Us Weekly claims Partridge Family star David Cassidy is battling dementia. He tells the magazine: ”I was in denial, but part of me always knew this was coming.

David tells the Daily Mail: “I want to focus on what I am, who I am and how I’ve been without any distractions. I want to love. I want to enjoy life. As people are now living well into their 80s, the cases of dementia and Alzheimer’s are on the increase. My mother has been in 24-hour nursing care for seven years now, and I’m lucky to be able to afford it, but many people aren’t that lucky. People don’t really want to talk about it, but we need to, which is why I’m going to be speaking publicly about it.”
Naughty Gossip claims SNL wants Melissa McCarthy to be a regular on the show. A source tells the site: “Melissa performance on SNL playing White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was the best thing on the show in years. And now the show’s boss Lorne Michaels is trying to convince her to be a regular guest playing Spicer. They know Alec is already getting bored and Melissa would be the perfect replacement. Her Spicer imitation was meant to be just a one-of, but the response has been so big, they want her to come back as often as she wants.”
Keanu Reeves tells Yahoo Movies that he is open to doing another Matrix movie. The Wachowskis would have to be involved. They would have to write it and direct it. And then we’d see what the story is, but yeah, I dunno, that’d be weird, but why not? People die, stories don’t, people in stories don’t.”
Naughty Gossip claims Caitlyn Jenner reportedly got a $4 million advance for her upcoming memoir. A source tells the site: “The book is called ‘My Secret Life’ but Caitlyn has already told so much of her story in an ABC primetime special with Diane Sawyer and on her own E! reality show that there isn’t that much to tell. When the deal was signed there was still so much that we didn’t know about her and Bruce Jenner’s past. That isn’t true anymore. The publishers are really worried about this book. Everyone in the industry thinks they paid way too much.”
PAUL MCCARTNEY and RINGO STARR worked in the studio together for the first time in seven years. It’s unclear exactly what they did, but it sounds like Paul played some bass for Ringo’s next album.
