Shia LaBeouf almost starred in Call Me By Your Name… Michelle Obama joins ‘Black-ish’… Ariana Grande for r.e.m. beauty… Dorit Kemsley held at gunpoint… and Yolanda Hadid claims Zayn Malik struck herListen to “Showbiz – Oct 29, 2021” on Spreaker.
Timothée Chalamet is starring in the current number one movie at the box office, “Dune.” That may or may not change after this weekend. But back in 2017, Timothée shot to A-lister status after starring in “Call Me By Your Name,” playing a 17-year-old who falls in love with a 24-year-old man, played by Armie Hamer. But the screenwriter of that movie wrote in his new memoir that Armie’s role almost went to Shia LaBeouf. James Ivory writes, “Shia came to read for us in New York with Timothée…and [the director] and I had been blown away. The reading had been sensational; they made a very convincing hot couple. But then, Shia was dropped. He had had some bad publicity. He’d fought with his girlfriend and (had some run-ins with police). (The director) would not call him, or his agent. I emailed Shia to offer reassurance, but then (the director) cast Armie Hammer and never spoke to, or of, Shia again.” So basically, they went with a potential cannibal, but they had no way of knowing that at the time. In fact, everyone involved with “Call Me By Your Name” wanted to make a sequel, until the accusations against Armie came out…
The eighth and final season of “black-ish” airs next year on ABC, and they’re going out with a bang. Former First Lady Michelle Obama is going to make a guest appearance. We don’t know any details other than she will be playing herself. This isn’t Mrs. Obama’s first sitcom, though. She also made a guest appearance on “Parks and Recreation.” And who can forget the First Lady random dancing with Sam and Carly on “iCarly”?
#blackish is going all out for the final season! We are honored to have trailblazer @MichelleObama join us as an upcoming guest star. pic.twitter.com/UhHAxamlpL— black-ish (@blackishabc) October 28, 2021
Just in time for the holidays, Ariana Grande is releasing her highly-anticipated makeup line, r.e.m. beauty. Ariana made the announcement on her Instagram, posting a photo of herself dressed like the iconic Barbarella from the 1968 sci-fi movie of the same name, but instead of a space gun, she’s holding a giant lipstick gun. The caption said simply, “november @rembeauty.” The website is the same photo, with what must be the slogan, “where your dreams become reality.” But that’s it. Based on the Instagram account, it looks like the products will be released in four “chapters,” with the first one titled “ultraviolet.”
Did Kim Kardashian teach us nothing! When you flaunt your wealth, evil people may come take it. And that’s what happened to “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Dorit Kemsley. While her husband PK was away in London, two men broke into her home a little before 11pm Wednesday night. She awoke to them standing at the foot of her bed. HORRIFYING. According to the “Daily Mail,” the men grabbed Dorit as she begged the, “Don’t hurt my babies! Don’t kill me! I’m a mother!” And one of the men apparently told the other, “Kill her.” Thankfully, that didn’t happen. But for the next 20 minutes, they ransacked the house stealing a lot of Dorit’s jewelry and designer purses. The robbers reportedly never entered the bedrooms of Dorit’s two children, 7-year-old Jagger and 5-year-old Phoenix. Like I said, this happened late Wednesday night, and filming for the next season of RHOBH was set to begin the next day! Paparazzi caught pictures of several fellow Housewives showing up at Dorit’s house yesterday, but it’s unclear if they filmed for the show or just gave their support. This is actually the second time Dorit’s home was robbed. Back in 2018, her former home in Beverly Hills was robbed when it was on the market. It was apparently targeted by a robber who went to rich people open houses.
TMZ broke the news first yesterday. Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik broke up. Was it because her mom accused Zayn of hitting her? Or did the alleged incident happen after Gigi and Zayn broke up? Either way, Yolanda Hadid claims Zayn hit her and yesterday, he issued a statement to TMZ adamantly denying it. UPDATE!! TMZ got hold of court documents and found out that Zayn has been charged with 4 criminal offenses of harassment. While one of the documents says Zayn pleaded guilty to one charge, court officials told TMZ Zayn actually pleaded no contest. According to the documents, Zayn was at the Pennsylvania home he shares with Gigi on Sept. 29 when he got into a huge argument with Yolanda. Zayn allegedly called her despicable names and told her to stay away from the daughter he shares with Gigi. That’s when Zayn allegedly shoved Yolanda into a dresser. Zayn still denies any physical contact. However, on Wednesday, Zayn pleaded no contest and was fined. He’s now on 90 days probation for each of the four counts, totaling 360 days. He also must complete an anger management class and a domestic violence program. He’s also not allowed to contact Yolanda or the security guard. (Whose security guard?) If Zayn fulfills all the requirements, a judge could terminate probation after 6 months.
