Pop the champagne! Brittany Daniel is married. The Sweet Valley High star announced the news via Instagram on Sunday, July 30. "My heart is exploding!" the 41-year-old wrote. "Yesterday was the best day of my life when I married my best friend @adamtouni." Daniel and her husband, Adam Touni, said "I do" in L.A. on Saturday. They first revealed they were engaged in December 2016. "I said yes! My world just became brighter today," the actress captioned an Instagram pic of the two -- and her new diamond rock -- at the time. "#engagement #christmas #love #proposal #marinheadlands #family @adam.touni." Daniel celebrated her Bachelorette party last month. The star and her sister, Cynthia Daniel, are best known for playing Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield, respectively, on Sweet Valley High for four seasons from 1994 to 1997. Cynthia is married to Good Will Hunting actor Cole Hauser. The couple have three children. (US Weekly)

Blake Lively Insists Her Life Isn't as "Perfect" as It Looks. Blake Lively hates that people think she lives a "perfect" life. In Glamour's September issue (on newsstands Aug. 8), she explains why it's a troublesome notion. "It's nonsense. It simplifies people. Not all men, but a subsection of men, have a desire to understand and control women. To do that, you have to paint them into this thing you can wrap your head around," the 29-year-old All I See Is You star argues. "But women are complex." When people see pictures of the actress and her husband Ryan Reynolds walking red carpets, or see them making various talk show appearances, she hopes they realize "that what you see in the media is not real life." That's partly why she gets "complete anxiety" before interviews: "'How is this person going to spin me?' So when you read, 'Oh, she's got a perfect life,' or 'Her life is crumbling' -- they pick narratives for everyone," Lively explains. "And the narratives stick." Lively implies that she and Reynolds are often presented as characters, rather than a real couple with real problems. "We're really shy people who express ourselves best when we're acting, when we're hiding as someone else. So the fact that very shy people have to share that shy person with the world -- and are sometimes hurt by it -- it's very weird emotionally," she says. But make no mistake: Lively doesn't want pity, noting that they're "champagne problems." In an effort to take back control of their own narratives, Lively and Reynolds regularly show off their sillier sides on social media. Noting her husband's tweets in particular, she jokes, "He may as well work for the Enquirer. When he says 'my daughter,' he's never, ever talking about her. Everything is a completely made-up scenario. He'll run them by me sometimes just to make me laugh. But oh, I'm so in love with him when he writes that stuff. I mean, I'm in love with him most of the time, but especially with that." Getting "defensive" over her word choice, Lively explains, "If I say, 'I'm so in love with him all the time,' then you get that eye-rolling, 'Oh, her life is so great, she's so perfect...'" So, she'll often downplay things -- it's her "defense mechanism." How do the actors -- who tied the knot in 2012 -- deal with conflict? "In other relationships, if something came up, I would call my girlfriends or my sister, and say, 'Hey, this is what he did -- what should I do?' Where with him, we were friends for two years before we were ever dating. And I treat him like my girlfriend. I'm like, 'Hey, this happened. It upset me. This is how I feel. What do I do?'" Lively reveals. "And he does the same for me. He treats me like his best buddy." Luckily, the two never really fight over dueling schedules. "We don't work at the same time," says Lively, who will produce and star in The Husband's Secret. "I admire people who find that what fulfills them is their art or their work, but what fulfills both me and my husband is our family. Knowing that, everything else comes second. We've each given up stuff we loved in order to not work at the same time. I'm fortunate to be in a place now where I get to find the material -- a book or script -- early and develop it. I know ahead of time that I'm going to be working on this job at this time. And we can plan around it." Lively and Reynolds have always viewed each other as equals, and together, they're raising their two daughters to become strong, independent women. "With my husband, I'm lucky to have someone who is so conscious. My husband was like, 'Why do I always say he?' And I said, 'That's what we're taught.' So, he'll pick up a caterpillar, and instead of saying, 'What's his name?' he'll say, 'What's her name?' Or we've joked that my daughter is bossy. But my husband said, 'I don't ever want to use that word again. You've never heard a man called bossy,'" the former Gossip Girl star tells Glamour. "There would never be any negative connotation for a man being a boss, so to add a negative connotation on a woman being bossy? It's belittling. And it doesn't encourage them to be a boss. So, do I know how to be the best parent for a daughter? No, I have no idea. All I can do is share what I'm thinking -- and learn from others." (Eonline)

Following the death of his mother, Marc Anthony was reminded that he was "surrounded by love" from his kids. Jennifer Lopez, who was married to Anthony for seven years before they split in 2011, shared an adorable photo on Instagram Saturday showing her ex cuddled up to his six children -- the former couple's 9-year-old twins Max and Emme as well as his children from previous relationships with Debbie Rosado and Dayanara Torres. "Just what the doctor ordered... Surrounded by love," Lopez captioned the photo. The 48-year-old singer continued in Spanish, "You rest in Peace Ginny ... we'll miss you." The post was similar to a photo Lopez shared just one day before with another father figure in her kids' lives: her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez. "This... " the Shades of Blue star captioned the cute moment with the retired baseball pro smiling with Max, Emme and his two daughters from a previous relationship: 9-year-old Ella Alexander and Natasha Alexander, 12. Lopez and Rodriguez, 42, have been nearly inseparable since PEOPLE confirmed their relationship in March, blending their families together for holidays and at a handful of pool parties this summer. "They have almost been together for six months now, but Jen says it feels like longer," a source told PEOPLE of Lopez and Rodriguez's relationship. "She is very happy -- Alex takes great care of her. She loves dating him. Their families still get along. Things are easy and fun." "He loves family and so does she," a source who knows both stars told PEOPLE in April. "For Jennifer, family comes first." An insider added in May: "The kids all get along and it's just one, huge happy family." Anthony, 48, announced via social media that his mother Guillermina Quinones passed away on Thursday afternoon. "Today at 12:10 PM my family's hero, our rock, our protector, inspiration and now ANGEL passed away. She left in peace, accompanied by all your prayers and well wishes for which we thank you all," the singer said. "Mami, I'm going to miss you so much!" Several days earlier, the singer asked his followers to pray for his mother, but he did not specify why. "Please pray for my mom today. I love you mommy," was the last message that Anthony tweeted. The details on the death of Quinones remain unknown. (People)

