Drew Barrymore proudly announced that she’s trying to find the man of her dreams via online dating on Monday’s episode of The Drew Barrymore Show. During the “Drew’s News” portion of the show, the 47-year-old actress even revealed the photo she uses for her online dating profile and asked guests Tony Dokoupil and Nate Burleson to give her an honest opinion on the snapshot. The photo is a makeup-free selfie taken from the bathroom. Drew’s naturally brunette hair was parted down the middle and she donned a pink and blue long-sleeve.
“I was excited to ask you guys because you’re both straight men and I don’t have a lot of those in my life. I am gay adjacent 24/7,” an excited Drew stated before showing them and her audience the photo. “Can I show you guys the picture that I have on my dating app?”
Upon viewing the photograph, the audience let out a sweet “awe” and Tony, a co-host on CBS Mornings, showered the Poison Ivy actress with praise. “Look, I’m an unfrozen caveman when it comes to dating, I don’t understand modern dating, I’ve been married for a million years, but if I saw that picture I would 100%, I’m swiping right,” he noted. Nate, one of Tony’s co-hosts, also gushed over the fresh-faced photo. “I’m thunder swiping right,” he said. Drew did not reveal which dating app she uses.
Drew has been very open about her love life on her talk show in the past and has even invited two of her exes to join her as guests. In September, she had ex Justin Long, 44, on the show to promote his new movie, Barbarian, and they inevitably talked about their relationship. “I love that we’ve maintained our love, because I know, from my end, it will never go away,” he sweetly told her.
A teary-eyed Drew replied, “I will always love you so much. You are so important to me.” The pair then got up from their seats to hug, and Drew continued her sentimental speech. “I feel like we’ve been through so much together, too. I feel like, when we used to talk and Facetime, I was always like, ‘You know I’ve really grown up, Justin.’ I always wanted to prove to you what a different person I was from when we dated,” she added.
Drew also got emotional when her first husband, Tom Green, appeared on the first season of The Drew Barrymore Show in 2020. In the clip seen here, Tom, 51, let Drew know his parents wish her the best and are excited for her to embark on her new talk show journey. She immediately teared up and recalled a night at his parents’ lake house and feeling so “content” there. She added, “I love your parents and I really love you and I celebrate you.” She then spoke about how much their lives have changed in the past 20 years and how much it meant to her for them to “come together and check in and talk about it”.
Drew dated Justin between 2007 and 2010, and she was married to Tom for a year between 2001 and 2002.
Meanwhile, in a different 2020 episode of her hit talk show, Drew opened up about the struggles of dating at her age. “I have been exactly in that mentality for the last five years, thinking, ‘I just don’t have the bandwidth, I don’t know if I’m willing to open my — I just, I can’t fit it in!’” she vented. Her guest of the day, Jane Fonda, told her not to worry and that she has plenty of time to find Mr. Right.
Reese Witherspoon and her daughter both have long blonde hair, heart-shaped faces, and adorable big smiles. In fact, they look so much alike that TODAY show hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager were stunned when the Oscar-winning actress insisted to them on the Oct. 4 episode that she and her 23-year-old look-a-like daughter, Ava Phillippe, don’t resemble each other at all. “She and I don’t see it that much,” Reese told the co-hosts. Jenna was so stunned by this revelation that she exclaimed, “Wait, y’all are twins!”
It’s no secret that fans are convinced the 46-year-old Legally Blonde alum and her eldest child with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe look like twins. In fact, reporters has a gallery of several photos of the pair looking super similar pinned above. There’s even more proof in Reese’s Instagram page. When Reese wished Ava a happy birthday in September, people flooded the comment section with birthday wishes and comments about their similar appearances. “I will never not do double takes at this duo,” influencer and podcaster Sarah Nicole Landry wrote. “Mother daughter twins,” Queer Eye‘s Jonathan Van Ness added. Even Cindy Crawford chimed in and commented, “Twinning!”
The comments were similar under a photo of Ava that Reese shared for National Daughters Day later that month. “And you’re on the left of this pic? No…right? Left?…ri…left….no right,” one person comically wrote to express their confusion over who is who in the sweet snapshot. “Simply copy and paste,” another added in agreement. A third completely bewildered follower wrote, “OMGGGGG it’s like looking at yourself. Reese.”
