Danielle Fishel Reveals MASSIVE Pay Disparity Between Her & Boy Meets World Co-Stars!

Home » TV News » Danielle Fishel Reveals MASSIVE Pay Disparity Between Her & Boy Meets World Co-Stars!

Danielle Fishel may have played one of the most beloved characters on Boy Meets World, but she was NOT paid like it!

In a new episode of the Pod Meets World podcast, a Boy Meets World rewatch series hosted by her and co-stars Rider Strong and Will Friedle, the actress revealed she was paid way less than her other co-stars! And that’s including when she was bumped from a recurring role to a series regular during the show’s second season!

In the chat posted on Monday, the 41-year-old, who played Topanga Lawrence, dished:

“If you guys knew the pay disparity, even after I became a series regular, and it was always — the excuse that was used was ‘Well, we didn’t know you would be on the show. We weren’t anticipating you.’”

Which, fine, that might have worked when they first hired her, but the very fact that execs were bumping her to a series regular position proves they both knew they wanted her to stick around and that she brought a lot of value to the sitcom. Her paycheck should have represented that, too!

Special guest Lauren Lapkus was horrified at the revelation, remarking:

“It doesn’t make any sense.”

Danielle agreed, continuing:

“By season 2, [they] did know…. that excuse should go out the window. And then season 3 rolled around and it was still the same excuse.”

She may not have been an OG part of the show’s plan, but she quickly became a fixture in pop culture and had this role which was pivotal to main character Cory’s storyline as they played love interests. Sadly, things didn’t improve until she threatened to skip work! Yes, at around 13 years old, she took a drastic measure to be paid fairly. Love that!!

The Boiling Point alum detailed:

“I had to threaten to not show up to a table read.”

Apparently, her father and agent were trying to negotiate better pay on her behalf, but when the powers that be wouldn’t budge, they felt Danielle’s only option was to take a stand by threatening not to show up at a table read. She was initially hesitant to boycott the meeting for fear she’d lose her job — something she’d worried about since the very beginning!

The actress previously shared on an episode of the podcast that the ABC series’ creator, Michael Jacobs, threatened to fire her on DAY ONE when she didn’t perform to his liking. The show had already fired the first girl they hired to play her role, so she felt she was on thin ice. No wonder she was so worried about standing up for herself! And all of this was happening when she was just 12 and 13! So much pressure for a kid!!

With all that in mind, it makes sense why Danielle was so afraid to stand-off with the BMW team. She remembered telling her father and agent:

“You’re gonna lose this job for me.”

She also thought amid the emotional time:

“If they end up firing me because I don’t show up to a table read, I will never speak to my family ever again.”

Wow! The stress of doing what her family wanted while also trying to hold onto a job she loved really got her in her feels!! Despite her emotions, her father was sure it was the right decision, she said:

“My dad was not having it. They were like, ‘Listen, this is what you should be getting, this is where we’re at, and the only way to get it is if they know you’re serious about not coming back unless you get treated fairly.’”

Props to her team for sticking up for her and teaching the teen her value!

Danielle said she ended up following their advice, but did not share whether or not her pay improved. She did remain on the show as a main character until its end in 2000. We sure hope she had LOTS of zeros on her check when she returned for the Disney Channel spin-off Girl Meets World years later!!! What a frustrating situation. Reactions, Perezcious readers?! Are any of you surprised?

Ellen DeGeneres Reacts To Ex Anne Heche’s Hospitalization Following Horrific Car Wreck

Home » Ellen DeGeneres » Ellen DeGeneres Reacts To Ex Anne Heche’s Hospitalization Following Horrific Car Wreck

Ellen DeGeneres speaks out about ex-girlfriend Anne Heche‘s horrific car crash.

The former daytime talk show host, who dated the star for three years between 1997 and 2000, was seen out and about with a friend in Santa Barbara, California, on Monday. And when paparazzi stopped and asked her about the 53-year-old actress, Ellen said she did not know about her current condition since the former couple are no longer in contact with each other:

“We are not in touch with each other, so I would not know.”

Related: Rosie O’Donnell Regrets Mocking Anne Heche Years Before Car Crash

However, she still offered her well-wishes to Anne, saying:

“I don’t want anyone to be hurt.”

This marks the first time The Ellen DeGeneres Show star has commented on Anne’s situation after she drove her Mini Cooper into the two-story home in El Lay on London sparking a fire which required 60 firefighters to put it out. A rep for the Volcano star told Page Six earlier this week that Heche, who has been hospitalized with burns, is in critical condition, saying:

“Shortly after the accident, Anne Heche became unconscious, slipping into a coma. She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention.”

And sadly, it sounds like her condition has not improved since then. TMZ revealed on Thursday that she is still in dire shape at the moment! But as we previously reported, a source for Entertainment Tonight said her 20-year-old son Homer Laffoon is making sure Anne receives the “best care” for her injuries:

“He’s being as strong as he can be. Her family is ready to surround her, and be there if she wakes up. Everyone is waiting for that to happen.”

