‘The Bachelor’ finale: Colton’s wild ride leads to a happy ending with Cassie; Hannah B. is the next Bachelorette

ABC/John Fleenor(NEW YORK) — In part one of The Bachelor‘s season 23 finale, Colton broke up with Tayshia and Hannah G., choosing to lay it all on the line for Cassie. In part two, the gamble paid off — and one of his former suitors, Hannah B., was revealed as the next Bachelorette.

The episode opens where the first part left off — with Colton showing up at Cassie’s hotel room. When he tells her about all that’s happened over the past 48 hours, she’s both shocked and flattered, but no less confused.

Colton tells Cassie that this time, he’s not just “telling” her he loves her, but “proving it,“ reiterating his original offer of “not asking for marriage at the end of this,” but rather “a second chance to take things day by day and figure it out.”

Cassie eventually agrees to give the relationship another shot, and they go to meet Colton’s family in Mallorca, Spain

Colton greets his family with the news that he’s no longer a virgin, which turns out to be a lie. He also prepares them for the fact that rather than the two ladies they were expecting to see, it’s just Cassie, with whom he’s still “working things out.” That raises concerns from his parents, who are worried that Colton may be heading for another heartache.

After a round-robin of conversations with Colton and Cassie, the folks are still on the fence. That doesn’t deter Colton, who says he would rather have his heart broken again than lose Cassie.

The next day, the couple heads out on a date, which includes a picnic at the foot of a seaside cliff. However, getting there will take a literal leap of faith — they’ll have to rappel their way down to the site using roles. At the bottom, Cassie reveals the reason behind her fear of commitment. She tells Colton about a past relationship in which the guy was very “controlling.” The memory of that is so “ingrained” in her memory, she’s been hesitant about committing in subsequent relationships.

Colton assures Cassie that he wants her to live her life, adding that they can have their own hobbies, interests and friends, but come together at the end of the day. That’s good enough for Cassie, who says that more than ever, she feels how much Colton loves her and is “starting to kind of accept it.”

The date ends with dinner and a trip to the Fantasy Suite, where the two spend an “amazing” night together. They do “what’s best for their relationship” and “grew as a couple,” leaving Colton feeling like “a new man.”   Exactly what that mean in terms of Colton’s virginity, we may never know. The most Colton will say is, “A gentleman never kisses and tells.”

At the finale after party, the couple told host Chris Harrison that engagement is “Definitely something we talked about,” but for now, they’re just “super in love.” Harrison tried one more time to find out what happened in the Fantasy Suite, but Colton said he would rather keep that a mystery: ”I know I’ve been open and candid about my virginity,” he explained, “but since there are now two of us, it’s something we are going to keep to ourselves.” Harrison replied, “I’ll take that as a ‘yes.’”

The couple then danced to a live performance by Air Supply, singing their 1983 hit, “Making Love Out of Nothing at All.”   

As previously mentioned, Harrison also revealed the identity of the next Bachelorette, which, to almost no one’s surprise, is Hannah Brown — a.k.a Hannah B.

Brown’s season of The Bachelorette, the show’s 15th, premieres May 13 on ABC.

Felicity Huffman’s bail set at $250,000 in college admissions bribery scandal

Felicity Huffman inside the Edward R. Roybal Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Los Angeles March 12, 2019; DAVID MCNEW/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — A Los Angeles judge Tuesday night set bail for actress Felicity Huffman at $250,000 for her alleged part in a college admissions bribery scandal, dubbed Operation Varsity Blues, revealed earlier in the day.

According to charging documents, the former Desperate Housewives star, who’s married to Shameless actor William H. Macy, “made a purported charitable contribution of $15,000 … to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter.”

Huffman appeared in court in person with her husband and surrendered her passport, with the judge ordering that her travel be restricted to the U.S.  Macy isn’t named in the charging documents.  Huffman’s next court date is March 29.

Also in court Tuesday night was fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, who’s the husband of former Full House star Lori Loughlin.  The charging documents say the couple “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the [University of Southern California] crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”  Federal agents obtained emails from Loughlin implicating her in the scam, according to the documents.

Bond for Giannuli was set at one million dollars.  He also was ordered to surrender his passport and return to court March 29.  Loughlin was shooting a movie in Canada and at last word was flying back to Los Angeles.

Those indicted in Operation Varsity Blues allegedly paid bribes of up to $6 million to get their children into elite colleges, including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Southern California, federal prosecutors said.

Bob Saget wants you to check out ABC’s ‘Videos After Dark’ — after the kids are in bed

ABC/Eric McCandless(LOS ANGELES) — After Tuesday’s finale of The Bachelor on ABC, stick around for a sneak peek of Videos After Dark, hosted by original America’s Funniest Home Videos host, Bob Saget.

