As we have talked, Bam Margera recently went on a rant (link) against Jackass director Jeff Tremaine and costar Johnny Knoxville, claiming they strung him along to be part of “Jackass 4” only to cut him loose (link) over what he calls unreasonable demands. To help with all this I am sure, Bam’s been sending messed up messages to Tremaine, including threatening his safety and that of his children. The court has granted Tremaine’s request for a temporary restraining order against Bam, requiring him to stay at least 100 yards away from Jeff, his wife and kids … and to stop contacting him. Tremaine claims he’s been getting harassed by Bam since February, after Jeff says Bam no-showed for a virtual meeting to discuss how he could help Margera with his mental health and sobriety struggles. Since then, according to the docs, Bam’s been on the warpath on social media. Tremaine claims Margera’s publicly attacked him, threatened violence, compared him to Harvey Weinstein (link), posted obscene drawings and made a comment that he and Johnny Knoxville (link) can “pencil in there [sic] death certificate.” On top of that, Tremaine claims Bam’s sent him several direct threats against his kids, including one that read … “Look at your children and grab your pocket book and write a check, if you are greedy, and cheap, look at your children again. If you don‘t sign the paper, look at you children. Sign your stupid f***ing contract before your (sic) not safe anywhere.” According to Jeff, the contract Bam is referring to seems to be one Margera wrote up himself. Tremaine says he’s in great fear for his family’s and his personal safety.   

THE ROCK is thinking about running for president, and MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY is seriously considering a campaign for Texas governor. Well, CLAY AIKEN dipped his toes into politics back in 2014, and he’s not entirely sure they can handle it. “The sad truth is . . . we are so divided right now, people are very tribal . . .”The minute that [they] throw their hat into the ring and put either an R or a D behind their name, they’re gonna lose a lot of support from people. “And I hesitate to believe that either of them is going to be willing to forego the universal love and acclaim that they have from folks . . . You have to be prepared for attacks and dirt to be slung like you’ve never ever imagined, and nobody’s reputation survives that completely unscathed.”

Dwayne Johnson recently revealed that he’ll be filming a shirtless scene for the upcoming Black Adam. I think we have talked about this before maybe ths list has changed but But who gets then out the most as far as the dudes? The folks at JustJared.com have performed this valuable public service – using actual math to rank the top 10 actors who tend to lose their shirts onscreen. At the top of the list is Zac Efron, who’s showing cans in 50% of the movies he’s appeared in. Second was Jason Momoa, showing the Momoa mammeries in 38.5% of his films. Other actors in the top 10 include Chris Hemsworth a look, Matthew McConaugheyyyyy, and Henry Cavill.

WWE SlappySlam 2021 has an official date; August 21st.  We find out the location this Saturday. There are rumors that the WWE wants to move SummerSlam out of Florida and is thinking Las Vegas for the event, but that’s unlikely because a Manny Pacquaio fight is scheduled in Vegas on that Saturday. Supposedly the WWE wants rapper Cardi B. to host with Logan Paul backstage doing interviews.  Cardi B.’s hit “Up” is already SummerSlam’s theme song. Tickets for SummerSlam 2021 go on sale on June 18th. 

JAMES DEAN’s deadly crash in 1955. ZAK BAGANS from “Ghost Adventures” is now the proud owner of the transaxel from James’ 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder . . . the car he crashed and died in. In fact, the four-speed transaxle is one of the only known items from James’ crash that’s still intact and in circulation, according to Zak.  He purchased it at a recent auction for almost $400,000. It might be worth mentioning that a lot of the other parts from the Porsche that were refurbished and reused were involved in other crashes over the years . . . and one of them was FATAL. Zak believes the transaxle might be one of the final pieces to still be carrying the “curse” that was responsible for James’ death. He plans on putting it on display at his Haunted Museum in Las Vegas.

Everyone recall this scene in Wedding Crashers (2005)? The Wedding Crashers sequel is happening. The original movie starred Vince Vaughn (link) and Owen Wilson (link) as Jeremy and John, divorce mediators crashing wedding receptions to drink for free and well the women. The plot is this..the Secretary of the Treasury announces the wedding of his daughter, they want to crash the high-profile event. But their game hits a bump in the road when John locks eyes with bridesmaid Claire.

