They are going to have to make him super guaped to get him to spill tea.

While Mzansi gears up for the debut of Zodwa Wabantu's reality show, fans have once again come knocking at Cassper's door trying to convince him to shoot one.

The star has constantly been inundated with requests to shoot a reality show but dude never entertained the thought.

That was until this week when he was asked about the chances of him sharing his days with the camera and giving fans a more indepth glimpse of his life off stage.

Cassper conceded that he may be keen on the idea but they probably can't afford him.
You see, they would need to make him super guaped to get him to spill tea.

Did you spot this heartbreaking detail in Avengers: Endgame?

Avengers: Endgame might be crammed full of emotional revelations and character departures, but there's one heartbreaking detail that's only just been spotted.

As flagged by Reddit user 'WolfBrigadeII', it turns out Rocket Raccoon was sporting a touching tribute to his fallen comrade Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord), who up until the final battle sequence had been lost to Thanos' Infinity Snap.

As you can see from the above image, the militarised mammal spent some of the record-breaking movie wearing a nice red scarf.

But this doesn't actually belong to Rocket – as it was originally worn by Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2.
How touching, sweet rabbit.

5 burning questions 'Game of Thrones' didn't answer in the series finale.

Heading into the series finale of Game of Thrones, the biggest question showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss had to resolve was, “Who gets to sit on the Iron Throne?” (That query was so paramount, they even called the episode, “The Iron Throne.”) And that answer is… no one. But not in a Faceless Men kind of way

The Iron Throne will never have another occupant because it literally doesn’t exist anymore: In a moment of grief-fueled fury, Drogon destroyed the very thing his mother had fought so hard to win. And while Westeros won’t be without a ruler going forward — all hail King Bran the Broken — the symbol of royal power will have to evolve with the times. If good Maester Samwell has any say, maybe one day they’ll even have an Oval Office!

In the process of settling that particular story point, though, Benioff and Weiss neglected to address some of the questions raised by the finale, as well as several more that have built up in fans’ minds over the course of the past eight seasons. Here’s hoping George R.R. Martin decides to sew up one or more of these dangling plot threads if and when he finishes those last two books.

Who was the Night King, really?

Here’s the easy answer: He definitely isn’t Bran Stark! After the future king paid a mental visit to his zombie-raising royal counterpart in Season 6 — and acquired a scar for his troubles — the “Bran is the Night King” theory took root like House Stark’s weirwood. And even if you didn’t subscribe to that particular bit of fan speculation, there were plenty of other semi-plausible (or, at least, awesomely silly) explanations floating about. He’s one of the ancient Starks! No, he’s the Azor Ahai! No, wait! He’s Jon’s real father! Basically, fans were so starved for information about this supposedly unstoppable enemy, that they rushed in to fill the void left by Benioff and Weiss.

Update: Love Island's return date has finally been officially confirmed.

Mark your calendars for the reality show's return on June 3 – as announced on ITV2's Twitter feed on Monday morning (May 20) along with the hashtag #DayDotIsComing.

Original story (May 2): Caroline Flack has accidentally revealed when Love Island is returning – and viewers don't have long to wait.

The presenter recently teased the new series by posting an Instagram Story of her filming promos in front of a green screen.

Caroline then let slip that Love Island will be back in just three weeks, after joking that her personal trainer has put her through "utter hell" in preparation for the show.

"I have just trained with Bradley Simmons and he put me through utter hell. Making me do weights that I should not be lifting but he says we only have three weeks before Love Island starts or for Love Island prep, so we've got to work hard," she said.

Rapping in an American accent is like wearing a weave: Ntsiki Mazwai.

sparks debate on Twitter with controversial topics.

Poet and TV show host Ntsiki Mazwai is never one to mince her words.

Just as the fire she set on her TL when she said Cassper and AKA "only rap about alcohol" was beginning to die down, she added fuel when she threw shade at African rappers who rap in "American accents".

Ntsiki's followers immediately connected the tweet to the aforementioned rappers but also added that the poet had no right to judge creatives as it's usually a case of each to his own.

Some defended the rappers they thought Ntsiki was targeting, while others defended the weave-wearers.

'Avengers: Endgame' writers admit time-travel plot was so confusing they had to shoot new scenes to explain it.

Our whiteboard depicting time travel trails in 'Avengers: Endgame'

Warning: Major Avengers: Endgame spoilers below.

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely learned about the power of Back to the Future firsthand.

After early test screenings for Avengers: Endgame, the sixth Marvel Cinematic Universe entry the power duo wrote, they found audiences were severely confused by their rules of time travel.

McFeely pointed to the scene in the film's climactic showdown when present-day Nebula (Karen Gillan) shoots the still-villainous, time-traveling version of herself who has arrived with Thanos (Josh Brolin) to wreak havoc. "Much of the audience was expecting that Nebula to disappear. And we're going, 'No, we told you, it doesn't work that way!' So we really needed to underline it," he explained.

"It's a testament to Back to the Future, that everyone who walks into a time-travel movie goes, 'Well, I know how this works.'"

Said Markus: "We would try to imply our rules lightly and people would go, 'So it's Back to the Future.' And we very much needed to be not to be Back to the Future or our movie doesn't make sense, no offense to Back to the Future."
