The Evil Is Defeated: Mike Richards Out As 'Jeopardy!' and 'Wheel of Fortune' EP

Effective immediately, Mike Richards will no longer serve as executive producer on Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune; Embassy Row's Michael Davies will step in on an interim basis. Staff were informed of the change this morning in a note from Suzanne Prete, Sony's EVP of Business & Strategy for the two shows:

Dear Team,

I’m writing to let you know that Mike will no longer be serving as EP of Wheel and Jeopardy! effective immediately.  We had hoped that when Mike stepped down from the host position at Jeopardy! it would have minimized the disruption and internal difficulties we have all experienced these last few weeks. That clearly has not happened.

Michael Davies from Embassy Row has agreed to help with production on an interim basis until further notice. Michael and I will work together with all of you in the weeks ahead to ensure that production remains on schedule and we do not miss a beat as we head into the new season.

I know this has been a challenging time for the entire team, and I want to thank you all for your cooperation and professionalism over these last few weeks. As Ravi mentioned last week, I will be more involved in the day-to-day on our shows moving forward and I am looking forward to working closely with all of you.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything.

Someone's friend on a bike attended a test screening of Robert Pattinson's The Batman.

"Leftist" streamer Hasan Piker faced criticism for buying a $2.7M home

"Lefitst" pundit, Hasan Piker has come under fire for buying a home in West Hollywood (during a pandmeic in which millions of Americans have and currently struggle to pay for rent and food) for 2.7 million dollars.

When the self proclaimed socialist was asked about it, he responded "i do donate, some public most not. however this is a fucking brain dead take that keeps dumbasses thinking that bill gates is a good guy btw."

And followed up with saying that "...but the necessity of charity is an indication of systemic failure. it’s still useful to help out mutual aid orgs in the short term but that’s not how you solve structural problems. the rich also use it as a tax shelter"

Ah yes.

Translation: Charity is an indication of systemic failure and I will NOT support it to my full capabilites and instead will buy a home in West Hollywood where gentrification has overtaken every aspect of this neighborhood. Take that!

Hasan is a popular Twitch streamer who's peak came when he hosted a game of Among Us with AOC and Ilhan Omar. His primary audience is socially aware teens and 20 something year olds and according to Insider "He is also helping to revolutionize left-wing political punditry in the process."

By that, I think they mean he's another well off nepotism 30 something year old (his uncle is noted sexist and racist cofounder of The Young Terks Cenk Uygur) that has too much money and is pretending he cares about the class struggle for for more views. Which... not sure what's revolutionaly about that.

Seriously, he has too much money. According to TwitchTracker, Hasan has 51,876 active subs and at about 5 bucks per subs, his channel brings in roughly 259,380 a month (minus what Twitch takes and taxes and shit BUT not counting Youtube revinue, sponsorships or donations).

New Books Hitting Shelves This Week

The Witch Haven

In 1911 New York City, seventeen-year-old Frances Hallowell spends her days as a seamstress, mourning the mysterious death of her brother months prior. Everything changes when she’s attacked and a man ends up dead at her feet—her scissors in his neck, and she can’t explain how they got there.

Before she can be condemned as a murderess, two cape-wearing nurses arrive to inform her she is deathly ill and ordered to report to Haxahaven Sanitarium. But Frances finds Haxahaven isn’t a sanitarium at all: it’s a school for witches. Within Haxahaven’s glittering walls, Frances finds the sisterhood she craves, but the headmistress warns Frances that magic is dangerous. Frances has no interest in the small, safe magic of her school, and is instead enchanted by Finn, a boy with magic himself who appears in her dreams and tells her he can teach her all she’s been craving to learn, lessons that may bring her closer to discovering what truly happened to her brother.

Frances’s newfound power attracts the attention of the leader of an ancient order who yearns for magical control of Manhattan. And who will stop at nothing to have Frances by his side. Frances must ultimately choose what matters more, justice for her murdered brother and her growing feelings for Finn, or the safety of her city and fellow witches. What price would she pay for power, and what if the truth is more terrible than she ever imagined?

Adam Levine Defends Olivia Rodrigo Amid Plagiarism Claims

Adam Levine is coming to Liv’s defense over recent plagiarism claims.

“There’s all this drama about Olivia Rodrigo,” Levine said on his Instagram story. “Look, these are tricky things, and anyone who’s ever written a song knows that sometimes you rip something off inadvertently, and it makes it to tape, and then it gets released, and then there’s a lawsuit.

