Pat Sajak faces backlash… Chris Noth reacts to rumor… Vanessa Bryant calls out Meek Mill… Highest debuting solo track by a female rapper… and Shailene Woodley confirms her engagement to Aaron RodgersListen to “Showbiz – Feb 23, 2021” on Spreaker.
Pat Sajak can be a little sarcastic from time to time, but he crossed the line on Monday’s “Wheel of Fortune” when he made fun of a contestant’s lisp. During his introduction, it was obvious to everyone that contestant Chris Brimble has a speech impediment. But when Chris finished describing what he does for a living, instead of saying, “I see,” Pat said, “I thee.” Chris was a good sport about it and even laughed a little bit, but Pat got destroyed on Twitter. As of this morning, Pat hasn’t addressed the backlash, but his most recent Twitter posts are pretty interesting. On Feb. 16, Pat tweeted, “Criticizing others is so much easier than examining our own lives…and so much less productive.” He followed that up the next day with, “How nice for those who have lived such exemplary lives that they can express glee when others have their lives ruined by a mistake, real or perceived.” By the way, Chris went on to win $12,250.
Page Six reported last week that Mr. Big will not be part of the “Sex and the City” reboot, which upset a lot of people because HOW can you do this show without Mr. Big???? When a fan asked Chris Noth about it on Instagram, he responded, ““Well, if Page Six says it … it must be true” with a winking emoji. Sounds to me like Big is back!
Meek Mill’s new song “Don’t Worry” featuring Lil Baby was leaked and one of the lyrics has a lot of people upset, including Kobe Bryant’s widow, Vanessa. The line says, “If I ever lack I’m goin’ out with my choppa, it be another Kobe.” Vanessa addressed Meek directly on Instagram, saying, “Dear @meekmill, I find this line to be extremely insensitive and disrespectful. Period. I am not familiar with any of your music, but I believe you can do better than this. If you are a fan, fine, there’s a better way to show your admiration for my husband. This lacks respect and tact.” It was January of last year when Kobe, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and nine others died in a helicopter crash.
Cardi B’s debut album “Invasion of Privacy” came out way back in 2018, and it’s still setting records. Back in August, it had been on the album charts for 124 weeks, making it the longest-charting album by a female rapper in the history of the Billboard 200. And now, according to Chart Data, “Invasion of Privacy” has been on the charts for 150 weeks, making Cardi the first female rapper to spend that long on the Billboard 200.
Congrats to @iamcardib as #UP is now the highest debuting solo track by a female rapper on the Hot 100 this century, since Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing) ⚜️

During her appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Shailene Woodley confirmed she’s engaged to Aaron Rodgers, but she says it’s old news. She told Jimmy, “Everybody right now is freaking out over it and we’re like, ‘Yeah, we’ve been engaged for a while.’” Shailene said she never thought she’d be engaged to someone who throws balls for a living. To her, he’s just this nerdy guy who loves “Jeopardy!”
