After her safe return to family nine months later, the crime victim chose to be a child safety activist. In addition, she's been able to find true happiness with her own family. One look at her Instagram account and you'll see the Smart family loving life together. "There is nothing so important in recovery as support. It's finding the people who love you, care about you, and want the very best for you no matter what. Each of us will meet so many people in life, many of them will be kind, lovely people but at the end of the day you want to surround yourself with the ones who will stick by you," Elizabeth recently shared on Instagram while posing with her husband and their two kids. "And you know you can lean on them, and they on you in return because we all experience pain in this life and we all deserve to be loved." She added, "For me these are the people that I care about most. I am one of the lucky ones to have a kind and loving biological family. However not every family is made up of people who have similar DNA. Families can include friends, teachers, counselors, therapists, coworkers, basically anyone who you love, trust, and they have your back."

Hugh Grant Says He Should Have Gotten Married Sooner. After being one of Hollywood's longtime bachelors, Hugh Grantis a married man. The Golden Globe winner tied the knot for the first time at 57 years old last month, making Swedish television producer Anna Eberstein his wife after years of dating and three children together. While stopping by Today to promote his upcoming miniseries, A Very English Scandal, the star dished on his new life as a husband. "It's really nice. I can't pretend it isn't," he told Savannah Guthrie of married life. "I should have done it before." Without saying too much, the actor complimented his off-screen leading lady. "I'm just lucky. I'm lucky," he continued. "I've got a great wife. I love her." Short, sweet and to the point! In addition to being a newlywed, the actor is also a father times five -- a duty that can get a bit intense when it comes time to travel. "It's unspeakable," he quipped of being on the move with toddlers. In addition to the three children he has with Eberstein, Grant also shares two kids with ex Tinglan Hong -- all of which he fathered in the last seven years. Needless to say, the star's family life is very full these days. "Then you go through that moral torment of, 'Do I actually travel with them or do I make an excuse, so they have to go with their mom or a nanny?'" he quipped. "I've done it because you feel so smug when you get to the other end -- you've done your bit." Despite his jokes, his ex and longtime friend Elizabeth Hurley has only had the good things to say about Grant's turn as a father. "He's an enchanting dad -- really, really sweet. Having these kids has transformed him from a very miserable person into a fairly miserable person," she previously said on Watch What Happens Live. "It's improved him. He's gone up the scale."

Michael Douglas Praises Catherine Zeta-Jones' Success: "She Earned It." Michael Douglas may just be Catherine Zeta-Jones' biggest fan. As the Hollywood star celebrated the upcoming release of Ant-Man and the Wasp this week in Hollywood, he couldn't help but have his wife on his mind. While fans may think of her big screen projects like Chicago, The Mask of Zorro, Traffic and other hits, Catherine has her hands in a lot of projects. "She's branching out in a couple other areas. She's got a whole branding line of Casa Zeta-Jones and she's on QVC and she's an entrepreneur and I totally support her," he told E! News' Will Marfuggi ahead of the film's release next month. "The acting roles, particularly for ladies at a certain age, become much more difficult. This is something where you can actually control your life so she really enjoys it." Earlier this month, the Academy Award winner made headlines for her wide-ranging interview with The Mirror. Catherine looked back on her career and explained how she came into her own. "One thing I'm not is humble anymore. I'm sick of being humble. I really am. 'So sorry I'm rich. So sorry I'm married to a movie star. So sorry I'm not so bad looking.' No sorrys. Enough," she told the outlet. "All that is important to me now is my work." While Michael was unfamiliar with the interview, he was proud to say his wife has earned her success. "She comes from humble roots. She's a humble young lady," he shared. "If you got it, flaunt it. She's probably saying I've worked hard enough. She earned it." For Michael, he certainly earned a spot in Marvel's latest sequel. Hitting theatres everywhere on July 6, the film finds Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) being both a super hero and a father as he receives a new mission to fight alongside The Wasp (Evangeline Lilly). "These aren't little sequels. These are big sequels," Michael told us in a separate interview before revealing how much his kids love being on set. "On the first one, they were there a lot and that's part of the joy of coming back again and they know Paul, they know Evangeline. The set is like Disneyland. If you get bored watching other actors, you can watch the stunt action on another set or the green screen... all of this to see." As for the possibility of seeing Catherine in a Marvel movie, Michael admits that's not his decision. He is, however, impressed with the amount of roles given to women in their various films. "They certainly are advancing the number of ladies. In this one alone, Evangeline has become a super action hero. And then we're introducing the world to Hannah John-Kamen as the ghost who is quite an amazing actress and of course Michelle Pfeiffer so they are broadening pretty quickly." (Eonline)