“It’s a natural thing for it to happen, and sometimes it gets ugly, and sometimes it’s warranted that people take legal action. Sometimes it’s not warranted that people take legal action, and ... the gray area has reared its ugly head these days.”

Levine then cited the 2015 case that saw the estate of Marvin Gaye win more than $7.3 million in a copyright infringement suit against Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke, comparing their hit single, “Blurred Lines,” to Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up.”

“Without giving an opinion on ... how that one turned out, I do think that we [could] probably meet this with a little more compassion and understanding,” Levine continued.

“All this calling out and shit, it’s like, music is a creative thing, and I just hate to see it crushed ... When you take someone who’s a newer artist, and she’s doing things that emulate the ones from generations removed, I don’t know how bad that is. I think it’s kind of a cool thing to introduce the whole generation of young people to different musical ideas. ... That’s just my opinion.”

“I just hate to see it become this huge thing where people get really aggressive ... maybe I’m just not as territorial about that kind of stuff. I’m almost flattered when people rip me off, but I’m sure I’ve ripped people off too.”


21 Savage Speaks on Owning His Masters

21 Savage spoke about the importance of artists owning their masters. 

“I had a platinum album before I signed my [first] deal. I own my masters right now. Every song you’ve ever heard, I own it. I got a 70/30 split with my label. I make more money off my album sales than I do off touring. For a lot of rappers, most of their money comes from touring.”

Safaree Rejects Deadbeat Dad Claims

Safaree Samuels has seemingly been uncomfortable with being dubbed a deadbeat dad. 
He took to Twitter to clarify any accusations that he is neglectful to his two children.
Safaree and Erica Mena recently welcomed their son and they also share a daughter, Safire.
Erica has alleged that Safaree was off partying with other women while their newborn was in the NICU.

"I’m sick of this fake ass narrative too like I’m a dead beat. I don’t wAnt a Treat for being with my kids but don’t act like I’m not with my kids becuz y’all don’t see it.My kids live in a mansion and that’s because of me! I’m with them all the time!"

"I do more than a lot of y’all women baby daddies who go months and weeks without seeing or doing anything for they kids!! Dumb asses! Ima go back to watching cloud babies."

Safaree is unamused by the criticism and added that his mortgage is seven figures so if the opinions of others aren't paying his bills, he isn't interested in hearing them.


Reese Witherspoon Says She Didn't Have a 'Lot of Support' as a First-Time Mom

Reese Witherspoon was just 23 years old when she became a wife and a mother in a very short span.
She learned just how much that can be to take on, especially if it feels like you're taking it on alone.
She was fortunate to be in a position in her life to be able to take time off from work after giving birth.
Reese is indicating she did and was able to survive. But that certainly doesn't mean it's easy to do.
In those early months where sleep can begin to feel like a forgotten dream even when there are multiple parents juggling those nonstop duties.

"I did not have a lot of support with my first baby and I learned really early, like this is not going to work. I tried to muscle through for five months with Ava, just not sleeping and I became delirious. Parenthood is not a one-person job. I would even say it's not a two-person job."

Britney Spears’ Attorney Accuses Father of Extorting $2 Million to Step Down from Conservatorship

Britney Spears’ lawyer is keeping up his blistering attacks on her father, accusing Jamie Spears of trying to “extort” $2 million in payments in exchange for stepping down from her conservatorship.

Earlier this month, Jamie Spears agreed that it would be best for him step down from the conservatorship, saying he did not want a public fight with his daughter. However, he did not provide a timetable for his resignation, and appeared to open the door to a negotiated resolution.

Mathew Rosengart argued that her father is seeking to use his leverage to compel his daughter’s estate to pay $1.3 million in attorneys’ fees, $500,000 to Spears’ former management company, as well as additional payments to Jamie Spears himself.

“The status quo is no longer tolerable, and Britney Spears will not be extorted,” Rosengart wrote. “Mr. Spears’s blatant attempt to barter suspension and removal in exchange for approximately $2 million in payments, on top of the millions already reaped from Ms. Spears’s estate by Mr. Spears and his associates, is a non-starter.”

Rosengart had earlier accused Jamie Spears of enriching himself at the expense of his daughter’s estate, and of “dissipating” her fortune. Jamie Spears has denied wrongdoing and defended his handling of her financial affairs.

The next court hearing is set for September 9th.
