Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham Welcome Their First Baby. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham have officially become parents! The model revealed their son arrived on Wednesday by sharing a black and white photo of their newborn's tiny hand. "Our little man arrived! Jack Oscar Statham 8.8lbs on Saturday June 24th." The Mad Max: Fury Road star broke the news of her pregnancy also on Instagram in February. "Very happy to share that Jason and I are expecting!! Lots of love Rosie x Photo by @jasonstatham," she captioned the post that revealed the model had a growing baby bump while relaxing on the beach. On May 20th, Rosie was surrounded by around 40-50 family and friends for her beautiful baby shower. "Everyone was really chill and the spotlight was Rosie," a source told E! News at the time adding that the mama-to-be looked absolutely "flawless" during the bash. According to our insider, guests dined on healthy snacks and were treated to neutral-themed decor so as not to reveal the baby's sex -- but both Jason and Rosie knew whether they were having a boy or a girl well before the shower. The two have maintained a low profile since the announcement -- most recently stepping out together for The Fate of the Furious premiere, a franchise Jason has been part of since 2013. So, what has the couple been doing while staying out of the spotlight? Getting ready for the baby and staying fit! "Rosie and Jason are looking forward to becoming parents," a source shared with E! News back in March. "They are starting to get their nursery together. They are just such a lovely couple and really in love." "Rosie and Jason both still stay very active because fitness is important to them both," our insider explained. "She feel good overall." It seems the couple that frequently exercises together stays together as they have been by each other's side for seven years -- and having a family together is something that has been on the couple's mind for some time. "Having a family is something I think about for sure, and whether I'd live here in America or in England," the model told Esquire magazine in 2015. "But it's not always as simple as that... I have no idea what will happen, but it'll be interesting to find out, right? And nothing will be perfect, I'm sure." Congratulations on your new bundle of joy, you two! (Eonline)

Sometimes it really pays to have a professional fashion designer in the family. Particularly when it comes to figuring out what you're going to wear for your big day, having a man like Tommy Hilfiger as your dad really pays off as his daughter Aly Hilfiger demonstrated over the weekend, tying the knot with her longtime partner and father to her daughter, Steve Hash. The couple got engaged in July of last year when Hash proposed during a trip to Paris with a ring of his own design after dating for six years. A month after the engagement, Aly told People, "I was so surprised and overwhelmed with happiness and excitement. We are having fun planning a lovely wedding at our family's home in Connecticut." Clearly, however, their nuptial plans changed between then and now as the pair actually wound up hosting their wedding in Mustique, a small, private island that is a part of the Grenadines, a chain of islands in the West Indies. While Aly has yet to post a photo from the wedding, she did post a shot of herself with her fiance prior to the ceremony, writing in the caption, "Nothing like marrying your best friend and soul mate... I am so excited!!!!!!!" But since she's probably busy enjoying newlywed life, her family took care of all the posting for her, sharing shots of the ceremony and her gorgeous gown custom designed by her father on their own social media accounts. Tommy Hilfiger shared a shot of the moment he walked his daughter down the beach turned aisle, writing, "So happy for my daughter Ally's wedding to Steve Hash," with his wife Dee Ocleppo sharing the same moment on her own account, adding, "A very proud Dad and a glowing bride." For the dress he designed for his daughter, Tommy opted to keep the gown itself super simple, sticking with just a V-neck white silk slip, and adding a whole lot of drama thanks to a sheer, hooded cape with all-over white floral embroidery that turned a deep shade of royal blue along the hem. Hash also opted for all white in the form of a slim cut linen suit, and their daughter Harley served as flower girl in a little white shift that matched her mother's wedding dress embroidery. The step-mother and father of the bride also looked glamorous, with Dee wearing a white ruffled, one-shoulder bandeau top and high-waisted skirt with ruffled hem and Tommy wearing a tan linen suit with a white Panama hat and monogrammed loafers. If all of that isn't glamorous enough for your tastes, the bride also walked down the aisle to the dulcet tones of The Rolling Stone's Ronnie Wood and guests danced all week-long to tunes hand-curated by Skrillex. Not too shabby for a ceremony already set in a total tropical paradise. (People)

Teen Mom's Maci Bookout Says She's ''Definitely Interested'' in Adopting a Fourth Child. Maci Bookout has her sights set on motherhood. The Teen Mom: OG personality is already a proud mama to 8-year-old Bentley Edwards (with ex Ryan Edwards), 2-year-old Jayde McKinney and 1-year-old Maverick McKinney, but in a sit-down interview with E! News, she revealed adopting is definitely an option for her and hubby Taylor McKinney. She admitted, "I don't want to be pregnant again, but Taylor and I are both definitely interested in adoption." But don't start congratulating the lovebirds just yet, Teen Mom fanatics. Bookout told us, "If it does happen, it will not be anytime soon." For now, the 25-year-old is focused on keeping life as normal as possible for Bentley, who's grown up so quickly in the years since 16 and Pregnant premiered in 2009. Maci shared that as her eldest child gets older, she feels more and more inclined to leave the Teen Mom franchise altogether. "Do I still think about leaving the show?" she recalled. "Yeah, I definitely do. The thought is always kind of there, especially in between seasons. It's a season by season decision." Bookout says Bentley's age is "one of the biggest things" pushing her to part ways with the MTV reality series. "He's in elementary school," the redhead explained. "He plays sports. [I'm] trying to make sure he stays humble and isn't necessarily bothered by people knowing who he is and seeing things on TV." The Tennessee-native is currently promoting her second memoir, I Wasn't Born Bulletproof: Lessons I've Learned (So You Don't Have To). In it, Bookout details the ups and downs of life as a young mother, including the moment her parents found out about her first pregnancy. Maci reflected on that fateful day with us, sharing, "I was absolutely mortified to tell my parents I was pregnant. The day that I was going to do it, I was two seconds away from getting in the car and driving to Florida." The teen ultimately broke the news over a text message sent to her mom, and the rest -- as they say -- goes down in Teen Mom history. I Wasn't Born Bulletproof: Lessons I've Learned (So You Don't Have To) is out now. (Eonline)

Jennifer Garner knows how to negotiate. Before agreeing to speak to a room of 160 executives from software company Fast Enterprises at the Atlantis Paradise Island resort, the actress had a list of requests. In addition to her appearance fee, she would need a private jet to transport her to and from the two-hour June 20 engagement and a local glam squad to prep her for the meet-and-greet (no selfies, please!) and subsequent dinner. She would also need adequate accommodations: two adjoining two-bedroom suites and an addition suite for a five-night stay. After all, she would need plenty of room for her traveling companions: daughters Violet, 11, and Seraphina, 8, son Samuel, 5 . . . and their father, Ben Affleck. Despite officially filing for divorce from the two-time Oscar winner, 44, in April, nearly two years after they announced the end of their decade long marriage, the 45-year-old star of The Tribes of Palos Verdes asked him to join her and their kids on the Bahamian getaway, sources reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly. Though a Garner insider insists the couple aren't reuniting, "Jen feels it is most beneficial for the kids to have their father present." That means the Live by Night actor was on hand to watch their offspring enjoy their beach vacation, much of which, says a source, was spent 100 miles away at Baker's Bay in Great Guana Cay -- the same spot the family escaped to in 2015, when Garner and Affleck revealed they had split. There, the kids could swim in the infinity pool, explore the white sand beaches and take advantage of the club's many offerings. (On the list: snorkeling, tubing and even a Bahamian cooking class.) For Affleck, who recently spent time away filming, "it was a great opportunity to keep the norm going for the kids," says a close Ben source. Garner was also eager to present a united front, says the insider: "Jen will always do whatever it takes to provide the best arrangements for them that she can." (US Weekly)

