Damon Wayans Jr to stay on in 'New Girl'


The actor will continue playing one of the characters in the sitcom's latest season.

New Girl has fallen back in love with original castmember Damon Wayans, Jr.

The actor's guest star run on the show has been extended through the remainder of the current season, a Fox representative told TheWrap. Wayans was originally signed on to guest star as Coach for four episodes.

His first episode aired on Tuesday in the United States.

The estranged former roommate returned with a macho attitude and had no memory of Jess (Zooey Deschanel). Fans will remember that Wayans starred on the series pilot and the first episode before leaving to star on ABC's Happy Endings.

Wayans played Brad on all three seasons of Happy Endings. His credits also include writing and appearing on My Wife And Kids and The Underground. ­— Reuters

Kylie Jenner slammed over tweet


The teenage model's post about being 'bipolar' is deemed insensitive, among others.

Kylie Jenner might want to think before she tweets next time. At least when it comes to making frivolous references to mental illness.

The 16-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has come under fire after tweeting that she's "bipolar", in reference to a change in her hair colour.

"I miss my black hair I'm so bipolar :(", Jenner tweeted along with a photo of her newly dark tresses. The comment didn't sit well with a number of Twitter users.

"Kylie Jenner just tweeted 'I miss my black hair I'm so Bipolar'. No, you're not 'so Bipolar', you're indecisive ... and a moron," one user tweeted.

"@KylieJenner that was 100% the dumbest and most ignorant use of the word bipolar," another fumed. "kylie jenner with her 'i'm bipolar' makes me sick," another member of the Twitter community hissed.

Jenner has not yet responded to the backlash on her Twitter account and has not removed the tweet.

A spokesman for the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) in the United States called Jenner's tweet "inappropriate" and "insensitive", but added that there might be a teachable moment to be salvaged from the flap.

"She's 16. It's an inappropriate, insensitive expression, but it reflects the need for greater education and understanding about mental illness among all teens. Particularly because most mental illness emerges by age 14," NAMI spokesman Bob Carolla told TheWrap.

Suggesting that Jenner could learn from the organisation's Bipolar Disorder Fact Sheet, Carolla further said that Jenner could help to inform others about the condition. "When a celebrity unintentionally sticks a foot in their mouth or offends someone, it's best to apologise and then show sincerity by trying to make amends," Carolla told TheWrap.

"She could make a contribution by learning from the criticism and devoting some effort now to help educate peers. But she has to educate herself first." — Reuters

Eva Longoria to play a mother


The actress will lend her voice to an animated series that focuses on motherhood.

US star Eva Longoria has lent her voice to animated television series Mother Up! with a character struggling with the challenges of motherhood.

Longoria is also an executive producer of the 13-episode series, which debuted Wednesday on online video websites Hulu and Hulu Plus.

Longoria's character Rudi Wilson is a former New York City music executive who finds herself hopelessly ill-equipped to handle her two children as she resettles in suburbia without her husband or nanny.

"She may not be suitable for children. Eva Longoria is the new mom in town, and she has no idea what she's doing," a Hulu advertisement warned.

Rudi's awkward approach to rearing her five-year-old girl Apple and nine-year-old son Dick is also subjected to the sly criticisms of competitive mums as she tries to make new friends and date.

Mother Up! is a 13-episode series that is available for viewing online.  

"I'm not a mum. But my character represents a lot of those fears that I would fear about being a bad mum. Rudi's trying," Longoria said in a Hulu video.

Co-creator Katie Torpey said, "We're exposing the truth about what's happening and what's really going on for mums."

Longoria, the former star of the hit TV show Desperate Housewives, has since produced television shows Devious Maids and Ready For Love.

A philanthropist, she was also an executive producer of The Harvest (2010), a documentary about the estimated 500,000 child migrant farm workers in the United States. — AFP Relaxnews
