Ryan Murphy’s ‘Hollywood’: Tighty-Whities, Rock Hudson and a ‘Revisionist History’ of Show Biz

WEST HOLLYWOOD (Variety) — Spoiler alert for a few plot lines and scenes from the first two episodes of “Hollywood.” Netflix hosted a sneak peek of Ryan Murphy ’s “Hollywood,” a seven-episode series for Netflix , on Sunday night at the San Vicente Bungalows in West Hollywood.

Without giving away too many spoilers, the show takes place in post-WWII Hollywood. David Corenswet stars as Jack, an aspiring actor who becomes a call boy in a prostitution ring run by a slimy gas station owner (Dylan McDermott).

“I would say that it is almost a revisionist history of Hollywood,” Laura Harrier , who plays a Dorothy Dandridge-like character dating an aspiring director (Darren Criss), told Variety . “I love to think about what the world could have looked like had we been able to […]

‘RuPaul Drag Race’: Sherry Pie Disqualified After Catfishing Scandal

'RuPaul Drag Race' Contestant Kicked Off Show After Catfishing Scandal

(TMZ) — ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ has laid down the hammer on one of their current contestants after a catfishing scandal came to light … and he copped to it himself.

Sherry Pie — who’s real name is Joey Gugliemelli — was disqualified from filming the rest of season 12, according to the official ‘ RuPaul ‘ Twitter page. The tweet reads, “In light of recent developments and Sherry Pie’s statement, Sherry Pie has been disqualified from RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

They continued, “Out of respect for the hard work of the other queens, VH1 will air the season as planned. Sherry will not appear in the grand finale scheduled to be filmed later this spring.” It’s pretty crazy … only two episodes of the new season have aired thus far.

Sherry has been introduced as a “big, loud Broadway dame” who considers herself the “Queen of camp.” A majority of the filming is presumably complete for Season 12, but ‘RuPaul’ usually films a live reunion/finale episode, and brings everyone back for it.

Sounds like Sherry won’t be though … it’s unclear how far along she made it in the show, but it appears VH1 will air the season as is, and simply won’t invite her back for any further participation.

The reason Sherry got the boot … at least 5 men have come forward to accuse Sherry/Joey of catfishing them over the years — allegedly posing as a casting director and asking them to submit explicit videos of themselves in degrading acts. One guy says he was asked to masturbate on camera, and he agreed.

Sherry addressed the controversy on Facebook, apologizing for the past behavior and announcing she was getting help and treatment. Not good enough, apparently … so long.

Pete Davidson absent from ‘SNL’ after controversial interview

(Page Six) — Pete Davidson was noticeably absent from an installment of “Saturday Night Live,” which comes a few short weeks after the 26-year-old comedian criticized the late-night series in a sit-down with Charlamagne tha God.

Davidson, who joined the cast of “SNL” in 2014, recently ignited a storm of controversy after discussing his experience on the NBC show, stating, “I’m literally painted out to be this big dumb idiot.”

“I personally think I should be done with that show because they make fun of me on it,” he said in the interview, which was posted on YouTube in late February.

Last week, Davidson skipped the “SNL” afterparty at L’ Avenue at Saks. Friend John Mulaney, who hosted the show on Feb. 29, […]

Elizabeth Warren Makes Surprise Appearance on 'SNL' with Kate McKinnon

(TMZ) — Elizabeth Warren looked herself in the mirror on a Saturday night … actually, she was just looking at Kate McKinnon who was playing her on SNL, and it was pretty funny.

The Massachusetts senator took the stage and first answered questions from Kate, who was playing FNC’s Laura Ingraham, who debriefed Warren on her exit from the race and the endorsement everyone wants to hear.

Then, as Warren thanked her supporters — various school teachers and teacher’s pets — Kate changed outfits and came out as EW.

It was pretty funny, but the reality is this … Warren’s support could sink Bernie Sanders . Her views are closer to Bernie’s than Biden ‘s, but she’s made it clear — she has issues with Bernie and she came within a hair’s breadth last week of endorsing Biden.
