She told an audience that included Sharpton and Mayor Eric Adams that she wanted to be there to support her supporters. Adams, a New York state senator at the time, was among several Black lawmakers who wore hooded sweatshirts to a 2012 legislative session to call attention to the 17-year-old’s death in Sanford, Florida.

Jada Pinkett Smith reunites with Girls Trip co-star Queen Latifah in an old-fashioned heist on Sunday's return of The Equalizer, and only ET exclusively debuts a first look at their high-action team-up.

In the episode titled "Legacy," Robyn McCall (Latifah) joins forces with Jessie "The Worm" Cook (Smith), a brilliant and unpredictable master thief from McCall's CIA past, to recover a valuable painting stolen from a Black family during the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre.

In ET's sneak peek, McCall and Jessie partner up for an unlikely mission that harkens back to the old days. And while McCall is more than a little worried that their presence will be caught on camera, Jessie is less bothered as she doesn't think twice to test out the surveillance cameras. When no sirens go off after her "test," Jessie knowingly tells McCall, "We're fine."

But their disagreements don't end there. With the duo racing against the clock, McCall isn't sure about the layout of the building, prompting Jessie to reveal that she's memorized the blueprints -- defiantly leading the way before circling back and going back the direction they came from. "Actually it's this way. I was thinking about the blueprints upside down," she quips.

Jessie stops McCall from venturing any further when she notices sconces on the ceilings that actually are "next gen motion detectors." Any slight movement, as in a bat of an eyelash, and they're done for. But Jessie believes whatever software is running them might not be fully up-to-date and that slight loophole may be their upper hand. Watch the exclusive clip above to see what happens next.

Smith and Latifah both starred in 2017's Girls Trip and 1996's Set It Off.

The Equalizer airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

Shanna Moakler's boyfriend, Matthew Rondeau, has been arrested following an alleged physical confrontation with Moakler.

A spokesperson for the LAPD tells ET, "Matthew Rondeau was arrested today, 2/24/22, morning at 7:40 am PST for felony domestic violence. His bail is set to $50,000." According to TMZ, which first broke the news, Rondeau allegedly got into a fight with Moakler on Wednesday night at their home. The outlet reports that Moakler left the home but returned Thursday morning, where the fighting allegedly continued, and allegedly turned physical.

TMZ reports cops were called to the house and they saw visible marks on her body, which the outlet reports led to Rondeau's arrest. The arrest comes on the heels of Rondeau posting a video on Moakler's Instagram account, in which he accuses her of cheating on him while calling her a number of names, including a "fu*king liar," "sociopath" and "narcissist." In that same video, Rondeau also uses a racial slur that appears to be directed at someone commenting on his Instagram Live session. On his own Instagram account, Rondeau took to his Story and posted the text "Your [sic] f**king disgusting @shannamoakler."

Moakler's manager, David Weintraub, released a statement that read, "Thank you to everyone calling with concern about Shana, she is ok and survived this traumatic experience." He added, "Especially to all of her fans who saw this horrible incident unfold on social media. Thankfully the police saved her from harms way and she is doing fine. At the moment she asks that she is giver her space to adjust to life after this trauma."

Moakler's daughter, 16-year-old Alabama Barker (whom Moakler shares with ex Travis Barker) took to Instagram and said she's been in communication with her mother and "she is okay." She ended the Instagram Story with a heart emoji.

On Thursday night, Rondeau took his Instagram Story to address his physical confrontation with Moakler, calling it "one of the most heartbreaking days of my life."

"Today was one of the most heartbreaking days of my life," Rondeau wrote. "To my family and friends, I just want you to know I love you so much. You know I'd never lay a hand on another woman. My mother is my angel and my best friend. She raised me right."

Rondeau went on to blame "this industry" for spinning the truth on the incident before adding that he's "safe" and "moving forward."

"I'm so disappointed and sad to how this industry spins and flips the truth," he continued. "I'm safe and I'm moving forward."

He also accused Moakler of making him out to be "the villain" in their fight.

