The King Of Pop started his career alongside his brothers as a member of the Jackson Five, but Michael Jackson came from a family of 10 brothers and sisters. Find out more about all of his siblings here!
Michael Jacksonwas one of the most influential figures in pop music history. At just six-years-old, he burst onto the scene as a member of The Jackson Five, where he rose to stardom with hits like “ABC” and “I Want You Back.” He started a solo career in 1971 and skyrocketed into superstardom on his own with his 1982 bestselling album Thriller. After Thriller, Michael scored many more hits on his own, but the foundation was laid alongside his brothers in The Jackson Five, and many of his other siblings went on to successful careers in their own rites.
Coming from the show-biz family, Michael had a strong bond with his siblings growing up, especially in the intensely busy musical group. “Well, you don’t get to do things that other children get to do, having friends and slumber parties and buddies. There were none of that for me. I didn’t have friends when I was little. My brothers were my friends,” he once said, via BrainyQuote. While Michael died in 2009 at age 50 almost of all of his siblings are still alive to continue his legacy. Find out more about all of his brothers and sisters here.

The eldest of the Jackson brothers Sigmund (better known as Jackie Jackson), 70, was born in 1951. He was one of the founding members of the Jackson Five, and he was also one of the band’s lead singers, due to his high-pitched, tenor singing voice. Jackie later released two solo albums, first a self-titled album in 1973 and a sophomore album in 1989, called Be The One. Most recently, he dropped a collaboration with the musician Brezz titled Big City After Dark in 2007.

Tito has three sons of his own Toriano Adaryll Jackson Jr., Taryll Adren Jackson, and Tito Joe Jackson, who started a band called 3T in 1994. Like his siblings, Tito also has a solo career, albeit later in life.

She accused her father of abuse in her 1991 memoir La Toya: Growing Up In The Jackson Family, via AllMusic. LaToya and her family’s disputes came in the midst of her marriage to her former manager Jack Gordon, via The New York Times. LaToya claimed that her ex was abusive in a 2013 interview with HuffPost.
Like her siblings, LaToya also embarked on a solo career outside of The Jackson Five, starting with a self-titled album in 1980. Her most recent release was an EP titled Starting Over in 2011.

While Marlon was a member of the Jackson Five, he only released one solo album, 1987’s Baby Tonight. Marlon pursued more business-oriented ventures, founding the Major Broadcasting Cable Network in 1999, which later became the Black Family Channel, which was sold in 2007, via his bio.

She released plenty of beloved albums, which are now regarding as classics in the 1980s and 90s, including Control, Rhythm Nation 1814, and Janet. She has continued to release music consistently through the years, with her most recent album being 2015’s Unbreakable. She’s also the subject of an upcoming documentary, simply titled Janet, which is expected to premiere on Lifetime and A&E in January 2022.
Outside of his siblings, Michael also had a half sister Joh’Vonnie, 47, whom Joe had with a woman he had an affair with named Cheryl Terrell in 1974. While she’s technically Michael’s half sister, Joh’Vonnie revealed that she didn’t have a strong relationship with the Jackson family in a 2018 interview with DailyMail, where she claimed she was “hidden away” and “kept secret” and never fully accepted. “I have met every single last one of them, but for some reason there has always been something stopping them from accepting me, from being close to me,” she said at the time. “Of course when I was around them there was a show of love, but once I was gone there was no phone calls asking how I’m doing or how is my daughter doing, it’s upsetting, real hurtful and I still feel rejected.”
Shanna Moakler has been vocal about her feelings on Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian’s relationship — and she echoes those feelings when it comes to her kids attending their engagement!
Shanna Moakler, 46, hasn’t been shy about her feelings of ex-husband Travis Barker’s, 45, relationship with Kourtney Kardashian, 42. But her kids have felt happy for their dad and soon-to-be-step-mom as they attended an engagement party thrown by Kourtney’s celebrity family, something that was hard for their mother to see. “Shanna’s kids going to the engagement party thrown by the Kardashian’s really hurt her,” a source close to the model told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY.
After four years of marriage, Shanna and Travis welcomed son Landon Asher Baker, 18, followed by daughter Alabama Louella Barker, 15, into the world together. But the kids have seemingly sided with their father as of recent, taking to social media to slam their mother, saying she’s not involved in their lives, claims Shanna deems to be untrue.
The former model and reality star has posted about her love for her children, she admitted earlier this summer that they weren’t speaking. While this is hard for the mom of 3 to watch, there’s a piece of her that understands the thrill of being involved with the most famous family in the world. “She’s been the best mom she can be to her kids,” our source added. “And at that age, who wouldn’t want to go to a party that’s thrown by the Kardashians?”
Both Landon and Alabama posted from the lavish looking dinner party right after Travis got down on one knee. They’ve been supportive of the couple for awhile now as they see how happy he makes their father, but that doesn’t mean they don’t care about their mom, too. “They’re happy for their dad,” our source said. “But the kids are torn.”
The former Miss USA isn’t necessarily happy for her ex as he officially moves on, but that doesn’t mean it’s because she wants him back. “She’s not in love with him,” our source revealed. “This isn’t about that. She loves her kids and wants nothing more than her kids to be happy and safe, but the idea of having them be a part of the most famous family in America would be daunting for anyone.”
Alec Baldwin hugged Halyna Hutchins’ heartbroken husband Matt Hutchins after he arrived near where the cinematographer tragically died from an accidental shooting on a movie set, with her son Andros.
Alec Baldwin, 63, was photographed giving his condolences to Halyna Hutchins‘ family just two days after a loaded prop gun he was holding accidentally went off on the set of his upcoming movie Rust and killed her. The actor embraced the late 42-year-old cinematographer’s husband Matt Hutchins as he arrived in New Mexico, the location the film was shooting in, with their son Andros, 9. They were outside of a Santa Fe hotel together when the somber exchange between them took place and were seen walking as they all wore face masks to protect themselves and others. See the pics HERE.
The meeting also reportedly included breakfast but Alec “honestly didn’t look good,” one source told PEOPLE, and he was “definitely sad” throughout the meal.

The meeting comes after another source said that Alec was reportedly “hysterical and inconsolable” for hours after the accident, which also injured director Joel Souza, on Thursday. He’s also reportedly “canceling all other projects” for the time being “to re-center himself.”
Authorities responded to a 911 call that was placed from Bonanza Creek Ranch, where the cast and crew were filming, right after the accidental shooting happened, and ended up airlifting Halyna to University of New Mexico Hospital, but she sadly died of her injuries once she was there.

After word got out that Alec was the one that fired the shot, he took to Twitter on Friday to break his silence. “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours,” he wrote. “I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and I am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family,” he continued. “My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”
Halyna’s husband Matt also spoke out to the Daily Mail and said that Alec was “being very supportive,” but also told Insider it was still difficult to communicate about his wife’s shocking passing. “I am not going to be able to comment about the facts or the process of what we’re going through right now, but I appreciate that everyone has been very sympathetic,” he explained. “I think that we will need a little bit of time before we can really encapsulate her life in a way that is easy to communicate.”
‘Friends would not have been the same without you,’ Jennifer Aniston penned in a tribute to the late actor, who died at just age 59 after a cancer battle.
Jennifer Aniston, 52, posted a sweet memorial to her Friends co-star James Michael Tyler just hours after his death. “Friends would not have been the same without you. Thank you for the laughter you brought to the show and to all of our lives. You will be so missed #JamesMichaelTaylor,” she via Instagram wrote on Sunday, Oct. 24, including a heartbreak emoji.
The Emmy winner captioned a hilarious throwback clip from the 2004 Friends finale featuring her character Rachel Green and James, who played Central Perk manager Gunther. In the unforgettable scene, James’ Gunther professes his love to Jennifer’s Rachel after she accepts a job with Ralph Lauren in Paris.
“I don’t know if that changes your plans at all, but I thought you should know,” Gunther tells Rachel, as she politely turns him down. Notably, James appeared in 148 episodes total — more than any other recurring character. He also made a virtual appearance in the highly awaited Friends reunion special last summer.
Courteney Cox, 57, who placed Monica Gellar on the series, also paid tribute via social media. “The size of gratitude you brought into the room and showed every day on set is the size of the gratitude I hold for having known you. Rest In peace James,” she wrote.
James died at just age 59 after battling stage four prostate cancer, which he was diagnosed with back in 2018. “Eventually, you know it’s gonna probably get me,” the actor said during a rare TODAY show interview in July. Through tears, he confirmed he could no longer walk, and professed regret over not getting checked for the disease earlier. “I would have gone in earlier and would have been, you know, caught earlier,” he said.
The actors’ family confirmed news of his death via a statement to TMZ. “The world knew him as Gunther (the seventh Friend), from the hit series Friends, but Michael’s loved ones knew him as an actor, musician, cancer-awareness advocate, and loving husband,” they said, going on to remember some of James’ favorite things. ”Michael loved live music, cheering on his Clemson Tigers, and would often find himself in fun and unplanned adventures. If you met him once you made a friend for life.”

