Hallmark Channel Monopoly goes on sale… Joker’s journey… Lori Loughlin likely to cop a plea…Miley Cyrus is being criticized… and Nicki Minaj is married!
This Friday, the Hallmark Christmas movies begin!! Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas includes 24 new movies, including a couple about Hannukah, while Hallmark Movies and Mysteries’ Miracle of Christmas event has another 16 new movies. (I’ll be honest, I never switch to their Mysteries channel…) But not only can you watch all the Hallmark Christmas movies wearing your official Hallmark Christmas Movie-watching pajamas, sweatshirts and socks, you can also watch Hallmark Christmas movies while playing Hallmark Channel MONOPOLY!!! This is also being released on Friday and this is a MUST HAVE for fans of all things good. Two to six players can play, choosing playing pieces that represent common themes from the Christmas movies, like the ice skates or the engagement ring. Instead of buying houses and hotels, you can buy inns and cottages. Instead of Chance and Community Chest cards, there are Home and Family cards. This thing will sell for $40 and it’s worth every penny!!
“Joker” has been in theaters for less than a month, but it’s on track to becoming the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time. The current record is held by 2016’s “Deadpool.” That movie has earned $783M worldwide. But as of this past Sunday, “Joker” is up to $737.5M and it expected to ultimately come close to hitting $1B.
Lori Loughlin may not go to trial after all. Remember when prosecutors told Lori and her husband Mossimo that they had one chance to strike a plea deal or suffer the consequences? Lori and Mossimo decided to take their chances in court. Meantime, Felicity Huffman threw herself on the mercy of the court. While prosecutors were shooting for a one year prison sentence, Felicity only got 14 days. Well, THAT was embarrassing. So now TMZ’s sources say prosecutors are open to giving Lori another shot at a plea deal because they’d rather not risk being embarrassed by another lenient sentence. At this point, Lori and her husband face up to a maximum of 40 years in prison for paying a $500K bribe to get their two daughters into USC.
On her IG Live Sunday night, Miley Cyrus said, “I always thought I had to be gay because I thought all guys were evil…” and went on to say that it’s not true because she found Cody Simpson. A lot of people were upset that she was apparently throwing shade at Liam Hemsworth, but even more people were upset that Miley insinuated that being gay is a choice. She has now apologized, saying, “…Let me be clear. YOU don’t CHOOSE your sexuality. You are born as you are. It has always been my priority to protect the LGBTQ community I am part of.” She did not apologize for shading Liam.
Miley Cyrus is being criticized for advising women they “don’t have to be gay” since “there are good men out there.” https://t.co/SrIsAyPGIf pic.twitter.com/kt6gss4Mko— Complex (@Complex) October 21, 2019
She said she didn’t want a big wedding and apparently, she meant it! Through a simple IG video, Nicki Minajannounced she and Kenneth “Zoo” Petty are now husband and wife. Her video shows matching “Mr. and Mrs.” coffee mugs next to a white baseball cap with “Bride” stitched in gold and a black baseball cap with “Groom” stitched in white. She captioned it with bride and groom emojis, a weepy emoji, prayer hands and a pink ribbon, followed by “Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19.” And just as short and sweet as the video are the comments from her celebrity IG friends. Christina Aguilera put it most succinctly, “Congrats queen!”