While the former soap opera star continues to fight for her life, she is also being investigated for felony DUI after Lynne claimed she was injured with multiple cuts, requiring medical attention. At first, there was speculation that Anne allegedly used alcohol at the time of the fiery crash as she was photographed with alcohol bottles inside her vehicle. However, TMZ reported Thursday that no alcohol was found in her system but instead was allegedly under the influence of cocaine and possibly fentanyl. A law enforcement source did caution that the fentanyl was potentially given to Anne at the hospital to help with her pain.

Such an awful situation…

Vanessa Bryant Breaks Down In Tears During Trial After Hearing What First Responders Said About Kobe & Gianna Pics

Home » Vanessa Bryant » Vanessa Bryant Breaks Down In Tears During Trial After Hearing What First Responders Said About Kobe & Gianna Pics

[Warning: Potentially Triggering Content]

The Kobe Bryant photo trial has begun, and it’s not for the faint of heart.

As you probably know, Vanessa Bryant is suing Los Angeles County after cops at the scene of the tragic 2020 helicopter crash, which resulted in Kobe and their daughter Gianna’s deaths, as well as seven others, took photos of their bodily remains — and shared them with the public. We’ve already reported that Vanessa herself outed the specific individuals who were responsible for taking the photos, and that she unfortunately saw one herself, which obviously resulted in extra mental torment for the grieving widow.

Now the lawsuit has finally been dragged into court.

According to TMZ, Vanessa’s lawyer opened the trial Wednesday by stating that the eight LA County Sheriff’s deputies who took the pictures of her husband and child did so “for a laugh like they were souvenirs,” adding by doing so, they “poured salt in an unhealable wound.” The attorney described the photos as displaying: 

“Broken bodies, close-ups of limbs and burnt flesh.”

Just imagine how traumatic that would be… Knowing that there are photos like that out there and just hoping and praying you never have to see them (again)… and that they never get released to a wider domain. Her lawyer explained how she lives in “fear, anxiety and terror” over the photos’ existence. Heartbreaking.

A deposition was then played in which a Sheriff’s detective explains that his wife did not want to see the photos, so he proceeded to tell her that they depict “piles of meat.”

So upsetting! We understand how people in jobs like these have to harden their hearts to this kind of horror, but to make light of it with civilians? We’re talking about dead children here.

TMZ noted that the basketball star’s wife was extremely emotional throughout the proceedings — and broke down sobbing during her attorney’s words.

The outlet also reported that LA Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka also fought back tears while taking the stand to address his relationship with the late Kobe. He told the court being friends with Kobe was like being friends with a superhero.

So sad! The athlete was undoubtedly a legend like no other and an inspiration to many across the globe.

The GM explained that he was in church when he received news of the crash and immediately rushed to meet Vanessa at the John Wayne Airport, where the helicopter originally departed. He revealed that authorities took the two of them to the site of the crash, where he then promised the grieving wife that the area would be kept private and secure. He added that he fears what the images could do to the Hall of Famer’s surviving daughters if they were to ever see them — before revealing that Vanessa visited the crash site again in June 2020 to touch the soil where she lost her angels.

LA County’s defense has been that Vanessa is upset by the crash itself, by the loss of her husband and daughter — not by the photos. 

The widow, however, has stated explicitly that she is “tormented with thoughts of” these photos being out there and feels “extreme sadness and anger” at the idea her family’s bodies were laughed at after the fact. She wrote in a court filing:

“I imagine Kobe watching over what occurred at that crash scene, and I am overcome by anger and emotion. I feel sick at the thought that deputies and firefighters have gawked at photos of my husband’s and child’s bodies without any reason.”

Sounds like she knows the difference.

California Governor Gavin Newsom signed the Kobe Bryant Act into law two years ago, making it a crime punishable by $1,000 fine for first responders to take and share photos of crime scenes. For this case, Vanessa will have to settle for civil justice. Let’s hope she gets it.

Britney Spears’ Lawyer BITES Back — Claims ‘Cruel’ Kevin Federline Could Face ‘Legal Issues’ After Sharing Videos!

Home » Britney Spears » Britney Spears’ Lawyer BITES Back — Claims ‘Cruel’ Kevin Federline Could Face ‘Legal Issues’ After Sharing Videos!

Britney Spears’ lawyer, Matthew Rosengart, is coming to her defense after Kevin Federline tried to make her look like a bad parent!

ICYMI, late Wednesday night, Kevin posted a series of videos of the pop star arguing with her teenage sons, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, when they were 11 and 12. In the videos, which were seemingly taken without her knowledge, she can be heard raising her voice as she asked to be respected and punished her children for not listening to her. Pretty normal parenting stuff.

But Kevin seemed to think otherwise and called his ex-wife out for supposedly treating their sons poorly, claims that come after he revealed they no longer want to see their mother and haven’t visited her in months. More is to be dished in an upcoming ITV interview, too, during which he said things that were “too hurtful” to the boys to make it into the final edit. Yeesh.

While Britney and her husband Sam Asghari have already had their say on some of K-Feds upsetting claims, her lawyer is also clapping back! In a new interview with Page Six on Thursday, Matthew slammed the accusations being made against his client, who he gushed about, saying:

“Britney Spears is a brilliantly-talented, extremely-hardworking icon, who is rightfully beloved and respected by millions around the world.”

He didn’t have such kind words for Kevin, adding:

“The same, unfortunately, cannot be said about Mr. Federline, who for reasons that are inexplicable, decided to give a gratuitous interview that has hurt the mother of his children.”