She added “Still quarantining (in the salon LOL) but have Zoom meetings all day.” In accompanying IG videos, the 23-year-old told fans “I’ve been beyond bored, for real. So if anybody has any suggestions for what to watch on Hulu or Netflix, cause I’m running out of things to do in the salon. Very bored. Shout out to (dad) Kroy (Biermann), who has been delivering me my necessities at the stairs. He’s been bringing me all my clothes and food. He even brought me milk and cookies the other night.” Brielle then revealed that she was going to be taking a COVID test later in the day and hoped it would come back negative, because she said that she had COVID “for almost two weeks now.”

Joy-Anna Forsyth (née Duggar) revealed that not only did she come down with COVID-19 in 2020, but she also did while pregnant with her and Austin Forsyth’s daughter, Evelyn. While the Counting On star was conducting an Instagram “Ask Me Anything,” one fan inquired if Joy-Anna, 23, ever caught the coronavirus. “Yes, Austin [and] I both tested positive for Covid last year,” she responded. “I was still pregnant with Evelyn. We both had body aches, slight fever, and lost our [sense of] taste and smell. Thankfully, we recovered quickly.”
Pregnancy increases the risk of severe illness with COVID-19, according to the Mayo Clinic. “Pregnant women who have COVID-19 appear more likely to develop respiratory complications requiring intensive care than women who aren’t pregnant,” per the Clinic, and pregnant women are “more likely to be placed on a ventilator” after catching COVID-19. It sounds like Joy-Anna beat the odds.

It got through my whole family,” JoJo revealed to Entertainment Tonight on Thursday, Dec. 3. “We had headaches, we were tired, we had shortness of breath, we had all the things.

I even held my breath through their talk, but something must have happened there,” she said. Luckily, she didn’t suffer too severely, and added, “Fear was my biggest problem. We’ve got to grab fear and shake it and just do whatever you can to keep your immune system as healthy as you can.”

So tomorrow I get to go in and see if I’m all clear. It’s been rough. I gotta say. It’s not easy being separated. I’ve been on the other side of the house. Lauren has been really sweet, she’s been keeping me fed. She just slides some food outside and I go get it. So that is the reason why we’ve been so absent.”

Even before receiving the positive test results, Donald and Melania planned to go into quarantine. This is because Trump’s top aide Hope Hicks was the first to test positive for the coronavirus after she and the president traveled to and from the first 2020 presidential debate together (which took place on Sept. 29). Donald and Melania’s positive COVID-19 tests happened less than five weeks before the Nov. 3 presidential election.

Terrible! The First Lady and I are waiting for our test results. In the meantime, we will begin our quarantine process!,” Trump tweeted on Oct. 1.

She continued: “As far as my health, I’m doing well. My husband Bill and our son [Duke] also did test positive, but we’re all doing well and taking care of each other so I’m going to get back to doing that.

We were doing our best before, and I thought I had the flu, and I didn’t want to be paranoid about it.”
However, the How I Met Your Mother star knew something was wrong when he “lost [his] sense of taste and smell,” so the family “holed up” afterwards. They’re now doing “great,” Neil confirmed.

Jillian Michaels revealed she contracted COVID-19 from a “very close friend” after letting her “guard down” during an interview on Fox Business, which aired on Sept. 8. “If you are afraid of COVID, you should not go to the gym. And I actually am a person who let my guard down, I haven’t even spoken about this publicly really, and a very close friend of mine gave me COVID several weeks ago,” the fitness expert admitted on television.
While she got “on the other side” of the virus “pretty quick,” The Biggest Loser host admitted that a public gym is “probably a place where you will get [the coronavirus].” She added, “I would love to tell you that’s not the case, but the reality is I literally get my guard down for an hour with one of my best friends who does my hair and makeup and got it. It’s just that simple.” Jillian clarified that her friend “had no idea” she had the virus, and even the workout guru herself was unaware she was carrying the virus for six days.

Gabrielle Union took to Instagram to share a set of new eye-catching photos of her and husband Dwyane Wade showing off matching green pants while posing in a body mirror.
Gabrielle Union, 48, and Dwyane Wade, 39, looked sexy and confident in their latest photos together! The actress shared new mirror selfies of both of them standing shirtless while wearing matching green pants and giving off serious facial expressions. She covered her chest with her long braided hair and looked gorgeous while her hubby looked handsome with a beard.
“Fittings 🖤👫🏿🖤 @dwyanewade Welcome to #ScorpioSzn🦂,” Gabrielle wrote in the caption for the pics, which were met with several comments. “Not the matching belly buttons! 🤣🤣🤣❤️,” one follower joked while another complimented both of their toned abs. “Yessssss Scorpio season ❤️❤️❤️,” a third shared.
Gabrielle’s latest pics come after she’s been making headlines with her new tell-all book, You Got Anything Stronger? One of the things she opened up about in the release was when she found out Dwyane had a baby with another woman before they were married. She admitted to feeling “shattered” and it brought up her own struggles.

“In 2013, before we were married, Dwyane had a baby with another woman. It should go without saying that we were not in a good place at the time that child was conceived,” she wrote in the memoir while pointing out how she was going through IVF treatments at the time.
“The experience of Dwyane having a baby so easily—while I was unable to—left my soul not just broken into pieces, but shattered into fine dust scattering in the wind,” she wrote in the memoir.
A source later told us that the process of writing such revealing issues was “healing” for her and Dwyane knew about it beforehand. “She was upfront with him the whole time,” the insider shared with HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “He noticed that writing this book and being so open and real only helped their relationship and that is what was the most important thing for him.”
Gabrielle and Dwyane were married in 2014 and share daughter Kaavia, 2, whom they had via surrogate.

It’s so mortifying,” she said, adding she did things that were “so mortifying and cringe-worthy.”
It was actually BFF Malika Haqq who filmed the moment, which aired back in season four of the reality show. The moment happened after Malika suggested Khloe find ways to “still nurture” her relationship with her then-husband, who was frequently on the road. After brainstorming, the women thought of shooting Khloe in a sexy video. “You know, I kind of like the idea of a sexy little video — I can be naughty,” Khloe said in a confessional.

“He’s obsessed with candy. Oh my god, I should do candy — like bags and bags and bags of skittles, and put them in a bathtub with me sitting in it with a tiara,” Khloe excitedly suggested over brunch to Malika at the time. “You’re going to have skittles in places you never have before,” her BFF responded, as the girls went right to the store to get shopping.
The moment wasn’t as sexy as planned, as Malika hurt Khloe as she poured huge gum bulls on her in the tub. “Owwww!” she screamed as Malika told her to “stop being a baby.”

