Netflix cancels Bill Cosby’s new comedy special… Tyga bails on event because of Kylie Jenner… Kathy Griffin will replace Joan Rivers… Zayn joins the rest of One Direction for concert special… and Chris Hemsworth is this year’s Sexiest Man Alive
Netflix has canceled Bill Cosby’s new comedy special, “Bill Cosby 77,” which was set to be released the day after Thanksgiving. Yeah….they don’t want to be tied to a guy who has all these women coming forward accusing him of drugging and raping them. Janice Dickinson is the third woman to come forward with her own story. She claims it happened at Lake Tahoe way back in 1982. She remembers Bill giving her a drink and a pill and then being assaulted just before she passed out. Bill isn’t commenting on any of the women’s claims, but his lawyer says they’re all lying.
Tyga was all set to appear at the Greystone Manor nightclub in West Hollywood — his face was on posters and tickets were being sold. It was a done deal. But on his way to the club, Tyga was told to leave his 17-year-old girlfriend Kylie Jenner at home, and he went nuts. TMZ is reporting that Tyga begged them to make an exception and then pushed back his arrival time to 1:30am, hoping he could convince them to change their minds. But they said absolutely not and Tyga bailed, completely ticking off his sponsor, Ciroc.
TMZ is reporting that Kathy Griffin will replace Joan Rivers on “Fashion Police.” Sources say she’ll join Melissa Rivers, Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic, but they don’t know if George Kotsiopoulos will be back. The sources also say the show will no longer be weekly. Instead, “Fashion Police” will now cover awards shows and event programming.
Zayn Malik had to prove the substance abuse rumors were untrue and that it really was a tummy bug. Zayn was on the first plane out of London to join the rest of One Direction as they filmed a concert special at Universal Orlando. We’ll get to see it on NBC on December 23rd.
People magazine has named Chris Hemsworth this year’s Sexiest Man Alive. The announcement was made during Jimmy Kimmel’s show Tuesday night. Jimmy accused Chris of stealing the title from Matt Damon, and Chris said, “I learned everything there is about being sexy from Matt — pursing the lips, squinting at the right time. Thank you Matt and all the other previous intelligent men.”
