Vin Diesel On 'Extra'

In another touching tribute to his close friend and co-star Paul Walker, Vin Diesel has named his newborn daughter Pauline. The actor announced the birth via Facebook on March 16 and revealed her name on NBC’s Today on Monday. Pauline is Diesel’s third child with longtime girlfriend Paloma Jimenez.

Mo'ne Davis signs copies of her new book.

After recently announcing the making of a Disney Channel biopic, Throw Like Mo’, Mo’ne Davis was spotted in Philly signing copies of her new book, Mo’ne Davis: Remember My Name: My Story From First Pitch To Game Changer. While news of her movie was positively received by most, college baseball player Joey Casselberry of Bloomsburg University was dropped from his team after tweeting, “Disney is making a movie about Mo’ne Davis? WHAT A JOKE. That slut got rocked by Nevada.”

Mo’ne, being the mature 13-year-old that she is, let the ugly remark roll right off her back. She also asked that the athlete be reinstated to his team. TMZ reports:

TMZ Sports spoke with a rep for Bloomsburg who tells us … President David L. Soltz received an email from Davis and her coach in which they ask that Joey Casselberry’s dismissal from the team be reconsidered.

Unfortunately for Casselberry, that’s not going to happen:

While Bloomsburg says they respect Davis’ opinion and praise her for being incredibly mature about the situation — the school will NOT reinstate the baseball player … saying, “Right now we’re standing firm.”

We hope he learned his lesson.

Last night, Kerry Washington was presented with the Vanguard Award at the 2015 GLAAD Media Awards and Scandal‘s leading lady took the opportunity to deliver some powerful words:

“Women, poor people, people of color, people with disabilities, immigrants, gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, trans people, interest people…have been pitted against each other and made to feel like there are limited seats at the table for those of us who fall into the category of other.”
