Kevin Hart tries to repair his reputation

As a comedian, Kevin Hart wasn’t afraid to work blue, but he wasn’t really known for it. The comic and actor built a reputation as friendly, family man who beat the odds in Hollywood. Now, that reputation has come crashing down around him, and Hart is facing the consequences of not bending to what he calls “extortion.” The incident stems from a night out drinking and partying in which Hart was, unbeknownst to him, photographed and videoed in several compromising situations with women who were not his wife. Not long ago, Hart says he was contacted by someone who said... Read More >

Rapper Jay-Z makes public tribute to embattled QB Kaepernick

2017-09-25 by EPR Staff

The PR roller coaster that is Colin Kaepernick just won’t die. Even as the NFL seems to have left the quarterback out of this season for his outspoken views, others are taking the baton and running with it. Some, too, are making a public stand in favor of Kaepernick and his protest. Most recently, rapper and mogul Jay-Z stopped his first headlining New York show in several years to pay tribute to the embattled (possibly former) quarterback. Brooklyn’s own Jay-Z was well into his 90-minute set at Citi Field in Queens when he stopped to offer this: Dedication to Kaepernick... Read More >

Bortles not impressing in Jax

2017-09-11 by EPR Staff

Quarterback Blake Bortles was supposed to be the savior for the moribund Jacksonville Jaguars. He had all the skills: the arm, the pocket presence, the accuracy. Coming out of college he was a strong leader with a major upside. The Jags made Bortles the third overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. When he wore that hat for the first time, everyone was all smiles. Too Much To Blame Not too many folks have been smiling since. Blame the bad defense, the inconsistent running game or the spotty offensive line, but Bortles has not performed up to expectations. He’s shown signs... Read More >

Bill Nye the Accountant Guy

2017-09-08 by EPR Staff

Bill Nye burst onto the national consciousness as the host of a Saturday morning kids TV program. He was there to get kids excited about science, and, by most accounts, he did a great job at that. Then, for a few decades, Nye disappeared from the public view. He’d pop up here and there, but, for the most part, he was living on reruns of his program and pursuing other things … like studying other fields of science. Then, as politics began to grow more entrenched in modern politics, Nye reappeared, speaking directly to his former fans, many of whom... Read More >

2017-09-06 by EPR Staff

Six months ago, Bill O’Reilly was riding high. One of his top competitors at the network he helped put on the map, Megyn Kelly had jumped ship for two shows on a rival network. He was positioning his brand as the undisputed top dog at the network. Then, in about a week, it all came crashing down. Accused of sexual harassment, O’Reilly was out … humiliated and unemployable in the TV news entertainment industry. O'Reilly's Last Ditch Effort O’Reilly denied the allegations, but he was too hot to touch. Even some of his longtime supporters quickly abandoned him. O’Reilly went... Read More >

When tragedy strikes, Americans know how to come together. From endless lines of supply trucks and Red Cross buses full of volunteers to the “Cajun Navy” and tireless first responders, Americans have descended on southeast Texas to help those in need after Hurricane Harvey.

One of these helpful stars is Texas native, Jensen Ackles. You may know him as one-half of the lead in the long-running TV drama, Supernatural. Ackles is stuck in Vancouver filming on... Read More >

2017-08-10 by EPR Staff

Remember the old days, back when R Kelly was only known for R&B? Those days are long gone.
