Alex Rodriguez installs a Jennifer Lopez tribute above his bed
When Alex Rodriguez goes to sleep at night, Jennifer Lopez is right there with him — even if she's not. "Alex has a huge picture of himself and Jennifer above his bed in the master bedroom of his Coral Gables mansion," a friend of the Yankees alum dished to Us Weekly. "He says it's his favorite piece of artwork in all of his houses." We assume that includes the pair of "painted portraits of himself as a centaur … the half man, half horse" creature that an ex once said Alex had hanging above his bed when she dated him. At this point, A-Rod and J.Lo have been together for nearly a year and a half. When Jen makes it on the centaur bed wall as a sexy mythological beast of her own, we'll know their love is forever.

Three years after Naya Rivera's ex, Big Sean, released a dis track about her, Naya found the perfect way to turn the tables and shade him with his own music. In a preview clip for the Thursday, July 26, episode of "Lip Sync Battle," published by Cosmopolitan.com, Chrissy Teigen and LL Cool J look totally stunned as Naya takes the stage to lip sync Sean's infamous song, "I Don't F— Wih You," as the audience goes wild. "Took me by surprise on that one," her opponent, Lil Rel Howery, says after her performance. Naya and Big Sean began dating in 2013, eventually getting engaged in October of that year. By April of the next year, things had gone south and they called of the wedding. Naya claimed in her book, "Sorry Not Sorry," that she'd caught a certain tiny female singer with her then-fiance. "I walk in, go downstairs, and guess what little girl is sitting cross-legged on the couch listening to music? …It rhymes with 'Smariana Schmande,'" she wrote.

Said the insider: "Jen's always been very optimistic and has a glass half full attitude even during the roughest times. She's very happy and in a good place. You rarely see her without a smile on her face. … They both want what's best for the kids and have made a commitment to see that through."

Welp, it's certainly a novel use of social media. Kim Zolciak announced this week she wants to reduce the size of her breasts — and she's enlisting the help of her Instagram followers in choosing a new cup size. "I obviously have implants. I have the largest implants they actually make, but it doesn't look that big on my body because of just the way I'm built. But, I'm thinking about actually getting my boobs reduced," she said recently on her podcast, "House of Kim," (via the New York Post). "I already called Dr. Hochstein, who did my boobs and tummy a few years ago – he did my hernia repair and my tummy tuck after that, you might as well! And I said, 'You know, I feel like I should get my boobs reduced. They're heavy, my posture is terrible, I'm getting older,'" she continued. "I was thinking of going from like a DD to like a C. So head on over to my Instagram please and vote: DD or C." She went on to say her breasts changed significantly after she breastfed her children, adding that she was leaning towards a "full C," and that she already had a breast lift but is concerned about "the weight of them."

The queen has a serious issue with wedged shoes for some reason
When you're the queen of England, you get to dictate plenty of rules, including those related to footwear fashion. According to a weird new report from Vanity Fair, Queen Elizabeth considers wedged shoes anathema, therefore neither Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, nor Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, wears the apparently horrifying style around their mother-in-law. "The Queen isn't a fan of wedged shoes," said one royal insider (via Celebitchy). "She really doesn't like them and it's well known among the women in the family." While Meghan has not been spotted wearing the shoes around the queen since she married Prince Harry, Kate seems to limit her wedge-wearing to Queen Elizabeth-free events.

Jane Fonda reflects on anti-war activism, controversy ahead of new documentary premiere
On sept. 24, HBO viewers will can get a closer look at the life of one of Hollywood's most enduring stars, courtesy of "Jane Fonda in Five Acts." The 80-year-old actress and longtime activist opened up about the documentary and her own life at a Television Critics Association panel in Los Angeles this week, according to the New York Post. "I was a kind of pretty girl who made movies," she said, reflecting on how she went from movie star to a leading voice in the anti Vietnam War movement. "When I decided to throw in my lot with the anti-war movement, everything shifted. Everything. The way I looked at the world and other people, people I was drawn to. … Everything changed," she said. Jane also acknowledged she still regrets posing for a controversial photo in which she sat on an anti-aircraft gun in 1972. "I'm proud that I went to Vietnam when I did, but what I say in the film is true: I am just so sorry that I was thoughtless enough to sit down on that gun at that time. The message that sends to the guys that were there and their families, it's horrible for me to think about that. Sometimes I think, 'Oh I wish I could do it over' because there are things I would say differently now," she said. Looking ahead, Jane, who's also executive producing and planning to appear in a reboot of "9 to 5," said she's still on a journey of self development. "I wouldn't use the word revolution now, but constant change [is important to me]," she explained. "I'm only 80 and there are still a few decades to go if I'm lucky, and why be alive if you're not learning and growing and changing? … You may not be able to make your life longer, but you can make it deeper and wider."
