Debbie Reynolds and Elizabeth Taylor share a complicated history.
The actresses first met as classmates in the early 1950s. “I went to MGM when I was around 17, and Liz was there too, but she was already a star,” Debbie told People in 2015. “We went to school together on the lot, when she was in between films. I was just a beginner, and she and I were not in any manner alike, but we got along very well because I was in awe of going to school with Elizabeth Taylor. And if anyone said they weren’t, … read more
Hollywood is keeping Billie Lourd in its thoughts and prayers.
The Scream Queens actress lost her 60-year-old mother, Carrie Fisher, Tuesday, and her 84-year-old grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, Wednesday. “Carrie’s daughter is 24 years old. To have to lose the girls, it’s just horrible,” her uncle, Todd Fisher, told E! News. “She’s got their genes, but you can’t even imagine. I can’t imagine being 24 and having to do this—and I’m 59.”
Billie’s bond with Debbie was apparent when she appeared on NBC’s … read more
Jenna and Josh Buehler were packing for their honeymoon in March 2015, when the Atlanta-based athletic trainer noticed her husband seemed off. “He lost his keys a couple of times and then his wallet,” Jenna, 31, tells Us Weekly.

No more Mr. Nice POTUS!
Barack Obama has finally responded to evidence that Russia interfered with the presidential election with the intent to get Donald Trump in the White House — and he’s not taking their punishment lightly.
On Thursday, the Obama administration expelled 35 Russian diplomats and imposed sanctions on Russia’s two leading intelligence services — but that’s not all. The administration also sanctioned four top officers of a military intelligence unit (known as the GRU) the White … read more
Prince Harry was the “good son” this year. He did the full royal Christmas at Sandringham, including a church stroll and spending time with his extended family. Harry is especially close to his cousin Zara Tindall, and I suspect he probably spent a lot of time trying to cheer her up. Plus, Harry actually gets along with his dad, and I’m sure Charles enjoyed having Harry there. Harry also participated in the annual pheasant hunt on the day after Christmas, which is organized by his grandfather. … read more
In February 2016, we learned – quite suddenly – that Benjamin Millepied had left his position as dance director of the Opera de Paris. While it’s true that all of us blogging gossip-mongers normally don’t follow the comings and goings of the ballet world, Millepied’s exit was international news for several reasons. The biggest reason is that he’s married to Natalie Portman, and she had made such a big deal about moving to France with Benjamin and how the French were so much better than … read more

According to Mother Jones, the former officer — who now works with a U.S. firm that gathers information on Russia for corporate clients — was assigned the task of researching Trump’s dealings in the nation-state and elsewhere. The probe … read more
Zendaya covers the new issue of Allure. The photoshoot is really nice, although it’s pretty much a typical “young Hollywood in LA” vibe. Still, maybe it’s good to see a young African-American woman in that kind of editorial, the kind they would usually do with someone like Kate Hudson or Bella Thorne. As for the interview, Zendaya was given a lot of space to talk about cultural appropriation, her plans for future domination, and a lot more. Here’s something I learned about her: she’s … read more

The actors co-starred in 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Boyega, a lifelong Star Wars fan, often asked Fisher for advice in between takes. “She is hilarious,” he told Yahoo!’s Katie Couric last year. “One thing she did say to me was, ‘You’re going to have stalkers—guaranteed.’ I’m … read more

A Radio City Rockette opened up about the pressure to perform at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration in a new interview Tuesday, December 27.

Then there’s the percentage that said yes, for whatever reason — … read more