"I'm just mentally drained and in complete disbelief...the love of my life has made me out to be the villain," Rondeau added. "This will be my last post for a while. God bless everyone who actually knows the truth of who I am and how I am as a man."

The arrest also comes just over a little a week after ET spoke with Moakler following her elimination from the Celebrity Big Brother house. Moakler talked on a variety of subjects, including her relationship with Rondeau, whom Moakler said she's "madly in love" with.

Moakler and Rondeau rekindled their relationship back in October after initially calling it quits earlier in 2021. There was a report that Rondeau was rethinking proposing to Moakler after she was accused of flirting with Lamar Odom in the CBB house before her ouster.

The set of The Crown could have used some palace guards.

The production was hit by thieves who stole between 200 and 350 antiques and props from the set of the show's fifth and sixth seasons, which are being filmed in Mexborough, England. The value of the antiques is said to be around $150,000.

"We can confirm the antiques have been stolen and we hope that they are found and returned safely," a Netflix spokesperson shared with ET on Thursday.

The spokesperson added that "replacements will be sourced" for the stolen antique props and "there is no expectation that filming will be held up."

According to a post in the Antiques Trade Gazette, asking for help in recovering the stolen goods, thieves absconded "a replica of the 1897 Imperial Coronation coach egg by Fabergé is also among the missing items (pictured above), 12 sets of silver candelabra and seven gold candelabra, a clock face of a William IV grandfather clock (leaving the longcase behind), a quantity of Russian icons, a 10 piece silver dressing table set and St Louis gilt Crystal glassware and decanters."

"The items stolen are not necessarily in the best condition and therefore of limited value for resale," Alison Harvey, set decorator for the production, told the Antiques Trade Gazette. "However, they are valuable as pieces to the UK film industry."

The fifth season of The Crown is set to debut in November.

Dylan McDermott’s wild ride as Richard Wheatley is about to come to an end on Law & Order: Organized Crime. The actor first joined in season 1 as the drug cartel owner and formidable foe to Christopher Meloni, who made his return to the Law & Order franchise as Elliot Stabler in the spinoff. 

Since then, McDermott has become a fan favorite as well as a welcome addition to creator Dick Wolf’s ever-expanding TV universe. So much so that he was recruited to take over as lead on FBI: Most Wanted following Julian McMahon's exit from the CBS procedural. 

Ahead of McDermott’s final episode on March 3, which closes out Wheatley’s chapter and starts a new one focused on Preston Webb (Mykelti Williamson), Meloni reflects on the time spent with his co-star. “Look, I’ll miss every aspect of him,” Meloni tells ET. 

“He was good in front of the camera. He was great when it was off,” the star continues, acknowledging McDermott’s “cheeky sensibility and good sense of humor.” 

Meloni ends by saying, “So, I wish him the best.”

While McDermott is on his way out, Denis Leary is making his Law & Order debut as NYPD officer Frank Donnelly in tonight’s episode of Organized Crime. His character, an officer from a nearby precinct, has a past with Stabler – their fathers were on the force together – and the show will see the two rekindle their friendship. 

“That is really cool,” Meloni says of the new addition, adding that working with Leary is “a hidden dream come true for me. I really have been doing some fun stuff.” 

Leary’s addition to the series comes ahead of Jennifer Beals’ anticipated debut as the wife of Webb, a drug kingpin and leader of the Marcy organization, and someone the actress says has “good” intentions

Leary and Beals follow a string of notable stars that have appeared on the series, including McDermott, Tamara Taylor as Wheatley’s wife, Angela, Ron Cephas Jones as Congressman Leon Kilbride, Vinnie Jones as Albanian gangster Albi Briscu, Michael Raymond-James as crime boss Jon Kosta and Guillermo Díaz as Lt. William Brewster. 

Tonight’s new episode of Organized Crime also closes out a three-hour block of Law & Order originals, with the mothership series returning with season 21 and Special Victims Unit airing in between. When it comes to the new Law & Order Thursdays, Meloni says “it’s long overdue.” 

