Michael Buble and Luisana Lopilato Welcome Baby No. 3. UPDATE: Welcome to the world, baby Vida! Michael Buble and Luisana Lopilato named their newborn daughter Vida Amber Betty Buble. The singer's rep tells People, "The family is back home and are overjoyed with the new addition." Her moniker has special meaning for the entire family, as Vida means "life" in Spanish, Amber is Michael's mother's name and Betty is Luisana's mother's name. ______ "It's a Beautiful Day," especially since Michael Buble and Luisana Lopilato welcomed a baby girl into the world. Lopilato posted the first photo of their baby girl's hand on Thursday, letting the world know she's been born. In February, E! News confirmed the parents to Noah, 4, and Elias, 2, were expecting their third child following weeks of speculation after the Argentinian shared a photo of a possible baby bump. The singer later spoke about his excitement during an interview with Today FM and revealed the pair was expecting a baby girl. "Everything's good, and I've got my first little girl coming in about three weeks. I've actually never said that before in public. I've got a daughter coming," Buble shared. His daughter is coming into the world following Buble's return to the concert stage after taking two years off to spend more time with his family while their 4-year-old son recovered from liver cancer. Most recently, the star recalled learning about the devastating diagnosis via text just as he was about to go on stage in London. The artist said, "I don't know how I even sang, man, I just did it on autopilot." In the months following, the family concentrated on Noah's health and maintaining unity in the troubling times. And nearly six months after revealing their son's condition, Luisana told fans, "My son's recovery is a long process as you all know and he has to continue with check-ups. But we are very happy. We are looking forward to thinking about the future, to seeing our children grow." And with the arrival of baby number three, it looks like Buble and his wife have even more to look forward to. Congratulations to the Buble family. (Eonline)

Gina Rodriguez is engaged to Joe LoCicero. Jane the fiancee! Gina Rodriguez and Joe LoCicero are engaged, Us Weekly reported. Fans suspected LoCicero proposed when Rodriguez showed off a brand-new diamond ring on that finger in pictures celebrating her 34th birthday. 'They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn't,'" she wrote on Instagram, quoting artist Frida Kahlo. "'I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.'" The couple met in 2016 when LoCicero guest starred on Rodriguez's hit CW series "Jane the Virgin." Since becoming official they've often publicly gushed about each other, with the Golden Globe winner calling the actor her "king" in photos. Neither has commented publicly on the news. Reps for Rodriguez and LoCicero didn't immediately return Page Six's request for comment. (PageSix)

Mila Kunis' Love Story With Ashton Kutcher Just Got Sweeter Thanks to Her Latest Confession. Everyone's love story is different, but there's just something about Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis' romance that fans can't get enough of. While the couple has shared details about their journey from co-stars to couple in recent years, there are still many details left to uncover. Lucky for us, Mila was able to share a few when appearing on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast. "I did a movie called Friends With Benefits. He did a movie that was very similar called No Strings Attached. We lived our movies out," the actress shared. "We were just like, let's just hook up. Let's have fun. We're both single. We both trust each other. Everything's great." After hooking up for three months, Mila was the one to develop feelings. And yes, she had to reveal the truth. "I was like, you know what, I actually care about you. I don't want to mess anything up so I'm just going to walk away before it becomes too much," she recalled. "And he was like, 'Got it.' And the next day, he showed up to my house and he was like, 'Move in with me' and I said ok." And the rest is history! The couple is happily married and the proud parents to two kids. And although both mom and dad continue to have busy careers, they have one important mission: Keep their family together. "Ashton and I, when we decided to have a family, we said we're never going to separate the family," Mila recalled. "So as long as he's shooting his show [The Ranch], I'm in LA with the kids... If I'm doing a movie, then we uproot the family to where I am." During the candid conversation, host Marc Maron also addressed all the chatter that occurred during Ashton's past romance with Demi Moore. While some were suspicious about how serious the relationship was, Mila was able to provide a glimpse into their dynamic. "They had a normal, real relationship," she assured listeners. "They had three kids they were raising. It was a normal life. Yeah, he was younger, but he loved those kids." Demi and ex-husband Bruce Willis are the proud parents to Rumer, Tallulah and Scout Willis. Mila added that Ashton still has a relationship with them today. As for Ashton's love story with Mila, some can't help but wonder what would have happened if the pair started dating sooner. And by sooner, we mean during That '70s Show days. While they played boyfriend and girlfriend on the show and even made out, Mila says there were "no feelings whatsoever." But as everyone knows, love can happen when you least expect it. "He and I talk about it and we're like, yes, had we connected then, would we have connected? No, because the people who we were back then would never be together. But it's just a bummer that we missed out on 20 years together," Mila shared. "I look back and I'm like, we could have spent 20 years together." She added, "We would have never been together if we didn't both go through what we went through in order to be the people that we were when we met. Reconnected I should say -- not met." (Eonline)

Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger Caught Kissing as Their Relationship Gets Serious. Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger's bond is only getting stronger. Less than two months after relationship rumors sparked between the Hollywood actor and best-selling author, fans are learning just how serious this summer romance has become. Over the weekend, the pair enjoyed a Sunday morning church service together before lunch at Soho House with Pastor Chad Veach. Katherine then headed to The Bigg Chill in Westwood, Calif., where she joined Chris and his son Jack for frozen yogurt. "She was helping him and very nurturing. She was extremely friendly and laughing with him," an eyewitness shared with E! News. "You could tell she loves little kids and is very good with them." Another source added, "All three of them sat for a moment and looked like a family. They looked really happy and it looked like a very comfortable and natural dynamic." Back in June over Father's Day weekend, photos surfaced of Chris and Katherine enjoying a picnic near Santa Barbara. While some pop culture fans initially thought this could just be two friends hanging out, it developed into something more. In fact, Katherine's mom Maria Shriver is a big supporter of the romance. "Maria is very excited for Katherine. Everyone has their fingers crossed that this is going to work out long term. They think Chris is an amazing guy and a great catch," a source shared with E! News. "They are really perfect together and have similar goals and values. They have gotten serious quickly." Another insider added, "Chris was taking things slow with Katherine at first but overall, he is not seeing anybody else and considers what he has with Katherine as exclusive. He's not afraid to show his affection for her in public. Chris is doing things differently by not putting too much pressure on anything, but they are very happy so far. Katherine really likes Chris too." And while Maria deserves credit for helping set this pair up, we're told Chris was immediately drawn to the philanthropist and lifestyle blogger. "Chris is smitten by Katherine and is super happy about how it's going so far," a separate source previously shared with E! News. (Eonline)

A positive mentality. John Cena is looking to the future with hope following reports that he and ex-fiancee Nikki Bella have broken up for good. "If you can learn something from your experiences, good and bad, you will live with little to no regret," Cena, 41, tweeted on Monday, July 30, hours after TMZ reported that he and Bella, 34, grew apart and are not getting back together. Us Weekly broke the news in April that the Blockers actor and the Total Bellas star ended their engagement after six years together. The pair told Us in an exclusive statement that they "continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another." In June, their rep told Us that they were "working on their relationship" and "taking it day by day," but Nikki said in a YouTube video earlier this month that she and Cena are "just friends." They chronicled their relationship highs and lows during the E! series' third season and called off their wedding on the finale, which aired on Sunday, July 29. "I feel like I've ruined everyone's fairytale," Bella tearfully said during the episode. "My heart hurts so bad." Nikki's twin sister, Brie Bella, tweeted a similar sentiment shortly after the episode aired. "I hate seeing my sister's fairytale end. Break ups are hard but John always says the sun will still shine tomorrow. He's right, it will," she wrote. "Tomorrow starts a new day, new life and happiness to come. Love you #BellaArmy and thank you for joining us on our journey of life #TotalBellas." Shortly before the finale, Bella told TMZ on Thursday, July 26, that she is house-hunting in La Jolla, California, and may be moving out of the home she shared with Cena. Nonetheless, the WWE superstar noted that she still has "some fire" with the Trainwreck actor and she stills "love[s] him a lot." (US Weekly)

