Gal Gadot will only be ‘Wonder Woman’ again if Brett Ratner is out.....

“Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot is continuing to battle accused Hollywood sexual harasser Brett Ratner by refusing to sign for a super­hero sequel unless the movie-maker is completely killed from the franchise. Gadot — who last month backed out of a dinner honoring Ratner, where she was due to present him with an award — is taking a strong stance on sexual harassment in Hollywood and doesn’t want her hit “Wonder Woman” franchise to benefit a man accused of sexual misconduct. Ratner’s production company RatPac-Dune Entertainment helped produce “Wonder Woman” as part of its co-financing deal with Warner Bros. The movie has grossed more than $400 million internationally, and Ratner’s company will take a healthy share of the profits. A Warner Bros. insider explained, “Brett made a lot of money from the success of ‘Wonder Woman,’ thanks to his company having helped finance the first movie. Now Gadot is saying she won’t sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him.” The source added of Israeli-born Gadot, “She’s tough and stands by her principles. She also knows the best way to hit people like Brett Ratner is in the wallet. She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops. They can’t have a movie rooted in women’s empowerment being part-financed by a man ­accused of sexual misconduct against women.” Ellen Page accuses Brett Ratner of outing her Ellen Page accuses Brett Ratner of outing her This past week, Warner Bros. announced it was severing ties with Ratner amid multiple sexual-harassment allegations leveled against him by actresses including Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge. Ratner has vehemently denied the allegations through his attorney, Marty Singer. Earlier this month, Gadot posted on Instagram: “Bullying and sexual harassment is unacceptable! I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out. Together we stand. We are all united in this time of change.” Reps for Gadot and Ratner did not comment. A rep for Warner Bros said only, “False.”

How You Doing??? FIRED: Wendy Williams Cleans House After Suspecting Staff Of Leaking Husband’s Infidelity Story....

Welp! It looks like Wendy Williams  kinda “knows” who leaked evidence to The Daily Mail, involving her husband’s alleged infidelities. All roads lead back to her Wendy Show staff, and according to The Jasmine Brand, Wendy just cleaned house just to be safe.... Wendy Williams (53) is cleaning house, terminating some of her employees that were allegedly responsible for leaking a recent story surrounding her and her husband manager, Kevin Hunter (46). Their source says: The story was 100% made up and Wendy knows the woman. It’s not true at all. Wendy found out who was behind the story and they were actually people from her staff. She fired anyone who was connected to the story because it was not only fake, but it showed how disloyal they were to her. She can’t trust someone who would do that to her. She fired a number of her staff, including some producers. Look, Wendy trusts her husband. She knows that women want him, especially more now than ever. She’s not letting any of this get to her. Do you think Wendy cleaning house in this scandal makes a difference? His name was on the young lady’s mailbox, allegedly. Thoughts?

Sylvester Stallone Announces He Will Direct Michael B. Jordan in ‘Creed 2’

Sylvester Stallone announced on Instagram that he will be directing “Creed 2.” “Looking forward to directing and Producing The incredibly talented Michael B Jordan in CREED 2 next year … One more Round!,” wrote Stallone..... Stallone has previously said he had completed writing the first draft of the script for “Creed 2” and hinted he is bringing back Dolph Lundgren’s Ivan Drago character (and presumedly his offspring) from “Rocky 4.” Last month Stallone also announced production would begin in 2018, although distributor MGM told Variety the project was still in development. In addition to writing and starring in the original “Rocky,” Stallone had directed four of the previous sequels, including “Rocky Balboa” — made 30 years after the original, when Stallone was 60 years old — which was assumed to bring closure to the successful franchise. Looking forward to directing and Producing The incredibly talented Michael B Jordan in CREED 2 next year ... One more Round ! #creed2 #mgm #fighting #workout #exercise #boxing A post shared by Sly Stallone (@officialslystallone) on Oct 9, 2017 at 5:59pm PDT Close to a decade later, writer/director Ryan Coogler — fresh of the success of his Sundance breakout “Fruitvale Station” — convinced Stallone to come back as Rocky. Ryan Coogler’s “Creed” was one of the smartest, most original franchise reboots to come out of Hollywood. Focusing on the estranged son (Jordan) of the late Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) — Rocky’s greatest opponent turned best friend — Coogler reinvented the mentor-boxer relationship at the heart of the “Rocky” films, while telling an African American boxing story in a franchise that was rooted in the lore of “The Great White Hope.” In addition to being a box office success, “Creed” also gave Stallone an incredible acting opportunity, as he went into the 2015 Academy Awards the favorite to win the Best Support Actor award, which went to Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies”). For his part, Coogler has become one of the busiest and most sought after directors in Hollywood since the success of “Creed.” While the buzz on his summer Marvel film “Black Panther” is off the charts, he is also preparing “Wrong Answer,” which will star Jordan and is based on script written by nonfiction author Ta-Nehisi Coates.

MAC Cosmetics Has Huge News For Nicki Minaj Fans....

If there’s one celebrity we can always count on to deliver the full-blown glam, it’s Nicki Minaj..... The rapper is known for regularly stepping out with a dramatic cat-eye, bold hairstyle, and brightly colored lipstick, which is what made her partnership with MAC Cosmetics back in 2012 so fitting. (If you recall, the lavender lipstick she created went toward the brand's Viva Glam foundation.) Now, Minaj is back at it again with a brand-new MAC collab — but this time, she's baring all. The collection of two lipsticks — which includes “Nicki’s Nude,” a beige with coral undertones, and “The Pinkprint,” a creamy pink-nude — will be hitting stores in September. And since MAC's nude shades, like Creme d’Nude and Myth, already have a cult following, you know these two colors are going to be killer. But the collaboration doesn’t stop there: Minaj took to Instagram to share even more news of the partnership. “Can’t wait to reveal this exciting news I'm working on for 2018!!!” she wrote in the caption. “It’s a first of its kind partnership for me and the OG M·A·C.” She also shared a sneak peek of the new products.
