To All the Boys Star Jordan Fisher Says His Wedding Will Be a 'Blending of Tribes and Families'. The actor and Broadway star will tie the knot with his longtime girlfriend Ellie Woods in July. Jordan Fisher and Ellie Woods are just months away from tying the knot. Speaking to PEOPLE on Monday at the Los Angeles premiere of Netflix's To All The Boy: P.S. I Still Love You -- the sequel to the hugely popular romantic comedy, To All The Boys I've Loved Before -- the actor dished on their upcoming wedding. "We're pretty much almost done with wedding planning," said Fisher, who popped the question to his longtime girlfriend in May 2019. "We're getting married in July, it's going to be great. She respects my taste and all my things, and vice versa. We have a great team of people doing so much great work for us and helping us making it a beautiful time." The 2017 Dancing with the Stars champ, 25, said the couple is most looking forward to bringing families and friends together at the event. "We're excited for the people who we're doing life with, and have been doing it with for a long time, to be there," he said. "It's a blending of tribes and families that I'm so excited about -- the idea of seeing this person talk to that person and the worlds colliding." As for their Valentine's Day plans? Since Fisher is currently the lead in the Broadway production of Dear Evan Hansen and has a show that night, the two will celebrate around his schedule. "We'll probably do breakfast in the morning," he said. "She'll go to work, I'll stream on Twitch and I'll go do the show in the evening. Then probably we'll come home, have a glass of wine and watch an episode of Cheer." Fisher and Woods, who are both from Birmingham, Alabama, met when the actor was 13 years old. They "were best friends growing up," he previously told PEOPLE, and after their relationship turned romantic as adults, he knew "pretty much two months into dating" that she was "the one." Woods told PEOPLE last year that the two are planning for a family-packed future together. "His goal in life is to have a family. I'm not an actress or in the entertainment industry in any way, so it was really important for me to find a husband that was grounded and had goals that were the same as mine," she said. "For us to both agree that family was the most important thing that we get out of life was a big sign for me." To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You hits Netflix on Feb. 12. (People)

Lady Gaga Makes Her New Romance With Michael Polansky Instagram Official. Lady Gaga has a life update: she's happily taken, y'all! On Monday afternoon, the 33-year-old pop star took to Instagram to make her new romance with Michael Polansky officially official. "We had so much fun in Miami," she captioned her swoon-worthy post, alongside a romantic pic of her and her beau. "Love to all my little monsters and fans, you're the best!" In the snapshot, the Oscar winner was photographed sitting on top of her boyfriend's lap. The two looked smitten with each other, as they both smiled from ear-to-ear and had their arms wrapped around one another. Moreover, the pair appeared to be on a boat, which was possibly taken during their Miami trip. Over the weekend, Gaga traveled to The 305 to perform at the AT&T TV Super Saturday Night show. Ahead of her appearance at the pre-Super Bowl party, she was spotted packing on the PDA and getting cozy with her boo thang. At the time, E! News confirmed Michael's identity and learned he is the CEO of the San Francisco-based Parker Group. "He didn't want to be known yet and neither did Gaga but they decided at the Super Bowl to let it be public," an insider told us. "She's really into him! They are opposite of each other, which all-around is a good thing for her. He's very well off, smart and an investor. He definitely cares a lot about Gaga, but is very low-key and not typically one for the public eye." And while the two got people talking during their mini getaway, this isn't the first time they've put their romance on display. A separate source told E! News that Michael was the mystery man Lady Gaga kissed on New Year's Eve. "She's been dating the same guy for over a month. They've been seeing each other since before the holidays and she's crazy about him," the insider shared. "He's the same guy she spent New Year's with and they had already been seeing each other for a weeks." The insider added, "They've been out and about in LA and spending a lot of time at her house. She's taking him with her everywhere she goes and they don't want to be apart." Gaga's new romance comes only a few months after she was seeing audio engineer, Dan Horton. However, the two seemingly called it quits after nearly three months of dating. From the looks of the pop star's latest 'Gram post and her fun time in Miami with her new boo, she looks happier than ever. (Eonline)

