Morgan Spurlock, who lived on McDonalds for a month, dies at 53

Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, an Oscar nominee whose most famous works skewered America's food industry and who notably ate only at McDonald’s for a month to illustrate the dangers of a fast-food diet, has died. He was 53.

Spurlock died Thursday in New York from complications of cancer, according to a statement issued Friday by his family.

“It was a sad day, as we said goodbye to my brother Morgan,” Craig Spurlock, who worked with him on several projects, said in the statement. “Morgan gave so much through his art, ideas, and generosity. The world has lost a true creative genius and a special man. I am so proud to have worked together with him.”

Spurlock made a splash in 2004 with his groundbreaking film “Super Size Me,” which was nominated for an Academy Award. The film chronicled the detrimental physical and psychological effects of Spurlock eating only McDonald’s food for 30 days. He gained about 25 pounds, saw a spike in his cholesterol and lost his sex drive.

“Everything’s bigger in America,” he said in the film. “We’ve got the biggest cars, the biggest houses, the biggest companies, the biggest food, and finally: the biggest people.”

In one scene, Spurlock showed kids a photo of George Washington and none recognized the Founding Father. But they all instantly knew the mascots for Wendy’s and McDonald’s.

The film grossed more than $22 million on a $65,000 budget and preceded the release of Eric Schlosser’s influential “Fast Food Nation,” which accused the industry of being bad for the environment and rife with labor issues.

50 Cent Docu about Diddy will go to Netflix

The disgusting video of an entitled, rage-filled Sean Combs beating Cassie was only the latest in the horrible saga of Diddy disaster. And one of the people who's been sounding the alarm about him for years is 50 Cent.

And for the last few months 50 has been talking about his coming documentary about Diddy and how it was gonna "Break records when this drops"... only problem? No one was entirely sure there was a documentary. Or were these just threats to make Diddy nervous. Well there's no question now.

Netflix has won the bid (after a bidder war, we're told) to show the film. It's not sure if it'll be a multi episode series or a one off film, but word it the docu will be ready to drop as soon as late summer.

Elvis home Graceland going to auction!

It's one of the most famous homes in all of the United States. Graceland is where Elvis lived, had his daughter, died. All of it. And it's been a busy museum ever since.

So folks were shocked to learn the company that owns the mansion is selling is at auction this Thusrday, May 23rd.

Now actress Riley Keough, the granddaughter of Elvis, is suing to stop the sale.

Riley's lawyers filed this month claim that a company planning to auction off Graceland is fraudulently claiming that her mother — Elvis’s daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, who died in 2023 — had borrowed money and put Graceland up as collateral. The papers say that the company, Naussany Investments & Private Lending LLC, “appears to be a false entity” and that the documents it presented about the loan were also fake.

She is asking that the court grant a restraining order against Naussany Investments & Private Lending LLC, “or any party acting in concert” with them “from conducting any non-judicial sale of the property.”

This is a mess. I hope Riley is correct and is able to save it. It's a Memphis institution.

Ben Affleck seen leaving home he’s staying in away from JLo

Credit to TMZ.com

There have been rumors gallor swirling about the inevitable demise of Ben and Jen's 2 year marriage. And I don't take delight in saying that. But it is what it is.

The pair haven't been seen in public in nearly 2 months, which is a big departure from the near daily PDA they would show for the majority of their relationship.

And now TMZ is reporting the photo above is Ben leaving a home he's been crashing at ALONE. Sans JLo. No wifey in sight.

In addition to that, JLo herself drew speculation when she "liked" a post about unhealthy relationships.

These two had a long relationship almost 25 years ago and found each other all this time later and I think I really thought it might last. But lord knows JLo has a reputation for being high key diva and Ben is forever struggling with depression and addiction. I imagine that's a powder keg of a relationship.

Only Fans model that shut down the Dublin portal getting threats

If you didn't know, Benediktas Gylys, a Lithuanian artist, created a sort of portal from New York City to Dublin. He did this via a live stream link in the center of times square and somewhere in Dublin Ireland.

And for a few days it was good. But how you expected New Yorkers and the rowdy Irish to keep themselves in check is crazy. And just a few days into the experiment the device was shut down. A woman from New Jersey had flashed her breasts.

That wasn't the only thing, of course. Dubliners were said to be showing pictures of 9/11 and other gross attention seeking pranks. But the breasts, as they ofter are, were the tipping point. And now Ava Louise, the only fans model, says she is getting death threats.

"The people all around the portal at the time had a great reaction and were very encouraging - full of laughter!" she explained.

'Now, people aren't too happy. I'm receiving thousands of death threats.

'I just wanted my boobs to be international! Honestly, boobs are harmless.'

