‘Unreal’ EPs: Season 3 Will Explore ‘What it is to be a Woman Today’

UnREAL Ep. 210 -  "Friendly Fire"  - Day 06 of 07, June 15, 2016, Surrey, BC, Canada

When “Unreal” returns for its third season next month, it does so with quite a few changes. After last year’s explosive season finale saw Jeremy (Josh Kelly) causing a fatal car accident so secrets about reality dating competition series “Everlasting” wouldn’t come out and shut down the franchise, everyone involved has been lying low for a few months. But now the show is ramping up again, and with that comes a new suitor — in the form of the first female “suitress,” tech giant Serena (played by Caitlin FitzGerald) — along with a new Jeremy who is sober and ready to work behind the camera again, a new on-set shrink Dr. Simon (Brandon Jay McLaren), and most notably a new Rachel (Shiri Appleby), who is determined to live her life from a place of total honesty.

“One of the primary themes of the show from its inception was workaholism and what that’s about, and one of the things we’ve always said about Rachel is that’s one of the hardest things is to deal with herself,” executive producer Sarah Gertrude Shapiro tells Variety. “Having to look at her own life was terrifying and that when the opportunity came up to obliterate herself with work, and that Quinn really needed her, she took it. They have a very codependent relationship, and so that the idea of having a role and a function and being loved and admired for her work and the way she deals with Quinn is very, very appealing.”
Although the “Everlasting” set is a trigger for Rachel, who Shapiro points out is so controlling over a narrative that she never used to be able to tell the truth about even simple things, like what she had for lunch, she starts out completely committed to this new way of life, even when it annoys Quinn (Constance Zimmer) and seems to threaten her ability to successfully do her job. It’s a way for the show to look at addiction and play with the idea of Rachel’s rock bottom, which Shapiro says she still doesn’t think we’ve seen yet.

While recovering from addiction is an everyday process, executive producer Stacy Rukeyser says she believes Rachel is healthier when Season 3 starts than she has been in awhile — but she’s not completely healed, because she is still refusing to look at her role in Jeremy’s actions at the end of last season.
“We deliberately left it open for the audience to make up their minds about, but I believe, and she will tell Dr. Simon later in the season, that she knew he would do something. And I think she has to deal with the consequences of what he in fact did and what it is in her that produced him to do something knowing that the guy was a drunk and had an anger problem and was dangerous,” Rukeyser says. ‘She’s not taking any responsibility for that [and] that’s a lot of what she has to confront. And then she has to unpack the darkness of what got Jeremy to do something to protect Quinn, to protect her family, [as well as] the prevailing darkness that brings her back to this show and gives her a sense of power and agency over people.”

Rukeyser admits that in keeping Jeremy a part of the narrative in the third season, it’s a way to constantly have a physical reminder for Rachel of what she has to face and just how much more she has to get honest about. However, Rukeyser says they are not necessarily looking to redeem him as a character.

“We talk a lot about the corrosive effects of reality TV and the influence it has on our culture and the people who appear on those shows, as well as the people who work on those shows,” she says. “And also he’s another person in this world that has to come to terms with ‘Is this the place I want to be?.”


“Unreal” Season 3 premieres Feb. 26 at 10pm on Lifetime.

These Porg Cookies Are Almost Too Cute to Eat

Whip up some treats inspired by a galaxy far, far away…

To celebrate the opening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, craft these Porg Cookies with your whole family. They’re so adorable and delicious that they’re sure to go fast. So, we recommend sneaking a few extra for yourself.


Ingredients

COOKIES:

• Porg Template
• Cardstock
• Scissors
• 1/2 Cup unsalted butter, softened
• 1 Cup white sugar
• 2 eggs
• 1 Tsp vanilla extract
• 3 Tbsp milk
• 3 Tsp baking powder
• 2 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
• Circular cookie cutter

ICING:

• 2 Tbsp meringue powder
• 1/4 Cup water (plus more for thinning)
• 4 Cups powdered sugar
• 1 Tsp vanilla extract
• Orange, gray, and white gel food coloring
• Pastry bags and tips
• Offset spatula
• Toothpicks
• Black candies

Helpful Tip
All cutting should be done by an adult.

