Jeffrey Epstein Autopsy Results Show Suicide By Hanging

His mysterious death while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking had spawned multiple conspiracy theories, though officials had suspected suicide early on. Epstein was found unresponsive Saturday morning in his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan.
Experts said the bone is more easily damaged though, including by hanging, in older people such as Epstein, who was 66. A preliminary autopsy report on Thursday indicated that various bones in his neck were broken, including one near the Adam’s apple called the hyoid bone. Damage to that particular bone is more common in cases of strangulation, a fact that fueled speculation all week.
He had been put on suicide watch following a July 24 incident in which Epstein was found with injuries to his neck.

According to The New York Times, the staff did not follow protocols leading up to Epstein’s death. Reports had surfaced this week that the guards who were assigned to Epstein’s cell were working “extreme overnight shifts” to make up for staffing shortages the morning of his apparent suicide.
Greg Evans and Dino-Ray Ramos contributed to this report.
The chief medical examiner of New York City has ruled that Jeffrey Epstein, the well-connected jailed financier and accused child sex trafficker with ties to many powerful people, died of suicide by hanging.
Attorney General William Barr said Sunday that he was "appalled" by Epstein's death and said federal investigations were underway.
He had pleaded not guilty. Epstein, who has ties to Presidents Trump and Clinton, was arrested on July 6 for alleged involvement in a sex-trafficking ring involving underage girls and a collection of child pornography.

Judith Krantz Dies: Best-Selling Author And Journalist Was 91 Years Old

         Lovers (1994)
Krantz’s novels were historically accurate, thanks to countless hours of research about the people, places and historical eras in which she set her books. Her heroines were working women exploring choices and opportunities largely unavailable to women in their day. Female empowerment, achievement and artistry were themes in her novels, decades before this era.
In recognition for her many years of support, the Los Angeles Public Library has named the Judith Krantz Fiction Collection in her honor.
         Dazzle (1990) (adapted as a 1995 miniseries)
She passed away from natural causes on June 22 in her Bel Air, California home at age 91. Judith Krantz, whose novels have more than 80 million copies in print, has died.
         I'll Take Manhattan (1986) (adapted as a 1987 miniseries)
Krantz was born Judith Tarcher on January 9, 1928 in New York City, the eldest child of an advertising executive and an attorney. After growing up in New York City where she graduated from the Birch Wathen School at age 16, she enrolled at Wellesley College, graduating in 1948.
         The Jewels of Tessa Kent (1998)
There she met her future husband, film and television producer and writer Stephen Falk Krantz. They were married for 53 years, with Steve Krantz dying in 2007. In 1953, Krantz attended a Fourth of July party hosted by her high school friend Barbara Walters.

Los Angeles, CA  90071
Princess Daisy set the record for the highest price ever paid for a novel at the time. Her second novel, Princess Daisy, as well as many of her other novels also became #1 New York Times bestsellers in hardcover and paperback.
Krantz began writing fiction only after her husband kept insisting that she was a natural storyteller. Krantz turned 50 the year that book was published, a remarkable beginning to her second act in life. In 1977, never having written fiction, she completed her first novel, Scruples.
But it was the strong women she wrote about that captivated her audience in a whole new way. Although hugely popular worldwide, Krantz’s novels had a rare combination for commercial fiction: intelligence, complex characters, intricate plots and a wicked sense of humor. Her books received wide-spread critical acclaim while being addictive reads for her millions of fans.
Seven of her novels were adapted for television as miniseries, with her husband serving as executive producer for most of them. She also wrote one original miniseries for television, Judith Krantz's "Secrets", in 1992. More than 80 million copies of her books are in print in over 50 languages.
I also love Proust and Colette.” It's a chocolate eclair. I loved it myself.” And when asked about her favorite periods in literature, Krantz responded with, “My favorite period is the Victorian. About Scruples, she told the New York Times, “My novel gives women a big bubble bath. It's the kind of novel people love.

Krantz is survived by her son, Tony, daughter-in-law Kristin Dornig Krantz, and son Nicholas.
It took four months for Scruples to reach the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list. Talking to the Los Angeles Times, she said, “Halfway through the first chapter, I felt I was flying without wings.” Krantz was known to write 10,000 words per week, keeping a rigorous, disciplined daily writing schedule.

Rooftop Films, Port Authority Team For Screenings At New York’s World Trade Center

The mix of narrative and documentary films includes one short about the 9/11 Memorial Pools. This Thursday night, June 20, a selection of new, independent short films made by New York filmmakers at Liberty Park will screen.
Liberty Park plaza, on the site of the former Twin Towers destroyed in the September 11 attacks, will be the setting for the four screening programs, which all revolve around distinctly New York themes.
In honor of Pride Month, Rooftop Films will next present a screening of You Don’t Nomi, Jeffrey McHale’s documentary analyzing Paul Verhoeven’s camp classic Showgirls, on Thursday, June 27.
Rooftop Films, which has been turning an eclectic range of urban spaces into screening venues since 1997, and the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey are teaming to present free movies this summer at the World Trade Center site.
“Rooftop Films events are more than just outdoor film screenings,” said Dan Nuxoll, Artistic Director of Rooftop Films, which recently unveiled a screening program at LA's The Grove. For this reason, we’re excited to be presenting screenings in such an iconic and historic New York location, and we look forward to working with Liberty Park and the Port Authority to create memorable and entertaining cultural events in lower Manhattan.” “When we curate each of our programs, we consider the neighborhood, community, architecture, live performances, and the themes of the films, striving to create experiences that change the way that our audiences think about the movies and change how they think about their city, about the locations in which the films are shown.
Doors open at Liberty Park at 7:15 PM. The documentary feature explores New York City facing the inevitable consequences of global warming and sea level rising. On July 26, Rooftop Films and the Sundance Institute will present a program of new narrative, documentary and animated shorts culled from last January's Sundance Film Festival. And on August 20, Brett Story’s The Hottest August will screen.
“We are delighted to host such a wide variety of activities planned for this summer at the World Trade Center campus as we continue our efforts in making this site a welcoming space for those who live, work or visit lower Manhattan,” Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton said. “We hope that everyone enjoys this cultural mash-up planned this summer.”” />

