We’ve got celebrity win­ners, losers

Tampa Bay Times - - Front Page - By Alexa Vol­land, Times staff writer

From Cardi B and Sarah Jes­sica Parker to Megyn Kelly and Tom Wopat, keep up with the en­ter­tain­ment news of the week.

WIN­NERS

CARDI B

The rap­per fi­nally nabbed the No. 1 spot on the Bill­board Hot 100, and she did it all on her own. Earn­ing the top spot is an achieve­ment for any artist, but it’s an even big­ger deal for Cardi B’s Bo­dak Yel­low .In Bill­board’s 59-year his­tory, only two fe­male rap­pers have been able to top the chart with­out the ac­com­pa­ni­ment of an­other artist. The only other rap­per to do so was Lau­ryn Hill with Doo-Wop (That Thing)s in 1998.

SARAH JES­SICA PARKER

Cue the Sex and the City open­ing mu­sic. You can now go shoe shop­ping with Sarah Jes­sica Parker. Parker has part­nered up with Airbnb to cre­ate a pretty awe­some New York ex­cur­sion. Dur­ing the two-hour tour, you stop in the Bloom­ing­dales flag­ship, get a pair of shoes from SJP’s col­lec­tion, talk over some froyo then head to the New York City Bal­let. The ex­pe­ri­ence is limited and costs $400, with the money go­ing to the bal­let. But it’s nice to see celebs con­nect­ing with fans.

LOSERS

MEGYN KELLY

The former Fox News host had a rough de­but week on her new NBC day­time show. Will & Grace star De­bra Mess­ing said on so­cial me­dia she re­gret­ted ap­pear­ing: “Re­gret go­ing on. Dis­mayed by her com­ments.” Kelly re­ceived back­lash on­line af­ter bring­ing a Will & Grace fan on dur­ing a Mon­day seg­ment with the sit­com’s cast and ask­ing him if he was in­spired to be­come gay and a lawyer be­cause of Eric McCor­mack’s char­ac­ter, a gay at­tor­ney. She told him she thought “the Will & Grace thing and the gay thing is go­ing to work out.” On Wed­nes­day, Kelly hosted Jane Fonda to talk about new movie Our Souls at Night. “I read that you said you felt — you’re not proud to ad­mit you’ve had work done,” Kelly told Fonda. “Why not?” Fonda’s icy stare quickly be­came a meme on­line.

TOM WOPAT

The Dukes of Haz­zard star, ac­cused of grop­ing a fe­male cast mem­ber of a mu­si­cal, now faces charges he in­de­cently as­saulted a 16-year-old girl. Court records made pub­lic this week show Wopat is charged with as­sault­ing the girl and a woman in July while re­hears­ing for the mu­si­cal 42nd Street near Bos­ton. A po­lice re­port says Wopat al­legedly hit the girl’s but­tocks with his script, say­ing “nice butt.”
