Kim Kardashian’s Instagram Stories gave fans a look into the Kardashian-Wests’ Fourth of July celebration earlier this week, and it was clear that they were very much not in California for the holiday. It looked like the family spent their Independence Day soaking up the sun by a lush, gorgeous lake, enjoying some cocktails (huckleberry vodka lemonade, anyone?) and having some fun wakesurfing and water sliding.
But some sleuthing courtesy of television station KTVB in Boise, ID took a closer look and actually suggested that the Kardashian-West family chose Lake Coeur d’Alene in Northern Idaho as their holiday destination. An investigation from TMZ further revealed that the family rented out a $1.85 million cabin by the lake that has recently been frequented by other high-profile celebs like Adam Levine and Harry Styles.
The family vacation might be all wrapped up by now (Kardashian’s Insta shows her back in the gym, presumably in SoCal), but their trip makes it look more and more like the next big celebrity trend is…rural America?
Maybe it’s a side effect of living in the era of Donald Trump, or maybe it’s places that are the total opposite of Hollywood that are drawing celebrity attention — like the rural and remote Coeur d’Alene, which saw over 66% of its population vote for Trump in 2016. After sparking controversy for expressing explicitly pro-Trump views interspersed between watered-down philosophical platitudes on Twitter, West himself made a high-profile retreat to Wyoming and Montana to produce his latest works, including Ye and the five weekly albums he’s released since.
Then they answered a question about which one takes the longest to get ready (Kylie) and a question about Kylie Cosmetics.
But then someone asked Jordyn about her weight loss, and that’s where things got interesting.
Jordyn said that at first, she wasn’t intentionally trying to lose weight, but when she did start trying, being consistent was key, as was figuring out a way to enjoy working out.
Kylie told her that she motivates her, then revealed that she’d “planned my first workout on Monday” — it sounds like she hasn’t worked out at all since giving birth.
“I’m not even doing it to get in shape,” she explained, “even though after Stormi I feel like people think that I like bounced back super fast, which I guess I did.”
She said that people “get the wrong idea on Instagram sometimes,” because everything is not totally back to normal with her body.
“Especially at such a young age, to see your body go through such a change,” she said, “and it is physically, emotionally and mentally a challenge.”
But she added that pregnancy is “also a beautiful thing, and it was such a great pregnancy and birth and I’m so happy and I would have done the same thing over again.”
She’s not the greatest at maintaining one train of thought, huh?
But she tries, bless her heart.
Getting to her original point, she revealed that “my boobs are like three times the size, which bothers me. I have stretch marks on my boobs, my stomach isn’t the same, my waist isn’t the same, my butt’s bigger, my thighs are bigger.”
“It’s just a change, and honestly I’m finding like I have to change my style a little because nothing in my closet fits my from before.”
“I really want to gain my core back,” she added. “I feel like I have fake abs now, like it’s just genetics, but I want real abs.”
“I know I can have a super fit body, but just for my health, I want to do this.”
It’s movie night. Sometimes, you want to bawl about thwarted love over a bowl of popcorn. Other times, you want to laugh so hard you spill the popcorn. And then there are nights when you want an adrenaline rush so severe, you lose your appetite for popcorn.
In those instances, you must call upon the psychological thriller genre to sate your craving for mind-blowing twists, unreliable narrators, and intelligent scares. Unlike normal thrillers, films in the “psychological thriller” category don’t rely on cheap tricks and jump shots to get under the viewer’s skin. Instead, they use protagonists’ unstable mental states as a landscape for twists and turns. Characters’ crumbling senses of reality make for topsy-turvy, intriguing worlds.
Have we convinced you to abandon your Friday night plans and succumb to the unstable mental states of movie characters? Prepare to get “Inceptioned” with each of these Netflix movies.
Three popular Canadian YouTubers – Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh and Megan Scraper – all died on Tuesday in a tragic accident that took place at Shannon Falls in British Columbia.
In a statement released on Wednesday, the Squamish RCMP wrote the following about this awful incident:
“On July 3rd, 2018, at 11:55 am Squamish RCMP received a call from BC Ambulance regarding three people who were swimming in one of the pools at the top of Shannon Falls.”
Continued the police in this statement:
“The individuals were with a group of friends when they slipped and fell into a pool 30 metres below."
All three corpses have since been recovered and the case is being referred to the British Columbia Coroners Service.
(Shannon Falls, it should be noted, is the third highest waterfall in British Columbia. it reaches a a height of 1,009 feet.)
According to The Vancouver Sun, the fatal accident occurred after Scraper slipped and fell off the waterfall.
Gamble (pictured below) and Lyakh reportedly then got swept away by the water while attempting to save her.
The British Columbia Coroners Service has told People Magazine that it cannot confirm or release the identities of the victims, but that they are “in their late 20s – one female and two males.”
In a YouTube video shared on July 6, members of the group High on Life – which posts travel videos online – published a tearful memorial for the three deceased vloggers.
This is what was said on it:
On July 3rd, 2018, we lost three very dear friends of ours: Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh and Megan Scraper.
