Obamas Coming to Netflix?

The Obamas are reportedly in very early stages of inking a deal with Netflix. They're likely going to produce a series of high-profile shows, according to TMZ. They're going to be highlighting inspirational stories and Barack might moderate conversations about issues that were at the forefront when he was in the White House like health care and climate change. 

 

Aly Raisman Makes Survivor Swimsuit for Charity 

Aly Raisman continues to kick ass. Yesterday for International Women's Day, she released a swimsuit with Aerie American Eagle that says "survivor" on it. And 100% of the proceeds will go to an organization called "Darkness to Light," which "empowers adults to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to a child's sexual abuse." You'll remember she stood up to Larry Nassar in court, who was convinced of assaulting many athletes, including Aly herself. 

 

Demi Lovato Left the Met Gala to go to AA 

Very cool. Demi Lovato opened up to Billboard Magazine and said that when she was at the Met Gala, it was really cliquey and a celebrity - she didn't say who - was being a "complete bitch." It made Demi so uncomfortable that she wanted to drink, but instead she left the gala early and went to an AA meeting. She said she did change her clothes, but she didn't remove her jewelry. She was wearing millions of dollars of diamonds in an AA meeting, and she said "I related more to the homeless people in that meeting who struggled with the same struggles that I deal with than the people at the Met Gala." So cool of her to be so open. PS, People Magazine is reporting that Nicki Minaj is the "complete bitch" -- read here

 

Francia Raisa Said Selena Gomez Broke an Artery 

WOAH. Francia Raisa, who is Selena Gomez' BFF and gave her a kidney last year, revealed to W Magazine that Selena actually broke an artery as a result of the transplant. They had to take her back into emergency surgery to get a vein in her leg to build a new artery so that Francia's kidney would stay in place in Selena's body. Unreal.

The Rock Celebrates IWD2018 

The Rock celebrated International Women's Day yesterday by chatting with his two-year-old daughter. She's the same one who received medical treatment last weekend so it's so nice to see her happy and healthy. 

Girl power. To every woman out there ‘round the world - all ages and races - I proudly stand by your side to always honor, protect and respect. Especially, the loves of my life at home. Now if I can just get Jazzy to say the daddy is the most handsome, brilliant, sexiest man alive part, then we all gonna be cool. #MyAnchors #InternationalWomensDay