Khloe and Lamar married back in 2009 after knowing each other for just a few weeks. The pair went on to star in their own spinoff Khloe & Lamar, however, separated in 2013 after four years of marriage.
Two years later, Lamar almost lost is love following a near fatal overdose at a Nevada brothel, prompting Khloe to hold the divorce. Although Lamar was on good terms with the KarJenner clan after being discharged from hospital — even attending the Yeezy fashion show in 2016 — Khloe legally divorced him that year.
The ‘Les Miserables’ actor sweetly shared a video of a bunch of crew members wishing his frenemy Ryan Reynolds a happy birthday.
Ryan Reynoldscelebrated his 45th birthday on Saturday October 23, and to celebrate, Hugh Jackman,53, took to his Instagram to deliver a very special birthday message to his X-Men: Origins co-star. Hugh and Ryan have had a bizarre and hilarious feud for years, where the two seem to lovingly troll each other. In the Instagram video (which you can see HERE!), the X-Men star made sure Ryan knew just how he felt about him.
The clip featured various crew members saying “Happy Birthday” to the star (except for one who instead offered a happy birthday to Ryan’s wife, Blake Lively), before it came to Hugh, who was sitting in a makeup chair. “It’s not easy. Happy Birthday, Ryan. There you go, we got it. How many people did we get? People say I don’t like you, but that was 15 people,” Hugh quipped. The actor then hilariously started handing money to the artist, to make sure the crew were rewarded for making sure that Ryan got a birthday message. “They say I don’t love you,” the actor said, before the clip ended.
While Hugh may have seemed pained wishing the Deadpool actor a happy birthday, it’s clear the pair are very good friends, because they both posted a photo of themselves hanging out, along with Blake, Hugh’s wife Deborra-Lee Furness, director Shawn Levy, and his wife Serena Levy. While it seemed like a happy birthday celebration, Hugh did make fun of Ryan for taking the photo in socks. “Let’s start with the obvious… Where are his shoes?” he wrote in the photo on his story.

Heather Rae Young wore a gorgeous corset style gown with a lace and sequin overlay designed by Galia Lahav to marry the love of her love, Tarek El Moussa!
Heather Rae Young, 33, looked gorgeous on her wedding day to Tarek El Moussa, 40! The Selling Sunset star wore a custom corset style gown with French lace created by Israeli designer Galia Lahav as she walked down the aisle at the Rosewood Miramar Beach in Santa Barbara on Saturday, Oct. 23. The gown was accented by silver sequin details to add a dash of sparkle in a leaf pattern on her arms and down through the bodice and sheer skirt. The dress also included a sexy keyhole back.
The sparkle tied into the hair piece at the back of her bun and large diamond stud earrings. Her hair and makeup also looked incredible for her big day, as she opted to rock a braided bun style that photographed beautifully. Heather’s skin was glowing with her neutral makeup as she beamed at her new groom in other photos, looking more in love than ever. She finished her ensemble with a clear stiletto shoe.

“We’re best friends, we’re true soulmates, and our love is so rare and so special,” Heather said to PEOPLE magazine shortly after the wedding ceremony. “It’s the love I’ve always dreamed of my whole life,” the reality star also said — which was echoed by Tarek! “I’m just excited to live this life with her. We’ve got the two babies, we have a family, and we have a very bright future,” he sweetly said of his new bride.
Old Hollywood was the theme of the wedding, which featured a black, white and gold color palette. Their guests mingled at a champagne cocktail hour before dinner and dancing at the incredible beach-front resort. Following the nuptials, Heather and Tarek are set to honeymoon in the Maldives and Dubai.
The couple’s big day comes two afters after they began their romantic journey, announcing their engagement in July 2020. This is the first marriage for Heather, and the second for Tarek who was wed to his Flip or Flop co-star Christina Haack between 2009 and 2018 (the exes are parents to kids Taylor, 11, and Brayden, 6, who were part of their dad’s wedding to Heather).
Meghan McCain called Katie Couric a ‘hypocritical’ journalist in a shocking column she wrote on Oct. 15. Find out how the entire feud unfolded and get details on their rocky history here.
Meghan McCain, 37, didn’t hold back about her feelings on Katie Couric, 64, in a column for Daily Mail, which was published on Oct. 15, and it’s bringing their headline-making feud to the forefront of everyone’s minds. The former co-host of The View fearlessly called the broadcast legend “a hypocrite” and criticized her journalism when Katie admitted to leaving out certain comments from the late Ruth Bader Ginsberg after a 2016 interview she had with her. Although she claimed she took out some of her words as a way to “protect” her, Meghan wasn’t having it and even seemingly called Katie’s behavior “toxic.”

Find out the details of the feud, how it unfolded, and past issues they’ve had below.
Before Their Latest Feud, Meghan Called Out Katie In Jan. 2021.
The Republican called Katie’s comments “out of bounds” after she spoke to Bill Maher over how she feels people should view former President Donald Trump‘s supporters. “I also think some of them are believing the garbage that they are being fed 24/7 on the internet, by their constituents, and they bought into this big lie,” Katie said. “And the question is how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump.”
Meghan, who has been known to also criticize Trump, responded to Katie’s words by saying she thought that after Joe Biden‘s presidential win in Nov. 2020, Democrats would be calling for unity. “Instead we’re hearing a lot of language from people like Katie Couric talking about Republicans like me need to be deprogramed, that we’re brainwashed — that 74 million Americans are basically irredeemable people, that we don’t need to communicate with or in any way have anything to do with,” she said shortly after Katie’s interview. “I think it’s horribly dangerous for the country and I also think it’s horribly dangerous for Democrats. … Honestly, they can go to hell because I don’t need to be deprogrammed.”
Their Latest Feud All Started With Katie’s Memoir.

Katie’s new book, Going There, which has a release date of Oct. 26, 2021, reveals intimate details about her life and the struggles she went through, such as a battle with bulimia as a teen, but it also includes her opinions and actions as a journalist, which is what Meghan had a problem with. She admitted to leaving a portion of her interview with Ruth out because she criticized NFL players like Colin Kaepernick for kneeling in protest during the national anthem during football games.
Katie explained that the former Supreme Court Justice described the players kneeling as having “contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.” She went on to claim that a public affairs official for the Supreme Court asked her to remove the comments about the NFL players the next day because they said she had “misspoken.”
Katie Admitted Removing Ruth’s Comments Wasn’t An Easy Decision.
In the book, Katie also says she “lost a lot of sleep” while thinking about how to proceed with the request to remove the comments. She was also receiving conflicting opinions about whether or not to go along with it, but she ultimately decided to make the cut.
After Advanced Copies Of Katie’s Book Were Sent Out, Meghan Wrote The Column That Called Her Out.

