Margot Robbie to play Tonya Harding in new movie.

Posted on: May 2nd, 2017 by Candy

EXCLUSIVE: Margot Robbie has come attached to I, Tonya, a script by Steven Rogers about the crazy story of Tonya Harding. Remember her? She was the ice princess who emerged from a poor upbringing and rough childhood in Portland, OR to rise to the top of the sport of figure skating with a ferocious determination and athleticism that allowed her to become the first American woman to complete the triple axel in major competitions. That propelled her to victory in the 1991 U.S. Figure Skating Championships and second in the World Championships.

Trump Inspired Dating Show

Posted on: March 3rd, 2017 by Candy

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.

Key of Key and Peele going through divorce.

Posted on: March 1st, 2017 by Candy

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.
