Published

on

Listening to the pleas of fans, AMC has asked mega-fan Yvette Nicole Brown to take over moderating The Walking Dead panel at Comic-Con later this month.

While the cabler hasn’t said anything publicly yet, Deadline has learned that the Talking Dead regular and Mom actor will replace long time TWD SDCC panel host Chris Hardwick on July 20. Hardwick was accused of emotional abuse and sexual assault by an ex-girlfriend last month. A frequent presence at the San Diego confab, the early afternoon panel for TWD and spinoff Fear The Walking Dead is Brown’s Hall H moderating debut for the AMC shows.

Details are still being finalized but the 11:15 – 1:15 gathering in the San Diego Convention Center’s biggest venue is expected to include Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Norman Reedus, FearTWD’s Kim Dickens, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo and Lennie James plus EPs Gale Anne Hurd, Robert Kirkman and new TWD showrunner Angela Kang among others. If past years are any indication also expect to learn the premiere date of the new season of TWD and see a sneak preview of what is expected to Lincoln’s final year on the show.

Though Hardwick denies the allegations from Chloe Dykstra, the Talking Dead frontman decided to “step aside” from his TWD and Doctor Who SDCC moderating duties on June 16, AMC announced After remaining mum for a few days, the cabler also said at the time that “while we assess the situation, Talking with Chris Hardwick will not air on AMC.”

The decision came at the 11th hour as Season 2 of Talking with Chris Hardwick was set to premiere on June 17.

Brown’s pick as TWD moderator for SDCC can now only raise speculation that the ex-Community actor will end up as the host of Talking Dead when it returns this fall along with Season 9 of TWD.

Jordyn Woods says she will “Always have love for Kylie”

Published

on

Jordyn Woods is hesitant to come right out and say it, but the message is very clear … she’s still got love for Kylie Jenner.

Jordyn and her mom, Elizabeth, were at LAX Thursday when we asked Jordyn if the support she’s received from Jada Pinkett Smith and family helped her through her ordeal with the Kardashian-Jenner fam … she tells us it’s bigger than that. Much bigger.

It gets real interesting, though, when our guy asks if she hopes to rekindle her friendship with Kylie — she gives a rather broad answer … before Mom comes to the rescue.

Check it out for yourself … Jordyn eventually says she’ll “always” love her former BFF, but it takes some coaxing. Her mother’s much more direct.

Regardless, Jordyn’s fallout with Kylie has only made her more popular. Girl’s signing autographs and posing for pics everywhere she goes … even when it’s not a celebrity hot spot.

IRS set to audit Lori Loughlin and her husband over college admissions scandal

The hits just keep coming. Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, who are facing up to 40-year-prison sentences if found guilty of their alleged involvement in the nationwide college admissions scandal, will now be audited by the IRS.

According to the source, the twosome allegedly wrote off William “Rick” Singer’s reported scam services as a deduction. “They are being audited for five years on their personal income taxes, along with three years for Mossimo’s business,” the insider reveals.

The When Calls the Heart actress, 54, and the fashion designer, 55, pleaded not guilty to charges of fraud and money laundering on Monday, April 15, after previously rejecting a plea deal that included a two-year minimum prison sentence.

“Her attorney told her not to take the deal,” a source said earlier this month about Loughlin’s decision.

Legal coach and crisis manager Wendy Feldman explained in April that the actress and designer had “no choice but to plead not guilty.”

“They missed the opportunity for a plea bargain during the first round, and now there might not be a deal available for them to take,” she said.

The actress previously seemed to be “in denial” about her situation, and recently started to accept her reality. “Lori is constantly arguing with Mossimo, because she is beginning to grasp that they are in very serious jeopardy,” the source also added, “She  has tried to hire new lawyers.”

The pair were indicted after allegedly paying Singer a bribe of $500,000 in order to have their two daughters, Bella, 20, and Olivia Jade, 19, represented as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team, despite the fact

that neither girl participates in the sport, ensuring their entrance to the school.

Mossimo was arrested on March 12 along with actress Felicity Huffman, who pleaded guilty to charges of fraud on April 8, while Loughlin was taken into custody on March 13. Both were released the same day of their arrests on $1 million bonds.

There were also armed guards standing outside the building where Thursday’s procession will end.

That procession will be preceded by Nipsey’s Celebration of Life, hosted at Staples Center for 21,000 fans, family and friends. As we reported … the free tickets were gobbled up within minutes and AXS, which handled ticket distribution, says it’s cracking down on scalpers.
