The love is still strong between Josh Duhamel and Audra Mari. The couple – along with Josh’s distinguished beard – were spotted PDA’ing it up during a date night in Malibu.

It’s been about eighteen months since Josh Duhamel and Audra Mari started up their relationship, and from the looks of things, the romance is still burning bright between these two. It also appears that Josh, 48, is leaning into his new role as a “Silver Fox.” The Las Vegas alum showed off a salt-and-pepper beard while he and Audra, 27, were spotted leaving Nobu in Malibu on Saturday (May. 01.) Josh kept things casual but chic with a nice pair of jeans, a half-tucked button-up, and a dark jacket. It was a good look, one that was complemented by the gray hair on his temples.

Audra, on the other hand, dressed up a bit, donning a blue dress that she accessorized with a leather jacket. Her long, dark hair draped her shoulders and flowed freely in the Saturday night air. She carried a leather handbag in one hand while holding Josh’s in the other. The couple also appeared to have a few leftovers, which they managed to carry while holding each other’s hand. That takes some skill.

The love between Josh and Audra began in October 2019, when the Jupiter’s Legacy star was spotted kissing the beauty queen outside of Starbucks. Audra won Miss World America (at the age of 22) in 2016. She placed 11th at Mss World, the international pageant, later that year. The North Dakota native also signed with Los Angeles’ Vision LA agency, lending her beauty as a model for campaigns with Ocean Drive and H&M.

Shortly after they were seen kissing, Josh and Audra seemingly confirmed their relationship by attending a holiday party. This sighting came on the heels of Josh finalizing his divorce from Fergie. Josh and the 44-year-old, former Black Eyes Peas singer filed for divorce in 2019, two years after they separated (and subsequently, ended their 13-year relationship.) Despite the split, the couple has remained amicable, especially when it comes to raising their son, Axl Duhamel, 7.

Josh recently spoke out about his upcoming role in Shotgun Wedding and what it was like to film opposite Jennifer Lopez. “It was one of the most fun experiences I’ve had shooting, or working in this business,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “First of all, we’re in the Dominican Republic, which is absolutely beautiful. Jen was a dream to work with, she’s an absolute pro and totally engaged and loved the project.” Josh’s choice of words is interesting since JLo’s engagement with Alex Rodriguez fell apart while filming the movie. However, similarly to how Josh and Fergie were post-breakup, J.Lo and A-Rod seemed amicable when announcing their split.

Bill and Melinda Gates announced in a statement that they are ending their marriage after 27 years together, declaring they ‘don’t believe’ they should be a couple.

After nearly three decades of marriage, Bill Gates and wife Melinda Gates are calling it quits. The couple and business dynamites, who have three children together, announced their surprising split in a joint statement posted to Twitter on May 3. Bill and Melinda came to the conclusion that they should divorce “after a great deal of thought,” according to their statement.

— Bill Gates (@BillGates) May 3, 2021

“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage. Over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all to lead healthy, productive lives,” the statement, posted to the Microsoft founder’s Twitter reads. “We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the [Gates] foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in the next phase of our lives.

Bill, 65, and Melinda, 56, ended the message by asking for privacy “as we begin to navigate this new life.” The billionaire philanthropists met at Microsoft, the company Bill co-founded, where Melinda worked as a marketing manager in 1987. They married on the Hawaiian island of Lanai in September 1994, after weighing the pros and cons of marriage on a whiteboard.

“You know, we cared a lot for each other and there were only two possibilities: either, we were going to break up or we were going to get married,” Bill said in the 2019 Netflix docuseries Inside Bill’s Brain. “I took the idea of marriage very seriously.” He gushed over Melinda in the series, calling her “a truly equal partner.”

They head the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, launched in 2000, which focuses on enhancing healthcare, reducing extreme poverty, and expanding access to education and technology throughout the United States.  As of 2018, Bill and Melinda had donated $36 billion of their own money to the foundation.

The financial details of their split are not clear. Bill, the co-founder and former CEO of Microsoft owns about 1% of the company’s shares. Together, Bill and Melinda are worth about $26 million, according to CNBC. They are part of the Giving Pledge, a movement of wealthy philanthropists who vow to give away half of their money. MacKenzie Scott joined after her pricey divorce from Amazon’s Jeff Bezos.

