived to discover “everything was gone,” according to a police report.
Captain Byers said several valuables were taken from the home, including furniture, clothing, and television sets.
When investigators visited another of Kelly’s residences in the city, they then found it had also been burglarized.
Neighbors noticed suspicious vehicles at one of the homes over the course a week, with people moving items, but Byers said they didn’t find it alarming because the men “were doing it in broad daylight and weren’t acting like your typical burglar.”
Walker was connected to the crime after a detective went to the second of Kelly’s burglarized homes to do some follow-up work, Byers said. As he came upon the driveway, he noticed three individuals who were moving things out of the home and into a truck allegedly registered in Walker’s name.
According to Byers, the men told police that they were hired by “Doc,” a nickname for Walker, to move Kelly’s belongings because the singer was getting rid of his possessions for a move from Atlanta to Chicago, Kelly’s hometown. Since Walker had done work in the past for Kelly before, the men said they thought that everything was above board.
Byers told BuzzFeed News that Walker sold Kelly’s possessions “a room at a time.” One of the men admitted to buying one of the room’s items for $6,000.
There’s no current estimate of how much was taken from the homes because police are still waiting on that information from Kelly, but the individuals who bought items are listed as victims in the police report since they purchased them without knowing they were stolen.
WSB-TV was first to report the news.
In interviews with police, Walker allegedly said he sold the items because he felt he was “owed” money from the singer.
Walker was supposed to turn himself into police on Dec. 5, but failed to do so.
Kelly’s spokesperson said he was thankful to police for their “swift and diligent work in determining the responsible parties.”
“He would also like to thank all of his fans around the world for their love and support, as well as the community for being very cooperative,” the spokesperson said.”
A BuzzFeed News investigation in July found parents have told police that R. Kelly has allegedly been keeping young women in several of his homes against their will, including a home in Johns Creek. Kelly has denied the allegations against him.
“He doesn’t have that house anymore to my understanding,” Byers said when asked if the homes that were burglarized were where any of the women in the BuzzFeed News report lived.

Why it’s in first place: From a purely monetary standpoint, Wonder Woman set a new standard for superheroes. Since its May 2017 release, the first major solo female superhero movie in over 10 years has become the most successful live-action movie directed by a woman (director Patty Jenkins) and the highest-grossing superhero origin film in history. Its opening weekend won Jenkins the best domestic box office debut ever for a female director ($103.3M), and its second weekend in theaters only showed a 43.2% drop in box office sales (compared to the usual 59%–60% drop-off).
So what made Princess Diana of Themyscira (played by the incredible Gal Gadot) so captivating to audiences? Her bevy of strong female role models? Her unselfconscious belief in love? The way she can casually accessorize her party dress with a sword? Absolutely, all of that.
But what truly seems to set Wonder Woman apart is her earnestness. With so much superhero fare on the market, self-aware snark and meta audience nudge-nudging have slowly begun to waterlog the lexicon. It’s as if creators can feel the audience’s fatigue. But Allan Heinberg keeps the Wonder Woman script focused on Diana’s origins as an otherworldly hero who’s chosen, and entirely dedicated to, her fate. She’s a fighter, first and foremost. Diana’s not in the business of deflective quips and one-liners; she’s in the business of marching the hell across No Man’s Land and saving that village.
Wonder Woman is still a funny, light film, balanced with naturally comedic moments — Diana discovers ice cream, loses her shit when she sees a baby, and wonders how women do battle in such constrictive modern clothing — but Jenkins doesn’t shy away from letting her lead, and the audience, feel. She wisely leans into what might read as cheesy under a less deft hand. It works, well, wonderfully.
Worldwide box office earnings: $821 million
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 92%

The singer then proceeded to crack a few joke about Hammer, saying, “I’m going to win at the Academy Awards, thanks.”
She was soon interrupted when someone in the audience shouted out to Hammer, to which Fergie replied, “They love you, they really do, they really love you,” presumably a reference to Sally Fields’ iconic Oscar speech.
