Even Rihanna’s in town for the Oscars. Well, not specifically for the Oscars. But the action is definitely in LA this weekend and RiRi’s always down for a party and a basketball game, especially when LeBron James is playing.

No. Though set in the world of the WWE, and based on the life story of professional wrestler Saraya-Jade Bevis, known in the ring as “Paige”, Fighting with My Family is a classic sports underdog story.
