Lance Bass May Get Part Of His “Brady Bunch” Dream To Come True -
It’s no secret Lance Bass was crushed when he didn’t get the “Brady Bunch” house.
Because of his complimentary tweet after finding out HGTV scored the pad, Bass may still get to be involved in its restoration. Sources tell “TMZ” that after HGTV tweeted a cool reply to Lance, they reached out to him with an offer to be a part of the home’s remodeling. There is supposedly a meeting set up for next week.
The work on the home will be televised and the ‘NYSYNC member may be the host or even producer. The cool thing is that after the home is restored to its 1970s glory, there will be a TV show filmed there regularly.
Brad Pitt is fighting back after Angelina Jolie accused him of short-changing her on child support.
Yesterday (Tuesday) the actor filed court documents claiming he loaned Angie $8 million for her current L.A. residence and paid $1.3 million in bills for her and their six children, according to USA Today.
Angie's legal team quickly fired back, saying the $8 million loan came with interest and that he has not paid half the children's expenses.
Earlier this week, Jolie claimed in a court filing that her ex hadn’t paid any "meaningful" child support and threatened to get a court order for more money. Pitt's lawyer, Lance Spiegel, blasted the filing, calling it "unnecessary, omits material information, and is a thinly veiled effort to manipulate media coverage."
The Academy Awards has made some changes designed to keep the show “relevant in a changing world.”
The big addition is a new award category for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film. In a message to its members, the Academy said eligibility requirements for the category and other details would be "forthcoming," but it's believed to give superhero movies and other box-office hits a better chance at winning Oscars.
The Academy will also will shorten the telecast to three hours to make the ceremony "more accessible for our viewers worldwide" and to do that some of the awards will be handed out during commercial breaks.
Talk About It:
- It's the first new category since 2001’s addition of Best Animated Feature.
- Many believe this is a response to Black Panther.
- I still won't tune in.
- Make it a two-hour show and maybe.
