The celebrity highlight of the week for me was watching Fleetwood Mac perform with Neil Finn in the lineup on the Ellen show.
I was just as startled as the rest of the world when the announcement was made that the lead singer of one of my favourite bands – Crowded House – object of lust since I was 13 years old was joining one of my other favourite bands.
And I definitely wasn’t convinced it was a good idea. I’m still a bit on the fence. But when I heard him sing The Chain I got giddy all over. It was dizzily physical.
Neil Finn was front and centre alongside singer Stevie Nicks on Wednesday’s episode of Ellen. He thanked his followers on Twitter afterwards for their support regarding his debut.
“Thanks for the many warm messages of goodwill, welcome, concern, bemusement, wonder,” he wrote. “I love being in Fleetwood Mac.”
Burt Reynolds sadly passed away on Friday at the age of 82.
Reynolds’ manager, Erik Kritzer, confirmed he died at Jupiter Medical in Florida from a heart attack.
The actor had nearly 200 film and TV credits, including 1974’s The Longest Yard, 1977’s Smokey And The Bandit, 1996’s Striptease and 1997’s Boogie Nights, the latter of which earned him an Oscar nomination.
Reynolds spent nearly five years as the No 1 box office attraction in America in the 1970s.
His family released a statement saying: “My uncle was not just a movie icon; he was a generous, passionate and sensitive man who was dedicated to his family, friends, fans and acting students,” his niece, Nancy Lee Hess said in a statement. “He has had health issues, however, this was totally unexpected. He was tough. Anyone who breaks their tailbone on a river and finishes the movie is tough. And that’s who he was. My uncle was looking forward to working with Quentin Tarantino (in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood) and the amazing cast that was assembled.”
I loved this tribute by Ryan Reynolds on Inta:
She was reportedly spotted last weekend at the University of Wollongong’s UniBar watching her friend, Tori Levett, DJ and according to Pedestrian she had a rock on her finger.
He writes: “‘I know we definitely get along like a house on fire and we have good banter,’ Tenille insists, even though we’ve never seen her before in the mansion and definitely haven’t witnessed her conversing with Nick and I actually had to go on the show’s official website to check how to spell her name.”
I’m with him – Tenille who? Although she’s now extremely memorable because she got the three “mean girls” of the competition – Cat, Romy and Alisha – booted out of the mansion.
Cat has been widely protesting being painted as a villain and says she’s even been getting death threats over it.
Far out people get carried away on social media these days. Death threats for being a snarky bachelorette? FFS.
I am so out of the loop, I had no idea Kate Hudson was pregnant again. Actually, I think I saw the gender reveal pic on Instagram and promptly forgot all about it.
Anyways, Kate is Very, very pregnant. She’d give my massive baby bumps a run for their money.
The actress, 39, showed off her belly in a new selfie on Instagram taken in her bathroom, which appears to have a pole-dancing pole. As you do.
She captioned the snapshot, “#Outie”.
Hudson and boyfriend Danny Fujikawa announced in April that they are expecting a baby girl. She has son Ryder, 14, with ex-husband Chris Robinson and son Bingham, 7, with ex-fiancé Matthew Bellamy.
Ermagerd! Elizabeth Hurley’s 16-year-old son Damian looks EXACTLY like her.
How freaky is that????
The above is a pic from his Instagram account.
Naturally, he’s a model, which is how his mum originally shot to fame.
And that’s it for this week. Other stuff happened, like a rapper called Mac Miller dying and Nicki Minaj and Cardi B coming to blows at Fashion Week, but they’re not really on my radar, so you’ll have to Google those ones.
Have a great Sunday!