46 year old mom of 3 and former Playmate Shanna Moakler is getting on OnlyFans.  But don’t worry…“I’m not going to get too crazy just yet, but I’m definitely going to have some fun,” “I want to show all different facets of my life, so I’m going to be showing things from me doing yoga, taking people on set, cooking, all things that I like to do that’s fun and do it in a sexy fun way.” So no nudity?   “I’m really staying true to who I am as a person and what I’m comfortable with,” I’m not trying to get crazy in my career now at my age, but I’m definitely willing to have some fun and make it a great experience for everybody.”  Moakler’s boyfriend, Matthew Rondeau, is supportive of the model’s new venture. Moakler has three children, two of whom she shares with ex-husband Travis Barker, and while they’re estranged at this time (link), she said they’re aware of her new project. “I don’t think my kids are going to be on that website at any point in time, but my children do know I’m a former Playboy Playmate. We used to spend all our Easters at the Playboy Mansion, and I think there’s definitely a way of transitioning your kids into letting them know what kind of content you do do and don’t do,” she explained.

Purple Rain. Fantastic movie. Defining era for PRINCE. When Prince and his costar APOLLONIA filmed “Purple Rain” together, they weren’t actually a couple.  Who was she dating? She was dating DAVID LEE ROTH at the time.  And Prince was JEALOUS. So jealous he stole a signature move of Mr. Roth’s

Two Reddit users were at Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith’s art show over the weekend say Smith told them the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album is done and that new music would be arriving “very soon” and that the band will tour in 2022.  Both Reddit users posted pics of them with Smith at the art event, where the drummer was showcasing some of his paintings. One commenter was a little skeptical, writing “I feel I’ve seen like half a dozen posts of people talking about meeting Chad in the last week and hearing that the album’s done. Is this just a running gag or is he just meeting with fans an unusually frequent amount of times?”

A Florida concert promoter says he is trying to “get fence-sitters off the fence” by charging people who haven’t been vaccinated for COVID-19 more than 50 times as much as others. Tickets for the June 26 concert in St. Petersburg headlined by punk rockers Teenage Bottlerocket will be $18 for the vaccinated and $999.99 for everyone else. “I’m not denying entry to anyone,” says promoter Paul Williams, per the Washington Post (link). “I’m just offering a discount.”  Attendess will need to show up with photo ID and a vaccination card. He says the move doesn’t violate an executive order from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis banning businesses from making patrons prove they have been vaccinated—which won’t go into effect until days after the concert—though a rep says charging higher prices “unfairly discriminates against people who have enumerated rights under Florida law.” Williams says the response has been “overwhelmingly positive,” though he has received a number of abusive and threatening message from anti-vaxxers. Williams says the cheaper tickets have almost sold out, but nobody has bought one of the “standard price” $999.99 tickets.

Stevens will replace Danny Ainge as the team’s president of basketball operations as Ainge steps down from his role with the organization. Boston’s search for a new head coach will begin “immediately,” per a team statement.  Ainge, 62, has worked as a Boston executive since 2003. He was instrumental in building a playoff team over the last decade, and he also helped deliver the 2008 championship with the acquisitions of Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett. Ainge is not expected to retire, and he could join the Jazz front office in some capacity.

Virginia Tech linebacker Isi Etute was arrested and charged with second-degree murder on Wednesday and is being held without bond.  Police responded to a welfare check on Tuesday where they discovered the body of Jerry Smith, whose death was ruled a homicide. Police said Etute and Smith were “acquaintances” and identified Etute as a person of interest before eventually charging him. The school put out a statement saying: “In the case of a felony arrest, the university has the authority to place a student on immediate interim suspension. Police continue to lead this ongoing investigation, and the university will assist law enforcement agencies working the case in any way it can.”

The wife of Atlanta Braves left fielder Marcell Ozuna said he threatened to kill her during their argument that led to his arrest. Authorities arrested Ozuna last Saturday and charged him with aggravated assault by strangulation and battery. The arrest affidavit said Ozuna’s wife, Genesis, was showering when he took her cellphones and refused to give them back. According to reports – “He threatened to kill her and she threatened to call 911. She took his cellphone from a table and called 911.” After chasing Ozuna outside of their home, Guzman walked back inside while on the phone with the 911 operator. Per the affidavit, while on the call, she said Ozuna was coming back inside and that she was grabbing a kitchen knife for protection. Ozuna told police he had taken his wife’s phones and that his wife had pushed him to the ground and kicked him. He also said Guzman threw a garden light toward him at one point after he exited the house. The Braves issued a statement about Ozuna’s arrest, saying they “fully support Major League Baseball’s policy on domestic violence which stresses to the fullest that our society cannot and will not tolerate domestic violence in any form.”