Regardless of whether or not Reese thinks she and her daughter are twins, there’s no doubt that she has loads of love for her. “Always feeling very lucky to have my wonderful, creative , talented daughter in my life !” she exclaimed in the National Daughters Day post on Sept. 26. “What a gift to share this life journey with you ..and the best makeup tips… it’s really great to share beauty tips, dog memes and the same shoe size. Makes life so fun!”
As noted above, Ava is the oldest child shared between Reese and Ryan. They also have an 18-year-old son, Deacon Phillippe. Reese also shares a 10-year-old son, Tennessee Toth, with her husband Jim Toth.
During her chat on TODAY, Reese opened up what it’s like to parent children of varying ages. “You establish a different relationship,” she explained “First of all, you’re managing them a lot when they’re little and it’s very physical. And then it’s more emotional support. And suggestions, not telling them what to do when they get a little bit older. But you have to really nurture your adult relationship with your children too. And give them respect and space to become who they are, not who you want them to be.”
Reese isn’t just raising kids, either. Her production company, Hello Sunshine, is six years old, and the Sweet Home Alabama star discussed the motive behind her company’s mission to highlight women’s stories through the eyes of women creatives. “You just see a wider range of the female experience when women are the authors,” she noted.
Angelina Jolie, 47, and her daughter, Zahara Jolie-Pitt, 17, looked super chic during an outing in New York City. During the rainy stroll, the Maleficent star rocked a black coat paired with black loose trousers and open-toe sandals. And despite the cloudy skies, Angelina still opted to wear a pair of jet-black aviator sunglasses while out with her teen. The mom-of-six made sure to not forget her jewelry as well and stunned in a pair of gold earrings. Her brunette tresses were worn straight down and flowed in the wind.
Zahara, who started college in Georgia just two months ago, kept her look a bit more casual. The 17-year-old wore light-blue jeans and a grey t-shirt paired with a plaid jacket. She also was more prepared for the weather than her mom and opted for white sneakers. The college freshman held a cozy grey blanket and carried a black leather backpack while on the go with Angelina.
The mother and daughter outing comes just one day after the Oscar-winner filed court documents in which she alleged that her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, 58, was violent towards her and their kids. In the documents obtained by HollywoodLife, it states that Angelina decided to end their marriage after the Bullet Train actor was allegedly “physically and emotionally abusive” to her and the kids. She also claimed that he “choked one of the children and struck another in the face.” Brad initially filed a suit against his ex over their French winery, Chateau Miraval, on Sept. 21, and the documents that were filed on Oct. 4 are a part of the ongoing legal battle.
Angelina also claimed that negotiations over Chateau Miraval had “had broken down” after Brad allegedly made her sign a non-disclosure agreement prohibiting her from discussing the violent actions she claimed happened on the plane in 2016. Although the actress had accused Brad of having “dumped alcohol on her and the kids”, he was eventually cleared of any child abuse allegations, according to reporters.
Brad has not publicly commented on the alleged altercation between him and Angelina, and has since gotten sober since their split. And according to an interview he did with GQ, he even spent over a year in Alcoholics Anonymous. “I had a really cool men’s group here that was really private and selective, so it was safe,” Brad said in June. “Because I’d seen things of other people who had been recorded while they were spilling their guts, and that’s just atrocious to me.” The Mr. and Mrs. Smith costars were married from 2014 until their official divorce in 2019. They share six kids together: Maddox, 21, Zahara, 17, Pax, 18, Shiloh, 16, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 14.
It’s been nearly a month since Adam Levine, 43, was first accused of sending racy DM’s to Instagram model Sumner Stroh — along with four other women — who shared their text conversations publicly on social media. And just as the scandal was about to die down, SNL brought it right back to center stage on their Oct. 1 show, where they included a hilarious DM Game Show sketch that featured Adam as a contestant who was trying to win a prize by NOT sending explicit DM’s to anyone. Although the audiences got a laugh at the whole bit, reporters has learned that the Maroon 5 frontman — whose supermodel wife, Behati Prinsloo, 34, is pregnant with their third child, definitely did not!
