Obamacare critic Tomi Lahren says she's on parents' insurance at Politicon

Conservative political commentator and Obamacare critic Tomi Lahren admitted she is on her parents' insurance plan Saturday during a highly anticipated event with comedian and Trump critic Chelsea Handler.

The two appeared together for a one-on-one session at Politicon, which calls itself an “unconventional political convention," in Pasadena, California. It is in its third year. With diverging political views, the pair were virtually guaranteed to debate.

Handler opened her “conversation” with Lahren by saying, “This isn’t a debate; I am interviewing her."

Handler added that the 2016 presidential election revealed how little understanding she had of people “who are not necessarily like [her].”

Before the event, Lahren seemed eager to debate, referring to the convention as a “storm” and tweeting,”Hey LA. Let’s do this,” in advance of her session.

And debate they did, on issues as diverse as the president’s attempt to ban transgender Americans from the armed forces via Twitter, the ongoing healthcare conundrum and rapper and one-time beverage mogul 50 Cent. 

At one point, Handler hand-waved a mention of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and called President Donald Trump a “baboon.”

“She’s not the president,” Handler said. “She’s not doing anything that affects you. So (expletive) Hillary. We have to deal with this baboon.”

Over the course of the debate, Lahren admitted to continuing to oppose Obamacare despite the fact that the law allows the 24-year-old to stay on her parents’ health insurance in the absence of insurance provided by her employer.

Here’s how that exchange went down:

HANDLER: “Do you have a health care plan or no?”

LAHREN: “Well luckily, I’m 24, so I am still on my parents’ [plan].”

AUDIENCE: *laughs*

HANDLER: “Stop, stop, stop, she’s being honest.

Lahren, whose firing from The Blaze, her ensuing lawsuit and then a settlement were well-documented, announced in May that she would be joining a pro-Trump PAC called the Great America Alliance.

Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon to star in new TV series, report says

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon have been capturing hearts on the silver screen for over a decade. But the pair reportedly have decided to partner up to take on another medium — television.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the two are working on a series about “morning shows and the larger New York media scene.” No word on whether the pair will play anchors, meteorologists or something else entirely.

The untitled show has brought on a number of heavy-hitting producers and companies, including some that have worked on huge pieces like “House of Cards” and “Harry Potter," according to the report. At this point, the group who worked on the series are still shopping their project around to possible buyers, but the Hollywood Reporter reports that the show may land on Netflix or HBO rather than standard cable networks.

Both women have received Emmy nods — Witherspoon for her role in “Big Little Lies” and Aniston for her portrayal of Rachel Green in “Friends.” In fact, both women appeared together in “Friends” in a series of episodes when Witherspoon guest-starred in a role as Aniston’s little sister. But their new project will be the first time Aniston has had a solid role on the small screen since “Friends” went off the air in 2004.

Hours after Scaramucci’s interview, in which he ripped White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and chief political strategist Steve Bannon, Cantone went to work on Comedy Central’s “The President Show” on Thursday, CBS News reported.

"I'm gonna fire so many people," Cantone said in his role as Scaramucci, who was speaking with Darrell Hammond, who played President Donald Trump on the show. "I don't know who it's going to be, Reince, but I'm gonna get to the bottom of the leakage in the White House. You hear me, Reince?" 

Ellen DeGeneres fires back at Trump's tweet about transgender military ban

Ellen DeGeneres certainly doesn’t agree with President Donald Trump’s latest announcement about banning transgender individuals from joining the military.

>> Trump: Transgender people won't be allowed in the military

Following the news of the ban, the TV host shared a message with fans on Twitter to express her disagreement.

>> These 18 countries allow transgender people in their militaries

“We should be grateful to the people who wish to serve, not turn our backs on them. Banning transgender people is hurtful, baseless and wrong,” DeGeneres wrote.

DeGeneres previously expressed her dismay when she used humor to address Trump’s refugee ban. In January, DeGeneres used her film “Finding Dory” to explain why she disagreed with the ban.

>> 69 years ago, Truman ordered 'right and just' desegregation of US armed forces

“I don’t get political, but I will say that I am against [the ban],” she said. “I am not going to talk about the travel ban. I am just going to talk about the very non-political, People’s Choice Award-winning film ‘Finding Dory.’”

“Dory arrives in America with her friends, Marlon and Nemo, and she arrives at the Marine Life Institute behind a large wall. And they all have to get over the wall. And you won’t believe it, but that wall has almost no effect in keeping them out,” she said. “The other animals help Dory. Animals that don’t even need her. Animals that have nothing in common with her. They help her even though they are completely different colors, because that’s what you do when you see someone in need. You help them.”

In November, when Trump was first elected president, DeGeneres shared an inspiring message with her viewers to help bring give hope to Americans who were despondent about the poll results.