Somebody can't stand the heat. "Hot felon" Jeremy Meeks has disabled the comments on his Instagram account after getting criticized over his divorce and new relationship with Topshop heiress Chloe Green. Meeks -- who earned his nickname in 2014 after his good-looking prison mugshot went viral -- has 1.3 million followers on Instagram and posts photos of himself on modeling assignments and rubbing shoulders with celebs including Nicki Minaj and John Stamos. But fans are not able to do more than "like" the pics after Meeks changed his settings over the weekend, possibly after seeing hundreds of comments slamming him for cheating on his wife, Melissa Meeks. The 33-year-old, who served a 27-month sentence for possession of a firearm and grand theft, made his runway debut at New York Fashion Week in February this year and was spotted kissing Green in early July. Melissa subsequently announced that she was filing for divorce from her husband of eight years after being blindsided by the news that he was cheating on her. "Some random person I don't know sent a direct message with the photograph of my husband kissing that woman," she told the Daily Mail in an interview on July 8. "I went into shock. I felt nauseated. It was like a bomb had gone off and my whole world had been blown apart." Melissa went on to delete all pictures of the father of her son, Jeremy Jr., 7, from her Instagram account after the former gang member flew to Europe with Green, 26. The new couple haven't been holding back on the PDA and have been spotted kissing everywhere from a luxury yacht in Turkey to a pool in Los Angeles. While the pair flaunt their romance, Melissa took to Instagram earlier this week to slam her estranged husband, sharing an empowering message. "I fed mouths that talked s--t about me," the post read. "I wiped tears from the same people that caused mines. Picked up people that tried to knock me down. Did favors for those who couldn't do s--t for me. Been there for the ones that left me. Crazy? Maybe, but I don't lose myself in the hatred of others. I continue to be me because I can't change who I am. Life ain't easy, but through all the bulls--t I still remain solid. Because I know God got big plans for me." (US Weekly)

Princess Diana's closest friend tells Channel 4 to scrap documentary over private videotapes. The documentary uses private video tapes in which Diana discusses her sex life with Prince Charles. One of Princess Diana's closest friends is calling on Channel 4 to cancel a documentary marking the 20th anniversary of Diana's death which uses private video tapes in which she discusses her sex life with Prince Charles. Rosa Monckton will write to the channel to say that a series of confessional videos that Diana made during a speech coaching course amount to therapy, and that using them would be an "intrusion" and "outrage" against Diana's right to privacy. Diana's brother, Earl Spencer, has also reportedly demanded that the program be dropped as it would hurt Prince William and Prince Harry, however Channel 4 has said that the recordings were "an important historical source". The video tapes, recorded at Kensington Palace in 1993, are highly controversial because they were recorded in private encounters with her public speaking coach, Peter Settelen and feature Diana's thoughts on the royal family and her life and romances. "This doesn't belong in the public domain," Monckton told the Guardian. "It is a betrayal of her privacy and of the family's privacy. I certainly don't think they should be broadcast. The [tapes] should be dispatched to the young princes." She added: "It was like therapy, what she was doing. I was around at that time. It was very wrong of him to ask all those leading questions and it was naive of her to have agreed to do it, but nonetheless it was like a therapy and therapy should remain private."

Sam Shepard, Pulitzer Prize Winner and Oscar-Nominated Actor, Dead at 73. Sam Shepard has died. The Oscar-nominated actor and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright passed away on Thursday at his home in Kentucky, the New York Times reported. As a spokesman for the Shepard family confirmed to the newspaper, the star suffered complications from Lou Gehrig's disease. Shepard was 73 years old. As famous off camera as he was in front of it, the star first earned his stripes in the theater world as an off-off-Broadway playwright and later wrote more than a dozen films, a few of which he also directed. He made his debut in front of the camera in 1970 and rose to fame as a prominent actor with roles in The Right Stuff, Steel Magnolias, Days of Heaven, All the Pretty Horses and more recently in Mud and August: Osage County. Meanwhile, fans of newer generations knew him as Noah Calhoun's father in The Notebook or as the narrator in Charlotte's Web. He made his final film performance in this year's thriller Never Here. Shepard earned an Oscar nomination in 1984 for his performance in The Right Stuff while his turn as Dashiell Hammett in the 1999 TV movie, Dash and Lilly, garnered him a Golden Globe nod. He was nominated for three Pulitzer Prizes for Drama for his plays Fool for Love, True West and Buried Child, the third winning in 1979. Shepard is survived by his three children, Jesse Shepard, Hannah Shepard and Samuel Shepard. He had Hannah and Samuel with Jessica Lange, whom he lived with for more than two decades before their separation in 2009. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.

