Spider-Man was far from home, and now it looks like he has no home. Well, this just stinks. According to Deadline, Marvel Studios won’t be making anymore “Spider-Man” films, and it’s all being blamed on Disney. Here’s how it goes… Sony has had a partnership with Marvel Studios, owned by Disney, to make the “Spider-Man” movies, but now, Marvel Studios has ended the partnership because Disney wanted 50/50 stake in the franchise and Sony said no, taking their Spider-Man, and walked. Fans of the Tom Holland “Spider-Man” movies aren’t pleased. Even “Avengers” star Jeremy Renner has taken to Instagram, writing, “Hey @sonypictures we want Spider-Man back to [Marvel] please, thank you.” Tom Holland’s dad has taken to Twitter to spread #SaveSpiderMan. In the meantime, the late Stan Lee’s daughter, Joan Celia Lee, stands by Sony. According to TMZ, she said, "Marvel and Disney seeking total control of my father's creations must be checked and balanced by others who, while still seeking to profit, have genuine respect for Stan Lee and his legacy." She added, “When my father died, no one from Marvel or Disney reached out to me. From day one, they have commoditized my father’s work and never shown him or his legacy any respect or decency. In the end, no one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney's executives."

She wrote, “I have decided to leave the ‘Housewives’ franchise to explore my next chapter, it’s time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy, and my producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women. My experience at Bravo has been an incredibly magical ride. I am excited for my future, the best is yet to come.” Bethenny has been on the show since its premiere in 2008, with a brief exit in 2010 for a few seasons, but she rejoined for season seven in 2015. Bethenny also wrote a more personal message to her fans; “You started this journey with me in my tiny apartment in my late 30s, wondering what would happen to me. I was broke, single, had no family and no idea what the future held. I am so grateful to you for sticking with me through everything.”

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have hired another nanny for baby Archie. This is their third one since he was born three months ago. A source said, “Meghan is a very hands-on mom, but the new nanny is a godsend. She is extremely professional, with a number of nannying years under her belt, and has fitted into the family really well. She’s great with little Archie and just adores him. Harry and Meghan are very happy with her.” The couple’s first nanny was let go for being “unprofessional” while the second was hired for nights only.

Kim Kardashian posted a video of her 1-year-old daughter, Chicago West, with a snake draped around her neck. Her fans weren’t happy about it, worried about the way Chicago was man-handling the snake. Now, Grant Kemmerer of “Wild World of Animals” has weighed in, saying, “A child at this age doesn’t necessarily understand the fine dexterity needed to handle a delicate animal, and you can see the child is grasping the snake’s neck/body which can make the snake uncomfortable and there’s a chance the snake could be defensive.” Kim hasn’t responded to any of the criticism.

This has been a very good week for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Not only did he get married, he also topped Forbes’ list of the World’s Highest Paid Actors by earning $89.4 million between 2018 and 2019. A lot of his tallied income is from the upcoming “Jumanji: The Next Level” for which he’ll get $23.5 million up front and 15% of the “Jumanji” franchise. He also gets $700,000 per episode for his HBO show, “Ballers,” and he earns seven figures in royalties from his Under Armour line of clothing, shoes, and headphones. Here’s a look at the rest of the actors who made this year’s cut;

Chris Hemsworth, $76.4 million
Robert Downey Jr., $66 million
Akshay Kumar, $65 million
Jackie Chan, $58 million
Bradley Cooper tied with Adam Sandler, $57 million
Chris Evans, $43.5 million

It’s officially over for Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus, and Liam’s the one ending things. He has reportedly filed for divorce after less than a year of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. Miley isn’t happy about the split, and TMZ reports she really wants to work things out. Their split seemed inevitable as the two had been drifting apart for a while now. A month before reports of their separation, Liam was spotted out shopping without his wedding ring on. The divorce process itself should be pretty painless, since the couple doesn't have any kids, plus, they shouldn’t be fighting over money since they apparently have a prenup. Read more at TMZ.com


“The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Tamra Judge just found her wedding dress from when she got married in 1998. Her mom just found it as she was packing up to move and gave it back to Tamra. Now, Tamra wants to donate it to a bride in need. She posted a picture on Instagram of herself in the dress and wrote, “Do you know someone that is in need of a size 2 white wedding dress? I’m giving my wedding dress away ---- to someone in need. It’s in perfect condition (only worn once --.” Here’s how to get in on it – you have to follow Tamra’s company, Vena CBD, on Instagram, tag a friend, and say why you want the gown. Tamra will announce a winner this weekend. The cool thing is the dress is still stylish, despite being from the 1990s, the downside is it’s a size 2, which fits a very limited amount of people (upside – you could use it for the flower girl).
