“Riverdale” Stars Cole Sprouse And Lili Reinhart Split After 3 Years of Dating

After a nearly three-year romance, Riverdale co-stars Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart have called it quits. The couple — who star in the CW teen drama series as Jughead Jones and Betty Cooper — are reportedly quarantining separately after splitting up. A source said that Sprouse, 27, and Reinhart, 23, are often on-again, off-again, but are currently not together.

The pair began dating in 2017 and have been fighting breakup rumors during the course of their relationship. Sprouse and Reinhart have frequently stepped out together, and first made their red carpet debut at the 2018 Met Gala.  However, the couple have been reclusive about their romance when it comes to interviews and social media.

Disney+ Short ‘Out’ Is Pixar’s First Release With Openly Gay Lead

Now available on Disney+ is the latest installment of Pixar’s Spark Shorts series.  Out is the first project from the animation studio to feature an openly gay main character. 

The nine-minute short film follows the story of Greg, who struggles to come out to his parents ahead of his move to the city. When they show up suddenly in a surprise effort to help him pack, he magically switches bodies with his dog and tries to hide evidence of his relationship with his boyfriend, Manuel. 

Disney has been making very small advancements in terms of representation, but has received criticism for appealing to more conservative markets. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker featured the franchise’s first ever same-sex kiss at the end of the film, and the company did reveal that The Eternals will feature the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first openly gay superhero. 

Watch the trailer for Out at the link: here

Hilary Duff Responds To Child Sex Trafficking Allegations

Hillary Duff is shutting down reports involving one of her children. The former Disney star found herself trending on Twitter for baseless allegations regarding her participation in child sex trafficking. The rumors stemmed from a since-deleted Instagram post that showed Duff’s 8-year-old son, Luca Cruz, lying down without any clothes, and a subsequent Instagram video where the 32-year-old actress addressed the photo, which was eventually censored. “Someone pointed out on Instagram that I did a nude of him, which I did,” Duff said while showing off her family photos, “so we covered that up with [a] sticker.”

Countless fans immediately jumped to Duff’s defense, however a number of Twitter trolls continued to insinuate the picture in question was proof she was participating in child sex trafficking. Duff called the allegations disgusting and condemned the individual who started the rumor.

Duff shares Luca with her ex-husband Mike Comrie, whom she divorced in 2016. She also has a 1-year-old daughter, Banks Violet Bair, with husband Matthew Koma.

CBS Picks Up John Krasinski’s YouTube Series ‘Some Good News’

Millions have tuned into John Krasinski’s show Some Good News on YouTube, which he started from his home during the pandemic. Now, Krasinski has announced he sold Some Good News to ViacomCBS, and he won’t be the host.

Krasinski started SGN after questioning why there isn’t a news network dedicated to good news only. He produced eight free episodes on YouTube, including an Office reunion/surprise wedding, a Hamilton performance, online graduations, and a virtual prom, all with famous surprise guests. 

Krasinski tweeted following the announcement: “Wow, who can believe when we started this thing together we all just wanted good news to be more fully represented in our everyday lives. And now? You quite literally ARE the good news! Thanks to you, SGN lives on, joining the ranks of this historic news network! See you all soon!” Krasinski will continue to serve as an executive producer and make cameos on SGN, but he won’t host; as of press time, a new host has not yet been named.

In the eighth — and possibly final — episode that aired last week, Krasinski announced that “we’re taking a break for now, but there is more to come! Stay tuned.”

Ruby Rose Announces Exit From ‘Batwoman’ TV Series

Ruby Rose has announced she was leaving the CW drama series ‘Batwoman’ and would not appear in season 2. 

Rose said in a statement: “This was not a decision I made lightly as I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew, and everyone involved with the show in both Vancouver and in Los Angeles. I am beyond appreciative to Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Caroline Dries for not only giving me this incredible opportunity, but for welcoming me into the DC universe they have so beautifully created. Thank you Peter Roth and Mark Pedowitz and the teams at Warner Bros. and The CW who put so much into the show and always believed in me. Thank you to everyone who made season one a success – I am truly grateful.”

Rose was cast as the titular character/Kate Kane in 2018 for the Arrowverse crossover. Rose then signed on for the stand-alone Batwoman series shortly after, which saw her portray the first LGBTQ superhero to lead a live-action TV show. 

Season 2 of Batwoman was renewed for a second season earlier this year and was set to premiere in January 2021; however, series production was expected to be delayed amid the coronavirus pandemic.
