New mom Iggy Azalea is back on the market following her split from ex Playboi Carti, however she’s being a lot more ‘selective’ with who she dates.

Iggy Azalea has had a big year! The Australian-born rapper, 30, welcomed a baby son Onyx and endured a very public breakup from her ex Playboi Carti. Now, she’s determined to make the most of 2021, a source close to the “Fancy” hitmaker told HollywoodLife exclusively. “Iggy is on a mission to make 2021 her year for a big transformation. Not so much in terms of a physical makeover, but after everything that happened in 2020 with her relationship and now that she’s looking better than ever, she’s determined to improve all aspects of her life,” the source revealed.

The insider explained that Iggy “took some time for herself” to enjoy life with her adorable son Onyx, but is now ready focus on new beginnings. “She’s taking this next chapter to focus on her career, to try and pick up some hobbies that she’s never done before, and to just do what makes her feel happy,” the source told HL. “Iggy’s not sure that she’s necessarily ready to date, but she’s also not closed off to the idea either. But she knows that she wants to be more selective when it comes to the men she dates especially given the fact that it’s not just about her anymore. She’s really excited about seeing what she can accomplish and where she’ll be in a year from now.”

Iggy recently accused her ex Playboi Carti of not spending Christmas Day with their son, just months after they called it quits. “Too bad you got an album out but can’t even come to Christmas with your own son,” Iggy claimed in her first tweet. “And I was gonna keep it cute and let you live but nah, Not after I just peeped that trifling sh-t. TRIFLING!” She went on to claim that the “Whole Lotta Red” rapper was allegedly refusing to sign their son’s birth certificate, and that she wasn’t “allowed back” into the home she once lived in with Carti.

Nelly spoke to HL about his forthcoming EP that’s ‘country-influenced’ & features many cross-genre collabs!

Nelly is no stranger to the world of country music, collaborating with Tim McGraw on “Over and Over” in 2004, before most artists were doing this kind of cross-genre work. He then brought his talents to Florida Georgia Line for a remix of “Cruise” in 2012, and now, the rapper is back to working with modern country artists on his forthcoming album Heartland. “I don’t call it a country album. I call it country-influenced, because it’s still a Nelly album but it’s a Nelly album with Nelly showing his appreciation and the influence that country music plays on him,” the DWTS alum told HollywoodLife.com in an EXCLUSIVE interview. “It definitely has a vibe that a lot of people will consider that a lot of people will consider country. A lot of the country artists who I appreciate and who I’m cool with will be featured on there as well. It’s a dope vibe.”

Nelly continued, “It’s something that is a little bit different. Obviously, I’m from the ‘Show Me’ state, so you know, we want to represent at all costs and it’s dope. I’m hoping that it can definitely transcend.” It’s been nearly twenty years since Nelly’s breakout album, Country Grammar, which was Grammy nominated and referred to as one of the best rap albums of all time. Ahead of release of Heartland, Nelly has teased fans with a single from the EP with Florida Georgia Line, titled “Lil Bit” back in October.

“They’re like family to me. We’ve been really fortunate enough to do other things with each other such as tours — we’ve been on two tours together that were huge and we’re actually talking again, so we can tour again whenever we get out of all this,” the “Hot In Here” rapper said of FGL. “We were able to get in the studio and come up with something that we thought would capture the imagination of the energy that we’d like to project in a future tour.”

Nelly spoke to HL in collaboration with Frito-Lay, as part of their new campaign for Flamin’ Hot Lays. “Nelly is getting a chance to resurgence, so to speak… as an artist, you don’t ever feel like you’re actually gone anywhere, but I guess you feel it in a sense of how time moves,” he said. “It’s something that I think, caught the attention of what Frito-Lays was trying to do with their resurgence of Flamin’ Hots, and making it even hotter!”

Chris Brown cannot wait until ‘everyone can be together,’ sources share EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife after the singer’s trip to Mexico with Ammika Harris and their son, Aeko.

Chris Brown, 31, has returned to American soil after a relaxing getaway with Ammika Harris, 27, and their one-year-old son Aeko. The little family had an incredible time in Tulum, Mexico, and even marked a major milestone by celebrating Aeko’s first birthday. But now that he is back in the states, Chris is already missing his son and former flame. “Chris is back from his trip with Ammika and Aeko, he’s busy working in the studio again,” a source close to the singer shared EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife.

“Ammika and Aeko are back in Germany so they are doing the long distance thing again, but they FaceTime every day, so they are staying very connected. It’s hard for Chris to be apart from them, he’s missing them already, but he does need to work so he had to get home,” the source continued. Although the family is apart once again, they definitely have the amazing memories they created in Tulum to reminisce on. “The trip was really good for them,” the source went on “They had the time to bond and just spend time as a family and it was good. He’s very happy with how it went and I’m sure he’ll find a way to see them again sooner rather than later.”