Millie Bobby Brown and Jacob Sartorius Break Up. Brown and Jacob Sartorius have parted ways, but they won't be strangers. The teen romance is over for the 14-year-old Emmy-nominated actress and the 15-year-old singer. The former couple, who were first romantically linked at the start of 2018, confirmed their breakup in matching Instagram Stories statements on Tuesday. "The decision was Jacob and I was completely mutual," Brown wrote on her account. "We are both happy and remaining friends." The performer echoed the sentiment with virtually the same statement on his own page. The two tipped fans off to their budding romance in January when some noticed they were commenting on each other's photos. Brown then shared a post of herself cuddling up to a stuffed bear, which we soon learned was a gift from her new beau. Then, they went Instagram official with a black and white selfie together accented with heart emojis. The jury's still out on what exactly caused the split. Whatever the case, they seem to be on the same mature page about sharing the news with their devoted fans. (Eonline)

Mandy Moore and Jenna Dewan Reveal the Origin of Their 20-Year Friendship. Mandy Moore and Jenna Dewan's friendship is so real -- and they have a song to thank for that. The former teen pop star and backup dancer reminisced about their early days in Tinseltown during an interview together on The Late Late Show Monday night. As James Corden helped confirm, the ladies go back nearly 20 years after meeting on the set of Moore's music video for her second international single, "So Real." "It was a song called 'So Real' that was like a single in Australia or something," Moore fuzzily recalled on the late-night show. Meanwhile, Dewan seemed to remember every bit of the early career highlight. "This was like the biggest deal in the world to me. I called my family. I was like, 'I'm doing a Mandy Moore video.' It was this huge production," she described. "I was just overly excited. I danced way too hard the entire time." Meanwhile, Moore was not so keen on busting a move. "I didn't dance because I'm the worst dancer in the world and that's why you were there to make up for that fact," she joked. To jog fans' memory, the 2000 video featured the songstress in an open field during the day and then switched to the nighttime. However, magic seemed to strike at night as she found the entrance to a magic forest where her poppy spouted weird red goo and flowers showered the screen in that cheesy millennium effects kind of way. Sporting mermaid waves, a green fringed sweater and bubblegum pink flowing skirt (also known as the uniform of the 2000s), the then-15-year-old was joined by a bevy of male and female backup dancers performing choreography in front of a monument-like dome. Why? Your guess is as good as ours. Unfortunately, you can only get glimpses of Dewan in the background, but we'll forever be grateful to this video for bringing these two stars together. (Eonline)

Tiffany Haddish Says She'd Teach Sex Education If She Weren't in Comedy. Tiffany Haddish has built a successful career as a comedy star, but did the Girls Trip actress ever consider a different career? "I alway say, 'If this comedy thing doesn't work out, I would probably be a sex education teacher,'" she tells Glamour for its September issue. "I guarantee none of my kids would have STDs after I finish teaching them." As for her own sex life, Haddish suggests she's too busy to date. "I don't really have time," she tells the magazine. "And I've had enough somebodies. I done ran through 38 dudes, OK? Body count, yeah. Mine is 38." While students won't be enrolling in Ms. Haddish's class anytime soon, fans can see her play a teacher in her new movie Night School. The film, in which she stars opposite Kevin Hart, hits theaters Sept. 28. With a new movie and recent Emmy nomination under her belt, Haddish seems to have it all. She attributes much of her success to her positive mentality. "My opportunities are whatever I create," she tells Glamour. "My thoughts from two years ago is what's happening right now. I really think my thoughts are my magic wand." Still, Haddish hasn't finished reaching for the stars. In fact, she says she's inspired by Dwayne Johnson. "If he can make $65 million, I can make $65 million too," she says. Even with all of her success, Haddish hasn't forgotten about her roots. According to the magazine, Haddish has used her money to support her family. "I got my mom out of the mental institution, like I said I would, in December," she says, "and I got her an apartment with my sister and a nurse that comes to her." She hopes to give her loved ones even more as she achieves more success. "I ain't never said this out loud, but I want to be able to give every one of my siblings a million dollars to create whatever they want to do," she says. "That's four million dollars that I don't need." To read more of Haddish' interview, check out the September issue of Glamour -- on newsstands now. (Eonline)

