Michael J. Fox appeared at a convention called FanExpo in Philadelphia over the weekend. He did a panel with his “Back to the Future” co-stars Christopher Lloyd and Tom Wilson . . . who played Biff. As Michael took the stage and was making his way to the couch where he was going to sit, he tripped and fell forward. Luckily, he landed ON THE COUCH, so he was okay. He even played it off by jumping to his feet, and then back down on the couch. Michael’s rep says he’s “doing great,” but it’s still scary watching him fall . . . especially since he just recently talked about how dangerous that can be for Parkinson’s sufferers. “Now I’ve started to break stuff. I broke this arm and this arm, I broke this elbow. I broke my face. I broke my hand from falling, which is a big killer with Parkinson’s.”
Jelly Roll talked about his past as a convicted felon . . . and how he’s overcome those challenges to build a career. Jelly Roll’s wife Bunnie XO has openly discussed her life as an exotic dancer and, in her words, “a high-class call girl.” She has her own podcast called “Dumb Blonde”, and she holds nothing back. A clip from 2019 is making the rounds where she talks about leaving an abusive home at 14. She worked odd jobs, and eventually as a stripper and call girl. She won’t “apologize for what she’s done to survive.” She says her life changed when she met Jelly Roll who “knows everything about me and doesn’t care”.
Yung Gravy posted a sketch on TikTok with Lainey Wilson, and he dropped innuendo about “biscuits” that SEEMED like he could be FLIRTING with her. But – she’s been dating former NFL player Devlin “Duck” Hodges for two years. Their relationship has been low-key, so maybe Gravy didn’t realize she was taken. But it’s possible that Gravy was just being playful, and was just referencing how Lainey’s backside went viral a couple months ago.
