Walt Disney


Travis Kelce made headlines this week when he revealed on his podcast that he’s living the happiest life he’s ever lived. Here is what we know. Since being linked with Taylor Swift, Travis’ income and business opportunities, including endorsement deals, have increased exponentially. He’s making money hand over fist and combined with the perks of dating Taylor it’s easy to see why he claims he’s living his “best life.” Our source predicts that Travis and Taylor will be engaged before the end of the summer if not sooner.

Florida governor Ron DeSantis and the Walt Disney Company seemed to bury the hatchet after an ongoing battle. While much of this has to do with the fact that Ron is no longer running for president and doesn’t feel the need to generate headlines with outlandish lawsuits, we’re also hearing his wife, Casey was the one who urged him to make peace with the entertainment giant. Here’s why… Casey loves Disney World! It’s where she and Ron got married so she truly finds it one of the happiest places on earth.  She realized she couldn’t be seen there when Ron was at war with Disney but now that the fight is over she plans on being there a lot and renewed her annual pass.

Britney Spears got people talking this week when she posted a since deleted Instagram video of her and her ex-husband Sam Asghari. According to our source, there’s a reason for the sentimental post. The duo haven’t been in contact since splitting up but they’ve recently begun talking again. While it’s too soon to call it a reconciliation, we’re hearing that it’s certainly not out of the question as Brit misses having Sam around. Stay tuned as we will share more details as we hear them.

Gypsy Lee Blanchard made headlines when she announced her short-lived prison marriage to Ryan Anderson was over. No sooner did she announce the split than she was seen hanging out with her ex fiancé, Ken Urker. Here’s what we know: Gypsy enjoys being in the spotlight and is secretly working on a pilot for a reality series based on her life after prison. Her husband Ryan wasn’t so keen on the idea and VERY uncomfortable in front of the camera, but her ex-fiancé Ken also seems to relish being in the spotlight. As of now, Gypsy and Ken are claiming they’re just friends, but we’re hearing a romance is percolating to go along with the planned reality show.

And finally, Donald Trump made headlines once again (surprise surprise!) after posting a $175 cash million bond in his appeal of his $400+ million civil judgment in New York City.  We are hearing that Donald is working hard to come up with money making plans to pay off the debt since he had to borrow the cash. Our source says that in addition to hawking $60 Bibles, Donald is actively working behind the scenes to put his name on everything from fragrances to shampoo. He’s working every angle to make a buck.


This comes from a Disney insider, and although it’s more business gossip than celebrity gossip, we feel compelled to share it. Now that Disney is suing Florida governor and likely presidential candidate Ron DeSantis, the entertainment conglomerate has a drastic plan if they don’t prevail: they’re closing Disney World and cutting all ties with Florida! The insider explained that the “nuclear option” is already being discussed behind very closed doors at corporate headquarters in Burbank, and feelers are already being put out to land developers to appraise the 25,000 acres owned by the amusement park. Keep in mind, OTHER states would be THRILLED to welcome Disney. While my insider stresses it’s a long shot, they also insist that if DeSantis doesn’t back down they are prepared to call it a day. This would likely destroy Florida’s economy since Disney is the state’s largest employer and bring in billions of tourism dollars.

We love Walt Disney, but it’s sad to read this letter written by his production company to a woman seeking a job in 1938. Sexism was an every day thing and women didn’t stand a chance of having the opportunities men had. It was taken for granted that females were to be treated differently, and if it weren’t for people like Gloria Steinem, THINGS WOULD STILL BE THE SAME. Women continue to be paid LESS than men, gay or straight, for the same job, and we have yet to elect a female president, so the struggle is FAR from over.


Annette Funicello has died and she represented and era of innocence that won’t be seen again. When she became a Mousketeer on The Mickey Mouse Club, she was an immediate hit and got ten times the fan mail of other kids on the show. Eventually, Annette graduated to the teenage Beach Party movies and Walt Disney asked her NOT to wear bikinis. She never did. Annette adored Walt and always had good things to say about him. She’s been suffering with MS for the last twenty years and out of the limelight, but we will miss her.


Walt Disney has always been one of our heroes, and who better to play him in a movie than Tom Hanks? That explains why Tom has been promoting “Cloud Atlas” with that peculiar mustache. “Saving Mr Banks” is the story of Walt’s 20 year pursuit of the film rights to author PL Travers’ (played by Emma Thompson) novel “Mary Poppins.” Disney’s daughters adored the book and he promised to turn it into a movie. He developed an interesting relationship with Travers through the years of negotiation. We look forward to seeing vintage Disneyland. (Above are some photos from scenes filmed at Disneyland.)

We can’t figure out WHY, but a French graphic artist created this movie poster and released it on the internet. Many people got very excited at the prospect of a movie biography of Walt Disney starring Ryan Gosling, who got HIS start on The Mickey Mouse Club. But it’s NOT REAL! According to the Hollywood Reporter, it’s a fake, and no such movie is even in the works. The whole episode was disappointing and made us realize HOW MUCH we would LOVE to see a movie about Walt Disney. Maybe Ryan should be encouraged to buy the rights to Uncle Walt’s life story!


We’ve always had a thing for Walt Disney and we’re sorry to say that one of his most popular original Mousketeers has died – Cheryl Holdridge. (she’s right behind Walt in the photo) Unlike many child stars, she went on to have an exciting and glamorous adult life. She married Barbara Hutton’s playboy son Lance Reventlow, who died in a auto racing crash, and her second husband was a Danish count. She kept her good looks and went to many Disney reunions through the years. Cheryl died of lung cancer.