(c) Instagram/Judy Eddy/ WENN

He went on to stress that the 40-year-old singer has “faithfully supported” her kids and “loves them dearly.” What she doesn’t love is their personal family matter now suddenly becoming a public matter, he continued:

“Whether he realizes it or not, Mr. Federline has not only violated the privacy and dignity of the mother of his children, he has undermined his own children, whose privacy he should protect.”

Rosengart added:

“​​Putting aside his ITV interview, Mr. Federline’s abhorrent, ill-advised decision to post an old video of his 11 and 12 year old children was cruel, bottom of the barrel stuff.”

You can say that again!!

Interestingly, Rosengart claims the former backup dancer could face legal consequences for the leaked videos! The 44-year-old may have broken the law by uploading the videos since it does not appear in the clips that Britney was aware she was being filmed — and California is a two-party consent state. That means it’s illegal to record a private conversation without all parties providing consent. Just as Matthew has been fighting for justice in the Crossroad alum’s conservatorship battle, he plans to do the same with this issue, noting:

“In addition to demeaning himself and violating societal norms, he has now also created various legal issues for himself including, but not limited to, implicating cyber-harassment and cyber-bullying statutes, among other things.”

Whoa! Bet Kevin didn’t think that through!

The attorney went on to express what an “honor” it has been for him to work with Britney to “suspend her father [Jamie Spears] as conservator, to help her gain her freedom and dignity, and to help protect her from the type of bullying she endured in the past.” And he doesn’t plan to stop anytime soon — no matter who the legal battle is against! He insisted:

“We will not tolerate bullying in any area.”

Britney’s legal team is now working with Instagram to “ensure” her ex-husband “adheres to its rules and [they] are exploring all appropriate relief against him.” He concluded:

“In the meantime, as Britney herself poignantly said, whatever is occurring between her and her boys should remain private. We urge Mr. Federline to act with a measure of grace and decency and to cease from publicly discussing private matters, which benefits no one.”

Kevin’s attorney has not responded to Page Six for comment. It does appear the former singer may have some regret about making the videos public since they were deleted early Thursday, but still, they will forever live on the internet. The damage has been done.

Related: Britney Claims Mom ‘Abused’ Her In Scathing New Post!

As we reported, in the two videos that were posted, Britney could be heard disciplining her children. This was also while she was still under her 13-year conservatorship and only had restricted time with them. In one video seemingly taken in one of the boys’ bedrooms, she can be heard saying:

“This is my house. If I want to come in here and give you lotion for your face because it’s coarse … y’all better start respecting me, are we clear?”

“You all need to start treating me like a woman with worth. I am a woman, okay, be nice to me, do you understand?”

In the second clip, which was broken into two parts, Britney was seen in the passenger side of a car having an argument with her son who went into a store without shoes on. She raised her voice, but merely as any frustrated mother would during a typical parental argument, even saying at one point:

“I do care more than you know.”

You can see the shocking footage HERE.

Fans have largely taken her side on the matter, blasting Kevin for trying to paint Britney as a bad mom just for attempting to parent her children. Some viewers wrote on social media:

“The fact that Britney Spears has to remind her own kids that she is a WOMAN and she deserves RESPECT tells us all we need to know about Kevin Federline’s parental influence. That man is pure evil and he’s raised those kids in his image. Truly tragic. #JusticeForBritney”

“Dear Kevin Federline. You released a ‘scathing’ video of a mom being a mom. Sometimes moms — gasp — have reactions. They might discipline by taking things away or ask for respect. This is shocking but sometimes moms will argue with their kids. #BritneySpears.”

Things remain tense for Britney, unfortunately. And who knows what will be spilled in the upcoming ITV interview. It’s a shame that her kids and their relationship with their mom have now been dragged into the spotlight (whether or not they agreed to upload the upsetting content). Thoughts, Perezcious readers? Do you think Britney should consider legal action against Kevin if the law allows it?

‘She Hates Us’! Joe & Melissa Gorga Finally Speak Out After Skipping Teresa Giudice’s Wedding!

Home » Teresa Giudice » ‘She Hates Us’! Joe & Melissa Gorga Finally Speak Out After Skipping Teresa Giudice’s Wedding!

Joe and Melissa Gorga are sharing their side of the story!

In case you missed it, The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars skipped out on Teresa Giudice‘s wedding to Luis Ruelas over the weekend. Many fans wondered at the time what caused the shocking decision, assuming something big must have happened between the family members. We mean, bigger even than T cutting Melissa from being a bridesmaid.

Well, according to a Page Six source, it turned out an explosive argument erupted at the taping of the RHONJ finale after Teresa allegedly spread a rumor that would “cause drama” within Melissa and Joe’s marriage! THIS massive argument is apparently what ended up causing Joe and Melissa to ditch the big day. What was the rumor? Get ready…

Melissa allegedly was unfaithful to Joe and kissed a guy named Nick Barrotta while out in New York City a few years ago! Whoa!

Related: Joe Giudice Has Thoughts About Ex-Wife Teresa Remarrying!

