James Charles sent a heartfelt apology to Alicia Keys after tweeting about her planned beauty line, acknowledging that he committed a ‘microagression’ by questioning her intentions.

James Charles is owning up to his mistakes and delivering a public apology to Alicia Keys for slamming her upcoming beauty line with e.l.f. Cosmetics. The beauty vlogger, 21, took to Twitter on August 6 to explain why he subtweeted the “Girl on Fire” singer the day prior — and why he now realizes it was unacceptable. “Yesterday I posted a subtweet about how I thought some celebrities shouldn’t launch makeup lines,” James began. “It was about @aliciakeys. A few years ago, she announced that she would no longer wear makeup, so I was bothered because many celebrities come into the beauty space as a cash grab without any actual passion and then leave.”

“I deleted the tweet after a few mins because it’s childish to indirect tweet someone and I am not the gatekeeper of makeup,” James continued. “Anyone should be able to secure their bag and it’s not up to me which brands people should or shouldn’t support. I’m now glad that I DID delete it because after reading further, I learned that the beauty line is SKINCARE. This was my mistake and I should’ve read more before tweeting, because literally who BETTER to talk about keeping your skin clear without makeup?

“Regardless of my intention with my tweet, it ended up being a microagression against someone I respect, so to @aliciakeys I owe a direct apology — I’m sorry. It wasn’t my place to gate keep this industry. I can’t wait to support and try out the products and I know the brand will be worth a billion in a few years,” James concluded. Alicia has not responded to James at this time.

It was announced earlier on August 5 that the Grammy-winner would be launching her own “lifestyle and beauty” brand with e.l.f. Cosmetics. The exact products the line would include weren’t announced, and since she famously declared in 2016 that she won’t wear makeup anymore (she now does from time to time), James raised an eyebrow. His deleted subtweet read, “People who do not wear makeup should not be coming out with makeup brands but that’s just my opinion.” He also liked several tweets from YouTuber Manny MUA that shaded Alicia.

“Does anyone else get slightly irritated when celebs come out with entire makeup lines? especially when those celebs don’t even wear makeup… i’m like girl,” Manny wrote. He added in subsequent tweets that he understood why celebs like Rihanna or Kylie Jenner would put out makeup lines, because they’re “known for their makeup.” James agreed with a like. Alicia’s E.L.F. line sounds fabulous. As James realized, it does not include makeup. Instead, it will offer quality skincare products at an affordable price.

The line doesn’t have an official name yet. E.l.f. said in a statement that everything will be cruelty-free, dermatologist-developed, and “inspired by Keys’s own skin-care journey.” Said Kory Marchisotto, e.l.f.’s chief marketing officer, “Alicia is not just an icon, she is an inspiration. Her perspective on beauty is soulful and timeless. Together we are painting the highest vision to blaze a new trail in beauty. Alicia inspires millions of people everyday. And now, more than ever, the world is craving a vision that is more than skin deep.”

Garcelle Beauvais is ‘hoping’ Bravo asks her to return to ‘RHOBH’ after she brought a fresh and funny personality to the explosive 10th season! However, one cast member warned her that every rookie’s 2nd season isn’t so pleasant.

Garcelle Beauvais is hopeful that Bravo will ask her to return as a full-time cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But, she’s admittedly scared to return after costar Lisa Rinna shared some veteran tea with her. “At the reunion, actually, Rinna said, ‘Your first season is always nice and pleasant and the second one they come for you,’” Garcelle recalled on SiriusXM’s EW Live with Jessica Shaw on August 6. “And I said ‘is that a warning’ and she said ‘yes!’ So I’m a little scared. I’m a little scared,” she admitted.

As HollywoodLife previously reported, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 10 reunion was filmed on July 16. And, things presumably got heated because following the taping, both Garcelle and Denise Richards  unfollowed Rinna on social media. Additionally, The Bold and the Beautiful actress also unfollowed costars Erika Jayne Girardi and Teddi Mellencamp.

Elsewhere in Garcelle’s interview, Shaw asked if the women got together after the Season 10 reunion taping to “rehash everything.” It turns out that some of them did, and two others apparently didn’t get the invite.

“No one talked. Apparently some of them got together afterwards but me and Sutton weren’t invited,” Garcelle revealed, adding that not everyone received Denise’s cease and desist letter. “Some people got it. I did not get a cease and desist,” she said, noting that it was “amazing that she [Denise] was able to do that, honestly.” Garcelle also revealed that the cease and desist letter will be discussed at the reunion. “Yes of course, come on. Rinna’s gonna bring it up, absolutely,” she said.

Garcelle also weighed in on if she believes Denise will return for Season 11, following the drama about her alleged affair with Brandi Glanville — which was the central topic of Season 10. “We talked about that yesterday. I said I hope so,” Garcelle said, explaining, “She’s like if you don’t come back, I’m not coming back and I’m like and if you don’t come back, I’m not coming back.”

A source with knowledge of the Season 10 reunion taping previously told HollywoodLife that Denise took the “brunt” of the drama from the other women. “The ladies went in really hard on Denise at the reunion. Despite this, she held her own very well and fought back,” the insider said.

Fans of the show will know that Denise has been accused all season of having an alleged affair with former full-time Beverly Hills Housewife Brandi — during her marriage with Aaron Phypers. Denise has vehemently denied the affair allegation since the news was reported in early January. Denise has also made it clear on the show that she and Aaron “do not have an open marriage.”

The actress added that Bravo is thinking about beginning filming on Season 11 in September. Though the network has not confirmed anything about the next season. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Bravo Wednesdays at 9 pm ET. Check back at HollywoodLife for weekly recaps and more exclusive tea!

T.I. and Tiny’s daughter Heiress Harris already knows how throw a mood around. She got saucy in a video, saying ‘don’t play with me,’ and was not referring to toys.

Heiress Diana Harris has shown that at her young age, she’s already inherited plenty of sass from her famous parents T.I. and Tiny Harris. The four-year-old is so smart, and totally picks up on the sayings she hears around her. On Aug. 6, Tiny shared an Instagram video of her daughter wearing a straight blonde wig, and it seemed to give Heiress some fierce feelings. Tiny could be heard saying “Yess poo!!” and cooing at Heiress as she struck a pose full of attitude. She then sassed off, repeatedly saying “Don’t play with me!”

Heiress wasn’t talking about toys or other ways that kids “play.” She was using the term for “don’t mess with me!” and Tiny broke out in hysterics. Heiress even moved her arms in a way that showed she didn’t want anyone getting her twisted up. She likely learned the line from one of her parents…as fans totally thought she was channeling Tip in the moment.

Heiress looked so adorable in the blonde wig, which she modeled knowing that gave her a whole new personality. While her aqua blue t-shirt with cupcakes and pandas on it was still that of a little girl, her attitude with the wig on was that of a sassy adult!

Tiny, 45, captioned the video, “You heard what she said…@heiressdharris,” proud of her little one. The Xscape singer then added, “Life as I know it is full with (smiling emoji) thank you to everyone who watched & supported our new show The Mix on @foxsoul. The Harris family & cast appreciates the love.” Tiny is the executive producer of the new show, which is the latest in her music and TV empire with T.I.

Fans went wild for the video of Heiress. @theonlyshakur commented, “She sent me over the edge…she said what she said,” while @therealshanta1 warned Tiny, “Y’all got your hands full honey.” Several fans noted that she was totally her daddy’s mini-me with what she said, with @teepacshakur1 writing, “Her daddy came out of her quick.” @601.tippy gushed, “Heiress is a whole mood. diva in the making,” as @ t_morgan101 noticed, “That wig made her move a little differently. ‘Don’t play with her,’” along with laughing/crying face emojis. Heiress’s amazing personality just grows by the day, as she shown in TikTok videos. She’s already a little superstar.

Trouble in paradise? Garrett Yrigoyen removed some sweet moments with his fiancee, former ‘Bachelorette’ Becca Kufrin on Instagram — which has fans wondering if they’ve split. Here’s what we know!

Are Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen over? Bachelor Nation fans are concerned about the couple’s fate after noticing that Garrett, 31, deleted his “Becca Spills” highlight reel, located on his Instagram page. The reel  included cute clips of the former Bachelorette, 30, throughout their relationship. Though, there are photos of the couple still posted to Garrett’s Instagram.

As for Becca, she still features her “G Cam” highlight on her Instagram account. The reel is obviously dedicated to her fiancé, who also appears in her “Quarantine” reel — the most recent highlight on her page.

