“Birds of Prey” name change… The Rock’s daughter joins WWE… Lori Loughlin update… Amber Rose debuts face tattoo… and Ariana Grande kisses unknown dude at bar
Movie execs at Warner Bros. were scratching their heads after “Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)” tanked at the box office on its opening weekend. Critics loved it. It’s got 80% on Rotten Tomatoes and audiences have given it an 81% Cinemascore. Harley Quinn is a popular character. Lots of little girls — and full grown women — dressed up like her for Halloween, but because of that R-rating, that shut the younger crowd out. Was that it? Or is it that it didn’t really register with audiences that “Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)” is really all about Harley Quinn? Well! Since they can’t go back now and re-edit it to PG-13, they’ve decided to try something else. Heading into its second weekend of release, the movie has a brand new name — “Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey.”

Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo, will head to court this fall over their alleged involvement in Varsity Blues college admissions scandal. They’re accused of paying half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters into USC as rowing team recruits. But Lori and Mossimo say they’re innocent! They thought they were paying the money directly to the university and not greasing the palms of some shady middle man. But to make them look bad, prosecutors have released what they say is Olivia Jade’s rowing resume, which we now all know was fake. But hey…If you’re going to lie, lie BIG. Whoever typed up Olivia Jade’s resume put down that she earned 2 gold medals, 2 silvers and 2 bronzes as a coxswain for her high school team. (The coxswain is the one who steers and coaches the team as they do all the actual rowing.) And to take the fakery one step further, the resume ends by saying Olivia Jade “has been successful in both men’s and women’s boats.”
The bogus resume claims that Lori Loughlin’s daughter was an award-winning rowing athlete with gold-medal wins dating back to 2014 and that she is “highly talented and has been successful in both men’s and women’s boats” https://t.co/6eJ9d5f0xA— The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) February 10, 2020
Presley Gerber is the product of Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford, so it’s no surprise he’s one of the beautiful people. But the 20-year-old rising male model says he’s felt misunderstood his entire life, which is why he decided to get “misunderstood” tattooed on his face. Yep! Right there under his right eye, highlighting his chiseled cheekbone, “misunderstood” is stamped in permanent ink. Presley has gotten a lot of backlash for doing this, which bothered him so much, he decided to address it on Instagram Live. Presley sid, “If I thought this was going to ruin my face or I didn’t want this, I wouldn’t have done it. I think that’s a pretty obvious thing….Look at these (BLANKING) haters out here. (BLANK) you if you don’t like it.” And then his model girlfriend Cameron Rorrison chimed in, “His parents love it, by the way.” NO, THEY DON’T, CAMERON!
TMZ has video showing Ariana Grande kissing on somebody who definitely isn’t Mikey Foster from Social House. Ariana and Mikey have obviously been dating for the last several months. They just went on a date to Disneyland last week. But about 1am Sunday, Ariana and a small group of friends showed up at Bar Louis in Northridge, CA, which is on the outskirts of central LA. They all piled into a booth, ordered their beverages — Ariana was drinking water, by the way — and then she and whoever was sitting right next to her started making out! They only stayed for about 30 minutes, but now the challenge is on to find out who this guy is.
