House of the Dragon update… Is Wendy Williams wheelchair-bound?… Alec Baldwin’s interview…Britney Spears’ 40th birthday… and Did Adam Levine get a face tattoo?Listen to “Showbiz – Dec 2, 2021” on Spreaker.
I have yet to find a “Game of Thrones” fan who claims to have loved the final season. Even though it’s still one of the most popular show in history, everyone pretty much hated the last season. When it ended, HBO started developing at least five spinoffs, and “House of the Dragon” is actually set to air next summer. In a new book about HBO, one executive talks about how much money they spent on the spinoffs, one of which won’t even see the light of day. The executive said HBO spent over $30M to make a pilot episode of a show starring Naomi Watts, but it wasn’t working so they pulled the plug. By the way, if you are a huge GOT fan, starting in February, you can take a tour of the set they used in Northern Ireland. This is the first time it’s ever been open to the public.
Dreams didn’t make us kings. Dragons did.

The Shade Room posted a video of Wendy Williams leaving a wellness center in Miami. She’s wearing a Versace robe but walking barefoot as she heads to her car holding on to the arm of her driver. The Shade Room captioned the video, “There have been recent reports alleging that Wendy is confined to a wheelchair and showing early signs of dementia–rumors her brother Tommy said are all cap….She was silent when initially asked if she’s sad about her talk show being cancelled, however, she also said there’s ‘lots more Wendy stuff’ coming our way. Though the Wendy show has not been officially cancelled, fans are speculating that Sherri Shepherd will be the one to fill Wendy’s purple chair soon. We’ll keep y’all posted on that tea if it’s Lipton.”
Williams has been reportedly battling health issues as rumors about her suffering from dementia have surfaced. Shepherd is thrilled by the opportunity.https://t.co/0E7ZvSH3Cp— HotNewHipHop (@HotNewHipHop) November 24, 2021
Alec Baldwin sat down with George Stephanopoulos for an interview that airs tonight on ABC. Despite EVERYTHING that we’ve heard about that horrible day on the set of the movie “Rust,” Alec says he did NOT pull the trigger of the gun that took the life of his cinematographer. Alec said, “I didn’t pull the trigger. I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them. Never.” George asked him how a live round ended up on the set, and he said, “I have no idea. Someone put a live bullet in a gun, a bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be on the property.” The shooting is still under investigation and authorities say it’s still too soon to determine whether to file criminal charges.
EXCLUSIVE: “The trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger,” Alec Baldwin tells @GStephanopoulos in first interview since fatal shooting on set of “Rust.”
Watch TOMORROW at 8pm ET on @ABC and stream later on @Hulu. https://t.co/u7L88vylra pic.twitter.com/bJsssJoAJq— ABC News (@ABC) December 1, 2021
We don’t know where she’s going, but she’s getting the heck outta here! Britney Spears and her fiancé, Sam Asghari, boarded a private jet yesterday and took off for parts unknown at this point to celebrate her 40th birthday today. Britney was feeling super cute in her short shorts and high-heeled red boots, so she posted lots of shots of her and Sam standing in the plane’s doorway. She captioned them, “Oh the precious joy today !!! Me and my fiancé are so excited to be going away …. as you can see I’m not 800 pounds like the paps have me in pics 😂📷 … I’ve been working out and it’s real … whatever 🤷🏼♀️💅🏼 !!!! God thank you for being able to go out of the country !!!! I am blessed !!!!” Britney was referring to the paparazzi photos TMZ posted of her coming out of a gas station bathroom, which she obviously believes were modified to make her look bigger. Sam posted a couple of the same jet photos and captioned his, “I call you Lioness because I admire your relentless strength, I’m inspired by your beautiful heart, I celebrate your smile that lights up my world ❤️ Everyday is your birthday my queen 👑 Happy 1st birthday to my wife 🥳 #dec2nd @britneyspears.” Sam then commented on his own post, “I also been calling her wife since day 1.”
It used to be taboo to get a tattoo you can’t cover up because it could affect your ability to get a good job. But now that some of the biggest celebrities in the world are getting face tattoos, it’s becoming more and more mainstream and acceptable. And yesterday Behati Prinsloo posted an Instagram Story of her husband Adam Levine’s new face tattoo — a black, long-stemmed rose on his left temple. But before anyone decides to get a face tattoo just like Adam Levine, slow your roll! It was an Instagram filter. Adam posted his own IG story and said, “This message is for my mother. I do not have a tattoo on my face. ‘Cuz those who know me know that I’m too vain — I’m too (BLANKING) vain — to get a tattoo on my face. I’ll tattoo the rest of this, but no, the face has gotta stay the same.”
