ABC’s summer series… Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna pick godparents… Kanye West’s former bodyguard tells all… John Legend stands up for Chrissy Teigen… and Prince’s former wives hold exclusive private memorial service
ABC has ordered a six-episode summer series called “Greatest Hits” that will be hosted by the recently maligned Arsenio Hall and country singer Kelsea Ballerini. The show will feature current and classic artists performing songs from the 80s, 90s and 2000s. The show promises solos, never-before-seen duets and tributes. And hey! If it’s not any good, we only have to deal with six weeks of it. “Greatest Hits” kicks off June 30.
RadarOnline.com is reporting that Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have already picked the godparents for their first child. It’s obvious they’ve put just as much thought into this as they have every other major decision they’ve made in the short few months they’ve been together. A source says the couple wants Amber Rose and Scott Disick to be the spiritual influences in their child’s life. Rob tried to fight for his sister Kourtney to be the godmother, but BC objected, saying it would be a little one-sided to have former couple Kourtney and Scott as godparents. Meantime, TMZ is reporting that Kylie Jenner and Tyga have broken up again…this time, for good.
In Touch magazine has an exclusive interview with Kanye West’s former bodyguard Steve Stanulis, who says he first worked for Kanye for 10 days during Fashion Week in February and then another 3 days leading up to the Met Gala. But Steve says he was fired because Kanye thought he was flirting with Kim Kardashian. Steve says he’s worked for a lot of high-end people, but never for someone like Kanye. He recalled one incident that happened during Kanye’s album release, when Kanye had an uncomfortable interaction with two police officers. Steve said, “He had a studio full of people when he was dropping the album and I have two off-duty cops there working, talking quietly among the wildness when (Kanye) walks by them and goes, ‘Can you stop talking while I walk by you?’ And they were like, ‘What?’ This is the type of guy you’re dealing with.” Behind the scenes, Steve says Kanye is “10 times worse than what you see.”
John Legend is sticking up for his wife Chrissy Teigen, who was slammed on social media for daring to leave her one-week-old baby girl at home while she and her hubby went on a dinner date. John tweeted, “Funny there’s no dad-shaming. When both of us go out to dinner, shame both of us so Chrissy doesn’t have to take it all. We’ll split it.”
Prince’s ex-wives Manuela Testolini and Mayte Garcia organized a special memorial service last night at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. Spike Lee told guests another event in Brooklyn will be held on June 7, which would have been Prince’s 57th birthday. But Prince’s six surviving siblings said in a statement last Friday that despite what anyone has said, no public memorial or tribute service has been organize by Prince’s family or reps for Paisley Park.
