Ashley’s Morning Scoop 6.21.16

Kelly Clarkson has been teasing fans from her house, with mini concerts of fan requested songs each day this week.  Along with each mini concert, Kelly has teased an upcoming surprise announcement, expected this Friday.  Kelly welcomed a baby boy in April and cancelled the remainder of her tour last September because of vocal strain, so fans haven’t been able to hear her voice much lately.

It turns out, Star Trek actor, Anton Yelchin never completed the recall on his Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo that made the vehicle susceptible to PARK problems with the shifter.  According to the recall, which was issued last month “Drivers may inadvertently fail to achieve the PARK position before exiting.”  Yelchin exited his Jeep while on his sloped driveway and was hit by the car and pinned to his gate.

Selma Blair was removed from a plane yesterday after mixing prescription pills with alcohol and having an outburst mid-flight.  Paramedics were waiting for the flight when it landed in LA from Cancun and the actress was rushed to the hospital.

UNICEF and Maroon 5 are teaming up to launch #Maroon5Day, an annual campaign to “raise awareness about UNICEF’s work for children around the world.” Using the hashtags #Maroon5 and #childrenfirst, fans can make donations to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF and share their stories about giving back through Saturday. Anyone who contributes will also be automatically entered to win a pair of VIP tickets to see Maroon 5 in concert.

Demi Lovato must be over her social media rants; she announced yesterday she’s leaving Twitter and Instagram!!  What?!?!? Why would she want to live in the stone-age?  She is keeping her SnapChat (thank goodness), because she basically wants people to see what she has to say, but doesn’t want to have to hear other people bash her.

The hunt for Kelly’s new cohost continues, and apparently NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon is one of the front-runners for the gig.  Gordon done guest cohosting duties nine times alongside Ripa and he retired from racing last year.

Chad is joining the cast of Bachelor in Paradise this summer alongside last night’s Bachelorette castoffs, Evan, Grant and Vinny.  Another surprise guest is headed to paradise as well; Nick V!! He was the runner up for Andi & Caitlyn….

Congrats to Real Housewives of Orange County star, Meghan King Edmonds and her husband Jim!  They are expecting a baby girl later this year. The reality star shared the couple’s happy news on Instagram yesterday and has documented her struggle with infertility and IVF on the current season of RHOBH.
