Drake Bell’s all grown up (and sexy AF); a Liza Minelli murder mystery; Randy Rainbow vs. Trump Jr.

Rumor has it: Season Five of Arrested Development will swirl around the murder of Lucille Austero, played as always by Liza Minnelli. (You may remember Buster Bluthe was arrested for killing her at the end of Season 4.)

Talking to EW Radio, star Justin Bateman said, “The central spine of that story is the death of Liza Minnelli’s character, and a bit of whodunit, who may have done it, who had something to do with it.”

“That’s sort of a central thread around which [creator Mitch Hurwitz] is going to braid in all the colorful plot complications that he knows how to do.”

You wouldn’t think there were enough films set on Fire Island to create a retrospective, but there you’d be wrong.

NY-based arthouse theater Metrograph will be showing “On Fire Island” from August 11 and August 12, showcasing queer classics like Boys in the Sand, Sticks & Stones, Parting Glances, and Andy Warhol’s My Hustler.

Watch a snippet of the Warhol film below:

“Sashay away” is really just a slightly kinder way of saying “Off with her head!” A visual paean to Lewis Carroll’s druggy underworld, the 2018 Pirelli calendar finds RuPaul slipping effortlessly into the Queen of Hearts’ shoes. The calendar’s all-black cast also includes Little Yachty, Whoopi Goldberg, Naomi Campbell, Sean Diddy Combs, and more.

So just how many people were in the room when Donald Trump, Jr. held his sketchy meeting with a Kremlin-based lawyer? Is it safe to call it “collusion”? These highly topical questions are answered — in song and dance, naturally — by Randy Rainbow, who riffs off a number from Hamilton. Hit it!

Snapped by Stephen Busken, this new spread in Flaunt magazine  proves some lucky souls can dodge the Child Star Curse. Former Drake & Josh costar Drake Bell shows off his way-muscular body and talks about his new lease on life following several exceedingly dark and confusing years.
