“It” had a record breaking weekend at the box office. With $117 million, this is the highest opening ever for a movie released in September. And it only cost them $35 million to make this thing!! On top of that, the opening day gross alone — which was roughly $51 million — broke the records for R-rated movies and horror movies. Reese Witherspoon’s new romantic comedy “Home Again” opened in second with just $9 million.
Dr. Phil has a rare interview with Sinead O’Connor tomorrow. He told Jimmy Kimmel that Sinead reached out to him, saying she’s “fed up with being defined as the crazy person, the child abuse survivor.” Dr. Phil says she told him, “I want to destigmatize mental illness…I clearly have a problem. Too many musicians are dying. I want to use my life…be a teaching tool.”
RadarOnline.com is reporting that Jane Doe — who is already suing Usher for $20 million for giving her the gift that keeps on giving — has filed another lawsuit claiming that Usher is hiding his assets to avoid losing all his money when he loses to her in court. Meantime, Usher has filed a lawsuit to dismiss her case against him.
Sources claim that two days before ABC announced he was going to be the next Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr. dumped his girlfriend of just over a year. She’s a 26-year-old receptionist named Sydney Stempfley, who showed Arie and the rest of the world what he was giving up by responding to the breakup with a sexy bikini shot on her Instagram. Arie was from Emily Maynard’s season as the Bachelorette. She chose Jef Holm over Arie and ended up breaking up with him not too long after. After news of Arie broke, Jeff tweeted, “Oh the stories I could tell…” Jef also said, “I stopped being friends with him years ago because he’s disgusting.” But one woman who DOESN’T think Arie is disgusting is Emily Maynard! She told Us Weekly she “can’t think of a better person to be The Bachelor than Arie” and she’s “been hoping this day would come since Season 8 ended!” Emily said, “He’s a gentleman through and through and all the girls on his season are lucky to have him.”
