Sarah Paulson Admits She Wasn't Into "AHS: Roanoke" Either - “American Horror Story: Roanoke” isn’t the most popular season with fans of the anthology series. In a new interview, star Sarah Paulson says she wasn’t that into the season, either. Appearing on the “Awards Chatter” podcast, the actress says she was “so underwhelmed” by the season that she almost asked Ryan Murphy if she could “sit this one out.” At the tie, she had just finished filming “American Crime Story: The People vs OJ Simpson,” and says her role in “Roanoke” paled in comparison to her role as Marcia Clark. “I was happy to be back for Cult, but Roanoke, I kinda went kicking and screaming. I felt really kind of trapped by my responsibility and my contractual obligation to do American Horror Story,” she adds. “As much as it’s my home and I’ve loved it always, it was the first time I felt like I wish I could have gone to Ryan and said please let me sit this one out.”
Joy Behar Makes Homophobic Joke About NFLer After His Coming Out - The ladies of “The View” had a rare moment yesterday – they all agreed on something. Supporting Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib being the first active NFL player to come out as gay, Joy Behar ended up ruining the moment with a homophobic joke. Everything well as the panel discussed Nassib’s coming out during Pride Month, McCain calling it “fantastic” and hoping it’s “a step forward.” But there was an awkward pause among the ladies when Behar chimed in with an off-color joke: “after they said penetration in the end zone, they lost me.” The panel didn’t want to touch that one, shaking their heads with some awkward laughs. Later on, Behar walked back on the “inappropriate” joke, telling viewers to “make believe I never said it.”
Vanessa Bryant To Settle Lawsuit Over Kobe's Helicopter Crash - Vanessa Bryant has agreed to settle a lawsuit against the pilot and owners of the helicopter that crashed last year, killing Kobe Bryant, their daughter, Gianna, and seven others. The settlement would end the negligence and wrongful death lawsuit we told you about. To review, it was filed against the estate of the pilot, Ara George Zobayan, and Island Express, the owner and operator of the helicopter. Kobe’s widow, their daughters, and relatives of other victims filed a settlement agreement notice with a federal judge in Los Angeles yesterday. The terms of the confidential deal weren't disclosed. If the court approves, the settlement would end a negligence and wrongful death lawsuit filed against the estate of the pilot and the owner and operator of the helicopter that crashed into a hillside on January of last year. The others killed were Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife, Keri, and their daughter Alyssa; Christina Mauser, who helped Bryant coach his daughter’s basketball team; and Sarah Chester and her daughter Payton. Alyssa and Payton were Gianna’s teammates.
Gwen Stefani & Blake Shelton Are NOT Married...Yet - Just in case you were wondering, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are NOT married. As we told you, they sparked rumors of secret nuptials earlier this month when she was photographed wearing what appeared to be a diamond wedding band with her engagement ring. Now an inside source is ending the speculation. “Gwen & Blake did not get married,” the insider said. “They’re still really happy and engaged and doing well. Nothing has changed in their relationship. They’re keeping any wedding details and plans tight lipped. Even her closest friends don’t know many details on anything involving the wedding.” The musicians get great joy from surprises, which is why they’re keeping their plans a secret. “They seem to want everything to be a surprise, but they can’t wait to really be husband and wife,” the source explained. “They were literally laughing over the rumors that they did in fact get married. They both like to mess with everyone at times and that’s really all it was.”
Johnny Depp, Alec Baldwin Complain About "Biased" Divorce System - Johnny Depp and Alec Baldwin have both made headlines with their respective high profile – and bitter – splits. The stars air their grievances about the "biased" divorce system in the foreword to Greg Ellis’ new book “The Respondent: Exposing the Cartel of Family Law.” Depp is still embroiled in a heated court battle with his ex-wife Amber Heard, four years after the divorce was finalized. As the actor is accused of substance and physical abuse, Ellis describes Depp as the target of a “campaign [for] fame” by Heard. Depp likens his divorce proceedings to being “trapped in a dungeon.” Baldwin was entangled in a custody battle over his daughter Ireland after splitting from wife Kim Basinger in 2002. The actor says he felt “humiliated” as his divorce proceedings dragged on, comparing the California family law system to a “criminal organization” that “extorts money” by “inflicting pain.” “Divorce court, divorce mediation, custody evaluations, forensic accountings, it's all a foreign land to most people,” he adds. “One where you can easily lose your sanity coming to terms with the senseless rules that govern there, rules that will potentially affect the rest of your life,
