Jessica Lange Confirms ‘American Horror Story’ Departure



Sorry folks, Jessica Lange will not be returning for next season of American Horror Story.

HipHollywood attended the 2015 Paleyfest American Horror Story: Freak Show panel on Sunday night where Lange confirmed that she will be moving on after four long, yet exciting seasons. “To cut to the chase, no,” she said when asked if she will be back.

The actress added, “We’ve had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I’ve had the opportunity to play.”

But as fans say goodbye to the show’s star, they will be saying hello to a few new hotties. During the panel, the crew announced that Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson will join the cast, alongside newcomer, Lady Gaga.

While on the red carpet, AHS actor, Michael Chiklis shared with HipHollywood that he is excited to see Gaga’s acting chops. “She’s an incredible talent. She is a crazy, great musician,” Michael, who played Dell Toledo on Freak Show explained. “I’m looking forward to seeing what she does.”

The cast and crew gathered during the closing night presentation to celebrate an amazing series, but a night on this level would not have gone on without the mention of their late friend and co-star, Ben Woolf. The 34-year-old died on February 23 after being struck on the head with a car mirror from an SUV.

“He was just such a sweetheart,” Finn Wittrock said. “Why is it always the best ones who go.”

AHS: Hotel will kick off production in late summer and premiere on FX in October.


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
