After Price Surge, Sarah Jessica Parker Stops Plugging EpiPen

(NEW YORK) -- Sarah Jessica Parker is ending her relationship with Mylan, the company that makes the life-saving allergy medication-injecting EpiPen, after the company raised the price of its product to more than 500 bucks.  The price hike represents a 450-percent increase since the company began selling the product in 2007 -- turning it into a "billion-dollar business," Bloomberg Businessweek reports.  Parker had taken part in a promotional campaign touting the medicine's use in counteracting the severe allergic reaction known as anaphylaxis.  Calling the EpiPen a "lifesaving necessity" for people like James Wilkie, her peanut-allergic son with Matthew Broderick, Parker blasted Mylan.

Is the "Beef" Between Vin Diesel and The Rock Part of a WWE Promo?

(NEW YORK) -- As many wrestling fans had been speculating, the purported beef between Fast & Furious stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Vin Diesel is all part of a calculated lead-up to a WWE wrestling match between the pair to promote their upcoming Fast 8 -- at least, according to Life and Style magazine. The tabloid says the widely reported on-set static that led Rock to put certain "candy a**" co-stars on blast on Instagram is in fact, "a publicity stunt to amp up drama for a WWE wrestling match and to help promote the April 2017 release of Fast 8." Diesel quickly outed himself as said candy-canned co-worker,…
