Jana Kramer and Husband Mike Caussin Renewed Wedding Vows. Jana Kramer has revealed that she and husband Mike Caussin renewed their vows earlier this month. The 34-year-old One Tree Hill star and country singer made her comments in an Instagram post on Sunday, New Year's Eve. She shared a message in which she reflected on her life over the past year. It included a reconciliation with her husband and a heartbreaking event; she had said earlier this month that she had suffered a miscarriage. She and Caussin, 30, first wed in 2015 and share a 1-year-old daughter. In her post, Kramer revealed that she and her husband renewed their vows on December 2 -- a week before she revealed her miscarriage. Kramer posted several photos from their vow renewal ceremony, which took place on a beach in Hawaii, as well as a pic of them with their daughter, Jolie, and their dog. "2017........you broke my heart, you broke me down, you made me question everything, but damn did you make me strong," she wrote. "You taught me patience, you taught me family was everything. You made me believe not only in myself but the power of forgiveness. You turned me into the women I always wanted to be." "I have NO clue what 2018 has in store for me but I've never been more ready to live day by day and enjoy each day as it comes at me," she wrote. "Here's to always believing in love and fighting for it.... (Pics from Hawaii Dec 2nd...vow renewal) . . . 2018, I'm ready for you!" Days before and after the vow renewal ceremony, Kramer had shared photos of her and Caussin walking on the beach in Hawaii. In August 2016, it was revealed that Kramer and Caussin separated after a year of marriage and it was later reported he had been unfaithful to her. He later underwent treatment for sex addiction at a rehabilitation facility. Kramer and Caussin were later seen together again. This past September, Kramer said on Bachelor alum Olivia Caridi's podcast, Mouthing Off that she and Caussin were "actively working" things out. "Trust is a hard thing when it's broke to get back," she said. "We're in so much therapy it's not even funny. But it's good, though. I've learned so much about myself in the process. And again, either way we'll come out healthier because of it." Caussin told People in October, "I acknowledge that certain actions and behaviors have caused issues in my marriage and I am deeply sorry for the pain I have caused Jana. I have and will continue to take the steps needed to change who I am as a person in order to be a better husband and father." In November, Kramer posted sweet photos of her with her husband and daughter, including pics from a trip to Disneyland. "A family worth fighting for..." she wrote. (Eonline)

Serena Williams Returns to Tennis With Exhibition Loss 4 Months After Giving Birth. Serena Williams is back on the court after taking most of the year off following the birth of her first child, but her comeback was marred by a loss. On Saturday, four months after she and husband Alexis Ohanian welcomed daughter Alexis Olympia, Serena played an exhibition match against defending French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi. She dropped the first set 6-2, rebounded to win the second set 6-3 and then fell behind 5-0 while losing the match tiebreaker 10-5, according to ESPN. "I'm excited. It's good to be back on the court," Williams said after the match, the outlet reported. "This was such a good time for me...First matches back are always super-incredibly hard, especially after having a baby. It was great. I was glad I could do it here." This marked Serena's first competitive game since she won her record 23rd Grand Slam title at the 2017 Australian Open in January -- when she was nine weeks pregnant. Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley told reporters earlier this month that Williams was "very likely" to return to play at the annual event, which begins on January 15, to defend her Grand Slam title. Serena's husband joined her and cheered her on in Abu Dhabi. "Mama is back in the office," he wrote on Instagram on Saturday. A day earlier, the 36-year-old tennis champion, the world's highest paid female athlete, posted on her Instagram page photos from her pregnancy, including a picture of her at the 2017 Australian Open. "This year has been amazing for me. As it comes to its end I want to share 10 personal moments," she wrote. "1. The day I found out I was pregnant. I had to pretend I everything was normal but I was dying inside. After all I had a grand slam to play. 2. Melbourne 7 weeks pregnant 3. Wow I won the Australian Open. I was 9 weeks by than. No one knew outside of [my sister] Venus Williams and my fiance Alexis." She also included pics of her playing tennis when she was over seven weeks pregnant, a photo of herself when she was 24 weeks pregnant, a pic of her a day before she checked into the hospital to give birth, images from her bridal shower, and Vanity Fair's cover of her posing nude while pregnant. Serena's rep had said in April that the tennis star would take maternity leave and take time off from tennis until 2018. Serena's husband, co-founder of Reddit, had also taken paternity leave to bond with their child. (Eonline)

