Britney Spears does literal cartwheels after big win in her conservatorship case
Britney Spears celebrated a major win in her ongoing battle to end her conservatorship on Wednesday by — what else? — "horseback riding and doing cartwheels." Earlier in the day, Spears was granted the right to hire her own attorney, and afterward she shared a looping video of herself riding a horse and doing a dizzying number of cartwheels down a strip of grass near a road. Spears set the video to "Black Horse and a Cherry Tree." "I feel GRATITUDE and BLESSED!!!!" she raved. "Thank you to my fans who are supporting me ... You have no idea what it means to me [to] be supported by such awesome fans!!!! God bless you all!!!!!"
Mila Kunis won't let Ashton Kutcher shoot himself into space
Some people don't have a healthy respect for the terrifying, lifeless infinitude of outer space, and it shows. Ashton Kutcher revealed that he was planning to be on the next Virgin Galactic flight but ultimately sold his ticket after his wife, Mila Kunis, talked some sense into him. "When I got married and had kids, my wife basically encouraged that it was not a smart family decision to be heading into space when we have young children, so I ended up selling my ticket back to Virgin Galactic," Kutcher, 43, told Cheddar News. "I was supposed to be on the next flight, but I will not be on the next flight." If it's thrills that Kutcher wants, after all, there's always the ocean.
Did Kristen Stewart secretly get married?
While everyone was distracted by Kourney Kardashian and Travis Barker maybe getting secretly engaged in Las Vegas, an actually important ring watch was taking place at LAX. Kristen Stewart, who in 2019 said she couldn't "f--king wait" to marry her screenwriter girlfriend, Dylan Meyer, maybe secretly married her screenwriter girlfriend, as evidenced by paparazzi photos taken in the terminal. The 31-year-old actress and her partner "both wore what appeared to be wedding rings on their fingers as they made their way through the American airport with their hand luggage," The Mirror reports. Stewart and Meyer have been official since October 2019, and engagement rumors have quietly circulated for years — but the ring sighting definitely gives us a new couple to obsessively speculate about.
Chrissy Teigen is part of the 'cancel club'
The first rule of cancel club is you do talk about cancel club, according to Chrissy Teigen. The model penned an Instagram post Wednesday admitting she feels like "utter s---t" after her cyberbullying scandal, while describing the experience of being part of what she dubbed "cancel club." Teigen previously apologized for being a "troll" and an "a--hole" in the past, and she wrote Wednesday that "cancel club is a fascinating thing and I have learned a whollllle lot," adding, "If you or someone you know has also been cancelled please let me know if there is a cancel club reunion because I could use some time off my couch." If there was, wouldn't it just get canceled?
Tony Soprano almost joined The Office
Dunder Mifflin very nearly swapped out Michael Scott for Tony Soprano. The Sopranos stars Michael Imperioli and Steve Schirripa claimed on a recent podcast that James Gandolfini was in talks to replace Steve Carell on The Office after Carell left the show, but HBO "paid him $3 million not to do it." This would have been after The Sopranos ended, but before The Office brought in James Spader. Gandolfini apparently came this close to taking the gig, but the $3 million payday had to do with the fact that he had a deal with HBO to develop The Night Of at the time. Now that's the life: getting paid $3 million to not do a job