Five New York Anchorwomen Sue Charter Communication’s NY1 News Channel Over Age And Gender Bias

"We have poured our hearts and souls into our work at NY1, but in the end we have been left excluded, marginalized and vulnerable. We are fighting for ourselves and all other women who face this same struggle on a daily basis, and we hope to send a clear message to all news media across the country that this must change." “Women on TV should accurately reflect women in society and be celebrated at every age, not treated like decoration that can be disposed and replaced with a newer version," the anchors – Roma Torre, Kristen Shaughnessy, Jeanine Ramirez, Vivian Lee and Amanda Farinacci – said in a statement.
In a statement to press today, Charter spokeswoman Maureen Huff noted that more than half of NY1’s on-air talent is female, and that more than half is over 40. NY1 is a respectful and fair workplace, and we’re committed to providing a work environment in which all our employees are valued and empowered.” The Stamford, Conn.-based company, which will be represented by the Proskauer Rose law firm, continued: “We take these allegations seriously, and as we complete our thorough review, we have not found any merit to them.
Janine Ramirez
The suit details numerous examples of alleged mistreatment and discrimination, such as Torre complaining to supervisors about "newer, younger staff getting favorable treatment," to little result. The suit says that Torre told NY1 News Director Anthony Proia that she was being “pushed aside” in favor of male anchor Pat Kiernan "and the younger set."
Staten Island Reporter
Since filing this lawsuit we have received an enormous amount of support for which we are thankful. We are five award-winning female journalists with more than 100 years of collective experience as anchors and reporters for New York One (“NY1”), the metro-area news channel run by Charter Communications, Inc. (“Charter”). Today, we filed an age and gender discrimination lawsuit in the Southern District of New York against Charter/NY1 because we have been treated like second-class citizens for years.
50 years old
Wigdor, who has successfully sued Fox News over similar issues, said his clients will "hold NY1 accountable for their blatant ageist and sexist views and intend to send a message across all media that this epidemic of discrimination toward older women must come to an end."
Torre later told Dan Ronayne, Senior VP of NY1,  "I don’t know if you’ve noticed,
Five anchorwomen at NY1, New York City's premiere, 24-hour news channel, have filed an age and gender discrimination lawsuit against channel operator Charter Communications, claiming they all have been "repeatedly marginalized and relegated to second-class status" as younger women and men have moved forward.
44 years old
NY1 since 1995
Too bad. Ronayne that when she spoke to Mr. Boo hoo.” "In fact," the suit continues, "she informed Mr. Proia, he said I don’t want to hear any more. That’s just the way it is.
Unfortunately, it is men and younger women that are getting the top anchor positions and time slots while older women are pushed aside and marginalized." The plaintiffs' Twitter handle, Wigdor said, is @UnseenWomenOnTV. Wigdor fired back at the NY1 statement: “NY1’s contention that 'more than half of NY1’s on-air talent is female, and that more than half is over 40' completely misses the point. The question is not how many women there are, but where and when they appear on air.
Amanda Farinacci
Torre is among the channel's most prominent journalists and among the city's most recognizable local news personalities. She and the other four plaintiffs penned an open letter explaining their decision to file the suit – read it in its entirety below. The plaintiffs range in age from 40 to 61.
Torre was acting irrationally, responded 'There isn’t an overall conspiracy. Trust me.'" When Torre later told Proia that she felt she was being "jerked around" and "targeted," Proia responded, “Those are fighting words, Roma.” Proia, implying that Ms. The suit continues: "Mr.
The suit – read it here – was filed today in Federal District Court in Manhattan, seeks a jury trial and claims that the plaintiffs have "each made numerous complaints to management and human resources to address this blatant and ongoing conduct, but they have been ignored, dismissed and disregarded."

Vivian Lee
We are not saying anything new. On the contrary, this is #OldNews.
NY1 since 1996
We are fighting for any woman who has reached a certain age and has been intentionally marginalized, passed-over and deemed less relevant because of her age. We are fighting for ourselves and we are fighting for all of them. We have eight daughters amongst us. There are professional young women across the media who will one day reach our age and absent a cultural shift may one day find themselves in an all too familiar situation. We are fighting for our colleagues who see what is happening but do not dare speak up for fear of retribution. We have talented younger female colleagues. We are fighting for any woman who found themselves signing a severance deal that felt more like hush money, rather than a genuine thank you for years of loyalty and hard work.
“New Yorkers deserve to have the most talented journalists deliver the news," said the women's attorney, Douglas H. Wigdor. "Sadly, after dedicating over 100 years of award-winning journalism to NY1, our five clients have clearly been told that their careers are over, as NY1 seems to believe that younger faces, when it comes to women, are a 'better look' for the bottom line."
Please join us in our campaign to #BroadcastWomen of all ages across the country. You can follow our handle on twitter @UnseenWomenOnTV and join the conversation using the hashtag #BroadcastWomen.
We filed this lawsuit because we have simply been left with no choice — we cannot and will not sit idly by while we are cast aside and our complaints of mistreatment are ignored. While we have poured our hearts and souls into our work, our respective careers have recently taken a sharp decline as we have been confronted with the stark reality of gender discrimination and ageism.
It has been widely reported that older female television journalists often face never-ending hurdles towards advancement and frequently face uphill battles just to maintain the status quo. Because if not now, when? For that reason, the #SeeHer initiative aimed at ensuring the on-air media accurately reflects women in our society was recently highlighted by the New York Times in a March 11, 2019 article titled “The Fight to Be a Middle-Aged Female News Anchor.” Unfortunately, this form of age and gender discrimination will continue to happen until people stand up and make clear that it will not be tolerated. This is hardly a new phenomenon in the news media, and we are not alone. We have decided to use our voices towards that end. This is a conversation that must happen and must happen now.
but the older reporters don’t get on the air as much and the younger reporters seem to be on the air all the time.” Torre also expressed concern about retribution and being branded a "complainer."
Women in media should be celebrated for their diversity of experience and wisdom. In this 21st century, we should be long past the double-standard that allows men to age with gravitas while women are saddled with an expiration date. We should be long past the days that women of a certain age are deemed expendable. We call out all newsrooms nationwide to look in their collective mirror.