Becca and Garrett were the subject of breakup separation this summer over a separate social media situation. In June, Garrett came under fire after he posted controversial comments in support of police officers amid the Black Lives Matter protests.

Becca later addressed the situation during a June 9 episode of her “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast. “Garrett is my fiancé and I love him and to his core, I believe that he is a good person,” she explained at the time noting, “What he posted … I don’t align with and I don’t agree with.”

On a separate episode of her podcast, which she cohosts with former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay, Becca further discussed her and Garrett’s opposing opinions on the matter.

“For those who are curious about my relationship with Garrett at this point, all I can say right now is I don’t know,” she admitted during the June 16 episode. “I can’t give anything more than that. It’s something that we are trying to work through and discuss and do work on at home at this time and that’s where the work will remain and that’s really the best can give you at this point.”

Becca and Garrett, who got engaged in August of 2018 during the Season 14 finale of The Bachelorette, have been spending time apart, as seen on their social media accounts. While she’s addressed the tension in their relationship, he’s remained silent.

It’s unclear what the future holds for the couple, though Becca admitted on her podcast in July, “I’m learning a lot more about myself and my friends and my family and just having new conversations that I’ve never had before in my life.” Becca also noted at the time, that she feels as though she’s “being tested.” We’ll have to wait and see what happens.

Two two stars from the original 1993 ‘Jurassic Park’ film are thrilling fans with photos that they’re on set and back in character for ‘Jurassic World 3: Dominion.’

At 53-years-old, actress Laura Dern‘s career has never been hotter. So the team behind the upcoming Jurassic World 3 was smart enough to snag the very busy Big Little Lies star to return to the dinosaurs run amok franchise after she starred in the OG film, 1993’s Jurassic Park. It’s going to be a great big slice of nostalgia for fans of the Steven Spielberg directed classic, as she’s stepping back into her Dr. Ellie Sattler role. And as if that wasn’t big enough news for fans, Sam Neill is returning as Dr. Alan Grant!

Day one. Hello old friend. #jurassicworlddominion

A post shared by Laura Dern (@lauradern) on Aug 4, 2020 at 12:42pm PDT


Laura broke the amazing news to fans with an Aug. 4 Instagram post that showed two chairs on set of the film — which is currently shooting in Hawaii — and her character’s name along with Sam’s were written across the black fabric in white lettering. Laura captioned the photo, “Day one. Hello old friend. #jurassicworlddominion.”

The 2017 Emmy and 2020 Oscar winner‘s post came a day after Sam tweeted a photo of his brown fedora hat he wore in the original Jurassic Park, along with the same message, “Hello old friend.” He tagged his co-stars from over 25 years ago, Laura and Jeff Goldblum, along with the Jurassic World franchise stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. JEFF FRIGGIN GOLDBLUM is back with his old crew?? Alan, Ellie and Ian Malcolm back among dinosaurs? This movie cannot come out soon enough.

— Sam Neill (@TwoPaddocks) August 4, 2020

The best news of all is, Sam, Laura and Jeff all have major roles in the upcoming film instead of just glorified cameos, according to movieweb.com. Colin Trevorrow is back to direct Jurassic World: Dominion, and co-wrote the script. That means the film is in familiar hands, as Colin directed the original 2015 Jurassic World film, so he’s deeply familiar with Chris’ Owen and Bryce’s Clare characters.

Shooting is underway in Hawaii, which has been the primary location for all of  films in in the franchise. It stood in for the fictional Island Nublar, with much of the shooting taking place on Oahu’s Kualoa Ranch. But a volcano blew apart Island Nublar in 2018’s Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom, so there’s always the fictional Isla Sorna, or Site B, featured in The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III that could be resurrected for the new film. Hopefully by the time the movie is ready for release, the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. will be under control and American theaters can reopen to audiences once again. Because no matter how big a home TV is, Jurassic movies are meant to be seen on the big screen.

Nicole and Thom’s summer expeditions also took them to Portugal in July, where they filmed the hottest (and probably funniest) couple’s video.

Demi Lovato just got engaged to fiancé Max Ehrich two weeks ago, but she’s already thinking about her wedding day — and definitely wants to include Max’s parents!

Demi Lovato, 27, is already thinking about her wedding to Max Ehrich, 29! “Demi hasn’t stopped smiling from ear to ear since Max proposed and she has so many ideas for her wedding day, but nothing has been set in stone yet,” a source close to the Confident singer spilled to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “Demi will likely do something classic and elegant, but she’s always been one to make her own rules so she’ll definitely include touches that will make their wedding stand out from the rest,” the insider dished.

Max popped the question to Demi in a romantic beach proposal on July 23 after four months of dating, and had the entire thing captured on camera by photographer Angelo Kritikos (including a shot of her spectacular $1 million ring). When it comes to planning their special day, Max — who stars on The Young & The Restless — will be there every step of the way. “Max is so excited too and he absolutely wants to be included in every step of the planning process which Demi loves,” our source said, adding that she wants her guests to be surprised. “Whatever decisions she makes, she wants to keep it all under wraps because she wants to surprise her guests with a big reveal,” they explained.

When I was a little girl, my birth dad always called me his “little partner” – something that might’ve sounded strange without his southern cowboy like accent. To me it made perfect sense. And today that word makes perfect sense again but today I’m officially going to be someone else’s partner. @maxehrich – I knew I loved you the moment I met you. It was something I can’t describe to anyone who hasn’t experienced it firsthand but luckily you did too.. I’ve never felt so unconditionally loved by someone in my life (other than my parents) flaws and all. You never pressure me to be anything other than myself. And you make me want to be the best version of myself. I’m honored to accept your hand in marriage. I love you more than a caption could express but I’m ecstatic to start a family and life with you. I love you forever my baby. My partner. Here’s to our future!!!! 😩😭❤️🥰😍 Ps. THANK YOU @angelokritikos FOR HIDING BEHIND ROCKS AND CAPTURING THE ENTIRE THING!!! I love you boo!!!

A post shared by Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) on Jul 22, 2020 at 10:46pm PDT


While there’s no doubt Demi’s mom Dianna De La Garza and step dad Eddie will help her with whatever she needs, the Camp Rock alum also wants to make sure Max’s parents have a say. “Demi loves everything about Max including his parents,” a second source revealed. “They have been so welcoming to her and even though she isn’t able to see them in person yet she talks to them all the time because Max is so close to them. She feels lucky that she’s getting such a great in-laws and she can’t wait for them all to be able to get together,” they also said. Outside of her parents, Demi has big sister Dallas, 32, and little sis Madison, 18, to lean on, too.

Hours after Paris Jackson cried during her Facebook watch series that she couldn’t see her life without boyfriend Gabriel Glenn, they broke up! We have how she’s handling the split.

Talk about timing! Paris Jackson and boyfriend Gabriel Glenn‘s Facebook Watch docuseries Unfiltered had just dropped it’s season finale on Aug. 4, when hours later news broke that the pair had split up. Despite her weeping that she couldn’t picture life without him and that he “showed me love does exist,” Paris wants to go about life on her own now. “Paris and Gabriel have broken up, but it was completely amicable and neither of them hold any grudges or animosity toward one another. Their relationship simply ran its course and it was time for her to move on,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

Not only were Paris and Gabriel a couple, they performed as the musical duo The Soundflowers. Now Paris is likely going it alone in music as well as being boyfriend-free. “Paris is handling the break up well and she’s taking this time to focus on her passion which has always been her music. She’s in good spirits and wishes nothing but the best for Gabriel. Paris is looking forward to working on her music and focusing on herself at the moment. It’s way too soon to think about dating again, and that’s not something she’s looking for right now,” our insider continues.

Paris explained in the season finale of Unfiltered: Paris Jackson and Gabriel Glenn that, “I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future. But obviously there’s someone that I strive to be and I want to grow and become a better person, better musician, this that the other. But I can’t do this without Gabe.” The couple had been together romantically since early 2018, and formed The Soundflowers in June of that year.

The episode was titled “What Does Paris Jackson Want?” and ended with her in tears, saying “He makes me not feel as alone. He’s had an impact on me and my life and my heart in ways that I can’t even describe. And I can’t see my life without him.” That seemed to indicate that there could be a season two for the pair,  but that’s obviously not the case anymore.

“The timing is rough for Gabe because their show just came out and they aren’t together anymore. But the good thing is that they’re still good friends. Gabe is sad things ended, but he’s not angry and he’s still very loyal to Paris and says he will always love her,” a second source tells us EXCLUSIVELY.