Saget tells ABC Radio he wants families to watch Videos After Dark and have some laughs, but warns “put the kids to bed” first, because the show is for older family members.

“It’s an edgier show,” says Saget. ” It’s got, you know, little kids, all of the sudden they say something that gets bleeped and they’re two, and you’re wondering, ‘what’s going on?’ And then all of the sudden, you know, there’s a flame thrower and a turkey and the house catches on fire and you’re like, ‘god!’

Maybe he’s exaggerating, a little.  Adds Saget, “The most important thing to me is before people go to bed is laugh. And it is at other people’s expense, but they sent the tape in.” 

The Videos After Dark sneak peek airs Tuesday at 10 p,m. ET, following The Bachelor season 23 finale on ABC.

Jussie Smollett appears in court for hearing; Cameras allowed for future hearings

Chicago Police Department(CHICAGO) — Actor Jussie Smollett returned to court in Chicago Tuesday morning, days after he was charged with 16 felony counts related to that alleged hate crime hoax. 

This court hearing comes a few days ahead of the Empire actor’s Thursday court date, when he is expected to enter a formal plea on 16 counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report. 

Smollett had claimed he was the victim of a brutal hate crime at the hands of supporters of President Trump in Chicago early in the morning of January 29. But after a thorough investigation, police declared it a hoax, and that Smollett hired two brothers, Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo, to carry out the fake attack. 

On Monday’s Good Morning America, Osundairo brothers’ attorney Gloria Schmidt said the brothers felt betrayed by Smollett. 

“They worked with Jussie, they had known him, they were friends with him,” Schmidt said. “This was someone who the brothers thought could help their career.”

Schmidt said that the brothers have evidence to back up their claims. “That’s why when they went from ‘persons of interest’ to suspects. They are free men and they are at home,” she said.

As previously reported, after Smollett reported the alleged attack, police identified and questioned two “persons of interest” captured on surveillance video near the scene around the time of the incident. The brothers were arrested on Feb. 13 but then released without charges, with police saying they were no longer considered suspects.

After Smollett’s arraignment, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson told reporters that the “phony attack” was “orchestrated” by the actor “to boost his profile” amid “a salary dispute.” 

Smollett, who still maintains his innocence, is due back in court this Thursday, March 14th at 9am.

Bye, Idris! David Oyelowo is ready to become the first black James Bond

ABC/Rick Rowell(LONDON) — After Idris Elba had the nerve to decline becoming the first black James Bond — and even made light of it during his Saturday Night Live hosting gig — another black British actor has decided to step up to the plate.

In an interview with The Times UK, David Oyelowo said he’s be open to fill the shoes of the iconic 007 role.

“The significance of someone like me playing a role like James Bond is not lost on me,” he said. “It is going to be something that will expand horizons.”

He continued, “One of the most beautiful things I have seen in America on Halloween is white kids running around in Black Panther costumes.”

Taking a moment to reflect on his own childhood, Oyelowo added, “I did not have a superhero to identify with growing up on a council estate in Islington. It was all Superman.”

If he were to be cast as the suave super-spy, this wouldn’t be the first time that Oyelowo made history in his acting roles. The Selma actor became the first black actor to play an English king in productions of Henry VI, parts I, II, and III by the Royal Shakespeare company.

Now, looking ahead, Oyelowo says becoming James Bond could easily become a reality today.

“When I was at drama school, the idea of a Black James Bond was so far removed from everyone’s thinking,” he said. “We are talking about real progress. Society is beginning to tell the industries what they want to see.”

Actresses Felicity Huffman, ‘Fuller House’ star Lori Loughlin, indicted in multi-million dollar college admissions scam

ABC/Image Group LA(BOSTON) — Hollywood actors — including Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin — and a slew of chief executives are among 50 people charged in a nationwide college admissions cheating scam, according to court records unsealed in Boston Tuesday.

Those indicted allegedly paid bribes of up to $6 million to get their children into elite colleges, including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Southern California, federal prosecutors said.

“Beginning in or about 2011, and continuing through the present, the defendants…conspired with others to use bribery and other forms of fraud to facilitate their children’s admission to colleges and universities in the District of Massachusetts and elsewhere…” read the indictment, which was obtained by ABC News.

In most cases, the students did not know their admission was contingent on a bribe, officials said.

According to the charging papers, Desperate Housewives Emmy winner and Oscar nominee Huffman — who is married to Emmy winner and Oscar nominee William H. Macy — “made a purported charitable contribution of $15,000 … to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter.”

“Huffman later made arrangements to pursue the scheme a second time, for her younger daughter, before deciding not to do so,” the documents allege.

Federal agents secretly recorded telephone calls with Huffman and a cooperating witness, according to the court papers.