Jamie Miller’s ‘Here’s Your Perfect’ Video Is About Turning Heartbreak Into ‘Something Beautiful’

Out of a heart-wrenching experience, comes art – and a revelation. Rising star Jamie Miller finds his ‘perfect’ ending – or close enough – and shares why this new song is so ‘personal.’

We find Jamie Miller in a pensive mood at the start of “Here’s Your Perfect,” the new song/video from this up-and-coming singer-songwriter. “I remember the day / even wrote down the date / that I fell for you,” he sings, but it’s clear that this is not a happy tale he’s telling. As he wanders through the memories, we watch as the relationship crumbles under infidelity. Rather than sink into despair and unfairly blame himself, he realizes “my best was just fine.”

It’s a spark of maturing from this young man, and the song soars upon this message of self-respect. “You won’t see me break / and call you up in three days / or send you a bouquet / saying ‘it’s a mistake,’” he sings before the chorus. The soulful song recognizes that sometimes, a relationship is only ‘perfect’ when you find that ‘perfect’ way to let someone go.

“This is the first song I wrote in LA about something that was so personal to me,” he shares with HollywoodLife. “I would always hear songs on the radio that gave me a feeling of ‘wow I wish I wrote that’ – but ‘Here’s Your Perfect’ is mine, and I feel like even if it wasn’t, I would still wish I wrote it, so that’s a cool feeling.”

“The inspiration for the video came from a real experience, unfortunately!” he adds. Sadly, the visual – with its infidelity and heartbreak – are accurate. But, channeling this pain, Jamie entered a studio, and created an anthem to help those who may be going through a similar experience. “I think that’s the beauty of art though, you can go through stuff and turn it into something beautiful,” he adds. Towards the end of the video, Jamie also shares something deeply personal: a recent revelation about his own sexuality.

(Jessica Spohr)

Jamie says he “found myself through the pandemic,” specifically how he realized that “gender doesn’t determine who I can fall in love with,” he says in a statement accompanying “Here’s Your Perfect.” This understanding was, as he put it, “most challenging but amazing journeys I’ve worked through,” but with such knowledge, only light and love will follow.

Many have followed Jamie since he first burst out on the scene in the late 2010s. Since relocating to Los Angles, his star continues to shine. 2020 saw Jamie release a handful of songs, including “City That Never Sleeps” (which you can see at the start of the “Here’s Your Perfect” video), as well as “Onto Something” and a cover of “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” The start of 2021 saw “Hold You ‘Till We’re Old,” but thankfully, fans won’t have to wait that long for the next bit of audio dynamite from this dynamic talent.

Here’s Your Perfect” is out now.

Cynthia Bailey will be celebrating this Mother’s Day holiday with a fun new cocktail. Plus, she’s spilling tea on ‘RHOA’!

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey started working with Seagram’s Escapes in 2018 and launched her own signature flavor in 2019 – Peach Bellini – which has become a top favorite with Seagram’s Escapes Drinkers. And now, Cynthia is expanding her partnership with Seagram’s by introducing a fun new cocktail for this Mother’s Day holiday — The Momosa.

The recipe is rather simple too — just combine 2/3 of your favorite Seagram’s Escapes flavor plus 1/3 sparkling wine or champagne. Then, garnish it with berries or the fruit of your choice! It’s really that simple.

“Being a mother is my number one job. That is my number one priority and, and I respect the things that moms go through, and I feel like we always kind of put ourselves last. So, Mother’s Day is a really important day for us to do something for us. So with that said, we came up with the ‘Momosa’,” Cynthia told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY while promoting her new cocktail with Seagram’s.

Cynthia told us that she’s super excited for Mother’s Day, and she plans on enjoying quite a few Momosas. She also said, “I plan on being with my husband at Lake Bailey. I’m the kind of mom, I just like to be treated well on Mother’s Day. I’m not really big on flowers and stuff like that. It’s nice, but I want a deep tissue massage. And not the one hour kind — mama needs a long massage, okay? Throw in a facial and some dinner, and a nice glass of champagne and I’m good to go.” Sounds pretty ideal — and well deserves. Especially because Cynthia recently wrapped production on a pretty dramatic season of RHOA.

