I DID NOT KNOW THIS!
Reba was apparently in the running for the role of Molly Brown in Titanic! I feel like my whole world has been turned upside down! I loved Kathy Bates in the role, but gee, Reba would’ve been cool too. She has finally cleared up why she turned down the role in a recent interview with Taste of Country. She basically said the filming schedule was way too crazy and couldn’t make it work with her tour schedule.

Um. This is awesome.

Hollywood Headlines for April 23rd!

Tune in every weekday morning at 6:15a for all the latest in celeb and entertainment news!

So, some of the headlines you’ll read will seem like Robert Downey Jr. solely walked out on an interview because he didn’t want to answer the ‘tough questions’. I have the full interview with Channel 4 News presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy and you can clearly see RDJ’s body language from the start. I understand wanting to ‘be a reporter and ask those tough questions’, but come on dude. RDJ is clearly out just trying to promote Avengers: Age of Ultron and doesn’t have to put up with your awkward question-asking. See for yourself below.

YES. Here is BOTH Ashton and Mila’s response to the Ukrainian woman who claims the actress stole her beloved chicken, Doggie, a quarter century ago back in the old country. Read the full story in yesterday’s Hollywood Headlines and then enjoy the video below.

Kacey Musgraves has revealed that she is in the process of creating several Lucchese boot designs they will soon be unveiling.  She also shared that she’s getting into the vodka business with a brand called Zodiac Vodka.  She touted, “It’s gluten-free, if you’re into that, and I am.”

There’s no word on when products from Kacey’s new business partnerships will be hitting shelves, but details should be forthcoming soon.  She’ll also soon be releasing a title and a release date for her new album, the follow-up to Same Trailer, Different Park, which will feature her current single, “Biscuits.”

The latest reboot news…?

PLEASE GIVE UP! Stop it with the reboots! Of course, as I say that, I am kind of excited/intrigued by a Galaxy Quest TV show reboot. According to Variety, the TV reboot is being produced by Paramount Television, who are also behind the upcoming “School of Rock,” “Shutter Island,” “Shooter” and “Minority Report” TV remakes. Paramount TV declined to comment.

The following story was found at TMZ.com. Proceed with caution. Laughter is ahead.

Mila Kunis has nice breasts … problem is, she stole them along with other chicken parts, this according to a new lawsuit filed by a woman who claims to have been her best Ukrainian friend.

Kristina Karo claims 25 years ago she was in first grade with Mila in the Ukraine and they were inseparable. But Kristina says Mila had chicken envy — specifically a chicken which answered to the name Doggie. Kristina alleges in her lawsuit she loved Doggie like a dog, and so did Mila, who would come to her house and play with the little clucker.

But one day Doggie disappeared, and Kristina says Mila confessed that she stole it, saying, “Kristina, you can have any other chicken as a pet, you have a whole chicken farm.”

Kristina says in her lawsuit she became an emotional wreck and went into therapy.  

Years passed, Mila moved to L.A. and became a big star. Kristina also eventually moved to L.A. to pursue a singing career. But the proximity brought back all the bad memories, and Kristina says the visions of Doggie being stolen by her former best friend threw her right back into therapy.

Kristina now needs shrink money, and a little extra for all the emotional distress … in all, $5k.

And Kristina says Mila’s conduct has prevented her from pursuing the American dream.

Life, liberty and the pursuit of a happy meal.

Check out Kristina’s video here. Oh dear.

Gee, I love Amy Schumer. The actress and comedian dropped to the floor and bowed down at the power couple’s feet in one of the funniest and most uncomfortable displays of adoration ever. This was on the red carpet at the TIME 100 Gala in New York City.

Kanye was not amused and Kim wasn’t sure about what was happening. Amy’s popular Comedy Central sketch show Inside Amy Schumer returns next Tuesday for its fourth season. It’s unclear if Amy’s prank was possibly a publicity stunt, or just an attempt to make the couple as wildly uncomfortable as possible. Either way, I approve.

Another standing ovation for Mr. Randy Travis! This time, it’s a congratulatory ovation!
Travis was quietly married to his longtime fiance Mary Davis last month. The nuptials came after several years together, including hospitalization in July 2013 for a congestive heart failure and later a stroke. The two newlyweds made an appearance at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night, where a rep first revealed the news with Us Weekly.
——————————————————————————————————————–

Sunday was a big night…literally! This year’s American Country Music Awards set a new world record for the 70,252 fans that attended the broadcast (held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas), earning it the honor for Highest Attendance at an Awards Show Broadcast in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Among those now recognized by Guinness are Alabama for Most Consecutive Wins as Entertainer of the Year, with five from 1981 to 1985. Brooks & Dunn now have Guinness Records for both Most Wins for ACM Duo of the Year and Most Consecutive Wins for ACM Duo of the Year, 16 and eight respectively. And, Rascal Flatts is noted for Most Consecutive Wins for ACM Vocal Group of the Year and Most Wins for Vocal Group of the Year with seven. Guinness also now recognizes Brad Paisley for Most Consecutive ACM Male Vocalist Award wins and Miranda Lambert won for Most Consecutive ACM Female Vocalist Award wins.

Let’s just give everyone ALL THE AWARDS!

Of course this was released yesterday…

WIllie Nelson and fellow country legend Merle Haggard released the video for the first single from their joint album, Django and Jimmie. In the clip for “It’s All Going to Pot,” premiered on Conan O’Brien’s website, you can see the two greats at work in the studio, recording the track, palling around and, yeah, partaking in 4/20 activities.
