According to Michael Edelstein, the president at NBCUniversal International Studios, that's all changed - and the project is officially in the works with an estimated start date of sometime next year. What's not clear is how much of the original cast will be participating. Word is that many of them are surprised that a movie 'has been in the works.' As Lady Edith herself Laura Carmichael puts it: “Well, tell my agent, because we’re still waiting to know. We’re hoping that will happen soon.”
Bill O'Reilly Won't Be Returning To TV...Yet - Bill O’Reilly will have a wait a while longer to return to TV because One America News Network has rescinded its job offer.

We wish him luck.” No word on what Bill has coming up next.

Mariah Carey Cameo Cut From “The House” - Actor Rob Hubel, who appears in the new Will Ferrell/Amy Poehler comedy “The House,” revealed that Mariah Carey was a real diva when she was on set shooting a cameo for the film. Well, in case you missed it, Ferrell recently hinted that the reports of her diva behavior were true, and because of it she won’t be in the film. "She eventually did show up. There were suggestions that were not executed. She was on our set and yeah, things happened, and didn't happen," he said during an appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” "She did not make the final cut." But even though Mariah’s scenes won’t be in the film, which opens June 30th, there’s a chance people may eventually see it, with Will admitting it may be “fun” to include them in the DVD extras.
How Much Money Did Taylor Swift Make From Streaming? - Thanks to her return to Spotify, four Taylor Swift albums returned to the “Billboard” 200 album chart this week. And while she may have had 47.51 million streams in her first week back on streaming sites, that doesn’t necessarily translate into a ton of money. According to “Billboard,” all those streams translated into about $310,000 in revenue in the first week, although how much Taylor gets of that depends on her label deal. The week prior, when her albums has limited availability, she earned around $44,000. She’d also earn some publishing royalties from those streams, which comes to about $64,000, an increase from $9,000 the week before, but that money’s divided by all the writers on the songs as well as publishers. Overall, that means Taylor generated about $418,000 in revenue by coming back to streaming, which isn't too shabby.

It took her 149 weeks to land at number one, passing the previous longest ascent, held by Bruno Mars, who took 114 weeks to get there. This is also the second week in a row that a female has topped the Artist 100, following Halsey’s reign last week, making it the first time female artists have been at number one on consecutive weeks since Taylor Swift and Megan Trainor did it back in 2015…Ed Sheeran lands at number two this week, followed by Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar and Justin Bieber.

The singer’s rider for the huge festival leaked online and it sure looks like he’s pretty low maintenance.

In his rider, Ed asks for a bottle of Robinsons Squash, which is a fruit drink, six-packs of Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Fanta Orange, and Sprite, and a jar of Manuka Honey, which is his most expensive request at about $18.