“I’m very excited about it… I think it’s a perfect fit,” he concludes.

Law & Order is back! After initially being canceled after season 20 in 2010, creator Dick Wolf’s mothership series, which has spawned a number of spinoffs and an expansive TV universe, is returning with season 21. 

Led by executive producer and showrunner Rick Eid, the revival features returning stars Sam Waterston as District Attorney Jack McCoy and Anthony Anderson as Det. Kevin Bernard. They are joined by several newcomers, including Camryn Manheim as Lt. Kate Dixon, Odelya Halevi as ADA Samantha Maroun, Hugh Dancy as ADA Nolan Price and Jeffrey Donovan as Det. Frank Cosgrove as the Manhattan unit continues to investigate crimes and prosecute the offenders.

Ahead of the series’ return, here’s what to know about season 21, returning faces and potential crossovers with Law & Order: Organized Crime and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

New Stories, Same Structure

“The show is very much the same, same story structure and all,” Waterston told ET, referring to its unfaltering format of each episode of the crime procedural being typically split into two parts, with the first following the detectives as they investigate the crimes and the second following the legal proceedings as the lawyers bring the case to trial.

NBC

While subsequent spinoffs have played with the format of the episodes and its storytelling, Law & Order will stay true to what made it successful in the first place. “That’s a testament to the success of the show,” Anderson said. But the stories told this time around certainly will be different, especially over a decade after the series first went off the air.

“What we’re doing on the show is going to reflect the changes in society, the changes in police work,” the actor said of the new episodes, which will very much address the new reality of what’s happening now.

Ripped From the Headlines

Another familiar element that will very much be seen is the series’ tendency to tell stories that are ripped from the headlines. “I think people, you know, are interested in seeing and being a part of those stories that are being told and being a part of history,” Anderson said, while Waterston added that the biggest challenge for the writers “is how to choose because there’s such a rich store of stories.” 

Law & Order Season 21
NBC

Even the season 21 premiere (“The Right Thing”), which investigates the murder of a notorious entertainer, will remind fans of Bill Cosby, who was released from prison after the conviction in his sexual assault case was overturned. 

And going beyond that, it “became clear pretty quickly that they really stuck to that ripped from the headlines thing,” Dancy said of the new episodes, noting that it makes the show “quite contemporary.”   

Familiar Faces

In addition to Waterston and Anderson reprising their roles as series regulars, season 21 will see several familiar faces from the original run of Law & Order making appearances, with a former ADA from the earlier seasons guest-starring in the premiere. 

“In the first episode, there’s a very famous actor that you’ll notice right away,” Donovan teased. “So, there’s gonna be a lot of surprises and a lot of recurring guest stars that people have kind of grown to love in the last two decades.”

While speaking with the Television Critics Association, Eid confirmed that there are even more coming. “We’re going to keep those names quiet right now. But there’s so many great actors who have been involved in the show, and the opportunity for them to come back in some capacity is really exciting,” he said. “So, I think we definitely want to find ways to bring back several of our alumni.”

NBC

And for Manheim, who has been a longtime fan of the series and made brief appearances in earlier seasons before joining season 21 full time, said, “I have been surprised and excited already several times. And I think the viewers will be, too.” She added, “One of the most amazing things about being on this show is you come to work and then New York’s finest actors come and play with you.”

Halevi echoed her co-star’s sentiment. “We have guest stars that I would only dream about working with,” she said, teasing that some of them are “mind-blowing.” 

While not confirmed, Jesse L. Martin said he was open to the possibility of portraying Det. Ed Green again. “I certainly hope so,” he said before adding, “There were a lot of loose ends when Ed Green left the scene, if you will. Yes, maybe.”

However, one original cast member that’s not interested in returning is Dianne Wiest, who played Interim District Attorney Nora Lewin. “I don’t think so,” she told ET. “I don’t think they’d want me back to tell you the truth. Not at all, not at all, no.”

Potential Crossovers 

With Law & Order kicking off a three-hour block of the TV universe, which includes SVU and Organized Crime, there’s bound to be crossovers between all three series. And everyone, including stars of the spinoffs, are looking forward to seeing all three series unite at least for one night, if not more. 

