‘Brady Bunch’ house up for sale… Spoiler warning for Flash movie… Britney Spears has reunited with her mother… Taylor Swift reveals collab with Ice Spice… and Tina Turner dies at 83Listen to “Showbiz – May 25, 2023” on Spreaker.
The Brady Bunch house is back on the market. The last time it was for sale was back in 2018, when HGTV outbid Lance Bass for it. Things got kind of ugly, but then HGTV asked Lance to produce a series called “A Very Brady Renovation,” where they made the inside of the house look just like it did in the original 70s show. After spending $3.5M to buy it, HGTV paid another $2M or so for the renovations. Now it’s on the market for $5.5M. Whatever it ends up going for, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Turn Up! Fight Hunger initiative.

SPOILER ALERTS!!! But it’s not my fault. The director of “The Flash” just spoiled a major cameo, but he was so excited about it, he apparently couldn’t help himself. So here’s the spoiler………Director Andy Muschietti revealed that Superman will be played by……………Nicolas Cage! This comes almost 25 years after Nicolas ALMOST played Superman in Tim Burton’s “Superman Lives.” You can go online to see video of Nicolas doing a costume try-on for Tim, trying to figure out which Superman suit would allow him the most freedom of movement. That movie was ultimately scrapped…But here we are now and Nic finally gets to play the Man of Steel — even if it’s only for a hot minute — thanks to Andy Muschietti. The director said, “Nic was absolutely wonderful. Although the role was a cameo, he dove into it. I dreamt all my life to work with him. I hope I can work with him again soon.”
Nicolas Cage never got to play the iconic role 25 years ago, though he managed to try on the signature costume. https://t.co/2Bdlh45A59— The Star (@staronline) May 25, 2023
For the first time in YEARS, Britney Spears spent some one-on-one time with her mom, Lynne. According to TMZ, Lynne flew into LA and went straight to the home of Britney’s manager Cade Hudson. From there, she took an Uber to Britney’s home. TMZ reported that Britney and Lynne have been communicating by text recently and that Britney knew her mom was planning to come visit, she just didn’t know when. However, Britney was receptive enough to let Lynne inside and they spent about 30 minutes catching up, with Sam Asghari there to supervise. After Lynne left, Britney and Sam got in her car and she drove around for a bit before they returned home. Britney and Lynne have come a long way over the past few months. Back in October, Lynne tried to reach out to Britney through social media, asking her daughter to unblock. Britney ripped into her, cussing her out and praying her mom, the rest of her backstabbing family, and all the doctors who messed with her mind would burn in hell.

Tina Turner passed away yesterday at the age of 83. Her publicist said Tina died peacefully at her home near Zurich, Switzerland, after a long illness caused by intestinal cancer. For several years Tina reportedly suffered from poor health, including a stroke and kidney failure, which required a transplant. Tina made her last public appearance in November 2019 at the Broadway opening of “Tina: The Tina Turner Musical.” And then in 2021, she posted her photo to Instagram to promote her documentary “Tina” and that was the last image we had of her. She spent her final years with her husband, German music executive Erwin Bach, living in a chateau overlooking Lake Zurich. Tina was born in Brownsville, Tennessee. When she was only 16, she began singing jazz in nightclubs and at 18, she joined Ike Turner’s Kings of Rhythm as a backup singer, which quickly became the Ike & Tina Turner Revue. After years of abuse, Tina finally escaped Ike’s abuse and slowly began to piece together her life and solo career. Things really took off for her with her 1984 album “Private Dancer,” featuring the title track, “Better Be Good To Me,” and “What’s Love Got to Do With It,” which was Tina’s first and only No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100. And the following year, Tina played Aunty Entity in “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome,” which featured her hit song “We Don’t Need Another Hero.” Throughout her career, Tina sold 200M albums and won 12 Grammys — 8 competitive, 3 Hall of Fame and 1 Lifetime Achievement. In 1986, Tina was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And she’s been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame — in 1991 with her former husband Ike and in 2021 as a solo artist. Tina had four sons. At age 18, she had her first son with the saxophonist for the Kings of Rhythm. When she married Ike four years later, he adopted Tina’s son, she adopted two of Ike’s sons, and they had one son together. Tina was preceded in death by her two biological sons. She also leaves behind her husband, Erwin. They began dating in 1985 and ten years later, she moved to Switzerland to be with him. After 27 years together, the couple were married in 2013, which is the same year she gave up her US citizenship and became an official Swiss citizen.

Her career spanned decades — and her personal story of resilience inspired generations, which she opened up to @GayleKing about in 2018: “I lived through it with no blame.” pic.twitter.com/JKo5MROt4b
