Taking to her official Instagram page today, August 26, the actress shared photos of her daughter posing in a pink dress and a tiara with balloons of different colours surrounding her.
She expressed her uncommon love for baby Reign and revealed it was her pleasure watching her grow.
In her words… “Watching you grow up has been been many things, Joyful, impactful, full of laughter and sometimes even stressful, but above all, it’s been the most meaningful part of my life. Happy first birthday @reignezerika I love you beyond words.”
Recalling Reign’s birth, she wrote, “Few hours to my baby’s birthday! Oh, how time flies, the only other thing cuter than loving yourself is loving someone else, unconditionally… this was me few hours before I met my blessing. At this point, anything the nurse was telling me was just annoying me.?”
We can always rely on Ryan Reynolds to provide us with a good laugh, whether it’s in the way he mocks his wife Blake Lively, his never-ending trolling of Hugh Jackman, or in character as the ever-satirical Deadpool.
Reynolds’ humour is always welcome, probably more so than ever with the year we’re having, and luckily for us he’s ready to bring us a fresh bout of joy in a new collaboration with Netflix.
The actor is set to create a new original feature comedy called Upstate, which he will co-write with John August, the man behind Big Fish and Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin.
The film is expected to be a star vehicle for Reynolds, a Hollywood term that we’re only slightly comfortable using in this sentence because it’s being used in relation to our favourite Canadian star.
Thanks to the title we can assume it takes place somewhere upstate, but which state, and what happens there, are questions that can only be answered with time.
As well as penning the script together, Reynolds and August will be executive producers, the former through his production company Maximum Effort, Deadline reports.
I’m ridiculously excited about this. Many #writesprints ahead. https://t.co/cTi4XYFHJQ

The project will reunite the pair more than a decade since they last worked together on 2007’s The Nines, which was directed by August and starred Reynolds as three different characters; Gary, Gavin Taylor and Gabriel. After Upstate was announced, August took to Twitter to say he was ‘ridiculously excited’ about the movie.
The creation of Upstate will also reunite Reynolds with Netflix following the collaboration on last year’s action-thriller 6 Underground.

Actor Frank Whaley has accused Hollywood legend Jon Voight of slapping him while they worked on the crime drama “Ray Donovan” together. The allegations come after the 81-year-old Oscar winner and father of actress Angelina Jolie lent his voice to the Republican National Convention on Monday.
“F - - k Jon Voight,” Whaley, 57, tweeted Monday in a heated Twitter tirade that garnered more than 69,000 likes as of Tuesday morning. “On ‘Ray Donovan’ he slapped me across the face in the middle of a scene because he couldn’t keep up, then denied doing it.”
The “Swimming with Sharks” star added that Voight “forgot about the still photographer who was on set” and even included a pic of the “Anaconda” actor allegedly smacking Whaley across the face on set of the hit Showtime series.
On the now-canceled show, Voight portrays the menacing family patriarch Mickey Donovan, who — spoiler alert — memorably murders Whaley’s nosey FBI agent Van Miller during Season 1.
“Bottom line: Jon Voight is a major dick,” wrote Whaley. He added the hashtag “#RNCConvention2020,” referencing the staunch Trump supporter’s intro to the Republican National Convention. During Voight’s laudatory narration, the “Midnight Cowboy” actor described the president as “a man who cares, a man who loves America and all Americans.”
Needless to say, Whaley’s allegations drew mixed reactions on Twitter.
“Somebody slapped someone during the filming of a scene?” snarked conservative pundit Mindy Robinson. “Get out of here, no one’s ever seen that on TV ever.”
“Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” star Dean Cain even suggested that Whaley was asking for it. “He slapped you — that’s quite clear,” he wrote. “The reason he slapped you remains a mystery . . . although I have an idea.”
However, others rallied to Whaley’s defense. “You should’ve absolutely stomped that old man’s genitals into dust for that, sir,” tweeted “The Outlaw Nation” host John Rocha. “No one has the right to do that to ya over a scene in a TV show of all things. We need to call out all these fools parading around on sets abusing actors, production staff and others.”
Reps for Voight did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.
Jamie Lynn Spears is set to play a more significant role in her sister Britney Spears’ conservatorship, new court records show.
The 29-year-old former Nickelodeon star has been named the trustee of Britney’s “SJB Revocable Trust,” which was initially set to protect the pop star and her children’s finances, according to The Blast, which obtained the documents.
Jamie Lynn has reportedly requested that the court authorize Fidelity Financial Management to serve as a financial advisor and create “blocked accounts” to hold her 38-year-old sister’s assets.
According to The Blast, the “Zoey 101” star will ensure these assets and cash will be used for Britney’s two children, Sean and Jayden Federline, if the singer was to pass away.
The document states, “Upon the settlor’s death, the entire principal of the Trust … shall be promptly distributed by the Trustee to the trustee or co-trustees of the BJS Kids & Family Trust, to be held, administered and distributed in accordance with its terms.”
The “SJB Revocable Trust” was reportedly created in 2004, four years prior to when her conservatorship started in 2008.
Britney’s trust pertains to her bank accounts and personal items such as clothes, jewelry, artwork and furniture, according to reports. Its not clear if it also includes the value of any intellectual property, such as music rights, owned by the pop star.
Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, and her co-conservator, Andrew Wallet, signed off on Jamie Lynn’s request to be named a trustee.
In July, Jamie Lynn slammed a fan who questioned her sister’s mental health.
She wrote on Instagram, “You have no right to assume anything about my sister, and I have NO right to speak about HER health and personal matters. She is a strong, badass, unstoppable woman, and that’s the only thing that is OBVIOUS.”
Last week, a judge ruled that Britney’s conservatorship will be extended for at least another six months following the singer’s request to remove her father. Her manager Jodi Montgomery is currently her temporary conservator.