Directions

1. Print out the porg template on cardstock and cut out your preferred size (it should be similar in size to the cookie cutter).

2. Preheat oven to 375° F.

3. Then, start on the dough. Cream butter and sugar by mixing together.

4. Whisk eggs in a separate small bowl until yolk and whites are combined.
5. Add whisked eggs, vanilla, and milk into butter and sugar mixture, beating together.

6. In a separate bowl, mix together baking powder and flour. Then add it into your wet cookie mix and combine together with a rubber spatula.

7. On a floured surface, roll out cookie dough.

8. Bend the cookie cutter into the shape of the porg cutout. Then use to cut out the cookie dough.


9. Bake on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet for 7-9 minutes. Let cool.

10. Now make the royal icing.

11. In a mixer, whisk together meringue powder and water until foam starts forming. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix for about 2 minutes for the right consistency. If the mixture is too thick, add more water (1 teaspoon at a time).

12. Separate into bowls and add food coloring. Thin the icing with water, until it has reached the desired consistency.

13. Add to piping bags. Then, decorate using the template as a reference. To frost the main shape in white, start with a large tip and place frosting in the middle. Then use an offset spatula to spread to the corners. For the more intricate details in orange and gray, use smaller tips. Make the borders and expand to the middle with toothpicks. Then add dark candies for the eyes.

14. Store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to enjoy the cookies!

REVIEW: “The Masterpiece Kitchen” Food Studio – Epcot International Festival of the Arts 2018

Welcome to a food studio review for the Epcot International Festival of the Arts, taking place in the park all week from January 12th to February 19th, 2018. This review will cover “The Masterpiece Kitchen” Food Studio



The Masterpiece Kitchen

Food:

Charcuterie Palette with Artisan Cured Meats, Nueske’s Smoked Beef and Cheese

• Smoked Salmon Tartare, Caviar, Crisp Lavash and Traditional Accompaniments

• Wild Mushroom Risotto, Aged Parmesan, Truffle Shavings and Zinfandel Reduction (V)

• Triple Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Crunch, Dark Chocolate Sauce and Gold Leaf from our Master Pastry Chef

Beverages:

• Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Brut Champagne

• Classic Sidecar with a Chocolate Twist

• The Meeker Vineyard Winemakers’ Handprint Merlot, Sonoma County, CA

• Pinord La Dama Reserva Familiar Brut

• Pinord La Dama Reserva Familiar Brut Rosé

• Silverado Vineyards Chardonnay

Charcuterie Palette with Artisan Cured Meats, Nueske’s Smoked Beef and Cheese $14.00



A solid charcuterie board with lots of different flavor profiles. We enjoyed each of the items presented: The cheeses were supreme and the meats were on point, except for the pâté near the back of the plate. Similar to the situation in France, this one just didn’t match any of the other flavors presented and ended up just being bad. $14.00 for this dish seems a bit expensive, but they’re fresh-slicing the meats for every order, like how the Spain booth originally served the charcuterie in a cone from Food & Wine in 2017.
Smoked Salmon Tartare, Caviar, Crisp Lavash and Traditional Accompaniments – $12.00


The smoked salmon tartare is a solid dish and will certainly appease anyone who enjoys such things. It really has a really amazing flavor palatte and if you have never had caviar or salmon tartare, this is a rather nice dish to try them on.

Wild Mushroom Risotto, Aged Parmesan, Truffle Shavings and Zinfandel Reduction (V) – $9.00


This is my second favorite dish of the entire Epcot International Festival of the Arts, so much so that I wish I could order a full-sized entree featuring it. The cheese and risotto blend together perfectly, and the mushrooms were very flavorful, proving especially tasty when soaked into the risotto.