There are truly no words that can be said to ease the pain and the devastation we are all going through right now.
They were three of the warmest, kindest, most driven and outgoing people that you could ever meet and the world has lost a good deal of light with their passing.
From what we can gather via Facebook, High on Life was started in 2012 after Gamble, Lyakh and another friend named Parker Heuser gave up the lease on their apartment and chose to start traveling the world together.
As you can see from the photo above, and has been confirmed by various outlets, Scraper was dating Lyakh at the time of their deaths.
Shortly before his passing, Gamble wrote a long message on Instagram about finding his “purpose” in life.
“When life is on purpose and I feel clear with my direction, all my other decisions seem to get easier,” he wrote, adding that “it took me 29 years to understand this" and continuing as follows:
"So if you have a strong masculine core, and find yourself drained of energy, attention, and power, check in with this notion of your ‘purpose’ and see what comes up.
"Make purpose the focus above everything else in your life and watch how the rest will fall into place."
Elsewhere, a GoFundMe page/account has been created by High on Life to help pay for a memorial “to commemorate the beautiful lives and legacies that these 3 friends left behind.”
Any additional funds raised will go towards travel arrangements and expenses for the families of the deceased.
Our thoughts go out to all affected by these deaths.
May Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh and Megan Scraper rest in peace.
After a year of dating, singer Halsey and rapper G-Eazy have officially called it quits.
Halsey stunned fans by making the announcement on Instagram earlier this week.
"I normally keep this kind of thing private but provided our public nature I feel the need to inform my fans," the 23-year-old wrote.
“G-Eazy and I are taking some time apart. I’m eager to continue the upcoming passage of time dedicating myself to my art and career, and the duration of my tour.”
“I wish him the best. Thanks for respecting our privacy at this time.”
It was a typical boilerplate amicable breakup announcement — but it wasn't along before Halsey complicated the situation with a cryptic tweet:
As fans were quick to point out, "pumpkin eater" is generally preceded by the words "Peter, Peter" or "cheater, cheater," and unless Halsey was watching Family Guy or dreaming of Dinklage at the time of the tweet, the former doesn't really make sense.
The singer didn't speak up to set the record straight when fans started speculating that this was her way of suggesting G-Eazy had been unfaithful.
And this seems to be a situation in which her silence speaks volumes.
Whatever the case, Halsey wasted no time before posting a "revenge body" bikini pic on the 'Gram.
Of course, her followers might be reading into this one too deeply.
It's hotter than Satan's taint in most of the US right now, and really, anyone who's outdoors wearing anything more than swimwear this week is clinically insane.
So it's possible Halsey simply decided to post a photo in which she's wearing a bikini, and there's no vengeful motive behind it.
It's also possible that we've devoted entirely too much thought to a Halsey bikini photo.
Anyway, despite the fact that the couple enjoyed collaborative success with the hit single "Him & I," members of Halsey's inner circle are reportedly thrilled about the split.
It seems some were opposed to the relationship from the start, and their feelings only intensified after G-Eazy was arrested for assault and possession following an altercation in a bar back in May.
Besides, couple duets are great, but we all know the real money is in breakup songs.
Why the rapper thought these “memes,” which he has now deleted, would even be remotely funny is unclear. Now, there is a petition for the rapper to be removed from one of Starz's most watched shows, Power, which he stars in and executive produces.
The petition, which has garnered more than 22,000 signatures and counting, explicitly calls for 50 Cent’s removal by the Starz network because his posts insinuated that Crews was “less of a man” for being a victim. “50 Cent has sent a message loud and clear that he is not a fan of the #MeToo movement…Starz should send a message to the rapper and to all other potential producers and filmmakers that they will not tolerate this type of ignorance."
50 Cent isn’t swayed by the backlash though. In fact, he took to Twitter to make yet another ignorant statement saying that “people are so sensitive.” It just keeps getting worse.
Now, I completely agree with petition that 50 Cents needs to go. Time is up on any type of sexual assault and harassment or anyone who thinks any type of sexual violence is a joke. But his removal should not come at the expense of the entire show.
"Power is not a Black show. It's not a white show. It's a New York show," she said. "And it is full of the ethnicity, personality, and downright swagger in this room tonight. The faces in this crowd and the faces represented on this screen tonight are a statement about the need for programs like ours. It is more important now to stand up and be counted." I couldn’t agree with her more.
Starz has yet to address the petition but hopefully they’ll take a cue from ABC and give Power the Roseanne treatment. Cancel the problem child — and I do mean child — and his bullshit, not the whole shebang.

When it comes to the relationship between Jen Harley and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, we just… give up.
You can go ahead and try to figure these two out; we're just gonna sit back and eat some hot dogs on this special birthday.
Indeed, the Jersey Shore cast member and his on-again/off-again/on-again/off-again girlfriend apparently put their differences aside on Wednesday in order to celebrate America.
Ortiz-Magro shared a photo on Instagram Stories this morning of himself and Harley snuggled close, flag-themed hearts floating around the duo as she made a kissy face at the camera.
“Happy independence day,” over the image.
How cute, right?
How sweet, no?
