“Full House” actress Lori Loughlin will be serving her two-month prison sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution Victorville, according to OK! Her lawyer requested that facility so she could be closer to her home. That’s the same prison where “Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller stayed.

“Big Brother” fans are calling for houseguest Memphis Garrett to be removed from the competition after he dropped the n-word in reference to David Alexander, a Black competitor on the show. That’s what fans say they heard during the after-hours live feed Wednesday night, and judging by the video on TMZ, it seems they’re right in what they heard. Now, a change.org petition is circulating to get Memphis kicked off the show.
But in some better “Big Brother” news, Janelle Pierzina, who was the third houseguest voted out this season, has sold the name necklace she wore on the show, and it went for $18,300 on ebay, according to TMZ. Janelle, who made the top 3 on "Big Brother 7 All-Stars" in 2006, donated all the proceeds to “Give Kids the World Village” in Central Florida that offers weeklong vacations to children with critical illnesses and their families at no cost because of donations like Janelle's.

Florida Georgia Line star Tyler Hubbard had to take his two-year-old daughter, Olivia, to the ER after she fell and cut her chin on a coffee table, according to AceShowbiz. She’s doing well – Tyler said, "Liv went from feeling scared and upset to smiling & talking in seconds after talking with one of their child life specialists.” Tyler was in the ER last month for himself after a dirt bike accident.

Keanu Reeves is teasing what fans on what they can expect from “The Matrix 4.” The movie isn’t due to hit theaters until 2022, but Keanu is sharing some of the details as he continues filming in Berlin, Germany. Appearing on BBC’s “The One Show,” Keanu said the movie’s “wonderful director” Lana Wachowski has written a “beautiful script that is a love story.” He also said the fourth film isn’t a prequel to the original trilogy, there’s “no going in the past.” He explained, “It's another version, a call to wake up and it has some great action.” Love, action, and Keanu Reeves – what else could it need?

Britney Spears’ father Jamie insists it’s not his fault Brit’s lawyer didn’t get paid. There was another hearing over Brit’s conservatorship this week, and docs show Sam Ingham, Brit’s lawyer, hadn’t been getting paid, noting he was cut off “without any explanation.” A source said Jamie’s argument was, “Jamie could not pay Britney’s lawyer if there wasn’t a valid court order, and the existing order had expired. Jamie’s lawyers asked the judge to give an order to pay the lawyer, and the judge did just that. Sam was immediately paid $37,000 that he was owed from August 17 to September 5.” Her estate will now pay him $10,000 a week, according to the New York Post.

“Dynasty” and “Victorious” star Elizabeth Gillies just shared that she and composer Michael Corcoran got married last month, according to extratv.com. Liz gave up some fun details of the day; her look was very 1960s, her dad officiated, there were only ten people at the wedding including her grandmothers, and to avoid flying during the pandemic, Liz and Michael drove from Atlanta to their wedding venue in New Jersey in an RV! Their wedding comes four months after they were forced to postpone their wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She revealed, “Once we saw how dire the situation was, we knew we had to postpone. It was a no-brainer for us. Aside from the obvious travel and crowd restrictions, it didn't feel right to be celebrating in such a big way when there was so much going on in the world." Michael added, “It really focused everything down to what matters in life. … A big, extravagant experience in the middle of a pandemic didn't make any sense."

Amy Locane, who played Sandy in the original "Melrose Place," has been resentenced for killing someone in a drunk driving accident in 2010. TMZ reports that she was originally sentenced to 3 years, had served all 3 in state prison, and was then released. Now, she’s getting an additional 8 years in prison for DUI and 2nd-degree vehicular homicide, plus 18 months for 4th-degree assault by auto, which she will serve concurrently. She won’t even be eligible for parole until 6 years and 9+ months of time served, but she is getting credit for time already served. The judge also ordered her to serve 3 years of parole once she's released. So, why the additional time? Prosecutors appealed the original sentence, claiming the judge was too lenient by giving her a sentence below the sentencing guideline range of 5-10 years. Amy’s lawyer says after 4 appeals on the issue, prosecutors convinced the appeals court they were right, so the trial judge handed down this new sentence.