Meghan quit The View and teamed up with the Daily Mail to work as a columnist in Sept. 2021. She released a statement that said she was excited about the job because it would allow her to share her opinions without the fear of censorship and in her column about Katie, that’s exactly what she did. It was released on Oct. 15, 2021 and talked about Katie’s practices as a journalist as well as toxicity in the workplace.
“How can there be any expectation of trust between anyone with an opinion to the right of Ruth Bader Ginsburg if interviewers and their networks believe editing out commentary they believe would hurt a progressive icon is an ethical thing to do?” Meghan questioned in the column, before adding, “…Katie Couric would have afforded no conservative woman any such mercy.”
She went on to say that “the generations before mine have created, fostered and enabled a long line of toxic behavior towards the generations of women coming up behind them,” before calling Katie’s memoir, “nothing short of a kamikaze mission to destroy what is left of the carcass of her career.”
Meghan also said she “hated” Katie’s book during her Oct. 20, 2021 appearance on Watch What Happens Live, which can be seen above.
Meghan Admitted She Hasn’t Liked Katie Since Her 2008 Interview With Sarah Palin.
Katie’s infamous interview with former Alaska Governor and then-vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in 2008, received a lot of criticism, and Meghan admitted it was that moment that caused her not to like the former Today anchor. “I don’t like Katie Couric, I haven’t liked Katie Couric since she interviewed Sarah Palin,” Meghan wrote before describing the interview as “a trainwreck” in which Sarah performed poorly.
“But she was being interviewed by an infamous mean girl who has now admitted to leaving out a ‘damaging’ part of an interview with Ruth Bader Ginsburg where the former Supreme Court justice and left-wing icon admits to not liking those who kneel before rather than salute our American flag,” she continued.
Meghan brought up both interviews, with Sarah and Ruth, to point out that she didn’t trust Katie for not tweaking her final interviews to make liberals look good and conservatives look bad. “If we now know for a fact that if Katie Couric edited her interviews to make famous liberals look good, one can only imagine and speculate about what she might possibly have done to make conservatives look bad,” she explained before using that as an example of why people shouldn’t trust media. “How many other interviews did she rig or manipulate during her long, storied career? And why did her network allow it to air in such a fashion?”
Katie Hasn’t Responded To Meghan.
As of Oct. 24, 2021, Katie hadn’t responded to Meghan’s comments about her memoir, but since she’s often in the spotlight and dishing details during her book tour and other appearances, we’d suspect the topic could come up sometime in the future.
Shiloh looked gorgeous in a velvet black cocktail dress, looking every bit like a movie star! The teenager sweetly held hands with mom Angelina on the red carpet for ‘The Eternals.’
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 15, was the belle of the ball at the 16th Rome Film Festival! The blonde looked so much like her handsome dad Brad Pittas she posed for photographers alongside mom Angelina Jolie, 46, and equally gorgeous sister Zahara, 16, on Oct. 24 at The Eternals premiere. Shiloh went with a black velvet gown cut at a cocktail length, adding a dash of her own personality with a bright yellow pair of sneakers. She kept her blonde hair back in a fishtail bun, showing off her growing skin and makeup.

The teen accessorized with a chunky gold hoop earring, reminiscent of the late ’80s and early ’90s. She sweetly held hands with Angelina, who looked stunning in a strapless silver gown that hugged her curves. The Lara Croft: Tomb Raider actress kept her long brown hair down and straight, seemingly rocking some extensions to add a length.
Zahara, who held her mom’s hand on the right hand side, also looked amazing for the premiere. The teenager opted for a grecian-inspired white gown with a gold sequin neckline. Zahara kept her jewelry simple, sporting a dainty ring, bracelet and hair pin to accent the glam look.
Angelina has had her kids on hand for multiple premiere events to promote the film, including one just days ago in Los Angeles. Zahara notably wore her mother’s 2014 Oscar dress by Elie Saab as she posed with her family, including siblings Maddox, 20, and Knox, 13, and Vivienne, also 13. “My kids are all mixed with vintage, and in my old Oscars dress. We did all vintage and upcycled my old stuff,” Angelina hilariously said to Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet. Shiloh also looked incredible at the L.A. event, opting for a sleveless beige number also belonging to her Oscar winning mama.
Angelina plays character Thena in the upcoming Chloe Zhao directed Marvel flick, which also stars Kit Harington, Salma Hayek and Kumail Nanjiani. The film marks Angelina’s debut in the Marvel Universe.
Saweetie was seen recently snapping pics with Adele at a Lakers game and we now know why as she talks new music and more in this EXCLUSIVE interview!
Rapper and queen of the nail art, Saweetie, 28, was recently seen kicking off the Lakers’ NBA season next to none other than Adele, 33! While we were all hoping the sighting means the two were chatting about a future collaboration, something the rapper herself said she’d be into, we found out the meaning behind the photo moment. “That would be really cool, but I just got this new hobby,” Saweetie told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY while attending Audacy’s 8th annual “We Can Survive” benefit concert in Los Angeles on Oct. 23

“I’m now a cameraman. It’s really cool taking people’s pictures. I love being behind the camera, so I was actually taking a picture of her,” she added.
The hip hop artist first emerged on Instagram rapping in 2017, but hit it real big in the summer of 2020 after going viral on YouTube with her hit “My Type.” The cousin of actress Gabrielle Union, 48, has made her own name for herself. Launching songs such as “Best Friend” with Doja Cat, 26, “Tap In,” and “Fast (Motion” have earned her several award nominations and trophies.
Although photography is a hobby for Saweetie, she’s been helping out the Lakers’ owners for awhile now and has no plans of stopping! “I’m really cool with Linda and Jeanie Buss and Jordan,” Saweetie said. “They manage and run the Laker Organization, so sometimes I go to the Laker game and I take cool pictures for them. I’m a Tumblr girl! So I’ve always loved taking pictures, editing pictures, making people look cool.”
Don’t expect the camera to take away from Saweetie’s other creative outlet anytime soon, as she promises new music is on the horizon. “I’m working on Icy season!” Saweetie revealed. “I have some cool collaborations but it’ll come out before Pretty Bitch Season, so everybody should get ready for Icy season.”
There’s also one thing that Saweetie makes sure to do every single day to keep her head right, no matter what she has going on that day, whether it’s performing or taking photos of other celebrities. “I make sure I meditate because it makes me sane,” Saweetie said. “Whether it’s 20 minutes or 2 hours, but I meditate through lighting candles, drinking tea. Tea is where I get my super powers from. I love throat coat and I mix it in with ginger tea with lots and lots of honey.”
James Michael Tyler, best known for playing Gunther on ‘Friends,’ died on TKdate, just TKweeks/months after he announced his stage 4 cancer diagnosis.
Central Perk has lost its most beloved employee. Actor James Michael Tyler, who was best known for his role as Gunther in Friends, died at age 59 on Sunday, Oct. 24 of stage 4 prostate cancer, TMZ reports. James Michael announced his cancer diagnosis on June 21, telling TODAY’s Craig Melvin, “eventually, you know it’s gonna probably get me.”
His family also issued a statement. “The world knew him as Gunther (the seventh “Friend”), from the hit series Friends, but Michael’s loved ones knew him as an actor, musician, cancer-awareness advocate, and loving husband,” they said to TMZ. ” Michael loved live music, cheering on his Clemson Tigers, and would often find himself in fun and unplanned adventures. If you met him once you made a friend for life.”
James Michael was born on May 28, 1962 in Greenwood, Mississippi as the youngest of five children. His father died when he was 10 years old, and his mother died when he was 11. With his sister, James Michael moved to Anderson, South Carolina and graduated from Anderson College in 1982 and then from Clemson University with a degree in genealogy. He was a member of a student theatre group at Clemson, which inspired him to seek out a career in acting.
After moving to Los Angeles in 1988, James Michael worked as a production assistant on the war film Fat Man and Little Boy. Six year later, James Michael began starring in Friends as Gunther, the sarcastic manager of the Central Perk coffee shop who had a crush on Jennifer Aniston‘s Rachel Green. He appeared in 148 total episodes across all ten seasons of the beloved NBC sitcom, the most of any other recurring character.
On June 21, James Michael revealed in the TODAY interview that his prostate cancer was discovered during a routine physical nearly 3 years ago when he was 56 years old. “In September of 2018, I was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer, which had spread to my bones,” James Michael said. Unfortunately, his cancer mutated during the COVID pandemic which caused fractures in his bones and tumors up and down his spine. At the time of the interview, he was no longer able to walk.

While in tears, James Michael told Craig that he regretted not listening to his wife, Jennifer Carno, sooner regarding his health struggles. “I would have gone in earlier and would have been, you know, caught earlier,” he said. Before Jennifer, James Michael was married to Barbara Chadsey from 1995 to 2014.