Steve Carell on Being a "Silver Fox": "My Wife Finally Said She's in Love With Me." Steve Carell is looking a touch different these days -- and the entire country has noticed. The Despicable Me star and famed comedian has been rocking silver locks as of late and has since acquired a new label: "silver fox." While visiting The Tonight Show Tuesday night, Jimmy Fallon couldn't let the moment to bring up the recent media attention pass him by. "You're a studmuffin," Fallon complimented the star as the audience cheered. "It's not just me -- look at this." The host whipped out a list of recent headlines about Carell, praising him as "insanely hot" among other digital admiration. One headline urged George Clooney to move over, insinuating that he has officially been replaced. "Shove aside," Carell joked. So, what exactly is it like to join the leagues of Hollywood's great silver foxes, like Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen and Clooney? "There's a bracelet you can get," he joked. "Mine says Steve and on the other side of the bracelet, it says, 'hunk of man meat.'" Clearly having a fun time with the attention, Carell turned the focus to his wife of 22 years, Nancy Carell. "My wife finally said she's in love with me," he quipped. "Very excited." While we highly doubt that's at all true, it seems there are tons of new ladies vying for some attention from Hollywood's newly initiated silver fox. Lookin' good, Steve! (Eonline)

Lamar Odom Has One Word for Renewing His Romance With Khloe Kardashian: "No." Lamar Odom is picking up his life without Khloe Kardashian. The basketball player, who was famously married to the reality star for several years before her initial divorce filing in 2013, has made it clear that a rekindled romance between him and his ex is not in their best interest. During a sit-down with Wendy Williams aired on Wednesday, the daytime talk show host broached the subject, asking, "If she came back into your life right now..." However, he cut the question off there with an unwavering "no." "I say that with no offense to her -- that would be the best for both of us you, know what I'm saying?" he elaborated. "We have to keep our distance." Since staying by his side while he was hospitalized in a coma and seeing him through recovery, Kardashian has since found love with NBA player Tristan Thompson -- and their relationship has not gone unnoticed by Odom. "They seem happy together," he told Williams. "Good for them." She's also shed some weight since they were married, but he quipped, "She's always been beautiful to me." The conversation soon turned to the rest of the Kardashian family members, including Khloe's younger brother, Rob Kardashian, who was notably close with Lamar before their breakup. However, that no longer seems to be the case. "He has a child -- I haven't met his child yet or anything," Odom noted. As for why they haven't spoken, he mused, "I guess it's maybe because I hurt his sister too much." "I would have a problem with me too... I mean if she was my sister," he continued. He candidly revealed he hasn't spoken to any of the Kardashian family members as of late. "It is the way it is," he commented. However, the father of three did have a few words of advice for Scott Disick, who has struggled with substance abuse himself: "Be strong. Put God first. Keep your kids in mind." (Eonline)

Katy Perry speaks out about *those* Orlando Bloom paddle board pics. "I was just not in the mood". Remember when Orlando Bloom broke the Internet when he paddle boarded naked with his then-girlfriend Katy Perry? Of course you remember - how could we forget the shadow. The censored photo of Orlando Bloom paddling naked behind Katy sent the internet into meltdown, because the censor did not cut out the shadow left by Bloom's penis. OH NO WHAT A CALAMITY. Katy Perry has finally revealed what happened that day during an interview with KIIS FM's Kyle and Jackie O. Orlando allegedly asked Katy if he would go naked with her, but that she was "just not in the mood." She explained: "He asked me if I wanted to be [naked] and I was just like, It's one of those things where I was like, 'oh nah'." Katy continued, saying she later did get naked, but in the privacy of their yacht: "You know when you're dating someone sometimes, it's exciting to be like, 'oh should we try and make out over here in this place?' or what have you... And I was just not in the mood. I saved it for the boat!" These comments come months after Orlando told Nick Grimshaw that he was "over" talking about it, and simply commented: "my poor son".

John McEnroe: My Girls Don't Think I Can Beat Serena Williams. John McEnroe has his opinion and his daughters have another. Amid ongoing controversy and backlash surrounding the retired tennis star's recent comments about Serena Williams, McEnroe was offered the chance to address the situation further during a sit-down on The Late Show. While face to face with host Stephen Colbert Tuesday night, the father of six revealed Williams' fans weren't the only ones unhappy with his comments. "It didn't go over big with my daughters, either," he quipped to Colbert. He's dad to Emily McEnroe, 26, with ex-wife Tatum O'Neal, and Anna McEnroe, 21, Ava McEnroe, 18, and stepdaughter Ruby Myers with wife Patty Smyth. As Colbert put it, McEnroe "stirred the pot" recently during an interview with NPR over the weekend during which he acknowledged that she's the best female player in the world, but when asked about the female qualifier, claimed, "if she played the men's circuit, she'd be like 700 in the world." "That doesn't mean I don't think Serena is an incredible player...On a given day, Serena could beat some players," he continued. "I believe because she's so incredibly strong mentally that she could overcome some situations where players would choke 'cause she's been in it so many times, so many situations at Wimbledon, The U.S. Open, etc. But if she had to just play the circuit -- the men's circuit -- that would be an entirely different story." Then, on Tuesday, he doubled down on his claims during an interview on CBS This Morning and said he would not apologize. "It's not necessary. I didn't know it would create controversy." "Do they say that about girl basketball players -- that they're as good as Michael Jordan, for example?" he asked Colbert Tuesday night. "They might say women's basketball players," Colbert retorted as the audience cheered. "I'm still on air tomorrow. You get to leave." While the argument remained in a TV limbo, it seems McEnroe's daughters are not on his side. "My girls don't think I can beat her now. I thought I could beat her," he said, referencing past comments he's made. "She's pregnant, so maybe I should play her now -- I'd have a better chance," McEnroe continued with mixed response from the audience. Perhaps he needs a reminder that she recently won the Australian Open while pregnant. "But, either way I wish her the absolute best," he concluded on the subject. "She's the best thing that's happened to American tennis in the last 10 to 15 years." Meanwhile, Williams addressed McEnroe head on with a Twitter message: "Dear John, I adore and respect you but please please keep me out of your statements that are not factually based...I've never played anyone ranked 'there' nor do I have time. Respect me and my privacy as I'm trying to have a baby. Good day sir." (Eonline)

