Shelley Rome's ENT Report: Joe Exotic To Carole Baskin "Put up or Shut up"


Joe Exotic is telling Carole Baskin and her husband to put up or shut up. While the “Tiger King” is spending 22 years in the clink for the murder-for-hire plot against Baskin, her husband says if Joe backs the Big Cat Public Safety Act, they’ll petition for his early release. Joe’s called their bluff, since he thinks they’re using him for publicity. The ball’s in Carole’s court.

All that petitioning to get LeVar Burton as a guest “Jeopardy!” host has paid off! Closing out season 37 of the show, the first without Alex Trebek, is the “Reading Rainbow” icon. Before he wraps the season, Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, David Faber, and Joe Buck (already leaked) will get two week stints. Burton has said he wants the gig badly – maybe this’ll seal the deal!

Is Tom Bergeron returning to “Dancing With The Stars?” He teased us by tweeting “Stay tuned…” alongside the “Godfather” quote “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.” After fans melted down, he promised an update by next week. Is it too good to be true? What does this mean for Tyra Banks? OR.....What if he is returning as a dancer? We’ll see...

During an interview with "GLAMOUR,” actress Elizabeth Olsen opened up about wanting to change her last name growing up because of her famous sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. She said...."I guess I understood what nepotism was inherently as a 10-year-old. There is some sort of association of not earning something that I think bothered me." I think it speaks volumes that that there are so many people who don’t realize she’s the younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley, or that they even have a younger sister in the business. She did what she set out to do and truly made a name for herself. Who you know may get you in the door but what you know will determine how long you stay there.