Jeanne Moreau, Legendary French Actress, Dies at 89. Her brooding beauty entranced international film audiences in such films as 'The Lovers,' 'Jules et Jim' and 'The Bride Wore Black.' Jeanne Moreau, whose brooding beauty entranced international film audiences in such films as The Lovers, Jules et Jim and The Bride Wore Black, has died at the age of 89. The French president's office announced her death without providing a cause. Dubbed "Le Moreau" for her slithering sensuality, she was a femme fatale who was also one of the top stage actresses of her time. Offscreen, Moreau oozed romance and mystery: She was likened to the free-spirited woman with two lovers whom she played in Francois Truffaut's Jules et Jim. She burst to international stardom in Louis Malle's The Lovers (Les Amants) in 1958. The story of a woman who deserts her husband for a younger man, the film was controversial for the times and banned in some U.S. cities. Flaming her notorious image, Moreau next played in Roger Vadim's Les Liaisons Dangereuses, which was also censored in several towns in France. It was briefly banned from export not for its sexuality, but for its unflattering depiction of French diplomats. Moreau was one of the most sought-after actresses in the world and performed in an array of films with leading directors, including Jules et Jim (Truffaut), The Trial (Orson Welles), Eva (Joseph Losey), Peau de Banane (Marcel Ophuls), Renoir, La Notte (Michelangelo Antonioni), La Baie des Anges (Jacques Demy), Moderato Cantabile (Brook), Diary of a Chambermaid (Luis Bunuel), The Sailor From Gibraltar (Tony Richardson), Querelle (Rainer Werner Fassbinder). She won the best actress award at Cannes in 1960 for her starring role in Peter Brook's Moderato Cantabile. More recently, she played in Map of the Human Heart (1992) and The Proprietor (1997). Her personal life proved to be as captivated as her onscreen performances. "When I am in love, it influences my pleasure in acting," she told Playboy in 1965. "Most people don't have the energy for passion, so they give up and go to the movies." In 1976, Moreau wrote and directed Lumiere, which focused on four actresses. She also directed L'adolescente in 1979, which won critical acclaim. In 1997, she directed a third film, Solstice. Moreau was born in Paris on Jan. 23, 1926, the daughter of an English chorus girl and a French bartender. She studied at the Conservatoire National d'Art Dramatique. In 1947, she began in La Terrasse de Midi at the Avignon Festival. In 1948, at age 20, she became the youngest ever member of the repertory theater La Comedie Francaise, where she first appeared in A Month in the Country. She spent four years with the Comedie Francasie, and among other plays, she was in the original production of Andre Gide's The Vatican Caves. She left the Comedie Francaise in 1953 and joined the Theatre National Populaire, where she appeared in such plays as Le Cid and The Prince From Hamburg. In 1953, she appeared in The Shining Hour at the Theatre Antoine and also played in Jean Cocteau's The Internal Machine and Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion. In 1957, she played Maggy in Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, directed by Peter Brook. She began her film career with a role in Dernier Amour. After a number of nondescript roles, she won her first strong notice as a prostitute in Jacques Becker's Touchez-Paul au Grisbi. In 1957, Malle sported her in a French theatrical production of Cat on a Hot Tin Root and cast her in his first feature film, Ascenseur Pour L'echafaud (Elevator to the Scaffold), which was released in the United States as Frantic. Moreau served as president of the Commission d'Avances of France's Centre National de la Cinematographie. She served as president of the jury at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival. She was married to William Friedkin from 1977 to 1979 and previously to Jean-Louis Richard. (Hollywood Reporter)

THE OTHER STUFF . . .

Kate Middleton Stuns Again in Alexander McQueen Dress She Wore to Princess Charlotte's Christening. Kate Middleton may be royalty but she's certainly not above wearing the same outfit twice, and why should she be? The mother of two's got one of the most fabulous wardrobes in the world -- so it's no wonder that the 35-year-old would choose to re-wear some of her favorite pieces time and time again. Earlier, the Duchess joined her husband in Belgium for the official commemorations marking the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele. At the event, Prince William spoke at the Menin Gate monument in Ypres. For the ceremony, William wore a regal blue suite and red and blue tie. Meanwhile his lady love opted to wear a stark white Alexander McQueen coat dress, the very same one that the Duchess of Cambridge wore to daughter Princess Charlotte's christening on July 5, 2015. While the main piece was the same, Kate wore a different fascinator and added a poppy broach, as well as grey pumps and matching purse. The event was in honor of three months of conflict in 1917, which resulted in more than half a million casualties, 325,000 Allied soldiers and 260,000 to 400,000 Germans, in the Belgian battlefields. According the BBC, William said in his speech, "Members of our families; our regiments; our nations; all sacrificed everything for the lives we live today. During the First World War Britain and Belgium stood shoulder to shoulder. One hundred years on, we still stand together, gathering as so many do every night, in remembrance of that sacrifice."

A legend opens up. Feud actress Jessica Lange got candid about her family, career and finding happiness in an interview with AARP The Magazine's August/September issue, and Us Weekly has the exclusive first look. The 68-year-old actress, who made her feature film debut in 1976's King Kong, has received worldwide acclaim for her many performances -- winning her first Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in 1982's Tootsie. "Tootsie turned out to be the best film I ever made. And to win my first Oscar for it was thrilling, not terrifying, the way it might be today. The awards were more casual then. You did your own hair, you did your own makeup. It wasn't the fashion event of the season," she told the mag. But when asked about roles available for older women in Hollywood, the American Horror Story star did not mince words. "Ageism is pervasive in this industry. It's not a level playing field," she told the outlet. "You don't often see women in their 60s playing romantic leads, yet you will see men in their 60s playing romantic leads with costars who are decades younger." And while Lange announced in 2013 that she was thinking of retiring from the glitz and glam of Hollywood, the Emmy winner hasn't showed signs of slowing down. "It's the desire to do something brave," she explained, "to be challenged." The Big Fish actress has not let the challenges of aging in tinseltown get the best of her. "In recent years, I've tried to come to grips with the idea that you can actually choose to be happy. You can choose not to let things affect you negatively. I've always had such a quick temper. I realize now, it's such a waste of energy. You can actually choose to let things roll off you." In what might be one of her most demanding roles, The Vow alum opened up on how motherhood changed her life. "Having children gives you a perspective you didn't have before," she explained. Lange is a mother of three adult children -- Shura Baryshnikov (whom she shares with Mikhail Baryshnikov, her partner from 1976 to 1982), and Hannah Jane and Shepard Samuel (whom she shares with Sam Shepard, her partner from 1982 to 2009). "You are no longer the center of the universe. It opened my heart, made me a different person. Every move you make is with someone else in mind. I loved being a mother more than anything else in the world, and being a grandmother is even more fun. There's the chance to do it again. It's in the perfect order of nature: You raise your children, and then the next generation comes along. They are the redemptive force in nature. Plus, it's easier!" Lange gushed over family. Lange can also add author to her list of her accomplishments. Grandmother to two grandchildren, the star penned her first children's book, "It's About a Little Bird," in 2013. "It started as a little story I wrote for my granddaughters. I was very interested in turn-of-the-century photographs and the way they would be hand-tinted. So I collected a lot of photographs I had taken of the kids and started hand coloring them. Then the story came together after I had a dream, and I put it together as their Christmas present, as a book. And then a friend of mine saw it and said, 'You should publish this.'" Lange's AARP interview hits newsstands July 31. (US Weekly)

