Pippa Middleton Marries James Matthews. It's official -- Pippa Middleton is a married lady. Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton's younger sister said "I do" to fiance James Matthews Saturday during an intimate ceremony at St. Mark's Church in Englefield, England, just miles away from where she and her royal sibling grew up. "The church bells at St. Marks's Church began to peal. They are man and wife!" a source confirmed to E! News. After a roughly 45-minute ceremony, the bride and groom made their first public debut as husband and wife when they stepped outside of the church just as the rain stopped. The duo were smiling from ear to ear and ultimately shared a smooch in front of the excited crowd. As was previously announced, Pippa's nephew, 3-year-old Prince George, served as a page boy while her niece, 2-year-old Princess Charlotte, was among the bridesmaids. Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry were also in attendance. Ever the helpful sister, Kate helped get the youngest members of the bridal party back into the vintage fleet of cars while fellow guests made their way back to Englefield House for a post-wedding reception. The socialite and her hedge fund manager husband first started dating in 2012, but briefly broke up before rekindling their romance again in 2015. By the summer of 2016, the two were engaged. "James has always been on the scene," a source previously shared with E! News. "He is super charismatic and charming, good looking and always held a torch for Pippa. They have always had insane chemistry, but Pippa was always in a relationship." "Mike and Carole Middleton are very happy," a friend of the couple revealed to the Daily Mail. "They like James and they are sure he will make Pippa very happy." A royal round of applause for the new Mr. and Mrs. Matthews! (Eonline)

Kelly Rohrbach Is Dating Walmart Heir Steuart Walton. Kelly Rohrbach has a new boo in her life! E! News can exclusively confirm the blonde Baywatch star and model is dating Walmart heir Steuart Walton. An insider tells us the 26-year-old has been dating the billionaire for "four or five months," and he even takes her for "flying lessons on his personal plane." In fact, they were first photographed together during a hike in Los Angeles in November, smiling and holding hands while enjoying the outdoors. As you may recall, Rohrbach famously dated Leonardo DiCaprio in 2015 for several months as well. In June of that year, the actor and the model first sparked romance rumors when they were spotted getting cozy at a CFDA Fashion Awards after-party. Speculation was confirmed a couple weeks later as they were spotted kissing out in New York City while riding around on CitiBikes. However, the couple split up seven months later, just before DiCaprio's big awards season in January 2016. "This is a really busy time for both of them," a source told us at the time. "They are both just so busy that it was hard to make a relationship work." Meanwhile, other than spending time with her man, Rohrbach has been busy promoting her upcoming film, Baywatch, which will be released next week. It's an exceptionally exciting time as Rohrbach has revealed that hopping in that sexy, red swimsuit was a role she had dreamed of since she was a little girl. "It was mine and my sisters' show," Rohrbach told Harper's Bazaar after landing the role last year. "We were all pretty young, I was like 10 years old, and we'd wait for our parents to go out on Saturday nights because they thought it was too risque. So as soon as they were gone, we'd be in front of the TV, just sucking our thumbs with our blankies, watching babes like Pam Anderson run down the beach." Well, we can't wait to see her beach run when Baywatch is released on May 25. (Eonline)

Here's Proof That Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn's Romance May Date All the Way Back to October. We already know that Taylor Swift went to "great lengths" to keep her romance with Joe Alwyn under wraps...but could she have been successful for seven months?! According to a new revelation, yes. As you may recall, T.Swift enjoyed a private concert for Kings Of Leon on October 12, 2016, alongside he gal-pals Dakota Johnson, Cara Delevingne, Lorde, Zoë Kravitz, Suki Waterhouse, Lily Donaldson and Martha Hunt. After the show, they all headed to the Bowery Hotel for a party. Well, one fan website pointed out that Alwyn happened to be caught on camera entering that same hotel on the very same night. In fact, he walked in with Hunt and her boyfriend! Obviously, this could have just been a friendly encounter among mutual friends, but a lot of people are speculating Swift and Alwyn may have initiated their romance during that fateful October evening. Not to mention, we've already learned she's been keeping their relationship a secret for quite some time. "Taylor went to great lengths to keep their relationship private and out of the spotlight while [she and Alwyn] have been getting to know one another," an insider recently told us. "She has made several trips to see him, but always flies in and out on a private jet with lots of security and has been flying into very small and remote airports." The source added, "If she was seen in England, she made sure everyone thought it was a work trip. Taylor and Joe have really tried to be on lockdown and have spent most of their time together in private locations where they could get to know each other without the pressure of a public relationship and people making judgment calls." Our insider even noted this traveling has gone on for several months. "She has been going back and forth between Nashville and the U.K. for the last few months while she has been recording her album," the source said. "She is crazy about Joe and really excited about their relationship." What do you all think? (Eonline)

Aisha Tyler's marriage to Jeff Tietjens is officially over, but she'll still be sending him checks for quite a while. "The Talk" host and "Archer" actress has been ordered to pay her ex-husband $31,250 per month in spousal support over the next 4 years, plus an additional $500k. Do the math ... that's $2 mil for Jeff. The 2 will split everything else. Tietjens gets half the money they made from selling their house. He gets the 2012 Lexus and she gets the 2013 Tesla. Aisha also keeps her companies -- BTDO Media and Hot Machine. We broke the story ... Jeff filed for divorce last year after the couple separated in January 2015. They wed in 1992. (TMZ)

Steve Harvey's Ex-Wife Sues Him for $60 Million Dollars; Alleges Torture, Child Endangerment And More. Steve Harvey is being sued by his second ex-wife Mary Shackelford, E! News has learned, for upwards of $60 million dollars. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the comedian's ex claims that her life has never been the same following their divorce in 2005. Mary alleges that she's been suicidal and has resorted to self-medicate in an effort to handle the aftermath of their highly publicized (and highly contentious) divorce battle. She is suing Steve for a lengthy list of things, including child endangerment, torture, conspiracy against rights, intentional infliction of emotional distress, breach of contract and even murder. It's not clear, however, what she is specifically referring to with the murder allegations. The outlet is also reporting that the lawsuit was filed in a court of law by Mary's "civil rights activist" and not an attorney. Back in April, Mary posted a series of YouTube videos alleging that she never received her divorce settlement after the two split. "The judge said our divorce would be contingent upon the division of community assets but that never happened," she explained. "Steve Harvey owes me $50 million and I want him arrested for violating my civil rights. I want him charged with a constitutional rights violation, falsifying documents, perjury, contempt of court, embezzlement, extortion and collusion. For what he's done to me, I want to see Steve Harvey behind bars." Steve and Mary were married from 1996 to 2005. Steve then married Marjorie Bridges-Woods in 2007. The two have been together ever since. (Eonline)

Robin Thicke and his brother, Brennan, are going after Alan Thicke's widow, Tanya, because she won't let them start a pot farm on their deceased dad's property ... so claims Tanya Callau. As we reported, Robin and Brennan filed legal docs in Alan's probate case, claiming Tanya threatened to go to the tabloids and trash them if they didn't give her what she wanted from Alan's estate. But Tanya's lawyer, Adam Streisand, tells TMZ, the sons are making up false claims to smear her, because she won't let them convert the family ranch into a massive marijuana operation. The way Alan left things is a little confusing. There's a prenup and Alan's sons claim Tanya wants to challenge it, but her lawyer is calling BS and says she's fine with the prenup ... which gives her a 25% interest in the ranch. Alan also created a trust which allows Tanya to live out her life on the property. Tanya says the boys are dishonoring their dad, who would have disapproved of them going into the pot biz on his property which sits on 11 acres near Santa Barbara. Tanya says the boys are also painting her as a gold digger, which hurts because she was with Alan for 17 years and married for 11. We reached out to Robin's rep ... so far no word back. (TMZ)

Justin Theroux is in a nasty war with a neighbor who's threatened to cut the actor's water and electricity ... according to a new lawsuit. Justin and Jennifer Aniston are making renovations to their Greenwich Village co-op, and he says that's not sitting well with the guy who lives downstairs from them. In the suit, Justin says the neighbor's been bitching that the sound-proofing materials going in Theroux's pad aren't good enough. He's demanding Justin spend an extra $25-30k to upgrade. Justin says when he refused to give in, the neighbor launched a nasty campaign ... including threats to cut the water and electricity lines that run to Justin's roof deck, harassing construction workers at the home and perhaps worst of all ... threatening to prune Justin's ivy. Them's fighting words in the Village! Theroux says the guy even threatened to set off a PR nightmare when he emailed ... any legal action would be "opening the door to a broad range of allegations that would become publicly available, and which would not please Justin or his wife or their respective publicists." Justin is suing for at least $350k plus punitive damages. (TMZ)

Chris Cornell's Wife Vicky Believes His Suicide Was Accidental. Chris Cornell's widow is speaking out one day after his death. Early Thursday morning, the 52-year-old Soundgarden singer was found unresponsive with a band around his neck inside his bathroom at the MGM Grand Hotel in Detroit. The grunge rocker was pronounced dead on the scene. Later that afternoon, after an initial autopsy had been completed, the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office announced his cause of death "has been determined as suicide by hanging. A full autopsy report has not yet been completed." Kirk Pasich, an attorney for the Cornell family, said Friday they are disturbed by implications that Chris knowingly and intentionally took his life. "Without the results of toxicology tests, we do not know what was going on with Chris -- or if any substances contributed to his demise. Chris, a recovering addict, had a prescription for Ativan and may have taken more Ativan than recommended dosages," Pasich said. The family believes that if Chris took his life, he did not know what he was doing, and that drugs or other substances may have affected his actions." Chris also left behind three kids, ages 16, 12 and 11. In a statement, his wife Vicky Cornell spoke of what a devoted family man the Audioslave singer was. "Chris's death is a loss that escapes words and has created an emptiness in my heart that will never be filled. As everyone who knew him commented, Chris was a devoted father and husband. He was my best friend. His world revolved around his family first and of course, his music, second," Vicky said. "He flew home for Mother's Day to spend time with our family. He flew out mid-day Wednesday, the day of the show, after spending time with the children." Before his final show, she said, "We discussed plans for a vacation over Memorial Day and other things we wanted to do. When we spoke after the show, I noticed he was slurring his words; he was different. When he told me he may have taken an extra Ativan or two, I contacted security and asked that they check on him." Police confirmed to E! News Thursday that after Vicky was unable to reach Chris, she called someone in Detroit, who forced open the door and found him. Funeral arrangements for Chris have not been announced. Soundgarden was set to headline the "Rock on the Range" festival at MAPFRE Stadium Friday; it's unclear if the tour will proceed. "What happened is inexplicable and I am hopeful that further medical reports will provide additional details," Chris' widow told E! News in a statement. "I know that he loved our children and he would not hurt them by intentionally taking his own life. The outpouring of love and support from his fans, friends and family means so much more to us than anyone can know." "Thank you for that," Vicky added, "and for understanding how difficult this is for us." (Eonline)

THE OTHER STUFF . . .