Chris Cornell's Widow Vicky Recalls What Happened the Night of His Death: ''I Missed the Signs of Addiction." Vicky Cornell does not blame suicide for taking her husband's life. Chris Cornell's widow sat down with People magazine and admitted she "missed" the signs of his addiction, noting she believes that is what caused his death on May 18. The Soundgarden and Audioslave singer, 52, was found dead in his Detroit hotel room, which the coroner declared to be suicide by hanging. However, Vicky believes the prescription drugs that were found in his system that night -- including the anti-anxiety medication Ativan -- "My Chris was happy, loving, caring and warm," Vicky described her husband. "[He] was humble, sweet, kind and good, with the patience of saint...This was not a depressed man -- it wasn't like I missed that. What I missed were the signs of addiction." She said Chris struggled with substance abuse since he was a child, but he had been sober for years. In fact, she said the last time he relapsed was eight years ago in 2009. However, Vicky admitted she missed clues that he was struggling again. For example, he had been prescribed Ativan to help him with sleep, and yet he was often restless and sleep-deprived. "That was a sign something was off," she said. On the night of his death, following his show at Detroit's Fox Theater, he woke her up by using his smart phone to remotely turn on the lights in their home. Vicky said she was alarmed and called him. "He was on a rant," she recalled. "I said, 'You need to tell me what you took,' and he just got mean. That wasn't my Chris." She talked to his bodyguard who informed her he had been taking double his Ativan dose, but when she called her husband back, he didn't pick up. The bodyguard had to break down two doors to get to Chris, who he found slumped over in the bathroom. He was pronounced dead at the scene. "Addiction is a disease. That disease can take over you and has full power," Vicky said, revealing that her goal moving forward is to help other people battling addiction in their families. "I'm going to do everything in my power to make sure other children don't have to cry like mine have cried." (Eonline)

Johnny Galecki's Central California Home Burns Down in Large Fire. Johnny Galecki's ranch house did not escape a fire blazing through the Central Coast of California. According to TMZ, the Big Bang Theory star's vacation home in San Luis Obispo, Calif. burned down Monday evening as the result of a wildfire in a secluded region east of Santa Margarita. As of Tuesday morning, the blaze was reportedly spread across 1,500 acres and 40 percent contained. The actor, who the outlet reports was not in the area when the fire broke out, has yet to return to the property. Galecki told TMZ, "My heart goes out to all in the area who are also experiencing loss from this vicious fire, the threat of which we live with constantly, which may seem crazy to some but we do so because living in our beautiful, rural area makes it worthwhile." "It's never the structures that create a community -- it's the people," he continued. "And if the people of Santa Margarita have taught me anything it's that, once the smoke has cleared, literally and figuratively, it's a time to reach out and rebuild." Johnny vowed to help his neighborhood, adding, "We've done it before, and will need to do it together again, and it will make our community even closer and stronger. Endless thanks to CalFire and the Sheriff's Office. I know you guys are fighting the good fight to keep us safe. So very relieved no one has been hurt." In 2012, Johnny told Conan O'Brien he bought the more than 300-acre property as an escape pad. "There are some vineyards on it," he explained. "I felt like if you're going to have that kind of land, it should function somehow. I'm not a horse person, and I'm a vegetarian so livestock was out of the question, but I do like wine." "There's a small cabin," he continued, "but I don't even have a bed. I sleep on the floor in front of the fireplace. I have a tractor there... and I bought a giant trampoline." In late April, Galecki joined forces with country singer Randy Houser to put on a free concert in Santa Margarita after their local music festival was canceled. The TV star performed guitar onstage, and according to Rolling Stone, almost $18,000 was raised to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. "I consider them family up there and everyone in the surrounding area, pretty much," Galecki told the San Luis Obispo Tribune. "When the Stampede was canceled, it seemed like a perfect opportunity to gather friends and family around and do something great for the area, and for Pozo, and for charity as well. It was just a no-brainer." Per the celeb's Instagram, he was performing at the LakeShake Festival in Chicago over the weekend, though it's unclear where Galecki flew to immediately after. (Eonline)

Lamar Odom is opening up about the love lost as a result of his past addictions. Odom made a visit to The Wendy Williams Show (airing Wednesday) and opened up about his troublesome past with addiction, his thoughts on mending things with ex-wife Khloe Kardashian, and how difficult it was to lose his relationship with close friend and former brother-in-law Rob Kardashian. "We were close," Odom says in a PEOPLE exclusive clip of the interview. "He has a child. I haven't met his child yet or anything." When asked why he and Rob are no longer on speaking terms, Odom says, "I don't know. I guess maybe it's because I hurt his sister too much. I have no idea. If she was my sister, I would have a problem with me too." The former basketball star has a long history of drug and alcohol abuse. The 37-year-old almost lost his life in a near-fatal overdose in October 2015, hospitalized after being discovered unconscious at a brothel in Nevada. In January, he gave his first sit-down interview since the incident with Dr. Travis Stork of The Doctors -- right before he checked himself into a 30-day rehab program. "I wasn't in a good place mentally before the incident happened," he said during the interview. "My wife at the time, we were going through some things. And I was in a dark place." Khloe and Odom tied the knot in September 2009, but things took a turn for the worse after Odom's cheating scandal and drug relapse. She filed for divorce in 2013, but quickly called it off following Odom's overdose incident. On Dec. 17, Odom's divorce to reality star was finalized after a seemingly endless back-and-forth. Lamar Odom Reveals Whether He'd Get Back with Ex-Wife Khloe Kardashian Lamar Odom discusses ex-wife Khloe Kardashian with Wendy Williams When asked by Williams if he would take back his ex-wife if given the chance, Odom admits, "No. I say that with no offense to her -- that would be the best for both of us. We have to keep our distance." In January, despite Odom's cheating and betrayal during their marriage, Khloe insisted the former NBA star is still "a great person." "His demons are overshadowing what a great heart he has, and I know his soul is still great and he's a beautiful person," she said during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live in January. Odom's interview on The Wendy Williams Show airs Wednesday at 10 a.m. (check local listings). (People)

