Online voting for the People’s Choice Awards is going on now through October 23. They’ve added some new categories this year, the New Artist of 2020, the Collaboration Song of 2020 and the Soundtrack Song of 2020. Overall, there are FORTY FOUR categories for you to voice your opinion, and I’m sorry…that’s just way too much. I mean, is it really necessary to have the Comedy Movie, the Action Movie, the Drama Movie, the Family Movie, AND THE Movie of 2020? And they pretty much do that with every acting category, as well. If you have lots of time on your hands, you can vote up to 25 times per category, per day, per method — either on the voting website, Twitter or Xfinity. The awards will be announced live on E! on Sunday, Nov. 15.

They’ve conquered TikTok and now they’re taking on the world of podcasting. Sisters Charli and Dixie D’Amelio have a new weekly podcast and the first episode of “Charli and Dixie: 2 Chix” drops Oct. 8th. Fans are promised that they will “really discover who Charli & Dixie D’Amelio are as individuals, daughters, sisters, friends and stars.” The D’Amelio sisters have a combined 200M followers, with Charlie earning an estimated $4M and Dixie earning close to $3M in the last year.

Will this be the most dramatic season of “The Bachelorette” ever? It’s sure looking like it. At age 39, Clare Crawley was finally having her moment in the sun, as the oldest Bachelorette in the show’s history. But then everything got shut down because of COVID-19 and then when things did get going, we heard Clare locked herself in her room and refused to come out because she fell in love and didn’t want to play anymore. That’s when producers scrambled and brought in fan favorite Tayshia Adams to replace Clare. But Reality Steve says don’t think this was all some spontaneous thing. He claims that before production even started, producers had planned on Clare leaving the season early to make it more dramatic. Steve said once Clare showed she was feeling one guy in particular, the producers started planting the seed in her head to leave early. Steve says, “Did Clare know? No. Did the guys know? No. But production sure as hell did.” In fact, Steve says Tayshia was already in quarantine at the filming location 9 days after Clare’s first night of filming.

Tekashi 6ix9ine gained some weight during quarantine, going up to 200 pounds and vowing not to return to Instagram until he reaches his goal weight of 150. But according to The Shade Room, Tekashi overdid it with over-the-counter weight loss pills and coffee and ended up in the hospital earlier this week. He’s doing better now, and hopefully dieting more responsibly!

Nicki Minaj has welcomed her baby! We don’t know a name. We don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl. All we know is the baby was born on Wednesday and Nicki and her husband Kenneth “Zoo” Petty have themselves a little Libra baby.
