Amy Schumer opens for Madonna… Brandi Glanville won’t return to “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”… Tiger Woods can’t catch a break… Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres drama… and Justin Bieber & Usher facing a $10 million lawsuit
Amy Schumer had a big announcement on Twitter yesterday. She posted a picture of her as a little kid, singing Madonna’s 1989 hit “Like a Prayer.” She captioned it, “Guess who auditioned for @Madonna and got the part? See you in NYC on Sept 16, 17, and 19.” Yes, Amy Schumer is opening for Madonna! It looks like it’s just for these three gigs, though. Bummer. Madonna’s tour kicks of September 9 in Montreal.

Brandi Glanville won’t be back on “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” next season. Sources told “People,” “Brandi got too big for her britches. She was a diva, and it came around to bite her. By the end, she couldn’t get along with anyone, and no one wanted to shoot with her.” So Brandi’s gone. Kim Richards won’t be back because she has to deal with getting sober in rehab. And as far as Yolanda Foster, E! News says rumors she won’t return are not true. However, Yolanda is battling a very serious case of Lyme Disease and will only be able to film when she’s up to it.
Tiger Woods just couldn’t catch a break yesterday. During the first round of the 115th US Open, he got stuck in the rough on the eighth hole and his club went flying into the air after he hit the ball. Not only that, Tiger got Bobby Flay’ed!! Somebody hired a plane to fly overhead with a banner that said, “Cheater.”
Portia de Rossi didn’t think anything about her wife Ellen DeGeneres having frequent lunch dates with Tatum O’Neal…..until Tatum revealed that she is now dating mostly women!! According to “Star” magazine, Portia — like the rest of us! — had always assumed Tatum was straight. A source said, “Now alarm bells are going off in her head and she’s had to ask Ellen if there is anything going on between them. Ellen tells her ‘absolutely not,’ but the seed has definitely been planted in Portia’s mind.”
Justin Bieber and Usher are facing a $10 million lawsuit over their 2010 song “Somebody To Love.” Back in 2008, an artist named De Rico had a song that was also called “Somebody To Love,” and he claims Justin and Usher ripped him off. He filed a lawsuit in 2014, but a federal judge ruled the songs weren’t similar at all and threw out the case. But a federal appeals court just ruled that the first judge was wrong and that these songs have an “almost identical rhythm and strikingly similar melody.” And now the case will go to trial.
