This week, get ready for another reboot and the most beautiful woman in the world is named.
The Tanners and the rest of the gang are coming back in what is probably the biggest reboot news this year (and believe us, there’s a lot of reboot news). In an interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” actor John Stamos, a.k.a. Uncle Jessie, revealed that streaming service Netflix has ordered 13 episodes of a “Full House” spin-off to be titled “Fuller House.”
Netflix released a statement confirming Stamos’ news as well as letting audiences nationwide know that they shouldn’t expect to see anything until 2016. Bummer.
At the moment, there’s a ton of information and rumors circling the soon-to-be reboot, including plot lines that detail D.J. Tanner-Fuller being pregnant and recently widowed as well as word that the Olsen twins had no idea the reboot was in the works.
All of that aside, let’s hope the full cast can make this an epic reunion and one actually worth everyone’s time.
People magazine has named their Most Beautiful Woman In the World, and her name is Sandra Bullock. That’s right, the legendary, 50-year-old, “The Blind Side” actress procured the title on the latest cover of the entertainment magazine.
Who else was on the list?
Model Gigi Hadid followed up as number two while “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson and pop singer Meghan Trainor filled the third and fourth spots respectively.
There are conflicting reports on the current state of Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina, with her father Bobby Brown saying that she is awake and her grandmother Cissy Houston saying that she is unresponsive.
Bobby Brown shared the news with Grand Prairie concert goers, saying “Bobbi is awake!” before adding “she is watching me,” much to the crowd’s thrill and pleasure.
However, Cissy Houston has countered the claims about her granddaughter, telling People magazine while Kristina is out of the coma, she has suffered “irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive.”
At the moment, it seems Kristina’s quality of life will be nothing like what it used to be. Our hearts go out to the family.
The Sony leaks seemed to have reached further than anyone could think; all the way to slavery. News was revealed this week that Oscar winner Ben Affleck asked Henry Louis Gates Jr., the host of the PBS show “Finding Your Roots,” not to share on the program that one of his ancestors was a slave owner.
In a leaked email from Gates to the CEO of Sony Entertainment Michael Lynton, the “Roots” host expresses his concern with Affleck asking to have the material edited out in order to paint himself in a better light.
That apparently did not stop the program from airing the edited edition. Now that word is out, Affleck has stepped to say that he regrets his actions and is “embarrassed.”
Kylie Jenner is at the center of the latest new craze sweeping the teenage population. The Kylie Jenner Challenge asks teens to plump their lips by sucking into shot glasses as hard as possible; a painful experience.
Doctors have spoken out about the medical concerns related to such a challenge, calling it “ridiculous” and even likening the look of the lips to “an illness that’s contractible.”
Even Jenner herself has said she doesn’t want to “encourage girls to look like her.” Guess it’s time to find a new viral challenge to hop on.
