Dr. Viviana Coles has her work cut out for her in this EXCLUSIVE preview of ‘Married At First Sight: Unmatchables.’ Brandon has a stranger alter-ego named Legend.

Dr. Viviana Coles stops by Brandon’s place to get the low-down on his single status in this EXCLUSIVE preview of the May 12 episode of Married At First Sight: Unmatchables. Right away, Dr. Viviana realizes she’s not just working with Brandon. She’s working with his alter-ego Legend, too.

“Legend’s not a simple guy. Brandon’s a simple guy,” Brandon says, referring to himself in the third person. “Legend jumps from table to table, Brandon wears flip-flops. Legend does have some bad habits. Brandon wears shorts.”

Dr. Viviana asks Brandon if he finds it odd that he refers to himself in the third person. “No. That’s just how it is. That’s how I build myself to become,” Brandon says. He reveals that he’s a club promoter and always has to be the “life of the party.”

“But Legend meets those women,” Brandon adds. “Brandon really doesn’t meet the women because Brandon doesn’t have the time. Brandon cuts his phone off.” Dr. Viviana acknowledges that there are “two different versions” of Brandon to deal with.

When it comes to relationships, Brandon only wants “one” woman. However, he says that Legend “entertains” multiple women. Brandon wants a “small-town girl” to come home to at the end of the day. Brandon claims that Legend is “getting in the way” of him finding a woman.

The Married At First Sight spinoff works to match 16 applicants from previous seasons by helping them discover another chance at love with guidance and advice from Married at First Sight experts Pastor Calvin Roberson and Dr. Viviana. Each episode will follow as the participants are guided through their physical and personal transformations, resulting in them being set up on a date to see if love is in the air and if they can ultimately get out of their own way on their romantic journeys. Married At First Sight: Unmatchables airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on Lifetime.

Ally Brooke opened up about her time in Fifth Harmony on her new podcast ‘The Ally Brooke Show,’ revealing she ‘didn’t love’ being in the famous girl group due to alleged ‘toxicity’ and more.

Roughly three years after Fifth Harmony went on an indefinite hiatus, original member Ally Brooke is opening up about her time in the girl group. In the inaugural episode of the 27-year-old singer’s podcast, The Ally Brooke Show, the eponymous host shared details about her time in the sensational pop group. “It was a whirlwind,” Ally shared of the group coming together in 2012 on The X Factor and skyrocketing to stardom.

“I’m going to say how proud I am of Fifth Harmony, of what we did, of what we did for music, what we did for female empowerment, what we did for girl groups,” she reflected. Unfortunately, Ally’s appreciation for what the group accomplished was overshadowed by her difficult experience. “But I hate saying this: My time in Fifth Harmony, I didn’t enjoy it. I didn’t love it,” she confessed.

Fifth Harmony members Camila Cabello, Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane Hansen, Lauren Jauregui backstage at KIIS-FM Jingle Ball in Los Angeles on December 2, 2016 [Shutterstock].“It was hard because there was so much going on,” Ally continued to explain. “So much behind the scenes, so much toxicity, so much abuse, so much [abuse] of power, so much mental abuse, verbal abuse, and it’s just horrible and to me, it’s a shame because we were so big. I should have enjoyed myself more.” The original group consisted of Camila Cabello, Ally, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane Hansen, and Lauren Jauregui.

HollywoodLife has reached out to the former group’s previous label for comment. Ally went on to open up about how the situation became so difficult to live with, she sought out help from resources within the label. But Ally’s requests were allegedly rebuffed and Ally explained that the women were often made to feel “inferior” and “uncomfortable” during that time.

Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter and admitted how ’embarrassed’ she was by her past behavior, and shared her public apology to Courtney Stodden for bullying them on social media in 2011.

UPDATE (5/12/2021, 4:40 PM ET): Courtney Stodden responded to Chrissy Teigen’s Twitter apology, where the model and mom shared her regret for publicly bullying Courtney when they were just 16 years old. “I accept her apology and forgive her. But, the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private. In fact, she blocked me on Twitter,” Courtney told TMZ. “All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her ‘wokeness’ is a broken record,” they added.

