When actress Meagan Good first got together with her now-husband, preacher and former Sony Pictures executive DeVon Franklin, the two of them were on the same page regarding sex before marriage: It wasn’t going to happen.


Though they first met in 2006, the couple didn’t begin dating until about five years ago. Up until their marriage in 2012, Meagan and DeVon chose to remain abstinent ― a decision they have discussed openly in interviews and in their book, The Wait.Sitting down with Oprah this weekend for “SuperSoul Sunday,” Meagan opens up about what she and DeVon learned in their chaste courtship.


“What we learned in the process was, because we weren’t being intimate in that way, we were able to really see each other for who we are,” she says. “We were able to really spend our time getting connected emotionally, spiritually. Being able to assess, ‘Can I spend a lifetime with you?’”


Since the frequency of sex fluctuates in a marriage, Meagan emphasizes the importance of knowing whether or not the non-sexual elements of a strong relationship are there to sustain it in the long run. “If the sex goes up and down at certain times in our marriage, do I love you enough, do I respect you enough, do we want the same things out of life, can we really be joined that way?” she poses.


It’s a lesson Meagan says she’s learned the hard way, before she made the decision to be abstinent.


“Most of the relationships I went into, because it started off sexually, I didn’t have the clarity to the discernment to see who the person was,” she says.


Without this clarity, the physical aspects of the relationship seemed to outweigh the others.


“You become physically dependent upon that person,” she says. “You make excuses. You’re OK with stuff you wouldn’t be OK with long-term.”


Judgment can become so clouded, Meagan adds, that a couple can end up staying in a relationship for quite a while before figuring out that it’s not meant to be.


“I feel like a lot of times relationships last two to four years, it’s because it’s taken us that amount of time to figure out that we may not even like this person at all as a human being!” she says. “Or we may, but they may just not be right for us.”


Meagan and DeVon’s full conversation with Oprah airs on “SuperSoul Sunday” this weekend, Aug. 28, at 11 a.m. ET on OWN. You will also be able to watch the full episode online for a limited time through SuperSoul.tv.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Is Officially The World’s Highest Paid Actor

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson topped a Forbes magazine list of the world’s highest paid actors on Thursday with an estimated 2016 payday of $64.5 million.


Johnson, 44, knocked Robert Downey Jr. off the top spot and more than doubled his 2015 earnings, largely thanks to his action comedy “Central Intelligence.” Johnson, known as “The Rock” during his wrestling career, also collected advance fees from the eighth installment of the popular “Fast and Furious” racing movie franchise.


The Forbes annual list again highlighted the pay gap between men and women in Hollywood. Earlier this week the magazine named “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence the world’s highest paid actress for a second straight year, with an estimated 2016 take of $46 million.


Forbes said 18 actors banked more than $20 million in its June 2015-June 2016 scoring period, compared with four actresses.


Jackie Chan, who has not had a big U.S. box office hit for years but is a prolific actor and producer in the burgeoning Chinese entertainment market, was second on the list with $61 million. Matt Damon came in third with $55 million, largely due to the success of his 2015 space film “The Martian.”


“Iron Man” Downey fell from the top spot, despite reprising his comic book hero role in “Captain America: Civil War.” He ranked eighth, tied with Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan, with $33 million.


Harrison Ford crept onto the list for the first time since 2009 thanks to his return as Han Solo in the blockbuster new “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” movie and video game. Ford, who also is to reprise his role as adventurer Indiana Jones in 2019, ranked 20th with earnings of about $15 million.


Forbes estimates earnings, before taxes and management fees, from movies, TV and commercial endorsements.

Lifetime Greenlights Unauthorized Biopic Of Pop Princess Britney Spears

Britney Spears is getting the Lifetime biopic treatment, but she doesn’t consider herself lucky.








The network announced Wednesday that it’s turning Spears’ life into a made-for-TV movie,and as with other Lifetime productions, it was unauthorized. (”Whitney,” anyone?)


A rep for Spears told Entertainment Weekly the singer won’t be involved“in any way, shape or form … nor does it have her blessing.”


The project, currently titled “Britney,” will reportedly outline the pop princess’ life growing up in Louisiana, her rise to mega-stardom in the late ‘90s, and then the late 2000s, which proved to be a turbulent time for the performer.


Natasha Bassett, who starred in “Hail, Caesar!” is set to play the pop princess, according to EW, with Leslie Libman (”Manson’s Lost Girls”) directing. The screenplay will be written by Anne-Marie Hess and Asylum Entertainment will produce.


Production on the project will begin in September in Vancouver with a debut set for sometime in 2017.

If you’re a fan of “Stranger Things,” then you know mornings are for coffee and contemplation.

And nothing about the series has caused more contemplation than a theory popularized byUproxx that saysSteve Harrington, Nancy’s boo, is possibly the father of Jean-Ralphio from “Parks and Recreation.”


Just look at the evidence! They look like each other, and ... well ... that’s all the evidence you need because Ben Schwartz, the actor who plays Jean-Ralphio, just confirmed it.


In a video posted by “The Late Late Show,” Schwartz not only supports S + N = J-R (Steve + Nancy = Jean-Ralphio), but he even adds to the theory. The actor reveals Jean-Ralphio may even have experience in the Upside Down, and that final Eggo twist is a connection as well.





Look, nobody wanted Nancy to end up with Steve in the show. But if those two being apart would’ve deprived the world of Jean-Ralphio, well, nothing is more upside down than that.





”The Late Late Show with James Corden” airs weeknights at 12:37 a.m. on CBS.

The Olympic swimmer, whose embellished story about being pulled over in a cab and robbed at gunpoint unraveled during the Rio Games, will joinABC’s “Dancing With The Stars”next season, Deadline.com reported.The deal “was apparently in the works” before Lochte’s troubles.


Some media outlets said that Lochte’s deal was still “in talks,” but his casting was confirmed by USA Today.


The official casting announcement will reportedly air next week on “Good Morning America.”


The next cycle of the show, which premieres on Sept. 12, may also include other Olympic athletes, US Weekly wrote.
