You know how MATTHEW MORRISON was let go as a judge on “So You Think You Can Dance”?  Well, a source claims he was inappropriately messaging a female contestant. Quote, “They didn’t have sex, but he reached out to her through flirty direct messages on social media.  She felt uncomfortable with his line of comments and went to producers, who then got Fox involved . . .”He was fired after they did their own investigation.” There’s no word who the contestant was.  Since several episodes have already been taped, Matthew will still appear on the show for a few weeks, before he’s replaced (LINK) 

OWEN WILSON was the victim of grand theft over the holiday weekend.  The tires and rims of his Tesla were stolen right in front of his house in Santa Monica.Owen woke up Sunday morning to find them gone.  He’s looking at about $4,000 in losses. No arrests have been made, but police are looking at neighborhood security cameras for any leads.  Unfortunately, this has become pretty common in the area (LINK)

Ever seen a Barbie doll with body hair?  Obviously not.  So it isn’t surprising that SIMU LIU had to get his ENTIRE body waxed for the upcoming live-action “Barbie” movie. He said, quote, “Waxing has been an education to say the least.  It was one of the most painful experiences of my life.”  Simu now has a “newfound admiration” for the, quote, “incredibly brave women” who get waxed on a monthly basis. He didn’t give away any details about the movie, and he likes that everyone is just guessing at this point because, quote, “the less you know about it the better” (LINK)

The first part of “Stranger Things” Season 4 broke the record for biggest premiere for an English-language series.  It had 286.8 million hours of view time. The second season of “Bridgerton” previously held the record with 193 million hours. All four seasons of “Stranger Things” were in the Top 5 for the week of May 23rd to the 30th (LINK) 

A huge portion of “Stranger Things” Season 4 takes place in a Russian prison.  Well, those scenes were actually filmed in a prison in Lithuania. The prison ceased operations in 2019, and after “Stranger Things” finished filming there, one of the cells was turned into an Airbnb.  They fixed it up to look all ’80s . . . and even tossed in some Christmas lights as a nod to Season 1.  Your stay includes a tour of the prison and the various filming sites. There’s a catch, though.  During World War 2, the Nazis used this prison as a concentration camp that housed thousands of people . . . most of whom were eventually EXECUTED (LINK) (LINK)

For the second time this year, Netflix is themselves defending a comedian they allowed to make anti-trans “jokes” on their platform.  This time, it’s RICKY GERVAIS in his special “SuperNature”. In a new interview, Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos said, quote, “We’re programming for a lot of diverse people . . . We want something for everybody but everything’s not going to be for everybody “Nobody would say that what [Ricky] does isn’t thoughtful or smart.  You just don’t agree with him” (LINK) 

Mama June Shannon of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is married – and managed to keep it a secret for more than two months. The 42-year-old reality star tied the knot with auto mechanic boyfriend Justin Stroud at a Georgia courthouse on March 23rd.  The couple had been dating for about eight months and decided to “take it to the next step”, Shannon told The Sun.   It’s Shannon’s first marriage – she was previously engaged to Mike ‘Sugar Bear’ Thompson in 2014 before calling it off.   

In his A&E Biography, Bobby Brown talked about his connections with Janet Jackson, Madonna, and Whitney Houston.  About Janet, Bobby said, “Janet was the crush of my life. We “didn’t have that long of a relationship” because “she couldn’t be with a man like myself. I’m from the projects. I’m hood. And her father [Joe Jackson] wouldn’t allow her to be with someone like me.”   When asked if he slept with Madonna. he said, “We didn’t do any sleeping. It just happened. I don’t even know how it happened. She probably knows how it happened. But we didn’t do no sleeping.”  One of the points Brown made about ex-wife, the late Whitney Houston, was that he discovered she was doing drugs on their wedding day.He recalled, “I walked in and, um, saw her doing a line of coke. It was a shocker to me seeing her sniff for the first time.”    Bobby continued, “We always felt that our love was strong enough to overcome any obstacle that was put in front of us. We would still be together if it wasn’t for, you know, drugs. Drugs just got the best of us.”   

David Bowie’s estate is releasing two 50th anniversary editions of his 1972 album, Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars, on June 17th.  The limited-edition collection will come as a half-speed mastered LP and picture disc.  It will also come with a replica promotional poster for the album.   Ziggy Stardust was added to the National Recording Registry by the US Library of Congress in 2016.

A list of actors who regret movies they starred in. Ill give you the actor you tell me the movie

George Clooney – Batman & Robin (1997)

George Clooney. “Let me just say that I’d actually thought I’d destroyed the franchise until somebody else brought it back years later and changed it,” he once said of the role. “I thought at the time that this was going to be a very good career move. It wasn’t.” 

Halle Berry – Catwoman (2004)

Halle Berry remains one of the few actors to accept her Razzie award in person. “Thank you so much. I never in my life thought I would be up here,” she told the audience, before spoofing her own Oscar acceptance speech and thanking her manager. “He loves me so much that he convinces me to do projects even when he knows that it is s***.” She recently said she has been “carrying the weight” of the film’s failure, telling Jimmy Kimmel: “Whatever success it had or didn’t have somehow seemed like it was all my fault. But it really wasn’t my fault.”

