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.

Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith is coming clean about one of her past addictions … she says she couldn’t stop watching PORN before starting a relationship with Will Smith.

Jada made the stunning revelation in Monday’s “Red Table Talk” episode … opening up about her “unhealthy relationship” with porn and saying she couldn’t get enough adult videos when she was single and trying to practice abstinence.

The 47-year-old actress started talking porn with her daughter, Willow, and mother, Adrienne Banfield Norris, at the start of the show as they were all getting ready together backstage … gotta be an awkward convo for any family.

Willow asks her momma if her porn fixation came from an emotional place … and Jada says that’s exactly what happened. Jada, who’s been married to Will for almost 22 years, says she was feeling an emptiness when she got hooked on porn.

Monday’s talk was about the effects of porn on relationships … and Jada says she used to watch some hardcore videos she says were “profoundly disturbed.”

Nipsey Hussle’s Sister Keeps Custody of Daughter, Baby Mama Pissed

Nipsey Hussle

Nipsey Hussle’s daughter, Emani, will not go back to her mother … and the mother is livid.

Tanisha Foster was in court Monday, trying to regain custody of her 10-year-old girl. Emani has been living with Nispey’s sister, Samantha, since his death last March.

Nipsey’s family was in court and squared off with Tanisha, whom they believe is not fit to care for Emani. The hearing was sealed … but there’s another date scheduled in July.

Tanisha’s lawyer, Larry Lewellyn, tells TMZ he’s working with Nipsey’s family on a visitation schedule that will be in Emani’s best interest.

As for Tanisha … she left the courtroom crying and told us she’s “pissed off.”

We broke the story … Samantha believes Emani’s biological mother is unfit to care for the 10-year-old, and Samantha played a crucial role in helping raise her when Nipsey was alive. Samantha wrote in her petition that she wants to “ensure the continued stability for Emani and ensure that she will be able to maintain her current and ongoing relationship” with her fam.

Emani’s mother, Tanisha, broke down crying in court last week, saying she hadn’t seen her daughter in months. At the time, the judge gave them about 20 minutes alone together.

Still … Nipsey’s sister might have a strong case in asking for guardianship. Tanisha has a warrant out for her arrest right now, relating to an unsettled DUI case in 2017. She’s also got a lengthy rap sheet filled with arrests dating back to 2006 and 2007.

Nipsey has another child with Lauren London — a son named Kross — but he’s obviously staying with his mom. No issues there.

Rihanna Confirms Upcoming Reggae Album in New Interview

Published

Rihanna

With Rihanna confirming plans for her ninth studio LP earlier in 2019, the Navy is stalking RiRi’s every move. The 31-year-old sat down with the Times’ T Magazine for an interview conducted by playwright Jeremy O. Harris in London, which touched on her trailblazing Fenty collaboration with LVMH, the highly anticipated forthcoming album, and much more.

The multi-hyphenate says she remains hard at work on a reggae album, which remains without a release date, and admitted to be leaning toward R9 for the project’s title since that’s all she hears from fans. “So far it’s just been R9, thanks to the Navy,” Rihanna stated. “I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this ‘R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?’ How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull?”

RiRi would then go on to debunk a few internet forum rumors regarding possible star-studded collaborations on the horizon. There isn’t anything finished with Lady Gaga, but she wouldn’t rule something out for the future. “Maybe because she followed me on Instagram. It’s not in the books right now, but I’m not against it,” she said.

Rihanna also doesn’t see herself reuniting with Drake for the foreseeable future. “Not anytime soon, I don’t see it happening. Not on this album, that’s for sure,” she declared. The Anti artist then pondered the idea of one day releasing a greatest hits album. “I don’t know what my favorite album is — I’m sure if I put all my favorite songs together, it would be a really sick album. Maybe I should do that one day,” RiRi teased.

Items from her first Fenty/LVMH collection will debut through the Fenty online shop starting on May 29. “I want to be as disruptive as possible,” Rihanna explained of her business model. “The brand is not traditional. There is no runway show. It’s a new way of doing things because I believe that this is where fashion is going to go eventually.”