Jesse Williams and sports journalist Taylor Rooks are trying to keep their relationship low-key but did a terrible job of it Tuesday night as they slipped out of a strip club together! The "Grey's Anatomy" star and 26-year-old SportsNet New York reporter -- who's made her name landing interviews with huge athletes -- started the night with dinner in Bev Hills at Matsuhisa, before hitting up Crazy Girls in Hollywood. They did that thing where they walked out the door separately -- around 3 AM, btw -- but ultimately got in the same ride. Pretty splashy public debut for the couple ... who've been rumored to be together for about a month now. Our sources say Jesse's finally enjoying the single life -- despite the fact he's now paying just over $100k per month in child and spousal support to his ex-wife, Aryn Drake-Lee. We're told Jesse's just focused on being happy. We're guessing Taylor will help him achieve that goal. (TMZ)

Pete Davidson wants to be sure he looks his very best when he ties the knot with Ariana Grande -- so he's enlisted the help of "Queer Eye" fashion expert Tan France to prep his wedding wardrobe. France, 35, told Page Six he'll "absolutely" be assisting with the 24-year-old "SNL" star's attire for the big day. "He asked if I'd help him, the answer is yes." Back in March, the silver-haired style pro went shopping with Davidson for a memorable "Saturday Night Live" sketch -- although at the time, Davidson was hoping to spiff up his closet to impress then-girlfriend Cazzie David's family. In the clip, France gave the comedian's self-proclaimed "guido trash" aesthetic a "cool upgrade," swapping his neon shirts and baggy sweatpants for sophisticated coats and fitted denim. During the "Queer Eye" star's recent appearance on "Watch What Happens Live," he confirmed that he "just went shopping with [Davidson] a couple of days ago," and congratulated Davidson on his engagement to Grande. "I'm very, very, happy for them. I couldn't be happier," France told host Andy Cohen. "I think if anybody finds love, that's amazing. I will always support that." (Page Six)

