Here’s Where You Can Watch The ‘Sweetbitter’ Cast While You Wait For Season 3

Tess’ Sweetbitter love triangle is coming to a head, and with only two episodes left to close out Season 2, she has to make a big decision. Whoever she chooses, fans will surely want to see how things play out in Sweetbitter Season 3. Though the show hasn’t officially been renewed, the door is open for the Starz series to come back, particularly now that they’ve expanded the story beyond Tess’ limited point of view.

The first season of the show stuck fairly close to Stephanie Danler’s novel. And while there was still book material to cover in Season 2, the series also explored the perspective of some of the other characters who make up the restaurant’s organized chaos.

"We almost thought of Season 1 as a six-episode pilot," showrunner Stu Zicherman told Eater. "When we came into Season 2, we were excited because it felt like we could start making the series, and the series, to us, is more expansive than just Tess. We cast all these other amazing actors and we wanted to start telling their stories." Hopefully, that ball will keep rolling all the way into Season 3.

It took about a month after Season 1 ended for Starz to announce that Sweetbitter had been renewed for Season 2, so just because we don’t know anything now doesn’t mean all hope is lost. Until then, you can catch all those captivating cast members Zicherman mentioned in their other upcoming projects; and don’t worry, they should still have time for more Sweetbitter should it come back.

Ella Purnell

In 2020, you can see Purnell as Lady Maria Grey in Julian Fellowes’ Belgravia, an adaptation of a period drama the Downton Abbey creator first published as a novel. Alice Eve, Harriet Walter, and Tom Wilkinson also star.

Tom Sturridge

Currently, Sturridge is starring on Broadway alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in Seawall/A Life through Sept. 29.

Evan Jonigkeit

The former X-Men actor can be seen in upcoming titles including Old Man in France and The Enemy Man. You can also catch up on Easy, which dropped its third season on Netflix in May.

Caitlin Fitzgerald

The UnREAL star, who plays Tess’ mentor, can be seen next in Spinning Gold, a star-studded Neil Bogart biopic about the music industry in the ’70s. The cast is lead by Jeremy Jordan and includes Peyton List, Samuel L. Jackson, Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Isaacs, Richard Dreyfus, Kenan Thompson, and Michelle Monaghan, to name a few.

As for Sweetbitter‘s boss man, Paul Sparks (aka Howard) has a few films lined up, though the most exciting may be Michael Showalter’s new comedy The Lovebirds. If you’re a fan of Wet Hot American Summer and They Came Together, you’ll have to check that out. In addition, Eden Epstein is the lead in indie drama Listen, and Daniyar is in the upcoming thriller Follow Me.

So while it certainly seems like most of the cast is available for a potential Sweetbitter Season 3, there are plenty of places to see their shining faces in the interim.

Leaked UK memos warn of food, drug shortages in Brexit chaos

Leaked British government documents have warned of disruptions across the country in the event that the U.K. leaves the European Union without a trade deal on Oct. 31.

Interested in Brexit?

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he is prepared to charge out of the EU regardless of whether he is able to renegotiate the Brexit deal struck with Brussels by his predecessor, Theresa May, over the next 10 weeks.

The Sunday Times published what it said were confidential government memos outlining the consequences of tearing up May’s deal, warning that a sudden British exit could lead to a decrease in the supply of fresh food.

The memos also warn of “significant” disruptions to drug supplies that could last for up to six months.

Britain’s Cabinet Office did not immediately respond to a request for comment by The Associated Press.

Tony Mortimer: How East 17 star went from fresh-faced youth to unrecognisable adult

Tony Mortimer is one of several celebrities appearing on Pointless Celebrities on BBC One today. The 1990s special sees presenters Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman welcoming a host of celebs onto the programme. Tonight’s episode features Colin Jackson and Roger Black, Rowetta and Tony Mortimer, Tim Vincent and Anna Ryder Richardson, and Kirsten O’Brie and Chesney Hawkes. Mortimer found fame with boy band East 17 which he began in 1991, named after the group’s Walthamstow postcode.

Tony Mortimer: East 17 star went from fresh-faced youth to unrecognisable adult

Fans of the 90s band may well remember Mortimer as a slight, clean-shaven youth with a head of brown hair.

However, decades later, fans have claimed they have failed to recognise him when he made public appearances.

In January 2018 the singer performed Stay Another Day on the Christmas special of The Great British Bake Off.

Sporting a chunkier physique than in his East 17 heyday, Mortimer’s hairline was appeared to be receding and a shadow of stubble could be seen across his face.

Fans expressed their shock confusion after spotting him on the hit baking show.

