In movie news, “A Quiet Place 2” was supposed to come out last March, but it got pushed way back to September 2021. But now it’s been bumped up to this Memorial Day Weekend! John Krasinski said, “They always say good things come to those who wait. Well… I think we’ve waited long enough.” “Fast and the Furious 9” was supposed to be released this Memorial Day Weekend, but now it’s been pushed back for a third time, but just a few weeks to June 25. Also “Minions: The Rise of Gru” — which is the fifth movie in the franchise — has been pushed back an entire year to July 2022.

Michael Strahan might not be buying Chris Harrison’s apology, but Rachel Lindsay is ready to accept it and move on. After Chris went on GMA yesterday to apologize for defending current Bachelor contestant Rachael Kirkconnell and to apologize again for the way he spoke to Rachel Lindsay, Michael said Chris’ apology was only on the surface. He said, “Obviously he’s a man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there’s any meaning behind his words.” Later that day, Rachel was speaking with her fellow “Extra” host Billy Bush — who knows a thing or two about being canceled — and she said she accepted both of Chris’ apologies. Rachel said, “I think it’s important for me to say that because I haven’t really talked about Chris and the statement because I’m not trying to make this a Chris-versus-Rachel. But the fact that, once again, you know — this isn’t the first time he’s apologized to me — he apologized again on GMA today, and I do accept that and I think it’s important for me to say that because we need to move forward.”

Private home videos of Britney Spears at home with her family in Louisiana were leaked to CNN. Recently, Jamie Spears’ attorney Vivian Lee Thoreen did a long interview with CNN, defending her client’s heart and motives after the uproar from the “Framing Britney Spears” documentary. She laid it on pretty thick, describing a beautiful father/daughter relationship and highlighting their time together at the beginning of the Coronavirus lockdown. And then BOOM. CNN said they’d “obtained videos of the family from their two weeks together. In them, the singer is seen riding bikes and playing in the yard alongside her father, mother Lynne Spears, sister Jamie Lynn Spears, and her nieces.” They’re not saying who gave them the videos, but come on…….

The countdown is on for Oprah’s exclusive interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle this Sunday night on CBS. In a preview, Oprah reveals that she actually tried to interview Meghan a few months before the Royal Wedding, but Meghan explained that the Palace shut it down. And while Meghan and Harry are now free to say whatever they want to Oprah, apparently, they’re saying it for free, too! Neither of them is making a dime off this interview, and they’re not asking for a charitable donation, either. Oprah, on the other hand, is getting PAID. Her Harpo Productions has sold the rights to air this interview in 17 countries and all of sub-Saharan Africa.
