Dorit & PK’s Legal Battle Is Over - Dorit and PK Kemsley’s million-dollar legal battle is finally over. Their dispute over an allegedly unpaid $1-point-two-million loan has reportedly been settled. According to court docs obtained by The Blast, the lender, Nicos Kirzis, has dismissed all claims against PK. It’s been dismissed without prejudice, meaning he can’t bring it back to court in the future. As we've been telling you, Dorit was dragged into the legal battle multiple times, so this means she’s in the clear too. So far it’s unclear what the conclusion is – as in, whether the alleged debt was paid off or something else.
Blake Lively Shares Amazon Baby Registry - As we previously told you, Blake Lively welcomed her third child with Ryan Reynolds last week. As she makes room for the newest member of their growing family, the star is sharing her parenting “must-haves.” This obviously isn’t the star’s first rodeo, so by now, she knows how “overwhelming” becoming a parent can be. So, she’s shared her Amazon baby registry, jam-packed with eco-friendly products for feeding, bathing, bedtime, and more. That includes an all-in-one diaper disposal system called “Diaper Genie,” some cute flatware sets, a four-in-one “Babycook” steam cooker and blender, and Chronicle Women’s “The Little Feminist” board book set. “Before I had my first [child], I was lucky enough to have the parents in my life who I trusted most share their ‘must-haves’ with me,” Lively shares. “I hope to do the same for you with my baby registry picks. Good luck! You’re gonna need it.”
Here’s Who’s Banned From “Ellen” And Why - While just about every A-lister you can think of showed up to Ellen DeGeneres’ 50th birthday party back in February, it turns out not everyone’s welcome on her talk show. As you may recall, Ellen DeGeneres defended her friendship with former President George W. Bush after facing backlash, saying it’s okay to be friends with people with different views… she doesn’t always practice what she preaches when it comes to booking guests for her show. Page Six has revealed the stars that have been banned from the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” and why. Most of the beefs have something to do with a star speaking out against the LGBTQ community, although there are some inconsistencies – not only with Bush, but also with Ellen’s support for Kevin Hart after he stepped down as host of this year’s Oscars due to some resurfaced homophobic jokes. Here’s who else you won’t see on Ellen’s show anytime soon:
Caitlyn Jenner: Ellen reportedly banned Jenner after the release of her tell-all memoir “The Secrets of My Life.” In the book, Jenner claimed Ellen “alienated” her from the LGBTQ community after her appearance on the show in 2017, when Jenner said she still wasn’t “for” gay marriage. Later in the book, Jenner said she had come to accept it.
Vince Vaughn: Vaugh was reportedly banned after coming on her show to promote his 2011 comedy “The Dilemma.” In the trailer, his character said, “electric cars are gay – I mean, not homosexual, but my-parents-are-chaperoning-the-dance gay.” After a few years, the two stars apparently made up and are on good terms – he’s even appeared on her show a few times.
We told you before that Kathy Griffin opened up about her longtime beef with Ellen – the comedienne claims she’s banned, but Ellen already shot back years ago saying, “first you have to be on the show to be banned.”
Kim Burrell: The gospel singer was supposed to appear on Ellen’s show with Pharrell to promote their song together. But, Burrell was banned after apparently making homophobic comments during a Facebook Live. Ellen explained what happened on the show, and at the time Pharrell echoed what Ellen has said recently about her friendship with George W. Bush, that people should “love each other” despite their beliefs.
Sherri Shepherd: Despite holding a record number of 23 appearances on Ellen’s show, and Ellen “championing” for her to co-host “The View,” an insider tells Page Six Shepherd is banned from appearing anymore ever since she started speaking out against gay marriage.
Jason Momoa Knows Anything Is Possible - Jason Momoa knows for a fact that dreams come true. His wife, Lisa Bonet, was his childhood crush. Of course, he didn’t tell her that until their children were born. “I didn’t let her know I was a stalker,” he joked. Marrying the love of his life has given the “Aquaman” star self-confidence in his acting career. “If someone says something isn’t possible, I’m like, ‘Listen here. I married Lisa Bonet. Anything is [freaking] possible.’” Jason started dating Lisa in 2005, and got married in October 2017. Esquire’s November cover boy is currently filming “See” for Apple TV +.
Police Confirm Wife And Son Of Actor Ron Ely Are Dead - The wife and son of 81-year-old TV actor Ron Ely [[ EE-lee ]]are confirmed dead – and police say it was after Ely’s son, Cameron Ely, attacked his mother. As we told you yesterday, the incident happened Tuesday night at the Santa Barbara home of 1960's "Tarzan" actor Ely. While details were scarce at first, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's department confirms that 62-year-old Valerie Lundeen [[lun-DEAN]] died from stab wounds and that 30-year-old Cameron was shot and killed by deputies responding to the scene. According to reports, Cameron even tried to pin the blame on his father – during a 9-1-1 call he apparently made. Apparently, the evidence on scene didn’t support that. Later, deputies say Cameron “posed a threat,” which prompted four deputies to fire “their service weapons at the suspect, fatally wounding him.” Autopsies are pending. Ron and Valerie were married in 1984, and besides son Cameron, shared two daughters, Kirsten and Kaitland – both 32.

to the iconic diva.

Apparently he got into their Cadillac and she slammed her door when she got in. When reached for comment, Judd said, “That was just the fight at Katsuya.

Report: Ann Curry Could Destroy Matt Lauer - Will Ann Curry come forward and spill the beans on Matt Lauer? Sources say that if she does, it will destroy him. It’s no secret that there’s no love lost between them. In fact, it’s been rumored that Matt was behind Ann’s 2012 departure from “Today.” While she’s kept mum in the wake of the various sexual allegations that have come up about him, an insider said, “She knows more than most about the man Matt really is.” Apparently a lot of people have confided in Curry over the years. She was one of the women who reported Lauer for sexual harassment on behalf of a colleague in 2012 – a fact that NBC execs are denying. We’ll keep an eye on this…ONE MORE THING! Another woman who has something to say about Matt is his soon-to-be ex-wife, Annette Roque. Sources say that the former model had wanted out of the marriage for a long time. In addition to his womanizing, he was also a control freak. “She stayed for Matt’s career — and, more important, for their kids,” an insider said.

"I needed to stop, definitely. It would have killed me.” Liam knows that there was no way the band, who went on a "break" four years ago, could have continued the way they had, sharing, “You're either going to end up a crazy child star who dies at whatever age, or you're going to live life and actually get on with it.” So, how did Liam cope with all that stardom?

You've got no control over your life. I lost complete control over everything." As for his current relationship with the fellas in One Direction, Liam admits he doesn’t really have one.

We don't really have a job together anymore.” He notes, “With someone like Harry (Styles), for example, I don't have very much in common with the boy. I can go have a drink with him. Fine, whatever. We just don't really have much in common."

“Lion King” Not Up For Animated Feature Oscar - The Academy has unveiled the 32 movies competing in the Best Animated Feature category at the upcoming 92nd Academy Awards, and Disney’s new adaptation of “The Lion King” isn’t on the list. Ever since the movie hit theaters and dominated the box office, there’s been an ongoing debate on how to define it.

But, “Lion King” is still expected to compete in the Best Visual Effects category.
