70s country star MAC DAVIS is “critically ill” after having heart surgery in Nashville.  His manager posted a message on Mac’s official Twitter account saying “your love and prayers will be deeply appreciated.”

Lil Yachty was arrested last week for driving over 150 miles-per-hour on an Atlanta, Georgia interstate highway. The rapper was speeding along in a white Ferrari when he was pulled over by police. He was charged with reckless driving and speeding in excess of maximum limits and booked. However, this isn’t the first time that Yachty had a problem on the road. In June, he crashed a Ferrari and had minor injuries. Witnesses said he was speeding at the time and road was wet

SIENNA MILLER says that she almost didn’t do the thriller “21 Bridges” with CHADWICK BOSEMAN . . . because she was taking some time off from acting at the time. She wanted to do the gig because she wanted to work with Boseman. The studio wasn’t bucking up the way she wanted them to. She wanted a certain number and the studio wasn’t having it. There indeed is pay disparity in Hollywood if you haven’t heard.  And ChadwickBoseman ended up donating some of his salary to get her the dollar amount she needed for the project. She said “It’s just unfathomable to imagine another man in that town behaving that graciously or respectfully . . . there was no showiness, it was, ‘Of course I’ll get you to that number, because that’s what you should be paid.'” It probably wasn’t an “equal pay” situation . . . because Chadwick was not only starring in the movie, he was also a producer.  But since he was a producer, he was instrumental in pursuing Sienna for the role in the first place.

Naya Rivera drowned during a swimming trip with son 5 year old Josey in Southern California in July.  Josey was found later, alone on their rented boat. NAYA RIVERA’s ex-husband RYAN DORSEY won’t have to raise their son Josey alone . . . because he just moved in with Naya’s younger sister NICKAYLA. They’re reportedly sharing a three-bedroom rental together so Nickayla can help raise Josey, who’s 5 years old.  Nickayla is 25 . . . Ryan is 37. They were also seen at Target “fooling around and chatting”. Obviously helping each other deal with Naya’s drowning. If this seems or looks weird to you Nickayla doesn’t care. She posted, quote, “I’m not concerned with the way things look because no one can see each agonizing moment we all endure. “What matters most I’ve learned, is to show compassion, not to judge others, and never take a moment of life for granted.  I hope you all can do the same.” Ryan and Naya got married in July of 2014.  They split in 2016 but got back together, then separated for good in 2018.

DAVE CHAPPELLE’s series of “Intimate Socially Distanced” comedy shows in Yellow Springs, Ohio have been shut down, because one of the recurring performers may have come down with COVID-19. This past Friday’s show was canceled just hours before start time, and four remaining shows have been axed out of, quote, “an abundance of caution.” Some of the biggest names in comedy have done sets at these shows, including Chris Rock, David Letterman, Jon Stewart, Tiffany Haddish, Michael Che, Sarah Silverman, Louis CK, and Michelle Wolf. There’s no word who may have caught the coronavirus, but it reportedly wasn’t any of those comics.

Saturday Night Live is offering free tickets to this weekend’s Season 46 premiere to healthcare workers. While tickets available to the public are gone, as of Monday there were still tickets available for frontline workers. Saturday’s host will be former SNL cast member Chris Rock. The premiere will be the first in-person program done at 30 Rockefeller Center since the spring. The show has several requirements in place for those who attend and ask several questions of attendees as they arrive. The live season premiere will air on Saturday, October 3 on NBC 

Netflix could soon be raising their subscription prices, according to a few articles I read. The first quarter of the year Netflix said a price increase want on their radar but they are hinting a bit.   The price might not be go up much, and for Netflix to make a lot of money, it may not need to. Even if the subscription cost went up a dollar or two, that could generate $500 million USD to $1 billion dollars next year. Reasons for the hike might be the battle between the streaming services and the cost of procuring big Hollywood names for the service.

11 years after it first became a social media gaming sensation the OG Farmville is going bye bye at the end of the year. “Adobe will stop distributing and updating Flash Player for all web browsers, and Facebook will stop supporting Flash games on the platform completely after December 31st, 2020,” the company said in a statement. “FarmVille will therefore be directly affected as a result of this.” Zynga said in-app purchases will be available until Nov. 17, ” at which point the game’s payment system will be completely turned off.” FarmVille, in which users grew crops in virtual farms with the help of “neighbors” and in-game purchases, was a runaway hit in its early days, with an estimated 73 million monthly users six months after its launch in 2009. Its popularity soon faded, but numerous imitators and sequels remain. But fear not… “We look forward to you joining us in Farmville 2: Tropic Escape, Farmville 2: Country Escape and the upcoming worldwide launch of FarmVille 3 on mobile,” Zynga said Monday.   

TYLER POSEY of Teen Wolf has jjoined Only Fans . . . where apparently you’ll get to see him play guitar naked.

CAROLE BASKIN was eliminated from “Dancing with the Stars” last night . . . which is only surprising because she wasn’t the FIRST to go.  That was former NBA star CHARLES OAKLEY, who was axed last week. At the end of the episode, Tyra Banks announced that Carole and Anne Heche were in the Bottom Two . . . and the three judges saved Anne.  Carole was also in the Bottom Two last week, but she was saved that time. After the verdict, Carole said, quote, “My husband is going to be so happy I’m coming home.”

