Comedian John Oliver, who started his own parody "church" called Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption to highlight the predatory nature of some televangelists, recently revealed that the joke paid off in a big way.
Sunday on his show "Last Week Tonight," the British host revealed that viewers had already sent him thousands of dollars with their letters after he told them earlier this month to "sow a seed" — mocking the style of preachers like Robert Tilton and Kenneth Copeland.
"To be honest, slightly more of you responded than we were expecting," "Megareverend" Oliver said while surrounded by hundreds of letters, two bags of actual seeds, and beef jerky, among other things. more >>

A new report alleged Wednesday that former "19 Kids and Counting" star Josh Duggar stepped out on his wife, Anna, twice while she was pregnant with their fourth child to have "rough sex" with 28-year-old stripper and porn star Danica Dillon. His family also revealed in a statement that he has now checked himself into a treatment center.
Dillon, whose real name is Ashley Lewis, details her alleged encounters with Josh in an In Touch magazine report where she said she first met the young father at the Gold Club in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in mid-March. They reconnected a month later at Creekside Cabaret in Colmar, Pennsylvania.
"He walked into the Gold Club like a normal patron and said he'd been a fan for a long time and has watched my career grow ... and that he loved watching my very first scene on [an adult website]," Dillon told the magazine. "Then it got creepy." more >>
Season 4 return of "Arrow" this fall is much anticipated, not only because of the new Oliver Queen appearing but as also of the blossoming romance between Oliver and Felicity, or how fans would call them, "Olicity." However, along with Oliver turning over a new leaf would be the arrival of new characters.
Entertainment Monthly reports that one of the characters whose arrival will catch attention would be Curtis Holt or Mr. Terrific. He is described as a technological savant and inventor who will be working under Felicity at Palmer Technologies. The actor to play Mr. Terrific would be Echo Kellum, who is best known as Tommy in the American sitcom "Ben and Kate." It is hoped that his arrival would fill the void Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) had left, as many were terribly saddened by his decision to go.
Another notable character that will be introduced would be Damien Darhk. Fans of the series would remember his name being mentioned in the last season as Ra's al Ghul's former bestfriend-turned-rival. He is said to be one of the big bads in this season. Darhk is a major player in America's underworld. He is said to be the leader of H.I.V.E., an evil organization that specializes in training assassins and mercenaries, as well as a former member of the League of Assassins. Neal McDonough would be playing the character Darhk, and many are excited about the actor's portrayal. McDonough has been seen in various films and movies. His most notable performance would be in television shows such as "Band of Brothers," "Desperate Housewives," and movies like "Red 2," "Captain America: The First Avenger," and "Walking Tall." more >>
The return of "Dancing with the Stars" (DWTS) season 21 may be more exciting for the 90s kids as a member of one of the biggest boybands of that time is joining the cast. The new recruit is none other than Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys, who, funny enough, was convinced by former boyband rival member, Joey Fatone.
Nick Carter shares to US Magazine that he's "excited" for the chance. After apparently being asked for the fifth time, Carter finally said yes due to the encouragement of Fatone. Carter says, "He talks about it all the time and I was really debating if I wanted to do it, and he said, 'It's a great experience, it keeps you in shape and it'll teach you a lot of stuff.' He said, 'You'll get what you put into it.' And I'm a hard worker, so I think it'll be fun."
It is quite known that NSYNC, which Fatone was a member of, was Backstreet Boys' biggest rival in the pop genre in the late 90s to early 2000s. Although the rivalry was mainly heightened by the media, the members have become pals behind the scenes. Fatone joined DWTS in seasons 4 and 15, and had been quite impressive. more >>
To say that "The Bold and the Beautiful" has been shocking would be quite an understatement. The show has had quite a lot of big revelations, leaving fans taken aback by the way things can quickly turn around in the soap opera.
In the recent spoilers, it seems the drama will shift to Ridge and Caroline's relationship. It has become quite obvious that Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) has been hiding something big from Caroline. Viewers of the show are aware that Ridge has spent time away in Paris, and from the teasers, he seems very hesitant to tell Caroline everything he's been up to while he was there. He does open up, however, to Brooke about some of it.
According to We Love Soaps, it is speculated that Ridge's secret might have something to do with Caroline's recent open desires of starting a family. It's said that there is a possibility that Ridge underwent a vasectomy while he was overseas. This makes it difficult for him to tell Caroline and crush her dreams of having a baby, as well as her heart, now that he had taken preventive measures of producing any offspring even before they have decided. Since Caroline's plans of wanting a child is very recent, Ridge might have assumed that there was no need for him to tell her beforehand. For now, this is just the most likely prediction; however, knowing the show, fans should be prepared for the unexpected. more >>
