Hey, there! It’s time for more pop culture news edition thirty-five. Time to look out for, and at some of the sillier stories that cropped up on feeds this week. Because it’s Friday, and that’s what tradition around here asks.
Ok, so there’s (again) just not a lot I found personally interesting or funny. There’s that one dominant celeb story in the pop culture space right now, and honestly, I just haven’t paid too close attention to it. I’ve seen two videos on the two opposing sides, and snippets on Instagram, but beyond that, I’m just not fully invested. That said, we’ll see if we can find a couple other stories to take up our blank page space, shall we?
POP CULTURE NEWS EDITION THIRTY-FIVE
1: 17 YEARS LATER
On this week in 2005, superstar Carrie Underwood won American Idol. According to articles, Underwood has released seven albums that are certified Platinum or Multi-Platinum by the RIAA. In June, she will release her ninth called “Diamonds and Rhinestones,” an album that she’s already released a handful of songs on, one of which is ‘Ghost Story,’ which I have heard. Underwood, on Instagram, also shared her journal entry of that night recalling her
2: DEPP V. HEARD
Speaking of that earlier mention above, Kate Moss took the stand in the Depp v Heard trial (after Heard herself opened the door to hearing this testimony) and reportedly she denies he ever pushed her down the stairs. Amber has, reportedly, also been caught in more than one fib during testimony. Again, I just haven’t been following this trial. Sure I see things in video content, but overall, I don’t follow it. I do find it interesting that some people criticize Amber Heard, you’re saying Johnny Depp has no fault. Um, nope. That’s not true at all. There’s wrongdoing on both sides, of this I don’t doubt. Still doesn’t mean Amber’s claims are true. (Plus, can we also acknowledge that some of Amber’s testimony was just… off all the way around?)
Are you following this and if so, I’m genuinely curious, what’s your take?
3: HALLMARK BRINGS DEBUT NOVEL TO SCREEN
Hallmark is set to begin production on Groundswell, a novel from Food Network host Katie Lee Biegel. The film is going to follow a chef, Emma who leaves Atlanta who travels to Hawaii where she meets a “reclusive surfer.” The film is, I believe set to debut on their ‘drama’ network which is Hallmark Movies & Mysteries and could potentially air later this year.
4: IS THERE MORE ADVENTURE IN THE RED FERRARI?
Could that slick red Ferrari have another case in it? Rumor, according to one report, has it that an exec at Universal TV just may be shopping around the show. IF this is true, do you think someone else could pick up the show? Comment below!
The show, based on what little I do know, ends in a place that would open doors to all sorts of new stories and likely back-and-forth complications. I haven’t seen the full just aired (and now last) season yet, but I still plan to watch it regardless.
- The super popular and years in the making sequel for Top Gun (which I’ve never seen – should I?) is roaring to early success. Is it something you’re exciting to see?
- According to one (semi unreliable) source, Hallmark may not be making more installments in franchise like Chronicle Mysteries, Crossword Mysteries or Mystery 101 (BIG thumbs down), what do you think about this? Have you heard this or do you care?
- Kelly Stables, Billy Zane and James Maslow are set to star in a new romance called Holiday Twist. The story follows a CEO who is a “Grinch” and in order to help heal her past, she receives help from a mall Santa. No information yet on where it’ll air, but it could be cute.
- Charlotte Spencer won’t return for season three of the often controversial (because of stories, character) PBS drama Sanditon.
- Speaking of PBS, they will also end Endeavour after nearly ten years. Its ninth season is currently filming and will be its last.
- Shareholders are suing Elon Musk over “sowing confusion” according to one headline that further reads to “drive down price.” The suit is a class action lawsuit that also “revisits” that Musk didn’t disclose his stock claim of nearly 10%.
- The fifth Indiana Jones film will finally release in June 2023, so basically a year from now. There’s no word on the plot yet, but it does feature co-stars in some such as Antonia Banderas, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Thomas Kretschmann and Toby Jones.