“Gabe seems hopeful that his band with Paris will still carry on, but right now he’s busy with his other band [The Trash Dogs]. They have a new song out and he’s very excited about it,” our insider adds. Gabe sings and plays guitar for the rock band, which has been releasing music since 2016. At least he has that gig to fall back on if his musical duo with Paris is done for good. Gabe did say during the final Unfiltered episode that, “I think we said it when we first got together that if we didn’t work out as a couple, like we’ll always be in a band together. Our music was one thing we want to hold on to no matter what.”

Jamie Foxx shared the sweet ways he’s been able to bond and celebrate with his two daughters, Corinne and Annalise, while quarantining with his ‘whole family.’

Jamie Foxx, 52, has a lot in common with his two daughters Corinne, 26, and Annalise, 11! The Oscar-winning actor opened up about his children while chatting about quarantining with his “whole family” (he “hunkered down” with 15 people total) in a video interview with Entertainment Tonight, shared on Aug. 5.

Jamie, who has put out five studio albums since 1994, and his younger daughter have been “able to connect” through their mutual love of music. “My 11-year-old now knows how to play the piano so well, she actually plays my songs while I sing to them,” Jamie revealed while talking about Annalise. “She said, ‘I am going on tour with you.’ I am blessed, we are all blessed.”

Meanwhile, Jamie is celebrating the acting accomplishments of his eldest daughter, Corinne.

The proud dad added, “She did something fantastic that night when she was Live In Front of A Studio Audience to do Good Times.“

Jamie was also promoting his own project: a Netflix film called Project Power, which he acted in alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Machine Gun Kelly and Dominique Fishback and will premiere on Aug. 14. Corinne once spilled her dad’s acting advice in an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife, which she admittedly didn’t find that useful.

“My dad tells me, ‘[Acting’s] easy Corinne’. And I’m like, ‘Dad that isn’t advice.’ And he’s like, ‘No, really, anyone can do it, it really is easy.’…Okay, maybe for you as [an] Oscar winner, but I need a little more advice than that,” Corinne amusingly told us at Variety’s Young Hollywood Awards In Los Angeles in Aug. 2018. Well, two years later, it looks like Jamie’s advice was actually useful — Corinne can now say she acted in an Emmy-nominated show!

I basically had every Covid symptom,” the Charmed alum explained. “At the very end of march I took two covid19 tests and both were negative…After living the last 4 months with lingering symptoms like, vertigo, stomach abnormalities, irregular periods, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, zero short term memory, and general malaise, I went and got an antibody test from a blood draw (not the finger prick) from a lab. I am POSITIVE for covid antibodies. I had Covid19,” she said in her lengthy Instagram post, shared on Wednesday, Aug. 5.

I count my blessings and urge you to keep wearing the damn mask, keep washing your hands, and stay socially distant.” he wrote. Brian shared an accompanying video where he donated plasma so the antibodies could be retrieved to help those suffering with more serious cases of virus.

I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus. Stay home people and be pragmatic. I will keep you updated on how I’m doing. No panic.”

With the World Health Organization reporting almost 125,000 cases of the COVID-19 coronavirus within the first weeks of the pandemic, the odds that stars from the movie, television, music, and entertainment world would be spared were low. It was just a matter of time before a huge name reported that they’ve contracted COVID-19, but no one expected that name to be national treasure, Tom Hanks. Tom, 63, confirmed on Mar. 11 that he and his wife, Rita Wilson, 63, had come down with COVID-19 while he was filming an Elvis Presley biopic on The Gold Coast in Australia. Tom gave an update a day later, saying that he and his wife were “in isolation, so we do not spread it to anyone else.”

“There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one-day-at-a-time. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no?” he added, delivering a message that seemed to dispel any potential stigmas associated with the disease while also encouraging people to stay grounded. “Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball.”

For anyone out there that is hesitant to self quarantine… please do yourself and your loved ones a favor and stay home. We will all beat this and come out stronger on the other side. I’ll keep you posted, Love y’all.

There might be some crying over baseball. The 2020 MLB season was delayed, and Spring Training was canceled as part of preventive measures. This followed similar steps by the NHL, NCAA, and MLS, who all reacted after the NBA paused its season after Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert, 27, tested positive. Shortly afterward, his teammate, Donovan Mitchell, 23, was also diagnosed with coronavirus. Overseas, European soccer was wrecked by the disease, with many games being held in empty stadiums and leagues suspending play.

In Italy – the country who reported the second-highest number of deaths from coronavirus in the early weeks, only topped by mainland China – everything was shut down, including the Serie A soccer league. After Cristiano Ronaldo’s teammate Daniele Rugani tested positive, the Juventus squad went into lockdown. The team’s “football players, staff members, directors, entourage and Juventus employees are observing a period of voluntary home isolation, in compliance with the requirements of the health authorities based on the provisions currently in force.”

This morning I tested positive for Covid 19. I feel ok, I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus. Stay home people and be pragmatic. I will keep you updated on how I’m doing 👊🏾👊🏾 No panic. pic.twitter.com/Lg7HVMZglZ

On March 15, there was another confirmed celebrity case, as former Bond girl, Olga Kurylenko, confirmed that she had tested positive for the illness. Olga played Camille in Quantum of Solace, and revealed that she is in “self isolation” due to her diagnosis. She had been ill for more than a week before revealing her news to fans. The following day, Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju, 41 — who played wildling Tormund Giantsbane on the HBO show — revealed that he too tested positive for the new coronavirus. He told Instagram fans that he’d be “self-isolating” with his family “for as long as it takes.”

In this time of uncertainty, consult the Center For Disease Control for information about COVID-19, what measures you can take to prevent the spread of coronavirus, what to do if you demonstrate symptoms, and how to not get swept in the hysteria during this time.

Kandi Burruss showed fans that she knows how to have a good time when she brought in dancers for her husband, Todd’s, birthday! The couple and close family and friends all wore face masks for the wild time!

Keeping it safe, keeping it sexy — Kandi Burruss threw her husband, Todd Tucker, a grand birthday celebration on August 4! There basically wasn’t anything that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 47, skimped on for her hubby’s big day. Not only did Kandi follow the necessary safety precautions — requiring all attendees to wear face masks — she went the extra mile to protect those she hired to entertain her guests!

That’s right, Kandi brought in some dancers for her husband’s birthday bash, but don’t worry, they were extra protected thanks to the provisions Kandi made. On her own social media, Kandi captured two dancers in transparent, plastic boxes breaking it down to the music. “When you want to have dancers, but you want to have it COVID free so you put them in a glass box,” Kandi shouted as she captured footage of the ladies at work.

It was a total “transformation of the Kandi factory,” as Kandi noted in her Instagram stories. She turned the entire event into a red light district-esque venue complete with red lighting, balloons, and more! Of course, Kandi and Todd’s pals had an amazing time, and many took to social media to wish Kandi’s beloved a very happy birthday. “Last night celebrated with the birthday boy and some really great solid people..Happy birthday once again to my guy,” Todd and Kandi’s friend, Raymond Santana, wrote in a loving post.

Not only did the party include a saunter on the sexy side, Kandi also arranged for her friends and family to roll a few bowling balls at Bowlmor Lanes! It looked like the entire squad had an amazing time at Todd’s bash, and it’s no surprise, especially considering how much Kandi adores her husband. The couple dated for a few years before announcing their engagement in January 2013.

Todd is a former line producer on RHOA, so it’s no surprise the two became so close so fast! Following their April 2014 nuptials, Todd and Kandi welcomed their first child — son Ace Wells, 4. They had their second child, a daughter named Blaze, 10 months, in November 2019 via surrogate. Kandi also has daughter Riley, 17, from a previous relationship. We know that Todd had the best birthday, and wish him a lifetime of happiness with his wife and family!

Assault survivor Daisy Coleman sadly passed away by suicide at the age of 23 and her hometown sheriff, Randy Strong, who was not the sheriff in her rape incident, is speaking out about her death.

Daisy Coleman‘s body was found in Colorado on Aug. 4 after she passed away by suicide at the age of 23 and now her hometown sheriff, Sheriff Randy Strong, of the Nodaway County Sheriff’s Office in Maryville, Missouri, is speaking out about the shocking and devastating incident. Sheriff Strong admitted that he has been speaking with Daisy’s mother, Melinda Coleman, and found out about what happened late last night. “I stay in touch with her mother and Daisy through Facebook and I saw that Melinda posted that information at around 11:20pm last night, our time here in central time,” Sheriff Strong EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.

