brandi-glanville-leaves-rhobh

When it comes to casting rumors regarding any of the Real Housewives series, I usually take it with a grain of salt. However, I firmly believe this exclusive report from E! Online is completely true. Brandi Glanville has burned way too many bridges.

The media outlet reports Glanville won’t be returning as a full-time Housewife for RHOBH Season 6. Their source claims “it was Bravo’s decision not to have Brandi return, citing the bad blood between Brandi and various other cast members.” Reportedly, she’s also on bad terms with Bravo execs.

Lauryn Hill Delivers Sensational Nina Simone Cover

Some of the brightest moments of her career occurred when she covered classics such “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Turn Your Lights Down Low” and the smash hit “Killing Me Softly.” The 40-year-old Grammy winner re-emerges to deliver another sensational song cover, or covers I should say.

To accompany Netflix’s upcoming Nina Simone documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone?, a number of musicians headed to the studio to honor the jazz icon. Lauryn Hill was originally set to only record two tracks but became so involved, she ended up tackling six songs.

“Because I fed on this music, both hers and lovers like her, like my basic food, I believed I always had a right to have a voice. Her example is clearly a form of sustenance to a generation needing to find theirs. What a gift.” – Lauryn Hill

Joining Hill on the album, Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone, are Jazmine Sullivan, Mary J. Blige, Usher, Common and Lalah Hathaway to name a few. What Happened, Miss Simone? will premiere on Netflix on June 26. Check out Lauryn’s cover below.

It’s the most random thing ever but wonderfully perfect at the same time. Amy Schumer is set to open for Madonna for her upcoming Rebel Heart World Tour. Sadly though, it’ll only be for her New York dates on September 16, 17 and 19. Damn lucky New Yorkers!!!

The 34-year-old comedian revealed the big news on Twitter in true Schumer fashion. She shared an adorable clip of herself singing a Madge song from her childhood, attached with the following note: “Guess who auditioned for Madonna and got the part?” Check out the clip below.

It’s all about the selfie for Diesel’s new ad campaign. The playful initiative features Tyler Maher, Maximillian Silberman, Christian Hogue and other equally toned male models rocking the brand’s new Hero Fit underwear. The provocative bold visuals are everything you’d expect from Diesel.

“We wanted to do something sexy and raw. The Hero Fit campaign takes the brand’s message to social media in a cool and unique way.” – Diesel artistic director Nicola Formichetti

Customers who are inclined to do so are encouraged to post their own Hero Fit selfies using the hashtag #DieselHero. Check out more photos below.

ryan-phillippe-secrets-and-lies

When Secrets and Lies returns for its sophomore season, Juliette Lewis will be the sole actor to reprise her role. Ryan Phillippe signed on for only one season. In addition, if you ventured to ABC.com after the season finale, it appeared (SPOILER ALERT) that his character died in prison.

It’s no easy feat to follow in Phillippe’s footsteps, but producers have found themselves an equally attractive male lead. Find out who below.

It’s certainly a hot topic these days. From Caitlyn Jenner gracing the cover of Vanity Fair to Big Brother having its first ever trans houseguest, the transgender community is making front-page news everywhere. Google Business is the latest to join in on the conversation.

The company debuts a compelling new spot for Pride month. The first half of the ad focuses on Jake who was born female but identified as male from a young age. It follows his journey including getting comfortable with his changing body.

The clip then introduces us to Hailee Bland Walsh, the owner of City Gym in Kansas City. She believes her gym “should be more than a place to workout. It should be a place to belong.” Watch the skillfully crafted advert below.

bb-17-twist

Big Brother Canada Season 3 was riddled with insane twist after another. Foolishly, I was hoping the US edition would show some restraint and not follow suit. Boy, was I wrong. Houseguests will be thrown curveballs each and every week.

Dubbed “BB Takeover,” two surprise guests will appear each week to introduce a new insane twist into the game. Season 17’s houseguests are in for a rocky ride. I expect the surprise guests will mostly consist of previous contestants.

“This is going to be the biggest ‘Big Brother’ ever!,” teases executive producer Rich Meehan. “Surprise guests, twists every week all summer long and, of course, Zingbot! But the houseguests better keep their focus, because ‘Big Brother’ is all about relationships. Trust me, with all the twists and turns, those bonds will be more important than ever, because at the end of the week, it’s your housemates that send you packing on eviction night.”

In other BB-related news, Julie Chen talked about Big Brother’s first transgender houseguest. Producers were hoping to keep Aubrey Middleton’s transgender status a secret until premiere night, but TMZ leaked the news. Chen tears up talking about Aubrey during The Talk. Watch the clip below.

E! Finds New Fashion Police Co-Host

Fashion Police has finally found a new co-host. Melissa Rivers who’s been an executive producer of the show will step away from behind the camera to sit alongside Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski. Variety reports, the new format will also include two rotating chairs, featuring two different celebrity guests with the trio each episode when it returns this August.

Melissa stepping into the spotlight to continue her late mom’s legacy is only fitting. I’m curious to know though if the network had a difficult time finding a more high-profile replacement in light of the show’s recent bad publicity. If you recall, both Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin left the series after dreadlock-gate.
