DWTS celebrity dancers… Tyga’s newest lawsuit… Highest paid actresses in the world… Fuller House is coming back… and Adele accepts invite to a fan’s wedding!
The full cast of celebrity dancers on Dancing With the Stars won’t be announced until August 30, but this is when random names start to be leaked. And congratulations to Amber Rose for being the first name chosen to be leaked. Earlier this month, a source told Entertainment Tonight that Olympic gymnast Simone Biles was one of the producers’ top choices for this season, but she’s under contract to do the Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions. Simone was asked about it and she said she’d loved it if they would consider her next time around.
Tyga is being forced to pay yet another landlord for a home he rented to run his side business, Egypt Last Kings Clothing. Apparently, Tyga failed to keep up with the rent and then just abandoned the place last year. When he moved out, Tyga reportedly left the place in “gross disrepair” with “utility bills unpaid and hazardous environmental waste that required professional clean-up.” A judge says Tyga will have to cut a check for just over $186K. But $131K of that is for attorney’s fees!
Forbes is out with their annual list of the highest paid actresses in the world, and for the second straight year, Jennifer Lawrence is sitting on top. She took in $46 million over the past 12 months. That’s a little down from last year’s $52 million, but still enough for first place. Coming in second is Melissa McCarthy with $33 million. Third is Scarlett Johansson with $25 million. Jennifer Aniston earned $21 million for fourth place and rounding out the top five is this Chinese actress named Fan Bingbing. She’s known for her foreign films but she also had a role in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” She earned $17 million over the past year.
Fuller House is coming back for its second season on Netflix, and E! News has learned that the show is recasting two characters from DJ’s past who will resurface in the season finale, which will be about DJ and Kimmy’s class reunion. Remember that rich guy DJ dated, Nelson Burkhard? And Kathy Santoni, the mean girl in DJ and Kimmy’s class who had a huge growth spurt over summer and showed up for junior high with big boobies? Both of the characters are back, but they’re hiring new actors to play them, which isn’t nearly as fun as using the original ones…….We also found out that Alan Thicke — the dad from Growing Pains — will have a cameo in season two of Fuller House. He’ll go on a date with one of DJ’s friends. And New Kids on the Block will appear in an upcoming episode, too!
Let this be a lesson to you: When you go to a concert, dance like nobody’s watching. Because you know who’s watching? Adele is watching. She was performing at the Staples Center in LA and she was noticed these guys dancing their butts off to her song “Rumor Has It.” After she hit that last note, Adele said, “I’ve spotted two people I would like to meet,” and asked for them both to come up and join her on stage. So Ryan Solonen and Vince Rossi get up there and Adele asked them where they were from. Vince said Chicago, but when Ryan said Montana, Adele admitted she didn’t know where that was. Ryan said, “Do you know where Washington is? It is right next door.” And Adele said, “OK, I’m going to go!” Ryan said he and Vince were getting married there next September and Adele said, “Oh, I’m free.” Vince asked her if she’d like to come to the wedding and she said she would love to! Now the guys are networking through their industry contacts to try to get a wedding invitation to Adele and make this happen!