He went on to express his heartbreak over Daisy’s death and pointed out that his administration wasn’t involved in the case of her 2012 assault, which put her in the spotlight. “It’s a terrible tragedy. It should have never happened,” he explained. “I came into office after that. That didn’t happen under my administration, we turned things around and it’s just a terrible tragedy.”

Sheriff Strong also commented on the fact that Daisy had a tragic life that not only involved assault, but also the loss of family members. “Yeah, she’s lost her father, her brother,” he said.

Daisy’s passing was first confirmed to the public by her mother, Melinda. The grieving parent took to Facebook to announce the sad news. “My daughter Catherine Daisy Coleman committed suicide tonight,” Melinda wrote in the post. “If you saw crazy messages and posts it was because I called the police to check on her.”

“She was my best friend and amazing daughter,” she continued. “I think she had to make it seem like I could live without her. I can’t. I wish I could have taken the pain from her! She never recovered from what those boys did to her and it’s just not fair. My baby girl is gone.”

Daisy’s death comes after her rape case was featured in Netflix’s popular 2016 documentary Audrie & Daisy. Although the documentary helped to shed light on victims of abuse and how abuse can negatively affect lives for many years to come, Daisy’s appearance in the film led to bullying and backlash in her small town. She still managed to stand up for what she believed in though by becoming an advocate who spoke out against abuse and co-founded the organization called SafeBAE (“Safe Before Anyone Else”), “a survivor-founded, student-led national organization whose mission is to end sexual assault among middle and high school students.”

She was also the subject of a second documentary called Saving Daisy. It is about her “journey of healing from lifelong trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, through EMDR Therapy,” according to the film’s site.

Ariana Grande and her beau Dalton Gomez are so loved up! The duo escaped to Utah for a romantic getaway, and shared some new snaps.

Ariana Grande shared new snaps from her romantic vacation in Canyon Point, Utah with new boyfriend Dalton Gomez! The newly minted 27-year-old took to Instagram on August 5 to post a series of snaps from the couple’s getaway at Amangiri resort. In one snap, the “7 Rings” hitmaker posed for a selfie in a barely-there green triangle bikini.

In another pic, the songstress smiled next her new beau Dalton, and put a grainy black and white filter on the snap. Pal Hailey Baldwin commented a heart eye emoji on the carousel post, which also included pics from the resort including a zig-zag facade of the building, mountains in the distance, and a snap of a desert squirrel. “These are so cute,” one fan commented, while another joked, “plot twist: ariana grande is, in fact, mother nature.”

The resort is a four and a half hour drive from Las Vegas, and is located in the heart of the Grand Circle region. It has easy access to the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park and Monument Valley Tribal Park — however, fans will have to keep their eye on Ari’s socials to see whether her and Dalton go on any hikes!

Prior to celebrating her recent birthday on June 26, she posted a series of photos to her Instagram that featured her cozying up to her new love! Ariana debuted her relationship with Dalton in early May during the music video for her collaboration with Justin Bieber on the song “Stuck With U.” The Los Angeles real estate agent actually met the singer when he sold her the LA house that she currently lives in! What’s more, the two have been quarantining together throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Scott Disick, 37, is loving his son Reign‘s new look! The Talentless founder posted the cutest photo of his 5-year-old showing off his newly shaved head in a Instagram post on Wednesday, Aug. 5. “Play on playa,” Scott hilariously captioned the post, quoting the iconic ’90s throwback song “No Diggity” by Blackstreet. Reign looked so content as he stayed cool in a massive swimming pool, keeping cool in the 75 degree Calabasas weather! The image appeared to be taken in iPhone’s portrait mode, blurring the gorgeous canyon scenery behind Reign as he rested his arms along the edge of the pool.

The post comes just a day after proud mom Kourtney Kardashian, 41, revealed that Reign got his first haircut ever! “I am not ok,” the Poosh founder captioned a photo showing off Reign’s savvy new buzzcut from Jason Schneidman of The Men’s Groomer Shop in Venice, CA. For years, the younger sibling of Mason, 10, and Penelope, 7, had rocked his trademark lengthy locks loud and proud! Reign looks adorable either way, but it seems like Kourtney has had the toughest time adjusting to his fresh new look and even kept his hair as a memento.

“Tell me you saved his hair,” one fan commented on the Keeping Up stars’ post, to which she replied, “It will be with me forever.” Kourtney is so sentimental when it comes to big milestones with her three kids, and it absolutely warms our hearts. KarJenner BFF Simon Huck was also feeling emotional over Reign’s makeover, commenting “I’m shook but also LIVING for the new look.” He can say that again! “I love it,” Kourtney responded to The Spin Crowd alum.

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s have sealed their closeness to each other — and God! — even further. The married couple got baptized while side by side, and the Biebs is sharing the experience with fans.

Both Justin Bieber and wife Hailey Baldwin were raised devout Christians. But the pair wanted the experience of going through the rite of baptism as a married couple. The 26-year-old singer shared a series of photos to his Instagram account on Aug. 5, showing he and his 23-year-old bride in a pool while holding on to their pastor’s hand. It’s unclear when the ceremony took place, but the two have been legally married since Sept. 13, 2018, with a formal wedding coming just over a year later on Sept. 30, 2019.

The moment @haileybieber my wife and I got baptized together! This was one of most special moments of my life. Confessing our love and trust in Jesus publicly with our friends and family.

A post shared by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on Aug 5, 2020 at 1:17pm PDT

Hailey was seen in an orange bikini with her blonde hair pulled back in a black hair clip. It is the same tangerine two-piece by Triangl that she donned in a June 27 Instagram photo during the couple’s road trip through the Utah desert. Justin was wearing tan trunks with a black and white waistband and stripe down the sides. The “Yummy” singer wrote in the caption, “The moment @haileybieber my wife and I got baptized together! This was one of most special moments of my life. Confessing our love and trust in Jesus publicly with our friends and family.”

At least one of the friends present praised the ceremony. E! News and Today Show entertainment journalist Jason Kennedy, 38, wrote in the comments, “One of the top moments of my life doing this with you.” The baptism appeared to take place in an outdoor pool, as sunlight bathed everyone’s skin and bounced off the water.

Justin’s former Pastor Carl Lentz sent his best wishes, writing “Amazing. Love you,” in the comments. Carl detailed in a Dec. 2015 profile by GQ how he baptized the then-troubled pop star in 2014 in NBA player Tyson Chandler’s bathtub. At the time Justin was living with Carl and his wife outside NYC when one day the enormity of his bad boy ways took over and he sobbed, “I want to know Jesus,” to Pastor Carl. Justin asked to be baptized, but couldn’t wait another minute for it to be properly scheduled, pleading “I want to do it now.”

They arrived at= a location in Manhattan where Hillsong Church rented a pool for baptisms, only to be met by hundreds of screaming fans. So they needed somewhere more private. Carl called up then NBA Kicks player Tyson at 2 a.m. after he’d returned home from a game at Madison Square Garden. The athlete agreed they could do the baptism in his apartment building’s private pool. But it turned out to be locked, so Justin fit into the 7ft tall athlete’s home bathtub, which was fortunately built for his large size. Then and there, Justin was reborn, and looked to rebuild his life from his troubled pop star ways.

Obviously his baptism with Hailey was much more sentimental and meaningful, having his loving wife, family and friends by his side this time around instead of his pastor and an NBA player. Justin and Hailey are currently on a cross country road trip, but the singer has been feeling very spiritual lately. He shared an Instagram post on July 30, reading “Jesus is our hope,” along with a lengthy caption about what the savior meant to him.

T.I. and Tiny’s family is expanding! Tiny’s oldest child and T.I.’s stepdaughter, singer Zonnique Pullins, is pregnant. She revealed the big news on Aug. 4

Zonnique Pullins is expecting her first child with rapper boyfriend Bandhunata Izzy! The 24-year-old singer confirmed the the news on Aug. 4 that she is already five months along to PEOPLE magazine. “Literally every year, probably for the past three years, this same rumor [that I was pregnant] had come out. This time I actually am pregnant. It’s weird!” she told the publication. This marks the first child for Zonnique, who is the eldest daughter of Xscape singer Tameka “Tiny” Harris. Tiny’s husband, rapper T.I. is her stepfather.

