Lady Gaga’s dog walker gets back to work… TV updates… “Olympic Dreams” with the Jonas Brothers… Matthew McConaughey’s future plans… and Ariana Grande is MARRIED to Dalton Gomez

Listen to “Showbiz – May 18, 2021” on Spreaker.


Less than 3 months ago, Lady Gaga’s dog walker took her three French Bulldogs for a late night stroll in West Hollywood when dognappers shot him and stole two of the dogs. Thankfully, Ryan Fischer survived, the stolen dogs were safely returned and the people responsible have all been caught. And now? Ryan is back to work walking Gaga’s babies again! Only this time, he will only be walking them in broad daylight.

FOX announced its fall schedule yesterday. Getting in all this whole NFT business, FOX announced will launch its own NFT company to go along with a new animated show called “Krapopolis.” From the man who created “Community” and “Rick and Morty,” “Krapopolis” is set in mythical, ancient Greece and is “centered on a flawed family of humans, gods and monsters that tries to run one of the world’s first cities without killing each other.” Now for the part that goes over my head….”Krapopolis” will be curated entirely on the blockchain and will have a dedicated marketplace that will “curate and sell digital goods, ranging from NFTs of one-of-a-kind character and background art and GIFs, as well as tokens that provide exclusive social experiences to engage and reward super fans.” I am OUT. But FOX is giving us some other stuff that’s easier to understand, like an unscripted series with Tom Brady. And after all the success of “The Masked Singer,” FOX gave us “The Masked Dancer” and now they’re adding a new series called “Alter Ego.” This will be a singing competition where singers perform as their dream avatar alter ego.

Nick Jonas looked perfectly fine sitting in his spinny judgy chair on “The Voice” last night, but he was actually in a great deal of pain. TMZ broke the story that Nick was injured on the set of some super secret project Saturday night that sent him to the hospital. Nick revealed that he’d broken his rib after falling off a bicycle and begged Blake Shelton not to make him laugh. Nick stopped short of revealing what he’d been filming, but NBC let the cat out of the bag. The Jonas Brothers are filming “Olympic Dreams Featuring Jonas Brothers” — that sounds weird, right? Why isn’t it featuring THE Jonas Brothers. Anyway, this is an hourlong special premiering July 21 — two days before the Opening Ceremony for the Tokyo Summer Games. Joe, Nick and Kevin are coached by some of America’s finest athletes and then compete against each other.

The Post Millennial is reporting that Matthew McConaughey is getting serious about running for governor of Texas. Their sources say Matthew has been quietly making phone calls, talking with an unnamed “deep-pocketed moderate Republican and energy CEO” and other prominent Texans who could potentially support his run against the incumbent Governor Greg Abbott in 2022.

Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez are married! Her rep told “People,” “It was tiny and intimate — less than 20 people. The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn’t be happier.” Ariana began dating real estate agent Dalton back in January 2020. When the pandemic hit, they quarantined together, falling deeply in love. She announced their engagement in December. The source told “People” that the wedding “was always in the cards for summertime,” but because both of their schedules are picking up, they decided to just go for it. They tied the knot in the backyard of their home in Montecito, surrounded by hundreds of white flowers. The source said, “It was beautiful but not over the top. Ari wanted it to be simplistic and tasteful. All they cared about was having family there and to be able to enjoy the special moment together.”
