STARTING DRAMA ….. Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s engagement captured the hearts of celebrities and fans alike this weekend.
But now one former baseball star could be brewing up trouble in paradise. Jose Canseco raised eyebrows on Sunday after he claimed that Rodriguez cheated on Lopez with his ex-wife Jessica Canseco.
Canseco began tweeting about the alleged affair while ‘watching World of Dance’, an NBC reality show in which Lopez is a judge.
‘Watching J.Lo text Alex Rodriguez, little does she know that he is cheating on her with my ex-wife Jessica,’ Canesco tweeted. ‘Poor girl, she has no idea who he really is.’
Canseco then said he was ‘there a few months back with her when he called her on her phone’, seemingly referring to Rodriguez and Jessica.
‘Alex Rodriguez stop being a piece of s**t stop cheating on Jennifer Lopez,’ he added. Canseco later said he was willing to take a polygraph test to prove that what he was saying about Rodriguez was ‘100 percent accurate’.
Roseanne Barr believes former first lady Michelle Obama is responsible for getting her fired from her eponymous ABC reboot.
The hit reboot of “Roseanne” was famously canceled in May 2018 after Barr, 66, posted a series of allegedly racist, Islamophobic and anti-Semitic tweets, including one saying that former President Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrett to someone from “Planet of the Apes” and the Islamic Brotherhood.
Barr initially took responsibility for the remark, which she has alternately blamed on using Ambien and supporting President Donald Trump, but now she believes the former first lady is behind her getting the reboot boot.
“She said, ‘This tweet is unforgivable.’ That’s what I was told and I tend to believe it because the woman who fired me is now working with the Obamas at Netflix,” Barr fumed to The Sunday Times (via The Sun). Barr appeared to be referring to Channing Dungey, the former ABC Entertainment president responsible for canceling “Roseanne.” Netflix hired her late last year to work on original programming, including content from the Obamas’ Higher Ground Productions.
In late May 2018, Barr retweeted a fan who claimed that the Obamas were behind her firing, though she never said so herself until this week. She replied to the tweet at the time, “Is this true?”
The claim has never actually been substantiated.
The comedian also expressed outrage at ABC still using her characters in “Roseanne” spinoff “The Conners,” in which her character was killed off in an opioid overdose.
In June 2018, Barr said in a statement that she accepted a settlement and to be removed to make way for “The Conners,” telling press, “I regret the circumstances that have caused me to be removed from ‘Roseanne.’ I agreed to the settlement in order that 200 jobs of beloved cast and crew could be saved, and I wish the best for everyone involved.”
“They think because they killed me it’s OK to use me, use the memory of me,” she fumed to The Times. “Still mention me. It’s still my show, but they stole it. They are going to do it to other comics. I’m just the first.”
Gwyneth Paltrow made a surprise cameo on this week’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” – and the jokes were all on her.
During an appearance in the Weekend Update sketch, the actress and wellness guru played a manager of her lifestyle company Goop, who reassures a fellow employee (played by Heidi Gardner) that she wouldn’t get fired after messing up while talking about the brand’s products.
“I need your help, because I’m really afraid Gwyneth’s going to fire me,” Gardner says to Paltrow.
“No, she doesn’t believe in firing, remember? It’s called conscious un-employing,” Paltrow reassures her, referencing her 2014 split from Chris Martin, which was described as a “conscious uncoupling.”
Paltrow tries to help out by taking over Gardner’s job of describing the products.
“OK, we have a new Himalayan salt scrub and it is the number one salt scrub … rated number one in overall salt,” she says, slowing down as she struggles for what else to say about the product. “I’d actually like to tell you what salt is instead.”
“I know what salt is,” Michael Che retorts.
“So you know it’s angry sugar?” Paltrow replies.