Tory Lanez – Don Queen (Don Q Diss) Lyrics

I get real disrespectful when niggas get neglectful of what we do over here
Highbridge stand the fuck up, yeah
Canada! This, this is a lot of pay-per-view time you’re gettin’ right now
I know you not used to this, you a little frightened
But it’s okay, my son, you know I still fuck with you, nigga
And you know, I mean, at least off of this, at least the celebrities might know your name now, you know? Yeah, yeah, because they was—they…
Who’s that? Like… I hope I did that for you
Oh, in other words too, you wild ugly, nigga
Wild fuckin’ ugly, nigga
You wild ugly, nigga
Fuck outta here Big Apple, New York City, more to pity
How could I beef with a dude only poppin’ in four cities? [Skit: Nicki Minaj & Funkmaster Flex]
—Don’t gotta do that
And Don Q together
Who’s that? He ain’t even a chapter, he ain’t even a factor
QP and Bubba touchin’ way more money than him, they ain’t even the rappers
It hurts when you kill a nigga you love
Ironic that the salt thrown from the niggas that’s slugs
Chewin’ these niggas with no ingestion
I got a real message for my brother Quincy, my nigga, it’s time to go get tested
It’s a couple hoes in Starlets I know you infected
You really out here fuckin’ raw with a scrotum infection
And what’s worse is you know it, still you go unprotected
You need to focus on a hit, need to go get a record
See you can find a Don Q in the ho nigga section
Go get injected with whatever medicine you need to clear up
‘Cause them pills ain’t workin’ for every time it flare up
Yuck, I’ma let you breathe on that
I’m really beggin’ that you think about your physical health
You’ll never see your fuckin’ album on a physical shelf
I’ll beat your ass, whip your kid with the belt
You never flipped it to sell
You’re not a hustler, your daddy was a customer
I got the info from your baby mama playin’ nympho
You drive a foreign but them 25 hundred dollar hosts ain’t enough for you to pay those rentals
You a shameless mental, well my aim is mental, fuck it
My whole mood I showed y’all fuck it
My dick, I done told y’all suck it
I’ll punch your fat ass in your stomach
And make everything in it go up it
You wrote a tape for your nigga that died
You made a promise it would pop and that the shit would be live
Hurts that you had to tell my nigga a lie
‘Cause that mixtape flopped and so did your other five
Put the gun aside, my nigga, you ain’t the one to shoot
Big guns, nigga, you got locked for a 22
Pussy gotta keep a gun on his waist
‘Cause you lil’ niggas scared to get punched in your face
Jada said it best, Quincy made his bed to rest
Invest in a better vest
Better for my case, these bullets rather hit your head than chest
Quit actin’ like you the mob
You tryna play Gianni
But you got ran out of Amazura and Avianne
The Bridge is over, The Bridge is over
I got an extra long clip that’ll hit your soldiers
My hand shoot like shampoo hit his head and shoulders
I’ll send his nine year old a Barbie just to send condolence
Uh, not the money on the head
40 minutes on stage can put a hundred on his head
I made so much millis and hundreds of this bread
I can have the whole Highbridge comin’ for his head
Top floor, Glock’s stocked in the top drawer by the 38
Bound to bring Le’Quincy Anderson up to the pearly gates
Your daughter just came from turnin’ eight
And takin’ L’s right in front of her is what you tryna perpetrate? All this blood make me regurgitate
Don’t let my Bronx niggas move and have to boost up the murder rate
But since we’re goin’ here, I’ll let you know I’m here
‘Cause this record right here’s ’bout to give you more shine than A Boogie ever gave you in your whole career
I spit fire, you from the east side of the Bronx, you just a Highbridge dick-rider
You mad at my nigga Mula ’cause his shit hotter
I know how it feels
Nah, I’m lyin’, I don’t know how it feels
I just know that everywhere I go a nigga know I’m s’posed to be real
And I don’t know how exposin’ me feel, fuck nigga
Just to keep it real, I’m only doin’ this shit with you once
You know, I…. I show niggas love and hatred niggas wanna throw back
He tempted me but never had this energy for Kodak
You paid DreamDoll for a feature to get the pussy
And somehow you think you fuckin’ with me
The first night I seen DreamDoll I fucked her for free
And now you walk around like somehow you got one up on me
Nigga please, this your brother part
This nigga found Soulja Boy’s Gucci headband and wore it in his cover art
Why battle with A Boogie’s shadow? [Intro]
Yo, we only doin’ this shit once
It get real frightening, you know? I hope, I hope you enjoyed this shit though
I hope, I hope you take this as a blessing, you know? I made Forbes with Diddys and sat top floors with 50s
And now I’m fully open, I play the bully on ’em
Call for your squad, you rest, you get decimated
You lookin’ like a Styles P nephew that never made it
Forever hated on niggas like Boogie and me
’Cause we was poppin’ in New York and every hood that you see
The day you beat me will be the day you see see
HOT 97 feedin’ you more lovin’ than they feed me
Don’t let these niggas gas you on that podcast and CC
Highbridge, the Label, but only one of y’all on TV
Only one of y’all’ll see awards and eat with the stars
It ain’t really hard to figure out who I’m speakin’ up for
Now that my foot and knee in the door, let’s talk about it, no walkin’ out it
We ’bout to see Le’Quincy body with the chalk around it
I got the full baggage
You drive a Jeep Wrangler, the basic edition, shit ain’t even the full package
Someone tell Quincy I turn beef into mince meat
Hottest of the century, why did he go up against me? [Verse]
Uh, live from the DM, I’m hollerin’ at your BM
We discussin’ which color casket you ’bout to leave in
I did this shit for no reason, I’m lettin’ rookies battle
But how did I get in this battle with A Boogie’s shadow? Why battle with A Boogie’s shadow?