While much has already been revealed during the show’s reunion special, including a secret hookup between Porsha Williams and LaToya Ali, Cynthia said fans may not get all the answers they’ve been looking for. “I don’t know if you guys are going to get all the answers that you need or you expect,” she revealed, while also sharing her hopes for Season 14.

When asked who she’d like to see return to the show, she joked, “Well, first of all, since you know, there’s never a guarantee that any of us are coming back [for another season] — I would like for myself to have the option [to come back] before I try to give other people a job.” Then — after we chuckled over her answer — she added, “But going forward from that, I would say I do love the cast that we had this season. But from what I hear from the fans, a lot of people definitely miss Nene [Leakes], Phaedra [Parks], and Kim Zolciak.” We have no idea what the future of RHOA holds, but we certainly hope it includes Cynthia Bailey.

Want more from Cynthia? The third and final part of the RHOA reunion airs Sunday, May 9, at 8pm on Bravo. And yes, that also happens to be Mother’s Day. So do yourself a favor and enjoy this new cocktail while you’re watching the ladies hash things out on TV.

Melinda Gates and her husband Bill Gates announced their decision to end their marriage via social media on May 3. Here are five things you should know about her and their time together as a couple.

Melinda Gates, 56, and her husband Bill Gates, 65, shocked many of their social media followers on May 3 when they released a statement that announced the end of their 27-year marriage. The philanthropist and Microsoft founder, who were married in 1994, both took to Twitter and Instagram to share the news and revealed that a “great deal of thought” went into their final decision.

“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” the statement read. “Over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives. We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives. We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this new life.”

Here are five things you should know about Melinda and her background with Bill.

When did she and Bill first meet?

Melinda met Bill in 1987. The pair dated four seven years before tying the knot in beautiful Lanai, HI in 1994. They share three children, two daughters and a son — Jennifer, 25, Phoebe, 18, and Rory Gates, 21.

Together she and Bill created the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Six years after their wedding, Bill and Melinda founded the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in 2000. The organization has donated billions of dollars to health research during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. In February, the foundation donated $100 million to health care research as the outbreak in the United States grew more serious. In April 2020, they donated another $150 million in testing aid, treatment, and helping impoverished countries create a plan of sustainability during the uncertain time. As of the publishing of this article, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the second-largest donor to the World Health Organization.

She gave Donald Trump’s administration a ‘D-‘ for leadership during the coronavirus.

Melinda was not satisfied with how President Donald Trump‘s administration treated the coronavirus pandemic. On Thursday, May 7, 2020, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation gave the Trump administration a D- for their leadership during the outbreak. “We need leadership at the national level. We lost two months almost now in terms of our national response,” Bill shared with Politico last year.

Melinda also insisted that one of the biggest issues facing America during the pandemic was the lack of testing. “You know, if we were doing the things that the exemplar countries are doing, like Germany, we would be testing. We would be testing, first, health care workers and then the most vulnerable, and you’d be doing contact tracing,” she said. “And we would be able to start thinking about slowly, slowly reopening places in society in safe and healthy ways, but we have a lack of a coordinated effort.”

As a major donor to the World Health Organization, Melinda quickly became one of strongest voices from the Trump administration opposition. Her foundation has donated millions of dollars to combat the pandemic, making her and her soon-to-be ex-husband, two of the biggest financial donors in the fight against COVID-19.

Melinda has received high honors for her philanthropic work.

In 2013, Melinda Gates was appointed an honorary Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire for her philanthropy and work on the international stage. In 2016, President Barack Obama also awarded her and her husband the Presidential Medal of Freedom for their philanthropic efforts.

She’s an author.

In 2019, Melinda published her first book The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World. The book is a New York Times bestseller. Her work focused on a span of issues from child marriage, to the lack of access to contraceptives, and inequity in the work place.

Fours sons may not be enough for ‘Teen Mom 2’ star Kailyn Lowry. In case she wants more kids in the future, she’s undergoing egg retrieval.

