Travis Barker Diagnosed With Pancreatitis

Elvis Presley’s abandoned childhood home for sale… Season 2 of Obi-Wan Kenobi… The next Bond movie… Cameron Diaz to “un-retire”… and Travis Barker diagnosed with pancreatitis

I’m surprised it’s not on some historical register, but the abandoned childhood home of Elvis Presley is for sale. The home in Tupelo, Mississippi, was originally expected to be demolished, but someone saw the potential here and decided to put it up for auction. The house is 1260-square-feet with 3 bedrooms. Vernon and Gladys Presley lived there from 1943-1944, and it’s just around the corner from the home where Elvis was born. They tried to sell it two years ago, but the pandemic messed that up. They’re going to try to auction it off again on Aug. 14. The house is expected to go for between $30K-$50K, but there’s a catch. The whole thing has been dismantled and all the original pieces are stored in a trailer. So if you win, you have to piece the home back together, but you get to build it wherever you want.

The Disney+ “Obi-Wan Kenobi” was always intended to be a limited, 6-episode, one-and-done season. But could that change? Both Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen say they’re down for a second season. Ewan told British GQ, “I really hope we do another. If I could do one of these every now and again, I’d just be happy about it.” Hayden says, “Same same.” He is very interested in coming back as Darth Vader for a second season of “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” but he’s also cool with having his own spinoff series.

After 15 years and 5 movies, Daniel Craig is DONE playing James Bond. Now producers are letting us know what to expect moving forward. Barbara Broccoli said it will be at least two years before they start filming the next movie, but they haven’t even begun the process of finding the next actor to play him. Fans have been throwing out their suggestions, like Idris Elba, Robert Pattinson, Austin Butler, Tom Hardy, Regé-Jean Page, Henry Golding, Jacob Elordi, Michael B. Jordan, Michael Fassbender, Tom Holland, Tom Hiddleston, Henry Cavill, Harry Styles… I could go on!!!!! But Barbara said, “Nobody’s in the running. We’re working out where to go with him, we’re talking that through. There isn’t a script and we can’t come up with one until we decide how we’re going to approach the next film because, really, it’s a reinvention of Bond. We’re reinventing who he is and that takes time.”

Jamie Foxx tweeted this big surprise yesterday: “Cameron I hope you aren’t mad I recorded this, but no turning back now. Had to call in the GOAT to bring back another GOAT. @CameronDiaz and I are BACK IN ACTION – our new movie with @NetflixFilm. Production starting later this year!!” Jamie posted the completely unplanned and not-at-all scripted phone call he made to Cameron, trying to calm her nerves because she’s not sure how to handle coming out of retirement. Then he three-way calls with Tom Brady — the G.O.A.T. — to give Cameron advice on how to un-retire. If you listen to it, you’ll be very impressed by Tom’s acting skills. He actually sounds more natural than Jamie and Cameron! Netflix announced that Jamie is the one who convinced Cameron to be part of “Back in Action,” which is her first role since their 2014 movie “Annie.” Other than the title, all we know is that it’s an action-comedy.

Travis Barker reportedly was suffering from extreme stomach pain that got so bad he could barely walk. Kourtney Kardashian drove him to the closest hospital, but doctors there determined his condition was serious enough to have him taken by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai. TMZ has learned that Travis was diagnosed with pancreatitis, and doctors believe it was triggered by a recent colonoscopy. Pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas. Symptoms include intense stomach pain, nausea and vomiting. Us Weekly’s sources say Travis is “getting the best treatment and hopefully will be out of the hospital in the next 24-72 hours.” The source also said Kourtney hasn’t left his side.