Colin Kroll Dies: CEO Of HQ Trivia And Co-Founder Of Vine Was 35

What.” I’m heartbroken. HQ Trivia marketing director Andrew Watts tweeted Sunday: “What the f–k.
Before Vine, Kroll was the chief technology officer for Jetsetter, and served as the engineering manager at Yahoo between 2007 to 2009.
Colin Kroll, the former co-founder of social media sensation Vine and CEO of HQ Trivia, was found dead early Sunday morning from what news reports quoting police sources claim was an apparent drug overdose.
The 35-year-old Kroll’s body was discovered by police after his girlfriend told them she could not reach him. The police and the girlfriend went to his SoHo apartment on Spring Street in New York City for a welfare check just after midnight and found Kroll dead in his bedroom.
Kroll was the co-founder of Vine, a short-form video hosting service acquired by Twitter before its launch, and was its general manager between 2013 and 2014. It then produced an Internet archive of past videos, ending the service's active presence. At its peak, the service claimed 200 million active users. But in 2016, Twitter ended uploads to the service.
Kroll became HQ Trivia CEO in September after leaving Twitter, his exit marked by some cloudy allegations of improper conduct.” />

“There was no other place we’d really shoot it,” said Carey. Some locations were places Lee frequented. “We found some great bookstores and locations that were still period specific. [Independent bookstores] are a dying breed in New York City, but we were lucky to find some.
It became richer and richer and then the right team makes the right broth.” “With Nicole, we still had access to Lee Israel,” said Carey. “For whatever reason, it didn’t work that way [with Holofcener directing]. Jeff Whitty, who wrote the book for Avenue Q, boarded as scriptwriter and later Nicole Holofcener also worked on the script with the idea of directing. Everyone who touched the script added to it. I’ve worked on a lot of adaptations and they take a long time. But in the long run, it’s all additive. When you’re in the thick of it, it can be volatile. She later departed the project.

An Austrian diplomat and politician who served as Secretary-General of the United Nations from 1972 to 1982, Kurt Waldheim ran for the presidency of Austria in 1986. The outbreak of anti-Semitism and nationalism along with the country’s collective whitewashing of its Nazi-era past all led to Waldheim’s election. His nation elected him despite a controversy over his previously undisclosed role in the Nazi regime during World War II: it was alleged that Waldheim participated in the deportation of over 60,000 Jews in Greece during WWII – which he and Austria's political class vehemently and disingenuously denied. Although discredited by Western nations and placed on the U.S.' watch list, Waldheim astonishingly went on to serve with impunity as head of state for six years.

Michael Che Says Louis C.K. Has A “Right To Speak And Make A Living”

C.K., who admitted to sexual misconduct at the end of last year, has been under a lot of criticism for his apparent comeback. Che, who deleted his Twitter account about three years ago, addressed the skeptical and quick-to-judge "Megans" of media and how they "freak out" because the world is still turning.
Perhaps we can expect more of his thoughts about C.K. 17 with his "Weekend Update" co-anchor Colin Jost. I can't wait to hear what the Megans have to say. when he takes the stage. Che is set to co-host the Emmys on Sept.
Meaning he can be shamed, humiliated, lose millions of dollars, lose all of his projects, lose the respect of a lot of his fans and peers, and whatever else that comes with what he did, but since he can still do a comedy set for free at a 200 seat club a year later, it means he got off easy. "What’s interesting to me about these articles against Louis CK performing again, is how important fame is to people," Che said on his Instagram stories, which have since disappeared. Because to them, he’s still winning. THAT’s how coveted fame is.” "A lot of what I read says that CK shouldn’t get to be a ‘famous’ comedian anymore. Isn’t that strange?
He continued by saying "just because it looks to you like someone is 'getting off easy' cause they still have the perks you would kill to have, doesn’t make it so."
I haven’t talked to him in a while. I don’t know what he’s done to right that situation, and it’s none of my business. One person said that C.K.'s return would lead to money and more opportunities that he "shouldn't get." Che responded: "Who's to say what someone should be 'allowed' to get?" Another messaged him and asked what he thinks the disgraced C.K. deserves to which Che replied, "Man, I don’t really know. Naturally, the Megans and critics of social media elbowed their way into Che's Instagram stories to respond to his thoughts. I don’t know any of his accusers. But I do believe any free person has a right to speak and make a living."″ />
As comedians continue to have heated debates about Louis C.K.'s unofficial return to stand-up comedy, Saturday Night Live "Weekend Update" anchor Michael Che took to Instagram to chime about the coverage of C.K.'s recent surprise stand-up set at New York City's Comedy Cellar Sunday night.

How Paula Malcomson’s Abby Swung TV’s Most Male Show ‘Ray Donovan’ Toward Season-Long Female Focus: Emmy Q&A

