For today’s Zwecker’s Gossip Minute we start out with romance news as Chicago-area native and actor Sean Hayes gets engaged to his longtime partner, music producer and composer Scott Icenogle.
Item #2: That didn’t last long! Jennifer Lawrence reportedly has dumped Coldplay’s Chris Martin, only a couple of months after she started dating Gwyneth Paltrow’s ex-husband.
Item #3: More news about Neil Patrick Harris. The recently-named Oscar host will also be hosting a new project for NBC: An American re-do of the popular British variety show, “Saturday Night Takeaway.” Of course, the NBC show will likely not air on Saturday nights — and it’s slated to get a new name.
Item #4: Pitbull and filmmaking mogul Harvey Weinstein’s names rarely are in the same sentence, but the Hollywood bigshot will be overseeing two new reality shows starring Pitbull. One will be a show about his upcoming tour, behind the scenes looks at his musical career and personal life. The other will be called “The REAL Change Project,” with Pitbull teaming up with the likes of Michelle Obama, Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney and Kobe Bryant — to talk about obstacles they overcame in their youth — and the mentors who helped them on their path to success.
