Topher Grace and Wife Ashley Hinshaw Expecting Their First Child. Eric Forman is going to be a dad! Former That '70s Show star Topher Grace and his wife, actress Ashley Henshaw, are welcoming their first child together, E! News can confirm. Rumors began swirling over the weekend when 39-year-old stepped out with his actress wife, whose bodycon, striped dress revealed that the 28-year-old may be expecting a wee one in the near future. The two were spotted grabbing some grub together at the Sweet Butter Kitchen in the Sherman Oaks area of Los Angeles on Saturday. The War Machine star and his blushing bride have been married a little over a year. The pair married on May 29, 2016 in a private Sunday evening ceremony. E! News reported at the time that the couple wed near Santa Barbara, Calif. Prior to the wedding, the Interstellar actor told E! News that his leading lady was in control of the special ceremony, but he was excited for the big day to come. "I don't do any wedding planning," he said. "It is not up to me... I'm just going to show up." While the couple has tried to keep their relationship away from the public eye, E! News confirmed days before the 2015 Golden Globes that Topher had proposed to his girlfriend after more than a year of dating. This is Topher's first time as a dad but he may have gotten some training as the godfather to Jaime King's son James Knight (Oh and his godmother is actually Jessica Alba!). The Hart of Dixie actress revealed the news on Instagram back in 2014, when she posted a photo of little one's godparents, writing, "So grateful for our baby #JamesKnight to have such loving Godparents. Thank you for being there for us and the love of our lives." It's about to be time to put that godparent training to the test! (Eonline)

Jessica Alba Is Pregnant! Actress and Cash Warren Expecting Baby No. 3. Jessica Alba's family is growing! The actress and standout business entrepreneur is expecting her third child with husband Cash Warren, she announced on Instagram Monday. Alba, 36, is also a mom to two daughters, 9-year-old Honor Marie and 5-year-old Haven Garner. "@cash_warren and I are officially going to be outnumbered #babyonboard #herewegoagain #blessed," she captioned an adorable video with her daughters holding up balloons that read "1, 2, 3." The brunette bombshell appeared to showcase her growing baby bump while paddle boarding on a recent family vacation in Hawaii. Jessica sported a fedora and sheer white maxi dress over a printed bikini while out on the open water. An eyewitness told E! News Jessica refrained from sipping alcohol while relaxing on the beach with her longtime husband. Jessica, who parlayed her career into co-founding The Honest Company in 2012, has always made her family a major priority, and recently discussed the ups and downs of balancing motherhood and career with E! News. She shared, "Well first off, you feel bad when you realize they are wearing shoes that hurt them because you're like, 'Oh, I didn't even realize that you've been wearing shoes that are too small for you for like 3-4 months, my bad." "Some of those milestones or moments, you want to be there for every single one and it's not realistic when you're working, but for me, that's what gets me," Alba shared. "Even the everyday little things like picking them up from school are a big deal, so I drop them off at school most mornings and try to get home for bedtime. But the weekends is really when I get to spend the time with them." Back in 2012, Jessica was the subject of pregnancy rumors, but speculation was quickly shut down by the Sin City star's rep. At the time, she addressed the possibility of welcoming more children during an interview with Access Hollywood. She called her non-toxic household goods company her "third baby," adding, "I'm happy with my two girls... Down the road in five or 10 years, who knows, but for right now, I'm good." Exactly five years later, and it appears Jessica and Cash are ready to expand! One look at 38-year-old Warren's Instagram page and it's clear he's the most doting dad to his little girls. On Honor's ninth birthday, the business man dedicated a heartfelt post to his daughter. "Having you has taught me how to appreciate the here and now," he wrote in part. I can't afford to wish for tomorrow because I know I'll miss today. You are kind, thoughtful and fair. You are smart, creative and driven. You're not afraid to lead but more importantly you're not afraid to listen. Keep it up my champ! You're doing great." Congratulations to the entire family! (Eonline)

Jamie-Lynn Sigler Is Pregnant! Actress Expecting Baby No. 2 With Cutter Dykstra. Congratulations are in order for Jamie-Lynn Sigler! The Sopranos star announced Tuesday that she has another little one on the way. It seems the actress wanted to be extra sure, so she shared a photo of five positive pregnancy tests. "This is the actual pic I sent my husband this past Mother's Day while lying on the bathroom floor. I had just returned from Israel, was jet lagged, and didn't believe my eyes. So had to obviously be @Clearblue 5x over sure. We are SO excited to announce the #ClearblueConfirmed arrival of another little one in just a few short months" the Clearblue sponsor captioned the photo. This baby marks the second child for Sigler and her husband, baseball player Cutter Dykstra. They became parents for the first time in 2013 with the birth of their son, Beau Kyle Dykstra, who is now 3 years old. According to Us Weekly, she is currently four months along. However, the actress did fear that her multiple sclerosis diagnosis would get in the way of a second pregnancy. "In the back of my mind, I was worried about if my medical problems would interfere with getting pregnant," she told the magazine. "But within the first month we found out we were!" However, as she told E! News in May, Sigler felt like it was the time to try again. "When I was pregnant with my son, it was in remission," she said of her MS, which she was first diagnosed with when she was 20 years old. "[Getting pregnant] was glorious and it's an amazing thing to happen for women living with MS. I welcome it and my doctors welcome it. I think we just figured out that it might be the right time." It was definitely the right time for the star, who learned she was pregnant less than two weeks later. Congratulations to the couple! (Eonline)

Baby No. 4 Is on the Way! Cristiano Ronaldo Confirms Girlfriend Georgina Rodríguez Is Pregnant. There's another baby on the way for Cristiano Ronaldo! On the heels of his twins' birth, the soccer star confirmed that his model girlfriend Georgina Rodríguez is pregnant. When asked by El Mundo whether he was happy about the baby on the way, he replied in Spanish, "Yes, very." His girlfriend of nearly a year raised eyebrows last week when she appeared in a family photo on her beau's Instagram account in a bikini with what many suspected was a baby bump. Rodríguez, 22, and Ronaldo, 32, have been publicly dating since November 2016 and are currently vacationing in Ibiza. Last month, the athlete confirmed the arrival of his son Mateo and daughter Eva when he shared the first photo of the newborns on social media. "So happy to be able to hold the two new loves of my life," he captioned a sweet shot of himself cradling the two babies. He became a father for the first time in 2010 when he welcomed his son Cristiano, whose mother has never been revealed. "With the agreement of the mother, who wishes to remain anonymous, I will have exclusive custody of my son," he announced on social media at the time. The mother of the twins has also not been identified and it has been widely reported that the twins were welcomed via a surrogate. Congratulations to the couple! (Eonline)

Figure Skaters Meryl Davis and Fedor Andreev Are Engaged! Their Cutest Moments Away From the Ice Rink. There's a new piece of bling on Meryl Davis and it's not an Olympic medal.

