Tyra Banks apologizes… American Idol auditions… The Batman delayed to 2022… Tana Mongeau loses YouTube verification… and Mariah Carey is finally addressing her relationship with former fiancé James Packer

Listen to “Showbiz – Oct 6, 2020” on Spreaker.


SPOILER ALERT: Tyra Banks fumbled and bumbled her way through the end of last night’s “Dancing With the Stars,” blaming the control room and whoever wrote her cue cards for causing her to mess up so royally on live TV. Instead of two couples up for elimination, there were three standing there. But then Tyra realized she’d declared the wrong couple safe and called our favorite cheerleading coach Monica Aldama back to the dance floor to stand next to Anne Heche, who was also in the bottom two. The judges kicked Anne to the curb.

“American Idol” rolled with the coronavirus punches and made it work last season, having all the contestants perform from their homes for the live rounds. And now production has begun on the upcoming and things will still be very different. For starters, Idol is not coming to you. You come to them. All audition episodes will be held in cities across California, so road trip! And instead of sitting at one big table, the judges will be seated at their own separate tables at least 6 feet apart.

Some movie updates — “The Batman” is being pushed back from October 2021 to March 2022, but because we can’t wait a minute too long for our beloved Keanu, “Matrix 4” is being bumped up from April 2022 to December 2021! As of now, “Wonder Woman 1984” is still set to open Christmas Day this year. And after a bidding war, New Line won the rights to “Super High,” starring Common, Craig Robinson and Andy Samberg. It’s about a special strain of marijuana that gives people superpowers.

YouTube star Tana Mongeau has lost her verification after offering to send nekkid photos to any of her fans who can prove they voted for Joe Biden. She even called it #BootyForBiden. The problem is, buying votes is a felony. Will authorities decide to make Tana an example, or is losing her verification punishment enough?

Mariah Carey tells ALMOST all in her memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey. When a reporter asked her why she didn’t write about her engagement to Australian billionaire James Packer, Mariah said, “If it was a relationship that mattered, it’s in the book. If not, it didn’t occur.” She even confessed that they’d never consummated the relationship! Mariah and James got engaged in January 2016 after dating less than a year. He called it off in October after they had a massive fight on his yacht in Greece, and she sold her 35-carat engagement ring for over $2M.