Her work there was just gorgeous. SCHREIBER: I watched that again just recently. I think Paula’s work in that is as good, or better, than anything I’ve seen on film, on stage or TV.
I subscribe to the theory you are only as good as the people you work with and I’ve never had a better screen partner than Paula. She pokes, she prods, she catches, she pushes, she floats, she’s just always present and active, asking questions and challenging herself and everyone she’s working with. That’s something I’ve come to love and need and the idea of parting with that last season was very hard for me.
Jesus, that was so tough, but cathartic because you just said goodbye to this character, in this way, with goodbyes to the crewyou’re your fellow actors, and with the audience. MALCOMSON: Yeah, I got the boss standing right next to me, and I think we had just shot my death scene when I saw you. But no one could know.
That was an idea that I'd been waxing on for a while. It got me back to Belfast and it was a different character, not like Abby. MALCOMSON: I don't know. As far as the next bit, I don't know what it's going to be. I went home to Ireland and did a series about a woman who leaves her children.
I just felt bad that I had to lie about it, because that’s not me. I wanted to tell you, here's what's happening. MALCOMSON: No, not at all.
Even though he's out fu*king other women, they had a very dynamic physical relationship. We weren't going to be Carmela and Tony. MALCOMSON: They had such a dynamic. They have sex, and he has sex with others. This was a different way to go. It was not going to be these two people who don't have sex. From the very beginning, I really wanted that to be as robust as possible.
She declined cancer treatment when her breast cancer was caught early; she didn’t want to lose her breasts. It was as much vanity and pride as her physicality being key to competing for this husband whose twisted psyche compels animalistic extramarital urges. DEADLINE: Abby’s fit in that #MeToo mindset is complicated.
We all know what a genius she is, but in this world of Ray Donovan we were having a hard time reaching for her character. We looked at a lot of different ways to tell that story and this was the most emotional and scariest, which is probably why we chose it. It was the highest bar and frankly it was also going to be a way to write for Paula in a way we hadn’t been able to before. HOLLANDER: We knew we were coming to New York and were going to change things in Ray’s world, and in his condition and emotional life.
That was something that Liev needed and wanted because he lives in New York and he's got his kids. I think there was that aspect of he felt very guilty about that. It was hard for him. MALCOMSON: It was a double-edged sword because he wanted to move the show to New York. It was hard for all of us, but the decision had been made. That's completely understandable.
The way you describe Ray Donovan as the guy who takes his shirt off and comes back to the bar with the baseball bat? This is a guy show, and so initially this felt like it was a very male-brain impulse. I always loved that stuff, it’s great. Women are on the cusp of something, where you hear everybody saying, okay, we need our own stories. Now, there's a lot going on in the world. But there is also me, as an actress, wanting to tell something that is more from the female perspective.
MALCOMSON: That it wasn't a good one. The first one was kind of full of fu*k you.
Abby’s slow deterioration from breast cancer shook the show to its core and took away the foundation that kept Donovan somewhat honest. DEADLINE: All the more remarkable because as Paula says, it is a boy’s show. After punching in a song on the jukebox, he opens the trunk of his luxury car, carefully folds his designer shirt and retrieves his baseball bat. Mickey Donovan (Jon Voight) has surrounded himself with a barroom full of tough guys who say he isn’t going anywhere. A scene that personifies the male appeal of Ray Donovan is the one where the fixer goes to Mexico to retrieve his father for the FBI. Sure, this was a family haunted from scars left by a pedophile Boston priest, but displays of emotion? We hear him tear apart the bar before he drags out his unconscious father. Ha. Ray excuses himself. Why did this happen?
For me, Abby was for Ray a beacon, a way out of the storm. SCHREIBER: Abby was so many things to Ray; you could argue she was everything to Ray. That was part of the pitch when David first started talking about whether or not we would lose Paula. What happens to Ray, what happens to the train if we take the wheels off? One thing she always was to me and how I thought about Ray, was a lighthouse. For a guy who’s so tightly wound and insecure around intimacy, she was his safe place. She was his barometer of sanity, of what is right, what is home and what is safe.
DEADLINE: It was a stark contrast to the vibrant physical relationship that existed between Abby and Ray.
DEADLINE: So where next, Paula, after starring in two well written male-centric series, playing women who pull emotion, empathy and vulnerability out of dark men?
And I was really, really, really up close and personal with that, and it was a fu*king nightmare. I wanted to lose weight. And so I had to sort of abuse myself, to get there [with Abby]. It took a long time, and she was very, very, very sick, very sick. I wasn't really very nice to myself during that time. MALCOMSON: I’d been through that; my best friend died of cancer. I was not eating much. I didn't want to do a pretty version of it. I wanted to be frail.
DEADLINE: What was most troubling?
DEADLINE: What was your back and forth like at that point with Liev, your onscreen partner who is also a producer?
To those like me who felt Abby the most redemptive character in that volatile Irish Donovan family, watching the deterioration was like a blow to the gut with Ray’s baseball bat. DEADLINE: Season Four ended with the Donovan clan emerging from a near fatal calamity to appear closer than ever. Watching Season Five unfold when it soon became clear Abby won’t survive despite her fixer husband’s desperate efforts. I especially felt dumb for my comment to you at that party, and hoped you didn’t think I was belittling something you took so seriously that it sometimes felt grueling to watch.
DEADLINE: What did sacrificing Abby allow you to explore as a writer, David?
She gave brilliant performances in scene after scene, and almost doubled her efforts to make the season what it was. And we never really looked back after that. She was a joy throughout the year, devoted to that through line that was [Abby]. HOLLANDER: When the scripts started coming and we sat down to read and talk about them, Paula clicked in to what the story was and how she wanted to perform it.
We didn’t actually say a word, which was different for us. We were very quiet and just stood together through that final take. HOLLANDER: I directed the final episode, and Paula and I were standing together on the East River when she was playing that kind of ghost that comes back and Ray sees. It was the last shot of the season and her last shot, too. That was probably my most emotional moment with her, in that last shot, and the quiet moment. Paula is a dear friend of mine and we never run out of things to say. There was something remarkable about that silence, standing there and knowing the journey she’s been on and what a brave process she went through.
But I thought it was too easy to take away the female lead from the show. So I was dealing with that for a while, since not last November but the one before, the ‘what is this, why are we doing this?’ MALCOMSON: It was because…I thought it's too easy and there's other ways. The show needed to make a move to New York, and going into the sixth season, they were going to have to change things up. I think giving her cancer in the first place was already jeopardizing things. I was like, why don’t we do something else, find another way to subvert the audience's expectations?
But the first conversation was really not nice. MALCOMSON: Well, so there was that initial conversation, where I was disappointed and thought we could do better, dig into her storyline, explore other things. Then when it was clear this was happening, it was, how are we going to do this in a way that makes me feel like I can do my job as an actor?
DEADLINE: When I first met you and David Hollander at a Deadline Emmy party, my opening line was something like, I hope we’ve put Abby’s breast cancer scare behind us, who can imagine Ray Donovan without his grounding wire. What a tool I am. You guys gave me a look I now understand fully.
DEADLINE: Because the 112-page script is the whole movie?
Though we talk occasionally. SCHREIBER: The last word between the two of us? On both days, I was sheepishly avoiding it, I didn’t want to think it was over. That has not turned out to be true unfortunately, and that is the nature of this business. We shied away from it. You think, oh, well, we’ll still hang out, I’ll see you all the time and it will be fine. We had a last day in LA, and then in New York when we shot on the roof.
It was a combination of being riveted and amazed by the work, while at the same time feeling blue that this was happening. What I found was, the saddest and hardest things are often the most creatively satisfying at the same time. Episode 8, Abby’s death, was the most painful to shoot. It is also an episode where people brought their finest acting and filmmaking to.
But, it’s kind of a boy’s show, isn't it? MALCOMSON: That's very sweet.
DEADLINE: What is your mindset?
I don't know. MALCOMSON: I think we all went and got drunk, maybe.
DEADLINE: What did you do, after Paula’s final scene?
DEADLINE: Did you hear it even from the male viewers drawn to Ray Donovan as the prototypical tough guy who sees emotion as weakness?
DEADLINE: It was clearly your priority not to glamorize Abby’s physical deterioration as cancer overtook her body.
DEADLINE: The one where, with the help of her daughter Bridget (Kerris Dorsey) and Ray’s brother Terry (Eddie Marsan), Abby ends her life and her pain, and while Ray uses his fixer skills to make a Faustian bargain to get her an experimental treatment that could save her, he was too late.
