Hopper Penn, Son Of Sean Penn And Robin Wright, Continues To Deny The That Nepotism Has Anything To Do With Him
Hopper Penn, perhaps best known for his role in 2018’s Hamilton County Jail, the reality show which earned $25,000 at the bond office, in which he played Sean Penn and Robin Wright’s son waiting to be bailed out on possession charges for weed, shrooms, and amphetamines, recently waded into the murky waters of the nepotism debate and, like a chicken with a thimble full of water, immediately drowned. During an E! News segment he did with his mom, while promoting his latest project, a movie produced by his mom in which his mom plays his mom, Hopper admitted that while “every movie I’ve done has been with a family member,” he doesn’t “think it’s nepotism.” Even though, as he himself admitted, he was “given the opportunity with almost no preparation,” and “it was able to kind of just fall into [his] lap,” as if by magic. But according to Deadline, after giving it a bit more thought, Hopper has come to the conclusion that he said what he said.
Open Post: Hosted By Howie Mandel Wearing An Astronaut Helmet To Protect Himself From COVID-19
If you were in LA yesterday and spotted an astronaut prancing around a parking lot and giving double thumbs up to the paps, it wasn’t Buzz Aldrin on a bender. It was Howie Mandel on his way to a taping of America’s Got Talent. Howie has OCD and has been open about his fear of germs. It’s why he opted for fist bumps instead of handshakes on Deal or No Deal. Ahead of his time, that one. So now that Howie’s forced to go back to his job as host of a talent competition, he’s taking some over-the-top precautions to stay COVID-free. Or it’s a joke. I dunno. Either way, it’s extra straight man theatrics. Continue reading
Simon Cowell Will Be On Bedrest For Six More Months Following His Bike Accident
Back in early August, Simon Cowell broke his back in an electric bike accident. He fell while testing his new $20,000 bike in the courtyard of his Malibu compound (oo, la la!) in front of his 6-year-old son Eric and 14-year-old stepson Adam. Simon had to get spinal surgery, which sounds scary and serious. But mere days later his America’s Got Talent co-star, Howie Mandel, said the injured 61-year-old was doing “spectacularly well, considering”, and was expected to return to his AGT gig before season’s end (didn’t happen). Then, this weekend, a source close to Simon denied reports he was in rough shape, and he was, in fact, walking 10,000 steps a day (wow, 9,900 more steps than my record!). That source joked that Simon’s girlfriend Lauren Silverman had to “run to keep up with him.” Uh huuuh.
Welp, I guess either that was a load of baloney, or walking 10k steps a day on a broken back maybe isn’t a great idea, because now sources are saying Simon must remain bed-ridden for six months. He’s on a cocktail of strong painkillers, has round-the-clock nurse care, and must wear a brace.
Gabrielle Union And NBC Have Reached An Agreement Over Her “America’s Got Talent” Misconduct Claims
Dwyane Wade no longer has to worry about checking his privacy hedges for peacock feathers. Terry Crews can stop thinking of new and more creative ways to ask, “But don’t all complaints matter though?” Because Gabrielle Union’s fight against NBC and America’s Got Talent is almost over. Deadline is reporting that Gabrielle and NBC have reached an “amicable resolution” regarding her accusations of racism, sexism, discrimination, and unsafe workplace practices.
After Prince Hot Ginge And Meghan Markle Encouraged Americans To Vote, Trump Said That He’s Not A Fan And Wished PHG “Luck”
On National Voter Registration Day, Meghan Markle and Prince Hot Ginge did a video, which played during the televised Time 100 special, where they got into the importance of voting and shat on hate speech. PHG wasn’t wearing a “Ginger Bros For Joe” t-shirt, and they never mentioned the name Joe Biden or endorsed Biden. But many still got their assholes twisted up about it, and because there’s absolutely nothing else going on in the country besides this, a reporter from The Daily Mail (of course) asked Donald Trump how he feels about Meghan and PHG “essentially encouraging people to vote for Joe Biden.” Trump didn’t have Mean Girls-like words for PHG (Why would he? PHG is a rich white dude whose mom Trump believes he could’ve had sex with if she took an HIV test). But he did shit-talk Meghan by saying he’s not a fan, which really is the ultimate compliment.
Dwyane Wade Claims That Their House Was “Watched” After Gabrielle Union Spoke Up About “America’s Got Talent”
We all know that when Gabrielle Union vacated her judging chair on America’s Got Talent back in November, there was no bittersweet farewell party with cake and ice cream. Gabrielle accused America’s Got Talent producers and executives of creating a toxic, problematic, racist work environment. AGT, Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment, and Fremantle Media all kind of defended themselves against Gabrielle’s accusations, while NBC claimed they’d be looking into it. Did NBC mean they were going to send over some shady goons to look into Gabrielle’s windows and follow her family around? Because that’s pretty much what Gabrielle’s husband Dwyane Wade says happened after Gabrielle spoke out.
