Saturday Night Live Taps Jim Carrey to Join Season 46 as Joe Biden

Published

on

Saturday Night Live has elected to make a major casting change: Jim Carrey will take over the role of Vice President Joe Biden in Season 46, succeeding Jason Sudeikis. The recasting comes with the presidential election — pitting Biden against incumbent POTUS Donald Trump — less than two months away.

“There was some interest on his part,” EP Lorne Michaels tells Vulture of Carrey. “And then we responded, obviously, positively. But it came down to discussions about what the take was. He and [head writer/cast member] Colin Jost had a bunch of talks. He and I as well.”

Michaels also confirmed that Alec Baldwin will be back as Trump, with Maya Rudolph set to once again play Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris.

Additionally, SNL has added three new featured players — improv vets Lauren Holt, Punkie Johnson and Andrew Dismukes — to the cast.

Season 46 will premiere on Saturday, Oct. 3, and it will do so from its signature Studio 8H stomping ground as well as with a “limited in-studio audience.” SNL will kick off its new season with five consecutive shows.

The premiere will mark SNL‘s first in-studio episode since March 7. Three non-live, at-home, COVID-safe installments closed out Season 45.

As we reported earlier this week, SNL‘s entire ensemble — including Kate McKinnon — will be back for Season 46.

Anna Duggar Continues to Promote Counting On: Could She Return?!?

We hate to be the ones to break it to you, television fans, but you may need to brace yourselves for the worst.


You may need to accept the fact that Josh Duggar may one day make his way back to the small screen.


We’re not sure what other takeaway there could be at the moment, considering Anna Duggar’s recent onslaught of promotion for her in-laws’ reality show, Counting On.


Anna and her heinous husband, Josh, stopped appearing on this program years ago… in the wake of Josh confessing to molesting his sisters and also cheating frequently on his wife.


However, despite being kicked off the series, Anna has been telling followers of late to make sure to tune in for various new episodes.

Anna Duggar and Her Youngest


Earlier this week, the mother of six posted a preview of the Counting On season finale to her Instagram stories, alongside a countdown clock to alert supporters to its start time.


Anna also shared footage of the episode that chronicled Joy-Anna’s pregnancy news, just nine months after she suffered a harrowing miscarriage.


Anna referred to this as a “sweet episode,” which marked one of the first times she had posted positively about the reality series.


Fans across the country are therefore wondering whether or not Anna is planting the seeds for a return to the spotlight, following so many years off the air.

Why might Josh and Anna want to jump back in to the Counting On chaos?


It’s not hard to surmise, is it?


The couple needs the money, especially as their family continues to grow and also as Josh continues to lose out on endorsements and other business opportunities.


Taking to Instagram last month, Anna shared pictures from the upcoming Counting on Christmas special, writing:


“It means a lot when our family is included (on rare occasions) in the events that air on tv with Joshua’s family. We had a blast celebrating Christmas with an ugly sweater party and a Christmas play!”

As for why TLC would want Josh and Anna back in the picture?


It’s not hard to surmise, either, is it? 


Ratings.


So, basically, also money.

It was revealed in 2015, of course, that Josh molested numerous underage girls, including four of his sisters, when he was 14 and 15 years old.


He was then revealed to be a client of the adultery website Ashley Madison, eventually admitting that he cheated on his wife.


The Sun, meanwhile, more recently reported that Josh’s car business, Wholesale Motorcars, is no longer open, as Google lists the company as “permanently closed.”


The closure of Josh’s used car dealership came around the time Homeland Security Investigations conducted an “ongoing federal investigation” at the lot in November 2019.


No charges were ever filed against Josh.

Anna, Josh, Baby


In related news, Anna and Josh may have a prominent storyline if/when they show up on Counting On down the line.


Asked about having future kids by an Instagram follower this summer, Anna didn’t deny that baby number-seven could be on the way in the near future.


“As of now, we are enjoying our 6 kids God has given us!” she said, adding: “Nursing gives me a nice break between babies so it will probably be a little while before that’s a possibility.”


We all know it will happen one day, however, don’t we?


Let’s just go ahead and pray for this child right now. He or she will definitely need it.

