Here's the Scoop...

Any 'Game of Thrones' fans or 'Carpool Karaoke' fans out there? Well, this may interest you...

Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams have received a Game of Thrones-style opening for their upcoming episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series.

The actresses who portray sisters Sansa and Arya Stark on the HBO fantasy drama, will be appearing together on Carpool Karaoke: The Series to sing classic songs on Tuesday.

The opening to that episode, released Sunday, mimics the signature opening of Game of Thrones with a 3D map showing multiple areas with buildings emerging from the ground.

As the GoT theme song plays on, other guests who are featured on the series such as John Legend, Alicia Keys, Metallica, Ariana Grande, Gwyneth Paltrow, Will Smith and executive producer James Corden are also shown.

The map ends on Austin, Texas where Turner and Williams filmed their episode of Carpool Karaoke. A trailer for the series version of the Late Late Show segment, released recently, featured Turner and Williams riding a mechanical dragon.

New episodes of Carpool Karaoke: The Series premiere weekly through Apple Music.

I don't watch either, but they both seem quite popular. I'm busy watching 'Matlock'.

Be Well,
Steve

Charlotte Flair says dad Ric Flair is 'getting better'
WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair, the daughter of wrestling legend Ric Flair, has given another health update on her father on Instagram as he continues to be hospitalized.

"After an incredibly hard week, my dad is getting better," Charlotte wrote Sunday alongside a black and white photo of her hand holding onto Ric's.

"There is still a long road to go and he's not out of the woods just yet but I want to again thank everyone for their support on behalf of myself and my family," she continued.

"My dad has given his life to sports entertainment. To everyone competing tonight, you know he'd be backstage watching if he could. Give it a little extra flair for him tonight. Woooo!" Charlotte wrote in reference to WWE presenting their signature August event Sunday, SummerSlam. Charlotte was not featured in the event and did not compete in any matches.

Ric was hospitalized earlier in August with his representative Melinda Morris Zanoni asking fans on Twitter for "prayers & positive energy" as he dealt with "tough medical issues." WWE acknowledged the 68-year-old had undergone surgery, but was unable to comment on what exactly necessitated the hospital stay.

Recently, Charlotte shared a family photo of Ric and noted that her dad was a "fighter."

On Saturday, Zanoni tweeted that Ric was awake and talking. "Happy 2 report @RicFlairNatrBoy is awake, communicating & progressing..but there are complications so needs rest for the 1st time in 40 yrs," she wrote alongside tweets thanking fans for their support and stating that Ric had cut a promo on the nurse.


Lady Antebellum singer Hillary Scott expecting twins
Lady Antebellum singer Hillary Scott is expecting twins.

The 31-year-old recording artist confirmed she's having twins in an Instagram post Friday after the Lady Antebellum account announced she's pregnant and expecting with husband Chris Tyrrell.

"God has answered our family's countless prayers! Our family is growing...Chris, Eisele, and I wanted to share our DOUBLE portion of joy with you all!" Scott captioned a slideshow of photos of her family.

"We appreciate the love and prayers in the coming weeks as we wait (somewhat patiently if you're Chris and I, and impatiently if you're Eisele) for these precious BABIES to arrive. Yep, babies! We are having TWINS!" she said. "It's truly a miracle."

Scott and Tyrrell, who married in 2012, are already parents to 4-year-old daughter Eisele. The singer went public in June 2016 about having a miscarriage the previous fall.

"Because we've been so open about our last pregnancy loss and journey, I want to be fully transparent with you that this happened naturally. Chris nor I have any family history of twins that we can find and are just resting in the profound gift this truly is," she said.

"My heart still grieves for our loss and all who are struggling with pregnancy and infant loss and infertility," the star confessed. "God hears every prayer and I will continue."

The Lady Antebellum account announced Friday morning that both Scott and her bandmate Dave Haywood are expecting children in the winter. Haywood has his second child -- a baby girl -- on the way with wife Kelli Haywood.

"Well, #BabyBellum round 2 is on the way! We're thrilled to announce the Haywoods are welcoming a girl this December, AND the Tyrrells are expecting in February 2018!!" the country group wrote.

President Trump and first lady Melania won't attend Kennedy Center Honors
U.S. President Donald Trump and his wife Melania will not attend as planned the upcoming Kennedy Center Honors.

"The President and First Lady have decided not to participate in this year's activities to allow the honorees to celebrate without any political distraction," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement to Variety Saturday. "First Lady Melania Trump, along with her husband President Donald J. Trump, extend their sincerest congratulations and well wishes to all of this year's award recipients for their many accomplishments."

"The Kennedy Center respects the decision made today by the office of the President of the United States. In choosing not to participate in this year's Honors activities, the Administration has graciously signaled its respect for the Kennedy Center and ensures the Honors gala remains a deservingly special moment for the Honorees," Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein and President Deborah F. Rutter said in their own joint statement. "We are grateful for this gesture."

Carmen de Lavallade, Gloria Estefan, LL Cool J, Norman Lear and Lionel Richie were to be recognized Dec. 3 at a gala show at the Kennedy Center, and reception and dinner at the White House. The Trumps had been confirmed to attend all of the events.

Lear, a renowned television producer, announced earlier this month he would go to the ceremony, but not the White House because he does not support the president.

"I could never turn my back on the @kencen. It represents the Arts and Humanities which mean everything to me," Lear tweeted. "Of course, I'm accepting the honors. What I'm not accepting is the @WhiteHouse reception with @realDonaldTrump."

Members of an Obama-era presidential arts advisory committee resigned their service under Trump on Friday in response to his comments about racial violence in Charlottesville, Va

Trump said counter-protesters -- as well as members of the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and other hate groups that descended on Charlottesville for a "Unite the Right" rally -- contributed to the violence that erupted, leading to the death of a counter-protester, allegedly at the hands of a rally attendee.

"The false equivalencies you push cannot stand," the arts advisory committee members wrote. "We cannot sit idly by, the way that your West Wing advisors have, without speaking out against your words and actions."