NeNe Leakes has announced she is leaving “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” This wasn’t completely unexpected. According to extratv.com, she announced to fans, “I have made the very hard and difficult decision to not be a part of ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Season 13,” adding, “I’m just so happy that I can say that I was a part of a genre that opened up doors for Black ensemble reality shows to step up and be a part of what we all now love so much, reality TV. I want to thank everybody who has looked up to me over the years, thank you for your love and support. I want to thank Bravo, thank you for all the memories, the laughs the tears… Thank you to the cast for all the memories… Thank you to all the fans and the followers… it has been amazing.” She ended saying, “I will see you again!” I don’t know if that’s a threat or a promise, but either way, I’m excited!

Jason Momoa may rule the seas as “Aquaman,” but when it comes to roadways, well, not so much control over that… Jason’s car broke down on a 110-degree day in the desert. He couldn’t fix the problem, so he just sat outside his car, shirtless, with his dog and a cooler waiting for someone to come save him. He posted a video about his situation, which you can see at tmz.com, and even sang along with the music he was playing to keep himself occupied. What’s funny is during the short video, you see numerous trucks and cars fly by him, yet no one stops to ask him if he needs any help. If they only knew….

Baby news….
It’s no secret that Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are expecting their third child, but now we know one secret - they’re having a boy. Chrissy, who is currently on bedrest, accidentally revealed their child’s gender while talking about her pregnancy on her IG Story. She said, “The baby is really, really healthy and he’s big,” but then she stopped, eyes wide open, adding “Oops,” before covering her mouth. Instead of deleting the video, she posted it with the caption, “Hahahaha might as well tell you.” She also posted that clip on her regular Instagram. In the meantime, her husband, John Legend, admitted in an interview that the third pregnancy was "a surprise." When asked in an interview if they were looking forward to the birth, he responded, "We're so grateful and excited. It was a surprise, but we're excited."
“High School Musical” star Ashley Tisdale is going to be a mom! She announced that she is expecting her first child with husband Christopher French. Well, she didn’t really “announce” anything - she posted a pic of her baby bump on Instagram.
And, it looks like we’re still on baby watch with Gigi Hadid. Even though her father shared a sweet now-deleted post about his new grandchild, when a commenter asked if she’d given birth, Mohamed Hadid said, “No, not yet.” The child will be her first with Zayn Malik.

“Jon and Kate plus 8” star Jon Gosselin has threatened to sue his ex, Kate Gosselin, amid allegations that he physically abused their 16-year-old son, Collin. He told ET, “Kate, the message to you is to stop. Unless you don’t want to have any ounce of any relationship with your children in the future. You’re ruining that.” He added that the kids have had to “live their life by you [Kate] making false accusations about things that never occurred.” After a story of abuse involving Collin surfaced, Kate called Jon a “violent and abusive person.” Jon’s lawyer said they will take legal action “if her false accusations of abuse continue.” Jon and Kate’s daughter, Hannah, one of the 16-year-old sextuplets along with Collin, Aaden, Alexis, Leah, and Joe, has supported her dad, saying he is not an abusive person. She told the Daily Mail, “My dad loves us. He’s never been abusive,” adding that he is “very loving and supportive.”

Now that we’re wearing facemasks, the “smize” – Tyra Banks’ method for smiling with your eyes – is even more important. Tyra said she created smizing for “having an intense look and a gaze in a photo.” She said she “never thought in a million years that it would mean so much more and come to mean so much and be so important today with us wearing masks.” She shared her technique with Drew Barrymore on “The Drew Barrymore Show.” She told Drew, “You have to think of something that delights you.” Drew said it was her daughters, Olivia and Frankie. She then walked Drew through the process of thinking of her daughters to create a smize. So remember, be kind, and put a smize on someone’s face today.
