Lady Gaga’s Joanne Tour stopped in Houston on Sunday and instead of chilling at the hotel until showtime, the singer spent her day volunteering to support hurricane relief efforts.

‘HOUSE OF CARDS’ MOVES FORWARD WITHOUT KEVIN SPACEY – (12/05/2017)

It’s official. House of Cards is set to resume in early 2018 without Kevin Spacey on board, Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos tells Variety.

Production on the show’s sixth season was suspended in October, following sexual assault allegations against Spacey. Star Trek star Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of making unwanted advances on him when he was just 14 and Spacey was 26. Since then, several other men have come forward to share their stories.

  • Season 6 will move forward with eight episodes starring Robin Wright. The final season will not include Spacey, as previously reported. At the end of Season 5, the show had already pivoted, focusing more on Wright’s character Claire Underwood, who was sworn in as president.
  • “We were really excited we could get to an agreement… for the conclusion of the show,” said Sarandos, speaking Monday at UBS’s Global Media and Communications Conference in New York. He added that 370 people work directly on the show and 2,000 people in Baltimore also have job that involve HOC.
