Here, Have Another Sheetload!

BS SHOW BIZ BUZZ:
★ Demi Moore has revealed that she has had her two front teeth “sheared off” and now wears cosmetic replacements. How? Demi, who is known for her pearly white smile, told Jimmy Fallon  that she would love to be able to tell us that it was “skateboarding or something really kind of cool”, but went on to attribute the loss of one tooth to stress and say that she “literally knocked” the other out recently.  Although she was wearing the replacement teeth, she showed the audience a picture of herself missing one tooth, and joked that her three daughters like her gap-toothed look.

★ You probably know that ‘Bachelor In Paradise’ suddenly suspended production in Mexico last week amid an investigation into alleged misconduct. Host Chris Harrison is speaking out for the first time by issuing a lengthy statement about the incident, but he’s not saying much; “Out of respect to all involved, there’s only so much I can and will say at this time. Normally with a situation like this I would not say anything until the incident is fully resolved, but with all the rumors and misinformation being put out there, I don’t find that to be possible anymore.”  He didn’t clear up any of the allegations going around, but urged people to wait until an investigation is complete.  He also apologized for “any inconvenience and disappointment” to the cast, crew and fans of the show,  which has been put on a production hold amid misconduct allegations at the filming site in Mexico.

★ Julia Stiles is expecting her first child with fiancé Preston Cook. No word on a due date except that it is expected ‘later this year’.  The ‘Save the Last Dance’ actress and Cook became engaged on Christmas Eve 2015.  Stiles is currently in London promoting her new series, ‘Riviera’.
-People
★ After months of mocking President Donald Trump on Twitter, author Stephen King woke up to the news on Tuesday that he had been blocked by the commander-in-chief.  Luckily, another literary voice of the resistance stepped in to help. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who is as vocal in her criticism of Trump as King, offered to send him screenshots of the President’s tweets through direct messaging.
(You can block someone on Twitter?  Maybe THAT’s why I can’t find anyone I work with on there!)
-EW
★ ‘Game of Thrones’ fans were disappointed when they found out that there would be only seven shows in the new season.  Now, some good news.  Apparently some of the shows will run longer than an hour.  The runtimes have been released and while some are around an hour long, three run beyond that, and one is a full 81 minutes long. (With only 7 episodes, they needed the extra time just to fit all the characters in!)
-LAD Bible
★ The cast of ‘13 Reasons Why’ is officially back to work. Just a month after Netflix renewed the controversial hit series about Hannah Baker and her suicide for a second season, the stars of the series have taken to social media to share the news, revealing that production has already begun.

BS MUSIC NOTES:
• Geri Halliwell – is releasing a tribute song to George Michael.  Halliwell reports that she enlisted some of Michael’s band and singers to appear on the track, which will be released June 23, with proceeds going to the late ‘Wham!’ singer’s favorite charity, Child Line.
• Def Leppard – are releasing a 30th anniversary expanded reissue of their classic ‘Hysteria’ album.  Fans can choose from a number of different formats ranging from 2 to 7-disc versions.  They will all hit stores Aug 4.
• Katy Perry – is changing her tune … literally. She modified a key lyric from her diss track “Swish Swish” during a concert on Monday, after apologizing to her longtime rival Taylor Swift. Rather than singing the original line “Don’t you come for me / No, not today” Perry sang, “God bless you on your journey / Oh, baby girl.” (Catchy.)
• Eddie Vedder – Paul McCartney punched him in the face.  Vedder says that he was once hanging out with McCartney at a Seattle hotel bar when a story got more intense than anticipated. McCartney was illustrating how he hit some guy, and when he did that, accidentally hit Vedder in the face.  Although he felt it for a few days, Vedder says he was so proud that he had been hit by a Beatle and when the pain went away, he missed it.
• Ice Cube – was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday.
• Brad Paisley – got in on the Nashville Predators fan tradition of tossing a catfish on the ice during Game 6 of the 2017 Stanley Cup Final on Sunday night. Although he didn’t actually launch it onto the ice, he was spotted waving around a large catfish in one of the arena’s suites. Quote: “I fished all morning to get that.”
• Luke Combs – his full-length debut made the top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart upon it’s release on Tuesday.  ‘This One’s For You’ ranked at number 5 on the chart when it was released on Tuesday.  Halsey tops the chart with “Hopeless Fountain Kingdom”.

