Jenna Ortega spouted off about changing her lines on her show, “Wednesday,” because she didn’t like the way they wrote her character at times, and TV producer Steven DeKnight shared his thoughts on that. Steven (who didn’t work on the show, just to be clear) called her out on Twitter for dumping on the show’s writers so publicly. He said, "She’s young, so maybe she doesn’t know any better (but she should). She should also ask herself how she would feel if the showrunners gave an interview and talked about how difficult she was and refused to perform the material. This kind of statement is beyond entitled and toxic.  I love her work, but life’s too short to deal with people like this in the business."

Gwyneth Paltrow is being called an “almond mom” after an interview on The Art of Being Well podcast where she described her “daily wellness detox routine” went viral. She said she intermittently fasts, having a plain coffee in the morning then holding out until lunch before having a bowl of bone broth. She then exercises for an hour and saunas for 30 minutes. And when dinner rolls around, “I try to eat, you know, according to paleo. So, lots of vegetables.” She added, “It’s really important for me to support my detox.” According to hellogiggles.com, many are calling her out on TiKTok, saying things like, “What’s she detoxing??? The bone broth???,” “Broth ain’t lunch girlypop,” “This literally sounds like a colonoscopy prep,” and on a more serious note, “This is promoting eating disorder culture and I don’t appreciate this being available for teenagers and young adults. This is not healthy, and “I’m pretty sure that we can’t call eating disorders wellness in 2023.” As far as her IV vitamin drips, one person asked if she was too rich to swallow vitamins whole.”

The "Vanderpump Rules" season 10 reunion might not happen because of the restraining order Raquel Leviss took out against Scheana Shay. Scheana’s lawyer is accusing Raquel of "sabotaging" the show by taking out the RO, saying, "It just can’t happen in any meaningful way while this order is in place. As of now, the reunion show is scheduled to film on March 23.

According to OK, Scott Disick is returning to Season 3 of “The Kardashians” after all. A source said, "Scott filmed for the show last week after inking a massive contract to be in the upcoming season. He was initially against coming back because he didn't want to be the villain in Kourtney and Travis' storyline." On top of that, "He felt that he owed it to his fans and knew that they wanted to see him back on the show again, at least for one more season." But, Scott was allegedly given a lot of money to come back for the show, which according to an insider is what really brought him back.

According to People, The Bella Twins recently took to their new radio show, “The Nikki & Brie Show,” to share the news that they have left professional wrestling to pursue other interests. The sisters have also revealed they are going back to their real names- Garcia, with Nikki noting, "Today we are officially from here on out, the Garcia Twins, Brie, and Nikki Garcia." The sisters revealed that they decided to make the change instead of signing a new deal with WWE.

Tammy Slaton from “1000-Lb Sisters” surprised fans with a TikTok from the front seat of a car. The big deal is that Tammy has never been able to fit in a front seat. She can now after losing about 200 pounds. According to People, Tammy previously weighed 717 pounds before going to a rehab center in Ohio to lose the weight she needed to for bariatric surgery. By the way, there’s a rumor that Tammy and her new husband, Caleb, are expecting. The two met in weight loss rehab and decided to get married after only knowing each other for a month. The wedding episode airs March 21st.

Ryan Reynolds has sold Mint Mobile to T-Mobile for $1.35 billion to be split between him and the other owners of Mint Mobile in a combination of cash and T-Mobile stock. The full $1.35 billion will be theirs if Mint Mobile performs well after the acquisition. Ryan will stay on with the company (to make even more money). Ryan released a statement regarding the sale, exactly in a way you would expect him to, saying, “We are so happy T-Mobile beat out an aggressive last-minute bid from my mom Tammy Reynolds as we believe the excellence of their 5G network will provide a better strategic fit than my mom’s slightly above-average mahjong skills.”

Jacob Elordi, who plays Nate on “Euphoria,” has gotten a restraining order against a man who is stalking him at his home and leaving him gifts. TMZ shared photos of the man, along with a letter he wrote to Jacob professing his love. Apparently, the man has a criminal history, and Jacob said he is the same guy Nicolas Cage said broke into his house back in 2007, waking Nicholas up in the middle of the night while wearing nothing but one of Nicholas' leather coats.

Kanye West won't face any charges for grabbing and throwing a paparazzo's phone in the road back in January when he was just trying to watch his daughter, North, play basketball. Kanye had asked the paparazzi in the video not to film him while he was trying to spend time with his kids, but they didn’t care. So, he grabbed the phone and chucked it, which the paparazzo in the passenger seat filmed with their phone. As far as charges go, there was only minor damage, and that was just to the $30 case on the phone. Also, the female paparazzo declined to press charges against Kanye. I’m surprised she’s not suing for the $30 for a new phone case and millions for emotional damages.

Chaka Khan was asked about the list of Rolling Stones’ 200 best singers of all time, and she didn’t seem too happy that she was outranked by some other singers. She was specifically asked on “The Originals Podcast” about her feelings on Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, and Adele, and according to ET, she basically threw shade at all of them. Now, she’s realized the err of her ways and apologized, saying in Instagram, "Recently, I was asked about a list of the 'greatest singers of all time' and instead of questioning the need for such a list, I was pitted against other artists and I took the bait.” She continued,  "It was not my intention to cause pain or upset anyone. To anyone that felt this way, I sincerely apologize." No word on if her apology has been accepted, but I don’t think she’s going to invited to sit with them at lunch anymore.
