The AP reports that Billie Lourd, Fisher's daughter, is expected to attend the service. Gary, Fisher's beloved French Bulldog (and social media star in his own right), will probably make an appearance as well.Lourd has not shied away from public view following the shocking and sudden deaths of her mother and grandmother. The Scream Queens actor was involved in the planning of the private funeral held in January and has also posted several loving tributes on social media. "Finding the funny might take a while but I learned from the best and her voice will forever be in my head and in my heart," she captioned one throwback Instagram of her and her mother. She even took a minute to wish Gary a happy birthday earlier this month.Fans who can't make the memorial service in California can watch online: It will stream live on Reynolds' official website: debbiereynolds.com.Like what you see?

The Love Actually Reunion Was Everything We Hoped For & More

The time has come. After months of buildup and excitement, sneak peeks, behind-the-scenes snippets, surprise supermodel additions, and so much anticipation, the Love Actually (2003) reunion-cum-sequel aired last night in the U.K. for Red Nose Day. And while the original holiday film, which aired 14 years ago, wasn't the biggest hit with critics during its initial release, it seems that even the coldest hearts have warmed up, because the 12-minute skit won over just about everyone who saw it. If you're not looking for spoilers, click away!The Daily Mail reports that not only were many of the film's beloved characters back in full force, so were the movie's most beloved moments. Fans got another glimpse of Mark (Andrew Lincoln) and his cue cards — only anyone shipping Mark and Juliet (Keira Knightley) got their fandom doused in London drizzle, because Mark's wife is none other than Kate Moss, who had her own set of cue cards and jokes about her beau's beard.Thank you! You are AMAZING! You’ve helped us raise a fabulous £71,308,475 so far for #rednoseday pic.twitter.com/CEjwPSGxPo— Red Nose Day (@rednoseday) March 25, 2017 //platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsFor those fans who were rooting for Colin Firth's Jamie and his Portuguese wife, Aurelia (Lucia Moniz), they'll be happy to know that not only have Firth's turtlenecks survived the decade-plus intact, the couple is living happily with their three bilingual kids (cue the aww s) and has one more on the way. And what about Jamie's Portuguese skills? Let's just say he's still working on it, but Aurelia is more than happy to help.The other pair in contention for the Cutest Couple award, Joanna (Olivia Olson) and Sam (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), a.k.a. the kiddos are living it up in NYC. They've kept their childhood romance alive, but there's a huge twist: The two are in London to visit Sam's dad, Daniel (Liam Neeson), so that Joanna can ask him a major question. "I was wondering if I can ask for your son's hand in marriage?" she says. Let's just say Daniel wasn't the only one frozen in shock.What about Hugh Grant shaking his booty to Hotline Bling on #rednosedayactually? We loved it 😍🔴❤️ pic.twitter.com/39KVlAeumV— Red Nose Day (@rednoseday) March 24, 2017 //platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsOf course, Hugh Grant came back, too. David got re-elected as prime minister and it looks like he hasn't lost any of his moves. But instead of grooving to a throwback Motown tune, Grant got to show off his skills with a thoroughly modern track: Drake's "Hotline Bling." Also, in a very timely speech, the fictional PM addressed his country, saying, "Wherever you see tragedy, you see bravery." Following the events in London just one day before the special aired, it was a powerful and poignant note.To learn what happened to all of the characters, you'll have to wait until May 25, when the Red Nose Day special makes its way stateside. Until then, you'll just have to get the details from your overseas pals and wait patiently. After 14 years, what's another few months?Like what you see?

Is There A Clue Hiding In This Pretty Little Liars Poster?

As the final 10 episodes of Pretty Little Liars inch closer and closer (April 18, in case you're still catching up or need one last seven-season binge), fans are looking for clues anywhere — and everywhere — that they can. The latest leak? Entertainment Tonight reports that Freeform just released the series' final poster. Of course, eagle-eyed PLL devotees are taking their microscopes to the image and coming up with some insane fan theories. Who's A, a.k.a. Uber A, a.k.a. A.D.? Nobody will know until the last episodes air, but that's not stopping the speculation.April 18. We're comin' for you. pic.twitter.com/0pbFpBfkq5— I. Marlene King (@imarleneking) March 25, 2017 //platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsET 's exclusive look at the season 7B key art (the technical name for a poster...and the second part of season 7) gives us a peek at Aria (Lucy Hale), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Hanna (Ashley Benson), Emily (Shay Mitchell), and Alison (Sasha Pieterse) — albeit in a fittingly mysterious and cryptic collage. The pic was shared by the cast and crew, too, who obviously can't wait for fans to check it out. From what we can see, there are plenty of smoky eyes, a few perfect blowouts, and the text, "Liars to the end." A tease? For sure. Any clues? You'll have to dig deeper.Why is it that Bellisario is the only one with both eyes fully facing the viewer? Why do the triangles frame her face just so, hinting at the shape of a black hood? Does a big bad always wear a hood? And what color is Hale's lipstick? (Oh, that's not a hint — just something we need to know, stat.)Past PLL posters have given fans something to go on — shattered glass, gas masks, a glam police lineup, and a coffin are only a few of the memorable images. Does this poster finally reveal the real identity of A? We won't know until executive producer and showrunner I. Marlene King wants us to, but one thing's for sure: Nobody will see it coming.Like what you see?