Kate Mara & Jamie Bell share the first picture from their wedding. GLAMOUR's resident basic bitch with an Instagram obsession (follow me: @LeanneBayley). Fluent in emojis & Gilmore Girls trivia. Kate Mara and Jamie Bell have officially got married. The Fantastic Four co-stars met in 2014 while on set and have been dating since 2015. Jamie took to Twitter to share his joy, captioning a sweet snap of the newlyweds: "Me & Mrs B". Kate shared the same photo with the caption: "Nuptials". Kate previously spoke to Jimmy Fallon about her wedding and revealed she isn't a huge planner: "I don't love planning. I like planning in my life in general, but wedding planning, I'm just not that interested. Like, 'What kind of spoon do you want on the table?' I'm just so uninterested, but Jamie is very interested." She added: "I will say, 'I don't care', and he will immediately give a response of exactly the color and the shape - well the shape is obvious." She did say she had her dress under control though due to the help of stylist Johnny Wyjek: "It's taken care of. It's not totally done yet. But yes, very easy, all because of [Johnny Wujek]." "I knew the designer. I knew before we really said it out loud. I knew in my head it was going to be that one. We both agreed. We knew what it was. Without saying what it is, we knew what it was." Mara also opened up about what it's like dating someone else in her industry: "I think in our business, it's always a little bit tricky to navigate things because it's not like a normal job where you know where you're going to be the next year, let alone the next day. You just don't." Jamie was formerly married to American actress Evan Rachel Wood for 19 months but that ended in May 2014. The former couple share a 3-year-old son together who has not been publicly named. Kate formerly dated actor Max Minghella from 2010 to 2014. Congrats to the newlyweds. (British Glamour)

Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup Are Dating: Reports. Life is imitating art for Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup. The actors, who play spouses on the Netflix series Gypsy, are now dating in real life, according to Page Six and People. A rep for the 48-year-old actress didn't respond to Page Six's numerous requests for comment Monday, and a spokesperson for the 49-year-old actor had no comment. Watts and Crudup arrived hand-in-hand at a cafe in Tribeca over the weekend. An eyewitness told Page Six the couple "looked happy and were laughing a lot, then left again holding hands." The actors have known each other for several years. It's unknown when things turned romantic for Watts and Crudup. In Vogue Australia's June issue, however, the actress said she was "single" after her 11-year relationship with actor Liev Schreiber ended in 2016. "I'm co-parenting," Watts, a mom of two boys, added. "I'm doing OK." After her breakup with Schreiber, Watts told the magazine, "There are good days and bad days." The amicable exes remain on "great terms," of course. "We're trying to do our absolute best for the sake of the children, and we hope to keep moving forward in that way. "He's a fantastic dad, a wonderful, wonderful man, and we still want the absolute best for each other." (Schreiber, for his part, was briefly linked to Morgan Brown in May.) A month earlier, Watts told Red magazine that the idea dating was daunting. "It just seems completely frivolous and counterproductive and just not really in my world right now," she said. Perhaps if things get more serious with Crudup (whose exes include Claire Danes and Mary Louis Parker), Watts will share some couple pictures via Instagram. "People are going to try and interpret stories of mine in their own way, whenever they want to. Through the work I do, through what they read, through this story, through how I've represented myself in some speech I haven't done a great job of, or through a paparazzo I've lost my temper with and given the finger to. There's constant scrutiny and judgment," the actress recently told The Guardian. "And [Instagram] is a little way of doing it in safety, in my own time, in my own controlled way." (Eonline)

Jenny McCarthy Proves She's Donnie Wahlberg's Biggest Fan With Romantic Love Letter. Donnie Wahlberg's got the "right stuff" for Jenny McCarthy! The funny lady took to Instagram on Monday to show her love for her husband of almost three years, posting a lengthy tribute to her main man as he finishes his three-month tour with his legendary boyband New Kids On The Block. The 47-year-old music man, who also stars on the CBS Blue Bloods, has been touring with his former crew of cuties as part of the Total Package Tour, which features NKOTB, Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul -- and clearly his lady love is totally fangirling her hubby, posting a kissing photo of the two of them along with the sprawling caption, which begins: "A love letter to my husband, Donnie Wahlberg." The post continues, "For the past three months I have watched you pour out your heart and soul. I have seen you give hundreds, if not thousands, of hugs. I've seen you make every person you came into contact with feel like they were somebody special, because you do believe they are special." The blonde continued to gush, "You have entertained all of us. You have tipped hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars to hardworking people in Waffle Houses across the country. I've seen you get on a plane to work at Blue Bloods all day, only to get on an airplane that very same day to go perform your heart out at your concerts. Back on a plane then again... and repeat." The proud wife went on, "I've seen you do all this all while making sure your fans felt appreciated. That our sons felt loved. And that your adoring wife felt cherished." Just last week, Wahlberg left a Waffle House waitress a $2000 tip on an $82 bill. The actor posted a photo of the receipt on social media and wrote, "My mom waited tables, and my dad tended bars-- for years! So, when I walk into a #WaffleHouse, and the staff treats me like a king, you better believe I treat them like queens! Thanks to the team at @wafflehouseofficial Charlotte, NC!" Clearly Jenny wasn't lying (or the only one who is completely enamored) about her hard-working hubby. Right after the 44-year-old posted her touching Insta tribute, Donnie tweeted, "Bad news -- #TotalPackageTour is over. Good news -- Finished 14 hour day of shooting #BlueBloods in time to watch #TheBachelorette w my wife." We feel ya, Donnie. Who doesn't love The Bachelorette? (Eonline)

