Christina Milian Provides All The Feels In Trailer For Netflix Romcom 'Falling Inn Love'

The romantic comedy will premiere Aug. 29

Netflix is keeping up their strong rollout of Romcoms with Falling Inn Love an artisanal love story of sorts starring Christina Milian.

Milian stars as San Francisco city girl (Gabriella Diaz) who finds her self at the bottom of her wine glass after her design firm folds. On a whim she finds herself entering a New Zealand countryside "Win an Inn" contest. It is just her luck when she is thousands of feet in the air and arriving in thigh-high boots and designer duds as the winner to The Bellbird Valley Farm neighborhood Inn.

She becomes seemingly disappointed that the advertised Inn has a deteriorating exterior, overgrown weeds, useless appliances, and a meddling goat that prances throughout the place. Trying to adjust to her new life, the Cali-girl is quickly introduced to a Kiwi heartthrob, contractor, and volunteer firefighter Jake Taylor (Adam Demos).

Eager to sell the property Diaz immediately teams with Taylor to renovate the space but once it is fixed and flipped,  she finds herself hesitant to leave the Inn she has taken pride in, her newfound beau, and the inviting community that stood by her side.

The Roger Kumble directed film is set to premiere on Netflix (Aug. 29) also staring the likes of Anna Jullienne, Claire Chitham, Blair Strang, Jonathan Martin, William Walker, Daniel Watterson, and Simone Walker.

The film continues their push in romcoms. Some notable Netflix gems in love include Someone Great (Gina Rogriguez, LaKeith Stanfield), To All The Boys I've Loved Before (Lana Condor, Noah Centineo, Janel Parrish) and the hilarious Always Be My Maybe with Ali Wong, Randall Park and Keanu Reeves.

Selena Mural To Be Placed In Late Singer's Texas Neighborhood

A new mural of Selena was unveiled in the late singer’s neighborhood of Molina in Corpus Christi, Texas, The Corpus Christi Caller Times reports. The artwork was made by New York-based artist San Singueza and covers an original mural painted by students of nearby West Oso High School in 1995.

The revamped mural features three different images of the late singer, each painted in watercolors with the phrase, “The goal isn’t to live forever … the goal is to create something that will,” alongside Selena’s signature. This project was reportedly financed by the singer's family.

The old painting, which featured a picture of the singer with the phrase, “Always In Our Hearts,” began to show signs of discoloration. Residents of the area pointed out that the 23-year-old portrait needed a makeover.

“Having to see it wear down after all the years,” said Eric Lee Tunchez, a resident who lives around the corner where Selena grew up. “It saddened me and made me want to do something about it.”

Mario Lopez Issues Apology For Remarks About Parenting Transgender Kids

Mario Lopez has apologized for his comments towards the parenting skills of transgender children, calling them ignorant and insensitive.

On Wednesday (July 31) the former Extra co-host released a statement to Variety and People, how he now has a deeper understanding of his comments. “The comments I made were ignorant and insensitive, and I now have a deeper understanding of how hurtful they were,” he said. “I have been and always will be an ardent supporter of the LGBTQ community, and I am going to use this opportunity to better educate myself. Moving forward I will be more informed and thoughtful.”

Lopez appeared on The Candace Owens Show where they talked about a so-called trend of celebrities allowing their children to "pick their gender." Both were against the idea of it with Lopez calling the line of parenting "dangerous" and "weird," and cited a three-year-old as an example.

“Look, I’m never one to tell anyone how to parent their kids, obviously, and I think if you come from a place of love, you really can’t go wrong,” he said. “But at the same time, my God, if you’re 3 years old and you’re saying you’re feeling a certain way, or you think you’re a boy or a girl or whatever the case may be, I just think it’s dangerous as a parent to make that determination then — ‘Okay, well then you’re going to be a boy or a girl,’ whatever the case may be. It’s sort of alarming and my gosh, I just think about the repercussions later on.”

Many have urged Lopez and many others to inquire education about transgender children as well as understanding the difference between sexuality and gender.

"Medical and psychological experts and parents of children who are transgender have long discredited the ideas that Mario Lopez shared last month,” GLAAD told PEOPLE in a statement. “The real ‘dangerous action’ is when someone with a public platform uses bad science to speak against a marginalized and vulnerable group of children. We spoke with Extra and it is clear that the showrunners do not support or share his view. They will address this issue on the show tonight. Lopez clearly needs a primer on trans issues. We reached out to his team to see if and how he will correct the record.”

Mario Lopez Met With Support From Fans For Deeming Parental Support Of Transgender Kids "Weird" And "Dangerous"

Mario Lopez has enticed debate about the parenting of transgender children but as quick as the backlash started, the Extra host has been met with support from fans and conservative figures.

Lopez's conversation with Candace Owens happened in June but recently resurfaced this week. The two talked about his devotion to family and hints towards his conversation identity. During their chat, Owens and Lopez talked about a purposed trend of celeb parents who allow children to "pick their gender."

"They say, 'Oh, I looked at my child and my child was swimming in a bathtub and looked up and said, 'Mommy, I'm a boy,'' and that's weird," Owens said during the interview, in reference to Charlize Theron's seven-year-old Jackson who does not identify as a boy.

Lopez questioned the notion of parents behavior towards gender identity with their children. "Look, I’m never one to tell anyone how to parent their kids, obviously, and I think if you come from a place of love, you really can’t go wrong," he said. “But at the same time, my God, if you’re 3-years-old and you’re saying you’re feeling a certain way, or you think you’re a boy or a girl or whatever the case may be, I just think it’s dangerous as a parent to make this determination then, well, OK, then you’re going to a boy or a girl, whatever the case may be … It’s sort of alarming and, my gosh, I just think about the repercussions later on.”

The backlash has been swift against Lopez's comments from Queer Eye's Karamo Brown to the Human Rights Campaign who also called the media personality's thoughts dangerous.

But on the other side of the spectrum, people have lent their support to the 45-year-old like comedian James Andre Jefferson Jr., political teen pundit CJ Pearson and fans who have flooded Lopez's social pages with support.

#MarioLopez said “3 Year old shouldn’t make major life decisions” and people are mad at him now but...🐸☕️ #JamesAndreJeffersonJr

I don’t even remember being 3 years old. Imagine believing that one has the mental capacity to ALTER their gender at that age.

There’s nothing “controversial” about the opinion Mario Lopez expressed.

Evidently it's now *scandalous* to say that a child probably shouldn't be making their own life-altering decisions at 3 years old. 🤦‍♂️ Mario Lopez and Candace Owens [email protected] @RealCandaceO pic.twitter.com/2Wdc79SrjW

All Mario Lopez said was 3 years old is too young to be making life changing decisions. But we live in an age where if a public figure offers an unpopular opinion on LGBTQ issues, they’re “cancelled.” 🤦🏽‍♂️ pic.twitter.com/q1vZitbCy9

Of our 5 kids, 2 are queer. They both came out in their early teens but we knew who they were way, way before then.

Parents can tell the different between a 3 year old who pretends to be another gender for fun and one who feels they are living in the wrong body. STFU Mario Lopez https://t.co/pKXketgy6P

Mario Lopez is not only correct but he said what he said politely. 3 year olds aren’t able to choose their gender. I have a 3 year old. She flip flops over being a unicorn, a UFC fighter or a princess still. Anyone shaming @MarioLopezExtra needs to join us in reality. pic.twitter.com/1dkdCFoi1v
