Brooke Shields recalls famous ex 'smashing' trophies because of her 'Friends' cameo, more news

Not so friendly

Brooke Shields’ 1996 cameo on “Friends” cased a huge rift with boyfriend Andre Agassi, so much so that he “smashed all of his trophies.” “Andre was in the audience supporting me, and he stormed out,” she told The New Yorker. “He said, ‘Everybody’s making fun of me. You made a fool of me by that behavior.'” As result of his anger, the tennis legend “smashed all his trophies,” she claimed. Brooke and Andre were married for two years, from 1997 to 1999. In the “Friends” episode, Brooke plays Erika Ford, a woman infatuated with Dr. Drake Ramoray from “Days of Our Lives,” an alter ego of Matt LeBlanc’s Joey Tribianni character. “In the scene, I’m supposed to lick Joey’s fingers, because they’re the hands of a genius, and I want to devour them, and I’m a nut. [Matt] was cute – he was, like, ‘I’ve washed my hands and they’re all clean.’ I was, like, ‘I had a mint!,'” Brooke recalled. Andre wasn’t feeling it, which caused a problem. “I’m, like, ‘It’s comedy! What is the matter with you?’ I learned later that he was addicted to crystal meth at that point, so that irrational behavior I’m sure had something to do with that,” she said. “It was petulant behavior. It co-opted [‘Friends’] for me emotionally, because all of a sudden then my focus went to him.”

Baby steps

Nearly three months after being run over by a snowplow, which resulted in more than 30 broken bones, Jeremy Renner is walking again… with assistance. On Sunday, March 26, the “Avengers” star posted a video to his Instagram Stories that shows him walking on a treadmill with 40 percent of his body weight. “Now is the time for my body to rest and recover from my will,” he wrote over the video. What’s next for Jeremy is up in the air. Earlier this month doubt was cast on his career. “Although he does still love acting, Hollywood is just not a priority to him anymore,” a source told “Jeremy believes that he survived the accident so that he can use his platform to really create change in the world. He is very proud of the work that he has done, but this entire situation has really shown him that there is so much more that he could be doing to help others.”

Bam Margera will now see his son every time he looks in the mirror. The former MTV star got his son’s name, Phoenix, tattooed above his eyebrow in Arabic. TMZ said the troubled prankster had the design on his phone when he walked into the Tribal Roots Tattoo Studio in Escondido, Calif. Bam didn’t tell the shop he was coming in ahead of time. The one-time reality TV star, who has struggled with addiction for years, has has familial problems of late. In February, his wife Nikki Boyd filed for legal separation after claiming Bam had a non-sober visit with their son. “I miss Phoenix the wolf so much I had to get his name tattooed on my f****** face to remind Nikki she is breaking my heart by not letting me see him,” she wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post. 

Arrest stories

James Cromwell is in trouble with the law often… He just doesn’t know how often. While speaking to Page Six, the actor was asked about the amount of times he’s been arrested. “Oh, I lose track,” he said. “Seven or eight times, maybe more.” James,  83, has been a longtime supporter of animal rights and is often involved in PETA protests. His most recent arrest came in May 2022 when he superglued his hand to a Starbucks counter to protest the coffee chain’s surcharge for vegan milks. “The glue was fun. I had a lot of fun with that one,” he said. James’ arrest record spans over 20 years. 

Nashville thoughts

It’s another sad day in America. On Monday, March 27, three children were shot dead at a Christian elementary school in Nashville, Tenn. The 28-year-old suspect was shot and killed by police. After the shooting, many in Hollywood reacted with rage. “It’s real simple… gun safety laws equals less gun violence,” Billy Baldwin tweeted. “The GOP & NRA have the blood of the children at Covenant Christian on their hands.” Peter Frampton wrote, “School shooting in Nashville pre k through 6th grade. Children, babies!!! It IS the f****** guns!” George Takei added, “The Governor just called the school shooting in Tennessee a ‘tragic situation.’ Think about that.”
