Zachary Levi hosts the MTV Movie & TV Awards… Jed Wyatt’s serious relationship… New Ed Sheeran album… Chrissy Teigen & John Legend’s argue… and Bella Thorne blasts Whoopi Goldberg’s response to nude
Why do they keep bothering with some of these award shows? Just have a banquet and call it a day. The MTV Movie & TV Awards hosted by “Shazam” star Zachary Levi were broadcast on TEN channels. They want to make sure that anybody who wants to see it has no excuse! As of right now, we only have the ratings from six of the channels — MTV, VH1, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, BET and CMT. 1.8 million people watched the awards on one of those, down 42 percent from those same channels last year. Only 434K watched on MTV proper. We’re still waiting to see how many people watched on MTV2, MTV Classic, BET Her and TV Land. That MAY add a couple more hundred to the total audience….The last time ratings were this low was back in 2015, when Amy Schumer hosted. But in her defense, the show was only broadcast on four channels. Meantime, Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler’s new movie “Murder Mystery” set a record for Netflix. In its first three days, 30.9 million accounts around the world watched, making it the biggest opening ever for one of its original movies.
On the very first episode of “The Bachelorette,” Hannah kicked out a guy for having a girlfriend he saw up until the day he left for the show. Now another woman is speaking out, saying frontrunner JED WYATT did the same thing! Like Jed, Haley Stevens is a musician in Nashville. Before she and Jed started dating, he applied to be on “The Bachelorette,” thinking it would be great for his struggling music career. Jed never really thought he’d make it on the show, but four months after Haley met him, he got the call. Haley said the two of them then flew off for a romantic trip to the Bahamas where they each said “I love you” for the first time. They even spent the night together before he left and he told her that their relationship would be even stronger when he returned. He just had a goal of making it to the top five. That’s it. Then he would come home to her. The last time she spoke to him was when he landed in LA and called to tell her he loved her. Then they took his phone. Haley was left searching spoiler accounts, trying to keep tabs on Jed’s relationship with Hannah. She even bought a new outfit to meet him at the airport when he came home. But she never heard from him. And then recently, Haley heard through the grapevine that Jed was back in Nashville. She finally ran into him at a music venue where she confronted him, but she said he was real awkward and distant. She said, “I asked him, ‘You didn’t think I deserved a phone call?’ And he said, ‘I didn’t know what to say.’” They never spoke about their relationship again. Haley says she doesn’t know if Jed is with Hannah or not. But she wants us to know that she doesn’t think he’s a terrible person. She just thinks it’s a terrible situation.
Ed Sheeran collaborated with 22 artists for his new album “No. 6 Collaborations Project,” which is out on July 12. He just released the track list and every song is a collaboration with at least one artist. He’s already released “I Don’t Care” with Justin Bieber and “Cross Me” with Chance the Rapper. But we can look forward to hearing “South of the Border” with Cardi B and Camilla Cabello, “Remember the Name” featuring Eminem and 50 Cent, “Blow” with Bruno Mars and Chris Stapleton and many, MANY more!
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are in France for the Cannes Lion Film Festival. During an interview, Chrissy admitted that the two of them had been arguing all day. She said, “We keep having the same fight over and over again where he doesn’t listen to something I said weeks ago and he pretends I never said it. Oh, now we have to pretend to be happy. I hate him today.” And we got a little peek into how that happens when Chrissy said she wasn’t sure if they were going to make it to the wedding of “Vanderpump Rules” stars Jax and Taylor next Saturday. John seemed confused about that and Chrissy said, “I asked you about this! Oh no…this is going to be a thing now. We’re going to fight about this later…..”
When a hacker threatened to release Bella Thorne’s nude photos, she decided to release them herself. It was her way of taking her power back. The ladies of “The View” discussed it yesterday, and Whoopi said Bella should’ve known better than to take naked photos in the first place. She said, “If you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are, you don’t take nude pictures of yourself. When they’re hacking you, they’re hacking all of your stuff. So whether it’s one picture or a million pictures, once you take that picture it goes into the Cloud and it’s available to any hacker who wants it. And if you don’t know that in 2019 that this is an issue … I’m sorry!” Bella came unglued and shared it on her Instagram stories. Through her sobs, Bella said, “…Me watching this interview made me feel really bad about myself and I hope you’re happy.” She added, “Shame on you, Whoopi. Shame on you for putting your public opinion just out there like that for every young girl to think that they’re disgusting for even taking a photo like that.” Then Bella said she was canceling her upcoming appearance on “The View” because she doesn’t “want to be beaten down by a bunch of older women” for her body and her sexuality.
