Country legend NAOMI JUDD passed away (LINK) at age 76. It happened Saturday near Nashville, one day before she was set to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Last we heard, the family wasn’t disclosing a cause of death. But her daughters Wynonna and Ashley broke the news in a statement that said she lost her battle with “mental illness.” She and Wynonna were set to be inducted into the Hall of Fame last night, which DID still happen after the family said that’s what they wanted. The Hall put out a statement saying the show would go on with, quote, “heavy hearts and weighted minds.” The ceremony wasn’t televised, but Wynonna WAS expected to attend. The red carpet got canceled though. They sold 20 MILLION records between 1984 and 1991 alone, and were getting ready for their “Final Tour,” which was supposed to start in September.
Carrie Underwood honored Naomi Judd during her headlining Stagecoach performance on Saturday by singing See You Again. But then Axel Rose came out and they did Sweet Child Oh Mine and Paradise City
Earlier this month, production on a movie called “Being Mortal” was shut down indefinitely . . . and word got out that it was because BILL MURRAY did “something inappropriate” on the set. Well, in an interview with CNBC over the weekend, Bill admitted that he had a “difference of opinion” with an unnamed woman on the set (LINK)
DJ Khaled was out with his five-year-old son Asahd, and they were looking to score a Happy Meal . . . for “Happy Meal Saturday,” if that’s even a thing. But it turned into a HUGE adventure, because they went to FIVE McDonald’s locations and every one was SOLD OUT. He finally found one place that had them in stock, and made a video, where he asked McDonald’s what was up. It’s likely a temporary thing. We recently heard (LINK) that McDonald’s is “refreshing” Happy Meals to phase out plastic toys and make them more eco-conscious. So maybe this is just a rough patch while they’re changing gears?
CW’s Batwoman will end after three seasons, showrunner Caroline Dries announced Friday, only one day after National Superhero Day. The series has been a bit of a mess. Ruby Rose played the title character briefly in 2020 but left after accusing Batwoman producers of “horrific” and “unprofessional” working conditions. Javicia Leslie took over as the title character after Rose’s departure. With slipping ratings, it looks like Discovery Warner Brothers’ overhaul of DC entertainment has started with Batwoman. Meanwhile, Leslie Grace is set to star as the lead in the upcoming Batgirl movie slated to premiere on HBO Max later this year.
Most of the “That ’70s Show” gang will be reunited for the Netflix sequel series “That ’90s Show”. We already knew Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp were coming back as Red and Kitty . . . but now there’s a LOT more. Topher Grace (Eric), Mila Kunis (Jackie), Ashton Kutcher (Kelso), Laura Prepon (Donna), and Wilmer Valderrama (Fez) will all be making guest appearances. The only one missing is Danny Masterson (Hyde), for obvious reasons . . . he was ordered to stand trial for three counts of rape, which he denies. Kurtwood shared a sneak peek photo of he and Debra Jo on set and said, quote, “Same Red and Kitty. Different decade.” And Topher shared a photo wearing a Point Place Vikings Class of ’77 shirt and said, quote, “Yup, still fits.” In case you missed the show announcement last October, “That ’90s Show” will be 10 episodes and it takes place in Wisconsin in 1995. It’s about Leia, the daughter of Eric and Donna, as she spends the summer with her grandparents Red and Kitty (LINK)

Who Was This Year’s NFL Draft’s Mr. Irrelevant? (The Last Player Picked)
- The final NFL draft pick has been called “Mr. Irrelevant” since 1976.
- Even though the term might seem embarrassing, the title has become a badge of honor over the year. The NFL even makes a big deal about it.
- This year’s honor goes to Iowa State quarterback Brock Purdy. He was picked by the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday.
- The Niners tweeted “relevant” when they picked Purdy.
- There’s a Mr. Irrelevant award where the pick gets a trip to Disneyland and attends charity events.
- Lest you think that no Mr. Irrelevant has an impact, punter Ryan Succop is a former winner who was on the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers two seasons ago.
- After falling behind twice because Arizona continued to do what it so often had not this season, the Cardinals socked two home runs in the seventh inning to rally and overtake the Diamondbacks for a 7-5 victory at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals had gone more than two weeks without hitting two home runs in a game before Bader and Nolan Arenado each hit one over the left-field wall in the span of six pitches.
- Bader’s two-run, two-strike jolt was his first homer of the season and flipped a game that featured two rallies started by Andrew Knizner, an encouraging start from Jordan Hicks and Ryan Helsley’s super-powered, six-out save.
- Chicago Bears cut Foles: The Chicago Bears released veteran quarterback Nick Foles on Sunday, two years after acquiring the former Super Bowl MVP to compete with Mitchell Trubisky for the starting job.
- Foles played in 11 games with the St. Louis Rams in 2015, their final season here.
Baltimore (link) just got a behemoth on its offensive line.
Australia’s (link) Daniel Faalele is set to become the heaviest player in the NFL after being drafted in the fourth round by the Ravens. The offensive tackle, who Baltimore selected No. 110 overall Saturday, measured 6 feet, 8 inches tall and weighed in at 384 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine. He is set to take over the distinction of being the league’s heaviest player from New England Patriots lineman Trent Brown, who is listed at 380 pounds. But Brown will have financial incentives to stay under 365 pounds at weekly weigh-in sessions during the season. The Melbourne-born player had a unique journey to the league. He left Australia at age 16 with a rugby and basketball background and didn’t play competitive football until 2017. Faalele will now be tasked with protecting quarterback Lamar Jackson on a Ravens squad that went 8-9 last season.
