“Bullet Train” is number one at the box office again, earning another $13.4M in its second weekend. But “Top Gun: Maverick” leaped all the way back up to the number 2 spot with $7.2M, thanks in part to adding over 300 screens and putting on a special fan appreciation event. Coming in third was “DC League of Super-Pets,” followed by “Nope” and “Thor: Love and Thunder.”

Millie Bobby Brown has enrolled in college. She told “Allure” magazine that she’s is now enrolled as an online student at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. By the way, “Stranger Things” is based in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana. Millie signed up for Purdue’s human services program. According to the university’s website, this program is “designed to provide students with basic knowledge in human development and family studies, skills for working with people in service agencies, and program evaluation skills.” Millie told “Allure” she wants to “learn about the system and how to help young people.”

It was 10 years ago this month that Prince Harry came to America and lived it up in Las Vegas. He somehow ended up in a high-roller suite playing naked pool and photos were blasted in tabloids around the world. It turns out the only thing that stayed in Vegas was the black undies Harry wore that night. A quick-thinking stripper named Carrie Royale scooped them up and held onto them all these years. Now, the former stripper is auctioning Harry’s underwear off, hoping to fetch at least a million. Bidding opened on Thursday and within the first few minutes, the opening bid of $10K went to $16K. But then a strip club owner in San Diego called in a bid of $250K. He says if he wins, he’ll create a shrine to Harry’s underwear in his club. Bidding runs through Sept. 30.

When Cardi B finds something that works for her, she wants to share it with us. Cardi posted two pictures of her thick, flowing hair, and captioned them, “My last 2 washes I been boiling onions and using the water to wash my hair. I used to do this 6 years ago when I started my healthy hair growth journey. I stopped cause I got really lazy. It’s odorless and I notice that it’s been giving a shine to my hair.” It turns out, Cardi is onto something here. According to Dr. Andrea Paul of Illuminate Labs, applying onion juice to the scalp is good to treat hair loss. The amino acids help restore hair follicles.

Back in November, Alec Baldwin was rehearsing a scene on the set of his Western movie “Rust.” The gun went off, striking and killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Alec told authorities first of all, he was told the gun wasn’t loaded. And second, he didn’t pull the trigger. He admitted that he pulled the hammer back and when they were done, he released the hammer. He was adamant that he did not pull the trigger and that the gun went off all by itself. Alec repeated the same thing in a televised interview with ABC News. But after all these months, the FBI has concluded that the gun could not have fired unless Alec pulled the trigger. They ran numerous experiments using the same model of gun Alec used on set, finding that the gun could not fire just by fiddling around with it or moving it around. The trigger HAD to be pulled. Santa Fe investigators have been waiting for the FBI’s ballistics report before sending the case to prosecutors, who will then decide what charges should be filed.