Paris Hilton Is More Interested In Babies Than Billions - Paris Hilton has changed her outlook on life since filming her YouTube documentary “This Is Paris.” In the candid doc, the heiress said she wouldn’t slow down until she makes one billion dollars… but now she’s “more interested in babies” than billions. Appearing on the “Just For Variety” podcast, Hilton says becoming a billionaire was “such a goal” of hers when she wasn’t “happy in [her] personal life.” But now that she’s “incredibly happy and in love” with her fiance Carter Reum, she’s realizing it’s not money that’ll bring her happiness – it’s family. She’s planning on starting one next year. “I always saw money as freedom and independence, and not being controlled, I think that’s why I just had that as my focus in life,” she says. “Now that I am so incredibly happy and in love in my personal life I’m not really interested in billions anymore. I’m more interested in babies.”
Ex-MLB Star Ben Zobrist Accuses Pastor Of Affair With His Wife During Marriage Counseling - Ex-MLB star Ben Zobrist is taking a swing at his pastor Byron Yawn. The two-time World Series champion has filed a lawsuit in Nashville, Tennessee accusing Yawn of having an affair with his wife of 15 years Julianna Zobrist. Byron was the couple’s trusted “spiritual mentor” during their pre-marital counseling in 2005, and marriage counseling in 2013. Yawn started speaking to Julianna “daily” in 2018, and by 2019 they allegedly started meeting for sex and continued until 2020. Zobrist is seeking a total of $6-million in compensatory and punitive damages, claiming Yawn “exploited” the counseling he was providing the couple to continue an affair with Julianna – for example, by encouraging Zobrist to “give his wife some space.” Plus, Yawn was acting as Executive Director of Zobrist’s Patriot Forward Charity organization, which Zobrist claims Yawn also used as an “excuse” to meet with Julianna.
ICYMI: Matthew Perry Once Passed On Making Out With Sarah Paulson At "Makeout Party" - Sarah Paulson’s worst kiss story should be in the hall of fame of stories. During a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, she shared how Matthew Perry rejected her.
Apparently Sarah ended up at Gore Vidal’s makeout party. There was a hat with names in it, and party guests were supposed to make out with whomever they picked. When Matthew pulled her name from the hat, he left the room. “I was like, ‘Well, let’s kiss!’ And he was like, ‘No,’” she said. But the “Ratched” star got the last laugh when she and the “Friends” alum ended up working together on “Studio 60.” Since they were playing romantic partners on the short-lived Aaron Sorkin drama, she ended up getting her kiss. She said, “I got several kisses, and boy, did he regret not taking me up on it back at Gore Vidal’s makeout party!”
Erika Jayne Dragged For Non-Glam Appearance Amid Scandal - As Erika Jayne’s spending habits come into question amid her and husband Tom Girardi’s legal scandal, folks think her financial woes are showing. She’s getting dragged over pics of her recent non-glam trip to the gas station. As we previously reported, the prosecutors in Girardi’s embezzlement case are out to prove that he was funneling “10s of millions of dollars” of clients’ money to fund Jayne’s lavish lifestyle. Ironically, Jayne sported a “Billionaire Boys Club” shirt during her as station pit stop that’s making the rounds online, but folks think she looked anything but luxurious – like maybe she’s lost her glam squad amid the scandal. Jayne has hit back at the haters on Twitter, sharing a GIF from “Real Housewives of Orange County” where she says, “Go be offended at your own life.” “Goodnight Twitter, please be in full glam when pumping gas,” she writes.” Apparently it’s a big deal.” Meanwhile… Jayne and Girardi are being hit with new allegations when it comes to their finances. According to a motion filed by the bankruptcy trustee investigating Giradi’s assets, his law firm gave Jayne’s business more than $20-million in loans for years. "Erika has created a new company after the news broke of this scandal, which appears to simply be a successor company," the court docs read. "Erika has multiple financial accounts and the Debtor's books show Erika owes large receivables to the Debtor.”
Tristan Thompson About to Win Libel Suit - Looks like Tristan Thompson is going to prevail in his lawsuit against Kimberly Alexander. As we told you, he sued her for libel because she wouldn’t stop claiming that he’s the father of her five-year-old son. To review, the paternity test he took proved that he wasn’t the child’s father, but she thinks that he and Khloé Kardashian fixed the results.
According to new legal docs, the court says it's leaning towards granting the NBA baller a nearly $53-thousand default judgment. He asked for $100-thousand, but the judge says he didn’t offer any evidence of losing any specific endorsement deals because of Kimberly’s allegations. Maybe the money will be able to soothe Tristan’s broken heart since he and Khloé recently split.

