Blac Chyna is now part of the Harvard University community, and she didn't have to pull an Olivia Jade to get there. Chyna has been accepted to take a course at the Harvard Business School -- well, the online version ... but hey, it's still Harvard. The reality star/former stripper got her admissions letter Monday, inviting her to take a course called Business Analytics ... teaching students how to interpret data and make savvy business decisions. The course is a substantial time investment -- 40 hours over 8 weeks. Chyna posted a lengthy reflection on her life earlier this week, saying, "I am working to be the best me." Chyna tells us, "Where I'm at now is a stage of realization and growth! I want to be great for myself and my kids. School is going to help me take things up a couple of notches. People are always talking about me, might as well talk about the good. I'm excited for the next chapter." As for the class -- the material seems daunting. Chyna will learn how to ... -Recognize trends, detect outliers, and summarize data sets. -Analyze relationships between variables. Develop and test hypotheses. -Craft sound survey questions and draw conclusions from population samples. -Implement regression analysis and other analytical techniques in Excel. As we reported ... Rob Kardashian and Chyna recently settled their nasty custody war over their 2-year-old daughter, Dream. Rob was paying $20K per month in support, but now he doesn't have to pay a dime ... and the couple splits medical and school expenses -- but not Chyna's school expenses. So, in a few years, you can hire Kim to defend you, and Chyna to line your pockets. (TMZ)
Pam Anderson leaves gala when Notre Dame gets funds meant for children. Pamela Anderson stormed out of a gala this week when $112,000 earmarked for poor French children went to fire-ravaged Notre Dame cathedral instead. The "Baywatch" star said she was at Tuesday's Olympique Marseille fundraiser to support poverty-stricken children -- when organizers auctioned off a big-ticket item to benefit the Gothic cathedral. "Surely the children suffering in Marseille could have used the 100,000 more than the church that has already received over a billion in donations by billionaires," the actress fumed on Twitter Wednesday. "I hope they will reconsider and give where it is needed," Anderson continued. "To the community here in Marseille where it was intended. And would go much further in making lives better." The 51-year-old blond bombshell was at the gala with her boyfriend Adil Rami, a defender on the Olympique Marseille team, one of France's most decorated soccer clubs. Olympique Marseille didn't reply directly to Anderson's gripes, but told AFP approximately $490,119 was raised for local kids that night. Donations to help rebuild Notre Dame have topped $1 billion after the Gothic gem was damaged by a massive blaze this month. (PageSix)
Martha Stewart had no clue who Chip and Joanna Gaines are. Home renovation sensations Chip and Joanna Gaines were the toast of the Time 100 Gala and were most excited to meet domestic diva Martha Stewart -- who apparently had no idea who they were. The "Fixer Upper" couple, who were recently handed their own Discovery network, were both honored as part of Time's 100 Most Powerful People in the World, after turning their show into a Magnolia design empire. The couple had asked actress Sophia Bush to introduce them to Stewart at the starry bash. Chip told Page Six at the gala, "We were so excited to meet Martha Stewart, but she didn't have the faintest idea who we are, not a single clue. But we don't mind at all, Joanna was so excited to meet Martha and so we asked someone to introduce us. "Martha was very gracious and supportive, it was really wonderful moment for us to meet her." He added of Stewart, "And my gosh doesn't she look great!" When we asked later about the meeting, Stewart insisted she had heard of Chip and Joanna Gaines' growing business empire but didn't immediately recognize them when they were introduced at the Time 100 gala. She told us, "I had never met Chip and Joanna at all before, but their Magnolia magazine is published by my publisher Meredith, and I know they have a lovely family and a TV station." Joanna also told Page Six more about their yet-to-be-named network which will premiere in 2020 and replace Discovery's DIY Network. She said, "It's going to be a 24-hour network, so there's no way it can be all about us. It will include shows about lifestyle, cooking, design, kids, we are looking for the right talent and the right programming." Chip and Joanna also mingled with stars including Julianne Moore and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the event on Tuesday night. Meanwhile Taylor Swift, who performed a stunning closing set at the gala, was on a mission to find "Killing Eve" star Sandra Oh. She said, "I really want to meet Sandra, I'm trying to find her." The pair finally bonded after Swift performed. (PageSix)
