The secret’s out; Rachel Lindsay let it slip that SHE’S ENGAGED! She told Entertainment Tonight, “I’m very much in love and very much engaged.” The new season hasn’t even begun and we already know everything is coming up roses.

After 12 successful seasons, fans and critics alike couldn’t help but notice there would be people of color as token contestants and never as the main Bachelor or Bachelorette. Audiences were ecstatic when 32-year-old Lindsay, a lawyer, was announced as the first Black Bachelorette for Season 13.

Lindsay addressed race and dating head-on during interviews promoting the premiere saying she doesn’t have a type.

“With the guys, you know, if it’s something new to them, then I want to talk about it the same way that I [wanted] to talk to Nick about it: ‘Have you ever dated a black woman before?'” she told ET in April. “I’ll talk about my experiences as well. You know, it’s about me, too, but I don’t want it to be something that defines our relationship. But I think it’s something important to address.”

Fans have been vocal about race as well, touting Lindsay as a trailblazer and a role model.  Its also worth mentioning that her potential suitors are also a ethnically diverse group compared to past seasons.

 

We will meet this gang this Monday!!! Who is excited?! #bachelorette #rachellindsay #bachelornation #abcnetwork #bachelorette #bachelor

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
