Gay “Pride” is not just for the month of June as daily LGBT people continue to make leaps and bounds in the arenas of acceptance, equality, and representation. One series, Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe has always pushed the envelope with its LGBT-friendly characters and content. Just this week, however, the series took things a step further with a wedding–a same-sex one!

As you may already know most of the characters in Steven Universe are female aliens known as Gems. Two of these gems, leader of the Crystal Gems, faction of gems, sworn to protect the Earth, Ruby and Sapphire, are in a romantic relationship and are usually fused together to become the heroine, Garnet. Garnet is in many ways not only a physical manifestation of their love, but a symbol of a lesbian relationship. Ruby proposed to Sapphire this week and most of the other characters prepped for the wedding, made amends with one another, and finally teamed up to fight the series‘ antagonists, Blue and Yellow Diamond.

This is not the first time Steven Universe has showcased gay content. Another character Pearl was in love Rose Quartz/Pink Diamond, Steven Universe’s mother, and has even pursued a human woman. Steven himself fuses with his female friend Connie, to become the intersexed fusion, Stevonnie, Rhodonite, another fusion, is the physical representation between two other female gems; and even more interesting is another character is Fluorite, a fusion of several gems in a polyamorous relationship!

You can check out the episode featuring the wedding, Reunited, in the video below. Happy viewing!

Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures announced today a relaunch of the kids’ entertainment franchise “Rugrats.” A new animated-series revival featuring the characters from the ’90s cartoon has received with a 26-episode order from Nickelodeon; and Paramount Players, the new film division launched to develop projects based on properties from Viacom cable channels, has given a greenlight to a live-action film featuring CGI characters. Both the TV series and the movie will include new adventures with beloved characters Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Susie and Angelica, and will also introduce a new world of characters.

The show’s original creators Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain will return to the TV series as executive producers. Nickelodeon’s “Rugrats” will be produced in Burbank, Calif., with production already underway. Additional news of the TV series, airdate and casting will be announced in the coming months.

We have to tell you that we are HERE  for this Rugrats reboot! This series brings back all types of memories as you recall all of their misadventures and realize just how evil Angelica Pickles really was. Rugrats was one of those iconic NickToons we will never get over. Now if someone can just convince them to add Doug, Ren & Stimpy, Aah! Real Monsters, and of course CatDog, to that roster then we really will be talking!

Good job Nickelodeon we officially feel like kids again!

Netflix/Marvel’s Luke Cage is back an we could not be happier. Everyone’s favorite Harlem hero in a hoodie with bulletproof skin and super strength, is back walking the streets. This time around he’s going to need more than super powers to take down the villains that threaten his home turf. In fact it is the villains showcased in the second season of the series that really add the depth and power to the series. Although most of them are larger than life, two of them, Shades (Theo Rossi) and Comanche (Thomas Q. Jones) have actually been intimate with each other.

Shades Luke Cage

Shades, as you recall, is a hired gun who worked for Cottonmouth in the first season, but by the season’s end he aligned himself with Black Mariah (Alfre Woodard), becoming her lieutenant and boy toy. In a surprising twist of events in Season 2, Shades brings on his childhood best friend, Comanche, as his right hand man. As their bond is explored we learn not only did they have each other’s backs, but were intimate while in prison.

Thomas Q. Jones as Comanche

Until episode six, “The Basement,” where it is revealed that they were lovers in prison as well as being childhood friends. While Shades has processed their relationship jail as one of comfort in a dark place, Comanche makes it clear that who was in prison wasn’t a cover it’s who he is.

Comanche: We are more than that. Or did you forget that shit, too?

Shades: Inside was inside. Lack of human interaction. Lack of trust. We did what we had to do to keep from going crazy.

Comanche: We didn’t have to do shit. I wanted to. You did, too.

Shades: Life inside is inside. Prison has its own set of rules that no one in the outside world would ever understand. We’re out now. It’s different. I’m different, we’re different.

Comanche: I ain’t different. Inside, outside; I am who I am, B.

Shades: What do you want me to say?

Comanche: Come on, man. Cat’s out here getting their heads cut off. Maybe we survive, maybe we don’t. I’m just saying how I feel.

Shades: I would die for you, Che. That’ll never change. But it is what it is.

For Shades it seems his gay tryst with Comanche was situational for their time in prison. It is not the first time we have heard of guys beign “prison gay.” Theo Rossi has come forward to state that Comanche is in fact the true love of Shades’ life in an interview with SyFy.com:

Caught in the middle of the action is Shades’ long-time friend, partner, and “the love of his life,” Darius “Comanche” Jones (Thomas Q. Jones). Rossi says Comanche was Shades’ heart, his true soulmate, so when Shades finds it necessary to kill Comanche to protect Mariah’s (and his own) interests in Episode 7, “On and On,” he ends up inflicting permanent damage to himself.

Either way this is very progressive. Marvel continues to push the envelope with its characters and Luke Cage. What do you guys think of Shades and Comanche’s relationship? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

Sorry Kenya Moore fans, but the “twirl” will not go on–at least now he we are use to it. Apparently, Kenya has been fired from Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta and WILL NOT be filming a single episode of Season 11 with any of the other ladies.

“We look forward to welcoming new housewives and telling new authentic stories for season 11,” a production source told Radar exclusively.

Moore’s contract will not be renewed.

NeNe Leakes, Porsha Williams,Marlo Hampton,Cynthia Bailey, and new mom and new full-time, Housewife Eva Marcille, all filmed together in Miami amid Moore’s ousting from the show.

Her sneaky secret wedding and refusal to put her husband or any details about her marriage on season 10 led to her firing.

And while producers contemplated offering her a pay cut and a reduction in appearances on the highest-rated show in the Housewives franchise, Moore was ultimately cut from RHOA.

However, Kenya has proven herself time and again that she is a force to be reckoned with. As it is also being reported she may be following in Kim Zolciak’s footsteps and getting her own pregnancy special leading into her own show!

via Radar Online

After her secret marriage and fake pregnancy scandal, Moore was no longer filming RHOA but a source close to the reality star told Radar that she had big plans for her future.

“Kenya has offers coming in left and right,” the insider spilled to Radar. “She’s looking into doing a pregnancy special and possibly getting her own show afterward.”

Moore was absent from filming in Miami with NeNe Leakes, Porsha Williams, Marlo Hampton, Cynthia Bailey and new mom and new full-time Housewife Eva Marcille.

But she was confident that she would be back on television even without a peach in her hand.

“Kenya’s good and loves hearing all the rumors about her swirling around because they’re proving her point that she’s the true star!”

We will keep you posted on more developments for Kenya as they come through. What do you guys think though? Will you be watching? Sound off in the comments’ section below!