Kris Jenner has relived the trauma of the OJ Simpson trial -- and her family's connection to his acquittal. June 12, 2017, marked the 23rd anniversary of the murders of OJ's ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Nicole's friend Ron Goldman. Jenner, 61, recounted to The Hollywood Reporter her closeness to Nicole, who was one of her best friends, and the former NFL star, confirming that OJ visited her in the hospital when she gave birth to eldest daughter Kourtney and that her children called him "Uncle OJ." She also alluded to the most infamous gloves on the planet. When asked if she was in fact with Nicole in New York when Nicole purchased a pair of gloves "that may have factored into life later on," Jenner gave a simple answer: "Yes." She noted of Nicole, "She feared for her life, yeah." Jenner was supposed to see Nicole the morning after she was murdered and was at first in complete "shock." "I think after that initial shock of what's going on, I felt like I knew, probably, what had happened," she said. Jenner said she felt conflicted about her presumption of the former NFL star's guilt while her ex-husband Robert Kardashian, whom she described as "the love of my life," was a member of OJ's "Dream Team" of defense attorneys. "I had to respect Robert ... Robert was a very, very good man, very good judgment, he was an attorney, and he was OJ's attorney for a period of time back in the day," Jenner said carefully. "He was always the voice of reason, and always somebody that everybody went to for sound advice, and he always have the answer, and you always felt safe with him. On this particular subject, I felt one way and he felt another. After having so much respect for him for so many years, you just have to still have that same amount of decency and respect for another human being." She added, "I was very upset that he didn't see it maybe the same way I saw it, but we have four children together, so that makes a huge difference when you're going through something as tragic as this. He sat down and wrote a letter to me and my children the night before the trial and brought it over and said, 'I just wanted to tell you that tomorrow is going to be the beginning of a really long journey and read this after I'm gone, and I hope you understand.'" Jenner, who was present for almost every day of the "Trial of the Century," took away some lessons from the infamous proceedings and their aftermath. "You learn a lot about human behavior. You learn a lot about people you think you know. You learn a lot about the justice system. You learn a lot just about so many things, and I think that a great deal of it was some amazing lessons learned along the way, although through tragedy," she said. "I have to believe that everything happens for a reason and somehow we got something out of that." When she learned of the not-guilty verdict, Jenner was in shock -- and pregnant with daughter Kendall, whose middle name is Nicole after Jenner's late friend. "I got to the courthouse and Marcia Clark and some of the people that work for her and with her decided that it was better for me to be upstairs, because I was very pregnant," she said. "I sat up there with one of Nicole's sisters, I remember, and with Bruce [Jenner], and I remember just disbelief, and then thinking, 'How are we gonna get out of here?' We were just kind of scared." As for whether she'd ever reconnect with Simpson pending his potential release from prison this year, Jenner sighed. "I don't have a crystal ball," she said. "But we have some very dear friends in common, so we'll just see how it goes." (Page Six)

Lin-Manuel Miranda Has Celebrities Singing Hamilton for a Cause. Lin-Manuel Miranda has stars singing for their tickets. The Hamilton creator and star has posed his newest challenge to his legions of fans in honor of a special cause. Miranda has teamed up with Prizeo once again in honor of Immigration Heritage Month to benefit the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition. The task is simple -- unless you don't like singing in public. The actor has asked anyone interested in winning two tickets to the Los Angeles opening night of Hamilton (as well as airfare, accommodations and face time with Miranda himself) to donate $10 and post a video singing any Hamilton track of your liking to be eligible to win. "In addition, you and a friend will attend what I promise will be a star-studded after-party," he says on the campaign's website. "We'll also make sure we connect and snap a photo together." As could have been expected, famous Hollywood faces quickly pressed record in honor of the cause -- and the results are almost as good as actually seeing the show. From Eva Longoria to the Harlem Globetrotters, stars warmed up their pipes to sing and rap for a shot at their own seats. As Hamilton says, "There's a million things I haven't done," but you can cross this off the list. (Eonline)

Lindsay Lohan Invites Paris Hilton and Britney Spears to Her Birthday Party, and Suddenly its 2006 Again. Lindsay Lohan is missing her former party pals. Just five days before the actress celebrates her 31st birthday, Lohan penned a tweet requesting Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Beyonce's (Yes, Beyonce) presence at her blowout bash in Greece. "#nicegirls @britneyspears @parishilton come to #mykonos for my birthday this weekend @Beyonce you too," LiLo wrote. It's been years since anyone's seen Paris and Lindsay walk a red carpet together, and who knows if Queen Bey has ever even crossed paths with the controversial star, but there's no denying Lohan's birthday wish is a major throwback to the early 2000s. Lohan and Hilton's infamous feud captivated tabloids a decade ago, especially one fateful night in November 2006 when the duo stepped out with Britney at Guy's Bar in West Hollywood. They arrived in an SUV together, but it was the pop star's exit sans underwear that really went down in Hollywood history. That same night while confronted by paparazzi, Paris urged Lindsay to tell the "truth" regarding the Mean Girls star's claim that her frenemy had thrown a drink at her. "Paris is my friend. Everyone lies about everything. She's a nice person... I've known her since I was 15. Stop making us hate each other," Lindsay told photographers as she ducked into the car with Hilton behind the wheel. This debacle was, of course, preceded by Brandon Davis calling Lindsay a "firecrotch," his expletive-filled rant made Paris guilty by association as she stood by him giggling. Lindsay told Elle in 2006 that despite never having seen the video, the pair started prank calling her "screaming and saying the stuff that was said in the video." "I don't want to fight with anyone. But obviously, she's very comfortable making videos," Lindsay quipped, referencing the heiress' sex tape. "I just feel like people need to think more before they act. Even me sometimes." Since that admittedly eyebrow-raising period of time, it's clear Lindsay has put the past behind her and is ready to reunite with her one-time besties. So... Brit, Paris, Bey: Will you RSVP?

Former Atlanta Braves player Keith Lockhart's teenage son is battling for his life after being hit in the face with a baseball during a tournament game last week, multiple outlets report. Lockhart's son, 15-year-old Jason Lockhart, was playing in a South Carolina baseball tournament on June 17 when he was hit by a ball as he crossed home plate, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The catcher was throwing the ball to the pitcher when it broke Jason's nose. Initially, Jason was treated with stitches, but during a doctor's appointment two days later his fractured nose began to bleed uncontrollably, revealing that there was also a tear in his artery. Jason then underwent surgery to repair the laceration and reset his nose. On Wednesday of last week, however, Jason was placed on a ventilator in the Intensive Care Unit of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite Hospital because of continued bleeding, his sister Sydney Lockhart-who has been regularly sharing updates on social media-wrote. By the end of the week, Sydney wrote that Jason was placed on life support as doctors attempted to manage his bleeding. "He has had a few more bleeds since last night's procedure, so they are now trying to sedate him to a paralytic level so he won't cough or move," she wrote. "If the bleeding continues they will have to take him to the operating room once more to try to find the source of the bleeding." On Sunday, Jason underwent surgery to do an endovascular embolization, cutting off the blood supply of the two areas determined to be feeding the locations where the teen was bleeding most heavily. Jason was meant to return to surgery on Monday to have his nose repacked, but it was rescheduled because, "[his] body [was] responding a bit slower than anticipated," said Sydney. Special Olympics Athlete Gives Surgeon His Gold Medal After Life-Saving Brain Surgery Special Olympics athlete Edward Garcia gives his gold metal to the doctor that performed operation on him He was then taken in for another surgery on Tuesday. Ahead of that procedure, Sydney wrote, "What seems like a simple surgery today has become a massive ball of complications. Some blood in his lungs, a fever, bleeding.. it is all so overwhelming." Throughout the entire ordeal, the Lockharts have expressed gratitude for words of support and prayer from fans. Speaking to local outlet 11 Alive on Sunday, Sydney said, "He is going to be okay we just don't really know when. It's been crazy. We are surrounded by so many people and we are feeling the prayers." The Lockhart family did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for additional comment. (People)

Looks like Matt Harvey is over Adriana Lima. The injured Mets pitcher was spotted getting cozy with former "Laguna Beach" and "The Hills" star Lo Bosworth in the Hamptons this weekend. Harvey -- who is out with a stress injury to the scapula bone -- spent Sunday evening bar-hopping, starting at The Surf Lodge in Montauk. His group departed around 8 p.m. and headed over to Swallow East for reggae night. There, Harvey hung out with his friends at the bar until about 10 p.m., ordering up Don Julio 1942 tequila, Hendrick's gin and tonics, and vodka and Red Bull. But something -- or someone -- at Surf Lodge must have caught Harvey's eye, because the 28-year-old pitcher later returned to the hotspot and met up with Bosworth, 30. The pair sipped glasses of rose in a secluded corner and appeared to be engaged in "deep conversation," a spy told Page Six. "They looked pretty cozy," another source added. But the conversation didn't last long -- Harvey was seen leaving with Bosworth hand-in-hand, shortly after midnight. Reps for Harvey and Bosworth did not immediately return requests for comment.