“All I can tell you is that my contract has crossovers written into it all over the place,” Manheim said.

“We’re going to run out of murderers eventually, so we’re going to need some other kind of criminals,” Dancy joked, referring to the fact that SVU tackles sexually-based crimes while OC deals with mobs and cartels. 

Law & Order Season 21
NBC

“It will be really exciting to see how all our writers work together to make connections with the different departments and different forces,” said Danielle Moné Truitt, who plays Sgt. Ayanna Bell on OC

“Dick has already told me that we’re going to. So, it’s just a matter of time,” said Mariska Hargitay, who plays Capt. Olivia Benson on SVU. “I’m excited about the night that it’s a three-show crossover, which sounds impossible but we can do it.”


Law & Order returns with season 21 on Thursday, airing the same night as Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Law & Order: Organized Crime on NBC.

This spring, there will be no shortage of Jane Seymour on TV, with the actress starring in an all-new murder mystery on Acorn TV in addition to her recurring role on the CBS sitcom, B-Positive. Ahead of Harry Wild’s April debut, ET has the exclusive first trailer for the series, which sees Seymour’s character starting a detective agency after retirement. 

Created and co-written by David Logan, Harry Wild follows a woman named Harriet who finds herself at a crossroads after retiring from her long career as a university literature professor. After a mugging forces her to move in with her son Charlie (Kevin Ryan), a senior police detective, she starts to interfere in his murder investigation and realizes she has a knack for solving crimes. 

The eight-part series then sees Harriet, with the help of a troubled teenager named Fergus Reid (Rohan Nedd), tackling one new mystery after the next, including chasing down a fledgling serial killer.

“It’s the most amazing writing and amazing show and one I’m so proud of,” Seymour said during the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, referring to Logan who also worked with mystery writer Jo Spain on the series. “I mean, it’s all there on the page. It’s hilarious, but it’s also very bright.” 

“Of course, I’m playing an English professor, so I spend the whole time correcting everyone’s grammar, deciphering terrible murders from my knowledge of English literature and history and the rest of it,” she continued. “And Rohan, who plays my sidekick, who quit school and doesn’t wanna learn anything, I’m getting him through his schoolwork while he’s teaching me how to be street smart, which clearly I’m not.”

Seymour added that the best part for her was getting to star in “an action thing and have it be that intelligent.” 


Harry Wild premieres Monday, April 4, 2022 on Acorn TV.

Sam Hunt's pregnant wife has filed for divorce, ET has confirmed.

According to the legal docs, obtained by ET, Hannah Lee Fowler filed for divorce in Williamson County, Tennessee.  In the docs, Fowler cites "irreconcilable differences" as the reason to terminate the marriage, and she accuses the country star of "inappropriate marital conduct" after claiming he is "guilty of adultery." Fowler also revealed she's pregnant and is due in May. The pregnancy news had not been previously disclosed.

Fowler, 33, lists the the date of separation as Feb. 18, the same day she filed for divorce. She also stated that all hope for a reconciliation are exhausted. She's asking for alimony and a parenting plan for their first child.

The divorce filing comes six months after the 37-year-old "Make You Miss Me" singer pled guilty in his 2019 DUI case. The guilty plea resulted in the singer losing his license for one year.

Hunt, who has not been seen wearing his wedding ring this year, married Fowler in 2018 after being on-and-off since 2008. Hunt released Montevallo in 2014 to much acclaim. The album was largely inspired by Fowler, as Montevallo is her hometown. The pair had been broken up when he wrote the album.

Back in 2018, Hunt spoke to ET about how Fowler deals with his heartthrob status.

"From the beginning I never wanted to sell that," Hunt told ET. "My music... in a lot of the songs, the guy is trying to win over the affection of the female, so I think that created that character that I didn't quite really plan on creating. So now that I'm married I sort of approach that dynamic a little differently than I used to... I don't lay into it anymore... Now I just keep it about the music."