And getting his entire family together, including his six-year-old daughter Royalty, is definitely on the singer’s mind. “He can’t wait until everyone can be together and close,” a second source revealed to HL. “Chris is very happy with how everything has been turning out with Aeko and Ammika. He is taking himself as a father as something that is very important to him.” Indeed, Chris missed out on so much during the first year of his son’s life due to the coronavirus pandemic. Moving forward, though, he hopes to rectify that.

“He wants to make sure Royalty and Aeko have a solid foundation. Along with that he has to spend time with Royalty just as much Aeko so he is piecing it together along with work,” the source continued. “He is happy to be blessed to afford to make it all happen and he will see Aeko and Ammika soon.”

More than anything, the trip to Mexico, and any future family excursions the R&B artist plans, is so integral to keeping his family members close. “Chris couldn’t have imagined letting 2020 go by almost an entire year without seeing his son,” a third source told HL. “This trip was imperative to him so that he could have bonding time with Aeko, and also Ammika. Not only for himself, but also for Royalty and for his mom [Joyce Hawkins]. They adore Aeko and it’s crucial Aeko feels as much a part of the family as Royalty,” they continued.

Just as he is taking fatherhood seriously, Chris wants to ensure that his son never feels like their bond isn’t strong due to the distance between them. In fact, our third source revealed that “the last thing Chris would ever want in a million years is for his son to feel any type of way because of the distance separating them physically right now.” Thankfully, though, Chris is fostering strong connections with his family members and putting his little one first. “He’s loved by everyone in their family and Chris cherishes that bond with him.”

Blue Ivy Carter makes her audiobook debut with ‘Hair Love,’ for which she could earn a Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Word performance.

Blue Ivy Carter could be well on her way to earning some serious hardware like her famous parents! The eight-year-old daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z lends her voice to the audiobook adaptation of Matthew A. Cherry‘s Oscar-winning animated short film Hair Love. In the preview clip, which Matthew shared to his Twitter account on November 9, Blue’s sweet voice could be heard clearly saying the introduction to the audiobook.

“Dreamscape presents Hair Love, by Matthew A. Cherry, narrated by Blue Ivy Carter.” The tease lasted only a few seconds, and fans can listen to the clip for themselves below. But once the audiobook becomes available, listeners will be treated to a four-minute reading of the children’s book from Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s eldest. The couple also share three-year-old twins, Rumi and Sir.

Blue’s latest gig means that Grammy glory could be in her future. With her audiobook debut, Blue has the potential to earn a Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Word performance. The youngster, however, is already gaining on her celebrated mom and dad in terms of award statuettes and honors.

The eight-year-old earned the BET Her Award in 2020 for the song “Brown Skin Girl.” As if the honor wasn’t enough, Blue made history upon receiving the award, becoming the youngest recipient of a BET Award! Blue also has a NAACP Image Award for the same song, a collaboration with her mom, WizKid and Saint Jhn, as well as a 2019 Soul Train Award — all at just the age of eight! Bey and Jay’s eldest has also made appearances in the music video for Beyoncé’s powerful anthem “Formation,” as well as appearances in Black Is King.

Beyonce seen on stage with Jay-Z and their daughter, Blue Ivy, as she accepts the Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards in Inglewood on August 24, 2014 [AP].Regardless of what the awards factor will be for Blue, her collaboration on Hair Love will undoubtedly leave an indelible impact on a number of families. The audiobook is based on Matthew A. Cherry’s 2019 short film. The seven-minute animated short earned rave reviews from critics, and went on to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film at the 2020 Oscars. The tender and sweet story follows a dad, who attempts to do his daughter’s hair for the very first time. In May, the film was adapted into a book, with illustrations by Vashti Harrison. The short will also be adapted into a series entitled Young Love, based on the film’s characters.

Matthew previously spoke to HollywoodLife on the significance of the film. “Hair Love really [was] inspired by a lot of these viral videos of Black fathers that were doing their daughters’ hair,” Matthew says. “I thought that it was a good opportunity to showcase the Black family in animation,” he shared with HL. “I think the beautiful thing is that we’re never going to really know the true impact for probably five or 10 years, or so. But people will come up to us all the time, different parents [saying] they wish they would have had something like this when they were kids.”

Jeremy Meeks got very candid while speaking EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife, sharing how he FaceTimes with son, Jayden, ‘two or three times a day’ while the toddler is with Jeremy’s ex, Chloe Green.

Jeremy Meeks shared his softer, emotional side in an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife. The actor and model, 36, chatted with HL about how he and ex, Chloe Green, are making their co-parenting relationship work for their two-year-old son, Jayden Meeks-Green, while the youngster and his mom are in Europe and Jeremy is still in Los Angeles. “I haven’t seen him in almost 10 months,” Jeremy revealed to HL.

