  1. My Outfit Monday: Shopping like the enemy


    Today is my last My Outfit Monday before the beginning of college football season (praise emoji), and therefore I must take this final opportunity to step out wearing the on-trend garnet, gold and black palette that for obvious reasons I will be forced to retire until January.


  2. Khloe Kardashian, Lamar Odom divorce almost finalized


    Two years after separating, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have finally given up on whatever it was they were doing this whole time. Reconsidering, procrastinating, squeezing every last ounce of publicity out of this thing, the usj. (That’s usual for short, which is pointless because now we’re having to write this explainer.)

    Kardashian, 31, filed for divorce in 2013 but took no action for a year, prompting a judge to threaten to dismiss the case. Now though, the reality star and 35-year-old NBA player have signed the required legal docs, according to TMZ, and a judge is expected to make a final ruling any day....

  3. Melanie Griffith, Antonio Banderas sign divorce papers


    Must have been a busy day down at the dumpin’ office because Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas have signed the papers to make their divorce official. All the couple of 18 years awaits is a judge’s signature to end the year-long process, according to Entertainment Tonight....

  4. Cheating? Babies? What sparked the Blake Shelton-Miranda Lambert split?


    The world wants answers. How could such a shiny couple fall apart so fast?

    Rumors that Blake Shelton was cheating on Miranda Lambert started pretty soon after the country superstars got married in 2011, so who knows on that front. But now, word is Shelton filed for divorce when he discovered it was Lambert who was unfaithful to him — not once, but twice....

  5. Fantasia ties the knot


    Spotted: a little good news in the miserable sea of celebrity relationships. Fantasia Barrino is married and super pumped about being a newlywed.

    The American Idol Season 3 winner and fiance Kendall Taylor got hitched on Sunday, and Fantasia sure has the Instagrams to prove it. The couple tied the knot on a luxury yacht, and their color scheme was black, white and red all over, something we absolutely needed to know and see up-close a thousand times. Looking gorgeous as usual, the 31-year-old singer carried a bedazzled red rose bouquet and rocked a long-sleeve lace gown to match her husband’s white suit....

  6. Bruce Springsteen plays surprise show in tiny Jersey bar


    Imagine this: You’re strolling around Asbury Park, N.J., just minding your own business when suddenly you hear the live sounds of Bruce Springsteen thumping inside a local dive.

    The Boss performed 15 songs during a surprise performance at the Wonder Bar on the Jersey shore Saturday night, joining Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers, his friend’s band that he’s appeared with many, many times over the years....

  7. Jeremih’s birthday surprise: a DUI


    We bet Jeremih will remember this more than even the best Birthday Sex. The R&B singer rang in his big 2-8 in the clink on Friday morning after being busted for drunken driving.

    Jeremih was pulled over in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley around 2:15 a.m. and was booked an hour later for misdemeanor DUI, according to TMZ....

  8. 'Aladdin' is getting a Genie-centric prequel


    We are in a glass case — or a magic lamp — of emotion, for there is going to be an Aladdin prequel, centered around Genie, who obviously can not be voiced by the late, irreplaceable Robin Williams.

    It seems so glorious, but also too soon.

    The placating news: Genies will be live-action, thus sparing us the unbearable thought of that quirky cartoon face living on without the comedic genius that made him so lovable. In the film, we’ll learn all about where genies come from and how Genie got trapped in that lamp in the first place....

    Music & Concerts

    Fill your Dixie Cup with whiskey, grab a box of tissues and put Patsy Cline's Crazy on repeat because it's over for country superstars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. The couple have split after four years of marriage.

    "This is not the future we envisioned," they said in a joint statement. "And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter." ...

  11. Louis Tomlinson of One Direction is accidentally going to be a dad


    Well. We did not see this coming.

    One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson is going to be a dad.
    We repeat: Louis Tomlinson is going to be responsible for a real-life human baby’s welfare.

    The British boy band member accidentally impregnated Los Angeles stylist Briana Jungwirth, whom he considers a “friend.”

    “Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother,” a mutual friend of the pair tells People. “It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer.”...

  12. Jimmy Fallon back at 'Tonight Show' after freak finger injury


    Now would be the time to look away if you, like we, hate reading about tendons, veins and gruesome kitchen accidents. You’ve been warned.

    After two weeks away and much speculation, a bandaged Jimmy Fallon returned to the Tonight Show on Monday after partially recovering from a mysterious hand injury. Well, said injury is a mystery no more because Fallon gave his viewers the detes on his almost-amputated ring finger, which we will now present to you because we love you so much....

  13. Carrie Underwood’s baby rescued from locked car


    We imagine Carrie Underwood would have shattered every window, but it only took one good smash to rescue her baby boy from inside a locked car on Saturday.

    Okay, so technically the Blown Away singer didn’t save the day herself. It was her brother-in-law who freed 4-month-old Isaiah from inside Underwood’s car after one of the family’s dogs locked the doors....

  14. John Stamos enters rehab weeks after DUI arrest


    How to keep your image squeaky clean: Step 1: Don’t get a DUI. Step 2: When you do get a DUI, immediately enter rehab.

    John Stamos knows what’s up. The handsome, wholesome Full House alum just checked himself into a residential rehabilitation clinic for substance abuse treatment, People reports. This on the heels of his June 12 DUI arrest, which landed him in the hospital to investigate a possible medical condition....

  15. Jennie Garth marries David Abrams


    Jennie Garth is starting to become a pro at marriage. Or at least at getting married. The 90210 alum wed David Abrams, her boyfriend of eight months, on Saturday night in Los Angeles.

    “It was the perfect night,” the couple told People. “We are so happy to have our family and friends surrounding us on this special occasion!”...