ORIGINAL: Chrissy Teigen is trying to make amends. The model and TV personality, 35, took to Twitter on May 12 and shared a lengthy apology to Courtney Stodden for bullying them on the social media platform back in 2011. “Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bullsh*t in front of the entire world,” Chrissy began her statement.

Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bullshit in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that…

“I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that…is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel,” Chrissy continued. Although the mother-of-two didn’t share what it was she said about the singer and model, 26, nearly 10 years ago, Chrissy tried to explain her remorse.

is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel. I have worked so hard to give you guys joy and be beloved and the feeling of letting you down is nearly unbearable, truly. These were not my only mistakes and surely won’t be my last as hard as I try but god I will try!!

— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 12, 2021

“I have worked so hard to give you guys joy and be beloved and the feeling of letting you down is nearly unbearable, truly. These were not my only mistakes and surely won’t be my last as hard as I try but god I will try!!” Chrissy went on to explain that she “tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fueled all this, I want to also publicly apologize. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am.”

I have tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fueled all this, I want to also publicly apologize. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am.

— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 12, 2021

Chrissy’s apology was in reference to tweets she wrote about a then-16-year-old Courtney back in 2011, many of which were of sensitive nature and implied drug use and far more harmful ideation, per Courtney’s profile with The Daily Beast. Chrissy previously left Twitter on March 24, but returned to the platform after only three weeks. She has been called out for her tweets in the past. But now, she’s trying to account for her actions.

And I am so sorry I let you guys down. I will forever work on being better than I was 10 years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago.

— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 12, 2021

Courtney Stodden, meanwhile, has entered a completely new, exciting chapter of their life. On April 14, Courtney made the brave decision to disclose that they identify as non-binary, using they/them/their pronouns. The singer also spoke EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife about reconciling with their mother after more than five years.

As for Chrissy’s apology, there’s no sign yet what Courtney’s response to the Cravings author’s apology will be. “And I am so sorry I let you guys down,” Chrissy concluded her thread, addressing her more than 13 million Twitter followers. “I will forever work on being better than I was 10 years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago.”

‘Chicago Fire’ EP Derek Haas told HL EXCLUSIVELY that the show takes ‘life-altering swings’ in the last 3 episodes, and he had to write the finale 4 months in advance because it’s such a ‘giant’ episode.

Chicago Fire is winding down on season 9, and the last 3 episodes are going to be epic in scale. HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with showrunner Derek Haas about these last episodes of the season, especially the finale. Buckle up because Derek has been planning this finale for MONTHS.

“It’s going to be a giant episode,” Derek told HollywoodLife. “I think it’s going to start off a little bit more introspective as characters are talking about their where they are in their lives and what their hopes are for the future. And then it’s going to build like a freight train into the last 10 minutes, which are as big as anything we’ve done. In fact, I was telling someone else today that I had to write the last 10 pages of the finale back in January before 5 episodes that even been written because what we were planning was going to require so much technical and production design time to be able to produce it. I had to write it 4 months in advance.”

He also noted that the last 3 episodes of the season as a whole are “going to be super impactful across the board. We’re going to be throwing giant, life-altering swings in these last three [episodes].”

In the preview episode, Stella was heading to take her lieutenant’s exam. “We’ll find out the results very quickly. Not as quickly as Stella wants, but we’ve been building towards it the whole season,” Derek teased. He also added that “there are good things on the horizon” for Stella. “For her, there’s a lot of various impactful, life-changing decisions,” Derek continued. “One with regards to Kelly and where that relationship is going will be a big part of these last 3 episodes, and then also her career and what this lieutenant’s exam could potentially mean for her and her place at Firehouse 51 is another big issue.”

