ARIANA GRANDE WINS BIG AT ‘KIDS CHOICE AWARDS’ AS ‘FULLER HOUSE’ CAST REFERENCES CHEATING SCANDAL – (03/25/2019)
DJ Khaled hosted the 2019 Nickelodean Kids’ Choice Awards Saturday night, which broadcast live from USC’s Galen Center in L.A. The awards are voted on by fans and span a variety of categories, from movies to music social media.
Ariana Grande, who is currently on tour, shared a video thanking fans when she took home awards for best song (“thank u, next”) and favorite female artist. Chris Pratt earned the dubious honor of being slimed live after taking home the award for favorite butt-kicker for his work in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Other winners included Avengers: Infinity War, Adam Sandler and Hotel Translvania 3, Fuller House, Incredibles 2, Shawn Mendes and Zendaya.
Many celebs were in attendance, but Fuller House’s Lori Loughlin’s was notably absent. The 54-year-old is embroiled in a college admissions scandal and is not expected to return for the fifth season of Fuller House. (She is expected in federal court on April 3rd).
When Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber took to the stage to accept the award, they subtly referenced her saying a family “sticks together through the hard times.”
Here’s what they said: [Barber says: “Thank you for voting Fuller House as your Favorite Funny TV Show. You have been laughing alongside our family for four seasons and this family has a lot of heart.” Bure adds: “And where there’s a lot of heart, there’s a lot of love. And a loving family sticks together no matter what. They stick together through the hard times, they support each other, they encourage one another, they pray for each other and they stand by their side no matter how tough it gets. And a loving family that also sticks together, also celebrates the really good times.” Sweetin says: “This is one of those good times. You’ve stuck with us for 30 years and we love you all so much. We promise the fifth and final season is gonna be amazing.” (SOUNDCUE 0:47 OC: …“gonna be amazing.)]

CARDI B SUING TWO VLOGGERS FOR DEFAMATION – (03/25/2019)
Please note the following story contains language that could be considered offensive.
Cardi B is suing two vloggers who accused her of drug use and prostitution. According to TMZ, Cardi has filed a lawsuit against a vlogger named Latasha K, who posted 23 slanderous videos about her over the last 14 months. In one video, which was posted last April, Latasha said that Cardi’s baby might be born with intellectual disabilities, suggesting that she used drugs during her pregnancy.
Cardi is also suing Starmarie Ebony Jones, who posted a video back in September accusing the rapper of taking drugs including molly and cocaine, and engaging in prostitution. Jones also allegedly said, “Just a Grammy nominated prostitute running around spreading her herpes.”
In the lawsuit, Cardi said that she has never been a prostitute or used cocaine and molly. She also denied having herpes. The rapper said that she has given the vloggers a chance to retract their statements, but they’ve refused to do so. Cardi is suing for defamation and is seeking an injunction to delete the videos they posted.
On another note, according to Complex, the security crew that worked for Cardi and the Migos at last year’s Met Gala in New York is reportedly in the clear regarding potential charges stemming from an incident with an autograph hound. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that a would-be assault case from the alleged autograph hound has been closed.
CARDI B RESPONDS TO ‘OKURRR’ TRADEMARK CRITICISM
In other news, Cardi has responded to criticism she received after reports surfaced that she is trademarking her catchphrase, “Okurrr.” She said in a video posted to Instagram, “Wait, wait, wait… So you h*es is mad because I trademark ‘Okurrr?’ Let me tell you something, every single time I go to a corporate meeting these folks be like, ‘I can’t wait to hear you say okurrr.’ Every time I go to a TV show… ‘Hey, hey can you teach me how to say okurrr?’ Every time I go do a commercial, ‘Hey can you finish it off with okurrr?’ You think I ain’t gonna profit off this s***? B**** white folks do it all the motha f***in time. You wanna be mad at me because I wanna get some motha f***in money? While I’m still here I’m gonna secure all the f***ing bags.”
She added, “Let me give y’all a secret too. It’s 2019 b****es. It’s a lot of ways to get rich. Y’all just gotta get y’all selves some business, and stop minding motha f***ing others. I’m a get this bag while I’m here h*.”
KATE BECKINSALE SCRUBS INSTAGRAM AMID PETE DAVIDSON ROMANCE – (03/25/2019)
And …. refresh! Amid a budding romance with Pete Davidson, 25, which has turned a white-hot spotlight her way, Kate Beckinsale, 45, has scrubbed her Instagram. No word on why she purged her account, but her account is up and her 2.8 million+ count of followers is still there.
She and Davidson have gotten a ton of attention—much of it bemused—over their 20-year-age gap, and Davidson acknowledged the implicit sexism of the sitch in a recent SNL bit on “Weekend Update,” pointing out that dozens of male actors date much-younger female stars, and no one raises a brow to that. She has also poked fun at some of her detractors on social media.
Recently, Beckinsale introduced her mother to Davidson, and friends have said they’re serious.
