Michael Strahan Forced To Give-Up Endorsements For “Good Morning America”

Michael Strahan’s new gig on “Good Morning America” will give him a big fat salary, but it doesn’t come without a cost.

ABC has told him he has to give-up his endorsement deals with Pizza Hut and Metamucil in order to remain “impartial” in regards to broadcasting the news.

But don’t worry – Michael’s lost endorsement money isn’t really gone.  ABC will compensate Michael for it in his new (undisclosed) salary.  Michael joins “Good Morning America” this fall.


Cool Your Jets, People -- Dolly Parton Isn't Endorsing Anybody for President

In a statement to the New York Times last month , DOLLY PARTON said that it would be "wonderful" if we had a female president, and that HILLARY CLINTON is "qualified" for the job. 

Everyone took that as an endorsement, so she released a statement saying she's NOT endorsing Hillary, or DONALD TRUMP, quote, "But seriously, I haven't decided who I'm voting for, but no matter what, we're going to be suffering from PMS, Presidential Mood Swings."

Katy Perry Bumps Into Ex John Mayer On Date


Katy Perry and her boyfriend, Orlando Bloom, had a night on the town this weekend, but their “date night” took an unexpected turn when they bumped into Katy’s ex, John Mayer.

Katy and Orlando were eating at the “Tower Bar” in West Hollywood, when John walked in.

Fortunately, we’re talking about adults here and there was no drama. Katy and John exchanged pleasantries while Orlando looked on, apparently unfazed.