One viewer wrote on Twitter: “OMG is it that bloke from East 17? #GBBO’ while another added: “No way! Is that Tony Mortimer?”

A third tweeted: “Whoa whoa whoa… tony is old! #gbbo #east17.” Some people took to capital letters they were so flabbergasted: “WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO TONY MORTIMER,” one viewer commented.

Others added: “Actual Tony Mortimer on #GBBO” and “Tony Mortimer KLAXON! #GBBO.”

His change in appearance didn’t stop fans sharing their love of the band, however. One viewer wrote: “Loved seeing @tony_mortimer on #GBBO #NewYearTreat #stillafan.”

Others added: “Loving Tony Mortimer on The Bake Off!” and “@tony_mortimer great to see you on bake off.”

Mortimer has previously acknowledged gaining some weight since his youth. He spoke to London newspaper the Islington Gazette back in 2011 ahead of East 17’s tour.

“It’s weird, at school me an’ John [Hendy] used to dream about being in Wham and Club Tropicana,” he said.

“Then we were flying to Italy to do our video the other day I said to him, ‘This is it, after all these years, this is finally our Club Tropicana moment – but now we are old and fat’.

“I’ve not got long, and I reckon I need to lose about 15 stone for the tour!”

Pointless Celebrities is far from Mortimer’s only turn on the British television screen. He has appeared on Never Mind the Buzzcocks and competed in the BBC’s Winter Wipeout series.

The singer was a panellist on Channel 5 show The Wright Stuff in 2012 and again in June 2013. In the same year, he was a guest on ITV’s Loose Women.

Last week on Pointless Celebrities, the guests were DJs Rickie Haywood-Williams and Melvin Odoom, Loose Women panellist Andrea McLean and former presenter Carol Smilie, author Katy Brand and Su Pollard and comic royalty Syd Little and Eddie Large.

"Chrisley Knows Best" Star Chase Chrisley's Massive Tattoo Isn't Gone Yet — After Dad's Backlash!

Todd Chrisley really does have the final say when it comes to his kids!

On last night’s episode of "Chrisley Knows Best," fans saw the reality star yell at his son, Chase, for getting a giant Bible verse tattooed along his ribcage.

"We’ve got one child failing bible and another one who has gone and branded himself with it," Todd explained. "Both of those things are heartbreaking to me."

Launch GalleryUSA NetworkSee More Celebrity Ink

After all the backlash, Chase agreed to remove his new ink. While the show was filmed months ago, it seems he’s still getting the tatt taken off!

toofab caught up with Chase’s sis, Savannah, at LAX on Tuesday, where she admitted that her brother’s tattoo is just as bad as it looked on TV.

"Oh yeah, it’s just like it looks," she told us.

"[My dad’s] not taking any of it at all," she added. "[Chase’s] in his third or fourth treatment, so he’s still going strong. There are about 15. It’s pretty big."

While Todd was never on-board with the body art, Savannah said that she could get behind it.

"I personally believe if it’s something he wants and something he believes in, then that’s something he should do," she declared.

Their famous father seems to try to control everything when it comes to his kids, but now that his daughter is in college, he’s learned to let go … a little bit.


"He knows I’m not going to put myself in a position that I know I shouldn’t be in," Savannah said when we asked about dating. "He’s learned to trust me a little bit more."

The 18-year-old beauty has been dating country singer Blaire Hanks for over a year, so we’re guessing Todd is finally getting used to having him around.

Check out the new season of "Chrisley Knows Best" on Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. on the USA Network.

PETER OBORNE: An economic hurricane is coming and we should be scared

PETER OBORNE: Red lights are flashing. An economic hurricane is coming…and we should all be scared

On the surface, things are looking rosy. The Office for National Statistics last week announced that employment was at 76.1 per cent — the joint highest level since records began.

Consumers are still spending. The International Monetary Fund says that the British economy will grow 1.4 per cent next year.

But I’m not reassured. In fact, I don’t mind admitting that I’m rather scared. This week the red lights began to flash, a warning that a global recession is on the way. 

A Lehman Brothers worker in London is pictured carrying his belongings out of the firm, which collapsed before the 2008 crisis. Last week we learned that the UK economy — the world’s fifth largest national economy — shrank by 0.2 per cent in the three months to June this year

And not just a normal recession of the kind which comes along every decade or so. I fear that an economic hurricane might be about to descend.

Here in Britain and around the world we should prepare ourselves for job losses, failed businesses and busted hopes, and Brexit will have little to do with it.

Before I wrote about politics, I was a financial correspondent, and I know that economic trouble comes hand in hand with political turmoil. 