Guess Which Twin Was First! Rumi and Sir Carter's Birth Details Revealed. Rumi Carter will always have bragging rights over her little brother. That's right -- Beyonce's newborn daughter was first to be born, E! News has learned. However, while Rumi arrived at 5:13 a.m., Carter also made it into the world before the clock struck another minute. As for their mysterious birth date, E! can confirm they were born on June 13. Unlike their famous parents and big sister Blue Ivy Carter, who all have middle names, the newest members of the Carter family only have first and last names, so those "Sir Carter Carter" rumors can be put to rest. Their Grammy-winning mama first raised questions about their middle names when she shared their first photo online a month after the birth. "Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today," Beyonce captioned the shot that immediately broke the Internet. It didn't take long for fans to wonder about Bey's caption and whether or not Carter appeared in Sir's name twice. Logistics aside, the Carter family is clearly thrilled about their new bundles, including Blue. As an insider told E! News, the 5-year-old is loving the babies and being a big sister. The source said that she helps Beyonce take care of the little ones and, despite all the attention being paid to the twins, Beyonce and Jay-Z are making sure to give a lot of love to their oldest and play with her often. From the sound of it, they're all crazy in love with the little ones! (Eonline)

Billy Crystal Tears a Rib Muscle After "Violent" Sneeze. Billy Crystal had the wind knocked out of him. The longtime comedian appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night, but according to the host, the visit was long overdue. Crystal was scheduled to drop by the set last month, but had to cancel after suffering what the star called the "weirdest injury ever." As the Comedians star described to the audience, he was dozing off in a chair when he suddenly experienced a "violent" sneeze. "If it was a cartoon, my arms are flying off my body, my eyes are coming out of my head, people in the room are now naked because it blew their clothes off," the animated star continued. Crystal fell back asleep, but woke up about two hours later because he couldn't breathe. Turns out he had torn a rib muscle. "It's not an injury you want to brag about, " he quipped. "I didn't rescue a woman out of a burning car. I didn't catch an orphan falling out of a burning orphanage... I sneezed." Moral of his story? Sneeze with caution. In Crystal's defense, he suffers from allergies, including one to different kinds of chocolate. "I once sneezed 58 times before my nose started bleeding," he recalled to Kimmel. He even turned his malady into a profitable talent in college when his roommate advertised his hidden ability to their dorm neighbors and started bidding. "Finally we get to 63 sneezes...and I made $250," Crystal noted. He was later asked by a fraternity member if he could come sneeze at one of their events. The rest, as they say, is history.

UPDATE: The Shooter actor took to Twitter to explain his injury didn't happen on set. "Hey, guys. i didn't injure myself doing a stunt or anywhere near the set of shooter. i was the victim of a freak accident during a family outing on Sunday," he wrote on Twitter on Monday, July 17. "My leg is badly broken & required surgical attention, but i will make a full recovery, am in good hands, and will be back in action soon." Ryan Phillippe certainly didn't have a relaxing Sunday. The actor shared a photo of himself in a hospital bed on Sunday, July 16, after injuring his leg. The 42-year-old actor gave a thumbs up in the Instagram shot, despite being hooked up to IVs and sporting a large bandage and metal splint on his right leg. "I'm going to be ok & i appreciate your concern. -me," Phillippe wrote. He also posted a shot of himself eating Jell-O in bed as well as a close up shot, seemingly in pain. No word on what caused his injury, but he's been busy filming Shooter, his USA network series, this summer. Phillippe plays Bob Lee Swagger, a former Marine sniper who tries to foil a plot to kill the president. Earlier this month, the star admitted that filming has been intense. "This season is a bigger story, a lot more moving parts, and, you know, it's a tough show to shoot," he told PopSugar. "The last two weeks we've been in the desert, Palmdale [California], you know, in degrees over 110. And it's a physical show, and I do all of my own stunts." Phillippe is father of daughter Ava, 17, and Deacon, 13, with his ex-wife, Reese Witherspoon. The exes split in in 2007 after 8 years of marriage. (US Weekly)

Ed Sheeran Deletes Twitter After Game of Thrones Cameo. What happened to Ed Sheeran's Twitter profile? The singer-songwriter deleted his Twitter account not long after HBO's Game of Thrones fans mocked his cameo in the Season 7 premiere. Sheeran, 26, has yet to explain why his account vanished, but the timing is curious: its disappearance occurred less than 24 hours after he appeared on the series. He guest-starred as a Lannister soldier, who sang a campfire song and offered Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) some grilled rabbit. (The actress is a fan of his in real life.) E! News has reached out to Sheeran's rep for comment. Last month, the "Shape of You" singer told The Sun he had "come off Twitter completely" because of incessant cyber-bullying. "I can't read it. I go on it and there's nothing but people saying mean things," he shared. "One comment ruins your day. But that's why I've come off it." Sheeran -- who went on a self-imposed social media hiatus before recording his album Divide -- later clarified his quotes via Instagram, writing, "I haven't quit anything. I'm just not reading anything, except Harry Potter." Days later, during an appearance on Today, he told Matt Lauer why he stopped looking at Twitter. "They made such a big deal about this. I got asked in an interview if I read negative things. I was like, 'I don't even go on Twitter and read 'em.' It's not like I've quit it; I still post on Instagram and it goes to Twitter. I'm just not going to wake up and read something and be like, 'Ugh, well that's rude.' I don't want to choose to do that anymore." The singer, who is on a worldwide tour, will return to the small screen on a different network this fall; Sheeran announced Monday that he'll guest star in an episode of Fox's The Simpsons. "This year continues to be equally surreal and amazing," he wrote on Instagram. "Watch out for this one, me and Lisa have a whole thing going on." (Eonline)