The whole situation allegedly started when RHONJ’s Margaret Josephs and her longtime frenemy Laura Marasca Jensen talked about the rumor “a while ago” before they had a falling out. Laura told Page Six:

“I was told about this [by Margaret], who was not even there, herself. She told me that someone told her who was there that night. … I do not think that Margaret was telling me that to ruin Melissa’s marriage. She was gossiping — it’s what she does.”

When Laura went out with Teresa and Jennifer Aydin for four hours in February, she decided to bring up the infidelity allegations about Melissa. While filming the season 12 reunion for RHONJ, neither ladies brought up the bombshell – but it eventually came out during the season 13 taping. However, it was NOT Teresa who brought it up! An insider told the outlet that Jennifer was the one who ended up spilling the beans on-camera.

So why were Joe and Melissa so upset at Teresa? They were enraged at her for meeting up with Laura AND believed she had a hand in helping the rumor come to light on the Bravo series.

Whoa…

Now the two reality stars are breaking their silence on the situation in the latest episode of their On Display podcast. First off, Melissa said there was a “laundry list of reasons” why they did not show up for Teresa’s wedding, explaining:

“Obviously, we did not attend your sister’s wedding. We have a laundry list of reasons in our heads. Obviously, there was something that went down at the finale of filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

Without addressing whether or not it was about those cheating rumors, she did note that after what had happened on the show, it would have been “strange” for them to attend the wedding:

“There was plenty of reason for Joe and I to say it would be very strange — including everyone in that room, by the way — to look at Joe and I to say, like, ‘Yes, it would be very strange for you guys to just be sitting in the pews tomorrow, wishing them well on their wedding day.’ It would be strange.”

Another factor? Based on what Joe and Melissa shared on the podcast, they felt Teresa was still holding a grudge over the duo joining RHONJ more than a decade ago:

“What you can be upset with is that we actually accepted… the invitation, that we accepted the proposal. Yes, we did. Did we do that? 100 percent. Did she, deep down, not want us to do that? I’m sure. I’m sure that’s what’s irked her, but guess what? I can take an opportunity just like anyone else.”

While the family may have some problems with each other, Joe expressed how hard it was to not be at his sister’s wedding — especially since they’ve lost their parents:

“We lost our parents and, to me, it was devastating. It really was. It was one of the hardest days of my life. It was bad.”

But the bad blood between the siblings was too great! When Teresa confirmed Melissa would not be one of her bridesmaids during the reunion, Joe said he realized that his sister “really didn’t want” his family there. Noting that he was also never asked by Teresa to walk her down the aisle, he expressed:

“Let’s go back to the reunion. She did this. This was all on her. This is what she really wanted. She didn’t want you in the wedding. She didn’t want any of my children in the wedding. She barely wanted me. She hates us. She really didn’t want us there.”

Although they hate how everything went down, Melissa and Joe ultimately felt like it was time to cut ties with Teresa:

“Sometimes when things are too toxic and you try over and over and over again, and it just keeps coming back around to the same thing, that it’s just sometimes — even if it’s family — you have to let it go.”

A post shared by Melissa Gorga (@melissagorga)

Joe went on to add:

“Everybody has seen us for 13 years try to make this family work. We’ve tried, but then you get to a point when you get tired. When is it too much? I have to think about my life now. I don’t want to be depressed. I want to go to someone’s home or go into the same room and feel loved and feel like I’m wanted. I don’t want to feel this hate and, you know, in going around and saying, ‘Does she really want me there?’ or ‘Do the kids really want me there?’ or ‘Do they really hate us and we’re faking this relationship?’ so, you know, I had to make a decision: what’s important to me? Which is my wife, my children. I have to make them happy. I have to put them in a healthy environment, so is it time to let go?… I decided yes, because she forced all this. She did all this.”

As for those cheating rumors? It sounds like Melissa and Joe are not concerned about that bit of gossip whatsoever. A source told Page Six on Wednesday “they’re laughing about it,” adding that those accusations of Melissa cheating on Joe with Nick are “ridiculous.” In fact, the insider shared that the trio has “all been friends for years.”

So much drama! Reactions to Melissa and Joe’s podcast, Perezcious readers? Thoughts on those cheating rumors? Sound OFF in the comments (below)!

NFL Star Frank Gore Charged After Allegedly Dragging A Naked Woman By Her HAIR Through A Hotel Hallway!

Home » Viral: News » NFL Star Frank Gore Charged After Allegedly Dragging A Naked Woman By Her HAIR Through A Hotel Hallway!

NFL superstar Frank Gore is facing simple assault charges — simple, but far from easy…

The athlete was involved in a July 31 New Jersey incident where he allegedly “forcibly” grabbed a woman by her hair before “violently dragging her nude person along the floor of the 59th hallway,” according to court documents obtained by TMZ Sports. Yeesh.

The Atlantic City Police Department informed the outlet that they were called to the Tropicana Atlantic City at 8:11 a.m. regarding a domestic violence report. They added that a 28-year-old woman, who they did not identify, was seen with hotel security, but “did not exhibit signs of injury and complaints were not filed at the time.” No arrests were made wither.

We wonder what her reasoning was behind not reporting the incident? We hope it wasn’t something to do with her trying to protect Frank, which is unfortunately often the case with abuse victims.

