Bijou Phillips Apologizes to ‘Mean Girls’ Star Daniel Franzese Over Gay Shaming

Bijou Phillips Apologizes to ‘Mean Girls’ Star Over Gay Shaming

EXCLUSIVE

Bijou Phillips is apologizing to a “Mean Girls” star for bullying him over his sexuality.

Actor Daniel Franzese went after Bijou recently, claiming, “She body shamed me and ridiculed me about my sexuality and physically assaulted me” on the set of the 2001 movie, “Bully.”

He says she loudly and repeatedly asked him in front of others if he was gay, and when he said he was bi, she followed up the next day by screaming, “Oh look! The Bi guy is here!” He says she, on a different occasion, grabbed his nipple and “twisted it hard through my shirt and laughed,” and at one point during filming kicked him in the head so hard he still is not sure if he had a concussion.

Bijou tells TMZ, “I want to write to address what Daniel has said. I don’t remember that time well, those years are a blur. I was a teenager and reckless in my behavior. I know Daniel to be a trustworthy and honest person, and to find out through social media that I was not the friend I thought I was to him made me so sad.”

Bijou goes on … “I am so mortified by this behavior and have contacted Daniel and apologized to him privately. I am not and never have been homophobic. I have nothing but love for the LGBTQ community and Daniel.”

Daniel tweeted Sunday night that he has received and accepted her apology.

Christopher Plummer Addresses Replacing Kevin Spacey in ‘All the Money in the World’

Christopher Plummer Addresses Replacing Kevin Spacey in ‘All the Money in the World’

Christopher Plummer No Regrets Taking Kevin Spacey’s Role

EXCLUSIVE

The guy replacing Kevin Spacey in a movie that’s supposed to be released in about a month is surprisingly at ease about pulling off an unprecedented cinematic move.

We got Christopher Plummer Sunday in NYC where he was attending the premiere of one of his own upcoming flicks, and asked if it was a difficult decision to accept the role in Ridley Scott‘s “All the Money in the World,” after Spacey got the ax last week

From the way Chris responds, it doesn’t sound like he has any qualms about taking the gig away, even though he was mum on reaching out to the beleaguered actor. 

As for that looming release date of December 22 — Chris might as well have quoted OutKast … ain’t no thang.

Meagan Good Talks Gal Gadot’s ‘Wonder Woman’ Ultimatum

Meagan Good Talks Gal Gadot’s ‘Wonder Woman’ Ultimatum

Meagan Good Gal Gadot’s ‘Wonder Woman’ Ultimatum It’s About Being A Bigger Person

EXCLUSIVE

Meagan Good doesn’t see anything wrong with someone’s conscience making them walk away from a great opportunity or potential millions in Hollywood. 

We got Meagan leaving Mastro’s Steakhouse in Bev Hills Sunday night and asked her about Gal Gadot saying she’d bail on a “Wonder Woman” sequel if Brett Ratner didn’t drop out as an executive producer amid all his sexual harassment allegations. The first “Wonder Woman” film grossed over $800 million worldwide, and Gal was negotiating a huge pay raise for the second film.

While the “White Famous” star says she’s not familiar with Gal’s situation, it’s clear whose side she’s on.

The Mindy Project Was the Rom-Com We Never Knew We Needed

The Mindy Project Was the Rom-Com We Never Knew We Needed

“Can we just watch TV? We have the rest of our lives to argue.”

Meet the new happily ever after: happily ever right now. The Mindy Project ended its six-season journey (which is the right word for it: passed over by NBC, debuted on Fox, ended on Hulu) on Tuesday, bringing the epic saga that was Dr. Mindy Lahiri’s love life to a fittingly clumsy close. 

When it first premiered in 2012, The Mindy Project introduced us to Mindy as she was acting like a hot mess at her ex’s wedding, eventually getting arrested for drinking while biking. Now, six seasons later, Mindy is once again on a bike, but this time, she doesn’t end up at the bottom of a swimming pool or behind bars; she ends up as the Sandra Bullock of her own life on her own terms.

Of course, it wasn’t surprising that Mindy and Danny (Chris Messina, never better or better-looking than with his graying beard) ultimately ended up together, set to spend the rest of their lives affectionately bickering. We all know how TV shows and end game works. But the twists and turns of their journey often caught us fickle TV viewers off-guard, largely because most romantic comedies don’t often show what comes after the big kiss or grand gesture.

Fortunately for us, The Mindy Project lives (and thrives) in the after, showing just how hard, messy and awkward a relationship can be. It’s the ultimate love letter to rom-coms, a genre Kaling has a clear affection for, making her snarky-yet-still-hopeful take on all the standard conventions of the genre even more clever…and Mindy and Danny’s relationship all the more frustratingly realistic.

“So much of everything is the wedding plot, or the marriage plot, which is just get to the wedding and then happily ever after, and I think that there’s so much interesting stuff that can happen after,” Kaling told us in February 2016. “These are people who are very, very different, who would have not chosen to be together trying to make it work. And that sounds really serious and not fun but I think we have made it some of the finest stuff ever because it’s just really real.”