Oli London Slammed For Announcing They ‘Identify As Non-Binary Korean’: British influencer Oli London has come out as nonbinary and declared their pronouns to be “they/them/Korean/Jimin.” The last two are in reference to London’s over 15 surgeries to make them look like a K-pop star. After receiving a bunch of hate online for posting an image of the Korean flag made with rainbow colors, London took to YouTube to explain that they “do identify as Korean” and that whether “you identify as a potato [...] as a smurf [or] a Disney prince, it doesn't matter how you identify, we are all entitled to identify in different ways.”
Josh Duggar's Child Porn Trial Likely to be Pushed Back: Looks like Josh Duggar might get a win in court. In case you missed it, he asked for his child porn trial to be postponed until February 2022 because of its complexity. Attorneys for the United States don’t mind delaying it, but they’re suggesting three months because they don’t want to wait until next year. Now we have to wait to see what the judge says because he’s the only who can sign off on changes to the trial’s timeline.
Kendall Jenner Gets RO Against Another Alleged Stalker: Another day, another stalker for Kendall Jenner.

She filed for and got a temporary restraining order against Flores. She’d due in court on July 13th for a hearing in the matter.
Reese W's Daughter Dating a Ryan Phillippe Lookalike: The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree with Ava Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon’s daughter with Ryan Phillippe.

Meryl Streep Gets Subway Stop for Birthday: What do you get for the person who has everything? If that person is a big star like Meryl Streep, you get them a subway stop. Adrian Wilson is the artist and photographer behind the project, which made the 72nd Street subway station signs in Manhattan say “72nd Steep” in celebration of the Oscar winner’s 72nd birthday. “It was one of these ideas that you have and you’re just like, ‘That’s so perfect’ — and she’s a national treasure, so everyone’s going to love it,” he said. He planned and installed the display along with his artist friend Matt Duncan, all with the use of easily removable stickers on the last “t” of the station’s signs.
Meghan & Harry Register Domain In Daughter's Name: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry launched the website for their Archewell charity donation named after baby Archie earlier this year, and now folks think they have similar plans for baby Lilibet Diana. The couple has registered several domains in their daughter – although a rep tells “People” it’s “customary” for public figures to call dibs on the domains to “protect against exploitation.”

Court Docs Show Britney Spears Has Been Fighting For Years To End Conservatorship - Britney Spears is scheduled to speak at her conservatorship hearing later today, and a new report reveals just how much she's hated being under her father Jamie's control. A report in the "The New York Times" reveals that previously sealed documents in Brit's conservator case show that Brit has wanted the conservatorship to end for a very long time. According to an investigator in 2016 Brit said she “sick of being taken advantage of” and felt she was “the one working and earning her money but everyone around her is on her payroll.” Brit told the court her dad Jamie was "obsessed" with controling her and she wanted him out.

Trump Asked The Justice Department To Look Into "SNL" - It’s one thing not to be able to take a joke. It’s something else altogether to want to prosecute the jokester to the full extent of the law. That, apparently, is what President Trump wanted to do. After watching a rerun of “Saturday Night Live,” the former commander-in-chief to to Twitter – before he was banned – to air out his grievances. “It’s truly incredible that shows like ‘Saturday Night Live,’ not funny/no talent, can spend all of their time knocking the same person (me), over & over, without so much of a mention of ‘the other side,’” he wrote. “Like an advertisement without consequences. Same with Late Night Shows. Should Federal Election Commission and/or FCC look into this?” hile most may have taken the question of the FCC looking into the matter as ridiculous – after all, the satire of “SNL” is a protected form of speech – Trump did not. According to two people familiar with the matter, he asked advisers and lawyers in early 2019 about what the FCC, the court system, and the Department of Justice could do to make the sketch show, Jimmy Kimmel, and other late-night comedy mischief-makers pay for making fun of him. When Trump found out that there was no legal recourse or anything that the FCC or the DOJ could do, he was disappointed. “Can something else be done about it?” Trump asked, according to the source, to which they responded with some version of “I’ll look into it.” For the record, that didn’t happen. Representatives for “Saturday Night Live” and Kimmel haven’t commented so far. Meanwhile, Trump is slamming the reporting as fake news in a newly released statement.

Rachel Lindsay Talks "Toxic Fandom" Of Bachelor Nation - Rachel Lindsay says Chris Harrison’s racism controversy isn’t where the trouble ends for the Bachelor franchise.

They have constantly given it a product it wants: a midwestern/southern white, blonde, light-eyed Christian,” she writes. “They are afraid of change. They are afraid to be uncomfortable. They are afraid when they get called out."
