Brad Pitt has issued a statement of sorts amid his divorce from Angelina Jolie.  Pitt serves as the narrator of the Documentary Voyage of Time and had this to say about missing the upcoming premiere; “I’m very grateful to be part of such a fascinating and educational project, but I’m currently focused on my family situation and don’t want to distract attention away from this extraordinary film, which I encourage everyone to see.”

We have been eagerly awaiting some sort of comment from Brad Pitt’s ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston and while that’s not likely anytime soon, we got the next best thing, statements from her current husband, Justin Theroux and best friend, Courtney Cox.

Theroux had this to say; “As a child of divorce, all I can say is that’s terrible news for those children and that’s all you can really say. There’s an endless appetite for trash, apparently – though everyone would say that they don’t have that appetite,” he explained. “But I think a lot of people do because people buy it.”

Cox said “It’s not about [Jennifer].  I feel like we’re exacerbating it by even talking about it.”

Dancing with the Stars said goodbye to another contestant last night when former Governor, Rick Perry was sent packing, which shouldn’t have been a huge surprise to anyone watching. As they say in Texas, Bless his heart, he sure did try. He went out on a high note though……

The two men who rushed the DWTS stage in protest of Ryan Lochte have been charged with interfering with a performance and leaving a spectator area and entering a stage. Both are misdemeanor charges… but, they seem made up, don’t they?

Walking Dead is a super successful show, so you knew it was only a matter of time before someone filed a lawsuit and, my friends, that time has come.  Co-creator, Frank Darabont ran the show for the first season and a half before getting fired.  Now he is suing AMC for $280 Million!  Sadly, we won’t know how this plays out until 2018, since the judge assigned is full through 2017.

Selena Gomez has made Instagram history, becoming the first person to hit 100 million followers.  That means she has about 9 million more than her bestie Taylor Swift and at least 15 million more than Beyonce and Kim Kardashian. You go girl.

Amy Schumer also made history, becoming the first female comedian to make it onto Forbes’ Highest Paid Comedian List.  She is fourth on the list behind Kevin Hart, Jerry Seinfeld and Terry Fator. Forbes estimates she made $17 million between June 2015 and June 2016.