How romantic, yes?
Sure, we guess.
But that would only be true if you ignored the fact that Harley was arrested mere days ago for DRAGGING RONNIE BY A CAR in Las Vegas.
The couple had reportedly got into an argument on the way home from a barbecue and, as Ronnie tried to unbuckle his seatbelt and exit the vehicle, Harley allegedly sped away, dragging her boyfriend down the street.
She was taken into custody by local authorities, but will not be charged with any crime.
It's important to note two things while we relay that news:
1. Harley and Ronnie are the new parents to a baby girl named Ariana; she was born on April 3. (And she was in the car at the time of the above incident.)
2. This above incident was certainly NOT the first time Ronnie and Jen got into it in a very serious manner.
In late April, Jen and Ronnie went back and forth in very ugly fashion on social media.
She accused him of cheating. He accused her of holding on to old sex tapes of herself and an ex.
A film about the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case is currently in production, and is reportedly facing backlash for a pro-life stance on the issue of abortion. Nick Loeb, one of the film's co-directors, told The Hollywood Reporter that it has been rejected from multiple locations where it was set to film after location managers learned of the subject.
Loeb is co-directing the film alongside his co-producer Cathy Allyn. On board to star in the feature is Clueless actress turned would-be conservative politician Stacey Dash, who will portray Dr. Mildred Jefferson, the first Black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School. Deliverance actor (and Angelina Jolie's father) Jon Voight will play a Supreme Court Justice. Also included in the cast are Joey Lawrence, Steve Guttenberg, and Greer Grammer.
Loeb claimed to THR that some of the members of the cast and crew, who were not initially aware of the film's specific subject matter, left the production over the perceived pro-life stance.
Loeb told Refinery29 that while the entire cast read the script and was therefore informed of the subject of the film, some people who were not directly hired by Loeb (for example, the electrician who, Loeb claimed in his interview with The Hollywood Reporter " threw her headset on the ground and walked off [set]") may not have been as informed of the film's subject.
"In 99% of all films, if I was a key electrician, I wouldn't [be given] a script or told the story of the movie… that really isn't sent out. I'm guessing that [the key people] just didn't think [to explain the story]," Loeb told Refinery29. "But all the time, we've been up front with everybody. Sometimes, they get here, and their friends or family members find out, and they decide to quit. Although we've had those challenges, on the flip side… Louisiana is a very pro-life state… and we've gotten a lot of offers for free stuff, because the people do support our cause."
Due to the controversial topic and alleged pro-life stance, the film, which is shooting outside of New Orleans, cloaked production under a fake name. Nevertheless, it is not exactly "secret," as it was referred to by THR. In fact, a crowdfunding effort was put in place earlier this year. Per the IndieGogo page, which describes the movie as a "true story of the most corrupt court case in history that led to the murder of 60 Million Babies," the fundraiser was backed by 1636 people and raised $134,572 of a $2 million dollar flexible goal.
Loeb told Refinery29 that the film will show the case from both the pro-choice and pro-life perspective.
"[The film is about] how the media sort of manipulated Norma McCorvey and the courts into the 1973 decision to legalize abortion. It is told from both sides… It's a 50/50 split between the pro-choice and pro-life characters. It's really a journey going from 1969 all the way up to 1973, about how the pro-choicers found Norma, got her lawyers; they prepped her, got her to the courts… The people involved… how they made up these statistics, how they lied to the media to push their agenda… On the pro-life side, you've got… their journeys paralleling each other, all the way through the Supreme Court."
Loeb also claimed that not everyone in the cast or crew is pro-life, though did he state that Refinery29 would have to follow up with each of them individually to hear their specific viewpoints.
"Half the cast is pro-choice," Loeb told Refinery29. "Other than Stacey Dash, I don't really know where Jon Voight stands on the issue… Jon loved the script because it was so factually correct… A lot of the cast, including the leads, are pro-choice… I can't speak for them personally, but overhearing conversations that they've had, a lot of them are pro-choice."
According to Loeb, the project is aiming for a theatrical release. Per THR, the film is negotiating a distribution deal now, aiming for a January 2019 release date.
If Loeb's name sounds familiar, it is because he was once the fiancé of Modern Family star Sofia Vergara, and is currently fighting the TV actress for use of the pair's frozen embryos.
Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?
… it’s taken a major step in a very serious direction.
“Scott and Sofia are moving in together,” a source tells this tabloid very simply in its latest issue, adding of the arrangement:.
“She’ll move into his house.”
The decision to shack up follows a lot of chatter about Richie ending this romance after Disick allegedly cheated on Sofia in Miami this spring.
Scott was also seen getting very close and awfully cozy with a mystery woman at Kanye West’s Ye album listening party in Wyoming on May 31.
Classic Scott Disick, right?
That’s what Kourtney Kardashian would say.
Still, despite the widely held belief that Disick was sticking his penis into at least one other woman just a little while back, many people close to the situation had a feeling Richie wouldn’t be able to walk away.
We guess she knew what she was getting into when she started dating Disick, right?
