Chrissy Metz

Bless Chrissy Metz.

In her new memoir This Is Me, the 37-year-old actress opens up about her impoverished childhood and suffering physical and emotional abuse from her stepfather.

The This Is Us actress tells People of her rough upbringing:

"I'm a tough cookie. But it's one of those things that attempts to break your spirit."

Chrissy's father left when the celeb was eight years old, leaving her mother, Denise, to raise three children on her own. Denise later welcomed another baby with a boyfriend who skipped town before meeting Metz's future stepfather, a man she called Trigger.

In detailing her romantic past with Fiddy, Viv claimed he was more interested in his career than getting freaky in the sheets with her. Admitting their sessions were "cherished and special," she wrote:

"Most of the time, I would be the one initiating sex, because I really enjoyed making love with him."

Sounds like a shining endorsement to us!

Except Fiddy didn't think so, and blasted his ex for exploiting their intimate past in order to… well, get rich or die tryin'. He shared:

Even O.J. Simpson's "lost" tapes have lost material.

In the upcoming special The Lost Confession, the football star apparently gives a rundown of how he "hypothetically" murdered ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.

Fox has already teased some pretty juicy stuff from Sunday's hour, but TMZ got an outtake that seems like one of the most shocking revelations.

Judith Regan, publisher of the infamous book If I Did It, says she got a call from an attorney saying "O.J. is ready to confess."

The big condition? They couldn't call the book just I Did It because then he would have to admit it to his children.

Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle In Time Is A Beautiful, Intergalactic Mess! See The MIXED Reviews!

| Filed under: Reese WitherspoonFilm FlickersDisneyOprah WinfreyBookzMindy Kaling

no title

There's no doubt that A Wrinkle In Time is historic as director Ava DuVernay is the first black woman to direct a film with a budget of over $100 million.

That said, is the Disney space odyssey any good?

Most critics say "yes," if you take the blockbuster for what it is: a bright, beautiful children's movie that (for the most part) captured the magic of its source material.

While every critic applauded DuVernay's colorful world — including the colorblind casting of lead actresses Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, and Mindy Kaling — they also agreed that the film is flawed.

Most reviewers felt that the plot was uneven, over-explained, and tonally in multiple galaxies at once. One critic even went as far to say the film felt more like a New Age self help book than an adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's beloved sci-fi novel. Snap!

See the reviews — which ranged from "not so bad" to "not so good" — below!
