Based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling series of novels, BRIDGERTON, is set in the sexy, lavish and competitive world of Regency London high society.  From the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair to the aristocratic palaces of Park Lane and beyond, the series unveils a seductive, sumptuous world replete with intricate rules and dramatic power struggles, where no one is truly ever on steady ground.  At the heart of the show is the powerful Bridgerton family. Comprised of eight close-knit siblings, this funny, witty, daring and clever group must navigate the upper ten thousand’s marriage mart in search of romance, adventure and love.

QUOTE FROM CREATOR CHRIS VAN DUSEN:

“We could not have found a more gifted group of actors to bring Bridgerton to life.  When creating this series, the goal was to turn a very traditional genre on its head and make something fresh, smart, sexy and fun. That’s exactly what this cast embodies and I’m ridiculously excited to see them inhabit these characters and captivate viewers in their own incredibly brilliant ways.”

CAST:

 Phoebe Dynevor bridgerton

PHOEBE DYNEVOR (Younger, Dickensian) will play “DAPHNE BRIDGERTON.”

The picture-perfect young debutante has been waiting her entire life to make her grand debut on the marriage mart.  Poised to be the season of 1813’s forthcoming Incomparable, Daphne’s set to take the town by storm – but not everything goes exactly as planned for this diamond of the first water, especially after she meets a certain Duke.

Rege-Jean Page bridgerton

REGÉ-JEAN PAGE (For The People, Roots) will play “SIMON BASSET.”

Having newly returned to London, the Duke of Hastings finds himself the primary topic of conversation amongst marriage-minded misses and ambitious mamas alike.  Yet, for reasons of his own, our devastating Duke has zero interest in his title, society, or taking a wife.

Golda Rosheuvel bridgerton

GOLDA ROSHEUVEL (Silent Witness, Lady MacBeth) will play “QUEEN CHARLOTTE.”

The veritable tastemaker of London society, Queen Charlotte finds herself living for the sordid gossip that Lady Whistledown prints, though she’d swear she’s above such mundane musings.  It’s only when the ton’s newest gossip writer takes aim at the palace that Queen Charlotte knows she must do something about it.

Jonathan Bailey (by Leigh Kelly) bridgerton

JONATHAN BAILEY (W1A, Broadchurch) will play “ANTHONY BRIDGERTON.”

The quintessential English nobleman, Anthony is the eldest Bridgerton sibling and dutiful head of the family since assuming his late father’s title of Viscount.  Endlessly handsome, charming and rich, he’s quite the catch on this year’s marriage mart. But if he has any hope of fulfilling his oftentimes overwhelming duty of marrying and producing an heir, Anthony must first learn to temper his pursuit of pleasure.

Luke Newton bridgerton

LUKE NEWTON (The Lodge, The Cut) will play “COLIN BRIDGERTON.”

The dashing Colin Bridgerton is used to disarming his fellow society members with good-natured jokes, though a serious sense of adventure lurks behind those swoon-worthy eyes.  Colin takes a liking to the newest young lady in town — but it’s this infatuation that winds up giving him more than he may have bargained for.

Claudia Jessie bridgerton

CLAUDIA JESSIE (Vanity Fair, Doctor Who) will play “ELOISE BRIDGERTON.”

Whip-smart, brazen and rebellious, Eloise Bridgerton is definitely not here for turning into just another young simpering and mincing debutante.  She believes she’s destined for something much greater, though she’s quite rapidly approaching marriageable age.

Nicola Coughlan bridgerton

NICOLA COUGHLAN (Derry Girls, Harlots) will play “PENELOPE FEATHERINGTON.”

A vastly intelligent girl with a sharp wit and kind heart, Penelope would prefer to quietly sway near the perimeter of any ballroom rather than take center stage.  She’s been born into a family who will never truly understand her–as if dealing with the cutthroat, mean girls of 1813 Regency London weren’t enough.

Ruby Barker bridgerton

RUBY BARKER (Wolfblood, Doctors) will play “MARINA THOMPSON.”

Having been sent from the country to live with her cousins, the Featheringtons, Marina never imagined being a part of London society.  Yet the arrival of this resourceful young lady seems to make more than just a splash in our glittering, exclusive world.

Sabrina Bartlett bridgerton

SABRINA BARTLETT (Victoria, Knightfall) will play “SIENA ROSSO.”

The beautiful, captivating, and enterprising opera singer who’s having a secret affair with a prominent lord.  Fun and a bit impetuous, Siena secretly longs to be a part of our town’s world.

Ruth Gemmell bridgerton

RUTH GEMMELL  (Deep State, Penny Dreadful) will play “LADY VIOLET BRIDGERTON.”

