How’s this for tragic: The Rock put a rock on it, and now Lauren Hashian, The Rock’s girlfriend and mother to his 2 pebbles, can go around calling herself Mrs. The Rock, yet she chooses not to. I will never, ever understand people. According to People, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed on Instagram that he and Lauren got married in Hawaii with minimal hooplah. Pfft! If I were marrying The Rock, not only would I go around yelling at everybody “It’s Mrs. The Rock to you!”, I would have wasted so much of his money on unnecessary hoopla, it would make your head spin.
Somehow, I think Tyrese is still under the very wrong impression that Instagram is going to pay him by the word. Hobbs & Shaw, the Fast & Furious spinoff that caused Tyrese’s brain to burn itself out doing donuts inside his skull pan, opened this weekend and had the lowest opening box office of any F&F movie thus far. According to Variety, it still made plenty of bank ($60 million domestically) and easily met expectations for a franchise spin off. But don’t try to tell Tyrese it wasn’t a flop because it might hurt his feelings. He’s clearly still not over his feud with The Rock and he used Hobbs & Shaw’s performance as an excuse to gloat.
The Oscars, this year’s front runner in the category of Worse Planned Awards Show of 2019, has been steadily declining in ratings over the years yet interest has been building up because of constant issues arising ahead of the broadcast. And by “interest” I mean people waiting to see how terrible the show will be since this is the first time in 30 years that the Oscars will have no host. Meanwhile, over on Twitter, one user stated that the best person for the job would be Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and he quickly let them know that the Academy reached out to him first for the hosting gig, so Kevin Hart was their second, or third, or fourth, or last choice.
Somehow, The Rock is only just now getting around to buying his mom a new house for Christmas. To be fair, according to his post about it on Instagram, it’s not the first time The Rock has given her a crib. His parents divorced five years after he bought them a new house in 1999. That would have been a WWE house anyway, now mom is getting a Disney house. I hope he also bought one for Emily Blunt to make up for their Jungle Cruise pay disparity.
Can you smell what The Rock is cooking? Pay discrepancy! The Rock is making gobs of cash these days as an actor, and his movies tend to do well, which is why he’s paid so much. He’s teaming up with Emily Blunt for Disney’s live-action Jungle Cruise– and he will make $22 million from the flick while Emily is ONLY walking away with $9 million.
The new Jungle Cruise movie Disney will be cranking out in 2020 is showing us all how progressive the company is becoming by having a gay character in it… sort of. Kind of. Well, he comes out Disney-style.
