DAVE BAUTISTA BLASTS DISNEY: The crew of Guardians of the Galaxy has come out swinging for director James Gunn after Disney ousted him for decade-old tweets he sent out making light of pedophilia and rape. Dave Bautista has been one of Gunn’s most vocal defenders, and the WWE wrestler-turned-actor "thanked" the company in a tweet that likened Disney to President Donald Trump. "Thanks Disney!! Making America Great Again," Bautista wrote alongside an article on the subject. Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana have also rallied to Gunn’s side, but Disney has said repeatedly that it will stand by its decision.
THOMAS MARKLE LIKENS THE ROYAL FAMILY TO A CULT: Meghan Markle’s father Thomas, 74, is talking to the press again. The 74-year-old described the royal family as "cult-like" to The Sun.

NOW NIKKI BELLA WANTS KIDS IN HER 40s: WWE twins-turned-reality superstars Nikki and Brie Bella have never been shy about sharing personal updates. Keeping up with Nikki’s personal life has been challenging even for the most devoted Total Bellas fans, as she plans a wedding to John Cena, publicly breaks it off just weeks before the big day, gets back together (maybe?), and then again claims they’re just BFFs. While some claim the on-and-off nature of their romance was a play for ratings on the E! show, Nikki maintains it was all legit. "People said it was fake for ratings, but don’t you think a wedding would be best for ratings? I would never fake a break-up," Nikki explained. "And when people keep questioning it, it actually makes your heart ache even more." One of their biggest sticking points was her desire to have children. But now, it seems, she’s ready to put things on pause. "She has been the best form of birth control for me," Nikki, 34, said of her year-old niece, Birdie, who is Brie’s daughter. "Here I was dying to be a mom. Now I want to push it back. Can my clock tick until my 40s?"