Kerry Washington Shares a Sweet Photo From Katie Lowes' Baby Shower. Katie Lowes was showered with love over the weekend. On Saturday, Kerry Washington attended her Scandal co-star's baby shower at Au Fudge in L.A. She shared a photo from the event on Instagram a day later, writing, "You are all light and love. What a blessed bundle! Thank you for allowing us to love you and celebrate you this weekend. I will never forget all the love in that room! I'm so excited for you. And always here for you. Xo." Lowes, who plays Quinn Perkins, announced her pregnancy during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in May. This will be the first child for the actress and her husband, Adam Shapiro. "It's a boy!" the 35-year-old TV star told host Jimmy Kimmel. "We have zero names." Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes was the first person on set to learn that Lowes was expecting. "I told her five minutes from being pregnant. She already knew. She's a genius," Lowes said, adding that Rhimes had a hunch she might be pregnant after reviewing clips in the editing room. "She knows the minute I got pregnant." Lowes took her time telling the rest of the cast. Guillermo Díaz, for example, was clued in after he told the actress, "Your boobs look super big." Lowes' real-life pregnancy will be worked into the final season of Scandal. If the actress needs tips for balancing her personal and professional responsibilities, Rhimes has her covered. "Shonda's got I-don't-know-how-many shows now, plus three kids, and she just figures it out," Washington told Net-a-Porter's The EDIT in May. "However busy I feel, Shonda feels busier, so I'm just going to rise to the occasion. She's been a real role model. Seeing the community she's created and the work ethic -- I feel like there should be more of this in the world." Scandal's seventh season will premiere Oct. 5. (Eonline)

Mercedes Ruehl takes the stage last minute in East Hampton. At East Hampton's Guild Hall on Friday, Mercedes Ruehl performed with Richard Kind in a staged reading of "Assisted Loving: True Tales of Double Dating With my Dad" by Times writer Bob Morris. Ruehl, who lives in East Hampton and has an Oscar and a Tony, joined at the last minute because Tovah Feldshuh had to pull out due to a filming commitment in Toronto playing the US president in the CBS series "Salvation." Her POTUS character has a crisis on her hands -- a killer meteor heading for Earth. She also has trouble with -- what else? -- her staff. Morris' reading followed one called "Gross Points" in which Alec Baldwin played an egomaniacal star. Life imitates art. (PageSix)

"After witnessing that type of greatness it inspired me to get my own," he said. "I got little legs, but a big heart." According to Runner's World, Hart got interested in running in 2015 and completed his first official race in August 2016 at Oregon's Hood to Coast, which is a 199-mile, 12 person relay. (PageSix)

Kim Zolciak-Biermann Vows to Stop Posting About Her Dogs on Social Media After Follower Calls Animal Control. It's a dog-eat-dog world out there! Kim Zolciak-Biermann was not basking in the summer's glow when she took to Snapchat earlier Sunday to express her "disgust" towards an unknown social media follower who called animal control on her, complaining that the reality star wasn't taking care of her foster dogs properly. Talk about a dog day afternoon... In the video, the mom of six revealed that a stranger had called animal control to complain about her treatment of her three foster puppies, Shiloh, Sage and Stella. According to the reality mom, Fulton County Animal Services came and checked on the condition of the animals. Kim said, "Apparently somebody thought it would be really cute to call the animal control center on my dogs today and say they were not being taken care of." The 39-year-old lashed at the unknown person, saying, "I am utterly f--king disgusted and appalled by the person who did this." The reality star, who is an avid poster of both her personal dogs and foster dogs, said that all the hubbub was for nothing. "Of course we are in the clear because my dogs are very well taken care of," she said. The blonde also revealed that she'd actually shelled out more than $3,000 to take care of the pups. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star concluded, "I will no longer be sharing any part of my dogs and their life on my social media any longer." That's a pretty big deal for the social media savvy star, as she's frequently featuring the animals on her pages. This isn't the first doggy drama that that the reality star and her family have faced in 2017. Earlier this year, her son Kash was bitten in the face by a dog and suffered "very traumatic injuries." The 4-year-old had to be hospitalized for his injuries. While there was fear that the dog may have injured the boy's eyesight, all seems to be well with the young one. Despite the incident, the hands-on mom has encouraged her son to stay true to his love of canines. In addition to owning dogs and fostering dogs, Kim and her husband Kroy Biermann are also parents to son KJ, 5, twins Kaia and Kane, 3, and her daughters Brielle, 20, and Ariana, 15. (Eonline)

James Blunt left fans in stitches on Twitter after posting a funny tweet about shopping for 'hoes'. The "You're Beautiful" singer is known for his sense of humor on social media, and on Thursday he didn't disappoint his followers. James shared a picture of a shop in Leicester called Blunts Shoes, but unfortunately the S was missing from the sign, making it read as Blunts hoes. The 43-year-old captioned the shot: "Dis where I get ma hoes." One follower wrote: "Coming out station and seeing blunts was funny enough but this tops my immature 14 y/o selfs idea of comedy." Another added: "You are a funny, funny man," while a third tweeted: "yet another classic from the Twitter fiend." James has won a whole legion of fans thanks to his often self-deprecating humor on Twitter. In December, he tweeted: "If you thought 2016 was bad, I'm releasing an album in 2017." And in a telly advert for the record, The Afterlove, he pokes fun at himself by holding hands and reassuring people in group therapy -- at a support group for his fans. Speaking to The Sun he said: "You need to be a brave person to admit to being a James Blunt fan. "But now fans are giving me grief for not taking myself seriously. They love my music and I've made my best album yet. "I'm so proud of it and happy to say that." However, it's not just on Twitter that James shows off his sense of humor, as he delighted Sunday Brunch viewers back in April with his wit. Fans even suggested he should peruse a career in stand up following his cheeky comments on the hit Channel 4 show. (Page Six)

Carmelo and La La Anthony may be separated, but the basketball star is still showing his admiration for his estranged wife. On Sunday, Carmelo shared a steamy photo of the Power star dolled up in a sparking silver dress with her hair in a high ponytail. The athlete only captioned the image with three emoji: eyes, a heart and a globe. The post comes after La La visited The Wendy Williams Show last month, sharing that she and her husband of seven years had no plans to divorce "right now." "You know marriages are tough, and you know that," she said. "We all know that. It's filled with ups and downs. We are just going through a time right now." Carmelo and Lala Anthony have Separated. New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony and his wife, La La, have separated after seven years of marriage. La La-whose separation from the NBA player was announced in April-said, "Him and I are the best of friends and our number one commitment is to our [10-year-old son, Kiyan]." "We have to set an example for Kiyan and that's what's most important to me," she said. "That's my son's father and he is an amazing dad. I could not ask for a better dad." Despite the separation, La La and Carmelo have had a healthy co-parenting relationship. "Things are great. We are parents of an amazing 10-year-old. That is my priority, that my son is healthy and happy," she told PeopleStyle at a June summer celebration hosted by Arm & Hammer. "I will do whatever I can to ensure that, and my husband is the exact same way." Anthony continued that the couple's successful co-parenting methods have created a positive environment for Kiyan, and nothing feels any different to him.

