What You May Have Missed

wymhm3

Perhaps you’ve been busy at a summer internship or have been without Wifi for a week and are wondering what’s happening in Hollywood…no worries! When it comes to celebrity news, I’m always on top.  So if you need something to talk about at your next family BBQ that doesn’t involve when you’re getting married or what you’re majoring in, bring up the latest news in the entertainment industry.  Counter the question, “When are you having kids?” with, “I don’t know, Grandma, but Jaime King just had a baby and Taylor Swift is its godmother!”  Now grab a drink, sit back, and relax, as you enjoy my latest installment of “What You May Have Missed.”
