Rob Kardashian reportedly has ‘dance party’ with sister Khloe amid Blac Chyna scandal

Khloe Kardashian posted about her brother on social media Wednesday, not to comment on the ongoing situation, but to reveal to her followers that they’re both hanging out like nothing is happening.

Despite Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s ongoing social media beef and legal feud, neither is slowing down. Khloe Kardashian took to social media to claim she was casually hanging out with her brother just days after he was hit with a restraining order.

Khloe posted a Snapchat video on Wednesday in which she showed off the sunrise and said she was heading out for an early-morning workout with Rob and her boyfriend Tristan Thompson.

Later that evening, she posted another Snap of herself in which she mentions that she’s having a “dance party” with the duo. While Rob cannot be seen in either post, it seems that the recent family shakeup isn’t stopping him from hannging out with his sister and friends.

As previously reported, Rob Kardashian is in some hot water after posting some explicit photos of his ex-fiancee, Blac Chynna, to his social media. In addition, he accused her of both cheating on him and using drugs. The 29-year-old model responded with allegations of physical abuse and was granted a temporary restraining order against Kardashian on Monday. Together, the two are the parents of 7-month-old Dream Kardashian.

According to E! Online, Khloe and Tristan are making a conscious effort to get Rob to hang out with them in the hopes it will help him through the tough time.

“She is trying to help him. Rob didn’t move in with her, but Khloe and Tristan are encouraging him to come hangout at the house and workout with them hoping it will motivate him to get back on the health grind and take care of himself,” a source told the outlet. “She wants him to get back on track so she is trying to help him.”

Madonna may have called Sharone Stone ‘mediocre’ but Stone doesn’t mind

Many years ago Madonna allegedly wrote a letter that shaded two iconic stars, Whitney Houston and Sharon Stone.

Many years ago Madonna allegedly wrote a letter that slammed two iconic stars: Whitney Houston and Sharon Stone. The pop legend supposedly penned her angst about being overshadowed by “mediocre” talents such as the two aforementioned women, according to JustJared.com.

In the 1990s letter Madonna reportedly wrote, “It’s so unequivicably [sic] frustrating to read that Whitney Houston has the music career I wish I had and Sharon Stone has the film career I’ll never have. Not because I want to be these women because I’d rather die but they’re so horribly mediocre and they’re always being held up as paragons of virtue and some sort of measuring stick to humiliate me.”

After learning of the letter, Stone responded to Madonna on social media, and “The Basic Instinct” actress took the high road.

SHARON STONE: I FELT LIKE I DIED

“Dear Madonna, First, I think it’s absurd that anyone is publishing your private letters. Therefore; I publish publicly. Know that I am your friend. I have wished to be a rock star in some private moments… have felt as mediocre as you described. We know, as only those who have survived so long that owning our own mediocrity is the only way to own our own strengths; to become all that we both have become. I love and adore you; won’t be pitted against you by any invasion of our personal journeys. Sharon.”

Cannon and Carey tied the knot in April 2008 and had two children, fraternal twins, Moroccan and Monroe in 2011. Cannon filed for divorce in Dec. 2014. Their divorce was finalized in 2016.

Cannon dated after his divorce and most recently ended his relationship with former Miss Arizona U.S.A. Brittany Bell. The two had a child in February but broke up before their son’s birth after a short relationship.

Cannon said he continues to date.

“That (him and Carrey’s marriage) was a special time,” Cannon said. “It was, but we made some amazing children together, and so we’ll always be together.”

Fred Savage dismisses ‘Wonder Years’ reboot: ‘It’s not going to happen’

Many fans still recognize Fred Savage as love-struck Kevin Arnold who pined for Winnie Cooper in “The Wonder Years,” and he doesn’t mind the attention.

Many fans still recognize Fred Savage as love-struck Kevin Arnold who pined for Winnie Cooper in “The Wonder Years,” and he doesn’t mind the attention.

The series, which was set in the ‘60s, aired from 1988 until 1993.

“I think the fact that I was a part of something that still means so much to people, and after all these years they still want it to be on the air, they still think about it…I mean, that’s really a special thing,” the 41-year-old told Vanity Fair. “Some people work their whole careers and don’t get that! So, no, I’ll never get tired of that. That’ll never stop being meaningful to me or stop making me feel incredibly special.”

