Sharon Osbourne isn’t done taking people down.  Yesterday, I told you that Sharon named names as to who she felt was responsible for her losing her job on “The Talk.” She called out some of the production team, but she also has something to say about Sheryl Underwood. Sharon said in her new interview with Megyn Kelly, “[Sheryl] had three complaints about her from different producers about the way she treated them… So they sent her to anger management… None of us are perfect. We all make mistakes… And I’m not saying that Sheryl was a terrible person because she treated producers the way she did… So, it’s alright to treat producers that way, but I can’t say anything to a co-host.”

Fans of the late Robin Williams been sending a viral video by actor Jamie Costas to Robin’s daughter, Zelda, and she just wants them to stop. In the video on Jamie’s Channel, Jamie plays Robin Williams back when Robin starred on “Mork & Mindy.” It’s an emotional scene depicting the moment Robin was told of his friend John Belushi’s death by his co-star Pam Dawber, played by Sarah Murphee. Zelda tweeted, “Guys, I’m only saying this because I don’t think it’ll stop until I acknowledge it … please, stop sending me the ‘test footage’. I’ve seen it.” She quickly added, “Jamie is SUPER talented, this isn’t against him, but y’all spamming me an impression of my late Dad on one of his saddest days is weird.” So please, despite all the good intentions, stop blowing up this girl’s laptop and making her sad.

“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Erika Jayne is reportedly taking karate lessons, according to The Sun, the because of all the death threats she’s been receiving online after she and her estranged husband, Tom Girardi, allegedly used settlement money from his clients to fund their lavish lifestyle. Apparently, she feels safer knowing some karate since she doesn’t have the money to afford a security or a bodyguard, according to OK.

“Southern Charm” star Madison LeCroy is engaged to her boyfriend Brett. The two have only been seeing each other for about seven months, according to TMZ. The source says their relationship has been so lowkey that even Madison’s friends haven’t met Brett. Needless to say, this means we can put the rumors over Alex Rodriguez and Jay Cutler to rest, probably…

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson teamed up with Under Armor to provide his new Project Rock performance gear to the football teams at his two alma maters – McKinley High School in Honolulu, Hawaii and Freedom High School in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He gave the team at Freedom a pep talk right before their homecoming game against the number one team in their division, and then he gifted them with the gear. It must have helped because Freedom took down the competition 42-to-7.

While Wendy Williams is out recovering from her medical issues, other celebs will be stepping up to fill in for her hosting duties on her show. The first co-host for the show’s premiere week will be “King of Queens” actress Leah Remini. The show announced that Leah will host Tuesday through Friday, 10/19-10/22, according to OK.

As I told you the other day, William Shatner became the oldest person to go to space at age 90. While he was thrilled with the experience, his former “Star Trek” co-star, George Takei, had some not-so-nice things to say about it. He pointed out, “He’s a guinea pig, so 90 years old is going to show a great deal more on the wear and tear on the human body, so he’ll be a good specimen to study. Although he’s not the fittest specimen of 90 years old, so he’ll be a specimen that’s unfit!” Meanwhile, William appeared on the "Today" show, noting, "I was overwhelmed with the experience, with the sensation of looking at death and looking at life. It's become a cliche of how we need to take care of the planet, but it's so fragile." And as for Prince William’s comments about wasting time and money on space travel when we need to take care of our planet, William Shatner said, "I would tell the prince, and I hope the prince gets the message, this is a baby step into the idea of getting industry up there. So that all those polluting industries, especially, for example, the industries that make electricity...off of Earth."

George Clooney has apologized for being Batman in Joel Schumacher’s 1997 film “Batman & Robin.” George has talked about it before, but he brought it up again at a Q&A at a New York City screening of his new film “The Tender Bar.” George was asked if he could explain the difference between acting in blockbuster movies versus smaller, more character-driven films, and, according to People, he replied, “I did one superhero movie and I f***ed it up so bad they won’t let me near the set. I don’t want to get into all the bat nipples.” Sounds like we weren’t the only ones scarred by that film.

Jennette McCurdy knows that the title of her new one-woman show “I’m Glad My Mom Died” might sound harsh, but she says it’s there to be a “thought-provoking” message about how “nobody has the perfect life.” The former “iCarly” star has opened up about the dark meaning behind the show to People, revealing she grew up with “intense” abuse by her mother Debbie, who died of cancer in 2013. By the time Jennette was six years old, her mom’s sights were set on making her famous, since she herself once dreamed of being an actor. Her mom started bleaching her hair and teeth when she was 10 and taught her to count calories when she was 11. Jennette was dealing with a full-fledged eating disorder while she was on “iCarly,”and when her mom died, she fell further into her ED and alcoholism as she started experimenting for the first time. But now, Jennetts says, “I'm at a place in my life that I never would have thought was possible. And I finally feel free."

Carole Baskin is a fan of Kate McKinnon’s impression of her. The “Tiger King” star tells TMZ that she was “stunned” to see how much Kate nailed her look in pics from the set of the new “Joe Exotic” miniseries. Carole says Kate must be must be “channeling her inner cat lady” as she rocks the flats, jeans, sunglasses, purse and messy hair.

We’ll be getting an intimate look at Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae Young’s upcoming wedding on Discovery+. “Tarek and Heather: The Big I Do” will premiere in December. Heather said, "When we decided to do a wedding special, it wasn't an easy decision because a wedding is so beautiful and intimate and private so we actually went back and forth for months deciding. It was a no, it was a hard no. For a long time it was a no, and as things started going on and then, like, the tux fitting and dress shopping, we were [thinking] how cute would that be to film?"

“Golden Girl” star Betty White is three months shy of her 100th birthday, and her fans want to make sure she makes it. There’s a movement to get Betty protected. One fan tweeted, “Betty White is 99 years old and three months away from 100. Please provide her with national security protection and wrap her safely in bubble wrap. We love her.” Another added, “I’m going to fall apart if we lose #BettyWhite. Please keep her safe.” Calls for the protection made her a trending topic on Twitter yesterday – much to the chagrin of some fans. As one person tweeted, “For the love of all that is holy, you can’t have Betty White trending without a disclaimer attached saying she’s fine!” Agreed!