“It’s likely not totally over,” an insider told People Magazine of Richie and Disick in early June, right around the time of their alleged split, adding:
“They’ve broken up multiple times since they started dating and always ended up back together. No one would be surprised if they’re out again together in a few days or weeks.”
Well, sure, right?
Who can resist the… charm of Scott Disick? The rugged handsomeness of Scott Disick? The ability of Scott Disick to drink a lot of alcohol in one night?
We really have no idea at this point.
Following the news of Disick’s supposed indiscretions, a confidant revealed that Richie confided in her famous father, Lionel Richie.
And how did the veteran singer respond?
Us Weekly writes that he threatened “to cut her off and write her out of his will if she continues her relationship with Scott as he thinks he’s extremely toxic for her.”
It now sounds as if Richie is willing to call this bluff.
Disick, of course, shares three kids with Kardashian: Mason, 8, Penelope, 6, and Reign, 3.
How does Kourtney feel about her ex-boyfriend’s new living situation?
“She couldn’t be bothered by the drama,” says this first source. “She just cares about the kids and that they’re OK with the situation, which they are.”
It also helps that Kourtney is on vacation at the moment as well.
And by the looks of things, she has every reason not to care at all about what Scott is doing.
Selena Gomez knows a thing or two dozen about getting back together with Justin Bieber.
So, with the latter singer very clearly having reunited recently with ex-girlfriend Hailey Baldwin, what does his other ex-girlfriend have to say about this development?
LOL! Good luck with that, Hailey, basically sums it up.
Gomez, of course, jumped into bed once again with Bieber late last year, shortly after her split from The Weeknd and also shortly after she underwent a kidney transplant.
Sources claimed at the time that it took this sort of life-altering procedure for Bieber to realize how much he truly loved Selena and to realize that he couldn’t live without her.
The Internet thought that maybe this reconciliation would be the final one and the stars truly would end up together.
Instead, they broke up after just a few months.
Most insiders agree that it was actually Selena who ended the latest version of this romance, as she clashed with loved ones over Justin’s influence on her and, we guess, at last concluded that the artist just wasn’t worth her time.
She could do a lot better.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago and rumors that Bieber was dating Baldwin, with whom he had enjoyed a fling back in 2016.
The model and the singer were spotted making out in public this past weekend during a visit to New York City, prompting many to wonder how Selena must be feeling at the moment.
And Radar Online claims to have the answer:
She’s feeling just dandy, thanks for asking!
“Hailey must recognize now that she will always be Justin’s second choice,” Radar quotes a friend of Selena’s as saying, adding:
“Selena doesn’t care what Justin does with his love life anymore.
“In the end, Justin turned out to be exactly the same person he [always was], a selfish and immature kid who only cares about himself.”
Wow, well… okay then!
Bieber may not be touching her bush any longer, but Gomez apparently isn’t interested in beating around any bushes, either, when it comes to her take on her ex.
Don’t get this report wrong, though.
It’s not as if Gomez is sitting back and refreshing her social media feed every two seconds for an update on Justin and Hailey. She has moved on.
If taking away a bunch of our favorite shows and movies is Netflix's way of telling us to go outside and stop wasting our summer on the couch, then they've got another thing coming. Nothing gets between us and our binging, and the knowledge that some of our tried and true favorites will soon be on their way out is just extra incentive to hunker down and watch them before they're gone.
Luckily, there's still a couple weeks before these shows start trickling off the streaming service one by one, and so over at Refinery29, our job is to give you the best plan of attack. Then, you can dive into all the new shows and movies that are landing on the platform, because this is 2018, and if you're not always coming home to a few episodes of a TV show every night, then are you even living?
But one step at at a time. First, let's get ready to say goodbye. Ahead are all the movies and TV shows that are leaving Netflix in July.
Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?
The controversial artist, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy was leaving a motorcycle dealership when an unidentified assailant approached his car and shot him several times.
Onfroy was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at a nearby hospital.
His gunman remains at large.
News of Onfroy's death received a mixed reaction on social media due to the abusive behavior that characterized his life.
Many young artists have courted self-destruction, but few have behaved as violently toward others as XXXTentacion.
Despite his youth, the allegations against Onfroy are too numerous to list here.
The most appalling include his sustained, methodical abuse of his pregnant girlfriend and his near-fatal strangulation of a gay, whom Onfroy appears to have attacked for no other reason than his sexual orientation.
Onfroy often rapped about suicide in his songs, but his death almost certainly came as a surprise.
But that doesn't mean it was totally unexpected to those who knew him best.
"XXXTentacion immortalized Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. and wanted to die young just like them,” a source connected to the rapper tells Radar Online.
“He craved attention.”
The insider says that Onfroy's primary ambition in life was to be talked about and remembered.
He was reportedly willing to do anything to achieve this goal including, possibly, dying young.
“He wanted to have people talking about him, his career and his potential just like Pac and BIG. He was that dude who didn’t give a f-ck about anything,” the source claims.
“He has no regrets in life. He was him and loved himself with all his flaws.”
We never thought we'd need to say this, but here we go:
There's a big difference between getting married on board an airplane and having sexual intercourse on board an airplane.
