It’s been 20 years since D2: The Mighty Ducks came out — pause for a moment of silence for our youth, which is now very much R-ing.I.P. — so the cast decided to get together and post pictures on the Internet because that’s what forgotten actors of the ’90s do these days. #nostalgia.
After weeding through the photos that look like a bunch of random people hanging out in Anywheresville, U.S.A., we chose these two that might actually look familiar.
First: “Connie and Guy finally!” Christopher Redman, the husband of Marguerite Moreau, who played Connie, captioned this photo of his wife and Garette Ratliff Henson, who played Guy.
And then there’s this gem: “Flying V!!!! Scott Whyte, Aaron Schwartz, Colombe Jacobsen, mike Vitar, Stephen Herek, rob Lieberman, Vincent LaRusso, @garretth Elden Henden, Carsten Norwgard, Jordan Kerner, Brandon Adams, Danny Tamborelli, Asron Lohr, Maria Ellingsen, Matt Dohery, Shawn Weiss #mightyducks #mD2 #20yearreunion #ducksflytogether.”
Together ducks fly indeed, except, of course, Joshua Jackson, Kenan Thompson and Emilio Estevez, who clearly had better things to do.Full Story
The erstwhile “Lil” Bow Wow isn’t so Lil anymore. Love & Hip Hop star Erica Mena has locked down the 27-year-old rapper after only six months of dating, E! News reports.
“Uhh … he’s actually my fiancé,” Mena said on the red carpet at Saturday’s BET Hip Hop Awards when asked if the 106 & Park host also known as Shad Moss was her boyfriend.
The couple later confirmed the news with an ever so tacky Instagram of her ring and his iced-out Rolex.
“I still can’t believe it’s real,” Mena told New York’s Hot 97 FM of their engagement. “I’m doing things different with this one. I’m protecting this one more than ever.”
The couple first met — and kissed — on 106 & Park. They started dating soon after.
Thirsty for more info? We’re sure these two will be more than happy to lay it all out for you on the newest season of Love & Hip Hop, which premieres in November.Full Story
Keyshia Cole was arrested and booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery after a fight early Friday at Birdman’s house in Los Angeles.
According to the Associated Press, Grammy-nominated R&B singer was arrested around 5 a.m. “after someone initiated a private person’s arrest.”
The 32-year-old was released after posting $46,000 bail Friday afternoon.
Cole and the Cash Money CEO are dating, and from the sounds of things the woman Cole attacked may have been a Cash Money employee.
Sources tell TMZ that the victim is Sabrina Mercadel, who has worked for the company for over a decade. She was one of four people at Birdman’s house when Cole arrived. The singer saw the woman walk out of the bathroom and flew off the handle.
The incident didn’t stop Cole from presenting at the 2014 BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta the next day. Birdman was there too. He performed with Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan.Full Story
On Sunday, Grammy winner Alicia Keys posted an Instagram of her belly painted like a peace sign, all for the love of the “We Are Here” movement, a cause dedicated to social issues from gun control to gay rights.
“It’s you and me on a mission to create a kinder and more peaceful world,” she captioned the portrait. “The #WeAreHere Movement begins today.”
Keys announced plans for the movement at the UN Foundation’s Social Good Summit over the weekend.
“As I prepare to give birth to my new child, I can’t help but think what world I’m bringing the baby into,” she said. “We see the state of the world today and we can all feel the frustration and the desire to do something to make it better. We all want to do something but oftentimes we don’t feel empowered. That is why I created 'We Are Here.’ Because it’s not about me. It’s about we.”
She also donated $1 million to the cause. Keys is due in December, by the way.

Finally! After months of rumors, a True Detective lead at long last has been confirmed. Colin Farrell will star in the second season of Nic Pizzolatto’s HBO series, this time set in Los Angeles.
“I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited,” the Irish actor told the Sunday World.
And there you have it.
Now we only have three more parts to obsess over. Creator Pizzolatto told the Daily Beast that “there are four central roles” in Season 2, and word is the show will center around the “secret occult history of the transportation system” and involve a corrupt city businessman’s murder.
“Three police officials from different cities” come together to solve the case, Farrell revealed.
The pool of actors said to be in the running is comically large, though neither Friday Night Lights star Taylor Kitsch nor Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss have denied the rumors.
“It’s always flattering to be mentioned for a job,” Moss said.