Triple Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Crunch, Dark Chocolate Sauce and Gold Leaf from the Master Pastry Chef – $9.25


One of the better desserts of the event, the triple chocolate mousse features distinct flavors stacked on top of each other for a delicious combination. It is also particularly photogenic, if you are into that sort of thing…

Classic Sidecar with a Chocolate Twist – $9.25



If you enjoy a good Sidecar, this won’t disappoint. For those unaware of the ingredients:

The sidecar is a cocktail traditionally made with cognac, orange liqueur (Cointreau, Grand Marnier, Grand Gala or another triple sec), and lemon juice. In its ingredients, the drink is perhaps most closely related to the older brandy crusta, which differs both in presentation and in proportions of its components.

About half of our group liked this and half did not, so your results with it may vary. The chocolate twist is a nice touch.

New Area Soundtrack debuts at Disney’s Hollywood Studios



The next time you visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios you won’t see the newest update to the park, but you will hear it. The park has updated the background music soundtrack to match the tone and story of the park’s updated narrative. Just like a film soundtrack, a theme park’s music is key to providing a complete experience for the guest.

At the park’s main entrance, Disney has shifted to big band arrangements of familiar Disney tunes to get your day started off right. After you enter the park, the music transitions to popular songs from the 30s and 40s, also in the big band style that comes to a crescendo as you approach the Chinese Theater.

Throughout the park, the music complements each area’s setting and time frame. From brassy horns near Echo Lake and jazz at the new BaseLine Tap House, to the sounds of live concert performances outside Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, it’s music to your ears.

“As Imagineers, we always look for ways to enhance the story we are telling our guests, and the music in our parks is a powerful tool we use to ground the story in a time and place,” stated Alex Grayman, art director, Walt Disney Imagineering. “At Disney’s Hollywood Studios guests can experience their own adventures and music lends an air of authenticity by adding detail in each immersive setting.”

According to theme park design tenets, background music is one of the key elements that unifies different themed areas. It serves the unconscious demands of the guest to have all five senses match the experience their eyes are delivering to them.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios will see a lot of changes over the next few years as a new Mickey Mouse theme attraction opens, plus two whole new lands debut – Toy Story Land and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. When you visit, be sure to open your ears and well as your eyes and let us know what you think of the park’s new soundtrack.

Escandalos Disney − Connie Britton: Yes, poverty is sexist. Here’s why.


At Sunday’s Golden Globes, Connie Britton wore black in support of the Time’s Up anti-harassment movement, including a sweater that read, “Poverty is sexist.” The sweater’s message and price later became a topic of discussion online. Britton defended the sweater on Twitter, writing, “I just don’t think a $5,000 gown would have added to the conversation in the same way” and noting that designer Lingua Franca was donating $100 from each purchase to charity. In a guest essay for Entertainment Weekly, she speaks further about the message she aimed to send.

Sunday’s Golden Globe awards sent an important message about how women are treated in this country, and how an imperative sea change is happening now. Like my fellow actors, directors, and producers, I dressed in black in solidarity to acknowledge that it is time for women and men to empower ourselves with equality.

I proudly wore a sweater embroidered with the words “poverty is sexist” because nowhere in the world are women economically equal to men, nor do they have the same economic opportunities as men — and that inequality is even worse for girls and women in the world’s poorest countries.

At a time when we are acknowledging the destructive nature of sexism and systemic gender inequality in our culture, my hope is that this movement, this conversation will reach outward to all places where women’s voices are silenced so frequently, as well as beyond our borders to some of the poorest places in the world, where poverty is such a defining factor of women’s lives and subsequently of their communities and nations.

Here’s what I mean: 130 million girls around the world are denied an education. Women in developing countries account for less than half of all students enrolled in lower secondary school. In 18 countries, a man is legally empowered to prevent his wife from doing a job of which he doesn’t approve. And women in low-income countries have less access to financial institutions and the internet than men. In Africa, nearly three out of four new HIV infections are in adolescent girls.