Sadly, those 10 months also meant that Jeremy missed his son’s second birthday, “because it was at the height of the pandemic,” he explained. Luckily, Chloe has been a great mother, and has continued to prioritize Jeremy’s relationship with his son, just over one year after the couple split in August 2019. “Chloe is very amazing about calling me everyday to FaceTime so that I can see him and talk to him two or three times a day. Even though they’re nine hours ahead,” Jeremy revealed.

Chloe Green and Jeremy Meeks arrive at the 2017 Princess Grace Awards Gala held at The Beverly Hilton on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 [AP].The actor is so glad to have a positive relationship with Chloe. “I’m grateful she keeps our bond very strong,” he said of being able to connect with his two-year-old. Jeremy and Chloe started dating in June 2017. The two, who were living in London at the time, welcomed Jayden in May 2018, before splitting just over one year later.

Currently, Jeremy is back in Los Angeles and starring in the new BET+ movie Trigger, co-starring Jordyn Woods. The film tells the story of Trey Mass (Jeremy), who spends one night with his brother and sister-in-law (Jordyn) after getting out of prison, having served a 10-year sentence. Circumstances take a dramatic turn, when a party guest at the couple’s home tries to hurt Trey’s brother, leading to a hostage situation.

Clearly, Jeremy has a busy schedule, despite the ongoing pandemic. But once his future projects have wrapped, he is eager to reunite with Jayden. “As soon as everything calms down and I am able to go to Europe I will definitely be there,” Jeremy said of making the trip overseas. “It’s just touch and go right now, which is even harder because I miss my son. He’s growing up so fast and I’m missing a whole bunch,” Jeremy expressed.

Hugging and kissing and spending time,” Jeremy explained. The actor and model also shares son, Jeremy Jr., with his ex-wife Melissa.

Jeremy’s own father was absent from his life since he was nine months old, after receiving “a life sentence for murder,” the model shared. The circumstance left and indelible impact on Jeremy, and showed him “everything I don’t want my sons to feel. So that just made me an even better father than I could ever imagine,” he said.

The actor and model, himself, has had a far less severe run-in with the law. Jeremy was arrested in 2014 for a felony weapons charge. Once his mugshot became public, it went viral. He later found himself walking runways in Milan, and has now turned his sights on acting. But, for Jeremy, fatherhood will always be the most meaningful role in his life. “Because now I [show them] love and I wake them up every day with kisses and hugs. It made me a better father. So, spending time with my kids — it’s everything to me.”

Trigger is now streaming on BET+.

Denise Richards has left ‘RHOBH’ and a source close to production told HollywoodLife it came down to her busy work schedule, and wanting to spend more time with her family.

Denise Richards made the decision to leave The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after two seasons, and a source close to the soap star revealed why. The insider spoke to HollywoodLife exclusively about the Bravo star’s exit from the show, citing her hectic work schedule among the reasons she left. “Denise decided recently that she wasn’t going to come back to Housewives and she did not tell too many people before the news came out,” the source told us. “She thought this last season was a lot on her personal life and she’s not friends with any of the ladies besides Garcelle Beauvais away from the cameras so it didn’t make sense.”

The source also explained that Denise wants to spend more time with her family. “She had to spend a lot of time away from her girls with her filming schedule and when you couple that with her soap schedule and her other acting projects, she had barely any free time and something had to give,” they told HL. “She wants to spend more time focusing on acting and with her family. It really wasn’t a hard decision for her to make. She didn’t like doing it anymore so she walked away, but the show did want her back. It just became too much and it wasn’t fun anymore.”

A second source close to production of the popular reality show told HL that “nobody was surprised” Denise opted not to return. “Most of them didn’t think they’d ever see her again after filming the season. They felt she skipped a lot of things and grew frustrated with her,” the insider explained. “They would talk on a group text about things when they needed to, but that was it. Nobody but Garcelle and Dorit [Kemsley] here and there were actually having conversations with her that weren’t necessary.”

Denise’s rep confirmed on September 9 that she would exit the show, amid drama surrounding an alleged affair she had with RHOBH alum Brandi Glanville. Over the course of the last several episodes, Denise had to defend herself against most of her co-stars, after they claimed that she and Brandi had sex behind closed doors.

Zac Efron and Vanessa Valladares are going strong, and sources close to the actor shared EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife that he’s ready to ‘put down some roots in Australia!’