While Kailyn Lowry has her hands full with four growing boys, the 29-year-old isn’t ruling out adding to her brood in the future. “I don’t have any intentions any time soon to have more children, but I’m going through IVF and egg retrievals so that I can potentially have the chance in the future, if that’s what I want,” Kailyn told Us Weekly while promoting season 11 of Teen Mom 2, which debuts tonight, Tuesday May 4 on MTV.

Kail’s decision comes two months after her polycystic ovary syndrome diagnosis.“ You know, my kids are getting older,” the MTV star continued. Kailyn is mom to four sons: Isaac, 11, by ex Jo Rivera, 7-year-old Lincoln by ex-husband Javi Marroquin, and two young boys with ex-boyfriend Chris Lopez, sons Lux, 3, and Creed, 9 months.

The Coffee Convos podcast cohost is enjoying the fact that as her kids get older, she’s getting more time for herself. Kailyn told the publication she’s enjoying her “independence and kind of getting [my] time back,” adding, “So, definitely no kids. No more kids [are] in my near future.” But as for further down the road, the MTV stars says “Maybe. Maybe not. We’ll see,” when it comes one day becoming a mother of five.

Kailyn made the decision to undergo egg retrieval after being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome in March 2021. She described during a Coffee Convos podcast at the time that, “I was having such heavy periods. I was bleeding through three and four changes of clothes per day during my period…and I would bleed through my mattress. I would bleed through everything.” But after her diagnosis, Kail took a positive attitude, saying, “It’s just kind of all new and overwhelming. But we’re gonna figure out a way to manage it, and we’ll work it out. It’ll be fine.”

“I’m not gonna say that I’m gonna have another child because I truly don’t know,” Lowry said at the time. “It’s not on my radar anytime soon. And I always say this, every time I’m trying to get my life on track and I end up pregnant again. I know this. This time I might be done. Like, this time I might for real be done. I’ve got four f**king kids  I didn’t even want kids, ever”

Kailyn admitted that with her pregnancies she was “never trying for a girl” and that she likely won’t be in the future. “I’m very well maybe done. With my luck it would be another boy.  I’m not really down to have a starting five basketball team. I’m kind of over that.”

Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler share two children together and co-parent as his relationship with Kourtney Kardashian has ‘a lot of passion and chemistry.’

Shanna Moakler, 46, made headlines when seemingly shading her ex Travis Barker, 45, and his girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian, 42, in an Instagram comment a few days ago, and now we’re finding out how it’s affected her relationship status with the Blink 182 drummer. She and Travis share two children, including son Landon, 17, and daughter Alabama, 15, together and they’ve been steady with their co-parenting.

“Some days, Travis and Shanna get along and some [they] don’t, but overall, they have a pretty decent and respectful relationship most of the time,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “He will always respect her as the mother of his children and is not one to go out of his way to hurt someone or clap back on social media, so don’t expect him to.”

Shanna’s supposed shady comment was posted on a pic she posted of her boyfriend Matthew Rondeau kissing her hand. “Unlike some people my relationship status isn’t based on social media posting… I’m happy on life not on IG,” she wrote. Travis and Kourtney are known for posting a lot flirty and PDA-filled pics on social media since going public with their romance in Feb., so many thought the comment was directed at them.

Shanna also made headlines before that when she liked a comment that claimed Travis “downgraded” by dating Kourtney after her. “Travis & Kourtney posting so much has nothing to do with Shanna,” the source continued. “The photos are real and they are very much in love. They have a lot of passion and chemistry between them.”

As far as whether or not Travis plans on responding to Shanna with his own shady comment, our insider says he’s not interested in stirring up drama. “Travis tries to be respectful and kind towards all his exes,” the insider explained. “He’s the nicest guy in the world.”
Travis and Kourtney were friends for many years and faced romance rumors a number of times before finally deciding to take their friendship to the next level. Although he “respects” Shanna, who he was married to from 2004 until 2008, and everything they’ve been through, he’s only romantically interested in the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star. “He’s not thinking about anyone but Kourtney in that way,” the source added. “He and Shanna have had no romantic feelings towards one another for years.”

