At first glance, the concept for Tiger King just seemed so out of left field. However, it’s really resonated with viewers and there are plenty of pop culture ties to this cast. Those alligators that died in the fire used to belong to Michael Jackson. Doc Antle was a part of Britney Spears’ performance during the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards. And there are probably some more links between these big cat enthusiasts and pop culture that we haven’t even realized yet.
In the Netflix series itself, NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal appeared with Joe Exotic at the GW Zoo. He publicly supported the zoo and he even donated money. However, he’s changed his stance after watching Tiger King.
It is still hard to believe that Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and seven others lost their lives in that horrific helicopter crash a month ago. Yesterday, there was a televised celebration of life at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Kobe’s wife Vanessa Bryant, Michael Jordan, Shaq, and many others did speeches to share their memories of Kobe and Gianna. Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, and Alicia Keyes performed. It was a very nice event that inspired many emotional responses, even from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills OG cast member Camille Grammer. She managed to turn the nice accolades about Kobe as a father into a dig at her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer.
The 2019 Super Bowl was underwhelming. It could have been the low-scoring game. Or maybe people are just tired of the New England Patriots winning everything. And then there was the Super Bowl Half Time show with Adam Levine’s many layers of clothing. That was…. interesting, as in not really.
Nevertheless, there were a lot of fun parties in Atlanta during Super Bowl weekend with plenty of reality TV stars in attendance. There are also some reality stars who watched the Super Bowl at home.