Ben Affleck – Daredevil (2003)

If you hate Daredevil, Ben Affleck hates it more. “Daredevil didn’t work at all”, the actor told Entertainment Weekly in 2007. “If I wanted to go viral, I would be less polite.” He’d give the superhero genre another go, accepting the role of Bruce Wayne for Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman, with better, if underwhelming, results. 

Brad Pitt – The Devil’s Own (1997)

He named his personal worst: The Devil’s Own. He called the Alan J Pakula film a “disaster” and “the most irresponsible bit of filmmaking, if you can even call it that, that I’ve ever seen”. 

Jessica Alba – Fantastic Four (2005)

While superhero movies may now be Oscar Best Picture contenders (Black Panther), there was a time when playing a spandex-wearing hero was anything but prestigious. Jessica Alba was one of the first people to jump on the superhero boom playing Invisible Woman in Fantastic Four. The experience, though, left her wanting to quit acting altogether. “I hated it. I really hated,” she told Elle. “I remember when I was dying in Silver Surfer. The director was like, ‘It looks too real. It looks too painful. Can you be prettier when you cry? Cry pretty, Jessica’.”

Bill Murray – Garfield: The Movie (2004)

Bill Murray only voiced animated car Garfield because of a misunderstanding: he thought Joel Coen, of the Coen brothers fame, had written the script. In fact, it was written by Joel Cohen (Cheaper by the Dozen,Monster Mash: The Movie). “I was exhausted, soaked with sweat, and the lines got worse and worse. And I said, ‘Okay, you better show me the whole rest of the movie, so we can see what we’re dealing with,’” he told GQ. “So I sat down and watched the whole thing, and I kept saying, ‘Who the hell cut this thing? Who did this? What the f*** was Coen thinking?’ And then they explained it to me: it wasn’t written by that Joel Coen.” 

Ryan Reynolds (LINK) – Green Lantern (2011)

Ryan Reynolds has never watched Green Lantern all the way through. However, has seen enough of it to know it was a disaster. He let his feelings be known in 2016 film Deadpool, in which the character shoots fictional version of himself in the head for taking on the role. Ouch. 

Josh Brolin – Jonah Hex (2010)

Before playing Thanos in Avengers, Josh Brolin portrayed another comic-book character on screen: Jonah Hex. Unlike the Avengers films, Hex was not well received by critics – or indeed Brolin himself. “I think it deserved that bashing for reasons that those critics will never know,” he told Total Film in 2014. “We were almost ready to drop [the film] when this kid [director Jimmy Hayward] came up. He was an interesting young guy full of energy and he was obsessed with Jonah Hex. I thought, ‘This is either a really bad decision or a brilliant decision.’ [It was] really bad.”

Jim Carrey – Kick-Ass 2 (2013)

Following the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, Jim Carrey distanced himself from the violent Kick-Ass sequel. “I did Kick-Ass a month before Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence,” he wrote on Twitter, denouncing the film. “My apologies”.

Colin Farrell – Miami Vice (2006)

Few actors are quite as straight talking as Colin Farrell, who said of the 2006 blockbuster Miami Vice: “Miami Vice? I didn’t like it so much. I thought it was style over substance and I accept a good bit of the responsibility.” The Michael Mann film has been reappraised by fans in recent years, with many believing it didn’t get a fair ride upon its release. It’s unknown whether Farrell has changed his mind. 

Charlize Theron – Reindeer Games (2000)

In Charlize Theron’s mind, her worst film to date is Reindeer Games. “That was a bad, bad, bad movie,” she told Esquire in 2007. “But even though the movie might suck, I got to work with John Frankenheimer. I wasn’t lying to myself – that’s why I did it.”

Sylvester Stallone – Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot (1992)

As one of Hollywood’s most iconic actors, Sylvester Stallone will always be loved for bringing the world Rocky and Rambo. His fans will try to forget Stop, or Mom Will Shoot, the 1992 buddy-cop comedy that teamed Stallone with Estelle Getty. Sly also hates it; speaking about the film in 2006, he called it “maybe one of the worst films in the entire solar system, including alien productions we’ve never seen”.

Megan Fox (LINK) – Transformers (2007)

The Transformers franchise may have grossed billions of dollars at the box-office, but critics have never looked kindly upon the films. Neither has Megan Fox, who told Entertainment Weekly that “people are well aware that this is not a movie about acting”. She also previously took aim at director Michael Bay, saying: “He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is, so he’s a nightmare to work for.” Fox later retracted the comment, calling it “righteous anger” that should have not been made public. 

Sandra Bullock – Speed 2: Cruise Control (1997)

Sandra Bullock (LINK) singled out Speed 2 as the film she was “embarrassed” to have been a part of. Makes no sense. Slow boat. Slowly going towards an island.”She added: “That’s one I wished I hadn’t done and no fans came around that I know of.”

