DWTS update… Amber Rose bought a strip club… Elijah Wood is friends with Nick Viall… The debut of “Mama June: From Not to Hot”… and Beyonce has backed out of Coachella

“Dancing With the Stars” returns on March 20, and now is the time names of the celebrity competitors start trickling out. So far we know Mr. T and Olympic gymnast Simone Biles will be dancing in season 24. Apparently, they’ve been trying to get Mr. T to do this for years and Simone was just next on the list of Olympic gold medalists. Actually, they wanted her last season but she said she wanted to wait until she was done with the Tour of Gymnastics Champions.

Amber Rose is going with what she knows. She’s bought the Ace of Diamonds strip club in LA. Amber has an emotional connection with Ace of Diamonds. That’s where she and Wiz Khalifa celebrated their divorce.

This comes close to blowing my mind. Elijah Wood is friends with Nick Viall. I KNOW!!!!! And the thing is, Elijah was friends with Nick BEFORE he became the Bachelor. He told Jimmy Fallon, “He was just around and I would hang out with him and I kind of knew about his Bachelorette experiences and found it fascinating.” It sounds like he felt kinda bad for Nick, comparing being the Bachelor to being in jail….except “it’s worse than jail, except you got 20 girls.” But despite how emotionally immature every single viewer believes Nick is, Elijah says his search for love is real. Elijah explained, “Here’s the thing about Nick…I think a lot of people question whether he is real or if it’s really real him on the show, in the way that he’s presenting himself, and that is him.” (You’re not helping, Elijah!!) But he continued, “He’s a very genuine individual. He’s got a lot of integrity. I can unequivocally say that.” And Elijah admitted that he was rooting for Rachel the entire time, but we all know how that turned out because she’s the next Bachelorette.

Elijah Wood reveals his real-life friendship with The Bachelor Nick Viall.

There are two things I need to do today: Find the WE network and set my DVR because I’m not going to be home tonight. Yes, tonight is the debut of “Mama June: From Not to Hot.” And according to all the teases, Mama June is now a size FOUR. Back in 2015, after breaking up with Sugar Bear, Mama June had gastric sleeve surgery. She lost so much weight after that, she had to have skin removal surgery. And tonight, we get to see the final results! Sugar Bear, by the way, has rebounded from the breakup quite nicely. He’s a newlywed! He married Jennifer Lamb last month. Where’s her nickname?

Under doctor’s orders, Beyonce has backed out of headlining at this year’s Coachella festival. But to make up for it, she will headline at Coachella next year! Beyonce is pregnant with twins and even thought they haven’t revealed her due date, she’ll simply be too far along to perform at Coachella, which is happening the weekends of April 14th and 21st. No word on who will step in to take Beyonce’s place. Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar are still headlining their nights, as scheduled.