Allen Iverson was gambling in a Chicago area casino hours before he blew off a BIG3 basketball league game in Dallas over the weekend ... TMZ Sports has learned. Iverson was first spotted at the Rivers Casino in Des Plaines, IL on Saturday night into early Sunday morning. One witness says AI was still in the building at 3 AM. The issue ... Iverson -- who's the coach and captain of the 3's Company team -- was supposed to be in Dallas to play Team Power but he never showed up. Hours later, Iverson surfaced at the Sugar Factory restaurant (around 10 PM on Sunday -- wearing the same clothes he'd been wearing at the casino in the days before. Fans who recognized him asked for photos, but he refused. The restaurant is 2 miles from the casino. The BIG3 has launched an investigation into the situation. Iverson had been frequenting the casino last week -- and had been gambling with a huge stack of chips at the roulette table. Earlier in the month, he was spotted at another casino in Philadelphia. Attempts to reach Iverson were unsuccessful. (TMZ)

Turns out controversial "Bachelor In Paradise" star DeMario Jackson may not be done with reality TV -- TMZ has learned producers are seriously considering him for a "Dancing With the Stars" slot. Sources close to production tell us the show reached out to DeMario's publicist weeks ago, which explains why he was already fully campaigning to be in the ballroom when we asked about it last week. We're told nothing's signed ... they're still negotiating, but hard to imagine a scenario where DeMario doesn't take this opportunity. DeMario didn't return to the 'BiP' set in Mexico following the oral sex controversy with Corinne Olympios that shut down production, but he will be on the reunion episode. (TMZ)

O.J. Simpson's 2 kids with Nicole are buying up a bunch of properties in Florida, and Fred Goldman's attorneys want to know where they got the money to do it. Sydney and Justin Simpson -- who are 31 and 28, respectively now -- both live in Florida and work in real estate ... and they're apparently doing very well in the industry. According to the NY Post, they've each purchased a handful of apartments in the St. Petersburg area over the last 2 years. There are reportedly no mortgages on the properties ... suggesting they paid cash. An attorney for Goldman -- who won a $33.5 million judgment from O.J. Following the civil trial for the families of Goldman and Simpson -- says he wants to follow the money trail. Simpson still owes the bulk of that money, and clearly Goldman has an interest in finding out if Simpson's hiding cash from him. It won't be easy. Much of Simpson's wealth -- pensions and annuities -- is protected under Florida law. We got video of Justin in Florida the day O.J. was paroled. Definitely seems like he's doing well, based on the car he's driving. (TMZ)

MTV Renames the Video Music Awards' ''Moonman'' to ''Moon Person.'' Bye-bye Mr. Moonman ... Hello Moon Person! In keeping with some new changes at the network, MTV is doing away with the gendered VMA trophy, lovingly called the "Moonman," in favor of a gender-free space traveler, which will be henceforth known as the "Moon Person." In an interview with the New York Times, MTV's president Chris McCarthy said that, in addition to getting rid of the gendered categories at the 2017 MTV Movie Awards and upcoming 2017 MTV VMAs, winners would be taking home the gender neutral figure. In the interview, McCarthy said, "Why should it be a man? It could be a man, it could be a woman, it could be transgender, it could be nonconformist." Viewers will be able to see the updated trophy at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, which will air live from The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. on Sunday, August 27 at 8 p.m. ET. But that's not all that the head honcho said about shaking up conventions, which the network is known for doing. McCarthy told the publication that MTV is developing a reality show called We Are They that focuses on young people, who are gender-nonconforming, and their coming-of-age moments. While MTV, which has faced seriously declining ratings in recent years, is certainly changing its tune, the network is also kicking things old school with its revival of TRL, which McCarthy confirms is due out in October. The revamp of TRL, which was a new spin on American Bandstand, will initially run an hour a day. The OG TRL debuted on Sept. 14, 1998 and ran until Nov. 16, 2008. McCarthy also teased the news that a massive studio facing Times Square was being built in hopes of bringing back the magic of yesteryear, when heading to Times Square was a must for adventurous youngsters. "If we're going to come back and reinvent MTV, the studio is a given," he said. "It is the centerpiece." October can't come soon enough... (Eonline)

Fans Claim Perrie Edwards Threw Some In-Concert Shade at Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik. It's been almost two years exactly since news broke that Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards called off their engagement, but it seems there's still some bad blood between them. According to a fan who attended Little Mix's concert in New Zealand over the weekend, Edwards threw some shade at Malik and his current girlfriend, Gigi Hadid. In the video, the group was performing their hit song "Shout Out to My Ex" -- which many people have speculated references Edwards' split from Malik -- when she seemingly changed the lyrics to take aim at the former One Direction band member and his model girlfriend. While singing the lines, "I hope she gettin' better sex / Hope she ain't fakin' it like I did, babe," a fan claimed she changed the lyrics to, "Hope she ain't fakin' it like Hadid" -- which is definitely more of a shot at Malik than Hadid, but it sparked conversation nonetheless. The moment caused Edwards' bandmate Jade Thirlwall to bust up laughing so much so that she missed a couple of her lines during the performance. Of course, fans of both Malik and Edwards came to their respective idols' defense. While fans of Malik claimed Edwards was being immature, fans of Edwards said she didn't change the lyrics. Rather, they think her voice cracked, causing it to sound like "Hadid." Edwards hasn't commented publicly regarding the situation, so we'll let you draw your own conclusions on that. Meanwhile, Edwards and Malik met in 2011 during season eight of The X Factor. They sparked up a romance shortly thereafter, confirming their relationship in 2012, and ended up getting engaged less than a year later, in August 2013. However, the couple called off their engagement in 2015, and Malik began dating Hadid later that year. (Eonline)

