New HBO Documentary Gives A Brutally Honest Look Into The Lives Of Single Moms Living In Poverty — This Vid Will Really Make You Think
HBO isn't bringing dragons, vampires, or super hot detectives this time around!
The premium channel is unleashing a documentary on the world starring a single mom named Katrina Gilbert, and it's called Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life and Times of Katrina Gilbert!
It is estimated that 42 million single mothers and the 28 million children they support live in poverty or on the brink of it.
The doc is hoping to showcase the hard lives of single motherhood through Katrina Gilbert, a single mom of three, who earns $9.49 an hour in her job as a certified nursing assistant.
In the trailer, Katrina says:
"I didn't expect to be a single mom of three children but I am and I'm trying to deal with it the best way I can."
The documentary will premiere on HBO on March 17, however the message of the movie is VERY important, which is the reason why they're also releasing it FREE online at HBO.com, ShriverReport.org, and YouTube from March 17-24.
So no one has any excuse NOT to watch it!
Check out the powerful trailer up (above) !!!
Captain America Sequel Tracking An $80 Million Opening! Expected To Grow As Big As Chris Evans' Biceps!
Box office experts are tracking it to surpass $80 million in its opening weekend alone!
The sequel is expected to benefit from what's called the "halo effect" of mega-hit The Avengers. Cap's teammates already saw big jumps in their opening weekend takes.
The first Thor took in $65.7 mil, but after The Avengers, the thunder god made it rain with $85.7 million! Likewise, Tony Stark got even richer, going from $128.1 million for Iron Man 2 to $174.1 million in Iron Man 3.
That's over a 30% increase in both franchises! Captain America: The First Avenger also opened to about $65 mil, so $80 mil is looking like an easy hurdle!
We guess green is the operative word!

The girls are back!
Lena Dunham and co. attended the Television Academy presents An Evening with Girls event in NYC last night, and gave us an interesting fashion moment!
Lena, of course, was the most unique-looking in an Isa Arfen shift dress with a colorful eye print right on the front, while Allison Williams got a bit "edgy" in wrinkled-on-purpose drawstring capris and an oversized white blouse.
She's like a chic pirate! A pirate that wears Louboutins!
Zosia Mamet and Jemima Kirke remained the most low-key, with Zosia in a simple blazer and pinstriped button-down and Jemima in a pretty but rather forgettable green frock.
One of these days they should really wear all matching outfits a la vintage Destiny's Child! Ha!

Pawn Stars Star Victim Of Death Hoax! See The Proof That This History Channel Persona Is No Longer History!
Chumlee's alive! We're so thankful he hasn't gone off to the great pawnshop in the sky.
Pawn Stars' Chumlee (Austin Russell) was the victim of a death hoax as there was a report that he had died, but he managed to disprove his premature departure on Twitter:
May we live long, Rich forever.
— Austin Russell (@chumlee_) March 12, 2014
Of course, Austin is quoting Rick Ross' Bound 2 Freestyle and likewise we're bound 2 believe he's alive from this tweet!
In addition, Austin's co-star Rick Harrison confirmed that Chumlee did not meet his maker (or try to bargain down his cost with the maker):
Breaking news: CHUMLEE IS ALIVE & WELL! He is actually filming today but we all really appreciate everyone's concern!
— Rick Harrison (@GoldSilverPawn) March 12, 2014
Glad to hear that Chumlee is still alive and well! We're so proud of all the weight loss he's accomplished recently, too!
Thanks for the memories?
The world may be watching the last remnants of Teen Mom 2 because
