Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News
Good Omens is reportedly close to a third and final season renewal, but if it happens it will be with a new showrunner.
Tom Bergeron revealed that he ended up leaving Dancing with the Stars because they cast Sean Spicer. He claims he urged them to keep the show apolitical ahead of the 2020 election and felt blindsided when they announced the cast. Good for him.
Cheryl Burke will not be included in an upcoming tribute to Len Goodman on Dancing with the Stars, and people are speculating that it’s because she started a podcast that dishes about the show.
Prime Video has launched a Crunchyroll channel for all you anime fans.
Frances Cobain has married Riley Hawk in a ceremony officiated by Michael Stipe. That’s right: Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s daughter married Tony Hawk’s son in the most 90s-babies wedding ever. Congratulations and the dream of the 90s is alive.
Britney Spears’ memoir came out today, and there is a lot to digest. The biggest story is probably that when she was roughly 18 or 19, she got pregnant by Justin Timberlake. She wanted to keep the baby, but he pressured her to get an abortion, which she did. She also revealed that he cheated on her with another celebrity, which is RICH considering that he built his solo career on the back of the story that she cheated on him, and spent years — YEARS! — slut-shaming her, and making her literally the butt of jokes on SNL, all while she was being controlled and manipulated by her family with the conservatorship.
Britney also says she was fitted with an IUD that she did not want during her conservatorship, and says she only went along with the legal arrangement to have access to her children. She also revealed that she mentioned the conservatorship in an interview in the U.K., but that after the network spoke with her conservators, it was edited out. The whole thing is just awful and I’m happy she’s finally able to tell her story.
Marco Vega, a man hired to be a butler at Dorinda Medley’s Blue Stone Manor during Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip, is suing Bravo, saying the women sexually abused and harassed him. Brandi Glanville, you won’t be shocked to hear, was definitely involved.
Suzanne Somers was fired from Three’s Company after demanding to be paid the same as John Ritter — but went on to make $300 million with the Thighmaster, so good for her.
British writer and director of Love, Actually; Bridget Jones’ Diary; and Notting Hill Richard Curtis says that he is ashamed of how he portrayed women in his films, and for their lack of diversity. The remarkable thing about this story is that a 67-year-old man can admit to the error of his ways.
There’s a strong argument that Sam Levinson stole the entire look and atmosphere of Euphoria from a female artist named Petra Collins. (Which would make her the first female creator he did this to.)
Another woman is suing Danny Elfman for sexual misconduct. He denies the claims.
Sam Underwood, who starred in Fear the Walking Dead, was arrested for felony domestic battery.
Kevin Spacey is receiving a mixed reception in the U.K.: one London cinema dropped his movie premiere while he received a standing ovation at an appearance at the University of Oxford lecture about cancel culture.
Former President Sleazeball allegedly told Melania to put on a bikini and show off for his friends “so all the other guys could get a look at what they were missing” — WHILE HE WAS POTUS. And I don’t want to give Melania any props — y’all know how I feel about these people — but to her credit, Melania reportedly snipped, “I’ll do that when you walk around with me in your bikini.” So good for her?