Bill Pullman waited 21 long years to do it, but he finally got the right stage ... and he delivered. The actor was the commencement speaker at Warren Wilson College in Asheville, NC Saturday, and gave the graduates a blast of nostalgia by opening with a line from of his famous "Independence Day" speech ... with a slight revision. Bill made a political wisecrack, too -- but it may have been an accident -- when he explained the glory of playing President Whitmore. Good stuff. As for why Pullman chose to speak at WWC ... his sons are alumni. (TMZ)

Here's What Kate Middleton Wore to Sister Pippa Middleton's Wedding. Pippa Middleton famously made a sartorial splash at her sister's wedding six years ago -- and it was Kate Middleton's turn to make her own fashion statement. While her younger sister said "I do" to James Matthews, the mother of two took in the Saturday ceremony from the pews along with her royal husband, Prince William. As the milestone occasion required, the 35-year-old donned her wedding best, opting for a blush v-neck frock with a tailored waist and puffed sleeves. The ensemble was the creation of British label Alexander McQueen. The Duchess of Cambridge accessorized with a matching fascinator adorned with a flower applique and a pair of Kiki McDonough special edition earrings priced at £7,500. Always elegant, the fashionista wore her hair pulled back into a classic chignon and completed the entire look with Gianvito Rossi suede nude pumps. Whether the brand choice was purposeful or a simple coincidence, Pippa famously garnered tons of attention at her sister's nuptials in 2011 thanks to a curve-hugging cream gown by McQueen. Of course, the label is one of the duchess' favorites as her own wedding gown was also by McQueen. Six years ago, then-27-year-old Pippa skyrocketed to immense fame thanks to the worldwide photos of her carrying her older sister's veil with her back to the cameras. "As I have found out, recognition has its upside, its downside and -- you may say -- its backside," she later joked at a London event. What do you think of Kate's look? (Eonline)

Pippa Middleton and James Matthews' Wedding Exit Was Right Out of a Modern Fairytale. As the cherry on top of a picture perfect wedding ceremony, Pippa Middleton and James Matthews made their grand exit in a fashion befitting of a modern fairytale. After officially becoming Mr. and Mrs. at St. Mark's Church, the duo departed from the Englefield House property in a vintage green Jaguar E-type convertible. Excited onlookers cheered and applauded the pair as they smiled from ear to ear and waved on their way by with Matthews behind the wheel. While there was rain earlier in the day, the skies fortunately cleared just in time for the new husband and wife to drive off into the sun. Following the ceremony, the duo are set to meet upwards of 300 guests at Pippa's family home in Bucklebury for their wedding reception. The party will be held in a glass enclosing that was set up on the 18-acre property and is expected to be just as classic and elegant as the wedding ceremony. E! News learned Lavender Green, the company the couple hired for their flowers, had plans to decorate pillars and the ceiling with blooms. "It's going to be magical," a local told E! News. "There will be floral arrangements from top to bottom, it's going to be magnificent." In addition to the spring decor, guests will also have access to luxury porta-bathrooms set up just for the occasion. While the couple gets to spend some quality time together on the drive to the party, they can revel in their seamless special day. As Pippa's uncle Gary Goldsmith kindly tweeted, "Brilliant couple who gave everyone time and attention." (Eonline)

Where Was Meghan Markle at Pippa Middleton's Wedding? Did Meghan Markle attend Pippa Middleton and James Matthews' wedding ceremony? The couple tied the knot at St. Mark's Church at a private estate in Englefield, Berkshire in England Saturday in front of family and friends. Harry was seen arriving via a private entrance, a source told E! News exclusively, and unlike the bride and groom and many of their other guests, he was not photographed there by the paparazzi who gathered outside. Meghan was not spotted. Another source had told E! News earlier in the week that they had planned to use the private entrance in advance, adding. "The other door is how guests who don't want to be on camera will enter the church." "Right now Harry and Meghan are leaning towards not wanting to attract extra attention, especially on a day that's not about them," the source said. "It takes the pressure off." Harry was later photographed at the wedding walking with his brother Prince William, who arrived at the wedding with wife and Pippa's sister Kate Middleton and their kids Prince George, who served as a page boy, and Princess Charlotte, who was a flower girl. Kensington Palace had confirmed Pippa and Harry's romance in November. The actress' attendance at the wedding signals how serious their relationship has become, as she has never been confirmed to have appeared at an event involving any of his family members before. In March, Megan and Harry attended his best friend's wedding in Jamaica. Over the past few months, the two have also since spent time together in Toronto, where she lives and films Suits, Norway and his native London. (Eonline)

Here's Where Meghan Markle Was During Pippa Middleton's Wedding. Meghan Markle may not have been at Pippa Middleton's wedding ceremony on Saturday, but she partied with the bride Saturday night at her lavish reception! While Prince Harry watched Middleton and financier James Matthews tie the knot in Englefield, his girlfriend was an hour-and-a-half away in London -- preparing for Saturday evening's festivities. Following the ceremony, a source told PEOPLE that Harry would travel back to London to pick Markle up for the wedding reception in Bucklebury. The royal was spotted driving after the post-church Englefield House party. Markle was seen in London on Friday before the ceremony. The fact that she will attend the wedding -- even if it's the post-church nighttime bash -- is yet another sign that the Suits actress and the prince, 32, are getting more and more serious. Myka Meier, founder and director of Beaumont Etiquette, tells PEOPLE that while there is no formal "no ring, no bring" rule, it isn't surprising that Markle didn't get an invite to the church wedding as Middleton would likely want to keep her actual wedding small. "I would not be surprised if Prince Harry was not given a plus one, as the wedding guest list would have most likely been made in fall of last year when Prince Harry's relationship with Meghan was not as public," Meier said. "I typically recommend if someone is married, engaged, considers themselves to have a serious significant other, or is traveling in for the wedding, they should receive a plus one." The fact that Pippa's brother, James Middleton, brought his longtime girlfriend, Donna Air, means she didn't opt for the "no ring, no bring" rule. Princess Eugenie also attended with her longtime boyfriend, Jack Brooksbank. If Markle had attended the ceremony, it would have been a major moment, as it would be the first time the two royal couples -- Will and Kate and Markle and Harry, would have been pictured together in public. The duo was recently snapped sharing a sweet kiss and embrace following Harry's charity polo match earlier this month -- marking the first public event they have officially attended as a pair. "Despite the distance, the media attention and everything else, there's a real ease to their relationship," a source recently told PEOPLE of the pair. "It just works. They are deeply happy."

Guests Reportedly Had to Use Secret Passwords to Get into Pippa Middleton's Wedding Reception. After Pippa Middleton and financier James Matthews said their "I dos" at St. Mark's Church in Englefield on Saturday morning, the newlyweds celebrated their marriage with a private reception at the Middleton family's home in nearby Buckleberry that evening. The 300 guests gathered at Bucklebury Village Hall, where they parked their cars and men were offered fresh shirts if they wanted to change from their ceremony attire, according to E! News. They were then driven to a $100,000 glass palace erected on Carole and Michael Middleston's 16-acre estate in a convoy, but not before each attendee had their photo ID checked and gave a password, which a source told the outlet was different for each guest. After being treated to an aerial performance by a Supermarine Spitfire, a British single-seat fighter used in World War II, friends and family of the couple gave speeches. According to E!, brother-of-the-groom (and best man) Spencer Matthews' speech turned into a sing-along to The Beatles. However, a source denies the report about the reception. Several royal family members, including Prince William, Princess Kate and Princess Eugenie, were all in attendance at the nuptials at St. Mark's Church in Englefield. In addition, Prince Harry brought girlfriend Meghan Markle to the reception. As PEOPLE previously reported, Harry wasn't planning on bringing Markle to the church ceremony earlier in the day, despite reports that she would be at the church. However, he was planning on bringing her to the larger (and more informal) post-church party at the Middleton family's home. A source told PEOPLE that Markle stayed in London (about an hour-and-a-half away from the ceremony in Englefield) during the church service and was going to be picked up by Harry after the morning service. Guests had several hours between the church service and the evening party, leaving plenty of time for Harry to pick up Markle. (People)

Royal Trouble! Prince George Sobs After Getting Scolded by Kate at Pippa Middleton's Wedding. There are usually a few tears at a wedding, and Pippa Middleton's nuptials to financier James Matthews on Saturday were no exception. Prince George, who served as a page boy for his aunt's big day, appeared to cry after the ceremony at St. Mark's Church in Englefield. According to reports, the 3-year-old royal was seen sobbing outside for a brief moment. Determined to ensure nothing dampened the mood of her sister's wedding day, Princess Kate was pictured giving her son a scolding. Photos showed Prince George pouting, seemingly embarrassed by the situation, but he perked up again soon after. A video of the bride and groom leaving the church appears to show Kate having a strong word with George after he wanders behind Pippa and can be seen playing with her dress as she makes her big exit. All eyes were on Prince George and 2-year-old Princess Charlotte, who served as a bridesmaid at the royal affair. Proud parents Prince William and Kate watched as their royal toddlers, who were dressed in adorable outfits by Pepa and Co., prepared to make their way down the aisle. After the ceremony, wedding guests told reporters that the children in the bridal party were "very" well-behaved during the ceremony. Unfortunately for George, it looks like he got into a bit of mischief afterwards! Charlotte wore an ivory silk dress with a frilled collar, a nude pink sash and matching trim across the sleeves and neckline with hand-embroidered detailing. The bodice featured a vintage style lace panel and the dress carried a net petticoat with lace trim underneath. She also wore ivory opaque tights, beige soft leather shoes and a floral headband. George wore an ivory double-breasted silk pleated shirt with Peter Pan collar and coordinating trim detail paired with knickerbockers in pale olive Vienne silk and a matching cummerbund. George adorably channeled dad William, who was a page boy in his uncle Prince Andrew's wedding to Sarah Ferguson in 1986. No doubt mom Kate passed along a few helpful tips to her 2-year-old daughter before the big day. She and Pippa made an adorable pair of bridesmaids as little girls in their uncle wedding ceremony in 1991. Pippa, 33, and Matthews, 41, became engaged in July 2016. The longtime couple has a "deep desire" to disappear from the spotlight in the longer term, a source told PEOPLE. Another source said they are looking forward to settling down and "having children and leading a quiet life." (Eonline)