When HollywoodLife spoke with Miranda Rae Mayo, she brought up a major Stellaride moment. “There is a big event,” Derek confirmed. “We’re still Chicago Fire, so we’re not going to give the audience exactly what they want. We like to build up expectations and then surprise you.”

When asked whether this event is good or bad, Derek said, “Isn’t that interesting? What a great question. The audience would like to know, but they have to wait and see. I mean, what I love about the show over 9 seasons that I think is true is that you can’t always see exactly what’s going to happen. I think the sweet spot that we always try to hit is the difference between I didn’t see that coming, and I saw that coming. So it’s that I should have seen that, but then we surprise you. We surprise the audience sometimes where they thought something was going to go awful, and it turned out good. We surprised them where they thought something was going to be good, and it turned out tragic.”

Kara Killmer as Sylvie Brett on ‘Chicago Fire.’ (NBC)

Casey also has to reckon with his feelings for Brett after Grainger told Casey that Brett is in love with him. Derek said that conversation was a “hypnotist snap in Casey’s face” and proof that Brett “hasn’t really moved on. That’s going to be a driving force in these last 3 episodes.” He added, “I think that it would be a shame if this season did not provide some conversation between Casey and Bretty where they lay it all out on the line.” Chicago Fire airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.

Laura Prepon On Becoming The Next Martha Stewart & A Possible ‘That ‘70s Show’ Reunion

The actress – whose new cookware line has debuted on HSN – is dishing on her love of entertaining and keeping in touch with Mila Kunis.

“I hope so. That’s the goal.” The look of joy that springs up on Laura Prepon’s face when she’s asked if she hopes to be the next Martha Stewart, expanding her brand into the lifestyle and home entertaining arena, is genuine. The 41-year-old actress has been seriously considering that idea for more than two decades now, even back when she was playing Donna Pinciotti on That ‘70s Show.

Today the mom-of-two is sitting in her New York home while chatting about PrepOn Kitchen, her new cookware line that recently debuted on HSN. In between fielding questions about whether or not there’ll be a That ‘70s Show reunion (there won’t, but more on that later), she’s revealing the inspiration behind her savvy cooking hacks.

“I basically grew up in the kitchen. My mother was a gourmet chef and I was always so inspired watching her as a youngster,” Laura tells HollywoodLife. “But you know, she was always cooking and was never present with us at any meals. Even as a youngster, even though I was so inspired by her in the kitchen, I felt like there’s got to be a better way.

“There’s got to be an easier way, a more practical way to still be able to share this nourishment with your loved ones. Because, truly, that’s how I share my love with my friends and family. I cook for them and we cook together.”

You can tell the level of thought that went into designing the PrepOn Kitchen products. For example, the cutting board, which features an arm, so you can attach a compostable bag to slide product waste into as you chop so your counter doesn’t overflow. Or the multi-sized silicone food lids that can be snapped over a half-eaten apple, a jar or a can to preserve leftover food.

Fantasizing about creative solutions to everyday problems has been Laura’s jam for a long time. “I’ve always kind of had a business mind,” says the two-time author about expanding PrepOn Kitchen into a lifestyle brand, à la Martha Stewart or Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop. “I love juggling a bunch of things at once…”

“I’ve been wanting to do one of the culinary lines since I was a child,” says the Orange Is The New Black star who tried to turn her love of cooking and entertaining into a TV show decades ago.

“It’s always been a passion of mine,” she says. “I started doing That ‘70s Show when I was 18-years-old. The first show I wanted to sell was a show called Entertaining 101.” Laura had a concept and a pitch and even put together a presentation with pictures of “themed parties” that she’d hosted.

Laura says she has always loved cooking and entertaining. (Todd Huffman)

No one bit. She sold a show about poker playing instead but her love of the genre never went away. “I’ve always loved entertaining and home décor and especially, of course, the kitchen,” she says. Giving tips on family gatherings, streamlining the whole process, especially as a working mom of a 3-year-old and a toddler, is her focus now. “I just want things easier and less stressful, especially with cooking,” she says.

