This summer Hulu announced that the streaming service will be producing a new drama called Rodham.

The show will imagine an alternate version of Hillary Rodham's life in which she never married Bill Clinton. It's interesting enough as a premise, and it will probably get a lot of buzz. My only problem is that I already watched it in March, back when it was called Tiger King.

Sarah Palin Was on "The Masked Singer" and America Is Doomed

The former vice presidential candidate sang "Baby Got Back," because she's #relatable.

The Masked Singer is simultaneously a mysteriously popular reality show and a furry's wet dream.

The singing competition series combines the celebrity appeal of Dancing With the Stars with the good old-fashioned talent contest of American Idol or The Voice. Notable public figures sport particularly frightening head-to-toe ensembles and take turns singing songs, and the judges must guess who is in the suit. And, as is the case with any reality show, things get cringey—especially when a costumed Sarah Palin gives a rendition of Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back."

That's correct: The one-time vice presidential candidate (and Most Famous Alaskan Probably Ever) removed a monstrous bear head (as the entire crowd yelled "take it off," which isn't at all creepy) to reveal her identity before diving into the 1992 hit. She made sure to note that she tweaked the lyrics to be about men's butts instead. Because we can excuse a former governor for opposing same-sex marriage and being a life member of the NRA if they're funny and relatable, right? Right?

Before host Nick Cannon signed off, Palin assured the crowd: "This is something that our country needs right now, too." I can't say I agree, considering I'm typing this through an anxiety-ridden self-quarantine, but to each their own. Funny and relatable! We are in hell!

The 7 Craziest Things That Have Happened Since Trump Was Elected

It's Been Three Years Since Election Night, And It's Time Look Back on the Chaos

The Sexiest Celebrity Halloween Costumes EVER

Sure, "Trick or Treat" and all that good stuff, but let's be honest, Halloween is all about the sexy costumes.

2019 has been a calamity of a year.

Trump thinks the constitution is "phony" and doesn't apply to him because of his wealth, the amazon is still very much engulfed in flames, and global warming is set to decimate humanity in less than a decade. It all seems quite dire, which is why Halloween is welcomed warmly this year. It's time to give 'em pumpkin to talk about that isn't impending doom. It's time to lift your "spirits," realize life is "gourd" and get done up in boo-tiful costumes to help distract from the actual spooky terror going on outside. To get you amped up, here are a few of the sexiest costumes ever!

Kim Kardashian West as Cat Woman

The Kardashian Klan has dawned a lot of gorgeous costumes over the years, but frankly Kim Kardashian's Cat Woman costume of 2012 takes the cake. Kanye as Batman is also additionally something we can't unsee, but for far different, not sexy reasons.


Sean Spicer Is Basically RoboCop

Sean Spicer's character arc on Dancing With the Stars is ripped straight from RoboCop.

It seems like only months ago we were talking about Season 26 of Dancing With the Stars.

Oh wait, it actually was. But when a TV show sees decent ratings, the network keeps a good thing going. So, we are into Season 27 of the show, full of another batch of "stars" shaking their stuff and twirling their torsos for the chance to win the much-coveted Mirrorball Trophy.

While the celeb-factor may not be abundant with A-listers, seeing famous faces we have not thought about in a while combined with some fresh ones on the radar now, the show is sure to be filled with fun-to-watch footwork as the contestants move to the music.

So, who is on board for the latest season of DWTS? The new crew was revealed on Good Morning America today (Sept. 12) and fans were seemingly pleased with the picks.

Bobby Bones (Country music radio personality, host of "The Bobby Bones Show") with Sharna Burgess

DeMarcus Ware with Lindsay Arnold (NFL superstar)

Joe Amabile with Jenna Johnson (The Bachelorette Season 14 and Bachelor in Paradise Season 5, best known as "Grocery Store Joe")

John Schneider with Emma Slater (The Dukes of Hazzard actor)

Juan Pablo DiPace with Cheryl Burke (Mamma Mia! and Fuller House actor)

Milo Manheim with Witney Carson (Star of Disney Channel Original Movie, Zombies)

Alexis Ren with Alan Bersten (Social media sensation and model)

Danelle Umstead with Artem Chigvintsev (Paralympic adaptive skier)

Evanna Lynch with Keo Motsepe (Harry Potter actress)

Nancy McKeon with Val Chmerkovskiy (Facts of Life actress)

Nikki Glaser with Gleb Savchenko (Comedian/host of "You Up with Nikki Glaser" on SiriusXM)

Tinashe with Brandon Armstrong (R&B music superstar)

And if seeing these stars doesn't feed your fix for reality TV dancing competitions, ABC is launching a similar show for the younger set come this October. Dancing With the Stars Juniors will put mini versions of the movers and shakers on the dance floor to fight it out via salsas and mambos.

As per E! News, "Dancing With the Stars premieres Monday, Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. on ABC." Tune in, tap your toes, and take another season out of your schedule to watch these bigshots bust a move on the ballroom floor. Good luck to the Season 27 stars…we'll be watching!
