The first moments of the ‘And Just Like That…’ premiere featured Carrie making a shocking discovery that changes her life forever. SPOILERS AHEAD!

Life can change in an instant. Carrie Bradshaw knows that first-hand. The Sex and the City revival, And Just Like That…, debuted on December 9 with two new episodes. The first episode ends with a devastating twist: Big dies.

Carrie goes to Lily’s concert recital, while Big stayed behind. Carrie and Big had initially planned to go to the Hamptons together, but Carrie decides to support Charlotte and Lily. Big tells Carrie that he’s going to stay home and take a Peloton class.

Big Dies 

Big is in the midst of a Peloton power ride as Lily wows at her recital. He texts Carrie that they should go to the Hamptons that night when she gets back. As he heads to take a shower after his workout, he feels a pain in his chest. He drops his phone and collapses as the water runs. Big’s phone is just out of reach.

After getting Big’s text, Carrie doesn’t go out with her friends for a drink. She comes back to her apartment and finds it eerily quiet. She calls out for John.

When Carrie walks into their bathroom, she finds Big on the floor. It was almost as if he wanted to get one more look at her before he died. Carrie screams John’s name and runs to his side. She cradles Big in her arms and cried as he passes, her beloved Manolo Blahnik’s getting ruined in the shower. “And just like that, Big died,” Carrie says in the voiceover.

In the second episode, Carrie grieves the loss of Big. She immediately calls Miranda, who rushes to be by Carrie’s side. Miranda arrives just as Big’s body is being removed. “What do I do now?” a broken Carrie asks. Miranda holds Carrie that night in bed. When Carrie closed her eyes, she remembers the first time she saw Big all those years ago.

Charlotte helps Carrie plan Big’s funeral. Charlotte breaks down in tears at the funeral home and admits that she feels guilty for making Carrie go to the concert. Carrie tells Charlotte that Big died of a heart attack, and this is not her fault at all.

Samantha Sends Her Love

Carrie arrives at Big’s funeral before everyone else. She notices flowers on the casket, something she explicitly said she didn’t want. The funeral directors say they wanted Carrie to make a game-time decision and hand Carrie the card that accompanied the flowers. “Love, Samantha,” the card read. Samantha had a falling out with the girls and now lives in London, but she still sends her love to Carrie when she needs it the most. Carrie decides to keep the flowers.

Miranda says a few words at Big’s funeral, along with Big’s older brother. Big’s brother says that Big had just told him that he’d “never been happier in his life.” Todd Rundgren’s “Hello It’s Me” plays during the service.

Later, Carrie texts Samantha to thank her for the flowers. She then receives Big’s ashes at her apartment, and she calls Miranda and Stanford to help her deal. Miranda, Stanford, and Charlotte have been taking turns staying with Carrie. When Charlotte shows up to bring magazines to Carrie, she realizes that Carrie didn’t call her right away. A hurt Charlotte walks away, and Carrie begs Charlotte not to make this about her.

Charlotte confesses that she still feels so guilty about the concert. Charlotte tells Carrie that there’s “no reason” she would call Stanford over her unless she was mad. Carrie admits that she didn’t call because Charlotte gets so emotional. Charlotte says that Carrie seems so mad, and Carrie doesn’t deny it. She’s mad at herself. “I should have gone to the Hamptons with Big on Wednesday night like I wanted to!” Carrie screams.

Charlotte tells Carrie that she can’t blame herself for what happened to Big. That night, Carrie struggles to fall asleep. She asks Miranda for a sleeping pill, but she can’t take one for another 5 hours. Carrie stays awake for the next 5 hours as her world finds its new axis. Big is gone and he’s never coming back. Carrie’s life was on one route, and now that route is unpaved. The future looks a lot lonelier. New episodes of And Just Like That will premiere Thursdays on HBO Max.

Check out the trailer below:

Talk about star-studded, riiiiight?!

