In The Heights disappoints… NBC halts production on Ultimate Slip ‘N Slide… Seat sells for $28 million… Celebrity relationship recap… and Did Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani get married this weekend?!

Listen to “Showbiz – June 14, 2021” on Spreaker.


The top two spots at the box office are really too close to call at this point. As of now, “A Quiet Place Part II” sits at $11.65M, barely beating “In the Heights,” which debuted with $11.4M. Final box office receipts are still being counted, so that could change by the end of the day. While “In the Heights” didn’t hit the numbers the movie studio was hoping for, they’re hoping the same thing that happened with “The Greatest Showman” happens here. That movie musical didn’t start off with a great box office, either, but positive word of mouth kept the crowds coming and it ended up earning $174M in the US and $438M around the world.

NBC is about a week away from wrapping production on a new game show called “Ultimate Slip ‘N Slide,” which is set to debut in August. However, all filming has been shut down indefinitely due to a massive onset of diarrhea! A source says up to 40 crew members fell violently ill after an outbreak of giardia on the set. Hosts Bobby Moynihan and Ron Funches were not among those who got sick.

In late July, Jeff Bezos and his brother are going to space on Jeff’s Blue Origin space ship. The trip is expected to last a total of 11 minutes and there are four seats available. Jeff auctioned off one seat on the flight for $28M. The identity of the winning bidder is still unknown, but can’t be kept a secret much longer! And the person taking the fourth, and final, seat on the flight will be revealed soon.

Celebrity relationship news! Kendall Jenner and Devin Booker celebrated their 1-year anniversary on Saturday with some Instagram posts. They were first spotted together in April 2020 when they took a road trip from LA to Arizona, but I guess they waited a couple months before they decided to officially start dating. Either way, congratulations on making it a year! Over the weekend, Amelia Hamlin turned 20 and her boyfriend Scott Disick took her to Miami to celebrate and gave her a great big diamond necklace. She loved it so much it made her cry. But didn’t he just give diamond necklaces out as party favors at his birthday about a month ago? Angelina Jolie was seen walking into her ex-husband Johnny Lee Miller’s apartment in Brooklyn on Friday night, carrying a bottle of wine. She left 3 hours later. Angelina was only 20 when she and Johnny married in March 1996. They separated 18 months later and then divorced a couple years after that. They’ve remained close since their split and she’s even said in an interview that divorcing Johnny was probably the dumbest thing she’s ever done.

Are Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton married or not??? On Friday, Gwen posted a picture and she’s holding a beautifully wrapped present while sipping a glass of wine. She captioned it, “SHES GETTING MARRIIIEEEEED.” At the time, we’re thinking she was posting a photo from a wedding shower, which apparently took place in Oklahoma. BUT! The next day, she and Blake were back in California, walking around a park in Santa Monica with Gwen’s 7-year-old son Apollo, and she is wearing a massive band of diamonds beneath her massive engagement ring. Did they get married while in Oklahoma?? Blake built a chapel on his ranch there, which is where he finally proposed to Gwen. A source close to the couple said they also planned to use the chapel for their wedding ceremony, which was “most likely” to take place this year.