Go back to the Great Depression of the 1930s. It led to the rise of fascism in continental Europe and World War II. I don’t believe that history repeats itself, but it’s safe to say all kinds of problems lie ahead. 

Let’s take a more detailed look at the warning signs. Last week we learned that the UK economy — the world’s fifth largest national economy — shrank by 0.2 per cent in the three months to June this year.

Donald Trump’s threats against President Xi Jinping of China may win him domestic popularity. But it’s plain to see that the world is reverting into a system of rival protectionist blocks, reversing the direction of travel of the last 50 years

Some experts dismissed it as a blip caused by companies reducing stocks which had been expanded ahead of Britain’s original expected departure from the EU on March 29.

Perhaps. But look at Germany — globally the fourth largest economy and the engine room of Europe. Industrial production suffered its worst annual drop in a decade, and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) also fell by 0.1 per cent in the second quarter of 2019.

At least Germany is strong enough to weather a storm. Not so Italy, which is a financial catastrophe waiting to happen.

The country owes an eye-watering $2.3 trillion in public debt. GDP growth is all but non-existent and business confidence even lower amid political instability.

Its fragile governing coalition looks finished, with Matteo Salvini — deputy prime minister and head of the far-Right League party, — pushing for snap elections in the autumn.

Most of all, though, I am unsettled by China, the nation that has driven global economic growth for the last three decades.

The terrifying truth is that world growth has been financed on a borrowing splurge for the past decade. According to the Institute of International Finance, world debt rose $3 trillion in the first quarter of 2019, to $246 trillion — that is three times global GDP

Industrial production growth hit a 17-year low in July. At the same time, China’s export-led growth has been slowing fast. In July, it slumped to less than 5 per cent — Beijing needs much higher growth to sustain its investments at home and abroad.

Of course, cyclical downturns of this kind, however unpleasant, are routine occurrences. What makes me truly nervous about this one is mounting global debt, which now stands at a far higher level than it did ahead of the 2008 recession.

This is deeply worrying because back in 2008, governments around the world were able to solve — or, at least, ameliorate — the problem by investing huge sums, bailing out banks and re‑floating the economy via quantitative easing (in which central banks injected new money into the system).

Yes, it worked then, but if another financial crash of that size happens, we lack the means to do it again. National balance sheets have not recovered.

And it’s not just national debt. Average UK household debt is now more than £15,000 — that’s £2,000 more than the alarming level reached in 2008. 

Consider this terrifying statistic: unsecured debt stood at a £286 billion in 2008. That was unsustainable then, but today it stands at £428 billion.

The same trends are seen internationally. Last week, U.S. mortgage debt reached a record level — $9.406 trillion, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York — which, for the first time, surpasses the high of $9.294 trillion from 2008.

On Wednesday something sinister occurred. For the first time in 12 years, yields on long-term bonds fell below those on short-term bonds. 

For the last half century, this so-called inversion of the yield curve has been an infallible sign that recession is on its way.

The terrifying truth is that world growth has been financed on a borrowing splurge for the past decade.

According to the Institute of International Finance, world debt rose $3 trillion in the first quarter of 2019, to $246 trillion — that is three times global GDP. Unimaginable. And, I’m afraid, unsustainable.

As all of us know from sometimes unpleasant personal experience, you pay a price if you live beyond your economic means. A day of reckoning is on its way.

Go back to the Great Depression of the 1930s. It led to the rise of fascism in continental Europe and World War II. I don’t believe that history repeats itself, but it’s safe to say all kinds of problems lie ahead. Traders are pictured outside the Stock Exchange during the Wall Street Crash of 1929

The situation is made even more dangerous by looming trade wars.

Donald Trump’s threats against President Xi Jinping of China may win him domestic popularity. But it’s plain to see that the world is reverting into a system of rival protectionist blocks, reversing the direction of travel of the last 50 years.

The World Trade Organisation — which has done so much to create wealth by freeing up global trade — is almost impotent.

Worryingly, that’s the institution which post-Brexit Britain will depend on when we quit the security of the EU single market and customs union. But Brexit, no deal or otherwise, isn’t the reason for what may unfold in the coming year.

Expect a wave of national bankruptcies. One already looks inevitable in Argentina, and certain in Italy, which can’t survive in the Eurozone for much longer. Nor can Greece. And the knock-on effects will be huge.

We have become used to relatively benign economic growth stretching over decades. Now the world is entering a new and dangerous environment.

‘James Bond’ Aston Martin DB5 sells for record $6.4 million

James Bond’s iconic Aston Martin DB5 was sold at an RM Sotheby’s auction Thursday night for a record-setting $6.4 million. And he never even drove it.

