Listen to “Showbiz – May 14, 2021” on Spreaker.


Ronnie from MTV’s “Jersey Shore” won’t face any charges in his recent domestic violence case, even though his girlfriend called the police on him and she had bruising on her. Ronnie is on probation for a previous domestic violence charge and could have faced serious jail time. In light of all this, Ronnie announced that he’s stepping away from filming “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.” He said, “After talking to the team at MTV, we have mutually agreed that I will step away from the show while I seek medical treatment for mental health issues that I’ve ignored for too long. My number one goal now is facing my struggles head on. This process will be difficult, but my #1 priority is to get healthy and be the best man and the best father I can for my daughter.”

According to Forbes, Elon Musk’s net worth has plunged roughly $20 billion since hosting “SNL” this past weekend. But don’t worry about him. Elon still has a net worth of $145.5B, making him the third-richest man in the world. Forbes says Elon took a hit because cryptocurrencies and Tesla stock lost a lot of value this week, but he’s largely to blame for that. Back in March, Elon said he could no longer accept bitcoin as payment for Teslas because the digital firepower it takes to mine the coins using heavy-duty computers is a huge strain on the environment. According to “The New Yorker,” one single bitcoin transaction uses the same amount of electricity as the average U.S. household can use in a month.

Chrissy Tiegen finally apologized to Courtney Stodden for bullying her on Twitter a decade ago. Courtney said she hoped the apology was genuine, even though she suspected it may have more to do with Chrissy keeping her Target deal. As it turns out, Chrissy’s line of cookware is no longer sold at Target, but it has nothing to do with her online bullying. A rep for Target told Page Six, “We made the mutual decision in December to no longer carry the cookware line, given our continued focus on brands we develop and that can only be found at Target.” You can still buy Chrissy’s cookware on her own website and through other retail outlets.

Just a few days ago, fresh-out-of-rehab John Mulaney announced he is divorcing his wife of 6 years. Anna Marie Tendler released a statement saying, “I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage. I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery.” Does she still wish him well now that we know he’s already moved on with Olivia Munn?

HBO Max tweeted, “We’re going to need a bigger couch.” It was reported that the “Friends” reunion was filmed over three days back in early April in front of a live audience at the Warner Bros. lot in LA. It will finally be available for your streaming pleasure on May 27. In addition to the six main actors, HBO Max revealed a bunch of special guest appearances, including Lady Gaga, BTS, Justin Bieber, David Beckham, James Corden, Cara Delevingne, Kit Harington, Mindy Kaling, Cindy Crawford….I could go on and on! Also appearing on the reunion special are Reese Witherspoon, who played Rachel’s little sister Jill; Elliott Gould and Christina Pickles, who played Ross and Monica’s parents, Jack and Judy Geller; Maggie Wheeler, who played Chandler’s on again/off again girlfriend Janice; Tom Selleck, who played Monica’s ex, Dr. Richard Burke; Larry Hankin, who played Mr. Heckles, aka the Weird Man, who lived in the apartment downstairs; Thomas Lennon, who played the Vegas dealer Randall who Joey thinks is his “identical hand twin;” and of course, James Michael Tyler, who played Central Perk’s manager, Gunther.