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel Make First Public Appearance Since Co-Star Drama. All appears to be well between Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. The married couple made a public appearance together at The Sinner season three premiere in Los Angeles, marking their slow but steady return to the spotlight following the public drama with Timberlake's Palmer co-star, Alisha Wainright. Biel, who starred in The Sinner's first season and is now one of the show's producers, walked the premiere's red carpet solo and met up with Timberlake inside the event, where they posed for photos. The 7th Heaven alum looked as dapper as ever in a black and white plaid blazer, white button-up blouse, black pencil skirt, black pumps and dangling earrings. Her hair was styled in a sleek, loose bun on top of her head. Timberlake opted for a similar pattern, although his navy blue plaid suit was more subtle than his wife's blazer. The pair looked as happy as ever in the photos, so it seems as if they have worked through their struggles. In November, the singer made headlines when he was photographed holding hands with Wainwright during a group outing with the Palmer cast. In another photo of the night out in New Orleans, Wainwright's hand is seen resting on Timberlake's thigh. A source told E! News at the time that "absolutely nothing going on between them," but a few weeks later, Timberlake took the narrative into his own hands by addressing the photos on Instagram. In his comments, he said the photos were the result of a drunken night where he acted irresponsibly, but maintained that there was nothing deeper going on between him and his co-star. "I stay away from gossip as much as I can, but for my family I feel it is important to address recent rumors that are hurting the people that I love," he started off. "A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgement - but let me be clear - nothing happened between me and my costar" the star continued. "I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son. I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that. I am incredibly proud to be working on Palmer. Looking forward to continuing to make this movie and excited for people to see it." A source told E! News that Timberlake felt the public apology was necessary because of how public the drama was. Basically, he wanted to eat crow in an effort to make up for embarrassing Biel. "He feels terrible that this happened and for putting Jessica through the public scrutiny," the source said. "He knows she doesn't deserve any of this and that he messed up." As the insider continued, Timberlake "hopes by addressing what happened and apologizing to her publicly that they can put this behind them and start to move on. Justin feels like the story isn't dying and hopes this will be the end of it. He always tries to keep his private life private, but he knows he made a big mistake in public and now has to own up to it." In the time since his apology, the couple (who got married in 2012 and share a 4-year-old son, Silas) have been seen happily getting dinner together and showing public displays of affection on Instagram. Yeah, they're good! (Eonline)

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski Took Their Relationship to the Next Level Thanks to This "Sneak Attack." Ever wonder how to ask your significant other if they're ready to move in together? Well, Emily Blunt has the perfect advice. In an interview with Harper's Bazaar U.K. she says she didn't necessarily ask John Krasinski if he was ready to make that commitment, she just did it. "I didn't ever see it as a move to the US, but gradually more and more of my stuff just accumulated at his house, and then suddenly I was living in L.A.," she tells the publication. In fact, the Quiet Place star reveals she'd just bought a new place in London and intended to live there with her sister, but clearly her relationship with The Office star took her down a different path. Nonetheless, Blunt jokes she wouldn't have done it any other way. "I think it's the best way to do it -- just to sneak-attack them, rather than turn up with trunks," she quips. Since their marriage in July 2010, the pair has relocated from the west coast to the east coast and made a lovely home for themselves in Brooklyn. Although, Blunt would "love" to once again live in London one day. That being said, she tells the magazine Brooklyn is the "next best thing." And luckily for her, New York is a melting pot of people and cultures, so there are more than a few expats for her to reminisce over her home land with. "I adore Brits, so I gravitate towards them over here, because I miss the irreverence and the silliness and the cavalier attitude," she shares. "Emily Mortimer, Sienna Miller and I get together for roasts and rotate who does it." When she's not with her friends, the mother-of-two explores Brooklyn, where the youths seem to be rather unimpressed by her every day appearance. The 36-year-old reveals she typically walks around the city in "a baseball hat and tracksuit bottoms," which makes it somewhat difficult to explain to kids she's Mary Poppins. Instead of reacting with glee, she says more often than not the kids give her a look that says, "no it f--king is not" the British nanny. Nowadays, she's playing a different type of role, one where she's the mother of three kids trying to navigate a post-apocalyptic world. It's a role that was quite literally made for her since she says husband John Krasinski wrote the script with her "in mind." Of course, she didn't spoil the ending for A Quiet Place: Part II, but fans can see her in action when it's released nationwide on March 20. The March issue of Harper's Bazaar is on sale from February 5, 2020. (Eonline)

