Chris Harrison’s future with The Bachelor franchise remains in question after being criticized for defending racism in an Extra interview. Amid the uncertainty, The Sun is reporting his appearance on Celebrity Wheel of Fortune is at risk of being pulled from ABC’s schedule.

The game show sees celebrities competing to raise money for their charity of choice. The longtime host played for Feeding America, appearing alongside The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s Alfonso Ribeiro and Shark Tank’s Robert Herjavec.

According to The Sun, a production insider revealed Harrison’s episode was originally set to air on February 18, but was pushed to February 25.

“It was a network decision, not up to the Wheel Of Fortune producers,” the outlet quoted their source. “The network is going to play it by ear about what to do moving forward with hopes to air the episode as of right now on the 25th.”

Former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay interviewed Harrison on Extra. When she asked him about the racism accusations facing contestant Rachael Kirkconnell, he called for fans to give her “grace” and questioned if an antebellum-themed party would still be considered a “not a good look” in 2018. Kirkconnell has since apologized.

The insider continued, “There’s a big chance the episode will be scrapped entirely and not air at all. If they re-filmed, it would be with new celebrity contestants.”

Heavy did not receive a response after reaching out for an update.


Harrison Announced He Was ‘Stepping Aside’ as Bachelor Nation Host

Harrison issued an apology within 24 hours of the interview. Yet, the outcry continued. As a Change.org petition calling for his removal, Harrison issued a second apology.

“I have spent the last few days listening to the pain my words have caused, and I am deeply remorseful,” Harrison wrote in a statement he issued on Instagram. “My ignorance did damage to my friends, colleagues and strangers alike. I have no one to blame but myself for what I said the way I spoke. I set standards for myself, and have not met them. I feel that with every fiber of my being.”

He then revealed “this historic season of The Bachelor should not be marred or overshadowed by my mistakes or diminished by my actions,” announcing he would be “stepping aside for a period of time” as the host.

He noted he will not host the After the Final Rose special, though it remains who will take over as host or how long he will be out as host.


The Sun Is Reporting ABC Is Editing Harrison out of the Episodes

While Harrison has already filmed The Bachelor and the Women Tell All Special, The Sun is now reporting his role will be diminished through editing.

According to the outlet’s source, “Producers are currently working with editors to reduce the amount of screen time Chris has for the already-filmed episodes from the remainder of Matt’s season.”

While the insider described the production team as “scrambling” to reduce his role, “it’s impossible to take him out entirely with Chris’ participating in crucial scenes coming up.”

With the Women Tell All typically airing after Hometown Dates, which occurs this week, there are questions if they will air the special.

“Some producers suggested to not air the special but ABC isn’t going for that right now,” reported The Sun’s source. “There’s also a chance they may use a disclaimer before the remaining episodes saying the network does not condone his comments and will include a pledge to do better with handling racism on and off the show.”

Harrison will be seen on tonight’s episode of The Bachelor on ABC tonight at 8:00 p.m. Eastern.

Deion Sanders claims the title of Bassmaster Celebrity Fishing

Published

Lewisville, Texas — Lake Ray Roberts will be filled with the best fishermen in the world when the Bassmaster Classic, a super bowl of fishing, hits the water this weekend.

And Deion Sanders isn’t one of them.

The former Dallas Cowboys were just one of the celebrities who took part in the Bassmaster Celebrity Fishing Tournament on Wednesday at Lake Lewisville prior to Friday’s main event.

Sanders is joined by another former cowboy Marcus Spears, the famous Sheryl Swoopes basketball, country singer Jimmie Allen, and country duo Madi Andte.

Sanders didn’t interview, but he had a lot to say to Swoops.

“Look at her nails,” exclaimed Sanders, pointing at Swoops’ well-groomed hands. “Do you think she plans to touch the fish with those claws?”

Forget the fish. Like Sanders, all celebrity anglers threw a lot of bait before casting the line.

“I plan to win when the boat hits the water with me,” Spears said.

“He’s a former Cowboys fan, so he’s used to promising high and achieving low,” Allen joked.

Growing up fishing in Delaware, Allen doesn’t hate cowboys. He just wants to win.

“Someone has to lose and I don’t want it to be me,” he said.

Spears says it’s not him because he believes his time with the cowboys gives him a clear advantage.

“This lake is here,” he said, referring to Lake Lewisville. “I have been fishing this lake for 14 years.”

“So when was he last caught this lake,” Swoops asked. “The cause can be different.”

Unlike Bassmaster Classic, there are no trophies or prizes. Instead, the winner makes a donation to one charity of his choice.

But if the Spears win as he says, he says it’s with the Louisiana Boys and Girls Club …

“And my ego,” he said. “Yes, my ego. I’m not ashamed of it.”

But he would be ashamed of this: at £ 12, the eight-ounce fish Deion Sanders won.

It wasn’t the main event, but in Dion’s eyes it’s easy to believe it’s going down as a Bassmaster Classic.

The Bassmaster Classic will be held on Lake Ley Roberts from Friday to Sunday.

Simon Cowell Selling Haunted Houses | Celebrities

Simon Cowell sells his “ghostly” mansion.

The 61-year-old music tycoon, who recently bought a seven-bed property in southwest London and was recently granted permission to plan a refurbishment, has now changed his mind and put it on the market. ..

One source told The Sun in a newspaper on Sunday: “Simon loved the property when he bought it and had a list of changes and improvements.

“But he seems to have changed his mind, so he’s not on the market yet, but could soon be on sale again.”

According to former owner Christopher Levette, the luxury property Simon had planned to improve with an outdoor pool, bar, expanded sunroom and state-of-the-art security plagued the gay lover of Roman emperor Hadrian. It is reported that it has been done.

Hedge fund billionaires believed that they brought the soul of Hadrian’s lover Antinous to the statue in 2014, and although he donated the statue to the museum, strange sounds continued to be heard in the house.

He said earlier: “It was delivered in a crate.

“When I was locked, I heard Antinous knocking down a heavy object from the drawing room still lying in the box.

“The same thing happened the next two nights, but no one was there.”

“When the Christians lived there, the family heard an unexplained sound. There was a hump in the bedroom, and the next night there would be a sound downstairs,” added one source.