Zac Efron has found a new romance down under, and this love could be everlasting. The actor has been spotted with Vanessa Valladares, pictured below, for the last several days on romantic excursions and dates around Byron Bay during Zac’s stay in Australia, and their relationship is growing each day. “Zac has been saying he’d love to meet someone outside of Hollywood so it isn’t a shock to any of his friends that he’s dating someone in Australia. She’s totally his type and it won’t bother him a bit that she’s not famous the way he is,” HollywoodLife learned EXCLUSIVELY from an initial close to the High School Musical alum, 32.

For Zac, being famous is “not something he cares about at all.” In fact, the actor is described by those close to him as “very fun loving and generous,” and “such a good guy.” Furthermore, Zac has always been “a relationship kind of guy.” But while his romance with Vanessa is still fresh, our source affirmed that the relationship “could definitely turn into something long-lasting, especially because he does want to put down some roots in Australia.”

Indeed, the source reiterated that the actor is “looking to buy a place there,” although he will be traveling for work. But the young actor “loves the pace of life in Australia and he loves the surfing. Surfing is a huge passion for him. He loves being in the ocean. When he’s in LA he spends a lot of time in Venice and Byron [Bay] in Australia has the same kind of boho surfer vibe so it makes sense he’s chosen there.”

Another source concurred with our initial insider’s insight, saying that “Australia has really become a second home to Zac these past several months and he fled to Byron Bay to escape the pandemic in the US. It’s been known as ‘Little Hollywood’ because a ton of celebrities own properties there and it’s the perfect place to get away and relax.”

While in Byron Bay, Zac has also spent time with the Hemsworth brothers — actors Chris Hemsworth and Liam. The guys have “been spending a lot of time surfing,” while Zac has been “dating Vanessa,” the source confirmed. “It’s an incredible place so it’s a no brainer that he’s been checking out properties to purchase there.”

Zac Efron, pictured above, has been spending much of his time in Australia with Vanessa Valladares [AP Images].But at the core of what he really wants, Zac is looking to find some normalcy away of the flashing lights and attention of Hollywood. “Zac‘s major goal in Hollywood and in relationships is for it to all be taken seriously,” a third source shared with HL. “He has continuously been able to thread through the drama and celebrity nonsense of it all in such a way but being in Australia is allowing him to have a bit of a more normal life and being with Vanessa it can be even more normal and he hasn’t really been able to experience that.”

Ever since Zac was a teenager, he has been under the spotlight. A number of his romances have drawn interest from fans, but now, the actor is enjoying this new lease on life and putting past scrutiny behind him. The actor feels like he “is finally getting his way by being out of the states and it is really refreshing and fun.” As for his budding romance, HL learned that Zac “is taking to it very well and very excited to see where things go as well from this point forward.”

HollywoodLife reached out to Zac Efron’s rep for comment.

Jade Cline is back for another season of ‘Teen Mom 2’ and she opened up about how difficult it was dealing with ‘cast member drama’.

Teen Mom 2 star Jade Cline has opened up about the one thing that pushed her to the “breaking point” while filming the popular reality show. The MTV star spoke to HollywoodLife exclusively about filming the reunion episode. “I feel like I probably had enough after filming the reunion,” she began. “Because of COVID and everything, the first episode of the season started filming almost right after wrapping up the reunion of last year and the reunion was just super, super annoying, like it was just really annoying.”

The mom-of-one, who has an adorable mini-me named Kloie, explained that the day was “extremely long” and involved plenty of drama. “There was old cast member drama, on top of drama with me and my mom and these reunions get so hard on a lot of people. There’s tension, people are upset, and I feel like it brings on that energy,” she told HL. “The season before had been difficult and that’s why I kind of just had it with filming and being around people, I just kind of wanted to be alone.

As Jade begins her second season of Teen Mom 2, she reflected on her time with the franchise. “I think as my life has gone on, it’s been documented. I watch it get better but there’s harder obstacles that were different for that time of the year” she said. “But you grow past certain things in life, you get past obstacles that you have to learn how to grow around.”

She added, “There’s a lot of challenging things going on, but I think that the older I’ve gotten, I’ve learned a little bit more, and been a lot more self-aware of what I’m doing and everything that I’m doing especially around my kid. I feel like a lot of people have this misconception that if I’m arguing with someone, or something’s going on we’re all doing this on front of my kid which is not the case.”

It comes amid reports that Teresa, the newly-single mom-of-four, would be the main focus of the show’s upcoming season. “A lot of this season will revolve around Teresa and what’s going on in her life, post split,” a source close to production told HollywoodLife exclusively. “The show is doing a great job trying to create bubbles and a safe environment for everyone. You’re going to see a lot of inside their homes so they can control who comes and goes and keep it safe for everyone.”

The source also dished that the ladies will be channeling their inner Snooki‘s on Season 11. “You’ll see a lot of the ladies down at the Jersey Shore this summer,” they told HL. Although Teresa is now single, following her split from estranged husband Joe Giudice, COVID-19 restrictions have made dating in 2020 difficult — so fans will have to wait to find out whether the mom-of-four is putting herself back on the market!