‘The Bachelorette’ co-host has been open about her battle with anxiety and she’s EXCLUSIVELY sharing how her BF Jason Tartick helps her struggles.

Katilyn Bristowe, 35, has been open about her battle with anxiety attacks and her mental health struggles. It’s no surprise she’s thankful to have her boyfriend and fellow Bachelor Nation alum Jason Tartick, 32, to help her through the tough times. “It’s so interesting because Jason is in tune with himself,” the DWTS mirrorball champ told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY during an episode of TVTalk on Instagram Live on April 30. “And he really wants to help.”

After striking out twice trying to find her husband through The Bachelor franchise, Kaitlyn finally found her knight in shining armor off screen. Jason, who appeared on 31-year-old Becca Kurfin‘s season, was a guest on Kaitlyn’s Off the Vine podcast in 2018. Kaitlyn had just broken up with her choice on her season of the show, Shawn Booth, 33, and Jason had just been announced runner-up and the timing was right. The two now reside in Nashville together and are going strong in their new home with several dogs to keep them company.

The couple understand one another so well that Jason knows just what to do when Kaitlyn’s anxiety sets in. “We’ve learned over the years that he’s an empath so when I have anxiety, it almost gives him anxiety,” Kaitlyn explained. “So he really has to step back and be there for me rather than taking it on from me because I’m an empath myself so I really understand that struggle. He’s so good because I’m able to communicate before it happens. Sometimes I just have got to put my feet up. I like to have something cold when I have those really bad anxiety attacks because sometimes for me it’s triggering when people are like, ‘Are you OK? What can I do?’ He knows now, so he just supports me in any way. We have really good communication in our relationship and I think he just knows what I need.”

The reality star has found several different ways to figure out her triggers and cope over the years, including therapy and medication, which she’s been open about her unfortunate addiction to. “I think it’s important to feel your feelings even if that is depression and anxiety,” Kaitlyn added. “I think triggers for me are based around fears, but mostly, for me unfortunately, it’s really hormonal for me so usually around that time of month — it’s almost clockwork for me at this point that I know what’s going to happen. Sometimes I will manage it by going and doing a workout and getting my endorphins and sometimes I’ll manage it by having a glass of wine and sometimes I’ll manage it by laying in bed and not feeling guilty about it and that’s where it really helps to listen to your body and be in tune with your body and not pressuring yourself or having any shame around it.”

Another important person in her life who has helped her through her darkest of days is good friend and celebrity health coach, Erin Treloar, and The Raw Beauty Company. Kaitlyn is so passionate about talking about mental health and uplifting women that she’s teaming up with Erin for the 12 week Raw Beauty Reset. “I remember wanting to work with Raw Beauty before I went on The Bachelor and when I came off The Bachelorette, I was so excited to have a platform, to share a space with people that you could feel empowered,” Kaitlyn explained. “There’s body positivity. They’re celebrating women of all different shapes, color and sizes. I’ve believed what Erin has been doing for so many years and I was finally able to have this platform to share it. Were going to do zooms, were going to dance, we’re going to talk about important things, we’re going to share our stories. I know from my experience, working with her is really, really life changing.”

‘Mrs. Maisel’ fans rejoice! Actress Rachel Brosnahan has been spotted filming scenes for the latest season of the popular Amazon Prime show.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is set to return for a highly-anticipated fourth season, and Rachel Brosnahan has been spotted showing off some of her character’s signature style. The 30-year-old actress was spotted on set in New York City dressed as her character Midge Maisel. New photos show Rachel filming a nighttime scene on May 1, which involved her hailing a taxi from a Manhattan sidewalk.

Her co-star Alex Borstein, 50, was also seen on set, alongside a glowing Rachel. She wore a bright blue dress which featured a flowing skirt design that fell down to her knees, and a belt at her waist. The garment also had buttons along her midsection and a triangle cutout above her chest. Her dark tresses where styled in tight curls, reminiscent of the 1950s when the show was set. Finally, she completed the outfit with a pink, pillbox hat, a maroon velvet handbag, and blue heels.