Reese Witherspoon Visits Her Old College Dorm Room and Meets Student Living in It. Elle Woods has returned home! Well, not to Harvard. But Reese Witherspoon did recently visit her actual alma mater, Stanford University, as a guest speaker. She also visited her old dorm room and hung out with its current resident, a student named Caitlyn. "Surprise! While re-visiting @Stanford, I popped by my old dorm room.... and met its newest tenant, Caitlyn!" the Oscar-winning actress and Legally Blonde and Big Little Lies star wrote on Instagram Saturday, alongside a photo of her and the student inside the room. "She was so nice; she even welcomed me in! #LoveSurprises #Stanford #FearTheTree," Witherspoon said, referring to the college's unofficial mascot. The photo also shows another student in a dorm room opposite Caitlyn's, typing away at their computer, seemingly unaware of the actress' presence is standing several feet away. Witherspoon attended the university in the '90s as an English Literature major but never graduated, opting to concentrate on an acting career. Last week, she spoke before students at Stanford's Graduate School of Businesses, as part of its View From The Top speaker series. "You're the one responsible for your own path, so throw yourself at it," she said at the event. "Thank you @stanfordbusiness for having me yesterday," Witherspoon wrote on Instagram. "It was a honor to share my experiences and chat with all of you bright minds. Keep studying hard and dreaming big! #stanford." (Eonline)

Lena Dunham Cancels Lenny IRL Tour Due to Worsening of Endometriosis. Lena Dunham has canceled her Lenny IRL tour to focus on her health. The Girls star and creator was supposed to headline discussions with fans at several cities starting at the end of the month. Dunham wrote on her Lenny Letter website Friday that while her "traveling variety show" has been a "ray of sunshine" for her amid "these dark political days," her endometriosis has worsened and her body cannot bear the stress of touring. The actress had said in April she had undergone her fifth procedure to treat the disorder, a female reproductive disease in which abnormal tissue grows outside the uterus, which can cause infertility. Earlier this month, she left the 2017 Met Ball early and was hospitalized for complications from her most recent surgery. "My body, which I've worked through all kinds of pain for many years, just doesn't have what it takes to do this tour," Dunham wrote. "To be perfectly honest, I'm in the greatest amount of physical pain that I have ever experienced. After being told I was endometriosis-free after my last procedure, more disease was found in deeper spots that required immediate surgery and now physical therapy." "This disease is wily and unrelenting, and I'm really blessed to have a community, both online and IRL, who let me express how hard that is," she continued. "Inspired by you, I'm gonna say 'Eff you' to embarrassment and walk the walk of a woman who really takes care of herself. My goals have to be simplified for this moment: to write and to heal. Dunham said people who purchased tickets will be refunded. "We hope to be back when my uterus has taken a chill pill. (But not my spiritual uterus. She'll never chill. She's incapable of chill.)," she added. Dunham had last year canceled press appearances to promote Girls after suffering a "rough patch" of endometriosis. She later underwent surgery for a ruptured ovarian cyst. The formation of such cysts is a common complication of the disease. (Eonline)

Matthew Perry Reveals Which Friends Storyline He Nixed -- and What He Does With His Residuals. Matthew Perry may work in the world of pretend, but even this storyline was too strange for him to handle. While in Andy Cohen's hot seat Thursday night, the Friends star dished on one episode of the longtime show that almost happened -- had he not stepped in. "There was a storyline on Friends where Chandler went to a male strip joint because he really liked the sandwiches," the 47-year-old star recalled on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. However, Perry just wasn't buying it, so he called up and asked that they skip it. Hey Friends fans, remember this episode? That's right -- the actor prevailed and they dropped it. However, it was no loss for any of the stars, who enjoyed the success of the syndicated show for a whopping 10 years. "I'll never have a job like that ever again," Perry said with nostalgia. While the show may be over, the residuals still roll in. When asked about the residuals by a fan, Perry was a bit shy about saying anything. "I get a little something and I go, 'Hey, that's nice,'" he responded. "There's no real punch line for this." Always digging for the dirt, Cohen asked Perry during a round of Plead the Fifth whether or not he and his castmates ever broke the alleged Friends "no sex" clause. Perry said it remained intact to his knowledge -- "or I was really missing something." (Eonline)

Louis Vuitton Casting Director Responds to Size 4 Model Who Claims She Was Sent Home From Show for Being ''Too Big." Ulrikke Hoyer made waves this week after she revealed she was sent home from a recent Louis Vuitton cruise show in Kyoto for being "too big." The 20-year-old model took to her Instagram and Facebook to recount the "humiliating" experience, saying she arrived in Tokyo (after 23 hours of traveling) and measured at 91.5 cm or 36 in. around her waist, which is a size 4 in U.S. clothing. Upon being fitted for the show, she was told she was "too bloated" and "too big" for her ensemble. The casting director Ashley Brokaw's assistant, Alexia Cheval, then told her she needed to "drink only water for 24 hours." Despite following the guidelines, Hoyer was eventually sent home. Rather than being told herself, Hoyer's agent in France was notified via email, which The Business of Fashion obtained. Part of it read, "[Ulrikke] came yesterday in Tokyo to do her final fitting, and she doesn't fit the exact same dress anymore. She has a belly, her face is more puffy [sic] and the back of her dress is open and you can see it is tight." For Hoyer, it wasn't about being taken out of the show, but rather the way she was mistreated. "This is not about me being canceled from a show, I've tried that before (all girls on my level have) you win some and you loose [sic] some that's the game," she wrote. "But I cannot accept the 'normality' in the behavior of people like this. They find pleasure in power over young girls and will go to the extreme to force an eating disorder on you." Hoyer also told BoF, "I'm still a human and I need to be treated right...I know by saying my story and speaking out I'm risking it all, but I don't care. Maybe this was my last job, then that's it. I'm done with working for people that will treat me this way." Brokaw has since responded, telling BoF, "Honestly I think that it's a lot of misunderstanding. We were told before she came for her fitting that she was a 92cm hip. That was fine for everybody and we told the atelier to make whatever we needed to make for her. We said that we'd make her a look and that we want her in the show. She came to Paris, we made a fur coat to her measurements to her body and we confirmed her for the show." The casting director continued, "Two weeks later, in Tokyo, for whatever reason, she came in for her fitting and the coat didn't fit properly. Once we were in Tokyo we were very limited by what we could do. We didn't have the atelier to remake anything and we didn't have a lot of other options to try on her, although we did try some other things on her and nothing quite worked. So it was a situation that was devastating all round." Still, Brokaw promises no one would ever ask a model to starve themselves. "Nobody would ever tell anybody not to eat. It's just not true. We have girls who are travelling for the first time from far away and they land and they want to beat the jet lag, so they start drinking tonnes of coffee and become dehydrated...We did everything we could to make sure that everybody was healthy and rested as much as possible." She added, "What is anybody going to do with the girl who hasn't eaten in 24 hours? How is she going to walk on a runway?" After revealing that she and her family have been receiving death threats since Hoyer's posts made headlines, Brokaw said, "I've been in this business for over 20 years and I have never experienced anything like this. It's horrific." (Eonline)

Huma Abedin has finally filed to divorce Anthony Weiner ... and it appears his guilty plea for texting a 15-year-old girl was the last straw. Huma filed divorce docs in NYC, according to the NY Post. The news comes just hours after Weiner surrendered to the feds and struck a plea deal ... which will most likely have him doing serious prison time. Hillary Clinton's trusted aide first left Weiner back in August 2016. They separated after he was caught in his second sexting scandal. As she put it then, "After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband." That separation came in the middle of campaign season. The FBI's investigation into emails on Weiner's computer was announced days before the election -- and possibly impacted the results. (TMZ)

Chris Cornell's fans hoping to stay in the hotel room where the singer committed suicide are going to have to wait ... because the room is off-limits for now. We're told the MGM Grand Detroit has been inundated with calls about the room's availability. Kinda weird considering Chris only died there Wednesday night, after hanging himself in the bathroom. Cops have done their thing so the room is vacant, but the hotel doesn't plan on making it available in the foreseeable future and there's a chance it'll never be available again. A similar scenario went down with the room where Whitney Houston drowned in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton. It was eventually made available ... but all furnishings were replaced. (TMZ)

Kanye West is back in his hood, strolling through Calabasas after seeking musical inspiration on the highest mountaintop in Wyoming. Kanye breezed into his studio Saturday with a few buds, presumably to work on new music. TMZ broke the story ... Kanye's working on a new album and has gone to a Wyoming resort several times over the last month for some peace and quiet. The resort is super luxurious and he's spent more than a week each time ... all by his lonesome. (TMZ)

Katy Perry Reveals Meaning Behind "Swish Swish" Amid Rumors Song Is About Taylor Swift. Jimmy Fallon asked Katy Perry the million-dollar question on The Late Show Friday -- without naming names. "'Swish Swish' -- is that about anybody we know?" he asked, referring to her new song with Nicki Minaj. Many people have speculated the track about Taylor Swift, with whom the pop star is reportedly feuding. Swift has not commented about the song, although Orange Is the New Black star Ruby Rose, a member of her "squad" of pals, dragged Perry over it. "I think it's a great anthem for people to use whenever somebody's trying to hold you down or bully you," the singer told Fallon, raising her eyebrows. "That's kinda what this record is about, it's just like 360-degree liberation," she said, referring to her upcoming fifth studio album Witness. "[First single] "Chained to the Rhythm" was this political liberation, [second single] "Bon Appetit" was a sexual liberation and now, I think this is kind of, 'Swish' represents the liberation from all the negative that doesn't serve you." Many people think Swift's 2014 revenge anthem "Bad Blood" is about Perry. Swift told Rolling Stone that year that the track is about a female artist, who she did not name. "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not," she said. "She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'" Swift also told Rolling Stone that in 2013, the other singer "did something so horrible." "I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies,'" she said. "And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I'm surprisingly non-confrontational -- you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It's awkward, and I don't like it." A day after the article was published, Perry tweeted, "Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing..." Minaj has not commented on the meaning behind "Swish Swish." She and Swift got involved in short-lived feud in 2015. The rapper had vented online after it was revealed her "Anaconda" music video wasn't nominated for Video of the Year at the 2015 MTV VMAs. "If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year," she said. Taylor was nominated in the category for, yes, "Bad Blood." The video featured several members of her squad, including Victoria's Secret models. She took Minaj's tweet personally. "I've done nothing but love & support you," she tweeted at her. "It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot." Minaj responded and she had never said a word about her, adding, "I love u just as much. But u should speak on this." Perry weighed in, tweeting, "Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman..." Swift later apologized to Minaj and the two ended up performing together at the VMAs. (Eonline)

This is just awesome ... Harry Styles and Stevie Nicks serenaded 150 people Friday night at the best concert in L.A. ... hands down. Harry was performing at Troubadour in WeHo when Stevie jumped on stage and the 2 sang her monster hit, "Leather and Lace." But that wasn't the end. They sang "Landslide" from Fleetwood Mac and then Harry's new song, "Two Ghosts". And if you don't feel left out enough ... tickets were $20. (TMZ)

