Ashley Graham refutes Vogue cover rumors

Model, Ashley Graham, is refuting rumors that Vogue tried to hide her size on a cover.

Graham, who came to prominence as a plus sized model, has become a talisman for a movement in the fashion industry to portray more women of average or above average size as beautiful or fashionable as well. Graham was cast on her first ever cover of Vogue alongside other fashion icons such as Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner as well as four other women. Graham is the only “plus-sized” woman on the cover, where the seven women are close together with arms around the waists of their compatriots. Fans of Graham began to question why she was the only of the models to be covering her skin. Graham holds a hand on her thigh on the cover. Many began to question whether Vogue might have asked her to do so in order to cover the size of her leg.

“I still don’t get why they made you cover your leg!! And you are the only one posing like that,” pondered one fan.

“I chose to pose like one told me to do anything,” responded Graham.

Other fans also questioned whether or not the left arm of Hadid had been elongated in order to cover the stomach of Graham.

“You look amazing but I am still disappointed in Vogue … Gigi’s hand does not look normal to me … think they may have photoshopped you … god knows why!” wrote another fan.


Cast of Veep celebrates losing again at the SAG awards

The cast of HBO’s hit series Veep is celebrating … yet another Screen Actors Guild awards defeat.

Veep lost to Orange is the New Black for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series during the awards show Saturday, but you they didn’t seem that dejected about it, according to a People report.

The Veep stars posed in a photo after their loss, with some of the cast — including star Julia Louis-Dreyfus — putting their fingers in the shape of an “L” on their foreheads while frowning.

Tony Hale, seeming to drown away his sorrows after their second straight defeat, was chugging on a buttle of champagne for the black and white photo.

Louis-Dreyfus wrote a caption for the photo: “Us. Now. @SAGawards it’s an honor to be nominated.”

The cast can’t be too disappointed. Their show has proven to be a big success and they have plenty of other trophies for their mantles. Louis-Dreyfus herself is currently riding a four-year streak for winning best lead actress in a comedy series at the Emmys.

The cast was similarly goofy after losing at the Golden Globes earlier this month. The cast also did the “loser” signs then as well.

Veep premiered backed on April 22, 2012, and the fifth season of the series will premiere on April 24.


True Blood’s Nelson Ellis dies, age 39

True Blood fans were grief-stricken to learn of the death Saturday of series-favorite, Nelson Ellis, who planed Lafayette Reynolds on the show. He died of heart failure.

Ellis’s tragic death at age 39 was caused by years of alcohol and drug use, his family told The Hollywood Reporter (THR).

“Nelsans father has bravely agreed for me to share the circumstances of Nelsan’s heart failure,” said a statement released through the actor’s manager, Emily Gearson Saines. “After many stints in rehab, Nelson attempted to withdraw from alcohol on his own. According to his father, during his withdrawal from alcohol he had a blood infection, his kidneys shut down, his liver was swollen, his blood pressure plummeted, and his dear sweet heart raced out of control.”

Ellis was pronounced dead on July 8 after spending four days in the hospital. His family decided to come forward with details of his death in the hope of saving others.

“Nelsan was ashamed of his addiction and thus was reluctant to talk about it during his life,” the statement said. “His family, however, believes that in death he would want his life to serve as a cautionary tale in an attempt to help others.”

The beloved actor, whose strong and sensitive portrayal of a gay black man on True Blood won him many accolades, was born in Harvey, Illinois. After attending Oxford University and Columbia College in Chicago, he graduated from the renowned Julliard School, the THR report said.

“We were extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Nelson Ellis,” said HBO, in a statement. “Nelson was a longtime member of the HBO family whose groundbreaking portrayal of Lafayette will be remembered fondly within the overall legacy of True Blood. Nelson will be dearly missed by his fans and all of us at HBO.”