Phat Tuesdays features so many of today’s most famous comedians and personalities, including Anthony Anderson, Tichina Arnold, Nick Cannon, Dave Chappelle, Snoop Dogg, Cedric the Entertainer, Tiffany Haddish, Steve Harvey, Lil Rel Howery, Regina King, Jo Koy, Luenell, Flame Monroe, Jay Pharoah, Craig Robinson, JB Smoove, Chris Tucker, Kym Whitley, and more, and tells the unbelievable story of how Guy Torry moved mountains to launch an all-Black comedy night at The Comedy Store. What started as an experiment in ‘90s Los Angeles turned into a must-see, hilarious experience, elevating Black voices to have their turn on the stage. In addition to Torry and Hudlin, Byron Phillips also executive produces, along with Jeff Hasler, Brian Lovett, and Jeff Bumgarner for Original Productions, and Kelsey Grammer and Tom Russo for Grammnet Productions. Joshua Firosz, Darren Toon for Original Productions, and Jordan McMahon for Grammnet Productions serve as co-executive producers.

Loaded with exclusive interviews with comedians and celebrities who were there—either performing on stage or in the audience—and never-before-seen footage of legendary comedy sets from back in the day, Phat Tuesdays is the inspiring story of how a little experiment to help Black comedians following the tragedy of the 1992 LA riots turned into a triumphant must-see experience. The showcase regularly brought together people from all walks of life—icons and ex-cons, stars and starlets, pros and regular joes—for one purpose, laughter, and became the most popular comedy show in Hollywood during the ‘90s.

‘Phat Tuesdays’ arrives on Prime Video February 4th

Rachel Brosnahan Wears Open, Midriff Top With Nothing Underneath In Stunning Look—Photo

Rachel Brosnahan

Rachel Brosnahan, 31, is showing a different side to her buttoned-up character on ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,’ while promoting the show’s 4th season on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’.

Leave it to Rachel Brosnahan to prove rocking a midriff is classy — always! The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star stole the show in a stunning two-piece, blue print ensemble for her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on January 19 to promote the fourth season of her hit show. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin native was snapped heading into the studio in her head-to-toe blues, but appeared to be feeling the opposite with her big smile and wave. Rachel sported a maxi skirt that grazed her ankles, revealing strappy, blue-suede pumps, while her taut tummy peaked out through her flowing top. Rachel completed the look with a mini blue bag in hand. Boom. Fashion icon.

However, not everyone always agreed with how Rachel presented herself, shockingly! The stylish star once shared that prior to breaking into show biz, she was told she’d have to change her appearance if she wanted to make it big. “Early on, you get a lot of feedback on auditions,” she explained at a 92nd Street Y Q&A in 2019. “People give it to you like it is [the] Bible, like it is truth,” she said. “I’ve been told so many times I had to change my hair and learn to do my makeup and ‘buy different clothes’ . . . It starts to get into your head.”  Nowadays, it looks like Rachel is making her own fashion bible, and topped with her talent, she is unstoppable, as this will definitely be another big year for the Emmy winner.

Along with returning as her Maisel character Midge, the actor will also be starring in the upcoming film Dead For a Dollar with Willem Dafoe, Christopher Waltz and Benjamin Bratt. Rachel also recently shared on Instagram that she has indeed been feeling fresh so far in 2022. “Fresh flowers. Fresh cut. Fresh face. Fresh fit. Did you know if you type fresh enough times in a row it doesn’t look like a real word anymore?” she wrote, then added, “Do your worst 2022.” 

2022 is definitely no match for Rachel! Like many TV and film productions, there was a delay in Mrs. Maisel’s filming in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Season 4 production finally got underway for season 4 last January in New York City. Fans have basically been waiting since the December 2019 announcement for this season. And we are here for it! Clearly, Rachel is too!

Antonio Brown Talks CTE, Mental Health & More With Brandon Marshall And Nick Young [Video]

By now, everyone is aware of Antonio Brown’s departure from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the middle of a game. After he left, many blamed mental health and claimed people who care about AB should check on him. But honestly, in my opinion, AB has seemed more normal than ever during this whole situation.

The baller has been enjoying life while hitting NBA games, spending time with Kanye West, and just relaxing. He seems to show no signs of any mental breakdown or issues at all, it really seems like his coach disrespected him and told him to leave, so he did.

AB has already done the NELK podcast and opened up about the situation, but now, a preview has dropped of him on the I AM ATHLETE podcast with Brandon Marshall and, for some reason, Nick Young.

“Why every time something happens bad, or how someone reacts, ‘Aw, he’s crazy, there’s something wrong with his mental health,’” Brown said in the preview clip from the “I AM ATHLETE” show.

“There’s nothing wrong with my mental health. Someone told me to get the f**k out of here. I’m not passive-aggressive.”

The interview releases this Monday, but until then, you can watch the preview clip below.