Liam Gallagher Was ID'd When He Bought Cigarettes in NYC (And He Wasn't Happy About It) Liam Gallagher was in New York City this weekend, playing a couple of warm-up gigs ahead of his upcoming solo album As You Were and his November U.S. tour. Let's follow along, shall we? The former Oasis singer arrived bright and early Thursday with an idiosyncratic greeting: Oxford tells me that "choon" is British slang for "a song or piece of popular music." Its usage in this context remains unclear. Anyway, the sewage system in England must be a real piece of work, because Liam Gallagher thinks New York City smells good in the summer: Things took a turn for the worse when Gallagher learned he'd need ID to buy cigarettes: "D'you know who I am, mate?" is unlikely to cut it at the Duane Reade checkout, but I'd like to see him try. Fortunately, the weather in New York was beautiful, moving Liam to quote the Beatles as he took in the sights: Gallagher regularly introduces novel configurations of slang in his tweets, but here it's safe to assume "burn" is a typo for "run" -- he's apparently into jogging, which happens to be a sport you can do in an anorak. Enjoy New York, Liam! As You Were is out October 6. (Billboard)

Kiiara's Emotional Tribute to Linkin Park's Chester Bennington at Panorama Fest. Performing live for the first time since the death of Chester Bennington, Kiiara delivered a heartfelt tribute to the Linkin Park vocalist at New York City's Panorama Festival. The pop artist will be forever linked to Bennington, thanks to her poignant guest vocals on "Heavy," Linkin Park's last big hit song before Bennington committed suicide on July 20. Kiiara powered through the first few songs of her Panorama gig at the festival's indoor Parlor Stage, before devoting its final moments to Chester. "It's been... a pretty rough week," she began. "I don't know what to say and there's nothing really to say to make it better, but these next two songs are for Chester." At that, Linkin Park's "Battle Symphony," a track off their 2017 album One More Light, began to play. Kiiara and her band simply sat aside and let it take over, imploring the sizable crowd to take it all in with them. Next came the moment many were expecting; "Heavy" began to play, its music video broadcasted on the stage's big screen for all to see. Kiiara filled in her vocal parts, with her drummer and keyboardist performing their bits as needed. When it ended, Kiiara offered a simple, "Thank you, New York," and scampered offstage. Her set was over a few minutes early, but for all on hand, it was a powerful opportunity to remember Bennington, and what he meant to Kiiara, along with the multitude of other collaborators he touched. Around the same time on another stage, A Tribe Called Quest was saluting Phife Dawg on the Panorama main stage, remembering its own lost hero in one of its first shows without him. There was a lot of cause for celebration at Panorama this weekend, but Kiiara and Tribe's tributes were solemn reminders to hold onto our heroes while they're with us. (Billboard)

Amazon Inks Exclusive Worldwide Streaming Deal With Bollywood Star Salman Khan. The video giant's deal with the star's banner follows a similar deal rival Netflix has with top star Shah Rukh Khan's banner. Amazon Prime Video has inked a pact with Bollywood star Salman Khan's banner that gives the video giant exclusive worldwide streaming rights to his catalog and upcoming titles. The deal builds on the video giant's aggressive local content strategy as seen in earlier deals signed with other leading Bollywood and regional language banners. While financial terms were not provided, Prime Video head of content, Asia Pacific James Farrell said in a statement that "this exclusive worldwide Prime Video streaming deal with him is one of the biggest star deals to have ever been done in the world." Amazon's deal with Khan, who is one of India's most bankable stars, follows a similar deal rival Netflix has signed with top star Shah Rukh Khan's banner, Red Chillies Entertainment, which was unveiled just a day after Amazon launched its service in India in December. The agreement with Salman Khan Ventures covers the actor's recent release, Tubelight, along with earlier titles, such as 2015's hit Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Kick, Jai Ho and Hero. Future films produced by the banner will first premiere on Amazon Prime Video after their theatrical release and two months before television premieres or any other form of distribution. "This is another big step to change the way how Indian customers consume entertainment with Salman's movies coming first to Prime Video customers, before their television broadcast," said Amazon Video India director and country head Nitesh Kripalani. "Amazon Prime Video reaches over 200 countries and territories and I am happy to collaborate with Amazon Prime Video and expand the reach of Indian cinema," said Khan. Both streaming video giants have been competing aggressively on original Indian content. Amazon recently premiered its first Indian original, Inside Edge, based on cricket, while Netflix is in production on its first Indian original, Sacred Games, for which it recently announced that the series would be headlined by Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan.

