Signature forged… Ruby Rose’s exit… Danielle Bregoli entered rehab… Keke Palmer speaks out… and Lea Michele apologizes after accusations
The sheriff of Hillsborough County, Florida, says two experts agree — Don Lewis’ signature on his will that left everything to his wife Carole Baskin was forged. Sheriff Chad Chronister told a local station they knew this before the experts even looked at it because a woman came forward and said she was forced to say she witnessed Don sign the will, but it was all a lie. But by that point, the will had LONG been executed and the statute of limitations had expired. So what now? Well, nothing, at least as far as the will goes. But the sheriff said it does “cast another shadow of suspicion” on the disappearance of Don Lewis. He added, “Investigators have some great leads. They’re working through them. I hope something pans out.”
Ruby Rose shocked everybody when she announced she wouldn’t be coming back for Season 2 of “Batwoman.” She still hasn’t told us why, but a week after she announced she was leaving, she posted, “It wasn’t an easy decision but those who know, know.” She added that she has chosen to remain silent….for now. Meantime, the show must go on! The CW promised they would cast another LGBTQ actress to take over the role, but Entertainment Weekly just found out that they’re not. Instead, they’re introducing a new character named Ryan Wilder who will take up Batwoman’s cause. In the casting notice that’s been reposted on Reddit, they’re looking for a female in her mid to late 20s who is “likable, messy, a little goofy, and untamed…. With no one in her life to keep her on track, Ryan spent years as a drug-runner, dodging the GCPD and masking her pain with bad habits. Today, reformed and sober, Ryan lives in van with her plant. A girl who would steal milk from an alley cat and could also kill you with her bare hands, Ryan is the most dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and wildly disciplined. An out lesbian. Athletic. Raw. Passionate. Fallible. And very much not your stereotypical All-American hero.” “Batwoman” returns to The CW in January. Meantime, you can stream Season 1 on HBO Max.
Danielle Bregoli – aka Bhad Bhabie — is in rehab, and has been for a few weeks. Sources close to the 17-year-old rapper told TMZ Danielle chose to seek treatment for past childhood traumas and prescription pill abuse.
While protesting in LA yesterday, Keke Palmer begged members of the National Guard to march with the protestors. She said, “We need you. March with us! March beside us!” The soldiers said they weren’t allowed to leave their posts, but the eventually knelt with the crowd, instead.
“Buildings can be rebuilt, but once lives are taken, they’re gone.”@KekePalmer speaks out on asking National Guardsman to march with her and why it’s important to her to be on the front lines of the protests over the death of George Floyd. https://t.co/GVhFAoPK2S pic.twitter.com/q14UYjq9tN— Good Morning America (@GMA) June 3, 2020
When Lea Michele posted in support of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement, one of her former costars on “Glee” blasted her for making her season on the show a living hell. Samantha Ware posted, “I BELIEVE YOU TOLD EVERYONE THAT IF TOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY YOU WOULD ‘S— IN MY WIG!’ AMONGST OTHER TRAUMATIC MICROAGRESSIONS THAT MADE ME QUESTION A CAREER IN HOLLYWOOD…” Fellow “Glee” actor Dabier Snell piled on, tweeting, “GIRL YOU WOULDNT LET ME SIT AT THE TABLE WITH THE OTHER CAST MEMBERS CAUSE ‘I DIDNT BELONG THERE’ (BLANK) YOU LEA.” Lea has now released a statement that said in part, “While I don’t remember ever making this specific statement and I have never judged others by their background or color of their skin, that’s not really the point. What matters is that I clearly acted in ways which hurt other people. Whether it was my privileged position and perspective that caused me to be perceived as insensitive or inappropriate at times or whether it was just my immaturity and me just being unnecessarily difficult, I apologize for my behavior and for any pain which I have caused. We all can grow and change and I have definitely used these past several months to reflect on my own shortcomings.”
