Listen to “Showbiz – Aug 18, 2022” on Spreaker.


When we interviewed her earlier this year, Christine Quinn was vague about her future status on “Selling Sunset.” But now, production sources have told TMZ that Season 6 recently began filming and there’s no Christine in sight. Their sources say Christine will not be part of the two upcoming seasons of “Selling Sunset” and that it’s a mutual decision. Christine recently signed with IMG Models and she’s already been booking modeling gigs and appearing at fashion events. She’s also very involved in her husband’s real estate company, RealOpen, which sells house luxury houses to people buying with crypto.

“Shark Tank” returns for its 14th season on Sept. 23 with special guest Sharks popping up in various episodes alongside the regular Sharks. They include the founder of Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow, and the CEO and co-founder of DoorDash, Tony Xu. Other very successful people who will “guest Shark” this season including Emma Grede who might as well be called Emma Kardashian, she’s so tight with this family. Emma is the CEO and co-founder of Good American with Khloe, a founding partner of SKIMS with Kim, and the co-founder of Safely, a luxury line of safe home cleaning products she launched with Kris Jenner. Kendra Scott — whose jewelry was VERY popular among the pledges during Bama Rush — will also be a guest Shark this season.

Back in January, Cardi B teased her fans that she was thinking about getting the name of her son Wave tattooed on her face. Back in 2018, her husband Offset had the name of their daughter inked onto his jawline. Tattoo artist Robinson De Los Santos posted a video of himself giving Cardi her very first face tattoo, right there along her right jawline. We just can’t tell what it is. Neither Cardi nor Robinson has posted a close up of what the tattoo is. It looks like maybe some initials in red ink, but it doesn’t look like “W” is one of them. Cardi will let us know what it is when she’s ready.

Who says no to Taylor Swift? Chris Weitz. Who is Chris Weitz? He was the director of the 2009 hit movie “Twilight: New Moon.” In a recent podcast interview, Chris said that at the time he was filming, he and Taylor had the same agent. That agent told Chris that Taylor was a HUGE “Twi-hard” and wanted to be in the movie. Chris said their idea was to have Taylor be an extra in the diner or the cafeteria, but Chris. Said. NO. He thought having Taylor on screen would distract from the other characters and the storyline. While Chris joked that he kicks himself because he could’ve been hanging out with Taylor Swift and they could’ve become best friends, he still stands by his decision.

Back in 2011, Nicki Minaj opened for Britney Spears on her tour and they collaborated on a “Till the World Ends” remix. She is TEAM BRITNEY all the way. And in case you doubted that, Nicki let you know on a recent episode of her “Queen Radio” podcast. She went off on Kevin Federline for posting secretly recorded videos of Britney fussing at her disrespectful sons. Nicki said, “Do you understand what kind of a clown you have to be to be a whole, grown (BLANKING) man, and as soon as you see somebody happy and getting married and moving on and being free and feeling good in their own skin, to do the very thing that you know is going to attempt to break them down? Only cowards use the media against a famous person who they once loved, they procreated with, they’re being taken care of by, they once were being taken care of by, using the person’s fame as this constant ‘gotcha’ moment.” Nicki also dragged Kevin for dragging their sons into this, saying, “You wanna take your little goofy a** to do some (BLANKETY-BLANKING) interview? How dare you. How dare you encourage this woman’s children to be a part of your nonsense. When they look back, they’re gonna say, ‘Why, why, why did we do this?’ They’re kids. They don’t know how detrimental this is. But you know, (BLANK-BLANKER).” WHEW!!!