James Michael was unable to personally attend the Friends reunion special on HBO Max due to his health. However, he did call in via video, much to the pleasure of the lead stars. In the TODAY interview, he said that David Schwimmer “corresponded” with him on Instagram after hearing about the diagnosis, and was “sure” that the other Friends stars knew about his cancer diagnosis by that point. Rest in peace, James Michael Tyler.
The acting pair reunited to celebrate their son’s special day with cake and a celebration to show how proud they are of their boy.
They grow up so fast! Reese Witherspoon, 45, and Ryan Philippe, 47, both wished their son Deacon a very happy birthday on Saturday October 23. The exes were all smiles as they posed with their son in the center, as they celebrated his 18th birthday. Reese and Deacon both wore black shirts, while Ryan sported a beige button down, as they smiled before digging into the delicious looking cake.
Both of the actors paid tribute to their boy with heartfelt captions on the momentous birthday. “Happy 18th birthday to our gorgeous, smart, talented, and caring son. You are a true light in this world and are so loved by all who know you. We are lucky to be your mom and dad,” Ryan wrote in his caption, before complimenting Reese, mentioning that he felt like they “did pretty good.”

Meanwhile, Reese shared a bunch of different photos of Deacon through the years, reminiscing and showing how she can’t believe just how much he’s grown up. “One day he was trading Pokémon cards, singing Bruno Mars songs, and playing American Ninja Warrior in the backyard. The next day, he is taller than me, cooking the family steaks on the grill and making his own music with his best friends,” she wrote. The Legally Blonde actor ended her post with a heartfelt message to her son. “My heart is bursting with pride about the young man he is becoming. Happy 18th Birthday Deacon! I love you to the moon around the sun and all the stars.”

Reese and Ryan were married from 1999 to 2008. Other than Deacon, they share a daughterAva Elizabeth,22. Ryan has another daughter Kai Knapp, 10, with his ex-girlfriend Alexis Knapp. Reese has another son Tennessee James Toth, 9, with her current husband Jim Toth. Deacon already looked incredibly grown-up before his 18th birthday. He was spotted out shopping with his mom earlier in September, and he towered over her, while they went to the car together. He was the spitting image of his father, while vacationing in New Mexico in August.
Gigi Hadid was all smiles while walking with a friend and pushing a stroller that had her sweet daughter Khai in it on the streets of the Big Apple.
Gigi Hadid, 26, looked incredible in a fashionable and comfortable-looking outfit during her latest stroll! The model and new mom was joined by her one-year-old daughter Khai, who was in a stroller, and a friend as she was recently photographed in New York City.

The beauty also wore sunglasses and had her long hair pulled up and back into a bun and added a white clip toward the top of her head to keep loose strands in place. She flashed a slight smile while walking by cameras and appeared relaxed and happy to be getting fresh air with her bundle of joy, whom she shares with boyfriend Zayn Malik, 28.

Before Gigi made headlines with her recent stroll, she did so for being spotted with her younger sister Bella Hadid and brother Anwar Hadid, 22, to celebrate Bella’s 25th birthday two weeks ago. The siblings were all dressed in style, including Gigi, who rocked a cozy heather gray jumpsuit from ST. JOHN’s SS22 collection. She also wore a black leather jacket over the outfit choice and added chunky loafers to top it all off.
When Gigi’s not turning heads with family hangouts, she’s doing so on runways. The talented gal strutted her stuff at Rihanna‘s Savage X Fenty Volume 3 fashion show, which aired in Sept. on Amazon Prime. She rocked a metallic blue robe that had a V-neckline and two slits on the sides at the show as well as a matching belt and underwear that peeked through under the opening of the robe. She also showed of a long straight hair look with bangs and epic flattering makeup that went perfectly with the look.
In addition to being a rockstar model, Gigi is a rockstar parent. She and Zayn celebrated little Khai’s first birthday during a weekend in Sept. and although they’ve been keeping the tot’s face private and away from the public, Gigi’s father Mohamed Hadid couldn’t help but share snapshots of the big day on Instagram, and one showed the birthday girl from the back. “Khai 1st bd,” he wrote in the caption.
Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae Young are officially married! The duo tied the knot on Oct. 23 after two years of dating.
Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae Young are married! The HGTV star, 40, and his actress partner, 33, tied the knot on Saturday, Oct. 23 at a Santa Barbara hotel after two years of dating. Heather looked gorgeous in a corset style dress that included French lace by Israeli designer Galia Lahav — see the photos via PEOPLE magazine here. Meanwhile, Tarek was dapper in a black velvet blazer.
“We’re best friends, we’re true soulmates, and our love is so rare and so special,” Heather said to the publication. “It’s the love I’ve always dreamed of my whole life,” the blonde added. Tarek also shared sweet words about his new wife! “I’m just excited to live this life with her. We’ve got the two babies, we have a family, and we have a very bright future,” he gushed.
The nuptials mark the first marriage for Heather, best known for her role in Netflix’s real estate reality TV series Selling Sunset. Tarek was previously married to his Flip or Flop co-star Christina Haack between 2009 and 2018. He and Heather have been linked since 2019, having gone Instagram official in August of that year.
“After more than 3 years on my own I’m so PROUD to say that this beautiful, sweet and talented young lady is my girlfriend!” Tarek wrote on Instagram at the time. “I’ll be honest and say I never thought I would meet someone special in my life after the last three years. Then…out of the blue @heatherraeyoung walked into my life.”

“In life you can’t predict the future! I couldn’t predict divorce! I couldn’t predict two cancers! I couldn’t predict my back injury! You just never know what tomorrow brings,” he later added. “I just want to let the world know I met someone special that makes me want to be a better man.” The two announced their engagement in July 2020.
The wedding comes after the two had a joint ’80s-themed bachelor and bachelorette party over the weekend of September 12 in the California desert. Heather documented the festivities on Instagram, which also included a guest list that featured her Selling Sunset co-stars Mary Fitzgerald, Romain Bonnet, and more. “The most magical Bach & Bach weekend,” she captioned.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better weekend and honestly there wasn’t a moment that went by where I didn’t feel so lucky to be at such a beautiful hotel celebrating mine and Tarek’s love with all our closest friends,” Heather continued. “Having a joint bachelor and bachelorette weekend made it the most fun and special time.”
Jason Sudeikis made his first ‘SNL’ appearance in years! The actor was a long-running cast member on the series before departing in 2013.
Jason Sudeikis, 45, is back! The actor appeared on Saturday Night Live for his first-ever hosting gig on Saturday, Oct. 23 — and reprised his role as Joe Biden! New comer James Austin Johnson opened with his new take on the current president in an Oval Office set. Seemingly exhausted, he pondered — what happened to his old self?
In come Jason’s Biden, who he hasn’t portrayed since 2013! “I’m you! I’m you from 8 years ago. The ghost from Biden’s past — boo!” Jason hilariously quipped, visibly casual in a bomber jacket and baseball hat (Johnson’s Biden, however, was in a full suit and tie).