Aaron Carter Wants to Take a Lie Detector Test After DUI Arrest: "Everything Will Come to Light Very Soon." Aaron Carter is lawyering up. On the heels of his Saturday arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence and pot possession, the 29-year-old singer is focused on sharing his side of the story. As a source told E! News, he and his girlfriend Madison Parker, who was also taken into custody for alleged drug-related offenses, will be hiring an attorney. "They are looking at Phaedra Parks," the insider said of the Bravo reality star. According to the insider, the couple thinks Parks would be a good fit. The source also added that Carter is interested in sitting down for a lie detector test as soon as possible. In the meantime, according to his rep, the show must go on for the star. "The tour is continuing, which everyone is very happy about. They are in Alabama right now and everything is moving forward," his rep told E! News. "They have a show tonight, so he'll do the show tonight and then a meet and greet with fans tomorrow." While his older brother Nick Carter said publicly that he did not have Aaron's number, his brother maintains that Nick's wife Lauren Kitt Carter does have his digits. Regardless, "this is a family matter and he wants to keep that part of it private," Aaron's rep added. "Right now, he's just trying to get by day to day. He doesn't want to disrespect authorities, but he's going to be honest about what happened. Everything will come to light very soon." The child star and his girlfriend were arrested on Saturday in Georgia. The singer was charged with three misdemeanors -- DUI, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and possession of drug-related objects, police records showed. Parker was also charged with possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and possession of drug-related objects, as well as obstruction of law enforcement officers. Carter's bail was set at $4,610, while Parker's was set at $4,360. Carter was released on bond Sunday afternoon while E! News learned his girlfriend posted bond Sunday evening. Late Sunday night, the star revealed family tension when he called Nick's digital words of support into question. "If my own blood truly cared about my well-being, why wouldn't he call me directly and have a conversation instead of making this about him through a very public forum? That's not cool at all to use me for his PR and kick me while I am down. I love my family despite it through thick and thin," Aaron said in a statement released on Twitter. In the statement, he also offered his own explanation of Saturday's events. "Aaron's been traveling non-stop doing promotions on his latest hit single 'Sooner or Later' across the southeast when his automobile had a new tire put on it and it went out of alignment," the statement included. "Aaron drove the vehicle to the nearest Auto Zone in Cornelia, Georgia. After being at the store and requesting help to get his alignment fixed, he was arrested inside by several police officers with aggression. The police also revoked his rights to have an attorney." "Aaron holds a medical license for medical marijuana for his long standing anxiety. He feels his 'celebrity' was targeted and an attorney will be retained in this matter. The video from Auto Zone will prove that Aaron was not in a moving vehicle while arrested and charged with a DUI," he alleged in the statement. By Monday morning, Aaron returned to Twitter with more comments on the matter. "Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim," he wrote. "Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself." (Eonline)

The fluff is flying on "The Muppet Show." The daughter of the Muppets' creator, Jim Henson, brutally slammed the ousted puppeteer behind Kermit the Frog, saying that his firing had been "long overdue." On Monday, the Muppets Studio said that it had let Steve Whitmire -- who had performed Kermit since Henson croaked in 1990 -- go because of "unacceptable business conduct over a period of many years," saying, "He consistently failed to address the feedback." But in a Facebook post, Henson's daughter and Jim Henson Co. board member Cheryl Henson said that Whitmore got the green furry boot because his "performance of Kermit has strayed far away from my father's good-hearted, compassionate leader of the Muppets." Cheryl argued that Whitmire had turned Kermit into another Oscar the Grouch, saying, "Steve performed Kermit as a bitter, angry, depressed victim." Twisting the knife, she wrote, "Worst of all, in the past few years he had not been .?.?. funny or fun." No wonder Miss Piggy dumped Kermit in 2015. Cheryl called the dismissal "long overdue" and implored Whitmire to "stop with the pity party." Whitmire told the Hollywood Reporter that he felt that he had been canned because execs "felt [he] had been 'disrespectful' in being outspoken on character issues" with creative staff. Truly, it's not easy being green. (Page Six)

THE OTHER STUFF . . .

Gwyneth Paltrow's long-gestating Go-Go's musical -- "Head Over Heels" -- got a beat closer to Broadway on Sunday with a party for the show at her Hamptons home. We hear guests at the East Hampton bash included her mom Blythe Danner, kids Apple and Moses, Tony-winning director Michael Mayer and the Go-Go's guitarist Charlotte Caffey. "It was a friends and family thing," explained Donovan Leitch -- Paltrow's pal and ex-boyfriend, who's producing the show with Paltrow, Rick Ferrari and Christine Russell -- when reached for comment. "It was billed as a tea party, but it was rose all day," Leitch joked. Musical arranger Tom Kitt and Caffey led a round of classic Go-Go's tunes at the reception for the show, which we hear is eyeing the 2018-2019 Broadway season. An "investors one-sheet" has started making the rounds to woo backers and begins with: "This project is a dream come true for me. I hope you will join us on this very exciting journey. -- Gwyneth." A version of the pitch seen by Page Six also included a particularly Paltrowian-sounding "Mission Statement" reading: "As Producers, responsible for promoting content relevant to the universal Human Experience, we feel an obligation to stand on the right side of History, to promote progress toward inclusion, and to defend the basic rights of all human beings. We seek to empower you to follow your heart, and to realize that the beat of your own heart is echoed by a universal beat that makes us all one." Pretty deep for "We Got the Beat." Leitch told us the verbiage has been dropped from the pitch. "Look what happened to Tom Cruise in 'Jerry Maguire' and his mission statement," he quipped. "Really what the show is about is inclusion and gender equality," he said. "It is a fun, irreverent musical comedy for all genders. We decided it was better to just say that in person." The period piece is set in 1590 to the band's 1980s tunes. (Page Six)

