“My heart 🖤 is full of gratitude to all of you for rockin’
with us every season. You made us HBO’s highest rated comedy for years and most
importantly, you helped create and sustain a platform for other actors to have
the OPPORTUNITY to work hard, grow and become household names. To me, the
opportunity Ballers created for so many others, is the real gold of our show.
I love you, I thank you and enjoy our final season of
This SUNDAY on @HBO. @SevenBucksProd”
The show deals with the unspoken side of life for many football
players and retired ones. The Rock plays Spencer Strasmore, a retired pro
football superstar who works as a financial manager for active players.
In the 5th season, Spencer gets an offer to
become a team owner, while Joe tries to take Sports X to the next level after
Spencer leaves. Ricky deals with an unfamiliar situation and has to reinvent
himself and Charles deals with the outcomes of being a general manager.
The 47 years-old legend posted the news on his Instagram
account and shared a photo with over 150 million fans worldwide.
He captioned the known phrase “We Do” while publishing a
photo of them wearing white. The couple have been dating since 2008. They met
on the set of his movie ‘The Game Plan’ in 2006 while Johnson was still married
to his first wife, Dany Garcia. Johnson and Garcia divorced in 2007.
Martin says that he isn’t willing to change what he already
planned for the rest of the series and adding that the show’s ending won’t affect
his book’s ending.
In an interview with The Guardian, George was quoted that the
show’s end wasn’t “very good” for him – “No, it doesn’t. It doesn’t change
anything at all … You can’t please everybody, so you’ve got to please yourself…”.
Fans all over the world already signed a petition to recreate the 8th
and final season of the show, so it seems like the fans are on the same page with
The 70-year-old Martin lamented to The Guardian that the
show and his new-found celebrity actually slowed down his writing. Martin said
that the production of the show on HBO slowed his writing – when the show started
he had 5 books already written, but couldn’t manage to finish the last 2 books
of the series. He added – “The very thing that should have speeded me up
actually slowed me down. Every day I sat down to write and even if I had a good
day … I’d feel terrible because I’d be thinking: ‘My God, I have to finish the
book. I’ve only written four pages when I should have written 40.’”
He also separated himself from the complaints online and from
all the fans theories – “I took myself out of all that … some of [the theories]
are right and some of [the theories] are wrong. They’ll find out when I finish”.
George also said he lost his willingness to interact with fans
– “I don’t want to go to a party where an unending succession of people want to
take selfies with me. Because that’s not fun the way it was in the old days.
He continues to share his experience – “I mean, I can’t go
into a bookstore any more, and that used to be my favorite thing to do in the
world. To go in and wander from stack to stack, take down some books, read a
little, leave with a big stack of things I’d never heard of when I came in. Now
when I go to a bookstore, I get recognized within 10 minutes and there’s a
crowd around me. So you gain a lot but you also lose things.”
According to a report, DeMarcus Cousins, the Los Angeles
Lakers’ center torn his ACL.
The reports started to get in early on Thursday (by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski) stating that the center bumped his knee with an opposing player during a training session in Vegas and that he left the training with an injured knee. The final test showed that Cousins suffers from ACL.
It seems like Cousins can’t break out of his bad luck. In 2018, in the last year of his contract, Cousins suffered from an Achilles injury (which considered one of the toughest injuries in basketball) while playing in New Orleans. Last summer, after teams didn’t offer him contracts, he signed with the Golden State Warriors. At the beginning of the playoff Cousins tore his quad and managed to get back to the finals where the Toronto Raptors won the series.
This summer, many teams didn’t show any interest in him so
he signed a minimum contract with the Lakers. Cousins, 4 X All-Star, was
expected to be a key piece in this Lakers team but now might miss the entire season.
The Lakers are allowed to cut Cousins if his return time
will be after June 15th.
We hope DeMarcus will get back stronger than before.
In order to have a healthy lifestyle, Ben Green who weighed
350 pounds loses almost half of his body weight, an eyepopping 140 pound(!!)
and achieved his goal and became a runner.
After dealing with health issues for over 20 years, Ben
decided to take control over his life. He says – “I had been obese since I
was 11-years-old and have had to deal with health complications for 22 years. My
mobility was suffering and I had to wear ankle supports all the time. I was in
Green says he turned to food as a solution to deal with stress.
Ben added – “We were getting passed between parents and getting treated
all the time. We didn’t ever sit down for a family meal. My Nan lost her life
because of obesity. She became bed-bound and spent her last year unable to do
anything but lie on her sofa because of her mobility and pain.”
As expected he used to be bullied in school – “I got
punched in the face on my first day of secondary school. There have been times
where people have wound down car windows to shout abuse to me.”
Ben explains: “You think, as a man, that it’s just for
women – but as soon as I walked through the doors my eyes were opened. There
were pictures of men and stories about men who had lost weight – and I wanted
to be like them.”
His results are pretty amazing – lost 140 pounds, over 1.15
feet in his chest and 1.8 from his waist.
Green shares: “I always dreamed of being a runner, of
crossing the finish line and getting a medal. I lost four stone in 10 weeks and
that have me a huge confidence boost and I noticed my pain was going. When I’d
lost six or seven stone I stopped using my ankle supports. My ambition was that
I wanted to break the cycle of premature deaths in my family because of
obesity. I wanted to educate my children in healthy eating and how to have a
healthy lifestyle. Now, they cook with me in the kitchen and they love to help
me prepare meals.”
Home Alone became a classic instantly when it was released
almost thirty years ago.
‘Home Alone’ franchise included 5 movies –
released in 1990
released in 1992
released in 1997
The TV film was released in 2002
released in 2012
Although most fans thought this franchise finished his way,
Disney announced that they decided to remake ‘Home Alone’ along with other
classics such as ‘Night at the Museum’ and ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’.
This new project is expected to be released on Disney+.
Also, in the announcement, Disney used the word ‘reimagine’ which sounds like it might not be a total remake but just making the movie look better.
