Eamonn Holmes aims swipe at former ITV colleagues after exit ‘Don’t have to be good in TV’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Eamonn Holmes, 62, gave a candid interview last week in which the GB News breakfast show host aimed a swipe at his former colleagues on ITV. When asked what the “worst” thing about leaving ITV’s This Morning was, Eamonn answered that he felt his “reputation” had been damaged.

The 62-year-old also blamed “someone in authority” who he claimed didn’t like him.

He also claimed this person had an “agenda” against him.

Eamonn left This Morning in December 2021 after hosting for 15 years alongside his wife Ruth Langsford.

In the interview, he went on to slam his former ITV colleagues by saying they weren’t necessarily “good” at their jobs and that “you just have to have someone in authority that likes you”.

He hasn’t let the career move affect his “confidence”.

The broadcaster said: “I left This Morning with my reputation damaged, but my confidence didn’t suffer.

“I won’t have propaganda and lies said against me, you know – ‘Oh, Eamonn’s got old, Eamonn’s male, pale and stale.’

“One person in authority didn’t like me and had an agenda, and that was it.

“It could have cost both of us our jobs, but the station probably secretly relished the publicity,” he told The Telegraph.

The Breakfast With Eamonn And Isabel host added that the feud was over very quickly and they are now good friends.

Last week, Eamonn also hit out at Keir Starmer, calling him a “dullard” who can’t relate to working class people.

However, his co-star Isabel had the opinion that politicians should focus on policies rather than entertaining the public.

Sean Paul Addresses Past Beyoncé Hookup Rumors

Beyoncé‘s “Baby Boy” has always stayed on Sean Paul‘s mind.

The dancehall-influenced duet, featured on Beyoncé’s debut solo album Dangerously in Love, was the song of the summer when it was released in 2003. And while the sizzling smash hit (and steamy music video) sent temperatures soaring that season, it also sparked romance rumors between the two collaborators—despite the fact that Beyoncé was already dating now-husband Jay-Z.

In a new interview with The Daily Beast, Sean addressed the speculation and shut down claims that he and Beyoncé had something more than a working relationship. “Nah! I wish I did!” he said, when asked if they hooked up during that era. “She’s beautiful.”

In fact, Sean said they “only performed the song three times together—ever.”

“She had a few hits with Destiny’s Child, and they would do the Caribbean, but we didn’t really hang out,” the Jamaican musician noted. “I’d always admired her music and she’s beautiful. So, when I heard Beyoncé was stepping out on her own and wanted me to do a single, I was like ‘Hell f–king yeah.'”

Johnny Depp Trial: Amber Heard Confirms James Franco’s Penthouse Visit

Amber Heard shared her take on the video footage showing her and James Franco in an elevator together the night before she filed for divorce from Johnny Depp in May 2016.

During the on-going defamation trial between the actress and her ex, Heard explained that she was “close” pals with Franco, whom she appeared in two movies with, and felt supported by the actor amid her rocky, and allegedly violent, romance with Depp.

“He was my friend and he lived next door,” she recalled of her relationship with Franco, while testifying on May 17. “And I had, frankly, exhausted my support network with my usual friends. I was happy to welcome as much friendship at that time that I could possibly get.”

Elevator surveillance footage, time-stamped May 22, 2016 around 11 p.m. was shared with the Virginia courtroom, showing Heard, 36, and Franco standing together as they made their way to the actress’ penthouse. At one point in the video, the actor lays his head on Heard’s shoulder and she appears to place her head on his head. They then exit the elevator together.

Strictly’s Motsi Mabuse scolds sister Oti for not calling her back ‘Ends up being never!’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Motsi Mabuse, 41, took to social media on Tuesday morning to express her frustration that her sister Oti Mabuse, 31, had failed to return her calls.

She wasn’t pleased with her other sister Phemelo either. The Strictly star posted a tweet in view of her 73,000 followers, asking her followers if they could relate.

The dancer wrote, on the micro-blogging site: “Do you guys know that feeling when your sisters say I will call you back and it ends up being never lol , just saying @OtiMabuse @phemelomosadi.”