However, an Atlantic City PD report released Wednesday offered new details on the ongoing case, explaining: 

“An ensuing investigation resulted in Franklin Gore being charged with simple assault related to the domestic violence incident.”

Sheesh… Simple assault often carries misdemeanor penalties and covers both threats of physical harm and/or the actual act of a physical assault resulting in minimal injuries. It sounds like, as brutal as the act was, the poor girl came out pretty unscathed.

The release continued:

“Gore was issued a summons pending a future court date. The public is reminded that charges are mere allegations and the accused is considered innocent until proven guilty.”

TMZ is reporting that the running back will appear for the court hearing in October. He has yet to publicly acknowledge the situation himself. ACPD concluded their release by asking anyone with insight into the situation to come forward: 

“Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact the Atlantic City Police Department Criminal Investigations Section at 609-347-5766.  Information can be text to tip411 (847411).  Begin the text with ACPD.  All texts are anonymous.”

The 39-year-old is widely known as one of the NFL’s best running backs of all time, coming in number three as an all-time rusher with 16,000 yards, 99 total touchdowns and finishing his career rushing 653 yards in 15 games with the New York Jets in 2020. He then signed a one-day contract in June of this year with the San Francisco 49ers to retire there, and is now pursing a career in boxing.

What do you think of the situation, Perezcious readers? Should Frank be charged? All we can say is we hope that poor woman stays far away from him!

Armie Hammer Ex (And Alleged Victim) Courtney Vucekovich Ready To Move ‘Onwards & Upwards’ Following House Of Hammer Trailer

Home » Armie Hammer » Armie Hammer Ex (And Alleged Victim) Courtney Vucekovich Ready To Move ‘Onwards & Upwards’ Following House Of Hammer Trailer

[Warning: Potentially Triggering Content]

One of Armie Hammer’s exes is ready to move on and focus more on her future following a painful period in her life.

Shortly after the release of the first trailer for House of Hammer, Courtney Vucekovich took to Instagram Stories to share a clip of herself taking a stroll with her dog on Wednesday. After being featured heavily in the three-minute video to detail some of her nightmare experiences with the 35-year-old during their relationship, she’s clearly ready to move on.

She wrote on top of the video:

“onwards and upwards is the only option.”

(c) Courtney Vucekovich/Instagram

So true.

Even before the first look at the anticipated three-part docuseries dropped this week, the Flashd app founder had already spoken out about her horrendous and traumatic relationship with Armie. In January 2021, she told Page Six when the cannibal scandal and sexual abuse allegations broke that the Call Me By Your Name star is like a “chameleon” who becomes “exactly who you need him to be.” She described:

“He quickly grooms you in the relationship. He kind of captivates you and while being charming, he’s grooming you for these things that are darker and heavier and consuming. When I say consuming, I mean mentally, physically, emotionally, financially, just everything. He sucks out all the goodness you have left. That’s what he did to me. I gave and gave and gave until it hurt.”

He vehemently denied the allegations at the time, with his attorney insisting everything was “completely consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and mutually participatory.” Behind closed doors, we heard he thought he was being “kink-shamed.”

But in the trailer, Courtney and another alleged victim, Julia Morrison, shared some of the graphic messages they allegedly received from Armie, including audio! One text read:

“I have a fantasy about having someone prove their love and devotion and tying them up in a public place at night and making their body free use and seeing if they will f**k strangers for me.’”

One of the most shocking moments also came from a voice memo sent by Armie, in which he talked about a “bet” that involved “showing up at your place and completely tying you up and incapacitating you and being able to do whatever I wanted to every single hole in your body until I was done with you.” WTF?! According to Courtney, he even texted her during their time together:

“I’m 100 percent a cannibal.”

She then went on to describe a traumatizing sexual encounter she had with Armie, recalling:

“The ropes were around your neck, your wrist, your ankles, and you’re completely immobilized. I’m just closing my eyes until it ended.”

Scary stuff. But of course it gets so much worse. And we expect to hear all about that in the doc.

We’re glad Courtney is out of this terrible situation and focused on healing now. Our hearts continue to go out to her and everyone who has experienced abuse at the hands of Armie.

Anne Heche Allegedly Under The Influence Of Cocaine At Time Of Car Wreck

Home » Anne Heche » Anne Heche Allegedly Under The Influence Of Cocaine At Time Of Car Wreck

Wow. This is a shocking new development.

As you’ve likely been following, Anne Heche is being investigated for felony DUI following multiple car crashes in the Los Angeles area last week, one of which ignited a home on fire. The tenant of the Mar Vista building ended up being injured in the form of multiple cuts, as the actress came out with severe burns. She’s been in a coma in the hospital since, with speculation surrounding alleged alcohol use at the time of the fiery wreck. Well, it turns out the investigation is already painting a clearer picture.

On Thursday, an update from TMZ describes no alcohol being found in her system, but instead alleged drug use, having cocaine and possibly fentanyl found in her blood. A law enforcement source says the examination is continuing as the latter, a synthetic opioid, can also be used as a pain medicine in the hospital. Although, we have to add, there have been cases of cocaine being laced with the dangerous drug — the same one behind Prince‘s untimely death.

