The ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ Reboot Trailer Is Bringing So Much Drama

After much anticipation, Peacock has finally unveiled the official trailer and first-look photos for the upcoming drama series Bel-Air, which reimagines NBC’s iconic sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in modern-day America. 

Executive produced by Will Smith, who played the titular role in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air from 1990 until 1996, Bel-Air will premiere its three first episodes on Super Bowl Sunday (February 13, 2022). Following the momentous launch, seven more one-hour episodes will then be released weekly on Peacock. “Bel-Air [offers] a new, dramatic take on Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air. As these two worlds collide, Will reckons with the power of second chances while navigating the conflicts, emotions, and biases of a world far different from the only one he’s ever known,” the series synopsis reads in a press email shared by the network. 

ICYMI, Bel-Air is inspired and based on Morgan Cooper’s reimagined fan-made trailer of the original series, which was released in 2019 and immediately went viral. “Like most 90’s kids, I grew up watching Fresh Prince. Even as a kid, I always thought there was more to the story… so I decided to make this,” Cooper captioned a tweet introducing the trailer at the time—and that he did. Cooper serves as director, co-writer, and executive producer of Bel-Air and his influence is evident in the new trailer. The first half of the trailer introduces us to the iconic characters of the past—but instead of punchy one-liners and bottled laughs, ominous music precedes each introduction and things quickly get real in the second half.

Hailing from West Philadelphia, much like his character, the series stars newcomer Jabari Banks as Will. The Banks family will include Adrian Holmes as Uncle Phil, Cassandra Freeman as Vivian Banks, Olly Sholotan as Carlton, Coco Jones as Hilary, and Akira Akbar as Ashley. Jimmy Akingbola will be in charge of bringing the iconic role of Geoffrey to life for the reboot, while Jordan L. Jones will star as Jazz and Simone Joy Jones will take on the role of Lisa. “With this dramatic reimagining, we wanted to create a show that stands on its own while honoring the spirit and innovation of the original series,” Cooper shared in an email.

There’s basically no genre that the best Netflix original movies aren’t covering right now. You’ve got your prestige Oscar bait from critically-acclaimed directors, like Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story, Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, and Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma.

The Twist-Knot Bun Is About to Be Your Go-To Hairstyle

Listen, we love a messy bun… but we also love the super sleek Y2K vibe that’s seen strands get neater and a little more ‘done’. That pretty much sums up how we feel right about now. We’re craving comfort (still wedded to our sweats), but we also want to feel pulled together, and a little bit schmancy. 

If a hairstyle could embody us right now, it would be the twist-knot bun. We keep seeing the trend crop up across our Insta grid from experts in the know who, from what we can tell, 100% understood the assignment.

The trend sees hair immaculately center-parted or combed back super neatly at the crown, then twisted up into a knot with the ends left loose and more casual. Basically, it’s a cool-girl step up from the mullet which is known for being business in the front, party in the back. Ditto—only this is way more wearable.

It offers the sort of versatility we like since it would work just as well for a black-tie event, paired with a slinky outfit and a kickass lip, as it would with a T-shirt and jeans (or those sweats we can’t stop going on about).

Even better, the twist-knot bun honestly so easy to do. All you need is a brush to ensure the front is nice and neat (middle parting optional). We recommend misting hair with a light hairspray to keep it snatched, or for curly or coily hair a gel offers extra hold.

For more grip you can tie your hair back into a ponytail, just down from where you’d place a high-ponytail, at the crown. Or skip straight to twisting your ponytail from the top to the bottom. Wrap the twist round on itself like an old-school bun, then leave the end of your ponytail loose and fasten in place with a hair tie.

The New York Yankees Just Hired the First Female Manager in Affiliate Baseball History

Rachel Balkovec just made some major league history.

On January 10, MLB (Major League Baseball) announced that the New York Yankees has hired 34-year-old Balkovc to manage their minor league Low-A affiliate, the Tampa Tarpons, making her the first female manager in affiliate baseball history.

This is not the first time the rising star in professional baseball has broken barriers in the sport. In 2019, Balkovec became the first female full-time hitting coach when she was hired for the New York Yankees’ rookie-level Florida Complex League team. Per MLB.com, she has a decade of experience in baseball and coached for the Australian Baseball League while Minor League baseball season was canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19. 

“The Yankees have hired Rachel Balkovec as the manager of the @tampatarpons, their Low-A affiliate,” MLB tweeted. “She’ll become the first female manager in affiliated professional history.”