Taraji P. Henson, Busy Philipps, Jessica Alba & Olivia Wilde Join Gwyneth Paltrow's In Goop Health Summit. Goop news, beauties! Gwyneth Paltrow's annual wellness summit, In Goop Health, is coming back to Los Angeles bigger and better than ever. The Goop founder and CEO is hosting a day-long event "for the spirit, for the body, for the mind, and for beauty." It will be chock full of panels (with celebrity speakers, no less), mind-focused workshops, exercises and more. Joining the star-studded list of panelists, Goop recently announced that Taraji P. Henson will be speaking at the wellness summit on May 18 in downtown Los Angeles. Previously, the lifestyle brand shared Olivia Wilde, Jessica Alba and E!'s very own, Busy Phillipps would be part of the exclusive panel, with Paltrow leading it. Along with the celebrity speakers, the 46-year-old Academy Award winner will host an intimate conversation with Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love. In addition, Julianne Hough will get the party started with her dance-based workout class. Of course, getting access to the biggest stars in Hollywood, attending transformative workshops and getting a one-of-a-kind experience comes with a hefty price tag. The In Goop Health wellness summit comes with two ticket options. Tickets are $1,000 for the day pass, while the Wellness Weekender Pass retails for $4,500. That package includes a hotel stay, additional events, transportation and more. If you want to save your coin, though, there's still a way to get the Goop experience. Earlier this year, the lifestyle company announced a series was headed to Netflix. "We were speaking to the platform question, and where our people are. They're watching Netflix," Elise Loehnen, the chief content officer of Goop, told Variety about the deal. "Some of the more strategic, bigger stories we want to tell require a TV budget. Obviously, there's no better partner in that." The series is slated to hit the streaming platform in the fall of this year, so you won't have too much FOMO if you can't make the In Health Goop summit. (Eonline)
LeBron James is firing back at a report he's beefing with the L.A. Lakers -- saying it's "NOT TRUE" -- and he can prove it. Bron was working out Wednesday morning when he saw an ESPN report by Dave McMenamin about how Lakers have a lot of work to do to "repair the relationship" with James. Of course, there's been a lot of drama in Lakerville ... the season was a disaster, Magic stepped down, Luke Walton's gone and nobody knows who's gonna fill the head coach position. But, is the relationship between LeBron and the Lakers really fractured? "THAT. IS. NOT. TRUE," LeBron said on Instagram ... "It's not true at all!" He added, "It's just not!" LeBron also pointed out that while he saw the report, he was working out at the Lakers facility -- "I'm actually at the Lakers facility right now ... HAHAHAHA!" There you have it. LeBron James loves the Los Angeles Lakers. (TMZ)
Ex-Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams NEVER fixed up the expensive Lamborghini that he wrecked in Texas last year ... and now the smashed up supercar is up for auction at a HUGE discount!!! Remember, back in May 2018 ... cops found TW's 2017 Lambo Huracan wrapped around a light pole in Frisco, Texas with no driver in sight. Cops later found a drunk Williams trying to bike to the crash scene (he fell down) with the Lambo key still in his pocket. Despite the evidence, he denied being the driver who crashed the car. Suuuuuuure. Instead of taking the car in for repairs, which could cost a FORTUNE -- the car was eventually handed over to the insurance company ... which ultimately decided to auction the wreckage. Now, the car is up for sale through Crashed Toys Dallas -- which specializes in selling used and damaged exotic cars. Starting bid ... $75,000!!! Seems to be a bargain because the estimated retail value is $218,460, according to the site. But, buyer beware -- Crashed Toys says, "Unit is sold as is and without guarantee." The problem, of course ... there's tremendous damage to the front driver's side, including tire damage. If you can fix this baby, it's worth it -- the car goes 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds!!! Bidding ends May 1 ... hope you know a good mechanic!!! As for Williams -- he was initially hit with misdemeanor public intoxication for the incident -- but the charge was dismissed after he paid for the damaged pole and completed an online alcohol awareness course.
