Brand new $10 bill… Brian Williams will not return to “NBC Nightly News”… Tommy Chong’s second battle with cancer… Melissa Rivers will join “Fashion Police”… and Charlize Theron & Sean Penn have ended their engagement
The U.S. Department of Treasury has confirmed that we are getting a woman’s face on a brand new $10 bill that will be unveiled in 2020, which marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, giving women the right to vote. They SAY they haven’t picked who it will be yet, but according to “Business Insider,” it’s going to be Harriet Tubman. The Treasury is wanting us to get on the discussion, though. If you tweet about it, use #TheNew10.
Lester Holt gets to stay in the anchor’s seat! NBC says Brian Williams will not return to “NBC Nightly News,” but he will stay on with the network. The “New York Times” says Brian will most likely be assigned to handle breaking news at MSNBC.
Tommy Chong is famous for being a pot head and now he’s using marijuana to deal with his second battle with cancer. Tommy told “Us Weekly” that he’s been diagnosed with rectal cancer and he’s “using cannabis like crazy now, more so than ever before.” Tommy used pot to get relief during his battle with prostate cancer back in 2012.
E! has announced their new host for “Fashion Police.” When the show returns on August 31 for the MTV Video Music Awards, Melissa Rivers will be sitting in her late mom’s chair. So the plan for now will be to have Melissa, Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski serve as permanent hosts, and they’ll rotate in celebrity guests to sit in that fourth chair. E! has committed to six episodes and I guess they’ll decide whether this is a show worth keeping after that.
Charlize Theron and Sean Penn have called off their engagement. Actually, sources are saying that Charlize is the one who ended things. They were last seen together at her “Mad Max” premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May, and accruing to “Us Weekly,” they broke up right after that. In fact, Sean DID have his house up for sale, but he’s pulled it off the market.
