‘Avengers’ and ‘Incredibles’ sequels boosted Disney profits in the third quarter, but Disneytoon closure results in write-down

Walt Disney Co.’s earnings surged in its third fiscal quarter, thanks to blockbuster sequels such as “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Incredibles 2” and an uptick at its theme parks business.

But the company’s growth still missed analysts’ expectations, as the studio took a hit on a pair of animated…

Boy Beef: Jordan Bragged About His Tinder Matches and David Went Nuts

In a battle between a man in a chicken suit and another in gold booty shorts, who would win?

David Ravita and Jordan Kimball, both contestants for Becca Kufrin’s heart on season 14 of The Bachelorette, have had their fashion moments. But they also had the most awkward date/fight ever when Jordan said a few things that David didn’t take too kindly to – like his match percentage on Tinder. Let’s take a look back at this dramatic situation and see how it unfolded now that these two are trapped in a tropical resort together in Bachelor in Paradise.

The Start

So, Jordan originally had tension with Colton, as he felt that Colton wasn’t really there for the right reasons. (There was some sort of love triangle thing going on with a previous Bachelor contestant – it wasn’t pretty.) However, Jordan and David started to get into it when Jordan’s mouth seemed to get the best of him.

Caught on camera, Jordan started talking about his 4,000 Tinder matches in one year. Well, let’s be real. Jordan is a male model, and not like that behavior is excusable when you’re supposed to be fighting for another woman’s heart (it’s not excusable, period), but we’re pretty sure it was Jordan’s way of stroking his own fragile ego. This, however, got David just a little pissed off. He went to Becca and then to the other guys and things got heated.

The Unraveling

I’m still unsure if this two-on-one was scripted planned for dramatic reasons or Becca’s idea, but putting two guys who basically hate each other together on a date isn’t really the best idea. Anyway, David, Jordan, and Becca went off-roading and wound up in a pretty cool little setup in the middle of the desert of Las Vegas. David, however, used his time with Becca to bash Jordan and tell Becca that Jordan believed he was “settling” by choosing Becca. This made Becca pretty livid (because that’s what every woman wants to hear!); however, she turned the tables and eliminated David on the spot.

Becca then finished out the date with Jordan, but things didn’t get any better when it came down to the giving of the rose.

The End

Even though Jordan tried to salvage his bad name to Becca, nothing he could say was enough. She was over it, big time, and decided it was time for him to make his exit – booty shorts and all.

On the recent “Men Tell All” special, David admitted that he shouldn’t have been so focused on Jordan and should have just focused on spending time with Becca, which a lot of the other men agreed with and called him out for.

Now, these dudes are going to Bachelor in Paradise, where they will end up best friends and uniting against . . . forget we said that. We can’t wait to see what drama is going to unfold between the two of these guys when there is more at stake than just one woman’s heart.

Here’s Who’s in Charge of Paying For Princess Eugenie’s Very Expensive Royal Wedding

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are set to tie the knot at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor on Oct. 12. We already know that her sister, Princess Beatrice, will serve as Eugenie’s maid of honor and that there’s a possibility that Prince Philip may not attend, but who is in charge of paying for the wedding? Traditionally, the bride’s parents pay for the wedding, but Eugenie is a royal and royal weddings are expensive, so what’s the deal?

Charmed Reboot’s Cast Not Bothered by Original Star’s Shade: “She Would See It and Like It”

Not everyone is excited about The CW’s decision to reboot Charmed, the late ’90s and early aughts tribute to sisterly love and witchcraft.

Some fans were irked that the writers’ new characters seemed to be trying too hard to champion diversity since the three multiethnic leads are now playing women who were Caucasian in the original series. And others, like first series star Holly Marie Combs, brought up another issue: is it ageist to reboot a series that just ended in 2006 and not cast the original’s stars?

“I will never understand what is fierce, funny, or feminist in creating a show that basically says the original actresses are too old to do a job they did 12 years ago,” Combs wrote to a journalist earlier this year. For their part, the cast of the new Charmed are not letting these comments get them down.

“I think that we’ve collectively made a decision to focus on [the fact that this] is such a great place to be and to create this show with people who I love,” Melonie Diaz, who plays middle sister Mel in this version, told journalists on Monday during the show’s Summer Television Critics Association press day.

Sarah Jeffrey, who plays youngest sister Maggie, adds that “we understand that it’s such a sacred thing to so many people; not only the cast but the fans” and that she and the others involved now are “very gracious and grateful” for that. Madeleine Mantock, who plays eldest sister Macy, says she understands Combs’s attachment to the show and that she hopes “she would see it and like it.”

So will any original cast members appear in the new version of Charmed? “There’s always multi verses, and you never know,” teased executive producer Jennie Snyder Urman.

Charmed premieres on Oct. 14 on The CW.
