Danielle Bregoli.  You may know her as Bhad Bhabie, or the Catch Me Outside Girl from “Dr. Phil”.  Some people know her as THE WORST PERSON WHO EVER GOT FAMOUS. But maybe it’s time for a reassessment.  Because Danielle has partnered with a nonprofit organization to offer $1.7 million in scholarships to help students enroll in technical and trade schools. The so-called “Bhad Scholarships” will range from $1,000 to a FULL RIDE.  Some kids will also receive $10,000 to start a business when they graduate. Danielle says, quote, “I know that there’s a lot of kids out there that really want to get real jobs and want to work hard, but they just don’t have the money to provide it.  I thought it was an amazing idea” (LINK)

George Lopez is the latest comedian to join the list of comics who are suing the subscription-based music streaming service. Names on the list include Lewis Black and Andrew “Dice” Clay, as well as the estates of George Carlin and Robin Williams. The comedians allege they’ve been underpaid, or not paid altogether, for performances streamed thousands of times on Pandora. They also claim Pandora knowingly posted their comedy routines without attempting to obtain licenses and later admitted in regulatory filings that Pandora knew it was taking a risk by offering the material to its audience of over 55 million. The comedians are seeking copyright compensation not just for the recorded performances, but for the underlying written material as well. Preliminary hearings are set to begin in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles at the end of August.

A woman who is suing former “SNL” star Horatio Sanz for sexual assault asked the court’s permission on Tuesday to add Jimmy Fallon, Lorne Michaels, and Tracy Morgan as defendants, arguing that they enabled Sanz’ misconduct. The woman, identified only as Jane Doe, alleges that Sanz “groomed” her when she was a teen fan (LINK) of the show. She also alleges that Sanz kissed her, groped her, and attempted to digitally penetrate her at a party in May 2002, when she was 17 years old. According to the complaint, the accuser and her teenage friends regularly attended “SNL” after-parties in 2000 to 2002. The suit alleges that Fallon and Sanz would drink with her at these parties, and that Fallon once questioned her about her age, and she responded that she was a junior in high school. She also met Michaels at one of the parties, who gave her advice on pursuing a writing career, according to the complaint. The suit alleges that Morgan rented out a space for an after-after-party in May 2002, where Sanz allegedly groped her against her will.

A Disney princess was arrested for disorderly conduct this past Friday outside Dayton, Ohio.  The perp was Irene Bedard, who provided the speaking voice for “Pocahontas”.  Police saw Bedard arguing with another woman, and then she, quote, “walked out into the street screaming, without any regard for traffic.” Police said there was a strong odor of alcohol on Irene’s breath, but she claimed she hadn’t had anything to drink that day.  She did cop to downing a bottle of vodka the previous day, though. She was acting erratically, so they took her in.  Apparently, Bedard had been spotted passed out in some bushes earlier in the day, but by the time cops got there, she was gone. Bedard was also arrested twice over a three-day period in 2020, on charges of assault, domestic violence, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.

Pretty, pretty, pretty good news for Curb Your Enthusiasm fans. Although Larry David had previously confirmed that Season 12 was coming earlier this year and an update earlier in August said that production was slated for Fall, HBO finally gave the series an official renewal. Alongside David, the show also boasts a cast of celebrities and guests who often also play by the show’s exaggerated rules. Among those with a frequent presence on the show are Jeff GarlinSusie EssmanJ.B. SmooveCheryl HinesRichard LewisVince Vaughn, and Ted Danson. The show’s been able to get a long line of high-profile guests on board though, including the main cast of David’s other hit comedy about nothing Seinfeld.

Don’t ask Idris Elba about the prospects of becoming the new James Bond.  The rumors have been floating for years, but Elba is tired of the gossip.  During a conversation on the Jemele Hill is Unbothered podcast, Elba said, “I have no more answers for it. I just tell people ‘aw, don’t ask me that.’ Because a lot of times it’s really lazy journalism. And people try to use it as clickbait like ‘what’s he gonna say this time?'” He added, “I try to say the same things. Every now and then I just tease them, but every now and then I’ll give them some philosophy on why I don’t want to do it or why it’s a rumor. But most times now I tend not to talk about it.”

Paul Rudd has joined the cast of “Only Murders in the Building.” Hulu confirmed that he will star in the show’s third season after making a cameo as Broadway star Ben Glenroy in Season 2 finale “I Know Who Did It.” It has not yet been announced whether Rudd will appear in a series regular, recurring or guest capacity.

The trailer for the new Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power is up on the blog. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books, and the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared reemergence of evil to Middle-earth.The first two episodes of the multi-season drama will launch on Prime Video on Friday, September 1-2, with new episodes available weekly.