Camille Grammer says she and ex-husband Kelsey Grammer are anything but amicable. On Tuesday, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum, 49, responded to a fan on Twitter who shared a recent interview of Kelsey, 63, gushing about raising his three children, all under the age of six, with his fourth wife Kayte Walsh, whom he wed just two weeks after his divorce from Camille Grammer was finalized in February 2011. "I don't begrudge him his happiness. What's unnerving is that fact I was there to help him get through some of his hardships and supported his career and his sobriety. I was [right] by his side and he acts like I never existed that's disappointing. We were together through his success," Camille began her series of tweets. She continued, "I was there during the writers' strike and the cancellation of Back to You. We moved the company to our home in Malibu. I sat at his bedside for 8 days straight while he was in the cardiac intensive care unit in NYC. I read him poetry and helped washed his hair. Now I don't exist." Camille and Kelsey, who is a father of seven, were married for nearly 14 years before she filed for divorce from the Frasier star in July 2010. The Bravo star has been vocal about her contentious relationship and co-parenting qualms with her ex, with whom she shares daughter Mason, 16, and son Jude, 13. In November 2017, PEOPLE confirmed that Kelsey must pay Camille 50 percent of his retirement savings from the years they were married. The mother of two concluded her Twitter spree on Tuesday, writing, "We have two beautiful children from our union and I was blessed to have shared those years of my life with him. We have both moved on. Just wished it ended in a more civil manner." In fact, Camille is getting ready for her wedding to fiance David C. Meyer, who proposed in October 2017. "I was nervous to take this step again, honestly," the bride-to-be told PEOPLE in December 2017. "I know that he's the right man for me. I just know it. I'm very blessed to have met the man of my dreams. I know that sounds really corny," she shared. "He's handsome; he's smart; he's supportive; he's a great dad. I'm very impressed with his children and how he's raising his children and his co-parenting. I was very impressed with his co-parenting skills with his ex-wife, and I'm very happy," Camille added.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's friends are warning the 'Jersey Shore' star to cut ties with his baby mama, out of fears her latest domestic violence arrest is a bad omen of what's to come if he stays with her. Sources close to Ronnie tell us he's been trying hard to have a good relationship with Jen Harley because he's worried she'll take full custody of their daughter. We're told that's the only reason he was at a BBQ with her Sunday, hours before she allegedly dragged him outside their car. Ronnie's friends are telling him it's time to quit playing family man and look out for his safety and his daughter's, and they say that means staying away from Jen. We're told friends are also advising him to handle the custody situation in court, because there's no upside to reconciling with Jen at this point. TMZ broke the story, Harley allegedly attacked Ronnie in their car on the way home from a Vegas BBQ. We're told their 2-month-old daughter, Ariana, was in the car at the time ... and there's growing concern she could be caught in the middle of any future fights. Harley was also named the suspect in a battery investigation after she allegedly spit on and hit Ronnie 3 weeks ago during an argument over their daughter and dead dog. 'Jersey Shore' cameras weren't rolling during Jen and Ronnie's latest incident, but we're told their constant fighting will be a featured story line on the show. (TMZ)

Tommy Lee goes after Howard Stern. Tommy Lee can't believe Howard Stern would even suggest he has anything to do with Heather Locklear's problems. The rocker, 55, took to social media to slam the radio host, 64, for saying that the actress' past relationships with Lee and Richie Sambora may have contributed to her current troubles. "@HowardStern Queen of media! How dare you blame me for Heather's recent troubles! That was like 24 years ago you idiot! #cowardsterntimewarp you should be wishing her well and not bashing me fkhead!!! Wtf is wrong with you? I normally don't respond to this stuff..fking BS!!" he tweeted Monday evening. Last week on his show, Stern brought up Locklear's past relationships while talking about her recent mental health and legal issues. "You know what drove this woman crazy?... She was married to Tommy Lee and Richie Sambora... they made her fking insane," he said, according to Radar Online. Some of Stern's fans have suggested that the comment was taken out of context and was actually made in jest. Locklear, 56, was married to Lee from 1986 to 1993. The next year, she married Sambora, who she stayed wed to until 2006. A rep for Stern's radio show did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (PageSix)

Jerry Seinfeld: Roseanne Barr shouldn't have been fired. Jerry Seinfeld has some thoughts about "Roseanne" and its former leading lady, Roseanne Barr. "I didn't see why it was necessary to fire her," Seinfeld told "Entertainment Tonight." "Why would you murder someone who's committing suicide?" He added, "Yeah, that had to be. But I never saw someone ruin their entire career with one button push. That was fresh." ABC canceled the megahit revival after Barr tweeted a series of racist and anti-Semitic posts, including one about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. The network has since announced a spinoff -- without Barr -- titled "The Conners," which will debut in the fall in the place of the "Roseanne" reboot. Seinfeld, however, doesn't think ABC should've written Barr's character off the show. "I think they should get another Roseanne," Seinfeld said. "They brought [John Goodman's character] Dan Conner back, he was dead and they brought him back. So, why can't we get another Roseanne? There's other funny women that could do that part. You need to get the comic in there. I hate to see a comic lose a job." (PageSix)

