MTV is moving quickly as it seeks a fresh start on its “Teen Mom” franchise … the network is already filming with Jenelle Evans‘ replacement, Jade Cline.
Sources close to production tell TMZ … ‘Teen Mom’ producers will be filming Kailyn Lowry‘s podcast in New York this weekend, where special guest Jade will officially announce a pretty poorly kept secret … that she’s stepping in for Jenelle.
The podcast is called, “Coffee Convos with Kail Lowry & Lindsie Chrisley” … and MTV cameras will be rolling as the hosts sit down for an interview with Jade.
Our ‘Teen Mom’ sources tell us, show producers felt the podcast was the perfect way to announce Jenelle’s replacement … because Kailyn will also be costarring alongside Jade!!!
We’re told the reveal will air next week … which lines up with the “Teen Mom 2” reunion.
As you know … MTV severed all ties with Jenelle in the wake of husband David Eason killing the family dog as punishment for nipping at their 2-year-old daughter. The dog’s brutal death was the last straw in MTV’s often tumultuous relationship with the couple.
Jenelle has been an empty nester as of late … now that authorities have removed all her kids from her and David’s home in the fallout from the dog murder. Jenelle and David were in court Thursday, fighting to get her children back.
As for Jade … the 21-year-old is a mother of one, and she recently split with her baby daddy, Sean Austin.
Wendy Williams has recently spoken about Howard Stern’s new book called Howard Stern Comes Again. This is the first published work that he’s had of this magnitude in two decades.
Wendy criticized him, and she said that he became a ‘Hollywood insider’ as Hot New Hip Hop recently reported.
‘Howard is so Hollywood right now. And Howard, I love you. but since you’ve gone Hollywood, everything you say is so predictable. Every story is gonna be about, ‘Oh, I love this one and then we went on their yacht.’ He’s a Hollywood insider now which sucks because you started like me, being of the people. But at some point, you sat behind the microphone for too long and now you are the people. It hurts,’ Wendy said.
This went downhill after the man heard what Wendy had said about him.
He obviously did not like being called an ‘insider’ for anyone, and he made sure to vocalize his displeasure.
He did it on his SiriusXM radio show, and he made it very clear how he feels about Wendy. Brace yourselves for what you are about to read:
‘Jealous b***h…You are nobody to me,’ Stern reportedly said.
He continued and said ‘You’ll never be me, Wendy. You’ll never be me. You can pretend to be me, you can pretend to be like me, but you’re not. You don’t have my wit and you don’t have my talent…You couldn’t have that career.’
Stern did not stop there and continued: ‘You’re a fly…What evidence do you have that I’m Hollywood, honey? I grew up a scumbag, and I’m still treated like a scumbag.’
In other news, Wendy recently addressed the subject of drug abuse and her experience with something like this.
She also announced that her family’s Hunter Foundation just launched a substance abuse hotline and her fans really appreciated the initiative.
Stephen Amell’s time on Arrow is officially coming to an end. The actor, who portrays Oliver Queen on the show, took to Facebook to confirm that Season 8 will be the last for The CW’s hit superhero drama.
In an emotional Facebook Live session, Amell revealed that he decided to walk away from the show because he needs to spend more time with his family. The series is primarily filmed in Vancouver, Canada, and now that Amell has a wife and child living in Los Angeles, being away from his family for long periods of time no longer works.
“A large part of this decision is because I’m now a father and a husband and a lot of my life and interests don’t really reside in Vancouver anymore and thinking that’s the best thing for me personally and professionally,” Amell explained.
According to People, Amell started the conversation about leaving the series in May of last year. The actor talked with executive producer Greg Berlanti about his future plans, noting that he would like the series to end on a high note.
Amell told fans that he likes it whenever television shows end at the right time and do not keep churning out seasons because they can.
Following his discussion with Berlanti, the two agreed to end the series in Season 8. The CW has yet to announce when the final season will begin, but we do know that it will be shorter since everything is wrapping up.
Although we have officially reached the end of Arrow, Amell is confident that its sister shows will survive. This includes Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, and Supergirl, all of which have developed strong fan bases.
It is unclear if Amell will ever reprise his role as the Green Arrow in any of the spin-offs, but he did tease that he might reprise the role at some point in the future.
In closing, Stephen Amell thanked his family for putting up with his hectic schedule and for fans for always supporting the series.
As someone fascinated by the early exit of actors from successful series, I’ve long been curious about Christopher Abbott’s abrupt departure from HBO’s Girls in season 3. Though he returned for a cameo in the final season, the speculation has always pointed to a stark creative difference with Lena Dunham. On ‘Watch What Happens Live,’ Andy Cohen got to the bottom of it, and Dunham confirmed their cantankerous relationship, saying Abbott once said he felt “stuck on a sitcom.”
