The Daily Dish For June 18th

KHLOE KARDASHIAN: Home in L.A.


Khloe Kardashian and her baby daughter are back home in L.A.

The reality star hit Instagram on Sunday to share a picture of a balloon that read, “Welcome home Khloe and True.” Another balloon revealed that the balloons came from sister Kylie Jenner and her four-month-old daughter, Stormi.

According to Us Magazine, Tristan Thompson was also in L.A. with his family to celebrate Father's Day.

Khloe gave birth to True two months ago in Cleveland, where she was living with the Cavaliers star -- despite his cheating ways.


MILLIE BOBBY BROWN: Splits Kneecap


Millie Bobby Brown missed this weekend's MTV Movie & TV Awards after splitting her kneecap.

The Stranger Things star revealed in an Instagram video Friday that she got injured and couldn't make it. In the video, the 14-year-old said, “I hope [co-stars] Gaten and Caleb, Finn, Sadie and Noah have the best time and I love them so dearly. I wish you guys the best and I’m sending my luck with you, and I’ll be there in spirit.”

She's nominated for seven trophies at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, which airs Monday.

It's lucky Millie still had a social media account to make the announcement on. She recently quit Twitter after being made the subject of homophobic memes.


CHRIS HARDWICK: Talk Show Pulled After Sexual Abuse Allegations


Chris Hardwick’s new AMC talk show has been pulled from the schedule after his ex-girlfriend accused the producer and host of Talking Dead of sexual abuse.

Actress and model Chloe Dykstra, who dated the comedian from 2011 to 2014, wrote an essay on Medium last week charging Chris with inflicting “long-lasting trauma, physical and emotional” on her and said that she was obligated to have sex with him. She also accused the Nerdist founder of blacklisting her after they broke up.

On Saturday, Chris denied the allegations. “Our three-year relationship was not perfect. We were ultimately not a good match and argued — even shouted at each other — but I loved her, and did my best to uplift and support her as a partner and companion in any way. At no time did I sexually assault her. When we were living together, I found out that Chloe had cheated on me, and I ended the relationship. For several weeks after we broke up, she asked to get back together with me and even told me she wanted to have kids with me, ‘build a life’ with me and told me that I was ‘the one,’ but I did not want to be with someone who was unfaithful.”

In a statement on Saturday, AMC said, “We have had a positive working relationship with Chris Hardwick for many years. We take the troubling allegations that surfaced yesterday very seriously. While we assess the situation, Talking With Chris Hardwick will not air on AMC.” The second season of the show was set to kick off tonight (Sunday).

Chris's gig hosting the NBC game show The Wall is also in jeopardy. The network said it is “continuing to assess the situation and will take appropriate action based on the outcome.”

Since 2016, Chris has been married to model and actress Lydia Hearst, whose mother is heiress Patty Hearst.


HOLLYWOOD BUZZ


Giuliana Rancic will return to co-host E! News. The cable network announced on Friday that she'll be back September 4th, joining co-host Jason Kennedy. Rancic co-hosted the entertainment news show from 2005 to 2015.

The Comedy Central late-night series The Opposition, hosted by Jordan Klepper, has been cancelled after one season. He'll now host a weekly series instead. The final episode of The Opposition will air on June 28th. The new show, titled Klepper, is likely to launch next year. 

Netflix has picked up Lucifer for a fourth season. The show was canceled by FOX last month.


ROSEANNE: Spinoff Closer to Reality


The Roseanne spinoff is one step closer to becoming a reality.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Roseanne Barr has agreed in principle to walk away from the characters she helped create in order to allow Roseanne’s cast and crew to pursue a spinoff in the wake of the show’s May cancellation due to her racist tweets."

The sticking point is what the comedian will receive in compensation. ABC and producer Carsey-Werner insist that she not "participate financially" in the spinoff, which will most likely focus on Sara Gilbert's character. As The Hollywood Reporter points outs, "Now the negotiation is over what, if any, one-time payment she should receive as 'go-away money.'"

John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf are said to be “tentatively” on board for the new series.

FLEETWOOD MAC: Almost Went Their Own Ways


Mick Fleetwood says Fleetwood Mac had to have a heart-to-heart before deciding to continue as a band without Lindsey Buckingham, who refused to tour this year.

Speaking to Yahoo, Fleetwood says, "It was a team huddle of the existing band members to really not panic into anything, other than really following our hearts as to what this meant — which was huge, any which way you look at it. And once we had galvanized that approach amongst the four remaining folks, we took the bull by the horns. It was really as simple as that. But it certainly took a real, meaningful breath. All of us, probably in our various ways, came to that decision that we want to, we need to, we feel good about it."

Buckingham was replaced by Neil Finn of Crowded House and Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell. The band will include a Crowded House and a Tom Petty song in the show. Fleetwood believes this line-up will make new music.

The tour starts October 3rd in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with a warm-up show a few weeks earlier at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.