Motsi tagged her sisters Oti and Phemelo in her tongue-in-cheek post.

She also added a hilarious gif of Sandra Oh, saying: “Today? Tomorrow? In 50 years?” in a joking reference to Motsi wondering how long it might take her sisters to call her back.

The 41-year-old asked her many followers if they could relate.

In February, younger sister Oti opened up about the “backlash” she had faced as a figure in the public eye.

She said: “When it came to competitions against white children, I was made to feel unwelcome in the beginning.

“I didn’t fit in, I didn’t have the right costumes because we couldn’t afford them.”

“There were structures in place to make sure the black dancers would never win.”

She later moved to Germany, where she joined the cast of the German version of Strictly and finished in fifth and sixth place across two series.

Grimes Auctioning Off Her Met Gala Accessories to Support Ukraine

Elon Musk & Grimes Welcome Baby No. 2

Couture for a cause.

Grimes is doing her part to support the Black, Indigenous and people of color of Ukraine by auctioning off some of her most memorable fashion accessories.

“I’m auctioning stuff from my Met gala look last year to raise money to help get BIPOC families out of Ukraine since they’re having trouble exiting at the border,” she shared in an Instagram post on May 16, adding that the auction on display at Los Angeles’ HVW8 Gallery includes “the works of 50 distinguished artists who aim to support Emergency Response & BIPOC families in and out of Ukraine.”

Explaining that each piece in the auction “offers a unique interpretation of the theme ‘resistance,'” Grimes donated a whimsical pair of earcuffs, designed by Romantic Elf Jewelry, and chrome CHRISHABANA x Dune Harkonnen face mask.

The experimental musician wore the pieces to the 2021 Met Gala back in September, along with a sheer Iris Van Herpen gown, for the event’s “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” theme. Her look—which was inspired by the 1984 cult classic Dune (and subsequent 2021 remake) based on Frank Herbert’s novel—also included a replica Medieval sword repurposed from an Colt AR-15A3. The weapon, however, is not up for auction, as its “a permanent piece” of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection.

Erinn Hayes Goes From Can Wait to Can F**k Himself

Erinn Hayes has entered the television multiverse. 

The Childrens Hospital actress has joined the cast of the second season of AMC’s Kevin Can F**k Himself, the network confirms to E! News. On the surface, Hayes jumping onboard the Annie Murphy-starring comedy doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. 

Oh, but this is no ordinary casting news!

Kevin Can F**k Himself is largely speculated to have been inspired by the CBS comedy Kevin Can Wait, which starred Kevin James and ran for two seasons from 2016 to 2018. AMC and the show’s producers have never explicitly connected the dots, but the writing is basically on the wall.

Kevin Can Wait was a traditional sitcom featuring James as a recently-retired police officer on Long Island, whereas Kevin Can F**k Himself is a meta commentary on the traditional sitcom itself, featuring Allison (Murphy) as a woman in an unhappy marriage to her husband named Kevin, all while being reduced to a secondary character in her own story.

Hayes starred on season one of the sitcom before her character Donna was killed off in the season two premiere. Hayes, who played James’ wife on the show, was effectively replaced by James’ King of Queens on-screen wife Leah Remini and the rest was history.

A short history, in fact. Kevin Can Wait was canceled after its second season.

MLB Player Matt Harvey Suspended After Providing Tyler Skaggs Drugs

The fate of Matt Harvey‘s baseball career for the time being has been revealed.

Harvey—who testified in court in February that he provided the late Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs with drugs—has received a 60-game suspension without pay that retroactively went into effect on April 29, according to MLB.com.

According to the site, Harvey’s suspension comes as a result of violating the Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Harvey—who once played for the Los Angeles Angels and now is contracted with the Baltimore Orioles—was suspended by Major League Baseball after he provided a testimony in the trial of Eric Kay, per ESPN.