Ramona Singer had a "meltdown," spies said, when she confronted publicist Anna Rothschild at a swanky Hamptons party and accused the PR pro of tattling about Singer and her ex-husband. We're told the "Real Housewives of New York" star ambushed Rothschild at a bash for socialite Paola Rosenshein's birthday on Friday, and accused the PR whiz of gossiping about Mario Singer's 2014 affair with Kyle "Kasey" Dexter. While witnesses said Ramona -- who divorced Mario last year -- "had a meltdown" and "screamed" at Rothschild, saying she was "evil, horrible .?.?. you broke up my family." Rothschild responded, "Your husband was the one who left you and broke up your family." Singer insisted, "I merely expressed to her that I felt it was a low blow to .?.?. [release] private information on my then-marriage and family." Others who attended and may have witnessed the scene included Luann de Lesseps and skin-care guru Peter Thomas Roth. (Page Six)

Kylie Jenner is launching a sunglasses line & they're definitely not boring. We're expecting these to sell out. As everything Kylie puts her finger on, does. Well, good thing payday is approaching, because Kylie is about to break your bank once again. If lip kits, bikinis and collabs with her sisters weren't enough, Kylie is launching a sunglasses line - and yep, it is GOOD. Even with the rise of slim cat-eye and vintage-like sunnies, which her sister Kendall loves, Kylie has always been a fan of the big and bold frames - as constantly featured on her Snapchat stories. So of course, her own designs wouldn't be shy of big & bold as well. The reality-star and entrepreneur is partnering up with Australian brand QUAY to launch the exclusive line this summer. And the sunnies' brand knew very well that if you're working with Kylie Jenner you got to deliver a show-stopping campaign (preferably that features that unbelievable waist-booty ratio): We're predicting these will sell out fast - it seems to be an ongoing theme with her, right?

Victoria & David Beckham take the family to celebrate Brooklyn's book launch. An exhibition of 'What I See' will transfer to LA in July. Victoria Beckham wore a navy suit from her own label, while David went for a charcoal fitted number in a fittingly dressy way to mark their son's launch. Brooklyn went casual in a Polo Ralph Lauren t-shirt and jeans. Cruz and Romeo joined their parents at Christie's for the exhibition of the photos, which will transfer to LA in July. Anais Gallagher and Liv Tyler were among the rock royalty to attend, but it was all about the Beckhams. Last year, Brooklyn Beckham announced he was to publish What I See, his first photography book. It features 300 pictures taken by Brooklyn and his friends, which include trips to Iceland and Cony Island, as well as candid shots of his famous family. The 18-year-old son of David and Victoria Beckham has taken snaps of his little sister Harper and even his mum throwing the peace sign - very Spice Girls. The pictures come with little captions about how they came about. This one of Romeo: "Didn't plan this photo-Romeo and I were waiting to see our little sister's ballet recital and we bought her flowers. I took this when we were waiting outside and I love it." Speaking of his photographs, Brooklyn told The Telegraph: "It was hard to get them approved. Took bloody ages. Most times, I'm secretive about taking them. If my mum sees me taking a picture, she kind of poses and stuff and I don't really like that. None of my photos are set - I like using natural light." Brooklyn has been a keen photographer for several years, previously working with Pull&Bear and shooting a Burberry fragrance campaign. He will be pursuing his talent at university in New York later this year. Brooklyn's publisher, Francesca Dow said: "Brooklyn Beckham's images inspire a generation across the globe, and this book will give his fans a broader insight into the world seen through his unique and creative perspective."

Justin Bieber's discarded shoe could land a lucky fan a few thousand bucks ... and there's still another one out there. Biebs took the Yeezys off his feet and hurled 'em into the crowd during a Sunday night concert in Germany. The lucky dog who nabbed the right sneaker already has it up on eBay ... for a starting bid of 5,000 euros (about $5,670 in U.S. dollars). The seller claims it's the original, and there are more pics to prove it, if needed. The description also says part of the sale will be donated ... but it's unclear to what. Bieber's left shoe is also online, but not for profit -- @theleftyeezy has more than 5,000 followers on Instagram. And if you're curious about JB's shoe size, here it is ... allegedly. (TMZ)

When JFK Jr. asked Carolyn Bessette to marry him, her response was not quite the one he had been expecting. While the Calvin Klein fashion publicist was eager to accept, she didn't want to make any specific plans. "She held the proposal off for about three weeks, which I think just made him all the more intent on marrying her," a close friend of John's tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story. The glamorous pair would ultimately pull off a top-secret wedding in 1996, but the marriage was to be tragically short-lived: On July 16, 1999, John, 38, Carolyn, 33, and her sister Lauren, 34, died in a plane crash off the coast of Martha's Vineyard. Now, 18 years later, friends are sharing intimate memories of the Carolyn they knew. "It's good to remember Carolyn," says her close friend RoseMarie Terenzio, who worked as John's executive assistant during his years running George magazine. "She would not want to be forgotten. Both she and John made a difference in their friends' lives." Passionate and fiery, "they would love hard, and they would fight hard," says Ariel Paredes, the granddaughter of Providencia Paredes, who had been an assistant to John's mom Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. "But they were very much in love." Although John, the son of President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline, had lived his entire life in the spotlight, Bessette struggled. "If someone was going to steal our prince, the press and the public wanted her to be some kind of unblemished princess," says John's friend, John Perry Barlow. But Carolyn was not one to be easily defined. "She was quirky and imaginative," says Barlow. "She was her own self. The woman everyone has read about it not at all as she was in real life." In the last few weeks of their lives, both Carolyn and John were under intense pressure. George was under financial strain and John was looking for a buyer. At the same time, Carolyn, "felt cornered," as Barlow recalls, by the constant presence of photographers outside their downtown apartment. But all of that paled in comparison to the couple's pain and sadness as they cared for John's cousin Anthony Radziwill, who was then dying of cancer. As John was in the process of writing his eulogy for the man whom he considered a brother, Carolyn would go to the hospital every night to bring Anthony his favorite soup from Il Cantinori and comfort his wife, Carole. "To say their marriage was on the rocks is just inaccurate," says Carole, who told the story of John and Anthony's close bond in her heartbreaking memoir What Remains. "Anthony's impending death was a strain on their marriage, no doubt. But it was a difficult time for all of us. If it weren't, we would be inhuman." Friends say the fact John and Carolyn were flying together to the wedding of John's cousin Rory Kennedy that weekend was a promising sign. "Carolyn decided to be with his family that weekend in the Cape -- to be together," says a John confidante. "And she would be with him in a safe and private place. That's what family means. And that meant something." And yet that final chapter was left unfinished when John suffered disorientation in the dark haze while piloting the fateful flight. "Had he not crashed the plane, it would have been a meaningless few weeks of tension," says the close friend of John's, "but it took on a life of its own because it was the last chapter of their life. One week they could have been at war, and the next week they could be right back in love -- we'll never know." Adds Terenzio, whose 2012 memoir FairyTale Interrupted chronicled her friendship with the couple: "John and Carolyn were incredibly unique. They were a warm and loving couple who handled their fame with humility and grace." Rory Kennedy, who spoke with PEOPLE on June 25 at the Nantucket Film Festival, where she premiered her new film on surfer Laird Hamilton Take Every Wave, says the couple's absence is still felt nearly two decades later. "I loved Carolyn," says Rory, whose wedding was postponed following the crash. "John was so love in with her and she played a significant role in our family. She was really loved by everybody. She continues to be sorely missed by all of us." (People)