“Adam was in Las Vegas this past weekend performing with his band, so he did not see the ‘SNL’ skit live, but he did watch a minute of it online before stopping,” a source told us. “He feels the same about this that he does about the other memes and jokes that have been going around about it. He does not think it is funny and he thinks that it is disrespectful to Behati. He is unimpressed and, of course, he is still embarrassed. He just wants this to all blow over and wants his fans to just focus on his music, not his personal life.”
As reporters reported, Adam released a statement following Sumner’s bombshell accusations accusing Adam of having a physical affair with her for a year. In the statement that he posted to his Instagram story, Adam apologized for the whole incident but said that he did not actually cheat. As four other women came forward and shared DM’s sent to them by Adam, the internet exploded with a flurry of memes that poked fun at Adam’s cheesy texting style. According to our source, “Adam is definitely feeling the aftershock of the whole situation and he is quite embarrassed by all of it.”
“Aside from the fact that this could have cost him the one thing in life that he loves more than anything, which is his marriage to Behati, Adam is super bothered by the memes that have come from this,” the source said.”His marriage to Behati is his only concern right now and he is doing everything possible to show her that she is the only one for him.” Coincidentally, after his DM’s leaked, Adam changed his Instagram main photo and changed the setting to prevent fans from commenting on posts.
On Sept. 24, a source told reporters that Adam had “upped” his husband and daddy duties to soothe over Behati’s worries, adding that he was “thankful” that she stayed with him. “The last thing that he ever wants is for her to be stressed out during her pregnancy and he feels so awful that this is happening,” the insider said at the time. “Adam knows how close he came to losing everything and he is so incredibly thankful that she has not run away from him over this. He loves Behati and his kids so much and he has been a nervous wreck these past couple of days because the thought of losing his family is unbearable to him. He just wants this to all be behind them.”
Rihanna, 34, was spotted grocery shopping in Los Angeles on Oct. 4, and finally had some words to say about her upcoming Super Bowl Halftime performance! When a TMZ reporter asked the “Work” singer how she felt about the upcoming milestone performance Riri did not hold back. “I’m nervous!”, she said before adding, “But I’m excited!” The interviewer then tried to pry who could be performing alongside the Grammy-winner and at first, Rihanna just shrugged and tossed up the peace sign. But when the reporter said, “Could it be A$AP [Rocky]? Come on Rihanna I gotta know!”, she finally gave them a little hint. “Maybe girl,” the songstress concluded coyly.
Riri’s comments about the performance come just over a week after the Fenty Beauty founder officially announced she is taking the stage at the 2023 Super Bowl. On Sept. 25, Rihanna took to Instagram and posted a photo of just her hand holding up an NFL football and captioned the post with just a single period. That same day, Super Bowl Halftime producers Roc Nation and the NFL confirmed the news via Twitter. “Let’s GO – @Rihanna @NFL #SBLVII @AppleMusic @NFLonFOx”, Roc Nation tweeted. The NFL also reshared the tweet.
Since then Rihanna’s fans have been highly anticipating the performance, which is set to come after the singer has not released any new music in six years. Her last album, Anti, was released in 2016 and followed up her 2012 album, Unapologetic. On July 29, a source close to the star EXCLUSIVELY told reporters that new music is on hold – for now – as the singer focuses on her new family. Rihanna and boyfriend A$AP Rocky welcomed their first child together on May 13, which was first reported by reporters.
“Rihanna has total control over when she releases her music, she’s not in a position that a lot of artists get in where the label is pressuring her [she runs her own imprint under Roc Nation] she calls the shots and she’s very clear that until she feels ready nothing is coming out,” the insider told us in July. But now that she is performing at the major event in Feb. 2023, new music could possibly drop in celebration of the performance, after all, she has been spotted with her boyfriend numerous times at recording studios across the US.
When she is not grocery shopping or prepping for the Super Bowl show, the entrepreneur is busy running her billion dollar empire. She founded her beauty company, Fenty Beauty, in Sept. 2017, and has since become a billionaire as a result. Since then she has also launched Fenty Skin, a line dedicated to skincare. Both of her lines carry everything from foundation, lipstick, face masks, to body cream.