Bella Thorne and Scott Disick are just friends, The Duff actress told Jenny McCarthy during an interview on her SiriusXM radio show on Monday, July 17. While recalling their headline-making trip to Cannes, France, in May, Thorne also told McCarthy that she wasn't privy to any of the drama between Disick and his ex-Kourtney Kardashian. "I was never with him sexually," Thorne, 19, told McCarthy. "I've never seen Keeping Up With the Kardashians ... I don't follow up with any of that." In fact, Thorne is friends with Kylie and Kendall Jenner. "I'm very friendly with Kylie and Kendall ... as far as I'm know we're [super] chill. I didn't have any problem with them," she added of the famous family members that come along with hanging out with Disick. As previously reported, Thorne left Cannes after just one day of partying with Disick, 34, after he was spotted hanging out with a bevy of other models, including his ex-girlfriend Chloe Bartoli. "Yo this #cannes fancy life isn't for me," Thorne tweeted at the time, sparking rumors of a feud with Disick. After returning home to Los Angeles, however, the pair reunited and sparked romance rumors once more when they were seen attending Lana Del Rey's birthday party together at 1 OAK West Hollywood nightclub on June 22. During an interview with Complex magazine in June, Thorne maintained that Disick isn't for her. "Scott is really nice, sweet, charming. I don't drink, and he really drinks a lot. And it just ended up ... I just wasn't down," she told the magazine of their short-lived rendezvous. "I was like, 'I gotta leave.' I love to go out and have fun, I love to f--king dance, but I just don't party hardcore like that and it was way too much for me. I was like, 'Woah, this is not the way I live my life, bruh."

Mike Vick says Colin Kaepernick should chop off his afro and go with a more "clean cut" hairstyle if he really wants a shot at playing in the NFL again. Vick laid out his strategy for the QB during an appearance on FS1's "Speak for Yourself" -- saying Kaepernick needs to change his appearance to something more "presentable." Vick says he loves Kaep to death and says he wants the guy to rehab his image so he can play in the NFL again. He also believes Colin is mainly unemployed due to poor play and not because of his National Anthem protest. "First thing we got to get Colin to do is cut his hair." -- @MikeVick advises Kaepernick on rebuilding his image pic.twitter.com/YENvUPOIgP. (TMZ)

'Billions' homeowner charged with assault in attack on teen. Private equity investor Michael Loeb -- who owns the sprawling waterfront mansion featured in the Showtime TV series "Billions" -- was busted for allegedly breaking a teen's nose, Southampton cops said Tuesday. Loeb, 62, was charged with misdemeanor assault shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday and released without bail following the incident at his swank summer home, which was first reported by The Post. Avery Arjang, 18, told The Post he was invited to a charity benefit for special-needs kids by one of Loeb's sons, and brought along two pals. Loeb became enraged and punched Arjang in the face after one of the friends drunkenly urinated, vomited and passed out in his garage, prompting Loeb's wife to call for an ambulance, Arjang said. "Michael was furious because this kind of ruined his event," Arjang said. In addition to suffering a broken nose, the teen said was later diagnosed with a concussion, and his lawyer has threatened a "major lawsuit" against Loeb. "If Michael Loeb gave my client a bloody nose, when we get to court, we're going to give him a bloody nose," lawyer Michael Griffith said. Loeb is scheduled to be arraigned in Southampton Village Court on Aug. 8. His lawyer didn't return messages Monday or Tuesday. (PageSix)

The Red Hot Chili Peppers aren't retiring anytime soon, at least not according to Flea -- but it might depend on who you ask in the band. The legendary bassist was in Switzerland -- where RHCP's headlining the Paleo Festival -- and we asked him about the big rumor that this could be their last tour. Flea says that would be news to him, and anyone else in the band, because they've made no plans to hang it up. The retirement buzz started after drummer Chad Smith went on the 'Eddie Trunk Podcast,' and revealed a convo he and Flea had about life on the road. Sounds like Flea's laughing that off now, 'cause he's clearly still about the music ... even at 54. (TMZ)

Wes Scantlin didn't let a thunderstorm ruin the night for a bunch of Puddle of Mudd fans ... after the rest of the band's flights got canceled, he whipped out a one man show instead. PoM was scheduled to play in Hartford Friday but Wes, who flew separately, was the only one who managed to get in town, while his bandmates were stuck in Baltimore. Normally, it's Wes missing flights or derailing shows -- but he decided to wing it with an acoustic guitar ... since the only other option was canceling the gig. We got footage of him playing PoM's "Blurry" ... which some fans said sounded Kurt Cobain-esque. We're not going that far, but good on Wes for powering through. (TMZ)

Kendrick Lamar Changes Fan's Life With Wheelchair-Accessible Van. Kendrick Lamar's music has touched millions of fans. But it's the TDE standard bearer's heart that made news over the weekend. Lamar spent some time with fan Jennifer Phillips backstage during the Dallas date of his DAMN. Tour on Friday (July 14), giving her the gift of a modified van that will help her get around... and to his next Dallas show. Phillips, a quadriplegic, injured her spinal cord a decade ago in a car accident and launched a GoFundMe campaign in April to help raise money for the van; it raised more than $4,000. Lamar met with Phillips and revealed that he'd paid for the van and gifted her with a jacket featuring a personal note that read: "Thank you for always supporting me. You're an inspiration for me. You are strong and positive. Your kind and beautiful. For all the years of inspiring me, the least I can do is make sure your comfortable driving the city. A gift from me to you. Your always appreciated! -- K. Lamar." Jennifer couldn't say enough about how much the generous gift meant to her. "If you know me or even just look in my Instagram profile for two minutes then you know I am a huge Kendrick Lamar and TDE fan/supporter for YEARS," she wrote. "I was a big fan of music and concerts before my injury but I never supported and loved a label like theirs before. Of course they have great music but they are also great people. None of them have ever treated me like a stranger or a charity case lol. I didn't meet them because I'm in a wheelchair... Their music and shows were enough for me. But this is amazing and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love you all and always will. Thank God for you Kendrick and I will continue to pray for you. And like I said, next time I'm driving myself to your show lol. Thanks to the whole team! #tde" (Billboard)