Jay-Z Teases 4:44 Album With Mysteriously Titled ''Kill Jay Z'' Commercial. Never underestimate the genius that is Jay-Z. Earlier, the rapper, who recently added the hyphen back into his notable name, released a new commercial teasing his highly anticipated (and hyped) new album, 4:44, which drops on Friday. The 23-second commercial from Sprint and Tidal features striking imagery and a rather dramatic name, "Kill Jay Z," which is very likely a reference to Hova's recent name switch. The "Kill Jay Z" clip shows an African American teenage boy, sweating profusely as he runs through and alley with a t-shirt that has the words "Stay Black" across his chest in white letters. Dramatic music plays as sirens can be faintly heard in the background. The teen appears as if he's running for his life. Never underestimate the genius that is Jay-Z.

Dramatic music plays as sirens can be faintly heard in the background. The teen appears as if he's running for his life. Additionally, on June 18, Sprint released a teaser for the project, which featured a snippet of a new song titled "Adnis." The music man cast Oscar winner Mahershala Ali as a boxer and Danny Glover as a trainer. Set to footage of the actors, the 47-year-old superstar -- -- raps, "Letter to my Dad that I never wrote / Speeches I prepared that I never spoke / Words on a paper that I never read / Proses never penned / They stayed in my head." "Today is an exciting day to be a Sprint customer," Marcelo Claure, Sprint's president and CEO, said. "Jay-Z is a global icon and we're giving customers an incredible opportunity to be among the first to experience his new album." The "Empire State of Mind" rapper's last studio album, Magna Carta...Holy Grail, was released on July 10, 2013. In a similar fashion, the rapper debuted his album by partnering with a telecommunications service; Samsung subscribers downloaded the album before the general public could. The rapper will likely perform his new material during the Made in America Festival in Philadelphia Sept. 2-3, as well as the Meadows Music & Arts Festival in New York City Sept. 15. (Eonline)

Britney hits back at lip syncing accusations. Oops, she did *NOT* do it again. Britney has no time for haters. After all, she is freaking Britney Spears, right? The songstress is currently on tour around Asia and Israel, and had a sassy response to those lip sync accusations that just keep popping up. Before hitting the stage in Tel Aviv, the star had a phone interview with an Israeli TV channel and when she was asked about those lip syncing rumors she took the time to shut them down. "I'm glad you're addressing this question," she said. "It's really funny, a lot of people think that I don't sing live. Because I'm dancing so much, I do have a little bit of playback, there's a mixture of my voice and playback." After explaining how the playback works, Britney frustratedly added: "It really p*sses me off because I'm busting my a** out there and singing at the same time. And nobody ever really gives me credit for it." Britney's tour, 'Britney: Live In Concert', is almost completely sold out in Asia and has caused quite the reaction in the Israeli capital. So much so that the country has postponed its primary election from July 3rd to July 4th, due to the 'major event'. The power of Britters, huh? (British Glamour)

Calvin Harris called up a load of celebs to star in his "Feels" music. Is this the song of the summer? What do you get when you put Calvin Harris, Pharrell, Katy Perry and Big Sean on a "tropical island"? A song that could potentially be the sound of summer 2017, that's what. Yep, Calvin called up some of his A-list pals to create the hit "Feels" and it's pretty damn catchy. A little nostalgic, a little funky (think Kool & The Gang meets Chic) - it's an upbeat track that shows Perry stepping away from the larger-than-life vocals detectable in the likes of "Roar" and instead delivering a subtler, sultrier vocal. The track will appear on Harris' upcoming album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, which is due out on Friday. The record is set to be stuffed with collaborations. Frank Ocean, Khalid, Young Thug, Ariana Grande, Migos, John Legend, Snoop Dogg and Nicki Minaj are just some of the names. Will Taylor Swift be pissed that her ex is working with her arch-nemesis Perry? Who knows. One thing's for sure though - this collaboration was worth it. Expect to be singing all of the lyrics by EOP. (British Glamour)

One of Tupac's hits from the 90's features a singer who says she never got paid for her vocals, so she's suing ... even though it appears 20 years too late to collect. Natasha Walker -- who was in the R&B group Y?N-Vee -- sang backups on "Bury Me a G" and even has a credit on the track. But in docs, obtained by TMZ, she says she and Pac made a deal in '93 that the song would be a joint effort and she'd have equal ownership. Natasha says she's never seen a dime from the song's release ... hence her lawsuit. One potential problem for her: It's 2017 and the statute of limitations for contract claims in California is just 4 years. Walker's attorney, Jennifer Harris, tells us because the song continues to make money and will for the foreseeable future ... her client has every right to come-a-knockin' now. She wants all royalties, back and current, plus damages and attorney's fees. We've reached out to Tupac's estate ... so far, no word back. (TMZ)

Drake Announces Lineup For Eighth Annual OVO Fest. Now that summer is in full effect, it's just about time to starting amping up anticipation for the eighth annual OVO Fest. Drake dropped the performance lineup and flyer on Instagram on Tuesday (June 27), and although the performers are who you'd expect to be at the summer event, they're definitely worth copping those tickets for. PartyNextDoor, Majid Jordan, DVSN, and Roy Woods, will reportedly be performing at the 2017 concert, alongside Champagne Papi himself. The show will of course take place in Drizzy's homeland of Toronto for one day only. According to the social media announcement, tickets will go on sale this Friday (June 30). Drake is definitely in beast mode right now. Just one day before the OVO news, the rapper hosted the inaugural NBA Awards, delivering both a stellar and comical experience. On the music end, Drizzy assisted PartyNextDoor on the remix of his "Freak In You." It looks like summer '17 is his for the taking. OVO Fest kicks off on Aug. 7. (Billboard)

Dave Chappelle Adds Chance The Rapper, Lauryn Hill, & More To New York Residency. A night with Dave Chappelle at Radio City Music Hall seems like a gift all on its own.

