Here's the Scoop...

Here's a new segment I'm try out for Celebrity Nooz. It's called..."That's Still On?" Today: "The Miss America Pageant". I saw about 30 seconds of this show and couldn't believe my eyes, ears and eyes. It's 2016, can we please retire this sad display. Please!

Well, I guess if you're interested...Miss Arkansas Savvy Janine Shields was crowned Miss America 2017 in Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall Sunday night.

A student at the University of Arkansas, Shields performed a jazz dance to "They Just Keep Moving The Line" from the television drama series Smash for the talent portion of the pageant.

"Shields' acceptance of the highly-coveted crown is just the beginning of a journey that will take her to every corner of the nation and around the world during her year of service as Miss America 2017. She will embark on her national speaking tour about her platform, 'Eat Better, Live Better' and act as the official National Goodwill Ambassador for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals," noted a press release from the Miss America Organization.

The first runner-up for this year's pageant was Miss South Carolina Rachel Wyatt.

Oh, and they don't have the swimsuit competition. It's called the "Fitness" competition...which is the swimsuit competition with a new name. I'm not sure if anyone has noticed, but it's true.

I think I'm gonna start wearing a sash. I think I could pull it off.

Be Well,
Steve

'Mistresses' canceled after four seasons on ABC
ABC series Mistresses has come to a close after four seasons.

Rochelle Aytes, who starred as April Malloy, confirmed as much Saturday on Twitter after media outlets broke the news the day previous.

"Mistresses has unfortunately come to end of its road. Thank you to all the fans for supporting us! See you guys on the next journey!" the 40-year-old actress tweeted.

Word of the cancellation comes in the wake of the show's Season 4 finale, which aired Tuesday, Sept. 6. The episode killed off original cast member Yunjin Kim's character, Dr. Karen Kim.

Mistresses premiered in 2013 with Aytes, Kim, Jes Macallan and Alyssa Milano as stars. Milano left the series after two seasons, and was replaced by Jennifer Esposito, who departed after Season 3.

Executive producer Rina Mimoun had told TVLine prior to the finale that she and showrunner Josh Reims were hoping for a fifth and final season. She said they were planning "one more year of story" while also seeking "a graceful way to wrap up the series."


USA Network renews 'Queen of the South' for a second season
USA Network says it has ordered a second season of Queen of the South, its drug-trafficking drama starring Alice Braga.

Former 12 Monkeys executive producer Natalie Chaidez has signed on as showrunner for Season 2 of the adaptation of Arturo Pérez-Reverte's book La Reina Del Sur.

The program is a co-production from Fox 21 Television Studios and Universal Cable Productions. It co-stars Verónica Falcón, Justina Machado, Peter Gadiot, Hemky Madera and Gerardo Taracena.

"Queen of the South tells the powerful story of Teresa Mendoza, a woman who is forced to run and seek refuge in America after her drug-dealing boyfriend is unexpectedly murdered in Mexico. In the process, she teams with an unlikely figure from her past to bring down the leader of the very drug-trafficking ring that has her on the run," the network said in press notes.

"I remember the first show I did, he came back and he said, 'Michael you were absolutely terrible.' And he was so relieved because he thought, 'I don't have to worry about my son becoming an actor, he was so bad.'"
