Just when you thought reality TV was safe, there’s going to be a Trump-related dating show. The idea is from David Goss, the man who created TrumpSingles.com. The site launched last year and caters to GOP lovers. Goss has partnered with a producer for a TV series based on the site. The concept is still being finalized but it will be a competition, revolving around politics. It won’t be limited to people from TrumpSingles.com.
Keegan-Michael Key‘s estranged wife says his ending of their 17-year marriage was so unexpected, it’s causing her serious health problems … in addition to leaving her in financial ruin.
Cynthia Blaise say she’s suffering from severe depression, anxiety, hair and weight loss and PTSD … according to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ. She says she’s been taking 5 different meds since the 2015 divorce filing.
Blaise says she financially supported him early in their marriage with her work as a Hollywood dialect coach — and even when his career took off, she was at his beck and call.
She says Key made way more than her in the final years of their marriage — including a $1.2 mil Toyota endorsement deal — but she’s fallen on financial hardship since the split … due to giving up her career.
We’ve reached to Michael’s rep, no word back. Blaise wants spousal support, a fair split of assets and attorney fees.