Jana Kramer is reflecting on her past as she moves towards the future.
The 38-year-old shared a message about the alleged abuse she once endured from a romantic partner—noting that for a long time, she believed she "deserved it."
"I was so full of shame," Jana wrote on Instagram Oct. 1. "I was made to feel like I had no one, and no one would believe me and that the reason I would be choked or hit was because I was bad."
The Michigan native paired her message with a throwback photo of her and her mom, Nora Kramer—and detailed what comes to mind when she sees that shot.
"I don't remember the excuses that I told people when I flew home to escape my abuser about the cuts and scrapes on my shoulder and arms, or why my ribs were hurting," Jana wrote. "But when I look at this photo that's all I see. I see a broken girl who was weeks prior pinned to the ground while the man that 'loved' me was strangling me saying that he was going kill me."
The singer’s post also included clips from her 2017 speech at Safe Horizon's 22nd Annual Champion Awards. At the time, Jana shared that her alleged abuser was an ex-husband of hers. (She has previously accused her first husband, Michael Gambino, of physical abuse. In 2005, he was convicted of attempted murder and sentenced to six years in prison. He was released in 2010 and died by suicide two years later.)
“It started with little comments here and there,” she said in her speech, without naming her abuser. “Then it started with more verbal abuse. And then it started with a push or a shove. And then it became a choke."
Ultimately, she felt as though she lost jobs because her performance in auditions was being affected by her situation.
"I was a girl full of light and full of energy and charm," she said in 2017. "And this man just broke me down to absolute nothing."
She added, "Once my abuser was in jail, I was finally able to be set free."
At the time, Jana shared her reasoning for discussing this deeply personal matter and the impact she hopes it will have.
"My manager is here tonight," Jana said. "I remember saying, 'I have a really important story that I want to tell' because I never understood why it happened to me but now knowing the platform that I have, I want to be able to be a voice."
Though she didn’t name anyone in her new Instagram post, Jana spoke out in 2016 about alleged physical abuse from ex-husband Michael Gambino, who she was married to in 2004.
“Ten years ago, I was in an abusive relationship. It was the worst time of my life,” she said on Dancing With the Stars. “He went to jail for attempted murder on me. It's been a very heavy secret to hold for so many years. The situation ten years ago broke me. It took having Jolie to piece together every single broken part of me."
Elizabeth Olsen "didn't understand" feelings of panic until she reached a certain age.
The Marvel actress got candid about how she experienced panic attacks in New York at age 21, a feeling she said she wasn't aware of as she was a very loud and confident kid growing up.
"I remember I would get [panick attacks] on the hour every hour," Olsen said in an interview with Variety published Oct. 3. "I used to live on 13th Street between 6th and 7th. I was crossing 6th Avenue at 14th Street, and I realized I couldn't cross the street — I stood up against the wall, and I just thought I was going to drop dead at any moment."
Olsen described the "spiraling" feeling that would happen in her body at signs of change in her environment.
"If I went from cold to hot, hot to cold, full to hungry, hungry to full — any kind of shift in my body, my whole body thought, 'Uh oh, something's wrong!'" Olsen told the publication. "It was so weird. A ENT doctor said that it could be vertigo related because it was all about truly spinning. So it was an interesting six months."
To cope with the feelings, the WandaVision star looked to a friend who was seeing a medical professional for panic attacks and knew a lot of brain games. Olsen learned one strategy called "repetition" as a grounding technique.
"It actually was very similar to an acting exercise that we did at Atlantic," Olsen said, referencing her time at the Atlantic Acting School in New York. "You just are constantly making observations about the person in front of you and you're just trying to connect."
She added, "When I would walk down the street, I would just start naming everything I saw out loud to get myself out of the spiraling thoughts in my brain."
The Doctor Strange actress said the technique was a "helpful tool," but still recalled her panic attacks as "very weird" because she was not anxious as a child.