Although New York City is the backdrop of the show, she was seen filming in front of a green screen, in order for a more accurate cityscape to be placed behind her in post-production. Like many Hollywood films and TV shows, filming was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, season 4 of the hit Amazon Prime show finally got underway in January 2021. The show had Amazon’s “most-watched opening weekend ever” with the launch of season 3 in Dec. 2019, so it seems a lot of people are waiting on the edge of their seats for the new season.

“We were supposed to go back in June, and obviously it wasn’t safe to do that then,” star Rachel Brosnahan said on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show in Dec. 2020. “I just actually came from a wig and shoe and hat fitting. Literally just 20 minutes ago, walked in the door.” She added, “So, we are in the process of getting ready to go back hopefully safely in January, and are really, really excited. The hats are insane. The hats are out of control. We may have lost our minds with the hats this season.”

Kelly Ripa, 50, and Mark Consuelos, 50, celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary on May 1 and it turned out to be quite the loving event for both of them! The talk show host took to her Instagram story to share snapshots of what appeared to be a book the actor gifted her in honor of the many memorable moments they’ve had together over the years and it was the sweetest. “Best gift ever..” and “This beautiful life…” she wrote in captions over the epic photos that were on the pages.

The pics showcased included one of the happy couple on the day they were married in Las Vegas, NV back in 1996. They were smiling and gazing into each other’s eyes as they stood with their arms around each other. Other photos showed their three children, Michael, 23, Lola, 19, and Joaquin, 18, as newborns and one showed a typed out message from Mark that was at the beginning of the book.

“Happy 2th Anniversary,” it started. “If I were to write a book of our story, these are the 25 places that could have their own chapter. All of these places mean so much to me – and hopefully to you too. Love, Mark.”

Kelly and Mark’s 25th anniversary proves their commitment to each other is stronger than ever and has been since they started to date back in the 1990s after meeting on the soap opera All My Children. They brought the romance of their characters, Hayley and Mateo, to real life when they got hitched and started their own family. They have seemed inseparable and often comment on their love for one another in interviews or on social media.

“What’s funny is I think of us as such a progressive couple. I always think of us as politically progressive…we’re progressive people,” Kelly recently said about their marriage on the Double Date podcast. “And yet, when it comes to our own family and our marriage and our roles, I think of us as very traditional and almost old-fashioned in our roles.”

Porsha revealed new details about Cynthia’s bachelorette party during the May 2 episode of ‘RHOA’.

The events of Cynthia Bailey‘s bachelorette party were — and still are — a little hazy, but LaToya Ali and Porsha Williams revealed they may have gotten very close on the coffee table during the second part of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion on May 2.

It was mentioned after Andy Cohen brought up the party and said, “There was a lot of talk about the coffee table action.” After everyone started giggling, he asked, “Does anyone care to share what happened on the coffee table?”

“That’s one of the things that were blurry,” Porsha started explaining. She then revealed, “It came back to me that Toya was doing a thing on me, you know, or whatever…”

“Or whatever?” Andy asked, before LaToya jumped in and further asked, “What’s ‘a thing on me’?”

“Your face was here,” Porsha said as she pointed to her crotch.

“My face was there?” LaToya asked, to which Porsha said, “Yes.” LaToya then asked, “Did you like it?” and Porsha again said, “Yeah!”

“But I didn’t really remember that,” Porsha explained to Andy. She claims she was told by someone that that’s what happened. She also said, “I still had on my costume, so it’s not like she was [doing anything].” And by that she meant oral sex.

But Andy reminded Porsha that her costume was basically “a piece of dental floss,” so either way, if what they’re saying is true, then LaToya’s face was definitely close to Porsha’s nearly naked crotch area. LaToya agreed, saying, “I could have pulled them panties to the side.”  Porsha got excited by the thought of that, but it seemed evident that no one truly remembered all the details of what went down on the coffee table.

In other reunion news — Kandi Burruss and Porsha opened up about where their friendship stands today. After four years of ups and downs, they revealed that they’re following each other on social media. And when Andy asked Kandi what finally allowed her to “bury the hatchet with Porsha,” she said, “I guess like, this year, it just seemed like, you know, it was headed in a much better direction. We were having a lot more fun together, around each other. And then when we were at Cynthia’s event and she was showing support to DonJuan as well, I was like, ‘Okay, now this is really a different situation.’”

