#TopTrenders: When Keeping it Real Goes Wrong


A plot twist for the popular show ‘Stranger Things’. The creators of the Netflix show will have to defend the originality of the series in court. Filmmaker Charlie Kessler is suing Matt and Ross Duffer stating the brothers crafted the show around his idea. Kessler says he discussed the plot of his short film ‘Montauk’ with the Duffers during a film festival premiere party in 2014. ‘Montauk’ is about a violent event in a New England town surrounded by secret government projects and the paranormal. Kessler said he didn’t know about similarities between his own work and ‘Stranger things’ until the series premiered on Netflix in 2016. He is seeking monetary damages for breach of ‘implied contract’. 

The original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The 66-year-old actress starred as the title character on the T.V. show during its run from 1975 to 1979. Other career highlights include launching a professional singing career at age 14, becoming Miss World America in 1972, and serving as a spokesperson for Maybelline cosmetics. The star of the 2017 wonder woman movie, Gal Gadot, paid tribute to Carter on Twitter. 

A 21-year-old man was trying to create a viral video, but instead he became the star of his own rescue. The man tossed a go-pro camera into the air to capture the perfect shot. The camera landed on the roof of this building. When the man climbed up to get the camera, he got stuck. Firefighters used an elevated platform to get him down. 

It’s the end of an era for a popular home improvement show. HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” has come to an end. The show first aired in 2012 and featured couple Chip and Joanna Gaines. Joanna posted a picture of the couple in 2012 and now. Chip worked as a contractor and was popular for his crazy antics like eating a cockroach. Joanna focused on design and decorating and together they rehabbed homes in the Waco, Texas area. The couple will focus on their growing family and their business ventures including their new restaurant Magnolia Table.