Sadly, the 53-year-old star’s condition has yet to improve. In fact, the outlet notes Anne is in a dire state after having crashed at high speeds into another car, a garage, and most terrifyingly, a house, which later went up in flames. So terrible!

We previously reported this week how her 20-year-old son Homer Laffoon, whom she shares with ex-husband Coleman Laffoon, has been the one taking the lead as her medical advocate. An ET source shared how he’s ensuring his mom gets the “best care” possible to heal from her life-threatening injuries:

“He’s being as strong as he can be. Her family is ready to surround her, and be there if she wakes up. Everyone is waiting for that to happen.”

We can’t even begin to imagine how they’re feeling, especially considering today’s latest update. Homer isn’t alone here as Anne is also mom to Atlas Heche Tupper, 13, whom she shares with ex James Tupper.

It was only on Monday did we learn how truly serious her condition was when her rep opened up about her injuries, stating:

“At this time Anne is in extreme critical condition. She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident.”

It’s all so awful.

[Warning: Potentially Triggering Content]

This is WILD!!

A groom waited until his wedding day to reveal he knew his bride was having an affair with his pregnant sister’s husband! In a video going viral on TikTok, that originally caught traction in 2019 — twice viral, it’s that shocking — newlyweds in China can be seen standing before their guests at a party. Behind them is a screen playing a video of hearts — which abruptly switches to a steamy bedroom video!

Onlookers must have been confused at what they were seeing — until they recognized the participants in the sexy romp were none other than the bride and the groom’s brother-in-law! Yikes!!

Almost instantly, the disgraced woman threw her bouquet of flowers at her husband while several people jumped on stage, apparently trying to stop a physical fight from breaking out. The groom reportedly yelled:

“Did you think I didn’t know about this?!”

Wow!!

According to Asia One in 2019 when the video first went viral, the couple had been together for two years and had been engaged for six months before the drama. It was also claimed that the bride “suffered domestic violence” at the hands of the groom, causing her to lean on his sister’s husband for comfort. Over time, the comfort turned into something more and the affair began. Sorry, but it’s tough to commiserate with their actions here — the man was married with a baby on the way! Once the groom found out, he set out to “humiliate” her, which we’d say he successfully accomplished.

While the video first went viral in 2019, it has sparked even more conversation on TikTok now that it has been viewed almost six million times! A caption on the clip explained:

“The groom played a video of his wife cheating on him with her pregnant sister-in-law’s husband in front of everybody.”

Ch-ch-check out the insanity unfold (below)!

OMG!

So freaking petty!! Who waits until seemingly after they say “I do” to reveal that news?! And in front of everyone? We just know the family did NOT see that coming! Innerestingly, the video has sparked various reactions. Many love the groom’s desire to get revenge, commenting:

“Best revenge – in front of all their family and friends”

“Honesty, I am this petty and would 1000 percent do this”

“Man stood there knowing the calamity he’s about to cause”

But others have been left confused as to why he would have gone through with a wedding and party before dropping the bomb. Just think about all the money that went into the ceremony only for it to be one big scandal!

Viewers wondered:

“Isn’t this at the party so doesn’t that mean they already said I do?”

“Why’d he go through with the wedding?”

“So why did he waste all that money on the wedding?”

The best guess users had was that the groom probably couldn’t get the deposits back or may have learned of the infidelity too late, they mused:

“Maybe he found out too late and the wedding needed to be paid for regardless whether they broke it off”

“Got her parents to waste all that money on the wedding

“Satisfaction people. Embarrassing her in front of everyone was probably worth it for him.”

Funny enough, some outraged viewers are upset the bride was so angry by the reveal and called her decision to throw her flowers at her other half “wild,” adding:

“And SHE’S the one that gets mad at the end?”

“Not her throwing the flowers at him, the audacity”

LOLz! She may have been in the wrong, but we’re sure she never expected her bedroom video to be played in front of her close circle! That’s mortifying!!!

If only there was a “Where Are They Now” follow-up to this video because we’re dying to know how this controversy played out! Can you imagine the ripple effects this exposed affair must have had on everyone?! Wowza. We need a docuseries on this! Reactions, Perezcious readers?!

Nicola Peltz & Brooklyn Beckham FINALLY Address Victoria Beckham Feud Rumors!

Home » Brooklyn Beckham » Nicola Peltz & Brooklyn Beckham FINALLY Address Victoria Beckham Feud Rumors!

Mr. and Mrs. Peltz Beckham are speaking out!

Amid reports that Brooklyn Beckham’s mother Victoria Beckham is feuding with his wife Nicola Peltz, the couple is opening up about the rumors — and getting very candid about what’s really going on! In a new interview with Variety out on Wednesday, the Bates Motel star addressed claims she and her mother-in-law “can’t stand each other and don’t talk,” as explained by a Page Six source earlier this week. And, well, it kinda sounds like something s**tty did go down!

The 27-year-old actress believes the rumors caught fire because she didn’t wear one of the Spice Girls alum’s dresses on her wedding day in April, explaining:

“I was going to and I really wanted to, and then a few months down the line, she realized that her atelier couldn’t do it, so then I had to pick another dress.”

