Dance Moms: The Reunion is coming to Lifetime on May 1 and the trailer is out now. Unfortunately for Dance Mom fans, not all of the OG girls participated. JoJo Siwa, Chloé Lukasiak, Brooke Hyland, Paige Hyland, Kendall Vertes and Kalani Hilliker reunite for the first time in 10 years, but Mia Sioux and sisters Kenzie and Maggie Ziegler took a pass saying, “We’re good.” In the trailer, JoJo calls out the girls who didn’t show up, saying, “Them not being here is kind of like, ‘Let me erase my past, pretend it never happened, shove it down the drain.’ When it’s like, that’s why you are who you are.” The moms will be there to talk about some of their most memorable moments from the show, which premiered in July of 2011 and ran for 8 seasons and 224 episodes. Following the two-hour reunion special on May 1, Lifetime will debut their new show Dance Moms: Epic Showdowns. Chloé Lukasiak will host the 10-episode series. Each half-hour episode will look back at the most explosive dance battles and meltdowns from the series, including the moms and the infamous dance instructor, Abby Lee Miller, who – if you remember – served 8 months in prison back in 2017 after being found guilty of fraud charges.

Surprise! Gal Gadot has given birth to her FOURTH baby. And just like 3 times before, it’s another girl! Gal made the announcement on her Instagram, posting a picture with her newborn, captioning it, “My sweet girl, welcome. The pregnancy was not easy and we made it through. You have brought so much light into our lives, living up to your name, Ori, which means ‘my light’ in Hebrew. Our hearts are full of gratitude. Welcome to the house of girls.. daddy is pretty cool too.” Daddy is Jaron Varsano, Gal’s husband since 2008 and the man who encouraged her to pursue her dream of acting. Baby Ori joins big sisters 12-year-old Alma, 6-year-old Maya, and 2-year-old Daniella.

After attending his brother Jason’s NFL retirement announcement and hitting up the Cavaliers game, Travis Kelce and some of his buddies boarded a jet for the 19-hour flight to Singapore. They stopped briefly in Dubai to refuel, which is where one of Travis’ best friends Ross Travis posted a photo of himself on the tarmac. His other friend, Harry Clark, posted a video of himself and Travis’ manager André Eanes chowing down on some Dubai Shake Shack. The group landed in Singapore Thursday and on Friday night — Singapore is 14 hours ahead of the Central Time zone — Travis and his crew were there to watch Taylor Swift perform the fifth of her six sold-out shows. Taylor has one more there Sunday night and then she’s off to Austria.

The 96th Academy Awards are this Sunday night, and you can watch live on ABC starting at 6pm Central — an hour earlier that usual. Oppenheimer leads with 13 nominations, followed by Poor Things with 11, and Killers of the Flower Moon with 10. Among the presenters this year are Emily Blunt, Jennifer Lawrence, Dwayne Johnson, Matthew McConaughey, Al Pacino, Zendaya, Bad Bunny, Ariana Grande and dozens and dozens more. Ryan Gosling is not only presenting, will also be singing his Oscar-nominated song I’m Just Ken from the movie Barbie. Billie Eilish and Finneas will also be performing What Was I Made For? from the same movie. The remaining three Oscar-nominated songs to be performed are The Fire Inside from Flamin’ Hot by Becky G, It Never Went Away from American Symphony by Jon Batiste, and Wahzhazhe (A Song for My People) from Killers of the Flower Moon by Scott George and the Osage Singers.

In a surprise announcement, Jake Paul will take on Mike Tyson in the boxing ring, live from the home of the Dallas Cowboys — AT&T Stadium — on Saturday, July 20. It will stream live worldwide on Netflix. At the time of the fight, Mike will be 58 and Jake will be 27. Mike released a statement saying, “I’m very much looking forward to stepping into the ring with Jake Paul…He’s grown significantly as a boxer over the years, so it will be a lot of fun to see what the will and ambition of a ‘kid’ can do with the experience and aptitude of a GOAT. It’s a full circle moment that will be beyond thrilling to watch; as I started him off on his boxing journey on the undercard of my fight with Roy Jones and now I plan to finish him.” We don’t know yet whether this will be a pro fight or an exhibition, and we don’t know how much these men are being paid. Certainly, it will be in the millions.
