To review, Harvey is on trial for rape and sexual allegations involving two women. Among the four men and three women chosen, two are African American, two are White, and one is Afro-Latina. As far as professions are concerned, one juror works at an events/sports venue, one works in banking, and another is a security guard. The nationality and professions of the others not available. One person who did NOT make the cut was Gigi Hadid. The supermodel was dismissed early – an expected move because of the attention she brought - Another juror is facing a fine and possible jail time for tweeting about the case. Howard Mittelmark – who made the initial cut – showed up yesterday and was immediately summoned by Justice James Burke, who gave him a copy of his Twitter feed. He was told to retain a lawyer and return to court on March 10th. He’s facing up to 30 days in jail.

Apparently ‘Ye is doing all he can to make the space comfortable for Kim Kardashian and their four children. The insider said they’d have enough provisions to last them for months.

Tommy Davidson Talks Jamie Foxx In Memoir - Jamie Foxx may be a hero somewhere, but not in Tommy Davidson’s story. In his upcoming memoir, “Living in Color,” he describes the Oscar winner as a kind of bully. They first met on the set of “In Living Color” while filming a sketch featuring Jamie as Wanda giving him a message. According to Tommy, Jamie veered off script by strenuously pulling on his underwear, trying to rip them off and leaving him naked. Apparently Jamie was all about getting the cheap laugh. Tommy realized that Foxx was “competitive” and his style of humor was to be “mercilessly mean.” And when he found out that he could score points with “In Living Color” creator Keenen Ivory Wayans by making fun of Tommy, he was relentless. The two were reunited on the set of their 1997 movie, “Booty Call.” The tensions immediately resurfaced because Jamie didn’t understand the concept of “supporting actor” and “was determined to steal every scene he could.” Davidson wants to believe that Foxx is a better person now, but they aren’t friends at all. Meanwhile, “Living in Color” drops on January 28th. ONE MORE THING! We’re not sure if Jamie has heard about or read about Tommy’s book, but he didn’t seem to be bothered during his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show The two played a round of “Burning Questions” that was completely hilarious.

MrBeast ups prize money for half-court shot winner: Anthony Peterson made a half-court shot during a contest at last Friday’s New York Knicks game. Usually this would mean he took home a big prize but not this time. The contest was sponsored by the NY State Lotto so instead of getting 1-grand he got $1,000 in scratch offs. "[I made] $500 off the scratchers," Peterson told ESPN in an interview. His shot went viral online after the internet got pretty mad about his not so grand prize. The outcry made its way to Jimmy "MrBeast" Donaldson and the YouTuber went into his pocket to make it right. Peterson says "(MrBeast) tweeted telling people to tell me to DM him for $10,000. I thought it was a joke but then my friends were like "nah this guy is for real for real.” And he is. MrBeast followed Peterson, DM'd him, and immediately made good on his tweet.
