'MRS. DOUBTFIRE' SEQUEL WON'T INCLUDE MARA WILSON
The newly announced sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire that is in the works will probably be short at least one cast member from the original film. Mara Wilson, who played Robin Williams' youngest daughter in the film, took to Twitter on Thursday (April 17th) to address her involvement.
She wrote, "For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, nor will I. I've been in some mediocre movies, but I've never been in a sequel. And I have no interest in being in one now. Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to end. I'm glad I had the chance to be in it, and I'm proud of what we did, but I don't see how we could do it again. There are many, many reasons I don't want to be in Mrs. Doubtfire 2. But they haven't even asked me (yet), so no need to worry. They haven't asked me to be in it, and I think it would be weird if they did! I don't act much and am not a cute little kid anymore. I loved being in Doubtfire, and I'm grateful every day I had that experience. I met my sister-for-life Lisa there. I had a great time. But I don't think a sequel makes sense plotwise, and I don't think there'd be a part for me even if I did still act and was interested."
- Wilson previously discussed her decision to quit acting to Us Weekly saying, "Film acting is not very fun. Doing the same thing over and over again until, in the director's eyes, you 'get it right', does not allow for very much creative freedom. The best times I had on film sets were the times the director let me express myself, but those were rare."
- TMZ spoke with Matthew Lawrence, who played Robin's son in the 1993 comedy, who told the website, "Of course I would be on board. I hope they make the second as good as the first. The first was so good."
- Lisa Jakub, who played the eldest daughter Lydia, wrote on her Facebook page, "No one involved with the movie has contacted me and I don't know any more than you do about the details. Lots of people are asking if I would do it - and my answer is a really solid "I don't know." It's really hard to comment on something you have no information about. I'm not sure if my character would still be hanging out with the rest of the Hillards. I'm pretty sure Lydia would be a lawyer, living in some remote part of the world, defending the downtrodden and sneering at the bad guys."
SETH ROGEN CALLS NANCY GRACE A DUMBASS ON TWITTER
Nancy Grace managed to get on Seth Rogen's bad side on Wednesday (April 16th) after posting several anti-marijuana tweets. Seth seemed to have enough of Nancy's antic after she posted three tweets using the hashtag #pottoblame in reference to a story about a man who allegedly shot his wife after eating weed.
The TV host wrote, "Cops say daddy eats marijuana & goes crazy. He shoots his wife in the head while she pleads with 9-1-1 for help! #PotToBlame? If pot makes you mellow and laid back, why does this guy allegedly turn berserk and gun down his wife? #PotToBlame? How many people must die before this stops?! #PotToBlame?"
- Seth responded by writing, "@NancyGraceHLN you are a f***ing dumbass."
- Nancy shot back with, ".@Sethrogen hi seth! thx for watching!"

NEW YORK KNICKS SIGN LAMAR ODOM

- Khloe Kardashian's former beau recently played for Spanish basketball team Baskonia for two games before he was ruled unfit to play due to a back injury. He was forced to break the two-month contract he signed with the team. He said in a statement at the time, "I am going to try and get back on the court and give you guys a show."

- Odom's last stint playing in the NBA was during the 2012-2013 season for the L.A. Clippers.
REPORT: NAYA RIVERA AND LEA MICHELE ARE FEUDING ON 'GLEE'
Things are reportedly getting a little tense on the set of Glee. TMZ is reporting that Naya Rivera and Lea Michele allegedly recently butt heads leading one of them to storm off set.
Some sources tell the website that Lea supposedly pulled some diva antics on Tuesday (April 15th) and held everyone up which apparently prompted Naya to have a chat with producers about how much her co-star was pissing everyone off. Lea caught wind of the conversation and left work. Other sources claim that their characters weren't even shooting scenes together that day and the truth is that Naya was sent away.
- Multiple sources have also told the website that Naya was fired from the show which is being denied by sources close to her.
- Gossip Cop spoke to insiders who insist there is no bad blood on set and that Naya was upset about things before showing up to filming -- none of which had anything to do with Lea.

James recently had some Instagram trouble when he was supposedly flirting with an underage girl whom he met after a performance of his show.