The Vamps Could End Ed Sheeran's U.K. Chart Reign. It's been another eventful week so far for Ed Sheeran. The British singer-songwriter appeared in a guest role on the series 7 season-opener of Game of Thrones (not all reviews were glowing), then shut down his Twitter account just a day later. According to the Official Charts Company, Sheeran might also lose his chart crown. British pop group the Vamps is leading the midweek chart with Night & Day (EMI), their third album, with Sheeran's Divide (Asylum) trailing in second place. Night & Day is a two-part project, the second of which -- the Day Edition -- is due to drop in December 2017. Meanwhile, new entries from London duo Oh Wonder (Ultralife at No. 3 via Island) and English MC Bugzy Malone's (King Of The North at No. 4 via Ill Gotten) crack the top 5 on the Official Charts Update as Rag 'N' Bone Man's former chart-leader Human (Best Laid Plans/Columbia) holds at No. 5. X Factor series 6 winner Joe McElderry is hovering just outside the top 5 with Saturday Night at the Movies (BK Records). McElderry's fifth studio album begins at No. 6 on the midweek chart, just one place above a new, posthumously-released John Denver collection. There's movement at the top of the Official Singles Chart Update as "Wild Thoughts" by DJ Khaled featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller (Black Butter/We The Best) switches places with "Despacito," by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber to grab No. 1. Just 1,300 combined sales separate the two singles, the OCC reports. If "Wild Thoughts" stays put when the Official U.K. Singles Chart is published this Friday, it'll give DJ Khaled his second No. 1 and Rihanna her ninth. (Billboard)

R. Kelly's vehemently denying explosive allegations that he's the mastermind behind an abusive "cult" that subjects women to sex slavery. A rep for the singer tells TMZ, "Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him. Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such accusations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name." A BuzzFeed report paints R. Kelly as a monster who allegedly housed 6 women in Chicago and Atlanta and controlled their everyday lives -- from when they can shower, eat and use the restroom to how they can dress and engage in sexual encounters. TMZ has confirmed cops in Georgia and Illinois conducted welfare checks for one of the women ... at her parents' request. According to docs, obtained by TMZ, the woman told deputies she was fine and "did not want to be bothered with her parents because her father was threatening people." (TMZ)

R. Kelly's been challenged to a showdown in court ... from the father of one of Kelly's alleged captives, Joycelyn Savage. Tim Savage responded to the video TMZ posted of his daughter. As we first reported ... Joycelyn insists she is not being held against her will, and wants her family to stop contacting her. But Savage says the video proves his point ... especially because Joycelyn would not say where she is currently. In denying the allegations, Kelly's camp said they would go after his accusers -- but Savage says bring it on. As for Joycelyn's claim she's just fine -- her father told us, "I'm praying for you, baby." (TMZ)

Johnny Depp, Charlie Sheen and Kevin Dillon Have Platoon Reunion 31 Years Later. Once a platoon, always a platoon... It's been over 31 years since Oliver Stone's classic 1986 film Platoon hit theaters. Three of the movie's stars, Johnny Depp, Kevin Dillon and Charlie Sheen, who were budding young actors at the time, may not be fresh faces in Tinsel Town any more, but they're definitely famous ones and it looks like they're still hanging tough -- together. Earlier Monday, Dillon, who went on to star in HBO's Entourage, posted a photo of the trio's reunion on Instagram. In the fun photo, the trio appear to be partying down at Depp's home in the Hollywood Hills. Depp is pictured smoking while wearing a Johnny Cash shirt, Dillon is smiling wide and Sheen wears a bright red Hawaiian shirt. Dillon captioned the photo, "Platoon 30 year #reunion last night at #johnnydepp house #goodtimes @charliesheen." The movie, which won the Oscar for Best Picture in 1987, follows a young Vietnam recruit, Private First Class Chris Taylor, played by Sheen, as he faces a moral crisis when confronted with the horrors of war and man's duality. In the iconic film, Dillon played "Bunny." Depp took on the role of the translator Lerner. Interestingly enough, much of Depp's work in the movie was actually left on the cutting room floor. From getting chopped to blockbuster superstar Jack Sparrow, Depp's had quite the cinematic ride since 1986. Prior to Platoon, Sheen had appeared in several smaller films like Red Dawn, Lucas and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, but had not nabbed a major role in a major film yet. But all that changed when he was cast in Stone's star-making vehicle. In 1987, Sheen took on the role of Bud Fox in the director's next film, Wall Street, and he cemented his short-lived place as one of Hollywood's leading men during the 1980s. Sheen's had some major career, health and addiction ups and downs since the '80s, but at least judging from the snap, he's still having a grand old time... Meanwhile, Dillon went on to appear in a host of small-budget films and television roles, working consistently over the decades. But it wasn't until he nabbed the role of Johnny Drama on Entourage in 2004 did the actor get some major notoriety. A plethora of other young talent signed on for Stone's controversial anti-war flick, which scored a total of four Oscars. Platoon also starred Tom Berenger, Keith David, Willem Dafoe and Forest Whitaker Stone himself even had a small and uncredited cameo. Platoon was Stone's first in his trilogy of Vietnam War films, which included Born on the Fourth of July (1989) and Heaven & Earth (1993). (Eonline)

Todd Haynes to Get Locarno Film Festival Honor. Todd Haynes will receive the prestigious price at the festival on August 7. The Locarno film festival will celebrate American director, writer and producer Todd Haynes with an honorary Leopard award. He will get the prestigious Pardo d'Onore Manor prize on Monday, Aug. 7. The festival will also screen his latest work, Wonderstruck, alongside Poison, which originally screened in Locarno in 1991. Haynes, often exploring America in the 1950s, continued his career with Julianne Moore in Safe (1995), Far from Heaven (nominated for four Academy Awards in 2002) and Wonderstruck (2017), and Cate Blanchett in I'm Not There (2007) and Carol (nominated for six Academy Awards in 2015). Wonderstruck, which premiered in Cannes earlier this year, is a simultaneous story of a Midwestern boy and a girl in New York from 50 years ago in search of the same enigmatic connection. It is being released in the U.S. on Oct. 20. "His characters-often with extraordinary performances by the female leads- bring back the magic of great cinema, of art that achieves the sublimation of reality without lapsing into disenchantment," said festival director Carlo Chatrian. "His latest, splendid film Wonderstruck is another fine example, a journey into a cabinet of curiosities where fear and desire merge in the accuracy of a twofold historical reconstruction." Locarno70 runs Aug. 2-Aug. 12. (Hollywood Reporter)