“Yeah, partner, where I’m from — we’re still VP. Easiest job in the world. We’re like America’s wacky neighbor…we pop in with ice cream, shake a few hands, rub a few shoulders,” Jason’s Biden explained to his future self, played by James’ version, who tried to fill his past self in on the last eight years (including Donald Trump).
“The last president ruined everything! Ordering McDonald’s to the White House, hanging out with strippers,” he began, as Jason’s Biden quipped the “only mansion I care about is the Playboy Mansion — that’s classic 2K-13 Biden!”
SNL cast member Alex Moffatt — who played Biden once in 2013 — also joined the fun. “Who the hell are you?” Jason’s Biden asked. “I’m Joe Biden?” Alex’s Biden replied to a confused Jason and James were clearly confused. “From When?” Jason’s Biden then inquired. “March 2021?” Alex replied, as the two dismissed him.
“I should just mosey back on 2013, I just got tickets to a concert,” Jason suggested, before giving James some advice. “We may be from different eras — at the end of the day, we’re both Joe-freaking-Biden.”
Jason’s career has exploded since his long-running tenure at SNL, which began as a writer before becoming a cast member in 2005 (he left in 2013 after a decade). Most recently, the actor has starred in arguably the biggest hit on Apple TV+, Ted Lasso. The Fairfax, Virginia native plays the title character in the series, which follows the story an American college football coach who led the Wichita State Shockers to a Division II NCAA championship.
The popular show even led to Jason’s first-ever Emmy in Sept. 2021, where SNL showrunner Lorne Michaels teased the former cast member’s return. “Jason Sudeikis will be coming back soon,” the Canadian-born producer said to press, declining to offer more details. Jason was later confirmed alongside Owen Wilson, Kim Kardashian and Rami Malek as one of the first four hosts to kick off season 47.
Move over Ellen — Mellen has arrived in the form of Jason Sudeikis! The actor brought his spin on the talk show host to ‘SNL.’
Jason Sudeikis, 45, brought all the laughs on Saturday Night Live — including in this Ellen DeGeneres spoof! The Ted Lasso star played spoofed male version Mellen who dressed just like the talk show host, and had a show in a very similar looking set as a voice over explained the difference between the two.
“Mellen’s a man man! You never know what Mellen might do next! He won’t just hi-five the audience, he’ll fist pump them too,” they explained, noting there were some similarities — including sneak up surprises!

“Just like Ellen, Mellen has sneak up surprises,” the voice over said, as Mellen interviewed Chris Redd‘s character who appeared to be against the COVID-19 vaccine. As Chris was speaking, a nurse pupped up from behind and stuck a syringe right into his neck for a Gotcha! moment. “You just got vaxxed, Mellen style!” Jason’s Mellen quipped.
The actor’s journey to his long-time role at SNL — which gave him the platform for a successful film career — came after he wanted to become a member of the Blue Man Group. “They flew me out to New York…That was August of 2001, right before 9/11. And I got to see myself bald and blue,” he hilariously said to GQ last year. Shortly after, he was asked to audition for Lorne and the Saturday Night Live team — which he wasn’t keen on.
“I didn’t want to work on SNL,” he confssed. “At a certain point in your comedy journey, you have to look at it as like McDonald’s…You have to be like: ‘No. Never’,” he reasoned, eventually, of course, saying yes. “It was like having a crush on the prettiest girl at school and being like, ‘She seems like a jerk.’ And it’s like, ‘Oh, really? ‘Cause she said she liked you.’ ‘She what?!” he went on, drawing a parallel to his actual feelings.
Jason has been in the headlines in recent months for changes in his personal life: the actor’s longtime relationship with Olivia Wilde, 37, came to an end in Nov. 2020. The exes are parents to Otis, 7, and Daisy, 4, who they continue to co-parent. “I’ll have a better understanding of why in a year…and an even better one in two, and an even greater one in five, and it’ll go from being, you know, a book of my life to becoming a chapter to a paragraph to a line to a word to a doodle,” he said in the same interview. “That’s an experience that you either learn from or make excuses about. You take some responsibility for it, hold yourself accountable for what you do, but then also endeavor to learn something beyond the obvious from it,” he also said.
Kenan Thompson’s ‘D’Andre’ hosted the ‘SNL’ talk show sketch, which included a few familiar faces — including cousin Greg from ‘Succession’!
You never know who might pop up on Saturday Night Live — and October 23rd was no exception! While Jason Sudeikis, 45, hosted the episode, the former SNL cast member had a supporting role in this sketch which was all Kenan Thompson. As a BET logo flashed on the screen, Kenan introduced the spoof talk show called, “What’s Up With That — Halloween Edition” that included some major guests like Emily Ratajkowski, Oscar Issac and Succession’s Nicholas Braun.

“We’re taking on the issues of the day with soul,” Kenan declared, rocking a longer hair ‘do and a ’70s inspired burgundy suit. He went on to introduce his guests — Oscar, who was dressed as a pirate, Emily, as a cat in tiger ears, and Succession actor Nicholas Braun — who appeared to come as just himself.

Kenan didn’t let the gang do much talking, however, as he continued on with his rather repetitive song. “I woke up this morning and I got out of bed…hid from a ghost and a scary black cat….ooh wee. What’s up with that, what’s up with that?” Kenan’s D’Andre crooned with a little help from another guest star: Fred Armisen as Giuseppe the saxophone player and Jason Sudeikis, who appeared to be channeling The Royal Tenenbaums in a red Adidas suit while doing his doing as a back-up dancer.
“Well thank you very much for joining us. We’re excited about Halloween! It might get a little creepy. It might get a little stinky!” Kenan then told the group, as Chris Redd busted a move in the audience before turning his attention to Fred’s Giuseppe.
“I hope your wife is feeling better,” Kenan said to a chuckling Fred, rocking a long wig just like Kenny G (who is one of the most successful artists of all time). “That wasn’t a joke, Giuseppe,” Kenan clarified. After brief chatter with his guests, D’Andre appeared to be confused about Nicholas — confusing him with Lindsey Buckingham from Fleetwood Mac.
“He has been on every show that we have ever had for the last 12 years — Lindsey Buckingham,” D’Andre announced, seemingly thinking the legendary rocker was dressed up as Cousin Greg from Succession. “The best cousin Greg from Succession I have ever seen,” he noted to a confused Nicholas.
“I’m Nicholas Braun,” the Succession star corrected multiple times throughout the sketch. The guests — including Oscar — didn’t get the chance to do much talking, though, as Kenan went right back into his song.
“Well, we outta time — but I wanna thank Oscar Issac for being here,” D’Andre said at the end, with Oscar noting, “That’s how I thought it would go.”
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen stepped out in stylish coats and sunglasses while taking a smoke break in New York City on Friday.
Mary-Kate Olsen, 35, and Ashley Olsen, 35, didn’t pay much attention to cameras when they hung out outside a building in the Big Apple to smoke on Oct. 22. The twin sisters were dressed in long coats, including a bright red one for Mary-Kate and a brown one for Ashley, and pants as they leaned back against the building’s concrete during the rare outing. They also wore sunglasses and black face masks and had their long locks down.

Mary-Kate topped her look off with green, blue, and white sneakers while Ashley went with black slip-on loafer-style shoes. They seemed to observe people passing by as they relaxed in the moment and appeared to go into the building when they were done.
The fashion designers’ latest outing comes over a year since Mary-Kate went through a headline-making divorce from her ex Olivier Sarkozy, 52. She first filed a petition for the divorce in May 2020 after reportedly being forced to leave the Gramercy Park neighborhood rental they had been living in when the $29,000-per month lease expired. They reached a settlement by Jan. o this year. The former husband and wife were married in 2015 around three years after they first started dating.

As Mary-Kate continues to move on from her divorce, Ashley has been dating Louis Eisner, who she was spotted out with last month. The lovebirds are believed to have started their romance back in 2017 and their recent public outing together was for a 20th-anniversary celebration for the Young Eisner Scholars in Beverly Hills, CA.
Although Mary-Kate and Ashley are known for keeping their personal lives pretty private, their high-profile status keeps them in the spotlight. They are also sometimes spotted, like during their latest outing, hanging out outside their apartment building to smoke and chat with each other and appear to go about living their lives in a low-key way despite their wealth and fame. The beauties haven’t acted in years but maintain their very successful fashion brands, including The Row and Elizabeth and James.

The stars all seemed like they were having a great time and greeted each other with hugs, while they were out for the evening. Katy looked stunning in a pink jacket with a few white stripes tie-dyed into it. Her fiancé sported a gray shirt under a brown jacket with matching pants and a baseball cap. Jennifer rocked a black blouse with white polka-dots, while Courteney sported a brown top with an intricate black design, and Lisa wore a plain jacket.