When it comes to chitchatting with other working moms, her tribe of parents include her former That ‘70s Show castmates, like Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher who have two children of their own.

“Actually, my last book that came out – You and I, As Mothers – I interviewed Mila for that and she shared so many wonderful things,” Laura says. Sharing a set again for a That ‘70s Show reunion, however, is not on the cards, according to the star.

“That experience was wonderful,” she says of the show that ran from 1998 to 2006. “It’s in this time capsule for us… It really is just this special moment in my life and, I’m not going to speak for the others, but I know it was pivotal for so many of us and it kind of…wants to stay there, you know what I mean? Like in that time capsule where, when we get together we laugh about it, or like Mila sends me something funny…”

In the meantime, Laura has a third book to write, children to raise and an empire to build. And, yes, she’s already dreaming up new items to add to her PrepOn line. “I have little scraps of paper [in my office] and [I’ve] ripped things off with design ideas for my product line, because I really have been thinking of this line for years. It comes from such a deep place.”

‘Bridgerton’ producer Shonda Rhimes has opened up about actor Rege-Jean Page’s departure from the buzzy Netflix drama, and whether he will return for a cameo.

Shonda Rhimes, 51, has finally answered the question that Bridgerton fans have been wondering: will Regé-Jean Page, 31, return for a cameo? After the actor announced he was leaving the popular series, Shonda, and the Head of Global TV at Netflix, Bela Bajaria, sat down for a Hollywood Reporter roundtable featuring the most powerful female execs in the industry. “I was like, ‘I’ve killed many a man that people adore,’” the Grey’s Anatomy boss began. “I’m so surprised that everybody is [losing it over a character we’ve watched] for eight episodes leaving.”

She added, “But obviously Regé is an amazing actor and he did an amazing thing and people responded. I also was surprised because the nature of this series is simply, this year it’s this couple, this year it’s [that] couple.” Bela then noted it was unlikely he would return for season two. “Those books [the Bridgerton book series that inspired the show] really dictated what we did, and we want talent to have an amazing experience and tell the story they’re telling authentically, not, ‘Oh, can you just come over here and do this little thing?’” she told the outlet. “Like, is that satisfying? Is that what actors want to do? He delivered on his story.”

Shonda also said it wouldn’t make sense for him to return in a small role, as the next season will focus on Daphne’s big brother, Anthony as he “intends to dominate the social season.” She continued, “I was just excited about the idea of being able to tell a complete romantic tale that has an end, where you’re not finding 14 other reasons why the couple can’t be together or frankly having Regé stand in the background of somebody else’s romance. That doesn’t make sense.”

Fans of the hit Netflix show were shocked when the hunky actor announced he was leaving the series. “Pleasure and a privilege,” he tweeted at the time. “An honour to be a member of the family – on and off screen, cast, crew and incredible fans – the love is real and will just keep growing.” Even Kim Kardashian was taken aback by the news. “I’m NOT ok!!!!!,” the 40-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star wrote over the formal announcement that Bridgerton‘s Instagram account issued. Kim had multiple questions: “What is happening!!??? How can this be?”

Kourney Kardashian has literally made her love for boyfriend Travis Barker permanent. She personally tattooed ‘I love you’ on his arm in her own handwriting.

Kourtney Kardashian is having all sorts of new life experiences with boyfriend Travis Barker, 45, including learning how to apply an ink tattoo on her body art-loving beau. She added a new tattoo to his vast collection, but this is one he will treasure forever. In a series of Instagram photos and videos, Kourtney showed off how she inked the words “I love you” onto Travis’ right arm in dark ink, in her own gorgeous handwriting.

Kourt, 42, shared the photos on Wed. May 12, showing her at first with the ink gun in her hand, looking down intently as she applied something to his right forearm. The mother of three looked casually beautiful, in a white tank top with a black bra underneath, as her long brunette locks flowed freely. She was next seen in a video, with her hands protected in black gloves, working the ink gun. A man could be seen over her shoulder, watching to make Kourt was comfortable in tattooing Travis’ arm.

