Crap on Celebrities
#CrapOnCelebrities: ABC renewed Roseanne for a second season. Kurt Cobain‘s suicide photos will remain sealed.
ABC said they have four dramas, and four comedies coming. Here are the highlights: They have "The Goldbergs", which is set in the '80s, and "Fresh Off the Boat", which takes place in the '90s. Now, they're adding a "Goldbergs" spin-off called "Schooled", which is also set in the '90s and stars Tim Meadows and Bryan Callen who are playing the same roles they did on "Goldbergs". Plus, there's a new sitcom set in the '70s called "The Kids Are Alright", which is about a large Irish-Catholic family with 10 people under one roof. There's a sitcom called "Single Parents" starring Taran Killam from "Saturday Night Live" as a man who goes to a support group for single parents. Brad Garrett is it in too. In 2019 ABC is debuting "Whiskey Cavalier", which is about an FBI / CIA inter-agency task force” and a legal drama called "The Fix" about a Los Angeles district attorney who loses a high-profile murder trial featuring a celebrity suspect. It was co-created by O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark . . . who kinda has experience with the subject matter.
ABC renewed "Roseanne" for a second season a month ago . . . but at yesterday's press event, the network's president said they expect the show to move "away from politics," and "toward family." She said that's why they wanted to do the "Roseanne" revival . . . to showcase a family that is, quote, "in a different economic status than some of the other family comedies that are on the air." Last night's episode may have revealed what Season Two will be about. Apparently, Roseanne has a secret addiction to prescription painkillers. And it looks like things are going to get worse before they get better. Anyway, the other bigger shows ABC is bringing back next season include: "20/20", "America's Funniest Home Videos","American Idol", "The Bachelor", "Dancing with the Stars", "For the People", "Fresh Off the Boat", "The Goldbergs", "The Good Doctor", "Grey's Anatomy", "How to Get Away with Murder", "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", "Modern Family" and "Shark Tank
The shows ABC has CANCELED include: "Alex Inc.", "The Crossing", "Deception", "Designated Survivor", "Downward Dog", "Kevin (Probably) Saves the World", "Marvel's Inhumans", "The Mayor", "The Middle" . . ."Once Upon a Time", "Quantico", "Scandal", "Somewhere Between", "Still Star-Crossed", and "Ten Days in the Valley". They're still undecided on these shows: "Battle of the Network Stars", "Boy Band", "Steve Harvey's Funderdome", and "The Toy Box". Some other new shows that will show up on ABC's schedule at some point include "Dancing with the Stars: Juniors", and an Alec Baldwin talk show.
ABC just canceled the Kiefer Sutherland thriller "Designated Survivor", but Netflix is reportedly interested in picking it up. Nothing is official yet.
JAKE JOHNSON played Nick Miller on "New Girl", which ended its seven-season run on Fox last night. He says he'd like to come back and do a revival in 10 years.
The return of "Last Man Standing" is killing talk of a possible "Home Improvement" revival. It probably wouldn't have happened anyway

PAULEY PERRETTE made some interesting claims in a series of Tweets recently suggesting that she left "NCIS" over, quote, "multiple physical assaults." Then she added, quote, "Maybe I'm wrong for not 'spilling the beans.' Telling the story, THE TRUTH. I feel I have to protect my crew, jobs and so many people. But at what cost? "I don't know. Just know, I'm trying to do the right thing, but maybe silence isn't the right thing about crime. Then she said, quote, "No morals, no obligation to truth, and I'm just left here, reading the lies, trying to protect my crew. He did it." And in her last Tweet on the subject, she said, quote, "I've been supporting anti-bullying programs forever. But now I KNOW because it was ME! If it's school or work, that you're required to go to? "It's horrifying. I left. Multiple Physical Assaults. I REALLY get it now. Stay safe. Nothing is worth your safety. Tell someone." CBS says she voiced a "workplace concern" over a year ago, and they, quote, "worked with her to find a solution." Now this… ex-husband claims she wrote “handwritten death threats” against him because he filed for divorce. Musician has filed a personal injury case against her, accusing her of trying to harm his reputation. The pair were married from 2000-2006. She has previously accused him of harassing her.