The documents say actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”

Federal agents obtained emails from Loughlin implicating her in the scam, according to the documents.

The feds had cooperating witnesses within the academic community who helped build the case.

A new whole new world: Disney conjures a trailer for its live-action ‘Aladdin’

Walt Disney Pictures(LOS ANGELES) — Over, sideways and under, the first full trailer of Disney’s live-action adaptation of the animated classic Aladdin is finally here.

The preview debuted as as an exclusive world premiere on Good Morning America Tuesday.

The film promises to be a visual spectacle, giving us a viscerally vivid depiction of the world we thought we knew in 1992, when we were first introduced to this unforgettable cast of characters.

Mena Massoud stars as Prince Ali, joined by Naomi Scott as the fierce and unstoppable Princess Jasmine, alongside Will Smith as Genie and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar.

The trailer opens with a dramatic parkour chase filled with twists and turns through the streets of Agrabah. Time and space seem to halt as our favorite street rat unknowingly meets Princess Jasmine for the very first time.

We’re introduced to a villain who, it’s clear, doesn’t make his real intentions known to our hero. And, of course, we find a genie, who may be the key to everyone’s futures.

Shot in both London and Jordan, the film adaption will also include new recordings of the movie’s original songs written by Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, plus two new songs written by Menken and Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who wrote the songs for La La Land and Dear Evan Hansen.

The original animated film grossed more than $502 million at the global box office when it premiered in 1992, leading to successful stage productions on Broadway and abroad as well as a North American touring company.

Disney’s live-action adaption of Aladdin opens in U.S. theaters nationwide on May 24.

‘The Bachelor’ finale recap, part one: Emotions run high as Colton declares, “I’m done with this”

ABC/Craig Sjodin(NEW YORK) — So where did Colton Underwood head to after jumping the hotel fence last week and running off into the night? We found out Monday on part one of the two-part Bachelor finale.   

Monday’s episode began with host Chris Hanson and his crew finally tracking down Colton, who had just been rejected by Cassie, and convincing him to go back to the hotel. After a long conversation, Colton tells Hanson that despite Tayshia and Hannah G. both expressing their love for him, Cassie was the one who “shut my heart off.” He decided he wasn’t going to let Cassie walk away without a fight.

The next day, he shows up at Tayshia’s door and tells her that while she’s “incredible,” his heart belongs to Cassie. They disappear behind her hotel room door where, incredibly, Tayshia, who is in the midst of getting dumped by Colton, ends up consoling him. “So this is, like, it?” she finally asks, to which Colton replies, “Yes.” Reality finally begins to set in as Tayshia rides off in tears.

At the live finale party, Tayshia and Colton faced each other for the first time since the breakup. After pointing out the “amazing moments” they shared together — bungee jumping, setting off a lantern in Thailand, and skydiving — she wants to know, “What was missing?” Colton answers that there was nothing wrong with their relationship, but regarding Cassie, his heart was simply “closed off” and “completely hers.”

Meanwhile, Hannah G, having no idea of what has transpired over the past couple of days, waits excitedly for her chance to spend a night with Colton in the Fantasy Suite. But she gets a gut punch when he arrives at her door and he gives her the same speech he gave Tayshia. “I thought it was going to be you,” he tells Hannah, adding “You still remind me of home.” Hannah doesn’t let Colton off the hook as easy as Tayshia did, and says she doesn’t want to leave Portugal without him. He tells her, “You shouldn’t be anybody’s back-up plan.”

“Good luck,” Hannah says, as Colton leaves the room. As she enters the van waiting to take her to the airport, she snaps, “I don’t want to talk about it.” Colton seems to be taking the split even harder, once again sobbing uncontrollably outside the hotel, wondering if he’s given away “a for sure thing for something that’s impossible.”

Back at the live finale, Hannah had another emotional encounter with Colton after pressing him about a particular moment from last Monday’s episode, in which he told Cassie that when he’s with the other women, he’s only thinking of her. “I’d be lying if I said it didn’t feel like a slap in the face when you told Cassie when you were with her you thought about other people,” she says. “It sucked.”

When Hanson asks Colton whether it was something he really felt, or if he only said in the height of passion, Colton answers, “Yes, that was something I felt.”

The action then returns to Portugal, where Colton is seen working up the nerve to give another try to saving his relationship with Cassie, thought it seems she’s already made up her mind. As Cassie packs her things, she tells the camera that while she’s sad to break up with Colton, she’s just not ready to make a commitment.” All she wants right now is to be “back home with my family and get on with my life.”

The episode ends with Colton knocking on Cassie’s door. The camera breaks away, leaving us with the sound of the door opening and Colton saying, “Hey.”

The Bachelor season 23 finale concludes Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
