Paul Walker’s Brothers Open To Returning To “Fast” Franchise:
When Paul Walker died in 2013, his two brothers Caleb and Cody helped “Furious 7” producers finish the film, and now they say they’d be willing to stand in for their bro again.
Paul’s face was digitally superimposed on his brothers’ bodies in order to help his character Brian O’Conner ride off into the sunset, and while his character is mentioned twice in 2017’s “The Fate of the Furious,” he doesn’t make an appearance for obvious reasons.
“I just hope we get to — I don’t know — have a little cameo and bring Paul back to save the day and I get to help create that again,” Caleb says. “That’s my dream and I hope we get to do that in one of the future movies.” Cody adds,““I think there could potentially be a way to do it. But it would take a lot of thought and it’d have to be tasteful. It would have to be tasteful.”

Bethenny Frankel’s Beu’s Last Words May Explain Death:
TMZ reports that Bethenny Frankel’s late boyfriend Dennis Sheilds may have revealed what caused his death to EMTs.
The site claims that before passing he was able to get out a few words, telling EMTs and officers that because of his back pain he had ingested prescribed oxycodone as well as Vicodin and a sleeping pill. Taking sleeping pills with Opioids is dangerous since both slow respiratory function, which could lead to death.
Sources also say cops found several prescription bottles in Shields’ Trump Tower apartment, but no illicit drugs or drug paraphernalia. So far no autopsy report or official cause of death has been released.
Donald Trump Called Out For Saying Aretha “Worked For Him:”
As we previously told you, President Donald Trump paid tribute to Aretha Franklin during his Cabinet meeting yesterday, but some on the Internet are not pleased with his choice of words. They are particularly upset that he said, “She worked for me on numerous occasions.” Well, not only does Showbiz411 say Aretha never worked for Donald, and even stopped staying at his hotels after 2014, folks on Twitter were just overall upset that he’d even say that while paying tribute to the legend.
“When Trump says Aretha "worked for him many times," he says with the arrogance of a slave owner...,” one person wrote, while another added, “She may have performed at one of your hotels or casinos, Mr. Trump, but do not be confused; The Queen of Soul NEVER EVER WORKED for you. But you, Mr. Trump, you work for us and, sooner or later, you will be fired.”
To be fair, Trump could have been referring to Aretha performing at his casinos. The Press of Atlantic City reports she performed at the Trump’s Castle casino in 1988 and the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort in the 1990s. Check out some of the reactions below.

Scarlett Johansson is the world's highest-paid actresses, according to Forbes. The actress earned $40.5 million this year, thanks in large part the Avengers movies.
Angelina Jolie was number-two with $28 million. Most of that money comes from her salary for the upcoming Maleficent 2. Jennifer Aniston was third with $19.5 million. Most of her money is made from endorsements deals with Emirates airlines, Smartwater and Aveeno.
Jennifer Lawrence was fourth with $18 million and Reese Witherspoon rounded out the Top 5 with $16.5 million.
Mila Kunis, Julia Roberts, Cate Blanchett, Melissa McCarthy and Gal Gadot also made the list.
Last year's top earner, Emma Stone, didn't make the Top 10.
Angelina Jolie has been ordered to give Brad Pitt more time with their six children, according to The Blast.
Until the August 21st court hearing to determine a permanent arrangement, Angie must give her soon-to-be ex-husband at least “four hours every other day on school days and twelve hours every other day on non-school days.”
This comes on the heels of the actress claiming in court documents that Brad hasn't been paying his fair share of child support. Not that she needs the money. Angie just came in second on Forbes' list of the year's highest paid actresses.
Despite a campaign to get James Gunn rehired for Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Disney is standing by its decision to part ways with the director.
The company fired Gunn last month after dozens of his racy tweets resurfaced. Since then, the Guardians of the Galaxy stars defended their director. Chris Pratt and company even published an open letter asking that he be re-instated. But according to Variety, Walt Disney studio chairman Alan Horn met with Gunn "but only as a courtesy to clear the air." Though the meeting was described as "civil and professional," Horn reportedly refused to budge on his decision not to rehire Gunn.
The filmmaker will still be part of the third Guardians movie. Disney will reportedly use his script.
