On Thursday, Showtime released a trailer for We Need To Talk About Cosby, a four part documentary about Bill Cosby’s sexual assault, battery, and rape allegations.

The docuseries is set to premiere at Sundance Film Festival later this month and is produced by comedian and host of United Shades Of America, W. Kamau Bell.

“The trailer for my 4 part docuseries called “We Need To Talk About Cosby”.” Bell tweeted. “I know this is not a conversation that everybody wants to have. But I hope you watch it. You can see a virtual screening at @sundancefest on January 22 or @Showtime on January 30,” Bell added.

The docuseries follows the multiple sexual assault, battery, and rape allegations against Cosby as well as Bell’s own personal history with the once convicted comedian. “Bill Cosby had been one of my heroes. I’m a Black man, standup comic, and was born in the 70’s. But this… this was complicated. How do you talk about Bill Cosby?” Bell says during the trailer.

A synopsis of the docuseries reads that “Bell, who grew up idolizing Cosby, unpacks how Cosby’s desire for power, which propelled his professional success, could be the same driving force that motivated his alleged crimes against women. We Need to Talk About Cosby peels back complex layers, portraying the genius performer, philanthropist and role model, contrasted by the accused sexual predator that now defines him. It offers viewers the chance to reconsider Cosby’s mark in a society where rape culture, toxic masculinity, capitalism and white supremacy are shaping how we re-evaluate sex, power and agency.” 

Just last year, Cosby’s conviction was overturned. He was subsequently released from prison.

The docuseries premieres on Showtime on January 30.

Katherine Schwarzenegger Gives Birth, Welcomes Baby No. 2 With Chris Pratt

Chris Pratt & Katherine Schwarzenegger Expecting Baby No. 2

Everything is awesome because Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger have welcomed another child together.

The adorable newborn, named Eloise Christina Schwarzenegger Pratt, was born on May 21, joining big sister Lyla Maria21 months. “We are so excited to announce the birth of our second daughter,” the duo wrote on Instagram May 22. “Mama and baby are doing well. We feel beyond blessed and grateful. Love, Katherine and Chris.” Chris also co-parents his son Jack, 9, with ex Anna Faris.  

The Guardians of the Galaxy actor, 42, and best-selling author, 32, confirmed that they were expecting their second child together in December 2021. On the same day, Katherine was photographed with a baby bump while out and about in Los Angeles.   

While they have both shared the most un-bear-ably adorable photos of Lyla and Jack on their respective Instagram accounts in the past, the couple have tried to protect their little ones by not publicly showing their faces online. 

“I think one of the greatest gifts that my parents ever gave me and my siblings is the gift of privacy and having a really normal upbringing,” Katherine, the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, told Today in March 2021, “or as normal of an upbringing as possible.”

She continued, “We had a really normal and magical childhood, and we were allowed to kind of be our own people and have our own identity and kind of choose to step into whatever form of being public we wanted to when we felt comfortable. That was such an incredible gift to have given us kids.” 

But the family’s newest addition might not remain the youngest child—at least, if Chris has anything to say about it. In July 2021, the Tomorrow War star told E! News’ Daily Pop that “I would love to have more [children], as many as the man upstairs will provide.”  

He added, “We’ll do it. I’ll probably have to talk to Katherine about that but my plan is, let’s go.” 

While reflecting on starting a family with Katherine, Chris shared that there is one thing that hasn’t changed: the amount of love he has for his kids.  

“The high common denominator is just kind of this unquenchable desire to want to be close to them, be next to them, to protect them and love them,” he shared. “It’s the best.”

Katherine Schwarzenegger gave birth to her and Chris Pratt’s second child together, the actor’s third, on Saturday.

“We are so excited to announce the birth of our second daughter, Eloise Christina Schwarzenegger Pratt,” Pratt, 42, announced on Instagram on Sunday.

“Mama and baby are doing well. We feel beyond blessed and grateful. Love, Katherine and Chris.”

News broke in December 2021 that the “Gift of Forgiveness” author, 32, was pregnant with baby No. 2.

While the then-expectant star stepped out with her baby bump on display that same month, she did not publicly address her pregnancy until March.

“Preggo mamas tell me if you, too, can only drink ice cold water,” Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter captioned an Instagram video at the time.

Katherine was similarly private about her pregnancy with 1-year-old daughter Lyla.

Since the little one’s arrival in August 2020, the “Maverick and Me” author and Pratt have kept Lyla’s face off social media.

Katherine explained this decision to Hoda Kotb during a March 2021 “Today” show appearance, saying, “I didn’t grow up with social media being a thing at all. … I feel like we share so much in today’s world.”

The Los Angeles native added, “I think one of the greatest gifts that my parents ever gave me and my siblings is the gift of privacy and having a really normal upbringing, or as normal of an upbringing as possible.

“We had a really normal and magical childhood, and we were allowed to kind of be our own people and have our own identity and kind of choose to step into whatever form of being public we wanted to when we felt comfortable.”

Katherine called the experience an “incredible” gift from Arnold, 74, and her mom, Maria Shriver.

Pratt and his ex-wife, Anna Faris, on the other hand, have not hidden their 9-year-old son, Jack, from their social media followers.

The former couple, who were married from 2009 to 2018, currently co-parent Jack.

“Chris and I work really hard,” Faris, 45, told “Entertainment Tonight” in January 2019. “That is sort of the long-game idea and making sure Jack is really happy, which makes us really happy.”

The “Jurassic World” star moved on with Katherine in 2018, and they wed in June of the following year.

The “Rock What You’ve Got” author is a “wonderful” stepparent, Pratt told his Instagram followers in a birthday tribute.

“I simply can’t imagine how lost I’d be without you,” the “Parks and Recreation” alum gushed via Instagram in December 2021.

Rudy Takes Break From Parade to Yell at Stranger on the Street

Not content with limiting his wild and outrageous political views to his podcast, Rudy Giuliani got into a screaming match with an unidentified heckler Sunday while marching in a parade.

Giuliani was marching in New York City’s Celebrate Israel Parade behind Mayor Eric Adams on Sunday when an onlooker began to shout at him. Giuliani then stepped to the side to yell back. The beginning of the comments are difficult to discern — it seems like they’re shouting about crime statistics — but Giuliani eventually barks, “Me! I reduced crime, you jackass!”

As the other man continued yelling, Giuliani screamed back, “You are a brainwashed asshole. I am a class act! … You are probably as demented as Biden!” The exchange can be seen in a video posted to Twitter by The Forward’s senior political reporter, Jacob Kornbluh. Shortly after the shouting ended, Giuliani returned to marching in the parade, smiling and waving an Israel flag.

Marching behind Mayor Adams is @RudyGiuliani who gets into a shouting match with a Democrat.

“You are a jackass… You are a brainwashed asshole… you are probably as demented as Biden,” Giuliani told the guy

The president’s former personal lawyer, who spearheaded Trump’s efforts in court to overturn the 2020 election results, is fresh off his Friday testimony to the Jan. 6 committee. According to sources who spoke with CNN, Giuliani met with the committee for more than nine hours. Giuliani has also been under federal investigation as authorities look into his Ukraine activities and whether he broke lobbying laws as Trump’s attorney.