The former child star is also aware many viewers have wondered about the possibility of a “Wonder Years” reunion set in the ‘90s where the characters are adults.

“[But] my answer will remain the same — so I won’t get tired of people asking if everyone else doesn’t get tired of me saying, ‘No, it’s not going to happen,’” said the actor.

Savage is also busy these days with a new project. He’s starring in a new Netflix sitcom titled “Friends from College.” Still, he acknowledged how important “The Wonder Years” has been to viewers. However, he’s perfectly content with leaving the show in the past.

“You know, I’ve always said that ‘The Wonder Years,’ it’s not just the name of the show — it’s a time in your life, a very special, finite time in your life,” he explained. “And the way the show was written, it’s about looking back with some longing. I think we all look back at that time in our lives and long for it and idealize it.

“One of the reasons it takes on this kind of mythic, almost haunting quality in our lives is because it’s something you can’t go back and can’t revisit. It only exists in our memories, in our shared experiences with people who went through it with us. That’s really what the show was all about. And I think that the idea of revisiting the show mirrors that. And I like that.”

‘Walking Dead’ stuntman dead after on-set accident; production shut down

A stuntman working on the set of “The Walking Dead” has reportedly suffered a serious injury to his head.

A stuntman from “The Walking Dead” has died after he had an accident on the set of the AMC series.

The Coweta County Coroner’s Office told Fox News stuntman John Bernecker died Wednesday evening of “blunt force trauma” after he suffered a fall. His death has been ruled accidental.

AMC told Fox News on Thursday — before Bernecker’s death was confirmed — that the network was “keeping John and his family in our thoughts and prayers.”

The show has “temporarily shut down production” following the accident, AMC told Fox News.

Bernecker was working on the set of Season 8 when he fell more than 20 feet onto a concrete surface, Deadline reported. Bernecker was reportedly treated at Atlanta Medical Center, a level 1 trauma center, before his death.

The coronor said, “He succumbed to his injuries from the fall.”

Reps for AMC did not immediately return Fox News’ requests for comment on Friday.

Credits on Bernecker’s IMDB page and his reel include “24: Legacy,” “Get Out,” “Get Hard,” “The Fate of the Furious” and many more.

Additionally, the show made headlines Thursday after AMC released a slew of profane emails sent by the series’ former showrunner Frank Darabont as part of an ongoing lawsuit between the network and Darabont over his firing during Season 2.

‘Avatar’ sequels defended by Sigourney Weaver

Sigourney Weaver, who played Dr. Grace Augustine in James Cameron’s 2009 film, says she’s getting back to work on not one, but four followups to the box office hit.

After many months of talk and rumors, the highly anticipated sequels to “Avatar” are finally becoming a reality. To get people excited about the film’s beginning of production, one key actress in the franchise is teasing some minor details.

Sigourney Weaver, who played Dr. Grace Augustine in James Cameron’s 2009 film, says she’s getting back to work on not one, but four followups to the box office hit. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the 67-year-old actress revealed that she’ll begin working on the films this summer. The first follow up will drop more than a decade after its predecessor. However, Weaver believes, having read all four scripts, both the timing and the volume of the sequels is still relevant.

‘AVATAR’ SEQUELS NOW SCHEDULED TO START IN DECEMBER 2020

“These films are very much about the peril of this beautiful planet, and [Cameron] is continuing the same themes of greed and callousness of the corporations and plight of the indigenous people,” she said. “At this point after a long and very satisfying career – I can’t believe it’s been 40 years, but anyway – I’m very excited to be able to work on these four stories.”

The actress went on to describe how the “Avatar” franchise is the most ambitious project she’s ever been involved with, and hearing the director’s plans for what’s ahead, it’s easy to see why.

WALT DISNEY WORLD UNVEILS PANDORA LAND, THE NEWEST PARK BASED ON ‘AVATAR’

In April, an announcement on the film’s official Facebook page revealed the release dates for all four sequels, with the first dropping in December 2020, followed by a third film in 2021, a fourth in 2024 and the last in 2025.

“We have decided to embark on a truly massive cinematic project, making four epic films, each of which stands alone but together forms a complete saga,” Cameron said at CinemaCon, per Variety.

Neither Weaver nor Cameron’s comments give any specific plot details about what fans can expect from the new films, other than the fact that Weaver’s character will somehow return despite dying in the 2009 movie.