In the post captioned “I tattoo,” Kourtney was seen in one photograph writing on a piece of paper. She was apparently giving what she was about to ink on Travis’ arm a practice run. She had a bright smile on her face, as Travis put his left arm lovingly around her and looked down at what she had in store for him.

The final photo gave the big reveal, as it showed a close up of Kourtney’s delicate handwriting where she inked “I love you” on a patch of Travis arm where an existing tattoo still had some open skin in the middle. Fans absolutely lost their minds that the reality star is so crazy about the Blink 182 drummer that she actually permanently professed her love via tattooing his arm. Within 15 minutes of her sharing the post, it had already racked up over half a million likes!

Travis already has one other tattoo in Kourtney’s handwriting that also means a lot to the couple. They’re both massive fans of the 1993 crime drama True Romance. She wrote out “You’re so cool,” which is a line featured in a prominent scene in the film, as well as the name of the movie’s love theme by composer Hans Zimmer. Kourtney wrote it out and Travis applied the black ink tattoo himself on his upper right thigh, which he showed off to fans in a Mar. 24 IG post. With the amount of tattoos he’s getting courtesy of his girlfriend’s penmanship and her feelings, these two have shown how incredibly serious their relationship has become. The pair was longtime friends before they started dating in Jan. 2021, going public with their romance a month later.

‘American Idol’s Caleb Kennedy, 16, apologized for ‘disappointing’ fans and making ‘people lose respect for me’ after a controversial video surfaced online.

American Idol Top 5 finalist Caleb Kennedy, 16, announced on May 12 that he has been eliminated from the competition series while apologizing for appearing in a controversial video that circulated online the same day. “Hey y’all, this is gonna be a bit of a surprise, but I am no longer gonna be on American Idol,” Caleb tweeted. “There was a video that surfaced on the internet and it displayed actions that were not meant to be taken in any way. I was younger and did not think about the actions, but that’s not an excuse.”

The video in question showed Caleb sitting next to another person wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood, and was captioned “bow.” It’s unclear when the video was filmed. “I wanna say sorry to all my fans and everyone who I have let down,” Caleb tweeted. “I’ll be taking a little time off social media to better myself, but saying that, I know this has hurt and disappointed a lot of people and made people lose respect for me. I’m so sorry! I pray that I can one day regain your trust in who I am and have your respect!”

He ended by thanking those who have “supported” him. Caleb comes from Roebuck, South Carolina, and impressed the American Idol judges deeply during his first audition. He sang an original song, called “Nowhere,” and told Luke Bryan that he writes new music “every day.” Katy Perry told him that she believed he had “something real special,” and Lionel Richie even said Caleb already mastered a “storyteller’s voice.” It was only upward from there.

Caleb’s last appearance on American Idol was during the May 9 show, when he was selected as one of the Top 5. The contestants all tackled a Coldplay hit, and Caleb had opted to put a country spin on “Violet Hill.” Katy told him that the performance “scared” her, but “in a good way because it was that good.” While Lionel said that his confidence seemed like it “dipped” a bit as he sang, he was still doing great.

With Caleb eliminated, the remaining American Idol contestants are: Casey Bishop, Grace Kinstler, Chayce Beckham, and Willie Spence.

The possibility of surgery had Leah Messer on edge during the May 11 episode of ‘Teen Mom 2’. Especially because she didn’t have medical insurance.

Poor Leah Messer. As if finding a lump in her breast wasn’t hard enough, the Teen Mom 2 star then had to deal with the possibility of surgery without any health insurance during the May 11 episode of the MTV series.

During a sit-down chat with her sister, Victoria, Leah revealed that during an ultrasound, her doctor found a tumor in her right breast. But even though they “didn’t seem to think it was cancerous”, it could still “grow” into something dangerous, Leah revealed. And surgery “scared the living s***” out of her.

