Jamie Foxx has finally broken his silence about his mystery illness. The star posted a video on Instagram Saturday to address the “medical complication” that landed him in the hospital in April. He explained why he kept quiet for so long. “I didn’t want you to see me with tubes running out of me and trying to figure out if I was gonna make it through.” He denied a few rumors about his health scare, though he didn’t specify what the issue was. “As you can see, the eyes are working, the eyes are working just fine. I’m not paralyzed, but … I went to hell and back, and my road to recovery had some potholes as well. But I’m coming back and I’m able to work.” He ended the video by saying that “if you see me out from now on and every once in a while I just burst into tears, it’s just because it’s been tough, man. I was sick, man. But now I got my legs under me, so you’re gonna see me out.” – LINK
Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly are back together . . . and as dysfunctional as ever. They hit up the Orange County Fair the other night, and as they were getting off a ride, some guy just randomly told Megan she was, quote, “Beautiful as F”, and MGK didn’t take that as a compliment to his lady. Instead, he SWUNG at the guy . . . who then swung back, but missed. Their bodyguard jumped in to break it up, but he shoved Megan into a metal railing in the process. The brother of the guy MGK hit hasn’t decided yet if he’s going to involve the cops.

Dave Coulier has launched a “Full House” rewatch podcast. Because it was either that or an Alanis Morissette re-listen podcast. But there’s been some question about whether such TV rewatch podcasts are allowed under the rules of SAG-AFTRA’s strike against studios and streaming providers. “Promotion of/publicity services for work under the TV/Theatrical Contracts” — including podcast appearances. However, podcasts produced by companies that are not part of the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) are not affected by the strike. That means that “Full House Rewind,” produced by the independent L.A.-based PodCo, is in the clear and Coulier can promote the podcast, a rep for the company said – LINK

A consistent power source and a brilliant defender respectively, stars Fred McGriff and Scott Rolen formally entered baseball immortality on Sunday. They became the latest inductees to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, accepting their plaques and taking their places among the greatest who’ve ever played the game.
McGriff, 59, cranked 493 home runs over his 19-year big league career, split among six teams. He played a key role on the 1995 World Series-champion Braves and amassed 10 30-homer seasons and eight 100-RBI campaigns. Rolen, 48, won eight Gold Gloves as one of the greatest defensive third basemen to play the game and starred in the 2006 World Series as the Cardinals won their first title in 24 years. He played in five postseasons, including two World Series, and was a seven-time All-Star during a 17-year career spent with four clubs. He was the first player to debut at under 10% and still be inducted by BBWAA vote. He’s the 18th third baseman to enter the Hall, making it the least-represented fielding position among inductees. Rolen, who suited up for the St. Louis Cardinals, Philadelphia Phillies, Toronto Blue Jays and Cincinnati Reds, called his career “20 years of hypertension and acid reflux” that he wouldn’t trade for anything