Shannen Doherty is in the battle of her life after revealing her cancer has returned ... and this time it's even more aggressive. The former '90210' star said Tuesday she's been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Shannen also revealed the cancer came back last year -- before her former costar Luke Perry's death -- and has kept it private until now. As for why she revealed her diagnosis Tuesday ... Shannen says her condition was going to become public this week as part of her lawsuit against State Farm over unpaid claims following damage to her house caused by last year's devastating Wolseley fire. She said, "I'd rather people hear it from me. I don't want it to be twisted, a court document. I want it to be real and authentic. I want to control the narrative. I want people to know from me." Shannen said of Luke's sudden passing, "Why wasn't it me? It was so weird for me to be diagnosed and then somebody who was seemingly healthy to go first." You'll recall Shannen -- who said the only person she had told about her diagnosis was Brian Austin Green -- was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. She went into remission in 2017. She sued her management company claiming they mismanaged her insurance premiums and let her policy lapse at a critical time when doctors could've done an early detection of her breast cancer. They've since settled out of court. (TMZ)

Nick Lachey Responds After Jessica Simpson Details Their Marriage in Her Book: 'We've All Moved On'. Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson split in 2005 after seven years together. Nick Lachey wishes ex-wife Jessica Simpson nothing but the best. On Monday, the singer, 46, visited the Today show with his wife Vanessa Minnillo Lachey to chat about the new Netflix dating experiment series they co-host, Love Is Blind. During the interview, Hoda Kotb asked Nick if he knew of the revelations that Simpson uncovers in her new memoir Open Book, which details their marriage and split in 2005. "I'll be honest, I obviously haven't read the book, so I don't know what she said or what she revealed there, but I'm certainly happy for her and her life, I know she is happy for us," the 98 Degrees band member said. "There's definitely a mutual respect there, so that's, you know -- obviously it was a long time ago; we've all moved on," Nick continued. Also, in the interview, Vanessa, 39, showed confusion when Kotb said the couple had sent Simpson, 39, a gift during a milestone in her life, saying, "It wasn't us, but thank you, whoever sent it from us," adding, "I didn't. I don't know her address." In Simpson's new book, out on Tuesday, she writes candidly about her relationship with Nick, whom she met in 1998. The two tied the knot in 2002, and their marriage was showcased on the MTV reality show Newlyweds. "He was my first love," Simpson recently told PEOPLE. "We were young and pioneering our way through reality television, always mic'd and always on," said the mom of three, who is married to former football star Eric Johnson. "We worked and we were great at it but when it came time to being alone, we weren't great at it anymore." "We really got crushed by the media and by ourselves," said Simpson, who asked for a divorce in 2005. "I couldn't lie to our fans and I couldn't give somebody hope that we were this perfect golden couple." While looking back on their time together, Simpson said she respects Nick "very much." "I was really young and my success hadn't really begun. He knew me as this young innocent 18-year-old that had never been introduced to the world in so many ways. I went straight from my father to him. Nick's very smart," she said. "He was eight years older than me, but he was also young." The author also said she and Nick "meant a lot to each other and we always will." "I want to be very respectful because I married him for a reason and we were together for seven years for a reason," Simpson said. "He has a family now and I would never say anything to disrespect that." Love Is Blind premieres on Netflix on Feb. 13. (People)

Tony Romo used EMAIL to break up with Jessica Simpson back in 2009 -- and it was all because he was pissed she had reconnected with ex-BF John Mayer. Simpson spells out the whole thing in her new book "Open Book" -- in which she finally breaks her silence on the demise of her 2-year relationship with the former Dallas Cowboys QB. "[Tony] accused me of seeing John behind his back. I hadn't cheated on Tony at all, but I could not lie and say I hadn't even seen him.," Simpson said. Jessica told Tony "nothing happened" ... but Romo didn't buy her story because ... well, John Mayer. "Tony didn't believe that for a second. And within that second, he broke up with me right there. Two years, gone with an email." Simpson says she knew Romo wouldn't blab to the media about the real reason for the split because "it would imply that he wasn't enough for me." Jessica says eventually "Tony soon realized I was telling the truth. Of course, I didn't cheat on him." "But our breakup had been so ugly that it shocked me into realizing it had been necessary." As for Mayer, Jessica claims the musician made a full-court press to put a ring on it. "[John] had said all these things, practically asking my parents for my hand in marriage while I was in a serious relationship. Swearing to me up and down that he was a changed man." "Now here I was, ready to pledge my love back, and to kiss him as the curtain came down. And it fell on my head ... All this time, all those years, he was breaking up with me to torture himself enough to get good material." In other words, Jessica was convinced John just wanted to try to be with her so he could get content for his music. "It felt inevitable to be in love with John, so I continued talking to him for months. But I knew now not to let him get close enough to shoot me down again." Everyone ultimately moved on with their lives ... Jessica married ex-NFL tight end Eric Johnson. Romo married beauty queen Candice Crawford. And Mayer moved on to Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry. But he's currently single. Fun Fact -- Jessica famously bought Tony Romo a $100,000 boat as a birthday present before they broke up ... but told TMZ at the time she wasn't going to ask for it back! (TMZ)