Tonight on #TeenMom2, the possibility of surgery has @LeahMesser on edge—but she’s staying positive. 🤞✨ pic.twitter.com/aGtqrHcymB

— Teen Mom (@TeenMom) May 11, 2021

“The last big surgery I had, they prescribed me prescription pain medication that I became addicted to. So any kind of open procedure literally scares the f*** out of me,” Leah told Victoria before revealing that she also doesn’t have medical insurance. Leah explained that she was either on her parents’ medical insurance or ex Jeremy Calvert‘s while they were married.

But since she’s no longer an anyone’s plan and now had this health scare, she knew there was no time like the present to go out and get coverage. So she did that — but unfortunately, because Leah’s tumor was a pre-existing condition, her new insurance won’t cover anything that comes from it. So let’s just hope, for her sake, that this non-cancerous tumor remains that way.

Ashley Jones Gives Bar An Answer To His Proposal

Meanwhile, Ashley Jones accepted Bar‘s proposal, but their past family drama threatened to dampen their dream. Ashley always wanted a big wedding, but she said she doesn’t see their two families every getting along. And since she and Bar are doing better than ever now, she doesn’t want to potentially affect their relationship. On a positive note, though, Ashley loved her ring — it was pretty big — and her mom was super happy for her and Bar. It was sweet to see, considering all they’ve been through together.

LeBron James’ children have serious talent, and not just at hoops. His daughter Zhuri fearlessly led her family in a TikTok dance session where she showed off her killer moves.

It’s always a treat when LeBron James gets together with his kids for a TikTok dance video. This time around his adorable six-year-old daughter Zhuri led the session, set to DJ Shawny‘s “Go Daddy Go.” She mouthed along the lyrics to the opening lines as she did a dance routine to the beat of the song. Zhuri pumped her arms, swung them on either side of her body and then when the line came about, “Now pass it to my brother, let’s go” she motioned behind her with her hands for her brothers to follow her as she hopped offscreen.

The video was a family affair, as mom Savannah shimmed across the screen, followed by the couple’s sons, Bryce, 13, and Bronny, 16. Their NBA superstar dad LeBron, 36, brought up the rear, holding up his hands to his chest and seeming to do a series of bunny hop moves, which you can watch in the below video.

Zhuri sure has grown up! She wore her hair in long braids in the video, and donned a white t-shirt with a colorful pink tulip print on the front. Zhuri had on tan leggings, which were perfect to bust out dance moves in. There appeared to be a bunch of balloons on the ceiling that were just out of the camera’s frame, as their curly strings could be seen hanging down into the top of the video. It looked like the family TikTok dance might have been part of a Mother’s Day celebration, as LeBron posted the video to Instagram the day after the holiday on May 10.

LeBron and his family definitely provided plenty of amazing dance content during the 2020 COVID-19 home lockdown. Everyone took part in the viral dance challenge to Wiz Khalifa & Ty Dolla Sign’s song “Something New” on March 22. They also joined together to crush a routine to MC Hammer‘s Can’t Touch This. As fan @thehoopfilms so accurately pointed out in the new TikTok video led by Zhuri, “The James family got moves,” as they’re still dancing as a crew even with quarantine being over.

Sharon’s response came after comedian Michelle Collins reposted a pic of Jennifer and Ben in a car together during their trip along with the caption, “J-Lo’s been with him for like 2 weeks and he’s hot as shit again. I bet his phoenix back tattoo is slowly disappearing like the photo in Back to the Future.” The actress’ short but effective comment read, “Yeah I mean WTF A-Rod?”

Bette Midler

#BenAffleck & #JenniferLopez might be back together? Aww. That's nice, but I was hoping that if we could bring anything back from the early 2000's it would be my pelvic floor muscles.

Bette took to Twitter to tweet a hilarious comment about the nostalgia of Jennifer and Ben. “#BenAffleck & #JenniferLopez might be back together?” she tweeted. “Aww. That’s nice, but I was hoping that if we could bring anything back from the early 2000’s it would be my pelvic floor muscles.”

