Andy Cohen on Kathy Griffin feud: 'So hate me …'
After Kathy Griffin's disembodied, bloody fake Donald Trump head photo stunt, she lost a number of gigs, including CNN's New Years Eve Live show, which she'd been slated to host. The job went to Andy Cohen and a feud between the two ensued. Now that she's back on tour following a hiatus sparked by the controversial pic, where does Andy stand with the comic? Howard Stern sat down with the Bravo star this week and asked him about the situation. "She's like, selling out all these venues. She's having a huge … she loves to have a comeback, she loves publicity. Everything's good for her," Andy said (via Us Weekly). The shock jock went on to ask if Andy felt "used," explaining, "Yes, you got the job on CNN, but why shouldn't you get that job?" That was apparently the opening Andy needed. "You know what, if you put it that way … I got the job on CNN, I'm on Bravo all these hours. I get it. So hate me," he replied. "I'll be that guy for you, if it makes you happy and gives you peace." He said something similar last month in an interview with THR, acknowledging that he believes Kathy hates him. "I've moved on," he said at the time.

Christina Aguilera weighs in on Kanye West after 'slavery' comments
Kanye West lost more than a few fans and social media followers after he threw his support behind Donald Trump and suggested that "slavery was a choice." But Christina Aguilera, who enlisted Yeezy to produce two tracks on her next album, "Liberation," hasn't lost faith in the rapper and designer. "Kanye, you know, he says things. His mind works in mysterious ways, I'll just say that," she says in the new issue of W. "I've always been a fan of his music … If anything, he gives with his gut. You can feel it in his beats. It's genuine. It feels like his truth, even if it's not going to go over well." Referring to a particular talk she had with Kanye, she explained that "he would go on about other subjects and stuff like that," but she chalked it up to Kanye being Kanye. "But then he would kind of remind me of myself," she recalled. "Like, oh, OK. He just has a different way of thinking and he'll trail off in his own thoughts. You get the sense, though, that there's a good guy there. Sometimes we're all just a little misunderstood." Stevie Wonder recently implied that some of Kanye's seemingly out-there statements could be a result of his not having adequately mourned the loss of his mother.
Lea Michele wants to wait to have children
Don't expect Lea Michele and Zandy Reich to go into family planning mode as soon as they tie the knot; Lea's not quite ready to give up playing a kid on the small screen. "I'm still playing roles that are under 21, so I kind of want to push that as long as I can," the 31-year-old "Scream Queens" star recently told Us Weekly. "Having a baby might mess that up for me." That said, the singer and actress says having at least one child of her own is "100 percent" part of her game plan. "I come from a very large Italian family, so that's very important to me," she said. In the meantime, she and Zandy have a few decisions to make about their wedding, including where to have it. "I've always been every excited to be engaged and get married, but it kind of ends there. As far as being someone that has had a Pinterest board for hundred years, I have not. So I'm kind of figuring it out as I go, and luckily, I have a fantastic fiancé who is equally as excited about this and invested in the process," she said. "One day we want to get married in Hawaii, the next day we want to get married in the Hamptons. We'll see where we land. I think we should just put a pin somewhere in the United States and tell everybody to just show up."
Hilary Duff speaks out about neighbor conflict
Following a social media tirade about her New York City neighbor's alleged late-night parties and pot and nicotine habits — and the neighbor's allegation Hilary's boyfriend, Matt Koma, tried to punch him — the "Younger" star is speaking out about the tension in her building. In a statement to E! News, the actress' rep says, "Hilary and her young son have been subjected to excessive secondhand smoke, late night noise, garbage in the hallways, and an overall hazardous living environment from this man for months now." The statement continues: "She tried numerous times in polite ways to handle this situation including countless sessions with the landlords of the building. As every mother knows, protecting your kid has to come first and foremost and that is her primary goal. She reached a breaking point after a 15 hour work day and yet another sleepless night." A rep for Hilary's boyfriend has also called the neighbor's assault allegation "untrue."

