    Rozie Perez Admits to Initially Turn Down 'The Flight Attendant' Over Flying Anxiety

    HBO Max

    During an appearance on ‘Good Morning America’, the actress playing lonely air stewardess in the new HBO Max series thanks co-star and producer Kaley Cuoco to convince her otherwise.

    Nov 30, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Rosie Perez tested her fear of travelling while making Kaley Cuoco’s new HBO Max series “The Flight Attendant”, after initially turning the role down.
    The actress plays a lonely air stewardess in the jet-setting comedy drama, which takes off this weekend, and admits producer and star Kaley had to beg her to take the part.
    “I initially turned down the offer, as stupid as that can be, and Kaley wouldn’t accept no for an answer,” Perez tells “Good Morning America”.
    The two actresses met and Rosie told “The Big Bang Theory” standout, “I can’t stand travelling; I hate flying”.
    But the veteran fell in love with Cuoco’s enthusiasm and decided to take a chance on the show, which was shot on location all over the globe.

    “The material was so undeniable it would be stupid for me to just let my anxiety about flying turn it down and she just cemented the deal,” she adds. “She’s an amazing person.”

    Her travel anxiety melted away as she bonded with the cast and crew and reveals the project handed her a dream-come-true moment at the Vatican in Italy during a day off.
    “When we got to the square they had a Jumbotron… and the Pope comes out and we all look up and someone yells out, ‘Hey, you’re on the Jumbotron’,” she chuckles.
    According to the official synopsis, “The Flight Attendant” is a story of how an entire life can change in one night. A flight attendant (Kaley Cuoco) wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man – and no idea what happened. The dark comedic thriller is based on the novel of the same name by New York Times best-selling author Chris Bohjalian.
    “The Flight Attendant” premieres on HBO Max Thursday, November 26.

    'RHOP': Karen Huger Leaves Her Own Party After Being Confronted Over Monique Samuels Invite

    Instagram

    The 57-year-old Bravo personality’s launch party takes a dramatic turn as she decides to walk out of it early and it has something to do with her inviting Monique to the event.

    Nov 30, 2020
    AceShowbiz – A new beef has been born on “The Real Housewives of Potomac”. In the Sunday, November 29 episode of the Bravo reality show, the ladies gathered for the first time following their dramatic trip to Portugal. However, the event was equally dramatic as host Karen Huger walked out of her own event and it had something to do with Monique Samuels.
    The episode saw the Housewives attending Karen’s party to celebrate the launch of her new wig line. Prior to that, Ashley Darby and Monique met up for lunch. At the time, Monique revealed to Ashley that she’d been invited to Karen’s launch party, saying, “She’s been asking me all weekend to come and I told her if I do come, I can come early — [she’s] obviously going to invite [Candiace Dillard] and I want to support [her], but I’m not ready to be in the same space as Candiace.”
    Ashley was surprised with the revelation because back during the cast trip to Portugal, Karen said that she didn’t invite Monique to her event. She then called Karen, asking her to confirm her remarks about Monique. However, the LaDame fragrance founder denied ever saying that. “I don’t remember that … It’s people twisting my words,” Karen insisted.

    Meanwhile, Gizelle Bryant said in a confessional that she wouldn’t attend the bash. “I will not be attending Karen’s wig party because of her business partner, Steven, the dude that talks about me real bad on social media,” she said, calling out Karen’s creative director for the wig line. “And this is not even your business, it’s his business.”
    True to her words, Monique arrived at the event 30 minutes earlier. She wasn’t there for too long because when Candiance texted Karen that she was on the way, Monique decided to just go home.
    Later that night, Ashley confronted Karen about Monique. “Monique made it clear that you did invite her to come. And then Monique herself suggested, ‘Well, maybe I should come to set up.’ Why isn’t she here right now?” asked Ashley. To that, Karen angrily responded, “We have guests here. I’m going to ask you to be respectful. So I’m going to get ready and enjoy the rest of my evening. And thank you all for coming. Okay? Thank you.”
    After grabbing her husband’s hand, Karen announced her departure and walked out. “I have warned these women … I am leaving the party because I’m simply embarrassed and I’m tired of this. It’s unacceptable. It looks stupid,” Karen admitted in a confessional. Baffled, Dr. Wendy Osefo said, “How do you leave your own party the moment you get called out? Hello, welcome. Thank you for coming to this bulls**t.”

    The CW Shuts Down 'The Flash' Season 7 Production Following Positive COVID-19 Test

    The CW

    While it remains to be seen whether the one who contracts the disease is one of the cast or the crew, the report states that the person is asymptomatic and self-isolating.

    Nov 30, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Another TV show has been affected by COVID-19. It has been reported that The CW halts production on season 7 of “The Flash” in Vancouver after a team member tested positive for the novel virus. Deadline is the first one to report.
    While it remains to be seen whether the one who contracts the disease is one of the cast or the crew, the report states that the person is asymptomatic. The report further claims that the person is currently self-isolating.
    Sources also add that the studio is currently evaluating adjustments to the production schedule so that they can resume filming without the affected employee and those who had close contacts with the person. Season 7 filming of “The Flash” initially resumed on October 1 as the new season is set to debut on February 23, 2020.
    This is not the first time for “The Flash” to make adjustment due to COVID-19. The network cut short season 6 because of the pandemic. For the first time in “The Flash” history, a season ended without the titular DC superhero defeating its main antagonists.

    In season 7, the Scarlet Speedster, who is played by Grant Gustin, will be seen continuing his adventures without the Elongated Man as actor Hartley Sawyer was fired back in June due to racist tweets. As for Danielle Panabaker, the actress, who is currently on maternity leave, is scheduled to return in the latter part of season 7.
    “After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton). With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight),” read the official synopsis for season 7.
    The synopsis continued, “Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team–and his marriage–apart.”
    “The Flash” joins other TV production which was paused over COVID-19 concern. Prior to this, CBS All Access’ “Why Women Kill”, Apple TV+’s “Mythic Quest”, ABC’s “Call Your Mother”, Amazon’s “Bosch, TNT’s “Claws” and HBO’s “The Gilded Age” were among the TV shows which production was forced to get shut down. Also getting affected by the widespread virus were Netflix’s “The Witcher”, “Dear White People” and “Vikings: Valhalla”, NBC’s “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago Med, Fox’s “The Resident”, Peacock’s “Rutherford Falls”, ABC’s “For Life”, CBS’s “Young Sheldon” and Disney+’s “Big Shot”.

    “We apologise. It was never our intention to make light of Selena’s health,” they told Us Weekly. “We have been in touch with her team and will be making a donation to her charity, The Selena Gomez Fund for Lupus Research at USC.”

    The scenes prompted a new hashtag, #RespectSelenaGomez, which started trending on Twitter, with fans of the “Wolves” singer taking to the platform to express their anger.
    Francia also addressed the situation, writing on her own page, “Appreciate the apology but let’s not forget about the donors that potentially felt offended and dismissed from the spray paint written on the wall.”
    “As a kidney donor I want to show love and let other donors know that you are not alone. You are seen. You are appreciated. You are so brave and your selfless act is very much appreciated and valued!”