The former arrangement can be pretty romantic, despite its unusual setting, as evidenced by the following video:
The latter, though? It's just weird and gross and dirty, despite being sort of admirable.
We say this because a man and a woman were recently videotaped while very clearly getting it on while flying about 35,000 feet over the ground.
This isn't the first time a couple has joined what society has deemed The Mile High Club, but it's gotta be one of the first times they have dared to do so without going into the bathroom first.
These two just starting humping on their seats!
“My mom and dad were just trying to have a peaceful trip to Mexico and then they sent me this……..” Twitter user @kileytully wrote alongside the borderline NSFW footage, which was filmed by her mother.
The video has been viewed over 4.2 million times since it went live — and it's easy to see why.
How often do you see a woman just straddle a man mid-flight and thrust all around?
Here's the thing, though: these two nearly got away with it!
At one point in the video, the mother of the aforementioned Twitter user pans around to the rest of the cabin, showing happily unaware fellow travelers.
Granted, we assume, if someone had gotten up to use the restroom, he or she would have seen what was going on.
But we almost can't blame the horny couple in question for trying to get away with their lewd act.
It's not like any nudity is showing!
NOTE: Silver Airways has confirmed the video was taken on one of its flights, according to the Daily Mail, and also told the outlet it is working to confirm its authenticity … but did not condone the type of behavior.
We guess we understand what it has to say that.
But check out the footage above for yourself.
We've seen more naked action on the Instagram account of Kim Kardashian.
Update: XXXTentacion's team has confirmed the death of the 20-year-old rapper in a new statement.
"On June 18, 2018, Jahseh Onfroy—known worldwide as XXXTentacion—tragically passed away from a gunshot wound in Deerfield, Florida. It is with great sadness that the news is confirmed in this official statement by his team— manager Solomon Sobande, EMPIRE, Bob Celestin, Esq. and AKW PR," his team wrote in a statement to Refinery29. "In deference to his family, friends, and loved ones and in light of further investigation, we ask that their privacy be respected at this time. XXXTentacion touched the lives of millions around the globe and will forever reside in the hearts of countless fans who listened to his music, attended his concerts, and felt the glow of his uncontainable, undeniable, and unique spirit. News about memorial services to be issued forthcoming."
North West had a birthday a few weeks ago. She is now 5 years old!!
But when some people saw that Kim had given her a straightened, Ariana Grande-style ponytail, they flipped out.
North West and Penelope Disick look so cute, right?
North is wearing a swimsuit, a robe, and a unicorn horn — amazing for a birthday party or any other occassion.
But it was North's hair that drew the eyes of fans.
Not only on Kim's Instagram stories, but when she was spotted out and about in public.
Some fans were very distressed to see that Kim had once again seemed to straighten her little girl's hair.
"I hope those are not hair extensions in a four year old!" one Twitter user wrote.
We don't think that informing that person that North turned 5 a few days ago would put them at ease.
(To be clear, we're also not sure what's wrong with a four-year-old doing their hair — hair extensions aren't, like, tattoos or plastic surgery or whatever)
"I reall hate how the Kardashians keep straightening that poor baby's hair tho," another Twitter user writes.
This one, it seems, objects to the fact that they're messing with her hair at all, regardless of her age.
"North West gonna have heat damage before she's 10 — before I even knew what straightener was smh."
SMH, of course, is an acronym for smacking my head, an expression of frustration.
There is a racial component to hair and hairstyles.
A lot of hairstyles that just happen to be banned by dress codes and company policies as "unprofessional" also just happen to be easier hairstyles for people with curly hair like North's.
For black people, in other words.
This is why many black people in the US and other countries take great pride in their hair — because it's part of who they are, even though white supremacist cultural forces have tried to force them to have straightened hair or no hair at all.
So … is Kim forcing North to have straight hair in order to fit in with European beauty standards?
First of all, North only rarely wears her hair straightened.
Kim has spoken at length about how much North loves her hair and about how Kim encourages her biracial children to love their hair and skin.
And we just can't imagine Kim forcing North to wear her hair one way or the other.
Especially, you know, for North's own birthday party. Some parents would, sure.
But say what you will about Kim Kardashian — she is a loving mother.
Or, as one Twitter user phrased it:
"Kim has taken such good care of North's curls over the years. The comments about North's hair being straightened [are] tired," the person writes.
That tweet continues: "First of all, mind your own children."
Now, if a parent is doing some sort of harm to their child, by all means, we all have a duty to speak up.
But straightening North's hair or giving her hair extensions or whatever for her birthday and a visit to a candy shop is honestly no big deal.
It is certainly not harmful.
Kim Kardashian is hailed as a "beauty guru" by many. We somehow can't imagine that she's going to sabotage her own daughter's hair.
The reality show, which documents the lives and careers of WWE performers Nikki and Brie Bella, has focused considerably on the six-year romance between Nikki Bella and Blockers star Cena. However, one big issue that the pair saw for their future was Bella's desire to have children — something Cena did not seem to want in the same capacity. In fact, Cena previously underwent a vasectomy, making him unable to father children unless he has the procedure reversed.
