Here Are The Names Of The New ‘Ghostbusters’


Are we all excited for the all-female Ghostbusters reboot? I have mixed feelings, really. I love the likes of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon, and I think Paul Feig has made some pretty awesome movies, but I was never a fan of the original movie and wish Hollywood would get back to developing original scripts. See what I mean? Either way, I’ll probably end up seeing it because it’s going to be a Big Thing, I might as well get on board and get excited. Especially since we’re learning more and more about the project as the days go by. We now know the character names, which is something!

Kristen Wigg will be playing Erin Gilbert and Melissa McCarthy will be playing Abby Yates. Kate McKinnon is playing Jillian Holtzmann, while Leslie Jones is Patty Tolan.

What do you think – looking forward to it?

Tom Selleck Accused Of Stealing Trucks Full Of Water For His Avocado Ranch

tom selleck

Haven’t heard anything from Tom Selleck in a while, have we? Well, unfortunately this news isn’t good news – more like news of him being an asshole. The water situation in California isn’t great right now, so people who live in the state have been urged to cut down on their consumption for the greater good. One person who hasn’t heeded that advice is Tom, who is accused of stealing truckloads worth of water for his avocado ranch!

The Blue Bloods star has been accused by the Calleguas Municipal Water District of stealing water from a hydrant in Thousand Oaks, Calif., to keep his 60-acre ranch in Westlake Village alive amid California’s drought.

According to a complaint filed by the Ventura County water district, the Magnum P.I. alum allegedly trucked water from the hydrant to his ranch, where he grows avocados, more than a dozen times since 2013. The Los Angeles Times reports that Selleck and his wife, who have lived on the ranch for 30 years, are prohibited from using the hydrant’s water because their home is located in the Hidden Valley Municipal Water District.

Selleck, 70, was reportedly ordered to stop trucking water in November 2013, but investigators report they’ve spotted a white truck filling up and trucking water to his ranch at least four times in March 2015.

The county is seeking $22,000 from Selleck to pay for the private investigator they hired, and a court order which would keep Selleck from trucking water from the Calleguas district.

RUDE! Does he really love avocados that much? I love how entitled celebrities feel they are. “I’m rich, who gives a shit about the world around me!” GTFO, Tom Selleck.

‘Big Brother’ Has A Transgender Houseguest This Year

audrey middleton

Big Brother is an absolute cesspool of the worst trash America can produce, and I haven’t watched it in several seasons, ever since I stopped having to cover it for another job. They bring all the racists, bigots, homophobes and every other awful type of person on national TV and encourage them to be horrible for the sake of ratings and it’s all really messed up. Well, now CBS is trying to turn things around, by capitalizing on Caitlyn Jenner‘s recent reveal and putting a transgender contestant in the Big Brother house.

From TMZ:

MZ has learned Audrey will become the first transgender on the U.S. version of the show, and she plans to use the program as a showcase … similar to what Caitlyn Jenner has been doing.

Audrey grew up in a small Georgia town as a boy, and life was far from easy. We’re told when she transitioned several years ago, her family had a hard time accepting it, but they’re now fully supportive and on board.

The 25-year-old was inspired by Caitlyn Jenner’s story, but she’s also just a big fan of “Big Brother.”

It’s a dicey move for producers, given the show has had its share of racist and homophobic houseguests. The show runs a livestream 24/7 and things happen. But we’re told it will all become a teaching moment and Audrey is pumped.

To be honest, I think it’s great that there’s representation for the transgender community on TV, I just don’t necessarily know that Big Brother is the best place. Then again, minority groups have to deal with prejudice on a daily basis in real life, and if Audrey thinks she can take it, then that’s amazing and she should be applauded.

Bobby Flay’s Cheating Ways Caught Up With Him On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

bobby flay

They say revenge is a dish best served at a public unveiling of your star on the Hollywood walk of fame, and that’s exactly what Bobby Flay got yesterday. The sun was shining and many were gathered to see the ceremony… and then a banner appeared overhead, flying from the back of a plane. That message said “CHEATER” plain as day, and it continued to fly back and forth until Flay’s ceremony concluded.

We can all safely assume this was Stephanie March‘s doing – or at least someone who knows and cares about her. Flay is pretty well known to have cheated on her repeatedly not only with his assistant, but with Mad Men actress January Jones. It seems he has a type.