Zonnique’s pregnancy has been smooth sailing so far. “With it being my first time being pregnant, I had so many expectations and was thinking, ‘Oh, it’s going to be really hard,’” she told the magazine. “I never really had morning sickness.” But being pregnant during COVID-19 has had its drawbacks. “When it comes to going to doctor’s appointments, I go to all of them by myself. I ask every single time, ‘Can I bring my boyfriend?’ And they’re like, ‘No, only you can come,’” the singer explained. “That’s been the worst part. I’m hoping by the time I’m ready to have the baby it will be over with. But I’m sure it won’t be, so I’ll be in there with one person, most likely. I’m just trying not to get my hopes too high anymore.”

Zonnique’s mom Tiny took to Instagram to share the news after her daughter’s big announcement. Next to a her daughter getting her bump pictures taken on a professional photoshoot, Tiny wrote, “I can finally say…My baby is having a baby!! I’m getting more excited by the day!! @zonniquejailee @bandhunta_izzy Congratulations to you both!! I love y’all.”

Despite keeping the news private, Zonnique responded to pregnancy speculation before she confirmed the news. After fans began questioning if she was expecting, Zonnique took to social media with this response: “I wanna be on my Nicki Minaj sh-t. Not gonna be f–king loud answering to y’all like I got to,” she wrote, before telling her followers to mind their business. Zonnique was referencing Nicki Minaj, who kept her first pregnancy a secret, before revealing her baby bump in a series of photos on July 20.

It’s unclear when Zonnique and Izzy began dating, though they’ve been serious for the past year or so. As for whether or not Tip approves of Zonnique’s baby’s father? — That’s a yes, although the rapper isn’t all that easy to please.

While discussing the lives of MCs and rappers on his podcast, Tip and fellow rapper Fabolous, discussed their daughters’ relationships with rappers. Fabolous’ stepdaughter, Taina Williams, is dating Chicago rapper G Herbo.

“I must say, the young man that she’s dealing with, he’s a cool cat. He’s a respectable young man,” Tip said of Izzy, explaining, “I even went so far as to check his background, where he’s from, and his pedigree seems to come back without a tarnish. So I don’t have anything negative to say about him. However, I am uncomfortable with what may potentially transpire in the future. Now that’s my discomfort exclusively. I don’t share that discomfort with her or him. I try not to let my level of discomfort bleed over into their happiness,” he said, adding, “I just remain quietly uncomfortable, to myself [laughs].”

Tip later added that he hopes Zonnique makes it to the alter with Izzy. “I’ll admit this, they’ve lasted a lot longer than I expected, so at this point, I’m rooting for them to go all the way,” he said.

Zonnique also purchased her first home in 2018, as seen on Tiny’s Instagram. The Grammy-winner shared a photo of Zonnique, who was pictured holding the keys to her new digs.

“Super proud of My 1st,” Tiny wrote in the photo’s caption. “@zonniquejailee she bought her first house today!! Congratulations my beauty Queen… Your mama loves u lady!”

Now that Kailyn Lowry’s fourth son has arrived, the ‘Teen Mom 2’ star has drank her placenta, which she saved following his July 30 birth. She had it mixed into a berry smoothie and shared the experience with fans.

The placenta bring nutrients from a mom to her baby when it’s in the womb, and many new mothers believe it still contains vital post-natal energy nourishment. That’s why Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry, 28, had the placenta from her new son’s July 30 birth blended with fresh fruit and almond milk, making for quite a smoothie! On Aug. 4, she shared Instagram stories photos of her holding a clear plastic glass with a straw, and it looked like any other reddish-purple fruity smoothie with berry remnants visible on the side.

A post shared by TeenMomTalkNow (@teenmomtalknow) on Aug 4, 2020 at 10:05am PDT

After several teaser photos and videos, asking fans to guess what she was drinking, Kail revealed the ingredients in her smoothie and claimed that she “couldn’t taste the placenta at all.” While there’s been debate in the medical community about mothers ingesting their baby’s placentas, Kailyn went to the Lancaster, PA Placenta Co., where in their Instagram description the company says that by drinking encapsulated placenta, moms can “Recover fast after #birth + Increase #breastmilk. Fight #babyblues + #postpartumdepressionIncrease energy.”

The Lancaster Placenta Co. shared an IG stories video showing the smoothie and wrote, “Can you guess what we made her? Seriously Kail is a rockstar! I can’t wait for her to tell you all about her amazing birth story.” Kail gave birth at home — which is what she was hoping for despite having a high risk pregnancy. All she has revealed to fans so far is that her newborn checked in at 8 lbs., 15 oz. and 22.5 inches long. She revealed that “we are all healthy and so in love. I can check giving birth during a pandemic off my bucket list now.”

The Teen Mom 2 star still hasn’t named her new son, who is her second by ex Chris Lopez. They’re already parents to Lux, almost 3, and she’s also mom to Issac, 10, with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera, and Lincoln, 6, with ex-husband Javi Marroquin. It look Kail some time before she settled on Lux’s name, so she’s taking her time to get to know her newborn before giving him his lifelong moniker.

Speaking of Lux, his little brother arrived less than a week before his own birthday. Also in her IG stories the same day as her placenta smoothie videos, Kailyn shared how she was busy decorating her home for Lux’s Aug. 5 third birthday. She showed a dining room decked out in decorations including orange, blue and green balloons, Captain America mylar balloons and a fun tablecloth. Kailyn wrote, “Something for Lux Russell to wake up to,” over the video. She posted another vid that included an array of Superman, Spiderman, The Incredible Hulk and other superhero t-shirts, clothes and costumes that she’ll be giving him. What an amazing celebration Lux is going to have, with all those gifts, and a brand new baby brother to boot!

Ellen Pompeo admitted why she ‘made choices’ to stay on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ for the long term and explained how the show, which she considers ‘a blessing’, has affected her family life, in a new podcast interview.

Ellen Pompeo, 50, has been playing the role of Meredith Grey on Grey’s Anatomy since its premiere in 2005 and part of the reason she’s decided to stay has to do with her age and financial factors. The actress shared details about how the show has affected her and her family over time in a new interview on the Jemele Hill is Unbothered podcast and admitted that starting the role at the age of 33 is what led her to staying on the same path all these years.

“I got in the game late. I didn’t start Grey’s until I was 33, and then I started having kids at 40,” she said in the interview. “If I started the show when I was younger, [like] 25, I probably would have dipped out when I was 31, 32, [when] my six-year contract was up, but my age had a lot to do with it.”

She further explained that since she was no longer in her 20s, she felt like she’d have to “chase” other roles if she quit the popular ABC show and she wanted to make sure she had financial security and “make money” instead of having to “chase creative roles.” “I knew coming up on 40, it’s like, I don’t want to be out there chasing things, running after things, begging” she said. “I’d rather just see this as the blessing that it is.”

“At my age and where my life is, I just try to lean into it,” she continued. “I’m not trying to run away from anything. It is who I am. I made my choices and I’m cool with it. And I actually have a real passion, which is to sort of start to talk about and break down systemic racism in the healthcare industry. This is something that has plagued us forever. And I think the show has given me a real window into that.”

Ellen who shares three children, including Stella, 10, Sienna, 5, and Eli, 3, with husband Chris Ivery, also touched upon how although she’s extremely grateful for her work on Grey’s Anatomy, her life as a wife and mother will always be the most important thing to her. “For me, personally, a healthy home life was more important than career,” she said. “I didn’t grow up with a particularly happy childhood. So the idea that I have this great husband and these three beautiful children [and] a happy home life was really something I needed to complete, to close the hole in my heart.”

Grey’s Anatomy just finished airing its 16th season in Apr. and a 17th season is set to premiere later this year. You can listen to the full interview with Ellen on the Aug. 3 episode of the Jemele Hill is Unbothered podcast.

Hilary has also been a client at AKT studio in New York City, which combines dance cardio, strength and toning. The owner of the studio, Alissa Tucker, EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife how she keeps Hilary from becoming too muscular — although if that’s your goal, that’s amazing too!

“We utilize low weight high rep exercises and alternate between strength and cardio intervals. Sometimes we use up to 8 lb-10 lb weights, others we use bands, medicine balls, physio balls, a towel or body weight only exercises,” Alissa told us. She added, “Contrary to what some still believe, lifting weights and strength training, even with 8-10 lb weights, will not lead to hypertrophy or make you bulk. In order to achieve muscular hypertrophy you would need to do much more reps using heavier weights.” You can read the rest of the interview, here!

As with any new lady in Rob Kardashian’s life, his sisters will be protective over him and only want  the best for their brother. Now that he’s dating IG model Aileen Gisselle, they’ll be grilling Rob about her.

