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.

It seems Gina Rodriguez is disrespected black culture once again.

The controversial star of Jane The Virgin came under serious fire earlier this year for comments many viewed as anti-black. She is regularly accused of pitting Latinx and black actresses against each other, and her apologies always seem to ring hollow. Now she's in the headlines again, this time for saying the N-word while rapping along to a song. The video, posted to her Insta story, was quickly deleted and replaced by an awkward apology.

The apology was, once again, met with serious criticism. As Rodriguez faces imminent cancelation, she is also being dragged left and right on Twitter in the most hilarious way possible. Below are some of the best memes to commemorate this strange cultural moment.

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.

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

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!
