Monica Lewinsky signs on as producer… Swifties are none too pleased… Bella Hadid & The Weeknd have split… Tyler C. was just fined… and Bachelor in Paradise’s Blake shares his hookup drama texts
FX has announced that the next season of Ryan Murphy’s “American Crime Story” will be about the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal that led to his impeachment. Ryan wanted to do this a few years ago, but said he wouldn’t do it unless Monica was involved. He ran into her a party back then and told her, “Nobody should tell your story but you, and it’s kind of gross if they do. If you want to produce it with me, I would love that, but YOU should be the producer and YOU should make all the (BLANKING) money.” And now with Monica on board, we’re getting “Impeachment: American Crime Story” next September — just in time for the final stretch before the next presidential election. Ryan’s favorite Sarah Paulson is back. She’s playing Linda Tripp. And Jonah Hill’s baby sister Beanie Feldstein is playing Monica. No word yet on who gets to play Bill and Hillary.
Charli XCX found out the hard way what happens when you criticize Taylor Swift and/or her fans, and she’s backpedaling, or as she would like to call it “clarifying.” When asked about her experience opening for Taylor on her Reputation Tour, Charli told Pitchfork, “I’m really grateful that she asked me on that tour. But as an artist, it kind of felt like I was getting up on stage and waving to 5-year-olds.” She went on to say that opening for Taylor really cemented her status as an underdog and made her realize she never wanted to open for anyone ever again. After Taylor’s “5-year-old” fans started blasted Charli on social media, Charlie defended herself on Twitter, saying, “…a few people on the internet have taken something I said out of context and I want to clarify there is absolutely no shade and only love here! … leading up to that tour I’d been playing a ton of 18+ club shows and so to be on stage in front of all ages was new to me and made me approach my performances with a whole new kind of energy … It’s always wonderful to watch other artists do their thing, own their stage and speak their language to their dedicated fan bases – and this was especially true for the reputation tour. Hope this gives clarity to what was a great interview!!lots of love”
Bella Hadid and The Weeknd have reportedly broken up for the second time. A source told E! News, “Bella and Abel have split. (The source called The Weeknd by his real name because that just proves the source REALLY knows him.) They are in different places right now, physically and mentally. Bella is prepping for her fashion week commitments and Abel (“See how much I know him!” – Source) is working on his music and his upcoming acting debut.” ACTING DEBUT?? Yes! Abel (I don’t know him, I’m just trying to act like I do) has a role in Adam Sandler’s movie “Uncut Gems,” which is scheduled to be released on Christmas Day.
Tyler Cameron no-showed at the Palm Beach County Courthouse yesterday because he’s too busy loving up on Gigi Hadid. Back in May, Tyler was involved in a car accident in Jupiter, Florida. He rear-ended a Ford F-150 King Ranch with his Ford Excursion. That caused the pickup to crash into third vehicle that was being driven by a pregnant women. Tyler got a ticket for careless driving and a $166 fine and was supposed to be in court yesterday to deal with it, but……..Gigi. So now Tyler has to pay an additional $60 fine and $106 in court fees. He also has to complete a mandatory eight-hour driving school course by November 4.
On Tuesday night’s “Bachelor in Paradise” Caelynn confronted Blake over sleeping with both her and Kristina within a 24-hour period, calling hooking up with Caelynn a mistake, and then ghosting her. Blake was crushed and confused. He had no recollection of things going down like she said and it looked like everyone in Paradise and at home watching on TV was turning on him. To defend himself, Blake took to his Instagram and posted screenshots of the text message exchanges he and Caelynn had on the night of their hookup. Basically, she texted Blake that she was coming over for sex and she wasn’t taking no for an answer. He even said, “We can cuddle but no sex lol.” She responded, “Yes sex. Only sex. No cuddling.” It went back and forth from there. Blake also posted text messages from the week before they were to start filming “Paradise,” with both of them debating whether to come clean about the hookup. After people started bashing Caelynn, Blake posted that he never wanted her to get attacked like that and asked people to “please stop attacking her” before deleting the text messages. Caelynn hasn’t commented, but her rumored boyfriend DEAN UNGLERT had something to say! He tweeted, “A ‘public figure’ sharing private text messages in an attempt to salvage whatever is left of their fragile ego….Calling it childish would be disrespectful to children everywhere.”