Anyway, I love this story so much. Please let’s continue to humiliate Bobby Flay.

Is Lindsay Lohan Going To Jail? Like, For Real This Time?

lindsay lohan

Remember when Lindsay Lohan tried to bullshit a judge by claiming that she did all of her court-ordered community service at the very last second by doing things like greeting fans after her shitty play in London’s West End? Most people with half a brain were all like, “Huh?” Thankfully, the judge ordered her to redo 125 of those hours, and as of today, she’s only done 10 of those hours. That means she’s got 115 hours of community service left to do… by the deadline of May 28. LOL!

From The AP:

Judge Mark Young said Thursday he was concerned the actress had completed fewer than 10 hours of service over three years.

Lohan is on probation for a 2012 reckless driving case filed after she crashed her sports car in Santa Monica on her way to a film shoot.

Lohan’s lawyer Shawn Holley says the “Mean Girls” star will move from London to complete about 115 remaining hours of service working with kids in New York.

Santa Monica city prosecutor Melanie Skehar was skeptical Lohan could pull off the feat by May 28.

Skehar says her office will be seeking jail time if Lohan fails.

Lohan was not required to attend Thursday’s hearing.

There are literally a little more than 2 weeks left before the deadline, which means that Lindsay would literally have to do more than 40 hours a week if she wants a shot in hell in getting it done. Will she? Of course not. Will she actually go to jail? Doubtful.

But listen to this! Apparently even the 10 hours Lindsay did were bullshit, according to TMZ:

As we reported, Lindsay has completed less than 10 of her 125 community service hours, and now we found out even the 10 hours are suspect.

We looked over some court docs, Lindsay got credit for organizing and posting pics on the Facebook page of the London-based community service org. Here’s the problem … a staff member gave Lindsay a memory stick, which allowed her to do the work in the comfort of her apartment.

It’s unclear whether Lindsay really posted the pics or whether it was just left to her assistant, but when the head honcho of the community service place found out Lindsay worked from home, she wrote an apology for the screw up to the judge.

How is this a real thing? What the hell kinda bullshit staff member gives someone doing COMMUNITY SERVICE the availability to do work UNSUPERVISED at home, meaning she can easily pass the task off and not do it at all, which is clearly what happened? Make this girl clean toilets or some shit, for God’s sake.

Adam Levine Got Sugar-Bombed :(

I know this story is from early yesterday, but it’s good enough to still get plenty of mileage today, too. Adam Levine, he of Maroon 5 fame, was headed to Jimmy Kimmel‘s Hollywood studio this week when someone sugar bombed him on his way in.

Adam was busy greeting fans at the time the dude struck, and it’s unclear what is motive was. Maybe he was being topical, given the band’s latest single? Security took him away soon after, but Adam looked none too pleased with the “attack”. Ah, well. He lived!

Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin Are “Happier Than Ever”

jennifer lawrence chris martin

To be honest, I’m not really sure what to make of claims that Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin are “happier than ever”, considering the last thing we heard is that they broke up weeks after getting together. I mean, sure, they’d had dinner together since, but there doesn’t seem to be much of an actual romance there… OR IS THERE?

Since the Hunger Games star returned to Los Angeles from Massachusetts after two months of shooting the upcoming biopic Joy, she and the Coldplay rocker have been “happier than ever,” a source close to Lawrence tells PEOPLE in the magazine’s new issue. “They have been spending a lot of time together.” 

Aside from getting together for “quality time,” the low-key couple – who were last spotted publicly in New York City over Easter weekend – have also spent time with their pals. “He’s made an effort to get to know her friends,” says the source. 

The singer, who finalized his divorce from ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, 42, last month, “is romantic and thoughtful,” says the source. “He always makes Jen feel beautiful.” 

Frankly, I’ve always been a fan of this coupling, but if there is indeed a relationship going on there, I don’t think it’s a very serious one, nor is it one that’s going to last for very long. Especially considering that Gwyneth is keeping a vice grip on the situation. Obviously they have kids together and will always co-parent, but for some reason, I feel like JLaw isn’t quite refined enough to be around Apple and Moses for Gwyn’s taste. Maybe I’m wrong, and I HOPE I AM, but I’d say they’ll be parting ways again soon.
