James Corden responds to petition… Tristan Thompson & Khloe Kardashian after their recent split… Britney Spears’ brother-in-law defends her family… Zendaya looking so stunning at the BET AWARDS… and Cardi B with the iconic pregnancy revealListen to “Showbiz – June 28, 2021” on Spreaker.
TikToker Kim Saira had a goal of getting 50K on her online petition to have the “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts” segment removed from “The Late Late Show” with James Corden. She was about 5K shy of reaching her goal. In her petition, Kim explained that many of the foods James presented as “gross” are actually eaten regularly by Asian people. She explained, “So many Asian Americans are consistently bullied and mocked for their native foods, and this segment amplifies and encourages it.” James was asked about the petition in a recent interview. While he is not getting rid of the segment, James said, “The next time we do that bit we absolutely won’t involve or use any of those foods…Our show is a show about joy and light and love, we don’t want to make a show to upset anybody.”
Last week, we found out Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson had broken up AGAIN after rumors that he’d cheated on her popped up AGAIN. Were the rumors true? Or did Khloe just realize she can never fully trust Tristan because this cloud of doubt will always hang over her head? Either way, she decided they’re done. But it doesn’t look like Tristan is ready to throw in the towel. Khloe turned 37 yesterday and Tristan showed her lots of love on social media. He posted a few pictures of them cuddling and looking happy together, captioning them, “Thank you for being not just an amazing partner, mommy and best friend but also being the kindest, caring and most loving human being I’ve ever met. Your love and spirit is contagious to all who’ve met you. Thank you for always being there for me and putting our family first. I love you so much. Have an amazing day.” Will this be enough to pull Khloe back in?
Jamie Watson is married to Britney Spears’ little sister, Jamie Lynn. Yes, it’s Jamie and Jamie Lynn. And Britney’s daddy is named Jamie and her mama is named Lynne. It’s EXTREMELY confusing at family reunions. Anyway, last week Britney told a judge that she wanted to sue her whole family for not helping her get out of this conservatorship, and now her brother-in-law Jamie is speaking up in defense of his wife, Jamie Lynn. You may remember, Jamie Lynn was named trustee of Britney’s estate so she might also be making money from Britney. A lot of the #FreeBritney enthusiasts are coming for Jamie Lynn for not helping Britney out, but her husband said in a statement, “I can assure you her family loves her and wants the best for her. I wouldn’t be around people who weren’t. Who wouldn’t want to be in support of Britney?” And one of Britney’s former boyfriends who does not want to be identified at this point told the “New York Post” that he was angry hearing Britney’s lawyer say in court that Britney had never “formally” asked him to end the conservatorship. The anonymous former beau said, “She asked him four or five times a week to end the conservatorship and they would always give her some sort of BS. [Her lawyer] used the word ‘formally.’ What does that even mean when someone calls you four times a week [asking], ‘How do I end this?’ … I hope she sues [her legal team]. I will testify if it comes to that.” And by the way, her court-appointed attorney Samuel Inghan has made at least $3M from Britney’s estate since 2008.

Cardi B stole EVERYONE’S thunder at the BET Awards last night. Her husband Offset was performing with his group Migos when Cardi strutted out showing off her growing and glowing baby bump in a bedazzled onesie with the belly cut out! And in case anyone missed her on TV, Cardi immediately posted a pregnancy photo on her Instagram, showing off baby bump in a belly cast. She captioned it “#2!” and tagged Offset, just in case there was any question. Cardi and Offset’s daughter Kulture turns 3 on July 10.
