Lyric McHenry Dies, Friends and Loved Ones React in Shock

The world of reality television was dealt a tragic and awful blow on Tuesday night.

Former EJNYC star Lyric McHenry was found dead in New York City, with details of her passing causing those who knew her well to react in stunned silence and/or shocked sorrow.

According to various outlets, McHenry was discovered at 5 a.m. on a sidewalk in the Bronx.

She was wearing nothing but a pajamas top and there was a small bag of cocaine on her person.

Authorities therefore suspect that McHenry died of a drug overdose.

Along with the actual narcotics found at the scene, this belief was fortified by the many Instagram photos and videos shared by McHenry and her friends late Monday night, all of which documented their night out in New York.

Here are two examples of such photos:

McHenry, her sister Maya (who also is friends with EJ Johnson and who also appeared on the aforementioned E! reality series in 2016) and some pals hit up multiple well-known Big Apple hot spots during their celebration.

Lyric was only 26 years old at the time of her death.

And, according to The New York Daily News, she was 20 weeks pregnant.

Just horrible.

Those who knew McHenry well are not taking the news of her passing well, for obvious and understandable reasons.

Dorothy Wang, who starred alongside EJ Johnson and who was close friends with McHenry, Tweeted the following after learning of Lyric’s death:

Rest In Peace Lyric McHenry. You were an angel amongst us.

Wang was a cast member on E!’s Rich Kids of Beverly Hills for four seasons and EJNYC was a one-season spinoff of this program.

Wang also called out reports about McHenry’s death that did NOT include all of her accomplishments, insiders or social media users who only focused on the overdose.

“Lyric was a Stanford graduate, scholar, activist, an intelligent, caring, friend, sister, daughter, and member of society!!!” wrote Wang.

It’s true: she also volunteered on the Obama campaign when she was 15 years old.

“Working for this campaign made my awkward stage at 15 so much doper,” wrote McHenry as a caption to the picture below, adding:

Thank you to the Obamas for inspiring us, leading with love and intellect, bringing art and artists to the White House, and also Sasha and Malia.”

Radar Online, meanwhile, writes that McHenry’s mom reacted in such hysterics upon hearing that her daughter died that she had to be hospitalized.

The 26-year-old’s mother, Jennifer, was “crying and fell to the ground and we had to catch her,” a source said about the sad situation.

This is what the New York Police Department wrote in regard to what transpired yesterday:

“On Tuesday, August 14, 2018 at approximately 0505 hours, police encountered a 26-year-old female, unconscious and unresponsive, lying on the sidewalk in the vicinity of Undercliff Avenue and Boscobel Place, within the confines of the 44 Precinct.

“There were no obvious signs of trauma observed.

“EMS responded to the location and transported the aided female to Bronx Lebanon Hospital, where she was pronounced deceased. The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death.

“The investigation remains ongoing.”

And this is what EJ Johnson, the son of basketball legend Magic Johnson, wrote on social media on August 6 and McHenry and her impending birthday:

Happy birthday to my best friend who has strutted with my in princess gowns since day 1 @lyric_leighwords cannot express how much I love and appreciate you in my life.

Your constant love, respect and companionship gives me the confidence to live my truth every single day and I am so blessed that even as baby divas we recognized the greatness in each other.

I love you #leoseason #teamthis.

May Lyric McHenry rest in peace.

Loser Designer Blasts Selena Gomez as “Ugly,” Fans React in Horror

You can say many things about Selena Gomez.

You can say you don’t like her music because you’re entitled to that opinion.

You can say you she has bad taste in men because Justin Bieber has never treated her well.

You can say she makes poor decisions with her hairstyle at times.

But you cannot say what Stefano Gabbana just said about the singer, not if you want to avoid very deserved backlash from millions of people on social media.

The Italian designer, who co-founded the fashion label label Dolce & Gabbana, went out of his way on Instagram this week to attack Gomez.

In the comments of a photo on The Catwalk Italia’s Instagram account, Gabbana wrote the following alongside a collage of Selena picture:

È proprio brutta!!!

This translates, very simply and extremely rudely, to: She’s so ugly.

The insult was many things; unprovoked, cruel, sexist and objectively untrue.

And while Gomez has thus far taken the high road, refusing to even acknowledge Gabbana’s existence, her friends and fans online have been unable to show similar restraint.