South Korea Opens World's Largest Imax Cinema. CJ CGV has also dedicated a screen to 'Oldboy' director Park Chan-wook at the Yongsan I'Park Mall near the U.S. military base in Seoul. South Korea's largest exhibitor CJ CGV on Monday opened the world's largest Imax theater in Seoul, featuring a screen measuring 31 meters wide and 22.4 meters high. Though Australia has been home to IMAX screens up to over 35 meters wide, they are currently not in use. Even when including the Australian screens, which are currently getting renovated, CGV's new Yongsang I'Park Mall branch near the Yongsan U.S. military base in central Seoul is the largest Imax screen among multiplex cinemas across the globe. It is about five times the size of screens found in the average multiplex cinema. A high-resolution projector presents pictures about 50 percent brighter and twice as clearly, at an aspect ratio of 1.43:1, according to CGV. The cinema also presents "4DX With ScreenX" -- a cinema experience that combines both the multisensory moving chairs of 4DX and the panoramic three-screen presentation of ScreenX. This is the first theater in the world to combine the two widely exported South Korean technologies. All 40 seats feature a new "sway & twist" motion technology, which includes a wider range of movements, including switching directions, super acceleration and drifting. CGV has dedicated one of the multiplex's screens to local indie films. Named after Oldboy auteur Park Chan-wook, it is designed to present only art films. Part of the ticket sale proceeds will go to supporting the South Korean indie industry. Photographs taken by Park himself are on display in the hallway leading to the theater. Seo Jung, CEO of CJ CGV, told reporters during the opening ceremony that he sees the new Yongsan I'Park branch as a prime example of the "post-multiplex age," and promised to "continue to lead the evolution of cinemas through groundbreaking innovations."

Sharon Tate's sister is trying to calm Jennifer Lawrence's fans -- instead of saying J Law isn't pretty enough to play Sharon ... she just thinks she's not the right kinda pretty. Debra Tate's been getting blasted on social media ever since her now infamous comment to us about Jennifer potentially filling the Sharon role in Quentin Tarantino's Manson murders movie. She tried to walk it back with Team J Law, but there's still some brutal honesty. Deb did admit even her first pick, Margot Robbie, might not be right for the job. For the record, she's reached out to Quentin about the movie. Debra controls the rights to Sharon's likeness, and therefore wants to discuss her sister's portrayal. (TMZ)

A TV Show Based on Mariah Carey's Life Is Happening. Get excited, Lambily! Mariah Carey's life is set to become a fictionalized TV drama, E! News has learned. Starz is developing the currently untitled project, with the music superstar set to serve as an executive producer alongside her friend, Brett Ratner. The drama would be written by Nina Colman and be set in 1968, chronicling the rise of an ambitious bi-racial 16-year-old in New York City who would go on to become the biggest selling female music artist of all time after surviving a difficult upbringing. Colman would act as showrunner, while Stella Bulochnikov, Carey's manager, would also be an executive producer. Other EPs include Ugly Betty's Teri Weinberg and Horrible Bosses' John Cheng. Carey first rose to fame in 1990 with the release of "Vision of Love," and has since sold more than 200 million albums worldwide and had 18 number-one singles. She's also acted in films such as The Butler and Precious, and made her directorial debut in 2015 with the Hallmark Channel Christmas movie, A Christmas Melody, which she also appeared in. Most recently, Carey had her own docu-series on E!, Mariah's World, and she's set to go on a world tour with Lionel Richie this summer. Deadline first reported the news of Carey's show. (Eonline)

Alec Baldwin to Star in NBC's Live 'A Few Good Men. Alec Baldwin should remain in the zeitgeist for at least a little longer. Fresh off his two Emmy nominations for his defining turn as President Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, Baldwin is set to star in another NBC production: a live staging of Aaron Sorkin's A Few Good Men, with Sorkin writing and the net's go-to event producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan attached to executive produce. Baldwin will play Col. Nathan Jessep, a role made famous by Jack Nicholson in the beloved 1992 film, which also starred Tom Cruise along with Demi Moore and Kevin Bacon. The televised play will air in the second quarter of 2018, and will mark the first live production of a Broadway drama in more than 50 years. In recent years, NBC, under the direction of entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt, has been aggressively expanding its live output, but the emphasis has been on musicals (Peter Pan, The Wiz, Hairspray, Sound of Music) until now. "No stranger to live television, Alec is the most multifaceted actor in the world and his range is incomparable. He will put his own inimitable stamp on the role of Col. Jessep in a play that is still as surprising and relevant as ever, from one of the most gifted writers working today," said Greenblatt of an actor whom he calls "the gift that keeps on giving at NBC." Before SNL, Baldwin earned accolades and Emmys for his work as Jack Donaghy on the comedy 30 Rock, also on NBC. Sorkin's first pass at A Few Good Men came at age 26, when he wrote the stage play that premiered on Broadway to immense critical acclaim in 1989. Three years later, he adapted the play as a feature, and that, too, went on to receive heavy attention, including an Oscar nomination for best picture. NBC first announced Sorkin would be taking a fresh look at the project in March 2016, but the casting process (along with Sorkin's schedule) is said to have caused delays. "Alec is one of our greatest actors," Sorkin said of finally landing his star. "Having him play this role -- live onstage for a television audience -- is a dream come true. This will be a brand-new take on Nathan Jessep, and I expect that Alec is going to bust through TV screens and right into living rooms." The famed play takes place in Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 1986 and centers on newbie military lawyer Lt. Daniel Kaffee, who comes up against the formidable Col. Jessep when he is asked to defend three Marines on trial for murder. El Dorado Pictures' Mallory Schwartz and Storyline Entertainment's Mark Nicholson will also produce the NBC iteration, which will also count Baldwin and Sorkin as exec producers. The telecast will be produced by Universal Television in association with Sony Pictures Television and Warner Bros. Television. Baldwin is repped by CAA. (Hollywood Reporter)

