Kim Kardashian meets Donald Trump: PHOTO

Kim Kardashian has had a meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House, y'all.

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star is in Washington, D.C. and met with President Donald Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner to discuss prison reform.

She will also sit down with the president and is planning to ask him to pardon a woman serving a life sentence without parole for a first-time drug offence.

Kim was photographed arriving to the White House on Wednesday afternoon wearing a black pantsuit and lime green heels. After the meeting, Trump tweeted, "Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing."
Here is that tweet:
Earlier this month, Kim was in talks with Jared to pardon a 62-year-old great-grandmother named Alice Marie Johnson.

Alice is currently serving a life sentence for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense. It's been over 20 years since she began her sentence in federal prison in October 1996.

'Roseanne' cancelled: what happened

The Channel 10 hit show 'Roseanne' has been axed.

Roseanne Barr posted an offensive tweet aimed at former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett and ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey has announced that the show will not be returning for an 11th season.

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show," the brief statement said. Robert Iger, chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company, ABC's parent company, shared Dungey's statement on Twitter, adding, "There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing."
In a now-deleted tweet, Barr wrote on Tuesday, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj." And when many Twitter users pointed out the tweet's racist nature, Barr upped the ante with another tweet (which has also since been deleted): "Muslims r NOT a race."
She later tweeted an apology, saying "I am now leaving Twitter." But it appears it was too little, too late.

Following Barr's outburst, co-star Sara Gilbert took to Twitter writing, "Roseanne's recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show. I am disappointed in her actions to say the least."

She followed that up with another tweet arguing that the show, which is named after Barr, is bigger than any one cast member. "This is incredibly sad and difficult for all of us, as we've created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love— one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member," Sara wrote.

Actress Wanda Sykes, who served as a consulting producer during season 10, tweeted that she was walking away from the series ahead of its now-canceled next season. "I will not be returning to ," she tweeted

Whitney Cummings, who served as co-showrunner and executive producer during season 10 and whose departure was announced ahead of this latest batch of offensive tweets from Barr, retweeted Gilbert's second tweet with the comment, "I love you Sara."

Emma Rose Kenney, who joined the series for the revival as Darlene's daughter Harris, sent out a series of tweets in response Barr's behavior and then ABC's unprecedented decision. "I am hurt, embarrassed, and disappointed. The racist and distasteful comments from Roseanne are inexcusable," the Shameless star wrote. She followed that up with a now-deleted tweet that read, "As I called my manager to quit working on Roseanne, I found out the show got cancelled. I feel so empowered by @iamwandasykes , Channing Dungey  and those at ABC standing up against abuse of power and lack of values. Bullies do not win. Ever."

Michael Fishman, who returned for the revival to reprise his role of Roseanne and Dan's son D.J., took to Twitter and shared a lengthy statement, calling today "one of the hardest in my life." "I feel devastated, not for the end of the Roseanne show, but for all those who poured their hearts and souls into our jobs, and the audience that welcomed us into their homes," he wrote, adding of Barr's tweets, "I condemn these statements vehemently. They are reprehensible and intolerable, contradicting my beliefs and outlook on life and society."

Roseanne herself is yet to respond to Roseanne's cancellation.

What IS 'Love Island' all about?

Josie's Juice has broken it all down here for you, and included all their profiles and Instagram accounts and the rest to get you started...

Here is a just released vid of their arrival:

And the show's premise:

Love Island starts off with 10 "really good looking" ('Zoolander' reference, obv) girls and guys all looking for the ‘one’. But along the way the games' rules will change – with new singles entering the villa and forcing others out.
To stay on Love Island, you must be in a couple.
Upon entering the Villa, guys and girls must 'couple up'. Regular 'recoupling' sessions give the Love Islander peeps an opp to change who they're coupled up with.
If you're left single at the end of the recoupling you're booted out of the Villa.
Sexy and strange challenges are thrown at the Islanders, with a prize of course.
Finally, a public vote remains and this is where the couple most loved by the Australian TV viewers will be awarded with prize money. The twist? The winning couple must then make a choice: love or money. 
And the cast:

Need convincing to watch the show? Read this opinion piece.