The car was one of a pair that were used to promote the 007 film “Thunderball,” but never appeared onscreen. Nevertheless, it was built to the same specifications as the cars that were featured in that film and “Goldfinger,” spy gadgets included.

Fully restored, its extendable ramming bumpers, smokescreen, bulletproof shield and rotating license plates all function, although the machine gun barrels that emerge from the front marker lights do not fire.

The car was previously sold in 2006 for $2.09 million, and Thursdays’ winning bid is now the highest price ever paid for a DB5.

In 2010, one of the cars that were actually used in both films sold for $4.6 million. The other disappeared from a hangar at Boca Raton Airport in Florida and is still missing.

If only there were someone who could crack that case.

Woman says she was told by her doctor to lose weight, then diagnosed with cancer

A California woman who gave birth six months ago says seeking a second opinion after one doctor told her to lose weight may have saved her life.

Jen Curran, 38, of Los Angeles, said her blood pressure was high and her OBGYN detected a high amount of protein in her urine during the second trimester of her pregnancy, which was her first.

She was quickly diagnosed with the pregnancy complication preeclampsia and put on bed rest.

“My reaction was, ‘Let me stay relaxed because of this baby,'” Curran told “Good Morning America.” “I definitely put it out of my mind.”

Two months after Curran gave birth to her daughter, Rose, Curran’s doctor observed her protein level was even higher than it had been before pregnancy. Curran’s blood pressure was back to normal.

Curran, co-founder of The Ruby LA, a comedy theater and school, said the doctor told her to lose weight.

“It was like a slap across the face,” Curran recalled. “As someone who’s been overweight on and off for most of my life, it hasn’t been a health issue for me, but I didn’t feel like I should argue with her.”

Curran’s gut instinct told her that her medical issue was not one that could be solved by weight loss. She sought a second opinion and was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer.

“Completely shocking,” Curran said of the diagnosis. “I have this memory of him telling me that I have bone marrow cancer, but I can’t I don’t feel like I’m in the same room with him.”

Curran shared her story on Twitter to encourage other people, especially women, to be their own advocates when it comes to their health.

“Lose weight if you want to. But if you think something is seriously wrong with your body, and a doctor tells you weight loss is the key to fixing it, get a … second opinion,” she tweeted.

Curran began chemotherapy on Tuesday.

Her intuition served her well again right after her cancer diagnosis when she asked her doctor is she would be able to freeze her eggs. When that doctor was against it, Curran once again sought a second opinion and was told by a fertility doctor it would be safe to freeze her eggs.

She had her eggs retrieved and now plans to continue to grow her family once her cancer goes into remission.

“So many of us are so afraid to stick our neck on the line, [to] question authority,” Curran said. “When it’s for our kids we will much more readily do it, but do it for yourself because your kids need you around. Your family needs you around.”

“And women are so brilliant and intuitive. Women know their bodies,” she said.

Mother shaves her head live on TV to raise money for cancer research

Mother shaves off her long brown hair on live TV to raise money for cancer research after her daughter was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at 14 months

  • Carol Hanson was part of a group who shaved their heads live on This Morning 
  • Her daughter Olivia was  diagnosed with Neuroblastoma at 14-months-old
  •  The mum, from the UK, said it was an ‘amazing opportunity’ to raise awareness

A mother has braved shaving off her long brown hair on live TV to raise money for cancer research, after her daughter was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma when she was 14-months-old.

Carol Hanson was one of three people who underwent the shave live on today’s episode of This Morning, watched by her daughter Olivia, who has since recovered. 

Prior to losing her hair, Carol insisted she felt ‘absolutely fine’ and thought it was an ‘amazing opportunity’ to ‘bring awareness’ to the illness. 

Speaking before the shave, Carol confessed: ‘I’m feeling okay about the shave actually, absolutely fine. 

‘I think it’s an amazing opportunity to bring awareness and do as much fundraising as we can.’ 

The mum then revealed that Olivia, who has previously donated her own hair to the Princess Trust, would be helping the hairdresser out as he shaved her mothers locks. 

She said:  ‘Every year we try to do a fundraising event for lots of different things and this year Olivia is part of that as well. 

‘Every year we always discuss what we’re gonna do for that year and we actually lost my mother-in-law’s partner to bowel cancer two years ago.

‘Now it’s grown but I actually never dressed up as Thor as I found out I wasn’t allowed to dye it if I was going to donate it’.

Speaking during the shave, Jack said:  ‘She was my age when she found out she had stage four breast cancer, so I didn’t really know what was going on at the time. 

 ‘When she had her treatment and lost her hair I kept calling her Gomez from the Addams family, she found it funny.’
