“Survivor” is coming back on February 12 for Season 40. SEASON FORTY?!?!?! That’s mind blowing! They’re calling it “Survivor: Winners at War” and they’re bringing back 20 previous winners who will all fight for the title of Sole Survivor. Because its such a milestone season, Jeff Probst announced they will offer the largest winning prize in the history of reality TV competitions — $2M!! They’re also bringing back a twist from Season 38 called Edge of Extinction, where contestants are vote out, but they’re not eliminated for good. They get moved to a separate island where they’ll compete for a chance to get back in the game.
SPOILER ALERT: The waiting is over! The winner has been crowned and we finally know the identities of the final three contestants on “The Masked Singer.” Coming in third was Flamingo, who we now know was Adrienne Bailon — former Cheetah Girl, former girlfriend of Rob Kardashian, and current member of “The Real.” Second place went to Rottweiler, aka Chris Daughtry. And the winner of Season 2 of “The Masked Singer”…………………Fox! And no, it wasn’t Jamie Foxx, it was Wayne Brady, who credits being on the show for helping him to find his joy again. And if you’re super upset that this crazy show has come to an end, you don’t have to wait too terribly long for Season 3. That kick off on Sunday, February 3 — right after the Super Bowl!
Tekashi 6ix9ine sang like a bird, snitching on errrrrbody he ran around with doing gang things, hoping he’d get his almost 47-year prison sentenced reduced to the time he’s already served. He went into court yesterday optimistic that he’d be home for Christmas, but the judge gave him two years instead. However, he is giving Tekashi credit for the 13 months he’s already served, which means he’ll be out in time for Thanksgiving next year. After that, Tekashi will have five years of supervised released, plus he’ll have to perform 300 hours of community service and pay a $35K fine. In a letter to the judge, Tekashi apologized, saying, “I now know that I am remorseful for what happened because I was blessed with the gift of an opportunity that most people dream of but I squandered it by getting involved with the wrong people and misrepresenting myself when I should have been true to myself and my fans. I’m sorry to the victims who were affected by my actions, to my fans who look up to me and were misled, to my family who depends on me and to this courtroom for this mess that I contributed to.”

Camila Cabello is apologizing as profusely as she possibly can for some old comments she made on her Tumblr account back in 2012 and 2013, when she was 15 and 16 years old. Somebody did some deep diving and found where Camila had re-blogged several racists posts, as well as a post she wrote herself in which she used the N-word. Other posts were mocking Asian and Mexican people. She even posted a joke about Chris Brown assaulting Rihanna. Camila’s Tumblr has been shut down and Camila couldn’t be sorrier. She released a statement saying, “When I was younger, I used language that I’m deeply ashamed of and will regret forever. I was uneducated and ignorant and once I became aware of the history and the weight and the true meaning behind this horrible and hurtful language, I was deeply embarrassed I ever used it. I apologized then and I apologize again now. I would never intentionally hurt anyone and I regret it from the bottom of my heart. As much as I wish I could, I can’t go back in time and change things I said in the past. But once you know better, you do better and that’s all I can do.”
Several celebrities have made cameos in the new “Star Wars” movies. Most of them play Stormtroopers, aliens, or background characters so you can’t see their faces. Prince William and Prince Harry, Daniel Craig, Justin Theroux, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Tom Hardy have all done it. So when the final chapter — “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” — hits theaters tomorrow, which celebrities get the honors of sneaky, secret cameos? Earlier this week, Mark Hamill — aka Luke Skywalker — posted pictures of the previous celebrity cameo honorees along with a picture of Harry Styles! He tweeted, “…Wonder who’ll be the #SecretStormtrooper in this one?….Still no singer, all clues point in one direction: #Stylestrooper.” Real subtle, Mark.