TruTV has opted not to go ahead with the previously greenlighted season of scripted comedy I’m Sorry, created by and starring Andrea Savage. The well-received series had been renewed for a 10-episode third season to air in 2020.

“Due to circumstances created by COVID, we unfortunately cannot move forward with production on the third season of I’m Sorry,” the network said in a statement to Deadline. “We admire Andrea Savage’s irreverent voice and fresh take on parenthood and are so proud of the show she and her cast and crew created. She was a great partner for many years and we truly wish everyone well.”
I hear I’m Sorry was two weeks into filming Season 3 when all Hollywood production was shut down in mid-March. All 10 scripts for the new season have been written, and Savage and the show’s other producers were contemplating scenarios for resuming production when the call came from the network that I’m Sorry has been canceled. I hear it caught everyone off-guard.
“We are heartbroken. This has been my second baby for almost 5 years,” said Savage, a mother of one. “While I wish people would be able to see the wonderful 10 episodes we wrote this season, I am so proud of the show we created. It is exactly the show I wanted to make and am devastated it’s not continuing. I also want to thank all of our fans for supporting us so incredibly over these past few years. We couldn’t have done it without you!”
The cancellation of I’m Sorry follows a similar decision by Netflix not to proceed with previously greenlighted and fully written seasons of two YA series, The Society and I Am Not OK With This “due to circumstances created by COVID.” Those reversals also reportedly blindsided the creators like the I’m Sorry one did.
As we wrote at the time, this is something we will likely see more of as the months-long Hollywood shutdown due to the pandemic will create a logjam when trying to ease all series impacted by the shutdown back into production while navigating actors’ schedules and mitigating higher production costs due to strict COVID-19 safety protocols as well as significant financial hits from the pandemic.
The decision on I’m Sorry is likely a combination of the impact from COVID and the major changes and belt-tightening at TruTV parent WarnerMedia, which has been going through major restructuring and cost-cutting.
I’m Sorry, from Gloria Sanchez, A24 and Lonely Island, was part of TruTV’s rebrand as a comedy network with a distinct point of view. The WarnerMedia ad-supported cable networks have all been pairing down their scripted series portfolios over the past year or so amid declining lieanr TV ratings. TruTV still has At Home With Amy Sedaris and just renewed breakout Tacoma FD for a third season.
I’m Sorry, which grew its audience in Season 2 vs. Season 1 per TruTV, has been lauded for its nuanced TV mom portrayal. It follows Andrea (played by Savage), a confident comedy writer, wife and mom who comically exposes her inner immaturity and neuroses through unexpected life situations. She is joined by her husband Mike (Tom Everett Scott), their inquisitive daughter Amelia (Olive Petrucci) and her divorced parents (Kathy Baker and Martin Mull), as well as a close circle of friends.
I’m Sorry is executive produced by Savage, Joey Slamon, A24’s Ravi Nandan, Gloria Sanchez’s Jessica Elbaum, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, and Lonely Island’s Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer.
Roughly 17 million people watched the first night of the Republican National Convention on television during the primary speech hours between 10 p.m.-11 p.m. EST Monday night, according to Nielsen ratings.
Why it matters: That’s down more than 26% from the number of TV viewers for the first night of the 2016 RNC. It’s also 13% lower than the number of TV viewers who watched the first night of the Democratic National Convention last week.
The ratings drop at both the DNC and RNC is likely attributable to the fact that both conventions were mostly pre-taped, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and fewer people watch live television now.
About 15% fewer Americans subscribe to pay-TV now than in 2016.
More Americans rely on digital streaming platforms and social media to get their news and entertainment today than ever before.
By the numbers: Fox News beat all other cable and broadcast networks when it came to total viewership Monday night, with over 7 million viewers.
That’s more than the 5.1 million total audience members than MSNBC saw on the first night of the DNC.
Fox News led all three cable networks in viewership among adults ages 25–54 — a lucrative advertising demographic — followed by CNN and then MSNBC.
CNN brought in the second-highest number of total viewers with roughly 2 million, followed by ABC, MSNBC, NBC and CBS.
Be smart: These figures don’t take into account the millions of people who likely watched the convention online and via streaming television.
What’s next: Fox News, a conservative-leaning cable news network, is expected to lead in total views for all four nights of the RNC, just as MSNBC, a liberal-leaning cable news network, took the top spot for total views for the entirety of the DNC.
If you’ve yet to watch Yellowstone’s finale, you might want to put off reading this countdown for a spell, as it most definitely contains spoilers for Sunday’s climactic finale. Otherwise, go ahead and dive in, because we’re going to relive Season 3’s highlights — or, well, lowlights if your name happens to be Wade Morrow.
Included in our list are the moment that Beth dropped her guard and copped to the role that she hoped to play in Rip’s future; Jamie’s accidental discovery that, while he might always be the black sheep of the Dutton family, that wasn’t his original family; and the scene in which Jimmy learned that being hospitalized with a broken back (for starters!) might just be the best thing that ever happened to him.
Along the way, we also cover the confrontation that resulted from John learning how far back Jamie’s history of rat-bastardy-ness went, the ultra-successful chemistry test that served as Josh Holloway’s introduction to the Paramount Network series, and a kiss that was surprisingly sweet when you remember how much sexual harassment had preceded it. (Yeah, lookin’ at you, Teeter!)