Dwayne Johnson is spreading the love around to the people that matter. The actor, 46, posted a heartwarming video on Instagram Monday revealing that he gifted his stunt double Tanoai Reed a custom pickup truck to thank him for 17 years of work. Reed, who is also Johnson's cousin, thought he was doing a behind-the-scenes interview and instead was surprised with the token of appreciation. "Over the course of my career, my stunt double (and cousin) Tanoai Reed has broken multiple bones, severed tendons, torn ligaments & just been an overall dominating bad ass achieving several "Stuntman of the Year" honors," Johnson wrote along with the video. "I had this custom pickup truck delivered just in time to surprise him (he's still recovering from a stunt injury) while we give what he thought was going to be an interview about our careers together." "Not only does Tanoai represent our family and my career with relentless commitment and passion. He also represents an entire Hollywood stunt community that is truly the backbone of our business. Love you so and thank you for the blood, sweat, tears and years," Johnson said. Reed seems overwhelmed by the gift in the sweet video and even sheds a few tears when Johnson reveals the big surprise.

These days she's known for her role as Flaca from Orange Is the New Black, but Jackie Cruz was once famous for something else. The 31-year-old actress first hit our television screens when she and Kourtney Kardashian, 39, shared a steamy make-out session at a club during an episode of Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami in 2009. Cruz recalled their rendezvous on Monday's episode of PeopleTV's Chatter. When asked if she still keeps up with the Kardashians, Cruz, who took a sip of her whiskey cocktail before answering, explained, "I honestly don't keep up because I don't have time." "I'm trying to work, do my own thing," Cruz continued. However, when it comes to Kourtney, there are no hard feelings. "I love Kourtney, she's always -- when we worked together she was a sweetheart." "She continues to be a sweetheart. I just haven't -- we haven't reconnected, but call me girl," Cruz added. In addition to opening up about her kiss with Kourtney, Cruz also shared details about season 6 of OITNB. "I don't have my partner in crime right now," Cruz said in reference to Flaca's best friend Maritza, played by Diane Guerrero, 32. In the latest season of the hit Netflix show, the ladies of Litchfield are separated from one another and forced to adjust to life in maximum security prison. "So, I'm exploring new things, and I believe Flaca always tries to find the light even in the darkest place," Cruz explained. "She does, and you get to see that journey, and I'm just really happy you get to see a different side of Flaca," she added. Catch PeopleTV's Chatter live on Twitter (live.twitter.com/chatter) and streaming on People.com every weekday at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. Season 6 or Orange Is the New Black premiered on July 27 on Netflix. (People)

Alan Alda Has Parkinson's Disease: "It's Like a Puzzle to Be Solved." Alan Alda revealed he has Parkinson's disease in an appearance on CBS This Morning Tuesday. The M*A*S*H star revealed he had been diagnosed with the disease three and a half years ago. "I'm doing great," he told co-hosts Anthony Mason, Norah O'Donnell and Alex Wagner. "And You might be surprised to hear that. I haven't said in public until now that I've been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease." Smiling and upbeat, the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actor insisted he's "had a full life" since his diagnosis. "I've acted, I've given talks, I help at the Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook, I started this new podcast. I noticed that I had been on television a lot in the last couple of weeks talking about the new podcast, and I could see my thumb twitch in some shots. And I thought, 'It's probably only a matter of time before somebody does a story about this from a sad point of view. But that's not where I am." Alda wanted to get a scan after reading an article in The New York Times. "It indicated if you act out your dreams, there's a good chance that might be a very early symptom, where nothing else shows," he said. "By acting out your dreams, I mean I was having a dream that someone was attacking me and I threw a sack of potatoes at them. But what I was really doing was throwing a pillow at my wife!" The 82-year-old actor didn't show any other signs. "The doctor said, 'Why do you want a scan? You don't have any symptoms.' I said, 'If there's anything I can do, I want to do it before things start to show up. Months later -- a little twitch in my thumb." "The thing I want folks to know, and this is not to shortchange people who are suffering with really severe symptoms...but in the very beginning, to be immobilized by fear and think the worst thing has happened to you hasn't happened to you. You still have things you can do. I'm taking boxing lessons three times a week. I do singles tennis a couple of times a week," Alda continued. "I march to Souza music, because marching to march music is good for Parkinson's." After his initial diagnosis, Alda said he didn't spend any time feeling sorry for himself. "I was mainly helping my family not be worried, because it's common for us all to go to the worst thought," the actor said. "But what's interesting is this is a disease that's different for almost everybody who has it. There are some common symptoms, but mostly everybody's different." "Each day is different from the next. One day you wake up and you think, 'Oh, it's over! It's gone!' The next day it's back a little worse. You don't know what it's going to be," he said. The main thing is there's stuff you can do. You know how I look at it? It's like a puzzle to be solved. What do I have to adapt to carry on a normal life? And I enjoy solving puzzles. It's really fun." (Eonline)