Lady Gaga's longtime friend, Sonja Durham, has died after a battle with stage IV cancer. Sonja's husband, Andre Dubois, posted the sad news Friday afternoon. He said she died "peacefully and beautifully" in their home. Gaga just posted a photo of Sonja and Andre on Thursday with the message ... "Watching one of my best friends in the world show unfathomable courage, strength, and positivity while battling cancer has really changed my life. Thank you Sonja for inspiring me and all of us everyday with your joy." Gaga's album 'Joanne' features a bonus track titled "Grigio Girls" ... which is about how she and her girlfriends would get together, pop open a bottle and cry for Sonja. She also dedicated an acoustic version of "Edge of Glory" to Sonja during her headlining gig at Coachella. RIP. (TMZ)

Ruby Rose Drags Katy Perry's New Music Through the Social Media Mud. Ruby Rose is not mincing words. While fans soak up Katy Perry's newly released track from her upcoming fifth studio album, Witness, one fellow star doesn't seem to be such a fan. Rose took to Twitter to air her grievances about the songstress' new music, particularly in light of her latest single, "Swish Swish." Simply, it doesn't sound like she's impressed. "Purposeful poop' to 'bomb a petit' to a sloppy mess of writing over the top of Funkagenda...stop trying to make 'Wit..I mean 'fetch' happen," the Pitch Perfect 3 star tweeted late Thursday. However, the stings didn't stop there. Next, Rose took aim at Perry's recent political passions and participation in Hillary Clinton's campaign. "I just think with everything going on in the world to go from rebranding as political activist only to ditch it and go low.. is.. a bummer," Rose quipped on social media. When one fan urged Rose not to group Nicki Minaj, who is featured on "Swish Swish," in the drama, Rose agreed. "Not gonna lie Nicki is great on it and basically the only part that doesn't sound a mess," she quipped. Some would consider the social media shade partly because of Rose's friendship with Taylor Swift , who is not on the greatest of terms with Perry. Many have also speculated that "Swish Swish" is about Swift, while "Bad Blood" was about Perry. The Grammy nominee has not addressed the question head on, insisting in an Entertainment Weekly interview that her album is "a very empowered record." "There is no one thing that's calling out any one person," Perry told the magazine recently. Meanwhile, Rose insisted she's just doing what she's always done. "I've always stood up for the people I love and against things I think are cheap or mean spirited. That's not new. You have to follow your [heart]," she concluded. "You are her fans you should buy all her songs so the songs will finally chart. If as many as tweeted me bought her last 3 ... [they'd] be hits." (Eonline)

Katy Perry Releases "Swish Swish" With Nicki Minaj -- Is It About Taylor Swift? Is this what a catfight sounds like? Katy Perry's new album, Witness, is now available for pre-order ahead of its June 9 release. Fans who pre-order the digital album will instantly receive "Swish Swish" featuring Nicki Minaj, plus the "Chained to the Rhythm" (featuring Skip Marley) and "Bon Appetit" (featuring Migos). The song was released at midnight, and fans are already speculating that it's about Perry's nemesis Taylor Swift . Last week, Perry danced around the notion of responding to Swift's "Bad Blood" via song, insisting in an Entertainment Weekly interview it's "a very empowered record." Perry added, "There is no one thing that's calling out any one person." "One thing to note is: You can't mistake kindness for weakness and don't come for me. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. And that's not to any one person and don't quote me that it is, because it's not. It's not about that," she continued. "Honestly, when women come together and they decide to unite, this world is going to be a better place. Period end of story. But, let me say this: Everything has a reaction or a consequence so don't forget about that, OK, honey." Perry, who vowed to "keep it real," assured the magazine that Witness "is not about anyone else! This record is about me being seen and heard so that I can see and hear everyone else!" Plus, she said, "It's not even about me! It's about everything that I see out there that I digest." And yet, the possible Swift references in "Swish Swish" are hard to ignore. In September 2014, Perry referenced Mean Girls and tweeted, "Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing." The tweet was written just after Swift told Rolling Stone another pop star -- and former friend -- had allegedly stolen one of her backup dancers. In the first verse of "Swish Swish," Perry sings, "A tiger / Don't lose no sleep / Don't need opinions / From a shellfish or a sheep / Don't you come for me / No, not today / You're calculated / I got your number / 'Cause you're a joker / And I'm a courtside killer queen / And you will kiss the ring / You best believe." Some Twitter users think that "Swish, Swish" could stand for "Swift, Swift." Perry later confirmed the tweet was written about Swift. In a February 2015 Billboard article, she explained, "If somebody is trying to defame my character, you're going to hear about it." Minaj, for her part, had her own public feud with Swift -- which was resolved before the singer-songwriter joined the rapper onstage at the 2015 MTV VMAs to sing "The Night Is Still Young." Perry has not said the song is about Swift, and the former country artist has not commented. "Swish Swish" was produced by Duke Dumont. (Eonline)

Camila Cabello Releases Debut Single "Crying in the Club." The wait is finally over. Camila Cabello shocked fans when she quit Fifth Harmony in December and announced she was going solo. Collaborations with Cashmere Cat ("Love Incredible") and Pitbull and J Balvin ("Hey Ma") followed, and at midnight, she finally dropped her debut single, "Crying in the Club." "You think that you'll die without him / You know that's a lie that you tell yourself / You fear that you lay alone forever now / Ain't true, ain't true, ain't true, no / So put your arms around me tonight / Let the music lift you up like you've never been so high / Open up your heart to me / Let the music lift you up like you've never been this free / 'Til you feel the sunrise," she sings. "Let the music warm your body like the heat of a thousand fires / The heat of a thousand fires." "Ain't no crying in the club (hey, hey) / Let the beat carry your tears as they fall baby / Ain't no crying in the club (hey, hey) / With a little faith, your tears turn to ecstasy," Cabello croons in the chorus. "Ain't no crying in the club / Ain't no crying in the club / Ain't no crying in the club." The song -- off her album, The Hurting, the Healing, the Loving -- was written by Benny Blanco, Cabello and Sia. Blanco produced the song with Matt Beckley, Cashmere Cat and Happy Perez. Snippets of the video were teased on Cabello's Instagram throughout the week. "I'm so excited to share the first music from my album The Hurting, the Healing, The Loving. This video summarizes the message of my journey over the past couple years, from darkness to light, from lost to found," the 20-year-old told Complex days before the song and video were released. "The director, Emil Nava, and I are put our hearts into this and we hope you like it!" Earlier in the week, Cabello told her 10.5 million Instagram followers what else they can expect from her solo endeavor. "The story behind the album starts with the second song that you'll hear called 'I have questions' which I started writing in a hotel bathroom on tour a little over a year ago," she wrote. "i was completely broken during that time, i was in the kind of pain that's uncomfortable to talk about, and it was the kind of chapter you never want to read out loud...i couldn't write another song for 6 months because writing meant i had to feel everything, and i wasn't ready to do that yet. so when i graduated from hotel bathrooms to studios to make my first album, i was making music about everything BUT what i was going through, it was like a secret burning on my tongue and for some reason i could not get myself to say it......." Cabello will perform the song for the first time at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards. Afterward, she will treat fans to an encore performance of her new single "I Have Questions" exclusively for Xfinity X1 customers. (Eonline)

Liam Payne Drops Debut Solo Single "Strip That Down" (feat. Quavo). Liam Payne is back in the game. After One Direction's Niall Horan and Harry Styles released solo projects, Payne dropped his debut single, "Strip That Down," overnight. The 23-year-old singer teamed up with Migos' Quavo for the song, which he co-wrote with Steve Mac and Ed Sheeran. Payne is the second One Direction member to pursue the hip-hop/R&B genre, after former bandmate Zayn Malik. Payne actually references his boy band past in the pre-chorus, singing, "You know, I used to be in 1D (now I'm out, free) / People want me for one thing (that's not me) / I'm not changing, the way that I (used to be) / I just wanna have fun (and get rowdy)." In the chorus, the British pop star trades lines with Quavo, singing, "You know I love it when the music's loud / But c'mon, strip that down for me, baby / Now there's a lot of people in the crowd / But only you can dance with me / So put your hands on my body / And swing that round for me / You know, I love it when the music's loud / But c'mon, strip that down for me (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)." Payne's girlfriend, Cheryl Cole, is a big fan of the song. "Getting to write with people like Ed is one of the most amazing things a person can do," he gushed on BBC Radio 2's The Chris Evans Breakfast Show Friday. "I'm humbled that Ed even took a second of his time," Payne added, "let alone spending hours with him to write the song." "I've been working hard in the studio for over a year and I'm really excited to share this new music with my amazing fans," he said during another radio interview Friday. "I've come a long way since our One Direction debut, and I hope everyone likes my new sound as much as I do." (Eonline)

Liam Payne Just Kind of Dissed Harry Styles' Solo Music. Harry Styles' new music isn't for everyone, not even his former One Direction bandmate Liam Payne. Cheryl Cole's beau stopped by Music Choice to chat about a range of topics but things got a little dicey when he was asked about Niall Horan's new single "Slow Hands" and Harry's "Sign of the Times." Liam called Niall's track "great" and "cool" but boy did he not mince words when it came to his review of Harry's debut single as a solo artist. "I'll be honest with you, it's not my sort of music," he shared. "It's not something I'd listen to, but I think he did a great job of doing what he wanted to do. That's the way I'd put it best, I think." You think? "I think that the funny thing is, [Harry] would say the same thing about me because he doesn't really listen to hip-hop music, whereas it's like my song's more 'Rack City' and his song is more of a different era to something I'd listen to, I guess." Fair enough, Liam, and thank you for the clarification. Just a few days ago, while promoting "Sign of the Times," Harry explained to USA Today that writing his new album was "like therapy." "I was very much working out what I wanted the album to be up until picking the tracklisting, and I wanted people to go through that with me when listening to that, instead of picking a sound and writing ten of the same things." Well, it looks like Harry and his legions of fans are happy with his new music regardless of what any of his former bandmates think! (Eonline)

Never-Before-Heard Chris Cornell Songs to Be Released One Day After His Death. The world will receive a posthumous gift from Chris Cornell on Friday. Just one day after the Soundgarden rocker was found dead in his Detroit hotel room, some of his never-before-heard music will be released. As you may recall, Cornell was featured on the soundtrack for the 1992 Matt Dillon-lead flick Singles. In honor of its 25th anniversary, Warner Bros. is releasing a two-disc reissue, which will feature unreleased material from the late rockstar, according to Spin. The bonus track will also include Cornell's "Nowhere But You," "Spoon Man," "Flutter Girl" and "Missing" among two other songs titled "Ferry Boat #3" and "Score Piece #4." There's also one song from Soundgarden, "Birth Ritual (Live)." Meanwhile, Cornell was found dead in his hotel room at the MGM Grand in Detroit on Thursday with a band around his neck. A preliminary autopsy was conducted, and on Thursday afternoon, the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office issued a statement to E! News, saying, "The cause of death has been determined as suicide by hanging. A full autopsy report has not yet been completed." He is survived by and his wife, Vicky Karayiannis, their kids Toni, 12, and Christopher, 11 and his daughter Lillian, who is almost 17, from a previous marriage. Cornell's rep released a statement to E! News, saying, "His wife Vicky and family were shocked to learn of his sudden and unexpected passing...They would like to thank his fans for their continuous love and loyalty and ask that their privacy be respected at this time."