The guys in BTS just got a whole lot richer, after their label Big Hit Entertainment went public. Big Hit CEO Bang Si-Hyuk gave each of the seven members of the group a little more than 68,000 shares last month . . . and those shares are now worth $7.9 million.  That’s $7.9 million for each member. Bang did a little better though.  The IPO made him a billionaire.

CARDI B is already selling “WAP” raincoats and umbrellas . . . but that was only the tip of the iceberg.  Last week, Cardi filed trademarks to slap her “WAP” on just about any product you can think of . . .Including clothing, headwear, footwear, athletic bags, purses, jewelry, stickers, posters, alcoholic beverages, sports drinks, soft drinks, fruit juices, mineral water, and more. Not that all these products will actually be produced . . . Cardi’s just making sure all her options are protected. All 25 James Bond themes are coming out on limited edition vinyl.  (Here’s the theme from “Dr. No.”) (AUDIO) The Best of Bond…James Bond, a compilation of every theme song from the iconic film franchise, is getting an update.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was the NFL MVP in 2018. Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson won that award in 2019. Monday night presented an opportunity for either of the two youngest MVPs in modern league history to prove to the football world that he should be viewed as the sport’s most valuable player right now.

Mahomes left no doubt.

In a commanding 34-20 Chiefs victory that was more lopsided than the score indicates, the reigning Super Bowl MVP was close to perfect. He completed 31 of 42 passes to eight different receivers and produced five touchdowns with his arm and legs in a dominant performance against a defense that ranked fifth in defense-adjusted value over average last year and was third in that same category entering Week 3.

If not for a third-quarter Darwin Thompson fumble and a turnover on downs on Kansas City’s next drive, this could have been a blowout. Harrison Butker also surprisingly missed a field goal, Mecole Hardman had a quasi-drop in the end zone, and Baltimore’s Devin Duvernay returned a kickoff for a touchdown. Still, the statement was made as the Mahomes-led Chiefs outgained the Ravens 517-228 in a game they controlled from start to finish.

The Cardinals have pulled a bit of a surprise by announcing that Kwang Hyun Kim will be the starter in their wild-card playoff opener Wednesday afternoon against the Padres in San Diego. Manager Mike Shildt announced that veteran Adam Wainwright would have the second game on Thursday and opening-day starter Jack Flaherty would have Game 3, if necessary, on Friday, in the best-of-three series. Korean lefthander Kim, who statistically has been the Cardinals’ best starter, has a 3-0 record and 1.62 earned-run average for seven starts and one relief appearance. He has given up only 28 hits in 39 innings and never has faced the Padres. The Padres have yet to announce their first-game starter but are leaning toward righthander Dinelson Lamet.

he Blues’ reign as Stanley Cup champions ended on Monday night but Pat Maroon’s didn’t.

After winning the Stanley Cup with his hometown Blues in 2019, Maroon, who grew up in Oakville, won a Stanley Cup for the second consecutive season, this time with Tampa Bay, when the Lightning defeated Dallas 2-0 in Game 6 in Edmonton, Alberta, to become champions of the most unusual season in NHL history.

“We didn’t have family there,” Maroon said after the game, “but it’s nice to celebrate with these boys. We worked our butts off and we deserve this.”

“St. Louis is cheering me on for sure, Tampa Bay too,” Maroon said in an on-ice interview with NBC Sports after the game. “I’m fortunate. I can’t believe I’m in this position again. It’s an amazing accomplishment for me and my teammates and I’m happy to be still playing here.

Maroon is the third player in the expansion era to win consecutive Stanley Cups with different teams. The most recent was Cory Stillman (an ex-Blue), who won in 2004 with Tampa Bay and with Carolina in 2006. (There was no champion in 2005 because of the NHL lockout.) The last player to do it in consecutive seasons was Claude Lemieux, who won with New Jersey in 1995 and with Colorado in 1996. Another former Blue to lift the Cup on Monday was defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk. He was traded from the Blues to Washington at the trade deadline in 2017, then signed with his hometown New York Rangers after that season. That didn’t work out well, and two years into his four-year deal, the Rangers bought out the rest of his contract. He signed a one-year contract with Tampa Bay in the offseason. This win was redemption for him. Jon Cooper, Tampa Bay’s coach, has a St. Louis connection, having coached the St. Louis Bandits junior team in 2007 and 2008. Maroon was on the 2007 team.

The Los Angeles Clippers suffered a humiliating defeat in the second round of the playoffs, blowing a 3-1 lead to the Denver Nuggets, in which they had double-digit leads in all three of the final games. That epic collapse made them the laughing stock of the league, and now it has cost Doc Rivers his coaching job.

After seven seasons with the Clippers, Rivers has been fired. He confirmed the news shortly after it was reported, releasing a statement on Twitter 

The Lakers vs. Heat NBA Finals is set! The NBA Finals start with Game 1 on Wednesday September 30, bringing an end to the longest season in NBA history. The Los Angeles Lakers will face the Miami Heat, as three-time Finals MVP LeBron James will look to win his fourth championship against his former team. James will be playing in his 10th NBA Finals, tying him with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the third-most NBA Finals appearances by a player, behind only Bill Russell (12) and Sam Jones (11).

The Lakers are in the Finals for the 32nd time in franchise history, but this is their first appearance since 2010. Miami is making its sixth Finals appearance, but first without longtime star Dwyane Wade.