The couple’s relationship was sped up after Mindy learned she was pregnant in season three, pretty soon after she and Danny decided to quit the will-they-or-won’t-they bulls–t and do the damn thang, with the new parents learning they had very different ideas and values when it came to raising a child.

“People can change, but they can’t change that much. And I think that especially when you’re in a relationship and especially when there’s a kid involved,” Kaling explained to us. “Relationships get hard when there’s a kid when beforehand there would not have been any issues because of the different ways on how to raise a kid and what that kid’s life should be, so it’s like the character is showing his true self a little bit and it’s so in opposition to our lead. It’s challenging and it’s really real.”

And the challenges were too much for the couple to face, leading to a breakup and ill-fated marriages to different people for both.

Mindy Kaling, The Mindy Project

A romantic at heart, the finale proved that sometimes a little change is enough for a huge shift. Viewers were furious that back in season five Danny wanted Mindy to stop working and become a full-time mother. (If you find that shocking, please come spend time with my Irish Catholic family soon!)

However, in the series finale, Danny played a key role in Mindy’s practice remaining open, no strings attached, because he realized he was wrong and Mindy could do things on her own terms. She could, in fact, have it all. (Just don’t ask him to turn off Blue Bloods, OK?)

For a character that started off the series by criticizing Mindy’s weight, this is a huge step. Sure, viewers were often so charmed by Messina’s charisma (and dances moves…and red reading glasses…and gingerbread-house-making skills) they often forgot who Danny really was at his core. (Though his decision to basically abandon Mindy and Leo to go across the country and take care of his father was a bit of a head-scratcher.)

Danny’s absence in seasons 4-6 (due to Messina’s film schedule) gave the show the chance to explore something rarely seen on TV: a single mother casually dating and it was something Kaling once defended in a tweet in 2016, writing, “People ask where Mindy’s baby is when I’m on a dating story. He’s off playing w/the children on male-driven comedies no one ever asks about.”

Kaling elaborated on the criticism when talking to E! News, saying, “We don’t expect a man to take care of his child. They have freedom that they can do whatever and the nanny will be taking care of it…And on our show, the character is such a caring mother and she has disposable income, she’s a doctor. And the father’s in the picture. And yet, you still hear people ask where the father is. And it’s one of those things that is one of the most openly sexist things that no one really knows that they’re saying that.”

(In a possible case of life imitating art, Kaling announced she was expecting a child in August 2017, and has yet to publicly reveal her baby’s paternity.)

Still, a romantic at heart, Mindy ultimately did find her happy ending, but she found it even before her reconciliation with Danny, realizing she didn’t need a husband to have a fulfilling life, a concept the Mindy of seasons past would’ve shot down faster than a free juice cleanse. 

And so Mindy and Danny did end up finding their imperfectly perfect happy ending…at least until it’s time to decide what to get for dinner.

The Mindy Project is available to stream on Hulu.

Conor McGregor Tells Haters ‘F**k Yous All’ in Response to Ref Incident

Conor McGregor Tells Haters ‘F**k Yous All’ in Response to Ref Incident

Conor McGregor ‘F**k Yous All’ … Responds to Ref Incident

Breaking News

Conor McGregor is explaining why he “lost it” at an MMA fight in Dublin on Friday — saying the ref had no business trying to throw him out of the cage.

He also offered up a “f**k yous” to all of his critics.

You remember the incident — Conor illegally scaled the cage at Bellator 187 after his training partner, Charlie Ward, won by knockout … and EXPLODED on veteran UFC ref Marc Goddard for breaking up the party. He slapped a regulatory official square in the dome too.

After the fight, everyone was asking the same question — why did Conor go batsh*t insane?

McGregor tweeted (and then deleted) early Monday morning, saying:

“Bloke KO’d on floor bout a minute straight and ref trying to say fight’s not over, Conor. That’s when I lost it. F**k yous all.”

So, what happens next? Will McGregor be disciplined for getting physical with multiple officials?

We’ve reached out to the UFC to see if they’ll take action. Stay tuned …

Why Drew Scott Is Shocked He’s in the DWTS Finals

Why Drew Scott Is Shocked He’s in the DWTS Finals

Drew Scott and Emma Slater wanted to make a splash during their two dances in the Dancing With the Stars semifinals.

“We wanted it to be epic,” Emma said. Those epic moments included the Property Brothers star revealing his kilt (and giving a little flash)—”First kilt ever on the show,” Drew said—and a gravity-defining spin that saw Drew lifting and spinning Emma.

“We wanted to end it on a high,” Emma gushed.

“We had to go big,” Drew said. “Our philosophy too is we got to go big or we got to go home.”

How do they top it all in the finals?

“Hey, what if you swing me in circles,” Drew joked.

With the final performances ahead, Drew said he can’t focus right now.

“Honestly, I’m shocked,” he admitted. “To be here—when I started this competition you have your dreams of how you’re going to do, but to actually be here and I just thought there’s no way when you see the talent.”

The Dancing duo will take time to celebrate, but then it’s right into the finals planning, despite the fact they never thought they’d be in the running this late in the competition.

“I’ve never danced before,” Drew asked, “so how can you expect to be in the finals of something?”

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays, 8 p.m. on ABC.
