It’s Wednesday June 22nd 2016, and here is what’s making headlines today,
- Actress Selma Blair didn’t have a smooth ride home, and obviously the media freaked.
On Monday, the “Cruel Intentions” actress was taken to hospital after being removed in a stretcher from her flight to L.A for reportedly having an outburst mid-flight.
TMZ was the first to report this story, saying a source on the plane saw Blair enjoying a glass of wine when she started ranting about her fear of an unidentified man.”He burns my private parts. He won’t let me eat or drink,” she reportedly stated. “He beats me. He’s going to kill me.”
After nurses tended to Blair and checked her bags, the pilot allegedly called to the state there was a passenger who mixed alcohol and medications.
Blair was on vacation with her 4-year-old son, Arthur and later met up with ex and father of Arthur, Jason Bleick.
Yesterday, Blair made a statement to Vanity Fair magazine to apologize for her erratic behaviour, calling it a “mistake.”
In the statement she said, “I am a flawed human being who makes mistakes and am filled with shame over this incident. I am truly very sorry.”
What I Think
Strange why she chose Vanity Fair and not PEOPLE, which is the most famous magazine for celebrities to apologize for their latest public antics.
I feel bad for Blair.
This is a common problem, which is why people should ALWAYS read the labels of all medications before taking them!! But sorry for the preaching.
- Drake has pulled a Bieber my friends.
The 6IX God has ultimately cancelled all his VIP packages (meeting the star, taking a photo with him, etc) for his Summer Sixteen tour.
I know what you’re thinking..
Maybe Drizzy is feeling less safe due to all that is happening the world.
But we are told by his reps that this is just not the case.
E! News spoke to a close source to the situation.
“This has nothing to do with Drake being concerned about security or anything like that. The honest answer is that these meet and greets are tiring and stressful for artists. To do a full show every single night, then spend an hour and a half with very energetic people trying to touch you, talk to you, it’s tiring,”
According to Ticketmaster, the VIP packages, valued up to $1000, are promised a seat in the first five rows and merchandise.
The package also includes meeting the rapper, plus photo ops with Drake and Future, who is also on the tour.
What I Think
So this is more like the Justin Bieber situation.
Like Bieber, Drake is admitting to the fact that meeting fans is exhausting on one’s energy level, and doing it every night after a full show is a lot on them.
I get it, but those who already paid for their VIP packages might not be so understanding.
- Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx are officially confirmed dating.
A friend of Fox’s, reality star Claudia Jordan from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” spilled the beans about her dear friend’s relationship.
She joined the “Allegedly” podcast on Tuesday and was asked about the pair’s status.
When asked about Fox she said, “(He’s a) good friend of mine. Never (hooked up with him.”
When asked about his relationship with Holmes she replied with, “He is very happy with her. I like that he seems very happy.”
The confirmation comes after Holmes was seen sporting an engagement ring in January, recirculating speculation she’s been seeing Foxx since her split from Tom Cruise.
UPDATE FROM TODAY: Jordan is supposedly now back tracking what she told “Allegedly” podcast.
She is now telling Entertainment Tonight she “misspoke.”
“I have no knowledge of Jamie with Katie at all,” the reality star and radio personality, 43, told Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday, June 22. “I’ve never seen them together. He’s never told me he’s dating her.”