In the video below, you might notice that the press is far more interested in Dunham calling Calvin Harris her “least favorite” boyfriend of Taylor Swift, but I was more entertained by her use of air quotes while saying his name, given that Harris’ real name is Adam Wiles. It’s incredible how a fleeting moment of air quotes can display Harris’ douchiness far more than what she actually said out loud.
The CW series was renewed for season three but it looks like there is an exit already! Dynasty star Nicollette Sheridan has decided to leave the TV show in a shocking turn of events!
Nicollette, who is also known for her Desperate Housewives role, became a regular on Dynasty in season two. She played the character of Alexis Carrington.
But now, the CW and CBS Television Studios announced that she will no longer be part of the storyline.
This following statement about her exit was released: ‘Nicollette Sheridan will be leaving Dynasty in order to focus on some personal family responsibilities. She was a valuable asset to the show and we wish her continued success in the future.’
The actress took on the role that was originally played by Joan Collins in the original Dynasty.
But her exit is only the latest out of a series of such shakeups.
As fans may know, Nathalie Kelley and James Mackay have also left the show.
At this time, it is yet unknown what the screenwriters will do with her character.
The star has also released a statement regarding her departure via TVLine.
‘Working on the Dynasty reboot and reprising the iconic role of Alexis has been thoroughly enjoyable, but the chance to spend precious time with my terminally ill mother is more important to me right now,’ Sheridan explained.
She went on to state that ‘I am grateful to Mark Pedowitz (The CW) and David Stapf (CBS) for allowing me to return to Los Angeles to be with her, and I wish them and everyone associated with the show nothing but success. I am hopeful that my fans will embrace my successor with as much passion as they embraced me.’
Good judgment is apparently not part of the curriculum.
When notorious rapper Tekashi showed up at his former middle school in Brooklyn last year, he was welcomed in and gave a spontaneous performance that quickly turned into a “dangerous situation” — when he threw cash at starstruck students, a newly released investigative report obtained by The Post reveals.
“This used to be my school!” Tekashi shouts to a crowd of kids, frenetic footage from inside the Juan Morel Campos Secondary School in Williamsburg shows.
When the heavily inked hip-hopper “made it rain” by flinging cash in the air, taller teens jumped to snatch the fluttering notes as shorter kids scrambled on the floor to scoop up what the others missed.
Yet it’s unclear why a school staffer allowed the rainbow-maned rapper into the building in the first place.
Tekashi, whose given name is Daniel Hernandez, was expelled in the eighth grade, joined a street gang, and in 2015 posted a video on his Instagram account in which other men were seen having sex with a 13-year-old girl while he touched her and clowned for the camera.
He pleaded guilty to felony charges of using a child in a sexual performance in Manhattan Supreme Court.
In a federal case, Tekashi, 23, admitted in November that he belonged to the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods and took part in shooting a rival rapper, gunpoint robberies and heroin sales. The feds found an AK-15 assault rifle in Tekashi’s Brooklyn home, officials said.
His sentencing has been postponed while he cooperates against co-defendants, but he remains in federal custody, said his lawyer, Dawn Florio.
Eight months before that guilty plea, the hip-hop artist, who has “69” inked onto his face, showed up at Juan Morel Campos on March 19, 2018, and asked to see a teacher, according to the report by the city’s Special Commissioner of Investigation.
A staffer then escorted him to the third floor, where a crowd quickly formed.
In the video, Tekashi gives props to his old teachers, saying, “I used to give them hell,” then tells the students, “If you follow your dreams, bro, I’m telling you — you can do whatever the f- -k you want.”
Students were thrilled.
“No celebrity came to the school before, and he was really popular at the time,” recalled seventh-grader Roselyn Almonte.
“Everybody was singing his latest song. Then he started throwing the money. He kept throwing it. He threw it high.”
While the older kids “grabbed it from the sky,” she said, “the short ones grabbed it from the floor.”
The video shows one seventh-grade girl excitedly showing off what appears to be at least $100 in $20 bills in her hands.
The “Oof” and “Gummo” rapper only wanted to connect with his Brooklyn roots, Florio said.
“Mr. Hernandez was trying to do a good thing by visiting the school,” she said. “A lot of students are fans of his. He did it to give back and show that he’s still one of them.”
Almonte recalled: “Before he threw the money, he gave us a speech — finish school, don’t drop out, go to college.”
Assistant Principal Jason Rosenbaum, who recorded the performance on his personal cellphone, “failed to properly supervise a potentially dangerous situation,” the Special Commissioner of Investigation concluded in a letter to Chancellor Richard Carranza.
Only after Tekashi began spreading his wealth did Rosenbaum ask security to remove the rapper from the building, says the SCI report.
Rosenbaum, in charge because Principal Esther Shali-Ogli was away, told probers he took pictures on his cellphone “merely to demonstrate that no students were injured.”
The city Department of Education said Rosenbaum got a letter of reprimand.
Florio said, “If an assistant principal got disciplined, I think that’s ridiculous.”
Rosenbaum and Shali-Ogli did not return multiple messages.
