Here's the Scoop...

The Rolling Stones canceled Wednesday's show at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas as Mick Jagger reveals he's come down with "bad laryngitis."

"I'm so sorry about the cancellation of Wednesday's show in Las Vegas, I've got bad laryngitis," Jagger posted on Twitter. "I do apologise to everyone who bought tickets."

The band's next performance this Saturday, also in Vegas, is currently scheduled to go on as normal.

Laryngitis, eh? Not a broken hip or misplaced dentures or a Matlock marathon than needs watching? Okay, Mick. I believe you.

Be Well,
Steve

Billy Bush ousted by NBC as 'Today' co-host over Trump tape
Television personality Billy Bush will not return to NBC's Today for his part in an audio recording from 2005 that contains GOP candidate Donald Trump making insensitive remarks about women, the network said Monday.

Senior Vice President Noah Oppenheim confirmed the departure Monday in an internal memorandum to employees at NBC.

"While he was a new member of the Today team, he was a valued colleague and longtime member of the broader NBC family," the memo said. "We wish him success as he goes forward."

Bush has been under fire for the audio recording for more than a week, and has been on suspension from NBC.

On the tape, Trump is heard telling Bush during an interview for Access Hollywood about how being rich and famous allows people to make sexual advances on women, whether they want it or not.

"I just start kissing them, it's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it," Trump said. "You can do anything."

Trump also seemed to advocate further advances, including "grabbing" women's genitals.

The discussion was not part of the actual TV interview, but rather a "hot mic" moment between the two as they talked off the record.

The tape has inflicted catastrophic damage on Trump's presidential campaign, and now Bush's employment with NBCUniversal.

Bush was caught up in the scandal because he is heard on the tape laughing, seemingly unconcerned, at Trump's comments.

"Obviously I'm embarrassed and ashamed. It's no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago," Bush said after the tape's release on Oct. 7 by The Washington Post. "I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I'm very sorry."

Bush joined Today as a co-host in August. In July, he was the interviewer to whom disgraced swimmer Ryan Lochte told that he'd been robbed at gunpoint at the Summer Olympics in Brazil.

Trump has apologized for the tape, saying, "nobody has more respect for women than me," and claimed that the discussion is no different than numerous others heard in locker rooms across the country.

Former late night host Carson Daly has replaced Bush on Today.

'Scandal' star Kerry Washington welcomes second child
Scandal star Kerry Washington has reportedly welcomed baby No. 2.

The 39-year-old actress, who plays Olivia Pope on the ABC series, quietly welcomed son Caleb Kelechi with husband Nnamdi Asomugha on Oct. 5, according to E! News.

Washington and Asomugha, a 35-year-old retired NFL player, married in Hailey, Idaho, in 2013. The actress gave birth to their first child, daughter Isabelle, in 2014, and confirmed her second pregnancy in May.

"I look a little curvier than usual," she told Entertainment Tonight the next month. "We're all really excited. We'll see how it all plays out. I'm an only child, so I'm like, 'What's this going to be like?' But I think it's going to be great."

"I'll be going back to work in July," the star added. "I'll be waddling my way around [Olivia Pope & Associates]."

Scandal completed a fifth season in May and will return for Season 6 in 2017. Washington said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in September that they were coming up with creative ways to hide her pregnancy.

"[We're using] big coats, big bags. Hiding behind body parts of different actors," she revealed. "If I'm in the back of the room, it can be, like, somebody's leg and I'm positioned behind it. Lamps are good. Vases."

Which former 'Beverly Hills 90210' heartthrob celebrated his 50th birthday with AARP Magazine cover?

Luke Perry recently celebrated his 50th birthday and marked the occasion with an appearance on the cover of AARP Magazine.

Perry, who played Dylan McKay on the 1990s series, hit his milestone birthday on Oct. 11 and AARP responded by tweeting the image of its "special birthday cover" featuring Perry.

Though Perry was well into his 20s when the show began in 1990, fans still had a hard time believing the actor is now a half a century old.

"So... Luke Perry is on the cover of AARP magazine as its newest member. Does anyone else feel sick right now?" tweeted TV host Marc Lamont Hill.

Up next for Perry is a role on the CW's Riverdale, based on the Archie comics.

Perry is set to play Archie's dad, Fred Andrews, in the series which is slated for January or February 2017.
