<![CDATA[Aunt Viv Slams 'Fresh Prince' Star After Reunion Pic]]> Wed, 29 Mar 2017 23:38:15 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/213*120/vivmad.jpg

Aunt Viv is ticked off.

Janet Hubert, the original Aunt Viv of the 90s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” wrote a scathing Facebook post about former co-star Alfonso Ribeiro after he posted a reunion photo on Instagram. 

The reunion photo did not include her.

[[417487803, C]]

Hubert wrote in the post that she was not offended that she wasn’t invited to the “Fresh Prince” reunion. But she bashed “Carlton,” calling him a suck-up to Will Smith when they filmed the show. She also accused him of being in desperate need for attention.

Ribeiro posted a picture of the cast on Instagram and wrote, “Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family.” The photo included Will Smith, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Daphne Maxwell Reid and Joseph Marcell.

James Avery, who played Uncle Phil, passed away in 2013 due to surgery complications. Ribeiro wrote that he wished Avery was still alive to make the photo “complete.”

Hubert wrote on Facebook that there will “never be a true reunion of Fresh Prince” because she has “no interest” in seeing any of her former castmates.

However, this is not the first time she has gone after the “Fresh Prince” cast. She was replaced on the show by Reid after three seasons and has feuded with former castmates, most notably star Will Smith, on prior occasions.

Hubert plans to write a tell-all memoir about her time on the show.

<![CDATA['Breaking Bad' Pop Up Restaurant Headed to LA, NYC]]> Tue, 28 Mar 2017 17:59:15 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/213*120/a31c8c99-29d1-6f37-6d48-3d0a0259895d_Jimmy_Car_Sand.jpg

Somebody "Better Call Saul." 

Gus Fring's infamous chicken chain featured in the TV show "Breaking Bad" is coming to downtown Los Angeles this week, according to AMC. 

Fring's Albuquerque restaurant served as a headquarters for both his chicken and meth empires on AMC's critically-acclaimed series. 

The pop-up restaurant near the Arts District will feature Fring's famous curly fries on Wednesday and Thursday. 

It's unclear if the restaurant will actually serve chicken dinner, but like DEA Agent Hank Schrader says on the show: "We're not here for the chicken." 

The real-life Los Pollos Hermanos will also pop-up in New York in April. The pop-up recently made a stop in Austin at SXSW where series stars Bob Odenkirk (who plays Saul Goodman) and Giancarlo Esposito (who starred as Gus Fring) signed autographs and greeted fans.

You can stop by the Pollos pop-up at 1345 E. 6th St. in downtown LA from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. 

The third season of the "Breaking Bad" spin-off "Better Call Saul" premieres on AMC on April 10 at 10 p.m. EST.

<![CDATA[Meet the Man Whose Robot Prints, Burns Trump's Tweets]]> Wed, 29 Mar 2017 10:55:10 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/213*120/anti-trump-robot.jpg

This Twitter account is the latest to burn President Donald Trump online, and it's doing it in a whole new way.

On Tuesday, @burnedyourtweet joined Twitter with one purpose: sharing video of a robot printing Trump's latest tweets and burning them. 

Each time @realDonaldTrump has tweeted since the account went live, the account posts a video of the plastic-and-wire robot printing the tweet on a strip of paper, cutting it with scissors, holding it over a lighter and throwing the burning message in an ashtray. Almost all of the tweets reply to Trump's personal Twitter account, writing simply, "I burned your tweet."

After one day of actively tweeting at Trump, the account has over 10,000 followers. In its Twitter bio, the account describes itself as "giving Trump's tweets the attention they deserve."

The engineer behind the robot is David Neevel, a longtime creative technologist from Portland, Oregon, who now lives in Amsterdam after moving there for work. His website is full of gizmos he's created, and he confirmed to NBC that the robot and the Twitter account are his.

"The goal with this robot was the same as with a lot of my robots: finding small, but not necessarily simple, ways of making life better," Neevel said.

No fan of the 45th president, Neevel reasoned that Trump's tweets cause negative emotions for many, and the robot can alleviate those feelings because it is "immune" to them.

Neevel said that "burning each tweet allows people to acknowledge the tweet's existence and perform a small ritual of dismissal of it."

Trump is a longtime Twitter user with over 27 million followers. He's said it is a great way to get his message past a media he feels is biased against him, but he's also used it to share unverified claims without evidence, including recently that Barack Obama wiretapped him before the election. (The FBI director and other officials have said there is no evidence to support the claim; possible surveillance of Trump Tower is part of a controversial House investigation into Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 election.)

Neevel said that the tweet-burning robot project took him a few weeks to master. He has created many robots before that solve everyday problems, but this one involved new elements he hadn't encountered before, like teaching the robot to read and recognize tweets to print.

Neevel didn't expect the account to go viral overnight, but it was on Reddit's home page by Tuesday night. He said he hopes to expand on the account as well as shoot some background video that shows how the machine works.

