Zayn Malik & Gigi Hadid Welcome Daughter - Congratulations are in order for Zayn Malik and girlfriend Gigi Hadid. Zayn made the announcement via social media - with Gigi also confirming the bouncing babe's arrival last weekend. "Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful," Zayn shared next to a picure holding his baby's hand. "To try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task." He adds, "The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together x." So far they haven't revealed the name of their daughter-ONE MORE THING! Zayn is getting ready to release new music. He teased a new song “Better” on social media, and it’s expected to drop Friday
Barbie Relaunches Yara Shahidi Vote Doll - If you didn’t get your Yara Shahidi Barbie doll, you are in luck. Mattel announced that they’d be relaunching it in honor of the 2020 election. To review, Mattel released their “Sheroes” collection last year to celebrate their 60th anniversary. This time, the collectable doll will encourage young people to learn more about the voting process and cast a ballot if they are able. The Yara Shahidi election doll is dressed in a grey pinstripe suit and the same Tory Burch “Vote” t-shirt she wore to the Eighteen X 18 Presents WeVoteNext Summit in September 2018. And in true Barbie fashion, no detail was left unattended — the collector’s item has a QR code that links to the voter registration resource WeVoteNext on the package and comes complete with an “I Voted” sticker on her black leather backpack.
Are Meghan & Harry Ready for Baby #2? - It seems that Meghan and Harry are finally settling in stateside and could be ready to add another member to the family. Reports say that Meghan is ready to have baby #2 with Harry. She gave birth to their first son Archie fifteen months ago and are reportedly settled in to their new $14.65 million home in the Montecito enclave of Santa Barbara, California. ONE MORE THING!: Meghan and Harry appear ready to travel back to Harry's home in England around Christmas time. The pandemic has certainly put any travel plans on hold this year but there is much tradition that comes with the holiday season with Harry and his family and the couple appears ready to head back that way over the next few months.
Gwyneth Paltrow's Secret To Marriage Success: Meditate Together - Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband Brad Falchuk are celebrating their second anniversary as the couple married in 2018 after dating for four years. She opened up in a recent interview with People about some of her wellness secrets and the key to her successful marriage. Gwyneth and Brad are very big into meditation. She says that she wakes up every morning and spends 20 minutes alongside Brad meditating. He just learned transcendental meditation and it really is great being able to spend those first minutes of the day together meditating.
Is Emma Stone Married....And Pregnant? - It looks like congratulations are in order for Emma Stone. If the reports are true, she and Dave McCary tied the knot. They were spotted earlier this week wearing matching gold bands, and a source confirmed the news. They were one of the many couples who put off their wedding amid the coronavirus crisis. But that’s not all. It looks like Emma might be pregnant. She was spotted wearing a pair of baggy overalls. Either she’s carrying quarantine weight…or a baby. At this point, neither Emma nor Dave has commented on the marriage or the baby. We’ll keep you posted…
Kristen Cavallai Speaks Out on Jay Cutler Divorce - Kristin Cavallari is finally opening up about her divorce from Jay Cutler. When they decided to separate in April after seven years of marriage, it seemingly came out of the blue. Not so, she said. “It didn’t happen overnight,” she noted. “We tried really, really hard for years and years. It was the hardest decision I've ever made.” “I always thought it was interesting when people would refer to us as ‘couple goals,’” the reality star said. “I was like, ‘If you guys only knew.’” While producers of “Very Cavallari” saw stuff, they didn’t put in in the show, which is good because she didn’t want their children to see it. After some initial legal wrangling, Kristin and Jay have settled into a solid co-parenting routine. “I still care so much about him and talk to him almost every day,” she says. “We have three kids together. He's going to be in my life forever.”