Padres host Giants in first series of 2nd half

The San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants meet on Friday, in places they never dreamed.

SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants meet on Friday, in places they never dreamed.

San Diego is at home in Petco Park where the views are always grand. But with the Padres (38-50) in full-throttle, rebuild-mode, they didn’t envision looking down at another NL West team.

Instead there sits fifth-place San Francisco (34-56) as it grabs for an elusive ripcord.

The free-falling Giants are in the division cellar and are showing no signs of life. They enter their three-game set with the Padres after getting swept at home by the Miami Marlins.

San Francisco had to let that marinate during the All-Star break, a perfect reminder of what a sour season it has been for the recent three-time world champions. Manager Bruce Bochy’s team is on pace for 101 losses; only one other Giants squad (1985) has finished with more than 100 defeats.

But righty Johnny Cueto (6-7. 4.51) is on the hill and that could pay off against the Padres’ young lineup. It’s mostly a collection of rookies and trying to decipher the crafty Cueto’s release point might be a challenge.

Cueto has won eight of his 12 lifetime decisions against the Padres, pitching to a 2.93 ERA. In five outings at Petco, he’s gone 3-2 with a 3.21 ERA.

The Giants are also eager to see Cueto shine for multiple reasons. With the Giants easing into their own reconstruction period, the veteran Cueto could be an enticing target for contending teams.

Cueto’s value doesn’t match this time last year, when he was 13-1. He was rocked last Friday, when allowing six runs and six hits over six innings. That came on the heels of him missing a start with an inner ear infection.

The savvy Cueto hears the chatter about him possibly being on the move. But he remains fond of San Francisco.

“What I’m thinking is I want to stay here,” he told Mlb.com. “But at the same time, if they decide they want to do that, that’s their decision.”

In Clayton Richard (5-8, 4.66), the Giants will see a refreshed southpaw coming off a solid start. In Philadelphia last Friday, he spun six innings of one-run ball, driven from the game more so by the rain than the Phillies’ bats.

When facing the Giants, Richard is 6-6 with a 3.98 ERA.

He’s also another interesting trade card the Padres might play at some point. It’s no mystery the Padres are looking forward while building around rookies, among them catcher Austin Hedges and right fielder Hunter Renfroe.

It’s expected that Renfroe, who leads the team with 16 homers, will return to the lineup. He skipped the first-half finale with a sore neck.

Padres skeptics were rubbing their necks after watching San Diego drop 30 of its first 45 games. Since, they’re an admirable 23-20 and have won two straight series, both on the road.

“We still have a long way to go to be the type of team that we want to be,” Padres manager Andy Green said. “(But) there’s been a lot of positives from our young kids.”

Richard, 33, isn’t among the peach-fuzz brigade.

Neither is the 31-year-old Cueto for the Giants.

That means Friday’s matchup between them should draw interest from teams looking to get better, instead of younger.

‘Married at First Sight’s’ Nick Pendergrast is having twins with new girlfriend

“Married at First Sight’s” Nick Pendergrast is expecting twins with her new girlfriend, Heather Yerrid.

“Married at First Sight’s” Nick Pendergrast is expecting twins with her new girlfriend, Heather Yerrid. The couple only met in person in May after talking for three months. The romance came on the heels of the reality star’s divorce from Sonia Granados in April. Pendergrast spoke to Fox News about impending fatherhood, his “depleting” divorce and his reality TV future.

Fox News: You reached out to Heather for life advice. What drew you to her?

Nick Pendergrast: I reached out to Heather for advice on myself, not my marriage. I was headed for divorce so I knew that my marriage was not salvageable. What drew me to her was her ability to not entertain negativity and her posts about spirituality. What I was doing at the time to improve myself wasn’t effective. She always had a conscious perspective on our relationships and it seem to make sense.

‘MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT’ PAIRS OFF STRANGERS HOPING TO FIND TRUE LOVE

Fox News: You spoke for three months before meeting in person in May and by July you’re pregnant with twins. Was this something planned or a complete happy surprise?

Pendergrast: After Sonia stood me up for Valentine’s Day, it was then I realized she had given up one-hundred percent. Shortly after that, I reached out to Heather a couple of times for guidance on how to get back to focusing on me and getting my life together. Going through a divorce is messy and depleting. To be honest, I was ready to focus on myself from being so drained from the last eight months so this was a complete surprise. It just happened.

