President Trump Responds To Debra Messing, Eric McCormack Calls For Outing Emmy Week Fundraiser Attendees
Update: Debra Messing has responded via Twitter to President Trump and others who accuse her of Joseph McCarthy style tactics in her call for identifying and shaming donors to Trump’s re-election.

Using her own tweetstorm, Messing addressed Trump’s earlier comment that he hasn’t forgotten her obsequious behavior when his TV show The Apprentice was doing well. She used a combination of her own tweets and responses from others to fight back.

A sample of Messing’s comments:

Who have I donated to?@HarleyRouda @RepKatieHill @AmyMcGrathKY @kaikahele @KamalaHarris @JulianCastro @harrisonjaime

Anyone running against Susan Collins.

And others.

‘P-Valley’ Casts Thomas Q. Jones; Bria Henderson Joins ‘Mrs. America’
Thomas Q. Jones (Luke Cage) is set to recur opposite Brandee Evans and Nicco Annan in Starz’s P-Valley, Katori Hall’s strip club drama based on her play Pussy Valley. Created by Hall, who also showruns, the drama is set deep in the Mississippi Delta, where lies an oasis of grit and glitter in a rough patch of human existence where beauty can be hard to find.

Dolph Lundgren in New Trailer for Zombie Action Film 'Dead Trigger'

"They're everywhere!" Saban Films has released a new trailer for a terrible-looking zombie action film titled Dead Trigger, based on the mobile game of the same name first published in 2012. The film premiered in 2017 but is only now getting a release, and it's obvious once you see this footage why no one has touched it - despite Lundgren. When an unstoppable zombie apocalypse takes over the world, the government develops a video game, called "Dead Trigger," that mirrors the terrifying events plaguing the planet. The best efforts of the gamers are monitored, and they recruit the highest rated zombie killers. The young recruits are called “Dead Triggers”. This follows a group of recruits who travel to the origin of the outbreak to find a missing team of scientists searching for a cure. This stars Dolph Lundgren, Autumn Reeser, Romeo Miller, Isaiah Washington, Chris Galya, and Justin Chon. Looks even worse than so-bad-it's-good.

Could Izzie Ever Return to Grey's Anatomy? Here's Why We're Not Ruling It Out

  • Popsugar
Avid fans of Grey's Anatomy know that some of the biggest character exits were the culmination of some serious behind-the-scenes drama. And one of the most notorious exits in the history of the show was that of Izzie Stevens, aka Katherine Heigl. Heigl infamously did not leave on good terms, and it seems like the waters between her and creator Shonda Rhimes are still choppy. But, hey, it's never too late to forgive, right? And one recent interview with Camilla Luddington has us wondering if that's exactly what could happen.

In a recent interview with People, Luddington was asked what she thought of a Heigl return. "I actually think it's kind of a fun idea. . . . I just think it'd be juicy; it'd bring maybe a little bit of drama." Considering the fact that Jo and Alex only just tied the knot in the season 14 finale, this would be just the