DJ Khaled is confident Demi Lovato will be back entertaining fans before too long because she's getting better, according to him. We got Khaled Monday in NYC where he was pumping up his new track, "No Brainer," hard. His mood shifted though when we asked about Demi -- whom he worked with for the soundtrack to "A Wrinkle in Time." He was overflowing with positivity and love for Demi. TMZ broke the story ... Demi's still in the hospital because she's very, very sick following last week's overdose. It might not be easy, but Khaled said, "She's going to get better 'cause God is great." Baby bonus: Khaled's 1-year-old son, Asahd, was there too, and he was talking! Ya gotta see the message HE delivered. (TMZ)

Demi Lovato is in no shape to talk about going to rehab, even though friends and family say she needs it to save her life. Sources with firsthand knowledge tell us the people in contact with her have not even broached the subject of rehab, because she's still not out of the woods after her overdose a week ago. As we reported, she is still very ill, suffering from extreme nausea and a high fever, among other things. We're told doctors are not even predicting when she might get out of the hospital, so there's still time to discuss. Multiple people who have had contact with Demi tell us they have no idea how she will receive the message that she desperately needs rehab. As one source said, "We just don't know where her head is at." Demi can't be forced to go to rehab ... it will have to be her decision. The good news ... she's been receptive about rehab -- she went there in 2010, although she said at the time it was for an eating disorder. She has also celebrated her sobriety in the past, so from all signs she wants to regain it. (TMZ)

'NCIS: New Orleans' Star Zoe McLellan Cleared of Child Abduction Accusations in Nasty Divorce. Zoe McLellan got a big win in court, after getting a big loss in TV, because a judge ruled that uprooting her child to Canada because of a starring role was not child abduction. The ruling was made because McLellan's ex-husband, Jean-Pierre Guy Gillain accused her of child abduction after she took the couple's then two-year-old son, Sebastian, to Toronto after landing a role in the Kiefer Sutherland TV drama, "Designated Survivor." She was previously living in Louisiana while working on "NCIS: New Orleans," but switched locations when she got the new gig. The judge in the ex-couple's case officially ruled that the move up north was not child abduction, nor was it in bad faith, explaining it was merely a "result of Mother's work in a field in which it was known to both parties she may need to work outside of Los Angeles." It was also ruled that there were no domestic abuse findings. The judge made it a point to say that Sebastian has lived in New Orleans, Los Angeles and now Toronto over his 5 years, and feels the stability in the child's life is about his relationship with the caretaker. He added that the child is "more emotionally secure with Mother than with Father." Gillain was trying to modify child support with the move, but the judge shot that down also, explaining he is still responsible for the $4,000 per month payment. As for any other modification, that was denied also. It has been ordered that they will continue to share joint legal custody of Sebastian, but all tie-breaking decisions shall rest with McLellan. Gillain got a small break in private school tuition, with the judge explaining he won't have to pay a greater amount than a private school he would have chosen himself for the child to attend. The only bad news for McLellan after the big move to Toronto and the victory in court ... "Designated Survivor" was just canceled. (MSN)