As revealed on Sunday's episode of Total Bellas, Cena and Bella had a heart-to-heart about the matter, in which the Trainwreck actor told his love that he was willing to give fatherhood a go."I physically can't have kids… so I'm also telling you that I’m willing to have surgery and then still go through with being a dad," Cena told his then-fiancée.
Bella cried, and asked Cena if he would change his mind, which he insisted he would not."Just tell me you love me and that you’ll marry me," Cena said in the episode.
On the show's timeline, the pair is getting ready to walk down the aisle after patching up this relationship issue. However, in real life, Nikki and Cena announced their breakup in May, just three weeks prior to their planned wedding.
To further complicate matters, People reported that just six weeks after the couple's planned wedding date, the two had officially gotten back together. Whether they have rescheduled their nuptials is still unknown. (In a recent interview with GQ, which dropped last week, reporter Chris Gayomali was asked not to ask about Bella as "the wounds [are] still fresh." It is unclear when that interview took place.)
Guess we'll have to wait and see what's next for these two: Weddings, babies, or whatever else.
Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?
On Saturday afternoon, Beyonce and Jay-Z stunned the music universe by releasing a joint album as a rather significant complement to their ongoing "On the Run II Tour."
Titled "Everything Is Love," the album was released exclusively Tidal and announced by Beyonce via Instagram.
The announcement footage features the two artists at the Louvre museum in Paris, including shots of them standing in front of the Mona Lisa painting while donning pink and mint suits … as well as glimpses of dancers performing in skin-colored tights and crop tops.
Two performers appear on the cover of the Everything Is Love album.
But this is not even all:
On top of the album drop, Bey and Jay also released a music video for the record's debut single, "Apes**t."
The video was filmed on location last month in this same iconic museum, a Tidal rep tells E! News…

This is her, folks. This is Mandy Moore on the red carpet of the 2018 MTV Movie And TV Awards.
That's likely the question on the mind of Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's castmates today, as the Jersey Shore crew was forced to stop filming ahead of schedule due to ongoing drama between Ronnie and his baby mama, Jen Harley.
Until yesterday, the cast was in Las Vegas filming a second season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation.
The title isn't terribly apt in Magro's case, as Vegas is his home turf these days.
So it was a bad choice of locale for reasons that go beyond the irony of filming a show with "Shore" in the title in the middle of a landlocked state.
You see, if you've been watching the current season of JSFV, you know that Ron and Jen's relationship isn't the greatest.
During his time in South Beach, Ronnie cheated on Jen with a French woman who was unimaginatively dubbed "French Fry."
But that was only the beginning of their problems.
In the weeks since, Harley and Ortiz-Magro broke up and got back together several times, so it should've come as no surprise to Shore producers when their relationship drama dominated the first few days of filming in Vegas.
Maybe that was the plan. Maybe the plan backfired.
Whatever the case, the plan was scrapped when — to use the parlance of Shore's current season — Ron spiraled and quickly spun out of control.
When you got fired from Teen Mom OG for generally being an awful person, we thought your days of entertaining/depressing us with your bonkers bad behavior had come to an end.
In retrospect, we should've known a day like today was coming.
In case you missed it, Farrah was arrested on charges of battery and trespassing last night after allegedly assaulting a male staff member at the famed Beverly Hills Hotel.
According to the police report, she was booked at 1:48 AM.
As of right now, she's still being held on $500 bail.
We still don't know what set Farrah off (although we do know that booze was involved), but TMZ has obtained video of Farrah's arrest, and as you may have guessed — it ain't pretty.
At one point, one of the arresting officers begins searching Farrah's purse, and the former reality star demonstrates that even in her state of inebriation, she's well aware of the reality of her situation:
"Do you want to do that on camera so that everyone at TMZ can see?" Farrah asks.
Further proving that her diva-like attitude remains intact, Farrah tells one of the officers, "I don't want to be arrested."
She then repeats the phrase "I am not going to be provoked to be arrested" several times.
Then things really take a turn for the worse, as Abraham screams, "I am not resisting you!" before breaking down in tears (a classic Farrah tactic) and accusing one of the officers of hurting her.
A spokesperson for Farrah issued a statement today in which she thanked fans for their "concern" and urged them to "remember there are two sides to every story."
Meanwhile, police have issued their own statement, in which they state the painfully obvious and confirm that Farrah has hammered at the time of her arrest.
“Officers noted that Abraham exhibited signs of intoxication during the investigation,” stated Lieutenant Elisabeth Albanese with the Beverly Hills Police Department this afternoon.
It may be hard to believe, given her many years of batsh-t behavior, but this is only Farrah's second arrest.
Sure, you may have been cautiously optimistic when you learned that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez had gotten back together for the 47 bajillionth time, but on some level you suspected that eventually, the Biebs would get busted engaging in some hardcore canoodling with someone who is very much not Selena.
If you go way back through Justin’s relationship Rolodex (that’s a thing your great-grandparents used to store their contacts in), you’ll find the name Hailey Baldwin.