“You may have heard that there was a presidential election on Tuesday. The big winner was alcohol,” she said at the time. “Obviously, a lot of people were disappointed with the results. My job is to be hopeful and make everybody feel good, so I am going to keep doing that as long as I can.”

Joanna Gaines will not leave 'Fixer Upper' to focus on cosmetics line

Joanna Gaines has been addressing rumors about her relationship to her husband, Chip Gaines, and her career in the last few months. However, one rumor in particular prompted her to take to social media and make a public statement.

>> Read more trending news

Joanna Gaines posted on her Facebook page Friday to address rumors that she’s leaving HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” to work on a skin care line. She used the opportunity to make it clear that the rumors are not true.

“I wanted to take a minute to let y’all know that it’s simply not true,” she wrote. “This is a SCAM! We have nothing to do with it and have been trying to stop it for some time.”

Joanna had previously written about the scam in a blog post back in April, writing, “We are currently filming season 5 of the show ... I am not getting into the business of facial creams ... Don’t buy the facial cream, friends.”

“Don’t believe everything you read,” she also advised fans.

Joanna Gaines encouraged fans to spread the information and to report any “fake news websites or sponsored ads.”

According to Cincinnati’s WCPO, rumors that Joanna Gaines was working with a new skin care line, Derma Folia Renewal, arose in April. Many people spread the rumor on social media, and fans purchased products with the belief that they were being promoted by Joanna Gaines. A representative for Joanna Gaines said that month that the rumors were untrue and that she was unaffiliated with the products.

WATCH: Michael Phelps races great white shark ... sort of

Michael Phelps may be fast, but apparently not as fast as a great white shark.

>> Read more trending news

In Discovery's highly anticipated Shark Week special "Phelps vs Shark: Great Gold vs Great White," the 28-time Olympic medalist wore a special wetsuit and monofin to take on a great white – well, sort of – in a 100-meter race.

>> Watch the clip here

Unfortunately for fans, Phelps, with a time of 38.1 seconds, lost by 2 seconds. But that wasn't the biggest disappointment: Instead of facing a real shark, Phelps was shown alongside a computer simulation of a great white. The shark's "time" in the race was based on speed data collected by scientists.

Fans were not amused.

Kelly Ripa made the announcement on Thursday morning’s episode of “Live with Kelly and Ryan.”

“We’ve been talking about it for a little while but I am happy to confirm … with absolute confirmation that Ryan Seacrest is returning (as) the host of ‘American Idol,’” Ripa said.

“(I’m) very, very excited,” Seacrest said. “First of all, I don't know if you've ever been in a 15-year relationship and then, for a reason that you really don't know, you break up … I thought, 'Gosh, it'd be great to get back together at some point.’"

The announcement followed three months of negotiations, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

ABC announced in May that it planned to bring back “American Idol” for the 2017-2018 season. The show aired 15 seasons on Fox before the network announced in 2015 that 15th season would be its last.

Richard Hawk, coroner for Coweta County, Georgia, confirmed to WSBTV.com that John Bernecker died Wednesday.

Bernecker had been seriously injured in a fall and was taken by medical helicopter to a hospital.

“They were doing a stunt and something went wrong,” Hawk told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “He was flown to Atlanta Medical Center where he was pronounced brain dead July 12 at (6:30 p.m.).”

Hawk didn’t have further details about the circumstances that led to the accident. According to an accident report, Bernecker fell 25 feet onto concrete.

Production on the AMC action-packed zombie series has been halted following the fall.

Bernecker had a long and impressive list of film credits. His work included Marvel blockbuster “Black Panther,” due out next year, and “Rampage,” which just wrapped. Production temporarily halted on “Rampage” when another stuntman, Dave Macomber, was injured.

Friends, loved ones and industry figures have been flooding social media accounts with words of grief and tribute. “Transformers” series executive producer Michael Bay posted this somber message:

Bernecker’s girlfriend, Jennifer Cocker, posted a message of anguish while he remained hospitalized.

“John deserves to be seen by every neurosurgeon and doctor there is until one of them sees the life we all know he has in him and bring him back to us,” she wrote. “This isn’t fair.”

Other messages of support came from those who have worked with Bernecker:

The tragedy happened to coincide with the latest legal action stemming from a fatal accident on the set of “Midnight Rider.” Crew member Sarah Jones, 27, died when a train came hurtling down the track where the film crew was setting up for a scene. The production did not have permission to film on the train trestle outside Jesup.

Director Randall Miller reached a plea deal that avoided a trial and absolved his wife and business partner, Jody Savin. In pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespassing, Miller received a sentence of two years in jail and eight on probation, in addition to a $20,000 fine.

Jones’ parents, Richard and Elizabeth, settled a lawsuit filed against numerous plaintiffs involved with the case, but CSX, which owns the tracks where the unauthorized production work was taking place, is mounting a defense.

In his testimony on Thursday, Richard Jones acknowledged that the crew was trespassing but said CSX should have taken action to prevent the fatal wreck, Deadline reported.
