LINKS Keanu Reeves new girlfriend, John Stamos screws up, Abbi Murphy married…

CELEBITCHYEveryone is swooning over Keanu Reeves new girlfriend, a 46-year-old artist (and business partner of Keanu’s) named Alexandra Grant. I only mention her age because Keanu is getting showered with praise for dating someone roughly his age (she’s still nine years younger than him, but they’re both “old” by entertainment industry standards). It turns out the two of them have actually been together for months; the photo above was taken in May

THE BLASTJohn Stamos flubbed the end of his song during The Little Mermaid Live last night and now the big question is whether he did so accidentally or on purpose. Though he’s not the first person to make a Freudian slip involving Prince Eric and Prince Albert (Grimsby was definitely the first)

REALITY TEABelow Deck star Abbi Murphy is married to her “f*ck buddy” Captain Patrik after he proposed to her in a text. The engagement only aired on the show last night; afterward, Abbi confirmed that the two of them really get married on the DL — congrats!

LAINEY GOSSIP“So, once again, Chris Evans is promoting a movie where he probably can’t say much. He was just in a movie where he couldn’t say much – that would be Avengers: Endgame. Now that he’s on press tour for Knives Out then, he’s saying all the things he couldn’t say about Endgame.”

LINKS Demi Lovato interview, Trump booed again, Meghan Edmonds talks divorce…

THE BLASTThe first Demi Lovato interview since her near-fatal overdose saw the 27-year-old feeling optimistic and calm about what the future holds. Lovato, who took a year off following the overdose, told an audience at the Teen Vogue Summit that she sees herself as “a fighter” and added she doesn’t regret anything in her life because “I love the person that I am today”

CELEBITCHYDonald Trump got booed at a major sporting event again: last week it was Game 5 of the World Series; this week it was a UFC fight at Madison Square Garden. I know it was New York City and all, but I feel like a UFC fight is maybe closer to Trump’s base?

REALITY TEARHOC star Meghan Edmonds says her marriage to Jim started to fall apart following his texting scandal, after which some of his family and friends “blamed her for Jim’s indiscretions.” Meghan also spilled some of Jim’s tea, adding that he was “drinking and partying” with some of the couple’s babysitters (including the “22-year-old Mormon nanny” with whom he’s rumored to have had an affair)

LINKS Meghan Markle moving, YouTube music explained, Epstein mystery deepens…

CELEBITCHYRumors of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moving abroad to escape the British tabloids & endless gossip have intensified to the point where even pro-Meghan outlets are talking about it like it’s a done deal. Apparently they’re considering moving to the US or Canada — which would be interesting from a celebrity / gossip standpoint, but probably wouldn’t solve any of their celebrity / gossip problems?

JEZEBELAlmost all of the music you hear in your preferred videos from your favorite YouTube content creators was written by composers and musicians who never see a penny for their work, proving once again that getting paid in exposure is the same thing as eating air for breakfast

The blaze was only 15 percent contained as of Wednesday.”

>THE BLAST – It’s a good thing Johnny Depp won an eight-figure settlement from his former lawyers after bringing fraud and other charges against them, since he’ll need the money to pay his current lawyers in his ongoing legal battle with ex-wife Amber Heard

THE BLEMISH“Elizabeth Hurley and bikinis, three words that were never sweeter together. At 54, her body is aging 3 times slower than normal. It’s like gravity can’t penetrate a force field around her boobs. They’re ever present in her Instagram feed and as amazing now as they were 25 years ago. She’s also parlayed them into the Austin Powers movies and a swimwear line, Elizabeth Hurley Beach. Life is good for the Brit.”

LINKS Felicity Huffman free, G-Rated Kanye, Meghan Edmonds scandal fallout…

CELEBITCHYFelicity Huffman was only supposed to be in prison for two weeks for her role in the college admissions scandal, but was actually released three days early due to a loophole in prison policy. As you might have expected, Felicity Huffman free now has every major network and news show clamoring to be her first interview. Personally, I don’t care who gets it as long as we see some shade thrown Lori Laughlin’s way

DLISTEDNot sure how he expects this will work: Kanye West says he’ll “never perform his old music in its original form again,” meaning he’s going to make all his old lyrics G-rated in accordance with his newfound faith. Kanye should talk with Tom Araya from Slayer about one’s Christian beliefs having no affect on one’s art

LINKS Robyn Dixon back taxes, Popeyes chicken sandwich returns, Harvey Weinstein confronted…

REALITY TEATurns out Porsha Williams isn’t the only Real Housewife with IRS issues. Robyn Dixon back taxes are now a thing, thanks to the agency claiming the Real Housewives of Potomac star didn’t pay any income tax at all from 2015 to 2017. Robyn’s total tax bill is just shy of $90,000, but at least she’s not Lori Laughlin

JEZEBELPopeye’s is bringing back its infamous and long-sold-out chicken sandwich just in time for everyone to have forgotten all about it and thus presumably (?) get excited about it all over again.

LAINEY GOSSIPThe other night, accused rapist and generally disgraced human Harvey Weinstein was spotted hanging out in the audience at an open mic night for artists.

Her name is Kelly Buchanan, and here’s the video of her impromptu set

LINKS Lori Laughlin prison sentence, Republican pizza party, RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race…

CELEBITCHYThanks to a slew of new charges including bribery, the Lori Laughlin prison sentence could now be up to 50 years — or 1,304 times longer than Felicity Huffman will have spent behind bars after taking the feds’ deal and pleading guilty. Laughlin could also have to pay well over a million dollars in fines; that Hallmark money is good, but it’s not going to last forever
