Jeremy Lin's career took off to a whole new level when he played for the New York Knicks, and so it is quite disheartening when he gets jeered at Madison Square Garden, the place where "Linsanity" started.
After leading a winning streak for the New York Knicks in 2012, playing two seasons with the Rockets, and being acquired by the LA Lakers in a trade, Lin has currently found a new home with the Charlotte Hornets. Lin spent most of last season with the Knicks, and not to forget the controversial move by NY Knicks to let go of Lin, many have been wondering how fans will react when Lin steps out into Madison Square Garden once more — this time in a visiting uniform. And as many predicted, last Tuesday, Nov. 17, wearing a No. 7 Charlotte Hornets uniform, Lin was jeered at from the same place that once cheered him on.
According to News Day, Lin was asked about what happened during the game, and he said, "I guess it shows it's just on to the next thing, which it should be for them." He then further added that he was somehow expecting this to happen, as he shares, "I'd be surprised if I came back and kept getting cheered. Knicks fans should root for the Knicks players." more >>
The latest episode of "Love & Hip Hop Hollywood" had too much drama, specifically between Moniece Slaughter and Princess Love. With the way things ended, it doesn't seem like the rift between the two would be ending soon.
According to Enstarz, in the last episode, the real drama started when Teairra Mari makes a revenge by trying to ruin Hazel-E's fashion show after she finds out that Hazel chose Princess Love, Teairra's enemy, to be the designer of the show that Teairra herself and Nikki Muddarris have been planning. When everyone thought the bashing between Teairra and Princess was going to be the highlight of the show, things took a turn when Moniece Slaughter came into the picture.
Moniece is definitely behind Teairra, and Princess did not appreciate her entering the scene at all, as she replied with "Does Teairra have to bring her pat rat wherever she goes?" more >>
In the next episode of "Homeland" season 5, Carrie Mathison's (Claire Danes) life will be in danger as she tries to gather more information about the old files she found.
"Homeland" season 5's upcoming episode, titled "All About Allison," will feature Mathison on the run. She will beg Allison to help her shed light on the old field reports, but the latter will not give her a helpful reply. Little does she know that a sniper will be hiding in the background and targeting her, according to Vine Report.
In the previous episode titled "Oriole," Mathison read old field reports and found out that Otto During (Sebastian Koch) is the reason why the Russian wanted to kill her. Oriole could have been her code name when she was still in the Middle East. She also found out that Ahmed Nazari is not really dead, and she was able to track his possible hideout in Amsterdam, the report details. more >>

The horror anthology series on FX, "American Horror Story: Hotel," is enjoying great success. The show was recently renewed for another season – much to the delight of its creator Ryan Murphy. The news also comes with the possibility that singer Lady Gaga is being considered to return in the anthology's next run. Lady Gaga's portrayal of the fashionista owner of Hotel Cortez, the Countess, has been well-received, thus the move to keep her in the show. In the meantime, the show is on its seventh episode titled "Flicker" which is set to air on November 18. According to a report in CarterMatt, the connection between the Countess and the hotel's original owner, James March (Evan Peters) will be revealed in the coming episode.
This connection will shed some light on the Countess and her backstory. In the preview video, she was shown talking to an unknown man who may be responsible for her contracting the ancient blood virus. He is heard inviting her to join them, to which she replies, "Yes, forever." While this scene did not reveal the man's identity, another scene showed her with hotel owner James. The scene showed her walking into a room where James was doing some unspeakable act with a guest. She then tells James, "Next time I want to watch," much to the delight of the man. This fuels speculation that the two may have been more than just acquaintances.
The episode's official synopsis also reveals that Will Drake (Cheyenne Jackson), who is doing some renovation work at the hotel, discovers "one of the Hotel's greatest secrets," which in the preview is shown as a mysterious and hidden hallway that has not been used for years. The hallway, however, houses an equally mysterious killer who ends up killing one of Drake's men. more >>