The Cardinals and Padres played at Busch last night, and people got themselves a little bit of extra baseball.  Paul Goldschmidt continued his hit-streak to 22 games as he hit himself an RBI double.  The Cards went up 2-0 in the second and that’s all the scoring until the 8th.  That’s when the Padres tied things up.  And it was 2-2 until Tommy Edman stole third base with Albert up to bat.  With Edman on 3rd, Pujols hit a sac-fly driving in the game winning run.  This afternoon, the Cards and Padres wrap things up at Busch.  First pitch is scheduled for 12:15 and Dakota Hudson gets the start.

If you were looking for goals, all of them were in Colorado last night.  A 14 goal game to open up the Western Conference Final.  The Avalanche came out on top over the Oilers 8-6 in game 1.  Connor McDavid had a goal and two assists.  J.T. Compher had 2 goals while Cale Makar had a goal and 2 assists as well.  Game 2 is tomorrow at 7PM.  Tonight, we get game one of the Eastern Conference Final.  The Lightning head to New York to take on the Rangers.

The 2022 NBA Finals kick off Thursday night. The Boston Celtics will take on the Golden State Warriors to see which team reigns supreme. The Warriors have home-court advantage as they try to win their fourth NBA title since 2015. The Celtics are looking to recapture the honor of having the most all-time NBA titles. Boston is tied with the Los Angeles Lakers with 17 championships.

A new lawsuit has been filed against Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, making it the 23rd active civil filing.  The plaintiff, Nia Smith, was one of the first women contacted by the NFL star’s legal team when news broke about the lawsuits being filed last year. The lawsuit describes that “in an effort to intimidate her,” one of Watson’s lawyers said to the plaintiff “that they were going to fight the cases to the fullest extent. She also insisted that us Black women must stick together.”  According to documents – she changed her mind on filing a lawsuit, when she heard Watson’s comment about having “no regrets.” The plaintiff was contacted via Instagram, according to the lawsuit, and she had not worked with any Texans athletes before. She was 21 years old when the massages happened, and during the first massage on June 7, the quarterback “kept demanding Plaintiff to go inside of his anus,” according to the lawsuit. The plaintiff reported what occurred to her boss, but according to the filing, Smith “was not offended and decided to give Watson the benefit of the doubt as she thought that maybe he was ashamed and embarrassed by this fetish.” His behavior escalated from the previous session, including grabbing Smith’s buttocks and repeatedly “asking Plaintiff if she wanted his penis in her mouth.” The petition also states that “she felt trapped.”  This isn’t going away anytime soon.

Couple golf things – first things first – the MATCH is today.  It’s Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers vs Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen.  This is the first version of the match where no professional golfers will join the “celebs” on the course.  It all takes place at the Wynn Golf Club in Vegas.  The event is a 12-hole match play format which teammates play the same ball on each hole.

More than a dozen PGA Tour players, including two-time major champion Dustin Johnson, are included in the field for the first LIV Golf Invitational Series event, which will be played next month outside of London. The list of 42 players in the field was released by LIV Golf on Tuesday night. It also includes longtime PGA Tour players Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter, and Lee Westwood. Six-time major champion Phil Mickelson was not included on the list of players released Tuesday. LIV Golf had previously said its events would include 48 players competing in 12 teams of four players. The final six spots will be filled by players invited by CEO Greg Norman and qualifiers from an Asian Tour event. Mickelson — who skipped the Masters and PGA Championship — was among the players who requested a release from the PGA Tour to compete in the first event, which is scheduled June 9-11 outside London. Mickelson hasn’t played on the PGA Tour since missing the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in late January.

Drinking can impair your judgment . . . and drinking a LOT can impair your judgment a LOT. Police in Evansville, Indiana started getting 911 calls about a drunk driver on Monday afternoon.  Witnesses said an SUV was driving erratically on a highway, and crashed into the median.  The crash caused a flat tire . . . and the car started to smoke . . . but the driver KEPT GOING . . . even when the tire fell off. He eventually stopped at a car dealership, where people said he looked “super drunk.”  The employees say he was trying to SELL his now-damaged SUV.  The police showed up, and identified the driver as 30-year-old Jordan Mattingly.  He’s the son of former MLB star Don Mattingly, who’s currently the manager of the Miami Marlins. Officers say Jordan smelled of alcohol and almost fell several times.  He had some White Claw in the SUV, and blew a .291 on a breathalyzer . . . that’s 3.5 times the legal limit.  (Coincidentally, .291 was also his dad’s batting average in the 1993 season.) Jordan is facing “a long list of charges.”

In his 59th meeting against rival Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal got the win in a four-hour, 12-minute battle in the quarterfinals of the 2022 French Open. The result brings their career head-to-head record even closer, with Djokovic leading 30 wins to Nadal’s 29. Nadal is two wins away from capturing his 22nd Grand Slam title, along with his 14th French Open title. He already won the first major of the year in January at the Australian Open, which made him the winningest men’s grand slam winner in tennis history. The “Big Three,” consisting of Nadal, Djokovic and Roger Federer, have won 60 of the last 72 grand slams.
