An online romance with “Bruno Mars”… The Wizard of Oz remake in the works… ‘Gorilla Glue Girl’ flying to L.A… JLo on the cover of Allure… and Britney Spears working on her own documentary

Listen to “Showbiz – Feb 10, 2021” on Spreaker.


You need to keep an eye on not just what your kids are doing online, but your parents, too! A 63-year-old woman in Houston met and fell in love with Bruno Mars on Instagram in 2018. Only, it wasn’t Bruno Mars. It was Chinwendu Azuonwu. He convinced this woman that he was Bruno and that he was so crazy about her that he wanted to quit his tour to be with her. The woman believed him because he sent her multiple texts and photos of Bruno while he was on an actual tour. She told investigators send sent him $100K before she started to realize maybe this wasn’t Bruno after all. Azuonwu was finally caught and charged with third-degree felony money laundering, but that poor woman’s money is GONE.

Remakes and reboots are all the rage in Hollywood, but are there some movies that should never be touched? A remake of “The Wizard of Oz” is in the works. The original came out in 1939. We don’t have any details other than Nicole Kassell, who won an Emmy for directing HBO’s “Watchmen,” will direct what is being called a “fresh take” on this movie classic. No info on casting, a production date or release date has been given at this point.

Here’s the latest on Tessica Brown, who I’m sure is THRILLED to now be known as the “Gorilla Glue Girl.” Tessica used Gorilla Glue adhesive spray to keep her hair in place and it worked better than she could have ever dreamed. She’s been living a nightmare trying to get it out, even going to the hospital to see if they could help. But everything they have tried has made it worse. I saw yesterday where Tessica managed to break off her ponytail. She still has a helmet of glue, which she says is quite painful. Now, not only has a plastic surgeon offered to help Tessica at no charge, but Beyoncé’s hairstylist said he’s willing to help Tessica, too! He posted on his Instagram, “We all have our own options. Yes she made a big mistake But we going to keep tearing her down Let’s help her….When she leaves the hospital if she needs a wig or taking care of her scalp I’m here for her.” By the way, at last check, Tessica’s GoFundMe is closing in on $18K.

On the March issue of “Allure” you’ll find Jennifer Lopez showing off a new pixie cut. IS THIS FOR REAL??? Not that it’s not cute, because she can pull it off, but chopping off your hair like that is typically a sign of a woman going through something major…like a breakup?? In the accompanying article, Jennifer did open up about her relationship with Alex Rodriguez, but this most certainly had to be written before these recent accusations of flirting Madison LeCroy. Jennifer talked about how quarantine affected their relationship. She said she missed “being creative and running on 150,” but she said, “Alex, of all people, was like, ‘I love it. I love being at home. I love doing my Zooms. I love knowing the kids are there, and you’re there all the time.’ It has been actually really good.” But then Jennifer continued, “We got to work on ourselves. We did therapy. I think it was really helpful for us in our relationship.” Remember, JLo and A-Rod were supposed to get married last year. She said, “It was a big deal. We had been planning for months and months and months, and it was overseas…Maybe that wasn’t the right time.” And maybe… was divine intervention??

A source told Page Six that Britney Spears is emotional after finally watching “Framing Britney Spears.” Actually, the source said there were some parts that were simply too hard for her to watch, but, the source said, Britney “feels, for the first time in many years, that people are on her side and things will get better for her.” That is reflected in what she posted, probably after watching the documentary. She tweeted, “Each person has their story and their take on other people’s stories !!!! We all have so many different bright beautiful lives!!! Remember, no matter what we think we know about a person’s life it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens!!!!” Then she posted video from her Vegas show, captioning it, “Can’t believe this performance of Toxic is from 3 years ago !!! I’ll always love being on stage …. but I am taking the time to learn and be a normal person ….. I love simply enjoying the basics of every day life !!!!” Page Six is also reporting that Britney is working with a top female filmmaker to create her own documentary.