Tiffany Haddish says Beyonce was 'cool' with her bite-story leak
The mysterious Beyonce face-biter remains at large, but it sounds like Tiffany Haddish and Bey have moved on. While promoting her new Tracy Morgan series "The Last O.G." this week at the Turner Upfronts, Tiffany said she and Beyonce have talked since the Interwebs collectively flipped out over Tiffany's revelation in GQ that an as yet unidentified actress bit Beyonce's face at an afterparty for a JAY-Z concert. According to Tiffany, Beyonce was "cool" with Tiffany sharing the story. (The "Girls Trip" star did, however, sign an NDA promising not to reveal the biter's identity.) "Nobody's trippin' except for everybody else," Tiffany said, according to the Daily Mail. "I didn't think it was going to blow up like that," she added. Though she's denied it, "Love & Basketball" star Sanaa Lathan has been widely cited as Bey's face biter.
Zoe Saldana and her husband are raising their kids in a gender-neutral household
As her industry struggles to work out its gender equality problems, Zoe Saldana can at least rest assured that her three sons, Cy, Bowie and Zen, are growing up in a home where women and men are viewed on equal footing. For starters, her husband, Marco Perego Saldana, added her last name to his. She did the same, and is now technically Zoe Saldana Perego. "I have the most perfect partner in my life," she says in the new issue of Women's Health. "I've never met a male like my husband, who [believes] any woman is naturally his equal." The "Guardians of the Galaxy" star also says she and Marco have chosen a gender-neutral environment for their kids. "That 'Mom's the boss' thing is not going to happen in our family, because that means he's the fun one, the good guy, while I'm the disciplinarian," she explained. "I don't want my kids to look at women like, 'Oh, god, they're so annoying! They always come with structure.'" As much as she's focused on teaching the boys how to navigate the world, Zoe also says her sons help her see there's always room for personal improvement. "My boys are a constant source of strength for me," says the star. "They keep me on my toes, reminding me how much I still have to learn and grow as a person."
Jason Statham apologizes for allegedly using a homophobic slur
Jason Statham has issued a public apology for allegedly using a homophobic slur in the midst of a private conversation he had while shooting "Wild Card" in New Orleans a few years back. According to The Blast, a consultant on the film contacted Jason and told him he had a recording of the actor using the offensive word during an argument. "Someone approached me claiming to have a tape of me using terms offensive to the LGBTQ community during a conversation I had with my producing partner, on a movie set five years ago," Jason said in a statement. "I have never heard the recording and my multiple requests to hear the recording have been refused. I have no recollection of making any of these offensive comments. However, let me be clear, the terms referenced are highly offensive. If I said these words, it was wrong and I deeply apologize. Anyone who knows me knows it doesn't reflect how I feel about the LGBTQ community. While I cannot fix what was said in the past, I can learn from it and do better in the future."
Family of Blac Chyna's former assistant is reportedly planning to sue
Blac Chyna could be headed to court to deal with another lawsuit. Page Six reports the husband of Chyna's former assistant, Lorena "Patty" Hernandez, is planning to sue Chyna for allegedly abusing his wife and failing to give her worker's compensation. Patty suffered a seizure earlier this year at Chyna's Lashed salon and was rushed to a nearby hospital. This week, as plans were underway to take her off life support, news surfaced that her husband and other family members planned to file suit against Chyna after Patty's death. Meanwhile, a source tells Page Six Chyna has been less than helpful since the seizure. "Remember when the news broke and she said she was helping [Hernandez] and she was helping the kids and everything? She never did," says the insider. "I mean all she pretty much did was spread the word and reach out to her baby daddies, so she felt like, 'That's how I helped.'" The source also says Chyna never visited Patty in the hospital. "She was only there the first day when they found her at Lashed, but the only reason she came to the hospital was to tell the doctors and everyone not to give out any information to anybody. When I got there they didn't even want to give me information because she gave them the order not to say anything. After that she never came back," says the source. Chyna "did reach out to try to work something out, but the lawyers said not to go along with it and just to let them handle everything," the source adds. "So I guess she just got really upset and called and she was just being horrible." Patty, who was close with Chyna in addition to working with her on her clothing line and helping with Chyna's other projects, also appeared on the reality show "Rob & Chyna."
