Listen to “Showbiz – Oct 8, 2021” on Spreaker.


Do you believe in manifestation? You put something out there in the universe and it comes back to you. Back in the summer, Nicki Minaj just put it out there — she wanted to host “The Real Housewives of Potomac” reunion. At the time, Andy Cohen posted that he would gladly give up his seat for her, and yesterday it happened. We don’t know how involved she is in the Potomac reunion but Andy revealed on Instagram, “It’s the Reunion I could never get away with! At the end of ours, tonight @nickiminaj surprised the #RHOP and did her own thing! #AndyConda.” As soon as we have the air date for that, we’ll let you know.

Woody Harrelson was having dinner with one of his daughters on the rooftop bar at the Watergate Hotel in DC when he noticed a man was taking pictures of them. Woody walked over and asked the man to delete the photos, but apparently he had been drinking and wasn’t in a very cooperative mood. That led to an argument and the guy reportedly lunged at Woody, who punched him right in the throat. Police determined that Woody acted in self defense, so he won’t face any charges. By the way, Woody is in DC filming an HBO series called “The White House Plumbers,” which is based on the Watergate scandal.

We may have a new couple alert….or not. We’re not real sure. Selena Gomez and Chris Evans have been spotted together a few times recently. On Oct. 1, the two of them were photographed leaving the same studio in LA separately. Other photos from the same day showed them leaving the same restaurant, again at separate times. Are they dating? Are they working together on an upcoming project? We’re not sure. However! Chris has started following Selena on Instagram. At this point, she hasn’t returned the follow. But if you go back in time to 2015, during an interview on “Watch What Happens Live,” Selena admitted to Andy Cohen that Chris was her number one celebrity crush. At the time, she was so embarrassed and said, “Oh man, he’s either gonna hate me or love me.” But Andy said he thought Chris would love her. And maybe six years later, he does!

Kanye recently filed trademarks to put his mother’s name “Donda” on a ton of tech products, and now he’s filed trademark applications to put Ye on 10 different items, including computers, headphones, sanitary masks, walking sticks, and an online dating service! Of course, everybody is honing in on that one. One person commented on social media, “It’s gon be a Christian no sex before marriage typa website.” Some are very enthusiastic about this possible venture. One posted, “Catch me on YeezyMingle,” and another said, “Maybe now I’ll finally be able to find the girl who loves him as much as I do.”

Adele is on the cover of the November issue of “British Vogue” looking absolutely stunning. In the interview, she talks about everything from her divorce to her new music to her weight loss. As far as what led to her divorce from Simon Konecki, Adele said her life started to shift around the time of her Saturn’s return, a time between the age of 27-32 where Saturn fully orbits around the sun and returns to the position it was in when you were born. Some believe that phase of live leads to a lot of personal upheaval. Adele said, “I hit my Saturn return. It’s where I lost the plot. When that comes, it can rock your life. It shakes you up a bit: Who am I? What do I want to do? What makes me truly happy?” Adele doesn’t blame that for her divorce, but it was a part of it. She said, “I was just going through the motions and I wasn’t happy. Neither of us did anything wrong. Neither of us hurt each other or anything like that. It was just: I want my son to see me really love, and be loved. It’s really important to me…I’ve been on my journey to find my true happiness ever since.”As far as her 100 lbs weight loss, Adele doesn’t appreciate that people say she got a post-divorce “revenge body.” In fact, she never set out to lose weight. She was trying to control her anxiety and found that working out did the trick. She said, “It was always about becoming strong and giving myself as much time every day without my phone… I work out 2 or 3 times a day…I do weights in the morning, then I normally hike or box in the afternoon, and then I go and do my cardio at night. I was basically unemployed when I was doing it. And I do it with trainers. It’s not doable for a lot of people.” Adele got a lot of praise for the weight loss, but she was shocked when she got backlash, as well. She said, “My body’s been objectified my entire career…Visually I represented a lot of women. But I’m still the same person. And the worst part of the whole thing was that the most brutal conversations were being had by other women about my body. I was very f***ing disappointed with that. That hurt my feelings.”
