CBS is eyeing an all-star season… Conor decided to retire… Ryan Seacrest considers permanent move… Cole Sprouse & Kaia Gerber protest… and Lea Michele has allegedly ‘had a real wake-up call’

It was July 2000 when “Big Brother” first debuted on CBS. Yes, we’re coming up on the 20th anniversary of this show, which has digressed to complete lewdness. But to mark the occasion, CBS reportedly has been reaching out to former players to see if they’d be interested in doing a second “All Stars” edition. Sources told Us Weekly that a few of them have said no. They all have different reasons, but a major one is the fear of getting coronavirus. But because of coronavirus, sources say players will also have to be sequestered longer than usual, and they’ll have to be quarantined for 14 days before entering the game, which would push back the start time of the show until later this summer.

Conor McGregor tweeted yesterday that he’s retiring from mixed martial arts AGAIN. He posted a photo of him and his mom and captioned it, “Hey guys I’ve decided to retire from fighting. Thank you all for the amazing memories! What a ride it’s been! Here is a picture of myself and my mother in Las Vegas post one of my World title wins! Pick the home of your dreams Mags I love you! Whatever you desire it’s yours.” You may remember that Conor retired in 2016, only to un-retire a few days later. In 2019, Conor retired again, but ended up un-retiring again to fight Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone this past January. Conor knocked him out in 40 seconds. If this is TRULY it, Conor retires as one of the most successful MMA fighters of all time, with a record of 22-4. He’s also headlined 5 of the top 6 highest-selling Pay Per View events in MMA history, and his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather was the second-highest PPV event in history.

Ryan Seacrest is exhausted. It all seemed to come to a head when his body started shutting down on him during the live finale of “American Idol.” Ryan struggled to speak as his eye drooped heavily, causing many to believe they were witnessing him suffer a stroke. But his rep insists it was just the result of a packed schedule. While he’s been able to do “Live with Kelly and Ryan” from his LA home during quarantine, and he REALLY likes it. In fact, once things get back to normal, Ryan doesn’t want to move back to NYC. A source told Page Six, “Ryan knows the show needs the hosts in the same room…but right now, he’s dreading the thought of not living in California.” Fortunately, “Live” will be going on hiatus for a couple weeks next month, so he’ll have time to rest and reflect on what he really wants.

More than a month ago, Cole Sprouse lashed out at those spreading rumors that he was dating Kaia Gerber. This was when people assumed he was still dating Lili Reinhart, so of course Kaia had to pay and the #ColeSprouseIsOverParty began. Cole responded on Instagram, “I tolerate a lot of rumors and slander from people online claiming to be my fans…but attacking my friends, baseless accusations, leaking my address and sending death threats are all qualities of insanity and fanaticism. Choose humanity.” Even Lili jumped in, posting, “Twitter is such a vile place. It’s so easy to say s*** behind your f***ing phone, isn’t it? This is why people choose to keep their relationship private. This is why people don’t have social media…because of this bullying.” Whether or not Cole and Kaia were dating at the time, we don’t know. But the two of them were photographed protesting in LA together yesterday.

One of Lea Michele’s friends — yes, Lea has friends — admitted to “The Post, that yes, “Lea was a b**** to a lot of people who are now taking the opportunity to come forward…” But the source said that while she’s not the nicest person, “she’s not racist, sexist or transphobic. I would say she has behavioral issues that she’s dealing with.” At seven months pregnant, Lea is hormonal anyway, but the source said she’s been crying constantly as person after person comes forward to call her out on her bad behavior. In fact, a woman named Monica Moskatow recalled the time she was hired to be a Rachel Berry impersonator at a party for the cast of “Glee,” which was just about to debut. Monica said when Lea found her she took one look at her and said TO HER FACE, “Oh my god. Could they have picked someone uglier??!!” Cory Monteith — who would later go on to become Lea’s boyfriend up until the time of his death — saw the look on Monica’s face and said, “Don’t listen to her, she’s just jealous. You’re beautiful.”
