Full COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID test results will be required to attend the event.
Chrissy Teigen has reportedly lost another business deal in the wake of her cyberbullying scandal.
Page Six says Bloomingdale’s “walked away from a deal” with the model at the “11th hour” after Courtney Stodden (who uses gender-neutral pronouns) revealed that Chrissy had encouraged them to kill themselves in private messages when they were just 16.
An insider of the department store says, “They pretty much had [the deal] together … but had to cancel it.
Last week, Chrissy apologized to Courtney, tweeting, “Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past [crap] in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be.” Last week Macy’s dropped Chrissy’s cookware line apparently over the same issue.
Mickey and Minnie are ready to see more smiling faces. Disneyland has bumped capacity to 35-percent as coronavirus cases drop. Even better, anyone can visit starting next month. Right now, only those living in California are allowed. But the state will remove its tier system on June 15th. The theme park still requires a ticket and reservation, with the first few weeks of July now on sale. Annual passes return at the end of the year.
