Paris Hilton wants to have three weddings
Paris Hilton has never been one to skimp on celebrating herself, so why would she miss out on the chance to go big with her wedding? According to the Sun (via Celebitchy), Paris is considering marrying Chris Zylka three times. Here's her reasoning: "For my 21st birthday I had five parties, so maybe for the wedding I'll have a European one, an American one, one for everyone around the world." Way to think about the little guys, Paris. Paris' aunt, Kyle Richards, has said whatever Paris and Chris do, it's likely to be over-the-top "like her [20-carat, $2 million engagement] ring," which, by the way, has its own 24-hour security detail.
NBC is reportedly 'appalled' by Megyn Kelly's interest in booking Catt Sadler
Will Megyn Kelly use her exposure on an NBCUniversal-owned show to focus on a controversial NBCUniversal personnel issue? According to the New York Post, Megyn wants to get former E! News host Catt Sadker on the "Today" show to talk about the fact that her male co-host was earning almost twice her salary before she split in protest. "They are appalled [Kelly] would use their own airtime to criticize the company," said a source. "It was bad enough when Debra Messing [who stars on NBC's 'Will & Grace'] weighed in on [Sadler's grievance] on the Golden Globes red carpet on NBC. Now Megyn is going to put Catt front and center — on NBC! Yikes." E!'s Frances Berwick said earlier this week that the pay disparity existed because Catt and Jason Kennedy "had different roles, and therefore different salaries," while Catt maintained that wasn't the case. "My experience, frustration and disparity was based on Jason Kennedy and myself being apples to apples," she said in an interview with THR. "We came to the network at the same time and did similar jobs."
Gal Gadot delivers moving speech as she accepts Critics' Choice #SeeHer award
According to the Critics' Choice website, the #SeeHer Award "recognizes a woman who embodies the values set forth by the #SeeHer movement — to push boundaries on changing stereotypes and recognize the importance of accurately portraying women across the entertainment landscape." This year it was presented to Gal Gadot for her performance in "Wonder Woman." "She excelled at every aspect of the universal hero's struggle in real life on and off the screen. But the really special thing is, she didn't do it for the glory. She didn't do it for the fame. She's not here for the money. She did it for us," Gal's "Wonder Woman" director Patty Jenkins said as she presented the award (via E! News). "[Gal] knew the great importance of this character and what she could mean to the world if well done," she added. Gal's acceptance speech was just as compelling. "The whole process of making this film inspired me and I hope it inspires others. When I started acting, there were very few female-led movies and even fewer female directors," Gal said. "This year, three of the top-grossing films were female led and one of them was directed by my wonderful Patty Jenkins. … There were eight other films in [the] top 100 which were directed by females. So although this is progress, there's still a long way to go. It's not only our job to entertain, but our duty to inspire and educate for love and respect." She wrapped up her speech by announcing her SeeHer statue was not hers alone. "I want to share this award with all the women and men who stand for what's right, standing for those who can't stand or speak for themselves," she said. "My promise and my commitment to all of you is that I will never be silenced. And we will continue to band together to make strides uniting for equality."

Nancy Kerrigan loved Olivia Munn's 'I, Nancy' spoof
Tonya Harding's been showing up on red carpets amid award season buzz around Margot Robbie's Tonya Harding story, "I, Tonya," which offers a Tonya-centric perspective on the events leading up to the 1994 attack on Nancy Kerrigan. Now, Nancy's chiming in, too. After Olivia Munn appeared in a Critics' Choice Awards spoof about the film and Nancy was all about it. "Loved @oliviamunn. She can play me anytime," she tweeted (via the Daily Mail). In the skit, a voiceover announces, :She was a world class figure skater who nearly had her leg broken by goons, yet went on to win silver medal at the Winter Olympics … Only to find out 20 years and a big Hollywood film later, this story was a little, uh … different than she remembered it." The camera then cuts to Olivia as Nancy, who asks, "Seriously? What the f—?!" before the title of the film is announced: "Olivia Munn in 'I, Nancy — What The $@#!'" At the end of the skit, we see Olivia making a face and referring to Tonya's initial claim she wasn't aware of Shane Stent's plan to attack Nancy so Tonya wouldn't have to compete against her. "She said she didn't know, huh?" Olivia says in the skit. "OK …" Olivia later retweeted Nancy's post, adding an excited "Ah!!!!!!!" to the caption. Margot, meanwhile, won the Critics' Choice Award for Best Actress in a Comedy for her performance in "I, Tonya."

Lil Wayne is fighting claims he fathered the teen he's been ordered to pay child support for
In 2015, a woman named Keiotia Watson filed suit against Lil Wayne, alleging he was te father of her son, Dwayne. She claimed Dwayne was conceived in 2001 and asked the court to issue a legal document confirming Lil Wayne was the father. She also wanted child support and help covering the teen's health insurance, which the judge ordered him to provide. This week, The Blast reported Weezy is going back to court about the order, which he says is based on false information. "I did not engage in a sexual relationship with Keiotia Watson in June of 2001 or at any other time," he says in court documents. "In June of 2001 I was residing in New Orleans, but my professional commitments required me to travel a great deal throughout the United States. I do not believe it is possible that I am the biological father of Dwayne Brown. I have never acknowledged Dwayne Brown as my son, nor was I ever made aware of his birth until I was served with the petition" he continues. "I am the loving father of four (4) children, all of whom I provided support for since birth. Up until now, I have never been involved in a child support case."
Oksana Grigorieva says she's suffering PTSD from her relationship with Mel Gibson
It's been eight years since Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva split but she says she's still dealing with negative effects from the relationship. In new documents filed as part of her court battle over a $108,000 bill she allegedly failed to pay to the forensic accounting firm she used in her paternity case with Mel, Oksana says she has "been diagnosed with PTSD due to domestic violence and the protracted, expensive and difficult paternity battle I had to endure," according to The Blast. Mel was charged with misdemeanor battery in 2011 following Oksana's revelation that he'd attacked her. She says she can't use the money Mel paid her as a settlement to pay the accounting firm because that could "result in a reduction of my child support and negatively affect the health and well being of my daughter." She also says she developed a tumor that will require expensive medical attention. "As a result of the stresses of litigation and bankruptcy, I was recently diagnosed with a pituitary adenoma and will need to go through treatments in the near future, with increased medical bills," she says in the documents. Mel and Oksana share one daughter, Lucia. He is also the father of eight other children.
