Things got scary over the weekend for Anne Heche. She is in the hospital with severe burns, after she crashed her car into a house. Anne was speeding through L.A. late Friday morning, when she crashed her blue Mini Cooper into a garage at an apartment complex. Residents tried to make her get out of the car, but instead, she backed up and tore off. Shortly after that she came to a “T” intersection . . . which she sped right through, crashing into the house, driving almost all the way through it, and causing a fire that basically destroyed it. Luckily, the owner and her pets were uninjured. But Anne was pulled from her car and taken to a nearby hospital. The most recent report from TMZ says she’s, quote, “intubated but expected to live.” Her family says she’s in stable condition. A source says her condition prevented doctors from performing tests to determine if she was under the influence. But TMZ posted a picture of her in her car before the crash, and it looks like she has a bottle of booze with her. The day before Anne’s accident on Friday, a new episode of her “Better Together” podcast dropped, and Anne appeared to be pretty wasted. But it was supposedly recorded the previous Monday – LINK
As you’ve obviously heard by now, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have broken up. And as usual, the “anonymous sources” are here to tell us why it happened. Supposedly, it was the age difference. Pete is 28 and Kim is 41 . . . with four kids . . . so they’re in different places. Quote, “Pete is totally spontaneous and impulsive and wants her to fly to New York, or wherever he is on a moment’s notice.” Obviously, Kim can’t do that. Also, Kanye has reportedly been making things hard on Kim. On purpose, of course, because he’s so mature. Quote, “When Kim is with someone else, Kanye can cause problems with the kids. He tries to divide and conquer. He can’t help it. “Kim is a really dedicated mother, and her kids will always come first. She wants and needs harmony at home and in her life.”
“iCarly” star Jennette McCurdy drops her new memoir, “I’m Glad My Mom Died”, tomorrow . . . and it really sounds like a must-read. In a new excerpt published over the weekend, Jennette describes being harassed by a male boss she identifies only as “The Creator”. She says this guy gave her booze when she was only 18 years old, during a private dinner before the launch of the “iCarly” spinoff “Sam & Cat”. He also massaged her without her consent. She writes, quote, “My shoulders do have a lot of knots in them, but I don’t want The Creator to be the one rubbing them out. I want to say something, to tell him to stop, but I’m so scared of offending him.” A year later, as “Sam & Cat” was coming to an end, Nickelodeon offered her $300,000 as a “thank-you gift.” But there was one condition: She couldn’t talk publicly about her experiences with The Creator. She says, quote, “What the [eff]? . . . This is a network with shows made for children. Shouldn’t they have some sort of moral compass? Shouldn’t they at least try to report to some sort of ethical standard?”

Top Gun: Maverick has sunk the Titanic at the domestic box office. The high-flying sequel, which has been on a roll since its release in May, has now claimed the #7 spot in highest box office sales domestically clocking in at $662 million in tickets sold, beating out the 1997 classic by a good $3 mil or so at $659M.