The “Firework” singer and Pirates of the Caribbean actor have meanwhile been busy raising their daughter Daisy, who turned one back in August. Katy’s seemed to really taken to being a mother, as she’s been seen sweetly out and about with her little girl. Other than spending time with their daughter, Orlando and Katy couldn’t seem more in love, after about five years of dating. Earlier in October, Orlando sweetly gave his fiancée of two years a hand, while she was gearing up to perform at Variety’s “Power of Women” event in Beverly Hills. As Katy was preparing to sing, the actor hopped onstage to make sure her dress was held shut. Afterwards, he gave her a delicate kiss on the shoulder.

The star recently made waves dropping her first Spanish single “Pa’ Mis Muchachas” in two decades, along with a spicy new music video! The “Genie In A Bottle” singer had some support from fellow latinas Nathy Peluso, Becky G, and Nicki Nicole on the track, who also appeared in the Alexandre Moors directed project. The ladies go undercover as they attempt to take down a shady criminal in the four-minute clip, that includes a sexy dance sequence and plenty of eye catching fashion. Christina, in particular, slayed in a patent leather catsuit to open the video, later rocking a all leather trench coat a she sits upon a throne.

“I am proud to reveal mi primera canción [my first song] from a body of work that lives so closely to my heart,” Christina wrote after releasing the song on social media. “And these beautiful, strong, and talented women are joining forces with me for this first Guaracha,” she added, referencing sub-genre of Latin music that originated in Cuba. Notably, Christina’s father Fausto Xavier Aguilera hails from Ecuador, while her mom Shelly Loraine Kearns is of Welsh, Dutch, German and Irish ancestry.
She also said the song is meant to be an “homage to women” in an interview with Billboard. “In the song we mention that I’m a woman that is strong because I was raised by a woman that was strong and so was she before that,” she explained. “It’s something that gets passed down by generations. I chose Nathy, Becky and Nicki because of the strength they exude.”
The ‘Game Of Thrones’ stars have come so far since they first met on the set of the iconic HBO fantasy show. Look back on some of the major moments of their relationship.
Nearly ten years after first dazzling audiences as the stars of Game Of Thrones,Kit Harington, 34, and Rose Leslie,34, continue to be a beloved couple in the entertainment industry. After debuting as two of the leads in the iconic HBO series, the pair have gone on to have many successful roles outside of the fantasy show. The Scottish actress and English actor have gone on to play many other memorable characters besides Ygritte and Jon Snow. Rose starred in the 2014 film Honeymoon, and Kit just made his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Eternals. Look back on some of their relationship highlights here!

While Jon Snow and Ygritte fell in love in season 2 of the show, so did Kit and Rose! After Jon rescued Ygritte, the two characters caught feelings, and the onscreen chemistry translated to the stars. Kit reflected on the series, and called meeting Rose his favorite part of filming the second season in a 2016 Vogue interview. “The three weeks in Iceland when we were shooting the second season. Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,” he said. “If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it’s becomes very easy to fall in love.”

While the couple stuck together in real life, their onscreen romance came to an end when (spoiler alert) Ygritte was killed in season four of Game Of Thrones. While Kit continued working on the show, Rose made sure that he didn’t spoil anything for her. “I for sure ask Kit not to show me his excitement after he has read an episode, simply because I don’t want to read anything in his eyes,” she told Entertainment Weekly in 2018. “So when he’s at the other end of the room and reading the episode, it’s like, no … we are not going to have eye contact for a long time. Go make a cup of tea. Calm down.”
The pair go public with their relationship
Kit and Rose usually keep their relationship to themselves, but the pair went public in 2016 at the Olivier Awards, when they arrived on the red carpet, after there had been rumors that they’d been dating for years, sparking with their onscreen chemistry in 2012.

After years of dating, the couple announced that they were engaged in The Times in September 2017. “The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire,” the announcement in the paper said. Before they announced their engagement, Australian superstar Nicole Kidman pressed Kit to marry his girlfriend during a June 2017 interview on The Late Late Show With James Corden. Kit mentioned that he and Rose had moved in together, while he appeared alongside Nicole on the talk show. She asked if they had wedding bells in the future, after moving in. “I’ve been put on the spot by Nicole Kidman,” he quipped.

The couple tied the knot on June 23, 2018 at Scotland’s Kirkton of Rayne and had a reception at Wardhill Castle, via Harper’s Bazaar. Plenty of their GOT co-stars helped celebrate their nuptials including Sophie Turner and Peter Dinklage. The pair also paid tribute to their meeting on the show with an invitation that had a stamp of Jon Snow to invite their friends and family to the ceremony, per DailyMail.

Rose announced that she was pregnant when she debuted her baby bump in an issue of Make Magazine in September 2020. While the couple never made a formal announcement that Rose had given birth, the actress was seen out carrying the little one in a carrier in February. It was later confirmed that they’d had a boy by E! News.

Angelina Jolie, 46, may get a lot of attention for her acting talents, but she’s also seemed to get the same amount of attention for her personal life over the years.

Jonny Lee Miller was Angelina’s first husband. The British actor met the actress on the set of the film Hackers in 1995 and began dating shortly after. They got hitched in 1996 and Angelina wowed the public when she reportedly used her own blood to write Jonny’s name on a white shirt she borrowed from him to wear at their wedding. Their marriage lasted until 1999 and Angelina later reportedly opened up to the Calgary Sun about how the split was not because they had a bad marriage.
“Jonny and I never fought and we never hurt each other. I really wanted to be his wife. I really wanted to commit,” she explained to the outlet, according to The Mirror.
Despite not being romantically involved for many years, the two have seemed to stay friendly and in the summer of 2021, Angelina was spotted visiting Jonny’s NYC area apartment on multiple occasions. They were also seen getting dinner in Los Angeles, CA in Oct. 2021.
In addition to his marriage to Angelina, Jonny, who was raided in south west London, is known for appearing in various films and television series, including Trainspotting, Smith, Eli Stone, Dexter, and Elementary. His grandfather was Bernard Lee, who was known for appearing in as M in the first eleven James Bond films.
After Angelina, Jonny married actress and model Michele Hicks in 2008 and they had their son Buster in Dec. 2008. They divorced in 2018.
Billy Bob Thornton

Billy Bob Thornton was Angelina’s second husband. They got married in 2000 after starring together in the 1999 film Pushing Tin. The lovebirds, who were 20 years apart in age, got a lot of attention from the media for their ongoing PDA at events and other outings. They also made headlines for reportedly wearing vials of each other’s blood around their necks to further show off their deep love. Although she was still married to Billy at the time, Angelina adopted her son Maddox from Cambodia as a single parent in March 2002, when he was just seven-months-old, and she and Billy later separated in June 2002 before getting divorced the following year.
In addition to being Angelina’s husband at one time, Billy has led a successful acting, filmmaking, and music career since he was young. He grew up at numerous places in Arkansas and got his first big break with the 1992 thriller One False Move, which he co-wrote and starred in. Since then, he’s been in various other films and television shows, including Sling Blade, Primary Colors, Monster’s Ball, Bad Santa, and Fargo. He’s won a variety of prestigious awards for his acting and filmmaking career,
Billy’s music career started in the 1970s when he played drums for the blues rock band Tres Hombres. He later was a part of the South African rock band Jack Hammer and has also released a number of solo albums, including Private Radio, The Edge of the World, Hobo, and Beautiful Door.
Billy’s been married six times as of 2021, including his marriage to Angelina, and has four children from three different women. His first wife was Melissa Lee Gatlin, whom he was married to from 1978 until 1980. They had a daughter Amanda Brumfield, who in 2008, made headlines for being sentenced to 20 years in prison for the death of her friend’s one-year-old daughter and was reportedly released in 2020 after maintaining her innocence.
Billy went on to marry actress Toni Lawrence in 1986 but they separated in 1987 and got divorced a year later. He was then married to actress Cynda Williams from 1990 until 1992. His fourth wife was Playboy model Pietra Dawn Cherniak with whom he had two sons, Harry and William. The marriage lasted from 1993 until 1997. After his marriage to Angelina, Billy began a relationship with makeup artist Connie Angland in 2002 and they had a daughter named Bella. They eventually got married in 2014.

