SPOILER ALERT… A reboot of “Doogie Howser, M.D.”… Peter Weber is telling ALL about those Kelley romance rumors… The Weeknd claims Usher copied him… and Fox to air one-hour TMZ special on ‘Tiger King’ backstory
SPOILER ALERT: It wasn’t LaLa Anthony. It wasn’t Blac Chyna. After being voted off “The Masked Singer” last night, Kangaroo revealed herself to be none other than Kylie Jenner’s former BFF Jordyn Woods. Jordyn revealed on the show that she’d never sung in public before and they all told her that this was going to change her life. And without bringing up the scandal that got her kicked out of the Kardashian inner circle, Nick Cannon told Jordyn that THIS would be the thing that gets the “Kylie’s Former BFF” title removed from her name. Only time will tell! Jordyn told Entertainment Weekly that her vocal coach just so happens to be one of the lead vocal coaches on “The Masked Singer” so he suggested her to the producers and they reached out to see if she’d be interested.
Disney+ launched in November and was an instant success. Last year, Disney told investors they projected to have 60M-90M subscribers by 2024. But after only 5 months, they’re almost at 50M! If Baby Yoda wasn’t enough to get you to sign up, does does a Doogie Howser reboot do it for you? “Doogie Howser, M.D.” ran on ABC from 1989-1993 and launched the career of Neil Patrick Harris, but he won’t be part of the reboot. This new version is being developed by Kourtney Kang, the writer/producer behind “How I Met Your Mother” and “Fresh Off the Boat.” It’s being called “Doogie Kealoha, M.D.” and it’s about a 16-year-old girl genius who is half-Asian, half-white and works as a doctor in Hawaii. Kourtney was born in Hawaii, so she’s drawing from her own experiences with this show. No release date has been announced.
A reboot of “Doogie Howser, M.D.” is in the works at Disney Plus. The new show will focus on a 16-year-old half-Asian, half-white woman who is a doctor in Hawaii. The working title “Doogie Kealoha, M.D” https://t.co/ukXdzWQQOZ pic.twitter.com/3NPhfts1Ak— Variety (@Variety) April 9, 2020
Peter the Pilot is finally doing some interviews. How in the world ABC let him off the hook from doing the talk show rounds, we’ll never know. But Peter Weber has been popping up on fellow Bachelor/Bachelorette’s podcasts to tell his side of the story. Peter’s been hunkering down with Kelley Flanagan at her home in Chicago and he told Becca Kufrin and Rachel Lindsay that he’s gotten to know her better than he ever got to know his former fiancee Hannah Ann and his FINAL final pick, Madison. Peter says he and Kelley aren’t putting a label on their relationship, but it’s “a good time.” He also revealed that Kelley has three bedrooms, no roommates, and they each have their own room. Kelley also popped up on the podcast and wanted us all to know that “there’s Peter Weber and there’s the Bachelor Peter,’” just like she would say while taping the show. But she said the producers would tell her to stop saying that and she said no, because the Peter she met outside the show was so much cooler than the one he was during the show.
Do you like Usher’s music? The Weeknd says you can thank him for that. In an interview with Variety, The Weeknd had the nerve to say that his 2011 mixtape “House of Balloons” influenced Usher’s 2012 song “Climax.” He said, “House of Balloons literally changed the sound of pop music before my eyes. I heard ‘Climax,’ that Usher song, and was like, ‘Holy (BLANK). That’s a Weend song.” He said he was initially angry about it, but then grew to look at it as a compliment.
FOX is set to air a new special produced by TMZ this Monday called “TMZ Investigates: Tiger King — What Really Went Down?” Harvey Levin will interview people connected to Netflix’s docuseries and air some never-before-seen footage. According to the Nielsen ratings, “Tiger King” was watched by 19M viewers in the US over its first 10 days of release, and more than 34M in the US at least watched a few minutes of it during that same time span. That puts it right up there with the numbers for “Stranger Things.”
