Wow! People were shocked last night when Simone Biles was sent home on Dancing with the Stars!

Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei, NFL player Rashad Jennings, and former MLB player David Ross are in the finals. David feels bad because he feels that he took her spot in the finals. Ok, Simone should be in the finals but David is a fan favorite… I voted for him last night lol.

Elle King announced yesterday that she and her partner Andrew Ferguson had actually gotten secretly married 3 weeks after they met last year!!! They were supposed to have a ceremony last month but they’ve separated. “We secretly got married 3 weeks after we met on 2/14/2016,” the “Ex’s & Oh’s” singer posted on Instagram. “It was and will forever be, one of the happiest days of my life. This photo was taken today, 5/15/2017. A month after what should have been our big wedding ceremony. My heart is broken. My soul aches. I am lost.” She continued, “He is the greatest love of my life. He is my best friend. As we separate, and attempt to find our footing through life, all I can hope for us is that we both find happiness within ourselves. I love you. You’ll always have my heart. You’ll always be my first husband.” Ugh, now I feel bad… I interviewed her the day before her wedding at the GRAMMYs and laughed when she told me she was engaged after 3 weeks of knowing him! No clue she was getting married the next day!!!
Katy Perry is on Ellen today and she avoids Ellen’s question about being a judge on American Idol but the way she answers it pretty much confirms she has the job. “Judge not, lest you be judged, but they didn’t say anything about constructive criticism, and I’m good at that,” Perry said cheekily. She’s also teamed up to raise money for The Boys & Girls Clubs of America by donating $1 of each ticket to the organization.

More trouble for Jessica Alba‘s The Honest Company. The company has issued a voluntarily recall of their baby wipes after fearing they’ve been contaminated with mold. A message on the site read: “Certain lots of these Wipes are being voluntarily recalled due to the possible presence of mold. We believe the affected product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences, however, impacted wipes do have a spotted discoloration and the aesthetics are unacceptable. Out of an abundance of caution, The Honest Company has decided to voluntarily recall certain lots of this product.”
