How This Is Us Ended After Six Seasons

“That’s what we’re doing, collecting these little moments,” Jack said. “We don’t recognize them when we’re in them because we’re too busy looking forward. Then we spend the rest of our lives looking back trying to remember them, trying to be back inside them.”

Back at his mother’s funeral, Randall struggled to remember the wise words of his father.

“It all just feels so pointless,” he told his own daughters. “I spent my entire childhood worried about losing her. Spent the last decade abjectly terrified of it. Now she’s gone, and yet the birds chirp on. I notice that I’m hungry. Five minutes ago, I thought about work. Tomorrow I’ll shower. It just all feels so pointless.”

In Randall’s despair, however, came a rebirth. His daughter Deja (La Trice Harper) told her father that she was having a boy, and that she’d be naming him William, after Randall’s biological father.

After the memorial service, the Big 3 sat down together one last time and plotted out their futures: Kate wanted to commit herself to creating music schools for the visually-impaired, Kevin wanted to focus on his non-profit and, with his mother’s legacy in mind, Randall vowed to jump head first into his Presidential campaign.

Fried Oreos or bust.

This Is Us Creator Compares Finale Moment to Sopranos

An ending fit for Tony Soprano!

After six seasons with the Pearson family, This Is Us came to a close on May 24. In a press conference for the NBC drama series, creator Dan Fogelman compared one specific part of the finale to the infamous ending of The Sopranos—where Tony Soprano sits in a diner with his family, when a possible hit man enters the restaurant with the scene cutting to black. 

So, you can understand our confusion when Fogelman compared the loving family drama with the HBO mob hit. Nonetheless, the creator said that “Randall’s political journey ahead of him” could be comparable to the open-ended twist of the Sopranos series finale.

In the This Is Us‘ series finale, Randall (Sterling K. Brown), who is now a senator, decides to head to Iowa following a request by the Democratic National Committee. Fogelman explained that the unknown surrounding Randall’s political career “is probably the closest we come in the show to Sopranos going to black at the end of the episode.”

“You’re left to choose your own adventure as to what you think happened with him,” he continued. “I think it’s up to the audience to decide what they think happens next with Randall.”

Wynonna Judd Vows She’ll “Continue to Sing” After Mom Naomi’s Death

Naomi Judd‘s legacy will continue to live on through Wynonna Judd‘s voice.

In an Instagram post shared on May 24, Wynonna not only revisited her past promise that she will continue to sing after her mother’s death but made good on the vow by releasing a new collaboration with Waxahatchee.

“In the midst of everything that has happened, I said that I would continue to sing,” Wynonna wrote. “So, here I am.”

Wynonna explained that the new track bloomed after she met Katie Crutchfield, the singer who founded the solo musical project Waxahatchee.

“I met @waxa_katie last year and we connected immediately,” she wrote. “We recorded ‘Other Side’ in the studio here on the farm and it was one of my favorite recording experiences ever. I’m thankful for the opportunity to sing with the next generation of greatness.”

The song comes nearly a month after Wynonna and her sister, Ashley Judd, shared the devastating news that their mother had passed away at the age of 76.

Olivia Munn Thanks Mindy Kaling for “Invaluable” Mom Advice

Olivia Munn isn’t experiencing late nights with her son Malcolm thanks to wise words from fellow mom Mindy Kaling.

On May 24, the Magic Mike actress gave a shout-out to the former The Office star in an Instagram post celebrating the last six months with Malcolm, who she shares with boyfriend John Mulaney. Sharing a photo of herself cuddled up with the smiling newborn, Olivia wrote, “6 months ago today Malcolm made me his mama. It’s so much fun getting to know him.”

When went on to note that Malcolm “sleeps through the night 12 hours straight” and thanked Mindy—who is mom to 4-year-old daughter Katherine and 20-month-old son Spencer—for “sharing your invaluable, trusted and vetted resources.”

Elsewhere in her post, she credited Jimmy Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney as the reason behind Malcolm trying peanut butter for the first time.

Ant Anstead Addresses Claim He’s Trying to “Take Away” Son

Ant Anstead is not letting fans steer to conclusions on social media.

The Celebrity IOU: Joyride star set the record straight on his parenting stance after someone brought up his ongoing custody battle with his ex Christina Haack over their 2-year-old son Hudson. When Ant posted a photos and videos of his two oldest children—15-year-old son Archie and 18-year-old daughter Amelie, who he shares with his first wife Louise Storey—on May 22, an Instagram user commented, “Don’t take away Hudson from his Mum you will never forgive yourself Ant.”