<![CDATA[New Emoji: T-Rex and Zombies and Vampires, Oh My!]]> Tue, 28 Mar 2017 08:50:30 -0500 See the full set here.]]> See the full set here.]]> http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/213*120/Emoji-5-.jpg

Emoji are taking a trip back to the Jurassic period as dinosaurs join the ranks of the texting-friendly symbols.

T-Rex and brontosaurus are part of a slate of 56 new characters in 69 total variations joining the ranks of emoji, the Unicode Consortium announced Monday. They'll also let you get spooky with zombies and vampires, show activities like rock climbing and a yoga pose or add a little diversity to the faces in texts, with older adults and women in headscarves.

Most of the new emoji are smileys and people, bringing starry-eyed and exploding faces into the lexicon, and letting you show skepticism, nausea and even cursing. Among the 13 new food and drink emoji are steak, broccoli, chinese food container and pie.

The new emoji will be available in June, when Unicode version 10 is released. That makes them available to companies like Apple and Google, which make their own versions of the emoji for users to type.

Emojipedia mocked up how the new emoji might look on Apple devices. See them here.

It's the fifth set of emoji to be released.

<![CDATA[Chance the Rapper is ‘Looking for an Intern’]]> Tue, 28 Mar 2017 08:21:59 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/213*120/AP_17065779497714-sm.jpg

Chicago’s Chance the Rapper is looking for an intern with experience “putting together decks and writing proposals,” the musician posted on Twitter Monday.

“I want intern resumes formatted as creative decks, pitches or proposals,” he wrote, adding the email address ctinternsubmissions@gmail.com.

Chance, whose real name is Chancelor Bennett, did not elaborate on what specifically the intern would be working on—but that didn’t stop a torrent of applications from coming his way, mostly on Twitter.

Applications came from a motley crew of Twitter users, such as Olympic diver Riley McCormick who said he’s now a second-year law student in Chicago.

“Have lots of experiencing dealing with the media and background in entertainment and contract law,” McCormick tweeted, followed by the hashtag #TakeAChanceOnRiley.

Adam Singer, whose verified account profile says he is an analytics advocate for Google, tweeted at Chance “yo I can make you some hot beats.”

Others tweeted images of their resumes, argued about the issue of paid and unpaid internships, or, as was the case with a New York Times social media editor, tweeted a gif from the hit film “Mean Girls.”

The rapper did not immediately respond to request for comment on the nature of the internship.

Bennet recently made headlines and received praise from the likes of Michelle Obama after donating $1 million to cash-strapped Chicago Public Schools.

“While I’m frustrated and disappointed in the governor’s inaction, that will not stop me from continuing to do all I can to support Chicago’s most valuable resource—it’s children,” Bennet said at a press conference announcing the donation.

After his meeting with Rauner earlier this month, Bennett, who attended Jones College Prep, slammed the governor for vetoing $215 million in CPS funding last December.

Bennet also announced his organization, Social Works, will be accepting donations for CPS where he will match every $100,000 raised with an additional $10,000.

<![CDATA[Judge Clears Way For Katy Perry to Buy Convent]]> Tue, 28 Mar 2017 06:02:30 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/212*120/GettyImages-494135132.jpg

A judge last week cleared the way for singer Katy Perry to be able to buy a contested former convent in Los Feliz.

It's a legal battle that's pitted nuns against the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

The five remaining sisters of the former convent have not lived at the location for nearly two years.

Their attorney said they bought the property in the 1970s with their own money and have maintained it ever since, so when they wanted to sell it, they believed they had the right to do so.

In 2015, a judge ruled the sale of the Los Feliz fixture by the nuns to local businesswoman Dana Hollister was no longer valid.

Hollister bought the 9-acre property from the nuns of the order for $15.5 million, or so she thought. A legal battle ensued when the Archdiocese stepped in to say they were the owners. Another judge last summer ruled in their favor.

<![CDATA[Stroke Doesn't Keep Randy Travis from the Stage, Singing]]> Mon, 27 Mar 2017 18:44:32 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/211*120/Randy+Travis+and+his+wife.jpg

Since his stroke in 2013, country music superstar Randy Travis has had a hard time speaking in sentences.

"He's fortunate to even be here, " said his wife, Mary Davis.

Mary is always by Randy's side. She helps with everything from rehabilitation to TV interviews.

"People are like, this is not what you signed up for is it, " she recalled. "I say, 'Yes it is.  I signed up for it, whatever it is. Through thick and thin, better or worse, sickness and health, yes, I signed up for this.'"

This past weekend he sang "Amazing Grace" at the BeautyKind Unites benefit concert at AT&T Stadium.

When asked if it's difficult getting up on stage, Randy smiled and said, "Nope."

Mary added, "He knows that he doesn't sing like he did before the stroke and before the calamity, but I give him so much credit for the courage to do the best that he can do at this point in time."

And through faith, they believe even bigger blessings are ahead.