Danielle Bregoli came THIS close to cashing a $450,000 check in exchange for speaking at a conference in Hong Kong ... but just like with Dog the Bounty Hunter, it was a total scam. Here's the deal ... reps for Bhad Bhabie were contacted by people purporting to be from the office of Peter Woo -- a billionaire Chinese businessman -- offering her a massive payday to make a quick speech at a charity event in Hong Kong. If this sounds eerily familiar ... it should, because these are the same scammers who targeted Dog the Bounty Hunter last year. And, just like Dog, Danielle saw all the red flags. Bhad Bhabie's team says the scammers wanted her to cash a check for $450,000 and then wire them back $300,000. Another red flag -- the website for Peter Woo Philanthropies is a carbon copy of the charity websites used in the scams targeting Dog and other famous folks. Other perks included private air travel, luxury accommodations and a $10,000 wardrobe budget. Yeah, too good to be true. It's funny ... Bhad Bhabie kept up her end of the bargain, sending a wire upon receipt of the check. She wired $0.01 with this memo, "SUCK MY D***. LOVE, BHAD BHABIE." As we've reported ... other celebs targeted in similar scams include "Million Dollar Listing" star Madison Hildebrand, "Baywatch" hotties Donna D'Errico and Krista Allen, 'Housewives' star Kim Zolciak and Kim Kardashian's BFF, Jonathan Cheban.

Danny Masterson is firing back at his rape accusers over their stalking lawsuit against him and the Church of Scientology ... calling BS on the whole case. The "That '70s Show" star filed new docs -- obtained by TMZ -- asking a judge to toss the case on grounds the women, according to Danny, haven't specified what they're accusing him of doing. You'll recall ... 4 women filed suit against Danny and the Church claiming they conspired to stalk them and invade their privacy. They cited multiple incidents of being followed, having their homes surveilled and their property damaged ... which they believe was in retaliation for going public with rape claims against Danny, who is a Scientologist. In the new docs, filed by attorney Andrew Brettler, Masterson claims the 4 women -- two of whom filed as Jane Does -- are engaged in a "shameful money grab." He says the women are ex-girlfriends who are trying to humiliate him and the Church but doing it anonymously to avoid scrutiny. He'd already denied all of their claims, but now ... he's doing it again in court docs. He says there was a criminal investigation 2 years ago, and no charges were filed. Danny says he wants a judge, at the very least, to force the women to disclose their names publicly and, more importantly, he wants them to specify what he allegedly did wrong. He claims they're far too general with their allegations, and he's demanding they get specific. There's a hearing on the matter scheduled for March, at which point the court is expected to issue a ruling. (TMZ)

Lyssa Chapman, the daughter of Dog the Bounty Hunter, has now been charged with 2 counts of harassment after her arrest in Hawaii. According to docs, obtained by TMZ, each count Lyssa is charged with relates to a different person -- one man and one woman. The woman, according to Lyssa, is her girlfriend. It's unclear what her relationship is to the man she allegedly harassed. Both counts are misdemeanors. As we first reported ... Lyssa was arrested in Honolulu last Thursday. At the time of the arrest, Lyssa told us cops were called because she was having a fight with her GF. Lyssa added that when officers arrived, she put her hand up in order to stop them from entering her room. She said she plans to file a report for police misconduct against the officers for the way they arrested her. She claims a cop grabbed her by the arm. Although she was initially arrested for resisting arrest, she was not charged with that. (TMZ)
