WWE Superstar Chyna has passed away… HBO giving us a free preview weekend… Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale divorce is final… Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth wedding planning… and Kelly Ripa had a total meltdown over Strahan’s betrayal
Former WWE Superstar Chyna has passed away at the age of 46. Chyna’s real name was Joanie Laurer. She was found in her home yesterday after friends became concerned when they hadn’t heard from her. The cause of death has not been determined, but investigators reportedly are looking into the possibility that this was a prescription drug overdose. If you remember, Chyna was on “Celebrity Rehab” with Dr. Drew in 2008.
HBO believes everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy the premiere of Beyonce’s “Lemonade” so they’re giving us a free preview weekend! “Lemonade” will debut this Saturday night at 9pm EST/ 8pm CST. It’s an hour-long event that airs between the world pay-TV premiere of “Jurassic World” and some middleweight world championship boxing match between two guys I’ve never heard of. But if you have plans Saturday night, “Lemonade” will also run again Sunday at 8pm EST before the season premiere of “Game of Thrones.”

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have reached a divorce settlement, and Gwen came out the big winner here. She should! They split after 13 years of marriage because of his alleged affair with the nanny. Gwen gets to keep all the rights to her No Doubt music and Gavin gets to keep all the rights to his Bush music. She also has complete control over her fashion lines L.A.M.B. and Harajuku Lovers, but she is putting 25 percent of her L.A.M.B. profits into a trust for their three sons. Gwen keeps most of their cars while he gets their 2003 Range Rover Vogue V8. She’s giving up all her rights to any of their four properties in Europe, but they’ll split the sale of their Beverly Hills home 50/50. She also keeps their two homes in LA. There’s no child support. No spousal support. Joint physical and legal custody. Done and DONE.
Despite his denial that they’re even engaged, it looks like this wedding is happening. Miley Cyrus has been wearing her old engagement ring, and even though Liam Hemsworth told an Australian reporter that he’s not engaged, sources say he just flat-out lied. Apparently they are fully underway planning their wedding. A source told RadarOnline.com that Miley and Liam want to have a summer wedding and they plan to hold it close to their homes in Malibu.
Kelly Ripa’s still mad, y’all. She no-showed on “Live with Kelly and Michael” yesterday after he blindsided her with the news he’s leaving at the end of summer to go full-time on “Good Morning America.” Ana Gasteyer filled in for Kelly yesterday. And Kelly won’t be back today, either, so we’re stuck with Erin Andrews. And then they’ll pre-record Friday’s show so we get back-to-back Erin. Ugh. Kelly had already planned to be off Friday and Monday so she and Mark Consuelos could celebrate their 20th anniversary. Now will have to see if Kelly shows back up on Tuesday, as was planned before the poop hit the fan. Sources behind the scenes say there’s no way she’ll quit. Kelly earns a reported $15 million a year for this sweet gig and she and hubby Mark need that cash to support their very lavish lifestyle.
