Box office weekend news… Joe and Teresa Giudice were sentenced to prison… Mariah Carey kicked off tour… Katy Perry makes a pass at Oklahoma quarterback… and Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are expecting
Ben Affleck’s “Gone Girl” was number one at the box office this weekend with $38 million. Nipping at its heels was the horror movie, “Annabelle” with $37.2 million and a second place finish. Last weekend’s number one movie, “The Equalizer,” dropped to third with $19 million. Fourth and fifth place went to “The Maze Runner” and “The Boxtrolls,” which both earned right about $12 million. But the big disappointment of the weekend was “Left Behind.” Nicolas Cage took over for Kirk Cameron in this movie about the rapture. Audiences weren’t feeling it. The movie debuted in sixth place with only $6 million.
Last Thursday, Joe and Teresa Giudice were sentenced to 41 months and 15 months of prison, respectively, for crimes of fraud. On Friday the couple sat down with Andy Cohen to film a very special “Watch What Happens Live” that will air tonight. From what we hear, taping was emotional but things went smoothly. The same can’t be said for Sunday’s filming of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion special. Sources say Teresa showed up four hours late for filming and then kept asking for breaks because she was “going through a lot.” The season finale airs next Sunday and the reunion special will air the following week.
Mariah Carey kicked off her “Elusive Chanteuse World Tour” in Tokyo this weekend, and she didn’t exactly impress the sold-out crowd. Fans were posting videos of Mariah’s performance and it seems that she was having trouble hitting some of the high notes and staying on key. At one point, she just stopped singing and started rapping the lyrics. Seriously? Social media was blowing up with Mariah hate: “She is duuuun.” “She needs Jesus.” And “No no no!!!!!! Why Mariah why????”
Katy Perry has her cougar claws out! She is making no secret of the fact that she has a crush on Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight. Katy was a guest on “College GameDay” on ESPN and was asked to predict Saturday’s winners. When it came to the the OU-TCU matchup, she said, “I’m picking this one based on looks. Trevor Knight, do you hear me?” Katy picked the wrong winner. The 25th-ranked Horned Frogs beat the 4th-ranked Sooners, 37-33. But Katy may have also picked the wrong guy to crush on. Trevor has a girlfriend.
They are arguably the most boring couple in Hollywood, but maybe a baby will make them more interesting. Blake Lively is pregnant and yes, her husband Ryan Reynolds is the father. Blake made the announcement on her website, Preserve. She posted a bunch of photos of pregnant women, and then after congratulating “all the expecting mothers out there,” Blake posted a picture showing off her own pregnant belly. Congratulations!