In response, Ant wrote, “huh? “who told you that?”

“That’s the LAST thing I want!” he continued, before cautioning the fan to not fall for any “click bait” they may read online.

The comment comes almost a month after Ant, 43, filed for full custody of Hudson from Christina, 38. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Ant—who finalized his divorce with the Flip or Flop alum in June 2021—is seeking full custody of Hudson, with Christina receiving alternating weekends with their son.

CBS Pulls FBI Finale Amid Fatal Texas School Shooting

Hours before air, CBS made the decision to pull the May 24 season finale of FBI.

The episode, titled “Prodigal Son,” was set to focus on a school shooting, which the network felt hit too close to home following a gunman opening fire at a Uvalde, Texas elementary school May 24. The tragedy killed 14 children and one teacher, according to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.

“As the team investigates a deadly robbery that garnered a cache of automatic weapons for the killers,” the episode’s description read, “they discover one of the perps is a classmate of Jubal’s son, who is reluctant to cooperate with the case.”

In its place, the network will air an FBI episode from earlier this season. At this time, CBS does not plan to pull the spinoffs FBI: Most Wanted or FBI: International—both of which are set to air finales—from the May 24 schedule.

FBI, which is currently airing its fourth season, was renewed for an additional two seasons on May 9. The show, which centers on the New York criminal division of the FBI, stars Missy Peregrym, Zeeko Zaki, Jeremy Sisto, Alana De La Garza, John Boyd and Katherine Renee Turner.

Kailyn Lowry Announces She’s Leaving Teen Mom 2 After 11 Years

The Teen Mom family is saying goodbye to one of its own.

During the May 24 reunion episode of Teen Mom 2, Kailyn Lowry announced that she is leaving the show after 11 years.

“I think I need to move on,” she told co-hosts Dr. Drew Pinsky and Nessa. “I think I need to do my own thing. I think this needs to be my farewell. I think I’m ready.”

While Dr. Drew didn’t expect to say goodbye to Kailyn during the reunion taping, the mother of four reiterated that it was time for a new chapter. “I think that we should part ways,” she said. “I think this should be the end.”

Before Kailyn’s segment came to a close, Dr. Drew gave credit to the former 16 and Pregnant star for sharing her story and helping lead a decline in the birth rate among United States teenagers. “You helped do that,” he told her.

Kailyn replied, “I hope so. I hope I had a small part in that.”

Kailia Posey’s Mom Details Toddlers & Tiaras Star’s Final Days

Before you can move forward, sometimes you have to look back. 

Earlier this month, Toddlers & Tiaras star Kailia Posey died by suicide at the age of 16, forever changing her mom Marcy Posey Gatterman‘s life. 

“The days and weeks leading up to this, it seemed fine to me,” Marcy exclusively shared with E! News. “I didn’t go through her phone. For prom, she went with a bunch of friends. And the next day, everything was fine.”

However, everything seemed to change on May 1. Kailia—who recently made the cheerleading squad and was named runner-up in the Miss Washington Teen USA pageant—asked her mom to pick up deodorant from the store, claiming she needed it for school the next day. Just minutes after Marcy headed out to run the errand, she said Kailia left the house with one of the family’s cars. She sadly wouldn’t see her again.

Walmart Apologizes For Releasing Juneteenth Ice Cream

There’s plenty of screaming over this ice cream. 

Walmart‘s Great Value line recently released a Juneteenth-themed ice cream, which hasn’t sat well with consumers. The product, branded as “Celebration Edition: Juneteenth Ice Cream,” was decorated with the Pan-African colors and described on the label as a swirled red velvet and cheesecake. The frozen desert’s label read, “Share and celebrate African-American culture, emancipation and enduring hope.”

Following backlash online—with one twitter user saying, “Nobody asked for some Juneteenth ice cream. Not one person.”—the retail store released a statement to E! News apologizing for the sweet treat. (After all, as one user slammed, this is “why it’s important to hire diverse perspectives.”)

“Juneteenth holiday marks a celebration of freedom and independence,” Walmart said. “However, we received feedback that a few items caused concern for some of our customers and we sincerely apologize. We are reviewing our assortment and will remove items as appropriate.” 

Amid the criticism, some are using the viral moment to encourage shoppers to purchase from Black-owned companies instead.