He really likes her and is excited that he is with her now that he is out of Orlando,” a source close to Devin explained. “He is very excited to see what happens next and is happy that he has tons of time to make things even more serious.” Evidently, it seems that the potential couple’s relationship is getting better “day by day.” But Devin is in “no rush to change the good fortune hanging out with her has brought him. He is falling for her.”

Beyond what they already have in common, the source added that Kendall and Devin’s “physical attraction is off the charts.” More importantly, however, “the fact that they are both very successful is a genuine trait they like about each other and they make each other laugh. She also loves that he makes zero of a big deal of the family she is in. He treats her normal and she respects how down to earth he is while being a big name in the NBA.”

Since they have been spending so much time together, Devin has treated Kendall “like a total princess,” another source close to the KarJenner family shared. “They’re both super down to earth and have hung out in the same circle of friends for years. They both love the outdoors and nature, and aren’t afraid of trying new adventures.” With such a strong foundation, it’s no wonder that Kendall and Devin “have a great connection and it seems they’re on the same page in terms of just taking things one day at a time and not rushing things.” HollywoodLife reached out to Kendall Jenner’s rep and Devin Booker’s rep for comment.

Newly single Teresa Giudice will play a key role in the upcoming season of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’, an insider told HollywoodLife.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, 48, will be the main focus of the show’s upcoming season, a source close to production told HollywoodLife exclusively. “A lot of this season will revolve around Teresa and what’s going on in her life, post split,” the insider dished to us. “The show is doing a great job trying to create bubbles and a safe environment for everyone. You’re going to see a lot of inside their homes so they can control who comes and goes and keep it safe for everyone.”

The source also dished that the ladies will be channeling their inner Snooki‘s on Season 11. “You’ll see a lot of the ladies down at the Jersey Shore this summer,” they told HL. Although Teresa is now single, following her split from estranged husband Joe Giudice, COVID-19 restrictions have made dating in 2020 difficult — so fans will have to wait to find out whether the mom-of-four is putting herself back on the market!

Meanwhile, we previously reported that Joe is hopeful to see his four daughters — eldest Gia, 19, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 11 — as he remains in Italy following his ongoing legal issues in the United States. The pandemic has made travel nearly impossible at the moment, but, they’re planning on making a reunion happen by meeting up later this year, HollywoodLife learned exclusively!

“Teresa’s next plan to see Joe is in The Bahamas in the fall,” a source close to the mom-of-four said. It’s not a getaway for the exes, though. Joe is set to have his long-awaited celebrity boxing match against Jennifer Lopez‘s ex-husband, Ojani Noa, in the Caribbean country on October 24. Yes, Teresa will be there cheering on Joe from the stands! As we previously reported, Teresa’s really excited for the match, because she “knows how much this means to him.”

A source close to Joe told us, “Joe is excited that his opponent is an athlete,” referencing Ojani’s profession as a personal trainer. “He’s been looking for a competitive fight and now he has one. He can’t wait until the gyms open so he can begin working with a trainer.”

Former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger is on vacation in Portugal with new boyfriend Thom Evans, and she stunned in a pink bikini.

Things are heating up between Nicole Scherzinger, 42, and her new boyfriend Thom Evans. The couple showed off their dance moves in a new video filmed on the beach in Portugal, and the hunky 35-year-old was grinding up against the former Pussycat Dolls singer. Nicole showed off her toned figure in a pale pink bikini as she danced along to “Lion Lover” by Dan Stevens from the Netflix series Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga. 

Thom posted the video to his Instagram Story with the caption “#eurovisionmovie” along with a lion and a laugh crying emoji. In the clip, he was seen running up behind Nicole, wearing nothing but dark green swimming trunks, and dancing along to the fast-paced song behind her. The couple met in October 2019 when Thom was a contestant on The X Factor: Celebrity and the “Don’t Cha” singer served as a judge. It seems the romance has blossomed quickly, as the pair jetted off to Portugal to celebrate Nicole’s 42nd birthday in late June.

Earlier in the year, HollywoodLife spoke to Nicole’s trainer Alissa Tucker of AKT Fitness — the mastermind behind her long, lean muscles and hard abs. So just how much work does it take to look this good, one might ask? Spoiler alert — It sounds hard, but it can be done at home! In an EXCLUSIVE interview with HL, Alissa took the time to break down just how her method works, why it’s effective and all of the stars are running to try it, no matter where in the world they are, even at home!

