(l-r) Malcolm, April, Raquel, Keisha, and Omar

(l-r) Malcolm, April, Raquel, Keisha, and Omar

VH-1’s “Single Ladies” is back for a third season after over a year of hiatus. Everyone’s favorite Atlanta girls, Keisha, Raquel, and April are back with a new season of love, sex, and drama. Season 2 left us on cliffhangers with all the major characters. Malcolm and Kesha reunited, Raque chased down Charles to tell him she loved him, and April was left speechless when Shawn’s family confronted him about being gay, and Omar was caught in a love triangle when he unwittingly fell for two friends.

Fast forward three months (in “Single Ladies” world) and are characters are reunited at Morgan’s decadent wedding to her Arabian Prince. There, we immediately notice Keisha seems to be out of the loop on what’s been going on with her friends. It’s revealed she and Malcolm have been traveling all over the world, and she’s been communicating very little if all with her friends. Even more noticebale is the mounting tension between Kesiha and Raquel. In her absence, Raquel has made some noticebale changes to their apartment and Indulgence. Meanwhile, Raquel’s love life has hit an all time low, not only was she rejected by Charles, but her relationship with Antonio also soured and failed. April discovers Shawn’s family was lying about his sexuality just to break them apart, but opts to dissolve their relationship realizing deep down he wasn’t “The One.” With all the girls caught up in their drama and at a distance, Raquel works through her issues alone.

Meanwhile Malcolm’s family drama takes a tragic turn as his father suffers a heart attack passes away. Despite his brother (Terence) urgently trying to reach him, the news came too late as Malcom had ignored his phone calls. Keisha and the rest of the gang try to comfort the brothers, only to watch them tear each other down in a shouting match at the funeral. Raquel tries to comfort Terence to no avail.

Letoya Luckett made her debut as the series’ latest villainess, “Felicia Price.” Felicia is music’s answer to fashion’s Miranda Priestly. She’s beautiful, powerful, intimidating, and described by Omar as “evil personified.” Well evil has its sights on April and offers her a position on her label if she can steal a new hot rapper that has piqued her interest. April reluctantly pursues the deal, but cowers when she realizes she’ll have to resort to being underhanded to attain her quarry. She opts to return to Felicia empty handed with a soapbox speech of how she refuses to compromise her integrity until she overhears the latter on the phone already underestimating her abilities. Angry, she secures a deal with the rapper’s manager under the table. This pleases Felicia so much that she offers April a position immediately.

Raquel’s life hits a new low when Eve cancels her investment in Indulgence, leaving Raquel frantic and clueless as to how she will save her business and herself from financial ruin. Keisha, surprisingly, finally admits she hasn’t been the best friend she could be lately and confides in Raquel that she is ready to settle down–although she is not sure Malcolm is, or wants to in Atlanta. After stressfully planning his father’s funeral and multiple run-ins with his brother Malcolm finds himself in sync with Keisha, weary of traveling and ready to settle down as well. Unfortunately he won’t be doing any “settling” anytime soon. His father’s will places Terance as an equal partner in the family business and an unknown woman, claiming to be his father’s wife surfaces challenging his will–with Sean (Keisha’s ex) as her lawyer!

Highlights:
-Raquel checking Keisha about carelessness and neglecting their friendship
-Morgan got married!
-Terence snapping on Raquel and Keisha
-April knocking Felicia on her ass
-The revelation of Malcolm’s stepmother
-Eve pulls her investment from Indulgence

Disappointments:
-Nothing from season 2 ran into this season. April, Omar, and Raquel’s love interests were all written off.

The CW has found its Batwoman, who will appear in a DC crossover event of Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl in December and then likely again in her own standalone series.

Ruby Rose, the stunning scene-stealer from Orange Is the New Black, John Wick: Chapter 2and The Meg, has been cast as the caped crusader’s female contemporary.

What’s more, the character Batwoman will be openly lesbian, the first to lead a TV show.

“Rose will be playing the Kate Kane version of the character, who, armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind, soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence,” an overview from DC Comics reads.

“But don’t call her a hero yet—in a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

 Batwoman’s co-creator, Greg Rucka, has sounded off in support of Ruby’s casting as Kate Kane/Batwoman:

We have to say AGAIN we are here for this new Batwoman series and cannot wait for this year’s crossover event. Team Arrow, Team Flash, The Legends, Supergirl, and Black Lightning are finally getting some help from at least one of Gotham’s superheroes! What do you guys think of this casting news?

It looks like arguments do not stay at the table when it comes to ABC’s The View. On Thursday, panelists, Whoopi Goldberg and Jeanine Pirro got into a heated interview. Now we learn that the real drama went on behind the scenes with Whoopi and Jeanine getting into a shouting match backstage!

The confrontation ended with liberal Goldberg allegedly shouting, “F–k you, get the f–k out!” at President Trump supporter and Fox News host Pirro.

During the screaming match, Pirro told Goldberg, “I’ve done more for abused women than you will ever do,” we hear.

The trouble, sources told us, started before Pirro even went on-air to promote her new book, “Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy” — when Pirro arrived at “The View” to learn that anti-Trump CNN contributor Ana Navarro was filling in for Joy Behar.

“When Jeanine arrived on set she was looking for a fight and refusing to be on with Ana, demanding [Ana] not be in the segment,” an insider said. “[Pirro] was yelling at [‘The View’] executive producer and her staff like, ‘You need to handle this.’”

Another source told us that Pirro “was upset that Ana was there because she wasn’t told until the last minute. Ana is 24-7 anti-Trump. Jeanine wasn’t yelling, but you could tell they felt like the segment was being hijacked by shoving in an anti-Fox, anti-Trump person.”

Navaro did appear in Pirro’s segments, and things came to a head on the ABC show when the “Justice with Judge Jeanine” host accused left-wing Goldberg of having “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

Goldberg responded of Trump, “I have never seen anybody whip up such hate.”

It really sucks that Donald Trump can cause such chaos on a well-respected show. We are sure both ladies held their own, but this only serves as a sign of the times as politics have become more and more volatile.