But I came away feeling that maybe this would be a good thing for assisted suicide, that it could be something important and something I haven't seen on television. I got a say. MALCOMSON: At first I had this feeling like, there's no way, I want to come in and talk to you guys, after they written one of the early scripts. It was hard but I tried to make that leap with Abby. They were just incredibly respectful of my feelings. And the beauty of it was, we were all going through it together, the writers too, and nothing was set in stone. I think they weren’t going to do her sickness so strongly. I told them what I was thinking. And I wanted her to have no hair and to really show the physical toll.
It really felt like we were breaking up a double act and I was left feeling like I didn’t know if I was going to ever have another partner like that.
DEADLINE: When did it feel right?
I have tried to be a real writer’s actor. There's something about digging into that unknown place; it's like a real psychic journey, and you’re bringing in your own stuff. MALCOMSON: Yeah. I'm a real admirer Philip Seymour Hoffman who could go into a movie and bang, right there, you know in that instant who his character is. It’s something David Milch taught me, the whole lead and follow with your writers approach. When I do films, I find I leave going, god, I wish I had thought to do this or that. I always felt like I have this slower burn.
She’s such a fighter. At first, I was against the assisted suicide thing. I was like, well, fu*k, you know that's not Abby, especially with her kids. Why would she not…fight? We weren't going to do this typical, straightforward, linear cancer storyline. To where she didn't want to put her kids through more. There's only so much I can worry about. I'm not that actress. That’s why I had to get her that sick, that fu*ked up, to get her without hope. And how do I get to that place? You know when you watch people wake up in bed and they've got their makeup on? I was frankly worried this show wasn't the right vehicle for that, but then I had to say that's not my problem.
This gave us an access point to their relationship we never had before. There were discoveries along the way. The joyous thing was an ability to reach into Ray and Abby’s relationship in a way we never had been able to do before. The joy they felt together, remembering funnier times, from Vegas to the ice skating episode, things we really hadn’t been able to access because of the forward momentum of a show about a Hollywood fixer, and frankly the male muscularity of the show. Sometimes that’s the way you have to go to get deeper into stories and character. The whole thing was challenging to us as artists but also to the audience as well. It became a love story of a very different dimension and personally I thought that was gratifying and challenging.
Here, Malcomson, Liev Schreiber and executive producer David Hollander describe the pain and opportunity that came with ending a character who was the moral spine of the show, and the troubled Donovan clan. It is somewhat surprising in the run-up to Emmy that more attention isn't being paid to Paula Malcomson's brave final season-long performance in Ray Donovan. For the Belfast-born actress, this ends two long runs as women in male-voiced shows who drew emotion and humanity out of black as pitch antiheroes — she previously played Trixie, the prostitute/lover of Ian McShane's Al Swearengen in the David Milch-created HBO drama Deadwood. Malcomson's Abby, the scrappy Southie-born wife of the emotionally repressed Hollywood fixer, shockingly finished her long run on the Showtime series when –spoiler alert– her character ended a losing battle with breast cancer by taking her own life, a story line that is intricately woven into the entire fifth season of the drama.
This is the thing for me with this show, and Liev. There’s no end of stuff to get into with family. I think that what we did was so beautiful. We built this relationship, around which all these shenanigans happened. Take the antihero story and tether it to some real family stories. How many times are you going to see him go and beat people up. To me, what my job was is to tether this thing to reality so that it's not just…I mean, the stuff is fun, but it can get hold.
And not see her replaced by a 20-year-old or whatever? At first she wasn't that. These are the things we were talking about. How after that, are you going to lose the female out of the show? And I did my damnedest to get underneath that. She was antagonistic. I just wanted to make sure that if we were going to do it, we were going to do it right. MALCOMSON: You called Abby a beloved character. She was written in a sort of very wife trope, naggy way. But the thing about it is, it took a lot for us to get her there.
LIEV SCHREIBER: Episode Eight…
Paula, what do you remember of that initial conversation when David told you this? But rarely does a major show replace a character who was the conduit to drawing out the vulnerability in a hulking character who loathes showing emotion. And actors are there to serve that vision. DEADLINE: It is understandable that the show’s chief creative architect has the right to determine his main character’s path.
Ray’s emotional demise was about her, Ray going where he went and landing in the East River, was about her. It was a story line completely centered around Paula’s character. But when you make painful changes, there's no fun, either. The elements of the hard stuff, dying of a disease we are scared of, also introduced for the first time where we writing from the female side of the story and getting drawn in, and we never really did that before. Bridget [Kerris Dorsey] had a lot of purpose, Abby had a lot of purpose and so did Susan Sarandon. DAVID HOLLANDER: It was 100% her season, from the first episode to the last. You can’t repeat yourself endlessly, that can be no fun. There’s the feelings stated by people who watch the show and liked that, and those who didn’t. The through line was hers. We were all really proud of the season and amazed and proud of Paula’s work. But on a long running show, no one likes sameness, either. It changed the dynamic of the show and it was interesting to watch [the reaction]. Everything was named after her and followed her.
A nightmare. PAULA MALCOMSON: Would we best describe that look as sheepish? I remember that. I was in the thick of that whole thing right then, and I couldn't say anything.
DEADLINE: Now, my thought is, why aren’t more people talking about your performance and Abby’s season long death spiral of a beloved character so central to core of Ray Donovan?
People in the street just coming up and picking me up off my feet and hugging me. MALCOMSON: Grown men have come up to me in New York City, like, ‘I fu*king love you, Abby, what the fu*k?’ There was a lot of hugging.
DEADLINE: Give away your death scene to a journalist with David Hollander standing right next to you?
Sometimes we would share it, but we were very linked to each other, intuitively. Sometimes I would take more of the weight and sometimes she would. There was a thing with us that had to do with picking up on each other, like good scene partners, musicians or figure skaters. She was my Lady Macbeth.
My way with anything is to try and hit people and touch nerves and make people feel, and that’s what this has done and I’ve been happy to hear it from people because I feel like I've done my job.
Abby raged over Ray’s infidelity, but never conceded and even once took on her own lover. DEADLINE: In the Tony Carmela Soprano dynamic, I recall Edie Falco’s character rationalizing Tony’s infidelity by saying to her it was like masturbation, even though it didn’t hide her hurt and betrayal.
So to me, I was passing that to Kerris and it was very important that she was in that scene with me at the end. I don't know that I thought like, oh my god, this is mine, because whatever you give me emotionally, I'm going to throw down with it. MALCOMSON: There was more story to tell than that, though. They brought this incredible empathy, and there was something incredibly beautiful and serene about doing that scene. I’ve always been kind of the supporting actor and the role is to truly serve the story. Eddie [Marsan] too.
Over the years, this was something I’d talk to the writers about, like really, guys? MALCOMSON: I think that was such a strong part of their dynamic, that she always wanted to get to the truth. But there are some givens in this show, it’s set up a certain way, we can't change it that much, but I always tried to open things up. Is she really this surprised at this point?
And so you're a co-author, planting little seedlings and the writers are picking up on it. MALCOMSON: There was a bit but it was all [Ray's brother played by Dash Mihok] Bunchy’s thing then. I just love that process so much. It’s why I love TV so much, because as a character, you don't know where you're going. I don't find that as much in films. And then we just started to get more into that world.
Did you see all that potential in early scripts when you signed on to do this after Deadwood? But the show has been so full of shocking surprises, starting with the revelation that pedophile priest’s victimization extended to Ray himself. DEADLINE: It seems unlikely to imagine a season of the most male-centric series on television belonging to a woman.
DEADLINE: We always hear actors covet great death scenes, and here you had one that lasted a season.
You have to fall in love. What do I want to do, what do I want to say, what kind of company do I want to be around? When I was younger, it was like, just fu*k first and hope you fall in love. I've worked with great actors and great writers. Because I've been lucky. And Liev.” /> MALCOMSON: The older I get, I have to be more careful. But if what is next is going to be another five or six years, I look at it differently.
It was tough to do those things while trying to keep this through line of the cancer story. I'm glad you felt like you got hit with a bat to the stomach. That’s what I wanted, because that’s what it is. Flashing back to the nice, good days, happy times [between Ray and Abby]. And then she's sick again, so everything was kind of elastic. I couldn’t portray the cancer quite the way I wanted to, because we were jumping around with time.
The cost to the actor and the narrative was high. But from the dramatic and writing sense, we knew change was coming anyway. We struggled with it together. Paula understood that. So in many ways this was, let’s go out large, strong and big, and let’s make you the center of the story for once. Like any sensitive artist, Paula struggled with that reality, but I struggled with that reality. We were a family and it’s hard to make changes. This was the big shot across the bow.