The model and TikTok star continued: 'Being topless in NYC is legal and the shutdown wasn't entirely my responsibility.

'I'm sure the world has noted there were more heinous things displayed by other people in the portal.

'Plus, Elon Musk replied to a tweet about it - now he has seen my boobies!'

The portal was launched on May 8 as an invitation to meet people 'above borders and differences,' said Benediktas.

'The livestream provides a window between distant locations, allowing people to meet outside of their social circles and cultures, transcend geographical boundaries, and embrace the beauty of global interconnectedness.'

The Dublin portal is set to eventually be connected with other destinations, including Poland, Brazil and Lithuania.

Legally Blonde series coming to Amazon

Everyone's favorite legal eagle is getting a bit of a make over for streaming! At Tuesdays upfronts for Amazon MGM studios, Reese Witherspoon herself took the stage to make the announcement.

Currently titled 'Elle,' the show is a prequel that follows our blonde hero in high school.

The description says Elle “follows Elle Woods in high school as we learn about the life experiences that shaped her into the iconic young woman we came to know and love in the first ‘Legally Blonde’ film.”

“I truly couldn’t be more excited about this series! Fans will get to know how Elle Woods navigated her world as a teenager with her distinct personality and ingenuity, in ways that only our beloved Elle could do. What could be better than that?!” said Witherspoon in a statement. “I’m extremely grateful to the incredible teams at Prime Video and Hello Sunshine – along with our amazing writer Laura Kittrell – for making this dream of mine come true. ‘Legally Blonde’ is back!”

The only issue with a prequel set in high school is how quickly it will catch up to her college years where the film picks up. You sort of cut yourself short on run time. Still, it's very exciting!

Ellen Degeneres gets new Netflix stand up special


It's been a hot minute since Ellen Degeneres has made us laugh over our mid day dance break. Her eponymous show ended in 2022 after the unpleasantness of the pandemic made people feel she had lost touch with the people.

But her stand up career will go on, apparently. This will mark Degeneres’ second special for the platform, on the heels of 2018’s Relatable.

“There is nobody quite like Ellen,” stated Robbie Praw, VP of Stand-Up and Comedy Formats at Netflix. “She is a true legend and pioneer in so many ways. We can’t wait to bring fans another one of her hilarious comedy specials later this year.”

Stated Degeneres, “To answer the questions everyone is asking me – Yes, I’m going to talk about it. Yes this is my last special. Yes, Portia really is that pretty in real life.”

Matthew Perry’s home lists in Hollywood Hills

This is NOT the home that Matthew Perry died in. I want to be clear. It was the last home he bought tho. He bought it just a couple months before he died in Oct 2023 and lived out of both homes. This one in the Hollywood Hills and the one he died in in Pacific Palisades.

This home is a super modern and spans over 2,500 square feet and was likely going to be renovated by Perry at some point because like his good friend Jen Aniston, Perry took great pleasure in buying and renovating homes.

Asking: $5,195,000 4 beds, 3 bath, 2,793 sq ft Pool

Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘black book’ of contacts going to auction

This is way creepy. Jeffrey Epstein... the perv pedo who flew celebrities and dignitaries to his island of horrors kept a little black book of contacts that will soon be auctioned to whatever freak wants a momento of this kind.

The auctioneers, Alexander Historical Auctions, have announced there are previously unknown contacts among the book’s 400 entries — but it’s important to note that the book up for auction is not the same as the infamous 2004 book currently in the hands of the FBI.

According to the Daily Beast, which first broke the story, the second black book is believed to be from 1997 and was reportedly found on Fifth Avenue in New York City’s East Village by a female musician in the 1990s.

It will go up for sale May 15 and include a forensic examiner’s report verifying its authenticity. Bidders are being assured that their identities will be kept secret.

“There are no comparables for the sale of this kind of relic. But, based on my experience, if I’m pressed to offer a price I would think it would be US$100,000 to $200,000, and up,” Bill Panagopulos, owner of the auction house, told Daily Beast.

Shooting near Drakes Toronto mansion last night

I tried not to make that headline too click baity, but there are only a few details coming out and we're not sure if the shooting was related to Drakes house or not. Here's what we know.

Last night around 2am police were called to a shooting in the mega wealthy neighborhood where Drakes 50,000 square foot home is located.

When the police arrived they found a man wounded and a suspect had fled. Reports are that the mansion itself is taped off, which is what is leading people to suspect it's directly related to Drake.

Police haven't commented further on the case at this point.

However, a police source said early details from the initial call suggest the victim was a security guard at the home who appears to have been shot in a drive-by attack.

He suffered a gunshot wound to the upper chest and was unconscious when officers arrived, according to the initial report.

The victim was taken to hospital via emergency run, where he underwent surgery.

If we get more info we will surely update you.