Grenfell Tower Fundraising Single Set for Second Week at No. 1 in U.K., Radiohead Cruising to Albums Title. The all-star fundraising cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" (Syco Music/Sony) is on track for a second week at No. 1 on the U.K. singles chart as a cluster of star performers from last week's Glastonbury Festival prepare to crash the national albums survey. The Artists for Grenfell's fundraising single, recorded in response to London's Grenfell Tower fire tragedy, became the U.K.'s fastest-selling single of the decade as it raced to No. 1 last week from just 40 hours of sales, according to the Official Charts Company. At the midweek stage, "Bridge" has a lead of more than 13,000 downloads and streaming equivalent sales over the closest competition, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito" (Def Jam/RBMG/Republic/UMLE) featuring Justin Bieber. Another good-hearted project is flying high on the Official U.K. Singles Chart Update in "Smile For Bradley," proceeds from which will benefit the Bradley Lowery Foundation, established in honor of the terminally ill child Bradley Lowery. The track, a cover of Charlie Chaplin's "Smile" (Liv'n'G), is performed by Hartlepool duo Liv'n'G (aka Olivia Crawford and Georgia Fletcher) and is currently at No. 4. The clean-up from another successful Glastonbury Festival is well underway, though some of the high-profile performers at this year's event should clean-up when the albums chart is published this Friday. One of the beneficiaries of headlining Glastonbury 2017 is Radiohead, who lock-up No. 1 on the Official U.K. Albums Chart Update with the 20th anniversary reissue of their classic set OK Computer (XL). The prog-rocker's latest album A Moon Shaped Pool also returns to the top 40 (at No. 39) and their career-altering sophomore album The Bends finds its way back inside the top 75 (at No. 60). Another performer reaping rewards from their Glastonbury headline slot is the Foo Fighters, whose Greatest Hits (RCA) compilation returns to the top 10 (at No. 7), while Ed Sheeran should convert his closing performance by seeing all three of his albums inside the top 40 when the weekly chart is published. The Bee Gees' greatest hits set Timeless (Capitol/UMC) opens at No. 25 on the Chart Update after Barry Gibb's performance in the Sunday afternoon "Legends" slot at Glastonbury. The BBC's TV and online coverage of this year's festival achieved record viewing figures as nearly 21 million people tuned into the TV coverage for at least 3 minutes, a rise of 12% on last year, the Corporation reports. Meanwhile, U.S. alternative rock outfit Imagine Dragons open at No. 2 on the midweek U.K. chart with their third album Evolve (Interscope), while a reissue of Prince & The Revolution's Purple Rain (Paisley Park) re-enters at No. 5.

Alec Baldwin turned up to the NYC premiere of his new film "Blind" wearing a pair of sunglasses for the whole evening. In the film he plays a blind man, and at the Landmark Sunshine, we hear he actually had a severe eye infection. His wife, Hilaria, joked, "Don't tell anyone I beat him!" Baldwin didn't make it to an after-party, but director Michael Mailer, Demi Moore, Dylan McDermott and Maggie Q were spotted at Bagatelle taking in a performance by Ann Hampton Callaway. (Page Six)

Gal Gadot's not sweating her relatively paltry paycheck for her monster-successful "Wonder Woman" flick. We got Wonder Woman -- sans costume, shield, sword and Lasso of Truth -- with her hubby out in Bev Hills Tuesday. She seems content with the way everything played out ... at least on the surface. As we reported, we're told she snagged $300k for the movie, which has grossed $600,000,000 and counting. We broke the story ... Gadot's reps will absolutely go in to renegotiate her deal for new "WW" installments. We're told this will be a major renegotiation. Let's put it this way ... she shouldn't worry about buying stuff on Rodeo Drive. (TMZ)

Michael Bond, Creator of Paddington Bear, Dies at 91. The British author's books about the marmalade-loving Peruvian bear have sold more than 30 million copies, while the 2014 film adaptation is one of the most successful family films of all time. Michael Bond, the author of the books about much-adored children's character Paddington Bear, has died. He was 91. The news was announced Wednesday by his publisher Harper Collins: "It is with great sadness that we announce that Michael Bond, CBE, the creator of one Britain's best-loved children's characters, Paddington, died at home Monday at 91 following a short illness." A Bear Called Paddington, Bond's first book featuring the marmalade-loving and duffel coat-wearing Peruvian bear, was published in 1958. His latest, Paddington's Finest Hour, was published in April this year. So far, his books have been translated into 30 languages across 70 titles, with more than 30 million sold worldwide. Paddington featured in a BBC TV series in the 1970s and later in 1989 by Hanna-Barbera. But it wasn't until 2014 until he got his first big-screen outing. The film, produced by StudioCanal and with Ben Whishaw voicing the bear, would become the highest grossing non-studio family film, grossing more than $256 million. A sequel, starring Hugh Grant alongside returnees Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins, is currently in production and due for release in December. Bond had a cameo role in the first Paddington, playing a character listed only as the "Kindly Gentleman." (Hollywood Reporter)

TV

Ryan Seacrest met face-to-face in secret with ABC execs this week to hash out their remaining differences, and sources familiar with the situation tell us he's close to becoming the host of the reboot. As we first reported, Seacrest had agreed to a salary between $10 and $15 mil, but the hangup was that he wanted an Executive Producer credit but "A.I." execs said no. We're told they still haven't fully resolved the conflict, but that should happen. We're hearing the resistance is that Katy Perry wanted the title but couldn't get it, and the network didn't want to ruffle feathers. TMZ also broke the story 'A.I.' wanted Lionel Richie to join the judges panel, and our sources say it looks like the deal will be made and he'll get somewhere between $3 and $5 million. Our sources say 'A.I.' producers and ABC want Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue as the third judge and he will get less than Richie. TMZ broke the story, 'A.I.' signed Katy Perry for a whopping $25 mil. Our sources say when all is said and done, the show will still be on budget ... which is amazing. (TMZ)

