New Bachelorette

Bachelorette fans are going to have to strap in for a wholly different ride as things are changing up. Clare Crawley, who was this season’s lead, had her eyes set on one cast member, Dale Moss, from the start, which ultimately defeated the whole purpose of the show. Fans were not quite fond of Crawley’s season and had been calling for a new Bachelorette. According to Entertainment Tonight, she was head-over-heels with Moss and did not pay much attention to the other men prompting the show to bring in the second leading lady, Tayshia Adams. Adams has taken over for Crawley and has begun her quest to finding love. The Bachelorette airs every Tuesday at 7 pm on ABC.


Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis Split

Speaking of love, another Hollywood couple has recently called it quits. This past week Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde announced their split after being engaged for seven years. People Magazine reports that the pair met at an SNL finale party, and started dating in 2011. Sudeikis proposed in early 2013 and the couple went on to have two children together, Otis Alexander, 6, and Daisy Josephine, 4. Despite not being together, they have promised to be there for their young children and continue co-parenting.


Black Panther 2

Following the heartbreaking death of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, many fans have been wondering how the sequel will be made. There had been speculation about the film using a digital double Boseman, however, this will not be the case. In a recent interview with Deadline, the movie’s Executive Producer, Victoria Alonso says, “The sequel to the blockbuster action film will not use a digital double for the late Chadwick Boseman, who played the title role in the first film.” In a show of respect for the actor who passed back in August, the MCU will be going a different route. Black Panther 2 will begin filming in 2021.


Larsa Pippen 

Larsa Pippen has got herself tangled in a knot with the Kardashians. The star and wife of Scottie Pippen might have made herself an enemy of the family after her actions this past week. Pippen spoke to Hollywood Raw about how Kanye is the reason for her tarnished relationship with the sisters. She explained how blocking Kanye West’s number due to his frequent phone calls might have caused him to turn the family against her. Furthermore, she discusses her alleged relationship with Tristan Thompson, Khloe Kardashian’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, claiming that she was “kinda seeing him” before Khloe was. According to Elle magazine, although the Kardashians have not yet given a public response on the situation, they are aware and not amused.