China Box Office Roars Back to Life as 'Wolf Warrior 2' Makes Massive $130M Debut. 'Captain America' directors Joe and Anthony Russo consulted on the action film, which handily outperformed a propaganda film during the summer season when China blocks international competition from the market. After a lackluster series of months, the Chinese film industry finally has a homegrown summer blockbuster on its hands. Actor-director Wu Jing's Wolf Warrior 2, a sequel to his 2015 film of the same name, opened Thursday to $15 million before pulling in an enormous $131 million over the weekend. The action flick surpassed the first Wolf Warrior film's entire $86 million run in less than three days, while dominating The Founding of an Army, the much-hyped state propaganda film about the establishment of the People's Liberation Army, which also opened Thursday. Produced by former China Film Group boss Han Sanping and directed by Hong Kong's Andrew Lau, The Founding of an Army debuted to just $5.6 million, despite getting nearly twice as many screenings as Wolf Warrior (about 69,000 showings compared to 38,000, respectively). As Wolf Warrior proceeded to pull further and further ahead, cinema managers began to disregard official instructions from Beijing's media regulators to give the propaganda flick heavy play. On Friday, Wolf Warrior received 113,000 showings and earned $31.6 million; compared to 94,000 showings and $8 million in ticket sales for Army; by Sunday, Wolf Warrior was way out ahead with 133,000 showings for $53.7 million, over 81,000 showings for $8 million by Army. Hollywood is conspicuously absent from the Middle Kingdom this month, thanks to China's usual policy of blocking international competition from the market during the busy summer blockbuster season. But traces of the U.S. industry's fingerprints could still be detected within Wolf Warrior 2's success. Marvel mainstays Joe and Anthony Russo, co-directors of the Captain America franchise, consulted on the film via their Chinese studio venture Anthem & Song, which has strategic partnership with Beijing Culture Media Company, one of the local production companies behind Wolf Warrior. The Russos introduced some of their usual stunt team, lead by veteran action coordinator Sam Hargrave (Captain America: Civil War, Atomic Blonde), to boost the quality and intensity of the film's fight sequences. Wolf Warrior 2 stars Wu as a former Chinese Special Forces operative who is drawn out of retirement to battle bloodthirsty American mercenaries during an African revolution. American actor Frank Grillo (Captain America), also a Russo Brothers regular, co-stars as the film's baddie, while Hong Kong's Celina Jade plays the female lead. Lingering in the marketplace since its pre-Hollywood blackout release last month, Universal's Despicable Me 3 landed in third for the weekend, earning $3.7 million. After four weeks on Chinese screens, the film has earned $146 million. The next major international title to hit the Chinese market will be Luc Besson's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets on Aug. 25, a week before Dunkirk bows Sept. 1 and Spider-Man: Homecoming spins its web across the Middle Kingdom Sept. 8.

Game of Thrones Leaks Begin as Hackers Hit HBO With Major Cyber Attack. Hackers have come for HBO. The cable network is the latest entertainment company to find themselves the target of major cyber-attack, with upcoming episodes and scripts from a handful of their shows showing up online courtesy of hackers who've found a way to breach the company's systems, EW reports. Hackers claim to have stolen 1.5 terabytes of proprietary data from HBO. Already, an upcoming episode of both Ballers and Room 104 have surfaced, as well as a script that is purportedly from next week's episode of Game of Thrones, with the threat that more is "coming soon." "HBO recently experienced a cyber incident, which resulted in the compromise of proprietary information," the network confirmed with E! News in a statement. "We immediately began investigating the incident and are working with law enforcement and outside cybersecurity firms. Data protection is a top priority at HBO, and we take seriously our responsibility to protect the data we hold." HBO chairman and CEO Richard Pleper sent an email to his employees on Monday morning, alerting them of the security breach. "As most of you have probably heard by now, there has been a cyber incident directed at the company which has resulted in some stolen proprietary information, including some of our programming," he wrote. "Any intrusion of this nature is obviously disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing for all of us. I can assure you that senior leadership and our extraordinary technology team, along with outside experts, are working round the clock to protect our collective interests. The efforts across multiple departments have been nothing short of herculean. It is a textbook example of quintessential HBO teamwork. The problem before us is unfortunately all too familiar in the world we now find ourselves a part of. As has been the case with any challenge we have ever faced, I have absolutely no doubt that we will navigate our way through this successfully." The anonymous hackers first made their attack known on Sunday by emailing a handful of reporters: "Hi to all mankind. The greatest leak of cyber space era is happening. What's its name? Oh I forget to tell. Its HBO and Game of Thrones... ... !!!!!! You are lucky to be the first pioneers to witness and download the leak. Enjoy it & spread the words. Whoever spreads well, we will have an interview with him. HBO is falling." Whether or not the hackers managed to obtain any actual footage from GoT remains to be seen. Since its inception, HBO has struggled to keep Game of Thrones content from being illegally distributed -- especially before it airs. The show ranked as the most pirated TV series every year, and during season five, the first four episodes were leaked online before the season had even premiered once review DVDs were sent out to press and industry insiders. After that, no advance screeners of Game of Thrones have ever been sent again. Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO. (Eonline)

Game of Thrones: Dany and Jon Finally Meet But All Is Not Well in Westeros. What a bunch of conflicted feelings we're feeling right now. Everything just went wrong, in so many ways. Or it went right, if you're rooting for the Lannisters and Rockstar Euron Greyjoy, which we have to admit we're not. Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen finally met, but it was at first not the cheerful converging of plot lines we've been dreaming of. Dany sat up there on her high horse of a throne, making Missandei recite an entire monologue of titles while all Davos could do was mumble, "This is Jon Snow...he's king in the north." Dany went on and on about how she's the rightful Queen and if Jon won't kneel before her, what is he even doing here? Jon, meanwhile, had no reason to call Dany the queen, but did need her help in defeating the Night King. Dany was all "LOL zombies, I've got dragons, bitch." (Basically.) It just didn't go well in general. Up next, we found out what became of the Greyjoys and Dornish. Theon was rescued, but Yara, Ellaria, and one of the sand snakes were captured by Euron and brought to Cersei as her gift, since Ellaria was the one who murdered Myrcella. Cersei took true joy in this gift, agreeing to marry Euron...eventually...and immediately putting Ellaria and her daughter in the dungeon, feeding poison to the daughter, and forcing Ellaria to sit and watch her die. Then, she and Jaime went and had some gross sibling sex, and Cersei decided she no longer cared who saw them together, since she's the queen, after all. Back at Dragonstone, Tyrion played mediator between both Jon and Dany, and eventually got Dany on Jon's side. She still plans to be queen of even the North, but she'll allow Jon to mine the dragon glass and will provide him with any other resources he needs. So that's nice, at least. At Winterfell, Sansa was being a serious boss, dealing with food shortages and unexpected visitors named Bran Stark!! She tried to tell him he was now Lord of Winterfell, but he explained that he couldn't, because now he's the Three Eyed Raven. After being completely freaked out by Bran's knowledge of her nightmare wedding night, Sansa left him alone by the heart tree. At the Citadel, Sam's cure for Greyscale apparently worked, and Jorah was free to go. Sam, however, had to be chastised but also praised for disobeying the maester. He expected a reward for saving Jorah's life, but instead he got to copy a bunch of parchments. Basically Sam cannot catch a break, but at least he didn't do anything gross in this episode, so maybe he's moving up in the world. Back at Dragonstone, Dany was determined to take her dragons to destroy Euron's fleet, but Tyrion had better ideas. Apparently, he had designed the Casterly Rock sewer system to make it possible for his prostitute friends to come in and out undetected, meaning the Unsullied had a way in. They got in, but discovered the Lannister army wasn't even there. Jaime had actually pulled a season 2 Robb Stark and marched his troops to Highgarden to defeat House Tyrell, purposely allowing the Unsullied to take Casterly Rock, knowing they wouldn't be able to hold it. He met with Lady Olenna, who continued to be the best character on this show, speaking truths like "Cersei is a disease" 'til the very end. Jaime gave her poison, and she drank it willingly. Then, she dropped the bomb that it was she who killed Joffrey, and she wanted both Jaime and Cersei to know that fact. Let this be our official petition to erect a statue of Olenna Tyrell literally anywhere there is room for a statue, because this woman managed to win and die at the same time, despite the fact that you can only either win or die on this show. We declare her Queen in our Hearts, and we'll chant it for you if you wish. Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO. (Eonline)

