You’re not always going to be happy all of the time and that’s okay.”

The Globe says George Clooney is allegedly glad to be out of the house and filming a new movie. A source tells the magazine, “He’s ready to break free after being grounded for so long. George has given up so much to please Amal. Everything from riding motorcycles to drinking with his buddies. Now, the fear is he could slip back into those bad habits without her watching him like a hawk. It’s raising eyebrows given that Lake Como was George’s party place in his bachelor days. Amal is being understanding or trying to be, but her place right now is in L.A. with the twins, not gallivanting around the world. The reality is George and Amal could go weeks if not months on their own, and that’ll put them back in the bad place that’s caused a lot of tension.''

It was like getting kicked when you’re down. They just believe that a lot of people would be turned off by her being a part of it and not tune in. It’s already showing up in Ellen’s ratings. And it’s just not a good look for these guys to be seen publicly embracing somebody who has been accused of being abusive to her staff. Jen was by far the closest to Ellen among any of them. So she was the one to deliver the news. Ellen understood that Jen and the others had no choice. But it didn’t make it any easier for her to take.''

W magazine says Britney Spears has no plans to do a tell-all interview with Oprah. A source tells US Weekly Magazine, “The report about Britney considering a tell-all is greatly exaggerated and essentially giving false hope to the fans who tweeted calls for it after the Harry and Meghan interview.

That probably gave me stage fright, which I’ve been living with since.’’
