People Are LIVID Over The All-Female Lord Of The Flies Remake — Find Out Why!

Filed under: Film Flickers

no title

Female-centric remakes are the newest Hollywood trend — and why shouldn't they be? Audiences are craving female-driven stories and nostalgia these days, so combining the two seems like a guaranteed slam dunk.

But not every male-driven classic works with the opposite gender… specifically, when the entire premise of a story revolves around boys being idiots because they're boys.

That's what people are frantically trying to point out after Warner Bros. announced plans to remake Lord of the Flies — but with young girls stranded on the island instead of boys!

Those who read William Golding's 1954 novel (or even Sparknoted it) say the story wouldn't make sense with all girls because it was meant to show the pitfalls of toxic masculinity.

Many critics mused that instead of turning into barbaric animals, a group of stranded girls would either peacefully work together or just leave each other the fuck alone.

Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that the remake will be written and directed by two men, Scott McGehee and David Siegel — which is hardly a sign we're in for the feminist coming-of-age film of the decade.

Queen Of Versailles Stars Jackie & David Siegel Open Up About The Death Of Their Daughter Victoria

Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad SadAddiction

Victoria Siegel's parents speak out about their daughter's passing.

We can't imagine what it must be like to lose a child.

Victoria Siegel was found unresponsive in her home last month, before being rushed to Health Center Hospital in Florida. Sadly, she was pronounced dead while at the medical facility, because of what we now know was a drug overdose.

After releasing the results of her autopsy, which was conducted back in June, Queen of Versailles stars Jackie and David Siegel are speaking out about their daughter's untimely passing.

Her father reveals that the 18-year-old suffered from anxiety, saying:

"Victoria was the perfect storm. She had trouble getting through high school, she didn't like school, so she wasn't making good grades. She did graduate, but when she graduated, she didn't plan to go to college, at least not right away."

He explained that a therapist prescribed her some Xanax, which is how she ultimately developed a drug addiction. The autopsy showed that Victoria's death was the result of a lethal combination of pain and depression medication — specifically methadone and sertraline.

Her parents say they believe it was cyberbullying that forced their daughter to turn to drugs that fateful day.

That weekend was her one-month anniversary with her boyfriend, a man who was eight years older than her and shared a daughter with his ex.

David and Jackie let Victoria stay home from a family trip to Utah so she could celebrate with him, since they were nervous she would relapse if they didn't.

The morning her body was found, her boyfriend's ex was paying him a visit, when she snatched his phone to text Victoria. David explains his daughter was being cyberbullied:

Queen Of Versailles Star Victoria Siegel's Autopsy Results Are In

So sad.

Last month, 18-year-old Victoria Siegel was found unresponsive in her family home, and was later pronounced dead after being rushed to Health Center Hospital in Florida.

Around the time she passed, a spokesperson for the family thought it was probable that the daughter of Queen of Versailles stars David and Jackie Siegel had taken drugs before she died. They conducted an autopsy so they could know for sure.

Now, results of the examination have been released, and reveal the 18-year-old was killed because of "acute methadone and sertraline toxicity," which refers to a lethal mixture of drugs.

Methadone is for pain medication, while Sertraline — AKA Zoloft — is a depression drug. Tragically, combining the two ultimately resulted in her death, which the coroner is calling an accident.

The spokesperson said that Victoria had been working to overcome her addiction, but on the morning of her death, she allegedly received hurtful texts sent from her boyfriend's phone that had been written by his ex.

He added it was possible this cyberbullying is what drove her to take drugs.

We can't imagine losing a child, and our hearts go out to everyone affected by Victoria's untimely passing.
