l.i.t. lit the mini series

It has barely been three weeks since Rico Pruitt broke the internet with his debut porn scenes with BlackBoysAddictionz and many of us have been wondering what has he been up to?

And more importantly what would his next move be? Well, it looks like the former  About Him and About Justin  web star has been busy starring in Corey Knott’s newest web series, (the creator and director of Living For The WeekendL.I.T.: The Mini Series.

Here, Rico plays a young man who has moved to Atlanta for a new life and a new chance at love with his boyfriend, Quan. Unsurprisingly things go well for him at first until he is introduced to the darker, faster side of the gay lifestyle of the city when he begins working at a club called “L.I.T.”. Drugs, sexy, and alcohol seemingly cost him everything. Check out the trailer below:

We have to admit this extended trailer is HOT! Perhaps one of the more explosive ones we have ever seen. This will definitely be a web series to watch this Spring, not only because we get to see more of Rico, but his other hot cast mates as well. Justen Ruff, Gorgeous Montana, Zahfar, Jovantae Brownlee, Mustang, and Tyrell Moore are all very attractive men! Still, we have never seen Rico in a serious, dramatic role like this one. It looks like our “Best Friend” is finally all grown up!

Tragically, this story is all too real and at times hits close to home. How many times have we seen or heard stories of young Black Gay Men moving to Atlanta hopeful and inspired only to lose themselves in the darker aspects of the city’s Black Gay subcultures. We know there is a lesson to be learned from this miniseries, but perhaps it should serve as a cautionary tale just as much as a vehicle for entertainment.

Check back here for more info and maybe a few interviews (crossing our fingers)!

#GirlBye! Tomi Lahren (@TomiLahren) Allegedly “Banned Permanently” From Blaze Network!

tomi lahren

It looks like someone got their “just desserts” this week. Apparently and allegedly, controversial and conservative television personality, Tomi Lahren, has been “banned permanently” from Glenn Beck’s The Blaze Network.

This all stems from her decision to come out as “pro-choice” last week which got her suspended.

“Glenn is reminding the world of his conservative principles by sidelining Tomi after she insulted conservatives by calling them hypocrites,” one Beck insider told me.

Fans think Beck — once a big Ted Cruz backer — has lost his conservative bona fides. He went on Samantha Bee’s TBS show in December and apologized for being divisive in the past.

“He’s trying to balance being a leading conservative thinker and also someone who can unify the country,” the Beck associate told me. “He just couldn’t sit by and watch as Tomi Lahren said there’s no way for conservatives to justify anything other than being pro-choice.”

“Beck’s trying to reinvent himself,” a former insider told me. “But he’s burned too many bridges.”

TheBlaze, founded seven years ago in Dallas, once had offices in New York and 300 employees. Now, the New York office is closed and the staff is half that size.

While the number of paying subscribers (once said to be 300,000) is kept secret, TheBlaze.com attracted 29 million unique visitors per month in 2014, and only 8.8 million uniques in February 2017, for a loss of more than two-thirds of its traffic.

Jerry Del Colliano, founder of Inside Radio, said Beck’s syndicated talk radio show has slipped as well from No. 3 to No. 5.

“Beck has lost his mojo, and TheBlaze helped him lose it,” Del Colliano said. “It’s hard to figure out where he is coming from.”

We really cannot say we are unhappy about Tomi’s misfortunes, but we are surprised by her pro-choice stance. Still, just because she is down now does not mean she will be forever. We are sure some conservative–or skewed network (insert cough and Fox News)–will be giving her a job, her own show, and a much higher salary any day now.

What is currently trending at #1 on the internet? Warner Bros/DC’s official movie trailer for the upcoming Justice League movie!

Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman are banding together to face off against an otherworldly attack. Yes, you were probably expecting Superman to be among their ranks, but do not forget he was “killed” in last year’s Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice after helping to defeat Doomsday.