“Celebrity Jeopardy!” returns this fall with host Mayim Bialik. Contestants include  Michael Cera, Patton Oswalt, Constance Wu, and B.J. Novak. Mayim says, quote, “Let’s hope they’ve been reading more than screenplays.” It premieres September 25th at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on ABC, and streams the next day on Hulu.

The highest-grossing movie of all-time (LINK)“Avatar”, is going back to theaters for two weeks starting September 23rd.  But this time, it’ll be in 4K. It’s been almost 13 years since “Avatar” came out, so you might want a refresher before the sequel hits.  Unfortunately, you won’t find it on Disney+, since it got quietly removed.  No word on when it’ll return, but it’s supposed to before “Avatar: The Way of Water” hits theaters on December 16th.

The 1988 low-budget cult classic “Killer Klowns from Outer Space (LINK)” keeps growing in popularity.  It will become a new video game in 2023. The movie was made by a couple brothers in 1988.  Not available on VHS or DVD until 2001.  Over time, it’s been a theme at Universal Studios Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights, various Funko Pops, and if you’ve been in a Spirit Halloween shop lately, their merch sells out quickly.  It was comedian Christopher Titus’ first movie role.  The movie’s most expensive prop?  Not the rubber masks of all the clowns, instead it was the popcorn-shooting gun that ran them seven grand.

Remember when Kim Kardashian was tied up and robbed in a Paris hotel back in 2016?  Well, Vice News spoke to one of the 12 elderly men who was arrested for that crime, and he’s not sorry. Yunis Abbas says Kim was kind of asking for it, the way she was constantly showing off her wealth on social media. Quote, “I saw one of her shows where she threw her diamond in the pool in that episode of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’.  I thought:  “She’s got a lot of money.  This lady doesn’t care at all.’

Since she was throwing money away, I was there to collect it, and that was that.  Guilty?  No, I don’t care.  I don’t care.” He added, quote, “[Celebrities] should be a little less showy towards people who can’t afford it.  For some people, it’s provocative.'”

“Bring Me to Life” by Evanescence is a banger of a tune right?.  When it came out in 2003, everyone was rocking to it.  But that was 19 years ago.  So why did it just hit #1 on iTunes? The truth is, nobody knows.  I mean, it’s not like it was on “Stranger Things” or anything.  So what gives?  Here are three theories:

  1. It was the answer to Monday’s Heardle . . . which is like Wordle.
    2.  “Bring Me to Life” is currently on sale for 69 cents.
  2. Evanescence is getting exposure from being on tour with Korn.

This is one of those ideas that, when you hear it, you wonder why it hasn’t already existed for years.  A Miami rapper named Zoey Dollaz has started a ridesharing service like Uber . . . but with BULLETPROOF vehicles. He got the idea after seeing so many of his friends and fellow rappers getting shot, and even dying, in cars.  In fact, he’s been shot multiple times himself. One time he was in a car with Young Thug and they got sprayed with about 75 rounds. Zoey named the company Aegis, after the goddess Athena’s protective cloak, and he says he has cars in L.A., New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, and other hotspots.  And it’s not just for rappers.  Boxer Manny Pacquiao was a recent client.

Fetty Wap might be in jail for the next five years or more. On Monday, the rapper (real name William Maxwell) appeared in court and pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess and distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine. TMZ reports that the minimum sentence is five years, and the max is forty. It’s estimated that Fetty could stay in jail anywhere from 87 and 108 months.Last year, Fetty was arrested on charges of smuggling and distributing drugs like cocaine and fentanyl. Authorities confiscated $1.5 million in cash, drugs, and guns during their investigation. A sentencing date has not been set.

At this point, there can’t be too many people still holding out hope for a Led Zeppelin reunion.  But just in case you are, here’s Robert Plant putting yet another nail in that coffin. He says, quote, “Going back to the font to get some kind of massive applause, it doesn’t really satisfy my need to be stimulated. “I know there are people from my generation who don’t want to stay home and so they go out and play.  If they’re enjoying it and doing what they need to do to pass the days, then that’s their business, really.”

A study was conducted to find out Gen Z’s favorite influencer. Generation Z (or Gen Z for short),  are those generally born from 1996 to 2012. In this study, 16-25-year-olds were asked about their favorite influencer today and the Kardashians did not even break the top 5! Some people say this list is crap being that James Charles is no.2

10) Kylie Jenner
9) Jake Paul
8) YouTuber CoryxKenshin
7) Kim Kardashian
6) Addison Rae
5) YouTuber Markiplier
4) YouTuber Emma Chamberlain
3) MrBeast
2) James Charles
1)  Charli D’Amelio