Kim Cattrall Has No Regrets for Slamming SJP - Kim Cattrall may have regrets, but her relationship – or lack thereof – with Sarah Jessica Parker isn’t one of them. When she was asked where she and her former “Sex and The City” co-star stood, she said, “Everything is on Google. So, I encourage you to Google it about anything that I’ve said,” Cattrall explained. “I feel that that was then, and when I look at what’s going on around me, I just don’t have any regrets.” The rift, which played out publicly when SJP offered Kim social media condolences when her brother died in February 2018, is a major reason that she decided not to return for a third “Sex and The City” film. So who could replace Kim as Samantha if the powers-that-be decide to go ahead with another sequel? Cynthia Nixon thinks Sharon Stone would be a good choice. In case you missed it, she recently told Andy Cohen, “I think Sharon would be of course totally amazing…I think Sharon would totally make it her own." Another possibility would be a woman of color. While Sharon is totally down to take the role, she, too, thinks a woman of color would be good. Since there aren’t any plans for the film now, we’ll just have to see…
JoJo Siwa Reacts To Being On Time's Most Influential People List: JoJo Siwa made Time magazine’s Top 100 list of the Most Influential People of 2020 and she’s taken to Instagram to call it “the biggest honor” she’s ever received. She went on to thank her fans and everyone behind the scenes for “letting [her] live out [her] dream” and that celebrities like Lada Gaga, Gwen Stefani, Miley Cyrus, and Nick Canon inspire her. Kim Kardashian wrote the official tribute to Siwa and called her the “nicest human ever.”
Content Moderator Sues YouTube For Exposer to Child Assault and Animal Torture: A class-action suit just got filed against YouTube by a former moderator claiming that they’ve developed symptoms of PTSD from what they were forced to watch on the platform. The ex-employee says they were exposed to “thousands of graphic and objectionable videos,” including beheadings, school shootings, and over unspeakably graphic content. On top of all that they claim YouTube failed to follow workplace safety standards and had an “aggressive campaign” to silence any whistleblowers. The suit is asking for damages for exposing employees to abnormally dangerous activity.
Tyra Banks Isn’t Engaged to Boyfriend Louis Bélanger-Martin: Tyra Banks is shutting down rumors that she’s engaged to her boyfriend, Louis Bélanger-Martin. Although she was spotted wearing a diamond ring on that finger, she says it’s not what you think. “The ring is a crab. It’s shaped like a crab,” Tyra explained. And apparently it’s not even a diamond. It’s an opal. She finds it “funny” and “annoying” how the media thought that it was an engagement ring. While the “Dancing with the Stars” host isn’t engaged, her relationship is still going strong.
Mike Tyson Is Voting For The First Time: Mike Tyson has never voted before, but he’s ready to cast his first ballot this year. Apparently the boxing legend – who was sentenced to six years in prison after being convicted on one count of rape and two counts of deviant sexual conduct in 1992 – thought he couldn’t vote. Fortunately for him, Nevada – where he lives – just signed a new law that restores voting rights for convicted felons.
Weirdo Arrested After Trespassing On Joe Manganiello & Sofia Vergara's Property: When you decide to drop in on Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello, you better have your story straight.

Zandy and Tavior, a football player and musician, announced their engagement in July.
Mariah Carey Sits Down With Oprah Winfrey - Mariah Carey, whose memoir “The Meaning Of Mariah” drops Tuesday, appears on the latest episode of Oprah Winfrey’s Apple TV+ series “The Oprah Conversation,” and opens up about a variety of subjects. Among them:
On the subject of her twins Monroe and Moroccan, she says, “Often, when you have had such trauma in your own life, you get to make up for the childhood you didn’t have through your own children,” adding they "help to heal me every day." She adds, "Every time we have a moment that feels real and authentic and genuine, it's them loving me unconditionally,"
She does note that before her kids “the only ones that I felt I got unconditional love from” were her “died hard fans.”
She also talks about her relationship with Derek Jeter, sharing that it “was a catalyst” that helped her get out of her marriage to Tommy Mottola, “because I believed there was somebody else.” She explains that she didn’t consider Jeter “the love of my life,” although at the time she didn’t think she’d meet another person who wouldn’t make her feel like they were “superior” to her.