Meghan Markle may officially be royalty, but that doesn’t mean she’s not still learning. While husband Prince Harry has grown up in this world of tradition and rules and corgis, Markle is getting a crash course. Luckily, she has the best teacher. In a new video taken of the couple at Trooping the Colour (the official celebration of the Queen’s birthday) this past Saturday, they share a subtle moment that perfectly encapsulates why everyone is head over heels for their love.
Specifically, the video shows Markle and Prince Harry anticipating the arrival of Queen Elizabeth. Markle knows she should curtsy, she’s just not sure when, and that’s when fans’ lip-reading skills came in handy.
While this moment was all about tradition, Markle balanced it out by adding her signature dash of modernity. If you take a look at her shoulders — well, that’s the whole thing. Her shoulders are on display, a somewhat unprecedented choice for a formal event. But Markle is an unprecedented Duchess, and with that comes iconic moments (and dresses) like this one. I’ll curtsy to that.
Fans and media outlets were quick to point out some unusual social media activity from Bourdain’s longtime girlfriend, Asia Argento, in the hours before the news of his passing became public knowledge.
An image in which the actress is seen wearing a shirt that reads “F-ck Off,” coupled with photos of Argento apparently vacationing with a male friend in France prompted a widespread theory that Bourdain was distraught over relationship problems.
In the final months of his life, Bourdain was an outspoken advocate of the #MeToo movement, and his activism brought him close to some of the most high-profile victims of sexual harassment in Hollywood, including the actress Rose McGowan.
Bourdain and McGowan quickly became close friends, and today, she published an open letter in which she addresses both his death and the rumors about his alleged relationship troubles.
“Sitting across from me is the remarkable human and brave survivor, Asia Argento, who has been through more than most could stand, and yet stand she does,” the letter reads.
“She stood up to her monster rapist and now she has to stand up to yet another monster, suicide. The suicide of her beloved lover and ally, Anthony Bourdain.”
McGowan goes on to claim that Bourdain and Argento were in an open relationship, and she implies he would not have been upset by the sight of Argento with another man:
“Anthony and Asia had a free relationship, they loved without borders of traditional relationships, and they established the parameters of their relationship early on,” McGowan states.
“Asia is a free bird, and so was Anthony. Was. Such a terrible word to write,” she adds.
“I’ve heard from many that the past two years they were together were some of his happiest and that should give us all solace.”
She later states:
“It is in no way fair or acceptable to blame her or anyone else, not even Anthony.”
McGowan says she’s angry about her friend’s death, but she also pleads for sympathy from those who feel that he took his own life out of selfishness or a lack of concern for his loved ones.
Shortly after learning of Bourdain’s death, Argento addressed the matter on Instagram, writing:
“His brilliant, fearless spirit touched and inspired so many, and his generosity knew no bounds. He was my love, my rock, my protector. I am beyond devastated. My thoughts are with his family. I would ask that you respect their privacy and mine.”
We’ll have further details on this developing story as more information becomes available.
Ariana Grande appears to have replied to the reports that she and Pete Davidson are engaged. The 24-year-old singer shared a tweet with fans that consists of a number of monkey-hiding-its-face emojis and the message: “i love u sm ok bye.”
And that kids, sounds like confirmation to me.
Original story follows.
Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande just went from being in the honeymoon stage to…planning their actual honeymoon. According to reports in both Us Weekly and People, the buzzy couple of these past few weeks is engaged, and it all went down at Robert Pattinson’s birthday party.
According sources, Saturday night is when the duo began telling people they’re engaged, and one told People that “It’s a recent engagement. They’re just two people who found love quickly and make each other happy all the time. They both started talking about it this past weekend. It’s nothing they’ve been hiding.”
In fact, all sources could talk about was how happy this couple is.
“They are a perfect fit. They are not rushing to get married,” another told Us Weekly. “Their friends are really excited and supportive.”
That’s another theme — they won’t be walking down the aisle any time soon.
“They are looking forward to a very long engagement together,” a source clarified to the outlet.
Davidson and Grande’s relationship was confirmed as “casual” on May 21, but picked up steam on social media when they started appearing in pictures together and publicly flirting in Instagram comments.
Vince Vaughn has not made us laugh via a film role for many years.
Similarly, the actor was involved in a rather unfunny situation late Saturday night/early Sunday morning in Manhattan Beach, California.
TMZ is the celebrity gossip website that broke this news and which has provided us with most of the following details.
According to local law enforcement officials, Vaughn and an unnamed passenger were stopped at a checkpoint around 12:30 a.m. local time and asked to step out of their vehicle.
Police tell the aforementioned outlet that both men were uncooperative, even refusing to actually leave the car after being asked to do so at first.
Once they finally abided by this request, Vaughn was arrested around 1 a.m. and booked and cited for misdemeanor DUI, as well as obstructing a police officer.
His passenger was booked for obstruction and public intoxication.
Vaughn remained in custody for at least three hours, a source confirms.
He has subsequently been released on an unspecific amount of bail.
If Vaughn is formally chargedm this will be his first drunk driving arrest.