Kevin Smith

“Bennifer” is trending.
It’s a name I first gave the kids during “Jersey Girl” pre-production, before the world found out they were dating.
I’d later drop the name in an interview with the @nytimes. Shortly thereafter, it appeared in the article and then entered the vernacular.

Kevin Smith directed the 2004 film Jersey Girl, which starred the on-again, off-again couple and shared a tweet in which he took credit for their couple nickname. “‘Bennifer’ is trending. It’s a name I first gave the kids during ‘Jersey Girl’ pre-production, before the world found out they were dating,” he wrote. “I’d later drop the name in an interview with the @nytimes.

Ben’s good friend Matt Damon made headlines on May 11 when he was asked about Jennifer and Ben’s reconciliation on Today. “There’s not enough liquor in the world for you to get me to say something about that,” he joked while adding he hadn’t heard about the Montana trip before the pics went public. “It’s a fascinating story. I hope it’s true. I love them both. … That would be awesome.”

Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg brought on some laughs during a recent episode of The View when the topic of Jennifer and Ben came up. As co-host Sara Haines started talking about why she thinks the former lovebirds should get back together, the Sister Act star fell asleep in her chair. “I’m just going to rest my eyes while you talk about this” she said to her co-hosts at one point before closing her eyes again.

Spencer Pratt

Spencer Pratt simply retweeted a tweet that seemed to indicate his interest in Jennifer and Ben’s status. It included the recent car pic of the stars along with the caption, “I had zero interest in any celebrity couples in 2002 (other than Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake), so I missed the Bennifer train. I’m happy to announce, however, that I’m fully on board in 2021.”

Madonna played attentive soccer mom at son David’s game and made it a family affair, bringing along her eight-year-old twins and her boyfriend Ahlamalik Williams, 27.

While Madonna, 62, still loves to shock her fans with risque Instagram photos, she showed off her maternal side in a series of sweet May 10 IG photos cheering on her 15-year-old son David Banda at one of his soccer games. The pop icon brought along her eight-year-old twin daughters Stella and Estere, who she adopted from Malawi in 2017. The adorable young ladies dressed identically in black long sleeved shirts and green camouflage pants. Madonna was seen in one photo doting on one of the girls by lovingly putting her hand on the twin’s shoulder.

The pop icon dressed appropriately yet stylishly to watch from the sidelines, wearing a Marcell Von Berlin long sleeved, zip-front denim jumpsuit. She donned Anna-Karin Karlsson La Croix Optical frame glasses in an opal hue so she could better see the game, as David is quite the soccer phenom. He even scored a goal to help his team win 3-1.

Madge added some extra style points with a chic black tilted-brim fedora hat to keep her fair facial skin protected from the bright sun. To offset her denim overalls, the “Ray of Light” singer wore multiple necklaces by Lana Jewelry, and a gorgeous blue pendant on a long chain by Eli Halili.

The singer was joined on the sidelines by her 27-year-old boyfriend Ahlamalik Williams. They could be seen in one photo sitting on the grass like any other famly members cheering on the teens on the field. Madonna didn’t even bother to use a chair or a blanket, just plopping down on the grass sideline with no fuss.

Madonna’s son David got the honor of the final photograph among the group of 10 snapshots that the “Justify My Love” singer shared with her 16 million Instagram followers. The pop legend celebrated how it ended up being the best Mother’s Day for her in a video from the day that showed David in action on the field. It even showed him scoring a goal that helped lead his team to a 3-1 victory. “Best Mother’s Day Gift!” she wrote in the video’s caption about her son’s performance. At the end following the game, David approached his mom and wished her a “Happy Mother’s Day” while she hugged him and exclaimed, “Oh my God, you scored a goal” as David lifted his proud mom up in his arms. So sweet!

Bill Gates has reportedly been staying at a gorgeous ultra-exclusive California golf club for several months in the midst of his divorce from wife Melinda Gates because he ‘saw’ the split ‘coming for a long time.’