Brad Pitt is on top of the box office again. His new movie Bullet Train pulled in $30.1 million domestically for its debut weekend. Some experts say the film’s take was disappointing, considering Bullet Train reportedly cost $90 million to make. DC League of Super-Pets, Nope, Thor: Love and Thunder, and Minions: Rise of Gru round out your weekend top five.
Well, here’s one thing House of the Dragon has in common with the original Game of Thrones: apparently, a ton of sex. Actor Matt Smith, who stars as Prince Daemon Targaryen in the HBO prequel, say he thinks there’s “slightly too much” of it all. When asked about all the sex scenes he says: “Are you representing the books, or are you diluting the books to represent the time [we’re living in]?’ And I actually think it’s your job to represent the books truthfully and honestly, as they were written.” When asked if he has his fair share of bedroom scenes, he replied, “Yeah — slightly too much, if you ask me.” The actor has said that, unlike some of his costars, he had watched the original Game of Thrones. So if he feels there’s too much sex, then maybe there is.
Hey guys – let’s all hop in the time machine and transport back to 2005. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline seemed to have a pretty civil co-parenting thing going for years now . . . but it just came to a screeching halt. In a new interview, K-Fed says that their sons, 16-year-old Preston and 15-year-old Jayden, have been avoiding her for months due to the ongoing media circus surrounding her. He also claims they’re upset about an Instagram post last April where she dissed him. All the NUDES she’s been posting haven’t helped the situation, either. And this is why they chose not to go to her wedding. Britney says she’s SADDENED to hear that Kevin is discussing her relationship with the boys. But her husband Sam leaned in even harder on K-Fed. He noted that Kevin’s “gravy train” will be ending soon, because the boys will be 18 and he won’t get child support anymore. He added, quote, “The boys are very smart and will be 18 soon to make their own decisions and may eventually realize the ‘tough’ part was having a father who hasn’t worked much in over 15 years as a role model.”
A few weeks ago, news broke about Michael Jackson refusing a Tupac collaboration because MJ was loyal to the Notorious B.I.G. We have new angles on the story. Death Row producer Danny Boy said Jackson heard Pac’s All Eyes on Me album, and he “went crazy.” In another story, Napoleon of The Outlawz said Tupac was set to record with Michael, but the King of Pop didn’t show up.
When actors get to a certain level of fame and fortune, they can make all the demands they want. And they take advantage of that privilege. Here are some examples:
- The Rock, Vin Diesel, and Jason Stathamwere to suffer “equal pain” in the “Fast and Furious” movies. Oh, and none of them could lose when they fought each other.
- Samuel L. Jacksonmust be allowed to golf at least twice a week. And the production company has to pay for it and take him.
- Jack Nicholson’s“Batman” contract allowed him extra time off filming so he could attend L.A. Lakers home games.
- Queen Latifah added a “no-death” clause to all projects after having a death scene in “Set It Off”.
- Tom Cruisewon’t allow his likeness to be used for action figures or video game characters.
- When George Clooneymade “Gravity”, he requested a basketball court and a private beach hut-inspired place for him to spend downtime in off set.
- When Dolph Lundgrenwas He-Man in “Masters of the Universe”, he had it in his contract that he got three attempts to get his lines right before being dubbed. He made the final cut.
- Roger Moorehad unlimited Montecristo cigars when he played James Bond in “Live and Let Die”.
Apparently, it’s all about the he said she said “I Do” … because Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst has gotten married for the 4th time. Their marriage record says Fred and wife Arles Durst got married in L.A. County … however, the date they tied the knot is unclear. The actual marriage certificate is confidential … that’s a thing in L.A., especially for celebs, but the County Clerk makes public the fact a confidential marriage certificate has been filed. The two have been an item for at least a few months … his band did a show in Pennsylvania back in May, and he brought her out to slow dance together to “Careless Whisper” … before jumping into their hit, “Nookie.” Arles has also changed her last name on Instagram to Durst — she’s got a profile description that reads, “Mrs. D.” Fred’s 3rd divorce was finalized (LINK) back in 2019 from a Ukrainian make-up artist . The guy walked away with all his rights and residuals to his music secured, while having to pay off her car and ante up spousal support. Before her, Fred was married to a lovely lady Esther for 3 months … before that, he was with a lady named Rachel, with whom he has a daughter. 4th time’s the charm!
Beyoncé and Madonna have never done a song together . . . until now. Beyoncé released a new version of “Break My Soul” called “The Queens Remix”, and it combines the original with Madonna’s 1990 hit “Vogue”. One thing it changes about “Vogue” is the list of classic Hollywood starlets. Instead, it pays tribute to famous female music artists like Lauryn Hill, Janet Jackson, Lizzo, Grace Jones, Nina Simone, Solange, Erykah Badu, and Madonna . . . among others.
Speaking of the queen — The question wasn’t if Beyoncé’s Renaissance album would be number one but how much the project would sell in its first week. We have our answer. Renaissance topped the Billboard 200 album chart moving 332,000 equivalent units. Beyoncé’s work is the first album released by a woman in 2022 to hit number one. The last female at the top was Adele with her 30 album. Queen Bey becomes the first female artist in HISTORY to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 with each of her first seven studio albums.
If you ever see Flea out in the wild, don’t bother taking out your camera. It ruins the moment for him. A fan recently thanked him and Anthony Kiedis for taking the time to chat. And Flea praised the guy for not wanting a photo with them. Flea said, quote, “It’s because you all generated a kind and gentle light, and you didn’t ask for a picture. We are always down to talk and chat, asking for a photo ruins it instantly.” In a follow-up Tweet, he said, quote, “There’s is nothing wrong with it. But it ruins having actual conversation. It is a transaction.”
Motley Crue’s Vince Neil made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry last week, and he got a standing ovation. There’s a video of him singing “Home Sweet Home”, and some people are saying he sounds terrible. What do you think?

Today Is National Pickleball Day . . . What Is Pickleball Again?
Yesterday the Cardinals completed a three-game series sweep of the New York Yankees with a 12-9 victory in a record length for a nine-inning game at Busch Stadium III. The Cardinals’ winning streak has now reached seven games. The Cardinals have also reached the two-thirds mark of the season and are in first place by 2 games in the NL Central Division. So check out the Cardinals’ record when they’re in first place at this point of a season: And they are a season-high 12 games over the break-even mark, 60-48. According to stltoday.com Since 2000, the Cardinals have won 10 division championships. On eight of those occasions, they were in first place after 108 games played — in 2019, 2015, 2009, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2002 and 2000. And 38 of their 54 remaining games this year are against sub-.500 teams. These are great stats that should point to an exciting back third of the season for Cardinals fans.
The Yankees were swept in a three-game series for the first time this season. They were swept by the Cardinals for the first time ever in a three-game series.
The only other time in their histories that the Cardinals had won three games in succession from the Yankees in the same year came in the 1942 World Series when the Cardinals won the final four games after losing the first game – LINK
Pete Rose used some colorful language live on the air while he was part of a celebration yesterday with the Phillies. They brought Pete into the booth during the game. Pete was telling an old baseball story, but didn’t clean it up for television. We bleeped it. (They don’t have a delay. Pete is surprised to find that out.)
