Show Biz Buzz 7/11: Jeopardy James, Jay Z, and Jessica Simpson!

James Holzhauer is returning to "Jeopardy!"

The contestant, who made headlines this year for his incredible 32-game winning streak on the game show, winning over 2 million dollars, will be joined by 14 other contestants to compete in the Tournament of Champions. Jeopardy James will come face-to-face with Chicagoan librarian, Emma Boettcher, who ended his run. The competitors are all after the $250,000 grand prize when the 10-day event airs in November. Jeopardy James is the second person to win over $2 million behind Ken Jennings.

Jay-Z— billionaire rapper, producer, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and Beyoncé's husband— will serve as the chief brand strategist for Caliva, a California cannabis company that counts former star NFL quarterback Joe Montana as an investor. He’ll influence Caliva's creative direction, and be involved in outreach programs — such as job training, to help create more opportunities in the industry for people who were negatively affected by the War on Drugs. He wants to increase the economic participation of citizens returning from incarceration.

Jessica Simpson is writing a memoir….. a press release says, "Her new book will be a candid, inspiring, and behind-the-scenes look at how she chose to learn from each difficult moment, evolve musically, become a fearless businesswoman." She’ll also dish on her first marriage to Nick Lachey. Remember on their reality show when she thought Chicken of the Sea was chicken…not tuna? I might leave that out if I was her…
