‘Sex and the City’ favorites return… New album alert… Carrie Underwood thanks fans… Chris Harrison got an eight-figure settlement… and Kanye West rebounds with supermodel Irina Shayk

Listen to “Showbiz – June 10, 2021” on Spreaker.


HBO Max announced yesterday that more familiar faces are returning for the “Sex and the City” revival series, “And Just Like That.” David Eigenberg and Evan Handler are back as Miranda and Charlotte’s husbands, Harry Goldenblatt and Steve Brady. Willie Garson and Mario Cantone are also returning as Carrie Bradshaw’s best friend Stanford Blatch and his event planner husband, Anthony Marentino. We already knew Chris Noth is returning as Mr. Big, but with no Kim Cattrell, there’s no need for Samantha’s Smith Jerrod, played by Jason Lewis.

We have two new albums to look forward to. According to a South Korean media outlet, BTS will drop a new album in early July. However, their record label will neither confirm nor deny this report. They will only say that they will reveal BTS’ plans after they are finalized. But this we do know for sure — Doja Cat’s new album “Planet Her” is coming out in two weeks on the 25th.

Going into the CMT Music Awards last night, they’d narrowed down the Video of the Year category to four nominees — Carrie Underwood and John Legend’s “Hallelujah”; Kane Brown’s “Worldwide Beautiful”; Keith Urban and Pink’s “One Too Many”; and Kelsea Ballerini’s “Hole in the Bottle.” And congratulations to Carrie and John for winning Video of the Year. This is John Legend’s first CMT Music Award, which recognizes the best in music videos. Co-host Kane Brown took home a pair of awards, including Male Video of the Year for Collaborative Video of the Year for “Famous Friends” with Chris Young. Kane’s co-host Kelsea Ballerini won her very first CMT Award from her performance at last year’s award ceremony. She and Halsey won Performance of the Year for “The Other Girl.” Female Video of the Year went to Gabby Barrett for “The Good Ones” and Little Big Town won Duo/Group Video of the Year for “Wine, Beer, Whiskey.”

ABC is using a rotation of hosts to replace Chris Harrison on this summer’s “Bachelor in Paradise.” Yesterday they announced that Lance Bass, Lil Jon and Tituss Burgess will join the previously announced David Spade as one of the hosts. More hosts are expected to be announced. We also know that Wells Adams is coming back with his fiancée Sarah Hyland, but we don’t know what their roles will be. Filming just started this week in Mexico and more guest hosts are expected to be announced. The show returns on Aug. 16.

It looks like Kanye West has moved on from Kim Kardashian with supermodel Irina Shayk. They were seen landing at a private airport in NJ yesterday after spending Kanye’s birthday together in Provence, France. A source told Page Six that they’ve been seeing each other for only a few weeks, but TMZ says it’s been since early March. Either way, all sources say it’s super casual at this point. Kanye and Irina have known each other for years. She was in his 2010 video for “Power” and walked his Yeezy show in Paris back in 2012.
