Felicity Huffman is remorseful… Netflix broke a record… Jonah Hill turns down gig… Nicki Minaj has jokes… and Miley Cyrus & Cody Simpson got tattoos together
Felicity Huffman checked in to federal prison on Tuesday to begin serving her 14-day sentence for paying someone to change her daughter’s SAT scores. But as it turns out, she’ll only have to serve 13 days. The day that Felicity was initially arrested at her home, taken to the police station and booked, counted as one day of her sentence. And if you are questioning whether or not she’s remorseful, one of her fellow inmates told TMZ that Felicity has been non-stop crying since she checked in.
Netflix released “Stranger Things 3” on July 4th. Netflix announced yesterday that in its first four weeks of release, this season has been watched 64M times, setting a new record for most viewed Netflix Original. The previous record was held by “The Umbrella Academy” with 45M views in its first four weeks. For Netflix, a “view” is based on someone watching at least 70 percent of an episode or feature film.
Deadline is reporting that negotiations fell apart and Jonah Hill is no longer in talks to join the cast of “The Batman.” Last month, we heard Jonah was being considered for either Riddler or Penguin, but they were leaning more towards Riddler. But with Jonah out of the running, producers are now aggressively searching to fill those two villain roles.
NOT FUNNY, Nicki Minaj. She told Entertainment Tonight — very matter-of-factly, I might add — that she and Adele were not only working on an “epic song,” but that they’d already shot the music video. Everyone was THRILLED. News spread like wildfire on all the entertainment and gossip sites. But Nicki is claiming it was all a joke and that we are basically too stupid to get it. She tweeted, “Omg guys. I thought everyone could clearly see I was being sarcastic. ” Minaj tweeted with screenshots of multiple reports that she would be working with the “Hello” singer. “S***! Now I have to go to Adele’s studio & steal some files. Who’s in the UK? I got a job for you.”
Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson continue their bathroom selfie show. After getting tattoos together — Miley got one on the back of her right arm of a dagger piercing a heart with the words “Rock N Roll Heart” and Cody got a skull and crossbones with a grim reaper’s scythe on his upper right chest — they stood in front of a mirror, Miley thrust her hand down the front of Cody’s pants, and CLICK. And tomorrow Cody will release a new song inspired by Miley called “Golden Thing.”
