Jonas baby No. 2… Chyna’s secret deal… Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher is a complete diva… Kelly Ripa is expected to apologize… and Is Rita Ora taunting Beyoncé?
We’re getting another Jonas baby! But it’s just Kevin and his wife Danielle’s kid so there’s no juicy gossip to go along with the announcement. Kevin and Danielle have been married for 6 years. They are already parents to 2-year-old Alena Rose.
Chyna’s manager told TMZ Sports that he’d recently struck a secret deal with the producers of “Intervention” to get her help, but she died before they could start production. Anthony Anzaldo says Chyna’s friends were concerned about her abuse of the prescription medications Ambien and Valium, so he contacted a reality show about an intervention. The plan was to get some of Chyna’s closest WWE friends — like Stone Cold Steve Austin and Mick Foley — to work with an intervention specialist. They even had facility lined up that was going to take her for 90 days. But Chyna died before this could all go down. Now Anzaldo is working on her memorial.
Life & Style magazine is reporting that Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher is a complete diva who keeps threatening to quit the show when she doesn’t get what she wants. A source said, “The fame and attention definitely fed JoJo’s ego. She wouldn’t accept anything less than what she asked for. If her requirements weren’t met, she told ABC she would quit.” Before JoJo agreed to become the Bachelorette, she had strict requirements for her potential suitors. They had to be tall, dark-haired and RICH. The source says she’s been so demanding behind the scenes that the producers are probably wishing they had stuck to their initial choice, Caila Quinn.
ABC executives reportedly apologized to Kelly Ripa for the way she was told that Michael Strahan is leaving for “Good Morning America.” Kelly is due back on “Live! With Kelly and Michael” today — the first time she’s been on the show since she found out. According to a source, Kelly and Michael finally spoke over the weekend and he also said he was sorry for things were handled and for not telling her sooner. And the sorrys continue this morning because Kelly is expected to apologize to her fans for not showing up for work last week.
Rita Ora is definitely sending a message to Beyonce. After Beyonce unveiled “Lemonade” on HBO and sang about this “Becky with the good hair,” the Beyhive attacked Rachel Roy for being Jay Z’s alleged mistress. But now they’re thinking maybe they had the wrong Becky! Just days before “Lemonade” debuted, Rita posted a series of Snapchat photos, showing her wearing a sheer bra with strategically placed lemon patches. And on her neck? A necklace with the initial “J.” Hmmm….And then yesterday, Rita stepped out wearing the exact same outfit Beyonce wore in her Formation video. Remember, Rita signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation label in 2008 when she was just 18. Rita filed a lawsuit against the label back in December claiming she she had a bunch of new material for her second album but they wouldn’t release it because Roc Nation was too busy focusing on pro athletes. So Roc Nation turned around and sued Rita, saying they already spent over $2 million marketing her second album and they want their money back.
