Columbus Short Pursues Comedy After Scandal Firing



Nothing can hold Columbus Short down. He might have been fired from Scandal amidst his legal troubles, but he’s not giving up just yet.

Last week the actor joked about “starting from the bottom” and pursuing standup comedy, but this week he’s landed a new role, in a romantic comedy titled, “Mr. Right” Madam Noiree reports.

Justified’s Erica Tazel will play Short’s leading lady in the film.

Short definitely feels his luck changing posting,“Even though you dont see things happening things are always happening,” on Twitter last night. 

But that’s not enough to keep Short from landing in the news!! According to TMZ, Short returned to his house to back up some belonging’s with his friend Tilly Key, when his estranged wife violently attacked and threatened her. Key filed for a battery report for the February attack last week following the taped attack.

The singer-vocal coach also issued a Instagram warning to Short’s wife, stating, “Stay away from me… I have 2 years to press charges. You already told me “I’m gonna slit your throat, I’m gonna kill you, gonna break your neck” that’s enough already. The world is my witness stop following me @taneemcshort and you did tell me screaming in my ear “I’m crazier than you Bitch” so trust I heard you and I’m not underestimating your mental health.”

Last week TMZ reported that Short was pursuing standup comedy after being fired from the successful Shonda Rhimes drama Scandal.  They said he was putting his efforts into getting his career back on track. Short has been spotted doing standup comedy at local comedy clubs and he’s  apparently quite funny. Who would have thought?

In a recent interview the actor joked that he’s “back at the bottom.” Yeah, being accused for trying to kill your wife, having a restraining order filed against you and knocking a guy out in a bar can do that to you!

He apparently didn’t take getting fired from the show quite well either. When asked if he really was fired, he replied, “They sent me a SnapChat with a message. It disappeared real fast. Nah. They fired me like Back To The Future part two. They sent me a fax: “You’re fired”.’ Sounds believable.

He admits that his co-stars didn’t have his back when things started going south for him. Please, Olivia Pope cannot be seen getting mixed up with a gladiators Scandal. Plus, she’s off somewhere on an island with Jake. Give her a break!

All jokes aside, Short has actually violated his restraining order six times already.

His wife apparently asked the judge to change the restraining order to a permanent injunction after Short tried to contact her on six different occasions.

The judge has extended the restraining order to June 30, the next court date, as he considers a ruling. If convicted Short faces up to four years in state prison.

Honestly, nothing about the actor seems funny and to sum it all up, his life is a hot mess. But what do you think? Would you see Short at a comedy club??  Would you watch him in a romantic comedy knowing details of his personal love life. Watch the full interview with TMZ below. Personally, it looks like he’s in an altered state of mind.

When Does ‘Manifest’ Season 4 Part 2 Release on Netflix?



Are you ready for Flight 828 to make its final descent?

On April 7, Netflix revealed the release date for the second half of the plane drama, along with a new teaser trailer to hold fans over. 

Manifest Season 4 Part 2—all 10 episodes—will land on the streamer on Friday, June 2, 2023. For those that are keeping score, it’s a year ahead of the June 2, 2024 Death Date (so does this mean they find a way to beat it?!). 

Netflix typically releases new episodes at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time, which means it will drop at 3:00 am Eastern and 2:00 am CT. 

And according to the teaser trailer, things are just as ominous as we expected when we saw the final shot of Season 4 Part 1 of Angelina bringing forth destruction via volcanic fissures.  

“The world is ending and we know when,” Josh Dallas’ Ben Stone remarks in the trailer as everyone emphasizes June 2 numerous times. 

Here’s the full synopsis for the forthcoming final set of episodes. 

“A mysterious accident delivers ominous warnings on a biblical scale that will further jeopardize the livelihood of all the passengers,” the synopsis reads. “As Michaela [Melissa Roxburgh] grieves the loss of her beloved husband Zeke [Matt Long], she must team up with her old flame Jared [J.R. Ramirez] to find new methods to investigate Callings.”

Watch the teaser below:

The end may be near, but there’s still plenty of story left to tell—and we hope that they do right by the ending, giving a satisfactory conclusion to longtime fans who have rallied behind the series from day 1 when it was still on NBC.
