Suits Has Been Axed

Published

on

Suits, the slick American legal series that introduced the world to Meghan Markle, has been axed. A statement released by TV network SYFY confirmed that the forthcoming ninth season will be its last, running at 10 episodes long.

Markle, who played legal secretary Rachel Zane, departed the show at the end of the seventh season – ahead of her marriage to Prince Harry – along with co-star Patrick J. Adams, who played her love interest Mike Ross. The pair had been leading characters since the start of the series and were firm fan favourites.

While no specific reason for the show’s axing has been given, many are speculating that Suits struggled to find its footing following their departure; according to reports, season eight averaged at 1.2 million viewers, a drop of 100,000 from season seven. However, viewing figures have been slowly declining since the start of the show; the first series aired with an average of 4.6 million viewers in 2011.

“Suits has played an instrumental role in our network’s DNA for nearly a decade,” said Chris McCumber, president of USA Network and SYFY. “I and everyone at USA Network sincerely thank Aaron Korsh, our partners at UCP and the entire Suits family for their tremendous creativity, devotion and support over a truly amazing run.”

Following her departure from the show, Markle appeared to remain close with her Suits co-stars, with several of them attending her royal wedding back in May.

The new Duchess of Sussex spoke about her time on the show during her first joint interview with Prince Harry in November 2017.

“I see it as new change, a new chapter. I’ve been working on my show [for] seven years, we were so fortunate to have that longevity, and I feel like I checked that box and am very proud of the work I’ve done there,” she said. Recent reports that the duchess had been offered millions – to donate to a charity of her choice – to film a cameo appearance were swiftly denied.

But there’s no need to mourn the show just yet. The second half of the eighth season (which welcomed Katherine Heigl to the firm) starts tonight, with the final series expected to air next year. There’s also a spin-off show to look forward to, Pearson, starring former Suits favourite Gina Torres as Jessica Pearson.

Maroon 5

Maroon 5’s smash hit featuring Cardi B, “Girls Like You,” caught a lot of attention for its cameo-filled nature, featuring the likes of Camila Cabello, Ellen DeGeneres, Gal Gadot, Jennifer Lopez, Behati Prinsloo and more.

Not only did the song skyrocket in popularity (reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100), so did the video. In less than 10 months, the music video surpassed 2 billion YouTube views.

“I have two young daughters, and to think about them being mistreated at all — ever — made my blood boil,” Adam Levine recently told Variety of the tune. “So we went for it because I felt that as long as I stayed close to my heart with this concept, I could never go wrong. … In the video, I was doing it for my kids and my wife. If anyone doesn’t understand the intentions, f— ’em.”

The band took to Facebook to thank everyone for watching. See the announcement, including the music video, above.

“Worthless Man, Imbecile” : Tonto Dikeh Throws Shade At Her Ex-Husband

Published

Tonto Dikeh’s has thrown shade at whom many believe is her ex-husband, Churchill Oladunni.

She took to Instagram yesterday to write different cryptic posts which included the statement “A Tonto Dikeh’s has thrown shade at whom many believe is her ex-husband, Churchill Oladunni.

She took to Instagram yesterday to write different cryptic posts which included the statement “A worthless man is always a worthless man”.

This comes after he granted an interview, debunking her claims that he squatted with her when they started dating.

He said;

You mean squatting? This is ridiculous. Before I met the Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, I was already one of the most successful young millionaires in Africa.

I met her at a nightclub, during my brother’s birthday party in 2014 and it was about the same time I acquired the latest Benz cars. Three months after we met, she got pregnant.

I have never really stayed in Nigeria for too long, because I do business in Ghana, although I have an office at Ikoyi. She visited me in Ghana several times and when she broke the news of her pregnancy three months into the relationship, I decided to visit her in Nigeria. I had to visit her often, because she was carrying my child.

I have never squatted or lived with her and the only time we stayed together was after the birth of my son, which came with the approval of her parents, after I had completely satisfied the traditional requirements for her dowry.

I flew her to the United States to deliver my child in one of the best hospitals in America.

She stayed at my family house in London few months after delivery, before she returned to Nigeria. On her arrival, I had already prepared a well-furnished exquisite apartment for us – this was the first and only times we lived together until the divorce. We only lived together for six months.

Still on the issue of squatting, it will interest you to know that Tonto will never marry or date a man who lacks prospects or is unsuccessful. She likes to live the life. We broke up in 2016 at a house I newly acquired for my mother in Lekki, Lagos State.
Our marriage was plagued with several frivolous claims of falsity, ranging from domestic violence to false allegations and all what not. I never laid my hands on her. I have never done that in my life before. She made up those things to discredit my philanthropic works. I am from a proper disciplined Yoruba home.
