The Morning Shade with Sue!


It apparently runs in the family...Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos's son - Michael - will now make HIS television debut. He was cast as the younger version of Mark's character on the show Riverdale. He'll be featured in a flashback episode on the hit CW series which is going into its third season. Both Kelly and Mark posted Instagram messages congratulating him and saying how proud they are. Thinking if you're the handsome 21-year-old son of Kelly and Mark you have some connections in the industry but good for him.

It's been a burning question now for over 7 years...will we see the first black actor cast as 007...ih-dris Elba has been the rumored replacement for years but the 45-year-old British actor seems to be toying with his fans now. The 45-year-old star, best known for Luther and Thor was said to be the one who would succeed Daniel Craig but now he's using Twitter to have a little fun. He Tweeted "The name's Elba, Idris Elba." Then followed it with "Don't believe the hype." 

The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, is reportedly very ill.  Some media outlets are saying the 76-year-old singer is surrounded by friends and family members. She has dealt with numerous health problems over the years, and was diagnosed with cancer in 2010.  The last time she took the stage was in August 2017. Just last summer.

Actress Linday Lohan getting some backlash for comments she made in a recent interview. She had some harsh words for women taking part in the #MeToo movement saying it makes them look weak. She also said women who experience harassment or assault should deal with it when it happens, not many years later. She added that she can't go along with attention seekers. Wow. BTW, she has an upcoming MTV reality show which should be...interesting.

Stars, even with their body guards and oodles of money for tight security, can be the victims of theft. John Mayer is the latest example. His Hollywood House was broken into on Friday and the thieves made off with music equipment and other personal items worth between $100-200,000. Mayer had bought the lavish, more than 7,000-square-foot home from Adam Levine and wife Behati Prinsloo for more than $13 million earlier this year.

Casey Affleck has addressed allegations of harassment for the first time in a recent interview. He apologized for behaving inappropriately on the set of "I'm Still Here" back in 2010. He does sound sincere, he accepts full responsibility. Those allegations by the way led to civil lawsuits from two women which were eventually settled out of court.