Mo'Nique defends 'sister in comedy' Roseanne Barr. Mo'Nique defended her "sister in comedy" Roseanne Barr and asked the public to forgive the former sitcom star for her controversial tweet. Barr made headlines after she tweeted in May that Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, who is African-American and was born in Iran, was as though the "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby." "Roseanne Barr is my sister in comedy and she is my universal sister and what I won't do... is throw her away for making a mistake," Mo'Nique argued on KTLA. "We've all said and done things, baby, that we wish we could talk back and swallow and say ['oops'] but when you're in the public eye, you can't, and it's out there but to put the title of racist on her [is not true]." The former talk show host went on to share her past experience with Barr and said she had nothing but nice things to say about her. "When I had the 'Mo'Nique' show and there were big, major, black superstar talent that had white representatives and they told their talent that show was 'too black' and we really don't want you to go on there," Mo'Nique recalled. "But there was a white woman named Roseanne Barr that showed up for me when people that looked like me [didn't]." The 50-year-old said Barr didn't hesitate to come on her show and offered her advice at the time that stuck with Mo'Nique all these years. "That woman was giving me some beautiful words and she told me, 'Mo'Nique, I'm going to tell you right now baby, they're going to consider you difficult. They're going to call you the B-word because you're a woman who won't lay down and take that foolishness." Mo'Nique went on to say while Barr "made a mistake" and "said something out-of-line" we should forgive her. "Yes, my sister made a mistake and she said something that I know she wishes you could take back," she shared before adding, "But what I would ask you is that we don't throw her away ... I know what it is ... to be thrown away based on a lie." Speaking in her first national television interview since the scandal, Barr told Fox News' Sean Hannity last week that she was "so sad that people thought" her tweets about Valerie Jarrett were "racist." "I've apologized a lot, it's been two months," Barr said. "I feel like I have apologized and explained and asked for forgiveness and made recompense, that's part of my religion." (PageSix)

Soap Operas Threaten to Boycott Daytime Emmys, Call for Transparency and Integrity. The soap operas are facing some drama off-screen. According to a new report from Deadline, all four of this year's Daytime Emmy nominees for Outstanding Drama Series -- The Bold and the Beautiful, General Hospital, Days of Our Lives and The Young and the Restless -- signed and sent a joint letter to the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences chairman Terry O'Reilly and interim president and CEO Adam Sharp on Monday calling for an overhaul of the current process. The demand for change was sparked by Patrika Darbo's recent award revocation. The actress won the 2018 Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Guest Performer in a Digital Daytime Drama Series for her performance in Amazon's The Bay The Series. However, it was withdrawn shortly after by NATAS because of a submission error. Darbo was found to be ineligible for the category after appearing in a prior season. "While the Daytime judges found each performance worthy of distinction, and the investigation determined that neither performer was involved in the selection of categories in which their performances were submitted, prior-season appearances are nonetheless a disqualifying violation of the guidelines for the category," NATAS said in a statement in June. "Ms. Darbo's Daytime Emmy Award and nomination and Mr. Calabro's nomination have been withdrawn. Other nominations in the category will remain, but no Emmy Award will be presented in the category this year." Days later, Darbo penned an open later published by Deadline and suggested that the entire submission and voting process be audited. "They should have vetted each and every submission and then notified those submitting of any submission errors in advance of the voting and the ceremony. I understand that in my category there were at least four submission errors. NATAS was made aware of these potential errors two days prior to the ceremony and made a conscious decision not to deal with it until after the ceremony was over," she wrote. "These errors were then not brought to light until after the Daytime Emmys were presented and awarded, meaning that other actors who did properly submit have now lost their chance at winning a Daytime Emmy." The star also pointed to the Supporting Actor in a Digital Drama winner whose submissions had allegedly broken a rule, yet he was allowed to keep his statue. "NATAS determined after the fact that the rules for Supporting Actor and his show were 'ambiguous,'" Darbo wrote. The daytime soap operas seem to be in agreement as they reportedly outlined ways to change the current process to increase transparency and integrity in their letter, signed by executives from all four shows. Their concerns included determining voter eligibility, producing a written process for handling voting issues, an audit of the voting, not knowing winners in advance of the ceremony and for a separate team to produce the award show. "We are disheartened by the recent events involving NATAS and the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards competition and the decisions made by NATAS regarding the Digital categories of Supporting Actor and Guest Star," the letter read, according to Deadline. Per the report, the four shows wrote their goal is "bring integrity back" to the competition and noted that they "are united in their decision not to participate in the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward until these important issues are resolved." In response to the letter, O'Reilly said in a statement issued on Monday, "Today I received correspondence raising concerns about some elements of the 2018 Daytime Emmy Awards and concerns over its administration. We have great confidence in the integrity of our Emmy awards system, and believe it effectively honors the best work being done in Daytime Television today. That having been said, we always take concerns about our systems seriously...and out of an abundance of caution I have instructed that outside counsel be retained to evaluate these concerns and conduct an independent look at them."

