Roseanne Reboot WITHOUT Roseanne is a Go

Welp, the Roseanne reboot is all set without Roseanne. ABC reached a settlement with her, and she will not have financial or creative stake in the new sitcom which has a working title of The Connors. All of the main characters minus Roseanne will be back, and it'll be on Tuesday nights at 8p on ABC, premiering this fall. Roseanne released a statement: "I regret the circumstances that have caused [this]. I agreed to the settlement in order that 200 jobs of beloved cast and crew could be saved, and I wish the best for everyone involved."


Commoners Want to Remake The Last Jedi

Blake Shelton Admits Relationship Started as Rebound

Blake Shelton is talking about his relationship with Gwen Stefani, saying that they both thought it was a rebound type of situation since both were going through bad divorces when they got together.

Demi Lovato Releases "Sober" 

Demi Lovato released a song yesterday called Sober. In it, she sings about not being sober anymore. It's not entirely clear if this was written about her experience in the past, or if she's revealing that she's no longer sober after 6 years. Regardless, it breaks my heart.

Even fellow celebrities are getting tired of seeing Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson flirt on social media. He posted a picture of her yesterday with the caption "what the actual bleep" and the heart eye emoji. Ariana commented "i love you" and Pete responded "i love you more tho." So Seth Rogen saw it and just commented "guys seriously." Pete wrote back "when ur getting married to the hottest girl in the world you tell me how you'd act."