According to Farrell, filming will start in the next few months. …Full Story
Megan Hilty and Brian Gallagher geared up for baby’s arrival in the days before the big to-do. “Thanks @TheBabyGuyNYC for teaching us how to properly install our @UPPAbaby car seat!” she tweeted on Tuesday.
Megan Hilty gave birth to her first child, Us Weekly reports.
The Smash star and husband Brian Gallagher welcomed daughter Viola Philomena in New York City on Thursday. How nice of the 33-year-old Broadway veteran to not give her child a name fit for a pet.
“There are no fruits or animals or food in general for her name,” she told E! News back in June.
The couple wed last November in Vegas.Full Story
The celebrity hackers are back. A new wave of naked pictures was released over the weekend, and this time victims include Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Bosworth, Hope Solo, Gabrielle Union, Jenny McCarthy, Lake Bell, Meagan Good, Emily Ratajkowski and Abigail Spencer.
Good, who appeared to be taking a topless selfie in the leaked photo, took to Instagram to slam everyone reposting the pics she said were intended for her husband.
“Evidently we all know how I feel about my t**ties,” she said.
After photos Union sent to husband Dwyane Wade hit the Internet, she told TMZ her legal team will be contacting the FBI. …Full Story
Sometimes you realize, oh wait, I’m a lesbian.
Such was the case with Lauren Morelli, who writes about gay characters on the prison dramedy Orange Is the New Black.
The screenwriter was feeling rather unsatisfied with her budding marriage, according to an essay she penned for Mic in which she revealed she’d much rather read a book than sleep with her new husband. Then, one day, after exploring her sexuality through her work, Morelli discovered she too prefers the company of ladies.
“The sound stage for Orange, where we proudly employ what has to be at least 64% of lesbians in the New York City metro area, is not a place where you can shy away from women or sexuality,” she wrote.
Morelli explained that bringing to life the series’ main character Piper (Taylor Schilling) and her ex-girlfriend Alex (Laura Prepon) helped her come to this surprising conclusion just months after marrying her then-husband, Steve Basilone.
“I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set,” the writer revealed. “I am now out to my family, my friends, and most of my co-workers on Orange.”
Plus the entire Internet. …Full Story
And now we have one more reason to miss the days when Kanye West’s jaw was wired shut.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Mr. Kardashian was performing in Sydney on Friday when he stopped everything and asked the audience to get up and dance.
“I’ve decided I can’t do this song. I can’t do this show until everybody stands up,” West said. “Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s---. Imma see you if you ain’t standing up, believe me, I’m very good at that. No, seriously — I won’t go on with the show unless y’all stand up.”
From there, things escalated quickly.
West remained uncomfortably steadfast in his request, to the tune of singling out audience members and demanding they rise to honor their Lord thy Kanye. The first concertgoer held up her prosthetic leg to prove that she does, in fact, “get special parking and s---,” to which West replied, “Okay, you fine.” …Full Story
In case you missed it, and we sort of hope you did, the woman chosen to represent us from sea to shining sea for the next year is this blonde chick from New York: Kira Kazantsev.
Yes, the Empire State continues to dominate the Miss America pageant or scholarship competition or whatever you want to call it; Miss New York has now won three years in a row.
For the talent portion of Sunday’s show, Kazantsev, a 23-year-old law student, California native (isn’t that cheating or something?) and daughter of Russian immigrants, somehow managed to charm the judges by combining two of the most loathed musical trends of present day, singing Pharrell’s Happy while banging a red plastic cup on the floor, a la Anna Kendrick in Pitch Perfect. For this she won a $50,000 scholarship.
“It’s not your average Miss America talent in terms of singing Broadway tunes or opera,” the beauty queen told the New York Post before the competition. “I’m sticking to what I can do.”
Brave? Yes. Good? Not exactly. Nevertheless, Kazantsev was easy enough on the eyes that the ears managed to forgive. …Full Story
Wait, did Jay Z just announce that Beyonce is pregnant with their second child?
That’s sure what it sounded like when the couple wrapped up their On the Run tour in the City of Light over the weekend.
“We love Paris,” said Jay Z, 44. “It’s special to us because we got engaged here and this is where baby Blue was conceived,” the rapper said of 2-year-old daughter Blue Ivy. So it seems fitting this is where they’d drop the hint — or just straight up tell everyone — that they’re expecting.
