In movie and streaming news, the Angry Birds Movie 3 is happening, with Josh Gad and Jason Sudeikis returning as Red and Chuck. That’s all we know so far, but it’s likely that Peter Dinklage’s Mighty Eagle, Danny McBride’s Bomb, and Bill Hader’s Leonard will be back, as well. Variety is reporting that Palm Royale has been renewed for a second season at Apple TV+. In the series, Kristen Wiig stars as Maxine Simmons, who is working hard to become part of the 1969 Palm Beach High Society scene. The series also stars a number of A-listers including the great Carol Burnett, Ricky Martin, Laura Dern, Bruce Dern, Allison Janney, Mindy Cohn, and more. And Euphoria fans will be excited to know that conversations are being held for Season 3. Chairman and CEO of HBO and Max Content Casey Bloys told Variety that show creator and writer Sam Levinson doesn’t want the show to be set in a high school anymore, which would appear to confirm speculation about a possible time jump. And he reassured fans that the main cast, including Zendaya, Jacob Elordi, Sydney Sweeney, and Hunter Schafer, will all be back.

Royal author Tom Quinn gets all the inside scoop, and he told the Mirror that Prince Harry’s “honey moon period where everything in the States is new and exciting is coming to an end.” Tom says, “Harry is looking back at the past through rose-tinted spectacles,” and now wants to find a permanent home in the UK. Tom says Harry misses his army and college friends, who reportedly haven’t visited him in California because they don’t like Meghan Markle!

Flavor Flav single-handedly tried to save Red Lobster from bankruptcy by going to his local franchise and ordering one of everything on the menu. Red Lobster loves his passion, so now they’ve teamed up with Mr. Flav to promote the kickoff of CRABFEST! In the ad, Flav says, “Yeah, Boyeeeee! When the internet said Red Lobster is going away, boy Flavor Flav said, ’Not today!’ Crabfest is here, boyee, and they got two flavors – just like me, Flavor Flav!” Red Lobster released a statement saying, “We love seeing our fans show up and rally for us, so when Flavor Flav reached out, we answered the call and invited him to join us in reminding fans we’re here to stay.”

Matty Healy may be off the market. He’s been dating influencer Gabbriette Bechtel since September, but yesterday she posted a photo on her Instagram Story showing off a massive black emerald-cut stone surrounded by diamonds, captioning it “Marrying the 1975 is very brat @trumanblack.” Matty reshared it. Gabbriette is featured in the music video for Charli XCX’s 360, which is on her new Brat album — thus explains the “very brat” reference. We’re not sure if the engagement is legit. Page Six reached out for comment but hasn’t heard back.

In celebrity break up AND make up news — golfer Rory McIlroy has called off his divorce of his wife of 7 years, Erica Stoll. It was rumored that Rory had started seeing CBS Sports reporter Amanda Balionis, who is married to football coach Bryn Renner. But when rumors about Rory started, Amanda took off her wedding ring. But whatever problems Rory and Erica had seemed to have been worked out. No word about Amanda and Bryn. And by the way….did you know that Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin broke up? Neither did we! But sources told People that after their secret split, Chris and Dakota are back together and stronger than ever. But in even more shocking news, Billy Ray Cyrus has filed for divorce from his wife of 7 months, Firerose, but he’s hoping he can get the marriage annulled. Billy Ray filed last month, listing their date of separation as May 22. Billy Ray claimed both irreconcilable differences and inappropriate marital conduct — !!! — but he’s also requesting an annulment on the grounds that the marriage was entered into fraudulently. If he can have the marriage annulled, it’s like it never happened, meaning Billy Ray would be off the hook for any spousal support.
