Today’s Leaks from Prince Harry’s Memoir

New SNL shows… Lisa Rinna is OUT… Music video shooting… New music updates… and Today’s leaks from Prince Harry’s memoir

In hosting news — When SNL returns on Jan. 21, Aubrey Plaza will be hosting for the first time ever. Aubrey is one of the stars in Season 2 of “The White Lotus” as well as “Emily the Criminal,” which is now streaming on Netflix. Her musical guest will be Sam Smith, who’s making his third appearance on SNL. The following week, Michael B. Jordan will make his SNL hosting debut. He’s promoting “Creed III,” which comes out March 3. Not only does Michael star in the movie, he directed it. Michael’s musical guest is also making his first appearance on SNL — Lil Baby. His latest album, “It’s Only Me,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Trevor Noah wrapped up his gig hosting “The Daily Show” last month. No decision on who will be the permanent host yet, but Comedy Central has announced the upcoming lineup of guest hosts. Leslie Jones kicks things off on Jan. 17, followed by Wanda Sykes (Jan. 23), D.L. Hughley (Jan. 30), Chelsea Handler (Feb. 6), and Sarah Silverman (Feb. 13). Dates regarding the other upcoming hosts, Al Franken, John Leguizamo, Hasan Minhaj, Kal Penn, and Marlon Wayans will be announced later on.

As Lisa Vanderpump tweeted, “Ding dong.” Those who keep up with these things know she was throwing shade at Lisa Rinna, who announced that she will not be coming back to “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” Bravo graciously allowed Lisa to pretend this was her decision. She released a statement saying, “This is the longest job I have held in my 35 year career and I am grateful to everyone at Bravo and all those involved in the series. It has been a fun eight-year run and I am excited for what is to come!” Lisa’s contract did expire at the end of last season, but Kathy Hilton basically gave Bravo an ultimatum, saying if the current cast came back — and by that she meant Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne — she was done. It looks like Bravo chose Kathy.

French Montana and New Orleans rapper Rob49 were at DJ Khaled’s soul food restaurant in Miami last night to shoot a music video, but it all fell apart when a literal shooting broke out. At least 10 people were injured when shots were fired in the parking lot. A bunch of people had shown up to watch the video shoot. An eyewitness told reporters that a man in the crowd was robbed of his keys and wallet, and the next thing he knew he was hearing gunshots. He said, “It was like at least 13, 14, 15 gunshots. It sounded like an assault rifle.” At least 10 people are injured, with one reportedly in critical condition. According to several social media posts, French’s bodyguard is fighting for his life. Security ushered French safely away from the scened, however Rob49 reportedly was shot. No arrests had been made as of this morning. The CBS affiliate reported that law enforcement will be going through surveillance tapes around the restaurant as well as all the videos posted on social media to track down the gunman.

On NYE, Miley Cyrus announced her new single called “Flowers” will drop on Jan. 13, and now she’s announced that her 8th studio album — “Endless Summer Vacation” — will be released on March 10. Meantime, a Taylor Swift fan account tweeted a screenshot of four new songs Taylor reportedly registered that will be included on the re-recording of her “Speak Now” album. The titles are “Drama Queen,” “Better Off,” “Castles Crumbling,” and “Bother Me.” The songs are reportedly from Taylor’s vault.

Prince Harry’s memoir “Spare” comes out on Tuesday. That same night, he will appear on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” A TON of excerpts have already been released online. Besides describing all the ways he and Meghan have been wronged by the Royal Family, Harry also talked about a lot of his “firsts.” For instance, when he was 17, Harry was on a hunting trip when he tried cocaine. He wrote, “It wasn’t much fun, and it didn’t make me particularly happy, as it seemed to make everyone around me, but it did make me feel different, and that was the main goal. To feel. To be different. I was a seventeen-year-old willing to try almost anything that would alter the pre-established order.” He also described his first time “doing laundry” as being “a humiliating episode with an older woman who liked macho horses and who treated me like a young stallion.”
