ABC Had "Multiple Instances" With Roseanne Prior to Firing

So we were all kind of under the impression that Roseanne Barr's firing came out of nowhere from ABC, meaning that she sent her tweet and that's all it took. BUT -- the President of ABC says there were multiple instances between Roseanne and the network before they fired her. ABC's president said that it wasn't that hard to pull the plug on TV's number one show because it felt like a line had been crossed and they needed to stand by their values as a company. She said it was a swift decision and there wasn't much debate about it within the company. They had been asking Roseanne to keep her tweets focusing on the show and not let other things eclipse the show, but her tweet was so egregious that they were just done.

Schools Closing Early for OTRII Tour 

This is amazing. In South Carolina, Jay Z & Beyonce's On the Run II tour is expected to bring so much traffic that some schools along the route are closing school early to avoid it. They think the busses will get caught in the traffic if they don't. 

 

Ariana's Carpool Karaoke Date is Set

Cardi B's Blue Hair is in Honor of her Lambo

In case you haven't seen Cardi B lately, she's dyed her hair a neon blue color. And if you're wondering why… it's because of her blue Lamborghini. She apparently wanted to match the color of the car, so she worked with her stylist to get just the right shade. 

 

HGTV Wants to Work with Lance Bass 

Oh boy… seems like Drew and Jonathan Scott are going to have something to do with the remodeling of the Brady Bunch House that HGTV bought -- the house that Lance Bass was told was his by that realtor. ANYWAY… Jonathan reached out to Lance on social and said "would LOVE to work with you. This is such an iconic home and it really played an important part of my childhood reinforcing strong family values." HGTV reached out to him as well! 

 

Brad Pitt Files Court Docs 

It's getting worse. Brad Pitt now has filed court documents to refute what Angelina said about him not paying meaningful child support. His lawyers say that he's paid more than $1.3M in bills, and loaned her $8M to help buy her current home. They also allege that last week in court, Angie had no problem at all with child support and is using this request for a new child support hearing simple to increase conflict and manipulate the media. 

 

Aerosmith Van is Found in Mass 

A van that Aerosmith toured in during the 70s was found by a dude who lives in Chesterfield Mass. He contacted the History Channel show American Pickers, and they determined that it indeed did belong to Aerosmith because they asked one of the founding members who confirmed it. The American Pickers people paid $25k for it. 

 

Seth Rogen Went #1 in a Bottle in Tom Cruise's Driveway

Seth Rogen was on Seth Meyers' show last night and told this great story about how, the first time he was meeting him, he actually drove to meet Tom at his house… and he really had to go number one. So he pulled over on Tom's long, winding driveway and went #1 in a Snapple bottle. LOL

 

LiLo Makes Controversial #MeToo Comments

OH BOY. Lindsay Lohan gave an interview the other day that no one really cared about but it's making headlines now because people are realizing what she said about the #MeToo movement. She said that she didn't personally have any experience with it (which is totally understandable). HOWEVER. Then she said "I'm going to really hate myself for saying this, but I think by women speaking against all these things, it makes them look weak when they are very strong. You have these girls who come out, who don't even know who they are, who do it for the attention. That is taking away from the fact that it happened." Sure, that's true -- the women who lie about their experiences like this have a special place in hell reserved for them. But let's be REALLY CLEAR: speaking up against your abuser does not make you WEAK, it makes you INCREDIBLY STRONG. This girl needs to shut it.
