TLC Cancels ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ Over Mama June Dating Child Molester

TLC Cancels 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' Over Mama June Dating Child Molester

After catching wind of Mama June Shannon dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, TLC promptly pulled the plug on “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”. It all started when TMZ published a photo of June with Mark – which caused concern for the show’s future with the network. Despite denials by June and her girls, the channel yanked the show from the air.

TLC clearly did not believe her and cancelled the show because they felt she was putting her children at risk.

TLC has shot an entire new season of episodes but will not air them. Although the show has fallen off its ratings high, we’re told it’s still very profitable, so TLC is taking a financial hit.

But the network is not turning its back on the kids, telling us, “Supporting the health and welfare of these remarkable children is our only priority. TLC is faithfully committed to the children’s ongoing comfort and well-being.” Our sources say the network will pay for tutors and counselors for the kids.

Here’s hoping that all of the kids will be able to walk away from this and try to go about living normal lives. The network took a hit in cancelling the show, but hopefully June really isn’t dating this creep and she and her girls can try to find some normalcy. Certainly, she doesn’t want a child molester around her daughters, right?

Jane Fonda Has a Chair with Ryan Gosling’s Face on It

AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute To Jane Fonda

Well it turns out that Jane Fonda has what every other girl and probably a lot of men want… a chair with Ryan Gosling’s face on it.  Amazing right?  But it turns out – the chair isn’t exactly hers.  While she was photographed carrying this gem of a seat – it was merely a prop for the first episode of her new Netflix original series, Grace and Frankie.  (See the picture and fabulous chair here).

You too can sit on Gosling’s face, for just over $400.  Well – you can join the waiting list to do so.  the chair was actually part of a limited-edition ‘Face Chairs’ sold on Gilt for $309 – but with an added $100 delivery fee.  It’s currently sold out… but we can dare to dream.

Grace and Frankie is a half-hour comedy that will star Fonda and Lily Tomlin as long time rivals whose husbands break the news that they are, in fact, in love with each other and plan to marry.  Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston play the lovers, and the show will also star Ethan Embry and Brooklyn Decker.  The series was created by Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris.  It sounds terribly entertaining.  But then again, I haven’t met a Netflix series I didn’t like.  Smart programming people…

Geena Davis to Appear on ‘Grey’s Anatomy!’

Hollywood Reporter's Women In Entertainment Breakfast

Academy Award winner, Geena Davis, has signed on for a ‘major guest arc’ on the 11th season of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy!  I cannot believe this show is still on BTW.  Don’t get me wrong- I used to love it- but I had to trim the fat on my DVR and, I must admit, it was one of the casualties – that I haven’t really even missed.

I digress.  The Thelma & Louise star will play a surgeon at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.  This gigantic casting move is likely a bit in response to the departure of ‘Dr. Cristina Yang,’ played by Sandra Oh, who left last season.

The season 11 premiere airs on September 25th.  I can’t believe Fall TV is upon us already.  Where did the summer go?

On a side note- Davis founded the Institute on Gender in Media – a research-based organization that works with media and entertainment to ‘engage, educate, and influence the need to dramatically improve, gender balance, reduce stereotyping and create diverse female characters in entertainment targeting children 11 and under.’  She was inspired after watching children’s entertainment with her own young daughter and realizing a huge dearth of female characters.

Pretty interesting no?