So women around the world are more deeply entrenched in the effects of poverty, and they have fewer opportunities to escape. In other words: Poverty is sexist.

Why is this so important? Poverty is an inhumane way to live and also incredibly destructive to the fabric of families, communities, and nations. Put another way, if the millions of women who are not empowered financially around the world had access to the education they deserve, and were paid equally for the work they are capable of, the financial influx into economies would be enormous. This would spill over into every aspect of those economies and countries, including national and global security, health and life expectancy, and environmental sustainability.

Luckily, there is one thing that can help bring this kind of powerful change: education. Education is one of the most powerful tools we have in the fight against extreme poverty. It’s hard to overstate how important education is to achieving the United Nations’ sustainable development goals for ending poverty and promoting prosperity for all. Think of those 130 million uneducated girls around the world as 130 million sources of untapped potential who could lift their countries out of extreme poverty.

There is plenty of evidence that shows educated countries are healthier, wealthier, and more stable — and that access to a quality education is one of the best ways to combat poverty. As The ONE Campaign documented, educating every girl in sub-Saharan Africa to secondary-school levels could help save the lives of 1.2 million children. Educating girls to the same level as boys could help developing countries save money, all while improving the strength of the global economy.

With all that we have going on in our own country today, sometimes it’s hard to see how what’s happening around the world has anything to do with us and our communities. I get it. But we have the opportunity to end extreme poverty within our lifetimes, and those benefits will reverberate across the globe — and here at home. As is true here in the U.S., we can only get there if women and girls are at the forefront of the movement.

And saying that poverty is sexist doesn’t mean that boys and men aren’t affected by it. It’s simply an acknowledgment that girls and women living in extreme poverty have an even steeper hill to climb because of archaic and systemic policy and behavior. Every daughter should have the same opportunities as every son. Only then will we be able to put an end to extreme poverty for women and men. Really. We all win.

In just a few weeks, global leaders will meet in Senegal to make new investments in the Global Partnership for Education, one of the largest education funders in some of the world’s poorest countries. It’s an important moment, and I hope my fellow Americans will join me and The ONE Campaign in urging the president and other world leaders to make a historic investment in girls’ education. Because educated girls grow into strong women who help build strong families, communities, and economies. It’s time to unleash that strength to eradicate extreme poverty for everyone once and for all.

Connie Britton is a four-time Emmy-nominated actress and member of The ONE Campaign, a policy and advocacy organization of more than 8 million people taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.

Disney Scandals - Respect Rally Set For Sundance 2018 As Alfre Woodard, Scarlett Johansson + More Join Jan. 20 LA Women’s March


One year after Donald Trump became President of a clearly deeply divided United States, the Sundance Film Festival will be among various cities and towns in America next week rallying in commemoration and continuation of 2017’s Women’s Marches.

Of course, after the sexual harassment and sexual assault claims that have dominated Hollywood the past few months, this year’s gathering takes on even deeper implications, especially in one of the Ground Zeros of Harvey Weinstein’s allegedly vile actions.

Being billed as a Respect Rally, organizers of last year’s March on Main are pulling together a gathering for January 20 at 10 AM Utah time in Park City. “After Trump and then (Harvey) Weinstein, Sundance is an essential spotlight for promoting the issues that we took to the streets last year,” said one insider of the planned rally across from the Library in Park City.

“We take this opportunity to join in solidarity with members of the local community and visitors from the global creative community to demonstrate and voice our respect for all ethnicities, religions, genders, political and sexual orientations, to commune in respect for our land, our water and our air, and to show deference for each person’s individual experience and belief system,” organizers have said on social media of the assembly.

While a Hollywood heavy contingent is expected on what will officially be the third and certainly packed day of SFF 2018, the speaker’s list is still being finalized we hear. Not officially a Sundance event, the Rally, like last year’s March, is likely to attract Sundance Institute boss Keri Putnam and others from the Robert Redford founded fest.