Considering Rob Kardashian‘s longest relationship in recent years was his disastrous engagement to his family’s enemy Blac Chyna, 32, his famous sisters want their little brother to be careful about who he picks as his next girlfriend. The 33-year-old was busted on an Aug. 3 dinner date with hottie Instagram model Aileen Gisselle, as she shared an Instagram stories video of him gazing across the table at her while dining on desert. While her attention seems to have newly slimmed down Rob on cloud nine as he was smiling from ear to ear, Kourtney, 41, Kim, 39, and Khloe Kardashian, 36, are going to be keeping an eye on this budding romance.

“Rob’s sisters noticed he’s way more happy and they managed to get it out of him that he was talking to someone he likes, but that was all they could get. They’ve been giving him his space, but now that this [pic of him on a date] is out there they’ll be grilling him for more,” a Kardashian family friend tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

Right now Rob seems to be in the flirty, beginning stages of a romance with the bootylicious 29-year-old model. In her story, Gisselle showed the sock designer through Instagram’s romantic video filter, where sexy mood music plays and hearts pour onto the screen. If things go to the next level though, Rob’s sisters will want to give the designer goods-loving model their stamp of approval. Our insider adds that “If it is serious, they will want to meet her right away. They are very protective of him.”

Rob was a swinging single when he and Chyna got together. But their relationship produced daughter Dream Kardashian, 3, and now Rob has to keep his child’s best interests in mind with what women he brings into his romantic life. “Being the only Kardashian brother has its perks. But it can also feel overwhelming any time he starts dating a girl because of course, his sisters would love to know all the details. Especially since Dream is in the picture now, it’s not only about Rob any longer,” a second insider tells us EXCLUSIVELY.

“But they really do let him make his own decisions and they know Rob has learned a lot from his past relationships. They definitely see a newfound confidence in Rob since getting in shape again and they’re actually happy to see him putting himself out there in terms of dating,” our insider continues. “As long as he’s happy, they’re happy and they just want to make sure it’s with the right person.

Katy Perry proved she’s almost ready to give birth when she put her growing baby bump on display in a sleeveless summery purple dress while picking up food during an outing in Santa Barbara.

Katy Perry, 35, is in her last few weeks of pregnancy but she’s not letting it stop her from going out and about! The singer was spotted showing off her almost full term baby bump while wearing a cute sleeveless light purple wrap-around dress and picking up food in Santa Barbara, CA on Aug. 4. She also wore a tan sun hat and multi-tasked by also using FaceTime during a call with a friend as she walked.

The outing comes a week after Katy, who is expecting a daughter with fiance Orlando Bloom, 43, gave fans a hint about her due date in an Instagram post she shared about her upcoming album, Smile. After announcing that her album’s release date has been delayed to Aug. 28, she gave her fans a promise to go live every Sunday until it comes out or until she gives birth, most likely meaning that she’s due this month. “To make this up to you, starting this Sunday (Aug 2) and until the album drops (or until #Babycat 🤰🏼…whichever comes first 🙃😬) join me for #SmileSundays! Every Sunday, time TBA soon, I’m going to go on LIVE for 30 minutes or more and talk all things 🙂SMILE🙂,” she wrote.

Katy’s been pretty open about her pregnancy ever since she first revealed the news and her bump in her music video for “Never Worn White” in Mar. From performing on stage in outfits that hugged her bump perfectly to sharing her different experiences while being pregnant, the mom-to-be seems to enjoy letting her followers have a glimpse into this exciting moment.

Before her latest food outing in a purple dress, Katy was seen rocking a purple bikini while hanging out at a beach with Orlando and friends Karlie Kloss, 28, and Joshua Kushner, 35, on July 26. She looked gorgeous while laying back and relaxing in a lounge chair while wearing the swimsuit along with a tan sun hat. Orlando and Joshua took advantage of the sunny weather as well by jet skiing during the fun day.

As Katy and Orlando continue to embrace these summer days and prepare for the arrival of their baby girl, they’re also planning to walk down the aisle when things calm down. The lovebirds had to postpone their wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Katy admitted that although they’re looking forward to the romantic day, right now, they’re focusing on getting ready to welcome their baby into the world. “Obviously, that will happen in the future, but for now we just want to deliver a healthy child,” she told The Mirror about the wedding. “And that’s what’s coming up right now!”

Rihanna Goes Completely Makeup-Free & Shows Off Her Nightly Skincare Routine — Watch

Rihanna broke down her three-step ‘nighttime skincare routine’ while breaking down her makeup — no wipes needed! The singer used products exclusively from her new Fenty Skin brand.

Rihanna’s nighttime skincare routine is good for both your skin and the Earth. The songstress and entrepreneur revealed this “vegan, gluten-free and very Earth-conscious” three-step regimen, using products from her new Fenty Skin company, in a video for Harper’s Bazaar that was uploaded on Aug. 4!

(Courtesy of YouTube/Harper’s Bazaar)

Rihanna started the video with a full face of makeup. So, the first step was “getting all this makeup off and cleansing my skin,” she announced. This is where her brand’s “two-in-one” makeup remover and cleanser came into play, which RiRi explained removes “dirt and oil” (and makeup, of course). The product, called the “Total Cleans’r Remove-It-All Cleanser,” retails for $25!

Step two introduced one of Rihanna’s “favorite products”: her $28 “Fat Water.” It’s another two-in-one product that acts as both a toner and serum, but it differentiates from your average watery toner. “I called it fat water because unlike most toners, this one just sits in your hand like that,” Rihanna explained, pointing out her product’s thick consistency. This toner/serum “adds moisture to your skin,” all while “refining and reducing pores,” she explained.

Rihanna is known for her flawless complexion! (MEGA)

Rihanna was really “proud” of the third and final step: her $35 moisturizer infused with SPF 30 sunscreen, called the “Hydra Vizor.” It’s “coral reef-friendly,” which was important to the “Work” singer after growing up around coral reefs as a child in Barbados. There’s one other benefit to this dual moisturizer and sunscreen, setting it apart from similar products. “I want women of all skin tones and all colors to use this moisturizer without that gray white cast being left behind,” Rihanna explained. That’s right, the “Hydra Vizor” leaves no sunscreen residue behind!

During the video, Rihanna also revealed “some of the best tips” she has received about skincare: “hydration” and a “healthy diet.” While staying hydrated covered the basics (“drinking a lot of water,” using Fenty Beauty’s hydrating mist,) Rihanna went more into detail about how food and environment impact the skin.

Rihanna has found that people from islands with access to the “best” ingredients, environment, climate and humidity have “beautiful” skin. “I try to implement a lot of those ingredients into my skincare line as well. One of them being very personal to me, which is the Barbados cherry — I call it Beijing cherry,” Rihanna explained. According to Rihanna, the Barbados cherry contains more Vitamin C than an orange!

Rihanna launched her skincare venture on July 31, and talked even more about her eco-friendly products in a behind-the-scenes video (which you can watch here). “Fenty Skin is my vision of the new culture of skincare – I wanted to create amazing products that really work, that are easy to use, and everyone can apply it. I wanted it to feel approachable, easy, and to take the pressure off choosing a routine, so I created one for everyone,” the CEO explained. Our skin feels clearer just from learning about RiRi’s new skincare!

‘The Politician’ star Laura Dreyfuss spoke to HollywoodLife about the importance of voting ahead of the upcoming election.

Deadlines are fast approaching to register to vote and celebs are uniting to urge their followers to show up to the ballot boxes on Nov. 3rd. While she portrays the fierce, young campaign manager McAfee Westbrook in Netflix’s The Politician, Laura Dreyfuss is equally as passionate about exercising the right to vote in real life. She spoke to HollywoodLife.com ahead of the general election to tell fans to get registered!

“Voting is the one opportunity as citizens to create the world we want to see, and it’s the most important right that we have to exercise,” Laura explained. “I think it’s really important to stay informed and look at the world around you and not get complacent… to really examine the change that you want to see and find out what isn’t working and what matters to you as a citizen.”

Laura’s character McAfee is a loyal member of young politician Payton’s (Ben Platt) troupe and resembles the ferocity and ambition of a young Gloria Steinem. In her day-to-day life, Laura is an outspoken activist with a passion for many different causes, from calling for environmental protections to fighting to end systemic racism.

