Teaser Watch: Carrie May Have Been Turned in the Final Season of “Homeland”

Published

on


A teaser for “Homeland’s” eighth and final season is here and asks the previously unthinkable question: Has Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) been turned? She’s been subjected to seven months of interrogation and confinement in a Russian gulag, yet doesn’t remember anything about it.

Despite the gaps in her memory, Carrie, CIA loyalist that she is, is sure she never “conspired with a foreign intelligence officer or service” or revealed any asset’s identity. However, her former mentor, Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin), has his doubts. “Everyone breaks under Russian interrogation,” he says matter-of-factly.

Alongside the mystery of what actually happened to Carrie in Russia, Season 8 of “Homeland” focuses on her latest collaboration with Saul, who is now National Security Advisor to the new president, Ralph Warner (Beau Bridges). “The top priority of Warner’s young administration is an end to the ‘forever war’ in Afghanistan, and Saul has been dispatched to engage the Taliban in peace negotiations,” Deadline details. “But Kabul teems with warlords and mercenaries, zealots and spies – and Saul needs the relationships and expertise that only his protégé can provide. Against medical advice, Saul asks Carrie to walk with him into the lion’s den – one last time.”

Danes won two Emmys for her work in “Homeland,” and has scored another three nominations. The show’s first season picked up the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series.

“Homeland” returns February 9 on Showtime.

Which Royals Are Allowed to Make Money? It’s a Little Complicated

Published

on


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex could be pivoting yet again. On Tuesday the Daily Mail reported that the Queen of England has “banned” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from using the term “Sussex Royal” in their public and private business work moving forward, even after the couple sought to trademark the phrase and indicated it would be their personal branding for their work now that they have stepped down as senior royals.

Is this a slap in the face, as some royal commentators would like to have it, or a hair-splitter that’ll require the 30-second step of editing their Instagram handle? For now it’s hard to say—as is anything specific about what commercial work the Sussexes will do, and how they will brand that work and themselves. But it’s not the only head-scratcher that’s had royal watchers wondering in recent weeks who gets to make money in this family. The queen’s eldest grandson Peter Phillips made sure of that, in the brutally awkward Chinese milk ad that surfaced a few days after Harry and Meghan first announced their intentions to leave the firm in January.

In the ad, a butler carries a bottle of milk on a silver tray to Phillips, the presumed man of the house. “This is what I drink,” he says stiffly, holding the glass to the camera. It’s the only English spoken in the commercial beyond his own name. Two days later, the British press dug up an entirely different Chinese milk ad starring Kitty Spencer, Princess Diana’s niece.

“MILKING IT,” the Sun observed in its headline. “The financial escapades of the minor royals would make a heritage tomato blush,” Jan Moir wrote in the Daily Mail, calling the money grubbing “a wholly unedifying sight, a horrible little stain on the fabric of the nation.”

Phillips, Spencer, and the Sussexes are hardly the first royals or royal-adjacent people to peddle in their positions. Who can forget Sarah Ferguson’s campaign for Weight Watchers, spinning the miserable tabloid discussions of her weight gain into financial gain? (“Fergie seems unstable to begin with. It is asking a lot to count on her to keep her weight down,” a marketing consultant told the Los Angeles Times at launch in 1997.) But the dueling milk ads and the possible death of the Sussex Royal dream raise a question: just who in the royal family is allowed to cash in?

While “rules” around royal life may seem especially cloak and dagger these days, the boundary around who can and can’t take on advertising work is pretty simple, says V.F.’s royal correspondent Katie Nicholl. “If you are a working royal, then you don’t get to embark on commercial deals because there’s just simply too much of a conflict,” she says. So what’s a working royal? That’d be “a member of the royal family who carries out engagements on behalf of the royal family and the queen. They are a representative of Her Majesty the Queen, and they’re the HRH, the royal title,” Nicholl explains.

Phillips and Spencer are not working royals and don’t carry HRH designations, and when Ferguson signed with Weight Watchers she was almost a year divorced and hadn’t undertaken royal engagements in nearly five years. Other non-working royals are welcome to and do take on commercial work; Zara Tindall, Phillips’ sister, has held endorsements or partnerships with Land Rover, Rolex, clothing brand Musto, and iCandy, a line of strollers.

Ben Affleck Sets the Record Straight on Dating Life and Raya Rumors

Published

on


Ben Affleck is single, but he’s not on any dating apps.

The Oscar winner, who is rumored to have been on the popular celebrity app Raya, has declared that dating sites are just not for him. During a candid interview with journalist Diane Sawyer, part of which aired Friday on Good Morning America, Affleck opened up about his love life following his split from Jennifer Garner.

“I am not on any websites,” Affleck told Sawyer, noting he’s not on Tinder, Grindr or Bumble. “I know people who are on them and they have a fun time, but not me. I would love to have a relationship that was deeply meaningful and one to which I could be deeply committed.”

The 47-year-old actor, who shares three kids with ex Garner, went on to talk to Sawyer about sobriety and his battle with depression.

“I get depressed, take antidepressants, they’re very helpful for me,” Affleck shared. “I’ve taken them since I was 26 years old, various different kinds. I’ve switched and tried this and tried that. Sometimes they won’t tell you about some awful side effect, and you’ll come back and say, ‘Why am I 60 pounds heavier?'”

Affleck also spoke of his regrets, specifically regarding his family life.

“I’d like to find some sort of sense of meaning and purpose…I was not raised religious, I’m not a very good Christian, although I go to church with my kids,” Affleck shared. “Because it was important to Jennifer, and now I go too and I like it quite a bit.”

“Do you every say to yourself, ‘Maybe I can go back, we can go back and reset time and have that family intact again?'” Sawyer asked Affleck, who recently revealed that his divorce from Garner is the “biggest” regret of his life.

“There are things that I would love to go back and change,” Affleck told Sawyer. “I have regrets, I made plenty of mistakes, some big some small. I wish I could go back in time and change all kinds of things, but I can’t.”

Watch the video above to see Affleck talk about his sobriety, his family and his new movie, The Way Back!
