MTV BLAMES JLO FOR DISASTER RATINGS – EXCLUSIVE

MTV Video Music Awards ratings hit an all-time low this year and now producers are blaming Jennifer Lopez and even talking about scrapping the entire show all-together!

“You cannot forget the TV is a business and live award shows are expensive. With the ratings hitting an all-time low for the VMA’s there is no way the company can justify continuing with the award show. Shows must get viewers to get advertisers or else they will get cancelled. At this point MTV has little other choice but to finally cancel the show,” sources tell STRAIGHT SHUTER.

“Whenever there is a ratings disasters fingers are pointed. At the moment, most fingers are aiming at Jennifer Lopez. She got the big award and put on the big performance and she couldn’t attract the viewers. It is going to be a long time before anymore builds a live TV show around her again.”

MEGHAN AND HARRY ASK GEORGE AND AMAL CLOONEY TO BE ROYAL GODPARENTS – EXCLUSIVE

Meghan and Harry are getting so close with Hollywood royalty, George and Amal Clooney, that the Duke and Duchess have asked their new best friends if they would consider being godparents when the little baby arrives.

“Meghan and Harry have made it no secret that they both want children as soon as possible and although no official baby news has been announced yet, the couple have already signed up George and Amal as future godparents, once again shaking Royal norms,” sources tell STRAIGHT SHUTER. “The four of them have become very close and the royal couple have vacationed with the Clooney’s in Italy. This is now the circle that Meghan mixes with. Lots of her old friends have disappeared.”

MATT DAMON DUMPS BEN AFFLECK! – EXCLUSIVE

While Ben Affleck fights his demons in rehab, one friend who will not be by his side is Matt Damon.

“Matt will always love Ben and think of him like a brother but sometimes you have to step away to let people save themselves. The two of them are not as close anymore. Matt is focused on his wife and family and put his party days well behind him. While Ben is still living the fast life,” sources tell STRAIGHT SHUTER. “They have a long history together and will always have each other’s backs, but at the moment they don’t talk a lot or even see that much of each other anymore. This is something that Ben needs to do alone.”