“I think that young people are pushed aside very often in the discussions of what the future looks like, and it’s completely wrong because young people are the future, and this is the world they are inheriting,” she told HL. “They should be very concerned about their future, and understand that no matter what the older generation says, it’s the younger generation who can decide what the future gets to look like — and they do that by voting.”

Laura reminded fans that it’s important to double check you are registered to vote! “It’s really important to make sure that everything is in place and you stay informed and pay attention to what the candidates are saying,” she urged. “There are so many resources, you just have to find them and do the work and get out and vote.”

‘The Umbrella Academy’ Boss On The Major Season 2 Finale Twist, Season 3 Scoop & The Epic BSB Moment

Season 2 of ‘The Umbrella Academy’ was one dramatic and groovy roller coaster. HL spoke with showrunner Steve Blackman about saving the best twist for last, what season 3 would bring, and more.

The Umbrella Academy took it way back in season 2 to 1963. Even though most of the Hargreeves siblings were separated for most of the season, the family dysfunction was still at the center of the series. Each of the siblings went on their own journeys, and they all collided again to help save the world and prevent the world’s destruction.

HollywoodLife talked EXCLUSIVELY with showrunner Steve Blackman about what those final seconds mean for the future of the series. Ben’s alive (sort of) and now the Umbrella Academy has to deal with the Sparrow Academy. He also revealed that Vanya and Allison’s journeys in season 3 will be “painful” to an extent. Plus, want to know how that incredible Backstreet Boys musical moment happened? Steve is answering everything.

Vanya went on quite a journey in season 2. She fell in love with Sissy, a woman from 1963. (Netflix)

Let’s just start with the ending. You introduce the Sparrow Academy at the very end. What can you say about where season 3 would pick up?
Steve Blackman: I can’t say much. We haven’t gotten a season 3 pickup, but I can tell you what season 3 will be because I’ve already planned it out beginning, middle, and end. I can tell you their lives are going to get very complicated. Hargreeves says this is not your home anymore. It belongs to the Sparrow Academy, and we met this Ben of flesh and blood who doesn’t know who these people are. It’s wonderful for the actor, Justin [H. Min], to be able to get to finally act with people other than Robert [Sheehan] and occasionally Ellen [Page]. I do think it’s going to be a lot of fun next season. I don’t get want to give anything away, but I think we have a great setup for things to come.

You don’t show the member of the Sparrow Academy’s faces. How are they different from the Umbrella Academy?
Steve Blackman: I can’t really say much about that. It was intentional that we blocked out their faces and just saw their silhouettes.

Back in 1963, we see Harlan and Sissy going to New Mexico, and he still has some of his powers. He’s twirling this bird. Is it safe to say that Harlan has something to do with the Sparrow Academy? I don’t know my birds very well, but it kind of looks like a sparrow.
Steve Blackman: I will only say this: Vanya was not successful clearly in removing all his abilities. She thinks she has, but she obviously left something behind. It’ll be interesting to see what happens to Harlan down the road.

By the end of season 2, is Vanya in a good place? The first and second season really showed the magnitude of her power and Vanya trying to understand it. Will she finally get a break? 
Steve Blackman: I think she is a good place. In my personal opinion, I think if Sissy and Vanya didn’t have to go their own separate ways, they would have had a wonderful life together. I think Vanya sort of forgetting who she was in the beginning of the season allowed her to let go of all of that baggage of being this wallflower, being judged by the other family members, and thinking she’s an outsider. Without that memory, she could really be more of who she is. Now she’s not afraid of who she is. She had this wonderful love story with this woman and felt protective of her and Harlan. I think Vanya’s in a much better place. Even now that she got her memories back in episode 9, I still think this is a Vanya who is more empowered, more headstrong. I really think she would have had a wonderful life with Sissy going forward, but that wasn’t the future they got to have.

I really enjoyed The Handler once again this season. This woman has defied death before, but is she really gone this time? 
Steve Blackman: We’re not going to see The Handler again. The Handler is dead. She didn’t get the benefit of having a metal plate in her head the second time around, so you won’t be seeing The Handler again.

When you talk about The Handler, you have to talk about Lila. She disappeared with the briefcase. Is it possible that she would turn up again? I feel like her story is not finished.
Steve Blackman: I’d say that it’s very possible. Her and Diego still love each other. I think in the beginning they were both using each other for different reasons. They fell in love, and I think the love is real. Lila’s very lucky. She has a briefcase. She can go anywhere in time and go any place she wants, so we’ll see what happens to her.

With having to say goodbye to Ben again and then seeing a version of him in the flesh at the end of the season, this feels like the beginning of a really big emotional journey for Klaus. This Ben is not the Ben he knows. This is a different person, in a sense. 
Steve Blackman: I think you’re right on with that. I think it’s going to be a very emotional journey for Klaus. Truthfully, deep down, Klaus adored having Ben as his advisor, telling him what to do, what not to do. Even though Klaus seldom listened, he had a permanent friend, someone to always be there with him, and someone who tried not to judge him. Of all the kids, Ben was the kindest kid. Ben’s curse was that he was stuck with Klaus as a translator because Klaus never translated what he wanted to the other people well. That was sort of their curse with each other, but I think they love each other. They were good brothers to each other.

Alison and Luther had their own separate storylines for most of the season. I know that there’s two sides to this where fans ship them and don’t ship them. What does that kiss at the end mean for their relationship? 
Steve Blackman: I remind people that in season 1 that kiss we saw never really happened. That was the day that wasn’t. That was the day that was rewound. The first time we’ve actually seen them really kiss is not a romantic kiss. It’s that kiss when he’s trying to breathe life back into her. I think what Allison had with Ray was a real grown up relationship. I think what Luther and Allison have is just puppy love. I think for Luther it’s much more real than it is for Allison. I think they adore each other. I think Allison would say that Ray was a real love, and Luther was from her childhood. I think Luther’s growing out of that notion thinking that it’s real love. He’s cutting ties. He’s no longer the man-child he was in season 1. He spent a year alone. He’s had some growth this year.

Allison spent a lot of time with Ray, and Vanya spent a lot of time with Sissy. Those were pivotal relationships for both of them. Would season 3 be even more of an emotional journey for them as they deal with leaving those characters behind? 
Steve Blackman: The conceit of the show is 10 days of story time for them, so I think the aftermath would be very painful for them. They’ve lost the loves of their lives. It will be challenging to have to face immediately, but I think they both will be mourning these people that they literally saw hours ago. I think that it’s going to be very painful journey for both of them.

Five worked hard to reunite his siblings. He never stopped hustling in season 2. (Netflix)

I’m guessing it’s safe to assume Reginald will have an even bigger presence in a potential season 3…
Steve Blackman: He’s a delightful actor. He brings so many layers to the character of Reginald Hargreeves. But this Hargreeves we meet in the real timeline should not be alive, and yet here he is. He knows who these people are. The events of 1963 are still playing out. He met them, but I think there’s definitely repercussions to having met them and this is an opportunity for Colm Feore to interact with all of our actors, which is so great.

The show has some incredible musical moments, but I think that Backstreet Boys montage was my favorite. How did the song make it into the show? 
Steve Blackman: I can tell where it came. Just so you know, I do this show differently than most shows do it. I don’t add the music afterwards. I don’t do the edit, and then the music. I think of the songs ahead of time and encourage my writers to put them into the script. I often listen to a song and then figure out how to write a scene based on listening to the song. But I put them all in the scripts, so ahead of time the actors are listening to the music that I’m putting in the script. But that was a particularly tricky scene, and I didn’t know what I wanted. One or two the writers had come up with me to Toronto. It was late at night. We might have had a couple of cocktails. And then I thought of the song. I thought we could try this song against the scene. Everyone was like it can’t possibly work. What I love about the show is we strive to counterpoint songs, find songs that work against something you wouldn’t expect. In season 1, it was “Istanbul” at the end of the first episode. This [“Everybody’] is one of those songs where you instantly recognize the song. It’s a happy song. There are a lot of other things going on visually in front of you, but it fits together. That’s why music is another character of the show. We love music. It’s a big part of our show. I just love that we got the Backstreet Boys in, and it works so well in that sequence.

Have you been writing down songs that you would want to use for season 3 yet?
Steve Blackman: I have a great idea for some scenes in season 3. Not all of it. I have a master list of songs that I’ll be listening to and say this is a Klaus song, this is a Five song, this is a Luther song. Each of them has their own folders. There are definitely I want to fit into season 3.