Brad Pitt is the third husband of Angelina and the father of her six children. He started a relationship with her after they both appeared in the film, Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004. During the filming, Brad was still married to actress Jennifer Aniston, whom he exchanged vows with in 2000, which caused headline-making controversy, but he and Angelina insisted there was no infidelity even though they “fell in love” on the set. Brad and Jennifer announced their decision to separate in Jan. 2005 and Jennifer filed for divorce two months later.
When Brad and Angelina started dating, they started going on many outings together in 2005. People dubbed their romance “Brangelina” and they went on to get even more serious when they expanded their family biologically and through adoption. Brad adopted Angelina’s first son Maddox and the couple went on to adopt their daughter Zahara from Ethiopia in 2005. They welcomed their biological daughter Shiloh in 2006 and in 2007, they adopted their son Pax from Vietnam. In 2008, Angelina and Brad also welcomed their biological twin daughter, Vivienne, and son Knox.
After expanding their family, Angelina and Brad decided to get married in 2014 but by 2016, they had separated and their divorce was finalized in 2019. They also went through a headline-making custody battle with their children.
Before his marriage to Angelina, Brad was a well-established actor and one of the biggest names in Hollywood. He was born in Oklahoma and raised in Missouri before he first stepped into a big spotlight when he starred in the 1991 film Thelma & Louise. He went on to appear in other big films such as Legends of the Fall, Interview with the Vampire, Ocean’s Eleven, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. He’s won numerous awards for his acting work and has also served as a film producer.
As of 2021, Jennifer and Angelina are Brad’s only previous marriages.

Despite the reports, Salma, herself has stayed tightlipped about their first meeting but did call it “romantic” in an interview. “It’s such a romantic, amazing story, but it is mine.

Salma and Francois-Henri announced their engagement in 2007 along with the equally exciting news that they were expecting their first child together. “Businessman François-Henri Pinault, and his fiancée, Salma Hayek, are happy to announce they are expecting the arrival of their first child,” a statement from the couple read at the time.

What Has Salma Said About Francois-Henri?

Salma has gushed over Francois-Henri many times over the years. “In pictures, you cannot begin to guess the magic in him. He’s made me become a much better person and grow in such a good, healthy way,” she told Dax Shepard on the Armchair Expert podcast. “When I married him, everybody said, ‘Oh, it’s [an] arranged marriage. She married him for the money.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, whatever, b*tch. Think what you want. Fifteen years together.’ And we are strong in love, and I don’t even get offended.”
Does the ‘Teen Mom OG’ star have a new beau? Amber Portwood was spotted holding hands with a new man, almost two weeks after coming out as bisexual.
Amber Portwood seems like she might be dating a new man! The 31-year-old Teen Mom star was spotted out and about in Los Angeles, holding hands with a new man, for the first time since she came out as bisexual earlier in October. The reality star and her mystery man kept a pretty low profile, as they walked around LA together.

The pair were both dressed pretty casually for the weekend outing. Amber rocked a brown dress with matching boots, as she tied a denim jacket around her waste. She also sported a black face mask, sunglasses, and a necklace. The unidentified companion wore a white Miles Davis t-shirt under a gray zip-up sweatshirt, black pants and a red pair of sneakers. He also wore a black face mask and sunglasses, and he carried a backpack with him. The Teen Mom OG star and the mystery man were both pretty inconspicuous, as they were out and about.
Amber came out as bisexual during the October 12 episode of Teen Mom OG. She opened up about her sexuality, when she revealed that she was writing a second book after her 2014 debut Never Too Late. Amber also admitted that she’d once had a relationship with another woman that lasted eight months. She said she’d been inspired to come out for her children Leah, 12, and James, 3. Amber stated that her ex and Leah’s father Gary Shirley already knew she was bisexual, but admitted that they likely wouldn’t see eye-to-eye on it. “I think he’s going to think it’ll be bad for Leah,” she said. “He doesn’t even like the thought of therapy to help [my relationship with Leah]. This is just another embarrassment to [him].”
Holly Robinson Peete has her fingers crossed a ‘Hanging with Mr. Cooper’ reboot happens soon as she teams up with her daughter to discuss ADHD awareness.
Holly Robinson Peete, 57, is hopeful there will be a Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper reboot happening sooner rather than later since co-stars Mark Curry, 60, and Raven-Symoné, 35, are in. “He wants to do it,” Holly told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY during an episode of TVTalk on Instagram Live alongside daughter Ryan Peete, 24, who partnered with More to ADHD to help raise awareness during ADHD awareness month. “Raven Symoné said she would do it, so we’re just waiting on Warner Brothers to give us a green light. I hangout with Mark Curry all of the time in real life. I still hang with Mr. Cooper very often and we are buddies ’til we die. I love it.”
The show was a smash hit back when it premiered in 1993 and moved to the ABC’s infamous TGIF Friday night line-up during season 2. The show centered around teacher and PE coach Mark Cooper, played by Curry, and his roommate Vanessa, played by Holly. The roommates also included Mark’s cousins, including Raven, who played Nicole and was practically a daughter to him. Mark and Vanessa eventually date and later become engaged.
Although the show was cancelled in 1997 after 5 seasons, Holly knows exactly where her character would be today. “I think Vanessa would’ve married very rich,” Holly said. “She’d be well taken care of and lots of Louboutins. Maybe she’d be on her third or fourth marriage now. Who knows. She was so much fun to play because she was so ditzy and loud and wrong all of the time, but she was so fearless and fun and I love the physical comedy. I miss jumping in trash cans and falling down and doing that kind of stuff. For me, her character was a total dream to play. I’m ready to put my Loubs and my knee pads and do my stunts.”
During the time of TGIF reboots from the 90s like Fuller House and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Holly explains where the process is. “We’ve been talking about it over the years for so many years and with so many reboots come and gone, it’s like, “Where’s Cooper?” Holly revealed. “I feel like it’s the natural progression of things. My fingers are crossed that we’ll be able to do it. There’s not a script yet, but we’re going to keep trying.”
But right now, it’s all about family for the actress! Her Hallmark movie Our Christmas Journey is loosely based on her autistic son’s life and her real life work alongside Ryan to raise awareness for ADHD, something she missed as a mother growing up. “I am a typical Virgo mom and beat myself up every single day. I’m a hot mommy mess and Ryan will tell you, I’m always like, “I should’ve done this, I should’ve done that,” Holly said. “I’m always that person looking in hindsight, but by the same token, I’m also someone who’s proactive and looking to pivot and support someone who’s dealing with what I’m dealing with who maybe had less access to resources and information. I’m a little bit of both which drives everyone a bit crazy in the house but it’s all good.”

Joel offered condolences to Halyna’s family in his statement as he paid tribute to his co-worker. “I am gutted by the loss of my friend and colleague, Halyna. She was kind, vibrant, incredibly talented, fought for every inch, and always pushed me to be better,” he said. “I am humbled and grateful by the outpouring of affection we have received from our filmmaking community, the people of Santa Fe, and the hundreds of strangers who have reached out….. It will surely aid in my recovery.”
During the accident, Joel had reportedly been hit in the shoulder and taken to a New Mexico hospital. He was released on Friday. The Glengarry Glen Ross actor had discharged the prop-gun, while filming on location at Bonanza Creek Ranch on Thursday October 21. A search warrant document obtained by NBC News following the shooting revealed that Alec had thought the gun was unloaded prior to firing and was told that it was safe to use.
After the incident, Alec tweeted a statement, where he also mourned the tragic loss of Halyna in the accident. “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours,” he wrote, mentioning that he was helping police in their investigation into the accident. The actor also mentioned that he was speaking to the cinematographer’s husband and offering support to her loved ones. “My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna,” he tweeted.
