Rosalia – inspired by Spanish pop star Rosalia. INFO3. Archie – the son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. 4. All the Kardashian baby names. Dream, Saint, Reign, Tru, and Stormi have all shot up in popularity. Tru got more popular for boys, not girls.5. Kehlani – thanks to the singer of the same name.6. Banks – Hilary Duff chose it for her daughter. But it’s more popular for boys than girls.7. Onyx.  This one shot up after Iggy Azalea gave it to her son last year. But she might not have had anything to do with it. Gemstone names have been on the rise.8. Crew. It’s one of the fastest-rising names since it was given to the fifth child of Chip and Joanna Gaines from the show “Fixer Upper”.9. Since the deaths of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna, the names of all his daughters have risen in popularity. In addition to Gianna, Natalia, Bianka, and Capri, the name Bryant also shot up on the list of boy names. 

“Hocus Pocus” debuted in 1993 and it’s become a cult classic. And now, FINALLY, discussions have been had, negotiations have been done, dotted lines have been signed and “Hocus Pocus 2” is happening. Bette Midler posted yesterday, “Sistaaaahs! It’s been 300 years… but we’re BACK!”  Sarah Jessica Parker added, “Yep. I’m ready. To run. Amok, amok, amok, amok…???” Kathy Najimy posted, “The people have spoken: I smell children…again.” And all three ended with “#HocusPocus2 arrives Fall 2022 on @DisneyPlus.” All we know about the sequel is that the Sanderson sisters are summoned from their supernatural exile to once again torment those living in modern-day Salem, Massachusetts. 

Jennifer Lopez has obviously moved on, so why can’t Alex Rodriguez? Belinda Russell co-hosts a morning television show in Australia and this morning, her male co-host asked her, “An A-list star has slid into your direct messages on what… Instagram?” Belinda said.  ‘I woke up this morning, checking the socials and in my requests there was a message from Alex Rodriguez. As in A-Rod. As in J.Lo’s ex.’ Then she showed a screenshot of his DM which read, “Great feed!!!” Now, Belinda is also a well-known TikTok personality who happens to be happily married with three children. She doesn’t believe he was hitting on her AT ALL, but still….Later in the show, Belinda said A-Rod was probably going to unfollow her now because revealing he’d messaged her was so uncool.  

Olivia Rodrigo’s new album “Sour” just dropped and now Joshua Bassett is trending on Twitter. Olivia and Joshua play a couple on the Disney+ series “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” and, although they never confirmed it, it’s rumored they dated in real life. When Olivia released her first single “Drivers License” everyone blasted Joshua for breaking Olivia’s heart and leaving her for Sabrina Carpenter. But in another song off “Sour” called “Traitor,” Olivia sings, “Loved you at your worst but that didn’t matter / It took you two weeks to go off and date her / Guess you didn’t cheat, but you’re still a traitor.” So there! Joshua’s off the hook, right? Nope! Olivia’s fans are still mad. However, Hollywood Life noted that Olivia also dated her “Bizaardvark” co-star Ethan Wacker, so some of these songs could possibly be about him.  

Both Prince William and Prince Harry are speaking out against the BBC and Martin Bashir for his 1995 interview with their mother, Princess Diana. An investigation found that Martin created two false bank statements showing that the Royal Family was paying to have her followed — which was an absolute lie — fueling her paranoia and manipulating her into giving an interview that blew up her marriage and opened the floodgates to more sensational tabloid stories and frenzied photographers that ultimately led to her death in a car crash in August 1997. Prince Harry released statement saying, “Our mother lost her life because of this, and nothing has changed. And Prince William is asking that the interview never be aired again.
