DWTS spoiler… Ashley Graham has a Barbie… Joe Simpson diagnosed with cancer… Dwayne Johnson is the Sexiest Man Alive… and Wanda Sykes booed off stage after anti-Trump remarks
SPOILER ALERT: “Dancing With the Stars” sent another couple home last night — “Little Women L.A.” star Terra Jole and her partner Sasha Farber. Host Tom Bergeron told Terra, “When people ask me in future interviews who are my favorite people we’ve had on the show, your name is on that list now, my dear.” Next week is the final week of competition. The final four celebrities fighting for the mirror ball trophy are Laurie Hernandez, Calvin Johnson, Jana Kramer and James Hinchcliffe.
The eliminated couple is announced on Dancing with the Stars’ Season 23 Semi-Finals!
Plus-sized model Ashley Graham now has her very own Barbie! The doll was unveiled at Glamour’s Women of the Year summit in LA this week. Ashely said, “We need to work together to redefine the global image of beauty and continue to push for a more inclusive world. I’m thrilled Barbie has not only evolved their product, but also has continued to honor women who are pushing boundaries. It’s an honor to be immortalized in plastic.” Ashley said she was very much involved in how her Barbie looked. She said, “She had to have her thighs touch. No ands, ifs or buts about it. And I asked for cellulite, but obviously plastic and cellulite don’t go hand in hand.”
We’ve lost touch with him, but back in the day, Joe Simpson was a good friend of our show. We were very sad to hear that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer two months ago. But the good news is that he has had surgery and is heading back to work in his new career as a photographer. People magazine reports that Joe is feeling much better and is very optimistic about his future. He must be doing well because he’s heading to Japan to shoot a magazine cover and work on some campaigns.
People magazine has named Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the Sexiest Man Alive for 2016. People started doing this Sexiest Man bit back in 1985 and Mel Gibson received the honor of being the first. Since then, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Johnny Depp and Richard Gere have received the honor twice. Last year’s winner was David Beckham. Before that, it was Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine, and Channing Tatum. But remember the protests outside People’s office when Bradley was named the Sexiest Man Alive of 2011 and not Ryan Gosling?
Comedians may consider leaving politics out of their routines for a while. Remember before the election when Amy Schumer was booed and about 200 people walked out of her show in Tampa, Florida? Now post-election, Wanda Sykes got booed during the 22nd annual Comics Come Home fundraiser in Boston. Wanda blasted Donald Trump, saying, “I am certain this is not the first time we’ve elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president. He ain’t the first one. He’s just the first confirmed one.” The crowd started booing, and Wanda responded by cursing them out and flipping them off. After she left the stage, fellow performer Denis Leary told the crowd that Wanda deserved their respect.