She also says Derek’s family helped her see a “healthy” relationship in a family that resembled hers. "His family was a healthy family and they changed by viewpoint that, 'Oh, it's because of the biracial situation that my family is so screwed up,” she says. "It was healthy for me to see a functional family that basically kind of looked like mine, but didn't feel like mine.”
On whether she was scared to include certain things in her new book she notes, "Yes, but it's not because I was worried about what they would think," explaining, "It's because I never would have spoken a word about anybody in my life -- and I try to be very fair -- but people have drawn first blood with me, historically." She says fame has made her a "target" and "vulnerable," adding, "I wouldn't have gone here if things hadn't been done to me, if I hadn't been dragged by certain people and treated as an ATM machine with a wig on."
Mariah Carey’s “The Oprah Conversations” premieres today.
Jessie J Opening Up About Channing Tatum Relationship In Song? - Jessie J previewed a new song during a recent Instagram Live session, where she appears to be singing about her former relationship with Channing Tatum. “I wrote this song about when you first meet someone and you want to steam ahead,” she said of the tune “Simply Be In Love.” “Sometimes running can ruin a foundation that a relationship needs, which is to just be chill, stay still and enjoy the moment.” The track seems to suggest they may have jumped into a relationship to quickly. “Take it slow, baby steps, so we don’t ruin what comes next / Just be still, just stay calm, so we’re not rushing what we are,” she sings. “Pressure off, just have fun, it’s not a race, no need to run / If it’s for ever, let’s just simply be in love.”
Camila Cabello Tells Us How J. Balvin Helped Her Feel Less Alone - Camila Cabello wrote a profile on J. Balvin for “Time” magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020 issue, and shared how his openness about mental health made her feel better.
"During a period of intense anxiety, I saw his posts on Instagram talking about his struggle with anxiety and mental health,” she writes, “and I remember bursting out crying because I no longer felt alone." She adds she was “amazed” that he was “vulnerable and brave enough to share that with the world.” Finally, she notes, “What I truly admire and love the most about José is that he is just himself,” adding, “He’s himself to the world, he’s himself to his friends and his peers, and he’s got the kind of heart that makes him a person everyone is rooting for."

“The Masked Singer” – Premiere Recap - Fox’s hit celebrity singing competition “The Masked Singer” made its triumphant return last night. All-star judges Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, Jenny McCarthy, and Robin Thicke are back, and so is host Nick Cannon… who revealed they’d be competing for their own trophy this time around. That’s right – there are changes this season besides social distancing. While “Masked Singer” contestants will be singing for that Golden Mask trophy as usual, a Golden Ear trophy will go to the judge who has the most correct guesses at their secret identities. Here’s what went down last night: We were introduced to Groups A: The Sun, Giraffe, Popcorn, Dragon and Snow Owls. Between them, the stars have 46 GRAMMY nods, three world records, and the group includes an Olympic gold medalist as well as an Oscar nominee. Groups B and C will make their debut later. After getting to know Group A, it was time for the first masked celeb of the season to be eliminated. Unfortunately, it was Dragon’s last flight, so the judges entered their final guesses… and Nicole and Robin turned out to be right, Dragon was none other than Busta Rhymes! That’s it for the premiere episode of “The Masked Singer” season four – but we still have to meet Groups B and C. “The Masked Singer” airs on Wednesday nights at 8pm on FOX.
Teddi Mellencamp Confirms Exit, "RHOBH" Stars React - As you likely know, Teddi Mellencamp is officially “out” at “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” her co-stars are starting to react. Earlier this week, Mellencamp took to her Instagram to confirm the reports. “I recently found out that my contract as a housewife is not being renewed,” she explained. “Of course I could give you the standard response of: 'Oh we both came to the decision that it would be best.' I'm not going to do that.” As for reactions? Former “Beverly Hills” castmate Lisa Vanderpump threw shade during a podcast, while Mellencamp’s 'Beverly Hills' bestie Kyle Richards took a more poignant tack posting a tribute and noting in part, “I am so grateful for #RHOBH for bringing you into my life.” And it’s that friendship that ‘housewives’ of other franchises say they’ll miss. Among them? Jill Zarin, Melissa Gorga and Gretchen Rossi. No word from other current RHOBH castmates at press time. Fans on the other hand, have been celebrating the exit in the Twitterverse.