That seems odd, right?! If Victoria wanted a dress made, we’re SURE she could get it made! So, was it a last-minute announcement from Posh Spice that had her feathers ruffled? Because instead, the daughter of billionaire Nelson Peltz ended up wearing a custom Valentino Haute Couture gown with a sleeveless, square neckline, opera-length gloves, and a cathedral-length veil. Not too shabby! Take a look:

Stunning!!

Interestingly, back in 2020, a source even told The Sun that Victoria wanted her future daughter-in-law to wear one of her own gowns, saying:

“Victoria would like to keep it in the family when it comes to the gown and is thrilled Nicola has agreed.”

Nicola had “initially wanted a haute couture gown by Elie Saab,” but “decided to let Victoria design her dress.” She did wear a bright yellow Victoria original for her engagement, though.

As a Page Six source explained, seemingly after this wedding dress debacle, everything went downhill for the in-laws! They divulged:

“[Victoria and Nicola] can’t stand each other and don’t talk. The build-up to the wedding was horrendous.”

They continued:

“[Nicola didn’t want her mother-in-law] to be any part of the planning, and she wouldn’t clue Victoria in on anything. Communication was minimal.”

So something must have transpired!! But Nicola’s not revealing much else. Instead, she tried to shut down the speculation by clarifying:

“She didn’t say ‘you can’t wear it;’ I didn’t say I didn’t want to wear it. That’s where it started, and then they [tabloids] ran with that.”

Hmm. We can really feel the love with that statement.

In the same Variety interview, Brooklyn addressed the rumors, too, saying of the press:

“I’ve learned they’re always going to try to write stuff like that. They’re always going to try and put people down. But everyone gets along, which is good.”

That is good! The newlyweds don’t seem bogged down by the drama either, Nicola shared:

“The thing that’s great about us is that we don’t need anything from each other. We’re just so in love. There’s nothing I need from him or he needs from me.”

Later in the chat, the couple also opened up about their decision to combine last names. As we previously reported, some insiders speculate that the name change was made in an attempt to build the couple’s brand and capitalize on the Beckham’s fame amid a massive clash between the melding families. But Brooklyn had this to say:

“We had this idea — we kind of combined our last names. I was just like, ‘Oh, we could start a new thing, and it’ll be so cool to have our own kids and have little Peltz Beckhams running around.’ I keep saying to my wife, ‘I can’t wait to be a dad.’ I’m ready to have kids, but I always tell my wife, ‘Whenever you want.’”

Speaking of kids, they won’t be having them “anytime in the next year,” the Holidate star said:

“We would love to have a big family one day. We would love to have some of our own, and we would love to adopt.”

For now, they are more focused on their careers — Brooklyn’s being in the kitchen (whether or not he actually has the talent for it). His other half gushed:

“Listening to him talk about it, how much passion he has in his voice, it makes me fall more in love with him. It’s so endearing and sweet. He gets so excited with everything to do with the cooking space.”

The 23-year-old plans to create his own empire, adding:

“I would love to have my own pub. I would love to have my own sauces, knives, pots and pans… I want to have so many TV shows, and hopefully one day open up a pub in LA, because LA needs a pub.”

He’s also very proud to have embarked on a career that is unique to his family, he mused:

“I always say to my wife, ‘I wonder what our kids are going to want to love to do.’ But I’m so happy that I’m the first Peltz Beckham to do cooking — the first one in my family to do it.”

It’s cool to be the first, but it’s not like he isn’t getting a lot of help from his family and in-laws! His MEGA wealthy father-in-law is supposedly willing to fund any venture he has his heart set on, so… that’s definitely a level of privilege most newbies never get! Guess money can buy happiness?

And while they are denying the fam feud, some of what they had to say definitely seemed similar to the sources’ claims. So, what do YOU think is going on? Did the wedding dress issue get blown out of proportion? Or are these rich families really battling it out? Sound OFF (below)!

Kim Kardashian Is Super ‘Supportive’ Of Ex Pete Davidson Going To Trauma Therapy After Kanye’s Online Harassment!

Home » Kim Kardashian » Kim Kardashian Is Super ‘Supportive’ Of Ex Pete Davidson Going To Trauma Therapy After Kanye’s Online Harassment!

Kim Kardashian will always have Pete Davidson’s back – even if they aren’t in a relationship anymore!

ICYMI, the 28-year-old comedian reportedly “has been in trauma therapy in large part” due to Kanye West’s social media posts about him, with “the attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger.” It is no secret what a troubling year it has been for Pete, who has been very open about his struggles with his mental health. The 45-year-old rapper was essentially cyber bullying the former couple throughout their nine-month relationship, often taking to Instagram to bash Kim and threaten the Saturday Night Live alum, or “Skete” as he nicknamed him. Even after the breakup, Kanye could not help but gloat about it by posting a fake New York Times cover with the headline, “Skete Davidson Is Dead at Age 28.” Awful…

But fortunately, it sounds like he still has someone in his corner through all of this. Despite Pete and Kim being over, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum apparently has been super supportive of his decision to seek help for Kanye’s online harassment. A source shared with Page Six on Tuesday:

“Kim was very supportive of Pete going to therapy. Kanye was very detrimental. He was posting negative things – now add thousands and thousands of comments. Someone has to work with you to deal with something like that.”

