“Sesame Street” is welcoming Ji-Young… Kristen Stewart’s reality show… Pleasing by Harry Styles… Selena Gomez fans convinced she’s ‘confirmed’ romance… and Kobe Bryant’s widow must turn over therapy recordsListen to “Showbiz – Nov 16, 2021” on Spreaker.
After 52 years, “Sesame Street” is still finding ways to stay relevant and to be more inclusive. In an upcoming Thanksgiving Day special called “See Us Coming Together,” “Sesame Street” will debut their first-ever Asian American Muppet. Her name is Ji-Young and she’s seven. Her passions are rocking out on her electric guitar and skateboarding. Ji-Young’s puppeteer, Kathleen Kim, is Korean American and she’s said this is truly a dream come true. “Sesame Street” created Ji-Young in response to the recent rise in anti-Asian hate. In “See Us Coming Together,” Ji-Young becomes upset after a kid tells her to “go back home.” Sesame Street’s other Asian American residents, guest stars, and friends like Elmo assure her that she belongs in America just as much as anyone else.

In a recent interview, Kristen Stewart said she’s developing a ghost hunting reality series that will be a, quote, “a paranormal romp in a queer space.” She didn’t give any more details, so we’re left to wonder….Is this going to be about gay people looking for ghosts or people looking for gay ghosts? She also talked about the first time she met Robert Pattinson. She said that during the casting process, the director had the final round of actors come to her house for a chemistry test, which included making out with each other. Kristen said, “It was so clear who worked. I was literally just like…..” And then she swooned.

This has been in the works for a minute but the website for Harry Styles’ new beauty brand “Pleasing” went live yesterday. He’s starting out with some nail polishes and skincare, but the line will expand over time. To make sure there was plenty to go around, Harry set the buying limit at 4, but the pre-orders for his Pleasing Pen sold out anyway. Who doesn’t want a Pleasing Pen? What IS a Pleasing Pen??? It’s actually roller ball filled with eye gel and lip oil, and it can eventually be yours for $30. You can buy the individual Perfect Pearl Polish or Pearly Tops Polish for $20 each, or get the Perfect Polish Set for $65, which promises “four polishes for endless combinations.” Harry actually serves as the hand model for his polishes on the Pleasing website. And he also launched a TikTok for the brand. The first video shows black and white waves crashing into the shore with a less-than-enthusiastic sound Harry providing the voiceover. Harry says, “We’re a life brand that moves to wherever there’s something pleasing to be found. Our mission is to bring joyful experiences and products that excite the senses and blow the boundaries. We’re pleasing, never perfect. Though we prioritize people and the planet, we know we can always do better and strive to do so everyday. We celebrate the kindness and optimism in our community and the future we’re all creating together.”
Rumors have been floating around about Selena Gomez and Chris Evans for a few months now. Are they dating or not?? They were spotted having dinner a few times, and Chris recently followed Selena on Instagram. And then in one of Chris’ IG posts, fans thought they saw Selena’s reflection in the piano he was playing. Now adding more fuel to the fire, Selena did a TikTok video with Taylor Swift backstage at SNL on Saturday and she was wearing a white sweater that looked just like the one Chris famously wore in “Knives Out.” But it turns out Selena’s sweater is from Zara. It was actually a steal at $48, but it’s currently sold out.
Vanessa Bryant will never forget the details of that horrific day. In a sworn deposition, Vanessa said that late on the morning of January 26, 2020, her assistant knocked on her door and told her that her husband Kobe and their daughter Gigi had been in a helicopter crash. A few hours later, the sheriff told her the tragic news that everyone on board had died. Vanessa also Vanessa said she tried in vain to reach her husband, only to find out a few hours later and found out hours later from the sheriff that everyone on board the helicopter had died. Vanessa also claimed in her deposition that the sheriff vowed to keep all photos from the crash scene private. However, Vanessa soon found out that some of the first responders — including firefighters and sheriff’s deputies — were sharing photos of the bodies at a local bar. One of the bartenders was even bragging about seeing Kobe’s body. Vanessa filed a lawsuit against the LA County Sheriff’s Department, claiming that this was an invasion of privacy that led to emotional distress. County attorneys are questioning whether Vanessa’s trauma was caused by the photos or by the crash itself, so they requested all of the medical records from her visits to a psychotherapist. Vanessa attorneys argued this was just more invasion of privacy, but guess what? The judge is allowing the county’s request and has ordered Vanessa to turn over her medical records by November 29!
