Celebrity Scoops…updated Tuesday, 7.25.17

Got a case of the Discovery Channel “Shark Week” blues? You’re not the only one. Viewers are miffed after the incredible hype about Michael Phelps racing against a great white, only to find out it was computer simulated. Here’s what it all came down to:


OK, did you really expect him to be in the wide open waters racing in a perfectly straight lane with a great white? And sure, he’s a 28-time Olympic medalist, but did you really expect him to win? Yes, we rooted and then deflated, as he lost be a lousy 2 seconds. The upside is he was close, and there are more shows to soak up with non-computer generated video this week.

Daniel Craig martini BondOn an even more scintillating note…Bond is back baby! But we’re still not certain it’s Daniel Craig playing the sensationalized spy. The next installment is hitting theaters in November 2019, but a cryptic tweet merely read, “James Bond will return to US cinemas on November 8, 2019 with a traditional earlier release in the UK and the rest of the world.” Despite saying back in 2015 to Spectre that he would rather “slash his wrists” than return to the role, Then it was reported that Craig was “coming round” to the concept of starring in a fifth installment and the Mirror declared that producer Barbara Broccoli had secured the 49-year-old hunk for the next 007 film. We can only hope we get one more shirtless scene of the gun-toting stud spy saving the world again!

Justin Bieber Story 4th of July weekend 2016What’s with these millionaires whining about their stressful jobs? First Craig tried to bail as Bond and now the Biebs has bagged 14 tour dates. His Purpose world tour doesn’t have much of one anymore, but Justin Bieber needed some time off. After two years of being on the road, he said he’s looking forward to “Just resting, getting some relaxation. We’re gonna ride some bikes.” while near the beach in Santa Monica yesterday. Seriously, ride your darn bike off the clock!

Get cranking today! It’s only Tuesday – no excuses. Go be productive – we all have to make up for the tax loss of Bieber bailing on his shows.
