The word of the day is SAD.

That's because one of Sesame Street's most longtime residents Maria is retiring after an amazing 44 years!

Maria — played by actress Sonia Manzano — joined the show way back in 1971, a year we're assured really existed, and not just on TV!

Sonia announced her retirement during an address at the American Library Association Annual Conference on Tuesday to both shock and grief from fans.

During her time on the Street, the Latina role model won 15 Emmys for her writing and was nominated twice for Outstanding Performer in a Children's Series for her time onscreen.

The next generation to watch Sesame Street will be a little worse off for not having her around. See some of her best moments through the years (below)!

Hugh Jackman Hanging Up Iconic Claws?! Actor Hints That Wolverine 3 May Be His Last Portrayal Of The X-Men Character!!

no title

Some could argue that Wolverine is the greatest comic book superhero ever.

But NO ONE could argue against the fact that watching Hugh Jackman play Wolverine is one of the greatest joys in life!

But the actor has dropped a major hint on Saturday that suggests he may hang up the claws after Wolverine 3, which is coming out to theaters in March 2017, is completed.

Here's what he wrote on Instagram:


One last time? Oh no! Does that mean what it seems to imply?!

Hugh has been playing the character since the first X-Men movie in 2000 so we can understand why Hugh may want to stop portraying the comic book character, but Hugh has expressed in the past how much he loves being Wolverine so we kind of thought he'd be doing this forever.

But we guess all good things must come to an end. We just hope that end is one spectacular send-off that's fitting of how amazing Hugh Jackman has been as Wolverine all of these years!!

Jimmy Kimmel Says Farewell To Barbara Walters With A Beautiful Rose Bouquet! Adorable Pic HERE!!!

Filed under: TV NewsBarbara WaltersJimmy KimmelCute!

Remember the time Jimmy Kimmel interviewed Barbara Walters on his late night show and it was the most awkward conversation in human history?

Well, it looks like all of that uncomfortableness is a dwindling stream of water under a very tall and immaculately constructed bridge!

When JK — OMG, we just realized those were his initials, no wonder why he pulls so many pranks — visited the voluptuous bosom of The View this week, he and Babs shared a most intimate moment! He brought the lovely lady a brilliant bouquet of fresh flowers (above)!

Aww!! How sweet!

Is it because they're secret lovers? Probz not, seeing as how he's married. Is it because she's secretly his mom and this was a late Mothers' Day gift? Well, we guess that's a possibility, but no just kidding it's not.

Jimmy brought her flowers because he knew the prolific TV host was retiring at the end of the week and he wanted to give her a deliciously scented send off!

What a class act, that one!! We're all gonna miss you, Barbara!!
