For now, "Mission: Impossible 6" is due to hit theaters on July 27th, 2018.

Rachel Bloom Reveals “Crazy” Salary: Rachel Bloom has no problem telling you how much money she makes. The “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” star said that she brings home anywhere from $50 to $60-thousand dollars per episode. She’s not sure of the exact amount because “it comes in bulk and goes directly to a business manager.” To put it in perspective, Kaley Cuoco earns $900-thousand dollars per episode of “The Big Bang Theory.” We’ll get to see if Rachel’s worth the money when “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” returns for season three on October 13th on The CW.

HBO really can't catch a break. After dealing with a massive leak earlier this month, the network's social media platforms have been hacked.  The good news? The group, known as OurMine, didn't do any serious damage. In fact, it seems they're just calling attention to how weak the security is over at HBO.

"Bachelor In Paradise" Premiere Recap - Last night was part two of the "Bachelor in Paradise" premiere and as promised the cast sat down to talk about the situation between DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios. But first, we watched Carly Waddell and Evan Bass get hitched.  Chris Harrison officiated, of course, and both the wedding party and the guest list were chock full of familiar faces from Bachelor Nation. There was a montage of former "Bachelor" weddings then 45-minutes later, we got to the DeMario/Corinne sit down, which did not feature either party.   Instead, the other "Paradise" cast members joined Harrison to talk about the drama without giving absolutely any new information. Raven said it was "unfair" how both DeMario and Corinne were being treated while Taylor and Ben Z talked about the importance of consent.  All the cast members seemed to defend the show, saying they're not forced to do anything.     Chris Harrison ended the sit down by asking each member if they wanted to return to the show and, surprise, surprise, they all did…Night one of the "Bachelor in Paradise" premiere set a new series high when it came to viewers tuning in.

============================================================

HBO Still Wants To Make "Confederate"  -HBO is not backing down. As we previously reported, the network has been facing backlash after announcing the next project from the creators of "Game of Thrones" would be "Confederate," a show imagining life if the south had successfully seceded after the Civil War and slavery was legal. After this past weekend in Charlottesville, many took to social media to point out that we don't need "Confederate" because real life isn't that far off. Regardless, HBO isn't nixing "Confederate" and, in case you missed it, they're taking issue with the idea that they're being "irresponsible."  “HBO has a long history of championing intelligent storytelling and we will approach this project with the same level of thoughtfulness that has always defined our programming," a statement from the network reads. "We recognize the sensitivity of this project and will treat it with the respect that it deserves. Our creative partners should be given time to develop the series rather than face prejudgment.”

============================================================

The series, "Suburbs Famous," is currently in development at Bravo.

Kesha On Track For Number One - Looks like Kesha’s fans really were anxious to get their hands on some new music.

Lady Gaga To Be Deposed By Dr. Luke - Dr. Luke has been trying to get Lady Gaga to sit for a deposition in connection with his lawsuit against Kesha and it looks like she’s finally agreed.  According to a deal hashed out by her lawyers and reps for both Luke and Kesha, Gaga will respond to Luke’s subpoena to appear for a deposition “during the month of September.” In addition, Gaga has agreed to hand over the copies of text messages between her and Kesha that she originally gave to Luke’s lawyers, but with much of the text redacted.  Last month Gaga seemed poised to fight the subpoena, with her lawyers arguing, “Dr. Luke’s team is attempting to manipulate the truth and draw press attention to their case by exaggerating Lady Gaga’s role and falsely accusing her of dodging reasonable requests.”

============================================================

DJ Found Guilty Of Groping Taylor Swift Speaks Out - A jury in Denver, Colorado ruled that Taylor Swift was indeed sexually assaulted by DJ David Mueller when he groped her during a photo op at concert meet and greet, but the DJ still insists he is innocent. 

“What I’m saying is I didn’t do what they said,” Mueller said in a post-verdict interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “I never grabbed her. I never had my hand under my skirt and I can pass a polygraph.” Maybe so, but as ABC's Dan Abrams points out, Mueller destroyed all copies of a recorded conversation with his former boss, which he says proves it was a misunderstanding.  Mueller claims the real reason Taylor is so far away from him in the photo isn’t because she was inching away from him, rather that he didn’t expect to be in the picture in the first place. “I wasn’t invited to be in the photo,” he offered. “I just moved into the shot the best I could.” Mueller says he'll continue fighting to clear his name.  Mueller, who was seeking $3-million, insists that the suit wasn’t really about the money. He says initially all he really wanted was a note saying the whole thing was a misunderstanding so he’d be able to get hired by another radio station. When that didn’t happen, he proceeded with the lawsuit. “I’ve been trying to clear my name for four years,” he said. “Civil court is the only option I had. This is the only way that I could be heard.

Usher Won't Settle Lawsuits - If the people who’ve accused Usher of exposing them to herpes were looking for a quick payday, they’re going to be sorely disappointed. Sources from his camp say he has no intention of settling. At this point, there haven’t been any settlement talks, and Usher isn’t interested in throwing cash at the issue to make it go away. As we’ve told you, three women and a man are suing him for having sexual contact without disclosing his alleged herpes status. For the record, Usher hasn’t addressed whether he actually has the disease.

Anna Faris Breaks Silence Post Split From Chris Pratt - The Internet's heart broke when Anna Faris and Chris Pratt announced they were calling it quits after eight years of marriage. While both Faris and Pratt confirmed the news on social media, they've stayed quiet since. Until now. In the first episode of her podcast since news of her divorce surfaced, Anna thanked fans. “Hey, dear listeners," she started the episode of "Anna Faris is Unqualified." "I just want to thank you all so much for all the love I’ve been receiving, and I truly love you." And yes, that's all she said - as it was a pre-taped episode. As listeners of "Anna Faris is Unqualified" know, she has always been open about her personal life, including talking about feeling "lonely" in the last episode released before news of the split broke. Maybe that means maybe we'll get more of an inside look from Faris during the next live episode...

"Recently, I had been trying on my own to treat my back pain and a sleep disorder, including insomnia, but I realize now it was a mistake to do this without medical assistance. I am continuing to work with my doctors, and they feel I've made significant progress." He went on to say that he remains "grateful for the amazing support that I continue to receive and for the family and friends that are assisting me.” Woods also spoke on his back injury. He said that his fusion is healing well, and he’s right on schedule. He added, “I'm now doing some light lifting, riding a stationary bike and putting a little.”
