Lea Michele welcomes a son… Selling Sunset stars were already married… Kimye vacation pics… Kobe Bryant treasures found… and BTS video ‘Dynamite’ breaks YouTube recordListen to “Showbiz – Aug 24th, 2020” on Spreaker.
Lea Michele took a beating in the press and on social media for the past several months, so it’s time to report some good Lea Michele news! Congratulations to Lea and her husband Zandy Reich on the birth of their son, Ever Leo, who entered this crazy world we live in on Aug. 20. A source told People that everyone is happy and healthy and that Ever has been an easy baby…….so far!
I get that things are played up and staged for reality TV, but I don’t like being flat-out lied to. This was a huge spoiler alert for me and it could be for others who are late to “Selling Sunset,” but it turns out that Mary and Romain were already married before filming began!!! The entire first season was focused on their age difference and whether or not he even wanted to get married, but THEY WERE ALREADY FREAKING MARRIED!!! Their rep confirmed to Us Weekly, “Mary and Romain had a civil union a couple of months before the show began filming in June of 2018, but they chose not to tell any of their friends or family, as they were still trying to see if their relationship would work out in the long term. In their minds, they weren’t properly married until the wedding that was filmed during the show.”
After an extended emergency vacation to save their marriage, People is reporting that Kanye West flew back to LA to be with Kim and their four kids. Their source said, “They are all spending the weekend at their Hidden Hills house and catching up as a family.” After a beach vacation in the Dominican Republic and then a glamping vacation in Colorado, Kanye flew back to Wyoming. Kim was there for him as he re-launched his Sunday Service, but then she flew back to LA, which is where she’s been this past week. There’s no telling how long Kanye will be able to handle the LA scene before he hops a plane back to Wyoming.
TMZ is reporting that someone bought an abandoned storage locker in LA for $375. When they opened it up, it was filled with basketball shoes and Lakers jerseys and it didn’t take long for them to realize this stuff had belonged to Kobe Bryant! Of course it all has to be authenticated to know for sure, but it definitely looks like Kobe’s stuff. There were 35 pairs of shoes, Lakers practice gear and jerseys, an all-access Lakers badge that says “Mamba,” some tax paperwork and a mink coat! And what a coincidence! This all happened yesterday, which would’ve Kobe’s birthday. And here’s another interesting twist, the guy who bought the locker for $375 called up “Storage Wars” star Rene Nezhoda and sold it to him for the bargain price of $13K. Rene says he plans to turn around and sell Kobe’s things through a reputable auction house, and that this will NOT be filmed for his TV show. This whole thing smells very fishy to us….
BTS just broke all the YouTube records for a music video. Only 8 weeks ago, Blackpink released their video for “How You Like That.” The moment it debuted, 1.65M people tuned in, giving Blackpink the record for the most people watching at the same time. When “Dynamite” debuted, more than 3M people were watching, so now BTS holds the record. And then BTS shattered Blackpink’s record for the most views in 24 hours. For 8 weeks, it was 86.3M views. The new record to beat belongs to BTS, with 101.1M views in its first 24 hours. By the way, BTS released two remix versions of “Dynamite” this morning. One is acoustic and the other is EDM.
Korean pop stars BTS have made history after the group’s new single “Dynamite” became the best-ever 24-hour debut of a music video on YouTube with more than 100 million views. https://t.co/XkNOzfoLyU— CNN International (@cnni) August 24, 2020