'Love Island' Australia started May 27, on 9Go and 9Now., at 8.30pm, and continues 5 nights a week.

Yanny vs Laurel: How it all began EXPLAINED

The "Yanny" versus "Laurel" debate has 'gripped' the world!

"What do you hear" has surely been the most uttered question in the past 24 hours.

IT'S THE BLUE DRESS VERSUS GOLD DRESS of our time and it's driving us all bananas.

Here is the whole thing explained, and below, where the whole crazy thing originated from:

That audio clip has been here all along at Vocabulary.com.
Go to the page for "Laurel" (yep, that's OFFICIALLY the word in the clip) and click the audio icon. You'll hear that oft repeated word.
The audio clip was picked up by Reddit on May 12 — specifically, on a post by RolandCamry at the subreddit r/blackmagicf**kery.
Apparently, RolandCamry is an 18-year-old high school student from Georgia in the US.
So why do half of us hear one thing and half of us another?
Basically, if you hear "Yanny", you're hearing acoustic information from a higher frequency.
If you hear "Laurel", you're hearing acoustic information from a lower frequency.
A further explanation is that as we get older, we tend to start losing our hearing at higher frequency ranges.
So while the audio clip was made for the word laurel, it would appear the Yanny folks might just have the better hearing...
Even celebs weighed in:

The first guests start to arrive at St George's Chapel, in Windsor Castle.
These will be the 1200 members of the public that have been invited to watch the celebrations outside the church. All these people have overcome adversity or contributed to the community in some way.

From 6.30pm - 8pm AEST (9.30am - 11am local time):
The main wedding guests will begin arriving.
Amal and George Clooney? Who else? We won't know until the day.
All three siblings of Diana, Princess of Wales, will be there, with sister Lady Jane Fellowes chosen to give the reading.
Meghan's mother Doria Ragland is said to be walking her from the car to the church, and who knows who will walk her down the aisle now that Meghan's dad Thomas (Tom) Markle is out.

8.20pm AEST (11.20am local time):

The rest of the extended Royal family will begin to arrive, according to CNN.
Some will walk to the chapel, some will be come by car.

8.45pm AEST (11.45am local time):

The Telegraph (UK) is reporting that the pair will arrive on foot, and Prince Harry will walk past the crowds in the grounds before the ceremony.

8.55pm AEST (11.55am local time):

Queen Elizabeth will arrive, according to the Telegraph.
She will be the last member of the Royal family to take her seat for the wedding ceremony.

8.59pm AEST (11.59am local time):

Meghan is due to arrive on the west steps of the chapel.

9pm AEST (midday local time)

The ceremony starts and will last one hour.
Who is conducting the service?
The Reverend Michael Curry from Chicago, Illinois will give the address at the wedding.
The Dean of Windsor David Conner will conduct the service, and the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will officiate as the couple exchange marriage vows.

10pm AEST (1pm local time):

The couple will leave the chapel once the ceremony is over - then speak to 200 representatives from charities Prince Harry is associated with. Now that's commitment!
Then they will board an Ascot Landau carriage pulled by Windsor Grey horses for their procession through the town, which takes 25 minutes.
They'll be returning to Windsor Castle via the Long Walk.

From 11pm AEST (2pm local time)

The first of two receptions of the day.
The first reception will be held in St George's Hall inside the castle.
All of the 600 guests invited to the wedding will be seated at this event.

From 4am, Sunday AEST (7pm local time)

This is the second reception of the day to be held at Frogmore House.
Only 200 guests have an invitation to this more event, a more intimate gathering.
There has been no announcement about when the couple may share their first married kiss in public, and there is no balcony schedule for this.
We predict it'll be in there somewhere! The eager GLOBAL public want to see it!
Oh yeah, and the DRESS!
MEGHAN stunning dress is said to have been revealed this week. Well, some details about it.
The $180,000 (YES!) wedding dress has been revealed, it has been reported.
The 'Daily Mail' reports the Royal bride will walk down the aisle in a hand-stitched gown by London-based Australian fashion designers Ralph & Russo.
Meghan will reportedly wear the gown during the service and at a reception in St George’s Hall, Windsor Castle, afterwards.
