BOSSIP Holiday Movie Guide: Our Chatty Champs Talk ‘King Richard’ And ‘The Christmas Story’

With the holidays ahead and family friendly entertainment on our minds, we gathered up our gang of film fanatics, including BOSSIP Sr. Content Director Janeé Bolden and comedians Stephon Bishop and Courtney Bledsoe to watch ‘King Richard‘ and the 1983 holiday classic ‘The Christmas Story.’ King Richard follows the journey of Richard Williams, an undeterred father, instrumental in raising two of the most extraordinarily gifted athletes of all time, Venus and Serena Williams!

Richard has a plan that will take Venus and Serena Williams from the streets of Compton, California to the global stage as legendary icons. This epic biographical drama film was directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green and stars Will Smith as King Richard, Aunjanue Ellis as Oracene “Brandy” Price and Saniyya Sidney and Demi Singleton as the young Williams sisters. This true story of black excellence will inspire the world and is an incredibly warm and motivating watch for the whole family.

In addition to ‘King Richard,’ our in-house movie critics also took a closer look at longtime Christmas classic, ‘The Christmas Story.’ Most folks have seen the film multiple times and likely treasure familiar moments, like how young Ralphie wanted only one thing that Christmas: a Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-shot Range Model air rifle or how his group of friends have a horrifying scare after Flick accepts a “triple dog dare” from Schwartz to stick his tongue onto the school flagpole. When his tongue freezes onto the pole he’s stuck out in the elements until assistance arrives from the local police and fire department to free him. Those are just a few of the memorable scenes from the film.

‘King Richard’ is currently in theaters and on HBO Max. ‘The Christmas Story’ is now available on Hulu, HBO Max, and Sling TV.

Spice Girls ‘to reunite at Brooklyn Beckham’s wedding’

The Spice Girls are set to be reunited at Brooklyn Beckham‘s wedding.

The 22-year-old star is poised to marry actress Nicola Peltz in Florida in April, and Victoria Beckham has invited her former bandmates – Mel B, Melanie C, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner – to the lavish event.

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: “It was a lovely invitation and the girls are all excited to attend.

“It will be the first time they have all been together socially for some time, so they are looking forward to the chance to really catch up.

“While Nicola has opted to wear two Valentino dresses on the big day, they will have their pick of Victoria Beckham dresses if they like.”

Last Year, Melanie C revealed that the Spice Girls are “constantly” talking about touring again.

The iconic pop group reunited for a series of shows in 2019, and Melanie admitted she’s keen for another reunion to take place in the coming years.

She shared: “This has to happen. We talk about it constantly. We did the shows in 2019, the plan was to continue on.

“Of course, the world has been in such turmoil, but the plan beyond this is to get out there when it’s safe, when we can do it. What’s tough is there’s so many artists that want to get out there, and there’s only so many venues, so we’re all kind of queuing up going, ‘I want to! I want to!’”

Melanie starred alongside Mel B, Emma and Geri for the comeback shows in 2019.

And the pop star revealed she’s also been “chipping away” at Victoria to join them on stage, after she previously opted out of the reunion tour.

She said: “We would love to have her back onstage. In all honesty, I think it’s gonna happen. At some point, I think Posh Spice will be back onstage.”

Khloe Kardashian Stuns In Tight Blue Dress For Gorgeous Pics After Tristan’s Scandal

Tristan Thompson, who? Khloe Kardashian looked unbothered by her ex’s latest public scandal as she posed for a new series of photos on Instagram on Jan. 23.

Khloe Kardashian served up quite a look to end her Sunday this week! On Jan. 23, the reality star took to Instagram to share a new gallery of photos of herself, where came to slay in a skintight, baby blue dress. The long-sleeved ensemble hugs every inch of Khloe’s figure, and she paired the look with some snakeskin booties and her blonde hair in curls, pulled back into a tight ponytail. Khloe is seated on Louis Vuitton luggage and wearing sunglasses in one photo, as well. “Material Girl,” she captioned the set of images.

For the second half of the pics, she steps outside and takes the sunglasses off to pose with the sunlight in the background. These pics show just the top half of Khloe’s body, with her silver chain necklace also on full display. Her glam is also more visible in the last three pics, with dramatic eyelashes and a light pink lip to complete the look.

Khloe appears to be moving on from the latest drama surrounding her ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, who is also the father of her daughter, True Thompson, 3. Khloe got back together with Tristan at the beginning of 2021, nearly two years after he cheated on her by kissing Jordyn Woods at a party. However, they split just months later. Although they were co-parenting nicely for most of 2021, things fell apart at the end of the year when news broke that Tristan had allegedly fathered a child with another woman, Maralee Nichols.

The baby was born in December, and in January, a paternity test confirmed that Tristan was the baby’s father. In court documents, Tristan confirmed that he had an affair with Maralee in March, which is when he was still dating Khloe. Maralee also produced evidence to reveal that her relationship with Tristan had actually gone on for several months before the March hookup, as well.

Khloe has not publicly commented on the situation. However, after all of Tristan’s past indiscretions, she has always maintained that she wants the basketball player to be in True’s life. It’s unclear if the situation will be address on the Kardashian family’s upcoming Hulu show, which is set to premiere sometime this year.

Emma Roberts’ ex-boyfriend Garrett Hedlund arrested for public intoxication

Garrett Hedlund Audio Up Holiday Gala

Emma Roberts’ ex-boyfriend and Friday Night Lights star Garrett Hedlund was reportedly arrested for public intoxication over the weekend.

According to Page Six, the 37-year-old actor was arrested in Tennessee on Saturday night for public intoxication after going out to the bars and having a little too much fun.

The actor, who played Don Billingsley in the 2004 football film, was taken into custody by Franklin County police and had a bail set at $2,100 for the misdemeanor. Hedlund has reportedly not yet posted bail since being booked, and is still in police custody.

This is just the latest incident the actor and model has been involved in, and his arrest came only one day after news broke that he and Roberts split up a few weeks ago after trying but failing to make it work.

“It’s sad, and they are trying their best to co-parent. It’s been hard,” an insider close to the former couple recently spilled regarding the pair and their 1-year-old son, Rhodes.

Hedlund was also recently sued for negligence following an incident in 2020 in which he allegedly crashed his car in a head-on collision after falling asleep while driving in Los Angeles.

The court documents claim that Hedlund “passed out behind the wheel of his vehicle and ran a solid red-light at a high rate of speed” before colliding into another vehicle containing a driver and their passenger.

Marina Venegas and daughter Jennifer Castillo, the two individuals suing the actor, allege in the court documents that they “knew [Hedlund] was drinking to the point of severe intoxication before getting behind the wheel of his Jeep.”

Following the initial crash, Roberts’ ex was found guilty on one charge of DUI while a second driving while intoxicated was ultimately dismissed.

Hedlund was subsequently sentenced to a 36-month probation period, and was ordered to complete a 9-month education and counseling program for alcohol and other drug first offenders.

Prior to their recent split, Hedlund and Roberts first met in March 2019 and then announced a little more than one year later that they were expecting a child together in August 2020. Rhodes was born in December of the same year.

“Thank you 2020 for getting one thing right. Our bright light Rhodes Robert Hedlund,” Roberts posted to social media following the birth of her and Hedlund’s son.