Alleged gunshots trigger stampede at Future concert. A loud noise triggered a massive stampede after a concert at the Barclays Center -- as frantic concertgoers feared that shots had been fired. Rapper Future had just finished his "Nobody Safe" show around 10:45 p.m. Friday when the sound rang out. "Turned around and saw 500 people sprinting from Barclays Center after we were outside," a concertgoer named Danny tweeted. "Never ran so fast in my entire life." "Almost got trampled to death in a stampede at the Barclays center Future show after people thought they heard gunshots," another attendee named Sarah wrote. Police confirmed that no shots were fired at the arena and no injuries were reported. But Twitter user Mainak Divan said his daughter was hurt during the scuffle. "[She] was trampled 3 times, lost her phone and spent the night in the hosp," he wrote. "Barclays did a terrible job w/security." Police and the arena officials said noise that accompanies the dismantling of the stage was to blame for the chaos. "There were no gunshots tonight inside the arena," the Barclays Center tweeted. "A loud noise during load out caused concern while fans exited the venue. Get home safely." The Atlanta-based rapper grew philosophical after the mayhem: "U gotta live in the moment," he tweeted. "No Regrets. Enjoy." (PageSix)

Detroit photographer Ken Settle has been shooting concerts and artists in the Detroit area since the 70s. He first captured images of the grunge-era band Soundgarden in their early years in the late 80s. Every time they came to town since, he's been on hand to take new photos and watch a show. But Wednesday night's performance at Detroit's Fox Theatre -- the last for frontman Chris Cornell, who committed suicide early Thursday -- was different in several ways, Settle tells PEOPLE. "My first impression was that Chris was more joyous than I'd ever seen him before," Settle said. "He'd always been, back in the early days especially, kind of a brooding performer, more introspective, sometimes looking down at his guitar most of the time with his hair in his face. At this show, it was the opposite of that." By the second song, Cornell was up close with the audience, slapping hands and doing fist bumps. "He was really interactive with the audience," Settle said, noting that the singer gave heartfelt compliments to the city of Detroit. "He said it very sincerely, that 'I've been telling people how great Detroit rock audiences really are.' He said it like he really meant it. But then he followed it by saying, 'I feel really sorry for the next city.'" It was a quip, a random bit of stage patter, that Settles, learning of Cornell's death, says he's had to reconsider. "I took that to mean at the time, he said it that the next city won't compare to the show they would put on in Detroit. In retrospect... it almost sounded like he wasn't going to show up in the next town. That kind of gives me pause." Whatever was going on in Cornell's head, Settle, like other concert goers told PEOPLE, that Cornell was in fine form during a show that went on for more than two hours. "His voice was great. He was hitting all of the high notes," Settle said. "The artistry of the band. This was not a retread. There was still a creative force. They weren't just putting it on cruise control. It was one powerful band. That spark, the energy and the artistry was still there." Settle also observed another behavior he hadn't seen before in of the singer -- he connected with his bandmates. "He got right up to (lead guitarist) Kim Thayil, right in his face, while he was singing. It's been like pulling teeth getting a shot of them in the same frame, but that was different, too. And to me, these all seemed like positive things." In hindsight, like others, Settle finds it unusual that the band closed out its show with a Led Zeppelin song woven in with one of their own. It's title: "In My Time of Dying." "It's a very odd choice to weave that in and now it does make you wonder. There is so much that does point to a person who perhaps knew what was coming up, which is so sad. It makes me look at my pictures to search his eyes to see if there is a clue, something he's saying that people were missing." Settle added, "His voice was the voice of a whole movement, more so than any of the others of that era. It's heartbreaking." Of the news from the medical examiner that Cornell had committed suicide by hanging himself: "To go from the stage and that crowd to the despair that one would feel to take their life in such a way... It's a profound way to hurt yourself. It had to be a very deep pain to get someone to step out of life, with their kids in their life, a pretty profound hurt. That is one of the tragedies of suicide and mental illness and depression." If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). (People)

Miley Cyrus thinks Katy Perry's 'I Kissed A Girl' is about her. And the reason sounds pretty legit... They've been friends for years but we didn't know Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry were that close... Yep. Miley Cyrus has claimed that Perry's 2008 hit, 'I Kissed A Girl', is about her. In an interview on 103.5KTU's Cubby and Carolina in the Morning, Cyrus revealed: "Katy Perry, she's been a friend of mine for a really long time. We were actually just realizing the other day that next year, we'll have been friends for 10 years. I think that's my friend that I've known the longest, which is really, really weird." "When she came out with 'I Kissed a Girl,' I was doing the Hannah Montana movie, and I heard her on the radio, they said, 'Who'd you write that about?' And she said me." Who knew? We wonder if Cyrus still wears cherry Chapstick... (British Glamour)

Is Selena Gomez's new song 'Bad Liar' about Justin Bieber? She's just dropped the music video... Selena Gomez has just dropped her latest single Bad Liar - and it's left us wondering if it's about ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. Releasing the song, Selena also shared a music video on Spotify for her new track. The lyrics are particularly interesting, and have raised questions over who they may be inspired by. "I was walking down the street the other day, trying to distract myself, then I see your face, ooh, you got someone else," she sings, before labelling herself a "bad liar" for trying to hide her true feelings. Selena shared a clip of her music video on Instagram. She is seen on a bed before singing to camera dressed in an oversized grey tee. Regardless of who the song may or may not be about, Selena seems pretty happy with her new man The Weeknd, who she took the Met Gala red carpet with a few weeks ago. You can watch her new vid on Spotify. (British Glamour)

DJ Khaled Gives Berkeley Grads a Crash Course in Winning. A group of future number-crunchers had their commencement crashed by DJ Khaled. The hip-hop star and social media celebrity gave a surprise performance at the ceremony for statistics graduates at the University of California, Berkeley. In a video posted by the school speaker Steve Stout had just finished his address Thursday when he said there was a gift for students. DJ Khaled then walked out among the grads wearing a baby-blue tracksuit and rapping his signature hit "All I Do Is Win." The students looked so stunned and confused that few obeyed when he shouted for them to raise their hands in the air. The 41-year-old rapper then gave a pep talk, saying the world once refused to believe in him, and now he's onstage with "kids and queens and a generation of geniuses." (Billboard)

Record industry sexism exposed in new tell-all book. A new book seeks to expose rampant sex and drugs in the music industry -- not only enjoyed by artists, but by the misogynistic record-company executives who sign them to their labels. Dorothy Carvello -- who started out as Ahmet Ertegun's secretary and became the first female A&R exec at Atlantic Records in the late 1980s, during the pre-digital era when record companies were printing money -- is writing "Anything for a Hit" for Chicago Review Press. "Caligula had nothing on Ahmet Ertegun and his senior executives," Carvello told me. "Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll weren't limited to the artists." Carvello recalled how she was once denied office supplies. "They said they didn't have enough money for a pen. But at the WEA [Warner Elektra Atlantic] convention that year, they had enough cash in the safe to hire hookers for all the execs." A Warner Elektra rep had no comment. As with apparently every other female employee in the business, Carvello -- who also worked for Sony Music -- said that she was routinely subjected to sexual harassment and what she calls "gender hypocrisy." "When I complained, I'd be fired. When men did something wrong, they'd get promoted," Carvello said. She'll share lessons from all the mistakes she made for the next generation of women trying to succeed in an industry dominated by chauvinist pigs. And she said she'll expose the "sexual payola," in which artists sleep with record execs to get deals. "It's still going on," Carvello claimed. The book also will contain stories about Mick Jagger, Robert Plant, Debbie Gibson, Phil Collins and Michael Hutchence, but Ertegun, who encouraged Carvello to write the book, remained her "best friend" in the industry until he died in 2006. "I would always go to him for advice," she said, with a laugh. "And it would always be wrong." (PageSix)

Movies

Jake Gyllenhaal's Netflix film interrupted by boos at Cannes. The Cannes Film Festival started with a bang again this week, after a press screening of Netflix's "Okja" was interrupted by loud booing. Some attendees were infuriated by Netflix's refusal to abide by the new festival rule that all movies should be shown in French cinemas. Then the film -- which stars Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal -- was stopped because of a technical glitch, and restarted again without explanation, which led to further jeers. Christophe Tardieu, director of French film authority the CNC, which underwrites the Cannes festival, told the New York Times that Netflix is "the perfect representation of American cultural imperialism .?.?. I deplore Netflix's attitude in this affair, which showed total intransigence and refusing to understand and accept how the French cultural exception works." Meanwhile, the stars are working the red carpet. Rihanna hosted a glitzy Chopard bash on Friday with Marion Cotillard. And Queen Rania of Jordan will be attending Naomi Campbell's Fashion for Relief benefit. (PageSix)

Hugh Jackman had no idea wolverines are real animals. After playing Wolverine in nine movies, Hugh Jackman arguably knows more about the superhero than anyone. But that wasn't always the case. He recalls researching the animal when he first got the role and being somewhat mistaken about the character. For one thing, he had no idea that a wolverine is a real creature. "I didn't even know there was a wolverine. I literally, embarrassingly did about two weeks of research on wolves. I was rehearsing for three weeks and I was shooting, so I was kind of on my own. I remember going past an IMAX in Toronto, and there was an IMAX documentary about wolves, and so I thought, 'I'll go and see that,'" Jackman said Wednesday. When they stared shooting 2000's "X-Men," director Bryan Singer noticed something wasn't right with Jackman's performance. "He said, 'Are you sort of walking funny, what's going on?' And I said, 'I've been doing this thing with wolves,' and he goes, 'You know you're not a wolf, right?'" Jackman recalled. The actor was gently told he was to portray a wolverine, not a wolf. "I said, 'Well, there's no such thing as a wolverine,'" Jackman said. Singer responded: "'Go to the zoo, dude.' I literally didn't know it existed," Jackman said. A wolverine is a mammal that resembles a small bear but is actually the largest member of the weasel family. The Wolverine that Jackman plays onscreen is a mutant born with super-human senses and the power to heal from almost any wound. Earlier this year, Jackman marked the character's final performance in "Logan," and is now promoting the film's special treatment "Logan Noir," with a black-and-white version of the film in theaters ahead of the DVD release. While "Logan" takes on a grittier look and feel than the other movies of the franchise, director James Mangold, who also co-wrote the screenplay, wanted the story to be more sentimental. "From the very beginning when we set out to make the movie, the one thing we knew is that we wanted to make a movie about family," he said. "Not the kind with a girlfriend or a wife, but the kind where it's forever, and it's you child, or it's your father." "Logan" and "Logan Noir" are currently playing in theaters, and will be available on DVD May 23. (PageSix)