The study was conducted by the digital marketing agency Higher Visibility

Cardinals stranded 11 batters in the first 8 innings of the 18 innings they played yesterday and had their 8 game winning streak halted during the day baseball day baseball against the Cubs. Cubs took the first game of the double-header 2-0 but then bounced back for that double header just a bit by scoring 13 as they won 13-3. Homers came from Tyler O’Neill, Tommy Edman and a Mr. Nolan Arenado. Here’s a little Danny Mac call on Nolan’s …

Cards play Cubs again TOMORROW at Wrigley with a start time of 1:20 for some what rizz?…

Kevin Durant will continue playing for the Brooklyn Nets. The former MVP had asked for a trade as the NBA free agency season began. Since then, speculation about where Durant would land has been nonstop. All of the rumors ended on Tuesday. In a statement, Nets general manager Sean Marks said, “[Coach] Steve Nash and I, together with [governors] Joe Tsai and Clara Wu Tsai, met with Kevin Durant and Rich Kleiman in Los Angeles yesterday. We have agreed to move forward with our partnership.” Marks added, “We are focusing on basketball, with one collective goal in mind: build a lasting franchise to bring a championship to Brooklyn.”

A piece of NFL history can now be all yours thanks to Hakeem Nicks … TMZ Sports has learned the former NY Giants star has decided to part ways with his Super Bowl ring — putting it up for auction this month. Bidding on the bling — which Nicks helped Eli Manning and the Giants win in an epic game against Tom Brady and the Patriots back in 2012 — is currently at $25,000, but officials at Heritage Auctions (LINK) tell us it could ultimately get up to over $80,000.

Rick Ross is tired of Jake Paul‘s boxing opponents backing out, so he’s reaching deep into his pockets, offering up a whopping $10 million on top of the fighter’s purse … all to secure a fighter for the Problem Child. Of course, 25-year-old Paul was scheduled to fight Tommy Fury (twice) and Hasim Rahman Jr., but both men never made it to the ring … and Ross tells TMZ Sports he’s so sick of it, he’s cutting an 8-figure check. Rick, who is friends with Jake, says the $10,000,000 will be awarded in addition to whatever fighter pay is negotiated with promoters. He doesn’t care how the cash is split up (all to the winner, 50/50, etc.).

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy are joining forces for more than their campaign against LIV Golf. Those two and executive Mike McCarley, announced the launch of TMRW Sports yesterday. The company will focus on “building technology-focused ventures that feature progressive approaches to sports, media, and entertainment.” “I am excited to work with TMRW Sports in bringing people more access to sports,” Woods said via a press release. “So many athletes, entertainers, and people I meet from all walks of life share our passion for sports, but they also share our desire to build a better future for the next generation of sports fans. Together, we can harness technology to bring fresh approaches to the sports we love.”  Early TMRW Sports projects will be announced at a later time. For now, McIlroy can look ahead to the start of the Tour Championship on Thursday (LINK)

Gary Gaines, coach of the Texas high school football team made famous in the book and movie “Friday Night Lights,” has died. He was 73. Gaines’ family said in a statement the former coach died Monday in Lubbock after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Gaines made many stops in West Texas during a 30-year coaching career, but was best known for a four-year stint leading the highly successful program at Odessa Permian. Gaines returned to Permian later in his career. His 1988 team was chronicled in Buzz Bissinger’s bestselling book, which portrayed a program and school that favored football over academics and attributed racist comments to assistant coaches. Gaines, who was played by Billy Bob Thornton in the 2004 movie, said he never read the book and felt betrayed by Bissinger after the author spent the entire 1988 season with the team. The book, which portrayed Gaines as a compassionate coach caught in the win-at-all-costs culture of a high school program in football-crazed Texas, also was turned into a TV series (LINK)

Teachers will be calling on a lot more Kobes in about five years. As KTLA reports, the name “Kobe” tops the list of baby names presumably inspired by sports stars between 2000 and 2021. The list, compiled by Betsperts, found that more than 17,000 infants born in the US in that time period were given the same name as the NBA great, who was killed in a helicopter crash (LINK) in January 2020. After his death, parents’ selection of “Kobe” saw a whopping 201% spike from the previous year. That percentage increase was topped by none other than “Tiger” (for Tiger Woods), which experienced a 225% jump between 2009 and 2010. Here are the top 10 names:

  1. Kobe Bryant, “Kobe,” 17,071
  2. David Beckham, “Beckham,” 12,211
  3. Serena Williams, “Serena,” 10,620
  4. Sidney Crosby, “Crosby,” 4,397
  5. Carli Lloyd, “Carli,” 4,102
  6. Floyd Mayweather, “Floyd,” 2,144
  7. Venus Williams, “Venus,” 1,876
  8. Marshawn Lynch, “Marshawn” 1,719
  9. LeBron James, “LeBron,” 1,112
  10. Tiger Woods, “Tiger,” 810