TEACHING KIDS THAT EVERYTHING HAS A PRICE:
The Principal of a school in Washington DC has an offer for her students.  And she is backing it up with cold, hard cash.  She says that she will pay eighth-and ninth-graders $100 of her own money if they turn off all electronics every Tuesday of summer vacation.  Diana Smith of Washington Latin Public Charter School says she will pony up the money for any and all seniors at her school who are brave enough to successfully complete the challenge, and prove it by delivering two signed letters from adult witnesses verifying that they accomplished their mission to qualify.
(For the kids, that’s one way to make sure it is a looooooong summer!)
(Here is where it is handy to have those twin 19-year old brothers!)
(And of course no parent would falsely sign one of those letters, would they?  I mean, where would you find a liar in Washington?)

MILLENNIALS: THANK YOU?
Australian millionaire Tim Gurner sparked a global uproar by singling out avocado toast as the reason many millennials can’t afford to buy their first homes. Well, that and “four coffees at $4 each”.  Now, the other side of the story.  A…well, a millennial has published…well….blogged a rebuttal of sorts, with some interesting things to say about her generation.  Jennifer Wright points out a Business Insider article that said millennials are single-handedly killing restaurant chains like Applebee’s and Buffalo Wild Wing by not patronizing them.  She added the following to the list: bar soap, Budweiser, and Coors.  She says her generation won’t put up with mediocre restaurants, or low-quality beer (or icky soap, apparently).  She says millennials drink less alcohol than any previous generation at their age, and are more likely to drink lots of coffee because they are aware that soft drinks aren’t good for them. She admits that people her age enjoy avocado, and that is because they have been raised to eat their vegetables.  She points out that her generation buys fewer diamonds because they are marrying later plus they can’t see the sense in spending three months pay on a sparkly hunk of rock, when they can bank that money and spend it on something nice in the future, like a car or a trip….or even a house.
(Or spend it on something REALLY expensive…like avocado toast!)
(Bar soap was fine…until you had to share it!)

SLEEP MORE, EARN MORE:
If you’d like to earn more money, science has a simple solution: sleep more. It turns out, sleep deprivation is not only bad for your health; it’s bad for your bank account.  A third of North American workers report they regularly get fewer than seven hours of sleep a night.  But check this out:  A study from Williams College and the University of California showed that people who increased their sleep by one hour a night saw their wages increase by 5% in the long-run.  Doctors already know that poor sleep leads to poor health; it’s connected to obesity, diabetes, heart disease and a host of other physical conditions. But only lately have we been learning that poor sleep is bad for your financial health, too.  Poor sleep equals mistakes, makes you grouchy, and reduces your ability to learn.  So if you aren’t getting enough sleep, you could be less likely to get that raise or promotion.
(If one extra hour of sleep equals a 5% raise, how much extra sleep do I need for a 50% raise?)
(So when I slept through all those college lectures, I was actually training for a career and didn’t even know it?)
(I’ve been practicing for this all my life!)

AND WHILE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT AVOCADOS AND MONEY:
Other things besides $19 avocado toast that Australian millionaire Tim Gurner has a problem with millennials ‘wasting’ their money on:
✓ 4 coffees at $4 each
✓ $25 movie tickets
✓ Online shopping
✓ A lot of sporting and social events
✓ Overseas holidays
✓ The latest iPhone or iPad
(So if I don’t buy any of these things, AND I get a few extra hours of sleep per night, and I’ll be rich?)