Kay, who was formerly the Los Angeles Angels communications director, was brought to trial over the July 2019 death of Skaggs—who was found in his Texas hotel room after having suffocated from his own vomit. Skaggs’ autopsy determined that he had fentanyl, oxycodone and alcohol in his system.

In February, Harvey testified in court that he had used cocaine and oxycodone himself during his career, and also provided Skaggs with oxycodone pills while on the Los Angeles Angels team, per ESPN. Throughout the trial, Harvey and four other Los Angeles Angels alums admitted to receiving opioids from Kay.

After the eight-day trial ensued, a jury found Kay guilty on two felony charges (including providing the drugs that resulted in the death of Skaggs).

Teresa Giudice’s Fiancé Luis Ruelas Speaks Out on Abuse Allegations

Season 12 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has been marred by rumors about Teresa Giudice‘s fiancé, Luis “Louie” Ruelas, and now he’s setting the record straight. 

Host Andy Cohen put everything on the table during the third and final part of the RHONJ reunion on May 17, asking Louie outright. “A lot of women that you’ve dated who have unkind things to say about you,” Andy said. “There’s road rage incidents, you demand sex all the time, emotionally abusive, slashed a girlfriend’s tire, your family doesn’t like you, physical abuse in front of kids…is any of it true?”

“We were basically in toxic relationships,” Louie responded. “When you’re in toxic relationships, it felt emotionally abusive to me, but I’m not gonna label it that way.”

Moving down the list of allegations, Andy asked Louie if he really demands sex “four times a day”—Louie said no, he can’t have that much sex—and whether he has a domestic violence record. Regarding the latter, Louie said, “Two incidents have come up recently, and those were arguments with my wife over my children when we were getting divorced.”

Josh Duggar’s Cousin Encourages Wife Anna to “Stand Up” & Divorce Him

Josh Duggar‘s cousin has a message for his wife, Anna, ahead of his sentencing in his child pornography trial.

On May 17, five months after Josh was found guilty of receiving and processing child porn, Amy King penned an open letter to Anna telling her that she’s “being surrounded by the wrong kind of support.” Sharing a throwback photo of herself hugging the mother-of-seven, Amy wrote on Instagram, “Anna, I feel for you. No woman wants to be in your shoes.”

Anna has been married to Josh since 2008 and shares her children—Mackynzie, 12; Michael, 10; Marcus, 8; Meredith, 6; Mason, 4; and Maryella, 2, and Madyson, six months—with the 19 Kids and Counting alum.

“You’ve been taught since you were a child that marriage is forever and you prayed for God to send you a partner,” Amy wrote to Anna. “You’ve constructed a life and a family with him. You didn’t choose any of this, and your kids certainly didn’t either.”

Amy went on to clarify that she wasn’t “coming after” Anna but that she was expressing what’s on her mind as a “fierce protector.”

“If no one else in your life is saying it, I need you to understand that there is no shame in divorcing Josh,” she shared. “Someday your kids will be old enough to understand what kind of guy their father really is. You can’t protect them from the truth for forever!”

Enchanted Sequel: See Amy Adams & Maya Rudolph’s in First Look

Once upon a time, we got a new first look at the Enchanted sequel. 

Disney Studios tweeted a first look of Disenchanted—the magical sequel to Enchanted—showing an image of Amy Adams and Maya Rudolph mid-stare down. Amy, who plays the leading character of Giselle, is seen dressed in a royal blue gown with a peacock feather collar. Maya, who plays a new face in the franchise by the name of Malvina Monroe, is wearing a black gown with gold details. She tops the look off with a matching cape, red crystal necklace and crown.

The look between the two characters suggests there may be some bad blood between Giselle and the new character in town. But we won’t know for sure until the sequel hits the Disney+ streamer on Thanksgiving.

Amy was previously seen sharing a smooch with Patrick Dempsey on the set of the new movie in New York on April 5, giving fans hope for a happily ever after moment to adore. Amy and Patrick, who plays Robert Philip, were also photographed on set in Buckinghamshire, England, in March donning fairy-tale outfits. Amy was even seen pushing a pram, hinting at a possible child for Giselle.