Nikki Bella Details Postpartum Sex With Fiance Artem: ‘I Felt Like Organs Were About to Drop Out’

Published

As always, Nikki Bella isn’t afraid to keep it real! The longtime Total Bellas star, 36, opened up about what postpartum sex with her fiancé, Artem Chigvintsev, has been like since welcoming their son, Matteo Artemovich, in July. 

“I didn’t even make it to the six-week point, I just started at five. I was like, ‘I’m healed, I’m fine,’” Nikki told her sister, Brie Bella, during a Wednesday, September 23, episode of their podcast. Doctors recommend waiting six weeks to have sex after giving birth, according to multiple outlets.

“Even though … last night, it didn’t seem fine, but that’s OK. It was a little different,” Nikki continued before getting a little, er, graphic. “I felt like organs were about to drop out. I was like, ‘Shoot, did I mess up?’” Unsurprisingly, Brie, 36, chimed in to say that was “enough” talk about “gross stuff going on with our vaginas.”

Even so, it seems like fans really appreciate just how candid Nikki is. Beyond sharing insights on her sex life, the California native opened up about her postpartum weight loss journey. “This was really hard to do, but I felt like it was the right thing to do. Because I feel like sometimes on social media and with people sometimes in the spotlight, we just truly don’t showcase how hard postpartum can be and the journey of getting your body back,” Nikki expressed in a raw Instagram Story on September 7.

In the video, the former WWE wrestler wore no makeup, her bra and underwear. “So, I want to bring you all along in the realest, rawest way possible,” Nikki continued. “Here I am! I am 18 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight.”

Prior to giving birth to Matteo, the Incomparable coauthor discussed the many physical challenges she was facing. “Being a first-time mom and just as your body changes … it’s not just the outer part but it’s the inner part — your hormones are going crazy,” Nikki told Life & Style in March. “You have no idea how your body is going to adapt, and that’s been really tough on me.”

Thankfully, Brie was there every step of the way to soothe her nerves. “She’s just constantly reminding me, ‘You’re pregnant. Vanity doesn’t even exist anymore,’ and is trying to just have me be present and appreciate these changes,” Nikki added. From the looks of it, her advice worked wonders!

‘Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion’ costume secrets revealed

Published

“Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion” has it all: extended dream sequences, interpretive dance, a pair of pitch-perfect comedic performances from leads Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow — and really, really good clothes.

Created by Mona May — the costume designer behind another little fashion-famous film called “Clueless” — the 1997 cult classic’s wardrobe is marked by glossy fabrics, itty-bitty skirts and a “fun, frisky use of color,” to quote one key character.

Those same styles are all present and accounted for in May’s new collaboration with online vintage boutique Thrilling, which is full of one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by the looks from her movies and sourced from shops across the country.

Priced from $30 to $200, the collection includes shiny jumpsuits, animal prints and metallic matching sets the Tucson-bred, LA-based BFFs would totally wear while busting moves at the club (or, let’s face it, even to the gym).

Below, the costume designer looks back at some of the most memorable fashion moments from “Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion.”

ON ROMY AND MICHELE’S MATCHING METALLIC MINIDRESSES: “The costumes really show the journey of the character, so every detail is so important. In this case, Mira’s always the masculine ‘boy’ [of the relationship], so she got the blue, and Lisa’s always the feminine [one] with the boas and sparkles, so she got the pink. They wanted to make sure it was very simple, so their silhouettes were the same.

“Using the spandex, shiny material was kind of unusual; people didn’t really make dresses out of that material at the time, [except] maybe ravers. We hand-painted the little ‘Star Trek’ [emblem] on Mira. And we bedazzled the shoes, gluing them the night before. When they come out in that scene, it’s just like, ‘Here we are, we’re creative, we made these.'”

ON THE ’80S PROM LOOKS: “These were vintage pieces, Betsey Johnson dresses. I’m a kid of the ’80s, so Madonna, she was the trailblazer of the time. All her antics allowed us to be ourselves as well. So that was kind an homage, in that scene: They may make fun of you, but you can be who you are and express yourself. Using those Madonna looks was really [to send] a strong message. Dance to your own drum! Swing your hair! Be sexy!”

ON THE “BUSINESSWOMAN SPECIAL” SUITS: “It was great designing these costumes as well. I made Lisa’s suit kind of low-cut and her little skirt was quite mini, then Mira had the pinstriped men’s suit jacket with just little bit of a camisole under with more of a knee-length skirt — because she was the smarter one, she always said.”