Jenni ''JWoww'' Farley Is Totally Down For a Jersey Shore Reunion. Is JWoww ready to go back to the beach with her former Jersey Shore cast members? Sound like it! Jenni "JWoww" Farley sat down with E! News' Sibley Scoles and dished all about how she's totally down to do a Jersey Shore reunion with her former MTV party animals. When Sibley asked the reality star about a possible reunion with her old crew, Jenni admitted that's very much a possibility. "I've actually been texting the creator of Jersey Shore," she teased. The 31-year-old said she's said to the creator, "How do we make this happen? But I need to be in bed by 9 p.m. I have to take my family and don't let me get white-girl wasted so I can't find where my family is. So if you can help me out with those, I'd be down." The mom of two did admit that these days she can no longer party with the best of them. "We're old and boring now," she admitted. She also said that her dream reunion wouldn't be a long season, that it would actually be "10 days filming on an island somewhere!" Not a bad dream to have! Jersey Shore first crashed into MTV on Dec. 3, 2009. The final episode aired on Dec. 20, 2012. The OG cast featured Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Sammi "Sammi Sweetheart" Giancola, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Vinny Guadagnino and Angelina Pivarnick. Deena Nicole Cortese joined the show in 2011. After leaving the show, Jenni got engaged to her longtime boyfriend Roger Mathews in September 2012. She announced via Twitter on Christmas 2013 that she and her fiance were expecting their first child. The reformed party girl gave birth to a daughter named Meilani Alexandra Mathews on July 13, 2014. The duo got married on October 18, 2015 and at their over-the-op reception, the reality star announced that she and her hubby were expecting their second child. Jenni gave birth to their son, Greyson Valor, on May 5, 2016. You can see Jenni's new life in the mom lane on Jenni and Roger: Domesticated by Awestruck, and her series with fellow guidette Snooki, Moms with Attitude, which is on go90. "From the club to the crib, Snooki and JWoww of Jersey Shore fame are swapping bottle service for bottle feeding. As always, these two keep it real and filter free as they navigate the crazy new world of motherhood," says the show's website. (Eonline)

The Bachelorette Week 5 Part 2: A Total Bloodbath. Buh bye, Lee. Thankfully, the rest of this week's terrible two-on-one was not as terrible as we feared. Lee went home almost immediately, but first he got in one last lie about how he definitely didn't tell Rachel that Kenny dragged him out of a van. Rachel realized he was not to be trusted, and with no punching and no more yelling, he was gone. He wasn't actually gone, since he really just kept sitting there with those fuzzy pillows, but that was good for Kenny, because Kenny had to delay his helicopter ride with Rachel to go close things out with Lee. Rachel was confused by this, but Kenny explained that he just needed closure and to say everything he wanted to say. That's fine. As long as we never have to hear from Lee ever again, everything's cool. Rachel still needed a moment with Kenny, and they had a lovely little moment, if a bit awkward. However, we're worried that Kenny might have been overly stressed by everything that happened with Lee, and he broke down a bit during a video chat with his daughter. After Rachel returned to the other dudes, it was rose ceremony time. She knew exactly what she wanted to do, and that was to send Anthony and Josiah home. We cry for Anthony, but the "abundantly confident" Josiah has been annoying for weeks. He did not take his elimination well, but that's to be expected. Rachel then went on a one-on-one with Eric, who was so excited to finally have time with her that he just kind of unleashed his entire personality at once. They clearly had a lot of fun at their carnival, and then Eric told Rachel about how he always wanted his mother to love him, and she never showed that to him. They had a lovely little conversation about expressing emotion, and seemed to genuinely have a good time together. Eric got the rose, and it's been such a long week of awkward one-on-ones that it felt really good to watch him get that rose. For the next group date, a bunch of the guys got to dress up like vikings and fight each other. It was a fun time, and it ended with a showdown between Kenny and Adam. They were both bleeding by the time Kenny knocked Adam out of the ring and won, but Kenny was obviously thrilled as they crowned him viking king. After the viking fight, Rachel and Bryan reunited. They both missed each other sooooo much, and Rachel thinks he really gets her, flaws and all. She also chatted with Kenny, who expressed a bit of uncertainty about staying when he really wanted to go home to his daughter. Rachel ended up encouraging him to go home, and it was one of the sweetest, saddest breakups of the season so far. They had more chemistry in that goodbye than she has had with almost all the guys so far, but it made complete sense that Kenny needed to go home. The group date rose ended up going to Peter, who didn't stand out to us any more than he stands out to us any other time, so not sure what that's about. Rachel and Will went to Sweden (from Denmark) on their one-on-one, but something was missing between them. It wasn't quite Jack Stone levels of creepy awkward, but something was very off, if you ask Rachel. If you asked Will, it was the best date ever. Will had already discussed with one of the other guys how he doesn't typically date black girls, and so that's what he opened with when Rachel asked him what kind of girl he was into. He said it was because he grew up in a predominantly white area, and Rachel said she also grew up in a predominantly white area, but she mostly dated black men. It got real awkward after that. Rachel told Will that she felt like they were good friends, but not more than that. Will admitted he probably focused on the friendship more than the romance, and he left peacefully. Then, it was time for yet another rose ceremony, and Rachel was really not looking forward to saying goodbye to yet another dude. She cried, she quoted Shakespeare, and she had to take a moment to collect herself down the hallway. In the end, she sent Alex away, meaning there are only six guys left: Peter, Eric, Bryan, Dean, Adam (and AJ), and Penguin Suit Matt. The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC. (Eonline)

Hulu Acquires 'Find Me in Paris' For U.S. The streamer has nabbed the rights to Cottonwood and ZDF's tween dance drama. Find Me in Paris will be found on Hulu in the U.S. The streaming giant acquired the English-language dance drama produced by France's Cottonwood Media, the sister-company youth arm of Marseille producer Federation Entertainament, and Germany's ZDF. The tween-targeted drama is the first TV series to film inside Paris' legendary Opera Garnier. The location is not only central to the story, but the opera house creative teams will be integral to the production and will assist on both costume design and choreography as well as feature its dancers. And with a budget of $12.5 million (€11 million), it aims to bring premium drama production values to a younger audience. The half-hour drama is set to be "exciting and romantic" with a time-travel love triangle. Paris centers around a budding ballerina who jumps from 1905 to present day where she becomes involved with an underground hip hop crew. As she begins to develop ties to the modern world she is forced to choose between time periods and find out where -- and when -- her loyalties lie. "We are delighted to start a new relationship with Hulu, which has been so original and distinctive in its programming choices. We are confident that Find Me in Paris will be a part of Hulu's explosive growth in the SVOD industry, while also finding the perfect place to connect with and inspire American kids," said Cottonwood Media president David Michel. Paris comes from creators and executive producers Jill Girling and Lori Mather Welch, the duo behind Nickelodeon's RIDE. It's produced by Cottonwood's Michel, Zoe Carrera Allaix and Cecile Lauritano and Federation's Pascal Breton. The show pre-sold to France, Australia, Belgium and Italy at MIPTV. Find Me in Paris starts shooting in mid-July for six months. (Hollywood Reporter)

Jeff Lewis is really flipping out now. With a brand new baby, a full roster of high-maintenance clients and a multitude of home renovations to head up, the famously volatile house flipper is facing his toughest juggling act yet in the tenth season of his Bravo series. And even Zoila's fabulous dance moves can't calm the beast within. The arrival of Lewis and partner Gage Edward' daughter, Monroe, born via surrogate, brings joy to the clan, the realities of life with a newborn quickly take their toll on the couple. "That first night she came home and she screamed, that started the next three months of 'holy s -- , what did we do?'" Edward says. A series of passive aggressive Post-It notes, verbal spats and jabs about becoming "a single dad" hint at problems that go deeper than Lewis' usual fiery temperament. "I thought about going to see an attorney and just preparing myself," he admits. "If this gets worse, and I don't want to do this anymore, what does that look like?" Tune in to the premiere of Flipping Out August 17 at 9:00 p.m. EST. (People)
