As we told you, Denise Richards is leaving “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” But apparently, she didn't leave because she got “mean-girl’ed” by her castmates. Sources close to Denise say she was “so over the show” that she walked without giving them a chance to win her back. But Bravo insiders are telling Page Six a different story, saying the real reason Denise left was because Bravo wouldn’t pay her the “excessive” amount she asked for to return for a third season. An insider said, “Bravo called her last week to ask her if she wanted to return, and she took a couple of days to think about it. She would happily have come back, but for a huge price.”

“Teen Mom” fans were outraged after Jenelle Evans‘ husband, David Eason, posted a video over the weekend of himself eating the family’s pet goat, Elvis, and showing off the animal’s severed head, according to OK! Remember, this is the same guy who killed the family dog, Nugget, in 2019, for biting at the kids’ feet and bicycle tires when they were riding. Yes, rather than bring it to a shelter, he decided to kill it himself, the way his family has always done, he said. So, back to the goat… he posted a pic of his “goat nuggets” and a pic of himself biting into the meat, adding, “This is Elvis, the little baby we had last year.” To prove it, he even posted the severed head in the trash on social media. Fans were angry that he not only killed the family pet, but that he posted it online. As one said, “They have no respect or integrity for living things… You can humanely raise, harvest and butcher an animal. You don’t need to post a picture of it in a trash can covered with f***ing Coors Light cans.” The one thing fans are happy about is that they are no longer on the show, which means no more funding their disgusting life.

Drew Barrymore’s show premiered with two highly anticipated reunions. First, Adam Sandler reprised his “50 First Dates” role to update Drew’s character on their current life. He told her in a video (like in the movie), “You have a thing called amnesia and I am your husband. We have a daughter and she's about 40 now, or something like that.” He also brought along Allen Covert, who played Ten-Second Tom in the movie. Second, her “Charlie’s Angels” co-stars Lucy Liu and Cameron Diaz joined her. Drew shared a story about trying to get in touch with Cameron for the show and accidentally inviting some kid instead. She said she mixed up Cameron Diaz's cell phone number and sent her invitation to appear on her new talk show to a young boy – all while she was getting dressed. She explained, "To save time I sent her a video while I'm getting dressed - you don't see anything, I'm not that dumb - but I'm getting out of the shower... and I don't hear back from her for, like, two days... so I text her and I'm like, 'I don't care about the question (will you appear on my show), are you OK?' I don't hear again for two days and I'm freaking out, so I call her and I'm like, 'What is going on? I'm worried. Is everything OK?' and she's like, 'I don't know what you're talking about...!' It turns out a young boy got the video." Cam added, "It's, like, seven minutes long. It's, like, epic. I mean, this is some material. This kid's going to have this material for, like, honestly, this is going to last him three or four years (sic)."

Here’s the next big thing for celebrity couples: a “mid-nup.” We’ve been telling you that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are working on their marriage, and apparently they’re putting some of the changes on paper. According to Heat World, the couple has reset the terms of their six-year marriage by writing up a “detailed, iron-clad, mid-term agreement.” Why? To “make life way less complicated” in case they can’t work things out. That’s right, not a prenup, a “mid-nup” to make sure their covered “if and when” they do decide to part ways.

It looks like things are getting serious for Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly. She introduced him to her children that she shares with Brian Austin Green. But that doesn’t mean they’re jumping ahead to the next step. A source said, “MGK and Megan aren’t seriously taking about getting engaged, married or having kids right now and they’re not there yet. It’s too soon for everyone, both of their kids and Brian included.” Considering she and Brian are still married, yeah, it would be too soon. In the meantime, their film, “Midnight in the Switchgrass,” has been put on hold because two people on set tested positive for coronavirus. According to TMZ, they were asymptomatic and immediately quarantined, but production stopped anyway and the director is going to start filming in Santa Barbara in the next few weeks with more stringent precautions in place. And lastly, it seems Megan is getting support for her new relationship from Brian’s ex, Vanessa Marcil.