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend go after Pizzagate accuser. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend aren't taking accusations they're involved in a child-sex trafficking ring lightly. On Saturday, Teigen and Legend took aim at alleged journalist Liz Crokin, who rounded up pictures of the couple's 1-year-old daughter Luna dressed in several costumes, and suggested the child is part of the Pizzagate conspiracy. The conspiracy claims high-powered elected officials, such as the Clintons, are part of a child-sex ring through a Washington, D.C. pizza restaurant. In one of the shared photos Teigen, 32, used a pizza emoji. "Apparently dressing my daughter as 'Alice in Wonderland' and a hot dog and having a pizza emoji on Snapchat has to do with pizzagate and being uhhh darksided," Teigen wrote. "Holy sh-t. That thread is wild. Enjoy." "Yeah yeah it's 'just Twitter' but I'm pretty sure this *sick* person is saying we are darksided pizzagate pedophiles who traffic our daughter," the supermodel added. "Ummmmm this is really scary sh-t." Crokin shot back, "What's not OK is trafficking kids as sex slaves which is rampant in Hollywood. Why don't you use your platform to educate people?" Teigen and Legend then decided to get back up. "Anyone know any good lawyers," Teigen tweeted after Crokin claimed the couple socializes in circles with people who "rape, torture & trafficking kids." "You need to take my family's name out of your mouth before you get sued," Legend, 39, chimed in. The couple's public battle with Crokin, who has since lost her Twitter verification, even caught the eye of Chelsea Clinton, who voiced her support. "Chrissy, sending you & beautiful Luna a huge hug," Clinton tweeted. "It is awful & never ok when people threaten or demean any child. I've lost count of the Twitter accounts who've threatened Charlotte with #FGM (female genitalia mutilation). While I never bother to report threats against me, I now report everyone against her." She added in a separate tweet to the fashionista, "It is never silly to worry about your kids. Always here to support you and your family in any way. I'm so sorry you're dealing with this."

Nick Cassavetes has won a major victory -- he has his child back after claiming his baby mama stole their child from him ... TMZ has learned. Nick appeared in an Oklahoma courtroom Friday to square off with Heather Wahlquist over 12-year-old Barbie. Wahlquist was asking the judge for an emergency order to allow her to keep Barbie in her custody, despite the fact that it's a California case. The Oklahoma judge rejected her request. Nick has claimed Heather and her mother essentially stole Barbie and went on the run, despite the fact that the California custody order gave him physical custody effective December 18. Barbie went back into chambers with the judge for about a half hour, and after their talk the judge told Nick he was the one who had current lawful custody, so they left the courtroom together. The famed "Notebook" director tells TMZ Barbie is back in L.A. with him. Heather had claimed Nick neglected Barbie while he had custody and she returned recently with a bacterial infection. She made other claims as well but the Oklahoma judge rejected them. The fight isn't over. They're back in a California family law court January 18. (TMZ)

Backlash continues for Lewis Hamilton after shaming nephew. Formula One champion-turned-toddler fashion critic Lewis Hamilton's "Princessgate" scandal is showing no sign of slowing down. Hamilton was slammed on social media for shaming his young nephew for not following gender norms. He posted a video of the sweet, smiling young boy in the dress on Snapchat, and was heard yelling, "Boys don't wear princess dresses!" After coming under fire, Hamilton (later seen in a meme dressed almost identically to Princess Diana) deleted the video and apologized. Now the British Fashion Council is being urged to drop the fractious F-1 driver from its committee for Men's Fashion Week. Influential fashion criticism Instagram account Diet Prada slammed Hamilton, writing, "We are so sad right now. Thanks for the twitter apologies, but no thanks. We hope you took the time to apologize to your sweet little nephew instead to tell him that what you said is very wrong and that he should be able to dress however he wants. Your words won't harm the majority of us, but they can be really damaging to such a young kid. @britishfashioncouncil, as of now he's still on your current committee list for London Collections: Men. Do you think there could be a better representative for a fashion capital known for being so forward thinking?" (PageSix)