'Walking Dead' Resumes Production After Stuntman's Death. The move comes five days after a fatal accident took the life of John Bernecker. The Walking Dead on Monday resumed production of season eight, an AMC spokesperson confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter, five days after the on-set death of stuntman John Bernecker. On Sunday, castmember Pollyanna McIntosh posted on Instagram that production would resume the next day. "As I prepare to work again tomorrow I'm again thinking of John's friends and family and of John," reads the post, also on Twitter. "My heart goes out to you all and to the rest of your set family and families who've known John and his art." AMC president Charlie Collier flew in from Los Angeles to be on set Monday for the production's resumption, sources told THR. Bernecker died in an accident when he fell from a balcony and struck a concrete floor at least 22 feet below, missing protective padding by what a witness told a Coweta County, Ga., sheriff's deputy was "just inches." On Friday night, AMC offered condolences and also provided a statement from showrunner Scott Gimple. "John Bernecker's family has decided that he will be removed from life support, following organ donation," said the AMC statement. "We are deeply saddened by this loss and our hearts and prayers are with John's family, friends and colleagues during this extremely difficult time." Said Gimple: "Our production is heartbroken by the tragic loss of John Bernecker. John's work on The Walking Dead and dozens of other movies and shows will continue to entertain and excite audiences for generations. We are grateful for his contributions, and all of us send our condolences, love, and prayers to John's family and friends." As THR previously reported, a statement posted on the website of organ donor network LifeLink described Bernecker's family as "heartbroken" and "devastated by their loss." The family itself has not spoken publicly, and the statement also said that the family "requests privacy during this time as they say goodbye to John." July 17, 5:17 p.m. Updated with the news that AMC president Charlie Collier was on set Monday. (Hollywood Reporter)

Below Deck's Season 5 Trailer Is Full of Fighting, Hook-Ups and...a Yacht Crash?! What's a yacht captain to do when his crew proves to be less than capable of doing most things expected of them? We'll soon find out. When Below Deck returns to Bravo for its fifth season this September, fan favorite Captain Lee Rosbach will have his hands full with a greener-than-usual crew as he leads the 154' mega-yacht Valor around the Caribbean. You think we're exaggerating? Check out the first look at the new season, exclusive to E! News. One phrase no one ever wants to hear while aboard a yacht: "Did we hit something?" But that's exactly what's asked when an attempt to dock results in the Valor, well, hitting something. "That anchor drop was f--king embarrassing and I should put a bag over my goddamn head," Capt. Lee is seen telling the crew. As returning senior deckhand Nico Scholly puts it, "My deck crew is greener than a Leprechaun's dick." Well, alrighty then. It isn't all inexperienced deck crew problems in season five, though. There will still be plenty of hooking up and dramatic feuding. Choice moment from the supertease? When returning chief stew Kate Chastain talks up her off-boat escapades with a handsome sailor who looks a bit like a certain Biblical figure. "I will sleep with Jesus on a sail boat," she says in a confessional. "What would Jesus do? Me." Again: Alrighty then. Joining the returning trio are Matthew Burns (chef), Brianna Adekeye (stew), Jennifer Howell (stew), Chris Brown (deckhand), Bruno Duarte (deckhand) and Baker Manning (deckhand). Expect Brianna to make waves as she becomes the object of affection for not one, not two, but three men among the crew during the season. What will break this crew first: That love square or their captain? Considering Capt. Lee's forced to "re-configure," our money's on the latter. Below Deck returns for season five on Tuesday, Sept. 5 at 9 p.m. on Bravo. (Eonline)

New Teen Mom 2 Star Briana DeJesus Confronts Boyfriend's Possible Mistress in Season 8 Premiere. Welcome back, Briana DeJesus. The Teen Mom 3 star officially made her debut as a cast member of Teen Mom 2 in the season eight premiere on Monday night, and since viewers last saw Briana, she's been raising her five-year-old daughter Nova, who she had with her ex Devoin Austin, with help only from her mom and sister, Brittany. But in the MTV hit's premiere, we learn the 23-year-old is pregnant with her second child, with boyfriend Luis, who is still in the picture...but might be cheating on Briana, who gave birth to their daughter Stella on July 2. While out to eat, Briana's friend Shirley said her cousin had told her she knew a girl who was sleeping with Luis. "I don't want to overthink it because it could be absolutely nothing, but it's suspect," Briana said. "It's super suspect. I'm pregnant and you're doing something with this girl." The girls then look to see if Luis had liked any of her Instagram posts (he did) before Briana deciding to text the girl and ask her the last time she hooked up with Luis, wanting to see if it was before or after Briana learned she was pregnant. Instead of answering the question, the girl wrote back, "Can we talk on the phone?" The episode ended with Briana about to answer the girl's phone call, meaning we'll have to wait until next week's episode to learn the nature of her relationship with Luis. Earlier in the episode, Briana and Luis discuss how they met and the unexpected pregnancy, with Briana admitting, "This pregnancy was the last thing I expected to happen." As for how the couple met, it was at a club, with Luis revealing that they learned Briana was pregnant "not even a month later." "When I first found out, I was more like well, we don't really know each other. Maybe it's best if we do get an abortion, but you're very supportive," Briana said to Luis, who is 31 and has an eight-year-old child from a previous relationship. And when she asked if he was ready to take care of Nova and a newborn, Luis said, "I'm all in it...I'm ready." Prior to the cheating allegations, Briana and Luis were planning on moving in together, along with her daughter, Nova. Teen Mom 2 airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on MTV. (Eonline)

'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Premiere Sets Ratings Record for U.K.'s Sky Atlantic. The episode drew about 2.83 million overnight viewers. The season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones set a new overnight audience record for pay TV giant Sky's Sky Atlantic network in the U.K. The season opener drew about 2.83 million viewers for the 2 a.m. London time simulcast of the U.S. premiere on HBO and the 9 p.m. regular airing, according to overnight U.K. ratings data reported by Sky.

Including people who recorded the simulcast, 2.04 million people viewed it.