The trailer has been met with rave reviews, with many fans feeling Warner Bros. may have finally gotten things right with their budding DC Cinematic Universe. Still, unless you are a true fanboy/fangirl there are a few things you may not recognize or have known from the trailer. Well, rest assured we have your backs and are going to educate you in a little comic “geekdom!”

The “Death” of Superman

As we mentioned Superman was seemingly killed in his battle with Doomsday, but avid comic book readers know he was only injured so badly he fell into a coma and his vitals could not be detected by conventional Earth technology. Thus, eventually The Man of Steel will return to life. This is confirmed by the appearance of Amy Adams as “Lois Lane,” and from the angle she is looking up at she may be seeing a bird or plane–or Superman!

[PHOTO] Courtroom Brawl Linked To #RHONJ Guest, Kim DePaola (kimdepaola)!

Courtroom brawls come few and far in between–at least in the United States. When they are linked to a television personality its almost unheard of. Well, as you may already know two men were found dead in a burning car owned by  “Friend to the housewives,” of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Kim DePaola, or “Kim D.” as everyone likes to call her.

Kim has not been indicted or implemented in the mens’ deaths, but emotions did run high during a recent court hearing involving the families of the victims and their suspected killers.

courtroom brawl fights

Clarence Williams and Gerry Thomas, in court for a detention hearing, were ordered held without bail when the brawl broke out.

The two Paterson residents previously pleaded not guilty to murder charges in the deaths of Aaron Anderson and Antonio Vega Jr., who were found last week inside a burning Audi.

The car was owned by Kim DePaola, who often appears on the Bravo reality show. Anderson’s mother has said he borrowed the car from DePaola’s son.

The judge warned the families of the suspects and the victims to keep their emotions in check and remain composed.

“I understand you have very strong feelings and may want to blurt something out,” Passaic County Superior Court Judge Ernest Caposela said.

But an argument broke out, and people in the gallery yelled obscenities and threw objects.

Thomas’ attorney, Gregory Aprile, shouted to the judge during the brawl that he wanted the names of everyone involved. Aprile said he may ask that they be banned from future proceedings.

Charges are pending for one person involved in the altercation, according to the Passaic County Sheriff’s office.

Obviously “no f***s were given” as the kids like to say nowadays. We are definitely hoping justice is served and the court proceedings beef up their security!

Amazing Movie & Awesome Cast! Power Rangers (@ThePowerRangers) FOREVER!

Lionsgate knew it had a hit on its hands when it greenlit the reboot for Saban’s Power Rangers movie.

This film plays off our nostalgia for the simpler, cooler time of 1992 when “five teenagers with attitude” were granted amazing powers and even more amazing costumes and vehicles (Zords) to save the world from the evil sorceress, Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks). Flash forward twenty-five years to the rebooted film and Jason (Dacre Montgomery), Zack (Ludy Lin), Billy (RJ Cyler), Trini (Becky G), and Kimberly (Naomi Scott) are still teenagers, but rebels and outcasts as well. We officially have “The Breakfast Club meets super-heroism” in the latest addition of Power Rangers!

power rangers movie cast

Much of the series is the same. The Power Rangers are still defending Angel Grove, they still have their dino-themed zords (The Tyrannosaurus, Mastodon, Triceratops, Sabertooth Tiger, and Pteradactyl), Zordon, and Alpha 5. However, Rita, Goldar, and the Putty Patrol are bigger, badder, and deadlier than ever. This time around the The Power Rangers are a freshly chosen team of recruits brought together by mischief and happenstance rather than true friendship. Just as they learn of their amazing new powers, Rita Repulsa, a former Ranger a resident villainess, has been reanimated a hungry for the power of The Zeo Crystal; a rock that apparently ceded Earth with the ability to create life. It is up to the Rangers to overcome their own insecurities and teenage angst to stop Rita from retrieving the crystal and destroying all life on Earth.
