Congratulations are in order for Matthew Perry and Molly Hurwitz!

On Thursday, it was announced that Perry proposed to his girlfriend of two years and she said YES! “I decided to get engaged,” Perry told People. “Luckily, I happened to be dating the greatest woman on the face of the planet at this time.”

The couple began dating in 2018, but only went public with their relationship when Hurwitz, a talent manager, posted a sweet Valentine’s Day message on Instagram back in February. “Second year being my valentine, but his first as an Instagram influencer,” she wrote.

Congrats again to the happy couple! Could we be more excited for them?

13 Stars You Might’ve Forgotten Were on Saved by the Bell

By | November 26, 2020

While Zack, Kelly, Slater, Jessie, Lisa, and Screech may have been the true stars of Saved by the Bell, their actors weren’t the only ones who went on to fame. Even some of the smallest roles on the show were played by some current big-name stars, although most weren’t too well-known when the show originally aired. In honor of the Saved by the Bell reboot, which is currently airing on Peacock, we couldn’t think of anything more fitting than a trip down memory lane. Ahead are 13 stars from the original series and TV movies who you might’ve forgotten were on the show. We skipped cameos from Saved by the Bell: The New Class since that deserves a list of its own.

Will Ted Lasso Score a Second Season? Here’s What We Know

I feel like we’ve scored a goal: Ted Lasso, the feel-good comedy on Apple TV+ starring Jason Sudeikis, will have a second season. The first season is full of positivity and fun as Sudekis’s Ted, an American football coach, is hired to coach an English soccer team despite having no experience. However, he has many optimistic moments and quotable lines like, “When it comes to locker rooms, I like them just like my mother’s bathing suit — I only want to see them in one piece.” The humor will continue in season two, which will debut in 2021 and include 10 episodes. Apple renewed season two only a week after the first season premiered, and it also already confirmed season three!

As far as the plot of Ted Lasso season two, Brett Goldstein, who writes for the show and plays Roy, doesn’t want to spill any spoilers. “We’ve already started to write season two. But I can’t tell you anything. I don’t want to spoil anything, because we have some nice surprises planned,” he said. According to Bill Lawrence, the executive producer, season two will not include a COVID-19 storyline. “When we shot it the first time, this wasn’t on our radar,” he said. “If [COVID-19] is still a day-to-day issue when a second season comes out . . . people are going to want escapist entertainment. Half-empty stadiums with Zoom crowds? It’s too weird to even be writing.”

15 Books by Muslim American Authors That Need to Be on Your Radar

By | November 26, 2020

It can be easy to seek out books that tell stories we’re familiar with, but for some readers — particularly in the United States — finding a story that reflects their own can be difficult. To make things a little easier, we rounded up 15 books by Muslim American authors that are just as amazing whether you want to read something that tells your story, want to learn more about Islam, or are just looking for a good romance to curl up with. Representation in all media matters, and searching for stories that expand our worldview is equally important — we hope these books will help you do just that.

This Comedian’s Impression of Margaret Thatcher on The Crown Is Royally Funny

By | November 25, 2020

The cast of The Crown knows how to make us do a double take when it comes to playing the members of the royal family, but actress and comedian Lisa Beasley’s spot-on impersonation of Margaret Thatcher (portrayed by Gillian Anderson) puts a hilarious spin on one of the show’s most stoic characters. The impression is an admirable replication of Anderson’s voice and cadence on the show, creating a gravelly tone that lands somewhere between a member of high society and Lord Voldemort. In particular, Beasley nails Thatcher’s demeanor when Queen Elizabeth II officially names her prime minister, but the dialogue is where things start to go off script.

“I am Margaret Thatcher,” Beasley says in a raspy voice before poking fun at Thatcher’s time in office, specifically her decision to eliminate the countrywide free milk program for school children over the age of 7 in 1971. As she’s speaking, Beasley is careful to keep her face stiff and unyielding, expertly mimicking Anderson’s performance and giving us all a good laugh. Check out Beasley’s full impression ahead, as well as comedian Kieran Hodgson’s charming impressions of The Crown cast here.
