Biden ended weeks of speculation about his choice on Tuesday (11Aug20) and made Harris the first woman of colour ever to run on a U.S. presidential ticket, and her celebrity fans were quick to share their delight.

John Legend tweeted, “Very happy for our friend and Senator and future Vice-President, @KamalaHarris, and very much looking forward to voting for the Biden-Harris ticket to begin the difficult work of recovering from this nightmare presidency and building an even better future.”

His wife Chrissy Teigen added, “f**k yes. excited to vote!! still amazed Election Day isn’t a national holiday. it needs to be celebrated, with a post vote bar crawl.”

Cher could not hide her excitement, raving, “THANK YOU GOD. WE ARE DANCING AROUND WITH JOY IN OUR (hearts)!! THIS IS A GREAT DAY FOR AMERICA!! WE HAVE BRAINS, & BEAUTY they (Republican rivals) have nothing.”

Mindy Kaling, who shares an Indian heritage with Harris, simply added, “@SenKamalaHarris !!!” with a long row of clapping hand emojis, while director Rob Reiner, a longtime vocal critic of current U.S. leader President Donald Trump, wrote, “Finally a Presidential ticket that looks like America!! Now we all go to work to restore the soul of our Nation. VOTE!!!!”

Other names signalling their approval of the historic selection included fervent Democrats Elizabeth Banks, Sara Bareilles, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sarah Paulson, Sophia Bush, Kevin McHale, Emmy Rossum, George Takei, and Ashley Judd.

Meanwhile, former leader Barack Obama released a lengthy statement in support of the new double act on social media, concluding, “This is a good day for our country. Now let’s go win this thing.”

And former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wrote, “I’m thrilled to welcome @kamalaharris to a historic Democratic ticket. She’s already proven herself to be an incredible public servant and leader. And I know she’ll be a strong partner to @joebiden. Please join me in having her back and getting her elected to a historic Democratic ticket.”

Jimmy Fallon | Chace Crawford snubbed Chippendales

Chace Crawford turned down the chance to join the Chippendales.

The former ‘Gossip Girl’ star was approached by an agent in the gym who asked him to try out to join the dance troupe, who are known for their striptease routines, but he politely declined the proposal.

Speaking during a virtual appearance on ‘The Tonight Show, he told host Jimmy Fallon: ”That actually is a true story. That was probably back in the first iPhone days…

”I’ve never gotten to fully tell it…I did turn it down.

”I lived in New York, it’s cold, I liked to work out at the gym in my building. Usually no one is ever up there, except this one guy, he would always be up there, you know, smelling good, tight clothes. I thought he was a trainer.”

The 35-year-old actor recalled the man approaching and asking if he was a ”model type”.

He quipped: ”I’m kind of like a work out alone no conversation type.

”I’m teasing, he was very nice.

”He asked me for some headshots…which I usually carry with me to the gym but didn’t have them that day.

”He goes, ‘Hey, I do this bootcamp if you’d like to try out for Chippendales.’ ”

Although Chace declined the approach, he joked that he’d ”really messed up” and should have taken the man up on the offer.

He said: ”This was pre-‘Magic Mike’ days. I really messed up, I should’ve done it.”

The ‘Boys’ actor previously admitted he finds it ”tiresome” that his good looks overshadow his acting talent.

Asked if it’s frustrating to have his talent overshadowed by his looks, he said: ”Well, it’s definitely strange. I guess there are worse problems to have, but it can be a little tiresome because I don’t like attention being drawn to me. I have a specific look and it’s my job to play against that.”

And Chace thinks his hunky good looks led to him being typecast when ‘Gossip Girl’ ended, making landing new jobs difficult.

He added: ”It’s frustrating when you know you’re not getting cast because you look… well, because you’re a heartthrob from this thing. I know this happens and it’s okay.”

The country star and her co-host Melissa Peterman have recorded 12 episodes of ‘Living and Learning with Reba McEntire’ with other guests including Kristin Chenoweth, Dolly Parton and Jane Fonda.

Reba McEntire wants to snag a chat with multiple Emmy Award winner Dan Levy for her new podcast.

The country star and her “Living & Learning with Reba McEntire” co-host Melissa Peterman have already scored big chats with the likes of “9 to 5” stars Dolly Parton and Jane Fonda, but they now want the “Schitt’s Creek” co-creator and star, who was the toast of the Primetime Emmys on Sunday night, September 20.

“He’s so funny,” she tells Billboard. “Bette Midler, I would love to have on (too). Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood would be a lot of fun. I’m such a fan of entertainment.”

Reba and Melissa have already recorded 12 episodes, with other guests including Kristin Chenoweth and bestselling author Glennon Doyle, and the singer admits the series has forced her to brush up on hot-button 2020 topics like “cancel culture” and issues such as “rejection and how to deal with it” and “manners” for shows.

But it’s not all serious when she and Melissa get behind the microphone – they end each session with a fun question-and-answer segment, asking guests things like: “Would you rather get pooped on or barfed on?.”

McEntire insists the silliness is intended to bring a little joy to what has been a difficult year for so many.

“You got a happy attitude and a little humor in it at all times,” she says.

“Living & Learning with Reba McEntire” debuted on Monday, September 21. Tune in to the first two episodes here: https://open.spotify.com/episode/0UoDFAZCnO8cIhXIXtSeoD.