RHOC's Kelly Dodd Gets Her Marriage License: Real Housewives of Orange County's Kelly Dodd and her fiancé, Rick Leventhal, took a major step toward their wedding day as they picked up their marriage license.

Turns out the accident happened while he was spending "quality time" with his family at home, which is equipped with a bowling alley. "There was a malfunction with the bowling pinsetter, a common fix in the past, but it turned into a terrible accident," his representatives said. His hand ended up getting impaled by a metal rod and his two sons had to use a reciprocating saw to cut him loose. He's already had two surgeries and is facing an uphill battle according to his reps. He is recovering at home after being released from the hospital on Wednesday.

Evel Knievel's Estate Sues Disney Over "Toy Story 4" - Disney and others behind the wildly popular "Toy Story 4" just got slapped with a lawsuit from the estate of legendary stuntman Evel Knievel. K&K Promotions, a company that claims rights to Knievel's image and likeness, is suing Disney, Pixar, and others for their liberal use of Knievel’s persona in the beloved family film. The lawsuit refers to the daredevil character Duke Caboom in the movie. “Toy Story” creators weren’t exactly trying to hide the similarities between Caboom, voiced by Keanu Reeves, and Evel Knievel. Kelly Knievel, son, and spokesperson for K&K said: “Evel Knievel did not thrill millions around the world, break his bones and spill his blood just so Disney could make a bunch of money. They allege that producers did not seek permission or approval to base their character on Knievel. They also point out that the toy depicted in the film, atop a wind-up motorcycle, is a near replica of the original Evel Knievel toy, first produced in 1973 and still sold today.
Disney Delays More Film Releases - If you were looking forward to seeing “Black Widow,” “West Side Story,” and “Death on the Nile” in theaters, you’re going to have to wait a little longer. Disney announced that they’d be pushing those releases back by several months. “Black Widow” will open May 7th, 2021, “West Side Story” hits theaters December 10th, 2021, and “Death on the Nile” will drop on December 18th of this year. With “Black Widow” moving its release date, that pushes “Eternals’” release date back to November 5th, 2021. One of its stars, Kumail Nanjiani, endorsed the move. “Marvel made the right and responsible decision. Nothing is more important than health & lives,” he tweeted. “I can’t tell [people] to go to a movie theater until I feel safe going to one.”
Vanessa Bryant Sues LA County Sheriff’s Office Over Leaked Crash Photos - Vanessa Bryant is suing the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and Sheriff Alex Villanueva for a photo leak of the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant, their daughter Gianna, and seven others in January. When Vanessa found out about the photo leak from a “Los Angeles Times” article, she asked for information from the department about its investigation and details on what it had done to ensure all the photos of the crash site were secured. A month later, an attorney for the sheriff’s department told her that the department had no legal obligation to respond to her questions and would not do so. The civil suit, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court last week, seeks undisclosed damages for civil rights violations, negligence, emotional distress, and violation of privacy.
ONE MORE THING! Vanessa also slammed her mother for going public with accusations that she’d been put out of her home. As we told you, Sofia Laine claimed that her daughter had kicked her out of her home and taken her car after her NBA legend son-in-law was killed. Vanessa says that’s not the case. “My husband and daughter passed away unexpectedly, and yet my mother had the audacity to do a television interview speaking negatively of me while shedding tears for a car and a house that were not in her name,” said in a statement. “She has removed all her diamond jewelry, emptied the apartment I provided, and put away the furniture to make it look like she doesn’t have my support. My husband and I have supported her financially for the past 20 years, and continue to do so, in addition to her monthly alimony.”