“Nicole is obviously a fabulous dancer so she loves our AKT DANCE workouts. We alternate between dance cardio and strength intervals for a full body workout. She loves working her abs so we spend a little extra time on core, focusing on the core as a whole instead of just the rectus abdominis [superficial “6 pack” muscles],” she began. “One of the best ways to work your entire core is, you guessed it, a plank. The entire second song of our DANCE workout is spent in a plank doing moves like knee drops, hip twists and mountain climbers to fire up the core so it’s ‘turned on’ throughout the entire workout. Then we always end the workout with a good core burnout, mixing it up, always challenging the body in different ways.”

Supermodel Tyson Beckford just launched his own cologne — Orion Sky — but it may be a while before he actually gets to wear the sexy new scent on a date.

Tyson Beckford shot to fame in the 1990’s as the face of Ralph Lauren Polo Sport cologne. Now, decades later the iconic male model is the face of his own cologne, Orion Sky. While promoting his new fragrance the 49-year-old opened up to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY about why his love life is on hold and what it will take to win his heart.

This pandemic has got me super single,” Tyson revealed to HL. “Normally I’m traveling and meeting people, but since I’ve been on lockdown I have little to no interest in a relationship. I’ve just been burying myself in working out and work.”

Tyson tells HL he was hoping to find love this summer, but COVID-19 has put a major dent in his plans. “I kept saying to myself, don’t worry this summer I’ll go out, start to meet people and hopefully I’ll meet somebody. But this hasn’t been a normal summer, we can’t really go out and socialize so it’s tough, it’s really tough.”

When Tyson does get back out there it’s going to take more than just good looks to win him over. “I’m looking for someone who’s educated,” he tells HL.  “Who’s about the now, meaning they realize what’s going on in the world. They’re not clueless. I don’t want to date another model per se, that’s just going to be looking at her Instagram and wondering how she can get more followers. I want somebody with a lot more awareness of what’s going on in the world and how they’re willing to help. Smart is everything.”

In the meantime, Tyson has been keeping busy in lockdown with multiple projects, including his new cologne. “It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do,” he shares with HL. “I was with Ralph Lauren and Polo Sport fragrance and I learned so much working there. And then once the opportunity came to work on my own fragrance I just jumped on it. I am so excited for people to be able to smell it. And what’s so great about it is that once people get it, and they smell it, they’re like this is amazing.”

Described as an “earthy, spicy scent with uplifting fresh notes of citrus and lavender” combined with the “smoky sophistication of amber and musk” the cologne takes it’s name from the Orion’s Belt, the most prominent constellation in the sky.

The starry name was the perfect choice for Tyson’s new scent because, as he tells HL, he’s always been into astronomy. “The moon plays such a big part in our oceans and, you know, high tide, low tide. And the moon actually sets the mood for people. I just wanted a name that was going to speak volumes.  We decided on Orion Sky because to me that describes it. It’s a scent I’ve never smelled before. When you smell it on someone, it’s like, wow, this is out of this world.”

Kelly Clarkson proved she has no ill-feelings towards her estranged husband Brandon Blackstock when she thanked him in her Emmy’s speech — here’s why she did it!

Kelly Clarkson, 38, is so grateful for her estranged husband Brandon Blackstock, 43, that she thanked him in her Emmy acceptance speech. The American Idol alum gave her ex a shoutout in her June 27 thank-you message on Twitter after winning the “Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host” award. A source close to the singer told HollywoodLife exclusively why she thanked Brandon, just weeks after filing for divorce. “Kelly thanked Brandon in her speech because she is very thankful for everything he’s done for her career,” the source dished.

“He has helped make almost every decision since they met. She knows he always has her best interest at heart when it comes to her business and as of right now and he’s been there for many big decisions in her career.” The source also told HL that the reality star turned TV personality even credits “a lot of her successes” to her music manager ex-hubby.

“He really helped drive her career to the next level. It’s clear he wants her to succeed and do well and he’s always believed in her talents. Divorce shouldn’t change that.” The former couple, who tied the knot in 2013, and share their two children River, 6, and Remington, 4, filed for divorce earlier this month.

Documents obtained by HL don’t indicate why the couple is splitting – just that the curtain has fallen on their marriage. The split comes seemingly out of nowhere. During the Dec. 22, 2019 episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, Kelly spoke with The Voice winner Brynn Cartelli. During the talk, Kelly indicated that her sex life was still on fire. “Well, Brynn, I was single for many years, so I have children. And how one makes children is generally what I do before bed. That’s not a lie. That’s real, and it’s not weird. It’s natural.”
Nevertheless, it’s unlikely the split will come between their friendship. In her Emmy’s acceptance speech she tweeted, “Thank you so much to @BBlackstock [Brandon’s Twitter handle] for believing in me & convincing me to do [The Kelly Clarkson Show],” she wrote. The songstress also gave special thanks to her assistant, Tricia, “for being the greatest friend/assistant” and added the hashtags “#BestEmilyICouldHaveAskedFor” and “#DaytimeEmmys2020.”

Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich confirmed their split on May 29 and now HL is EXCLUSIVELY learning that after spending ‘time apart’ they realized they are ‘better off going their separate ways.’

Julianne Hough, 31, and Brooks Laich, 36, shocked many people when they announced the end of their marriage in a joint public statement on May 29, and now we’re learning that they tried to stay together by taking “time apart” but it ultimately didn’t work out. “Julianne and Brooks still have so much love for each other, they did everything they could to save their marriage,” source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “They even hoped taking some time to live apart might bring them back together but ultimately it had the opposite effect and made them realize they are better off going their separate ways.”

Despite the end of their marriage, the source insisted that the former lovebirds are still on good terms and have nothing but “love” for each other. “They will always love and support each other and share a strong bond,” the source explained. “Their marriage is over but their friendship and love will remain.”

“There is no anger or bitterness, they are sad that things didn’t work out the way they had hoped when they walked down the aisle but they are both at peace with the decision,” the source continued. “It’s the best thing for both of them.”

Julianne and Brooks, who got married in July 2017, first caused speculation that their marriage may be in trouble when they quarantined in separate places after the stay-at-home order went into effect across the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She stayed in Los Angeles while he stayed in Idaho. What’s interesting, though, is that the now exes appeared to flirt with each other on Instagram one day before announcing their separation.

“This is awesome haha,” the Dancing With the Stars champion commented on a pic of Brooks flexing his muscles and showing off his abs. “Also the fact that you just figured out what a thirst trap is….” It didn’t take long for Brooks to respond with, “you know how i do (5 years late)..…”

Despite the confusing exchange, Julianne and Brooks definitely seem to be going forward with their split. It’s great to know that they are staying friends, though, and we wish them both a lot of happiness in the future!

‘RHONJ’ viewers should expect to see Teresa Giudice living her best life next season! The fan-favorite is totally moving on from her ex-husband Joe, and will begin dating again.

Teresa Giudice is officially moving on from her ex Joe Giudice! The Real Housewives of New Jersey is set to resume filming on July 20, after production was halted in March due to the coronavirus outbreak. A source close to the Bravo reality show has shared what viewers can expect from season 11 — namely the 48-year-old’s love life post-divorce. “Teresa’s new storyline will be all about moving forward and moving on with her life, and a large focus of the show will be about how amazing she’s doing,” they dished to HL exclusively.

“You will definitely see her dating and she’s expressed she’s starting to feel ready. She’d like to find someone eventually to settle down with who’s older. The other ladies story lines are still being figured out. The show will heavily revolve around her during season 11,” the insider told us.

Although Teresa and Joe may be ending their 20 year marriage, but the pair still have love for each other! She was sure to wish her ex a happy 48th birthday via Instagram on Friday, May 22, and her message was so sweet. “Happy Birthday,” Teresa began her comment on Joe’s photo, along with several celebratory emojis, including a candlelit cake, gift, and confetti! “Hope you have the best birthday ever,” she added, including two kissy face emojis.
Our source also added that “all the ladies” will be returning to our screens for season 11. “The network is toying with the idea of adding someone else, but since they weren’t even one full week into filming, they haven’t decided yet. Some of them hadn’t even filmed together and very few scenes had been filmed,” the source explained. “They are talking to a few women though to see if they’d mesh, but it’s looking like the same ladies from next season only.”
It comes amid reports the women were told they will begin filming again on July 20. “The network doesn’t want to take any chances on starting earlier than that, but everyone’s feeling excited and ready to go. They got the call about filming this week,” our source added.
Along with Teresa, the ladies returning for season 11 are Melissa Gorga, 41, Margaret Josephs, 53, Jennifer Aydin, 43, Dolores Catania, 49, and Jackie Goldschneider, 43.

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green announced they were splitting after nearly 10 years of marriage, however the couple both remain very ‘hands on’ when it comes to their kids.

Brian Austin Green, 46, and Megan Fox, 34, may be parting ways, but the pair are just as committed as ever to co-parenting their three children Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 3. A source close to the couple revealed the duo, who have also raised Brian’s eldest son Kassius, 18, were putting their kids needs first. “Brian and Megan are both really great, hands on parents. Even in the separations they have had over the years, they always put the kids first and Megan stayed in the family home with the kids while Brian went elsewhere,” the source told HollywoodLife exclusively. “Brian also has his oldest son who would spend time with him often at his Malibu home. They felt that was the best for the kids and Brian would see the kids as much as he could. He’s a great father, very engaging and hands on.”

