LOS ANGELES - JUL 29: Mariah Carey at the Hallmark 2015 TCA Summer Press Tour Party at the Private Residence on July 29, 2015 in Beverly Hills, CA

Ashley’s Morning Scoop 5.18.16

A paramedic who rushed the late James Gandolfini to the hospital following a massive heart attack in 2013 faced a preliminary hearing in Italy yesterday after being accused of stealing the Sopranos star’s $3000 Rolex watch while tending to him.  The judge postponed the start of the trial until November.

Rebel Wilson is suing Bauer Media—which includes Woman’s Day, Women’s Weekly and OK Magazine— after articles printed in the publications claimed she lied about her upbringing and age.  According to the lawsuit, the articles “gravely injured in her feelings, credit and reputation” and she is seeking damages from the loss of earnings due to roles not being offered to her due to them.  One article went as far as calling her a ”serial liar” who made up stories to make it in Hollywood.

Kim Kardashian has been accused of being a lot of things, but the Iranian government’s claims that she is secret agent might be the most absurd.  Iranian officials claim the reality star is attempting to purposefully corrupt Iranian women by posting provocative selfies and snapshots.  All this time, I assumed she was doing all that to show everyone how awesome she thinks she is.

Mariah Carey joined Andy Cohen last night on Watch What Happens Live and addressed a bunch of rumors; first off, she is not going to have a circus-themed wedding, her and fiancé James Packer will have a prenup.  Her ring is 35 carats and anyone who thinks it’s too big is just a “hater.”  She doesn’t know JLo, she has nothing nice to say about Nicki Minaj.  She thinks Britney Spears is a sweet girl and tried to see her show in Vegas and would love to collaborate with Beyonce (who woudn’t)!

The Voice final 4 is all set after last night’s show, which saw performances by Alicia Keys and OneRepublic.  Adam Wakefield was the first one into the Final 4 from Team Blake, followed by Alisan Porter, aka Curly Sue from Team Christina.  Team Pharrell sent Hannah Huston to the Finals and Laith Al-Saadi got the instant save, saving Team Adam from a no-show in the finals.
