PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MIGHT POP UP AT THE OSCARS

Will they or won’t they? That’s the question Hollywood insiders are asking themselves now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are secretly being wooed to become presenters at the upcoming Academy Awards! Now that they’ve gone Hollywood, the former royal couple have been offered a chance to present an Oscar at the upcoming ceremony. The invite is being kept a secret since they haven’t agreed to appear, but our knowledgable source reveals it could very well happen since the pair are already planning to attend the coveted after parties, including the ones hosted by Vanity Fair and Netflix. The details are still being sorted out, but if they agree the plan is for them to present either the award for best foreign film or best documentary.

JAMIE LEE CURTIS IS URGING OSCAR NOMINEES AND WINNERS TO DONATE THEIR GOWNS TO CHARITY

Jamie Lee Curtis is on a roll when it comes to raising money for a good cause. As we previously revealed, her charity My Hand In Yours is raking in the dough for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles after her Oscar win. Now she’s planning to auction off the custom Dolce & Gabbana gown she wore when she won the Academy Award, with all proceeds benefiting the charity. ALSO – she’s leaning on her fellow nominees and winners (like her EEAAO co-star, Michelle Yeoh) to donate THEIR Oscar outfits. Her goal is to raise another million for the charity!

ELIZABETH OLSEN CHOSE GIVENCHY OVER THE ROW FOR OSCARS

Elizabeth Olsen opted to wear a glittery Givenchy gown to the Academy Awards even though her twin sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen offered to give her something from their label, The Row. Elizabeth tries to flaunt items from her sisters’ collection as often as she can, but she wanted something sparkly for the Oscars and The Row’s clothes are minimalist. Of course, the twins were disappointed that Elizabeth didn’t wear one of their designs because Elizabeth was a presenter, and the publicity would have been priceless. To make it up to them, Elizabeth promised to wear something from The Row if she’s ever nominated for a big award, like an Oscar, Emmy or Golden Globe.

WHY DID RIHANNA OPT OUT OF OSCAR NOMINEE EVENT?

What do Rihanna and Jamie Lee Curtis have in common? They’re both currently nominated for Oscars and they’re both skipping the prestigious nominees dinner. While Jamie Lee passed on the event because it would go past her 9pm bedtime, Rihanna said thanks but no thanks for an entirely different reason. She skipped the event because she wasn’t allowed to bring her baby daddy, ASAP Rocky. The annual dinner has a strict NO plus-ones policy because they want nominees to get to know each other. Rihanna understood the rules, but  for SOME reason she couldn’t bear to go alone…

TIFFANY HADDISH IS LOOKING FOR A STAND-UP GUY

Have to admit we were HUGELY disappointed in Tiffany Haddish when we heard about her reaction to Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars. Tiffany swooned that the slap was “the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen!” She went on to explain that she was thrilled to see a Black man stand up for his wife and she was happy to know “There are still men out there who CARE about their women.” We totally disagreed with her point of view, but it led us to start thinking about the men in her life. Maybe she never had a guy who stood up for her! Keep in mind, she had split with her quarantine partner Common shortly before the Oscars and she emphasized that they did NOT break up because of (that old stand-by) “conflicting schedules.” We’re guessing Common just was not a stand-up guy for her. Tiffany also talks about her adventures in real estate in this month’s Cosmopolitan…

TIFFANY HADDISH ROMANTICIZED THE SLAP

It’s a good thing Tiffany Haddish has this cute new blonde look because it takes people’s minds off her unfortunate remarks after The Slap. Tiffany was one of the FIRST people to talk about Will Smith’s Oscar behavior immediately after it happened, and her reaction to the situation was VERY different than most reasonable people. Tiffany swooned “It was a beautiful moment – – a Black man stood up for his wife! It meant so much to me to think there are still men out there who care about their women- that’s what a husband is supposed to do, right?” We really like Tiffany, but she was WRONG in every way. Can’t help but wonder if since then, Tiffany has changed her mind at all…

THE OSCAR SLAP IS NOW A WORK OF ART

THAT didn’t take long! An artist in Berlin was SO taken with Will Smith slapping Chris Rock on the Oscars that he created a mural of the event in the art installation area of Mauerpark in the city. Park visitors are loving the selfie opportunities…

WHAT IF WILL SMITH HAD BEEN FORCED TO LEAVE THE OSCARS?

We just heard that after THE SLAP, Will Smith WAS asked by the Academy to leave the ceremony and he REFUSED! Of course this makes Smith’s egotistical behavior look even WORSE, and hopefully the Academy will be more likely to punish him in some way. Just imagine what MIGHT have happened if security guards had INSISTED that Smith leave, and attempted to “walk” him out forcefully! Smith would struggle and Denzel Washington would probably have leapt into the fray to try and calm things down. Tuxedoes notwithstanding, other hot-headed actors would have jumped at the chance to defend whatever side they were on. It could have degenerated into quite a melee (although many viewers would have loved it) so give the Academy a break. It’s so nice to hear that after THE SLAP, Chris Rock’s standup tour tickets started selling like crazy – this will be quite profitable for him.

JADA PINKETT: “THERE’S A TIME FOR HEALING AND I’M HERE FOR IT”

Just as we predicted, Jada Pinkett is NOT taking sides on the Will Smith debacle. She has obviously been warned by her “people” that she can’t win- whether she backs up her husband or apologizes for him- people will criticize her. We had hoped that Jada was too independent to hold back her real feelings, but her “diplomatic” and absurdly vague statement posted on Instagram has succeeded in saying absolutely NOTHING. THIS is the best she can do?

JADA PINKETT DOESN’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT

What we REALLY want to know is how did Jada Pinkett feel about her husband Will’s behavior at the Oscars! She has kept conspicuously quiet about the issue. Do you suppose she felt GRATEFUL that Will “chivalrously” defended her against Chris Rock’s remarks? Keep in mind, being compared to Demi Moore in G.I.Jane is HARDLY an insult. Certainly Will violently overreacted, but did Jada secretly appreciate it? Or was she appalled and HUMILIATED? Jada happened to look fabulous on Oscar night and Will’s behavior pulled attention away from her and everyone else. We’ve heard about their marriage problems – will this help or hurt their relationship? Jada will be criticized either way – whether she supports Will’s behavior or condones it – so we think she will NOT comment. Meanwhile, we don’t think Chris Rock did anything wrong and he carried on like a trouper. We also think Will’s “people” forced him to make that apology today to avoid getting kicked out of the Academy.