Fox News: Would you consider a spin off show or another reality show in the future?

Pendergrast: There are so many things that influence your intimate relationships for better or worse, especially children. The early weeks of pregnancy for Heather have not been easy and my life has completely changed. I believe sharing that with the world would be helpful not only for couples and moms but also soon to be dads. It’s hard but it’s amazing. The more people can see that, the better.

Fox News: How did being on reality TV change your life?

Pendergrast: Being on reality TV enabled me to see where I need to work on myself. It also showed me how easily influenced I could be by people that didn’t even know me. I am handling this entire situation much differently.

Fox News: Have you spoken to your ex-wife since your divorce?

Pendergrast: Sonia and I have not spoken since we filed for divorce.

Fox News: What advice do you have for anyone wanting to sign up for the show?

Pendergrast: For anyone signing up for any reality TV show, I would remind them that they were chosen out of thousands of people to display their life. They signed up for the good, the bad, and the ugly. They will get the opportunity to take part in some phenomenal learning opportunities about their self and to try hard not to take social media seriously. People who’ve never been brave enough to live their lives in front of cameras should not throw stones at those who are.

Indians return with six-day stretch against worst of West

Cleveland Indians get a chance to pull away from their American League Central competition.

OAKLAND, Calif. — The Cleveland Indians get a chance to pull away from their American League Central competition when they embark on a six-day stretch against the worst of the West, beginning with a three-game series vs. the Oakland Athletics on Friday night.

Coverage begins with Indians Live at 9:30 p.m. on SportsTime Ohio

The Indians get an unusual scheduling break when they follow up the Oakland series with one against the A’s neighbor, the San Francisco Giants. It won’t require a hotel change between facing the last-place team in the AL West and last-place club in the National League West.

The Indians entered the break having won three of four, and eight of 13 since taking over first place from the Minnesota Twins on June 26.

They finished the first half without manager Terry Francona, who underwent a procedure to deal with cardiac arrhythmia July 6. He is expected to rejoin the team for Friday’s game after missing his opportunity to manage in the All-Star Game on Tuesday.

Right-hander Carlos Carrasco, an All-Star selection who did not pitch Tuesday, is scheduled to start the series opener for the Indians.

The 10-game winner (10-3, 3.44 ERA) has gone 5-0 in his last six starts, a stretch that began shortly after he’d beaten the A’s 5-3 on May 29, allowing two runs and four hits in seven innings.

The seven-strikeout performance improved Carrasco’s all-time record against the A’s to 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA in five games (four starts).

Three Indians pitchers combined to strike out 12 batters that night, kicking off a four-game home series in which A’s batters fanned a whopping 59 times.

Cleveland won three of four in the series, including a 9-4 victory when they faced Oakland ace Sonny Gray, who is slated to pitch for the A’s on Friday night.

Like Carrasco, Gray enters the series opener in fine form, having allowed four earned runs in his last three starts over 21 innings.

No doubt, more eyes will be on Gray on Friday night than just A’s, Indians and their fans. The former All-Star has been the subject of much trade speculation, chatter that got louder in and around Oakland this week when the Chicago White Sox received quite a haul — including two prized prospects — from the Chicago Cubs in exchange for left-hander Jose Quintana.

The trade deadline is July 31. Counting Friday’s appearance, Gray is tentatively scheduled to make four more starts before the deadline.

A’s manager Bob Melvin hopes the All-Star break doesn’t kill his star’s momentum.

“He’s back to looking like he has in the past and a lot of it had to do with health,” Melvin observed after his last start. “Last year, he was back and forth on the (disabled list). I don’t know that in his mind, he felt great even when he was out here.

“Once he came back (from the DL) this year and got a couple starts under his belt, the velocity was back, the movement was back. He’s back doing his thing, like we expect him to do.”

He’ll take the mound Friday with a 4-4 record and 4.00 ERA. Coincidentally, he also has a .500 record (2-2) and a 4.00 ERA in six career starts against the Indians.

One batter Gray figures to have to deal with is Indians outfielder Bradley Zimmer, who had hits in his last four games (7-for-17) before the break.

The rookie from the University of San Francisco will be playing in the San Francisco Bay Area the next six days for the first time as a major leaguer.

