50 Cent is all for 'another spin' with Chelsea handler
Chelsea Handler may have finally convinced her ex, 50 Cent, to support Joe Biden, despite Fiddy's open disdain for the Democratic presidential nominee's tax plan, which would hike taxes for the very rich. It seems the rapper caught wind of Chelsea's recent appearance on "The Tonight Show," where she chatted with Jimmy Fallon about her previous social media pleas to Fiddy to stop backing Donald Trump. Speaking to Jimmy, Chelsea teased that she'd be happy to, "seal the deal in more ways than one if he changes his mind and publicly denounces Donald Trump," per ET. Just in case her meaning wasn't clear, Chelsea, who also offered to pay Fiddy's taxes herself if he votes for Biden, added, "I might be willing to go for another spin if you know what I'm talking about …" The tax offer didn't do the trick but the rapper did pay attention when Chelsea sweetened the deal. "A what, another spin," he tweeted, sharing a clip of Chelsea on the show. He then slammed the president using a certain unprintable four letter word. "I never liked him," he added, playfully. "For all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed but that's history. LOL @chelseahandler @jimmyfallon." Chelsea responded by asking, "Honey- does this tweet me we can count on a vote for you for @JoeBiden? I'm happy to discuss this with you privately. My phone number is still the same. Your's isn't. I've tried calling you." No word yet on whether the rapper folowed through.

Brad Pitt narrates campaign ad for Joe Biden
Baseball fans who watched Game 5 of the World Series Sunday night were treated to a familiar voice during an ad aired by Joe Biden's campaign. As footage showed the Democratic presidential nominee engaging with children, adults, seniors and veterans from different backgrounds and heritages, Brad Pitt narrated a one-minute spot focused on Biden's ability to "be a president for all Americans," according to Esquire. "America is a place for everyone," the Oscar winner begins. "Those who chose this county, those who fought for it — some Republicans, some Democrats — and most, just somewhere in between, all looking for the same thing: Someone who understands their hopes, their dreams, their pain … to listen, to bring people together," he continues. "To get up every day and work to make life better for families like yours. To look you in the eye, treat you with respect, and tell you the truth. To work just as hard for the people who voted for him as those who didn't. To be a president for all Americans." Titled "Make Life Better," the ad comes after the Sam Elliot-voiced spot, "Go From There," which aired during Game 1 of the Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Tampa Bay Rays series. Other than his "SNL" appearance as Dr. Anthony Fauci earlier this year, the ad marked Brad's first major involvement in the upcoming election.
Drew Barrymore still struggles with pain from her 2016 divorce
More than four years after she separated from Will Kopelman, Drew Barrymore is still dealing with difficult emotions that surfaced during the divorce process. "I really did not take divorce well," the talk show host told Willie Geist on the Sunday edition of "Today." "Even now, I'm just like, 'oh, it's such a painful thing,'" she admitted (via USAToday). Drew and Will, who married in 2012, share two daughters, Olive, 8, and Frankie, 6. As a former child star and the daughter of two actors, Drew said her primary concern was making sure the girls didn't experience the kind of isolation and disconnectedness she experienced growing up. "[I knew] from not growing up with any family whatsoever that that was the last thing I wanted to do for my daughters," she said, adding that she hopes Olive and Frankie will get to appreciate "this amazing family" even though their parents' split was so public. "I think that's why I took (the divorce) so hard," Drew continued. "I was like, 'Ugh, the ultimate promise I wanted to make with [Will] and for [Will] was to have this amazing family and I found them and there's something not working that isn't livable.'" She added: "It took me five years to be able to speak with strength, articulation, perspective, hindsight, and see everything we did right," she said. "Because when we were getting divorced, it felt like everything was just wrong. … I think it applies to everyone who thinks that something will be forever and it's not."