All warmth, wisdom and love, the Bridgerton matriarch manages to treat everyone with unmatched kindness and respect.  But don’t mistake her compassion for weakness – as she’s an impressive match for anyone who dares comes close to interfering with her family.  She’d like nothing more than for her children to marry – not for convenience or opportunity, but for love.

adjoah andoh bridgerton

ADJOA ANDOH (Thunderbirds Are A Go) will play “LADY DANBURY.”

The legendary, acerbic, lioness of a dowager who runs this town.  Unconcerned with the rules of polite society, Lady Danbury is a straight shooter – both formidable and a little scary.  And while her judgments may be sharp, they’re always accurate. She is a friend of Simon’s late mother, having shown the now Duke a rare kindness when he was a child.

Polly Walker (by Ruth Crafer) bridgerton

POLLY WALKER (Pennyworth, Age Before Beauty) will play “LADY PORTIA FEATHERINGTON.”

Perhaps the most ambitious mama of all, Lady Featherington is determined to make advantageous matches for each of her daughters – and is forever pushing them on some rather disinterested parties.  Cunning and ruthless, Lady Featherington hustles to get what she wants, no matter the cost.

PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED:

Julie Andrews bridgerton

JULIE ANDREWS will play the voice of “LADY WHISTLEDOWN.”

Anonymous to readers, this mysterious, sharp-tongued gossip writer uses a curious mix of social commentary and scathing insult to send the season of 1813’s ton into an all-out frenzy.

We know this series is going to be amazing. Netflix and Shondaland are amazing separately, but together they are a true movement. British aristocracy and royalty have always been a source of interest, intrigue, and amazement; and now we are getting a new show that looks juicy! We will keep you posted as more news on this upcoming series becomes available!

The night started off all wrong when NeNe Leakes allegedly ‘came in with her bare breasts exposed,’ causing speculation as to whether or not she was under the influence. The photo above was taken by an onlooker — and it’s easy to see how NeNe’s girls could’ve made a guest appearance.

If you recall, NeNe JUST resumed filming with the rest of the ladies last month after her weeks-long suspension.

“No one cared that she was there and she got zero reaction from any of the ladies — including Marlo and Yovanna (who’s around as an ‘unofficial friend).’”

According to our sources, Yovanna and Porsha went at it as well as Kenya and NeNe.

“Yovanna is a snake. No one really likes her and it’s clear she’s only around to be the villain,” said the source.

All we can say is this is a bit much. We are not sure what could make all of them get to a point where they are ready to fight in a restaurant, but we are not surprised. Kenya and Nene are practically mortal enemies at this point; and Porsha and Yovanna (As you recall last season she stated she was “that bitch” at Clark Atlanta University in her heyday) are hot heads. Last season was rather lackluster so it seems the ladies are making up for their less than stellar peformance in 2018. Kenya, welcome back!

Aqualad coming out gay

News of Kaldur’ahm’s sexuality should not come as a surprise. In the canon of DC Comics he is also gay, with his sexuality being revealed a couple of years ago. Kaldur’ahm is not the only LGBT character seen in the series as the female vigilante, Bluebird, has expressed interest in Halo, a biologically female superhero who identifies as non-binary. The series seems to reflecting in the growing acceptance and understanding of gender and sexual fluidity.

Having a Black Gay Male superhero on a series of the magnitude, albeit, animated, is still a step in the right direction. It challenges stereotypes and serves as a powerful reminder that heroes comes in all shapes, sizes, races, and sexual preferences!  #PRIDE!

Oh No! The Wendy Williams Show May End After Upcoming 11th Season! Jerry O’Connell Show May Replace IT!

We are really hoping this turns out to be “fake news” as Donald Trump infamously–and erroneously–likes to claim, but the rumor mill is turning and reporting that the Wendy Williams Show may be ending after its upcoming eleventh season! Back in December rumors that the show was on the chopping block circulated due to Wendy’s health,  personal struggles, and marital issues. Now, it seems, that her time away did more to harm the show than good. Sources close to the show are reporting that talk show hosted by actor, and one of Wendy’s stand-in host, Jerry O’Connell may take her slot.

wendy williams show canceled

“This was an extremely difficult season to get through for the staff and Wendy herself, obviously. With the show’s renewal set to end after the 2019-2020 season, everyone thinks it’s the perfect time to say goodbye move on. Wendy has enough going on as it is and honestly no one, including Wendy, is sure she can even make it through season 11. Not to mention, advertisers consider her to be a ‘risk’ due to her unplanned hiatuses and extended breaks. It’s very likely the show won’t be back.”