Ryan Reynolds Calls Plantation Wedding With Blake Lively A ‘Giant’ Mistake: We’re ‘Deeply’ Sorry

Ryan Reynolds Calls Plantation Wedding With Blake Lively A ‘Giant’ Mistake: We’re ‘Deeply’ Sorry

Ryan Reynolds shared in a new interview with Fast Company that the plantation site of his and Blake Lively’s 2012 wedding is ‘impossible to reconcile,’ as he profusely and ‘unreservedly’ apologized for the mistake.

It’s been almost eight years since Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively exchanged their ‘I dos,’ and they are still reckoning with their decision to hold their ceremony and reception at the Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, SC. “It’s something we’ll always be deeply and unreservedly sorry for,” the Deadpool actor, 43, shared in a new interview with Fast Company. “It’s impossible to reconcile.”

The decision Ryan and Blake, 32, made to have their wedding on a former slave plantation didn’t initially cross their minds, nor the response it would invoke from their legions of fans, admirers, and coworkers. “What we saw at the time was a wedding venue on Pinterest. What we saw after was a place built upon devastating tragedy,” Ryan continued.

Actor Ryan Reynolds, left, is joined by his pregnant wife, actress Blake Lively, at the premiere of ‘Pokemon Detective Pikachu’ at Military Island in Times Square on Thursday, May 2, 2019, in New York [AP].“Years ago we got married again at home—but shame works in weird ways,” the actor admitted. Ryan qualified the couple’s decision as “a giant f**king mistake,” saying that the choice, “can either cause you to shut down or it can reframe things and move you into action. It doesn’t mean you won’t f**k up again. But re-patterning and challenging lifelong social conditioning is a job that doesn’t end.”

In the months since the deaths of Black citizens like Ahmaud ArberyBreonna Taylor, and George Floyd at the hands of law enforcement, the site of Ryan and Blake’s wedding and subsequent discussions of it have resurfaced online. The couple, however, wants to be a part of the solution, and they each donated $1 million to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights. In May, they also donated another $200,000 to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, posting a message on their social media accounts that they, “want to educate ourselves about other people’s experiences and talk to our kids about everything, all of it…especially our own complicity.”

As for his work with Maximum Effort Productions, Ryan is putting a focus on inclusion in the workplace. “Representation and diversity need to be completely immersive,” he shared with Fast Company. “It needs to be embedded at the root of storytelling, and that’s in both marketing and Hollywood. When you add perspective and insight that isn’t your own, you grow. And you grow your company, too.” Since their 2012 wedding, Ryan and Blake have welcomed three daughters — James, 5, Inez, 3, and Betty, born in October 2019.

DaniLeigh took to her Triller account to post an eye-catching video of herself dancing and lip syncing to a song while flaunting a bikini at the beach and she gave Bow Wow a shout-out in the caption.

DaniLeigh, 25, is flirting right back at Bow Wow, 33, in a new incredible video she posted one day after her flirted with her and we’re loving her confidence! The model and singer reposted a clip she shared to Triller on Aug. 3 and in it, she can be seen strutting her stuff in a blue patterned bikini while spending time on a beach and lip syncing to a song with some girl friends. Her caption mentioned the rapper, proving she doesn’t mind his eye-catching previous response to her.

“lol should I get bow wow on this 😂🤪👀<” the cheeky caption read. It didn’t take long for fans to notice the post and make their own comments about her and Bow Wow. “Yea do that lol that would be fire 😩🔥👏🏽,” one fan wrote, referring to her mention of Bow Wow. “Don’t be playing with Bow Wow,” another joked while adding a laughing emoji.

DaniLeigh’s video comes after Bow Wow made headlines for responding to a tweet she posted that listed all her good traits. “I’m the best gf. I’m loyal, loving, motivating, a woman of God, a family girl, a freak, a woman of God, I’m funny, I’m jiggy, hardworking, I ain’t boring, bi**chhh I’m perfect,” her tweet read. “I know i said id never get married. But let me tell you… a woman like this!!! BOY ill call my jeweler so FAST,” he replied.

Although Bow Wow’s response was unexpected, it’s not too surprising that he would choose to say such an awesome thing to such an impressive young lady. DaniLeigh has worked hard to become the successful woman she is today and her history is definitely something that shows that. She moved from Miami to Los Angeles at just 16 years old to fulfill her dream of dancing and eventually landed gigs in music videos, commercials, and more. Her breakthrough came when legendary late singer Prince saw one of her dancing videos and asked her to direct his music video for “Breakfast Can Wait” when she was just 18 years old!

She went on to release many tracks as a singer and teamed up with music greats like Chris Brown and Lil Baby and is still taking the world by storm every chance she gets. Bow Wow has yet to respond to her latest video but we’ll be on the lookout to see if he decides to keep the public flirting going!

Kourtney Kardashian has kept her summer bikini queen status even without luxury overseas yachting trips. She rocked a yellow two piece during a weekend staycation in Santa Barbara, CA.

Normally Kourtney Kardashian would be wowing fans with a daily display of bikinis and other swimwear during her summer yachting trips around Italy and Greece. But since COVD-19 has shut down Americans traveling to Europe, she’s getting in plenty of staycations around Southern California where she can flaunt her amazing bikini body. After donning bikinis and sexy one pieces in Palm Springs, Malibu and Newport Beach, she headed north up the coast from L.A. to Santa Barbara, where she wore a tiny yellow two piece.

In a group of Instagram photos Kourtney posted from her getaway which she called “weekenders,” the second snapshot showed the Poosh founder leaning against a white railing next to the beach in the sexy bikini. She flaunted her tight abs and tiny waist and long legs. Behind her, blue and yellow beach umbrellas could be seen at her resort, with the cool Pacific waters in the background. Kourt wore a white long-sleeve cotton unbuttoned blouse from the new sustainable and unisex Australian label I Dream For You over her swimsuit body.

This isn’t the first time that the mother of three has opted for a yellow bikini during a summer 2020 SoCal staycation. On July 17, she shared photos of a weekend getaway to her mom Kris Jenner‘s estate in Palm Springs, CA. Kourt looked so adorable in a yellow two piece with a peasant-style crop top featuring big sleeves, and a bottom that included a super feminine ruffle around the waistband. The sunny color is so perfect for summer and with Kourt’s skin-tone.

In addition to showing off her incredible figure in the photos from Santa Barbara, the reality star also shared at least one of her summer book choices. She’s on a path to letting go of self-limiting beliefs by reading The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by Don Miguel Ruiz. In the same photo next to the book was an orange to snack on and a disposable camera to capture memories with old-school style. The three items lay atop a white and yellow striped beach towel, which perfectly matched Kourtney’s bikini.

While Kourtney likely misses the luxuries of yachting around Italy’s Amalfi Coast in the summertime, her photos showed that Santa Barbara could easily pass for an exclusive little resort on the Mediterranean. The beach with the pretty umbrellas, a photo next to a blue pool surrounded by white loungers with yellow and white striped canopies, and white chairs around a fire pit with gorgeous mountains in the background. What a gorgeous vacation spot, and only 90 minutes up the coast from where Kourtney had been staying at the family’s $125 summer million rental in Malibu.

Aileen, who is 29 years old according to her Famous Birthdays profile, boasts 252,000 followers on Instagram. She also shares something in common with Rob: being a proud parent! Aileen has a young daughter named Emoniee Gisselle. Seeing Rob seated at a dinner table with a pretty lady shouldn’t come as a surprise, though, based on what we reported in July.

“Rob is keeping it very low key but apparently he’s dating someone that he really likes,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife, which we shared on July 25. The insider continued, “He knows as soon as people find out, it will get turned into a huge deal and all this pressure will be added that he doesn’t want, so he’s being very secretive right now. His family is respecting his privacy, as long as he’s happy, they’re happy.”

We’ve also reported that Rob has been more open to love, an attitude reflective of his new and healthier lifestyle. “Rob is hoping his recent weight loss and being in such good spirits will be a good thing for his dating life. He wants to turn something into a meaningful relationship with someone soon,” another source, who is close to the Kardashian family, EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife (which we shared on July 8). At the time, this source also told us that Rob was a “very eligible bachelor” and that he “has a lot of women interested in him.” So, his relationship with Aileen — whatever it may be — appears to be very fresh!

Rob’s last serious relationship in the public eye was with his ex-fiancée Blac Chyna, 32. They share a three-year-old daughter together, Dream Kardashian, but the parents’ relationship ended in disaster in Dec. 2016 — Rob accused Chyna of leaving his home and taking their daughter with her. They broke off for good after a brief reunion in Jan. 2017.