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Premieres. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales sets sail May 26. In the weeks leading up the blockbuster's theatrical release, Javier Bardem, Orlando Bloom, Jerry Bruckheimer, Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush and Brenton Thwaites have traveled the globe to promote the fifth installment in the popular franchise. The film's press tour kicked off May 11 at Shanghai Disney Resort and marked the first time a Hollywood film premiered in Mainland China. A screening was held at the Walt Disney Grand Theatre at Disneytown, and they later stopped by Shanghai Disneyland's Treasure Cove, the first pirate-themed land at a Disney park. Directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg joined the actors on the adventure. Next up was a May 14 visit to Disneyland Paris -- part of the theme park's 25th anniversary celebrations. Actress Kaya Scodelario joined the cast and crew outside Sleeping Beauty Castle. The group set sail for the United States and attended the Hollywood premiere May 18. E! News was on the red carpet, where Rush called the movie an "epic tale," adding, "To have Orlando back was great." Bardem, meanwhile, said it was "great" to work with Depp: "You never know what he will bring!" Bruckheimer, who started the series in 2003, praised Depp's "wonderful" return as Captain Jack Sparrow, telling E! News, "We'd love to do more if we can get him back!" (Eonline)

Michelle Williams' new movie gets a standing ovation at Cannes Film Festival. Wonderstruck is a must-see drama... The 70th annual Cannes Film Festival is in full swing, and competing for the Palme d'Or is Michelle Williams' new movie Wonderstruck. Also starring Julianne Moore and directed by Todd Haynes, the American drama is an adaptation of Brian Selznick's 2011 novel of the same name. It tells the story of a deaf girl who runs away from home in 1927 in search of her idol (Moore), and a deaf boy who runs away to New York in 1977 to find his father after his mother's (Williams) death. Following its official debut - which was attended by the stars-it received a huge standing ovation from the audience. Haynes, who also directed the 2015 love story Carol, is said to have been crying as he looked out at the audience. Wonderstruck is scheduled for limited release later this year, and already tipped for award nominations. (British Glamour)

Amber Heard looks like the baddest Little Mermaid EVER in new Aquaman pics. We want to be part of her world. Seriously though, where do we sign? Amber Heard, who became our major crush after her scene-stealing turn in The Danish Girl, gets centre stage after pictures of her character in DC's forthcoming film Aquaman were released on Twitter. Spoiler: She looks INCRED. But first off, a scene-setter. Heard posted a picture of herself reading one of DC's Aqua Man comics in her dressing room with a typically wry caption: "Over a year of prep, 6 months of training, & countless hrs of denying myself pleasure, aka donuts, has led to this moment: Day 1," she said. We hear and respect your donut pain, Amber, but dear Lord, if we got this sort of a result from denying ourselves donuts then we wouldn't have attacked that box of Krispy Kreme that appeared in the office on Tuesday. I believe the official response is, "Damn, girl." Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa plays Aquaman, who is a human named Arthur Currie (just FYI, this book was originally written in 1941 which explains the names) who discovers that he is the heir to the lost city of Atlantis, and had therefore get his PADI certificate pretty damn quick. Amber's character Mera looks like some ultimate badass combination of Batman villain Poison Ivy, and Lindsay Lohan c 2004. Comics fans were CRYING with joy at how closely Heard's makeup and costume resembles Mera in the comics. So who is this latterday Ariel, anyway? In the comics, Mera flees her kingdom and encounters Aquaman and, erm, Aqualad on Earth (guessing poor Aqualad won't be known by his superhero name given it's basically the most terrible name in history). Smooches follow, and Mera and Aquaman go on to have a son whose code name is... *deep shudder*... Aquababy. AQUABABY. I mean, this just isn't scaleable. Imagine being 34 and having Aquababy on your superhero ID. Come on, parents, think about this a bit harder! Aquaman is due for release in July 2018, so gather your tridents in preparation.

Weekend Box Office: 'Alien: Covenant' Flies to $4.2M Thursday Night. Two smaller films targeting younger moviegoers also open this weekend: 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul' and 'Everything, Everything.' Ridley Scott's sci-fi thriller Alien: Covenant flew to $4.2 million in Thursday-evening previews before opening everywhere Friday morning in North America. Scott's second installment in the Alien prequel franchise, from Fox, is projected to land in the $45 million range for the weekend from 3,760 theaters. That should be enough to topple Disney and Marvel's global goliath Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which has stayed atop the chart for the past two weekends. Alien: Covenant, costing $97 million to produce before marketing, features an ensemble cast led by Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston and Billy Crudup. In June 2012, Scott's Prometheus debuted to $51 million domestically. This time out, the crew of the colony ship Covenant think they have discovered paradise only to encounter hostile and dangerous alien forces. As a way of comparison, Alien: Covenant came in ahead of Mad Max: Fury Road ($3.6 million) in terms of Thursday night previews. Mad Max, opening on the same weekend in 2015, went on to open to $45.4 million domestically. Prometheus earned $3.6 million in midnight previews, but it isn't an apple to apples comparison, since previews began at midnight. Fox is on double duty this weekend, between Alien: Covenant and reboot Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, based on the popular kids' book series. The fourth outing in the film franchise, playing in 3,157 locations, features a new cast and is hoping to gross $10 million in its domestic debut. The Long Haul, which cost $22 million to make, is targeting moviegoers between the ages of 6 and 12. Elsewhere, Warner Bros. and MGM will bow YA romance drama Everything, Everything, which is projected to gross $8 million to $10 million in its opening weekend from 2,801 theaters. Based on Nicola Yoon's best-selling 2015 novel about an 18-year-old girl who can't leave her home because of a mysterious immune disorder, the $10 million film hopes to win over tween and teen girls. Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson star. (Billboard)

Cannes: 'Bobbi Jene,' Award-Winning Doc, Goes to Oscilloscope Laboratories. The portrait of a dancer was named best documentary feature at this year's Tribeca Film Festival. Oscilloscope Laboratories has picked up U.S. rights to Elvira Lind's documentary Bobbi Jene, a portrait of dancer Bobbi Jene, which was named best documentary feature at this year's Tribeca Film Festival. The American-born Jene spent a decade with Israel's Batsheva Dance Company, and the film, which will be released theatrically later this year, follows her as she returns to the United States. At Tribeca, it also won awards for best cinematography in a documentary feature and best editing in a doc. "Elvira has crafted a film that is so much more than the logline would lead you to believe. The closeness and intimacy she achieves easily transcends Bobbi Jene's personal story beyond that of just a dancer. It's a human story with universal relatability that I have no doubt will move anyone who sees it," O-Scope's Dan Berger said in announcing the acquisition. United Talent Agency, which reps Lind, brokered the deal. Autlook Filmsales is handling world sales in Cannes. (Billboard)

Hanway is handling worldwide sales outside of North America for Wilde Wedding and presenting the project to buyers in Cannes. (Hollywood Reporter)

What's in the Vault? Doctor Who's Season 10 Mystery Is Solved, But the Trouble Is Just Beginning. Nobody keeps Missy in a vault, except for the Doctor, apparently. Throughout the first few episodes of this season of Doctor Who, we've all been wondering what the hell the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) was protecting in that big vault. We knew that he had made some sort of oath to stay on Earth unless it was an emergency (a rule which he has not been following so far this season) so that he could make sure the vault was secure. He had taken a job as a university professor and stashed the vault in his office and had Nardole (Matt Lucas) bothering him about it all the time, but we didn't know what exactly he was protecting...until now. As many had started to suspect based on the fact that we knew she was returning, we learned tonight that Missy (Michelle Gomez) is in that vault, and the Doctor had made his vow to the executioners he had saved Missy from. He has to keep her out of trouble for 1000 years, just because he's the only other Time Lord around. Saturday night's episode also revealed one hell of a problem that might take a few episodes to deal with: some very scary aliens have been running simulations of the world to see how easy it will be to take it over, and the Doctor, Bill, and Nardole have all been in one of those simulations. The truth could only be found in a book in the Vatican that was causing anyone who read it to kill themselves, but instead of killing himself, the Doctor (who's still blind, by the way) emailed the documents to another version of himself, who knocked on the vault and asked Missy for help. As for what Missy can actually do to help, Michelle Gomez could not say, exactly. "Because she's a Time Lord as well, she has certain tools at her disposal that she can put into play and try and divert the catastrophe that may or may not be about to hit," Gomez told E! News somewhat vaguely over the phone. "It's up to her how much she uses her forces for good or evil." Gomez also couldn't really tell us much about Missy's plan for getting out of that vault. "She has an ejector seat in her underpants so she just blows herself out," she joked. "There may be a vortex manipulator involved. There may be a key involved. I can't get into that, but all I can say is that for dramatic effect, there will probably be more use for having Missy out of that vault than keeping her in it." What she could say, however, is that we are in for one hell of a second half of a season, especially given that this is the end for both Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffat, who's been at the helm since 2009. "If Steven was ambitious with his imagining before, just try and guess what he's up to coming to the end of his time there," Gomez told us. "Put it this way: everybody had to work really hard to make his ambition happen and I think we've done it... Steven Moffat's certainly not going out quietly." One thing we can look forward to is Missy meeting up with a former incarnation of The Master, played by John Simm. Moffat told Radio Times that he always thought "it'd be fun to have a story where two versions of The Master meet," and that Simm had always wanted to come back after we last saw him in 2010, so that's exactly what's happening later this season. "That's where the acting challenge comes in, because it's basically a Master with two heads, which was really silly and fun at times," Gomez told us. "We're both sort of acting as one. That's where the challenge came in, and I think we pulled it off." And if you need other things to get you excited for what's to come, Gomez has a whole list. "The bangs and crashes are really good and the bits that blow up and the other people that fall down and those awful moments with that terrible thing in the corner, and oh my god, what is that coming through the air vents," she says. "And my stuff too is quite good. And also Matt Lucas makes me laugh." As much as this season is a goodbye to Moffat and a goodbye to Capaldi, who's also leaving later this year, it might also be a goodbye to Gomez, who said that while "you never know" with Missy, it feels like the end of an era for her. However, if new showrunner Chris Chibnall were to ask Gomez to return, she says she wouldn't say no. "I think that would be churlish," she says. "But I think at the moment they've got other things to focus on than whether Michelle's coming back as the Master or not. I will probably pop up at some point, but I think they've got a lot more to focus on at the moment." If it is the end for her, Gomez says she'll have a lot to miss. "That I was in it," she said when we asked what she'd miss the most. "That's really a big part of it for me that I was invited into that world and I got to be a 50 year-old action figure basically out there. There was not a cardigan in sight. It was a really wonderful opportunity for me to be as powerful and unpredictable as I got to be on a daily basis. It was a real gift." For now, however, Missy's not going anywhere. "Let's just say Missy's along for the finale, so they're definitely getting their money's worth out of me," she says. "I'll put it that way." Doctor Who airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. on BBC America.