DJ ESCO – Psychedelik Smoke Lyrics

Chiefin’ on some good herb
Esco, 5 up
[Chorus: Future]
Psychedelic flow, smokin’ kush by the pound
Got some girls in my condo, I’ma pimp ’em if they down
Hoe ass niggas wit’ some high-class swagger
I would come to where you at, but I’m on another level
Psychedelic flow, roll some kush, let’s get high
Let the weed take your spirit over and relax your mind
Champagne bubble bath, hope I don’t drown
Let me inhale the smoke, now my head in the clouds
[Verse 1: Future]
Roll up then get some papers
Then roll me up some reefer
I’m still [?] my mind
Go fire me up some diesel
I treat it like it’s legal
Get higher than a eagle
I’m layed up in the crib; me and some mamacitas
We live a life of luxury and everything beneath us
They treat us like some criminals and never thought we’d be here
They can’t even compare niggas like me, I’m out in Egypt
My nigga just went up for appeal, he want his freedom
It’s like George Clint’, P-Funk era, we just on syrup
I keep pourin’ activist codeine, my drink is sterile
I’m a rockstar rapper type nigga, I’m just on steroids
I got pretty New York City bitches, I’m like that A-Rod
[Chorus: Future]
Psychedelic flow, smokin’ kush by the pound
Got some girls in my condo, I’ma pimp ’em if they down
Hoe ass niggas wit’ some high-class swagger
I would come to where you at, but I’m on another level
Psychedelic flow, roll some kush, let’s get high
Let the weed take your spirit over and relax your mind
Champagne bubble bath, hope I don’t drown
Let me inhale the smoke, now my head in the clouds
[Verse 2: Ty Dolla $ign]
Psychedelic kush, that’s that Louie 13
Got some niggas out in New York, send them 20 pounds a week
I be stayin’ medicated, every day I’m meditated
If I’m movin’ too slow, bitch, that probably mean I’m probably faded
Been aound them drugs, but I just stick to marijuana
Niggas get to actin’ up, we hit ’em wit’ the llama
Had me open up, but all these bitches came for Dolla
Niggas tried to sound like me, but they can’t fuck with Dolla
And you know I’m reppin’ Taylor
Homies twistin’ Backwoods, but you know I fuck with papers
I just came from Jungle Boys, the blessed me with the flavors
I would come to where you at, but, lil’ bitch, I’m too major
[Chorus: Future]
Psychedelic flow, smokin’ kush by the pound
Got some girls in my condo, I’ma pimp ’em if they down
Hoe ass niggas wit’ some high-class swagger
I would come to where you at, but I’m on another level
Psychedelic flow, roll some kush, let’s get high
Let the weed take your spirit over and relax your mind
Champagne bubble bath, hope I don’t drown
Let me inhale the smoke, now my head in the clouds [Intro: Future]
What are those arts?