Britney Spears is angry with her father for trying to rehire Andrew Wallet, who served as co-conservator of Britney's estate from 2008 to 2019, according to TMZ. Brit feels the half a million Andrew was paid to oversee her convservatorship was way too much. So, in protest, she said she’s done performing for now and wants to budget her money.

As we told you yesterday, the Internet has been in a frenzy all weekend after Chris Evans accidentally uploaded a snap of his nether regions online. While he deleted it quickly...it wasn’t quick enough with screenshots already hitting Twitter. The actor, who has trended online for multiple days, has finally spoken out. Taking to Twitter last night, he offered a facepalm and shrug emoji and added, “Now that I have your attention.... VOTE Nov 3rd!!!”

The biggest news out of last night’s “Dancing with the Stars” premiere was judge Bruno Tonioli’s debut of his natural silver hair – hot! But, in more DWTS news…
The family of Don Lewis, “Tiger King” star Carole Baskin's millionaire husband who went missing in 1997, crashed her first night on “Dancing with the Stars.” According to today.com, Don’s family and attorney, John Phillips, bought a commercial during Carole's "Dancing with the Stars" debut last night to ask the public to send in tips regarding his mysterious disappearance that was subject matter on “Tiger King” and offering $100,000 in exchange for tips that help solve the case. Carole has always maintained her innocence in Don's disappearance. In the meantime, Carole’s performance to “Eye of the Tiger” (shocker, I know) has led many to conclude we shouldn’t expect to see more of her on the show. She and Pasha had the lowest score. How did it look? As one person tweeted, “Carole Baskin is quite literally 2020 as a person.” Honestly…

And, I’m 50/50 on this story. OK! Reports that Jennifer Lopez is furious at Derek Hough for returning to “Dancing with the Stars” for this upcoming season after being a judge on her show, “World of Dance.” Even though NBC released a statement about Derek’s new role on DWTS and how it will not affect his role on a potential fifth season of “World of Dance,” Jen ain’t havin’ it. A source said, “Jennifer has a long memory and once you go behind her back, she will never trust you again.”

Mariah Carey's ex-assistant is in trouble with the judge for has destroying evidence in her ongoing blackmail case with Mariah, according to AceShowbiz. Mariah is suing Lianna Shakhnazarian claiming she attempted to use "intimate videos" of her to bribe her for $8 million and violating their non-disclosure agreement. Lianna is countersuing Mariah for wrongful termination and harassment and has denied estortion, but earlier this year, she was also accused of getting rid of evidence, which would have helped prove Mariah’s case. The judge is now punishing her for destroying two videos and WhatsApp messages and for her claims of having spilled water on the cell phone in question. The judge wrote, "Trading in her cellphone without taking any measures to save the videos, messages, and other data after this lawsuit was filed, when Ms. Shakhnazarian had an undeniable duty to preserve evidence, was grossly negligent, if not intentional. (Shakhnazarian's) actions constituted spoliation of critical evidence and severely prejudiced Ms. Carey's ability to prosecute her case."

One month after Rachael Ray’s New York home caught fire on August 9th, she took to Instagram to share the photos and a video with her fans. She said, “We watched our house burn in an hour,” and took fans on a tour through her ravaged home showing them what once was her bedroom, library, bathroom, dressing area, etc. She added that she lost “15 years of memories; 40 years of notebooks, drawing, thoughts, my life’s work.” The house was in ruins but they all escaped unharmed.

Chris Hemsworth has a new little side gig - weather reporter for Australia’s “The Today Show.” As meteorologist Lauren Phillips gave the weather report from an outdoor location, she said, “I’m in the horse capital of Australia, but I was yet to find a horse, so I thought I should open it up to one of the horse studs,” right as Chris walked on-screen. She was pretty chill about it, but back at the station, hosts Rebecca Maddern and Richard Wilkins were shocked and speechless. You can see the video at uproxx.com. Chris gave the forecast for nearly every location in Australia, but I’m pretty sure no one was listening as the only forecast that mattered was sunny with 100% chance of Thor.
