Was The Next Bachelorette Changed From Caila To JoJo At The Last Minute?? See The Producer's Seeming Confirmation!

no title

This is quite an interesting coincidence…

JoJo Fletcher is all set to be the next Bachelorette, as we reported earlier this week, but it now appears that was a decision made at truly the last minute — and at the expense of Caila Quinn!

The Bachelor franchise allegedly was all set to go with Caila after running some screen tests with her several weeks ago, including a full Bachelorette intro package, until they decided late in the process to go with JoJo!

Showrunner Mike Fleiss tweeted some interesting things last week that — now looking back on it — may have leaked that decision to go away from their initial diverse choice (Caila is Filipino) and instead choose the southerner, JoJo.

It all had to do with food (below):

no title

This year's Oscars was surrounded by controversy due to the whole #OscarsSoWhite issue.

Thankfully, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences was very quick to try and take steps to help diversify the awards, but it didn't keep some people like Jada Pinkett Smith from speaking her mind and boycotting the award show.

Since Smith was one of the most outspoken protesters, Chris Rock — who hosted the Academy Awards this year — had to joke about the actress in his opening monologue saying:

"Jada said she's not coming. I was like, ‘Isn't she on a TV show?' Jada's gonna boycott the Oscars? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna's panties. I wasn't invited!"

While several people found the bit pretty funny, we still hadn't heard Jada's thoughts on the diss until Saturday when X17 caught up with the actress at LAX!

When asked about Rock's crack, the 44-year-old responded by saying:

Frustrated by weeks of being pre-empted for election coverage, Harris-Perry fired off an open letter to her staff late last week about how, even though MSNBC would have allowed her back on air over the weekend, she wasn't going to cave.

The letter, which blamed MSNBC execs for keeping her off the air without a clear reason or explanation, read in part (below):

We are STILL in stitches!

On Sunday, Chris Rock hosted the 2016 Oscars where he completely shocked the audience with his edgy sense of humor!

Not surprisingly, the comedian addressed the many controversies surrounding this year's award show, notably the lack of diversity in Hollywood.

From Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's boycott, to racism in the entertainment industry, Rock made fun of everything and anything in his opening monologue!

Later in the show, he even brought out Stacey Dash for a bit!

This is definitely one of the most memorable Oscars in history. We totally think he should host next year's ceremony!