Teen Wolf Premiere: Bugs, Rats, and More Stiles Than We Dared to Dream (Plus, Scoop!). STILES. AT. THE FBI. We repeat: STILES AT THE FBI! Like many fans, we went into Sunday night's final season premiere of Teen Wolf not expecting much more than a glimpse from Scott McCall's best friend in the world, since Dylan O'Brien is now a very busy movie star. That's why the end of "Said the Spider to the Fly" delighted us so. Stiles has a whole storyline! It's a miracle...which we'll get to in a minute. First, let's talk about the rest of the episode, which was much darker, much bloodier, and much less filled with spittakes. The whole pack was making preparations for what was to come, with Scott working his last day as assistant lacrosse coach, Lydia preparing to leave for college, and Malia bemoaning her rerouted plane to Paris. Liam, meanwhile, was freaking out, both about Scott leaving and about his girlfriend leaving him to take care of her sister. Everything was fine and not supernatural at all until an unknown wolf appeared on the lacrosse field, leading Scott and Liam into the woods. There, they found that the forest was filled with dead wolves, all crawling with bugs. At the always reliably terrifying Eichen House, a guy had been stuck in hardened volcanic rock since at least 1912. Then, two guys bothered him, and he exploded out of the ash, revealing himself to be a hellhound. He wandered around, causing rats in classrooms and fights at the hospital, injuring Liam along the way (and proving himself no match against Mason's Stiles-esque bat). Then he ran into the new guidance counselor. She had spent her day meeting with all the new seniors and seeming extremely interested in the lives of a few particular students and their extra-curricular activities. Later, she chased after the hellhound and managed to shoot him dead, somehow. She's clearly this season's Mysterious Teacher, but just how evil she is we have yet to see. Meanwhile, Lydia can't walk into a room without finding herself in a horror movie, and through her visions she learned that when they saved Stiles at the end of 6A, they let something out that shouldn't have been let out, so she informed Scott and a devastated Malia that their post-high school plans would have to wait. As the three of them listened to a sweet voicemail from Stiles urging Scott to keep his plans to get out of Beacon Hills, we cut to Stiles headed to one of his FBI classes, the annoyingly model student, only to then see Derek on a screen, apparently wanted for mass murder.

Ronnie Magro-Ortiz Talks Relationship With Sammi Sweetheart on Famously Single: "She Wasn't Exactly What I Needed." Ronnie Magro-Ortiz is ready to move on from the past. In Sunday night's episode of Famously Single, the Jersey Shore star opened up about his roller coaster relationship with ex-girlfriend Sammi Sweetheart during his one-on-one session with Dr. Darcy Sterling. "Why aren't you with Sam?" the relationship therapist wondered. "I don't think that she ever fulfilled me inside," the 31-year-old TV personality confessed. "I guess that's why I cheated. Maybe she wasn't exactly what I needed." After hearing about Ronnie's conversation with Dr. Darcy, Malika Haqq had one burning question on her mind. "Are you really over her?" she asked. And he replied, "Yes." Meanwhile, the celebrities got lessons in how to be sexy from two professional dancers, including the Pussycat Dolls founder Robin Antin. And everyone -- well, except Dorothy Wang -- really enjoyed the seductive exercise. "I unleash my inner Pussycat doll!" Tiffany "New York" Pollard said. "Malika's throwing her head like a sexy little slut. We're all having a good time." (Eonline)

Gianni Versace's lover slams Ricky Martin's 'ridiculous' portrayal. Gianni Versace's longtime lover has broken his silence for the first time since the famed fashion designer's 1997 murder -- to slam Ricky Martin's portrayal of him in an upcoming series of "American Crime Story." "The picture of Ricky Martin holding the body in his arms is ridiculous," Antonio D'Amico, Versace's boyfriend of 15 years, told The Guardian in a story published Sunday. "Maybe it's the director's poetic license, but that is not how I reacted." D'Amico, 58, revealed how that tragic moment really played out. He says he was drinking coffee on the porch of their Miami Beach mansion while Versace went out to buy the paper from a local cafe when he heard the shots. "I felt as if my blood had turned to ice," he told the paper. He and their butler went outside to find the Italian fashion icon lying on the steps in a pool of blood, he said. But then he was pulled away from the scene, so he was never able to cradle his lover's head the way a blood-splattered Martin was shown doing in stills released in May. "At that point, everything went dark. I was pulled away, I didn't see any more," D'Amico said. The shooter, 27-year-old serial killer Andrew Cunanan, offed himself with the same gun shortly after, and his motive remains a mystery -- leading to decades of speculation and, D'Amico says, fake news. "There has been so much written and said about the murder, and thousands of suppositions, but not a trace of reality," he told The Guardian. In another scene, Versace, played by Edgar Ramirez, freaks out when he thinks the paparazzi have caught the pair touching -- but D'Amico said he was very open about his sexuality, even before he came out in the 1980s. "We lived like a natural couple, there was never a problem," said D'Amico, a fashion designer himself who received a monthly stipend of $30,555 for life in Versace's will. D'Amico says he wasn't consulted on the Ryan Murphy-produced "American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace," and doesn't plan on watching it when it screens next year. (PageSix)
