After what seemed like eons, it finally happened. Lea Michele got her Satan-granted wish and made her debut in Funny Girl this week. Not only did she get to show the world her Fanny Brice, but she got multiple standing ovations for it! It just goes to show that if you dedicate yourself to being an awful person, the universe will reward you for it! However, it appears as though Lea’s voodoo spell on Beanie Feldstein has run amok and the curse has extended to the general production of Funny Girl because Lea has come down with COVID-19, thereby putting a stop to her Fanny for 10 days. The lighting crew better watch out. Who knows who’s next!
This might seem like yet another appearance of fuck around, and his best friend, find out. But that’s not technically the case. Eric Clapton might be someone who has spoken out against the COVID vaccine before, but he’s also a person who got the AstraZeneca vaccine when it was first available. Since then, 77-year-old Eric has dragged the vaccines as far as possible. But Eric recently caught COVID and he’s stone-cold serious about his recovery, so anyone who was hoping to catch Eric Clapton’s Covidfest is out of luck because Eric isn’t going perform while he’s sick.
Previously on the real soap opera drama that is the current life of former General Hospital star, Steve Burton, he took to Instagram to announce that his wife, Sheree Burton is pregnant with someone else’s child and the two had separated after 23 years of marriage. Steve and Sheree have three children of their own. There was no reason given for their split at the time of Steve’s announcement, but now “sources” are running off to People to spill some details. According to sources, the couple had been “coasting” and grew apart. But sources added that their marriage was also affected by Steve getting fired from General Hospital after refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine So you see, getting pregnant with another dude isn’t that shocking when you think about how her ex was an anti-vaxxer, right?!
Back at the start of COVID, the world was locked down for months. It looked like there was no end in sight. But once the vaccine hit, we cautiously emerged from our toilet paper and sourdough starter-filled homes and saw the streets once again. However, one person didn’t join us in our great return to Applebee’s: Oprah Winfrey! She recently revealed that she locked herself indoors for almost a year. That’s right, coronavirus made the world’s greatest talk show host into the world’s greatest hermit.
Taron Egerton has been having a rough time with Cock (Aren’t we all?). And we’re talking about Cock, the play that Taron is currently starring in at the Ambassador Theatre in London’s West End. Earlier this month, Taron fainted during a performance of the play and was replaced by his understudy Joel Harper-Jackson. Well, Taron is now off the Cock for a week because he got COVID-19.
Rebel Wilson hosted the 2022 British Academy Film Awards ceremony, aka the BAFTAs, last Sunday, and in hindsight, maybe she should have done the whole gig in an extra snug-fitting N95 mask. Because according to sources, many people tested positive for COVID in the days after the BAFTAs were held. Someone might not have gone home with an award, but there’s a very good chance they went home with a runny nose, fever, cough, or persistent body aches. And the only reason we really know any of this at all is that the Producers Guild of America Awards were held six days later, and the attendance was suspiciously low.