Flatbush Zombies – U&I (feat. Dia)

Cool milli off the merch, SoundScan’s shuttin’ down now
[Verse 3: Erick]
I put the bread down on something I wanted for years
If my brother need some money, man I prolly sell that shit hey
Break it into pieces, ooh wow there it is
Brothers make real beats, bomb lyricist
Brothers look the other way, nothing come to trouble mate
This is why I love you dog, smokin’ at your mama’s crib
My brother not a local, my brother travel continents
No need to find a hotel, my brothers got the couch and shit
[Verse 4: Meechy Darko]
Debra’s only son, he was conceived in King’s County
That was ’89, by ’92 he was already rowdy
Misunderstood since he crawled out the womb, the only child
And his momma workin’ three jobs, one was dealin’ with drama
‘Cause I was wildin’, he used to rarely see his father
They seperated, couldn’t keep his dick in his pajamas
Because he was out there hustlin’, tryin’ to be a provider
Tryin’ to turn a pretty penny into a million dollars
They tell you ’bout my family, that bipolar disorder
And due to karma my first youngin’ gon’ be a daughter
When I was 5, I told my mama I wanted to die
And then we cry, the crazy shit, man, it wasn’t a lie
Man, this life is filled with stress
So much oppressed, call New York City "9"
I sit alone and reflect, took me 28 years to realize that I’m blessed
My gran’ died from cancer, I quit them cigarettes
Weight of world on my shoulder, I just finished my reps
All addicted to drugs, we all addicted to sex
Feelin’ so self destructive, like I’m clingin’ to death
Took my 5 digit check and copped some bigger baguettes
Take a look at my writing, finger charm on my neck
Still in touch with myself, that flashy shit won’t prevail
I really be shopping for happiness, but that shit ain’t for sale
But if you don’t show ‘em then they won’t think you do it well
I heard that blood is thicker than them Atlanta strippers
But these my brothers, they ain’t got real brothers to know the difference
And Erick if I could, I’d give your mama my kidney
‘Cause she’s my momma too
I promise you I ride for my niggas, die for my niggas
Load .45 Rat-tat, homicide for my niggas
Word up, ’cause you my brothers, love ’em to death
Written in stone, I take my heart and rip it out my chest
To prove to you that it’s Zombie gang, rotten flesh
That’s to the death, nigga—no more, nothing less
True, indeed, Juice, if you ever off or bleed
I’m takin’ care of your seeds, even if that means millions in fees
For custody, she wildin’ out on court, I’m like, "Give that bitch what she needs."
(Order in the court!) Judge please (order!)
I guess I still got alot to maturin’ to do
I know we still got a whole lot of world tourin’ to do
This game is supposed to be locked in, I leak through
Like a real bad pussy pad, watch me seep through
Ooh, it’s Darky baby, a whole different hue
My grand-daddy got 8 balls, come and get a cue
I come from the struggle, motherfucker, get a clue
Headshot, red dot, now make a move
[Chorus: Erick & Juice]
In a world (in a world) full of thieves (full of thieves)
We see diamonds (we see diamonds), we see keys (we see keys)
If the issue (if the issue), talk to me (talk to me)
If I miss you (If I miss you), it’s ’cause you’re deep (it’s ’cause you’re deep)
In a world (in a world) full of thieves (full of thieves)
We see diamonds (we see diamonds), we see keys (we see keys)
If the issue (if the issue), talk to me (talk to me)
If I miss you (If I miss you), it’s ’cause you’re deep (it’s ’cause you’re deep) [Intro: Dia]
Don’t be anxious, or impatient
‘Cause I-I-I want to hold you close and never let go
[Bridge: Juice]
Yeah, she said baby don’t go, but you and I got to be for you and I
This that do or die, po pimp shit recordin’ in the sky
And I get so high that I forgot ’bout last night, right
Yeah, she said baby don’t go, but you and I got to be for you and I
This that do or die, po pimp shit recordin’ in the sky
And I get so high that I forgot ’bout last night, right
[Chorus: Erick & Juice]
In a world (in a world) full of thieves (full of thieves)
We see diamonds (we see diamonds), we see keys (we see keys)
If the issue (if the issue), talk to me (talk to me)
If I miss you (If I miss you), it’s ’cause you’re deep (it’s ’cause you’re deep)
In a world (in a world) full of thieves (full of thieves)
We see diamonds (we see diamonds), we see keys (we see keys)
If the issue (if the issue), talk to me (talk to me)
If I miss you (If I miss you), it’s ’cause you’re deep (it’s ’cause you’re deep)
[Verse 1: Erick]
Ooh, I say we struggle
It’s hard livin’, streets have been unforgivin’
Smoke weed, hold deep conversations with winners
‘Cause these my brothers, love ’em to death
Written in stone, so when I’m gone, they huggin’ our breath
Don’t frequent Hell, Gorillaz-pin on lapel
There’s 6 grams in the blunt, on a mission to find myself
Growin’ and breakin’ ties, cryin’ and savin’ lives
Couldn’t be discontent, temptation arrives
[Verse 2: Juice]
Yeah, I’m patiently waiting
But I don’t really give a fuck if we ain’t in your rotation
I put the heart up on this bitch and can’t nobody take it
Brooklyn niggas, we take it, Flatbush baby, gon’ make it
Check it, but these my brothers, love ’em to death
Written in stone, until I’m gone, we puffin’ the death
No concern, nah, compare us, how?

Meek Mill Scores Legal Victory In Assault Case Dismissed

The Dreamchaser rapper is looking to put all of his legal troubles behind him so he can clean up his image to attract more corporate deals, or perhaps he just doesn’t want them hanging over his head. Meek Mill is currently working on some new music but he has yet to announced any new albums or mixtapes. Louis after getting into an altercation with a fan who claimed that he just wanted to take a picture with the rapper. Earlier this month, he struck a deal in a traffic case in New York City which sees him walking away with just community service. Just like his NYC traffic case, Meek Mill struck a deal with prosecutors which will see him doing some more community service, TMZ reported. Tweet
Meek Mill scored his second legal victory this month after getting his airport assault case dismissed.
