Sucks to be you:
We told 'ya last week, (RBR 11.12.14) that BRUCE JENNER and his son, BURT, were planning to compete in a very dangerous race called the Baja 1000 and the duo is out of the running. TMZ.com reports KRIS JENNER's estranged hubby veered off into a ditch around mile 170, ripped off the power steering line on the vehicle and they lost too many hours waiting for help to arrive.
If you're keeping track at home, investors sunk a cool million-bucks into the battered, high-end, off-road vehicle. (Lee)
TV Land has pulled the plug on its series "Hot in Cleveland" after six seasons. The Hollywood Reporter says the series averaged 2.4 million viewers while earning star BETTY WHITE an Emmy nomination along with two Screen Actors Guild Awards.
You'll probably be able to see re-runs of the show, somewhere, because it's already produced 100 episodes, usually considered the benchmark to put the show into syndication.
LADY GAGA will do a live stream of the final show on her ART-RAVE: The ARTPOP Ball tour. The Live Nation channel on Yahoo Screen has it for free on November 24th at 1:45PM Eastern from the Palais Omnisports de Paris Bercy in France. This is no ordinary show. It takes six hours to put the stage together and another three to take it all down. Gaga needs five people just to take care of her wardrobe changes. (Marino)
