Blue Ivy Carter scolds her grandmother for filming in Paris
She shushed Beyonce and JAY-Z when she thought their clapping was too loud at the Grammys back in January, so it should come as no surprise that when Blue Ivy Carter's grandma disregarded the no filming rule at what appeared to be the Paris Opera House, the 6-year-old shut Tina Knowles Lawson down, stat. Tina shared a video this week that showed her whispering about how she was in "the most beautiful theater I've ever seen in my life" for a "walking ballet." She didn't get much further that that before her granddaughter's small voice surfaced in the background: "You're not supposed to take video, grandma," Blue could be heard saying (via E! News). "You're not supposed to. Tina continued to pan the theater, seemingly unfazed by Blue's admonishing tsk-tsk. But she did share the clip later, captioning it, "When you are trying to sneak a video 😂."

Chrissy Teigen may now officially return to tormenting Donald Trump on Twitter
A federal judge ruled that Donald Trump can no longer block his haters on Twitter simply because their political views differ from his. Upon hearing the news, Chrissy Teigen — who has boasted that she's publicly hated on the Donald since long before his presidency, went directly to Twitter with a little shoulder-tap for her old pal. Donald blocked Chrissy last year after she told him on Twitter that the reason Republicans weren't "protecting their President," as he put it, was that "no one likes you." "Hmmm," Chrissy said in a video she posted this week showing news of the ruling on TV. "Well well well we meet again @realDonaldTrump." This should be fun.

Amy Poehler says the whole cast would be into a reboot of 'Parks and Rec'
"Making It," a new reality show helmed by former "Parks and Rec" costars Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, is coming July 31, but when the pair stopped by "Ellen" this week, the show host asked the one question that's likely to be burning in the minds of most folks who tune into their new show: Will we ever get a remake of their old one? Turns out the answer is a very definite "yes" — at least from Leslie Knope's perspective. E! News reports the cast have all stayed in touch since "Parks and Rec" aired its finale in 2015. Natalie Morale even used Amy's "Smart Girls" web series as a platform on which to come out as gay to her fans. Given the success of the "Will & Grace" reboot featuring Nick's wife, Megan Mullally, Ellen wondered if Nick and Amy might follow suit. "We just had a fitting earlier. We said that if Beyoncé would play the mayor, we'll bring the show back," Nick Joked, before clarifying, "This is Beyoncé Knowles, the singer, the entertainer." Amy added: "I'll speak for everybody and say we would all do it. I think we'd all do it someday, it'd be amazing." Quipped Nick: "Amy's the boss of the show so …"

Julianna Margulies defends Matt Damon on sexual misconduct comments
Julianna Margulies agrees with Matt Damon that when it comes to sexual harassment and misconduct, "there is a spectrum of behavior." Though Matt has apologized and promised to keep his lips zipped on the matter going forward, Julianne recently told Katie Couric on her podcast that the actor said nothing wrong, in her opinion. " I understood what he was saying. He was completely compassionate about what was going with people who are raping, but it's not the same as what's going on with people who are joking around on a set," Julianna said, according to Page Six. "You have to differentiate between what's acceptable and what's not acceptable. The dialogue has been opened, finally, after all these years. The reason the pendulum swung so far was that women, it's been bubbling under the surface and this tiny little opening happened, and we all just ran out of that one ripped seam." She added that women have been guilty of abusing their power as well, saying she thinks more of those stories will start coming out soon. Matt and his pal Ben Affleck recently pledged to use inclusion riders in contracts coming out of their production company.

This week in Throwback Thursday news … Jason Bateman found himself apologizing for comments he made in a recent interview with members of the cast of "Arrested Development" for the New York Times. In the interview, it was revealed that Jeffrey Tambor once went ballistic on his costar, Jessica Walter, on the set of the show. Although no details were given , Jessica reportedly became tearful in reliving the incident, which both she and Jeffrey said they put behind them following the actor's apology. In rehashing the issue, however, Jason Bateman said, "Not to belittle it or excuse it or anything, but in the entertainment industry it is incredibly common to have people who are, in quotes, 'difficult.'" He continued in such a way that Alia Shawkat interrupted to point out that just because something "happens all the time," it's not automatically acceptable. A backlash ensued, with celebs like Thomas Sadoski and others slamming Jason for his seeming defense of Jeffrey. On Thursday, May 24, Jason tweeted an apology. "I realize that I was wrong here," he posted (via Us Weekly). "I sound like I'm condoning yelling at work. I do not. It sounds like I'm excusing Jeffrey. I do not. It sounds like I'm insensitive to Jessica. I am not. … I'm incredibly embarrassed and deeply sorry to have done that to Jessica. This is a big learning moment for me."

David Cross has a (faux) tantrum and storms off 'The Late Show'
David Cross stopped by "Late Show" this week to chat with Stephen Colbert and while the two were sharing comedy writing ghosts stories of yore — they worked on "The Dana Carvey Show" at the same time — David became ego-hurt when he realized Stephen didn't remember any of his work from that era. In a clip published by Vulture the bruised ego turns to tears for David at one point, sparking him to storm off backstage in a whimpering huff. That's when Stephen, jokingly desperate to win back the love of his guest (or maybe just to get a guest on the show) offered some good, old-fashioned superlative-laden compliments to David. "If anything, what I remember is just hoping you would think anything I said was funny, and the fact that you remembered something I said and thought it was funny means a lot to me," Stephen said. "And I just want to say that everything I've ever seen you do, with the exception of the guy in 'Men in Black,' was really funny!" (Kinda with ya on the morgue attendant thing in "Men In Black," Stephen.) Eventually, David and Stephen hugged it out. Aw. This could be the start of a beautiful bromance …