Kurt Cobain‘s suicide photos will remain sealed after an appellate court in Washington upheld a judgment from 2015 keeping them from being released to the public. Obviously this makes Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain happy. Back in 2014, Richard Lee sued the city of Seattle to try and get the photos released. Lee has spent 23 years investigating Cobain’s death and believes he was actually killed in a conspiracy involving multiple government officials. He lost his original suit in 2015, but filed an appeal last year. On April 21, 2016, Love filed a declaration accusing Lee of trying to exploit Cobain’s death and claiming Lee has “stalked and harassed me, my family, and my friends for many, many years … On one particular occasion, Mr. Lee even filmed himself chasing a limousine for several miles that he thought I was a passenger in. Mr. Lee’s actions make me fear for my safety.”
Also, Frances Bean Cobain‘s divorce is now settled but yep her ex Isiah Silva gets to keep Kurt’s old guitar afte rall. It’s the Martin guitar Cobain played during his MTV Unplugged performance in November 1993. Cobain died in the following year in April of suicide. Silva claimed she given him the guitar as a present, while she denied ever giving it to him. In November, it was reported the guitar is worth millions of dollars.
The man who was arrested inside Rihanna's home, where he was waiting to "have sex" with her, is now facing 3 felony charges. Eduardo Leon was set to face a judge Monday afternoon in L.A., but even before arriving in court, he was charged with stalking, burglary and vandalism ... all felonies. He was also charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest. This was the 26-year-old man that was tased and arrested last week after Rihanna's assistant found him inside her L.A.-area house where he stayed at least an entire day. He told police he wanted to have sex with the singer, not rape her. Leon allegedly broke into another home a week earlier, thinking it was Rhianna’s. He was also booked for residential burglary and trespassing. Rihanna was not home at the time of the break-in.
The strange saga of MEGHAN MARKLE and her dad has probably come to an unfortunate end. Thomas Markle actually changed his mind this morning and said he WANTS to be at the Royal Wedding to walk his daughter down the aisle. But he probably CAN'T . . . because he's having heart surgery this morning. Apparently, his ticker took some serious damage from that heart attack last week . . . and chances are he won't be well enough to travel to London this weekend. On the plus side, Thomas says his daughter isn't upset with him for staging paparazzi photos of himself getting ready for the wedding. And there is this…remember I said they royal family may be worried about the family baggage? Meghan’s half sister who clearly wasn’t invited to the wedding just talked with TMZ about the reports Meghan wants her to shut the hell up about the wedding and her dad etc
The first trailer for the QUEEN movie, "Bohemian Rhapsody" has been released. Freddie is played by RAMI MALEK from the TV show "Mr. Robot", and from the footage in the trailer, it looks like he really nails the character. At the very least, he's got the look down. The best part has to be when they're recording the song "Bohemian Rhapsody", and Freddie informs guitarist BRIAN MAY how the song breaks down.
'Survivor' contestants can apparently get through weeks of competition and mind games, but not a basic NDA agreement ... as two dummies just proved, and it could cost them dearly. A pair of contestants, who are starring in the upcoming season, flagrantly broke their confidentiality agreements this week by posting a photo together ... when they were specifically asked not to just last week. Filming for season 37 wrapped last Wednesday, and upon arriving back home ... sources say contestants were emailed a reminder not to spoil anything with social media activity -- like following each other and, obviously, posing together. Turns out, a guy named Alec Merlino and girl named Kara Kay did just that Sunday, captioning their pic with a not-so-subtle "F*** it" -- which fueled rumors they're on the show. Welp, those rumors were true ... Alec and Kara are on the show, and hit it off in Fiji. The producers are now pissed at them for breaking protocol, and are now looking at possible legal action, withholding prize money ... or both. Production sources say the NDAs have a $5 million penalty.

It's extremely rare that something happens that actually CHANGES MUSIC. But I think that just happened.
