ABC is furious with Michael Strahan… Sharon Osbourne didn’t hold back on Kim Kardashian… Lil Wayne was found unconscious… Taylor Swift’s fans booed her… and Kate Middleton is pregnant with baby #3
According to Page Six, the big bosses at ABC are furious with Michael Strahan for refusing to cut short his vacation to come back and cover the Hurricane Harvey disaster on “Good Morning America,” especially considering it hit his own home town of Houston! A source said Michael had already been yachting in Greece for a week and had another week to go when he got the call to come back, but he said no! Instead, he tweeted:
To my hometown of Houston and everyone there…I Love You and am praying for your safety. H-TOWN LOVE!

Now, Michael will be taking part in the Hurricane Harvey telethon because it happens after his vacation wraps up. But interesting to note, without even being asked, Robin Roberts cut short her summer vacation to come back and cover the story for GMA.
Sharon Osbourne didn’t hold back in her interview with The Telegraph. When she was asked about Kim Kardashian’s tendency to post nude or close-to-it selfies, Sharon responded, “Kim says she’s doing everything in the name of feminism, but that’s not feminism!” She said, “Those girls live off their bodies…Everything they do from the sex tape to the plastic see-through dresses and the gym wear is about sex, not female progress….If Kim wants to show off her body, fine. But that’s not feminism, that’s being a ho. And there’s nothing wrong with being a ho, but always remember what you are.”
Everyone who went to his concert in Florida Friday night and then the one in Indiana the next night said Lil Wayne seemed fine to them. He seemed healthy and arrived on time. That doesn’t mean he STARTED on time. Someone at the show in Florida told People magazine that Weezy walked out on stage smoking a joint hours after he was supposed to begin, trying to act like some DJ issue caused him to be so late. After that, though, they said he was awesome and even performed an extra ten minutes. But by Sunday afternoon, Lil Wayne was found unconscious in his Chicago hotel room after suffering an epileptic seizure. He was rushed to the hospital where he suffered another seizure. His daughter Reginae Carter tweeted yesterday that her dad is doing fine and not to believe everything we hear.
Taylor Swift’s best friend Abigail Anderson got married in Martha’s Vineyard on Saturday and OF COURSE she Taylor was in the wedding. But, like all good bridesmaids, Taylor wanted all the attention to be on the bride, so she had her bodyguards put up this makeshift barrier to shield her as she left the church and hopped into an SUV. But the fans who’d been waiting to catch a glimpse of Taylor didn’t like that one bit. Their cries of “We love you, Taylor!” morphed into, “We thought you loved your fans! This is not cool!!” They even booed her! What’s up with that? I don’t know if she’s friends with Taylor or not, but Paramore’s Hayley Williams has her back. She tweeted, “Yooo if you were one of Taylor swift’s ‘fans’ BOOING her for not doing a meet and greet during her friends WEDDING you’ve got issues.”
Kate Middleton already has the Heir and the Spare! But despite severe morning sickness that’s landed her in the hospital on multiple occasions, she and Prince William are expecting their third child! Rumors started after she went to the hospital with severe vomiting. And after she had to cancel an appearance, Kensington Palace felt they should go ahead and confirm the pregnancy. Big brother Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge recently turned four. His baby sister Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge is two. Meantime, Meghan Markle has FINALLY confirmed that she is not only dating Prince Harry, they are IN LOVE!! In the October issue of Vanity Fair, Meghan said, “I can tell you that at the end of the day I think it’s really simple. We’re two people who are really happy and in love. We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news.”