“@stefanobabbana you’re tired and over. your homophobic, misogynistic, body-shaming existence will not thrive in 2018,” Tweeted 13 Reasons Why actor Tommy Dorfman, who plays Ryan Shaver in the Netflix drama.

He added:

“it is no longer tolerable or chic. please take many seats.”

And then there was this from a Gomez follower:

“Shame on you for online bullying. Doesn’t matter if 1 million people see it or 1 person, it’s bullying. It’s wrong.”

And then this from another Gomez follower, who kept it short and simple and supportive:

“We love this beautiful queen.”

Julia Michaels, a singer-songwriter and close friend of Selena’s tweeted:

“@selenagomez just here to tell you that you are one of the most beautiful women I know, inside and out. I love you always.”

This really is true.

While the merits of what Gabbana said are really beside the point, it might as well be pointed out while we’re here:

Selena Gomez is a very pretty young woman. Full stop. This statement really can’t be debated.

the mean comment

Over the years, Gabbana has bullied stars on social media numerous times, including Kate Mossand Victoria Beckham.

Most recently, he went after Kate Moss on the same Catwalk Italia Instagram page, dissing a Saint Laurent look she was wearing … just because.

In 2015, celebrities such as Elton John, Courtney Love and Ricky Martin boycotted the fashion brand over insensitive comments Dolce and Gabbana made about IVF and LGBTQ families.

Moreover, the brand released a $ 245 “#BoycottDolceGabbana” graphic T-shirt inspired by the negative response to First Lady Melania Trump wearing their designs.

In other words: it courts controversy like this.

So the best thing to do is what Selena has done, which is to totally and completely ignore the misguided and pathetic messenger.

This will be the last time we write about him.

It's cancelation season — the worst time of the year.

FOX, infamous for having canceled beloved shows in the past, is giving the axe to beloved comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Season 5 will be its last.

TV cancelations tend to have much more to do with ratings and budgets than they do with anything else, which means that high-quality shows can get the axe. This, folks, is why we as a society cannot have nice things.

A massive outpouring of support from fans and viewers of Brooklyn Nine-Nine has dominated the Twitter conversation since the announcement on Thursday.

Members of the cast thanked fans for their years of support.

A number of celebrities spoke out, mourning the show and extolling its many virtues.

In fact, as you'll see, the outpouring was so intense that their may be good news on the horizon. …

1. First the bad news broke

2. The show’s creator spoke out

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a highly beloved comedy series, and as sad as fans are to see it go, you know that the creators, writers, actors, and crew have to be even more heartbroken.

4. Joe Lo Truglio mourns with fans

One of the lead actors, he plays Charles Boyle, who was something of a weak link during the first season but who grew to be beloved by fans over the following four seasons.

5. Melissa Fumero plays the leading lady

Playing opposite Andy Samberg’s character, she portrays Amy Santiago, a rules-oriented detective who is absolutely endearing in every episode.

If you're a Teen Mom 2 fan, then by now, you've likely heard about the infamous Jenelle Evans road rage incident.

In case you somehow missed it, here's a brief rundown:

Basically, Jenelle is even more nuts than we thought, and she chased a guy down and threatened to shoot him on his own lawn all because he cut her off in traffic.

Oh, did we mention her son was in the passenger seat the whole time?

Like we said, it was bad. Very bad.

And naturally, Jenelle's esteemed colleagues over at MTV have had a lot to say on the subject:

1. A New Low

Family, friends, and fans are used to erratic and even violent behavior from Jenelle. But endangering multiple lives – including that of her 8-year-old son, Jace – is a new low for Evans, and her latest controversy is sure to carry some serious consequences.

3. The Fallout Continues

It also looks as though Jenelle might lose custody of her youngest son, Kaiser, as a result of her latest brush with the law. She’s already lost custody of Jace, who is currently being raised by Jenelle’s mother, Barbara Evans.

4. Uncharacteristically Quiet

5. Calling For Her Head

Not surprisingly, many are calling for Jenelle to be fired as a result of the incident, including her longtime co-star Jeremy Calvert.

6. Jeremy Sounds Off

Calvert – the former husband of Leah Messer – is an outspoken opponent of gun control legislation, but even he feels that left-leaning TM2 producers should put their money where their mouth is and can Jenelle for brandishing a weapon.
