Ariana DeBose is a Terrible Roommate in ‘Westworld’

Published

on

I love Ariana DeBose. I adored her Oscar-winning turn as Anita in West Side Story and obsessed over her tap dancing routing in Schmigadoon! Ariana DeBose is categorically awesome. Her new Westworld character is not, though. DeBose plays Evan Rachel Wood’s party-loving roommate Maya. At first, Maya seems like the platonic ideal of a “cool roommate” for Wood’s Christina. She asks for advice on shoes and sets up dates for Christina. However, but the end of the Westworld Season 4 premiere, Maya had left a really bad taste in my mouth.

Ariana DeBose’s Westworld character is an absolutely terrible roommate. She peer-pressures Christina into going on a date and then abandons her, forcing the shy Christina to walk home alone and straight into the path of her unhinged stalker. Maya breaks the number one rule of being a female roommate/friend by shrugging off Christina’s safety. And, spoilers, but in next week’s episode of Westworld, she doubles down on her rude roommate status.

Sure, the Man in Black (Ed Harris) might be a psychopathic cyborg murdering people left and right, but I personally think Maya could turn out to be a worse kind of villain. A shitty roommate.

Westworld Season 4 opens — I guess, because what is time in Westworld? — about seven years after the events of Westworld Season 3. While the host formerly known as Dolores Abernathy is dead, actress Evan Rachel Wood has returned. Now she is an auburn-haired writer named Christina who works at Olympiad Entertainment, where she contrives of backstories for NPCs in video games. At first, it seems that Christina’s life is pretty idyllic. After all, she lives in a utopian vision of New York City, full of glittering tech and sharply dressed professionals. Her roommate, Maya, seems fun and cool. However it’s becomes apparently more and more clear that something is wrong with this world and Christina may be one of the only people to see it.

One thing that Christina can’t see, though, is Maya may not have her best interests at heart.

So here’s the thing that bugs me about Maya. First of all, it seems that Christina and Maya aren’t random single ladies who found each other on Craigslist, but roomies who were friends first. When that happens, there is going to be a tighter bond between two female roommates. To wit, Maya is shaping Christina’s social life, with invitations to meet men and pleas to come out dancing. But it seems that Maya can’t catch a clue that Christina would rather just hang out at home and paint than scour the city for men. In fact, Christina feels deeply uncomfortable on the date Maya sets her up on. So much so, I didn’t understand why Maya couldn’t tell her friend wanted nothing to do with the outing.

Then Maya did the worst thing a woman can do to her bestie when they are out on the town: she abandoned Christina. We watch as Christina walks home alone in safe-appearing streets, only to be cornered by a stalker with a knife. Her life is briefly in danger, but a mysterious hero steps in, leaving Christina with only a shallow gash on her arm. Guys, I was so mad at Maya. She left Christina high and dry and it was creepy, bad, terrible roommate behavior.

The unspoken rule of being a single woman sharing a home with another single female roommate is you look out for one another. You make sure you both get home safe. You pick up cold medications when the other is sick. You take care of each other because you know no one else will. That’s why Maya’s behavior struck me as so odd. It was so…bad.

Spoilers, but Maya’s bad roommate energy extends in Westworld Season 4 Episode 2. No, she’s not revealed to be an evil robot. Christina makes herself a cup of coffee and Maya just steals it for herself, thereby breaking the second sacred law of being a roommate. You don’t steal your roomie’s food, especially not their caffeine.

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

One player unsuccessfully tried to score the plate YESDADDY, to no avail.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