Ice Cube defends his work with the Trump administration on Fox News
Ice Cube is holding his ground amid criticism over his decision to work with Donald Trump on the president's Platinum Plan for Black Americans, which Trump says would create millions of jobs in Black communities, increase investment in Black-owned businesses and provide criminal justice reforms such as diversity training for police officers. The rapper, who was previously shopping his Contract With Black America to politicians on both sides of the aisle, appeared on "Fox News Sunday" over the weekend, where he spoke with Chris Wallace about why he partnered with the White House in spite of Trump's past defense of Confederate symbols and failure to denounce white supremacy during the first presidential debate, among other things. "We make up 13 percent of the country, and we're only getting .5 percent of the wealth in the country," Cube said, according to Billboard. "They listened, heard what I had to say, pumped up their plan and presented it to the people." Asked how he responds to detractors who think he's a "sellout" for teaming up with the president, Cube said he's "not playing politics" when it comes to the ideas in his contract. "I'm willing to meet with anybody who could bring this to life and make it a reality," he said. "My daddy told me a long time ago, 'No matter who's the president, you gotta get up to go to work in the morning,' and I always remember that," Cube added before the end of the interview. "So no matter who's the president, I'm gonna get up and go to work in the morning." Earlier this month, the rapper claimed Joe Biden's team had reached out to him as well about his Contract With Black America, but they wanted to meet after the election. However, in a Sirius XM Radio interview Monday, the Biden campaign's co-chair, Rep. Cedric Richmond, denied they'd pushed anything until after Nov. 3, saying, he gave Cube his cell phone number and encouraged him to stay in touch.
Anne Hathaway confirms her youngest son's name, dishes on his 'cute' relationship with older brother, Jonathan
After keeping most details about her second child with Adam Shulman under wraps since his birth last year, Anne Hathaway confirmed his name during a chat about her new film, "The Witches," on "Live with Kelly and Ryan" Monday. "Now I have a beautiful almost-11-month-old boy, but I was pregnant when I made 'The Witches,' so technically he's all over that performance," Anne joked (via People) before mentioning the family's newest addition is named Jack. Asked how Jack's 4-year-old brother, Jonathan, is "coping" with having a sibling, Anne said the two actually get along fine. "No coping, just love," she said. "Now Jack's big enough to wrestle with, and that's brought a new element to their relationship that's really cute." Though she never announced Jack's birth publicly, speculation the actress had welcomed another child surfaced last December when she and Adam were spotted with a baby carrier in Connecticut.

Ryan Philippe throws shade at Ellen DeGeneres with 'Be Kind' post
Ouch! Ryan Phillippe took a break while out for a jog over the weekend to throw a little shade at Ellen DeGeneres. A fan screenshot published by JustJared shows Ryan posted a mid-run selfie that showed him under a billboard advertising Ellen's show. His caption? "And remember to be kind…. Wait." The dig, of course, was a reference to Ellen's long-held catchphrase, which former guests and employees came out in droves to trash on social media over the summer amid reports the talk show host fostered an infamously toxic workplace. She has since apologized and vowed not to let the toxicity continue on "Ellen."
Kyle Richards lost her mom, Kathleen Richards, to breast cancer in 2002 after skipping her annual mammogram for years out of fear. That's why the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star teamed up with breast surgeon, Dr. Heather Richardson and the Bedford Breast Center on Saturday, Oct. 24, to launch Annual Mammogram Day, a day of free mammograms for women in financial need. "I lost my mom to breast cancer 18 years ago. So, it's really important to me to use my platform and my voice and get out there and remind women to get their mammograms and do a self-exam every single month, because you really can save your life," Kyle told Us Weekly. "When I think about the fact that my mom did not have a mammogram for five years because she was afraid, it tortures me, you know? So, I don't want other women to suffer like that or their loved ones to suffer too." The Bravo star admitted that she "used to get anxiety" about the screenings because of what happened to her mother, and said she understands "the fear" around getting tested. But statistics from the National Breast Cancer Foundation show that one in eight American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer — and if the cancer is detected early while it's still localized, the five-year relative survival rate jumps to 99 percent. Kyle added that because she has four daughters, she's working to create an "open dialogue" about breast cancer.
Keke Palmer on Megan Thee Stallion shooting: 'Being strong shouldn't undercut her also being a victim'
Last month, Keke Palmer was one of the first celebrities to defend Megan Thee Stallion after she was trolled on social media for telling fans her ex, Tory Lanez, had shot her outside a party. Now, Keke's opening up about why she thinks Black women are so often criticized rather than supported when they reveal any vulnerability. "In my mind, I feel like it comes from the stereotype of strong black women," she says in the new issue of Fault magazine. "I think people feel whatever we're saying is not a big deal because we're strong. Black women are strong because we've been forced to be strong because of those types of situations. That doesn't mean that we want to be, or that we don't have a vulnerable side or get emotional." The actress, activist and singer added, "Being strong is a characteristic of a marginalized group, but that's not all that we are. When a Black woman is saying something, her being strong shouldn't undercut her also being a victim." At a hearing earlier this month related to the shooting allegations, Tory was ordered to stay away from Megan at all times and have no contact with her ahead of his Nov. 18 arraignment.