Beyond Kim’s ex-husband’s terrible social media antics, the insider then noted Pete also received death threats from the Yeezy designer’s fans, which is partially why he sought “trauma therapy” for months now. Another confidant also pointed out:

“Getting death threats from [Kanye’s] fans and all the negative attention online doesn’t feel good for the average person — add someone who’s struggled with mental illness, and it’s even worse.”

Sadly, we doubt these hurtful messages from Kanye and his followers won’t stop anytime soon.

However, the second source told the outlet that Pete has “been able to heal like a normal person” while working on the upcoming new film Wizards! in Australia. Furthermore, the first source noted he “is still in therapy” while away, but is also “focusing on his film.” They added:

“The distance from the public eye has probably been good in a way.”

This time away certainly give him time to process his breakup with Kimmy Kakes — and hopefully allow him to work through what went down with Ye these past couple of months. Reactions, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments (below).

Britney Spears Speaks Out About Her Sons Amid Kevin Federline Drama

Home » Britney Spears » Britney Spears Speaks Out About Her Sons Amid Kevin Federline Drama

Britney Spears is sharing her side of things.

On Wednesday, the 40-year-old mother took to Instagram to give her take on what’s been going on with her sons, 16-year-old Sean Preston and 15-year-old Jayden James, amid all the sad, heartbreaking stories coming out.

It all started over the weekend, when a sneak peek of an upcoming interview with her baby daddy Kevin Federline was released, showing the 44-year-old making claims about their boys refusing to see her — and even refusing to go to her wedding! Of course, Britney and her husband, Sam Asghari, clapped right back, calling the news “hurtful.” Then MORE bad news for the pop star came out — according to K-Fed’s lawyer, her sons actually side with their grandfather, Jamie Spears!! Obviously we don’t understand why, but clearly the sons have their reasons — or maybe they’ve been told their reasons, at least. No one really knows for sure.

But now the freed Brit-Brit is speaking out, and here’s what she has to say:

A lot to unpack there. Regardless of who it is, we’re inclined to side with the mother on most matters, and we sincerely hope this momma bear and her cubs can heal and come together again. Wishing them the best.

90s Heartthrob Matthew Lawrence Seen On Hawaii Beach With TLC’s Chilli Following Separation From Cheryl Burke!

Home » TLC » 90s Heartthrob Matthew Lawrence Seen On Hawaii Beach With TLC’s Chilli Following Separation From Cheryl Burke!

Is Matthew Lawrence taking a dip in the dating pool following his divorce from Cheryl Burke?!

It would appear that’s not the only pool he’s plunging into as he can be seen getting wet ‘n’ wild with none other than Chilli. Yes, Chilli. As in, TLC. We know, right?! Somewhere there is a ’90s kid who shipped this odd coupling for years, and we hope they are doing backflips right now!

The Boy Meets World star was spotted with the singer, whose real name is Rozanda Thomas, in Hawaii on Monday where paps managed to snap some shots of the two spending quality time together. Sources told TMZ, who have the pics HERE, that the duo enjoyed some “intense convos” while relaxing on beach chairs before cooling off in the crystal blue waters.

Sounds nice!! We wonder if they were chasing any Waterfalls, LOLz! For real though, is this a thing?? Are they an item?!?

Well… Maybe not so fast. A rep for the 51-year-old singer clarified that she is NOT dating the Mrs. Doubtfire alum — rather the two are platonic friends just enjoying a beach hangout. The confidant added that Chilli had a TLC show on the island, and Matthew simply came to watch with some buddies.

Who says boys and girls can’t be just friends??! Sorry, ’90s kid…

This all comes in the wake of the 42-year-old’s split from his ex-wife, who decided to call it quits earlier this year. Cheryl and Matt made headlines after rekindling their romance in 2017 — 10 years after they initially dated in 2007 — following his older brother Joey Lawrence’s appearance on season three of the professional dancer’s show, Dancing with the Stars.

The two wed in 2019, but after three years of marriage it just didn’t pan out. Us Weekly broke the news the 38-year-old dancer had filed for divorce from Matthew in February of this year, citing “irreconcilable differences” and naming January 7 as the official date of separation.

Dating, breaking up, back together a decade later only to divorce after 3 years… Talk about a roller coaster romance! It’s sad the two couldn’t make it work on their second go ’round, but we’re happy they’re opting to prioritize themselves. We all remember what Cheryl had to say about orgasms back in June, so maybe she’s just trying to up her standards. Sounds like she’s the one chasing waterfalls, LOLz!

The DWTS alum hopped on Instagram back in February to update fans on the split, explaining: 

“I know I have always said I’m an open book with you guys, I do strive to be, and in writing this I’ve realized there really isn’t an easy way to announce that my marriage is ending. I hope you can understand that I will not be commenting any further at this time and am asking for understanding and privacy. Thank you all for all the kind words and support you’ve given me.”

Not too long after, a source told Us Weekly that the split “was not about kids,” but rather that “Cheryl’s taking this time to focus on next steps and focus on her mental health.”

Matthew had previously told the site in 2020 that their relationship success was due to “constant communication.” As of now, he still follows his ex-wife on IG, while she has seemingly severed all ties from him, including her follow. Ouch.

We hope the two find their happiness! What do you think of everything, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments (below)!