Announced authorities on Facebook of the checkpoint, which was in place from Saturday at 8 p.m. to Sunday at 3 a.m.
“The intent of the checkpoint is to encourage sober designated drivers.
By publicizing these educational and enforcement efforts, the Manhattan Beach Police Department believes that drinking and driving and driving while unlicensed will be reduced.
The department continued via this online explanation:
Our ‘Zero Tolerance’ approach to enforcement sends a clear message to those who still don’t heed the warning to designate a sober driver before celebrations begin.
Simply put, ‘If you are over the legal limit, you will be arrested.
No matter your celebrity status, apparently.
The 48-year-old actor is best known for his roles in comedies such as Swings, Dodgeball and Wedding Crashers.
However, of late, he has landed more dramatic roles on the big screen and the small screen, such as starring as drill sergeant in the Oscar-winning Hacksaw Ridge and as a villain in True Detective Season 2.
Vaughn also had a run-in with the cops in 2001 when he was arrested after a bar brawl in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Actor Steve Buscemi was also stabbed in that incident.
An assault charge against Vaughn at the time was eventually dropped.
Variety is reporting that actor and musician Jackson Odell has died, after being found unresponsive at home. He was 20 years old. There is no preliminary suspicion of foul play, but a cause of death will not be announced until an autopsy takes place, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office confirmed to Variety.
Odell’s family released the following statement to The Hollywood Reporter: “The Odell family has lost our beloved son and brother, Jackson Odell. He will always be a shining light and a brilliant, loving and talented soul. He had so much more to share. Our family will always carry that truth forward. Our wish is that the rest of the world does as well. We are now going to try to make sense of our immeasurable loss privately.”
Jackson is known for his teen acting roles, notably as Gumbo on Nickelodeon’s iCarly and as Ted Durkas on ABC’s Modern Family. He also appeared in guest starring roles on Arrested Development and The Fosters. Jackson’s most high-profile role was on The Goldbergs, where he played the popular character Ari Caldwell.
He also had a burgeoning songwriter career. Odell wrote original songs for the 2018 film adaptation of Forever My Girl, based on the novel by Heidi McLaughlin. He also performed acoustic guitar covers of songs like “Dreaming of a Broken Heart” by John Mayer and “Hold On” by Alabama Shakes; videos of the performances were posted on Odell’s YouTube channel.
Actor Charlie DePew, who worked with Odell on The Goldbergs, posted a tribute on Twitter. “RIP Jackson Odell. I’m so happy that i got to know you. You were a true talent and an even truer person,” he wrote.

In response to these developments, the Mental Health Association of New York tells TMZ that its hotline has experienced a 25% increase in call volume compared to this time last week.
The number has been shared by number of celebrities on social media, which the organization says has resulted in more people “being aware of the resource and calling the Lifeline to get help.”
It’s simply awful that it took the suicides of two respected global figures for this to happen.
But perhaps some solace can be found in the silver lining that people with mental health struggles are taking the necerssary measures to make sure they don’t end up like Bourdain, Spade and so many others.
Arrested Development star Alia Shawkat has spoken out for the first time since the now-infamous New York Times roundtable interview with the show’s cast.
In an interview with Broadly, Shawkat shared how she was afraid that she wasn’t heard after speaking up when her male colleagues defended Jeffrey Tambor’s aggressive behavior towards Jessica Walter. Shawkat said she was upset and cried after the conversation.
“Women’s voices need to be heard and, ironically enough — I wasn’t able to be heard,” she said to Broadly. “I was really scared that the interviewer didn’t even hear me.”
When the subject of Tambor’s exit from Transparent among sexual harassment allegations came up in the NYT interview, some of other men in the room spoke up in praise of Tambor. In an ironic twist, the cast unwittingly staged a scene of the all-too-common dynamic between men and women in the workplace that effectively silences women.
That goes for when you’re on the record with the New York Times, or for when you find yourself trapped in a more everyday situation, where the risks might not be as high-profile but remain just as steep. A strange, derogatory calculus is at play to determine how and when a professional environment might become unbearable — and when it reaches that limit, determining what action can be taken.
Shawkat is not the only person with ties to the show to address the incident, although some statements underscore her point. The problem came to a head in that controversial interview, but it stemmed from years of women in their workplace not having space and security to speak up in the first place, something her male colleagues say they regret not being aware of.
“I misinterpreted what I understood to have played out, and more importantly the depth of Jessica’s pain about it,” Arrested Development creator Mitch Horowitz said to Deadline about missing the tension between Tambor and Walter. “I wish I’d known, or made a greater effort to know, the pain that it caused.”
Similarly, Shawkat’s co-stars Jason Bateman, Tony Hale, and David Cross issuedapologies for their behavior in the interview, with Bateman tweeting that he was “horrified” to not have realized how Walter was affected on set.
Shawkat’s interview exposed a two-fold problem: women grappling with the challenge of speaking up at work, and men needing to consciously enable open conversation in the first place. Speaking to Broadly, she posed the question that gets to the heart of it all: “How are we going to be more verbal and express things that make us feel uncomfortable?”
