(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Monday’s midseason premiere of Season 4 of “9-1-1.”) Maddie (Jennifer Love Hewitt) and Chimney (Kenneth Choi) welcomed their baby girl into the world on the long-awaited return of “9-1-1” Season 4 Monday, an episode that ended with the joyous birth amid much chaos and potential tragedy. But since that last part is par for the course on “9-1-1,” let’s first dive into the delivery of that adorable little one, who, believe it or not, was played by a robot. “I was really nervous because I was like, wait, we’ve all had to come back to work, does this mean that newborn babies have to come back to work, too? As a real-life mom I was like, oh my God, please don’t let us have a real baby,” Hewitt told TheWrap. “So I thought it was really responsible and great of them to actually choose to do this robot animatronic baby. And now I secretly want to get #robotbaby trending. So it was good in that way, but it definitely has been weird, too. We’ve only been able to start using a real baby to kind of go back in and put those moments in in the last couple weeks. And so we’ve pretty much, predominantly only been working with the robot baby.” Also Read: '911: Lone Star' Flashback - Watch Grace and Judd Meet Over the Phone (Exclusive Video) She continued: “And it’s really, it’s a trip because they look so real and they are real. But then, like, all of a sudden the guy will forget to tell you that he’s, like, turning on the movements. And so you’ll be holding it and it will turn its head, but it doesn’t turn its head like a real baby. And then you’re like, ‘Ah!’ So I’ve had a couple of nightmares about a robot baby off camera. But, on camera, I love her to pieces.” OK, setting aside the fact it’s a robot baby, Maddie and Chimney’s on-screen daughter made her parents very happy with her arrival, even though she caused them a great deal of stress in the days before her birth while they attempted to come up with the perfect name. Ultimately, they didn’t choose one in time. At the last minute, Maddie chooses to name her Jee-Yun, after Chimney’s mother. Hewitt personally loved watching Maddie and Chimney agonize over the choice and seeing what Maddie came up with in the end was truly “perfect.” Also Read: '9-1-1': Maddie Goes Into Labor During Her Shift in First Look at Season 4's Spring Premiere (Video) “I’m glad that they kind of showed that struggle because, in my real life, I will say that when I was pregnant with my son and my daughter, I still stand by the fact that even with labor, the hardest part of having children is naming them, because it’s their name!” the “9-1-1” star said. “It’s who you send them out in the world to be. And it defines them so quickly. And people get really judgy about it. So you never wanna feel like, do my friends hate the baby name? So I love getting to play that kind of stressed-out feeling about the baby name because it is such a big deal. But I love that they chose to connect it to Chimney and to give him that moment. And I just loved the way Kenny played that moment. It made my heart go very full the way he did that. So I loved what they got to.” Now back to the chaos and potential tragedy of Monday’s “9-1-1,” which juxtaposed Chimney at Maddie’s side while she was in labor with his brother Albert (John Harlan Kim) almost bleeding out in the wreckage of the pileup the 118 spent the whole hour responding to. Luckily, he turned out OK, but Hewitt thinks the balance of life and almost-death for the episode was warranted.

And just like surviving this time. I think it’s real and I think it is what life is.” Maddie and Chimney are now settled at home with Jee-Yun, with the promise that visitors will be allowed soon, especially Buck (Oliver Stark), Uncle Buck. And we’re really hoping you got the show’s reference to the 1989 John Candy film, and so is Hewitt. “I’m so curious to see how many people actually get it… If they’ll just think that we’re crazy, you might not understand why we’re why we think that’s funny. But it will be dropped to the appropriate amount of time, I promise.” “9-1-1” airs Mondays at 8/7c on Fox.

As the Hollywood Foreign Press Association continues to face scrutiny for its lack of Black members, former president Phil Berk has come under fire over a leaked email sent to members with a post describing Black Lives Matter as a “hate movement.” Berk’s email, which was obtained by TheWrap and first reported on by the Los Angeles Times. appears to be a copy of an article on conservative website FrontPage Mag titled “BLM Goes Hollywood,” which criticized BLM founder Patrisse Cullors for buying a $1.4 million house in Topanga Canyon. “The house is down the road from one of the homes involved in the Manson murders which seems only appropriate since Manson wanted to start a race war. And Black Lives Matter is carrying on Manson’s work,” says the post. Also Read: HFPA Rejected Press Conferences for Black-Led Projects Like 'Bridgerton,' Insiders Say (Exclusive) HFPA board members in the email thread chastised Berk, who served eight terms as the organization’s president, for his post, with one member calling him a “thundering disgrace.” Gregory Goeckner, current COO and general counsel for HFPA, wrote to Berk that “it is not appropriate to circulate material such as this, which many members and staff find deeply offensive, to all members and staff as though it is a matter of Association business.” “I only intended to illustrate the hypocricy [sic] that engulfs us I forwarded it as a point of information I had no hidden agenda I now regret having sent it,” Berk responded. The HFPA’s scandal-ridden year began just before the Golden Globes when the Times published an expose outlining millions of dollars in payments sent to members as well as noting that none of the organization’s 87 members are Black despite the rise of the #OscarsSoWhite movement since 2015. TheWrap has since reported that the HFPA also denied requests to hold press conferences for “Bridgerton,” “Girls Trip,” and “Queen & Slim,” three projects featuring Black casts and directors that all failed to receive Golden Globe nominations. Also Read: Shonda Rhimes, Ava DuVernay Call Out Golden Globes Voters for 'Ignorance,' Self-Dealing In response to TheWrap’s report, filmmaker Ava DuVernay shared her own experience at an HFPA press conference for her Central Park Five miniseries “When They See Us,” which she said had minimal attendance from members. “Less than 20 of them showed up. Based on the quality of their questions, I jokingly asked ‘Have any of you seen the series?’ Crickets,” she tweeted. “More came in the room when the pix were to be taken, at which time two peddled their scripts.” The HFPA has pledged to have at least 13 Black members by the end of the year and to release further diversity reforms by May 6. Shaun Harper, professor of race, gender and LGBTQ issues at the USC Marshall School of Business has been hired as a diversity advisor while an outside law firm has been brought in to review the organization’s bylaws. “Since its inception, the HFPA has dedicated itself to bridging cultural connections and creating further understanding of different backgrounds through film and TV,” the HFPA said in a statement responding to Berk’s email. “The views expressed in the article circulated by Mr. Berk are those of the author of the article and do not — in any way shape or form – reflect the views and values of the HFPA. The HFPA condemns all forms of racism, discrimination and hate speech and finds such language and content unacceptable.” Read original story Leaked Email From Former HFPA President Calls Black Lives Matter a ‘Hate Movement’ At TheWrap