Here in LA, where last year’s Women’s March drew a massive crowd of 750,000, the speaker’s list for next week looks to be pretty settled and solid. Having taken the stage in DTLA last year before heading to Park City for the film Burning Sands, Alfre Woodard will be speaking this year in Grand Park on the morning of January 20.



The Luke Cage star will be joined by the Black Widow herself Scarlett Johansson, Larry Wilmore, Chloe Bennet, Rowan Blanchard, Yvette Nicole Brown, former Chicago PD star Sophia Bush, Laverne Cox, Scandal’s ex-POTUS Tony Goldwyn, Paris Jackson, Megan Mullally, Idina Menzel, Maxwell Olivia Munn, Nicole Richie, departed E! News host Catt Sadler, Adam Scott and Olivia Wilde. The Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and Melissa Etheridge will be performing too.

With an emphasis on preparing for the 2018-midterm elections, more names are expected to be added in the next week. We know that LA Mayor Eric Garcetti will be at the event this year as he was last year along with representatives of the ACLU, the Black Lives Matters movement, Planned Parenthood, and GLADD.

Starting a bit later than last year’s 8,000 strong attended March on Main, the 2018 Park City rally is scheduled to go to around 11:30 AM MST and hence will allow buyers, dealmakers and moviegoers to hit their marks on one of Sundance’s critical days. The Los Angeles’ Women’s March will start at 8:30 AM PST at DTLA’s Pershing Square before heading over to near City Hall later in the morning. Similar events are planned for NYC and elsewhere across America on January 20.

We will update as we learn more about the Respect Rally’s speakers and other information.

Love these looks: 2018 Golden Globe Awards


Grab some popcorn and claim the coziest couch spot: It’s awards show season! But this year, you might have noticed a larger buzz surrounding this season's shows, like last night's Golden Globe Awards. While plenty of awards were served up at the ceremony as always, the night was really about the #TimesUp movement.

The movement exists as a call for an end to sexual assault, harassment and inequality in the workplace, as the website states. Though the movement reaches beyond the entertainment industry, many actors and actresses pledged to wear black to the Globes to stand in solidarity with those who have been silenced by discrimination, harassment or abuse in all industries and bring attention to the cause. The movement is essentially saying that “time's up" on those in power getting away with such behaviors.

Sure enough, the red carpet was a sea of black gowns and tuxes. Many have also pledged money to the #TimesUp legal defense fund, which provides legal representation and support to men and women have have experienced harassment, abuse or assault in the workplace while in pursuit of their careers.

We think that's amazing. And we agree with The Cut: This year’s Golden Globes red carpet wasn't about what designers these actresses and actors are wearing—though the fashion industry is just as important as any other, and designers deserve praise for their artistic talents—it was about the meaning behind the choice of so many to unite by wearing black, because supporting and believing victims is important.

The #TimesUp movement has received criticism, too. Some voices on Twitter, such as Rose McGowan, have questioned the efficacy of a sartorial statement; some worried that the movement could be interpreted to mean that women should respond to sexual harassment by adjusting their attire; others suggested that only a full boycott of the event would make a true statement.

But, as Kerry Washington explained to the LA Times, many actresses felt it was important to support the women being nominated by attending the Golden Globes. “We thought it was stronger to participate, but make sure we had a public sign of support.”

One thing is certain: The #TimesUp movement has ignited a conversation about the best way to support victims of sexual abuse—and no matter how you look at it, that’s a win. In our fashion round up below, we're showcasing those who decided to support and believe.

Claire Foy


The Crown actress is quite literally wearing the pants, and we love that.

Golden Globes: What You Didn’t See on TV


The Golden Globes always makes for one of the best televised award shows — with its heady mix of stars from film and television, unpredictable acceptance speeches, and generally raucous vibe.