XXXTentacion's murder investigation just intensified as cops have officially named a second person of interest. The Broward County Sheriff's office is searching for 22-year-old Robert Allen who may be connected to the killing of the 20-year-old rapper over a week ago. Cops say Allen was on surveillance video at the motorcycle shop in Pompano Beach where XXX was shopping before he was gunned down in his car. It's unclear why cops believe Allen might be connected to the murder. As we previously reported ... cops have already arrested Dedrick Williams for murder and said there were at least 2 other suspects. We broke the story ... the case has expanded beyond the scope of the Broward County Sheriff's Dept., with the U.S. Marshals also getting involved in the case and helping nab Williams. (TMZ)

Harvey Weinstein's insurance company refuses to cover criminal defense costs. Harvey Weinstein's alleged crimes are even too vile for his insurance company -- which filed a lawsuit Tuesday saying that he is not covered for rape. Steadfast Insurance argues it has no responsibility to financially help the disgraced movie mogul -- including reimbursing his $1 million cash bail -- because his policy doesn't cover any "bodily injury" he may cause, and that includes sex crime claims, court papers say. Weinstein had asked Steadfast to foot his legal bills as he battles to stay out of prison following his May 25 arrest for sexually assaulting two women in New York in 2004 and 2013. But Steadfast is asking a judge to confirm that it doesn't have to cover Weinstein, whom it has covered since Walt Disney bought his Miramax film company in 1993, the suit says. "The criminal case is a claim for bodily injury," the suit says. His criminal defense attorney Benjamin Brafman declined to comment. Another Weinstein insurer, Chubb, had already sued to strip him of coverage for 11 pending sexual misconduct lawsuits in February. Chubb argued that the "Shakespeare in Love" producer shouldn't be protected against allegations that he abused over 100 women "for his own personal sexual gratification." "The underlying lawsuits arise out of a pattern of intentional, . . . egregious sexual predatory behavior by Harvey Weinstein which included rape, flashing, groping, fondling, harassing, battering and other sexual assault, all for his own personal sexual gratificationwhich spanned at least the past 30 years," the Chubb suit says. Those actions are not covered under the policy, Chubb explained in court papers. Weinstein pleaded not guilty to three felony counts of rape and criminal sex act charges earlier this month. He faces 25 years in prison if convicted. He's due back in court in September. Nearly 100 women have accused the fallen moviemaker of sexual misconduct, including Hollywood actresses Ashley Judd and Salma Hayek. (PageSix)

Joe Jackson -- the patriarch of the Jackson family -- has died ... TMZ has learned. Family sources tell TMZ, Joe passed away at 3:30 AM Wednesday in L.A. We broke the story ... Joe was hospitalized in June with terminal cancer. His family had been flocking to his bedside since. His wife, Katherine, had been at his bedside as were some of Joe's children and grandchildren. Joe had been battling health problems for some time now. He was hospitalized back in 2016 after coming down with a high fever. But, he bounced back not long after and was seen partying in Vegas. His health was also fragile after a stroke and 3 heart attacks back in 2015. Doctors implanted a pacemaker. Joe may have been the most successful parent managing his children in the history of music. He, with a little help from Diana Ross, engineered the careers of The Jackson 5, and then Michael and Janet Jackson as solo artists. The elder Jackson took a lot of heat from Michael and his siblings for abusing parenting and management practices, including physical brutality. Joe copped to it but, far from apologizing ... he said his methods made his kids successful and kept them out of jail. Michael's dad stood by him during his molestation trial. After Michael's death, Joe was criticized for trying to make money off his son's memory. Joe had 10 kids with Katherine, his wife of more than 60 years. The 2 did not live together and had a strained relationship for the last years of his life, but they frequently interacted. Joe was 89. (TMZ)