Indians All-Star reliever Andrew Miller has been impressed with what he’s seen so far of the 6-foot-5, 220-pound former first-round pick.

“He’s so big compared to what we think of as the speedy guys,” Miller said recently of Zimmer, who has nine steals in his first 49 games to go along with a .285 average, five home runs and 25 RBIs. “Whether that’s just getting from home to first, beating out a ground ball, running in a gap, stealing a base, it’s a little bit confusing to the eyes. I’d take him in a race with just about anybody.”

Preview: Marlins return to action against MLB-best Dodgers

The Miami Marlins open up the second half at home against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

TV: FOX Sports Florida

TIME: Pregame coverage begins at 6:30 p.m.

MIAMI — The Miami Marlins are coming off a good week.

The Los Angeles Dodgers, meanwhile, are having a great season.

On Friday, the Dodgers, who have the best record in the majors at 61-29, visit the mediocre Marlins (41-46), who are in third place in the NL East.

Watch the Miami Marlins on FOX Sports Florida

The past week has been good for the Marlins because they swept the San Francisco Giants in three games and then hosted the All-Star Game for the first time, and everything went off rather well.

But perspective on the sweep is needed: The Giants have the second-worst record in the majors. In addition, the Marlins are 10 1/2 games out of first place in the National League East and nine games back in the wild-card race.

The Dodgers could put a quick end to Miami’s modest win streak, which stands at just those three against the Giants.

The pressure is on the Marlins to come off the All-Star break hot because many of these Miami players could be traded if that does not happen.

“If we want to stay together, if we want to have a chance to not have a wasted year, this is huge,” Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton told the media after sweeping the Giants. “We have to have some jump in the second half … and see what happens.”

The Dodgers are under no such pressure. They will send right-hander Brandon McCarthy (6-3, 3.12 ERA) to the mound against Marlins right-hander Dan Straily.

The last time McCarthy faced the Marlins, he was outstanding, holding them to three hits, one walk and one run in six innings, earning the victory on May 21.

That continued a brief trend. In two career games against the Marlins, McCarthy is 2-0 with an 0.60 ERA.

Meanwhile, Straily (7-4, 3.31 ERA) is coming off one of his best performances ever. On July 7, he went a career-long 8 1/3 innings, defeating the Giants 6-1 and allowing just one run on four hits and no walks.

That continues a trend for Straily, who has a 2.95 ERA since the start of June. During that span, he has struck out 8.3 batters per every walk.

Straily is 1-1 with a 7.20 ERA in four career games against the Dodgers. But he beat them in his only appearance against them this year, allowing three runs in 5 2/3 innings at Dodger Stadium on May 20.

Friday’s game will likely feature some of the game’s best power hitters. Stanton is tied for the NL lead with 26 homers, and Dodgers rookie Clay Bellinger is third with 25 long balls.

The Marlins have two other sluggers with at least 20 homers. Left fielder Marcell Ozuna has 23 homes, and first baseman Justin Bour has 20. It is the first time in franchise history that the Marlins have three hitters with at least 20 homers by the All-Star break.

Ozuna is coming off a hot road trip with 16 RBIs, tying a club record.

The Marlins are catching a break this series because the Dodgers are resting ace Clayton Kershaw (14-2, 2.18 ERA). Kershaw will skip the Marlins series before returning.

“I just want to go out there and keep winning games,” Kershaw told the media right before the break.

In addition to not starting Kershaw, the Dodgers may be without catcher Yasmani Grandal, a former Miami Hurricanes star who has experienced swelling in his left hand.

Meanwhile, the Marlins could be getting shortstop Miguel Rojas off the disabled list. He has been out of the Marlins’ lineup since May 7 due to a broken right thumb but returned to minor league rehab games last week.

The slick-fielding Rojas would give the Marlins a boost since he was hitting .338 with a .789 OPS at the time of the injury. JT Riddle, the rookie who has assumed the starting shortstop job in Rojas’ absence, is hitting just .255 with a 652 OPS.

Still, even if Rojas returns, Miami will face a major challenge this weekend against the best team in baseball at the moment.

And, besides Los Angeles, the Marlins will also be cognizant of the July 31 trade deadline, which lurks in the background.

As Stanton pointed out, if the Marlins want to stay together as a team, they need to string together a substantial win streak, and they need to do so quickly.
