Here's the Scoop...

Bad news, fans of The View! Jedediah Bila is leaving the show after one season.

The 38-year-old conservative television personality surprised viewers on Monday's episode by abruptly announcing her departure from the ABC talk show.

"So this is my last day at The View," she said before thanking her co-hosts. "I appreciate all of you. I want to thank the viewers, even the ones that write me hate tweets. This is what I'm here for, I'm there to shake things up in life and television."

Bila didn't offer a reason for her exit, but did mention she is writing a book and working on other projects. She will also soon marry her longtime love and fiancé, Jeremy Scher.

"This has been a really great experience," the star told fans. "Mostly I just want to speak to the viewers and say we are nothing without you."

Page Six reported The View executive Hilary Estey McLoughlin informed staff of Bila's departure in a memo Monday morning.

"Jed is leaving our show, and today is her last day. She has new opportunities on the horizon, including her new book," the note reads. "Please join us in thanking Jed for her hard work, her dedication and her voice at the table."

Bila joined The View in Season 20, and briefly returned for Season 21, which premiered Friday. ABC is considering former Fox News contributor Meghan McCain to replace Bila, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"It's important to have conservative voices so I expect that they would fill this seat quickly," a source said.

Honestly, I'm surprised she lasted this long!

Be Well,
Steve

Linda Hamilton to return to 'Terminator' series in new film with James Cameron
Linda Hamilton is set to return to the Terminator franchise in a new film that is being produced by James Cameron and will also star Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The new film being directed by Deadpool helmer Tim Miller, brings Hamilton, Schwarzenegger and Cameron back together for the first time since 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Hamilton famously appeared in the series as Sarah Connor, the tough, action hero mother of John Connor who goes on to lead the human resistance in the future against Skynet and its army of robots.

"As meaningful as she was to gender and action stars everywhere back then, it's going to make a huge statement to have that seasoned warrior that she's become return," Cameron said about Hamilton joining the project during a private event, Deadline reported.

"There are 50-year-old, 60-year-old guys out there killing bad guys, but there isn't an example of that for women."

Cameron is planning a new Terminator trilogy and has created a writer's room with Miller to plan out the story that includes David Goyer, Charles Eglee, Josh Friedman and Justin Rhodes, noted The Hollywood Reporter.

Recently, Cameron praised Hamilton's performance as Sarah Connor in reference to the issues he had with Wonder Woman.

"I'm not saying I didn't like the movie [Wonder Woman] but, to me, it's a step backwards. Sarah Connor was not a beauty icon. She was strong, she was troubled, she was a terrible mother, and she earned the respect of the audience through pure grit. And to me, [the benefit of characters like Sarah] is so obvious. I mean, half the audience is female!" the filmmaker said.


Mark Hamill teases that next 'The Last Jedi' trailer will arrive in October
Mark Hamill teased the release date of the next trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi in a now-deleted tweet.

"Watch Monday Night Football on Monday October 9th- for no reason in particular," Hamill wrote to a fan Tuesday who stated to the actor that it was a good time to release another trailer, Polygon reported.

After deleting the tweet, Hamill seemed to backtrack on his statement when answering a fan's question regarding the proposed Oct. 9 release date.

"I have no idea. Disney will announce when they are ready. #WaitForVIIITrailer," he wrote.

The first and only trailer for The Last Jedi was released in April during Star Wars Celebration in Orlando. The clip featured Rey (Daisy Ridley) training with Hamill's Luke Skywalker. Finn (John Boyega), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and droid BB-8 were also shown along with an epic space battle.

Notably, a new trailer for The Force Awakens was released during an October airing of Monday Night Football in 2015.

Which musician was named the most dangerous celebrity to search online for by McAfee?

Cybersecurity software company McAfee has named Avril Lavigne the 2017 most dangerous celebrity due to the potential risk involved with searching for her name online.

The study conducted by McAfee for the eleventh year in a row, found that searching for the singer-songwriter generates the most dangerous results that could expose consumers to malicious websites and malware.

The 32-year-old is the first female musician to take the number one spot on the top ten list taking the place of Amy Schumer who topped last year's list.

Lavigne is followed by other musicians on the top ten list of most dangerous celebrities as searching for a celebrity's name and "free mp3" generated the most potentially malicious websites. In second place is Bruno Mars followed by, in order, Carly Rae Jepsen, Zayn Malik, Celine Dion, Calvin Harris, Justin Bieber, Diddy, Katy Perry and Beyonce.

"In today's digital world, we want the latest hit albums, videos, movies and more, immediately available on our devices," chief consumer security evangelist at McAfee Gary Davis said in a statement.

"Consumers often prioritize their convenience over security by engaging in risky behavior like clicking on suspicious links that promise the latest content from celebrities. It's imperative that they slow down and consider the risks associated with searching for downloadable content. Thinking before clicking goes a long way to stay safe online."