Whoopi Goldberg, 66, did not hold back when talking about her former costar, Meghan McCain, 37, during a new interview with reporters. “It’s [The View] calmer because nobody wants to be that tired every day,” Whoopi told the outlet at the premiere of her new film, Till. Her sassy comment comes just over a year after Meghan announced her exit from the hit talk show after working alongside Whoopi for four years.
Meghan and Whoopi’s tumultuous relationship is no secret, as they have gotten into many disagreements while co-hosting The View together since Meghan joined in 2017. And in Meghan’s memoir Bad Republican, which was released in April, she revealed that while working on the show, her co-hosts became less friendly. “You can’t imagine how it messes with your self-esteem working in an environment where the worst thing you can be in the world is a Republican during the Trump years,” she wrote in an excerpt. “As the country got worse under Trump, the treatment from Whoopi, Joy [Behar] and some of the staff grew meaner and less forgiving,” the 37-year-old added.
The daughter of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), also went into details about her rough relationship with Joy in her book. When recalling her return to the show in Jan. 2021, following her maternity leave, Meghan wrote about the salty comment Joy made to her. “You missed me so much when I was on maternity leave. You missed fighting with me,” Meghan said to “ease the tension,” as she wrote in the excerpt. Joy clapped back: “I did not. I did not miss you. Zero.” After Joy’s comment, Meghan said that she felt she had been “slapped.”
Meghan first joined the cast of The View in Oct. 2017, and decided to quit the show after four years. On July 1, 2021, Meghan announced her departure from the show during a live episode for the show. “I am just going to rip the band aid off,” she said. “I am here to tell all of you, my wonderful co hosts and viewers at home, that this is going to be my last season here at The View.” In her book, she also called the environment at work “toxic” after she returned from her maternity leave. “As I was dealing with my own emotions, I couldn’t also navigate the idea that I was hated and felt hated at a toxic work environment,” Meghan penned. The former Fox News host revealed that during that time she was also dealing with postpartum anxiety.
Whoopi definitely agrees that both of them working together was not a positive experience. “We’ve always had disagreements and stuff, but this one was a little bit different,” the Sister Act star told Page Six. “I think [the show], it’s better. I feel it’s better, but I’m still tired!” She also shared that the drama took place in front of the cameras and not typically backstage. “People felt like they wanted to go home,” she said. “There was no point in fighting. You do what you do and you go home and do what you love to do. And hopefully, everybody is now happier.”
Cardi B and the City Girls‘ JT erupted in fury at each other on Twitter Monday night both publicly and in each other’s DMs. It all started when JT, 30, half of the Florida-based duo, congratulated rapper GloRilla for her No. 9 debut on the Billboard Hot 100 with her song “Tomorrow 2″, on which she collaborated with the 29-year-old “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker. “Congratulations Glo&stream FNF remix AND QUEENMIX,” she tweeted in response to someone who assumed she would be sour about someone else’s success.
When she was called out for not including Cardi in her congratulatory message, she tweeted that she simply could not fit Cardi’s name with the character restriction. “PLUS Cardi Been having top 10’s I been congratulating her for years this is GLO first one, I’ve been ignoring y’all but y’all are hella annoying, move round & get off my D—K thank YOU!” she wrote. Meanwhile, Cardi had been celebrating on her own, tweeting, “COOOUUUUSIIIINNNN WE MADE THE TOP TEN @GloTheofficial !!!!!” She also quoted a tweet from Chart Data that noted Cardi has earned a top 10 entry on the Hot 100 chart every year since 2017. “AND MY RECORDS LIVE IN THE TOP TEN,” she exclaimed.
However, things went South after Cardi seemingly randomly tweeted “Lapdog”. JT seemingly assumed the tweet was about her, and posted several tweets in a row, the first saying, “All you gotta do is be HAPPY, that’s enough to make a mf mad.” Next, she wrote, “I hope you don’t think you no BULLY!!!” followed by, “Wiener dog!”
The New York Native tweeted a seemingly calm, “Go fetch,” following JT’s line of tweets, which encouraged JT to respond to Cardi directly. “Cardi you go fetch a real talent! We DM’ing why you come back here to put on a show for these KIDS?” she wrote alongside Cardi’s “Go fetch” tweet, revealing the rappers were already dealing with their drama in their personal messages.