The source added that the pair were able to transition into co-parenting quite easily, as they’ve done so in the past. “They know how to co-parent well in separations because they’ve done it before. They always put the kids first though. Megan also had a very close relationship with his oldest son and included him in everything. She took the role of step-mom very seriously.” Although Brian’s Malibu home isn’t as big as the family home the couple shared, the kids are still spending time with their dad. “Right now the kids are still with Megan most of the time but Brian sees them very, very often,” the source dished to HL.

“His place in Malibu isn’t that big and it’s more of a bachelor pad. Megan won’t go out of her way to not have a relationship with Kassius but now that he’s older, he has his own life. He’s still included in everything for the kids like birthday parties and holidays. They’re going to try to still be a family for the sake of the kids,” they added. Brian broke the unexpected news that the couple were splitting on the May 18 episode of his podcast, …With Brian Austin Green, and the grief in his voice was apparent.

“I will always love her. And I know she will always love me and I know as far as a family what we have built is really cool and really special,” Brian said of Megan. Nevertheless, the family is sticking together; Brian revealed they’ll “still do family vacations and holidays as a family and really make that a focus for the kids.”

‘All That’ star Kate Godfrey is playing the one and only Justin Bieber in an epic ‘Yummy’ music video parody that will air during the May 16 episode. HL spoke with Kate about the transformation process and more!

Get ready to do a double-take! All That cast member Kate Godfrey will be playing Justin Bieber in the May 16 episode of the Nickelodeon sketch series. Kate will star in a music video parody of Justin’s hit song “Yummy.” The All That version takes place in a school cafeteria. Some of the lyrics have been changed, and this version will bring on all the laughs. Kate looks exactly like Justin, complete with a bright pink wig and a matching sweatshirt. HollywoodLife talked with Kate about impersonating one of the biggest pop stars in the world.

“I was SO excited. I really love playing boys because I can make choices that I would never be able to make with any of my other characters. I was excited to see what the writers had planned,” Kate told HollywoodLife. To prepare for the “Yummy” parody, Kate admitted that she watched the original video “so many times to study his movements and facial expressions. I watched his interviews, performances, and his dancing. I had to make sure my actions weren’t too feminine because that’s all I know.”

The 16-year-old revealed that her favorite part about filming the parody was “how nice and supportive the dancers were. They had such a good vibe! They were really fun to laugh with. I also loved doing the dance. Chris Judd choreographed the music video, and he killed it.”

Kate already has an idea about another Justin Bieber video parody she could do in the future. “The writers for All That never fail to amaze me, so I would have to see what they have in mind! Maybe Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, played by Nathan Janak, could do a parody on the new song they just released.” We’d be down for All That’s take on “Stuck With U!” All That airs Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. on Nickelodeon.

The Garcia family experienced a turning point in last week’s episode of ‘The Baker & the Beauty.’ HL spoke with Belissa Escobedo about Natalie coming out and Natalie’s relationship with her mother going forward.

Vanessa wasn’t the only surprise at the Garcia family dinner during the May 4 episode of The Baker and the Beauty. Natalie came out to her family in an emotional scene, but Mari didn’t immediately accept her daughter’s sexuality. Belissa Escobedo talked with HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY about Mari’s reaction to Natalie coming out. “I was a little surprised only because so often we see the story of usually the father having a really tough time when it comes to sexuality, and I thought that was where they were going to go,” Belissa told HollywoodLife. “With Mari, it’s a bit more heartbreaking for me just because that mother-daughter relationship is so sacred. You really see both sides struggling, and it’s such an honest and understandable struggle on both ends. You know Mari is really shocked by all of this and is just taking it all in.”

Belissa opened up about how this moment will impact this mother-daughter relationship going forward. “Their relationship is forever changed,” Belissa admitted. “From here, it’s only about growth. It’s going to be a challenge for both of them to see where they’re going to be able to come together and have this relationship again.” She added that this will cause “tension” throughout the Garcia family, which is not something they’re used to. “They’re such a vocal family, everything’s usually out in the open, and we’re all in each other’s business,” she said.

As for Natalie and Amy’s romantic future, Belissa teased that they will be “going on lots of adventures together.” She talked about how that relationship has evolved into a sweet romance. “What I really love is how genuine the friendship built,” Belissa told HollywoodLife. “From their first meeting and as you’ll see throughout the season, you just watched these two young girls find a best friend and then discover that it’s something else. They’re learning how to navigate that and all the awkwardness. It’s not a fairy tale romantic comedy. There’s a lot of mess-ups. You get to see that with them. They’re so so forgiving and compassionate with each other. It’s beautiful.”

The actress said that it’s “so vital for the younger generation” to be seeing a relationship like Natalie and Amy’s on TV. “Growing up, I didn’t have that. Not only did I not really have any LGBTQ representation on TV, but specifically as a Latina, that was really tough. It’s a different navigation that you have to go through, so I think it’s really important to have Natalie on-screen right now.” The Baker and the Beauty airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on ABC.
