Listen to “Showbiz – Jun 6, 2024” on Spreaker.

 

Has Vanderpump Rules come to an end? That question is still up in the air. Also up in the air, will Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval ever agree on how to split their house?? A judge says if they can’t figure this out through mediation, this will go to trial on Feb. 17, 2026! Back in January, Ariana filed a lawsuit against Tom, trying to force the sale of the house so they could split the proceeds 50/50 and move on. But on Vanderpump Rules: Secrets Revealed, Tom said he offered to pay Ariana $600K if she’d let him keep the $3M home. He reasoned, “Based on the math, this is a buyout that is equivalent to us selling the property for $3.1M, which is way above Zillow and Redfin value and definitely above market value. With refinancing this house and pulling her name off the loan, this goes from being a $10K-a-month payment to over a $20K-a-month payment.” While they try to figure this out, Ariana recently bought her own $1.6M house in LA, about 7 miles away from the house she still reluctantly owns with Tom.

Five years after leaving The Voice, OG judge Adam Levine is taking back his spinny chair. We just have to get through one more season without him. For the upcoming Season 26 debuting this fall, Reba McEntire is back, along with returning judge Gwen Stefani, and two newbies — Snoop Dogg and Michael Bublé. Then next spring, Adam takes a seat for Season 27, along with a returning Michael Bublé, John Legend, and newbie Kelsea Ballerini.

While Britney Spears’ ex-husband Sam Asghari was busy filming Season 3 of The Traitors, Britney was hanging out with her ex-fiance Jason Trawick in Vegas! A source told Us Weekly that Jason has remained close with Britney’s big brother Bryan, so when they took a siblings trip to Vegas, they reached out to Jason and asked him to join. A source said despite the reunion, Britney and Jason are just friends. She’s still seeing her former groundskeeper/handyman Paul Richard Soliz.

Adding more fuel to the rumors that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are headed toward divorce, photos of the $60M mega-mansion they bought together last year have popped up on Zillow. The newlyweds bought the house in May of last year, 10 months after eloping to Vegas. They reportedly dropped $60.85 IN CASH for the 43K-square-foot property in Beverly Hills, which features 17 bedrooms, 30 bathrooms, a basketball court, pickleball court, gym, boxing ring, sports bar, zero-edge pool and parking for 80 vehicles.

In yesterday’s Showbiz Top 5, I did a story about Flavor Flav attempting to save Red Lobster from bankruptcy by buying everything on the menu at his local franchise. Big Al was quick to correct my pronunciation of his name, saying it was “Fla-VUH” and not “Fla-VOR” Flav. When I challenged him, he doubled down, “speaking for all Black people” that he was, in fact, correct. In an effort to get to the bottom of this, producer Trey edited and Ana posted the video of this conversation on the KiddNation Instagram page, asking, “Can @flavorflavofficial helps out in letting us know the correct way to pronounce his name?” to which @flavorflavofficial responded, “FLAVOR FLAV,,, like Flavor of Love or Cold Lampin with Flavor.” In other words, speaking for myself, I WAS RIGHT.