Cardi immediately fired back and insulted JT’s talent. “So wait, me and you talking in the DM woman to woman, but YOU take it to your timeline and throw shots calling me a bully and a wiener… Why you playing dumb? And YOU talking about a talent?! haaaaa! You forgot P tried to put me on wit your writer?” she slammed. In a subsequent tweet, she added, “Matter fact, I’m not even doing this on the timeline! It’s becoming real repetitive for doggy treats. We already addressing it in the DM’s. GOODBYE YALL”.
JT shot back by claiming Cardi is the one that needs help writing her music, including for their 2019 collaboration, “Twerk”. She declared, “No you wanted our written!!! For our hooks for our sound cause you clearly have none! Ask ANY writer! I write my OWN s—t!!! You know this.” Cardi, of course, retorted the statement with her own version how how things happened and declared that she needed to help City Girls because their tracks made no money. She also shared several screenshots of City Girls’ music video views on their own versus the views on their “Twerk” collaboration, which had tens of millions of more.
The duo traded more insults, with Cardi calling JT an “opportunist” and JT saying she’s not interested in comparing YouTube views because she’s more than that. Her eye roll with that tweet could nearly be felt through the screen. Cardi also played with JT’s ego by saying she hasn’t had a hit since 2019’s “Act Up”. JT also wondered when Cardi last had a hit, which is about when things calmed down between the two and they finished beefing in their direct messages.
JT ended her night by expressing how proud she is of herself for coming so far in her career through a string of several tweets. “I wish I would ever let a chart make me feel less of a star! I literally came from NOTHING did this s—t with a rap I WROTE on the road hitting licks! I did my time like a real b—ch & a b—ch ain’t scratch me in there & always for extra chicken on Thursday’s I ain’t never shamed,” she tweeted. In a third tweet, she concluded, “So don’t talk to me about no charts! NONE OF YALL! I done been in rooms with the top writters & told them they sh— wack the same writters that quick to drag female rappers oh I wrote this & that! This s—t actually embarrassing & Sad”.
Meanwhile, Cardi ended her dramatic night with a simple, “Keeping up with cardi …..yea I know”. Her tweet may be in reference to the fact that just a week ago, she feuded with yet another rapper. Only time will tell if next week will bring Cardi into the boxing ring of Twitter for a third time in a row.
Huma Abedin, 46, talked about her dating history amid speculation that she’s having a romance with Bradley Cooper, 47, in a new interview. The political staffer, who was vice chair of Hillary Clinton‘s 2016 presidential campaign, admitted she wasn’t “open” to having a relationship for “many years” and didn’t see herself as someone men would leave with at parties. Her work came first and she was “okay” with that.
“I put dating in the category of one of the things I did not allow myself to be open to for many years, particularly when I was living in New York in the early 2000s, when Hillary was in the Senate and it was a very glamorous time in New York,” she told WSJ. Magazine in an interview published on Monday, October 3.
“I was invited to so many dinner parties and there’d be all these women I found to be much smarter, much more beautiful, much more everything,” she continued. “Here I was, this serious little political aide in a suit. I never expected to be the woman that any of these men left with and I was OK with that because to allow for that kind of relationship would mean that I would have less time to work. Less time to focus.”
The beauty, who is originally from Michigan, went on to say her perspective on dating has changed greatly since then and she’s very open to it now. “Yes, I’m open to all kinds of saying yes!” she exclaimed.
Huma’s latest comments come just three months after it was reported she’s dating Bradley. The pair started a romance after Anna Wintour set them up, a source told Us Weekly at the time. They first reportedly met ahead of the 2022 Met Gala and both attended the event, but didn’t walk the carpet together. It’s not clear if the lovebirds are still romantically involved, but there have been recent reports that Bradley is reigniting a spark with ex Irina Shayk, with whom he shares daughter Lea, 5. The former couple co-parent and often spend time together with their daughter.
“It’s not Bennifer 2.0 where the other person is always in the back of their head, it’s more like, ‘why not?’” a source told reporters in Sept. “They have to deal with each other anyway since they are parents together. They are both thinking, maybe it’s time to finally really settle in.”