Following the announcement, Twitter users took to the replies to share their congratulations. 

“From what I gathered, she has nearly a decade of work within MLB baseball, with being hired in 2019 as Yankees’ hitting coach as the most recent before this Tampa manager role,” one user wrote. “She has multiple graduate degrees, too, and she has earned this position! Congratulations, Rachel!”

Another added, “huge W for women in sports everywhere!!! Congratulations Rachel! Excited to watch you crush it!!” To that specific tweet, another baseball fan replied, “I got a feeling in the next 2-3 years she might be running [Yankees manager Aaron Boone] out of town or at least getting to the MLB coaching staff of some capacity. Her work speaks for itself.”

In 2019, Balkovec told The Associated Press that she considers her journey as a woman in the male-dominated world of baseball as an “advantage.”

“I view my path as an advantage,” Balkovec said at the time. “I had to do probably much more than maybe a male counterpart, but I like that because I’m so much more prepared for the challenges that I might encounter.”

25 Best Sweatpants for Women to Refresh Your Loungewear Game

The best sweatpants for women are here to remind you that opting out of “real” pants is still a valid act of self-care, not to mention—the coziest way to survive cold-weather temps.

Emily in Paris Renewed for Seasons 3 and 4: Everything We Know

Félicitations, Emily in Paris fans! Netflix’s comedy starring Lily Collins as everyone’s favorite American social media maven living in Paris has been renewed for season three. And season four.

Yes, you read that right. Emily in Paris is so popular for the streaming platform that it has been renewed for not just one but two additional seasons by Netflix. Maybe by the time season four comes out I’ll be fluent in French?

Emily in Paris premiered in October 2020 and instantly became a hit. Whether you loved it, hated it, or hated it so much you loved it despite yourself, the visually-pleasing series from Darren Star about a 20-something American who moves to Paris for work has really stuck with people. Season two of Emily in Paris dropped on Netflix in December 2021 and continued to be a massive hit for Netflix as Emily continued her Parisian adventures, got wrapped up in a love triangle, and met a new man in French class. 

In a press statement released in May 2021, Netflix revealed that Emily in Paris had been viewed by 58 million households during its first 28 days on the streaming platform, making it Netflix’s most popular comedy series of 2020. So basically what Netflix is trying to say is: This show is très populaire.

Here’s everything we know from the Emily in Paris seasons three and four so far:

Emily in Paris will return for a third and fourth season. On Monday, January 10, 2021, Netflix announced the comedy series was renewed by the streaming service for not one but two seasons.  

Release date. There are no details just yet, but based on when the first two seasons have premiered on Netflix, you can probably expect the third season to arrive in late 2022, and the fourth season to arrive in late 2023.

Mj Rodriguez Just Became the First Transgender Woman to Win a Golden Globe

Pose star Michaela Jaé “Mj” Rodriguez just made history as the first transgender woman to win a Golden Globe. 

On Sunday, January 9, Mj Rodriguez won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series, Drama. With her victory, Rodriguez beat Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show), Uzo Aduba (In Treatment), Elizabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale), and Christine Baranski (The Good Fight). On Pose, the series from Ryan Murphy that follows New York’s underground LGBTQ+ ball culture, Mj Rodriguez played Blanca. 

“OMG OMGGG!!!! @goldenglobes Wow! You talking about sickening birthday present!” Rodriguez wrote on Instagram after her win. “Thank you! This is the door that is going to Open the door for many more young talented individuals. They will see that it is more than possible. They will see that a young Black Latina girl from Newark ,New Jersey who had a dream, to change the minds others would WITH LOVE. LOVE WINS. To my young LGBTQAI babies WE ARE HERE the door is now open now reach the stars!!!!! @goldenglobes…To the nominees we are Queens. I’m so happy to share space with you! Each and every last one of you women are phenomenal.”

Last year, Mj Rodriguez also made history as the first trans person nominated for an Emmy in a major acting category. Rodriguez lost the award to Olivia Colman, who won for her performance as Queen Elizabeth II on Netflix’s The Crown. 

If you don’t remember, the Globes garnered criticism after the Los Angeles Times released a report in February 2021 that revealed the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (the Globes’s governing body) had no Black members. The L.A. Times also reported on what it calls alleged “financial and ethical lapses” within the HFPA. 

The HFPA has attempted to rehabilitate itself by adding 21 new members (six of them Black), hiring a new chief diversity officer, and changing its bylaws.