Tamar Braxton says the triggers that led her estranged husband Vincent Herbert to a jail cell on Christmas day were alcohol and a case of jealousy. Tamar tells TMZ, "Co-parenting while going through a divorce is not an easy task. While celebrating the Christmas holiday as a family, after a few drinks and some jealousy, things got a bit out of hand, which is common for most families during the holidays. In the midst of everything our family is going through things got heated and a bit exaggerated." Tamar makes it clear ... "There was no physical interaction between Vince and I on Christmas. While I do not appreciate his lack of respect for our family and him allegedly impregnating another woman, I cannot paint him as a vicious abuser that Vince is not." TMZ broke the story ... Herbert was arrested for spousal assault and taken to jail, where he bailed out after posting $20k. Tamar says, "I'm deeply hurt and saddened that this will be how we remember Christmas 2017, but, my motto is and maintains to be 'Bluebird of Happiness' and nobody will stop my joy and blessings going into the New Year! God Bless!" Tamar went ham a few hours ago on the woman claiming Herbert got her pregnant ... calling her a "whore." TMZ broke the story ... Tamar filed for divorce in October. (TMZ)

Mystery writer Sue Grafton dies at 77. Sue Grafton, the New York Times best-selling author behind the Alphabet Series, died Thursday night after a two-year battle with cancer. She was 77. Grafton's daughter, Jamie, announced the news on the writer's official Facebook page. "She was surrounded by family, including her devoted and adoring husband Steve," Jamie wrote in a message addressed to Grafton's readers. "Although we knew this was coming, it was unexpected and fast. She had been fine up until just a few days ago, and then things moved quickly. Sue always said that she would continue writing as long as she had the juice." The Alphabet Series, about private investigator Kinsey Millhone in the fictional town of Santa Teresa, California, kicked off in 1982 with A is for Alibi. "I was reading an Edward Gorey cartoon book, and it went 'A is for Amy, who fell down the stairs, B is for Basil, assaulted by bears, C is for Clara' ... and I thought, God bless America, what a great way to link titles!" Grafton told The New York Post. "So I wrote as many crime-related titles [alphabetically] as I could think of to see if there were enough for 26 books. Again, not having finished the first. I was completely free to do anything I wanted and had nothing at stake. When that sold, I thought, 'Uh-oh. Now I'm in trouble!'" Set in the 1980s, the series included subsequent titles like B is for Burglar, H is for Homicide, M is for Malice, and T is for Trespass. Natalie Hevener Kaufman and Carol McGinnis Kay also penned a companion book called G Is for Grafton: The World of Kinsey Millhone. Grafton's last entry, Y is for Yesterday, was released this year with Z is for Zero meant as the final installment for release in 2019. Her husband, Steve Humphrey, told the Associated Press "nothing's been written" for the Z book. As he explained, Grafton struggled for an idea while undergoing treatment for a rare cancer of the appendix. "There is no Z," he said. "Many of you are asking (some quite plaintively) what I intend to do when I get to 'the end' of the alphabet," Grafton wrote in a letter published on her website. "I've been consistent in my response which is 'no clue.' I want to see what kind of shape I'm in mentally and physically. I don't want to keep on writing if the juice is gone. These novels about Ms. Millhone take incredible focus, ingenuity, energy, and imagination. If I have the wherewithal, I may write a Kinsey Millhone standalone or two. If I feel I've lost my touch, I'll retire with grace." As far as Grafton's family is concerned, "the alphabet now ends at Y." "Many of you also know that she was adamant that her books would never be turned into movies or TV shows, and in that same vein, she would never allow a ghost writer to write in her name," Jamie wrote. "Because of all of those things, and out of the deep abiding love and respect for our dear sweet Sue, as far as we in the family are concerned, the alphabet now ends at Y." (Entertainment Weekly)
