Billboard actress update… DWTS celebrities… Coming 2 America sequel… Liam Hemsworth chills in Australia… and Katie Holmes & Jamie Foxx split
Remember when that actress paid for a billboard right up the street from Tyler Perry’s studios asking for a job? That led him to go on a Facebook rant telling people to stop wasting their money on stunts like that to get his attention because it doesn’t work with him. Well, that woman’s name is Racquel Bailey and her billboard stunt led to about 20 auditions and 3 gigs. In fact, one of those roles is for a Tyler Perry show! TMZ has learned that Racquel was cast in Tyler’s new show for BET called “Sistas,” and she even shot WITH Tyler last week in Atlanta. According to their sources, Racquel will be in the show’s season one finale and possibly in season two.

It’s been a minute since “Dancing With the Stars” was on the air, but it’s finally coming back on September 16. The celebrity dancers will be announced on “Good Morning America” tomorrow, but the show teased us on Instagram with a torso shot of one of the dancers, asking, “Any guesses?” Of course, everybody knew right away it was most recent “Bachelorette” Hannah Brown. One commenter said, “I can confirm this is Hannah B. because of the beauty marks on her neck and right shoulder.” Another knew it was Hannah based upon the freckles on her hand. Other rumored celebrity dancers include Karamo Brown from “Queer Eye” and Abby Lee Miller from “Dance Moms.”

“Coming 2 America” is happening!! Can you believe it’s been 31 years since we experienced the greatness of Sexual Chocolate?? But we have to wait until Dec. 18, 2020, for part two. Eddie Murphy is back as Prince Akeem of Zamunda, who came to Queens, NY, to find his bride. In the sequel, Prince Akeem is preparing to become the next king, only to discover now that a one-night stand he had back in the day led to a son he never knew. Honoring his father’s dying wish, Prince Akeem returns to Queens to prepare his son, Lavelle, for his role as a prince. Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones and Shari Headley all return for the sequel. New actors include Wesley Snipes, Kiki Layne, and Tracy Morgan, who plays a hustler named Reem. And Lesley Jones plays the one-night stand that produced the future prince!
Radar Online is reporting that after his split from Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth plans to remain in Australia for some soul-searching and surfing. Their source says, “He’ll still come to LA to do business and shoot movies, but this whole experience has really reinforced to Liam that Hollywood’s not for him in the long term.” And that’s basically what Miley sings about in “Slide Away,” which was released less than a week after their separation was announced. In the lyrics, she sings about wanting her house in the hills and tells him to go back to the ocean while she returns to the city lights.
They never officially confirmed it. They just allowed paparazzi to take pictures of them on romantic strolls on the beach and vacationing on a yacht in Miami. They finally officially posed for a photo together when they were inside the Met Gala back in May. But sources say that same month, the two of them broke up. One source said Jamie and Katie have great chemistry, but neither one of them is willing to uproot their lives and totally merge their lives together. As far as Jamie hanging out with 21-year-old singer-songwriter Seal Vave, sources say he’s simply helping her with her music career.