Unlike the rest of the shows on the awards circuit, at the Globes, guests sit around dinner tables — rather than in rows in an auditorium — where the champagne and wine are free-flowing.

This year’s awards didn’t disappoint. But the cameras couldn’t capture all of the action in the room. During commercial breaks — and slow moments on-stage — Hollywood’s A-list headed out to the bar and the smoking patio, where they mingled over even more cocktails. Here’s what you didn’t see on TV.

Everyone loves “Stranger Things.”

The cast and creators of Netflix’s hit were mobbed by famous fans before, during, and after the show. David Harbour caught up with Bill Pullman and Alfred Molina; executive producers the Duffer Brothers chatted with “Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. And Harbour shared a tender moment with his co-star Millie Bobby Brown.





Rowdy room

The worst job at the Globes must be that of the announcer, who tried time and time again to get the crowd to settle down when the show came back after a commercial break. And then there were those precious last moments before airtime, as he frantically tried to get everyone seated as the minutes clocked down to 5 p.m. Netflix chief Ted Sarandos chatted with Ron Howard, as they stood at the top of the stairs. But the biggest names were among the last to head in off the carpet, including Mariah Carey, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Margot Robbie, and Meryl Streep.

Foraging for food

Yes, guests do get fed at the Globes — but dinner is served while the red carpet is still in full force. By the time the stars actually sit down, the food is long gone, having been cleared away by diligent servers. Which means anyone who’s hungry has to settle for the finger sandwiches, vegetable crudites and fruit platters that are served in the bar. Only problem: by 6 p.m., the snacks were long gone.

Raising the bar

The bar outside the ballroom is always the site of prime schmoozing, as well as the outside smoking patio. Hanks made a beeline for the bar during the first commercial break, delivering a tray of martinis to his table. Kit Harington (“Game of Thrones”) spent most of the night holding court outside. Aaron Sorkin cracked open his gold cigarette case as soon as he stepped outside. And Matt Smith (“The Crown”) tried to do a quick bar run, but quickly got mobbed.

Oprah for president

At times, it felt like there were more people outside the ballroom than in it, but everyone rushed back inside to hear Oprah Winfrey’s acceptance speech. And she didn’t disappoint. The noisy chatter that filled the room the rest of the night quieted down as Winfrey delivered the moment of the night, saying, “I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon” — to several standing ovations, cheers, and even a few whistles.

Crowd control

The audience is used to migrating back and forth between the ballroom and the bar, but at the start of the show, security insisted on keeping the doors closed during the ceremony. But the crowd wasn’t cooperating, and eventually they gave up, letting the noise and the chatter from the outside spaces filter through to the back of the ballroom.

Black is the new black

Nearly the only bright spot of color to be found at the show was the actual red carpet — most women and men alike dressed in solidarity with the Time’s Up movement. Men even traded in white shirts for black ones, like “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris, saying, “You’ve got to show your true colors tonight.” There were a few outliers, of course — as well as a few women with impossibly long trains that kept getting trampled in the crush.

Tommy takes the stage

When James Franco won for best actor in “The Disaster Artist,” the crowd’s attention immediately turned to Tommy Wiseau, who rose to his feet to support the man who played him in the movie. “Tommy, Tommy,” they chanted as Wiseau was finally persuaded to join Franco on stage — although Franco didn’t let him speak.

Seth Meyers’ vanishing act

His monologue was (mostly) well-received in the room, as he deftly acknowledged the “Time’s Up” movement as well as the the latest headlines about President Donald Trump. “He’s the perfect host for tonight,” Kevin Bacon said. But then he all but disappeared from the stage, leaving it to women and well-chosen presenters to take center stage. Surprise presenters like Carol Burnett and Kirk Douglas won full-throated support from the crowd, as well as Barbra Streisand.

Photo finish

Selfies were the game of the night, as stars not only indulged fans with photos — The Rock was a good sport, stopping several times on his way into the room — but also snapped some themselves to capture the historic night.