Vanessa Bayer Leaving Saturday Night Live After Seven Seasons. Saturday Night Live is down one of its star players. E! News can confirm that Vanessa Bayer is leaving the sketch comedy series after a seven-season stint. (Deadline was the first to report the casting shakeup.) Bayer was SNL's longest-serving female castmember prior to her departure, joining the series in 2010 as a featured member before becoming a full-time SNL star two years later. Bayer's wildly popular recurring characters included her impersonation of Jennifer Aniston's Rachel Green from Friends as well as Miley Cyrus and Jacob the Bar Mitzvah Boy, who appeared as a correspondent on Weekend Update. Bayer confirmed her exit on Instagram with a photo of a poem written by fellow castmember Colin Jost. "Thank you SNL for 7 years of laughs, love and incredible memories. It has been a dream come true," she penned. "And thanks for this goodbye sketch at the table, Colin." Earlier this week, it was announced that Bobby Moynihan is also leaving Saturday Night Live for his new CBS comedy, Me, Myself and I. The veteran comedian, who was with SNL for nine seasons, told E! News at the 2017 CBS Upfronts that answering questions about him leaving makes him "so scared." "We'll see. My life's dream was to be on that show and I don't ever want to leave, but [Me, Myself and I] did get picked up so we'll see," he said with a laugh. Meanwhile, Saturday Night Live's season 42 finale airs tonight at 11:30 p.m. on NBC. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is hosting, while Katy Perry is performing. (Eonline)

How "Grandma Nancy Drews" Gemma and Abbie Became the Stars of Netflix's The Keepers. Grandma Nancy Drews. No, it's not a new sitcom coming to CBS this fall (though we'd totally watch it), it's what The Keepers' Gemma Hoskins and Abbie Schaub like to refer to themselves as. The two retired women are front and center in Netflix's latest true crime docu-series, directed by Ryan White, which shines a light on the 1969 murder of Sister Cathy Cesnik, and the massive cover-up that followed. Gemma and Abbie were two of Sister Cathy's students at the Baltimore high school she taught at, and felt a need for justice, launching their own investigation and Facebook page, which eventually connected them to Ryan White. "We met Gemma on one of our first visits to Balitmore," he told E! News. "We met her in a Home Depot parking lot. Her old SUV was covered in bumper stickers, and she started peeling around the city showing us all the hot spots." After meeting the duo, White knew their point of view was key to his series. I already knew about the Facebook group they had started, it was quite small at that point. But I was really drawn to the idea of looking at a mystery though that point of view, they describe themselves as grandma Nancy Drews," he explained. "It just felt like such a unique way to look at some sort of mystery that's been deliberately buried that's been unburied by these retired grandmothers. So that drew me right away." Much like viewers, White found Gemma and Abbie's dynamic compelling, complete opposites that work incredibly well together. "Abbie is Gemma's exact foil. They're this odd couple, where Gemma is very brash. She's the extrovert. She's out in public all the time, knocking on doors, asking questions," he said. "Abbie is the exact opposite. Abbie likes to be in the library stacks or in the state archives quietly looking through things." And White grew quite close with the pair during the three years they spent working on the project together, with White telling us, "I love Gemma and Abbie. I spent so much time with them. Gemma always buys me Fresca, which is my favorite drink, before I arrive, and Abbie buys us cheese plates before we arrive." Frescas and cheese plates with Gemma and Abbie? Sounds like a dream. But Gemma and Abbie are just two examples of the sisterhood Sister Cathy's legacy has created, which White believes is the true "magic" of The Keepers. "When we began this, we never set out to solve a murder. The real magic of making it I think is watching what Gemma and Abbie and several others in Baltimore have done through this grassroot movement, saying, this institution has failed us, they've harmed us, and therefore we're going to take this into our own hands, and it's never too late to get answers," he said. "That's been really magical to watch because it's created this safe haven for so many people who've suffered in silence for so long to come out and say this happened to me as well. It's truly about a sisterhood and that's continuing to grow." The Keepers is currently available to stream on Netflix. (Eonline)

Candace Cameron Bure Explains Why She Can't Stop Watching 13 Reasons Why. Like so many parents today, Candace Cameron Bure has heard the buzz surrounding 13 Reasons Why. The Netflix project that has Selena Gomez serving as an executive producer quickly grabbed the attention of many students. In fact, the show based on the 2007 novel by Jay Asher, has already received an order for season two. While the show has received some concerns for its dark themes and storyline, Candace and her kids have watched several episodes and are supportive of the project. "I'm really enjoying it. I think it's great, it's well done, it's a great conversation piece with my kids," the mother-of-three shared with E! News while supporting her latest Hallmark movie premiering Sunday night. "I was a parent that got the e-mail from my kid's high school saying this show is out there and be sure to have a conversation with your kids if they chose to watch it." Candace added, "They did watch it so as soon as I finish it, we will have a chat." While she only has two more episodes to go, Candace may need a little more time to conclude season one. After all, her newest movie called A Bundle of Trouble: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery premieres this Sunday. In the television event, Aurora (played by Candace) and her boyfriend Martin (Yannick Bisson) get an unexpected visit from his niece and her new baby. The plot thickens, however, when his niece disappears and the baby is left behind. The theme got us wondering if Candace would consider expanding her family with another baby. Her answer may surprise you. "I have baby fever right now. I really do except the shop is closed," she told E! News. "No more babies, but I have baby Tommy on Fuller House and I worked with these two newborn babies." A Bundle of Trouble: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery premiered Sunday night at 9/8c on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. (Eonline)

Lin-Manuel Miranda Joins Disney XD's Ducktales Reboot. Disney XD is not going to miss their shot. E! News has learned that the network has added Lin-Manuel Miranda to the voice cast of their highly-anticipated Ducktales reboot. The Hamilton creator, a lifelong aficionado himself, will lend his voice to the recurring fan-favorite character Gizmoduck, a Duckburg hero whose true identity is Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera, a brilliant young intern working for Scrooge McDuck's personal mad scientist, Gyro Gearloose. "Growing up as a Cuban-American comics enthusiast, I was always hungry for a Latino hero to call my own," co-producer and story editor Francisco Angones said in a statement. "In developing the new series, Matt and I leapt at the opportunity to adapt DuckTales' marquee hero into a young scientist character with Latin-inspired roots." Executive producer Matt Youngberg added, "Lin came to mind instantly for the role of Gizmoduck. His rapid-fire earnestness paired with his wide-eyed yet determined optimism made him the perfect person to yell 'BLATHERING BLATHERSKITE!'" Miranda joins a roster of voices that's already an embarrassment of riches, including David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck; Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as the voices of Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively; Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack; Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack and Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley. Ducktales has already been renewed for a second season ahead of its premiere this summer. Are you looking forward to Miranda as the new Gizmoduck? Ducktales premieres summer 2017 on Disney XD.

The Dynasty Revival Cast Has Already Perfected the Dramatic Reaction Shot and It's Beautiful to Watch. Oh. My. Dynasty. Rejoice, soap lovers, because The CW is bringing back one of TV's most iconic series, Dynasty, and it looks just as over-the-top and decadent as the original show. And while they have some pretty big shoulder pads to fill (All hail, Joan Collins!), the cast is more than ready for their dramatic close-up. We know this because E! News put them on the spot on the red carpet at the network's Upfront presentation in New York City, asking Alan Dale, Elizabeth Gillies and Nathalie Kelley to give us their best dramatic turn to the camera. Warning: the online video will give you chills. That's how damn good the cast is at bringing the dramatic stare. Of course, Alan Dale, ever the professional with his experience on soaps such as Neighbors and The O.C., even added in his own dialogue, warning, "I know everything." But the revival's new guys, Sam Adegoke, Rafael de la Fuente and James Mackay, were more than able to hold their own, even if Rafael admitted he had no idea what is look's "subtext" was. (Whatever it was, we didn't hate it!) Gossip Girl and The O.C.'s Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage have teamed with the original show's creators, Esther and Richard Shapiro, to bring the soap that defined the '80s to 2017. Dynasty will air Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on The CW this fall. (Eonline)

Major Raven's Home Casting Scoop: And the Father of Raven's Kids Is... You never forget your first love. Just ask Raven! Raven's Home, the highly anticipated sequel series to That's So Raven, has added familiar face from the original show, and we think fans will find this casting news very interesting. E! News can exclusive reveal that Jonathan McDaniel will be reprising the role of Devon Carter, Raven's (Raven Symone) boyfriend in seasons two-four. And we have good news and bad news for fans of the adorable couple. Good news? They had two kids together! Bad news? They are now divorced. In the new series, viewers will see Raven and her BFF Chelsea (Anneliese van der Pol) as divorced single mothers, raising their children together in the same chaotic household. And it looks like Raven's ability to see the future is genetic, as one of her 11-year-old twins Booker (Issac Ryan Brown) has the same ability. Raven's other twin, Nia, will be played by Navia Robinson, while Jason Maybaum will take on the role of Chelsea's son Levi, and Sky Katz will be playing Tess, Booker and Nia's best friend and neighbor. E! News was on set for Jonathan McDaniel's Raven's Home debut, as well as an exclusive first look at the Disney Channel series' set. That's So Raven fans will remember Devon as Raven's longtime crush-turned-BF, who she remained in a relationship with after he moved to Seattle. He often returned and paid Raven a visit when his father would come to San Francisco for business trips. "There is only one Raven -- and for over 25 years, she has blessed audiences around the world with the greatest gift of all -- the pure, unadulterated joy of laugh-out-loud funny. After being a part of over 20 different Disney projects, we are thrilled to be bringing Raven home to Disney Channel once again," Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer of Disney Channels Worldwide, said in a statement when the sequel series was announced. Raven's Home will debut on Friday, July 21 on Disney Channel, following the premiere of the highly anticipated Descendants 2. (Eonline)