Porsha added, “Even when Kandi and I have issues outside of the group, we’ll talk about it over text and deal with it. And we deal with it and we leave it there.”

Want more drama? The third and final part of the RHOA reunion airs next Sunday, May 9, at 8pm on Bravo.

The top 10 performed Disney classics on ‘American Idol’s Disney Night on May 2. When the top 7 were announced, that meant 3 contestants were sent home in heartbreaking eliminations.

It’s the most magical night of American Idol! It’s Disney Night! Right off the bat, Ryan Seacrest reveals the Comeback winner. Season 18 runner-up Arthur Gunn is now a part of the season 19 top 10 after a nationwide vote. Arthur says it “feels marvelous” to be back.

The top 9 took a trip to Disney World in Florida where they collaborated with celebrity mentor John Stamos. Caleb Kennedy is the first contestant to perform. He rocked out to “Real Gone” from Cars. Katy Perry raves that his “energy is infectious” and had the perfect song choice. Lionel Richie adds that it was a “radiating performance” for the 16-year-old.

Willie Spence sings a powerful rendition of “Circle of Life” from The Lion King. The end of his performance is stunning. Luke tells Willie that he has the “magic” in him, and Lionel Richie says Willie is a “true stylist as an artist.” He also notes that Willie’s “delivery is just so incredible.” Katy calls him a “bonafide idol.”

Deshawn Goncalves switches things up with his performance of “When You Wish Upon A Star” from Pinocchio. He rearranges the song and creates a jazz version. Lionel raves that Deshawn totally “nailed” his performance. Katy says this performance showed “real, true growth” in Deshawn.

Casey Bishop wows with her stunning rendition of “When She Loved Me” from Toy Story 2. This girl is just 16, but she’s got one powerhouse voice. Katy tells Casey that her “vocals will take you to infinity and beyond.” Luke goes so far as to say Casey is a “superstar in the making.”

Similar to Deshawn, Chayce Beckham decides to switch the arrangement of “Baby Mine” from Dumbo. His alt-rock version is a standout performance. Lionel advises Chayce to not get so caught up in the fact that he’s on American Idol. “Enjoy this, this is your moment,” Lionel says. Katy commends Chayce for changing up the arrangement and making “Baby Mine” a “cool song.”

Alyssa Wray embraces her inner Disney princess with her beautiful version of “A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes” from Cinderella. She really saves her big vocals for the final part of the song. Lionel calls the performance “amazing,” and Katy adds that Alyssa was “elegant and elevated.”

Arthur returns to the Idol stage to sing his own version of “Remember Me” from Coco. He feels right at home on stage. “That was one of your best performances I’ve ever seen,” Luke says. He adds that Arthur was “so authentic” in his style and vocal tones.

Cassandra Coleman hits the stage next and performs “Go The Distance” from Hercules. Luke tells Cassandra that this was the “most comfortable” he’s seen her in the moment. Lionel keeps it short and simple, calling it an “amazing, solid performance.”

Hunter Metts is back after tearing up on stage two weeks ago after forgetting the lyrics during his performance. This week, he’s singing his mom’s favorite song, which is “You’ll Be In My Heart” from Tarzan. It’s a super sweet and slow performance. Katy has nothing but praise for Hunter. “You really swung that one,” Katy says, before adding that he “sounded great.” She admits she loved the “big leap” he took with the performance at the end.

Grace Kinstler on ‘American Idol.’ (ABC)

Grace Kinstler is ending the night with “Into the Unknown” from Frozen 2. It’s a total star-making performance. Katy is nearly speechless! Luke says, “You had the eye of the tiger… you went beyond all that.”

Now it’s time for eliminations. This is going to be gut-wrenching. Ryan reveals the top 7 (in no particular order): Chayce, Casey, Willie, Hunter, Caleb, Grace, and Arthur. That means Deshawn, Alyssa, and Cassandra are going home this week.
