Blind Item #5

It is going to be pretty tough to win that network reality show for this back in the day somebody when you are still doing lines of coke every day after rehearsal.

Blind Item #4

This former late night actor turned mostly movie actor is cheating on his actress significant other again. I don't understand why she stays.

Blind Item #3

This now former A- list mostly television actress from a cable show which saw better days a couple seasons ago in a different place looks a decade younger and it is not just because of some recent plastic surgery. She says she can breathe again after getting away from her co-star.

Blind Item #2

This A/A- list very smart model lost her cool when a pap kept taunting her about her Oscar dress and how the Goopster had worn it five years earlier.

Blind Item #1

I guess what goes around comes around as this former A list athlete who is probably retiring and is a home wrecker is being cheated on by her athlete boyfriend who was part of the home wrecking.

Lady GaGa Replaces Beyonce At Coachella



Lady Gaga is coming to Coachella. She announced Tuesday night she will be performing at the music festival for both weekends in April. Gaga will take the headlining spot that had been Beyonce's; pregnant with twins, she announced last week that her doctors recommended she bow out. She rescheduled her performance for next year.

Gaga is set to launch her "Joanne" world tour this summer, so Coachella will be a warm-up for her of sorts.

She may have given fans a sneak peak of what to expect with her Super Bowl performance in February.

Besides Gaga, other performers at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, include Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar.

Casey Affleck Talks About Sexual Assault Backlash - Kind Of



Casey Affleck was awarded the best actor Oscar on Sunday for his role in “Manchester by the Sea,” but not everyone was thrilled to see the star take home the golden statue.

Criticism of Affleck stems from a 2010 sexual harassment lawsuit against the actor, which was filed by two women who worked with him on “I’m Still Here.” The case settled outside of court.

Affleck opened up to the Boston Globe about the reactions to him winning Best Actor.

He said neither side from the case is able to discuss the details of what happened which is a really nice excuse. Still he said, after a pause, “I believe that any kind of mistreatment of anyone for any reason is unacceptable and abhorrent, and everyone deserves to be treated with respect in the workplace and anywhere else.”

Of the backlash Affleck said, “There’s really nothing I can do about it. Other than live my life the way I know I live it and to speak to what my own values are and how I try to live by them all the time.” The thing is though he could have strongly condemned sexual assault rather than a vague mistreatment statement. Also, during his speech was a chance for him to really try to make amends and he didn't.

'Fresh off the Boat' actress Constance Wu slammed the star when his Oscar nomination was announced and fellow actor B.J. Novak took to Twitter on Sunday to quip “Can we check Best Actor again.”

Oscar Ratings Hit Nine Year Low



At least this year’s show wasn’t the longest in history. The 74th Oscars show in 2002 was the longest at 4 hours and 23 minutes.

Unfortunately for ABC, the length of the show didn’t add up to high ratings.

This year's Oscars averaged 32.9 million viewers -- a drop of more than a million viewers from last year's telecast. It was the smallest Academy Awards audience since 2008.

Audience erosion has been Oscar's trend for three years straight. In both 2014 and 2013, the awards show reached more than 40 million viewers, but in 2015 only 37.3 million tuned in.

In 2016, producers of the show attempted to introduce a “thank you scroll” at the bottom of the screen. Nominees were asked to submit the names of the people they wanted to thank ahead of time in order to chop down the length of the speeches. That idea flopped and winners went rogue with their often very long-winded acceptance speeches.

 

Jackie Warner Arrested For Backing Into Police Car While Drunk And Wearing No Pants



Jackie Warner, a former Bravo star who hosted the program Work Out, has been arrested. She was arrested last Friday for alleged assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer, according to the West Hollywood Police Department. Police were called when a witness said Jackie drove her car into a pole. When police arrived, she backed her car into the police car.

She was arrested and taken to jail ,where her bail was set at $60,000.

The incident took place around 5:45 p.m. and Warner was also charged with driving under the influence and a hit and run for property damage.

Warner allegedly went to lunch on Friday afternoon and drank one martini.

She took an Uber to and from the restaurant.

However, sources claims that Warner took an Ambien to help her fall asleep when she got home... and she then woke up in the the hospital, with no recollection of ever driving that day. This same source says Warner was not wearing any pants when she was arrested; she was taken into custody while donning just underwear. Jackie blew an 0.8 which kind of contradicts her story. I always thought Jackie quit drinking after her shows ended. Guess not.

 

Your Turn

Would you like the Oscars shorter or you really don't care since it is once a year?