French Montana was just targeted in a home invasion -- at least 2 armed robbers busted into his Calabasas home early Tuesday, and cops are currently on the scene. Law enforcement sources tell us they got a call to French's crib around 9 AM. We're told the crime happened several hours before that, but it wasn't reported until later. French and an unknown number of people were home at the time. It's unclear if anyone in the home was injured, but we know no one required hospitalization. We don't know what, if anything, the robbers took ... cops are still investigating and don't have any suspects yet. (TMZ)

Slash's estranged wife is on a search-and-destroy mission to find the person she says is putting her children at risk and accusing her of being a horrible mother. Perla Ferrar filed docs in divorce court over hundreds of Instagram posts that reference private family info, as well as information and photos relating to the children's activities and whereabouts. Perla says the posts also accuse her of being an "unfit mother and child abuser." In the docs, Perla says the culprit is most likely someone connected to Slash. She goes even further, insinuating it's his live-in girlfriend, and says she even asked Slash for any information he might have about the account. Interestingly, the IG handle for the account is "altperlafhudson." She says Slash initially said he would cooperate, but according to the docs ... he reneged once it became clear the offender was someone "with private direct access to the Hudson family." According to the docs, most of the incriminating posts were deleted shortly after she asked Slash for the info. Perla wants the court to force Slash's internet service provider to disclose all IP addresses that have been used to control the IG account in question. (TMZ)

Nicole Eggert ran to court Monday for a restraining order against Scott Baio's crisis manager, claiming he's been conducting a smear campaign against her online, calling her "mentally ill and unstable." According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Eggert claims since November, Brian Glicklich "publicly harasses me online and in the media. He threatens to ruin my reputation, career and constantly makes libel (sic) comments about my mental health." She says Glicklich has told her she "will pay" for going after Scott, claiming he sexually abused her when she was minor. The D.A. has investigated and declined to prosecute citing the statute of limitations. Eggert says she's now seeking therapy for emotional distress because of Glicklich's comments. She says, "Victim shaming is a horrible thing to do to someone." She was asking the judge to ban Glicklich from making any comments about her on social media, but the judge rejected her request, citing the First Amendment. The judge did order Glicklich to stay 100 yards away from Eggert and stop harassing her. We reached out to Glicklich, who told us, "Nicole Eggert's efforts to silence my work on behalf of Scott Baio is wrongheaded and based on the judge's order was dead in the water." (TMZ)

The world's top modeling agencies screw their famous clients by urging them into surgery, cramming them into apartments and controlling their dating lives ... according to a new lawsuit. Model Louisa Raske filed a class action lawsuit against Major Model Management, Wilhelmina, Next, Elite and other top tier agencies claiming the companies instructed models to undergo medical procedures for weight loss and to attain the all-important thigh gap. In the suit, she also says the agencies tried to run their social lives. For instance, a model named Eleni Tzimas says she was told by Elite to attend high-profile events because people like Donald Trump would be there. Another claims her agency encouraged her to break-up with her bf, who was in the military, so she could date an "a-list celebrity or professional athlete." Personally, Raske says her agency, Next, used one of her shots on a L'Oreal hair product without ever paying her. She eventually got paid $31k, but insists she was owed more. Another model, Marcelle Almonte, says her agency, MC2 Models, crammed her into a 2-bedroom Miami apartment with at least 8 other models, and charged $1,850 per month. Doesn't sound like that much, except market value on the place was only $3,300 per month. The plaintiffs are suing for unpaid wages and other damages. (TMZ)