Bill Gates, 65, is making sure to get some privacy as his $150 billion divorce from his wife of 27 years, Melinda Gates, 56. The Microsoft founder has been staying at The Vintage Club, an ultra-exclusive golf club in Indian Wells, California, for around “three months”, according to a source who spoke to Page Six. The impressive 712-acre location dubs itself as “one of the United States’ most prestigious and ultra-exclusive private country club communities” and has glorious pics taken on site to prove it. Check out the pics of the club HERE.

“Bill clearly saw this divorce coming for a long time because he’s been there for around three months,” the source said about the businessman’s stay at the club. Bill, who owns a home on the property, was spotted there along with his daughter Jennifer Gates, 25, and her fiance, Egyptian millionaire Nayel Nassar, this week, the insider further claimed. Other billionaires like Charles Koch, Philip Anshultz and Dennis Washington are also members of the prestigious club.

The club’s website shows impressive photos of the property and gives information about its history as well as ways to join. It costs $250,000 to join and some of the prices of their homes range from $2.3 million to $20 million, Page Six reported. Some of its features include an 85,000-square-foot clubhouse at the epicenter and various restaurants, a spa, and two 18-hole golf courses.

Bill reportedly spent a whopping $12.5 million for his home at the club in 1990. It is a 13,573-square-foot house that has six bedrooms and nine bathrooms and is placed near a beautiful golf course.

The reports of Bill’s hideout comes after he and Melinda shocked the public when they announced their intent to divorce via social media on May 3. Court documents that the soon-to-be ex-wife filed near their home in Bellevue, Washington, revealed she’s not seeking spousal support from Bill’s $130 billion fortune, and The Wall Street Journal reported she’s been speaking with divorce lawyers since 2019 because the marriage was “irretrievably broken.”

Melinda was also reportedly concerned about Bill’s previous dealings with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. “[The Vintage Club] is the perfect place for Bill to hide out from anyone who wants to question him about his divorce or his alleged ties to Epstein,” Page Six‘s source also said about the reason he’s hiding out. When asked about his association with Epstein in the WSJ in 2019, Bill said, “I met him. I didn’t have any business relationship or friendship with him.”

Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian have been showing off plenty of PDA since they got together. But the rocker’s latest show of love for his girlfriend might just be his hottest yet! 

Travis Barker took to his Instagram story on May 11 to give a super sexy shout out to his girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian. The Blink 182 drummer posted a photo of a custom candle to his social media but it was the sticker on the candle that was really on fire.

The NSFW candle is a custom version of Gwyneth Paltrow’s controversial $75 orgasm candle with a sticker that reads, “This Smells Like Kourtney’s Orgasm.”  Fans couldn’t help but comment on the titillating post. While some argued that the loved up couple was “taking it too far,” others defended the Poosh founder, 42, and drummer, 45.

Of course there were plenty of comments referencing Kourtney’s ex Scott Disick, 37, and the flame he still carries for the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star. One fan wrote: “Now Scott is dying,” while another joked that the Talentless founder would be getting himself a candle. “Scott will be buying,” the fan teased.

It’s no secret that Scott would jump at the chance to get back together with Kourtney. In fact, as HollywoodLife previously reported Scott is worried that Kourtney’s new relationship with Travis could make him “lose his standing within the family.”

An insider explained, “sure he will always be connected because of the kids but if Kourtney moves on and even possibly gets married it will be such a gut punch because he wasn’t the one who did it.”

As much as Scott may not want to face it, Kourtney has moved on. She and Travis, who have been friends for years decided to take their relationship to the next level late last year, and in February they confirmed their romance by sharing a sweet photo of their intertwined hands.

Ever since then, Kourtney and Travis have made it clear they are absolutely crazy about one another. Not only have they been engaging in plenty of PDA, they’ve also enjoyed romantic vacations together, double dates and plenty of quality time.
