Season 2 of the rebooted Real Housewives of New York has begun filming with all the women returning, including Jenna Lyons who was convinced to come back. Page Six says handbag designer Rebecca Minkoff has been filming, as well, but we’re not sure if she’s going to be a full-time Housewife or a “friend of” who pops up from time to time. Rebecca is a longtime Scientologists and sources told Page Six it has made filming some scenes a little uncomfortable.

We are a couple weeks away from the Met Gala, which is traditionally held on the first Monday in May. This year’s theme is “Garden of Time” with Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Hemsworth and Bad Bunny serving as co-chairs. This is a fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and tickets are $50K each. But not just anyone can go — you have to be approved by Anna Wintour. So far this year, Page Six says Anna has approved Gisele Bündchen who may or may not bring her jiu-jitsu instructor boyfriend Joaquim Valente, Rihanna, Kendall Jenner, Olivia Rodrigo, Uma Thurman, Sarah Paulson and Cara Delevingne. And reportedly Killers of the Flower Moon star Lily Gladstone, and The Bear’s Ayo Edebiri.

Ryan Anderson married Gypsy Rose Blanchard while she was in prison for murdering her mother. When she was released, Lifetime’s cameras were following and the footage will be used for an upcoming reality show. But after 3 months as a free woman, Gypsy Rose filed for divorce and a restraining order against Ryan and reconnected with her ex-boyfriend. Ryan turned around and filed his own restraining order, thanked his fans for their support, and said we’ll see how it all plays out on the reality show. Sources have told Page Six that after she and Ryan moved in together, Gypsy Rose discovered her husband is a food hoarder. When she threw away some expired food, it led to a nasty fight that left Gypsy Rose badly shaken. On top of that, Ryan apparently has a terrible snoring problem and becomes a “human furnace” while he sleeps. It was just too much for Gypsy Rose to bear.

It’s been six years and Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan are still trying to negotiate a divorce settlement. Both of moved on romantically. Channing is engaged to Zoe Kravitz and Jenna is engaged to Steve Kazee, with home she shares one child and has another on the way. But — as usual in dragged-out divorces — it’s all about money. In this case, it’s Magic Mike money. Jenna claims the original movie, the two sequels and other related projects were developed and co-financed by Channing during their marriage, yet he’s collected 100 percent of the profits since their split in 2018. Sources say Channing reportedly doesn’t believe she’s entitled to anything once they separated, but has made some offers that Jenna keeps rejecting. Now, it’s going to trial. Court dates have been set for May and July with the trial date set for Dec. 8.

Remember the 2019 movie Yesterday, where this struggling singer/songwriter wakes up one day and discovers he’s the only person in the world who remembers the Beatles, records the songs and becomes super famous? It did okay at the box office, but a lot of people didn’t see it…including Peter Rosza and Conor Woulfe. When these guys saw a trailer for the movie featuring Ana de Armas, they decided to shell out $3.98 to rent it on Amazon Prime. However, they were quite displeased to discover Ana had been edited out. So they spent another $3.98 to watch the director’s cut on Google Play, but were again disappointed that Ana’s scenes had been edited out there, as well. So Peter and Conor sued Universal Pictures for false advertising, filing a class action lawsuit asking for $5M in damages. Last August, a judge dismissed the class action status, meaning only Conor and Peter could move forward with their case, adding that they could only sue to recover the $7.98 they spent in rental fees. Universal Pictures then filed to have their legal fees covered by Conor and Peter, which they calculated to be $672,000. They offered to knock a couple hundred thousand dollars off, and the judge said he would make them agree to just over $126K IF them men offered to settle. Conor and Peter’s attorney said no way. They were willing to fight as long as they had to. Now Variety is reporting that the case has been settled privately. No terms have been disclosed.