Grey's Anatomy Season 13 Finale: Did Everyone Survive the Explosion? What a weirdly happy ending to such a stressful episode! On Grey's Anatomy, the hospital has exploded before, and doctors and children have died and nearly died before, but never has it just been one doctor and one of the children from Big Little Lies braving that exploding hospital alone before, while the other doctors just kind of wander around with no idea what's even going on. We felt like we were breathing in smoke for an hour. After the explosions started last week, Stephanie (Jerrika Hinton) and Erin (Darby Camp) were both still alive, but something had fallen on Erin's leg and Stephanie had to basically MacGyver a splint in the burning hospital room. Eventually, after much stress, Stephanie and Erin made their way up the stairwell to the roof, where no one could hear Stephanie's cries. Ben (Jason George) eventually remembered where he had seen Stephanie in the hallway and he and the firefighters eventually found her desperately trying to keep Erin from coding. In trying to keep Erin alive (which she did!), Stephanie ignored any advice to take care of herself, and wouldn't you know it, she passed out. Her coworkers expected this, and reacted relatively casually, which is usually a cause for alarm. This time, it wasn't. Stephanie ended up alive with some severe burns and a new lease on life, which led her to decide that she didn't want to only see the inside of a hospital anymore. She quit so she could see the world, live her life, etc. etc. Honestly, after all that, we'd probably quit too. In the meantime, Minnick (Marika Dominczyk) officially cemented her position as The Worst. She kept telling Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) to forget about the missing child and let the police handle it, and was in charge of telling the police that Edwards was missing. Of course, she forgot to mention Edwards to the police, meaning no one was looking for her except for the non-firefighter Jackson (Jesse Williams), who got distracted by a patient suffering from kidney stones in the hallway. Bailey (Chandra Wilson) had finally had enough with Minnick's protocol and declared her fired, so clearly she agrees that Minnick is The Worst. Good riddance! And in some other happy news, Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) skipped the hospital on fire for a road trip to meet up with Owen's still-alive sister, and we were having trouble focusing on that storyline until they finally arrived, and "10,000 Miles" was playing, and at the same time, back at Grey Sloane, Meredith was making sure Riggs (Martin Henderson) could breathe as she told him the news. She told him she was OK and sent him off to meet her, and the season ended with Owen watching his sister get loaded off of a helicopter. Owen was crying. We were crying. It was a beautiful tear-fest, and this time nobody was dead! It's a Grey's Anatomy miracle. Grey's Anatomy will return to ABC in the fall. (Eonline)

The Power of Kimmy Schmidt: How Tina Fey & the Netflix Series Changed the Lives of Ellie Kemper, Jane Krakowski, Tituss Burgess. Behold the power of Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. With Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, the Netflix series the two co-created, the writers and executive producers created new platforms for Ellie Kemper, previously a supporting player on The Office, 30 Rock's Jane Krakowski, and Tituss Burgess, a Broadway veteran who had limited TV work...that is until his Kimmy Schmidt role was written for him. "That sounds nuts, doesn't it?...That's the stuff of old Hollywood, right? Where you make a star, where you create a star, when you give an unknown a vehicle and a star is born? Pardon the movie reference," Burgess laughed. "I didn't believe it when I heard it was sort of, kind of happening. Even to this day though, in all sincerity, I still pinch myself." "I still kind of can't believe my good fortune, but I just love working with [Fey] so much and I've learned so much from her about how to handle an empire," Burgess continued. "She has her hands in so many different projects and yet she's always calm and cool. She's always on set and she gives the best notes. So, no, I never in my wildest dreams would've imagined I'd have a TV show where my name is my name." E! News was on the Queens, New York set of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's third season finale as the three actors looked back on how their lives have been impacted by their work on the Netflix series. Now Burgess is two Emmy nominations in and has his own line of wine, all thanks to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. "What's been the biggest change? That's a really good question. I have a relatively boring answer. You've heard the phrase, "If you want to get something done, give it to a busy person"? I seem to have far more going on outside of Kimmy Schmidt that requires the same amount of focus, so I don't get a lot of sleep. But I'm kind of getting a lot of things done, so I guess I've learned to multitask better," he said. And then there's Krakowski, who appeared in all seven seasons of Fey's Emmy-winning NBC comedy 30 Rock as the attention-hungry actress Jenna Maroney. She received four Emmy nominations for the role and is now on her 11th year working with Fey and Carlock -- all stemming from a role she didn't even originally have in 30 Rock's first (unaired) pilot. The impact is not lost on Krakowski. "I really look back on that day and I don't know what good luck was bestowed on me. I just went in for an audition to meet with Tina and Robert -- who would've expected we'd have this many years together? I've been completely spoiled because I don't want to go out in the real world. I've had the best writing there could be for the last 11 or 12 television seasons now. They've come way more to me than just coworkers. We've shared life things together; we've had our kids at the same time. I look to Tina for so much advice beyond even work-related issues, I just think she's a great lady. So, no, I never thought we'd be this far and I hope we keep going. I only hope that this show has as many years as 30 Rock did and that we can grow old together," Krakowski laughed. And now it's Kemper's turn to grow with her character. Kimmy Schmidt is Kemper's first lead TV role. She received her first Emmy nomination and had her first baby while inhabiting Kimmy Schmidt's brightly-colored pants. "This sounds absolutely corny, I will fully admit it, but I am inspired by Kimmy. I think that she embodies this spirit I hope to -- that I strive to have. She is so tenacious and resilient and refuses to let outside circumstances dictate her own actions. That I try to draw from that in my real life when I'm feeling frustrated or challenged or whatever it is," Kemper said. "That has been so special. We were just thinking about that first season and filming the pilot outside -- everything that has happened already, both personally and professionally for all of us the past three years. It's cool to be able to track professional milestones to what's happening personally as well." However, the one thing that hasn't changed for the three actors is the relationship between them all. "It was one of those things where you just don't know when they put you together -- although with Tina Fey and Robert Carlock at the helm I assumed they'd pick like-minded people -- but yeah we just had this instant friendship and bond. That's a great feeling to have when you first come in and it's been the same. I adore those folks," Krakowski said. Burgess agreed. "Honestly, I've got to tell you, it's the same as day one. Nothing's changed. Love expands, compounds, but I have not learned anything new or... It started in a place like a familial atmosphere," Burgess said. "Tituss and I both felt this... Maybe it was the first day on set because we met before that, but the first day on set we were like, 'Oh, we know each other from, I don't know,'" Kemper said. "We just felt that we had known each other for years and years. It's that kind of friendship, which is so lucky." Even if he hasn't met Kemper's baby. "Now Ellie has a baby... That I still have not met. The running joke is this baby does not exist. But she and I -- that is my sister from another mister...I'm obsessed with her in such an unhealthy way. When we're not working together we're constantly texting," Burgess said. "I keep telling her we should take our texts exchange and make a coffee table book because the things that we talk about are so ri-damn-diculous. I just love her so much. She's one of my favorite people on the planet, truly." Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season three dropped Friday, May 19 on Netflix. (Eonline)

Is Luke Perry Really Leaving Riverdale?! Is Fred really dead?! That's the question on every Riverdale fan's mind after the shocking season one finale, which found Fred (Luke Perry), bleeding out in his son Archie's (KJ Apa) arms after being shot by a masked man in Pop's. But come on, they really wouldn't kill off Dylan McKay Fred, right?! While showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told us Luke Perry would be in the season two premiere, he didn't want to reveal Fred's fate. So, of course, we had to track down the cast at The CW's Upfront presentation in New York City to see if we could get any spoilers out of them. Sadly, they were not giving up the goods. "Fred living or dying is still unclear," KJ Apa said, "whether or not he does live or die, Archie's life is about to change, for sure." And sorry Riverrats, but Cole Sprouse wasn't able to provide any solace. "I don't really have any comfort to give them about Fred truthfully, unfortunately," he said. "I wish I could sit here and be like, 'He'll be OK!' But I don't know." While Ashleigh Murray and Marisol Nichols have no idea who shot Fred, though Nichols is pretty sure Hermione will suspect her imprisoned husband Hiram (who will be played by Mark Consuelos in season two) had something to do with it, Madeleine Petsch does know the identity of the shooter...and her facial expression was quite interesting when we asked. As for Perry himself, he has a theory about who may have shot his character, and while he wouldn't say if he's returning, he did say he trusts his showrunner. "I have a lot of trust in him. I'm happy to go wherever he takes me. If he kills me, he kills me. If he don't, he don't!" Riverdale will air Wednesdays at 8 p.m. this fall on The CW. (Eonline)

Katie Cazorla and Tania Mehra Engage in a Never-Ending War of Words on Second Wives Club. Round three! Katie Cazorla and Tania Mehra were the latest club members to face off in Thursday night's episode of Second Wives Club. Shawna Craig was thrown into the middle of her friends' feud as the two ladies continued to bicker and hurl insults back and forth. "Katie's pissed off at a few of the things that she heard that I said about her," Tania explained. "But really, it was just a conversation. There were no ill feelings behind any of it." However, Katie didn't take it that way, especially when Tania said she's on a "different level." Their ongoing argument culminated in another confrontation at Tania's boat party. "We get into Tania's paddle boat and lo and behold Tania starts laying into me," Katie explained, later adding, "Tania's boat party sucked." Meanwhile, Veronika Obeng struggled about what to do next in her marriage after finding out about her husband's affair. "I feel like I'm being torn down the middle," she told her sister. "I have no idea what I'm going to say to him." Although Veronika tried to keep her personal life private, the other women in the club started to suspect something serious was going on after she suddenly changed her Facebook relationship status to "Single." But when Katie asked her about it, she quickly brushed it off. "It's just a phase," she replied. "I'm just working through a few things is all and at that moment, after a few glasses of wine, that's where I was. I honestly regret posting it because it just garnered way too much attention." Second Wives Club Thursday at 9 p.m., on E! (Eonline)

Reporters Who Live-Tweet the Bill Cosby Trial Could Face Jailing. Jury selection in the entertainer's sexual assault trial begins on Monday. Montgomery County Judges Thomas DeRicci and Steven O'Neill have laid down some operating procedure for journalists covering the much anticipated sexual assault trial of Bill Cosby. When the approximately two-week long proceeding begins on June 5, don't expect to hear much if anything about what happened each day until breaks. That's because the Pennsylvania judges are barring all communications from electronic devices taken into the courthouse, and with seating at a premium, anyone who leaves won't be able to return. A decorum order put out on Thursday adds that any trial attendee who violates the order is subject to penalties for contempt of court including fines or summary incarceration. According to a communications official at the court, there will be active monitoring of information being disseminated outside of the courthouse including on social media to ensure compliance. The judges are allowing pool cameras for video footage and still photography, but before anyone gets too excited, the trial will hardly be televised. Instead, photographers can shoot the comings and goings of trial attendees while the video is closed circuit and mainly for the benefit of those in an auxiliary room. In total, there will be 120 reporters allowed seating with half -- the Associated Press, local reporters, and some legal publications -- given seating right in the main room. The trial doesn't begin for another two weeks, but will begin making waves as soon as Monday when jury selection commences. The questions asked during the voir dire process for culling prospective jurors -- many being bussed from Pittsburgh -- could tease some elements from the case and also present somewhat of a survey on familiarity with Bill Cosby's career and the allegations against him. It will also present a fascinating look at bias and impartiality over something that commands almost universal recognition. In advance of the trial, Cosby's lawyers have expressed their challenge as to "change the optics." With information being so tightly controlled, there will inenvitably be floods of Bill Cosby news whenever reporters get outside. If the O.J. Simpson trial a quarter century ago became a near around-the-clock television spectacle, this one may be remembered for consistent but infrequent bursts of viral reports on social media in the later hours upon the breaks in action.