During his song Beach Is Better, Jay switched the line “I replace it with another one” to “pregnant with another one.” Social media went cray, naturally. Then the couple, who have been dogged by divorce rumors for months, put on an onstage lovefest to close out the tour.
“I’m your biggest fan. I love you,” said a teary-eyed Beyonce, 33.
Jay Z replied: “Greatest entertainer in the world. I love her. She’s my wife.”
The Paris show was being filmed for an HBO special to air in September, so now we’re obligated to watch.Full Story
Look what Amy Winehouse got for her 31st birthday: a bronze statue in her Camden Town neighborhood of north London. The singer, who died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 at age 27, is portrayed with her signature beehive and touches of diffidence.
Winehouse’s father Mitch said Sunday it was “incredibly emotional” to see the statue he helped design.
“It is like stopping her in a beautiful moment in time,” he told the Associated Press.
The statue, created by sculptor Scott Eaton, shows Winehouse wearing a star of David necklace and a live red rose in her hair. Eaton told the BBC that the statue captured her “attitude and strength, but also give subtle hints of insecurity.”
“The hand on the hip, the turn of the head, the grabbing of the skirt, the turned in foot — these are all small elements that contribute to the personality of the piece,” he said.
Both of Winehouse’s parents and hundreds of fans attended the unveiling. …Full Story
Look who’s getting the gang back together!
Cue Frank Sinatra’s Love and Marriage, for the cast of Married… With Children reunited this week to honor everyone’s favorite hardcore mom, Katey Sagal. TV’s most dysfunctional family was front and center when the Sons of Anarchy actress received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday. Sons actor Charlie Hunnum was also on hands to celebrate.
Al (Ed O’Neill) Peg (Sagal), Kelly (Christina Applegate) and Bud (David Faustino) say they’re still close after all these years, and after listening to their remarks, wethinks there may just be a reunion of sorts in the works. Pretty much because Applegate almost completely spilled every single one of the beans.
Sagal told E! News that a reunion has been on the brain since the iconic Fox show that ran for 11 seasons signed off in 1997.
“We’ve talked about it every year, but then there are so many pieces that have to be in alignment that for some reason it never happens,” she revealed. “But we love each other. Well, we’re all working now, so it’s hard to find the time!”
For her part, Applegate isn’t too thrilled about reliving the glory days. …Full Story
Liv Tyler’s large yet snug overalls have quite the tale to tell: There’s no more hiding it, try as she may. The Leftovers actress is expecting her second child, E! News reports. Tyler is mom to 9-year-old son Milo William Langdon with ex-husband Royston Langdon.
While Tyler’s rep is staying mum, E! confirmed the news with multiple sources the same day the 37-year-old Armageddon actress stepped out in New York sporting a sizable baby bump that even overalls and a jacket couldn’t conceal.
So who’s the lucky guy? Why David Beckham’s good friend Dave Gardner. On Tuesday, Tyler dined with co-star Justin Theroux and Beckham at Il Buco in NYC. Open leaving, she hid the baby proof with a long cream coat.
The couple were set up by mutual supermodel friend Kate Moss.
“They get on very well and are really enjoying spending time together,” an insider revealed. “He flies to New York mostly to see her and they feel very comfortable together. He is very charismatic and a real gentleman and she appreciates that about him.”
Gardner has two kids with his ex, English actress Davinia Taylor. They were married for seven years and split in 2010. Upgrade!Full Story
Sara Gilbert is with child!
The Talk co-host announced on her show Tuesday that she’s pregnant. And it sort of seemed staged until her fellow flappers of jaw absolutely lost it.
Here’s how it all went down: During a segment of the show, Gilbert said she couldn’t take part in a dare in which she would have had to lie down on a bed of nails and have a concrete block broken on her stomach.
“I really do believe in facing your fears and doing things that make you uncomfortable, but I actually can’t do the dare because I’m pregnant,” Gilbert revealed.
Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler, Julie Chen and Sheryl Underwood acted like the human race’s survival depended on this unborn child and flipped out, even picking Gilbert up by her torso, which also seems less than safe.
This will be the Roseanne alum’s first baby with musician wife Linda Perry. She has two kids with her ex, TV producer Allison Adler. Gilbert, 39, married Perry, 49, in March after three years of dating.Full Story
