It looks like Britney Spears and her sister Jamie Lynn Spears are done attacking each other in public. Jamie Lynn wrote on Instagram, “Britney — just call me. I have attempted many times to speak to you directly and handle this privately like sisters should, but you still choose to do everything on a public platform. In the meantime, please stop continuing the narrative that I haven’t been there for you or that I’m making things up. I’m happy to share how many times I’ve reached out to you, supported you and tried to help you. This is embarrassing and has to stop. Love you.”

On Saturday, Britney tweeted to Jamie Lynn, “I said some harsh things because you obviously hurt me by the things you are making up about me !!! … I know you worked hard for the life you have and you have done amazing !!!!! But I think that we would both have to agree to the fact that the family has never been remotely as hard on you as they have been on me !!! What Dad did to me, they don't even do to criminals.” She did say, “All I know is I love you unconditionally, but added, “It's so tacky for a family to fight publicly like this !!!" Britney ended with, “It's your life and you deserve a beautiful life !!!! I wish I would be able to do what you're doing and do interviews !!! I'm scared of all of it ... I admire you for being strong ... just know I love you and I think you know that already more than anything !!!" Read more at extratv.com. Insiders tell Radar that Britney Spears’ fiancé, Sam Asghari, has been instrumental in getting the sisters to talk again, even going so far as to set up secret talks.

Former “Teem Mom” star Farrah Abraham was arrested for slapping a security guard at a nightclub Saturday night. But she doesn’t think she did anything wrong. As a matter of fact, she claims that the club’s workers attacked her and that they filmed the whole thing to leak to the media intentionally. Farrah also insists she was singled out, no one else she was with. See the video at tmz.com. Farrah was arrested for allegedly hitting someone back in 2018 after she hit an employee at another club.

Tim Allen is returning to his role as Scott Calvin from “The Santa Clause” for a new series with Disney+. No word if any of the cast from the original trilogy of films will return for the series.

When Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson appeared on “Manningcast,” viewers noticed a T-Rex skull behind him. When Eli Manning asked about it, Dwayne said its name is Stan. FYI- an actual T-Rex was sold at auction for $31 million a few years ago, also named Stan. Did Dwayne buy THE Stan? Possibly. Some fans pointed out you can get replica Stan heads online. Can’t imagine those are cheap either. According to livescience.com, it is, in fact a replica. Peter Larson, paleontologist, president and founder of Black Hills Institute, a company that supplies fossils for research, teaching and exhibit, confirmed, "The Rock purchased from Black Hills Institute a cast of Stan's skull" recently. The institute sells anywhere from five to 10 Stan skull replicas a year, “one of our best sellers." It goes for $11,500 plus shipping and handling. Wonder if there’s an oversize item upcharge.

While a lot of actors and actresses try to hide the work they’ve had done, “I Feel Pretty” star Amy Shumer has no problem ‘fessing up to it. Last month, Amy revealed that she got fillers, but hated them and went to a different doctor to get them dissolved. Yesterday, she posted pics of herself on Instagram showing off the results of her liposuction in a black bathingsuit and wrote on her Stories, “40” (her age), and “170 pounds” (her weight post-surgeries). See the pics at dlisted.com. Back in 2014, Amy told Cosmopolitan that she didn’t judge anyone for getting plastic surgery, but she didn’t think the “never enough” mindset in the beauty industry was good for people. That same year she told TIME, “I’m 32, and I’ve made a promise to myself to not get plastic surgery. And I don’t think that it’s wrong, I don’t think it’s stupid, I’m just really scared of the needle and stuff. And I just think things can go so wrong.” It looks like she changed her mind. She added, “I’m lucky because I grew up pretty delusional about how attractive I was. I was blessed with parents who filled my head with lies.”

John shared, "I really enjoy my life ... it is hard work. It is hard work to balance the time I need to run myself correctly. It's hard work to be the best husband I can be to my loving wife. It is hard to keep connections with those in my life I love and it is also hard to put in an honest day's work."

Prince Harry had his lawyers fire off a "pre-action protocol letter" to the UK Home Office department of the United Kingdom Government demanding security for him and his family while they are in the UK. Harry has had to pay for his own security while he and Meghan live here in the states with their two little ones, but when they travel back to England, he insists the English government should cover the tab, considering he is at risk simply based on being born a Royal, nothing to do with whatever responsibilities he has regarding the Royal family.
